Collins Is About to . . .

Yup WP.jpg

It kind of comes down to this.  Susan Collins is on the Senate Floor about to announce her vote on Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

EDIT 10-5

So, you know by now that Collins just read a defense of her choice to vote Yes on Kavanaugh.  After writing this, I did some D.C. to L.A. analysis with big little John and published this in Magnana Mouse:

Magnana Mouse  –>  https://magnanamouse.wordpress.com/2018/10/05/welcome-to-the-next-35-years/

Susan Collins just announced that she was a YES for Kavanaugh making it a 5-4 EXTREMIST RIGHT SUPREME COURT.  In an hour-long speech on the U.S. Senate floor, she tried to justify her decision to the women she just let down.  Every word came across as a plea for all of the women on the edge of their chairs NOT to stand up and walk away from her.

 

Didn’t work.  And, just like that, a yet-to-be-determined Democratic challenger to Collins in 2020 just received millions of dollars in grassroots campaign contributions.

 

The Hill  –>  https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/406812-crowdfunding-campaign-raises-13m-for-collins-to-vote-against-kavanaugh

 

Joe Manchin, bookend Democrat in West Virginia, was in favor of Kavanaugh.  He’s a socially conservative Southern Democrat.  Had Collins voted NO, he would not let women down by being the person who cast the deciding vote to put him on the Supreme Court.  But, Collins voted yes.  How he chose to vote would be neither here nor there.

 

It allowed him to vote in support of Kavanaugh.    The pro-Kavanaugh vote will likely ensure he keeps his seat  in the upcoming Midterm.  This confirmation of Kavanaugh will hurt the people of the United States for decades.

 

That said, the chances of the Democrats taking back the Senate in a month just spiked.

 

A whole lot of congressional investigations will begin on Nov. 7th.

 

Further, 2020 just got VERY ugly for the Trump-Putin-Repubican party.  Trump is toast  He’ll be impeached by the House.  And, should he somehow steal the election, as many believe he and Russia will try to do, there will likely be a super-majority of Democrats in Senate.  There is a good chance that:

 

1.   Both Kavanaugh an Clarence Thomas will be impeached.
2.   Ruth Bader Ginsburg will retire and be replaced.
3.   A Democratic President will replace all three with center-left judges.
4.  The days of Republican Gerrymandering and mass-suppression and mass incarceration in private prisons will come to an en.
5.  Congress will likely add two more judges to the Supreme Court and establish term limits on the position.  Likely 9-yr terms.

When the dust settles in 2021, there will be an 11-member court 8-3 Liberal.  There will be a Democratic super-majority in both the U.S. House and Senate.  On top of it all, there will be a DEMOCRAT in the Oval Office.  We will be DEEP in the process of undoing all of the damage that Trump and the Republican party have done to us.

 

We will be hard at work desperately trying to save the waning future of the planet.

 

We will be very busy reorganizing Healthcare, housing, and public education; fixing our crumbling infrastructure; saving all of the institutions that have been left bleeding on the floor after metaphorical gang rapes by the Trump-cult; and actually draining that swamp.

 

We WILL earn back our friendship an partnership with the world.

 

Today is the day we begin a REAL Revolution.

So, yeah, feeling good and looking up.  It’s going to suck for a minute but to be frank, this was the preferred outcome, long term.

Fight HARDER and let’s get this shit DONE!

Putin’s Favorite Honey Pot Sucked Drier

Hacked again. Your credit card is probably paying for some Russian kid’s porn chat sessions with his North Korean hottie. In all seriousness, start thinking about spreading your wings and flying to a steadier tree. Facebook is a minefield, and nothing about their network inspires a bit of confidence. There’s an article linked in here with a list of the top 8 alternatives. Give them a bit of thought. Consider creating profiles and testing a couple of them out.

Facebook is DEFINITELY not our friend. Not in any way.

The news shouldn’t surprise you: Facebook was hacked again. Your personal data may have AGAIN been stolen by Russian / Republican / Israeli hackers. If you’re one of the 50 million Americans who were added to their list of suckers. I mean, victims. Whatever.

NBC News –> https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/facebook-says-security-flaw-50-million-accounts-let-hackers-take-n914821

That it was leaked to NBC that it happened prompted Facebook to send this notice into our news feeds today:

I know it’s going to be hard to shed Facebook. It was a lot easier to give MySpace the axe. They got blingy; started being repped by kind of nasty ppl like Tila Tequila; and were bought out by Fox’s parent company, News Corp.

