McCain, Collins & Murkowski Join Dems To Kill Skinny Repeal Of Obamacare Comments (0)

John_McCain_official_photo_portrait-cropped-background_editSen. John McCain, who many liberals were cursing for returning from brain surgery just in time to vote to allow debate on an Obamacare repeal, had a surprise for his GOP masters at this morning's vote on a so-called skinny repeal.

The self-styled maverick from Arizona hasn't done anything too mavericky in years, but his shocking no vote on skinny repeal certainly qualifies ...

Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), a longtime senator and the Republican nominee for president in 2008, has been diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor.

He and his family are exploring treatment options.

Just this week, a vote on the eventually DOA repeal and replacement of Obamacare was stalled while John McCain had a blood clot removed from above his left eye.

Also worth noting is Sen. McCain's confused-seeming performance of late, which now feels like an ominous sign of something more wrong than simple sleeplessness.

Well wishes have poured in from all sides of the political spectrum.

Not a fan, but Trump's rise has definitely put that into perspective, and I wish him well.

Breaking: What Fake News Is, Isn't — Confusing The Definition Is HOW DICTATORS GET STARTED Comments (0)

The term fake news was coined to mean, literally, false information intentionally created and passed off as real information. The intent of fake news is to deceive.

Factually incorrect information that was presented as news in good faith but is corrected is not fake news, not unless it is intentionally left uncorrected.

Factual news that is perhaps focused on at the expense of other news is not fake news, even if the act of curating could be called manipulative.

Factual news that is unpleasant to some factions is not fake news.

Calling all of the media fake news is fake news.

There are now several incidents of Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer and Donald Trump himself, at this rally in Florida Saturday ...

... referring to terrorist incidents that NEVER HAPPENED. Conway infamously referenced Bowling Green, Spicer allegedly confused Orlando with Atlanta, and now Trump has referred to a non-existent terrorist incident in Sweden on Friday when no event of any kind occurred.

This is a pattern, not a series of mistakes.

These grifters are gaslighting America. The rest of the world knows it's fake news, but a good % of the American public is saluting the cardboard cut-out:

I honestly do not believe there is hope for America after Trump's ascendance to the throne. He is chipping away at the country's already shaky trust in the media, and I do not believe that is something that can be recovered. His goons will believe anything. I believe he is highly beatable in four years, but not sure he'll last, and yet I don't think it matters — he has already destroyed any concept of the office as anything good, noble and decent, and will have utterly destroyed too many people's faith in what's real and what's fake.

For the record: He's fake. Take me to the camps first.

Trump's Lackeys Take Over National Security Council, Ivanka's So Purdy + Kushner's Grandma On Rejecting Refugees Comments (0)

Not-My-President Trump has dropped the Joint Chiefs from our National Security Council, replacing them with his malevolent yes-men Steve Bannon — the white nationalist who was making millions off of fake news before it was chic — and his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Even right-wing tool John McCain recognizes that this is a radical departure.

This is not scare-mongering. This is terrifying. These people are utterly unprepared to lead and are ideologues, and they are filled with hubris if they think they know better than security and military experts.

They're hijacking our system, and are now talking about asking foreign travelers to supply personal info about their social media accounts and their cell numbers. They presided over the Muslim ban, which led to green card holders being illegally detained — and which spurred some agents to openly defy court orders that found parts of Trump's order to be potentially illegal.

And at the height of this tumult, Ivanka Trump — who I am calling Marie Antoi-NYET — takes time out to pose for a me-so-pretty selfie with hubby Kushner, a Jew who seems intent on helping to nudge the U.S. into its own version of, perversely, Nazism.

Want to gag on irony? Watch Kushner's own grandma talk about the dangers of ignoring the plight of (Jewish) refugees. Bet she never could have guessed her own grandson would be spearheading the same damn thing:

Mary Tyler Moore, whose showbiz career began as Happy the Hotpoint Elf in the early '50s and went on to help define quality entertainment on TV in the '60s and '70s, has died of complications from pneumonia. She had just turned 80 last month.

Earlier, TMZ had broken the news that Moore was on her deathbed at a Connecticut hospital.

Moore's death was confirmed in a statement to Extra:

Today, beloved icon, Mary Tyler Moore, passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine. A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile.

Moore's biggest early break came mostly off-screen, playing sultry Sam on Richard Diamond, Private Detective (1957—1960), a role she held in 1959, and which required only her killer legs and suggestive voice — she was never seen.

Along with many early-TV guest spots, Moore moved on to the role of Laura Petrie on the Kedslaurapetrie classic The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961—1966). Embodying pluck, a fresh face on traditional femininity and comic chops that kept up with veterans like Van Dyke, Morey Amsterdam and Rose Marie, Moore became America's sweetheart, and made bank, allowing her to move forward in the future as a woman calling the shots.

Though hard to believe comparing the style and subject matter of the two shows, it was only four years later that her The Mary Tyler Moore Show aka Mary Tyler Moore debuted.
