Cheap Parler Tricks Courtesy Of Deplorabus Unum

Conservative Americans feel slighted and forever persecuted and with good reason, they are. Most Americans are over their whole if-you-don’t-like-the-results-flip-over-the-graph line of reasoning. They’re not going to stop peddling their conspiracy theories anytime soon or, more accurately, ever. The right has a threefold approach to making their Fantasy Island become a new reality for us all. First, abandon existing journalism outright. If anyone was still wondering, this phase is complete. Second, find a social media platform that’s, how should I say it? …think post-lobotomy Walter Mitty. Then, for the pizza-gate de resistance, you just have to create a news network that will make Fox seem, well, fair and balanced. As for this dark web I’m forced to live vicariously through my blogvesary, who’s up to his old Parler tricks.

Macy’s Day Parade Captures Essence Of 2020

New York, NY—Al Roker and company covered the 94th annual Macy’s Day Parade to mixed reviews. A trailer filled with children in cages was the first controversial float to roll down 34th street to the backdrop of the boarded-up Macy’s storefront. They were followed by the Rockettes packing the new RPG-7s that Trump is selling the Saudis to help with his Wag The War on Christmas. And, even though 34th Street is fairly level, things went straight downhill from there.

Embrace Acceptance By The Pussy

Since moving to the southwest I’ve been to Vegas dozens of time but, today, amidst a pandemic, this place has an edge to it. Vegas always had an edge to it, but this is different. Less costumes downtown, more panhandlers, zero Elvis impersonators. What am I doing here, you might ask? Don’t. But then I thought, where better to watch the fall of Rome than from the shadow of Caesar’s Palace? As for blogging, I’m not sure what to say anymore. I told you so comes to mind. With or without Trump, our real issues are only beginning. But my friend and blogvesary made an observation about himself that struck me: I take in information and look at everything and can thus change my views based on new emerging evidence. Of course, by new emerging evidence, he means QAnon and Kremlin dispatches, but I responded with: well, when you’re batting a thousand why change your stance, or grip, or some such. Damn, no Elvis impersonators? I guess Elvis has truly, well …you know.

Let’s Let Trump Self-Pardon If He Agrees To Leave Office Now

Hey, kids, that dystopia I ordered twenty years ago finally arrived! Now if I could only get that decoder ring. Whereas Trump’s pending departure is welcome, it won’t be in time to save us. Trump broke a lot of shit and I’m guessing he’ll break more on the way out. Lest we forget we are still amidst a populist uprising, not just here but everywhere—a movement driven by a profound collective delusion that their twisted worldview makes sense. And, sure, Joe’s Lincoln tour will work with the Project itself, but not the common citizenry. With the Lincoln Project is there a chance to restore the republican intelligentsia, Zano? No, I thought I just said that. Keep up. The problem is 9 out of 10 republicans aren’t even aware they have a problem. They seem to have cheerfully elected two of the most incompetent boobs we’ve ever seen, consecutively, and they are more motivated than ever to reelect even less savvy and stable leaders. The right swept the courts, their turnout was strong, and they’ve likely held the Senate. Seventy million people voted for this idiot. Any candidate who can walk and chew gum will be poised to beat the incumbent in 2024 and shift the country once again toward a dysfunctional autocracy. They are resolute in their ignorance. A Biden loss is already baked into the cake as, much like Clinton and Obama, they’ve left us a MAGA-mess. As for unity, Joe will be banging his head against the wall for a while until he figures out his naivety. Hey, but if we all bang our heads long and hard enough we can level the playing field a bit. McConnell and Company are not going to budge from Mount Doom. It’s like the Buddha fixed at the base of that bodhi tree, only in our case it’s a turtle-man, Sith lord squatting under a Whomping Willow.

During Victory Speech Hillary Tears Off Biden Mask Before Mounting Broomstick

Washington—At the onset of Joe Biden’s victory speech, to the horror of onlookers, the president-elect suddenly tore his own face off revealing the visage of Hillary Clinton! The former Secretary of State cackled wildly before shouting, “I’ll get you, my deplorables, and your little Barr too!” She then vaulted a broomstick in a snazzy blue pantsuit and flew off into the night, presumably toward 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Sure Trump Is An Impeached Felon, But Can We Add Traitor To His Resume?

My friend is still a little out of the loophole with regard to Trump’s ongoing crime spree, therefore, I must, as duty dictates, return to the trenches in an attempt to enlighten the floundering republican brain. And for this noble act you may call me a Bloghisattva. What? …too much? Here’s the thing, over on FB my friend asked me to name one thing that Trump did that can be considered a crime, which is tougher than it looks …to narrow down. He then pointed to the clear D crimes over the years, a list that included Bill Clinton’s speech wherein he charged Moscow his usually speaking engagement fees, Hillary’s missing emails, and Hunter Biden’s dubious paychecks from Keiv. I suppose in opposite world these are the worst things to have happened since Benghazi. While my friend is napping, what the rest of us have learned is twofold: first off, those of a certain tax bracket seem above the law entirely, especially with regard to the tax code. Second, there’s also a significant executive cushion that is further protecting our commander and chief from legal consequences. By using these two additional safety nets a con-man has exposed our country for the banana republic that it has become. So let’s just list the clear crimes, mainly because I have to make an appearance at work sometime next week.

Please Add Burisma, Spygate & Unmasking To The List Of ‘Dumb Shit Republicans Say’

My friend and blogvesary responded to my last post and for that I’m grateful, mostly. But it doesn’t change the fact he’s still knee-deep in Foxal matter, oblivious to what’s coming in November. “You’re not making any sense, Zano!” I’m afraid nothing this far down the rabid hole is going to make sense to you, my friend. I do still enjoy our exchanges, but only for the same reason I keep eating ice cream despite a lactose intolerance [‘Fifty shades of sorbet’ joke removed by Tom Carvel]. Even after decades of debate, my friend still can’t acknowledge that each and every one of his ‘scandals’ had its day in court and ended with some republican judge, senator, or special prosecutor finding no crimes. You may not be aware of these conclusions, because Fox News will repeat this crap for years on end before making a smooth transition to the scroller—the moving ticker just underneath the blonde newscaster—for those inconvenient court findings. No retraction, apology, or further explanation necessary. I’d like to shove all of Fox New’s supposed journalists face-first off Trump’s ego. Anchors Away? I think for Pokey’s crusades we stand at zero indictments and counting. This is a QA-non-starter for me, and yet my friend still demands payment in full. Seek and thou shalt still fine?

Unmasking Those Burisma Bullshit Blues

Hey, gang, it’s not just Spygate that’s taking an invesitigatorial shit today, both Burisma and unmasking are also Benghaziing, as it were. Barr found no wrongdoing by Obama officials on unmasking, and per the latest Burisma report, courtesy of the republican senate, Hunter Biden’s appointment on the Ukrainian energy company during his father’s veep gig was “awkward” and “problematic,” yet it never influenced policy. Spygate didn’t net anything either, not in time to save Trump, so our republican friends went with their old standby, aka Make.Shit.Up. Actually, as it turns out, the Kremiln made this last shit up and the rightwing media just perpetuated more Russian propaganda. The latest garbage involves Brennan-gate, which is a lousy scandal even by the standard Pizza-gate rating system (PRS). For those still not following the main theme, during an opportunity to remove a dangerously incompetent president from office via the impeachment process, the republican side of congress chose instead to ask a bunch of fictional questions that Sean Hannity and QAnon came up with after sniffing the Sharpies Glenn Beck copped from the Oval Office.
