A reminder for Republicans calling themselves "NeverTrumpers"...

Trump did not come out of nowhere. He did not spring ex nihilo like Athena from the forehead of Zeus. The road that he's drag-racing on took years to pave.

The following are a list of requirements that you must have been before you can claim to be a NeverTrumper:

For at least a quarter century:
NeverNewt
NeverRush
NeverFOX
NeverNatRev
NeverNRA
NeverChristianCoalition
NeverFederalistSociety
NeverKoch
NeverMiscRichLooneyFundingPetIdeologicalProject
Bonus add-on: NeverJoeScar

For the past 18 years:
NeverRove
NeverBushBS
NeverCheney
NeverSean
NeverBillO
Never911ScareTactics
NeverIraqBS
NeverIraqOccupationFailure
NeverBushTaxCut (double that one after Iraq war launched. war+tax cuts /= fiscal responsibility)

(I am admittedly missing a whole passel of things that belong here -- JHB)

For the past 10 years:
NeverTea
NeverGlenn
NeverSarah
NeverPriority1TermPrez
NeverDebtCeilingGames
NeverStolenSCseat

(More missing stuff)

Failure to check ANY of these boxes means you are NOT "NeverTrump". You were fine with all the stuff that lead to him. Your only real problem is that you don't like his style.

Just thinking of a show where an outside power helped the illegitimate gain power...

Happy New Year.

Mueller Meets Trump, and Finally Puerto Rico Catches a Break

Ep 420: (Blaze It!) Trump Wins The Very Easiest Thing

News of the week for 12/22/17 Great, Trump got tax cuts for the rich from a Republican Congress. Not exactly a miracle, but don't tell Mike Pence and Ben Carson that. Driftglass gets five minutes to rant about David Brooks, and hooray! J20 Protestors are found not guilty and Twitter proves that Both Sides Don't is really catching on!

(skip to the 6:00 mark to bypass opening banter)

The same "credible news outlet"s that "credibly" flacked every RW claim about Hillary?

The same "credible news outlet"s that were just dying for a claim about a Democrat so they could retreat to their "both sides do it" comfort zone?

The "credible news outlet"s that have long been so eager for salacious news about a Democrat that if you pointed over their shoulder and said "Holy shit! Is that Bill Clinton's penis?" their heads would whip around so fast they'd snap their own necks?

Those outlets?

Fiscal Vandal Republicans. Use it every time you use the "R" word.

Hammer it constantly the way they hammered "tax & spend".

Episode 417: Burn the Lifeboats, It's Mueller Time



Michael Flynn and the GOP Tax Scam, plus holding the GOP accountable. NOTE: Blue Gal talks late in this podcast about why she's a #MeToo participant. It's not difficult to talk about and she doesn't cry, but people easily triggered by recollections of molestation might not want to listen. We talk Flynn, the terrible awful GOP Tax Scam, and the news of the week. More at http://www.ProLeftPod.com

Hmm ... Just days before an indictment, sTrumpets start a push to putsch Mueller out...

...and the Top Tovarisch is strangely silent about leaks lately.


Just Putin it out there.

Y'know, for people so incensed about stuff "rammed down their throat"...

...they both swallow, and lose, certain substances with amazing alacrity.

Exactly. Headline should read "...crushed by management financial games"

I'd love to see a study about how much job and wage loss that is written off as due to automation and offshoring has actually been due to (or triggered by) financial games by the people in control of the companies.


When this sort of thing comes up it's always instructive to break out the 1991 Philadelphia Inquirer series by Bartlett and Steele:
