On the morning of Friday, January 25, 2019, dark and early, NPR popped up on my clock radio and Steve Inskeep said the following words: “Roger Stone is set to appear in federal court. He was arrested in Florida.” Continue reading “The Art of Distraction…”
Up till now, news in the Age of Trump has broken on Friday, too late for anyone to pay attention because they’re commuting home, burned out from another week fighting the dumpster fire our nation’s become. They’re too busy trying to reclaim their lives on the weekend, pretending that the house isn’t falling apart around them.
So it will come as no surprise to anyone paying attention that the news of Mueller’s pending indictment(s) came on Friday. What’s different is the way people have reacted since that news broke. Reactions ranging from “it’s nothing” to “they GOT the son of a bitch” have been all over my FB feed and on Twitter. Those who Know how slowly the gears of justice grind have cautioned folks to adopt a “wait and see” approach. Continue reading “Spin is everything…”
Okay, I’m busy trying to mess with my office machines, but I can’t let this go.
First it was Flynn, then Sessions. And now J. D. Gordon has come out in USAToday (source coming soon) to say that Trump himself knew about the change to the Republican National Committee’s platform to soften the rhetoric on Russia and the Ukraine.
Riddle me this, Batman: Is there ANYONE in Trump’s current administration, or (in fact) ANY part of the GOP not tainted through the Russians? Continue reading “How long till it all blows up?”
There is no way I can write a response to her question without taking on the people who read my writing, so let me preface this statement with the following: I am GLAD people are finally waking up and doing something. It’s about damn time.
That said, in realigning my personal and political blogs, I’ve had ample opportunity to look back at my writing. I lived through the Reagan era and I spent a lot of time reading articles about our history, about abortion, toxic waste, energy, and a host of other issues most kids my age barely acknowledged.
I guarantee you the writing was on the wall, even back then, especially as the USA Patriot Act was fresh and new.
I supported him. I did not and DO NOT support those people who thought he should win, picked up their toys and went to vote for Johnson or Stein instead.
I listened to Stein continue the dialogue, and to Nader as well, on Election night. They *STILL* have not walked back one thing they said that night. Until I see THEM apologize, turn THEIR supporters back into the fold, this whole discussion is meaningless.
Where the fuck are THEY now?
Decades from now, will we remember all the warnings? Will we even be able to find the evidence that was there?
In the last few days, since the start of the 115th Congress, there have been reports all over the internet of rules changed to favor the GOP, to give them the power to strip away protections that keep our citizens healthy and safe.
None of these steps are new. Not one. Continue reading “Fascism Denial…”
But that doesn’t matter, because time moves on whether I like it or not.
So here are two raw links. Read everything, including the sublinks.
What comes after January 20, 2017 is on you.
I’ll be back soon to write the posts I’ve got sitting in drafts.
Go do your homework.
You’ve gotten this far, so it’s likely that you can find all the ways in which I predicted the outcome of this year’s Presidential election. There isn’t anyone as clear on the subject as Jim Wright, so I will let him tell you what I think of the situation, at least in part. Stonekettle Station: Bug Hunt
There. Got that all out of your system?
And from here on out, I’m live on Facebook, and will post updates below.
I’m devoting all my time right now to updating my spreadsheet.
When I’ve finished, I’ll post my results to 270towin.com, but there’s no point in putting the link up now.
ETA: 1:43am EST – http://www.270towin.com/maps/36n0N (My best guess as of this moment.)
Folks, I don’t think I can watch anymore. I’m going to go to bed and try to sleep.
I just want people to remember, when they look back at tonight, that the polls this year were WORTHLESS. They lied, just the way I said they would.
They didn’t take into account independents, and that’s where they went wrong. The pundits won’t admit this fault in the logic, but that’s where it lies.
And for the record, yes, Jill Stein did have an effect. She cost us Pennsylvania, if it comes down to the wire in that state.
