¡°Our political system has been overrun by people with opinions and ideas. This country should not be beholden to someone who constantly fights for American values. Our nation clearly wants an independent voice who does not speak for any of them. I know that I can win by rising above partisan squabbles by bringing together a large coalition of nobody whatsoever.¡± At press time, the announcement that Schultz was considering a presidential bid had received a highly positive reaction from Howard Schultz.

Robbing paranoid Olds really does seem to be the only game in Conservatown these days.

GoFundMe will refund more than $20 million in donations made by hundreds of thousands of people to an?online effort to build President Trump’s border wall?with Mexico, after the Iraq War veteran behind the crowdsourcing effort suddenly changed his plans Friday on what to do with the funds.

In an update to the “We the People Will Build the Wall” campaign,?Brian Kolfage?wrote that rather than donating the money raised to the federal government, it would instead be handed over to a private nonprofit he said he had established in order to construct a wall himself.

Um, yeah, a NONPROFIT! Where the money will totally go and be used for things, legitimate things. That’s the ticket!

One of my pet fascinations has been all of the rampant fraud in the cryptocurrency “market” over the past few years. A particularly dubious example comes to us via Ars Technica today:

In March 2018, Matthew Iles¡ªthe head of Civil, an ambitious blockchain-for-journalism [sic] startup [said] … “We’re feeling very bullish about the value of our tokens as it relates to the value that has been estimated in all of the agreements that we have shared with you guys so far.” Civil aims to orchestrate the creation, sale, and management of an Ethereum-based crypto-token, known as CVL, meant to serve as the underpinning of a slew of recently founded ambitious news sites.

“Blockchain-for-journalism“? Trust me, nowhere in the article does it make clear what that means exactly.

My favorite bit is about the company’s main backer:

Civil’s primary funder, ConsenSys, announced earlier this month that it would be cutting 13 percent of its workforce. How exactly this will impact Civil is anyone’s guess¡ªbut it can’t be beneficial.

Well, let’s see how that’s going:

Lol. For the Least-Reassuring Headline on a Company’s Media Website Award, “The sky is not falling” is a strong contender.

What’s the big deal!?

You may have noticed that I’ve been relatively quiet of late.? I’ve just been too damn defeated.? The US went crazy and everyone jumped out of the woodwork to normalize it.? Hey!? The former president of NAMBLA is here to lead the Boy Scouts into the future!? Hooray!

When I heard that Kennedy is resigning from the Supreme Court, I decided I’m done for good.? I just can’t stand it.? Especially with shit like this:

The consequences of Republicans¡¯ denying a Supreme Court seat to President Barack Obama became real this week, as the court dealt a sweeping blow to public sector unions and voted to uphold President Donald Trump¡¯s travel ban. Both votes were 5-4, and Justice Neil Gorsuch voted with the conservative majority both times.

The reason Gorsuch is on the court at all largely comes down to one person: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who refused to give Obama¡¯s nominee, Merrick Garland, a shot at filling the seat vacated after Antonin Scalia¡¯s death in February 2016. Garland never got a confirmation hearing or a vote; many GOP senators refused to even meet with him. McConnell pushed the argument that the next president should get to choose the next justice.

Democrats didn¡¯t control the Senate at the time. But as they watch the Supreme Court now hand down major victories for conservatives, with Gorsuch playing a pivotal role, some of them wonder if they could have done more to stop McConnell.

¡°We should have shut down the Senate,¡± Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) said Tuesday. ¡°We made a calculation that we were going to win the 2016 [presidential] election and confirm a nominee. And it didn¡¯t work out.¡± [Oopsie!]

¡°Hindsight¡¯s 20/20,¡± said Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.). ¡°I think I would have liked us to take an even harder line.¡±

Fuck you.? Fuck all of you Congresscritters.? Fuck your families.? And fuck you, Middle America.? Y’all got invited to the arson party so grab a can and burn, baby, BURRRRRNNN.

That was hardly explosive, or the kind of damning failure that would send people to prison or be?worse than Watergate, as Trump defenders charged. But it was something. If true.

It¡¯s not true. As the?Ellen Nakashima?reported, the application to wiretap Page did disclose that one of the sources of intelligence to generate suspicion that Page might be acting illegally came from a political source. It was mentioned in a footnote on the FISA application. Nunes was?asked?about this on?Fox & Friends. He did not deny the point. Instead he insisted that it wasn¡¯t good enough because the disclosure was merely a footnote. ¡°A footnote saying something may be political is a far cry from letting the American people know that the Democrats and the Hillary campaign paid for dirt that the FBI then used to get a warrant on an American citizen to spy on another campaign,¡± the distinguished Republican explained.

