BREAKING: Sen. Susan Collins Refuses to Attend trump SCOTUS Pick Announcement

Susan Collins WP

Senator Susan Collins just let Trump know she won’t be attending trump’s Federalist Society / Heritage Foundation ball to announce their pick for “his” Supreme Court nomination.

This doesn’t mean she’s a NO vote, but, it doesn’t imply that she’s going to be a rubber stamp vote for dumbass, either.  Stay tuned.

That Time When the U.S. Became More Ridiculous than Hogan’s Heroes

Hogan's Heroes GOP WP.jpg

The other day, the monosyllabic Kansas trailer park Congressman chosen by trump to be his CIA stooge before being transferred into his job as our pretend Secretary of State got his dumb on.

He was shipped back to North Korea to try managing them as a bunch or “slant-eyed assets.” His aide explained to him what an “asset” was before he left, according to Pompeo’s twitter feed. It was apparent to readers that he was proud to use a new 2-syllable word.

Anyway, Pompeo knew he had to be on top of his game. He had a BIGLY handshake and a grand, oversized notecard-in-a-frame to hopefully sign.

Just like daddy did.

Of course, Pompeo came across like the ignorant clown he is, and the North Koreans chided both him and trump as soon as he was out of Korean airspace.

New York Times –> https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/07/world/asia/mike-pompeo-north-korea-pyongyang.html

And, that’s completely understandable. Sad, and angering to see any country — let alone North Korea — treating America like that. But, can they be blamed? I mean, while I ABHOR the Dick Cheney, I took some comfort knowing that when he was anywhere with anyone he inspired a good quivering. His counterparts around the globe knew there was some REAL fire in the room shooting from his demonic snout-holes.

Even the little Kim Jung Juniors that Pompeo was allowed to keep company with could recognize a turd in a punch bowl. They recognized trump’s envoy as the court jester he is after a casual glance at his comical mug. They saw clear as mom’s spring-cleaned windows that the trump Reich are their inferiors. They KNOW they consistently out-class, out-maneuver, and out-think all of them.

And, you know that China’s Intelligence is prepping Jong Un’s team. We are being represented by some real colonel Klink slapstick blitzkrieg morons. We’re out-classed by dregs of the world.

That makes US dreggier than the dregs

Until we rid the U.S. of trump and his entire Reich, we don’t stand a chance. God help us.

Bookstore Likes Bannon More than Selling Books

A nice woman was forced to stand behind Steve Bannon Saturday in line at the Black Swan Bookstore in Richmond, Virginia, where he regularly creeps.

Step back, right?

Black Swan WP

Well, the poor young girl did what any cornered prey would do in her unfortunate situation.  She warned him and his pussy-grabbing ways off.  The way anyone would:  She let him know she knew that he was a piece of trash.

Cue Captain America.  Well, this particular Captain America was the store’s owner, a whiny little toddler named Nick Cooke.   Nick scolded the girl for speaking to his friend Steve Bannon out of turn and asked her to leave.  She hadn’t paid for her book yet, so she told him:  “Maybe, no.”

Nick gave her a dirty look, dialed 911, and told her “I’m calling the police.”

She continued through the line, paid for her book, and sauntered out like a true thug, right?  She escaped before any police could make it there to save Bannon from shamed discomfort, the poor child.  Right?

So, seeing a promotional opportunity for his poor book store (books are kind of a dead language, right?  Like 8-tracks and poppers), Nick called the local newspaper and invited them over for the scoop.

A great thing for America.  Wise Nick schooled All of us, telling everyone that Maxine Waters “is a bad colored” for telling people to speak up and confront Nazi vermin when they see them in public.

He went on, “Bookshops are all about ideas and tolerating different opinions.”

All opinions sanctioned by the Right Wing White Nationalist / Evangelical hierarchies.  If they aren’t on that “tolerate” list you’re provided, you

Ban them!

Wikipedia  –>  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_censorship_in_the_United_States

The bookstore owner is protective of Breitbart mogul Steve Bannon’s feeings.  But Breitbart supports the White Nationalist movement.  Nick Cooke’s hero and their cause doesn’t just refuse to “respect” all opinions, they resort to BURNING them to emphasize their tolerant point.  Going full Lord of the Flies on

  • Books.
  • Tiki Torches.
  • Crosses.
  • The bodies.

Yeah, you get the idea.  Don’t EVER let Nazis — neo or otherwise — off the hook for their Goebbellian desire to control our thought processes for their sick gain.

By the way, Nick Cooke welcomes you to not waste money in his place of business.  But, don’t be completely repelled by the Swan, as it is one of the best places to Bannon-watch, being his hometown bookstore.  Loitering is encouraged. One might window-shop for things to buy from Amazon.com when one thugs their way home for din din.

