From American Prince: A Memoir :
Janet' unhappiness wasn’t due solely to the movie. Janet’s friend Barbara Rush was in the movie with us, and one day Barbara came up to me and asked, “Are you and Janet doing all right?” I had a feeling Janet had told Barbara we weren’t, and that Barbara had come to me to confirm it. I just said, “Janet’s not feeling well.” When the movie ended and Janet and I went home, I tried harder to behave in a way that didn’t anger her, and she made the same effort for me. We settled into a functional but unromantic marriage, the kind of life that was less unusual in Hollywood than you might think.
We threw huge parties at our big, beautiful house on Summit Drive. Janet invited the Debbie Reynolds crowd, and friends such as Danny Kaye. Danny was a major talent. He was born in Brooklyn... To my way of thinking, Danny was a very mean and bitter man, and most everybody seemed to agree with me. When we first met, he would belittle me all the time. He once asked me, “Where did you learn how to fence—the Bronx?” Another time he said to me, “How do you act in those high heels?” I said, “I don’t wear high heels.” Then I took a step closer to him, looked in his eyes, and smiled while I said, “Fuck you, Danny.”
I don’t know why Danny had it in for me. Maybe it was because we both came from New York. Maybe it was because we were both Jewish, and he struggled with that in himself. Or it might have been some complicated sexual feeling.
It was widely rumored that Danny went with both men and women. One of the people Danny was believed to have had a relationship with was Sir Laurence Olivier. There had always been rumors about Larry’s sexuality, but he was nothing like Danny.
Live and let live. I don’t look down on gays; it’s just not my thing. George Cukor, one of the great directors, was part of the Hollywood gay crowd. George would throw a big, formal dinner party at his house. Then, after the party was over, George and his friends would go cruise Sunset Boulevard, looking for young men; they called them “after-dinner mints.” To each his own.

Trump is going to create task forces for every federal agency that will research burdensome regulations and undo the ones they deem unneeded. He signed this legislation with CEO's from Dow Chemical, Lockheed, and U.S Steel Corp standing behind him.
Basically, this means these large corporations will be able to decide which regulations are too costly for their businesses, and Trump will do away with them. Say goodbye to clean water and our environment. We are officially fucked!

I recently watched this documentary and found several threads here about Diane Schuler but I can't seem to find any updates as of 2013?
I know everyone is suing everyone, the Hances had a baby and there were two books written by family members of those killed.
Have there been any recent updates with the Schuler family? What is Daniel Schuler up to these days and his closet-smoker sister in law? Have the Hances had to give any testimony through the various lawsuits about what happened on that day?
Also, did any of her coworkers come forward to say what she was like to work with and if she showed any signs of problem drinking (calling out often, making up excuses to stay home, etc)? It was strange that they featured her four high school friends and one person who seemed just a neighbor on the documentary but no real intimates or who knew her in her daily life.

A Facebook group is organizing a protest on Sunday at the sign.

After placing fourth at state, Geick told Pioneer Press that the team culture set by head coach Shane Cook was a vital part of his success at Stevenson.
"You wrestle for yourself at this time of the season, but it's always about the bond between teammates and your friends," Geick said. "And Coach is behind all of it."

Toward the end of last month’s Golden Globes ceremony, the producer of the nominated drama “Moonlight” made a surprise onstage appearance: Brad Pitt.
Before he could begin his remarks, the crowd burst into loud, sustained applause. More than a few of his peers gave him a standing ovation. He looked trim, tan, better than he had in years, and even he seemed taken aback by the level of support expressed that night.
No matter how the Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie divorce shakes out, one thing’s clear: Pitt wins custody of Hollywood.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way, at least according to Jolie’s post-split strategy. Hours after she blindsided Pitt with her divorce filing last September, rapid-fire leaks full of intimate, sordid details surfaced on TMZ: Jolie filed for divorce “for the health of the family.” She had the FBI and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services investigate Pitt — who she had publicly, profusely said was a wonderful father — on charges of child abuse. Jolie filed for sole custody of their six children while reports somehow surfaced that Pitt had a terrible temper and issues with drugs and alcohol. Then came word that Pitt would be allowed only limited, supervised visits with those children who even wanted to see him.
It was a remarkable data dump for a couple who had spent 12 years together on lockdown, preserving their ostensibly perfect Brangelina brand: the most glamorous, enviable couple in Hollywood since Liz and Dick.
Within days, Pitt went into hiding. Save for one pointed court filing in December, in which his team stated that Jolie was placing “her own interests above those of the minor children” and “apparently has no self-regulating mechanism to preclude sensitive information from being placed in the public record,” Pitt remained silent.
Clearly, Jolie must have believed she was winning public opinion. After all, she was the rare megastar without a publicist, and she had masterfully reinvented herself multiple times: She had gone from wanton, drug-using, incest-teasing, vial-of-blood-wearing starlet to valiant single mom to selfless humanitarian to devoted, domesticated wife. She wrote and directed movies, traveled to refugee camps, worked for the UN, was made an honorary dame by the Queen of England. Her soon-to-be ex-husband was in retreat.
What couldn’t Angelina Jolie do?
Jolie apparently realized there was, in fact, one thing even she couldn’t do: Make people in Hollywood hate Brad Pitt.
After Pitt’s triumphant appearance at the Globes, Jolie apparently realized there was, in fact, one thing even she couldn’t do: Make people in Hollywood hate Brad Pitt. The subtext was even worse: They tolerated her only because of him.
Less than 24 hours after Pitt’s re-emergence, she issued a joint statement with him that read, in part, that they were “committed to act as a united front” and that they were hiring a private judge to keep everything confidential. Most interestingly, Page Six reported last week that Jolie had begun reaching out to top Hollywood publicists for help in rehabbing her image.
So far, no one’s interested.
Jolie’s isolation from her peers and the show-business community at large has often been attributed to her controversial manager, Geyer Kosinski. His reputation in Hollywood is toxic: In 2010, Deadline reported that he was “known to be very controlling, very secretive, very involved with his clients’ lives.” He’s also known as “Geyer the Liar,” and in 2013 Jolie fired him after he bungled the deal that would have had her star in “Gravity,” the outer-space thriller that won seven Oscars and a Best Actress nomination for Sandra Bullock.
Yet just after Jolie filed for divorce, Kosinski was back in her inner circle, advising her and giving statements to the media on her behalf.
“Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest of taking care of her family,” Kosinski told E! News at the time.
It was a line that few were buying.

Trouble is brewing over Grace Hightower’s coffee company. We’re told that her husband, Robert De Niro — who is a major investor in the firm — is steamed because the 5-year-old Grace Hightower & Coffees of Rwanda brand is turning into a money pit.
We’re told that Hightower has frustrated business associates — as well as the legendary actor — by dithering over simple decisions, and “changing her mind about how to run the business depending on who she spoke to last.”
A source tells us that, in a moment of frustration, De Niro boiled over while bickering with Hightower in public at a Manhattan bar, telling her, “I wouldn’t have to keep making s - - tty movies if you didn’t spend all my money!”
In recent years, comedians such as Joel McHale have teased De Niro over his choice of roles, some of which — such as those in “Dirty Grandpa,” “Grudge Match” and “The Intern” — may not live up to his status as the multi-Oscar-winning actor from “Raging Bull,” “Taxi Driver” and “The Godfather.”
Meanwhile, defenders of Hightower point to a slew of establishments that carry her coffee, including the Ace Hotel, the Breslin, Salvation Burger, Salvation Taco, White Gold, the Williamsburg Hotel and De Niro’s raft of hotels and restaurants, including the Greenwich Hotel and the Nobu chain.
The company, which sources its fair trade beans in Rwanda, has parted ways with its biggest distributor, Whole Foods.
Meanwhile, the coffee giant Illy is a major sponsor of De Niro’s Tribeca Film Festival.
A rep said, “Your story is based on something that never happened from a source who has an ax to grind.”

‘Dynasty’ Reboot in the Works at CW
September 30, 2016 | 03:20PM PT
The CW is developing a reboot of “Dynasty,” Variety has confirmed. The project, which is in script development, hails from CBS Television Studios in association with Fake Empire and executive producers and writers Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Sallie Patrick.
Esther Shapiro and Richard Shapiro, creators of the original “Dynasty,” are also serving as executive producers.
The new series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two female characters locked in conflict — Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington, and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal, a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.
Produced by Aaron Spelling, the original “Dynasty” aired on ABC from 1981 to 1989, lasting 220 episodes. It starred Joan Collins, Linda Evans and John Forsythe.

The father of an Indian man who was shot and injured in a Kansas City bar believes the United States isn’t a safe place after the election of President Donald Trump, and has said parents should not send their children to the country.
Madasani Alok Reddy, 32, was recovering from his wounds after being shot by a former US Navy veteran, an attack eyewitnesses said could be racially motivated. Alok’s 32-year-old friend, Srinivas Kuchibhotla, was killed in the Austins Bar and Grill in Olathe.
Madasani Jaganmohan Reddy, who lives in Chaitanyapuri in Hyderabad, said he had urged his son, Alok, to quit his job and return home.
“The situation seems to be pretty bad after Trump took over as the US President. I appeal to all the parents in India not to send their children to the US in the present circumstances,” he said.
The attack came at a time when apprehensions over religious and ethnic divide have gripped the US after the election victory of Trump, whose campaign rhetoric has targeted minorities.
Reddy said Alok and Srinivas were in the suburban bar to watch a basketball match on a giant TV screen on Wednesday night when they were attacked.
“The accused was already there when my son and (Srinivas) Kuchibhotla entered the restaurant,” Reddy said about Adam Purinton, who has been charged with murder and reportedly shouted “get out of my country” after the shooting.
“He picked up an argument with them and asked them why they were staying in the US illegally. They tried to tell him that they had done their MS (master’s degree) in Kansas in 2006 and had been staying there with valid work permits.”
“When the American continued to shout at them, they complained to the restaurant manager, who sent him out. But he returned soon and started firing at them, resulting in the killing of Kuchibhotla.”
For Kuchibhotla’s 70-year-old father, K Madhusudhana Sastry, a retired scientist from Indian Drugs and Pharmaceuticals Limited, the shooting has come as a big blow.
“Ever since we received the news last evening about the death of his son in the shootout in the US, he has been in a state of shock and is not speaking to anyone,” said Rentachintala Sastry, a cousin of Kuchibhotla.
Grief struck their residence at Plot No. 1, Phase 30, Pranay Bounty layout at Bachupalli on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Kuchibhotla’s mother, Parvata Vardhini, was crying inconsolably and no family member was in a position to speak to the media.
“Srinivas is the second of three sons of Madhusudhan uncle. The other sons are working here. It is a happy family and nobody has ever expected that such a tragedy would strike them,” Sastry said.
Srinivas was married without children.
Sastry said many of their relatives were in the US, and all of them were worried now. “We have to be very careful in talking to the Americans. That’s all we can say,” he said.
Reddy said it appeared that the Americans were given the impression that a large number of Indians were staying in the US with illegal work permits.
Sagar, a spokesperson of the Telugu Association in Texas, told Hindustan Times that the incident triggered panic among Indians, particularly Telugus, in the US.
“We have to be extremely careful while dealing with the US and should not enter into any argument,” he said.

