That disgusting Alito

 

BULLY BOY PRESS CEDRIC'S BIG MIX & THOMAS FRIEDMAN IS A GREAT MAN & ANN'S MEGA DUB  & THE WORLD TODAY JUST NUTS & THE COMMON ILLS  -- THE KOOL AID TABLE

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SAMUEL ALITO SPOKE TO THESE REPORTERS TONIGHT -- TAKING TIME OUT FROM GETTING A JASON ALDEAN TO DO SO.  (A JASON ALDEAN?  THAT'S WHEN YOU HAVE EXPLOSIVE DIAHREHA AND THEN GET A PROSTITUTE TO TOSS YOUR SALAD WITHOUT ANY WIPING TAKE PLACE.)


JUSTICE ALITO, IT'S BEEN REVEALED THAT YOU FLEW TWO FLAGS -- AN UPSIDE-DOWN STARS AND STRIPES AND THE SO-CALLED "APPEAL TO HEAVEN" FLAG -- TO SHOW YOUR BELIEF THAT THE 2020 ELECTION WAS STOLEN.  WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT?


SAMUEL ALITO: I DISPLAY LOTS OF FLAGS.  FOR 6 MONTHS, I PUT UP A FLAG THAT READ "I'M NOT A COMPLETE IDIOT -- SOME OF MY PIECES ARE MISSING."  AND A YEAR AGO, I HAD A HOMEMADE FLAG I PUT UP WITH ELMO'S FACE AND THE SLOGAN "TICKLE ME BALLS, ELMO."  


JUSTICE ALITO, THESE FLAGS WERE CARRIED BY THE INSURRECTIONISTS WHO ATTEMPTED TO OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT ON JANUARY 6, 2021.  TREASON IS NOT A LIGHT TERM.


SAMUEL ALITO: WHEN I'M PAYING A PROSTITUTE FOR AN ALBERTO GONZALES, IT IS.   THAT'S WHERE YOUR PARTNER -- PAID OR UNPAID -- APPLIES SEXUAL REFLEXOGLOGY TO YOUR STRESS POINTS AND CHOKES YOU WHILE YOU BEAT OFF.


IN ADDITION TO CONCERNS THAT THE FLAGS MEAN YOU SHOULD RECUSE YOURSELF FROM ALL JANUARY 6TH CASES, THERE ARE OTHER CONCERNS AS WELL.  FOR EXAMPLE, YOU TOOK AN OATH TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION, HOWEVER, THE "APPEAL TO HEAVEN" FLAG INDICATES THAT YOU HAVE NO RESPECT FOR THE LAW AND THAT YOU ARE SERVING SOME CULT THAT WANTS TO ROLL BACK THE RIGHTS OF PEOPLE OF COLOR, WOMEN AND THE LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY.  RYAN BORT, TESSA STUART AND ANDREW PEREZ (ROLLING STONE) NOTE:

 

The “Appeal to Heaven” flag is white with an evergreen tree at its center. The flag was initially a Revolutionary War banner, with the motto taken from philosopher John Locke. Recently, however, the flag has been co-opted by far-right Christian nationalists looking to impose their will on the United States by any means necessary. Rolling Stone reported last fall that House Speaker Mike Johnson flew the flag outside of his office in Congress, and that he has ties to the New Apostolic Reformation, a network of Christian leaders who believe that God has given Christians a “mandate” to “conquer” the government and other aspects of life.  

 

JUSTICE SAMUEL ALITO: I BELIEVE YOU HAVE MISUNDESTOOD ME SEVERELY.  FIRST OFF, I SUPPORT WORKING WOMEN.  DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY I SPEND ON PROSTITUTES IN A SINGLE WEEK?  AS FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR, I AM A VICTIM OF RACISM -- DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO BE ITALIAN IN 2024?  AND, ON TOP OF THAT, ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS IS BLACK -- SORT OF.  CLARENCE THOMAS IS KIND-OF BLACK, RIGHT?  AS FOR THE GAYS, YOU DON'T GET MAGA.  WE ARE ALL FOR THE GAYS.  WE ARE ALL FOR -- CHECK US ON TWITTER -- YOU CAN GOOGLE "MAGA" AND "F*G" OR "RED PILL" -- AND YOU'LL SEE OUR PLAN INCLUDES AN AMERICA WITH THE GAYS.  THEY'LL BE STRIPPED OF THEIR RIGHTS AND TURNED INTO SEX SLAVES FOR MEN LIKE ME.  IT'S NOT GAY TO GET A BLOW JOB, JUST TO GIVE ONE.  WE'RE GOING TO OVERTURN F*G RIGHTS AND THAT'S WHERE WE'RE AT.  AN INCLUSIVE AMERICA WHERE WE -- WHITE POWER FOR WHITE MEN -- WILL BE SITTING AT THE TOP AND EVERYONE ELSE WILL BE SERVING US AS THE INFERIORS THAT THEY ARE.  NOW, IF YOU'LL EXCUSE ME, I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A JASON ALDEAN AND MY WET DUKEY ANUS ISN'T GOING TO LICK ITSELF.

