A Big Mystery Involving The Origin Of 4/20 Has Finally Been Solved

quote [ Armed with a treasure map drawn by the Coast Guardsman himself, the friends would meet after school — at 4:20 p.m. — to try to find the stash. ]

For some reason this is important. Kudos to HuffPo for keeping us updated on this, but fuck HuffPo for autoplay videos. Happy 4/20 everyone!

That 'Armada' Heading To North Korea? Actually, It Sailed South

quote [ "We are sending an armada, very powerful," Trump told Fox Business News, warning that Kim Jong Un "is doing the wrong thing." ]

OK, so much for being on the verge of war with NK. So...miscommunication, deliberate fake-out, or mutiny?

Why one Republican voted to kill privacy rules: “Nobody has to use the Internet”

quote [ US Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) was hosting a town hall meeting when a constituent asked about the decision to eliminate privacy rules. ]

I'm guessing Rep. Sensenbrenner still uses Encyclopedia Britannica and buys porn at the newsstand.

Eating Dogs Banned in Taiwan—A First in Asia

quote [ Killing, selling and consuming dogs (and cats) is now illegal in Taiwan. Will South Korea and mainland China follow suit? ]

Why eat dogs when you can just go to Arby's?

The media has totally fallen for Trump's cruise missile reality show

quote [ With Syria strike, the president got approval even from tough critics swept up in the drama. ]

If there's one thing our so-called president knows how to do, it's playing the media. Only now he gets to do it with real bombs, missiles, and lives.

Twitter Sues Homeland Security To Protect Anonymity Of 'Alt Immigration' Account

quote [ Twitter also says DHS "requested" that the company not reveal the existence of the summons. Twitter did not comply with either the summons or the request for silence ]

Follow @ALT_uscis here. Good stuff, along with all the other AltGov feeds.
Long Live the Deep State.

Pentagon wants to declare more parts of world as temporary battlefields

quote [ White House is asked to designate ‘temporary areas of active hostility’, giving commanders same latitude to launch actions as in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria ]

So basically this takes elected, civilian policy makers out of the whole war-waging equation. What could possibly go wrong?

Senate Democrats have votes to block Gorsuch

quote [ Mitch McConnell reiterates that he's prepared to kill the filibuster to get the high court nominee confirmed. ]

Looks like the Democrats may have found their spine.
Still TBD: whether this is really a good idea.
