WHY (AND HOW) TRUMP, McCONNELL & THE GOP CAUCUS HATE AMERICA

If you love a country, do you poison its children?

If you love a country, do you destroy its democratic institutions?

Their assault on this country is summed up very well by Andrew Florentino at Daily Kos.

WHY SCHUMER AND PELOSI CAN’T CUT IT

Adam Serwer writes in The Atlantic:

“The Democratic Party cannot fulfill its constitutional responsibilities because its leadership lives in abject terror of being ejected from office by alienating the voters to whom Trump’s nationalism appeals. In effect, the majority of the American electorate, which voted against Trump in 2016 and then gave the Democrats a House majority in 2018, has no representation.”

IT’S TIME TO SUE

The Squad must now sue neo-Nazi apologist Donald J. Trump for his flagrantly defamatory charges against them, his alleging that they made anti-Semitic remarks that they simply did not make.

KEEP IT GOING

Footage of that obscene smugness on Trump’s face at his Nuremberg really the other night as his crowd of hate-besotted idolators surrendered their free will and duly shouted “Send Her Back” in obeisance to their Supreme Leader —

must be included in the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate’s campaign ads.

Don’t you think?

HOPE HICKS BELIEVES PRAYER SHOULD BE AN AID TO OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE

Hicks is another one of the corrupt, criminal morons Trump surrounds himself with, and the revelations in the materials unsealed today she’s presented in all her true colors.

RE: REP. OMAR:

Sarah Jaffe tweets:

“Trump attacks her cause he’s racist but also because she is very, very good at her job. And this is also why the Dem leadership won’t stand up for her. She puts them to shame.”

TRUMP PREENED WHENTHE TOWERS CAME DOWN

Boasted about the size of his edifice.

And now the scoundrel has the nerve to again accuse Rep. Omar of cheering when the World Trade Center fell.

Trump has brought America to a new inflection point of delusion and sham.

WE’VE BEEN WARNED

Liz Cheney will try to take her vicious, defamatory lies, her racism, and her psychological disturbances all the way to the White House.

You know something? I think where Cheney Family Values are concerned, Liz is worse that both of her parents put together.

Heather Digby Parton at Salon sounds the alarm.

LIZ CHENEY’S MOUTH IS AN EXHAUST PIPE

Even amid a Republican caucus that has shed any pretense to patriotism or ethics, Daddy’s Girl stands out. She is deplorable. Her latest outburst must be condemned by the Democrats. The reason that someone like Liz Cheney thinks she can say these things is that for the last twenty-five years the Democrats retreated into defensive cringing. Now The Squad is changing that, and Mme. Speaker had better start showing her gratitude.

FABRIC RETRIEVES SOUND

Whenever I’m at the Met Opera House I try to look at some of the vintage costumes on display. Recently there was a vitrine with mannequins draped in Wagnerian costumes of Flagstad’s, Jeritza’s, and Fremstad’s. They were beautifully preserved and just plain beautiful. I was impressed again by how shapely–not skinny but not fat–so many operatic divas of the past seem to have been. Each soprano was one-of-a-kind, yet part of a stellar tradition. The performances in which those costumes participated have vanished into the ether, but the fabric is living witness. And by the way, have those performances really vanished into the ether? I read an audiophile’s comment once that perhaps one day those sound waves may somehow be able to be retrieved!
