Decades of Disgrace With Kavanaugh- Collins Soils Her Legacy.

Alleged rapist Brett Kavanaugh got a big step closer to confirmation today.

It sickens me to even have to write this. Can’t we do better? Is a drunken slob like this really the best that America can offer its highest seats of jurisprudence? What implication does that have for our country?

These questions lack satisfactory answers completely.

Where are we going with this? That is what I’d like to ask Flake and the others this week who allowed that whitewashed FBI investigation to self-delude about a decision of such monumental import.

The FBI didn’t talk to Kavanaugh or his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, and the Trump administration refused to even let them discuss Julie Swetnick, the third accuser.

They even ignored the testimony of Kenneth Appold, one of the most respected theological professors in the nation who said he could personally corroborate that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted Deborah Ramirez in high school. That “investigation” was a total sham. It was a sick joke. It reminded me of a dying goldfish I had as a little kid.

Don’t they see? If things keep along the way they are, the progress made in the last one hundred years will be lost. We’ll be right back in the good ol’ boy days, the days of cronyism and graft and corruption.

And then I remember- That’s exactly what they want.

I’m good and disgusted this morning. I keep seeing the twisted up rage in the face of the whiner Kavanaugh, threatening and storming, screaming up the 40-year-old Virgin defense. He looked like a cartoon character of somebody sniveling.

I compare that with the dignity on the face of Christine Blasey Ford, who risked every aspect of her safe and quiet life to get up there on that podium and tell that humiliating story. Who wants to be a victim?

The people who go around spouting that “false accusation, men are the victims” lie always manage to leave that part out. It’s a miserable, embarrassing thing to have someone come along and do unto you. Nobody wants to think of themselves that way.

This was not a person likely to be bought off; if she was, the Republicans would have outbid us anyway. They would have paid anything to jam that guy through. The only hope we had was that some decency would rise up in the hearts of a few of the Republicans, and in one case, it did.

Lisa Murkowski of Alaska voted no, and Susan Collins has still yet to declare officially, we’re waiting on that to come through in an hour. But he passed this hurdle, and there’s no mistaking it.

Regarding the lone Democratic yes, that of West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, even if he had voted no, Mike Pence would have broken the tie. It would not have slowed down Kavanaugh’s path to confirmation at all, and it would probably have cost Manchin his bid for reelection. He’s currently beating his primary opponent,

If the opportunity opens for Joe to use his vote to stop Kavanaugh, he will do it, and all true Democrats know this. If it doesn’t, then who cares who he voted for? Usually, only purists from the far left who live in progressive states. Easy for them to say. Red-state pragmatism is necessary. In the end he’s one of us.

We have seen this kind of thing before. It’s all an eerie repeat of 1992, and the Anita Hill hearings on Capitol Hill. Again, it was because the Republicans were trying to force a loathsome sex offender, Clarence Thomas(who has used his power to make one ruling in the last twelve years, shortly after media publicity revealed that he had not bothered to do so in ten years) down our throats and onto the Supreme Court bench.

Going forward, it’s important to remember that cloture is not the same as confirmation. We still have hope of a last minute change of heart, and even if he’s confirmed ultimately, it’s still not the end of the world. It’s just really disgusting. The fight was still worth it. We’re thirty-two days from the election, and this whole ordeal has empowered the Blue Wave beyond anything we have seen so far. 1992 saw Thomas get in, regardless of what he had done to Hill, but it saw a few other things also.

Televised images of a committee, composed exclusively of white males, sharply questioning African-American law professor Anita Hill disturbed many women, and of a sudden, they became galvanized en masse. It became known as the Year of the Woman.

Not long after, on January 3, 1993, for the first time in American history, California became the first state in the nation to be represented in the Senate by two women- Barbara Boxer, and Dianne Feinstein, who of course was the one to blow the whistle on Kavanaugh in today’s saga.

History repeats itself constantly, and the events of the 1980’s and 90’s have played an odd role in all this, with the sitcom stars and professional wrestling videos, and all the rest of it. If the past is any indication, the Year of the Democratic Woman, 2018, is going to crash into the Republicans with the force of a nuclear tsunami.

