    Holy moly this is ... this is something. He looks and sounds terrible.

    Also, I was really mad at Alison Krauss for being part of this farce but you can see her stunned disbelief and trying not to laugh so maybe she's not a Trumper and made a bad centrist "let's all get along" decision that she clearly regretted in the moment.

    I was also super bummed about Alison; I hope it was just a one-off bad life choice.

    Am I the only one around here who isn't depressed?


    FIGHTING WORDS


    In Three Touchstone Speeches, Elizabeth Warren Grounds Her Campaign in a History of American Protest and Movement Building


    https://theintercept.com/2019/11/23/...chy452KUmQDsu0


    “I’ve learned that no matter what fight you’re in today, no matter how steep the climb feels, there are fighters who were here before you. Fighters we can learn from.”
    I am officially the Pollyanna of the Apocolypse in my local Indivisible group now. That's what happened when I mentioned that Stacey Abrams might just as easily hitch her wagon to Liz's star as Joe Biden's. Even they can't argue with The Intercept. When someone ventured the opinion that she could just as easily choose Bernie Sanders, I told them he should probably send her a bunch of flowers to remind her of that fact. I'm sure she'll consider every possibility.

    Breaking news from Elizabeth Warren's page this morning:

    I don't know why he went to the hospital. It could have been something minor but embarrassing, like hemorrhoids. well, considering he IS a hemorrhoid, I mean bleeding ass ulcers, not his general persona.

    But it 100% wasn't a partial, routine check up. And he's been looking and sounding worse since then. And he hasn't gone golfing. I saw a lot of speculation, but no real "THIS IS WHAT HE HAD" statements. So this



    reeks to me of projection with the world's biggest projector. That and grifting are truly his only gifts. If he's saying this, then maybe he actually did have some kind of heart problem.

    eta: I just realized the SOTU is in two months or so. Impeachment won't be done by then, I think. And if he did have some significant health issue that left him permanently even more... off... it's gonna be something fucking else.

    NSFW. NSF Life.



    ps the whole Rocky-body/Trump-head thing as projection really fuels the "he must be really sick" idea

    Sobbing, Confused Mike Pence Spotted Leaving Lamb of God Show Early


    “The impeachment hoax has been very trying, so Mother recommended I attend a Lamb of God revival at this church called The Anthem,” reported the tear-stained Vice President. “The crowd wasn’t what you would expect at a revival, but if anyone needed to hear the good news of the Gospel, it was these people. Much to my chagrin, it turned out to be a rock ‘n’ roll show… and a very evil one at that. Fortunately, the Secret Service stepped in and got me out of there, but it was all very upsetting.”


    That's probably the Tori concert I was too stupid to go to.

    I wrote an open letter to Governor Hogan two days ago, then I started kicking up dust in the neighborhood threads. The idiot Bernie Bots at The Guardian are shitting themselves with worry about Liz right now. That's because they know she's going to have a resurgence soon. Just my opinion.

    @uncanny hats: a serious question: when I first encountered nunu I wondered what on earth guy like him was doing when he was calling for a revolution. Clearly a bright guy who everybody listened to because he was informative and funny, in spite of the fact that he obviously had more cruel experiences in life than many, so he knew what he's talking about. I thought it was odd that he kept advocating ransacking the local headquarters of WTF when that could only have a negative effect on all involved. Have you ever been arrested by the FBI? Put on a watch list? Your biases may not be as apparent to us as to you. Some of these Save the Animals protesters are nothing but terrorists and will be tracked no matter what they do.

    I have all sorts of things I'd like to share with you, but I'm not wasting any more time. You'd better lean in now if you want to use my currency.

    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    ^ The Crown is doing a good job at showing the worst of American Presidents, their vanity and foolishness. It's gonna be a wild ride when we get to Reagan and Trump.

    I hope they continue to nail the small details, like superb make-up matching skin tones, hands to face.

    Well, if we don't all die from continent consuming fires or nuclear holocaust with Iran, here's something else that's fun to chew on

    It looks like dementia as well as malignant narcissism. And the public tipping point is coming

    ...he began spotting signs of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) in Donald J. Trump, and began tweeting about it in February 2017. He uses videos to demonstrate.

    ...

    Other videos show a lot of dragging of his right foot, other full-body twitches, and of course the famous two-handed drinking technique.

    NPD can make people groom themselves oddly but so can FTD, even more oddly…

    ...

    It’s not that his having FTD means he doesn’t have NPD. He has both.

    ...

    FTD is incurable. Whatever drugs Trump is on, because I don’t doubt he is on some, are only there to mask symptoms enough to keep him going. If Tom Joseph’s long-trained instincts are correct, we know what will kill Trump and even roughly when, unless a heart attack, stroke or some other fatal disease happens first. Notice that Joseph estimates Trump’s years with the disease as approximately 2012-2024, but doesn’t take this predictive table —

    Year / Est
    <19 Behavior, concentration, speech, memory
    19 Disorientation, rage, paranoia
    20 Balance, non-communicative
    21 Wheelchair
    22 Aspiration
    23 Bedridden, 24/7 care

    — to 2024. He’s too polite and kind to say “24... Death”. He also knows he might be wrong and it might happen later. But if he is right, Trump will be too incapacitated to be politically relevant by then for sure, or much sooner.

    ...

    Nancy Pelosi knows it. Because of course she does. But she is not being loudly public about it. She is playing for time because when a degenerative disease is being covered up, time is on the side of truth. She wants the public to notice for ourselves so that accusations of partisanship against her will ring false.

    It can only be covered up for so long. Obvious spasms like the one captured in this diary’s illustration are preserved forever on video, for minute examination. The tweets and rally speeches are getting more disconnected with reality each day. .
    You can't accurate diagnose someone from afar. Well, maybe YOU can or I can but the chances of both of us being right? Not so good. People get lucky and recognize things from their own experience, but it's not a true diagnosis. HOWEVER there is something there and why aren't more people screaming about it? Why hasn't the Walter Reed visit come back up?

    Maybe he's just a lazy slob who has a truss and lifts. But maybe he has balance-assistance. Maybe he's a narcissist ODing on adulation but maybe he's having mini strokes. I don't want to get sucked into CT land, but it's really pushing my limits to think there's no there there.

    Just watched Rachel Maddow.
    Holy Shit.

    This makes Watergate look like small potatoes.

    The stuff Parnas said about Pence and what Greg Pence said to Robert Hyde. Dude (Hyde) thought secret service was going to kill him.
    Who said you were evil?
    My SAT scores.

    AND IT WAS ONLY PART ONE.

    I'm sure the "good" stuff was in p1 because you wouldn't want your bombshells leaked before p2 but p2 isn't exactly going to exonerate anyone.

    Parnas could be full of shit but it's clear it needs to be investigated. And who thinks everything he said was false when he has physical evidence to back it up?
