re: #2 Backwoods_Sleuth

So, instead of solving the problem by not accepting bigots and racists, they decided to bury their head and treat the problem as solved by not doing yearbooks.

That’s taking the long way around to try and deal with racism - claim you solved “problem” by getting rid of the platform where it was publicly expressed for decades.

The GOP are screwed because they are beholden to Trump, the GOP base, and to the billionaires boys club, in that order. They’ve set themselves down this path of wickedness and awful policies that harm the nation, and Trump’s created a cult of personality in his own Cabinet, complete with using acting cabinet officials to get around Congressional confirmation process.

None of this is acceptable in the best of times, and Trump is violating all the norms and standards with a pliant GOP rubber stamping this.

Who isn’t rubber stamping it?

Nancy and the Democrats. And Nancy has a strategy in place should Trump declare a national emergency - and it spit roasts the GOP - forces them to take a position. They can either support Trump and his illicit and bogus claims about a national emergency even they know doesn’t exist but which the rabid GOP base wants because it keeps the nonwhites out, or block Trump and suffer the consequences.

This is what you get when you get a party that sees power as an end to itself, and doesn’t care about anything else. Facts, law, or reasoning are out the window.

That would explain why McConnell apparently told him to back off the national emergency stuff. In even a relatively sane world (like pre-2016), there’s little chance a president can survive declaring a national emergency when one truly does not exist, and Congress has repeatedly voted against the policy he’s seeking to declare said emergency to institute. I don’t know what happens now, but I hope that there’s enough sane people among the Senate GOP caucus to do the right thing.

Whatever their rationale… whether it’s actually doing the right thing, preserving Congressional power, or saving themselves from future electoral defeat… at this point, I’m more interesting in outcome than process. It’d be nice to have them get to the right answer the “right” way, because in our system process really does matter, but at this point…

It means that everyone who testified and lied - like Junior, Cohen, etc., will see those transcripts forwarded to the DOJ and the Special Counsel for being charged for perjury (lying to Congress, which is a separate charge from all the other charges pending or could be pending against these folks).

It means that the number of additional charges are likely to pile up against some of these people, including Junior.

He’s suing the SPLC, as if the SPLC doesn’t know how to deal with lawsuits like this.

He got exposed as a racist bigot whose organization is a racist group and properly called as such. SPLC gets to do discovery, which includes document searches, email searches, text searches, and other data collection to show that he and that group are precisely catalogued as hate groups.

Discovery is a bitch, as he’s going to discover. If he thought this would cow the SPLC, he’s seriously wrong (and it’s a reminder that I’ll have to donate to SPLC here in the next few weeks).

The Trump administration is arguing in court that they shouldn’t be forced to reunite the children they kidnapped with their parents because that “would destabilize the permanency of their existing home environment, and could be traumatic to the children.”

this is goddamn ghoulish

does it really have to be said that their ‘permanent environment’ whatever it may be is with their goddamn parents?

BREAKING: Tonight the Trump administration filed documents that don’t dispute the recent report that there may have been thousands more separated kids. They’re arguing it would take too long to figure out where those kids are because they have no tracking system.

ok, i’ll bite.

I hope so. America may have been “discovered” but it was actually already here as were the natives.

from Shogun, two people having entirely different views on ‘world’ ‘and country’. One of them assumes way more than the other:
Blackthorn: Captain / sailor from Rotterdam
Mariko: Japanese

Blackthorn: 70 years ago, the kings of Spain and Portugal signed a treaty, dividing the ownership of the New World, the undiscovered world, between them. Your country is in the Portuguese half and is officially Portuguese. Lord Toranaga, you, everyone, this castle, everything in it, was given to the Portuguese.

Mariko: Excuse me, but that does not make sense.

Blackthorn: Perhaps, but it’s true. Legal documents gave each king the right to claim non-Catholic land and replace the existing government with Catholic rule.

Mariko: If this is true, how could the kings give themselves such rights?

Blackthorn: They didn’t. The Pope gave them the rights. The vicar of Christ on earth himself. In exchange for spreading God’s word.

Mariko: I don’t believe what you say is true.

Blackthorn: It is true. Pope Clement Vll sanctioned the Treaty of Saragossa in 1529, giving Portugal the exclusive right to your country.

Then Mueller can compare testimonies and see where the bullshit was flying or how it was flying to both him and to congress and it doesn’t match up.

Okay, I need some help from any willing LGF editors. I’m working on my 9/10/01 book and I’m currently writing a scene that takes place in a hospice facility.

Scene background: A man who has a ticket for Flight 175 is visiting his mother, who is dying of ALS, at this facility.

I’m currently fighting myself over whether or not I have too much exposition here or not. Opinions appreciated:

“The New Bedford Hospice facility sat on sixteen acres of grassy hills roughly forty five minutes north of Manchester, New Hampshire. The original complex of four stone buildings had stood for over 275 years, predating the birth of America itself.

