The Georgia Dumpster Fire Burn Continues

GA Special Election WP

And, in the end, it wasn’t all that close.  Ossoff tapped out.  There was voter suppression and voter intimidation rampant.  Those stories will surface.  And, like every other time:  nothing will be done about it.

Breathe.  This was Newt Gingrich’s old district.  Not a place Democrats waste money trying to flip.  Boy, we shre paid for a whole lotta nothing this time around.

In Flames in South Carolina

SC Special Election WP.jpg

This was expected.  This is never a place Democrats win.  Trump won here.  if it turned out that Donald really was screwing Ivanka; that Barron was their lovechild; and that there were four sons and there is early home video of him drowning them in a bathtub full of champaigne right before a 5-way orgy with Russian hookers, baby-hands would still win SC05.   They’re all pretty much focused on saving confederate war memorials.  They’re too far gone to save, really.

Therefore, we didn’t spend much DNC or DNCC campaign fundraisubg assets there.

We did pick up significant margins.  So, there’s that.

Extraordinary Measures

It was on this day in 1953 that the US executed Julius and Ethel Rosenberg for treason and espionage against the United States.

64 years ago, they fried in electrified chairs.

Rosenbergs WP

Sizzled.

History Channel –> http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/julius-and-ethel-rosenberg-executed

That was supposed to be a lesson to all those who would follow that there are consequences to one’s actions. Especially — ESPECIALLY — when those actions include colluding with an enemy of the state. Imagine what the punishment might look like if it included throwing US Presidential elections.

No, go ahead. It’s OK. Be like John Lennon. Imagine. There may be no facts in their inbred bubble, but Truth and Justice will always break through that kind of firewall.

Side note, Donald Trump was pretty much a toddler when the last US execution for espionage was carried out. Reminds me of a song of cycle:

Ossoff Will Win Because Karen Handel is Vile

Vote Ossoff WP

You all know Jon Ossoff. The fighting Dem in GA-06 — Deplorable Neoconservative Newt Gingrich’s old district — fighting to flip it Blue. Well, Jon is fighting fair and true and is up, albeit just by a hair.

Well, he will win because his opponent is a Vile rotting cancer on the dying Republican Party. In April, Ossoff’s Republican foil Karen Handel released an attack ad attempting to liken Jon with every cliche that US southerners dislike. San Francisco and Pelosi whatevers:

Sickening fearmongering to scare lowly-informed into forgetting that Handel is solidly behind the secret Republican bill that is attempting to rip healthcare away from over 20 million Americans.

Then, Handel’s fear-mongering was taken to a low-bar level, as her RW Neoconservative Republican campaign team conned Sgt. Grant McGarry into backing up her ridiculous and false narrative that likening Gold Star Family Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the parents US Army Captain Humayun Khan as TERRORISTS. Handel proclaims that Jon Ossoff is helping ISIS infiltrate the United States through the importation of double agents sneaked in as refugees.

Handel throws her feces on Ossoff’s record as a former congressional aide for U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson who had S//FRD security clearance as . Republicans claim he inflated his experience as a staffer for U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson. Of course Politifact Georgia found no evidence he exaggerated his resume, and there was left Sgt. McCrarry unfairly left dangling in the wind, looking like a liar.

Contrast these ads with Ossoff’s ads reminding Georgians how Karen Handel supports Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell’s efforts to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with the American Healthcare Act (AHA), which forget about the fact that the AHA is already owned by the American Heart Association, it robs 23 million Americans of their health care — preventing millions upon millions of women from receiving rudimentary cancer screenings.

End with an Ossoff ad that shows not how vile his deplorably-Republican is unfit, but hos HE is fit for the responsibility he’s seeking.

If you haven’t already participated in early voting, Please, PLEASE GOTV and help us RESIST Trump, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell by casting for Jon Ossoff!

Good News, Bad News, Outrageous

destroyer

Thankfully, the bodies of the seven missing sailors in the collision with the Japanese freighter were found in flooded compartments in the damaged destroyer. The families who were in shock with worry can now comfort each other and begin to heal.

CNN –> http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/17/us/missing-sailors-found/index.html

Unfortunately, Trump hasn’t bothered to appoint a Secretary of the Navy, nor has he made sure we have an ambassador to Japan. Our destroyer may sink in Japanese waters and there is no navy leadership to deal with it. The sailors’ bodies sit in a Japanese dock and their families can’t look to an American ambassador to help them deal with that.

That’s bad enough, but to add insult to injury, Trump is too busy to deal with it. On a Father’s Day Vacation at Camp David with the poster wife and weird son-grandson, “Barron.” Of course, he can still find time to Tweet about how evil Cuba is and how impressive his election win was. And, his wife coudn’t give a nickel about the whole thing.

Melania Tweet Camp David Sailors Missing

Late Breaking: Baby-hands tweeted and mentioned the missing sailors. He sent “prayers” though everyone knows he mocks the concept of there being a god outside of his impression of himself. He thanked Japan. For doing the job that he himself isn’t qualified to handle himself.

Dirtbag Russian double agent dirtbag. Our President, LOL. What a disgraceful day.

Schumer Calls Out SUPER-SHADY Republican Senators

Dem ACA Schumer Speech Header WPThe biggest news right now isn’t the monumentally epic Russian Spy US government takeover story. Nope. What’s going on in the shadows is even more frightening.

The video below shows Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sounded the alarm speaking in Senate chambers today. Following is Chris Hayes explaining exactly what Mitch McConnel is doing, with the help of Andrew Slavitt, the recently “recent” administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Here is a Washington Post article about the shady dealings, and below it, the video.

Bigotry Ain’t Cheap

Bigotry is Expensive WP

Helps to be obscenely wealthy and holding the purse strings to a failing empire hostage.  What Obama did ending 60 years of insanity towards Cuba was historic and worthy of another Nobel Peace Prize.

What Trump just choked up in an effort to erase any memory of the Black President out of an out-of-control bigoted spite is historic too.  Like gas chambers were historic.
