The Big-Clit Caption Contest

 

This is the 200th world-famous FOTM Caption Contest!

Here’s the pic:

Language Warning!

About the pic: Taken at a women’s march for something. Researching “big clit energy” on the web, I learned that the Urban Dictionary defines it as a woman who’s “confident, carefree and independent”. This blog says “big clit energy” is feminists’ riposte to “big dick energy”:

Big Clit Energy (BCE) is the self-possessed swagger and confidence of a woman who doesn’t care what anyone (but especially men) thinks of her. She is assertive, bold, and unafraid to speak her mind. A woman with BCE is empowered by the complete lack of fucks she gives…. BCE is leaving the house without a bra on and eating a burrito with your bare hands.

You know the drill:

Months before resigning as defense secretary, James Mattis plotted to challenge President Trump in 2020 GOP primary

 

James Mattis, 68, former U.S. Marine Corps general who was widely revered by rank-and-file Marines for his blunt talk and leadership, was recruited by President Trump into his administration as Secretary of Defense, to the roaring approval of conservatives and patriots.

See “Obama regime purges 5th senior military officer: Cmdr of CENTCOM James Mattis

Mattis was defense secretary for only two years, from January 20, 2017 to December 31, 2018.

According to Wikipedia, on December 20, 2018, a day after Trump’s announcement of an immediate U.S. withdrawal from Syria over the objections of his national security advisers, Mattis submitted his resignation after failing to persuade Trump to reconsider. Mattis had recently said that the U.S. would remain in Syria following the defeat of ISIL to ensure they did not regroup.

Mattis’ resignation letter contained language that appeared to criticize Trump’s worldview, such as praising NATO which Trump has often derided. In his letter, Mattis wrote that Trump has “the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with [his] on these and other subjects” and that his resignation would be effective February 28, 2019. Three days later, angered by Mattis’ implicit criticism of Trump’s worldview, Trump moved Mattis’ departure date up to January 1. A day after Mattis’ departure, on January 2, 2019, Trump criticized Mattis’ performance as Secretary of Defense and said he had “essentially fired him.”

Now we know the real reason why Mattis resigned or was fired: At least seven months before he resigned, Mattis had put together a plan to challenge Trump in the 2020 Republican primary elections.

This stunning news is from Big League Politics, whose sources are:

  1. Travis Snyder, 25, an Indiana-based political consultant who was the point man for a team working to launch a Mattis Republican primary campaign against President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Insiders say Snyder is close to Vice President Mike Pence.
  2. Alex Rountree, a conservative consultant whom Snyder tried to recruit for the Mattis team.

As recounted by Patrick Howley for Big League Politics, May 22, 2019, then Defense Secretary “James Mattis and some White House employees were directly aware of and monitoring a team working to launch a Mattis Republican primary campaign against President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, according to documents obtained by Big League Politics and statements from the organizers who put the team together.”

In a series of interview, Travis Snyder told Big League Politics: “My job was to see what his [Mattis’] pathway to the White House would look like. There was a very small team. I oversaw early states polling, putting together possible running mates. I did not work with the fundraising team. I solely looked at what his path to the nomination would look like, and then his pathway to the White House. General Mattis was aware of the effort. He knew of the team, who exactly brought the team together. There are people who currently serve in the White House who knew that the team was coming together. This group is no longer active.”

Snyder kicked off his Mattis whisper campaign by planting an article with Andrew Feinberg, who wrote an August 2018 piece for Beltway Breakfast headlined, “Defense Secretary Mattis Weighing 2020 Bid, Predicts He’d ‘Kick Trump’s Ass’“.

August 2018 was four months before Mattis submitted his resignation.

Mattis’ running mate prospects included Nikki Haley, the Trump administration’s U.S. ambassador to the UN (2017-2018), and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas).

Snyder said Nikki Haley and Dan Creshaw were polled as a VP nominee in the event that Mattis ran. Also Jackie Walorski, Mitch Daniels, and regional smaller named people like Staff Sergeant Johnny Joe Jones. Snyder said his team also polled Vice President Mike Pence’s chances to run against Trump, but found that Pence had no chance.

