Let’s usher in the inauguration of President Pinkerton. Scranton Scab Joe strike busted the rail unions with an executive order today. CNN states that he averted a strike. That is true. The problem however is that the union has been working without contract for 3 years which means that they’re pay and benefits advances are stalled out. Meanwhile the railway industry has been reporting record wage theft (profits) over this same time period. So the empire politician that Biden is has intervened on behalf of the corporate welfare state to further strip us of our ability to resist. Yet again, Biden has proven that he was grown in the same lab as Reagan. Why in the fuck are we not speaking out louder and more frequently? Amerikkka is quite exceptional as it’s managed to pack millenia of evil into only a few hundred years. How on earth are we still allowing these delusional men who believe that systemic abuse and racism are sacred values?

Break in! Break in! This is not another analysis or news story. This is a muthafuckin call to action! This is to everyone left of center. The concerned democrats, the progressives, the anarchists, the communists and every other group that fights the right. The vast majority of us side with democratic politicians and news as we’re under the impression that they represent the values that make up the core of our being. The Biden administration spends every damn day of the week proving that they don’t give a fuck about us in real time! This is a major problem considering the fact that we vote them in and pay them to work for us. We need to stop putting up with this. It should be NO JUSTICE NO PEACE for every single politician that consistently goes out of their way to work against the reasons we put them in office. The right moved with its base. Sure the result is monstrous and frightening, but why hasn’t the DNC moved with any portion of its base outside of 1%ers? We’re in an abusive relationship with our representatives. They call women marching for the right to health care “out of step liberal activists.” That’s right Sistas, your right to complete health care os considered radical by the White House. The fact that Biden just thumbs his ass while the school year has become hunting season where children exist in fear of who got their license from the NRA to hunt with no bag limit. And Witch Queen Pelosi’s cracka ass having the disdain to appropriate Kente cloth then declare DEFUND THE POLICE a dead issue. Nah friends. They got us fucked up. It’s now time to recognize and weaponize our power. We need to demand of the Democratic Party REFORM OR EXTINCTION! The fact of the matter is that our current stance on Biden is ranging from not wanting him to run up though wanting to throw bricks at the old racist and drop out of society. This is a toxic situation that has long past its sustainability. Please pass this on and make the upcoming season actually matter to us and quit living in social squalor.

This was from White House Communications director Kate Bedingfield on response to activists essentially shit canning Biden over his speech on Friday. I’ll have a link to my analysis of that shit fire at the bottom of this. “Joe Biden’s goal in responding to Dobbs is not to satisfy some activists who’ve been consistently out of step with the mainstream of the Democratic Party. It’s to deliver help to women who are in danger and assemble a broad-based coalition to defend a woman’s right to choose now, just as he assembled such a coalition to win the 2020 campaign.” “The President has been showing his deep outrage as an American and executing his bold plan- which is the product of months of hard work- ever since the decision was his own.” Wow, y’all got us fucked up! Every single activist platform is what these candidates run on. This isn’t activism, this is fuckng accountability. Women protesting because Biden thumbed his asshole doing fuck all “out of step” with that party. Yet again, why the hell are any of us supporting the DNC. Do we all need therapy to learn about toxic patterns? Remember, you don’t owe abusers anything! And these mainstreamers that treat all us activists the ways shot parents treat “mistake” children which males them the exact same as abuse most of us survived through. I still don’t see where Biden is expressing outrage. The last time Biden had any fight was when he was campaigning for segregationists. This is why the right is winning. They moved in the direction of their base and have straight up coddled their most activist constituents. Absolutely, the policies hurt everyone. But the fact is that GOP constituents feel honesty representated by the monsters they’re voting for. So why is anyone on the left voting for people who clearly despise us?

For everyone who considers themselves any stripe of left, why are we still carrying water for the Democratic party? In the last 2 months they stood by doing fuck all as half our population lost they’re guarantee of complete and adequate health care. Their answer was to vote harder. Then after 2 weeks of criticism over that, they double the fuck down on that trash. I’m entirely for voting as it’s one of the many tools we need to employ to pull this country out of being a dystopian hellscape. But what are even voting for right now? Outside of the squad the rest of them are only getting elected to network with more owner donors. When any progressives call them on it or have ideas, they get slagged. When us voters speak up, we can treated with the same neglect and disdain that our abusive parents gave out like water at a marathon. Pelosi the witch queen who keeps coming outta her children’s bone strewn cave to say that #defundthepolice is a dead slogan. Um no, the elected representative either works for a our tax dollars or they are a parasite. The people who are represented by these corporate mainliners are the exact same coming in and gentrifying all the most desirable parts of my home state. Remember, gentrification is economic eugenics as it prices the poor out of areas. This means that these supposed representatives are at war with us and constantly working to re traumatize those who are most victimized by the Amerikkan scream. So why don’t we all walk away and either build up the Green Wedge or start something new? I’m not sure how we’d reform the DNC unless the neoliberal dinosaurs were to suddenly drop dead. So perhaps we should leave them to their David Duke retirement home where they can count money with the Republicans.

