Trump and Lil’ Fucker Scott Walker make America again with Chinese workers!

From here:

Foxconn Hopes to Staff New Wisconsin Plant With Robots and Chinese Workers

So this is the return of great American greatness with no American workers.  I’ve read in other places that the workers at this Foxconn plant will be housed at a nearby slaughterhouse where they can pick up a little overtime and displace a few more American workers.

But seriously, who puts the con in Foxconn?  Yup, Lil’ Fucker Scott Walker and his big orange buddy El Trump-o!

Adios Lil’ Fucker, it’s no wonder Wisconsinites sent you packing when you give giant tax breaks and this is what the state gets back.

Music for 11/9/18!!! Laura Jane Grace, Planningtorock

@@@ Laura Jane Grace: Bought to Rot (Bloodshot, 2018) Brisk punk right out of the gate from this release I got to via the All Music notable release email. After a little quietude in the verse, they get into a brief, furious pissy punk smashup. I hate these records with great songs cuz it gets my hopes up. Let’s peep some more. I’m on the third tune and I like this record but I like that first tune the most of what I heard. It’s the first tune for a reason. Okay, I’ve gotten all confused regarding whether the singer is male or female. When I went to the GoogleTube I see that the singer is trans so that explains everything and lifts the confusion.

@@@ Planningtorock: Powerhouse (DFA, 2018) This electronic record is also from this week’s All Music notable release email. The first tune is a torchy voice and synth tune called ‘wounds’ but the second tune Transome, (clipped below) is the full computer band. Drum machine, synth bass, melodic synth and a vocal synth-ed out voice. The third tune, Dear Brother, is the most interesting tune of what I’ve heard. It’s autobiographical with a playful synth figure, an interesting beat and autobiographical lyrics. I dig it and comes off as beautiful and heartfelt. He keeps singing ‘I wrote this song so I can forgive you.’ Working one’s shit out through art — there are much worse ways to work one’s shit out. I like a bunch of tunes and it’s cool to hear a dancefloor type of record with singer songwriter type of lyrics.

Is this dick news or fake dick news? I’m betting it’s true dick news.

From CNBC here:

President Donald Trump was involved in “nearly every step” of hush-money agreements with multiple women who claimed they had sexual affairs before he became president, according to The Wall Street Journal.

It never happened, he never put his dick in any of these women.

Fake dick news people, nothing to see here.

Trump’s new AG is a truth bending piece of shit like his boss!

From the Daily Beast here:

“The last thing they want right now is for the truth to come out, and for the fact that there’s not a single piece of evidence that demonstrates that the Trump campaign had any illegal or any improper relationships with the Russians. It’s that simple.”

This is our fantastic new attorney general.

If this was all made up shit the FBI guy wouldn’t have people going to jail and flipping every person close to Trump.

But he wants to bend reality instead of letting the investigation run its course.  He doesn’t know what Meuller knows but he’s willing to step in and fill the space with his bullshit.

If it turns out that there was absolutely nothing why would Meuller have not dissolved the investigation immediately?

This dude is a piece of shit right out of the gate.

 

Music for 11/8/18!!! Fucked Up, Jerusalem in my heart, Frontperson

@@@ Fucked Up: Dose Your Dreams (Merge, 2018) Matador mainstays drop a classic punk biscuit on the Merge imprint. They’ve added a few non punk touches like a little horn here and there as well as some synths and interestingly a female background vocal chorus. The singer sounds a whole bunch like an old school cigarettes and whiskey shredded windpipe hard living fella. It’s a concept record/song cycle but I’m listening to it as tunes because I can’t grok the singer when he’s going quickly on the mic. These guys are obviously tight as fuck and know what they can do in a studio having been around the block more than once — I like the tunes without loving them. The fifth tune, Normal People (clipped below), is the best of what I heard.

@@@ Jerusalem in My Heart: Daqa’iq Tudaiq (Constellation, 2018) Contemporary Arabic music mixed with electronic music or contemporary Arabic electronic music, I’m not really sure. I’m on the third tune and it’s more contemporary Arabic music with some electronic music garnishes. I’m not sure regular readers caught the excellent Arabic electronic record Acid Arab out on Crammed Discs last year but it’s not that. These days I’m more up for the integrated smashup of Arabic melodies and electronic music and this flirts with that more than goes fully into it. If you like Arabic music check it out, if you like electronic music check out Acid Arab.

@@@ Frontperson – Frontrunner (Oscar St) All of today’s releases I got to via the weekly CFUV playlist email. This one is more straight indie with a symphonic feel and a serious tone. This is not a beer can smashing party here at all. The second tune switches up into a more Crosby, Stills, and Nash vocal harmonies thing. I’m struggling to find the right adjectives to describe the vibe of this record. It’s not art school, it’s not proggy, it’s partially indie, not particularly folky but it’s a lot of sophisticated harmonies over a mostly straight indie band. I guess it’s an old school hippie/indie record. I like some of the singing and it’s an interesting formula they’re using.

Trump brings another corrupt scumbag on board!

From the Guardian here:

Donald Trump’s new acting attorney general was part of a company accused by the US government of running a multimillion-dollar scam.

Matthew Whitaker was paid to sit on the advisory board of World Patent Marketing, which was ordered in May this year to pay a $26m settlement following legal action by federal authorities, which said it tricked aspiring inventors.

This is just what we need, another crooked hack!

 

Fuck Motel 6!

From Reuters here:

(Reuters) – Motel 6 will pay up to $7.6 million to Hispanic guests to settle a proposed class-action lawsuit claiming that it violated their privacy by regularly providing guest lists to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

Talk about loyalty to your customers or lack thereof!
