What a sexy stud of a man!

Oh wait, no, that was Steve Bannon. Who got fired today, probably because of the gonzo interview he gave to American Prospect, which was a blatant violation of message discipline. My guess is that General Kelly used this as his ammunition to finally shitcan the asswipe. It’s been well known that General Kelly was no fan of Bannon (and vice vice versa). But you can’t just fire one of Cheeto Mussolini’s friends without having some hefty ammo to bring to the battle… and Bannon gave Kelly a fucking dumptruck of ammo.

So now Steve’s shitcanned. Which, given that a) he was probably the smartest dude in the Trump White House, and b) he is totally devoid of any redeeming moral or ethical values, probably is a good thing for America. Evil smart people ought to be kept as far away from the levers of power as possible. Trump’s loss is our gain.

But never fear, Steve always has his good looks to fall back upon! What a genetically superior specimen he is!

Or, plan B, he can go back to work for Breitbart.com again. Gosh, supermodel or Breitbart.com? I wonder which one it will be? 🙂

The rats are surely deserting the ship.

Of course Trump has Mafia connections. He’s a real estate developer in NYC and New Jersey. He couldn’t do that if he didn’t have Mafia connections. All the real estate developers there are mobbed up, it’s how things are done.

The real story isn’t Trump’s Mafia connections. It’s about how voices on the right are now feeling their way towards directly criticizing Trump, rather than the sort of lukewarm faint praise that they previously gave him out of fear of Trump’s MAGAts. Apparently despite Charlottesville, the sharks are smelling blood in the water coming from the direction of the Trump administration. And where there’s blood, eventually there will be a feeding frenzy….

SNORK!. Turned out that one of the councils, the Manufacturing Council, voted to officially disband before Trump’s tweet saying he was disbanding them. And then Trump said “you can’t quit, I’m firing you!”. ROFL.

This White House has become so toxic that even right wing business leaders don’t want to associate with it. And we have 3 1/2 more years of this — maybe 7 1/2 more years, depending on whether Trump manages to get us into a war.

We are so fucked….

Steve Bannon just gave an interview with the liberal magazine American Prospect where he sounds downright reasonable compared to most of the Trumpistas.

Steve. Fucking. Bannon. Well, I gotta hand it to him, he might be a vile repulsive human being, but he’s also not an idiot. He called out the Nazis and Klansmen in Virginia as “losers” — remember, Bannon is one of the guys who designed the alt-right’s de-Nazification program (where they deliberately dump all racist and Nazi symbols), which was intended to make the alt-right “family friendly” even though its core believes are still pure white supremacist. Having all these losers running around waving Nazi flags and giving Nazi salutes must irk the shit out of him, even if his boss doesn’t seem to care.

So anyhow, on North Korea: “There is no military solution.” He points out that Seoul is within artillery distance of a huge mass of North Korean conventional artillery and there’s no effective military action that could be taken without 10 million dead South Koreans (and, incidentally, a huge chunk of our economy going up in smoke — we literally can’t make cell phones without South Korea anymore).

On China: he repeats the protectionist rhetoric that got Trump elected and that a wide swathe on both the left and the right agree with.

And he claims that he’s not getting shoved out of the Trump administration, that in fact he’s marginalizing or bypassing most of his critics there.

What to think about this? I don’t know. But I can come to two conclusions: 1) whatever happens with Steve Bannon, he’s probably the most dangerous man on the far right today, because he’s probably the smartest. And 2) he enjoys burning shit down. He’s damn the torpedoes full speed ahead.

Of course, if he ends up running aground on his own torpedoes, that might be an end that he didn’t foresee….

Because there’s no difference between Nazis carrying shields and pipes and wearing helmets, and people who punch Nazis.

Seriously. That was his argument. That it was okay for Nazis to beat the shit out of people because the “alt-left” (antifa?) started it by punching some Nazis.

The President.

Defended.

Nazis.

Because those nasty antifa attacked peaceful white supremacists, as this photo proves:

Fuuuuuuuck.

Y’know, about these anti-fascist “antifa”, I don’t think their tactics are necessarily good or wise, but I can’t find it in me to condemn people who punch Nazis, no matter how much the Nazis whine about being punched. That’s the difference between me and the Orange Racist Russian Stooge, an apple that apparently didn’t fall far from the tree.

I swear, I go out of town on vacation, getting some well-earned rest deep in the Sierra Nevada well away from anything resembling the Internet, cellular service, frantic calls from my boss that things aren’t working, and so forth, and what the fuck happens?

Nazis.

Goddamn fucking Nazis.

Even Attorney General Jeff KKK Sessions is appalled and called the attack on anti-racism protesters an act of domestic terrorism.

Meanwhile a 32 year old paralegal, Heather Heyer, is dead and a lot of people injured. And James Alex Fields, Jr., the 20 year old neo-Nazi who slammed his car into the mass of protesters, has been charged with murder. Meanwhile His Fraudulency Donald the Trump was restrained in what he said about the attack, not name-checking neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Because the Orange Racist Pussy Grabber didn’t want to piss off one of his core constituencies, I guess. Because these racist asswipes were chanting “Heil Trump!” and displaying Nazi flags alongside Trump campaign posters as they marched around attacking protesters.

Here’s a hint: If you gotta restrain what you say in order to avoid pissing off fucking NAZIS, you ain’t on the side of what’s right and good.

Just sayin’.

Nazis. goddamn fucking Nazis. Again. Sheesh.

Jill Stein defends Russia, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, and racist Trump voters.

Yet I still come across leftists who defend voting for Jill stein rather than Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election that elected Donald Trump as the Larcenist In Chief. I don’t even bother engaging with those people anymore. It’d be different if the Purity Ponies ever had any new arguments to bring to the table. But it’s all corrupt this, played hardball politics that, took wrong position on some policy near and dear to them even though the Democratic Party as a whole has their back.

And if you point out that being a Purity Pony means you lose, they just repeat it all again followed by the assertion that if Democrats just lose enough, unicorns will leap into the sky pooping rainbows and Paradise will arrive. WTF? In the meantime, Republicans weren’t too happy with Trump (he only won maybe 1/3rd of the Republican primary vote, the rest was split between the 11 Dwarves though so he won a plurality), but they got out and voted for him. And the Purity Ponies seem *happy* with that? WTF?

Fuck Jill Stein.

With a ten foot pole.

With spikes on it.

And bathed in habanero pepper sauce.

That is all.
