Nancy Pelosi is Here to Smash Everything to Hell




I’m on board the Nancy Pelosi train, if only because I love what she does to drive Republicans crazy. She outwitted everyone they threw against her and she is, truly, one of the least appreciated Democratic heroes of the last twenty years.

And if Nancy wants to expose Brett Kavanaugh’s dirty laundry, more power to her:

House of Representatives Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced in a Sunday press release that she has filed a FOIA, or a public records request, for the FBI’s report on the sexual assault allegations leveled against newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Pelosi began her release by writing that Kavanaugh’s confirmation “has wounded the very soul of justice in our country” and commending the “dignity and bravery” of Christine Blasey Ford. “To preserve the full record of this dark chapter,” she continued, “I am filing a FOIA request so the public can see the FBI report, transcripts of interviews, instructions from the White House, and any communications to the FBI from Senate Republicans regarding the scope of the investigation. This is important to set the record straight.” So far, the contents of the report have only been made available to members of the U.S. Senate, and even they could only read the report from within the confines of a sensitive compartmented information facility. This information could resolve controversy over the depth of the investigation and the limits allegedly placed on the FBI by the White House, which Senate Democrats claimed jeopardized the integrity of Kavanaugh’s nomination.

This gives everyone the FBI refused to talk to a way to check what was done and fill in their own information. You think there isn’t a good chance someone isn’t going to fill in the blanks and show how badly the GOP wanted to keep the American people from knowing what a douchebag Kavanaugh is? That’s what they’re afraid of. They know the truth it out there, and they know they had to work overtime to shine the massive turd that is his personal background in order to drag him across the finish line and put him on the court.

Yeah, I’m not getting over this anytime soon, and neither should you. Putting Kavanaugh on the court when you have 51 Senators and the stray Joe Manchin out there to bail you out wasn’t a victory—it was what you were supposed to do all along. That’s why Democrats better start winning elections or this country is going to slide further into madness.

And what I really want the FBI to tell us one day is who owns Kavanaugh? Who paid his debts? Who has blackmail material against him? Did former Justice Anthony Kennedy help with the rehabilitation of Kavanaugh’s finances and reputation? Seems like someone ought to be given the chance to research that and write a story about it.

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…