Facebook is a little different. Pretty much everyone on the planet has an account. It’s just about as ubiquitous as Ma Bell was back in the day. And, we got all of our parents on it. They’re…

I may be cancelling my cable. ‘Cos, really, I pretty much only need it for the news. And, Dizzy D’s music and the nooz-bits save the soul as they save the nickelz and dimez.

I once heard Whoopi Goldberg say the real news is always found in the “Crawlers” beneath the fluff.

So, Politics and Florence; FEMA money to bolster child separation policies. Manaforte gets the treatment, either way; Feinstein receives a letter her peers tell her to pass onto the FBI. Joe Scarborough says it’s a trick. (Honest;y, he’s so infuriating!)

But the show has many viewpoints, and I like hearing them. Tells so much about character and humanity. We go to war over things that matter little, and ignore the things that matter most.

I’m making two more clips – I’ve shortened them and they’ll continue to become bite-sized, I promise. So — one more edit to get them in here. Until then, whaddya think?

Here’s “Polls, Storms, Folly.”

And finally, “Shipwreck.”

Still, another book. 2018 is the year everyone took to their journals.

Currently: Hurricanes, Puerto Rico, FEMA, Kavanaugh, Secret Letters…

The Evolution of Protest To Israeli Apartheid

I wrote this for Magnana Mouse. It’s a cool story in its own right. I was attracted to it out the gate ‘cos the two kids in the cover for the story are from Kansas City. So much (besides glorious me) are emigrating from KC to change the world. Rock on.

KC against Netanyahu

There is a program that the Right Wing government of Benjamin Netanyahu uses to recruit “desired” foreign immigrants.

White Jews with American passports.

They fund a program called #Birthright that funds the visit of Jewish youth of social standing to be toured through Israel on guided propaganda tours that show all of the rosy aspects of Israel. Purposefully avoiding the evil stains that disease this beautiful country.

No traces or mentions of the Israeli occupation of Gaza.

No mention of the systematic theft of Palestinians’ lands, as they bulldoze their homes from under them.

What use would American Billionaire sponsor of the program, Sheldon Adelson have to teach these kids he’s actively brainwashing with realities like that?

Well, the Millennial generation is waking up to the EVIL hypocrisy of Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu and the Evangelical Christian wing of the Republican party who conspire to support Israeli Apartheid. To protest, they…

OCR-L-OBAMA-ENDORSE-16x9-1 Obama, in Anaheim to stump for Democrats, warns, ‘If we don’t step up, things can get worse’

This past week former President Barack Obama chose California to kick off his common sense tour.

Although he was there to introduce seven Democratic candidates, his real goal was speaking with the American people – all people.

He invited Independents and Republicans who have had enough to join him, and an army of friends intent on restoring morality, decency, unity and freedom where it has been sucked out as if The Penguin had taken Gotham City, and Batman was laid up at the mansion chugging beers.

At one point he asked everyone in general, “What happened?”  He reminded…

anonymous The New York Times Op Ed

The past three days have been stupendous – surreal – off the charts in current events information.  Like a cold torrent of rain it hits, and while you’re catching your breath, another torrent hits.

Reference Bob Woodward’s book which hasn’t been released to the public yet, except for the tidbits we’ve been getting from journalists with advance copies.

And no sooner did Woodward’s book hit — and I mean hit — The New York Times released a secret memo written by ‘Anonymous’ – a high level official inside the Trump White House.

“Leaking” continues by the minute, and Democrats grow a pair, releasing documents to the public after getting no response from Republican Senators as to why thousands of pages have been withheld from them and the people, and what these documents contain.

Facebook Gestapo: “Papers, Please.”

I wrote this three years ago. Long before Facebook had any issue with Russian Intelligence flooding the site with fake accounts.

Well at least before the public got wind of it and started having to act like they cared.

I do NOT like sharing my personal information in the cloud of social media. This is not a new thing. I’ve been like this since the mid-nineties. I knew not to open my book to father All-seeing from pretty much the big bang. A storied world wide virtual encyclopedia with hardly a fingerprint.

This is a little moment in history of A.I. reality, Facebook murdered a beautiful being.

EDIT 24 Sept 2018

Facebook sent my feed one of those “We love you, idiot” videos thanking me for my LONG patronage on their ad revenue machine.  They seemed to want to remind me of the happy day I joined them.  Registered to be a member of their inbred robot family.

