Media, Bloody Media

Not even in the sickest depths of Iraq War v2.0 did I hear anyone in the media quite this wide-open raving, drooling and horny for war as ex-White House henchman and current right-wing radio howler Sebastian Gorka. Dude totally sails over the edge of the Earth, comes around the other side, proclaims the US to be a “hyperpower”, then sails over the edge again on — who else but — Lou Dobbs’ program on Fox Business.

The guy is scum to the bone — just check him out for a few seconds — but you still have to give him credit for having the sheer naked cajones to come right how and declare how horny he is for war in the public media. Dude’s not even hiding it; big ups for that, at least.

George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley, in a Los Angeles Times op-ed this week, gave us one of the most succinct and elegant analyses of the ongoing impeachment circus I’ve seen so far:

The Democrats have just voted to hand Trump horrific surveillance powers by reauthorizing the Patriot Act, and given him a $738bn war budget (including his Space Force), but he’s still a Russian stooge and a threat to Democracy™, so let’s impeach his ass anyway.

Christ, who the hell are they kidding?

Here’s a fun factoid for you: at least 70% of Earth’s lithium reserves are in Bolivia — you know lithium, the stuff that’s in the batteries in your phone, your laptop, your trendy electric car…?

Quite a happenstance for the US-backed fascist coupmongers there, huh?
