Sure Looks Like Sacha Baron Cohen Got A Right-Wing Rally To Do A Racist Sing-Along

The comedian and prankster Sacha Baron Cohen appears to have duped a right-wing group this weekend, leading to a racist sing-along that got some in the crowd chanting lines such as “sushi eaters, what’re we gonna do? Inject them with the Wuhan flu.” Backed by a five-piece band, a man in lumpy overalls and a European accent goaded the Olympia, WA crowd into a call-and-response number. Witnesses suggested the man was Cohen. “Journalists, what’re we gonna do? Chop ’em up like the Saudis do!” he ...

Devin Nunes loses legal battle with fictional cow

U.S. Representaive Devin Nunes (R-Tulare) has lost his legal battle to unmask a fictional cow on Twitter. Though the case made news of Nunes' narcissism, it was months before a judge could bring an end to his thin-skinned legal shenanigans. It was an exercise in censorship, in chilling criticism with the expensive prospect of defending even absurd lawsuits. An interesting wrinkle: as the lawsuit suit named Twitter, its Section 230 immunity to defamation claims was how it rid itself of Nunes. Jud...

Are oaths "absurd" or simply pathetic? Reflections of the Balkin-Green exchange

I am quite excited by the exchange between Jack and Chris Green about the meaning of the oath of fidelity to the Constitution.  This is something that has interested me for a long time.  One of the first things I discussed in my book Constitutional Faith was Barbara Jordan’s famous statement that her “faith in the Constitution is total.”  I genuinely didn’t know whether to find this inspiring or simply intellectual absurd in almost every conceivable way.  (Though one might be reminded of Tertull...

Twins remove ex-owner Griffith statue over racist remarks

MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins on Friday announced they removed a statue of former owner Calvin Griffith at Target Field, citing racist remarks he made in 1978.Griffith's statue was one of several installed when the team opened the ballpark in 2010. Its removal came on Juneteenth, the traditional commemoration of emancipation of enslaved African Americans, and on the same day as a statue of a former Washington Redskins owner was removed from outside the team's old RFK Stadium.“While...

The Marshall Mode EQ earphones are everything you’d expect from the Marshall name

When you hear the brand name Marshall, any music fan instantly conjures a single image: a classic Marshall stack. The amp has been synonymous with live performance since the 60s, with music artists of every stripe lining their stage sets with these thunderous cabinets.  Even when you close your eyes, you can see them. The clean black squares stacked like a wall. Six, eight, 10 across; three, four, even five or more high, each emblazoned with that simple script Marshall logo right in the cente...

The New York Times called the Marshall Stanmore II the best Alexa speaker and now, it’s on sale

We all love home smart speakers like the Amazon Alexa. But as functional as this home assistant can be, it’s got one nearly indisputable flaw. The Alexa speaker itself just isn’t very good. Oh sure, for voice commands or asking questions or trying to order a pizza, the fidelity quality of the Alexa is fine. But once you fire up your favorite music, especially if it’s fueled with heavy bass or demands some serious power, those relatively puny speakers just don’t measure up. When the music yo...

Devin Nunes' Lawyer Tells Judge To Ignore Section 230, Because Twitter Is Anti-Devin Nunes (techdirt)

Twitter and Steven Biss (Devin Nunes' rather busy, but still terrible, lawyer) were in court on Friday to continue Nunes' frivolous SLAPP suit against a satirical internet cow who makes fun of Nunes. The current issue remains Twitter's unwillingness to reveal who is behind the @DevinCow account. Twitter, correctly, continues to point out that it doesn't need to give up the account info, that it's protected from doing so under Section 230, that the Cow has engaged in 1st Amendment protected speec...

Hydroxychloroquine, We Hardly Knew Ye

The hopeful days of hydroxychloroquine as a potentially game-changing coronavirus treatment appear to be over. On Monday, the Food and Drug Administration withdrew an emergency authorization that had allowed the government to funnel the drug to coronavirus patients across the country, despite little evidence showing that it worked against COVID-19. It is “no longer reasonable to believe” that hydroxychloroquine pills may be effective in treating the virus, nor that the known and potential ben...

