Wingnut Wrapup

Yeah, it's back.  Green Eagle obviously has too much time on his hands.

Let's start the new year off with ...well, with a useless pile of right wing garbage.  What else would you expect from Green Eagle?

Timothy Meads, Town Hall:  "Ted Cruz Calls Out CNN's 'Iranian Pravda'

Managing in two words to accuse the media of being both Communists and Islamists, without having a shred of meaning or evidence.  Perfect right wing speech, and a perfect reason that Ted Cruz is the ideal right wing leader.

Arthur Schaper, Town Hall:  "Mr. President: No DACA, Build The Wall, or No Deal at All!"

No deal at all...evil or nothing.  Should be the Republican motto.

Jeff Crouere, Town Hall:  "Trump Still Standing Despite Media Onslaught"

Republicans are actually proud of the fact that their party, which is the only thing that can do anything about Trump, is just as corrupt as he is.  And what are you going to do about it, huh, buddy?

Katie Pavlich, Town Hall:  "The State Department Has Released Huma Abedin’s Emails From Anthony Weiner’s Laptop"

No phony scandal will ever be allowed to die.  Katie fails to uncover a single thing in these e-mails, most of which were already public, that does anything to support their lies about Hillary, but who cares?  She sure doesn't.

Avner Zarmi, PJ Media:  "Why Are Accused Sexual Harassers Overwhelmingly on the Left?"

Because right wing women get beaten harder if they fight back?  Avner's claim is, of course, a lie, but I'm sure I hardly needed to mention that.

Raymond Ibrahim, PJ Media:  "Media Is Still Portraying Islamic Terrorists as ‘Aggrieved’ Victims"

I won't bother to deal with this in detail, as we all know it's a lie.  Of course, let's not forget that the wingnut media regularly portrays Christian terrorists like the Bundys as not only victims but as heroes.

And how about some right wing "humor," to break things up here?

Man, they are a funny bunch.  Another taste?
It's hard to understand why these guys don't get more jobs writing sitcoms, huh?

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "Trump Crushes Obama in First Year Debt Totals"

Jim forgets that Obama got left an economy by the Republicans, that was on the edge of depression with 800,000 job losses a month, while Obama left Trump 75 straight months of job growth, a stock market that had tripled in value and a deficit reduced by 2/3rds.  I guess that just slipped his mind.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "This is Serious=> Fired FBI Director Comey’s Criminal Actions Could Put Him in Prison"

The lies...they burn...Oh well, at least Comey is doing better than the Podesta brothers:

Before it's News:  "Podesta Brothers Arrested, Tony Podesta Is in Gitmo"

Bet you missed that news too, huh?  Of course, that is just the beginning:

"How about all those involved with the Clinton Foundation or Podesta Group, Uranium One, Russia, campaign financing schemes, election rigging, corrupt FBI/CIA, Obama’s ATF gun running to terrorists via the Mexican Cartel, pedophile rings around the world….and the icing on-the-cake, the attempted coup to assassinate President Trump?"

AND the shortage of Christmas trees this year!  I didn't notice any shortage of Happy Holidays trees, or Chanukah bushes, or Ramadan weeds.  The war on Christians continues!

Christina Laila, Gateway Pundit:  "Suspected Leaker Adam Schiff Triggered After Trump Says He Has “Absolute Right” To Do What He Wants With the Justice Department"

Forget about the bullshit "suspected leaker" part- man, they are getting some use out of that word "triggered," which apparently occurs whenever a decent human being feels any emotion at all about the corruption, treason and criminality of the Trump administration.

Lucian Windrich, Gateway Pundit:  "Daily Mail Calls Gateway Pundit “Extremist” News Source"

How utterly preposterous of them.  What sane person would ever call Gateway Pundit a "news source?"

Jerry Newcombe, Renew America:  "Are Christmas and Jesus "fake news"?"

I'll tell you what's fake news:  Jesus cared about homosexuality, evolution and abortion, while not giving a damn about the poor, the sick or the strangers among us.  That's fake news.  Deal with it, assholes.

