Pruitt isn’t gone. He just went to collect his payday from corporate polluters and the right wing grift circuit. /sarc not sarc

The sad thing is that turnover at Trumpworld is so beyond what every prior admin has seen that people don’t realize that with all the ongoing chaos and scandals and criminality.

Every admin has turnover. It’s inevitable. But with Trump, the turnover is so great and severe that it defies ordinary description.

And even that turnover is a minor story when compared to the overwhelming and pervasive criminality and misconduct among Trumpworld officials (Pruitt being just one of many who have engaged in misconduct).

Lest we forget, Pruitt should have been gone after the travel shenanigans. Except if he were booted, so too would Zinke (who did the same) and Mnuchin (same).

re: #5 Charles Johnson

Two possibilities, neither of which are good (that NATO is a protection racket, and the 2% of GDP on military spending is a goal, not an obligation).

1) He knows, and doesn’t care.
2) He doesn’t know, and doesn’t care.

His supporters are oblivious and don’t care either. They treat everything he says as an article of faith, and it’s clear that he’s created a cult of personality around his every utterance and lie. The media continues treating this as though it’s their obligation to regurgitate everything he says uncritically.

ICE said in a statement that Ovidio Batres Morales “requested to be returned to Guatemala without his family member.”

Ovidio said he doesn’t remember agreeing to leave without his daughter. But he also said he isn’t sure what documents he signed. Because he can’t read or write.

I mentioned all the terrible treatment to the immigrants was deplorable and that Hillary was wrong to say only a portion of Trump’s backers were deplorables.

I’m just curious - if Trump thinks we should pull all our troops from wherever because they cost so much (which generally isn’t true), what the fuck do we need a big boost in defense spending for.

Also, does he think we can project power worldwide without bases worldwide? Didn’t we lose a big strategic advantage when we were chucked out of Subic Bay, for example?

I myself haven’t eaten them since leaving home 38 years ago, but we’d have sardines on crackers occasionally when I was growing up. We’d also have canned salmon, usually with capers and sliced onions, on hot evenings.

I myself haven’t eaten them since leaving home 38 years ago, but we’d have sardines on crackers occasionally when I was growing up. We’d also have canned salmon, usually with capers and sliced onions, on hot evenings.

And when Dad went out of town, tuna noodle casserole!

My parents grew up in Pittsburgh, hundreds of miles from the ocean, with three toxic rivers. When they grew up, fish came in cans.

Germany is pretty lame when it comes to fresh fish and seafood, most of it is canned or frozen or smoked.

re: #114 Blind Frog Belly White

Considering that the GOP is pulling their court choices from the same pool of pre-blessed Federalist/Heritage extremists, it’s not a surprise that we’re seeing the judiciary packed with right wing extremists.

Trump’s choices are informed only by whether the nominee is seen as loyal to him. He doesn’t care about anything else.

His supporters don’t either.

And sadly, far too many Democrats and independents didn’t think enough to vote in 2016 as if their lives depend on it.

They better not make that same mistake again in 2018 (or 2020, or any other election for that matter).

Narrator: They will ignore the mistakes. They will crawl back into their bubble and think that the courts don’t matter and that both parties are the same.

I figure it’s related to the same reason Nigerian scammers say they’re from Nigeria, to avoid wasted effort.

False positives cause many promising detection technologies to be unworkable in practice. Attackers, we show, face this problem too. In deciding who to attack true positives are targets successfully attacked, while false positives are those that are attacked but yield nothing.

Except in the Russia case it’s a bit more complicated because they’re operating in the field with enormous numbers of fake accounts so they need a way to avoid targeting their comrades and trying to mind fuck another troll. So they not only want gullible marks to persuade and/or discourage from voting but they also want to avoid fruitless engagements and friendly fire.

That amazes me - I don’t think there was any single book I could have found that was “too far out” for my school that wasn’t actually from the porn shop downtown. That was 1982 in a small midwestern town, though we did have the University there which helped enormously. I’d say I’m not as fond of Vonnegut as some but that’s simple preferences.

Hell, I took university economics my senior year with a teacher who pushed the Laffer curve while I was nearly pure marxist and I got an A for the course because in the end I knew the material and that was what counted not our preferences.

Craig is a great Bond, maybe the best, one who’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. However, I’d have to say that, as far as “serious” Bonds go, Timothy Dalton is a close second; Licence to Kill was pretty damn dark for a Bond movie up to that point (and, I also have to admit, The Living Daylights is probably my favorite Bond film of all).

