Watch Live: Something Wicked This Way Comes

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 08:53:28 PST

Here's a live feed, minus the annoying cable news chatter, in case you want to watch the dawn of the Trump Horror.

I feel obligated to watch, even though every cell in my body is fighting against it. I had a hard time sleeping last night; woke up with a feeling of dread.

This election has tested my faith in the essential decency of America and its people like nothing else in my lifetime. I sincerely hope I'm wrong, but I fear we're about to experience a true authoritarian nightmare unlike anything we've seen in this country before, led by rapacious men who seek only to enrich themselves and their cronies.

I sincerely hope I'm wrong. I've never wished so hard in my life that I was wrong about something so important. But I don't think it's going to turn out that way.


Report: Trump Wanted Soviet-Style Military Parade for Inauguration

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 21:31:43 PST

Remember when the big criticism of Hillary Clinton from the left was "she's a war-monger!"?

Well, partly thanks to those people, we're about to have a president who'll show us the real meaning of "war-monger."

During the preparation for Friday’s transfer-of-power, a member of Trump’s transition team floated the idea of including tanks and missile launchers in the inaugural parade, a source involved in inaugural planning told The Huffington Post. “They were legit thinking Red Square/North Korea-style parade,” the source said, referring to massive military parades in Moscow and Pyongyang, typically seen as an aggressive display of muscle-flexing.

The military, which traditionally works closely with the presidential inaugural committee, shot down the request, the source said. Their reason was twofold. Some were concerned about the optics of having tanks and missile launchers rolling down Pennsylvania Avenue. But they also worried that the tanks, which often weigh over 100,000 pounds, would destroy the roads.

“I could absolutely see structural support being a reason [not to use tanks],” a Department of Defense official said. “D.C. is built on a swamp to begin with.”

Video: President Obama Holds His Final Press Conference

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 15:35:27 PST

Gotta tell you, folks. This is hard to watch, knowing that the man following President Obama into the White House is Obama's polar opposite in so many ways: a thin-skinned, insecure yet egomaniacal, vindictive, vengeful, utterly dishonest 70-year old racist baby-man with a Cabinet full of extremists and white supremacists.

The President says he's going to attend the illegitimate Trump Horror's inauguration, and I suppose I understand why; if nothing else, out of respect for the institution. But the Trump human being deserves no respect at all. And I'll never consider him my president.

I keep expecting to get into the "acceptance" phase of the grief cycle over the election of this monster, but I seem to be stuck at "rage."


The FBI and 5 Other Agencies Are Investigating Russia’s Efforts to Help Donald Trump Gain Power

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 11:45:48 PST

McClatchy reports today that there's an active investigation under way into Russian attempts to skew the presidential election toward Donald Trump.

The FBI and five other law enforcement and intelligence agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation into Russian attempts to influence the November election, including whether money from the Kremlin covertly aided President-elect Donald Trump, two people familiar with the matter said.

The agencies involved in the inquiry are the FBI, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and representatives of the director of national intelligence, the sources said.

Investigators are examining how money may have moved from the Kremlin to covertly help Trump win, the two sources said. One of the allegations involves whether a system for routinely paying thousands of Russian-American pensioners may have been used to pay some email hackers in the United States or to supply money to intermediaries who would then pay the hackers, the two sources said.

Note that the allegation of funneling money through Russian-American pensioners was part of the Trump "golden showers" dossier -- so the FBI and other agencies obviously put enough credence in that dossier to investigate it.

