Daily or Occasionally Gnuz

Well, the Election is over, the House belongs to the Democratic Party, and Trump feels like he’s had a great Triumph.

So here’s what’s in the Gnuz
Trump is about to sign an asylum ban
H/T Vox
SubHeadline – “The policy to limit asylum to people who cross at official ports of entry — teed up by a regulation published Thursday night — is Trump’s most legally dicey immigration move yet.”

Red Meat for the White Nationalist Fascist Party (henceforth referred to as the WNFP) rabids.

And,
Acting AG Whitaker Once Said Russian Election Interference Had Been ‘Proven False’
H/T TPM
Exactly why Trump appointed him.
Next up, Trump nominates the biggest asshole (other than himself) to the post, and knows the Senate won’t confirm, rinse and repeat, and Mueller is fired, the cover up continues unabated.

Finally,
Sarah Sanders promotes an altered video of CNN reporter, sparking allegations of visual propaganda
H/T WaPo
Well, we know they have no shame, pushing a doctored video as some kind of evidence that the ‘enemy lurks’

Open Thread, pick it up and run with it!

Pre-Election Gnuz

It’s a week away from one of the biggest turning points in our history and here’s what’s at stake:

Planet has only until 2030 to stem catastrophic climate change, experts warn
H/T CNN
We have from now until a newborn goes to middle school to turn this around.
We need leadership that vows to put solar shingles on every roof in America, ban fossil fuel burning cars within five years, put wind powered turbines every place the wind blows.
For starters.
Consumption needs to come down to sustainable levels. Capitalism isn’t going to get that done.
Your thoughts?

And,
Trump isn’t to blame. His entire party is.
H/T WaPo
Sheep to the slaughter. Lemmings first class.

Finally,
WATCH: Russia expert explains how Trump’s anti-Semitic rhetoric is ‘straight out of Putin’s playbook’
H/T Raw story
It’s a damn shame this president’s tax reuturns are available to show he’s in Putin’s pocket.

Occasional Gnuz

Here’s the Gnuz of the occasion, where I found a few minutes to post.

US National Guard chief: “The climate is changing. I don’t know why.”
H/T Vox

We’ve got less than a decade to fix this or we are totally FUKKED>
And here’s what we’re up against.

And,
4 Days After Storm, Large Swath Of Panhandle Suffering
H/T TPM
Michael Lewis’ book The Fifth Risk is a must read.
All these idiots who want to deconstruct the gummint are gonna find out the hard way the error of their ways.

Finally,
‘The the biggest con job on the face of the Earth’: Tennessee Democrat drops the mic on Trump’s entire time in office

True, it is.

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!

Report: Mueller Team Has Questioned Cohen About Russia, Pardon Talks
H/T TPM
I think I see a pattern.
Mueller holds his cards close to the vest while Trump brags about his awesome 4 of clubs and magnificent six of diamonds. He’s sure he’ll draw the 5 of hearts to complete his straight jacket flush.

Finally,
Walmart warns Trump tariffs may force price hikes: letter
H/T Raw Story
The last damned thing Mal-Wart wants to do is raise prices, but those margins aren’t going to get damaged, oh no..not today, not tomorrow. The customer will pay the tax that the tariffs represnt. Regressing taxes, no less. Congrats, elections have consequences. Vote in November.
