The Hill: Chrome Extension Scrubs Trump From The Web

Just a helpful technology tip from yer old pal, Rudi!

Encouraging technological news via the politically ambiguous TheHill.Com. Tired of the "saturation reporting" on The Donald from everyone from the NY Tims to the Cartoon Network?  We have an encouraging story, peeps.  Here's the lede:
Americans tired of the media fixation on real estate mogul and presidential candidate Donald Trump have a new tool at their disposal, courtesy of a Brooklyn web developer.
The Trump Filter extension for Chrome, created by Rob Spectre and spotted by US News this week, will remove content on the web related to the Republican front-runner's candidacy. It includes three levels of sensitivity: “mild,” “aggressive,” and “vindictive.”
The extension, which was released last week, detected Trump-related headlines on a range of news sites and removed them when tested by The Hill. It also eliminated some non-Trump related content while on the "aggressive" setting.
Read up!

For Republicans, Bigotry is the New Normal

Check your party registration, Sane Utah Republicans

Top-notch Wapo OpEd, submitted for re-publication via long-time WCF reader/contributor Ozboy.  "An interesting editorial in today's Washington Post, about Republican perfidy.  Might make a good piece for the WCF," the ever politically savvy Ozboy sez, in a rare instance of understatement.  Wethinks Ozboy doth not steer us wrong however. Check it out, folks:
Added bonus:  Ozboy also submits this additional gem for your consideration, folks:
Media Matters "nails it" in summary, wethinks:
Fear-mongering and raw xenophobia were once the hallmarks of fringe candidates. Today the fringe candidates have stormed center stage, brandishing their zeal and hyperbole and, disturbingly, dragging the mainstream along with them.
Check your party registration, Gentle Utah Republicans, now that the American GOP has become the official party of fascism and hatred.

Salt Lake Tribune: Republicans OK $14M Land-transfer Lawsuit, Say Utah Must Regain "Sovereignty."

Legal team urges Utah to go to court, estimating the cost at a mere $14 million.

Following up on our previous discussions in re this topic, The Salt Lake Tribune carries a story this morning reporting the latest development in Rep. Ken Ivory's American Lands Council Land-grab.

Here's the lede, Peeps:
The federal government has no constitutional authority to permanently retain millions of acres in Western states, latecomers to the federal union that have thus been relegated to "second-class" status instead of sovereigns on equal footing with the older states to the east of the 100th meridian.
That's the conclusion of a 145-page legal analysis submitted Wednesday to the Utah Legislature by a team of outside lawyers hired to weigh Utah's legal prospects in its public lands fight with the federal government. The team urged Utah to go to court, estimating the cost at $14 million. [Emphasis Added.]
"We are a federal republic. The central government is run by the states. The members of the republic, the states, must be equal in power and sovereignty," New Orleans lawyer George Wentz told the legislative panel that commissioned the report at a cost of $500,000. Utah has been denied the promise of full sovereignty by federal policies that thwarted the "disposal" of public land, according to Wentz and his colleagues.
Citing the consultants' conclusions, the Utah Commission for the Stewardship of Public Lands on Wednesday voted to direct them to prepare a complaint asserting a claim to 31 million acres of public land. It would be left up to Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes to decide whether such a case would be filed, mostly likely as a petition for original jurisdiction before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Read up, Peeps:
Just like clockwork, Pat Bagley nails it, no? Hold onto your wallets, O Gentle (and Ever-docile) Utah Taxpayers.

Screw These Fascist Republicans!

Screw these fascist Rebublicans!
"I personally, I have to say this honestly, have a hard time understanding how anyone could vote for tax breaks for billionaires, for millionaires, for large corporations and then say we don't have the resources to protect our veterans," said Senator Sanders, the measure's chief author."
Fascists should make you sick, eh, my fellow Americans?
