Breitbart: “We Loved Roy Moore Until We Hated Him”

Breitbart, the largely super-PAC funded media site, gave its full-throated and defiant support to beleaguered US Senate candidate Roy Moore. It didn’t matter how many credible victims of his sexual predation came forward, or how many ghastly things he said about Muslims and member of the LGBT community, or that he publicly lamented both woman’s suffrage and the end of chattel slavery. But now that Alabama has chosen his rival Doug Jones, a — gasp — Democrat, Breitbart calls Roy Moore “a weak candidate.” Way to show a spine Breitbart. Hate to see where you stand when President Trump resigns and 36 of his closest associates are sentenced to prison. Breitbart future headline prediction: “Trump Never Really Was That Great After All.”

Ted Cruz and The GOP: Pocket Pool For Trump

Whatever opinion you might hold of Donald Trump, and I hold many, such as sociopath, bigot, racist and misogynist, you must admire his doggedness and steadfast commitment to his ugly cause. Compare him, for example, to Ted Cruz. Trump insults Cruz’s wife, his integrity, and even his children, and Cruz’s reacts by lapping at Trump’s udders like a hungry kitten might for milk.

He’s not alone. Rubio, Rand Paul, Ryan and MCconnell have all swallowed any pride or decency thru their silence or outright support of a man whose lack of morals has the entire western world on edge. I mean seriously Ted Cruz, Trump mocked your wife and you still pal around like you were college buds?

I don’t know who Trump is; a monster with a black heart, or a con man of the highest order. But I know who Ted Cruz is, and it ain’t a man.

Roy Moore Cries Election Fraud, Launches “Election Integrity Fund”

Roy Moore lost fair and square the old fashioned way, by not getting enough votes. But that’s not stopping him from whining like a little bitch and crying for his momma. Even though his ideological overlord President Trump has called on him to concede, he refuses. Instead, he’s taking to the airwaves and hinting at election fraud, turning his defeat into a fundraising opportunity. Give now to his “election integrity fund!” If for no other reason than pure entertainment value. This is getting hilarious.

Trump Banning Words In Science

Banning valid terminology from government reports is both ignorant and dangerous,” Arthur Caplan, professor of bioethics at New York University’s School of Medicine, told HuffPost in an email. “Not since Lysenko and Stalin has government made hate, malice and duplicity official policy. The Trump administration with its seven-dirty-words policy has now elevated lying to a national standard.

“We cannot replace truth with bias – the nation cannot survive a steady diet of bullshit.”

Roy Moore: What He Wants In His Foxhole

Roy Moore is not afraid to drag out old cliches. He recently said “I know we do not need transgender in our military. If I’m in a foxhole, I don’t want to know whether this guy next to me is wondering if he’s a woman or a man.”

Well, it’s a cliche. And it’s old. But seeing Roy Moore with anything older than 14 years is a good start. But the fox hole metaphor has been used to discriminate against blacks, Jews, and women. And vets like Moore know the truth. If you’re really in a firefight, and you’re worrying about another man’s package, the problem’s with you.

Perfect Timing – GOP Tax Bill Cuts Deduction for Wildfire Losses

As wildfires rage throughout California, back in Washington Republican lawmakers have eliminated the deduction for property losses due to wildfires or other natural disasters. I know California didn’t vote for Trump, and is overwhelmingly Democratic, but seriously? This feels personal.

As the Thomas Fire, the fifth largest fire in American history, continues to rage this morning, threatening Santa Barbara, and as images of hundreds of lost homes, dead horses, and tens of thousands of displaced Californians fill the news feeds, the timing could not have been worse. Sure am glad the Republicans in Washington are taking away a nominal tax break for regular people suffering the worst days of their lives so that the richest corporations and individuals can have more money they don’t need.

Diversity is Our Greatest Strength Against Republicans

A Republican congressman says “diversity” is not a strength. He says it’s “common sense.” Well, what do you expect from a white, middle aged man from the mid-west? Actually, all of evolutionary science says the opposite. The only thing to survive a nuclear war will be cockroaches (and possibly my my student debt,) and that’s because we are not evolving anymore, but systematically de-evolving. Instead of welcoming the world’s greatest minds, we enact travel bans. We are stagnant. And that is dangerous.

Adaptation is not a compromise, as politicians might have you think. No, adaptation makes us stronger and more likely to survive. This congressman’s fear and ignorance is doing his constituents and himself a disservice. Were it not for diversity, we could not have built this nation.

From Native-Americans to African-Americans, to the Spanish and the French, from the Chinese to Mexicans, we are the classic pot luck. Our whiteness is a sign of our failure to adapt, to become one nation. But that whiteness is slowly fading. So I say to the Congressman; Get on board. America will forgive you.

Hey Billy! Maybe He Was Referring To You!

Good for you Billy, although anyone with your last name should be able to spot that a mile away.

Trump insults us with an insinuation that the voice on the now infamous “grab pussy” tape may not be his. But Billy Bush came to our rescue by reassuring the 1/2 of 1% of America that believes it may not be. I am really at an impasse. Is Trump that stupid, are we that stupid, or did I hit my head on a rock sometime last year and this is all a horrible dream?

Billy Bush? GTFOH. We didn’t really care about you before, but after we saw what a Beta-bottom male you are, a man of such little integrity that you would stoop to that low, we never want to see your GOP-lite ass again.

Is that too harsh?

A New Variation On A Familar Refrain

Arriving in New York for a fundraiser for his 2020 campaign, Trump was welcomed by a variation on his chant. “Lock Him Up, Lock Him Up” filled the air as Trump’s limo pulled up, but once inside he boasted how popular he has become. “New numbers just came out. I’m unbeatable!” Trump boasted. But there are no new numbers, unless he was referring to the new Gallup poll that has his disapproval rating in the 60%’s.

When pushed, Trump still rails against Clinton, the former candidate now private citizen. He would be better off focusing on Mueller, Warner, Schiff and those testifying behind closed doors. Trump’s still running against Hillary, while the rest of the nation is focusing on his possible removal from office. Note To Trump: You’re not unbeatable, and when Mueller’s done, the “lock her up” chants won’t be enough to convince a grand jury. The whole thing may be as simple as changing “her” to “him.”

Walmart Pulls Fascist T-Shirts? What Will I Get Trump For Christmas?

Maybe you remember the despicable t-shirt often seen at Trump rallies. “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some Assembly Required.” And maybe you were wondering what to get for your Fox News watching uncle. Well Walmart sells them. They did anyway. Until now. Walmart has pulled the hideously fascist garb from its otherwise top-notch sartorial offerings. I guess men are going to have to go back to wearing camo cargo shorts and Bud Light shirts or whatever the hell else they sell there.
