The Republican Party’s Sickness Of The Soul

crooksandliars - Thu, 06/01/2017 - 07:00

There’s a sickness on the land. You know the facts: millions of Americans lives in poverty. The number of Americans in the workforce remains low. Wages are stagnating and inequality is growing. “Deaths of despair” from alcoholism, opioid overdose, and suicide are on the rise.

But it’s not just the inequality, or the poverty, or the despair, that wounds us. It’s the fact that so many Republican leaders and voters find ways to justify living with these injustices, and are now making them worse.

There’s no polite way to say it: they suffer from a sickness of the soul.

That kind of talk upsets the delicate feelings of conservatives like Tucker Carlson, who recently complained about

the unreasonableness… (the) assumption — and it’s held by a lot of people I live around — that you’re on God’s side … and by calling them names you’re doing the Lord’s work. I just don’t think that’s admirable, and I’m not impressed by that.

With apologies to Tucker and other conservative snowflakes: when your party is calling for the starvation and mistreatment of large groups of people, it’s reasonable to describe you in less than flattering terms.

C&L's Late Nite Music Club With White Hills

crooksandliars - Wed, 05/31/2017 - 22:00

Each of White Hills has been a progression and an exploration of modern psych, doomed out metal and the clanging of machines. Their latest album, Stop Mute Defeat, is not exception. The band has always been not afraid of the dark side of life, but on this go-round they address a lot of concerns for the world at large of right now. On the surface, it may seem that they're advocating dancing in the ruins but it goes much deeper than that.

What are you listening to tonight?

Trump Spending Millions Harrassing Student Borrowers Instead Of Helping Them

crooksandliars - Wed, 05/31/2017 - 22:00

The right wing’s decades long reverse Robin Hood plan to funnel America’s wealth away from the people and hand it over to private corporations and the 1% is happening at top speed. Look closely at every corner of our system and you will find, instead of just helping the people directly, our collective money goes to corporations first, who take a huge amount of it for themselves before actually doing anything of service to the people. The most recent example? Government figures show that American taxpayers are giving $38 to private debt collection agencies for each $1 of outstanding federal student debt they bring in. According to Bloomberg, debt collection?agencies have taken home close to $1 billion?annually, in recent years under the guise of ‘helping distressed borrowers climb out of default’. Debt collectors clamor for these contracts as they are some of the most lucrative in the debt collection industry. They also carry out their work in a manner that can only be described as either purposefully neglectful or idiotically negligent. The negligence conveniently results in a revolving door of near-default borrowers that collection agents can continue to harass at the government’s expense. You can see more details of how your tax dollars are being given to debt collection agencies in the above video produced by the team at act.tv.

Judge Napolitano: Comey Hearing Could Be 'Very Damaging' To Trump

crooksandliars - Wed, 05/31/2017 - 21:00

Earlier today there was breaking news about how Comey would 인터넷 카지노 게임publicly testify as early as next week. Woo doggy, this is great news. He was cleared by Special Investigator Mueller to testify in public, although the scope appears to be pretty narrow.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Comey will talk about how the Orange Menace asked/begged/tried to force Comey to stop investigating Flynn for all his crazy, treasonous, probably illegal stuff.

Fox News, the mouthpiece of crazy, conservative, strongly anti-anything reality based, even recognizes how dangerous this is for Trump. Here is a clip from earlier today where they discuss it:

Napolitano: It would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something without an appropriate purpose. But this asks about the Attorney General. It does not ask about the President stopping the FBI. Bottom line, we're in for a tremendous fireworks when James Comey goes under oath and tells the Senate Intelligence Committee "The President of the United States of America asked me to obstruct justice and I didn't do so and I lost my job."

Smith: Is it a leap to go from "the President asked me to back off the Flynn investigation" to "obstruction of justice"? Because my understanding of this, and you know, correct me if I'm wrong, proving of intent is required.
