Globalism may just be the thing that keeps corporations from backing autocrats in

this century. Who'd have thunk it back when corporations pushed for freer trade they would actually become liberals. The name "liberal" implied free trade at the start of its inception though. And unions need to be protected. They do that in Germany. It can work anywhere. I guess corporations have looked around and realized they'd rather pay taxes than graft. At least taxes under a democratic leadership and increased wages go towards making people more productive with health and education and entrepreneurship rather than the decrepidization of the population corruption causes. Also trade makes international corporations less likely to attack diversity. They have clients everywhere in the world. Rock on free trade and productivity if that is the carrot corporations need in front of them to be on the side of democracy and diversity.

Tweet of the late night:


I think she is the new Bachman. Democrats can hold her up and say "this is what is going on". She lies, she's racist and she's mean and she spends her days trying to shore up a big lie of one kind or another. Where Bachman made Republicans the batsh** Party, MTG makes it more the Trumpian Party than Trump.

You have to wonder if chaos and scarry training films are wedges to keep

police voting GOP despite the fact the GOP is getting rid of the middle class.

Don't see why the police unions are not all for gun control unless terrified

police is an end goal somehow.

It is what Trump wanted all along: GOP visit Mar a Lago to kiss his ring

again and again, GOP run their schemes without his input. He is just the sculpture on the front of the ship. He is not the ship. They've self-organized. Sure some GOPers are disgusted with the attack on democracy. I hope they continue to be. The majority did not jump ship.

Some still have a soul. Good thing there is globalism as it makes

multinationals like Coke less likely to snuff out democracy or be seen to be silent on the issue. People drink alot of pop around the world. Pretty soon they will be drinking alot of water from coke. No sense in ruining your goodwill if you are a corporation by being on the side of malevolent men who are racist and want to destroy the leader of democracy in the world, the US.

I meant only that the GOP message was kaos like right after Trump lost

with him trying to keep control. Now they are back to normal projecting and lying in a well coordinated way. Parts of the GOP are still split it seems but there is message discipline.

It is the coordinating thing that bugs me. It means the GOP is self regulating.

I guess that must mean that the GOP flatter Trump by holding events at Mar a Lago to superficially make Trump feel he is boss all the while the GOP coordinates its message where Trump has no input.

Did the Democrats get Manchin's family the first job; the Republicans the second?

Is that what he means by bi-partisan?

To not be in on the lies and con when you go on air. Scandalous. Hey

Carlson. What about your viewers? They are not in on the con every day.
