“None of you are listening!” Kara yelled at the assembled women trying to save the world. “You know what? If you don’t need my ideas, you’re welcome to go fight the Daxamites by yourself.” She zipped across the room fast enough to blur, almost tearing the door to the fire exit off its hinges in her temper.

Alex moved to follow, but Cat waved her off.

“Agent Scully, keep an eye on Norma Bates here,” Cat nodded towards Lillian. “Supergirl and I are due for a catchup.” Her heels clicked across the floor as she followed in Kara’s wake. Those would have to be changed out for flats if she really would be expected to venture out in the field with them. That suggestion had been the reason for Kara’s outburst, or at least the last straw across her unbreakable back.

“Go away, Alex,” Kara grumbled, landing blows on a cleaner than average dumpster.

“Last I checked your sister wasn’t wearing Gianvitto Rossi heels. Need that superhearing checked?”

“I’m not going to allow it, so don’t start with me, Cat.”

“Allow?” Cat stepped in closer, wrinkling her nose at the mess in the alley. She made exceptions for Kara all the time, but really. “That chucklehead from Dixon has really done a number on you, if you think a grown woman has to be allowed to do any damn thing she wants. I’ll be a decoy if I’m needed, Kara.”

The Movement for Black Lives responds to recent claims of a fractured coalition

(Editor’s note: On Wednesday, BuzzFeed published an article titled “What Happened to Black Lives Matter?” According to organizers within the Movement for Black Lives, the article includes multiple inaccuracies and the groups are seeking corrections or a retraction. Below is their response to the original article.)

Real progress always comes out of the struggle, sacrifice and dedication of people working within movements for justice. Yet we face increased surveillance, and our communities are under attack. The Trump administration is engaged in a program of wholesale community destruction. The right-wing is emboldened and celebrates with avowed white supremacists as police kill us with impunity, deport us without question and jail us without precondition.

These are dangerous times for our people. History tells us that we need responsible, thoughtful and brave journalism. But movements can be stopped in their tracks by uninformed and inaccurate hit pieces that trade in gossip. We must consider what we believe in, who we stand with, and what we are fighting for.

The Movement for Black Lives is a space where groups working toward black liberation can come together, combine our collective powers and dream big. Our organizations are of varying sizes and take different approaches. Individually, we are a spectrum of gender identity, sexuality, region, age, class and political belief. We are not always in full agreement, we have competing ideas and we will undoubtedly upset each other in the process of making difficult decisions. We are here because we believe that our victories in service of black people are bigger and better when we win together.

We make no assumptions that everyone and everything within our movement is perfect — far from it. We are not above critique. We need as many people as possible in order to win and we endeavor to work with integrity and purpose. And when we arrive at conflict, we do our best to hold each other to that standard, no matter how difficult or inconvenient. We don’t always get this right, but in order to do so, it requires all of us to hold these values.

We keep coming back to each other, even when it is difficult, because of our collaborative potential. Together, we have bailed out black moms unjustly incarcerated under a racist system of money bail that we will end. On Juneteenth, black folks across the country took over vacant and unused land across the country for the benefit of our communities that badly need it. Through #ReclaimMLK, we have resurrected the radical legacy from which our movements are born. We have planned national days of action that have brought hundreds of thousands into the streets and into this movement. This is a fraction of our work together and we know it is worth fighting for because our lives depend on it.

Our work is not about ego or celebrity assigned by an often irresponsible press corps. We know that our movement is made up of countless people, whose dedication is tireless, and whose names most will never know. It is made up of the quiet leadership of those who agree to keep coming back to the work, to each other and to our people.

We are proud of what we’ve done together and what is yet to come. It has not been easy, it is often thankless, but it has always centered our people. It will take all of us to make it through this administration and into a future where all of us, and our coming generations, can live with dignity and respect. Let’s get to work. Read more (Opinion)

Trump Survival Tip No. 10: Thermite

Ever wanted to stop an armored vehicle stupid-easily, with something that’s legal, very safe to store and use, easy to acquire, and burns like Satan’s asshole? Molotov cocktails might look very impressive, but there’s an incendiary that does all those things and that we’ve all been overlooking: thermite.

Thermite, for the uninitiated–which, let’s be real, it’s the Internet, you’ve all heard of thermite–is a non-explosive incendiary powder made from aluminum filings and iron oxide. It is completely safe to store, since it’s basically just metal dust. Like an 80% lower (more on that right here), it’s pretty much untraceable, as both rust and aluminum filings can be manufactured at home or bought at a hardware store with zero paperwork. And when ignited, it burns at around 2500 Fahrenheit (1400 C), also known as half the temperature of the goddamn sun.

Rust can be manufactured at home pretty easily. Take steel wool, put it in a jar filled with water. Weigh the wool down with a magnet so it doesn’t float. Add 5tbs of bleach and 5tbs of vinegar. Let it sit for a day or two, then filter the resultant brown paste with a coffee filter. Alternatively, you can go to a paint store, where they sell it pretty cheap for pigment mixing, or eBay, where you can straight-up buy it.

Aluminum is also pretty easy to get. Take a grinder to something made of aluminum (cans, bike parts, whatever) and collect the sparks, and bam, aluminum filings. Machine shops will probably give you plenty in exchange for sweeping. Or, like rust, paint shops and eBay are viable options as well.

Mix your two powders at a ratio of 8 parts rust to 3 parts aluminum, by weight. Aluminum is pretty light so it’ll look about fifty-fifty. Mix evenly. Optionally, you can mix four parts thermite with one part modeling clay to get moldable thermite. You can’t light thermite with a normal match; get a magnesium sparkler or bit of magnesium ribbon and light that, and you’re good to go. Now you can melt through the engine block of an armored car like the Alien’s blood through the Nostromo.

Remember: when we fight, we win, so know how to fight!

I'm chronically ill and spend most of my time in bed and require a wheelchair to move around. Would I still be able to partake in Gishwhes and if by some chance I won what would happen? As I'm to sick to fly...
