  1. President Trump fired Preet Bharara after the former U.S. attorney refused to resign when asked.

    A martyr is born.

    1. Hello.

    2. Imagine the Secret Service Agents’ faces if we all sent one to the White House.

    3. By the end of the week, Reason will be joining their new besties in defending and praising Preet.

      Heck, Welch practically did this morning on MSNBC.

      1. On the one hand, he is an ass. On the other the other hand, he was investigating Cuomo’s little empire. It is something of a mixed bag

        1. VGZ is incapable of grasping that level of nuance.

    4. He can always get a job as a look-alike for Rodney Dangerfield.

  2. True fact: Daylight Savings Time can lick my taint and balls.

    1. And you want to have a legit libertarian party….

      1. Every party is a legit libertarian party once i get there.

    2. No, it’s the best. We should stay at DST all year round.

      1. I mean the transition. Fuck losing an hour of sleep, yo.

      2. Seconded!

      3. Seconded!

        1. Literally, apparently.

  3. The spacecraft Cassini sent back images of the Saturn moon Pan.

    Critics pan.

    1. Paniscus or Troglodytis?

  4. The spacecraft Cassini sent back images of the Saturn moon Pan.

    News of Trump finally reached the spacecraft and it decided to moon us.

  5. The NCAA chose the 68 men’s basketball teams for the Division I championship tournament.

    All in best of seven serieses.

  6. President Trump fired Preet Bharara after the former U.S. attorney refused to resign when asked.

    Conspiracy theory time! TRUMP FIRED PREET BECAUSE PREET’S CORRUPTION INVESTIGATIONS WERE GETTING TOO CLOSE TO SOME OF TRUMP’S DEALINGS.

    [throws tinfoil hat in the air, runs off]

    1. This is exactly how every single news outlet is portraying this. I think we’ve reached the point that these people are even more unhinged than the most fervent of the Obama-conspiracists at the beginning of his term, except now we have the NYT, WaPo, CNN, NBC, and ABC pushing these theories instead of just Fox News and Breitbart

      1. It is kind of beautiful though. I wish the media were this insane and scrupulous with every president.

        Trump brought the Russia shit on himself when he was publicly egging on Russia to release Clinton info. I even agreed with him at the time, even thought I never thought America would elect a Cheeto, but figured this would cause the media to permanently tie him to Russia. Not that there isn’t a lot of smoke when it comes to Trump and Russia to begin with.

        1. What is the smoke tying russia to trump and in what way are you thinking?

          1. If you can’t admit that there is smoke, there isn’t much point in attempting a conversation, huh?

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbfUjotYmUo

            I was in agreement with what he said at the time. In retrospect, it seems increasingly likely that Russia was behind the DNC hacks. I still think it’s a good thing that the DNC emails got leaked.

            1. Can you summarize? Thanks. You made the claim so it should be easy. Seeing your response it suggests you dont have much. Pity

              I am not sure also what your opinion is of the trump russian connection entails. Can you at least share this?

              1. Do you really think I’m going to spend my time writing a short essay for you when you’re already aware of all of this information? Again, the intellectual dishonesty is what makes you Trump supporters so insufferable.

                What is the point of me speculating as to what their link entails? Maybe it was as simple as them leaking DNC materials and not RNC materials, and Trump agreeing to be more agreeable with them. Maybe that’s not even a bad thing. Who knows.

                1. So ya got nothing? I asked you a simple question based on YOUR own claim. Yet here you are deflecting saying you dont want to back it up

                  Just say so man

                  1. What a wast of time.

                    1. Konima what is the trump to russia link? What are you thinking is there?

                      Please provide evidence of collusion if so

                2. Do you have evidence of the second paragraph? Seems liked you jump to a conclusion about what is there

                  They didnt get in rnc emails because of security…not some deal that you didnt provide evidence of. Please correct this alternative fact

                  Who are the trump supporters? I just asked you to back up your claim

                  1. just yesterday, we heard from the Russian ambassador about speaking to BOTH candidates. I am struggling to figure out what is so sinister about an ambassador speaking to the people most likely to be the next leader of the nation that he’s assigned to.

                    1. Conspiracy nuts like konima makes their lives worth living apparently

                3. “Not that there isn’t a lot of smoke when it comes to Trump and Russia to begin with.”

