CETERUM CENSEO HANNIBAL MUST BE SAVED.

No, Obama didn’t ban Iraqi refugees in 2011

  • In a statement Sunday, Trump defended his executive order targeting Muslim immigrants and refugees by saying that his policy is “similar to what [former] President (Barack Obama) did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months.”
  • Like so much of what Trump says, this is false: the Obama administration did not ban refugees from Iraq for six months in 2011.
  • In May 2011, two Iraqis in Kentucky were arrested on terrorism charges after admitting to having attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq. 
  • The FBI suggested at the time that “dozens” of terrorists may have entered the U.S. posing as refugees, leading the Obama administration to “re-examine the records of 58,000 Iraqis who had been settled in the United States.” 
  • It "imposed new, more extensive background checks on Iraqi refugees,” according to the Washington Post.
  • This significantly slowed the admissions process, the Post reports, but did not amount to a “ban,” as Trump described it. 
  • Iraqi refugees were still being admitted to the U.S., albeit at a more sluggish pace.
  • Additionally, Obama’s review applied only to Iraqi’s applying for Special Immigrant Visas – which help those who have assisted the U.S. in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan – and not to virtually all immigrants from seven countries, as Trump’s does. 
  • Further, the Obama review came in response to a specific threat; Trump has not offered information demonstrating a need for his ban. Read more

Introducing Mass Deleter

Mass Deleter is a new (and highly experimental) extension that allows you to mass delete drafts and unlike your liked posts.

Just go to your Drafts or Likes page, and click one of the options on the sidebar. You can delete/unlike 100 or 1,000 posts with one click.

Mass Unlike / Delete is limited to 1,000 posts since I don’t want to put a lot of strain on Tumblr’s servers. To delete more than 1,000, just refresh the page and click on the button on the sidebar again.

Please note that it’s at version 0.1, and due to the way Tumblr servers work, Mass Unlike mode is highly unstable and disabled by default. You need to go to Mass Deleter control panel to enable it. I’m working on it, but I’m not sure if there is anything I can do with the way their servers work, I apologize for that.

tips for the new year

stop arguing extensively with people online as a hobby:

  • its boring and isolating
  • its a cheap way to get a short burst of self esteem in something thats not actually fun or encourages your own growth
  • the likelihood that you, a complete stranger, will change someone’s mind if you just tweet at them enough is close to zero
  • you should take time to think seriously about how you want to engage with the world and develop your opinions based on varied, new experiences
  • if you ignore shitty people it makes them go so ballistic they meltdown spectacularly, pretty much every time without fail
  • no one is impressed by your internet text victory. in the rare cases where someone is, its impressive for the 3 seconds it took to read the tweet
  • when i have to scroll past your 120000 word nerd slap fight it mildly inconveniences me
  • just play a video game

“Classic Header” is now “Header Options”

And it allows you to un-stickify the header and make it’s width fixed (which might be useful if you keep trying to click the blank space where the Tumblr logo used to be, like me.)

It also allows you to make the notification bubble on the Inbox red again, so you wouldn’t miss new messages.

If you already have “Classic Header”, you can perform an Update All from XKit Control Panel > Other > Update All to upgrade.

Kate Sheppard (1847-1934) is the most prominent suffragette of New Zealand, who worked extensively to secure women’s right to vote in the country. She helped introduce the suffrage bill in 1887, and her efforts were rewarded in 1893, when New Zealand became the first country in the world to introduce universal suffrage.

She was the author of a pamphlet entitled Ten Reasons Why the Women of N.Z. Should Vote. After the suffrage bill was passed, she led significant efforts to encourage the women in the country to register to vote. Today, a trust award in her name is offered annually to a woman to fund her study, training, or research.

Introducing NotificationBlock

A lot of people requested this: one post becomes really popular, making it impossible to see notes from other posts. Click on the NotificationBlock button on the post, and all the notifications from that post will be hidden.

If you have Go-To-Dash installed, you can click on a notification, then select View from top-right corner and block the post from there. I’m working on blocking right from the notification bars.

