Press confidence, Russia

 
A few days after Comey's testimony Orange Buffoon held a press conference, and it one of the most ridiculous things that I have ever seen. When Buffoon was answering questions he was moving his arms from side to side. I expect that is a sign he's lying. He said things like "No I did not do that, but even if I did there would be nothing wrong with that" O...K..., has anybody sounded more guilty in their life? From an analytical perspective he distance himself from Comey, "No I didn't ask for loyalty, I barely know Comey". Liars frequently distance themselves from the people involved. "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" they teach this stuff in talks and lectures. So, absurd press conference, Made Buffoon look worse.

The Russia investigation has extended to the Buffoon son-in-law and Buffoon itself. A special prosecutor has been assigned to the case. It's probably only a matter of time before another revelation is uncovered. Surely there's a reason why Buffoon's staff keep dropping off due to connections to Russia dating back to the campaign manager who changed the GOP'S platform to ease Crimea related sanctions. There's also reports that Buffoon wanted to do things that benefit Russia but wasn't able to do them. I guess this is like how Obama wanted to be more hawkish but ran into obstacles. People, including some progressives that say \'there's nothing there" are in denial. I have additionally come to the conclusion that the hookers pissing tape could be a real thing. Yes it's ridiculous but everything about this administration is ridiculous. Of course other things should be talked about; I am only covering the press conference because it was funny.

The republicans have basically taken an axe to Dodd Frank. I have mixed thoughts, the legislation was basically piss weak so in essence they weakened already piss weak. Another crash was always coming, it will come slightly sooner. Buffoon's approval rating is already lower than the percentage of people that want him impeached. A crash could lower this considerably from the current 35-40% approval rating, which is already record breaking disapproval since data on this began.

Corbyn, UK Internet, Buffoon

 
So the UK had its election. The left is bizarrely celebrating. Jeremy Corbyn lost. This is nothing to celebrate. I know he turned a 30 point deficit in the polls into less than 10 and took seats away from the Conservative Party and blah blah blah. He lost. He doesn't get a participation trophy from me. He deserves credit; it was the first time Labour received an increase since 1997. The Conservative Party now can't govern on its own and may do a deal with a fundamentalist religious party. There is nothing here to celebrate. Maybe he will be victorious next but I predict he will be removed as Labour leader and a neoliberal put in, hopefully I am wrong. Some of Clinton's people "helped" the Conservative campaign, you could say they helped it lose seats hahaha. Neither campaign did particularly well. This is a bad result for the left, but could end up winning us the long game if people dislike the new governing arrangement and Corbyn stays, I have doubts the latter will happen. Jeremy Corbyn lost, this is not time to be patting him on the back for giving a good try. Stop being ridiculous!

The current Conservative PM now wants to regulate the internet to help stop ISIS. I surprisingly will agree with this approach in theory, but in practice just assume that it will be implemented with the intention of taking people's rights and privacy away. I think ISIS should be shut down through very agressive means. Terrorists shouldn't be allowed to communicate via the internet, that's the most ridiculous thing ever! Shut the fuckers down. Sites and social media, gone. The status quo doesn't do this but instead collects everyone's data which does fuck all to solve the problem. I expect more status quo from the Conservatives instead of solutions that actually work.

Buffoon Of Our Lives update. James Comey testified after being fired, called Orange Buffoon a liar, boring. You'd have to be braindead not to know that. Perhaps the interesting thing is the reason why Russia interfered. Apparently they hate democracy and view it as a threat to their rule. So they try to undermine it. On reflection countries hating democracy sounds awfully like the terrorist explanation. So I guess make up your own mind whether you believe that. Surely it's not just some random coincidence that a Buffoon daughter and Putin's girlfriend hang out, not to mention Buffoon's zillion business ties to the russian oligarchs. Putin interfered because he hates democracy? Sorry, I'm going full skeptic on this. If we're being generous there could be a number of reasons he interfered. Why not interfere with someone you have ties to? Two birds, one stone I guess.

