Kahomono - It Means Lucky

Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

“You have been watching,” said the disembodied voice of Anderson Cooper, “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader that I’ve ever seen.”

So Pumpkin went to Helsinki and did everything his boss, Putin, could have wanted. Maybe even more.

These two men are loyal to Russia, and neither of them to the USA. That makes one of them good at his job, and the other a traitor. (NYTimes. Click through for the whole story)

He did not blame Putin for Putin’s meddling in our election.  He blamed the US intelligence community for pointing it out!  He blamed the press for reporting it!

Disgraceful is the mildest word.

Please Use the N-Word

Nazis, or as Pumpkin has called them, “very fine people.”  On the other hand, the 1933-45 German version probably did indeed have Germany’s interests at heart, even while going about it very badly from every point of view.  They were certainly not trying to sell it out to Russia or any other foreign power.

Rick Wilson (no friend of Pumpkin, to be sure), says in this Newsweek piece that the cruelty of the “zero tolerance” immigration edicts and stripping babies from their mothers plays well on TV, revving up their base of shitty, shitty people.

And their core supporters want anybody who’s darker than a latte deported. They’re not happy about immigration of any kind. They don’t believe in the asylum process. They want to take and separate these families as a matter of deterrence and as a sort of theater of cruelty. I think it really doesn’t speak well to their moral standing.

Everyone darker than a latte!  What do you want to bet that will also mean Jews and LGBTQ+ people before this is over?

That last sentence, by the way, is Wilson’s entry in the Understatement Olympics.


It’s Who Ya Know

The Hammonds got pardoned for setting fires on public lands ahead of a line of ten thousand other applications because their lawyer knew someone… who knows Forrest Lucas… who knows (and gives money to) Mike “Whitest Man Alive” Pence.

Are you pardoning people for felonies because they’re buddies with the members of your administration?  You might be a redneck!  Or a banana republic! Or BOTH! 

Eight Thugs

Where did eight Rethuglican US Senators decide to spend July 4th?  Moscow of course.

Now that they are back in the USA, they have messages for us all. Like, we’ve blown that whole Russia-meddled-in-the-election thing all out of proportion. After all, they didn’t mess with the results of The Voice, I guess?  So those sanctions are a total overreaction.

I’m guessing the Russians showed these traitors some interesting video on the order of the legendary pee tape?  What do you think?

And in a week, Pumpkin meets Putin 1:1 in a room alone with only translators.  #WCGW?



Taking Food From Babies

Breastfeeding scares the piss out of Pumpkin!  Who knew?

click through for a better op-ed (yes!) from the NYT

World health officials were stunned when the US balked at as innocuous a resolution as you can imagine: to encourage women around the world to breastfeed their babies.  The US delegation threatened Ecuador (Ecuador!) with trade repercussions if they did not agree to weaken key provisions.

I can think of a few reasons why Pumpkin’s minions would take this line:

  • People of low and modest incomes all over the world would have a healthier start to their lives.  As we can see from the Obamacare battles, the last thing Pumpkin wants is for anyone other than rich white men to have good health.  Everyone who is not one of those (or a dupe thereof) is coming for him eventually.
  • Women’s breasts should only serve their primary purpose (to Pumpkin) of looking sexy for him.  Feeding babies is not sexy.  QED.
  • The rich white men who own Pumpkin also own stock in companies that make inferior fake breastmilk, also known as baby formula.  Pumpkin must do anything possible to prevent them from losing profits.  Breastmilk is free, all the other products are not.

Just when you can’t believe the Pumpkin krew can get any more evil, they say, “hold my beer!
