The controversy over Calvin Klein’s supermodel-robot kiss is even DUMBER than you could ever imagine

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 22:02

Calvin Klein is under fire over a new ad that features supermodel Bella Hadid kissing a robot:

— The Hill (@thehill) May 19, 2019

Here’s the ad via the robot’s Twitter account:

I am here. That is my truth. #MYTRUTH #MYCALVINS@bellahadid @CalvinKlein pic.twitter.com/gjMyHHXjHB

— Miquela (@lilmiquela) May 16, 2019

Now, let’s get to why people were offended. It wasn’t over a consent issue:

I thought people would be offended because the robot can’t consent, but no, it’s even stupider than that https://t.co/4M5BNpq8CN

— Robby Soave (@robbysoave) May 19, 2019

It’s worse. . .

Don’t give them ideas.

— Karol Markowicz (@karol) May 19, 2019

People are mad because Bella Hadid isn’t a lesbian and this is “queerbaiting”:

Calvin Klein apologizes for its ad that featured Bella Hadid kissing a robot named Miquela, which the brand said was "perceived as queerbaiting." https://t.co/FmThkhtfLG

— HuffPost (@HuffPost) May 19, 2019

“Queerbaiting” is defined as, “an exploitative tactic used to tease a queer romance to draw viewers in without any intention of fully developing or representing LGBTQ people and relationships.” Like this?

But it does appear the robot is a lesbian, so we’re really confused:

‘Never threaten the United States again!’ Trump tweet-warns Iran with what will happen if they want ‘to fight’

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 21:17

As tension and speculation increases about what will happen between Iran and the U.S., President Trump sent a warning to the nation via Twitter on Sunday afternoon.

If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 19, 2019

This is after former CIA director David Petraeus said on ABC’s “This Week” that he does not believe Trump wants to go to war with Iran but that Iran needs to be very careful in how it operates going forward.

Gen. David Petraeus, who led troops into battle during the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, says he doesn't think Trump wants to start another war in the Middle East: "It’s pretty clear that he doesn't want to go to war with Iran. He’s not after regime change" https://t.co/nJtuvt95Dm pic.twitter.com/E6L3Iw355R

— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) May 19, 2019

He says Trump is after “regime behavior change,” not “regime change.”

But Petraeus also warned Iran not to overplay their hand when dealing with an administration that has shown willingness to negotiate.

"Can [Iran] try some kind of proxy activities … They can, but they're going to be — have to be very careful not to overplay their hand," former CIA Director Gen. Petraeus tells @ABC's @MarthaRaddatz.

Embarrassing flip-flop on the crucial issue-of-the-day shows Elizabeth Warren can’t be trusted #GOTFinale

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 20:43

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is no longer backing Daenerys Targaryen for the Iron Throne after she torched the city of King’s Landing in last week’s “Game of Thrones” episode:

Just in: @ewarren un-bends the knee ahead of @GameOfThrones finale — telling me Daenerys is no longer “the best choice” for the Iron Throne.

Now, it is known. #got pic.twitter.com/oNRRl4Gxaw

— Ali Vitali (@alivitali) May 19, 2019

However, on April 19, 2019 she wrote an op-ed explaining why the Mother of Dragons and now war criminal was the best choice to lead the Seven Kingdoms:

OK so yes, I am a huge Thrones nerd. But this wasn’t out of nowhere. As Ser @AFrancoTX reminds, Warren previously wrote an op-ed praising Daenerys as her favorite. #got

— Ali Vitali (@alivitali) May 19, 2019

LOL. Look how sad Warren looks when she talks about Daenerys’ turn:

Find someone who looks at you like @AlxThomp looks at me while asking #GOT questions in a Warren gaggle. pic.twitter.com/lD8f4FdPiq

— Ali Vitali (@alivitali) May 19, 2019

Here what she said just a few short weeks ago, via The Cut:

And as much as Dany wants to take on her family’s enemies and take back the Iron Throne, she knows that she must first fight the army of the dead that threatens all mankind. This is a revolutionary idea, in Westeros or anywhere else. A queen who declares that she doesn’t serve the interests of the rich and powerful? A ruler who doesn’t want to control the political system but to break the system as it is known? It’s no wonder that the people she meets in Westeros are skeptical. Skeptical, because they’ve seen another kind of woman on the Iron Throne: the villain we love to hate, Queen Cersei of Casterly Rock.

