A new meltdown. Claims its wrong for Republicans to use Nazi comparisons, but okay for him. Also claims he is Episcopalian. I guess that is not a very religious type of Christianity? Granted he could be making that up to since he is fake news.

What were you expecting to have dne by March 19th that isn't done yet?

It's not so much what he hasn't done but what he has done, firing Flynn instead of traitor cuck Pence was a massive mistake, hiring McMasters who is a McCain/Ryan mole peddled by Kushner, massive mistake. Backtracking on the Russia/Ukraine issue. Neocons have entered the circle.

Episcopalian is the Christian creed that allows both Protestants and Catholics to have something to laugh at.

It's essentially the Anglican Church - i.e. the English church that broke away from Rome when the Pope expressed some problems with giving Henry VIII a divorce from Catherine of Aragon so he could go bang Anne Boleyn with a clear conscience. (The king's chancellor, Thomas More, a Catholic himself was also critical of the decision. Being a restrained sort of fellow, Henry had him locked up in the Tower of London to persuade him of the error of his ways, and then beheaded when he still wouldn't bend. For this reason, in the Catholic Church, it's saint Thomas More, one of the most recent martyrs.)

But the Episcopalian church claims it doesn't fall under the English church's hierarchy. It looks a lot like the Catholic Church, behaves like the Catholic Church, does the odd Marian devotion like the Catholic Church, but still calls itself Protestant.

Personally I would like him to publicly put all federal and federally funded public servants on notice that if they use their office in the pursuit of an anti-American totalitarian agenda that their days are numbered.

That they will be risking not only the loss of their job but may face prosecution.

I've been thinking about this Jew Goldstein business for much of the day and I've come to the following conclusion.

If Trump is unable or unwilling to offer any first ammendment protection to meme warriors and allows instances like this to "fall below his radar" then there is no compelling reason for said meme warriors to throw themselves into the woodchipper of progressive political aggression in the hope of choking it with their very bodies (derp! they cant imprison us all. derp!)

"The bigger picture" is of little consolation when you're up for tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees at best or at worst being raped by psychopaths in a federal prison.

Trump as much as anyone should know that merely being charged with a crime is punishment enough, even if there's no chance it results in a conviction. Anyone ever filled out a job application form that asks "have you ever been charged with a felony"?

No, either we are relevant and worth protecting or we are irrelevant and should not waste another keystroke until the fortress walls encompass us they way they did for BlackLivesMatter under Obama.

It's really very, very simple. Trump finds a lackey who can trawl the net for this kind of shit. He gives that lackey a secretary that can get in contact with the relevant assholes causing legal issues for the Jew Goldstein's of America. Said lackey calls said asshole. He tells them that the President has assigned him the task of rooting out misuse of public office for the purposes of political agenda. He tells said asshole that he/she is going to face review, and if it's found that so much as a single more pressing case (like fucking murders perhaps?) is being overlooked in favour of white-knighting for left wing media celebrities then said asshole will be suspended pending review, then to be fired and charged with everything the DOJ can throw at them.

Or is there some dimension of this chess game that eludes me, because it seemed to work swimmingly for the fuckwits in Obama's administration.

Any one of us on the forum could make ten such calls a day with ease. The effect on morale in our camp would be epic. So what gives? Is it that Trump sees more political value in using us as shock troops, and shrugging at our losses?

Excellent post. I do not sit inside Trump's brain, obviously, but I am getting the feeling that the things that we want and the things that Trump focused on for the purposes of the campaign are not necessarily the things that are nearest and dearest to Trump's heartstrings.

Back in November, I would have liked to imagined that saying "Kill all white men!" or "Blow up the white house!" or deciding to physically beat the shit out of people on the right, (including someone like Michael Savage to whom Trump says he owes a debt of gratitude), might have warranted more than a pissweak 'perhaps' tweet from Trump.

Instead, tweeting flashing gifs is now, apparently, a hate crime; there are still zero protections for straight, white, christian, or male; and, once again a person with multiple connections to those in power and with ties to child sexual exploitation gets an unusual level of protection from the Police.

It more fits my experience of throwing away 'Useful Idiots', than a Benevolent Kingship.

Or in other words, did anyone gushing over the concept of Trump playing 4D chess forget what the purpose and outcomes of the pawns were?

Anti-Anglican church rant on a manosphere forum in a thread about a paranoid J?

Henry VIII was a Catholic; the Anglican service was developed later and independently of Henry. More was an intolerant man who had dissenters burned at the stake. There isn't any Marian devotion that I have ever seen, and the Anglican/Episcopalian church does not at all behave like the Catholic Church. The Episcopal is infinitely more swoosh-friendly and female-run, and overall more lefty (until very recently, maybe they will soon be tied).

Rational liberal journalist, Michael Tracey, goes to Kurt Eichenwald's house to cover the Eichenwald home liquidation sale.

I'm not posting all of the tweets. You should scroll through them all yourself. Well worth it.

Looks like Kurt is planning a big civil lawsuit:

Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald filed a lawsuit Monday against the man who allegedly caused him to have a seizure on Twitter, and is potentially looking to sue more than 90 other individuals for similar alleged actions.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested John Rivello in March, months after he allegedly sent an animated image known as a GIF that Eichenwald says caused him to have a seizure. Eichenwald suffers from epilepsy, and an FBI affidavit said that Rivello told other Twitter users that he hoped the GIF “sends [Eichenwald] into a seizure.”

The civil lawsuit filed by Eichenwald’s attorney in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, Northern Division, alleges battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and purposeful infliction of bodily harm. A press release about the complaint said that through the civil discovery process, Eichenwald’s attorneys “intend to identify [individuals who allegedly conspired with Rivello and to pursue claims against them as well.”

