Monday Edition, Gummint shutdown, President shows great leadersh!t

Department of Homeland Security: Trump administration didn’t consult us for ‘DHS study’ on terrorism
H/T Raw Story
Of COURSE they didn’t consult their own department. Why would they do that? They are just making sh!t up as they go. You know, fake governing!

And,
McConnell Pushes Back Funding Vote But No Deal With Dems Announced Yet
H/T TPM
Turtle stuck between rock, hard place and his soft shell. Thinks he’s going to shame the Dems into caving by holding daily roll calls. Not gonna happen. Why would the Dems hark to the call of false promises of ‘debates’ next month?

Finally,
House GOP warns: We’re no rubber stamp for Senate DACA fix
H/T The Hill
Translation: We’ve got our own pack of nutjobs ready to keep the gawdam gummint shutdown if’n you don’t cave into our effing deemans!

Open Thread, slice it ‘n dice it!

Thurzday, and here’s the Gnuz!

Shutdown drama grips the Capitol
H/T The Hill
The House TeaPartiers are holding up the process by demanding a vote on an idiotic piece of legislation that has no hope of ever becoming law. The incompetent Republicans unable to govern. Sad!

And,
Vox Sentences: The Democratic momentum continues in Wisconsin
H/T Vox
Another Democratic win by 9% in a state district that went for Trump by 17%. Jig’s up incompetent TrumpLickers.

Finally,
Trump says privately that a terror attack could save him and GOP from 2018 election bloodbath: report
H/T Raw Story
Beware the false flag red alert…He would do it…

It’s finally Friday, this week felt like a month and a half…Here’s the FriGnuz

The GOP is trying to pass a super-unpopular agenda — and that’s a bad sign for democracy
Political science (and common sense) says they ought to pay a price at the polls. They might not.

H/T Vox
We now live in a pluto/kleptocracy, where corporations rule the people, money is speech, and elections are bought and paid for by PACs funded by the 1%.

And,
Russian social media exec reached out to Scavino, Trump Jr. during campaign: report
H/T The Hill
Just a matter of time until they connect the micro targeting of the Russki ads on social media to the Trump campaign, digital wing and the bastards at Cambridge Analytics…

Finally,
Congress clears spending bill, averting shutdown
But Democrats and Republicans remain far apart on a broader budget agreement.

H/T Politico
Can has been punted two weeks down the road. Let’s kill the gummint for Xmas! (Note: Picture of Nancy Pelosi surrounded by white male assholes and their body language is bizarre

Open Thread, Hope you survive the weekend!

Wednezday, Humpf Day, and Here’z the Gnuz!

Senate GOP Hold-Outs Moving To ‘Yes’ On Tax Bill After Promises From Trump, Leadership
H/T TPM
Here we go, down the primrose lane…with thorns for the 99% and gilded lillies for the 1%

And,
North Korea’s latest missile test went more than 10 times higher than the space station
H/T Vox
Looks like they are almost nuclear capable…Scary sheiss considering the two leades are 40 years apart chronologically, but are mirror images of themselves egotistically and emotionally.
Trump retorts… “I will only tell you, we will take care of it”. Hopefully he will do something more productive than shatting himself.
Finally,

Trump Says He’ll Blame Democrats If The Government Shuts Down
H/T C&L
It doesn’t matter what the Prezidunce calls it, or who he blames for it. The Republicans control the government, and they will own it. All the way to November 2018.

Open Thread, Glad hand it, then put it back on the shelf!

Semi-Daily Gnuz

And, in today’s not so top stories…
Trump: ‘I just don’t want a poor person’ in top economic roles h/t The Hill
No Shit Sherlock. What happened to ‘drain the swamp’? Oh…Right… Except for cronies, Wall Street barons and the rest of the One Percenters

And

Three Ideas to Check Trump and Revive the Democratic Party h/t Paul Glastris @ Wa Mo
I personally like #3. Your take?

Finally,

Senate GOP to bring Obamacare repeal bill out of the shadows h/t Politico
My best guess is that it’s close enough to the disaster that the House rolled out to get a conference compromise done.
As much as it’s going to hurt, it may be necessary for the nation to feel the excruciating pain that is coming, in order to kick the R’s out of office in ’18 and/or 2020.

Good Solstice Day Morn to you all.

And, as the seasons turn, here’s the gnuz…

A frantic scramble before possible healthcare vote next week h/t The Hill
Yes, a frantic scramble to CYA before the feces hits the proverbial wall of shame.

And

Corker: ‘I Cannot Possibly Imagine’ Trump Would Fire Special Counsel (VIDEO) h/t TPM
That’s weird, because I can totally imagine it…. Hmmmm…

& Finality wise

Georgia special election: 7 things to watch h/t Politico
Could this be the beginning of the turn around? Or, will we see yet another close call that tries desperately to get spun as a moral victory?

It’s Monday.

Yes, I know, that’s not gnuz, that’s just depressing.

However, here are a few tidbits to chew on…

NSA Chief Mike Rogers ‘May have his own bomb to drop’ Wednesday   –ht/ C&L

Which brings up the question, would the orange jumpsuit go better with gold or chrome bracelets?

 

And

Filed under ‘do as I say, not as I doo(sic)

 After Calls To ‘Get Down’ To Business, Trump Goes On 23rd Trip To Golf Course –h/t TPM

23 Golf Excursions in 19 weeks of feebly Preziduncing. Some kind of record.

 

Finally,

 Trump: I am calling it a ‘TRAVEL BAN!’ –h/t The Hill

Almost tragicomical that this Prezidunce doesn’t get it. Yes, Mr. Prezidunce, it is a travel ban…applied only to predominantly Muslim nations. Nations whose citizens have no record of committing terrorist acts here in the USA. Your intent is abundantly clear, dumbkoff.
