Happy Monday Cringefest, Wonketariat! Here’s some of the things we may be talking about today, but first, here’s some nice time party otters.

A gunman opened fire with a military-style assault rifle in a rural Texas church, killing 26 people, ages 5 to 72. Gun fetishists have already been sending out boilerplate thoughts and prayers, but as people question how a man thrown out of the Air Force for beating his wife and kid was able to own a firearm, Trump says, “it’s a little bit too soon to go into it.”

Last night, the Texas A.G., Ken Paxton, said that more concealed carry firearms would have prevented the shooting.

The same people who brought us the Panama Papers have released the Paradise Papers, detailing the extent of offshore accounts held by filthy rich people and politicos around the world, financial links between Trump and Russia, as well as investments from Queen Elizabeth II, and more.

A complex array of shell companies connecting Russian state-owned businesses with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin were being used to hide hundreds of millions of Ameros in investments from the Kremlin to Facebook and Twitter.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has been caught up in the Paradise Papers too! Oh, looky there, Ross still has business ties to Russian oligarchs that were obscured in offshore bank accounts.

New reporting indicates that there’s AT LEAST nine people around Trump that have spoken to Russians during the campaign or transition. Nine people. Nine.

People are murmuring that Robert Mueller has enough evidence to bring charges on not only Michael Flynn, but his kid, Michael Flynn, as well as wondering whether or not the elder Flynn tried to employ the Art of the Deal swap the rival of Turkish President Recep Erdogan for two million Ameros. WHOA, if true! (It’s true.)

The Russian lawyer lady who met with Trump Jr. about “dirt” on Hillary Clinton was on Russian TV and said that she would would answer all the Senate Judiciary Committee’s questions (as long as it’s public) and that Little Donnie would consider a do-over on anti-Russian funny-money laws if his daddy won.

Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert joined several other Tea Party wackos and introduced a bill to “You’re Fired” Robert Mueller because of his “obvious conflicts of interest,” and his lack of concern about Sean Hannity’s stupid uranium thing.

Senate Republicans are set to unveil their version of the Trump/Ryan tax cuts (for the super rich), but Crom only knows what’s going to be in it as the reconciliation process doesn’t allow them to saddle the US with another trillion Ameros of debt.

Republicans in traditionally blue states are nervously fidgeting after seeing the Trump/Ryan tax cuts (for the super rich) and realizing that they’ll lose their own money if they vote to kill tax write-offs for state and local state and taxes, THEN get crucified at the polls.

Larry Summers has a new op-ed in WaPo eviscerating the Trump/Ryan tax cuts (for the super rich). It is lovely, and very nerdy.

Back in June, Trump and his minions sat down with some Native American tribal leaders and tried to convince them to rape the Mother Earth with big drills, and despite the repeated concerns from the chiefs over legality, Trump told them, “But now it’s me. The government’s different now … Just do it.”

Donna Brazile is walking back her claims that Hillary Clinton rigged the Democratic primary like a bad puppet show, saying she found “no evidence,” as she continues to enjoy what’s left of her fading 15 minutes of fame.

Rand Paul has several broken ribs after his neighbor, apparently, kicked his ass with “high-velocity force.” (Reminder: we only support ass kicking WITH VOTES.)

Rick Perry is throwing a XXXL lifesaver to coal magnate Bob Murray and other companies and trying to disguise it as an energy safety net for America — just as coal companies are on the brink of bankruptcy.

You may remember the story of “Fat Leonard” — a rich creeper who liked to have sexxxy parties and schmooze (bribe) Navy officers. Now the investigation has grown to include more than 440 active and retired personnel, and 60 current and former admirals.

We can’t stress enough how much of a piece of shit Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert is, so here’s a story about him bitching about mothers who need abortions to save their lives, and how six weeks is more than enough time for rape survivors.

As Virginians go to the polls to vote for RACIST dickhole Ed Gillespie or Democratic candidate Ralph Northam, people are wondering if Trumpism is the new way to win elections right when there’s a surge in black activism in politics.

Downstate Republicans in Virginia are getting pissed Ed Gillespie won’t get on his knees and slobber all over Trump’s ring.

