Just when you’ve supposedly seen it all… yes, it’s Trump again.

This will make the Alt-White people scream like a monkey being sodomized with a shovel.Trump promised to Make Ecology Great Again. It's like constipation... 'No Shit' I've a feverish imagination but don't inflict it on civilians. I couldn't make this up if I dropped all my scruples. And took a bunch of drugs. He said it while looking around at the California Fires, the parts where he could stand without being incinerated. Which begs the question, why is this bastard not in a cell awaiting justice? The guy contracted AT GOVERNMENT EXPENSE (taxpayers, not tax and draft dodgers like You Know Who...) to build a 'resort' meaning 'casino' in Puerto Rico and couldn't complete the task. Now, I know he didn't ever put his tiny hands to shovel, hammer or military rifle but he was The Leader/Boss whatever excuses for himself getting more money from 'his' projects than all the people who DID work on 'his' projects... Come on, this guy went bankrupt on CASINOS which are infamous for getting the last laugh consistently. Does any sane person really believe he should be allowed to give his infamous s..t midas touch to all life on our increasingly fragile world? it

Hamilton the Musical lionizes the real Benedict Arnold of the Am. Revolution

OUR GUILDED AGE OF GREED AND NARCISSISM is naturally going to recast Alexander Hamilton in a heroic light. Though he adorns the ten dollar bill, Hamilton was neither a president nor a founding father. The first secretary of the treasury was rather the nation's founding banker. Not a Mr. Drysdale safe deposit banker, its loan officer. 52813

Can one liberate sheeple?

Animal liberators face a dilemma. Livestock deserve to be freed, every last piglet and lamb. But animals bred for captivity won't survive without it. Emptying a CAFO will precipitate an equally calamitous tragedy outside its door. The remedy of course is to stop breeding sentient beings for human consumption. The same probably holds for people. Social justice advocates can aim to liberate the "sheeple" but into whose hands?

President Trump wants a Bastille Day? By all means, let’s give it to him!

YES, GIVE TRUMP HIS MILITARY PARADE! Let the world see the tinpot military dictatorship which the US has become. President idiot was inspired to order his generals to parade their best hardware after attending France's Bastille Day celebration. Obviously he doesn't know the French republic is commemorating their liberation from the Ancien Regime of monarchy, theocracy and feudalism. That's when Parisienne rioters overran the fabled Bastille prison, the impregnable fortress which held political prisoners. It was the act which launched the French Revolution. Historians estimate the crowd of Sans Culottes to have numbered less than 800. Remember that next time you think the turnout at your demonstration is too small to make a difference.

How to play a REAL game of Monopoly.

MONOPOLY was invented by an anarchist who wanted to demonstrate the folly of capitalism. She called it The Landlord's Game. Virtually unchanged, Parker Brothers' Monopoly still teaches that the land grab end game always results in a monopoly. Players don't consider such an outcome objectionable because board games need a single winner, and since everyone starts at square one, all have a chance to drive the rest of humanity bankrupt. You don't have to tweak Monopoly much to render a perfect forecast of a child's prospects in the real economy. Start the game with all the properties fully populated with hotels and houses, all owned by the player who won last time. Now go. 52757

This repulsion driven resurgence of civic engagement is so 2002, sorry.

If we can credit the proto simian president George W. Bush with one good thing, his mediocrity did re-engage the electorate. Not enough of it, nor with satisfactory haste, but eventually Bush's misdeeds repulsed enough Americans to elect the first black president. They hoped he would jail the Bush cabal and restore peace, but that didn't happen. Instead the Bush wars carried on and Barack Obama started his own, also redoubling attacks on the American people, the middle class, immigrants, domestic jobs, Main Street, the environment, and paradoxically, the lives of black men. Equality, justice, civil society, continued to be degraded. The wave of youthful activists who saw their black Abraham Lincoln unmask himself to be a Herbert Hoover, disengaged from politics in disgust. 52478

US president spills beans on shitholes where developed world goes to shit.

