You know, if you’re just a regular, garden variety congressional slob with an (R) after your name, right now you’ve got to be feeling like a passenger in Murder on the Orient Express. You’re stuck in the middle of nowhere, it’s colder than hell outside, and you have no idea where the honeymoon went off the rails. But if you’re a card carrying Trumpkins disciple, you’ve got to be feeling like one of the suspects, just sitting around helplessly, and waiting for Hercule Poirot to drop the hammer on yo’ dumb ass. So, daddy’s widdle man drank his cold Nestle’s Quik too fast again, and had another brain belch. Now a constitutionally enshrined clause the emoluments clause, is just a “phony” emoluments clause, kind of like a constitutional equivalent of drawing a Sharpie balloon around Alabama.And now, another constitutional enshrinement, the impeachment clause, is nothing more than a “lynching.” That one about the emoluments clauses is a simple one, there for convenient use by the pillow headed commentators at FUX News, simple enough for their point drooling IQ’s to understand, and also to impart to their equally sense-impaired viewers. But the line comparing impeachment to a lynching is much deeper and darker, and potentially troubling too. For more than a year now, many people, including me, have made increasing comparisons between Trump’s scandals and Nixon’s Watergate affair. They’re all valid, but recently, I’m finding myself comparing Trump’s Waterloo to Berlin in the spring of 1945. In today’s screeching broadcast from deep underneath the Chancellery, Hair Twitler demands that the faithful of the GOP defend him harder, standing their ground to the last man, while they look to the west for the blessed “phantom army” of Trump voters next November, who will sweep in to save the day. There’s a good reason why Trump suddenly blathered out the word “lynching” today, in his verbal Trumper tantrum. It’s because the other shit isn’t working. From day one, the Mueller investigation was a WITCH HUNT! and a HOAX! and that’s all Trump ever referred to it as, in order to reinforce the image as part of The Big Lie. And since the serious impeachment inquiry began a month ago, Trump has branded it as exactly the same thing, a WITCH HUNT! and a HOAX! The problem is that with facts in evidence publicly, it becomes harder to carry that lame shit off. So, His Lowness needs a new buzz word to martyr himself as an innocent victim, so why not call t a “lynching?” After all, what could be more tragic and heroic than being compared to a lynching victim? And it’s absolutely perfect for the pocket racists over at FUX, there should be enough hair on fire over there to be smelled all the way out in Lincoln. In using this particular word, Trump probably honestly feels like he’s going to get a twofer. Trump uses dog whistles for two separate purposes. First, he uses them as what he thinks is a sneaky and devious signal to his supporters, specifically to evoke an emotional response in how they think of him or the issue du jour. But just as importantly, Trump uses these dog whistles as a distraction. The testimony today in the House is damning, and impeachment is taking off in popularity, but the old pap isn’t working. therefore, if […]
My daughter is sick. Relax, she’s not really sick. But what was the first thing that went through your head when you read that? I’m betting it was something along the lines of, “Oh, that poor guy!” There’s nothing worse than a sick child. I hope she’s alright.” Because even if you don’t have children of your own, you have friends or family members that do, and you know how everything just flat out stops when there’s a sick child in the family. An the worse the illness, the more regular life grinds to a stop. Rachel Maddow has done not only an outstanding job, but a national service in breaking the story of the unannounced change in Trump policy that is threatening to kick literally thousands of immigrant children who are receiving critical, life saving treatment, out of the country. And we’re not just talking about undocumented immigrants here, many of these children and their parents are here with permission of the U.S. government, under a program called the Medical Deferred Action program, which allows them to stay. And the Trump administration seems to have woken up one morning and decided, “Fuck it. That’s enough of that.” They are literally dispensing death sentences to juveniles via the U.S. postal service. As you can imagine, it’s not hard to see why the Trump politburo decided not to publicize this change in policy. Even