Sen Bill Cassidy aka Doctor Death fails two oaths and Jimmy Kimmel torches conservatives

Conservative Senator Bill Cassidy (R-La.) who is a doctor violated his primary medical oath which is to do no harm and then fail his own coined term "The Jimmy Kimmel Test." Cassidy after hearing Kimmel make a public plea to Congress to provide health care to everyone even those who could not afford medical care. Kimmel was grateful that he had health insurance to cover his infant son who had a congenital heart condition. Kimmel was urging Congress to either fix Obamacare or provide insurance to everyone even the poor. Cassidy told Kimmel on his show that any plan he would support would do so.

Kimmel unfortunately trusted a conservative Republican. You see they view government assisted healthcare as socialism That comes from their god, Ronald Reagan. (My post with Reagan's audio on the issue.) So now Cassidy has proposed a new healthcare plan. It would repeal Obamacare. And it would slowly kill Medicaid. Place caps on how much insurance would pay for one patient. And get this it would allow states to opt out of mandating insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions. Since his plan would cause millions to lose coverage and likely lead to deaths. So, let's call Cassidy, "Doctor Death."

Here's Jimmy Kimmel on the Cassidy 's "healthcare" plan.



Cassidy then said he didn't lie to Kimmel and then indicated that Kimmel didn't understand healthcare. Bad mistake. Kimmel torches him. Thank you Jimmy Kimmel for fighting for Americans' healthcare. Here's Kimmel's response. And vote liberal Democrat if you want to live.

mother! review

mother! is the second movie this year to deal with the idea of creativity. The second was Alien: Covenant. Whereas that movie was more conventional science fiction. mother! is a film that answers the hypothetical question of what a movie made by Luis Bunuel, Salvador Dali and Stephen King would look like.

Mother (Jennifer Lawrence) and Him (Javier Bardem) are husband and wife. They have no children. Him is a poet. They live together in a large house somewhere in the country. One of the opening scenes of the film has Him placing a crystal on a mantle. The crystal was recovered from previous house which burned down inspires Him to write. However, Him is having a bit of writer's block. A doctor (Ed Harris) stops by and asks to stay. Later, doctor's wife (Michelle Pfeiffer) joins him. She lectures Mother that she should have a child. They are basically boarders from hell. Speaking of which, when the doctor breaks the crystal, all hell breaks loose. It doesn't happen all at once. But actions in the movie are murder, blood seeping in floors and walls, riots, cannibalism, a strange creature living in the toilet, and idolatry. You know the stuff in Disney movies.

You get no bad performances with this A list cast. Jennifer Lawrence suffers quite a bit in this movie. Physical and emotional. In keeping with the surreal nature of the movie, the insane events seem to be real to her. Javier Bardem initially seemed a little to intense for me but his performance makes sense as a man who needs the approval and worship of a crowd. As his career winds down, Ed Harris is making some excellent acting choices. His Man in Black in Westworld was more than evil he was complicated. In this film, he strikes me as a hypocrite. Michelle Pfeiffer's wife has a Lady Macbeth vibe happening here.

Director and writer Darren Aronofsky's camera follows Mother around with either over the shoulder, first person or cover shots. She is in virtually in every scene in the movie. The effect is that we feel her suffering. This film is certainly metaphorical and surreal. With all the gore and violence, it becomes quite intense. That's a problem for mother!. Aronofsky's film needed editing. Was there a need for all the murder, people getting shot and rioting? It got to a point where it slowed down the movie. Still, the film is fascinating. I spent the time trying to understand the multiple allegories crashing into each other.

mother! is a thought provoking, surreal and disturbing movie. Big studio Paramount should be praised for producing this piece of avant-garde art. The grade is B.

What?! Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was advocating building Middle East Nuclear Power plants with Russians while in the White House

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that former National Security Adviser Micheal Flynn was supporting the construction of nuclear power plants across the Middle East with Russians while he was working in the White House. (Wall Street Journal) Rachell Maddow covers the scheme in the video below at the 8:30 minute mark. Flynn did not disclose any contacts with foreign individuals as required by his security clearance. Maddow then goes over all the things that Flynn did not disclose as required by law. It's at the 14:25 mark. It's a lot of failures. He's in a lot of trouble.

What did conservative Republican President Trump know and when did he know it? Impeach this guy now. Vote liberal Democrat if you want to live. And General Flynn. Do the patriotic thing. Do the thing in your self-interest. Do the thing to save your family. COOPERATE AND TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUMP AND RUSSIA. HELP THIS COUNTRY GET RID OF TRUMP WHO IS A CANCER KILLING THIS COUNTRY.

How dirty Russian money is laundered in a Trump property

Ever wonder how dirty Russian money might be laundered in conservative President Trump's properties? Found this July article from Craig Unger of The New Republic. (New Republic: Trump's Russian Laundromat) Basically, if you are a Russian seeking to launder dirty money, you would buy an apartment say in Trump Tower. Unger traces Trump's Russian connections back thirty years. And he also covered Trump adviser Felix Sater, who has become more relevant lately as it has been reported that he was trying to set up another Trump tower in Moscow in 2015. Unger appeared on MSNBC's the 11th Hour to summarize his report. Below.

Impeach Trump. And vote liberal Democrat if you want to live.

Trump wanted a tower in Moscow

Conservative Republican President Donald Trump says he had no contact with Russia. Should we believe him when his son was colluding with the Russians to win the election? Now, there are reports that Trump adviser Felix Sater in late 2015 set up a deal for Trump to build a tower in Moscow. Trump allegedly signed a letter of intent. Check out this video from Rachel Maddow. Guest David Corn (Mother Jones) was the reporter that broke the Steele dossier. Yeah, I agree with Corn. It's clear. Trump is good to Russia because he wanted to and wants to do business with Russia.

Impeach Trump. And vote liberal Democrat, if you want to live.

Comedy Central shows that Trump supporters are idiots

Jordan Klepper (The Daily Show) trolls Trump supporters and finds out that they are really idiots. I mean they are so obsessed with Hillary Clinton that they are signing petitions to impeach her. Hey you Trump fanatics. She isn't in office. Any office. Not president. Not senator. Nothing. This is what is wrong with some conservatives. It's all blinding hatred. Facts don't matter to these folks.

People, vote liberal Democratic if you want to live. Anyway, check out the video.

Trevor Noah shows that Breitbart's Steve Bannon was a product of immigration

On Sunday, former White House adviser Steve Bannon and head of Breitbart "News" told CBS 60 Minutes how he feels about immigrants. Which Bannon says that America was built by the citizens but he fails to note that those citizens were derived from immigrants. So, Trevor Noah of The Daily Show investigated Bannon's roots. His great grandfather was from Ireland. (Video below at 3:50) So why is it that it's okay for his great grandfather to come to America. Oh, I get it. He was white. What a racist hypocrite.

Vote liberal Democrat, if you want to live.
