Nope, You’re Not Going Crazy– This is All Completely Insane

I’ve noticed, since this nightmare began seven or eight months ago, that strong, intelligent people who I have great respect for are, periodically, breaking down. I’ve seen it. If that sort of thing is happening to you– don’t panic. You’re not alone. In fact, at this point it seems to be a sign of sanity, decency and humanity. I’d be more worried if we weren’t having periodic emotional collapses. But we’ve got to keep it together. Double Down Don and his GOP toads are not going to go gently into that good night.

Reichstag Fire Countdown…

The scapegoating of brown, black, muslim, and LGBT people– we’re pretty far down that path.

Yesterday when CNN’s Acosta asked Trump about the violence in Charlottesville, Trump called him “fake news” and walked out. The ‘fake news’ campaign to undermine the press has been going on for a long time but it looks like it’s reaching a new, more brazen level.

Trump to CNN’s Jim Acosta: You’re fake news

So, attacking the ‘fake news’ or ‘lying press’, lugenpresse as they used to say in Germany– yep, we’re pretty far along on that one.

You Really Want To Fight Nazis?

It’s true, we’ve got proud, swastika toting nazis marching down American streets right now. Let’s be honest, though, these guys found their voice and courage to come out into the light as a reaction to our first African-American president. It seems like a lot of the Republican’s gains were due to white reaction to the changing demographics of America. They are extremely dangerous and violent, and in all likelihood will become more so, especially if Trump is removed from office.

Just Another Saturday In Trumpistan

This is Trump/GOPer’s base. They’ve spent years coyly cultivating and dog whistling these people. They’ve been playing this game for a long, long time.

Another Neurotic Weekend In Trumpistan

Trump’s go to news source, Fox and Friends (Geezus):

Fox and Friends: ‘There is merit in a pre-emptive strike on North Korea’

Trumpy really seems to love the attention he gets from threatening annihilation.

Trump threatens Venezuela with ‘military option’

Just another weekend in Trumpistan. Lock the doors and curl up with a truckload of xanax.

Suicidal Impulses

It kind of feels like there’s some people in our country who are hoping for an existential war right now. It feels like its that same suicidal impulse that helped elect our current Jackass in Chief.  America may be going through some disturbing suicidal ideation at the moment.

I mean, threatening nuclear war on twitter… My dude, Really?

President Trump tweets warning about ‘powerful’ nukes as cabinet members try to cool North Korean threat

Seriously, this guy’s got 30+% approval rating? Who the fuck are these 30%? Whoever they are, they are a serious threat to themselves and others.

Let’s Play ‘The Game’

This kind of speculation can get you into trouble, but it’s probably worth trying to game this thing out a bit just to get a rough idea of what the terrain is like up ahead.

Now we know that the Mueller investigation is further along and widening  out more than we might have previously guessed.

White House as crime scene: how Robert Mueller is closing in on Trump

Exclusive: top FBI officials could testify against Trump

Flynn looks to have his ass in a serious sling here. You have to wonder what the hell the guy was thinking. Not only that, but our old friend Robert Mercer and his creepy as hell Cambridge Analytica company is right back in the thick of bad acts, yet again.

Today Has Been One Long Damn Year

Things move very fast on the battlefield. The bizarre ACA Repeal vote that went down tonight was the strangest, most dysfunctional theater of evil I’ve seen in long, long time. In the end Republicans McCain, Collins and Murkowski, and all the Democratic Senators holding strong, defeated the bill 51-49. Damn close. And they’ll be back. Soon, I’m sure.

Here’s Ezra Klein’s succinct take on our completely dysfunctional government:

I do not know how to convey how appalling the GOP’s healthcare process or policy is

I Love Moochie!

Anthony Scaramucci is a little ray of sunshine in this dark, dark world. He’s like a coke fueled Jersey Wop bomb thrown into a fireworks factory. Thank you, God, for Moochie!

“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,”

This New Yorker article by Ryan Lizza just does not stop delivering the comedy. This is great stuff:

Anthony Scaramucci Called Me to Unload About White House Leakers, Reince Priebus, and Steve Bannon

“Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,”

FYI: We Are At War

We are at war. It’s war all around us.

It’s cold comfort that the Rightwing Zombies are shooting at each other. Trumpy seems to want to gain some cred with the uber Right knuckle-draggers before he takes the axe to Sessions (the knuckle-draggers love Sessions because he’s a high ranking bigot), and, of course, Trumpy wants to fire AG Sessions so he can install a shill who will fire Special Investigator Mueller. Got all that? So, to gain respect with the drooling racists (i.e. “Christians”) he can kick trans people. Easy enough. Plus there’s rumors this also helps him get some kind of border wall fence votes out of pious bigots in the congress. It’s a two-for: turns out good old fashion Christian cruelty is a very lucrative game these days.
