Minnesota Police not content to stay in city, walk around suburbs shooting civilians on their front porch with paint pellets. Why? Because they were standing there

IgG4: No that was in Minneapolis. And if a cop tells you like 50 times to get in your house during a curfew, get in your farking house.


Curfew doesn't mean you have to be inside. They were already obeying curfew orders.

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is publicly laying the groundwork for a mutiny against the office of the "President". I cannot express how groundshaking this letter is in a Fark headline without bringing your mom into the discussion

For anyone who does not recognize the seriousness of that letter, GEN Milley is laying the groundwork to do two things:

1) To protect his own job AND the job of anyone who Trump tries to forcibly relieve of duty.  All that letter officially says is to protect American values: that is also a direct instruction written in "command-ese" to disobey orders from any source - very definitely including POTUS - which run contrary to those values.  The way it is written, the only "reason" to relieve anyone of their position who agrees with that letter is that you plan to take actions contrary to those American values.  QED, if they are relieved of duty by Trump now, it is because he plans to take those contrary actions.

2) Equally as serious, if not more so, Milley is laying the legal and ethical groundwork for a potential mutiny.  Not a coup, necessarily (in fact almost certainly not), but definitely a mutiny against the presidential chain of command.  Particularly and especially with that handwritten addendum.  He is careful to call out and defend both the explicit chain of command and the moral authority from the state governors, and then says in multiple ways that their ultimate duty is to American values and the American people.  NOT orders from the president.  If this goes down the way it is looking, this letter will frame the action as a defense of American values and the American people, against a president who not only doesn't care about either one of those, but is actively working to the detriment of those things.

Finally, the fact that his name is attached to this and it's been released publicly is just gigantic.  Serving military officers don't do that.  They don't release overtly political statements like this, no matter what we might wish Mattis had done years ago.  There's literally hundreds of years of tradition (in an institution where tradition really matters, no matter what cynics might think) and officers have it hammered home over and over and over again over years do not interfere in or publicly speak about the political process or chain of command without an incrediblygood reason.  Here, GEN Milley has done both. Overtly.

Mattis's letter was a broadside against the office of the president.  This letter is damn near a nuke.

Maybe you should drive: I hate Trump as much as the next red blooded American.  But let's not act like Fark isn't an echo chamber.


Free Republic is an echo chamber.  Non approved thoughts are deleted, the poster's account is deleted, and his IP is banned.

Fark lets you post stupid shiat.  And then we point out the lies and laugh at the stupid.

On the other hand, I do like that Trump's administration is so eager to set the precedent that ex-presidents should be thoroughly investigated instead of just being let off the hook so "the nation can heal".

Can't wait until it's Trump's turn in the barrel and there are actual crimes to look at.

pkjun: It was thoughtful of Republicans to leave the Democrats several playbooks' worth of victim-discrediting tactics, and it was gracious of Democrats to accept the gift. It's nice to see them agreeing on something, even if that something is the necessity of protecting abusive men in positions of power.


You mustve missed the flood of reporting over the last 48 hours that shows pretty convincingly that Tara Reade is a lying grifter with no credibility, and that the details of her story fail to add up.

She had the benefit of the doubt.  That doesnt require checking your brain at the door and disregarding common sense when all the facts are telling you a story is obvious horseshiat.

There are people who can look at this incident and tell themselves that it's okay, everything that happend is okay, and will then release a video of the event to the world believing that everyone else will see it and conclude that it was okay.

Imagine being wired that way.
