Tonight on The Independents: Mark Hannah & Deneen Borelli on the Las Vegas Shooting & Hillary’s Poverty; Eli Lake on Bergdahl, Michael Malice on the New NoKo Prisoner, Dan Caldwell on the V.A., Plus Sexy After-Show

Scumbags |||Did the cop-killing rampage of Jerad and Amanda Miller spring from everyday right-wing rhetoric? Was it just the latest example of the "Constant cop-killing, by people who echo the NRA talking points and the conspiracy theories of the Internet wackos"? Did it show how "Fox news has finally yelled fire in a crowded theater"? Or is the political interpretation a bit more complicated than all that?

On tonight's episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, repeats three hours later), we'll start off with some debate on that topic with Party Panelists Mark Hannah (former Kerry/Obama aide) and Deneen Borelli, author of Blacklash: How Obama and the Left Are Driving Americans to the Government Plantation. Those two are also slated to discuss Hillary Clinton's heartbreaking poverty, the GOP's $60 million initiative to reach black voters, plus AirBnB's move into the dinner-party market.

Daily Beast national security reporter Eli Lake (read him in Reason here) will come on to discuss the latest news about Bowe Bergdahl. Known crazy person Michael Malice (read him in Reason here) will talk about the latest U.S. hostage situation: Ohio lawyer Jeffrey Fowle, detained for the crime of having a Bible in his hotel. And Dan Caldwell, issue and legislative campaign manager of Concerned Veterans for America, will talk about the latest V.A. audit.

Aftershow begins on foxbusiness.com/independents a few moments after you say "AAAAGGGHHHH!!!"

    Holder gotta go.

    Eric Holder made history in 2009 as the first African-American U.S. attorney general. If Rep. Paul Gosar has his way, Holder can add another first to his bio: the first cabinet secretary to be impeached.

    Gosar, R-Ariz., tells U.S. News he plans to either draft articles of impeachment or co-sponsor existing impeachment legislation introduced in November by Rep. Pete Olson, R-Texas, which has 26 co-sponsors. He anticipates deciding between the two options next week

  • Bo Cara Esq.||

    It strikes me as silly to impeach a cabinet officer. They serve at the pleasure of the POTUS, whatever they've done wrong should be the President's responsibility, and if they've done something impeachable and the President doesn't remove them then the President should be impeached.

  • pmains||

    Removing cabinet officers was the original purpose of the impeachment power. You don't remove a hereditary king, but you can make governing more difficult for him by removing his cabinet members and banning them from holding office in the future. The next guy knows that breaking the law on orders of the president means a political death sentence. You could never remove the president himself, doing so would be tantamount to undoing the previous election. The president's party almost always has the 1/3 plurality to block such an action.

  • Hyperion||

    No, what makes them so angry is the same thing that makes all proglodytes so angry. They can't get all the attention that they want no matter how much they try to demand it. They are angry because their all powerful state can't command each and everyone of us to like and even adore them.

    Somebody asked about the MBTI this morning. I like this article about it.

    The data indicate that there is no evidence of bimodal distributions for the MBTI. Instead, most people score
    between the two extremes. This means that although one person may score as an E, his or her test results may be very similar to those of another person's, who scores as an I.
    Because
    type is said to be a constant characteristic, we would expect that people's personality would not change over time. Several studies, however, show that even when the test-retest interval is short (e.g., 5 weeks), as many as 50 percent of the people will be classified into a different type.
    Research
    on the factor analysis of the MBTI has not produced convincing results. In one study, based on the results of l,29l college aged students, six different factors were found. In addition, the study authors found a high level of
    measurement error. Specifically, 83 percent of the differences among the students could not be accounted for by the MBTI.

    And so on.

  • ||

    (MBTI meaning Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, BTW)

  • ||

    And for those curious, while I don't know how the author of the feels about it, an alternative taken more seriously in academia is the "Big Five" or Five Factor Model, measured, for instance, with the NEO PI-R (which costs money).

    Some Berkeley guy has a free test, though.

  • Iucundus (ex Damned Fool)||

    If you need to quickly sketch a person and remember a bunch of caveats about its limitations I find the MBTI to be useful. If you know someone deviates from their profile's expected behavior, react to them and not to the sketch. And if you are bad at something your type is supposed to be bad at, work to improve it and don't use the MBTI as an excuse.

  • ||

    That's all well and good, but if there are better alternatives out there (which is indeed the case), why use it at all and not just one of them?

  • Iucundus (ex Damned Fool)||

    I just don't type people who don;t display strong tendencies and only work with the letters I'm confident about. It's easier to make an educated guess about which profile someone more closely matches than it is to guess their numerical scores. Also what I consider conscientious or agreeable may not match with the Big 5 criteria but whether I approve of it or not it's easier to tell a thinker apart from a feeler and an inflexible person (J) from a more flexible one (P).

