There Is No Reason To Panic Because We Have Done Very Very Good On This Caronavirus Thing Which Anyway Is Just the Flu Also Dems Are Bad and Go USA!
OK people, we can all relax because Dear Leader, who got his medical degree from Trump University, and Mike 'Who Needs Science When You Have the Rapture' Pence are taking care of the alleged coronavirus pandemic so what could go wrong? At a disjointed briefing, Trump assured us, "We're very, very ready for this," though he spelled it caronavirus and gutted CDC health funding and experts say it's "inevitable" the virus will spread, but it's Pelosi's and Obama's fault so all good.

On the Slimy Lies She Tells and Games She Plays and Company She Keeps
Jesus, we wish the ever-appalling Susan Collins would go home already. Instead, in recent days she welcomed racist, moronic, mini-Trumpster Paul Lepage back to Maine, whined about opponents' dark money ads she herself cast the deciding vote for a decade ago, lied (again) about the 2017 tax scam she voted for, voted for one of two grotesque GOP anti-abortion bills, and said she's kinda disappointed by another insane Trump personnel pick. And yes, she furrowed her contemptible brow.

Taking It Back: Your Sons and Your Daughters Are Beyond Your Command
The Bernie surge has sparked talk of "a wake-up moment for the American power establishment," from Democratic leaders to panicked media. It's also exposed the hunger for change of those enduring this unholy regime, and the need to see a way out. With calm, lucid perspective, historian Heather Cox Richardson offers it: Oligarchs also stole democracy - government, media, courts - in the 1850s, 1890s, 1920s. Now as then, young people and many others, speaking up and showing up, can take it back.

I Respectfully (Fiercely) Dissent: Sotomayor Says the Quiet, Terrifying Parts Out Loud
Taking the rare, brave step of ripping her complicit colleagues, Justice Sonia Sotomayor just wrote a scathing dissent on a SCOTUS ruling approving Trump's "public charge rule" - a cruel, nativist, likely illegal wealth test to keep out immigrants - in the name of one more "emergency" that threatens "irreparable harm" to the country. By increasingly doing the bidding of "one litigant over all others," she charged, Court right-wingers are doing irreparable harm to justice itself.

A (Bare) Glimmer of Hope
Amidst the venality, small good news from Arizona, where a judge sided with humanity and migrants arguing that conditions in U.S. concentration camps are "punitive and violate the Constitution" - thus meagerly gifting them, after a five-year lawsuit, a voice, a blanket and decent food. It's one of several rulings against Trump's barbarity to newcomers - who, in a stirring, buoyant citizenship ceremony in Maine this week, vitally reminded us America's still here, just waiting to be reclaimed.

Pardoning the Swamp
In what was a good day for rich male felon low-lifes and a "legal dumpster fire" for anyone with a lingering belief in justice, the Mobster-In-Chief offered clemency to a bunch of white-collar criminals, possibly in a test run for letting off Roger Stone, Manafort, Flynn etc. Most egregiously, Trump freed R od Blagojevich, who famously tried both to sell Obama's Senate seat and extort a children's hospital for campaign money, because "he seems like a very nice person." Up next: Hannibal Lector.

Aww Look: Nazis Getting Married
So cute: Partners in crimes against humanity Stephen Miller, who likes to rip brown kids from their parents, and Katie Waldman, who called teargassed migrants "a violent mob," just got married - at a Trump hotel, duh. The event featured white nationalist cake, Elvis, God - "I object" - and a crowd of festive GOPers, though some reportedly worry Waldman doesn't look quite master-racey enough. The happy couple, who are totally not fascists, hope to soon cage children of their own.

Brilliant New $5.34 Ladder Defeats Not So Brilliant $2.5 Billion Trump Fever Dream
Less than shockingly, persistent Mexicans have found another cheap, smart, handy way to scale Trump's "beautiful" and "impregnable" border wall. Having breached the stupidity with ladders, power tools, free climbing, at least one car and Mother Nature - a gust of wind - aspiring migrants are making camo, hook-and-ladder rigs from lightweight rebar used in building and (LOL) the wall itself. Cost: 99 pesos, or $5.34, at the Hágalo hardware store. Translation: Do It Yourself.

After Trump Shoots Susan Collins In the Middle of 5th Avenue, She Says She's "Troubled" But Still Supports Him
Maintaining her ceaseless, craven political posturing, hopefully former Sen. Susan Collins somehow continues to deny Trump's atrocities and her own culpability. This week, she fled a query about whether she still thinks Trump learned his "lesson" from impeachment, and dismissed his ugly Revenge Tour by placidly explaining he's just " angered" and that's "reflected in (his) personnel choices." Her Presidential Medal of Waffling is probs in the mail. But b efore it arrives, vo te her out.

Thugs R Us: Roger Stone Prosecutors All Quit After DOJ Meddles in Sentencing To Appease Mad King and There's More
Nothing to see here in an unraveling republic, except all four prosecutors of convicted felon, political cockroach and Trump bestie Roger Stone just quit the case when the Justice Dept (sic) weirdly overrode them to cut Stone's sentence. Of course it had nothing to do with Trump throwing a 2 a.m. hissy fit and anyway what is this "justice" of which you speak? He's also going after more mean truth-tellers. Horrific consensus: "It's a break-glass-in-case-of-fire moment for justice in America."
