deposing

Right, there’s no fucking point in conspiring against Corbyn at this point, okay? I voted for Owen Smith, but it would be ridiculous at this point to think that Corbyn isn’t here to stay for a good while yet.

You can go on all you want about “saving the Labour party,” but splitting the party isn’t going to save it. Perfect unity is probably impossible at this point, but the fact remains there is no way to get rid of Corbyn so long as there are so many members supporting him. If you want to leave that’s fair enough, but further efforts to depose him are pointless right now.

If we can’t actually get rid, what is there to gain from publicly denouncing him? Being critical of him is a different thing, but we need to be critical in order to encourage change, not just to stick the boot in. It’s perfectly reasonable to call him out when he fucks up, but gathering outside the conference to insist he must go is another thing altogether. 

I’m still not entirely convinced this can work. I think the fact that the PLP voted “no confidence” in Corbyn is enough in itself to make it almost impossible for him to get elected as PM. I am still pissed off about his lack of contribution to the Remain campaign. But the fact remains, the membership wants him and there’s no way around that. So I’m gonna make the best of it.

Even if you don’t want to do that… even if you’re still angry about this result… at least recognise that it’s not really in your interests to be conspiring against him right now. The uprising by the PLP has enabled Corbyn’s supporters to blame all of his problems on the “coup,” which has made it incredibly easy for them to dismiss valid concerns about him. Feeding into that won’t help to get rid of Corbyn, so what do you have to lose by trying to make this work?

BLIND GUARDIAN - CURSE MY NAME FROM AT THE EDGE OF TIME 2010 . i know im making a copyright infringement but this is just the way i say tank you to my favour...

The tenure of kings and their magistrates
By good men it must be deposed
The covenant made can be voided at once
Disanoint him, take his crow

They plead for their king
And they pity their lord
Put him to death, that’s what I say

Though never so just these dancing divines
Endue him with reason and grace
They’re gibberish
Words dissemble the facts
God’s will
They falsely will claim

Let him curse my name
On these blood stained pages of misery
Let him call me a tyrant so cruel
Let him curse my name
But remeber the truth

So there they come
From everywhere
The witness revenge
Hear them calling
“You’re laden with blood
It’s spilled everywhere
And sorrow’s everlasting

Oh you’ll be aware now
That trial is near
It’s close at hand
The masquerade is over
It ends
Remove his crown
And bring him down
Now we shall mourn no longer
Our prayers they’ve been heard
There’s no more league
That will bind us to the tyrant
Our voices shall be heard
Cause we won’t take it anymore
And we’re one we are the nation
And we’re one we are the law”

Falsely they praise
Deify his majesty
“He’s blessed the anointed’s
Fulfilling god’s will”
Curse them all
No further he’s king
Providence brought him straight into our hands

Let him curse my name
On these blood stained pages of misery
Let him call me a tyrant so cruel
Let him curse my name but remember the truth

Now let him appear
There’s joy in the air
Now witness a new age is dawning
In trouble alone
He’s facing despair
Awaiting his bitter ending

We all know he’s guilty as charged
By punishment due to his crime
We sacrifice the wicked king
Acknowledged by scriptures and law

Let him curse my name
On these blood stained pages of misery
Let him call me a tyrant so cruel
Let him curse my name but remember the truth
On these blood stained pages of misery
Let him call me a tyrant so cruel
Let him curse my name but remember the truth
We won’t take it anymore
Our voice it shall be heard
But I will remember the truth
We won’t take it anymore
Our voice it shall be heard
But I will remember the truth

“You may have heard that there’s a movement afoot to kick Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replace him with a woman. Finally, we’ve got a current event that’s not depressing.“

”The U.S. Treasury hasn’t changed the faces on the bills since 1929, when Andrew Jackson elbowed out Grover Cleveland on the $20. Why, you may be asking yourself, did they pick Jackson? And why was Grover Cleveland there to begin with? Nobody seems to know.”

“”Women on 20s” picked Jackson to depose mainly because of his horrific history with Native Americans, although there’s also the rather blissful note that Jackson disapproved of paper currency.“

“The Native American issue looms large when it comes to replacing Jackson, who sent the Cherokee Nation on the Trail of Tears. Lately, [Women on 20s] have decided that when they announce their three top vote-getters and ask people to pick a winner, they’re going to add a fourth option: Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation. (“People felt it would be poetic justice.”)

