Evo praises Venezuelan election, slams Honduran farce

Oh, that Evo. Never could keep his mouth shut…or his tweeter quiet. Just look what he’s been saying about the difference between a democracy and a dictatorship…and no, it’s not who you in the US have been conditioned to think it is:

Bolivian president Evo Morales pointed out the clarity of the municipal elections in Venezuela, which were categorized as free and transparent by Venezuelan electoral authorities, on Monday, compared to the electoral fraud in Honduras in favor of incumbent Juan Orlando Hernández.

“In anti-imperialist countries, they have the election results in less than 24 hours, as yesterday in Venezuela. In countries under imperial rule, as in Honduras, two weeks pass, there are no results, and the people keep hoping that the vote won’t be kept secret from them,” wrote Morales on his Twitter account.

The United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) swept the municipal elections on Sunday, whereas in Honduras, there are indications of electoral fraud and abuse of power in the presidential elections of November 26.

“The fraud in Honduras, with the complicity of the Secretary-General of the OAS and its electoral mission chief and heir of the dictatorship, is the most evident proof that the empire has no use for sovereign peoples, but submissive governments,” added the Bolivian president.

In recent days, Honduran presidential candidate Salvador Nasralla called upon the international community to create a special tribunal to solve the grave political crisis Honduras has gone through following the elections in which he faced off against Hernández.

“In Honduras, once again, @Almagro_OEA2015 has paid tribute to the objectives the US is pursuing in Latin America: preserving its military hegemony, and holding our democracies hostage,” remarked Morales in another tweet.

Translation mine.

Yeah, that’s right, people. Venezuela is the democracy, and Honduras has, ever since the coup of ’09, been a dictatorship. Oh sure, they have “elections” there. With a farcical outcome that’s only to the advantage of one side, and it’s not that of the common Honduran people.

Even sadder, they need foreign leaders like Evo to tell it like it really is. And Evo, as you’ll recall, has experience in tossing out shitty US “diplomats” who couldn’t handle it when the results of a free, fair election turned out not to their own government’s liking.

Bet the Hondurans wish they had an Evo of their own right now.

Donnie’s gross moves…confirmed again!

Former FUX Snooze anchor Juliet Huddy says that Donnie tried to put the moves on her early on in his marriage to Melania. And yes, he was true to form, too:

But of course, he’s now denying that that conversation even happened, even though it’s on the record and Billy Bush has come forward to confirm (and apologize for) it, and everything.

Interestingly, Huddy’s experience falls around the same time period that Donnie made his totally-not-a-confession to Billy Bush, as well as the early days of his spousal relationship with Melania. Seems he “moved like a bitch” on an awful lot of women who wanted nothing to do with him…”star” or not.

Music for a Sunday: Donnie sings!

Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure he’s NOT capable of this much introspection. But kudos to whoever cobbled this together. It’s almost as impressive as this:

Come to think of it, I’m also pretty sure Rusty isn’t capable of this much introspection, either. But hey.

All you good folks who sift through hours of inane babbling to produce these…I salute you. Your sanity is truly taking one for the team.

Wankers of the Week: No more reindeer games

jesus-comes-for-drumpf.jpg

Crappy weekend, everyone! And a very crappy December to one and all. It’s that time of year again…when the pre-holiday tensions start to mount, and the wanks and stupidity mount with them. And here’s who’s flying by the seat of their pants, which are caught on the antlers of Santa’s reindeer…in no particular order:

1. Chuck Fucking Grassley. First cracker out of the box, and boy howdy, is HE projecting! No, of course regular folks won’t spend tax cuts on “booze and women”…because what do you think the Repugs and their private-sector cronies and lobbyists need THAT money for?

2. Nigel Fucking Farage. And speaking of booze and women, shorter him: Britain First! Britain First! But first, give me my EU pension. After all, I deserve it for fucking up Britain’s economic prospects forever!

3. Marek Fucking Zakrocki. While we’re still on the subject of Britain First: Dude, you’re POLISH. You’re not even a Brit. Nevertheless, your touching, terroristic loyalty is duly noted. As is your overt neo-Nazism and your boring, banal machismo. It’s like you fucking clowns learned NOTHING from what happened to your country in World War II, eh?

new-wolfenstein-game.jpg

4. Jack Fucking Hadfield. And speaking of overt neo-Nazis and other associated scum from Britain, we have him. Working for Bitefart with the rest of the usual suspects. And coming up with the same lame old Freeze Peach excuse for it all. If ever a website deserved to be shut down, this one and Stormfront both should be shuttered on the same day. Because it’s two different outhouses for the same damn shit.

