Monday’s looking ugly—

And so are the stories behind these links.

Rep. Matt Gaetz continues embracing Trumpism with both arms. Of course, he’s just following established Republican precedent.

Republicans claim impeachment is a witch-hunt but they’re the ones obsessing about witchcraft. Or thinking that witch hunts were led by witches.

If the NCAA allows college athletes to benefit from endorsements, NC’s worthless Senator Richard Burr has a dumb-ass response: tax athletic scholarships.

So a New Jersey public school system banned kids from prom if they hadn’t paid off their lunch bills. A good Samaritan offered to wipe out the debt; the school district said no.

Right-wing bullshit artist David Barton insists quite untruthfully that human beings can’t damage the Earth’s climate.

Republicans don’t support veterans, not when the veterans don’t toe the party line. Or when they’re immigrants.

Ultraconservative forced-birth attorneys are getting judicial appointments. This kind of strategy is paying off: Brett Kavanaugh and Sam Alito met with the leader of an anti-gay hate group.

Climate change is going to hammer our power grid, infrastructure and military unless we do something. And it’s pretty obvious we won’t.

I remember when handwriting analysts would brag about how they could identify the right candidate for companies to hire. I have the same skepticism that AI analyzing facial expressions in interviews is any more reliable, but it’s seeing use anyway.

The power of the Internet to fill kids’ minds with racist, sexist garbage.

Republicans and propagandists keep insisting impeachment is falling apart. No More Mr. Nice Blog looks at why they may not care their lies are so debunkable.

“What leader worth voting for would negotiate with Mitch McConnell or Kevin McCarthy and believe either will keep his word; what sane president would turn over sensitive documents to Republican-led committees; what Democratic president would simply accept that the federal courts are now the property of the opposition, and submit issues of national policy to them, in the confidence of receiving a fair shake? ” — from a discussion of where liberals and America go after the Trump era (assuming there is an after).

The first Republican tax cut didn’t do much for the economy. So they’re going to try it again. Not really that surprising — from the view of the 1 percent, I suspect the issue is less jump-starting the economy than “give us more money!”
