Trump's 'kinda genius' move with striking auto workers panics Democrats

By Adam Nichols
Published September 20, 2023, 9:59 AM ET

Donald Trump is causing panic among Democrats who think he “scooped” President Joe Biden by announcing he's flying to Michigan to speak with striking auto workers.

The trip is being seen as a “plainly cynical ploy to gain political advantage from the current United Auto Workers strike,” Politico reported.

And making a move to win support from a bloc of voters that’s traditionally Democrat has the party worried.


This article and its first sentence is well full of it....instead of gaslighting the situation....it should have said that Trump is a full fledge scab freeloading jerk.....he hired scabs to tear down a building in New York that had historical facades and interior, he has stiffed workers and private contractors....he is a dead beat and if any union members is pissed off about electric cars....ask yourself do you support a scab or president/senator that supports union workers......

"The Pioneer Woman" Ree Drummond may have benefited from the Osage massacre depicted in the upcoming Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio film "Killers of the Flower Moon."

The lifestyle blogger and TV personality is married into the Drummond family, which began growing wealth through dealings with the Osage people generations ago in Oklahoma and are now among the top 100 landowners in the country.

But a recent report shines light on her family's part in that dark history, reported The Oklahoman.

Trump team already has 1,000-page manifesto outlining what to do if he wins White House: report

By Matthew Chapman

If former President Donald Trump retakes the White House in 2024, he will already have a policy team ready to go with extensive plans for remaking the federal government in his image.

That's because the far-right Heritage Foundation has already recruited a number of former Trump administration staffers to lay out a blueprint for the next Republican administration, reported Bloomberg News.

According to the report, Heritage has tapped several former senior Trump administration leaders, like former Office of Management and Budget chief Russell Vought, White House deputy chief of staff Rick Dearborn, former Office of Legislative Affairs director Eric Ueland, and former Trump adviser John McEntee lay out policy proposals for Trump taking office a second time.


If anyone thinks that Citizens United and the assholes that helped implement that Fascists BS and that money is free speech it is not.....they have decided all by themselves to write a 1000 page doctrine to explain that they are fascists and Citizen United is helping them achieve that goal for the authoritative state....

Boebert On Beetlejuice-Gate: I Have 'An Animated Personality'

That's a weird way to frame it.

By Conover Kennard — September 17, 2023

Controversial Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert tried to defend her latest scandal by blaming the media. She said that many things are happening in the world, and yet the media focused on the footage of her groping her male companion in a family-friendly theater while blowing vape smoke at a pregnant woman. Oh, and her boyfriend was all over her new breasts. But sure, it's the media's fault.

"We just had Kevin McCarthy, the Speaker of the House, announce an impeachment inquiry yesterday," BoBo said. "We're facing a government shutdown and trying to fund the federal government."

"We have a wide-open southern border," she falsely said. "We have Zelenskyy threatening to send refugees here."


What you did in the Denver Buell theater at a public venue that was recorded by the theater security .... I just don't think its "Animated Personality" ....its what some call "lewd acts".......maybe .....
I just wonder if there is a law on the books for what was seen in Colorado, across the country and in Denver County.....there probably is.....

Bob Iger's grand plan for Disney is moving fast with reported talks to sell ABC

Madeline Berg and Lucia Moses Sep 15, 2023, 12:14 PM EDT

Bob Iger continues to shake things up at the House of Mouse, and his next move could be selling the company's flagship broadcast network ABC, all but spelling out the end of the broadcast era as we know it.

Disney is in talks with Nexstar Media Group, the country's largest TV station owner, to sell the ABC network and stations, Bloomberg reported, citing people with knowledge of the discussions.

"While we are open to considering a variety of strategic options for our linear businesses, at this time The Walt Disney Company has made no decision with respect to the divestiture of ABC or any other property and any report to that effect is unfounded," a Disney spokesperson said in a statement responding to the report.


This reminds me articles of media groups buying up newspapers and then shutting them down and laying off staff.......

Lauren Boebert's Beetlejuice companion owns pro-LGBT bar that hosted a drag show:

By David McAfee
Published September 16, 2023, 7:07 PM ET

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is getting some heat after video footage showed her in close contact with a male companion at a Beetlejuice musical from which she was booted after allegedly vaping in front of a pregnant woman. That companion is reportedly the owner of a pro-LGBT bar that has hosted a drag show.

Boebert has already been skewered by fellow Republicans for not living up to her "family values" promises, and there have been questions about what was in the vape she ultimately admitted smoking.

Now, there are new details being reported about who she was with.


Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance rips 'inane' Trump apart after 'unconscionable' attack

By Tom Boggioni
Published September 11, 2023, 7:49 AM ET

Taking to her Substack column "Civil Discourse," former U.S. Attorney and current MSNBC legal analyst Joyce Vance fired back at Donald Trump after he singled her out by name in a Truth Social post.

Late last week the now 4-times indicted loser of the 2020 presidential election lashed out at Vance and other legal commentators who have weighed in on the possible use of the 14th Amendment to keep ban him from running from office due to the Jan. 6 insurrection he inspired.

As Trump wrote, “The group suing me in Colorado to ridiculously try and Unconstitutionally keep me off the ballot (I am leading against DeSanctimonious by almost 50 points, and beating Crooked Joe, BIG!), is TRUMP DERANGED ‘CREW,’ composed of many slime balls & groups like Norm Eisen through Brookings or Just Security, Andrew Weissmann, Joyce Vance, et al. They are, perhaps illegally, working with Weissmann acolyte Lisa Monaco at ‘Injustice.’ I have been beating them for years, including Impeachments. MAGA!!! "


Oh My Dawg! It's A Miracle!

You're gonna want your tissues for this one!

By Chris capper Liebenthal — September 10, 2023

Sammi the dog had a degenerative condition in his neck and he suddenly became. quadrapalegic. His family brought him to California Animal Rehabilitation in Santa Monica, California, where he underwent surgery and physical therapy. When Jane, Sammi's momma, came in for a visit, well, this is why you will want your tissues. Jane's reaction to seeing Sammi walking around the corner on his own volition and wagging his tail off is well worth the price of admission. But the best part is Sammi just showing off and acting like it ain't nothing but a thing.

And whoever it is that keeps coming in here, cutting onions, please knock it off.

Memory Lane: That Time Cleta Mitchell Got Utterly Humiliated

Reading the news that the Fulton County grand jury recommended GOP chaos demon Cleta Mitchell for indictment reminded me of this.

By Susie Madrak — September 10, 2023

Among the list of those recommended for indictment by the Fulton County Grand Jury, but not indicted--at least as of yet--is the infamous Cleta Mitchell. If you don't know who Cleta Mitchell is, let's just say she is like a Forrest Gump of GOP evil, popping up anywhere cheating, corruption or treason rears its head in the party, from Tom DeLay to the NRA, CPAC to Trump's attack on our elections.

But for now, let's just enjoy her public humiliation at the hands of Cliff Schecter, Democratic consultant/ad writer for President Biden, fundraiser for Democratic candidates and causes, bestselling author and now with an awesome YouTube Channel.

So let's take the time machine back to this MSNBC debate in 2006. Cleta, whose party was embroiled at the time in the Jack Abramoff scandals probably thought she'd get some wimpy Dem to debate on MSNBC. Instead, she got Cliff, and he didn't get the note about Democrats being nice.
