I’m waiting for Store to Door to arrive with my groceries.  They should be here shortly.  Wendy will be here this evening, and shower time cannot come soon enough.  My printer is working again.  It turns out that all it needed was a reboot.  Tomorrow I have an appointment with Amanda, my Prosthetist, to pick up my replacement new shoes make the final determinations on maintaining George and his supplies.  Therefore please expect no more that a Personal Update.

Today’s took me 3:26 (average 4:59).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From The New Yorker: In what some security experts fear could be a high-stakes war of Elton John lyrics, minutes after Donald Trump called Kim Jong Un “Rocket Man,” the North Korean dictator responded by calling Trump “Honky Cat.”

As he issued the Elton John-based attack, Kim warned that he had an extensive collection of the singer-songwriter’s albums and was prepared to weaponize every lyric in them.

Dang Andy! Nuke the SOB! Testing nuclear weapons is bad enough, but comparing Putin’s Pervert to a CAT is an intolerable act of war! RESIST!!

From Daily Kos:

Sweet merciful everything. GOP Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, who represents a traditionally Republican seat in Southern California that swung sharply against Donald Trump last year, has always been a nutcase, but now he’s taken his loony toons act to grand new heights:

Rohrabacher isn’t buying that conspiracy theory, but he’s deep into another—that Democrats were behind last month’s white nationalist riots in Charlottesville, Va. Oh, and calling them white nationalist riots is a liberal media deceit, he said.

"It’s all baloney," Rohrabacher said.

Under Rohrabacher’s scenario, a former "Hillary and Bernie supporter" got Civil War re-enactors to gather under the guise of protecting a Robert E. Lee statue there.

"It was a setup for these dumb Civil War re-enactors," Rohrabacher said. "It was left-wingers who were manipulating them in order to have this confrontation" and to "put our president on the spot."

No wonder Unterreichsfuhrer Rohrabacher is Putin’s favorite. RESIST!!

From NY Times: Senate Republicans, abandoning a key fiscal doctrine, agreed on Tuesday to move forward on a budget that would add to the federal deficit in order to pave the way for a $1.5 trillion tax cut over the next 10 years.

The Republican lawmakers, under mounting pressure to score a legislative win on taxes, say a tax cut of this magnitude will stimulate economic growth enough to offset any deficit impact.

How many times have we heard that lie before? They aren’t telling us that the taxes paid by billionaires will plummet, but a Republican tax cut will mean YOU and I pay more in taxes. RESIST!!

My dang printer is on the fritz again.  I think I know what’s wrong, that the cable connection jostled loose when Wendy was cleaning.  I think I can work around it until tomorrow night.  Today I’m missing my morning nap, because I cannot print my grocery list, which I usually read to Store to Door from bed.  So I’ll just publish and go down for my afternoon nap a bit earlier.  It’s a cool rainy day, and I’m thoroughly enjoying the cool air washed clean of smoke.  It’s time for Trump to take a vacation in Puerto Rico.  God help everyone else.

If the Fuhrer does resign, as Keith suggests, pseudo-Pence will pardon him very quickly. If both resign, Lyin’ Ryan will pardon both. RESIST!!

From The Last Word: GOP gives up on bipartisanship, backs new Obamacare repeal

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) is pushing a new ACA repeal-replace bill that has gained GOP backing but violates his own “Jimmy Kimmel Test.” Fmr. Medicare and Medicaid Administrator Andy Slavitt and Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin join Lawrence O’Donnell.

If we can stop RepubliCare, with its guaranteed death benefit, one more time, the reconciliation window will be closed for another year. This time, for the worst bill of all, Republicans have set aside ninety seconds total for debate.  Call your Senators!  RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Robert Mueller is renting a massive warehouse facility in suburban Virginia to accommodate the approximately forty cubic tons of evidence against Donald Trump that the independent counsel’s investigation is generating on a daily basis.

