  1. This much is true. Donald Trump is a liar, Donald Trump is a racist, Donald Trump is a draft dodger, Donald Trump is a tax evader, Donald Trump is orange, Donald Trump has curiously small hands, Donald Trump is an obese mind-less fat fukk, Donald Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump is profiting from the presidency, etc... Donald Trump is a liar. Donald Trump is racist. Trump is also a Republican. He is a stupid, xenophobic, Islamophobic, white nationalist who enjoys tweeting, inciting hate and making crap up. While this may sound like a condemnation of the marmalade-skinned, white supremacist simpleton currently occupying the White House, he actually deserves accolades. Because no matter what you may think of the 45th President of the United States, on rare occasions he displays an unrivaled ability to demonstrate hate, bigotry, stupidity and his party’s predilection for telling a goddamn lie all in one tweet. Even after alleged mass murderers have explicitly and repeatedly stated that Donald Trump’s words have inspired their killing sprees, Twitter has informed us all that they don’t give a Bad word. So, on Wednesday morning, Donald Trump woke up and decided to show the world what he’s made of by using the presidential Twitter account to spread an Islamophobic, racist, dangerous lie that would get anyone else kicked off of the platform. Trump shared a tweet from low-wattage pseudo-comedian Terrance K. Williams, who is so desperate for attention that he has replaced Diamond and Silk as Trump’s favorite negro dingbat. Williams’ now-deleted tweet falsely accused Rep.Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) of dancing on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. It should be noted that Donald Trump’s original plans for commemorating 9/11 included a cookout at Camp David with the Taliban, who rejected the president’s invitation to eat Melania’s tasteless potato salad in the luxurious, taxpayer-funded retreat on the anniversary of the heinous mass murder. Apparently, the Presidential terrorist barbecue was the living manifestation of his mantra that there are good people on “both sides.” The attack on Omar, who is Muslim, is reminiscent of another Trump whopper that claims he saw Muslims dancing in celebration immediately after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center; a claim that won Politifact’s “Pant’s on Fire” ranking, which is the equivalent of an Olympic gold medal in bullcraptery. Or maybe it is racist. The video was taken during the Congressional Black Caucus’ Annual Legislative Conference two days after the anniversary of 9/11 and Omar is a black woman who was dancing to a song by a black woman. Plus, she was on-beat, which probably riled the ire of many people in Trump’s base. Or perhaps it was just a Republican dog-whistle. Trump lost Minnesota to Hillary Clinton by 1.5 percentage points, so he might be trying to motivate his white, suburban base. Omar noted that Trump was putting her life at risk in a tweet admonishing Twitter for co-signing the president’s dangerous fearmongering. Although CBS affiliate WCCO called the claim “false,” noting that the video “appears” to be from Sept. 13, I can personally attest that the accusation is untrue. How would I know?. Here’s a picture of the Congresswoman and me at 7 p.m. on the evening of September 10. Notice the orange headwrap. Here’s a picture I snapped of her on the evening of September 11. Notice the white headwrap. And here’s a picture I took on the evening of September 13, about an hour and fifteen minutes before the video of dancing was recorded. Notice the black headwrap and the necklace that also appears in the video. “This is much bigger than a one-day flare up on Twitter,” said Progressive Change Campaign Committee chairman Adam Green, who first tweeted the video of Omar two-stepping to Lizzo. “Misinformation will fly wildly throughout 2020—which could spark violence or change election results— unless platforms like Twitter make clear there will be accountability for politicians who spread the lies.” Noting that the president’s tweet is still garnering hundreds of hateful comments, Green is calling on Twitter to suspend Trump’s account, using the same precedent the social media platform set when they suspended Mitch McConnell’s campaign account for posting a threatening video. “There is no gray area in this case,” Green said in an email to The Root. “It’s an open and shut case, so Twitter has it’s strongest possible grounding to take action and set a precedent everyone notices.” But maybe Donald Trump is stupid. Stupid people believe anything they see, so the man in charge of the most thorough intelligence and investigative organization on earth probably didn’t bother to verify the date of the video in question. How was he supposed to know? Everyone knows he’s bad with numbers... And words... And facts, logic, truth, reality, intelligence, women, black people, religions, music, reading, writing, spelling, geography, maps, weather, drawing on weather maps, drawing conclusions, and not acting like a fart-filled, vacuous bag of privilege and pussy-grabbing. Aside from that, he’s pretty competent. In fact, here’s a picture of the talented Donald Trump from that same evening:
  2. Correction...the "redacted" Mueller report. The full report has not been released by AG Barr for some reason. 🤔 Transparency = good governance.