Go to there.  Don’t bother dress up or spray any Axe.
Black Swan Books
2601 West Main St
Richmond VA 23220

Phone Nick:
(804) 353.9476

And, e-mail him.  Be kind, though.  Explain to him why you won’t be spending your money at his bookstore.  Behave as if Breitbart is looking because , they probably are.

Croatia slays Russia. Attacked by Trump.

Croatia Whoops Russia WP

Well, not really, but it wouldn’t surprise you. Congrats to Croatia. This wasn’t quite as much of a David / Goliath moment as the ’80 U.S. Olympic victory vs the Soviets, but, it’s up there.

This is all a Private Prison-for-Profit thing?

Betsy Devoss Feckless C-Word Again WP.jpg

What does a Secretary of Education do again?  Do they set  up concentration camps to profit personally on the internment of asylum seeker?  Well, this one does.  Betsy DeVos owns a company called Bethany Christian Service.

She charges YOU $700 per day — That’s a rent of $21,700 a month — to house her hostage children.  What is the Trump Reich paying YOU to room and board?  Yeah, they pay you NOTHING.

This is full-fledged Hitler.  It can’t be true.  FAKE NEWS, FAKE NEWS!  We should SNOPES this bizniz, NOW!

SNOPES  –>  https://www.snopes.com/news/2018/06/26/bethany-christian-services-family-separation-betsy-devos/

Well, OK then.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall?

I was really planning on giving Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the benefit of the doubt that she could work within the Democratic Party as an idealistic, young first-timer who slayed Goliath.  But, then, this:

Cortez and the Susan-Cunt WP.jpg

Basically, Crowley wasn’t expecting his district had been chosen by the Bern-or-Bust revolutionaries to sneak Bull Durham into the NY-14 and surprise attack an incumbent in true surprise fashion.

Sarandon tweeted about Cortez before the primary:

“On June 26th we have a chance to prove that real Democrats who only answer to their constituents, can win against Dems beholden to corporate money. “

That is heroic and exciting (minus Susan Sarandon being part of it).

The David / Goliath part is always inspiring.  Of course, it would have been nice had it been against a candidate that wasn’t a valued member of the force defending us all against Trump and a rabid neo-Nazi Republican party.

In the middle of a battle.

I mean, Cowley was set to take over for Pelosi to make him the Speaker of the House.  A Speaker of the House representing the NY-14.

Oops.  In the best case scenario, the people of the NY-14 just followed Bull Durham off a cliff.

 

I guess not everyone was thinking too far ahead.  But, Susan Sarandon; Bernie Sanders; and Jeff Weaver were always about the magic populism NOW.  Their shortsightedness helped bring us a Trump venereal disease into our pants.

It’s still OK that Ocasio-Cortez won.  She’ll be taken under the wings of Democrats she is very junior to.  She may grow into a fine representative in the future.  Unfortunately, the seniority that Crowley earned doesn’t transfer to toddlers, and the NY-14 will not have a representative on any committees — let alone chairing any, as their former representative did.

We just need to keep an eye on her like we keep an eye on Bernie and how we did with LIEberman and Webb.  They are all invasive species that can serve  purpose to the greater whole.  If they’re managed correctly.

Just poor, poor NY-14.  It’s like waking up with a Nov 9th  2016 hangover all over again.

Here are some of the responsibilities that Crowley was trusted with. Honors that NY-14 won’t be burdened with anymore:

RepCrowley2 WP

Crowley was the Democratic Caucus Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives, the 4th highest leadership position in the House Democratic Caucus.

Sarandon said that TO HELL WITH HIM. The crook was “beholden to corporate money.”

Sure, Susan. Your sage wisdom helped bring us Trump, and this one just cost the NY-14 all of this:

Rep. Joe Crowley had a coveted seat on the powerful Ways and Means Committee. He was on the Subcommittee on Social Security and the Subcommittee on Select Revenue Measures. Ms. Cortez sure won’t be near those seats.

Crowley was the co-chair of the Committee on Irish Affairs. He was the co-chair of the Rare Disease Congressional Caucus. He was He was the co-chair of the Congressional Musicians Caucus. He was the founder and Chair of the Bangladesh Caucus. He was the founder and Chair of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian-Americans. He was the former co-chair of the Animal Protection Caucusl He was a member of the Congressional Arts Caucus, the Congressional Historic Preservation Caucus, the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus, the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus, the National Service Caucus, and the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus.

Since 2005, he has consistently received ratings of 100% from NARAL, and 0% from the National Right to Life Committee.

In 2011, he opposed a bill that would have banned taxpayer funding for abortions. In the 2010 election he was endorsed by Planned Parenthood. In 2018, Crowley received a voting record of 100% from Planned Parenthood

Since 2007, he has received a rating of 100% from the American Public Health Association, American Nurses Association, and the National Breast Cancer Coalition.

