HOW McCONNELL’S RIGGED IMPEACHMENT ACQUITTAL ENABLED TRUMP’S GENOCIDAL INDIFFEFENCE

John Stoehr at Raw Story explains:

The president knows he doesn’t have to do anything he doesn’t want to, and the GOP will back him up no matter how much he betrays our country.

“Yes, Trump will block the states from getting coronavirus testing in order to keep the national number of dead artificially low.”

FUNNY FELLOW

Jordan Kurker-Mraz says that the originators of cultural intersectionality never dreamed how it would be manipulated. “It’s been gentfrified: white people are using it to pick on each other!”

TRUMP’S DEFLECTION MO

He tries to distract from his failure and his negligence by leveling outrageous, scattershot accusations–now it’s the apocryphal mask-hoarders.

Vile, vile man–but one thing we know:he never learns, changes, does anything new, so we can always predict what he’ll say/do. Therefore no one should be flustered or flummoxed, no matter how shameless he ges.

FOX “NEWS” SHOULD BE WORRIED & IT SHOULD BE SUED

Imagine that. . .a modicum of accountability for Fox.
Is it possible?

This fever pit of traitorous lies and hate propaganda is apparently, finally, feeing a bit of heat.

Gabriel Sherman tells Joy Reid:”there’s a real concern inside the network that their early downplaying of the coronavirus actually exposes Fox News to potential legal action by viewers who maybe were misled and actually have died from this.”

Why, btw, has only Trish Regan been fired (so far)?
Loathesome as she is, did Fox really think making her the sacrificial lamb solves their problem?

IT’S PHYSICAL

In 1988, Francis Mason and I had lunch with Alicia Markova at the Lombardy hotel in Manhattan. Dame Alicia was seventy-seven, which seemed ancient to me at the time. But now that seems almost young given that her career seemed to have spanned centuries. She had been a leading dancer almost from the moment she joined Diaghilev in 1924, having just turned fourteen.

I felt I needed to stick up for the much-maligned (by Balanchine and others) Alice Nikitina. Yes, she had been Lord Rothemere’s mistress and thrown his weight around in the company, but certainly her legs and feet were beautiful in photos.
Dame Alicia agreed, but said that Nikitina had weak ankles and was always getting injured.

Tamara Geva often complained that Diaghilev had never liked her all that much and seemed to represent his dislike as a personal aversion. Markova suggested, however, that it was because Geva had broad shoulders and that wasn’t Diaghilev’s ideal of ballerina physique.

Geva was only three years older than Markova, but a married woman, and always nice to and rather protective of her younger colleague. Markova remembered Geva coming to her dressing room at the end of their 1927 season at the Prince’s theater in London and saying goodbye–she was leaving Diaghilev and going to America.

REVELATIONS ABOUT THE GATES FOUNDATION

Tim Schwab has written a stunning expose of the Gates Foundation in the current Nation.

You can’t make this up: the Gates take huge tax write-offs for donating to corporations that are printing money–some of them in which the foundation has a financial stake!

HATE FACE OR CLOWN FACE?

It’s interesting; when Trump isn’t contorting his face into one of those, it’s a blank, almost immobile mask–the convulsive mouth gyrations almost a way of compensation, however.

STATE OF THE TRUMP

Props to Paula Reid for standing firm in the face of:

Trump’s ever-more frenetic hand and arm gestures, some now borrowed from Shirley Bassey. . .

his scattershot attacks at every thing and everyone, in other words, his ever-widening paranoia. . .

his solipsistic rantings that public health concerns are simply a means to derail his election. . .

his grotesque, unconstitutional berating of the press. .

his hectoring lies and counter-factual claims. . .