It's my favorite musical and for sentimental reasons - I saw it when I was 8 years old at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre in Lincoln Center in 1994. Audra McDonald gave a glorious performance (and won her first Tony). An old lady in a huge fur coat saw me and said, "My my what is a little boy doing at a show like this?" She must have known I was "different" because she gave my mother a knowing smile as I sang to her "Mister Snow" with such queeny enthusiasm... She gave me her front row seats and I watched it all unfold in a state of pure delight... It was magical. Simply magical - for a 8 yr old small town boy to see such a spectacle.... I had been going through a huge Broadway phase at the time.
Anyway, the score is - especially on that 1994 Broadway revival CD - simply sublime. It was, I read somewhere, R&H's favorite show personally.
I almost don't want them to revive it because I thought the 1994 version was so beautiful, but if they did I think they need to find a powerhouse Billy. Surprisingly no man that has ever played that part - and its one of the best male leads in musical theatre - ever won a Tony Award. If Paolo Szot can win a Tony for Emile, then they've got to find a Billy Bigelow that can just blow the roof off the place.

The prestigious Travel Weekly magazine (as close to an “official” travel publication as they come) has set the decline in foreign tourism at 6.8%. On the web, flight searches for trips heading to the U.S. out of all international locations was recently down by 17%.
A drop of that magnitude, if continued, would reduce the value of foreign travel within the U.S. by billions of dollars. And the number of jobs supported by foreign tourists and their expenditures in the United States—and thus lost—would easily exceed hundreds of thousands of workers in hotels, restaurants, transportation, stores, tour operations, travel agencies, and the like.
While, earlier in the year, the Administration had boasted of saving 800 jobs in the Carrier Corporation, the drop-off in employment resulting from the travel ban would eclipse that figure.
According to the Global Business Travel Association, in only a single week following announcement of the ban against certain foreign tourists, the activity of business travel declined by nearly $185 million.
Other observers, including local tourist offices, have reached similar conclusions. In referring to New York City’s $60 billion tourist industry alone, the head of the city’s tourist effort complained that his agency’s effort to portray the United States as a welcoming destination to foreign citizens “was all in jeopardy.” Several other tourist officials have made like statements.

Bill Maher says his controversial interview with Milo Yiannopoulos set into motion the right-wing journalist's recent downfall, which includes the loss of his book deal and his resignation from Breitbart News.
Last week, Maher came under fire for booking Yiannopoulos on his HBO political talk show, "Real Time." The journalist Jeremy Scahill, a frequent "Real Time" guest and founder of The Intercept, canceled his appearance on the same episode in protest.
"What I think people saw was an emotionally needy Ann Coulter wannabe trying to make a buck off of the left's propensity for outrage," Maher told The New York Times on Tuesday of his interview with Yiannopoulos.
"And by the end of the weekend, by dinnertime Monday, he's dropped as a speaker at CPAC," he continued, referring to the Conservative Political Action Conference. "Then he's dropped by Breitbart, and his book deal falls through. As I say, sunlight is the best disinfectant. You're welcome."
Over the weekend, a 2016 interview with Yiannopoulos resurfaced and sparked new outrage. In it, he made comments appearing to condone sexual relations "between younger boys and older men." The fallout included CPAC revoking his invitation to speak at the conference, the publisher Simon & Schuster pulling out of a planned book deal, and Yiannopoulos resigning as a senior editor at Breitbart.
Though Maher took credit for Yiannopoulos' fall from grace, he told The Times that he didn't intend to ruin his guest — no matter how much he disagrees with Yiannopoulos' opinions.
"I wasn't trying to get him removed from society," the host said. "I'm somebody who, many times, people have tried to make go away. ... It just rubs me the wrong way when somebody says, 'I don't like what this person is saying — he should go away.'"
As for critiques that he went too easy on the controversial guest, Maher said: "It's not my job to hold him accountable to everything he's ever said or done. I had eight minutes with him on the show itself. Sorry I don't have time to go over everything everybody else would want to do. We just had time to sort of start a discussion of the broad view of who he is."

From Elia Kazan: A Life' book
"It was at Charlie’s that I heard that Johnny Hyde had died a few weeks before. Charlie said that Johnny’s girl was now on the loose, and she was a knockout. All girls were more attractive to these men before they made it with them. He hadn’t succeeded in getting into her yet, he said, but he would: “It shouldn’t be a problem.” The men around Charlie considered Marilyn Monroe a kid to pass around and someone now available.
They said even Johnny Hyde had referred to her as a “chump.” But apparently she’d been true to Johnny and was now completely broken up by his death. The tribal report had been confirmed: No one had scored there yet. She hadn’t even gone out with anyone, which puzzled these men. Lasting grief was not a normal emotion in that community. I was alone nights now and would be for some weeks, so I wondered if I shouldn’t look the girl up; less lechery than curiosity. She’d sat at Johnny Hyde’s side, the night when I’d seen her, like a frozen image. Why had she been so devoted to him? What was the story there?
One afternoon I was summoned by Darryl; ..... When that was done, the assistant director called for the actors, and I heard her name: “Marilyn!” Then, in a tone less patient: “Marilyn!” No response. “That girl drives me nuts,” Harmon said. “What’s the matter with her?” I asked. “She can’t stop crying. All right, the man who was keeping her died, but that was three weeks ago. Every time I need her, she’s in the next stage, crying. It puffs up her eyes!”
They finally got her to work and I watched the scene and she certainly wasn’t star material. When Harmon said “Print!” and began lining up the next shot, she disappeared again and I followed her into the adjoining sound stage and found her in a dark corner of a large, empty office setting. She was crying; I could hear her as I approached. I told her I’d been a friend of Johnny’s, in fact a client, and had liked him very much, and I’d just heard about his death.
She didn’t respond, but turned her head away. I sat there with her, not saying a word until she was called to go to work again. Then I followed her and after the next take asked Harmon to introduce us. I thought I’d skip the in-betweens and asked her to have dinner with me. “I wouldn’t say a word,” I said, “just be with you, then take you home.” She refused, but this time she looked at me.

Used to be a family institution, the unmarried brother of a parent,, the loyal family retainer who looked after Grandma in her old age and never met the right girl, in spite of concerted efforts to pair him off with a nice girl, and later, with the divorced coworkers or widow from church. Sometimes he had a roommate who seemed to be in the same boat, for years or even decades.
I had one of those bachelor uncles, my mother's older brother Jimmy, who emigrated from Ireland to the US in the 1950s, a few years ahead of my mother. He had some kind of city job with the LA County School District. We got to know him when my dad was stationed in Southere California in the 1970s and then later in the mid 80s.
He had a roommate, George, who was from somewhere in the Midwest, left home as a teenager and joined the Navy after Pearl Harbor, then went Merchant Marine after the War ended. That was the reason given for why he never married. He was dark and roughspoken where my uncle was fair and well educated, but he was good with kids, knew how to fix anything and taught me to drive when I was 6 (yes, 6). My mother occasionally wondered what they could possibly have in common other than economic need to share digs.
I don't think my parents were in complete denial abiut their relationship, you just acted "as if" in those days, though we weren't around them for long periods unsupervised and I recall my mom telling us we were strictly forbidden to go to the second floor of their house. I snuck up there once and it was very ordinary, couldn't understand the reason for the prohibition.
There were snippets of things overheard through the years, that Uncle Jimmy had been strongly encouraged to "take the boat" and that he'd originally worked for the Catholic Archdiocese but abruptly switched to the public school system, that a friend of his called the house once from jail. None was explained and the folks clammed in our presence on the subject
Dad got orders to Colorado when I was a teen and we lost touch. Uncle Jimmy passed away suddenly when I was a senior in high school and none of us kids went to the funeral. I heard George stayed on in the house, but years later, when in was stationed in California myself, I went back to their old neighborhood to look him up and there was a family of five living there. George and Jimmy s garden was gone, replaced by swing sets. They were friendly enough, but they were recent arrivals themselves and had no info and neither did any of the neighbors. An old lady who.might have known was in a home but no one knew where.
A few years back in asked Mom about it and she admitted after Jimmy died she lost all contact with George and didn't know she'd ever known much about him to begin with.
That's the big missing piece of my family history.

Fox News finished the week of Feb 13-18 as the most-watched network among all of basic cable in both total viewers and prime-time viewers, marking the fifth-straight week that FNC has won both categories.
Fox News averaged 2.7 million prime-time viewers to beat TNT, which averaged 1.99 million.
MSNBC finished third with 1.58 million prime-time viewers thanks to the most-watched week ever for “The Rachel Maddow Show” since October 2008.
Maddow has been on a serious roll lately, averaging over 2 million viewers every night since President Trump’s inauguration. She averaged 2.6 million viewers leading up to the ’08 election. HGTV and USA round out the top five most-watched networks from 8-11 p.m. ET. MSNBC is now the fastest growing cable network over 2016 among all cable network after its big week. However, Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” beat Maddow in the 9 p.m. ET hour despite MSNBC’s big week.
Among total day viewers, Fox News averaged 1.73 million sets of eyeballs to beat Nickelodeon’s 1.1 million. Cable news rivals CNN and MSNBC finished third and fourth, respectively, despite failing to average over one million viewers. HGTV finished fifth in the total viewers category, averaging 865,000.
“The O’Reilly Factor” notched four of the top 10 cable telecasts in total viewers and Fox News programs made up 18 of the top 30 telecasts in total viewers, including various episodes of “Americas News HQ,” “Happening Now,” “The Five,” “Special Report with Bret Baier,” “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and “Hannity.” Fox News’ sister station isn’t doing too shabby either.
Fox Business Network was the most-watched business network in total day viewers for a fifth consecutive week and beat CNBC in both business day viewers and the key demo. This is FBN’s first weekly sweep in 2017 and the third time ever the network has topped CNBC in both viewers and demo for an entire week.

There are a lot of reasons to feel very, very good about this morning's Oscar nominations, which broke several records for diversity and recognized performers of color in every acting category. But the nominations of Mel Gibson for Best Director, and of Casey Affleck for Best Actor, left a bad taste in the mouths of many. These nominations are not just a validation of Gibson and Affleck-both of whom have checkered pasts, to say the least-but also indicate Hollywood's larger willingness to brush male misconduct under the rug in the name of "art."
Gibson has been a pariah for more than a decade, ever since he was caught on tape making a series of anti-semitic, misogynistic comments while under arrest for DUI in 2006. A domestic violence investigation was launched against the actor in 2010 following an abusive, racist tirade he left on his ex-wife Oksana Grigorieva's voicemail. And that's just the tip of the Gibson iceberg. This morning, the Academy nominated him for Best Director and garnered his movie Hacksaw Ridge with an additional five nominations.
Meanwhile, Affleck was sued in 2010 by two former co-workers from ill-fated experimental mockumentary I'm Still Here, which he directed. The film's producer Amanda White and cinematographer Magdalena Gorka filed separate lawsuits, each claiming that Affleck and other crew members had subjected them to a barrage of inappropriate sexual comments and unwanted advances. Both suits were settled out of court. This morning, the Academy nominated Affleck for Best Actor for his work as Manchester By The Sea's grief-stricken protagonist, a performance that already won him a Golden Globe earlier this month.
On the bright side, the internet made its outrage over Gibson and Affleck's nominations known with swift, delightful fervor.
Several commentators also noted the uncomfortable parallel between these nominations and the election of President Donald Trump, who has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by multiple women.

