Breitbart writer John Carney is very upset. You see, he was all excited for Vogue’s 125th anniversary issue, eagerly anticipating the treasures he might find within — only to discover that one of the four covers of the issue featuring Jennifer Lawrence was a DIRECT ATTACK against him and his fellow conservatives.

What could be so very terrible about this cover, you wonder? What on earth about Jennifer Lawrence, a white lady from Kentucky, riding on a boat by the Statue of Liberty, could possibly be so offensive to John Carney that he needs to start his own fashion magazine? Well, let’s take a CLOSER look, shall we!

Ah yes, that’s it right there!

Just kidding. I made that one up myself, in case you could not tell. Actually, what Carney is upset about is the inclusion of the Statue of Liberty on the cover, because the Statue of Liberty is offensive to Conservatives. Because of how much she likes immigration, and is a woman.

Carney then explained that it was all CONTEXTUAL because it was released after that time Stephen Miller thought that “The New Colossus” was written after the statue was erected (it was actually written before, in order to raise money to build the statue).

Of course, the thing with the way fashion magazines work is that this cover would have been shot at least three months before. Not knowing this could be a hindrance to Carney when he takes over the fashion industry.

Carney also suggested that perhaps Breitbart should get in on the fashion stuff, because women would be super into that.

Oh yeah, for sure. Can totally see it. Breitbart Fashion: For Women Who Also Think Women Are Stupid.

Later, Carney cited the Left’s “reaction” to his tweet as proof that there was, indeed, a conspiracy at Vogue to hurt his feelings and make him feel like they think immigrants are better than him.

After Vogue Communications director Zara Rahim explained to him that they shot the cover in June, because the September issue is pretty important, Carney tried to say that he was just teasing, but also that he was serious because when did they decide to use it as the cover, huh?

It’s honestly kind of fascinating, though, to see the way these people think. Like, they cannot wrap their heads around why black people might be offended by them saying the n-word or might not want them to touch their hair or might not like getting murdered by police on the regular, but OH MY GOD THE STATUE OF LIBERTY IS ON THE COVER OF THE ANNIVERSARY ISSUE OF A NEW YORK CITY BASED MAGAZINE OH GOD WHY ARE THEY HURTING US SO?

I am also curious about what this Shadow #MAGA Cultural Industry will entail. Are they going to sing? God, I hope so. I hope they do a Breitbart Cabaret and Fashion Show, because that would be endlessly entertaining.

Also endlessly entertaining? THIS, your OPEN THREAD!

    “How to dress without justifying rape.”

    “How to dress without justifying your own murder by a guy who believes you friend zoned him.”

      Anyhoo, Brietbart should ask her to be the inaugural model for their new fashion mag. Maybe a similar pose, in front of the Statue of Liberty with a few Filthy Mexican kids in chains off to the side, and a rifle in her hands.

        I wasn’t going to pay him or anything. Just thought it would be a better use of his time to pull weeds than whine about stupid shit. Actually if we survive the week I may have time to do it this weekend. And I’ll try to do my leftism shopping online.

    Are they just looking for stuff to get mad about now? This is so ridiculous; I think the less said about all of it, the better. And also too, you can say a lot of things about “leftists,” but one thing no one says is that they’re subtle. They’d be unlikely to go to all the trouble, in JUNE, of dreaming up a cover that only a select few would “recognize” as “contextual” bias and taking sides in the Miller v. Acosta fight in support of immigration.

    I feel stupider having even just typed all of that out. The mental gymnastics involved would score a 10.0 even from the Russian judge.

      • ltmcdies

        isn’t it though….

      • jesterpunk

        He is building up more proof so he cant be tried for treason. The law says

        Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

        So his claim is going to be he never owed allegiance to the US, only to himself and Putin.

    We don’t need to ask whether Pence is making contingency plans, because he quite plainly is. A better question would be whether he’s taking active steps to turn his self-serving motives for joining the ticket into a self-fulfilling prophecy. And the best question is whether Pence is too tainted by his obsequious enabling of Trump to ever enjoy the spoils of Trump’s demise.

  • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

    So apparently some Nevada Republicans have decided that since they can’t win an election, they’ll abuse the recall petition process to try and remove a Democratic politician for her defeated Republican opponent.

    Former Republican Assemblyman Stephen Silberkraus is spearheading an effort to recall Democratic State Sen. Joyce Woodhouse and replace her with her Republican opponent in the 2016 election, Carrie Buck.

    A one-page notice of intent to recall Woodhouse filed Aug. 2 offers no insight as to why Silberkraus and two other Henderson residents — Chelyn Sawyer and David Satory — intend to circulate a recall petition. But a recall committee established by Silberkraus to fund the effort states that its purpose is to “recall Senator Joyce Woodhouse and replace her with Buck.”

    • BreakingDeadMen

      They are trying that in OC, too.

    • BadKitty904

      I’d love to see the Dems use the recall process to remove GOP criminal in Congress and in state legislatures.

    Re: The back and forth with Donnie and Kimmie; I once got into a territorial dispute with a howler monkey. It was a somewhat ordered back and forth where he would jump up and down on his branch and, well, howl at me, then glare while I took my turn to jump up and down under the tree and yell back at him. (Alcohol was involved.) The back and forth with North Korea sounds just like that, maybe without so much of the subtle courtesies. The monkey would always stop to give me my turn and never interrupted, and never once threatened me with annihilation. Even so, that was the last time I ever drank with a howler monkey.

    so…work has been…”fun”.
    we managed to get 140 pieces of a new part out in about 4 days.
    I wrote the program on Saturday, got tools set up and started running it on Monday.
    changes were made and the first part that was actually made to the specifications (most measurements were +/- .005″, to put that in perspective, a sheet of notebook paper or a hair on your head is about .003″).
    hand load and frequent issues slowed it down.
    the part that really chaps my hide, the people in the offices took an actual order from a prospective customer for these parts to be made and laser etched with the build information to be delivered in 2 weeks. on a part that we’ve never made before at all.
    I would say I’m so very glad it’s over, but I’m afraid it’s just begun.

    • Beanz&Berryz

      Congrats!

      • mancityRed6

        apparently, these are needed pieces and our only cost is the manufacture and then laser etch, no building necessary.

          • mancityRed6

            you’d think so, but I started having lovely problems this morning with a process that had been running fine for at least 40 or 50 hours.
            changes were made, it became adequate again.
            honestly, the biggest problem was making a 2.1″ hole with a .9″ drill.

      That story was repeated on some facebook site where a woman who claimed to be a former sex worker and mentioned (over and over again) that she had a masters degree chastised everyone for calling Moronia names. I of course did NOT call her an escort. An escort has sex for money in the privacy of a bedroom. A porn star has sex for money in front of a camera. There is a difference. At that point the former sex worker with the masters degree told me She met a lot of sailors and unlike me those sailors were sweet. I told her nobody was interested in what she did for a living, then I blocked her.

    This morning, I represented someone on an invalid license charge. She was driving a company-owned vehicle and the dumbfuck cop decided that meant she was driving a “commercial vehicle.” The intern from the prosecutor’s office was inclined to agree. I told her precisely which statutes to look at.
    “The cop already explained it to me.”
    “Cop? The fucking cop? I’m telling you to read the statute. It is crystal clear. The cop is full of shit. If I slap a Boeing sticker on my car door, do I have to have a fucking pilot’s license? Read the statute.”
    “But. . .”
    “You’ve got a 221 license. The Supreme Court says you can practice law. You’re a lawyer. Act like one. We don’t let cops interpret the law for us. You’re the lawyer.”

    Her eyes got huge. I don’t think she’d ever fully considered that she is (for the most part) a lawyer.

