Police say a Florida woman refused orders to drop a piece of concrete before two attempts to Taser her missed and she threw the object at an officer, hitting him in the shoulder. The woman was then tackled, pepper-sprayed and now faces several charges. https://abcn.ws/2EtzxHS https://t.co/lnVeysbbEx
qwhite interesting how the police didn’t shoot her and claim stand your ground

Hey, um... @Unionhawk? I just removed the suspension for an fbomb earlier. I know we're painfully inconstant for those things but do refrain from language like that. Stuff happens, and not all folks go "eh, did that affect anyone?" and think of a polite talking to as a way to deal with issues.

Trump working on extraditing #Erdogan foe, #Turkey's foreign minister claims https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/trump-working-extraditing-erdogan-foe-gulen-turkish-foreign-minister-claims-n948481 via @nbcnews

Trump's losing it on Twitter again
 
It's gonna be really weird if we get a new president and they're not Mad Online so mostly everyone stops caring about politics again
“What is amazing to me is that so many people thought that they could go in and pull the wool over Robert Mueller's eyes.” Sen. Doug Jones https://wapo.st/2BbZrM4
I mean you won because they ran a literal pedophile so I'm not 100% sure it's that unexpected

@TimStone I was think about that too, how weird it will be when America has a president who only uses a normal amount of internet
This is kinda news adjacent as it is political fundraising but I need to share the email the NDP just sent me
 
3:17 PM
This is A+ @GodEmperorDune content
Pugs over Dougs any day
 
Ash
The name (which confused me at first, but hey, it got me to open the email), the pug picture, all of it. Just...yes good way to get my attention
 
At the request of many, I will be reviewing the case of a “U.S. Military hero,” Major Matt Golsteyn, who is charged with murder. He could face the death penalty from our own government after he admitted to killing a Terrorist bomb maker while overseas. @PeteHegseth @FoxNews
> In 2011, Golsteyn took a polygraph test while applying for a job with the CIA. He told interviewers that while on deployment in 2010 he and another soldier took the alleged Taliban suspect off-base, shot him and buried his remains
Just so we're clear here, he admitted multiple times to taking a dude out back and murdering him into a shallow grave. So naturally the President is Concerned and Jacob Wohl wants to give him the medal of honor

3:33 PM
@TimStone aaaaaaaaaA
That does not a hero make
 
They're like "Oh but he was a terrorist bomb maker!" and like, okay? Y'all had him in custody, if that was the case he was already set to be punished, no extrajudicial murder involved!
White House adviser Stephen Miller says on @FaceTheNation the administration believes the Texas Obamacare ruling will be appealed to SCOTUS and that the law will be ruled unconstitutional
1. lol
2. Look it's Stephen Miller we were doing so well not seeing his white supremacist face

@Ash hell yeah
@Wipqozn whew way to co-opt a movement
@TimStone urgh, I kinda feel bad for all the dunking he got
 
DeFazio on climate: "This is the existential threat to the future of the planet." Insanity. For comparison, the atmosphere Venus is 96.5% CO2 -- and the planet is still there. In contrast, Earth's atmosphere is only ~0.04% CO2. https://politi.co/2rC6QA3 via @politico
I... I think this is news. Given the dumbass that said it (not Defazio, Steve Milloy) is in the trump EPA transition team
 
6:42 PM
@GodEmperorDune Yuuuuuup. Biggest of whew.
 
7:11 PM

Drat
 
@Kevin I mean it’s a helluva take by a person in power

There have been so many great columns and essays about PDP following the reporting that @jaredlholt and I did last week. I especially love Max’s piece, which helps explain why we can’t discuss this controversy without addressing demonetization. http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2018/12/why-pewdiepies-anti-semitic-youtube-jokes-dont-hurt-him.html#comments
 
8:49 PM
@TimStone yeah, if you're in the army and get charged with murder you absolutely did it
If they can not make it an issue they will
Conversely if they have to make it an issue, you did it
like that one seal who was so bad his squad unzeroed his sights and fired warning shots around
he, too, absolutely did it
 
9:22 PM
@GodEmperorDune Yeah though if he was fired from Twitter for being a "bad manager" who made women feel uncomfortable idk what to do with that information. Unclear whether his death was an intentional suicide or just a drug accident, but
@Unionhawk Yeah, just galaxy brain denialism here by the president, or openly admitting that he too would shoot someone in cold blood which he would in his head but not in reality because he'd be grossed out by the whole blood explosion thing
 
9:54 PM
I'm sure resistance hero mad dog mattis will let him know what's up
 
The owners of Joe’s Stone Crab, Florida's iconic South Beach restaurant, have removed claws as an entree option from fixed menus for large parties, offering Joe’s signature dish only as an appetizer. There are not enough crabs anymore, they say. https://nyti.ms/2CgIiTs
Very Weird that the article doesn't seem to mention Rick Scott at all
 
10:23 PM
@TimStone I think it’s more of a “it’s cool and good to murder nonwhites” thing
 
Fair
 
@TimStone does rick Scott have crabs?
 
Uhhhhhh I mean I'm gladly not sure about that but his typically Republican environmental policies did help encourage the formation of the red tide that killed the crabs!
 
@TimStone ah i didn't realize it was about the lack of local crabs
i guess they loved the red tide so much they sent him to washington to implement it there
 
Yeah, it's actually the Stone Crab that the restaurant is named after, heh

Shoutout to the amazing @rainbowcards - she's making Christmas a less lonely time for LGBTQ people whose families don’t accept them ❤️🏳️‍🌈 https://t.co/erfmuG8AMZ

Days before a deadline to avert a government shutdown, Republicans in the House have a problem: Lame duck members have stopped showing up to votes. https://nyti.ms/2EpFpkD
Lol
Uhhhhhh wtf
About 4 miles from where McKinsey held a luxurious retreat for its consultants this year in China, the Chinese government was holding thousands of Uighur Muslims in an indoctrination camp. https://nyti.ms/2CgN0Rb
 
My first thought was that geographically that was a weird place to hold a retreat! And the picture did not disappoint
> McKinsey defends its work around the world, saying that it will not accept jobs at odds with the company’s values
lmao
The follow up question should have been "Okay so do you have values?" but was not because the answer would have been "no" or "money"
