It’s Time To Have A Talk About Robert Mercer- by Molly

A first glance Robert Mercer appears to just be another super rich Rightwing donor, who happens to have been intimately involved with getting Trump elected and with many of the people now running of the Trump Administration, but even a shallow researching of Mercer will lead you to a very strange and dark place. First things first. Robert Mercer is an extremely wealthy and powerful person, so here’s a disclaimer: This piece is purely opinion. Opinion.

You can not look at Mercer without seeing the deep flaws of our economic system and how some people are able to exploit those flaws with mathematical precision. If you look into Mercer and company you have to see that our economic system is at a crossroads right now. A crossroads where technology and mathematical theory meet. You can not look at Mercer and company without being struck by what a dangerous and precarious point we are at with regard to our economic system. I don’t think I’m exaggerating at all. Stay with me and you’ll see what I mean.

The US military budget is a threat to National Security

The United States is turning into the Mississippi of the rich nations. Like Mississippi the US ranks at or near the bottom in almost every category of well being.

U.S. Ranks 23rd Out of 30 Developed Countries for Inequality

The Numbers are Staggering: US is `World Leader’ in Child Poverty (in “Developed” Countries)

Besides leading the way in child poverty the US also leads the world with the largest, by far, defense budget.  Against this backdrop Trumpy and the GOPers have decided that what the country desperately needs is an increase in defense spending:

Beware The Ides Of March Round-Up

Trump’s giving his big speech tonight. We’re expecting it to be a toxic masculinity train wreck around here. The good news is the GOPer’s are going all in on the Trumpy train wreck. They are helping to drive this train and they’re already slap fighting in the driver’s seat:

Speaker Ryan faces crucial stretch

McConnell: The Republican Agenda is “exactly the same as the Trump agenda”

And a dire aside from Jimmy Carter:

Jimmy Carter: The US is an”Oligarchy with unlimited political bribery”

One Leaky-Ass boat

Funny stuff. Spicer calls an emergency meeting for the leaking White House communications shop. There’s already lawyers waiting in the meeting room and everyone is instructed to put their phones and any other electronics into a basket so it can all be checked. Sounds like a healthy work environment. Oh, and news of the meeting leaked right after it was over.

They got problems. Serious problems. Happy employees don’t leak.

Interesting also is that the comm shop had to be warned about using apps like Confide, which encrypts text messages and then auto deletes them, and Signal, another encrypting messenger. They got real problems in there. And the harder you squeeze down on situations like that the worse it gets. High anxiety.

The First Bitter Tears Of Betrayal

Everyone who has supported Trump, everyone who collaborates with Trump, and the Right more generally, is going to be betrayed. Take it to the bank.

Trump, and the Right in general, does not care about the so-called ‘forgotten man’, the white working class, or any other color of working class or poor or anyone at all who is not safely in the top tax bracket. If you had to say just one good thing about the National Populist movements in Europe, like in Poland, and I’m loathe to do so, but if you had to, it would be this: At least they haven’t gone all austerity-cut-social-programs insane, in fact they’ve done the opposite and increased spending on social programs, which has probably helped to dampen some of the protests. The American version of National Socialism is, in very American fashion, a pyramid scheme. There will be no generosity for the working class or poor in America’s National Socialism.

Anthony Bourdain Can Fuck Right Off

Anthony Bourdain Slams ‘Privileged Left’ For Their ‘Utter Contempt’ of Working-Class Americans

I’ve had enough of Anthony. As has already been said: There’s plenty of criticism to level at the Left. Plenty. Anthony is not being helpful and, I think, just being a weasel.

More about how mean the Left is being to the Yokels who brought us Trump. Fuck Anthony and fuck the Yokel Right. Anthony says: “…we deny them their basic humanity and legitimacy of their views…” But Anthony always seems to forget to, you know, kind of outline “their views”. what our “their views”, Anthony?

Formal Declaration of War- by Molly

The Zombie Right in this country has been at war with us- with the Left, the progressives, Americans who believe in rational government based on just laws- they have been at war with us for a long, long time. We, and our elected leaders, have deluded ourselves into thinking that we were negotiating and compromising with people who were acting in good faith. That has not been true for maybe as long as 30 years.

Remember how even Bill Clinton was hounded by Special Prosecutor Ken Starr and impeached by men who were themselves having affairs and lying about it? Remember? Remember how they threw out the special prosecutor law as soon as George W. Bush was put in power? Remember?

Resistance Endorses Keith Ellison For DNC Chair

Resistance endorses Keith Ellison for DNC chair because we believe Perez, who seems like a decent and hardworking and honest Democrat, was put forward by the establishment wing of the Democratic Party to ensure that large parts of the DNC remain within the status quo. The status quo has proven deadly to the Democratic Party and possibly American democracy in the general. A radical structural change is required, change that puts power back in the hands of the average citizen; power that is taken back from well-heeled donors; change that turns the DNC from a fundraising operation into an effective headquarters in the battle for America’s soul.
