Happy Friday, Wonketariat! Have some special Fiona Nice Time, and take a gander at some of the things we may be talking about today!

Fourteen people were killed during two terrorist attacks in Spain yesterday that left many wounded, copying attacks seen in Berlin, London, Stockholm and Nice.

Trump again brought up his magic bullet theory to kill Islamic extremists in response to the attacks in Spain.

Trump and President Bannon are basking in the culture war they’ve started, with Bannon telling WaPo that Trump’s racism is one of his best qualities.

Trump has convened a meeting of cabinet officials (and Mike Pence) to sell the war in Afghanistan to Erik Prince’s merry band of money-hungry mercenaries.

Meanwhile, generals in Afghanistan don’t know what the fuck is going on in Washington while soldiers are dying on the other side of the world, seemingly unbeknownst to Trump.

The Navy relieved two top officers involved in a deadly accident in Japanese waters after an early report concluded “inadequate leadership” was a contributing factor. And in the military, leadership starts with the chief executive.

Sen. Bob Corker called out the big, fat puss-grabbing elephant in the room in an interview with a local news outlet. Corker stated Trump “needs to move to a place where daily he’s waking up thinking about what’s best for the nation,” as opposed to rubbing one out during Fox and Friends.

The DOJ is ending “Operation Choke Point,” an Obama era program that tried to ferret out fraud perpetrated by businesses from payday lenders to gun retailers.

President Bannon wants to “You’re Fired” the top US Asian diplomat, Susan Thornton, in order to start a war, but what’s left of the State Department is aggressively fighting back.

REXXON and Jim Mattis are warning of “strong military consequences” if the DPRK shoots first, but they also caution that we shouldn’t be stocking up on canned goods and Twinkies just yet.

Trump’s aides HR McMaster and Dina Powell are not happy to be defending a Nazi president, but they’re worried about what would happen if they left.

Wall Street tanked over reports that Gary Cohn might resign, forcing the White House to beg call reports of Cohn’s resignation greatly exaggerated.

Trump’s White House is losing more top cybersecurity officials and it’s having trouble finding people willing to leave the stability of the tech sector for the nut house in Washington.

Trump is having a sad about all the Confederate participation trophies people keep tearing down in disgust.

Now that Republicans are tepidly criticizing Trump, how might the US enact the 25th Amendment to “You’re Fired” President Puss-grab?

The ACLU will no longer defend groups that protest with firearms as it considers people marching through streets with semi-automatic weapons and itchy trigger fingers fully capable of defending themselves from regular folks hurling mean words. [Archive]

Three YUGE fundraisers at Mar-a-Lago were canceled after they heard Trump’s neo-Nazi rhetoric, and they’re really kicking Trump where it hurts most (his wallet).

Pretty much the entire city of Chicago’s voter data was leaked out by an electronic voting system company that just left the data on the cloud without a password. Thanks, dicks.

Tampa, Florida, residents raised over $180,000 in less then 24 hours to remove a Confederate statue from downtown Tampa after rich guys and sportball teams donated thousands of Ameros. A lawyer who organized the effort stated that citizens “fixed the problem because it didn’t appear that the county could.”

Some cowardly asshole knocked over an anti-hate protest statue in Baltimore that was placed near a Confederate statue in 2015, with the artist commenting on the irony that two years ago the police had issued a fine for its initial placement.

A statue of former SCOTUS Justice Roger Taney was taken down in Annapolis, Maryland, and now pigeons don’t what they’re supposed to shit all over.

An Arizona Confederate monument to Jefferson Davis was tarred and feathered. Literally.

Maine’s loony Governor Paul Le Page is mad that people are tearing down Confederate statues and memorials, and likens it to “taking down the monuments of those who perished in 9/11.” [h/t JoeMyGod]

World’s worst houseguest Julian Assange turned down 68 gigs of leaked Russian government documents reported to contain evidence of high level corruption in the Russian government because he thought the stuff was already public, and it would have probably killed his bootleg talk show on Russian state TV.

Tech CEOs are caught between love and hate groups that want them to pick sides.

The Daily Stormer already lost its Russian domain shortly after going live when it was immediately DDoS’d to purgatory, before Russian officials slapped it with a ban-hammer for strict hate speech laws.