Joseph Farah, World Net Daily:  "Thanking Trump has gone viral"

If by that, Joseph, you mean that thanking Trump is a disease, I agree with you.

Ed Straker, American Thinker:  "Does anyone who applies for asylum truly need it anymore?"

Fuck those furriners. 

"Once upon a time, people who applied for asylum in America came from communist dictatorships in Eastern Europe or the Soviet Union and often had legitimate reasons for fleeing...Unfortunately, asylum means something very different today."

See, it used to be that right wingers could use asylum seekers as pawns in their great crusade against Communism. Now that asylum seekers are mainly fleeing right wing dictators and religious fanatics just like the wingnuts, it's time to put a boot in their faces.


She beat Ivanka!  At this rate, by next year she will beat Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Ann Coulter!  What a woman!  Wouldn't it be a little more impressive if she could beat a Democratic woman?

James Delingpole, Breitbart:  "30 Trillion Reasons Why the Green Blob Must Die in 2018"

Oh God, no, is he talking about Green Eagle?  At last count, Green Eagle could only come up with a few hundred million reasons why he should disappear...oh wait, thank heaven, he was talking about killing off all the people that believe in global warming, so everyone else can get about the business of destroying all life on earth without having to be distracted by those liberal naysayers who think that isn't a good idea.

John Xenakis, Breitbart:  "World View: With Islamic State Collapsing, U.S. Forces Will Remain in Syria to Restore ‘Normalcy’

"Normalcy," which is, apparently, life under a brutal dictator who has already precipitated the deaths of half a million people and who is in league with Vladimir Putin.  Of course, nothing wrong with that, right?

And now, a picture of a piece of clothing for sale today at Breitbart:

Just their sort of thing, I guess.  Just put a Confederate flag patch on that, and it will be perfect.

Newsmax:  "Viagra Obsolete: New Replacement Cheaper Safer Faster"

Just in case you wonder what kind of people read these wingnut sites.

Your News Wire:  "Millions Of Iranians Reject Deep State Amid Mass Uprising"

Millions of Iranians, rising up against a fantasy cooked up by the Republican party!  Man, they're more pathetic than Americans.

And if you are still confused about the relationship between these sites and the truth, try this one:

Your News Wire:  "Science Proves Bald Men Are ‘More Attractive To Women’

Right.  And toads are even more attractive to women than men.  Right wing men,anyway.

Baxter Dmitry, Your News Wire:  "3 Attorneys Found Dead In Wasserman Schultz Florida District In 2 Weeks"

No sign that any of them had a thing to do with Debbie.  Still, probably the safe thing to do to throw her in prison before she kills again.

And now, let's go out with a couple of posts from Before It's News, my favorite source of late, as it perfectly predicts what every wingnut will believe absolutely by a year from now:

Before It's News:  "Hillary Ran Terrorists!  Hillary’s emails contained emails to terror cells in Yemen!   These CIA terror cells are now being destroyed by Trump!"

CIA Terror cells!  The Secretary of State communicated with CIA stations in Yemen, which will henceforth be referred to as terror cells!  That proves that she deserves to be thrown in prison!  This same article, by the way, claims that James Comey has been arrested.  Funny that hasn't broken its way into the rest of the media.

Before It's News:  "Luciferians Preparing for Their Alien Savior...The luciferian Deep State prepares for their 70 years in the making trillions of dollars funneled to the Black Budget Program through corporations such as NASA and the UN, all to manifest secret amazing technology and stage their counterfeit second coming alien savior."

Trillions of dollars!  Funny that the guys at Before It's News don't seem to care about the trillions of dollars that Republicans stole from the American people right out in the open.  And if you need any more proof of all this, here is a picture of Pope Francis leading this abominable plot:

Can't doubt photographic evidence now, can you? I guess that's enough to convince anyone.

