Re: Florida school shooting: Armed officer "Did Not Confront the Shooter"

This is scapegoating.

First off, the cops are trained to wait for backup before going in to a shooting situation.  That's the protocol.

Second, while he had a handgun, the shooter had an AR-15.  He would likely have ended up dead.

Third, did he have Body Armor?

This belief that one "Good Guy Hero" with a pistol can drop in and stop a shooter who is armed to the teeth is just ridiculous.  It comes from watching too many Bruce Willis movies.

I agree. Definitely a scapegoating thing. They were going to suspend him but he just quit instead.

Because he didn't pull out his handgun and take down a better armed shooter...in four fucking minutes, which is the timeline here. I'm sure he feels bad enough without stupid people pointing the finger...but you can't blame him, really. If it's going to be legal for suicidal/homicidal maniacs to carry semi-auto rifles with 30 round clips, they should give the school cops Uzis and riot shotguns at least.

Monica Lewinsky: Clinton affair a gross abuse of power

Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern who had an affair with former president Bill Clinton, has said their relationship constituted a "gross abuse of power" on his part.

Ms Lewinsky was 22 when she became romantically involved with the then president, who was 27 years her senior.

She has written an article for Vanity Fair magazine, reflecting on events after the #MeToo movement.

She also revealed that she was diagnosed with PTSD after the scandal.


The condition was caused by being "publicly outed and ostracised" as the affair unravelled in the press and courts, she says.

News of their relationship dominated the US news agenda in 1998 and 1999, after the president initially denied it before admitting to "inappropriate intimate physical contact" with the former White House intern.

House Republicans then started impeachment proceedings against the president, arguing he had lied to federal investigators. That effort eventually failed, and Mr Clinton remained in power until 2002.

In the magazine piece, Ms Lewinsky, now 44, says she stands by her 2014 comments that their relationship was consensual, but muses about the "vast power differentials" that existed between the two.

Ms Lewinsky says she had "limited understanding of the consequences" at the time, and regrets the affair daily.

"The dictionary definition of "consent"? To give permission for something to happen," she wrote.

"And yet what did the 'something' mean in this instance, given the power dynamics, his position, and my age?...He was my boss. He was the most powerful man on the planet. He was 27 years my senior, with enough life experience to know better."

Since re-emerging into the public eye in 2014, Ms Lewinsky has regularly spoken out publicly against cyberbullying, calling herself "patient zero" of the internet trend.
#MeToo movement

In the Vanity Fair essay, she also discusses the growing movement of women publicly speaking out against sexual harassment and assault.

She writes that she was moved to tears after being contacted by one of the leaders of the #MeToo movement, who expressed sympathy that Ms Lewinsky was "so alone" during the affair.

"Isolation is such a powerful tool to the subjugator. And yet I don't believe I would have felt so isolated had it all happened today," she writes.

"There are even some people who feel my White House experiences don't have a place in this movement, as what transpired between Bill Clinton and myself was not sexual assault, although we now recognise that it constituted a gross abuse of power."

Shame it wasn't Donald Trump instead of Slick Willie Monica. The Liberals would still be weeping over what happened to you. :-\

Well, here lately Lewinsky is making a career out her misfortune. Speaking a lot, getting some mileage out of the #MeToo crowd. She seems to be in demand.

I think Clinton used her like he used a lot of other women, before, and probably since, and I don't condone what he did. I think he's a classic sex addict. But she was at least slightly complicit in what happened.

Re: Golden Oxen's News - Alert! Putin Announces New Nuclear Weapons
« Reply #1297 on: March 01, 2018, 03:27:16 AM »
Russia has developed missiles no other country possesses, says Putin

                                       

MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that Moscow would regard a nuclear attack on its allies as a nuclear attack on Russia itself and would immediately respond.

Putin said that Russia had tested an array of new nuclear weapons, including a new nuclear-powered missile at the end of 2017 which could reach almost any point in the world and could not be intercepted by anti-missile systems.

"We would consider any use of nuclear weapons against Russia or its allies to be a nuclear attack on our country. The response would be immediate," Putin said in a speech to Russian lawmakers.  :-\

Putin reveals new Russian missile that can 'reach any point in the world'

Russian President Vladimir Putin revealed a slew of new defense systems Thursday, including a new prototype missile that "can reach any point in the world" and a supersonic weapon which cannot be tracked by anti-missile systems.

Delivering his annual State of the Union address, Putin announced increased capabilities in the defense sector, saying that Russia "should not forget about security," following a speech that had initially focused on domestic issues. Putin also said that, if attacked, Russia was ready to use nuclear weapons.

"We see increased opportunities with the armed forces," he said. "We've done a lot to strengthen our army and navy and they are equipped with modern weaponry."

He showed the audience a video of how one of the prototype missiles would work, explaining that the new system would have no limitation on range. "It can attack any target, through the North or South Pole, it is a powerful weapon and no missile defense system will be able to withstand," the president said.

Telling the audience that more was to come, Putin also said Russia had another weapon that was a "small nuclear power energy system" — a nuclear warhead — that can be deployed on a cruise missile system that can also, he claimed, "avoid all interceptors."     :cwmddd:

He said the country had tested this cruise missile with the "nuclear power energy unit" in 2017 and it was successful. Russia would start manufacturing this now, he added.

"This is unheard of and nobody else has such a system in the world. They might create something like this in the future but by then our guys will have created something new as well."

Putin joked that the two new strategic nuclear weapons he described — the global cruise missile and the subsurface unmanned vehicle — did not have names yet and lawmakers could submit their suggestions via the Defense Ministry website.
300 new models of weaponry

Speaking more generally about the new developments, he said Russia had adopted 300 new models of weaponry providing the armed forces with 18 new ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles), two submarine-based ballistic missiles. He added that the country had commissioned three new nuclear submarines also increased the number of its high-precision long-range missiles.

"After the U.S. withdrew from the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) treaty we've been working hard to develop new promising weaponry systems and this enabled us to make a big step forward creating new strategic arms … U.S. global missile systems are mainly against ballistic missiles and these are the core of our nuclear deterrent. This is why Russia has been developing extremely effective systems to defeat missile defense and all our ICBMs are equipped with such systems now," he said.

"Also we have developed a new generation of missiles, namely, (we) are testing a new missile system that uses a heavy ICBM."
Underwater drones

He also said Russia is developing new underwater drones that can carry nuclear warheads. These were described as un-manned, noiseless submarines that move at ultra-deep levels and at high speed. "This is just fantastic," Putin said.   :'(

"There is no defense system that can cope with such subsurface vehicles that can be equipped with conventional or nuclear weapons, attacking coastal defenses and infrastructure facilities." These underwater drones were 100 times smaller than a conventional submarine, Putin noted.

The State of the Union address is the last one that Putin will make before a president election on March 18. Putin is expected to win the election comfortably and enter a fourth term of leadership.
