Jimmy vs. the Nazis

Kimmel vs the Nazis WP

A while back, Jimmy Kimmel had a Senator Bill Cassidy on his show.  Bill PROMISED Jimmy that he would write a bill that would make sure that Jimmy’s son would remain able to have health insurance.  See, Jimmy’s newborn was born with a heart defect and is only able to live because the Affordable Care Act — Obamacare — makes sure those with preexisting medical conditions are able to be insured.

Well, it turns out that Cassidy is a Republican and *surprise* Republicans are half-witted white supremacist LIARS.  Cassidy is the Cassidy in the Graham-Cassidy Republican Healthcare poison pill.

Surprise, it wipes out coverage for people with preexisting conditions.

Jimmy had to endure some anti-science cretins who came out against *him* for calling Cassidy out for lying right to his face on national TV.

Of course, first came Cassidy himself.  Then Lindsey Graham.  Then Fox talking slime, Brian Kilmeade and was followed by some condescending tripe out of Chris Christie’s fat mouth (even though he, too, was even against this sick bill.

So, Jimmy sat down with his son who is alive because of Obamacare, and wrote a nice monologue response to Cassidy and Lindsey Graham.

As you’ll see in Jimmy Kimmel’s video from his show last night, below, Kimmel basically roasted to charcoal all involved in this sick, bigoted mess of a tax giveaway to the super-rich under the guise of “healthcare,” and also noted that:

  1. The Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill would gut $243 BILLION from federal healthcare assistance.
  2. States would be able to price you out of your of coverage under the Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill if you dare have a preexisting condition.
    – This means that if you have a preexisting condition like MS, a heart defect, cancer
    in remission, diabetes, etc., that you may be granted healthcare, but it would be
    allowed to be so expensive as to price you out and then not even cover your
    preexisting condition anyway.
  3. Federal funding disappears completely after 2026 under the Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill.
  4. The Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill would no longer make insurance companies pay for essential care like maternity care; cancer screenings; or pediatric visits.
  5. The American Medical Association (AMA); the Muscular Dystrophy Association; the the National Multiple Sclerosis Society; Blue Cross / Blue Shield; the ALS Association; America’s Health Insurance Plans; the Cistic fibrosis foundation; the American Medical Association (AMA); the American Hospital Association; the Association of American Retired Persons (AARP);  the National Council for Behavioral Health (represents more than 2,000 mental health and addiction treatment groups); the American Academy of Pediatrics;  the American Cancer Society; the Cancer Action Network; the American Diabetes Association; the American Heart Association; the American Lung Association; the Arthritis Foundation; the National Health Council; and the March of Dimes all spit on this vile bill.

Kimmel shows he very much gets it.  It’s Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, along with Trump and all of the rest of the Deplorable anti-science, pro-rich daddy tax break Senators who actually back it who don’t.

Even with as much of a BAD joke as this bill is and with as ZERO support as it has, don’t assume it is going to crash and burn.  It is still up to YOU to activate and make it DIE.  Until we depose this criminally illegitimate poseur of a President and right the good ship America, we are going to have to FIGHT for every breath.  Nazis never let up.  These Nazis have an ex-KGB spy for their leader.

FIGHT!

Flood the lines of these “swing voters” with phone calls and tell them mitts off ACA.

Democratic Governors Pick Up Where Trump Tripped and Dropped the Ball

Governors Take Control WP

California governor Jerry Brown has had to take the reins to right California’s ecological wagon as Trump spooked the horses and left it careening toward a mountain bend.  Old West movie stylz.  In a nut-shot to Trump, Brown has announced plans to have California host a Global Climate Summit this summer.  Not to mention the fact that he has already announced that California — the 5th largest economy in the world — will abide by, and exceed the goals set by the 2016 Paris Climate Accord.

Los Angeles Times –>  http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-sac-jerry-brown-climate-summit-20170706-story.html

Governors Take Control 2 WP

Donald Trump has completely dropped the ball for America where US climate maintenance is concerned.

He’s hired a director of the Environmental Protection Agency who vowed years before to destroy the agency, and has sued it to do just that.

“For too long, the Environmental Protection Agency has spent taxpayer dollars on an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that has destroyed millions of jobs, while also undermining our incredible farmers and many other businesses and industries at every turn.

USA Today –> https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/2016/12/07/donald-trump-scott-pruitt-environmental-protection-agency/95104512/

Now, as head of the agency, he it taking counsel from Oil Industry executives and has slashed regulations that protect Americans from their air and water poisoned by corporations.

Rolling Stone –> http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/features/scott-pruitt-is-gutting-the-epa-serving-fossil-fuel-industry-w494156

Below, a TV interview Brown gave to a hostile reporter.  He handled himself with, dare I say, Presidential demeanor?  And, no, I don’t think Jerry will or WOULD run for President in 2020.  The right will just have to continue looking for the Donkey to pin the target on for now.  Jerry will retire to legend and mountains of gratitude from his constituents when his next term runs out.