And let's just finish on this undoubted bit of absolute truth:

Before It's News:  "Dead Sea Scrolls Show Sanhedrin Executed Jesus As An ET Disclosure Activist...Is the Israel the faction behind the national security guardianship of the Dead Sea Scrolls in fear of being exposed by the ETs with the return of Jesus, who is an ET!"
 Jesus?  Who knows for sure?

And you know the worst part of all of this?  What I am showing you is not the really crazy stuff.  That is all in videos which I am not about to transcribe by hand; most wingnuts are only barely literate, so they get their information from endless crazy and hateful videos which exist all over the internet, if you care to look for them.  Maybe some day I'll do a Wingnut Wrapup of those- that will really put you off my blog.

The Press...Still At It After All These Years

Here are some excerpts from a study of media attitudes in the last Presidential election, produced by Harvard*, which is a perfect example of the refusal of liberals to state the obvious truth.  Sorry to beat away again at this subject, but it is killing the country.

"the majority of mainstream media coverage...largely followed Donald Trump’s agenda: when reporting on Hillary Clinton, coverage primarily focused on the various scandals related to the Clinton Foundation and emails. When focused on Trump, major substantive issues, primarily immigration, were prominent. Indeed, immigration emerged as a central issue in the campaign and served as a defining issue for the Trump campaign."

Do I need to say that both the Republican stories of Clinton "scandals" and the allegedly "substantive issues" of the Trump campaign were all a pack of right wing lies?  Here is how that comment should have read, in a fair world:

"the majority of mainstream media coverage was devoted to broacasting Republican lies and smears, rather than attempting in any way to discuss the real issues."

Better?  I think so. Unless you define the word "better" as meaning anything, true or false, that will keep Republicans in power.

"We find that the structure and composition of media on the right and left are quite different. The leading media on the right and left are rooted in different traditions and journalistic practices. On the conservative side, more attention was paid to pro-Trump, highly partisan media outlets. On the liberal side, by contrast, the center of gravity was made up largely of long-standing media organizations steeped in the traditions and practices of objective journalism."

Once again, the simple truth is deliberately obscured in a blizzard of pseudointellectual babble.  That truth being that, in almost all cases, the "left wing media" tries to tell the truth, while the "right wing media" is a pack of liars paid by rich sociopaths to vomit out propaganda.  Apparently, the American people don't deserve to be told the truth, however, because even supposedly left wing organizations like the New York Times have done everything possible to see to it that right wing monsters like Trump are treated favorably, while the lies about people like Hillary Clinton are shoved down our throats every single day.

"Donald Trump succeeded in shaping the election agenda. Coverage of Trump overwhelmingly outperformed coverage of Clinton. Clinton’s coverage was focused on scandals, while Trump’s coverage focused on his core issues."

This is presented, idiotically, as some extremely clever strategy of Trump's, rather than what it really was: the press, which thanks to Reagan deregulation, is overwhelmingly owned by rich Republicans, deliberately did everything it could to see to it that the Republican won, as it does in every single election this country ever has, no matter how grotesquely unsuitable for public responsibility they may be (recent case in point, one Roy Moore.)  The media were not Trump's dupes, they were his collaborators; and until that truth is openly acknowledged, no progress toward fixing the problem can be made.

And if I haven't been clear enough, this means taking media outlets away from the hateful rich people who are misusing them to lie the American people into cutting their own throats, and severely punishing people who use the media to spread lies intended to reduce this country to an oligarchic dictatorship.  And don't come back at me with any arguments about freedom of speech; I know all of that, but none of it changes the fact that if we don't find a way to accomplish this, we are all doomed.  Let's not forget the famous words of Justice Robert H. Jackson in a now-legendary Supreme Court decision:

"This Court has gone far toward accepting the doctrine that civil liberty means the removal of all restraints from these crowds and that all local attempts to maintain order are impairments of the liberty of the citizen. The choice is not between order and liberty. It is between liberty with order and anarchy without either. There is danger that, if the Court does not temper its doctrinaire logic with a little practical wisdom, it will convert the constitutional Bill of Rights into a suicide pact."

And that is what the First Amendment has become in the hands of the Republican party: a suicide pact.