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    My MBTI is 21.5 which, as you all know, is below the cutoff for overweight and well below obese.

  • mr simple||

    My MBTI my last season was in the top quintile of all batters.

  • Greg F||

    I took this bogus test ... evaluation ... what ever you want to call it, at my last job. I gamed it and it was unable to put me in any of the groups.

    What I learned was if you work for a bunch of morons that believe in this stuff it plays into their ego. Essentially, the morons I worked for had no real skills. Basically emotionally driven twits who were arrogant and convinced they were better than the people that really made the place run. In short, enviro leftist.

    It basically put all the people with real skills in worker bee categories. The dumb shits that were in charge were told they were the creative ones. Not hindered in their creativity by the constraints of actually knowing something. I can't think of anything that hinders creativity more than ignorance.

  • lap83||

    I'm glad we're on the subject of MBTI still, because I just want to say that Obama is ENFJ.

    And you know who else was ENFJ?

  • wwhorton||

    All I know is I'm INTJ. You know who else is? Emperor Palpatine.

    Yeah.

    Now and again I wind up INTP, which puts me with Yoda. Both are an improvement over my twenties, where I usually wound up INFP, or Luke.

  • David Wall||

    David J. Pittenger's article is accurate.

    Myers Briggs is cheap and easy to administer but is based upon Jung's unsubstantiated archetypes. It is unreliable and as a consequence cannot be validated to predict behavior.

    Inventories of the Five Factor Model of personality, on the other hand, have been extensively researched, they have moderate to good reliability (above r .7), and some of its factors have been found to have been found to be inherited in crucial twin studies.

    The FFM is about as good as it gets for personality inventories in psychology.

  • Bo Cara Esq.||

  • Iucundus (ex Damned Fool)||

    The Maleficent rape scene that we all need to talk about.

    It's a Wicked-like backstory, and in it, we learn why Maleficent casts a spell on an evil baby. She's a fairy before the black magic begins. She soars through the forest with freedom and passion. She falls in love with Stefan, a human. He returns to kill her so that he can be king.

    But he doesn't kill her. He rapes her of her ability to fly. He drugs her and leaves her so that he can bring her wings back to the king of the humans like Dorothy was told to fetch the broom of the Wicked Witch. She wakes up moaning, wailing. Stumbling. Utter devastation.

    For fuck's sake! Mayhem is a crime in itself! Not everything bad that happens to a woman is rape! They ruined my second-favorite Disney villain! (Not the highest bar, to be fair.)

  • ||

    He rapes her of her ability to fly.

    Not knowing the story, I'm confused by this statement. Does he actually rape her?

  • Irish||

    No. He takes away her wings, and apparently that's rape now.

  • Hyperion||

    Before long, if a girl likes you and you offend her because you are only thinking about her friend with the great boobs, that will be rape also.

  • Almanian!||

    Well, she was not....unresponsive.

  • ||

    You are not the one who is confused.

  • Iucundus (ex Damned Fool)||

    No, Stefan is not Stefan Smith. He just cuts off her wings. By this logic, cutting off someone's legs is also rape rather than mayhem.

  • Irish||

    But he doesn't kill her. He rapes her of her ability to fly.

    This reminds me of the joke from the office where every time Andy says he wants something, he tells someone to beer it to him.

    Beer me that disc!

    It's like every time something bad happens to a woman, it's secretly rape.

    'He raped my feelings!'

    'He spilled beer on me and now my dress is raped!'

    'I cut my finger off using a circular saw! I should have been more careful to make sure it didn't rape away my finger like that!'

  • Hyperion||

    It's just rape all the way down.

  • Anonymous Coward||

    So the moral of the story is...rape gives you super-evil-powers?

  • Hyperion||

    Well, you see, you get super-evil powers by being born into the privileged male patriarchy, which everyone posting here has been. Except for Tony and Shreek of course, they're victims along with everyone else, except for us, the patriarchy. Oh, and the women folk here, they're victims also, but we have brain washed them and so they don't realize it yet.

  • Almanian!||

    Libertarian women - if they exist in reality, and not merely in the rape-fevered mind of libertarian rapemales - are only libertarian because of self-hate and denial imposed on them through teh patriarchy.

    Check your male privilege and you might see it, rapist.

  • Irish||

    I had an uncle who stepped on a mine in Vietnam.

    He was always pissed at the Vietcong for raping his leg off.

