Given today’s tweeting, it seems to me that Trump must be feeling a bit of pressure.

Hah! A quote from HST found on Driftglass’s blog:

“Richard Nixon is a no good, lying bastard. He can lie out of both sides of his mouth at the same time, and if he ever caught himself telling the truth, he’d lie just to keep his hand in.”
— Harry S Truman

Arch-conservative pundit Ann Coulter is fingering Jews as a key part of a liberal “hate white men” coalition that she claims runs the Democratic Party.

The right-wing talking head posited that Jews and other Democratic voting blocs like LGBT people and black women actually despise one another — but unite around an implicit shared hatred for white men.

“I mean, you have the Muslims and the Jews and the various exotic sexual groups and the black church ladies with the college queers. The only thing that keeps the Democratic base together is for them to keeping focusing on, ‘No, white men are the ones keeping you down. You must hate white men.’” she said on Laura Ingraham’s show. “It’s the one thing they have in common.”

Driving drunk is a rite of passage for “conservative white youth” in Texas, especially the more privileged rural/suburban element. Lubbock has an incredible number of stationary object accidents from either yokel pissants coming into town on weekends or “traditional demographic” (aka “redneck”) Texas Tech students. I witnessed an accident in which an 18 year old native of nearby Shallowater was driving his giant pickup at 80+ mph on a narrow side street 2 blocks from the TTU campus. He hit 5 parked cars, including a police cruiser. A girl was thrown 20 feet against a lamppost from one of them and killed instantly. The body was not recognizable. Her friend, who had not been in the car, was standing right there screaming.

Drunk driving is not just about recklessness and ignorance, it is about a culture of privilege.

About three weeks ago I saw the aftermath of a horrific wreck on during one of my evening walks. Only one car was left on the flatbed tow truck, passenger side of the car was caved all the fucking way in from the front bumper to the rear quarter panel, both right side doors missing, every airbag deployed. It looked like an exploded bag of jiffy pop. Cops had shut Wood Ranch Parkway down heading in, making people divert around to Long Canyon while they completed their investigation. I surmised later that someone had definitely died in the wreck because someone set up a candle and flowers at the location and have been maintaining them ever since. I just looked the location and date up and found out what happened:

Officers arrived and declared the passenger, Ronald Kakeldey, 87, of Simi Valley, dead at the scene. The driver, identified as Janet Kakeldey, 78, of Simi Valley, was taken to Los Robles Regional Medical Center in Thousand Oaks with major injuries that were not life-threatening, authorities said.

Upon investigation, officers learned Janet Kakeldey had been driving a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe down Madera Road when it rear-ended another vehicle near the left turn onto Wood Ranch Parkway. The crash was at a low speed and caused minimal damage to the vehicle and no injuries.

After the initial crash, Kakeldey turned southbound onto Wood Ranch Parkway and drove at a high speed before crashing into the tree at the Lake Park Drive North intersection, authorities said.

Jesus that’s some horrible tragic shit to have to live with.

You really have to wonder what’s wrong with someone who would turn over poor, exhausted and bedraggled people over to the authorities, merely because they crossed an imaginary line on the ground separating one country from another. People don’t leave their families and escape to another country on a whim. They have to have some serious motivation — fear being one — to flee their homeland. A compassionate person would try to help them.

Since it’s Texas, these people should be asking themselves, What Would Jesus Do?

The thing is we’re all selective about law. Wingnuts have tried arguing that Kim Davis was a modern equivalent of those European Christians who ignored the law because they thought something was unjust. Yet you know they have a problem with assisting undocumented people. Law is law but sometimes you gotta do the right thing.

One of the only good things Glenn Beck did was to bring her story to my attention. It was a cheap attack on Al Gore but Irena was a hero who in the words of the Talmud saved the world entire. Nicholas Vinton was another hero. He was Jewish and not Christian iirc but as a British subject, he still went beyond what many people did.

You really have to wonder what’s wrong with someone who would turn over poor, exhausted and bedraggled people over to the authorities, merely because they crossed an imaginary line on the ground separating one country from another. People don’t leave their families and escape to another country on a whim. They have to have some serious motivation — fear being one — to flee their homeland. A compassionate person would try to help them.

Since it’s Texas, these people should be asking themselves, What Would Jesus Do?

