Rand Paul Opposes Giuliani and Bolton, Trump and Political Correctness, Hero Hillary: P.M. Links

  • TrumpTodd KraininSen. Rand Paul is totally opposed to both John Bolton and Rudy Giuliani as secretary of state candidates.
  • But Giuliani is apparently the leading contender.

Hillary Clinton did everything right in this campaign, and she won more votes than her opponent did. She won. She cannot be faulted, criticized, or analyzed for even one more second. Instead, she will be decorated as an epochal heroine far too extraordinary to be contained by the mere White House. Let that revolting president-elect be Millard Fillmore or Herbert Hoover or whatever. Hillary is Athena.

    Hello.

    They finally found violent Trump footage.

  • bacon-magic||

    And I don't see them linking the Trump voter getting the fuck beat out of him. If these are the only two cases so far, I'd say it is not very prevalent.

    Oh, they'll milk it though. They're put it on t-shirts, it will be a rallying cry, it will become a leitmotif, it will...

    ...bites into cherry pie.

    such a sweet surprise

  • BigT||

    My FB feed had a photo of a gay who had been beaten bloody by a group of 'Trump supporters'. Any confirmation? The local PD (San Bernadino?) had no record of it.

  • Chip Woodier||

    He left the bar alone, so how did anyone from inside get to the alley? I wonder if his wallet is missing.

  • Emmerson Biggins||

    I've read he is just some guy with Aspbergers. Like real Aspbergers, not the kind we pretend to have here, and this had nothing to do with Trump or Hillary.

    Of course it's just some guy on twitter (@lucabreu96), but I find that more credible than a CNN story.

    Fuck you Americans, Leonard Cohen died for your sins

    Leonard Cohen, it turns out, died the day before Donald Trump was elected president. His family chose to keep the death confidential until his remains had been buried in Montreal.

    That several-day delay in publicly acknowledging Cohen's passing transformed it from ordinary news — he was, after all, 82 years of age — to a portent of almost unbearable dread, at least for progressives, who, by the time the death was confirmed on Thursday, were struggling with the fact that a sneering, misogynistic braggart was about to become the most powerful man on Earth.

    Then, to top it all off, a beloved poet and singer who personified thoughtful humility — a man who thanked his audiences on his knees — was gone.
    ...
    No less a conservative firebreather than Glenn Beck used his talk show Monday to call Bannon a "terrifying man" who "has a clear tie to white nationalists."

    But mainstream reporters dutifully went on to quote Trump supporters who described Bannon as an honourable, decent all-round good fellow.

    Because my colleagues in the old media are being cowed; they know that the noisy demonstrations will die down, and Donald Trump will be President Trump, and the loopy far right, with Bannon down the hall from the Oval Office, will be exercising vast power for the next several years.
  • You ARE a Prog (MJG)||

    Jesus, people, he was an old man ready to die. Enough with the Cohen angst.

  • John||

    And enough time has passed, he was wildly overrated. Even his good songs were not that great. They would have a few lines of really clever and profound lyrics and then a bunch of esoteric shit that didn't mean anything as best I could tell. And he had a voice that made Bob Dylan sound like Sam Cooke by comparison.

  • Crusty Juggler||

    And he had a voice that made Bob Dylan sound like Sam Cooke by comparison.

  • TapDancingXenomorph||

    I never cared much for the original "Hallelujah" -- John Cale made it a gem.

    When you can so easily bring to life a heartbreaking analysis of divorce AND the botched lobotomy of a transsexual, that's talent.

  • Not a Libertarian||

    I have admittedly extremely bad and prosaic tastes in music but I have to fully admit, I only vaguely knew who Mr Cohen was and I can't say with conviction that I have ever heard a single one of his songs.

    The apparent loss felt at his death (voiced online, I have yet to meet an actual person who has ever even uttered his name) has taken me aback.

    Am I the outlier here?

  • John||

    No. He was always a music nerd thing. He is was the cool kid answer to a question. Before Jeff Buckley covered Hallelujah and they used the song in Shrek, no one outside a very small group of people had ever heard of him.

