Morning Wonketariat! Here’s some of the things we may be talking about today.

After Paul Manafort failed to come correct on his his Russian blood money, he made his pissed off Russian partners an offer they couldn’t refuse.

The Trump Taxes are here, and the loudest assholes in the room are the press who keep asking why are all these super rich people getting a fucking tax cut?

Sen. Lisa Murkowski is taking headshots at zombie TrumpCare, telling her colleagues that any health care law needs to be bipartisan.

Democrats are playing a dangerous game and daring Republicans to keep trying to strip healthcare from all the poors.

Because he’s not happy picking fights with just one or two countries in Not America, Trump is now starting a trade war with Canada.

Now that Puerto Rico is a No Man’s Land, Florida Democrats are opening their arms to welcome all the potential new voters who could tip the scales in future elections.

Trump is apparently pissed at Tom Price for skipping around fly-over country on fancy planes. Maybe he should have used Trump Air?

It’s not just Tom Price who refuses to fly in steerage, Scott Pruitt has been using chartered military flights to avoid rubbing elbows with the rest of us regular folk.

Good news, heathens! A US District Judge has struck down a Kentucky anti-abortion law that required ultrasounds before abortions.

People in Baltimore’s “Kushnerville” want to drag Prince Kushner into court and sue his smarmy ass for ruining their lives with with nickel and dime fees.

Some brain cases at one of those fancy schools crunched some numbers and found that Russian social media bullshit brainwashed racist uncles in swing states like Pennsyltucky, Florida and Michigan to push Trump over the edge.

A couple of Russian trolls were using a Muslim nonprofit’s hacked Facebook account to shitpost bad memes and troll Hillary Clinton and John McCain.

In a desperate attempt to fall off the same cliff as the Trump Train, Paul Ryan was kicking Mitch McConnell on Hannity last night. He had charts, and graphs, just like Ross Perot!

Don’t you dare tell Tucker Carlson he’s a racist, or a white nationalist, or an ignorant fuck stick in a suit who doesn’t know the first thing about struggling to survive on less than minimum wage like a common poor! Why, he just might make snippy comments on his teevee show about you!

Two weeks ago, when Little Donnie dumped his Secret Service chaperones and people started freaking out, he had actually decided to go moose hunting in Canada — and he would have gotten away with it too, except he’s A Idiot.

How bad is it to be broke AND black in America? Hint: It’s really bad. And may Crom help you if you need to file for bankruptcy.

And here’s your morning Nice Time! Prevost Squirrels!


We need you to give us money! Seriously, we’re powering our computers on bicycles over here!

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-28/mountains-of-aid-languish-on-docks-in-storm-stricken-san-juan

    Thousands of cargo containers bearing millions of emergency meals and other relief supplies have been piling up on San Juan’s docks since Saturday. The mountains of materiel may not reach storm survivors for days.

    Distributors for big-box companies and smaller retailers are unloading 4,000 20-foot containers full of necessities like food, water and soap this week at a dock in Puerto Rico’s capital operated by Crowley Maritime Corp. In the past few days, Tote Maritime’s terminal has taken the equivalent of almost 3,000. The two facilities have become choke points in the effort to aid survivors of Hurricane Maria.

    “There are plenty of ships and plenty of cargo to come into the island,” said Mark Miller, a spokesman for Crowley, based in Jacksonville, Florida. “From there, that’s where the supply chain breaks down — getting the goods from the port to the people on the island who need them.”

    • Maybe we should be using some of our military cargo planes and helicopters then.

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/latest-trump-adviser-calls-58t-tax-cut-great-50150405

    President Donald Trump’s White House economic adviser is asserting that the administration’s proposed tax cut is “purely aimed at middle class families.”

    Gary Cohn says in a nationally broadcast interview that a hypothetical family of four should have “a substantial tax decrease.”

    Pressed on this point in an appearance Thursday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Cohn estimated the tax relief for such a family should be in the range of $650 to $1,000. “We’ve doubled the amount of income that people can keep in the zero tax rate,” Cohn said.

    He also argued that “the wealthy are not getting a tax cut under our plan.” Cohn demurred on questions about how much Trump would benefit by the proposed change to the U.S. Tax Code, but said “we are very confident that Americans are getting a great deal.”

    Once again, Tucker, if you don’t want to be called racist, just try not saying or doing racist things. Then, no one will ever call you racist. It’s a lot easier than whining about how unfair it is that people are calling you racist, especially since it’s actually totally fair for them to call your racist ass racist.

    We find that (1) nationally, Twitter users got more misinformation, polarizing and conspiratorial content than professionally produced news. (2) Users in some states, however, shared more polarizing political news and information than users in other states. (3) Average levels of misinformation were higher in swing states than in uncontested states, even when weighted for the relative size of the user population in each state. We conclude with some observations about the impact of strategically disseminated polarizing information on public life.