Conservative media blowhards are singing the praises of their God-Emperor as they continue to try and recast blame onto leftist protest groups that don’t walk around with semi-automatic weapons giving Nazi salutes.

Seriously, why the fuck does Jack Posobiec have a Top Secret Security Clearance? Why hasn’t he been dishonorably discharged for inciting violence, condoning white supremacy, and trying to screw with elections at home and abroad? That’s criminal in the military. [Morning Maddow]

Racist Breitbart troll Chuck Johnson and a two-bit neo-Nazi “hacker” tried to help find Hillary Clinton’s missing murder mail, and they’ve been rewarded with high-level White House access.

Neo-Nazi Chris Cantwell got cucked by e-dating site OKCupid when it deleted his account. Chief Exec Elie Seidman stated the dating site has, “zero tolerance for racism. We make a lot of [decisions] every day that are tough. Banning Christopher Cantwell was not one of them.”

The son of Rupert Murdoch, James Murdoch, has pledged $1 million Ameros to the Anti-Defamation League in the wake of Trump’s professed love of hate groups. In a memo Murdoch said, “I can’t even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen…”

The guy who wrote Trump’s book told Anderson Cooper that he thinks Trump will “You’re Fired” himself, and then have a Russian pee hooker victory party before he goes to jail, but we won’t believe until we see it.

And here’s your late night wrap-up! Stephen Colbert took a brief look back at Gen. Kelly’s success (or lack thereof) and had some nice talky time with John DickersonJimmy Kimmel explained the eclipse with an adorable little nerd; Jim Jefferies explained all the bullshit people go through to get a Green Card in America; Seth Meyers took A Closer Look at the Steve Bannon defense; Conan O’Brien got his hands on a brutal phone call between Trump and BamzJames Corden noticed that not all Confederate statues were created equal, then talked with Julia Louis-Dreyfus about her secret murder mail from Hillary Clinton; and Weekend Update did NOT want to talk about old-timey threats to America.

Here’s some special nice time advice from Tina Fey for those of us who’ve started to grow paunchy bellies and pickled livers.

And now, your regularly scheduled morning Nice Time, a silly little Takin!

If you can, kick us a couple of Ameros. We’re ad-free, so that means we’re only here because of people like you!

    I’m heading to Idaho tomorrow for the eclipse and I’ve been debating whether to take my computer. It’s a work computer and the odds of me doing any work while I’m on vacation are very small. On the other hand, there’s a good possibility society will collapse in the next week and interrupt air travel. Having a computer might be useful in such an instance. Also, there’s a higher than normal probability of my house (outside DC) being destroyed in a nuclear strike.

  • Joe Beese

    The options the Pentagon is presenting are straightforward, and nothing the president has not seen before: Stay the course with the current strategy, which combines counterterrorism with a relatively narrow advise-and-assist mission to support Afghan government troops; add the several thousand additional American forces that the top U.S. general there has asked for; send in private contractors; or withdraw.

    The more ambitious escalation that Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) has proposed is not on the table, at least as far as the military is concerned.

  • Gayer Than Thou

    Y’know, at the point at which you find yourself comparing the removal of Confederate statues to the removal of 9/11 memorials, you might want to stop and consider whether you actually know anything at all about either the Civil War or 9/11.

    • JustPixelz (((Ω)))

      When you find yourself equating the removal of Confederate statues to the removal of 9/11 memorials, you have become Paul LePage. Seek help for a Paul LePage lasting more than four years.

    Mitt posted to facespace:

    Whether he intended to or not, what he communicated caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn. His apologists strain to explain that he didn’t mean what we heard. But what we heard is now the reality, and unless it is addressed by the president as such, with unprecedented candor and strength, there may commence an unraveling of our national fabric.

    I’ll admit, I actually like this. He’s giving Trump a chance to try again. He doesn’t deserve a chance, of course, and there is absolutely no way Trump will take advantage of it.

    I like this because everyone who is in doubt of Trump’s character, or really thinks that Trump’s statement doesn’t prove he’s a racist now has a simple test: Trump can say:
    (a) I didn’t mean to give support to Nazis, but clearly they took it that way.
    (b) My words were therefore wrong.
    (c) Here’s a real condemnation of Nazis.

    When he doesn’t do this, anyone will be able to see how horrible a person he is.

    • Persistent Tennessee Rain

      I never thought I would find myself wishing Mitt Romney was the president.