It always seemed to me that they spent all the years after Dr. No following exactly the same formula -
1) Bond gets assignment, goes to where bad guy is.
2) Bond bangs Bad Bond Girl to - heh heh - pump her for information.
3) Bond trades quips with Bad Guy (“No, Mr. Bond, I expect them to die.”).

There’s something I don’t miss about The Good Old Days - everyone smoking everywhere all the damn time.

When I started at

Genentech

back in 1982, 3 of the 5 people in my lab smoked. Mostly in the office, but the lab head chainsmoked so he’d walk through the lab with a cigarette. You could tell when he’d been using your bench, because he’d put his cigarettes on the bench, standing upright on the filter end, while he worked. There’d be a line of cigarette butts, all standing on their filters, on your bench.

That, and he’d have spilled ³²P everywhere.

There was a time when smoking in buildings in California had largely been outlawed, but it was still legal - and prevalent - elsewhere. Visiting family back East was jarring. I’d have almost forgotten what cigarette smoke smelled like.

Portland, OR was the first to ban indoor smoking. A friend came to visit, and we were walking around downtown, and he said, ‘Seems like an awful lot of people smoke here.’ I looked around, saw the smokers lighting up as soon as they hit the sidewalk when they got out of the buildings, and I said, ‘No, you just SEE them because they can’t do it inside.’

We do seem to be hitting some sort of discontinuity, in regards to the beliefs of many Americans, and what is real.

For example, two weeks ago a paper:

In utero nanoparticle delivery for site-specific genome editing

Long story short: genetic editors are progressing to where they can make changes to an organism in-utero.

None of this, or its implications, can play well with ancient belief systems.

Yet in the US, our government is designed so strongly to protect the minority interests of powerful men (and it’s almost always men) that said interests can ply the superstitions of the masses.

Riding in Mom’s car.

I used to love the smell of lighting a cigarette, but once the smoke had been through a lung or two, it smelled different. Bad.

That, and washing the windows in her car and seeing brown gunk on the paper towel put me off smoking.

I used to be the maintenance assistant at a 50 room motel in the downtown of my hometown after school my senior year in high school.

One of my jobs was cleaning all the big main windows in the entire hotel as the rooms opened. Every room every two weeks. Those old motel rooms were nothing but cigarette smoke as it was a businessman’s hotel. Good price and clean as can be.

Those windows would turn my 5 gallon pail brown in three or four rooms. We used industrial strength ammonia and that stuff cleaned those windows in one wet sponge wipe and then squeegee. The insides were worse than the outsides.

I had never really smoked other than sneak-trying it as a kid. After the motel, I never wanted to smoke ever.

Idaho - had a coworker many years ago, a Mormon, who moved to Idaho. We weren’t close - he was decent enough to be around. But I for one don’t want to reward the LDS by giving them billions of dollars for Idaho.

You would think they would see some economic advantage. Take Iowa for instance. There are some good colleges there, a lot of area to build in, and it’s a lot cheaper than California; the bottom half of Des Moines is nearly empty except for the highway and a few businesses. And with the internet and shipping, there’s not really a need to be on top of each other. And Des Moines itself is a pretty progressive city.

Former national security adviser Mike Flynn has a new job: He has joined a lobbying and investment advisory firm.

As he awaits sentencing for lying to federal investigators, he is going into business with Washington lobbyist Nick Muzin and his New York partner Joey Allaham with a new firm called Stonington Global LLC, they told The Wall Street Journal.

snip

Stonington Global will provide consulting and lobbying services for U.S. and foreign clients, Messrs. Muzin and Allaham said in a statement. The firm also will “help private investors and sovereign-wealth funds develop and execute investment strategies.”

The firm hasn’t announced any clients.

Messrs. Muzin and Allaham previously worked together helping a failed political candidate in Albania and on an influence campaign for the embattled Persian Gulf nation Qatar, according to foreign lobbying records. The pair ended their work with Qatar last month, after helping its royal family connect with U.S. Jewish leaders and associates of President Donald Trump to repair the country’s image, according to interviews with Messrs. Muzin and Allaham and foreign lobbying reports filed with the Justice Department.

Neither man knew Mr. Flynn, they said, but Mr. Allaham approached him about joining the firm because “his experience speaks for itself.”

That anti-SLAPP motion has to be a farce. The California statute allows you to file an anti-SLAPP motion only in support of an “act in furtherance of [your] right of petition or free speech under the United States or California Constitution in connection with a public issue.” Cohen’s conduct and communication with Davidson was entirely private, regarding a private civil contract negotiation, in which it seems Davidson was pretending to act as Daniel’s lawyer while in reality serving Cohen and Trump’s interests. Also, it’s worth noting that the contract in question appears to have been an overt fraud, with Cohen misrepresenting his own client’s knowledge, active participation and informed consent to the Court.

