Wingnut Welfare Queen SE Cupp Defends Sarah Isgur’s quest to be a Wingnut Welfare Queen

“”I know Sarah for a long time,” Cupp said. “And I’ve worked with her in all of her capacities, when she was at the House, when she was at the DOJ, when she was running a presidential campaign. And she’s a professional. She is very smart, lovely to work with. She’s loyal.””

The key part is loyal.

Wingnut welfare queen SE Cupp wants to make sure that Isgur gets some of that sweet sweet wingnut welfare money for going on CNN and being loyal to the right wing treason machine and its hunger for tax cuts. Cha-ching. Make it rain.

Isgur’s contribution will be to recite “both sides” talking points while insisting that everything is either the fault of the democrats or the liberal media. Like all the other talking heads feeding from the wingnut welfare trough.

Fox & Friends host says Ocasio-Cortez’s staff salary plans ‘socialism and communism on display’

Fox is acting in bad faith here. If AOC didn’t work to make sure every staffer had a living wage they would have called her a hypocrite. There is nothing she can do that FOX will not cover in the more unflattering and unfair way possible. Let’s stop pretending this is honest criticism.

“”Fox & Friends” weekend co-host Pete Hegseth said Sunday that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) move to cap higher-level staff incomes in order to pay every member of her staff an annual salary of at least $52,000 was an example of communism and socialism.”

New Hampshire Law Illegally Targets Young Voters Ahead of 2020 Primary

The GOP doesn’t want Democrats to vote and they are willing to lie cheat and steal to keep minority rule.

“By requiring people to pay up to hundreds of dollars in vehicle registration fees if they register to vote, the law unconstitutionally restricts voting rights and, in particular, targets New Hampshire’s students and young people to dissuade them for voting”

From: aclu.org

The ACLU is correct that this is a poll tax. New Hampshire is perfectly ok to take student’s money but they want to make sure those kids don’t vote in the state where they live. They are more than OK with anything that will prevent access to voting for people to challenge their illegitimate hold on power.

The Real Origins of the Religious Right

Worth reading ever word from top to bottom. There has been too much revisionist history from the religious right.

“it wasn’t until 1979—a full six years after Roe—that evangelical leaders, at the behest of conservative activist Paul Weyrich, seized on abortion not for moral reasons, but as a rallying-cry to deny President Jimmy Carter a second term. Why? Because the anti-abortion crusade was more palatable than the religious right’s real motive: protecting segregated schools.”

What Robert Mueller Knows—and Isn’t Telling Us

If this is all a hoax then there needs to be an explanation for why so many in Trump’s inner circle lied about contacts with Russia.

“Of course, one possible explanation is that the content of the conversations was completely innocent—totally normal directions and innocent chitchat about “adoptions,” sanctions, potential business deals, and geopolitical diplomacy. That could explain why Mueller thus far has only charged individuals, including Michael Flynn, Michael Cohen, and Roger Stone, with lying about those contacts, not the underlying behavior.

Yet the evidence against such innocence seems clear too, in the form of consistent lies, omissions, and obfuscations about the numerous meetings, conversations, and contacts with Russians throughout the Trump campaign, transition, and presidency.”

concern troll veterans of the drone war

Air Force budget documents show a 63 percent increase in Hellfire purchases in Trump’s 2017 budget and another 20 percent increase in the most recent budget request.

During the election I heard so many people concern trolls warn me about the horrors of the future Clinton administration. The drones they say. The dems used to be against war now they are all about drones.

The drone war was in decline under Obama. And now it’s growing. 

I don’t hear much about this anymore.

Ross: ‘I Don’t Understand Why’ Federal Workers Are Using Food Banks

No, he doesn’t understand. He himself is doing fine and can not imagine others who are not doing as well.

they will eventually get it, but if they never got it—you’re talking about a third of a percent on our GDP so it’s not like it’s a gigantic number overall

Wilbur Ross can not connect that tiny percent of GDP and actual flesh and blood humans.
