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.
So, today we have Chief of Staff Priebus out. Or, ‘Rancid Penis’, as Moochie calls him, or was that Bannon? Hard to remember with this jackass, clown car administration who was making what peeny joke.
Here’s a little blast from Reince’s groveling past, did him a lot of good:
Here’s a good piece by Eugene Robinson that seems about right:
Also, here’s the moving and important testimony from Bill Browder that’s seriously worth the read if you want a better understanding of the Russian nightmare infection we are now facing.
And the Russians seem not to like the unintended consequences of their Trumpian active measures. This thing looks to be blowing up in their face. Tough to game out the Russians, but we may want to start trying.
And one more thing– If we do get to the other side of this horror show, the cops, the wretched cop situation in Murka has to, absolutely has to be dealt with. The cops work for us. No citizen should be in fear of the cops. Today Trumpy was trying to make more poisonous distractions by firing up cops for violence. Yay. Cops cheering about committing violence on their fellow citizens is as much a symptom of a serious disease as Boy Scouts booing a former president. The state is gravely ill.
Stay in the light, Sisters and Brothers.
