Gotham City Digest, 8/11/18

     Making America Great Again, one impeachment and conviction at a time.

     I often see moderates telling us the vitriol is great on both sides and that the left needs to "understand" the far right. Right wingers are pure scum and I do not need to "understand" them. I already do. I've been blogging about them for going on 14 years. The far left doesn't pull thuggery like this as they did in London.

     Jailbird Rep. Chris Collins really is a cunt. Here's a criminal who was arrested by the FBI for insider trading and even in the act of announcing he was suspending his re-election campaign, it's all about the evil liberal Democrats. I hope they toss him in federal prison and throw away the cell.

     As if I or any of us need another reason to loathe Amazon and Jeff fucking Bezos with a screaming passion. Authors are getting their books pulled and their accounts terminated without reason, essentially destroying their writing careers. All they've gotten is a generic form letter telling them they've violated one rule or another and, because the federal fucking government refuses to regulate anything anymore, Amazon gets to write into the contract they can't be sued by their authors and have to go to (ha ha) arbitration. We authors need to rise up against these monolithic assholes and lobby Congress for more oversight of Amazon.

     Do no harm, eh, Google? I guess that didn't work out so well.

     Oh, I'm gonna laugh my ass off listening to Kanye try to spin this.

     If Andrew Miller is willing to risk being arrested and thrown in jail for contempt, can you imagine what he's desperately hiding?

     If Jeff Sessions was the Lucky Charms leprechaun, the hearts and clovers would be replaced with pink triangles and burning crosses.

     Meanwhile, as Jeff Sessions put himself in contempt of a court order trying to illegally deport a mother and child, this happened the day before yesterday.

     My old buddy Charles Pierce nails it again with this piece about fascist conspiracy theorist Kris Kobach.

     To paraphrase The Simpsons, Laura Ingraham: Not racist but #1 with racists.

     I'm still at a loss to understand what Trump and Pence consider "a new generation of threats" and why space is "the next battlefield." Did ISIS commandeer a few captured spaceships from Area 51 that we didn't know about?

     I think we've taken this, ":Any child can grow up to be president of the United States" a bit too far. Especially if they don't grow up before getting elected. And thanks to this asshole who finally discovered he can use tariffs as a club to beat up other nations who don't sufficiently stroke his bloated ego, Trump's just about destroyed Turkey's economy and sending it into free fall.

     Not only is ICE a neo fascist organization that loves to abuse its authority, they're also, as fascists and bullies tend to be, craven liars.

     So, to recap... Electoral conspiracy theorist and Trump knob gnosher Kris Kobach ran against his own Governor in the Kansas GOP gubernatorial primary. The Secretary of State's office was found to have cheated Governor Colyer of 100 votes, crediting him with just 422 votes when he got 522, shrinking Kobach's lead to 91.
      The Secretary of State for Kansas is... Kris Kobach.
      Fancy THAT.

     As far as Leni Riefenstahl Laura Ingraham goes, she probably looks upon her immigrant adopted children as part of Kipling's white man's (or woman's) burden. As far as her ex boyfriend Douche D'Souza goes, he's "one of the good ones" as they like to call their token black Republicans. Bobby Jindal's another, although he secretly wishes he was white, if his official gubernatorial portrait is to be believed.

     A Japanese medical school was just bagged for putting a thumb on the scale in favor of men and against women.

     So, they dodged paying over a million dollars in grazing fees, set fire to federal land, suggested using women as human shields and sighted down on federal law enforcement officers. So, naturally, they're the victims, says their racist lawyer Larry Klayman.

     California inmates are risking their lives battling the wildfires in the state for $1 an hour and even after they get released, they won't be allowed to be firefighters because their felon status will prevent them from signing up for the paramedic classes they'd need. By the way, Kamala Harris wanted this. How this is supposed to help them readjust to society and make something of themselves is beyond me.

     I'm sure Trump will get around to mentioning this on his Twitter feed any day now.

     This is the full clip of the Rachel Maddow Show from August 8th exposing Devin Nunes for the lying piece of shit he truly is. It's the secret tape that was made on July 30th of Devin Nunes exposing what the GOP's real agenda is.

     Why the fuck are our "allies" the Saudis targeting school buses filled with children and why are we selling them the means to do this?

     Even 14 years after the debacle of the 2004 election, Ohio still doesn't do democracy well, does it?

     The VA's being secretly run by three Mar-a-Lago buddies of Trump and one of them makes superhero movies. And finally...

Unfair to compare Riefenstahl to Ingraham.

One actually made some decent propaganda films.

The other has made a spectacle of herself in recent months.
