Racist Rep. Steve King compares losing House assignments to what Jesus Christ went through

Iowa Rep. Steve King was finally stripped of his House committee assignments after one white nationalism-promoting remark too many. Republican leadership had long turned a blind eye to King's promotion of European far-right radicals, his repeated defenses of white supremacist rhetoric, and the rest of his racist obsessions, but were finally motivated to take action after Republicans were plastered, nationwide, in midterm elections by voters contemptuous of the party's new dalliances with such extremism. Steve King is not, however, remorseful. He considers himself the Jesus Christ of white nationalist toads, or so he intimated to constituents at an Iowa town hall. «And, when I have to step down to the floor of the House of Representatives, and look up at those 400-and-some accusers, you know we just passed through Easter and Christ's passion, and I have better insight into what He went through for us partly because of that experience.» Hmm. Just ... hmm.

Once upon a time, William Barr was extremely offended by spin, stonewalling, and personal attacks

William Barr is deeply concerned about people who make attacks against Robert Mueller and intends to defend him vigorously against people who defame his office, his team, or his conclusions. Or at least, you might expect so, considering how Barr responded in 1998 when he was asked about independent counsel Kenneth Starr. As CNN reports, back then Barr was seriously “disturbed« that people were denigrating Starr’s investigation and his actions that led to the impeachment of Bill Clinton. Barr was particularly angry that then-Attorney General Janet Reno wasn’t standing up to protect Starr from from »spin control,« »hatchet jobs« and »ad hominem attacks.« Such as, for example, attacks that called the investigation “a witch hunt,” described the investigation team as “bad cops,” and called Mueller “angry” or “crazy” or “biased” or “conflicted.” Obviously, these things no longer bother Barr—or certainly don’t bother him enough for him to raise so much as a peep when the spin, hatchets, and ad hominem are flying from the office of his boss. But it wasn’t just that Barr didn’t want people badmouthing Starr. The once and future attorney general was concerned that by not sticking up for the independent counsel against attacks from those critical of his work, Reno was allowing the White House to “have the improper purpose of influencing and impeding an ongoing criminal investigation and intimidating possible jurors, witnesses and even investigators.» Barr expressed no such concerns either before or after Mueller handed in his report, and he’s also made no objection to White House efforts to block further investigation by the House or Senate. It would be easy to think that the 1998 Barr who said, “The whole system should be geared to getting the truth. But it has been geared to stonewalling and spinning what people think'' was a vastly different man than the Barr who has been the chief purveyor of spin in support of Donald Trump. If that 1998 Barr had not already demonstrated his ability to spin like a top when it came to protecting Republicans. Barr’s crocodile tears about “the truth” were play-acting then. They’re just embarrassing now.

A Retired Bike-Share Bicycle Upcycled to a Beetle-Shaped Mobile Library

Seeking to provide a new use for China’s enormous surplus of bike-share bicycles, LUO Studio recently designed a mobile library in the shape of a winged beetle. The studio’s founder Luo Yujie was inspired to create “Shared Lady Beetle” by a friend who teaches young children and often needs to educational supplies around. In a statement on the studio’s website the Shared Lady Beetle is envisioned as a “beneficial insect walking on the urban leaf.” To create the mobile library, LUO Studio equipped a standard bicycle with two back wheels and an additional load-bearing wheel to accommodate the extra length of the design.
