Another good ad.

Good punchline.

Thanks, Benny!

So Remember All Those Times Democrats Said Russia Hacked The French Election? About That

Included is an uncomplimentary clip of Franken playing the “Russia Bad” game. He seems quite establishment to me.

For whatever reason, be it a grudge with America or just good old-fashioned honesty, France is no longer playing along with this particular fabrication. Guillaume Poupard, the head of France’s cyber security agency, told the Associated Press that there was “no trace” of Russian meddling and that the hack of the Macron campaign was “was so generic and simple that it could have been practically anyone.”

This is important to keep track of, because the propagandists are about to shift away from this gaping plot hole in the narrative they’ve been spinning for a month, and soon all the brainwashed Democratic neocons are going to be speaking as though it never happened in a creepy display of real-world Orwellian doublethink. So let’s all get very clear on this before the revisionism begins: these people were indeed using the story about Russia hacking France’s electoral infrastructure to bolster their case for the still completely unproven allegation that Russia hacked the Democratic party in the 2016 US election cycle.

A vid of Paul Craig Roberts (worked in the Reagan admin. and is very accomplished), talking about the neoconservatives and how they’ve gained control and Russia. In Caitlin’s article today.

Bernie in England.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/02/world/bernie-sanders-jeremy-corbyn-election/

(CNN)At the first event on his whirlwind speaking tour of the UK Thursday, Bernie Sanders had nothing but praise for Jeremy Corbyn, the left-wing leader of the UK’s Labour Party, which is currently experiencing a surge in support ahead of next week’s general election.

Speaking to an audience in Brighton, a seaside town on the south coast of England, Sanders praised Corbyn’s willingness to address issues such as wealth inequality, poverty and class

There is a video at the link.

This tweet comes from Jim Messina. Does the name sound familiar. He was 2012 Obama Campaign Manager, former White House Deputy Chief of Staff. Proud Montanan.

Obama’s inner circle sure had some real winners.

Better Tory/Republican/Anything! than populist! Kinda like the old Better Dead than Red.

Scary! I find a certain convenience about what I hear about Trump tweets. I may join him. Scary! Sad! Bad!

Yesterday a small but noisy crowd (including me) marched with our dogs around downtown just as people were getting ready to enjoy artwalk and eat dinner on the sidewalks, protesting the downtown dog ban. (Read houseless person ban.) It was fun and Bella behaved. When we returned, Wayne had furnished lots of little bowls with kibble and lemonade for the humans. Fun.

I like Rainer’s hopefulness.

How The Bernie Sanders Movement Is Overcoming Cynicism

At this rate, by 2020, Berniecrats will control virtually every part of the Democratic Party’s state and local facets, as well as quite possibly virtually every state and local facet of American politics in general. In which case our 2020 Democratic presidential candidate (assuming Bernie isn’t drafted for a People’s Party by then, in 2020 our option will almost certainly be a Democrat) won’t be in danger of sabotage throughout the primaries by state Democratic officials, and we’ll be able to easily take the presidency.

But returning to more immediate subjects, thanks to the efforts of progressives who work towards change instead of asserting change for whatever reason can’t happen, some big aspects of the corporate state’s control are really starting to crack.

Since the seemingly logic-defying movement to get single payer health care passed in a time of unprecedented Republican control kicked off around early March, America has become closer than it’s ever been to joining every other major country in providing universal health care. After weeks of intense efforts from the 60% of Americans who support single payer to pressure their representatives into co-sponsoring the H.R. 676 Medicare for all bill, the proposal now has 93 congresspeople behind it-nearly half the Democrats in Congress.

He says the Sanders movement is “overwhelming cynicism.”

Justice Dems have another candidate, in Texas:

Candidates like our newest Justice Democrat, Ryan Stone.

Ryan is an accountant and city council member from a small town outside of Austin called Manor, Texas. The Democratic party has given up on communities like Manor. They can’t see past their red-state-blue-state blinders, and haven’t launched a serious fight for the 10th district in years.

But Ryan knows the progressive roots in Texas grow deep. On a recent visit to the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, he was reminded how many of the strides we made in the 1960s came from the charge led by that old Lone Star firebrand.

Ryan and his fellow Justice Democrats are ready to build on the foundation of FDR’s New Deal and LBJ’s Great Society. Together they will fight for Medicare for All and free college, along with billions in investments for infrastructure and new industries with steady jobs and living wages. He will fight for tax breaks for working people and small businesses, breaking up the monolithic corporations that control our political process and define our lives.

I am not sure that it will go all that far. LOL!

Tim Black is taking no prisoners.

A bit late don’t you think?

I don’t know. have most of them co-sponsored the single payer in the House? Are most of them really all for public campaign financing, and for actually representing us? I don’t have the same impression as this guy does. Do they want less war, or are they all egging on the whole Syria/Russia thing, with a little Iran and Ukraine thrown in.

They may sound good for a bit, here, but I’m not buying it yet.

I have absolutely no use for Huckabee but I must admit that I enjoyed his comments.

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/336229-huckabee-hillary-needs-to-get-over-herself

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Saturday said that Hillary Clinton needs to “get over herself” and stop blaming others for her election loss.

“Hillary needs to get over herself and quit blaming everybody,” Huckabee said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”

Huckabee, noting that he also twice ran unsuccessfully for president, joked that Clinton would soon record an album of “excuses” for her election loss.

“I don’t know if you know this, but she’s going to Nashville. She’s recording a new album, ‘Hillary’s greatest hits of one thousand and one excuses why twice I wasn’t elected president.’”

a record “album of excuses” is actually pretty funny. :O)

Trump is so proud of his arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

Likely more terrorism in London!

Asshole Trump tries to take advantage of situation.
