Lyrics:

On certain nights
the ringing in my ears
louder than the rustle of leaves

along the path
but who am I to scare
and who are you to follow out here?

deep in the mile I will walk for you
deep in the lines of our summer
I see the clouds and they seem so young
what wicked mind did set their trails
were they the ones that got away?

the longest train
that I ever saw
but what is in a ticket to move?

could beauty lie
in my place of fear
run and the horizon will too

deep in the mile I will walk for you
deep in the lines of our summer
I see the clouds and they seem so young
what wicked mind did set their trail
were they the ones that got away?

you might as well be on my shoulders, I suppose
I can pretend I do not see you, and so it goes
we can talk about just where the clouds are from

Bannon Latest Casualty of White House Circular Firing Squad

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 10:36:32 PDT

Everybody saw this coming, and today Stephen Bannon is the latest Trump crony to get tossed under a very crowded bus.

Let's face it, though: Bannon isn't the problem. He was just someone Trump used to get into the White House, and this will change nothing about what Trump is doing.

But it will be amusing to watch the right wing lose its marbles (if they still have any to lose).

Photo of the Day: GOP Rep. Rohrabacher Poses With Holocaust Denier Chuck C. Johnson at Assange Meeting

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 11:23:16 PDT

Here we see Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher posing on the steps of the Ecuadoran embassy in London with Holocaust-denying white supremacist Chuck C. Johnson (who is NOT ME), as they prepare to meet with Julian Assange. Johnson, of course, is making that hand sign that white supremacists love to pretend has nothing to do with white supremacism. This is one of the more disgraceful things I've seen a Republican do this year, in a year when the GOP has thoroughly disgraced itself on so many levels. Here are some other photos of Johnson, for comparison. Chuck C. Johnson with racist killer of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman White supremacists Richard B. Spencer (L) and Chuck C. Johnson at the GOP convention Chuck C. Johnson with Tila Tequila at a meeting of white supremacists Chuck C. Johnson with Dutch anti-Muslim fanatic Geert Wilders Chuck C.

GOP Rep. Dana Rohrabacher Collaborates With Holocaust-Denying White Supremacist to Meet With Julian Assange

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 18:33:38 PDT

The Daily Caller reports today that Rage Furby Chuck C. Johnson set up a meeting between Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and Julian Assange.

Republican California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher met with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange Wednesday at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, The Daily Caller has learned.

Charles Johnson, a conservative journalist, told TheDC that he arranged the meeting for Assange because the WikiLeaks chief wants to strike a deal with the U.S. so he can stop living in asylum.

Rohrabacher’s spokesman Ken Grubbs told TheDC, “I can confirm that the meeting happened” and said that Johnson was in the meeting.

Chuck C. Johnson is a notorious white supremacist who recently came out as a Holocaust denier in an "Ask Me Anything" session on Reddit, in a far right racist group that has now been deleted. But we saved Chuck's comment:

justacolyte:
what are your thoughts on the Holocaust, WW2, and the JQ in general?

ChuckCJohnson:
I do not and never have believed the six million figure. I think the Red Cross numbers of 250,000 dead in the camps from typhus are more realistic. I think the Allied bombing of Germany was a ware crime. I agree with David Cole about Auschwitz and the gas chambers not being real. I read the German War (highly recommend), Bloodlands, Mein Kampf, and all of David Irving. I'm more or less of the view that the war was an outgrowth of the efforts of communism to spread itself throughout the world. I also believe that the fears of German extermination were not misplaced, especially in light of the Ukrainian famine. But I support Israel as a Jewish state and Zionism as a concept. I'm pro-ethno state, generally. I understand why and how Hitler rose to power but think too much of our focus on World War II is spent trying to understand Hitler and not enough is spent trying to understand Weimar. Mecius Moldbug, aka Curtis Yarvin, is right. America is a communist country.

UPDATE at 8/16/17 7:25:03 pm by Charles Johnson

Here's an archived copy of Johnson's Holocaust-denying comment, for the record.

I thought Donald Trump couldn't shock me any more, but that press conference yesterday was a real jaw-dropper. Folks, we have a president who openly supports and makes excuses for neo-Nazis. It's been obvious for a long time, of course, but yesterday he dropped the mask and made it undeniable.

Stephen digs into President Trump's off-script/off-the-rocker press conference in which he contradicted statements given on Monday condemning hate groups.

Video: Trump's Absolutely Horrific Press Conference on #Charlottesville

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 14:09:26 PDT

I'm at a loss for words to describe the awfulness of this press conference today by Donald Trump. He is literally defending the neo-Nazis who marched and rioted in Charlottesville. Watch for yourself if you can stand it.

Even journalists who usually try to remain detached and impartial on Twitter are reacting with horror to this one.

A defiant President Trump laid some of the blame for the violence in Charlottesville with alt-left groups along with white nationalist groups as he defended the statements he made in the wake of the violence.

UPDATE at 8/15/17 2:17:27 pm by Charles Johnson

Trump's statements didn't horrify everyone, though.

Trump Grudgingly Condemns Neo-Nazi Violence in #Charlottesville, Then Attacks Merck CEO for Criticizing Him

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 11:02:00 PDT

After three days of equivocating, wishy-washy statements about the white supremacist terror attack in Charlottesville, the Trump-thing's advisers finally pushed him into a statement condemning neo-Nazis and white supremacists, obviously written by someone else.

If I sound unimpressed, well... do you blame me? Donald Trump waited long enough for the neo-Nazi crowd that helped elect him to feel he still supported them, and they'll now see this statement as what it was -- a late, pro forma expression of "condemnation" he doesn't truly feel, grudgingly given under protest.

