What Fresh Hell? for Thanksgiving, 2017: so much juicy news, and nearly all white meat!

Headline of the Day:

Trump: Today’s Terror Attack In Egypt Proves We Need A Wall To Keep Mexicans Out Of The United States

Also today in Fire & Fury: this is how black professional athletes should respect our great country, our great national anthem, and our military, the most powerful on earth:

Donald Trump returned to a favourite subject on Thursday, telling a US coast guard audience the air force was ordering a new plane that was “almost like an invisible fighter”.

The plane in question, the F-35, is not invisible, though it is unusually small and designed to be less visible to radar than conventional aircraft. Its development, however, has proved all too visibly costly and riddled with problems.

Trump first startled reporters with talk of an invisible plane in October, when he discussed the F-35 at a military briefing in hurricane-hit Puerto Rico.

“Amazing job,” Trump said then. “So amazing we are ordering hundreds of millions of dollars of new airplanes for the air force, especially the F-35. You like the F-35? ... You can’t see it. You literally can’t see it. It’s hard to fight a plane you can’t see.”

He also said: “That’s an expensive plane you can’t see. As you heard, we cut the price very substantially. Something that other administrations would never have done – that I can tell you.”

According to the pool report of the president’s Thanksgiving Day visit to Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet, in Florida, Trump told his audience he had discussed the “invisible” plane with “some air force guys”. He asked them, he said, if it would perform in a dogfight like similar planes he had seen in movies.

“They said: ‘Well, it wins every time because the enemy cannot see it, even if it’s right next to it, it can’t see it,’” Trump said.

The coast guard members laughed...

Sen. Lisa Murkowski says she supports GOP efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate, the Alaska Republican wrote in an op-ed for a local newspaper Tuesday.

"I have always supported the freedom to choose," Murkowski wrote in her op-ed for the Daily News-Miner, an Alaska newspaper. "I believe that the federal government should not force anyone to buy something they do not wish to buy, in order to avoid being taxed."

In other turkey news, the *resident pardoned two last week, and sentenced swathes of American turnkey farmers to poverty:


The U.S. turkey industry is “still working to recover” from a massive outbreak of bird flu in 2015, which disrupted turkey production at home and had “a radical effect on the export market,” as National Turkey Federation President Joel Brandenberger told me by email. This is particularly true in Mexico, by far the largest customer for American turkey-meat exports. (Since exports have dropped while domestic production has stayed steady, there’s something of a glut in the U.S. market at the moment, which means the turkey you bought this year was probably a bit cheaper than in previous years.)

The damage, moreover, could have been much worse had there been no North American Free Trade Agreement—which encouraged Mexico and Canada, another top destination for U.S. turkey exports, to refrain from banning all U.S. poultry products in response to the outbreak. Instead, America’s NAFTA partners trusted U.S. regulators to ensure that only non-contaminated fowl from unaffected parts of the country were approved for export. (China, which doesn’t have a free-trade deal with the United States, issued a full ban and has yet to lift it, even though the outbreak is over.)

Now the durability of NAFTA is in serious doubt. Negotiations to update the accord, which launched after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to withdraw from it, broke up this week in disagreement over the Trump administration’s efforts to shift the terms of the deal dramatically in America’s favor.

Former Utah congresscritter Jason Chaffetz quit Congress a few months after his 2016 re-election. It suddenly became apparent Fox News was clearcutting its on-air talent in the first wave of sexual harassment scandals, and Chaffetz- a second stringer to the bone- wanted in.




Former congressman and current Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz said Tuesday that he feared some people “will want to take advantage” of the recent wave of reporting on workplace sexual harassment “and throw an allegation.”
On Fox News’ “Outnumbered Overtime,” host Melissa Francis asked Chaffetz if the stories about harassment felt “like a witch hunt.”

“I mean, a lot of men out there are worried that, even if they didn’t do anything, that women are going to come after them,” she said. “Is that a fear that you hear from other men? Do you feel that yourself?”

“Well, I do think it is mostly a gender issue,” Chaffetz replied. “I mean, it does happen against men as well. But, I’ve got to tell you, if you are not acting appropriately in the right setting, you should pay a consequence.”

He continued: “I fear, though, that there will be some people that will want to take advantage and throw an allegation. And then how do you get your reputation back? And so we’ve got to be very, very careful and make sure that it’s well-documented, and you’re going to have people say, ‘Hey, it’s not true.’”

Senator Rand Paul is the only US senator still backing Alabama’s Republican hebephile candidate for the upper house of Congress.


And like Moore, when in a pinch, Paul sends his wife out to defend him.

With all their distractions, conservatives-and their overseas allies- have to tie a string to their fingers to remember to gaybash.


After a transgender woman beat the Virginia House of Delegates’ self-proclaimed Chief Republican Homophobe, the Republicans- clinging to a thread for control of the house- handed out a slap in the guise of acceptance:


Now, the Republican leader there has suddenly decided to do away with gendered titles like “gentlewoman” and “gentleman,” according to The Washington Post.

Following Roem’s win, Virginia House of Delegates House Majority Leader M. Kirkland Cox said that if Republicans continue to control the House then they would do away with the 400-year tradition of gendered titles, a pointed decision considering that conservatives backed the idea, asserting that it could help them avoid an awkward situation.




Milo Yiannopoulos, the #AltRight’s favorite alien gay hebephile, has a new line of insult swag and party money.


No one yet knows who his black huband is.

On the normal side of traditional marriage, twice-divorced Congressman Joe Barton, 68, saw a selfie of his massive belly and hidden willie escape to Twitter, a souvenir of his days cattin’ around.


Now White House credentialed lunatic Alex Jones is courting fame and violation of Texas’ highly moral revngeporn law by posting video of Congressman Barton. When a women says, “please yourself,” apparently he does.

Mrs Trump is, according to Breitbart, the FLOTUS of the People:


First Lady Melania Trump loves to rock a luxury designer coat, though she prefers to simply drape the outerwear over her shoulders.

With her arms free from the sleeves of the coat, Melania transforms what would be a winter-look into an eveningwear ensemble that’s as elegant and fashion-forward as a Dior gown. This is known as “coat-slinging.”

Once a look reserved for fashion insiders and editors, Melania is making coat-slinging the new American silhouette for this winter and early spring. For Melania, coat-slinging serves two purposes.

The first purpose is practicality. Why wear a coat when you can drape it over your shoulders and increase the elegance of your outfit?

The second purpose is asserting her stature as First Lady. By coat-slinging, Melania is able to subtly and stylishly declare her significance in the White House. The draping over of her coats keeps her in a poised, statuesque stance that exudes regality.

Former FBI director James Comey has a Twitter account. He likes posting quotations that beg comparisons.

One of the very good people at Charlottesville.


Twenty-six nations in Europe, covering nearly the whole of the expanse of the German Thousand Year Reich, have banned American Nazi Richard Spencer from setting foot on their father and motherlands for the next five years.


Spencer is perplexed.Members of the Master Race don’t expect to be locked out of the home of White Christian Culture.
