Simon and Jackie Go Crazy   

Cache   

So, I visited Montreal Simon to read his latest post, which was a condemnation of the Scheer Conservatives and their fans who are bringing USA-Repugnican style hatred and violent rhetoric up here. It started off well with a picture of some sub-literate right-wing moron holding up this ridiculous (and frightening) hand-made sign:


I've said on numerous occasions that stupid people must have the same right to vote as non-stupid people. But there needs to be gatekeepers to prevent the rise of stupid ideas and rage-fueled political movements from having any prominence greater than the level of three city blocks. Alas, for reasons of selfish cynicism our media and corporate elites see fit to pander to these cretins and stir them up. As well (whose kidding who?) from their own behaviour and the words that flow from their mouths, pens, pencils, keyboards, many among our elites aren't all that intelligent either.

Montreal Simon goes from trashing right-wing assholes calling for Trudeau to be "hung" (or run over by a truck) for taxing them, for verbally acknowledging global warming, for admitting Syrian refugees, for marching in PRIDE parades, and etc., ... where was I? .... Oh yeah, ... Simon goes from condemning those assholes to conflating them with progressives who yell at him for buying the TMX pipeline (so as to bail-out the Bay Street parasites who invested in that bitumen project) and praises Trudeau for asking his supporters (booing the guy) for tolerance as he lets his security drag the man away.

Immediately afterwards Simon mentions a guy who threw an egg at Trudeau during a climate march in Montreal, but it's unclear from the Global News video what that guy's agenda was. Personally, I've never gotten too incensed about ordinary people throwing pies (or, now, eggs) in the faces of politicians.

"What if that pie/egg had been a gun or a bomb or a knife?!?"

Yeah. But you're missing the important point that it wasn't a gun or a bomb or a knife. It was a cream-pie/egg. You could just as well shriek that the hand of someone extended for a handshake could have been a gun. But it wasn't. The person sticking their hand out to a passing politician just wants a handshake. Just as the person with the pie wants to make a statement and not kill anybody.


Simon then starts his spiel about how Justin Trudeau is the most activist politician fighting climate change EVAH!!!! because of his carbon tax and his investments in renewable energy industries. But, if Simon were honest (or not honestly ignorant) he would know that this is mere tinkering and that it is all cancelled-out by his continuing to develop the Tar Sands. Which is par for the course for a liberal politician. They're the masters n' mistresses of using empty words to gull their deluded followers. They "feel your pain." They "want to see all people rise to their full potential." They "don't want to see anyone left behind." They say the things we want to hear in order to get elected and continue to say those things as they enact policies that contradict their flowery words.

The end result of political cowardice and deliberate deceit by politicians like Justin Trudeau is going to be the extinction of most of the earth's life-forms. It will AT LEAST mean the deaths of tens of millions of people. Given this, it was justified for that protester to yell at Trudeau for his sickening devotion to the TMX pipeline. And it is the height of stupidity to conflate environmentalists with legitimate grievances with Islamophobic, racist, right-wing homophobic shit-heads threatening all their adversaries with murder. (Notice how that protester at the Liberal rally stayed right where he was and didn't make a step towards Trudeau.)

And, of course, the first "commentor" was Simon's in-all-but-name co-blogger "Jackie Blue." I haven't (and won't) read her entire densely-packed, extended comment. But she basically says that leftist "shit-disturbers" are as big a threat (to "rational centrists") as right-wingers. Now, given the evidence from Simon's own post, anyone not an idiot can see that isn't true. She then goes on to whine about the progressives who didn't vote for mass-murderess, corrupt scumbag Hillary Clinton. Because "Jackie Blue" continues with the bullshit story that she's a US-American and she continues with the bullshit belief that Hillary Clinton wasn't a murdering scumbag.

Hillary Clinton voted for the Iraq War you stupid fuck! She voted for a war based on obvious stupid lies. The war she voted for has KILLED ONE MILLION IRAQIS and maimed and traumatized millions more. And that's only one of her colossal "mistakes" that she made while servicing the oligarchy and becoming a multi-millionaire herself. And it was Hillary's own sense of entitlement that led her to rig the Democratic primary to defeat Bernie Sanders and thereby bring on the presidency of Donald Trump. Hillary gave us Trump you imbecile!

As a species, we have to do the hard work of overthrowing his rotten, inhuman, ecocidal system. And the longer that (mostly decent-minded) people like Montreal Simon pledge hysterical allegiance to hucksters like Liberals, the longer (and perhaps TOO LATE) will it take to start that job in earnest.


(I'll end by saying that I probably won't be voting. My riding is a contest between the Libs and the Cons. And, from reading this article, I'm pretty much deflated about my choices anyway.)

