They Say There's Never Been Anything Like It Ever Before: Dumpster Fire In Israel Promotes the Possibility of Lasting Peach
Oh, the ruinous phantasmagoria of our moron loose in the world, from cringeworthy typos to grandiose gaffes - "I never said Israel!" - to the sight of "a giant hate carrot" slipping into one of the world's holy sites his scribbled unholy requests - for pussy, chocolate cake, a nap? He spent 15 minutes at the Holocaust Museum - "So amazing!" - and an hour in the West Bank. Unsurprisingly, say Palestinians, "Nothing has changed" in a grim bloody Occupation that turns 50 in June. Thanks, America.

KKK Is Okay By Us
New guerrilla art made a dazzling, albeit brief, appearance this weekend when artist/activist Robin Bell lit up the Department of Justice and FBI buildings with projections calling out AG and good-ole-white-boy Jeff Sessions for his failure to recuse, his affinity for the KKK, and the need to fire him for crimes against decency and competence - this, most newly, surreally manifested in his cruel proposal to bring back the long-savaged war on crime and drugs.

This Is American Justice: On Betty Shelby and Malcolm X
Malcolm X would have turned 92 Friday, two days after white Tulsa cop Betty Shelby was acquitted of fatally shooting unarmed, hands-in-the-air "bad dude" - aka big black man - Terrence Crutcher after his car fatally stalled. At her trial, Shelby said she'd "never been so scared," adding, "I can't believe he made me do it." The more things change: It was 55 years ago the prescient Malcolm warned, "They put their club upside your head, and (then) accuse you of attacking them."

Little Donny Goes On A Trip
With Drumpf heading to Brussels to meet with the big boys, NATO leaders are said to be "freaking out" about handling a thin-skinned, tantrum-throwing, attention-deficit toddler man "who has no knowledge of NATO, no interest in in-depth policy issues, nothing”; their child-proofing prep includes keeping presentations under four minutes with, presumably, no bigly words. Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States.

Hyperbole Is Dead
Whoah. It's nigh-on-impossible to keep up with the latest mind-blowing twists in the Comey Paper Trail/ Russia Intel Giveaway/ More Nixonian Than Nixon/ Tangerine Nightmare saga, or to process the surreal state of the Republic. To date: Maine's Sen. Angus King talks impeachment, Jason Chaffetz claims "I have my subpoena pen ready," the Rogue POTUS Staff account is live again, and Rachel Maddow has declared, "Hyperbole is dead."

Black Mamas Bailout Day: Because All Of Us Are Fallen
Declaring in the tradition of their ancestors, "We're gonna free ourselves," a coalition of 25 grassroots, black-led groups bought the freedom of about 60 black women jailed around the country for low-level offenses by raising $550,000 to pay their bail and bring them home for Mother's Day. The slogan for the campaign, aimed at an unjust bail system that punishes people, especially women of color, for being poor: "Money kept them in. Black love got them out."

Garbage In, Garbage Out: Happy Birthday George Carlin
The take-no-prisoners George Carlin would have turned 80 on Friday. It's hard not to wonder what the guy who famously berated a country where "Anybody can be president. That's the problem" would have made of the Trumpster calamity. Prescient, he savaged both politicians and the soulless culture that made them, arguing, "If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you’re going to get selfish, ignorant leaders." From his trippy weatherman: "Tonight's forecast: Dark."

The True Definition of Unapologetic
The electrifying moment of solidarity at the historically black Bethune-Cookman University commencement, when about half the graduates loudly booed and defiantly turned their backs on rich destroyer of public schools Betsy DeVos, has passed. But its power remains: Many community members have applauded the students' courage "in the face of assumed power," and over 200 black professors have written an open letter proclaiming, "You are the best of us."

Kissinger Cuffed Hey We Know: Let's Bring Some Despots and War Criminals To the White House To Calm Everyone Down
Irony Overload Warning: Facing a massive Comey backlash, the Trump circus got their best optics consultants in and decided the most cunning way to say "Not Like Nixon" and "Not About Russia" was to meet with ancient war criminal Henry Kissinger and two top Russian officials, while only allowing in Russian press to report it. Ole Henry, the Russians, and Putin in full hockey gear all said everything's cool and never mind that "false news." Wait, what?

Lots of Copies Make Stuff Safe: Saving Trump's Bigly Dumb Words
Little Donny is busy. Tuesday he fired Comey - a brazen move dubbed a purge, a coup and "the most NIXON WATERGATE DEMOCRACY DIES IN DARKNESS thing since whatever Trump did yesterday." Monday, on the off chance he ever said anything stupid, his minions deleted all press releases before Jan 1. Enter the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, which, facing a regime not so fond of free speech, had wisely backed them all up. Because the Internet never forgets.
