I like how quickly the GOP can declare "enough" when it's their boy being investigated. How long did Benghazi go on for? How long did the email server investigation go on for? But only TWO months after fuckwad dickhead enlists the Russians (remember? He actually INVITED russia to hack Hillary) to help him win a tight race repubtards are decrying ANY investigation and already declaring everyone's innocence.
The nature of ties between Trump's associates and Russia has dogged him throughout his nascent presidency, and Monday brought renewed calls for a special prosecutor to investigate the unusual situation. Federal investigators have been looking into contacts between Trump advisers and Russia for months, along with Russia's role in political hacking during the campaign aimed at Democrats. [..] Speaking to reporters Monday, Nunes - a member of Trump's presidential transition team - said Congress should not begin a McCarthy-style investigation based on news reports that a few Americans with ties to Trump had contacted Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign. (AP)
Yes, a "witch hunt" would be totally unfair, because if tRump affiliated staff HAD talked to the Ruskies (which they already have admitted to doing) BEFORE he took office and indeed, if they HAD enlisted their support to attack a presidential candidate THEN that would clearly be both illegal AND fucking treasonous.
But hey, it's ok to pursue Hillary for years over non-evidence but when there are actual admissions of guilt AND a presidential election involved, well there's clearly no reason to investigate anyone over anything. No really, nothing to see here. Stop looking. Quit asking. Also the press lies. Everyone lies. Pictures lie. Evil women lie. And they're all witches anyway. Who want to attack the true and rightful heir to the amerikan throne.
Actually, some of that IS true.
Most of Donald Trump's opponents believe they will have to wait four more years to see him leave the White House.
But America's witches are more optimistic.
At the stroke of midnight on Friday, followers of witchcraft across the US performed a mass spell designed to stop the president doing harm.
A Facebook group devoted to the ritual has attracted over 10,500 likes, and coined the hashtag #magicresistance. (BBC)
So the witches are striking back, to which I have to add "and bully for them!" Whatever works for you, and us, well... why the hell not eh?
Because let me tell ya, we've only just got started on this shit...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump unloaded on the news media Friday for using anonymous sources - just hours after members of his own staff insisted on briefing reporters only on condition their names be concealed.
So which is it Dickhead? Only the president can tell reporters when to use anonymous sources? But reporters can't decide for themselves? SINCE WHEN DOES FREE SPEECH ONLY APPLY TO THE WHITE HOUSE?
Of course, when you're a lying, greed-bag you HAVE to protect your "sources" because it makes it that much harder to dispute the facts. Then again, you can just ORDER agencies to lie FOR you. Too bad some of those agencies have higher moral standards.
The White House has confirmed it asked an FBI official to discredit reports President Trump's campaign aides were in touch with Russian intelligence. (BBC)
So anything Dicktater Donald doesn't like is clearly a lie. Anything that he agrees with is the truth. Fuck evidence and facts.
I'm sorry isn't that the very definition of a sociopath?
I love watching the "not going to affect me" excuse getting raped again and again.
The officers blocked the exits on Delta Flight 1583 just after it landed at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City, inspecting every passenger's documentation before allowing them to deplane.
The agency said it was working with U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement to locate an individual whose name they had, but not a picture. (UPI)
Mmmhmm. Wonder if there were any tRump voters on that plane. In fact I wish EVERY person on that plane, eager to get off after a half-day flight, was a tRump voter. One that said "nope, voting for this maniac won't affect me."
But hey, this is coming soon to an airport near you!

On Thursday, the former Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords weighed in, after Texas representative Louie Gohmert cited her shooting at a 2011 outdoor political meeting as a reason for not appearing in person.
Ms Giffords tweeted: "To the politicians who have abandoned their civic obligations, I say this: Have some courage. Face your constituents. Hold town halls.
"I was shot on a Saturday morning. By Monday morning my offices were open to the public." (BBC)
Gabrielle Giffords, with more courage and more balls than a Texas rep.
NRA has a message for Trump supporters: "it's ok to shoot anyone that disagrees with you."
The head of the National Rifle Association says conservatives should stand up for themselves if "the violent left brings their terror into our communities."
Wayne LaPierre spoke Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he showed videos of violent protesters. He asked the crowd if they were ready to take on the left.
LaPierre said: "Show them you won't submit. We will not be intimidated."
He says members of the NRA helped President Donald Trump win the election, that "Americans wanted a fire, and we got one."
He also argues the media is a threat, saying, "You're not going to win, and you will not defeat us."(AP)
So, it's not about the right to bear arms to overthrow the government, it's to ENFORCE government views on those who disagree. Put another way it's a declaration of war against the majority who voted against an evil, lying, psychotic, sack of shit. And anyone who dares protest, who considers using the same angry rhetoric that made the Tea Party Fuckwads so popular are now targets because tRump won.