5. Richard Fucking Spencer. Meanwhile, Dowdy Dickie couldn’t even file his legal paperwork for nonprofit fund-raising in a timely and proper manner. Whatever happened to that law-abiding “civic” nationalism? Who the hell cares, he doesn’t even need the money…his parents and their inherited slave-plantation fortune are footing all his legal bills, as well as his not-so-legal activities. Just more proof of how fit the so-called “Master Race” really is to run anything.

6. Sydney Fucking White. Man, we are on a neo-Nazi ROLL here, aren’t we, kiddies. And this lesser northern one is truly a sight to behold. Ironically, she likes to lecture on “Studies in Propaganda”. And of course, she would know, seeing as she’s full of it!

silence-breakers.jpg

7. Pamela Fucking Anderson. It pains me to list her, kinda sorta. But seeing as she, a multiple victim of sexual assault and abuse, has decided to go the blame-the-victims route (and accuses anyone who disagrees with her of “groupthink”), well…let’s just say she’s brought this one on herself. Self-policing has never helped ANYONE who’s been sexually assaulted, and I know this one from personal experience. Until everything changes, NOTHING changes. And that means that society as a whole has got to do it…not just us little individual survivors. Because our “agency” does not exist.

8. Tomi Fucking Lahren. On the other hand, I’m not a bit pained to list her…because stupid opportunist is fucking STUPID. Especially when it comes to Venezuela, where she has never been and whose language (Spanish) she probably can’t speak a word of. Because if she did, she’d realize that the toilet-paper shortages there…are fake. Like FUX Snooze. And made in the US of Amnesia too…like you know what and you know who.

9. Brock Fucking Turner. He’s baa-aaack…and he’s trying to clear his not-so-good name, seeing as that sex-offender designation for “20 minutes of action” is about to follow him around for life and spoil his appetite for steaks. How about a HELL NO?

non-accusers.jpg

10. Lou Fucking Dobbs. Yes, he’s still alive. No, dementia hasn’t killed him yet. But it HAS eaten his brain. Sadly, though, not enough of it to make him stop moving his mouth.

11. John Fucking McCain. Yes, he’s still alive, too. No, brain cancer hasn’t killed him yet. And while that might make his “please clap” moment seem rather sad, may I take this moment to remind you that in one of the last votes of his career, he has taken all hope of treatment away from others in the same boat as he, which is entirely in keeping with the fact that he’s also a man who once referred to his own lovely wife as a “cunt”? In other words: Sorry, NOT sorry, John.

12. Walter Eugene Fucking Brazington, Jr. We are known by the company we keep…and in this pimp — oh sorry, preacher-man’s case, it’s the kind of company you can hire for pay, by the hour. And, bonus! She’s also a “proud” white supremacist…oh sorry, “Aryan”. (Wait till she learns that the word doesn’t mean what she thinks it means.)

where-is-your-chin.jpg

13. Dustin Fucking Hoffman. It pains me to list him…a whole lot less than I once thought it would, to be honest. Mainly because he’s accusing John Oliver of doing to him what he’s been doing to himself since the dawn of his acting career, at the very least. Longer, in fact, if what he once told Playboy is any indication.

14. Elaine Fucking Chao. Thanks a lot…for a whole lotta NOTHING, Elaine. What do you think working women have been doing for fucking FOREVER? If that response (or non-repsonse, rather) is the best you’ve got, you’re not fit for the job you’re supposed to be doing.

15. Andrew Fucking Anglin. Bawwwww, snowflake, diddums. Izzums unhappy that oo look like shit? Well, suck it up, buttercup…because you ARE a shit. A racist, fascist, NAZI shit. Fuck your feelings, snowflake.

repug-molester.jpg

16. Dylan Fucking Howard. Oh, I am so SHOCKED that a leading tabloid attack dog for Donnie & Co. turns out to be a sexual molester…said no woman EVER.

17. Jeff Fucking Fogg. You know you’re crooked when you can’t make one corruption court date…because you’ve been arrested for another such incident, this time in El Salvador. Ha, ha.

18. Bethany Fucking Sherman. Awww, wookit da widdle Nazi, whining and pouting when she’s been found out! Sad news, snowflake: Your “I’m just proud of being white” act ain’t fooling anyone. And you got fired for it? You had it coming. Once more, with feeling: If you’re a Nazi and you’re fired, it’s your fault! (clap clap) f you’re a Nazi and you’re fired, it’s your fault! (clap clap) If you’re spotted in the mob, and you lose your fuckin’ job, if you’re a Nazi and you’re fired, IT’S YOUR FAULT! (clap clap, stomp stomp, YEE-HAW!)

racist-scarred.jpg

19. Daryl Fucking Metcalfe. Oh, you’re a heterosexual? Congratulations. It must be so hard for you not to catch the gay from all the men you only imagine must be after your ass. I, for one, fully expect to hear that one day, you’ve been busted for taking a wide stance in a public washroom.

