The cruelty is the point.

A Crete, Nebraska, man will face all-but-certain deportation as the result of a U.S. Supreme Court decision Thursday that some say makes it harder for immigrants who have been convicted of a crime to avoid deportation.

Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote the opinion for a 5-3 conservative majority that ruled against Clemente Avelino Pereida, a Mexican citizen who entered the U.S. illegally and has lived here for more than 25 years.

While the government was seeking his removal from the country, Pereida was charged with and convicted of attempted criminal impersonation, a misdemeanor.

The crime involved his use of a fraudulent Social Security card to get a job at National Service Company of Iowa, a business that operates near Crete.

The Department of Homeland Security asked the immigration judge to essentially ignore Pereida’s application to cancel his removal from the country after he had pleaded no contest to the state charge.

The question was whether Pereida’s conviction qualified as a crime of “moral turpitude,” which would make him ineligible for cancellation of his removal.

By statute, a defendant can do a number of things to commit criminal impersonation. But not all involve fraud.

For this reason, Pereida’s attorney, Carlos Monzón, argued that a conviction for it shouldn’t necessarily trigger deportation and that it was the government’s burden to prove that Pereida’s crime involved fraud, which it didn’t do.

But the immigration judge disagreed. Then, in March 2019, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals did, too. And Pereida appealed. [clip]

Gorsuch said it was up to Pereida to prove that his crime didn’t involve moral turpitude and that he didn’t.

State Senator Carol Blood has a bill before a committee to expose dark money groups who come into Nebraska within thirty days of an election on “hit and run” advertising campaigns.

The bill is opposed by Republicans and the American Civil Liberties Union.

I guess some principled stand regarding privacy of donations? (Though since elections are public, I don’t necessarily see how that would apply. And it’s different than the right to a secret ballot in the actual election.)

I don’t know why, but it’s pretty much the same position they held in Citizen’s United.

The only thing I can think of is they are treating privacy rights like a suicide pact for democracy.

I seem to have misplaced most of my jackets over the last 20 years. I’m down to an Antarctic expedition grade parka and an old work jacket with the city logo so I bought something to wear just to be warm. It’s a hemp zip-up hoodie with cotton fleece lining. It won’t win any fashion awards but it is quite toasty in 42 degree weather. I’d say it’s good down to at least freezing.

It should go well with my hemp hat.

Great news, ladies! If you only ever eat raw food, don’t drink or smoke and drink enough water, you can have a baby when you are 80 years old! At least according to this ridiculous man on Twitter who somehow has over 480,000 followers!

According to Roger Bezanis, who describes himself in his bio as “Whole Food Raw Foodism Founder, Diagnostic Face Reading & Health Expert, Author, Educator, I’m not a doctor, I teach them & define the rules of health today,” menopause is not a natural part of women’s lives, but rather a response to “bad diet choices, toxic habits and big medicine drug accumulation.”

One advantage of living in a winemaking village on the Rhine is that the Mormons do not even bother sending missionaries around here as it would be thoroughly pointless.

The Queen’s homeopathic pharmacist is selling ground-down fragments of the Berlin Wall to people who believe it will cure asthma and depression.

Ainsworths, which has held a Royal warrant since 1980 and also supplies the Prince of Wales, is charging up to £114 for a large bottle of tablets leading to warnings that vulnerable patients are being exploited.

The “remedy” is made by grinding down pieces of the Cold War relic and diluting it multiple times with lactose, water and alcohol.

Edzard Ernst, emeritus professor of contemporary medicine at Exeter University, said producers believe the tablets convey a “spiritual force” capable of bringing people together.

Among the claims made online in favour of Berlin Wall are that it treats asthma, headaches, aggression, depression, and insomnia.

Ainsworth itself makes no claims on its website about the benefits, however last night the company refused to explain why it sells the products.

Homeopathic Remedies are Often Made from Diseased Tissues and Discharges (Dr. Jennifer Gunter’s blog The Vagenda)

While homeopathy remedies do sometimes start with a plant (for example, arnica, which apparently treats everything), many are nosodes, meaning their origin is diseased human or animal tissues or drainage from diseased tissues. Apparently, 95% of homeopaths think nosodes are important medical care. Here are some examples:

Luesinum (also called syphilinum) — made from syphilis, likely from an ulcer. According to the website abc homeopathy, its use is for “utter prostration and debility in the morning” as well as shifting rheumatic pains, hereditary tendency for alcoholism, and ulcers in the mouth, nose, and on the genitals.

Personally, I use coffee for my morning utter prostration and debility.

And then there is….

Lyssinum (also called lyssin or hydrophobium) — from the saliva of a rabid dog.

Lachesis — made from venom from a pit viper. This one is used for hot flushes (or hot flashes) in menopause. I’m not exactly sure how to frame a woman having hot flushes as being like a pit viper, it feels a tad misogynistic.

Tuberculinum — from a tuberculosis abscess.

Meningococcinum — apparently from tissue infected with Neisseria meningitidis. The tragic thing is homeopaths recommend this to parents instead of the vaccine.