Kentucky’s GOP House Speaker Jeff Hoover resigned after admitting to sexting staffers, but House Republicans have decided to hire a private firm to investigate who initially LEAKED claims of sexual harassment against Hoover just as it’s trying to kill the state pension system. Priorities!

A Florida state senator is being accused of sexually harassing six women in the statehouse, so his friends decided to attack the women accusing him of sexual harassment and his rivals.

There’s a deluge of women reporting sexual harassment in statehouses around the country, including hundreds of women in Illinois and California alone, and dozens of women in Massachusetts. [Archive]

Wisconsin Republican Rep. Scott Allen thinks that all you little sluts should be popping out babies instead of harming the labor force with your abortions and your Pills.

Trump’s trip to China is being billed as a “state visit-plus,” so Trump doesn’t get his fee-fees hurt, and the Chinese get A Idiot willing to do their bidding.

According to anonymous sources, Trump was talking with Japanese officials about North Korean rockets flying over Japan and, “could not understand why a country of samurai warriors did not shoot down the missiles.” [h/t C&L]

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has issued an anti-corruption decree, but many see it as a power grab, arresting 11 princes, ministers, and dozens of other officials. Conveniently, Prince Mohammed bin Salman recently hosted Prince Kushner for a sleepover where they stayed up late playing video games, and swapping tips on makeup, genital fluffing, international money laundering strategies, and arresting your opponents.

Saudi authorities are claiming that they intercepted a missile fired by Houthi rebels in Yemen on Saturday, and (as usual) everyone is losing their shit and blaming Iran.

Saudi Prince Mansour Bin Murqin was killed in a helicopter crash near the Yemen border, according to Saudi authorities. His father was the former Crown Prince who was “You’re Fired” to make way for Prince Mohammed bin Salman. [Archive]

Kellyanne Conway went on Brian Stelter’s show and they got into a squabble as Kellyanne kept trying to change the subject, resulting in Stelter bluntly saying, “I understand that you don’t want an adversarial media. I guess you just want everybody to be like Fox News, state-run media.

The anonymous DC cyclist who gave Trump’s motorcade the single-finger Hail to the Chief last week was “You’re Fired” after letting her bosses know, and some people think that’s bullshit (it is).

And here’s your late night wrap-up! Stephen Colbert talked about Trump’s trip to Asia with pens, pineapples and pensJohn Oliver ‘splainered what economic development incentives are, and why you should be concerned; Chelsea Handler had some talky time with Sarah Huckabee SandersBill Maher knows not true thingsSNL recapped Indictment Day with Little Donnie and Eric, and had a cold open shower scene with Trump, Pence and Manafort.

And here’s your morning Nice Time! BABY PARTY OTTERS!

We need your help to keep the lights on and the coffee brewing, so give us some money so we don’t fall asleep at the keyboaaaaaaaaaa

    Even otters cannot help this morning. I had a totally media-free day yesterday so I didn’t hear about the massacre in Texas until this morning. I just cried. Nothing will be done. My Senators (Blumenthal and Murphy) will raise hell and still nothing will happen. From everyone else, thoughts and prayers bullshit instead. Blaming the mentally ill. Zero accountability from the NRA or the Representatives and Senators they have bought.

    FF von Clownstick rehashes the rhetoric that mass shootings aren’t about guns, but about mental health.

    If any of the people who make this claim gave a shit about mental health, FF von Clownstick wouldn’t be President.

    • cmd resistor

      So he just made up shit about this guy’s history of being deranged so he could claim it was a mental health issue.

      • OneYieldRegular

        No, he took this guy’s mental health issues and used them as a way to avoid doing anything about letting people like that have AK-47’s.

        • cmd resistor

          Just seemed like it was too early for him to even know if the guy HAD issues, aside from the obvious ones that would make one think it was ok to go shoot up a church for any reason. But yeah, he said it wasn’t a gun issue, so he must be right. I hate all these people.

    More concealed weapons makes excellent sense, as long as we can ensure that the people concealing the weapons aren’t doing it so that they can surprise, victimize, and slaughter the rest of the congregation. You know, like other law-abiding citizens do.

