National Disgrace

The Rise and Fall of Donald Trump

Blowhard  [ˈblōˌhärd] (noun): A person who talks too much or too loudly, especially in a boastful or self-important manner.  A person who blusters and boasts in an unpleasant way; a braggart, windbag, loudmouth, gasbag, asshole, ass wipe, dumb ass, dick, idiot, etc.

Donald Trump has a small penis.  Everyone knows that the guy with the biggest gun has the smallest penis…

The “liberal media” loves a good story.  Donald Trump is a “showman”, a carnival barker, a racist son of a bitch.  Thus, the rise of the Donald.  But please “liberal media”, don’t insult my intelligence by sitting around your glass tables pontificating as to why Donald Trump has such large crowds and has lasted so long as front-runner, as I sit and watch 30 minutes of a Trump rally, where he spoke about his poll numbers, how large his crowd was, how everything was going to be beautiful, about the fact that he hasn’t spent any money-he wants to spend money, but he’s getting all this free publicity…  and how stupid the media is – you know, “those idiots at the back of the room”, you know, the ones that never show his large crowds (camera then shows his audience), you know, the ones that never pan the crowd (camera then pans the room).  Oh.  He meant those idiots.

Then, the broadcast returned to the studio where the talking heads spoke Trump for another 20 minutes, then returned to his rally.  Hmmm… I wonder how he did it?  I’m sure the “liberal media” policy of: 24/7, everything Trump – had nothing to do with it. Make no mistake, Donald Trump is not the national disgrace.  The liberal media is.  It is they who embraced the Tea Party and their blatant racism toward Pres. Obama.  It is they who gave the Tea party the platform  to speak and represented them as a majority, not the minority of “Americans” (instead of Republican-Americans) that they were.  It is they who embraced the Birther Movement and Donald Trump’s ridiculous demand to see Pres. Obama’s birth certificate.  It is they who, with the help of the Republican Party, laid the ground work for today’s political environment; one filled with fear, racism, and divisiveness.  http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=donald+trump+rally&&view=detail&mid=81A4213288428EA2505081A4213288428EA25050&FORM=VRDGAR  It is they who are the national disgrace.

“People see him as the strongest to deal with foreign policy, the economy, on all the issues, and national security, that voters care about.” – Mark Halprin, Morning Joe

But why does no one ask: “Based on what?” His ability to bloviate?  Certainly not on his policy proposals;  Making America Great Again by: Building a wall that “the Mexicans” will pay for (and it will be beautiful-the biggest most beautiful wall that you have ever seen).  Fixing the economy – the one that corporations (of which Donald Trump owns more than a few) have enjoyed making record profits in for the last 7 years of the Obama administration.  Helping the middle class; cutting their, as well as corporate taxes (because what, corporations need another tax cut? or does he have faith in the “Trickle Down Theory”?, and if the rich getting richer is such a good thing, please explain why the United States is suffering [middle class, poor point of view] from the largest gap of income inequality in its history?).  Defeating Isis-by “bombing the shit out of them”  http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=donald+trump+on+isis&&view=detail&mid=E5FFE446F4342D359E3EE5FFE446F4342D359E3E&FORM=VRDGAR because bombs have worked so well so far…  Well, at least we can have confidence in his negotiation skills.  After all, he is a multi-billionaire right? “One figure that was missing: Trump’s net worth.” – http://www.politico.com/story/2015/07/donald-trump-financial-disclosure-120472 I mean, he’s smart and everyone else is stupid right?  http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=donald+trump+rally&&view=detail&mid=7802CD8EEB61ADA8BC137802CD8EEB61ADA8BC13&FORM=VRDGAR

If all it takes to become President of the United States is to be a racist carnival barker who talks in circles but says nothing, a bully who bases his political campaign on personal attacks resulting in emotional not cerebral commentary, a candidate who has no policy plans other than “Its gonna be beautiful.”, well ladies and gentlemen, meet your new president…

You’re almost there buddy.  Blow harder Donald.  Blow harder.

The Face of Revolution?

bernie2 Yup.

The roof, the roof is apparently on fire. Well, we don’t need no water… we’ve got Bernie.  Bernie baby, Bernie!  The self proclaimed Socialist is giving the Democratic debutante a run for her (or should I say the big bank’s) money.  Free from the shackles of corporate sponsorship, the Sanders campaign is being carried by an enthusiastic grass-roots movement, spawning spry, if not rich, individual donors.  So sprightly in fact, that his campaign recently broke Pres. Obama’s fundraising record – 2.3 million individual donations to Pres. Obama’s 2.2 million by the end of the year.  The majority were small donations with the average donation at $25.00.  He is close to, and is expected to surpass Hillary Clinton’s $29 million fundraising effort by the end of this quarter.  Should she be concerned?  Yup.

Not only in money but support as well, Sanders has closed in if not surpassed Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire respectively.  If not already blinded by the prospect of having a vagina as president https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHJEtTZJ9rY , supporting Sanders should not be a difficult decision. After all, a Socialist by any other name is a Democrat.  He appears to be concerned with the same issues as the majority of the Liberal base; channeling an older, whiter, Elizabeth Warren*.  Could that be the reason the Democratic Party recently blocked the Sanders campaign from its own donor information; a way to slow down his momentum – especially in Iowa? – with the caucus right around the corner?  Within the realm of possibility?  Yup.

Bernie Sanders’ Hillary moment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrBXcKcviuc .

Hillary Clinton’s Hillary moment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mByd4TCoWao .

I rest my case.

* Where the hell is she anyway and what the fuck was that meeting about between her and Hillary Clinton right around the time Clinton announced her Presidential bid and why was Warren the only no-show at the Clinton fundraiser where the other 13 female Democratic senators showed up to support her and why is she not supporting Bernie Sanders anyway?