  • Juice||

    I dunno. Everybody knows that everybody knows song.

  • Zeb||

    And Bird on a Wire and Suzanne and Famous Blue Raincoat and Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye and The Future and Closing Time.

    He was great and wrote lots of well loved and frequently covered songs, get over it. If you don't like him, it's no skin off my nose, but stop trying to out-hipster the hipsters in your head.

  • Zeb||

    Sorry, the last bit was mostly directed at John.

  • Yusef Adama||

    He wrote Closing Time by Semisonic?

  • BakedPenguin||

    No, it's a different song.

  • ||

    It's a Montreal/Canada thing.

    I personally don't get it but then again, I don't worship anyone for the arts.

  • ||

    And most of the people gushing over him now don't even know what they're talking about anyway. They just know his name and image and feel they have to do go 'full MacDonald'.

    Posers.

    EVERYONE LISTENS TO THE MONKEES IN PRIVATE.

  • BigT||

    EVERYONE LISTENS TO THE fucks MONKEYS IN PRIVATE

  • John||

    Come on Rufus, you know you love Ms Dion. Just be honest. It's okay.

  • Zeb||

    Worshiping an artist is always dumb. As is acting like their timely death is a big deal. My relationship to his music is exactly the same as before he died. Though I have been listening to him a lot in the past few days just because it seems fitting.

  • ||

    My buddy is a big fan. I was being a bit obtuse; he does have great work.

  • grrizzly||

    I heard of Cohen because his song Everybody Knows was in Atom Egoyan's Exotica (1994). Am I hipster enough?

  • Yusef Adama||

    Not at all

  • Zeb||

    I'm not bothered that he died. He was old.

    I do think he is rated just about right though.

    His voice in his later years was pretty beat. But earlier stuff I'd much rather hear Cohen sing than Dylan. And Dylan's voice is way more fucked now than Cohen's ever was.

  • Zeb||

    I am sick of Hallelujah, though.

  • cavalier973||

    At least we still have Lou Reed.

  • Anomalous||

    He better be careful. 2016 has been a bad year for musicians.

  • Tundra||

  • John||

    I am sure Mr. Cohen wherever he is appreciates a life time of work being reduced to a cheap mawkish appeal for a horrible Presidential candidate from a country he wasn't even a citizen.

  • Zeb||

    I like to imagine that he would be amused and perhaps slightly annoyed by it.

  • BakedPenguin||

    They like to pretend they hate us. The amount of butthurt they show when they see we don't care what they think gives lie to that.

  • John Titor||

    400 years later, two armies clash in the radioactive ruins of the Old World as one preaches the Gospel of Leonard, which calls for peace and unity, while the other follows The Church of the Blue Raincoat, which teaches humility and compassion.

    I don't understand this.

    Please explain.

  • Pan Zagloba||

    Trump is evil. Leonard Cohen died. I have to draw you a picture now?

  • ||

    Ah. I clicked and saw Neil MacDonald. No wonder. I want my tax money back.

  • Not a Libertarian||

    But mainstream reporters dutifully went on to quote Trump supporters who described Bannon as an honourable [sic], decent all-round good fellow.

    Trump supporters might be saying such about Mr Bannon, but it is not as though the mainstream press has simply been nodding their heads in agreement.

  • Pan Zagloba||

    It has actually come to this: Beck, former Fox News wildman, is more courageous than the mainstream media when it comes to calling out an extremist.

    Everything has changed. A slight minority of American voters saw to that.

    This is a reality that can only be coped with, not changed.

    Yes, he's saying that mainstream press has been nodding heads to this because they are no longer telling the truth, just repeating Trump's lies.

    Bannon formerly presided over Breitbart, a news site with un-exquisite headlines like "Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy" or "Bill Kristol … Renegade Jew" or "Trannies 49Xs higher HIV rate."


    Note that "Renegade Jew" article was written by god damn David Horowitz, that famous Jew-hating neo-Nazi.

  • CatoTheChipper||

    On the way home, NPR explicitly stated as a matter of fact that Breitbart is racist, sexist and anti-Semitic.

