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....

Great example of the cognitive dissonance needed to continue to support Trump.... he makes Trump supporters sound so bloody gullible and foolish. Genius!


I believe the president. I have always believed him.

I believed him when he said he wanted to ban Muslims from entering the United States. And I believe him now when he says his travel ban has nothing to do with religious discrimination.

I believed him when he said Mexico is sending us its rapists and criminals, and I believed him when he said he loves Hispanics. I believe that Trump Tower makes the best taco bowls.

I believe that Donald Trump will drain the swamp and that his election has delivered us from the corruption of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

I believe him when he says there’s no reason for him to disclose his tax returns.

I believe him when he says there’s no reason to divest himself of any of his financial holdings.

I believed him when he protested that he wasn’t trying to get a security clearance for his daughter and son-in-law. And I believe him now when says he needs his family installed by his side in the West Wing.

I believe that Jared Kushner's deserves a security clearance.

I believe that only rank partisanship and media bias explain the skepticism about Trump's finances running rampant in the press.

I believe E. Jean Carroll is a cheap tramp who was asking for it. I also believe she is not Trump's type.

I believe Temple Taggart McDowell is a cheap tramp who was asking for it.

I believe Rachel Crooks is a cheap tramp who was asking for it.

I believe Natasha Stoynoff is a cheap tramp who was asking for it.

I believe Mindy McGillivray is a cheap tramp who was asking for it.
I believe that all of the other women who have accused the President of sexual assault are also cheap tramps who were asking for it.

In any event, I also believe that the President was merely engaged in “locker room talk” when he boasted of grabbing women by the pussy.

I believe that when you're a star, they let you do it.

I believed the President when he said he was going to repeal and replace Obamacare and I believed him when he said it was the Democrats’ fault that he didn’t repeal or replace Obamacare.

I believe the President that he’s a great deal maker, and I look forward to his negotiating new trade deals on my behalf.

I believe that tariffs will bring China to its knees.

I believe tariffs will bring Mexico to its knees.

I believe tariffs will bring the European Union to knees.

I believe tariffs will bring Canada to its knees.

I believe both that separating children from their parents is good policy that will deter desperate people from fleeing Central America and coming to the United States and that the policy of separating children from their parents is President Obama's fault.

I believe in a big, beautiful. transparent wall. I believe in steel slats.

I believe there is nothing unusual about Trump’s solicitude for Vladimir Putin.

I believe there is nothing unusual about Trump’s solicitude for Kim Jong Un.

I believe there is nothing unusual about Trump’s solicitude for Regep Tayip Erdogan.

I believe there is nothing unusual about Trump’s solicitude for Mohammed Bin Salman.

I believe that it makes a great deal of sense to tweet belligerently about Iran and also tweet one’s doubts and hesitancy about military action.

I believe that the whole Russia connection story is “fake news” designed to cover up an embarrassing electoral loss on the part of the Democrats.

...... heh

I do not like president 45


Border Patrol officials in Texas are turning down diaper and toy donations for jailed kids

Border Patrol agents in Clint, Texas, (the detention center where kids are reportedly sick, unclean, and caring for one another) are turning down donations of diapers and toys, as reported by Alex Samuels at the Texas Tribune. That’s right: The facility which reportedly isn’t proving enough food, water, or sanitary conditions for the children trapped there, away from their parents, also isn’t accepting donations of goods. Sick? Absolutely.

As reported by the Tribune, Austin Savage and a few of his friends went to the facility named in The New York Times article detailing these horrible conditions. They brought diapers, wipes, toys, and soap. As their story continues, however, Border Patrol agents ignored them—and their $340 worth of donations.

“A good friend of mine is an immigration attorney, and he warned us that we were going to get rejected,” Savage told the Tribune. “We were aware of that, but it’s just the idea of doing something as opposed to passively allowing this to occur.”


Of course they won't take donations. That means they would actually have to DO something, anything, to help these kids. Not gonna happen!

For the record

Well he still has 2 years to wreak havoc... how far he actually intends to go is anyone's guess but it looks horrific whatever way go go...

Taking one for the team?!?!

Cocktail lounge employee SPITS on Eric Trump: President's son slams 'disgusting' woman after she was taken into custody by the Secret Service following vile confrontation in Chicago
She inaudibly muttered something that sounded like it was anti-Trump before spitting at the president's son.

Secret Service agents then took her into custody in handcuffs, but Eric decided not to press charges and she was released.


Now - I do not advocate violence of any sort - but gotta tell ya - the more they realise how despised they are, the better of we will all be. And also - how magnanimous - about not getting her charged - what exactly where the Secret Service going to charge her with - reasonably understandable lack of judgement in the face of Nazi provocation????

Media trust is at an all-time low among US conservatives. Liberals are a different story

The trust divide between liberal (self-identifying as left-wing) and conservative (self-identifying as right-wing) Americans has grown sharply since 2016. Donald Trump’s hostile campaign against the news media built on a small trust gap between liberal and conservative Americans that already existed in 2015. Back then, 35 per cent of Americans who self-identify as left-wing said that they trust most news most of the time, compared to 25 per cent of those on the right.

But since then, trust among those on the left has risen 18 points, while trust in news among right-wing Americans has decreased from the already low point of 25 per cent to just 9 per cent.

This means that if liberal America was a separate country, it would have one of the highest trust scores in the world. Among the 38 countries included in the same survey, it would rank alongside the Netherlands – a country with high trust in politics and other institutions. On the other hand, if conservative America were a separate country, it would have by far the least widespread trust – even lower than South Korea or Greece, two countries with traditional scepticism towards media institutions.

When it comes to trust in the news media, the US stands alone in its level of political polarisation.


That is a really interesting for 2 reasons. Firstly, the obvious one if that Trump is telling these numpties that the media is criminal and the numpties are buying this cheese. Secondly though, do you think on some level that they know that the 'news' channel they listen too is complete and utter bollocks? There might be something in that?

But what does he paint on the side of his wooden bus?!?!

Make sure you watch the clip until the end. It is genius

Good grief...

Robert Mueller subpoena isn't a 'friendly' one: Intelligence Committee Chair tells Maddow

“I don’t think the special counsel’s office would characterize it as a friendly subpoena,” Schiff admitted. “He did not want to testify. He made that very clear. Nonetheless, they will respect the subpoena. He will appear. He’ll be testifying before our committee in open session. Each of our members will have an opportunity to ask questions of the special counsel. And the American people get a chance to hear directly from him and have their questions answered. So I think it’s a good result.”

Maddow went on to ask if the committee would be willing to call additional investigators and if those requests would be voluntary.

“I don’t think either he or he staff are eager to come before the Congress,” Schiff said. “I think they are doing so because they’re going to honor the subpoena that we’ve issued. In terms of whether there is a separately required subpoena, I can’t comment on that in terms of his staff, but, you know, clearly this is something I think from his perspective as a prosecutor, he’s reluctant to come, as a prosecutor ordinarily would be.”


He may not be keen -but I think we can guarantee he will actually turn up and testify, which will make a refreshing change.

Buh Bye


Both NRATV and @NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch are over.

“While the @NRA may continue to air past content, its live broadcasting has ended and its on-air personalities — including Dana Loesch — will no longer be the public faces of the NRA.”

It gives one hope that extreme hate is not successful in the long run...
