Open thread.

MORE DISCLAIMERSTell me what's on your mind.

I have a few things on mine.

Like Melania finally emerging from exile, and her husband telling the media that they were "vicious and unfair" to her.  I guess when he was having unprotected sex with a porn star while she recovered from giving birth to his son that wasn't "vicious and unfair".

Like this video of these cops in Arizona beating  the crap out of an innocent man for no reason.  (This is why NFL players choose to kneel.)

Like the fact that literally anything black folks do in America warrants some kind of "color aroused syndrome" type behavior.  Let's go ahead and add walking your dog while black to the list of things that will cause the cops to be called on you.

Like that incredibly impromptu press conference given by Malcolm Jenkins of the Eagles today. 

Like the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, and what it means for civil rights issues going forward in this country. 

Like the fact that trump made such a big deal about NFL players honoring the national anthem, but he himself doesn't even know the words. 

Like the fact that Karma is so real. 

Thoughts?

"Like Melania finally emerging from exile, and her husband telling the media that they were ‘vicious and unfair’ to her. I guess when he was having unprotected sex with a porn star while she recovered from giving birth to his son that wasn't ‘vicious and unfair’.”

For all that wingnuts claim that lefties are easily outraged snowflakes, wingnuts are major (and majorly dishonest) offense-takers. And this is yet another example of that thing they do, where they deliberately pretend to not understand a joke in order to try to make the joke teller seem like he’s being unfair or cruel.

Trump is saying that all these jokes are “vicious and unfair” to Melania. Except the jokes are almost all about how Melania is running away from Donald because he’s horrible, and how she’s sexually unsatisfied, and she can’t wait for him to die so she can finally get his money.

Now, if you understand the basic concept of a joke ... who is the butt of those? Clearly, it ain’t Melania; it’s him.

And while vicious, none of them are unfair. Donald is a jerk who treats women like crap. Women only ever marry him for the money and eventually come to despise him. It isn’t defamation if it’s true.

Really. If she took half the shit Michelle took. She was called a mooch, ugly, mannish, a wookie and everything under the sun but did they complain 24/7? No, they took it all in grace and stride and respected the dignity of the office.
I agree 100% with the kneeling because I remember the time I was arrested for something that I should have been issued a citation at most and the cop taunting me by saying I was going to have to spend the weekend in jail. Luckily I have lawyers as friends and family and was out in under an hour but I know what he was doing, giving a Black man the business. Had I been a regular joe blow without the luck or means to obtain an attorney I would have spent the weekend in the pokie, missed work and had the cop and some handpicked "witnesses" swear I did a lot more than I did. Maybe he learned his lesson maybe not. Welcome to America.

BETRAYED
Chicago schools fail to protect students from sexual abuse and assault, leaving lasting damage


They were top athletes and honor-roll students, children struggling to read and teenagers seeking guidance.

But then they became prey, among the many students raped or sexually abused during the last decade by trusted adults working in the Chicago Public Schools as district officials repeated obvious child-protection mistakes.

Their lives were upended, their futures clouded and their pain unacknowledged as a districtwide problem was kept under wraps. A Tribune analysis indicates that hundreds of students were harmed.

Drawing on police data, public and confidential records, and interviews with teens and young adults who spoke out, a Tribune investigation broke through the silence and secrecy surrounding these cases and found that:

When students summoned the courage to disclose abuse, teachers and principals failed to alert child welfare investigators or police despite the state’s mandated reporter law.


Even in cases where school employees acted swiftly, they subjected young victims to repeated interrogations, inflicting more psychological pain and defying basic principles intended to preserve the integrity of an investigation.

Ineffective background checks exposed students to educators with criminal convictions and arrests for sex crimes against children. And CPS failed to disclose to other districts that past employees had resigned after investigators found credible evidence of abuse and harassment.

It means the left can't discriminate and violate the rights of Christians. SCOTUS tells the left Christians have civil rights.

And the left is shocked and outraged.

”Like the fact that literally anything black folks do in America warrants some kind of ‘color aroused syndrome’ type behavior. Let's go ahead and add walking your dog while black to the list of things that will cause the cops to be called on you.”

For what it’s worth, the black man in this story didn’t have the cops called on him.

