Horseshit

The President of the United States called a woman a Horseface. His comment is disgusting and misogynistic, but I am not even shocked or surprised given that he himself a piece of fucking Horseshit.

Vietnamese Kanye

Like Kanye, you have a gift for music. Also like Kanye, you are ill informed as fuck. You support Trump and hate it when people called his supporters uneducated. Sorry to break it to you, but your Facebook posts are filled with fake news. You despite the communist but love Trump. Again, he is a fucking fascist.

You like the way he speaks his mind without any filter. I can see the similarity between you and him. You talk a whole lot of shit too. I am very disappointed and I can no longer listen to your music. Your emotion is fake. How can you sing about romantic love and support a sexual accuser of almost twenty women? I just can’t listen to that shit anymore.

Thank you for unfriended me on Facebook. I am just one of your million fan and follower. It’s all good. Wish you all the best with your music career.

Gender Traitors

Alexis Grenell:

These are the kind of women who think that being falsely accused of rape is almost as bad as being raped. The kind of women who agree with President Trump that “it’s a very scary time for young men in America,” which he said during a news conference on Tuesday.

But the people who scare me the most are the mothers, sisters and wives of those young men, because my stupid uterus still holds out some insane hope of solidarity.

We’re talking about white women. The same 53 percent who put their racial privilege ahead of their second-class gender status in 2016 by voting to uphold a system that values only their whiteness, just as they have for decades.

Spot on.

Sad, Shameful Saturday

When women cried, no one cared. When a white man cried, he got a seat on the Supreme Court. Now those are powerful, privileged tears. What a sad, shameful day for America. We’re one of the most advanced countries in the world, and yet we still leave our women behind.

When I read the final result on his confirmation, I felt so helpless and hopeless. I closed my phone and watched my wife nursing our newborn. The love and the calmness between them helped subsided my anguish. The only thing I could do was to give her a kiss on her forehead.

I wanted her to know that she is respected and appreciated. Seeing her popping ibuprofens and acetaminophens to relieve the pain from the gruesome C-section hurt me so much. The confirmation of a man who is accused of sexual assault to the Supreme Court is a big blow to women. Fortunately, my wife does not let politics affect her. Emotional wise, she is much stronger than I. Yes, I am the bitter bitch in this marriage.

Then again, I can’t do anything other than vote. Vote is the only way to fight back. I can’t wait til November 6.

The Elevator Pitch

Ms. Ana Maria Archila and Ms. Maria Gallagher had given one of the most powerful elevator pitches ever. I have listened to the same clip on various podcasts, and yet it brings tears to my eyes every time. Thank you. Thank you.

Mercatus Uses Private Email Server

David Dayen reports in The Intercepts:

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University, a university-based think tank funded by outside interests including the Koch family foundations, uses a private email server for its communications, according to three sources with knowledge of the situation.

The setup allows Mercatus employees to have “@mercatus.gmu.edu” addresses, without the content of the emails passing through the university email system. Under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, emails from a publicly funded university could be considered public records, and having a private email server would help get around that requirement.

Just astonishing.

The Crisis of the Supreme Court

With life-time appointment for justices, the Supreme Court was meant to be apolitical, and yet it is as partisan as the other two branches. The justices had voted based on partisan lines rather than following the law. As a result, the Supreme Court is a battle ground for the two major parties. The G.O.P doesn’t even care if its nominee is or was a sexual predator. Thanks to the Republican, the Supreme Court has been stained with Clarence Thomas and now we’re about to have yet another sexual-assault justice on the bench. How can we respect the Supreme Court with justices like these two awful men?

From Supreme Court to Jail Cell

A third woman has come out accusing Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. He should withdraw immediately before more women come forward. His desperate claim of being a virgin throughout high school and many years after is fucking bullshit. I am so grateful for these women speaking out. Kavanaugh is a sexual predator and a fucking liar. He can’t be on the bench of the highest court of the land. He should be joining Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein.

Even Comey Got Played

Jane Mayer writes in the New Yorker:

At some point in 2016, the F.B.I. had received unverified Russian intelligence describing purported e-mails from Lynch to a member of the Clinton team, in which she promised that she’d go easy on Clinton. An unnamed source told the Post that the intelligence had been viewed as “junk.” Nonetheless, Comey has reportedly told aides that he let the disinformation shape his decision to sideline Lynch. Fearing, in part, that conservatives would create a furor if the alleged e-mails became public, he began to feel that Lynch “could not credibly participate in announcing a declination.” A subsequent report, by the Justice Department’s inspector general, described Comey’s behavior as “extraordinary and insubordinate,” and found his justifications unpersuasive.

The Russians were so good even the director of the F.B.I. was fooled.