It’s a fear response. “I just want to be left alone so I ignore things and don’t do anything that might piss off authorities. These kids have no effect on my life so screw them.”

Bascially the people who said nothing when “they” started coming for others around them, only to
learn the hard way that approach doesn’t always work out.

I drove truck over 3 million miles in every state east of the Mississippi in every condition imaginable and saw absolute nightmares. Drew me back to the realization that I somehow managed to forget the worst, or just accepted the fact that shit happens and I am fortunate I escaped. All the insane close calls. Inches. Seconds.
When I drove all those miles, in the beginning I was chilled. In the end, I was thankful I rolled on.

One finds out when one is placed in the crucible.

That said, seeking asylum is not illegal, therefore assisting someone in doing that is also not illegal.

re: #114 Charles Johnson

Trump’s xenophobic white nationalist agenda is the GOP bigot brigade base position. It’s the Stephen Miller position and it’s Trump’s position. Trump thinks we as a nation want this, but a supermajority opposes it.

Even corporate GOPers don’t want this. The GOP in Congress can’t pass the wall in their CRs because they know it’s a losing proposition for them; many of their corporate bosses need immigration to fill jobs that Americans can’t or wont do - and since the economy is supposedly quite tight for certain industries, it means that we have to look outside the US for those jobs (thinking high tech positions).

Then there’s the reports Trump used undocumented persons at his NJ golf resort, which means he’s breaking multiple federal and state laws to personally profit from them (and profit while delivering business from the WH at that - since he’s goosing the business there just by showing up from the WH, complete with the USSS and all the rest of the entourage). It’s yet another scam designed to deliver profits to Trump.

Never mind the GOP has been trying to stop that for decades.

Never mind asylum is legal.

On the question “would you help an asylum seeker if one came up to you,” I just put that question to my wife. She kind of gave the same answer I did that you’re only really tested when you actually have to face the situation, but she believes she would. (There is an advantage in this area that we know most people here, so if one of them came up to us seeking help it’s not exactly the same as helping a total stranger. The question becomes a lot tougher if you don’t know the person, though ethics and empathy dictate the same response.)

For a snarky take:

Crybaby President Can’t Handle Saturday Night Live Making Jokes About Him.
As they have with literally every other president. (Robin Pennacchia at Wonkette):

When I close my eyes and picture George H.W. Bush, I do not picture actual George H.W. Bush. I picture Dana Carvey as George H.W. Bush. Since SNL first premiered in 1975, they’ve been making fun of whoever the President is. Since the dawn of their even being presidents, comedians have made fun of whoever the president is. There are probably people out there who could tell you exactly nothing about Gerald Ford other than “He fell down a lot? I guess?” Making fun of whoever’s in charge — for those not living in a country where such a thing could land them in jail or executed — is what humans do. Generally speaking, most leaders — in America, anyway — have taken this in stride, as it is something that happens when you are President.

But apparently no one told Donald Trump that, because he is VERY UPSET about the fact that Saturday Night Live is making fun of him and it’s not fair because they should only be doing skits about how he is super great and handsome and the best President ever. Why can’t they do skits about that, huh?

(more)

Before “Saturday Night Live” there was “Laugh-In” which did the same thing. Nixon was one of their favourite targets.

Skewering presidents has been a staple of comedy for a long long time. Apparently Trump is not aware of that (or it hurts his feelings).

If you need some sort of deity to tell you it’s okay to help another person in distress or a life-threatening situation, you’re doing humanity wrong.

Of course, the point regarding TX is that far too many religious (usually Christian/usually white) people are perfectly fine with letting someone with brown skin drop dead in front of them.

Case in point are the border patrol guards who basically let that 7-year-old Guatemalan girl suffer an agonizing death.

Part of the delay is that the more Trump talks, and the more info he gets from the new plea deal (Butina comes to mind), the more the case is made in other aspects, new avenues for investigation, etc.

Mueller might have his end of things ready, but he might actually be waiting on EDNY/SDNY to do more - so that they have the full range in play - everyone in the remaining corner of Trumpworld (Donny, Jr., Ivanka, Eric, Jared, plus Trump Org., Trump Found., etc.)