    Top comment

    I'm sorry but...every single kids movie, every fairy tale since the beginning of time has some kind of scene where someone takes something from someone. It doesn't mean rape at all. I cringed when I read "he rapes her of her ability to fly." I've been at the receiving end of an assault and really, the film doesn't offend me at all. Articles like this offend me, looking for metaphors and anti-feminist imagery at every turn, finding it where there is none. It does nothing for anyones cause, in fact I think it antagonises people and I really wish it would stop.

    and a brilliant reply

    I don't suppose the fact that he drugged her contributes? Take a film 101 class and stop being so self-righteous. edit: Excuse me, I don't mean to be insensitive to your incident. I just don't think you're right.

    Sounds like a fun guy. Of course one of his "likes" on the bookface is "Were you dissing Canada? I couldn't hear you over my health-care benefits".

  • Hyperion||

    Look man, every fairy tale in history, written by the male patriarchy of course, are just rape manuals for young patriarchy members!

    Little Red Riding Hood? Raped by the wolf of the patriarchy!

I guess that's why they call them true believers.

    The economicus/reciprocans gulf is so massive and so fundamental to the debate that I'm unsure whether Noam understands that even voluntary socialism in the form of families and monastic communities is difficult to maintain and has a strong tendency to break down. When half of all voluntary families fall apart, it's laughable to think that entire communities where socialism is forced on people wouldn't end in disaster.

    "THE TUAM TANK: ANOTHER MYTH ABOUT EVIL IRELAND

    "The obsession with Ireland’s dark past has officially become unhinged.

    "For proof of the maxim that ‘A lie will go round the world while truth is pulling its boots on’, look no further than the Tuam 800 dead babies story. Courtesy of a modern media that seems more interested in titillating readers with gorno than giving us cool facts, and thanks to a Twittermob constantly on the hunt for things it might feel ostentatiously outraged by, the story about babies being dumped in an old, out-of-use septic tank by nuns at a home for ‘fallen women’ in Tuam in Galway made waves in every corner of the globe. Then, a few days later, having finally strapped its boots on, the truth - or at least a more sober analysis of what might have really happened in Tuam - staggered on to the stage. And it was a very different story to the fact-lite, fury-heavy tale that had already gone round the world....

    "On almost every level, the news reports in respectable media outlets around the world were plain wrong. Most importantly, the constantly repeated line about the bodies of 800 babies having been found was pure mythmaking."

    From rawstory comments:

    Sorry, asshole. We liberals think for ourselves - unlike you conservative morons who toe the party line and obey without question. The Koch Brothers,...

    Go to Taki Magazine where his articles are posted and he gets flamed from the other side: a list maker, rather than a good writer, and not a true conservative.

    Gun conversation with a friend, on the subject of the idiots in Las Vegas:

    Friend: "AR-15s should be banned, because reasons. But police officers should be able to have them, because reasons"

    Me: "If you're going to ban them, why should cops still have them? I'm willing to see such high powered (yes, I know) weaponry banned, so long as cops can't have them either"

    Friend: "But I want cops to have them in case somebody tries to shoot at them with a non-legal AR-15!"

    I didn't continue the argument because I knew it was fruitless... but c'mon.

  • Dances-with-Trolls||

    in case somebody tries to shoot at them with a non-legal AR-15!"

    Some serious facepalm there, Andy. You ok?

  • Andrew S.||

    Gave myself a concussion.

  • Anonymous Coward||

    Friend: "But I want cops to have them in case somebody tries to shoot at them with a non-legal AR-15!"

    The Independents Attire Review, 9 June 2014

    Goodbye, Hatchet-Carrie-Edition

    - Kennedy: It is a little known fact that Kennedy, after leaving MTV, spent a few years doing the Mummenschanz ciruit. She still misses putting on her all-black leotard and her toiletpaper-face and doing a little po-mo dance routines to the melodic stylings of Karlheinz Stockhausen. Our opinion: we'd Putty That Face anyday.

    - Matt: We now have documented proof of both a New White Shirt, and a New Blue Shirt. *This, after months of nothing but me grumbling about Pink and Grey. I sincerely believe I had something to do with this, and I believe the proof of my point should be apparent: Does Matt look great? That depends - but i can assure you *he doesn't look ridiculous*, and that's a big step forward. The question: why is every single shirt collar identical? Is no one reading my stuff? You gotta mix it up bro. Maybe talk to the drug dealer sitting next to you...

    To wit=
    - Kmele: Is Kmele Foster Gonna Have to Choke a Bitch? The Pimp is strong with young Kmele. Whether this getup is apropos for a TV talk show may be a matter of debate, but that he Runs Shit Up In This Piece is most certainly not. what this enseble is missing is his thick Jamaican patois talking about how monogomy is a social myth.

