To Christian Estrosi: stick these
photos up your bum.
As France shows its true racist colors and
as the world now better understands why France is a magnet for terrorist
attacks, Frog moron and right wing-nut politician Christian Estrosi steps
up and leverages his racism with threats against everyone's free
speech. According to The
Verge and other sources, Estrosi claims police have begun to prosecute
". . . those who spread the photographs of our municipal police
officers and those uttering threats against them on social networks"
-- referring to the now viral photographs of Frog cops busting a woman on
a beach at Nice because she is not showing enough skin.
So, Christian Estrosi, you can now add me
to your list of millions who have spread the photos, and you can stick
them up your bum.
And then there is right wing-nut case Nicolas
serial womanizer who knows a thing or two about women showing lots
of skin, and who is again running for president of France. Ole' randy Nick has added
to his platform a nationwide law demanding that all women show
enough skin on the beach to suit him.
Once there was a time when women showing too much skin were arrested and fined. Now
we've got hyper-secular moron politicians like Estrosi and Sarkozy who
actually think they have the power to force modest women to show some
undefined, minimal amount of skin.
I don't know about you, but if the French
think the state can force modest women to expose more skin, then I suddenly
have less sympathy for the French with respect to the murders of French white people by terrorists, and that's because I have
less sympathy in general for racists and xenophobes than I do for those
who embrace human diversity and basic individual rights, like the right
not to expose your body to strangers if you choose not to.
NYT depends on HuffPo data to predict
the demise of Trump
Ha, ha, ha . . .
Today Josh Katz at the NYT
predicts that Hillary has "a 90% chance of winning the
presidency." Katz presents pretty fivethirtyeight.com-like graphs,
and, like Nate Silver, Katz blathers on about "our model."
And so it looks to the unwary like Katz has made a strong case that Trump
does not have a snowball's chance in Florida, where, BTW, Katz claims
Trump is losing 78% to 22% while most of the polls Katz cites show a
But no analysis is any better than the data
that go into it, and to see where Katz's data come from you have to put on
your 20x reading glasses and dive to the very bottom of the article to
find out that "Polls compiled from the Huffington Post polling
database and Morning Consult." And with that 0.05 point-font
admission the whole NYT analysis is as screwed as Trump's bouffant in an
And the reason I say it is because HuffPo
is not a polling organization. It is not even a news organization. It is a
propaganda machine for Hillary Clinton and Debbie Schultz. HuffPo does not even pretend
to be objective or fair -- they are out to bring down Trump or any
Republican running for the White House or Congress, and that automatically
disqualifies HuffPo as a source of predictive voting data for any federal
Looking at a few HuffPo headlines from
today you will see what I mean:
If Anyone Can Save Us From A Trump
Presidency, It’s Women -- Emily Peck
Chrissy Telgen Not-So-Subtly Likens
Donald Trump To An 'American Psycho - She's not wrong -- Carly
Trump's Heart Of Darkness -- Bob
Trump Pitches to Blacks &
Latinos, Alienates Them Instead -- Siraj Hashmi
Trump Campaign Enters 'Death Spiral'
-- Marty Rudoy
Mind you, this is just a rather mild sample
of one day's worth of the type of anti-Trump invective HuffPo has been
dumping every day for the entire year. For months HuffPo has appended the
following "Editor's note" to its articles on Trump:
"Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of
an entire religion — from entering the U.S."
HuffPo is not an organization reporting about the
clowns; it is one of the clowns. Obviously, any predictions such as Katz's, based in any way or
on any amount of HuffPo "polling" data are not worth wasting a
single pixel on, and not worthy or your time.
Another pervert for
Olivia Nuzzi at The
Beast has published an excellent but disgusting piece about "an NBC contract" they claim was used for contestants on Trump's
The Apprentice. Basically, Nuzzi says that the contract required the
potential contestants to agree to all sorts of pervert provisions in order to compete for the
$125,000 first place prize and a 1-year employment agreement for
$125,000. It was, essentially, a play-to-play deal, and
Here are some of the provisions contestants
were required to agree to in order to get on the show:
to be filmed, “whether I am clothed,
partially clothed or naked, whether I am aware or unaware of such
videotaping, filming or recording” and to agree that “I further
acknowledge and understand that the film, tape, audio and other
recordings that will be made of me in connection with the Series might
in other circumstances be considered a serious invasion of my
undergo sexually transmitted disease
screenings, which tested for “HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HPV,
syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and herpes,”
accept “that Producer may impose one
or more Series Rules regarding the type of sexual activity, if any,
that participants will be permitted to engage in.”
The contestants could only bring to NYC
clothing and personal hygiene products, and their clothing had to be
approved by the producer. No cell phones, cash, credit cards, debit
cards, computers, other electronics.
Clearly, NBC had to know of this
"contract" and to approve, and that makes the NBC producers
involved equally disgusting, notwithstanding that NBC has severed contacts with
Trump. And even though Nuzzi's excellent article tries to throw some
legal smoke to protect them from Trump retaliation by saying the onerous, perverty
requirements were "almost certainly not mandated by Trump himself,"
how could Nuzzi know who mandated the provisions? It sure sounds like Trump to
me. As Nuzzi points out he is on the record for admitting that he
has required girlfriends to undergo AIDS testing.
And when I think of hardball Trump legal
tactics, the first person I think of is vicious "Says
who?" Michael Cohen, Trump's top lawyer and VP (and
potential Attorney General) who became famous when he tried to bury rape
allegations against Trump by making the absolutely idiotic and false
assertion to the Daily Beast that "by the very
definition, you can't rape your spouse."
So maybe Nuzzi put up that bit of cover
because she was thinking of the way Cohen threatened The Beast and its
reporters over the no-spousal-rape bullshit.
"I will make sure
that you and I meet one day while we’re in the courthouse. And I will
take you for every penny you still don’t have. And I will come after
your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know," Cohen
said. "So I’m warning you, tread very fucking lightly, because
what I’m going to do to you is going to be fucking disgusting. You
understand me?" -- Michael Cohen