    Removing the deductions for state and local income taxes, and for mortgage interest. What’s not to love?

    • Nounverb911

      Can’t sell condos without mortgage interest deduction donnie….

      • Arolpin

        And it’s a really good way to cut 25% of the net worth of the vast majority of the middle class. (For most Americans, the bulk of their net worth is tied up in their houses, and this is going to cut the value of their homes by 25%).
        As an example, I have a very nice house in a high cost-of-living area, with high property taxes. Assume that my mortgage payment is $2600/month, and it’s a fairly new mortgage, so $1500 of that is interest. That works out to $18,000/year in Interest, and assuming 33% tax rate, that means that I’m spending another $6k in tax payments just on the mortgage interest.
        Now take real estate taxes, in this case it’s about $27,000/year, which at 33% tax rate means I’m paying an EXTRA $9k in taxes, on top of the $6k for losing the mortgage interest deduction. So now I end up paying net of $58,200/year for housing, rather than the $43,200/year I was paying net. That is almost a 35% increase in my net payments for the EXACT SAME ASSET. Which means that to keep my payments the same, I would need to have a house worth 3/4 as much. Thanks Drumpf, I really want to lose a couple hundred thousand dollars in asset value to support tax cuts for billionaires.
        (Granted, my house and income are are outsized nationally, but much less so for the NYC metro area. If my house value and income was one third as large, I would still be seeing a significant increase in taxes paid and a significant decrease in home value (since the 25% bracket starts at $75,301 for a married couple).
        The only good thing is that this will be a non-starter with the real estate industry, and will decimate commercial real estate development (unless they law allows businesses to deduct taxes and interest, which is possible). We need to get in front of this and start SCREAMING how this will take 25% of the value of your home IMMEDIATELY. We need to tie this to the neck of Drumpf and the Rethugs for the rest of time, and we need to spend millions on targeted ads saying, “Donald Trump and the Republicans are going to reduce the value of your house by 25% AND make you pay a LOT more on your current mortgage, so that billionaires can save millions. DEMAND DONALD TRUMP RELEASE HIS TAXES! (paid for by sane people who understand math).

  • bookish

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/27/opinion/a-boondoggle-masquerading-as-tax-reform.html

    This much is clear: The tax “framework” published by Republican leaders on Wednesday would greatly increase the federal deficit, would not turbocharge economic growth and could leave many middle-class families worse off by ending deductions they rely on. It would do little or nothing to improve the lot of the working class, a group President Trump says he is fighting for. It would instead provide a windfall to hedge fund managers, corporate executives, real estate developers and other members of the 1 percent. And can it be just a happy coincidence that Mr. Trump and his family would benefit “bigly” from this plan?

    On income taxes, the framework calls for reducing the top tax bracket to 35 percent, from 39.6 percent, which would benefit people earning $418,400 a year or more. It would also raise the rate for people in the lowest bracket to 12 percent, from 10 percent. Republicans say they will offset that particular burden by roughly doubling the standard deduction to $24,000 for a couple ($12,000 for a single person). In addition, the proposal would eliminate most itemized deductions except mortgage interest and charitable donations. This could greatly hurt middle-class families in New York, California and other states with high local and state taxes that the families will no longer be allowed to deduct from federal taxes.

    LINDSEY GRAHAM ON OBAMACARE REPEAL: I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING

    My favorite bit:

    “It’s been the most amazing journey of my life. I’ve taken the eye off the ball on terrorism, I’m just amazed the whole planet hasn’t crumbled because I wasn’t on it,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said of the weeks he’s spent leading the health care repeal effort.

    Lindsey actually thinks he’s the one bringing security to the entire planet.

    Also:

    A reporter pointed out that such ignorance at this late stage is itself hard to understand. “You’ve been working to overhaul this for seven years. Why is this so hard?” she asked.

    “Well, I’ve been doing it for about a month. I thought everybody else knew what the hell they were talking about, but apparently not,” Graham clarified, adding he had assumed “these really smart people will figure it out.”

    The mortgage interest deduction is probably way more popular than the ACA, and we know how successful they’ve been in repealing that.

    • Carpe Vagenda

      but million dollar houses get to keep it. Isn’t that enough?

      • Arolpin

        Actually, the mortgage interest deduction only covers the interest on the first $1million ($500k for single). So technically, million dollar homes are covered, as long as your lender allows you to put $0 down. In reality houses up to about $1.25million (80% loan value, which is aggressive on a jumbo loan) are covered now, but might not be if Orange Shitstain gets his way.