It's not hard to understand why Dickhead Donald is now one of the least popular presidents in American history, with douche nozzles like this one agitating an already divided nation to further violence. This is the vision of an america for "all people"? No, it's a vision of armed-mob anarchy, something we're sliding towards with so much speed it's frightening.
Women around the nation are standing up and taking the threat of a misogynistic, asshole president (and his misogynistic, asshole staff) seriously. For some men it's too much that women might DARE to throw the shit right back at them. Tiny men, with very tiny balls apparently. It's great when they self-identify by crying about how offended they are in public.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Texas Republican said Thursday he was deeply disturbed by explicit signs at the Women's March on Washington last month while acknowledging that President Donald Trump's vulgar and sexually predatory comments about women triggered the display.[..] "There was a taint to that march that just cut me to the core," [Rep. Mike] Conaway said at an Agriculture Department event. "Women carrying signs and wearing costumes in the foulest, nastiest, crudest, crassest manner possible, talking about female body parts."
Awww did those nasty women scare widdle you Mikey? Shouting slogans and waving signs about how the GOVERNMENT SHOULD STAY THE FUCK OUT OF WOMEN'S BODIES? How about that eh? Don't you support free speech? Don't you support personal privacy? Don't you support smaller government? Just because you don't have a uterus and can't get pregnant (actually science is working on fixing that, the embryo can apparently attach to the large intestine but I digress) means that you couldn't GIVE a flying fuck about what a forced pregnancy does to a woman, her life and her future because it's all about the babies (who, when born, you couldn't give a fuck about again.)
Yep, because America is both religious and moral. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA. That's so hard to say with a straight face with a total douchetard as a president. And you know, I'm not alone in my fury, there are tons of men and women around this nation who are freely expressing the anger and hate that was once reserved for the hard right. Yes, all the shit that was slung at Obama and the "libtards" is now being slung right back with a fury that is taking conservatives by surprise. GUESS WHAT FUCKERS, YOU DIDN'T INVENT HATE, YOU JUST SHOWED THE REST OF US HOW EFFECTIVE IT IS.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- So many women showed up at a Minneapolis tattoo parlor for a permanent reminder of female solidarity that it had to turn away some latecomers.
Local women Chelsea Brink, Nora McInerny and Kate O'Reilly organized a fundraiser in which people could get a tattoo of the words "Nevertheless, she persisted," for $75, Minnesota Public Radio reported (http://bit.ly/2mboEBm ). Proceeds will go toward Women Winning, a group dedicated to boosting representation of pro-choice women at all levels of political office.[..]
Their tattoos reference a phrase that Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell said about Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who was formally silenced on the Senate floor earlier this month for reading a letter by Coretta Scott King. The words became a rallying cry for Warren's supporters and women's rights proponents.
Oh it's so unfeminine to stand up and act like a MAN, so horrible for the "embrace-all" liberals to go from defense to attack, so unfair that the same rhetoric that was used against the prior administration is now being used in force against the new one.
Shoe's on the other foot bitches... and guess what, those stilettos can take out an eye if you don't duck in time.
Ms Conway also criticised the Women's March, saying: "It turns out a lot of women don't like women in power". (BBC)
It's hard to believe there are adult humans as stupid as you Cunty Kelly, but I'm guessing that "brains" wasn't a criteria in landing the job you have now.
Goddamn you're one stupid slut.
Gotta love this guy, he's waaaay too busy for work.
"I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf," - Dickhead Donald ranting about how Obama played golf during his tenure.
And then the reality where Asshole can find the time to do anything he wants, that's fun of course, and paying attention to matters about running the nation clearly aren't in that list.
So here we have the tRump presidency in a nutshell: Pence will do all the hard work and decision making, Dickhead Donald will basically act as if he were king, parading around, taking other heads of state for fancy dinners at places he owns, holding more rallies, and pretty much not doing a damned thing other than tweeting about who pissed him off recently.
Great job voters! It sure is different, not better, but different. And that's what you wanted right?
It's a neat trick: how do you separate a man from his money and his freedom? Answer: convince him that he's better off without them. Alternatively; ensure that he perceives his enslavement as liberty.
Samuel Delaney naturally said it better...
Convince a slave that he is free, and he will fight to maintain his slavery
The GOP used this principle well, but tRumpsterfuck schooled them in it. Dickhead Donald made both empty and obviously bogus promises and idiots ate it up. Making the US safe by building a wall to keep people out or keep people in? Saving women from making mistakes about their future they're obviously unqualified to make. Putting the worst of the worst in charge of American banks, resource, military and education and slapping lipstick on their porcine lips. And some people actually were willing to believe, even though I'm sure they know that Santa, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny are fabrications, they couldn't or wouldn't think long enough to realize that putting one of the richest men in charge of the nation wouldn't make them richer, safer or better off.
