to Myself (MTM)
Well, durn. Looks like the WH petitions website has been scrubbed. My
worthy petition to award Vladimir Putin a Medal of Freedom
is gone. The link now goes to
mug-shot of Dumbo Don. Worse, my log-in data have been disappeared.
Sad. The Change.org
petition is still hot. 8 signatures! 92 more needed.
Dumbo Don's inaugural jingoism forebodes a more "patriotic"
America. But is a man who dodged the draft during time of war a true
patriot? Does he have the courage to back up his bluster? Will he send
his sons and daughters to war, if necessary? Ever notice how
faux-patriotism is so popular w/ draft dodger politicians? Cowards in
power piss off vets. #CowardsInPower
Intercept's Mattahias Schwartz bitching
about DTDuck's inaugural guest list. The problem? Too many
billionaires. Or was it too few Jews? (Tom
Barrack, a Catholic of Lebanese descent, got the lion's share
of tickets.) Sad. Make Israel Palestine again.
Hilton not looking too cheery @ inauguration. Later she gets standing
ovation led by Dumbo Don but didn't get preemptive pardon from Barry,
who has left
town by now.
Jill Abramson too gormless to throw mud that makes sense. In Guardian
she bitches b/c Dumbo Donís inaugural address mentioned Bilton but not
Hilton or HW Bush. Well, duh . . . it was his salutation to the past
PRESIDENTS WHO WERE PRESENT. No wonder Abramson fired by NYT. No
wonder it was she who characterized Hilton as "fundamentally
honest and trustworthy." Stupid is as stupid does.

"A piss poor trio of fake news promoters"
you have been paying attention to all
of the anti-Russia dung being spewed by the major American news outlets --
and I'm not suggesting that you should -- but if you have been, you
may have noticed that in spite of all of the vitriol no one has seriously accused
Vladimir Putin of mendacity or spreading falsehoods in his so-called “hack of the election.”
I mean, no one is asserting that the "hacked" John
Podesta/DNC emails that were supposed to have turned the tide for DTDuck were fakes.
And, of course, that's because the FBI has all of those emails, too, and
so, as far as editors of the New York Times or Washington Post
know, any attempt to mischaracterize the Wikileaked emails as frauds could
get shoved right back down their throats. No, the so-called "fake
news" is not about the email-leaks themselves; "fake news"
is another issue: Russian propaganda. And more and more it is about
propaganda generated about the primary purveyors of the "fake
news" allegations: NYT and WaPo. It's sort of like the way the
real story about "antisemitism" has become more and more about
the ridiculous way mal-semites call every goy walking an "antisemite."
