    Trump and Kim Jong Un redefine ‘Bad Hair Day’

    Experts agree that Adolf Hitler, Jedward and the baddie from ‘No Country for Old Men’ all had evil hairstyles, but which came first – the bad hair or the bad man? Does evil hair drive the person beneath it to perform evil deeds, possibly by whispering, or do wicked people do something weird with their combs?

    It’s like the nature / nurture thing, but with hair.

    Psychologists have analysed the hairstyles of Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, and graded both hairstyles as ‘Category 5 – Keep Away’. For comparison, Hitler’s hair was only Category 4, though his moustache brought the grade up.

    “When President Trump said that the USA could ‘deal with’ North Korea on its own, that was just the hair talking”, said a top psychologist. “We see this a lot in forensic psychiatric facilities. On a bad hair day we get a lot of fights. There’s even a Biblical precedent – Samson didn’t lose his strength when they cut his hair, he lost his psychosis.

    “Trump’s hair is definitely diagnostic. He’s a billionaire in a country with excellent cosmetic facilities, yet he still looks like a man who’s been accidentally resurrected after a short-sighted undertaker has done his worst.

    “We need to fix this guy’s hair, and fast, or it could wipe out civilisation as we know it. Never mind assassination, we need a drive-by makeover”.

  2. xr, also throw in a permanent ports (sea and air) promise in Syria to spice up this carrot dish you posted last thread:

    our Syria policy’ cannot get putin on board unless there is an unstated (and YUUUUJ !) carrot attached. So, what is the carrot ? East Ukraine and Lithuania ? Georgia ? All of Ukraine ?

  3. right on, keith!

  4. meanwhile back in the homeland, carl Hiaasen: New ‘Stand Your Ground’ rules offer creative opportunities for defendants

    Gun-toting criminals and their defense lawyers will soon have much to celebrate, thanks to the Florida Legislature and the National Rifle Association.

    The state’s “Stand Your Ground” law is being rewritten in a way that will make it easier to shoot somebody and beat the rap. Gang members might as well pop the champagne cork now, because it’s practically a done deal in Tallahassee.

    At the direction of the NRA, Republican lawmakers are changing the procedure in Stand Your Ground hearings so that defendants no longer will have to show a judge they acted in self-defense.

    The burden will shifted to prosecutors, who’ll be forced to show the shooter did not feel his life was in danger when he pulled the trigger.

    [….]

    Once lawmakers approve the final draft of the new Stand Your Grand law, Gov. Rick Scott is likely to sign it, giving comedians yet another free punch line about gun-crazy Florida.

    It’s only funny if you don’t live here.

  5. this morning  realclearpolitics:

    Joe Scarborough said Tuesday morning according to sources the end of near for Trump senior adviser Steve Bannon and that he has “snapped.” Mika Brzezinski also agreed with this assessment, and said: “the end is nigh.”

    However, New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters, contradicting the Morning Joe hosts, said there seems to be a detente between Bannon and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.

    “What White House insiders cannot come to grips with, and I talked to three of the president’s top people yesterday. They do not understand what happened to Steve Bannon, why he decided to start attacking the president’s family, and the word I heard from all three was he just snapped, and that’s causing concern from the president down, that somebody would be so unbalanced, that somebody would be this undisciplined, that they would just snap and start attacking the president’s family family,” Scarborough said in the previous hour.

  6. I believe nothing Joe S says until I see the proof.  His opinions are occasionally correct, but they are also often dead wrong.  He still believes Reagan rose again onthe third day.

    Great riffs’ Poobah.  Those all yours or did you craftily purloin them from the web?

  7. Definition of insanity: Sailing a carrier battle group into near-Korean waters as a show of force.

  8. By Hong Soon-do, Beijing correspondent, AsiaToday –   huffpo:

    The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is on the alert as the situation on the Korean peninsula is showing signs of unforeseeable tension. As a result, 150,000 soldiers have gathered on the North Korean border near the Yalu and Tumen rivers since April 7. In addition, China has seemingly conducted secret training for the flood of North Korean refugees, which are likely to occur in case of emergency.

