Daily Gnuz, Sunday Shitehole

America’s descent into hell is accelerating inexorably.

From Friday’s ThinkProgress, another murderous police officer gets off in a stupefying “innocent” verdict. WARNING: the article does include the graphic bodycam video of the murder. I did NOT watch it, as the article’s description of the senseless killing was more than enough. Read it and weep – I did.

Next, here’s what Rep. Mark “Trailhiker” Sanford said about the “tax reform” bill in a brief interview with Erica Werner of the Washington Post:

Mark Sanford (R) admits tax bill is a sham.

A new survey shows that 30% of white Evangelicals are still willing to overlook pretty much every non-christian thing that trump says or does. Here’s a brief excerpt from an article by Christian Post reporter Samuel Smith:

“On Tuesday, PRRI [Public Religion Research Institute] released its annual American Values Survey titled “One Nation, Divided, Under Trump,” which found that just over four in 10 white evangelicals (42 percent) were weak Trump supporters, answering that although they support Trump, it is still possible for them to lose their support. Meanwhile, 30 percent of white evangelicals say they approve of Trump and “there’s almost nothing President Trump could do to lose my approval…”

NOTE: Definitely check out the link at “One Nation, Divided, Under Trump”, interesting statistics laid out there.

Last, in keeping with the above Christian Post theme, another article confirms that not ALL Evangelical “christians” believe that getting another anti-abortion vote in the Senate is worth the cost. This opinion piece by Craig M Watts in The Christian Post starts out:

“Once again, abortion is being used to justify supporting a political candidate that deserves nothing but condemnation by Christians.”

Open Thread – enjoy! (or whatever more appropriate term you want to use.)

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!

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’s Twozday, and the gnuz appears like thisly;

Roy Moore spokeswoman calls accusers ‘criminals’ who are seeking revenge as CNN interview goes off the rails
H/T Raw Story
Dude, they’ve got evidence. Shitloads of evidence. That you were pursuing them when they were teenagers and you were a 30 something horny perv. Alabamans, whereforth your dignity? What about YOUR daughters?

And

Trump’s lawyer sparks intense debate on obstruction of justice
H/T The Hill
How absolutely Hitlerian of them! The “president cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law enforcement officer under [Article II of the Constitution] and has every right to express his view of any case.” Heil Drumpf!

Finally,

Mueller Subpoenas Trump Deutsche Bank Records
H/T Bloomberg
Now the real fun begins. The firing of Mueller, the impeachment, the riots in the town squares, pitchforks and torches, my friends.

Open Thread, enjoy one byte at a thyme

Monday – first week of December – the Gnuz look thusly:

McConnell predicts unpopular tax bill will be a winning issue for GOP
H/T WaPo
RUC predicts McTurtle is wrong, and 2018 elections will tell.

And,
Trump: I knew Michael Flynn lied to the FBI when I fired him
H/T Vox
How dumb is someone who tweets his way to admitting obstruction of justice? Prezidunce.

Finally,
GOP analyst predicts John Kelly exit after learning Trump secretly sabotages him: ‘How long can he take it?’
H/T Raw Story
Apparently Herr Drumpf has been doing secret assignments going end run on his Chief of Staff. How many ex-generals can you piss off, before you get pissed on?

Open Thread, chew it up and spit it out!

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!
