George Will FOX Red Carpet WP

Apparently, George Will, the famed Right Wing Republican / Conservative Op-Ed master has bowed his head a little and said that he will NEVER vote for Donald Joe Dr umpf. Real Clear Politics has an article all about it.

It’s funny to see George Will admit what all of us in / around the Democratic Party have been saying for weeksandweeks now. There’s no getting around it, so the chickenhawk neocon battle hound has to admit that while not him, it was his roommate and frat brother kin who shit all over the dorm kitchen over night.

Don’t anyone, ANYONE feel sorry for this garbage. We were at ideological war with these RW pieces of shit long before they wheeled the Trump Burning Man statue in like a big, stinking, shiny object to take our eyes off the ball.

Trump will flush like any nasty, stank turd that ever found itself in any of our homes. There will still be an army of little shits left behind in his wake. We have a Senate to take back. A House. A BUNCH of governors mansions and state legislatures.

To hell with Donald Joe Drumpf. He’s a total red herring macguffin. Keep your aim dutifully on the enemy in front of you and do NOT pity them for being stained orange. The Fascism and endless bigotry remains. Fire when you see the whites of its eyes.

Trump: Treason or Sedition?

Touped Fucktrumpet WP

The FBI is now investigating Donald Trump’s role in aiding Vladmir Putin‘s SVR intelligence agency in influencing American politics.  If he has been colluding with Russia, has he committed treason or sedition?  Before I discuss that, the elephant in the room: What happens to Little Hands if he ends up being accused of one of these high crimes?  Would the DOJ have the balls to even charge an angry Fascist who wields Twitter like an assault rifle?

OK. The difference between Treason and Sedition.  I hand this section off to Greg Boulware.  He wrote a great blog on the subject in 2012.  I would have just linked to it, but it was in reference to  media, politicians, supremacists, and other “Obama Haters” vilifying  our President with endless disgusting character assassinations —  the “degrading and heinous travesty” that was at the time being waged against our Commander In Chief.  Ah, the good ol’ days before actual Sedition was an actual campaign strategy.

Below is a re-print of Greg’s article:

Let us take a moment and examine the difference between Sedition and Treason:


In law, sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization that is deemed by the legal authority to tend toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition.

Typically, sedition is considered a subversive act, and the overt acts that may be prosecutable under sedition laws vary from one legal code to another. Where the history of these legal codes has been traced, there is also a record of the change in the definition of the elements constituting sedition at certain points in history. This overview has served to develop a sociological definition of sedition as well, within the study of state persecution.

The difference between sedition and treason consists primarily in the subjective ultimate object of the violation to the public peace. Sedition does not consist of levying war against a government or of adhering to its enemies, giving enemies aid, and giving enemies comfort. Nor does it consist, in most representative democracies, of peaceful protest against a government, nor of attempting to change the government by democratic means (such as direct democracy or constitutional convention).

Sedition is the stirring up of rebellion against the government in power. Treason is the violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or state, giving aid to enemies, or levying war against one’s state. Sedition is encouraging one’s fellow citizens to rebel against their state, whereas treason is actually betraying one’s country by aiding and abetting another state. Sedition laws somewhat equate to terrorism and public order laws.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one’s sovereign or nation. Historically, treason also covered the murder of specific social superiors, such as the murder of a husband by his wife. Treason against the king was known as high treason and treason against a lesser superior was petty treason. A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.

Oran’s Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as “…[a]…citizen’s actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation].” In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aided or involved by such an endeavor.

Outside legal spheres, the word “traitor” may also be used to describe a person who betrays (or is accused of betraying) their own political party, nation, family, friends, ethnic group, team, religion, social class, or other group to which they may belong.

Often, such accusations are controversial and disputed, as the person may not identify with the group of which they are a member, or may otherwise disagree with the group leaders making the charge. See, for example, race traitor.

At times, the term “traitor” has been leveled as a political epithet, regardless of any verifiable treasonable action. In a civil war or insurrection, the winners may deem the losers to be traitors. Likewise the term “traitor” is used in heated political discussion – typically as a slur against political dissidents, or against officials in power who are perceived as failing to act in the best interest of their constituents. In certain cases, as with the German Dolchstoßlegende, the accusation of treason towards a large group of people can be a unifying political message.

In English law, high treason was punishable by being hanged, drawn and quartered (men) or burnt at the stake (women), or beheading (royalty and nobility). Treason was the only crime, which attracted those penalties (until they were abolished in 1814, 1790 and 1973 respectively). [1] The penalty was used by later monarchs against people who could reasonably be called traitors, although most modern jurists would call it excessive. Many of them would now just be considered dissidents.

