Rachel Maddow: Alito drops pretense of impartiality, delivers political remarks

https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/alito-drops-pretense-impartiality-delivers-political-remarks-n1247700

"Alito abandoned any pretense of impartiality in his speech, a grievance-laden tirade against Democrats, the progressive movement, and the United States' response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Alito's targets included COVID-related restrictions, same-sex marriage, abortion, Plan B, the contraceptive mandate, LGBTQ non-discrimination laws, and five sitting Democratic senators.... Flouting his ethical obligations, Alito waded into fierce political debates over public health during a pandemic, reproductive rights, LGBTQ equality, and other issues that routinely come before his court."


Alito showing his true colors, is just another conservative republican hack. We need a review and rebalancing of our entire court system.

Any progressive gun clubs in NEO?

Thanks.

Public Banking

Snip ~
"The Public Banking Institute has been working since 2011 to return control of money and credit to states and communities and create a network of publicly-owned federal, state and municipal banks that would establish a safe, low-cost alternative to the current exploitative financial system controlled by Wall Street. Our Board and Advisory Board members include noted economists, bankers, professors, authors, and organizational leaders. Our letter outlines four immediate actions needed to rescue the Main Street economy following the coronavirus shutdowns and ensuing financial collapse and shows how they can be done without imposing additional taxes or driving up consumer prices."

How to use public banks to help us in this crisis.

Life Coaching for Trumpers

This was way too good not to share.

by Rich Herschlag

"This is known as quid pro quo parenting."

As the impeachment show trial presses onward and continues to infect your mind with falsehoods corroborated only by the testimony of a dozen or more highly decorated lifelong bipartisan public servants, hundreds of subpoenaed documents, and a summary transcript provided by the White House itself, it is important not only that you remain resolute in clinging to a series of hopelessly muddled rightwing talking points and ever-shifting dark web conspiracy theories, but that you make every effort to shed all forms of brainwashing disseminated by the left—and by the left we mean anyone less bigoted than Stephen Miller.

This includes cleansing yourself of all misinformation from the left-leaning media, public school systems, libraries, the medical community, various episodes of NOVA, and that deceased but relentless communist pediatrician known in certain circles as Dr. Spock. Only with this sort of all-encompassing reorientation can we become truly great Americans worthy of the grace raining down so freely from our beloved leader and thus ensure Donald J. Trump will remain in office long enough to replace Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor with one of Rudy Giuliani’s illegitimate children.

For starters, cigarettes don’t cause cancer. That is hoax perpetrated by George Soros. In fact, cigarettes cure cancer. So if you are diagnosed with cancer—especially lung cancer—keep smoking. Light up the moment the first nodule appears on your CT scan. Smoke in the shower. Smoke in bed. Smoke during chemo. Don’t be discouraged when you can no longer fully inhale. That’s the liberals trying to steal your freedom. Remember, only cigarettes can help you, and your health is too important to surrender to fake science.

If you are diagnosed with arteriosclerosis, that is God telling you to triple your daily intake of low-density cholesterol and saturated fat. Low-fat diets are fake science pushed by Michael Moore and part of a cabal to turn your state purplish. Only a steady regimen of Krispy Kreme donuts and cheese crust pizza with pork sausage can give you the cardiopulmonary system of a 21-year-old skinhead again. And whatever you do, don’t engage in any form of vigorous activity other than sitting on your porch and shouting slurs at people of color.

Relationships are important, and that is why you need to dominate all of yours. If your significant other is a woman, please note—she does not want to be heard. That is a scam perpetrated by Hillary Clinton, Oprah, Dear Abby, Dr. Phil, and Joy Behar. Women want to be told what to think, and the best way to achieve that is to cut them off mid-sentence and complete the thought with whatever gibberish pops into your head after a night of shooting possum and masturbating.

Your children are not to be trusted. You were a little shit, and so are they. Daughters seek an emotional Spanish Inquisition every time they leave the house to update their phone plan and are especially fond of any and all insinuations that they are whoring around. Sons require constant questioning and testing of their manhood, whether that means your subtly implied disappointment with their physical prowess and life choices or a random shot upside the head. It is critical that these things be accomplished in part by withholding love and affection. This is known as quid pro quo parenting.

The opioid crisis is yet another ruse foisted upon an unsuspecting public by Rachel Maddow, Black Lives Matter, and the American Medical Association. We personally guarantee you that all opioid related deaths were hot doses sold to our children by Democratic electoral college delegates, Hollywood plastic surgeons, and a newly resurgent Medellín cartel. Opioids marketed by supporters of Donald J. Trump are perfect and can be ingested in unlimited quantities with no known side effects.

Nuclear waste is not waste at all. It is sustenance and can be used by true Americans for energy in much the same way Popeye the Sailor uses spinach. Go ahead—open a can of spent Plutonium-239, suck it down like a 12-oz Gatorade and trust me, you’ll be doing the nasty with Olive Oyl before you can say Devin Nunes met with an ex-Ukraine official to get dirt on Hunter Biden.

Drain the swamp. Run toward tornados. Surf in tsunamis. Do the Funky Chicken in a hail of bullets. Overthrow the deep state.

Last but not least, there is the most outrageous sham of all—gravity. This was brought to you by the very same people who still insist the earth is round and Colin Kaepernick. If you really want to support your president and stick it to Elizabeth Warren, you will put on a MAGA hat, find the highest bridge in your neck of the woods, and take a flying leap. Good luck, and see you on November 3, 2020.

US nuclear weapons are now being held as 'essentially Erdogan's hostages' in Turkey: report

https://www.alternet.org/2019/10/u-s-nuclear-weapons-are-now-being-held-as-essentially-erdogans-hostages-in-turkey-report/

Those weapons, one senior official said, were now essentially Erdogan’s hostages. To fly them out of Incirlik would be to mark the de facto end of the Turkish-American alliance. To keep them there, though, is to perpetuate a nuclear vulnerability that should have been eliminated years ago.

“I think this is a first — a country with U.S. nuclear weapons stationed in it literally firing artillery at US forces,” Jeffrey Lewis of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies wrote last week.

For his part, Mr. Erdogan claims nuclear ambitions of his own: Only a month ago, speaking to supporters, he said he “cannot accept” rules that keep Turkey from possessing nuclear weapons of its own.

I'm still letting that sink in.

As the scandal intensifies, Team Trump turns to Jedi mind tricks

http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/the-scandal-intensifies-team-trump-turns-jedi-mind-tricks?cid=eml_mra_20191014

As Donald Trump’s impeachment becomes even more likely, the president and his allies have been even more eager than usual to concoct an alternate reality they expect the public to take seriously. In this version of reality, adjacent to our own, the intelligence community’s whistleblower has been completely discredited.

That’s plainly false, of course, as the White House and its cohorts know, though the truth has been deemed secondary. It’s why Trump is also throwing around all kinds of related nonsense about Joe Biden, Adam Schiff, and what the president sees as Russia’s purported innocence in its 2016 attack on our elections.

Trump and his team seem to realize a reality-based approach wouldn’t work, and the result is an avalanche of claims that crumble under scrutiny.

Truth.