                  What is all this smoke?

                  1. Smoke is from kimono’s bong.

                4. You spent the time to reply, you surely can spend a bit more to cite evidence.

        2. Trump brought the Russia shit on himself when he was publicly egging on Russia to release Clinton info.

          From what I remember he made a joke and as evidenced by the fact that he made the joke, the “Russia shit” was already upon him at that time.

          1. Yep. This is correct. Konima please correct your alternative facts

          2. The Russia shit was not upon him in the same way it is now. At that point, it was obviously the media trying to draw attention towards the leakers and away from the leaks. Are you not aware of the Trump server, of which 99% of the traffic was the result of Russian and Devos traffic? The way the Russian bank responded, which is very similar to the way that the Democrats responded to the DNC leaks, is very indicative as well.

            Does Trump really strike you as the type of guy who would be pro-Russia if there were not something else going on? Can you not at least admit that it seems obvious that Russia wanted Trump to be elected? Can you budge on anything?

            1. “Does Trump really strike you as the type of guy who would be pro-Russia if there were not something else going on?”

              Was it the guy on the grassy knoll?

            2. How was this russian bank server determined and what was found?

              Trumps energy policies are not good for russia who heavily relies on high fossil fuel prices.

              Tinfoil konima!

              1. How was the Russian bank server determined? Huh? Is that even a comprehensible question? Do you know computers bro?

                I’ll attempt to translate your poor attempt at sounding competent in the realm of technology: Are you denying that the communications ever occurred? Even the Russian bank isn’t denying that.

                1. Yea how did you determine it’s existence and content. What was on it btw?

                  1. Classic talk radio talking point right there. We likely won’t ever know the content of theses communications, nor what was said in various meetings. So, following that line of reasoning, I guess that Trump is off the hook.

                    You know who could release the evidence that you so desire, assuming the evidence exonerated him? Trump. He must have an excellent reason for not releasing his tax returns after he promised that he would. I’d love to hear the justification for it that you’ve come up with. Will be exciting to grade your mental gymnastics.

                    1. So you are just assuming based on what your partisan preference is with no proof? Sort of like trump does with claims of illegals voting

                    2. Basically what you are saying is you know in your head it must be true because you dont know if it can be disproven

                      You sound like a devout partisan to me imo. You want to believe talking points with no regard for evidence

                2. Which communications? Communications are not evidence of collusion or a sinister plot…this would be jumping to a conclusion

                  1. According to the bar you’ve set, you’re only allowed to form any type of theory or conclusion if a certain type of evidence is produced that you know isn’t likely to be produced. Again, Trump could disprove much of this. Again you engage in intellectual dishonesty by refusing to address to the part of my response that you weren’t capable of disputing. You’re boring.

                    1. Why should trump have to disprove allegations you are making without any proof? And same goes for others when he makes claims like 3 million illegals voted. You dont get to throw stuff out there and conclude well if not disproven then it must be true

                      What is the smoke with collusion you alluded to here? That you claimed. You could have finished by now if stop deflecting.

                      You dont have anything other than your conspiracy theories you want to believe are true and thus dont like being called out on them for validation

                      Put up or stfu konima

                    2. https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/burden-of-proof

                      I am getting the suspicion konima you are in fact a dumbass. Prove me wrong!

            3. What else do you stipulate is “going on”?

            4. Can you not at least admit that it seems obvious that Russia wanted Trump to be elected?

              For argument’s sake, let’s stipulate that this is so. And? Most foreign powers have a preference between our candidates, much like we often have a preference between theirs. I would have thought the sweet uranium deal cut while Hillary was SoS would have made her the Russian front-runner, especially when coupled with the re-set stupidity and proclamations of “smart power” under the Obama regime.

              1. “For argument’s sake, let’s stipulate that this is so. And? Most foreign powers have a preference between our candidates, much like we often have a preference between theirs. I would have thought the sweet uranium deal cut while Hillary was SoS would have made her the Russian front-runner, especially when coupled with the re-set stupidity and proclamations of “smart power” under the Obama regime.”

                I don’t really disagree with any of the aforementioned. The Russians wanted JFK elected as well, and worked to make that happen. That’s how things work.