      The total number of active-duty flag officers is capped at 160 for the Navy. Might seem like a lot, but it’s only enough for ten or twelve daisy chains.

        Hoping to see you. So, way OT, but I was reading about the history of the U2 spy plane last night. I know you were a fighter jock, but holy Mother of God, it sounds like a pilot would’ve had to have been mentally ill or nursing a serious death wish to allow himself to be strapped into one of those things.

        • Marion in Savannah

          Wasn’t it impossible to see the runway when landing? You’re right.

        • From Russia with Love

          I had a friend who flew them. One cool thing is they get up high enough that they can see the earth’s shadow, and when they fly into it everything goes black except the gazillion stars that come out instantly.

          One not so cool thing is if you lose cockpit and pressure suit pressure, you get the bends to death. Another weird thing is that the atmosphere is so thin up there, that their flight regime to not stall the jet but also not rip the wings off is only a few knots from one another. I think the autopilot does most of that work though.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            That last one was the part that struck me…below 98 knots it would drop out of the sky like a stone; over 102 and it would break apart. And they’re stuffed into this thing like Shaq in a VW beetle for a billion hours at a stretch. Gary Powers was probably relieved when he got shot down.

        Ah, yesssss, let the inter-service banter commence…something something Shirley Temple something

        • From Russia with Love

          Sorry. Respect for anybody who went out and did it. However, working in a couple of joint headquarters, it seemed to me that Marine officers were generally easy to get along with and work with, Army officers were assholes who mostly fucked with everybody else so that they would get promoted, and the Navy guys were kinda off in their own little world.

          Of course my AF buddies and I were observing all of this from the safety of the nearest golf course.

          • Major_Major_Major

            I was just a lowly enlisted sailor, so we mostly bitched about the officers regardless of branch and busted each other’s balls. Especially with my friends that went into other branches when we were home on leave at the same time.

      • UncleTravelingMatt

        While there is a statutory “limit” of 160, that limit can be waived when we are at war. We are currently well over the statutory limit. For FY 2016 there were 210 admirals on active duty. Projected for FY 2017: 221. FY 2018: 225.

        So, that’s what good civilian laws are where the military is concerned.

    I read a number of thoughtful Yahoo! comments (hard to believe, I know, but true) about the Colorado Walmart shooting. The issue was the number of people who produced weapons of their own and confused law enforcement about who was the shooter.

    People with CCW licenses said they would not interfere unless they were directly threatened.

    That, at least, makes sense. But now with this terrible Texas church massacre there are the usual idiots who say we need more guns. I’ve written it here before. Makes as much sense as addressing the problem of alcohol abuse by opening more bars.

      That’s right down there with the asshats who said that if people had had gunz in the movie theater in CO, the shooter would have been stopped. In the dark. With people panicking and a smoke bomb used. Yup, sure, you betcha.

    The con morons in Canada are having a tantrum about Justin Trudeau’s ties to the playboy heir of the Seagram ginger ale fortune. According to the Toronto reporter at the Guardian, most Canadians don’t care; it’s nothing but flat soda, and it doesn’t change the fact that Andrew Scheer is still a bigoted, creationist asshole who hates women, Muslims, gays, the French, smart lady astronauts, and probably puppies and kittens too. (But only those kittens that aren’t meaty enough for Harper to eat.)

    Especially when Moneybags Mulroney showed up in the papers and nobody is shocked that Queen Elizabeth has money that she does a thing with. As we all kept saying to the purity ponies about Hillary needing to amass a war chest when they got all holier-than-thou about Bernie’s “grassroots” pocket change: don’t hate the player, hate the game. Well, it appears that enough northerners are smart enough to do just that (for now at least): more people even up there are intrigued by digging into the Trump-Russia connections, because Canadian politics are painfully boring otherwise, and everyone loves a good spy mystery slash dumpster-fire action thriller.

