Thurzday, and the Gnuz is here, or somewhere around here…

Trump says he would speak to Mueller under oath in Russia probe
H/T The Hill
Well, yes, of course he’d like to, is totally willing to, and especially if he’s being treated ‘fairly’. But, alas, his lawyers aren’t going to allow him to answer any questions concerning his motivation, reasons for firing Comey, or how beauteous his mistress…

And,
Trump open to citizenship for DACA enrollees
H/T Politico
Again, he’s for it, until President Miller takes his cable teevee time away. Then he’ll cave and be against it.

Finally,
More US states eye donations to evade Trump tax changes
H/T Raw Story
There’s always a way to get around the tax system. The Feds can’t prohibit the states from letting their citizens deduct whatever from their state taxes. Period. Good ole 10th Amendment

Open Thread, barf it up and run to the sink with it!

Wednezday’z Gnuz herewith;

Senate passes tax bill, pushing it closer to Trump’s desk
H/T Passed without a single opposition vote, amendment, input of consultation.
You’ze own it R’s. Time will tell.

And

This Visionary Sci-Fi Author Sees the Destruction of Human Civilization: Predatory Capitalism
H/T Alternet
Good read, food for thought.

Finally,

Time’s up: As CHIP expires unrenewed, Congress blows a chance to save healthcare for 9 million children
H/T LA Times
Maybe, just maybe, as Red States get screwed over, and their children lose medical coverage because the Congress is too busy giving corporations and the rich a tax cut…Maybe they’ll start figuring out they’ve been screwed, blued and tattooed.

Open Thread, let’s get through the holiday season in one peace.

Another Monday, another week to get through. Here’z the Gnuz…

Former Trump Adviser Defends Attacks On Mueller Probe: ‘We’re In The Game’
H/T TPM
Game? You think this is a Game? The Game is also known as keep our country free from fascist authoritarianism. I guess we know which side you’re on in THAT game.

And

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump Face New Lawsuit Over Financial Disclosures: Report
H/T Alternet
I know it’s just a lawsuit, but cannot, no way, no how resist the urge to say ‘Lock them Up!’

Finally,

Scarborough: The GOP tax plan ‘steals’ $1.5 trillion from millennials
H/T The Hill
Yo! Millenials! We know you don’t really feel like voting some of the time. It’s hard to participate when the system is rigged. We get it.
But, you are going to get fleeced so the 1% can get richer.
Do something about it at the next election.
Thank You!

Today, Monday, December 11th is here. and HERE is the Gnuz

Republicans fret over tax bill’s unpopularity
H/T The Hill
Really? I find that very difficult to believe. To fret:

verb: fret; 3rd person present: frets; past tense: fretted; past participle: fretted; gerund or present participle: fretting
1. be constantly or visibly worried or anxious.
“the congress fretted about the chance of losing their jobs when people figure out the consequences of the tax bill.”

2.
gradually wear away (something) by rubbing or gnawing.
“the tax laws fret the American worker’s standard of living”

And
Three Trump accusers reveal to Megyn Kelly new details about ‘gross and dirty’ experience with president
H/T Raw Story
Gross and dirty. Says it all about this Prezidunce.

Finally,

Pipe bomb explodes in subway passage near Port Authority Bus Terminal, one suspect in custody
H/T NY Daily News
I sense a crackdown by the Trump administration. Time to round up all the ______…whatever ethnic group the suspect may be a member of…

Open Thread, get through the day, week, years until the next election…

It’s Thurzday and here’s the GNUZ’

Trump’s VA director cut a program that housed homeless veterans despite president’s pledge to take care of them
H/T Raw Story
No, the sitting on his fat ass Prezidunce doesn’t give a crap about the veterans, or the soldiers, or the military. Just throw away pawns in the game of life and death. What the hell did you expect from a draft dodging coward?

And,
Steve Bannon lashes out at Mitt Romney in Alabama. This is probably just the beginning.
H/T Vox
Umm, Mr. Bannon…what about the Prezidunce. Draft dodging isn’t reserved for Mormons serving on their ‘mission’. Drumpf demonstrated his cowardice with ‘bone spurs’. Right.
Oh, and Mormons aren’t really Xians, are they? Next thing Bannon goes for is ‘Joseph Smith was born in Kenya’.

Finally,
‘Holy crap’: Experts find tax plan riddled with glitches
Some of the provisions could be easily gamed, tax lawyers say.

H/T Politico
OMG! Easily Gamed? How could that Possibly Happen? They spent so much time, had so many hearings, brought in so many expert…wait. Never mind.

Open Thread, can’t really ask you to enjoy it. Just try not to get too enraged. And take your effing meds!

It be Tuesday, and herein be the gnuzes


A conservative group tried to plant a fake Roy Moore allegation in the Washington Post. It failed.
A woman said Moore got her pregnant at 15. Her story unraveled under scrutiny.

H/T Vox
James O’Keefe faceplants with another malicious attempt to undermine the free press

And


We Are Living in Perilous Times—And Yet There Is a Promising Movement Afoot
Citizens are not sitting idly watching our democracy go under.

H/T Alternet
A glimmer of hope yet shines…Resist!

Finally,

The Memo: GOP Fears Trump Turmoil During Tax Push
H/T The Hill
And well they should fear Turmoil. Isn’t that Donald’s middle name? All the insults, slanders, slights and arrogance come home to roost, as McCain, Flake, and others sink this effort.

Open Thread, if you must kick ass, please be nice to the donkeys.

For Sunday, from the Pacific Northwest, where the liquid sunshine will pour from the skies today. Stay warm and dry folks!

How to future-proof the West’s economies
H/T The Politico Cabinet
An interesting take, worth reading. I disagree with some of the positions taken, but in general it is food for thought. Ergo, Trumpistas need not apply their meager intellects.

And,
CNN fires back at Trump: It’s your job to represent the US to the world
H/T The Hill
Once again, the prezidunce flunks the basic exam question, ‘whose job is it to represent this country to the world’. A great big effing “F”.

Finally,
Time On Trump’s ‘Person Of The Year’ Claim: ‘The President Is Incorrect’
H/T TPM
Prezidunce Tweeters:
Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!
The Preziduncial Ego runneth AMOK.