Employing over two thousand workers in a warehouse the size of seven football fields, the Mueller investigation has become the fastest-growing sector of the U.S. economy, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Working twelve-hour shifts, the members of Mueller’s evidence-storage team rarely leave the warehouse, where the punishing task of filing mountains of evidence against Trump proceeds around the clock.

Sorry, Andy. I just can’t buy that one. The space and staff size you suggest are just tiny fractions of the actual resources needed to store the evidence against Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten. RESIST!!

It’s that time of week again, and I’m happy to share four video clips from Bill’s show last night.  Enjoy!!

Monologue: Amnesty Don

 

"This is not bipartisan. This is bipolar." AMEN!!

Bret Stephens: Out of the Echo Chamber

 

In my own defense, I never made fun of Joni’s bread bags. I made fun of her pig nuts. I disagree with Stephens that the Trump Reich is a neurosis. It’s a psychosis.

It’s a super muggy day here in Portland, and we have four cool days starting tomorrow.  Tomorrow is a holy day and I shall be meditating upon the Ellipsoid Orb.  My Broncos are hosting the Cowboys in the afternoon game, but it will not be televised here. Crying face  I play Pam in our fantasy football league, which she leads, and she’s going to be damn tough to beat.  May the Ellipsoid Orb shine it’s holy light on your team, unless they are known for cow pucky!

Amen Jeff! Oregon leads the way! RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: In his most stunning deal yet with Democratic leaders, Donald Trump agreed on Friday to be impeached by the end of 2017.

Emerging from an Oval Office meeting with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a beaming Trump touted the deal for his imminent removal from office.

“Chuck and Nancy and I got a deal done on impeachment,” Trump said. “It was a good deal and it was a fast deal.”

Trump said that the Democrats had convinced him that agreeing to be impeached would make him soar in popularity. “People are going to love me for doing this,” Trump said. “They’re going to love it on all the channels.”

LOL Andy! He’s dumb enough, but Lyin’ Ryan would balk, unless he could impeach Pence too. RESIST!!

From The Rachel Maddow Show: Pence, up to his neck in Russia scandal, losing press secretary

Rachel Maddow looks at the growing list of White House departures, adding Mike Pence’s press secretary to the list, and noting the striking number of lies Pence has told about aspects of the Trump Russia scandal.

 

Pence is clearly guilty of Obstruction of Justice and much more. If we can just win the House next year, we can remove the Reich from power. RESIST!!

Rachel and Hillary

I was quite pleased with Hillary Clinton in her interview with Rachel Maddow last night.  She was the Hillary I had wanted to see the last time I published an article about her.  She was concise and personable.  Most important of all, she tore Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten a third sphincter, in addition to the one in the traditional location and the one under his nose.

Hillary Clinton appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show yesterday and she ripped into Donald Trump.

Clinton is back in the public spotlight this week with the release of her new book, What Happened. While other interviews have focused on her campaign and the election last year, Rachel Maddow wanted to know what Clinton thought about how Trump is doing.

The conversation starts with North Korean missile testing. Clinton said that Trump is being “played” by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. “This missile test[…] is sending a message from Kim Jong Un that he is not deterred,” the former Secretary of State said.

“[Diplomacy] needs to be happening right now. Get over the Twitter stuff,” she added.

Maddow then brought up reports that Trump mocked Attorney General Jeff Sessions so badly that he wrote a resignation letter. Clinton said that Trump “delights” in insulting and humiliating people, and that his understanding of power makes him dangerous…

I am sharing only the first of several clips from Rachel’s show.  If you let the video keep playing after the end, it should play the rest.  Or you can click through, and watch them piecemeal.

Lawrence O’Donnell interviewed Rachel to debrief her about her interview with Hillary.

Rachel said Clinton was a different person.  I agree.  I prefer this Hillary Clinton.

It’s that time of week again, so here are four excellent video clips from Sam’s show last night.  Enjoy!!

What’d We Miss: Tuggin’ Ted, Hurricanes & Humanity

 

She’s spot-on about how Republicans will retrench back into their racist hatred as soon as minority rescuers are no longer saving their lives.
