I od
A French government committee has heard testimony, suppressed by the French government at the time and not published online until this week, that the killers in the Bataclan appear to have tortured their victims on the second floor of the club.
The chief police witness in Parliament testified that on the night of the attacks, an investigating officer, tears streaming down his face, rushed out of the Bataclan and vomited in front of him just after seeing the disfigured bodies.
The 14-hour testimony about the November attacks took place March 21st.
According to this testimony, Wahhabist killers reportedly gouged out eyes, castrated victims, and shoved their testicles in their mouths. They may also have disemboweled some poor souls. Women were reportedly stabbed in the genitals – and the torture was, victims told police, filmed for Daesh or Islamic State propaganda. For that reason, medics did not release the bodies of torture victims to the families, investigators said.
But prosecutors at the hearing claimed these reports of torture were “a rumor” on the grounds that sharp knives were not found at the scene. They also claimed that maybe shrapnel had caused the injuries.
Q. For the information of the Commission of Inquiry….can you tell us how you learned that there had been acts of barbarism within the Bataclan: beheadings, evisceration, eyes gouged out …?
Investigator: After the assault, we were with colleagues at the passage Saint-Pierre Amelot when I saw weeping from one of our colleagues who came outside to vomit. He told us what he had seen.
Q. Acts of torture happened on the second floor?
Further on the investigator described how this was kept from relatives:
A. Bodies have not been presented to families because there were beheaded people there, the murdered people, people who have been disemboweled . There are women who had their genitals stabbed.
Q. All this would have been videotaped for Daesh !
A. I believe so. Survivors have said so.
Elsewhere, the investigator says, women were sexually tortured, stabbed in the genitals, and their eyes were plucked out. People were decapitated.
The clerk of the inquiry (or “rapporteur”) pressed the chief of committee for clarity on whether victims were decapitated or mutilated. The committee chief replied that the authorities had given out conflicting information that said victims were merely shot or blown up. He then added this damning statement about one victim’s father discovering the gruesome truth in the morgue:
Mr. President Georges Fenech Indeed, the Committee is troubled by this information which has appeared nowhere [in the media]. Thus, the father of one of the victims sent me a copy of a letter he sent to the investigating judge, which I quote in summary: “On the causes of the death of my son A., at the forensic institute in Paris, I was told, and what a shock it was for me at that moment, they had cut off his testicles, had put them in his mouth, and he was disemboweled. When I saw him behind glass, lying on a table, a white shroud covering it up to the neck, a psychologist was with me. He said: This is “the only presentable part, your son’s left profile.” I found that he had no right eye. I made the remark; I was informed that they had punctured his eye and sliced down the right side of his face, where there was a very large hematoma that we could all see. ”
This particular witness could corroborate the statements that we heard from one of the BAC officials, that one of his investigators vomited immediately on leaving the Bataclan after finding a decapitation and evisceration. Are you aware of such facts?
A prosecutor appearing before the inquiry replied lamely that no sharp knife had been found at the scene that could have been used for torture. Perhaps shrapnel had caused the mutilation, he said. The head of the committee asked if an explosion would have placed testicles in a victim’s mouth:
Prosecutor: I specify, for the sake of clarity: some of the bodies found at the Bataclan were extremely mutilated by the explosions and weapons, to the point that it was sometimes difficult to reconstruct the dismembered bodies. In other words, injuries described this father may also have been caused by automatic weapons, by explosions or projections of nails and bolts that have resulted.
Q. Would those have put a man’s balls in in his own mouth?
Prosecutor: I do not have that information.

I gotta say I love Drumpf's latest bullshit. Motherfucker never thinks things all the way through, but this one is a particularly delicious slice of self-inflicted Catch-22: if he wasn't wiretapped, he's lying for the hundred billionth time; if he was, a FISA court concluded there was probable cause to further investigate that he was getting jiggy with Putin's dong again. Marvelous.

Latest bullshit's particularities aside, there's a clear pattern here which I at least have not seen or heard mentioned by anyone, a fact rather disturbing in itself since it doesn't exactly take a PhD to notice it. (If whoever's reading can let me know this has been pointed out, I'd appreciate it!). So:

— After Trump was correctly called a bigot for shitting on Latin Americans, Muslims, African-Americans, you name it:

"Hillary Clinton is a bigot! She's a bigot!"

— After he was correctly called a sexual predator following the airing of the grab-'em-by-the-pussy/I-just-start-kissing-'em/I-go-in-their-dressing-room-because-I-own-the-joint tape:

"Bill Clinton is the biggest sexual predator ever!"

— After his and his team of immoral subcreatures' bullshit was correctly called fake news:

"I'm running against the dishonest mainstream media and their fake news!"

— After the the shitty impression generated by his relation with Russia escalated to shock in light of constant new evidence and correctly started being called the biggest scandal since Watergate:

"How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate!"

As you very well know, the list is far, far longer, but you get the point. While it's tempting to say that these are simply man-baby knee-jerk reactions in the "You're the puppet!" vein, there's something much more perverse at work here: hijacking accusations to sling them back verbatim is a TEXTBOOK fascist disinformation tactic, the rationale behind it being that most people's minds are a coupla sandwiches short of a picnic anyway (can't say they're wrong there), which makes the masses unable to come up with and/or process fine distinctions over a single term/concept. The consequence is that the counter-attack, no matter how unfathomably untruthful, becomes exponentially amplified, because it's not just "the Leader" and his tweets and Conway and Spicer and that blonde mass of putrefaction who sits near Anderson Cooper every night —what's her name, McEnany—, it's the original accusers/critics who, to the great intellectually unwashed, keep bringing up a word which has been redefined to them by Steve Bannon. The machine feeds itself: there's no need to shoot criticisms of your own invention at your rivals when all you have to do is fuck up, get called on it, fire back the same fuckup you got called on, lather, rinse, repeat.

