    Trump's meta-strategy, of overwhelming his prior offenses with new and more egregious ones, seems to be working. The number of offenses he has committed, which would have crippled any previous president, has become the hill from which he directs the dismembering of the USA.

    It's the Big Lie, writ large.

    This is not a joke or satire. This actually happened:

    https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/a...net-neutrality

    The NRA Gave Ajit Pai a Gun for Getting Rid of Net Neutrality

    Ajit Pai, the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, was surprised Friday when, instead of delivering prepared remarks as he had planned at the Conservative Political Action Conference, he was given an award from the National Rifle Association.

    The Charlton Heston Courage Under Fire Award is not given every year, explained Carolyn Meadows, the second vice president of the NRA. It’s only presented when a person has "stood up under pressure with grace, and dignity, and principled discipline."

    Citing the death threats Ajit Pai reportedly received as part of the backlash to his decision to overturn net neutrality protections, Dan Schneider, the Executive Director of the American Conservative Union, called Pai "the most courageous, heroic person that I know."

    It was because he rammed through the net neutrality repeal despite the fact that it was categorically rejected by the American public that the NRA gifted Pai with the title and the award, which is literally a gun: a Kentucky, hand-made long gun, to be precise.

    Er... so... trade wars are a good thing now?

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...-idUSKCN1GE1PM

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump struck a defiant tone on Friday, saying trade wars were good and easy to win, after his plan to put tariffs on steel and aluminum imports triggered threats of retaliation from trading partners and a slide in stock markets.

    The European Union raised the possibility of taking countermeasures, France said the duties would be unacceptable, and China urged Trump to show restraint. Canada, the biggest supplier of steel and aluminum to the United States, said it would retaliate if hit by U.S. tariffs.

    [...]

    Many economists say that instead of increasing employment, price increases for consumers of steel and aluminum such as the auto and oil industries will destroy more U.S. jobs than they create.

    Stormy scandal kicks up some dirt:

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/stormy...hush-agreement

    In an incendiary new lawsuit filed Tuesday, Stephanie Clifford—the adult film actress known as Stormy Daniels and who allegedly had an "intimate" relationship with Donald Trump a decade ago—claimed that the "Hush Agreement" she signed about their affair was moot and that she was now free to discuss it.

    [...]

    The suit includes a copy of the NDA that Daniels and Cohen signed, as well as a copy of a side agreement showing that she is referred to in the NDA as Peggy Peterson and Trump is referred to in it as David Dennison in order to keep their actual names out of that document.

    Daniels, the NDA states, "came into possession of certain 'Confidential Information' pertaining to DD," including "certain still images and/or text messages which were authored by or related to DD.

    She already reported, years before the NDA, that she spanked the guy's naked ass with a rolled up Forbes magazine with him and his family on the cover at his request. It's in her handwritten notes taken at the time (which if you're in law is taken as good evidence of authenticity). "Dirt" really has no meaning anymore.

    I just wanted to make some kind of a pun, but I guess I was too tired to come up with a good one. Otherwise, yeah, rich guy sleeps with prostitutes and porn actresses, film at eleven.

    Oh yeah, it wasn't the worst pun I've ever heard.
    As long as we're being dragged through this puke sewer we may as well entertain ourselves. I got no beef with that.

    The problem with puns is that they have to be natural yet distinct enough to stand out and draw attention to themselves. The "flip a burgher" pun was much better in that regard. Sometimes, the jokes write themselves with this administration though and I couldn't resist the temptation.

    To be fair, though, English is not the best language to write puns in to begin with. Too few homographs.

    You have to give Trump props for one thing: he always provides something for us to talk about.

    And yes, fuck everyone's "Whataboutism". It's right there in the title calling it a "cautionary tale", implying that it's somehow a uniquely horrible state of affairs....which it isn't. At least people caring about it might mean we get rid of Kushner.