Tech Note: The "Email an Article" Makeover, Now Mobile-Friendly

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 14:10:41 PST

Image via Shutterstock In the past few days I've been working on a part of the LGF site that's been woefully neglected for too long: our "Email an Article" feature, which you get to by clicking the little envelope icon below each article -- the one that looks like this: Would you believe this code hasn't been seriously worked on for 10 years? In a way it's kind of cool that it was still functional despite the lack of attention, but with the advent of mobile devices it really started to show its age. The idea of the feature is to send a nicely formatted HTML email that contains most of the article, with images and links and all that good stuff. (It also includes an alternate non-HTML version for people who don't want HTML in their emails.) But on mobile devices, this HTML code was ... well ... less than optimal. Not perfect. Oh, let's face it, it sucked. On some mobile devices it looked OK, but was shrunken down to an unreadable tiny size because it wasn't scaled to the mobile screen. On other mobile devices it looked flat out awful, because they didn't support CSS properly, or a myriad of other reasons. The thing about mobile HTML email is that it's a real nightmare to code, with so many devices out there, each with its own quirks and bugs. That's one reason why I hadn't done much with the code for a long time, because it was a daunting task. But I'm pleased to announce that I recently discovered an open source framework called MJML that makes all of these compatibility headaches disappear like magic. Instead of writing the HTML directly, you code it with MJML's custom tags first, then compile it to the special HTML that works in emails. Here's a sample of what the MJML code looks like: Hello MJML Hello World! The MJML framework gives us a vastly improved "Email an Article" feature that looks great on almost any mobile device or desktop computer. The HTML version now scales beautifully to fit the screen size of whatever device you're using to view it, and it works even with the most troublesome email clients (I'm looking at you, Microsoft Outlook). And as a bonus, our emails now include links to share the articles to Facebook and Twitter. I always like to end these Tech Notes with a tip for programmers, so here's something I figured out while working with MJML that wasn't obvious and wasn't in their documentation. Since I use PHP to generate the email for this feature, I build the MJML code as a string. The official docs for MJML only describe how to compile the code from a file on disk and write the resulting code back to the disk, but this seemed like way too much overhead. So I worked out a way to use PHP to pass a string into the MJML compiler and get back a string of compiled HTML code. And here it is: This uses PHP's shell_exec command to pipe the MJML string to the MJML command line compiler, and return the compiled code in the variable $html. The trim command is in there just in case there's some white space at the beginning or end of the compiled code.[...]

A Renewed Commitment to Nonviolence

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 12:00:49 PST

“Nonviolence is a powerful and just weapon, which cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals.”-Martin Luther King, Jr. As a student at UCLA, I had the extreme fortune to study Nonviolence and Social Movements under the iconic Reverend James Lawson. In this class we learned not only about the civil disobedience actions he led during the lunch counter sit-ins and freedom rides that are such an integral part of the Civil Rights struggle in America, we also learned about Gandhi, the Polish Solidarity movement, and the DREAMERs. Of all the courses I took in college, this one made the most lasting impression on me. I walked away from that course with a strong conviction that nonviolence is the only way to go about effecting social change. As we prepare to inaugurate Donald Trump, many of us are looking towards the future and anticipating the need to come together for rallies, protest and civil disobedience. We have already seen a taste of this during and after the election, when thousands of people took to the streets all over the country to protest the election of a person who is so reviled. What we saw in these first protests of the Trump era was the eruption of violence, and even some isolated incidences of rioting. While the vast majority of the people protesting were peaceful, the evening news and social media focused on the violence. If our goal is to win people over to our point of view, violence and destruction of property is antithetical to our movement. It is imperative that we train a new generation of activists on the importance of nonviolent civil disobedience and on how to respond to violence that they face during their civic actions. If what I am seeing with online organizing comes to fruition over the next few years, our “slacktivism” is about to turn into sustained activism. And I am afraid we are wholly unprepared for this moment in time. We must understand that the people who were part of effective social change in the past were trained and disciplined in the art of nonviolence. Reverend Lawson and his counterparts spent months preparing for their sit-ins. They planned everything that they could plan, down to how they should dress, and they anticipated and prepared for the responses they knew they would get. They took turns playing the role of agitator and agitated, they made people commit to responding to provocations with peace. As I prepare to attend my local Women’s March on January 21st, I have been trying to find videos of nonviolent civil disobedience training. I have been looking for short videos which I can spread to fellow marchers which teach not only the principles of nonviolent resistance, but actually show situations that marchers may face, and illustrate the proper way to respond. I haven’t had any luck finding such videos. If you have a talent for making informative and entertaining videos, you could do us all a real service by producing some training videos for #TheResistance. If you plan to get involved in this movement, educate yourself on peaceful social movements of the past. Find people who can train you, and your friends, and your activist groups. If we want this movement to be successful, if we want to win hearts and minds of our fellow Americans, we need to reinvest in the philosophy of Dr. King and nonviolence. “When they go low, we go high.” -- Michelle Obama[...]

