These ICE f*ckers and their bosses need 3 hots and a cot

From here:

The Intercept has obtained public records that reveal that more than 1,000 complaints have been made about sexual abuse in immigration detention facilities. The systemic nature and scope of violence and sexual abuse also extends to the reign of terror inflicted on immigrants at the hands of Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) agents. The Office of the Inspector General has received over 33,000 horrifying complaints by immigrants made against ICE, revealing the underpinnings and wanton lawlessness of a fascist police state.

It’s undemocratic, it’s immoral, and it’s not acceptable.

These assholes need to be dissolved in a vat of acid.

Teen stalker Roy Moore throws his good name behind weasel-y wannabe predator Kavanaugh!

From the Daily Beast here:

Roy Moore, the disgraced former Alabama Senate candidate, is advising Senate Republicans to “take a stand” and back Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid a sexual-assault allegation.

I guess Roy took a few minutes out from perusing the teen section at Pornhub to make this moral statement.

Stand back, ye infidels, and let the predators pass as the Bible commandeth!

 

U.S. now sells weapons and military support as package!

From the Daily Beast here:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo backed continued U.S. military support for Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen in order to protect $2 billion in U.S. weapons sales, The Wall Street Journal reports.

I would rather not be connected to the war crimes that are happening in Yemen, but hey they’re just my tax dollars and I’m not in charge.

Remember, ‘they’ don’t hate us because of our freedoms, they hate us because we’re killing them all the time.  Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, women in children in Yemen, drones in Niger and Afghanistan.

I understand most Americans would rather be on Instagram than be involved in such discussions but it should be put out there.  The info that is.

 

Music for 9/21/18!!! Lil Uzi Vert, Lana Del Rey, Mariah Carey

@@@ Lil Uzi Vert: New Patek (Atlantic, 2018)  I don’t know when hip hop started using a background singer as an instrument with various uhs and gunshot mimicry and yeahs but when employed it comes across as disposable music.  It happens on this track as well.  Lil Uzi is quick on the mic with solid rhythmic skills but it’s a pretty standard trap arrangement with throbbing fat bass and beats.  Lyrics revolve around the new Patek watch on his wrist and the various romantic situations that arise from the milly in the bank.  He’s got a girl with a fat ass that barely fits in his whip!  He also asks one girl to take a show so she don’t stink.  It’s an almost five minute track that shouldn’t have broken three minutes.

@@@ Lana Del Rey: Mariners Apartment Complex (Polydor, 2018) Is it sexist to say that 70% of Lana Del Rey’s is due to her movie starlet’s lips? To flip it away from the human body, her success is not embedded in transformative music that takes you to another place. She traffics in pretty basic rock star blah. My guess is Lana is gonna be sad and dour on this track but gorgeously so. You took my sadness out of context at the Mariners Apartment Complex. That’s the first line so I get a gold star! The lyrics are pretty standard word salad but there are some nice moments. Why is Lana so sad? I’m not sure I care except she keeps foisting her existential issues on America. The vocal hook is when she says ‘I’m your man!’ which turns all the femme centered lyrics on their head with that statement.

@@@ Mariah Carey: GTFO (Sony, 2018) Mariah goes full batshit crazy with her new song about her hair Get The Frizz Out which should result in a solid tie in with some sort of hair product company. It opens up with a sort of glitched up Prince keyboard centered arrangement. Oh my, it’s not about getting the frizz out she wants him to get the fuck out! Mariah, yo go girl standing up for yourself. It’s an interesting blend of intimate, ballad-y sounds and a defiant sentiment. I didn’t watch the video but it looks like she’s not wearing a lot of clothes.

Powerful white dudes can help powerful white dudes get away with this shit

From CNN here:

At the same time, thousands of young men (disproportionately people of color) have been convicted of sexual assault for conduct similar to or lesser than what is alleged against Kavanaugh — conduct that in some cases also occurred when they were teenagers. Nonetheless, they were arrested, prosecuted, convicted and jailed with sentences in double digits of years, not months. Prosecutors did not decline these cases because the perpetrators were teenagers at the time.

So Republicans are going to testify for her!

From the Guardian here:

On Capitol Hill, Kavanaugh’s supporters suggested Ford may have “mistaken” the identity of her attacker. ’”.

That is some powerful white magic dust right there.  Somebody steps in and floats the idea for her that she mistook him for someone else.

They weren’t there, but they feel comfortable making a statement like that based on nothing.  Literally nothing.

I’m sure she feels confident enough to testify in front of these pricks.

 

I would be honored to have Kavanaugh on the court! #fuckhimbigly

From the Guardian here:

“He told me, ‘You should know that Judge Kavanaugh hires women with a certain look,’” one woman told the Guardian. “He did not say what the look was and I did not ask.”

Sources who spoke to the Guardian about their experiences with Chua and Rubenfeld would only speak under the condition of anonymity because they feared retribution and damage to their future careers.

Mixing his business with his id.

It’s gonna be depressing in the face of women trying to get this shit to stop if this prick ends up on the court.

Music for 9/20/18!!! Silica Angel, SUM

@@@ Silica Angel: Silica Angel EP (Astrobabylon, 2018) Computer music that I got to via an online Australian music magazine. It opens pretty sparsely with some video game bleep business and some other electronic chattering squirts and splurts. It starts turning into a tune with a slightly buzzy synth bass and then slowly opens up with a lot of layers included process vocals, insect type noises. It’s a pleasantly dense mix of sounds that edges up to being too much without going over the line. The second tune, Cicada cartridge, is a ten minute opus centered around strange keyboard sounds, more than one layer. There is the same commitment to squelch and fuzzy bug sounds and processed vocals. It sounds a bit like a sex robot whose waterproof abilities have been compromised.

@@@ SUM: It’s Alright to Be Me (N/A, 2018) This is a New York City band but I saw them interviewed in an Australian online music magazine. This is concious r&b with some gospel flavors and a super positive female singer on the microphone. Tight drum sounds, full horn section, a piano player, and extensive background vocals. It’s a full ensemble explosion and draws a connection back to Stevie Wonder’s pro-black gospel funk tunes.
