Just FYI persuading the U.S. president not to launch a preemptive strike on N. Korea is an ongoing process.@gluboldhttps://t.co/STcMjnfVJo pic.twitter.com/WdPGWxRg3t

Now you know why Kelly and McMaster won't leave the country at the same time https://t.co/mhiXG9SRt3

Threatening nuclear war — again. Why does it always have to be nuclear war?
Gee, you’d think they might also be planning for nuclear war, if in fact their boss’s comments aren’t just stupid but incendiary taunts pic.twitter.com/Oq1YLHnVj9

Hell, if I have to die in a nuclear war at least I want to have my red plastic necktie reach my knees. Otherwise I’d be totally embarrassed.
Kal Penn is trying to get Twitter to suspend his account because threatening to murder millions of people by starting a nuclear war is a violation of Twitter’s TOS.
Did he do it again? Can’t Kelly slip something in his evening cocoa to help him sleep for a few hours?
Given what we know of El Presidente Donaldo’s dietary habits, I doubt he’d drink anything as healthy as cocoa.
A neo-Nazi website called the Daily Stormer called Heather Heyer “a fat, childless 31-year-old slut.” Amy Siskind of The New Agenda tweeted a screencap to their site’s host, GoDaddy, who responded that the site had 24 hours to move to another provider. In response, the Stormer apparently doxxed Siskind, posting her name and address. I say “apparently” because the latest is that Anonymous has taken over the site. The twitter thread
? ?? Goku (aka The Hope of the Universe) ? ?
One must wonder why GoDaddy allowed them to be up in the first place. Also fuck the Nazi knuckle-draggers who mocked a woman who died in a horrific terrorist attack.
Don’t scare me like that*. I thought Trump just launched a new series of tweets about launching a nuclear war with North Korea.
All I could find via Google were articles from the last few days about fire and fury and locked and loaded.
* And this is a reason on how screwed up Trump is as President that I have to stop and check, if we are on the brink of nuclear war, that I missed because I was asleep on a Sunday night.
@Origuy: It looks like Anonymous – or some entity calling itself that – HAS in fact taken over the site. Ain’t gonna link it, but going to the Anonymous link there:
So, anyhoo, there ya go.
@sharl: Just gonna add that I have no way of confirming the veracity of the Anonymous claim, though there is some evidence from long known twitter accounts that it’s true. But others report that keyboard nazis are claiming its a trolling effort by the owner of the nazi site. Meh, who knows…
@Origuy: Who is Amy Siskind and what is The New Agenda?
I’m guessing it’s something I’d ought to already have known, but it’s too early and I’m too lazy. Plus there’s the distaste of making a doxxed person’s Google ranking rise.
@opiejeanne: whatever Kelly slips him needs to work for infinity.
@ThresherK: Siskind and her organization go back to the Hillary-supporting PUMAs of 2008, of which she was one. Betty Cracker and her fellow denizens of RumpRoast.com used to skewer her on a somewhat regular basis back in the day.
I wouldn’t bother checking her out, unless you’re into that kind of never-ending political factionalism; as a fan of RumpRoast back then, I recognized her name. These days my impression is that she is one of more prominent liberal-centrist Democrats on twitter.
Shitgibbon — I really hate that corpulent slob. He is the ugliest thing.
Make America Great Again???????? He is a danger to the whole world. Today — this week he wants to fix N. Korea. Who knows who or what will piss him off next? He is mentally ill. Some form of manic/depressive — there is some sort of major chemical imbalance in what passes as his brain.
He wants attention — and he doesn’t much care what he has to do to make the world notice him. The more attention he gets — the more he needs. He is going to crash and burn — all by himself. It seems like he is going to blow — as in stroke or heart attack. We the people don’t really know what sort of health problems he is hiding.
The idiots who voted for him. Now I understand how Hitler came into being. I studied the theories of Mass behavior — the mob mentality — but back in college it was all theory. Now I am seeing the cult of hate lead by a creature who hates everyone. The idiots who voted for him? He hates his fans.
I think perhaps Shitgibbon owns a new category of mental illness — it seems like he is full on manic. My sister is bipolar so I’ve seen the destructive side of this disease. She is mean as hell and lives in her own world. With the Shitgibbon there could be drugs — many people with mental illness self-medicate. Who the hell knows? The shitgibbon is not a “normal” human — bad genes plus bad upbringing.
He isn’t going to change — he thrives on chaos.
end of rant.
Have we agreed that “fat, childless 31-year-old slut” is unacceptable body-shaming but “corpulent slob” is fair comment? Just asking.
@David Evans: I think there is a measurable distance between speaking that way of a murdered woman and making desperate fun of a powerful, dangerous, man.
Amy Siskind per Google started a list of weekly changes since Trump was inaugurated keeping track of the changes from what used to be normal. Apparently she started a foundation helping women and girls advance, no idea if it’s any good. The weekly list is supposed to be a hit.
I think a general rule is that “childless 31-year-old slut” is not body shaming, and neither is driving a motor vehicle into a crowd of nonbelievers regardless of which alleged god’s name you do it in. The “fat” part barely registers in this scenario.
@sharl: I was wondering when the “good” hackers were going to make themselves known.
@sharl: Never ceases to amaze me how Reichwingnuts think they have the bestest information security ever and that they’re proof against anything stupid libtards can throw at them. In spite of repeated proofs to the contrary.
It’s a bit like being surprised when they discover how difficult governing is.
The United States government has it’s limits on its ability to withstand abuse and the current administration’s inability to function to norms adopted by many subsequent Presidents is stretching it’s limits.

I didn’t know Amy Siskind was a PUMA. She’s been tweeting pretty good stuff. I assumed she was related to David Siskind tangentially and in the news biz.
We have no confirmation that “Anonymous” is involved yet. Looks more like a DS stunt. Wonder if they are having issues finding a new host
We find claim that it took a “UNITED FORCE OF ELITE HACKERS” to hack a CMS run by amateurs incredibly amusing.
If the CMS was compromised and under control by an activism motivated attacker, why leave up the old content? Easy enough to delete.
GoDaddy gave them 24 hours to find a new host. They may be having issues finding a new host that wants their money.
Anne Laurie @ Top:
Because it’s not about protecting Americans, or advancing US policy goals. It’s about Donald proving to the world (to himself really, since he is only world) how powerful he is, about showing the world his explosive might if he doesn’t get his way.
@Boatboy_srq: @sharl: Apparently now Anonymous is denying involvement.
So, according to DS those eeevil Liebruls are taking down their site and oppressing Gut Patriotische Ahmurrrrcans, and not their hosting provider kicking them out for TOS violations? Oh, the butthurt…
The Moar You Know
After this weekend I gotta say it: I’m more scared than I was under Reagan. That’s an accomplishment and not a good one.
When I saw that Daily Stormer post my first thought was that it was a parody site or something, it was so far over the top. Is it a real far right wing site? Is it being run by a high school dropout?
