Holy jeez, Wonketariat, have we got newses for you today! Here’s some of the things we may be talking about.

As the death toll continues to rise in Puerto Rico, the Trump administration is requesting to loan $4.9 billion loan for Puerto Rico. A loan for a beleaguered country that is already suffering from OUR unfair business practices.

Puerto Rico’s economy is at a dead stop as people desperately wait for the Trump administration to get off its ass and send help.

California wildfires continue to grow, now leaving 17 dead, and reducing over 2,000 homes and businesses to ash.

Carter Page is telling the Senate Intelligence Committee to fuck off, and that he intends to plead the Fifth on his involvement in Trump-Russia unless they tell him what they heard him say, so he can remember not to lie about it.

Even though Trump has cut back open enrollment for insurance markets, local governments and advocacy groups are running their own ads to encourage and remind people to sign up for health insurance. FUCK IT, we’ll do it live!
NOTICE: OPEN ENROLLMENT IS NOV. 1 TO DEC. 15.

Trump’s been up and tweeting this morning about the Trump Tax Cuts (For Rich People Only), throwing out bullshit numbers on how much the economy will grow if we lower corporate tax rates.

Don’t believe the hype: the Trump Tax Cuts are a tax break for the rich, no matter what Trump and Paul Ryan say.

Back in July, while the Mooch was swearing up a storm and Spicer was “You’re Fired”-ing himself, Trump threw a tantrum over expanding the US nuclear arsenal, prompting REXXON to comment that Trump was a “fucking moron.”

Trump sat down with Henry Kissinger and took some advice about North Korea; unfortunately, it was bad advice. Somewhere, out there, the ghost of Richard Nixon is looking up and smiling.

Decades of defunding of bureaucrats and eggheads have pushed the government to a breaking point as statisticians struggle to accurately gather and distribute vital information for the most basic functions of government, both small and large, as well as general market stability. Thanks, dicks.

SCOTUS unanimously decided to throw out one of the two law suits aimed at stopping the Muslim Ban travel restrictions on ethnic minorities, but decided to hold off on the other (for now).

Democrats are stubbornly snubbing Republicans and sneaking protections for Dreamers into important legislation like CHIP, FAA reauthorization, and the debt ceiling.

Believe it or not, there are a few Republicans trying not to piss all over Dreamers and they’re willing to cut deals with Democrats. One can only hope.

In case you haven’t been paying attention, Trump has been MAGAing all the gays too. Nothing says Americana like a gay bashing Norman Rockwell painting.

Speaking of gay bashing, that asshole county clerk from Kentucky who wouldn’t issue marriage licenses to gay couples, Kim Davis, has been in Romania lobbying for a ban same-sex marriage for the Liberty Counsel. Apparently failing upward is an attainable goal for some people.

Republicans are tripping all over themselves and trying to suck Steve Bannon’s cock for all that Mercer money and free publicity from his Russian troll army.

Vulnerable democrats are nervous about Russian fuckery in the 2018 election after Trump and other Republicans neglected to back policy that would have helped shore up electoral systems.

Entrenched Democrats are on their guard as progressive primary challengers begin to emerge ahead of the 2018 and 2020 elections.

A new Morning Consult poll shows Trump’s poll numbers have fallen in every state, and in states with the most vulnerable Senate seats his LOW RATINGS are now above 50 percent.

Trump SWEARS he’s not about to “You’re Fired” Chief of Staff John Kelly after a story emerged with a source calling their relationship “irreparable.”

Interior Secretary, Navy SEAL, and genuinely crooked bastard Ryan Zinke is now admitting to MOAR shady events and fundraisers with big donors and lobbying groups while on official government business, like a ski resort and an Alaskan steakhouse soiree. LOCK HIM UP!

Mitch McConnell wrote a hilariously bad op-ed to Democrats that is all, “It’s just us baby, Trump’s not here – Wait, where are you going?” The fucking balls as this guy.

In what can only be described as a resurrection of the #FailWhale, Twitter will let Marsha Blackburn keep her fucked up campaign ad after all, “after reconsidering the ad in the context of the entire message.”

A series of shady stock transactions suddenly ran right before Labor Day, and now the AFL-CIO wants the SEC to investigate Navient, the massive student loan giant, because it’s too coincidental for those trades to go down right as the Education Department announced it wouldn’t be policing loan companies like Navient.

Conservative lobbying groups are going all out with robo-calls and ads in an attempt to scare/shame voters away from Danica Roem, who could be Virginia’s first openly transgender elected official.

