Children, Complex, and Donald Trump: Marlow Stern Follow @MarlowNYC Trump in his first two weeks since being elected president: -Has failed to hold a press conference for the longest time of any president-elect -Paid $25 million after defrauding thousands of working-class citizens with sham university Inspired a group of neo-Nazis to hold a summit in Washington where they Nazi-saluted Trump -Failed to "drain the swamp," appointing establishment Republicans to cabinet positions -Reneged on his promise to dismantle Obamacare -Appointed Steve Bannon, a white nationalist/propagandist, to be his chief strategist Wants to change the law to grant his eldest children and son-in-law national security clearance -Got into a two-day Twitter war with the Broadway show 'Hamilton' Argued that his VP-elect should be given a safe space in a Broadway theater -Complained about 'Saturday Night Live's' depiction of him on Twitter Has failed to properly denounce the racially-motivated acts of violence carried out in his name -Canceled meeting with The New York Times, then complained about it on Twitter Held press summit with TV execs where he whined about double-chin photos of himself Has hinted at how he will use the office of the president to enrich himself by: -Having his daughter/business partner sit in on meetings with Japanese PM -Having his daughter/business partner sit in on call with Argentinian president -Allegedly telling UK officials to campaign against wind farms to help his golf course -Feting foreign diplomats with lavish soiree to convince them to stay at his DC hotel -Holding a clandestine meeting with his Mumbai investors about condo complex Tom Nichols @RadioFree Tom Follow The entire playbook is to wear down the media, firehose the public, exhaust critics, and normalize everything. It's working, so far. newwavefeminism: micdotcom: Donald Trump is baiting the press with his tweets — and the media is falling for it The continued coverage of Trump’s tweets trashing the media — and the media dutifully passing along his criticism to the general public —  will only further erode the public’s tenuous trust of the press and their reporting. And if the public doesn’t trust the press, reports on any possible Trump scandals in the future will fall on deaf ears, giving Trump more leeway to defy the democratic norms that have developed over 200 years of constitutional government. By getting the country to distrust the press, Trump could be inoculating himself from facing backlash from real issues the press may report down the line. He could also be softening the blow if he chooses to freeze the press out of his White House. The media needs to stop taking Trump’s bait, or this cycle will only continue.  I really want a series of billboards to go up detailing all of his disgustingly unpresidential acts since being elected.

Animals, Charlie, and Definitely: I BELIEVE THAT IF SOMEONE CHOOSES ART AS THEIR SUBJECT... ... BUT DO NOT CRITICISE THE ISSUES OF THEIR SOCIETY... 883 THEY HAVE BETRAYED THEMSELVES, THEIR CONSCIENCE... ... AND THEIR SOCIETY. - ATENA FARGHADANI SENTENCED TO OVER 12 YEARS IMPRISONMENT FOR DRAWING A CARTOON CRITICISING THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT. zen pencils.com #DRAW4 ATENA scary-monsters-and-super-creeps: worldpeaceinformant: artzandmusiczloverstuff: we-the-anon-family: Atena Farghadani is a 28-year-old Iranian artist. She was recently sentenced to 12 years and 9 months in prison for drawing a cartoon. This cartoon, that she posted on her Facebook page last year, depicts members of the Iranian parliament as animals. It was drawn in protest of new legislature in Iran that will restrict access to contraception and criminalise voluntary sterilisation. Atena’s charges include ‘spreading propaganda against the system’ and ‘insulting members of parliament through paintings’. Last August, 12 members of the elite Revolutionary Guard came to Atena’s house, blindfolded her and took her to the infamous Evin Prison in Tehran. According to Amnesty International: “While in prison last year, Atena flattened paper cups to use them as a surface to paint on. When the prison guards realised what she had been doing, they confiscated her paintings and stopped giving her paper cups. When Atena found some cups in the bathroom, she smuggled them into her cell. Soon after, she was beaten by prison guards, when she refused to strip naked for a full body search. Atena says that they knew about her taking the cups because they had installed cameras in the toilet and bathroom facilities – cameras detainees had been told were not operating.” She was released in November and gave media interviews and posted a video on YouTube detailing her beatings, constant interrogations and humiliating body searches. She was then rearrested possibly in retaliation for speaking out and has been imprisoned ever since. In January, Atena went on a hunger strike to protest the horrible prison conditions. Her health suffered dramatically, and after losing consciousness and suffering a heart attack in February, she was forced to eat again. The quote used in the comic is taken from the speech Atena gave at her trial. It has been translated into English by the Free Atena Facebook page. You can read the whole thing here. Time is now against her, she has just two weeks to lodge an appeal. Michael Cavna, comic journalist for The Washington Post, has launched a campaign appealing to artists to help bring awareness to Atena’s case by creating their own artwork in support of Atena and using the hashtag#Draw4Atena. Can a bunch of artists and a hashtag really make a difference and put pressure on the Iranian Government to release Atena? Probably not. But just remember that Atena is currently in prison enduring horrible conditions, and if her appeal isn’t successful, she will be there for another twelve years. FOR DRAWING A CARTOON AND POSTING IT ON FACEBOOK. Don’t we owe it to her to at least try? Alot worse actually happens out there.. once Being a soldier (which turned me into an activist) showed me.. Signal boost. This definitely deserves a boost Just nasty…. #IF YA WENT HARD FOR CHARLIE HEBDO YOU SHOULD GO HARD FOR THIS

Apparently, Books, and Family: fuzzykitty01 fangiritothefullest indie-band NO BUT DO YOU WANT TO HEAR MY THEORY FOR THIS SCENE This doesn't comply with the books, I realize, but it doesn't exactly not comply either. Why would Malfoy rip a page out of a random book? If he wanted the book, he could have just bought the book himself. He's not poor, his family doesn't discourage learning. He chooses to rip a particular page with a pointed glance out of a book. Why? Think of what this and Dobby's actions of warning have in common: Lucius Malfoy. The one who was apparently talking freely of the dangers that would face the Muggle borns this year. I think Draco knew more about what was going on, or at least figured more out, than he let on to his friends. Why? He was worried. How does this connect to the ripped paper? How did Harry and Ron find out about the basilisk? How did Hermione? A ripped piece of paper on basilisks. Now we're to assume that Hermione found this in a library book and promptly ripped it out to take with her. But why would Hermione, with her love and care for books almost on par with the librarian, rip a page out of a book she could have just checked out? My guess is she didn't find it in the library. My guess is Draco somehow slipped her the piece of paper that he ripped out of a book before school started, detailing the monster he knew was in the Chamber. He slipped Hermione the paper somehow, whether by leaving it on her desk or planting it in her bag. He tried to warn them, as best he could. HOLY SHIT I always wondered why they so importantly showed Malfoy ripping the page from the book. It was strange to me. Yes he's destructive but honestly there is no point in showing that. But you're right- Hermione would NEVER rip out a page of a book- this makes so much sense. THE EPIPHANY I JUST HAD. symphonysoldier912: Ohmyholyshiz 😱