Donald J. Trump, Silencer of Dissent

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 10:59:24 PST

In the third Presidential debate, Donald Trump said that the Second Amendment is “under such trauma.” But what about the First Amendment? While much could be said about freedom of religion, here the focus is on freedom of speech and tolerance of dissenting voices – which is an apropos topic for MLK Day. At his January 11, 2017 press conference, Mr. Trump said, "I have long been a supporter of a free and independent press and I always will be." So there is nothing more to say, right? Of course, there is actually a lot more to say. There is more to freedom of speech than freedom of the press. And there is much more to say, regarding the press. Concerns had already been raised when Mr. Trump restricted media access during his campaign and earlier in his transition. Meanwhile, during the very same press conference (of January 11), he attacked BuzzFeed and CNN for spreading a report with allegations (which were "unverified," as BuzzFeed admitted) that were damaging to Mr. Trump, who vehemently denied them. He called BuzzFeed "a failing pile of garbage." He repeatedly told CNN reporter Jim Acosta to be "quiet" (when the reporter attempted to ask a question), while calling CNN "fake news." CNN saw it necessary to issue a "response to Trump's accusations of false reporting" -- as CNN pointed to its restraint in not publishing the report's uncorroborated details, while defending its reporting as "the core of what the First Amendment protects." There is also a much larger history, both recent and earlier, by which to judge Mr. Trump's views on freedom of expression and tolerance of dissent. By now, most of the facts are familiar. It's just a matter of putting them all together. • After becoming the President-Elect, Mr. Trump publicly castigated the cast of the Broadway show Hamilton -- and actually demanded that the cast "Apologize!" -- for a challenging but respectful post-show message to audience member VP-Elect Mike Pence. The cast's message had not offended Mr. Pence; in fact, when confronted with audience members' reactions that included boos, Mr. Pence recognized, "that’s what freedom sounds like.” Yet Mr. Trump did not share those sentiments. • Mr. Trump lambasted Saturday Night Live, time and again – after their parodies of…Mr. Trump. His attacks have not been limited to criticisms of entertainers. • Union leader Chuck Jones criticized Mr. Trump’s exaggeration of facts of the Carrier deal. So Mr. Trump attacked him on Twitter: Chuck Jones, who is President of United Steelworkers 1999, has done a terrible job representing workers. No wonder companies flee country! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 8, 2016 ReplyReply w/ Quote Trump’s tweet led to death threats against Mr. Jones. These attacks are part of a larger message of hostility towards dissenters, which started during his campaign. • When confronted with a protester at a rally, Trump uttered some memorable words: “I love the old days. You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They'd be carried out on a stretcher, folks.... I’d like to punch him in the face, I'll tell ya." He threatens not just fists, but also lawsuits. • He threatened to sue accusers, who alleged that he had done what he had bragged about doing (on the Access Hollywood tape). • His lawyer accused the New York Times of libel and defamation for reporting on accusations of Mr. Trump's unwanted advances on women. The newspaper's response letter pointed out that Mr. Trump's threats apparently reflected his (mistaken) view that "the law of this country forces ... those who would dare to criticize hi[...]

Now Trump Wants to Evict the Press From the White House

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 12:52:56 PST

The transformation of the United States from a representative democracy to an authoritarian banana republic ruled by an unstable egomaniac is accelerating. In classic despot style, Donald Trump has labeled the independent press as "the enemy," and is now preparing to evict journalists from the White House.

According to three senior officials on the transition team, a plan to evict the press corps from the White House is under serious consideration by the incoming Trump Administration. If the plan goes through, one of the officials said, the media will be removed from the cozy confines of the White House press room, where it has worked for several decades. Members of the press will be relocated to the White House Conference Center—near Lafayette Square—or to a space in the Old Executive Office Building, next door to the White House.

"There has been no decision," Sean Spicer, Trump's press secretary, said about the plan today. But Spicer acknowledged that "there has been some discussion about how to do it."

Of course, Trump's incoming White House press secretary is trying to spin this as a way to help the media.

Spicer cast the possible relocation of the press corps as a matter, in part, of logistics. "There's been so much interest in covering a President Donald Trump," he said. "A question is: Is a room that has forty-nine seats adequate? When we had that press conference the other day, we had thousands of requests, and we capped it at four hundred. Is there an opportunity to potentially allow more members of the media to be part of this? That's something we're discussing."

Maybe there would have been more room for the media at that last press conference if they hadn't packed it with Trump staffers and boosters who applauded every talking point from the Dear Leader.

But another unnamed member of this gang of villains can't help boasting about the true motive.

Another senior official, however, suggested a more pointed motivation for the move. According to the official, the potential relocation reflected a view within the transition team that coverage of Trump has been so hostile as to indicate that the press has abandoned its role as neutral observer.

"They are the opposition party," a senior official says. "I want 'em out of the building. We are taking back the press room."

After Classified Briefing With Comey, Democrats Are "Outraged"

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 11:38:39 PST

I think most people who aren't hard core Trump cultists realize at this point that FBI director James Comey played a large part in tilting the 2016 election, by releasing that statement about "new Hillary Clinton emails" in the last days of the campaign -- newly discovered emails that were then shown to contain absolutely nothing incriminating or even relevant.

But today House representatives had a classified briefing with Comey -- and the Democrats emerged from the briefing expressing outrage at what they'd heard from Comey.