as self contained racist as Stephen Miller, the Dr. Josef Mengele of the Trump administration, realized that this might stir up a little controversy. The truly astounding thing about this is that these imbeciles apparently thought that somehow or other, these families wouldn’t fight back, nor would their doctors or lawyers. They would just get the letter, pack up their sick children, cop a flight back home, make funeral arrangements, and nobody in the U.S. would ever be any the wiser. You know, there’s a reason why nasty, sadistic, pasty-faced little trolls like Stephen Miller have had sand kicked in their faces at every beach they’ve ever stepped on, or heckled out of every bar they ever walked into. There’s just something wrong about them, something broken inside that people can instinctively sense, and they not only don’t want to know them, they don’t want them anywhere in the same area code. This is the problem with putting a pure sociopath in a position of power. Donald Trump has no concept of empathy, he feels nothing for anyone but himself. If the last eight months or so have shown us nothing else, they have shown us how much of a debt we owe to men like Rex Tillerson, H.R. McMaster, and James Mattis. Think of where we would be if they hadn’t been there for as long as they were, either talking Trump out of his worst, more feral instincts, or finding ways to circumvent them. You can trace some of the degeneration of Trump to the departure of the Jarvanka “old hands,” and the increase in influence of mentally defective sycophants like Stephen Miller, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, and Mick Mulvaney. The problem with socially retarded mutants like Trump is that they’re magnets for kindred spirits. It’s only natural that social outcasts with no moral compass like Stephen Miller, Rob Porter, and Jeffrey Epstein would feel completely at home with a man […]
I don’t know how many pigs there are in Iowa, but I can tell you who the biggest one is. Take a look at what passes for humor in the warped, racist, sexist cerebral space that Steve King calls a mind. This is not a matter of political correctness, this is gross insensitivity. He is a white supremacist, & he is also owned by the farm lobbies. He keeps trying to add an amendment to the farm bill to ban states from passing animal welfare laws. I’m sure he loves finding a way to insult Muslims AND promote factory farm products at the same time. — Rachel (@RSF1819) August 27, 2019 Everyone should eat pork. Hee haw, ain’t Steve clever? Maybe Joni Ernst can put an apple in his mouth and serve him at her next fundraiser. Is anybody wondering why this clown’s donor cash has dried up, why he had only two people show up to his last town hall, and why he is not exactly swamped with volunteers to get him reelected? Thought so. I hope all he eats for the rest of his life is bacon until his little cold heart is suffocated with fat. — Zia6890 (@CaliZia247) August 27, 2019 Couldn’t have said it better myself. And you’ll love this. King recently demanded an apology from a “very active and vibrant left-wing media” who he claimed misquoted him on his recent comments about how rape and incest are a normal part of life. He also claimed that the media “decided to do a hack job.” Oh, and he wants the Republicans to apologize to him, too. The Hill: “Iowans are significantly more positive than they are negative, and they know it’s a misquote, and they know [The Associated Press] has, I’ll say, retracted the quote that they initially used because they relied on the Des Moines Register, who did the same,” King said, according to video from NBC affiliate WHO. “So when we have a national, viral attack that comes down on a misquote and it’s absolutely proven, all the folks that did that attack, I think they owe me an apology, including my own leadership. I don’t expect that’s going to happen because egos are a little too strong in this business.” The Des Moines Register last week corrected a quote related to King’s remarks about members of Congress who co-sponsored legislation of his. The AP never issued a retraction of its story. And, emphatically, the GOP is not going to apologize to Steve King. He’ll be selling snow cones in Hell long before that occurs. Maybe King figures that he’s toast and he’s decided to go out with a bang, making these incredible statements, who knows? But I long to hear his concession speech and see him relegated to the ghost-at-the-banquet club that Dana Rohrabacher deservedly, and finally, went to. Steve King is long overdue for retirement from public life.
