A Bunch of Malarkey
Whoa. The consensus on that so-called debate: A "shit show" featuring a rabid, abusive, lying, bleach-injecting tax cheat who declined to condemn white supremacists because he is one. He did, however, declare himself the winner in a magic act of pre-lying hours before the fact, telling his supporters the debate "will go down in HISTORY." And he won praise for his " amazing" win from Borat and the Kazakh people; they urged, "Vote for Premier Trump or you will be crushed.”

The Biggest Loser
The Times confirms what cognizant bipeds suspected: The impeached president is a tawdry "one-man walking Ponzi scheme," a crook, tax cheat, con man and money-laundering "serial bankruptcy artist" who only played a billionaire on TV but was in fact a small, venal, inept emperor with no clothes or hair - though he spent $70,000 to get some - and a $1.1 billion debt. The sordid truth: "He's broke, he lives in our house and he's been stealing from us" - an " avatar for the age of plutocracy. "

Teach Your Children Well
As thousands pay tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the first woman, and Jew, to lie in state, we seek to find light where we can amidst the grief, dread, fury, rubble. There's resolve to Block Barrett. There's hard truth: "When the people speak, the Court listens," and they'll only save us if we fight for it. And there's the kids, heartbreaking and uplifting and reverential in their RBG collars, who with their parents came to honor " what America should be," and who give us hope.

"Negro" Justice: Erasing Breonna and Emmett and All the Rest
Protests continue against Louisville's grotesque decision to deny justice to Breonna Taylor but afford it to her neighbors' walls in an indictment that, after months of demands to Say Her Name, literally doesn't mention her: " It’s as if she was never there." In a dark twist, her killers were acquitted on the same date as Emmett Till's; his prescient mother had warned, if he didn't get justice, "It won't be safe for a Negro to walk the streets anywhere in America" - or, it turns out, sleep.

The Job of A Prophet
As a somber squad of her former law clerks stood guard, Ruth Bader Ginsburg returned for the last time to the Supreme Court to lie in repose; Friday, she will - astonishingly but aptly - become the first woman to lie in state at the Capitol. Amidst the political furor around her seat - and a slimy GOP blocking a ceremonial tribute - her rabbi movingly celebrated Ginsburg's steadfast life's work: Insisting "the Constitution deliver on its promise that 'we the people' include all the people."

It Is What It Is: Recreating the Crime, Over and Over
As U.S COVID deaths passed 200,000 - a death a minute, the most in the world - the sociopath who owns them topped himself in depravity by declaring coronavirus "affects virtually nobody" but some "elderly people," who were not available for comment. Yet the travesty goes on: A group put up 20,000 flags in D.C. to mark the grim milestone while Press Barbie Moving-the-Ghastly-Goal-Posts bragged that, given it could have been two million and some Americans are still alive, good job all around!

Low, Even For Them
Proving (again) he's "the worst person on earth," Trump and his dumpster fire thugs are busy betraying everything Ruth Bader Ginsburg stood and fought for. Echoing a cretinous GOP - Dems are "bloodthirsty political killers," "FILL THAT SEAT!" - Trump claims RBG's dying wish wasn't really her dying wish. "That sounds like a Schumer deal or maybe a Pelosi or Shifty Schiff," he mused. "So that came out of the wind.” Soon, like a miracle, may he go back into it. For now, we must be ruthless.

For RBG: Today We Grieve, Tomorrow We Fight
In a year that just takes and takes, the sudden death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg has, for now, broken many. And that's before the vile McConnell vowed within an hour to try to replace her. Jewish tradition deems a person who dies on Rosh Hashanah a tzaddik, a person of great righteousness. Because she was, we're compelled to honor her long, hard, tenacious work by fighting back harder than ever. Now we cry, soon we vote. M ay her memory be a blessing, and a revolution.

So That Everyone Knows: From Jim Crow To Josef Mengele
The gruesome revelations of black nurse, hero and whistleblower Dawn Wooten on forced sterilizations and "jarring medical neglect" of women held in ICE detention centers - where "only God is taking care of us here" - reflect not just the long grim history of such American atrocities, but what they spawned. From Never Again Is Now: "It's not just that our government is using the Nazi playbook. It's that they're halfway through it" - and that the Nazis studied U.S. racist policies to create it.

Plummeting Loser
Maybe because he just told his 487,564th lie - we'll have a COVID vaccine by Friday - or he admitted he wanted to assassinate Syria's Assad or he used Russian images to tout support for our troops or he's spreading a vile #PedoBiden (pot/kettle) slur or oh yeah he's killed 195,000 people by gross negligence, but for whatever reason a new survey tags the cretinous Trump the least trusted world leader, who just 16% of people think would “do the right thing" in a crisis. Seems high to us.