We’ll cover who actually wins the Throne in a few hours. Stay tuned. . .

‘Concerned’ Bernie Sanders gives a chilling answer when asked about sex-selective abortions

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 20:27

Not only does Sen. Bernie Sanders support no restrictions on abortion, listen to his answer when Chuck Todd asks him about whether killing the baby on the basis of his or her gender should be outlawed.

Bernie Sanders says he’ll support ZERO legal restrictions on abortion… even sex selective abortions.pic.twitter.com/8BtnLWxw5w

— Liz Wheeler (@Liz_Wheeler) May 19, 2019

He says he’s “concerned” about sex-selective abortions but doesn’t believe there should be legal protections against them because it’s “something society has got to deal with.”

When asked, @BernieSanders says he does not support laws enacting abortion bans.

When asked about people who got abortions because they were unhappy with the sex of the fetus, Sanders said that it was something society needed to deal with. https://t.co/pA1kBVrrAv

“I wouldn’t use a restriction. That’s an issue that society has got to deal with, and it is of concern,” Sanders said.

Hugh Hewitt stands up for Pete Buttigieg, says his quote on Jefferson is being taken out of context

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 20:23

Hugh Hewitt stood up for 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Pete Buttigieg today, saying that a quote from his recent interview with the South Bend mayor on renaming Jefferson-Jackson dinners is being taken out of context. We covered it on Saturday:

Would the Jefferson Memorial get to stay? Pete Buttigieg wants events, buildings renamed https://t.co/VcxDk4JShz

— Twitchy Team (@TwitchyTeam) May 19, 2019

Here’s Hugh with what Buttigieg was getting at:

Agree Kelly. I noted to @BrianLehrer yesterday that too often bits and pieces of interviews and remarks are used to hype a headline and generate clicks. I think @PeteButtigieg would stop well short of tearing down the Jefferson Memorial. One key thing the mayor said: https://t.co/QLec6gk1tk

— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) May 19, 2019

Jefferson knew and wrote about the moral outrage of slavery in his Notes on Virginia and elsewhere. The latter generations of southerners tried to justify slavey via Calhoun but as Lincoln argued in Cooper Union Speech, the Framers from the South knew slavery was evil.

— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) May 19, 2019

As “fathers marked it, so let it be again marked, as an evil not to be extended,” declared Lincoln. The subsequent repudiation of this understanding mixed with deep hypocrisy and a lack of courage compromises the legacy of Jefferson, but what @PeteButtigieg argued is true.

— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) May 19, 2019

“Now we’re all morally conflicted human beings. And it’s not like we’re blotting him out of the history books, or deleting him from being the founder fathers. But you know, naming something after somebody confers a certain amount of honor.” https://t.co/zskjlmxObC

— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) May 19, 2019

It seems fair two write on basis of interview that @PeteButtigieg would support removing most if not all statues honoring the confederacy, and many honoring Jackson, but leave Jefferson, Madison and Washington as remembered, but accurately, as “morally conflicted human beings.”

— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) May 19, 2019

It is discouraging to see people comment on public officials —left, right and center— without giving those offficials any credit for good intentions, nuance, or simply lack of time to fully present a case. It discourages liberals from talking to conservatives and vis-versa.

— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) May 19, 2019

AOC’s America: The NYT on former New York millennials needing safe spaces in the pro-life south is ‘PEAK Twitter’

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 19:46

In the latest case of the New York Times being themselves, we have a story about millennials fleeing the oppressive economic climate of big cities, such as New York, and heading to the flyover country where the cost of living is less and government regulations are not as burdensome.

Only to find out things are different politically where they are now.

Millennials have been fleeing New York for creative hubs in the South, where housing is cheap and there are plenty of good cafes and yoga studios. Then came the new abortion laws. https://t.co/kr23CbmaD0

— NYT Metro (@NYTMetro) May 16, 2019

To learn where you are living is apparently an “awakening”:

“You really forget that you are in the Deep South here,’’ she said. The news was an awakening.

Why are millennials fleeing New York and other cities?

And why are things economically better in the states to which they are fleeing?

And so the obvious solution is to “Brooklynize” southern cities so no one will want to live there either:

Over the many decades, it has acquired various layers of nuance, but today it tends to call to mind a string of cities from Charlotte, N.C., to Austin, Tex., that have essentially been Brooklynized by way of a progressive social culture and a tweaked fidelity to some of the South’s more marketable traditions.

