The racism was baked into Little Donnie from his KKK father’s influence. Which came from the pimp grampa.

This shitsmear will go down in history - assuming there is a history, or human race when he’s done with us - as the absolute worst person ever to hold office in the United States.

We’re told that a kid at 16 1/2 shouldn’t be held accountable at 18 for being a racist fuckwit and that no one should ever pay consequences for slurs because ‘everyone does it’.

We’re told to our faces that places with migrants and refugees packed into rooms like sardines, no food, freezing conditions, routine neglect, etc. can’t be considered ‘concentration camps’ because it’s disrespectful to the Holocaust, when even Holocaust survivors and experts have been sounding the warning bells since before the Border ‘Crisis’.

We’re told that we have to respect the ‘elder statesmen’ of Senates past for being civil and compromising and to hold up avowed racists as proof that we need to compromise and work with the GOP that has told us, to our faces, that they’d rather stomp in our face than ever work with us, ever.

We’re told almost nothing bout the white supremacist attempted terrorist attacks that were thwarted only by good grace .

We’re told that Dems in Congress just aren’t legislating enough and are proving why everyone should hate them, when they’ve sent god knows how many bills to die at McConnell’s feet only to take the blame because Dems are always to blame for everything.

All the while Trump and his base continue to seemingly live consequence free lives, only haunted by the fact that there are too many brown people in this country and celebrating the possibility of changing that very soon by rampant sanctioned terror.

Oh, and we’re probably going to war soon because Bolton has power and influence again.

I want off this goddamn planet.

Said it before, but if we get to the point where we can make direct, unambiguous comparisons and parallels to the very conditions of the Holocaust, then we’re already too far gone. Isn’t that what “Never Again” is about, stopping things from getting that far?

Goes further back than that, the first “reconcentration camps” popped up in Cuba during the Cuban Rebellion in 1897. And terms like “internment camp” and “detention camp” came about not because they were inherently different from “concentration camps,” but simply as a way to avoid the negative connotations that they acquired as a result of the Holocaust. Functionally, the “internment camps” the US ran were no different than the “concentration camps” run by the Reich prior to the war’s outbreak.

Yes, that’s the basic point, isn’t it?

The two ships that were attacked left Saudi/UAR waters for the Strait of Hormuz.

Meanwhile, in Qatar, we have stationed the US Navy Sub Squadron Six. These are fast attack subs with the best sensors in the world. They cruise the Gulf and know *everything* that is going on. That is their job.

If the Iranians tried to insert fast boats and divers to attach limpet mines to those two ships, we would know well ahead of time. That’s their job, and they are the best in the world. The idea that the Iranians could do this is absurd.

But who could do it? Who has the weaponry to sabotage those ships before they left port on the Saudi side of the Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz?

Who really hates the Iranians to the point that they would try to blame the Iranians?

Maybe the same assholes who are perpetrating genocide in Yemen?

Could it be Our Friends the Saudis? Could it be the guy who chopped a Washington Post reporter to pieces because he called the heir apparent to the House of Saud out for being a tyrant? The Saudis had the weaponry. They had immediate access. Motive. Method. Opportunity.

Is it any wonder that European intelligence agencies are holding their powder?

Why hasn’t this been mentioned on Faux News?

If Joe wins the Primaries, I’ll happily vote for him, but I would prefer another candidate.

That’s just me. It’s not an ageist thing. It’s that I don’t want a “comfortable” candidate. I want a spitfire reformer who can actually get things done with control of the Senate and the House (which I think is doable, this cycle).

See, this is that thing that I have a problem with, the presentation of Trump as an “aberration” rather than the embodiment of all the dark and noxious shit that the GOP has been using for decades to attain and retain power. Portraying him as something that just popped into being may seem like a good idea when you’re trying to win over the “mushy middle” who wants to think of their votes for him as a “mistake,” but it also means that there will be somebody far worse than him running in the future, smart enough not to make the same mistakes he did.

This winter they withdrew from the Epic Pass, which is one of two big passes you can buy that accesses lots of big ski areas. A-Basin was in partnership with the Epic Pass since its inception over a decade ago. They were too busy this winter, especially on weekends. Now they are back to being a fully independent ski area.