The damage is already done, and this doesn't fix it.

Meanwhile, Trump showed his true nature once again when the black CEO of Merck resigned from Trump's manufacturing council with a strong statement denouncing our so-called president's ugly response to the Charlottesville attack.

Minutes later, Trump viciously attacked Kenneth Frazier by name on Twitter; demonstrating how sincere Trump's statement really was.

Attorney for Man Falsely Identified as #Charlottesville Attacker Says He'll Go After Right Wing Websites

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 20:52:15 PDT

Earlier today we published an article on the right wing bloggers (Jim Hoft and Chuck C. Johnson, who is NOT ME) who recklessly and dishonestly named the wrong person as the suspect in the Charlottesville car attack on anti-Nazi protesters. Tonight we can report that the man they framed has legal counsel -- and his lawyer is planning to go after these website owners with "the full power of the law." Andrew Sommerman, a Dallas, Texas based attorney representing the man and his family, said in an interview Sunday night that they believe the Michigan man was targeted because his father owned the Dodge Challenger years ago before legally selling the vehicle. The son drove the father's car before the sale, according to Sommerman. Alternative conservative online commentators appeared to single the Michigan man out because of the perception he may have had something in common with the anti-racism protesters injured on Saturday. The man's lawyer said he's still investigating. "There was a clear misidentification," Sommerman said. "The motivation behind it, I don't quite understand yet." The attorney who specializes in defamation cases said he planned to use the full power of the law against those who falsely claimed that his clients had anything to do with the fatal crash. "I don't think it's careless," he said. "I think it was their intent to try to muddle" the truth of what happened in Charlottesville. Mr. Sommerman is quite correct; this was a very deliberate tactic often used by these bloggers. They rush to blame "leftists" whenever an attack like this takes place, knowing that their cooked up false stories will immediately spread through social media and poison the well of public discourse. Both Jim Hoft and Chuck C. Johnson are notorious for this. And Hoft and Johnson are named specifically in this article at the Detroit Free Press: The website GotNews​.com posted a story that "using internet sleuthing," it reposted "evidence" about the Michigan man. But later, the site updated the post to say that "GotNews has retracted the article. GotNews regrets the error and apologizes" to the man and his family. Another site, the Gateway Pundit, reprinted a tweet that named the Michigan man as the suspected driver. "This is just a report….. But look at the tweet below," Gateway's Jim Hoft wrote at 4:21 p.m. Saturday, naming the Michigan man in the headline. But now that post has been removed from the Gateway website. The Free Press found a cached version of the posting online. Related: James Fields Charged With Murder in #Charlottesville Terrorism; Right Wing Bloggers Identified Wrong Person[...]

James Fields Charged With Murder in #Charlottesville Terrorism; Right Wing Bloggers Identified Wrong Person

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 11:56:49 PDT

In Charlottesville, Virginia, James Alex Fields, Jr. has been arrested and charged with murder after allegedly driving at full speed into a crowd of counter-protesters at yesterday's neo-Nazi rally. Earlier in the day, Fields was photographed numerous times with the Nazi crowd, holding one of their absurd shields emblazoned with fascist symbols. His Facebook page (now removed) shows that he was infatuated with Nazism -- and with Donald Trump. Clearly and simply, this was a deliberate terrorist attack, injuring many and claiming the life of 32-year old Heather Heyer. But as we've observed many, many times before, right wing bloggers immediately began pushing out invented stories that the perpetrator was actually a leftist. For example, the Stupidest Man on the Internet, Jim Hoft, who immediately seized on a random tweet and named someone who had nothing to do with the attack: White supremacist Rage Furby Chuck C. Johnson also immediately jumped out there and smeared the same unrelated person: Needless to say, this has now become gospel truth among large segments of the right, and you can easily find them repeating it endlessly on Twitter and Facebook -- even though Hoft and Johnson have both deleted their libelous false posts by now. And this is why these dishonest bloggers do it: because they know their lies will instantly spread throughout the right wing echo chamber and become alternative facts, impervious to rebuttal. Meanwhile, Donald Trump's favorite conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones, is already screaming that the "riots" in Charlottesville were "staged" in order to "bring in martial law" and ban "conservative gatherings." It's very revealing that Jones considers an outright neo-Nazi rally to be a "conservative gathering." Also see: What We Know About James Alex Fields, Driver Charged in Charlottesville Killing[...]

Some Much-Needed Cuteness: Aimee Mann, "Goose Snow Cone"

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 17:02:26 PDT

Here's a break from the horrific news out of Virginia, and Donald Trump's equally horrific refusal to condemn the neo-Nazis responsible -- a cute and touching video for a great song from Aimee Mann's latest album.

From Aimee's Facebook page regarding the video: “I wrote “Goose Snow Cone” when I was on tour in Ireland, on a cold and snowy day. I was feeling very homesick when I saw a picture on Instagram of a cat I know named Goose. Her fluffy white face was looking up at the camera in a very plaintive way, like a little snowball, and I started singing a little song about her that turned into a song about loneliness. I intended to change the lyrics but could never find a phrase to replace the one I started with. When it came time to make a video, I knew the original Goose had to be in it. Her owners are my friends Rob and Puloma who coincidentally produce and direct videos. One of my cats had recently gone through a long illness and I was thinking about that when I came up with the idea for the video, and I knew Puloma had to star in it, as she has a very lovely and expressive face. The vet in the video is my actual vet and he’s a great guy. It was not easy wrangling Goose but the magic of editing makes it all work!”
