    It's really just about the babies and not at all about control and terrorizing women.

    In scenes reminiscent of the ‘morality police’ found in groups like the Taliban, a man in Tucson, Arizona has taken it upon himself to ‘reeducate’ women who visit the local Planned Parenthood office. The vigilante pro-lifer, identified as Jordan Hart, has openly admitted to taking license plate photos of people entering the facility, so he can track them down to their homes to bring ‘awareness and truth’ about abortion.

Once non-whites started showing up in any significant numbers, Congress clamped down on that right quick.

    The very nature of how the USA is set up requires a constant flow of immigrants. Each wave of immigrants starts off doing the undesirable low-paying work, but their children inevitably refuse to do so and aspire to greater social status, so that new workers must be brought in from further afield. This is a product of our collective delusion that an entire country of 300+ million people can somehow all simultaneously live comfortable middle class lifestyles, and that these lifestyles are somehow sustained by our own hard work and ingenuity rather than relying on the exploitation of billions, some at home and others abroad. Once we can all admit that we are full of shit about that, then we can start talking about limiting immigration.
    That's a lot of truth right there.

    If Satan himself decided to run for President he'd preach the anti-abortion rhetoric and the Christian Right would line up to vote for him.

    I've always thought that the only difference between far right Christians and radical Muslims like the Taliban and ISIS are liberal laws that protect citizens.

    We should do our very best to keep a situation where violently dismantling the government is necessary from ever happening in the first place.

    That's probably never going to happen, people these days have way too much to lose these days to even think about attempting a violent revolution. Even those AR-toting edgelords wouldn't dream of giving up their comfortable middle class existence to fight against some imagined threat of tyranny, if anyone still remembers when the Bundy militia took over that building in Oregon they started sending out requests for care packages right away, and as if the situation wasn't ludicrous enough, the postal service was actually delivering them.

    What's much more likely is that the erratic governance of the current administration will slowly erode American credibility overseas, sapping our power and influence and thus diminishing our ability to continue extracting the resources that we depend on to sustain our lifestyle. But the degradation will be slow enough that we won't really notice it until it's too late to do anything about it, and by that point a violent revolution won't change anything anyway.

    Did Gun ‘Silencer’ Make A Difference In Virginia Beach Carnage?

    It could at least partially explain why survivors of the shooting said they were caught off guard and initially puzzled by what was happening. And that figures to give gun crazed nutbags bad ideas for future bloodbaths. Disturbing.

    ‘It Feels Like We Are Prisoners’: Migrant Children Describe Trauma At Florida Detention Center

    Lawyers say the facility violates child welfare standards, and that no minor should be held at Homestead for more than 20 days. And that could well give birth to the next generation of rapists and killers Trump warned his easily frightened base about.

    It's a pipe dream to expect Facebook to self-regulate, they need to be broken up now before they become too big to take down. One of the few points of bipartisan agreement these days is that social media is cancer and needs to be controlled, why exactly are we still hoping that they police themselves?

    In 2015, 2016, 2017, as well as 2018, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" published profiles of U.S. Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma, a former pastor who has referred to same sex marriage as “an attack upon the family” while campaigning for office, thinks being gay is a choice, refers to climate change a myth, spoke at length about his frustration of endangered birds receiving more protection from the government than fetuses, blamed the Sandy Hook Massacre on “welfare moms overmedicating their kids to get more benefits” and n June of 2016 against a measure that would have made it illegal for firearms transfers to people who were suspected terrorists on the “no fly list”. His Christian principles lead him to believe migrant children should be thrown out of the country because in the Bible, being kind to strangers doesn’t specify that they should be citizens of the country you live in. Seriously, this guy is such a fanatic when he was asked about the national debt, his solution was to pray that it gets better. He currently is pushing for “religious freedom” legislation because he defines no being allowed to discriminate against gay people as “being targeted for his faith”, claiming they are the real victims in a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” situation. Lankford’s also prolifically absent in Congress when it comes time to vote, as he missed almost 10% of them from his final term serving in the House. Near the end of our 2015 entry about Lankford, we noted he had found himself amongst the #47Traitors, for writing a letter to the leaders of Iran trying to undermine the peace treaty that the Obama administration had arranged with them, and was campaigning to push for national “religious freedom” laws to allow for the discrimination of LGBT citizens and prevent them from having equal rights based on the supposed faith of who was discriminating against them. He has also voted to defund Planned Parenthood, voted to maintain the gun rights of people on the no-fly list so they could procure firearms for mass shootings, voted to try and block Syrian refugees from being resettled in the United States, and refused to consider Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court because “he isn’t conservative enough”, waiting a year to vote for Neil Gorsuch.

    Since we last updated our annual look at James Lankford, he has made several troubling votes, including continuing to vote for every Trump administration nominee, no matter how unqualified or utterly appalling (including torture maven Gina Haspel to be the head of the COA), he voted against disaster relief funding for victims of Hurricane Harvey back in October of 2017, and in December of 2017, he voted for the big GOP Tax Scam.

    For all that party line bulls***, does Sen. Lankford get any love from the White House. HA! No. Trump doesn’t even know his name, he calls him “Tom. And yet… he still blindly supports him, by doing things like vote for Donald Trump’s supposed “national emergency” on the U.S./Mexico border.

    We’ll continue to monitor Sen. Lankford’s activities, because he is, quite frankly, a partisan twit.
