Trump Stooge Susan Collins Should Be Some Worried, Maybe Even Troubled
Further re-enforcing the fact it's long past time for Susan "I Guess I'll Vote For the Drunken Rapist" Collins to go, the Lincoln Project just released a blistering ad ripping her for what she is - a Trump stooge who "makes excuses for corruption, for criminality, for cruelty." She also released her own weirdly ruinous ad; purportedly against opponent Sara Gideon, it's so good at highlighting Gideon's stellar policy goals, from health care to election reform, Gideon should thank her for it.

Some Problems: Moron, Fascist, COVID, Doomed, Help
Oh, the stupid. Having spent last week boasting about his "amazing" cognitive triumph of repeating the five words, “person, woman, man, camera, TV” in order - "extra points!" - Trump just spent a coronavirus briefing touting a "very impressive" doctor who says hydroxychloroquine "cures" COVID-19 and masks don't work. She also says sex with demons causes gynecological issues, doctors are using alien DNA to treat people, and the world is run by reptilian humanoids. Nothing to see here.

Operation Diligent Valor: Teargassing Nurses, Shooting Medics, Attacking Veterans Who've Seen Their Own Atrocities, Thanks
Protests still swell in Portland, where the racist ghoul has dismissed "mothers" in the streets as "a scam" and " anarchists who hate our Country." Meanwhile, his thugs are exposed as "robocops of border control" with a famed "culture of cruelty" even as they continue to drag off moms, flash-bang vets, and shoot in the head a 52-year-old history professor who teaches " the historical slide by which seemingly vibrant democracies succumbed to authoritarian rule. We are on that slide."

Baseball Takes A Knee
At COVID-19 delayed, bi-coastal opening day ceremonies for Major League Baseball, players and coaches all kneeled on the field before lifting a black banner against "the current state of systemic racism in our country." From D.C. - Nationals vs. Yankees - to L.A. - Dodgers vs. Giants, the actions mark a small, key change in one of America's whitest sports, and a sign the convulsions in our streets are spurring athletes to challenge the long dismissive concept they "just stick to sports."

Moms, Dads, Vets, Patriots Respond to Trump Gestapo Surge: Right Back Atcha
Trump's move to go full fascist invasion by sending troops into cities "plagued by violent crime" wasn't unexpected, but to the masterful bungler of the art of the deal, the fierce resistance of a livid nation may be. In Portland, his goons have met with swelling protests, a resolute Wall of Moms, and a Wall of Dads using leaf-blowers to reverse the teargas. Now thousands more - moms, dads, vets and " just us normal people out here" - are vowing to do the same. So yeah, he may yet get his wall.

Flying Blind: Delusional, Our "Favorite President" Is
In unsurprising news unless you're locked down even more zealously than we are, the first broad review of US COVID-19 data shows a disastrous "failure of national leadership" resulting in "a cacophony of confusing data.” Still, our brave leader just gave us an update on "the China virus": After 4 million cases and 140,000 deaths, they're "developing a strategy that's going to be very, very powerful," masks may be a good idea for now, and he sends best wishes to Ghislaine Maxwell.

Then They Came For the Drummers, Chanters, Chalk Artists, Trash Pickers, Balloon Carriers, Bike-Helmeted Moms and Naked Athena
Having giddily praised the "fantastic job" by federal goons in Portland tear-gassing moms, medics, reporters and stubbornly peaceful protesters, TrumPinochet is now making the "decidedly fascist" threat to invade other American cities to protect them from "violent anarchists" painting on the sidewalks - though social media shows endless video of rabid, rioting police. "This is how it starts," intones the newest Lincoln Project ad. A few days ago, it seemed over the top. Now it's not.

Our Conscience: John Lewis Dies
John Lewis - sharecroppers' son, civil rights icon, maker of good trouble, indefatigable "conscience of the Congress" who for 60 years strove to "redeem the soul of America" - has died of cancer at 80. From the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma - "When you lose your sense of fear, you're free" - until the end, Lewis held fast to his fierce moral clarity and determination to forge a "beloved community" of equality. Always, he asked, "If not us, then who? If not now, then when?" Thank you, sir.

Doctors to Idiot Repubs: Listen to Fauci, Stay On Your Couchy
Nothing To See Here Chap. 574: As COVID-19 soars in the U.S. - today, 3.5 million cases and 138,000 deaths - the Crime-Boss-In-Chief is selling beans, hiding the deadly stats, and sending his minions to, however implausibly, blame the carnage on renowned infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci. Uh, no, say a crush of doctors, including 12,000 of his close colleagues, who call bullshit: To end this crisis, "America must support public health experts (and) Dr. Fauci, and stand with science."

Nepotism Barbie to Huddled Masses: Try Something New To Eat With Your Cake!
Marking Bastille Day though in truth they likely didn't know it because, books, Trump and his clueless daughter Ivanka Antoinette just launched their latest sick joke of a balm to 50 million Americans out of work with benefits ending and immunocompromised parents and kids about to be forced into plague-ridden classrooms: a shiny new ad campaign and website - with no attendant plan, money or support - touting the vapid slogan, "Find Something New!" And yes, many people plan to on Nov. 3.
