Minnesota law enforcement, at its based level exhibits some intersectional issues often represented in fictional culture products like Fargo. Their police forces haven’t learned very much since the death of George Floyd. So many examples of bad faith below:

I’m not a lawyer—simple country, unfrozen caveman, or otherwise—but I have to think that knowingly spreading lies about the one thing a company does, thereby shredding that company’s credibility in the eyes of millions of Americans, is kind of a big deal … and might just get you in a wee bit...

Yesterday on Reliable Sources, CNN’s Brian Stelter interviewed his colleague Jake Tapper about the Trump years, which I kind of thought would end in spectacular fashion like a Hindenburg Hindenberder crash but are instead gradually pissing out like a leaky balloon at a children’s birthday party. And Tapper, who frequently interviewed Barbie Riefenstahl Kellyanne...

Biden has enough electors. Now all Trump has to do besides trying to compel GOP governors to overturn their elections is bribe some “faithless electors”. …the hidden mechanics of electing a U.S. president have drawn new scrutiny this year as President Donald Trump continues to deny Biden’s victory and pursues...

I’m convinced Rupert Murdoch secretly launched One America News Network in secret to make Fox News appear sane. Though he probably didn’t expect Donald Trump to fall in love with it quite so easily. (I’m thinking of tweeting that I saw George Soros frantically shoving discarded Trump ballots up bigfoot’s...

Apparently, with four days left, time has run out for the 2016-style October Surprise. Only a major terror attack(s) could make a shift in what looks to be a trending Biden victory. There’s plenty of spookery in how Giuliani and Bannon developed the pre-impeachment attempts to sway the 2020 election. Lots...

Still more contradictions, smoke, and mirrors. And then there’s the lies, as Trump tries to “get within cheating distance”. x Here’s a photo from Trump’s Henderson rally.

Back to 1954 is the desperate place that Trump is going to spread disinformation. The GOP has tried to make Democrats “godless”, because how else could you win an election. Trump even brought his brother’s funeral to the White House to counter the spiritual expressions at the DNC. Trump got his...

Trump wants Confederate spectacles, why else try to attack NASCAR because of its flag ban. The ultimate Confederate spectacle is the resilience of the lost cause narrative perhaps reinforced by the Jim Crow erection of monuments.

So much more than meets the eye, and then there’s stupid fruit of the loins. So much lying and falsehoods in a masque of masks. x Kellyanne Conway: “People are not wearing masks. And I don't think they're not wearing masks because the President of the United States is not...

Follicular justice warriors at Michigan Capitol on Wednesday, likely armed. Because defying a stay-at-home order to propagate a viral contagion is patriotic, something, something.

x The word Pulitzer is trending on Twitter in the U.S. because the president confused the Nobel Prizes with the Pulitzer Prizes.

Trump’s Al Haig moment came yesterday. Wound-up tight, he was. Sometimes we don’t know WTF he’s saying, like “the Democrats were ‘artificially stopped’ by COVID-19”, but yesterday the unhingery got real. Hard for networks to stop broadcasting his lies when he’s so damned self-destructive. Here's video of @PaulaReidCBS grilling Trump on what...

There is a hypothesis that an appearance on Fox News could “convert” some of its audience — but is that demographic too far gone. x Just announced: Fox News “will host its second town hall with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Monday, March 9th in Detroit, Michigan.”— Brian Stelter...

The moral imperative remains, to remove Trump no matter who the Democratic candidate might be. Regardless of one’s moral compunctions, the deadly prospect of continuing the Trump regime cannot justify defecting to anything other than its defeat. The greatest indicators are the malign forces meant to disrupt the 2020 election in ways...

Recall that however vulgar, the Trump Twitter feed has been since the Inaugural, official WH statements. Trump has perhaps crossed a line with regard to the Whistleblower Protection Act, that if anything, as retaliation could add to the numerous possible charges of witness tampering.