    This assertion is not an exaggeration considering the characteristics of 150,000 soldiers on the border. According to Beijing sources familiar with Chinese military information, most of them are 39th and 40th Army Groups, which are formed in the Northern Military District to guard against an unexpected situation of the Korea peninsula. The 39th Army Group is a heavy mechanized unit and the 40th is the rapid deployment force. Both of them boast the country’s best combat power and firepower. This means that China is taking the situation quite seriously.

    The situation is quite serious considering the fact that the brains of the PLA ordered the entire Northern District to fully prepare for combat. Obviously, follow-up measures are being taken. First, they deployed a new Kongjing-500 early warning aircraft to the border to intensify aerial surveillance. In addition, Dongfeng-31A missiles, 12 Dongfeng-03 ballistic missiles with a range of 2,800km, and 24 Dongfeng-21 “Carrier-killer” missiles are recently deployed at the 51st Base under Rocket Unit stationed in Shenyang of Liaoning province. Aiming at North Korea, United States Forces Korea and Japan, the missiles are reportedly ready to be fired. Mr. Dou, who retired as an instructor-level officer of the Rocket Unit, said, “The brains of the PLA were surprised by the United States’ sudden Syria missile strike. They cannot help but think the U.S. could exercise armed force against North Korea in the future. They realized U.S. threat to North Korea looking at the implementation of US-Korea military drills such as Key Resolve exercise and the reality of half of US Pacific carriers heading towards Korean Peninsula. It would be rather strange not to respond.”

  11. ny times:  White House Accuses Russia of Cover-Up in Syria Chemical Attack

    WASHINGTON — The White House on Tuesday accused the Russian government of engaging in a cover-up of the chemical weapons attack last week by Syrian forces that prompted American airstrikes, saying that United States intelligence and numerous contemporaneous reports confirmed that the Syrians used sarin gas on their own people.

    In a declassified four-page report that details United States intelligence on the chemical weapons attack, the White House asserted that the Syrian and Russian governments have sought to confuse the world community about the assault through disinformation and “false narratives.”
    Senior White House officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the government’s view, said Russia’s goal was to cover up Syrian regime culpability.
    The officials said they could not comment on the possibility that the Russian government knew in advance of Syria’s plan to carry out the chemical weapons attack, or of a subsequent attack on a hospital that was treating victims.
    But one official said that, given the history of close cooperation between the Syrian and Russian militaries, Moscow must answer for the attacks. Pentagon officials have said that Russian personnel were at the Syrian base used to launch the chemical weapons attack.

  12. Thanks, again, by the way, to everyone who made this nightmare possible!  Totally worth it.

  13. cnn money:

    Russia is on the verge of taking control of a US oil company.

    In a crazy twist of international events, Russia’s state-owned oil company Rosneft might end up owning Citgo, a US energy company based in Houston, Texas.

    “We are extremely concerned that Rosneft’s control of a major US energy supplier could pose a grave threat to American energy security, impact the flow and price of gasoline for American consumers, and expose critical US infrastructure to national security threats,” a bipartisan group of senators led by Republican Marco Rubio of Florida and Democrat Bob Menendez of New Jersey wrote Monday in a letter to US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

    All of this comes as tension is high between US and Russia over the conflict in Syria, cyber crime and Russia meddling in US elections, among other disputes. Rosneft is also currently on the US sanctions list for “violating international law and fueling conflict in Ukraine.”

     

    fyi and prolly just a coincidinky but as 8th commentor ziggy at demunderground pointed out re rosneft:

    According to allegations in the Steele Dossier, former Trump adviser Carter Page allegedly acted as the go-between between Trump and the Vladimir Putin run oil company, meeting with Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin, who proposed arranging a transfer of the shares to Trump in exchange for removing the United States economic sanctions, which were put in place under former President Barack Obama as retaliation for Putin and Russia’s annexation of Crimea and proxy war against Ukraine.
    In an interview with ABC News, Page denied earlier this month that the alleged meeting with Sechin took place, and that he took part in negotiating any quid pro quo between Russia and Trump.

    so one more tidbit in the dossier rings true.  not long before those pissy sheets turn up.

  14. Spicer says Hitler didn’t use gas “in the same way” as Assad. Sure, systematically murdering 6  million  so low key. Happy Passover.

  15. boss, the hill quotes spliecer at first saying it a bit differently:

    White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday erred in claiming that former Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons during World War II.