Citing "shithole countries" of Africa, Trump impolitely referenced where it is that developed nations go to shit. OBVIOUSLY, SHITHOLE is vulgar, derogatory and unhelpful. Used by the US president to describe dark-skinned nations, it's reprehensible and racist. But "shithole" is more than a euphemism. Literally it's a place made awful by being the dumping ground of everyone's excrement. The specific lands which Trump slandered, El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, and all of Africa, are beautiful, scenic, and bountiful places. How could "shitholes" begin to describe them? Well, in a gold-plated toilet scale... Isn't "shithole" an appropriately condescending description of the purposefully underdeveloped and exploited African and Caribbean lands? The victims of the externalized costs of colonialism, capitalism, and now climate disaster, are what President Trump calls shithole countries. Predictably the international western press is translating shithole in its colloquial sense, not its literal, as shabby, backward, etc. --obviously to spare western readers from embarrassing themselves about their abusive relation to the third world, because there is absolutely no doubt that every culture and every language has a word (which predates plumbing) for where the community goes to shit.

Sorry no, Reich is not the resistance.

Robert Reich is great. His historical analysis is sound, though hardly radical. His economics challenge the dominant media narrative. If his illuminations work for you, fine. But sorry no, Robert Reich is not the resistance. Reich is only playing the foil to Trump's villain. And how hard is that, really? Reacting to Trump is the Democratic Party line. Resistance means more than the third law of physics. But this focus on the Mueller probe is not even that. It's pure fourth fundamental state of matter.

Meow Wolf’s new Denver development is urban predation in sheep’s clothing.

DENVER, COLO- Alternatively, Santa Fe alt-art venue Meow Wolf is URBAN DEVELOPMENT IN CAT'S CLOTHING. Here's the scam: Laud an arts collective of "creative types". Let them pitch an arts space project to city planners for which you'll supply the ownership investment. Let their non-profit creative-class cred prompt city leaders to provide otherwise unavailable land and the tax incentives and exclusions which come to cultural projects. Let them lead community fundraising to support art etc etc. You buy the land, you own the building, and you give them a 20-year lease. Their rent is subsidized by more community and city support. Cha-ching. 52043

Neuroscientist Alexandra Elbakyan designed SCI-HUB to free science from parasitic capitalism, by outsmarting it.

A US judge ordered that scientific document aggregator SCI-HUB be shut down. The site's creator, Alexandra Elbakyan, was fined $15 million. Except the long arm of US copyright greed can't reach her in Russia, and the 29-yr-old neuroscientist from Kazakhstan doubts capitalism's goons can outsmart the science community which favors open science. In fact Elbakyan's is a fait accomplit. 52009

Covertly spawned, color revolutionary, Arab Springy pro-democracy protests can do for Iran what we did to Syria.

When Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu express their support, you can be certain it's not for the good. Foreign military intervention in Iran aims to repeat the western demolition of Syria. While authentic public protest in Iran should be tolerated, western intelligence operatives should get no quarter. Terminate all covert actions in Iran, especially US-funded "democracy" agents. And NO WAR WITH IRAN.

Nas Daily is Borat for dumb millennials. Israeli Hasbara with pseudo goy knave.

Mondoweiss has the goods on Nas Daily, but they're wise enough to let readers connect the dots. Let's do it shall we? Nas Daily is a viral sensation on Youtube. It presumes to trot the globe presenting a sixty second travelogue for a new location everyday, minus the travel time, location scouting, casting, shooting, editing, seeking permissions, and marketing. Admittedly the inanity of the content must write itself. 51872

Storm Bastille. Load Guillotine. Done.

Tax cuts for the rich. Higher deficit interest to the bankers. Less healthcare, Social Security and safety net for you. Ceaseless war for corporate imperialists, continued resource extraction for climate depopulation, and more austerity for the middle class. 21st Century oligarchs say: let the poor eat shitcake.   D'YA THINK THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW?! You already went to the polls. You elected a democrat president who served only money lenders and warmongers. You already had a democrat majority in Congress. You already called your representative. You already sent them petitions. No matter the party, rich asshole politicians will pass laws to favor the rich. EAT THE RICH is good for laughs but first you gotta catch them. The French Revolution left us a blueprint that historians have tried to distort and blur ever since. Rise up! Overrun the security citadel. Decapitate the hydra of state. This time, spare not a single Mandarin. Minus greedy sociopaths, the average human nature is good.

