The Nunes Memo, What Is True; What To Believe, An Unbiased Analysis, Consequences of Editing, and Rules of the White House!

The Nunes Memo has come out and of course everyone has taken to it. There are the Republicans who are saying one thing, and the Democrats are saying another. Since most sources are either right or left, it’s really difficult to come to a conclusion on what exactly is true and what isn’t, and what’s being pushed so as to move an agenda along. This Nunes Memo is like the Bible; everyone sees and reads the same words, but all come up with different interpretations to fit their narrative.

First, are there any consequences of sending an edit version of the memo to the White House?

No, there are rules to the White House that must be followed: the committee allows for information to be edited in a document as long as its no new classified information. If you take a look at the PDF, it’s said on page 14-16, within Rule X, Clause 11, Article G, Section 1.

Second, why was Trump allowed to release the memo after five days? 

Because the committee must approve the release and by doing so, it needs to go through the executive branch. If the executive branch wants something to be edited out then it goes back to the committee, and the committee then must tell the president of this new change. It is then, there is a five day release clock.

Third, did the FBI act improperly?

There are four reasons to go by and the sources are in the memo itself. However, there’s no actual evidence that can be sited because of the FISA warrants and request of secrecy, and/or confidentiality has been blocked from public view. Since these FISA documents more than likely won’t be released for a good while, all any one can really do and what they are doing is speculating. Remember:

The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016, Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff, which focuses on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow. This article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News. The Page FISA application incorrectly assesses that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News. Steele has admitted in British court filings that he met with Yahoo News—and several other outlets—in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington DC in 2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS where this matter was discussed. 

Again, we can’t see that FISA application so the only thing we can go on is:

“FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016, Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff, which focuses on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow.”

That’s it. That’s all we have; as you can see, it’s not telling us anything. It just keeps referring to the FISA documents. Personally, until I can read the FISA reports then I’m not going to believe or find anyone else’s interpretation credible.

Rose McGowan Is Accused of Transphobia(Again), Andi Dier Reminds Us That Only Trans Women Are Allowed To Rape!

The big old bathroom debate that the trans movement tries to tell us is that trans women even if they may have penis’, will not harm or sexually assault you. Well, this is what liberals and Democrats will tell you just like Republicans and conservatives will tell you the opposite. So who’s right? They both are. Awe, is it not surprising that maybe both sides of the party may be right on some points at the same when spewing opposite messages? Well either way in October of last year, a trans woman was charged with molesting a ten year old girl in the restroom.

Well, well, well, I’ll keep this short because it’s Saturday, but Rose McGowan was confronted by a trans woman activist at her book signing, Brave. Of course, all the articles are talking about Rose being rude, and spewing hate speech to the trans woman who rudely interrupted her signing, so as to push an agenda. But what no one is talking about, except for the small few, that the trans woman, Andi Dier, who spoke out in Barnes and Nobles apparently has been accused by multiple girls and women. The girls and women came out on Twitter and even in their small towns, saying Andi sexually assaulted them and molested them; some even as young as 13 at their local mall:

Of course, if you say anything about it then the trans-movement, and the LGBT community will label you a TERF. So I can’t help but come to the conclusion that if you’re a man and you commit rape-then bad! But if you’re a trans woman and active in the trans and queer community, and you commit rape-it’s all good. Yeah see, this is why I stepped away from the queer community years ago. Their minds and hearts just aren’t in the same place as mine and ain’t nobody got time for all that! 

Thorgy Thor of Rupaul’s All Stars 3 Was Robbed; AutoStraddle Teaches Queer Ladies How To Give Blow Jobs To Strap-Ons, and Those Damn DACA Kids!

Shout out to r/rupaulsdragrace for this image. Needless to say, I am a drag race fan for the show as well as for the local drag queens we have here in Texas. But good Lord, Thorgy Thor on episode 2 of season 3 of All Stars was robbed. And the worst part about it was it was so blatantly obvious!

