Three recent dispatches from Slate!

Plus, the world's many teen-aged victims:
Just to keep you up to date, here are three more recent posts from Slate:
FRED KAPLAN / JAN. 26, 2020 / 7:00 PM
Let's Not Forget: Donald Trump Still Has the Power to Destroy the World

What, Exactly, Did Nick Jonas Have in His Teeth?

I’m a Heterosexual Woman Who’s Politically Opposed to Heterosexuality
Three recent posts from Slate. People, we're just saying!

Kaplan's piece is adapted from his new book, The Bomb: Presidents, Generals, and the Secret History of Nuclear War. As you may recall, the entire liberal world, including Rachel and all her colleagues, disappeared Kaplan when he offered this instant critique of Comey the God back in July 2016.

Kaplan's critique was highly relevant, but it went unmentioned, and Kaplan himself went uninterviewed. In those days, careerists didn't mess with Comey the God, a "made man" inside Establishment Washington. This helps explain why Donald J. Trump has the power described in that new headline.

As for the other two posts, you can probably pick up our point.

We'll also note this post about the late Kobe Bryant's daughter, who lost her life yesterday. Our comment would be this:

When we stage our various wars, 13-year-old children all over the world end up dying beside their parents. This happened all over Iraq not long ago because the people we still revere and copy on Our Own Cable Channel spent several years punishing Candidate Gore for the perceived sins of President Clinton.

Before that, upper-end journalists hid in the bushes outside Gary Hart's home to see if he maybe did have a girl friend. Anthropologically speaking, these are key facts about the wiring of our currently flailing species.

The dying to which we've referred goes on all over the world. Our world has a long way to go, and our tribal stars helped arrange to send Trump to the White House.

Also in The Autumn of '99: It was during this time that our biggest stars began referring to Hillary Clinton as Evita Peron, as Nurse Ratched, and as someone who reminded them of their first wives.

This continued for quite a few years before anyone so much as said boo. People wanted to get on Hardball, and Olbermann was a new star.

Our tribal leaders are ostentatiously MeToo now, but they kept their traps shut then. This too helps explain how Donald Trump got to the Oval.

    Well, yeah. Someone had to end your totalitarian zombie cult, dear Bob. Why not Donald Trump?

    Outta curiosity: who would you suggest should've done it? One of your brain-dead zombie clowns, I imagine: Al Demigod Gore, Bernie Demigod Sanders, right? Oh dear...

  2. “It was during this time that our biggest stars began referring to Hillary Clinton as Evita Peron, as Nurse Ratched, and as someone who reminded them of their first wives.”

    “Our biggest stars...” (eye roll).

    If what Somerby is suggesting is true, it sounds as though the news business in 1999 was...sexist.

    But when some suggest the movie business is sexist, he just chalks that up to typical tribal liberal propaganda.

    When Klobuchar suggested recently additional difficulties that women face, Somerby called that “bellyaching.”

    When liberals suggest that misogyny played a role in Hillary’s defeat, he deflects from this by reminding people that Edwards was labeled the “Breck girl”, and Al Gore was accused of “hiring a woman to teach him how to be a man”, and lists every reason except misogyny to explain Hillary’s loss.

    “Our tribal leaders are ostentatiously MeToo now, but they kept their traps shut then. This too helps explain how Donald Trump got to the Oval.”

    Speaking out against sexual misconduct/assault is a good thing, and need not be measured against the supposed behavior of “tribal leaders” twenty years ago. Times change. Attitudes change. There are far more women in the media and in politics now than back then.

    And it’s common knowledge that “identity politics” didn’t begin in 1999, but rather fifty years ago, so somewhere, in the morass that is the Internet, you will find people criticizing the attacks on Hillary Clinton back then. Somerby just likes to pretend it never happened, so he can accuse liberals of hypocrisy.

