I AM HALF JEWISH

And my uncle was a big wig in the Anti-Defamation League in Detroit –

And I am appalled by the ADL’s attacks on Keith Ellison.

THE GOP WAR ON DEMOCRACY

All too reminiscent of the 2000 coup: in Michigan, the Republican-controlled state legislate jury rigs a bill to stop the recount.

KELLYANNE PULLS HER NIP-UPS

It unfolds like clockwork: the minute a right-wing operative is confronted with his/her behavior, s/he pulls a 180 and claims s/he is being defamed.

Fascists of yesteryear as well as today love pulling this stunt.

It happens every time Kellyanne Conway or anyone connected with Trump goes out in public. True to form, Conway tried it at the Harvard election post-morten when Clinton staffer Jennifer Palmieri hit her point blank with the precise nature of the Trump takeover.

Kellyanne just got so upset [a/k/a evinced outrage]! ““Do you think I ran a campaign where white supremacists had a platform? You’re going to look me in the face and tell me that?”

To her credit, Palmieri didn’t fall for it, but simply reiterated to Conway that, yes, that’s exactly what Conway had done.

As Charles Blow apostrophises in the Times: “Yes Kellyanne, that is exactly what you did and no amount of personal outrage about being called out on it is going to rewrite that history. Furthermore, everyone who sees you should say that to your face at every opportunity.”

A SHIFT OF EMPHASIS

With the nomination of Carson to HUD Secretary, one can truly call the dilapidated, addled, fringe cabinet assembled by Trump as the gang that couldn’t shoot straight.

Except, that’s the one thing they can do–destroy. Destroy every public good, public function, public responsibility, public institution in sight, including and most particularly the national identity and global presence of the US of A.

Trump’ “Making America Great” hustle is one of the most toxic frauds ever leveled at the American population.

TRUMP’S ADHERENTS SCARED SHITLESS ABOUT THE RECOUNT

Thus the frantic plethora of baseless lawsuits, advancing double-think reasoning–a truthful outcome may prove that Fearless Leader didn’t win, thus he would suffer injury– we may not have heard since the Supreme Court’s coup d’etat in 2000.

THE DEMENTED WORLD OF DR. TOM PRICE

Let’s say the doctor, his ideas, and his associations are all equally insalubrious.

Read the medical chart provided by Matt Shuman and Caitlin Macneal at TalkingPointsMemo.

Of course the bad doctor is a member of a sicko fringe medical association.

Of course he is.

IN MICHIGAN, THE FIX IS IN

The profoundly anti-Democratic fix of today’s GOP.

Unbelievably, yet inevitably, Michigan’s Republican Attorney General is suing to stop the recount.

The Democrats must find a way to really, really put on their thinking caps and focus this time, and commit the no-brainer of connecting the dots for the American public: our democracy is being defeated —

not by some Folks Doing Stuff, but by the Republican Party.

CARRIER TRUMPS AMERICA

Once again, Bernie Sanders leads the way, exposing in The Washington Post Trump’s sham populism, his showering of largesse on corporate America–and this is just the beginning.

“In 2014, United Technologies gave its former chief executive Louis Chenevert a golden parachute worth more than $172 million. Last year, the company’s five highest-paid executives made more than $50 million.”

And this is a company that deserves tax breaks for outsourcing 1,000 jobs?