          

Jane Mayer is a hack

Isaiah's THE WORLD TODAY JUST NUTS "First Family Material?"

first family material


Once upon a time, Jane Mayer was a respected journalist.  With Jill Abramson, she'd reported the truth about Clarence Thomas.  Then, during the Bully Boy Bush era, she reported on torture. 

Since?

That's when she becomes a hack.

Her most significant 'contribution' during Barack Obama's two terms as president?  A NEW YORKER piece trashing Christians. 

Wow, Jane, what a wonder you are.

More recently?  She ripped apart women who accused Al Franken of inappropriate behaivor.

That's right, she's become the female David Brock.

Her latest garbage?

An article insisting Joe Biden is innocent and anyone who says otherwise is a conspiracy theorist.

She's such f**king liar.  Jill's already destroyed her reputation (stealing other people's paragraphs and calling it your own writing will harm your reputation).  Now we've got Jane.

What most of us are accusing Joe Biden of is allowing his brother James and his son Hunter to grift on his name.

Guess what?  No matter how Jane dismisses it, that's serious and it happened.

That's corruption.  While he was Vice President, his family sold access to him to make a profit.

That's corruption.

Jane Mayer is a hack.  No one should confuse her with a reporter.  Somewhere around 2006, she stopped reporting.  She's an embarrassment.


"Iraq snapshot" (THE COMMON ILLS):

Monday, October 7, 2019.  It's a snapshot that mentions Carly Simon, Aretha Franklin, Gore Vidal, Iraqi protesters, Hunter Biden and the supreme idiot Alyssa Milano.


Let's start with the race in the US for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.  And let's start with one of the country's biggest losers, Alyssa Milano.

She was a child actress, she was not a child star.  No studio came rushing to her saying, "Let's build a film around you!!!"  Not even a movie about a child who ends up in an adult body.  Drew Barrymore was a child star.  Movies were built around her.  As a young adult, both Drew and Alyssa starred in films about Amy Fisher.  Drew did a wonderful job portraying Amy and Alyssa played Alyssa before the cameras but they called her "Amy Fisher."

As an adult, Alyssa got by on her boobs.  That's all she had to offer.  She never took to the time to study acting and she still gives the sort of 'performance' you'd expect from a child actress.  She can recite lines very well, she just can't create a character.

She's latched on to #MeToo -- though she didn't create it.  Rose McGowen has rightly called her out as fake ass.  We have called her that too.  Yes, Ileana Douglas is a friend of mine and, yes, Martin Scorsese had told me years ago about what Leslie Moonves did to Ileana.  So, yes, I had a reason to defend her (and I noted all of that when I noted it here).  What's Alyssa's reason for not standing with Ileana?  Oh, that's right, she wanted Leslie to greenlight a TV show for her.

The whore stayed silent -- while preening and posing as brave and pretending to lead on MeToo -- because she wanted a TV show.

So the whore needs to shut up.  She won't though.

She has no career and that's all the more pathetic when you grasp that she's married to a William Morris agent who uses the agency to get her jobs.  So these pathetic jobs she's had in the last few years?  From using the agency.  Clients who aren't working and aren't married to a William Morris agent should register that she's getting jobs while they aren't.

She can't act.  She thinks doing what she did as a child qualifies as acting.  She's a stupid hick who's gotten by on her breasts back when she was young and now depends on hubby to get her jobs.

She can't act.

She's tried to play 'activist.'

One of those attempts include her pushing "PatriotNotPartisan" and she hectors Republicans whom she finds lacking.

But if she truly believed in patriotism over party, she wouldn't reTweet crap like this.

Wally and Cedric called it out last night:







  • They note how you don't reTweet Neera if you're a feminist.  They note Neera is a two-bit bitch who outed a woman who was being sexually harassed at work (Neera was the one who should have stopped the harassment, not covered it up, not outed the female who came forward), they noted that Neera, as revealed in her own e-mails, knew that Hillary shouldn't have used a private e-mail and what a scandal that was, they noted Neera herself has assaulted an employee and so much more.

    A polite society doesn't reTweet Neera.  And no feminist should ever do it.

    But here's the point I'm making, Alyssa, don't say you put country above party when you reTweet that crap.

    Hunter Biden is the portrait of corruption.  That doesn't mean Trumps can't be as well.  But on the left, we police our own or we are nothing but partisans.

    I know this is hard for you because you're not just a hack, you're also an uneducated hick.  You never went to a real school, you never went to college, you're just a really dumb person who spits out what people tell you.  You lack the energy to educate yourself, you lack the skill to analyze.  It's why you're so tired and pointless as an actress.  It's why your idea of being 'political' is a bigger joke than you are.

    Take your botched plastic surgery and your Democratic Party talking points that you try to pass off as insight and just sit down.  Don't stand up again until your lazy ass has gone to college.  And forget anyone voting you into public office.  You're an uneducated idiot.  No one in California will want you to represent them and I will back your opponent in the primary and get everyone I know to back them as well.

