About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

Barrett concerned about public perception of Supreme Court

Because of course she is. 👀

Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett expressed concerns Sunday that the public may increasingly see the court as a partisan institution.

Justices must be “hyper vigilant to make sure they’re not letting personal biases creep into their decisions, since judges are people, too,” Barrett said at a lecture hosted by the University of Louisville’s McConnell Center.

Introduced by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell who founded the center and played a key role in pushing through her confirmation in the last days of the Trump administration, Barrett spoke at length about her desire for others to see the Supreme Court as nonpartisan.

Sure Jan

So Texas and the like were not the plan all along? Right? Is the new definition of non partisan under his eye?



Meanwhile...



Can you have a non partisan theocracy!?!?! Heh.

The STUPID is out of cray cray control

There’s a campaign backed by influential QAnon figures encouraging people to call this Chicago hospital.

Hospital says it has received hundreds of calls, some threatening that have been referred to police.

Lin Wood, who still has a law license, called up a hospital, introduced himself as an attorney, and told the operator they’ll be charged with murder because they refused to dispense Ivermectin to an anti-vaxxer pal of his who got COVID.


I am sure that there are many anti-vaxxers who know that horse and sheep de-wormer is never a good plan for dealing with the effects of the virus, or as a preventative for catching the virus. Your run of the mill round the world thinking anti-vaxxer, if you will. But then there is the next level anti-vaxxer who will punch a breast cancer survivor in her scars, protest vaccine sites and lose their shit at school board meetings. It was almost inevitable that the Q unstable end of the anti-vaxxers would end up here...

When medical staff refuse to do bad science, now they are murderers, cause anti science crowd are literally dying, cause well funded Q enablers are spreading anti life propaganda, cause death cult.

Got it.



The STUPID. IT BURNS. LITERALLY

All of the gammons could not be more predictable this morning

Racist wanker decides that you are allowed to be British after all if you are a winner


Racist bully decides that Emma winning means that his racist bullying during Wimbledon was a success and tries to own the win


They are so gammony that they are unable to see the utter hypocrisy in their positions.
Don't they realise that she owned them and their shitty little englisher nasty, not that they in some way own her victory. Silly rabbits.



And for the bonus point Oliver Downdon congratulating the channel 4 / amazon deal for the match, as he is actively working to dismantle channel 4. Because of course he did.



A Tale Of Texas Duplicity in Two Acts

TEXAS - YOU CAN'T TELL BUSINESSES WHAT TO DO



ALSO TEXAS



I mean seriously - how do these wankers keep a straight face when pulling this opposites shit, all the time...



They wanted a fascist demagogue all along


Graphic mine

Trump was always right up their fascist street, which is why they still suck Trump dick until today, while they look you straight in the eye as they support insurrection and white supremacist terrorists, while they shit all over the constitution and push disenfranchisement across the red wall. It is not because they are scared of him, they are him – they have always been fascist at the core. Kuchel had a handle on that over ½ a century ago and nothing has changed the intervening period – other than they are much more in your face blatant fascist fuckers, even in what passes for polite society.
You reap what you sow… and they grew Trump in all his orange horror. They love him. All of them. He is what they have been building up to for a very long time…

When you give the Taliban the opportunity for downward comparison you know you have gone too far...



Ouch!

Also Texas
...this Texas abortion ban goes beyond even these material questions about health care access. It cuts right to the heart of the struggle defining our era, between a secular, pro-democracy majority and an authoritarian minority who wants to force its racist, theocratic view of America on the rest of us.

Heh,

Trump's Plot to Steal Arizona Was Even Wilder Than We Thought

On Tuesday the Arizona Senate finally complied with a court order to hand over its private communications with the people involved in running the audit. The massive trove includes communications that suggest former President Trump wanted to fund it, that Trump’s allies were involved from the start, and that conspiracy theorists involved in the recount worried about threats from antifa and Black Lives Matter. Oh, and workers were paid as much as $125 an hour.
---
Christina Bobb, a reporter for the right-wing, pro-Trump station One America News (OAN), was one of the most visible figures during the audit, securing coveted interviews with those involved and gaining access to the count floor while other outlets were blocked.

But Bobb’s involvement went further. Together with OAN White House correspondent Chanel Rion, she set up a dark money fundraising group called Voices and Votes to raise money to fund the audit.

Emphasis mine
Much more detail at the link

Of course Trump is all over this!
Of course the cray cray worried about BLM and antifa violence - we all know how they project their nasty hate filled hearts onto everyone else, it it literally rule one in their handbook!
Of course they were paying themselves $125 dollars an hour. These are the same people who expect everyone else to work for a minimum wage that has not increased since God was a boy. Thee not me, rule number two.
Of course Trump looked at Fund the Audit as described in the article and of course he did not actually contribute to the fund. Trump rule number one, someone else ALWAYS pays.
Of course Trumps team was all over it from the beginning, cheaters gotta cheat, right? Grifters gotta grift.
Far right nazi 'news' site not only reporting on the propaganda, but funding it? Because of course they are!

They really are a bunch of Nazi democracy stealing loons, aren't they?

Performative Sorrow 101

And we all know the GOP loves the mind of a murdering tyrant... heh.

Mary Trump on How Republicans Turn FEAR into ANGER to CAUSE CHAOS!! BRILLIANT BREAKDOWN!!!



Take a minute to listen to Mary Trump brilliantly explain how Republicans convert their followers' fear into rage in order to stoke chaos and hold onto power.


How the neo GOP have turned their followers (irrational) fear into rage - and how can you contain that? Hint, you can't and ergo the chaos. Excellent analysis IMO.

Dispatches from the Cray Cray


My Dad is a hard core Trumper. He’s not full on Q from what I can tell, but regularly gets info from someone whom I assume is. I get these “warnings” on a pretty regular basis. I can usually just ignore them as ramblings of an old man, but I just can’t today. I’m angry, disappointed, annoyed, and just done. I haven’t seen him or my mom for months. I rarely talk to them anymore because of all this crap. It sucks. I don’t understand the hold that Trump has over my dad. But it’s definitely put a wedge between us.

I think he may be full on Q tbh. This is actually terribly sad. I think we might be the pestilence in the biblical reference?

My liberal decoder ring has failed on the government alphabet agencies... dammit.