Simone Biles, survivors ask court to force USOPC to provide answers in Larry Nassar cases

Simone Biles won four gold medals at the 2016 Olympic Games with a performance that defied both gravity and human imagination. She captured the hearts of millions, the attention of Madison Avenue, and established herself as the rightful heir to retiring Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt as the face of Olympic sports. Biles stood on the top step of the medal podium in Rio de Janeiro four times, gold medal around her neck, hand over her heart as the American flag was raised and the national anthem play...

The Law Reviews and Reconstruction: An Overly Optimistic World? (Part II)

My article “Optimistic Originalism and the Reconstruction Amendments” engages with two distinct bodies of scholarship – law review commentary on the Reconstruction amendments and recent accounts of the Civil War and Reconstruction by historians.   In my last post, I discussed how to define the gap between how originalists and historians approach the past, especially in light of Heller and Jack Balkin’s Living Originalism.   In this post, I broaden my focus to reflect on legal scholarship on...

Hear Enchanting Mixes of Japanese Pop, Jazz, Funk, Disco, Soul, and R&B from the 70s and 80s

Franz Kafka’s unfinished first novel, published by his literary executor Max Brod as Amerika, tells the story of a young European exiled in New York City. He has a series of madcap adventures, winds up in Oklahoma as a “technical worker,” and adopts the name “Negro.” Amerika is a novel written by an artist who had never been to America or met an American. His impression of the country came entirely from his reading. And yet, Kafka leaves readers with an authentically vivid, lasting impre...

This botanical garden in Corona del Mar is one for your bucket list

If there is a bucket list for gardeners, I can think of two places – one local and one far away – that should be on it. The local one is Sherman Library & Gardens in Corona del Mar, and the far-away place is the Jardin Botanico on the Canary Island of Tenerife, located 200 miles off the northwest coast of Africa. However, you do not have to travel halfway around the world for a glimpse of the spectacular native flora of Tenerife, as it is admirably represented by one of its signature species in ...

Why a documentary maker spent years filming Mexican culinary expert Diana Kennedy

There’s a point in the new documentary on Mexican food expert Diana Kennedy during which she snaps at students attending a boot camp held at her eight-acre ranch outside Zitácuaro, Michoacán. “Read my books and learn, please! What are you going to do when I’m gone? Who else is going to start screaming? Nobody!” A James Beard Award nominee, “Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy” is the first feature by documentary filmmaker Elizabeth Carroll and she’s picked a doozy of a subject. Investigators are on...

Here’s your Father’s Day Gift you better choose wisely

Father’s Day is June 21st, otherwise known as the roughest shopping day of the year. Don’t get us wrong, Dad deserves an awesome gift for all the great things he gave you. But let’s be honest — buying for your father is often a chore.  Your gift has to take into account what he already has, what he wants, what he’ll use, and what will actually elicit a smile. And if it also sends the message that he was a pretty great Dad and you feel lucky to have him...well, that’s bonus points. To help s...

Protesters Have Been Really Successful At Getting Statues With Racist History Removed

In a side effect of the nationwide unrest over the killing of George Floyd, protesters have effectively forced the removal of multiple statues memorializing a racist past.  They’ve homed in on Confederate iconography in particular.  In Birmingham, Alabama, the Confederate Sailors and Soldiers Monument that has stood in the city for over a century has been taken down.  Protesters had already vandalized it and were threatening to tear it down themselves, when they were quelled by the Bir...

With Pompeo out, GOP looks to Rep. Marshall in Kansas race

The passing of Monday's deadline to file to run for Kansas' open Senate seat confirmed that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo won't be a candidate, and a major anti-abortion group threw its support behind Rep. Roger Marshall to keep immigration hardliner Kris Kobach from the GOP nomination. Republican leaders had not expected Pompeo to give up his post as the nation's top diplomat to seek the seat being vacated by retiring four-term Republican Sen. Pat Roberts.
