Here is yet more evidence that the wingnut establishment are shameless scammers and grifters who view rank-and-file Republicans as suckers to be fleeced.

Those lying hacks, America’s Frontline Doctors, sold out their integrity, telling lies about COVID vaccines so they could separate the Trump chumps from their money. (And probably killed a lot of the Trump chumps in the process by causing them to get COVID.)

As the article notes, the founder of America’s Frontline Doctors, Simone Gold, got arrested for participating in the Jan. 6 Capitol rioting. So that gives you some idea of the classy sort of people you are dealing with in that group.

So Mr. Flag Jacket is looking at up to twenty years and the judge presiding over many of the January 6 cases has handed down a sentence exceeding what the government asked for, saying that there needs to be more consequences to trying to overthrow democracy than home confinement. So that was encouraging.

Trump Falls Off List of Wealthiest Americans

October 5, 2021 at 9:17 am EDT By Taegan Goddard 60 Comments

Donald Trump is no longer on the annual list of America’s 400 wealthiest people — mainly due to the languishing commercial real estate industry, Forbes reports.

“If Trump is looking for someone to blame, he can start with himself. Five years ago, he had a golden opportunity to diversify his fortune. Fresh off the 2016 election, federal ethics officials were pushing Trump to divest his real estate assets. That would have allowed him to reinvest the proceeds into broad-based index funds and assume office free of conflicts of interest.”

“Donald Trump is no longer on the annual list of America’s 400 wealthiest people — mainly due to the languishing commercial real estate industry, Forbes reports”

Well, first off, Trump lies constantly, especially about his accomplishments. So who knows if he ever belonged on that list.

And then, as a result of his bad decision to become the worst US president of our lifetimes (maybe of all time), instead of remaining simply a developer of glitzy, trashy real estate, he’s damaged the marketability of his name. Now, people aren’t willing to pay to use the “Trump” name on their buildings. In fact, tenants want the “Trump” sign removed from their buildings.

Flying Junior said...

The English word trump, meaning to get the best of or to beat, is derived from the French or Old English tromper, meaning to trick or deceive. There is no equivalent in the Germanic languages.

What an appropriate etymology for the name of a man who used his wealth and position to pull a fast one on the American people. His delusional followers have indeed been deceived into believing that this man had their best interests at heart. He is the Trickster Coyote. In this case that is not a good thing.

Multiple states still have bounties on coyotes, but one would be ill advised to take a chunk of Fergus' ear to fish and game for $75.

But is that any crazier than Republican orthodoxy these days?

Let's list some of the craziness of Dimocrap orthodoxy these days:

- Claiming that people can change sex at will.

- Claiming that race is a social construct, and that measured racial differences in traits and capabilities are the product of "racism", aka "whiteness".

- Ignoring those things when blacks are better at running and jumping.

- Claiming that American blacks, who are on average the wealthiest blacks in the world, are "victims of oppression".

- Claiming, against every shred of evidence, that the main threats to American blacks are cops and White "racists", when they're shooting each other by the hundred and more every week.

The people who believe this are brainwashed or insane.  The people who push these lies are simply evil.

Black Americans have 1/10 the wealth of whites in America. We can trace this back to the very unequal history in America. Is the gap smaller in other countries? I don’t know but inequality still exists in America and that is simply a provable fact. To deny this you have to be either unaware or a liar or both.

Once again, context. Maybe not main threat but still a threat. All threats need to be examined and mitigated wouldn’t you say? I mean we have racist trolls here everyday crapping on Black people when the biggest threats to them are their fellow whites.🤷🏾‍♂️

Wrong.  We can trace this to the very unequal racial and cultural habits in today's America.  White people don't waste huge amounts of their income on weaves, nails and rims.

There are many once-millionaire sportsball players who've gone bankrupt mere years after retirement.  Almost all of them are black, and they go bankrupt because they are spendthrifts.  The richest NBA player was nowhere near the highest-paid, but he saved and invested wisely.  Of course, he's white.

inequality still exists in America and that is simply a provable fact.

You will never make two different species equal.  It's not fixable and not to be a subject of guilt or even lament; it's simply a fact.

Sure, they waste it on other things.


"There are many once-millionaire sportsball players who've gone bankrupt mere years after retirement. Almost all of them are black"

Nope, many are white. Bad example because your example examines 0.01% of a population. Not a great sample size.


"The richest NBA player was nowhere near the highest-paid, but he saved and invested wisely. Of course, he's white."

