  • Clinton won't rule out questioning legitimacy of election

    Yep, and she attended the anti-Trump "womyn" march in Washington D.C. and eagerly tweeted about how awesome it was seeing a bunch of women dressed up as vaginas. That's his pastor.

    Another fun fact: Gorsuch attends this SJW church despite the fact there's a more conservative, pro-traditional marriage church in the same denomination as his (Episcopalian) in the same town, so he could easily switch churches if he wanted to

    It never ceases to amaze me that Trump fanboys always point to this guy as "proof" that Trump did something conservative.

    >> She would not have given us Gorsuch. <<

    I wouldn't have given us Gorsuch either, I would have picked a Scalia type pro-life conservative instead of a guy who says abortion and gay marriage are "super settled law" and attends an ultra-leftist "social justice" church where he listens to sermons all day about tree-hugging and rights for "Dreamers"

    Didn’t she say a week before the election that its “a danger to our democracy” if the loser of a Presidential election refuses to accept the outcome?

    >> I do not think you can kick people out of the country that were 4 years old when they got here and have never lived a day in Mexico <<

    If they were "four years old" when they got here, then presumably, they lived in Mexico for at least four years.

    >> Read today that J.J. Abrams has been summoned back for Episode IX duty. <<

    Fine with me, keeps him messing around in the Star Wars universe instead of the Star Trek universe. Abrams can just regurgitate 75% of the scenes in Empire Strikes Back and Wars fans will have orgasms over the movie and claim its the GREATEST THING EVER and the MUST SEE MOVIE OF THE YEAR (as they claimed with Episode I (1999), II (2002), III (2005), and VII (2015) ...)

    Meanwhile Trek fans can hope for something actually original and thought-provoking. Not likely we'll get it, but without Abrams, there is A NEW HOPE for Star Trek!

  • Gingrich or Santorum as speaker? House conservatives plot mischief for the fall.

    If it makes the Draft Newt crowd feel better, the Chairman of the Cook County Board DOESN'T have to be a member of the Board (though, in practice, he usually is)

    We DID have a non-member President from 2006-2010, when John Stroger kicked bucket and they appointed his son Toddler... er, I mean Todd, to replace him as Board President. Toddler...whoops, I mean Todd again, had never been elected to diddly squat (his previous office had been an APPOINTED city alderman), so he wasn't a commissioner on the board. William Beavers was elected to fill John Stroger's old seat on the board (commissioner from the 4th district)

    In any case, since FReepers are so fond of saying things should be tried at the local and state level before being attempted nationally.. I would like to point out the "non-member chairing the meetings and running the board" thing didn't go over very well here.

    Since the Constitution doesn't state the Speaker has to be living, I'd actually much prefer Calvin Coolidge for Speaker over Newt Gingrich. Can we start a Draft Cal movement?

    >> We already have Gorsuch. <<

    Oh goody, we have a judge who says abortion and gay marriage is super duper settled law and happily joined an ultra-leftist "social justice" church with a womyn "priestness" as their "pastor" despite the fact there's a more conservative church of the same denomination a few blocks away from him.

    Man, I can just picture Antonin Scalia doing the exact same thing, can't you?

  • Star Trek: Discovery to tackle Trump-era political divide [Trump Supporters are Klingons]

    Valid point though, the new Klingons look more like the Xindi from Star Trek: Enterprise than anything remotely Klingon:

    That being said, even though both Enterprise and Discovery's attempt to be a "prequel" is laughable, I think the reason Enterprise didn't gel with TOS is because they launched it immediately after Voyager and didn't do their homework about TOS, so it felt more like a prequel to Voyager than a prequel to TOS. In the case of Enterprise, they are well aware of what the Pike era is supposed to look and feel like, but just blatantly ignore it and try to market it as "faithful to canon" and claim anyone who balks at it is just a narrow minded bigot who dislikes "diversity" on Star Trek.

    Despite the fact I have absolutely no faith in Discovery being good, I will watch the pilot on CBS and hope I'm wrong. But even if I'm wrong and it somehow turns out to be fun and engaging, there's no way I'm spending $5 a month for the "privilege" of watching it on CBS's "online only" streaming service.

    That's pretty much my biggest problem with the show... there are plenty of annoying WTF problems with the design (JJ Abrams style lens flares) and storyline (Spock's never-before-mentioned black human stepsister), but the 800 lb. gorilla in the room is the huge missed opportunity here. There's really nothing they're giving us that would make me want to watch every week to "see what happens next". Pretty much the last thing I want to see is some dour melodrama about "war with the Klingons" supposed set in the Captain Pike era.