  3. Try again missy. I said the electoral college is archaic. Do you know what "archaic" means? I'm sure I know way more about the Constitution than you do. I defended it in uniform for over 20 years. No bone spurs here.
  4. I understand what it means to be an American. Every American's vote should count equally...plain and simple. The electoral college is archaic. Most Americans used to think slavery was "ok" as well. Times change. Try to wrap you meagre little mind around the 21st century. I'm sure it will be a struggle for you.
  5. One vote for every American citizen, and they all should carry the same weight. That seems like the American thing to do in the 21st century, doesn't it?
  6. The whistleblower complaint that has triggered a tense showdown between the U.S. intelligence community and Congress involves President Trump’s communications with a foreign leader, according to two former U.S. officials familiar with the matter. Trump’s interaction with the foreign leader included a “promise” that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community, said the former officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. It was not immediately clear which foreign leader Trump was speaking with or what he pledged to deliver, but his direct involvement in the matter has not been previously disclosed. It raises new questions about the president’s handling of sensitive information and may further strain his relationship with U.S. spy agencies. One former official said the communication was a phone call. The White House declined to comment. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence and a lawyer representing the whistleblower declined to comment. Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson determined that the complaint was credible and troubling enough to be considered a matter of “urgent concern,” a legal threshold that ordinarily requires notification of congressional oversight committees. But acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire has refused to share details about Trump’s alleged transgression with lawmakers, touching off a legal and political dispute that has spilled into public and prompted speculation that the spy chief is improperly protecting the president. The dispute is expected to escalate Thursday when Atkinson is scheduled to appear before the House Intelligence Committee in a classified session closed to the public. The hearing is the latest move by committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) to compel U.S. intelligence officials to disclose the full details of the whistleblower complaint to Congress. Maguire has agreed to testify before the committee next week, according to a statement by Schiff. He declined to comment for this story. The inspector general “determined that this complaint is both credible and urgent,” Schiff said in the statement released Wednesday evening. “The committee places the highest importance on the protection of whistleblowers and their complaints to Congress.” The complaint was filed with Atkinson’s office on Aug. 12, a date on which Trump was at his golf resort in New Jersey. White House records indicate that Trump had had conversations or interactions with at least five foreign leaders in the preceding five weeks. Among them was a call with Russian President Vladimir Putin that the White House initiated on July 31. Trump also received at least two letters from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during the summer, describing them as “beautiful” messages. In June, Trump said publicly that he was opposed to certain CIA spying operations against North Korea. Referring to a Wall Street Journal report that the agency had recruited Kim’s half-brother, Trump said, “I would tell him that would not happen under my auspices.” Trump met with other foreign leaders at the White House in July, including the prime minister of Pakistan, the prime minister of the Netherlands, and the emir of Qatar. Trump’s handling of classified information has been a source of concern to U.S. intelligence officials since the outset of his presidency. In May 2017, Trump revealed classified information about espionage operations in Syria to senior Russian officials in the Oval Office, disclosures that prompted a scramble among White House officials to contain the potential damage. Statements and letters exchanged between the offices of the DNI and the House Intelligence Committee in recent days have pointed at the White House without directly implicating the president. Schiff has said he was told that the complaint concerned “conduct by someone outside of the Intelligence Community.” Jason Klitenic, the DNI general counsel, noted in a letter sent to congressional leaders on Tuesday that the activity at the root of the complaint “involves confidential and potentially privileged communications.” The dispute has put Maguire, thrust into the DNI job in an acting capacity with the resignation of Daniel Coats last month, at the center of a politically perilous conflict with constitutional implications. Schiff has demanded full disclosure of the whistleblower complaint. Maguire has defended his refusal by asserting that the subject of the complaint is beyond his jurisdiction. Defenders of Maguire disputed that he is subverting legal requirements to protect Trump, saying that he is trapped in a legitimate legal predicament and that he has made his displeasure clear to officials at the Justice Department and White House. After fielding the complaint on Aug. 12, Atkinson submitted it to Maguire two weeks later. By law, Maguire is required to transmit such complaints to Congress within seven days. But in this case, he refrained from doing so after turning for legal guidance to officials at the Justice Department. In a sign of Atkinson’s discomfort with this situation, the inspector general informed the House and Senate intelligence committees of the existence of the whistleblower complaint — without revealing its substance — in early September. Schiff responded with almost immediate indignation, firing off a letter demanding a copy of the complaint and warning that he was prepared to subpoena senior U.S. intelligence officials. The DNI has asserted that lawyers determined there was no notification requirement because the whistleblower complaint did not constitute an urgent concern that was “within the responsibility and authority” of Maguire’s office. Legal experts said there are scenarios in which a president’s communications with a foreign leader could rise to the level of an “urgent concern” for the intelligence community, but they also noted that the president has broad authority to decide unilaterally when to classify or declassify information. Revealing how the United States obtained sensitive information could “compromise intelligence means and methods and potentially the lives of sources,” said Joel Brenner, former inspector general for the National Security Agency. It was unclear whether the whistleblower witnessed Trump’s communication with the foreign leader or learned of it through other means. Summaries of such conversations are often distributed among White House staff, although the administration imposed new limits on this practice after Trump’s disclosures to Russian officials were revealed.
