    LOL, Boston scared the shit out of them.

    ACT for America is canceling its America First Rallies, previously scheduled for Saturday, September 9, “out of an abundance of caution” due “to the recent violence in America and in Europe.” The national security organization will instead replace the 67 rallies organized across 36 states with an online “Day of ACTion.”

    In a press release, exclusively given to Breitbart News, event organizers say the reason for making the difficult decision “is to contribute to the de-escalation of rising tension and violence in America while pursuing the organization’s goal of a safe and secure America.”

    "ACT for America is deeply saddened that in today’s divisive climate, citizens cannot peacefully express their opinion without risk of physical harm from terror groups domestic and international.

    In recent weeks, extremist and radical organizations in the United States and abroad have overrun peaceful events in order to advance their own agendas, and in many cases, violence has been the result. Given the security issues of organizing public events, the responsible decision is to deny this opportunity to Neo-Nazis, Antifa, the KKK, and ISIS inspired individuals and groups. ACT for America’s membership is patriotic citizens whose only goal is to celebrate America’s values and peacefully express their views regarding national security."
    Protests are great.

    Massachusetts, despite being a blue state, is very self-aware when it comes to race and diversity.

    The city won't even let a Chick-fil-a open downtown.

    Conversely, the constitution and free speech is also heavily supported which is why groups like this get permits.

    Absolutely nobody should be remotely surprised that he thinks this:

    Quote Quoting Donald Trump
    it’s just been announced that a second brand-new coal mine where they’re going to take out clean coal — meaning they’re taking out coal, they’re going to clean it — is opening in the state of Pennsylvania.”

    I always imagine that 15,000 people would look like more, especially if they were all crammed into a venue that only holds 5,000.

    So apparently James Clapper just found out who Donald Trump was Tuesday evening.
    Just because...

    Samui Song (Pen-ek Ratanaruang, 2017) / *

    Disappointing to hear this of Whedon's character, but honestly can't find it very surprising.

    I find the loudest of the male allies are often the ones hiding something, similar to how many gay-hating politicians end up involved in scandals with Grinder or gay prostitutes.

    I've personally known a few guys who were very vocal allies especially on social media, and it eventually came out that they were using it as a tactic to gain female friends in hopes of getting laid.

    Which is so messed up on so many levels I don't even know where to begin.

    When a guy is constantly spouting about feminism and showing everyone around him how woke he is, it's a little nauseating.

    Haha! That Nazi from that Vice video (who's being held right now for assault) was featured on an old Colbert Report.

    I'm ashamed he's from New England. Though I was up North last weekend (near the Canadian border) and I was blown away how many racists are up there. Live Free or Die I guess.

    Oh shit, cool. Catching up on my podcasts and didn't even realize my friend (one of the people I was worried about earlier in this thread because he was in Charlottesville) was interviewed on last week's episode Politically Re-active. He's super, super knowledgeable about American white supremacist groups, so if you want a primer on what that movement is all about, I recommend listening to him in the "Charlottesville: Why did this happen and how do we move forward?" episode listed third on here (he's the first guest):

    W. Kamau Bell says he sounds like Carlton from Fresh Prince which made me lol. Gonna have to rib him about that when I see him.

    Which makes it really hard for someone like me, who genuinely cares about women.

    Precious, sweet women.

    The following all just happened to occur as Harvey approaches landfall.

    a) Trump makes official the transgender military ban.

    b) Trump pardons Joe Arpaio.

    c) Trump staffer Sebastian Gorka resigns.

    Lifting limits on militarizing police. Because why would he not?

    The running joke that he's just dedicated to undoing literally everything Obama fought for and put in place is no longer a joke. He's exactly that stupid, uncreative and malicious.

    They describe much of the gear as “defensive in nature” intended to protect officers from danger.
    Oh. fuck. you.

    Last week he issued an executive order to cancel out the Obama administration's order that public infrastructure needs to survive rising water in flood-prone regions.

    The timing is especially incredible.

    This is the kind of shit that's legitimately frightening to me. I don't think Trump consciously wants to be a dictator. I just think that he's too stupid, incurious, boastful, and enamored of "tough men" for any other option to work. Incidental despotism? Is that a thing? If it is, this is what it looks like.

    Eh, I pretty much think that with this edict, along with his pardoning of Arpaio, as well as his Transgender Ban announcement a few days ago, that he's throwing meat to his last remaining hotbed of support - the fringe nut-job right. Pretty much everybody else has left him; he can't afford to lose these guys too.

    Between last night's WaPo story, and today's NYT story, this whole Russia FAKENEWS is getting good!

    “Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it,” Mr. Sater wrote in an email. “I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.”

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/28/u...lix-sater.html

    Sater has flipped.

    BOOM!

    Cohen denied NYT story, so WaPo followed up with the punch.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/ampht...c37_story.html

    So far, the dossier has been more true than not...like way more true.

    President Trump on Monday said he announced his pardon of former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio as Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas because he “assumed the ratings would be far higher.”

    “In the middle of a hurricane, even though it was a Friday evening, I assumed the ratings would be far higher than they would be normally,” Trump said during a press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö. “You know, the hurricane was just starting.”
    What a fucking psychopath. Jesus christ, I wish him a painful death.

    Big Rumor time: NYAG is investigating the Trump Modeling Agency for human trafficking, and there are tapes implicating Trump and close associates. These European arrests are related.

    https://www.europol.europa.eu/newsro...l-exploitation
    Claude Taylor tweeted fake details of criminal inquiries into Trump that were invented by a source whose claim to work for the New York attorney general was not checked, according to emails seen by the Guardian. The allegations were endorsed as authentic and retweeted by his co-writer Louise Mensch.

    The source’s false tips included an allegation, which has been aggressively circulated by Mensch and Taylor, that Trump’s inactive fashion model agency is under investigation by New York authorities for possible sex trafficking.

    The hoaxer, who fed the information to Taylor by email, said she acted out of frustration over the “dissemination of fake news” by Taylor and Mensch. Their false stories about Trump have included a claim that he was already being replaced as president by Senator Orrin Hatch in a process kept secret from the American public.
