What kind of low-rent, retro, Roger Stone ratfucking is this? Did the Arizona GOP really send a couple of idiots over to the campaign office of a Democratic House candidate with $39.68 worth of change and a claim to represent the Northern Arizona University Communist party? Do these dipshits just watch James O'Keefe videos all day and think, "Yeah, that guy gets it?" Were they wearing matching Che T-shirts and clutching copies of Mao's Little Red Book on this caper? It's Friday, so we're going with YES TO ALL, ALLEGEDLY.

Last week, two Republican nitwits walked into the campaign office of Democratic Congressman Tom O'Halleran with a jar of coins to donate to his reelection campaign. They called themselves Jose Rosales and Ahmahd Sadia -- get it, a Messican and a Mooozlim! Subtle.


Ben Jacobs from The Guardian reports,

The pair initially walked in to sign up to volunteer but had brought along a jar full of money that they wished to donate. After being directed to a finance staffer, they were told to fill out paperwork. In doing so, they identified themselves as members of the Northern Arizona University Communist party. They made clear they were not an official group but were holding meetings. But they also insisted upon a receipt.

When told they get only an emailed receipt, Rosales immediately scratched out one email and wrote another. The entire process raised eyebrows among O'Halleran's staff.

No kidding it raised eyebrows! Roger Stone pulled this shit in 1972, when he pseudonymously donated to Nixon challenger Pete McCloskey in the name of the Young Socialist Alliance, and then sent the receipt to the media to prove that McCloskey was a secret commie. But this isn't 1972, and the O'Halleran finance staff clocked these two bozos from the jump.

Here's a video of Lindsey Coleman, O'Halleran's finance director, marching in to the Arizona GOP office to return the money immediately.

Nice of the front desk dude to narc out his pal Oscar, who emerged from a door to reclaim his cash before disappearing like Homer Simpson into a bush. Good luck with the FEC, Oscar! Maybe you and "Ahmahd" should have looked a little closer at those campaign finance regulations, since it's illegal to donate to a campaign under a false name. But don't worry, because you guys have a big future in television. Safe bet you're about to star in a whole bunch of O'Halleran campaign ads!

Slow fuckin' clap, geniuses.

Yeah, that's definitely a repurposed animatronic Hillary (YouTube)

A whole bunch of protests were held today against the fake "president's" fake "emergency" declaration, with people turning out in cold crappy weather to call attention to the general nastiness of the guy who claims he absolutely had to do that declaration that wasn't necessary. Organizers with MoveOn.org said over 250 rallies were planned nationwide. So far, the national State Of Emergency doesn't appear to have caused any of the rallies to be cancelled, despite the very real possibility that terrified Honduran refugees fleeing violence in Central America might suddenly show up and ask for asylum.

Are there still actions taking place in your area? Check at MoveOn!

WHAT. IS. PAUL. MANAFORT. HIDING?

Before Manafort pleaded guilty and signed up as a cooperating witness who didn't actually cooperate, we wrote this:

We have always kind of figured that Paul Manafort is the one who knows the whole Trump-Russia conspiracy story. He was the first big fish indicted, and they hit him for A LOT. Also note that just about all the other prosecutions that have come from the Mueller investigation so far have been farmed out by Mueller to different jurisdictions. Manafort, on the other hand, Mueller has kept squarely in his office. There has to be a reason for that.

Perhaps it's because, as this Josh Marshall podcast suggests, Paul Manafort, a foreign agent who worked for Oleg Deripaska, AKA Putin's favorite oligarch, and who got sideways financially with Deripaska, was literally sent into the Trump campaign by the Kremlin to do its dirty work. Perhaps the Steele Dossier is right when it suggests that the entire Trump-Russia election-stealing conspiracy was run by Manafort on the Trump side, and that others like (perhaps!) Michael Cohen only had to take over when Manafort's shit started to stink and the news media started reporting on his weird-ass Russian connections in the summer of 2016.

If it's possible, we are beginning to suspect it may be even worse than that.

On Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller issued his sentencing recommendations for Manafort, after DC district court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled conclusively that the shady motherfucker very intentionally lied and blew up his cooperating agreement. Because Manafort defaulted, Mueller is no longer bound to recommend that Manafort's sentence be reduced, and is free to throw the book right at Manafort's face. HARD.

And that is what Mueller did! To be clear, the sentencing memo is harsh.