Go ahead and push it through, Republicans. Ruin your names for all of history. That’s what we want you to do. Because when we get back in power, we’re going to dismantle you with this.

Desperate For Disaster, The GOP Holds On To Kavanaugh- Vote Set Friday.

Kavanaugh's Denial.

The saga of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings has ventured from the unsound into the realm of the bizarre.

A Fox News interview the other night saw Kavanaugh trying desperately to regain his momentum, using what a chess player or movie buff might call the 40-year old Virgin Defense. Remained a virgin well into his twenties, according to him.

Are we supposed to feel sorry for him?

It was weird. Real weird. Here’s a guy who is about to be serving in the highest court in the land, the United States Supreme Court, and he’s on TV listing off all the sexual stuff he did as a young man. Creepy. Gross. Nobody cares, dude. T.M.I.

Kavanaugh’s own feelings about his conduct have receded into insignificance at this point. It’s out of his control completely. Trumpism is about to get hit with #metoo head on. This is the year of the Democratic woman; I wouldn’t be on the other side of this for all the money ever made by man.

Trump himself has launched into a full-blown assault on the attackers. That’s what rape culture is, in case anyone reading this has ever wondered. The victims are the ones who end up on trial because the powerful men the attackers resemble can see it happening to them. They think they’re fighting for their right to party.

One person who vehemently took sides with no facts used to be a decent sort of guy, Lindsey Graham, the Republican Senator from North Carolina. Trump has been chumming him up since the start. Looks like it’s working.

Graham went beyond what is publicly known about the Christine Blasey Ford accusation that Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her as a teenager, saying “everybody named in regard to being there said it didn’t happen.”

Not quite, bud.

Kavanaugh “said it didn’t happen, that much is true. But he also said he was never even in the room, or at the party.

His ex-roommate Mark Judge said otherwise. He was quite clear about Kavanaugh’s having been at the party, and in the room with Dr. Ford. He just denied the events took place within them.

There were another two witnesses also, but they also didn’t go so far as to say, as Graham suggested, that nothing ever happened. Mr. Patrick J. Smyth, and Ms. Leland Ingham Keyser both said they had no recollection of the party that Ford described.

But they didn’t say it never happened.

In fact, Keyser told the Washington Post that she believes Ford. So do Democrats, who understand that bringing an end to rape culture requires that women who come forward with their stories be believed.

That is why former Minnesota Senator Al Franken resigned last year when he was accused by conservative talk show host Leeann Tweeden in a smear operation cooked up by Roger Stone.

All he ever did was to make a tasteless joke, but even so, he was willing to give up his seat in Congress to set an ethical example for the rest of us, and to be a good ally to women. He is missed, and so is his sense of decency, growing thinner by the day in the nation’s fair capital.

On Monday, the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein bomb was dropped. Trump wants to fire him, because, in the words of one headline I read the other day, “The strategy was to try and do something really big,” if it was going to save Kavanaugh.

Trump, in his petty rage and blind arrogance, is threatening to take away the Mueller probe and throw even more disorder into the country if we don’t give him his Kavanaugh.

To this man, the fate and future of the country are just poker chips in his casino- and it went out of business long ago.

Meanwhile, the other Republicans are still clinging to Kavanaugh for all that they are worth. Rush Limbaugh said Republicans can “Kiss the Midterms Goodbye,” if they don’t confirm Kavanaugh. They fear to dampen the enthusiasm of their voters by ditching him before the midterms.

The thought of the harm it might do the country to have a potential pervert in our highest judiciary is not considered at all, so long as he will vote like a crony in the future and put his name on all their lousy schemings. That is their M.O. these days. Ask Roy Moore. Sex offenses and the Senate don’t mix, and the Supreme Court is not a better match.

Understandably, we will fight like a drowning man to save ourselves and our nation from that fate, and this too the Republicans know. That is why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave a shout out to the Resistance in the form of a bitter revile. “Whatever it took– whatever the truth really was- they were going to do whatever they could to stop this…”

You better believe it.