"The message was: ‘We want you to know we don’t like you,'" says former New York Liberty Candice Wiggins.
A former WNBA star has attacked the league, claiming most players are lesbians and that she was harassed for being straight and popular with fans.
“Me being heterosexual… and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge,” Candice Wiggins, a former guard for the Minnesota Lynx and New York Liberty, told the Chicago Tribune. “I would say 98% of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place. There was a whole different set of rules they could apply.”
Wiggins, who is working on her memoir, claims there was a “very harmful” culture in the WNBA during her eight-year career. She announced her retirement abruptly in March, after receiving a contract extension from the Liberty.
TAMPA, FL - APRIL 08: Candace Parker #3 (L) of the Tennessee Lady Volunteers greets Candice Wiggins #11 of the Stanford Cardinal during player introductions prior to the National Championsip Game of the 2008 NCAA Women's Final Four at St. Pete Times Forum April 8, 2008 in Tampa, Florida. (Photo by Doug Benc/Getty Images) Doug Benc/Getty Images “I wanted to play two more seasons of WNBA, but the experience didn’t lend itself to my mental state,” she explained. “It was a depressing state in the WNBA. It’s not watched. Our value is diminished. It can be quite hard. I didn’t like the culture inside the WNBA, and without revealing too much, it was toxic for me… My spirit was being broken.”
“People were deliberately trying to hurt me all of the time. I had never been called the B-word so many times in my life than I was in my rookie season. I’d never been thrown to the ground so much. The message was: ‘We want you to know we don’t like you.'”
Her frustration is fueled by the lack of respect she feels the WNBA receives. “We’re all fighting for crumbs… Viewership is minimal. Ticket sales are very low. They give away tickets and people don’t come to the game.”
Within the league, Wiggins claims, femininity was looked down upon.
“The way I looked, the way I played—those things contributed to the tension,” she says. “It comes to a point where you get compared so much to the men, you come to mirror the men,’ she said. “So many people think you have to look like a man, play like a man to get respect. I was the opposite. I was proud to a be a woman, and it didn’t fit well in that culture.”
While she says “there were horrible things happening to me every day,” Wiggins claims it ultimately made her stronger. “If I had not had this experience, I wouldn’t be as tough as I am.”
A number of past and current WNBA athletes have come out, but there’s no hard data on the number of lesbians in the league, which has more than 120 players. Her declaration has been rebuked by other players, including Chicago Sky center Imani Boyette, who says Wiggins is reinforcing stereotypes about women in basketball.

Washington (CNN)The FBI rejected a recent White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump's associates and Russians known to US intelligence during the 2016 presidential campaign, multiple US officials briefed on the matter tell CNN.
White House officials had sought the help of the bureau and other agencies investigating the Russia matter to say that the reports were wrong and that there had been no contacts, the officials said. The reports of the contacts were first published by The New York Times and CNN on February 14. The direct communications between the White House and the FBI were unusual because of decade-old restrictions on such contacts. Such a request from the White House is a violation of procedures that limit communications with the FBI on pending investigations.

Hi, I'd like to one day run for office. I'm queer as a three dollar bill and I'm totally okay with that - I've been called a faggot my whole life and I don't care anymore if I am one.
I'm a very very strong supporter of all LGBTQ people - and I believe that our youth - the young boys and girls in the schools - are the most important thing for us to focus on -- the bullying is out of control, the harassment even from teachers, the curriculum doesn't include gay history, the suicide rates are too fucking high, etc.
My platform if I ran would include a massive LGBTQ rights bill that would encompass everything in one sweeping federal landmark law - and I would also fight for the differently abled, the poor, the homeless, the hungry, the vulnerable - I'm a Catholic and I would fight for a federal budget that represented the true gospel of Jesus - compassion, empathy, and love before profit and short-term financial gain.
I know I have what it takes to really be "somebody", even though I'm a nobody.
I have a lot of problems:
(a) I tried to get a job in gay porn years ago. Never did any films, but I thought about it and its kind of a secret, even though I find nothing whatsoever shameful about working in gay porn, and even if I was in politics, I'd advocate for the rights of the gay porn industry. Heck, if I was President, I'd probably put Colt movies on in the White House movie theater.
(b) I've hired male escorts. But I don't find anything shameful about that either. I think that sex work between two consenting adults should be legal. The government has no place moralizing and telling other people how to live their lives. Sex is a private matter. Sex is human, its natural and normal. Homosexuality is natural, normal, and it is part of God's plan and Nature's plan.
(c) I'm very feminine and am soft-spoken - Straight men are uncomfortable around me in daily life - women are very comfortable around me - including lesbians - and gay men are very comfortable around me. But straight men- no.
So pretty much I could maybe run for Ambassador of the Folsom Street Fair or Honorary Mayor of Fire Island - which would be great.... but I should probably kiss goodbye any delusions I have of seeking any actual "legitimate" local office, right?
I just feel so angry and so livid about Trump and the religious right controlling everything that I'm tired of just screaming at the TV all night long. I have to do something to speak out against this douchebag and the Pat Robertson/Tony Perkins/Franklin Graham/fundamentalist bigot crowd.

“Greater enforcement” may be coming down on recreational marijuana, the White House’s spokesman said Thursday.
Sean Spicer, during his daily briefing, gave the first clear glimpse at the new administration’s views toward the burgeoning rise of legal marijuana.
“There’s a big difference between (medical marijuana) and recreational marijuana, and I think when you see something like the opioid addiction crisis blossoming in so many states around this country, the last thing we should be doing is encouraging people,” Spicer said, when asked about the topic of legalization. “There is still a federal law that we need to abide by in terms of recreational marijuana and other drugs of that nature.”
When asked about enforcement action, Spicer said: “That’s a question for the Department of Justice. I do believe that you’ll see greater enforcement of it.”

John Irving attacks 'intolerant' Trump in defence of political awards speeches
Writer of The Cider House Rules laments new president’s threat to LGBT and abortion rights, and says winners at next weekend’s Oscars should be free to protest
Andrew Pulver, Monday 20 February 2017 13.28 EST
Oscar-winning novelist John Irving has taken aim at Donald Trump over the latter’s threat to LGBT and abortion rights as well as religious-based bigotry.
Irving, who won a best adapted screenplay Oscar in 2000 for the adaptation of his own novel The Cider House Rules, has contributed an essay to the Hollywood Reporter in which he considered the “protocol” over whether or not award winners should make explicitly political speeches.
Having explained the backdrop and consequences to his own acceptance speech, in which he thanked Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Rights Action League (now known as NARAL Pro-Choice America), Irving states bluntly that “yes, The Cider House Rules is a pro-choice film”. Describing Trump as a figure of “outright bias”, and vice-president Pence as a “sexual dinosaur”, Irving writes: “In Trump’s administration, LGBT and abortion rights are in danger.”
Irving also touches on Trump’s travel ban, calling it “discriminatory” and that it has “already helped the hardliners in Iran”. He adds: “In [the artistic] community, tolerance of intolerance is unacceptable. President Trump’s intolerance is glaring.”
However, Irving says he does not advocate a complete shutdown of pro-Trump voices. “People who are disinclined to speak out (politically) should not be harassed. If there are Trump supporters, let them speak. What I’m saying is that anyone with something political to say should feel free to say it.”

Kellyanne Conway, the first woman to run a successful U.S. presidential campaign, said Thursday that she doesn’t consider herself a feminist “in a classic sense” because the term is associated with being “anti-male” and “pro-abortion.”
Conway, who now serves as White House counselor to President Trump, made her comments at the Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor in Maryland, where she also praised Trump’s hiring of women and encouraged women to run for president.
“It’s difficult for me to call myself a feminist in a classic sense because it seems to be very anti-male, and it certainly is very pro-abortion, and I’m neither anti-male or pro-abortion,” Conway said during a conversation onstage with conservative commentator Mercedes Schlapp. “So, there’s an individual feminism, if you will, that you make your own choices. … I look at myself as a product of my choices, not a victim of my circumstances.”
Conway also decried what she termed a lot of women having “a problem with women in power.”
“You know, this whole sisterhood, this whole ‘let’s go march for women’s rights’ and, you know, just constantly talking about what women look like or what they wear or making fun of their choices or presuming that they’re not as powerful as the men around,” Conway said. “This presumptive negativity about women in power, I think, is very unfortunate.”
Conway was widely credited for helping steer an unwieldy Trump campaign to victory in November against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who would have been the first female U.S. president.
Since arriving in the White House, Conway has been dogged by several controversies, including instances where she has appeared on camera on behalf of Trump and said things that were contradicted by other administration officials. She also drew criticism for endorsing the clothing line of Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, in a television interview conducted from the White House briefing room.
During the conversation at CPAC, Conway described Trump as “a family man” and praised him for promoting women, both in his business ventures and as president.
“Donald Trump is someone who is not fully understood for how compassionate and what a great boss he is to women,” Conway said.
A mother of four, Conway said she faces the same challenges as all women in finding a balance between work and family, a dynamic she said Trump understands.
Conway said she also looks forward to the arrival of a female president one day.
“I would tell my three daughters and your daughters, or you, that the job for first female president of the United States remains open, so go for it,” she said.

Patrick Stewart is 76-years-old, but he only recently found out that he's uncircumcised!
The Logan actor made the revelation during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, which is set to air on Friday (February 24).
“One night with my wife [Sunny Ozell], as you do, we were talking about stuff and I mentioned my circumcision and she said, ‘You’re not circumcised,’ I said, ‘What do you mean? That’s ridiculous, I should know. All my life my mother has told me it was fashionable at the time,'” Patrick said during the interview (via E! News).
The actor says he asked his doctor about it during his next visit.
“While he was down there, I said, ‘By the way, my wife and I have had a little disagreement, I am circumcised, aren’t I?’" Patrick said. "He took a closer look and said, ‘Not! I am Jewish, and definitely know the difference!’"

Most nominal Catholics I knew growing up never went to church and were reasonably socially liberal (well, especially compared to Presbyterians, Evangelicals and Baptists). The only traditional observances they made were maybe midnight masses (because, hey, at least is a break in the routine) as well as a minor streak of homophobia and woman-disparaging that emerge through drunken ranting "jokes".
And, of course, they all retained the guilt.
My question is, for people who freely left the church, did you find it difficult to stop letting guilt and the fear of hell - as well as the temptation of getting to see your family in the afterlife, for instance - infringe on your life?
Intellectually, I'm agnostic, but there is a certain level of personal weakness holding me back.

Why is it pointless? Because the way that federal agencies deal with things is directly influenced by the priorities set from the top. Donald Trump doesn't give a shit about the financial institutions that his branch of government contracts with, so while he is president, they can do whatever they want. It's really quite ridiculous and increasingly, I am becoming furious about things.
Here is what happening: I found out that the institution that services my student loans has been taking anywhere from a week and half to two full weeks before they process my payment. My payments are handled automatically from their end via automatic ACH withdrawal that is initiated by them and was scheduled by them. It turns out, they don't post the payment for several weeks. If you think that doesn't make a difference in terms of interest accrued, well think again, because it adds up to about $4 every month. And that's just for my account. Think about what they are making when you multiply that across the hundreds of thousands of accounts that they service?
So fucking infuriating.

Franklin Graham is set to headline this year's Festival of Hope gathering at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC, Canada, March 3-5.
Although this event is supported by many local churches in the area, there are many others in the Christian community who are uneasy with having Franklin Graham speak in Vancouver, in light of his outspoken bigotry targeting refugees, muslims and the LGBTQ+ community.
The goal of this petition is to demonstrate that not all Christians in the city of Vancouver agree with Franklin Graham. In light of recent events in our country (ie. the shooting in Quebec) and south of the boarder, many people of Christian faith in Vancouver believe that Franklin Graham will not help establish and bring shalom (peace). Many believe that his presence will in fact do the opposite. The purpose of this petition is to stand in solidarity with marginalized and minority groups, as we stand for the justice and dignity of all people, regardless of race, religion, gender or orientation.
Please sign this petition if you want to peacefully voice your opposition to Franklin Graham speaking in Vancouver!