        Mittens was out of step with the 2016 GOP – too corporate “nice” and not a racist brawler.

    • Finnibar87

      I would take a Mittens Romney as president now, if we could dump Trump in a New York Minute.

      No, I ain’t harboring a secret love for Mittens; but at least we know he’s just out of touch, not out of his mind.

    • Antonin Dvorak

      You can say a lot about Mitt’s continual shifts and vacillations of his views; but the one thing he has always been is a Yankee. I have no doubt he has no interest in identifying with these Southrons; as witnessed by his insistence that the Confederate flags should come down in the wake of the South Carolina massacre.

        • alwayspunkindrublic

          I don’t think Mitt is an actual racist, despite his absolute ignorance about people of color and, like all Republicans, a willingness to disenfranchise them to secure election victories. And compared to Trump, he’d be a combination of Martin Luther King, Gandhi, and Jesus.

        1. Unless you’re here for “casual sex” stop telling me you’re “sick of the games”
        2. Your boundaries are complete bullshit
        3. If you aren’t interested in sex, I’m not interested in you
        4. If you think all men suck, this tells me you have a habit of choosing shitty guys
        5. In a photo of you and a friend, I assume you are the ugly one
        6. I’m here for you, not your ex boyfriend
        7. I’m here for you, not your kids
        8. If all I can see is your face – you’re a fat girl

      i’m curious if that goes for white people who grew up in minority cities. My buddy lived in Japan (military family) when he was young and (broad sweeping generalizations here) dated a lot of asian women and then married one – i grew up on the border and end up dating mostly hispanic women.

      • JustPixelz (((Ω)))

        It’s kinda tl;dr, but — as I recall from originally reading it years ago — they looked at how often people responded to a “wink” (or whatever they call it) by white, black, asian, hispanic; male/female. So a black man winking at a white woman had -X% odds of getting a reply versus overall response (ignoring race).

        • Red Bird

          Just my opinion (because I can’t find the link to the study) but there is some proof that romantic preferences are influenced by social norms. So if you live in a culture where the image of beauty that you are given is different than your own features, you will seek out a mate who matches the dictated image. Dating sites are based on screening potential mates so it makes sense that they would reflect the dominant social norms. In case I’m being too subtle, in America, white people are portrayed as the most attractive so people eventually learn to think that way.

      Also too, why is there a Confederate monument in Arizona?

      • The Territory of Arizona (also known as Arizona Territory) was a territory claimed by the Confederate States during the American Civil War, between 1861 and 1865.

        They want to honor the criminals who “captured” them?

          Well obviously. That’s perfectly reasonable.

      • jodyleek

        Why is there a confederate monument in freaking Montana, also too? I was up late last night trying to figure that out and apparently it was the doings of the UDC, United Daughters of the Confederacy. In my research, it appears that the UDC, purveyors of the Lost Cause notion of the Civil War ( an historical white washing and southern apologist idealogy), were none too pleased with the Lincoln Memorial (built between 1914 and 1922) and the way history teaching was changing to a more favorable notion of the Lincoln presidency in the south (busts of Lincoln in southern schools – the horror!). So, they raised gobs of dough and put up a bunch of confederate memorials all over the US, including areas that weren’t even states during the “War of Northern Aggression” (another UDC renaming effort). I’m not an American history buff, so if anyone has corrections or additions, please feel free to add or subtract.

      • OrG in London

        You’re retiring?

        • Courser_Resistance

          Well, I’m at an age where things are closing in on me. I haven’t held an employee position since 2010. I went to grad school during the Recession and my last two job have been contract jobs. Good contract jobs, sure, but no company benefits. I have to buy Obamacare on the exchanges. It’s not cheap and I make too much to get much of a subsidy.

          Basically, I’ll be 59 in a few month and I HAVE to have a job with full benefits. I can’t afford to do contract anymore. I’m contracting with my Dream company right now and I’ve applied and been turned down for 3 jobs already. I have two more applications in but things move slowly there.

          As much as it stings, without a perm job, I’m probably better off ‘semi-retiring’ and going on Medicaid, unemployment while driving for Uber & Lyft (drivers in Denver usually drive for both simultaneously). I drove an airport shuttle van for a year, back in ’02 & ’03, so I kind of know the biz.

