So about this miraculous turn around in North Korea....(sniff, sniff)

Does anyone...(sniff, sniff) smell anything? It smells like....hmm....that's it!

It smells almost like Iran Contra...

Reality check on the Manafort judge...thing...panic...what have you.

Anyone know what happens if he rules in favor of the sitting fascist?

Manafort's case dismissed?
No jeopardy attaches?
Judge can't shut down Mueller?
Make Mueller refer the case to a US Atty Office?

Obviously the optics suck, but the fascist has been and will continue with that propaganda campaign.

Something is up....why wasn't Trump out in front of the cameras taking credit for announced talks?

Thus the People is only a theatrical fiction.

"Ur-Fascism is based upon a selective populism, a qualitative populism, one might say.
In a democracy, the citizens have individual rights, but the citizens in their entirety have a
political impact only from a quantitative point of view one follows the decisions of the
majority. For Ur-Fascism, however, individuals as individuals have no rights, and the
People is conceived as a quality, a monolithic entity expressing the Common Will. Since
no large quantity of human beings can have a common will, the Leader pretends to be
their interpreter. Having lost their power of delegation, citizens do not act; they are only
called on to play the role of the People. Thus the People is only a theatrical fiction. To
have a good instance of qualitative populism we no longer need the Piazza Venezia in
Rome or the Nuremberg Stadium. There is in our future a TV or Internet populism, in
which the emotional response of a selected group of citizens can be presented and
accepted as the Voice of the People."


Ur-Fascism by Umberto Eco 1995

Wild Wild West in Houston

Car accident devolves into a gunfight in the streets of Houston. Yeeeeeeeehaw.

No one dead, thankfully, one woman grazed by a bullet.

What's in your wallet...

The beginning of the consumerist orgy is scheduled in approximately 24 hours.

What you will doing?

Have to wonder....

is someone going to be at the fascist's shindig in FL to get a video of the stiff arm salutes and cries of Heil Trump?

Anyone got their head around the Iran deal.....

what is to stop the Iranians from giving our sitting fascist the finger and going back to building their nuclear arsenal?

Schism that cripples the GOP or fascist one party rule

Which do we get if Bannon succeeds?