Snyder declined to name the donors to the effort or the main person organizing it.

Snyder approached conservative consultant Alex Rountree about being part of the team, but Rountree told Big League Politics he wanted nothing to do with it. Rountree had signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement with Snyder, but the agreement is now expired.

Rountree says he never had any intention of helping Snyder, only in exposing the establishment plot to betray President Trump. Rountree identifies Snyder as being “good family friends with Pence” and also an adviser to Jackie Walorski, the congresswoman in Pence’s old district. According to Rountree, Snyder made it appear that Pence was supportive of the primary challenge to Trump. Rountree told Big League Politics:

“He [Snyder] was fluffing around a little bit about Pence, saying, ‘Pence wouldn’t be upset if Mattis ran.’ Somebody who knew the President’s every move all the time was working with Mattis: that turned out to be (John) Kelly. They were hoping for Nikki Haley on the ticket. [Snyder was trying to put together] 15 consultants or operatives in 15 different states. He said he had a polling firm that just signed an NDA that worked for the [Ted] Cruz campaign.”

Ted Cruz’s pollster during the 2016 election was The Polling Company, the president and CEO of which was KellyAnne Conway, who resigned from the company on January 20, 2017 to become Counselor to President Trump. Snyder did not deny Conway’s possible involvement in the Mattis team.

Snyder told Rountree that the Mattis team had representatives in Arizona, Michigan, Virginia and Florida.

Below are screenshots of handwritten notes that Rountree took of his conversations with Snyder on May 16 and 17, 2018, seven months before James Mattis submitted his letter of resignation:

Feminist says traditional family must be abolished because it’s a tool of capitalism

 

The Left have always been hostile to the traditional family, beginning with Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, which regards the family as where women are little more than “instruments of production” for men, and where patriarchy and capitalism worked in tandem to produce alienated workers.

The Left’s antipathy to the traditional family is fully displayed in feminist theorist Sophie Lewis‘ new book, Full Surrogacy Now: Feminism Against Family (Verso, 2019), wherein Lewis outright calls for the abolition of the family.

Central to Lewis’ thesis are pregnancy (“gestation”), mothers (“gestators”) and babies (“neonates”). For Lewis, motherhood is a form of exploited and unremunerated labor (or work) that enables that most exploitative of all economic systems — capitalism. In Lewis’ words, pregnancy and motherhood are capitalist devices for “propping up the propertarian, biogenetic, nuclear private household that is our main kinship model.”

In an interview with Rosemarie Ho of The Nation, which Wikipedia calls “the most widely read weekly journal” of progressives, i.e., the Left, Lewis said:

It’s a central idea to feminism anyway, that mothers aren’t natural entities; they’re making choices to look after this other person. It’s not some sort of mechanical, automatic process…. That’s why it’s so valuable to denaturalize the mother-child bond. To do anything otherwise is to devalue that work. That’s the horizon that I think opens up the space for a revolutionary politics….

I want to challenge, the idea that babies belong to anyone—the idea that the product of gestational labor gets transferred as property to a set of people. That is actually one of the revolutionary horizons that the Sisterhood of Black Single Mothers advocated for: how children should belong to no one but themselves….

[W]hen we say we want to abolish the family…there’s the whole question of what it is for: training us up to be workers, training us to be inhabitants of a binary-gendered and racially stratified system, training us not to be queer….

Sometimes you need the poets to help you articulate something concretely. You need Sylvia Plath describing the process of giving birth as a “black force blotting out [her] brain and utterly possessing [her]”; you need Elena Ferrante describing motherhood as being “a cud made of a living material that continually amalgamated and softened its living substance to allow two greedy bloodsuckers to nourish themselves.”

[…] it would be useful to implement a sense that it is normal for us to think about babies as made by many people. I would support policies that expand the number of people who are socially and legally recognized as central, fundamental players in the constitution of a person….