U.S. national security officials are reportedly ready to “go nuclear” after President Donald Trump's latest attack on the intelligence community.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday and Wednesday, Trump insisted that the “real scandal” was not that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn lied about his contact with Russia. Instead, the president blasted what he said were “un-American” leaks that led to Flynn’s ousting.
On Wednesday, former NSA intelligence analyst John Schindler provided some insight into the reaction of national security officials.
“Now we go nuclear,” he wrote on Twitter. “[Intelligence community] war going to new levels. Just got an [email from] senior [intelligence community] friend, it began: ‘He will die in jail.'”
“US intelligence is not the problem here,” Schindler added in another tweet. “The President’s collusion with Russian intelligence is. Many details, but the essence is simple.”

He's a self-hating gay who supports Trump because he believes he has a close friendship with Trump's creepy son Eric.
Any time any one brings up Trump or Trump is in their news he manages to find some way to either try to normalize Trump or he passive aggressively steers the conversation away from Trump and his horrific behavior.
This morning was hilarious. They were talking about the Oscars and he went off on a rant about how he didn't want to watch them because he knew people were going to be political and they should basically take their awards and shut up.
Apparently several of his listeners texted and called in telling him they disagreed and that he was trying to silence other people's free speech and he was acting like a Nazi about it.
This set Elvis off (his ego can't handle it) and he started ranting and screaming into the microphone how the listeners should shut the hell up, that they didn't know what the hell they were talking about, that everyone protesting is doing so uselessly, that he wasn't going to listen or "take it," and that he was blocking and deleting anyone that disagreed with him (he's so thin skinned that he constantly talks about blocking anyone that even slightly criticizes him), and then went on to say repeatedly that listeners could go fuck themselves.
He's unhinged and it was fascinating to listen to.

"The 66-year-old actor, widely known for his starring role as Keith Partridge on the 1970s series The Partridge Family, reveals to PEOPLE that he is fighting the memory loss disease.
Cassidy, who watched his grandfather battle the disease and witnessed his mother “disappear” into dementia until she died at age 89, tells PEOPLE of his diagnosis: “I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming.”
Of his mother’s struggles, Cassidy recalls: “In the end, the only way I knew she recognized me is with one single tear that would drop from her eye every time I walked into the room. … I feared I would end up that way.”
Now that he’s come to terms with his condition, Cassidy has made the decision to stop touring as a musician to concentrate on his health and happiness. “I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I’ve been without any distractions,” he says. “I want to love. I want to enjoy life.”
Cassidy’s revelation follows a roller coaster of personal ups and downs that the actor has faced in the past decade, including a show in Agoura Hills, California, this past weekend where Cassidy repeatedly struggled to remember lyrics to songs he had been singing for nearly 50 years.
In November 2010, he was charged with a DUI and was subsequently charged with the same offense in August 2013 and January 2014. A month after his third arrest, his wife, Sue Shifrin-Cassidy, filed for divorce. In February 2015, the actor filed for bankruptcy and was charged following his hit-and-run eight months later in October 2015.
The ’70s teen heartthrob has also battled substance abuse issues, including a stint in rehab in 2014. •For more on how David Cassidy is coping with his dementia diagnosis, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday
Cassidy, who received an Emmy nomination for his appearance on Police Story in 1978, was most recently seen on TV in a 2013 episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

I love opera, but I've never cared for her voice. I understand why she was so brilliant, and I can hear her skill and her intelligence and her talent in her recordings. But it's such a harsh and unpleasant voice to my ears, so I just can't warm to her. I much prefer to hear from around her time the voices of sopranos who were not nearly the actress or interpreter she was (like Joan Sutherland or Victoria de los Angeles or Anna Moffo) because their voices were actually beautiful to hear.

Back to shilling for the stuff cats shit in, Katherine!
"The CBS drama was a big deal when it was pitched and landed at CBS, not only because the project was the type of court case of the week story that CBS loves but also because it would bring Katherine Heigl back to TV in her first big role since the flop that was State of Affairs on NBC. Unfortunately, the series was not hot out of the gate, with TV By The Numbers reporting that the show only earned a .8 rating in the advertising demo. A total of 5.3 million total viewers tuned in for the episode, which would be a reasonably sizable amount on other networks, but since CBS skews older, it's really not a great number for the Eye Network.
To give you an idea for how low that rating is compared to its total viewers, ABC's Match Game, which also airs in the 10 p.m. timeslot, did a .9 rating on Wednesday night with only 3.5 million total viewers tuning in. That doesn't bode particularly well for Doubt, as a show's premiere is often one of its highest-rated episodes. The numbers are likely to at least go down a little bit in the weeks to come and since a .8 is already low, things are looking, well, doubtful for Doubt."

Union-Busting Republicans Lick Their Lips at the Possibility of a Federal Right-to-Work Law Illustration by Tyler Comrie Just about every congressional session, Republicans unveil what's known as a "right to work" bill. Under the guise of liberating workers, these measures make it harder for unions to collect dues, limiting their power on the job and in the political arena. Championed by business lobbyists and loathed by organized labor, the federal version, which covers the private sector, is typically seen as pie-in-the-sky legislation not worth getting too riled up about on either side.
But the latest iteration — introduced by Congressmen Joe Wilson (R-SC) and Steve King (R-IA) earlier this month — is triggering an emphatically different reaction within union ranks.
"I can't remember a time when it was this serious of an attack," labor lobbyist Ken Zinn told the Voice. Zinn has worked in Washington for over three decades and is currently political director for National Nurses United, a labor union that represents approximately 185,000 registered nurses across the country. "It's certainly something we and everyone else should be extremely worried about."
A national right-to-work law — versions of which are already on the books in 28 different states — would eliminate "union security" clauses, a standard part of labor contracts, that require workers to pay fees to labor organizations that bargain on their behalf. When in place, they solidify a key source of revenue for unions. Right-to-work strangles that revenue.
The measures ultimately affect the entire workforce, union and non-union alike: Workers in right-to-work states earn 3.1 percent less than those in other states, according to the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute. The workplace fatality rate also tends to be higher in states with such laws.
The current Republican-dominated government has created arguably the most favorable landscape for national passage since the measures first cropped up in the South in the World War II era. Since their introduction, the laws have had a sordid history.
The first right-to-work push kicked off in Texas in 1941, against the backdrop of a national wave of union organizing wins and New Deal reforms that brought the labor movement to the doorstep of the largely union-free South and Southwest. Anxious about the rapidly changing tide, a group of conservative small-business owners, under the banner of the Christian American Association, began to lobby against mandatory union dues. Heading the group was Vance Muse, a former oil industry lobbyist later described by his own grandson as a "white supremacist, an anti-Semite, and a Communist-baiter" who opposed women's suffrage and child labor laws. He warned the local press of a "red radical scheme to organize Negro maids, cooks, and nurses in order to have a Communist informer in every Southern home."
By the end of the decade, Texas and eleven other states had passed right-to-work laws, and more mainstream trade associations had adopted the cause. More recently, as the GOP has seized control of state governments and labor's clout has waned, a flurry of states have passed similar laws, including Kentucky and Missouri this year. Labor has also dodged some bullets: The U.S. Supreme Court seemed poised to institute public-sector right-to-work before Justice Antonin Scalia's death last year. New Hampshire legislators also narrowly voted down right-to-work last Thursday, bucking the state's new Republican governor.
Contemporary supporters of right-to-work, like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity, and a constellation of conservative think tanks, see the issue as one of individual liberty. The measures lead to "increased worker freedom," said Representative Wilson, perhaps best known for disrupting President Obama's address to a joint session of Congress in 2009 by shouting, "You lie!" "Nothing in this legislation prevents people from joining unions or prevents unions from operating."

Celebrity chef and self-described “privileged Eastern liberal” Anthony Bourdain slammed his fellow leftist elites this week, arguing that their disdain for working-class Americans helped create “the upswell of rage and contempt” that propelled Donald Trump to the presidency.
“The utter contempt with which privileged Eastern liberals such as myself discuss red-state, gun-country, working-class America as ridiculous and morons and rubes is largely responsible for the upswell of rage and contempt and desire to pull down the temple that we’re seeing now,” Bourdain said in an interview with Reason magazine.
“I’ve spent a lot of time in gun-country, God-fearing America,” Bourdain continued. “There are a hell of a lot of nice people out there, who are doing what everyone else in this world is trying to do: the best they can to get by and take care of themselves and the people they love. When we deny them their basic humanity and legitimacy of their views, however different they may be than ours, when we mock them at every turn and treat them with contempt, we do no one any good.”
A professional chef turned author turned television personality, Bourdain has spent the last decade-plus traveling throughout the United States and the world as the host of his own culinary and cultural TV shows, first at the Food Network and more recently, at CNN.
Bourdain, who is a New York City native and an outspoken critic of the president-elect, said he thinks “the rise of authoritarianism” is a “global trend and one that should be of concern to everyone.” Still, he argued, the belittling or dismissive attitudes of his peers toward Trump’s supporters is counterproductive.
“The self-congratulatory tone of the privileged left — just repeating and repeating and repeating the outrages of the opposition — this does not win hearts and minds,” Bourdain said. “It doesn’t change anyone’s opinions. It only solidifies them and makes things worse for all of us.”
He added, “We should be breaking bread with each other and finding common ground whenever possible.”

In these depressing days we do what we can to stay entertained. Let's play a game -- let's list celebrities who are alive but everyone thinks are dead.
The rules -- the people must be alive (of course) and sufficiently well-known that their names will be known to many (if not most) people. Millennials don't count in "people" here -- nothing personal. It's just that they're not likely to be familiar with very elderly celebrities. The forgotten-but-not-gone need not be performers.
One more rule -- gay familiarity need not rule a person out. For instance, my choice, Carol Channing, is of course well-known by us to be alive and kicking, but my straight family are always shocked to hear she's not in the ground!

Why I Decided To License Starship's Music To Chick-fil-A
Post written by Grace Slick
Grace Slick is a singer-songwriter and visual artist. She was formerly a lead singer for Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship.
Recently an ad agency asked me if they could use a song I sang on, in 1987, for a TV commercial. I didn’t immediately tell them to go f**k themselves. After all, I’ve licensed my music to advertise someone else’s product before. In 1967, Jefferson Airplane wrote a psychedelic jingle about white rabbits jeans that’s a damn classic (Google it!). But that was for Levi Strauss & Co. This time, the agency wanted the Starship tune “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” for a very different kind of enterprise: Chick-fil-A.
Chick-fil-A pisses me off. The Georgia-based company has a well-documented history of funding organizations, through their philanthropic foundation WinShape, that are against gay marriage. In interviews, CEO Dan T. Cathy has critiqued gay-rights supporters who “have the audacity to define marriage” and said they are bringing “God’s judgment” upon the nation.
I firmly believe that men should be able to marry men, and women women. I am passionately against anyone who would try to suppress this basic human right. So my first thought when "Check"-fil-A came to me was, “F**k no!”
But then I decided, “F**k yes.”
So that was my voice you heard on the Chick-fil-A commercial during the Grammy Awards telecast. I am donating every dime that I make from that ad to Lambda Legal, the largest national legal organization working to advance the civil rights of LGBTQ people, and everyone living with HIV. Admittedly it’s not the millions that WinShape has given to organizations that define marriage as heterosexual. But instead of them replacing my song with someone else's and losing this opportunity to strike back at anti-LGBTQ forces, I decided to spend the cash in direct opposition to "Check"-fil-A’s causes – and to make a public example of them, too. We’re going to take some of their money, and pay it back.
See, I come from a time when artists didn’t just sell their soul to the highest bidder, when musicians took a stand, when the message of songs was “feed your head," not “feed your wallet.” We need that kind of artistic integrity today, more than ever. We won’t produce quality art if we don’t keep ourselves open to all people and possibilities, if we don’t put our money where our mouths are. As Jennifer Lopez quoted Toni Morrison during the Grammys telecast, "'This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self pity, no need for silence, and no room for fear. We do language. That is how civilizations heal.'"
You might think I’m writing this just to cover my ass for allowing a company whose practices many find morally objectionable to use Starship’s music. Well, I haven’t covered my ass since the day I was born (except, maybe, in a pair of white Levi’s). From the moment I agreed to license the song, I knew I wanted to set an example for other artists. I wanted to tell them, “Your art will survive and thrive. Do not let it be used by companies who support intolerance. Don’t be afraid to take a stand. You’re an artist; that’s what we do.”
I hope more musicians will think about the companies that they let use their songs; we can use our gifts to help stop the forces of bigotry.
Nothing’s gonna stop us now.

