O'Reilly confirmed not to be returning. In unrelated news, Jason Chaffetz, one of the most notable cases of Clinton Derangement Syndrome in the House, has confirmed he won't seek re-election. (Putting this here because I'm too lazy to make posts in multiple threads, but the misogyny involved in the Clinton witch-hunts has been frequently understated, so it's still appropriate here.) Today is a good day.

No word on who O'Falafel's replacement will be yet, btw.

That handwriting has been on the wall for some time. After all, providing such high-quality representation to the people of Utah's 3rd Congressional District was really cutting into Jason's punching-the-clown-while-reading-Clinton-emails time.

This is both one of the most scathing and one of the best book reviews I've ever read.

Our Lady of Complicity | Laurie Penny

I suspect Ivanka would fail not merely the Turing test but also the Voight-Kampff test. It is important to note that she is essentially the Marine Le Pen of her family: she is fascism with a polite veneer, which pretends not to be fascism. And, much like her father, when you examine her more closely, there is no there there. There are no principles, no convictions. She says what she thinks people want to hear, regardless of whether there is any consistency between statements, and she speaks in vagueries that allow people to infer whatever meaning they want to hear. Ultimately she is just as narcissistic as her father, and potentially every bit as dangerous.

(If you didn't watch John Oliver's piece on her and Jared, you should do that too.)

So, this is pretty interesting and I suspect I will probably have more to say about it soon. I'm extremely tired right now as I'm in the process of moving, so you'll have to forgive my brevity.

Female Privilege

Oxford student Lavinia Woodward 'may avoid jail' for knife attack - BBC News

Quote:
An "extraordinary" Oxford University student who stabbed her ex-boyfriend in the leg may avoid jail as it would affect her career prospects, a judge has said.

Lavinia Woodward, 24, attacked the man at Christ Church college, while she was under the influence of drink and drugs.

She admitted inflicting grievous body harm, the Oxford Mail reported.

At Oxford Crown Court, Judge Ian Pringle QC said he believed the attack was "a complete one-off".

What's interesting is this is more or less what Russian female liberation got swallowed by...

O’Reilly noted that the world is currently in a “rough age” in which technology is breeding bad behavior. “The downside of that is turning us into a nation where hatred is almost celebrated in some quarters,” he wrote.
Golly. I'd find that a lot more convincing if both O'Reilly and Ailes hadn't spent decades working very hard to promote and celebrate hatred.

Skeptics in today's world are in actuality simply sycophants to mainstream doctrine.