Crowley has fought against the practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) both abroad and in the United States. In 2010, he introduced the Girls Protection Act of 2010, which would criminalize the transport of a female under the age of 18 years old to undergo FGM.

Crowley has been a consistent supporter of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (known as “Obamacare” or “ACA”). On March 22, 2010, he said, “I support the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a historic measure that will put families first when it comes to accessing health care coverage.” He opposed repealing the act and voted against a repeal on January 19, 2011. Also in 2011, he held an event to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the bill’s passage.

In 2015, he proposed a bill with Representative Sheila Jackson Lee encouraging the collection of data on the prevalence of FGM and create a plan to better prevent the practice, which is illegal in the United States.

In 2017, Crowley signed on to H.R. 676, The Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act in the House of Representatives. This bill was introduced by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in September 2017.

Crowley is a heavy critic of President Trump’s plan to build a wall on the U.S.–Mexico border and his decision to end DACA and Temporary Protected Status protection for qualifying immigrants in 2017. In 2017, Crowley introduced a bill that would grant green cards to undocumented workers who helped to recover and clean up New York City after the terrorist attacks on September 11.

RepCrowley1 WP.jpg

Crowley holds the view “that reducing barriers to investment, creating opportunities for small businesses, and providing equitable working conditions for all Americans can and should be part of our national economic policy” He has supported federal spending as a way to increase economic growth. In 2008, he endorsed the Financial Asset Purchase Authority and Tax Law Amendments which established the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP) and allowed the Secretary of the Treasury to buy assets from troubled financial institutions.

Crowley has advocated tax increases on the highest tax brackets, tax cuts for the middle class, and reduced defense spending.

When serving on the Ways and Means Committee he stated, “I really don’t see how it’s justifiable or sensible to give a tax cut to the wealthiest among us, but at the same time increase taxes on U.S. soldiers.”  He also applauded the 2009 Budget for ending the Alternative Minimum Tax, and ensuring tax cuts for 23 million middle class Americans.  In 2011, he opposed a bill that appropriated funds to the defense budget.

In 2017, Crowley opposed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, saying its only goal was to give more tax cuts to America’s top 1% than the working class. In December 2017, Crowley said in a floor speech, “It’s a scam and the American people know it. Is this a bill that helps people who are living paycheck to paycheck? Hell no.”

Crowley has proposed legislation to improve conditions for renters in his district. In September 2017, he introduced the Rent Relief Act, which would give a refundable tax credits to renters.

Crowley has a 2016 score of 95% from the League of Conservation Voters.

He was a member of the Friends of Ireland Caucus. He has worked on peace efforts for those involved in the conflict in Northern Ireland and securing refuge for those affected by the conflict. Crowley spoke out against President Trump’s effort to eliminate the position of United States Special Envoy for Northern Ireland. Eventually, Trump reversed this decision. Crowley was named Irish-American of the year by the Irish Echo in 2018.

Just so EVERYONE knows, Sarandon and Bernie didn’t help rid NY-14 of some evil DINO blue-dog type.  They gutted it of the best Liberal hope for it to thrive, as IT WAS ALREADY DOING.  No matter what comes from the Cortez candidacy — assuming she wins the general election — the district went from driving a Lexus to getting the feet horseshoe’d up for a good Flinstones car ride.  Congrats NY-14 for voting as DUMB as the Deplorables did when they elected Trump.

With Sarandon and Bernie’s help, BTW.

His Tax Fraud Uh Oh is Back

Tax fraud is something that doesn’t just go away.  It’s a body that gets dug up every time.  Help dig up some of Trump’s bodies.  We all know that a Defcon 1 nuclear emergency is close to being set up for the spike.

Well, Mueller and federal prosecution aside, NY can open up a full  investigation of Trumps tax returns, which he will NOT survive.  He knows it.

How does it happen?

We Need NY Governor Andrew Cuomo’s help.

Trump Taxes WP.jpg

Cuomo needs to have his Attorney General open up a Tax fraud case against the Donald.  NY AG Barbara Underwood has already filed a civil lawsuit against Donald and his three offspring concerning their using Papa Trump’s “charitable” foundations as veritable petty cash accounts for themselves.

Well, if they find dirty business going on, the state can look into Trump’s personal and business taxes.  Both state and federal tax records would be filed by the NY State Attorney’s office if fraud is indeed found. His tax records would then be made public.

Legally.

This is why we all have to contact our Democratic friend Andrew Cuomo and DEMAND that he recommend Barbara Underwood pursue this course.  Prosecute Papa Trump and his offspring for tax fraud.  Contact Governor Cuomo