In William Shakespeare’s play King Lear (circa 1600), when the King learns that his daughter Regan has publicly dishonored him, he says They could not, would not do ‘t; ’tis worse than murder: a conventional attitude at that time. In Dante Alighieri’s

Inferno, the ninth and lowest circle of Hell is reserved for traitors; Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus, suffers the worst torments of all: being constantly gnawed at by one of Lucifer’s own three mouths. His treachery is considered so notorious that his name has long been synonymous with traitor, a fate he shares with Benedict Arnold, Marcus Junius Brutus (who too is depicted in Dante’s Inferno, suffering the same fate as Judas along with Cassius Longinus), and Vidkun Quisling. Indeed, the etymology of the word traitor originates with Judas’ handing over of Jesus to the Roman authorities: the word is derived from the Latin traditor, which means “one who delivers.”[2] Christian theology and political thinking until after the Enlightenment considered treason and blasphemy as synonymous, as it challenged both the state and the will of God. Kings were considered chosen by God and to betray one’s country was to do the work of Satan.

Paul “The Vulture” Singer

Paul Singer Three Dollar Bill WPFB

By Dax Snaer

After listening to his radio interview, I found this piece by Greg Palast that so intrigued me that I could not stop reading, nor could I stop the steam coming from my ears.  Another stick ’em up, black-hearted trickster intending to undermine the fair process of voting and rig the game in favor of his pick – Rubio.

Paul “The Vulture” Singer and Katherine “Purge’n General” Harris are huge Marco Rubio supporters.  Singer doesn’t “donate” to candidates. He invests in them. And he expects a big, dripping return on his money.

But why Rubio?

Because Singer’s little hatchling is doing The Vulture’s bidding already. Example: Singer has launched a murderous financial “vulture” attack on Argentina, shaking down the gaucho nation for $3 billion.

Argentina Dictator.pngHere’s the story. Decades ago, Argentina’s military dictatorship issued bonds that sucked the nation dry. When democracy returned, 97% of the banks that had funded the dictatorship agreed to take a low payment for these bonds.

Then down swooped The Vulture. Singer and his partners bought up the “hold-out” 3% for $50 million – and now Singer demands that Argentina pay him $3 billion, a 6,000% return on his “investment”—or he’ll bring Argentina to its knees.

That’s why he’s called The Vulture – because Singer has used this same junk-bond ransom trick to swipe aid funds meant for cholera clinics in the Congo. (When Palast uncovered that scheme for BBC Television, Britain’s Parliament banned Singer’s vulture fund from British courts. His operations are outlawed throughout most of the civilized world.)

But The Vulture has a problem: Hillary Clinton.

POTUS HillaryAs Secretary of State, Clinton went to court on Argentina’s side and body-blocked every ugly attempt by The Vulture to savage Argentina.

Singer is screeching.  A President Hillary would cost Singer billions. (As would a President Sanders, a stalwart foe of vulture financiers.) To counter Hillary, The Vulture hatched a Senator: one Marco Rubio. Senator Rubio has made several ethically dubious attempts to bully the Treasury and State Departments on Singer’s behalf.

That failed, so Singer has decided to put the anti-gay martinet Rubio into the White House. (Singer’s son is married to a man—but hey, to Singer, a feast of billions means more to him than family.)

Yet Singer knows you can’t put a Rubio in the Oval Office by winning the most votes.

No way. Changing demographics doom almost any GOP candidacy.

The only way to take the White House is to block the vote of millions of voters of color.

And that’s why Singer has become donor Numero Uno to Karl Rove’s operation American Crossroads.

Karl Rove American Crossroads WPFB

Palast has been on the trail of racist vote suppression tactics since 2000 when Katherine Harris was Purge’n General. And behind so many of the moves to disenfranchise voters, all too successful, is the Rove operation.

Now Palast is on the hunt again, in the middle of ripping the lid off the biggest, most secretive vote suppression operation since Jim Crow was law.

Palast is in the thick of making the movie, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: A Tale of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits, about the coming attempt to swipe the 2016 election through ugly—but unbelievably sophisticated—vote suppression trickery.

For BBC Television, The Guardian and Rolling Stone, Palast has been on the beat of ballot bandits – and the billionaires behind them for 16 years. This film to be released in Spring 2016 – has one aim: to save The House I Live In, the America of Martin Luther King and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

This is not about whether Rubio or Clinton or Sanders or any other candidate should win. This is about making sure that the ballots, not the billionaires, determine the election.

Keep your eyes on the prize.  You matter.

Pucker Up and Take One For the Team

Domestic policies are the waters I swim. Sometimes, though, there are analogous similarities that put it all in a nice kaleidoscope.

It happens all the time, but yesterday, one materialized that defined the stream-crossing phenomenon.