I would say Magic Johnson, co-owner of the L.A. Dodgers, is doing quite well wouldn't you say? And he's Black. Michael Jordan is a billionaire and co-owner of the Charlotte Hornets and has a NASCAR team. Pretty successful no? Steph Curry is a multi-millionaire doing quite well wouldn't you say?

I don't know anything about this guy, but even without knowing anything, the odds that he'd better than MTG are extremely high. Grab any random person off the street and that person would probably be better than that raving lunatic.

However, I looked up her district, and its demographics/characteristics are 77.5% white, 40% rural, and with a voting record 28 percentage points more Republican than the national average.

Red

Which is the kind of district you'd expect it to be in order for them to have elected MTG. Anyway, while I'd like like to see her get fired, I don't think there is any way in hell that this district will ever vote for a black Democrat, no matter how much campaign money he raises.

No, because everything you’ve said is bullshit. There aren’t “millions” streaming across the border. That’s a fantastical exaggeration. There are maybe 11 million total currently living in the US, and they arrived over decades. It follows that the number that have arrived over the last 18 months of the pandemic is far less.

And they aren’t “unchecked.” It’s not like border patrol have all collectively decided not to show up for work. Most of the people they catch will be deported. A few will be granted asylum — after going through quarantine.

The COVID risk from the vast number of legal international travelers dwarfs any risk from irregular migrants at the border. But we’ve decided to accept legal travel, I guess, for the sake of the economy.

Sure slick, I believe you're rich and probably a genius too with PhD's in several highly technical areas too huh?

No advanced degrees, I was too bored with school to continue past my BSc and too interested in different things to specialize that much.  But I can tell stories about ways I've set bosses and co-workers back on their heels with insights into problems they hadn't seen.  I diagnosed one from a quick description and from the opposite side of the Atlantic, to boot.  Took me about 2 seconds.  It took days and several go-rounds with the customer before they understood that their test setup was causing the problem, though; the customer liason didn't want to just tell the customer outright and offend their touchy German egos.

Because it's profitable?

The Republican Party (the politicians) does include some real dummies, like Louie Gohmert, who can barely figure out which shoe goes on which foot. But it also includes plenty of reasonably smart people who are conning the chumps who vote for them.

They like the money. They like the status. They pretend to believe whatever is the lie du jour. And they don't care if the country gets ruined in the process.

There's nothing else to it. They're bad people. I've come around to the understanding that they mostly don't have any deeply held ideological beliefs. They just want to get paid. The end. The Republican Party is a gigantic confidence game. That's why Trump fit right in.

-----------------
First, PilotX is not whining when he says Black Americans have 1/10th the wealth of white Americans,he is simply stating a fact. Your attitude toward hearing this fact simply shows your biased thinking.
When did Blacks ever "start out ahead" and then "fall behind"? Blacks have been behind the eight ball ever since they were brought here as slaves. You should review the real history of the United States and put aside all the crap you were taught in school. It is your responsibility to educate yourself not mine.
Third, please research the actual provisions of the Affirmative Action legislation. You obviously do not know what is in it, or you would not make the claim that it includes "forced leveling".
Try to think outside of the box you are in. Pick up a book that deals with reconstruction and the rise of the KKK. Then read about the 1930s. Open your mind to reality.

"Korporate el Gigante AT&T is basically responsible for creating and funding magat shithole OAN."

As far as I can tell, no, AT&T has not literally "funded" OANN (i.e., invested in the company).

DirecTV does broadcast OANN from their satellites, however, and apparently that is how the network is able to reach most of its viewership and receive most of its revenue. AT&T owns a controlling share of DirecTV.

The latest buzz about OANN came out in a Reuters article based on information derived from court filings in lawsuits in which OANN was either a plaintiff or defendant. Apparently, OANN sued AT&T/DirectTV to FORCE them to carry their lie-filled propaganda network. They claimed that AT&T had previously agreed to have DirecTV do so, once OANN helped win government approval for the merger between AT&T and DirecTV (perhaps by lobbying Republican members of Congress?), and had later reneged on the agreement.

I would certainly like to hear more about the latter deal, if there was one. That sounds pretty sleazy.

"Most people, myself included, do not have a comprehensive understanding or even any understanding of how elections work,"

- Michael Gableman, the former state supreme court justice the goddamn Republicans in Wisconsin have hired to oversee their "audit" of the 2020 election, which will cost the Wisconsin taxpayers at least $680,000.

