Donald Trump Thinks He's Above the Law - Now He Wants to "Break Up" the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 17:23:18 PDT

You'll have to excuse my language here, folks, but this one is absolutely fucking outrageous. After ranting earlier that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals had blocked his "sanctuary cities" executive order (and he was wrong -- it was the US District Court in San Francisco), our Narcissist in Chief gave an interview to right wing propaganda outlet Washington Examiner and threatened to "break up" the Ninth Circuit Court.

President Trump said Wednesday that he has "absolutely" considered proposals that would split up the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, where judges have blocked two of his executive actions.

"Absolutely, I have," Trump said of considering 9th Circuit breakup proposals during a far-ranging interview with the Washington Examiner at the White House. "There are many people that want to break up the 9th Circuit. It's outrageous."

Trump is now talking openly about destroying the parts of the judicial system that won't rubber-stamp his bigoted executive orders. He's openly scorning the rule of law. This way lies dictatorship, folks.

Trump Rage-Tweets About "Ninth Circuit," but His Executive Order Wasn't Blocked by the Ninth Circuit

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 11:24:26 PDT

Our purported president is embarrassing the nation again with a series of rage-tweets attacking the judicial system for thwarting his plans to install bigoted executive decrees. The Narcissist in Chief ranted this morning about how the Ninth Circuit Court blocked his unconstitutional effort to withhold federal funds from "sanctuary cities."

There's just one little humiliating problem with Pumpkin Pinochet's diatribe: his "sanctuary cities" order wasn't blocked by the Ninth Circuit Court, but by Judge William Orrick of the United States District Court in San Francisco: Judge Blocks Trump Effort to Withhold Money From Sanctuary Cities.

As for his tiny-fisted threat to "see you in Supreme Court!" ... well, this isn't the first time he's made this empty promise.

Trump's Former Adviser Michael Flynn Might Have Broken Law, but the White House Refuses to Provide Documents

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 11:59:43 PDT

Tick tock. Another shoe has dropped in the investigation of the Trump gang's contacts with the Russian government: House oversight: Michael Flynn might have broken law.

President Donald Trump's former national security adviser did not properly disclose payments from Russia and may have broken the law, House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz and ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings said Tuesday after reviewing Michael Flynn's application for a security clearance.

"As a former military officer, you simply cannot take money from Russia, Turkey or anybody else. And it appears as if he did take that money. It was inappropriate. And there are repercussions for the violation of law," Chaffetz said.

Chaffetz and Cummings announced their findings to reporters on the Hill following a classified gathering of the committee in which they reviewed documents that Cummings described as "extremely troubling."

[...]

The news comes after the White House declined to provide documents related to Flynn that the panel investigating him had requested, according to a letter obtained by CNN.White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short outlined in a letter to the House oversight committee how it would not complete the request from the panel, referring some requests to the Department of Defense, saying the office doesn't have custody of some of the other documents or simply stating "we are unable to accommodate" others.

The State Department Is Now Hyping Trump's Private Club Mar-a-Lago as the "Winter White House"

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 15:09:56 PDT

In today's episode of "Donald Trump's America - the Banana Republic Edition," the UK State Department website is now promoting Trump's Mar-a-Lago castle, calling it: Mar-a-Lago: The winter White House.

Mar-a-Lago, President Trump’s Florida estate, has become well known as the president frequently travels there to work or host foreign leaders.

I don't even know what to say any more. This just keeps more and more nightmarish.

Alex Jones Is Helping Stephen Colbert Re-Find His Comedy Groove, and It's a Beautiful Thing

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 18:16:12 PDT

If you're like me, you've been a little disappointed with the new incarnation of Stephen Colbert on The Late Show. Don't get me wrong, he's always funny, but the fire, well, it just hasn't been at the same level as it used to be.

But now we can thank Alex Jones for one thing -- he's helping Stephen get his groove back. And it's about time Alex Jones had a comedy virtuoso like Stephen Colbert give him the severe mocking he so richly deserves.