Trump isn’t an “aberration”. He’s the end result of the Republican Party’s embrace of racism that began with Goldwater in 1964.

If you (outside the UK) who happen to be able (*cough* dailymotion *cough*) to view the 2019 series “The Planets (2019)” from the BBC with Brian Cox, you’ll be treated to quite the visual treat.

However, it’s not the first series to be called “The Planets” and I seem to remember watching another.

It turns out there have been several such:

The Planets (1985)

The Planets (1999)

The Planets (2017)

And one that used the Holst music as the background:

The Planets (1983)

… which Cox has also done as part of the current production as a stand alone entry.

The 2019 production has outstanding special effects, so much so that I suspect there will be viewers who could be very disappointed to know that the real images from spacecraft are usually much less pretty.

Cox goes with the high-drama, less data approach, which I guess is what is needed for the mass audiences.

Anyway, this is likely to be BBC’s top science documentary for 2019.

Looks like the meal card.

I used to eat in the towers basement. Iirc, there was an additional dining room in the medical school or engineer school.

I remember that some anonymous soul in one corner of the dining room used to peel the top waxed cover off the butter patties. And then would throw them onto the ceiling. Where, somehow, he managed to get them to stick. Throughout the term the numbers of patties would increase. At the beginning of the next term, they would all be gone.

Strange, the details we remember over half a century later.

IIRC, the Student ID had punch holes all over and had one’s social security number embossed on it. This being before the stealing social security numbers was easily done. Which is why I do not want to put mine on the web.

Well, that and the fact that in 1972, I apparently looked even more like a dork than I remember.

It looks like the US version will feature a different narrator, Zachary Quinto.

I have nothing against Zachary (don’t really know him), but he’ll be a far cry from Brian Cox. Zachary is an actor and not a scientist.

This will probably be, yet again, a dumbing down of a show for the American audience. Bring in an actor young people may recognize (Zachary plays Spock in the ST reboot movies) to get some name recognition.

Nevertheless, I think that they will soon find that, in their striving to cut government expenses, they will find simply killing the illegals the cheapest option. As I recall, a plain KZ was relatively expensive to operate, while a place like Birch Meadows was much cheaper to run.

Hi.

Unimportant local update.

My wife wanted to learn how to make tortillas from scratch, because a) store-bought ones aren’t so good, and 2) when she wants tortillas that’s a thirty-two mile round trip.

So she decided to learn how to make traditional tortillas. She bought a tortilla press from Mexico, then watched a bunch of YouTube videos from Mexicans showing how to make tortillas.

Tonight she made a soft taco dinner (though she had to use ghost peppers because we don’t have any habaneros). Yum.

Roger Stone’s lawyers filed a motion to get all the information from the DNC about hiring CrowdStrike when the DNC was trying to figure out if and who attacked its computer servers and on-line accounts.

Emptywheel speculates because Roger Stone is still trying to rodent copulate for the GOP, as nothing involving the DNC and CrowdStrike has anything to do with his cases. It would be really useful to the GOP however to know what mitigation the DNC has taken to prevent that sort of thing happening in the next election.

A New Form of Victim Blaming: Demanding that Rat-Fucker Roger Stone Get to Learn the Defensive Measures DNC Implemented in 2016 (goes to emptywheel).

What Stone’s lawyers are asking for

Roger Stone’s ongoing effort to float hoaxes rather than mount a credible defense has gotten the left and right denialists into a tizzy about CrowdStrike again. But this time it’s not just an effort to raise doubts about whether Russia hacked the DNC, but an effort to suggest that Democrats can only obtain law enforcement help in response to being hacked if they’re willing to share their own network defenses with the FBI, and do so while their candidate is under active investigation by the FBI.

As I noted back in May, Stone demanded unredacted CrowdStrike reports in the guise of challenging warrants based off a claim that Russia didn’t actually hack the DNC. In the latter motion, Stone claimed to have received three redacted CrowdStrike reports (though as is typical of the sloppy work his lawyers do, they can’t even get that citation correct).

The Verge depicting the demise of decentralised cryptocurrency with Facebook’s entry into that realm with Libra.

theverge.com

Facebook will run every aspect of the cryptocurrency, wrote the blockchain to support it, will only allow certain people to do the “mining,” &c.

