Remember back when Motel 6 decided to leave a light on for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and turn over guests “with Latino-sounding names” for deportation? The motel chain’s decision to moonlight as mass deportation agents is set to cost the company millions, following legal action from a group of Latino guests racially profiled by the motel chain in Arizona and Washington state.

“Motel 6 will pay up to $7.6 million to Hispanic guests to settle a proposed class-action lawsuit claiming that it violated their privacy by regularly providing guest lists” to ICE, Reuters reports. “Motel 6 also agreed to a two-year consent decree barring it from sharing guest data with immigration authorities absent warrants, subpoenas, or threats of serious crime or harm.”

That probably should have been the policy all along, except it wasn’t, and it’s going to be an expensive mistake: “up to $5.6 million will go to Motel 6 guests who faced immigration removal proceedings after their personal information was shared,” Reuters continues. Last fall, Motel 6 admitted that motel employees regularly shared guest information with ICE. In two Arizona locations, agents conducted at least 20 arrests between February 2017 and August 2017 without any arrests at surrounding motels during that same period.

OK: other than being very skeeved by the phrase “prominent American Islamophobes with ties to the Admin and Congressional GOP” - I’m curious as to what the MPs are actually worried about: is this Tommy Robinson (who I’ve never heard of before) likely to bring a gang of aggro skinheads with him to, what? Go down to a street corner and try to whip up a mob to go stone a mosque, or whatever?
I mean, I’d naturally prefer these bigoted foreign cretins stay home and pollute the discourse in their own countries, rather than ours: but what am I missing about the “threat of violence”?

Democrats also picked up 12 seats in the Texas State House. Before, the ratio was 95-55 R-D, and was really close to being a supermajority for Republicans, which would have really sucked. Now, it’s 83-67. Current rules require 100 members to meet to be a quorum.

It’s been obvious from the comments from the campaigns that Sinema is going to win AZ. I thought Nelson in Florida was a longer shot, but that tweet from Trump is pretty much a confirmation that they are petrified that their giant ‘win’ in the Senate is going to turn out to be nothing from a terrible map for the Democrats.

I’m hoping so. Democrats will have to figure out how to build on this. Tuesday’s vote was presidential level. We’re not quite there yet, but it could move that way.

It’s probably time to figure out how to get a voting commission amendment on the ballot.

Not quite “nothing” (even if disappointing from King Orangeanus’ view): the Senate GOP is still going to have enough of an edge that hanging together under Mitch McTurtle’s iron-fisted control is going to let them fundamentally set the Senate agenda - the handful of GOP Senate “mavericks” have been replaced (AFAICT) by dutiful Trump-worshiping hacks - and it doesn’t seem likely that their Leader is going to change much.
One the positive side, though, with a Democratic-controlled House, the worst they can do is block/neuter legislation they don’t like (i.e. anything Dem); they will probably be unable to push much of Trump’s agenda (such as it is) on their own.
On the other hand, they will be able to ram through as many RWNJ nominees as they can bring up: on strict party-line votes, no doubt: but as we saw from the Kavanaugh nomination circus, they could care less about “comity”.

So they all spoke too soon and created a narrative

Now they have no place to go

it can no longer be about accuracy and every vote counts and the most votes wins no matter how long it takes to count

Now it’s about any argument any tactic so the narrative doesn’t change

They can’t possibly admit to being “,wrong”

Good luck with that! Bring Warm Clothes.

Cost of housing has gotten a lot more expensive over the last dozen years, especially for rental housing (still some affordable houses for sale). Your smart car should get you around fine except for maybe 4-5 days per winter. Roads are cleared pretty quickly Public transit is passable but expensive.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who has called Trump Jr.’s participation in the Trump Tower meeting “treasonous” and “unpatriotic,” predicted Mueller’s investigation is “going to crack Don Jr. like an egg on national TV,” in a book released earlier this year.

OK: other than being very skeeved by the phrase “prominent American Islamophobes with ties to the Admin and Congressional GOP” - I’m curious as to what the MPs are actually worried about: is this Tommy Robinson (who I’ve never heard of before) likely to bring a gang of aggro skinheads with him to, what? Go down to a street corner and try to whip up a mob to go stone a mosque, or whatever?
I mean, I’d naturally prefer these bigoted foreign cretins stay home and pollute the discourse in their own countries, rather than ours: but what am I missing about the “threat of violence”?

en.wikipedia.org (Tommy Robinson at Wikipedia)

Aside from being a hate-monger, he is also a convicted criminal.

He has been convicted for contempt of court over publishing information about defendants, entering the USA illegally on someone else’s passport (convicted in the UK), and fraud of £160,000.