Pamela Anderson has never been a stranger to throwing her celebrity behind various public causes. Some of those bouts of advocacy have prompted fewer eye rolls than others—like her work for the National Sexual Violence Research Center, in contrast, to, say, PETA, which she memorably stripped down for several years ago as part of a campaign protesting the wearing of fur.
Now, the actress and model is stumping for a new group: her friend Julian Assange, and other men that she says have been falsely accused of sexual assault. Anderson has been a long-time supporter of the WikiLeaks founder, despite allegations that their friendship is simply a pretext for the delivery of sandwich-based assassination attempts. Now, she says she wants to campaign against the “bullying” of men like Assange, who was accused of having unprotected sex with a sleeping woman in Sweden back in 2010. Since then, Assange has lived in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, from which he’s waged an ongoing back-and-forth with Swedish prosecutors, as well as WikiLeaks’ daily goal of supposedly nonpartisan transparency and the inciting of bizarre, pizza-based conspiracy theories.
According to Jezebel, Anderson—herself a survivor of sexual assault—has said that she wants to start speaking out for the unsung victims of rape: the men accused of committing it. She specifically cited “These very progressive laws against sexual crimes, whatever you want to call it. It’s almost too progressive, it’s almost paralyzing. I’m going to actually start campaigning for men who have been victims of being accused of rape when they haven’t actually done anything.” Anderson also said that she’s convinced Assange is innocent, which is nice, because you don’t want to go around loudly advocating for accused rapists who you haven’t personally confirmed—through the magic of “feelings”—didn’t actually commit the crime.

The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take displaced people from Syria and Iraq. She also said Islam "is not the cause of terrorism" and that combatting extremism needs the cooperation of Muslim countries.
In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin's Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East.
Mrs Merkel has come under fire for taking in up to one million refugees amid security concerns and a string of migrant sex attacks across Germany.
After the Berlin lorry attack at a Christmas market in December, ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage said events such as that will be "Merkel's legacy".
Mrs Merkel had been a strong critic of Brexit, saying she had "deep regrets" about it.
Daily Star Online has revealed how Brexit may not reduce migration, with 650,000 immigrants set to head to our shores anyway.
She will go to the polls in September against Social Democrat candidate Martin Schulz, the former European Parliament President.
On Putin, she said Europe's ties with Russia remained challenging, but it was important to work with them in the fight against Islamist terrorism.

Fearful the new administration will abuse its power, the former president’s lawyers are uniting to fight back.
Top lawyers who helped the Obama White House craft and hold to rules of conduct believe President Donald Trump and his staff will break ethics norms meant to guard against politicization of the government — and they’ve formed a new group to prepare, and fight.
United to Protect Democracy, which draws its name from a line in President Barack Obama’s farewell address that urged his supporters to pick up where he was leaving off, has already raised a $1.5 million operating budget, hired five staffers and has plans to double that in the coming months. They’ve incorporated as both a 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4), allowing them to operate as a nonprofit but participate in some forms of political advocacy as well.
While other Trump opponents focus on taking the president to court over the travel ban and deportations, the new group plans to drill into issues that aren’t already hitting the headlines, like potential intervention in and intimidation of regulatory agencies by West Wing staff.
“When people hear concerns about democracies declining into authoritarianism, they expect that moment to come in a singular thunderclap where everyone can see that this is the time,” said Ian Bassin, who’s leading the new group. “In reality, often times, democracies decline over a period of years that happen through a series of much smaller steps.”
... Trump’s attack on the judge who halted his immigration ban already has him building a plan for what might happen if the White House directly defies a judicial ruling, and what they’d need to do in the potential constitutional crisis that would follow. Existing nonprofits, he said, have not been structured to deal with the kind of unprecedented, norm-breaking threats that he believes are coming from Trump and his aides.
“We need an organization that is specifically and holistically focused on that worst-case scenario,” Bassin said.

If you are in the area, get the fuck out of there; head north!
The Butte County Sheriff’s Department on Sunday issued an evacuation order for parts of Oroville, saying a “hazardous situation” has developed involving an emergency spillway being used to lower water levels at the Oroville Dam.
“Operation of the auxiliary spillway has led to severe erosion that could lead to a failure of the structure,” the Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. “Failure of the auxiliary spillway structure will result in an uncontrolled release of flood waters from Lake Oroville.”
Officials at the Department of Water Resources also sent out an alert saying: “Use of the auxiliary spillway has led to severe erosion that could lead to a failure of the structure.”
Hours earlier at a noon news conference, California Department of Water Resources officials said Oroville Lake is draining without incident and that the amount of water it’s releasing is beginning to taper off, thanks in part to several days of sunny weather and less runoff flowing into the reservoir.
“We think by this time tomorrow … the flow over the auxiliary spillway will have ended,” said Eric See, a spokesman for the Department of Water Resources.
Diminished by years of drought conditions, the reservoir had become a symbol of the state’s worsening water crisis. But an unusually wet winter took the lake from nearly full to overflowing in less than a week.
At the same time, the nearly mile-long concrete spillway that the dam’s managers rely on to release excess water began to crumble, with erosion worsening as millions of gallons of water poured over it.
It continued to rain. Realizing the lake might rise to a level that would trigger the use of an emergency spillway, state workers began clearing the area of trees and brush that could be sent hurtling downstream.
On Saturday morning, water began washing over the dam’s emergency spillway for the first time since it was completed in 1968. Photographs showed a torrent of water rushing downhill to join the Feather River.
On Sunday, officials said that although they expected the uncontrolled spill to end, they plan to continue using the concrete spillway to create more storage in the reservoir in anticipation of rainfall later in the week.
“We’re going to continue to flow water down the spillway and lower the lake,” See said. “You’re going to see the lake dropping over the next several days.”
Officials emphasized that while erosion had carved a massive hole in the main spillway, the dam itself is structurally sound.
“Believe me, in the last several days there have been a lot of eyes on it,” said Bill Croyle, acting director of the water department. “Oroville Dam is not in any way a part of the damage that occurred.”
Officials have estimated it could cost $100 million to $200 million to repair the damage to the spillway and other features.

PLAINS — Former President Jimmy Carter’s advocacy for renewable energy is rooted in this tiny community, and on Wednesday those roots bore the fruit of a 1.3-megawatt solar energy station that will provide more than half of Plains’ power.
Along with wife Rosalynn, grandson Jason and representatives from SolAmerica and Georgia Power, Carter took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the newly operational solar farm in Plains.
A long-time advocate for renewable energy, Carter leased the 10-acre site in his hometown to solar energy company SolAmerica, which has developed the 1.3-megawatt station that is expected to provide more than 50 percent of the electricity for the city.
“Rosalynn and I are very pleased to be a part of SolAmerica’s exciting solar project in Plains,” said Carter in a press release about the project. “Distributed, clean energy generation is critical to meeting growing energy needs around the world while fighting the effects of climate change. I am encouraged by the tremendous progress that solar and other clean energy solutions have made in recent years and expect those trends to continue.”
Carter explained at the ceremony that because of his humble, agriculturally-rooted childhood, he saw the importance of renewable energy at an early age.

I did a search with the words: book, read, reading novel, fiction......and nothing came up so I've started this new thread.
My faves of the last couple of months are:
CHRISTODORA by Tim Murphy, a brilliantly written novel about New York City and the interlocking lives of the inhabitants of an East Village apartment house from the 1980s-2020 (yes, the future!). The blurbs compare it to Bonfire of the Vanities but it has so much more heart.
SWING TIME by Zadie Smith, the story of two black Englishwomen, a good girl and a bad girl, and how they navigate the 1980s-2000s, heavily influenced by the Golden Age Hollywood musicals they watched as kids on their VCRs. Like other Smith novels, it sometimes feels overwritten and badly edited but it's well worth the read.
DOCTOR THORNE by Anthony Trollope, the 3rd in the series of Barsetshire novels. Absolutely charming story and a comfort to read in these troubling modern times. The ITV adaptation by Julian Fellowes didn't get good reviews but it prompted me to go back to an old favorite author. Maybe I'll check it out now though the casting seems very off to me.

A few of years ago, this male singer dated a civilian woman under a contract. While his fans did not like her, we repeatedly pointed out that she was one of the most genuinely caring people in his life.
After they parted ways, his life got very bumpy. She kept in touch with him throughout. Basically, she was there for him, even if there was nothing in it for her.
He’s emotionally vulnerable right now and he’s come to the realization that she was pretty much the only girl he knows who didn’t screw him over. They are hanging out together again as friends right now, but he is actually thinking about asking her to do another contract with him.
Before his fans go crazy, they should consider this: That might be a GOOD thing!
He’s hurting right now and could really use a stable female influence in his life whom he trusts. She genuinely cares about him as a friend, she is mature and stable for her age, she is trustworthy, and there won’t be any drama. “Dating” her again would be a very easy solution to his current problem. The sooner he gets his act together, the sooner he can get back to making music.
Right now there is no contract, but if they do decide to enter a new agreement, it’s going to be for a minimum of one year… so fans should be prepared to have her around for a while!

So again the question is, how can you be so cold?
An undocumented immigrant diagnosed with a brain tumor while under Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody was returned to a detention center from a Texas hospital, her lawyers said.
The woman, a Salvadoran national identified only as Sara, was released from Huguley Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, and taken to Prairieland Detention Center against her will, according to her lawyers.
"She told us they tied her hands and ankles in her condition," Melissa Zuniga, a member of Sara's legal team, told The Hill. "She's complaining of a lot of pain."
Zuniga said Sara, 26, was cut off from communication with her family and lawyers, even after the hospital and ICE had cleared Sara's mother for unrestricted phone access.
"Requests by family members to visit detainees who have been hospitalized are permitted but must be approved in advance with ICE and the appropriate consulate. ICE reached out to the family to explain the process," said Gillian Christensen, an ICE spokeswoman.
Zuniga also said the Salvadoran consulate had been unresponsive, and a team of volunteers was heading to the detention center to demand Sara's immediate release.
Sara's exact condition wasn't immediately available, but according to previous reports she was transferred from Prairieland to Huguley after complaining of severe headaches and collapsing on Feb. 10.
Doctors at the hospital diagnosed Sara with a tumor and told the Daily Beast they would soon perform surgery.
Zuniga said Sara complained of profuse nosebleeds and of long-term memory loss, while not receiving treatment at the hospital.
"Huguley no longer wants to be in charge of her case because they’re getting hounded by calls and a potential lawsuit," said Zuniga.
Sara's family is threatening to sue the hospital because they claim her condition deteriorated in the 12 days she spent there.
Sara's sister and legal team, all based in New Jersey, were flying to Texas Wednesday night to make the case for her release.
Sara told Zuniga she was given a CD with her medical records at the hospital, and instructed by doctors not to turn them over to ICE. The CD was taken from Sara upon her return to the detention center, Zuniga said.
In the first month of the Trump administration, several cases of immigration detention have drawn national attention, as pro-immigration activists decry what they consider heavy-handed tactics by immigration enforcement agents.

