Who’s That Girl?

Hmmm. I’ll bet it’s a real mystery what I’m going to write about today!

That wonderful picture above is courtesy of our own Contrask, from Tulsa, Oklahoma, where approximately 3500 people marched this past weekend both in support of women, and against Drumpf. Here are a few more of her pix.

Nice pantsuits!

They Persist

Grope ’em by the…

Not going to break US!

Two great signs

So think about that…in Tulsa, there were 3500 people marching, one year after the biggest single day of activism in the history of our country. If you went by most of the media last weekend, you might think nothing much happened. But the truth is, something huge happened, and it’s been happening ever since January 21, 2017. It’s #TheResistance, and it’s only getting bigger

and BIGGER.

And even though the largely white, male and oblivious masters of the Teevee screens don’t get it; the bros in Silicon Valley don’t get it; and the leaders of the DNC don’t get it; it doesn’t matter. Because we’re women, and we’re people who support women’s rights, and we’re taking this country back. And believe me, they’ll notice in November.

This is an open thread.

Good morning Vietnam! I mean, Widdershins.

The big bomb of the week (more like a nuke) was Dianne Feinstein releasing the transcript of the complete Fusion GPS testimony to Congress. The owner of Fusion, Glenn Simpson, asked for it to be released because he thought Republicans were leaking incomplete and inaccurate information about what he said. Committee chairman, Chuck Grassley, refused to release it citing an on-going investigation. The on-going investigation included Grassley and Lindsey Graham sending a recommendation to the Justice Department that Christopher Steele, who did the research for the infamous Steele Dossier (which just celebrated 1 year anniversary since being published by BuzzFeed, who were accused by “journalists” like Chuck “Underprepared” Todd of publishing smut and lies), be investigated and prosecuted. These actions by Grassley and Graham made Feinstein’s decision essential.

On March 15, 2017 Grassley and Feinstein emerged from a meeting with the FBI director and they looked shaken. They heard something that terrified them. But the terror they experienced did not come from the same place. They are not afraid of the same thing. Grassley, one can conclude from his actions, heard something that put the fear of the goddess into him. What is Grassley guilty of that he has done all that he could to stifle the investigation into Trump’s collusion with Russia, and then to flat out sabotage it last week? When he (and Lindsey Graham – another Rethuglican who has become a full on Trump sycophant) sent the recommendation to the Justice Department to prosecute Steele, they did so without consulting the other Democrats on the committee. So earlier this week Dianne Feinstein took Grassley’s playbook and shoved it up his rear end.

A note about Feinstein: she’s been around the block once or twice. I’ve expressed some concerns about her myself, we all have, probably. She didn’t do something fast enough or didn’t say something strong enough. I think those criticisms are all fair. But her going full Godfather Christening montage on GOP and Trump was proof of ovaries of steel. (She released the transcript while sitting in a meeting with Dump and getting him to say he wants DACA. Multitasking.) This is something that a more junior Senator would never have had the courage to do. So while we might get angry at long-serving members of Congress – and there is a lot to be said for term limits – there’s also no denying that in the current political climate throwing out senior members of Congress would be a horrific idea. Again, what Feinstein did without flinching could not have been done by a more junior member of Congress. Seniority matters now.

Of all the things Fusion GPS testimony revealed – which terrified Grassley and Co. – another important revelation was that Christopher Steele told the NY Times about some of his findings two weeks before their infamous “FBI session no clear link to Russia” headline. That article stopped Steele from cooperating with the FBI. This article, which at the time was widely seen as  smacking down Clinton’s assertions that Trump was a Russian puppet, was also a smackdown at other reporters who were writing about Trump and Russia. Same day Times cleared Trump, the very same day, Franklin Foer wrote about odd communications between servers at Trump Tower and Russian Alfa Bank. The very same day David Corn wrote about a mysterious Dossier he was shown that nobody dared discuss out loud. That very same day New York Times gave Donald Trump a boost by publicly clearing him of colluding with Russia. We should remember this always.


Well, well, well. Oprah gave a speech at the Golden Globes, and now, she’s gonna be President in 2020! Indeed, she seems not just inevitable, but the best possible choice against Drumpf, if we believe the hyperventilating media.