    Why can't Discovery actually be about... y'know... DISCOVERING something?

    >> Okay, this is turdsville up to eleven. In fact, I’m wondering if the scriptwriters have even seen the original show. Isolationism? The Klingons aren’t isolationist, they’re expansionist! The whole freakin point in the old show is that they’re conquerors. If any major power in the original show has shown isolationism, it’s the Romulans, and of course they can’t be used here because they don’t make an appearance in the Kirk era until “Balance of Terror.”
    And if it’s the Federation that’s isolationist…how? To whom? The Klingons? Why the hell wouldn’t you close your borders to an enemy? I know the showrunner claims the Klingons aren’t the enemy, but that’s bunk. Spock said in Star Trek VI that there had been 70 years of unremitting hostility between the Federation and the Klingons. So yeah, there should be some hostility around the time of this show, no?
    And racial purity? When was that ever a thing with Klingons? They’re about personal honor and the glory derived from fighting in battle. They’re basically space Vikings with some Samurai mixed in. Now there’s different races of Klingon? Except for the “forehead-less” Klingons of the old show (explained later as a genetic mutation), nothing of the kind was shown or discussed.
    But again, I’m guessing these folks never watched the old show or the movies. <<

    Even worse than this idiotic reinvented Klingons idea is the show wants us to buy the idea that Sarek "adopted" a black female from earth and Spock had this human stepsister raised with him all this time that he never mentioned and we never heard about until Discovery. Naturally, the long lost stepsister is first officer of the Discovery and the "lead character" of the show.

    Defenders of STD are trying to justify it by citing Sybok from Star Trek V (yes, pointing out what is widely considered to be one of the dumbest, most cringeworthy moments in Star Trek history to use as precedent for the new show). Audiences hated the idea of retroconning Spock with a fully Vulcan "half brother" in 1989, and they STILL hate it today, and that's why "Sybok" has NEVER been mentioned again SINCE Star Trek V.

    Worse, as stupid as the concept for Sybok was, they at least had a valid explaination why Spock, Sarek, and everyone else had never mentioned Sybok once and always acted like Spock was an only child: Sybok had embraced emotion and was kicked off the Vulcan homework and ostracized by every Vulcan who ever knew him, so he was essentially dead to Sarek. I can't imagine they have a similar justification for nobody ever mentioning "Spock's human stepsister, Michael Burnham" before.

    Bizarre thing, they keep trying to market this show by saying it takes place in the prime timeline and they're "strictly following canon", while everything they show us about Discovery demonstrates the exact opposite. This show has messed with the Klingon's and Spock's family free WORSE than the Abrams "reboot" did.

    >> I’m OK with being a Klingon. Mr. Worf was my favorite character on Star Trek TNG and DS9. He was self-reliant, knew exactly who he was, and stood up for himself. <<

    The problem is, these "Klingons" on Star Trek Discovery look and act absolutely nothing like traditional Star Trek Klingons. Here's a look at the new "Klingons":

    >> Ryan and McConnell must love all these attacks on POTUS while he tries to put the heat on them. They thank you for your support. <<

    I remember a time on FR not too long ago (2012 for Ryan and pre-majority Leader era for McConell to be premise) when FR was fawning with praise for EVERYTHING they said or did.

    Now we're supposed to applaud Pelosi and Schumer getting what they want, as long as it "sticks it" to Ryan and McConnell, because they are the most eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil RINO bastards on the planet.

    The schizo nature of some "conservatives" here never ceases to amaze me. I can't keep track of it anymore. Is Mike Huckabee a great conservative hero or dirty filthy RINO scum who deserves to lose to Dems this week? How about Mark Levin. Whatever they are, we can expect that to change to the opposite position next week.

    Check out this HOT image I got off a pansexual porn site:

    Ohhh yeah look at them heat that baby and give it to her HARD.

    We can't be shamed by heteronormative people who want to deny fully consensual pan/human relationships! Can you believe that in the 21st century, you can still get kicked out of Bed, Bath & Beyond for public displays of affection with kitchen utensils?

    Just the other day, an openly pansexual person there tried to embrace his lover in public and was told by the store manage "please put down that pan and leave the counter quietly or we will have to call the police". Yes, they want to CRIMINALIZE pansexual LOVE!
