lol, one line out of that I'd forgotten about was when the chick goes "I think there's a revolution happening pretty soon?" when asked why Iran. There is if you guys have any say in it, I guess.

Per Hanlon's Razor, I think the population at large did not know that (look how factually uninformed everyone is in the present day) but I will allow that part of the reason they didn't know (again, as in the present day) is that they sought out information which confirmed what they wanted to believe. In elite circles, yeah, everyone knew but didn't care.

I don't even remember what I thought about that at the time. I was certainly opposed to the war and went to the protest (we got about 7% of the population out in Adelaide, biggest protest of my lifetime) but I don't think I had any strong opinion that the WMD intel was bull****. Pretty sure I was agnostic on it, thought the intel was pretty weaksauce and that it didn't justify the war. I was 22-23 at the time the debate was happening, so probably insufficiently cynical.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Am I ponied and didn't notice or has nobody posted the LA Times interview with John Kelly?

Most interesting thing in it imo is that Kelly says that the family separation thing was a decision by noted scumbag and gnome Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions which took the White House by surprise:

Quote:
In May, Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions announced a zero-tolerance policy for immigration violations. U.S. officials already had begun to put the policy into practice, resulting in hundreds of migrant children being separated from their parents.

Kelly said Sessions’ announcement caught the White House by surprise.

“What happened was Jeff Sessions, he was the one that instituted the zero-tolerance process on the border that resulted in both people being detained and the family separation,” Kelly said. “He surprised us.”

The chaotic implementation then fell primarily on the Department of Health and Human Services and Nielsen, who came under fire for standing on the White House podium and saying there was no policy of separating families.

“She is a good soldier; she took the face shot,” a senior White House official said on background. “No one asked her to do it, but by the time we could put together a better strategy, she’d already owned it.”
This is worth noting as well, this is the pull quote most outlets are going with:

Quote:
Kelly’s supporters say he stepped in to block or divert the president on dozens of matters large and small. They credit him, in part, for persuading Trump not to pull U.S. forces out of South Korea, or withdraw from NATO, as he had threatened.

Also, pretty sure the "senior White House official on background" is just John Kelly still.

CNN was ginning people up for the Iraq war before we even knew what happened. That was some surreal ****. Everyone was hung-ho ready to take down Saddam because he might have WMDs even though he had nothing to do with 9/11 and he’d been a contained threat for a decade. It’s like literally everyone I knew had lost their mind. And then we had the PATRIOT Act which was just such a cheap knockoff of 1984 it was embarrassing.

Basically it just takes one illegal immigrant committing a major terror attack and Trump will be president for life. This country really is that dumb.

...which is why every single day I ask myself if I should just start grifting these people.

Also, I just heard that apparently mass murders get all kinds of fan mail in jail. Specifically, Chris Watts who murdered his pregnant wife and two toddlers has college girls sending him naked pictures and adding money to his prison account.

Set up a Gofundme for the Gofundme for the wall.

Solid job by those girls' parents.

In MIke Tyson's autobiography, he wrote that while he was in prison for raping Desiree Washington, he used to get lots of naked pictures from women in the mail. Naturally, Tyson did the honorable thing with such pictures: he sold them to other inmates for use to masturbate.

1. Start a 527 group with the acronym WALL. Welcome to America Legally Latinx. It's goal will be for immigration reform to expand legal immigration.

2. Start a GoFundMe for the WALL, and make it just confusing enough for Trumpers to fall for it (so like only mildly confusing).

3. Use most of the money to actually do what you set out to with WALL, and skim a little to pay yourself for the time and effort. Maybe $50/hr or something for your time.

Like what's the o/u on how much money you could grift for the greater good that way? Six figures? Seven?

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Question or the lawyers, and your answer does not constitute legal advice yada yada yada... Breitbart embedded a tweet (and the picture I tweeted) of mine in an article about NFL attendance. They never asked, although I assume they don't have to since a tweet is already published publicly, etc... Legally can I force them to take it down or anything like that? I've seen cable news outlets ask for permission to use it, but I assume that's because it's being put on TV, not just used online.

And the only real reason I even care to get it taken down is because **** Breitbart, that's why.

If they've been foolish enough to embed it instead of screencapping it, changing your handle to "**** Breitbart" will probably get the job done, and hey, good for a laugh, too.

From my experience Trumpers screen cap everything. A handful of them that sort of know how to use computers will screen cap something so the rest can share it.

On the forum I post at with a lot of Trumpers you can embed twitter yet they legit never do it, it's always a screencap of a twitter post.