I’m not taking shit from the GOP, I am frankly ticked off. I left the following on their Facebook.

That’s right, not in the mood. The GOP apparently wants this:

Before the hearing, Brett Johnson, attorney for the Republicans, said the lawsuit seeks to require all counties to contact voters after Election Day so their ballots can be counted.

There are 600,000 mail in ballots, these guys want to fucking EVISCERATE the whole notion of mail-in ballots by requiring contact. Fuck these asshats.

Hopefully the Arizona, Florida, and Georgia counts will proceed uninterrupted and actually include all the ballots. These Republicans are malevolent and corrupt beyond belief

I still wonder whether Beto lost because of the unreliable voting machines. It is an outrage that the state has been aware of this problem for years and has done nothing to correct this. I don’t understand why no one has filed a suit against the state for failing to replace their machines with equipment that works.

(he kinda sucked at that job too—From 2005 to 2007, he was responsible for the unsuccessful investigation and prosecution of Iowa State Sen. Matt McCoy, a liberal Democrat, on charges of attempting to extort $2000. The jury took less than two hours to return a not guilty verdict.)

Mr. Wright has updated his article “The Five Stages of Gun Violence” and moved it to the front of his blog again for new comments.
stonekettle.com

He wrote the article after the Aurora Theatre mass-murder, and kept updating it after every next one. Then mass-murders became so frequent that he only now updates it when there is an extraordinary or unusual mass-murder, because they are who we are, whether we like it or not. We have been forced into this by merchants of death and their congressional enablers, and society can’t seem to do the one thing to bring it under control: Get rid of the congressional enablers.

I want to start a News Show on Local Cable TV called “America is in Chaos”.

It would report the news of the day, without any spin.

No one would watch it, of course, because it wouldn’t push any of their buttons.

I’d also like like to start a newspaper, based on the same concept, called “The Truth”, which would do the same thing. It would also be an abject failure for the same reason.

We don’t talk to each other any more. We yell.

It’s just stupid. It’s no way to run a Republic. I don’t know if there is an answer, but what we are doing right now isn’t working at all.

I’m going to bed. Off to Alpine and Big Bend tomorrow for some gigs and rock collecting, staring at a perfectly black sky and the glory of the Milky Way, and decompressing after this truly bizarre and awful week. Off the grid for the next four days, dear Lizards, talk atcha on Tuesday next.

Recently I learned the public mass shootings are only 12% of mass shootings. I’ve harped before about the line between spree shooter and the man who kills his family, but I’d never actually grasped the ratio.

Spree shootings being public, are much more likely to get national attention. Workplace violence seems to only get such attention if it has a high body count, and family murders if they have a large count or the people aren’t the white colour.

The Secretary of State office says the county has reported all precincts, but the state does not show local elections this year (though it did in previous years).

My rental house in Montecito had sprinklers built onto the roof. They were basically just for psychological reassurance though since the roof had wood shingles and siding and the house was surrounded by mature trees. I did turn the sprinklers on during the Tea Fire, mostly just to see if they actually worked.

I went back this Spring after the mudslide to gawk, the house was a very modest beautiful 1960’s craftsman ranch style built by my landlady’s father, who also was the contracted builder for the Vedanta temple just up the street, designed by architect Lutah Riggs. The new owners of my old place were in the midst of tacking on a modernist cubic monstrosity addition and making everything horrible.

As for watching a town burn, that seems sort of like pyro-porn to me; I’ll pass.

After seeing the photographs that came out of Fort McMurray, this doesn’t look like it’s going to fare much better.

The guy in the helicopter was noting one of the problems with this fire as it burns houses is that palm trees next to them don’t just burn; they explode at the base and launch a burning missile palm tree in any direction up to a couple blocks away. They showed one on camera doing that, with the palm tree smashing into the side of a house and starting that house on fire.

So if Skeletor fails to survive the recount, that would mean that the “Kavanaugh bump” took down only a single vulnerable Dem: Heitkamp. Every other Dem who voted against him (told that it would cost them reelection) either retained their seat or passed it on to a Dem successor. Despite 26 possible pick-ups including ones in states that Trump won, a Scott loss would put them back where they started last year: 52 seats.

So if Skeletor fails to survive the recount, that would mean that the “Kavanaugh bump” took down only a single vulnerable Dem: Heitkamp. Every other Dem who voted against him (told that it would cost them reelection) either retained their seat or passed it on to a Dem successor.

Claire McCaskill is on line 2 and would like to have a word…

That’s right. I think honestly McCaskill is going to be the last statewide Dem that Missouri will have for awhile. Missouri seems to be going from historical swing state to red state. Happens on the other side too. I think Virginia is blue to stay and Colorado as well.