Steve King needs to take a page from Donald Trump’s playbook and learn how to fantasize crowds and then lie about their size, because today’s town hall turnout in King’s district was abysmal. A grand total of two people showed up. Whether they are staff or family is not known at this time. I did Nazi that coming. — Rubber Soul (@Astro_Nutz) August 17, 2019 No one could make it to Steve King's townhall – they are either raping their sister, in bankruptcy court, or too sick & without insurance — Gal Capone (@debpresente) August 17, 2019 What you can’t see is that there are 12,000 people outside. Standing room only out there. — Lance Deutschman (@DeutschmanLance) August 17, 2019 you prolly work for him or are directly related….you can't live there if you didn't hear aboutv it….you're shilling — email@example.com (@LavozFelipe) August 17, 2019 Just by the way, “Margaret” was outed as living in Wisconsin, on her Twitter profile. At least King’s retinue still contains a couple of bots, to be activated on social media when need be. The King love fest continued unabated. This happens when supporters are not allowed to wear their hoods to the gathering. — Willie Brown, CFA MBA (@ChillWillNupe88) August 17, 2019 The future of the @GOP — Silvermane (@TreeHappyDog) August 17, 2019 This is called “The Eastwood” — waitucanreadthis? (@edwelty) August 17, 2019 @MollyJongFast Just a hunch, but I’m guessing @SteveKingIA will not be comparing his crowd with Elton John’s. pic.twitter.com/hw28Dp1Fcn — B Koplow (@bmkoplow5) August 18, 2019 Looks like the joke’s on Steve King. Now let’s see Iowans vote him out. Toxic Republicans do go down the drain, eventually. It happened to Dana Rohrabacher after eleven terms. Let’s hope the cock is finally crowing for Steve King.
Well, it’s a sunny Saturday, so of course the guys in the brown shirts with the sauerbraten stains dribbling down the front, and the male bed sheet runway models with the pointy hats are wandering around downtown Portland like a bunch of retarded lemmings. Hell, why not? The welfare checks deposited yesterday, so they can afford a bus ride. But something is different this time. You don’t have to be able to read a Ph.D. thesis on nuclear dynamics to know that Der Gropinfuror is in trouble. Forget the economy, hell, even Fox News latest poll shows him within the margin of error when pitted against Norm from Cheers. Hair Twitler is getting a bucket of shit dumped on his head from everybody to the left of the guy who used to buff Mussolini’s bald pate. And why? Because they’re saying that the greatest president in the history of the United States is just like them! He’s a filthy, racist, goosestepping white supremacist! This is intolerable! Portland has always been a popular place for west coast losers wearing BDSM boots and carrying crops, and losers clad in California Kings to go and stir up trouble. Mainly because it’s easily accessible, and has a younger, more progressive population that they know they can get a rise out of. But here’s what’s different this time. Cast your mind back to the murderous tragedy of Charlottesville two years ago. That rally was planned and advertised weeks in advance. The organizers went through the normal steps of petitioning for, and being granted permits for assembly in particular locations. It was all very sane, normal, and aboveboard, until the event actually kicked off. I have two daughters who live with their hubbies in Portland, so I keep an eye out for news from there. Personally, I love Portland, it’s a fun, quirky city with a unique personality. But if memory serves e correctly, at least the last two white subpremacist rallies held there followed the Charlottesville model. Meaning that they were organized and promoted weeks in advance, and permits applied for and duly granted. But not this time. MSNBC reporting of a couple of hours ago stated that blocks of cops keeping the two groups separated were shouting through bullhorns that these were unauthorized assemblies, and as such were against the law, and the groups had better disperse, or risk a guest appearance on Lockup: Raw. And if this is true of both sides, then there is only one conclusion that I can draw. The goose stepping goobers, and the tiki torch twits feel that their Glorious Furor is being threatened. With Trump being pilloried for being something that they themselves are oh, so proud of, along with the growing realization that there are actually impeachment hearings under way, they are starting to feel that their Imperial Grand Wizard and Brownshirt Grande may actually be in jeopardy. They are coming together, s spontaneously as they can gather in large numbers, to defend their leader, and the niceties of permits be damned. They are aiming for a show of muscle, solidarity, and support. And of course, it will ultimately backfire on these hopeless morons. By rallying to Trump’s support and succor, they only confirm what everybody else is saying, that the sitting President of the United States is a virulent racist, and unfit for duty. And to be sure, being so fucking stupid […]
REVEALED: Citizenship Dir. Cuccinelli Has Been Railing Against “Alien Invaders” Responsible For “Terrorism” For...
Acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Ken Cuccinelli, rose to notoriety recently when he suggested that the famous, welcoming words on the Statue of Liberty could be better phrased, “give me your tired, your poor, who can stand on their own two feet and will not become a public charge.” He didn’t arrive at that charitable notion overnight. He’s been bashing immigrants for years, calling them, “foreign invaders” responsible for “serious infectious diseases, drug running, gang violence, human trafficking, terrorism,” and he founded a group that said as much. CNN: The group, State Legislators for Legal Immigration, was established in 2007, when an immigration revamp was being hotly debated in Congress. Its founding principle was that undocumented immigration represented an invasion of the United States on par with foreign invasion that should justify invoking war powers under the Constitution — extreme rhetoric Cuccinelli has continued to use in recent years, and that has been adopted by President Donald Trump and other Republicans. – Speaking with Breitbart radio in October of last year, Cuccinelli argued that states could use “war powers” to block Central American migrants, many of whom were reportedly planning to seek asylum in the US and who’d formed a so-called caravan, from coming across the border. – “We’ve been being invaded for a long time, and so the border states clearly qualify here to utilize this power themselves. And what’s interesting is they don’t need anyone’s permission,” Cuccinelli said. “They can do it themselves. And because they’re acting under war powers, there’s no due process. They can literally just line their National Guard up with, presumably with riot gear like they would if they had a civil disturbance, and turn people back at the border. Literally, you don’t have to keep them, no catch and release, no nothing. You just point them back across the river and let them swim for it.” Wow. Put on riot gear at the border and force migrants into the water. Extreme, much? Sounds a lot like Donald Trump, when he said “treat the rocks as bullets” to the 7,000 troops he moved into place to guard against a non-existent border crisis that he manufactured in November, 2018, in order to get midterm votes. Here’s the State Legislators For Legal Immigration mission statement. – “State Legislators for Legal Immigration has been formed to serve as a unifying force to bring all levels of government together to terminate America’s illegal alien invasion from the Keystone State of Pennsylvania; to every city, community, small town, main street, front porch and back yard; across our fruited plains; and from sea to shining sea,” the group’s website read at the time, drawing from “America the Beautiful.” Demonizing “the other” is the very cornerstone of fascism. Not in the least bit surprising that it is a principle component of Cuccinelli’s worldview. That much was already apparent. Trump only hires the “best people.”
All men are created equal. Some are just more equal than others. Old Joke Most pundits are fond of saying that the 2020 election will be a “base” election. Then again, most pundits, including me, have our heads so far up our asses that we can see our lungs. Reference how many times we’ve all predicted Trump’s certain demise for some stupid thing he’s said or done. But when you come right down to it, every election is a “base” election, who can turn out their base supporters, and hopefully snag a share of the ever dwindling pool of true “independent” or “undecided” voters out there. And 2020 will be no different. But as we all know, raw numbers are not always dispositive. Hillary Clinton garnered almost three million more votes that His Lowness, and yet The Great Pumpkin still occupies the White House, due to the vagaries of an antiquated electoral college system. It’s not always a matter of how many you turn out in electoral politics as where you turn them out. Every time I mention the contention that race is an issue that may not work out well for Trump and the GOP in 2020, I am respectfully reminded in the comments that the use of race is nothing new for the Republicans, in fact, they’ve been thriving on it for more than 40 years. And I have repeatedly agreed with that. But as I remind people, the systemic racism that the GOP has successfully exploited for nearly a half a century comes with a thin veneer of respectability and whitewash to it. Nixon spoke of “law and order,” and Reagan of “welfare queens.” But here’s something else for the race nay sayers to chew on, and it’s something more dispositive. Simple question. If Trump’s vitriolic rhetoric and actions against “shithole