A suspect arrested on Thursday in connection with a triple shooting in Olathe, Kansas, allegedly shouted "get out of my country" before opening fire and later told a bartender that he had killed two Middle Eastern men, according to a report by the Kansas City Star.
The Olathe Police Department responded to reports of shots fired at Austin’s Bar and Grill in Olathe on Wednesday night. Three men with gunshot wounds were transported to area hospitals, where one victim later died.
According to a Wednesday report by the Kansas City Star, the suspect fled on foot. The suspect was arrested at approximately 12:40 a.m. and the case remains under investigation, according to police.
Adam Purinton, a 51-year-old resident of Olathe identified by the Kansas City Star as the suspect arrested early Thursday morning, reportedly told a bartender at an Applebee’s in Clinton that he had killed two Middle Eastern men and needed somewhere to hide.
Garmin officials identified two of the victims, who worked at the company's Aviation Systems Engineering team in Olathe, as Alok Madasani and Srinivas Kuchibhotla. In an email to employees, officials wrote that Kuchibhotla was the deceased victim, according to the Kansas City Star's report on Thursday.
The Kansas City Star identified the third victim as Ian Grillot.
Both Madasani and Kuchibhotla have Indian universities listed on their Linkedin pages.
The Henry County Sheriff's Office confirmed to TPM that Purinton is being held at the county jail. Major Rob Hills told TPM that three counts have been filed against Purinton, but did not specify what they were.

Leave it to Grace Slick to make an activist statement by saying "yes" to use of Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" in an ad for fast food chain Chick-fil-A.
The co-founder of Starship's predecessor, 1960s psychedelic group Jefferson Airplane, Slick has penned an op-ed explaining her decision to authorize a license of the 1987 hit to a company known for supporting organizations that are anti-gay marriage. The commercial first aired during the Grammy Awards on Feb. 12.
"That was my voice you heard," writes Slick in Forbes. "I am donating every dime that I make from that ad to Lambda Legal, the largest national legal organization working to advance the civil rights of LGBTQ people, and everyone living with HIV... Instead of them replacing my song with someone else's and losing this opportunity to strike back at anti-LGBTQ forces, I decided to spend the cash in direct opposition to Chick-fil-A’s causes – and to make a public example of them, too. We’re going to take some of their money, and pay it back."

To conduct the Oscar Sunday Survey, Pollfish [www.pollfish.com]—the world's leading self-service mobile flash survey platform—asked 1,000 Oscar-watching Americans their opinions about the upcoming event.
*** POLLFISH.COM OSCAR SUNDAY SURVEY *** (survey of 1,000 Americans, conducted Feb. 22, 2017)
>> MOST AMERICANS DON'T WANT TO HEAR HOLLYWOOD'S POLITICAL OPINIONS 45% of Americans think celebrities should be allowed to voice their opinions at the Oscars. Another 25% say Hollywood shouldn't use its platform to talk politics, 21% think celebrities should completely stay out of politics, and 10% say Hollywood is too liberal.
>> 1 IN 4 AMERICANS DON'T WANT TO HEAR TRUMP'S NAME AT THE OSCARS Asked which issues they don't want to hear about at the Oscars, 19% of Americans said they hope celebrities don't talk about Donald Trump. Other topics Americans don't want to hear about are immigration (14%), the refugee situation (12%), and racial inequality (12%). Only 12% of Americans wouldn't mind hearing about political topics during the Oscars.
>> HALF OF AMERICANS THINK THIS YEAR'S NOMINEES ARE MORE DIVERSE THAN USUAL Asked whether they think this year's Oscar-nominated films are more diverse than in previous years, 49% of Americans said yes. Another 18% said no, and 13% think the Oscars have always been diverse. 1 in 5 Americans aren't sure.
>> MEN AND WOMEN DON'T SEE EYE-TO-EYE ON OSCAR DIVERSITY 54% of men and 47% of women think this year's Oscar-nominated movies are more diverse than in years past—a 7% difference.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange decided to get in on Milo Yiannopoulos‘ most recent controversy by denouncing the “liberals” who are happy that the Breitbart tech editor has been exiled from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
Yiannopoulos was meant to give a speech at CPAC this week, but after a video surfaced of him apparently defending pedophilia, he was disinvited from the event. Yiannopoulos has stated that he is “horrified” by pedophilia, but the impact of the video cost him his book deal with publisher Simon & Schuster, and there are indications that Breitbart might be thinking about firing him.

From Mr. S: My Life with Frank Sinatra book :
I was thirty-seven, he was fifty-two, and he liked playing Big Daddy to me, protecting me from all those evil influences he feared I would be unable to resist. To him, the hippies were the coming scourge of the earth, as savage and destructive as the barbarians who sacked ancient Rome.
Yet Frank had married the ultimate hippie. How could the sharpest, most hard-boiled guy on earth not see what he was getting? I guess it was because he liked what he saw. Ava Gardner, the greatest love of Frank’s life, described Mia to me as “a fag with a pussy.” (For- give Ava’s pungent language, but she didn’t mince words.)
Mia was very sexy. Even though she was compared to Twiggy, she was anything but a stick. She was much more like supermodel Kate Moss, and she would flaunt her body, using self-effacement as provocative bait.
She always paraded around almost naked and would say, “It doesn’t matter ’cause I don’t have anything for anyone to get excited about,” when she knew damn well that she did. In fact, she was totally confident that she was beautiful, and that confidence was the sexiest thing about her
Although Frank tended to go for more voluptuous women like Ava, or Kim Novak, or Marilyn Mon roe, he definitely didn’t have a single type. Mia actually brought back sweet memories of his affair with the teenage and similarly built Natalie Wood, whose own insanely ambitious Russian mother had pushed her on Frank, who needed no pushing himself.

Les français sont prêts à faire des choix radicaux. Ça tombe bien car nous avons une idée radicale à leur proposer.
Après un quinquennat fantôme et face à l‘échec annoncé de la prochaine élection présidentielle, nous pensons qu’il est temps de passer à la 6ème République pour sortir la France de sa léthargie.
Pour lancer cette 6ème République, nous souhaitons frapper un grand coup en élisant un Président étranger à la tête de notre beau pays.
Barack Obama a achevé son deuxième mandat de Président des États-Unis le 21 janvier dernier, pourquoi ne pas l’embaucher comme Président pour la France ?
Notre objectif est simple, recueillir avant le 15 Mars prochain, 1 million de promesses de vote pour convaincre Barack Obama de se présenter à l’élection présidentielle de Mai 2017.
- Barack Obama a le meilleur CV au monde pour le job.
- Parce qu'il est encore possible de voter pour un Président et non pas contre un candidat.
- Parce qu’à l’heure où la France s’apprête à voter massivement pour l’extrême droite, nous pouvons encore donner une leçon de démocratie à la planète en élisant un Président Français, étranger.

President Trump would beat Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in a hypothetical 2020 election, though he would lose in a race against an unnamed Democrat, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday.
When asked to choose between Trump or Warren, 42 percent said they would vote for Trump, while 36 percent chose Warren. Twenty-two percent said they did not know or did not have an opinion.
When asked if they would vote for Trump or the unnamed Democrat, 35 percent said they would probably vote for Trump, while 43 percent said they would probably pick the Democrat. Twenty-three percent said they did not know or have an opinion.
The poll was conducted just after the Senate voted to silence Warren following her speech last week criticizing then-Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), Trump’s pick for attorney general. Warren was barred from speaking on the Senate floor until after the debate on Sessions, who was eventually confirmed to head the Justice Department. Pollsters also found that 35 percent of voters said they strongly disapprove of the job Trump is doing as commander in chief, compared to 28 percent who said they strongly approve of the job the president is doing.
"Most presidents experience a honeymoon period in their first few months. It looks like Trump's is ending," said Kyle Dropp, chief research officer and co-founder of Morning Consult.
"The slate of bad news for the administration is catching up to him, although it's important to note that his approval rating remains sky-high among people who voted for him in November."
A majority of voters, 60 percent, think the country is on the wrong track, while 40 percent said things are moving in the right direction.
The poll was conducted on Feb. 9 and 10, surveying 1,791 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.

Not only does it look like she's given up on her appearance, but her entire demeanor has changed. She's not arguing back, deflecting, or talking over him as she normally does.
Additionally, she's also not really defending Trump that much. In fact, she seems to even throw Trump under the bus a few times by responding with lines like, "I'm just telling you what he told me," as though she just wants to wash her hands clean all of it.
Has she given up? Is she on her way out?

Former House Speaker John Boehner (Orange Tan) made a surprising prediction on Thursday: Republicans won't "repeal and replace" Obamacare, a signature campaign pledge for years.
"Congressional Republicans are going to fix Obamacare – I shouldn't call it repeal-and-replace, because it's not going to happen," Boehner told an Orlando health care conference, Politico reported.
"I started laughing… Republicans never, ever agree on health care," the former speaker continued.
"Most of the framework of the Affordable Care Act… that's going to be there," Boehner said, using the formal name for Obamacare.
Boehner resigned in 2015, after a long period of disagreements with his conference's hardline conservatives.

Not everyone is happy about Yale’s decision to rename Calhoun College from a slaveowner and white supremacist to a feminist icon, Rear Adm. Grace Murray Hopper. The loudest outcry comes not from anyone wishing to preserve history, but from the Yale Women’s Center, which claims that choosing a white woman ignores Yale’s history of slavery and perpetuates white supremacy.
The university organization is displeased that Yale chose the accomplished alumna and computer science pioneer instead of a woman of color. On Facebook (via Yale Daily News), the center said the choice of Hopper doesn’t reflect the issues and values raised by Yale students.
In the self-contradicting post, the center said that while they were “happy with the decision,” and hoped Hopper would inspire future generations of women in STEM education, it wasn’t good enough. They declared it an “act of whitewashing” that “silenced” student voices.
“We had hoped for a name change that acknowledged the years of activism by students of color and New Haven activists. We feel the decision to change the name from a white supremacist to a white woman, as amazing as she may be, is an act of whitewashing.”
It went on: “[T]he decision to rename the college after another white person seems like an attempt to end this discussion on the history of white supremacy and its active and continued role in this institution and on our campus.”
A PR person for the women’s center, Vicki Beizer, told the student newspaper that the administration let them down by ignoring names that would have “carried the dialogue further,” and that “renaming the college after a white woman doesn’t put the cork in the bottle.”
Members of the organization also published an op-ed for the Daily to argue that “white femininity has often been used as a tool to enforce racist and colonialist structures,” and that naming the college after Hopper was a “continuous perpetuation of white supremacy.”
And Yale thought they were being SO clever using a female admiral to throw racist and colonialist structures and the military-industrial complex into the faces of the downtrodden Yale poetry and womens study majors.

Straight Dope Primes the Pump:
"Are there any famous people who have suddenly, voluntarily, and so completely vanished from public life that no fan or journalist has ever been able to track them down?
"The prototypical example I'm thinking of is Deep Purple and Captain Beyond singer Rod Evans. He involved himself in an unauthorized Deep Purple "reunion" tour in 1980, got sued, and then completely disappeared from public life. There have been rumours that he got a medical degree and became a hospital director in California, though AFAIK no journalist has ever succeeded in finding him to confirm this. His whereabouts since 1980 have been a complete mystery to the public.
"Are there any other cases comparable to that of Rod Evans? Note that I'm not talking about famous people, like Bill Watterson, whose whereabouts are known but who nowadays usually decline to give interviews or attend public events. Nor am I talking about people like Glenn Miller or Jimmy Hoffa who were probably killed in an accident, in a crime, or in combat. I'm talking about people who are widely believed to be alive and well but who cannot be tracked down despite active efforts on the part of their fans or the media."