If I could add a nominee it might be Angelina Grimke, the great abolitionist orator. Or Sybil Ludington, who rode through New York one night in 1777 warning her countrymen the British were coming. (Just like Paul Revere, except Sybil was 16, and rode twice as far.) Or Margaret Brent, who used her business acumen to save the colony of Maryland from being destroyed by mercenary soldiers in 1647.

Or maybe Elizabeth Jennings, the black New Yorker who sued the trolley company that tossed her off a whites-only car in 1854 — a court action that led to the desegregation of mass transit in the city 100 years before Rosa Parks.

But then, of course, you don’t want to pass up Rosa Parks. There are thousands of possibilities. Nominate among yourselves.“

A Woman’s Place Is on the $20

Hillary Clinton will be good for women. Ask Berta Cáceres. But you can’t. She’s dead. Gunned down yesterday, March 2, at midnight, in her hometown of La Esperanza, Intibuca, in Honduras. Cáceres was a vocal and brave indigenous leader, an opponent of the 2009 Honduran coup that Hillary Clinton, as secretary of state, made possible. In The Nation, Dana Frank and I covered that coup as it unfolded. Later, as Clinton’s emails were released, others, such as Robert Naiman, Mark Weisbrot, and Alex Main, revealed the central role she played in undercutting Manuel Zelaya, the deposed president, and undercutting the opposition movement demanding his restoration. In so doing, Clinton allied with the worst sectors of Honduran society.

The Dandelion Dynasty series: The Grace of Kings &  The Wall Of Storms.

“ Wily, charming Kuni Garu, a bandit, and stern, fearless Mata Zyndu, the son of a deposed duke, seem like polar opposites. Yet, in the uprising against the emperor, the two quickly become the best of friends after a series of adventures fighting against vast conscripted armies, silk-draped airships, and shapeshifting gods. 

Once the emperor has been overthrown, however, they each find themselves the leader of separate factions—two sides with very different ideas about how the world should be run and the meaning of justice.”

¿What is your favorite scene?

Richard: Undoubtedly, the confrontation between Thorin and Thranduil.

Thorin says everything he thinks about it, is the way to vent anger and helplessness that can not pour on Smaug, is a beautifully written sequence, no special effects : only two actors face to face. 

Lee: One that immediately comes to mind is the scene where I welcome Thorin and the dwarves in my fortified palace after the capture. This is a very hard, very tense confrontation between two kings. There is one side a king who reigns, and the other a deposed king from his throne and the land of his ancestors, who seeks to reclaim it. I loved working with Richard Armitage. It turns out that this is the first scene in Hobbit when I show, and I remember that I thought “What a great start!” (Laughs).

Grey Warden Stroud: Sorry about the invasion but Grey Wardens don’t involve themselves in political stuff. see you, Hawke.

Queen Cousland: Oh, oh right, totally, we would never…

King Alistair: …involve Grey Wardens in politics, that would be ridiculous

Queen Cousland: yeah we would never depose a queen and shove one of our own on the throne, of course not

King Alistair: two of our own

Queen Cousland: the last two in the country

King Alistair: we also would never make a Grey Warden acting arlessa and make her appease a bunch of shitty nobles while leading a fight against a bunch of darkspawn

Queen Cousland: or sneakily get a bunch of nobles on our side so we could commandeer a Landsmeet in order to kill a Regent

King Alistair: mostly for revenge

Queen Cousland: Ooh, ooh, or choose who was going to be the next King of Orzammar

King Alistair: or talk the Dalish keeper into dying so someone else could take over.

Queen Cousland: yeah we’ve never involved ourselves in political stuff.

pink diamond was deposed before or during the war.

centipeetle only drew three diamonds when explaining who sent the corruption blast. that means she was aware that pink diamond was no longer a diamond by the end of the gem war. (I don’t think this means the corruption blast corrupted PD, since centi would’ve been corrupted and not aware that that happened to her) so PD was gone either before or during the war.

furthermore, she draws the old diamond authority symbol with the bottom diamond missing, NOT the updated anti-triforce logo from the ship in jailbreak.

this further cements the idea that PD’s deposal was recent around the time of the corruption blast.