Yes, many voters wanted to believe so badly, wanted to belong so badly that even a poorly made fantasy sculpted by an orange faced, hate spewing, pussy-grabber seem like a godsend. Mainly because they didn't want to THINK about the reality of the situation, because the reality is hard, it takes work and most of all it takes compromise (gasp).
I wonder how long it will take for the US to recover from the raping it's taking, it's going to take. More than that I wonder if those voters will ever be able to admit they made a mistake, at least long enough to prevent it from happening again in their lifetime.
They recognized each other, instinctively.
President Donald Trump should be given a chance to prove himself, Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe says. (BBC)
That's so fucking awesome I don't know what could top it, other than Stalin maybe, giving der tRump props from the grave. Mugabe, one of the most loathsome scums ever born coming to the president's defense? Shitson, you KNOW you've hit rock bottom.
Jim's a tool. Don't purchase his services, don't give him your sympathy. This is a rich fucker who doesn't care who he hires or how they work. He doesn't care if his employees are imported, deported or reported.
More than 100 workers in the US have lost their jobs after taking part in last week's Day Without Immigrants protest, US media say.[..] Jim Serowski, of JVS Masonry in Commerce City, Colorado, said he had no regrets after sacking about 30 bricklayers. (BBC)
Yes Jim, you're a fuck bucket. I'm sure your polak ancestors are real damn proud of you.
What, might you inquire, is a "fur fucker"? Well it's just someone who fucks anything with fur to death in the most horrific manner possible, sort of like a pedophile rapist, but with animals. Basically Don is one of the most horrible humans alive.
On 76 million acres of federal refuges in Alaska, hunters will be permitted to enter dens where vulnerable bear families are hibernating and kill them if the resolution becomes law. They will also be able to shoot entire wolf families raising young pups if the Senate and President agree with the vote.[..] The overturning of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) ban would also allow hunters to lure animals with food and shoot them at point-blank range.
Now it's unclear why the push to overturn the ban was introduced in the first place, as a 2016 poll of Alaska voters showed that most agreed that those practices should be banned. Alaska's Representative Don Young (R-AK), who has trapped animals in the past, introduced the measure, known as H.J. Resolution 69, anyway. (TheDodo)
Wow Don, you're so american, so manly by enabling the most inhumane methods of hunting for NO FUCKING REASON AT ALL other than maybe "yay guns". Oddly even those who might benefit from this change are also against it, because luring animals and killing cubs isn't ANYone's definition of "sport". It's pretty just the definition of evil, kind of like luring kindergarten kids with candy and then putting them in prison for stealing. Only with death thrown in.
It's unfathomable why, when no reasonable person can defend something like this, that politicians, who must be so fucking scared of the lynch-mob society they've created, will vote for it. States rights? No, this has nothing to do with states rights, it has to do with common decency, regardless of race, color, creed, religion or political alignment.
So congratulations Don Young, for being some of the most reprehensible scumbags in the nation. Here's hoping you get eaten someday by one of those mama bears that your state is so famous for. Shitbag.
Here's an idea, why not thank the fucking SCIENTISTS that enabled you, not the "god" that didn't? Because I think "god" was trying to tell you something...
Feb. 17 (UPI) -- A Texas couple's pregnancy announcement after a long struggle with fertility issues featured their 452 IVF needles -- and two onesies for their coming twins.
Lauren Walker, 28, announced in a Facebook post, which has since gone viral, that she and her high school sweetheart, Garyt, are expecting twins after years of trying and hundreds of in-vitro fertilization treatments.[..]
"We prayed for 953 days...452 Needles, 1000's of tears, 1 corrective surgery, 4 clomid/letrozole attempts, 2 IVF rounds, 3 failed transfers and & 1 Amazing GOD," Walker wrote.
Ok see, without SCIENCE you wouldn't have gotten pregnant because SCIENCE was the ONLY thing, not your prayer, that got you pregnant. But hey, yeah, god is so fucking amazing that he invented IVF to be discovered by scientists just so you could get pregnant.
Actually you know what god REALLY wanted you do to? Fucking ADOPT.
Dickhead Donald is all about "Winning". Every time he talks about himself and what he's doing that word is in there. Of course if you're forced to go on a second round of victory tours to convince people of how "winning" you are, clearly your record isn't speaking for itself.
President Donald Trump is out of Washington for the weekend. His plans include meetings at his Mar-a-Lago estate and a campaign rally in central Florida.
On Twitter Saturday, Trump touted his "many meetings this weekend at The Southern White House" and his "big" speech in Melbourne later in the day. He added: "A lot to talk about!"