This thought process is not a real thing https://t.co/cIhaqYFJLN

‘Game changer’: Trey Gowdy says one transcript between George Papadopoulos and an FBI informant could be YUGE

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 18:50

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy says information contained in a communications transcript between former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos and an FBI informant could be a “game changer” if it is ever made public.

He told Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” that such a piece of information would be considered exculpatory evidence for Papadopoulos and that one transcript in particular would have the ability to persuade people.

Teasing a possible "game-changer" in the investigation surrounding the Russia probe, @TGowdySC says that the transcripts between an FBI informant and @GeorgePapa19 could shake things up. pic.twitter.com/W9x4jba6Vj

— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) May 19, 2019

He says there would have been a record of an informant, who would have been wearing a wire, and indicated that he knows the transcripts do exist.

More via Washington Examiner:

Gowdy agreed with Bartiromo’s suggestion that the FBI had concealed relevant details about Papadopoulos from the FISA court, echoing the concerns that Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, has been expressing for months.

Papadopoulos pled guilty and served jail time for lying to the FBI as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

During an interview with Laura Ingraham this past week, Papadopoulos said the FBI tried to use his wife to entrap him:

“Besides the FBI trying to have my then-girlfriend, now wife, actually wear a wire to try to entrap me herself — which was completely crazy — she was an Italian citizen visiting me as a girlfriend. And they subpoenaed her and tried to flip her against me, which was incredibly bizarre.”

This comes after the New York Times reported several weeks ago that the FBI did send a spy posing as a professor’s assistant to meet with Papadopoulos.

Amy Walter uses a restaurant analogy to describe the problem with Joe Biden’s campaign, and we’re totally here for it

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 18:10

While former vice president Joe Biden has a commanding lead in the Democrat primary polls, there are some potential issues with his candidacy and campaign that could catch up to him as the primary season unfolds.

Cook Political Report editor Amy Walter uses a restaurant analogy to describe one potential pitfall for ol’ Joe’s campaign.

After watching the Biden campaign thus far + Philly rally yesterday, my takeaway is that his candidacy is like one of those ‘casual’ nice restaurants that you go to b/c they have a big menu and everyone in your group can find something they’ll eat. (1/2)

— amy walter (@amyewalter) May 19, 2019

No one is unhappy (“look, honey they have grilled cheese for the kids and I can get a salad), but no one walks away thinking that was an amazing meal or experience. It’s not risky, but it’s also not totally satisfying either. (2/2)

— amy walter (@amyewalter) May 19, 2019

This is a good analogy, and are there really that many voters (even Democrats) who look at Joe Biden and think that we will always regret not putting that guy in the White House?

Why is he still on TV? Adam Schiff says they might try to impeach Trump without actually impeaching him

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 17:32

In the latest installment of life in Democrat world, House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-California) says they might consider impeachment proceedings against President Trump because it would be a great tool to get information.

Jay Rosen reminds us what it was like in 2016 when NPR was critical of Hillary Clinton that one time

Sat, 05/18/2019 - 19:51

As Twitchy reported, New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen announced in a tweet that he was giving up NPR after 25 years as a loyal listener. The triggering event? Someone said on air, “There are a lot of people in the United States who don’t see Donald Trump is a habitual liar and who are big fans of his.” Judging by the popularity of his rallies, we’d say that’s true, a lot of people are big fans of Trump.

That might have been the last straw from Rosen, but he had evidence of NPR’s decay; just look at how Mara Liansson summed up the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016:

Why is it the job of the press to help shape election outcomes? If you just present facts to the American people objectively and allow them to decide you wouldn't be so stressed about the narrative you are putting out. It's quite arrogant to even think this is part of your job.

Hillary Clinton created her own problems. Comey did answer this before the election when he said the new emails did not change anything. The media lifted her up as the presumptive president while giving Trump mostly negative coverage. The media has a duty to be neutral.

For almost thirty years, RW media have been complaining, legitimately, about media bias, while the press pretended as if they were playing it straight. Trump was the first R presidential candidate to directly confront this and it's a huge part of his support.

— Mo Mo (@molratty) May 18, 2019

Y'all could be better. You could do your jobs and do your best to remove bias. You could be sane. You don't have to take the bait. Instead, you act like it's your job to get someone elected.

