Sean Hannity FREAKS OUT Because Biden Declined an Interview with Fox News

The quantity of certified bull… oh, let's just say malarkey, that is spun by Donald Trump continues to flow like an avalanche of asininity. Just this week he has waxed idiotic about the presidential debates, about politicization of the coronavirus, about voting by mail, and too much more to summarize here. Naturally, Trump's Ministry of…

Rush Limbaugh questions Joe Biden's faith, says liberals worship trees

I’m not religious. You might say I’m an agnostic with Buddhist leanings — but most people would just call me a heathen. And that’s fine with me. I was raised Catholic, and I’m aware that there’s a campaign called Catholics Come Home, but at this point returning to church would feel a bit too much like…

Maureen Dowd is simply the Maggie Haberman of Chanel Rions.

Reminiscent of the Londo Cotton “send US troops” fiasco, the NY Times editorial folks need some staffing changes like the USPS. A vendetta is not a sports utility vehicle, MoDo really hates the Clintons – ya think? Maureen Dowd managed to forget about Clinton/Kaine AND McCain/Palin. “Correction: Aug. 8, 2020 An earlier version of this column incorrectly…

Trump mocks Black Lives Matter protests and mask-wearing in one fell swoop

Jesus Christ, this asshole. At yesterday’s coronavirus presser/super-spreader event in Bedminster, New Jersey, Donald Trump sarcastically referred to the WASPy weirdos in attendance as “peaceful protesters.” It was his way of excusing their flouting of social distancing and mask-wearing guidelines. Because he’s just that big of a prick. Huffington Post: At the news conference held…

Postal Service Triples the Cost of Mailing Ballots to Voters

This is a story in progress; I’ll try to get more information soon. American Prospect is reporting that Capitol Forum (paywall) is saying Trump’s toady Postmaster General is striking another blow at voting by mail: The Postal Service has informed states that they’ll need to pay first-class 55-cent postage to mail ballots to voters, rather…

The Daily Bucket: Good for the Hawk, Bad for the Robin.

Trigger warning for sadness. The sun shown through the russet and tawny and cream of what seemed to be a feathered explosion in the robin’s nest.  I watched from a few feet away, with only enough time to lift a hand. Two Robin sentinels sped to the scene but the hawk’s powerful wingstrokes carried it, with…

Ali Velshi strikes again with an economic truth seldom told on cable

There are few cable or network news hosts willing to go where Ali Velshi goes economically and politically. He has the skill set necessary to get the point across without excessive offense to the sensibilities of the oligarchy. Ali Velshi did it again. x x YouTube Video Watch the full episode here. I was busy finishing my new…

Biden's Latino/African American gaffe was no gaffe at all. He's right.

Once more the media got played and with that many Americans. Joe Biden's Latin American/African American gaffe was not a gaffe at all. Biden need not claim this gaffe x x YouTube Video Watch the full episode here. As a Black/Latino/Caribean man, AKA an Afro-Latino/Afro-Caribean married to an African American woman, I take offense to Donald…

Another betrayal: Republicans sabotage COVID talks so Trump can sign meaningless executive order

The Senate has adjourned for the weekend, after refusing to negotiate with Democrats for a desperately-needed COVID-19 relief bill. Democrats had compromised, agreeing to come down yet again to $2 trillion spent to help the country through the worst health and economic crisis in our nation's history. It’s just too expensive, Republicans say. For context, the GOP Tax Scam—a 2017 giveaway to the…