A number of House Democrats left Friday's confidential briefing on Russian hacking fuming over the actions of FBI Director James Comey and convinced he's unfit to lead the agency.

"I was nonjudgmental until the last 15 minutes. I no longer have that confidence in him," Rep. Tim Walz (D-Minn.), ranking member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, said as he left the meeting in the Capitol.

"Some of the things that were revealed in this classified briefing — my confidence has been shook."

Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), senior Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, delivered a similar condemnation.

"I'm extremely concerned — extremely," he said.

"I'll just — I'm very angry," echoed Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.).

Clearly, James Comey revealed something in this closed session that was very incriminating -- for him. We can only hope that this information comes out sooner rather than later, although it's already too late to prevent the incoming Trump Horror.

White Supremacist Jared Taylor Announces Ann Coulter Is Now Writing for His Hate Site

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 20:40:31 PST

Far right pundit/loon Ann Coulter has often played the role of apologist for white supremacism, whether through race-baiting or with outright excuse-making for white supremacist websites.

But now, in the era of the Trump Horror, when white supremacism is an integral part of the incoming presidential administration, Ann Coulter is no longer making even a token effort to hide it. Today Jared Taylor, founder of American Renaissance, one of the most popular long-running "white nationalist" websites (and that's in scare quotes because "white nationalist" is really just white supremacism with a slightly less offensive name) announced that Ann Coulter's columns will now be appearing next to their articles on eugenics, black crime, and the inherent superiority of the master race.

In the era of the Trump Horror, all the masks are dropping.

UK Intelligence Officials Vouch for Credibility of Trump "Golden Showers" Dossier

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 12:01:02 PST

Donald Trump compared it to Nazi propaganda, and called it "fake news," but the Guardian reports today that UK intelligence officials are coming forward to vouch for the credibility of Christopher Steele, author of the now-infamous Trump "Golden Showers" dossier.

At his press briefing on Wednesday, the president-elect dared the world’s media to scrutinise the 35 pages of claims, before throwing down a challenge – where’s the proof? Nobody had any. Case closed.

But in the rush to trample all over the dossier and its contents, one key question remained. Why had America’s intelligence agencies felt it necessary to provide a compendium of the claims to Barack Obama and Trump himself?

And the answer to that lies in the credibility of its apparent author, the ex-MI6 officer Christopher Steele the quality of the sources he has and the quality of the people prepared to vouch for him.

On Thursday night, as the former spy was in hiding, having fled his home in the south-east of England, former colleagues rallied to defend him. One described him as “very credible” – a sober, cautious and meticulous professional with a formidable record.

The former Foreign Office official who has known Steele for 25 years and considers him a friend said: “The idea his work is fake or a cowboy operation is false, completely untrue. Chris is an experienced and highly regarded professional. He’s not the sort of person who will simply pass on gossip.”

Stunning: Trump Goes to War Against US Intelligence Agencies, Compares Them to Nazis

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 09:44:25 PST

What a circus this press conference was. His first one in six months, and it was a complete shambles. Among other loony bits, Trump's lawyer took over the podium for almost 20 minutes and laid out a plan to create a "blind trust" that was absolutely nothing like a real blind trust. People will be talking about lots of moments, but for me this was the most striking, and the most horrifying: Now attacking the intelligence agencies again. “That’s something that Nazi Germany would have done.” — Charles Johnson (@Green_Footballs) January 11, 2017 ReplyReply w/ QuoteImage Trump explicitly accused the intelligence agencies of leaking that #GoldenShowers dossier, and compared them to Nazis.

Here's the Dossier Alleging Russia Has Seriously Compromising Dirt on Our President-Elect

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 16:06:07 PST

Buzzfeed has published the dossier compiled by a former British intellligence agent, alleging that Russia has some really nasty compromising information on Donald Trump, and that they've been "cultivating, supporting and assisting him for at least 5 years."

It says Trump stayed in the presidential suite of the Moscow Ritz Carlton, where he knew President Obama had stayed with Michelle Obama on an official visit, and hired prostitutes to defile the bed by “performing a ‘golden showers’ urination show in front of him.” Oh, man.

This brings a whole new meaning to the term "Wikileaks."

But aside from the salacious stuff, this document also alleges a years-long collaboration between Trump and Russia that's deeply troubling.

Of course, this information is unverified. But CNN reports that US intelligence agencies gave it enough credence that they included it in the briefing given to Trump last week.

Don't be surprised if Trump suddenly cancels the press conference he had scheduled for tomorrow.

But at least it will be amusing to watch the news channels delicately try to describe "golden showers" as euphemistically as possible.
