About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

We see you...



The conclusion of a 50 year strategy to distort democracy for power. They all own it even the never Trumpers - for them they just did not realise it would got THIS far.

Power hungry cowards... “In a word, I was too cowardly to do what I knew to be right, as I had been too cowardly to avoid doing what I knew to be wrong.” Charles Dickens


Conservative radio host fired midshow for pointing out Trump's corruption

Do not, under any circumstances, criticize Dear Leader if you want to remain a member of the conservative-industrial complex.

Craig Silverman, host of The Craig Silverman Show on KNUS in Denver for the past five years, was fired midshow today for criticizing Trump on the air.

The Denver Post:

Silverman was in the middle of a segment about Roy Cohn, Trump’s former personal attorney, when he suddenly was interrupted by network news, he told The Denver Post.

Silverman’s producer threw his hands up in the air, indicating it wasn’t him.

Instead, the program director, Kelly Michaels, came through the door.

“You’re done,” Michaels said, Silverman recounted.

I cannot and will not toe strict Trump party line. I call things as I see them. I see corruption and blatant dishonesty by President and his cronies. I also see bullying/smearing of American heroes w/courage to take oath and tell truth. Their bravery inspires me.

Well you know what they say... “Withholding information is the essence of tyranny. Control of the flow of information is the tool of the dictatorship.” Bruce Coville

Heh.

Robert Reich: Warren doesn't just frighten billionaires - she scares the whole establishment

The denizens of corporate board rooms, C-suites and Wall Street do not regard Bernie Sanders as a threat because they do not believe he has a chance of being nominated. But they are panicked by Elizabeth Warren.

Financier Leon Cooperman accuses Warren of “trying to demonize wealthy people because there are more poor people than wealthy people”. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg calls Warren an “existential” threat. Billionaire and possible presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg describes her tax plan as anti-capitalistic.

This is no orchestrated conspiracy. It is more a matter of affiliation and class, revealing once again that biggest divide in America isn’t between Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals or right and left. It’s between the establishment and the anti-establishment, the oligarchy and the rest.

Warren and Sanders have stirred up a hornet’s nest. Beware. Bipartisan stingers are out.

You know you have them rattled when...

The Whole World Is Watching And It Is Not A Good Look For Repubs...

What the whole wide world is witness to, right now…

Sincere, coherent, and well-informed public servants damning the Trump administration through honest testimony.

Democrats asking rational and intelligent questions, demonstrating gravitas, and, that they are both serious and worried about the breakdown of the rule of law under the Trump administration.

Republicans coming across as deflectors and distractors, ridiculous, profoundly immoral, deceivers and corrupters, only concerned with power and saving the Trump administration.

Cause Russia, Cause Trump Cult… LUDICROUS – and the whole wide world is witness to this.

One big take away for me is that the Republicans are demonstrating their complete and utter contempt for the intelligence of the American people. They must literally think they are simpletons if they think they will fall for their complete divergence from truth and reality.

On the plus side there have been enough grownups in the room to reassure the rest of us that there are seemingly not enough Americans who will fall for the republican bollocks this time round and that the rule of law may be on shaky ground but the checks and balances are working, at the moment at least… huzzah.

The tyranny of mad kings



I thought America fought a war with us to because you wanted to save yourself from the tyranny of mad kings. Fair enough, but now that is not working out so well, you can borrow the Queen if you want, just like the good old days. She is neither mad nor tyrannical like mad ‘King Trump’.
You are welcome. Hehe.

King Trump Canute be like..



[W]hen at the summit of his power, he [Cnut] ordered a seat to be placed for him on the sea-shore when the tide was coming in; thus seated, he shouted to the flowing sea, “Thou, too, art subject to my command, as the land on which I am seated is mine; and no one has ever resisted my commands with impunity. I command you, then, not to flow over my land, nor presume to wet ihe feet and the robe of your lord.” The tide, however, continuing to rise as usual, dashed over his feet and legs without respect to his royal person. Then the king leaped backwards, saying: “Let all men know how empty and worthless is the power of kings, for there is none worthy of the name, but He whom heaven, earth, and sea obey by eternal laws.”1
