Score One for Chuck Todd

Todd Comey TrumpAnyone who knows me knows I am no fan of Chuck Todd. But, I have to give it to him today. On his daily Meet the Press on MSNBC, some random guest said about the Comey firing: “I know you’re going to have a huge segment on this on your Sunday show . . .”

Chuck Todd immediately snapped back: “Well, we still have 17 news cycles to get through, so . . .”

Comedy gold.

Russia’s Coup d’état Rears Head Again

Hacked Machines WP

Published in Magnana Mouse.

Must give a preemptive hat tip to Bill Palmer – Editor in chief and feature writer for the Daily News Bin –> http://www.dailynewsbin.com.   Palmer has diligently been reporting on the physical hack of voting systems in swing states that upset the presidential election in Donald Trump’s favor.  The media establishment was focusing on simple ties between Trump cabinet members and various Russians while Bill Palmer was reporting on major irregularities in the physical voting machinery.

It was brushed off and ignored by major networks until just now as a Freedom of Information Act request verified and bolstered Palmer’s thesis.

I won’t go into the details here, because Palmer has already done it in a well-organized and impeccably-sourced article:

Palmer Report –> http://www.palmerreport.com/opinion/michigan-donald-trump-betsy-devos-russia/2624/

A spoiler-tease, though, it turns out that effing Betsy DeVos-linked RUSSIAN voting machines threw the election in Michigan, just for starters.  Dig in, friends.

And, now, as you feel the pressure as you hold on to your faith and your Peter Pan advice and the piper feels like he’s comin’ callin, here’s a great song to bask in as it heats up. From, the Nylon Curtain.

Fake Egg or Imaginary Chicken?

FAKENEWS WP

We’ve all heard of “Fake News.”  We associate it with the Russian Intelligence coup of our government.

Don’t give the bread-line Russian vodka-drunkski’s all that much credit for the how-to.  They are just using OUR psycho-tech.  We have been doing this since the 90’s.  It took a little slip during the Bush cleanup in 2004 that prompted this 2005 story about it (New York Times).    Oops.  Wasn’t supposed to be known about then either.

Our foreign intelligence was probably using it, themselves, but this was a DOMESTIC play from the ashes of the end of the Cold War.   Where some commie child-army dumbass hackers took it is only notable because we were dumb enough to slip in a puddle of our own pee dribbling down our leg and fall for it.  Not all that surprising, though, as we all know how well any establishment deals with fresh ideas straight out the oven.

One step further, though, is how we still use it domestically.  MSNBC conspires with *someone* to pimp out a meme with this video:

It’s just a commercial, but it’s not just anything.  The reporter isn’t a reporter.  She and “Milton” there are reading from a script.  It’s propaganda.

Good propaganda, I suppose.  Showing that black men shouldn’t be feared because they’re black men.  Um, it shows that blacks, targeted unequally and arguably, very unfairly don’t hold grudges?  That black men are very pro-police state and pro military.  If I were running a PR campaign to try sneaking the pussy caps off protesters, this would certainly have been a concept I would have sponsored.

If those are actual officers of the law in the background, it really begs the question of who produced this and got MSNBC to air it.

Just keep your eyes open and don’t assume anything.

A New Fraudulent Fraudening

There was never “Voter Fraud.”  That was a bigoted, segregationist, right-wing Republican attempt to justify their modern vote suppression technique intended to devastate the minority vote.  Again.  The side-car to their hog’s fiery crash through the guard rails of the Voting Rights Act.

But, FOX News claimed there was, over, and over, until poorly-educated and ill-informed dupes believed there was en masse.  As a MOB, they screamed for mass voter purges and draconian voter ID laws meant to suppress the votes of poor, minority, and elderly voters.

The Right-wing faux-conservative Republican establishment has learned from their dark successes and has found a new fraud to con you fraudulently into believing.  There are TRILLIONS of fake people collecting the life-saving monies that are given out to feed the poor.

Food Stamps.  According to FOX News, over $70 Million is stolen by evil fake black Muslim people in an attempt to starve the Baby Jesus.   Yes, the claims are that ridiculous.  But, more ridiculous is the reality that after all of the hullabaloo about “FAKE NEWS” that conned half of a nation into believing endless nonsense that made them think it wise — or even sane — to elect a Fascist idiot dictator as our President.

Some people are beyond redemption.  P.T. Barnum was partially right.  A sucker is born, alright.  But at a rate MUCH faster than every minute.  Deplorables have metasticized.  We’re DEFINITELY going to need a bigger basket.
