Here’s Krystal Ball of “The Hill: Rising” discussing the 2020 Iowa Caucus debacle on this morning’s show: “Well, guys, it was rigged. What can I tell you? And it’s not a conspiracy, it is a simple objective statement of fact. Let me explain what I mean, here. After waiting nearly an entire day — and endless speeches about how it’s… Read More »R-I-G-G-E-D? (B-I-N-G-O!)
[NOTHING TO SEE HERE, MOVE ALONG… JUST ANOTHER “BRO” RANTING ABOUT “RIGGED” ELECTIONS… BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, WHO GIVES A DAMN ABOUT DEMOCRACY, CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, OR TRANSPARENCY?] From CNN’s report about the Iowa Caucus debacle: “Shawn Sebastian, a precinct secretary in Story County, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, ‘I have been on hold for over an hour with the Iowa Democratic… Read More »WHAT’S APP WITH THIS BULLSHIT???
What a farce! Democrats are actually lamenting that they can’t call John Bolton as a witness! The Republicans reportedly offered a “witness swap,” Bolton for Hunter Biden, and the Democrats folded: Not gonna’ happen, because “Cuppa’ Joe” says so. And now Trump’s going to get the speedy acquittal everyone’s been predicting for months. (I repeat: what a farce!) Does anyone need reminding… Read More »#Resistance “hero” John Bolton…
In a piece published today at CommonDreams.org, Norm Solomon writes “a tactical coalition with Warren is vital.” Honestly, I would welcome such an alliance, but Mr. Solomon is living in a dream world if he thinks that Warren and Sanders are on the same side. Elizabeth Warren clearly works for the Clinton-wing of the party. As was the case in… Read More »A “TACTICAL ALLIANCE” BETWEEN THE SCORPION AND FROG ISN’T POSSIBLE… BLUB, BLUB, BLUB.
IN SACRED PENTAGON WAR ROOM KNOWN AS “THE TANK,” DONALD TRUMP CALLED SEVERAL GENERALS “DOPES AND BABIES!”
Their tutorial of the new president had backfired, even though they’d shown Trump lots of slides with pictures of dollar signs on them and spoke in real estate terms, keeping things at a remedial level. Trump repeatedly interrupted his benevolent tutors and questioned why the U.S. is still in Afghanistan, the nation’s longest war. He questioned why the U.S. has… Read More »IN SACRED PENTAGON WAR ROOM KNOWN AS “THE TANK,” DONALD TRUMP CALLED SEVERAL GENERALS “DOPES AND BABIES!”
So, Elizabeth Warren is trashing Bernie Sanders based on a Politico story which has as its source “a person close to Sanders’ campaign.” An anonymous source speculates that “if” the Sanders campaign is finally willing to discuss Sen. Warren’s considerable weaknesses and lack of broad support, “(Sanders) is aware.” (All progressives have been saying — with no directives from the… Read More »SOME “FRIEND!”
KILLING GEN. SOLEIMANI: A BOON TO AL QAEDA, ISIS, AND THE NEOCON AGENDA, RISKING A MAJOR CONFLAGRATION
While most establishment voices have cheered the assassination of Gen. Soleimani, a recent CounterPunch article has a much better take on Soleimani’s role in the GWOT era. From the article: “As Soleimani moved about openly in Iraq, U.S. commanders did not attack him because he did not attack them. Sometimes, pro-American and pro-Iranian soldiers even fought side by side. Thanks… Read More »KILLING GEN. SOLEIMANI: A BOON TO AL QAEDA, ISIS, AND THE NEOCON AGENDA, RISKING A MAJOR CONFLAGRATION
Piss-poor “#Resistance” — Part I: The Pee Tape that “wasn’t” responsible for an investigation being launched… until the Horowitz Report revealed that it was.
[To reassure you that I’m not being extra-gratuitously crude, here are a few words from Wikipedia about a bit of jargon I use a couple of times in the following diatribe: “Ratfucking is an American slang term for political sabotage or dirty tricks. It was brought to public attention by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in their non-fiction book All the President’s Men (1974).”] It’s a tragedy and a disgrace.… Read More »Piss-poor “#Resistance” — Part I: The Pee Tape that “wasn’t” responsible for an investigation being launched… until the Horowitz Report revealed that it was.
The authors of this article write: “the reversal we have in mind is the movement from late twentieth-century liberal democracy to seventeenth-century autocracy.” Mention Thucydides all you want, fellas, but your take on the Trump era is somewhere between sub-mental and wholly detached from reality. In what parallel universe did we have a “liberal democracy” in the late twentieth century?… Read More »“Liberal democracy,” before and after Donald Trump…