Lewis is too much even for The Nation‘s “progressive” readers, as indicated by some of their comments:

Alexis Treeby: “This interview is horrible. There may be merit to Ms. Lewis’ ideas. I say may, because I have no real idea what they are. It isn’t a sin against Marxism or feminism to speak in clear English instead of jargon, particularly in a general interest political magazine such as The Nation.”

Elizabeth Vincent: “Of course there are women who don’t want to be mothers, but why is that a problem to be solved by having all babies born to paid women of color in other countries? Why can’t women who don’t want to be mothers just not be mothers, and leave mothering to people who do want to be mothers? I feel like there is an unfortunate tendency for intellectuals to over-complicate issues in a way that scares people away from the left. I am a mother myself, and although it was difficult bringing up children, to me it was completely worth it.”

Muhammad Thompson: “I’m so sick of this pseudo-scientific crap, these social analyses pulled so easily from the ass of the Neo-Marxist. Pretentious fabrications like “heteronormativity.” This is why I pull away from socialism. Marx and Engels have nothing to offer our age”

Francis Louis Szot: “If I hadn’t read this article, if I heard some Ozark snake-kissing, old-testament-based champion of genocide claiming that the left wing of the Democrat Party was in favor of “abolishing the family”, I’d have been able to chalk-it-up to faulty attribution, or malignant, purposefully deceptive translation of some weird, offhand remark by an isolated, grumpy individual.

Now, I’ll have to admit that the dolt CAN claim that he saw that prescription inside one of the most prominent publications on the Left Side of the USA political spectrum, and thereby semi-legitimately extend the silliness beyond the immediate coven members who penned it.

Thanks to The Nation, such an asinine assertion can be repeated by the religious right with validity.

If there was any possibility that the claimed cause & effect had the slightest chance of actually happening, or actually being true, I might be persuaded to give it a little slack, but this stuff is 100% nonsense, IMHO.”

Sophie Lewis explains why feminists are so hell-bent on killing their young, in utero and post-birth.

TV reality star had two abortions to “end her family’s cycle of poverty”

 

From Daily Mail: Married at First Sight star Jamie Otis has opened up about having two abortions, stressing that while no one wants to have one, it is a ‘necessary option’ for women.

The 32-year-old nurse joined a number of celebrities in sharing her abortion story after Alabama passed a bill last week imposing a near-total ban on the procedure, including those for victims of rape or incest.

‘I just cannot continue to sit in silence while women’s fundamental human rights are being taken away. I am speaking up for HER,’ the reality star wrote on Instagram.

‘I had an abortion. Twice. Is it something I’m proud of? Heck no! No one *wants* an abortion,’ continued. ‘It has left the most painful hole in my heart. But do I think women should be stripped of their right to choose? Absolutely not.’

Jamie, who has a one-year-old daughter named Henley with her husband Doug Hehner, said she kept quiet about her abortions after receiving backlash when she first wrote about her experience in her book, Wifey 101.

In an essay for People, she explained that she grew up in extreme poverty with a drug-addicted mother who couldn’t provide for her five children.

Jamie said her mom ‘dropped out of high school’ and had a string of abusive boyfriends. She had no idea who her father was and her mother couldn’t afford to take care of her and her siblings. She would wake up without electricity or food half of the time.

‘We lived in a trailer that had leaky ceilings with doors that wouldn’t shut all the way and windows that were duct-taped,’ she recalled. ‘But the hardest part was that my mom was gone. She left us for weeks at a time and we were just teenagers and kids fending for ourselves.’

When she was 18, Jamie got pregnant by the first guy she had ever had sex with. She actually found out she was pregnant when she went to a clinic to get birth control.

The nurse told her abortion was an option, but she initially brushed it off because in her family ‘you don’t have abortions under any circumstances.’

However, she knew that her boyfriend wouldn’t be a good father, and she didn’t want to drop out of school and have a baby with an abusive man like her mother and older sister did. She didn’t want to be stuck in the same cycle of poverty.