Re the bold. Last night we had a rock ‘em sock ‘em county executive committee meeting. The fans of the losing primary House candidate (mostly Bernie superfans) have been running their mouths nonstop since the runoff—it has gotten so bad that the state party chair came down to the meeting to try to calm things down.

One young women got up and basically said (paraphrasing), “You wanted us to vote and we voted not just in the primary but in the runoff too. And now we don’t have a progressive candidate to support, so why should we vote again.”

She then accused everyone in the room of laughing at her and making fun of her (nobody was doing that) and “you olds just ignore every great idea we youngs come up with and so we’re taking our ball and going home.”

Sigh—if losing one election is the catastrophe for the ages, we are in big trouble. In all of my years of voting in every election, I had TWO WHOLE YEARS with a Dem House Rep—that counts all the years I lived in Ohio and, of course, the years I’ve lived in SC. 2018 will mark my 25th House vote (and we’ll get to keep our charming Republican rep) so my percentage is .04. And I’m still at it…

BTW—the state chair’s appearance apparently didn’t work as one of the “malcontents” (perfect name for them, as their candidate’s name is Mal) was live posting from the meeting that she would “work against the candidate as much as she could and would be willing to burn everything down.”

I don’t like the guy who won at all, will not work for him or give him money, and he has little or no chance of winning anyway. But we do have a shot at the governorship this year—if the Berniecrats will just keep their fucking mouths shut about this shit.

I’ve been thinking further about that thing I posted the other day, that the people who voted for Trump are still the wonderful, inspirational people they always were and their vote shouldn’t change your opinion of them, which I think is bullshit.

It made me think of the mental and emotional difficulties I have about Bill Cosby. When I was growing up and he was doing standup comedy, we had 3 or 4 of his records. He was howlingly, pantswettingly funny. His writing and his delivery were genius. When he hosted “Of Black America”, back in the late 60s, he was so dignified and compelling that it seemed impossible to me that anyone could possibly fail to respect him, and thus his entire race.

Later, when the Cosby Show was on, he presented a black family in America that was not stereotypical, not the nouveau-riche Jeffersons, or the family living in the projects, but a middle class black family that weren’t just white people in blackface.

Then it turns out he’s a serial rapist. Everything that I always thought about him - was it still true? Did his routines from the 60s suddenly become retroactively not funny? No. They were still funny, viewed on their own. But now I can’t view them on their own anymore, because I know something horrible about him.

It’s the same with voting for Trump. It tells you something about that person that you probably didn’t know. Maybe it’s that they’re a racist. Maybe it’s that they’re okay with racism. Maybe it’s that they’re so damned oblivious that they didn’t pay attention the whole campaign, or figured it was just an act. NONE of those things is a good thing. How can it NOT change your opinion?

One reason why I prefer flying non-US-based airlines on international routes. They don’t seem obsessed with packing as many people onto the plane as possible. You might think Asian airlines, since Asian people are generally shorter and slimmer than Americans, would have the seats closer together. Nope. I swear I have more room on even the cut-rate air carriers than I do on US airlines.

To be fair, the Obama Administration deemed DOMA to be unconstitutional and declined to enforce or defend it.

Kavanaugh told senators in May 2006 that he “was not involved in the questions about the rules governing detention of combatants” during his time as a White House lawyer. Now, it is clear that Kavanaugh took part in at least one White House conversation about detainees.

snip

Kavanaugh replied, “Senator, I was not involved and am not involved in the questions about the rules governing detention of combatants, and so I do not have any involvement with that.”

In fact, in 2002, Kavanaugh and a group of top White House lawyers discussed whether the Supreme Court would uphold the Bush administration’s decision to deny lawyers to American enemy combatants. Kavanaugh advised the group that the Supreme Court’s swing voter, Justice Anthony Kennedy, would probably reject the president’s assertion that the men were not entitled to counsel. Kavanaugh had worked as a clerk for Kennedy. That meeting was first reported in The Washington Post. NPR independently confirmed the details with multiple sources.

Today, Kavanaugh has life tenure as a judge on the D.C. Circuit appeals court.

Durbin now says he feels “perilously close to being lied to” at Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing.

One story arc per season with the full continuity between episodes.

First arc? Preventing Putin and Trump from starting a conflict in the middle east at a little place called Tel Megiddo…