— Mo Mo (@molratty) May 18, 2019

Here's a truth: almost no journalist has sufficient knowledge or insight on policy, political theory, or anything about how the world works to offer any value beyond "this is what happened." Stop pretending you do.

— Mo Mo (@molratty) May 18, 2019

Many of them can’t even tell correctly what happened, either. I’ve noticed this after reading abortion-related legislation for 6 states & seeing the media report on text that’s not even in any of the bills.

Nancy Pelosi claims Dems have never said there is not a crisis at the border (ROLL TAPE!)

Sat, 05/18/2019 - 17:36

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has addressed a question about Trump saying America has a border crisis this way:

Nancy Pelosi Claims Democrats Have Always Acknowledged The Border Crisis https://t.co/yRqtcxIGbn

— The Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) May 17, 2019

Here’s what Pelosi said this week:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested that Democrats have “never not” called the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border a crisis, despite them repeatedly denying there was a crisis earlier this year.

“Well, let me just say this. We have never not said that there was a crisis — there is a humanitarian crisis at the border, and some of it provoked by the actions taken by the administration,” Pelosi, a California Democratic representative, said Thursday during her weekly press conference.

It depends on what your definition of “never” is:

Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi stated that Democrats NEVER SAID THERE WASN'T A CRISIS at the border…

What’s the excuse for this one? Another governor is about to sign pro-life legislation, and he’s a DEMOCRAT

Sat, 05/18/2019 - 00:37

Over the past few weeks, Democrats have been insisting that it’s a bunch of right-wing extremists in Georgia, Alabama, Missouri and other states who have been pushing and have passed pro-life legislation.

They might want to check out what is about to happen in Louisiana, where Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards is preparing to sign a pro-life law.

Democratic Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards has repeatedly bucked national party leaders on abortion rights and is about to do it again. https://t.co/DKRAxWpKUH

— AP South U.S. Region (@APSouthRegion) May 17, 2019

And to the progressives who claim he just doing this for reelection purposes:

Nearly three decades ago, when Democratic Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ wife was 20 weeks pregnant with their first child, a doctor discovered their daughter had spina bifida and encouraged an abortion. The Edwardses refused.

Now, daughter Samantha is married and working as a school counselor, and Edwards finds himself an outlier in polarized abortion politics.

“My position hasn’t changed. In eight years in the Legislature, I was a pro-life legislator,” he said. When he ran for governor, his view was the same. “I’m as consistent as I can be on that point.”

To add to the destruction he is doing to his party’s talking points, Edwards says he is far from the only pro-life Democrat in the state.

Edwards on his opposition to abortion: “I know that for many in the national party, on the national scene, that’s not a good fit. But I will tell you, here in Louisiana, I speak and meet with Democrats who are pro-life every single day.” #lalege #lagov https://t.co/8VVDNd1m8j

— Melinda Deslatte (@MelindaDeslatte) May 17, 2019

The Louisiana law prohibits abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected.

NOPE, try again: Kamala Harris shows how clueless Dems are about why pro-life laws are being passed

Fri, 05/17/2019 - 23:56

After several states passed pro-life laws this week, Democrats are desperately stabbing around trying to find out why this is happening.

California Sen. and presidential candidate Kamala Harris thinks she’s got it.

Let’s elect more women. https://t.co/pNOqNXaaLT

— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) May 17, 2019

This is the ABC News chart she referenced showing the ratio of male to female lawmakers in Alabama.

States passing abortion bans have among the lowest rates of women in power. https://t.co/CCH70ZpbTa pic.twitter.com/wR4ZksNUDw

— ABC News (@ABC) May 16, 2019

Which leaves out an important detail.

You understand that a woman signed the Alabama law, right? I think you meant to say “elect more progressives”. And you’re not in that bunch. https://t.co/O1Oomd1rqB

— BehaviorTrap (@BehaviorTrap) May 17, 2019

Guess the governor of Alabama, Kay Ivey, doesn’t count.

Like the Governor of Alabama? Lets elect more…smart…women. By the way Kamala…stay away from Joe Biden… https://t.co/Niwy877H8h

— David Page (@PageDavid) May 17, 2019

But that’s not all.

According to Census.gov statistics, there are more women in Alabama (51.6 percent) than men.

Breaking it down further, there is an even higher percentage of women than men among those 16 and older (52.4 percent).

