It’s not hard to understand

Look, folks, it’s not hard to understand why Republicans are blocking an unredacted Mueller report from ever being released.

The President has shitty, barely-legal business dealings with Russian oligarchs, and that’s just the shit we’ve known about all along. The reason the Special Counsel investigation sought a couple dozen indictments was because folks lied before Congress, or lied in their testimony before the Grand Jury about those business deals.

They lied to protect the President from facing any legal consequences for fraud and illegal business practices, just like Donald Trump has engaged in for his entire career.

If there was anything, anything at all that was going to serve as the slam-dunk evidence, which they promised all along was coming, of collusion with the Russian government to tamper with the election, Mueller would have indicted people for it.

Stop pretending like we don’t already know what this shit is, and what it isn’t. We know. We’ve always known. We just don’t want to accept that that’s what it is, and people voted for him, anyway, or that Democrats ran a candidate they *knew* wouldn’t get the coronation she wanted, but they expected black voters and progressives to dutifully support Grandma Pinochet anyway. They knew that Obama-to-Trump voters were going to be a thing, and they ran Hillary, and her batshit stupid campaign anyway.

Stop pretending any of these people have your interests in mind. They do not.

Not the Republican party, not the Democrats, and not the media that’s colluded with them both to hype this bullshit.

This year Medicare for All has the greatest support it’s ever had

This year Medicare for All has the greatest support across the country that it has ever had.

If we had a Congress that wasn’t bought-off, that support would translate into political action to save American lives.

No one is suggesting growth is impossible

For those of you telling me that you think Tulsi Gabbard’s apologies for her past hideousness on LGBT issues and toward queer people are sincere, well, that’s nice for you. But I came out as a baby fag in 1984 right in the middle of an entire society was more than content to let us all die, hearing how their god was visiting his wrath upon the country because I existed. I’ve been down this road before, and I know precisely how conditional so-called “tolerance” from christians is really is. Y’all wanna crow about her endorsement from HRC, feel more than free, but I remain suspicious, because hard experience has taught me that it’s fucking stupid to do anything else.

Precisely no one is suggesting that it’s impossible for people to change their minds, and to grow. But if that “growth” is conveniently timed with your run for Congress, and you’re reminding everyone how much you’ve “grown” now that you’re running for President, well… that ain’t growth, folks. It’s political expediency. If you’re smart, you’ll trust that that’s only ever going to last long enough for Gabbard to “evolve” into something else.

It’s worth noting that despite fawning praise from zillionaire lobbies like HRC, Gabbard is more than willing to point out that her “personal views” haven’t changed a bit.

A 2016 profile of the combat veteran published in Ozy suggests otherwise: “She tells me that, no, her personal views haven’t changed, but she doesn’t figure it’s her job to do as the Iraqis did and force her own beliefs on others,” noted reporter Sanjena Sathian.

You guys want to trust her? Knock yourselves out.

But don’t expect anyone else to do the same.

“I don’t call it aid…”

Israel is the 7th or 8th largest arms exporter worldwide. @SpeakerPelosi is right that US military aid to Israel isn’t actually aid – it’s political theater so the US will look like it’s doing something meaningful while pretending it can’t see Israel’s treatment of Palestinians.

Meanwhile, at the #AIPAC conference, Nancy Pelosi assures attendees that even if the #GolanHeights move causes the US to crumble to the ground, the only thing that will remain is its servitude to #Israel.

If you’re a pro-Israel democrat

If you’re a pro-israel, “hamas are bad guys, tooooo!” democrat, can you please, one of you, explain the difference between Israel’s actions, here, and Trump’s foreign policy “solution” to dealing with ISIS?

“All Israeli crossings into Gaza now closed, fishermen blocked from going out to sea Supplies cannot get in, despite population being dependent on humanitarian aid The people are trapped

Firing rockets into population center is war crime. Does NOT justify collective punishment”

Trump: “The other thing with the terrorists is you have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families.”
