It’s Monday.  I’m not taking a nap this morning, because I had a lot of paperwork to so, and now that it’s done, I’ll just write earlier than usual and publish right after lunch.  That’s probably a good thing, because I’m battling a mild case of Republicosis again.  I seem to have that more often since my gall bladder was removed, so I think I’m going to cut out stool softeners, except for when I have Republicitis.  In the other hand, that might not be it.  Since there has been an asshole in the White House, mine has decided to RESIST!! Sad smile

Short Takes:

From Media Matters: Buzzfeed News has obtained and published “an explosive cache of documents” confirming Breitbart as the mouthpiece for neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the racist right-wing movement known as the alt-right. Buzzfeed’s entire report on Breitbart management’s courting of neo-Nazis and white supremacists can be found here.

Breitbart actively courted and solicited neo-Nazis and white supremacist leaders for stories, even allowing them to contribute ideas and kill stories [emphasis original]

Click through. This is too horrid to ignore. RESIST!!

From Daily Kos: San Francisco 49ers Safety Eric Reid had something to say after his team lost to the Indy Colts in overtime — 26-23 — the game which Vice-Resident Mike Pence staged a planned publicity stunt walk out on to whine-protest players exercising the first amendment rights to protest the extra judicial executions of young black men by bad police officers.

Talking to reporters in the locker room Reid said:

"My honest reaction: … Does anybody know the last time he’s (Pence) been to a football game? With that being said, he tweeted out a three-year-old photo of him at a Colts game, so with the information I have, the last time he was at a Colts game was three years ago. So this looks like a PR stunt to me. He knew our team has had the most players protest. He knew that we were probably going to do it again. This is what systemic oppression looks like. A man with power comes to the game, tweets a couple of things out and leaves the game with an attempt to thwart our efforts. Based on the information I have, that’s the assumption I’ve made."

I’d say that’s a safe assumption Eric, and well stated.

I’d say it’s a safe assumption too, since Trump has admitted telling Pence to leave.  WE paid for one damn pricey photo-op!  RESIST!!

From NY Times: The White House on Sunday delivered to Congress a long list of hard-line immigration measures that President Trump is demanding in exchange for any deal to protect the young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers, imperiling a fledgling bipartisan push to reach a legislative solution.

Before agreeing to provide legal status for 800,000 young immigrants brought here illegally as children, Mr. Trump will insist on the construction of a wall across the southern border, the hiring of 10,000 immigration agents, tougher laws for those seeking asylum and denial of federal grants to “sanctuary cities,” officials said.

As much as I want to protect the dreamers, Trump is charging too high a price in his Republican oppression of other undocumented Latinos and their families.  RESIST!!

I overslept this morning and have been running behind ever since.  Tonight my Broncos go to worship in San Francisco.  Rumor has it that their opponents are all tight ends and wide receivers. Winking smile  I shall be meditating on the Holy Ellipsoid Orb, of course.

From Daily Kos: Brad Thomas is the author of The Trump Factor—whatever the hell that is—and an advisory member of Trump’s league-of-people-who-are-disappointing-their-families. He was on Velshi and Rhule’s MSNBC show trying to do some damage control for the Trump administration after a slew of CEOs decided being a part of the president of the United States’ council was bad for business.

 

All journalists should nail Republican liars to prevent them from spewing their disingenuous propaganda just like that! RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Attacking the media for its “very unfair” coverage of Monday’s solar eclipse, Donald J. Trump said on Saturday that the sun was equally to blame for blocking the moon.

“The fake news is covering the eclipse from the sun’s side instead of the moon’s side, but if you look at it from the moon’s side the sun is blocking the moon’s side,” he said. “There are so many sides you can’t count all the sides.”

Additionally, Trump tore into the sun itself, calling it a “showboat” for its role in the solar eclipse.

“The sun thinks the world revolves around it,” Trump said. “Sad.”

Andy, after this week, even that could be straight news. RESIST!!

It’s another hot sticky day, and I’m so sick of needing a shower ten minutes after the water is off, I could scream.  On the plus side, if the forecasts are correct, today is the last day in the 90°s for at least two weeks.

Religious Message:

After months of languishing in misery, deprived of the holy light from the Ellipsoid Orb, the blessed Orb is returning, so for me, today is a holy day.  My Broncos are traveling to worship this evening with a team so indecent that they go around Bear.  I shall be meditating this evening.  May the holy Orb shine its light on my Broncos.

From YouTube (RWW Channel): Rick Joyner Is Not Worried About North Korea Because Trump ‘Is Really Open To Words From The Lord’

Barf Bag Alert!!

 

The problem with Joyner’s notion that Trump is "really open to words from the Lord" is that Trump’s lord has cloven hooves and carries a pitchfork. RESIST!!

From DC Report: Donald Trump went to war Tuesday with his former campaign manager, the global influence peddler and Kremlin-friendly Paul Manafort. We know this because of the top article in today’s National Enquirer, which often acts as an attack dog for Trump and hushes up stories he wants to be kept quiet.

“Trump Advisor Sex Scandal—Paul Manafort’s Sick Affair,” the tawdry tabloid’s headline screamed. “Target in FBI-Russia probe also cheated with a woman half his age!”

