Stop Normalizing Horrible People




The Washington Post is out with a big story about Kellyanne and George Conway, and it is how people who engage in terrible behavior in the public sphere end up being normalized and accepted. This story is written for a select few who are concerned that, when the Trump Regime is driven from power, it might be impossible for Kellyanne to make a living. You can see that in the language that people use when discussing current Trump supporters and former associates. They are to be shunned, you see, and someone wants to trade a little access for the favor of letting the Conways continue to work their schemes and collect their fees.

Few Americans really know these people or care about them, but they are leftovers from the 1990s and the demonization of the Clintons. They are liars and grifters, and it doesn't matter if one of them supports Trump and one of them doesn't--flip their loyalties around, and they'll just find a way to sell themselves to someone else and make a living.

These articles are garbage, but they feed a machine that the Washington Post needs. Trade a little access, normalize some vicious scum, and watch how CNN finds a way to give Kellyanne a job in three years time, commenting on Democrats and whomever else.

This is a garbage article, filled with just enough to keep the Beltway crowd interested. Our political systems and the institutions that our elites are supposed to protect are a complete and utter shit sandwich and these people want to play games with people's lives. What a horror show.

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