Manchester, Saudi Arabia

 
I am acknowledging the terror attack in Manchester but ultimately I really don't feel like I have too much to say on this. This randomly happens, they kill a lot of people in one place but ultimately your chances of dying at a concert is much lower than in a car crash. This will be my point. We must not let the terrorists win. They want to install fear upon us. We must continue to live. They must not be allowed to stop people having fun. Sometimes terrible things happen, 99.999% of the time they don't. We absolutely have to dismantle toxic ideologies, but should not stop our lives in the process. We need to continue going to concerts, marathons, nightclubs. We also need to be wary of any \'solutions" that governments impose. The terrorists love taking away freedoms, we shouldn't let the government do that for them. We should judge solutions on their merrits.

When talking about terrorism it is important to understand the root causes. I have said before the the US keeps giving arms and power to terrorists. Today is no different. The US signed a 110 BILLION DOLLAR deal with Saudi Arabia. This country is involved in the civil war in Yemon and has a similar ideology to ISIS. 15/19 of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis. Their government is a fundamentalist kingdom propped up by the west. It's a really bad idea to further weaponize them. There's Muslim theocracies that are more moderate, then there's Saudi Arabia that does everything to spread its toxic version of Islam around the world. Do you know how to win the war on terror? STOP ARMING THE TERRORISTS!

Ransomware, Ailes, Buffoon

 
There was a ransomware tech story recently. I generally think that tech VIRUS AHHHHHH stories are overhyped, this was no exception. 300,000 computers were infected but there are probably hundreds of millions of computers in existence, this would seem a tiny fraction. However from my understanding the ransomware was targeted, some predict that another attack will come later. In my opinion the most interesting aspect of this story was the fact the NSA knew of the hole but told Microsoft not to close it. Genius! I hope the lesson learned is not to follow such instructions in future. If the government can violate your technology, so can other people!

Roger Alies died. Many people believe that it is not right to criticize the dead, if you followed this blog for a while you know I am not one of those people. He was a horrible person, but ultimately was an evil genius. Before Fox News he advised Nixon, Regan and Bush senior. His channel also was the first to push the incorrect notion that Bush junior won Florida which shaped the conversation. Other channels to some degree follow Fox News; he knew that. He also knew by serving his base red meat he could also feed them propaganda. He shaped conservatism for a generation or more. He catered largely to bigots and idiots and used them for his own purposes, played them like a violin to vote against their own interest. He was successful at avoiding criticisms from other mainstream media, possibly due to the blackmail files he kept on his competitors, also if you criticize outlets they generally won't hire you should you need a job later. I already covered his abuse; the only thing I will add is I'm constantly baffled on why the rich don't just find willing participants to have sex with them; buy them a car or house. I know that it is a power thing, but to me it seems unnecessary. Roger was a true inspiration, to psychopaths and creepers.

In the latest episode of Buffoons Of Our Lives it turns out that Orange Buffoon asked Comey to drop the case against Mike Flynn who according to sources didn't even want to be National Security Adviser because of his ties to foreign governments. until Orange Buffoon insisted. Asking Comey to drop investigations is obstruction of justice. Now a Special Prosecutor has been assigned to the case. It's not looking good for Orange Buffoon. Before celebrating President Pence would be more competent at getting horrible shit done and would they let Russia off the hook? Things could get very ugly. It may be a case of better the devil you know.

Comey, Royals

 
James Comey was fired. People are speculating it was because of the Russia investigation but some say that Orange Baffon just wanted a lacky. Comey has made a name for himself by standing up to administrations. This has made him enemies on the left and the right. Buffon thought that the Democrates would be pleased pleased with the firing of Comey but as the saying goes; the enemy of my enemy is my friend. He was also well liked in one place: the FBI! Fire their leader and many will turn on the person who fired him.

In irrelevant monarchy news Philip is retiring from royal duties (smiling and waving must take its toll) and Diana's ex is in the hospital. The first broke my Facebook feed. I wasn't sure why friends were posting about a fucking meeting at a palace. Old guy retires. Boring! Abolishing the monarchy would be worth it to get less news about irrelevant crap. They are even reporting on people not even related by blood to the family. Fuck the media for covering this garbage. FUCK THEM WITH A GIANT AXE