One key Republican holdout, Lisa Murkowski, has already signaled her support for Kavanaugh’s accusers. Senator Susan Collins is said to be wavering also.

To them both, we would like to say this: It is not too late to make the right decision, and to use your power to stop this. Resist party pressure. Vote with your heart. Do what it takes to keep our country great, like it always has been.

Help us to stop this man.

Never Give Poland To Hitler! Schumer Rejects Trump’s Immigration Plan.

Trumpolini

Democrats have roundly rejected Donald Trump’s callous new immigration plan, on the grounds of common sense and principle. As if we were all at a gigantic auto meet, he plans to pressure us to swap the future of our DACA recipients, or Dreamers, for that stupid wall of his.

Trump told Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer(D-NY) the following- If there is no wall, there is no DACA. Unbelieveable.

This is America. We don’t ruin and discard hundreds of thousands of lives, over a pile of bricks and cement, in America. These are people. Not baseball cards.

The Cambridge English Dictionary defines the word “callous” as describing someone who is unkind, cruel, and without sympathy or feeling for other people.

Trump’s new immigration scheme is an excellent working example.

Since it’s Trump, the tendency is to want to avoid shock and revulsion at a story like this, having been shocked thus so many times before, but it simply isn’t possible.

When did Trump voters become so afraid? What is it that has scared them so? These rhetorical questions point the way to a dead and sordid end.

At any rate, Democrats have flatly rejected the whole repugnant concept. Looks like we’re headed for another shutdown.

Although the plan did provide a quick fix security option for Dreamers, it would have done so at a cost of tremendous damage to the immigration system.

The deal was to provide a 10-12 year pathway to citizenship for the 700,000 Dreamers already registered in the program, plus roughly another million undocumented young people in similar straits.

In exchange, Trump’s White House expects Democrats, and pro-reform Republicans, to accede to proposals that will cut even legal immigration by an estimated 50 percent. Particularly, it will be limiting the flow of non-white immigrants.

It will also squander $25 billion on the wall.

That’s a lot of extra taxes, but the Trump voters don’t seem to understand. It’s like they still think Mexico is footing the bill.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi summed up the plan simply as “anti-immigrant.”

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Trump’s plan would institute Trump’s “hard-line immigration agenda on the backs of these young people.”

“President Trump and Republicans cannot be allowed to use Dreamers as a bargaining chip for their wish list of anti-immigrant policies,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

As tempting as it is to give in to this, to protect our friends and our family, it would empower and embolden Trump immensely. The Wall was a signature campaign promise, and news of that $25 billion would have proved to his base once and for all that he’s their man- and many others too, most likely.

After that, they’ll be twice as greedy and twice as aggressive. We have no choice but to stymie them with steadfast resistance. This is the only logical way to proceed.

Trump would not stop with this, of course, even if we did give in. Tyrants never do.

Appeasement is a dirty word for a reason.

It means giving in to brutal dictators, meekly giving in to bullying force.

Above all, it casts the image of the 1938 Munich agreement, where the British prime minister Neville Chamberlain feebly gave in to the outrageous demands of Adolf Hitler, agreeing to allow the violent annexation of Sudeten Czechoslovakia without protest.

Hitler had promised Chamberlain that this would be the last of his territorial demands in Europe but still attacked Poland just under a year later, destroying Chamberlain’s reputation and beginning World War Two.

Never give Poland to Hitler.

Going forward, we are going to be raising awareness about what this plan actually consists of. We’re not going to accede to Trump’s insane demands. But we also have to make it clear why we said no.

Trump wants to use this proposed path to citizenship for young undocumented immigrants as an excuse to devastate the legal immigration system. This cannot be allowed.

“This plan flies in the face of what most Americans believe,” Schumer said on Twitter. While Trump “finally acknowledged that the Dreamers should be allowed to stay here and become citizens, he uses them as a tool to tear apart our legal immigration system and adopt the wish list that anti-immigration hard-liners have advocated for years.”

Schumer’s decision marks the strategic direction of the Democratic opposition.

