Chinese to resist better than Democratic assholes!

Headline from the Guardian:

Chinese retaliatory tariffs aim to hit Trump in his electoral base

Karma is a bitch….


However, racist ass Bloomberg will only support shitbirds like himself

From the New York Times:

Michael R. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, will throw his personal fortune behind the Democratic campaign to take control of the House of Representatives.

I had the misfortune of enduring three terms of El Shrimpo von Bloompants and his stop and frisk bullshit, his persecution of bikers, his generally classist bullshit.

And let’s remember he overturned rules in place to get that third term because we needed him so badly.

This is no solution to the problems we have as Bloomberg looks great on the surface but there’s much bullshit and ill bitch nonsense as soon as he opens his mouth.

Child separation one more notch in a long tradition of criminalizing non white folks

This all accelerated after 9/11 when a lot of illegal anti-Muslim shit went down.  Making all Muslims pay for what 19 assholes did with a couple of planes.  Both parties participated in this.

Next came stop and frisk.  10+ million illegal, unconstitutional stops designed to harass and discourage young African Americans from illegal activity.  Again make all black youth pay for the behavior of some black youth.

Now you see Trump (and Obama and Bush) criminalizing Latin political refugees for fleeing unsafe conditions in their home countries.  Given humiliating treatment and deportation (2 million deported under Barack Obama) you have to believe that people are coming here out of desperation not because they think they will be welcomed.

So this not some nation of laws bullshit, it’s just plain old racist criminalizing of non white folks because it’s politically popular with asshole, racist white voters.

Music for 6/20/18!!! Beyonce and Jay Z, Witch Prophet, Cancer Bats

ncer B@@@ Beyonce & Jay Z: Boss (UMG, 2018) I can’t offer a video for this tune as UMG is all over the GooglePimp trying to lock down their copyright on what has thus far been a good but not great collaboration between Beyonce and Jay Z. This tune is an interesting blend of hip hop and classic soul and Beyonce does a better job here. I like the horn lines. It’s a diss track but I find their constant reminders of how rich they are to be incredibly boring and borderline offensive. This video clipped below may or may not have music in it, Lord the Interwebz can be such a drag.

@@@ Witch Prophet: The Golden Octave (88 Days of Fortune, 2018) Some indie r&b/soul off this week’s CFUV playlist email. After a lovely vocal only first tune it gets into a more standard r&b tune with drum machine, bass, and synth centered arrangements. I’m on the third tune and there’s an interesting slant to the record. The production is not lo fi but it’s certainly not nu r&b lush so it has a slight sharpness to it and then a lot of vocals get layered over it. This tune (clipped below), the fifth on the record, is the best of what I checked out and a good example of how the record is put together.

@@@ Cancer Bats: The Spark That Moves (Batskull/New Damage, 2018) Some mainstream, riffy metal that is not cheesy. At this point I find extensive and standard guitar riffs to be a tad cheesy but it’s certainly not art school/pretentious meta. The singer has an emo shredded tone of voice so this changes the vibe here with no epic, leather pants wearing rock hero action here. This is for folks who don’t like messy pissedness of a great punk record or the deep anti social bile of a great metal record. It’s a bit of a prepackaged rebellion thing but the band is strong and if you like guitar riffs get out your big Slurpy cup cuz they have that going in spades!

Is detaining families with their children as in the past acceptable? I don’t think so.

From here:

Well, I think it’s right to criticize the Trump administration’s family separation policy, but I think it’s important to not lose sight of the fact that the Obama administration and the Bush administration, before President Trump, preceded the family separation policy with the policy of detaining families, and detaining women, mothers, alongside their children locked up behind barbed wire.

Excerpt 2:

The Obama administration presided over the largest immigration detention system in the nation’s history, and that’s often overlooked.

So this will be somewhat of a hollow victory when Trump stops separating children from their families and rejoins previous Presidents that detained families crossing the border.

It seems almost fantastical to think the United States could help the Latin countries solve some of the problems they have maintaining safety without setting up death squads.

The truth is that American intervention in Latin America and support for all manner of foul rulers there has contributed to the decline in safety in those places.

So all the fake liberals and good hearted folks will claim victory when Trump stops separating children from their families but they won’t give a shit about the new/old reality of detaining and criminalizing immigrants.


Fact: Trump stole Dem voters as Dems screwed them over and over

From the Guardian here:

North-east Minnesota was once a Democratic bastion. For decades, the ore-miners of the Iron Range counties and the steelworkers of Duluth voted for candidates like Hubert Humphrey and Paul Wellstone. But the steelworks closed and automation reduced jobs in the mines. And voters discovered Trump.
