I’m sure you all know that  The Republican Party has murdered Net Neutrality.  Yesterday Freya pointed me to a petition to urge Congress to override the decision, which they may do, but I have no realistic hope that the Republican Reich would consider, let alone pass such a measure.  Your ISP must tell you if they regulate any content, so read every word of the flood of fine print that’s coming.

Like many other celebrities, late night hosts were not happy to learn that the Federal Communications Commision (FCC) voted down net neutrality rules, rescinding customer protections that inhibit Internet service providers (ISPs) from slowing down, blocking, or charging more for certain content…

I fully believe we will get Net Neutrality back, but either the lawsuits being filed must win, or we have to take back Congress.

It’s been a busy day with a lot of time spent sorting out what Amazon Prime Now does and does not have for next week’s grocery order.  It’s also the coldest day of the year so far.  I just learned that both Corker and Rubio have signed off on the Tax Scam.  Grab your ankles!

From YouTube (MSNBC Channel): Weak President Trump Political Clout Further Eroded By Election Losses

 

Republicans are so devious that, to win a close race, they will get their Fuhrer to endorse the Democrat in that race. RESIST!!

From Daily Kos: Quinnipiac University did a national poll with a few questions about Donald Trump. Among the highlights (or lowlights) was what happened when they asked voters for the first word that comes to mind when they hear the name “Donald Trump.” The results are not going to make the notoriously thin-skinned megalomaniac happy. Here are the top responses:

#1 — IDIOT

#2— LIAR

#3— INCOMPETENT

Given more than one word, the responses were not much better for the deeply unpopular Trump:

I would have picked a MUCH better word! RESIST!!

From NY Times: 1. Record temperatures around the world

Last year, Earth reached its highest temperature on record, beating marks set in 2015 and 2014. While that partly reflected the influence of El Niño, a cyclical event in the Pacific Ocean that can raise global surface temperatures, a new study led by Thomas R. Knutson of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration concluded that the record warmth worldwide “was only possible due to substantial centennial-scale human-caused warming.”

Two separate studies also found that unusually high temperatures across Asia and the Arctic in 2016 “would not have been possible without human-caused climate change.” Such forceful assertions are rare: Typically, scientists will only go so far as to say that global warming made an extreme weather event more likely to occur. In these cases, they went further, finding that such extreme warmth could not have happened in a world without rising emissions.

About That Horse

When the election came, my prediction was spot-on.  I predicted that I had no idea who would win, and when the election came, I had no idea who would win.  On who did win, I could not be more pleased.  Watching the different wings of the Republican Reich sniveling and pointing fingers at each other could become addictive.  But about that horse… later.

1213JonesWin

Doug Jones, a Democratic former prosecutor who mounted a seemingly quixotic Senate campaign in the face of Republican dominance here, defeated his scandal-scarred opponent, Roy S. Moore, after a brutal campaign marked by accusations of sexual abuse and child molestation against the Republican.

The upset delivered an unimagined victory for Democrats and shaved Republicans’ unstable Senate majority to a single seat.

Mr. Jones’s victory could have significant consequences on the national level, snarling Republicans’ legislative agenda in Washington and opening, for the first time, a realistic but still difficult path for Democrats to capture the Senate next year. It amounted to a stinging snub of President Trump, who broke with much of his party and fully embraced Mr. Moore’s candidacy, seeking to rally support for him in the closing days of the campaign…  [emphasis added]

The Fuhrer actually says he knew his co-pervert couldn’t win.  That’s a load of bull, but about that horse… later.

Here is Jones’ victory speech.

Now, I know I’ll be objecting to lots of his positions and, when I do, reign me in and remind me of the alternative, and about that horse… later.

Lawrence O’Donnell covered Doug’s win and Bannon’s reaction.

Bannon is a horse’s ass, and about that horse… later.

Warren-McConnellDemocratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to seat newly elected Democratic senator, Doug Jones, “without any delay” in a Wednesday tweet.

Jones defeated his Republican opponent, accused child molester and harasser Roy Moore in the Tuesday Alabama special election for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former seat in the upper chamber. Warren’s tweet comes as a clear effort to reduce the slim Republican majority before the passage of major tax reform and spending legislation.

