I’m still sick, but my body demands a couple upright hours.  This is my only article today.  Congrats and kudos to Lona and the Netherlands for remaining a socially democratic republic.  I hope that one day, the US will become one.  In the meantime, I wonder of the Fuhrer will put Geert to work in the Rectum Reich.

Short Takes:

From The New Yorker: At a press conference on Tuesday morning, Ben Carson, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, told reporters that people who are pushed out of windows are “extremely lucky” because they get “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly through the air.”

“Ever since the dawn of civilization, mankind has been enchanted by the dream of flight,” Carson said. “People who get pushed out of windows get to realize that cherished dream.”

“That’s what makes America a great country,” he continued. “People are pushed out of windows every day here.”

Sorry Andy. I don’t believe you. The link between getting pushed out a window and the brief similarity between falling and flight is far too great an intellectual hurdle for Braindead Ben. RESIST!!

A Quack from the Fuhrer

Republicans have a love hate relationship with fear, as they seen to vacillate between spreading it to control deplorable sheeple and cowering it, lime the way Republican Senators and Reps are now hiding from their constituents.  From 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. came a mighty quack, the fearful sound of Fuhrer Drumphenfarten ducking the White House Correspondents Dinner.

trump-nazi-flags

No U.S. President has missed the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner since 1981. But one day after major news outlets were banned from a briefing with Press Secretary Sean Spicer, President Donald Trump announced that he’s breaking the 36-year streak.

The dinner, which dates back to 1921, is a time for the president and press to exchange jokes about one another, while reaffirming the important role that news outlets play in a democracy. On Saturday afternoon, Trump tweeted that he’s skipping the annual event.

I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!

Ronald Reagan was the last person to miss the event, but he only did so because he was recovering from an assassination attempt. Trump offered no explanation as to why he’s skipping the dinner, which is scheduled for April 29. But the decision is unsurprising given Trump’s hostility towards the press.

Just one day before Trump’s announcement, Press Secretary Sean Spicer prohibited CNN, the New York Times, BuzzFeed, and Politico from attending his daily briefing. He reportedly handpicked the news outlets allowed to attend, including well-known conservative organizations like Fox News, Breitbart, and the Washington Times. The Associated Press and Time decided to boycott in solidarity with the banned reporters…

Samantha Bee, host of TBS’ Full Frontal, announced on Monday that she will host an alternative event to the official one in Washington D.C. this spring. "Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” as it is being called, will be held on April 29th, the same night the White House Correspondents’ Association has told members to “save the date” for its event.

"The evening is sure to bring plenty of surprises, music, food, and laughter—and if you’re not careful you just might learn something. Specifically, you’ll learn how screwed we’d be without a free press,” Bee said in a statement about the event, which will serve as a benefit for the Committee to Protect Journalists. "We’re really doing this. This is not a joke,” she added.

In a conference call with reporters Monday morning, Bee confirmed that she has never been invited to host an official White House Correspondents’ Dinner and did not anticipate that she would be getting an invite this year given the nature of her comedy about President Trump

We’re Still Not There: A Practical Guide to Resistance

 

In my youth I was an officer in the New York Region of SDS. Some of what I did was "so called" busy work, and I remember an April 1967 march in NYC, before which I stapled so many signs to wooden handles that my hands were bloody from squeezing the stapler. Today I can use my writing to inform and motivate. What can you do?

Kudos Michael Forbes and the Scots! They knew Trump was not a Scot, because he lacks the equipment to put a tilt in his kilt.

In these evil days, how often do I get to say I have good news for you?  The White House Correspondents Dinner is on April 29.  Expect a dreary affair,  which only rabid sycophants will be allowed (or want) to attend.  The hooded minions from Breitfart, World Nut Daily, the Republican Reichsministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise, will have a grand time.  But there will be nothing there for decent people.  Thank goodness Samantha Bee has a cure for that.