OK, imagine I “accidentally” wander into the back room of a competitor’s suite at a Koch Brothers convention in Dallas. With a bag of recording devices. I’d be arrested. Maybe disappeared. And, I would have deserved the medicine.

But, who the hell told me to break into their hotel suite. Let me glance down and check my call log. Oh yeah.

Seeing the Persian gulf drama play out gave me the same lump in my throat.


US in IranWPFB

I could feel what the US troops were feeling as they were detained in those Iranian waters. But, I don’t know why they were put in that position to begin with. I doubt even they know why. Why in the hell were they there in the first place? You don’t do that on accident. Our tech is the best in the world. They don’t accidentally wander anywhere. They were ordered to go into Iranian waters — to ignore warnings the Iranians flood radio channels with.

The “how dare they arrest any American” nationalist screams aren’t even trying to report the story. Playing armchair QB discussing how the Iranians might be humiliating the Navy crew — hurting their pinkie fingers behind their heads is actually anti-reporting.

OMG, maybe the US should rip up the nuclear deal that Obummer so weakly got us into. Because, this obviously shows the world they’re not living up to their promises. And, multi-lateral shulty-lateral. Treaties are ours to do how whut we want! USA! USA!

Except, whoops! The opened diplomatic channels formed through the nuclear deal negotiations made clearing up our errs a quick cakewalk. It made sure our warriors are back in the homeland hugging their little ones.

Mmmmm. Diplomacy.

Mmmmm. Peace.

The world is changing for the better. The last thing any of us needs is a return to the dark and dangerous reign of an off-the-rails Republican regime.

You’ve Got the President in your Car. You Aren’t Going Anywhere.

Comedians in Cars Obama Title WPFB

By now, you’ve heard about Jerry Seinfeld opening his season with Barack Obama his first guest on his Crackle Network show “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” If you haven’t, and plan to, this essay only kind of spoils.  Not really, though.

This essay is just a handful of photo stills from the show. Not trying to re-tell the story you have to see, Just pretty much revisiting some of the funner parts from MY perspective that if you did see it, you’ll remember. Obama showed himself to be a really down to earth cat. You really have to see the entire show, though. You’ll get what I’m meanin’.

Seinfeld matches a car’s personality with his guest’s. Very similar to how it works out with lowly musicians getting to play the world’s most valuable Stradivarius string specimens, the cars used by the show are owned by the sickly-0-rich and loaned for the show. The owners are given credit, of course; then the cars’ absorb their famous guests’ energy. The value of this already Corvette Stingray just shot through the roof.

CCGC Obma0cFB.jpg

So, for the coolest President of all time, what car is cool enough but a ’63 Corvette Stingray. I won’t detail the thing, ‘cos you probably know, and I’ll let Seinfeld go it. Watch the show. Here are some stills just for grins:

Cruising down DC suburban wqay in the crisp winter air:


A couple shots from the side.

From the front, like looking into the face of a torpedo.


And, of course, looking right into the tailpipe, the last thing you see as it flashes by you.


Ok, the show. Seinfeld had a hard time getting the Prez to realize he was there. Dude doesn’t stop working to sleep.


CCGC Obma01aFB

Got his attention and got him in the oval office. Where he immediately made himself very at home.

CCGC Obma01bFB

Miraculously, Secret Service was able to get Seinfeld enough security clearance to get POTUS into the Stingray. The agents must have been crapping themselves. Especially when Obama took the wheel.

I guessed before air that Seinfeld wasn’t getting Obama off the grounds of the White House. Turns out, he tried. No dice. Like the title of this essay, “Sir, you have the President in your car. You’re not going anywhere.” The front gate Secret Service guard was a star.


Obama did manage to get behind the wheel for a bit.


It was here that we learned that even when Obama tried making it out while he was driving, no dice.

CCGC Obma02aFB

Another Secret Service agent offered them assistance getting into the car they would be taking. Another guess of mine prior to air. “The Beast.” On a kind of super-tank frame that could withstend an IUD and probably a surface to surface missile. They still wouldn’t let them off the grounds.


They did get to drive around the grounds a bit on the way to having coffee in the White House Kitchen made into a little makeshift cafe.

It was on this little jaunt that we learned the Commander in Chief can talk to a nuclear submarine on the way to dinner, and no, Seinfeld doesn’t get a souvenir Presidential seal for h

is back seat.



So, they had coffee that Seinfeld made for POTUS on White House equipment. They volleyed banter. We learned that both are witty; both are funny; Obama needs anything, it’s a phone call away; and that the Prez only wears one color of boxer briefs.

In the end, Jerry couldn’t find his way back to his car and loitering became tresspassing in the garden outside the Oval Office. The Prez had to ask Secret Service not to hurt him. No word on whether or not Seinfeld took a black site trip, or not. Episode II hasn’t aired yet.