If it is successful, then cryptocurrency becomes the realm of one of the most powerful corporations on the planet (hardly “decentralisation” promoted by libertarian cryptocurrency proponents).

On the other hand, trust is a big part of cryptocurrency, and Facebook is about as trustworthy as Roger Stone.

The article describes Facebook’s new project (just released) and what it means for the cryptocurrency world.

Hi.

Unimportant local update.

My wife wanted to learn how to make tortillas from scratch, because a) store-bought ones aren’t so good, and 2) when she wants tortillas that’s a thirty-two mile round trip.

I also did the same as tortillas are hard to find in Germany. They have since become more common, but I basically fall back on Dürüm, Turkish tortillas, that are much better than the pseudo-Mexican variety.

Firefox fans urged to update and patch zero-day hole exploited in the wild by miscreants (goes to The Register)

Mozilla has released an emergency critical update for Firefox to squash a zero-day vulnerability that is under active attack.

The Firefox 67.0.3 and ESR 60.7.1 builds include a patch for CVE-2019-11707. The vulnerability is a type confusion bug in the way Firefox handles JavaScript objects in Array.pop. By manipulating the object in the array, malicious JavaScript on a webpage could get the ability to remotely execute code without any user interaction.

This is a bad thing.

What’s worse, Mozilla says it has already received reports that the flaw is being actively exploited in the wild by miscreants, making it critical for users to install the latest patched versions of the browser.

From Indiana, he convinced over a period of about a year a teenager to kill her friend, film it, and photograph it, and he would pay her $9 million.

After he talked her into it, she recruited other friends (including two minors) to carry out the deed, believing she would be paid.

The White House knew about the domestic violence episodes checkering the Shanahan family past for months and went ahead with acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan’s pre-confirmation process anyway, according to NBC News.

Shanahan withdrew from the process on Tuesday after details started leaking out of a violent altercation between him and his ex-wife which resulted in her arrest, and another episode where his 17-year-old son beat his ex-wife with a baseball bat so badly that he fractured her skull.

Only in deranged wingnutsphere of Christian fundamentalists would anyone consider Trump and his actions to be Christian.

His actions hurt women, minorities, children, seek to deprive children food and medical needs, has led to deaths of multiple children as a result of refusal to provide medical attention, sought to deprive tens of millions access to health coverage, sought to deprive millions access to food assistance, sought to reduce housing assistance, and otherwise screwed charities through his tax scam that has led to a drop in charitable giving by individuals (the GOP has long claimed charities can and should pick up the slack in government assistance but that’s clearly not the case).

re: #44 Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus

If you (outside the UK) who happen to be able (*cough* dailymotion *cough*) to view the 2019 series “The Planets (2019)” from the BBC with Brian Cox, you’ll be treated to quite the visual treat.

However, it’s not the first series to be called “The Planets” and I seem to remember watching another.

It turns out there have been several such:

The Planets (1985)

The Planets (1999)

The Planets (2017)

And one that used the Holst music as the background:

The Planets (1983)

… which Cox has also done as part of the current production as a stand alone entry.

The 2019 production has outstanding special effects, so much so that I suspect there will be viewers who could be very disappointed to know that the real images from spacecraft are usually much less pretty.

Cox goes with the high-drama, less data approach, which I guess is what is needed for the mass audiences.

Anyway, this is likely to be BBC’s top science documentary for 2019.

I love Brian Cox shows. I hate Brian Cox’s voice. He is very smart but even my husband, who is a science geek engineer, uses his shows to go to sleep to. His voice is like a lullaby…I can’t watch his shows because of that.

Hubby noticed that a couple of his shows had dubbed voiceovers. So, apparently, we’re not the only ones.

This will probably be, yet again, a dumbing down of a show for the American audience. Bring in an actor young people may recognize (Zachary plays Spock in the ST reboot movies) to get some name recognition.

Haven’t heard that Shanahan committed any acts of violence himself. This is all a very sad family situation but, so far, bears no resemblance to the Rob Porter case.

He engaged in a coverup and potentially lied to investigators to cover for his son who committed the assaults. There was an earlier domestic violence incident, where the wife may have initiated the attack. There’s nothing good to see here. His conduct falls short.

