Life outside the bubble
The giant hoax is Trump. How can this complete phony be responsible for the direction of the Supreme Court for decades to come? Everything about his presidency is illegitimate and yet the spineless senate and “ fair and balanced” media let it go. Not sure where to go with my disgust and outrage.
And then the Republicans will jam through Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, Trump's tax fraud case eventually gets to the Court and Barrett votes to acquit because that's the deal that is already set in stone. Goodbye ACA, goodbye right to choose, and then the Republican party's wet dream for thirty years, the destruction of Medicare and Social Security. The corruption will simply continue and this news story like all the others will fade into darkness. I'm convinced that the only thing that can stop this madness is a blue tsunami the likes of which this country has never seen. A thrashing so convincing that there would be no way to cheat Trumps way to a second term. Short of that, the US becomes the next Turkey. We'll still have three branches of government, a Supreme Court, there will be elections but it will just be for show. We're almost there already.
It was a joy seeing you on Sunday's AM Joy. 🙂
Mary Trump is my hero. Did she get these documents just this week after the lawsuit was filed? In that case, brilliant, but also brilliant for the NYT to work that hard getting the story out.
Greetings from the South!
Trump voters in a nutshell, via local reporter Josh Moon. They really cannot be saved:
A reminder that to the media in 2016, lies about emails mattered more than the truth about fraud and treason. How are they doing in 2020? Not much better, for the most part.
The headlines are definitely not good news for Trump. I especially like the way Kevin Drum has distilled it to a simple story, complete with a graph. https://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2020/09/donald-trump-has-been-losing-money-every-year-since-2012/
Has this story died? We’re trumps debate antics an effort to push this off of the front page?
The local Sinclair channel website covered this by featuring a locally authored defense of tax loopholes prominently and made one scroll down to find the Jill Colvin AP piece about the NYTimes piece. In the section where it ran, a more prominently featured AP story about the US shipping out more test kits was accompanied by the all too familiar Trump-at-the-lecturn shot. A better choice, in terms of value, would be just to bookmark/favorite the AP website.
The same paper that is now getting accolades about their expose of Trump's tax cheating is the same paper that conspired with BreitFART to publish the libelous "Clinton Cash" book in 2016.
They also gladly published lie after lie about Hunter Biden and Burisma earlier this year.
It's the same paper that endlessly lied about Hillary's e-mails in 2016 and gave Trump pass after pass.
Too little from the Times and too late but then that is precisely what I expect from that corporate propaganda rag.
Bottle Rockets thank you for including "Dog" in Fun Stuff.
