O What A Tangled Web We Weave


When First We Practise To Deceive!




UPDATED 04/19/2018 WP, Giuliani Says He Is Joining Trump’s Legal Team To ‘Negotiate An End’ To Mueller Probe and WP,  The First Domino Just Fell After The Michael Cohen Raid and NYT, Giuliani to Join Trump’s Legal Team

...don't forget to laugh...



UPDATED 04/18/2018 NYT, Judge Says Trump and Cohen Can’t Yet Review Materials Seized by F.B.I. and NYT, Colbert Revels in News of a Connection Between Hannity and Cohen and NYT, Sean Hannity Is Named as Client of Michael Cohen, Trump’s Lawyer

Ironically, the purveyors of "fake-news" must keep up credibility among those consuming their "fake-news"—not so among those already disdainful of "fake-news" and its purveyors, there's no credibility to maintain. The beauty of irony is boundless!

Unsurprisingly, our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. has the same problem!

...don't forget to laugh...




UPDATED 04/16/2018 WP, Dozens of Evangelical Leaders Meet to Discuss How Trump Era Has Unleashed ‘Grotesque Caricature’ Their Faith and CP, Tim Keller, 50 Other Leaders to Discuss Future of Evangelical Identity at Invite-Only Meeting

Jesus would be impressed with such Machiavellian evangelical efforts—a bit like the dutch caricature of the still smoldering suicide bombers (i.e. self-immolators) being told at heaven's gate that the virgins have run out!


Our religious zealots have the same problem as the Republican Party and white supremacists, they've self-immolated along side our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al.


...don't forget to laugh...NewYorkerSatire: Nation Shocked to Learn of Possible Bias at Fox News and Melania Says Comey’s Book Not as Mean as the One She Is Writing and Hannity Says He Totally Forgot Michael Cohen Was His Lawyer When He Criticized F.B.I. Raid On His Office...

 





...yes we've endured our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al., white supremacist, and evangelical pathological drivel for over a year..."god" must be punishing us for [fill-in your favorite "sin"]...
 
UPDATED 04/19/2018 WP, Michael Cohen’s Visiting Prague Would Be A Huge Development In The Russia Investigation and MCClatchy, Sources: Mueller Has Evidence Cohen Was in Prague in 2016, Confirming Part of Dossier and NYT, Trump Sees Inquiry Into Cohen as Greater Threat Than Mueller and Vox, Why The Question of Whether Michael Cohen Visited Prague is Massively Important for Donald Trump and NYT, R.N.C.

It’s Very Persuasive. (Book Review) and Time, Donald Trump Relied on Michael Cohen to Weather the Storm. Now The President Is On His Own and NYT, Comey’s Memoir Offers Visceral Details on a President ‘Untethered to Truth’ and Atlantic, Firing Rosenstein Won’t Save Trump...

...really, this is the best the Republican Party and its "elites" have to offer our nation and its citizenry...an unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. who couldn't tell the truth if our nation depended on it and has more in common with mob bosses, oligarchs, and white racist psychopaths chanting "Jews will not replace us" than President of the United States...


...that said, what a beautiful opportunity our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al., its supporters, and the Republican Party has provided to re-right America, as opposed to destroying it by trying to re-white it...

...hey Dershowitz, how you doing on that appellate brief arguing for our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. that the search of personal attorney Cohen's structures violates our Constitution?...you know, the Constitution our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. rightly view as a "big beautiful wall" to authoritarian rule by white supremacists or others...which our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. simultaneously view as a shield (also, Reuters, Trump attorney Michael Cohen Under Criminal Investigation: Court Filing) for wrong doing and toilet paper?...


...impeachment seems like an inadequate remedy for a democratic nation subjected to our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al...is it possible to annul the United States Presidential Election of 2016 and by extension official acts?...our nation can then publicly build a "big beautiful wall" on the National Mall explaining, in detail, to the world, why America has no 45th President of the United States...

UPDATED 04/13/2018 NYT, ‘Special Units’ in Russia Were Trained in Ways of Skripal Attack, U.K. Says and UKGOV, Sir Mark Sedwill KCMG, National Security Adviser, Letter To NATO Secretary

[praises Ukraine's efforts to neutralize hybrid or asymmetric or memetic warfare]

and Guardian, GCHQ chief Condemns ‘Reckless’ Kremlin Over Salisbury Attack and Guardian, Novichok Used in Spy Poisoning, Chemical Weapons Watchdog Confirms and RFER, OPCW Inspectors Confirm U.K. Findings In Spy Poisoning and OPCW, Summary of the Report on Activities Carried Out In Support Of A Request For Technical Assistance By The United Kingdom Of Great Britain And Northern Ireland and UKGov, Salisbury incident: Foreign Secretary Statement on OPCW [Salisbury Novichok Poisoning] Report


Publicly release OPCW's full unrestricted report. Russia's assertion that it will not accept OPCW's final report (or responsibility) unless given access to the Russian assassins' targets is not relevant.

It seem useful to remind ourselves that our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. is or was† an adoring sycophant of Russia's kleptocratic strongman and despotic assassin flattery.

...don't forget to laugh...






† Recently our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. has erratically taunted Russia's kleptocratic strongman and despotic assassin. Strongmen competition or declining adoration or distraction or ?



The rectum-ramblings of our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. will likely continue with increased incoherence and amplification for purposes, which are still poorly understood...

... governance is not one of those purposes...

...the FCC should block Sinclair's application to acquire (merger) part of Tribune Media Company...additionally, the FCC should consider whether the Sinclair Broadcast Group should hold any public broadcast licenses...










† Our Congress must pass legislation to make clear that each user of any "social media platform" own all their collected data, which is licensable.

It is impossible to treat data security and privacy more cavalierly than our NSA, that is until Facebook. Facebook is an "idealistic and optimistic company" with a history of grossly irresponsible behavior. Committee members seem as uninformed fools pleading with the young CEO and his billionaire backers to change [insert your favorite plea].

Congress can spent the next decade pleading [and taking bribes "campaign contributions" from] with a grossly irresponsible Facebook, a big data brokerage, to self-regulation and increase user data privacy or it can create one or more open source competitors. Competitors which do not collect or share user data beyond that needed to optimally keep up and run the "social media platform".


UPDATED 04/08/2018 NYT, Mueller Said Last Month Trump Not a Criminal Target 'at This Point': Washington Post


It is unclear why our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. would suppose that a special counsel would name our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. a "target" in an investigation before interviewing our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al.?

...don't forget to laugh...




UPDATED 04/04/2018 TheConcourse, How America's Largest Local TV Owner Turned Its News Anchors Into Soldiers In Trump's War On The Media and WP, Trump Said Sinclair ‘Is Far Superior To CNN.’ What We Know About The Conservative Media Giant and NYT, Sinclair Made Dozens of Local News Anchors Recite the Same Script and Vox, Sinclair, the pro-Trump, Conservative Company Taking Over Local News, Explained

What a googol (10100 ) opportunity to clearly choose between amplification of repeatedly regurgitated rectum-rambling from our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. or a liberal democracy; you cannot simultaneously choose both an illiberal (i.e Russia, at best) and liberal (i.e. America) democracy.


Simultaneously sending both Sinclair Broadcast Group (NASDAQ: SBGI)† and our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. into bankruptcy would clearly communicate a choice! (NYT, With Sinclair, We Have Trump TV. America Doesn’t Need More)

† Sinclair is currently seeking FCC approval to transfer control of Tribune Media Company to Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc., MB  [Docket No. 17-179]. The application has been paused by the FCC.

UPDATED 04/02/2018 Vox, Here Are 6 of the Most Bizarre Things Trump Said in His Infrastructure Speech and Independent, All of the Advertisers That Have Dropped Laura Ingraham's Fox News Show Since She Mocked Parkland School Shooting Survivor  and Reuters, Mueller Probing Russia Contacts at Republican Convention: Sources

...more repeatedly regurgitated rectum-rambling from our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al. for those capable of tolerating repeatedly regurgitated rectum-ramblings...others must temporarily wear a biohazard suit while taking comfort in the fact that most cherish our First Amendment and do not abuse it...at some point even our businesses, billionaires, and tolerant will sicken...

...think of it as a gambling game that businesses and billionaires routinely play...one side "shorts" America the other goes "long" and then both sides do whatever it takes to win...ironically our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house et al., which now includes a direct link to Russia (see below graph of network nodes) have "shorted" America...the beauty of irony is boundless...

..."...Bullshit is unavoidable whenever circumstances require someone to talk without knowing what he is talking about. Thus the production of bullshit is stimulated whenever a person’s obligations or opportunities to speak about some topic are more excessive than his knowledge of the facts that are relevant to that topic..." --On Bullshit by Harry G. Frankfurt--...