‘I chose to have an abortion. I wouldn’t have been able to provide this child the kind of life he or she deserved,’ she wrote. ‘And I wanted to finish college and provide for my siblings and give us a better life. I didn’t see how that would be possible while also taking care of a baby.’

Jamie said she had a second abortion when she got pregnant in nursing school. ‘I don’t even want to admit that it happened twice, but here I am sharing my story so other women can feel that they aren’t alone,’ she explained.

‘My abortions were a secret I kept to myself for nearly my whole life. I hated myself for a very long time for it, and I know the stones people will throw at me: Why didn’t I use birth control better? Why wasn’t I more careful? But the thing is, it happened to me and continues to happen to couples.

‘You can throw stones at me if you want, but I just think of a young woman who has no one to turn to. I wish someone had said to me back then that I’m not evil. I felt like a terrible, selfish human being and sometimes I still do.’

The mother-of-one said she often reminds herself that she wouldn’t have her daughter Henley if she had ‘two children with two men who were not fit to be fathers.’

Read the whole story here.

Read the story here that People Magazine is promoting about 24 celebrities who had abortions and wanted to share their stories to “end the stigma.”

Here’s some reasons why these celebrities had abortions:

I was worried about my career responsibilities and afraid that I could not exist as both a career woman and mother.”

“I had an abortion. I just simply wasn’t in a place, financially or emotionally to take that on.

“My mental health couldn’t handle being pregnant again & I made the best decision for ME & ultimately my family.”

“When I was younger I had an abortion. It was the smartest decision I could’ve made, not only for myself & my boyfriend at the time. Having a baby at that time would have only perpetuated the cycle of poverty, chaos and dysfunction I was born into.

“I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Both for me, and for the baby I didn’t want, and wasn’t ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially.”

‘I didn’t have anything to offer a child.”

It would have been absolute career death for me to have done that … it would have been unthinkable to have a child.” (From Joan Collins, who got pregnant with Warren Beatty.)

2014 Quinnipiac poll: Obama worst president since WW2

 

How come this didn’t make the national news in 2014?

The Quinnipiac Poll is a major pollster, based at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut. Called a “gold standard” pollster, the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute employs about 300 interviewers, with a full-time staff of ten, and does not accept clients or outside funding.

According to a Quinnipiac press release, on July 2, 2014, a Quinnipiac University National Poll found Barack Obama to be the worst and Ronald Reagan to be the best U.S. president since WWII.

From June 24 – 30, 2014, 1,446 registered voters nationwide were surveyed  by live interviewers on land lines and cell phones. The survey had a margin of error of +/- 2.6 percentage points.

Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said: “Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel. Would Mitt [Romney] have been a better fit? More voters in hindsight say yes.”

Here are the poll’s findings:

  • 33% of American voters said Obama was the worst president since WWII; 28% said George W. Bush was the worst president.
  • 35% said Ronald Reagan was the best president since WWII; 18% picked Bill Clinton; 15% for John F. Kennedy. Only 8% thought Obama to be the best president.
  • Partisan differences:
    • 78% of Democrats said Bush was worst president; 4% picked Obama.
    • 79% of Republicans said Obama was worst president; 7% picked Bush.
    • 41% of Independent voters said Obama was worst president; 31% picked Bush.
  • Gender differences:
    • 43% of men said Obama was worst president; 36% picked Bush.
    • 42% of women said Bush was worst president; 38% picked Obama.
  • 45% of voters said America would be better off if Republican Mitt Romney had won the 2012 presidential election; 38% said the country would be worse off.
  • 54% of voters said the Obama Administration was not competent running the government; 48% said Obama did not pay enough attention to what his administration was doing.
  • 48% of voters said Obama was honest and trustworthy; 51% said he cared about their needs and problems.

Needles, feces & drugs, oh my! SF Board of Supervisors rewarded with 12% raise

 

The “professionals” on the SF Board of Supervisors

Imagine being so handsomely rewarded for turning your once beautiful city into a sh*thole. It pays well to be a public servant…

From SF Gate: San Francisco’s supervisors will be getting a 12% raise this year, more than three times the size of those being given to other elected officials and city employees.