The girls were given diva icons for this episode and while everyone was getting entertainers who were very charismatic and energetic, Thorgy got stuck with Stevie Nicks. And Stevie Nicks is like the non-crack head version of Janis Japlin. That’s the best way I can describe her. She was/is apart of Fleetwood Mac. Thorgy was very torn on how she was going to drag out Stevie Nicks for her performance musical with the other girls. Todrick Hall(who I’m starting to view as an asshole) was the dance instructor, and choreographer of this so called musical. Thorgy originally came out as this version of Stevie Nicks:

Of course Todrick gives Thorgy the bitch face. But maybe its just me, but Thorgy’s test run seemed very Mrs. Nicks to me.

So then Bebe comes to practice as Diana Ross and doesn’t do much; I mean, she waves her arm once or twice:

And Todrick says, “That’s great; I love it!” Okay-(although Bebe did give a good overall performance of Diana Ross, I’m starting to think these conspiracy theories are true.)

So Thorgy gives her performance of Stevie Nicks with the other girls within the musical; the judges all have bad words to say about her costume, hair and make-up:

I’m confused, Ru, is this not Mrs. Nicks?

Thorgy’s performance may not have been wow but given her character she was purposely given by Rupaul himself, she did good. That Celine Dion and Janet Jackson performance however……….

For all you queer ladies who like to get kinky, Autostraddle has an article for you: how to give(get) a strap-on blow job? I’m a kinky person, and I think I even wrote something similar about this way back when I first started this blog, but I was surprised to see it on a very popular queer female web site. Let’s read it together, shall we?

“They’re fun! Strap-on blow jobs, where one person wears a harness and a dildo and another person performs oral sex on them, are fun because they’re super queer, subversive, look and feel hot, and can be as much or as little about gender or power play as you want them to be.”

Yeah…okay-sure. I’ll take that reason.

“So many things are hot about strap on blow jobs … The sensation of the dildo against my tender parts, and whatever her hands are doing, and whatever skin her mouth might be kissing. The sight of her tongue, her lips. The imagined sensation of what it might, would, could possibly feel like. The sight of her mouth watering: drool, spit,” says Sinclair Sexsmith.

Role play and gender bending-got it! (Gender bending, that sounds like a new Avatar: The Last Airbender power. “Are you a firebender?” “No, I’m a genderbender?”)

Hmm, I’m currently celibate because I’m single at the moment. By reading this blog, you probably know why. My way of thinking isn’t  the typical way of a homosexual female of color. Anywho, I already done this kinky sex act before though so it’s nothing new. Teach me something new, like how to piss on someone so I can aim to be like R.Kelly(or a nicer version of him in which he doesn’t have a sex cult or a sex tape of him, and an underage girl).

DACA, DACA, DACA, DACA! After something is shoved down my throat so much, I usually stop caring. I did that in college with gay marriage(2008-2012) even though I’m gay. The trans movement, I stopped caring about that. And now DACA. But I will say that those kids seem very entitled to being American citizens. They come off as brats to me, and I kind of have no sympathy for them just like I don’t have sympathy for people who wave the Mexican flag around proudly, yet have no desire to live in Mexico because they know it sucks to be over there. Just like I have no sympathy for the man who was here for 30 years and never once decided to go back to Mexico, and file the proper documents. I have no sympathy for his family either because if they loved him all that much, they could have went right back to Mexico with him. But they know Mexico sucks, so they didn’t. I have no sympathy for people who break the law. I have no sympathy for people who come here illegally, and make it harder for those who are trying to get here legally. No, I don’t care about them. Not only are those people hurting the low income African American community, but also the low income Latin American and Asian Asian communities(yes, I know its hard to believe but Asian Americans can be poor too): 2010, 2016, 2017, 2018. Is it not a coincidence that unemployment is at a low, the lowest it’s ever been right now with strict illegal immigration laws especially for minorities?