Either way, the lies about the conduct and the inability/refusal of Trumpworld to find someone who didn’t have a checkered past shows that Trumpworld enables these kinds of people to work in the highest levels of government.

Looks like the meal card.

I used to eat in the towers basement. Iirc, there was an additional dining room in the medical school or engineer school.

I remember that some anonymous soul in one corner of the dining room used to peel the top waxed cover off the butter patties. And then would throw them onto the ceiling. Where, somehow, he managed to get them to stick. Throughout the term the numbers of patties would increase. At the beginning of the next term, they would all be gone.

Strange, the details we remember over half a century later.

IIRC, the Student ID had punch holes all over and had one’s social security number embossed on it. This being before the stealing social security numbers was easily done. Which is why I do not want to put mine on the web.

Well, that and the fact that in 1972, I apparently looked even more like a dork than I remember.

There were still butter pats and forks being adhered/embedded into the drop ceiling panels of the Towers Cafeteria in the early 80s.

I think the alternative cafeteria was a small one in Lothrop Hall - near the medical school and not the engineering building (Benedum).

President Trump at his 2020 campaign kickoff rally on Tuesday took credit for passing a veteran’s health care bill that was signed into law by former President Obama.

We passed VA Choice,” he said, referring to a bill that allows veterans to seek health options outside the Veterans Affairs-run system. “You go out now, you get a doctor, you fix yourself up, the doctor sends us the bill, we pay for it. And you know what? It doesn’t matter because the life and the veteran is more important, but we also happen to save a lot of money doing that.”

Trump is like the Pharoahs and emperors of antiquity, who demanded large numbers of human sacrifices at their funerals, to be their slaves in the afterlife. In Trump’s case he wants to take down everyone on the planet.

He thinks Trump’s support is much higher than indicated in the polls, because “people don’t like to admit they back him. They’re embarrassed about it. But they’ll vote for him anyway.”

Trump’s polling slightly lower than his win, when he was relatively unknown, and hadn’t yet screwed a large number of people over. I think the numbers are about exactly where they actually are. There aren’t many ashamed to be Trump but still supporting him people. They’re either proud racists, or unaffected by his stances and don’t give a care what he does as long as it doesn’t affect them (I work mainly with the latter group).

Unfortunately, I don’t think this is true. I think that’s a substantial part of his support - probably people like you work with, who would answer in the negative on a poll and justify voting for him in private to themselves.

Reminder that we’re the political junkies. We’re the ones that are tracking this shit day to day. We’re the ones seeing things like the effort the Dems in the House are doing to pass bills on the shit that the Senate refuses to touch. That effort that we see isn’t filtering out to your average voter who, thanks to media credulity and ignorance (willful and genuine) continue to leave the impression that the Dems aren’t doing anything in the House and are just ‘TRUMP EVIL!’ 24/7

Posted these earlier, and it kinda underscores the problem

The media has a full lock on the normalization of Trump and the continued aspersions against the Democratic party as a whole all for the sake of that magical golden mean. Trump is this bad, therefore somehow, the Dems must be just as bad or even worse just so Trump can be seen as being right in some capacity.

Let’s not give ourselves ANOTHER thing to be afraid of. We do have to be realistic that a national poll doesn’t equate to a win since it’s the EC that counts. But don’t go around making up people.

Yes. 100%. The appeal of transgressing, of doing something you know to be wrong just to stick it to people you hate, is great. And while there is a substantial minority who love going to hate rallies and shouting their hate out loud in public, there is a much larger group who are a bit too embarrassed to do that, but who watch CNN, and read the Times, and while they think red caps and white power signs are a bit gauche, they also really hate those Democrats and libs, because that’s what CNN and the Times trains people to do. They’re the well-off, middle class white people who you know from work and who are the parents of your kid’s friends. They know that you’re not supposed to say the quiet part out loud. But to actually vote for one of those socialists, those lefties, when some people say they kill babies? Nope.