                I wouldn’t be surprised if Hillary was into same shady shit with the Russians at some point. I seem to recall the Russian donation to her charity being cancelled or something, though. However, when it came election time, she seemed more in the pockets of India and China. Hence her hard lining against Russia.

                1. and perhaps her hard-lining against Russia made the Russians believe that Trump was a better option. But there is a big leap between that and all the conspiracy/collusion talk that has made the rounds.

                  1. “and perhaps her hard-lining against Russia made the Russians believe that Trump was a better option. But there is a big leap between that and all the conspiracy/collusion talk that has made the rounds.”

                    It’s possible. It’s just unlikely given how things have unfolded.

                    1. What things have unfolded such that there is evidence of collusion?

                    2. Why don’t you revisit your posting history. Do you think one sentence questions that you already have the answers to do anything but embarrass you? Yawn.

                    3. You made the claim i am asking you to support it is all.

                      Thanks in advance

                2. What is the shady shit going on with the russians you mention?

            5. “Does Trump really strike you as the type of guy who would be pro-Russia if there were not something else going on?”

              Like the Taiwan call, Trump is using Russia as a needle to the Chinese, whom he sees as the pre-eminent threat to the US. Why people don’t see this is baffling. Trump excoriated China daily for 18 months – he is obsessed with them, not Russia.

              1. “Like the Taiwan call, Trump is using Russia as a needle to the Chinese, whom he sees as the pre-eminent threat to the US. Why people don’t see this is baffling. Trump excoriated China daily for 18 months – he is obsessed with them, not Russia.”

                Now we’re back to Trump having some hidden genius that he has never proven to have. What’s more insane: me theorizing that there might be some shady Russian dealings going on, or people claiming that Tump is secretly a genius and has simply hidden that from us all for all of his life? That’s a great litmus test for discovering how deluded you are.

                1. This is ironic considering you talk about all this smoke and russian collusion that is undeniable…but yet wont say what it is

        3. Konima in all your replies you could have used that time to back up your claims instead. But now u have undermined your credibility due to your refusal.

          I am not sure why

        4. I wish the media were this insane and scrupulous with every president.

          So you want the media to be schizophrenic?

      2. Wood chipper manufacturers has a sad.

    3. *Tinfoil hat was so yesterday, all the cool kids unplug theirs microwaves.

  7. …leading the president of Turkey to compare the Dutch to Nazis a week after comparing the German government to Nazis.

    You know who else was surrounded by Nazis?

    1. Anthony McAuliffe and the 101st Airborne?

      1. Nuts, you beat me to it.

        1. That is how it’s done.

    2. Hillary voters, allegedly?

    3. A guy at a Trump rally.

    4. Men, I am not ordering you to attack. I am ordering you to die. In the time that it takes us to die, other forces and commanders can come and take our place.

      Not Ataturk.

    5. Bucky Barnes?

    6. Indie?

    7. Quisling?

    8. Hitler’s dog, obviously.

    9. Residents of Stalingrad?

  8. Center-right French presidential candidate Francois Fillon apologized for tweeting an anti-Semitic caricature of center-left opponent Emmanuel Macron.

    He can always have a fallback career at Charlie Hebdo.

  9. France and Belgium’s elections are even bigger shit shows than ours. I love it.

    1. To be fair, most country’s elections are bigger shit shows than ours. Unless the “wrong person” wins, then “our democracy is in danger” or some such horseshit.

      1. Fat Boy Kim agrees.

  10. A California man was arrested after scaling the fence at the White House and roaming the ground with a can of mace.

    The president countered with his can of maga.

    1. It’s like whoopass, except guaranteed manufactured by union labor right here in the States, and it doesn’t work.

      1. Guaranteed to be shit or your money back.

    1. The cuts Trump plans to propose this week are also expected to lead to layoffs among federal workers, changes that would be felt sharply in the Washington area. According to an economic analysis by Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Analytics, the reductions outlined so far by Trump’s advisers would reduce employment in the region by 1.8 percent and personal income by 3.5 percent, and lower home prices by 1.9 percent.

