to run this country and trample over democracy.
to poison our environment and cause untold sickness and suffering, hastening the end of humanity.
to eliminate all Wall Street regulation so that they can rip us all off even bigger time.
Cenk Uygur mocks Ted Cruz’s genuflection to Rebekah Mercer in Time Magazine.
Know-nothing-sock-puppet-of-a-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson shakes the requisite war-mongering fist at Iran, provocatively making unsubstantiated accusations of alleged provocations which contradict what he just told Speaker Ryan.
And even though it contradicts what actual security experts who know what they’re talking about are saying.
Ooooh… Trump wants those new wars so badly!
Even McConnell’s Southern hospitality is fake, as he now chooses to snub Senator Warren when they pass in the Congressional hallways.
Warren describes Connell’s latest fit of pique and rudeness–we’ll set aside, for the moment, his assaults on democracy–to Victoria McGrane in the Boston Globe.
Filibustering the heinous Gorsuch was one of their finest hours. It was the right thing to do from every perspective. Had they allowed the theft of Garland’s seat to proceed with no more response than Obama & Co.’s characteristic whimpers of dismay, they would have virtually ceased to exist as a credible political party.
The Liar-in-Chief watches Fox “News” and pounds his chest.
Trump is opening the hen house to the most rapacious hired-industry-gun foxes, utterly undermining the ability of the executive branch to do anything on behalf of the American people-at-large. And issuing waives to let the vulpine perform end runs around all the ethics rules they’re violating.
It’s the Let’s Pillage American presidency!
The New York Times and Pro Publica join forces to expose Trump’s ongoing ravaging of the public interest.
Trump and his henchman Scott Pruitt are poisoning our water, earth and air, accelerating humankind’s race to extinction. Why aren’t the Democrats out front on this issue, which is a winning one? Perhaps Senator Schatz needs to be appointed the Dems’ point person on this issue. Sound the alarm!
McConnell mugged democracy and kneecapped Obama over the Supreme Court. But Obama still continued to capitulate. Last summer, McConnell made the ludicrous, feckless (except when dealing with Obama) threat to whine about partisanship if the then-President blew the whistle on Russian skullduggery. And somehow Obama again buckled under. Astonishing.
Independent Sanders is one of the few members of the Democratic caucus willing to hit the nail on the head about our grotesquely inflated military budget:
He tweets: “Our military budget is larger than the next 12 nations combined. We do not need to spend more. We need to take care of our people.”
Trump, of course is a walking, talking exercise in double think, kvelling about the miracle of our weaponry while claiming that Obama degraded that very same arsenal.
At the intersection of Perry and Hudson Streets, two corner stores remain empty, months after the prior tenants–a restaurant and a rental agency–have left.