What happened is that the cops were trying to solve a crime in the neighborhood and they put out a call for anyone to provide tips of any suspicious behavior they may have witnessed. In such a circumstance, you can expect a lot of the tips will be crazy/useless — people reporting their neighbors and the like. There’s nothing unusual about that.

What is strange is that the police didn’t disregard this picture of a man doing something totally benign and not at all suspicious, and instead they put out a flyer to the public with the man’s picture, to the effect: “Have you seen this dangerous individual? Please provide any information about his whereabouts.”

The police should really be smarter than this.

dinthebeast said...

"When are blacks going to hold Democrats accountable?"

They hold them accountable for representing their interests instead of trying to ruin their lives like Republicans do by voting for them.

1) I say give Melania a break. She had surgery and didn't feel up to supporting her repugnant beast of a husband who has humiliated her so publicly and so often that it can't be an easy job. She deserved a little time off.
As for the press coverage, that comes with the territory, and everyone knows that. See also: Clinton, Hillary, and Obama, Michelle.

2) Police poltroons, they always gang up and pile on and punch and kick from a safe distance while other pigs hold them down.

3) But, but, what if he was STEALING THE DOG???? I mean, never mind that he looks nothing like the suspect, he's black so he must be guilty whenever the white folks get scared, isn't that how it works?

4) They're not paid to listen, they're paid to make money for their networks by covering conflict.
That exasperated look on his face after he held up the "YOU AREN'T LISTENING" sign for the third time? That's how sane people feel about the destruction of the concept of facts by the goddamn Republicans, and I would imagine also how people of color feel when confronting yet another instance of racist bullshit while they try to get on with their day.

5) Perhaps justice Kennedy should spend some time among the folks his rulings affect, and see how much comity and polite discourse they encounter in an average day.

6) Well, on the bright side, if he knew the words, he might sing them, and as long as I never have to hear him do that, I can live with him not knowing them.
Still it's a disgrace for a president to not even bother to learn those two songs, so right in the sweet spot of repugnance and expectability where he lives.

7) Karma doesn't actually mean "poetic justice" the way it is mostly used these days, it's original meaning is destiny.
So if it's a Nazi's destiny to be vehicular manslaughtered by a wasted babysitter, I guess that's better than having a Nazi as a US senator, but I feel that to be a woefully ineffective method of killing Nazis, as would our grandparents, who developed much more scalable techniques when confronted by them.

As I recall there were several negative stories about Michelle on Fox. They used to use Michele Malkin, who wrote a very negative (and misinformed) book about Mrs. Obama. This went on for a while. If you do a quick internet search I bet you can find all types of negative stories about Michelle, even when Sarah Palin attacked her for trying to push kids to eat more fruits and vegetables. She was a good First Lady who tried to help kids "be best".

Total bullshit. The cake was not obscene. It was a religious objection about serving Gays that this case was about. It was also a narrow ruling in keeping with the mind width of stoopid fucking wingnuts.

mike from iowa said...

The reason and motive for the baker's refusal were based on his sincere religious beliefs and convictions," Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented while Breyer and Kagan, considered to be liberal-leaning, joined the more conservative justices in a majority ruling.

“This will surprise lots of people until they read what actually happened,” Richard Primus, a constitutional law expert at the University of Michigan Law school, told Newsweek of Kagan and Breyer’s decision to join the majority. “It’s a very specific case.”

According to Primus, the court found a way to rule in favor of Jack Phillips, the owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop, while making it clear the first amendment is “not a shield against anti-discrimination law.” Had that not been spelled out clearly, Primus added, there’s “not a chance” Breyer and Kagan would’ve joined the majority.


Not a word about obscenity.

So before Manafort even made it to the hearing where they might revoke his bail, the other indictment hit. The witness tampering is being indicted as obstruction of justice and conspiracy and doubles whatever sentence he gets in the trial he was attempting to obstruct.
He flips or dies in prison, or if we're lucky, both.

From the United Nations report on Drumpfuck's dumbfuckery-

The report acknowledges that previous administrations haven’t distinguished themselves by their concern for these inequities, but quotes Alston to the effect that the Trump Administration has “deliberately targeted the most vulnerable in society, kicking away every ladder of social wellbeing in order to serve Trump’s rich supporters and his alt-right agenda”.

In other words, it’s not that this government can’t take care of the poor. It won’t. It has no interest in doing so.

