Warmonger-in-chief vetoes bill to end participation in Yemeni civil war
Mr. Drumpf vetoed the measure Tuesday. Congress lacks the votes to override him. "This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future," Mr. Drumpf wrote in explaining his veto.What? This doesn't make sense anywhere, neither in the beginning, nor in the end. First of all, the greatest threats to US citizens occurs once they step on S.A.'s or Yemen's soil, because then, they could easily end up in the crosshairs of any side. Secondly, your Constitutional authority, as you call it, should be combined with a certain amount of intelligence that leads to the decision that any contribution to this war, especially on S.A.'s side, is not going to end it, but only fuel an ongoing genocide. Do you even know what you vetoed?
Democratic Rep. Eliot Engel of New York, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, voted to end U.S. military assistance to the war, saying the humanitarian crisis in Yemen triggered "demands moral leadership."
Kaine accused Mr. Drumpf of turning a blind eye to Khashoggi's killing and the jailing of women's rights activists in Saudi Arabia. "I hope my colleagues will show we won't tolerate the Drumpf administration's deference to Saudi Arabia at the expense of American security interests by voting to override this veto," Kaine said.

OH Gov. Mike DeWine (Republican) signs heartbeat bill, ACLU going to sue it
“The signing of this bill today is consistent with that respect for life and the imperative to protect those who cannot protect themselves,” DeWine said moments before signing the bill at the Ohio Statehouse, flanked by GOP legislative leaders and anti-abortion advocates.(Bold text was added by me, while italic is usual for quotes in my post)
Under the bill, doctors would face a fifth-degree felony punishable by up to a year in prison for performing an abortion after detecting a heartbeat. The bill has an exception to save the life of the woman but no exception for rape or incest – in line with current state law.
"A woman should have the ability to make her own personal decision about whether or not to become a parent, and no politician should interfere in that decision," Pepper said in a statement. "This bill is a disgrace, and it will endanger women’s lives in Ohio."

Officials in Virginia say a 19-year-old woman died from a self-inflicted gunshot to the face while her hands were cuffed behind her back
Sarah Wilson was handcuffed during a traffic stop in Chesapeake, Virginia, on July 25, 2018, when she took a gun out of her boyfriend's car, "contorted" her body, and shot her self, Chesapeake Police Spokesman Leo Kosinski told WAVY in August 2018. On Friday, after an official investigation into the incident, Virginia's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed to WAVY that Wilson committed suicide and died from an "intra-oral gunshot wound." At the time of Wilson's death, Kosinski said that one officer involved in the traffic stop was wearing a body camera but it had been knocked offline. source here

I started to work very seriously on the deck in August 2018. I planned out each card to reflect both the ways I have come to interpret each card, and aspects of my personal experience that relate to those interpretations. This deck is, at its core, an autobiography and an exercise in narrative self-portraiture as much as it is anything else, but it's important to me to make something that will speak to others as well.LINK : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/antifatarot/the-witches-insurrection-tarot
Because this deck is meant to reflect not only my experiences, but also my values, it is an anarchist deck, so I have avoided the hierarchical aspects of traditional tarot. The court cards are named the Harlots, Enchantresses, Partisans, and Conspirators, rather than Queens, Kings, Knights, and Pages. The Empress is the Whore, the Emperor is the Mistress.
Visually, I've taken cues both from Pamela Colman Smith's famous deck and elsewhere, such as the homage to Artemesia Gentileschi's Judith Slaying Holofernes in the use of the severed head and vagina dentata, a symbol of the defensive ways in which femmes use our sexuality, in the Justice card.

If lipstick distresses you, you're the problem.
In response, over 5,000 Weibo users rallied around the woman, posting pictures of themselves in full goth make-up with the hashtag ‘#ASelfieForTheGuangzhouMetro.’ In response to this outcry, the Guangzhou subway has since apologized, and a staff member has been suspended.
Being tormented for how they look is something goths the world over are all too familiar with, the most notable and tragic case of this being the murder of Sophie Lancaster in 2007.

Danish MP told to remove her infant child from chamber
“I didn’t ask for permission to bring her since I had previously seen another colleague bring a child into the chamber without any problems,” Abildgaard, whose Conservative party is part of the ruling centre-right coalition, wrote on Facebook.
“A chamber that represents mothers, fathers and babies ought to be open to mothers, fathers and babies,” one person wrote.
In September last year, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern became a symbol for working mothers when she brought her baby to the UN General Assembly in New York.