Leading me to about the ten millionth repetition of Green Eagle's First Law:  Democrats could crush the Republican party out of existence without hardly trying; what they cannot do is beat the Republicans and the press working together.

A lot of Democrats are extremely excited over a couple of Democratic electoral victories, and polls showing generic Democrats running far ahead of Republicans in the 2018 election.  God, it takes a supreme act of will to forget the past forty years and realize that the billions of dollars spent by rich sociopaths in the three months before the election to lie about both Republicans and Democrats is going to totally erase that advantage, and we will in all probability be stuck right were we are today: on the road to hell.

And a little update:  Today, Daily Kos had this to say:

"In a colossal media failure perhaps exceeded only by the Iraq war and the election of Donald Trump itself, the GOP swept to power in 2010 despite misleading the nation on almost every major campaign issue of consequence."

None of these was a "media failure," no matter how much you miserable people try to hide from the truth. They were among their greatest successes, since electing Republicans regardless of the facts is what they exist for.  How can decent people ever expect to take power back from these evil monsters when even the supposedly most liberal sources won't admit a truth as obvious as that?

*Shows what they know at Harvard, or at least what they will admit in public.  For the record, I was led to this study by an article at Daily Kos, which was barely more forthright than the wording of this study.

A Year End Thanks

My output of posts has decreased markedly the last year.  As I have mentioned, this is largely because I try to say things that are not what everyone else is saying, and the evils of the last year have been so blatant that you have to be massively adept at lying to yourself not to see what is going on.  At least I can take whatever satisfaction comes from seeing other voices, one by one, making the case that I have tried to make for many years.

Nevertheless, I want to thank those of my readers who have stuck with me during these bleak days.  I really appreciate it.

I am afraid that, in the coming year or two, when the inevitable results of Republican tampering with the economy and foreign affairs begin to present themselves, there will be lots more to say that most people will just be afraid to state openly.  At that point, Green Eagle will undoubtedly be there, for whatever good it does.

Harry and Barry and Trump

So the "news" today is filled with speculation about how Prince Harry is going to deal with his totally understandable desire to have Barack Obama at his wedding, while excluding the narcissist maniac Trump.  Here is what I think will happen.  On his own initiative, Obama will decide that he and Michelle cannot attend the wedding, while at the same time Prince Harry will announce a visit of the Obamas to England and to Harry and Meghan to take place in the very near future.  We know that this is the way Obama, who will always avoid a confrontation when it serves no purpose but to agitate the wingnuts, would handle things, and it enables the wedding to take place with what every sane person would want: a wedding without the presence of one of the most malignant people in the world.

Me personally, I would invite the Obamas and the Clintons, and Colin Kaepernick too.  But then, if you haven't noticed, Green Eagle is not the head of any countries, and this is one of the reasons why.  He actually believes in the Communist notion that you have the right to invite whomever you want to your wedding, without some gigantic jackass causing an international incident over it and spending years putting out mean tweets about you.

And He Makes His Annual Appearance at Green Eagle

What would the season be without a visit from old uncle Cthulhu?  I mean, even Cthulhu deserves a day off at the end of the year, and particularly this time around, when his monstrous plans aren't even as bad as the ones currently being brought to us by our own government. 

Cthulhu is planning on being out in the streets immediately if Trump tries to fire Mueller, and so is Green Eagle and all his friends.  I hope you will be too.  You can find the location of an event near you here.  If you run into someone green at your event, you will know it is one of the two of us, Green Eagle or Cthulhu.  Green Eagle is the one with the feathers, Cthulhu is the one with the tentacles.  If it's Cthulhu, try not to stand in the same place for too long; Cthulhu gets hungry later in the afternoon.

Roy Moore Sinks Further

The Alabama Attorney General has declared that it is now mathematically impossible for Roy Moore to win the Alabama Senate race, but Moore, who is still refusing to concede, hasn't finished sinking further into the moral cesspool where he has lived for decades.  Today, Moore placed the following on his website:
Moore stooped to an evil attack on the son of the man who beat him.  Needless to say, this act could not help Moore in any way, but it did serve as an outlet for Moore's hateful, vindictive character, and leave us with one more reason why even the lunatic voters in Alabama could not stomach him representing them in the Senate. 

