Sajid Javid: Britain's First BAME Home Secretary Was Marked Out For The Top
Is that a racist term for non-honkey? 
Or a euphemism for wog?
What is BAME?

Washington Still Offended By Vulgarity, The Word ‘Pussy
A roast used to be good humoured self-mockery. 
This is just nasty. This is not a roast, this is just partisan politics. 
Not really excusable, even for a democrat,

Tories Accused Of 'Shameless Cover Up' Over Amber Rudd Immigration Target Claims
I saw the memo she sent to the PM. The only time targets were mentions were for organized crime and traffickers. Seems okay to me. All the hype about targets were interpetations, they did NOT come form her words. This is a beat up - possibly becuase she is a remainer?

Quebec 9-year- old Boy Allegedly Forced Younger Kids To Lick Each Other's Genitals
Jesus! Why is this news. How puerile are you, Huffpo?

Joy Reid Says She Doesn’t ‘Believe’ She Wrote Anti-LGBTQ Posts
It is not nice to tell the truth about some practices of the LBGTQRF community.

Britain set to offer EU Brexit immigration deal 'very similar' to free movement
Good for them. Sounds like a sensible plan.

Nikki Haley Hits Back At White House: ‘I Don’t Get Confused’
Sorry, Nikki. You want more sanctions on Russia, but Putin won't let Donnie do that.

Facebook Didn’t Seem To Care I Was Being Sexually Harassed Until I Decided To Write About It
Was it Facebook who harassed you or was it somebody else? Who, beside Facebook did you report this to?   If this group met on the telephone, would the phone company be responsible? If it met by post, would the post office be be responsible?

No Disclosure? No Problem. Sean Hannity Gets a Pass at Fox News.
Why would you expect FOX or Hannity to have journalistic ethics?

Trump Scraps New Sanctions Against Russia, Overruling Advisers
Putin won't let him.

A New Poll Shows The GOP Is More Trump’s Party Than Paul Ryan’s
Of course it is. It stands for $1 trillion dollar deficits, trade-union protectionism, racism, sexism and big government in Washington telling us what to do.  These things were never Paul Ryan's style.

Syria Strikes To Punish 'Bad Behaviour' Not Justified, Says Shami Chakrabart
True! We really aren't all that opposed to regimes using poison gas on their people. It's the kind of thing you see all the time. I don't know why we would want to single out this bad behavior from any other. Chemical weapons are sort of like putting your feet on a tube seat or leaving your gum under the restaurant counter, innit?

The Blue Wave Might Not Happen

Trump is said to be morally unfit to be President of the United States.   Well of course he is, anyone with the sense God gave a goose knows this.  The problem is that no one cares.  We just don’t care that our President is immoral.  We have given up on morality.  All we care about is winning.

This is true of even of those one would think should care.  Evangelicals do not care if our President treats women as meat, and long as he opposes abortion.  Trade unions do not care if he is a racist, as long as he favours protectionism.  The rich do not care if he lies, as long as he gives them massive tax cuts.  The military/industrial complex do not care if he is a stain on all our country holds dear, as long as he increases military spending.   Some conservatives are even willing to put up with $1 trillion in deficits each year, if it means the Republican party wins.

Not only have we made winning the be all and end all of political life, we have made it part of our moral life as well.   Does it matter if he lost with honour?  Who cares, he lost.  Does it matter if he cheats to win?  As long as he didn’t get caught or can bluff his way through.

Someone asked about the Syria airstrikes: what were our President’s goals?   You have to understand that he does not have goals in a military or business management sense.  He just checks his ratings.  He is, at heart, a reality TV show host, and he runs his presidency that way.  He measures himself almost solely on his ratings.  

The mainstream media give him what he wants and needs: attention. They hang on every word he tweets.  And it doesn’t really matter if, like FOX they fawn on every statement or, like MSNBC, they excoriate anything he has to say regardless of merit.  They are ratings: they say that he matters.

This makes me think that the so-called “blue wave” predicted for the mid-term elections may, in fact, not happen. The Democrats just don’t make the news these days, because they have nothing sensational to say.   They will do fine with black and Hispanic voters, but they have alienated their base in the white-collar worker and the common labourer.  So far, they don’t seem to be able to come up with anything to win them back.

Meanwhile Trump gets the headlines, day in day out.   It’s how he won the presidency.  
It may be how he will win the mid-term elections.

‘Mission Accomplished!’ But What Is the Mission in Syria?
He does not have goals in the military or business manager sense of the word. He got his ratings, so he's happy.

Ex-Ambassador To Vietnam Quit Because Trump Planned To Deport More RefugeesOoooh! Ethics. Not a Trump Republican then

This Is Life On The Streets Of Hollywood When You’re Young, Queer And Homeless
Nice that this girl, who left home of her own accord, got some help from a charity.Wish they would do that for our homeless vets.

Only a quarter of Britons backed the UK’s decision to launch air strikes in Syria
Yes, I've noticed Britain becoming cowards over the last few decades.

"Jeremy Corbyn has accused the government of ‘waiting for instructions’ from Trump on what to do." 
Corbyn thinks it is okay for someone to be "a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it,” "

Trump Pardons Scooter Libby
I think Trump has just said: "I don't care if he lied."
So why is anyone upset about Comey and McCabe.

Google has lost a landmark “right to be forgotten” ruling
Absolutely. People with criminal pasts need to be able to hide this fact from law abiding UK citizens.

There is nothing wrong with Homan being a cop's cop if he will just get his own cops from ICE to do their job. 
All they need is a federal warrant and local cops will arrest the perp. 
It is just the the Feds want someone else to do their job for them - but Feds often act that way.

      James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is a weak and... DOJ just issued the McCabe report - which is a total disaster. He LIED! LIED! LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey - McCabe is Comey!! No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!
    2. Unless you are making yourself look good or someone else look bad, you aren't happy, are you. We don't have time for this kind of distraction. GET A LIFEw   Anyway, you just said you didn't care if Scooter Lbby lied, so why get upset about Comey and McCabe

      Tremendous pressure is building, like never before, for the Border Wall and an end to crime cradling Sanctuary Cities. Started the Wall in San Diego, where the people were pushing really hard to get it. They will soon be protected!
    2. There is NO pressure for the wall, which is stupid waste of money. HIRE MORE BORDER GUARDS. The San Diego wall is of the type that has been in existence since at least 2015. Sanctuary cities are easy: just get a federal warrant and the local cops will arrest the perp. JUST GET I.C.E.TO DO THEIR JOB

      Would only join TPP if the deal were substantially better than the deal offered to Pres. Obama. We already have BILATERAL deals with six of the eleven nations in TPP, and are working to make a deal with the biggest of those nations, Japan, who has hit us hard on
      trade for years
