French author Michel #Houllebecq defends Donnie


“The Americans are getting off our backs. The Americans are letting us exist.”

This view is too much related to bare existing, as we can read it here. Of course the US now fell off their high horse and got back on the floor of reality, but to what price? The economy is going down in the US, tensions rise because of a constant rise of autocratic powers, thus the uncertainty about the future and the safety of the people rise and decrease respectively. How can this be any good? We have got great problems to solve, the least we could now need is an apalling clown. Sorry, Mr. Houllebecq, but with this slightly provocative but highly incapable statement, you have shown that you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.

Teehee...


The Twitter banter between the Comedy Central program, hosted by Trevor Noah, and the so-called "Never Drumpf" Republican was sparked after the Twitter account for the late-night TV program posted photos of staff members wearing a blanket featuring images of Flake's messages while watching the retiring senator say goodbye to his colleagues and constituents.

Now I want such a towel too, to enjoy the cold comfort of hypocritical opportunism after just having agreed to vote for a judge who (allegedly) has abused about a fistful of women sexually. :-)

Video from the last meeting of the "Allrussian officers' meeting" (veterans, if i understood correctly)
https://youtu.be/O6Q-Wsx7X-U
Officers resent:
- they discuss the features of cryptocolonial management;
- they resent the renaming of the russian militia (in their understanding “serves the people”) into the police (in their understanding “serves the authorities”), they claim that they can quickly change this situation;
- call to remember the oath, which was given to their soviet motherland.
This video is interesting, in my opinion, not by the content, but by the rank of the assembled officers. If to consider nepotism in such communities, this is more than just the opinion of disgruntled pensioners.

The pace of enrollment in Affordable Care Act plans is slower than in past years. That could mean fewer people will have health coverage — or that more people are getting insurance via their work.

14 year old starts shootout at school, killed himself


After officers confronted the teen outside the school, the gunman "reportedly shot out the glass of a locked entry door" and ran inside the building, police said.
The teen, who was not a student at the school but lived in the area, exchanged gunfire with the officers as they followed him, police said.
The 14-year-old died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. It's not clear if the suspect was wounded by officers, police added.

No comment on this.

Guatemaltecan migrant girl died in custody, due to starvation and shock


The AP news agency quotes border officials as saying she had not had food or water for several days.

So, we can tell that this girl was held in custody because her family, or at least her mother tried to receive asylum in the US. Then, the child was not fed for several days? Are you fucking kidding me? Seriously? The US have become a terrorist state, let's just say it as it is. They prevent themselves from their social responsibility, for situations they could have fought against. But they didn't. The US were founded by immigrants, and now, they want to hold the same out of sight and out of mind. Impeach this fucking rogue administration, for God's sake!

On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that she had suffered seizures after being detained last weekend along with her father and was taken by helicopter to a children's hospital in El Paso.

Cohen speaks out in interviews


Fox anchor Harris Faulkner's interview with Drumpf was underwhelming. Except for fact-checkers -- for them, it was overwhelming. "That was not an interview. It was an infomercial," CNN's S.E. Cupp said afterward.
Drumpf played dumb when Faulkner asked about the pre-election payoffs, saying things like "I don't think they even paid any money to that tabloid." By the end of the day, sources had confirmed to NBC and CNN what the WSJ reported last month: That Drumpf was in the room when Michael Cohen and American Media Inc. boss David Pecker "discussed a plan to shield Drumpf from potentially damaging stories. Prosecutors say this amounted to illegal donations to Drumpf's campaign," CNN's story explained...

Maria Butina pleaded guilty


Butina, who is a gun rights activist, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to act as a foreign agent as part of a cooperation agreement with prosecutors. She admitted to acting under the direction of a Russian official, Alexander Torshin, another prominent gun rights supporter and a fixture in Russian politics.
[...]
Butina acknowledged in court that she will likely be deported after she’s sentenced, which won’t happen until after she’s done cooperating with prosecutors. A status hearing has been scheduled for February 12.

RIP, Ms. Eaton


In 2016, a federal court ruled that the restrictions were designed to discourage black voters who usually supported democrats. The Supreme Court heard the case and a 4-4 ruling meant it would not reinstate the restrictions.

We all may honour Ruth Bader-Ginsburg as one of the strongest defenders of a liberal and free society, but we may not forget who was the woman to broaden black people's right to vote; this was Ms. Rosanell Eaton, the lead plaintiff of the 2013 lawsuit in North Carolina. Unfortunately, we experienced in this year's midterms that the GOP restricted voting rights for Natives...

Paddy Reilly - Deportees (Written by Woody Guthrie)


Although I prefer the version sung by the Wolfe Tones and the one sung by Pete Seeger, I also wanted to highlight how beautiful and sorrowful Paddy Reilly has sung this song about Mexican/Latin-American labourers who were deported after executing their seasonal work, when their plane crashed above Los Gatos Canyon. It's the same fate all the migrants face when the ICE took over them, poisoned them with tear gas or downright deported them, to go back to Honduras, or wherever they came from. This is ekpathic, it's outright misanthropic, and a purely egoist policy that was launched by the Trump administration. A decision filled up with nothing but hate, isolationism, cowardry, and lies. This is nothing about America First, it's only about the White Man's imaginary paramount, and about the yellow action of not caring because Donnie doesn't have the balls to accomplish an issue that was made to be taken by a president. That's why he is nothing but a clown. Only clowns tweet like him, but not an honourable man who was voted by... mehr anzeigen
