598 People, Places and Things Donald Trump Has Insulted on Twitter: A Complete List

Since, May... so not counting The Squad.

I can't even begin to highlight all the insults this scofflaw fakeass feckless fuck "will not get away with."

So whatever you find worth quoting will be welcome.

We could spread these around social media. And Breitbart's page, and Twitter.

Like sheshe2 says: Buckle up, buttercup, we're coming for you and your family too.

Thomas Friedman On How Trump Is A Chump

Start viewing at 15:35.

I've detested Friedman since forever, but he's got ideas about how to literally intrigue Independent, small business and even Republican voters to vote Democratic. He should know them, after years of doing all the PR sell for the U of C school of economics. He's worth a look, since he really wants Democrats to win.

The documents must be posted by 11:00 am eastern on Thursday, July 18,

Judge William H. Pauley of the Southern District of New York wrote in a decision released Wednesday.

“The campaign finance violations discussed in the Materials are a matter of national importance. Now that the Government's investigation into those violations has concluded, it is time that every American has an opportunity to scrutinize the Materials,” Judge Pauley wrote.

These unredacted documents could change everything.

Thank you, Judge Pauley.

FRONTLINE Interviews Alex Stamos On Social Media Ethics, Security In The U.S., World

Alex Stamos is an old friend of Beto O'Rourke, and later member of the original hacking supergroup, The Cult of the Dead Cow, of which Beto was a founding member. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Stamos

Members of the cDc, the first hackers, communicated together from all over the country, organized the first hacker conferences; became the major advisers and consultants to the Pentagon, Intel agencies, and the Congressional Intelligence committees, and are now among the heads of the security industry, founders of great software corporations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult_of_the_Dead_Cow

Twenty of them are now known, and I recommend reading Joseph Menn's Cult of the Dead Cow -- How the Original Hacking Supergroup Might Just Save the World (2019), to learn how they've kept net industries from being the Wild West. There's a lot to learn about our Internet communications issues and history, and this cDc group is a good start. Not all of them are in Wikipedia, but Googling them works.

The rest want to remain anonymous. I'm not sure if cDc officially exists anymore.

Stamos is now recognized as the greatest expert on Internet security threats, and helped Facebook and Robert Mueller trace the biggest data steal from Cambridge Analytica and Russia's GRU.

Stamos wants our technology sector to build institutional memory.
The best reason is that the social good of our technology systems will become the a large part of the ethical underpinning of our democracy.

Detainees -- Got Charts?

Any and all other site links are needed and welcome here.

The purpose of this thread is to help us map where our detention centers are, where children separated from their families are. Charts comparing detainment and deportation by president aren't recommended here.

Any sites for any state help. Maps help. Photos help. Any names of culpable organizations and corporations help. Names of charts of Homeland, CBP, ICE people help.

Whatever we can or can't do to give material help, we can still help by sharing more here.

Here's a site I found tonight. It's interactive map (in the link, not here) seems like a good starting point.

Inslee Opposes Great Lakes Pipeline Plan

Can ANY American imagine a broken pipeline destroying the largest body of fresh water on Earth, the Great Lakes?

... the Washington state governor described Enbridge Inc.'s Line 5 pipeline and the proposed replacement tunnel in Michigan's Straits of Mackinac as "a clear and present threat to the health of the Great Lakes and to our climate."

"They threaten the clean drinking water that millions depend upon," Inslee said. "And they would lock in decades of climate pollution that we can't afford. ... This dangerous pipeline must be decommissioned, the proposed oil tunnel must not be built and clean alternatives must be explored immediately."

Line 5 runs for 645 miles (1,038 kilometers) between Superior, Wisconsin, and Sarnia, Ontario, and carries crude oil and natural gas liquids used to make propane. A more than 4-mile (6.4-kilometer) segment is divided into dual pipes that extend across the bed of the straits linking lakes Huron and Michigan.

Inslee told the AP that he thinks the pipeline should be "a major topic" in this month's debate and he called on his fellow presidential candidates to oppose the Enbridge plan.

Environmental groups praised him for attempting to draw national attention to the issue.

"Climate change is one of the greatest issues — if not the greatest issue — facing our nation and it needs to be talked about in more than sound bites, and Line 5 is an important part of that discussion," said Kate Madigan, director of the Michigan Climate Action Network.

The second debate in Detroit must focus on our fresh water vs fossil fracking battles, and Inslee is on it.
