Micheal Moore Just Unleashed An Army On Trump’s Social Media
Author: Joe Fletcher December 12, 2015 2:01 pm

People are starting to get fed up with Donald Trump’s hate speech. Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is so angry about Trump’s seemingly endless diatribe against the marginalized people of the world that he has started recruiting an army of Facebook users to get the Republican presidential primary front runner’s posts taken down from the...

A Canadian transgender father left behind a wife and seven children to begin a new life as a six-year-old girl.

Stefonknee (pronounced ‘Stephanie’) Wolschtt, 46, had been married for 23 years when she realised she was transgender.

She's now living with an adoptive family, and says she does not “want to be an adult right now”.

“I can’t deny I was married. I can’t deny I have children. But I’ve moved forward now and I’ve gone back to being a child,” she said in a video series by The Transgender Project, published by Daily Xtra.

Ms Wolschtt said her wife could not accept her as a transgender woman. She was told to either “stop being trans or leave”.

“To me, ‘stop being trans’ isn’t something I could do,” she says. “It would be like telling me to stop being 6ft 2 or leave.”

Feeling rejected by her family, Ms Wolschtt left and now lives with her adoptive family, who she says are “totally comfortable with me being a little girl”.

She explains how her new parents’ youngest granddaughter wanted a little sister and decided Ms Wolschtt should be younger than her.

“We have a great time. We colour, we do kid’s stuff,” she says.

“It’s called play therapy. No medication, no suicide thoughts. And I just get to play.”

Negotiations went down to the line, but 195 countries have now committed themselves to limit emissions.

Scientific consensus is that the current agreement will only accomplish half of greenhouse gas emissions cuts necessary to prevent a catastrophe.

What's remarkable about the deal is that developing nations have also signed on to the cuts.

It's a good day to own clean energy stock.

At what point is it catastrophe? How much damage needs to be done? Because it's already impossible to stop the submerging of some island nations, and I imagine it's already too late to stop some damage to the food chain.

Also, fuck India and their insistence they're allowed to massively increase greenhouse gas output just because other countries did in the past. At least they'll be some of the worst hit from the fallout.

France's far-right National Front (FN) has failed to win a single region in the second round of municipal polls.

The party was beaten into third place, despite leading in six of 13 regions in the first round of voting a week ago.

The centre-right Republicans finished ahead of President Francois Hollande's governing Socialist Party.

FN leader Marine Le Pen said that mainstream parties had colluded to keep it from power and vowed to keep on fighting.

Thanks to France's use of runoff elections, I don't think there's any chance for FN to have significant power. There's no way they're ever going to get a clear majority of voters, and they're controversial enough that if people see that they might win major elections, they'll actually vote to make sure that doesn't happen.

Oh, I'm not saying it's necessarily common sense, and they definitely don't have the crisis necessary to gain support for their extreme positions. But the election system makes it hard for them to win any election, even despite gaining popularity. Though it probably makes any initial gain in voters easier because people aren't as worried about voting for fringe parties in the initial election. I just can't see enough people swinging to FN unless the Republicans massively fucked up, but even then...

A Greek Orthodox Metropolitan of the Church of Greece is under fire for comments he posted publicly on his blog, lashing out against gays, muslims, jews and atheists. In an angry rant he encouraged his readers and followers to “spit on them” and “blacken them” with violence, stating that they are not humans.

Ambrosios is the Metropolitan of Kalavryta and Aigialeia— a region in north central Peloponnese and ranks as the 8th in order of hierarchy and influence in the Church’s synod, or governing body. Numerous politicians, media and public figures have called...

France is waging war against wasting food. Supermarkets, restaurants, and individuals are all being targeted in order to try to reduce how much food is thrown away each year.

Two different problems here.
1) I don't understand at all why giving away unsold food is not already an obligation (if still consumable), let alone forbidden.
2) The water included in 1kg of beef is certainly not "wasted". The whole "litters in ..." measure was created as an index for studying water scarcity on a global scale, not water use. Even though producing meat requires very large quantity of water, you wouldn't say rain or river water to be wasted if not utilized; you just cannot...

The smiling, head-bobbing, saluting women of the Moranbong Band possess all the hallmarks of your typical K-pop group. Clad in mini-skirts and high heels, they perform under flashing lights on dramatic, larger-than-life sets. They infuse Western pop flavor with a Korean twist.

But the Moranbong ladies have a special honor that has been bestowed on none of the world’s most recognizable K-pop sensations, from Big Bang to Girls’ Generation. They exist in their own league, really, having each been hand-picked by North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong-un.

Iraqi Army and Sunni Tribal fighters with Coalition air-cover are in the process of taking Ramadi back for the IS Group.

The offensive has been going for a few days and it will continue for some time, but Daesh is running scared from the A-10 Warthogs and moral is high.

I remember first seeing them in articles about Syria a few years ago. They're more of a mortar than a rocket. They are shit accurate, but they can be filled with shrapnel.

In addition to these anti-personnel projectiles one of the current Daesh favorites is a highly armored kamakazi truck. They often come in groups and are able to plow through checkpoints and into specific targets like a poor man's precision guided bomb.

On Friday, December 11, a fight broke out on the floor of the Ukrainian parliament. Oleg Barna, a deputy in President Poroshenko's bloc approached the speaker's podium, where Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk was delivering an address. Handing him a bouquet of roses, Barna started shoving Yatsenyuk, then tried to carry him away, even grabbing him between the legs and lifting him into the air. Immediately, several other deputies intervened and a mass brawl began. Neither Yatsenyuk nor his roses took part.

Barna was responding to Yatsenyuk telling members of Poroshenko's...