Heroic meme warrior has federal charges dropped. State and civic cases remain.

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/cou...-sending-tweet-set-dallas-journalists-seizure http://archive.is/cnEkT

Federal charge dropped against man accused of sending tweet that set off Dallas journalist's seizure.

Federal prosecutors have dismissed their case against a Maryland man accused of sending a tweet that induced a seizure to Dallas-based journalist Kurt Eichenwald last year.

A judge granted the U.S. attorney's motion to drop a cyberstalking charge against John Rayne Rivello on Nov. 21. The charge was dismissed without prejudice, meaning that prosecutors can choose to refile it.

Rivello, 30, still faces one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Dallas County. That charge carries a hate-crime enhancement.

Eichenwald also has sued Rivello for monetary damages.

In a statement, Rivello's attorney David Gerger said his client, a Marine veteran who suffers from PTSD, "is thrilled that the DOJ dismissed this exaggerated case."

Eichenwald, a senior writer at Newsweek and a contributing editor for Vanity Fair, said last December that someone had tweeted a flashing image at him that induced an eight-minute epileptic seizure. The image read: "You deserve a seizure for your post."

The tweet — from an account named @jew_goldstein — came shortly after a segment on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show where Eichenwald and Carlson had argued with each other about their political biases and journalistic missteps.

Eichenwald's wife found him during the seizure and called 911. She also photographed the tweet and replied to it, saying that she had reported it to the authorities.

This is his wife, you caused a seizure. I have your information and have called the police to report the assault.
— Kurt Eichenwald (@kurteichenwald) December 16, 2016

Authorities found a number of direct messages on the account that made reference to Eichenwald, according to a criminal complaint against Rivello. "I hope this sends him into a seizure" and "let's see if he dies," two read.

Another said Eichenwald "deserves to have his liver pecked out by a pack of emus."


:laugh:

Police traced the Twitter account to Rivello's iCloud account, where they found an image of him holding his driver's license.

The iCloud account included other files related to Eichenwald, authorities said:

The animated image sent to Eichenwald.
A screenshot of the tweet and the reply from Eichenwald's wife.
A screenshot of Eichenwald's Wikipedia biography, with his date of death listed as Dec. 16 — the day after the tweet was sent.
A list of triggers for epileptic seizures.
A Dallas Observer article about Eichenwald trying to find his attacker.
A screenshot of a website showing Eichenwald's home address.

Rivello was arrested at his home in March.

The Dallas County indictment says Rivello used a deadly weapon — the animated image — to assault Eichenwald. A hate-crime enhancement was added because of Rivello's "bias or prejudice against a group identified by race, ancestry, or religion, namely: persons of Jewish faith or descent."

At the time, Eichenwald's attorney Steven (((Liberman))) compared the incident to someone sending anthrax or a bomb in the mail.

Eichenwald reported that dozens of copycats sent flashing images to him in the aftermath of the incident, adding that he'd passed them along to authorities.

The moral of the story. If you're going to send a seizure inducing gif to a (((tentacle porn loving cuck))) knowing it actually has the potential to cause harm then don't leave an evidence trail a mile long.

Under these circumstances it's actually miraculous the federal charges were dropped.

In Rivello's defence he and his kids were just trying to prove to his wife that seizures exist.

As an aside - and I know it's an ancient post - the reason for this is that the American church broke off after the Revolution, as the law required allegiance to the British monarch. Apostolic succession was initially re-established through Scottish bishops, instead.

It's a shame that their leadership has gone haywire, because between the rich history and establishing some of the more beautiful places of worship in the United States, the Episcopalian Church ought to have a stronger position in this country.

With Newsweek teetering on the brink and all you have left is your status as a meme.

Here he is trying to go after Diversity&Comics:

The funny part is that Eichenwald actually defended this Youtuber because some actual comic-pros were regretting that he was not killed on one of his tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

But Eichenwald took offense that Richard did not find Eichenwald 100% innocent regarding all child-abuse allegations. It's stupid bullshit. In this case I would even agree with Eichenwald that you should not accuse somone of being a child-molester since Eichenwald actually helped indict some pedophiles.

However in the same email Eichenwald demands that Richard also admits that Trump and Russia are a thing.

That bloke is batshit crazy and sane at the same time.

Newsweek can now add landlord dispute to its list of troubles

The next time investigators from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office try to raid Newsweek’s offices, they may have to search at a new address.
Newsweek Media Group has been involved in a running legal dispute with Guardian Life Insurance Co. of America over its sublease at 7 Hanover Square in downtown Manhattan — and appears to have only narrowly averted eviction this week with a back rent tab of $348,957.31.
Dev Pragad, the chief executive of NMG — previously known as IBT Media — claims it has been paying its rent for the fifth and sixth floors but that the landlord was refusing to cash its checks.
Judge Margaret Chan of Manhattan state court on Feb. 14 signed an injunction that said the tenant has until Feb 28 to pay “the outstanding rent and additional rent arrears.”
A spokesman for NMG said the company forestalled eviction at the 11th hour by paying the back rent.

“Newsweek Media Group’s landlord discontinued all proceedings and withdrew all notices against the company,” the spokesman said. “Newsweek Media Group is up to date on all rental payments.”
Separately, two more journalists were fired at Newsweek in recent days: breaking news editor Gersh Kuntzman — who was axed by phone on Friday — and national news editor John Seeley, who was let go on Tuesday.
More layoffs are anticipated. “They are thinning the herd,” said one insider.

RE: Wife calls police after her Newsweek editor husband has seizure from animated gif

Couldn't happen to nicer people. Newsweek is one of the worst of the worst. Can we pre-order tickets to the eviction show? Nothing like seeing rats being flung out of the ship and on to the street. :D
