“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” ~ Joseph Goebbels
The Senate has taken some hard body shots this week because it has come out that as HORRIBLE the House Trumpcare bill was, the Senate’s is much, much worse. At least for everyone not in it to mine for huge tax cuts to their riches.
Well, I don’t think Trump will be able to hack it in battle. Coward. He’ll try to blame it on “obstructionist democrats” and just say, “fine, keep your Obamacare and enjoy the poorhouse.”
It will give him a foil to perpetually campaign about. “Obama and his secret socialist healthcare DISASTER that we have to fight, fight, fight, ‘cos he has a bunker in Washington, and he’s coming with NATO strike forces to TAKE YOUR GUNS!”
There won’t be a “repeal/replace” orgy. So, we need to focus on the next target for his destructive, flea’s attention span.
I just read that a Russian fighter jet buzzing a US spyplane in international airspace. While it’s kind of scary and all that, it’s really pretty awesome and totally braggadocios. Five feet? At supersonic speed? That’s totally waving your dick around like a lasso.
It was on this day in 1953 that the US executed Julius and Ethel Rosenberg for treason and espionage against the United States.
64 years ago, they fried in electrified chairs.
That was supposed to be a lesson to all those who would follow that there are consequences to one’s actions. Especially — ESPECIALLY — when those actions include colluding with an enemy of the state. Imagine what the punishment might look like if it included throwing US Presidential elections.
No, go ahead. It’s OK. Be like John Lennon. Imagine. There may be no facts in their inbred bubble, but Truth and Justice will always break through that kind of firewall.
Side note, Donald Trump was pretty much a toddler when the last US execution for espionage was carried out. Reminds me of a song of cycle:
Republicans — as an entity — project. Any time you hear a Republican complain about what a Democrat is doing? Any time you hear a Republican screaming about what a Democrat is? He (it’s more often than not a he) is projecting.
It’s always interesting to watch an individual do it. Psychology. What’s REALLY interesting is how an entire demographic of deplorable serial lying bigoted misogynists projects in unison. Organized projection. Engineered sociological weaponization of ignorance and self-hate.
There is nearly endless example of this sad truth. All you have to do is turn on the news and hear pretty much ANY Republican speak on any issue. Seriously. Try it. Everything they say is projection, anymore. Here is one that takes the goon trophy. A curiously devilish preacher named Jessie Lee’s a Peter’s Son kind of disgustingly speaks of Democrats worshipping “satan” at the Congressional baseball game, the other day as everyone prayed. We live in days where the least likely and least qualified to speak for a god of any sort are the ones screaming loudest about it.
Thankfully, the bodies of the seven missing sailors in the collision with the Japanese freighter were found in flooded compartments in the damaged destroyer. The families who were in shock with worry can now comfort each other and begin to heal.
Unfortunately, Trump hasn’t bothered to appoint a Secretary of the Navy, nor has he made sure we have an ambassador to Japan. Our destroyer may sink in Japanese waters and there is no navy leadership to deal with it. The sailors’ bodies sit in a Japanese dock and their families can’t look to an American ambassador to help them deal with that.
That’s bad enough, but to add insult to injury, Trump is too busy to deal with it. On a Father’s Day Vacation at Camp David with the poster wife and weird son-grandson, “Barron.” Of course, he can still find time to Tweet about how evil Cuba is and how impressive his election win was. And, his wife coudn’t give a nickel about the whole thing.
Late Breaking: Baby-hands tweeted and mentioned the missing sailors. He sent “prayers” though everyone knows he mocks the concept of there being a god outside of his impression of himself. He thanked Japan. For doing the job that he himself isn’t qualified to handle himself.
Dirtbag Russian double agent dirtbag. Our President, LOL. What a disgraceful day.
The biggest news right now isn’t the monumentally epic Russian Spy US government takeover story. Nope. What’s going on in the shadows is even more frightening.
The video below shows Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sounded the alarm speaking in Senate chambers today. Following is Chris Hayes explaining exactly what Mitch McConnel is doing, with the help of Andrew Slavitt, the recently “recent” administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Here is a Washington Post article about the shady dealings, and below it, the video.

Yeah, OK, so Ted Nugent just said after the Alexandria shooting yesterday where a Republican Congressperson was shot, that he would tone down his disgusting, hateful, riot-inducing fire in a theater speech now.
It doesn’t matter what he says or does at this point in his failed career or self-sabatoged waste of a life. No one is going to hear him sing fake songs of unity and go buy his angry, hateful crap. And, if you need a reminder as to all of the DISGUSTING, albeit blah, blah, “they say this shit every day” garbage that has left Nugent’s mouth and become FOX news Op Ed headline goodness, here’s a nice article detailing his best of:
Republicans are very hopeful that after decades of hate and lies and just endless foul behavior — now that they are almost assured to lose control of both the House and the US Senate, that if they just cry: “Can’t we all just get along?” that ppl will just forget that there is a filthy, rabid, hateful skunk running around the house stinking it up and that we’ll be too humane to just euthanize it with a baseball bat before it can kill everyone in their beds. Not this time, Nazis.
I heard this Nugent story on Facebook. An anti-Trump group. One thing I like about groups like that is that I don’t have to hold my tongue, LOL. Here is me not holding my tongue there.
Yeah, this is a video post. I was editing a video for a song from Stargate Universe just to give it a visual base to post it and decided “I should just use some pics and video clips of President Obama. ‘Cos we all miss the guy and it’ll do us good.
Well, I kind of did it so it outshines the song. So, this is about the video I made about President Obama. Enjoy the nice music that plays alongside it. It’s “All My Days” by Alexi Murdoch. From 2009. ‘Cos I’m old school like that, yo.

King Dumbass gathered his Reich around himself and had them all tongue-kiss his ring. The most unintentionally-hilarious thing to ever pretend to be not-banana-republic maybe ever.
And, seriously, how is Saturday Night Live going to survive if Democratic pols run their own skits so live, they’re almost real-time.
C’mon. Think of the children. Of the writers.
