Michael Flynn to Q-Anon group: "I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can't happen here?"


Here is video of former general and National Security Advisor Mike Flynn calling for a Myanmar-like coup to replace the sitting U.S. president with Donald Trump. The talk of war is very real.

Dallas Sunday

To be clear he is calling for the army to overthrow the Presidency of the Republic and shoot anyone down who resists the coup.

Myanmar recently be like:

Over 800 protesters dead and 4500 detained for having the temerity to protest the illegal overthrow of the duly elected president.

A retired general of the USA Army is calling for that... There must be some legal recourse for this shit?! Can someone be court marshalled once they have retired? For bringing the army into disrepute maybe?

One of patriarchy's greatest myths...

Exactly this.
Auditioning for what amounts to benign neglect in many cases and expected to be thankful for it. Heh.

Boris Johnson says "I do", but in a very specific and limited way

Boris Johnson's wedding vows exclusively revealed

A Downing Street official told us, “It is perfectly normal for a high-profile couple to get engaged, telling everyone including the media they’re doing it, and to then get married in secret just days after some pretty damning negative press.

“I should also point out there is no truth in the rumour that Boris demanded a ‘quickie’ marriage after someone said he could declare all gifts and loans in the last couple of years as ‘early wedding gifts’.”

Meanwhile, we have gained exclusive access to Boris’ wedding vows, which he had drawn on a flash card next to a childish doodle of some boobs:

“I, Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson take thee, the third one, to be my current wife,
forsaking most others,
to have and to hold from this day forward until such time as it is no longer convenient,
for better, and only better,
for richer, and much richer,
in sickness (as long as it’s not one of the bad ones),
to love and to cherish, till something better comes along,
as long we both shall live comfortably.”


The timing of this wedding could not look more dodgy!

The Daily Mash actually predicted this happening in a satire piece on the 27th...


You literally could not make this shit up.

Meet me in the middle

There was never going to be a commission. Since the day President Obama entered office McConnell has been a picture of the unjust man. Add to that the practical matter that the accused man would much prefer to avoid the trial that will expose their guilt. Right? Voting to stand in front of the firing squad of public opinion based on their actions and the actions of their colleagues and voters, they were never going to vote for that. And when a special committee is formed they will try to spin it into the woke, communict blm and antifa trying to suppress the freedoms of the real patriots, while chanting the big lie ad infinitum.

The enemy of our enemy is not necessarily our friend

I was just watching a catch up on youtube of LPTV with Rick Wilson and they were chatting about the Paul Ryan speech (before it happened) and what they want to see from him. And then Rick Wilson said this, and I am paraphrasing... that prior to 2015 and Trumps coup of the Republican party, that Paul Rayan was the poster boy for compassionate conservativism.



Ayn Rand fanboy, fiscal hawk and the chap that advocated spending cuts to help finance the Trump tax cuts, including $2.1 trillion in spending cuts over ten years to Medicaid, Affordable Care Act subsidies, food stamps, Social Security disability insurance, Supplemental security income, and cash welfare, is an excellent example of a compassionate conservative?!?!

Shut the front door on your way out.

White Supremacy 101 having a mighty deplorable anti-semitic week of nasty 👀


When white supremacist aren’t somewhere busy explainin’ what black people think, they’re usually somewhere else explainin’ what Jews think.

"I think any rational Jewish person didn't like what happened in Nazi Germany & any rational Jewish person doesn't like what's happening with overbearing mask mandates."

I asked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene about her comment comparing mask mandates to the Holocaust @12News

How lovely. Nazisplaining to Jews re the holocaust and mask mandates. Oh my!

Oh and Meghan has great anti-semitic fun times equating attacks on American Jews with the actions of a state 1000's of miles away cause Israel and end times and being really crap at gothca.

All so very very Nazi this neo GOP...

We are all trade experts now.

Spare a thought for the trade experts reading this piece in The Sun this morning.
It’s the post-Brexit greatest hits of trade spin.
“Win, win, win, more jobs, higher wages, lower prices, hard-working families, cheaper wine.”
Even James Bond & WWII get a mention

Farmers the next occupation being thrown under the £350 million pound a week brexit bus. Surprise!
Literally shameless propaganda. Free trade deal to get shitty new world wine and beef farmed with really dodgy standards for animal welfare... sooooo much winning in Global Britain. But, hey, look at the dead cat from 25 years ago over there folks 👀
