  1. Democrats secure breakthrough with Kyrsten Sinema on climate bill | US news | The Guardian

    Senate Democratic leaders say they have reached an agreement on the party’s major climate and economic bill with Kyrsten Sinema – the centrist Democrat whose opposition remained a major hurdle to passing the most ambitious US climate legislation yet.
    […]
    Schumer has said he hopes the Senate can begin voting on the bill – known as the Inflation Reduction Act – on Saturday. Passage by the House, which Democrats control narrowly, could come next week.
    Final congressional approval of the election-year measure would be a marquee achievement for Joe Biden and his party, notching an accomplishment they could tout to voters as November approaches.

  2. IMO, Manchin & Synema have a good cop/bad cop deal.   He said he was on board, knowing exactly what she would do.  It looks like a put up job. 

  3. Midterms is the only cure.

    Ok, “are”.

    No, “is”.

    COULD be “are” I guess.

    Dick Cheney calls Trump “coward” in campaign ad for Liz Cheney (axios.com)

    “In our nation’s 246 year history, there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump,” Dick Cheney said in the ad.
    “He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him. He is a coward,” Cheney continued.
    “A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters. He lost his election and he lost big. I know it, he knows it, and deep down, I think most Republicans know it.”
    “Liz is fearless. … There is nothing more important she will ever do than lead the effort to make sure Donald Trump is never again near the Oval Office and she will succeed,” Cheney said, adding that he proudly voted for his daughter.

    yes we Kan—sas

    or poster with a suitable caption along the lines of *Kant’s “we all have the duty to act morally”

    See the source image

    *according to gr14philophy:

    Immanuel Kant was a Philosopher who lived quite a long time ago (1724-1804 to be exact) and he basically argued that we all have a duty to act morally. This means, we should all try to do the right thing at all times – because it is the right thing to do.

  6. https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/05/politics/victoria-spartz-ukraine-republican-reaction/index.html

    “In the nearly six months since the war began, Spartz has publicly criticized the Ukraine government, peddled corruption allegations against the Ukrainian government and some of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s top aides, and spurred complaints from her colleagues that she is mirroring pro-Russia talking points.”

    It sure sounds like Pootin has a turd on the inside. Mole-y, mole-y, mole-y!

    And then there is my favorite philosopher David Hume

    Attention to Hume’s philosophical works grew after the German philosopher Immanuel Kant, in hisProlegomena to Any Future Metaphysics(1783), credited Hume with awakening him from his “dogmatic slumber.”

    Hume also heavily influenced his best friend, Adam Smith.  The end result of all this is that the so called “capitalists” conveniently forget that Capitalism without ethics carries the seeds of its own destruction or in other words:  Greed IS NOT good.

     

  8. Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney said if the Justice Department does not prosecute former President Donald Trump for his role in the insurrection at the US Capitol and “the facts and the evidence are there,” the decision could call into question whether the United States can “call ourselves a nation of laws.” In an interview with CNN’s Kasie Hunt, Cheney — the GOP vice chair of the House select committee investigating the events surrounding the January 6, 2021, insurrection — said Trump is “guilty of the most serious dereliction of duty of any president in our nation’s history” and pointed to a judge who’s said he likely committed crimes. She said the House committee is “going to continue to follow the facts. I think Department of Justice will do that. But they have to make decisions about prosecution.”

  9. Why is Sinema so concerned with protecting hedge fund managers to a degree she’s willing to risk her party’s agenda?

  11. France – 
     
    Remember  kids France makes electrons with Nuclear power , and you got to have river water to cool them bad boys. 

    The state energy company EDF has had to reduce output at some nuclear power plants, as river temperatures are too high to provide sufficient cooling, AFP news agency reports.

  12. Not too long ago a key denier talking point was that changing our ways would be too costly and wreck our economy . 
    Now all the grapes in Europe  have  turned to rasins on the vine , and not  wine in the barrel. 
    Mean while  the guys that paid for that horse shit PR idea are richer than ever. 
     
    Their time is coming , a reckoning is coming .

  14. Watching CPAC in Dallas, a speaker cheered saying pro-life women are “beautiful, they’re fit, take care of themselves versus  pro-choice liberal women look pasty like they’ve never gone out for an ounce of sunshine, don’t eat meat, look very unhealthy” 

  15. I want to  thank an  82 year old for flying  across  the Pacific to twist the nose of the dragon .
