Actual wall will be built even more bigly

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck affirmed yesterday that the Los Angeles Police Department will give neither aid nor comfort to President-elect Donald Trump's la migra as Trump seeks to deport "two to three million" undocumented residents immediately upon taking office.

Beck's statement is, in fact, a continuation of longstanding department policy not to go up to people and be all HI HELLO ARE YOU A ILL-EAGLE? THEN WE WILL HELP TO DEPORT YOU. This is an overwhelmingly obvious strategy if you want victims of and witnesses to crimes to cooperate with police. If you are not an idiot, at least.

“I don’t intend on doing anything different,” [Beck] said. “We are not going to engage in law enforcement activities solely based on somebody’s immigration status. We are not going to work in conjunction with Homeland Security on deportation efforts. That is not our job, nor will I make it our job.”

The only surprising part of all this is that, apparently, the directive to not fuck with immigrants was first signed by the startlingly racist police chief Daryl Gates, back in the '70s.

Gates's greatest hits included explaining that black people kept dying of chokeholds by his officers because there was something wrong with their carotid arteries (and not because they were being choked all the time), and that the real beating victim in the Rodney King trial was the LAPD.

So ... even that guy understood that it doesn't help cops to turn them into ICE officers.

There's your nice time for today; you might want to savor that one a while.

Yeah, that's my daughter and I made this






First, NASA sent its last message to the Mars Opportunity rover! THEN scientists said that all the insects are dying but not the human-looking ones in the GOP. As if THAT wasn't enough, some brave pendejos with grandes cojones are going to try and get seafloor creatures from under a giant ice shelf in the ANTARCTIC!

So, yeah, all three of those stories happened last month. Let's cover each in a science lightning round.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is terrible at her job. Her objectives and overall mission are evil, but if it's any consolation she can't effectively implement them. After buying her Cabinet position at Sotheby's, DeVos has spent the past two years trying to roll back Obama-era policies designed to protect and actually educate students. Unfortunately for her evil schemes, federal courts keep smacking down her slimy efforts. It's getting embarrassing.

DeVos recently had to cancel $150 million in student loan debt after courts said her attempts to stop the "borrow defense" regulations from taking effect were in fact illegal. Last week, she was forced to instruct colleges to follow the Obama rule barring mandatory arbitration agreements. She got kicked in the teeth earlier this month when a federal judge ruled she'd acted illegally ... again. This time, DeVos tried to delay an Obama-era guideline that required states to address racial disparities in their special education programs. Judge Tanya S. Chutkan called the delay "arbitrary" and "capricious."

The rule, drafted under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, would require states to identify districts with "significant disproportionality" in the number of minority students channeled into special education services, segregated in restrictive classroom settings or disciplined.

OK, so what was the "education" secretary's issue with this rule? We want to imagine there's some rationale we're not seeing and DeVos is more than just some yacht-collecting monster.
