Trumpery

Merriam-Webster definition of TRUMPERY.

Trumpery: Worthless nonsense, junk. The word's been sitting there in the dictionary, waiting for me to come along and find a use for it.

While the federal government goes into shutdown mode (again) due to the total incompetence of the GOP, Donnie Trumpery is at his shithole resort in Florida, pitching a fund-raising bash (100,000 bucks per couple). Glad to see he's keeping his priorities straight.

The secret memo that will end the Mueller investigation? More proof that the GOP knows its voters are the dumbest assholes on earth, and will fall for anything they see discussed by Sean Hannity or the other Fox News scum.

It's apparently official. Federal government shutdown on the first anniversary of the so-called precedent's (sic) inauguration.

Shut 'er down

Daily Kos explains why the next shutdown of the federal government might be permanent. Here's a hint: It involves Donnie Placenta and Chinless Mitch McConnell.

Rule One in American politics: Never, under any circumstances, give the Republican Party simultaneous control of the legislative and executive branches. Failure to adhere to Rule One always results in disaster, usually on a grand scale. It makes no sense to turn responsibility for governing over to people who hate government, have no interest in governing, and lack the skills and aptitude required to be effective.

Loyalty Oaths?

JENNIFER RUBIN explains why we need to clean out Congress and send most of those Republicans home in November.

Added 5:54 PM Wednesday 17 January: The House Intelligence Committee under Devin Nunes was a goddamned waste of tax dollars, and things haven't improved under the acting chairman. I recommend this committee suspend all activity until there's a Democratic majority in the House, and Adam Schiff can be in charge.

The only votes that matter

Mitch McConnell has been acting like a guy who knows he can't lose. It started in 2016 when he locked down the Supreme Court vacancy created by Fat Tony Scalia's death until it could be filled in 2017 by a Republican president. If I didn't know better, I might think the Russians are now in control of American elections.

More from Kos on a related topic: Donnie Placenta's involvement in the laundry business (money, that is).

Money Talks...

Link to The Dallas Morning News on Russian money pouring into the hands of Republicans. Eventually, the rest of the American news media will start covering this.

Washington Monthly: How Fox News could end the so-called precedent's (sic) term tomorrow (not that they will).

Update 9:08 PM 8 January: It's always entertaining to watch Republicans like Steve Bannon belly-crawling through pools of their own diarrhea.

Bible Thumping

Robert Jeffress, huckster and shill for Donnie Dick Drip, explains why evangelicals who take the bible seriously love and adore Donnie. Right now, America needs a lot less of Donnie and no conservative evangelicals at all. Atheism is looking better all the time.

Summer walks in Texas

Judging by the amount of water on driveways and sidewalks and in the street, some Texans seem to think you can grow concrete and asphalt using lawn sprinklers.
