The situation has become fraught with increases in attacks on civilians, amid charges and counter charges. Bombardment continues and a few Ukrainian counter attacks are offset by brutality in places like Mariupol. Russia appears to be trying to achieve the capture of the land bridge from Moldova to Donbas. Ukraine...

Bombardment continues with over 900 missiles launched against Ukraine and the notable media appearance was the on-air protest by an editor on Russian State TV. She was arrested and seems to be held incommunicado from her lawyers. “(T)oo many civilian targets have been hit by Russian bombs for them all...

A guy banned from the Idaho capitol grounds runs for governor. He hates the government so much he wants to become governor. We are in strange times, but after all, Stalin predicted TikTok. I took this video of what I’m prettty sure is Ammon Bundy getting arrested. Go to the end...

Imagine what a Trump Funeral would look like. After all, Trump turned America into a funeral home with 400,000+ deaths. Except for a birthday call early in his tenure, President Donald Trump's only interaction with the past presidents was at the funeral for one of them, George H.W. Bush. By the end...

Trump cannot still win simply because an alternate universe presents different electors while he litigates in this one. Only feeble stunts remain. Even the Trump DC hotel has conceded the election, freeing hotel rooms previously reserved for a Trump inaugural. Supporters of President Trump have made similar arguments that Pence, as...

I recently came across a typical Twitter argument about the CIA promoting modern art as propaganda. The usual distorting tweet-discourse occurred but what remained are somewhat paranoid discussions of whether the CIA supported Modern Art. They really didn’t, as much as they supported US propaganda in general. The argument about CIA and Art evolved...

Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, the jarvanka of Roger Stones tried a new scam to suppress votes with a robocall in major cities to misinform Black voters. The Trumpian bamboozle is strong with them. Trump had an average audience of 21.6 million viewers Thursday. Biden’s final total was 24.6 million...

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. It was amusing that the press tried to goad the WH Press Secretary into an admission...

Apparently there’s RWNj demand for something that’s like Twitter but monetizes subscription scams and harvests influence among like-minded crazies.  Parler is the RWNJ refuge from Twitter, like it makes much of a difference considering Twitter still allows Trump to tweet. So much work just so you can show reactionary “tongue-in-cheek”...

It’s worth reading Anne Applebaum’s Atlantic article “History Will Judge the Complicit”, or does the GOP wish to reveal the truth of conservative principles as oxymoron. “The question now is whether the old American mantras, the appeals to traditions of democracy and the rule of law, still work—or whether they have...

We note today 100,000 deaths as well as the meme #JusticeForCarolyn in its fabricated disinformation of what could be a true story about Trump’s treatment of his paramours’ abortions (see Elliot Broidy). After all Trump copes with mass death by diverting attention with something else spectacular, in this case yet another debunked conspiracy...

Received this e-mail yesterday from the Pennsylvania Democratic Party: At a recent PA legislative hearing, GOP Representative Cris Dush made an absurd and insensitive comment likening Pennsylvania's COVID-19 response to the regimes of Hitler and Stalin. x YouTube Video In times of crisis, we need more from state government than self-absorbed...

Rather than doubling COVID-19 testing, spectacles worthy of Space Force. Because Stalin had no monopoly on cultural marxism in championing national unity. The Pentagon is planning a multicity tour of the U.S. military’s top flight demonstration teams to “champion national unity” amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to senior U.S. officials and...

Live Blog below. Summary: any attempt to “change” the pattern for these events was lost today. It had no different structure than other COVID taskforce briefings. It was the same as before. Trump blamed others and lied again. The biggest lies related to the reality of testing in terms of rates per thousand...

Always read the fine print. From section 2(i) of Alabama’s new “It’s Uter-us not Uter-you” law: (i) It is estimated that 6,000,000 Jewish people were murdered in German concentration camps during World War II; 3,000,000 people were executed by Joseph Stalin's regime in Soviet gulags; 2,500,000 people were murdered during...

This world has seen its share of dictators, and they all tend to share common characteristics. Hard, steely eyed autocrats, Men of iron will, with fists to match. Men like Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Amin, and Ceausescu come to mind. But when the have-nots, never-wills, and shitless-wonders of the United States...

Stalin had this nasty little trick he played on those who supported the Russian Revolution and were part of the political establishment.  Stalin would single out a faction of the original revolutionaries — the socialists for starters — and accuse them of being traitors and counter-revolutionaries.  The diehard communists turned on socialists...

Originally posted at Eclectablog. On Monday of this week, Donald Trump revoked the media credentials of journalists working for the Washington Post covering his events.
