The Lancet precisely diagnosed America's psychosis.

The Trump administration's further erosion of the CDC will harm global cooperation in science and public health, as it is trying to do by defunding WHO. A strong CDC is needed to respond to public health threats, both domestic and international, and to help prevent the next inevitable pandemic. Americans must put a president in the White House come January, 2021, who will understand that public health should not be guided by partisan politics.

"Lock her up" means "Heil Trump"

"Obamagate" and "Lock her up": Pointing the way toward "Heil Trump"

It’s not just a chant at Trump's rallies or lame wordplay in his tweets. It’s his call to fascist rule

By Lucian K. Truscott IV
Salon, May 16, 2020


There is a perfect symmetry to the involvement of Michael Flynn in Trump's latest attempt to deflect attention from his inept handling of the coronavirus crisis, which has caused the infections of more than 1.4 million Americans and the deaths of more than 87,000 nationwide. Flynn enjoyed a singular distinction during the transition between the Obama and Trump administrations, besides his coziness with Russian bankers and ambassadors. Obama gave Trump only one piece of personal advice during their private meeting in the White House after Trump was elected: Whatever you do, don't hire Michael Flynn. For anything. Ever.

But Trump loved Flynn. It had been Flynn who led the delegates at the 2016 Republican National Convention in chanting "lock her up" after mentioning the alleged criminal behavior of Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. As with Trump's use of "Obamagate" as a shorthand for Obama's alleged corruption while in office, Flynn's allegations against Clinton were equally vague and shorn of specificity. Trump had already been encouraging his crowds to chant "lock her up" at his campaign rallies in 2016, and has continued the practice ever since. I don't know of a single rally Trump has held since he's been in office when the crowd didn't break into the "lock her up" chant, with Trump allowing the fascist bellowing to wash over him as he stands at the podium, smiling with approval at the crowd.



The Compassion of Donald J Trump

Donald Trump Shared a Hilarious Story About Not Wanting to Help a Dying Man

"He was right in front of me, and I turned away. I didn’t want to touch him."

GQ, September 28, 2017


Once upon a time, Trump explained matter-of-factly, he was hosting a charity ball at Mar-a-Lago at which several members of the Marine Corps were in attendance, along with a host of rich people "eager to get their picture in the Palm Beach Post," as he put it. Lo and behold, at some point during the evening, an 80-year-old man—"very wealthy," Trump adds, but also, "a lot of people didn't like him"—fell off the stage and hit his head. Trump thought the man had died. "And you know what I did?"


I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s disgusting,’ and I turned away. I couldn’t—you know, he was right in front of me, and I turned away. I didn’t want to touch him.

As Stern and company yukked it up at this expertly-delivered punchline, Trump continued.

He’s bleeding all over the place, I felt terrible. You know, beautiful marble floor, didn’t look like it. It changed color. Became very red.

If you overheard a stranger on the bus saying these things aloud, you'd be wondering if you had stumbled upon the Law and Order: SVU set while they film the standard opening vignette that prompts a concerned bystander to summon Benson and Stabler to the scene.

And you have this poor guy, eighty years old, laying on the floor unconscious, and all the rich people are turning away. ‘Oh my God! This is terrible! This is disgusting!’ And you know, they’re turning away. Nobody wants to help the guy. His wife is screaming—she’s sitting right next to him, and she’s screaming.”



Says a lot when 200,000 lives don't mean shit to GOP

Thanks a lot, Putin. You too, Barr.

"We came with fees for all mankind."

Can’t wait.

Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez are the BEST IN THE BUSINESS.

All they’ve done throughout their 24-year professional lives together with their team is tell the truth.

Sometimes, what they report ticks me off, but I know it’s what they found.

Truth, the antidote for what we’re living:


I DON'T want one.

Wouldn’t have thought it, but that’s “heads”...

Trump destroying America for re-election.

That is NAZI.


More NAZI:

Our health care system compares to NAZI,
favoring the select few.

Our economy compares to NAZI,
favoring the few wealthy.

Our justice system compares to NAZI,
favoring those connected to the supreme corrupt figurehead.

Our future seems NAZI,
unless we do something about it.

Trump sez huge opportunities in NK, an "economic powerhouse"

The reality:

... “Kim Jong-un’s authoritarian regime has been classified as the world’s most perilous investment destination for business,” Verisk Maplecroft said in a report published before the talks began.


Perhaps a short-fingered short-seller might make a buck.

Outstanding selection of processed meats, bleach...

... & truth.