    “You had someone as despicable as Hitler, who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer said during Wednesday’s press briefing.

    Hitler is known to have used Cyanide gas in mass murders of Jews.

    Spicer was using the Hitler comparison to make a point about how dastardly Syrian president Bashar Assad acted last weekend when he attacked his own people with Sarin gas, which provoked President Trump to strike a Syrian air field.

    “If you are Russia, ask yourself, is this a country and regime that you want to align yourself with?” he asked.

    Later in the briefing, Spicer walked back his remarks when a reporter challenged him to explain, saying Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons “in the same way” as Assad.

    “When it comes to Sarin gas, [Hitler] was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing,” Spicer said.

    “I understand your point. Thank you. I appreciate that. He brought them into the Holocaust centers, I understand that. I was saying in the way that Assad used them where he went into town, dropped them into the middle of town. I appreciate the clarification. That was not the intent.”

    spicie badly and bigly needs another job.

  16. scanning headlines of the alternate universe internet (am reluctant to link any and taint the trail)  they’re pushing a story that putin says u.s. is about to bomb Damascus and blame it on poor misunderstood basshar.   do I smell a cleverly devious putie plan here?

  17. Clarification re wartime use of chemical weapons; a parallel issue to the use of chemistry in the Holocaust in the Nazis’ search for the most mechanically perfect way to murder human beings by the tens of thousands each day. Where firing squads were simply too slow and ammunition too expensive. Understand this. I trivialize nothing; I supported the establishment of the Tamps Bay Holocaust Museum. I uttered that support in public hearings, on radio and teevee, and in print interviews.

    In an effort to prevent the horrendous casualties resulting from chlorine, phosgene and mustard gas use during WW-I, the allies, including the United States, produced massive amounts of chemical agents during the period 1930 thru 1970. As the state of the art shifted, so did our production. But our doctrine did not.

    In the 1930s, we pledged never to use chemical weapons of mass destruction (WMD) except in response to others’ first use. Napalm, tear gas, riot gas and other agents of that nature were not categorized as WMD. We even adopted a subterfuge where we took many chemical shells and encircled them with three painted bands. These bands were intended to have adversaries believe that we had agents more hazardous and persistent than those shells with one and two painted bands that had been used in past combats. We didn’t.

    In any case, neither we nor our adversaries made combat use of lethal chemical agents in WW-II or during the Cold War.

    I might point out, our chemical weapons have been destroyed. Should someone make battlefield use of chemical agents against us, I would not be surprised to see us respond with the WMD that we still possess–tactical nuclear weapons.

  18. Of the many idiotic statements made by the drumpf mouth piece, one stands out to me that says he is one of the drumpf anti-Semitic cult members, “Holocaust Centers”.  That he would think that concentration camps did not exist tells me that he and his ilk are so far out of this world they need to be set down and made to watch the liberation films of those death camps for the rest of their lives.

  19. BB, it’s SpLIEcer.  Based on his pathetic performance so far, don’t expect anything more that drivel from him.

  20. CNN feed tells me SpLIEcer apologized for the Hitler comparison – said it was wrong to do that.  Really, ya think?

  21. Bill Olielly is going on vacation…he says it was planned a long time ago

  22. and on another from the bunker this a.m. in wapo: “Trump just made some very strange comments about Stephen K. Bannon”

    Goodwin says he asked Trump if he still has confidence in Bannon, who is reportedly feuding with Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner. And Trump didn’t exactly disabuse Goodwin of the idea that Bannon is embattled. In fact, he did quite the opposite.

    “I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late,” Trump said. “I had already beaten all the senators and all the governors, and I didn’t know Steve. I’m my own strategist, and it wasn’t like I was going to change strategies because I was facing crooked Hillary.”

    Ouch. Bannon joined the campaign in August for the lion’s share of the general election, taking on the role of campaign CEO. He and Kellyanne Conway, the campaign manager, were the titular heads of the campaign. Trump then kept Bannon on as his chief political adviser in the White House, serving alongside chief of staff Reince Priebus.

    In his comments to Goodwin, Trump also nodded to the tensions that exist in the White House and appeared to place the onus on Bannon to make things right — or else.

    “Steve is a good guy, but I told them to straighten it out or I will,” Trump said.