Here’s a screen grab and my take on it:

Not the Day I Joined FB

I came to FB as Steven D’Mused.  I’m an author.  I write under a couple pseudonyms.  Pen names.  I don’t write fairy tales and I came up somewhat more than as an author.  Even though I write fiction, like they say, 95% of fiction is autobiographical.  Sources would be mined, and I don’t roll with that.  I don’t need an ego-hummer every time I am  published.  Agents and managers need to know.  As long as I get paid, I’m a happy literary grasshoppa.

To call me FURIOUS that Facebook deleted my profile (that was created in 2005 — the last year that it was still called “the Facebook,” and I had to “negotiate” admission to the university database.

For entertainment radio promotions purposes.

He Was Dmused WPI was a Facebook user for over a decade before Russians and Right Wing think tanks were using it to undermine our country.  And, they abused ME to atone for their irresponsibility and soul-less corporate mismanagement of the community that Zuckerberg catalyzed.

I tried for about 5 months to get my 10 year-old page back, but gave up when FB refused to even speak to me.  I was off this damned site for two years before stooping to creating a new one.   It was three years ago on my mum’s b-day.  Couldn’t leave her on the site to fend the wolves on her own.

I am beta-testing a new social media format that may be the elusive replacement to Facebook (and Twitter).  It’s called Mastodon, and it doesn’t do all of the corporatized evil BS that Facabook and Twitter does.  I recommend you too give it a spin and start up your account

So, I’m off Facebook. The addiction cut quick.

Facebook Sucks Bird Flip Off - DMusedWhy on earth would you do that?

Well, it wasn’t my choice. I needed a nudge in the right direction. But, I digress.

Facebook in its new corporate IPO crusade to the bottom in a puddle of their own greed-inspired drool has taken issue with peoples’ nomenclature.

Their names.

Back when us ad-bate demographic muppets signed up to use their site, we weren’t required to show papers. That’s why there were people wearing Christopher Walken’s name and a cowbell pic for fun.  We all understand that Walken’s brand need be protected, but when Facebook has a problem with Caitlyn Jenner not being “Ol’ Bruce,” then they’re pushing privacy boundaries that aren’t theirs to breach.

This isn’t a false analogy.  Transgendered people have a very difficult time of things without being harrassed by Facebook to wear their man-pants to the ball.  They even…

Become Civilized, You Ask? We Became Something, Alright [VID]

Second Condor Clip of my Saturday. My last, I promise. I could have chopped it into 30 clips, but, just watch it, dude, and quit nippin’ at my heels, LOL. This clip is about the question: “If you have to behave like an animal to achieve your civilization, are you even civilized?”

Magnana Mouse

The Audience Network’s Condor is a really good remake of the 1975 spy thriller 3 Days of the Condor with Robert Redford.   This is a clip from this season’s 5th episode, “From Innocence.”  A spy talks to another spy about the fatally-flawed system we have evolved into.

Americans Value LIFE [VID]

It’s Saturday. Caught the latest Condor. It’s spy drama. Perfect for Magnana Mouse, though I’m not aware of the crossover from politically-astute and the lovers of political fiction.

Who am I kidding? Of course they’re into it.

Magnana Mouse

A reflective thought on just where the world (specifically, America, and very specifically, the vapid Republican Reich’s America).

We don’t care about LIVES. Just the unborn collection of cells that can someday become a cog in the corporate machine. A means to a corporation’s bottom line, someday. Maybe a good dumb infantryman who is desperate enough to be sent to kill and die for more corporate bottom line.

Yeah, we’re pretty screwed.

Watch Condor on the Audience Network. AT&T? Direct TV? I think they’re all the same thing. It’s the home of Kingdom and has 26 million subscribers. Worth it, for sure.

This is all a Private Prison-for-Profit thing?

Another I wrote for Magnana Mouse. This Betsy Devos lady is like a brain-damaged Cruella Deville. Literally profiting from holding children hostage.

What does a Secretary of Education do again?  Do they set  up concentration camps to profit personally on the internment of asylum seeker?  Well, this one does.  Betsy DeVoss owns a company called Bethany Christian Service.

She charges YOU $700 per day — That’s a rent of $21,700 a month — to house her hostage children.  What is the Trump Reich paying YOU to room and board?  Yeah, they pay you NOTHING.

This is full-fledged Hitler.  It can’t be true.  FAKE NEWS, FAKE NEWS!  We should SNOPES this bizniz, NOW!