McConnell indicated the newly-elected Alabama senator would not be seated before the end of the year when asked about the timeline Tuesday.

“Sen. Strange is going to be here through the end of this session,” McConnell told reporters referencing Luther Strange, who was appointed by the Alabama Governor to occupy the seat following Sessions’ departure…

Bought Bitch Mitch took the opposite position on seating Scott Brown beat Martha Coakley in the special election in 2010.  But Bought Bitch Mitch is also a horse’s ass.  And about that horse, kudos to the NY Daily News.

From YouTube (RWW Channel): RWW News: Alex Jones: Trump’s Accusers Aren’t Attractive Enough To Be Believed

Barf Bag Alert!!

 

What Alex Jones knows about women would fit on the head of a pin with room to spare. RESIST!!

From Think Progress: Moments after calling the Alabama U.S. Senate race for Democrat Doug Jones, Fox News pondered what the defeat of Republican Roy Moore — a candidate who faced numerous credible sexual misconduct allegations — could mean for President Trump, who has himself been accused of assault by 14 women.

“Laura, to your point, I think that this is going to embolden Democrats to use this issue, specifically against this president,” host Bret Baier said, addressing Laura Ingraham’s commentary earlier in the show.

“Yeah… if they’re able to take out a Senate candidate in Alabama with these allegations, as lurid as they were, what does this mean for the umpteen number of Democrats who will inevitably come forward to urge the president to resign, the constant re-airing of the old allegations that were aired last October — October 2016 — and putting this pressure, Brit, all the way to 2018 midterm elections, the war on women redux,” Ingraham said. “I think we see this all the way through 2018.”

Barf Bag Alert!!

 

What ugly propaganda! I think that after having to stay in hiding for decades, abused women are out of the closet and demanding to be heard. That will not stop. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Moments after his stunning defeat in Alabama’s special U.S. Senate election, the Republican candidate, Roy Moore, told reporters that he was planning to cheer himself up by “heading to the mall.”

“If people think they’ve seen the last of Roy Moore, they are sorely mistaken,” a visibly devastated Moore said. “I’m going to get back up, dust myself off, and head on over to the good ol’ Gadsden Mall.”

But Moore’s plans for a rejuvenating return to his former stomping grounds hit a snag upon his arrival at the mall, where he found an impromptu victory party for the Democrat, Doug Jones, in full swing.

Adding insult to injury, security guards who recognized Moore from his mall-prowling days nabbed the disgraced Republican and hurled him from the premises.

Dang Andy!! FOMCROTFPIMPLMAO! RESIST!!

Faux Noise Cover Up

 Posted by at 1:47 pm  Politics

As far back as remember, there were two thinks I could count on about news from the Republican Reichsministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise.  That’s where one could find women with the biggest breasts, lowest cut dresses, highest hemlines, and willingness to put them all on display.  That’s where one could find a steady stream of Republican lies masquerading as news.  That hasn’t changed, except for one thing.  Recently it has been more extreme than normal, and directed at the people investigating Trump, especially Robert Mueller.

1211FauxNazis

Former Washington Post reporter and Watergate investigative journalist Carl Bernstein said on Sunday that Fox News hosts are now President Donald Trump’s co-conspirators because they are “abetting a cover-up” by attacking special counsel Robert Mueller and undermining his investigation. Mediaite.com said that Bernstein was appearing on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” when he said that it could be obstruction of justice or a criminal matter that the White House is hiding, but Sean Hannity, “Judge Jeanine” Pirro and others are aiding and abetting in its concealment. “It abets a cover-up because there is a cover-up going on in the White House and among Trump’s aides and former aides relating to the investigations,” Bernstein told “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter. “We don’t know what the cover-up is about, whether it constitutes an obstruction of justice or a criminal conspiracy at this point.”

Here’s the embedded video.

This all begs a question.  Why is this happening now?  I strongly suspect that the Mueller is closing-in on Trump to such a great extent, that the Republicans are preparing the way to kill the Mueller investigation.  Watch closely.