Protests emerge as feminist group demands rights for praying women at Western Wall
At the instruction of their rabbis, thousands of teenage girls from religious high schools around the country gathered at the Kotel, while hundreds of young ultra-Orthodox men tried to break through police barricades to attack the prayer group.
Held at a distance from the woman by security forces, the Haredi men vented their ire on the large group of men who had come out to support the Women of the Wall, including leaders of Israel's Conservative and Reform movements.
Rabbi Gilad Kariv, executive director of the Reform movement in Israel, called the police statement "scandalous" and attributed it to "utter chutzpah."
“The police failed in their duty,” she said. “They weren’t even attempting to protect us. There were thousands of young girls kicking and pushing us, and I have bruises all over my body.” Sacks reported that two elderly women, both on crutches, had to be evacuated by paramedics from the scene.

On the Georgia heartbeat bill (similar to the Ohio one, I guess)
House Bill 481, called Living Infants Fairness and Equality Act, would prohibit abortions after that point, which would dramatically restrict abortions in Georgia, where women are now allowed to undergo the procedure up to their 20th week of pregnancy.
The Georgia fetal heartbeat bill is one of many that has been introduced in state legislatures across the country, including Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, Arkansas, Minnesota and Tennessee. No state has been able to put a heartbeat bill into lasting practice.
"What I can tell you about these abortion bans across the country, they're not to protect the life of the mother nor life of the embryo," said Georgia state Rep. Park Cannon, a Democrat.
Measures could also be revived this year if eagle-eyed lawmakers find opportunities to add their bill onto legislation that has already passed, which they can do if they are in the same code section of state statutes.
House Resolution 327 would ask voters during the November 2020 election whether they believe the state’s constitution should be amended to allow “licensed destination resort facilities where casino gaming is permitted.” Tax and licensing revenue would be directed to bolster the Georgia Lottery-funded HOPE scholarship.
If House Bill 426 becomes law, a person convicted of a crime and proved to have been motivated by bias would face punishment ranging from three months to a year and a fine of up to $5,000 for a misdemeanor offense to at least two years in prison for a felony offense.

On CPAC and Trump's speech
Instead, he returned to his list of greatest hits: the Russia “witch hunt,” the worst trade deal ever, criminal immigrants, Crooked Hillary, socialist Democrats, and even the crowd size at his inauguration. Compared with his freewheeling rally speeches or his rambling remarks last month in the White House Rose Garden, the president’s CPAC speech was a wild ride.When the inferiority complex hits your unexpectedly hard...
His time at the podium may have even been the longest presidential oration in American history, according to the political writer David Rothkopf, eclipsing William Henry Harrison’s 8,445-word inaugural address in 1841—the outdoor speech in cold weather that famously gave Harrison pneumonia and caused his death within a month.This man died for his job.
2. The Bulwark:
Scrubbing history is at the heart of the current efforts to remake conservativism in the image of Drumpf. There can be only one; and what is happening now has never happened before, because he alone can save us. To #win requires that everyone else loses, or be discredited. This requires the excision of quite a lot of political memory, but CPAC was up for it.
As I recounted in How the Right Lost Its Mind, the perpetual outrage machines on the right thrived on the drumbeat of insisting that the Republican mainstream had betrayed the conservative movement. The sense of weakness and failure was amplified during the Obama years by activists who found that turning up the dial on outrage was an effective formula for getting clicks, raising money, and boosting ratings.

Pro-Life-disciple intended to burn down Planned Parenthood clinic
Wesley Brian Kaster was arrested Saturday after investigators searched his vehicle and found evidence linking him to the fire at the Planned Parenthood-Columbia Health Center. No one was hurt in the attack, which happened in the pre-dawn hours when the building was empty.
The clinic's sprinkler system extinguished the blaze before firefighters arrived. Only the front room with the broken door was damaged, Bryant wrote.
"Let this send a clear message: Blocking access to essential health care is against the law, whether it takes the form of violence and vandalism or threats against our patients, our providers, or our supporters" Hill said. "With sexual and reproductive health care under attack in Missouri, our mission is more important than ever before."

Former TV star-turned-racist bitch expressed her two cents again
The comedian sat down with conservative commentator Candace Owens in an interview that posted on YouTube Sunday to talk politics, Hollywood, race, religion and the #MeToo movement, taking specific aim at the women who accused Louis C.K. of sexual misconduct while in his hotel room.
Barr said her insight into women is different than most because she has two sons — 23 and 40 — and five grandsons. “I know a ho when I see one,” she told Owens. “I’m telling ya, they come for my boys ’cause my boys, you know, I’m their mom and they’re, you know, we have a little bit money. So I got an eagle eye for this thing.”
