about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.
Click here for an article by David Dayen at the American Prospect magazine explaining how President Biden has used the executive branch to push all the government agencies to actually enforce the existing laws against monopolistic practices and incentivizing economic sectors to become more competitive -- instead of oligarchical fiefdoms.
Most Americans probably don't know about this backstory, because it gets short-shrifted by the corporate media -- which coincidentally has a vested interest in consolidation and monopolization of economic sectors. None of which actually benefits the public at large, as has been evident (again) over the last 40 years since Ronald Reagan inaugurated the modern mythology that glossed over the lessons learned in the past, in the aftermath of the early part of the 1900's.
But humans don't change. Without proper regulations and enforcement of laws, corruption creeps and power accumulates.
Here is one small example I myself did not even know:
Though the consequences of too few buyers in an economy (monopsony) had been the subject of numerous studies in recent years, presidential-level discussion of monopsony and monopoly in the same breath was novel.
The Justice Department centered worker harms in its biggest legal victory to date, a successful challenge to the merger between publishers Simon & Schuster and Penguin Random House. The deal would have narrowed major publishers in the U.S. from five to four, and the Antitrust Division argued that authors would suffer from fewer bidders and smaller advances for their work. The judge ruled in DOJ’s favor, saying that the deal would “substantially lessen competition to acquire the publishing rights to anticipated top-selling books.” For a judiciary that has focused primarily on consumers as defined by Bork in antitrust cases, it was a sea change and a model for the future.

Trump released deposition about his ancient rape case
This man is absolutely disgusting. He screams "I'll sue" to being confronted with the truth.
Such a weak pathetic "man".
But this is not a "man". A real man owns up to his bullshit and works towards improvement. A real man does not disrespect other people while acting like everything he does is acceptable. A real man does not treat others as playthings for his discretion. A real man respects women and does not rape them.
Period. Stop. End of story.

George Santos is a Brazilian stooge
Watch as all these Republicans with integrity stand up to the stooge. I am personally impressed.
Meanwhile while Bolsinaro took a vacation in Florida, the MaGA equivalent in Brazil stormed the capital.

What happens when ...
You eat 100 Tablespoons of butter in 10 days.
2,200 grams of Fat per day
1,170 grams of Saturated Fat per day.
Fats are good for you. Your brain is composed of 85% Fats. When you starve your body of Fats because you think fats are bad, your body actually contorts itself to figure out how to use the available fats in your diet to make your biology manage to function, because a low-fat diet is actually a starvation diet.
Processed fats (Canola Oil) are bad but that's because they are poly-unsaturated and rancid, which means that they easily degenerate into unhealthy toxic bi-products, and are inherently unstable. That's why Saturated fats are good for you.
Eating fats does not cause arteriosclerosis. Fat does not clog your arteries. Having Fats in the blood is not due to eating a lot of fats in your diet.

Yep - crime only matters before elections
Because - perhaps - the oligarchs that own the media want you to be afraid.

The Ukraine War
is real. And Beau made a poignant statement
"War is just an extension of foreign policy that failed" or something like that. Which is profound. When people can't compromise or respect each other, at some point they decide that the best option is to kill the other people who are not in their clan. Which is hard to swallow for non-aggressive peaceful folk, but that is the inevitable conclusion.

This was not about the National Archives
This is more than just the National Archives whining about Presidential records. If anything, it was the people at the National Archives who tipped off the FBI that enabled the discovery that Trump more than likely was giving classified information to foreign agents.
The Dailykos source is quoting and linking to the New York Times.
Previous court filings have confirmed the ex-president held classified records in storage areas at Mar-a-Lago, but the document unsealed on Friday showed dozens of files were found in Mr Trump's office.
Among the files allegedly recovered from that room during the unprecedented 8 August search were:
3 documents marked confidential
17 documents marked secret
7 documents marked top secret
43 empty folders with classified banners
28 empty folders labelled "Return to staff secretary/military aide"
More than 11,000 government documents in total were retrieved by the FBI from the Palm Beach estate, say investigators.

Reality check. This was in Mr. Trump's office at a Private Golf Club.