 

 

 

Monkey Business

Paul Ryan Perpetuates Deception

     Joe Biden made a monkey of Paul Ryan at the Vice Presidential debate last night.  Calling Ryan on nearly all of his malarkey, Biden kept the boy genius on the defense, and at times speechless; seemingly in turmoil when questioned about Roe v. Wade, and other issues where his personal beliefs conflict with that of the Romney campaign’s newly stated ones.  But like a true Republican soldier, Ryan marched onward with the flag of deception flying high. The policy wonk was unable to articulate his campaign’s vision of voucherizing Medicare.  As Biden said, “The numbers don’t [didn’t] add up.”  Ryan was pressed for specifics on foreign policy and, even though he had ample time, still managed to give none.  He continued the Romney campaign’s tactic of providing “low information” voters with no information.

     Something magical happened last night…  something strange, yet wonderful.  Something we are not used to seeing in today’s politics.  Something we may never see again in our lifetime, for its occurrences are few and far between.  The truth won.

Convention Bumps and Bruises

The Seeds of Discontent

“Republicans who want Mitt Romnay to win – who desperately want Barack Obama out of the race, had  better hope that people like Karl Rove and others that have influence in this campaign start going to the candidate and getting in his face and saying ‘we’re investing a lot of time, a lot of effort and a lot of money in you buddy and you better get your stuff together, and the next time you go on a national Sunday show, you’d better have some answers.  You’re not going to be able to coast into victory; you will coast into a 52 – 48 loss.'” – Joe Scarborough (Morning Joe).  Even devoted partisan,  Republican defender Mark Halperin stated, “The President has a meaningful lead and it’s not tied or within the margin of error.”

It seems reality has set in.  Republican party members are publicly (and Mitt Romney’s team privately), acknowledging the “bump” the DNC received from their convention and the lack of one for the Republicans.  Polls show Pres. Obama with 49% of the vote, and Mitt Romney with 44%.  Even the Republican skewing Rasmussen Poll shows:  Obama: 50%  Romney: 45%.

Uh-oh, better ramp up the voter suppression guys!

The Big Dick

Biggest dick of all.    Just a Little White Lie

MSNBC has reported that newly unclassified documents reveal both George Bush and Dick Cheney were briefed by the CIA the day before Cheney went on Meet the Press to link Mohammad Atta to Saddam Hussein:  http://leanforward.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/06/21/12345196-sharpton-new-declassified-document-undermines-cheneys-claim-of-iraqi-connection-to-911?lite .

Over 4,000 Americans killed and maimed, hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis killed or disfigured, $800 billion of US treasure spent  in the name of what… justice?  Oil? Freedom?  Democracy?  Or was it for the enrichment of he and his friends (lets not forget about Xe [Haliburton])?  Interesting how draft dodger Cheney  http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/chatterbox/2004/03/elizabeth_cheney_deferment_baby.html  had no problem with sending thousands of our children to die by lying us into a war, but didn’t want to personally fight for the country he claims to love.

What a Bush!

Whistleblower Gets Death Threat at Work

According to New York Times, Jack Palmer, an employee at the outsourcing company Infosys, has been getting harassed and even had a death threat letter placed in his office ever since he came forth to authorities regarding shady practices at his company.  I guess the “No Snitch” policy works in the corporate world much like it does on the streets.

Exercise in Futility

  Resistance is Futile

The Borg-like Mitt Romney suffered incredible primary losses in the southern states of Mississippi and Alabama last night.  Once again he showed he cannot win in the South.  Lucky for Mitt he will be running agin a negro Nazi, socialistic communist, Keynesian Marxist Muslim who hates white people and wants to take their guns away.

The longer the Republican primary race goes on, the more it seems that Mitt the Inevitable may become Mitt the Fortuitous (if he is allowed the nomination).  The Republican party is going to have to pull a rabbit out of the proverbial bag of dirty tricks if they want their man in.  Can’t wait for the show.

President Obama on the other hand?  Well, what will the Republican agenda be when he wins in November?  To make sure he doesn’ t win a third term?  Will they be able to overcome their racist tendencies and work with him to actually help the American people?  Or, will we give President Obama what he needs – overwhelming majorities in both the House and Senate – to do the things he knows that we know that he knows we want him to do?

Exxon Effoff

  Republicans Full of Gas

     By now we all know that the United States consumes approx. 20% of the world’s oil while our domestic production capacity sits at 2%.  We could not drill enough oil here in America to supply our own addicted demand, much less influence world oil prices.  Yet Republican presidential hopefuls continue to blame President Obama for the spike in prices at the tank.  Newt Gingrich even goes so far as to say,  if he’s elected President, gas prices will be $2.50/gallon.  Remember when John McCain said he knew where Osama Bin Laden was?  All we had to do was elect him President and he would tell us.  Well we all know where Osama is now don’t we?

     Interesting interview yesterday.  Matt Lauer of the Today Show asked about the increase in gasoline prices.  Rex Tillerson, Chairman and CEO of Exxon (the world’s largest oil company) stated: “What drove these prices up is entirely the crude oil price.  Supply and demand is fine.  So what’s led to this most recent run-up?  Obviously concerns about the rhetoric over the closing of the Strait of Hormuz and the conflicts with Iran.”  What?  Did he just say that?  Yes, yes he did.  The 1%er confirmed that Wall  St. speculators are responsible for the drastic and sudden increases in gas prices.  Not President Obama.  So sorry Republicans, I guess it’s back to the drawing board!

p.s.  – Drill baby drill!
