So says a Hawaii federal judge in a stunning put-down of President Trump’s second temporary ban—our robed rulers have spoken. Not even a president can gainsay them.
“The hold is aimed at the March 6 Executive Order 13780 which carefully cited legal and constitutional, plus national security reasons, for its temporary stop to the inflow of refugees from six conflict-prone Muslim countries, pending the development of new screening procedure to exclude migrants who may subsequently attack Americans.”
Trump should stop tip-toeing around the issue and ban all refugees henceforth.
Web creator Tim Berners-Lee on taking back control of the Web:
“We must work together with web companies to strike a balance that puts a fair level of data control back in the hands of people, including the development of new technology such as personal ‘data pods’ if needed and exploring alternative revenue models such as subscriptions and micropayments.”
That’s just for a start. But nowhere on his list do I see banning auto-play video, which I would think would be a necessary first step to getting back our control of data.
The former music festival, locally famed for its traffic snarls and street crowd scenes, is this year focusing on anti-Trump rhetoric:
“SXSW’s chief programming officer Hugh Forrest praised the political slant on this year’s festival.
“’There is definitely a degree of politics or political focus that may not have been there in previous years,’ said Forrest. ‘We hope people walk away with a little better understanding of issues and the players driving the issues.’
“Forrest, who voted for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, previously claimed to be ‘grieving’ following President Trump’s victory in November. He also claimed to be excited about SXSW’s ‘role’ in ‘paving a more progressive path to the future.'”
SXSW claims to have music acts this year from Somalia and Libya, countries on President Trump’s travel ban, and otherwise is promoting Islam’s fight against Trump.
While the “deep state” continues to undermine Trump at every opportunity, the business community is enthusiastic about his presidency. After all, he’s the jobs president — versus Barry’s legacy as the food stamps and welfare president.
“…if you were born a woman in the West you won life’s lottery. Apart from having longer orgasms and a longer lifespan than men and basically – secretly – being in charge of men, you get more favourable treatment in the courts, you’re more likely to go to university, you benefit from positive discrimination in the workplace…”

“I still think it’s stunning how survivable Trump is going to be amidst the flack and drubbing he gets. Trump is military academy man. Construction boss man. Scrap with the NY Press man. Reality TV man. Divorce man. Billionaire man.
“I still think he’s the walking personification of fuck you money, that thing that so many Americans wish they had.”
