Rudy Giuliani, you are treading on thin ice.
« Reply #391 on: October 26, 2019, 03:22:27 pm »

Agelbert ponders this "clumsy mistake" by Giuliani:


I smell a limited hangout combined with a veiled threat to spill some beans on Trumpy if Giuliani don't get more money pronto to buy (or bop) some pesky Republicans who are increasingly "disloyal" to Herr Trump.

Giuliani knows where ALL the bodies, metaphorical and actual, are buried. That said, he is on VERY thin Russian ice here. If Giuliani is trying to shakedown his (and, of course, Trump's) top sugar daddy (Putin) for some more loot, he had better bring a sandwich and a lot of security.

Yes, that ant fungus is quite interesting.
« Reply #392 on: October 26, 2019, 04:46:00 pm »

Yes, that fungus is quite interesting. You see, it doesn't just turn infected ants into "zombies" (an embarrassingly unscientific word used by the NYT to descrbe ant fungal infection epidemiology); it causes the ants to do something VERY SPECIFICALLY BENEFICIAL to the fungus that I noted in an article I wrote some years ago. Please note that the action of these ants dying from the fungus is exactly opposite to what all "high order" complex life forms, including this same species of ants 👀 when they are dying from injury, lack of food or some non-fungal disease, DO (i.e. hide) when they are dying.

SNIPPET:

The more complex a life form becomes, the less flexible, adaptable and the more fragile it becomes. That is why I think the Darwinian approach to species interaction in the biosphere severely understates the fragility of "higher" organisms.

Just as a type of fungus can infect the brain of an ant species to climb before it dies and thereby aid in fungal sporulation, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that the symbiotic bacteria that constitute a high percentage of the human genes (we cannot metabolize our food without them so they are an inseparable part of being a human) actually drove our evolution simply to aid in the spread of the bacteria.

No, I don't believe that for a second, but it shows that Darwinian "🐵 logic" can be used to claim the exact opposite of what the Darwinians claim is the "fittest" ;) species.

Laugh if you want, but which is a higher organism, the fungus or the ant?

👍 Surly,
That is an ineresting article you posted covering the Intelligencer interview with Steve Schmidt. I read it carefully. Steve Schmidt clearly understands the Trumpism problem destroying the fabric of American society and government.

Quote
My perspective is that the Republican Party is profoundly corrupted by Donald Trump and it has been corrupted by a tolerance for all and any type of amoral and immoral behavior. Tolerance for astounding levels of corruption and exposure of hypocrisy from the religious far-right leaders like Falwell, to everybody who screamed and shouted about some perfidious act that Obama or the Clintons allegedly committed. Trump has remade the Republican Party into an isolationist, grievance-driven, resentment-driven political party. The party looks like what it might have looked like if George Wallace had captured its nomination and become president. But nobody should underestimate Trump’s capacity to destroy the Democratic Party as an institution.

In the above paragraph, though Schmidt, being a staunch CAPITALIST, will not admit it, is the correct underlying premise that the REASON Trump has the very real capacity to destroy the Democratic Party as an institution, is that the Democratic Party LEADERSHIP is ALSO guilty of bought and paid for tolerance for all and any type of amoral and immoral behavior.

IOW, while accurately defining the situation, Schmidt fails to see that the solution lies in the wholesale rejection of bought and paid for tolerance for all and any type of amoral and immoral behavior.

The "Capitalism good, Socialism bad" erroneous assumption Schmidt has of the world view of most of the American electorate is what causes him to give Mr. Trump and his wrecking crew more persuasive power than they actually have to influence voters. Schmidt thinks the MONEY "advantage" that Trump has is the main factor. Again, that is a failing based on the "Money is IT" flawed Capitalist world view.

Consequently, Schmidt views the 2020 election like a "close" horse race between the Democratic Candidate and Trump.

He is wrong.

I'm going to tell you right now that Trump will NOT "serve" (a verb that never did apply to Trump - he never serves anybody but himself) a second term. And yeah, as trite and naive as it sounds, the reason he is going away is BECAUSE the overwhelming majority of the American voting public have realized, with no room for doubt whatsoever, that our government, like the GOP, has been profoundly corrupted by Donald Trump's EMBRACE, never mind "tolerance", for all and any type of amoral and immoral behavior.