And please remember that my comments are not directed merely at Moore, but at a political party that has degenerated to the point where characters like Moore are considered perfectly acceptable leaders.  The country dodged a bullet when Moore was, hopefully, sent into oblivion, but unfortunately it is just one in a hail of bullets being directed at the American people by the Republican party.

Note:  This abomination has now, apparently, been taken down from Moore's website, but here it is, preserved apparently by The Advocate, and making its way here courtesy of Think Progress.

The Biggest Theft

So, the Senate has now passed the Republican "tax reform" bill along a strict party line vote, with every single Republican voting for it (except for John McCain, who was hiding under a rock somewhere, too cowardly to vote one way or the other) and every single Democrat voting against it.  In the House, all but 13 Republicans voted for it, while again, every single Democrat voted against it.

Let me make clear what just about everyone else is apparently too afraid or dazed to say:  This six trillion dollar bill represents the largest theft in the history of the world. 

Any Berniebots or Jill Stein suckers out there still want to spin their yarn about how both parties are the same?

Green Eagle's Culture Corner

Green Eagle, crass bird that he is, just realized how long it's been since he took a few minutes to bring you the best in American art.  Well, it's Christmas time, and what better time to be uplifted by the work of a great artist.

The last time Green Eagle thought to do this, was to bring you the magnificent art of one Jon McNaughton, who you may remember from such wonders as the following painting, featuring Barack Obama crushing the Constitution with his foot, while George Washington seems to be busy trying to catch his cat:
Beautiful, and so uplifting.

But apparently, according to Before It's News, McNaughton has been superseded:

"David Dees… The Most Important Artist Of Our Time...David woke up to the matrix and decided to use his talents to free humanity one image at a time… and thank God for that… imagine how his talent could have been used against us had he sold out.  David Dees has had the courage to take on the controling elite and their New World Order program of world domination and expose it like no one else has."

Boy, after that, I am sure you are hungering to see this Michelangelo-esque work, and who is Green Eagle to disappoint you.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Ah, the Rothschilds, and (apparently) their little dog too.  Not quite sure what the dinosaurs are up to, but I'm sure it isn't good.

Working on climate change- just like shooting giant bolts of red lightning into your brain- how meaningful it all is now.

And vaccines, of course.  What would lunatic conspiracy mania be without that?   And let's just finish things off with this one:

Get the subtle message?  Obama is a secret Jew, because you have to look really closely at his tie to see the Jewish stars, unlike Joe Lieberman, whose Jewish star is really obvious.

And there it is, a very representative selection of works from The Most Important Artist Of Our Time!  Well, at least the writer didn't have the nerve to pass this pathetic jerk off as the best artist of our time, since he paints like a cheesy illustrator for a pulp magazine.  But (and believe me, I could show you plenty more) he doesn't miss a beat in the area of lying hatred, which makes him so important.

Well, Green Eagle hopes that this excursion into the world of Fine Art has been a pleasant interlude to all of you.  Now, back to the evil attempts to destroy our country by removing a traitor from the White House before he can give the whole thing away to a foreign dictator.  Sheesh, at this point, it almost seems like a relief.

And a Little More:  I just stumbled across this painting today at Hullabaloo.  I'm just wondering if it was done by the same guy.  What do you think?

Wingnut Wrapup- You and the Horse You Rode In On Edition

And for the record, a collection of the excuses and whining from the right after their beloved child molesting criminal and bad horse rider Roy Moore lost his Senatorial race in Alabama (!) where Reinhard Heydrich could have won if he had been against abortion.  Really, pretty much exactly what you would expect, but here it is:

Matt Vespa, Town Hall:  "GAME OVER: Democrat Doug Jones Defeats Republican Roy Moore In Alabama; UPDATE: DRUDGE Says Luther Strange Would Have Won In A Landslide"

So would have George Washington, or since this is Alabama, the dug-up corpse of Lester Maddox.  Too bad the Republicans didn't run one of them instead of a child raping right wing racist.  But I guess Moore was their choice.

