Five Years

This news from the Washington Post this morning: " Ex-IRS contractor who leaked Trump’s tax returns sentenced to 5 years" Five years in prison for daring to let the American people know that their sitting president was a common thief. As to Trump himself, who, as this leaked information helped reveal, stole tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars from the IRS and the American people through a decades-long criminal scheme, well, no prison time for him, and so far he hasn't had to pay a penny in penalties for his theft. Seems about right to me, I guess. The judge in this case (unbelievably appointed by Joe Biden) had this to say: "U.S. District Judge Ana C. Reyes said Littlejohn had “pulled off the biggest heist in IRS history” He stole some documents.  Bigger than the hundreds of millions that Trump and his family stole, I guess. "Justice Department officials said Littlejohn’s disclosures were unprecedented in U.S. history." Not unprecedented, I guess

Wingnuts Slightly Annoyed about that $83 Million

How can you look like a decrepit old geezer and an out of control two year old at the same time? I thought it might be nice to look in on wingnut world to see how they are taking yesterday's $83 million dollar Trump legal loss.  You kind of know that they will decide it shouldn't affect their opinion of him in any way, but it might be helpful to see just how the Republican party has trained them to reject any fact they don't like.  Not that surprisingly, a lot of the usual wingnut suspects didn't touch this loss at all, preferring to just ignore anything that interferes with their hateful daydreams, but here are a few excerpts from an article at Gateway Pundit, along with a sample of the hundreds of comments it received.  Enjoy.  Or not. "Trump attorney Alina Habba WENT OFF after the crooked New York City court slapped President Trump with an $83 million judgment for speaking out against the disgusting lies of a crazed woman who said he lured her into a Bergdorf Go

My Analysis of the New Hampshire Vote

I'll make this brief.  In Iowa, Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis got about 22% of the vote each.  Trump got about 52%; i.e. he beat them by 30 points each. So, DeSantis dropped out.  My guess at that point was that Trump and Haley would pretty much split DeSantis' 22 points, giving each 11 points, so the final result of the New Hampshire race should have been something like this: Haley: 33 points; Trump 63 points.  Instead, of course, Haley got 44 points in New Hampshire, and Trump only managed to weakly pick off 2 points from DeSantis's voters, coming in around 54 points. To my mind, this is a colossal failure of momentum.  It is not that this violent man and the hate-filled base that supports him could barely bully his own party's voters into giving him more than a bare majority, but that, as I think is obvious, something has gone seriously wrong with his march to the White House. As miserable as the mainstream press has been at even honestly presenting the horse race sid

Staggering International Dishonesty about Hamas

 Here's an interesting bit of information about the United Nations and Hamas: "Despite the presence of a Hamas terror tunnel system in the Gaza Strip now thought to be larger in scale than the London Underground, the United Nations insists it had no idea the tunnels were being built. UNRWA alone has 13,000 employees in more than 300 facilities across Gaza. At least a dozen other U.N. agencies operate in Gaza. It has been well-documented that many U.N. employees in Gaza have professional and personal ties to Hamas." This is one of the most grotesque lies ever told.  It is clear that various UN agencies both knew perfectly well about these tunnels, and collaborated with the genocidal killers of Hamas to hide the fact.  Just keep this in mind when you are subjected to the inevitable, endless smears of Israel that come from UNRWA and other UN agencies which have been totally corrupted, and now support the most evil groups in modern history. And it is not just the UN.  Amnest


 I'll tell you a little thing that drives me crazy.  The way Trump has intimidated or conned reporters, politicians, just about everyone, into calling him MISTER Trump.  I hear this almost every time he is mentioned on the news or anywhere else.  Nobody ever called Barack Obama "Mister Obama," or called Bill Clinton "Mister Clinton."  We rarely ever heard of Mister McCain or Mister Bush or Mister anyone else, but somehow, this subhuman maggot has to be dignified by always being called Mister.  It's just one more example of him bullying everyone in sight, demanding respectful treatment that he is the last person in the country to have earned. Well, enough of it already.  I know the press doesn't have the honesty to refer to him as a raping, thieving traitor every time they speak about him, but stop with the "Mister" already.  Just calling him Trump grants him more honor than he has ever earned.

Gallery of AI Insanity- Part One: Fat Muslim Ladies on Scooters

I once lived in Israel (for a job, not out of any religious belief) and consequently I follow what is going on there pretty closely.  I get a lot of stuff about the Middle East online, from both sides of the conflict  Among this material, for some unknown reason, I have been bombarded lately with endless AI images of one sort and another on Facebook.  Many are political fabrications, many are intended humorously, but there are some others that have me totally puzzled.  I would like to show some of these images and ask if anyone out there can really explain them, other than as specimens of a culture steeped in some really hateful form of perversion, and totally out of control.  What I am going to post here is a tiny fraction of what you get if you make the mistake of hovering over any of them for more than a second.  The first group is of morbidly obese women in some sort of burkas, riding on motor scooters, usually carrying baskets of eggs.  Here they are: Some contain other things tha