The blogger, Mel Gurtov, provides examples of the measures that Alston identified as particularly onerous to the most vulnerable:

• Debasing civil society: Supporting limits on voting rights with specious arguments about voter fraud and “covert disenfranchisement” such as gerrymandering and various ID requirements.
• Giving huge tax breaks to millionaires and big corporations while about 40 million people live below the poverty line—among them, 23.8 million considered in extreme or absolute poverty. The richest 1 percent of Americans now account for 20 percent of national income, double the percentage in 1980. “The proposed tax reform package stakes out America’s bid to become the most unequal society in the world,” says Alston in a separate statement (www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=22533).
• Putting new limits on basic anti-poverty measures such as work requirements for welfare, food stamps, subsidized housing, health insurance, and veterans’ benefits.
• Limiting opportunity: “The United States now has one of the lowest rates of intergenerational social mobility of any of the rich countries. . . . The equality of opportunity, which is so prized in theory, is in practice a myth, especially for minorities and women, but also for many middle-class White workers.”
• Promoting racist stereotypes that seek to stigmatize non-whites as being mainly poor, lazy, and unworthy of uplifting.
• Tolerating the highest rate of infant mortality, the highest rate of youth poverty, and the highest income inequality among all rich countries.*
• Treating Puerto Rico as a colony, and imposing fiscal discipline that fails to take into account people’s need of social protection. (The mayor of San Juan says it all: Trump’s , total neglect has to be called [out]. The United Nations says that when people are denied the right to access to basic human services — like electric power, like water, like food, like appropriate medical care — that it is a violation of human rights.”)

We have gone from a war on poverty to a war on Impoverished.

A little of both, I would say. I've seen police brutality since the Reagan administration (I moved to Oakland in '84) and not much was done about it because nobody who wasn't there when it happened saw it, and afterwards it was the cops words against the "suspects" words.
Then came the Oscar Grant murder, streamed in dying color on the internet, and everyone freaked the fuck out. Can a police officer actually do something like that?
All the damn time, said the people who actually saw it in their neighborhoods.
I think the real question is now that we have video evidence, will anything change?

We had a civil case against the OPD (because all of the corrupt pigs that didn't flee the country were acquitted in the criminal trial, like always) over the "riders" case that levied mandated reforms against the department, and they were actually making progress for a while, but Thelton Henderson, the no-bullshit judge who was overseeing the implementation of the reforms and repeatedly threatened to throw the whole department into receivership when they missed deadlines, has gone into semi-retirement, so I don't have the same confidence about the reforms that I used to have.

I don't recall a pol advocating violence against the public (Drumpf did several times) since Nixon had union hardhats helping beat up Hippies and protestors during the VietNam debacle..

In Trumpworld, EVERYONE IS SCREWING US!!! said...

What a dipshit. This is what Trump said at the G7 economic conference, foolishly and pointlessly making enemies out of every other powerful nation on Earth:


“‘It’s not a question of “I hope it will change,”’ he said. ‘It’s going to change, 100%. Tariffs are going to come way down because people cannot continue to do that. We’re like the piggy bank that everybody’s robbing. And that ends.’

‘If they retaliate, they’re making a mistake because you see we have a tremendous trade imbalance ... There’s very bad spirit when we have a big trade imbalance and they keep raising it so we never catch up. That’s not a good thing to do. And we have very, very strong measures that take care of that ... the numbers are so astronomically against them ... we win that war a thousand times out of a thousand.’”

Trump is Vlad’s bitch said...

Trump also said that Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea was a long time ago (you know, wayyyyy back in 2014), and why is everyone still being so mean to Russia?

Federal judge blocks Indiana from purging voters using Kris Kobach's discredited Cross Check scam since it returns a majority of false positives on double voters.

In other good news, a federal judge ordered EPA to show scientific evidence behind their claims that global warming is a hoax. This could get interesting.

What would not surprise me in the least is if Drumpf's favorite grope toy and her disgraced hubby Jarhead are in Singapore telling people they need to purchase Drumpf approved tickets to get into the lowest summit e3ver imagined by anyone.

Story going around Charles Krauthater has advanced nasty cancer and is on his way out.It behooves him to ask someone for forgiveness for his treatment of the Clintons during the impeachment witch hunt, imho.

Wait, what are you still doing around? I could have sworn you were sodomized with a bayonet and dragged around until chunks of you fell off on the road...