Health-care, Obama, France

 
Republicans passed a replacement to the Affordable Care Act. In short it gives away 600 billion in tax cuts to the rich, includes an option for the states to do away with pre existing conditions, funds high risk pools by 8 billion but 200 billion, raises the uninsured rate from 10% to 19%. Fuck the Republicans. Democrates are singing this will be the end for them in the 2018 midterms. Well fuck the democrates too. Nobody should sing when people lose health-care. The Affordable Care Act is a largely shitty piece of legislation; it isn't a single payer system like every other developed country on earth and health-care costs are much higher. If the Democrates had the guts to fix these problems when they had a filibuster proof majority they would probably be popular enough that Orange Buffoon would never have become president. Instead they had to appease the Big Tent Fuckwit Brigade AKA the "moderate democrates" This means any reforms has to be piss weak. The lesson here is NEVER let your ideological opposition into your own party! They take over and even when you're in power you're practically useless!

Obama did a speech on Wall Street for 400 million dollars. For people who don't think it's a big deal ask yourself if he would still be doing it if he prosecuted the bankers for fraud or significantly tightened regulations by bringing back Glass Steagell? If you think yes, it's possible you're a stupid person. He was soft on the banks and now he's getting paid, much like the Clintons who took away Glass Steagell. When the next crash comes it is important not to just blame Orange Buffoon, some of the blame will be on the New Democrates.

France is about to get more right wing, the question is how much. Similarly to the US the possibilities are now between a neoliberal character and a fascist one. There was more candidates for the dominate party but they got eliminated, sounds like a reality TV show. Many people believe that the Orange Buffoon type character won't win, but then again "many many" people thought that about the man itself. France has been previously more socialist so it's possible the "fuck it" voter won't have so much of an effect. Let's hope they don't go all the way to the insane right. UPDaTE: the insane right was not chosen.

Tax Plan, Bill O'Reilly

 
Buffoon released his tax plan, it's a huge give away to the rich. Duh! Gets rid of the estate tax, as an old rich guy his family would benefit tremendously. Reduces tax on investments such as stocks. So far this affects the middle class fuck all. Also gets rid of the Alternative Minimum Tax which forces people like Orange Buffoon to pay 25% tax instead of 5% with various accounting tricks. They basically doubled the itemized deduction threshold but from my understanding this affects very limited poor people. It additionally allows for pass through corporations so that (again rich) people can be taxed at a lower rate for corporations instead of 39%. This is nothing but a windfall for the rich. It will fuck the budget so they're forced to cut programs, mainly for low to medium income earners which by the way would off set some of the few benefits those people get. Giving more money to already rich people does nothing to stimulate the economy, that is just a convenient myth and puts the con in conservative! The only way an economy can grow is by ensuring that people who are more likely to spend money can actually do that. The people who proportionately spend more of their income are the poor and the middle class. Austerity and trickle down economics ensures the reverse of this and are miserable failures as economic policy.

Bill O'Reilly has gone from Fox News following a string of sexual assault allegations. This is the same thing that got Roger Alies, although with Bill O'Reilly it was also because the advertisers were fleeing from his show. Despite the behaviour (and I say that because some cases were settled) his ratings didn't suffer but turns out all the ratings in the world mean nothing if you can't be monetized. Bill O'Reilly, you won't be missed for long, mainly because the bigoted 72 year olds that watch you will not be among the living for much longer.

War Hawk Media, North Korea

 
Orange Buffoon launched the biggest bomb possible without going nuclear. Firstly for people who claim focusing on American politics is pointless, well it actually affects other parts of the world too, so please, shut the fuck up. Now this is stupidity from all around here. As stated last time what really grows terrorism is killing random civilians. Logically using bigger bombs would kill more civilians, fuck more people off because you kill their family members which many had nothing to do with terrorism, so those left behind turn to terrorism, and on and on it goes. Of course Orange Buffoon is stupid, that's not really an riveting point. What is more interesting is the media and the relationship to a media obsessed President. Media largely praised Orange Buffoon for the strike last week. I would say Buffoon is watching closely so if they praised him he would be more likely to authorised more military action, and now we get to this week. This is a cycle that should be discussed. Of course it is just a theory, but the media should be cautious about praising a vein buffoon at times when he launch strikes.

