Pikupikun = “Japan’s Hottest Mangaka”

Author: Artefact

 

Ero-mangaka, visual-kei poseur and former host Pikupikun has been hailed as Japan’s hottest mangaka, and, perhaps unsurprisingly given his current and former line of work, also one of its most perverse…

The extensive photographic record of his antics he publishes online needs little explanation

This is a huge gallery post so nothing from me will be posted here.

 

Anyway, let’s get the news of the west over and done with.

 

Palin Endorses Trump Debate, Urges Candidates to Join

By Henry J. Reske

Sarah Palin is urging Republican presidential candidates to take part in the Newsmax ION Television 2012 Presidential Debate moderated by Donald Trump.

The former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate made her endorsement in an interview that aired Wednesday night on the Fox Business Network. Palin’s endorsement is the latest high-profile conservative to support the debate set for Dec. 27.

“I think candidates should not be afraid in front of the nation no matter who the host of the debate is,” Palin said. “What is a bit appealing about this idea of Trump hosting a debate is, consider the diverse audience that perhaps he can attract. It’s important that independents and those who are not obsessed with inside-baseball partisan politics, which is most of us, we’d like to hear more of the message of each one of these candidates and perhaps Donald Trump will be able to attract a diverse demographic that maybe has not been as interested in this horse race thus far.

“America needs to wake up to what is going on under Obama’s socialist policies and how he will bankrupt the country. I’m looking at the debate as a positive thing because of that fact.”

Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition is on board, along with Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), and the American Conservative Union (ACU), chaired by Al Cardenas, which sponsors the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. ATR and ACU are sponsors for the debate.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum have confirmed their participation.

Palin also said former Govs. Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman were wrong to turn down the debate and urged them to change their minds and join the debate, Huffington Post reported.

Palin said she would not be endorsing any candidate “before Iowa,” referring to the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3. But the former governor, who waited until October to announce she would not be a candidate in the 2012 race, also told Fox Business Network that Gingrich has “been a bit more successful” than Mitt Romney in courting party activists.

“He has been engaged in that movement most recently in order for them to hear his solutions and there’s been some forgiveness then on the part of Tea Party Patriots for some of the things in Gingrich’s past,” she said, according to an advance transcript of the interview provided by the network. “Romney and others need to reach out and convince Tea Party Patriots and constitutional conservatives that he truly believes in smaller, smarter government.”

Gingrich, she acknowledged, can’t sell himself as an outsider. But she said that during his time in Washington “some of the things he’s done have been good.”

“He helped balance the budget under Bill Clinton. That is what we need today,” she said.

Palin and Trump, 2 of America’s most notorious ne’er-do-wells as well ass as well as the biggest fags in the US have indeed proven to us that with money and stupid anything is possible.


It’s Time to Nuke Senate Republicans

Author: Scott Nance

There’s been much talk in recent years in the U.S. Senate of “going nuclear,” or of triggering a “nuclear option.” Well, it’s time. No, make that well past time, for President Obama to go nuclear on Senate Republicans. The Senate GOP has steadily ratcheted up its obstruction of very nearly everything to come through the chamber. Not only have they been blocking needed extensions of payroll tax cuts for middle class workers and unemployment benefits for jobless Americans, just this week, Republicans filibustered both an Obama nominee for a federal appeals court as well as the president’s appointee to head up a new financial consumer protection agency.

Soon after Republicans filibustered Richard Cordray as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Thursday, the president came out once again to issue another sternly worded complaint about the Republicans’ behavior. The Republicans, the president protested, were not “on the level” by blocking Cordray, a former state attorney general from Ohio. Obama is entirely right, of course, but that doesn’t matter.

The problem is that not only do such presidential scoldings fail to scare Republican senators, they lap them up. Watching Obama moan only emboldens his adversaries to do more to frustrate him, not less. The president promised not to give up on the Cordray nomination, and to take nothing off the table to make it happen. That was supposed to be a veiled threat to circumvent the senators once they leave town by putting Cordray in office through a recess appointment.