They’re going to make it impossible for the GOP to ignore. It’s going to be overwhelming in scope, criminality, etc. that the GOP leadership will have no choice but to consider going along with impeachment. And they may also roll some of the NRA and members of Congress in as well - precisely because the GOP was rolling in the NRA money that came via Russian money/influence.

Matalin and Carville repped opposite ends of the political spectrum for years. It’s not unheard of.

They even went on TV and made a thing of ripping on one another. It was professional comedy and it shows how some take the political battles as pure entertainment.

What I am surprised about though is why Trump hasn’t asked Kellyanne to have Goerge shut up.

I still think Kellyanne looks at all of it as a job that entails not taking it seriously. She is paid to lay down smoke screens and that is what she does. She sees it as a game…a chess match to stifle Trump detractors in the press. She is the Trump deflector.

She probably laughs at how ridiculous some of what she says sounds, yet works, and her and George talk about how bizarre it all is. And then they cash their checks. It’s all very cynical.

At this point, Mueller’s just one of several prosecutors involved at the federal level.

SDNY, EDNY, and even the NJ prosecutors are potentially involved. The NJ AG is investigating Trump’s potential hires of undocumented persons. The NY AG is investigating Trump Org and everyone from Cohen to CFO Weisselberg are spilling their guts to these investigators.

I think there might be an investigation in Illinois too, given Trump’s tax lawyer getting raided twice in recent weeks, or it could be an extension of the SDNY work.

re: #76 retired cynic

Found this on the book of faces, and it made my hair stand up. Twelve ways to identify a malignant narcissist:

aconsciousrethink.com

I found a very educational youtube clip about this a couple of months ago:

The 4 Types of Narcissism You Need To Know

I dated a capital-N Narcissist a couple of years ago, not long after arriving in state. Her friends described her as “quirky” and everyone knew she was “different” but hey, she’s geeky, you’re geeky, why don’t you meet?

It took me getting basically chewed up and spit out to discover that she’s a fragmented, phenomenally insecure child in a woman’s body, said insecurity being compensated for by a vicious, cold-blooded Narcissist operator personality. I said after the breakup that the difference between this woman and a serial murderer is only that she’s too lazy to physically kill people. Our mutual friends acknowledged that they knew she was “a bit fucked up”, but I got a look under the hood and what I found was downright evil.

The icing on the cake is that she’s an elementary school teacher…

Between her and Trump, I have a conviction that we should treat Narcissism as a threat to public health, like we do sex offense; if you’re diagnosed as such, you have to register with the government, inform your neighbors when you move, and be kept from positions of power.

Also, remember that the narcissistic entity, i.e. the focal point of the malignant “love”, does not have to be the self of the narcissist. It can be the ingroup an individual belongs to as well, and is then called Collective or Group Narcissism.
Other than the narcissistic entity, the symptoms and reaction pattern to the narcissistic entity being threatened or wounded (see narcissistic rage) are the same.

On a personal note, only those whose narcissistic entity is their racial ingroup are recognized for what they are, racists. Other entities tend to be misinterpreted as devotion (ingroup religion), party loyalty (ingroup political party), patriotism (ingroup nationality), etc.

Honestly while Miller using spray on hair is funny on some level it’s also deeply sad because I’m sure the only reason he did it is because everyone knows Trump pathologically views his own baldness as synonymous with weakness. This is the reason he swirls his combover into a massively constructed siege work of dyed cotton candy, tape and hairspray. So, in a pathetic attempt to mitigate the bullying he knew his boss would inflict on his apearance Stephen went down this desperate path, failing so spectacularly that Trump certainly can’t help but mock Miller mercilessly and reflexively hate him deeply for representing his Administration in such a visibly ridiculous manner. It’s an odd thing but this spectacle illustrates the pathology of Trump’s own image issues and how his shallow focus on surface level optics debases and abuses even his most ardent and loyal henchmen.

-20 degrees F is a typical winter day here in the wild north country. I might have to take a few extra minutes to warm up the car.

One thing that I appreciate about the extremely cold winter days, though, is the clarity of astronomical observations. Because the temperature difference between the upper atmosphere and the lower atmosphere is much smaller in the winter, it is easier to see stars and planets, despite the discomfort involved in going outside with a telescope in temperatures that are far below freezing.
