Trump lobs bizarre tweet claiming 'not-as-crooked-as-Hillary' New York Times vindicated him in .....

....Russia probe



It was not immediately clear which New York Times report the president was referring to.

A May 16 report reviewed the origins of the Russia probe, but it did not offer any conclusions about the investigation. More recently, the paper disputed Trump’s assertion that the FBI planted an informant inside his campaign

What was discussed on Fox this morning?

Will they ever again be seen as credible moral agents after the last two years?



Morality Morality We don't need no morality.

All 34 of Chile's Catholic bishops resign in fallout from huge child sex abuse scandal

Of the 34 bishops who traveled to Rome, three are retired, including Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz, former Archbishop of Santiago, who has been accused of covering up cases of clerical sexual abuse, Crux Catholic Media reported Friday.

An estimated 54 percent of Chileans belong to the Catholic Church, 14 percent to Protestant or Evangelical churches, and 7 percent to any other religions, according to a 2018 survey conducted by Plaza Publica Cadem. The remaining 25 percent are atheists, agnostics, or people who do not identify with any religion.

None of their hands are clean

Trump Voters Are Whining They Want "Respect" Because They're Terrified Of The Blue Wave

Paul Waldman writes:

In the endless search for the magic key that Democrats can use to unlock the hearts of white people who vote Republican, the hot new candidate is “respect.” If only they cast off their snooty liberal elitism and show respect to people who voted for Donald Trump, Democrats can win them over and take back Congress and the White House.

Respect? From the day Trump won the 2016 election by cheating, his supporters had one message for the left: "We won, you lost. Fuck you!" They were really consistent about it, too. A full year later, the go to answer for Trump's incompetence and criminal activity was "We won! Get over it. Fuck you, snowflake!" But over the last few months, that brand of belligerence fell away to be replaced by incoherent threats of civil war if Trump were impeached. Now, the same right wing that spent over a year screaming their hate at the rest of us are very concerned that they aren't being treated with respect? Really?
------------------
The real fear is the same fear that lies at the heart of all white Republican voters and that is that their time is done. If they get creamed in a midterm where Democratic turnout is traditionally weak while the economy is strong and unemployment is low, even with all of the voter suppression and Russian hacking that they won't admit exists but are relying on to save them, the future of the Republican Party doesn't just look bleak, it looks almost hopeless.

They are absolutely terrified.

Great rant

His deals really are shit



The suckers that voted for this so called 'deal maker' have much to answer for.

You can keep your thoughts and prayers because you could fix this yourself, God tells America



God has rejected America’s latest set of thoughts and prayers following the Santa Fe school shooting, telling them he doesn’t grant prayers for things you can easily fix yourself.

As the latest school shooting saw more students gunned down in a place they should feel safe, God has shocked many Texans by flatly rejecting their requests to do something about school shootings.

---------

“But, if you’re praying to me in the hope I’ll help stop school shootings, then no – I’m not helping. Because that’s a job for your politicians. I’m here for divine intervention, not because America’s political establishment are too dependent on the gun lobby’s money.

“Look, it’s really simple – school shootings are really easy to fix, just get rid of the guns. Easy. You don’t need me. Gerry needs me, and I’m happy to consider helping Gerry – but you folks calling for me to help with school shootings need to write a letter to your congressman and start voting against the people that won’t make changes to your gun laws.

Lyft Driver in Indianapolis Kicks Gay Couple Out of Car After They Kiss



“We basically pecked, nothing out of the ordinary,” Martella, who is a student at Butler, told the paper. “He looked in his rear view mirror. He was yelling. We were stunned. We didn’t know the reason for it. He said, ‘I’m going to end your ride. I can’t have that in my car. I don’t have that here.’ … I was really upset. It was a big reaction for such a small display of affection between two guys.” Jensen agreed on the entire surreal nature of the sequence of events: “We gave each other a short kiss on the lips. … I was just surprised the whole thing happened. It just didn’t seem like it was real.”

That cannot be legal? Right?

Right-wing thought leader Jordan Peterson endorses "enforced monogamy"



A self-help guru, Peterson has spent a lot of time pondering the source of youthful-male rage, which manifested last month in a terrorist attack in Toronto perpetuated by a man who described himself as an incel--short for involuntary celibacy--a term representing a group of men and an online culture that blames women for their poor sex life.


Over the course of Peterson's two-day-long interview with the Times, the academic offered his insights on the relationship between man and woman and how feminism has polluted the natural order.

“The masculine spirit is under assault,” Peterson told the Times. “It’s obvious.”

One of Peterson's most controversial opinions in the profile is his recommended remedy for the virus plaguing the masculine spirit.

“The cure for that is enforced monogamy," Peterson said.

It was the type of assertion that usually precedes a laugh and a clarification that it was a joke. But Peterson did not say this in jest.

"Mr. Peterson does not pause when he says this," Bowles wrote of this specific interaction. "Enforced monogamy is, to him, simply a rational solution. Otherwise women will all only go for the most high-status men, he explains, and that couldn’t make either gender happy in the end."

Good grief... Can someone let him know that we are 18 years into the 21st Century and subjugating women to protect male egos is soooooooo last century

Notorious 'progressive' anti-Hillary conspiracy blogger has pivoted to pro-gun and 'Trump 2020'



He was described by The Washington Post as “the unofficial scribe of Sanders’s most hardcore voters” and he was invited on CNN and MSNBC to advocate for Bernie Sanders.

Goodman has since changed his tune. He now has a pro-Second Amendment YouTube channel and is now openly supporting Trump’s 2020 re-election bid on his Twitter account.
==============

Goodman pushed the scandal about Hillary Clinton’s emails, the debunked conspiracy theory about a uranium deal and even Benghazi. He wrote that Hillary Clinton was certain to be indicted for deleting her emails, and that she should therefore concede to Bernie. After Bernie lost to Clinton, Goodman urged Bernie to contest the Democratic convention and then, finally, urged fellow die-hard Berners to vote for Jill Stein.

Now, while he calls himself a “former liberal” on his Second Amendment channel, Goodman is arguing to fellow “progressive” followers that the Mueller investigation is bunk.
