Trump & Erdogan are in Belgium for a NATO meeting.. and over 12000 Belgians took to the streets to protest their presidencies.

It’s objectively too late to restrain population and consumption growth so as to avert what ecologists of the 1970s called a “hard landing.”

It is the lie that human society can continue growing its population and consumption levels indefinitely on our finite planet, and never suffer consequences.

Perhaps Donald Trump succeeded because his promises spoke to what civilizations in decline tend to want to hear. It could be argued that the pluralistic, secular, cosmopolitan, tolerant, constitutional democratic nation state is a political arrangement appropriate for a growing economy buoyed by pervasive optimism. (On a scale much smaller than contemporary America, ancient Greece and Rome during their early expansionary periods provided examples of this kind of political-social arrangement). As societies contract, people turn fearful, angry, and pessimistic—and fear, anger, and pessimism fairly dripped from Trump’s inaugural address. In periods of decline, strongmen tend to arise promising to restore past glories and to defeat domestic and foreign enemies. Repressive kleptocracies are the rule rather than the exception.

Ellen DeGeneres Agrees To Netflix Stand-Up Special

Ellen DeGeneres Agrees To Netflix Stand-Up Special

Pharrell Ellen

Even though Ellen DeGeneres cracks us up daily on the Emmy-winning Ellen, it’s been more than a decade since her last stand-up special. Thanks to Netflix, that’s about to change.

The pair’s announcement came in the form of a Wednesday Twitter exchange that sent fan reeling on the social network.

Looks like it’s been 15 years since you did a stand-up special, @TheEllenShow. How about one for Netflix?

Let me think about it. Ok I’m in. https://t.co/kUAdHyXAjS

DeGeneres’ last stand-up special, “Ellen DeGeneres: Here and Now,” premiered on HBO on June 25, 2003, and it looks like DeGeneres shares our opinion that it’s been long enough.

“It has been 15 years since I did a stand-up special. 15 years,” DeGeneres said in a statement provided through Netflix, HuffPost reports. “And I’m writing it now, I can’t wait. I’ll keep you posted when and where I’m gonna shoot my Netflix special. I’m excited to do it; I’m excited for you to see it.”

The special has yet to film, so the release date is unknown at this point, but DeGeneres’ deal with Netflix comes after a number of popular comedians have released their own specials. Louis C.K., Iliza Shlesinger and Amy Schumer are just a few of the comedians who have released their own stand-up specials on the streaming service recently.

Theresa May, Rob Gronkowski, Sia, Reince Priebus, Ben Carson, DJI Spark, Grindr: HOT LINKS

Theresa May, Rob Gronkowski, Sia, Reince Priebus, Ben Carson, DJI Spark, Grindr: HOT LINKS

THERESA MAY. “I will be making clear to President Trump today that intelligence that is shared between law enforcement agencies must remain secure.

Ben CarsonA STATE OF MIND. What Ben Carson calls poverty: “Mr. Carson, who oversees a department that handles housing for millions of low-income Americans, made the comments during a radio interview on Tuesday with Armstrong Williams, a friend and conservative media personality. During the talk, Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, said he thought some people were poor because of their outlook on life.”

GOP HEALTHCARE LIES. Preexisting conditions won’t be covered: “They were lying back in March, when they introduced the initial version of the legislation ― a bill GOP leaders had to pull at the last minute because it didn’t have enough votes to pass. And they have been lying since early May, after they revised that proposal and rushed to vote on it before the CBO, Washington’s official scorekeeper, had time to evaluate it formally.” CBO Score is awful.

Reince PriebusCOMEY MEMOS. Reince Priebus sweating: “Three White House officials told The Daily Beast that Chief of Staff Reince Priebus has privately expressed worry about a possible Comey memo specifically involving one of their reported chats, and how it might play in the press and to investigators. ‘Nervous laughter,’ one official succinctly characterized Priebus’ demeanor in the midst of recent revelations.”

25 MILLION. Katy Perry is proud of her Idol paycheck.

WE DON’T BELONG HERE. Anton Yelchin plays gay, bipolar son of Catherine Keener in final film.

grindr olympics240 MILLION. Chinese firm buys remaining stake in Grindr. “Beijing Kunlun Tech, a game developer owned by 38-year-old billionaire Zhou Yahui, said on Wednesday it planned to pay US$152 million to buy the remaining 38 per cent stake in Grindr that it does not already own. Kunlun paid about US$88 million for a 62 per cent stake of the social media app in January last year, which meant that the startup’s valuation has gained 161 per cent since the Chinese firm’s last purchase.”

Tom HArdyTOM HARDY. Actor fundraises for Manchester victims: “I hope between us we can raise some funds as a gesture of goodwill and love to help in some small way towards repairing some if any of the damage done in the wake of last nights events. There will be much to do and for many the beginning of a new life without those that they love and also a new life damaged irrevocably by the actions of a crime which has no reason, no heartfelt purpose but was simply a cruel cowardly and barbaric, meaningless act of violence. A road to recovery unimaginable.”

BILLBOARD LEFTOVERS. The hottest men at the 2017 awards.

SUSHI BAR. Watch Rob Gronkowski’s body serve as the sushi bar in a new music video.

NEW TUNE OF THE DAY. Sia featuring Labrinth ” To Be Human” from Wonder Woman.

TECH OF THE DAY. The DJI Spark.

THIRSTY THURSDAY. Aun Warit.

Trump Just Shoved Another NATO Member to Get to the Front of a Group: WATCH

At a NATO gathering in Brussels, Donald Trump appeared to shove Montenegro Prime Minister Duško Markovic out of the way to get to the front of a group of leaders.

Trump’s shoving got the attention of the other leaders, who watched as he adjusted his jacket with a smug look of satisfaction.

Watch:
