Oh soooo scared of you.

Donald Trump's former chief strategist has vowed to go to war against the president's opponents, after being fired from his job at the White House.

teve Bannon, who has returned as head of ultra-conservative website Breitbart News, said he would fight for the agenda that won Mr Trump the election.

"I've got my hands back on my weapons," he said. "It's Bannon the Barbarian." (BBC)

I guess you were too barbaric for the Whitehouse eh? What, did they fire you for pissing in the plants? No, they fired you because you're confused and ineffective. Your message may have rallied a freakshow, clown-parade of piss-poor voters but it's not doing much to run this country.

Guess you didn't have what it takes eh?

So sure, go back and bitch on your website. I'm sure they'll be de-fucking-lighted to have you return. Wanna know the BEST thing about Breitbart? It's a honeypot for fucktards like you. So the rest of us don't have to read about your bullshit on legitimate ("Fake news to you") sites.

So here's the glove motherfucker: Dickhead Donald tRump is my opponent. Let's see what you got. Bring it Mr. Populist-Loser. Bring it.

Untenable

This really needs nothing else, it stands alone.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump's racially fraught comments about a deadly neo-Nazi rally have thrust into the open some Republicans' deeply held doubts about his competency and temperament, in an extraordinary public airing of worries and grievances about a sitting president by his own party.[..] Chip Lake, a Georgia-based GOP operative who did not vote for Trump in the general election, raised the prospect of the president leaving office before his term is up.

"It's impossible to see a scenario under which this is sustainable under a four-year period," Lake said. (AP:)

Incompetent. Incapable. Ignorant. The list goes on ad nauseum. And that's just for the letter "I".

Joe Love is a fucking dick-brained asshole. The kind of asshole who flies a Nazi flag in front of his home in North Carolina. Why? Because in his words "this is Nazi fucking America."

Oh really? Well I have news for you Joe. It FUCKING ISN'T. And I would love, love, LOVE to see you take that Nazi flag and head right over to Arlington Cemetery and walk around with it. I DARE you to take that Nazi flag and stand on the side of a Veterans parade. I CHALLENGE you, fuck-face, to walk the streets of Manhattan on Hanukkah with that flag, in Times Square or Rockefeller Center with that flag.

I also suggest you pay up on your Obamacare because you're going to need medical help getting that flag out of your colon.

So listen Joe Ironically-Misnamed-Love: flying a Nazi flag means you're a fucking Nazi. You're a racist. You're a proponent of evil, hate and as un-American as Al Qaeda. It means you're terrorist. And you should be treated like one.

Good luck pin head. Because you're going to need one fucking hell of a lot of it in the future. Congratulations on your fame. It's going to haunt you. Probably forever.

Dickhead isn't just a supporter to the angry-armed mob of white fascists, he's their god.

On Saturday, as Trump read slowly through a statement about the clashes that left dozens injured and one woman dead, he condemned hatred, bigotry and violence "on many sides." The president was silent when journalists asked whether he rejected the support of nationalist groups.

That silence was cheered by the white supremacist website Daily Stormer: "When asked to condemn, he just walked out of the room. Really, really good. God bless him." (AP)

There you go: The white right wants god to bless Dickhead Donald because he won't turn them away. These are the real Dickhead supporters, the ones who will follow and support him no matter what he says, does, did or will do.

Because he will let them hurt, threaten, abuse, menace and ultimately murder anyone who gets in their way. Or in Dickhead's way.

If Fucktard had a choice, THESE are the people he'd put in the senate, because fuck knows the House is already pretty damn close to these clowns.

Yes it's tRumpmerica, where being white, male and moneyed are the ONLY qualifications for citizenship. (Fine print: so long as you're Christian, not-sick, not educated, gun-loving and willing to look away from the pain and suffering of your fellow citizen, not to mention the world.)

tRump = hate. That's the bottom line.

So DOOM. Yes it's a year late, but still, better late than never.

Overall, for MOST of the gameplay I'm thrilled. Fun, fast, giber-fiffic. The art is good, the weapons are good, the monsters are what you'd expect them to be (good). The maps are complex, there's lots of jumping, sneaking and finding out hidden things, all good, good, good.