@sakixhaise

Sits in the corner of his cell in Cochela. Being thrown in here after trying too fend off against Arima so that Hinami and the others could escape left him in bad shape in a jail cell. He grew tired of crying no matter how much he wanted too everyday so he just sat depressed and quite in his cell and hopes that maybe…he’ll either be deposed of, or released.

I kinda feel like the people freaking out about North Korea are probably younger folk who are just starting to seriously pay attention to the news cycle because of the weird ass election we’re having? Or maybe only pay attention during election years and have been tuned out since 2012?

If so, let me fill you in: since Kim Jong Un consolidated his power North Korea throws around declarations of war every few months. This is nothing to panic about. Kim Jong Un is a power mad demagogue but he’s not stupid enough to start a war that he knows will only end with him being deposed.

mythology meme - four of four titans: kronos

Kronos (or Cronus) was the Titan god of time and the ages, especially time where regarded as destructive and all-devouring. He ruled the cosmos during the so-called Golden Age, after castrating and deposing his father Ouranos (the Sky). In fear of a prophecy that he would be in turn be overthrown by his own son, Kronos swallowed each of his children as soon as they were born. Rhea managed to save the youngest, Zeus, by hiding him away on the island of Krete, and fed Kronos a stone wrapped in the swaddling clothes of an infant. The god grew up, forced Kronos to disgorge his swallowed offspring, and led the Olympians in a ten year war against the Titanes, before driving them defeated into the pit of Tartaros.

Many human generations later, Zeus released Kronos and his brothers from this prison, and made the old Titan king of the Elysian Islands, home of the blessed dead.

since I’m bitching I wanna explain what I mean when I say American presidents get away with everything…for me a perfect example is Bill Clinton. he’s a mass murderer but his reputation is sooo squeaky clean! touted as the great American president of the 90s, the apple of every liberal’s eye. I don’t think a lot of people know this but his sanctions against Iraq in the 90s killed at least half a million people. his adminstration blocked Iraqis from getting adequate food and medicines, all because the U.S. govt claimed it would work in their favour to depose S*ddam. which it didn’t, instead thousands starved and died. here’s some sources:

“This is a war against the children of Iraq on two fronts: bombing, which in the last year cost the British taxpayer £60 million. And the most ruthless embargo in modern history. According to Unicef, the United Nations Children’s Fund, the death rate of children under five is more than 4,000 a month - that is 4,000 more than would have died before sanctions. That is half a million children dead in eight years. If this statistic is difficult to grasp, consider, on the day you read this, up to 200 Iraqi children may die needlessly. “Even if not all the suffering in Iraq can be imputed to external factors,” says Unicef, “the Iraqi people would not be undergoing such deprivation in the absence of the prolonged measures imposed by the Security Council and the effects of war.” (read)

“When asked on US television if she [Madeline Albright, US Secretary of State] thought that the death of half a million Iraqi children [from sanctions in Iraq] was a price worth paying, Albright replied: “This is a very hard choice, but we think the price is worth it.” (read)

“Yes, even four and a half years ago, 500,000 Iraqi children had already died as a direct result of economic sanctions. Over one million Iraqi civilians have died from the sanctions, mostly children under age five. Those are not Iraqi figures – those figures come from Unicef, the World Health Organization, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the UN’s Department of Humanitarian Affairs, and other international sources. The “oil-for-food” program is so ineffectual that two consecutive UN directors of that program (Denis Haliday and Hans Von Sponeck) resigned, out of protest that they were presiding over a humanitarian disaster which can only be called genocide. They were UN Assistant Secretaries General, the highest ranking UN personnel ever to resign for reasons of conscience.” (read)

anyways I’m mentioning this because look at what this man got away with, and most people aren’t even aware of it. he lives such a great life when he belongs in a jail cell, and everyone knows about the famous war crimes of Bush but Clinton is really protected and hasn’t had to face up to anything he’s done.

WHAT A FEELING 2:29 TO 2:44 IS QUITE LITERALLY THE BEST PART OF ANY SONG EVER RECORDED !!!!