Met this great guy. I'm 32, he's 23. Pursued me for 2 years. Didn't give him the time of day. Last month, I finally stopped running and gave in. We hung out a couple of time, and he professed his love to me. I'm an INFP, and he, an ENTJ. He is hung and as thick as a barrel (for visual's sake), and he's a decent and reliable guy.
A few weeks ago, he was carjacked when he and his family were coming from a meeting. The robbers made away with only laptops in the car. Uncle was shot and killed. The meeting, curiously, was held to talk about family finances and some siphoning that was going on. Uncle raised the misappropriation questions. They suspect people in the family didn't like his line of questioning, so they offed him. Laptops contained family business details, and guy thinks they were after this.
I swear, this actually happened. I decided to cut things off with him because I fear for my safety. They may come back for him since he's now overseeing the family business on the finance and management front. Did I make the right decision? Should I stay with him and try to navigate these murky waters? My main concern is safety and security, and nothing else...the both of 'uses', but more so mine.

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough was a guest Tuesday night on Colbert's “Late Show” and he seemed eager to explain the decision to ban President Trump's White House counselor from his show last week.
“It got to a point where Kellyanne would keep coming out and everything she said was disproven like five minutes later,” Scarborough said. “And it wasn't disproven by a fact-checker — it was somebody else in the administration that would come out and actually say well, actually no, that's not true.”
“There's a quicker way to say that entire sentence,” Colbert replied. “She just lied.”
Scarborough, a former Republican congressman from Florida, is the host of “Morning Joe.” Co-host Mika Brzezinski said earlier this month that Conway tries to book herself on the show, but “I won't do it, 'cause I don't believe in fake news or information that is not true. … Every time I've seen her on television, something's askew, off, or incorrect.”
[Kellyanne Conway’s ‘Bowling Green massacre’ wasn’t a slip of the tongue. She has said it before.]
Conway was the person who ushered the phrase “alternative facts” into the popular American lexicon. It was January on “Meet the Press” and host Chuck Todd was pressing her on why the White House press secretary made easily disproved claims about the size of Trump's inauguration crowd.

On Saturday, members of the DNC will gather to choose their leader. With the party in shambles in statehouses across the country, and with Republicans entrenched in the White House and Congress, the DNC race has been a charged and closely observed affair, drawing the attention of everyone from grassroots activists to former President Barack Obama. At stake is whether Dems, humbled by their recent losses, are prepared to relinquish some control to the newly empowered progressive wing of the party—and underneath a veneer of unity, it looks like that’s the last thing they want to do.
The two frontrunners, Keith Ellison and Tom Perez, have been plunged into a primary-like showdown, whether they like it or not. Ellison, a congressman from Minnesota, has been endorsed by leaders across the Democratic spectrum, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, John Lewis, and Chuck Schumer. He has captured the support of young progressives, with over 200 millennial leaders signing a letter backing his bid. He is a black Muslim with working class roots, an ideal combination for a party that champions diversity and economic equality. Perez, Obama’s former secretary of labor, reportedly entered the race after being prodded by Obama’s White House. He has been endorsed by former Joe Biden and Eric Holder.
Perez supporters are quick to emphasize that, as “the most liberal member of Obama’s cabinet,” he is just as progressive as his opponent. When Sanders stated that Perez would represent the same “failed status-quo” approach, Dems hit back. One Clinton ally told the Hill, “Perez and Ellison are cut from the same progressive cloth. Either one would be a strong leader.” Most Dems, including voting members of the DNC, seem to feel good about both candidates—a Hill poll found that Ellison and Perez both lead in second-choice preferences.
The differences between Perez and Ellison are minimal. Perez’s perceived qualities could easily be switched out for Ellison’s. In his endorsement, Holder said of Perez, “We need a DNC chair who is a proven fighter and a proven uniter. Tom Perez is that person.” Well, Ellison, who spent decades as an organizer before entering national politics, is running on a unity platform. Perez has also cast himself as a “progressive who gets things done.” Well, Ellison has a record of doing just what many in the Democratic Party want from their DNC chair—winning elections, increasing turnout, and raising small-dollar donations.
This is also why the case for Tom Perez makes no sense. If Perez is like Ellison—in both his politics and ideology—why bother fielding him in the first place?
There is one real difference between the two: Ellison has captured the support of the left wing. Ellison backed Sanders early in his primary race against Hillary Clinton, and was one of the first candidates to announce his bid for DNC chair. His election would generate goodwill from Sanders supporters—or, to put it another way, would avoid the enmity that would surely result from a Perez win. In the Huffington Post, one Ellison supporter put it succinctly:
[quote]“Keith Ellison had incredible support from the quote-unquote establishment side of the party, the progressive side of the party, the grassroots and the elected officials. Nobody was clamoring for another entrance, and yet we got one foisted upon us. If Tom Perez were to win, the message that would send to the grassroots, to labor unions that endorsed Ellison before Tom Perez joined the race, [is] that their voices, their muscle, their enthusiasm and turnout doesn’t matter.”
As Jeff Stein points out at Vox, Sanders supporters may be overstating the power of the DNC chair. But that is all the more reason to throw them a win. If an Ellison victory is just a concession, the upside is that Dems will signal to progressive and younger voters, who Dems will be desperate to turn out in 2018 and 2020, that they are on their side. It would be a choice of utmost pragmatism.

There is no way to reason with the deplorables. It's a given they will vote for Cheeto in four years no matter what.
Sarah Chaulk says she remains “extremely bitter” about how much taxpayer money was spent on President Barack Obama’s travel and family vacations during his time in office.
“When Obama put his dog on Air Force One and then told us to give more to help poor people, it was a slap in the face to the entire country,” Chaulk, 60, a graphic designer from Columbus, Ohio, said on Wednesday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the marquee annual gathering for conservative activists.
Her friend Elaine Kent, 58, chimed in: “And when Michelle Obama and her friends went to Spain and spent millions of dollars on a vacation? They did so much nickel-and-diming of taxpayers."
They are less concerned — which is to say, not concerned at all — with recent reports that suggest President Trump cost taxpayers nearly as much in his first month in office as Obama did in a year. Their sentiments were widely shared here at CPAC, where attendees gave a wide array of explanations for why they were outraged by Obama’s travel spending but not Trump’s.
[bold]“Mr. Obama went on so many vacations and played golf every week. The news media can say, ‘Trump went to Mar-a-Lago,’ and their hair catches on fire. But if they will look at this honestly — and I’m all for the truth — they’ll see Trump is just using his own resources and money to take care of things,” Chaulk said. “It doesn’t bother me one bit.”[bold]

Jackie Kennedy rejected British suitor's marriage proposal, letters reveal
Letters up for auction show David Ormsby-Gore’s heartache after JFK widow told him she wanted a clean break with her past
Matthew Weaver, Friday 10 February 2017 07.32 EST
Newly discovered letters reveal that Jackie Kennedy came close to marrying Britain’s former ambassador to the US David Ormsby-Gore before spurning him for the shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis.
Ormsby-Gore, who later inherited the title Lord Harlech and who died in 1985, was a friend and key adviser to President John F Kennedy, particularly during the Cuban missile crisis.
The letters were discovered in January in locked cases at the Ormsby-Gore family estate in Talsarnau, Gwynedd, west Wales. They reveal that Ormsby-Gore and Jackie Kennedy developed an attachment based on “love and pain” after the death of their spouses.
They show that Ormsby-Gore proposed to Kennedy shortly after the death of his wife in a car crash in May 1967.
The mostly handwritten correspondence, which is being auctioned next month at Bonhams with a guide price of up to £180,000, includes a note Kennedy sent to Ormsby-Gore explaining that she intended to marry Onassis instead because she wanted a clean break with her past. She wanted to “be with somebody who is not part of all my world of past and pain,” she wrote.
But she also wrote of her continuing affection for Ormsby-Gore. “You are like my beloved brother – and mentor – and the only original spirit I know – as you were to Jack,” she wrote.
A draft letter Ormsby-Gore wrote after his proposal was rejected revealed the lengths to which he was prepared to go to marry Kennedy.
It reads: “All the pathetic plans I had brought with me for visits to Cyrenaica, holidays near one another and a whole variety of solutions to our marriage problem, including one for a secret marriage this summer – plans which I saw us eagerly discussing, calmly and with complete frankness as we did at the Cape and in Cambodia for the next wonderful ten days – all had become irrelevant trash to be thrown away within a few hours of my landing in New York.”
It goes on to reveal his heartache at her decision: “Why do such agonizing things have to happen? Where was the need for it? I have tried for hours and hours to understand your explanation and I suppose I do in a way, without agreeing with it; but what I find unbearable and in a way, dearest Jackie, untrue is that you could come to such a categorical conclusion.”
Ormsby-Gore was appointed ambassador to Washington in 1960. The New York Times said he was close confidant to JFK and advised him on the missile crisis, Vietnam and nuclear disarmament.
When Ormsby-Gore died in 1985, Jackie Onassis attended his funeral.

A crowdfunding project launched by Muslim activists has raised more than $55,000 in one day to repair a vandalised Jewish cemetery in St Louis.
On Tuesday, Linda Sarsour of the grassroots civil rights MPower Change group and Tarek El-Messidi of the non-profit CelebrateMercy organisation called on people to donate after more than 100 headstones at the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery in the St Louis suburb of University City were toppled.
By early Wednesday, at the time of publishing, $55,341 had been raised.
According to reports, police said they did not yet know who was responsible for the vandalism.
"Muslim Americans stand in solidarity with the Jewish American community to condemn this horrific act of desecration," the activists said.
They launched the campaign with a goal to raise $20,000, a target that was hit in three hours.
"Any remaining funds - after the cemetery is restored - will be allocated to repair any other vandalised Jewish centres," the pair said.
The cemetery vandalism came amid rising anti-Semitism in the United States, where Jewish centres have increasingly been targeted with bomb threats.
US President Donald Trump on Tuesday publicly condemned such attacks.
"The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centres are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil," Trump told reporters.
Both Muslim and Jewish communities have expressed fear over rising discrimination in recent months.
After a mosque in Texas burned down in January, Americans raised more than one million dollars for repairs.
The local Jewish community handed those affected the keys to their synagogue so they could continue to worship.
Sarsour and Messidi said that tolerance and mutual protection was a central theme in Islam.
"We hope to send a united message from the Jewish and Muslim communities that there is no place for this type of hate, desecration, and violence in America," they said.
"We pray that this restores a sense of security and peace to the Jewish American community who has undoubtedly been shaken by this event."

French far-right National Front presidential candidate Marine Le Pen canceled a meeting on Tuesday with Lebanon's grand mufti, its top cleric for Sunni Muslims, after refusing to wear a headscarf for the encounter.
Le Pen, among the frontrunners for the presidency, is using a two-day visit to Lebanon to bolster her foreign policy credentials nine weeks from the April 23 first round, and may be partly targeting potential Franco-Lebanese votes.
Many Lebanese fled to France, Lebanon's former colonial power, during their country's 1975-1990 civil war and became French citizens.
After meeting Christian President Michel Aoun - her first public handshake with a head of state - and Sunni Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri on Monday, she had been scheduled to meet the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian
He heads the Dar al-Fatwa, the top religious authority for Sunni Muslims in the multireligious country.

