Weekend Gnuz

All the Gnuz that’s fit to display via electrons and stuff.

3 big takeaways from the major new US climate report
Climate change is here, it’s expensive, and it’s deadly, according to a dire new report.

H/T Vox
Republicans and Trumpistas would sacrifice a livable world to make a buck and put it in the piggy bank.

‘They haven’t gotten his job approval over 50 percent, like Reagan,’ says one GOP pollster.

Another Episode of Occazional Gnuz

But, until then, here’s the GNUZ!

Occasional Gnuz

Well, we’re back with some gnuz.
As dreary as most of it seems, there’s still some hope out there somewhere.
That an upcoming election might still make a difference.

With that thought, here’s whatZ happening.

We were Brett Kavanaugh’s drinking buddies. We don’t think he should be confirmed.
H/T WaPo
Probably too late for these former associates to tell their side of the story.
Time will tell whether this is a flawed appointment. Like the overturning of Roe v Wade with Kavenaugh being the swing vote.

And,
The New York Times has destroyed the most important myth about Trump — and exposed the breadth of his lies and corruption
H/T Raw Story

Finally,
Trump mocks Ford, Kavanaugh’s accuser
H/T Politico
If I were a Senator, regardless of party or gender, I’d vote no on Kavenaugh just because the person who nominated him is the biggest a$$hole on the planet.

Open Thread, please try to read or enjoy or tickle it!

Manafort Defense Rests — Calls No Witnesses

via RawStory

manafort

The day after Robert Mueller’s team called a butt load of witnesses, Manafort’s defense rested, having called zero witnesses in his trial for fraud and money laundering.

In my humble opinion, Manafort is trying to present an image of confidence that the prosecution failed to prove its case — and failed.  In reality, it appears that the defense was worried about Mueller’s team being able to cross-examine their super-duper honest witnesses.

Anyhoo, I feel safe making the blindingly obvious prediction that tRump, while he’s not using his “executive time” to scrub away the stink of flopsweat, will be frantically tweeting more misspelled batshit insane “thoughts” than usual.  Maybe bring in Hannity for a soothing tongue bath…

BTW, sorryi’vebeengoneareallyreallyreallylongtimepleaseforgiveme.

Consider this your open thread!
