and if Tucker Carlson's racism and misogyny wasn't enough

Carlson: "Well I like you too, and I mean that. You always say, 'I mean that in a non-fag way,' but I actually mean it in a completely faggot way."


Tucker Carlson called Iraqis "semiliterate primitive monkeys"

That means Tucker Carlson is 100% racist and there is no way to spin it as anything else

Read and hear about his other racist remarks here


Trump meets the Biblical definition of "wicked"

"The state of being wicked; a mental disregard for justice, righteousness, truth, honor, virtue; evil in thought and life; depravity; sinfulness; criminality."

Yet the fake religious Americans love and support the guy. They even have him autographing their Bibles



Remember Cohen lied to protect Trump

Cohen didn't lie for his own benefit. Just remember that when traitors/liars like Sarah Sanders does some preemptive character assignation

For weeks the corporate controlled media has been headlining the antics of a crazy actor

Yet when it's discovered that a MAGA Coast Guard terrorist was plotting to murder all the top elected Democrats- DEAD SILENT

"liberal media" my ass

America doesn't realize how much troubling material the Senate has found

(THREAD) CBS just spoke to the REPUBLICAN chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee—now entering its third year of investigating Trump-Russia ties—and what Richard Burr has to tell America should decimate any lingering skepticism about Mueller. I hope you'll read on and retweet.
1/ Here's the link to the CBS interview. Skeptics reading this thread—who will be stunned by what they read—should understand that the interviewee, Republican Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina, was on TRUMP'S NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM as of October 2016.
2/ CBS notes that the Senate Intel Committee is entering its third year of a bipartisan Russia probe *despite* intense pressure—particularly from Burr's fellow Republicans—to wrap up its work. That alone is telling: that the Senate majority on the Committee is resisting stopping.
3/ QUOTE #1: "[Burr] acknowledges now that the investigation is broader, and perhaps more consequential, than it has long been thought to be." So America doesn't realize how much troubling material the Senate has found—or how far-flung and important to our future the material is.


No insults for you

Criminal GOP donor Sheldon Adelson bribes Trump & GOP with over $122 million to ban online gambling

Sheldon Adelson, chairman and chief executive officer of Las Vegas Sands, and his wife Miriam spent more than $122 million during the 2018 midterm elections on behalf of Republican candidates. That was more than any other outside spender, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington-based research group.

The Adelsons in October also gave $500,000 to a legal defense fund set up to help Trump aides caught up in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether the president’s campaign committee colluded with Russia, Internal Revenue Service filings show.


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Warns Loss Of Journalists Will Send Democracy Crumbling

Social media queen Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) used her Twitter platform to defend journalists amid a series of sweeping layoffs across the media industry.

In a Saturday tweet, the freshman congresswoman cautioned that “the biggest threats to journalism right now are tech monopolies & concentration of ownership,” advocating for “high-quality journalism.”

Without a diversity of news outlets, she warned, “our democracy will continue to crumble.”


Trump Loses on Wall and Declares Victory

In a rambling Rose Garden statement, Trump still held out the threat of another shutdown when this bill runs out on Feb. 15. He also suggested he could invoke emergency powers to build his wall if the conference committee doesn’t come up with the funding. Neither is very likely. Support for Trump’s position has collapsed among Hill Republicans after Thursday’s votes demonstrated his weak position, and as the air traffic control system started more visibly eroding Friday morning. Given that, it’s hard to believe that Senate Republicans would shut down the government again, only to find themselves in exactly the same situation.

As for emergency powers, if Trump believed they were a good way to get what he wants, he likely would have already invoked them. It’s not just that there’s a very good chance the courts would reject him. Or that he would further alienate those, including many Republicans, who would consider it an abuse of power, an accusation Trump has to be particularly careful about as indictments of his former associates multiply. The even more immediate problem is that money spent by constitutionally dubious edict by the president without congressional appropriation has to come from someplace, and there are strong constituencies that will be very upset if he tries to take it (as has been floated already) from regular military spending or disaster relief.

Once again, the lesson is that government shutdowns are not some magical trump card that one side can play to force the other to surrender. In fact, as the third extended shutdown in U.S. history comes to an end, it’s obvious that whatever the ethics of harming the nation in order to win a policy battle might be, such a maneuver is entirely ineffective as a negotiating tactic. And yet Republicans -- the Newt Gingrich Republicans in 1995-1996, the Ted Cruz Republicans in 2013, and Trump and his supporters in 2018-2019 -- keep trying anyway. One would hope they have finally learned how futile it is.

Granted, this time, it seems to have just been Trump personally who thought it was a good idea, perhaps egged on by a few House Freedom Caucus members. Other Republicans believed (correctly or not) that they were simply trapped into going along. Perhaps they were right; maybe if they had ended this in December or in early January Trump would have turned his scorn on them and caused them greater political trouble than they endured.