The Fourth Estate is a Fifth Column

The Premier, Seconde, and Tier Etats were pre-revolutionary constructs to harness the power dynamics of the Ançien Regime. Academics and journalists then sought to pretend impartiality by pronouncing themselves a Fourth Estate, but there is no such division. That concept is a fabrication of the press to feign independence from their bosses. If we must talk in terms of arrondissements, the Fourth Estate in reality is a Fifth Column. It acts like it seeks the truth, in the interest of the people, but in reality propagandizes for the oppressors. 51520

Designate US a State Sponsor of Terror

WTF. What act of terrorism has North Korea sponsored lately or ever? Are we talking about the weird assassination of Kim Jong-Un's debauched rival heir? That was a hit, not an indiscriminate act, even as our propagandists now pretend to feel North Korea's cross hairs. It was not even peanuts compared to capitalist corporate malfeasance and western state sponsored shock doctrine. If "State Sponsor of Terrorism" designation is an appellation controlée sort of prerogative, like Public Enemy Number One, it's probably time to democratically crowd source a citizen's intervention. Designate the US a state sponsor of terrorism. Bring on all the sanctions, terms of probation, and ankle monitoring devices required by law. Disarm our terrorist mercenaries and advisors. Throw them in Guantanamo and render them to the interrogation centers of the other rogue regimes who aid and abet state terrorism. Freeze our and their assets and check Priceline for last minute bookings at the Hague.

Unexpected hagiography of pedophilic sodomy admitted by catholic priests to being “suggestive” instead of noxious.

The pedophile priest theme has been set in stone. A catholic school in Australia commissioned a statue of St Martin de Porres offering a penis sandwich to a child who stands no taller than most convenient. The child's hands are cupped as if receiving communion. Is the granite statue historically inaccurate? Probably its likeness is timeless. I'm thinking of the resignation to mechanical carnality and the stone cold gaze. De Porres was a Dominican brother in 16th Century Lima, Peru. No doubt the ritual depicted here reflects "Martin the Compassionate" at his least menacing. When he wasn't molesting children, De Porres was administrating the enslavement of South America's indigenous people for Spain's colonial silver mines.   When repulsed parents lambasted the newly installed statue at the Blackfriars Priory School in Adelaide, the priests agreed to cover it up. They conceded that the placement of the loaf of bread -in hand- was "suggestive" of a less palatable offering. While indeed the pose could be said to suggest misconduct, the adjective was paired with another term which only a pederast would be clueless enough to offer: "riské!" Yes, Father, do cover the statue if you suspect your fellow friars will find the little

Saudi ruler of impoverished tribal lands won’t share oil riches with own cousins

Saudi Arabia is a land of abject poverty, dominated by whichever tribal warlord claimed to hold the deed when the British started tapping it for oil. While the common inhabitants are subjugated under crushing poverty, fundamentalist Islam, and repressive injustice punctuated with beheadings, Saudi "royals" require gold plated escalators to descend from their jet planes. Now the "crown prince", dubbed MbS, is consolidating power by arresting his fellow royal billionaires, accusing them of corruption. Isn't that rich? Corruption defines feudal kleptocracy. As supplies of oil near their end, the robber barons get ever greedy about the last drop. Did you wonder why the Al Saud windfall wasn't shared with the poor? Now they want to cut out their own relatives. No honor among thieves. Thereby settling the oxymoron of Saudi nobility.

Syria neoliberal invasion ad campaign casts chicks with guns but no helmets

THAT'S RICH. When they're not bombarding western viewers with contrived photo-ops of camera-facing toddlers, victimized by Asad's bombs never ours, the neoliberal propagandists are fishing for left-leaning sympathies with "Freedom Fighters" who Americans could not should not leave behind. Meet the West's own Femen ForWar, Kurdish anarchist insurgents, one even dubbed "Angelina Jolie", who are photographed in action, with wide smiles in sniper's nests, looking like they're otherwise hanging in homeroom detention. I'm surprised we never see the lighting crews or makeup artists reflected in the shattered glass, but what we don't see in plain sight are HELMETS. Apparently only real soldiers need those.   There's even a Chicks-with-Guns meme gone viral of a bareheaded Freedom Fighter breaking into a huge grin after narrowly escaping a sniper's bullet. One man's insurgent is another man's freedom fighter. Western media's freedom fighters are your Freedom Fries.

Immaturity is not a juvenile crime

Should five teenagers, who dropped rocks from an overpass until one killed a random motorist, be tried as adults? The inconceavably thoughtless act was murder, sure, or aggravated premeditated manslaughter for certain, but was it the crime of an adult? It was not. I'll concede that immaturity can be criminal as an adult, it should be impeachable for adult presidents, but not for juveniles. What is the point of differentiating juveniles from grown ups if you're going prosecute bored stone throwers as adults?
