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....

Senate fails to override Trump's veto on bipartisan measure to limit his war powers

Lawmakers voted 49-44 to support the resolution that passed Congress earlier this year, short of the two-thirds majority necessary to override the president’s veto of what he called a “very insulting” effort to curb his powers.

That bipartisan resolution said the president cannot commit US forces to hostilities against Iran or any part of its government or military without explicit authorization from Congress.

The measure stemmed from fears among both Trump’s Republicans and Democrats that the White House was at risk of stumbling into war with the Islamic republic.

He will not just stumble into a war, if he thinks that it will help him in November he will stride into it. Death and destruction in 3...2...1... And the fuckers that supported him on this in the Senate need to be held accountable for the war crimes that will follow.

The horror of this American making tea is...

I just changed my mind about Brexit we need out of EU restraints RIGHT NOW so we can ditch the Human Rights Act and bring back hanging IMMEDIATELY no lesser punishment is SUFFICIENT for this CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY or even go full mediaeval with hanging drawing and quartering—


Heh. The horror.

All the things missing...
Tea Leaves
Warmed Teapot
Warmed Mugs
Boiling hot water
Brewing of tea
I am befuddled

They are protesting on the streets of Beirut

The Lebanese Government locked down the country like so many elsewhere, but it seems like it is rather difficult to tell people to saty indoors when you offer no social security and then shut all of the banks so people cannot access any reserves they may have. Based on the reporting I saw tonight, the relationship between the banks and the government stinks to high heaven with each propping the other up using the people's money. As money is not currently coming in to support what essentially sounds like a Ponzi scheme, they just shut all the banks. So the people are being told, stay at home, but with no money and no food... as one protester said tonight, Covid may kill me, but starvation definitely will if things to do not change right now (para phrasing).

Two things come to mind:
1. I think we will begin to see social unrest on a hither too unseen scale in the the emerging economies. People will put up with most things but they will not tolerate watching their children starve.
2. Because Trump does not care for anywhere not America, watch Putin and China fill the gap in the chaos that may ensue/



Trumps Virus


Graphic mine

Covid should be called Trumps virus at every opportunity. He needs to be forced to own this.

It is almost like some things have barely changed at all...

They have taken privilege to the next level of selfish


Graphic mine

In the West it has been ever thus, marginalised and minority communities are held to a MUCH higher standard of behaviour than their white counterparts (and women held to a much higher standard of behaviour than men). People understand if they do not conform to those standards they are literally risking their lives. This is just situation normal right? In the 21st Century we still have a long way to go before any meaningful equality will apply across communities. But now they have taken it to the next level. Not only are they are not at risk of arrest, or death murder by cop, they are actively trying to spread a deathly virus that has a higher contagion and morbidity rate for those communities who are forever being held to that higher standard.

White supremacist selfish privilege taken to death cult level.

Who would have guessed putting narcissistic toddlers with a massive sense of personal entitlement...

...in charge would be so deadly?!?! Heh.



One might almost see a pattern... 👀 😒

If I am reading this right they are calling Trump a liar on testing, but he tweeted it anyway

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1257714716492722176

So Trump says 7 million tests, this site says inconsistent, cause they know he is talking bollocks... but get the libs? He is a fucking sociopath.

You know how prison populations are going to be gutted cause Covid?

We know that jails are bright red hot-spots for the virus, and we know that particularly in Republican states they have no interest in doing anything about it. The Prison Industry Complex is going to being having a cow about reduced profits as their populations diminish. Standby for aggressive police activity and sentencing at the high end of guidelines for the foreseeable future. Cause, you know, profit.

a 9/11 every day



At this point it is not a stretch to call him a bio terrorist