Either way, both parties need to come to a conclusion because even though I don’t give a fuck about these illegals, they want to become actual citizens of this country, and they want to contribute to this country. Democrats and Republicans need to come to a compromise and make it happen; they also need to find a way to strengthen economical ties with Mexico. The only way we can stop illegal immigration is if countries and/or businesses are willing to invest in jobs and opportunities in Mexico, promote hour wages of 5-8$ an hour instead of the one-two dollar they have; in other words, their economic status needs to change. Once China started investing in Africa, many countries started to boom! Stop donating, and start investing.

Katie Way Reminds Me Of Why I’m Not A Feminist; Lack of Communication Does Not Equal Sexual Assault/Rape and Women Aren’t Snowflakes!

The video has been out a few days now and in it, Banfield puts Katie Way on check about the ugly e-mail she had sent HLN, which is a very credible news source by the way. Watching this video, re-watching this video, reading the partial email Katie Way sent, and reading the blog post she wrote about the “sexual assault” Ansari did(in this case, did not do), reminds me why I’m not a feminist. If you haven’t read the email, you can read it here in full.

All the feminist I’ve met in real life have either been contradictory, full of crap, and/or hypocritical. Obviously I believe in human rights. I believe in womens’ rights and what the womens’ Suffrage movement did for white women. What the civil rights movement did for black women, and I even appreciate what first and second wave feminism did for all women in western society. But I don’t understand this third wave feminism.

There are many things that I don’t agree with in regards to third wave feminism but what gets me the most is the hypocrisy. I dated this one girl who identified as a feminist, and was pretty hardcore on many of her beliefs. From slut shaming to sexual freedom of women to work promotions, just to name a few things she spoke openly about. Well, when things started to get sexual between us, I didn’t want to perform oral sex on her , and she said to me, “If I do it to you then you should do it to me.” I said, “what?” She said, “it’s only fair. Sex is about fairness.” I said, “No, you should want someone to perform oral sex on you because they want to not because it’s fair, not because it’s an obligation.

Katie Way’s behavior, I’ve seen both on and off line: entitlement. Women are women’s worst enemy. It reminds me of that scene from Mean Girls when Tina Fey’s character said, ‘You girls need to stop calling each other sluts and bitches; it only makes it okay for guys to say it too.

Ladies, lack of communication does not equal rape nor sexual assault. Speaking of Katie Way, we also have her blog post that she wrote up about that woman, and her experience with Aziz. When this #metoo broke out, people who were actually guilty of sexual misconduct were called out as they should be: Weinstien, Spacey and others. But now, every one and their mamma is getting called out for petty reasons.

It’s very important that women come forward but we seriously need to stop going to social media, and the press first and not the cops. People say, ‘oh, women are afraid’. We live in the United States, not Saudi Arabia, not South Africa, not Iraq; we have rights in this country and we shouldn’t be afraid to come forward. I said it before, and I’ll say it again. When you file a complaint, you can remain anonymous, you know. And even if nothing comes from it, at least there’s a record building against that person.

When I was 13, I was kissed by a full grown man! I told my mom that same day on the phone, right after it happened. That man was a friend of my mom’s. My mom called the police and filed a report. Nothing came of it then, but a reputation began to grow on him within the community. Of course like they always do, he repeated his actions on another girl, and woman and even a female cop. The man is now in prison because we filed reports on this man, and they eventually caught up with him. If I or any of these girls, or women kept quiet, he’d still be out doing who knows what.

Yes, I’m lucky that I grew up with a mom who taught me what is appropriate and what isn’t. Yes, I am  lucky to grown up in a community where the cops cared for it’s residents. But women, we should not be afraid to come forward in the year 2018 in the United States of America. We have a voice now so instead of going to Twitter, go to the police and file a proper report. If the police fail you, and ignore you and others, then yes, it’s time to go to the media.

