Wednesday Stuff

By the way, when I refer to him as Generalissimo Trump, I’m not kidding…



…and I wonder if the "Gropenfuhrer" would actually pay attention to climate change if we tried to turn the whole thing into a “reality” TV show produced by President Tiny-Handed Egomaniac – naaah


…and here is Bill Maher’s “New Rule” for Trump voters (NSFW)...



...and K.O. is out with #51 (NSFW – the fact that 18 states in this country are presently trying to criminalize protest truly IS scary)...



…and in light of the latest dustup between Bill Orally and Dem U.S. House Rep Maxine Waters (started by the former of course), I thought Cenk here in particular did a good job of tracing the fevered, idiotic ranting of Billo, Alex Jones and other media clowns to their idiot followers (and I have a feeling that, if JB were still alive, he’d be waiting in the Fix Noise parking lot for the instigator of this nonsense, with evil intent…papa don’t take no mess)…



…and speaking of music, happy 50th birthday to John Popper of Blues Traveler (of Princeton, NJ - I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore).

Tuesday Stuff

(And by the way, concerning this graphic, this guy voted yes, for all you PA-08 folk - and don't believe the "splash page" BS.)

I hope all of you who did anything whatsoever to help get Generalissimo Trump elected continue to be proud of yourselves…


…and Kyle K. tells us that civilian deaths from U.S. airstrikes are on the rise under Number 45 (not saying Obama was totally innocent either, but let’s be straight, OK? And NSFW of course)…



…and as much as I respect Kyle K., I think he’s dead wrong to say the Dems shouldn’t be holding Fergus Laing’s feet to the metaphorical fire on Russia – of course, thanks to that gutless lackey Devin Nunes, I’m sure there will be NO House oversight on all of this anyway…



…and K.O. brings up the “T” word, though it is pretty much widely echoed by now…



…and yes, we indeed have no choice but to keep fighting (here and here)…


…and here’s a cool tune to hear while we rearrange the deck chairs as the iceberg approaches.

Monday Stuff

How many ways is Neil Gorsuch a terrible Supreme Court nominee? Well…


…and Lawrence O’Donnell talks with Dem U.S. House Rep Jim Himes about the open hearing on Russia that was cancelled by Repug Chairman Devin Nunes, which really isn’t surprising given Nunes’s proclivity to help Generalissimo Trump instead of the constituents that Nunes allegedly represents, to say nothing of the rest of the country…



…and Samantha Bee gives us more grim details here on the budget from “Donald Drumpf” as only she can (all those downward numbers sound like the stock ticker - NSFW)…



…and I’ll plan to get to at least one more clip from Bill Maher later, but for now I think this is good stuff from Dr. Timothy Snyder…



…and don’t look now, but “Donald Drumpf” and his pals want to sell our browsing history to the highest bidder – yet another casualty of last year’s utterly wretched election results (I think that’s a hilarious statistic about the Repugs and porn…commendable outrage by Thom, by the way)…



…and happy belated 75th birthday to Aretha Franklin.

Saturday Stuff

Yesterday mattered the most to people like the courageous lady in this clip, who spoke at a town hall for NJ’s waste-of-space U.S. House Rep Leonard Lance – yes, Lance knew the political calculation here in siding with Generalissimo Trump, but I grudgingly have to give him credit for opposing the “Trumpcare” scam that also has Paul Ryan’s fingerprints all over it…


...and by the way, once more (this)...

via GIPHY

…and hat tip also to actor Mark Ruffalo on Twitter for this; during all of the intrigues with Trump and Russia, Dem Congressman Adam Schiff truly has stood tall…


…and here’s a great “Now This” videos that I meant to get to earlier in the week; warning: it goes right to the gut, for good reason – I'd like anyone yelling about taking in Syrian refugees to watch this video and then try to explain to me how you could still have a soul (and I’m also wondering how many of the traumatized children of today will be the thoroughly radicalized jihadists of tomorrow)...


…though, in a more hopeful vein, Cecile Richards reminds us that, though yesterday was a great victory, we all need to keep up the fight…


……and what do you say to an encore of two more great Chuck Berry tunes (I think “Memphis” is performed below with Elephant’s Memory…also, the legendary contribution of pianist Johnnie Johnson deserves to be remembered as well on those awesome ‘50s tunes).

Friday Stuff

So much winning (here)...

…and yeah, “not yet” (and good advice here)…



...and as David Corn so aptly put it, I'm winded too from all of the "success"...