WATCH LIVE: March for Science, Earth Day 2017

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 10:53:50 PDT

This Earth Day, April 22, Earth Day Network and the March for Science are co-organizing a rally and teach-in on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The day’s program will include speeches and trainings with scientists and civic organizers, musical performances, and a march through the streets of Washington, D.C. The crowd will gather at 8:00am, and the teach-in will begin at 09:00am.

Our so-called president Donald Trump has been devastating government science resources, but today his people had the nerve to release this dishonest statement:

We should remember that vigorous science depends not on ideology, but on a spirit of honest inquiry and robust debate.

The sheer hypocrisy of that sentence boggles the mind, as Trump is reportedly getting ready to withdraw the US from the Paris climate change accords for purely ideological reasons.

John Mayer, Featuring the Dancing Pandas: "Still Feel Like Your Man"

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 18:14:37 PDT

John Mayer's new ellpee "The Search for Everything" is on heavy rotation at LGF headquarters, because it's really, really good. And here's the first music video from the LP, a very funky lament about a lost love featuring some awesome dancing pandas.

One of the reasons I love this album so much: the beautiful multi-tracked super-clean, super-subtle guitar break after he sings, "I still keep your shampoo in the shower." That, my friends, is the real shit.

Trump's Lawyers Argue That Protesters Have "No Right" to Protest Against Him

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 14:06:47 PDT

Well, this one takes the cake. And I'm not talking about the most beautiful chocolate cake you've ever seen.

Donald Trump is being sued for inciting violence at his 2016 Louisville rally at which several African American protesters were assaulted by his fans after he screamed "Get 'em out of here!" from the stage. And yesterday his lawyers made one of the most ridiculous arguments I think I've ever heard of. They're claiming that even if Trump did incite violence, the protesters had no right to demonstrate at his rally because they were interfering with his First Amendment rights.

Trump’s lawyers also argue that he had every right to call for the removal the protesters since they “obviously interfered with the Trump campaign’s First Amendment right” by “vigorously expressing their disdain for Mr. Trump,” including by chanting and holding up signs depicting Trump’s face on the body of a pig, among other anti-Trump messages.

“Of course, protesters have their own First Amendment right to express dissenting views, but they have no right to do so as part of the campaign rally of the political candidates they oppose,” Trump’s lawyers wrote.

I had to read this article a couple of times to make sure this is really what they're arguing. It is.

Trump Barges Into the French Election With a Fear-Mongering Tweet Hyping Fascist Marine Le Pen

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 11:16:27 PDT

It's long been clear -- obvious, in fact -- that one of the main goals of terrorism is to provoke Western governments into overreacting and lashing out against Muslims, thus further driving radicalization and helping terrorist groups recruit more members. One of the ways this goal is achieved is by instilling fear in the populace, leading them to elect right wing demagogues who will perpetuate this cycle of radicalization and disintegration.

And if we accept that this is the goal of terrorism, our so-called president Donald Trump is playing right into their hands again today after an attack that killed one policeman in Paris, with a fear-mongering tweet that seems to endorse the election of French fascist Marine Le Pen.

Trump has ignored every act of violence that isn't perpetrated by Muslims, of course. For example, when one of his fans slaughtered six Muslims in a Quebec City mosque in January, Trump said absolutely nothing.

One of the right wing's uglier talking points about President Obama was that he was secretly in league with radical Islam. But our current orange-faced demagogue is openly playing right along with the terrorists and helping them achieve their goals with these reckless and dangerous public statements.

Who's really in league with the terrorists?

Trump Horror, Day 90: Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin in the Oval Office

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 10:51:12 PDT

Yes, seriously. The guy who wrote songs like "Jailbait," crapped in his pants to dodge the draft, appeared numerous times on the white supremacist radio show Political Cesspool, and called for President Obama and Hillary Clinton to be executed.

Here he is with his wife Shemane, posing with his hat on in the Oval Office with our disgusting so-called president. And yes, that's Sarah Palin and Kid Rock, too.

The feeling of being stuck in a prolonged nightmare is getting worse every day.

UPDATE at 4/20/17 11:00:00 am by Charles Johnson

And here's this gang of creepy far right goons smirking in front of the portrait of Hillary Clinton. Absolutely revolting.