Greets and saluts from the NYC Metro area. There were marches nationwide last night to support protecting the ongoing Mueller investigation.

Trump fired Sessions. The direct and proximate cause for firing is because Sessions recused himself from interfering in the Mueller investigation. That’s it.

Trump fired him because he wants someone who will interfere and end the investigation into his criminal misconduct. That’s why he elevated (or thinks he can elevate) Whitaker to the post.

Turns out that Whitaker’s record is one that would make Peter Strzok blush in partisanship. Whitaker took positions and pushed policies in an official capacity that were highly partisan, despite being in role that should be nonpartisan.

If Strzok’s comments were disqualifying and fire-able offenses, then Whitaker’s are ones that elevate you to the AG? Only in Trumpworld.

Meanwhile, Trump and GOP continue to do nothing except promote gun sales in the wake of another mass shooting - the worst since the last one 12 days ago.

Thoughts and prayers are a dodge and deflection to do nothing by public officials who have an obligation to do something to protect the general welfare. The GOP is a wholly owned subsidiary of the NRA (itself a Russia branch). They are compromised and complicit, and now that the House control is back in the hands of Democrats, there’s a chance we’ll see some action - at least from the House.

But he’s not really being a cry baby — after all, these tactics worked in 2000 to shut down a recount and send us on a trajectory from which we haven’t recovered. With the aid of Trump, he is hoping to interfere with the recount and guarantee himself another position he can use to destroy our nation.

Confirmation bias at work:

Thousands of people retweet and like tweet claiming that Mueller’s going to be arrested Junior imminently (the acct making the claim is @sayshummingbird).

Few folks take the time to understand that this person doesn’t have any special insight, sources, or knowledge of the process.

It’s wish fulfillment.

Yes, I’d like to see the perpwalk, but is there anything in Mueller’s history that suggests that he’s leaking anything about anything he’s doing or has already done? He’s running as tight a ship as anyone could ever do under the circumstances. There’s no way he’s leaking.

Even when people try to figure out what he’s doing re: EDVA rocket docket filings, they’re inscrutable. He’s that good at holding the cards close and his indictment list even closer. That’s because he’s holding the entire deck. It’s left to others to speculate as to what he’s doing. There are logical inferences to be had - he’s working up the chain of conspiracy, based on who he’s indicted and obtained plea deals from thus far. That means there’s only a handful of people left - and nearly all of them are in Trump’s family and inner circle.

There’s also those on the periphery that he could go after, like the Roger Stone, Jerome Corsi, Assange, and Wikileaks angle, but the ones that people want to see are central to Trumpworld.

And that’s also why Trump is so desperate to end Mueller’s investigations - he knows that Mueller’s silence also means that he’s winding up for a big reveal now that the election is done. He must know how much dirt investigators have on him, and that’s before the Democrats dig in to all the rank criminality since Trump took office.

I think it’s possible that he’s just been ‘appointed’ to draw fire and change the subject from the midterm ass-kicking Trump got. As more information comes out (see Adam Pahramenko’s Twitter timeline, the guy is just fucking toxic), Trump will name a loyalist like Pam Bondi who won’t seem completely terrible by comparison.

You know, the more I read George Conway the more I wonder about his funky wife Kellyanne.

All I can think is in the evening he asks her how far she stretched the truth today and then they both chuckle as Kellyanne says: “You know how he is, I’m just doing my best at covering up for him that I can. That is what I was hired for and I am good at it.”

Which means she has no soul and cares more about getting paid and being seen on TV messing with journalist than she does about her country.

It’s true he’s a lightning rod, but it’s also true that it’s going to take time for him to get a replacement in the position. He’s unable to make recess appointments right now, and it’ll take time for whoever he nominates to squirm their way through the Senate. So every day that goes by with Whitaker in the office is a day that is going to haunt the DOJ when a lawyer challenges anything that he either knew or signed off on during his “tenure.”

I imagine most of them understand that this is Donny’s own attempt at a Saturday Night Massacre, that if they take the job they’re going to be facing a lot of questions about whether or not they’ll allow Mueller to do his job and release his report.

They do anything to mock marginalized groups like transgendered people. Fuckers. But yeah they’re going to harp on about how THIS IS FRAUD even though it’s not. It’s counting al lthe fucking voters.

Many years ago, a cousin (my father’s generation) had found a job by understating her age by 10 years. She worked there for many years but then when her real age reached 65, she wanted to retire. Let’s just say it took awhile before she could straighten out the paperwork and receive the Social Security and pension benefits she was entitled to.