      I had to be a witness in a few civil trials for the agency where I worked. We contracted with a law firm with a good sized stable of attorneys. Occasionally if they thought a case was a slam dunk, they’d send out a (very) young associate to get some experience.
      The City was being sued over a business license we approved. The plaintiff’s dildo attorney was suing us ANYWAY for some reason I don’t recall..
      Contract law firm sent out a young man who must have done exceptionally well at the State’s Mock Trial Competition for high school students.
      It was fine entertainment watching an ancient, querulous judge take turns berating BOTH attorneys (“Why did you ask her that? You already asked her that?” “Why are we here again? Tell me why we’re here again?”)

      I was a prosecutor for three years at the start of my career. Hardest thing for young lawyers is not getting all badge happy and trying to fit in with the cop frat. I had a good boss who made sure we all understood the police worked for us, and not the other way around. Of course having young people in their late twenties walking around with all that raw power is a problem in itself but, that’s another story….

      • UncleTravelingMatt

        I interned for a Prosecutor, spent a year as a deputy for him, and drifted in and out of that same office as a Special Prosecutor for a couple years. That office had been badly burned by the Sheriff’s office on multiple occasions (the SO had a couple of detectives in sex crimes and narc that liked to hide Brady material) so the office police was “don’t trust the cops.” One of the first things he told me was, “cops like to think of everything as ‘their’ case; once someone is arraigned, it’s our case.” Seems a lot of prosecutors never get that message.

    The message is loud and clear. There is NO tech job for me. EVER. Thirty years ago I could pull down one after another. Today, ZILCH..

    Well, at least I still have the file clerk gig at the bank, right? Well, first hints of trouble today. Supervisor told me to move several big, heavy boxes of docs. I carried and huffed and puffed and got the first few out. Then she pulls me aside and said “Look, please let us know if we ask you to do something too strenuous. In a couple weeks we’re going to get over two hundred boxes in here and we have to move them.” I told her no, no, I’m fine, I’ll do it, don’t worry. But it brought back flashbacks. As a teenager, I lost jobs because I was too physically frail to do the work. I spent years and years in gyms trying to build up strength and could never seem to get anywhere. Now I have visions of losing the one job anyone will let me do. I’m going to have to do some real eating and see if I can’t hold my own.

        • Cousin Itt de La Résistance

          So that’s his Modi operandus?

        • hudson srinivasan

          i’ve not voted in india since college. but i do follow issues. abd during his campaign i was not a supporter even as an outsider. mainly because I am vary of the BJP base (similar to trump/gop base) but not because of his role GJ riots.

          the 2002 GJ riots are complex. it started with burning of 60+ hindus in a train bogie. then days later there was riot. ~700 muslims and ~300 died.

          Much of the riots were organized and planned. And right-wing groups were responsible for it. And from the muslim side, the initial attack on train was clearly organized and perhaps some of the counter retaliation.

          But from admin perspective, Modi seems to have done all the things. He requested central forces immediately. He requested additional support from neighboring states.

          This is standard protocol for states in india. communal riots used to be pretty common in urban india and this is the standard response. But in this GJ case, all the neighboring states refused help and the center delayed help – all of these were co-incidentally led by the congress party at that time.

          In any case several inquires and cases later, even at the supreme court level, Modi himself has been acquitted of any dereliction of duty. but he will always carry that blame.

          There have been several convictions on that riot. and also several of the high profile cases have been exposed to be frauds.

          it’s a mixed bag.

          in general hindu muslim relation in india are complicated. but healthier than any other country in the neighborhood and any other country with as complex as history of grievances and relationships.

          • h4rr4r

            He delayed for 3 days, even his supporters agree with that.

          • hudson srinivasan

            baseline reference to GJ are the sundry riots in hubli, hyderabad, meerut, mumbai, madras etc. etc. the rate at which these explode, you have no idea. my family has lived 70+ years in hubli. during 80s and 90s was declared the most communal town in all of india. you know why the violence started? because the city municipality was not allowed to fly the national flag in a yard in the city center that was usurped as a prayer ground. the range of problems that exist is mind boggling.

            these typws of problems are pretty common. you exhaust state capacities. which by the way is jealously apartisan. there are even versions of personal laws that are different for muslims, hindus and christians. not my case to make, these things have been litigated in the highest courts in india.

