Trump, Capitalism's Most Grotesque Contradiction

Josh Marshall has a nice chart that gives a cozy back of the napkin feel to the sale of one country to the phenomenally rich autocrat of another (nominally less powerful) country.



With Kushner Revelations, The Worst Case Scenario Comes Into View

Comey and Rosenstein wore wires. That's what the FBI does

Among the scattershot defenses mounted by the Trump's pitiable defendersf:


Why didn't Comey turn Trump in as soon as Trump started leaning on him?


Who says he didn't?


Work with this hypothesis.


Comey to his immediate superior: ( Rosenstein) "Trump is attempting to extort me to conspire in cover up.  He's still got some ambiguity available. "(January 27)


Rosenstein:"See where it goes.  Wear a  wire."


Evidently, Trump did not stay awake through Donnie Brasco.

Abu Shiksa is dead! Long live Goyische Kopf!

Knowing, as we do, that Jimmy Carter's Secret Service nickname was "Deacon" is not without elucidative contribution to our understanding of the man, nor are "Lancer" and "Rawhide" utterly incomprehensible as "reductios" for JFK and Reagan.


With this in mind, we may be forgiven, I think, for drawing unflattering inferences vis-a-vis the esteem in which President Trump is presently held in the Holy Land from the recent memo circulating out of Shin Bet HQ.

Obama to Trump: "Retract or pay, punk!"

It is libel per se to charge as Trump has, regardless of the actual non-impact on Obama's reputation or employment prospects.


I concede that it is foreign to his nature, but there is a universe in which Obama throws down and puts that fat fuck in the box he deserves.


I'm not even sure that on analysis, I concede that the downsides render it strategically unsound.


Pericles, please, talk me out of this.

Netanyahu: Demographics are destiny (NOT!)

I suppose it is not a coincidence that demographics and democracy share their first syllable.


Not one day into the carving up of Mandatory Palestine, Deadbeat Donald and Bibi did away with what remained of the 1948 Partition Resolution which gave rise to so many coolmovies of my youth.

Netanyahu "Give me some slack to handle Abu Shiksa"

Speaking in Hebrew (to deceive, no doubt, the prying eyes and ears of the Gentiles...) Netanyahu took leave of his cabinet and massaged their expectations about tomorrow's first meeting with Trump as President.


I might have to give a little, but over all, he said, I got this guy in the palm of my hand.

Born in East LA

The ramp up of a program of extreme deportation ( to accompany the extreme vetting regime....) inevitably brings to mind that Cheech Marin tour de force, Born in East LA.


The plot depended, of course, upon the "unlikely" device of a native born American being rounded up mistakenly and dropped in Mexico.

The Deportation Squad Rules of the Game

Just this week in the Supreme Court was argued what may well become, in terms of practical impact on millions of lives over a very short period of time, the most consequential decision of the century, (if not back to Dred Scott).

Arizona: new lethal cocktail one gram dose of heroin


Beset as they are both by Big Pharma sanctions and  ongoing challenges under the cruel and unusual prohibitions of the Eighth Amendment occasioned by the failure of second line sedatives to prevent what looks to observers like excruciating pain, the advocates of capital punishment are entertaining a creative solution.