    Although she does have a point that it's bizarrely unethical for a US president to be receiving Billions of dollars funneled to them from foreign governments.



    ANyways.....


    Expect the usual suspects to become bizarrely quiet about Mueller now that his probe has touched on the funneling of money by gulf states into US politics.

    The Trump administration, and Jared Kushner in particular, do indeed seem to be owned by a foreign entity. It's not Russia.

    On that topic, Colin Powell's former chief of staff did a talk that does a good of explaining the bigger context that all this "Russia" hysteria is taking place in. If you aren't familiar with the subject matter he covers its very difficult to understand what is happening with that conflict and what is going on with Trump's policies.

    This was particularly reaching. Just because folks are capable of thinking about the good aspects of socialism mixed into a capitalist democracy in no way by any stretch of the imagination means they like communism. It just means they CAN think and don't need folks like YOU scaring them away from thinking with some ridiculous red menace body snatcher bullshit. Are you afraid of considering a measure of socialism which works like health care in other countries? It is proven to work and helps folks. OOOOOOooooOOOOO scary! Red menace! Stop thinking immediately all you smarty pants people!

    Jesus Christ.
    The extreme Irony of you accusing me of buying into "ridiculous red menace body snatcher bullshit" in the current political climate aside, that's simply not correct. The Soviets orchestrated a large scale, ideological subversion campaigns to spread the idea of communism among the general populace generally targeting academic, media, and political leaders. How effective exactly this was we won't know but it appears to have been relatively so given the amount of favorable press that the USSR received during that period.

    Another good starting point is to read up on some articles about the Venona cables. It turned out in Hindsight that McCarthy's was basically correct: a lot of the specific people he accused had been named as Soviet assets in cables that the US had obtained by using a sub to tap an undersea line. He wasn't stabbing in the dark, it was based on specific intercepts.

    LONG interview here with a guy who did that in India. It's a longer topic than I can address here (even one book won't cover it. It's entertaining reading but a lot of it to get an idea of what they were doign) but the cold war efforts by the Russians to spread communism were rather extensive. It isn't just a book knowledge issue for me either as I know some people who's families were involved in the COINTEL efforts. For example, one of my friends had a father who was part of the old Nazi COINTEL operation, and was relocated here by the US military because they had contacts with the Soviets who were still useful. Chicago was a particular hotbed for this activity for some reason from what I'm told because they were constantly going there "for business".

    You might want to look up what the word nepotism means. It does not mean using a government office for personal gain, although there's certainly a lot of it going around in Lord Dampnut's administration.

    Also, lampshading whataboutism doesn't make it any more acceptable.

    That's the thing I like about the alt-right. They run around proudly proclaiming their love of trolling butthurt snowflake liberal crybabies, but damn if they're not the thinnest skinned bunch floating around on the internet today.

    "olol, I love it when Trump trolls the SJWs. They're so stupid. NOOO! OBAMA MIGHT BE GETTING A SHOW ON NETFLIX! THIS IS AN ATTACK ON REAL AMERICANS BY THE COMMUNIST MSM!"

    "slobering cocklust" added to standard dictionary. Thank you, dethtoll.

    So here's today's installment in the Wild Wild World of Trump...



    Trump's lawyers are offering Mueller an interview with the President in exchange for ending the investigation within 60 days of the sit down.

    Cunning plan or stupid move?

    I am thinking Mueller says, "No problem, Mr. Trump. Give me that interview and we can wrap this in a month."

    Sorry to pile on but when you are done with the previous post there's Trump's PA rally...

    No vulgarity is too great or personal attack too petty for Trump to indulge in. Very presidential.

    And Rex Tillerson is out, replaced by Mike Pompeo. Shortest tenure of a Secretary of State in modern US history.

    Criticized Russia yesterday, fired by tweet this morning. Coincidence? Maybe.

    Possibly, but who the hell knows?

    One thing's for sure, the coincidences seem to keep piling up with Trump and his administration.