Then comes the moronic-goobah-style boss fights.

So imaging you're watching a spooky, sci-fi, thriller-style action movie. Like, say, Alien. As you near the climax, the bad guy comes out of his shell and it's Jigglypuff complete with karaoke mic clutch in it's candy-floss pink flipper. You have to bounce around and "kill" Jiggly with a marshmallow gun which does almost no damage. Buzz kill much?

While in actuality the bosses DO look like demons, the boss fights are stuff you'd expect from Super Mario, boring, repetitive, grindy, hard but-not-rewarding, dull. The boss fights are SO out of place after the fast-moving run, climb, jump, duck, shoot-shoot-shoot, switch weapons, shoot that it puts a big boot on your ass and shoves you right out of the moment into the a sweaty-guy, seat-twitching with anxiety, staring with dry eyes at the monitor with spit on my glasses from all the cursing.

If I wanted that shit, I'd watch tRump rallies.

My advice? It's not worth the effort. Play the game on whatever difficulty you like, turn the boss fights down to "baby-cakes" and move on. They're a waste of time and not worth the effort. And to the dev who INSISTED this is what gamers wanted? No. It's not what we wanted. You're a moron and your colleagues who said it was dumb and you're dumb? They were totally right.

To summarize: Doom: 90% of game = Awesome. 10% of boss fights? = Fail.

Dickhead's all "Oooh, I'm so surprised. Hugs anyone?"

President Donald Trump condemned "in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides".

"The hate and the division must stop right now," he told reporters, speaking in New Jersey, where he is on a working holiday. "We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation."[..]

Some observers also argue that Mr Trump's election to the White House re-energised the far right across the US. (BBC)

Who hated on immigrants? Who hated on women? Who hated on Hispanics, African-Americans and Muslims? Who made all these planks in his presidential campaign?

One guy. The guy who is now soooo astonished at the violence that came in his wake. YOU ARE the cause of all this hate mr. president, YOU'RE their hero. They may not have the money for people to write them speeches, to wear nice clothes or force-feed the press state-sponsored rhetoric, but they can do their best to imitate your worst.

And those are your "strong supporters" there Dickhead. Look in the mirror, their image is right there behind your big ugly mush. It's your party now fuckwad. Aren't you proud?

A. If you don't like abortion, don't have one
B. If it doesn't involve you mind your own goddamned fucking business
C. You don't judge others
D. Preventing women from getting the access they need isn't just hate, it's a crime

"One of the talking points we've heard lately is abortion should be considered health care," Elizabeth Graham, director of Texas Right to Life, told a Texas Senate committee. "Really, the definition of health care is to make a person well and to encourage health. The definition of a successful abortion is the complete death of the unborn child." (AP)

F. A Fetus is NOT a baby
G. There is NO SUCH THING as an "unborn baby", the baby exists when it is born, it's a fetus until then
H. Elizabeth Graham can go fuck herself, her attitude and her morals. Cunt.

And *I* don't think that anyone who is against old, white, asshole, conservative fucktards getting it up should pay for their prostrate exams or viagra either.

Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Texas lawmakers this week approved a bill that would require women to pay a separate health insurance premium to get coverage for elective abortions.

The bill will not allow exemptions for cases of fetal abnormalities, rape or incest, reported the Texas Tribune. It passed on a 95-51 vote Tuesday.

The bill's author, Republican state Rep. John Smithee, said abortion foes shouldn't contribute to abortion costs when they pay their health insurance bills to private health insurers.[..]

Democratic state Rep. Chris Turner said forcing women to pay extra to be covered in the case of a rape-induced pregnancy amounts to "rape insurance."

"Women don't plan to be raped. Parents don't plan for their children to be victims of incest," he said. "Asking a woman or a parent to foresee something like that and buy supplemental insurance to cover that horrific possibility is not only ridiculous, it is cruel."

Democratic State Rep. Donna Howard asked Smithee whether a 10-year-old girl who became pregnant after a rape should be forced to pay extra for health insurance, or go through with the pregnancy.

