I particularly love the picture they have chosen to illustrate the story.

that is funny to any sane person, but this is not a theme limited to alex jones and his type. versions of it are cropping up with increasing frequency in "mainstream" outlets. trump is ferreting out his enemies in the govt who are trying to undermine him, you know, and the just cashiered michael flynn is a registered democrat who rose under obama, so connect the dots, like.

Young Engels complaining about his family in a letter to Marx:

If I get a letter it's sniffed all over before it reaches me. As they’re all known to be communist letters they evoke such piously doleful expressions every time that it's enough to drive one out of one’s mind. If I go out — the same expression. If I sit in my room and work — communism, of course, as they know — the same expression. I can't eat, drink, sleep, let out a fart, without being confronted by this same accursed lamb-of-God expression. Whether I go out or stay at home, remain silent or speak, read or write, whether I laugh or whether I don’t — do what I will, my old man immediately assumes this lamentable grimace. Moreover my old man’s so stupid that he lumps together communism and liberalism as “revolutionary,” and, whatever I may say to the contrary, is constantly blaming me, e.g. for the infamies perpetrated by the English bourgeoisie in Parliament. In any case it is now the season of piety in this house. A week ago today a brother and sister of mine were confirmed, today the whole tribe went toddling off to Communion — the body of the Lord did its work; this morning the doleful expressions surpassed themselves. Pour comble de malheur I spent yesterday evening with [Moses] Hess in Elberfeld, where we held forth about communism until two in the morning. Today, of course, long faces over my late return, hints that I might have been in jug. Finally they plucked up enough courage to ask where I had been. — With Hess. — “With Hess! Great heavens!” — Pause, intensified Christian dismay in their faces. — “What company you keep!” — Sighs, etc. It's enough to drive one mad. You have no idea of the malice of this Christian persecution of my “soul.”

— Engels, March 17th 1845.

Tony Blair's latest incarnation would be funny only it's beyond parody and just adds to the dystopia vibe.

John Oliver's farcical portrayal of the US as a force for good in the world with "some problems here and there, but nothing that compares to Russia." I don't usually agree with Trump (I never do), but he was spot on (whether intentional or not) when he questioned America's innocence. The fact that Oliver was so taken aback by that statement just makes my skin crawl. Someone needs to remind Oliver how the US has been overthrowing democratically-elected presidents for decades now, or how the US is ranked in world polls as one of the greatest threats to world peace.

to be fair, that performance was well over the top. Normally love Beyonce but on this occasion Katy Perry's performance topped it

The Guardian view on George W Bush: a welcome return

Editorial

A polarising president, Mr Bush sounds a lot better out of office than in it. His swipe at Donald Trump’s brand of populism may mark a turning point for Republicans. We hope so.

The billionaire CEO telling one of his drivers how capitalism works, and also that if he works hard enough, he'll someday join the super-rich club that he's in (the irony being that CEO's write their own checks and do no useful labor themselves.)

"We have to [act in anti-social ways]; we have competitors, or else we'll go out of business. ... Some people don't like to take responsibility for their own shit; they blame everything in their life on somebody else. ... Good luck."