      Washington, D.C., circa 2018

      1. I’m sure that’s seen as bad news in several places, but not here.

    2. Get a (productive) job.

    3. That would be amazing. Though I’m not holding my breath.

    4. Great news. But only the beginning, I hope.

  11. The smell of burning Preet is a Scotsman’s friend! Smokey, with a hint of spice!

    1. Old Spice?

  12. President Trump fired Preet Bharara after the former U.S. attorney refused to resign when asked.

    Did the firing involve woodchippers?

    1. That would’ve been an epic Trump Tweet. A Picture of a Woodchipper, and “You’re Fired!”

      1. That’s so cute that you think Trump fired that guy for us.

        1. I don’t think so, but it would’ve been fun.

          1. It’s a beautiful dream man.

    2. Unfortunately, no.

  13. “To forbid or even seriously restrict the use of so holy and gracious an herb as the hemp would cause widespread suffering and annoyance,” the report said. “It would rob people of solace in discomfort, of a cure in sickness, of a guardian whose gracious protection saves them from attacks of evil influences.”

    1. +1 common sense

  14. President Trump fired Preet Bharara after the former U.S. attorney refused to resign when asked.

    Now he can start his career as a loose cannon detective, his chief yelling PREEET! every time he goes off book! Maybe he’ll even have a partner who is too old for this shit, and they will bring down a black market woodchipper dealer!

  15. The Netherlands revoked the travel permit of the foreign minister of Turkey, who was planning to attend a pro-Erdogan rally, leading the president of Turkey to compare the Dutch to Nazis a week after comparing the German government to Nazis.

    Maybe when it gets to the point that Turkish presidential candidates are campaigning in your country because you have so many Turks living living within your borders, it’s time to slow down the immigration a wee bit.

    1. Tell me about it.

      http://www.reuters.com/article…..SKBN15S0K7

    2. Also, emigrants who keep voting for the ruling party of 15 years are probably not ‘refugees’.

      1. Those Turks have probably been living there for decades and can’t or won’t “assimilate”.

  16. Riots break out in Holland as Turkey warns it will respond to Dutch diplomatic snub in the “harshest way”

    Riots broke out in Rotterdam last night as Turkey warned the Netherlands it will retaliate in the “harshest ways” after Turkish ministers were barred from speaking in the city.

    In a row over Ankara’s political campaigning among Turkish emigre, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan had branded its fellow NATO member a “Nazi remnant” and the dispute escalated into a diplomatic incident on Saturday evening.

    Turkey’s family minister was prevented by police from entering the Turkish consulate in Rotterdam.

    Hundreds of protesters waving Turkish flags gathered outside, demanding to see the minister.

    Dutch police used dogs and water cannon early on Sunday to disperse the crowd, which threw bottles and stones.

    These Geert Wilders campaign ads write themselves. MINDER! MINDER! MINDER!

  17. It is sop for new admins to get rid of old attorneys. Usually doesnt take as long. My understanding is they ask all to provide resignation letter and then decide which ones to accept or reject.

    I dont really see the reason for the freakout here

    1. Because TRUMP.

    2. You kidding me? The Middle Class Socialist market eats this Russian conspiracy stuff up! That’s the reason. All the people who profited from the economic arrangement of the last eight years are paranoid they’re going to lose their piles o’ gold.

      Keep on burning that CNN 24hr Russia-Gate, brought to you by Fidelity.

      1. This is great.

  18. A rookie Miami police officer is behind bars (and probably out of a job) after he was arrested on charges of stealing from the people he pulled over.

    Lt. Javier Ortiz, president of the Fraternal Order of Police in Miami, said in a statement that he will also attend Monday’s news conference.

    “The Fraternal Order of Police commends the outstanding efforts of the MPD Internal Affairs Division in keeping our police department and community safe,” he wrote.

    There ain’t no “probably” about that “out of a job” when your union backs the guys who busted you. I can guarantee you all further reports will refer to him as an ex-cop, the thin blue brothers ain’t getting any stink on ’em.

    1. He must be a real piece of shit if even the FOP won’t back him.

      1. More likely he testified against one of ‘his brother in blue’ recently.

      2. +1 demotion to security/mall guard

  19. The spacecraft Cassini sent back images of the Saturn moon Pan.

    Who’s idea was it to name a moon after a piece of cookware? What planet is the moon Caserole Dish orbiting? What about Double Boiler or Tureen?

