Stop using GOP talking points re: healthcare – you already “pay for it”

Call private health insurance costs “taxes in everything but name.” Analysis: Americans already pay a "gigantic" hidden health-care tax, economists say. The question of who will foot the bill for Medicare-for-all is almost beside the point. https://t.co/12fott4Bqf — The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) October 16, 2019 To some economists, the question is moot: Americans already pay a massive…

For #Trumpeachment, there are more 'bad hombres' than the '3 Amigos'

Will Trump throw Mulvaney under the bus, as the rest of the ‘3 Amigos” — Gordon Sondland and Rick Perry come before the House committees, after Kurt Volker has already testified. Mick Mulvaney arranged meetings between Rudy and Don when Giuliani was bragging publicly about enlisting Ukranians to probe the Bidens. Mulvaney met frequently with Gordon Sondland, and hid…

Even more Trump nonsense this week as disinformation spews at the White House

Fortune Cookie economics: Peter Navarro's alter ego is no hand grenade

Like David Brooks and Thomas Friedman, conservatives use (non-) fictional everymen in their writing. WH adviser Peter Navarro is no different: his is the thinly disguised Ron Vara, no different than David Dennison or John Barron. Today the Comical of Higher Education takes Peter Navarro to task for his sinophobia which only got attention from the WH…

close general elections favor Republicans, unless the Electoral College is dissolved

Newsweek reports that a new study finds that inversion elections where a popular vote winner loses, favor the GOP. 2020’s hope for Individual-1 lies in a repeat of marginally close outcomes in swing/battleground states. GOP candidates for president can expect to be victorious in 65 percent of future presidential elections and University of Texas at Austin researchers…

Trump talks Turkey: sternly-worded threats, tweeted loudly

Trump has now made threats against Turkey, having tried to bluff Erdogan and failed, again, as Axios reports. Unfortunately, Trump cannot erase a crisis of his own making with initiatives that will take weeks to implement while people die. This raises more questions about conversations between Trump and Erdogan especially since Russia completed a new…

The Death of Atatiana Jefferson

Let us assume all the worse; Atatiana Jefferson came to her window, peered out with a gun in hand, ready to shoot, refused to comply with an order from an unidentified man to drop her weapon, and he fired in fear for his life. Now let us deal in reality and common sense.  A neighbor…

#Trumpeachment – Fiona Hill is neither Kathy Griffin nor George Soros

Fiona Hill will appear before Congress today as the impeachment inquiry continues. The RWNJ troll-bots have been busily calling her a “George Soros mole”, even as one assumes that when she was appointed to the NSC in 2017 by Trump, any such association would have been disqualifying. But the current buzz by nutters is that…

Trump still vaguely threatening sanctions on Turkey, how empty are they?

Is sanctioning Turkey a kind of virtue signaling or is the Trump administration prepping the ground to lift Russian sanctions? In case you forgot that there was a monstrous steel imports tariff on Turkey that Trump promptly rescinded, because it’s virtuous to double a tariff then reduce it by 50% to appear like something happened. …

Trump golfs during #ImpeachNow rallies in 60 cities

Turkish atrocities against Kurds begin: casualties reach hundreds, 70,000 displaced so far

The predicted bloodbath unfolds. Wapo does an excellent summary of the current situation. x Turkish state-backed media hails a “successful operation” to “neutralize” an unarmed 35-year old woman working to unite Arabs, Christians, and Kurds in NE Syria. Ms. Hevrin Khalef was reportedly dragged from a vehicle and shot to death. That’s a war crime….

Trump faked an orgasm at campaign rally, because he's not an insult comic

Trump will make the nation go blue, if only because of his shtick, doing his insult-comic bit at the campaign rallies. The problem is that he truly believes that these rallies constitute his presidency, entertaining a cult following. Because he’s a star, the WH gig is a cover of some Sasha Baron Cohen performance. Each speech…

Trump tries to flip Minnesota with yet another campaign rally

Trump is at the Minneapolis Target Center tonight for yet another campaign rally. Below is the Daniel Dale tweet thread in anticipation of another even more stupid Trump statement.