    You are a menace to the public square.  You try to use your fleeting fame to promote the ideas of party hacks, you offer nothing original, you only repeat and steal.

    I don't have time for you and, frankly, the country doesn't either.

    Let me note thanks to ____ for typing this dictation.

    I am literally spitting blood.  I had a tooth crack last night and had to have surgery and, apparently due to the diabetes, the bleeding hasn't stopped yet.

    But I am taking the time to call out Alyssa because she is a danger to the public square.  She has an audience of desperate shut-ins. 

    Alyssa's nonsense gives the appearance of celebrity but she's a faded actress who couldn't make it in the real world of adult acting.  She was miserable on MELROSE PLACE because the stars of that show didn't like her (nor did the fans).  She went to CHARMED and promptly began causing problems.  She was a producer for the last half of the show's run -- a producer of a show set in San Francisco.  So why didn't 'woke' Alyssa ever insist upon a gay or lesbian character?  There were none -- apparently Phoebe lived in a special part of San Francisco inhabited by straights only.  In addition, all the African-American characters (really just two) were created before Alyssa was a producer.  "Woke," my ass.  When people note her cultural appropriation these days or her racist portrayals of Native Americans, they should grasp her history.   CHARMED ended 13 years ago.  Her 'acting' since?  Everyone hated her on the set of MY NAME IS EARL.  Her sitcom ROMANTICALLY CHALLENGED resulted in the suit that championed the show getting fired and was so bad that ABC only aired four of the six filmed episodes and issued an edict that Alyssa wasn't to be cast in any ABC sitcoms.  On MISTRESSES, she tried to pull the crap she pulled on CHARMED and get people fired but ABC backed KJ Steinberg and Tina Mimoun and told Alyssa she could leave.  (Which Alyssa then pretended was her decision and was a result of the series moving to Canada.  Did no one notice that "I can't leave my children" Alyssa now films in Georgia?)  She was a witch on that set and all the actresses were thrilled when Alyssa was let go.  Her current show?  The actual stars of INSATIABLE are pretty damn tired of Alyssa billing herself as a star of the show.  Not only is it a show about a teenage girl, but adult Alyssa isn't even in every episode.  She is not a star of the show.

    Alyssa and her shut-ins need to grasp that Alyssa's career ended some time ago and that's there's something deeply disturbing about a 46-year-old woman who delivers the same performance -- over and over -- that she did as a child.

    Joe Biden?




    From yesterday, that's Isaiah's THE WORLD TODAY JUST NUTS "First Family Material?" about Hunter Biden.

    As Kate Aronoff has noted, "We need to talk about Hunter Biden."  From her column at THE GUARDIAN:


    The standard lines from Democrats about Hunter Biden and his business dealings in China and Ukraine have been consistent: Donald Trump has abused the office of the president by asking foreign leaders to investigate Biden’s son, and there is absolutely no proof that either Joe or Hunter Biden have done anything to break the law. Any questionable dealings by Biden’s son also pale in comparison to ethical breaches on the part of Ivanka, Eric or Donald Trump Jr, who have routinely blurred the lines between the extended Trump Organization – the family’s business empire –and their presence in the White House.
    This is all true, and arguably these are the right lines vis-a-vis the long overdue impeachment proceedings. What’s harder to shake is the fact that Hunter Biden’s career is undeniably shady in the way that only the son of a longtime Washington insider could muster, failing upwards into positions of influence and power on the merits of his last name. And that should be considered a huge liability to Joe Biden, for months now considered heir apparent for the Democratic party’s presidential nomination.

    It's interesting when educated women speak and write -- Sarah Chayes, Kate Aronoff.  They're not screaming, "Say Trump! Say Trump!" No, educated women -- pay attention, Alyssa -- realize this is a real issue and that is needs to be discussed.

    If you believe that Donald Trump and his family have done corrupt things since he became president, great, call him out on it.  But grasp, it's going to be hard to call him out in a general debate -- to call him out on corruption -- if Joe Biden is the nominee.  That's why you need a strong nominee -- and, yes, strength does include (and always has) integrity.

    Sing it, Aretha.





    Behold the $50k/month international business genius: “Hunter...asked a homeless man in Pershing Square where he could buy crack. Hunter said that the man took him to a nearby homeless encampment...He returned to buy more crack a few times that week.”







    Integrity.  Not to be found in Hunter Biden.

    Replying to 
    Hunter Biden at least served in the military the great kids of Don have no experience, don’t know how the government operates and no degree related to government or defense. Throwing stones at glass houses can be quite dangerous.




    Poor, dumb Debbie.

    Beau Biden served in the military.  Hunter?  He was in the Reserves, yes, but they kicked him out for cocaine use.

    So that's really not a plus or something to brag about on the resume.