The problem is that that is an empty threat. Republicans know how to, in reality, go out on recess while technically keeping the Senate in session. They did it this past summer, specifically to block any recess appointments. They did it once, and will only likely do it again. That means that if he truly is serious about not taking anything off the table, Obama must find some other, sharper stick with which to politically club Republicans into submission.

The president must find something that his opponents truly do care about, some projects back home, some funding for this or that, something, and put his administration in the middle to stop it from happening. Obama must stand up to the GOP bullies, not only with words, but deeds that will make them take notice.

At the very least, the president’s friends across town at the Democratic National Committee need to start writing some checks to pay for some negative ads against those Republican senators most vulnerable to persuasion. These likely would be those Republicans from blue states who have supported the filibusters, including Sen. Mark Kirk, who now holds Obama’s old Illinois Senate seat. These ads, frankly, need to attack the Republican obstructionists in fairly harsh, emotionally driven ways. Then these ads need to be aired long enough, and with enough repetition, that they actually start to move the needle and drive down the senators’ approval ratings. Perhaps if these senators begin to be palpably hated in their own home states, they’ll be a little less quick to jump to a filibuster.

No, it’s not nice or kind, but then, going nuclear seldom is.

Seriously is it just me or do Republicans cause a massive amount of drama. I mean seriously, ever since Indecision 2012 began with the straw poll, it’s been nothing but drama and mudslinging.


Suspect Identified in Virginia Tech Shooting

By ARIAN CAMPO-FLORES, TIMOTHY W. MARTIN and CAMERON MCWHIRTER

Authorities on Friday identified the suspect in the slaying of a Virginia Tech police officer as a 22-year-old part-time college student at nearby Radford University.

Police said Ross Truett Ashley, of Partlow, Va., killed Virginia Tech police officer Deriek W. Crouse Thursday before committing suicide.

State police said investigators were continuing to try to establish a motive and to re-create Mr. Ashley’s movements in the days and hours leading up to the murder-suicide on the Blacksburg, Va., campus.

Police also said Mr. Ashley stole a car on Wednesday from a real-estate office in Radford, which is about 15 miles from Virginia Tech. Mr. Ashley was a business management major, according to a statement by Radford University

The Thursday shooting was the first such incident at the Blacksburg, Va., campus since 2007, when student Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people before taking his own life in the deadliest incident of campus violence in U.S. history.

Mr. Crouse, a 39-year-old father of five who joined the campus police force about six months after the 2007 massacre, was killed shortly after noon Thursday when Mr. Ashley walked up to the officer as he was making a traffic stop and fired a handgun, according to state police. Mr. Crouse was in his patrol car when he was shot.

Mr. Ashley then fled to an area of greenhouses on campus, where authorities believe he removed a pullover top and cap and changed into different clothes he had in a backpack, state police said.

Authorities reviewed in-car video from Mr. Crouse’s patrol car, which captured an armed man moving toward the car, according to a state police news release. The clothes worn by the man in the video were similar to those found in the retrieved backpack, the release stated. Police found the backpack near the greenhouses.

About a half-hour after the shooting, a Montgomery County sheriff’s deputy noticed a man “acting strangely” and moving furtively in a parking lot near the greenhouses, state police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said at a news conference earlier Friday. When the deputy drove up to the man, he was lying on the ground, fatally wounded by what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot, according to Ms. Geller. A handgun was found nearby.

Ballistics-evidence testing found that the officer and the man in the parking lot were shot with the same weapon, she said.

Associated PressLocal S.W.A.T. team members congregate near a parking lot on the campus of Virginia Tech on Thursday.

In the wake of the 2007 killings, administrators at the school—which is formally known as Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University—were criticized for taking too long to warn students that shootings had occurred on campus. Thursday, the campus quickly locked down and students were provided numerous alerts via computer and cellphone.

Many of Virginia Tech’s 30,000 students spent Friday studying for final exams that were canceled for the day in the wake of the violence Thursday.

Most of the campus was empty. Only at the Drillfield—where a semicircle memorial for the April 16, 2007 victims stands at the heart of the campus—did a trickle of people flow in and out through the blustery day, said Mark Owczarski, a Virginia Tech spokesman. “The campus is very quiet,” he said.

That’s all the news for today, here’s hoping there’s more drama from the republican side.
