Hot Gossip


Happy 2018 I hope all the PUNK GLOBE readers have a wonderful New Year.filled with love, happiness and good health for us all......




It looks like Net Neutrality will be in the courts for awhile.... Various state District Attorneys and The ACLU have filed lawsuits against the FCC......... LADY BUNNY and PHYLLIS STEIN have found information about the many republiKKKans in congress and senate who have taken money from the various telecom companies who are behind the repeal...... Move On also has a petition that orange hitler's appointee ajit pai to resign because of all the fake comments from citizens that were counted for the repeal... HOMER SIMPSON was one of the names used.... MACKENZIE ASTIN discovered his late mother Actress PATTY DUKE had sent in four comments in favor of the repeal.....It was a woman who works with the FCC who reported all the fake names to ERIC SCHNEIDERMAN the New York Attorney General of all the fraudulent public comments.... CHUCK SCHUMER is also pushing for a legit Senate vote to overturn the FCC ruling...... You gotta love AMY SCHUMER'S cousin....RepubliKKKans in Washington just passed their sham tax bill. Next stop, tangerine terrorist's desk, to become actual law. It makes me sick. This never should've happened. All they had to do was look at the news for 30 seconds to see that this bill is historically unpopular. Barely even a third of the country likes it. But RepubliKKKans in Congress still bent over backward to make it law. We see right through them: They did this for their donors, not their constituents. And now working families will see their taxes go up and their health insurance disappear, while Trump's donors line their pockets. Seriously – at its worst, 83% of the gains from this bill will go to the top 1%......... We must get all these evil RepubliKKKans out of office as soon as possible.... VOTE DEMOCRATIC /INDEPENDENT in November 2018....

Join the Resistance.... “Dictatorship” is not a term to use loosely. But one of the first signs of a orange hitler's Dictatorship appeared on Thursday: tangerine terrorist’s censorship of terms used at – of all places – the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). It’s difficult to think of any federal agency that is less ideological than the CDC. Disease kills Democrats and RepubliKKKans both, and quite indiscriminately. Also the rich and the poor, men and women, white and black, etc. One would think that the simple mission expressed in the name of the agency – ‘Control Disease’ – would limit the opportunity for totalitarian thought-control. Not so. The orange hitler's Administration has prohibited the CDC from using seven terms in official documents relating to its funding request. They are: “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based,” and “science-based.”

Oh, yes, God forbid (says orange hitler) that the CDC should base its actions on actual evidence. Or – even worse – on science. And without the term “diversity,” how is the CDC supposed to address diseases that have disparate impacts on certain groups, like women and breast cancer, or African-Americans and sickle-cell anemia? Is “pluralism” still OK? “Multiculturalism”? How about “melting pot”? The Zika virus causes birth defects in . . . fetuses. What is the purpose of prohibiting any discussion of that – by the agency that is supposed to prevent it? I’ll tell you what the purpose is. It’s ‘Newspeak,’ the official language of Oceania in GEORGE ORWELL'S novel 1984: “’Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten. . . . Every year fewer and fewer words, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller. Even now, of course, there’s no reason or excuse for committing thoughtcrime. It’s merely a question of self-discipline, reality-control. But in the end there won’t be any need even for that. . . . In fact there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking – not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.’”Will he, or won't he? Every day the horrifying idea that orange hitler will fire special counsel ROBERT MUELLER -- in an attempt to end MUELLER'S investigation into his administration's dealings with Russia -- seems more and more likely... That's why SEN. MARK WARNER -- speaking in a dramatic moment on the Senate floor in his capacity as the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee -- issued a harsh warning to orange hitler that any attempt to fire MUELLER or derail the investigation would face "significant consequences":

"Any attempt by this President to remove special counsel MUELLER from his position or to pardon key witnesses in any effort to shield them from accountability or shut down the investigation would be a gross abuse of power and a flagrant violation of executive branch responsibilities and authorities... These truly are red lines and we simply cannot allow them to be crossed." If orange hitler fires MUELLER, Americans need to be ready to hit the streets. But our response can't end there. The best way for us to neutralize orange hitler is to recruit and elect progressive candidates who can take back Congress from RepubliKKKan control in 2018. Now onto some Fun!!! THE WHITE TRASH DEBUTANTES will be playing in Los Angeles, on February 3 2018 at LOS GLOBOS located at 3040 Sunset Blvd.......