          All of this fills me with dread. I truly had a LOT of hope I’d *finally* get my shot. And while it’s not dead, it’s on life support.

          • Ms.Moon

            In some countries you would be retired by now. My uncle was a fireman in Trinidad and retired at 55, he’s been retired for years now, he’s at home helping with his grandkids and living the life.

          • Courser_Resistance

            I’m well aware, believe me. Being a late Baby Boomer, I missed out on virtually all of the opportunities that older Boomers had. I’ve basically bumped along my whole life with a combination of temp jobs, self-employment and the occasional perm job. The best companies I worked for went out of business during the various economic cycles. I’ve been extremely resilient, always able to find a way to support myself.

            But I’m older now, tired, kind of busted up and with absolutely no savings. Anytime I had a little nest egg saved up, there was a ‘correction’ or recession to wipe out what little I’ve managed to put away for retirement. And I’m a single, white woman with no family support. I try very hard not to let anxiety sap my enjoyment of life.

          • Zyxomma

            I’m in the same boat, but four years older. I sympathize.

          • Ms.Moon

            My mom also in her 50’s looked into changing careers, went back to school got a degree and everything. The jobs that she applied for would basically give her a huge pay cut because even though she’s worked at her job for over 20 years the transition within the same company would not be lateral and she can’t afford to take a huge cut in pay. My family is looking into building on our property back in Trinidad and putting in rental units so my parents can retire at some point and have income coming in for them to live on. Trinidad is not super expensive thank goodness in the terms of taxation but food costs are high and utilities still have to be paid.

          • Courser_Resistance

            My opportunities with the Dream company aren’t exactly dead, but dimming. The crazy thing is that everyone LOVES me! Everyone I’ve worked with has wanted me to come on perm. One guy I work with even sent a glowing recommendation email to the hiring manager I interviewed with. It was probably too late and he didn’t email it to me until later. I was just about in tears. It was the most wonderful recommendation I’ve ever gotten! Then I had to tell him that I didn’t get the job and he was almost indignant on my behalf. So a LOT of people want me to get on with them in any capacity and they know my situation.

            This is one of the times I need to relax and let things happen. It’s against my nature, but I think it’s what I need to do. Next week is my last week and I’m going to force myself to go into the backcountry the following for a while to center myself. I haven’t had a vacation in well over 2 years other than one weekend training weekend with my SAR group. I’m due.

    I’m a little disappointed in the ACLU, while I recognize their position is defensible. In practice it might be a tough theory to put in place; even they recognize that “it’s not a blanket yes and it’s not a blanket no.” I’m thinking of crowds exercising free-speech rights that the ACLU would ordinarily defend, with *some* people armed. What number will it take to reach critical mass? Would the ACLU not have defended the Panthers on the steps of the California state capitol? I dunno. We’ll just have to see how it plays out.

    • covfefesumgame0005

      the ACLU has a great history of protecting everyone’s free speech rights, and were in no way the cause of the Dolt-Right taking violence to the extreme

    • miss_grundy

      Did the Black Panthers put caches of weapons throughout the city when they protested at the state capitol in Sacramento? Because the Nazis, Klan and white supremacists did. If you arm yourself to the teeth and exercise free speech you will not be seen as a victim. These assholes last week were looking for a reason to pull out their guns and start shooting. And they would have gladly killed those who were protesting them. These domestic extremist terrorists are NOT good people.

In the last 13 months there have been similar attacks in France, Germany, Sweden and the UK.

        Given Trump’s lack of self control and his pathetically thin-skinned ego when insulted his response could be, how can I put it, “interesting” if only to gauge how low the fucker has to go for the GOP to still stand by him.

        • pussygrabber in chief

          There is no place so low that the GOP won’t follow him there.

      Stand by for Donny John’s rage tweet directed at the grieving mother.

      I can’t imagine I’d be as strong as this woman in this situation. She’s a badass.

    After Barcelona it was chilling to hear “We have breaking news. Something has happened in Finland.” Fortunately it’s nothing as massive, but it doesn’t seem like a random crime either. According to eyewitnesses there were three attackers, and because the area is closed and heavily armed police are patrolling it although they caught one attacker, that’s probably true. Eyewitnesses say one had a large knife and the others something like pesäpallo (a game like baseball) bats. Both the attackers and a victim – a mother with a small child – looked Middle-Eastern, but they seemed to choose victims randomly. Sigh. All of this with a grain of salt.

