‘The sh*tshow begins’: Michael Moore previews the horror of the incoming GOP Congress

Published

on

Republicans in Congress have already created a major controversy for themselves with their vote to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics — and filmmaker Michael Moore warns us this will only be the start of things to come.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Moore writes that once the 115th Congress gets sworn in on Tuesday, “the sh*tshow begins” and the GOP will start “the attempted demolition of what we hold dear in our democracy.”

“It will happen so fast, your head may spin,” Moore writes. “They can’t get actual laws enacted until they have a President who can sign them. That’s 17 days away. But what they CAN do is shake up the Congressional committees and change the Congressional rules.”

According to Moore, this will entail things such as weakening independent ethics panels, as well as redirecting congressional spending to suit their own priorities.

Moore then goes on to note that we shouldn’t at all be surprised that Republicans moved so quickly to neuter the OCE, as they happily lined up behind Donald Trump as their presidential nominee.

“We’re in the P*ssy Grabbing Era, and so it makes sense that the first thing the Republicans would destroy would be the very body that is meant to guard us from… Republicans who are led by a Grabber-in-Chief,” writes Moore. “A man who doesn’t even acknowledge the very idea of ethics, or conflicts of interest, or foreign meddling in our elections, or the need for the public to see his basic tax returns.”

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

on

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
