#Trumpgate is a tragic-comic diversion from the dysfunctional establishment that foisted him up in the first place.

Someone on Facebook asked me what stood out from the Mueller Report. The first thing, “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION” vs “This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I’m fucked.” Certainly “Putin won” is going to jump out for a lot of people.

So far nothing has really surprised me. I was a professional opposition researcher for 5 years up to the point Trump got elected and having been a close follower of both GOP and mob politics, I was confident enough to bet 100 bucks on him not completing his first term of office before he was sworn in. The guy reeked of Russian mafia and money laundering before he ever set foot in the White House.

To me, the corruption, vice, and impeachable offenses are just comic diversions from the damage the Republican party has done through his administration legally: the castration of the EPA, the insane fiscal policy, the Trillion dollar boost in the defense budget that imbeciles applaud and that my party rolled over on… because the big stupid wall was a deal breaker but more nuclear weapons and the untold burden of storing new nuclear waste for centuries moving forward was not worth a protest. Can’t be seen as weak on armageddon, I guess.

Meanwhile we don’t have enough money to spend less on healthcare for better outcomes with Medicare For All because Jesus Christ died for insurance giants to make hundreds of millions fisting people out of their benefits and giving us automated call systems to whisper sweet nothings at us while we go broke on medical costs.

Furthermore, fighting for the pre-born these days means not caring about measuring the cancer cluster from your local EtO provider. Just like Reagan was the doofus they pulled off the ranch to play the new Warren Harding while the scumbags had a field day, this sad sack #45 gets to wear the blame for stuffing his pockets with foreign money and pay-to-play deals while the puppet masters rake all the more without consequence. This is a real shit sandwich and we all get to take a bite.

I’m still waiting for the comprehensive report on the Crosscheck purge. But then again, there’s not much to say about votes being legally stolen.


America now with memes for to re-educate at glorious Russian Troll Farms

Is good? Maybe no.

Greetings, comrades. You may already be serving Mother Russia and her stooge American infomercial con-artist President and Soviet Republican party while resisting.

Am sure? Is car working? It has wheels. It has brakes. But maybe defogger broken. Maybe cheap tires ready to peel off any instant.

But what about memes? Memes good. Facebook good. Twitter good. Is all very good. No? Maybe?

Some pro-Bernie sites and some pro-Hillary sites (neither actually connected to the public figures they champion nor connected to any current or upcoming election) are troll accounts designed to tear the Democratic party apart. Of course, we do enough infighting to do that by ourselves, but full-time pro and amateur trolls giving us metaphorical pointy sticks and knives to help us isn’t helpful to create positive outcomes.

Not sure what Russia’s endgame is, but they were playing the progressive and centrist factions and both parties off of each other in the last election cycle. I’m seeing signs that this is continuing to happen. There’s a virtual psychological ploy being used to encourage, by design sometimes, unwittingly sometimes, tribal gang wars within the progressive movement. We didn’t get Trump by accident. We’ve been walking this way since the Reagan Reaction. The Resistance needs a United Front or reactionaries will stack the courts and all the legitimate seats of power with their own lawless might makes right kind.
