Berners and Progressive Lefties, The fishing line this morning is getting kind of heavy to load all of the comments, so I’m starting a new one here. This is mainly a jump with news about Trump’s Administration and outliers.
Hello Birdies, I see we need a round up of news and an open thread. I’m updating last night’s post. Jane Sanders was on Blitzer’s Show. He questioned her more about the shooter being a former Sanders supporter than condemning the violence and reporting about gun violence issues. He used a clip of Bernie’s speech from PS, saying Trump was :one of the most dangerous presidents”, inferring that Bernie Sanders’ words directly (or indirectly) influenced or inspired the shooter to shoot the congressmen. The She pushed back, saying the media tried to make it scandal, rather than reporting on the … Continue reading →
Mrs Merkel said she wanted friendly relations with both countries as well as Russia but Europe now had to “fight for its own destiny”. […] “The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I’ve experienced that in the last few days,” Mrs Merkel told a crowd at an election rally in Munich, southern Germany. […] The relationship between Berlin and new French President Emmanuel Macron had to be a priority, Mrs Merkel said. — BBC There are multiple threads here. Clearly EU allies were not pleased with the current US administration’s unwillingness to commit to … Continue reading →
April Showers bring May Flowers on the month’s ides. Let’s get to it as some of this news is not making the media conglomerates due to revelations of Trump’s continued incompetence as the commander-in-chief.
It’s Friday evening and so much going on today and this weekend… Bernie has a great takedown of Trump and his First 100 Days. More in the comments section! … Continue reading →

Yes, “Don the Con’” Trumps personal faith, his personal religion, is all based on the “Golden Rule” aka “Trumps Golden Rule” CLEARLY STATED IS: “Them that have the Gold makes the Rules”. On any question about why or what he is doing the answer is the same: he always uses some version of the “Trump Golden Rule”, such as: Question: “Why did he appoint that Billionaire to that position?“ Answer: because, “Them that have the Gold makes the Rules”. Question: “Why does Trump believe about protecting the environment?” Answer: “Them that have the Gold makes the Rules” Question: “What does Trump believe about … Continue reading →
I am sick, stomach upset, ill, extremely depressed. 25 initial thoughts on the 2016 election (in no ranked order): The Democrats had a VP candidate that would have guaranteed victory in nearly every state they lost that mattered. Trump and Sanders appealed to the same voter. Voters trusted Sanders more. Not sure where in the world we might go to escape his hate Everything that I believe in Trump hates Trump is a mean sociopath that only cares about himself – not Democracy – not anyone else The Democrats had a candidate that would have beaten Trump if they had … Continue reading →

Good morning peeps! I decided to begin my Sunday morning with a jelly doughnut, cup of coffee and some tongue-in-cheek humor. So, with out further adieu here’s Redacted Tonight’s Lee Camp and their report “The Dark Money Special” “He explains in infuriating hilarity the insane new leak showing just how corrupt Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is. This leak reveals how deeply tied into a dark money web he really is. This corruption has far-reaching implications for what’s happening in our country, as our democracy continues to be hijacked by corporate, pay to play, quid pro quo, special interests. Lee … Continue reading →

I’ve been thinking about Trump, and the night-and-day reactions he gets from 1) the redneck bigots who come out in droves to support him, and from 2) us, folks horrified that anyone could ever like him, or be fooled by him, or seriously think of him as a Presidential nominee. I found that many of the thoughts I was struggling with were contradictory, so I wrote it down as a dialogue. Please jump in in the Comments if you like, and contribute or react to the enormous generalizations below 😉 … Continue reading →
My first post! So, today Jennifer Rubin, right-wing columnist on the WaPo, wrote something that I find myself agreeing with. SMH. Why are “conservatives” on the side of the truth here? I made a comment on a WaPo article today in reply to a football-spiking Clinton fan who claimed she’d been exonerated, saying that she was hardly exonerated in Comey’s statement – he detailed significant wrong-doing – and I was accused of being a “winger” with “fantasies”! Good grief! It’s like we’ve fallen through the rabbit hole. https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2016/07/06/comeys-decision-and-what-it-means/?tid=hybrid_collaborative_2_na We therefore have an odd result. We and many other conservatives who … Continue reading →
In Fairbanks, at Summer Solstice the city regularly sponsors the “Midnight Fun Run”. People run a limited course through neighborhoods in the middle of the night because it isn’t dark! (You’d be surprised what this does to your energy level, not to mention your sleeping skills…) Spectator parties in all the neighborhoods are common, alcohol invariably involved and everyone has a great time, and few people actually run. But many participants dress up in costumes, usually humorous. A lot of great group costumes usually show up. Well, this year, the coup d’ grace was this costume: (from the Fairbanks Daily … Continue reading →
