Kavanaugh's Male Privilege

Of the many things that were notable and disturbing at the same time was the temper tantrum that was pitched by Brett Kavanaugh during th Senate earing last Thursday. Kavanaugh yelled, berated his opponents and, a time or two, openly weeps over how cruel it was that he couldn't just step into the job that he felt that we was entitled to have.

If a woman had sat there and yelled and cried, she would have been dismissed out of hand as being emotional, hysterical and certainly not of a temperament fit for even a trial court, let alone the Supremes. She likely would be laughed out of the hearing room.

So it's OK for a male Republican to yell and cry in a pubic setting.

Another thing of note was the speed at which the Republicans got rid of the prosecutor who they hired to question Dr. Ford once it became clear that the prosecutor was going to seriously question Kavanaugh about the allegations. Which was a pretty despicable move.

What Most Men Don't Get

Via Balloon Juice:
I wish every man in the entire world would read this. Men, walk in our shoes for just 30 seconds by reading this post. Guys ask why women are so pissed off. Even guys with wives and daughters.

Jackson Katz, a prominent social researcher, illustrates why. He’s done it with hundreds of audiences:

“I draw a line down the middle of a chalkboard, sketching a male symbol on one side and a female symbol on the other.

Then I ask just the men: What steps do you guys take, on a daily basis, to prevent yourselves from being sexually assaulted? At first there is a kind of awkward silence as the men try to figure out if they’ve been asked a trick question. The silence gives way to a smattering of nervous laughter. Occasionally, a young a guy will raise his hand and say, ‘I stay out of prison.’ This is typically followed by another moment of laughter, before someone finally raises his hand and soberly states, ‘Nothing. I don’t think about it.’

Then I ask the women the same question. What steps do you take on a daily basis to prevent yourselves from being sexually assaulted? Women throughout the audience immediately start raising their hands. As the men sit in stunned silence, the women recount safety precautions they take as part of their daily routine.
  • Hold my keys as a potential weapon.
  • Look in the back seat of the car before getting in.
  • Carry a cell phone.Don’t go jogging at night.
  • Lock all the windows when I sleep, even on hot summer nights.
  • Be careful not to drink too much.
  • Don’t put my drink down and come back to it; make sure I see it being poured.
  • Own a big dog.
  • Carry Mace or pepper spray.
  • Have an unlisted phone number.
  • Have a man’s voice on my answering machine.
  • Park in well-lit areas.
  • Don’t use parking garages.
  • Don’t get on elevators with only one man, or with a group of men.
  • Vary my route home from work.
  • Watch what I wear.
  • Don’t use highway rest areas.
  • Use a home alarm system.
  • Don’t wear headphones when jogging.
  • Avoid forests or wooded areas, even in the daytime.
  • Don’t take a first-floor apartment.
  • Go out in groups.
  • Own a firearm.
  • Meet men on first dates in public places.
  • Make sure to have a car or cab fare.
  • Don’t make eye contact with men on the street.
  • Make assertive eye contact with men on the street.”
― Jackson Katz, The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help
One example of this in action: Decades ago, the State of Vermont tore down its unattended highway rest areas after a couple of women were kidnapped from them.

I've not heard of a man needing to have his big brother come by and stare down a workplace harasser. I know women who have done that.

But hell, elect a clown to the presidency who has had a long track record of sexually harassing women and it should not have surprised anyone that he would pick one of his peeps for the Supreme Court.

Trump Thinks George Washington Was a Total Loser

It hardly bears snarking that Presidente Bone Spurs thinks he's better than George Washington.

Eighty Thousand Dead

An estimated 80,000 Americans died of flu and its complications last winter, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
If 80,000 Americans died in terrorist attacks last year, we'd be under martial law, there would be concentration camps holding everyone who ever said anything bad about El Presidente Cheeto.

First and foremost, get a fucking flu shot, people. Even if it's only 20% effective, if you do get the flu, it'll be of less intensity. 20% protection isn't anything to sneeze at. Wash your hands after being in public places (or take George W. Bush's advice and use Purell).

