    … Stephen Colbert began Thursday’s Late Show monologue with “a fun story” for his audience. “There is a petition currently circulating here in New York City to rename the stretch of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets ‘President Barack Obama Avenue,’” he said. “To make the honor complete, whenever a car tries to turn left it will be blocked by Mitch McConnell.” …

    Did any of you see Colbert on with Anderson Cooper last night? I always listen to Rachel, but a good friend texted me that he was on CNN so I changed and listened. About halfway through, they began talking about their mother’s, their childhood, things that shaped them. More or less drifted into a grief counseling session. Then, from there. Colbert began talking about his faith, which is remarkedly deep. Colbert ended up ministering/witnessing to A. Cooper on national TV. It was very interesting.

      Then you missed Rachel’s piece on so-called “ethnographic-nationalism”:
      “law journal article by Donald Trump federal court nominee Steven Menashi in which he argues democratic countries work better when everyone in the same ethnicity.”

      As well as:
      State Rep Kelly Flood explained how via sleight of hand, the Kentucky legislature put a new aluminum plant connected to (Putin’s) Deripaska into play in their state.
      —imo the KY legislature was tricked by omission into signing off on $15 million for Deripaska.
      —imo this and all similar economic treachery must be nipped in the bud.
      —imo McConnell is openly corrupt and working for Russia. What do we do about it?

    “Greenland became Danish in 1814, and was fully integrated in the Danish state in 1953 under the

      Greenland contains 10% of the world’s fresh water reserves – on ice.
      Therefore KEY to the climate crisis fallout. Greenland ice melt is increasing (understatement):
      And its fresh water melt dilutes the warm salt waters of the Gulf Stream….that critically heat eastern U.S.
      + Canada + Western Europe.
      –A major prize to anyone who can convey the above to the Guost of Christmas past.

    On the ruling that:
    Benito must give the children he has abducted and put behind bars: Soap, Sleep, Toothpaste.
    – 80% of these children have families or sponsors in the U.S.
    – And could be waiting for due process with their loved ones. Why aren’t we focusing on this?

      “Alaska Native women continue to suffer the highest rate of forcible sexual assault and have reported rates of domestic violence up to 10 times higher than in the rest of the United States.
      Though available data is limited, the number of missing and murdered American Indian and Alaska Native women and the lack of a diligent and adequate federal response is extremely alarming to indigenous women, tribal governments, and communities. On some reservations, indigenous women are murdered at more than ten times the national average. Statistics define the scale of the problem, but do nothing to convey the experience of the epidemic. They tell part of the story, but fail to account for the devastating impacts this violence has on the survivors, Indian families, Native communities, and Indian nations themselves. Native children exposed to violence suffer rates of PTSD three times higher than the rest of the general population. Nevertheless, the statistics make absolutely clear that violence against Native women is a crisis that cannot wait to be addressed.”

          When my husband died unexpectedly of a heart attack at 52 the people of Juneau, AK came out big for us. Our priest said he had never seen so many people even for Xmas Eve Mass and that they could not all fit in the church. I know the hugs and sympathetic crowd literally gave me strength. I felt the love envelop me. I hope he has a similar experience.

      Oh the “Power of Positive Thinking” Norman Peale effect. Peale was a guru to Trump and his father.
      Trump thinks he can will what he wants to see into being. Thus lies are not really lies but magical thinking.

We can win this thing without the weak ass GOPers who just happen to dislike Orange Hitler, but are fine with everything the GOP is doing. They don’t wanna be in out tent.

      I keep wondering how much a part of that is him still thinking he can work with Mitch McConnell? Like he can reason with the GOP Senate? When the rest of us actually hear McConnell call himself “Grim Reaper”, “Darth Vader”, “Cocaine Mitch” and even John McCain vowing to never even allow a vote on anyone Hillary Clinton would nominate to SCOTUS. The GOP is TRASH.

They are actively, and gleefully hurting people to line their own pockets and those of their friends and benefactors. They don’t care about democracy and they don’t mind being owned by Putin. They are traitors.