It’s also important to communicate with people. “Oh I wanted white wine and he gave me red.” Bitch, why didn’t you say something then! This is petty. “He asked for sex, I said no…we went to his apartment.” When they got to the apartment, he asked for oral..they did it. Then he said he was going to get a condom. 1.) If you knew he wanted sex, why did you go with him to his apartment? 2.) When you got there, why did you go along with everything?

This victim, didn’t speak up. Men and women aren’t Gods and Goddesses; we can’t read minds. You have to be able to stand up for yourself and speak! Like that feminist girl, ‘you should go down on me because it’s fair.‘ Bitch, no! No is no! But you gotta say it, and not hope they read your body signals, or attempt to read your mind. You gotta be consistent and be strong. If she would have got up and left and said, “no is no, I’m gonna go”. There, problem solved. But she stayed with a man who thought everything was going good, and she went along with it. We gotta do better, y’all. We have programs that help us if we fear for our lives. We have programs for this so you’re not alone and there is help if you’re raped, or sexually assaulted, so do not be afraid to say no!

 

Angele Cooper on 60 Days In Was An University of Texas Track Star, Inspiring Out Actress, and TV Talk Show Host!

Upon watching the newest episode of 60 Days In on A&E TV, I decided to do some research on some of the participates, specifically Angele. I won’t recap the show since not much happened to be honest. In fact, this season is one of the most mellow besides for a few fights in the womens’ pod. Also, a new Mexican chick is in the womens’ pod and Angele has a crush on her. Stephanie is still two faced. Nate is Nate. Matt is going crazy. Andrew is fine.

 

Angele used to be a track star. She ran for the University of Texas and as I mentioned in my last post about her, I kind of figured she was in Austin. The restaurant her and her friends were in, looks like a place I went to often called Michi Ramen. It’s a Japanese food restaurant and it’s so good! Every first date I go on, I often take the woman there or I will suggest we go there. It’s sooooooo good. If you’re in Austin, eat at Michi Ramen!

Nonetheless, Angele was a track star. She attended UT from 2008-2012. She participated in numerous track meets, including the Texas Relays:

She was also an inspiring actress. Angele was suppose to appear in a zombie movie in 2013. The writer of the whole project even set up an indiegogo to get it funded. I wasn’t able to find anything else on the movie project, or much on the writer; so, I don’t think it took off. The movie had a goal of 10,000$ but only managed to raised about 500. Going by her IMDB page, she has been apart of a good number of feature indie films and short films. Angele’s most recent project was Butterfly Caught.

Ms. Cooper also has a Vimeo and Youtube channel, neither have been updated in years. On both channels though, she claims to be an inspiring TV show host.

So this was a fun little post to write and research on before I cover a couple of more serious topics in my future post. Its still too hard to say if Angele is going to be the one who shuts down the whole ordeal because all of the participates except for Nate, Andrew, Allen, and the Mexican dude are either crazy, unstable, manipulative, or emotional. I will say though, this is a pretty boring season so far…

Sex Scenes and Sexual Assault in the Yuri Anime/Manga, Citrus!

In the mist of Trump calling Africa and Haiti shit holes, the yuri, Citrus has been released on streaming sites like Crunchyroll. Citrus is one of the most anticipated animes of this year especially for those who are into shoujo-ai and yuri. Why, you ask? Because not only is the manga filled with such glorious artwork(even though I didn’t read it), it’s also sexually graphic.

When it comes to yuri, the main target audience is males due to the large amount of sex scenes. Upon the anime coming out, many thought the episodes were going to be filled with sex. Even so, the manga has appeared on the New York’s Best Seller’s List five times in the year 2015! Only two episodes have been released so far. You can watch episode one here!

I wasn’t able to find out how many episodes were going to be in this show but more than likely 12-26. With one, to maybe three seasons. I mean the manga was so popular that I’ll be surprised if it only gets one season; however, it has been said that the anime is PG-13. Actually, never mind, it says that there will only be 12 episodes for this season. Also because it’s PG-13 that means the sex scenes are going to get toned down tremendously.