Brad Slager, Red State:  "Wolf Blitzer and CNN Throw a Rave for the Doug Jones Victory"

So did every decent person in the country, Brad.  With you guys in charge, decent people don't get much chance to be happy.

Jon Street, Red State:  "Roy Moore’s Loss Is a Win For Republicans"

Keep telling yourself that, Jon.

Bill Mitchell:  "Ok guys, strangest election I've ever seen. Roy Moore had leads of 12 and 8 points wiped out almost instantly. Huge chucks of uncontested votes coming in for Jones as he outvoted Moore by 70,000 votes in the final 35%. Very sketchy action in a red state."

Very sketchy.  Right, Bill. That's not the way the vote went as far as I saw on Tuesday night, but maybe you were counting the absentee ballots just discovered in a box from Nazi Germany.

Raru, Red State:  "Alabama just voted for an evil pro-abortion-on-demand nutcase. The Republican party is now dead."

Well, let's hope the last half of that is true, anyway.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "ALABAMA ELECTION RESULTS: Judge Roy Moore Against “Lynch Mob Media”

And here's the results:  Roy Moore 650,436, Lynch mob media 0.  Roy Moore Wins in Incredible Landslide!!!!!!!!  Oh wait, Roy Moore wasn't running against the lynch mob media, he was running against Doug Jones.  Sorry, Roy lost. Someone tell Jim, so he can move on to his next lie.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "GOP Spent $500,000 to Defeat Roy Moore"

See, the Democrats didn't win, the Republicans won!  I knew that had to be the story.  Everything is good news for Republicans, even having their own loathsome candidate defeated in the most Republican State in the country.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "Democrats, Smear Merchants, Liberal Media, GOPe, Mitch McConnell, Sen. Shelby, FINALLY Get a Win! Doug Jones Wins Alabama"

You know what, Jim? Everybody in America got a win when Roy Moore lost.  Deal with it.

And the usual from the Gateway Pundit comment section:

"Vote fraud is the ONLY way for the corrupt establishment to cheat Moore. Period." 
"They have to see how many votes they need to add in at the end to win it for Jones." 
"OANN called it (for Moore) because they are using honest numbers. They didn't account for this kind of fraud. There is no doubt this is what the democrats are doing." 
"NO doubt the Dems cheated. I bet we find out that folks from Mississippi voted, that dead people voted and that thousands of Roy Moore votes weren't even counted - Democrats cheat at everything they do." 
"Congratulations Judge Moore!  Now strap on your armor and head north to kick McConnell’s teeth in."

Just be sure not to fall off your horse on the way.

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker:  "Al Franken lost big in the Alabama Senate race"

And here I didn't even know he was running.

Charlie Sperling, Breitbart:  "Donald Trump: ‘Deck Was Stacked’ Against Roy Moore"

Yeah, the deck was stacked by Moore being a racist child molester who believes in slavery and taking the vote away from women.  How unfair.

Donald Trump: "The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right!"

Because, see, Trump is always right, even though he also supported and campaigned for Roy Moore, whose views are almost identical to Trump's, including his views about his right to abuse women.

Breitbart:  "Doug Jones is overwhelmed on his 25th wedding anniversary. He thanks the African-American community that delivered for him. He says “Happy Hanukkah” to all of his Jewish friends."

Dog whistle loud enough for you?

 Mwa-ha-ha!!  And here's one now, outside the Roy Moore campaign headquarters.

And here I thought it was the voters who flipped the seat to the Dems.  Sorry, I should follow politics more closely.

Amber Randall, Daily Caller:  "Black Women Overwhelmingly Voted For Doug Jones"

No shit, Sherlock.  Wonder why that happened.