We are not going to accede to any deal that’s going to hurt the country in the long run, and it’s really sad that our own President would put us in this position. It is sadder still that he sees nothing of value in all these people than a bargaining chip in political negotiations.

We have to find a way forward on immigration that will not come back to haunt us in the future.

Occupy the Women’s March! Bern-Crazed Leaders Must Go.

#VoteForTruth

A year ago, millions of people turned out for the Women’s March, taking to the streets en masse to protest Trump’s inauguration.

On the one year anniversary of that grotesque event, millions of demonstrators gathered on Saturday in another Women’s March, galvanized by the national resistance to Donald Trump and his administration’s policies.

2017 was a year that saw a deluge of revelations about powerful men abusing women. Ultimately it led to the creation of the #MeToo moment.

The disaster that is Donald Trump has pushed activists across the board to demand deeper social and political change. It is happening. It is spectacular. It’s one of the strongest outpourings of social engagement this nation has ever seen, and it’s a good thing, too. We need this power now more than ever.

There were millions of good people out there this weekend, marching for the rights of women everywhere on Earth. Magnificent. Unfortunately, wherever there is power, there will always be those who seek to divert it toward some partisan purpose.

It is the opinion of Millennial Democrats that to co-opt something so crucial for unsavoury political purposes is just scummy. And make no mistake- that is what they are doing.

The people who are running this Women’s March need to go. It’s as simple as that.

In a column Tuesday bearing the headline “When Progressives Embrace Hate,” New York Times editor Bari Weiss took a close look at the women who organized the effort. The picture thus painted isn’t pretty.

Hate is a strong word, one that should not be thrown around lightly. But the statements and actions collected by the four women— Tamika Mallory, Bob Bland, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour—behind the march tell a sad tale.

These are some of the opinions espoused by Ms. Sarsour as collected by the New York Times.

“Nothing is creepier than Zionism,” she wrote in 2012.

From 2015- “You’ll know when you’re living under Shariah law if suddenly all your loans and credit cards become interest-free. Sound nice, doesn’t it?

The article showed Ms Sarsour speaking of women’s issues in the most crude and cruel terms one can imagine. They were worthy of Donald Trump, only he couldn’t do as well. He’s not smart enough.

The comments were utterly vile and do not bear repeating, so we’re not going to repeat them.

Instead, let’s give particular attention to this sentence, drawn from another New York Times article written earlier today.

Progressive women are eager to build on the movement and translate their enthusiasm into electoral victories in this year’s midterm elections.”

Sure enough. Earlier this year, when we found out their 2017 Women’s Convention was going to feature Senator Bernard Sanders at its keynote speaker, we knew what they were up to.

What they want to do is use the momentum they’ve built up at the Women’s Marches to switch the focus from legitimate women’s issues to their chosen candidates at the ballot box.

Those candidates are all to be so-called progressives. Many will be entering politics not to compete with Republicans but to primary out Democrats, which is an old Republican trick by now.

Analysts were quick to note that in so doing, women’s march organizers are following a Tea Party strategy, attacking Obamacare and the president himself to help the Republican Party win control of the House of Representatives in 2010.

“There’s a deliberate attempt by women on the left to take a page out of the same playbook,” said Melissa Deckman, a professor of political science at Washington College who has studied the Tea Party.

Those are Libertarian techniques. The Tea Party arose from the John Birch Society, the centre of radical right politics in America. Their playbook features every dirty trick on the Republican itinerary.

Taking pages from a playbook means you’ve got to have been reading it pretty closely. That’s a big red flag.

We have noted the similarities between the far left and the far right on many occasions here. Their convergence can be seen clearly from the results of the 2016 election. Hillary Clinton said that Bernie Sanders laid the groundwork for Trump’s later “Crooked Hillary” attacks, and she was right.

It seemed strange to have any man be the keynote speaker at a national convention for women, but we’ll leave that aside for now. If that’s what you want, fine.

But can we at least not pick someone whose lurid essays on rape fantasies made us want to vomit? Can we pick someone who isn’t willing to compromise on reproductive rights? Isn’t there somebody around who did not build a literal army of misogynists last year, to constantly attack his female opponent with? Remember when he said she wasn’t qualified to be the president?

