David Clarke, he's this guy. Sheriff of Milwaukee. Jerkoff. "Democrat," LOL. Accused of arresting a man for shaking his head at him, he not only didn't deny it, he said he had preempted the "threat" of headshaking, and dude was lucky he hadn't "knocked him out."

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]In addition to being VERY GRRR MANLY, he is also terribly delicate: He went to the Women's March and was TAUNTED. And then he was TAUNTED AGAIN! His reply was a whine that the women wouldn't fight him, and where were the cops when he needed them?

Poor macho snowflake.

Well, over the weekend, there were many (MANY) MASSIVE actions around the country, as "President" Donald Trump's illegal executive order banning permanent US residents from their homes based on nation of origin (which is, again, illegal) was met with whole fuckloads of citizens in the streets. Perhaps you saw some pictures! There was Copley Square in Boston:

And there was Washington DC:

And there was a little but loud one in Denver, where your Editrix and her fam made a surprise appearance, because of how we're still not even back in Montana yet from DC's Women's March, and shit is POPPING UP ALL OVER:

The point is they were EVERYWHERE. So what does Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, who is sworn to uphold and protect the Constitution, think of all this?


Oh. That "Constitution" he's talking about. What's it a "warning label" for? Extreme toxicity? Because the Constitution we've read says,

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]What were people peaceably assembling for, in order to petition the Government for a redress of grievances? An executive order prohibiting the free exercise of religion! So that is like a five-fer, right there!

In fact, and we're sorry to say this, because It Is A Bummer, but despite the mass, MASS outcry, in the streets, regarding that very executive order -- which three individual judges ordered stayed, the executive branch is still not complying.

While they've backed off the ban for permanent residents (green card holders), agents of Customs and Border Patrol are still not permitting detainees to see lawyers, as mandated by the Constitution Clarke says is his "warning label," and the White House is doing its level best to provoke a constitutional crisis by telling judges it won't be complying.

A senior White House official said earlier Sunday that the president had the right and Constitutional power to enact the order. According to the official, the judge's decision changed nothing.

"All stopped visas will remain stopped. All halted admissions will remain halted. All restricted travel will remain prohibited," the official said. "The executive order is a vital action toward strengthening America's borders, and therefore sovereignty. The order remains in place."

With the federal judges' ruling appearing to conflict with the executive order, uncertainty and chaos continued across the nation as lawyers sought access to those detained at airports and reports rolled in that Customs and Border Patrol agents were not abiding by the federal ruling.

Sheriff Clarke can posture all he wants about what he thinks "the Constitution" is (might makes right, presumably). He's wrong, he's small, he's stupid, he's weak, he looks like he smells like too much Axe, he's an embarrassment to the good people of Milwaukee and the rule of law, and he's up for reelection in 2018.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
