    Pandemic: Pence to Censor Health Officials Speech

    Trump has ordered Pence to control, filter and spin all virus information and statements by government health officials, to protect Donald Trump's re-election. Keeping American citizens in the dark is the Soviet system, authoritarian solution.

    This is not the Onion, but front page NYT:

    Pence Will Control All Coronavirus Messaging From Health Officials

    Blowing all the competition for live debate coverage out of the water?

    Heading on @Cnn tonight after the debate and will be live tweeting it throughout. Tonight will be the Bernie debate as he is at this point the clear, almost prohibitive, frontrunner. Super Tuesday is a week from now and this is the last debate before then.

    Code Red: E. J. Dioone’s Plea To Save The United States

    E.J.Dionne has given up on waiting for Conservatives to find a backbone. The only way to save the country is for Progressives and Moderates to work together and vote for the Democrat left standing. The Brookings Institute will host an interview with Dionne tomorrow discussing his new book "Code Red: How Progressives and Moderates Can Unite to Save Our Country,”

    The Crown Act: Fighting Hair Discrimination

    We’ve all seen or heard of stories about black children being pulled out of class and black employees having their jobs placed in jeopardy over their hairstyles. Last month, for example, Texas high school student Deandre Arnold made headlines after he was suspended over his locks and told he needed to cut them before he would be allowed to graduate.

    Hillary said "Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done"

    Here's an interesting poll related to that, I think:

    Hey Andrew Cuomo! Feel the Bern, (don't fuck the poor)

    Andrew Cuomo, admittedly, is no Mario Cuomo, so the fact that his father would rise from the grave and strangle in him his crib before seeing him patch his budget hole by ripping skin off Medicaid, should not distract us from the all out assault bei

    What would Tony Soprano do?

    Holy cow! He appears to be engaging in another quid pro quo right before our eyes. I don't know what to say but HOLY COW! NY must drop its lawsuits against him if New Yorkers want Global Entry status? HOLY COW!!! HOLY COW!!! https://t.co/4NPUgc9LNt

    Mayor Pete--Intellectual heir of Gramsci...da fuque??

    Well, here is some good news!

     

    Turns out that Pete Buttigieg's late father Joseph (d. January, 2019) was a serious scholar whose areas of interest included James Joyce, and (wait for it....) Franz Fanon and Antonio Gramsci.

    Gramsci is the intellectual fount of Occupy Wall Street!

    Fire up the Mint--AOC is tapped for Sec/Treas, Platinum Proof Coin to follow

     

    I am happy to report a precognitive flash (like the one I had that Trump would win in '16)

     

    It's Sanders in November, and he will tap AOC to run the Treasury.  (Stephanie Kelton will be Fed Chief when Powell expires).

     

    Succession untidiness will be obviated by Trump's timely election night stroke upon hearing Hannity call the election for Sanders.

     

    I love it when a plan comes together...

    General election. No debates, maybe no election.

    As a bonus worry for freedom loving Americans distressed by the ongoing electoral chaos, more than one commentator deconstructing the primary debates has cogently argued that Trump will never subject himself to debates going into the general.

    Dental implants! (Will no prosthodontist comp Biden a set?)

    Just breezed by Biden's CNN Town Hall, and to my untutored eye, he is having a really bad time with his upper plate..

     

    I know they are expensive, but, shit!  You're running for President, Dude!  Ditch the 19th century technology!

     

    It's nothing to me, but if I were a Biden fan, I''d start a Gofundme.

    Books in Blackface

    The bookselling behemoth recently announced that their flagship Fifth Avenue location will partner with publishing giant Penguin Random House to celebrate Black History Month and highlight diversity. And if you assumed this news meant B&N planned to shine a spotlight on black authors or even books about black people, you’re wrong. Instead of focusing on the content of books, they had had a different, more Bookman-like approach:

    They put their books in blackface.

    67 Years Later, Bayard Pardoned Posthumously

    He was a chief organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, a crucial strategist on nonviolent tactics and an adviser to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

    Bayard Rustin was also openly gay. And in 1953, he was arrested for having consensual sex with men in Pasadena, Calif. The “morals charge,” which was often used to target gay people in those years, remained a stain on his record and nearly sidelined him from the movement he helped create.
