Donald Trump has shifted his domicile from New York City to Florida.

It’s as if a Superfund site just moved south.

The move does lay the groundwork for post-Presidency criminality. Mob often retired to Florida.

Trump is echt Queens, though. Everything about him says ash heap.

The good news: Rudy ain’t going’ nowheres.

Bern’s relaunch with AOC went unnoticed due to the sturm over Tulsi’s twitter beef with HRC.

Bern will never be the Democratic nominee, so Joe Manchin will never have to vote against him anyway.

With the tragedy of Deadspin following so close on the heels of the demise of Splinternews, we are nearer to reaching the crisis of which Marx wrote.

I’m surprised Bern isn’t fundraising off the suffering of Deadspin ex-staff. $2.70

A teacher in North Carolina is under fire for separating students by religion.

What I want to know is where did the rational students sit?

Impeachment is like Christmas Day for news networks.

Paula White’s criminality precedes her.

A cat is a loaded weapon.

Candy corn is the resistance of Halloween treats.

And that’s saying a lot

Rudy gonna spend what’s left of his graveyard years in Ossining, NY.

Keebler endorses Jeff Sessions.

The GOP have abandoned the rule of law. It will continue until the electorate chucks them.

Sad to see the newbie Minnesota Congressperson coddle the Erdogan dictatorship/caliphate.

Incels are susceptible to Ayn Rand for libidinal reasons and Steve Bannon took advantage of that.

Bern, and Warren somewhat, are riding their “crisis theory” for all it is worth. After the chaos and illegality of Trump, voters seem to seek the return to a boring, legitimate presidency, which is not represented by rhetoric of “revolution” or the disruption M4A would entail.

Why do reporters incessantly retweet and hype each other?

Allegretto leggiermente

Everyone is watching the debate to see if Tulsi Gabbard speaks in Russian.

Harold Bloom no longer matters. He lost the war over “the canon.”

Jeet Heer managed to complete and tweet his senior thesis on Bloom, The Joker, Scorsese, and castration anxiety.

Even Michael Corleone testified in open Senate session.

Man up, Don Giuliani.

According to Jacobin magazine, Trump’s noble savages are not really responsible for Trumpism, only the super elite. And Obama.

Their “progressive views” on the economy apparently include racist views about racial/ethnic minorities and foreigners.

Compared to the Trump Crime Family’s business dealings at home and abroad, Hunter Biden is a paragon of virtuous entrepreneurial behavior.

The chav Eggsy is the prototype for Trump’s MAGAts.

Many parole violations would have occurred had Trump maintained accurate White House visitor logs.

Colleges are not job training centers.

Your savior

It’s telling that Trump has to hold his Rolling Nuremberg Rallies in deep red states which he should have no problem holding.

The Biden-Ukraine conspiracy theory came from Ken Vogel and friends at the NY Times.

33 years ago Rudy was as mob connected as he is today.

I don’t want Manafort or Flynn to have the right to vote.

Militant secularism (as per William Barr), also known as Enlightenment and cultural progress.

An evangelical christian is born every minute. – P T Barnum.

The biggest flaw in mainstream economics is the model of rational action, which, ironically, is shared by Marxist economics.

Today’s progressives are, unfortunately, populists.

Ryan Lizza is the new Mark Halperin.

Rick Perry is proof that eyeglasses don’t make one smarter.

Crawl away

It’s time for a second Great Migration out of the Jane Crow south.

Trump’s Traveling Nuremberg Rally moves to the Lincoln Memorial for July 4th. Making the Lincoln Memorial a “no go zone.”

Trump stokes the lumpens’ cultural ressentiment and class envy of their betters for his own benefit.

His mob lawyer cancelled his trip to Ukraine.

Someone should tell Chelsea Manning there’s no point in covering for Assange any longer.

Outrage is the dominant cultural mood. Or at least one or two candidates think it is and seek to capitalize on it.

Bernie is not a contender in any southern state. Nonetheless, his 30+ point deficit to Biden in South Carolina shows the significant damage that has been inflicted on his campaign.

The morning sad

A nice Watergate-style break-in at the IRS might work.

Mother Pence only tithes to God.

What’s with the circuses (Zizek and the alt-right Canuck, Gay and Hoff Sommers)? Just because Twain did it doesn’t make it right.

How much dosh did Zizek make for his performance art sketch?

Bernie is an establishment candidate now (Warren is the insurgent) and Warren has a gender disadvantage.

Warren offers specifics and feasible solutions. Bernie offers utopian critique and egotism.

“Easter worshippers” apparently prefer to be called “Easter fetishists.”

Rudy Giuliani’s incredibly disappearing neck is a thing of wonder.

If Satan had a daughter, she would be Sarah Sanders.

Heart full of scroll

Some people say Arendt’s concept of totalitarianism doesn’t apply to Trump. Maybe not. But Trump is comparable to other modern dictators (i.e., Erdogan, Putin, Duterte, etc.). Mussolini is an obvious model for Trump.

As Jimmy Breslin once described Rudy Giuliani: “A small man in search of a balcony.”

When the economic and cultural conditions underpinning masculine domination decay, one winds up with Trump.

Reading and writing occur in a place of silence, of solitude. What refuses to be silent is the mass media, which profits from giving a platform to extremist politics.

Calvin’s doctrine of predestination demonstrated more theological courage than Luther, whose sola fide is merely a continuation of the Church’s “magical means of salvation” by other means (as per Weber).

Luther is a hero only if one skips over the antisemitism.
