Democratic Debate Notes by Jimmy Dore

  • Tim Ryan is an ignorant liar
  • Jake Tapper is a fake journalist working for a fake, corporate-sponsored “news” outlet
  • Delaney (???) is a useless hack
  • People such as Sanders and Warren, people with conviction and ideas and courage, conspicuously tower above this babbling fraternity of indoctrinated, beholden, well-compensated, compromised nitwits

Thank the gods for the PR industry which keeps stupid people such as Trump’s pet Mulvaney employed.

USA TODAY: ‘I promise you, you’re wrong’: Fox News’ Wallace shuts down Mulvaney claim Mueller vindicated Trump.

Mulvaney, Sarah Sanders, Frank Luntz, Sunday talk show imaginers. . . . Just throw out the stupidest misconstructions you can concoct in your unreasonable mind without any regard for their veracity, value, impact on society, capacity for destruction. . . . Great job!! 👏👏👏👏👏👏💰💰💰💰💰💰👹 You consummate dancing monkeys!!

Honesty; Crazy, by Seal

People who tell you to tell the truth are lying. That’s ironic, isn’t it? Not only are they lying by extolling the virtues of lying but they don’t actually want you to tell the truth. Who wishes to hear nothing but, or even just mostly, the truth? Not many! 🙂 Just shut up and face it.

And yes, it is crazy that in a world full of people only some want to fly. Excuse it however you like; it’s a crazy shame and denotes failure, failure on the part of multiple parties including those who “do not wish” to fly. That’s the best excuse for something, saying “that’s the way I *want* it to be”. Because considering for a slight moment that that is not in fact the way the person *wants* it to be would bring on the storm of truth.

If you have any idea what I’m talking about (generically, not specifically — in other words I’m not expecting only to hear from people who know me personally) please leave a comment so I know you are out there. 🙂 It’s nice to see Web traffic stats but actual feedback is extremely meaningful to me right now. (But that’s not your problem! I know! I know.) 🙂

Jamal Khashoggi: Trump says US asked for audio ‘if it exists’ | World news | The Guardian

Audio recording that reportedly proves Khashoggi was tortured before his murder has been given to US and Saudi Arabia, Turkey says

According to an account in the pro-government daily newspaper Yeni Şafak, and a later report citing Turkish officials by the New York Times, the audio recording proves that Khashoggi was seized as soon as he entered the office of the Saudi consul, Mohammad al-Otaibi, on 2 October.

The dissident journalist was beaten and had his fingers cut off, according to the news account. Otaibi asked for the torture to be done outside his office, saying: “You will put me in trouble.”

“If you want to live when you come back to Arabia, shut up,” the consul was told by a Saudi hit team who had flown to Istanbul hours before Khashoggi’s planned visit to the consulate, where he had expected to pick up legal papers he needed to get married.

Khashoggi was beheaded and his body was cut up. A Saudi forensics specialist Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy can be heard putting on headphones to listen to music and telling others to do the same while the body was dismembered, according to the reports.

Investigators believe that after the killing, Khashoggi’s body was taken to the consul general’s house, where it was disposed of.

If you remove the mundane artifice of legal jurisdictions, Drumpf, Pompeo, and the Saudi royal family are all complicit in some or all of murder, covering up a murder, and interfering with a murder investigation.  They are all brutal criminals plain and simple.  They just haven’t yet been convicted, tried, or imprisoned.  Their pathetically puny musterings in life must surely pale in comparison to the courage of Jamal Khashoggi and those like him who speak truth to power despite these potential consequences.

I hope that this may serve to mark a turning point in the way legitimate journalists and other truth-seekers are regarded by society.  They are in some ways the only people standing between us and chaotic, ignorant oblivion, a dark reality crafted only by the hands of those sufficiently corrupt to have aspired to power.
