It’s Thursday again, so it’s time for that combination of relief and wisdom we expect from Samantha Bee.  Here are three clips from her show.

I had not heard of the Congressional Review Act  ARGH!!

If Lyin’ Ryan is a moral watch dog, I’m glad I’m a cat!

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?

It’s Thursday, so here are c couple more fantastic videos from Samantha Bee.

Donald and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Sanctuary Cities


I’m proud Portland is a sanctuary city. However, let’s deport Melania.

The Original Trump Haters


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.



An April Treat

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.


…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

I’ll be watching, and here are a couple video clips from Sam.

Feb 022017

I’m running quite late, having just returned from Physical Terrorism with Courtney and exceeding previous benchmarks for speed and endurance. Due to the extra time spent in and waiting for Lift busses, it may be next week, before I have the Monthly Report done.  I’m already tuckered out, and I’m just starting to write.

Today’s took me 3:23 (average 5:11).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From YouTube (GQ Channel): Donald Trump is Aiding the Enemy | The Resistance with Keith Olbermann


The Republican Reich is a terrorist organization and has been since the days of GW ChickenHawk and Al Dubya.  RESIST!!

From YouTube (Full Frontal Channel): The Not-A-Muslim-Ban Muslim Ban


This is a down payment. I’ll bring some more Sam tomorrow.  RESIST!!

From NY Times: President Trump, seeming to relish a fight with Democrats over his nominee to the Supreme Court, encouraged the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, on Wednesday to invoke the so-called nuclear option and abandon the 60-vote threshold for confirmation.

“If we end up with that gridlock, I would say, ‘If you can, Mitch, go nuclear,’” the president said.

I hate to say it, but I predicted Republicans would invoke the nuclear option for the Supreme Court if they ever managed to steal the White House again.  RESIST!!




Sam Marches On!

Because we need relief from the horror and outrage we experience daily, because we live in a Republican Reich under the tiny thumb of Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten, I pleased to share Samantha Bee with you.  Here are two clips from her show last night.  In the first, she shows us a few fools Trump Supporters.

Get Your Gloat On


How do we spell I-D-I-O-T-S?  In the second, she revisits the Women’s March.

Who March the World? Girls




Jan 192017

This is the last day of comparative national sanity in the US, and it is my prayer that we all will have survived to celebrate together on the day it returns.  As I see it, the earliest possibility is four years from now, because even if the Perverted Puppet is impeached on Monday, the Pensive pseudo-Christian Psycho is no better.  Tomorrow, Politics Plus will have a day of mourning.  I will post a graphic  announcing it and will spend the rest of the day isolated from political affairs.  It’s bad enough that I have to suffer through another Republican Reich.  I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit and watch that vile pile of excrement rub our noses in it.

Short Takes:

From YouTube (GQ Channel): Trump’s Devious Plan to Destroy the White House Press Corps | The Resistance with Keith Olbermann


Isn’t it interesting that Keith and Robert Reich are mirroring each other.  RESIST!!

From YouTube (Full Frontal Channel): Swamp Dwellers


That’s not just Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten. It’s how all Republicans "drain" swamps.  RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Moving vans arrived at the White House on Wednesday to remove all traces of competence and dignity.

Working around the clock, movers started clearing out the optimism and progress that had accumulated during the past eight years.

“Once we’ve packed up that stuff, we’ll start moving out the wisdom and maturity,” one of the movers said. “The guy who’s moving in wants all of that gone.”

After the movers complete their work, a cleaning crew will come in and scrub the White House of every last speck of compassion.

That’s more straight news from Andy.  RESIST!!