The cop in Utah who dragged and arrested the nurse who wouldn’t illegally gather DNA from an unconscious suspect has been fired. Good. Note that the patient ultimately died. 

Two people on the Baltimore City Council want to restrict public access to police body camera footage, so we can’t see how Baltimore’s crooked cops are planting evidence.

Chinese president Xi Jinping is pushing hard to build up the Chinese military while two of its top generals have mysteriously disappeared.

Russian fuckery might be the cock of the walk, but Chinese spy games are still serious a real threat to economic stability.

Catalonia didn’t “officially” declare their independence yesterday, and now Spain wants to know WTF is up.

The US flew two B-1B bombers with South Korean and Japanese fighters for a series of bombing drills along the coasts of South Korea and Japan just to piss off the DPRK.

A coalition of the willing is forming around Trump in an effort to trick convince him into supporting the Iran nuclear deal.

Israel actually told the NSA it was breached in 2015, and that it had found bits of hacked material on networks from Russian antivirus suite Kaspersky Labs.

Trump’s best friend, Tom Barrack, seems like a nice guy, but he also seems really shady considering he’s been there to clean up after Trump (and Prince Kushner’s) mess for 30 years. Interesting story! We’d read it if we were you!

Butthurt over the bad press, the head of the national sportsball league sent a letter to all 32 teams asking to “move past this controversy…to honor our flag and country,” which Trump promptly latched on to, threatening to revoke the now non-existent tax breaks that the sportsball league used to have. Meanwhile, team owners are quietly mumbling about their next moves.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have mean words about super rich pervert Harvey Weinstein; so of course the GOP made an attack video as if that video of Trump grabbing pussies didn’t exist.

Caterpillar enthusiast and former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka went on a radio show and bitched about all the sportsballers who keep protesting the national anthem to show their solidarity in opposing police brutality and racism by actually saying, “There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of…Now Maybe I’m not watching it as carefully as other people.”
“Maybe?” MAY-BE? Mother fucker…[BONUS: A response from Seth Meyers and Amber Ruffin.]

During the BET Hip Hop Awards last night, Eminem rhymed some mean words off the top of his head about Donald Trump. [Video]

And here’s your late night wrap-up! Stephen Colbert found the results of Trump and REXXON’s IQ tests; James Corden is angry about Trump’s grammatically incorrect insultsJimmy Kimmel told the story of that time in 1990 Frank Sinatra told Trump to fuck himselfSeth Meyers and Amber Ruffin ladysplained the shit out of oppression to Mike Ditka; and Jim Jefferies BRILLIANTLY exposed the civil war inside the Hawaii GOP.

And here’s your morning Nice Time! Hippos and elephants nomming pumpkins!

Do your part! Help us pay our bills with your money. We’re supported by people, and we do it for the people!

    • BadKitty904

      Russian/GOP pawns.

    • Now now, we’re all on the same team. A lot of the new progressives have their hearts in the right place, they just don’t understand that politics isn’t a zero-sum game.

      • From Russia with Love

        You have more patience than I do. But the actuarial tables say that I’ve only got three or four more presidential elections to lose.

        • I don’t have a choice. I might as well try to work with them than against them.

        • Climate change is far more serious than the newspapers understand. If the Republicans stay in power, the world is fucked. It may already be too late, but I’d rather die fighting the climate monster we have created than die while watching rich bastards steal my last few pennies. (They won’t be getting any richer at that point, because what do dollars buy when everything is closed, the water is toxic, there are no crops, and most of the peasants are dead?)

      • BigCSouthside

        I really just wish they’d understand that the single number one unifying goal of anyone left of center right now should be the acquisition and consolidation of power by any means necessary. If that means electing a center left establishment dem, you fucking do it, even if you are the most left wing person ever.

        We can fight out ideology and direction after we’ve effectively eliminated the republicans from any control.

        • Marion in Savannah

          THIS!!!

        • I agree, but their disenfranchisement stems from two things: “Why should I have to vote for the compromise (I’m still getting screwed),” and “Why do we always have to vote for the lesser of two evils?” Though these questions ignore the basic function of politics, they are valid questions/criticisms for a system that has begun to be less meritocratic than was intended.

          It’s difficult to explain to people who grew up during the Bush ’43 and Obama years and watched conservative groups redefine fighting dirty without considering the consequences of their actions. It is also ironic that young progressives would adopt the same tactic, but it’s also difficult to blame them for believing that it is a viable strategy as it’s the only one they’ve ever known to actually work.

