from Bruce

Harry Leslie Smith: In 1939, I didn't hear war coming. Now its thundering approach can't be ignored (The Guardian)
Chilling signs are everywhere, perhaps the biggest being that the US allows itself to be led by Donald Trump, a man deficient in honour, wisdom and just simple human kindness. It is as foolish for Americans to believe that their generals will save them from Trump as it was for liberal Germans to believe the military would protect the nation from Hitler's excesses.

Julia Carrie Wong and Olivia Solon: US government demands details on all visitors to anti-Trump protest website (The Guardian)
Privacy advocates call warrant for IP addresses of 1.3 million people who visited inauguration protest website an unconstitutional 'fishing expedition.'

Kevin Rawlinson: Donald Trump retweets alt-right provocateur after condemning white supremacists (The Guardian)
US president accused of trying to signal appreciation for alt-right supporters by highlighting article about crime in Chicago.

Arwa Damon, Brent Swails and Brice Laine: This city is a tinderbox, and the US is building a drone base next door (CNN)
Just minutes from the city, faint tire tracks blow away in the wind, and the vast expanse of sand quickly becomes disorienting. The sprawling desert north of Agadez, in the west African nation of Niger, is the size of France -- and the search is on for a single stranded truck. We're lucky; our military convoy is armed and equipped with GPS, along with rough coordinates of which way to head. But as night falls and we begin to burn through our petrol reserves revving through the deep sand, uncertainty spreads.

Michele Hanson: Who wants to live in an artificially intelligent future? (The Guardian)
An AI world sounds like hell - making humans redundant only serves the interests of an already rich, powerful and creepy tech industry.

Julie Bindel: "Salma Hayek is right: compared with women, men are lazy and entitled" (The Guardian)
Despite decades of feminism, the sexes are still profoundly unequal, in everything from appearance to pay, housework to childcare.

John Sutherland: Fanny Hill: why people keep trying to ban the racy novel about 'a woman of pleasure' (The Guardian)
A London university is said to have struck John Cleland's 1748 novel off its reading list for fear of offending sensitive millennials. Censorship, mollycoddling or silly-season tosh?

Rachel Cooke: Driving Short Distances by Joff Winterhart review - a masterful picture of manhood (The Guardian)
In its superbly funny but tender portrait of the everyday struggles of men, this book is perfect.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

On what continent did the watermelon originate?

       Africa                                                      Source

Watermelon Citrullus lanatus var. lanatus is a scrambling and trailing vine in the flowering plantfamily Cucurbitaceae. The species originated in southern Africa, and there is evidence of its cultivation in Ancient Egypt. It is grown in tropical and sub-tropical areas worldwide for its large edible fruit, also known as a watermelon, which is a special kind of berry with a hard rind and no internal division, botanically called a pepo. The sweet, juicy flesh is usually deep red to pink, with many black seeds. The fruit can be eaten raw or pickled and the rind is edible after cooking.        Source

Mark. was first and correct with:
   The watermelon probably originated in southern Africa.

Journalist Singled Out In T-rump Campaign Video

April Ryan

A black journalist has been singled out as an "enemy of the White House" in a new campaign video for Donald Trump (R-Crooked) only a day after a far-right rally in Charlottesville, Virgina, turned violent.

The video released by Trump's official campaign and his reelection committee aims to highlight some of the US President's achievements during his time in office.

The video called "Let President Trump do his job" flashes small pictures of a dozen journalists hitting out at "the media attacking our President" and making references to "the President's enemies" who "don't want him to succeed".

This includes a picture of journalist April Ryan, a veteran White House correspondent for the American Urban Radio Networks and a political analyst for CNN.

Ms Ryan, who is black, responded to the video in a tweet in which she slammed the "racial hate" promoted by the Trump campaign team and added she had been singled out as "an enemy of the White House".

Poised For Another Big Primetime Shake-Up

Rupert 'News'

Fox News is poised to shift its primetime lineup again following the suspension of a top personality who is accused of sexually harassing colleagues.

"Fox News Specialists" host Eric Bolling was suspended earlier this month following allegations that he sent unsolicited photos of male genitalia to colleagues at Fox Business Network and Fox News.

The suspension sparked questions about the future of "Specialists" and whether Fox would take steps to bolster the 5 p.m. time slot, and late on Monday, CNN's Brian Stelter reported that conservative pundit Laura Ingraham was set to join Fox News' primetime lineup.

Earlier Monday, Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge, who has repeatedly broken major news about the Fox News lineup over the past year, alluded to Ingraham's potential spot in primetime.

Two sources familiar with the situation told Business Insider the lineup was up in the air but many suspected "The Five" would move back to its old 5 p.m. slot, bumping "Fox News Specialists" and making way for Ingraham to occupy the 9 p.m. slot, where "The Five" moved earlier this year. Ingraham's show could also air at 10 p.m., moving host Sean Hannity into the 9 p.m. slot.

Another Moment in the Spotlight

Blanco Bronco

Monday's episode of Pawn Stars will feature the white Ford Bronco that carried O.J. Simpson during his infamous 1994 car chase across Los Angeles' freeways.

