News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News Briefs

Hey Guys, remember that time former Libertarian goat rodeo candidate and noted egomaniac Wayne Allyn Root bragged about how he was gonna win Nevada for Hair Führer (spoiler: Trump lost Nevada)?

Anyway, he’s miffed to the core of his Baptist-style haircut that he LOST NEVADA! And there can only be one explanation: illegal aliens voting stole it from Root!

Let’s listen in as he suggests that Trump request a nation-wide recount.

Yes, let’s do that. Let’s have a nation-wide rematch, Root. I fully endorse this idea.

Ilsa, She-Wolf of The Nazis…

Crazy is as Crazy Does

Crazy is as Crazy Does

…tells us two things and blog help me I kinda agree with her analysis (and yes, I note that a clock is right twice a day and a Calendar is right about once a decade…):

HOW TRUMP COULD RUIN HIS PRESIDENCY

…What coalesced Trump’s base, what made his support tempered steel, was the fact that voters had been lied to, over and over again – on many things, but most smugly and repeatedly on immigration…

…But if he breaks a major campaign promise, his supporters will turn on him with a blind ferocity, dwarfing their rage toward Jeb! because Trump’s is the more exquisite con. He will have duped them. And he will never, ever, ever get them back.

This does not mean that I’ve switched sides, but that I agree with her analysis: if Hair Fuhrer fails to enact the white power segregation he ran on, The New Confederacy will run him outta town in a NY minute. That was the main driver of his support, and if he doesn’t box car outta the country everyone that they hate, they will come for him. They want him to expand the deportation list, not shrink it.

And the other thing that Apple Annie (see what I did there?) said that struck me as prescient was a Tweet last night:

She’s smart enough (cunning, actually, if you know what I mean and I think you do) to know that if Ayn Rand fan boi and noted Zombie-eyed Granny-starver Paul Ryan tries to vivisect Social Security and Medicare as part of his dismantling of the ACA, all hell will break loose in Methlandia as the Medicare scooters are confiscated and the checks stop coming in.

DNC Chair Election: Keith Ellison’s Plan

http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2016/12/1/1606010/-Keith-Ellison-Provides-His-Plan-For-DNC

I’m disappointed to see he wants to leave room at the table for the DLC, but you can’t always get what you want.

From the link…

“It’s time for a change.

We must energize Democratic activists across the country and give them the tools to build the Party from the bottom up. Beyond a 50-state strategy, we need a 3,143-county strategy.”

I think he gets it.djbphoto_151017_0241

I would prefer a full-timer in the chair, Howard Dean.

I don’t question Ellison’s commitment. I think he’s biting off more than he can chew and seriously underestimating the opposition.

The stakes are too high. We need 100% from the Chair and he’s going to have his work in congress cut out for him under the assaults of the Trump admin, combined with Ryan’s efforts to inflict his Randian wet-dreams upon our people.

He Seems Nice, Part Infinity

The last time Y'all Qaeda tried to rally against the 'mos had a few glitches...

The last time Y’all Qaeda tried to rally against the ‘mos had a few glitches…

Over at Barbwire, the blog-like thingie of Matt Barber, the man who only thinks about hot, sweaty man-on-man sex with thighs like pistons that can pump all night, we learn about one man’s (Paul Hair) hopes and dreams:

DISMANTLE THE STONEWALL INN

Progressives are ratcheting up their War on America, and as they destroy its history there is an opportunity to strike back by working to dismantle the Stonewall Inn in New York City.

But why, you ask?

Reuters reported on Nov. 19 that Louisville, Ky. began dismantling a Confederate monument for removal to a different location. The dismantling of the monument is part of the progressive campaign to destroy all reminders of the Confederacy. This campaign, in turn, is part of the larger effort to demonize and destroy all of U.S. culture.

Oh. Monuments honoring slavery are being torn down, so, therefore uh, monuments to fighting for freedom… Wait. What? The logic here is fleeting.

Demonizing and destroying American culture includes elevating evil. This is why the Obama regime honored sodomy by designating the Stonewall National Monument in June of this year.

Wow, the ‘mos are more powerful than anyone knew! So… what’s the real agenda here?

There already is a movement urging the incoming Trump administration to undo the Obama regime’s massive land grab. That land grab included designating the Stonewall Inn and many other areas of land as parts of national monuments.