The breakout star of the 75th Golden Globes has better odds to claim the White House than former Vice President Joe Biden, according to BetOnline, a prominent Internet gambling company.

The company is currently giving the former daytime television star 20 to 1 odds of becoming the next President of the United States. Those betting on Biden are given 25 to 1 odds. Some other contenders Winfrey topped were Mark Zuckerberg, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand — all of whom were given 25 to 1 odds.

Or…maybe not.

Winfrey trailed other Democratic luminaries, including Sen.  Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Kamala Harris, both of whom had 12 to 1 odds. Leading the pack, of course, was the president himself, Donald Trump, who BetOnline put at 2 to 1.

D’oh! If we believe these guys, Oprah is a long shot at best, and the Mango Moron is a shoo-in for 8 years, no matter who runs in 2020.

So uh…what’s going on here?

My musings are, we really don’t know what 2020 will bring. There are a few factors we have to consider if we are going to indulge in this kind of pre-emptive prognostication. Come with me now into the future…future…future….

Q: In 2020, will Drumpf still be squatting in the Oval Office like an orange smushed on the carpet?

MB Says: No. I am almost completely sure that Drumpf will no longer be President, but when will his removal happen, and what will precipitate it? Will it be the Michael Wolff revelations, causing the conversations about the Mango Meerkat’s mental stability to go mainstream, and to become too vociferous to ignore? Will the Republicans successfully navigate that particular storm, only to be toppled by #BlueTsunami2018?  Will Robert Mueller’s investigation take down not just the corrupt POTUS, but the VP, others in his family, and Russia-connected members of Congress?

Check this out:

In 2015-16, everything changed. [Russian oligarch] Blavatnik’s political contributions soared and made a hard right turn as he pumped $6.35 million into GOP political action committees, with millions of dollars going to top Republican leaders including Sens. Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham [emphasis mine].In 2017, donations continued, with $41,000 going to both Republican and Democrat candidates, along with $1 million to McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund [emphasis mine].

I believe that what causes 45’s political demise will impact the 2018 mid-term elections, as well as the 2020 election.

Q: What will the narrative be for Drumpf as he crashes and burns?

MB Says: I don’t know! I am sure that whatever it is, all the brand-new Democrats running will effectively weaponize it in order to win the House, and perhaps the Senate. But if he stays in till the Democrats impeach him, people may feel that Drumpf’s issues were not due to his inexperience, but to his uniquely toxic mixture of corruption, obstinate stupidity and autocratic daydreaming. In an odd way, his impeachment may legitimize the choice of the Electoral College to install someone who has no clue what’s he’s doing as President. After all, other presidents who were impeached, or almost impeached, were legitimate. (I’m sure someone, somewhere, is thinking up that spin right now.)

On the other hand, if the 25th Amendment is used to remove him, Americans may look at Oprah or any of the other celebrities running, and say, “We tried the “no experience” thing and we got a complete whackadoo who won’t let people change his sheets for him, who naps (come on, you know that’s what “executive time” means) from 8 am to 11 am every day, and who freaks out on Twitter every five minutes. Thanks, but no thanks. Let’s get someone in there who actually knows how the government works. Mmmkay?”

And that leads me to this question:

Q: What role will the media play in 2020?

MB: This is the $64,000 ($64B in 45’s dollars) question. I have historically insisted, long and often, that the media has no power over Hillary Clinton. In one way, the election of 2016 vindicated my position regarding traditional media outlets; HRC won the popular vote, by a lot, despite the best and sincerest efforts of the Teevee and some papers (You know who you are, New York Times!) to cause her to lose. In another way, the election of 2016 demonstrated the awe-inspiring power of social media, which was expertly hacked by Russia to target persuadable voters and convince them that, at the very least, “Bernie wuz robbed!”. Without these bots and troll farms, more Bernie/Stein/Johnson voters would have voted for Hillary, and even the #fake electoral college victory wouldn’t have been credible.

The media problem we have is twofold.

First, all forms of media are now addicted to a political environment that changes every 20-30 minutes. The clicks and refreshes and subscriptions and views are off the charts for all cable news. If you have a non-celebrity Democratic candidate in 2020, who would just happen to make a great President, will the media yawn and give other candidates, perhaps other Republican celebrity candidates (don’t rule out porn and meth house maven Steve Bannon), the free publicity they gave the Orange Crusher?

