Pinko repubes* are a total disgrace

I'm just sayin...Pinko republican socialist welfare handouts to the farmers they screwed over with their stupid tariff-trade war ploy, using our tax money, defines them for all time as "Anti-conservative welfare republicans*" or Pinko repubes for short.

The 2018 Farm Bill is a crisis of democracy

From The Hill:

"The social contract between our government and its people is hanging on by a thread. If the 2018 Farm Bill is any indication of the strength of that last thread, we are in trouble.

"With its origins in the New Deal, the Farm Bill’s original three goals were to keep food prices fair for both farmers and consumers, ensure an adequate food supply and protect and sustain the country’s natural resources. The current iteration seeks to dramatically increase food insecurity by weakening SNAP, a proven nutritional lifeline, harming working families and slashing support for small scale and sustainable farmers..."

"...Why does this matter? The Farm Bill no longer sits on a three-legged stool of just economic, nutrition and environmental policies. Instead it props up false solutions to hunger by supporting the overproduction of commodities and intensive pesticide use while causing climate change and illustrating the insidious reach of corporate influence on our policymakers..."

Are we taxpayers funding another republican Billionaire Play Day today?

Where is republican Comrade Dirty Donny* today? What are his instructions from Moscow?

I assume the republicans are squandering another $3 million or so of our hard-earned tax dollars to pamper him with yet another golden gourmet golf goof off? And if he's squandering our money on golf, then its a safe casino bet that a cabal of republican fat cat comrades is there with him to sop up the public gravy. Deplorable.

Speculation free-for-all: What really happened in secret Helsinki collude-a-thon?

I've got a feeling (a feeling approaching near certitutide) that something dark, dank, and SNEAKY happened in that occulted meeting between Pooty Poot & Dirty Donny* (R). And I've got a strong hunch that whatever it is, it ain't something good for democracy, truth, or justice.

You can bet your bippy something UNKNOWN went down. What do you suppose it might be? Free hat tips for Informed Speculations.

Pooty Poot sends flowers and champagne to KGOP republicans*

To thank them for so submissively following the kremlin's plans to undermine American democracy, to divide the US with racial animosity, to smash American alliances, and to meekly surrender the Balkans.

The Senate report the republicans don't want America to know about

OK, I changed the Washington Monthly headline a bit for this thread title, but the message is the same. In a nutshell, the Senate Intelligence Committee agrees with all of the US Intelligence Agencies: Putin ordered ACTS OF WAR against the USA.

Those attacks against America helped Trump win in 2016, and the attacks are onging, amping up now with more ACTS OF WAR against America and American democracy. Putin and russia are WAGING WAR against America right frigging now. Meanwhile, I am impelled to note the obvious: the republicans are rolling over, licking their chops, refusing to defend American democracy, and distracting themselves by counting their godforsaken and ill-gotten "tax breaks."

The Report the Senate Doesn’t Want You to See
by Martin Longman July 5, 2018

"The committee found that Russia did indeed intervene in the election with the express purpose of hurting Hillary Clinton’s candidacy or potential presidency and of helping Donald Trump win. It found that the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) that was released in January 2017 was based on solid information and defensible analytical assumptions.

"It found that Russia did in fact penetrate multiple state and local electoral boards and they reported that their subsequent investigation had unearthed further evidence of this. It noted the ICA’s previous reporting in Russian troll farms and announced “the Committee’s investigation has exposed a far more extensive Russian effort to manipulate social media outlets to sow discord and to interfere in the 2016 election and American society.”

"It agreed that all of this was personally ordered by Vladimir Putin..."

Velveeta-scarfing republican Surrender Monkeys prepare to weaken America further

We just had the #ShanghaiSurrender where the republicans gave up all kinds of US power and influence, and got a vaguely worded Nothing Burger in return.

Now the republicans are sending their Draft-Dodger-in-Chief to the #StinkyInHelsinki to once again kiss pooty poot's ass, and listen closely while he tells Dirty Donny what exactly the republicans should surrender this time to further weaken America.

Hello? The Senate Intelligence Committee just formally agreed with all US Intelligence Agencies that Putin ordered the ACTS OF WAR against America, and those very same ACT OF WARs by russia against America are ongoing. Disgustingly cowardly and anti-American for republicans to go the Surrender Monkey route.

Vote now: where would you like your tax dollars squandered?

A. Please squander my hard-earned tax dollars on $million-dollar golden, gourmet golf outings for the republican billionaire* who refuses to spend his own money on his own luxuries.

B. Please squander my hard-earned tax dollar$ on payback payola for republican farmers who are getting screwed by the stupid and dangerous republican trade war.

* aka Dirty Donny, republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief
