Sorry, but that picture is irresistible. Here is Kirstjen Nielsen, and person who is disappointed that you took the last donut.

David Frum, the Iraq War cheerleader, invites Ms.Kirsten Nielsen, the Wilhelm Frick of the Torquemada Trump Administration, to his Republican rehabilitation festival should come as no surprise. Don’t worry about Ms Nielsen, Jeff Zucker’s CNN will hire her. Since his death, Roger Ailes has passed the torch for destroying the country through journalism to Zucker.

Nielsen has a face like an old shrew, a demonic, hard-hearted monster, which she truly is.

Here’s what’s so wonderful about her face. She is physically a pretty women, could even have been beautiful if the demon inside her mind did not insist on taking over her features— most notably those flinty eyes—and showing us the true Nazi glare of her soul. It’s reassuring to know that the truth will out no matter how yupped-up she is.

Godless—is CNN watched? I’m serious, I don’t know. I’ve never watched it nor seen the point. I’m ashamed to admit that I followed Madcow until she lied about something I can’t even remember now but it was a sanctimony too far. Even for me, an old Lez who was so proud of her. I quit corporate news and switched to RT and FSTV and that other one, :thinking:. I get much more info on those.

She. Is. A. Nazi. Commandant. Even tho I know the c-word, I can’t even use it on her. I know no words in English or any other language that fit her. There’ve been plenty of deplorable female monsters…Condi…Albright…Conway…Phuckabee…Killary…that Davis …no, both Davises… but somehow, Nielsen is at the top of the list.

Lest we forget - “Condi” Rice.

Jj, your comments resonate with me. I thought Maddow was pretty damn sharp and is skilled at connecting dots. But man! She sold out big time. Her nasty attitude when she spoke of and to Bernie made me sick. Then she topped that with her relentless crap on Russia as tho America wears a huge halo and wings. Barfo.

As for Nielsen, you can see my post to David. I would not say she is or could be a pretty woman. I might allow some of her features are ones some people consider pretty. But her righteous and conscience-less rot seeps thru all pores at every moment. I can’t wish an evil bad enough to befall her.

Yeah, a real doozy, right?

Oh yes - and what a surprise that she and her coterie during the Bush “administration” remain publicly silent while their proxy The Don continues to accomplish their Mission(s). Not to mention what they got away with.

it’s all pretty disheartening and infuriating, isn’t it? ok, and scary, too.

I wonder that myself. When you look at the viewing numbers of the TV so-called-news programs, they are a tiny wedge of the population that I suspect are older and whiter than the general population. The media obsession with what happens on the TV programs may be because the owners on the non-TV media are also older and whiter so they think it is important. My favorite news programs are Loud-and-Clear and By Any Means Necessary on Sputnik radio/podcast and Chapo Trap House. TV is mental fentanyl not meant to be taken seriously. [I’m older and whiter, sixties, but was hatched into a family with a communist grandfather and socialist single mother.]

And yet…the public is supposed (if not required) to take the mentality behind these deeds and words seriously.

Chap, the public, generally speaking, is not we on forums like CD. The public is terribly brainwashed by all the MS media—tv, radio, movies, newspapers, magazines—and social media. I’m not excusing them… we all have personal responsibility to inform ourselves to the best of our ability, which IMO, is impeded by the plethora of confusing sh** out there. Compound that with (my soapbox) schools not educating with factual history & science, much less research and critical-thinking skills…and you get Dump and a public who can’t tell pablum from Mom’s apple pie.

A huge smile and high five to you!!! I love your posts!

How does one access these alternative news sources you list?

Ooo, lucky you. I too am old and white, but in the Sixties, we tried to redeem ourselves and our country and we almost made it. As Noam the Great says, we tried to civilize the nation. It’s the Yuppies who need to be jailed, enmass, for their greedy venality! One can always dream, my brother.

Yes, you are right Toni. I think just being her is an evil visited on her, but if course it isn’t commensurate with her crimes. The wail of the babies and kids at the border still haunts me. And she gets feted by the Atlantic. Maybe we should visit an evil on the Atlantic. Hmmmm…

(Oops, I see a mistake in my post to you: I meant self-righteous.)

What’s with The Atlantic? Why are they doing this stuff?

Yeah, the atrocities perpetrated on the kids and their families—-hopefully some international body grows a pair and comes after every Nazi in this administration, starting with Miller, Dump, ICE, and CBP.

I don’t see any mistake in the post here in my mailbox, and I agree with you 100%. And by the way, where the hell is Amnesty on this. They raise a lot of $$$$ attacking “foreign” horrors, but our horrors they are silent on. I guess it’s going to have to be us goils–Code Pink and The Squad!