(Note: For this to work correctly with Old Notifications, you need to update it. Wait for it to update itself, or go to the XKit Control Panel to update it manually)

Please note that this is very experimental (version 0.1 Rev A), so if you hit a bug, please let me know by sending me an ask. Thank you!

fnv x skyrim crossover bcos hear me out here

ARCADE is an altmer studying restoration magic at the college of winterhold. he mostly keeps to himself, researching new spells, as many nords dont take kindly to an elf practicing magic so close to their holds. he is tight-lipped about it, but the rumors of his past association with the aldmeri dominion hold merit. he has an interest in linguistics, and is fluent in dovahzul.

BOONE is an imperial. he carries several years of experience with the legion (ironic, i admit) under his belt, honing his skills with the bow and arrow and his deadliness from afar. as events involving a kidnapping by bandits led to his wife’s death, boone makes it his goal to rid skyrim of as many of them as possible.

CASS is a khajiiti caravan owner, and if her time in skyrim has taught her one thing, its that youre going to have to be twice as smart and twice as tough as any nord if youre going to make it. unlike many of her kind, cass is never found under the influences of skooma–something about a heart condition. instead, she takes her ale nordic style, and could drink any of you pretty blond boys under the table.

ED-E is a modified dwarven spider. it and its control rod were taken from dwemer ruins and enchanted by dominion mages to give it the capacity to unleash electric attacks. ED-E was then sent to carry a message all the way from summerset to the embassy in skyrim, but it never arrived.

LILY is an elderly nord woman with a secret–she is a werebear. her condition did not come from the companions, however, and she takes great shame in it. lily struggles to control her more bestial nature, and although it makes her incredibly deadly in close-combat, it makes her reckless as well. she has learned a spell to control her transformations, but by casting it she sacrifices her memories. she does so half as much as the mage who taught it to her recommended, however, so that she may hold on to at least a sliver of her humanity.

RAUL is a redguard, but more notably a vampire. he is over 200 years old, and a long-past run-in with the dawnguard has left him with burns all over his body. by day he is a sarcastic but charming blacksmith, repairing arms and armor for anyone with the septims to spare, but by night he uses his vampiric abilities to avenge the death of his sister, who was killed at the hands of bandits.

REX was a warhound in life. when he died, his owner, who just so happened to be a powerful necromancer, could not bear to be without him, and used their powers to reanimate his corpse by bringing his spirit back from aetherius. having been placed back in a mortal form after experiencing the realm of magicka brings rex great discomfort, and from time to time he requires the ritual be repeated, anchoring his spirit on nirn once again.

VERONICA is a dunmer descending from a long line of dark brotherhood members. though her skill in the trade and devotion to sithis and the night mother is remarkable, veronica is displeased with how far the skyrim chapter of the organization has strayed from its original goals and traditions, and voicing these opinions has netted much disapproval with her higher-ups.

Introducing Search Likes

Search Likes is a new, very experimental extension does exactly what the its name tells you: searching your liked posts by text or username. 

Due to way Tumblr’s Liked Posts page works, it might be unreliable or take a long time to find posts. There isn’t much I can do about it, but I’m working on improving it. In the meanwhile, if you hit any bugs, please let me know by sending an ask. Thank you!

So you’re telling me that Izzy Lightwood, best forensic pathologist in New York, which requires extensive study in biology of both mundane and supernatural things, does not know what Yin Fen is? That if she did not know what it is, she did not even look it up in the Institute’s big-ass library before using it repeatedly? That she did not analyse the thing to figure out its properties and side effects?

What kind of out of character bullshit

Introducing Post Archiver!

Every once in a while we hit a post that is really useful: it can be a recipe, a website, an audio post we want to listen over and over again, or maybe a post that might come in handy in the future, such as a list of suicide hotlines.

We like them, we reblog them and/or draft them but after a while they get lost. This is where Post Archiver comes in: it saves posts on your computer and lets you organize them. You can rename them, you can categorize them and search them.

Just install it from the gallery, and click on the Save button on any post on your dashboard to get started. You can add/remove/rename categories from it’s control panel, and view saved posts from the button on your sidebar.

It is pretty experimental for now, so if you hit any bugs or have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

Got to try out some new magazine extensions for my Glock 43. I have used the peace extension grip for over a year, with no problems. I just got the Ghost +2 extension and the Zahal +4 extension. I ran a box of ammo through both and had just one malfunction with the Zahal first set. After being broke in, it worked fine. I have no complaints about either. With the Zahal I was able to get hits every time at 20 yards on a half size silhouette. Don’t hesitate getting either of these.

@norseminuteman and any other Glock 43 carrier’s.
