Trump’s $28 Billion Bet That Rural America Will Stick With Him

Taking tariff money paid by American consumers and giving it to people who can't sell their goods because of tariffs sounds more than a little socialist, but hey, it's clearly the good kind of socialism else Trump wouldn't be doing it.

Rudy Giuliani’s viral CNN meltdown over Trump and Ukraine, explained - Vox

“Did you ask Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden”
Giuliani, “No actually I didn’t...”

30 seconds later...

“So you did ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden?”
Giuliani, “Of course I did...”

Pulling the good ol Trumpiani style doubling down on things Giuliani later tweeted that it’s of course the presidents job to pressure the president of a corrupt country to investigate corruption in his country. If I thought Giuliani was actually smart enough for this, it sounds like a long term setup for later saying something like, ‘Russia was just doing its job forcing the president to investigate crooked Hillary, there’s nothing wrong with that.’ But I don’t.

It’s starting to look like Trump threatened to withhold military support or money to Ukraine if they didn’t investigate Joe Biden’s son. Trump has responded with a variant of “Do you really think I’m dumb enough to say things like that on a call listened in by others” and many answered, Yes!

If this was a democrat the republicans would all shout GUTTING THE MILITARY in unison. The answer to every question from the press would be HE'S GUTTING THE MILITARY! What about healthcare? GUTTING THE MILITARY!

Democrats just stand around looking dumb and watching it happen. Why does my party never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity? Why do they confuse the issue on their own positions? They can't even get on the same page about what the state of the investigation is, let alone sling the mud we're ass deep in to any effect.

Democrats. Working for your future by milling about in a high state of confusion.

Good glob, you doofii. Get your shit in one bag for a change. THIS IS IMPORTANT!

It's not anacademic question. If you don;t correctly locate the source and locus of the abuse, then your anger can be deflected onto the victims of the abusers.

And you end up swelling the ranks of some smart-arsed, half-arsed, douchebag campaign not to vote for the useless Democrat candidate because "those incompetents need to be taught a lesson".

Ice T probably got this knowledge from noted legal scholar Stringer Bell.

One of the blogs I read has an observation referring to the behaviour of the media entitled Murc’s Law, after the commenter who coined it: “Only Democrats have agency.” That is, the media won’t behave as though the Republicans have any choice but to be the most shamelessly corrupt political party out there; as often as not, the Democrats are the ones blamed for the Republicans’ behaviour. It’s pretty much a form of gaslighting.

Once you hear this observation, you start seeing it everywhere. I’m not even going to attempt to summarise Ken Vogel’s utter shameless bullshit over the past few days, but it’s a very telling moment in Murc’s Law.

Indeed, conservatives seem to pull from the same playbook for everything, the abusive controlling playbook. “Why are you making me hit you” is the go too for controlling assholes as it not only justifies their abuse, it allows them to claim compassion while hurting someone. “I don’t want to be hitting you, but you make me do it!” The victim will then later be praised when they immediately take responsibility for a situation to diffuse the bomb, being called responsible or well mannered.

Similarly the media pushes the narrative of the responsible, mannered democrat as the one who should be willing to bend, while republicans are called ‘strong willed’ and their insane reactions to the tiniest things just what they do.

But frankly I’m pretty sure every woman who’s had to flee a controlling abusive relationship watched something like the Kavanaugh hearings and upped their assumption he would one day die in a murder suicide with his wife or mistress.

—-
With the dems I think it’s a bit of both. The media portrays them poorly and many of the rich dems still want to stay rich and in the good life, like conservatives-lite, they are totally for the corpocracy but not the complete fleecing of the country. So they are very slow to do anything that will disrupt too much.

It’s a bit like republicans and illegal immigration, it’s a great rallying call but few really want to stop the cheap labor they abuse, so there’s a lot of dragging their feet or dumping money into useless projects.
