celebrity ton of s**t

This truly delicious flip perfectly defines the empty argument so beloved of people who earn themselves a fortune almost solely via a make-believe world of fictional imagery and made-up words.
Their argument is totally without form and void, so it’s usable by anyone with any agenda.
An-y-one (as shown).

Does this podium make me look short?

H> wants man-size and woman-size podiumsa?
Not sure if this qualifies as affirmative-action politics or Procrustean politics.

Hillary Clinton …, who is 5-foot-4, has apparently enlisted the help of a raised podium for the first presidential debate against Donald Trump, who is 6-foot-3, Monday night, photos of the two podiums show. [O]ne of the two podiums inside the debate hall … is larger than the other. It is believed that the larger one was built at Clinton’s request to make her appear taller than she is.

“Clinton is 5’4″ and Trump 6’2″ and her team wanted the podium modified or a box added so she won’t look short next to Trump,” ….

“One is clearly larger … than the other,” …. Photos … appear to show two podiums of two different sizes. [story]

Why not just whip ‘em out an’ see whose is bigger?

Aaand they won’t let her sit during the debate

Trump doesn’t have a hair on his @ss if he doesn’t bring out a box of his own to stand on.
It’s the kind of psywar stuff he advocates during business negotiations.

UPDATE: Oh, and another ideer, tippytoes.

Mebbe he should just go over and help her clamber up onto her box.
A gentleman would do that… and suppress his smirk while doing so.

Next debate, make ‘em swap podiums at half-time.
(What? Nah, Hillary always wins coin-tosses. Alllways.)

In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.

“Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?‘” the report says. “Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email.”
[for her collection?… or …]

Yes. They said that Obobo — sitting POTUS Obobo — was emailing his sitting SecState using a fake name.

I’ll give ya a minute to get past all that that implies . . .

Now: Friday Nite Follies demands we come up with the fake name Obobo was using.
[since the admittedly way-kewl Carlos Danger was already taken…]

definitions, pee-pole!!

…At an event in New York City called “Building Progressive, Inclusive Cities,” terror attack are “part and parcel of life in a big city,” [London mayor, Sadiq] Khan told the Evening Standard just hours after police foiled multiple terror attacks in New Jersey and New York.

…In other words, terrorism is the new normal.

Your “Progressive, Inclusive” Utopia is a real winner if it pisses people off so badly that
terror attacks must be viewed as “part and parcel of life in a big city.”

Well done, that.


Protesters massed on Charlotte’s streets for a third night Thursday in the latest sign of mounting pressure for police to release video that could resolve wildly different accounts of the shooting of a black man.

Demonstrators chanted “release the tape” and “we want the tape” while briefly blocking an intersection near Bank of America headquarters

The first fresco displays a wide array of occult symbols, some directly referring to Freemasonry. This is quite astonishing as the painting is in the lobby of the headquarters of the United States’ most predominant bank and not in a Masonic lodge … but perhaps there is some overlap. Those who are “in the know” and initiated to the Mysteries are those who are qualified to accomplishing the planning process, which in this painting seem to be the men in suits, whose ties match the red and white checker-board floor, and who make plans for the future generation, represented by the blond Masonic boy.

In the second fresco, civil unrest, riots, protests and repression are all taking place. Historically, the masses only usually go into an outright revolt when their living conditions deteriorate significantly or when hugely unpopular policies get adopted. Does this piece refer to the loss of civil liberties and the rise of a police state? There is also a metaphysical aspect to the image, represented by the spinning naked bodies that appear as the sun, implying that the period turmoil is also happening on a cosmic level.

The last fresco gives a sense of “mission accomplished”, with the dominant figure surveying the work, while also conveying the message that “the work is never totally done” as labourers are still hard at work in the underground. This is reminiscent of the movie Metropolis, where a class of workers silently slave away underground to sustain the elite’s utopia. I also can’t help but being reminded of the 33 Chilean miners while looking at those workers …

Hundreds of National Guard troops and police reinforcements converged on Charlotte, mobilized to prevent a third night of violent protests

like nails on a chalkboard

You worthless bumpkins have failed her again,
and she is not amused (or playin’ with a full deck, apparently).

That look…
We’ve seen it before
Cultural ref

Hands up, don’t kick!

It’s not even “revenge” — the guy is innocent
It’s brutal, feral, racialist thuggery

D’oh !

Trevor Noah, the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, accidentally destroyed the case for gun control during his show [when] he made fun of a Minnesota man fed up with Islamic terrorism. The target of Noah’s ire was an ice cream shop owner in a small town southeast of St. Cloud, Minnesota — the site of a mass stabbing at a mall last weekend — who put up a sign outside of his restaurant that read, “Muslims Get Out.”

You know what’s also strange is this man genuinely thought people who go around blowing people up would be stopped by a sign? You realize you’re talking to terrorists, not vampires. They don’t need to be invited in, alright? Or maybe he’s onto something, because if you think about it, we’ve never tried that. We’ve never actually tried to repel terrorists with signs. Yeah, maybe that’s all the airports need is a sign that says “No Terrorists,” yes? Yeah, and then guys are going to be walking going, “Oh, I was going to blow up the airport, but the rules are rules and they said I can’t come in. They said I can’t. They said I can’t come in.” [story]

Been tryin’ t’ tellll you guys…
(What? Well, no, I expect that logical extension is lost on ‘im.)
