The Latest Russiagate “Smoking Gun”

By mike flugennockWednesday - November 15th, 2017Categories: 2016 Election, Russiagate, elections, media

And so, yet another wannabe neo-McCarthyite “journalist” is busted faking it at a major US media outlet. I can’t pretend I’m not enjoying this.

This was inspired by an article that appeared this week in Sputnik News which totally shreds the hell out of a sloppy-ass hit piece by Julia Ioffe in The Atlantic about a meeting between Julian Assange and Donald Trump Jr. which was trumpeted as some kind of “smoking gun” that would validate the last year and a half’s worth of neo-McCarthyite conspiracist freakery.

Drip, drip, drip — muthafuckaaahhhs.

Nah Nah, Hey Hey, Goodbye

Last week, after having their asses handed to them on the healthcare bill, Democrats in the House Of Representatives inexplicably, gleefully burst into a chorus of “nah nah, hey hey, goodbye” in response.

This was claimed to have been a sarcastic response to indicate that Conservatives would lose their seats in next year’s midterm elections because of their support of “Trumpcare”, but it was just another example of the Democratic Party’s arrogance, short-sightedness, selfishness, and utter political tone-deafness.

Yer Liberals, no. 3

For the better part of a year and a half, Liberals have been screeching about how Sanders wasn’t “a real Democrat”, saying he was “damaging” the Democrats and that he and his supporters should leave the party — and after a year and a half of bullying, public insults, blame-shifting, gaslighting and other abuse, most progressive Democrats and other Left constituencies are thinking that ditching the Democratic Party sounds like a helluvan idea.

Needless to say these days, Liberals aren’t getting the reaction they’re hoping for from the Left on that point and, of course, the Liberals are having kind of a hard time getting their heads around it. Seems that finally, Liberal Democrats and the Left have reached common ground – just not in the way Liberals wanted.

And by the way, I need to send a shout-out and huge-ass props to Nina Illingworth, one of my favorite Left bloggers, who busts balls with straight raw truth, written in the kind of no-bullshit, smash-mouth style I really dig. A tweet she posted a week or so ago pretty much handed me this gag on a plate. Don’t forget to check out her blog, and toss a few bucks in her tip jar if you can. Thanks again, Nina.
