CNN: White House tried to bully FBI into denying Trump-Russia stories


In the ongoing saga of Trump and his deep ties to Russia, a new wrinkle. According to CNN, the White House tried to put the kibosh on stories published last week concerning evidence that there were in fact ongoing communications between Trump’s associates and Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. This is, in the words of… Continue Reading →


Republicans are only good at destruction

Goddess Kali Protima At Diwali, India.
The Goddess Kali.

This is what they’re up to. Again:

Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s reclusive chief strategist and the intellectual force behind his nationalist agenda, said Thursday that the new administration is locked in an unending battle against the media and other globalist forces to “deconstruct” an outdated system of governance.

In his first public speaking appearance since Trump took office, Bannon made his comments alongside White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus at a gathering of conservative activists. They sought to prove that they are not rivals but partners in fighting on Trump’s behalf to transform Washington and the world order.

“They’re going to continue to fight,” Bannon said of the media, which he repeatedly described as “the opposition party,” and other forces he sees as standing in the president’s way. “If you think they are giving you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken.”

Atop Trump’s agenda, Bannon said, was the “deconstruction of the administrative state” — meaning a system of taxes, regulations and trade pacts that the president and his advisers believe stymie economic growth and infringe upon one’s sovereignty.

“If you look at these Cabinet nominees, they were selected for a reason, and that is deconstruction destruction (EDITOR’s NOTE: THERE, FIXED THAT FOR YOU!),” Bannon said. He posited that Trump’s announcement withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership was “one of the most pivotal moments in modern American history.”

If you follow this sort of thing carefully, you know that Bannon is mostly full of shit, prone to hyperbole, self-flattery and puffery. (Like most career drunks, he is prone to grandiosity.) That does not mean he isn’t dangerous. He is telling the truth that the nominees were carefully chosen to blow things up, and he really does believe in making us over into a white Christian nation. (You know who else believed that, right?)

And after all, a habitual, slovenly drunk only has so many jobs for which he can bother to haul his ass out of bed in the morning. Oliver Cromwell-lite is probably the best he can hope for.


Last night’s town halls

People are so, so angry. But I have to say, Indivisible has given people the right tools to organize their districts. Great turnout, good preparation. And no matter what these Republicans say about outside agitators, they know better. I hope they’re scared shitless:


Iowa voter to Grassley: ‘You’re gonna create one big death panel’


Senator Chuck Grassley had a rough town hall this morning, where he was (finally!) confronted on the horrible policymaking that Republicans are indulging themselves in. A middle-aged man stood up and informed Grassley that he was on Obamacare. “If it wasn’t for Obamacare we wouldn’t be able to afford insurance,” he explained. “With all due respect… Continue Reading →


CPAC had a rough time letting go of Milo

You would think that it would have been easy to dis-invite bigoted, misogynistic, child rape promoter, banned Twitter asshat, and resident of Breitbart Milo from speaking at their event for a hundred obscenities, but CPAC really had a tough time doing it. We think free speech includes hearing Milo’s important perspective. #CPAC2017 – Matt Schlapp… Continue Reading →


Pat Toomey’s fake town hall

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), who has very little interest in meeting with his constituents, scheduled an online town hall yesterday with one hour’s notice. On a weekday, in the middle of the day.

People are very, very angry with him. If you want to know why, you can listen to this recording. Christ, I just can’t believe the bullshit this guy slings.