It's Official: Fox News Is Giving Bill O'Reilly the Boot

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 12:01:52 PDT

Rumors have been flying for the past few days that Fox News was preparing to axe ratings king Bill O'Reilly, after a slew of advertisers abandoned his show when reports surfaced that O'Reilly had settled multiple sexual harassment complaints.

Well, now it isn't just rumors -- it's official.

21st Century Fox, parent company of Fox News, released a statement Wednesday afternoon that read "After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O'Reilly have agreed that Bill O'Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel."

It's doubtful that Fox News has suffered a sudden attack of ethics, though; O'Reilly's workplace sexual harassment would probably have been ignored if advertisers were sticking with the show. That "thorough and careful review of the allegations" came after spending $13 million to settle with numerous women over the course of several years.

But it's sad and ironic that O’Reilly is losing his job because of sexual harassment -- when Donald Trump got his job despite openly admitted sexual assault. This country apparently holds Fox News personalities to a higher standard than the president of the United States.

UPDATE at 4/19/17 12:03:13 pm by Charles Johnson

And now we learn that Fox is wasting no time replacing this bigoted misogynist talk show host with an even more bigoted and misogynist talk show host.

UPDATE at 4/19/17 12:18:06 pm by Charles Johnson

Here's how the propaganda hacks at Breitbart "News" are spinning O'Reilly's firing...

White Supremacists Sending Mass Emails to Recruit for the "Alt-Right"

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 11:40:42 PDT

In the Trump era, it's no secret by now that white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups have been greatly emboldened. The owner of the vile hate site Daily Stormer notoriously wrote, “Our Glorious Leader has ascended to God Emperor. Make no mistake about it: we did this. If it were not for us, it wouldn’t have been possible.”

The number of reported hate crimes and antisemitic vandalism incidents has soared since the election, and other white supremacists like Richard Spencer have also been crawling out from under their rocks lately, sensing a new atmosphere of potential power for them and their hate-mongering fellow travelers.

Here's another sign of this disturbing and dangerous trend enabled by Donald Trump and his far right agenda.

In the past week I've received the same mass emails from different addresses (probably fake addresses), promoting the "alt-right" and obviously seeking to normalize their ideology and recruit people to their "cause." Evidently whoever's behind this email campaign is using a mailing list purchased from spammers or from some kind of right wing political group.

After receiving another one this morning, I searched my email client and found several more copies of this email in my spam folder; here's what it looks like in PDF form.

NOTE: I don't recommend clicking the website links in this document, because they'll take you to some of the nastiest hate sites on the internet.

SPLC Sues Trump-Supporting Neo-Nazi Leader Who Targeted Jewish Woman in Anti-Semitic Harassment

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 14:47:22 PDT

The Southern Poverty Law Center has filed a federal lawsuit against the owner of the vile "Daily Stormer" neo-Nazi website, for targeting a Jewish woman in a disturbing anti-Semitic harassment campaign.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, along with its Montana co-counsel, filed suit in federal court today against the founder of a major neo-Nazi website who orchestrated a harassment campaign that has relentlessly terrorized a Jewish woman and her family with anti-Semitic threats and messages.

The lawsuit describes how Andrew Anglin used his web forum, the Daily Stormer – the leading extremist website in the country – to publish 30 articles urging his followers to launch a “troll storm” against Tanya Gersh, a real estate agent in Whitefish, Montana. Gersh, her husband and 12-year-old son have received more than 700 harassing messages since December.

The intimidation began after Anglin accused Gersh of attempting to extort money from the mother of Richard Spencer. The younger Spencer heads the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist organization.

Anglin and Spencer are both prominent leaders of the “alt-right” movement that rallied white nationalists behind President Donald Trump’s campaign.

“Andrew Anglin knew he had an online army primed to attack with the click of a mouse,” said SPLC President Richard Cohen. “We intend to hold him accountable for the suffering he has caused Ms. Gersh and to send a strong message to those who use their online platforms as weapons of intimidation.”

Let's hope they succeed in driving this hate-monger out of business.
