Ana Navarro Rips Into Trump's 'Disgusting' Speech

Republican strategist Ana Navarro seems to have had her fill of ‘Trumpism’.

Source: This Week

Never mind the message of making America “one again” — conservatives were drastically split following Donald Trump’s acceptance of the Republican nomination Thursday night. On CNN, things ignited when Ana Navarro stood up to Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

“I’m embarrassed of my party. He sounded like a fearmonger. This is not Republicanism,” Navarro said.

“Wow. Wow,” Lord said over her, shaking his head.

Magic Tournament Rules Release Notes
Scott shares the quarterly updates to the Magic Tournament Rules.

Some changes are happening to the tournament rules. Most of them are the usual updates and templating fixes, but the big points are as follows:

  • Grand Prix Trials are now run at Regular REL. They still require a certified (Level 1 or higher) judge, but whether or not decklists are required is at the discretion of the judge and tournament organizer. Since they are now run at Regular REL, they’re run under the Judging at Regular REL document and not the Infraction Procedure Guide, meaning that tracked penalties generally won’t be a thing at GPTs anymore.
  • Players are now required to sort cards during pool registration for limited events.
  • Players can no longer look at an opponent’s sideboard for any reason if they’re controlling that player.

I’m happy to see that the changes to tournament policy are going to be shared more openly, and I’ll do my best to share these articles with you here when they’re released.

Hillary Clinton Picks Tim Kaine As Her VP Choice
External image

The New York Times is reporting that Virginia Senator Tim Kaine has won the vice presidential sweepstakes and will be her running mate for the 2016 general election.

In the end, Mrs. Clinton decided Mr. Kaine, 58, a former governor of Virginia who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and speaks fluent Spanish, had the qualifications and background and the personal chemistry with her to make the ticket a success.

Sen. Kaine has been the odds on favorite for some time.

As you know I’m a huge Elizabeth Warren fan and supporter, but I’ve tweeted many time saying that she’ll better serve the progressive movement in Congress rather than be on the ticket.

I’m too exhausted from this week to say much more.

Ridiculously Stereotypical Memes Reveal How Different People Take Showers

http://thePlunder.com/ridiculously-stereotypical-memes-reveal-how-different-people-take-showers/

A few years ago, a Viner named Arthur made a short funny video about how British people shower. Playing on the stereotype that most Brits can’t do anything without a good old cup of tea, Arthur showed himself showering with a box of teabags. Because that’s what British people do in the shower. Obviously.

Well, now other people around the world have decided to share their showering habits in a series of hilarious memes. No stereotype is left uncovered as different people bring you the best – or possibly the worst – of cultural clichés.

Sean Duffy: Donald Trump Speaks For White Men

Trump surrogates are either unabashed liars, or they’re complete simpletons who often tell unpleasant truths. In Wisconsin’s Sean Duffy they have both.

Source: Think Progress

During a CNN interview this morning, Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) acknowledged the Trump phenomenon for what it is — identity politics for white men.

While opining about Trump’s RNC-closing speech, Duffy said, “There’s a viewpoint that says, ‘I can fight for minorities, and I can fight for women,’ and if you get that, you make up a vast majority of the voting block and you win. And white males have been left aside a little bit in the politics of who speaks to them.”

Duffy’s implication is that in Trump, white guys have finally found a candidate who speaks to their concerns.

Tweets That Perfectly Sum Up The Struggles Of 20-Something Yr Olds

http://thePlunder.com/tweets-that-perfectly-sum-up-the-struggles-of-20-something-yr-olds/

When you’re young, all you want to do is grow up. But then you hit your twenties and you begin to realize that growing up isn’t as great as it once seemed. Because growing up doesn’t just mean being taller, being able to drive, and being able to buy your own alcohol AND consume it. It also means having responsibilities, having to answer awkward questions about your career prospects and family plans, and, well, basically acting all grown up and mature.

If you’re a twentysomething struggling to cope with adulthood then, as you can see from these tweets that you’re not the only one.

At Least Donald Trump, Jr. Plagiarized A Conservative

This isn’t an accident anymore. I have the sense that the Trump family spent today clearing the speeches of any language that came from Democrats, but plagiarism is not a problem for them. Not a problem at all.

http://pic.twitter.com/QEftnTTwy3

— The Daily Show (@TheDailyShow) July 20, 2016

When I was watching the speech, I remarked that these lines (one of the more memorable) sounded like they came from Paul Ryan, but no. It’s William F. Buckley, Jr.

It’s true, you know. The Trumps take other people’s work and slap their brand on it. Whether it’s wine, or steaks, or speeches.

I Lived With 40 Bears For 3 Days To Capture These Images

http://thePlunder.com/i-lived-with-40-bears-for-3-days-to-capture-these-images/

If you walk into the Finnish-Russian woods today, you’ll be in for a very big surprise.

This area – Ruhtinansalmi – has the highest concentration of brown bears in the European continent. As a wildlife photographer, I made it my mission to immerse myself into their habitat for 3 days and so I did.

Living in “Suicide Hide” – so called because the bears come within 30cm of you – for 3 days, I lived with over 40 bears during that time. It was the most life-changing experience of my life – I’ve never felt so small.

In case you can’t read the words on the contract below, Ailes will officially terminate on Friday, July 22nd. He will get a $40 million buyout of his contract, health insurance for himself and his dependents for life, and personal security services for the next six months.

Okay, has everyone had enough of the lunacy for one night? I sure have, so I was so grateful to laugh my butt off for a few minutes, thanks to our own Heather, who made this clip to close the night.

Last call, folks. Enjoy the video, and we’ll be back in the morning with more of the stories you all love so much.

Laugh!

The University of North Texas Really Didn’t Think This Through

http://thePlunder.com/the-university-of-north-texas-really-didnt-think-this-through/

What do you see in this picture? A plain white mug with the letters UNT on it? Then you’ve got it all wrong. Take another look. Can you see it now? It’s right there. In big and bold letters. That’s right: CUNT.

The University of North Texas really messed up here. Whoever designed these mugs obviously didn’t think everything through. Or did they…? Well, either way, at least it made us smile, right?
