    Reminder to media: CPAC doesn’t represent the now non-existent conservative movement, but rather is a gathering of fringe players, low travelers, white nationalists and knuckle heads. Being kind, actually.

    That is all they have ever represented.

    Oh dayumn, Missouri.

    Mssouri Governor Eric Greitens was indicted on a felony invasion of privacy charge, a St. Louis prosecutor said in a statement on Thursday. The indictment stems from a probe into an extramarital affair and an allegation of blackmail involving the Republican governor. Kimberly Gardner, city of St. Louis circuit attorney, cited an incident that took place on March 21, 2015, in St. Louis.

    Armed Officer at Stoneman Douglas High School Didn’t Enter Building During Shooting

    An armed police deputy who was on campus at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as Nikolas Cruz gunned down 17 people last week was suspended Thursday because he never went in the building to stop the shooting. At a press conference Thursday, Sheriff Scott Israel said he suspended school resource officer Scot Peterson without pay after speaking to witnesses and watching surveillance footage from outside the school.

    “What I saw was a deputy arrive at the west side of building 12, take up a position, and he never went in,” Israel said. Peterson got on his radio at one point, Israel said, and remained outside the building for “upwards of four minutes.” After he was suspended, Peterson resigned and retired.

    Meanwhile, I see that WV teachers went on strike STATEWIDE today because they’re tired of working for peanuts:

    And they’re pretty savvy about social media and pounding on legislators too…hmm…a trend?

    Thousands of demonstrators flooded the state’s Capitol on Thursday, said Kym Randolph, West Virginia Education Association director of communication. Lines snaked around the building, she said, with some people waiting more than two hours to get in. The crowd was mostly constituted of teachers, but included parents and students, she said.

    “The place was packed,” Randolph said. “It was very loud. That is by far the largest crowd inside the Capitol in a long, long time.”

    I guess they are all collecting SorosChecks? Or maybe just participating in their democracy…the way it was meant to be…

    Teachers in the state feel empowered, Campbell said.

    “I’ve never seen anything like this, since I’ve been here,” she said. “They’re reading bills. They’re talking about it on social media. They’re understanding the process better. They’re reaching out to the legislators at record numbers.”

    The bigger problem with arming teachers is this Barney Fife might have blown away a teacher (if one WERE armed) if he had gone into the building. It amazes me that the arriving “good guys” are supposed to know which are the armed “bad guys” in an active shooter scenario.

As a guy who was in high school and college in the 60’s, it was nothing like these assholes think it was and I seriously doubt anybody who is running a college today is my age or older. Seems to me they are about the same age as Ted Cruz. In fact, the crack smoking dean who just got bounced from USC’s medical school is in his 60’s, so he must have been a long haired hippie grade schooler.

    The answer to that is that they don’t.

    In that case a student helped wrestle away a weapon from crazed gunman in a church, then got shot multiple times by the police for his trouble. He survived.

    LaPierre’s CPAC speech was all about rights. Unsurprisingly only those of gun owners. His solution to school massacres is to turn schools into armed and fortified camps.

    Apparently locking away the students in a compound and requiring teachers to become part-time security guards has no impact on their rights at all.

    Meanwhile, the BS meter is stuck at 11: Kushner’s security clearance is being held up because of…Mueller’s investigation?!?

    Washington (CNN)Jared Kushner has been unable to obtain a full security clearance in part because of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

    Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, is unlikely to obtain the full clearance as long as the special counsel’s probe is ongoing, one of the sources said.
    Kushner’s application for a top-level security clearance has been held up for over a year in part because it cannot be completed while the special counsel’s team continues to probe Kushner’s contacts with Russians and his financial dealings with foreigners, the sources said. During that time, Kushner has been able to access the government’s most sensitive secrets thanks to an interim security clearance. But that access could soon be cut off — unless Trump steps in with a waiver.

    What about the six months or so between the election and the start of Mueller’s investigation???
    Give me a fucking break!

    (2) But progressives who didn’t vote, who aren’t -quite- convinced that voting matters, or who think it’s OK to vote for Fucking Traitor Stein, maybe some of them will realize that the GrOPers are coming for their children. And maybe that’ll make some of ’em vote the safety of their kids.

    I don’t have cable so I didnt’ watch any of CPAC. Did they televise anybody else’s speeches? B/c honestly, if I were the NRA, at this point, any publicity isn’t exactly good publicity. Sure, it’l make the mouth-breathers buy more guns. But it’s gonna piss off a LOTTA folks. I mean, it’s like “how many new Taliban did we create today” every time our troops bomb an Afghan village. But hey, I hope Shooty McRageyPants LaPierre keeps it up. Really, I do. Maybe he’ll pop a fucking aneurysm and stroke out. I’d love for him to spend 20yr as a boxed-in case.

    @Jim, Foolish Literalist: Funny thing about Bernie. I was always a Hillary partisan, but I kinda thought Bernie was OK. Sure, he had to get -taught- to take BLM seriously. But I thought he was -learning-, and that was OK. Mostly, I didn’t inquire deeply, b/c he wasn’t gonna get my support in any primary anyway. Hillary was my candidate. Then I see these vids of him saying “vermont is different from chicago” and …. yaknow, I’m having a LOT of trouble forgiving that shit. And now we find that the IRA was supporting him? And yeah, Tad Devine. We need to get to the bottom of this. If for no other reason, than this: if he’s dirty, his supporters need to know. If he’s clean, same thing. We need to know. There are too many questions.

    @debbie:

    Then shouldn’t Conservatives have disappeared by now [due to Gresham’s Law]?

    Nah. Conservatives were always worthless.

    @bupalos:

    I’ve gotten checks (big ones) from the Heritage Foundation, so I’m something of a mole…. the “conservative movement” is intellectually dominated by people who are still focused on the 1960’s. A whole shitton of this stuff comes as a direct descendant of wholly or partially imagined dystopian scenes that did not occur in Chicago and Ithaca NY c.1962.

    That’s no entirely fair. Many conservatives are less interested in the 1960’s and, instead, are more focused on re-living the 1860’s.

    … the RWNJs aren’t gonna get any more rabid.

    The natural peak point for Right-Wing Nazi Jerks is genocide. So, yes, the RWNJ’s could still get more rabid – and probably will.

    @trollhattan: What, you mean to tell me that even an armed police officer didn’t feel like engaging with a guy wielding an AR-15?!

    So, does that mean the NRA is going to revoke his “good guy with a gun” status?

    @germy: (quoted)

    I know I should be over it, but the speed at which the organized conservative movement became the ideological home of Marion Le Pen, Seb Gorka, Nigel Farage, Dinesh D’Souza and their ilk remains shocking to me.

    Like the proverbial cuckolded spouse, she was the last to find out?

    Well that was wild… Reading this post and did a double take when I realized a bunch of the featured tweets were from my friend Anna. Very cool. If you are not already following @MalteseAnna, do it… you won’t regret it.