…and in a related story, as they say, kudos to Dem U.S. House Rep Alcee Hastings for this (great stuff - would that our "faith leaders" in the Catholic Church in this archdiocese would have the same attitude; well, to be fair, I guess some of them do)...


…all of which is applicable to the latest commentary from K.O. here; maybe’s he’s a little harsh to someone who’s a private citizen, but I’m about at the point where I don’t care anymore; if you were dumb enough to help get Generalissimo Trump elected, you deserve all the ridicule you get…



...and yeah, we know what Sarah Palin is, but I still had to note this (re, Kyle commenting on Caribou Barbie's attack on Colin Kaepernick for donating to Meals on Wheels - NSFW)...



…and by the way, like idiot father, like idiot son (re, the recent terror attack in the UK)…


…and I’d like to close this week’s tribute to Chuck Berry with yet another hit…



…as well as his signature tune.

Thursday Stuff

So how many ways exactly is Neil Gorsuch, Generalissimo Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, a total disaster (and putting aside for a second the fact that, as Rachel Maddow among others has pointed out, why exactly are we considering ANYONE or ANYTHING from a White House that is under a confirmed FBI investigation)? Well, for starters…


…and this tells us about Gorsuch and Alphonse Maddin, a truck driver for TransAm Trucking who was apparently going into shock and acted to save himself but was fired anyway, a decision Gorsuch supported in his ruling…


…and yeah, I would say that the parallels are more than a little disturbing too (so many problems with Gorsuch, chief among those being that he won’t give a straight answer)…


…and kudos to Sen. Charles Schumer, who thus far has maintained a spine during the ruinous reign of Number 45, for this


...and it sounds like Tweety "found the nut" again on Gorsuch here - good job...



…and Seth Meyers tells us about other jobs Gorsuch has had (and a zinger with the last one - nice work)...



…and returning to Chuck Berry, he had a bit of a resurgence years ago owed in part to this movie



…and you’d better believe The Fab Four (Lennon in particular of course) credited Berry as an early influence.

More Wednesday Stuff

I’m sure Devin Nunes will have a job waiting for him in the administration of President Tiny-Handed Egomaniac, assuming Nunes is voted out of office as he should be and also assuming President Big Orange Cheetoh isn’t in jail by then (and when the Trumpsters are losing Fix Noise...yeah, that sucks for them, huh?)…



…and I’ll put up some videos about the stuff going on with the Supreme Court nominee of “Donald Drumpf” shortly, but in the meantime, I’ll let Kyle tell us the following (NSFW…though MSNBC has pissed me off plenty of times, and I’m sure they will again as long as Steve Kornacki continues to exist on TV, I definitely wouldn’t consider that network to be the voice of the Democratic Party – Kyle makes a GREAT point about HHS Secretary Tom Price, though, and the importance of civics also)…



…and RIP Chuck Barris – I don’t think it’s a bad thing to celebrate a little absurdity in the midst on the almost-unending stories of intrigue and likely wrongdoing criminality…



…and I’m going to take a break from my Chuck Berry remembrance to put up this tune in solidarity with the UK in light of today’s awful attack, which took place pretty much where we visited not quite a year ago.

Wednesday Stuff

I’ve got a lot of stuff on Neil Gorsuch that I’ll try to get to shortly, but I think I’d better focus on the Repugs and their typically sick, twisted attempt to try and repeal the Affordable Care Law since, as noted here, Sen. Mr. Elaine Chao may schedule a vote tomorrow (and credit where it’s due to “Bri-Fi” in PA-08 who said he would oppose the so-called “American Health Care Act”)…



…and while Trevor Noah compares #45 to a bus, K.O. takes a less ambiguous path and just calls Trump an idiot, which is about right unfortunately…



..and Cenk tells us here about the lady who didn't think Generalissimo Trump would cut her "Meals on Wheels" (more here...and isn't this typical for Mr.-Puppy-Dog-Eyes-With-The-Shiv?)...



…oh, and did you know that “the blahs” and “inner-city men” in general are lazy, and they’re responsible for poverty, as opposed to the corporatist greed-head monsters currently in charge of the “party of Lincoln”? At least, that’s according to Ryan, as noted here in a clip from 3/19/14…yep, it’s another installment of "This Day In Doomsy History," albeit a day or so late…



…and turning once more to Chuck Berry, there are almost too many good covers of his great tunes to catalog, but, as far as I’m concerned, these two should make that list (sorry the JT video is goofed up).
