Some day premium members might get a chance to hear what David Waldman says during those 10 minutes or so when his computer crashes at the very beginning of a KITM. The rest of us can only guess.

Greg Dworkin, with his pals Spinner and Paddlefoot, discuss “cargo cults”. (Honestly, what’s up with that font style?) Cargo cults confused correlation with causation, which is always easy to do. Substance needs to precede results. Now, how to get the folks that just discovered healthcare for all would be great to trust those that knew that all along...

Donald’s shaky base gets shakier. There is less real support in those polls Trump followers think are fake—leaving room for more fake support! Trump voters don’t give a damn about others. Some say Donald Trump doesn’t really care about people. Or that he’s “senselessly” cruel. But no, he actually gets off on it. A lot.

So, let’s talk about nuclear war. Who lives in Guam, anyway? Enveloping fire and fury that this world has never seen before won’t bring more economic frustration to the rust belt, will it? Bad news like this is why twice a day Donald Trump gets a folder of happy news delivered to him, to confirm his support and power before he “gets in a mood”.

Quasi–White House adviser, actual Nazi Sebastian Gorka figures the Minnesota mosque attack was a “false flag” by the left. Meanwhile, the JCC bomb-threat suspect was probably paid to do it, according to the FBI.

Speaking of the FBI, they came knocking at Paul Manafort’s door “predawn”, which is never good.
