It’s another sunny day, so once again, I’m fighting the difference between cold air and a hot radiating wall.  Sweating and chilling at the same time really tires me out.

Short Takes:

From Daily Kos: As Minnesota Sen. Al Franken announced Thursday that he would resign over sexual misconduct allegations, he also drew attention to the undeniable irony of his exit amid congressional Republicans’ continued allegiance to a self-professed assaulter and hearty embrace of a sexual predator.

I, of all people, am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office, and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party. But this decision is not about me. It’s about the people of Minnesota.

Franken did the right thing by his constituency and the thirty-some Democratic senators who called on him to resign left him little choice.

We need more women in government. A woman’s place is in the House!  And it is in the Senate! And for Elizabeth Warren, it is in the White House! RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: In a new poll conducted on Wednesday, a sweeping majority of Americans said they support moving Donald J. Trump to Jerusalem.

The sixty-three per cent of survey respondents who approved relocating Trump to Jerusalem placed few conditions on such a move, other than that it take place “as soon as possible” and that it be “permanent.”

In other poll results, an overwhelming majority of respondents said that they would support relocating Trump to any number of other foreign destinations, including Russia, the Philippines, and “that station where scientists live at the South Pole.”

Andy, let him move to the origin of Ted Cruz: Uranus! RESIST!!

From TPM: Fresh off Project Veritas’ failed attempt to undermine the credibility of the Washington Post and other news outlets, the group’s leader, James O’Keefe, was honored as a “hero” Wednesday night by the conservative group United for Purpose.

O’Keefe accepted an “Impact Award” from Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, at the Trump hotel in Washington, D.C.  [emphasis added]

Every pervert in the Supreme Court is one pervert too many. Impeach TEAbag Thomas for multiple conflicts of interest. RESIST!!

This was the most devastating attack by a foreign power in US history, until Russia attacked us in November 2016.

I found an alternate delivery service for the time Store to Door is closed.  It’s a family business and costs much more than Store to Door, or Safeway.com, but I’d rather pay more than do business with Safeway.com, after the way they treated me.

Thanks Sam! Bingo! RESIST!!

From LA Times: Rep. John Conyers Jr. of Michigan, the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, stepped down today after his support among fellow Democrats collapsed amid accusations of sexual harassment by several female employees.

Here is the difference between Democrats and Republicans. We pressure our scandal-plagued members to leave office. Republicans give theirs a formal endorsement from their pervert Fuhrer and extra campaign cash from the RNC. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Hoping to put to rest a mystery that has long bedeviled the nation, Donald J. Trump’s personal lawyer, John Dowd, revealed on Monday that it is actually his voice that appears on the notorious “Access Hollywood” tape.

Speaking to reporters, Dowd said that the so-called locker-room talk attributed to Trump had actually been carefully crafted by the former reality-show host’s legal team and then read aloud by Dowd himself.

Additionally, Dowd said that comments widely thought to have been made by Trump indicating that he believed that Frederick Douglass was still alive were also Dowd’s handiwork.

“President Trump was about to say something about whether Frederick Douglass was alive or not, and I stepped in at that moment and said that he was,” Dowd said. “I stand by that statement.”

Dang it, Andy!! You just gave them the idea!! RESIST!!

From YouTube (PBS Channel): Elizabeth Warren says 2016 Democratic primary was rigged

 

See my Open Thread from yesterday. Liz admitted it and wants to face it, understand it and make sure it never happens again, exactly like I recommended yesterday. Great minds really do fall in the same ditch. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: After a memorable Monday, in which the special counsel announced criminal charges against three men associated with Donald Trump’s campaign, millions of Americans were sort of hoping that Robert Mueller would arrest someone new every day, a new poll indicates.

According to the poll, Monday’s news that Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, and George Papadopoulos had been charged may have unfairly raised Americans’ expectations that Mueller would be generating new arrests at the rate of at least three a day.

“Monday was one of the happiest days of my life,” one poll respondent said. “It started out great with Manafort and Gates, and then, bam, out of nowhere, Papadopoulos. I guess I started hoping all days would be like that.”

Andy, One a day just isn’t enough! RESIST!!

From The Miami Herald: This person managed to do the impossible: Shut down the Twitter account of the most powerful man in the world.

On Thursday, Trump’s digital mouthpiece vanished from cyberspace at around 6:45 p.m.

If you were looking for the president’s latest diatribe, you got the notice, “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!”

Whoever that employee was, give him/her a promotion and a raise! RESIST!!

I’m about to leave for my Prosthetist appointment and will finish this when I return.  I’ll do Sam’s vids tomorrow.  This is my only article today.

The Reich on the Left is right. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: In what might be his most startling allegation against his former election opponent, Donald Trump on Wednesday accused Hillary Clinton of deliberately losing the 2016 election just so that he could be impeached.

“How could one of the most experienced politicians in history lose to the most unfit candidate ever?” Trump asked reporters. “Crooked Hillary lost on purpose because she wanted me to be impeached.”

Explaining Clinton’s motives for intentionally sabotaging her quest for an office she had coveted for decades, Trump said, “Hillary Clinton is more than a nasty woman. She is an evil woman, and her sick mind is capable of anything.”

Trump said that instead of reporting the “fake story” of his campaign’s collusion with the Russians, the media should focus on Clinton’s “diabolical scheme to lose the election.”

Dang, Andy! That is no more absurd than what he really says! RESIST!!

From Politico: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC

When I was asked to run the Democratic Party after the Russians hacked our emails, I stumbled onto a shocking truth about the Clinton campaign.

Click through. Read the whole thing. Kudos to Bernie for the way he acted, even after he knew this. Kudos to Donna for the courage to tell the truth, even though she has been a Hillary supporter for years.  This is tragic, but we need to face this, understand this, and make sure this never ever happens again. RESIST!!

Please pardon my brevity.  One of the other tenants overloaded the power and kept knocking my AC out.  Eventually the clerk found which one and helped him spread the load, but I missed sleep during and more sleep after, because I was so tense.

From The New Yorker: In a ringing endorsement from the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos said on Thursday that she did the math on Donald Trump’s tax plan and that she estimates it will save the United States roughly eleventy krillion dollars.

“I took out a pencil and paper and figured it out the old-fashioned way,” DeVos told reporters. “I wound up going through a lot of paper, because eleventy krillion has ten hundredteen zeroes.”

DeVos stressed that the eleventy-krillion figure was actually a conservative estimate. “The exact number was between eleventy and ninety-quelve, but I rounded down to eleventy,” she said.

Dang Andy!! She sure is using her PhD in Bullshitology! 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!!
