On a serious note, Leninists historically tend to be anti-sex, anti-pleasure.

The Impeachniki are funny in their growing hysteria. Pelosi is smarter than all of them.

If NY State has its way, Trump’s money will only be safe in the Iranian national bank.

US and Iran are panto enemies. The “GREAT SATAN” versus the “TERRORIST STATE”. Each side benefits from the existence of the other. They deserve each other.

Trump means treason in Ukrainian.

“Neoliberal” captures all the Evil in the world: racism, sexism, fascism, heterosexism, classism, etc. It’s the Swiss army knife of woke critique.

In reality, it is really, really, super-late capitalism.

In a few billion years, when the sun expands during its own death throes, the Earth will be a burnt rock and, eventually, it will be consumed by the sun.

Hear about it later

The “Trump the Peacemaker” narrative from the anti-HRC front is evergreen.

John Bolton is from the Neocon/New American Centurions set that dominated GW Bush’s foreign policy (under Darth Cheney). While extremely dangerous, the NAC were not religious whack jobs like Pompeo and others who surround Trump now (under Mike Pence).

Pompeo believes in The Rapture.

Bolton believes in military adventurism.

Trump is the messiah for uneducated men.

If alt right incels claim paddington bear, does that make the fictional bear political?

Anti-Biden mania is peaking. It’s a true test of political pundit power.

Re Felicity Huffman: the professional outragetariat are overjoyed — she’s going to the pokey — and appalled — only for 14 days — at the same time.

Takt

Working the impeachment beat must be extremely frustrating for journalists, especially if one acts as if Pelosi doesn’t exist.

Re Dorian and Alabama: Trump is rolling around in his own scat.

Oh Moon of Alabama
We now must say goodbye
We’ve lost our good old mama
And must have whisky, oh, you know why.

A sharpie and a dull brain make nonsense.

Trump’s dementia undermines whatever credibility he had with pundits and Susan Sarandon.

Why are intelligent people responding to the natterings of a man afflicted with dementia praecox?

WaPo has taken possession of what’s left of Donald Trump’s mind.

Dorian, et. al target climate change denying states. The Wrath of God, natural selection, or Die List der Vernunft?

Million Dollar Man

Trump’s cash for farm votes program was bound to be another one of his scams.

Tyler Skaggs (alcohol, fentanyl and oxy), Roy Halladay (amphetamines, morphine, Ambien, alcohol), and José Fernández (alcohol and cocaine). Notice a pattern?

The title Twilight of the Elites may suffer the same fate as The End of Ideology and The End of History and the Last Man.

It was difficult for Andrew Luck to walk away from professional toxic masculinity and all its entitlements.

Urban & rural poor males will always gravitate towards headbanging sports like American football and rugby; especially football, with enticements of toxic masculinity, college scholarships, NFL millions (NB people forget Kaepernick is a multimillionaire), and glamour (see Ballers).

For Bern, those who fail to support him are kulaks.

… like a girl

USWNT win the World Cup.

🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐

It was brilliant to schedule the Gold Cup Final on the same day as the World Cup in France. It illustrates the gap between the American men and women. If anything, it shows the American men should be paid less than the American women.

Neoliberalism and the establishment media hold back the US men’s team.

Cory Booker is more sorry that he’s polling at 1%-3%

Booker just realized he can no longer ride Harris’ coattails on the busing issue. He’s likely more disturbed by the fact that his poll numbers remain as low as they were before he chimed in.

I love Bern’s email blasts, full of desperate pleading and seething with resentment. I think he and his team know his revolution is quixotic, and that his nomination hopes lack any basis in political reality.

Tsipras was schooled by Merkel and played by Varoufakis. Now he’s out of power.

Pelosi has been chewing up and spitting out political newbies like AOC for years.

AOC is a Perónista. Go figure.

The only thing missing from Trump’s militaristic Fourth of July was Leni Riefenstahl.