    1. Nobody in Kevin Drum's survey considered sexism a problem, but then, it wasn't listed as one of the possible choices. Then, when things like pre-K and family leave weren't high, he mused about whether his readership might skew old. Then no one in the comments mentioned the male skew either. And, it seems, just as sexism is considered a female thing and not an issue for men and women both, so too, family leave and pre-K are presumably female things, not of any interest to men. Because family -- that's for chicks, right?

      Clinton never thought that way and perhaps that's why men were so desperate to keep her out of office. Heaven forbid men have to start caring about their kids, more than just playing a little ball in the street with them.

    2. "Heaven forbid men have to start caring about their kids, more than just playing a little ball in the street with them."

      I find this remark to be extremely sexist...

    3. When men do more than 25% of the housework and child care, you will have a legitimate complaint.

  3. Why does Somerby read Slate if it upsets him so much? It isn't really part of the mainstream media.

  4. "When we stage our various wars, 13-year-old children all over the world end up dying beside their parents. "

    How dare Somerby use the death of Gigi Bryant to advance his peculiar agenda! She died because there was fog over LA and the helicopter pilot didn't switch to instrument controls. He couldn't see what he was doing and flew into the side of a hill.

    There was nothing political about the child's death. She and friends of her father were on the way to attend a basketball game.

    This has nothing to do with anything Somerby might think about liberals or anyone else. It is a tragedy -- an apolitical tragedy. She is mourned by many in the Los Angeles area, as is her father.

    So shut up Somerby, you old fart.

  5. "Before that, upper-end journalists hid in the bushes outside Gary Hart's home to see if he maybe did have a girl friend. "

    This is interesting. Today there are articles appearing about Pompeo's belief that he should be able to lie to the public and the press with impunity. In fact, the entire Trump administration seems to believe it can lie to the press and public, as long as they aren't under oath. So there is a call for Pompeo to be questioned as a witness under oath, arising in part from his treatment of that NPR journalist.

    So, how is a journalist supposed to treat a public figure who won't answer questions honestly, who not only lies but challenges the journalist to prove he is lying (as Hart did)? Somerby calls this sneaking in the bushes, but they were mainly lying in wait outside an apartment Hart was occupying, trying to catch him with a girlfriend whose existence was common knowledge. Somerby may think that the press has no need to know about a public figure's extramarital dalliances, but the larger issue is whether public figures can and should be permitted to lie to the press and say "what are you going to do about it" when challenged on their lies. The main tool of the press is research and surely following a candidate around is research when that candidate shows an utter lack of truthfulness and then says words to the effect of "in your face" to the press. It is fair to ask, if Hart lied about that and showed no respect for the press, then what else was he lying about?

    Some candidates lie about college degrees. Some lie about accomplishments. Some lie about who they are taking money from. Some lie about whether they are colluding with Russia to manipulate an election. Some lie about their health. How does a press that is dedicated to printing as close to the truth as they can get, determine what candidates are lying about?

    Somerby thinks it is OK for Hart to lie, perhaps because all men lie to and about women. Women have never agreed with that premise. Why should Somerby dictate where the search for truth begins and ends when covering a presidential campaign. Hart dropped out because he was discovered to be a sleaze. End of story.

  9. Hello, my name is RITA CARMEN and I have been trying to get pregnant for over 12 years. i have been looking for ways online for so long, I first did Depo Provera Shot which i consecutively took every three months in order to get pregnant or fertile, but there was no way from it. I did Depo shot for 3 years constantly until my Doctors in Australia told me to try IVF because I had Endometriosis stage 4 and I resulted to try IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). For months after my IVF no progressed and my situation became worse that my husband had already had plans or getting married to another woman because I was barren. I read a testimony about Prophet Abulele how he had helped so many women with pregnancy problems and also how he usually casts return spells to bring back partner and make one fertile. Of all options tried, I gave Prophet Abulele a try. I am now a mother of a baby boy. For over 13 years of my marriage I received my help from this spell caster. I want to impact on someone's life and make the person get help from a good spell caster. Prophet Abulele's email is:- prophetabulelehealingtemple@gmail.com and his WhatsApp is +2349022406159 once you contact him, he will help you fast.
