Daily Gnuzes

Welcome to the Day of Thor, and here’s the Gnuzes…

A federal judge just blocked Texas’s attempt to punish “sanctuary cities”
H/T Vox
A bit of bright gnuz amidst the rash of negative energy going around…

And

The reality beneath Trump’s tax reform talk
H/T Politico
Ah, yes the old ‘trickle down’ bullshit from Ronnie Raygun resurfaces. This is where the one percent get to piss all over everyone else, and we pretend it creates jobs and shit as their urine drips all over us.

Finally,

‘We only kill black people’: Georgia cop caught on video reassuring nervous white woman during traffic stop
H/T Raw Story
Well, at least he’s telling it like it is….And the alt/idiots deny that institutional racism isn’t still a real factor in this country???

Open Thread, hang in there, only one day left till the weekend. I’ve renamed Thor’s day to ‘AlmostFriday’.

Trump vows vigorous response after viewing Harvey’s devastation
H/T The Hill
Vows, vows, vows! How many vows has the prezidunce not honored. Let’s see…Two divorces, Mexico pays for the wall, grabbing female gentialia..oh wait, he never vowed not to do that… My CeriousSense tells me he’ll be looking for a great deal on previously flooded property to build another future failed hotel.
“There was something missing from what President Trump said, that’s the empathy for the people who suffer,” said Ari Fleischer, former President George W. Bush’s press secretary.
Apparently nobody told Ari that narcissist sociopaths have no effing empathy.

And, filed under “The Jobs Aren’t Coming Back”…

Study: a universal basic income would grow the economy
H/T Vox
As automation, artificial intelligence and robotics advances continue to make the concept of working for a paycheck obsolete, what will we as a society DO ABOUT IT?

Mark Halperin: Trump Will Be ‘In A Lot Of Peril’ When He Testifies
H/T C&L
My money is on the prezidunce never getting into a situation where he has to testify. Either firing Robert Mueller or resigning are much more plausible…

Daily Gnuz – late edition

Flooding in Houston, and Nero fiddles with braggadocio regarding his electoral prowess in the Show Me State, the size of his tiny hands and other bullshit trivia.
Class act. Not so much. More like Class Pennywise the Clown.

Daily Gnudez

Just checking to see if you’re paying attention. No actual Gnudez used in this post. (most viewers now click elsewhere)…

Odds of government shutdown rise after Trump threat
H/T The Hill
Blame game again! It seems as though the only tactic the prezidunce knows is bullying. Perhaps he might take another look at Teddy Roosevelt’s description of the ‘bully pulpit’ and realize it isn’t actually about bullying…but then he’d actually have to read something, so,…never mind…

And

Agitated Trump lashes out at McConnell, Ryan, Clapper, media
H/T Politico
He’s losing it. Salient quote
“The morning missives come just two days after Trump told the crowd at a Phoenix campaign rally, “I don’t do Twitter-storms.””
Or, more aptly, has LOST it. If he ever actually HAD it. Onset of dementia…???

Finally,

More Alt-right Terrorism

Along with the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper calling not just the rhetoric, but the prezidunce out for his demeanor and actions. See article below…

And

Clapper questions Trump’s fitness for office after Phoenix rally
H/T Politico
‘How much longer does the country have to, to borrow a phrase, endure this nightmare?’

Finally,

Opinion | Trump is losing his war against the free press
H/T The Hill
Salient quote: “The facts of Trump’s words and deeds, not the reporting of those facts by the free press, are defeating Trump in the battle for support from the American People.

Trump ramps up war in Afghanistan, rejects timetables
H/T The Hill
Looks like the Generals are now pretty much in charge. Afquagistan will continue to furnish the body bags and no timetable means until we have regime change…Sheeesh.

And

Ugly is the keyword in this phrase and story

Trump To Outline Strategy For Victory In Afghanistan In National TV Address

And
