While the Goopers celebrate McCabe's firing...

Lord Dampnut took several "victory laps" maligning Andrew McCabe this weekend after the controversial firing. Meanwhile, as #45 and the Goopers celebrate their Pyrrhic victory, very good things are happening for the Democrats. 

I'm quite pleased that #45 and his lackeys are not paying attention to this:

NBC News/WSJ poll: •Dems +12 with independents in 2018 •Voters 65+ prefer Dems by +11 •Women are +23 Dem •18-34 are +30 Dem •Dems get whites with college degree +13 •59% of GOPers say they’re loyal to Trump, not Republican Party. 36% loyal to GOP

But McCabe may get the last Huzzah!

BREAKING: AP learns fired FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe maintained personal memos regarding President Donald Trump.


What is the definition of a small-minded, mean, ungenerous, shabby, spiteful and petty little worm?

Answer:  TRUMP?

DING! DING! DING!  We have a winnah!

Trump celebrates firing of McCabe and denying him his pension with late night tweet calling it a ‘great day’

 Donald Trump celebrated the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe just after midnight, hopping on Twitter and calling it a “great day.” Late Friday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe at the last minute, which in effect will deny the 21-year veteran of the FBI his pension after years of service to the country.


“I firmly believe that this is an ongoing effort to undermine my credibility because of the work that I did on the Russia case, because of the investigations that I oversaw and impacted that target this administration,” Andrew McCabe said.

Here is McCabe's statement to the Swine-in-Chief's petty form of revenge.

Tweet from Republican Pundit, Rick Wilson:

If you aren't seeing the echoes of 1974, you're not paying attention. Don't worry about McCabe's pension. He's going to make more off his book deal than his pension. And he's liberated to speak the truth.

Tweets from Republicans Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace (There ARE sane and honorable Republicans in this country. None of them, however, are Trump supporters.):

 Steve Schmidt @SteveSchmidt

This American citizen demands to know the precise evidence that led to the termination of a 21 year FBI senior leader with a reputation for probity and rectitude two days before his reaching pension eligibility. Disgraceful. This is an abuse of power and pure bananarepublicanism   

Nicolle Wallace Nicolle Wallace @NicolleDWallace ·  

The fix was in from Donald Trump when he tweeted 90 days ago his threat about McCabe’s pension. This is a complete disgrace. Sure to exacerbate concerns among “the generals” about his conduct in office

When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you.

Trump's America

People who visit this blog also know about the far right blogs that advocate the genocide of all Muslims; people on those blogs who advocate throwing American citizens who practice their Muslim faith out of their own country, and people who refer to Muslims as "vermin." There's no difference between them and the Nazis who advocated the same against the Jews and called the Jews "vermin" in 1930s Germany.

Now those same people have a hero in the White House who is a racist and who sought to ban people, because of their religion, from entering the United States.

The photo below was taken from Tahnee Gonzales' facebook page. She's one of the so-called "mothers" who trespassed on a Tempe, Arizona, mosque's property, took materials from it, allowed the family dog to pee on the property, all the while teaching her children and her fellow perp's children how to be good Republican bigots. The tee-shirt Gonzales is wearing in the photo shows a slogan that could have been taken off of a certain far right wing blog that's been advocating the deportation of American Muslims and/or the deaths of all Muslims: 

Image may contain: one or more people, sunglasses and closeup

The video below is the direct result of having that loathsome racist in the White House, representing America to the world. The people who voted for and continue to support Trump are the people in this video and the people who run and comment on their racist blogs.

We need to kick #45's sorry ass out of the White House and teach our children that what these miserable excuses for mothers did is wholly unAmerican and a blight on this once great nation.

The video is so horrible, one thinks it can't be real. But it is real, as real as the horror that dishonors the White House.

I hope they are punished but good for their criminality.

This is Trump's America:

Trump Brags About His Lying to Canadian Prime MInister Justin Trudeau


Lord Dampnut brazenly admits to being an unabashed lying liar. We sane folks know he's a championship liar, but it's good to see #45 admit it publicly. And with no shame.

Imitating the Canadian leader, Mr Trump reportedly said:

"Trudeau came to see me. He's a good guy, Justin. He said, 'No, no, we have no trade deficit with you, we have none. Donald, please.' "Nice guy, good-looking guy, comes in - 'Donald, we have no trade deficit.' He's very proud because everybody else, you know, we're getting killed." The president continued: "I said, 'Wrong, Justin, you do.' 

I didn't even know. I had no idea. I just said, 'You're wrong.'"

To the 30 percenters who support this stain on America:

You chose this porn-star-shagging liar as an example of Christian morality for your children and grandchildren. 

