"480 Minutes" - Dems Colluded with Russia to Defeat...Dems

There is a traceable thread which connects "trickle down economics" to "conversion therapy" to "birtherism" to "Obama is coming to take your guns" to "death panels" to "but her e-mails/never mind our e-mails" to "Pizzagate" to "millions of illegal voters," but I have to hand it to the wing nuts currently repeating the new lie of the right: it was Hillary Clinton, not the Trump campaign, which colluded with Russia to torpedo...Hillary Clinton.  It takes a voluntary dismissal of logic to swallow, let alone regurgitate, something that plainly inane and obviously false.  In a way, it's kind of impressive.

It takes a lot of self-deception and willful ignorance to support a guy who hires a bartender, a cabana boy, a Meineke muffler salesman, and what appear to be multiple foreign agents (Manafort, Flynn) to work for his campaign and/or administration.  Sticking with him, and the party pushing such a clearly absurd narrative, makes one  complicit in everything they do, including "tax reform" that benefits the wealthy the most while adversely affecting an issue (the deficit) they've been railing loudly against since...well, since a Democrat returned to the White House in 2008.  Suddenly not only is deficit reduction not a priority, they are gleefully cutting taxes AND raising the military budget without raising revenues which will necessarily vastly increase the deficit.  There's a whole lot of misdirection going on.

In less controversial news, today the award-winning 480 Minutes show today will feature new songs by Autobahn (Leeds, England, @autobahnmusik), Daniele Luppi and Parquet Courts (Italy/Brooklyn), Hookworms (Leeds, England, @hookworms), Scent (no clue), and Superet (Los Angeles, CA, @superetiscoming).

The 480 Minutes program begins at 9 a.m. Eastern U.S. Time and is live-hosted until 5 p.m.
The show is rebroadcast in it's entirety on Friday evenings beginning at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 5 a.m. and 3 p.m., and Sundays at 1 a.m. ET.