20. Nick and Sarah Fucking Jensen. Let’s list them as a unit, shall we…because they are united in their homophobia, hypocrisy, dumbth…and oh yeah, despite their earlier promise to get divorced if same-sex marriage becomes legal in Australia, they’re also still legally a unit, too!

21. Heather Fucking Higgins. Lame excuse is LAME. Just because something was “not that unusual” in Alabama 40 years ago doesn’t mean it’s actually acceptable to do, EVER. Remember, they used to lynch black folks in Alabama not so long ago, too.

already-dating-her.jpg

22. Ralph Fucking Shortey. And in other news of IOKIYAR, we have him…caught on camera with a teenage boy, and still claiming nothing’s wrong. Even though child sex trafficking is very wrong, and ol’ Shorteyes knows it. But the best part of all is his shirt: Ephesians 5:22, which tells women to “submit to their husbands”, coupled with the old “make me a sammitch” canard. Oddly enough, though, Ephesians is completely silent about letting your husband fuck prostituted children behind your back. Is boy-buggering also a “sacred Christian tradition”, along with those obscene shirts?

23. Erik Fucking Prince. And speaking of “sacred Christian traditions” that are really questionable…how about that one of running mercenary armies? Yeah. He went there.

24. Roy Fucking Moore. Have we listed ol’ Roy Boy again yet this week? No? Well, here he is, saying some absolutely incredibly fuckwitted things about the “family values”…of SLAVERY.

repug-jesus-knows.jpg

25. Trent Fucking Franks. I know it’s often been said that Repugs just see women as sex-dispensing machines and incubators, but it’s still kind of shocking (and gross) to see one of them being so damn literal about it and all. Dude, The Handmaid’s Tale is a cautionary fable, NOT an instruction manual!

26. Steve Fucking King. Haven’t listed him in a while, but hey. Here he is, showing that he’s still full fascist, and even quoting a Hungarian fascist (their embarrassingly awful prime monster), to boot. Iowa, just when ARE you planning on feeding this one to the Children of the Corn?

27. Ryan Fucking Zinke. Meanwhile, in Montana, All Hat And No Cattle decided that since there are no swamps in that state to be drained, he’s gonna just dig his own…and fill it with luxury air travel at taxpayers’ expense.

dick-inside.jpg

28. Bryan Fucking Singer. Of COURSE he’ll probably work with Kevin Fucking Spacey…that is, if either of them ever works again. After all, they not only share the same proclivities, they also went to the same parties, where the same awful shit went down…and Hollywood is starting to enter purge mode. In other words: Good luck finding work, fellas, you’re gonna need it!

29. Sebastián Fucking Piñera. Not that he’s not a wanker all the time, but dude, do not EVER open your mouth about trans kids. There is no way you can keep your foot out of it.

30. Yonatan Fucking Razel. If your extremist religiosity doesn’t permit you to look at women, and you thus can’t do so without having “impure” thoughts and needing to tape your eyes shut…why the hell are you even performing at a music festival specifically aimed AT women?

where-is-the-clitoris.jpg

And finally, to Lauren Fucking Southern, Tara Fucking McCarthy, and all the other too-dumb-to-live Little Hitlerettes of the so-called “alt”-right. Yes, folks, they’re shocked, SHOCKED to find actual Nazi attitudes in their we-are-so-not-Nazis Nazi movement. And they’re shocked, SHOCKED to find that those Little Hitlers want them to shut up, go home, make sammitches, and start popping out the 14-words babies. Even dumber (and funnier) still, they want to think that those “low status anonymous trolls” who make up their entire fucking movement are leftist feminists trying to “cultivate gender infighting”. No, idiotesses, we’re not behind it…because we don’t need to be. Your side really IS that full of shit, always has been, and now it’s all over your faces. Even the Germans have noticed how awful you all smell. All we’re doing is holding our ribcages together as we keel over laughing and pointing at all of you.

Good night, and get fucked!

Sam Seder back at MSNBC, Mike Cernovich still a rapey assbag

Congrats to MSNBC for finally learning to recognize actual satire, well after the fact.

As for YOU, Mikey: If you’re gonna play at that petty, vicious game, then guess what tweets of yours are going to keep getting dredged up?

Yeah. Those ones. And your rape apologia in other formats, too.

I’m just counting the days until it’s YOU getting arrested, Mikey. Tick tock.

PS: Sign and support the petition, folks, it’s time to take Mikey DOWN.

Donnie’s dumbass provocation

Rami Khouri tells The Real News why Donnie’s unilateral decision to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel and to move the US embassy there will be an epic fail.

Meanwhile, there are other things to be concerned about that emerged during the same speech where Donnie decided to go all unilateral in up-ending Mideast peace. Namely: what the hell is the matter with Donnie’s BRAIN?