So maybe, just maybe, it’s that voters in Alabama and the other states that have passed similar legislation actually want pro-life laws in their states.

Just a thought for Sen. Harris to ponder while she’s tweet-testing various positions for 2020.

B. The “majority”?

Pro-Life Nation: New Poll Shows Heavy Majorities in Favor of Substantial Abortion Restrictions https://t.co/W3psBi4QK8 pic.twitter.com/Kr97ZmuqeG

— The Daily Signal (@DailySignal) January 18, 2018

A lopsided majority — 76 percent — believe that legal abortion should be limited to the first trimester, permitted only in very rare circumstances (rape, incest, or to save the mother’s life), or barred entirely.  Support for these pro-life reforms includes 61 percent of Democrats and 78 percent of independents.  And even if you excise the ‘first trimester’ option, fully 50 percent of Americans believe abortion should only be legally allowed in a handful of narrow circumstances, or not at all.

C. The irony of “they’re coming for Roe.”

Interesting to read "They're coming for Roe." when the original "Roe," Norma McCorvey, ended up pro-life. https://t.co/rDUlAmU9Fv

‘It’s a hall of mirrors’: Chuck Ross’ thread of State Dept. notes on Christopher Steele’s meeting is a MUST READ

Fri, 05/17/2019 - 19:45

We won’t pretend to understand a single thing that has been going on behind the scenes where the Steele dossier is concerned but thankfully Chuck Ross does get it and was good enough to write an entire thread on what we need to know about Christopher Steele and much more.

This is lengthy but worth the read.

State Dept notes of Christopher Steele meeting are the 1st gov't documents to identify some of Steele's dossier sources. A thread: https://t.co/bKdqurpyoi

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

Ex-Russian intel official has links to Stefan Halper.

No big deal.

Eep.

Steele told Kathleen Kavalec on Oct. 11, 2016 that Vyacheslav TRUBNIKOV (ex-SVR chief) and Vladislav SURKOV (top Putin adviser) were "involved" in the Trump kompromat situation. Kavalec also wrote "sources" next to their names.

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

‘Involved.’

Steele's June 20, 2016 memo has the claim about the Trump kompromat. "Source B" is described as "a former top level Russian intelligence officer still active inside the Kremlin." *Could* be Trubnikov.

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

As former CIA station chief @danielhoffmanDC, this is all very tricky. "It's a hall of mirrors."

If Trubnikov/Surkov are sources, question is, were they witting or unwitting. And if the pee tape claim is false, what were Trubnikov/Surkov's motives in discussing false claims?

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

Hoffman and a few other people who know about these things have claimed the dossier is Russian disinformation. Bill Barr testified he is "concerned" by that possibility.

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

Disinformation.

Filled with mistakes.

Very strange.

Yup.

Trubnikov also has links to Stefan Halper. Halper tapped Trubnikov to contribute to a 2015 Pentagon study on China-Russia issues. Halper was a contractor for Pentagon's Office of Net Assessment. He used the offer to write policy papers to get close to Papadopoulos

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

Halper also hosted and arranged for Trubnikov to speak at the Cambridge Intelligence Seminar in 2012 and 2015. Trubnikov had visa problems prior to the 2015 visit, but those got cleared up.

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

Cleared up. Huh.

Halper's role in hosting Trubnikov is significant for a couple of reasons. Halper resigned from Cambridge Intelligence Seminar in Dec. 2016 over what he claimed was undue Russian influence. He reportedly was concerned that Russian operatives were given too much a platform.

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

Whoa.

But that doesn't gel with Halper giving Trubnikov, an extremely high-level Russian intel operative, a perch at Cambridge.

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

Then there is Halper's reported concern about Michael Flynn's visit to the seminar in 2014. Halper reportedly raised a red flag about Flynn's interactions with Russian-British academic Svetlana Lokhova.

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

Except there's literally zero evidence to suggest anything improper occurred between Flynn and Lokhova. But how could Halper be concerned about them but not Trubnikov?

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

Inquiring minds wanna know.

Fast forward to January 2016, and Halper's Cambridge associate, Christopher Andrew, invites Lokhova to a small dinner at Halper's home. If Halper thought Lokhova was some sort of Russian agent, why the invitation to his home? Months later, he was informing on the Trump campaign.

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) May 17, 2019

They never thought they’d lose so they never thought they’d get caught.