Well, except for the “homeopathic remedies contain no active ingredients” part.

Homeopaths will often offer their “remedies” in lieu of vaccines (there is a large overlap between homeopathy and antivaxxers).

There is a study going on right now to evaluate homeopathic remedies against Covid-19 in Brazil.

Homeopathy for Covid-19 in Primary Care: A structured summary of a study protocol for a randomized controlled trial (Springer)

Homeopathy combat against coronavirus disease (Covid-19) (National Institutes of Health)

Aim

Today, humanity is living through the third serious coronavirus outbreak in less than 20 years, following SARS in 2002-2003 and MERS in 2012. While the final cost on human lives and world economy remains unpredictable, the timely identification of a suitable treatment and the development of an effective vaccine remain a significant challenge and will still require time. The aim of this study is to show that the global collective effort to control the coronavirus pandemic (Covid 19) should also consider alternative therapeutic methods, and national health systems should quickly endorse the validity of proven homeopathic treatments in this war against coronavirus disease.
Subject and methods

With the help of mathematics, we will show that the fundamental therapeutic law on which homeopathy is founded can be proved.
Results

The mathematical proof of the law of similarity justifies perfectly the use of ultra - high diluted succussed solution products as major tools in the daily practices of homeopathy.
Conclusion

It is now time to end prejudice and adopt in this fight against Covid-19 alternative therapeutic techniques and practices that historically have proven effective in corresponding situations.

Allegedly the police are on the scene, but no arrests are taking place.

And, from the Independent (UK):

QAnon has merged with white Christian evangelicals, experts say — and the results could be lethal

*snip*

Colin Clarke, a senior research fellow at The Soufan Center who studies extremist violence, said the upheaval wrought by the Covid-19 pandemic, the recent presidential election, and the continued prosecution of several overseas wars has created a confluence of circumstances that scholars would consider a perfect incubator for belief in conspiracy theories and apocalyptic mass delusions.

“It’s not going to get better anytime soon, unfortunately… Conspiratorial thinking is very closely associated with high-anxiety situations and endless wars, elections and national tragedies,” he said.

Moreover, Clarke said there has been a “crossover” between the QAnon systems and evangelical Christianity that is going to imbue right-wing extremism with the sort of violent fanaticism more associated with al-Qaeda or Isis.

“Religious terrorism tends to be more lethal, because people believe they’re serving a higher purpose by committing acts of violence, as opposed to secular groups or ethno-nationalists who are fighting over territory or land,” he explained. “You can’t negotiate with these people, and you especially can’t negotiate with QAnon, because how do you assuage grievances that don’t exist?”

Clarke also posited that synergies between QAnon and the American anti-abortion movement — another religiously inspired faction that dominates the GOP — could spark extremist violence in the mould of the string of bombings carried out by Eric Robert Rudolph between 1996 and 1998.

Notably, Christians aren’t outraged by Jack Chick Publications pulling Jack Chick’s notorious tract on child molestation named “Lisa.” (In that tract, the protagonist is saved by accepting Jesus after raping his daughter and giving her herpes, because consequences don’t matter if you’re forgiven. The daughter is at fault for not accepting dad is a Christian now.)

Where’s the conservative outrage over this clear cancellation of Christian faith?

My 2 cents: My reading of “of all people” is just rubbing salt on Donnie’s wound.

Remember this quote:

“Running against the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics puts pressure on me,” Trump told supporters at an airport campaign rally in Macon, Georgia. “Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life - what am I going to do? I’m going to say I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics.”

Yet on Thursday Mr Bolsonaro continued to downplay the threat posed by the virus.

“Stop whining. How long are you going to keep crying about it?” Mr Bolsonaro said at an event. “How much longer will you stay at home and close everything? No one can stand it anymore. We regret the deaths, again, but we need a solution.”

[…]

President Bolsonaro has consistently opposed quarantine measures introduced by governors, arguing that the collateral damage to the economy will be worse than the effects of the virus itself.

“Unfortunately, Brazil has to fight, at this moment, two viruses: the coronavirus and Bolsonaro virus. This is a sadness for the Brazilians,” Mr Doria said.

According to the infamous Ali (wherever he may be), Gosar and Biggs are also involved. Lofren released a report about GOP lawmaker involvement.

The report also captures numerous tweets where Gosar invoked @ali on Twitter, which was formerly the account used by Ali Alexander, a leader of the “Stop the Steal” group, who said in several Periscope livestream videos that he planned the rally that preceded the riot in conjunction with Gosar and two other congressional Republicans, Mo Brooks of Alabama and Andy Biggs of Arizona.

The reality is that minimum wage isn’t going in the covid19 package, and should go separately. This vote is procedural, but GOPers will call it out as proof no one wants the minimum wage hiked.

When the film “Pirates of Silicon Valley” came out, my husband commented that the only person he truly respected was Steve Wozniak who was not a pirate; the titans of the PC industry — Gates, Jobs, Ellison, etc — all of whom were brilliant and visionaries — ripped off the work of others. The true creators never got the wealth or accolades of those who stole (or bought) their ideas.

