Trump: Madman On The Prowl - More Fact Checks From Daniel Dale - Trump Attacks Governor Whitmer - WHITE NOISE From the Atlantic -Trump's Denialism - Latest on COVID In The USA & It Ain't Pretty - Old Hippie Music


My knee completely popped and went out, so I've been down for the last few days. Luckily, Mike is cooking tonight. Up in San Diego (at least in the South Bay area) we noticed we were the only ones with "Ridin with Biden" bumper stickers and our pins on.; in fact no where to be seen were Trump bumper stickers.  It's eerie not seeing any campaigning happening...are people terrified  ?  Maybe.

 November the third seems like an eternity away yet it is so close.  Catching some of the news when I could limp to the living room, I did watch a portion of one of Trump's rallies, and it made me furious.  This was in Florida for the elderly folks.  So, there are all these little old people (older than me) shoulder to shoulder in a crowd, no social distancing , no masks. I could forgive them for cheering Trump on (most likely dementia -  thinking that Trump would transport them back to the days of Ronnie Reagan, their only hero) but I can never forgive Trump for deliberately not protecting them from harm, illness and in many cases, death.  What a fuckin bastard. 

 So he is on one hell of a lying rampage ; I'll be back with that, more fact checkins', Amy has been seated (OMG), another black man (Walter Wallace) shot in Philly by the Police (no PERT Squad obviously dumb shits) with demonstrations the last two nights, oh and Trump's continual repugnant attacks on Governor Whitmer.  Oh, and I ordered the Raccoon book from Australia !

Going to have dinner, finish watching "Better Call Saul" and try to soak my knee so I'll be back later tonight.


 I did everything except soak my knee.  Let's start off with the fact-checks:

Trump Lashes Out at Whitmer as Crowd Reprises 'Lock Her Up' Chant

"One week after the 2016 presidential election, white nationalists gathered in Washington, D.C., to celebrate. “Hail Trump! Hail our people!” the far-right leader Richard Spencer said from the podium to cheers and Nazi salutes. The Atlantic’s cameras captured exclusive footage of this moment, and the clip was shared widely, on news networks and social-media platforms around the world.

That was just the beginning of the story.

White Noise, The Atlantic’s first feature documentary, is the result of a four-year commitment to investigating and exposing the roots of rising white nationalism in the U.S. and abroad. The magazine has covered race in America for the better part of two centuries. White Noise brings The Atlantic’s long tradition of reporting on justice and equality, and the rigor of long-form magazine reporting, to the big screen through immersive, cinematic storytelling.

The result is a deeply reported journey through the underbelly of the alt-right, bringing viewers an unfiltered, clear-eyed look at a powerful extremist movement. The past four years have shown that even as the alt-right fractures and reinvents itself, the ideas it has unleashed have succeeded in infiltrating mainstream political discourse and shaping the direction of America. White Noise is essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand this urgent reality."
