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....

There is a new brand of fake tan on the market...

Whatever he does and wherever he goes he is never going to escape the terribly awful fake tan or the impeachment. On the bright side did you know that in the UK use of sunbeds has dropped by 2/3's since Trump became President... I wonder why?...hhhhmmm

I am going for hope today and this should not be impossible... right?

Freedom is not freedom without the freedom for all of us to make diverse choices about who what and why we are. Inevitably this means that communities that exist side by side will sometimes differ in opinion on the best way to get stuff done, which can create a certain level of disagreement… in any successful democracy this is a necessary part of our governance, otherwise we would all be living in one party states. In the universe of normal, pre-Trump and pre-Brexit, everyone understood this, as nations we had a common solidarity, one with the other, about who what and why our nations were what they were. There were certain values and belief systems that bound us together outside the nuts and bolts of left, right, centrist, defending our constitutions being a case in point.

We know that there are values that should never be sold, and lines that should never be crossed. Right now, we are governed by arseholes that have erased those lines in favour of populist right wing demagoguery. We know that authoritarians of all stripes force alternative facts on the populace with the intended purpose of divide and conquer across communities. And bloody hell, aren’t they being effective right now?

However, this is where the hope comes in. This complete and utter lack of conscience and consideration for others separate those who lead us from the majority. They are sociopaths and I have to believe that the mainstream is not. The more they pander to the worst among us the more people with any modicums of humanity are going to have their eyes opened to what who and why they are. Of course, there are always going to be those that suck up the bullshit, but we have to hope that when it comes down to it these are not a preponderance of the population. We have had a bumpy ride in recent years, but taking our countries back is not impossible in the least, right?

No other republicans on the primary ballot but he still lost... priceless 👀

Donald Trump is the only name on the New Hampshire Republican ballot. Despite that, he just lost Dixville Notch to Mike Bloomberg, as a write-in. #NHPrimary

They bussed those pretend republicans in right? Can't be real republicans!!!!
Let this be the message from this district, not the Bloomberg democratic nod, which is rather dispiriting...

This poster says it all. Genius Truth Telling...

All of this. Superb.
I think I am in love with whoever created this.

Stable Genius Say Coronovirus Will 'Go Away' In April

How many Republican members of Congress would like to hang from the end of a rope until Donald Trump did or said something that brought better healthcare to Americans?

Monday the stable genius told a group of governors at the White House that the coronavirus, which has killed over nine hundred people and infected over 40,000 is going to go away in April. Because it will be warmer weather in April. No, really.

DONALD TRUMP: A lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat. As the heat comes in. Typically that will go away in April. We're in great shape, though.


Well that is all right then, the moron in chief has declared it, ignore the health experts from around the world, he might as well, he ignores experts on everything else. of course, while he is actually articulating this bollocks, public health initiatives to try and restrict the spread of the virus will no doubt go unsupported by this administration. That is concerning for everyone. Over by April my arse... and the worst of it is, without comprehensive free at the point of use healthcare the most vulnerable are at the most risk from very bad outcomes as this virus continues to spread.

George Conway: Trump is right. We might have to impeach him again.

If this were a criminal investigation, and Alexander Vindman and Sondland had given their testimony to a grand jury, this Friday Night Massacre could have been a crime. At the very least, it ought to be impeachable: If Richard M. Nixon was to be impeached for authorizing hush money for witnesses, and Trump himself was actually impeached for directing defiance of House subpoenas, then there should be no doubt that punishing witnesses for complying with subpoenas and giving truthful testimony about presidential misconduct should make for a high crime or misdemeanor as well.
And he’ll only get worse. Narcissistic leaders such as Trump always do. As we’ve now seen, his rage leads to retribution and misconduct, which beget more criticism, and more investigation, and even more rage, retribution and misconduct. Over and over again.

So America beware: The state is Trump, and he’s very, very angry. We might, indeed, have to do it again.

Emphasis mine

And again and again and again. As many times as it takes. He is an outrage.

Vindictive wanker behaves like a vindictive wanker? Surprise!

Sondland and Vindman were both planning to leave — but Trump pushed them out early to humiliate them: CNN

According to CNN’s sources, both Sondland and Vindman “had seen their standings diminished significantly after they appeared before Congress and under subpoena” during the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry, which prompted them to begin planning their exits.

However, sources described as “familiar” with Trump’s thinking said that the president “didn’t want them to go quietly,” despite pleas from advisers and Republican senators to not create a public spectacle by firing prominent impeachment witnesses.


He is just so fucking petty...
I have no sympathy for Sondland of course but for the CIC to break the law for childish point scoring, against people standing up for the rule of law... November cannot come soon enough. Bloody big man baby.

She really should smile more...

Not so much opium for the masses, more like venom for the foul...

One of the reasons that the horror that is the republican party gets away with their hypocritical, ethic free, glory be, religious nasty is that for those saps who fall at the feet of the new republican ‘messiah’ (at this point Trump) the religious right uses their wrapped in a flag of false patriotism, coupled with the narrative of gods own country, to sell tickets to a white supremacist heaven… Oh my, spot the obviously obvious social construct to keep their followers in line. For the leaders that surround the throne of the false god in the white house, they, through intended misinterpretation of scripture and wilful and blind arrogance, do terrible things in their eagerness to secure themselves power in this world, and an afterlife of splendour. They need their warped interpretation of the fundamentals of Christian theology to excuse their worst excesses of behaviour, and in this way, the bastardisation of the ideals of a faith and the promise of rewards in the afterlife is not just used as a way to control behaviour that is outside societal norms for their base, but actively encourages it…

If there is a judgement day, they are in for a world of pain… burn baby burn.

This is not even the end of the beginning, folks

Who pays the price? Is he having a laugh. the whole world pays the price every bloody day. November is going to be a very long time coming... and then it will quadruple in intensity as he ponders his life without the lapdog protections of those willing to allow him to break the law when he was a winner - when he loses they will drop him like a hot potato... He is unhinged...