Second, the media falls in love with folksy figures like Oprah. Look what happened with Obama (who didn’t have 1/10th of Oprah’s charisma, in my opinion)! The media swooned, and people fainted at his rallies. He had folksiness. The Donald, spoiled, entitled, rich sh*thead that he truly is, also knew how to fake it. Meanwhile, there was Hillary, much, MUCH better qualified, but without the innate sound-byting and messaging capabilities of either her 2008 or 2016 opponents. I continue to believe that Obama was a middling-to-poor President, and clearly, Drumpf is running away with the “WPE” title, vastly exceeding Raygun and Dubya in only his first year.  (So. Much. Winning!)But it hardly matters. If the media doesn’t realize that the qualities of an exciting and charismatic campaigner are not the same as the qualities of a President who knows how to govern, we’ll be hearing all about how Kamala Harris or Cory Booker “just don’t have the passion of Oprah” or how Eric Swallwell (someone I’d like to see on one side of a ticket) “seems like too much of a white guy from Connecticut.” Too smart! Too wonky! Yada yada f*cking yada.

As you can see, I don’t have a lot of answers, only musings. I’ll leave you with this one: My poli-sci professor friend asked me which celebrity I could see running as a Democrat in 2020, and I picked Oprah. So I’m not totally opposed to the idea (again: Voting for the D no matter who it is. Just wanted to say that for the record). My point is that now is wayyyyyyyy too early to be thinking about 2020. Let’s get out the vote in 2018 and take our country back from the corrupt and cruel GOP, and kick Russia out of our electoral system once and for all.

What do you think?

I’m just going to throw Randy Rainbow’s latest in here, because it’s actually genius.

This is an open thread.

 

 

 

 

Trump-Bannon.jpg

Good morning Widdershins,

There’s a storm coming, so I hope anyone being effected is prepared and staying warm! I think it’s supposed to come to NYC as well, but honestly, since I’m working from home I’m not too concerned. Although my dog might not enjoy blistering walks (he likes snow.)

Speaking of storms, category 6 Hurricane Bannon hit the Dump White House yesterday. Excerpts from a new book by Michael Wolff, “Fire and Fury,” were published in The New Yorker. (The book is already #1 on Amazon’s best seller list.) Whether or not it’s true (and there are reasons to question Michael Wolff’s often imaginative imagination) isn’t even relevant. I’m sure some of the stories are true and others are true in part. And it’s not the stories themselves that matter, it’s the fact that Steve Bannon told some of them them, Michael Wolff put them in a book, and Donald Dump thought they were true enough to release a blistering attack on Bannon (on official White House letterhead via Sarah Huckleberry), calling Bannon insane. Don Junior activated his attack mode and called Bannon a lying, backstabbing ingrate on Twitter.

DNVVqxAUIAAFYb4.jpg

Rebekah Mercer

Rebekah Mercer, the former actress (whose credits include “Xena: Warrior Princess) and evil billionaire who has been funding Bannon’s Breitbart and the Dump campaign has, supposedly, severed all ties with Bannon. Which part of all this is not living up to Mercer’s expectations, I don’t know. I suppose she may have expected loyalty from a man she gave so much money to. Perhaps she expected honor among thieves? Dump doesn’t have any; he has destroyed more people than one can count. But it will be interesting to see what happens in this angry divorce between Bannon and Dump. So much of their followers are the same people: alt-right, white supremacists. Arguably they were Bannon’s first. He gifted them to Dump. Now they will have to choose sides. It’s a real pickle they find themselves in… Who do you think they will choose?

 

And what does the GOP think about all this? Well, Mitch McConnell’s official Twitter feed posted this creepy gif:

Image result for mitch mcconnell smiling gif

Draw your own conclusions. Everybody else has been strangely quiet. (But we can imagine their responses. For example, when asked about Dump’s tweet threatening nuclear annihilation, Susan Collins said … “I’m going to vote” as she stormed away to vote on something. Bob Corker laughed and said he hadn’t seen the tweet, but Trump will be Trump. LOL.) So as a Civil War breaks out in the GOP – what do we think Widdershins? What is Bannon doing? We know his real desire is to destroy everything. So are his opening shots at Trump a surprise? He built Dump and he will destroy him. What will Dump do in response? He’s certainly going to do something… What will McTurtle do besides grin? Is this war good or bad for the GOP? And how will Democrats screw everything up?