According to a source close to the couple, Presley created a “toxic” home life for 8-year-old Harper and Finley.
“She plays the girls back and forth against their dad,” blasted the source, explaining that “because one looks like Michael and one looks like her, she’ll tell the [one] ‘you’re just like your father.”
Lockwood, continued the source, is desperate for “the girls to have a normal life since they’re so screwed up right now.”
As Radar reported, Presley, 49, and 55-year-old Lockwood are locked in a bitter divorce battle and custody case over Harper and Finley, who are currently in their grandma Priscilla Presley’s care.
The warring exes’ tense split recently came to an explosive head after Presley alleged Lockwood had hundreds of “inappropriate” photos of minors on his computer. He slammed Presley in return, accusing her in court documents of having severe drug problems.
Despite the shocking allegations, the source said Presley can’t be believed and Lockwood and their daughters are the true victims in the end.
“She was horrible,” said the insider. “Those poor things. Mike’s first marriage, his first kids, and he waited so long. He’s just trying to get on with his life, and hopes that she gets it together for the girls’ sake.”

WASHINGTON — President Trump has directed his administration to more aggressively enforce the nation’s immigration laws, unleashing the full force of the federal government to find, arrest and deport those in the country illegally, regardless of whether they have committed serious crimes.
Documents released on Tuesday by the Department of Homeland Security revealed the broad scope of the president’s ambitions: to publicize crimes by immigrants; enlist local police officers as enforcers; strip immigrants of privacy rights; erect new detention facilities; discourage asylum seekers; and, ultimately, speed up deportations.
The new enforcement policies put into practice the fearful speech that Mr. Trump offered on the campaign trail, vastly expanding the definition of “criminal aliens” and warning that such unauthorized immigrants “routinely victimize Americans,” disregard the “rule of law and pose a threat” to people in communities across the United States.
Despite Mr. Trump’s talk, research shows lower levels of crime among immigrants than among native-born Americans.
But taken together, the new policies are a rejection of the sometimes more restrained efforts by former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush and their predecessors, who sought to balance protecting the nation’s borders with fiscal, logistical and humanitarian limits on the exercise of laws passed by Congress.
“The faithful execution of our immigration laws is best achieved by using all these statutory authorities to the greatest extent practicable,” John F. Kelly, the secretary of homeland security, wrote in one of two memorandums released on Tuesday. “Accordingly, department personnel shall make full use of these authorities.”
The immediate impact of that shift is not yet fully known. Advocates for immigrants warned on Tuesday that the new border control and enforcement directives would create an atmosphere of fear that was likely to drive those in the country illegally deeper into the shadows.
Administration officials said some of the new policies — like one seeking to send unauthorized border crossers from Central America to Mexico while they await deportation hearings — could take months to put in effect and might be limited in scope.
For now, so-called Dreamers, who were brought to the United States as young children, will not be targeted unless they commit crimes.
Mr. Trump has not yet said where he will get the billions of dollars needed to pay for thousands of new border control agents, a network of detention facilities to detain unauthorized immigrants and a wall along the entire southern border with Mexico.

Revelation 13King James Version (KJV)
13 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that Michael Lockwood isn’t the only one locked in a bitter battle of words with Lisa Marie Presley!
According to an insider, Presley’s mom, Priscilla, is on the rampage after she was forced to take temporary custody of 8-year-old granddaughters, twins Harper and Finley.
“Lisa Marie is just horrible and Priscilla is pissed off at her for doing all this,” sniped the source, calling Elvis’ daughter “such a drama queen.”
As Radar reported, the twins were put into Priscilla’s care after what the 71-year-old star deemed the “commotion” surrounding her daughter’s accusations that Lockwood had “hundreds” of inappropriate photos stored on his computer.
“What Lisa Marie’s putting the girls through and stuff [is terrible],” scoffed the source, “and it’s all her own doing.”
“She was so screwed up on drugs and every time we tried to help she would threaten to divorce Mike,” added the source, who insisted the seedy accusations 49-year-old Presley lobbed at her former spouse were “all lies.”
On Feb. 22, Presley and Lockwood, 55, squared off in divorce court, where, in the latest chapter in their ongoing bitter split saga, his attorneys requested legal costs and monthly support of $40,000. Lockwood’s lawyer argued that Presley had lied about her income.
The two will next appear before a judge on Mar. 1 for a custody hearing concerning the fate of their daughters.

‘Last Night in Sweden’? Trump’s Remark Baffles a Nation
LONDON — Swedes reacted with confusion, anger and ridicule on Sunday to a vague remark by President Trump that suggested that something terrible had occurred in their country.
During a campaign-style rally on Saturday in Florida, Mr. Trump issued a sharp if discursive attack on refugee policies in Europe, ticking off a list of places that have been hit by terrorists.
“You look at what’s happening,” he told his supporters. “We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?”
Not the Swedes.
Nothing particularly nefarious happened in Sweden on Friday — or Saturday, for that matter — and Swedes were left baffled.
Continue reading the main story RELATED COVERAGE
Trump Returns to Campaign Trail After a Month in Office FEB. 18, 2017
Fact Check: What Trump Got Wrong at His Rally FEB. 18, 2017 “Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound,” Carl Bildt, a former prime minister and foreign minister, wrote on Twitter.
Mr. Trump did not state, per se, that a terrorist attack had taken place in Sweden.
But the context of his remarks — he mentioned Sweden right after he chastised Germany, a destination for refugees and asylum seekers fleeing war and deprivation — suggested that he thought it might have.
“Sweden,” he said. “They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing. So we’re going to keep our country safe.”
Contrary to Mr. Trump’s allegations, nearly all of the men involved in terrorist assaults in Paris on Nov. 13, 2015, in Brussels on March 22 last year, and in Nice, France, on July 14, were citizens of France or Belgium.
As the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet noted, Twitter users were quick to ridicule Mr. Trump’s remark, with joking references to the Swedish Chef, the “Muppets” character; Swedish meatballs; and Ikea, the furniture giant.
Others speculated that Mr. Trump might have been influenced by a Fox News interview of Ami Horowitz, a filmmaker who asserts that migrants in Sweden have been associated with a crime wave, by the correspondent Tucker Carlson. “They often times try to cover up some of these crimes,” Mr. Horowitz said, arguing that those who try to tell the truth about the situation are shouted down as racists and xenophobes.

Steve Antin must have lusted after Josh Brolin. I wonder if he ever made a pass at him. A shame what Steve did to his face. I didn't realize he was Rick Springfield's Jessie's Girl video.

He's featured on the reality show "So Cosmo" on E! that no one is watching about working at Cosmo. He's both bland and cunty at the same time. He seems to think he's very important. The first line says it all. Here's how E! describes him:
"When he's not busy taking selfies for Instagram, Steven is responsible for hiring all the models, hair stylists and makeup artists for every photo shoot from cover to cover. He even booked supermodel Kate Upton for her first U.S. women's magazine cover with Cosmo."

Is there a name for this? I've seen this referenced. Apparently there are gay men who have a fetish for straight roleplaying. They're gay but enjoy fucking women from time to time, playing the masc role.

When they are standing at the top of the aisle on their wedding day and they watch their bride to be walking up the aisle toward them, what do they think? Is there any part of them thinking this is s bad idea; feelings of any guilt knowing they are being deceptive to their new wife or any regrets denying their true sexuality. What is going on in their heads at that moment?

James O'Keefe, most memorably seen in a mugshot on the front page of The New York Times, promises to begin a Wikileaks-style dump of hundreds of hours of CNN behind the scenes tomorrow.
Who at CNN should be the most nervous.....if anyone should be concerned at all.
O'Keefe's followers, all deplorables, are acting as if CNN will be off the air by evening.
If the person being recorded was unaware of the tape, isn't that grounds for a lawsuit against the staff member who must have signed some sort of disclosure agreement?

A Vancouver man was denied entry into the United States after a US Customs and Border Patrol officer read his profiles on the gay hookup app Scruff and the website BBRT.
The officer suspected the man was a sex worker because he found messages from the man saying he was “looking for loads.”
André, a 30-year-old Vancouver set decorator who declined to give his full name for fear of retaliation from US Customs, describes the experience as “humiliating.”
André says he was planning to visit his boyfriend, who was working in New Orleans. But when he was going through Customs preclearance at Vancouver airport last October, he was selected for secondary inspection, where an officer took his phone, computer and other possessions, and demanded the passwords for his devices.
“I didn’t know what to do. I was scared, so I gave them the password and then I sat there for at least an hour or two. I missed my flight,” André says. “He came back and just started grilling me. ‘Is this your email?’ and it was an email attached to a Craigslist account for sex ads. He asked me, ‘Is this your account on Scruff? Is this you on BBRT?’ I was like, ‘Yes, this is me.’”
When the officer asked him what he meant by “looking for loads,” André says he tried to explain, but the officer kept grilling him.
“I could tell just by his nature that he had no intentions of letting me through. They were just going to keep asking me questions looking for something.” he says.
A month later, André attempted to fly to New Orleans again. This time, he brought what he thought was ample proof that he was not a sex worker: letters from his employer, pay stubs, bank statements, a lease agreement and phone contracts to prove he intended to return to Canada.
When he went through secondary inspection at Vancouver airport, US Customs officers didn’t even need to ask for his passwords — they were saved in their own system. André had wiped his phone of sex apps and browser history, thinking that would dispel any suggestion he was looking for sex work. Instead, the border officers took that as suspicious.
“They went through my computer. They were looking through Word documents,” André says. “I had nude photos of myself on my phone, and they were questioning who this person was.”
“They said, ‘Next time you come through, don’t have a cleared phone,’ and that was it. I wasn’t let through. He said I’m a suspected escort,” he says.
André says he lost at least $1200 on non-refundable flights and hotels on the two cancelled trips.
Non-Americans have few options when they’re at the border. While Americans have an absolute right of entry into the country, they can still be detained or have their electronic devices seized.
For Esha Bhandari, staff attorney for the speech privacy and technology project at the American Civil Liberties Union, this presents a host of civil rights issues.
“Thus far, CBP has asserted a very broad authority to search visitors to the United States,” she says. “There aren’t a lot of cases testing the limits of that, especially in this new digital context.”
“For Scruff members traveling to a country that may demand access to profiles and social media apps before entry, simply deleting the app and reinstalling upon re-entry is always an option,” says Scruff CEO Eric Silverberg. “Scruff synchronizes your profile to the cloud, so after reinstalling you may login to regain access to your messages, favourites, albums, etc.”
“That said, the best defense against unwarranted searches and seizures by the government is to work to elect leaders who share these ideals and values,” Silverberg says.
Because US Customs operates on Canadian soil to provide preclearance at many Canadian airports, issues of Canadian Charter rights are also at play. The Canadian government has introduced a bill to implement an agreement reached under Harper and Obama that would greatly expand US Customs’ power to detain, question and strip-search people in Canada trying to enter the United States.
The Canadian Civil Liberties Association is reviewing the bill.

Surely I'm not the only gay man who collected the in-store playlists for Gap stores while he worked there? I worked for Gap from 1992 to 2006, and each month, a new CD (or cassette pre-1998) would arrive to play in the stores for the designated month. Along with it came a playlist with all of the songs and artists listed in order (each CD or tape was a full four hours),
I loved the music and I would keep the paper playlists for each month that I worked there, using them to build my music collection. So many different styles throughout the years, with a great selection of Nineties music, both well-known and obscure.
In February 2006, I lost the box that I kept the playlists in. I later found a cache of duplicates that I had stored away, and with that, I began the work of reconstructing each month for the years I worked for Gap. I had already been buying music since 1992 and putting the songs into folders but I had not gotten around to making full-on playlists for every month.
I'm looking for scans or photos of any Gap in-store playlists from 1992 to March 2006. I buy my songs from iTunes, and, if they are not available there, I buy used CDs; NO illegal downloading at all. Nor is there advertising on my site, so this is not "advertising" or trying to get clicks. I'm just trying to make my playlist collection complete.
The site shows how to contact me if ANYONE is able to help me out.
1992 was really great with all kinds of House music, endless Annie Lennox, and the beginning of the resurgence of Disco!