Republican strategist Steve Schmidt said President Donald Trump shows clear signs of physical and mental decline — and he challenged GOP lawmakers to speak up.

The president slurred his words during the announcement Wednesday that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and Schmidt said Trump’s apparent impairment was even noticeable on the radio, without the visuals of television.

“It’s not the first instance, he’s clearly slurring his words,” Schmidt told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I don’t know what the cause of it is, but when you combine it with (Sen.) Bob Corker’s critique that the president of the United States is unstable, that he’s dangerous, when you look at the private comments that are made by members of Congress around his stability, you look at his actions in recent weeks.”

“We look at the reality that on this day we talk about the Churchill-Roosevelt relationship where the president of the United States is not welcome in the United Kingdom, where there is a consensus among both parties in Great Britain that his presence next to the queen is an assault on her dignity by him standing next to her,” Schmidt continued. “When you look at all of this, this is worthy of discussion. The question of his fitness, of his stability, is in the air, and it doesn’t get better when you see clear impairments. I don’t know, is that a tooth problem? Is that something else?”

Trump’s personal physician, who Schmidt compared to a character in the slapstick “Cannonball Run” movies, claimed Trump was the “healthiest individual ever elected” — but otherwise no details are publicly available about his fitness.

“Presidents every year typically to Bethesda Naval Hospital for a checkup,” Schmidt said. “This president, to my knowledge, is departing that. We don’t know what’s going on, but this is a legitimate issue worthy of consideration. This is the man who commands America’s nuclear arsenal. That video, that speech, that impairment is chilling.”

Impairment seems a harsh word, but it’s exactly the right one. Donnie is impaired — by what is not yet clear — and he’s not complying with the official health checks required of him, either. We wouldn’t trust him behind the wheel of a car in the state he’s in. Why is anyone trusting him with the reins of the most powerful government in the world?

The Montréal Massacre: Why it STILL matters (and will never stop mattering)

Ten years after that terrible mass murder on this day in ’89, Francine Pelletier — a Québec journalist specifically mentioned on Marc Lépine’s kill list — delved into the whys and wherefores of the Massacre. Not just what made Lépine a “deranged” killer, but also what he in turn left behind. And why this act was not that of a mere madman, but of a political assassin with terroristic purposes in mind. Because it was done specifically to cow women and drive them out of the engineering profession, among others.

Fortunately, despite years of persistent setbacks ever since, the Massacre failed to accomplish what its perpetrator intended for it to do. Women are still leaving the house, still getting educations, still working, still progressing. Even I, who was a student at the time and the same age as many of the victims, and who spent the next year and a half looking over my shoulder everywhere I went, never even contemplated giving up my studies.

We may be persecuted, we may be threatened, raped, even killed, but we are not looking back. Or GOING back.

Q. Is Donnie serious about normalizing relations with Cuba?

A. Are you serious? FUCK NO. Look who he wants to send as a diplomat — not even an ambassador, just a “diplomat” — to the island:

The Trump administration has named career diplomat Philip Goldberg to head the all-but-abandoned U.S. embassy in Havana, according to three sources familiar with the matter, at a time of heightened tensions between the United States and Cuba.

Goldberg has lengthy experience in a number of countries, and was described by a U.S. congressional aide on Monday as “career and the best of the best”.

But his appointment may ruffle feathers in Havana. He was expelled from Cuba’s socialist ally Bolivia in 2008 for what President Evo Morales claimed was fomenting social unrest.

“Fomenting social unrest?” That’s putting things a bit TOO “diplomatically”, Reuters. I think you mean that he went there with the intent of fomenting a COUP. Because Goldilocks, if you’ve been reading this blog for that long, you will recognize as having met with some actual Bolivian putschists:

Philip Goldberg (right) meeting with Bolivian putschist Rubén Costas (left)

Yeah, THAT happened. And Evo kicked Goldilocks out for spying, to boot. Goldilocks has been persona non grata ever since. Evo, meanwhile, stuck to his guns, and is still president.

Now, Fidel Castro may no longer be living, but his brother Raúl is still very much presente, and very much presidente, too. And Cuba is still very much aligned with Evo’s Bolivia, and thanks to Donnie’s aggressive belligerence and determination to undo what Obama tried to accomplish in his last year, they’re deeply skeptical of Gringolandia — more so than they have been at any time since the CIA murdered Che Guevara in Bolivia. What are the odds that they will accept this new “diplomat” at this new low in US-Cuban relations?

Oh, I’d say about the same as a snowball’s chance at making it through a Cuban baseball game at any time of year.

That’s right…they fired Sam Seder for deploying sarcasm. And they believed Mike Fucking Cernovich, who is a self-admitted rapist (and Cenk nails his rapey ass to the wall with his own words).