He started his "audit" with a big splash by subpoenaing mayors and election officials for "all documents relating to the 2020 election" when most of that is public information already:

Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell said Gableman could have easily gotten the information he's seeking without issuing subpoenas. He suggested Gableman is trying to appear as dramatic as possible even though numerous records have already been released to news outlets and others under the state's open records law. "They should have just asked for it," said McDonell, a Democrat who has been critical of Gableman's efforts.

So here we go again with the attempts at undermining the credibility of American democracy.

“He found them, but no goddamn Republicans voted for the actual bill”

Good enough for now.

But Democrats need to add “get rid of debt ceiling” to their urgent issues list. Right after voting reform.

I’m sick of Republicans threatening over and over again to pull the pin out of the grenade. One of these days they’re going to cut it too close to the deadline and accidentally cause the government to default. The debt ceiling is a provision that serves no useful purpose whatsoever. It seems to exist solely to allow Republicans to recklessly threaten economic Armageddon every time they are in opposition, like the attention-seeking stunt queens they are.

It was a political stunt by people who didn't want us to fight in world war one. It didn't work. We fought in world war one. That makes it a dangerous stunt that has been irrelevant for more than a century.

Here it comes:

In a letter to the National Archives obtained by NBC News, White House Counsel Dana Remus rejected Trump's attorneys' attempt to withhold documents requested by the House Select Committee regarding the then-president's activities on Jan. 6, writing that "President Biden has determined that an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interests of the United States, and therefore is not justified as to any of the documents."

Trump would be having a Twitter meltdown right about now, if it weren’t for the fact that he’s still banned for life from Twitter.

This neatly sums up the idiotic congressional debt-ceiling shenanigans.

The Dumbest Congressional Standoff Ever Is Getting Somehow Dumber

Everyone agreed it was a good idea to repeat this whole disgraceful circus act in two months’ time, putting the economy under threat as it struggles to recover from the COVID-battering it has taken over the last year-and-half or so. And all just so McTurtle can look like he is still important, now that he’s not in control of the Senate anymore.

POC fueled 95% of Texass pop growth over the past 10 years and yet magats did not draw a single black dominated district. While this new map may not give magats more seats, it stymies any chance Dems have to gain seats.

Likely apt to be this way in all red run, blue state financed shitholes.

Ex-NBA star Sebastian Telfair was seen leaving Manhattan Federal Court on Thursday, after he and 17 others were arraigned on a $4 million health care scam done by defrauding the league's health insurance plan
According to an indictment unsealed in the Southern District of New York, ex-Net Terrence Williams was the ringleader of the scheme to submit false invoices
Williams allegedly had fake template invoices emailed to the other defendants
The bogus invoices were noticed because they were allegedly 'not on letterhead.' Also, they contained 'unusual formatting' and 'grammatical errors'
Other defendants include Glen 'Big Baby' Davis, Sebastian Telfair, Darius Miles, Tony Wroten, Chris Douglas-Roberts, Jamario Moon and Shannon Brown
Six-time All-Defensive team selection Tony Allen was named with wife, Desiree

Mitch the fuck McConnell is in a snit over the speech Chuck Schumer gave explaining how the goddamn Republicans nearly crashed the economy on purpose out of spite.

Some in the media are buying it.

OK, three things: First, we already decided to fight in world war one, so the debt ceiling has been a relic of a dangerous, failed, political stunt for over a century. Kill it. Kill it dead.

Second and third, about the goddamn tone police:

2) "Fuck your feelings". gee, where did that come from?

3) Newton Leroy Gingrich.

Mitch? Take your crocodile tears and stick them in your eye, which of course is in your butt with your head.

“Is there a rule Republicans HAVE to be stupid?”

Or liars. They can be liars, too. So Republicans have got options.

I’ve no idea which applies in this case. Is he ivermectin-ing, because he is a dolt, or is he only pretending to be doing that, in order to please his audience, which is full of dolts?

Allen West is running for governor of Texas as a Republican, so he certainly can’t be seen doing anything smart, like acknowledging medical facts about COVID and treatments for COVID. That would make him unelectable!

I don’t know why these bozos feel so certain that if they provoke the wrath of the federal government, then the general public will take their side.

My guess is that if bombings of data centers by Nazis caused a major disruption to Internet services, most people would stand up and cheer when the Nazis subsequently got their asses kicked.

dinthebeast said...

Allen West is claiming to have received monoclonal antibodies in the hospital. Funny, I thought hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin were all you needed to beat a covid infection. Guess their minds change sometimes when facing their own mortality.
Not always, though, as many nurses have reported, some patients are denying covid is real with their dying breath.
