Trump Derangement Syndrome

They can't let it go. The zombie Russiagate will not die...even though it is dead. Listen to or read this David Cay Johnston and Glenn Greenwald discussion this morning...

They can't let go of their own conspiracy theory.

Yet Amy just heard how russiagate helped Trump from Noam last week? (video or text)

But the best yet is Aaron Mate' and Jimmy's conversation...it is an hour with no transcript.

Game Over? Not Really. The Time has Come to Investigate the Perpatrators of the Russia Hoax

This morning's press conference with Attorney General Bill Barr, as he released the redacted report of the Mueller investigation to Congress, came and went without a single surprise for any well-informed person with critical thinking skills.

The Seething And Contempt In Greenwald's Eyes About the "Joke and a Fairy Tale" of Russiagate Is A Watershed Moment. "The Games Is Over."

Just like the Muslim freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's courageous stand against the fascist duopoly's attempt to crush her for daring to not back down from calling AIPAC a foreign lobby was a watershed moment in confronting the uncritical support of a RW Israeli government, Greenwald's blistering takedown of fellow journalist David Cay Johnston, and by extension the entire American MSM, is another watershed moment in the growing divide between media corporatists (Neoliberals & Neocons),

Growth

The world around me is greening. Trees are budding, blooming, and leafing. Last year's sugars stored in the roots return to the growing tips and are converted into green leaves - solar powered carbon fixers. Creating sugar from air and water is the nature of plant growth. The sugars are used to build more plant tissue as they reach for the sun. I guess we have to strive toward a goal ourselves to experience growth - the human equivalent of reaching for the sun. We could use more of the sensibility and sustainability of cyclic plant growth, relying on the sun and water for our power and energy. Perhaps we could grow to be a sane and functional society focused on the needs of people and the natural system rather than the cancerous growth of profit hungry war mongers in the US and around the world.

Conservative Magazine, sane analysis

...at least I think so.

A Morning Consult/Politico poll from January showed that while a plurality of Americans supported the decision to withdraw from Syria, 59 percent of those who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 opposed it, with 26 percent supporting. Compare this to a whopping 76 percent of Trump voters who support withdrawal. Only 14 percent oppose.

This is an astounding role reversal regarding the stance of both major parties on war and peace.

Carl Bernstein: the press has done an admirable job

Carl Bernstein defends the MSM.

CNN’s Carl Bernstein defended the media on Sunday against criticism of its coverage of President Donald Trump and the Russia probe, saying that the press “has done one of the greatest reporting jobs” in the history of presidential coverage.

Sundance on Barr Mueller Letter: No Russian Interference; Illegal Campaign Surveillance

Sundance at Conservative Treehouse has a provocative observation about the Barr Mueller Report Letter, the strongest part of which is this statement:

Those who are skilled in reviewing professionally obtuse legalese verbiage from the government will immediately pick up something. They are not saying the “DNC” was hacked...

Matt Taibbi says it all about Russiagate journalism disaster

In addition to Caitlin Johnstone's essay on the Mueller report release, I especially want to recommend Matt Taibbi's excellent piece, which is a comprehensive report on the entire Russiagate journalism debacle.

In case I transcribed the link incorrectly, Caitlin has a link in her article.