I walked past the Stonewall once in NYC; I had to ask someone where it was. This is not a massive place, by any stretch of the imagination. But you know: BIRD RESERVES!!1! But at least he’s tipping the Koch Brothers’ hand. Y’all Qaeda can help the Koch’s get their hands on oil in national parks, and the rubes can tear down an old bar.

There’s no reason those objecting to America honoring sodomy couldn’t join the larger movement to undo all the national monuments Obama designated at large. And if that effort proves successful, it then would make it possible to destroy the Stonewall Inn and wipe out its stain on American history.

…and that’s when I clicked close the tab. Whenever you start talking about certain people as a stain on history, you are jumping into dangerous waters. Talking about wiping them out is out-right Nazi-ism, it’s more than just the usual suppressed homoeroticism on the Barbwire site.

The Morning Quote

“Trump has endangered the jobs of workers who were previously safe in the United States,” Sanders wrote. “Why? Because he has signaled to every corporation in America that they can threaten to offshore jobs in exchange for business-friendly tax benefits and incentives.”

–Vermont. Sen. Bernie Sanders

Bernie is quite right about that. And if you think this sets a bad precedent, just wait until the Republican set a low tax rate for repatriating overseas profits. That flushing noise is your job leaving the country.

How’s That Swamp Draining?

Best gubmint money can buy.

Best gubmint money can buy.

A joint statement from Sens. Sanders and Warren:

“During the campaign, Donald Trump told the American people that he was going to change Washington by taking on Wall Street. Donald Trump’s choice for Treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, is just another Wall Street insider. That is not the type of change that Donald Trump promised to bring to Washington – that is hypocrisy at its worst. After his bank pocketed billions in taxpayer dollars from the bailout, Mnuchin moved on to make a fortune running another bank that aggressively foreclosed on families still reeling from the crisis. This pick makes clear that Donald Trump wants to cater to the same Wall Street executives that have hurt working families time and again.”

(Ed. Side note: we maintain that hypocrisy is not about failing to live up to one’s own standards — everyone is human and can fail — hypocrisy is continuing to teach or preach to others something one clearly does not believe in. Hair Führer Trump clearly NEVER believed in Draining the Swamp®, so naming human spell-check breaker Steve Mnuchin Treasury Secretary is not an example of Trump’s hypocrisy, it is another example of Trump’s LYING.)

Activism: The More Your Know: DNC Chair Election

According to the latest information I have the DNC Chair will be elected by popular vote in March 2017. All 447 DNC Members will be voting.

Here is an article that explains the DNC Chair election process quite well.

As of this writing I know of two candidates for the position: Keith Ellison and Howard Dean.

It’s no secret that TG  and I prefer Dean for the position because he has experience and a proven track record in the position. He can hit the ground running.

Right now we, as a party and as a country are in deep doo-doo. We have no time to waste on someone taking three to six months coming up to speed.

I have two goals for my activism efforts on this blog:

  1. Motivate the DNC to implement the Fifty State Strategy, which Dean has said he will do if elected.
  2. See Howard Dean seated as DNC Chair for the second time.

I want to ask each person reading this post to go to the 2016 DNC Membership List at the activism tab above. Select three of the people on that list and call them. Investing fifteen minutes of your time each week to put an end to the Trump administration/bank heist/freak show and elect a Democrat to the office as soon as possible.

Please stick to the simple message of advocating for your preferred candidate for DNC Chair – Ellison, Dean or whoever you feel would be the best person for the job.

Most importantly we must advocate for implementing the Fifty State 1280x720-lauStrategy proven effective by Howard Dean in 2008 when the Dems won the house, the senate and the executive.

I suggest using the Fifty State Strategy and Howard Dean Support Letter located at the activism link  above to maintain message consistency.

We need your voice to help take control of our future. Make the calls today, please.

News That Will Drive You To Drink

[Retired General David] Petraeus would have to notify probation officer if named secretary of State

From his court judgment after being sentenced to two years: “The defendant shall not leave the Western District of North Carolina without the permission of the Court or probation officer. Travel allowed for work as approved by U.S. probation office.”

“In addition to those guidelines, Petraeus could also be subject to warrantless searches if he was appointed to Trump’s cabinet. His probation officer would be able to access and review his computer and phone data at any point in time until the end of his sentence.”

Sorta brings a patriotic tear to one’s eye, doesn’t it?