      And now I’m going to sauna because that’s what you do.

    • Changeling

      Apparently the bat-wielders were going after the guy with a knife. Weird, but relieving, I guess.

    I am watching a show about family businesses and today it’s about an Amsterdam family that is (what else) in the diamond business. The daughter of the owner tells proudly she will attend an event where Hillary will be speaking and she gets the chance to speak to her and show her some of their produces and thinks Clinton will love her works. She is delighted to speak to the first female president in US history about het passion. Unfortunately this show was filmed a year ago so it is not as if I just woke up from the most long lasting lucid dream ever.

    Honestly, “Operation Choke Point” shut down more sex workers than white supremacists. Maybe a retooling is in order.

    • jesterpunk

      They don’t care about that, they only got rid of it because Obama was for it.

      • ariel_gee_398

        If it was shutting down sex workers, Trump may have had a policy-related motivation for once in his life…

      • marxalot

        Oh, I know, it’s just that the original op kinda sucked, and also didn’t do what it purported to do, instead equating voluntary sex work with human trafficing and punishing the cop-styled “victims,” which is how cops do.

      You are absolutely right ! Leasshole needs to go to Gettysburg and see what Maine & Chamberlain did. Farmers, fishermen, and shopkeepers died for our freedom.

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    Okay, so this happened last night at work: a very loud moron came to the checkout with a cart full of Mountain Dew, candy, and cigarettes (LITERALLY – I was shocked at his adherence to stereotype) and before he even got to the cashier he was spouting off about “what people don’t know” about the Civil War, and how Lee and Washington are exactly the same because they both owned slaves. Luckily for my continued employment status, I wasn’t at that register, and walked away. But obviously the hater in chief has thrown the morons a bone they will be carrying proudly around for a long time. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

      I rode my bike into work the other day next to a big truck that had a bumper sticker the said “Hillary: Liar, Liar, Ugly Pantsuit on Fire.” I was close enough to kick his truck and I debated flipping him off, but I was on campus already and didn’t want to get fired.

    I LOVE that Tampa bay statue removal story. Even the Chamber of Commerce got involved! This is where Dems who say Trump and Bannon are using the statue removal issue to their benefit are wrong. The problem is that Dems are not using the issue to OUR benefit. This is about states’ rights. The president is trying to tell cities what they can and cannot do with their own local property. What jurisdiction does the federal government have over local city property? Trump can fuck right off!

    Something to look out for: White supremacists planning rally for noon today in Durham, NC where protestors recently brought down a Confederate statue. Businesses closing early in anticipation of potential problems.

      Any violence will play into the hands of the nazi’s.

      • pussygrabber in chief

        Including violence perpetrated *by* nazis, because it’ll be blamed on the “anitfa” and the “alt-left” regardless of whether it’s true or not.

  • Wookie Monster

    “Trump has convened a meeting of cabinet officials (and Mike Pence) to sell the war in Afghanistan to Erik Prince’s merry band of money-hungry mercenaries.”

    Not selling it. They’re talking about giving Erik a couple billion dollars to fight it for them. Because it is just about the worst idea ever, so Trump loves it.

  • Wookie Monster

    Why would Arizona have a statue of Jefferson Davis? It wasn’t even a goddamn state then!

  • Wait, why is Tina Fey advocating giving up and letting Nazis own the streets “nice time”?

    White supremacists only feel emboldened enough to carry out this violence *because* decent white people would rather laugh and eat sheetcake— En Sabah Moor (@AndrayDomise) August 18, 2017

    • Sounds less advocating giving up and more “good whites dont do enough to stop it” to me

      • WIDTAP

        I agree. Fey’s bit is more about observing and mocking the feelings of frustration and powerlessness than prescribing a means to confront nazis.

        You can get that from Colin’s statements on how eating and yelling at cake was futile, no matter how comforting the emotional displacement was. Further, when Colin notes that a number of the weekend marches had been cancelled already, Tina’s farcical response is “See! It’s working already!”

        Sometime a good joke just helps us calm down enough to consider and address the issues.

  • Hey murdoch spawn. Put your real money where your mouth is. Tell fox to fucking quit pandering to those assholes. Until then your tax deductable pittance is proof of your complicit fence sitting

  • Tina Fey has still fucked it up.
