Shameless liar Sarah Sanders calls protecting DACA recipients ‘divisive.’ The facts say otherwise

Oh, look, part-time White House press secretary and full-time shameless mentirosa Sarah Sanders finally decided to grace reporters with her presence on Thursday, when she was questioned about why failson Jared Kushner’s very-not-serious immigration “plan” fails...

The GOP’s new SCOTUS strategy. Infomercials.

This shit is going to put me out of business. The best description of the job of a comedian is “One who finds and exposes the absurdity in the mundane.” But what happens to guys like me when what should be mundane is by itself completely ridiculous? I remember the good old days when Supreme Court […]

Remember ‘If Migrants Throw Rocks, Consider It A Rifle?’ Now, Militia Men Want To...

If you’re not up to speed on the back story, there’s a RWNJ group called the “Minutemen Militia,” whose purported role is to assist the U.S. Border Patrol — which they believe is overwhelmed by an invasionary force of immigrants and in need of an armed citizenry to maintain law and order. Last November, the Border Patrol was briefed not only on the issue of Trump’s fantasy caravan heading north to overwhelm the southern border, but also on the growing concern of citizens arriving in RVs and setting up camp, prepared for a skirmish. Here’s a recent communique from a New Mexico police office, who encountered a member of one of these groups, ostensibly there for the purpose of assisting Border Patrol. Member of border militia that detained 200 migrants at gunpoint told police another member had said, “Why are we…not lining them up and shooting them? We have to go back to Hitler days and put them all in a gas chamber” per report I obtained under FOIA: https://t.co/XLUCBIAGTo pic.twitter.com/Bdtv3H28sp — Ken Klippenstein (@kenklippenstein) May 6, 2019 The obvious problem here is that nobody knows who is who. There are splinter groups in the border militia, who are getting progressively more outrageous, as this tweet proves. To assist border patrol by observing and reporting on activity on or around the border is one thing. To have people prepared to carry out executions on the spot, is quite another. I wrote about this in November, when Trump made yet another infamous crack, conflating rocks and bullets, and basically giving the go-ahead for violence to be used against migrants crossing the border. Here’s one story on the militia group that called the ACLU and SPLC “transnational criminal cartels.” This is a frightening world view to say the very least. Trump is just fine with it, because to him it’s all political theater. He’s safe and cozy, why should he be worried about the fact that his policies, and those of henchman Stephen Miller, are putting marginalized, vulnerable people at terrible risk?

Have You Ever Wondered About The Scene In Kellyanne and George Conway’s House?

It’s an interesting fact of Washington life that the Counselor to the President, Kellyanne Conway, is married to a man who makes no bones about describing her boss as a narcissist and a fool. That’s George Conway’s take. Now here’s his wife, asked by a reporter why Trump compares his economic policies to the unstoppable zombie apocalypse on Game of Thrones. :40 Maybe the Conways just agree to disagree. Who knows? And it doesn’t matter, but it is interesting, that they both take a passionate stance, one pro Trump, one anti. My guess is that Kellyanne knows she’s acting a part, and she’s getting paid very handsomely for it. I think when this is all over, she may well be the first to fold and do a great tell-all book. And look for Ivanka to make mega bucks after Daddy croaks and she spills the beans.