          • hudson srinivasan

            h4rr4r, my response has gone missing. prolly under review or something. i’ll wait.

          • h4rr4r

            I see it.

            I found it enlightening. However I also think these things should be considered a national embarrassment. India has come very far with its reforms but these events do not speak to that.

            Nevermind the currency issues. That was such poor planning it almost seemed intentionally designed to hurt the poorest.

          • hudson srinivasan

            it is a national embarrassment. No denying that. And that is why nobody has had the balls to repeat it in 15 years. Some sort of perverse example it has turned out to be.

            prolly the longest india has gone without an incidence.

          • hudson srinivasan

            currency, i beg to differ. that was a good thing. the level of black money in the hands of elite that was neutralized was amazing. plus lot of balls to make an entire country go through so much pain. he may or not win a second term, but atleast he made a dent.

  • Angela Ruzzo

    I is feeling bad. I went out weed whacking yesterday and two baby mockingbirds at the hop-but-can’t-fly stage were hiding in the tall grass and I whacked them. One was OK and hopped away. The other wasn’t but was still alive and not visibly wounded, so I put it back in its nest last night and this morning it was dead. I is a baby bird murderer. The lesson here is CHECK THE GRASS before you whack it if there are birds nesting in a tree 6 feet away.

    • DrBigHead

      We had a pair of mockingbirds that nested in our bougainvillea for years. Loved to hear their evolving song as they added elements to their repertoire. That ended when we adopted a dog with a taste for poultry. After a couple of failed broods, they moved on.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        I got 2 baby ducks for Easter one year when I was 7. Kept them in a cardboard box on the front porch until they got tall enough to peek over the box, when the neighbor’s dog bit their heads off. Stupid dog left the heads laying on the porch, and I was so traumatized I couldn’t sleep for a week. I think this might have been when my distaste for dogs began.

            I got a duckling for Easter when I was 2 or 3. Took it over to show the neighbors and we put it in a bucket of water and it swam around and I forgot it and it drownded.

            My dad and his brother did the same thing, with several ducklings and a kiddie pool. He never got over it.

      I had a junko nest under a corner of an overturned kiddy pool in my yard one year. Fortunately we saw the nest before I disrupted it. There was a dirty plastic pool with a large patch of unmown grass around it until the junkos decided to grow up and fly away.

    Good News Science Time!

    Growing human transplant organs in pigs has become a more realistic prospect after scientists used advanced gene editing to remove threatening viruses from the animals’ DNA.

    As someone who will eventually need a heart valve transplant, this is very good news. However, the medical science nerds may not fully appreciate the level of comedy they have created.

    Porcine endogenous retroviruses (Pervs) are permanently embedded in the pig genome but research has shown they can infect human cells, posing a potential hazard. The existence of Pervs has been a major stumbling block preventing the development of genetically engineered pigs to provide kidneys and other organs for transplant into human patients.

    That hurdle may now have been cleared, according to new research reported in the journal Science.

    On the other hand, if I am turned into a Perv, it would be redundant.

    From Raw Story:

    Texas is moving toward a plan that could see women buy insurance coverage for abortions after a House vote derided by critics as “ridiculous and cruel.” The GOP-controlled House voted 95-51 Tuesday in favor of restricting abortion coverage in health insurance, under a rule that would ban coverage in private health insurance and force women to pay an additional supplement if they want coverage for the procedure. If House Bill 214 is enacted, it will come into force at the beginning of December this year. It makes no allowances for women who have abortions after being victims of rape or incest, Reuters reported.

    “Women and parents will be faced with the horrific decision of having to purchase ‘rape insurance’ to cover them if they are victimized,” Democratic Representative Chris Turner said a statement. “This is not only ridiculous, but it is cruel,” he added.

    Some lawmakers who voted in favor of the bill claimed it was a financial decision, rather than a moral or religious one. Their votes bring Texas a step closer to becoming the 11th state to make abortion coverage a supplement in private health insurance plans.

    “It’s a question of economic freedom and freedom in general,” said the bill’s sponsor, GOP Representative John Smithee. Smithee said he believed supplemental coverage for abortion would cost women between $12 and $80 per year.

    “This isn’t about who can get an abortion. It is about who is forced to pay for an abortion,” he said.

    A number of women lawmakers challenged the measure.

    Democratic Representative Ina Minjarez said the bill hurts women already struggling to get by. “In Texas, women earn less, are paid unequally and lack childcare or paid family leave laws,” Minjarez said. “That’s why the economic impact of having a child is the number one factor women consider when making this incredibly difficult and personal decision.”

    Democratic Representative Donna Howard asked Smithee whether a young girl who was raped and became pregnant should have to pay for an abortion. “We’re discussing taking the life of the innocent little baby because of something the baby had nothing to do with,” Smithee responded.

      “The seven-page document, which eventually landed on the president’s desk…”

      If it is seven pages long there isn’t a chance in hell President Trump read it.

      But, it’s the fucking “conservatives'” fault that the Statue of Liberty is controversial in the first place, what with their bigotry, and the xenophobia

      It’s supposed to be settled that America is welcoming to immigrants, since NEARLY ALL OF US ARE IMMIGRANTS or children of immigrants, excepting obviously the remaining indigenous peoples

      These frauds specialize in creating controversy then playing victim when people call them on it. Fuck that shit.

      We will be true to thee till death!

      Our fathers, chained in prisons dark,

      3
      Faith of our fathers, we will strive
      To win all nations unto thee;
      And through the truth that comes from God
      Mankind shall then indeed be free.
      Faith of our fathers! holy faith!
      We will be true to thee till death!
      4
      Faith of our fathers, we will love
      Both friend and foe in all our strife,

    • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

      from the ACTUAL poll:

      “The President’s approval rating has rebounded somewhat since our July poll. Following a series of disastrous weeks, Trump’s approval numbers have moved up slightly, especially among his base and a few other sub-groups not known for their support of the president.”

      “This was also the case with Hispanics voters and their overall numbers; Trump saw one the biggest improvements among any sub-group with Hispanics; his approval increased 11% to 42% approval versus 55% who disapprove of Trump’s job as president.”

      That, to me, sounds like a damn error.

      while NASCAR fans-58% approve/37% disapprove and Weekly Walmart shoppers-55% approve/43% disapprove. Trump’s approval ratings remained highest among both these unique sub-groups which have traditionally given him higher approval ratings, while Trump’s numbers also increased significantly among union voters from 43% approval to 51% approval in August.

      • alwayspunkindrublic

    ****** TODAY AT BARNES AND NOBLE *******

    A young white couple walks up to the counter. The wife is cute and petite, the husband tall and slim. With them is the cutest little baby (okay not Wonkette baby cute, but really cute) anyone has ever seen. They look at each other lovingly and exchange pleasant small talk with the cashier. It is a wonderful piece of Americana that could almost be painted by Norman Rockwell.

    They place their purchase on the counter and it is that wonderful tear-jerking children’s book, “I’ll Love you Forever”. You could just eat all of them up, from the unbelievable cuteness they are exuding. It’s a wonderful moment. Then dad places his purchase on the counter …
    … a brand-spanking new copy of, “Mein Kampf”.

    Suddenly you notice that Dad has a shaved head, with no visible tattoos, but then, who knows what fresh Hell might be tramp-tamped on his butt. Yes, my friends, this actually happened. Welcome to the new America.

    Legal Wonkers, does anyone out there think I can help my daughter’s friend get legally emancipated? Her situation has been terrible for years but the newest wrinkle is that her dad and stepmom are about to lose their house and might have to move in with her grandparents, along with her 3 younger step- and half-siblings, including a baby and another one on the way. I’m thinking the “parents” wouldn’t at this point object to allowing her to be emancipated right away (she’s going to be 18 in 10 months anyway). She has a job and I’m willing to vouch for being her “landlady” charging her rent instead of just being a friend she’s staying with. (As a note, her “parents” have previously confiscated her earnings because she’s a minor and that’s legal here and also they’ve made her quit working before to stay home and babysit the continual spew of offspring they can’t seem to figure out how to stop producing.)