    Merci Beaucoup

  • Derpetologist||

    My advice to Matt is to wear a shirt made out of an upside-down potato sack.

  • GILMORE||

    What works for you and Barney Rubble is not necessarily the basis for contemporary Men's fashion.

  • Derpetologist||

    Wigs and frilly shirts used to be fashionable. I say Matt dresses like the Scarlet Pimpernel.

  • GILMORE||

    *

    You may be on to something.

  • Derpetologist||

    I read the reason people started wearing wigs was because Louis XIV went bald and wore one. Then all his suck-ups starting wearing them. Pretty soon almost all men wearing them.

    Food for derp!

  • Notorious G.K.C.||

    Is there any difference between a hookah and a drunk coed?

  • SusanM||

    That's easy - $20 and smaller criminal charges

  • GILMORE||

    To be fair, water pipes are legal in some places.

  • GILMORE||

    A bong typically uses a 'carb' such that you are either 'filling' or 'emptying' the air from the water chamber (aka 'bong hit')

    wereas a hookah you draw from the pipe at your leisure rather than 'hit it'; you puff it like you would a traditional tobacco pipe.

  • SusanM||

    Thanks :) I went to a hookah lounge and got some pretty weird looks when I kept calling it a bong.

  • SweatingGin||

    heh, they're probably afraid you're a narc. "WATER PIPE! WATER PIPE!!!"

  • SusanM||

    Probably. There's a store nearby which sells hookahs and accessories and there's signs up all over it basically saying "Don't call them anything but hookahs or you'll be banned".

    highlights from the series and the final race

    Last year was probably the greatest series since the 1980s. A guy got killed. There were a half dozen crashes/capsizes. Average boat speeds are now 30-40 knots downwind, on hydrofoil. The crews are full of Olympic athletes and these boats require ridiculous levels of physical exertion to run.

    Its F1 on water. If you think guys 'driving cars' is a sport, yet sneer at this, you're fucking high.

  • ||

    Looks like it, eh?

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    You don't know.

  • Grand Moff Serious Man||

    The Kings would be the first to tell you that going down 3-0 is not a guarantee of defeat.

  • ||

    Happened three times in NHL history where a team came back from a 3-0 deficit before L.A. did it this year. I'd say the probabilities of it happening twice in one year is astronomically low.

    Starting to feel like a sweep.

  • From the Tundra||

    3-0 Kings. Mike Richards still has some skills...

  • Dances-with-Trolls||

    Everyone in Philly knew this except the Flyer's front office.

  • From the Tundra||

    4th? I reckon he's higher than that.

  • From the Tundra||

    Nope.

    Marian Gaborik – Anze Kopitar – Dustin Brown
    Tanner Pearson – Jeff Carter – Tyler Toffoli
    Dwight King – Jarret Stoll – Justin Williams
    Kyle Clifford – Mike Richards – Trevor Lewis

  • Dances-with-Trolls||

    Well that looks like the sort of problem every coach in the league would like to have.

  • ||

    Yeah, when Justin Williams is 3rd line you got depth. Though 1st or 4th line doesn't matter much if a coach rolls all lines.

  • ||

    Stoll. Meh. I figured he can go as high as 3rd since his production has come off. Still, that's deep up the middle.

  • Dances-with-Trolls||

    On a hunch looked up the Kings' GA: 2.02GA on the season. With that goal tending and strength up the middle it's hardly a surprise.

  • From the Tundra||

    "I have been overseas in Afghanistan and in NATO nations for half a decade while the insanity of the National Rifle Association expanded and exploded, and the NRA became, essentially, the tool of death in the United States. They made mass killings normal.

    Well done, NRA. But this shit is too much.

    Constant cop-killing, by people who echo the NRA talking points and the conspiracy theories of the Internet wackos.

    That dumbass has a whole passel of strawman he had no problem burning down in the name of stroking his authoritarian ban-boner--I guess it's rather appropriate he's spent the last "half-decade" scratching that itch against people who'd rather he fuck off back home.

    He doubles down on the shitlib inanities in the comments, too:

    Robin, is that not what you are trying to do? Suppress speech through your statements of support of guns, and advocating your own guns (and de facto, given the environment, violence towards) over people who, like me, who have no guns? I should think that this avocation of the use and possession of guns, towards people like me who do not have guns, is the essence of the bullying exhibited by the fascists. Wouldn't you?

    Proof that proglydytes lack any self-awareness whatsoever.

    "DUCK AND COVER!!"

    An equally worthless defense strategy, psychologically soothing, yet bereft of any meaningful protection.. They should call them 'Comfort Blankets™'
