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....

Supreme Court blocks Democrats from getting Robert Mueller's investigation's grand jury material

The Supreme Court on Wednesday temporarily prevented the House of Representatives from obtaining secret grand jury testimony from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

The court's unsigned order keeps previously undisclosed details from the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election out of the hands of Democratic lawmakers at least until early summer. The court will decide then whether to extend its hold.

The federal appeals court in Washington ruled in March that the documents should be turned over because the House Judiciary Committee´s need for the material in its investigation of President Donald Trump outweighed the Justice Department's interests in keeping the testimony secret.

Of course they did. They do not do democracy or transparency. That is what 3 1/2 years of Trump does.

There are so many layers of wrong in this protest sign that I cannot even

The image this woman chose to illustrate her oppression is Anastácia, an enslaved African in 1700s Brazil. Her mistress ordered that iron spike torture device put to deform her face and squeeze her neck out of rage and jealousy that her husband wouldn't stop raping Anastácia.


Muzzles are for dogs and slaves?!?! Are you kidding me. Can you imagine what she googled to find that picture? For sure it was not Anastácia - doubt she would have ever had any interest in learning about the history of slavery... maybe just black people in masks. Cause slaves.

The white supremacy and racism in this sign is off the scale. And truly...






Why do right wingers enjoy being lied to all the time?

Here in the UK two of the Prime Ministers favourite slogans have been “Take back control” and “Get Brexit done”… his right wing mantra on which he placed his bets for the referendum and the last general election. And they worked. Sadly. It was bullshit, bluster and bollocks of course. Yet another thing Boris has in common with Trump. The US is the sick man of the world and the UK is the sick man of Europe in regard to this pandemic and their knee jerk reaction is to just fucking lie straight to our faces. Gaslighting costs lives during Covid times and as the body count rises the fact that they have any support at all, from anyone is mind blowing. In this time of crisis BoJo can neither take back control or get Covid done.

One example in the UK currently is ministers saying, “Right from the start we’ve tried to throw a protective ring around our care homes … we’ve made sure care homes have the resources they need.” JUST A LIE. Not fact based at all, and thousands have needlessly died because they did the opposite of this, but I suppose they think their followers will swallow it. In the US yesterday Trump was calling the number of deaths a ‘badge of honour’ which is not just a LIE, it is also a horrific sentiment. They lie all the bloody time. It is their go to place. It is in their nature to LIE LIE LIE. One can only assume that anyone who supports them, votes for them, defends them, must really enjoy being lied to.

That thing that we all knew Obamagate was...


Graphic mine

SURPRISE!!!! 👀

Donald would BE Joe Exotic if his Daddy hadn't left him hundreds of millions of dollars.



The likeness is uncanny

Oh my, what is a right wing democracy stealer to do?



What a conundrum
I am sure they will try and find a way to reconcile this without once acknowledging their hypocrisy. Only white (well orange) Presidents should be above the law, even as Obamagate blows up in their fuck ugly faces.

Donald Trump just declassified an exonerating Susan Rice email and unwittingly blew up his own conspiracy theory

The trouble with hyping a phony scandal like this, and pretending to have corroboration, is that sooner or later you end up being pressured into releasing your supposed evidence. That finally happened to the Trump regime today, which released a Susan Rice email which it claims is proof that President Obama personally targeted Flynn. But instead the email says that Obama told Rice to handle the Flynn case “by the book.”

So the Trump regime just declassified a Susan Rice email that exonerates the entire Obama administration and blows up Donald Trump’s own conspiracy theory.

Emphasis mine

Of course everyone but the cult always knew that Obamagate was a complete nonsense, designed in part to distract from the fact that nearly 100,000 are dead because of his utter lack of care for the people he is supposed to serve. And of course because in the dark of the night when he compares his Presidency to Obama's he knows with every fibre of his being that he is a shit stain on Obama's shoe and that kills a racist fucker like him.

If you are a republican you are a de facto racist.

In the ‘post racial’ world of the most devout haters out there, they seemingly believe that by declaring they are not racist, somehow their actual racism becomes invisible to the rest of us, (and the whole you are racist for calling me racist canard that makes them feel better about their spite and utter nasty).

We have all seen the confederate flags, the swastikas and the signs at protests over the last few years, hell last week it was a really classy touch in Illinois when a bunch of wankers waved the nazi flags and wore nazi nasty in the face of a Jewish governor. The rot set in years ago, when the leaders of the republican party courted the vote of the far right rather than telling them to bugger off, that their views and behaviours were not welcome. And this is why we know that if you are a republican in 2020 you are a racist. If you vote republican you are saying that you are content to align yourself with nazi’s, white supremacists and ethno nationalists. If you are part of the party in any official sense, you are a racist, because you have done nothing to speak out and condemn the far right in any of the things they have done. At best you have stood by and let the racists takeover and been complicit with inaction because of power and profit. Still racist.

On the bright side though, there is a history of good men doing the right thing when it comes to the far right getting too handy with their hate. The confederacy got their arses kicked, Hitler and his fascist racist buddies came to a sticky end. As Oscar Wilde said, "All empires fall, there are no exceptions.'' This racist Trump Empire will come crashing down. And the racists know it.

They want us to be afraid.

They want us to be afraid.
They want us to be afraid of leaving our homes.
They want us to barricade our doors
and hide our children.
Their aim is to make us fear life itself!
They want us to hate.
They want us to hate 'the other'.
They want us to practice aggression
and perfect antagonism.
Their aim is to divide us all!
They want us to be inhuman.
They want us to throw out our kindness.
They want us to bury our love
and burn our hope.
Their aim is to take all our light!
They think their bricked walls
will separate us.
They think their damned bombs
will defeat us.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that my soul and your soul are old friends.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that when they cut you I bleed.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that we will never be afraid,
we will never hate
and we will never be silent
for life is ours!

I read this today and it resonated with me in the time we are living through and thought I would share it.
Can't let the nasty win. We own the light!!!! However much they try they cannot have our light. Period.

And the Shade of the Year Award goes to...

“I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group, and in his, shall we say, weight group: ‘Morbidly obese,’ they say,” says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Pres. Trump’s revelation he is taking hydroxychloroquine.

Emphasis mine

Hahahahahaha
Queen of Shade strikes again

He is an irresponsible son of the devil

Trump says HE has been taking anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine to PREVENT Covid-19 for 'a week and a half because good things are being said about it', calls warnings it is dangerous 'phony' and reveals he demanded it from WH doctor.

People are going to die, his stupid moronic followers are going to die, because he said this. He is not taking it, of course he isn't, but his mate needs a bump in the stock price for this oil snakesmen shit that he has been peddling. They will take it and they may die. Just that.
