Um, Bri-Fi, I would say that you need to step up and do the right thing here…


…and I think this provides more of the proper context…


…and kudos to New York AG Eric Schneiderman for this (re, Net Neutrality – and yeah, Ajit Pai is nothing but a typical Trump regime liar)…



…and kudos also to Elizabeth Shackleford, speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour about what Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is doing to the U.S. State Department…



…and John Iadarola tells us that Repug U.S. House Rep Blake Farenthold is leaving under the proverbial cloud (NSFW)…



…and here’s another installment of “This Day In Doomsy History” (more or less) from 12/16/08, in which “Santa” Bush rewarded his cronies pretty much like Generalissimo Trump is now: I’m including this for at least two reasons…first, as far as I’m concerned, this is how ANY Republican in high federal office is likely to act, and second, this should be a response to any attempts at image rehabilitation on behalf of Number 43 (actor doesn’t look a lot like him, but he does have the voice down pat I believe)…



…and here are a couple of seasonal selections – likely cutting back on the holiday tunes this year.

God, I can’t believe it’s actually been five years (here – and on a federal level, not a goddamn thing happened in response)…


…and as expected, the corporate criminals of the regime of Generalissimo Trump voted to kill Net Neutrality today (here and here); way too little too damn late for some of the “R” party clowns in the video noted by Cenk and Ana (and again, I thoroughly detest the wingnutosphere, but I’ll never say that they shouldn’t have a voice)…



…and in light of this highly interesting news, I thought it was appropriate to revisit this great “Rewrite” clip from Lawrence O’Donnell (more here on Ryan’s one-time hero)…



…and potty mouth Kyle K. tells us that the Gropenfuhrer has a new accuser, this time from Fix Noise (and I agree with Kyle about the Dems “weaponizing” accusations – going back and forth on whether or not Al Franken should have stepped down prior to completion of the Ethics Committee investigation; Chris Hayes, who I sincerely thought knew better, recently tried to draw an equivalency on “All In” between what Franken and #45 did; not condoning either, but to me, that’s what you should expect from The Comcast Network given that Franken was their chief antagonist – NSFW)…



…and given this awful anniversary, here are a couple of more muted seasonal selections.

Wednesday Stuff


(I’m going to try and get this thing fired up again after a bit of an unplanned shutdown.)

Congratulations to Dem U.S. Senator Doug Jones in Alabama; yeah, you could argue that it took a confluence of a lot of factors coming into play the right way, especially given the fact that Roy Moore somehow “ran the table” with white voters in spite of it all (which is pretty sickening as far as I’m concerned), but I agree with the assessment that Charles Barkley was pretty damn spot-on here…



…and oh yeah, we still have to fight that garbage Repug tax bill, as Bernie reminds us; keep calling 877-650-0039…


…and here are a couple of more seasonal selections.

(Posting may be sporadic for a little while – not sure at the moment…)

Today is the day in Alabama, people (I think Cenk takes it a little too easy on Monica Whatsername in this clip, but I guess we should be even-handed for real here)…



…and do you want to be reminded of what a real leader sounds like? Watch it and weep like I just about did…


…and this goes out to everyone celebrating the festival of lights…



…and since it’s this guy’s birthday today, I thought this was appropriate.

Keep calling 877-650-0039, folks; the only way the “one percent” will pay their fair share is if they’re MADE to pay for it, dragged kicking and screaming into the cold light of day as it were…


…and while we should do what we can to assist the folks out west victimized by the hellacious wildfires out west if we are able to, let’s not forget the following (also related to that wretched tax bill congressional Repugs are trying to pass over to our Tiny Handed Treasonous Orange Dictator)…


…and leave it Repug PA State House Rep Daryl Metcalfe to embarrass our beloved commonwealth once again, as noted here (more here – fourth bullet)…



…and in light of the Gropenfuhrer’s recent announcement on Jerusalem, I’ll bet you KNEW this was coming, right? (more here)…


…and I thought this was a pretty well done, NSFW analysis of the recent Franken/Roy Moore stuff by Hasan Piker (the one exception I can think of on the Repug side is the thoroughly bilious life form known as Trent Franks, who apparently realized that asking his staffers to serve as his baby mamas, or something, was going just a tad too far and has resigned, as noted here)…


…and playing off of the previous video a bit, Sam Bee reminds us of the shitty behavior women in public life have had to deal with from men in the media, among other professions (NSFW also)…


…and here is another seasonal selection…



…and since it’s December 8th, it’s time for this tune once more.

Yeah, it looks like Not Your Father’s Republican Party is willing to help elect someone accused of sexual misconduct with underage girls for the U.S. Senate – indeed, as long as Roy Moore has that “magic R” after his name, all is apparently forgiven (to do something about it, click here...and yeah, I don't think the difference between Moore, Our Tiny Handed Treasonous Dictator and his playmates and the "D" team could be more obvious based on this...more to come I'm sure)…



…and there’s still time to protest this garbage GOP tax bill – keep jamming up the phone lines…877-650-0039…


…and I realize that we have to keep going after Citizens United (which is DEFINITELY related to the tax scam) even though it’s pushing the proverbial Rock of Sisyphus (you can Google it – thanks once more, High Court of Hangin’ Judge JR!), but do so we must (and kudos to Oregon Dem Sen. Jeff Merkley for reminding us)…


…and Lawrence O’Donnell tells us about the “deep state” private spies weighed by the Gropenfuhrer (and no, this isn’t a headline from The Onion, though it would be I’m sure if we were talking about any other preznit…oh and speaking of nuttiness from Number 45, more to come on this I’m sure as well)…



...and I feel obligated to bring you another seasonal selection, so here it is...



...and happy recent 85th birthday to the one and only Richard Penniman.

Oh, and let it be known for the record that, in addition to voting for that utterly disgusting and craven, ruinous tax bill, “Bri Fi” voted to send it to conference too of course (here...call 877-650-0039 to do something about it, and if you live in PA-08 and want to let Bri-Fi know personally, call 202-225-4276)…



…and 1600 showing up to protest in Berks County, which went for Generalissimo Trump by 10 points, as Rachel Maddow notes? I call that a sign o’the times, all right…



…and yeah, this is some lame ass excuse to get rid of Sam Seder at MSNBC…



Update 12/6/17: Oh, and by the way, in light of the pic above, I think that lame ass MSNBC network ought to read this from one of their contributors (try spelling the name of our political party correctly for starters).

Update 12/7/17: They're still clowns, MSNBC I mean (here).

...and here is another holiday selection.