New Bedford had been originally conceived as a religious facility and included a Church, a school, a rectory and a large library. A large fire in the 1830s had destroyed the interior of most of the buildings on the site, though it was later rebuilt and turned into a Union Hospital and storage facility during the Civil War.

The complex was used on and off in the decades following the war but, by the mid-1920s it had become completely abandoned. There were plans to revamp and reopen the site, possibly again as a hospital, but due to the effects of the Great Depression and World War II, these never came to pass.

So the site sat, unused, until a woman named Mary Rogers convinced her husband, a prominent doctor, to purchase and restore it in the early 1950s.

By 2001, the original complex of four buildings had expanded to eleven and the grounds of the properly had been greatly improved with the addition of a large fountain, several gardens, two gazebos and even a creek which ran through the middle of the whole property.”

Somebody has probably already replied, but yeah, you can probably do with less info. Thoughts that leap to mind:
— How important is the facility (and the staff) in the storyline?
— Is there a plot purpose for the backstory? Is the history germane to why the patient and/or the family chose this hospice?
— Physical description of the layout is probably useful, especially as observed by the visiting son. Has he been here before?

re: #140 goddamnedfrank

These people are insane.

Nope.

They are having fun. This gives them permission to hate people even more and talk big about arrests and death.

Conspiracy theories are narcissist candy. You get to be the hero and the smart one and “special” and anybody that doesn’t come around to your way of doing is part of the depravity destroying the world. It’s the “darker shade of black” wish fulfillment fantasy that C S Lewis warned about. But since conspiracy theories posit that absence of proof can be proof, there’s less risk of being wrong (and thus shamed).

Notice how the “conspiracy” is really long, but also entirely derivative? It’s because these are people that specifically want to interact with the world on a shallow basis, and when they procedurally generate “new” material they just cannibalize existing tropes. When they get analytical its similarly shallow and pseudointellectual: they’re doing what they think “smart” people do, and you can catch them experimenting with borrowed, misused language that sounds technical or scientific.

They feel powerful, they feel entitled to hurt people because they’re the good guys, they feel like they’re winning. Each new Barnum statement by Q is an opportunity to revisit these feelings, and when a “prediction” fails you can watch them flail and collapse inward until they find a way to re-invest, rebuild the heroic fantasy.

They come across as crazy because they’re ego tripping and probably a little turned on, and they want to keep that feeling going.

This is a question Stephen Colbert asks Supreme Court justices when they appear on his show. IIRC, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor disagree about whether or not a hot dog is a sandwich.

uh..whut???

District Judge Michael Gibbens sentenced Raymond Soden to five years and 10 months in prison. That was eight years less than what was called for in Kansas sentencing guidelines.

In doing so, the judge opined that the girls, who were both younger than 15, were partly to blame for what happened and questioned how much they were harmed. The judge pointed out that the children went to Soden’s house voluntarily and didn’t appear in court when he was sentenced.

“I do find that the victims in this case, in particular, were more an aggressor than a participant in the criminal conduct,” Gibbens said before sentencing Soden. “They were certainly selling things monetarily that it’s against the law for even an adult to sell.”

The judge declined a request to comment for this story.

The girls were 13 and 14 years old

At the sentencing hearing, the judge said he was “pretty familiar” with the girls already and that, based on what he knew about them, he believed it was possible that they could have set Soden up to be robbed.

Interesting piece on HuffPo about a progressive movement to fight conservatives in court using textualism in cases.

The Constitutional Accountability Center, founded in 2008 by litigator Doug Kendall, is the central hub for advancing progressive textualist arguments in the courts and to the public. Kendall, who died in 2015, argued that the debate over how judges should interpret the law was over: Textualism, which had largely been embraced by conservatives like the late Justice Antonin Scalia, had won. It was time for progressives to join the fight over the meaning and interpretation of the Constitution, Kendall said.

“Our founding belief was that if progressives spent less time fighting about the method of interpreting the Constitution with conservatives, we could spend more time discussing what the Constitution actually means,” said Brianne Gorod, chief counsel for CAC. “And that that’s a fight that progressives can win.”

Should be interesting to see how this plays out.

re: #181 Backwoods_Sleuth

Texas is facing two lawsuits over its ham-handed attempt to strip new U.S. citizens from the voter rolls, or at least to intimidate them away from voting. Latino voters and civil rights organizations are suing over the Texas secretary of state’s flagging of 95,000 registered voters as possibly being non-citizens who had registered to vote illegally. The people on the list had indicated they weren’t citizens when getting their driver’s licenses—but the vast majority had then been naturalized before registering to vote.