          Their anger is similar to that of the Tea Party in 2010 in that they’re tired of “bureaucrats,” except the young progressive, like the Tea Party, don’t have the first fucking clue about what it is a bureaucrat actually does, let alone how to spell it. They want wins, they want them now, and they don’t care how they get them because they’re scared.

          Here’s a critter.

      When my brother was going through a spot of bother with his wife, he would always complain to the family about how horrible she was. After a while my mom just got sick of it and just said: “Well if she’s that bad, what does it say about you that you’re still married to her???”

    Two people familiar with the discussion said the Situation Room meeting, in which the president’s advisers anticipated he would sign off on a new Afghanistan strategy, was so unproductive that the advisers decided to continue the discussion at the Pentagon the next day in a smaller setting where the president could perhaps be more focused. “It wasn’t just the number of people. It was the idea of focus,” according to one person familiar with the discussion. The thinking was: “Maybe we need to slow down a little and explain the whole world” from a big-picture perspective, this person said.

    The next day:

    “Once upon a time there was a” etc etc.

    RE the nurse-arresting UTAH cop.

    Good that they fired one cop, but I liked this recommendation from Above the Law better:
    https://abovethelaw.com/2017/09/how-many-cops-need-to-go/

    * Was Payne filming himself? No. He’s got a partner who actually has
    his body cam on. The sidekick’s legal contribution to the situation was
    “So why don’t we just write a search warrant?” Payne — the one who
    “snapped,” the “bad apple” Payne — has to be the one to tell this dimwit
    that they don’t have probable cause for a search warrant. The cop that didn’t assault
    the nurse was eager to violate the Constitution in hopes that the nurse
    would fall for it. When she didn’t (because Alex Wubbels seems to know
    her stuff), who knows what he would have done to her.

    In any event, the partner did NOTHING to stop Payne from roughing up a woman. He watched the crime go down and did nothing.

    FIRE HIS ASS.

    * “Another officer arrives and tells her she should have allowed
    Payne to collect the samples he asked for. He says she obstructed
    justice and prevented Payne from doing his job.” FIRE HIS ASS.

    * Payne claims that his lieutenant “ordered him to arrest Wubbels if
    she refused to let him draw a sample.” That’s an allegation but if true,
    FIRE HIS ASS.

    * “Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown had seen the video and
    called it ‘very alarming,’ according to the Deseret News.” After the
    video surfaced, a police spokesperson said, get this: “Payne had been
    suspended from the department’s blood draw unit but remained on active
    duty.”

    FIRE POLICE CHIEF MIKE BROWN. That’s the most obvious call of all.
    He’s got an officer who got out constitution-ed by a BURN VICTIM’S
    NURSE, and responded by falsely imprisoning her, and all he can think of
    to say is “very alarming,” while keeping the joker on active duty? FIRE
    HIS ASS FIRST.

    As the death toll continues to rise in Puerto Rico, the Trump administration is requesting to loan $4.9 billion loan for Puerto Rico. A loan for a beleaguered country that is already suffering from OUR unfair business practices.

    By the late 70’s, Kissinger managed to make himself hated by both sides of the political spectrum.

Conservatives, now the New Right led by Reagan, hated him because he promoted detente with the USSR rather than the Nuclear Brinksmanship that they preferred.

      Not only Southeast Asia. He certainly brought his special brand of evil to South America as well.

    I am slightly dreading 2018, to be honest. On two counts – first, I think the structural advantages that the GOP has built for itself (including, but not limited to Russian interference) will not have gone away by then. Second, despite that, we’ll get endless “think” pieces from the likes of Chris Cillizza about how any Democratic losses (or just failures to upend the whole GOP in its entirety at every level and in every district no matter how red) mean that Democrats are terrible and it’s all Hillary and Nancy’s fault. I’m especially dreading that.

We are going to monitor every minute of your broadcast news, and if this kind of bias continues, and if we are elected, then you just might find yourself in Washington next year answering a few questions.

      Cool. Yesterday was my 25th anniversary.

      Wow, every five years, I usually ask Mrs. Mercenary every year if she’s trading in the old model. So far, so good.:-)

    Hearing Jane Krakowski joke about Harvey Weinstein is heartbreaking. Both because I adore her and because someone else I adore, Tina Fey, probably wrote those jokes.

    • WIDTAP

      Fey may not have a lot of weapons at her disposal, but what she has, she knows how to use. She was calling out Cosby well before her 2012 scripts on Weinstein, too.