05.03.1940: Stalin and his Politburo henchmen sign the shooting order against more than 20,000 Polish POWs and prisoners.

05.03.1953: well, you know.

I remember what a big blowup there was over Katyn: my hometown of Gary, Indiana, with a large Polish immigrant community, hosted a major conference on that topic in the 1950’s.

Although I fully understand the political ramifications of determining who was responsible for this particular massacre: Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union, but when you look at the bigger picture it is like two crackheads who break into a house and murder the whole family then arguing about which one of them strangled grandma…

Churchill and FDR intentionally suppressed the story because there was a danger that it would further damage the alliance. I must say I support that decision. Realpolitik. Katyn then came up during the Nuremberg trial. The Soviets wanted to pin it on the Germans through a pure technicality. Art. 21 of the Nuremberg charter said that the court shall take judicial notice of all official Allied acts. The Soviet judge and the main Soviet prosecutor both (absurdly) argued that it means that the case is automatically proven by the Soviet report and cannot be refuted by the defendants even in principle. The Western judges thankfully disagreed, each side could present their own witnesses (3 each), and Katyn was not mentioned in the judgment.

After the Cold War started Katyn became a useful anti-Communist tool, hence the Congressional hearings about it in 1952 (the Madden committee), probably leading to the conference that you have mentioned.

Former software guru and current crazy guy John McAfee has been indicted.

John David McAfee And Executive Adviser Of His Cryptocurrency Team Indicted In Manhattan Federal Court For Fraud And Money Laundering Conspiracy Crimes

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said: “As alleged, McAfee and Watson exploited a widely used social media platform and enthusiasm among investors in the emerging cryptocurrency market to make millions through lies and deception. The defendants allegedly used McAfee’s Twitter account to publish messages to hundreds of thousands of his Twitter followers touting various cryptocurrencies through false and misleading statements to conceal their true, self-interested motives. McAfee, Watson, and other members of McAfee’s cryptocurrency team allegedly raked in more than $13 million from investors they victimized with their fraudulent schemes. Investors should be wary of social media endorsements of investment opportunities.”

FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. said: “As alleged, McAfee and Watson used social media to perpetrate an age-old pump-and-dump scheme that earned them nearly two million dollars. Additionally, they allegedly used the same social media platform to promote the sale of digital tokens on behalf of ICO issuers without disclosing to investors the compensation they were receiving to tout these securities on behalf of the ICO. When engaging in illegal activity, simply finding new ways to carry out old tricks won’t produce different results. Investment fraud and money laundering schemes carry a strict penalty under federal law.”

Nah, Ezekiel doesn’t save that interpretation:

7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. (NIV)

7 as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them, in like manner to these, having given themselves to whoredom, and gone after other flesh, have been set before — an example, of fire age-during, justice suffering. (YLT)

Local areas should be able to do more, but what the federal minimum wage does is set a bottom for how much a company has to pay an employee, in effect, a company cannot decide that they can squeeze more money out by reducing pay for employees. This reduces the ability for a company to abuse its employees to have lower costs. It’s similar to requiring that all companies have to follow environmental regulations so that not only does it help the environment, but they all have to incur the same costs.

It’s similar to requiring that all companies have to follow environmental regulations so that not only does it help the environment, but they all have to incur the same costs.

if the national minimum wage is too low, then the federal government ends up subsidizing those lower wages through other programs.

yes the R’s want to kill those other programs and have been trying forever to do so.
while they do in fact exist, they split and then bury the true cost of the labor.

no private enterprise business ‘deserves’ to exist.

- if your business model cannot weather a hike in the pay of only the lowest wage earners
- if it requires an in effect government subsidy (however well hidden) to stay afloat
- and if you’re ok with that

Minimum wage is not enough to support a family above the poverty line, so many of these people also receive food aid, which are in effect government wage subsidies for companies like Wal-Mart.

Though of course while the sin of Sodom obviously had a sexual component, even a condemnation of homosexual acts cannot be derived from it, not to mention of gays as such. What the Sodomites were about to commit was gang rape. So just as easily it can be argued that rape culture was being punished. It also cannot be shown that the Sodomites were gay (rather than men ready to have sex with men): infamously, in prisons the “active” (penetrating) homosexual acts are not seen as a “gay” activity and are engaged in by self-identified straight men.

Sexual relations between males have to bee seen outside the purely (homo)sexual context: in British boarding schools, they simply served to establish the social order, in the military or in other situations where men spent long periods isolated from women, it was often seen as unhealthy to let sexual urges go unfulfilled, and so relations with men were tolerated or even accepted.

I mean, feed this to the QAnons and suggest that those speaking in favor of neanderthals are the real baby-eaters:

The Neanderthal remains provide “unambiguous evidence” of cannibalism, the researchers said. Other Neanderthal bones have also shown signs of cannibalism, but the Belgian site is the farthest north to do so — showing regional variability of Neanderthal mortuary behavior. The other discoveries were in France, Portugal and Spain, where scientists found a group of Neanderthals, including an infant, who may have been cannibalized by another group of Neanderthals.
