Would Body Slamming GOPers Be Considered Positive Cultural Appropriation?

Part of the corrupted GOPer organization is defending Montana Republican Gainforte’s body slamming of a Guardian journalist.

Rush Limbaugh: ‘Studly and manly’ Gianforte beat up ‘smug and arrogant’ reporter

That must mean it’s A-Okay to start slamming the shit out GOPers. Count me in. It’s positive cultural appropriation.

The GOPers seem to think that political violence is fine. As long as they’re the ones being violent. What are the odds they will snivel like little snowflakes when the violence comes at them?

Trailer Park Diplomacy

The trailer park where the GOPers find their voting base is probably very proud right now. With this crowd ignorant buffoonery is held in high regard.

Andrea Mitchell: Trump’s Lecturing of World Leaders at NATO Was ‘Painful to Watch’

So long as they can look down on LGBT and people of color it’s all good.

DeVos says school choice means no gay families

We really should let the trailer park hillbillies and corporate devils form their own country before they destroy us all.

It’s Becoming A Simple Matter Of Self-Defense

They will take your healthcare. They will take your kids healthcare. They will dump coal ash in your water. They will pump fracking poison into your water. They will trap your children into student loan debt slavery. They will start wars you want no parts of and send your poorest children to fight and die for them. In short: They will bankrupt, enslave and poison you and your children, without the slightest hesitation. How long do we put up with this? How long?

And it looks like half of them are happy to work with a foreign government while they’re trying to undo you and your family and the planet we live on.

Jared Kushner and the pious GOPer devils

Like many GOPers Jared Kushner is a pious, Godly man. He makes a point of advertising that he observes the shabbat. Apparently he’s also a notorious slumlord who preys on the weak and vulnerable.

The Beleaguered Tenants of ‘Kushnerville’

Jared Kushner’s Other Real Estate Empire

Poor people can’t really fight back, they can’t afford lawyers and they can’t afford to take off work for court appearances so they’re pretty easy to torment and steal from. If you don’t believe me just ask Jared, he’s a pro at it.

The Failing And Diseased Deep State

The real deep state isn’t the intel community who appear to be justifiably at war with Team Trump. The Real deep state is Robert Mercer and the Devos/Prince clan, and the Koch brothers. The people in the 1%er club are the real deep state.

Trump’s Secretary of Eduction, Betsy DeVos, comes from a family that is drowning in money. She’s pushing to end the already nearly impossible task of student loan forgiveness. She’s also pushing to move public education into a for profit venture. All her actions seem to be designed to help the rich get richer. The rich in this country are already extremely rich. How much do that want? What is their end game?

10, 9, 8… KABOOM!

Daaaaaam. It’s almost as if someone wanted to scramble Donny’s head while he was on a high visibility trip overseas. There will be no hiding while he’s abroad.

This is just day one and this afternoon we learned:

Trump Reportedly Told Russians That Firing ‘Nut Job’ Comey Eased Investigation

Wow, a gratuitously nasty admission of obstruction. Nice.

Paul Ryan’s Dysfunctional Family

Paul Ryan thinks it’s a good idea for his family to keep their sicknesses and abuses a secret. Keep it in the family. Russians influencing American politics– Shhhhh. Don’t tell anyone, kids, that’s how we know we’re a family.

It’s another illustrative example of the dysfunctional GOP family values. This is a very, very sick family.

The Russian Stress Test– Maybe We Should Thank Them

America is the throes of an existential crisis.

Putin decided to sow the seeds of confusion and chaos in the West. He has succeeded, probably beyond his hopes. Of course, as every former KGB agent or wannabe Lago from Othello knows, to sow chaos you only have to exploit existing divisions and weaknesses.

Putin’s plan succeeded so bigly because the divisions in America were so gaping before he even started exploiting them. The Rightwing media has stoked those divisions by feeding their readers and viewers a steady diet of delusion and resentment and ‘us versus them’ mentality. The Left has contributed to the divides by tacitly embracing neoliberal economic policies which have fueled the increasing economic inequality and anxiety.

What Are The Odds Things Get Ugly Once Trump Is Out Of The Country?

All things considered it’s been strangely quiet today. Since moving into the trauma-zone after November 9th, quiet almost makes one as jumpy as hourly horrors and scandals.

Well, here’s an interesting theory of the Big Situation from Paribotics:

Dear Mr. Putin, Let’s Play Chess

A related opinion piece from The Hill:

Our democracy is crumbling — and Putin is smiling

It’s been quiet today, but no day is devoid of intel leaks with President Ass Clown in the White House, and in a normal world anyone of these would be the headline for days, now we consider this the background noise of a quiet day:

Yes, It Has Begun

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed a special counsel, former F.B.I. Director Robert Mueller, to investigate the Russian hack of the 2016 election and “related matters”.
