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?

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

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 rea

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 direc

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 Or

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:  &quo

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 trick

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


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 armie

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 Republ
