Bamboozled

"Tulsi Gabbard’s screw-the-neocons meeting with Trump sparks anger, derision, encouragement".  Smart move to fly the flag like this when there is obviously room on the left for a candidate whose fangs don't flow with blood.  Now there's your first real female American President (Hillary would have been your first Gorgon American President).

And here I was thinking Jill Stein was a Jewish American Princess when it turns out she is really a Nigerian Princess fronting for the Democrats:
"There’s also this little bit on her funding page: “We cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states we are targeting.” It also emphasizes that she “can only pledge we will demand recounts in those states.”"
"By the Numbers: The Recount Scenarios (It is a Long Shot)".

"Daily Mail finds new depths to plumb, blames hypothetical immigrants for neo-Nazi's murder of Labour MP".  Of course, as with any patsy story, there is certainly much more to this than the simple inexplicable random neo-Nazi attack that the courts have enshrined into history.  What strikes me is the ease with which highly implausible stories are accepted, well, at least by the consistently lying media

"UK Passes Bill Providing Most Extreme Spying Powers In The Developed World".

"Foibles, Fables and Failures" (Petras):
"The media accused Trump of being a sexist, racist, anti-immigrant villain, all the while ignoring Secretary of State Clinton’s blood-soaked history of bombs and destruction, of killing of tens of thousands women in the Middle East and Africa and driving hundreds of thousands among the two million sub-Sahara Africans formerly employed in Libya under Gadhafi’s rule onto rotting ships in the Mediterranean Sea. Who in Madame’s media count the millions of people dispossessed or the 300,000 killed by the US-promoted mercenary invasion of Syria? Where were the feminists, who now dredge up Trump’s crude ‘crotch talk’, when millions of women and children of color were killed, injured, raped and dispossessed by Madame Clinton’s seven wars? Given the choice, most women would prefer to defend themselves from the stupid words of a vulgar misogynist over the threat of a Clinton-Obama predator drone ripping their families to shreds. Nasty, juvenile words do not compare with a history of bloody war crimes."
As I've said here before, this was an extremely clarifying American election in the deep understanding it gave us of what monsters inhabit the American 'left'.

Tweet (Mehdi Hasan) (sloppy thinking from a 'genius' with the requisite Hitler reference):
"Chomsky to me on Zizek's pro-Trump argument: "Terrible point. It's the same point people like him said about Hitler""
All-Star reading list: "An Initial Set of Sites That Reliably Echo Russian Propaganda".  On the other hand . . .  "The Entire Mainstream Warmongering Media is Fake".

"Calling Them “Alt-Right” Helps Us Fight Them".  It will be interesting to watch what happens as Trump separates himself from them and disappoints the white working class.  "The alt-right is starting to feel ‘bamboozled’ by Trump".

"Lawrence Solomon: Electoral reform could curse Canada with a Parliament full of Trumps".  "From One Caucus to Another".

The idea seems to be if they fess up to one propaganda lie the rest will be allowed to pass:  "Syria's White Helmets apologize for Mannequin Challenge video".