The results of our election were compromised by Bernie’s rabid fanaticism. And one of the things he was best at was appealing to the baser instincts of men.

Tamika Mallory, co-founder of Women’s March, thought otherwise.

“I think that right now, no one can deny that Bernie Sanders is probably one of the most powerful U.S. senators … on progressive issues, women’s issues, mobilizing millennials. He is really in line with the principles of the Women’s March,” Mallory said in an exclusive interview Wednesday night.

This point of view can only be described as moronic.

It’s admirable that the organizers of Women’s March are willing to stand up and get involved. It’s also true that no organization or even individual can escape being political, in the wake of Donald Trump. But come on! Bernie Sanders? He’s been on the wrong side of every single issue this year. He did not endorse either of the Democratic governors that started off #TheBlueWave this last November.

That choice was an insult to every woman everywhere, many of whom were dragged savagely through the mud last year by his maniacal supporters. One of our contributors was told that they hoped she was gang-raped, due to her refusal to support their chosen master. And on the subject of rape, look at what Bernie himself wrote on the subject! Just don’t look right after lunch. They might as well have invited Harvey Weinstein.

Women got so mad, so fast, that Bernie backed out as fast as his legs would carry him.

But he left his proxies behind. And they were quick to announce their intent.

Linda Sarsour, for example, tweeted out late in the primary season that “Bernie had changed her life” along with a picture of her framed with the Sanders family.

The aforementioned Tamika Mallory, Women’s March co-president, said at that time she felt Sanders was the perfect fit for the convention, describing him in a statement as a “fierce champion of women’s rights” and someone who has bolstered “female voices throughout his career of public service.”

Bernie has said that Planned Parenthood is the establishment. He says women would prefer to stay home. He penned essays arguing that sexual repression causes cancer in women.

Tamika Mallory’s statement was the absolute height of idiocy. Her invitation to Sanders was a travesty. Feminists nationwide were outraged by it. And they had every right to be.

As usual, our task will be to raise awareness. The magnificent success and noble principles of the Women’s March are being co-opted for the use of Bernie Sanders and the Justice Democrats. We have to let people know.

People aren’t always doing good things for good reasons. It’s important to credit the organizers of the March with the tremendous and crucial successes they scored today.

It’s equally important to realize that they intend to cash in on those successes, to the tremendous and crucial detriment of the country and the Democratic Party.

Going forward, our strategy is simple. We’ve got to Occupy the Women’s March.

DACA Stays! Trump Fumes Helplessly as Renewals are Granted Wholesale.

#DACA #Dreamers

U.S. President Donald Trump blasted the federal court system as “broken and unfair” on Wednesday after a judge from the heroic 9th Circuit blocked his administration’s vicious move to end the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals(DACA) program protecting young immigrants brought to the United States illegally by their parents.

Something in the federal system is broken and unfair, at any rate, and today, like every other day, we’re going to have to be talking about what.

We’re going to do what we always do, and have done for ten days short of a year now. Raise awareness of the fresh and daily travesties granted to us by the infinite wisdom of the president, and the ramifications they will have going forward.

What a lot of fun! I can’t tell you how pleased I am, every morning, to feel a sick pit of nerves in my gut every time I open up my computer, wondering what new horror the day is going to bring.

It’s like that for most Americans these days; earlier this year, a nationwide survey by the American Psychological Association showed clearly that a majority of both Democrats and Republicans are concerned about the future of the country.

This time, Trump has tried to use the lives of 200,000 people as currency to trade for that stupid wall of his, by threatening to end the aforementioned DACA program. He knows we’ll never agree to it, trying for it is just posturing.

Even Trump knows what an ineffective waste of time that wall would be. It was never really about building anything. It was just some cool-sounding thing he liked to say.

The wall has become a symbol of Trump’s entire failure of a presidency. It’s representative of all the things he thinks he wants to do, but hardly understands, and is ruining with his ignorance and bullying.

