Americans for Prosperity

"Who is the Most Dangerous Fascist?" (Ford).  Good context for Trump's 'fascist' death squads, more like Assholian Presidential business as usual.

"The Bonus Army Protest" (Olson).  This reminds me a of a lot of things.

"A Headline That Perfectly Encapsulates Mainstream Liberalism:" (Johnstone).  I think the last Assholian bill to be passed, with the stones of the Capitol crumbling around the vermin, will be some kind of Pentagon budget increase.  The bonus is some performative identity politics.

"Trump’s Fatal Error" (Lazare).  Trump could have coasted to reelection as the savior of his country had he not had to take orders from President Jared.  It's funny how much history turns on bad advice from foreign traitors.

"Epstein floodgates open as judge rules explosive docs detailing Ghislaine Maxwell's sex life can be UNSEALED in Virginia Giuffre's defamation case within a week" (Bates).  Again, we've got this complex manipulation going on where people who want the stuff to be released, or at least the threat of release, are pretending to be against unsealing.  Unless this is just material we've already seen, it seems very unlikely that it will see the light of day.

"Catch and Kill: the Protection Racket Used by Trump, Weinstein, Epstein and Wall Street" (Martens/Martens).  The (((media))) has techniques to look out for some people.

Americans for Prosperity.  I think Barry feels his big failure as a President was not deep-sixing Social Security, though he tried.

"Brazil Exclusive: the Money Laundering Scandal From Hell No One Wants to Talk About" (Escobar).  There's this big understanding in politics that the really big corruption issues of the previous government are never properly investigated by the succeeding government.  That way, everybody gets a kick at the loot, without fear of going to jail.  Lula followed the norms, and his going to jail is a direct result of this strategy, when it turned out the extreme right wasn't going to follow the rules.

"John Lewis, civil rights icon, is also mourned by pro-Israel groups" (Weiss). He took a risky walk a gazillion years ago, dined out on it for the rest of his life, and hoovered up the shekels for decades, so he is an Assholian Hero.