I know only one thing: in 2020 Bannon will endorse Bernie Sanders for President. Mark my words.

 


Good Monday, all. We have certainly had some very good news this past week. The amazing victory of Doug Jones in Alabama took us all by surprise…and for once, it was a happy surprise! Roy Moore’s refusal to concede is both embarrassing and ridiculous, and makes both him and the Republican Party look worse (if such a thing is even possible). It won’t get him anywhere except the loony bin, which, frankly, is where he has belonged for a long time.

As DYB pointed out on Saturday, Senator-Elect Jones ran as an unabashed liberal on social issues, with the requisite full-throated support for a woman’s right to choose. It’s important to note this actual fact, as I’ve been hearing an alarming amount of noise from white men in the media who don’t seem to feel Jones had the winning strategy.

“Why can’t Democrats allow some room for pro-lifers in the Party?” bemoaned well-known sexist jackass “Tingly Leg” Chris Matthews last week. “I mean, most people are against late-term abortions. It would make such a difference in red states.” (I can’t seem to find this video – sorry folks, maybe someone else can?) Now, let me get this straight…a 70-year-old white Catholic man is advising Democrats to throw women’s rights under the bus, even after it has been demonstrated time and again that women have been critical to the special election sweeps since 2016? This was before Jones’ victory, I admit…but if moderate white Republican women didn’t go over to Jones, he wouldn’t have won. Do you really think they were worried about abortion when they went to the voting booth? Somehow I think they were more worried about their teenage daughters running into Moore in the mall!

If only Matthews were the only one pushing this crap. But alas, he’s not. White male, and now-former Republican Joe Scarborough jumped on the train that same week. Surrounding Democratic 2020 candidate John Delaney (yes, I know, who?) with an all-conservative, almost all-male audience (the sole female being Peggy Noonan), white male Delaney was mercilessly quizzed about his Catholicism and how he feels about abortion. Delaney said he feels that pro-life Democrats should “join the big tent” as long as they support the other planks of the platform, like “economic values.” Really, John, really? And how will women gain economic equality if Democrats don’t consider their rights as human rights? Or are we really supposed to accept the idiotic Sandersian myth that a $15/hr. minimum wage will magically erase the institutionalized racism and misogyny that keep women and people of color from earning their fair share of the dollar?

I’m going to bang on an old drum here: Democrats have not done right by their female supporters in decades. They never pushed through the ERA when they had the chance. When they had their first viable female candidate for the Presidency in 2008, the National Party decided Obama was more “historic,” and demonstrably rigged the nomination for him. Perhaps this innate knowledge that we are an afterthought for most Dems, is why so many of my white sisters vote Republican? Certainly after the debacle of 2008, many of us frustrated women (and the men who support us) re-registered as Independents, but came back to the fold when the Tea Party rose up and took the Republicans on the final leg of their long trip to CrazyTown.

After the Democratic Party once again allowed a sexist man to run a misogynistic campaign against Hillary in 2016, contributing to her electoral defeat, women started getting a lot smarter. They stopped passively expecting the Party to help them, and decided to take it over for themselves. The leadership of the Party should have noticed this by now. Women are running for office in unbelievable numbers, and winning, and are the backbone of the Resistance which helped defeat the overturn of the Affordable Care Act and fueled the anti-Trump furor across America. Yet, if my Maryland brother John Delaney is any indication, it’s clear that the Democratic Party still cannot get over its encrusted and myopic focus on its…male members. (Wink.)

I admit I have just started to fully understand my privilege as a white female living in a blue state. There is not a chance in hell that a pro-death Democrat will beat a pro-choice one here. And in fact, I couldn’t care less what people think privately, as long as they don’t vote to curtail a woman’s right to choose in any way. But should we really invite this kind of ambiguity into the Party, when so many women have lost access to not just abortion, but any form of pre-natal care at all? And when our maternal mortality rate has gone up so much, we’re now the only developed country where it’s increasing?

