Memory Refresher


...as opposed to booze-fueled teenage romps and rape attempts.

Not Even Pretending Anymore


It would be a shame if we deliberately installed an actual, declared imperialist lapdog on the Supreme Court.

But there is this problem: the Congressional Republicans are beyond all shame.

We’re

gonna be

Royally

Fucked.

Now Clocking at 79 LPD

Yes, the perjuring potus has hit a new high according to the Washington Post: 79 lies per day (LPD).

One news outlet— the Toronto Star— found it necessary to create a dedicated metric to document Trump’s daily deceit onslaught. The sheer volume of lies was too overwhelming to comprehend without a better quantifier, so they came up with a “dishonesty density” index.

Scatologists are said to be helping the journal further refine Donald’s daily eliminations by texture, odor and resistance to disinfectant.

This Guy

Ever since the federal government made hateful, unjust laws in the 1950s saying that school segregation is illegal, this guy got super, super busy.

He worked for the University of Virginia and the Koch brothers inventing a system of economics to restore America to slave ownership.

Wikipedia cites his approach to economic analysis thusly: “His work in public choice theory is often interpreted as the quintessential instance of economics imperialism

Notice he named a program that is exactly the reverse of democratic public will “public choice theory.” This diabolically simple marketing technique straight out of Orwell is how stuff gets done in America!

The Regime’s First Banned Book


The interesting times we live in make fine entertainment and fine conditions for the quiet demolition of every single assumed right of every single unassuming screen-obsessed, conflict-averse citizen immune to the death-throe shudders of democracy.

When we say “mob rule,” is it rioting in the streets or wanton anarchist chaos?— no, it’s a day at the White House where the occupant obsesses about squealers and rats and getting the Feds off his back.

When we say “Republican legislator” we mean scheming cohorts in expensive suits twisting every law, yanking every lever and extracting every cent from the People’s treasury to keep themselves and the boss in power.

The last slim hopes before we’re subjects of an eastern bloc autocracy are fading. The mob’s assumed immunity to prosecution is riveting entertainment. Read on, here.

It Took a Woman

Not one Senator, not a single member of Congress or anyone in the cabinet did bupkis when the infantile tyrant in the White House refused to fly the flag at half-mast for fallen war hero and Senator, John McCain.

Denise Rohan, the Commander of the American Legion called him out on this inconceivable breach of protocol— and he reversed course and complied.

NEW Car Salesman

Yep, the car’s for real and actually looks like that.

The headline about the car and the photo of the car itself are real— the rest is only as unreal as an average day in a world where Donald Trump remains at large.

Funny In An Excruciating Way

Sasha Baron Cohen likes a comedic pain threshold few can tolerate— a sort of Andy Kaufman zone.

It’s hard laughing at his genius for promoting an absurdity past all human tolerance of insane behavior when the behavior he elicits just isolates and shoves in your face individual instances of daily Trump-era insanities.

The problem is borne of the formula: tragedy + time = comedy. It’s ALWAYS too soon when the joke is ubiquitous, unrelenting and ultimately on you.
“Who is America?” his series asks, and America answers back “could you please pick on somebody else?”

Private Time With Vlad


The closed-room, unwitnessed, non-transcribed meeting of the U.S. President and the hostile foreign leader he’s under federal investigation for colluding with in the theft of the office he holds will commence as scheduled.

Queen Celebrates the Fourth

Just in: a learned rebuttal from MAGAman

Follow the Money?— Hah, It’s Stalking You

Deutsche Bank got caught in a $10B Russian money laundering scheme and paid a $630M fine— around the same time Justice Kennedy’s son at Deutsche Bank was loaning Trump over a billion dollars—when no other bank would touch him.

Just coincidence: Kennedy’s sudden departure from the Supreme Court bench just prior to the midterm elections while Trump is under Federal investigation for treasonous conspiracy with the Russians— and now he gets to pick his own judge.

Obviously, nothing to see here.

Harley Har Har



Snopes says the Harley Davidson CEO did not call Trump a moron, which is anyway an important fucking adjective short of what Rex Tillerson DID call him.

Trump’s trade war sent Harley packing overseas.The US’s largest nail manufacturer is brinking on bankruptcy from Trump’s “war.’

These guys voted for him. Did they not notice bankruptcy is his business model?

Mistaken Reality

Reality Winner is the name of this young woman. She worked for the NSA and leaked documentation of multiple Russian attempts to manipulate state and local electoral boards during the 2016 election.

Reality Winner is going to jail for violating the espionage act by sending the information to a media outlet. She believed the public should know Russians hacked our presidential election.

2018’s reality is a fraudulent US president installed by a foreign government, enabled by a corrupt Congress. Our rights, environment and treasury are being annihilated.

“Reality Winner” is a surreally perfect name for somebody prosecuted by illicit, deranged reality for demonstrating the practice of its opposite: moral sanity.

Loon Star State


Out on the Texas panhandle this billboard actually exists.

Unfortunately, Ted Cruz does, too.

A Maniac, You Say?

Veteran CBS newsman Eric Sevareid said his hour-long interview with Eric Hoffer was “the greatest filmed monologue I had ever had anything to do with in all my years in television.” Sevareid was the CBS Washington bureau chief from 1946 to 1954 and covered every presidential election from 1948 to 1976, alongside Murrow and Cronkite, so that’s saying something.

Eric Hoffer was a self-educated longshoreman who wrote ten books, became an adjunct professor at UC Berkley and was presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1983. Asked  how his own epitaph might read, Hoffer replied “He wrote a few good sentences.” Here’s one:

In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.
