We are witnessing the death throes of a global crime organization.



Let’s speed it along.

Operation CONDOR

Capitalism’s Invisible Army.

There's a certain satisfaction rolling him out with a bum's rush.

Lower than Whale Turd Level Loser

Rudy is melting down.

An animated figure from Madame Tussaud’s worst fascist nightmare.

His female colleague chastised the press for asking about their lack of evidence of voter fraud.

Hope they all make it back to their fucking alternate universe of morons after prison.

Don't water Trump's "plant of baloney."

A nice turn of phrase.



Wisconsin Democratic election official: Don't water Trump's 'plant of baloney'

The bipartisan state board argued for six hours before approving the recount rules.


Excerpt...

Board Chair Ann Jacobs, a Democrat, said Trump’s allegation that election clerks mailed thousands of absentee ballots to voters who hadn’t requested them was “absurd,” “factually bizarre” and a “vague, paranoid conspiracy.”

“What we ought not be doing is watering that plant of baloney,” she said.

In 62 days, the only time I want to hear about baloney boy is to learn about the latest batch of indictments.

Hundreds move as one.

Amazing video, OAITW r.2.0.

My favorite TV show was Kung Fu. I remember Master Kan and Master Po would often quote Jane English and Gia Fu Feng’s translation of the Tao te Ching.

Forty-three

The softest thing in the universe
Overcomes the hardest thing in the universe.
That without substance can enter where there is no room.
Hence I know the value of non-action.

Teaching without words and work without doing
Are understood by very few.

Where they got the idea.

The Powell Memo (also known as the Powell Manifesto)

The Powell Memo was first published August 23, 1971


Introduction

In 1971, Lewis Powell, then a corporate lawyer and member of the boards of 11 corporations, wrote a memo to his friend Eugene Sydnor, Jr., the Director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The memorandum was dated August 23, 1971, two months prior to Powell’s nomination by President Nixon to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Powell Memo did not become available to the public until long after his confirmation to the Court. It was leaked to Jack Anderson, a liberal syndicated columnist, who stirred interest in the document when he cited it as reason to doubt Powell’s legal objectivity. Anderson cautioned that Powell “might use his position on the Supreme Court to put his ideas into practice…in behalf of business interests.”

Though Powell’s memo was not the sole influence, the Chamber and corporate activists took his advice to heart and began building a powerful array of institutions designed to shift public attitudes and beliefs over the course of years and decades. The memo influenced or inspired the creation of the Heritage Foundation, the Manhattan Institute, the Cato Institute, Citizens for a Sound Economy, Accuracy in Academe, and other powerful organizations. Their long-term focus began paying off handsomely in the 1980s, in coordination with the Reagan Administration’s “hands-off business” philosophy.

Most notable about these institutions was their focus on education, shifting values, and movement-building — a focus we share, though often with sharply contrasting goals.* (See our endnote for more on this.)

So did Powell’s political views influence his judicial decisions? The evidence is mixed. Powell did embrace expansion of corporate privilege and wrote the majority opinion in First National Bank of Boston v. Bellotti, a 1978 decision that effectively invented a First Amendment “right” for corporations to influence ballot questions. On social issues, he was a moderate, whose votes often surprised his backers.

Fucking Republicans won't even admit, let alone congratulate, Joe on victory.

Of course he should “Move On!” from their perfidy.

How else can the right wing heal?
