Last night the Mueller team filed its sentencing memo with the judge in the case of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI. He’s been such a help to the investigation that they’re recommending no jail time. And though the document was heavily redacted, it makes clear that he has been very helpful in detailing contacts between the Trump campaign, transition team and the Russians. (more…) Read more

In the game of political limbo, the bar is never set lower than it is for Donald Trump. His behavior has been so consistently appalling that on the rare occasions when he doesn’t act like a toddler throwing a fit, his sycophants in the right-wing media lavish him with praise for it. Sean Hannity and Piers Morgan show us how it’s done. (more…) Read more

A member of the platform committee at the 2018 Texas State Republican Convention proudly declared on social media that he is a white nationalist. But won’t worry because that totally doesn’t mean he’s a racist, you guys. It just means he really likes Trump and wants to make America great again. (more…) Read more

I’m not quite sure what to make of it, but I know it kinda makes my skin crawl. For some reason, Steve Bannon was supposed to be the headliner at a conference on sex with robots. And apparently he’s lost a bunch of other speaking gigs because of it, because being a racist, borderline fascist wasn’t enough to keep him from getting those gigs but sex with robots is.

We’re used to seeing outrageous and absurd tweets from Trump, but the ones he put out on Monday are clear attempts to tamper with potential witnesses against him. He has crossed a legal line here and he he is making a case for obstruction of justice so much easier for Mueller to make. He’s basically handing it to him on a gold-plated platter (made in China, available at the Trump Tower gift shop). (more…) Read more

The Republicans have become so shameless that when faced with the loss of an election, they’re now trying to limit the power of the Democrats who won the election before they leave office in January in at least two states, Wisconsin and Michigan. They tried this in North Carolina a couple years ago too. (more…) Read more

I wrote yesterday about Trump’s empty boast that he had made an “incredible deal” with China on trade. The day after he made that dishonest claim — there was not deal at all, actually, just holding off on new tariffs while they try to make a deal — the stock market rose on that news. Yesterday, it had one of its worst trading days of the year when those in the market realized those negotiations aren’t leading to such an… Read more

If there’s one thing Trump just loves doing, it’s declaring that he has achieved some huge victory when he’s done virtually nothing at all. Such is the case with the “deal” he made with China at the G 20 summit, which is nothing more than an informal agreement not to increase the tariffs he’s already put on Chinese goods while they negotiate something else.

Four St. Louis police officers are facing federal charges after beating an undercover officer at protests that took place in that city in 2017. And before going out to patrol those protests, the offices talked gleefully about “whooping some ass” and beating people up, including racist language in text messages they exchanged.

So I got out of the hospital last night after my 4th extended stay in the last 10 or 11 weeks and 5th in the last 4 months. My hemoglobin keeps crashing, leaving me anemic and unable to do almost anything physical. But this time it was combined with an infection that spiked my fever to 102.8 late Thursday night. I ended up in the ER at 2 in the morning. (more…) Read more