Just the shit he posted about Obama — I shiver every time I remember that the President of the United States called his predecessor "bad (or sick!)" on social media... Jesus Fucking ass Christ — is an impeachable offense according to some.

Also...
Have you guys heard of the Emolument Clause? Trump's been violating he constitution since the day he took office, but there's an actual clause prohibiting his refusal to put his assets in a blind Trust. Impeach!

Then remove from office! Not the same thing! Must do both! Then impeach EVERYONE until someone ½ sane takes his place. Anyone know the party affiliation of the current Post Master General?

Whatever gets him through a news cycle.

Another example of what I wrote about, just in case anyone thought I was cherry-picking: on multiple occasions (after batshit crazy statements; the "small loan" of a million dollars immediately comes to mind) it's been correctly said that this infrahuman lost his grip on reality. What did he say after Nancy Pelosi and others called for Jeff Sessions to resign?

"Democrats are losing their grip on reality!"

Joe Sixpack & Hockey Mom can't deal with this. They're like dogs being told to stand up and sit at the same time: they don't know what to do. (Sorry to put it that way, but... eh, not really — if anything, with that comparison I'm insulting dogs). So, they revert to their default mode of unquestioning stupidity, and we're living the results: they voted against their own interests, they think the fucking AYATOLLAH OF FAKE NEWS (remember this mook was doing it way back in the day, when he posed as his own PR guy) is more trustworthy than Christiane Amanpour, and more or less half the country seems to be A-OK with the immigration ban. It is GLAMOROUS. Pass the angel dust.

Yes. ACA shit is going to hurt (read: CRIPPLE) millions and millions of people.

I've been under the impression from talking to folks in he rural Midwest that ACA is just reviled by everyone in this part of the country, regardless of party. I'm still a newb to small town life, so I thought it was believable (if terrifying) that EVERYONE in reddish states just can't stand the way their "freedoms" are challenged, the way they're being "ripped off" by ACA.

But... recent town halls with my congressional rep have shown me that the way these folks talk when they're bitching about the gub'ment and the way they actually feel are very different.

HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of people have been flooding the rep's few-and-far-between public appearances, and REALLY taking him to task for backing a president and a policy shift that would disembowel the ACA.

I mean... people are PISSED.

Doctors, mental health workers, patients, hospital administrators have all been showing up at these meetings to voice their opposition to "repeal and replace." Why? Because the entire infrastructure of medical care and administration and billing has spent the last two years rearranging itself to fit with the ACA model. It was a process that resulted in BILLIONS of dollars being spent by the US health care industry, and if this system is "repealed and replaced" ... ESPECIALLY if it's done in the "same day," as Capitol Hill Repos are suggesting, would mean all that time and money was just fucking wasted. Insurance companies have hired and trained people as ACA Specialists... hospitals have refitted their entire model... now they're going to have to do it again? To take a massive, dinosauric step backwards?

ALSO... if you live in a state that expanded Medicaid, then there are tons of people (unemployed, underemployed, laid off and job searching, or otherwise limited by income) who now have free access to most health care (no psychiatrists, for some Fucking reason, and no physical therapists, but PCPs and specialists and counselors and social workers and psychologists, yup!) where they previously had nothing. Plenty of these people voted for Trump, voted to "repeal and replace" (hahahahaha, with what though? The fuckaround they introduced like two days ago? BAAAHAHAHA), but now that things are actually moving in that direction, people are freaking the fuck out.

NOW.. why the FUCK did they vote for Trump, or their Republican reps when they all made it entirely clear that this was their goal? FUCKED IF I KNOW. But now they're upset.

Anything that turns Trump supporters against Trump policies might be a blessing.

I think a lot of people have misunderstood ACA from the very beginning. Some were probably shocked to find that their ACA marketplace plan IS "Obamacare." That's their own dumbass fault, but still... this might get reallly, really bad for a while, but if enough people wake up and speak out against this dictatorial nonsense, then maybe we'll eventually find ourselves on a road to FIXING "Obamacare," and maybe even turning it into what it was supposed to be in the first place (universal single payer health insurance), before Bart Stupak raised his little "moral" objections to the ambiguous phrasing of the original bill regarding abortion, and went on a campaign to turn Dems and Republicans alike against the original language (he and his asshole friends succeeded, of course, and he's probably the worst Democrat in history, and I want him to cry into his fluffy fucking pillow tonight.)

BLAH BLAH BLAH

ANYWAY... people from both sides of the aisle are having that "Oh shit" moment I wanted them to have in the fucking booths on Nov. 8. Better late than never. Of course a veritable fuckton of these folks are still sounding off about the ACA violating their "civil liberties," and are still bitching and whining about the cost of opting out of insurance (it's negligible. Couple bucks a month, tops), but those people have had their brains fried by InfoWars and Fox & Friends, so they're probably a lost cause.

In trying to find humour in some of this because I just don't know what the fuck else to do. The "balloon" is so full of hot air at this point that the very earth risks being carried away by a strong wind.

Did you attend the ACLU Resistance Training meeting on Saturday?

A video is still up, though it's more fun to watch with an enthusiastic group.
