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….

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….

Apparently if you are a male employee of Fox News, you are required, REQUIRED I say, to sexually harass at least three of your co-workers.

We Democrats ran Anthony Weiner out of politics and into a 20 month sentence in Club Fed for shit like that. Like, every single Democrat in power blasted him as a creep and every single Democratic fundraiser cut him off. Let’s see what the tighty righties are sayin’ about Eric Bolling, serial sexual harasser:

[CRICKETS]

Alrighty, then!

They were just trying to appeal to affluent black housewives. Instead, they opened a shitstorm of right wing racist whup-ass on themselves.

Every single black family of my acquaintance has had to have “The Talk” with their children. Especially the affluent ones who grew up in liberal racially-mixed communities. Their teenage sons, in particular, had to be sat down and told they can’t behave like their white teenage peers. Because if they behave like their white teenage peers when pulled over by the cops, they will be shot and killed. Because if they behave like their white teenage peers and smoke a little pot behind the schoolyard, they’ll go to jail for the next decade, while their white teenage kids will get a slap on the hand and sent home to Mommy and Daddy. Because if they behave like their white teenage peers and buy a fast flashy car, they’ll be pulled over every fifteen minutes by the cops on suspicion of auto theft and asked to prove that they own that car, or worse yet, arrested for auto theft and forced to hire a lawyer to prove their innocence. And don’t go into certain parts of town where white cracker kids hang out, and *especially* don’t go into their bars. And don’t expect to get served if you walk into a diner in small-town America and all you see are white faces. And so forth.

That’s life for black Americans. That’s the life that this commercial refers to. The Talk that this commercial refers to.

According to the bigots, white people are oppressed in America and black people are just making up all these things. Thing is, with all their racist rioting, all they’re doing is proven the point — that black people encounter bigotry on a daily basis, mostly from people who claim they’re not bigots.

But then, we’re talking bigots here, so I guess expecting intelligence from them would be like expecting flight from a cow.

Ain’t seen no cow flops fallin’ from the sky.

Just sayin’.

Right wing terrorists blow up a bomb at a Minnesota mosque.

Hypocrites, much?

Gregory Burleson gets sentenced for pointing a gun at Federal employees.

Sixty-eight years. And you have to serve at least 3/4ths of your sentence in Federal prisons, so he’s not going to get out until… well, he’s 53, so let’s just say “dead.”

Good.