This excellent Slate article explains why we’re going backwards instead of forwards in the area of women’s health. There are three reasons: poverty, lack of access to health care, and regressive contraception and abortion policies. All of these issues disproportionately affect African-American women, who die in childbirth at 3 times the rate of white women, and 98% of whom voted for Doug Jones, a pro-choice Democrat.

I hope we’re seeing the connection here.

I’m not going to threaten to leave the Party. I’m over that; as I’ve said a few times now, I’ll vote for an artichoke if it has a D next to it. Our democracy depends on wresting power from the wanna-be Fascist in the White House, and the cowardly, corrupt Republicans who are enabling his blatant dismantling of our sacred rule of law.

But I will say this. If the Democrats do not get their sh*t together and start respecting women’s rights as much as they respect that cranky old Socialist’s annoying rants, they will most assuredly hear from me. And I suspect millions of my sisters and brothers will do the same.

This is an open thread.

Sigh. Good morning, all. This was a week like few of us have experienced in national politics. While the Commander-In-Chief demonstrated his mental illness, racism and stupidity for all the world to see, and Mueller’s case for obstruction visibly grew more and more ironclad, the GOP rushed breathlessly and desperately to do their donors’ bidding and pass the most horrible bill in modern history. It’s like the kitchen sink of everything reality-based individuals oppose.

As Our Girl said during the Teen Vogue Summit,

“We’re facing a concerted effort to turn back progress,” Clinton told the audience. “This is a well funded, ideological, and very mean spirited campaign to strip away rights that have been won by people over the last 50, 60 years.” With that in mind, Clinton spent much of her keynote conversation with Blackish star and teen activist Yara Shahidi focused on energizing the younger generation – and driving home the importance of their vote. “This could not be a more blatant and insulting attack on hardworking Americans,” she said of the tax bill, “and we can’t let them get away with it. And how are we going to prevent that? We’re going to vote in 2018. Yara’s going to turn 18 and she’s going to vote in 2018.”

What did she mean by “strip away rights that have been won by people over the last 50, 60 years?” Isn’t this primarily a wealth transfer bill, which is bad enough, and will negatively impact 99% of Americans?

Well, no, it’s not.

So far, here’s what else is in the Senate bill. Let’s just say evangelicals, the oil and gas industry, and racists make out very nicely. Women, poor and working class people of color, children, the environment, the separation of church and state…not so much.

So what happens now? The bill goes to conference, and unless there are some major machinations going on in the background, agreement could be farther away than we might think. If Drumpf starts throwing his “Fart of the Deal” into the mix, and saying the corporate tax rate needs to be higher, then what will the House and Senate do? Will they ignore him, or will they try to make him happy?

And then there’s Susan Collins. She claims her “yes” vote is not final, and will depend on what comes out of conference. There were several amendments she put in that she thinks make a big difference, but she also said she had an ironclad commitment that Social Security and Medicare won’t be cut….and of course, they will be, as Marco Rubio so blithely admitted, publicly. In fact, other Republicans were promised “a better bill out of conference,” and were under pressure to vote yes. What will they do if/when the final bill doesn’t meet their requirements?

Whatever happens, it doesn’t appear likely that the bill will pass quickly out of conference. Until it does, there are plenty of peaceful actions you can take to show your displeasure with your Congresscritter, should s/he be voting the wrong way. I know contrask is planning to march, and Luna posted this link for those who can protest in DC today and tomorrow. Great job, ladies!!

If we are unsuccessful in stopping this atrocity from passing reconciliation, what then? Well, first and foremost, remember that tax law takes time to implement, and the Trumpsters are terrible at executing on policy. The IRS is habitually underfunded, especially since the (false) accusations a couple of years ago that the department was unfairly targeting conservative organizations. How quickly can this really go through?

In the meantime, the Mango Moron has admitted to obstruction of justice on Twitter, and the national conversation is going there. And yes, even if someone else wrote his tweet about knowing that Flynn lied to the FBI (which didn’t happen), the President is still responsible for what is posted on that account. What 45 is doing now is like blaming your ghostwriter for bad reviews. It’s not done because it doesn’t pass the smell test. You put your name on it, you own it! So that’s happening…and oh did we forget, the government may shut down soon?

