Yes, as a matter of fact, I am a multi-point, big ass buck!

Daily Gnuz!!

Read all about it! Whatever IT is, today, Friday April 20th 2018

Giuliani Joins Trump Legal Team
H/T TPM
It’s been 30 years since Giuliani has been a prosecutor. Trump just needed another has-been recognizable name to fill the empty seats in the Oval Orifice.

And,
US school shootings rise rapidly in two decades: study
H/T Raw Story
“In less than 18 years, we have already seen more deaths related to school shootings than in the whole 20th century,” said lead author Antonis Katsiyannis of Clemson University.
And guns are more available than ever…

Finally,
LGBT rights group takes aim at Pence as Trump woes deepen
Pence could increasingly find himself the target of liberal attacks in a midterm election year.

H/T Politico
Pence will be the harbinger of “The HandMaiden’s Tale” if he winds up in charge of this mess.

Open Thread, for FSM’s sake, do something with it!

Tuesday edition, here’s the GNUZ

‘Someone should say a prayer’ for Trump’s aides
H/T Politico
The president has decamped to Mar-a-Lago, where he’ll have plenty of time to dwell on a barrage of negative headlines.
We’ve reached a point where ‘governing’ has ceased. We have a spoiled brat in charge of the Executive Branch, who can’t focus on policy because his ego is too fragile.
Sad.

And,
Retired Admiral Says Trump Is Causing ‘Extreme Discomfort’ for Miltary Leaders and Harming Republic
The president is destabilizing the nation. Just like a Manchurian candidate.
H/T Alternet

Finally,
Trump just blocked his own administration’s Russia sanctions
Once again the president is taking steps to make sure he doesn’t anger Putin.

H/T Vox
Anyone else see a pattern here?

Open Thread, slam it and dunk it!

Weekend Rap Pup

It’s Sunday evening, and here’s a tired old re-hash of next weeks Gnuz.

Why the question of whether Michael Cohen visited Prague is massively important for Donald Trump
H/T Vox
The Steele dossier claimed Cohen went to Prague to meet Russians. He’s said for more than a year that he didn’t.
Getting closer and closer to the Clinch, the Uppercut, the Right Cross and the Countdown and Out.

And,
Trump Demands Chance To Review His Files Seized In Raids On Michael Cohen
H/T TPM
Sure, sure. You and your attorney’s will get the chance to review them.
It’s called discovery, after you’ve been hauled in front of a Grand Jury.

Finally,
Trump’s reelection committee has spent more than $1 out of every $5 on legal fees this year
H/T WaPo
Now THAT’s Hilarious!
The law firm of Dewey, Cheatham and Howe is getting rich of these suckers!

Open Thread, enjoy it, then use it to wrap up your fish bones!

Daily Gnuz

It’z Wednezday, and the Gnuz beith thus:

Cohen: FBI Was ‘Extremely Professional, Courteous And Respectful’ During Raids
White House: Trump ‘Certainly Believes He Has The Power’ To Fire Mueller
H/T TPM
Which one displays a cool demeanor under fire?
Which one is freaking out, barely under control?
Which one is acting like a President, which one like a Prezidunce?

And,
Trump wants to slash welfare with stricter work requirements
Trump calls on his Cabinet to propose stronger work requirements for welfare across the board.

H/T Vox
Reviving the ‘Welfare Queen’ myth, the racism of this Administration is boundless.

Finally,
‘Two-part scam’: Robert Reich explains how Big Pharma ‘gouges the public’ as Trump’s GOP ‘line their pockets’
H/T Raw STory
Ripping you off 24X7X365, Insurers, Pharamcy Benefit Management Companies and the Drug Manufacturers, driving cost into the Health Care system cause there’s profit to be make off us suckers.

Open Thread, pick it up and run with it!

Weekly Rap-Sheet!

Since I’ve pretty much sucked at getting a Daily Gnuz out, I’m gonna use the weekend to try a Weekly Rap-Sheet.
Be at ease, no actual Rapping is scheduled, although it may break out spontaneously at any time…

And here’s the Rap Sheet for this past week.

US calls on Russia to end support for Syria after alleged chemical attack
H/T The Hill
Please, Vlad, can you not be so obvious? You’re making me look bad, so I have to pretend to scold you. No hard feelings or leaked videos, right?

And,
Orbán wins landslide to secure third straight term
H/T Politico
Hungary goes all in for Fascism. Anti-Immigration, free to pursue the vision of an “illiberal democracy,” complete with anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies, crackdowns on NGOs and strong opposition to greater EU integration.
More Trumpism, on steroids.

Finally,
How Should Progressives Respond to Trump’s Trade Tantrums?
H/T The Nation
A thoughtful treatise on what’s wrong with the global economic system and how progressives can offer viable alternaives…Good read.

Open Thread, roll it up and swat a pervert with it!

Ground Fresh on Wednesaze!

And heeeeeeeeeeerres the Gnuz!

Liberals just won a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court by a huge margin
H/T Vox
Winning! R’s – not so much…

And,
Mueller told Trump’s attorneys the president remains under investigation but is not currently a criminal target
H/T Wa Po
Read the fine print. Especially the words ‘At this time’. Tax Returns, Russian Mobster ‘investments’ in the Panama Hotel, lots more questions. Perhaps the Interview would be just GRAND if a JURY were sitting in on it?

Finally,
Trump Says U.S. Will Use Military To Protect Border With Mexico
H/T HuffPo
Just a few details…Governors have to request the National Guard be called out. For a reason. Posse Comitatus prohibits US Soldiers from doing police work in the US.
Good luck with that. However, we could arrange to have all the ‘well regulated militias’ come on down to the border with their arms and stand shoulder to shoulder at attention for the entire summer.

Open Thread, chew on it!

Wednezdaze are free!

Heeeeeeeeeeeeerez The Gnuz

H/T Vox

And,
Mueller told Trump’s attorneys the president remains under investigation but is not currently a criminal target
H/T Wa Po
Read the fine print. “legal experts said Mueller’s description of Trump as a subject of a grand jury probe does not mean he is in the clear.
Under Justice Department guidelines, a subject of an investigation is a person whose conduct falls within the scope of a grand jury’s investigation. A target is a person for which there is substantial evidence linking him or her to a crime.”
Hook is baited. Will bloatyfish bite?

Finally,
Trump Says U.S. Will Use Military To Protect Border With Mexico
H/T Huff Po
Posse Comitatus. Never gonna happen, not even the National Guard. Has to be requested by the governor. Who might want to keep his job.
Better idea. Round up all the ‘well regulated militias’, and send them down to the border to stand shoulder to shoulder, at attention.
For the entire blazing hot summer. Problem solved.

Open Thread, chew on it!