When it comes to the butcher's bill, context matters. 80,000 dead from the flu, 37,000 in car crashes merit a big "meh". Less than 3,000 dead in 9-11 merits years and years of clothes-rendering and sacrificing civil liberties (not to mention being afflicted with Rudy Giluliani).

Trump's Dain Bramage Reasserts Itself

Speaking in triumphal terms, Trump approached his address to the world body as something of an annual report to the world on his country’s progress since his inauguration. He showcased strong economic numbers, declared that the U.S. military is “more powerful than it has ever been before” and crowed that in “less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”
That statement is so laughable as to be an indication of brain damage. It does not even bear refuting, for that would give credence to his puffery.

Now Trump says that was intentional. Even though, at the time, he was clearly taken aback by the response. But that's OK, for Trump lies as effortlessly as a dog licking his balls.

Meanwhile, Kavanaugh claimed that he was too busy going to church each Sunday to sexually assault girls. Right. All those priests who molested kids were also going to church every Sunday and probably on other days, as well.

America's Dad Goes to a New "Gated Estate"

His Hollywood career and good-guy image in ruins, Bill Cosby was led away to prison in handcuffs Tuesday at age 81 for perhaps the rest of his days, sentenced to three to 10 years behind bars for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his gated estate.
Cosby declined the opportunity to speak before the sentence came down, and afterward sat laughing and chatting with his defense team.
Former model Janice Dickinson, who was among the 60 or so women who have come forward to accuse Cosby of drugging and violating them over the past five decades, looked at him in the courtroom and said: “Here’s the last laugh, pal.”
Not Much to Add to that.

Get Off Thy Ass and Register to Vote

If you are a citizen of the U.S., you are eligible to vote and you are not registered to vote, then get off your motherfucking ass and go register to vote.

Today is National Voter Registration Day. And just because the Party of the Confederacy is making it harder to register to vote and to vote, that's no reason to not register and vote. In the first 2/3rds of the last century, people were killed for registering to vote. Saying "ooh, it's just too hard" denigrates their sacrifices. Saying that people have fought and died for freedom disrespects their deaths if you don't exercise your freedom to vote.

You say your vote doesn't matter? In my county, a few years back, an election had to be redone because so few people got off their asses to vote that there was a tie. That cost tens of thousands of dollars.

More to the point, if you don't vote, then your opinion is valueless. If you don't vote in November, then every time that you are about to offer an opinion on politics, you should, instead, punch yourself in the face.

Get off your asses, register to vote and vote.

100 years ago this month, the Meuse-Argonne Campaign got underway. It was the largest battle in American military history and the costliest. In less than seven weeks, half as many Americans would die as who died in the Vietnam War.

Also 100 years ago, the second wave of the Spanish Flu gathered steam. Worldwide, the pandemic killed far more people than did the First World War.

80 years ago, the Great New England Hurricane struck Long Island and New England. Much of the woodlands of southern New England were, at the time, white pine. The hurricane blew most of them down. Federally-funded logging salvaged the timber. The hardwood trees, which survived, repopulated the forests. The fall foliage tourism would not have happened absent the Great Hurricane of 1938.

74 years ago, the Battle of the Hurtgen Forest began. It's considered the longest single battle in U.S. Army history and was widely considered at the time to be a meatgrinder. Historians have come to regard the battle as a defeat for the Army. On the other hand, the success of the Germans may have emboldened Hitler to order the Battle of the Ardennes, which didn't end so well for them (and which ended the Luftwaffe as an effective force).

40 years ago, "September" was released by Earth, Wind and Fire:

Donald Trump Couldn't Shove His Foot Any Further Into His Mouth With a Hydraulic Ram

Touring the area [flooded by Hurricane Florence] on Wednesday, U.S. President* Donald Trump warned South Carolina that “water is coming your way.”

“Now it looks nice but it’s really the calm before the storm,” he said.
I'm pretty certain that "the calm before the storm" happened the day before the rains and winds came from the hurricane, not afterwards.

In the listing of Stupid Shit Said by Trump, this one is going to take a fairly high rank. Not as high as his repeated pronouncement that the crowd at his inauguration was larger than Obama's, or his claim that neo-Nazis are nice people, but not terribly far behind those.

John Hancock is Watching You (If You Have a Policy With Them)

One of the largest life insurance providers in North America will no longer offer policies that do not include digital fitness tracking.