He says he wants a great country, a safe country, a prosperous country. So do we! Isn’t that what everyone wants? He’s got the power to do it, too. All he’s got to do is resign.

At 70 years old, it is plainly and simply too late for him to realize that the only way that that will ever happen, is by creating an environment where everyone has a place and a share in happiness. Healthy people will do healthy commerce. Healthy commerce means a healthy economy, and so on.

But Trump is so greedy. He picks out at random the people who he physically resembles- nearly all of whom also want nothing to do with him- and he says to the world, Only these people are important, only they matter, everyone else can be thrown out like the trash because they do not look like Donald Trump. 

In effect, that works out to mean that everyone will actually have less, so that a few might feel they’ve got more than a few others. And one or two leeches and ticks at the top like Donald Trump will have basically everything.

Even that chosen few, that master race of welfare collectors, he really cares nothing about. “I don’t need you anymore”, he told a crowd of his own supporters a year ago, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

And he meant it. He lies to other Republicans routinely, he uses them as tools and then throws them away. That’s why they’re retiring left and right, like both Ed Royce and Darrell Issa of California. Those two guys were lied to very badly indeed.

Trump told California Republicans that he would not end the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals(DACA) program, but he very nearly did it already.

He also lied to them and said that state marijuana would be respected and not interfered with, but Sessions rolled back the Obama-era instructions to leave state weed alone, three days after California announced its new recreational cannabis laws.

This kind of thing is why there are now 31 Republicans who will not seek re-election in November. 19 are retiring outright and another 12 have deluded themselves into running for higher office.

That list is expected to grow in the coming weeks.

There has never been something like this before, and many Republicans know it, even if they won’t say it out loud. The president himself is a probable traitor. He praises Putin, he asked for his help during the debates, and he does nothing to discourage our most hostile foe from presenting a gigantic threat not only to our democracy but to democracy worldwide.

Dianne Feinstein is labelled “Sneaky” and a criminal, for doing her job well, showing the world how the Republicans have been covering up for Trump as he covers up for Putin.

What has happened in this country, when following the precise dictates of the law has become something only outlaws do? When did patriotism become uncool? What has happened to the Republicans? Exactly when did the party of Ronald Reagan start letting the Russians waltz all over us?

Trump threatened Feinstein in the same bullying, childish tone about the “Tough Primary Challenge” she’ll be facing. It’s as if he’s saying, “Oh yeah, lady. That “Justice Democrat” (how much more do we need that these people are not on the level?)coming after you this year? It’s me you’re really up against.”

At the end of the day, California and other states put together a good lawsuit, and the Democrats came through for us again. In a victory for Dreamers, and all Americans, federal immigration authorities quietly announced they have resumed accepting requests for renewals in DACA.

“Until further notice, if you already applied for #DACA and it was expiring, this is your chance to reapply,” California Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra tweeted Saturday night.

The government’s announcement was made without fanfare Saturday evening. This happy news came four days after a federal judge in San Francisco issued an order temporarily blocking the Trump administration’s decision to phase out the program.

Daddy Warbucks has been foiled again. That’s the only whole fair thing that ever happens anymore.

How Russians Silence Democrats on Facebook- With Impugnity.

GET MAD- while you still can!

There’s nothing like constant reminders of how Nazis all over the world are out to get you to fill one’s heart with joy and fancy-free, especially when such hatred is your reward for writing for free for a third of every day.

Today, people from as diverse a location as Brussels, Wales, Provo, Utah, and “General Location, Russia” tried to hack the site; I get emails on them from all over the world. This is nothing new, it’s an everyday event. My Sucuri plugin lets me know their IP addresses. It looks just like this:

Bored, uncreative loser who tried to hack me
An example of a turd who tried to hack us.

Then, we go to a place called WhatismyIPaddress.com, and take a look at where they’re from. It looks a lot like this:

Creepy.
Lviv is a very famous place, world renowned for the quality of its IT experts. This one decided to make his life’s work the ruining of ours. Nice, Russia.

And so it goes. Every day. The threats just keep rolling in. “If you back off, then nothing will happen”, one guy wrote to us. How creepy.