Also North Korea and America are threatening each other. Both have narcissistic maniacs as leaders. I don't think North Korea will do anything, but who knows? A bomb by North Korea would trigger a war for sure, and they'll surely lose considering starved people are unable to fight and may not be willing. Kim Jong-un might be a maniac but I don't think he's also brain dead stupid as well like Orange Buffoon. Maybe I am wrong. It is convenient for the Buffoon Administration to keep hyping up threats so the media talks about that instead of his "many many" flaws. Let's hope this does not end badly.

Syria, Neil Gorsuch

 
Buffoon launched missiles on a Syrian air base after a chemical weapons attack . This may not be as bad as I thought. Turns out the Russians were warned about the attack prior and they warned the Syrians. The result was limited damaged. I only say this is good because if Russia gets fucked off somehow because they're closely allied with Syria it could lead to World War 3. Best case this is theater to show how tough Buffoon is. You could claim Buffoon warned Russia out of curiosity and if this is the case at least Syria knows there will be consequences for chemical weapons attacks. Of course I prefer they didn't bomb and do sanctions but if this doesn't go further, avoiding crisis with Russia is a good thing. I am definitely not a fan of the Russian government, I can't stand them and have repeatedly blasted the bastards. However the world doesn't need a war with them. We don't need Iraq 2.0 with Syria. ISIS is stronger because of the Iraq invasion, hell they didn't even exist until much after the Invasion. Side note the group that became Al Qaeda was given arms and money to fight the "godless communists" in Russia. This wasn't done on purpose, but they don't know what the fuck they're doing! They are known to arm groups that later turn against them. Today great ally Saudi Arabia is arming Al Qaeda. The US has been known to arm groups that FIGHT EACH OTHER! The West should leave the Middle East the fuck alone. By the way drones kill 90% innocent civilians and Buffoon has increased them by 400%. If America wants to send missiles to those who kill innocent civilians; it should start with the Pentagon!

Neil Gorsuch has been confirmed as the new Supreme Court Justice which basically replaces one right wing zealot with another. The real story here is Democrates are useless fuckwits. The Republicans had no problem taking away the filibuster, why didn't the Democrates? Because they're useless fuckwits. In their mild defense the Republicans didn't hold hearings. This should have been Obama's seat to fill; instead they got a social conservative fundamentalist. Nice one!

Health-care, Buffoon Relatives, Internet Privacy, YouTube

 
If Corporate Clinton won I predicted that the Republicans would stonewall and she wouldn't get anything done; this happened under Obama, and surprisingly is still happening under Trump. The Health-care act is now gone for now There are fractions of the Republican Party; namely the Koch Brothers Tea Party republicans who don't want compromise at all, and the more mainstream republicans that understand taking away health-care will be unpopular. There is a possibility this will happen on many major issues. I am not convinced that this will happen on taxes, but who knows.

Buffoon has officially given his daughter a job at the Oval Office, except she's not being paid as a way to go around rules and doesn't have to follow ethics rules. She says that she will voluntarily follow them, believe that at your own risk. Republicans would go ape shit if Chelsea Clinton did the same in the Clinton Administration. The son-in-law also has a paying job at the White House. On the bright side I believe that the two are less social conservative than standard republicans.

The republicans fucked over internet privacy by allowing ISPs to sell Americans' browsing history. Theoretically any company could purchase anyone's web browsing data. Of course the standard fear is porn sites, but hang on what if you frequent affair sites too? Now a corporation can know that. What if a person that knows you personally can get that information. It's not only the NSA that you should be worried about, but random corporations. This was always the case, but this makes it even more so. Some insecure websites also would put sensitive information like social security numbers in URLs and countless other things. This isn't acceptable. People have a right to privacy from the government and corporations. If people's browsing histories can be purchased I would like to see Buffoon's history and anti gay republicans. If the US government doesn't believe in privacy anymore let's see how much gay porn anti gay republicans are watching.

YouTube is further cracking down on controversial creators. In the latest attempt it is widened the net on what cannot be monetized and it is developing AI to detect swearing in videos. Last year they added terrorism as a banned subject. Apparently they will soon add religion which penalizes pro religion channels as well as channels who criticize religion. Of course ads are not the be all end all of revenue; there's donations; patron, and merchandise. However YouTube has been fucking the creators for years and there's probably a tipping point. Other platfors can emerge and probably will. MySpace was once very popular, also Yahoo! Now fuck all people go to those sites, particularly MySpace. YouTube should tread carefully.