John Hancock will now sell only "interactive" policies that collect health data through wearable devices such as a smartwatch.
If this is true, then if you are an executive with John Hancock, I respectfully hope that you contract a severe and loathsome disease, one that results in boils on your genitals and pustules on your face, and may you die soon, painfully, and often.

This is a perversion of the namesake of your company, a Founding Father and a patriot, who pledged his life, liberty and sacred honor in the cause of freedom. But now you propose to electronically shackle your policy owners. You dishonor his name. For shame.

Anyone who buys into this is a schmuck and a fool, and that include anyone who uses one of those electronic snitches from Progressive and Allstate.

Stay Classy, Trumpanzees

Prof. Christine Ford, who has accused Judge Kavanaugh of drunkenly assaulting her when he was in Georgetown Prep, has had to move her family because of death threats, most likely from Trumpanzees.

Meanwhile, President* "Grab Them by the Pussy" Trump finds it hard to believe that his nominee could have done things as crass a Trump bragged about.

I've been fortunate in my life not to be sexually assaulted. But I can tell you that my friends who were (and who were conscious at the time) never forget.

Trump may think it's hard to believe. I find it hard to believe that somebody with an established career and a family life would risk blowing all that up with a trumped-up allegation. The letter of support that Kavanaugh got from other women is meaningless, for reasons that should be evident to anyone with a functioning cortex.

I'm pretty sure that you can red all sorts of vile smears and teenaged innuendo. I haven't gone looking for it, because, well, there are enough people as it is who are deserving of having their testicles stomped.

Bloomberg 2020: Oh, Hell, No!

Michael R. Bloomberg is actively considering a campaign for president as a Democrat in 2020, concluding that it would be his only path to the White House...
It used to be that mega-millionaires and billionaires with more money than they knew what to do with bought ranches and farms. Now, instead of running hobby ranches, they're running for the presidency?

What do we then get in 2024; the winning billionaire from 2020 versus Jeff Bezos?

If this country has gotten to the point that the presidency is being held by billionaires, whose main interest is in preserving and increasing their wealth, then the system is rotten beyond reasonable repair.

For one thing, it's pretty clear that the recovery from the Great Recession has been limited mostly to the investor class. Oh, sure, there're jobs again, but wages have been largely stagnant.

One thing that Trump grabbed onto was that the system has failed those who aren't rich. Trump, of course, has done nothing other than work to stamp harder on those who work for a living.

Trump is a symptom of how rotten things have become. So is Bloomberg. Neither one is a cure.

I don't know where we go from here.

Manafort's Deal

You can read it here or here.

Manafort agrees:
  • Pleads guilty to the remaining charges in his trial in Virginia;
  • Pleads guilty to an amended fiiing in D.C (both are federal courts);
  • Sentencing will be done after he’s finished cooperating with investigators;
  • The sentencing guidelines would put him in prison for 17-1/2 years to 21 years, 10 months (lots of incentive to cooperate);
  • If Manafort doesn't fully cooperate, the prosecution can ask for more time;
  • If he does anything dumb after he signs the agreement, he could get more time;
  • He'll be fully debriefed, turn over all documents, and testify in any other proceedings;
  • Waives all rights and procedural defenses (statutes of limitations, admissibility of evidence, etc);
  • Agrees not to take any pay for books, speeches, appearances, or anything like that'
  • Forfeits several properties in NYC, New York state, several bank/brokerage accounts (and that this happens right now). 
There are two properties that the Feds agree to take in exchange for his home in Virginia and his Schwab account. One is a condo in Chinatown (NYC) and the other is his condo in Trump Tower.

So Manafort gets to keep something. On the other hand, once he finishes paying for his lawyers, he'll probably have nothing much left. But he'll still do less than 15 years (with good time), if he proves his worth to the Special Counsel's people.

And then there is this:
How vigorously the Special Counsel's office might cooperate with state AGs and other federal attorneys will likely depend on how much value they can get from Manafort.

If the Trump Boys haven't hired top-notch criminal defense layers by now, then they're dumber than they look.

No doubt that Rudy the Mouth will be all over the talk-shows tomorrow to cast as much shade as he can. Which at this point, may be damned little.