          What about switching from R to I and caucussing with D’s and getting two more to do the same? Maverickal and epiphanic at the same time. He would be called the savior of the nation

        I kind of like “no fucks left to give” John McCain. Almost makes up for “give Sarah Palin a national stage” John McCain.

        • guest1331now

          But never quite, always not quite good enough … I even liked Lindsay Graham (Lindsey? Lindley? Linsey?) for a few seconds when he said ‘McCain can vote however he f*ing wants!’

        • Zyxomma

          Never, never, never. Putting Bible Spice before the nation paved the way for Trump. Rot in hell, John McCain.

        I think of him as kind of the absentee, non child-support paying dad: You really want him to do the right thing. Occasionally he’ll come and see you and slip mom some money. During these visits you hope and pray he’ll change, but he’s still not really going to change.
        So yeah, I get it. There are a few things that shows he can be honourable and he once was an honourable guy, but most of the time he’s that asshole dad.
        Now Flake on the other hand…I truly despise the mofo.

        • guest1331now

          Yeah, I despise most republicans (in a love-yer-enemies kind of way) just for being willing to associate with other republicans, but some of them do have some impulses toward decency.

        • yyyaz

          Flake is the poster boy for the Empty Suit Society.

      • blaid droog

        I find it easy to despise the motherfucker. Even as he thwarts trump, he’s still being self serving. Never scorn a grumpy old man with one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. He might try to pull you down with him.

      • miss_grundy

        He’s building on his obituary.

    • blaid droog

      Gee. It’s only taken 97 years for someone to think about repealing this pos law.

      • AmazingProfessionalCrastinator

        McCain tried in 2010, 2015, and 2016, to no avail.

        • blaid droog

          You mean that brain damaged old fart actually tried to do one thing right?

      By the time the ships arrive from wherever they are now, load their cargo and sail for Puerto Rico, the ten days will be nearly up.

    So Ms. Kelly is not getting the ratings at NBC that she did while on Fox? Huh. So, not republican’ts expect more from their news hosts than the “blond with tits” model developed by Faux. Good to know.

    • From Russia with Love

      Nothing wrong with “smart blond with tits and some actual news.”

      • kareemachan

        Or personality.

      • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

        True. And, really, in this case I wouldn’t need the “actual news”.

    • Three Finger Salute

      Andy Lack of Integrity will just have to fire more black people to compensate. Nothing But Caucasianing will continue until ratings improve.

    • miss_grundy

      To give that blonde a slot after the “Today” show and that Sunday evening interview show, NBC got rid of Tamron Hall, who was a heck of a lot smarter and could ask feistier questions than any asshat on Faux News. Luckily, she has signed on with Hollywood agents and will get her own interview show soon. I hope Ms. Hall is enjoying the bad news for NBC.

  • Cogswell – In a Mirror, Darkly

    Russian social media bullshit brainwashed racist uncles in swing states like Pennsyltucky, Florida and Michigan to push Trump over the edge.

    Anyone who responds to their “you just received a gift certificate” email, of course, but all you have to do is have them say it’s from someone that they’ll trust, and most people would fall for it.

    I don’t know why but I started to read the times piece about Douchnozzle jr and before I got to the “read more” spot I was hurling scrambled eggs and grits all over the place. The writer got obsequious before the second paragraph. I had to stop reading and clean up the mess I made with my breakfast.

  • Mike Steele

    Just now caught Steve Scalise’s triumphant return to House. As he thanks god and capitol police, he somehow neglects to mention what an immense relief it has been over the past 3 1/2 months to know he would receive state-of-the-art health care, and his family would not be bankrupted in the process. Ingrate.

    • miss_grundy

      That’s because Scalise believes that state-of-the-art health care is his right. Yours–not so much.

  • Toledo Window Box

    There is an incredibly simple way to kill this sham tax plan:

    Bill and Hillary Clinton cut a TV ad, gleeful and excited about the millions of dollars the new Trump tax plan will save them, and all the great stuff they’re gonna buy.

    Dead, dead, dead.

    Why can’t we have squee-worthy squirrels like that in America? Why can’t we have nice things?!

      I like the big red squirrels you get in Michigan. Come Fall, they’re so stuffed full of acorns they look like little bears.

    “I think the greatest threat to our nation is us,” warned Senator Bob Corker, Republican of Tennessee and a member of the Senate Budget Committee. “The way we handle our finances, we as a nation are the greatest threat to our nation. It’s not ISIS. It’s not North Korea. It’s not ascendant China. It’s not Russia. We are the greatest threat.”

      If you define we as “Republicans in Congress” then he is absolutely correct.

    • By gum, he is right! We’re spending more than all other countries combined on military might instead of feeding people or educating them!