So yes, after this horrible year, we all deserve massive amounts of whiskey, eggnog, Real Housewives of Whatever, or [insert guilty pleasure here]. And we will indulge! Just make sure to keep your eyes on the prize: Paper ballots, turnout, keeping the Party focused on our values of inclusion and diversity, and supporting Democratic challengers in 2018 (ESPECIALLY women of color and LGBT). All else is distraction, including talk of 2020.

This is an open thread.

 

 

 

 

 

Haven’t we been here before?

Good day to you Widdershins

I’m sort of repaying DYB for taking the weekend post for me and I have just a few things to share today.

Let’s rehash old news

The Rude Pundit tells us that we are going again into the Clinton Circle of Hell which I take to mean that whenever the Republicans find themselves in hot water of any sort, it’s always a good idea to bring out the Clintons to either rehash old shit or find a new twist on something that’s already been resolved – think Uranium One on that.

Mr Pundit is of course referring to the newly-hatched idea of “let’s investigate when Bill Clinton was a horn dog”, and specifically the case of Juanita Broaddrick.  And it’s not just the Republicans who are doing this.  No, it’s some progressives like Michelle Goldberg of the NYT and on the tube, Chris Hayes.

Hayes’s tweet inspired stories on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, Breitbart and The Daily Caller, all apparently eager to use the Clinton scandals to derail discussions about Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for the United States Senate in Alabama who is accused of sexually assaulting minors.  (See Divert and deflect) < By me

These fine members of the progressive left either don’t know or fail to remember that as Rude says:

In the Atlantic, Caitlin Flanagan brings up Gloria Steinem’s 1998 New York Times editorial defending Clinton and excoriating the women, declaring it “shameful.” Of course, Flanagan doesn’t mention the 1999 Times editorial calling on Clinton to publicly answer for Broaddrick’s allegations.

Mr. Pundit has to sit down and s’plain to these younguns that it has been beaten to death and it was the Republicans who, like a dog with a chew toy, wouldn’t let go until everyone got to the point of “Oh puhleeze, not another Clinton investigation”.  He even says “Go read the Starr Report.  Rude actually says “Fer fuck’s sake, read the fucking Starr Report. And let me add that if you go to the twitter machine and look up some of Broaddrick’s old tweets, she’s not a sympathetic person.

He goes on to explain that after Ronnie Raygun and the Iran-Contra flap came Bush 41’s mess with the bank that was involved in the funding for the Contra mess.

As he explains in his post, 41 just one term and Ronnie had his scandal and couldn’t the Repubs have just one President since Nixon without any need for damage control due to things they did themselves?  So once Mr. William Jefferson Clinton came in they were going to fix that smug bastard.  Republicans were on the hunt for anything to take those young asshole Clintons down.

You know the rest:  Whitewater, Travelgate, Hillary’s work at the Rose Law Firm, and then…the women.  It’s a good read so please go check it out.

We’ve all made a mistake about the Trump boys

From Charles Pierce at Esquire and from Julia Ioffe of the Atlantic, we can all now agree that hey, we made some big mistakes about just who was the dumb one between the Trump brothers. Let’s put it this way:  that picture of Junior sitting on a stump may have given away far more than we thought at the time.

This refers of course to the deal with Junior and Wikileaks/Julian Assange.

Assange sized this hungry fish up with a master’s eye. At which point, he pretty much shot the moon.

WikiLeaks made a series of increasingly bold requests, including asking for Trump’s tax returns, urging the Trump campaign on Election Day to reject the results of the election as rigged, and requesting that the president-elect tell Australia to appoint Julian Assange ambassador to the United States. (might as well ask for it all – right?)

Pierce goes on to ask:

To get back to Junior, however, how stupid do you have to be to get involved even marginally in something like this? Assange believes in nothing but himself. He’d sell Junior to the Somali pirates if he thought that would advantage him in some way.

Let’s not go into the how stupid part, but as he says, we all should give Eric an apology. Go check out both articles they are worth the read.

That’s all I have today.