Edited to add: Lawfare's analysis is worth the read. Unlike your humble scribe, those folks do practice criminal law in Federal courts.

Oh, the Implied Irony

Pope Francis is visiting the Italian island of Sicily to pay homage to a priest who was murdered by the mafia 25 years ago.

Father Giuseppe Puglisi was shot dead while working as a parish priest in the city of Palermo.

The priest was renowned for working with young people to keep them away from drugs and the mafia.
As pointed out in the cutline to a photo of Puglisi, his catchphrase was "And what if somebody did something?"

So let's now jump to the end of the article:
Last month, Pope Francis visited Ireland where he asked for forgiveness for members of the Catholic Church who "kept quiet" about clerical child sex abuse.
The Beeb did all but scream in pointing out the difference between the Pope praising a priest to advocated speaking out against the Mafia and asking forgiveness for those in the RCC who kept quiet.

I gather that the distinction is that, when it comes to criminal practices, the Mafia is more of a generalist and the RCC is more of a specialist organization.

Manafort has agreed to flip.
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort agreed Friday to cooperate with the special counsel’s Russia investigation as he pleaded guilty to federal charges and avoided a second trial that could have exposed him to even greater punishment.
The overnight Trumpian Tweetstorm should be epic.

Manafort's lawyers likely made a proffer to the prosecution about what he could tell them if they accepted the deal. Maybe somebody pointed out that if the Feds took all of his shit and sold it off, he would get nothing back if Trump pardoned him on his way out the door. But if he cuts a deal, maybe he can keep some of his shit.

If you're in the U.S., you're probably getting wall-to-wall coverage on Hurricane Florence. On the other side of the world, Typhoon Mangkhut is moving to tear the hell out of Luzon in the Philippines and then into mainland Asia.


One funny thing about the Right: You can find no shortage of calls from them to "let drug addicts die", instead of saving their lives by using Narcan. Yet when people refuse to heed evacuation orders and then need rescuing, you don't see or hear conservatives calling to "let them drown".[1] Why is that?

Morons With Microphones; Weather Ed.

Once again, there are idiots from the networks and cable news/weather channels going outside in a hurricane to tell you "my gosh, there's a lot of wind and bejeezus, it's wet!"

I know that I've been wondering about their stupidity from the first hurricane season that I was blogging up through the last one.

It's about as dumb as it would have been to do a stand-up report on the front lines during the Battle of Hue.

Now It's Germany's Turn; RCC Ed.

More than 3,600 children in Germany were assaulted by Roman Catholic priests between 1946 and 2014, a leaked report has revealed.
Sooner or later, it should be clear to all that religious leaders have no more moral authority than business or political leaders.

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling; Manafort Ed.

Days before in-person jury ­selection is set to begin in his second trial, President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort is in talks with the special counsel’s office about a possible plea deal, according to two people with knowledge of the discussions.
The reason may be because Trump's lawyers have convinced him that pardoning Manafort, arguably in order to hinder the investigation of a criminal conspiracy involving Trump and/or his sons, would, in itself, be an impeachable offense.
When I asked if there was a particular action Trump could take as president that [Rep. Jerry] Nadler would definitely call impeachable, he relayed a scene from the 1788 convention where Virginia ratified the Constitution. In discussing the unlimited presidential-pardon power, he explained, one delegate asked what would happen if a president engaged in a criminal conspiracy and then pardoned his co-conspirators. Nadler said: “And James Madison answered: ‘Well, that could never happen, because a president who did that would be instantly impeached.’

“They viewed the impeachment power as a limitation on the pardon power,” Nadler continued. “What that also means is if the president pardoned co-conspirators—if we concluded that he was in a conspiracy with various other people and the Russians to use foreign influence on the election, and in order to stop that investigation he issued pardons to his co-conspirators—well that, we are told, is impeachable.”
They could impeach Trump, but getting to a conviction in the Senate is another question. Nixon wasn't willing to run the table on that, but Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were and survived.

The difference between 1974 and 2019 would be that, to my mind, Republicans in 1974 had some care for the rule of law. Republicans, nowadays, only care about power. They'd suffer Trump sleeping with a teenager if it meant that, by so turning a blind eye, they'd keep their seats in the Senate.

