3 Good Morning Morons; today is Saturday, August 24, 2019. On this day in 1814 British troops invaded Washington, D.C. and during the Burning of Washington the White House, the Capitol and many other buildings are set ablaze. The burning of Washington and the capitol was in retaliation for Americans burning Port Dover in Canada. You never hear about that in the grade school history class do you?

More confusion in the Epstein 'suicide'.


Disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein was taken off suicide watch after being examined by a 'doctoral-level psychologist' days before he hanged himself in his prison cell, according to the Justice Department.


Would that be more evidence of murder, or just an incompetent examination?

25 Willowed.

Did you guys here the outrage this week, of many outrageousnesses, where Trump was going to dig up veterans graves to make way for his border wall?

https://youtu.be/8gHGBUj1i2M

But in the actual report CBP issued a statement that they'd avoid the cemetery that's along the path of proposed levee-wall. So, just speculation. Only the headline and chyron misleadingly said "Veterans graves to be "Dug Up" for border wall" like it was happening for real. Saw lots of Nevertrumpers sharing the story and saying how disrespectful Trump was to the military.

...but, then I got thinking. These are WWI and II veterans, not soldiers killed in action. So, wouldn't that pretty much classify every cemetery in America? And I pulled up this place on Google maps.. and its tiny, one acre of an old church tucked between a couple residential plots where everything else around for miles is farmland:

26.086271, -98.184602

Anyways, they ought to avoid this place and just let the wall have a 1,000 foot gap. The Boarder Patrol HQ is only a mile to the west anyways.

Nobody alive today was ever a slave, ever bought a slave, or ever freed one. That shit was decided 150 years ago.

Nobody alive today was involved in the slightest. And anybody that thinks they're somehow worse off for slavery can easily rectify things with an airline ticket.

well, it turns out trump does have the power to force companies out of china, by the i.e.e.p.a. - the international emergency economic powers act, that authorizes the president to regulate international commerce after declaring a national emergency (enacted 1977).

i don't know if trump was aware of this, probably was, but there it is. not a foolish bluff, but still obnoxious as far as i'm concerned.

One source familiar with the discussions told The Daily Beast that the staff gave explicit assurance that the words "universal background checks" did not come up on the LaPierre call. While "universal" background checks are an objective championed by House Democrats, "expanded" background checks are the goal of the most prominent Senate bill: legislation authored by Sens. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) that would extend such screenings to private sales such as those that take place at gun shows.

But Murphy, who has been in talks with the White House since the LaPierre call, also said that Trump not only hadn't abandoned negotiations but understood he would ultimately have to break with the NRA for legislation to happen - should he decide he wanted it to.

"The president and the White House has made it clear that they are open to leading on this issue and trying to bring Republicans along with them," the Senator said. "I believe the White House is still committed to try and work on a comprehensive anti-gun violence proposal that will include strengthening background checks."

106 More confusion in the Epstein 'suicide'.


Disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein was taken off suicide watch after being examined by a 'doctoral-level psychologist' days before he hanged himself in his prison cell, according to the Justice Department.


Would that be more evidence of murder, or just an incompetent examination?

149 "Deep Fake" is pretty much the final nail in the coffin of our high trust society and the American experiment in general.

While I tend to agree that this is a "final nail", the former united States has managed to import tens of millions of people from cultures that are completely incompatible with a high trust cooperative society.

This is more of a signal to those who are alert that we should admit to ourselves that this is long over and to realize that we are now no different than all of the other nations and cultures in that we live among a dominant low-trust exploitative society.

There will always be a third of the country, no matter what is the dominant culture, who are gullible enough to be taken advantage of each and every time.

It can't be helped, they are wired to be idealists.

Removal of a federal judge requires impeachment.

It's called Impeachment - as has been pointed out, there are no hard and fast rules for it. Whatever Congress says is impeachable, is impeachable.

but as to precedent: Thurgood Marshall was literally comatose for the last 2 years he was on the court in the early 90's, and William Rhenquist was completely incapacitated, pushed around in a chair like the original Captain Pike, for the last 18 months while he was Chief Justice. In both cases, their unnamed, unconfirmed, and unknown staffs took over their duties.

Which brings up a point few people realize - there are several standing SCOTUS opinions out there, which stand as Black Letter Law today, that were authored by staffers who were "acting" as the Justice they had been hired to serve. It's getting attention now with RBG, but it's an old practice on the Court. It's happened with other Justices as well; Marshall and Rhenquist are just the most famous for it.

I agree with your overall thesis, but it's interesting to note that Compton is now majority Hispanic. They've been "ethnically cleansing" the blacks out of there for the last couple of decades.

You don't hear about this much in the media, since it doesn't match Teh Narrative that all the peace-loving brown people would live together in perfect harmony if it weren't for Whitey.
