I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

Like he didnt exist: Texas paper edits grieving gay son out of moms obituary because its...

...‘contrary to God’s Word’

A local newspaper in Texas removed references to a gay couple in their mother’s obituary, citing ”religious and ethical reasons,” Fox News 4 reports.

Barry Giles and John Gambill, who have been married for 31 years, say the Olto, Texas paper scrubbed references to Gambill after Giles’ mom died. The couple had included both their names in the obituary they sent to Giles’ hometown paper, writing “those left to cherish her memory include her son, Barry Giles and his husband, John Gambill of Dallas.”

------------------

n a statement, Hamilton defended his decision to leave out Gambill’s name and relationship to Giles.

“It is my religious conviction that a male cannot have a husband,” Hamilton said. “It is also my belief that to publish anything contrary to God’s Word on this issue would be to publish something in the newspaper that is not true.”

God - is there any day in the week when he is not being a complete and utter arsehole??

How can you be a conservative woman and not have an element of self-hatred?

The war on women is legend. It is a feast of misogyny and sexism. From equal pay to reproductive justice to education to rape conservatives really do not like women. Unless of course they are stupid (or they feign to be) how can any woman believe (or even assume) that the conservative male gives any kind of thought to them at all, unless that thought is to subjugate them as much as humanly possible.

I am at loss to understand the seeming willingness of conservative women to willingly align themselves to a group of men who care nothing for them, unless they happily embrace draconian concepts of their role in life.

I am at loss to understand how a conservative woman can call a liberal woman a feminazi because she is sure that the erosion of women’s rights is a clear and present danger and speaks out about such things.

I am at a loss to understand how a conservative woman can allow loud, coarse, blowhard voices to influence her over and above the needs and rights of her own daughters.

I am at a loss to understand how a conservative woman can ignore, make light of or make a joke about sexist and misogynistic language promoted daily by conservative talking heads.

I am at a loss to understand how a conservative woman can excuse, forgive and gloss over the most egregious and outrageous violence in speech and actions towards women.

I am at loss to understand how you could be a woman and a conservative and not have some element of self-hatred.

Just sayin'

Gargoyle!!!!

Flake eyes 2020 primary challenge to stop Trump

Jeff Flake has a direct message for the Republicans of New Hampshire: Someone needs to stop Donald Trump. And Flake, a Republican senator from Arizona, may stand up against the Republican president in 2020 — either as a Republican or an independent — if no one else does.

"It's not in my plan to run for president, but I am not ruling it out. Somebody needs to stand up for traditional Republicanism," Flake told The Associated Press in an interview. "Somebody needs to raise that, for nothing else than to give people hope that that decent party will be back. We'll get through this."

Trumps New CIA Nominee, Gina Haspel, Faces Possible Arrest Warrant in Germany over Torture

While Kaleck noted an arrest warrant has not yet been issued at this time, he maintained that the warrant is only part of the message:

"Of course, we ask for an arrest warrant, but we have to ask for much more. I mean, the danger is now that a person who played a prominent role in the torture system of President George W. Bush will use the same methods in future. And so, the message has to be: We have to stop torture. And that means that our governments here in Europe and our judicial authorities do everything possible to communicate to President Trump and the rest of his government that notorious torturers aren’t allowed in this function to enter Europe.
...

And so, maybe this year, maybe next year, she is going to face serious trouble, political trouble, but also trouble with the legal authorities. And that is our task, to maintain this level of troublemaking."

NRA lawyer said to have had concerns about groups ties to Russia

Congressional investigators have learned that a longtime attorney for the National Rifle Association expressed concerns about the group’s ties to Russia and possible involvement in channeling Russian money into the 2016 elections to help Donald Trump, two sources familiar with the matter say.

Cleta Mitchell, a former NRA board member who has done legal work for the organization, is on a newly disclosed list of people whom Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee are seeking to interview. Democratic investigators for that committee’s Senate counterpart also are interested in what she may know about relationships between the NRA or its allies and wealthy Russians, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.