"We're discussing taking the life of the innocent little baby because of something the baby had nothing to do with," Smithee said, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Like that? Hey John Smithee (smithiee? smitey? schmucky? nah let's just go with fucking-assfaced-dickmunch-scumbag-womanhater), pardon let's use your NEW name: Hey Fucking-assfaced-dickmunch-scumbag-womanhater, you thought you were sooooo smart right? Because you're not denying women abortions, you're merely trying as hard as you can to make it as difficult as possible.

Also, an embryo isn't an "innocent little baby" shit head. It's an embryo. And women's bodies are THEIRS, not yours. Also you're going to lose that one in court because it's discriminatory to women to force them to carry an additional financial burden which only THEY have to have. Basically a womb-tax, for the crime of being able to get pregant.

So fuck you. Fuck your misogyny. Fuck your double standard. Fuck your intent to repress women and impose your own standard on what they can and can't do. Fuck you sideways with a rusty spoon which, hopefully, will get wedged, for putting further constraints on the poorest women who need the most help, not judgement, not forced pregnancy, not an end to their future, not a permanent memory of a CHOICE they are legally entitled to make.

Fuck you right to hell John fucking-assfaced-dickmunch-scumbag-womanhater Smithee. Oh, and have a nice day.

You know the old adage that starts with "If it ain't broke..."? Well in this case "fixing" has nothing to do with it because "if it IS broke Dickhead will only make it worse."

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Actions by the Trump administration are triggering double-digit premium increases on individual health insurance policies purchased by many people, according to a nonpartisan study.

The analysis released Thursday by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that mixed signals from President Donald Trump have created uncertainty "far outside the norm" and led insurers to seek higher premium increases for 2018 than would otherwise have been the case.

As much as Dickhead would like to keep blaming Hillary, keep blaming Obama, keep blaming the Dems the fact is that he had his shot at trying to be productive and completely wiffed. Frankly he didn't even try, that's an exaggeration, rather he merely expected that those he sees as serving him should have executed his wishes... just because.

At no point as Dickhead actually done a single lick of work. He thinks (misusing that term right there) that answering emails and barfing up tweets is work. The whole listening, discussing, weighing options, coordinating and making a well thought out decision based on logic and experts isn't even REMOTELY a figure in this administration. This is just "make it up as you go along" proving that indeed, anyone CAN be president but not anyone can be GOOD at it. Or even mediocre. Or even poor. Actually I'd settle for just a smidge over "fucking horrible" but even that's long gone.

Yes the Dickhead solution to healthcare? Unaffordable until you're dead. Then it's not a problem any more.

I'm Sorry, Are You Stupid?

Actually that was the wrong question. His stupidity isn't in question, rather it's the measure of the magnitude. I wonder if we can even count that high?

US President Donald Trump has thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin for ordering the departure of 755 staff from US diplomatic missions.

Speaking to reporters in New Jersey, he said he wanted to thank the Russian leader for saving the US money. (BBC)

Russia boots almost 800 diplomatic staff from the USSR and Idiot-n-Chief says "thank you". Really.

I guess the situation won't improve until someone else becomes President. Good to see we're on a consistent, downward spiral with one of the most powerful nations in the world. Putin must be laughing his ass off.

Other countries have their opinions too...

North Korea has become the latest critic of President Donald Trump's working vacation, accusing him of acting senile while "on the golf links."

Gen. Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the North's strategic rocket forces, made the insults via state media Thursday in response to Trump's "fire and fury" threats against North Korea.

Trump made the remarks during a meeting at his New Jersey golf resort.

Kim said Trump is "extremely getting on the nerves" of his soldiers by making comments that showed his "senility" again.

Kim says "sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason who is going senile." (BBC)

Aaaaand.... I have nothing to add. Thanks for coming! See y'all again soon!