    1. I don’t know about the others but Tureen was definitely a planet in one of the Star Treks.

    2. Better than a planetoid named after a Disney character’s pet.

    3. The two with the lowest albedo should be named Pot and Kettle.

      1. Didn’t Ming hail originally from the planet Wok?

  20. There’s a new Mike Brown video. You have to watch this interview and pay attention to the details.

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/…..spartandhp

    1. I refuse to do either of those things. What the hell is the point of this video? That he didn’t rob every single store he visited that day?

      1. It’s part of fake news being pushed by CNN, who heavily edited the video to make it look like a clerk at the store was a drug customer of Michael brown’s which the insinuation that the robbery the next day was part of a drug deal gone wrong.

        1. Which totally paints Michael Brown in a better light and will change peoples’ minds!! The video and the “robbery/drug deal” had little to do with the investigation or what happened in the street anyway. If Eric Holder and Obama’s DOJ found the officer’s account to be believable, then I think it is safe to say that the cop acted within his legal bounds. What those legal policies are is what should be debated, not this shit.

          I don’t understand why these people choose the absolute worst fucking icons/martyrs for the cause. There are plenty of more straightforward examples of police violence and shootings yet they always have to pick the stupid ones and try to portray every dumbass victim as an innocent perfect child. It makes me less sympathetic to their cause.

          1. “”I don’t understand why these people choose the absolute worst fucking icons/martyrs for the cause. There are plenty of more straightforward examples of police violence and shootings yet they always have to pick the stupid ones and try to portray every dumbass victim as an innocent perfect child.”””

            Exactly. I’ve been saying the same thing. I am not less sympathethic because I believe the cause is vaild, but I think they hurt the cause by using criminals as examples.

    2. Surely this is the evidence that will cause something to happen to someone.

    3. I guess too much time has gone by since the last time a cop fatally shot a black guy for the “mainstream” media’s liking, so they have to resort to dredging up old ones in order to get the black community all riled up?

      1. Also, the last 6 of what the media would describe as “mass shootings” were all done by people who are not white males.

        1. Uh maybe,

          It’s a low bar for what they call a mass shooting.

  21. This is probably the warmest blizzard in the satellite record.

  22. Inb4 Robby lynx: Carleton University comes under heavy criticism after gym scale removed

    The scale was removed two weeks ago “in keeping with current fitness and social trends,” Marshall explained in his email.

    “Although it can be used as a tool to help measure certain aspects of fitness it does not provide a good overall indication of health and here at athletics we have chosen to move away from focusing solely on bodyweight,” he said.

    “If you need a number to focus on in regard to reaching certain fitness goals we suggest using girth measurements. You can start by recording measurements in multiple areas, for example your torso, hips, chest, legs and arms. You would then revisit these measurements after a few weeks to keep tabs on your progress.”

    1. I agree shouldnt just look at weight. But a scale is useful if you are looking at shedding extra pounds to see if delivering

      Look should be the focus but knowing weight is a factor depending on circumstances

    2. You can start by recording measurements in multiple areas, for example your torso, hips, chest, legs and arms. You would then revisit these measurements after a few weeks to keep tabs on your progress.

      This must be why people can say “I lost 4 pounds and 97 inches! Thank you miracle dance craze!”

      1. I lost 25 ft. in a day once, I lent my tape measure to my neighbor and never saw it again.

        I know a guy that lost 25 lbs. and two feet in less than a single day. He stepped on a landmine.

        1. Probably still safer than some methods people use to lose weight.

    3. In three years they will remove tape measures because it doesn’t provide a good overall indication of health.

      1. Mirrors next

  23. From ThinkProgress:

    National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn says how many people lose health coverage is really only about headlines.
    Cohn answered that under Trumpcare, everyone would be *offered* coverage.
    [emphasis mine]

    Ahahahahaha… that’s some pretty awesome backpeddling from what his boss said as a candidate. Does anyone hold Trump responsible for anything he says? Ah well… he’s full of shit and a liar, but everyone knows that so why keep harping the obvious?

    1. What is incorrect about that? Do you propose forcing them to take it?

      Note: aca there is still 25 million who dont check the box

      How did you feel about the if you like your plan you can keep it line? Or is that cool cause team d?

      1. I was never for the ACA. I’m for what your boyfriend proposed: universal coverage for everyone. Do you understand the difference between the words guaranteeing [coverage] and offering [coverage]?

