I think it's a mistake to try to estimate public outrage using journalism's column-inches or videoclip-seconds as a proxy. Yes, that Trump and his team are appalling is news that has grown stale and no longer garners the same level of coverage it once did, but that doesn't mean there's anyone who, having once reached that conclusion, has since changed their mind, forgotten, or ceased to care.


So I'm calling bullshit.

Why are they even still pretending? Might as well have just written "el trabajo te libera" and been done with it.

(Apologies if I mangled the grammar slightly - I still understand Spanish reasonably well but can no longer reliably formulate my own grammatical sentences.)

At first I thought maybe the formal Usted might be more appropriate there, but thinking further, talking down on people 'te' is used. Say, when the King of Spain addressed the blabbering Hugo Chavez with ?Porque no te callas?

Yes with no sense of irony whatsoever the director if ICE used a Nazi defense to explain how they aren't Nazis.
His defense sounded better in the original German: Befehl ist Befehl.

In the same speech where he bragged about being the world's smartest person. (Ron Howard narrator: "He isn't.")

Anyway:

Just don't call them Stasi; that would be rude. - Hullabaloo

Quote:
Agents with the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general’s office interrupted a CBS News interview with a former ICE spokesperson and whistleblower Wednesday.

James Schwab, who was a spokesperson for Immigration and Customs Enforcement until March, was speaking to CBS News’ Jamie Yuccas when two DHS agents appeared at his door.

Schwab later said he was “very surprised” by the visit, and that he believed it was “absolutely” an attempt to intimidate him. The interview footage aired Thursday morning.

Schwab left the agency after, he said, he was asked to perpetuate a lie on Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ behalf regarding Libby Schaaf, the mayor of Oakland. The day before an ICE raid in Oakland earlier this year, Schaff spoke about it publicly, warning residents to take care.

Afterward, acting ICE Director Thomas Homan accused Schaff of preventing 800 arrests with her warning. Sessions repeated the that number, which Schwab said is not accurate, in a speech later.

When asked by reporters about Sessions’ claim, Schwab said he was instructed to refer them to a previous statement he’d made about Schaff, without correcting Sessions’ error. That’s when he quit, he said.

“They just said that they wanted to talk to me about the leak with the Oakland mayor,” Schwab told Yuccas after the agents left on Wednesday. He said he’d never communicated with Schaff.
The president* has called for Oakland's mayor to be prosecuted, btw.

Because it turns out that running an image search on one's smartphone is not entirely intuitive. Fixed; thanks for the heads-up.

I'll leave this ProPublica piece here in hopes it'll serve as a reminder to read it when I'm not already sick to my stomach:

How Mitch McConnell Made Donald Trump - ProPublica

There's also the Financial Times reporting on the family connections between Trump and Kennedy, which, to be honest, I still haven't absorbed either. That's behind a paywall, I believe.

Estonia is also an EU member and after Trump said that about the EU I am sure the dude decided enough is enough.

I don't envy US ambassadors and embassy personnel at this point in history.

Default Re: Good King Trump

So, one thing i can thank Trump for is introducing me to Twitter. I've discovered that Twitter is nothing but trolls! Everybody on Twitter if fucking trolling somebody. The president, fox news, the Russians, etc.. Now, if my time at the FF has taught me anything, it's taught me how to spot a troll and how to retroll that troll.

I hate to admit it, but I have a history of reading Yahoo News, and usually for the comments. Over the years I have noticed a steady stream of professional trolls pretty much take over Yahoo. But compared to Twitter, Yahoo is fucking amateur hour. I'm amazed to watch these guys pop up on a fox news twit, zero followers, zero posts, then post something complete inane, and then they immediately get 100 likes and a thousand followers. A lot of the time, the English skills of the author are obviously wanting.

So, I decided to put my FF training to good use and so created my own troll account on Twitter. Without further ado, I'm am proud to introduce to the grand Twitter-verse: Comrade Svink Terr! He grew up working in a sewage treatment plant in Chernobyl, and his family were hard line party members. True believers, if you were. A few years ago he got a job on a Putin troll farm, now he lives the "big life" in Moscow, and in his spare time he Tweets from his own personal account. He types in ALL CAPS and uses a LOT of !!!!!!!!!!. He absolutely loves the American Confederacy, and he calls them Comrade Confederates. He truly feels like he shares a strong bond with the American right. Guns, God, and glorious revolution!!!

I've been taking Svink out for a few trial runs and the results have been very interesting. Svink created the account, and then he followed a bunch of popular American right wing and communist Russia accounts. Twitter caught him a couple of times, and challenged him to identify myself, but their challenge wasn't that strong, and I helped him through that. When the Tweets from these places started filling his feed, he went through the comments and followed the biggest trolls he could find and started making friends.

Now, he doesn't get a lot of pubic attention, and he shouldn't because you don't want to engage a guy like Svink. He just wants attention and all you'll be doing is giving him what he wants if you engage him. But, all it took was for him to get under the skin of some right wing shill with several thousand followers, and then the world started opening up to him. I mean he's only 24 hours old, but the few people that have followed him and liked his Tweets are VERY interesting. I mean, I tried to make my character so buffoon-like that the parody would be obscenely obvious, but I clearly have a LOT of work to do to achieve that end. Then, where does parody start and reality end? It all gets mixed up in the Twitter-verse!