Meet Ron. He just re-defined what an asshole is.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. Ron Johnson suggested that fellow Republican Sen. John McCain's brain tumor and the after-midnight timing of the vote were factors in the Arizona lawmaker's decisive vote against the GOP health care bill.[..] "He has a brain tumor right now. That vote occurred at 1:30 in the morning. Some of that might have factored in," Wisconsin's Johnson said.

Well the GOP certainly headed right from the high points of Roman-esque glory right into the post-Nero conflagration. It's hard to believe that ANYONE would be so fucking disrespectful to a colleague. It's simply breathtaking. I would even go so far as to say that McCain even dead and zombified has more character, courage and capability than R-tard Ron.

Hey Ron. You suck. And you're an asshole. Gratz!

I'm not usually in the position of defending one of the GOP. But there is one thing that I detest more than the right-wing money-money-money me-me-me ideology, and that's pure ignorance.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump scolded his own party's Senate leader on Wednesday for the crash of the Republican drive to repeal and rewrite the Obama health care law, using Twitter to demand of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, "Why not done?"

Trump fired back at the Kentucky Republican for telling a home-state audience this week that the president had "not been in this line of work before, and I think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process."[..]

McConnell's Kentucky remarks also drew a tweet from Dan Scavino Jr., the White House social media director.

"More excuses," wrote Scavino, one of Trump's more outspoken loyalists. "@SenateMajLdr must have needed another 4 years - in addition to the 7 years - to repeal and replace Obamacare."

Also joining the fray was Fox News Host Sean Hannity, a close Trump ally.

"@SenateMajLdr No Senator, YOU are a WEAK, SPINELESS leader who does not keep his word and you need to Retire!" Hannity tweeted.

First off, Hannity is a troll. He has no value. Anything spewed by him is already invalid. Moving on.

Scavino. Who? Doubt you'll be in YOUR job for very long. Social media director? What do you even direct? You certainly have no influence on what Dickhead pukes up on Twitter (think orange toupee hairballs). I'm not thinking you have much in the way of a political resume, which basically means you're there to echo whatever Dickhead has to say. Again, invalid. Moving on.

Now to Dickhead. He's a crybaby. When he doesn't get his way he pouts, sulks, taunts and then bullies. The fact that he's gone on the offensive with EVERYONE who has stood up for him means he's also damaged, mentally and socially. Unable to get along, unable to hold it together. He's also frighteningly ignorant, making shit up as he goes along without ANY interest in the actual impact it has on people's lives. So really, attacking someone with several orders of magnitude experience, history and credentials is not a surprise. Dickhead would rather send angry tweets at an alligator were it about to eat his face off rather than do the sensible thing and run away. So again, stupid. No surprise. Business as usual. All fucked up.

He's got AC and unlimited beverages served on a silver platter. For the rest of the nation? Not so much...

Trump, who has called climate change a "total con job" and "hoax" perpetrated to harm U.S. economic competitiveness, has spearheaded a wholesale scrapping of Obama-era initiatives that sought to reduce carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants and other sources. Last week, Trump's administration formally told the United Nations that the U.S. intends to pull out of the international climate accord signed in 2015, in which nearly 200 nations pledged to reduce carbon emissions. (AP)

On the other hand, the people who stand to lose the most and suffer the most are located in the parts of the nation that were solidly for this shitbag. So. Let's see how that works out for them and theirs huh?

Is a steaming cesspool of reality.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- It would take at least 25 years for Wisconsin taxpayers to break even on Gov. Scott Walker's incentives to lure Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn to the state, according to a fiscal analysis released Tuesday.

Dickhead was pretty quick to celebrate "his" role in bringing jobs back the US. Only the "deal" is a one-sided suckfest for the state who "won".

The nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau's analysis of the bill found that Walker's administration found the cost of the tax credits would exceed potential increased tax revenues by $1.04 billion at the end of fiscal year 2032-33. After that year, payments to Foxconn would end and increased tax collections would ring in at about $115 million annually. At that rate, the break-even point would come during the 2042-43 fiscal year.

The break-even point could come even later, though.

So really, for 3k new jobs the state winds up overcommitting and digging itself a hole to the tune of over a billion. If, of course, Foxconn bails before the break even period the state is extra-extra fucked with a side of 3000 new names on their unemployment rolls.

