With donald as fake-president* bad news don’t come in threes—more like groups of 3,000.
In late August I warned that destroying USPS and removing ballot dropoffs are prongs the same operation. today, donald’s white house* being COVID-disease vector is not breaking news if you’ve been following my blog and tweets on the subject.
Here’s what I want to say on the matter: do not allow yourselves to get distracted or sidetracked from the matter at hand, namely, evicting Russian asset tRUmp from the white house on 3 November. Whether or not news of their testing COVID-positive is true—remember, they lie about everything including having lied about lies—nothing should detract from seeing our fight through to the end of this chapter.
State-GOP organizations are not governing bodies; they are an operation
tRUmp 2020 is not campaign for office; it is an operation
sabotage at USPS is not just a few rogue operators; it is an operation
removing ballot dropoffs is not strategy; it’s an operation
press secretary saying untrue things is part of an operation
calling it ‘liberal media’ is not just a lie; it’s part of an operation
subverting people-of-color ain’t just racism; it’s an operation
Senate GOP is not comprised of statesmen; it is an operation
All those operations redound to the same purpose: unblame Russia and reinstall donald. Today’s news about Russian asset and his mail-order bride testing COVID-positive may or may not be true. But in reality it just doesn’t matter. Tune it out, make your voting plan and volunteer as a pollworker. They need you; we need you.
I’ll be posting a fundraising video later today or tomorrow for Joe & Kamala. Meantime, stay salty. 😡
Trump is a vehicle for elite criminals' dangerous agendas. He's also a sociopath and constant liar in his own right. I don't know the truth about his diagnosis. I do know that you should watch his backers, foreign and domestic, as closely as you watch Trump.

As for-profit media continues to fail us, it’s more important than ever to find reliable sources. Authentic storytelling exists—you just have to look for it. On this blog you’ll get ideas, not ideology. Sass with class. Reporting with rapport. Evidence with a touch of evil. You get the idea.
Support independent authors, writers, artists, journalists and professionals. Buy a book, leave a review, start a discussion. Show solidarity so that we can achieve greater balance and, in the end, learn more.