    Daddy pretends his nepo baby achieved something finally

    The disgraced Will Smith is out praising nepo Willow.  Her new album.  A rock album.  It's not a hit.  Three singles and none charted.  She made it onto the jazz chart with the rock album which means somebody got paid off.  Outside the US, it has charted in no country.  Inside the US?  It didn't chart on the top 200 album chart, on the US Alt Rock Chart, on the US Indie chart or on the US Rock chart.  At the age of 24, it's probably time for her to start looking for a real job.  Maybe she can get that grill fixed when she's pulling down a nine to five?




    This week, Smith’s latest album has become a win on some very unexpected charts. At the same time, it’s also a bit of a disappointment, as the title didn’t manage to perform quite as well as some of her past works on other, more closely-watched tallies.

    Smith’s new project Empathogen debuts in a pair of Billboard rankings this week. The set is new at No. 1 on the Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, which ranks, as its title suggests, the top-consumed jazz full-lengths from the “contemporary” era.

    [. . .]

    While Empathogen may be a quick win on two of Billboard’s jazz-only lists, it didn’t reach other, more competitive tallies. The set fails to crack either the Billboard 200 or Top Album Sales charts, which are usually considered the most important rosters for full-lengths in the U.S.


    Get a real job, you spoiled brat.

    This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"

     

    Thursday, May 23, 2024.  Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito sports contempt for the American people, the Israeli government continues attacking hospitals and healthcare workers, students continue protesting around the world, and much more.

    Friday morning Amy Goodman (DEMOCRACY NOW!) noted:


    In other Supreme Court news, The New York Times is reporting an upside-down U.S. flag, which is a symbol used by Trump supporters and election deniers, hung outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito in January 2021, just days before Biden’s inauguration. The revelations are expected to reignite calls for Alito to recuse himself from cases related to the January 6 insurrection, including Trump’s attempt to claim immunity from election subversion charges.

     

    Alito is corrupt and not fit to serve.  Ruth covered this topic on Saturday "Like Thomas, Alito must recuse himself from all Jan. 6th cases" and she asked me for a comment (I wrote about it Friday in the gina & krista round-robin):

    There are a number of issues here and multiple red flags.  Alito should recuse himself from any January 6th cases.  Alito states that his wife hung the flag upside down.  He states that it was done in relation to some other protest and has nothing to do with the January 6th attempted insurrection.  He is asking the American people to believe him on that.  That's too big of an ask.  There is the appearance of a conflict of interest and he may very well be lying.  I'm texting you a link to add to what I'm about to say.  Lying?  While attempting to be confirmed to the Supreme Court in 2006, he told Senator Ted Kennedy that ROE V WADE was settled law.  Then came his voting to overturn ROE.  That decision eroded confidence in the Court across the country.  He really is in no place to beg the American people to believe him.  Did his wife do the flag?  He was a judge before he got on the Supreme Court.  His wife knows the rules.  And if she did do it, that actually raises more concerns.  His work colleague is Clarence.  Ginni Thomas was part of the January 6th attempted insurrection.  Was Martha-Ann Alito also part of that insurrection attempt?  Do we need to be concerned as a country over just how deep that insurrection attempt actually was?  These and other questions immediately follow.  So there is the appearance of a conflict of interest.  That requires Alito to step aside on all January 6th cases.  His job is not just to rule.  His job is to rule and to ensure trust in the Court.  Refusing to recuse himself would be failing at his job. And the integrity of the Court is as important as any ruling it issues.  As a member of the Court, Alito has to maintain the integrity of the Court and he can't do that without recusing himself from all January 6th cases.


