Shiny Object Syndrome

Shiny Object Still WPThe things our Con Artist-In-Chief tweets are meant to do one thing and that thing only.

Well, two things.  The obvious:  To rile up some really base, deplorable Tea-party, or Freedom Caucus fanboy dirtbags that Trump calls his base.

Secondly, and most importantly, Trump does it so the media can guide you around like a leashed doggie by it and no one pays any attention to the vile, oftentimes criminal, actions by which he is guiding our country into the crapper with.

This video is from this morning after a pretty disappointing (as per usual) tweet fit he vomited on Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of Morning Joe.  Don’t follow his lead.  Ignore the vile obvious and focus instead on the nuts and bolts of the destructive policy BS he deals in.

Don’t be the predictable rube.

Dead to Me

Trump Cubs WP.jpgI was so happy for the Chicago Cubs won the Major League Baseball World Series.  The team with the worst luck in Baseball; cursed to an endless drought on their road to a return FINALLY did it.

Chicago isn’t my team (I have a team), but, I still pull for them almost any time I see them playing.

Until now.  They blew it.  They visited the White House when they won.  As winners of the series do every year.  President Obama hosted them.   It was really special.  But, they for some reason accepted an invitation to go again.

So they could kiss Trump’s ring, or something.

Well, at least they got some shady memories.  What it did to them was slap another curse on them.  The kind of curse that makes you wait another hundred years to win the World Series again.  I mean, they could have gained a game on the tight race for 1st place.  But, nope.  Fate had other plans.  Their league leader lost, providing them an opportunity.

But, the cubs lost too.  Ironically, perhaps, to the Washington Nationals.

Cubs LOSS

Just for craps and grins, a little news from the joke of a ceremony:

One of the players, outfielder Albert Almora Jr.

it was reported by careful citizen media watchers who combed through the footage, that player Albert Almora Jr. was subtly flipping baby-hands the bird.  Of course, Cubs sponsors have arranged for Albert to deny he was doing any such thing.  But, we know.

Barack and Good Times, Babies

Obama kissing baby WPFB

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.

Jim Carrey Begins Avalanche of Griffin Defenders

Published in Magnana Mouse

You’ve heard of the Kathy Griffin Photo and video shoot depicting the metaphorical beheading of Donald Trump for High Treason against the United States of America.  You’ve seen the gory photos of it.

Probably been shocked by it.

Griffin Trump Head

Yawn.  It’s Halloween time.

You’ve undoubtedly heard how shocked the Right Wing is at the horror of it.  How no one in the history of history has EVER gone so far as this.  How young Barron has a sad.  He thought that his bumbling halfwitted compulsive liar and serial sex offender father is dead.

Sure, he did.

You’ve heard how Kathy has lost work because of the outrage.

Variety –>  http://variety.com/2017/biz/news/kathy-griffin-press-conference-donald-trump-severed-head-1202451771/

Well, the storm is subsiding.  After some of her colleagues had feigned disgust at her protest, like washed up former star Dan Aykroyd, the tide is turning.  Now, her A-list friends are coming out in support of her 1st Amendment rights to protest this illegitimate man’s horrendously treasonous existence as our President and the shame it’s brought all of us..

If you’ve followed the career of Ms. Griffin, you’ve undoubtedly known about her patriotic support of the US military soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq and her appreciation and honors received from Veterans groups for her service.

People know who Kathy Griffin is.  The kind of patriot she is and how brave she is standing up to this Tyrant and his disgusting, devastating behavior that is destroying our Democratic Republic and even threatening Western civilization’s continued dominance, and even the survival of life on Earth.  Slowly, but surely as the rising sun, people are coming out in support of Ms. Griffin.

Jim Carrey started the avalanche of support, and was shortly followed by Al Franken, Alec Baldwin, Jamie Foxx, Mike Lawrence, Larry King, Al Franken, and Rosie O’Donnell.  And, that’s just the beginning.  A lot of her friends are hesitant, because of the rabid nature of Trump’s supporters and the fact that they have proven so apt to arm themselves and use violence to make their grunting points.

But, they are starting to come out in support of her like an avalanche. The story below has some great quotes from her braver colleagues:

The video below includes footage of Jim Carrey defending Kathy at the red carpet of his new film’s premiere, as well as footage of her on Hardball, discussing Trump’s illegitimacy and her service to country as a performer at home and in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Rotting Teeth TX Rep Blake Farenthold Grunts Like a Pig

Toothy Douch WP

Seriously, though, what is up with Blake Farenthold’s (Jezebel) teeth?  After listening to him grunt like a pig in support of Trump’s bigotry-saturated Russia support, I can understand his support in Texas.

But, his pig-slop stained, rotting teeth I just don’t get.  I get how his teeth are rotting, because he’s a disgusting pig and preaches against dental science.  But, his mouth is disgusting.  Who lets this fat bag of crap kiss their baby and how the HELL did he get elected to lead ANYONE?

Eww.  C’mon, Texas, it’s got to be possible to do better than this.  Chrissake.

 

Fake Egg or Imaginary Chicken?

FAKENEWS WP

Cross-posted in Magnana Mouse.

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.

In Memoriam

mlk-day-poster-wp

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  With a PROUD white supremacist and moral leader of the Ku Klux Klan (NPR), this is a time to reflect.  A time to reflect on all that we have fought for to have gotten to the point we achieved.  And, a time to reflect what we will and already have lost to Trump and the nativist Republican Congress.

We allowed Vladimir Putin to insert an asset at the President of the United States and leader of the “free” world.

We have a lot to reflect on right now.

You’re always with us, Dr. King.  Please be with us now.  Thanks.

The video below is the FULL “I Have a Dream” speech  with a forward clip from the “Lemmons” episode of Black-ish where young Andre Jr. reads a tribute Dream  to his classmates.

Corporatist Voter View of a Fascist Con from Black-ish

blackish-power-wp

The last episode of Black-ish, “Lemmons,” dealt with the maddening realization that we just elected a bona-fide Fascist to be our very own dictator and what that is going to mean to ALL of us.

It comes at the debacle from the perspective that

  1. We need to come together as Americans to survive the worst that history throws at us, And,
  2. Don’t worry, the youth who weren’t old enough to vote this time will pick up where we left off and everything’s gonna be alright.

Because we have a dream.

The episode investigates the mysterious points of view of the low-informed multitude of marks who led Trump to the Oval Office on their idiot shoulders.  You have to see the entire episode, but here’s a clip of the corporatist, apologist point of view.

It’s Been Foretold

trackdown-wpRemember the 50’s spaghetti western, Trackdown?   Betcha don’t recall the episode about the con-man named . . . TRUMP.  No kidding.  He’s the only one with the mystical power and knowledge to prevent the fiery end-of-days scenario impending.

And, the greasy snakeoil fraud purveyor knows the answer.

You’re not going to believe it.  He’s going to show them how to build a wall to save them from Armageddon.

His name is Trump.  He’s a fraud-monster snake oil salesman.  He’s promising naive “sheeple” yokels he’ll help them build a wall.  And, he’ll sue you if you get lippy.  Ladies and gentlemen, we have a Hollywood Nostradamus that predicted orange Hitler almost 70 years ago.

If only we had been listening.  Tune in for the dumpster fire episode:
