“Justice” Roberts


How can anyone wearing the robes of a judge sit quietly by as the very concept of justice is made a mockery of? Roberts is proving decisively that he is a creature of the GOP and unfit to wear the robes of Chief Justice. From the very beginning when he tried to muff Obama’s swearing in to now, he’s been a quietly smiling assassin of democracy.

The GOP’s vote today not to have witnesses or evidence is proof that Trump is guilty.

There is a firsthand witness and evidence that these people are also involved – and are now running the trial they are suppressing witnesses and evidence from – neat, eh?

Vice President Pence

Rick Perry

Mike Pompeo

Bill Barr

Lindsey Graham

Devin Nunes

John Solomon

Joe diGenova

Victoria Toensing

Rudi Giuliani

These guys make Nixon look like a piker.

November? Seriously?? Give this crowd of halfwit holier-than-thou hooligans hundreds of days more to wreck our nation??

That is the wrong answer folks.

Trump has to go NOW, the damage being done on a daily basis is horrendous and getting worse by the day.

Now that his buddies look to be giving him a free pass, you can count on it getting far, far worse.

I have every expectation Trump will try to order a nuclear strike somewhere in the middle east at the first opportunity.

Let’s hope our military leaders intervene and save us all.

We occupy. We hope you will, too.

Nothing in nature takes more than its share.” “I Am,” Tom Shadyac, director.

Every weekday morning most Americans walk into the jaws of a beast that is consuming our world. They do it willingly or unwillingly, wittingly or unwittingly, helpless not to contribute to an economic engine that drives without a brake. Like cancer it has an endless appetite for growth and like cancer it masquerades as healthy behavior.

To those around it, it seems normal, as normal as earning a living. Its grasping energy fixes our attention on money as a scarce and essential commodity and ensures our participation through the mechanism of debt. We occupy Wall Street and elsewhere to illuminate a diseased condition. This beast of endless consumption is not who we are even though its life is fed by our lives and its appetite by our own.

This relentless cycle is in fact a Ponzi scheme that will destroy our world in an endgame of extinction.

We occupy to assert our inalienable right as human persons to enjoy a future for ourselves and our children and their children to an untold generation. We occupy to free ourselves from the infection the beast has spawned within us. We occupy to free future generations from indenture to the beast. We occupy in the faith that the human spirit will not rest until freedom and a peace based on justice govern human affairs, will not rest until our world is encircled by a vibrant nature.

Spring is coming; we hope at some point you will join us.

McInnis pilfering content

What? Another GOP crimminal?

Scott McInnis, Plagiariser First Class

Gee, the story ideas show up like… well… like lightning bolts.

On the heels of the ColoradoPols story about the Denver Post ordering them to stop linking to them, comes this lovely nugget courtesy of the CO GOP (link to Associated Press story – go read it, it’s great).

Scott McInnis, Republican candidate for governor was using great swathes of work by a Colorado Supreme Court judge – Justice Gregory Hobbs in essays he was paid $300,000 to write as part of a fellowship from the Hasan Family Foundation. It wasn’t just big chunks that got ripped off – it was whole sections of the essays. Cut and paste is clearly new to Mr. McInnis and he’s showing beginners’ enthusiasm.

McInnis has apologized privately but not publicly – and has no plans to.

McInnis calls the plagiarism ‘regrettable’ – I’ll bet he’s regretting it now that he’s been caught – just like all the members in the clown carnival that is the CO GOP.

The chairwoman of the Hasan Family Foundation, Seeme Hasan said she was: “…shocked, angry and disappointed” – imagine how pissed off she was when she found out about the plagiarism and that McInnis had an assistant doing the work. Ouch. I’d be ‘shocked, angry and disappointed’ too. In fact, to paraphrase the movie ‘Top Gun,’ I’d ‘want some butts!’

Colorado Speaker of the House Terrence Carroll thinks McInnis should bow out of the campaign:

Indeed, the Hasan Family Foundation will “conduct an independent, internal investigation and if the allegations are proven to be true, we will demand Mr. McInnis return all monies paid to him.”

Oh, here’s the transparency angle! No one knew about this crime because the essays McInnis wrote weren’t made public when written in  2004. Reporters started asking about them and the Hasan Family Foundation put the essay ‘Musings on Water’ on its website and the dooty hit the fan shortly afterwards.

Gee… I remember when the Ward Churchill brouhaha was brewing…. plagiarism was… was… TREASON!!!!! Maybe not so much these days. OKIYAR?

So, let’s sum up shall we?

  • GOP politician “left Congress” (i.e. ‘LOST!!‘ per our local bloggers)
  • GOP politician gets lucrative make-work deal from wealthy pals
  • GOP politician cheats (anyone surprised?)
  • GOP politician’s pals hide it *unknowingly of course!!*(wink)
  • People committed to transparency bring it to light (imagine that)
  • GOP politician apologizes to his wealthy pals (privately so we don’t hear them saying naughty things to him about making them look like fools)
  • GOP politician gives the pubic the finger. Peons don’t deserve an apology.
  • Wealthy pal clutches pearls and vows that justice will be done (more winking/nodding)
  • GOP politician’s campaign is gutted
  • Can you guess what this last bullet is? Yup, that’s right, the new contribution rules make all of this irrelevant and buttloads of money pour into McInnis’ campaign at the last moment.
  • Undocumented of course.

Just like some people we know in Longmont.

They had folks to help cover it up too.