    Current events reporting is now literally a scene from Billy Madison. Not just the Ultimate Insult part everyone associates with the film, but one that takes place earlier on in the story. Scheer is Eric the hotel magnate (not that Eric the hotel magnate, aka Qusay Busay Trump), who dispatches the school janitor to dig up dirt about Billy. He returns with the shocking revelation that “Billy likes to drink soda.” Well, stop the presses at the Daily Planet! Justin likes to drink ginger ale! Meanwhile, Trump wants the Sushi Belushi samurai warriors in Coke-bottle glasses to shoot down Coke-bottle rockets over North Korea…

    This is a pretty bad day. Thanks for double the babby otters.

  • calliecallie

    A double dose of otters and it’s still not enough. America, you’re a mess.

    • Ghenghis McCann

      • calliecallie

        We shouldn’t try to weasel out on that.

      • Impatient

        You’ll need to badger somebody else for it.

    Here’s the thing, though, about the finger-giving bicyclist. It’s unfortunately the same issue as companies firing Nazis; they don’t want those people to be perceived as representing them or their interests. If we support companies firing Nazis because they exercised their right to free speech, we have to support this company firing the bicyclist for the same reason, because she’s a government contractor, and she gave the finger to the top guy in the government. You don’t have to like it (and I don’t) but it has to go both ways. Or we can’t fire people for their personal beliefs at all. If the government pressured the company to fire her, that’s another issue, but that is not evident from the linked story.

    I’m a government contractor. I’m careful – VERY careful – about what I say in public and in any kind of social media. I can get fired for not supporting the government, because your taxes pay my salary. That’s the way it is. Does flipping off an asshole president qualify as not supporting the US government? Well, there’s the issue, and we could probably argue about that for a while. It is absolutely covered under free speech, but as we have argued here repeatedly, getting fired for your views is not a violation of free speech.

    I actually have a lot of respect for this woman; she knew what the risks were, on some level, or she wouldn’t have informed her company. And even after getting fired, she says she’d do it again. THAT is resistance; resisting even at your own personal inconvenience, even when it could cost you something. I wouldn’t have flipped off the president as she did because I’m a wuss, and I’d assume there were photographers present. In fact, I was stuck in traffic waiting for a Dubya motorcade to go by, and I WANTED to give it the finger, but it was shortly after 9/11 and the armored cars were bristling with heavily armed Secret Service/Soldiers hanging out of open doors, and I thought maybe it would be a bad idea. She didn’t think about that; she did what we all wish and think we would do. And she paid a price for it.

    As a PS – She’s going to get job offers. I practically guarantee it.

    • javadavis

      She is in PR – I wish that one of those job offers could be from the DNC. Boy, do they need competent PR work.

      • Jennaratrix

        No SHIT.

    • I would add a slight difference. What she did was obviously political speech. What the nazis do is want to kill everyone else.

      • Jennaratrix

        Their speech is political, too; it’s just politics we don’t like. “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. ” – Evelyn Beatrice Hall

        There’s no way around it; either anyone can be fired for speech someone may disapprove of, or no one can. It’s why I didn’t rejoice when Nazis were fired; because I knew this was coming.

      also a good example of why a robust middle class is essential to a moral (democratic) State. ‘the people’ need to have resources enough (‘a year’s living’ seems thin to me, but how achingly small is that cohort these days?) to make stands on principle despite the inevitable retribution drawn by meaningful resistance. and how curious that one good flip of the bird can clear that bar

  • Mike Steele

    There’s a book: “House of Bush/House of Saud” that hearkens back to the days of yesteryear as old man GHWB slept with Osama’s daddy whenever he was visiting the kingdom. For more reasons than we can count (looking at you, 9/11), find that country more deplorable than the rest of the middle-eastern nations combined. Whatever is going down between Kushner and current alpha-sheik, we KNOW it’s dirty. May this be what brings Cheeto down, and his Russo-Muslim butt buddies, as well.

    This is what I do not get. These fucks had MILLIONS. But they were sooooo greedy they just hadda take that 100k for the ads that got them caught.
    What the actual fuck, techbros

    • HooverVilles

      Enough is never enough with the greedy. If they can squeeze moar from the less fortunate, so be it.

      They will squeeze a nickel so hard the Indian will ride the buffalo.
