Blue Wave II: Banzai Pipeline

By mike flugennockThursday - May 3rd, 2018Categories: Middle East, Party Animals, Russiagate, Trumpism, elections, media

Well, the latest news from the “Blue Wave” midterm election scene actually isn’t looking that good for the Democrats. Despite a Reuters poll showing a 9% drop in Milennials’ support for the Democrats and – on top of that – the Chump Schumer DACA sellout, the Doug Jones disaster, their support for a massive war budget and the bombing of Syria, their continued support for Saudi brutality in Yemen and Israeli barbarity in Gaza, the collapse of the Russiagate freakshow and the whole Joy Reid hot mess, the Democrats are still acting all cocky and talking smack about a “Blue Wave” this November that will supposedly flood the House of Representatives with new and better Democrats.

Uh huh. I’ll go heat up the Jiffy-Pop.

Mission Accomplished, no. 3

Just before the latest round of US bombing in Syria, I found myself appalled at a sabre-rattling op-ed in the Washington Post bearing the bloodthirsty declaration “We Need To Go Big In Syria. North Korea Is Watching”. Never mind that we’re bombing Syria again despite no real evidence of chemical attacks, and before the OPCW inspectors could get in to investigate — hell, evidence is for squares these days — the US media have totally shifted from the issue of fabricated chemical attacks to this tinhorn in North Korea who we’re supposed to be scared to death of despite not being able to get his missles to work and whose nuclear arsenal isn’t even 1/10 the size of the US — the only nation in history to have actually used nuclear weapons.

Yeah, let’s make an example of this tinhorn in order to put the fear of god into this other tinhorn — classic crass schoolyard bullying. What else could you expect from an old GW Bush flunkie?

Jaws 2: This Time, It’s Personal

By mike flugennockWednesday - January 10th, 2018Categories: Health Care, Trumpism, liberty, right wingnuts

Just when Jeff Sessions thought it was safe to go back into the water…

As you’ll recall a week or two back, AG Jeff Sessions rescinded the Cole Memo, which prevented Federal authorities from interfering with the policies of states which had legalized marijuana.

Much to most everyone’s delight, Sessions’ action seems to have the opposite effect; Vermont passed a legalization law this week, and Massachusetts is continuing with its plans to begin commercial sales after legalizing this past year.

If the sonofabitch wants a war, he’s got one. Bring it.
Free the heads, jail the feds.