Since I like to watch my anime in binges, I’ll be waiting until the anime is completely through before I watch it. However, I saw the intro and a little bit of episode one, and it’s the typical school girl story like most shoujo-ai, and yuri anime. But there’s already been sexual assault on the main character about two times. She broke up with her boyfriend, so I guess she’s bi. Nonetheless, it’s  a pretty anime, but I’m not one to complain a lot when it comes to anime art style…unless its Megabots.

Trump, Democrats, Republicans, Press, and Daca Streaming Live; Democrats Too Focused on DACA and Not Other Issues Affecting African Americans, and Latin Americans!

Right now before I get started on work, I’m listening to Trump, the Republicans, and Democrats discussing DACA. I was listening to the live streaming from KTSA, which for the most part is a conservative yet accepting radio station. I say accepting because when people hear conservative, they think bigoted, ignorant, racist, and I can say from experience not all are like that. Just like not all liberals are bat shit crazy!

Nonetheless, there may be other places to hear that conference live. I know it was on CNN as well, and there may be an audio recording of it too. I will admit that I don’t care about DACA really. It doesn’t personally concern me, but as a nation, I understand the importance of it. Many of these children, even in many Texas cities, and towns, don’t know that they’re DACA. And many didn’t know they were DACA until they got older and started to do things that required social security numbers, and birth certificates. Like trying to get a driver’s license, applying for college, applying for a job, it was then many found out that they weren’t legal.

From listening to the live streaming of the Republicans, Democrats and Trump, they all want a common ground. They all want to work together to have something. Trump is in full support of DACA if they can also strengthen the border wall, and I agree with that. And a journalist…I think that’s the guy who was talking said, “many of these people on DACA can help with that because some of them know the lingo, know the land“.

But Democrats are focused way too much on illegals than they are for minority Americans. Yes, it is true, African American unemployment is at a low. The unemployment rate for African Americans is 6.6 as of December 2017, and African American women have an unemployment rate of 5.8. Over all, those between 16-19 years of age, it’s 22.9. Yeah that’s not bad compared to other years including 2016.

However, there are still issues facing the African American community such as police brutality that many feel is happening within their communities. Now, I don’t really support Black Lives Matter, but it’s still important to bring forth these concerns and discuss them. Believe it or not, but police brutality and lack of training, and easy dismissal allows for police to behave badly, poorly, and corruptly. These issues aren’t being discussed. We also have strong numbers of black men being sent to prison for minor drug problems such as weed. And what’s worst, a Kentucky law maker is pulling in on this stereotype by claiming blacks respond the worst to drugs because it’s in their genetics. There are numerous other issues: single family homes, lack of education among black men, gang violence. Just last month, a lesbian couple and their kids were killed. And we still have trans women of color who are subjected to violence and death. Last month another black trans woman was found murdered by a construction site. Before her on December 1st, another black trans woman was found dead in an Oklahoma hotel. I may be critical of the trans movement as I am of a lot of movements, but I don’t goat past the facts when it comes to black people and violence.

Latin Americans often face the same problem as African Americans but just like the African American community, the Latin community also sees a low unemployment rate of 4.8 as of September 2017. And as of October 2016, the Hispanic drop out rate in regards to high school is at a low as more and more students are graduating! This is good news. However, let’s not forget that gang violence also control many Hispanic communities in low economics situations. There’s also underage pregnancy.

When I was in middle school, I had classes where there were pregnant girls in my class. Many as young as 12, and they were all Hispanic. Years later, MTV would do that show 16 & Pregnant and I remembered thinking, ‘shit…try doing a show called I’m 14 and On My Second Baby’. It’s difficult to explain why these young Latin American girls get pregnant but it could be because of rape, incest, strict Catholic teachings; whatever it is, the problem isn’t really being discussed.

DACA is important to many but I don’t think they should be the priority; but it could be argued that if they keep getting pushed back then it will never be solved. True, this is why there needs to be better organization and better communication. Like Trump said, if we can work together, we’ll be able to get a lot of shit done.
