It’s Official: The Democrats Don’t Care

By mike flugennockSaturday - July 21st, 2018Categories: Health Care, Party Animals, Russiagate, Trumpism, environment, liberty, media

So, this makes it official: the Democratic Party doesn’t care. They aren’t running in the midterms on the issues of skyrocketing college tuition, income disparity, police terrorism and murder, or any other issues directly affecting anyone remaing who bothers to vote — they think they’re going to surf that “Blue Wave” into a majority on the Hill by ramping up the krazy on their empty, hollow conspiracy theories and bargain-basement McCarthyism.

Those of you from outside the US looking in on the state of politics and media discourse here might guess that you were watching a community theatre production of an Ionesco play, and you would be absolutely right. The worst of it, though, is that those of us living here are all pretty much trapped in the play whether we like it or not.

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.

Banana, Banana, Banana, Banana

Welcome once again, folks, to the latest episode of Russiagate Nothingburger! According to the venerable CNN and Washington Post, a billion-dollar plus major Presidential election campaign was basically blown over by 13 people with a bunch of weak, dank-ass memes.

Needless to say, this mess was revealed to a be big, hot, sloppy bucket of nothing in record time — the total cost of the dank-ass meme campaign turned out to have been about $500k (David Brock’s “Correct The Record” spent millions to troll and harass Leftists and Sanders supporters), the dank-ass memes in question had a reach of about 1%, most of the dankness wasn’t even seen until after the “election”, and the indictment contained no evidence of the “election” being affected in any way regardless.

Still, it’s really nice of CNN to take a break from shouting the same lies over and over until it sounds like the truth in order to run a promo warning viewers about people who shout the same lies over and over until it sounds like the truth.

Jeezus, man; the Democrats must be getting pretty goddamn bored with all that winning, huh?