Trump is trying to regain his footing following a series of crises that have threatened his young administration. (AP)
So the whole notion that his record of "winning" would speak for itself seems to be somewhat in jeopardy. And while most presidents enjoy a honeymoon period after their election, DD's post-winning (the electoral college) period seems better characterized as a dismal-moon with chaos, defections, misinformation, misspellings and blatant lies.
Oh and let's not forget about the hate, because he's really good at the schoolyard bully tweets:
I feel sorry for Rosie 's new partner in love whose parents are devastated at the thought of their daughter being with @Rosie--a true loser.
You must admit that Bryant Gumbel is one of the dumbest racists around - an arrogant dope with no talent. Failed at CBS etc-why still on TV?
I loved beating these two terrible human beings. I would never recommend that anyone use her lawyer, he is a total loser! (DD)
That is the current president, speaking for himself in his own words. Wow, isn't he "winning"?
Because judges, being both educated and qualified, are not sufficiently ignorant to be swayed by moronic arguments.
Feb. 17 (UPI) -- In a case that could have broad legal implications for the country, the Washington state Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that a Christian florist could not use her faith to justify refusing service for a gay couple's wedding.
Lawyers for the defendant, Baronelle Stutzman, pledged they would appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The case began in 2013 in the city of Richland, Wash., when a gay couple, Robert Ingersoll and Curt Freed, contacted Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flower Shop, to provide flowers for their wedding. Though Stutzman knew the couple were gay and had sold them flowers before, she refused to do so for the nuptials, saying her Christian faith restricted marriage to between a man and a woman and participating in the ceremony would violate her religious beliefs.[..]
The justices drew on the civil rights era debate over segregated and whites-only lunch counters to rule in the couple's favor.
"[This case] is no more about access to flowers than civil rights cases in the 1960s were about access to sandwiches," the justices wrote in a 59-page decision. "Public accommodations laws do not simply guarantee access to goods or services. Instead, they serve a broader societal purpose: eradicating barriers to the equal treatment of all citizens."
So there you go, proof (and logic) positive that "religious freedom" is just a glossy coat on the steaming pile of shit that's actually called discrimination. You're a BUSINESS, not a fucking artist, you plunk flowers into a vase based on a pre-made picture that shows you how. If you choose to HAVE a business you are required to serve EVERYONE EQUALLY. Too bad you don't like how your customer looks, or what they believe in, or even whom they choose to love. TOO FUCKING BAD because you have to sell to them whether you like it or not.
Religious fucktards have been empowered and emboldened by conservatives, deluded into believing that all of the nation needs to align with their ideals and, when they don't, forced into adhering. Oddly, the courts aren't agreeing, even if politicians like to blame the judiciary for being uncontrolled and reactionary, the truth is they're only upholding the laws as they are logically and unemotionally applied. As they apply to EVERYONE, not just the people who want to be right.
I'm happy about that. And it makes me hopeful that after conservatives beat their head bloody against the law in an attempt to deny equality to the LBGT community that then maybe women will get a chance for their freedom as well. Screw conservatives, screw your hate, your tiny brains and hearts. I see a future where your rhetoric will be marginalized into the background as the noise it truly is.
You'd think that the Ruskies would know a pompous dick-tater when they met one. On the other hand... maybe they did.
It was almost as if a US presidential candidate, and subsequently a new US president, had become the golden boy of Russian politics. In January he even received more mentions in the Russian media than President Vladimir Putin.[..]
On Friday, Russia's most popular tabloid, Komsomolskaya Pravda, accused President Trump of making "contradictory" statements about Nato.
The paper points out: "(During the election campaign) Trump had called the Alliance obsolete and useless. Less than two months have passed since he moved into the Oval Office and he's already expressed full support for Nato.
"As the saying goes, you need to be drunk to understand the true position of America's president." (BBC)
Well the Ruskies won the first round, they helped elect a total imbecile to the highest possible office. But they certainly figured out quickly that trust isn't a word in Dickhead Donald's limited vocabulary. What's more entertaining is watching those who actually THOUGHT DD might support them because they supported him. Uh..... newp.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Though Donald Trump fashions himself a loyal boss, his inner circle has been steadily shrinking - revealing Trump's willingness to cast aside some of his most devoted advisers.
Yeah, DD treats people like toilet paper, one wipe and he's done with them. Loyalty to him only goes in one direction. But what do you expect from a certified psychopath.
So back to the Ruskies, I'm sure they're laughing their ass off. They managed to eliminate the qualified candidate who MIGHT have actually impeded their progress and feed the moronic-voting-masses a complete and total failure. AND get a full makeover in the process. Really the GOP loving the Red-threat? Yes, really. They're our buddies because DD says so.
At least for now.