Yes this is the "art of the deal" folks: take a steaming pile of crap, put it in a box, spray paint it gold, celebrate yourself as being awesome and then run away. Because it's not your problem any more.

Guy thought: "Hey, it's Google, they won't boot me for posting my mind." Then guess what happened next?

A Google employee who wrote a controversial memo about workplace diversity has been fired, the BBC can confirm.

Entitled Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber, the paper argued that "the abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don't see equal representation of women in tech and leadership”. (BBC)

So you work, pardon me, USED to work, at Google. It's a hip, hop, happening place. Yeah it's a grind but you go in, do your four, five years, make your mark and your money and off you go into corporate lala land to coast through the rest of your career. Most people who I've heard work at Google seem to say this is the way it should work. It's hard, you sweat, but you're empowered. In this case maybe a bit TOO empowered.

Chances are Mr. Misogynist could have posted this and gotten away with maybe some nasty looks and never another date from a female coworker (assuming, possibly incorrectly, that said author is not a Member of the Club, but he probably wasn't because non-cis tend to be more sensitive about how others might interpret gender-bashing statements.)

But instead the story blew up. Suddenly, even though Google did NOT write or encourage such a post they were the ones paying the person who did write it. Aaaaand just as suddenly it WAS their problem. Google was showing up in association with a post saying "women can't code, aren't technical and why try to balance the scales?" Also there's the part where women make better employees for other stuff. Lame stuff. Like with pillows, candles and kittens or something.

So, to make their position eminently clear, after saying this DIDN'T represent their views and whatnot they shitcanned his ass. On the one hand sure, the guy was just expressing his particular viewpoint. Maybe he could also have mentioned he voted for tRump. Maybe he could have said he doesn't think Native Americans were mistreated or that the KKK is just "celebrating white people". All or none of those things could have gotten him canned. But, what did get him canned was a) his lack of self preservation for airing his personal views and b) having the bad luck to get his personal views elevated to prime time.

In essence, he didn't keep his stupid yap shut and damaged the perception of the company that supported him.

I'm sure, however, that he'll find a home. There's lots of conservtards out there (Faux being a prime example) with big organizations who would LOVE to hear about how Google mistreated him just for speaking his mind and also any dirt they could find about Google. It will be interesting to see how far this guy's lack of self preservation takes him.

One thing for sure, it won't take him to a new job in California probably, but I hear Texas has some growth in development. And Utah too.

The author wrote: "We need to stop assuming that gender gaps imply sexism."

Sure I'll buy that. But I guess the data shows that we don't need to assume that people who open their big mouth won't be putting their big foot in it either. That's been proven.

And most, if not all, of the jihadi mentality. The problem is that this example is just a singular instance of what could solve much of islam's woes and mis-perceptions. The bigger problem is that even "moderate" muslims are so stagnant that they can't open up to where their religion COULD go, instead of lamenting what it currently is.

But the mosque is not unusual because of its location. Rather, because of the people who come here. At Berlin's newest mosque, men and women pray together, women are allowed to lead Friday prayers, and gay, lesbian and transgender people are welcome.

"Our mosque is open for everybody," says mosque founder Seyran Ates, a German Turkish-born lawyer and women's rights activist.

"And we mean that really seriously: everybody, every lifestyle. We are not God. We don't decide who's a good or a bad Muslim. Anybody can come through this door - whether you are heterosexual or homosexual, we don't care, it's not our right to ask." (BBC)

This could be the future that saves islam. But that's unlikely. Already the people mentioned in this article are being intimidated, threatened by zealots who claim their view is the only view and every other person, holding every other view is mortally wrong.

What kind of religion murders people as a way of "spreading" itself?

Religion needs worshipers. Killing people, your own or others is NOT a recipe for success. There's no chance that islam will take over the world by threats and intimidation. There's a pretty damn good chance that it will be able to hold its own by embracing first-world principles of equality and respect.

Where there is one example, perhaps someday there can be two. Who knows, anything is possible... gods willing.