countries,” and crumbling, mostly minority large cities, and Mexican drug runners, murderers and rapists are such a 100%, guaranteed winner for the GOP in 2020, hell, even in 2018, then why aren’t more mainstream Republicans in the House and Senate rallying behind Trump with those statements? They aren’t parroting Trump. In fact, they’re fleeing from him, for one simple reason. Because that shit only works for Trump, and with his base. For everybody else out there in GOPland, it’s pure, undiluted poison, and they know it. Race is going to be an issue in this election for one reason, and one reason only. Because Donald Trump made it one. And he’s going to keep right on doing it, to try to keep his base motivated, and the hell with everybody else on the GOP side. But properly used, it can also rev up the Democratic minority base. There’s a damn good reason why Republicans like to claim that Democrats are “playing the race card” all of the time. Because every time the Democrats bring it up, the GOP has just done or said something stupidly racist that they can’t afford to get caught at. A simple reminder. In 2016, Donald Trump won the electoral college by a combined 77,000 votes spread over three states, WI, MI, and PA. A statistical comparison shows that if Hillary Clinton had motivated African American voters in Milwaukee the way that Barack Obama did in 2012, she would have blown Trump out in WI. The same thing with Detroit and Philadelphia. We wouldn’t […]
I swear, I’m not really that big of a dumb ass. But can I help it if every time I reach a totally logical conclusion, some paddlefoot comes clomping in and demolishes the whole thing, like it’s a six-year-old’s sand castle? Although it seems like forever ago in the Land of the Misfit Mango, it was only a couple of weeks ago that I wrote that the battle lines for the 2020 August recess seemed drawn. 2020 would be the Democratic equivalent of the GOP 2009 ACA town hall hijackings. In 2009, activists took over incumbent town halls with screams of “socialized medicine,” and “death panels for Granny!” And that’s the way I saw 2020 shaping up, only this time with Democrats at the helm, storming their own incumbent’s town halls to loudly demand that impeachment hearings begin for Donald Juan Trump just as soon as Congress could reconvene. And early reporting was confirming that premise, with activists charting town halls on calendars, and making sure that activists would be there, GOP town halls as well as Democratic ones, making their feelings on impeachment known. Well, there goes another perfectly good plan, shot to shit. Did you ever notice how hard it is to catch a fly, with the way they keep changing direction on a dime, and never ending up quite where you and the fly swatter thought they’d be? Well, welcome to activism in Trumpmenistan, you gotta be quick on your feet, and you’ve got to be adaptable, because the best laid plans are subject to change without notice. It all began about a month ago. Trump started out with a perfectly sane political strategy of painting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of The Squad as far left ideologues, and trying to make them the face of the “new” Democratic party ahead of 2020. But of course, having the social skills of a honey badger, Trump couldn’t contain himself. He had to make it personal, he had to make it racial, and he had to make it sexist. And when His Lowness told the whole damn bunch of ’em to “go back where they came from,” the racism pot went to simmer. But with Trump, racism is like eating one salted peanut. Next, he had to haul off on House Oversight chair Elijah Cummings, as well as the entire city of Baltimore. And since he was on a roll, he threw in cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. All places, you’ll notice, where he won’t bother campaigning. If it were possible, Trump would have signed executive orders making them independent nations, just so he could refer to them as “shithole countries.” And the racism pot hit boil. And then last Saturday, one week ago today: A white supremacist piece of shit drives 10 hours to El Paso, fuels up with breakfast to make sure his aim is good, an then strolls into a Walmart like he owns the place, and kills 22 innocent people and injures 24 more. His reason? As a retaliation for the immigrant “invasion” turning Texas into a vassal state of Mexico, and as a warning to future invaders. You know, the ones that President Bone Spurs has been bitching about constantly? He referred specifically to it in some racist dung he posted online, […]
Bombshell: DOJ Blocked Report Showing All Domestic Terrorist Events Since 2018 Were White Supremacist...