Rick Harrison, pawn-shop owner and the show's star, is expected to assess the vehicle and take it for a drive. Viewers will then discover whether Harrison chooses to buy the car.

Harrison told USA Today that Mike Gilbert, Simpson's former agent, approached him about the sale. Gibson apparently bought the car from A.C. Cowlings, who drove the car during the slow-moving chase more than 20 years ago.

Harrison estimates that the car could go for anywhere between $300,000 to $1 million at auction. "I try and stay away from stuff (connected to) bad people, but it's so iconic," Harrison told USA Today. "The O.J. Bronco is really a bizarre part of history. My 14-year-old son doesn't know anything about the '90s … but he knows about the Bronco."

Princess Marries Dutchman


The daughter of one of Malaysia's most powerful sultans married her Dutch fiance Monday in a tradition-filled ceremony during a day of lavish celebrations witnessed by crowds of excited well-wishers.

Princess Tunku Tun Aminah Sultan Ibrahim, 31, the only daughter of the Sultan of Johor, tied the knot with Dennis Muhammad Abdullah, 28, capping a romance of over three years.

The Dutchman, who has converted to Islam, and the princess wed according to Muslim Malay custom at the Serene Hill Palace, the royal family's residence in the southern city of Johor Bahru. The private ceremony was attended by close family and friends.

The groom wore traditional white Malay wedding attire and the bride wore a white dress, with Dennis Muhammad placing the ring on his bride's finger in a special room of the palace and offering a dowry of around $5, in line with centuries-old local customs.

The Dutchman, who now works for a property development company in Johor, was born Dennis Verbaas and adopted a Muslim name when he converted to Islam in 2015. He proposed to Tunku Aminah in December last year.



Digby's Hullabaloo


Web Firm Fights Government


A web hosting firm is fighting a demand by US prosecutors for data on visitors to a site organizing a protest during the inauguration of President Donald Trump in a fresh clash over digital privacy rights.

The firm DreamHost said it was challenging a warrant seeking to identify the visitors of the protest site DisruptJ20, which organized a demonstration against Trump at the time of his swearing-in on January 20.

DreamHost said in a statement Monday that US Justice Department was asking for more than 1.3 million visitor IP addresses, along with email addresses and other data "in an effort to determine who simply visited the website."

"That information could be used to identify any individuals who used this site to exercise and express political speech protected under the Constitution's First Amendment," the statement said.

"That should be enough to set alarm bells off in anyones mind."

Defaced With Expletive

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial in the U.S. capital was spray painted with expletive graffiti that was discovered on Tuesday, days after violence broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, over an American Civil War-era monument.

The graffiti appeared to read "fuck law" spray painted in red on a column of the memorial to Abraham Lincoln, the American president who signed the Emancipation Proclamation freeing slaves in the United States.

The National Park Service said in a statement that it was removing the graffiti from the monument and a Smithsonian Institution directional sign blocks away that was also vandalised with spray paint.

The graffiti marks the second time this year that the Lincoln Memorial, one of Washington, D.C.'s major tourist attractions, was defaced. In February, the monument to Lincoln, the Washington Monument and the World War II Memorial, were vandalised with a marker pen.

Quit Manufacturing Council

5 CEOs

Donald Trump's (R-Corrupt) manufacturing council of business leaders lost three of its members Monday, and two more on Tuesday, amid fallout from his handling of the white-supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend.

Trump responded Tuesday to the three departures with a tweet, saying that he has other leaders to take their spots on the council.

Scott Paul, the president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, tweeted shortly after Trump's statement that he will be the fourth executive to leave the council.

On Tuesday evening, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka also announced he was leaving the council after Trump defended his original statement on the violence in Charlottesville, blaming both sides. "We cannot sit on a council for a President who tolerates bigotry and domestic terrorism," the organization said in a statement. "President Trump's remarks today repudiate his forced remarks yesterday about the KKK and neo-Nazis. We must resign on behalf of America's working people, who reject all notions of legitimacy of these bigoted groups."

Anti-Semitic Signs In Hotel

Swiss Alps

A Jewish family staying at a hotel in the Swiss Alps encountered more than one sign at the facility that appeared to be anti-Semitic. One note was placed on the refrigerator at the Aparthaus Paradeis hotel, while the other was tacked to the entrance to the hotel pool.

"To our Jewish guests: Please take a shower before you go swimming and although [sic] after swimming," the sign by the pool read. "If you break the rules, I'm forced to cloes [sic] the swimming pool for you. Thank you for understanding: Ruth Thomann."

Another sign on a refrigerator hotel stated that Jewish guests were only allowed to use it during certain hours to avoid bothering hotel staff.

The man said he attempted to contact the hotel's manager but she was not at the hotel.

"It's very strange," he said. "Even the goyim can't understand [why these signs are here]. There is a really nice group of Jews here from all over the world - there are barely any Israelis. Everyone is acting really respectfully. This is a very weird phenomenon. This is anti-Semitism that we had never been exposed to before."

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