The raise was approved by a 3-1 vote of the Civil Service Commission on Monday and represents a $15,016 pay hike, bringing the board members’ salaries to $140,148 this year — plus benefits.

“I felt the boost was appropriate to bring the pay more in line with the responsibilities of the job,” said Commission President F.X. Crowley, a former labor leader who ran for the board himself in 2012.

The supervisors’ pay hike, however, was far above the $5,005-a-year raise recommended by the Civil Service Commission staff.

The staff report, which surveyed cities and counties statewide, recommended they receive the same 4% raise this fiscal year as other city workers and elected officials — that would have given them about $125,000, plus benefits. Most city workers are getting 11% spread out over three years.

Instead, the commission voted to give the supervisors the 12% boost this year, with annual cost-of-living increases in succeeding years.

Under the City Charter, every five years the commission sets the salary for the supervisors and other elected officials.

Given that the annual cost-of-living increase has been running at about 3% a year, the supervisors could see a total pay raise of 24% or more over the next five years.

In a surprise move, Board of Supervisors clerk Angela Calvillo presented the commission with the salary survey she requested from a Board of Supervisors budget and legislative analyst.
The survey compared the supervisors’ pay to supervisors in other counties. The analyst also measured their pay in relation to the counties’ overall budget.

Calvillo said she did not share the report with the board.

Crowley said he looked at both surveys and concluded the commission staff’s recommendation was “artificially low” for a county with an annual $11 billion budget. “That’s a billion dollars a supervisor,” Crowley said. “We want professionals making professional decisions.”

Loretta Lynch says Comey lied when he claimed she told him to downplay Clinton email probe

 

Tough call on which lying hack you are to believe…

From Daily Mail: Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch told investigators she did not ask former FBI Director James Comey to refer to the Hillary Clinton email review as a ‘matter’ instead of an ‘investigation,’ according to a transcript released Monday night.

Comey claimed in his 2017 sworn testimony that Lynch ‘directed’ him to call the investigation a ‘matter’ during a September 2015 meeting.

The transcript of Lynch’s December 19, 2018 interview with a joint task force of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, which was released by Judiciary ranking member Doug Collins, clashes with what Comey testified under oath.

‘I did not. I have never instructed a witness as to what to say specifically. Never have, never will,’ Lynch told the congressional investigators, according to the transcript.

It is not clear if Lynch is only denying specifically directing Comey on what to say in his sworn testimony, or if she is also denying telling him how to refer to the investigation publicly or to the press.

Lynch has been accused of helping stifle any investigations into Hillary Clinton’s emails in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election. The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate faced scrutiny over her use of a private email account to conduct State Department business during her time as Secretary of State under former President Barack Obama.

The incident involving Lynch and Comey took place in the midst of the Clinton email review in September 2015, before the hearing where Comey was asked about the investigation.

Comey said in his 2017 statements that he had been ‘confused and concerned’ by Lynch’s request.

‘The attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation, but instead to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me,’ Comey testified, adding it was one of the reasons he decided to ‘step away from the department’ so the case could be credibly closed.

‘The Clinton campaign, at the time, was using all kind of euphemisms – security review, matters, things like that, for what was going on,’ Comey continued.

Comey said he knew they were getting to a place in the investigation where they would both have to speak about it publicly. ‘And I wanted to know, was she going to authorize us to confirm we had an investigation?’ Comey said. ‘And she said, ‘Yes, but don’t call it that, call it a matter.’ And I said, ‘Why would I do that?’ And she said, ‘Just call it a matter.’’

When asked about Comey’s 2017 statements on the meeting during the congressional investigation last December, Lynch said she had been ‘surprised’ by his testimony.

‘I was quite surprised that he characterized it in that way,’ Lynch said. ‘We did have a conversation about it, so I wasn’t surprised that he remembered that we met about it and talked about it.’

‘But I was quite surprised that that was his characterization of it, because that was not how it was conveyed to him, certainly not how it was intended,’ she continued.