The whole effort was conducted in massively incompetent fashion, but reading Alexa Ura’s deep reporting on what happened, you can’t discount the malice that also had to be involved. According to Democratic state Rep. Rafael Anchia, when he asked Secretary of State David Whitley if he knew that anyone on the list had voted illegally, Whitley answered no. And when Anchia challenged him, “Well, isn’t it the protocol that you investigate and, if you find facts, you turn it over to the AG?” Whitley said he didn’t have an answer.

Time for what?

There is always “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone”. I remain uncomfortable with telling people who sinned 35 years ago and now reject their deplorable behavior (as always the caveat: a deplorable sin that was (a) not a crime then or now and (b) did not personally harm someone and (c) did not involve belonging to an organization such as the KKK) that the action was unforgivable and would prevent any future public service. We have people committing evils in the here and now — separating children from their parents, celebrating traitors from the Civil War, collaborating with Russians, destroying our environment, promoting white supremacism — and our focus is this?? Almost like what happened when the Access Hollywood tape was dropped and within a few hours, it was ignored because of the Wikileaks document dump.

We are all flawed. People do stupid things when they are still in school and then hope that the past remains buried — but when they reappear, people may be overwhelmed and fail to respond adequately. This does not apply to sociopaths who are skilled at brazening out situations and lying with confidence — such as most members of the modern GOP party

‘Scuse me, while I Godwin here.

Large numbers of children were also abducted from places other than Poland: about 20,000 children were taken from the Soviet Union and about 10,000 children were taken from Western and South Eastern Europe.[4]

Himmler mused on initiating similar projects in German-occupied France.[15] Hitler’s Table Talk records him expressing his belief that “the French problem” would be best solved by yearly extractions of a number of racially healthy children, chosen from “France’s Germanic population”. He preferred they be placed in German boarding schools, in order to separate them from their “incidental” French nationality, and to make them aware of their “Germanic blood”. Hitler responded that the “religious petit-bourgeois tendencies of the French people” would make it almost impossible to “salvage the Germanic elements from the claws of the ruling class of that country”.[15] Martin Bormann believed it to be an ingenious policy, noting it in the document record as a [sic] “sinister theory!”.[15]

Why concede that to conservatives when the god-emperor of both originalism and textualism, Scalia, ignored half the text of the second amendment to get to a result (individual right to keep and bear arms, totally unconnected to any form of militia) the founders would have loathed?

Probable Trump: We caught ourselves because of tough new Trump policies on illegal immigrants. See how well we are doing with enforcement. If it caught Trump, well you know, there are many many, a tremendous amount of illegals working. I bet you didn’t know that. So, yeah, a bunch of illegals had penetrated my workforce and they were caught. That’s tough, but you know, it is fair. Fair to the American workers. They have to go back. And with the Wall, they won’t be able to come back. That makes America safer and greater again.

Here’s the simple truth that assholes like Schultz deliberately fail to understand. Any society only works when most people basically have a reason to believe in the system. Since about 1980, the US ruling class has systematically been removing reasons to believe in the US system for everyone who isn’t filthy rich.

re: #227 Hecuba’s daughter
I agree, sadly, I agree, & I have really grappled with this. The complex issues raised by this situation highlight yet again how the racism that’s inherent in the founding of the US must be addressed and acknowledged-it cannot be glossed over any longer. So it is important at this point to look for a way for Northam to say ‘I was a horrible person and I know that there are things I won’t be able to do because of my earlier failures’, but also allow some forward movement. There are significant issues with a “truth and reconciliation” approach to US history & politics. Nonetheless, the goal is more and better democrats. Getting more and better democrats in office cannot happen if there are more and vile republicans in office as dems are thrown out-they’re already after Fairfax. Northam is deeply flawed and will likely go on to be prez of a university or foundation whether he completes his term or not-but a big future in politics won’t be happening for him-and regardless, he should do a listen and learn tour ASAP. The history of the US is too awash in racism at this point-let’s force those dems, like Northam, who are good in some areas, also be better in others, because today’s Nazi is in the White House and he can’t be forced to do anything he doesn’t want to do.

I’m really running out of patience with him. I feel awful for Abrams because for much of this country, this is going to be their first exposure to her and she’s probably running for Senate. Bernie just cares about Bernie and his response shows it.

I think his entire speech is online, right? Get in them comments and just start talking about Abrams.

I have to agree with that 100%. The GOP Post-Trump is a scary thought because I think they could do even worse.

That cesspit of Satan isn’t getting any less malignant under Trump. Anyone who thinks the GOP will go back to ‘normal’ Reagan/W Bush era levels of Republican evil after Trump is deluded.

That will only happen if they lose elections over and over.

Certainly wouldn’t object to that. They need to lose bad.

re: #352 Joe Bacon 🌹

Half of my office voted for him because they hate the queers.

I hate this country sometimes. The denial those fucking idiots must be in about their “tax cut” must be pretty entertaining, though.
