GUESS WHO IS “MYSTERIOUS AND IRRATIONAL?” MANCHIN OR SINEMA?

It started last night and then in a totally predictable way, Joe Scarborough amplified and continued it this morning. “It” is the newly minted narrative about the difference between Manchin and Sinema.  Both are holding up essential legislation to maintain a half-decent society.  But, one is doing so as a statesman and the other isContinue reading “GUESS WHO IS “MYSTERIOUS AND IRRATIONAL?” MANCHIN OR SINEMA?”

it ain’t over by a long shot, chris hayes, voter suppression and arizona

147 Republican members of Congress voted against seating Joe Biden’s electors.  They voted against accepting the votes of the people based on no evidence that there was a significant problem with the voting system.  These members didn’t win, but that’s how they voted.  There are not 147 Trumps.  These people are Republicans who do notContinue reading “it ain’t over by a long shot, chris hayes, voter suppression and arizona”

Why Free Market Capitalism Will Bury Us, Literally

Amid the absurdly trivial corporate media coverage of the Coronavirus crisis, are stories that slip by unnoticed.  One of them is another investigation, another investigation by a congressional subcommittee about whether “the U.S. government is paying too much for ventilators made by a Dutch company that received millions in tax dollars to develop an affordableContinue reading “Why Free Market Capitalism Will Bury Us, Literally”

Capitalism is the Crisis: The Repubicans Paved the Way for This

This afternoon, Jason Easley (3/19/20) at Politicsusa reported that Sen. Richard Burr, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was dumping $1.6 million in his own personal stock at the same time he was publicly reassuring the American people that their government had the coronavirus well in hand.

Chris Coons, D-Delaware. One of the Snakes in the Grass.

  In this podcast from the Majority Report, Sam Sedar talks to the Democrat challenging Chris Coons in Delaware.  Coons first came on my radar screen when he did a deal during the Kavanaugh hearings with Jeff Flake.  The deal was for an “investigation” by the FBI into the allegations of other women accusing KavanaughContinue reading “Chris Coons, D-Delaware.

Morning Impeachment Thoughts: Feckless Democrats, Moral Outrage, Raising Money

Morning Impeachment Thoughts I am obviously not a member of congress. Nor am I an expert on Congressional rules, but I think this impeachment debate is a terrible showing for the Democrats. The Republicans are giving impassioned speeches. Democrats are reading scripted statements.  I really don’t know what they are thinking. Every event in thisContinue reading “Morning Impeachment Thoughts: Feckless Democrats, Moral Outrage, Raising Money”

Proof of Collusion: Seth Abramson

All you have to do is read this book to see how Robert Mueller was either a Chickenshit (See book by Eisinger) or part of the project to cover up the Trump/Russia collusion.  Neither alternative is a good one.

Impeachment Battle Stations: Jonathan Turley is a Sell Out

I am at impeachment battle stations this morning, surrounded by cats.  One of them is already snoring.  I miss my little Burmese who died recently.  He had watched 21 years of CSPAN and news shows and was a kitty genius.  He appreciated and would have schooled the other cats on the historical significance of thisContinue reading “Impeachment Battle Stations: Jonathan Turley is a Sell Out”

Afternoon Thoughts: Impeachment, Narrow Focus, Jerry Falwall Jr., Bill Barr and Universities

Some thoughts at the end of the day: Matt Miller said on MSNBC tonight that the Democrats were trying to hurry along the impeachment investigation out of fairness. He maintains they don’t think it’s fair to drag it out longer because it’s an election year.    Is this really what they’re saying?  Can they beContinue reading “Afternoon Thoughts: Impeachment, Narrow Focus, Jerry Falwall Jr., Bill Barr and Universities”