    NPR represents the very best of American journalism, and would never state an opinion as a matter of fact.

    I don't follow Breitbart, so I went over there to see just how bad it is. Frankly, I didn't see much evidence of NPR's assertion other than its favorable coverage of Donald Trump, but that's enough for me. If Breitbart supports Donald Trump, it must be as racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, homophobic, and white-privileged as a basket of deplorables.

  • Raven Nation||

    Reposting from the PM Links*: Good to use anytime Tony shows his face in any thread for the next four or eight years.

    If I were worried that Trump had a shot at winning I would be well on my way to my bungalow in New Zealand.

  • The Last American Hero||

    There's no way we rid ourselves of Tony. He thinks the commentariat is chock full of enthusiastic Trumpers, and will take delight in laying every gaffe, policy fuckup and freedom infringement at our feet, like a senile feral cat that brings dead mice home to the wrong house.

  • ||

    This made me laugh and mist up a bit. Reminded me of my own stupid cat who passed on a while ago. He would come to the right house, but he would forget if he left his trophy at the front or back door and spend hours looking around for his missing mouse. Then his joy at finding it when he finally got around to using the other door.

  • ||

    Aww.

  • BearOdinson||

    Funny thing I was a very reluctant Trump supporter once he got the nomination. Still considered voting Gay Jay until about 4 weeks out. The more the left kept speaking, the more enthusiastic I got. When I woke up Wed morning, all I could do was sing "Ding Dong the witch is dead."
    I still have a number of areas that we will certainly have to fight on. But every day that goes by makes me happier and prouder that I did my (admittedly insignificant) part to keep that fucking cunt from the White House and I still don't think Trump is going to end up being all that bad.

  • John Titor||

    Pointless, Tony's already spewing the 'but but popular vote' nonsense. Because apparently the social contract is important until he gets fucked, then it's time the throw a temper tantrum.

  • Tony||

    I'm good. I'm white and have some money in the bank. Sucks to be a Muslim girl about now, though.

    On top of that, even if you're lucky enough to have fairly moderate Muslim parents, guess what? You drop out of the faith you're completely disowned. Had a couple people I know experience that. One had her father scream whore at her over and over again for having a non-Muslim boyfriend.

    Fun times. All I get is my Catholic mother calling me once and awhile to try and guilt me into church 'for my soul'.

  • Pan Zagloba||

    Tell her "Only if I can appoint an anti-pope. No? Then to marry a woman with claim on East Francia. Until then, no!"

    Is possession of marijuana for personal use going to be decriminalized in the meantime?

    Canada will lift its controversial visa requirement for Mexican visitors before the end of the year, while Mexico has agreed to end long-standing restrictions on Canadian beef imports, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday.


    Now, ass sex.

    The Liberal government is repealing what it calls a "discriminatory" law that makes it illegal to have anal sex under the age of 18, unless it is between a husband and wife.

    It is also interested in how local law enforcement is begging people to come forward with stories of being harassed.

    He tells me to leave the cups on the counter and the socks on the floor. He'll get to them eventually. But I can't. I don't believe him. And I can't write in a house where something is wrong. — S

    Trump transition team eyeing Teachers' Union Enemy Michelle Rhee

    The Donald Trump transition team is eyeing former Washington, D.C. public school chancellor Michelle Rhee for Secretary of Education, multiple sources close to the transition tell the Daily Mail.

    The appointment of Rhee – who has been dubbed 'Public Enemy No. 1' of the teachers' unions -- would be a bold move by the Trump team, and a signal that his administration is gearing up to take an aggressive stance on education reform.

    It would also cut across partisan lines. Rhee is a lifelong Democrat, and a proponent of Common Core, a set of federal education standards that is opposed by many conservatives and Donald Trump.
  • DesigNate||

    Iowa lawmaker to colleges: 'Suck it up, buttercup'

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Republican lawmaker in Iowa says he'll introduce legislation that would cut the budgets of state universities that spend money on students upset about the presidential election.