  7. Well done pastor Fletcher. 👏 Peaceful civil disobedience is always welcomed in the USA. 😉 HOMER, Alaska — A pastor wearing a colander on his head offered the opening prayer on behalf of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to open a local government meeting in Alaska, the latest blessing from a nontraditional church since a court ruling. Barrett Fletcher, the Pastafarian pastor, noted the duties performed by the members of the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly in his Tuesday message, adding a few of them “seem to feel they can’t do the work without being overseen by a higher authority, ” Kenai radio station KSRM reported Wednesday. “So, I’m called to invoke the power of the true inebriated creator of the universe, the drunken tolerator (sic) of the all lesser and more recent gods, and maintainer of gravity here on earth. May the great Flying Spaghetti Monster rouse himself from his stupor and let his noodly appendages ground each assembly member in their seats,” Fletcher said. The only people who stood for the invocation were those without seats in the standing-room-only assembly hall in Homer, which is about 125 miles south of Anchorage. One man turned his back to face the wall during the invocation, and other men did not remove their hats. The Pastafarian invocation followed one in June from Satanic Temple member Iris Fontana that caused about a dozen people to leave the assembly chamber in Soldotna in protest when she invoked “Hail Satan” in her opening prayer. Fontana was among the plaintiffs in the lawsuit litigated by the American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska against the borough after it approved a 2016 policy saying that people who wanted to give the invocations at the government body’s meetings had to belong to official organizations with an established presence on the Kenai Peninsula. Other plaintiffs who had been denied permission to give the invocations included an atheist and a Jewish woman. The Alaska Supreme Court last October ruled that the borough policy was unconstitutional, and the borough government changed it in November to allow anyone to offer invocations regardless of religion. The Flying Spaghetti Monster church, called FSM for short, was formed in 2005 as a response to the Kansas State Board of Education’s hearings on evolution in schools. Its founder sent a letter about FSM as a way to argue against teaching creationism in biology classes, the Homer News has reported. Church followers believe an invisible and undetectable monster made of spaghetti and meatballs created the universe after drinking heavily, and that his “noodly appendages” hold great power. Many label the movement as satire, but it is recognized as an official religion in some countries, the News reported. Barrett, who started his chapter in Homer, on the lower Kenai Peninsula, concluded his opening prayer as asking the Flying Spaghetti Monster to provide each assembly member “satisfaction in the perception of accomplishment and allow them true relaxation and an ample supply of their favorite beverage at the end of this evening’s work.” He then ended the prayer with: “Ramen.”
  8. Kaman H-2's were incredible...no "RAST" system. Seat of you pants Airmanship.
  9. CDR, I'm a black shoe too. 😉 When I was in HSL-35 I did two cruises on Knox class frigates. The Reasoner (FF-1063) and The Fanning (FF-1076) out of 32nd street. All I'm saying...is when your wearing Khakis...those brown shoes are color coordinated.😱
  10. How many times have less than half of American voters "elected" a bonafide draft dodger to the presidency?
  11. Who here has actually walked a mile in the boon-dockers of a Navy veteran? I have. I'm really a "brown shoe" though. 😉
  12. Opinions are like assholes. I don't care to see yours. Stay in your lane.