    That was me to Ruth on Saturday.  Alito's a liar.  That's no longer opinion, there's a new story.




    Israel’s war cabinet has instructed negotiators to resume talks on a deal to release hostages held in Gaza, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said early Thursday. The statement came after the families of five female Israeli soldiers released footage of their capture by Hamas on Oct. 7, in hopes it would push authorities to restart stalled negotiations."  Hamza Hendawi (THE NATIONAL) reports:
     Shona Murray (EURONEWS) reports:

    Netanyahu and his corrupt government have lied repeatedly.  Remember the claim that they didn't attack hospitals?  ALZAZEERA notes:

    AMY GOODMAN: This is Democracy Now!, democracynow.org, The War and Peace Report. I’m Amy Goodman, with Juan GonzĂĄlez.

    We now look at the ongoing crackdown on student-led protests in solidarity with Palestine across U.S. college campuses. An encampment at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is the latest to be violently dismantled by police, and President Santa Ono claimed the peaceful action had become a threat to public safety. Dozens of officers dressed in riot gear, wielding batons, raided the encampment before dawn Tuesday, pepper-spraying and pushing students to the ground as they tore down the camp.

    PROTESTERS: [shouting] Move, cops! Get out the way! Move, cops! Get out the way! We know you’re Israel-trained! We know you’re Israel-trained! Move, cops! Get out the way! Go!

    AMY GOODMAN: At least four people were arrested Tuesday, while two others were hospitalized after being pepper-sprayed by police. Student protesters set up the encampment about a month ago, demanding the University of Michigan’s endowment divest from companies with ties to Israel. This comes as the school’s president, Santa Ono, is slated to appear before Congress tomorrow alongside the presidents of UCLA and Yale to testify about their responses to the student-led protests and how they’re addressing reports of antisemitism on campus.

    For more, we’re joined by Salma Hamamy, Palestinian American student at the University of Michigan, who just graduated earlier this month. Salma is the president of the Students for Justice in Palestine chapter at the University of Michigan. On Tuesday morning, she was pepper-sprayed and beaten by police who raided the university pro-Palestine encampment, joining us from Southfield, Michigan.

    Welcome back to Democracy Now!, Salma. Can you describe what happened yesterday? And just to be clear, this has all happened after graduation at Mich?

    SALMA HAMAMY: Hi. Yes, it did all happen after graduation. Students at the encampment have been holding down the encampment long after, even after graduation.

    And at approximately 5:40 a.m., police came in full riot gear, actually while we were having a church service on the Diag, moving them out and essentially giving us a 10-minute warning, saying that we must be cleared off of the encampment. However, that 10 minutes, surprisingly, turned into five minutes, and they immediately began to charge at the protesters and at the students with their batons and pepper spray. Nearly every step forward that they took, chemicals were being sprayed in every direction. As students were falling to the floor in agony and in pain, they continued to push forward, beating students with batons. And us, standing, we were trying to, you know, hold up onto the students who have fallen down and lift them and take them over to safety. Yet they even began to arrest students in that very moment. So, it was very difficult to keep track of who’s being arrested, because, you know, we unfortunately could not see in those moments due to the chemical attacks directly sprayed onto our eyes. And they constantly pushed us further and further back. It took them about half an hour to entirely remove us from the encampment, as we tried our absolute hardest to remain strong and remain standing at the encampment. However, as we were pushed further and further back, students, unfortunately, were unable to remain standing due to the pepper spray and due to the intense beating with the batons, as well. Students’ phones were even confiscated as we were recording them.

    I, personally, myself, was holding a megaphone, and kept a reasonable distance from the cops, as well, as I was chanting, specifically emphasizing why I was there and why I was protesting at the encampment. I repeatedly said that my family has been killed, and that is why I’m here. And as I was saying that through the megaphone, police officers snatched the megaphone out from my hand and threw it behind them.

    So, not only was it an attack on the encampment, but it was an attack on us as students protesting entirely. And it was quite a traumatic experience, to say the least, but, unfortunately, not one that was surprising at all given the response that the university has taken against student protesters within the last eight months. This is not the first time that the university has unleashed violent police against students. And currently, as you mentioned, four are now facing felony charges. Three were actually hospitalized. And, you know, due to the inhaling of the pepper spray, several of us are unable to properly breathe at the moment due to the tactics that they deployed.