They stayed through whatever bullshit they had to deal with. I still keep spare toothbrushes and such on hand and the tootsiepop is in her late 30’s!

      Both Mr. S. and i loved them as our own and hopefully meant something to them although one ended up taking his own life. I wish you luck, it’s unfortunately normal but still hard.

      Over the years we adopted one hard-to-adopt child, had three foreign exchange students, five legal but non-paying foster children, and several “drop ins” that needed refuge for short periods of time. One of our fosters went through emancipation but it was a long court battle and we and parents came close to blows even though we wanted to stay out of it and just provide shelter. It’s a tough situation.

      Rearing our own children was all the great and tough times that your own children can be; rearing other people’s children when parents are lawyering up against both them and you can add some fretful experience. I wish you patience and luck.

It was just sitting there in a big room with a bunch of other art. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9c057c540236619b7a3c2329a11a030dacd6c4f5785ea5676e661098f3a476f4.jpg

    Is this still the War on Women, or is it just War on Everything now?

    • Cousin Itt de La Résistance

      Seems more like a War on Anything. Nothing to inane and uncontroversial to go into a heaving flop-sweat rage-gasm.

      • TJ Barke

        It’s a war on American values.

      Trumpiania has always been at war with women.

    Yours Snarkily and FlownYounger got to go up into the crown shortly after it was reopened. Memorable view of a great city with an undeniable history of immigrants’ contributions. Also, incidentally, an excellent place from which to say “Intercourse yourself, John Carney.” [Well, actually, anyplace would be good for that.]

    Kitten sitting update: she’s found the siege engines:

    (… she’ll be bringing all its might to bear against the refrigerator shortly, I figure.)

      Kibble makes excellent ammo.

        My cat still does this. He’s 20 lbs. Sometimes my daughters will pick him up and just hold him near me until he latches on.

      Prepare for a long, adorable siege.

      This is what happened with dinosaur evolution after the asteroid. Wake up, sheeple!

      Too late.

      They already have too many things to trigger them. Some of them are probably triggered by kitteh pictures.

    • BosGrl

      So let me get this straight. The only symbols of America that are OK per the wingnuts are flags and guns and MAGA hats? Everything else is some kind of passive aggressive trigger from the left?

      • Delu

        Hey it’s not like we’re telling them what should set them off…..

        • BosGrl

          We don’t have to. They do it all by themselves.

    • Up In Smoke O’hontas

      Someone started an FFRF Won’t Win hashtag today, so we’re looking for awkward and obscure sports clips for the retaliatory memes. Also too, cats stuck in things…oh, and local 1st amendment violations.

      • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

        Yeah, but those were Florida Cats, right?

    • BosGrl

      That actually makes me a little sad.

    • Delu

      He shouldn’t have to go to jail for petting cats.

    • Up In Smoke O’hontas

      I might do the same. Of course, I’m a female who is white, so cops don’t even give me a hard time when I ask questions like, “Where are they tear gassing along this Halloween Street Party? I’ve still got 30 minutes until Last Call…”
      I was cordially advised to head away from the ruckus, and advised to hook up with a group on my way out of the fracas.

      • BosGrl

        Wait until you are white, female, middle aged and overweight; you might as well be invisible.

        • Up In Smoke O’hontas

          I’m curvy, and in the range on middle age …the triple Ds get plenty of…er, sympathy, but I’d trade them in a second…
          …hey, my eyes are up here ;-)

          • Willert

            huh?

          • Up In Smoke O’hontas

            Exactly. I was only speeding because I dropped my knitting…
            …my eyes are still up here though.

          • Willert

            I’m still gonna need you to do a field sobriety test

          • BosGrl

            I hear you, sister.

    I guess the Lone Ranger must have changed his costume–after he mistakenly ate some of those “special” mushrooms Tonto uses for religious purposes.

      Dafuq? That’s making me loopy just looking at it.