( Certainly her pension would be underfunded because the costs were understated — but it was a large employer, so the harm there was minimal.)

(I almost said “weed” but that might be read in a couple ways…) So my job is to finish my coffee, enjoy a bit of schadenfreude over an obviously stressed Trump and the backlash on the Whittaker appointment, and get our stuff packed up and into the car.

Hate crime statute as I recall needs to prove that it was done explicit because of race, gender, religion. I’m not saying they can’t prove it was threats or intimidation, I’m saying I don’t think they can prove that he was targeted because he’s a protected group under hate crime statutes.

Why?

What happens if there’s a failure of the freezers? That’s happened elsewhere. As horribly tragic for the families hoping to rely on IVF for growing their families, no one considers it homicide.

These bass-ackward religious extremists want to criminalize women who seek abortions, birth control, and otherwise make it impossible to get appropriate care in the state for fertility issues.

And then we have this-the Austin bureau chief for the Houston Chronicle resigned after a review of some stories he had written couldn’t find some of the sources. (In other words, fake quotes.) The Chronicle is retracting eight stories entirely and others may be revised.

On May 4, the Chronicle ran a story by Ward about the upcoming convention of the National Rifle Association. The story was based on quotes from six people, none of whom could be found.

Because neither candidate got over 50% of the vote, Maine’s new ranked vote system is supposed to go into effect, and its believed that the Democrat Jared Golden will win in that round. Poliquin holds a slim lead in the initial vote, so he may challenge the legality of ranked choice voting in court.

Womp womp: ‘America’s Got Talent’ alum loses gig on ZZ Top guitarist’s tour after posing in MAGA hat, holding Chick-fil-A

“America’s Got Talent” alum Benton Blount abruptly lost his opening-act gig on ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons’ concert tour after his pro-Trump Facebook post got him temporarily banned from the social media website.

Blount was four shows into the seven-show slot when he learned he was kicked off the tour, South Carolina’s Greenville News reported.

The post showed Blount wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat and an “I Voted” sticker on Election Day while holding a Chick-Fil-A sandwich and drink. The photo carried the caption, “Someone reading this just got offended multiple times. My work here is done! #Vote.”

“Drove down here (Atlanta) from Greenville, South Carolina to the venue. I get a call from my friend from California who informs me that not only have I been banned from Facebook but as a result from being banned from Facebook I was pulled off of the Billy Gibbons tour, effectively immediately,” Blount said in a Facebook Live video.

I always figured Billy G was a good dude.

All the media staff at the next Sarah Slanders Party should all share their questions on a Google Doc and prioritize as a group, then if they got shot down the next reporter will repeat the question.

But they won’t because they’re aloof to the danger we’re all in.

Acosta was set up. Fuckers planned it to distract from the blue wave. Look at the smirk on that bigot’s face.

IN SHS next press conference, if the media doesn’t boycott it, they should only ask her questions about her use of falsified evidence to silence Jim Acosta. Question after question after question until the news conference is over.

or only ask questions about her favorite crayon colors

If Nelson loses, it may be because of bad ballot design by a Florida County AGAIN. Remember the “butterfly ballot” which cause many elderly Jewish voters to vote for anti-semite Pat Buchanon in 2000?

re: #441 dangerman

this is what happens when someone
predicts a result
that will eventually be known
with more or less accuracy and certainty
instead of just shutting the hell up and waiting

it’s morphed from
a pursuit of precision
to one in which he/they just cant have been wrong

They are out to protect Trump, not their own reputations. Which is another proof of them not being journalists.

I always figured Billy G was a good dude.

I went into a Twitter wormhole and discovered all the Star Trek TNG gang are on the right side of history. Picard, Number One, Data and Troi.

I started when Marina Sirtis got bitched out by Snoop WhateverAnimalHeIsThisWeek because he was tired of her politics (which is weird coz he is no rightie, but I digress) where he unfollowed her and she blocked his ass. Which of course Data chimed in. So I looked at all their timelines and was happy since TNG is my fav ST flavor.

Uh oh, it’s bad when the Wall Street Journal puts out an article criticizing Big Dump Trump for possible illegal activities.

He is vulnerable now. Step up the attacks. I think if he gets totally bombarded in the press Mitch and crew distance themselves and watch Trump burn. Maybe he will grow so upset with it all he folds and resigns.

Of course, he will blame it all on no one understanding his greatness and Washington corruption that he tried to stop.

OK I see, a fertilized egg has Constitutional Rights, but an immigrant don’t.

Then parents and grandparents should be able to get life insurance policies for those fertilized eggs. And considering that only 30% of conceptions make it to actual live birth, insurance companies are going to paying out a SHIT LOAD of claims.