Guy Benson, Town Hall:  "Anatomy of a Stunner: How Roy Moore Lost an Unlosable Race in Alabama... the number one reason Doug Jones will be a US Senator -- hands down -- is that many traditional Republican voters either wrote in a candidate, crossed over for Jones, or (and this was the big one) sat at home"

Shocking!  Translation:  Moore Lost because less people voted for him than for the Democrat!  Who would have ever figured that one out without the assistance of the wingnut media?

Star Parker, Town Hall:  "Let's Liberate Blacks From Left-Wing Politics"

Yeah, let's liberate Blacks from all politics, or else they are going to vote for Democrats, because Republicans are a pack of hate filled racists.  Star Parker is Black herself, but that doesn't stop her from being liberated from common decency.

Kurt Schlichter, Town Hall:  "11 Things Every Real Conservative Should Ask On A First Date"

You mean, like, "Aren't you a little old to be dating a 14 year old?"

Ann Coulter, Town Hall:  "Why I Secretly Wanted Moore To Lose: Brooks 2020!"


"Reverend" Mark H. Creech:  "The real motive behind the opposition to Judge Roy Moore...This is really why the left hates Moore and will do whatever it takes to diminish or discredit him. He's an affront to the new guard – the new morality meant to supplant biblical values."

Biblical values like hatred, racism and greed.  Man, I am so sick of these Evangelical perverts pushing their sick "religion" on us.  80 percent of white voters who self-identified as born-again or evangelical Christians voted for this corrupt pervert...76 percent of everyone else ― those who didn’t identify as white evangelical Christian ― voted for Jones.  If you need a perfect example of why we want to supplant Evangelical "values," there it is.

And let's just finish with this spectacular specimen of not-at-all-fake-news:

Matt Vespa, Town Hall:  "(Moore) took a swipe at the media for their coverage of his campaign. Moore was bombarded with stories about improper sexual conduct with multiple women. These incident occurred when the accused were teenagers."

Well, slap me upside the head!  And here, I thought "the accused," (i.e. Roy Moore himself) was in his thirties, and the victims were teenagers!  How could I have let myself be so deluded by the lying press?

I Don't Get It

Well, I was clearly dead wrong about the Alabama election.  I have to say, I don't get it; this was an absolute must win for the Republicans.  Alabama is one of the most Republican States in the country- if Dems can win there, they can win anywhere, and we all know it.  After the recent string of Democratic victories in other State elections, this represents a blast of momentum going into next year's election that the Republicans should find terrifying.  Republicans have always counted on leaving so many liberal voters so discouraged that they just don't vote because they think the system is so rigged against them that it is useless.  Well, they know that isn't true any more, and I think you are going to see people turning out all over the country because of this election that would have just stayed home otherwise.

And the Republicans know this perfectly well.  Of course, the Alabama voting commission hasn't certified the results yet, so who knows what dirty tricks the Republicans can still come up with, but right now, that looks like a long shot. 

I have to admit that I don't know what happened here.  Were they so sure that they had as much chance of losing an election in Alabama as Putin would of losing in Moscow, so they didn't really do a good enough job of preparing the cheating?  We may never know the answer to this question, but Roy Moore's loss here could end up being a gigantic turning point for the corrupt dominance that Republicans have exercised for so long; after all, money can buy a lot, but it still takes votes to win, and when a party reveals what a nauseating sinkhole of criminality it is, maybe even the Koch Brothers' money can't buy a ladder long enough to climb out of the hole.

Still Think Doug Jones Has a Chance to Beat Roy Moore?

Well, read this story:

"State Supreme Court stays order directing Alabama not to destroy voting records...

Digital ballot images are essentially digitized versions of the paper ballots Alabamians fill out in the voting booth. In Alabama, these digital images are destroyed once an election has passed, according to Duncan.

"People think that when they mark the ballots and they go into the machine that that's what counted," she said. "But it's not, the paper ballot is not what's counted. That ballot is scanned and they destroy [the ballots] after the election ... If there's ever an election challenge you need to have what was actually counted."

