This is what the "Downfall parody" scene looks like with the correct subtitles

Alex Jones, repugnant Trump-troll, does it again

According to Jezebel...

that worthless piece of shit Alex Jones is having a "contest."

If you can appear on local or national television for at least five seconds while wearing a shirt that says, "Bill Clinton is a rapist," you receive $1000. (Oh yeah: you have to wear the official "Infowars" t-shirt to get the money.)
If you can be heard on local or national television saying the same thing, you receive $5000.

Tell me again: Which country is Trump running for president of?

In the country I live in, "jailing your political opponents" is NOT an acceptable campaign pledge.

I think Donald Trump deserves a round of applause

He just put all fifty states in play, and I never believed until a couple days ago we'd ever take Idaho or Utah.

When does early voting begin in your state?

Help your fellow DUer out: Post when early voting opens in your state, so we can vote Democratic before the lines hit.

Idaho: October 24

There's only one response to Trump's Machado tweets

"That's nice, Donnie. Still trying to deflect from your felonies, I see."

The moment Donald Trump lost not only the debate, but the election

Trump: "I've been all over the place. You decided to stay home, and that's okay."

Hillary: "I think Donald just criticized me for preparing for this debate. And yes, I did. And you know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be president. And I think that's a good thing."

Today's Bundy Update: $1000 fine for mentioning LaVoy

http://www.rawstory.com/2016/09/judge-threatens-ammon-bundys-lawyer-with-contempt-for-derailing-conspiracy-trial/

Judge Anna Brown has proven she will not take any crap from the defense in this case.

One of the defense's tactics in this case is to try to pivot into an exploration of the shooting of LaVoy Finicum. Finally, Judge Brown informed Ammon Bundy's lawyer, and later all the lawyers on both sides, that the only things that can be discussed regarding the ventilation of Tarpman are the day he was killed and that he was killed. Go outside that little cage, says the good judge, and she's going to whack the lawyer that did it with a $1000 contempt citation.

They also interviewed the rancher who operates next to the Malheur refuge. He was not happy about going through calf season surrounded by armed sovereign citizens.

The case is on hold until next Monday.

Bundy Trial: Ammon was carrying over $8000 when he was arrested

http://www.oregonlive.com/oregon-standoff/2016/09/ammon_bundy_had_8031_in_cash_o.html

We learned some interesting facts today:

The day before the occupation happened, Ammon bought $471.55 worth of hunting supplies - ammunition, rifle scopes and clothing - from a store in Emmett, Idaho.

The day before he was arrested, he withdrew $6000 from an in-store bank in Nampa, Idaho. (Both are roughly 200 miles from the Malheur reservation.) When the cops picked him up, they discovered $8000 on his person in a white envelope and an additional $31 in his wallet.

The prosecution now believes they can rest next week.

Interesting! The NY bombing suspect is a US citizen

http://heavy.com/news/2016/09/ahmed-khan-rahami-wanted-poster-chelsea-23rd-street-bombing-explosion-suspect-name-photos-facebook-page-terrorist-tannerite/

His name is Ahmad Khan Rahami. He was born in Afghanistan in 1988, moved with his family to the US (it doesn't say when, sorry, but it was quite a while ago because...), and obtained his US citizenship.

Here's what's really interesting to me: in 2002, Rahami, his father Mohammed Sr., and Ahmad's brother Mohammed opened a fried chicken joint styled First American Fried Chicken. (Don't visit their Yelp page if you want to preserve your fading hope for humanity.) In 2011 they filed a federal suit against the city and the cops for "a reckless disregard and deliberate indifference for plaintiff's constitutional rights of liberty, due process and equal protection." The cops' side of the story: the restaurant was a persistent neighborhood nuisance. It stayed open all night and drew "large, loud crowds." The City Council voted to impose a 10pm closing time because the crowds at the restaurant were keeping the neighbors up all night. Naturally, the Rahamis ignored it.

He's also got a rap sheet - obstruction of justice and resisting arrest are his favorite crimes.

He seems to be more a generic American asshole than an international terrorist.