    JUAN GONZÁLEZ: And, Salma, I wanted to ask you — you mentioned that this repression didn’t just start with the encampment. Many universities, for months now, have been cracking down on even the most minor protests occurring on their campuses. What’s been happening in Michigan over the past eight months?

    SALMA HAMAMY: Over the past eight months, we have seen police brutally beat students to the floor, rip their hijabs off in the process, causing several students to have been hospitalized over the course of eight months. We currently now have eight total students facing felony charges and dozens more facing disciplinary repercussions by the university themselves. Even within the smallest protests of us marching into buildings during public, open hours, we have been met with police violence. Us protesting outside, we have been met with police violence.

    It seems that as though wherever we stand, the university refuses to engage in dialogue with us to discuss divestment, as we have been demanding for the last eight months. And instead of meeting with us at the table and meeting with us at the encampment, they decided to meet us with violent force and chemical attacks.

    AMY GOODMAN: Where do you go from here, Salma? You just graduated. You also helped to organize the protest at the University of Michigan graduation.

    SALMA HAMAMY: Yeah. So, one of the reasons that the university decides to attack our encampment is because it is a physical display of our commitment, of our dedication and of our motivation entirely. So, by them thinking that they could take down the encampment, it is in no way ever going to take down our movement or our commitment, because that lies within the people and that lies within ourselves. And we are still standing. So, regardless if we happen to have the tents laid up or we have an encampment or we have various forms of protest, it is always going to remain strong, and it is going to remain stronger than ever, every single time the police try to oppress us, and especially when it is caused by our university.

    So, graduates, alumni, staff members, faculty members, broader community members are all remaining united and are remaining united for the Palestinian cause and for the people of Gaza. And we are going to continue to fight back, and especially against these charges that have been placed against these students for protesting a genocide and for protesting our university’s funding of a genocide. So, we will remain strong, and we will remain wherever it is that the movement lies, because it lies within ourselves.

    AMY GOODMAN: Do you think part of the dismantling of the encampment had to do with President Ono, president of the University of Michigan, having to testify before Congress tomorrow?

    SALMA HAMAMY: Absolutely. I think it is a tactic that they are trying to uphold to protect themselves. However, one thing that is going to be made evidently clear, as it has made evidently clear with every single other raid at the encampment, is that it is not a good look for the university to come in and send police in riot gear. Of course, it is a fear tactic that Congress is trying to put against these university presidents. However, again, it’s not going to deter students away. And it is not a coincidence that around this time President Ono is sending police officers to not only physically danger and harm students, but also having dozens of students be faced with disciplinary charges from the university themselves and also eight felony charges from the prosecutor’s office.

    AMY GOODMAN: Salma Hamamy, we want to thank you for being with his, Palestinian American student at University of Michigan, who just graduated earlier this month, and one of the organizers of the protest at the graduation.

     Like others around the world, we’ve been watching as neoliberal and corporate-controlled universities repress, silence, and violate peaceful protesters who are answering calls of conscience. As educators working in our various locales to break free from the structural chains of assembly-line school systems, we’re moved to unequivocally condemn those who order and undertake the beating and arresting of students, faculty, and supporters.

    These are the very actions, as well as turning staff against the communities they serve and keeping students from reaching their beds, food, and medications—making campuses “unsafe” and not, as administrators claim, peaceful campus teach-ins and sit-ins.

    We applaud and support students and others who are risking vilification, attacks by police and by right-wing extremists, arrest, and expulsion from their universities in defense of human rights and a swift end to the genocidal assault on Palestinians.

    What kind of schooling violently subjugates those who lawfully express peace-oriented dissent?

    We’re encouraged by this growing movement, which reveals an awakening among students of anti-colonial awareness and worldwide solidarity. On the other hand, the horrific repressive reactions of their institutions starkly reveal the oligarchic infrastructure on which Western formal education is built.

    Let’s Reflect on the Purpose of Education

    What is this modeling of violence in their own lives impressing on students? Such imperialist brutality is amplified to a much greater degree on the people whose lives and freedom they’re upholding.

    What is education for, if it silences discourse on justice, freedom, and equity? What kind of schooling violently subjugates those who lawfully express peace-oriented dissent?

    Universities should be spaces for intellectual and compassionate debate. Yet we are witnessing extensive censorship, abuse of power, the squelching of critical thinking, student suspensions, and arrests and firing of faculty members who support peaceful protest. 



