The fakery and the fakes



 Retweeted
Are you talking about Trump or Obama?







Excellent point.  We are facing a huge number of problems but these problems didn't emerge this year or last year or in 2017. 

The issue with the destruction of our planet?  Barack was going to address all of that.  Did we forget that?  He didn't do anything of substance.  He was bought and paid for by the corporations, he wasn't going to rock the boat.

Speaking of disgusting . . .

Alyssa Milano and her beau Joe Biden.

  1. If and only if you give $2,800 you get to take a photo with . I’m so deeply grateful that has never and will never do such a thing. It’s gross.
  2. : Alyssa Milano officially becomes the first person under the age of 75 to endorse Joe Biden.

  1. Just when you thought Alyssa couldn’t become any more deranged and vapid. ๐Ÿ™„ ($2800 for a selfie)
  2. Dear celebrities, We are never ever EVER going to vote for Joe Biden. Fuck off. Love, America

  1. Just a small donation gets you a selfie with Uncle Joe & maybe even your hair sniffed. Good times. Support the working man’s campaign to continue the oligarchy. Alyssa Milano to Co-Host Fundraiser for Joe Biden via
  2. Hey are you raising money for a ? If so, that's gross.
  3. Dont worry about it. Alyssa is a nut case!
  4. 2) The donor class dems are the past....an active and knowledgeable populism is the future.
  5. Poor Alyssa. She must prefer her POTUS's to simply speak well as they deport black & brown people, or when they drop so many bombs in a year on brown people they run out of them, or when they let nearly 6 mil families lose their homes but banksters & war criminals walk free.
  6. Replying to 
    Dear millions of suffering Americans + those desperately fighting on their behalf. We are very intellectual wealthy and also very busy purchasing and decorating our $15M beach homes, stop criticizing us for being sell outs!!! signed, and and
  7. Just in case you missed it. Alyssa Milano uses to keep people triggered and coming back to her- while she sheep dogs Americans to neo liberalism and to the establishment, again for the interests of the 1%. If you fell for it - you got suckered.


  1. Next month, is hosting a fundraiser for Joe Biden at the Pacific Palisades home of an entertainment executive. The most basic ticket is $500, but for $2,800 you can get a picture with Joe! (unclear if it comes with a non-groping guarantee).
  2. Replying to  
    Hypocrisy is claiming to support Me Too and doing fundraisers for Creepy Uncle Joe Biden.

Americans this is what results when Democracy is abandoned 4 the Oligarchy that now controls our Government. This life long Democrat demands that it is time to revolt and take it back. Back Bernie & end this nonsense.


  1. Replying to 
    Please spare me Alyssa. You have never once supported or retweeted the most progressive and for the people candidate running. You are helping Joe Biden buy the nomination with corporate lobbyists. I’m very disappointed.
  2. Replying to 
    Since you're for no thank you.
  3. Replying to 
    Alyssa Me-too Milano is hosting a fundraiser for Joe mansplaning Biden. Why the most sexist candidate on the Democratic field? ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝ‍♀️


"Iraq snapshot" (THE COMMON ILLS):
Thursday, October 31, 2019.  Another US service member dies in Iraq as protests continue.


Kyle Rempfer (ARMY TIMES) reports:

 A U.S. soldier supporting the Inherent Resolve coalition in Iraq died Sunday, Pentagon officials announced Wednesday morning.

Sgt. Nathan G. Irish died in a non-combat incident at Camp Taji, sometimes called Camp Cooke, in the Baghdad Governorate.


Ellen Mitchell (THE HILL) adds, "Irish was assigned to the 25th Brigade Support Battalion, 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team based in Fort Wainwright, Alaska."


US soldier Sgt. Nathan G. Irish died in Camp Taji 3 days ago in a non-combat incident, as per US DoD.





Jean and I are praying for the Irish family during this difficult time. We are grateful for Nathan's service and will keep those close to him in our thoughts.


๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๐Ÿ™ OUR CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND FELLOW SOLDIERS OF SGT. NATHAN G. IRISH.๐Ÿ•ฏ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ




Nathan G. Irish was 23 years old -- seven years older than the Iraq War itself.  The ongoing war.  I can remember when a man was traveling around the United States in 2007 and 2008 and insisting that ,if he became president, all US troops would come home.  Speech after speech, he said that.  He did become president, President Barack Obama, and he had two terms in the White House but he left with US troops still in Iraq.  Steve Bullock would like to be president.  He's running for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination currently.  Currently he's the Governor of Montana and he issued this statement:


Lisa and I are heartbroken over the loss of Sgt. Nathan Irish. As a state and nation, we ask our brave soldiers and their families to sacrifice so much to keep our nation and communities safe. We send our condolences to Sgt. Irish’s loved ones during this difficult time.

That photo's from his FACEBOOK page.



Nathan Irish updated his profile picture.
July 15

He noted in August, when he deployed to Iraq:

Getting on the C-130 to head to Iraq and I see “City of Missoula” stenciled on the side, a Montana license plate hanging in the cockpit, and a Montana flag hanging in the cargo bay. Halfway across the world and it feels like I’m 6 hours from home.

He should never have been sent over there.

If Steve Bullock wants to issue condolences and run for president, maybe Bullock should take some time to comment on US troops still in Iraq.  Or does he think the best candidate is the one who has no position on foreign wars?

The cat doesn't have Steve's tongue when it comes to talking about the other candidates.  He's been very vocal when it comes to Joe Biden's potential use of a SuperPac.  He's against that.  He just shrouds in mystery his position on never-ending wars.

On the topic of Joe Biden, Cameron Easley (MORNING CALL) crunches the numbers of various Democratic candidates in a face off with Donald Trump for the 2020 election and finds that Joe Biden has slipped.  Of the top three Cameron looks at -- Joe, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren -- only Elizabeth has increased her percentage since June which leads Easley to note:

But polling suggests that many primary voters are backing Biden because of his perceived general-election strength. Forty percent of Democratic primary voters said in September that they thought Biden has the best chance of beating Trump in 2020, more than twice the share who said the same of any other candidate. To that extent, declining returns in head-to-head matchups against Trump may pose a unique risk to his prospects for securing the nomination.


In Iraq, protests continue.  FRANCE 24 speaks with Feurat Alani (author of THE PERFUME OF IRAQ).




Alissa J. Rubin (NEW YORK TIMES) reports:



Under pressure from a growing number of protesters, Iraq’s prime minister appeared likely Wednesday to step down in the coming days, although exactly when is the subject of negotiations between two powerful Shiite Muslim leaders.
In a letter to one of the men, the cleric Moktada al-Sadr, Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said he would be willing to resign and call early elections. But Mr. Mahdi insisted that it be done according to the procedures in the Constitution.

That's hilarious.  If the Constitution had been followed, he wouldn't be prime minister.  Your named prime minister designate and from that day you have 30 days to put together a Cabinet.  But it was over six months later before he found a Minister of Interior and a Minster of Defense.  He never should have been prime minister per the Constitution so it's hilarious that now, to save his job, he's saying the Constitution must be followed.