I have believed for some time that there is not a chance in hell that Doug Jones will be declared the winner in Alabama, no matter what the real outcome of the vote is.  The Republicans have experienced an unprecedented series of defeats in recent elections, and they absolutely have to stop the bleeding here and now, before it really takes on momentum.  They cannot let Roy Moore win, and this is true even disregarding the fact that they need his vote to pass their tax theft bill.  A victory in Alabama is the red line that Democrats cannot be allowed to cross, so the Republicans will do anything to prevent Jones from being declared the winner.  So the evidence of who voted and which way will be destroyed before you wake up tomorrow, and that will be that.  

Democracy, Republican style.  Good enough for you, buster.  Now move along  and shut up.

Sunday, December 10, 2017


Something that just occurred to me yesterday:  You know how they say bullies are all cowards inside?  Well, here is the perfect example.
So, we know that this sick son of a bitch has been fomenting a war against North Korea for months, presumably because starting a war would be the biggest distraction possible when the irrefutable truth of his treason sinks in to the American people (if it ever does.)

Well, as I am sure you saw, a couple of weeks ago, North Korea launched a missile which is said to be capable of reaching Washington, DC.

Trump did not care a shred, of course, that if he started his war, hundreds of thousands of Koreans and Japanese citizens could die to provide a distraction from his crimes, but God forbid that there should be one thousandth of a percent chance that a missile might fall on him personally. Yes, folks, the Most Powerful Man On Earth has been beaten down and made to run for cover by a fat thirty year old punk with one of the most obsolescent armies on earth.

So all of a sudden it's all about how we have to have talks with North Korea, and the attention of the White House has totally turned to fomenting violence in the Middle East, where there are also millions of people who can be killed without Trump caring a bit.  And let's face it, the Palestinians, who have managed to fire ten thousand missiles at Israel without hitting a thing, are unlikely to be able to target the White House or Mar a Lago.  So here is our new enemy!

"Oceania was at war with Eastasia. Oceania had always been at war with Eastasia."-George Orwell, 1984

It would be pathetic if it weren't likely to kill a couple of million people in order to protect one loathsome criminal from the consequences of his actions.

A little note:  I haven't been posting much lately.  Partly that is because of work, but mainly because of something I have said before:  I like to try to say something that everybody else isn't saying too.  And the crimes of the Republicans are so blatant these days that there is no shortage of people talking about them.  Anyway, this post is an exception, because I haven't heard anyone suggest this line of thought yet.  I'm still here when I think I have something to add to the conversation.

Low Class

"Trump Says Owning Pets Is ‘Low-Class’

I hear Trump is planning on a trip to England soon.  I would love to hear him explain that theory to this lady:

Dead to Me

Kirsten Gillibrand, Mazie Hirono, Claire McCaskill, Maggie Hassan, Kamala Harris, Patty Murray, Tammy Baldwin, Bob Casey, Sherrod Brown, Joe Donnelly, Debbie Stabenow, Heidi Heitkamp, and Ed Markey.

What do these people have in common?  They are all wasting the public's time and what little power the Democrats have left in trying to destroy Al Franken over the most minor abuses, while the Republicans in Congress and Donald Trump openly work to turn this country into a fascist dictatorship.  Apparently, whether Franken touched some woman's butt is more important than the destruction of everything that it was supposed to mean to be an American.

How does this witch hunt do one thing to protect Americans from the greatest internal threat that has ever faced this country?  And how does proving, once again, that they will collapse in the face of even a half-hearted display of Republican outrage, show that they have the strength of character necessary to stand up to the Republicans?

I am particularly saddened to see Sherrod Brown, who I have supported so strongly over the years, on this list, but there he is.

I don't want to hear one word out of these people until they show that they have the minimal intelligence necessary to separate the real threats to this country from a pack of Republican baiting.  Democrats who will cave in as soon as the Republicans start howling are pretty much no better than the Republicans themselves.  In fact, I don't think I have a shred of interest in them, no matter what they have done in the past.  They do not have the capacity to lead us out of the danger we are in.

No matter how malignant the Republicans are, I never gave up hope.  At least until this.  Now, I think I do have no hope.