Since our Executive and Legislative branches of government have completely let us down, it is up to Democratic Governors of the states with more than 4 million more voters than the Right Wing Red State Confederacy to save all out butts.

Alex Jones Has a Sad, Flips on Trump, Republicans

Alex Jones is Sad WP

You know things are going South for Trump and the Republican Party when Alex Jones spends an entire webisode of his InfoWars show railing on the Ruling Bossman White Supremacist set. He was even — next to Bannon — perhaps Trump’s most ardent supporter in media (my how FOX has fallen). But, Jones even dumps a truckload of horse crap on Trump’s shine.

What to do? Should all Republicans jump ship and sail into the sunset with David Duke? It’s such a confusing time.

Trump Has a New Craigslist Black Friend

Remember how Trump put out a cattle call yesterday to get him some good black for background at his big, breaking, 2020 campaign inauguration crazy-rally?

CRAIGSLIST BLACKS AD WP

 

Well, Craigslist came through again.  It looks like the race war is over.

Trump has averted disaster yet again.  A black man was found.  Chosen from a pool of millions.  Ben Carson is said to have been brought in to screen the hoard.  And, the perfect one was chosen.  He should have read the fine print.  Unfortunately, the man is now only “free” in the rebel “blue” states, so it looks like Halloween is actually going to be scary this year.

Black Friend WP

As far as the rally itself, not a thing new was said.  Just salacious BS and endless whining about the press to discredit them for when they report on the inevitable arrest and prosecution of this pathetic, obese, compulsive lying Russian useful idiot agent steaming pile of rancid dog crap on my shoe.

One thing of note:  He has devolved to lying about lying.  He is now telling lies about lies, and risks running full circle back around to the truth.  At which point Stephen Bannon will have to kill him.  As is now, only Sheriff Joe might kill him for going back on his promise to pardon his crimes.

 

Wrong Address

TRUMP PRETENDER ADDRESS

Trump did something really gross.  He gave an address and called it a “Presidential” Address.  We’re just going to have to agree to disagree.  These are addresses.  Marginally.  But, to call them “Presidential,” may be technically correct.  But, it is just demeaning to all of us for anything associated with this disgusting excuse for a human being — let alone a man.

He has not gotten through a single sentence in two years without lying.  There is NO WAY that the world can put a bit of trust or faith in ANYTHING this useful Russian idiot says.

He dodged the draft and has zero honor in his blackened, dried out soul.  He has no record of public service of ANY kind, let alone serving with our military.  Ordering a US soldier to  put his / her life in jeopardy at his order is insulting.

And, the military — under his command — can’t swerve to avoid a mountain — his warships running into giant oil tankers and seal teams walking into live fire at his direction.  And, he wants to command us into a war?

On top of all that, this RICO-drunk THIEF intends on privatizing the military to enrich one of his family, and has just announced intentions to mine the country of its wealth to pay for our warring.

This dirtbag needs to be stopped before he is eligible to be charged with WAR CRIMES.  That’s where all of this is headed, you realize, don’t you?

I Missed History Again

Saddam Statue Falls Felicia WP

I feel HORRIBLE.

I knew it was silly of me that day 14 and a half years ago as I was watching the festivities on the teevee to be longing like a lonely puppy at an echo.  Longing for my being able to be in Iraq smelling the dust and smoke in the air as that huge Saddam statue finally came down.  As if there was even a parallel universe somewhere where that would have been conceivable, right?  But, I *wanted* to have been there like I would have gone out and made sure I had the baseball card, LOL. 

After seeing what began happening today with all the calls for Confederate statues to fall  like domino-shame across the swath of former Confederate Southern states, I feel even worse than Baghdad slipping by. 

NYT –>  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/14/us/confederate-statue-kentucky.html

It’s something of moral and historic significance happening right here in MY COUNTRY.  And here I am all comfy as far away from it here as could be. Missing it.

Again.

Fer effin’ shame.

An Ideal, Not a Hero. Not just Yet.

Made America Suck Again WP

The deplorably bigoted, willfully-ignorant self-haters of the now nervous Tea Party still cling to a dark hope.  They still cling to the white supremacist ideal where “the browns” all serve them as the South rises again.  Where life SUCKS for everyone not embarrassingly wealthy.

These tragic fools made a wish upon a star and got their baby-handed idiot king.  They got their Trump.

The resistance is fighting tooth and nail to remove the cancer and heal what the idiot-King has sickened.  People are screaming for a hero-figure to be like Godzilla beating down Mothra in a duel to the glorious end,  But, as exciting and worthy as this path seems, it is that good intention that lines the road to Hell.  There is another way, and it doesn’t call for finding a super-candidate to stand up to the serial-lying; compulsive pussy-grabbing,’ half-witted; cowardly man-toddler.