Yeah, the leadership at the Democratic Party (DLC) does not get that. That is why Sanders has a much higher chance of being their candidate than they realize. The DLC, like Schmidt, ALSO cannot see past their "Money is IT" flawed Capitalist world view.

All that said, the Republicans are not totally blind to the threat from a public that polls positively on any and all expansions of U.S. "socialist" programs. They know their Orange Fascist 🦀 Hero is on the ropes. So, knowing Trump cannot win fairly, their mens rea modus operandi will be in-our-faces voter suppression like nothing this country has ever seen before.

THAT is not going to work either!

Yes, they also have a plan for that eventuality: Trump will cancel the election with an executive order based on "National Security"...

And then Trump will be forced to leave. The uproar will be so massive that he will have no choice. He will NOT be able to "walk it back". He will be unceremoniously escorted out of the White House and taken to a "secure location" (i.e. imprisoned with ZERO access to outside communication) pending the final vote count.

ANY Supreme Court Fascist that tries to protest will be quietly read the "we will impeach your ass PRONTO if you do not STFU NOW" riot act by some Congressional heavies.

Wishful thinking? That's what Schmidt thinks. Like I said before, he is wrong.

He forgot that DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST Sanders would have beat Trump in a LANDSLIDE in 2016, had the DLC not rigged the nomination for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

He forgot that Trump got people to vote for him MOSTLY because they believed his LIES about DEFENDING "SOCIALIST" PROGRAMS like Medicare, Social Security AND Unemployment Compensation. Trump, instead of "draining the corruption based swamp", as he promised, has put it on steroids.

The people HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN WHO LIED TO THEM. All the ads on Fox News and Facebook claiming otherwise will not change the day to day GUTTED Government SAFETY NET SOCIAL PROGRAMS REALITY those people, thanks to Trump doing the EXACT OPPOSITE of what he promised, are cruelly forced to live with so Trump can further enrich himself and his swamp critter 1% greedball pals.

Trump would NOT have "won" with just the racist (and evangelical, but I repeat myself) voters. In addition to the Russian successful election rigging fun and games, Schmidt forgets that the DLC GAVE TRUMP THAT ELECTION!

🦅 Lin HollenbachMaine:

Who the hell does Nate Silver think he is? Same with Joe Scarborough. Those of us with hearts and souls have not had a good day since trump took office. Not just all the lies, including the ones over the weekend, but what he's done to people. To Americans. The people at the border haven't had a good day. Not one. The children have not had one good day. The farmers are not having a good day. People with Healthcare needs have not had a good day. People with low incomes have not had a good day. Families whose loved ones have been taken away because of gun violence that he encourages have not have it had a good day . I know I can think of other people who have not had a good day since trump took office. But right now I am so pissed off because someone thinks trump should have one good day.

Exactly RIGHT!!!

How the Supreme Court and the morbidly rich are ruining democracy in America


rawstory.com - People being killed by wildfires in California and people dying because they can’t afford their insulin are the same thing. Both represent the capture of government by corporations—in other words, both are symptoms of democracy in the United States being replaced by a corporate state with little regard for morality, life or the law.

In 1976, for the first time in America’s history, five conservatives on the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that rich people owning their own personal politicians was constitutionally protected because the money they were using to buy legislators and legislation was “free speech.” The case was Buckley v. Valeo. In 1978, SCOTUS extended that logic to corporations in First National Bank of Boston v. Bellotti.

The result was predictable. Rich people and corporations rose up and took over the government, as money poured into Reagan’s coffers and the corporate-funded GOP began to dominate the American political scene.

How the Supreme Court and the morbidly rich are ruining RUINED WHAT LITTLE democracy WE HAD in America

Our task is to make America a TRUE Democratic Republic, once and for all (see brief rant below).

No taxation without representation!

📢 We need one Representative PER 60,000 population (WITHOUT gerrymandering of ANY sort!), in an Electronic Congress, meeting exclusively through secure Pentagon Level Conferencing from their home States (ZERO routine back and forth taxpayer funded travel!), NOT in Washington D.C. 😈💵🎩 corporate lobbyist land .

OR, we can continue our path to society destroying unrestrained misery and tyranny.