        1. There is no such thing as universal coverage seeing how there is finite resources in the world

          The aca was terrible for the middle class. If poor and wanted to check the box i can see it may be a good thing. Of course that is paid for by high premiums which go to reimburse health care providers

        2. The aca didn’t guarantee coverage to everyone seeing how there is 25 million still.

          You do understand they will have the opportunity to get covered? If not that is on them

        3. Do you understand the difference between the words guaranteeing [coverage] and offering [coverage]?

          Do you understand the difference between a govt plan that forces participation and one that provides an option for participating?

          1. Nope. I also dont think the govt should be involved in healthcare

            1. I’m with you; just wondering if Gleemore sees the difference between force and voluntary participation.

              The one reality I’m struck with in this Ryancare debacle is that the question of whether govt should be involved at all is no longer up for discussion. The Pubs have ceded that point.

    2. Health coverage does not equal care fyi or mean it covers much of anything

      “…Ah well… he’s full of shit and a liar, but everyone knows that so why keep harping the obvious?”

      Leave Obo out of this!

    4. If you have an offer for coverage that does seem like a guarantee of it.

  24. Konima: claims smoke of russian trump collusion

    AS: asks for what this smoke is and what they are colluding about…just a simple thinh

    Konima: start calling AS a trump supporter an dishonest. Where have AS been and how does not know. Go look it up self as konima wont provide

    Typically these type of reactions suggest the claimer doesnt have any meat and evidence to support said claims. That is was established purely based on what they want to believe

    If konima wants to be like trump who makes claims with no evidence to support assertions….that is fine by me, just konima and trump should not whine about alternative facts

    1. An argument devolved into name calling? On the Internet? Noooooooooooo!

    2. “Typically these type of reactions suggest the claimer doesnt have any meat”

      Yeah, kimono is eunuch.

      1. Wouldn’t a eunuch have the meat but lack the potatoes?

    1. I’ll bet he didn’t fill out form 27b-6.

  25. I have to say I liked the role of defending a competent president from partisan attack better, but I’m warming to the role of calling a liar a liar

    Scott Pelley: Universal health care?

    Donald Trump: I am going to take care of everybody. I don’t care if it costs me votes or not. Everybody’s going to be taken care of much better than they’re taken care of now.

    Scott Pelley: The uninsured person is going to be taken care of how?

    Donald Trump: They’re going to be taken care of. I would make a deal with existing hospitals to take care of people. And, you know what, if this is probably?

    Scott Pelley: Make a deal? Who pays for it?

    Donald Trump: ?the government’s gonna pay for it.

    Yeah, ok, liar.

    1. So what would you like him to do here? Would you support trump if he had the government pay for it?

      Seeing how you are a cheap ass with your money i am not sure you would like singlepayer at all.

      1. There’s nothing I’d like him to do. He’s a disgusting pig, who I use as an example to my daughter of what men should not be like. And he’s a serial liar, who lies– and I say this without hyperbole– almost every day. There’s something you can do though: can you stop excusing his lies? It’s beneath you and makes you complicit.

        1. Another moron taking Trump literally not seriously. When will you learn?

          Oh, wait, you’re a moron. Never mind.

        2. Hmm cause on here you lie all the time? Doesn’t set a good example.

          Curious what was your take on hillary and her lying? Seeing how you slobbered all over her. Or was that what your daughter should follow?

        3. But it was cool to suppory hillary who had a habit of compulsive lying?

    2. I recall the last guy talking about people being able to keep plans/docs they liked, realizing $2,500 in savings, and a host of other things that turned out to not be so. Was he “the competent president” you were defending or are you noticing that people in politics do not always tell the whole truth?

      1. No, I don’t defend him. It was a stupid promise and something he couldn’t possibly deliver on. Can you stop letting Trump’s lies pass and making excuses for him. He’s a fucking pig.

        1. Didnt ya used to be the american socialist? seems kind of ironic

        2. It was a stupid promise and something he couldn’t possibly deliver on

          He could delivered on at least some of the promise by vetoing the ACA. Unlike “universal health care” which is a pipe dream that never has existed, “not drastically changing the regulatory regime” is a realistic and deliverable goal.