      • Persistent Tennessee Rain

        You put a different perspective on it than I did. I was taking it as them making fun of sexual assault, but you’re saying they were pointing out what a slimey shit stain he was. I like your way of seeing it better. Thank you.

    • Serai 1

      Why? Do you think Weinstein shouldn’t be made fun of?

      • Persistent Tennessee Rain

        No. It seems they were marginalizing sexual assault. But, now I see that I was misinterpreting what was being said.

  • An Outhouse for the résistance

    Since the sportsball players are kneeling to honor our flag and country while pointing it out it could be better, I guess we’re all good then.

    Interior Secretary, Navy SEAL, and genuinely crooked bastard Ryan Zinke also makes pretty damned stupid analogies:

    Link: http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/10/zinke-we-cant-take-down-confederates-because-of-indians.html

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke says that the Trump Administration will not remove Confederate monuments from federal lands out of consideration for the feelings of “native Indians.”

    “Where do you start and where do you stop?” Zinke asked a Breitbart reporter in an interview published Sunday. “It’s a slippery slope. If you’re a native Indian, I can tell you, you’re not very happy about the history of General Sherman or perhaps President Grant.”

    Yeah, because the Union massacred millions of Native Americans, we cannot remove statues to traitors to the Union cause ( who also were responsible for massacring lotsa and lotsa Native Americans )

    This Zinke is just another corrupt, hateful, moronic asshole Republican.

    FUCK the GOP!

    • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

      I agree. And the only time I’ve actually seen that slippery slope bullshit actually work was during the descent of the GOP over the last 30 years.

      • Rocket Pony Ron

        Once again, projection.

      • bupkus231

        Yeah – apparently Zinke slid down that slope long ago.

    The mouth-breathing Regressives still won’t let go of the fake “IRS Scandal” – in the face of the obvious.

    http://www.newsweek.com/remember-irs-scandal-it-was-fake-news-all-along-681674

    This article makes the point I’ve been repeating for years. It couldn’t have been a political move to deny these groups tax-exempt status to swing the election because they weren’t supposed to be involved in politics in the first place.

    Then, of course, there’s the fact that while their applications were being processed the entities could continue to raise money and conduct their non-partisan activities. And the fact no “conservative” group was denied – despite the lists here on the Internets that some 70 organizations didn’t have their applications approved.

    Logic and facts – how to they work again?

      Kissinger: “Bomb the country next door. All their support is coming from there.”

      Trump: “You heard him, guys. Bomb South Korea!”

      • NellCote71

        Astute observation.

    Whoever would have imagined that the entire Republican Party would have thus precipitately declined and fallen, becoming the arena for this vast proxy battle between the forces of Charles Koch (mostly fossil fuel billionaires who want to take the country back to the 1920s so they won’t have to pay taxes, obey laws, or observe regulations any more, with the elimination of the safety net and a ban on union organizing thrown in as icing) and the forces of Robert Mercer (mostly tech billionaires, geeks and gearheads weaponized by too much money, and above all, mostly loons: racist, “war of civilizations”-mongering, unhinged, nuclear-war-loving, pee-drinking, eternal-life-seeking, loons).

    When the world is running down, you make the best of what’s still around.

    But with these lot poised to poison earth, air, and water, crush the common man, and leave the planet a leached and horrid wasteland in the name of Ayn Rand if the Koch faction wins, or simply blow us all to smithereens in the name of the Church Militant if the Mercer faction wins, it’s hard to figure out what to make the best of.

    My Spidey-senses tell me the GOP is shifting into overdrive, to fuck over as much of the US as they can before the excrement contacts the air circulation device.

    McConnell starts his op-ed:

    For many Americans living on the coasts — or working in Silicon Valley or finance — the recession of 2008-2009 may seem little more than a distant memory. But for many other Americans, the last 10 years have been a lost decade, where the economy stumbled and opportunities declined. They suffered through stagnant paychecks, a lack of steady work and retirement that slipped further away by the day.

    That’s a much subtler dog whistle than usual. So, Asian immigrants and Jews weren’t affected by the downturn, is that what you are saying, Mitch?

    Emmit Till was born in 1941. Mike Ditka was born in 1939. Fuck you, Mike Ditka. Fuck you, sideways. He was TWO FUCKING YEARS YOUNGER THAN YOU, you piece of shit. FUCK YOU. I’m sorry, but I cannot be outraged enough about this fucking asshole.

    We have to get Trump out in our own self-defense. Impeach. 25. Whatever (votes, of course). Can you imagine what he’ll do for 11 days in Asia?