    Gaza remains under assault. Day 230 of  the assault in the wave that began in October.  Binoy Kampmark (DISSIDENT VOICE) points out, "Bloodletting as form; murder as fashion.  The ongoing campaign in Gaza by Israel’s Defence Forces continues without stalling and restriction.  But the burgeoning number of corpses is starting to become a challenge for the propaganda outlets:  How to justify it?  Fortunately for Israel, the United States, its unqualified defender, is happy to provide cover for murder covered in the sheath of self-defence."   CNN has explained, "The Gaza Strip is 'the most dangerous place' in the world to be a child, according to the executive director of the United Nations Children's Fund."  ABC NEWS quotes UNICEF's December 9th statement, ""The Gaza Strip is the most dangerous place in the world to be a child. Scores of children are reportedly being killed and injured on a daily basis. Entire neighborhoods, where children used to play and go to school have been turned into stacks of rubble, with no life in them."  NBC NEWS notes, "Strong majorities of all voters in the U.S. disapprove of President Joe Biden’s handling of foreign policy and the Israel-Hamas war, according to the latest national NBC News poll. The erosion is most pronounced among Democrats, a majority of whom believe Israel has gone too far in its military action in Gaza."  The slaughter continues.  It has displaced over 1 million people per the US Congressional Research Service.  Jessica Corbett (COMMON DREAMS) points out, "Academics and legal experts around the world, including Holocaust scholars, have condemned the six-week Israeli assault of Gaza as genocide."   The death toll of Palestinians in Gaza is grows higher and higher.  United Nations Women noted, "More than 1.9 million people -- 85 per cent of the total population of Gaza -- have been displaced, including what UN Women estimates to be nearly 1 million women and girls. The entire population of Gaza -- roughly 2.2 million people -- are in crisis levels of acute food insecurity or worse."  THE NATIONAL notes, "Gaza death toll reaches 35,709, with 79,990 wounded ."  Months ago,  AP  noted, "About 4,000 people are reported missing."  February 7th, Jeremy Scahill explained on DEMOCRACY NOW! that "there’s an estimated 7,000 or 8,000 Palestinians missing, many of them in graves that are the rubble of their former home."  February 5th, the United Nations' Phillipe Lazzarini Tweeted:

      




    On bodies trapped under rubble, ALJAZEERA notes this morning:

    We’re talking about a three-storey building that housed not only residents but also dozens of other displaced Palestinians in Rafah that made it to Nuseirat three days ago.

    I met the neighbours. I met the family. I met one of the relatives of people still trapped under the rubble earlier today. They were telling me heartbreaking things.

    Imagine escaping the air strikes in Rafah, looking for a safe space but being killed after three days of evacuating – not only being killed but being trapped where the Civil Defence teams do not have any equipment to remove or pull these people from under the rubble.

    I saw Civil Defence teams doing their best to pull people from under the rubble. They were digging with their bare hands, with very basic tools. This was not the first time we have seen this scene. We have been seeing this for more than seven months now.

    Unfortunately, it may come to a point where the Civil Defence teams will give up on this house because there are more people being targeted every single hour across the Gaza Strip.


    April 11th, Sharon Zhang (TRUTHOUT) reported, "In addition to the over 34,000 Palestinians who have been counted as killed in Israel’s genocidal assault so far, there are 13,000 Palestinians in Gaza who are missing, a humanitarian aid group has estimated, either buried in rubble or mass graves or disappeared into Israeli prisons.  In a report released Thursday, Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor said that the estimate is based on initial reports and that the actual number of people missing is likely even higher."
     

    As for the area itself?  Isabele Debre (AP) reveals, "Israel’s military offensive has turned much of northern Gaza into an uninhabitable moonscape. Whole neighborhoods have been erased. Homes, schools and hospitals have been blasted by airstrikes and scorched by tank fire. Some buildings are still standing, but most are battered shells."  Kieron Monks (I NEWS) reports, "More than 40 per cent of the buildings in northern Gaza have been damaged or destroyed, according to a new study of satellite imagery by US researchers Jamon Van Den Hoek from Oregon State University and Corey Scher at the City University of New York. The UN gave a figure of 45 per cent of housing destroyed or damaged across the strip in less than six weeks. The rate of destruction is among the highest of any conflict since the Second World War."
