  13. A Russian agent shut down the government. He is acting in the best interest of Russia. The media @CNN @MSNBC @NBC fed and nurtured this beast with free airtime, and not vetting him properly. All he had to be was rich and white. The US media FAILED Americans! #EndTheShutdown

    Check this out, y’all, I just happened to see this. Very interesting, three favorites together, Ryan Coogler, Michael B. Jordan, and Ta-Nehisi Coates (screenplay).

    Cheryl Rofer and Silverman at BJ both did Dolt45/Russia pieces yesterday.

    Rofer’s was a timeline piece:

    Silverman asked the question….what decisions would Dolt45 have done differently if he we knew for certain that he was a foreign asset

      Every shameless, empty, hollow, soulless, flimsy, grifting, blatantly dishonest, lazy, dumb, self-loathing, messed-up, opportunistic nobody with zero self-respect, has figured out the latest quick money-making hustle of hitching their dumb, narcissistic butts and wagons no matter how remotely, to the pay-to-play, grifting hustle and shenanigans of the racist treasonous buffoon..

      Zirconia and Polyester, Candunce whatshername, Paris Dennard, the various ‘pastors’, the little pos CJ something – that little idiotic twerp the rethugs rolled out to disrespect the historic president …and on and on and on..

      Social media is now littered with a whole bunch of them endlessly preening and auditioning for the MAGA crowd – like a modern day, 21st century marketplace for slaves looking to be re-enslaved and freely offering themselves up to massa …or a sleazy 2-bit discount whorehouse brimming over with cheap, self-loathing idiots, strictly catering to and exclusively servicing cruel, perverted massa-types and those who work for or are even remotely affiliated to massa..

      So desperate that they’ll say and do just about anything to be noticed, cheered and hopefully at some point, paid or ‘hired’ by the MAGA/Alt-Right crowd as their black face/mouth that the racist owners can hide behind.. They get to purchase (for pittance since there’s now a glut of desperately shameless, grifters of color auditioning for the gig of stupid, dumb, greedy, grifting, self-loathing black face) and use the foolish, greedy nobodies to gaslight and attack prominent/high-profile black people, Dems and anyone they see as a visible, credible ‘threatening’ racial minority and a threat to them and the treasonous buffoon..

      It’s all so cringeworthy …

    How Putin’s oligarchs funneled millions into GOP campaigns

    SNIP

    In 2015-16, everything changed. Blavatnik’s political contributions soared and made a hard right turn as he pumped $6.35 million into GOP political action committees, with millions of dollars going to top Republican leaders including Sens. Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham.
    In 2017, donations continued, with $41,000 going to both Republican and Democrat candidates, along with $1 million to McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund.

    FREE PARKING
    By Sheri Hanson –
    December 12, 2018

    Sixty-nine percent of Americans support the Mueller probe and want to see it through to the end. Why doesn’t Mitch McConnell? This incredible international drama of intrigue and conspiracy has a new name to add to the cast of characters hastening the downfall of our democracy – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

    Mitch enters the story through his brother-in-law, Jim Breyer, a global tech venture capitalist. Mitch is married to Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, and Jim’s married to her sister, Angela, CEO of the family’s shipping enterprise.

      I’ll make a boycott play in a heartbeat on any person or business that doesn’t treat everyone equally. I quit buying anything from Chick-fil-A when the so-called conservatives supported the business’s anti-LGBTQ stance. I live less than two miles from Chick-fil-A. I pass by it all the time and keep on rolling. I also don’t patronize Hobby Lobby or Home Depot. If any person/business will discriminate against one person/group, it will treat others the same way.
