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....

Federal judge rules Bill Barr improperly redacted part of the Mueller report -- and must release them

Leopold and his BuzzFeed colleague Ken Bensinger report: “The ruling and an accompanying order mean the Justice Department will be obliged to unveil at least 15 previously blacked-out pages from Volume 1 of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, on or before November 2. In addition to charging decisions, those pages appear to involve discussions related to the hack of e-mails from the Democratic National Committee in early 2016 and the Trump campaign’s interest in those documents when WikiLeaks released them that June.”

Leopold and Bensinger note that Walton “rendered his decision in response to an 18-month legal challenge by BuzzFeed News and the advocacy group Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) to unredact the entire Mueller report under the Freedom of Information Act.”


Bet they don't. The DoJ with Barr in charge does not believe in law order as it pertains to them. Ever. So although this should be marvellous news it is going to be held up in court till well after the election.

Trump campaign reportedly worried that Brad Parscale will start squealing

But here’s the extra-delicious morsel. Apparently, in the wake of former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale’s recent arrest, TrumpWorld is freaking out just a tad:

Parscale’s public meltdown happened while he is reportedly under investigation for stealing from the Trump campaign and the RNC. According to the source close to the campaign, the Trump family is worried that Parscale could turn on them and cooperate with law enforcement about possible campaign finance violations. “The family is worried Brad will start talking,” the source said.

Well, why should Brad Parscale be left out of the fun?


OF COURSE he is going to talk. He has no reason not too. After all by the time he gets found guilty of any crimes the election will be long over and the Family Grift will have already exited the WH meaning he could not expect a pardon. It was always obvious that he was enabling this lot of parasitic wankers to feather his own nest, it is not like he was a true believer. So now his nest has been raided he is going to sing like a canary in a coal mine (see what I did there? ). I am very sure that Javanka and Junior will be more than a little implicated in the fraud. It is who they are after all. The only question is how quickly he will blab. Before the election would be mighty fine, just so the Grime Family can start to sweat as soon as possible about the knocks on the door as the FBI comes under new management.

EU launches legal action against UK for breaching withdrawal agreement

Source: The Guardian

The EU has launched legal action against the UK after Boris Johnson failed to respond to Brussels’ demand that he drop legislation that would overwrite the withdrawal agreement and break international law.

Ursula von der Leyen, the European commission president, announced that the UK had been put on formal notice over the internal market bill tabled by the prime minister last month.

Brussels had given Johnson until the end of September to drop the contentious clauses in the draft legislation, and Von der Leyen said the deadline had lapsed.

By seeking to unilaterally change the terms of the agreement signed last year with Brussels, the UK had failed to live up to its obligations to act in “good faith”, Von der Leyen said.

They don't care. They will not backdown irrespective of the impact on a post Brexit UK. The far right Empire throw backs who are now in charge fail to see that the longed for free and global Britain will become increasingly isolated from the rest of the world, as they breach international treaties and risk the Good Friday Agreement. For sure there is no way Biden or Congress will agree a trade deal with this government if they push ahead with this.

Watch this video of Biden going off on the Reagan S. Africa policy - tis a splendid thing!


Ladies and Gentleman the next President of the US, who does condemn supremacy.

Condemning white nationalism and supremacy is something he can never do

Think about it. Trump is the biggest fucking white supremacist in America. He always has been. He sees nothing wrong in being a racist or dividing the country on the lines of hate. He revels in the basest of bigotries and tropes. He is an intolerant, discriminatory, extreme, illiberal, narrow-minded narcissist. He is a morality and ethic free zone. He is as corrupt as he is unscrupulous. He is a cheating, crooked, dirty dealing malcontent, whose soul has been poisoned beyond repair by his wilful hate filled world view. All of these things he has in common with those he was asked to condemn at the debate.

To condemn the Proud Boys, or the Boogaloo’s, or the KKK, or the various militias, or the mass shooters who have already responded to his rhetoric in the deadliest of ways, is to condemn himself. They are him. He is them. Ugh.

It's not George Orwell writing the script any more. It's Lewis bloody Carroll.


This ludicrous, preening popinjay literally withdrew Brexit 'Party' candidates from Tory-winnable constituencies in order to get *exactly* this treaty signed in the first place. It's not George Orwell writing the script any more. It's Lewis bloody Carroll.

The “oven ready deal” was an international treaty — for the EU Commission, that is like the Bible.

Whilst the EU always acts in bad faith, all they are doing today is asking Boris to keep his promises.

It should never have been signed in the first place. twitter.com/bbckatyaadler/…

Further and further we go down the right wing rabbit hole of horror. Farrage literally voted for this in the EU Parliament.
There is no end in sight

BREAKING: Donald Trump's secret debate tape revealed.

[Speculation got a little out of hand — we were just monkeying around]

Steve Schmidt masterful take down of Trump's entire debate performance

"What this was tonight was a disgrace. It was a national humiliation. You saw a president who was unhinged, lying, sweaty, dishevelled, angry, petulant, and most important of all, completely incapable of making any type of argument about why he should have four more years. He appeared to be crazy most of the debate."

The biggest lead in any Presidential era!

a deliberate mugging of America's democratic process

This is the essential point. It was a deliberate mugging of America's democratic process orchestrated by a man heavily indebted to unidentified creditors and determined - for whatever reason - to take the country down with him.

The problem with the “ it was all a shitshow “ take on the #Debates2020 is that it ignores the real possibility it was a deliberate attempt to undermine democratic process. If you make everyone believe it’s pointless to listen/ vote / count when you are trailing - it’s job done.

Emphasis mine

Of course it was a shitshow. Trump made sure of that. But I do not think it will have the effect he was hoping for. With people engaging in the election a month out, if anything it will make people who see Trump for what he is even more determined to turn out and stand up to the fascist bully. Particularly female voters - bar the cult of course! He represents everything we loathe about toxic masculinity.

Graphic mine

The Best Biden Lines of the Debate

“Will you shut up, man?”

“That was really a productive segment, wasn’t it? Keep yappin’, man.”

“You are the worst president that America has ever had”

“The fact is that everything he’s saying so far is simply a lie. I’m not here to call out his lies. Everybody knows he a liar”

“It’s hard to get any word in with this clown – excuse me, this person”

“President Trump wouldn’t know a suburb unless he took a wrong turn.”

‘‘It is what it is, because you are who you are”

"He's Putin's puppy"

“Maybe you can inject some bleach into your arm, that would take care of it.”

“This isn’t about his family or my family, It’s about your family.”
