It’s Only Wednesday

Big lies, small lies. Trumpy is an unmitigated lie machine.

Trump says Boy Scouts thanked him for ‘greatest’ Jamboree speech, but group unaware of that conversation

Mexico denies president called Trump to compliment immigration policy

Fox News State TV looks like it’s got caught in a full blown bullshit tornado. Oh, and Trumpy may have put himself right into the middle of it, probably after he got done dictating junior’s lie statement about his meeting with Russian operatives:

No Fun Club: Moochie’s Out And Web Oppression’s In

Moochie, we hardly knew ya.

CNN’s Jeff Zeleny: Sources Claim Scaramucci Was Escorted Off the White House Property

Governmental restricting and controlling of the web is quickening. What will you do when it comes to us? Closing down VPN’s (virtual private networks) seems to be the Autocrat’s new favorite way to shut down the open web.

Welcome to Xi’s Net: Where Politics, Porn and Pooh Are Forbidden

Apple kowtows to China, pulls some VPN apps from Chinese App Store

Putin bans VPNs to stop Russians accessing prohibited websites

The Existential Clown Car Round-UP

Someone was talking to me about long term plans recently and I said: “Like, God cleanses the earth with fire long term, or just until The GOPer’s catastrophe begins?”

It’s impossible to know whether the people working in the Resistance are midwives or hospice workers at this point. It probably doesn’t matter. The actions are pretty much the same: Minimize pain and suffering and work for the practical good.

It’s hard to keep your footing in this, as Alternet writer Jefferson Morley put it, “increasingly surreal news cycle”. Very difficult.

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.

How’s That Faith In American Democracy Going?

What a real shit show we got going on here, huh Murka? Wow. Trumpy gets the Boy Scouts to boo a former president and Secretary of State. Is there some sort of merit badge for that? Lookin’ good, Murka! Whoa, and chanting “USA! USA!” like regular full grown fascists. Very impressive. That didn’t take long.

Today we’ve got the corporate fascists continuing their never-ending effort to take healthcare away from millions, with an MVP move coming from a senator who will leave his hospital bed, where he just received top shelf, tax payer funded care, to vote to take that care away from others. Vomit inducing hypocrisy doesn’t even phase them at this point.

Every Time You Turn Around, Trump’s Got Another Russian Dick In His Mouth

Come on, man, this is just getting unseemly now.

You proud, GOPers? This is your idea of a glorious leader? In the end the Right’s vision of a powerful, manly American leader turns out to be a worn out Russian prostitute. Ironic, right? But so, so fitting.

Sounds like Donald Trump discussed the Pee Pee Tape with Vladimir Putin during secret second G20 meeting

Mysterious 8th person at Trump Jr. meeting allegedly ran massive Russian money-laundering scheme

Murka Has Done Took A Wrong Turn

But don’t fret none– All roads lead to that ‘Come to Jesus’ moment sooner or later, so, one way or ‘nother, be awight.

Murka has done took a wrong turn. Probably started when she genocided the natives. Got even worse when she decided to enslave the Africans. Got a whole hell lot worse when she took Mammon as her God. Actually, that may be where the whole thing starting going off the rails in the first place. Don’t believe the hype, Murka never was a Christian nation. She has always worshipped Mommon with all her heart, mind and soul. From the very beginning. Remember Thomas Jefferson said a lot of sweet words about ‘liberty’ and ‘being endowed with inalienable rights by our creator’ but he said all those things after the genocide of the natives had already begun, and while he personally owned human beings as property himself– so take it all with a grain of salt.