17 Years Ago, We Took a Punch

You can go read what I wrote last year, if you wish. Or this post from 2011, after bin Ladin was snuffed.

Tomorrow will be the first day that a child born after 9-11 can enlist in the armed forces. That kid can go on to fight in the war that came out of 9-11.

What we now have, in that war, is a war in which, like a certain war fifty years ago, the bilge being spewed by MACV USFOR-A is nothing like what reporters on the ground are seeing.

Same shit, different war.

On a global note, it's been pretty clear that what we've been doing has made the problem of extremism worse. Our current president closes his eyes to the extremist threat, unless they yell "Allahu Akbar". If they're Nazis or any similar ilk, they're "good people", according to the Orange Blob.

Not much changes in that regard, ever.


The "cone of uncertainty" for Hurricane Florence is looking like a soda straw:

Florence is a cat 4/5 storm. The weather talking heads are saying that there is a strong high over the Northeast, which is blocking Florence from turning north and following the coast.

If you're in the coastal areas in the path of Florence, you probably should have already headed for Alabama. If it stalls out soon after it makes landfall, it could be nasty all the way to Appalachia.

Meanwhile, five thousand miles to the west, Hurricane Olivia is drawing a bead on Honolulu:

Click on either image to enlarge

Olivia is a lot weaker, a weak cat 1, so coverage on the networks is a lot less focused.

Should either storm have the potential for affecting you, be safe. But be sensible.

I was living in the Boston area when Hurricane Bob was tracking towards there. I was at a grocery store, buying a few supplies. There was someone behind of me in line with a cartload of frozen food. I looked at the shopped and said: "Wow, you've got a lot of food, there."

Shopper: "There's a hurricane coming."

Me: "What are you going to do with all that frozen stuff if the power goes out?"

The shopper looked at me, looked at the contents of the cart, and then wheeled it right out of line.

Moral: Be ready, but think of what you're doing.

Donnie, DoJ and FBI Are Not Your Personal Goon Squads

Though he really wants them to be.
President* Donald Trump declared Friday the U.S. Justice Department should investigate and unmask the author of a bitingly critical New York Times opinion piece purportedly written by a member of an administration “resistance” movement straining to thwart his most dangerous impulses.

Trump cited “national security” as the reason for such an extraordinary probe, and he called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to get it going. He also said he was exploring bringing legal action against the newspaper over publication of the essay two days earlier.
Just because Trump bleats "national security" doesn't make it so. Fifty years from Nixon, by now, we all should know to be extremely skeptical when a president claims that national security for any sort of fuckery.

Trump is also whining about suing The NY Times. I'd be curious to know what sort of legal grounds he and Rudy the Blowhard can gin up.

Trump thinks it could be treason. It's not treason by any stretch of the imagination. Asking for and taking help from a hostile foreign power to win an election, that's a hell of a lot closer to treason. Only to a tinpot dictator would that be treason.

A sarcastic sign in the window of a Connecticut restaurant asking people not to let their dogs pee on the eatery's outside flower pot has earned the owner a $250 fine.
Dogs were peeing on the restaurant's planters. The owner put up a sarcastic sign, calling the planter a "pay-for pee flower pot."

One of the things that has sort of enraged me over the last week is reading wingnut blogs which have referred to the late Sen McCain as "Songbird".

That is nothing more than a right-wing insult, made by people who have not an iota of McCain's character and grit. It's an insult from people who are sitting in comfortable chairs and who largely have never suffered any serious physical discomfort in their lives. They certainly didn't spend five years in a Commie prison, being ill-fed, mistreated and tortured.

So McCain broke under torture. Everybody does. Unless you, personally, have experienced being tortured by North Vietnamese sadists, you have no right to judge McCain.

Therefore, if you're one of the legions of right-wing trolls who have called McCain "Songbird", you should be ashamed of yourselves.

And if you are not ashamed of yourself for that, then go fuck yourself, your horse, your parents, your ancestors back ten generations, and anyone who looks like you. For you are a disgusting lump of sentient protoplasm.

In conclusion: Go fuck yourself.