Biden Takes Action? The majority of headlines are lauding Biden in a heroic manner for actions he took today. Well that’s interesting. Biden begins his speech with a repetitive and meandering monolog about adding more jobs than any president in history and I mildly disassociated during that part. He did say that his economic plan is working. Considering the recent stat that homelessness rises by 9% for every 100 dollar rent increase and the plan sounds like he plagiarized Trump. CNN described the speech as fiery and sometimes angry… Joe sounds like an NPR DJ on heroine. This Executive Order he signed Directs the HHS to form a plan. Why the fuck didn’t they have a plan 2 months ago when it was basically advertised that this was gonna happen!?! As the speech progress Biden asks for 2 more senators then turns this hollow shit show into a campaign speech. Honestly, the blue wave smells like piss. Biden goes onto feign some anger abort the 10 year old girl who has to travel to another state to receive essential health care. Why wasn’t any action taken before of the lives of women and girls is so important? This “action” is so goddamned toothless that it’s more offensive than doing nothing especially after the fact. Well, Kamala the “top cop” is all about showing up too late to prevent crime but just in time to re-victimize. This will continue to be our future so long as we elect parasitic hellscapers and allow the media to apologize for them.

So we’ve had Biden as president for a year and he felt a need for a 3 hour grandstand to celebrate. Celebrate what? He’s achieved nothing. All he had to fuckin do was be better than Trump and this administration couldn’t achieve that. While Harris was yelling at a black man for insinuating that Manchin is the actual shot caller, Biden and Manchin him were hangin out likely talking about how the coal baron is gonna tank everything even mildly progressive that hits the floor. We’re practically rebooting the cold war and our tough actions at sanctions and proxy wars. Well, the last time we had a proxy war with Russia in another country 9/11 happened 30 something years later. Also, sanctions don’t really work in Russia, they’re all used to living with nothing or less. All the Joey show did was to move the doomsday clock ahead by 2 hours. This limp nothing of an administration has all but guaranteed that the most psychotic ends of the right are gonna take power in November. More and more of the country is interested in progressive policies as we’ve been watching America collapse in real time under the weight of the outdated ways that didn’t really work to begin with.

From 1979 to 2021 (Carter to Biden), American hands have been soaking in enough gallons of Afghan blood to drown a nation. Still the president sleeps well on his Boll and Branch sheets.

An attack toppled buildings and we were sold lies of hating freedom when the reality is that an abused indigenous population struck back. Still the president sleeps well on his Boll and Branch sheets.

An entire generation has been irreparably damaged by a convoluted illegal war that we still have no clear answer on why we were there. Still the president sleeps well on his Boll and Branch sheets.

46 years later, a flawed war ends worse than Vietnam as we’re chased from the nation we occupied by the demons we created. Still the president sleeps well on his Boll and Branch sheets.

The nation is presently calling for and defending imperialism and occupation as we watch is fail in real time. Still the president sleeps well on his Boll and Branch sheets.

So the Biden administration is of course the same shit as Trump. We’re illegally occupying Iraq, bombing Syria just because, continuing the strange cold war with China and hoarding vaccines. None of this is surprising. In fact I spent the last election season saying that Biden was no different. It’s not that I’m that greatly intelligent, it was just that obvious. We’re still putting kids in cages and feeding America’s kink for mass incarceration. I know, some are crying about how the “left” is tearing itself apart. No, we’re not! A faction of us is just sick if the bullshit. A large portion of it began under Obama who kept getting a pass from the DNC who got up in arms when the GOP simply modeled the same behavior during Trump. Mainstream democrats don’t give a single fuck about freedom or rights. They only want their fascism to be the dominant paradigm. To be clear, there is 100% no difference between the 2 major parties and any support of them is either naive of problematic. This is gonna be a long 4 years.

I’m fuckin concerned that we may not be rid of Trump come January. Between his comments overall, the sudden demand to increase stimulus payments and that his latest pardons include 4 blackwater mercs who were responsible for the nisour square massacre. Furthermore he’s close friends with the founder of Blackwater which is just typical of a man who clearly wants to be a South American style dictator. So he’s in essence trying to buy the people’s loyalty and has shorn up his relationship with a private military. And the clear evidence the Trump is acting as though he does want a government shutdown which would mean there’s no money to pay those that would do something about him not being willing to vacate office. Not sure it’s a conspiracy theory when Trump has said multiple times that he’s not leaving office, has been working tirelessly to overturn the election while flaunting his relationship with white supremacist groups and mercenaries. While Biden is certainly no prize or victory, I at least want El Trumpe to fuckin leave. Anyone else tired of living in unprecedented times?