Not only is Manafart under the bus, but also, for the first time in history, the National Enquirer is reporting straight news. RESIST!!

From Raw Story: Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is itching to play himself on Saturday Night Live after quitting his Trump administration job.

During his first months as press secretary, Spicer became a favorite target of the NBC live sketch show when Melissa McCarthy repeatedly lampooned the embattled White House staffer.

This week, sources told Us Weekly that Spicer is now “angling” to take a crack at showing off his own comedic skills.

“He is asking people about getting on — it was his idea!” one source told the publication.

Melissa McCarthy is a far better Shitty Spice than Shitty himself. Here’s proof.

RESIST!!

From Newsweek: A former Republican senator has suggested that Donald Trump is “sick of mind” and should be removed from office.

Gordon Humphrey told New Hampshire lawmakers in a letter that has been widely shared that they should back his bid to dump Trump.

In a letter sent to Representative Annie Kuster, Humphrey urges her to back a bill that would set up an Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity to decide whether Trump is fit for office.

"Donald Trump is seriously sick. He is dangerous," read Humphrey’s letter, which he shared with news station WMUR on Wednesday.

Dang! It’s not very often that I find myself in complete agreement with a Republican!  Unfortunately, the commission would be meaningless.  Congress’ only remedy is impeachment.  To declare Trump unfit, getting Pence and the majority of Federal Department Heads to agree that he is unfit, as the 25th Amendment requires, is very improbable, and only removes him temporarily.   RESIST!!

Yesterday’s high was 101°, 6° hotter than forecast, and breaking another all time record for the date, in addition to smoke.  Today is the "cool" day, with only 93° forecast.  We may have a week in the 80s°, starting a week from tomorrow.  Even giving myself a whore’s bath daily, I can’t stand myself.  Squatch had better hide, because we have a south wind.

The weather is gruesome here in Portland with 90° forecast and humidity over 50%.  The eye is still progressing very nicely, except that wearing a metal shield at night is very uncomfortable, and it interferes with my sleep.  Oh well, Monday is the last night for that.  I’m really looking forward to getting the other side done.  May you come  to see the day that the term "Republican" is a distant memory.

Authentic Christianity is not related to this garbage. This Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian is a typical example of dominion theocracy. Increasing one’s level of power then depends on increasing one’s level of hatred now. RESIST!!

From Daily Kos: Here’s a heartwarming story about a little billionaire engine that could. Politico is reporting that billionaire GOP donor Mike Fernandez is so unhappy with how the Republican Party is acting these days that he is finished giving money until they get their act together.

“All the Republicans who hide behind the flag and hide behind the church, they don’t have the f—— balls to do what it takes,” Fernandez told POLITICO Florida in a telephone interview on Thursday.

Fernandez, a Miami-area resident, has long been a political rainmaker and donor, spending $3.5 million in ads against Trump in 2016 alone. He has, however, grown disenchanted with the direction of political leaders at both the state and federal level. He left the GOP due to Trump.

I can’t blame him for being angry. But, Mr. Fernandez, how do you really feel?

He called Trump an “abortion of a human being,” and hammered the New York developer in the harshest terms possible.

“If I was the doctor and knew what that baby would do, I’d have made sure it never would have seen the light of day,” he said of the president.

Kudos to Fernandez. All people of conscience, who are traditional Republicans, owe it to themselves and to America to leave the party and rejoin the human race. RESIST!!

From NY Times: Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned Friday after telling President Trump he vehemently disagreed with his appointment of Anthony Scaramucci, a New York financier, as his new communications director.

After offering Mr. Scaramucci the job on Friday morning, Mr. Trump asked Mr. Spicer to stay on as press secretary, reporting to Mr. Scaramucci. But Mr. Spicer rejected the offer, expressing his belief that Mr. Scaramucci’s hiring would add to the confusion and uncertainty already engulfing the White House, according to two people with direct knowledge of the exchange.

Mr. Spicer’s top deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, will serve as press secretary instead.

Good riddance to Shitty Spice, but Upchuckabee Sanders is no improvement. As for Scaramucci, he’s just Bankster beefcake barf! Appointing him was an act of class warfare.  RESIST!!

From Think Progress: A reporter has been arrested for pressing Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price to say whether or not the Trump health care bill would make it harder for domestic violence survivors to obtain insurance.

West Virginia police arrested Dan Heyman at the state capitol Tuesday as he walked with Price and White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, holding a recorder out and asking Price repeatedly about claims that insurers could refuse to serve survivors of familial abuse. That claim is based on inference from the bill’s provision allowing states to abandon consumer protections from Obamacare with federal permission.

Heyman had sought out Price on his way into the capitol.

“At some point, I think [they] decided I was too persistent in asking this question and trying to do my job, so they arrested me,” Heyman told West Virginia Metro News. Heyman was later charged with “willful disruption of a governmental process,” according to the news service.

Republicans hate the First Amendment. RESIST!!

From Reuters: U.S. President Donald Trump will meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the White House on Wednesday to discuss Syria and a wide range of international issues, a senior U.S. official said.

It will be the highest-level contact between Trump and the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin since Trump took office on Jan. 20.

Putin’s Pervert has to check in with his boss’ representative. RESIST!!