It involves finding the heroes around you and uniting behind a single, overarching ideal.  Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer teamed with the Democratic party  to organize a group of artists to forward an idea of hope and determination.  The intent is to help unite the resistance to take back the hope and expectation that was stolen from all of us.

Here are the top-two posters, courtesy Chuck.

Better Deal 1 WP

and,

Better Deal 2 WP

America was NOT made “great again.  She was molested, mocked, and left naked in front of a city bus come morning. The Make America Great Again logo is a cruel joke, now.  A better deal is what we all need.  It’s concise and easy to relate to and recall.

What We All Need:  A Better Deal.  The working man and woman across the board has been either screwed or lined up along an alley wal to be screwed.  Families all across the spectrum and from sea to shining sea are suffering from both Trump’s crazed cartoon leadership and the Republican Congress’ fringe, anti-American agenda.  We need a better deal just to heal from years of their legislated regressive greed, self-hate, and lonely bitterness.

They say that most politics are local.  Whoever *they* are, they aren’t just spitting into the wind.

All Politics is Local WP

in 2018, we are going to need to develop the legend not of the future King, but of the heroes around us, representing us against the Reich. Our State, Gubernatorial, Congressional, and Senatorial leaders will guide us to a representative system that actually represents all of us.

There are so many Democratic-aligned heroic figures across the country holding the flag for the resistance to Trump and the Republican party he leads who deserve your sweat tears, and laughter as you volunteer to help them help you to an intimidating body.  You are going to find it so satisfying and life-affirming that you’re not going to have time or a care in the world for national politics the next time it rears its proud head.

By the time it does, we will have gathered around us those who would deliver bills worthy of our pride in our President signing into Law.

We will draw to us a legislative body that admonishes the toxic ideology of the fringe right. 

A body politic that admonishes state-sponsored christo-sharia occultism.  

A body politic that admonishes the Heritage Foundation eat-the-poor neocon chickenhawk drum beating.

When we flip the house and maybe, like 2006, the Senate with it, we can coalesce around a national leader in earnest. It’s been so long since we had that, I doubt most even remember what it was like.

Until then, the only thing any of us need to worry about is taking back or defending our states!!

Not a Senator

Fear GOP Walking Dead WP

I like the idea of a ranked soldier keeping his / her rank after un-deployment and rest.

I like calling him President Obama.  He’ll always be President.

But, do I really?  Only kind of.  Rachel Maddow had a guest on today.  She called him “Senator” Gordon Humphrey.  I thought that out of a hundred Senators, I’d still be smart like a 98% A-student if there were just 2 I didn’t remember.  But, really, eff that.  I know every dang one, at least by name.

Well, turns out I’m not “There are 2 Senators I don’t know” dumb.  Gordon WAS a senator.  A long time ago.  Like pushing 30 years ago was Senator. Oddly, this gets me to the actual reason I wrote this story: the Zombie of a long-retired Republican senator is haunting us with a press junket.  And, weirder, Rachel Maddow had him on her show.

Gordon Humphrey Fornicate Billboard WP

Pardon my taking the piss out of yer man, but aside from my flickin’ his old nuts, that’s an actual poster he uses.  For what, not entirely sure.  He’s too old to run for any office.  Trump is only 71, and I don’t think ANYONE doubts the dumb in risking being a peasant under a mad king.  A Dementia-hollowed ASSHOLE.  Like Trump.  This guy is just too gravity-whittled for service, anymore.

What I’m thinking is that his agent sees a longing for the days before the Tea Party.  Before the Freedom Caucus made a buy-in Swamp army of them.  With the INSANE militancy of the Presidency, a longing for days even before Neoconservatism. This guy Humphrey represents just that.

He could never be held up as an ideological echo of a hero any lost culture pines to re-live.  The people have shown themselves for who they are to the core, and, you can’t un-shoot yourself in your idiot foot.  Only the sage monks of electoral politics and the old generals of our reeling media structure keep the memory alive at all.  NBC wants to conspire in stopping the Republican party from bleeding out.

Too late for miracles, old chap.

And, I’m not all about helping save the Republican corpse.  Let it rot.

Obama vs. Trump BSA Jamboree Speeches

Obama BSA WP

Donald Trump spoke in the direction of 40,000 children in the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree crowd the other day.  He used drunken dive bar language and spoke without honor as their honorary Scout President.  Did I mention that he wasn’t only a US Military draft dodger, but he wasn’t even a scout?

Yeah.  Real role model.  It was shameful.

Well, President Obama wasn’t able to attend either of the two Jamborees that gathered while he was  our President and Commander in Chief.  But, he was able to send a video address to the kids.  The respective Presidents’ speeches were far cries from one another and sum up the difference between the two Presidents.

Occupy Democrats edited the video, and big ups to them for doing so:
