4-26-17 Nicole Sandler Show – 100 Days of Resistance with John Nichols

Trump today introduced his tax plan, which would cut corporate and small business rates down to 15%, repeal the Alternative Minimum Tax for individuals and otherwise enrich the wealthy and hurt the struggling... Did you expect anything less? Many experts say this plan could cost upwards of $6 trillion! The GOP-led FCC started the ball rolling on reversing the Net Neutrality rules... start paying attention! D'ump signed an Executive Order calling for a "review" of our national monuments, with the goal of reversing the many lands that President Obama had designated as national monuments in order to protect them from [...]

Christie Is Getting Moon-walked Back to Genuine Jersey Scandal

    He knew! So the rats are squealing under oath as they jump ship for greener grass than Trump World. [Rumor has it Pizza Rat led the charge.] Aaaw … a new Bridget Kelly update re the gubernatorial hi-jinks of Krispier and Krispier Chris Christie. A refreshing change from T'Rump's latest loafer-in-mouth moment. For sassy prior updates at Laffys Place transfer here.  From the dedicated Bergen Record: Kelly, a former deputy chief of staff for Governor Christie, spent the past two days on the witness stand, casting herself as a bit player in the administration — who made $140,000 a [...]

Nasty Women GOT Us the Vote

  Geeking out over Elizabeth Warren again. Plus the Senator knows how to lay out the truth in a Mark Twainish manner. Everything to love. From the New York Times.     Senator Elizabeth Warren Tells Trump: ‘Nasty Women Vote’   By MATT FLEGENHEIMER In introducing Hillary Clinton, the senator said, “We nasty women are going to march our nasty feet to cast our nasty votes” against Donald Trump.   'Well behaved women rarely make history' is one of the all-time shining common wisdom phrases that culturally scored and stuck. Every time I see some prime Warren barnstorming on the [...]

Let the Hordes of Damning Women Gun Their ‘J’accuse’ Engines #PawedByTrump

    A reverse witch-hunt, as it were, has finally gotten enough participants and personal courage to commence. With any well deserved luck, women groped or worse by Donald J. Trump will have their turn at sharing their #NotOkay "shame" in the political public square. I think we may be ready for a woman's revolution of the sort since bra bonfires were regularly planning cabals. Vice President Biden can take the wheel for a moment here, his appearance on Seth Meyers last night was somehow soothing in much needed ways. Groping is clearly and appropriately a BFD to Joe. . [...]

Pence Triples Down On Serially Enabling The Dark Donald

. We may fiercely disagree with virtually every damnable thing uttered by conservative Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal, in 'normal' times, but he brings a superb analysis of the peculiar Pastor Mike Pence and other obsequious hangers-on camping in the rarified stench of Trump World.  . The Puritan Pence is now weighted down with more consternation and outright in- "party" charges as a result ... Stephens baldly named the obsequious governor's human swamp of a running mate thoroughly out of control; and asserts that the alt-right Indianan shotgun rider is a Political Enabler.   . Even a Moral Enabler.   . Go [...]

Why Pastor Pence Is As Politically Alarming as La Palin

Kevin Siers, The Charlotte Observer via AAEC   The only dark duo with a shot of historically rivaling the political infamy of ole' Bomb Bomb McCain/Barracuda Sarah Palin is now the bad cast in this torturous national Reality Show, election 2016. Pence/Trump are now officially horror story actors. We refuse to admit that Conservative athlete Mike Pence 'won' the Veep debate Tuesday night. But man oh creepy creepy man, do not take his GOPper cred and misogyny lightly. It's only going to amplify in the coming final weeks before polling day, boasting mega vituperative nonsense and an ocean [...]

Same Problem Different Century, Women Still ‘Less-Than’ in the Patriarchal GOP

  Just when we think Trump and his spinners couldn't do more to repel women voters of any party … or none … the Great Swamp GOP machine produces more Odious Donald Ick to wade through. . Wear your best Orvis waders for this one. In fact, get three pairs on eBay and simply go single-use on this level of poli-nuclear waste. The Grand Old Party of white men has gone full-on retrograde, and the stink and spillage are spectacularly smellier than Seinfeld's hyper-strong B.O. in his Saab. . . Like the Seinfeldian B.O., it ain't easy to dispel and [...]

Death, Taxes and The Donald’s Duplicity: Who Wore It Better?

    916 million USD prime dollars. Of IRS deductions that could last until his Trump Squad of lawyers cannot run out the election clock any further. The New York Times' Susanne Craig was gifted with much of this info by snail mail … three whole juicy pages on Trump's 1995 taxes… Bouyah! An old school reporter's request (and some to-be-determined hands of 'fate') brought her the Get of the season. She aptly titled the revelatory article published on Sunday, "The Time I Found Donald Trump’s Tax Records in My Mailbox" A manila envelope led to old-style investigative journalism involving a [...]

GOP Alpha Dogs and Beta Cucks. So Seriously. #NotJoking.

  Applause to the hard-working left leaners over at Salon. And their comrades at Alternet. Headlines alone get an h/t with a flourish: The Alpha Dog that Wouldn’t Hunt: How Trump’s Ludicrous 'Alpha Male' Act Is Destroying Him sub: •  Trump's alt-right fanboys celebrate his so-called "alpha" masculinity -- but they're the real "cucks."   Matthew Rozsa of Salon has wisely held his mirth and thoroughly  covered the Belly Flop of a recent prat fall of The Dickish Donald ... in ways that should make you go Ick. Brendan Gauthier at Salon has also been feeling The antiTrump Vibe as volubly and magnificently. You see, [...]

Trump’s In a Glass Dawghouse Permanently Per Any Thinking Woman

    Just as Roger Ailes and Bill Cosby put punctuation to their own creepy sex scandals and waved anything resembling public respect au revoir, The Donald's long and storied history of bully behaviors/abusive speech re women pivots to Ick. Trump pretty much Triples Down on his most offensive bigoted commentary. He enjoys calling women pigs, deriding them as 'fat' and 'ugly' or 'semi-attractive' or 'slobs'. Or that there are somehow hordes of disgusting 400 lb. pitifuls no one but he can see, apparently to illustrate the dark depths to which his ship of idiots will sink. Then defend the descent. [...]