On the subject of cyber-woes, let’s not forget Facebook. More than 120 million Americans were reached by Russian ads through their platform in 2016.

Regarding Facebook’s treatment of Democratic activists, there are exactly two possibilities. Either they are unfair, unethical, and unfit, or they are absolutely incompetent.

Either way, hundreds of loyal and hardworking Democratic activists are in what we refer to as Facebook Jail, as these words are being written. This has been the case for at least six months; there’s countless documentation. Nobody listens.

One young lady who always goes out of her way to spread our articles around on Facebook has been mass-reported and algorithmically defiled to the point where a single post is now enough to have her sent back to jail.

That’s exactly what happened yesterday. One week’s worth of restriction, for sharing our post on the fake left and the so-called Justice Democrats. She’d just had her last restriction lifted, two hours prior. As soon as she hit the Share button, she was given another week’s restriction.

It just plain sucks, when you’re stopped for months at a time from even commenting in Facebook groups that you created, because of Russian agitators gaming their stupid robots. The data just keeps rolling in, as to how good they’ve gotten at doing it, and how Facebook just keeps letting them.

Facebook must be reformed. It must stand up, show some transparency, and hold itself accountable.

That’s exactly what it hasn’t done.

It makes you wonder if someone hasn’t managed to shake up Zuckerberg.

I haven’t even tried to organize this article. It’s just raw today.

Julian Assange, that scruffy little rat, has been rewarded for his treason to the species with a citizenship in Ecuador. He’ll be out partying tonight, thanks to his buddy Vladimir coming through for him.

Earlier today, the president labelled Dianne Feinstein “Sneaky” and a criminal, for doing her job well, showing the world how the Republicans have been covering up for Trump as he covers up for Putin by revealing the Fusion GPS testimony.

Where has justice gone?

What has happened in this country, when following the precise dictates of the law has become something only outlaws do? When did patriotism become uncool? What has happened to the Republicans? Exactly when did the party of Ronald Reagan start letting the Russians waltz all over us?

Trump threatened Feinstein in the same bullying, childish tone about the “Tough Primary Challenge” she’ll be facing. It’s as if he’s saying, “Oh yeah, lady. That “Justice Democrat” (how much more do we need that these people are not on the level?)coming after you this year? It’s me you’re really up against.”

“If you back off, nothing will happen…”

That piece of trash didn’t know how right he was. If you back off, if you back down, if you go back to sleep and be silent, then nothing will happen. Nothing will EVER happen. So that is the absolute last thing that we will ever do!

Millennial Democrats will not be intimidated, and we will not be pushed around. Petty attempts to harass or frighten us will do nothing but strengthen our resolve. With every challenge they force us to find our way around, we expand our capabilities further.

Our message to the bullying little nobodies who’ve been putting all this effort into silencing us is merely this: We will bear witness anyway. Actually, we appreciate your help. All of your harassment is a sign of our success.

While you’ve been so desperately trying to destroy us, we’ve had readers in nearly every country in the world, in less than six months.

So hack away, you bunch of whackers. Once you finish failing, the only thing you’re good at, hit a treadmill and get some girlfriends. Thanks for the digital lessons, too. We’ll be sure to come and show you what we’ve done with them, some sunny day.

The worst thing is that we cannot count on our president to protect us from these foreign assailants. That is indeed a terrible feeling. But it won’t always be this way. We won’t always be on the receiving end.

This whole Trump thing, all the alt-right nonsense, the Richard Spencers and all the rest of it, amounts to nothing more than the final death-throes of reactionary fascism. It’s a fish in a dried-up pond. Casting one’s lot with that pack of nincompoops is the worst imaginable wager.

When the end comes for Donald Trump and his whole rotten way of life, there’s going to be a lot of people out there who’ve been wearing those stupid red hats of his who are not going to be forgiven.

They’ll be like Sudeten Germans in 1945. Outcast from society forever. No matter what you do, no matter what you say, you will never be trusted again. And you will never be welcome again. Our message to Trump supporters is simply this: TURN BACK NOW. Before it is forever too late.
