Gotham City Digest: May Day! edition

(In which we promise to never shit on the seat of British power.)

     After three fucked up attempts to jam Brexit down the throats of UK residents like Harry Reems with Linda Lovelace, Theresa May finally called it quits this morning. She won't be missed by either Labour or the Tories.

     Failed movie mogul and foreclosure king Mnuchin would be perfectly at home in MiniTru.

     Donald Trump is a seven year-old's idea of what a president should sound like.

     Come on, you don't think Betsy DeVos got that job on her looks, did you?

     More compassionate conservatism inaction. Rep. Chip Roy. If you live in Texas, remember that name on election day.

     Jerry Nadler was rushed to the hospital today after fainting. Let's hope for a speedy recovery.

     How is Mitch McConnell a traitor? Let us count the ways...

     Good for New Mexico. Screw the Electoral College.

     Trump's presser yesterday was really a masterpiece of insanity. Read his full answer to the question of treason carrying with it the death penalty.

     Even an aid package costing more than an aircraft carrier is just a Bandaid, a pitiful bribe that barely addresses the devastation that Trump is causing in the heartland.

     Oh, THIS is auspicious. Trump is sharing state secrets with Barr so he can investigate the investigators.

     For years, Fox's official Uncle Tom Charles Payne has been a pain in the ass of the body politic.

     Professor Anita Hill has some potent advice for Democrats for the 2020 elections. I say we should listen to her. Closely.

     It's good to have friends in high places.


     When he sees a red wall, he just wants to paint it black.

     Gee, who could've guessed that most Trump voters thought emancipation was a bad idea?

     Irish author given a prestigious literary award by the same college she cleans as a janitor. This is pathetically ironic.

     Maine coon cat with a human face or pygmy werewolf? You be the judge.

     Opportunistic delusion, The shit's real.

      #1, Assange is no journalist. He's a political saboteur and terrorist. #2, any man that helped Trump get elected, through Wikileaks or anywhere else, deserves to get hit with the Espionage Act.

     In case you were curious, these were the biggest corporate deadbeats in America (besides Trump). The list includes Amazon, Netflix, Chevron, Whirlpool, JetBlue, Delta, Goodyear, Halliburton and other tax-dodging scumbag corporations.
      Combined, these 60 corporations earned $79,027,000,000. Even factoring in the lowered tax rate of 21%, these scumbag corporations should've kicked in close to $17 billion last year in corporate taxes. How much education could that have provided? How much infrastructure rebuilding? How much in alternative energy research? How much in medical research?

     An "intervention"? Yeah, that'll happen, Pelosi. They're at least as nuts as he is.

     From a corporate standpoint, there's no such thing as campaign contributions. There are only bribes. Look at the $800,000 given to Lindsey Graham by a Russian crook and the million bucks given to Mitch McConnell by another. Graham's accepted bribe, plus the stolen emails, marked the exact moment Graham went from being a Trump critic to a spittle-flecked attack dog for him.

     $1.57 billion for 1.7 miles of fencing. That comes out to nearly a billion dollars a mile. Yeah, no corruption here, folks.

     Jerry Falwell, Jr bought into a flophouse with... a pool boy. That would be the very same Jerry Falwell, Jr of the questionable photographs. Something you'd like to share with tyhe rest of your homophobic congregation, Jerry?

     From the Blast From the Past files: It's good to be the King but it's also good to be the Princess.

     John Schindler of The Observer wrote this bombshell of an article almost two years ago to the day. Why didn't it become national if not international news and why hasn't Admiral Rogers testified before Congress about this? Once again, this was May 2017, the same month the Mueller probe began. Did Rogers even talk to Mueller's team?

     I don't know why Forbes is characterizing Medicare For All as a threat even though Forbes is infamously right wing. When Bernie advocates for Medicare For All he's fulfilling a promise he made long ago to the American people. That's a good thing. When you threaten, you're holding out the possibility you may do something bad.

     Riddle: What's the difference between cops and serial killers?
     A- Serial killers tend to prey on their own ethnicity.

     Hey, remember that 200 million dollar aluminum plant that's gonna be stuck in Mitch McConnell's state? Guess who Oleg's lobbyist was? The husband of the same woman who was made a federal judge for life just five weeks later, thanks to McConnell. And finally...

     A sixth migrant child had died in US custody after they shuttled her around like a lost piece of luggage around three different hospitals in three different states.
