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....

BEST off-the-cuff line of the night

BEST off-the-cuff line of the night

Zing a ding ding

Oy, Republicans, just so ya know...

We see your behaviour @ the impeachment hearings, and...

Just Sayin’

Time America did the world a solid...

Trump has so much to answer for, and the list grows longer every day. The rest of the world watches as he changes the very fabric of what America means on the global stage with his weird mix of isolationism and interventionism very harmful foreign affairs ‘strategies’. We see that MAGATs are proud of his dangerous and unhinged decision making. How they continue to willingly have the wool pulled over their eyes is beyond me, but their callous disregard of the harm that is being caused by this administration, internationally, tells us everything we need to know about these fanboys and the fact that they could not give one shit about anything or anyone but those exactly like them.

With Trump in the White House, the Republicans refusing to rein him in and his cultists actively refusing to recognise what madness this administration is, we are faced with the truth that right now America is nobody's 'friend' and is, rather, possibly, everybody's enemy. We acknowledge that Trumps narcissistic personality disorder means that there are no win-win situations with him, only "I win if you lose" and that is so very dangerous when he gets to play on the world stage. It is not an overstatement to say he is a real and present danger to the rest of us.

America, time to do the world a solid and get rid of Trump, it is not like he has not given you enough rope… Think of impeachment as a sparkly happy splendid gift to the everyone on planet...

Cheers in advance!

PS I know it is a tight timescale but if you could get it done before the 2nd December when he is due to visit that would be ruddy marvellous!

Toxic masculinity is killing the world.

Exactly this..

Elizabeth Holtzman on Nixon, Trump and a very good point...

What happened? Saturday Night Massacre. That moved the House because the American people said, “We’ve got to do something.” The American people didn’t know exactly what that something was and whether it was impeachment, but they thought we’re not going to have this kind of system anymore. It was a different story from now. Nixon won in an overwhelming landslide. Trump squeaked through. Americans won’t have to change their minds about him. Americans had to change their minds about Nixon. That’s a very big deal. And they did. And I think in response to what Barney said about Nancy, I wasn’t making an attack on her. People have forgotten that what happened during Watergate was a process of educating and persuading the American people and Congress at the same time.


Emphasis mine.
Trying to educate and persuade is harder in a post truth world, but the numbers are easier to swing... there is hope here...

Who would'a thunk it?!?!

Heh. Such a glorious way with words.

The 20-Second Smoking Gun

On Twitter today, Trump supporters were taking victory laps because Elise Stafanik was able to get two witnesses to state that they heard no mention of extortion, bribery, or withholding of military aid. If you watch those 4 minutes of questioning, you’ll hear some sound bites that Republicans will surely use to “prove” Trump’s innocence.

Except that they didn’t.

Second of the two clips..

Hhhhmmmm Bribery anyone?

The official @WhiteHouse Twitter account is now basically a shitposting dumpster fire


The official @WhiteHouse Twitter account is now basically a shitposting dumpster fire one would normally find being run by FreedomEagle1776RollTide

The solemn dignity of the office....good grief. Where the fuck are the grown ups? Never mind how ridiculous this is and how disrespectful... are there not any grown ups anywhere in the White house?

This elderly Northern lady has just produced the best joke on Brexit to date

For those looking for a fun one to add to their list of dinner party lols, here it is:

Did you know that Oxo have brought a new cube out for Brexit?

*Wait for someone to kindly humour you by responding that no, they did not.*

Do you know what it's called?

And then... the punchline:

Laughing stock.

Pompeo: "I'm proud of what this administration has done with respect to Ukraine. We reversed the...

...massive failures of the Obama administration.”

Everyone else with two or more brain cells knows that...

Obama failures are as in ...fuck all, none, nadda, zero…

We were not witness to one example of...

o indictments
o ethics issues
o personal & business financial grift
o investigations
o affairs
o witness intimidation
o quid pro quo, blackmail, extortion
o kissing the nasty arse of totalitarians 101 aka Russia, NK, & Turkey/Syria
o embarrassing the entire country
o emoluments issues
o denials of climate change and withdrawal from climate accords
o questions of integrity, character, ethics
o delusional lying
o nazi rallies
o putting others in danger with his rhetoric
o constitutional issues
o the world laughing @ the supposed leader of the free world for being a complete and utter simpleton

....yeah, we will take Obama any day of the week. Fuck off you sycophantic enabler of a half wit bastard.