    The Des Moines Register (http://dmreg.co/2fRd0W5 ) reports that Rep. Bobby Kaufmann calls the planned legislation the "suck it up, buttercup bill." It would target state universities that use taxpayer dollars to fund election-related sit-ins and grief counseling above and beyond what is normally available to students.

    I am guessing Iowahawk has something to say about this.

  • Cdr Lytton||

    Excellent. High school kids around here are being allowed to skip class to "protest". I want a refund for those missing hours.

    The sad part is one of the papers quoted one whining about how Clinton won the popular vote and therefore should be president.

    France Insists on Perpetual State of Emergency

    PARIS (AP) — French President Francois Hollande says he wants the country's state of emergency prolonged until its presidential election next spring.

    Hollande said in an interview Tuesday with three French media outlets that France is "at war" in three places. Those are in Iraq and Syria as part of the coalition carrying out airstrikes, in Mali where French soldiers are still trying to rout Islamist extremists, and Hollande says "we are confronting people, very regularly, who want to attack us here, on our soil."

    He says "I want to prolong the state of emergency until the presidential election" in April and May, noting that parliament must approve the measure.

    Surely that will help him come election time? Sounds stupid to me. Its de facto acknowledgement you aren't in control.

    hmm, not as overwhelming for Secretary Clinton as I would have expected.

  • GILMORE™||

    You don't actually have to call her "Secretary", you know. She wasn't even very good at it.

  • Anomalous||

    If Hillary is light itself, Dunham bends her.

    Richard Branson's supersonic commercial plane prototype

    Moneyquote:

    "Sixty years after the dawn of the jet age, we're still flying at 1960s speeds," Scholl, the founder and CEO of Boom, said. "Concorde's designers didn't have the technology for affordable supersonic travel, but now we do. Today, we're proud to unveil our first aircraft as we look forward to our first flight late next year."

    Somebody doesn't understand why SST died. I'll give you a hint... BOOM.

  • Michael S. Langston||

    Wow. You'd think those in the airplane building business would know that SST was killed by governments as opposed to 60 years of engineering laziness.

    But here we are.

    May I bring up what is the most resoundingly earth-off-of-its-axis news that I have discovered in the last hour:

    Jack Antonoff, who is the current boyfriend of actress Lena Dunham

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Antonoff

    Dated Scarlett Johansson for a year !!!!

    http://www.nydailynews.com/ent.....-1.1699369

  • 0x90||

    As of 2012, Antonoff has been dating actress, author, and filmmaker Lena Dunham, whom he met on a blind date.
  • SimonD||

    Maybe he sold his soul to the Devil for Scarlett, and Lena is his torment?

  • SimonD||

    P.S.: ALWAYS read the fine print.

  • GILMORE™||

    The only detail i needed was from his Wiki page

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Antonoff

    where it points out that he didn't move out of his parents house until he was 28

  • Sir Digby Chicken Caesar||

    Could he possibly be Egyptian? 'Cause I remember what you said about Egyptians last week.

    Nancy Pelosi could be in trouble as House Democrats delay vote

    No formal challenger has surfaced to Pelosi, but Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan has emerged as the de facto leader of a younger group of House Democrats looking for new direction.

    [...]

    But even if Pelosi stays, the source acknowledged a need for change elsewhere among the Democratic leadership.

    "Our caucus needs a change, but it's not at the top. Replacing a woman with a white male would mean that the next time our nation's leaders meet -- the President with Senate and House leaders -- will look like the first time our nation's leaders met," the member added, referring to Tim Ryan's possible candidacy.
  • SimonD||

    Oh wow. That quote is real. I thought you were making fun of them.

    It really is impossible to parody a Progressive, isn't it?

  • TheZeitgeist||

    I do recall reading about D-prog factions gearing up for fight over I think #4 spot on leadership slate. Contest is boiling down to Congressional Black Caucus tool, and Congressional Hispanic Caucus tool.

    The identity group infightinging over slices in an ever-shrinking Congressional pie is microcosm of their plans for the country.

    Is Rand Paul going to stay a member of the Trump Party?