Notice how ¡°The FBI LIED about the Steele dossier¡± has been scaled back to, ¡°The FBI did not highlight the truth about the Steele Dossier in the part of the application we bothered to read.¡± So now the main attack on the FBI is about font size. No doubt all the subsequent memos Nunes is promising to release will have additional bombshells.

It’s hard to think of a more damaging story to this particular candidate, at this particular time, than the one?The Washington Post just reported?about Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore.?Allegations that he had a sexual encounter with a teenage girl when he was in his 30s?directly?pierce Moore’s decades-long image as?a righteous candidate who would bring morality back to American government.

Leigh Corfman said that when she was 14 years old and Moore was 32, he took her to his house and touched her sexually, The Post’s Stephanie McCrummen, Beth Reinhard and Alice Crites report. Three other women said that Moore pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s. Two said he offered them alcohol when they were underage.

I’m always surprised to see a self-righteous Republican godbotherer stand accused of sexual misconduct.? /s

In Westeros*, however, winter is a season of indeterminate length caused by some kind of opaque variable natural process (perhaps a weird wobbly planet tilt). ?Winter is a season just like summer, which is ending. ?After winter comes summer (do they have spring? ?no idea). ?After summer comes winter.

Oh, and the “danger” in Game of Thrones is an army of the undead, which prefers to appear in winter. ?In our world, it’s the climate itself that’s the danger (e.g., hotter temperatures, superstorms, etc.).

Aside from the temperature getting hotter and colder, it’s quite a stretch to use that as a link between our world and Game of Thrones.

In his biannual post to try to temporarily assuage his vague feelings of white guilt, King Wanker Supreme, David Brooks, bemoans the lack of sophistication in his “friend with only a high school degree”, who “[froze] up” when faced with a fancy deli menu listing posh sandwich-delicacies with funny names.

Recently I took a friend with only a high school degree to lunch. Insensitively, I led her into a gourmet sandwich shop. Suddenly I saw her face freeze up as she was confronted with sandwiches named ¡°Padrino¡± and ¡°Pomodoro¡± and ingredients like soppressata, capicollo and a striata baguette. I quickly asked her if she wanted to go somewhere else and she anxiously nodded yes and we ate Mexican.

See!, Poors eat Mexican.

If the internets have any justice, I wish someone would create a meme with a laughing Brooks wearing a big wig, exclaiming “Let them eat fine Italian deli meat!”

P.S. I bet Brooks is the type of person who sniffs at someone with a certificate from a non-B.A.-granting “culinary school” saying it qualifies as higher education. ?Thus, I’d venture that most chefs, with “only a high school education”, probably know a fuckton more about cuisine and quality ingredients than a wanker like Brooks.

You gotta love that it came from the Russian Foreign Minister:

A reporter asked whether the firing of Comey “cast a shadow” over the talks.

“Was he fired?” Lavrov said in response. “You are kidding, you are kidding.”

I’m sure it sounded even better in the original Russian.

If everyone took 5% of the outrage they’re expressing over this isolated United Airlines passenger incident and redirected it at actual meaningful social issues, there’d be a lot less actual meaningful social issues to worry about. ?The story has been anchored at the top of memeorandum since the moment it broke yesterday. ?Really!? ?Ladies and gentlemen, our Perpetual Episodic Irrelevant Outrage Machine in all its glory!

P.S. ?Just a few points:

  1. The guy on the plane was being a whiny dick about being asked to disembark. ?He should have complied and then bitched out United for the inconvenience afterward. ?If you’re inclined to disagree with me, just picture yourself as another passenger on the plane. ?You’d have wanted to stab this guy in the neck for holding up the flight even further. ?(On this point, the blame falls on the guy. ?He should have disembarked. ?But, see further below.)
  2. Yes, United is crummy when it comes to overbooking. ?(This is a valid ding against United. ?BUT, it’s a separate issue from the?physical injury the guy suffered.)
  3. Yes, airport security (not the United gestapo) overreacted and injured the guy in the process. ?(This is a ding against the airport security officers involved. ?NOT UNITED.) ?However, see Point 1 above. ?It wouldn’t have happened if the guy wasn’t being a whiny dick.

How far has our collective ability to process logic regressed? ?Sigh.

But, I can’t tell anyone I feel that way anymore because uptight social justice warriors will call me a racist.

Trump is great because not only will he work to make sure those undeserving people stop getting stuff (or at least less of it), he’ll turn around and give me more stuff. ?Not to mention, he’ll make it ok again for me to bitch about undeserving people getting more stuff than me.

As a former communications aide to Sen.

What did we get for it? The nomination ¡ª by way of a largely older, male voting base ¡ª of a brazen and unapologetic misogynist.

I want to ask the men leading the GOP some questions. Why didn¡¯t you defend women from this raging sexist especially after so many Republican women ¡ª for so many years ¡ª eagerly defended the party from charges of sexism? You must make us out for fools.
