Watch countless American news anchors mindlessly intone the same propaganda script

“Extremely dangerous for democracy,” is just one phrase in the uncanny propagandistic script that dozens (hundreds?) of news anchors “report” in this compilation video. The effect is creepy and surreal; the connection is that all the stations are owned by the same conservative corporation, Sinclair, which is where the marching orders come from.

Republicans and Trump kill anti-wage-theft rule, will funnel your taxes to companies that rob and endanger workers

The Obama-era Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces rule was intended to prevent companies with a history of wage-theft and unsafe working conditions from getting federal government contracts; the GOP in the Senate and House passed a bill rescinding this rule and then Trump signed it, eliminating any possibility that companies that endanger and steal from workers will be excluded from receiving your tax dollars.

After interviewing Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie and other CA sources and reviewing leaked documents, the Washington Post has pieced together the story of how the dirty-tricking electioneers worked their way Republican political circles, as billionaire founder Robert Mercer opened doors for them with other notorious GOP billionaire backers, with an able assist from newly minted national security adviser John Bolton, a notorious war-criminal with close ties to terrorist groups like MEK.

Joe Biden would rather ‘beat the hell’ out of Trump than debate him

Joe Biden continues to say what he thinks, and advocates violence against sexual predators.

Via the Daily Beast:

Appearing Tuesday evening at a University of Miami event, the former vice president declared that a younger version of himself would have had no problem resorting to fisticuffs to teach Trump a lesson about dignity.

“When a guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,’” Biden said during the anti-sexual assault It’s On Us event. “They asked me if I’d like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.’”

Biden, who is often discussed as a frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, went on to refer to Trump’s infamous “locker-room talk” excuse for his vulgar words about women.

“I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life,” Biden said. “I’m a pretty damn good athlete.”

He quipped: “Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest SOB in the room.”
