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....

Nobody is above the law?!?!?! They have literally NO SHAME...

BREAKING: I'm filing an ethics complaint against
@SpeakerPelosi
for destroying
@realDonaldTrump
's State of the Union speech.

Her conduct was beneath the dignity of the House, and a potential violation of law (18 USC 2071).

Nobody is above the law. She must be held accountable.


Toady fucker. She ripped up a paper full of right wing bollocks and according to the Trump enablers that means she is more guilty than a chap who tried to extort an election and has literally set the constitution on fire in the process. Guilty you say. These wankers are insane.

If nobody was above the law then this should be in our immediate future...


Heh. Chance would be a fine thing,

The slow creep of authoritarian rule need not be dramatic...

Impeachment was a health-check for American democracy. It is not well
None of this means that impeachment was a mistake. Like acquittal, a failure to impeach at all would have sent the same signal: that there are no limits on Trump’s actions. Impeachment at least kept the torch of the truth and the law alive. But now we must be very careful. They are about to – they must – come to try to extinguish that torch. Only an electoral repudiation so vast that it cannot be questioned can prevent them, and it must be won at a time when their power has never been less restrained by law or principle. The fate of democracy in America depends on it.

2020 is a year that historians will remember well for good or for ill. Do you think that the average American, going about their average lives, understand how vital their participation is this year?


How far has the Republican Party fallen? They are doomed, doomed I say (I command it)

How far has the Republican Party fallen? Eight years ago, Mitt Romney was just about the worst that the party had to offer. He's still the same guy he's always been. Yet now he's one of the best people the Republican Party has left.

Some people have short memories for sure. For once he did the the right thing and some are willing to ignore the nasty fucker that he actually is because ONCE he acted ethically? Huh. Don't get me wrong, I am delighted that he did not give Trump his complete white wash and tweaked the giant orange nose...but...
...Call me cynical but he is revered as a saint in Utah - he is not going to lose his seat over this, and there is a political play in it somewhere... with republicans, one always has to ask what is in it for them, and I predict he is waiting for the swing back from far right to just very right to jump onto the main chance again.

On the bright side Trump is losing his mind over this!!! Hehehe

Had failed presidential candidate
@MittRomney
devoted the same energy and anger to defeating a faltering Barack Obama as he sanctimoniously does to me, he could have won the election. Read the Transcripts!

Buckle up chaps this shit is going to get really tired really soon

Kirk Douglas, Indomitable Icon of Hollywood's Golden Age, Dies at 103

Source: Hollywood Reporter

The actor starred in such films as 'Champion,' 'The Bad and the Beautiful,' 'Lust for Life,' 'Gunfight at the O.K. Corral' and 'Spartacus,' to name just a few.
Kirk Douglas, the son of a ragman who channeled a deep, personal anger through a chiseled jaw and steely blue eyes to forge one of the most indelible and indefatigable careers in Hollywood history, has died. He was 103.

“It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103,” his son Michael Douglas said in a statement obtained by People magazine. “To the world, he was a legend, an actor from the golden age of movies who lived well into his golden years, a humanitarian whose commitment to justice and the causes he believed in set a standard for all of us to aspire to.”

Douglas walked away from a helicopter crash in 1991 and suffered a severe stroke in 1996 but, ever the battler, he refused to give in. With a passionate will to survive, he was the last man standing of all the great stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

That is truly the end of an era.
RIP

Trumps real SOTUS

Hehe, tweaking the great orange nose at every opportunity!

Political journalists boycott No 10 briefing after PM's aide tried to ban selected reporters

Political journalists walked out of No 10 Downing Street this afternoon in protest at the government planning to give a briefing on the EU only to selected reporters – banning The Mirror, i, Huffington Post, PoliticsHome, Independent and others from attending.

Reporters on the invited list were asked to stand on one side of a rug in the foyer of No 10, while those not allowed in were asked by security to stand on the other side.

After one of Boris Johnson’s most senior advisers, Lee Cain, told the banned reporters they must leave the building, the rest of the journalists decided to walk out rather than allow Downing Street to choose who scrutinises and reports on the government.

Among those who refused the briefing and walked out included the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg, ITV’s Robert Peston and political journalists from the Daily Mail, Telegraph, the Sun, Financial Times, and Guardian.

Solidarity!!! Good oh - they need to know that we will not out up with the same shot that Trump pulls. Stop covering them until all press get the sames opportunities.... they need the oxygen so I am going to suggest that the journo's will win this fight. When even the big beasts are fucking them over... it is a battle number 10 cannot win. Did they really think our journalists would put up with this shit? This is not Trumps America!!!!

Time for Cummings - cause you know this is him - realises that the fifth estate will not disappear cause as the most libertarians of libertarians does not like what they say about this administration. And this was a civil service briefing... not even a politic one. Ridiculous.

Greta Thunberg nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

wo lawmakers in Sweden have nominated Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize.

Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, who are both members of Sweden’s Left Party, said Monday that Thunberg “has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis” and “action for reducing our emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is therefore also an act of making peace.”

The 2015 landmark Paris climate deal asks both rich and poor countries to take action to curb the rise in global temperatures that is melting glaciers, raising sea levels and shifting rainfall patterns. It requires governments to present national plans to reduce emissions to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit).

Well done to Greta and as a bonus Twitler is going to go insane... first Obama and now Greta. Marvellous!

It is clear that the "R" stands for Russian (Stooges)...

Given their egregious behaviour in the hearings, in the face of overwhelming evidence of Trumps high crimes and misdemeanours, one may conclude, with increasing certainty that every Republican in running this election will be supported by a tidal wave of propaganda – all the way from their friends in Moscow. After all, someone has purchased their attack on democracy and the rule of law, and the pretend billionaire that is Trump could not possibly afford it. All roads lead to Russia… and if they get away with this one has to wonder who won the cold war after all...

GOTV and no matter who VOTE BLUE!!! Please…