The same pattern has been repeated by white people all over the world. In the UK, in Australia, white people continue to defy polls by telling them what they think they want to hear, and seething internally with resentment at a world that victimises them, that is so PC that it dares to make them feel ashamed about anything at all. White people, especially white men, aren’t supposed to feel ashamed. They’re not used to it. They’ve never been expected to feel it. And how dare those intellectuals, those academics, those journalists, make them feel too ashamed to say something out loud? So they lash out where they can, in private, in the voting booth. That’s why these elections all over the world continue to defy polls. A minority of people are proud to say the quiet part out loud. But there’s a much more substantial group who want to say it, and envy the freedom that others seem to have to say it.

Coates was pragmatic enough that his case for reparations had NOTHING TO DO with slavery.

It was about redlining and other forms of housing discrimination, about massive resistance to school desegregation (like when the State of Virginia closed all their public schools for 5 years rather than desegregate; and then “somehow” funneled a bunch of public money to “private” whites-only schools and black Virginians of that generation got no education).

The way post-WWII GI Bill benefits elevated an entire generation of white people, and were denied to black people.

He stuck to matters recent enough that living witnesses, living victims and living beneficiaries are plentiful. Also, well-documented federal policy.

We should be working to get our messages out, get our people registered, motivated to vote, and organized for the primaries and the election. There is plenty to do and you can find out online what it is.

Voter apathy or indifference is the best form of voter suppression…the bigger the turnout, the better the chances of removing Trump by both popular and EC vote.

re: #134 Feline Fearless Leader

There were still butter pats and forks being adhered/embedded into the drop ceiling panels of the Towers Cafeteria in the early 80s.

I think the alternative cafeteria was a small one in Lothrop Hall - near the medical school and not the engineering building (Benedum).

I think that you are right, the alt-cafeteria was in Lothrop. And I had forgotten about the forks in the ceiling.

I guess that there are many different skill sets amongst humankind. Perhaps some more useful than others.

re: #212 sagehen

Coates was pragmatic enough that his case for reparations had NOTHING TO DO with slavery.

It was about redlining and other forms of housing discrimination, about massive resistance to school desegregation (like when the State of Virginia closed all their public schools for 5 years rather than desegregate; and then “somehow” funneled a bunch of public money to “private” whites-only schools and black Virginians of that generation got no education).

The way post-WWII GI Bill benefits elevated an entire generation of white people, and were denied to black people.

He stuck to matters recent enough that living witnesses, living victims and living beneficiaries are plentiful. Also, well-documented federal policy.

He also made sure to specifically frame reparations in matters other than simply financial, which is what the hangup is all about. It’s not just about money, it’s about seeing the nation actually have a reckoning with the way its treated the black population, and that goes beyond just ‘write checks’. It’s about actually addressing the things such as redlining and preventing such from happening, it’s about actually taking tangible actions toward penance for the state-sanctioned sins the country has done. And TNC made it specific that it was a price that the country collectively had to pay.

Unfortunately most of the country still only seems to hear ‘WHITE PEOPLE MUST GIVE THEIR MONEY TO SHIFTY BLACK FOLK!’ and rage forever, and thus nothing will ever get fucking done.

then we’re talking odds vs the accuracy of the odds

was the 93% wrong? i dont think so
was there a 7% chance she could lose? yup and she did.

the question here is are the polls wrong
and that has to be because trump voters are participating in a poll and saying they will vote for someone else (or are undecided)

if they say that they’re voting for someone else, they’re also inflating some other candidate’s numbers

and enough people are doing this to skew the polls (tweety’s hypothesis)

There were also enough suppressed votes and outright hacked votes in the WI/MI/PA that gave Trump the 77K he needed in those 3 states.

Trump won Michigan by 11,000 votes. 50,000 people in Michigan voted for Jill Stein. There were entire precincts in Wayne County where all the ballots went missing.

re: #99 Anymouse 🌹

The Internet was a bad idea, part eleventy million:

Man catfished an Alaska teen and convinced her to kill for $9M, police say (USA Today)

From Indiana, he convinced over a period of about a year a teenager to kill her friend, film it, and photograph it, and he would pay her $9 million.

After he talked her into it, she recruited other friends (including two minors) to carry out the deed, believing she would be paid.

The federal government is trying the case as it was essentially an interstate murder contract.

I’m guessing murder for hire is the death penalty on the federal books. Like going to Talos IV.

That Orlando Sentinel video is giving me flashbacks to Eric Hoffer’s “The True Believer”. Basically, that it’s okay to violate the law because one is discontented, ‘they’ made me unhappy, and attacking ‘them’ will both make me feel better and fix America. Donald Trump gave me permission and told me it would make things better.

From the wikipedia:

Hoffer states that mass movements begin with a widespread “desire for change” from discontented people who place their locus of control outside their power and who also have no confidence in existing culture or traditions. Feeling their lives are “irredeemably spoiled” and believing there is no hope for advancement or satisfaction as an individual, true believers seek “self-renunciation”. Thus, such people are ripe to participate in a movement that offers the option of subsuming their individual lives in a larger collective. Leaders are vital in the growth of a mass movement, as outlined below, but for the leader to find any success, the seeds of the mass movement must already exist in people’s hearts.

sorry that it’s not you
it’s not a conspiracy
and you’ll never shame them into voting for you

you’re polling where you are because that’s the support you have vs the support others have

I think that there may be a method to this madness. By providing really weak counterarguments, they are training their followers to ignore actual counter-arguments.

Inoculation Theory:

The theory was developed […] to explain how attitudes and beliefs change, and more specifically, how to keep existing attitudes and beliefs consistent in the face of attempts to change them. Inoculation theory functions as a strategy to protect attitudes from change - to confer resistance to counter-attitudinal influences, whether such influences take the form of direct attacks, indirect attacks, sustained pressures, etc., from such sources as the media, advertising, interpersonal communication, peer pressure, and temptations.

The theory posits that weak counterarguments-arguments that are refuted-generate resistance within the receiver, enabling them to maintain their beliefs in the face of a future, stronger attack. Following exposure to weak counterarguments (e.g., counterarguments that have been paired with refutations), the receiver will then seek out supporting information to further strengthen their threatened position. The held attitude or belief becomes resistant to a stronger attack, hence the medical analogy of a vaccine.

About that cryptocurrency being created by Facebook:

Facebook has unveiled a plan to create an alternative financial system that relies on a cryptocurrency, called Libra. The effort, announced with a range of partners including MasterCard and Uber, will have to overcome concern that Facebook does not effectively protect the private information of its users, and thus cannot be trusted to handle financial transactions. Facebook plans to launch the project next year in what would be the most far-reaching attempt by a mainstream company to enter the world of cryptocurrencies. The social media giant hopes Libra will become the foundation for a new financial system not controlled by modern power brokers on Wall Street or central banks. The new financial system would help Facebook and other U.S. companies compete for financial transactions in developing countries, where WeChat—developed by China’s Tencent—already offers a payment system built into its messaging product.

Which is why he did so well in the midterms. Stop with the Trump invincibility bs. He’s consistently polling sub 50%. I get the reason why folks are cynical but without HRC as a foil, more people are seeing him as the empty suit fraud he is and it will only get worse when his economic policies start hitting his supporters in their ass.

If my one friend who voted for Trump starts rolling out the same HRC-class rhetoric about the Democratic candidate I will instantly and even more vehemently call him out on it this time around. The GOP has been trying to paint Warren with the same sort of crap since she got elected to the Senate. And I expect that the innuendo and crap will be tossed about the candidate regardless of who it is; health issues, “socialist”, etc. etc. etc.

If anything I’ll start in on my conservative Catholic friends on how Trump and his supporters don’t seem to care about infants, the poor, and all the others The Church is supposed to be defending. And I’ll challenge any attempt to make it a single issue discussion centered around abortion as well since I know that’s where he will start retreating to since that was one of the anti-HRC justifications in 2016.

And of course as we follow Yad Vashem’s link…. we learn the origin… Dachau became a place of internment for German Jews, Communists, Socialists, and liberals – anyone whom the Reich considered its enemy.

Fact check: True.

For a billionaire, or even a 100-millionaire — forking over 10% of their net worth in taxes WON’T AFFECT THEIR STANDARD OF LIVING ONE LITTLE BIT.

They’ll still live in the same place, take the same vacations, eat the same, drink the same, buy all the same things. Even the most profligate of spenders, ever if they’re heroin addicts… there’s a limit to what they can spend. After a certain point, more money is just numbers on a ledger.
