Time’s Person of the Year is an abusive, entitled scumbag. Go figure he is a racist, too.

Have you noticed that despite all this ‘alleged’ “socialism and social welfare”, the billionaires and top 1% have never been wealthier? Do you not notice #Billionairesinspace ?

China wont destroy Taiwan per say.   They will blockade it and take it over destroying the democratic government.  China wants control over the entire area and all those in it.  Ideally they want control over the entire world, but so does the US.  The question becomes does the US and the world care about democracy as they use to say they did or not?   We can see with the situation in Ukraine which is a democracy being threatened by a dictatorship that presents itself as a pretend democracy that the world really is not as forceful on the subject as they once were.

Misleading right wing media cartoons / memes

What is really funny is the idea that tRump would know what was a server and what was a copier.    This goes back to the filing by Durham which was nothing new but is an attempt to investigate the investigators thing to find something to negate the findings in the Russia / tRump probe. 

This is pure bull.  The truckers were allowed to interrupt the economy and society for two weeks and some.  I am all for a protest, but not for shutting down peoples lives and stopping normal activities of a large portion of the city for weeks, disrupting the home life and families  of people not even involved.

The GOP’s Durham ‘bombshell’ is a bust

Even though Durham never directly said in his motion that Clinton coordinated a campaign to “spy” on Trump through Joffe, The New York Times noted, conservatives have been quick to draw such conclusions, accusing liberal media of being biased for not covering the alleged scandal.

Fox News on Tuesday also noted the amount of media coverage the alleged scandal had thus far received by ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, CNN, and MSNBC. According to Fox News Research, all of these channels have respectively dedicated “0 minutes.”

The researchers were not “spying” on the Trump campaign in 2016 but were instead working at the request of federal officials to investigate Russian malware attacks that had targeted the U.S. government and the White House, said Jody Westby, a lawyer for one of the research scientists involved, David Dagon of the Georgia Institute of Technology.

The U.S. was on high alert at the time after the hacking of Democratic National Committee emails by Russian operatives. The data at issue was from the time Obama, not Trump, was in the White House, according to Westby.

“They were simply doing … research of Russian attacks against U.S. entities, including the federal government,” Westby said, adding, “The motion is unfortunate because it offers a lot of confusing information that is not factually accurate.”

The statistics show that the returns on investments by people in congress is much higher than the general public’s returns. Now that implies that congress uses their knowledge and regulatory ability to create personal gain. It sure seems that for a lot of elected officials, they see the office as a golden lotto ticket to personal wealth. The days of public service and helping the people seems to be long gone. Their should be some sacrifice to serving the public, it should be for the country, not for enriching oneself or personal power.

So anyone who wins an elected office should have to place all stocks in blind trusts managed by a reputable company and no office holder may direct the purchase of sale of any individual stock. That goes for family members in the same household. I would also deal with the legalized bribe system called lobbying. The system has become a way for the well off to bribe the office holders and shut out the voices of the public.

The only complaint I have about the cartoon is it is bias and misleading. It makes it seem as if only one party is doing the stock trading. In fact both parties are and both parties have people ignoring the legalities of filing required forms about their finances and stocks. The majority of elected offices have been filled by wealthy people seeking to increase their own wealth at the expense of the people and the needs of the country.

A.F. Branco for Feb 17, 2022

Another cartoon with the smorgasbord of old failed hits. Just keep throwing everything at the wall hoping something will stick. The misleading right wing media is having to make things up now that the President is an adult who doesn’t have temper tantrums while openly breaking the laws and insulting everyone he can.

Tim Campbell Comic Strip for February 15, 2022

The idea that Biden is conducting his anti-war effort in the open is stupid.   He and his team have to work behind the scenes out of the view of cameras.   To expect some big displays is not reasonable.  But then the right never is.
