My position in a tweet

I've been a progressive socialist for three generations (my grandparents helped found the CCF in Manitoba, with JS Woodsworth and Tommy Douglas.) This crisis transcends all left/right posturing. If we lose the big fight, there will be no small ones left. Eyes on the prize - and make no mistake the prize is liberal democracy.

For more, check out Seth Abrahamson's megathread on Trump-Russia. Trump has been a Russian agent of influence since 2013:

The entire nation has been sensitized to sexual abuse, just in time.

Just in time for the release of videos, or at least credible stories about videos, showing Trump raping and abusing young girls. Members of the Five Eyes intel community are strongly rumoured to be in possession of videos that go far beyond the dossier's golden shower allegations. If this is true, then due to the outrage that has blossomed across the political spectrum, Mad King Donald will not be able to escape the nuclear fallout.

If I was wearing tinfoil, I might even speculate that the social climate was being groomed for this. But even if it's just coincidental, it's a wonderful coincidence. All but the most deplorable of deplorables will be ready to react with revulsion.

Has seen the tapes? VictimS?

Counterchekist has been right in the past. There may be a nuclear payload incoming on the Trump junta.

It sure looks to me like "l'affaire Franken" was timed to distract from the Trump Ocean Club story.

A Panama tower carries Trumpís name and ties to organized crime

This is a major, major story, and handily explains the desperation steaming from Trump's tweets.

So what's with Trey Gowdy tearing Carter Page a new a$$hole?

Have things actually shifted toward country over party in DC?

Good sign!

An amazing thread on the Carter Page testimony.

You'll die laughing. He'll die in jail.


1. Page 49 of the Page transcript. Dude... even GOWDY was like "Are you KIDDING ME? CUT THE BS!" 😂😂😂😂😂 This stuff is RIVETING.
2. OMG Gowdy's all "did you tell Trump ppl you were going to Moscow?" Page "err um zz rbirbri yeah. Multiple people". G: "WHY THE HELL?"
3. P "Well I wanted to be careful there were started to be rumors about Russia in press!" Gowdy "If you were being careful WHY DID YOU GO?"
4. P. "well I was trying to live my life!" G " If it was UNRELATED to Trump campaign why did you feel need to email them?" 😂 I am laughing .

And on for another 42 tweets. You've never seen anything like this. Apparently even Gowdy nailed him. And Schiff positively eviscerated him.

The Page transcript is here:

The role of Semion Mogilevich. I think this is important.

This is a desperately terrifying story about who is now running the USA. I think it's true - it's all well-sourced journalism. I highly recommend it.

This is not about Dems vs. Repukes any more. This is about the USA being taken over by the Russian mob under Semion Mogilevich. And the mob has a 22 year head start.


There is a man who controls our President. And his name is not Vladimir Putin.

On December 31, 1999, when Vladimir Putin was first elected, this Don controlled the President of Russia. Litvinenko committed his life thereafter to bringing him down.

Both Bob Levinson and Alexander Litvinenko hunted the most brilliant, dangerous, powerful, criminal mastermind the world has ever seen.

This is not hyperbole. This is SEMION MOGILEVICH.

Remember what happened to Litvinenko. This is why Mueller's investigation is looking less and less like a counterintelligence investigation, and more like a mob investigation. It looks like the highest levels of the US government are now controlled by the Russian mob.

A Samhain experience

My soulmate and wife died just over seven weeks ago. It was a conscious, medically assisted death to end the suffering of ovarian cancer. Through that we managed to achieve complete closure.

Tonight I went to the restaurant that prepared her final meal. I had the same meal she did - grilled scallops with rosemary, and a creme brulee. Opposite me on the table was the urn with her ashes, adorned with the amethyst pendant that was our love totem.

Tonight, when the veil was at its thinnest, I said my final earthly goodbye and surrendered the soul of my beloved to the Beloved. I pledged that tonight would be the beginning of my own healing.

No black cats, no witches, no candy.

Here's what happened:

I'm home. It was perfect. The restaurant staff all knew the score. The service was an impeccable combination of warm and respectful - and when I ordered creme brulee for dessert, they brought two, with two spoons.

I spent two hours meditating on the small altar I set up opposite me at the table - her urn (actually just a very plain discreet black box), the amethyst pendant, a feather for the wings that were a constant theme in her art, and a transparent green stone carved in the shape of two hearts, that one of her LA friends gave us as a reunion gift.

For two hours we reviewed the highlight reels of 45 years of ourstory - the transcendent, the good, the mundane and the ugly. I asked her how she felt, and she said she felt bigger than it's possible for us to imagine. She said the moment of death was a contraction to a singularity, and then an instant expansion out into an entire universe, but as the universe itself, not just a participant. It sounded very bigbangy.

She reminded me that it's not that I'm "here" and she's "there". She's here too, and I'm there too, as are all of us, as is everything. There is only this. She affirmed that even though her body died, nobody "went" anywhere - it's just our perspectives that shifted. Oh, and there is no need for me to "wait" to be with her again - I am with her always, as are all of us, as she is with us.

She says that you won't believe what it feels like to be a universe. It's a whole lot better than "taking off a tight shoe" as it has been described.

So, all in all it was a very pleasant dinner...
