Credulous Liberal Movie Night


To mark the occasion of one-time Never Trump Resistance Hero Glenn Beck going back to his old grift --

-- after he had wrung every loose nickel out of his new Liberal friends --
Glenn Beck: Canary in the Never Trump Mineshaft
-- we here at the driftglass blog are re-launching our "Credulous Liberal Movie Night" educational film series in the almost-certainly vain hope that our more gullible Liberal allies might learn something about trusting professional Republican con men and ratfuckers because this time he's really changed! 

Tonight's feature, David Mamet's 1987 heist/thriller House of Games.

Or, rather, 50 seconds near the finale of House of Games, so [Spoiler!] if you've not seen this before.




Behold, a Tip Jar!

Funny -- I re-watched this less than a week ago. Then I was pissed 'cause The Spanish Prisoner wasn't available for free on Amazon Prime.

Of course, Mamet is now a right winger.

One more if I may:
Saint George Herbert Walker Bush tried to obstruct justice in the Spiro ("Bagman") Agnew case.

He kinda always was. Also, a dick.

Hell of a writer, though, I'll give him that.

I love this movie and of course Mamet is a wing nut. He gave the game away.

This and The Spanish Prisoner and Colin Powell holding up that empty vial, talking about anthrax, is all you ever need to know about how to be a grifter.

Oh, and every episode of "American Apprentice."

But there are some enjoyable grifts on "The Rockford Files."

Yes, yes. So very exciting!!!

A GOP hostile takeover of a whack-O Right wing hostile morally bankrupt network that publicizes the inside of Rabbit holes.

Floating only by life preservers in hopes the good ship Koch or Mercer will steam by and purchase the sinking Turd like they did Breitbartie. As tthey did for Bannon to have a meeting place for NAZIS and KKK members to burn Crosses.

Or to put it in words Rick might understand.

Only a Republican would cut the top of a blanket with many worn holes. Sew it to the bottom of the same blanket. Then market that blanket as new, improved and now with air conditioned.