The handwriting was on the wall November 9, 2016, when the KKK and the neo-Nazis marched proudly in the streets to celebrate Donald Trump’s victory. A few days later, on November 21, 2016, Richard Spencer chaired the National Policy Institute meeting in Washington D.C. The group describes itself as “an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in the United States, and around the world.” That day, the Ronald Reagan building hosted 200 attendees who raised their arms in the Nazi salute while chanting, “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory.” Therefore, it comes as no surprise that Trump’s DOJ, under the auspices of William Barr, would suppress the truth that the rash of domestic terrorism last year was directly traceable to white supremacist activity. David Badash, The New Civil Rights Movement: The Trump administration has known since at least April that alleged white supremacists were responsible for every single act of race-based domestic terrorism in the U.S. in 2018, yet not only took no action to combat the growing right wing violent extremism, but actually substantially reduced or even eliminated funding and programs that combat white supremacist extremism, violence, and terrorism – and then blocked the data from reaching the hands of Congress. “Domestic Terrorism in 2018,” a document [linked to below] prepared by the State of New Jersey’s Office of Homeland Security Preparedness, “shows 25 of the 46 individuals allegedly involved in 32 different domestic terrorism incidents were identified as white supremacists,” Yahoo News’ Jana Winter and Hunter Walker report. […] The report was “circulated” throughout the U.S. Dept. of Justice “and around the country in April just as members of the Senate pushed the DOJ to provide them with precise information about the number of white supremacists involved in domestic terrorism.” The Justice Department, under President Trump’s hand-picked Attorney General Bill Barr, refused to hand over the data or the document to Congress. This is the climate in which we live nowadays. Disinformation and denial of truth is rampant. Fox News makes every effort to soft soap white supremacy as nothing but “a hoax created by the media and the left,” to quote Tucker Carlson. Trumpworld emphatically does not want you to have the facts about white supremacy. Trump, Barr, and the GOP are pursuing a racist agenda, which is nothing new, but it has never been so pernicious as to include the suppression of routine reports and data. Make no mistake, William Barr is doing an information bottleneck at the Department of Justice. Just connect the dots: 1. Trump will not provide witnesses to congress voluntarily. In fact, he admonishes anybody subpoenaed by Congress to ignore the subpoena, and moreover, the contempt citation that follows it; 2. Trump has not turned over a page of documentation requested by the House since the Democrats took control; 3. Trump authorized Barr to give classified information to “whoever he wants, whether it’s his people, or frankly people like Devin Nunes, who is a star.” That’s a quote from Trump on Hannity’s show, July 25. Both Trump and Barr believe in an autocratic view of executive privilege. Barr is selectively releasing information. You recall how Barr wouldn’t release source materials from the Mueller report. Stonewalling of information and simple data that used to be passed along to Congress automatically, is now the […]
As I write this, Trump is on the ground in Dayton, stop one of his “Greatest Shits” tour. Maybe he can stop by and autograph the Trump Baby Blimp, that would be a nice gesture. For four long years now, I’ve long held the belief that the only things that Trump could unite were his upper plate and his lower plate, preferably through the middle of a bacon double cheeseburger. That just goes to show what an incredible dumb ass I can be when I put my mind to it. But it turns out that The Mango Messiah has grown wonderfully into the job of Uniter in Chief. Just cast your mind back a scant month or so. What was happening? Well, Nancy Pelosi was engaged in a school yard pissing contest with the unsinkable Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez, and by association, with the rest of The Squad as well. It was quite the little squabble, and the GOP was lapping it up like a kitten with a pint of cream, gloating about how AOC and her crew were tearing the soul of the Democratic party apart, radicalizing it for the election. And then what happened. Well, in the words of one sage journalist, “The Democratic caucus was in a traditional Democratic circular firing squad, and into the middle wandered Donald Trump, and focused all of the incoming on him.” And that’s exactly what happened. With his racist Trumper tantrum against Ilhan Omar and the rest of The Squad, Trump united not just Pelosi and AOC, but the entire Democratic caucus. Pelosi and AOC held their secret summit, and while I’m sure there are still swollen fee-fee’s on both sides, they’ve buried the hatchet somewhere else but each other, and are presenting a united front against Il Douche. Now fast forward your minds to two weeks ago. The Democratic Presidential primary field, after a couple of debates hosted by CNN moderators who obviously wanted to bulk up their resumes to go along with their applications for spots at FOX News, tore each other apart in front of millions of people. Speed dial to four days ago. Twenty-two people, many of Mexican or Hispanic heritage are murdered in an El Paso Walmart, and twenty-four more are injured. And where does the attention immediately shift? To the racist diatribes of Emperor Numbus Nuttus, thanks in large part to the identical insane rantings contained in the steaming pile of shit that the El Paso murderer posted online within an hour of committing his atrocity. And instantly, every Democratic candidate on the stump is united, locked arm-in-arm against Trump and his hateful, racist rhetoric, which are tearing the country apart. This is what I keep writing about. The election is now less than 15 months away, and you can pretty well set your watch by the fact that on more or less a monthly basis, Der Gropinfuror is going to pull some insane shit that unites the entire Democratic party, along with the rest of the right thinking world, against him. Hey, dog’s gotta howl, right. But now is when every Democratic presidential candidate, as well as all congressional and Senate challengers, should make hay while the sun shines. Get your A#1, top of the line, bestest sound bites ready, and get them caught on camera. […]