He's all yours.


Texas Republicans sticking their nose into people's private business again, trying to turn America into a Nanny State!  

The question is:  How will lawmakers enforce this new law?

Texas Law Would Fine Men For Masturbating, Require Rectal Exam For Viagra

Why doesn't the Religious Right start their Sharia-like religious enforcement of laws with Donald J. Trump? He's broken almost every Commandment, and punishing il Pancho would be so much more satisfying for the panty-sniffers than going after anonymous men and boys enjoying Stormy Daniels centerfold pictures.

What makes satire so funny...

is that it's so very close to the truth.

N.R.A. Proposes Having Second Armed Teacher in Every Classroom to Stop First Armed Teacher from Misfiring

"WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Hours after an armed teacher in a Northern California classroom fired a gun and injured a student, the head of the National Rifle Association proposed placing a second armed teacher in every classroom, to shoot the first armed teacher before he or she can do harm. 'Had there been a second armed teacher in the classroom to shoot the first armed teacher, this regrettable incident would never have occurred,' Wayne LaPierre said. 'The only thing that stops a bad teacher with a gun is a good teacher with a gun.' ”

The Kids Are Exceptionally Alright!

The Pennsylvania special election for 18th Congressional District

In a deeply red district Trump won by 20+ points in 2016, it appears that a Democrat will prevail. The outcome is still too close to call at this point, but even if Lamb loses to Saccone, this race should have been a walk in the park for the Republicans, and it wasn't, despite trump's campaigning for him and the millions and millions of $$$ the RNC poured into Saccone's campaign.

IOW, the Trump "magic" has disappeared along with his fake invincibility. Americans, and more importantly the change-over liberals who voted for trump, are fed up with the corruption, the lies, the chaos, the firings, the infidelities and porn stars, the resignations, and the ongoing criminal investigations into the most dysfunctional administration in modern American history.

This was an election that the GOPer, Saccone, should have easily won, that he didn't is a bleak omen for GOP in the coming House elections in November.

From VOX:

“These results should terrify Republicans,” he said. “Despite their home field advantage and the millions of dollars outside groups poured into this race, Republicans found that their attacks against Conor, including their unpopular tax scam, were not believable. 

There are more than one hundred districts more favorable for Democrats than this one and we look forward to competing hard in every single one.” Even with the race too close to call, the result doesn’t look good for Republicans, who have held on to PA-18 with an iron grip since 2003.

I deleted the Tweet because what Charlie Pierce says below is much, much better:

"This was the last gasp of 10 years of successful electoral chicanery in Pennsylvania, and the Republicans couldn’t boot their candidate home even with $10 million pumped into the district from the national party and from its vast reservoir of PACs and dark money. They couldn’t organize it. They couldn’t buy it. And they couldn’t steal it. That pretty much eliminates all possible ways Republicans generally win elections these days, and bringing in the president* for a last-ditch manic episode didn’t work, either. Not even the crazy was enough."

The chaos and instability of the Trump administration continues with SoS Rex Tillerson's departure and CIA director, Mike Pompeo, moving into the role.

President Donald Trump ousted his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson. 

Tillerson had faced reports of tension between him and the president for months.

President Donald Trump has asked Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to leave his post, The Washington Post reported Tuesday. 

CIA Director Mike Pompeo will replace him. 

Trump reportedly asked Tillerson to step down on Friday. Trump confirmed the news in a tweet Tuesday. Tillerson was on a diplomatic trip in Africa. 

Tillerson had faced reports of tension between him and Trump for months, and repeatedly denied that he was leaving his job.

But this could be one of the reasons Tillerson was booted. Trump doesn't like people who criticize his Russian pals and enablers.

Tillerson calls the poisoning "a really egregious act" and says it's "almost beyond comprehension" that a state actor would use such a dangerous substance in a…

And this tweet:

Omg. A State Dept official says Tillerson learned he was fired from Trump's tweet, per

And this:

"President Donald Trump’s personal assistant, John McEntee, was fired on Monday because of an unspecified security issues, according to administration officials who spoke with the Wall Street Journal.

McEntee was reportedly escorted out of the White House without being given time to collect his personal belongings, including his jacket, officials told WSJ. The White House declined to comment on the Journal’s questions about the firing."


 "Washington (CNN)Hours after his boss, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, was ousted Steve Goldstein, the under secretary of public affairs at the State Department has been fired by the White House. 

Goldstein publicly contradicted the White House account of how Tillerson was fired on Tuesday morning. Goldstein said Tillerson was officially notified he'd been fired from a tweet from President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning, and in a statement, said Tillerson had "every intention of remaining."
