Don't take what I say too seriously...I'm a dumb-ass.

Just a plug for a movie airing tomorrow...Deadwood

Not a TV watcher. Don't even have cable now for five years, but I have to put a plug in for a movie airing tomorrow on HBO called Deadwood. You will consider it time well spent. Cheers...heading in for the graveyard shift.

Candidate John Delaney gets booed for trashing Medicaire For All

The former Maryland congressman was giving a speech on the importance of “smart policies” when he zeroed in on health care.

“Medicare for All may sound good, but it’s actually not good policy nor is it good politics,” Delaney said, to which the crowd immediately responded with loud boos.

“I’m telling ya. I’m telling ya,” Delaney tried to say over the booing while wagging his finger at the audience. “We should have universal health care, but it shouldn’t be a kind of health care that kicks 115 million Americans off their health care.”

Pretty sure calling Medicaire For All 'socialism' is a disqualifier for me. Thank you for spreading right-wing taliking points.

*Warning* The Hill is linked in the article and I avoid them as right-wing propaganda.

Chomsky and Herman's Propaganda Model Foretells a Weaponized Facebook

The personal is now public. Consider Facebook. As the global leader in platforming interpersonal interactions with public discourse across boundaries, Facebook enjoys a virtual monopoly in reflecting power.

Facebook’s massive global reach gives the platform immense influence to shape public perception, awareness and opinion. Notably, one of the platform’s creators, Chamath Palihapitiya, did admit that the team “knew something bad could happen,” having “created tools that are literally ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.” Still, public awareness of this subterfuge has changed nothing.


A conceptual model of the late 1980s can help pry apart the puzzling performances of this anti-social behemoth.

Don't succumb to the culture of fear

What if Pelosi, et al. can build Trump & the GOP's misdeeds into our road to the Senate?

How long did the Watergate Hearings take? I think a year or more. Note I didn't say Nixon Impeachment Hearings, but Watergate Hearings. The crimes are being revealed daily now to those willing to dig...soon they will all become major narratives as long as investigative hearings continue. Pelosi will continue pounding Dem's message on the great legislation they're writing and the Republican Senate is refusing to take up. Pretty soon the evidence piles up to the point until it's drowned out all other conversation. But Pelosi doesn't give McTurtle the opportunity to create a kangaroo trial in the Senate and vindicate Trump, as he would do. Then Dems make sure every eligible voter in America knows that the tool necessary to remove Trump and the racists and the anti-abortion lunatics from control is to take back the Senate. Just my thought (fantasy) for the day...

'Why Were You Loaning Trump Money When No Bank Would Touch Him?'

During #DeutscheBank arguments in Manhattan federal court yesterday. Attorney for Congress asked Deutsche Bank officials who were there, 'Why Were You Loaning Trump Money When No Bank Would Touch Him?'

Would love to be in that courtroom. I wonder if the great State of New York has any money laundering statutes on the books...I believe they do.

.@maddow in Federal Court yesterday during the Deutsche Bank arguments, according to Mr Leonard, it's not just Trump, Jared and his whole family, there are NINE other redacted cases of Russian oligarch money laundering nobody knows about yet, if I heard that correctly.


*I just happened to catch this on the feed from this post

don't have any more info than that...looking forward to hearing more.

Update *

I was in the courtroom yesterday during the Deutsche Bank arguments. They pretty much said Russian Oligarchs money laundered through Trump and Jared, I think he will act crazier and crazier to get out of this, he knew the argument was WEAK and what was coming. It's over


US Elections Commission Member Helped With Sketchy Fraud Report

Court Docs: US Elections Commission Member Helped With Sketchy Fraud Report


Before he was named by President Trump to the U.S. Elections Assistance Commission, Donald Palmer, a former GOP-appointed secretary of the Virginia State Board of Elections, assisted in the creation of sensational voter fraud reports that prompted a defamation lawsuit, documents released in the litigation Friday revealed.

Palmer helped devise an approach to collecting certain voter registration data, which was then used to claim that there were thousands of noncitizens on Virginia’s voter rolls and that many of them had voted, according to the documents. He also helped edit a draft of the report, and he additionally flagged for his collaborators that a Virginia state election official who was resisting turning over the data had previously worked for a civil rights organization.
