Not Even ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ From NRA—Just Boasts About Its Legislative Wins – The Daily Beast

First we declared Al Qaeda a terrorist organization. Then we declared the Taliban a terrorist organization and later we declared Isis a terrorist organization. And if you want to add to the rhetoric our current president also calls Iran a terrorist organization.

isn’t it about time that we declare the national rifle association a terrorist organization. It is by all counts why there are so many guns in our country. It is why we have 1300 people dead from mass shootings this year. It’s why we have almost 300 mass shootings this year when the next closest country has three!

video games are not the problem and making new ridiculous laws to put people away becausethey are suspected of having mental health issues. It’s a stomach and it starts with the NRA. When the NRA started in the 60s it was a gun safety organization and now it’s a gun distribution and glorification association.

they’re not even giving lip service to thoughts and prayers anymore and instead are just boasting about the fact that they have been able to pass 10 laws recently that have made guns easier to get. Gunman in Dayton, not Toledo, Ohio had 100 magazine rounds on his assault rifle! Are you telling me that hunters need a hundred magazine rounds?

The NRA is a terrorist organization.

Trump administration responsible for even more separated children, judge rules – NBC News

The judge makes it quite clear. The United States of America is failing at its minimum duty of keeping its citizens and those who reside within its borders safe.

I keep returning to two and a half years ago when life was normal and we didn’t have a man in the White House who has absolutely no humanity, empathy or any of the other human traits that would be a minimum requirement for the presidency of the United States. And yet here we are.

I am very much a part of the never Bernie movement on social media. Bernie Sanders chipped away at Hillary Clinton during the primaries and was only a half-hearted supporter after she won the nomination. That did not stop him from requiring her to spend over $250,000 on private jets for him and his wife. Weird that a man of the people wants private jets.

I blame Bernie Sanders for what we’re dealing with right now and I will do everything in my power to make sure he is not the nominee of the Democratic Party.I truly believe the Democrats should nominate a Democrat any Democrat except for Bernie Sanders.

So Senator Sanders I lay the judge’s ruling at your feet as well as Trump’s.

Rachel Maddow: Trump changes staff at the top to make campaign even Trumpier – MSNBC

Today was one of the Rachel Maddow Show best shows. 

She started with the interview which was with Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager. It’s amazing how wonderful and pleasant he is despite the ugliness on the other side. Her interview with him was fair and made you see that she’s on our side. After the interview Rachel had a little spot where she explained that She interviewed Hillary Clinton 4 times in the last year and she has never been propped up by pillows. If you don’t know this new internet conspiracy theory, the Republicans are trying to say that Hillary is sick and needs to be propped up by pillows. I don’t know how being propped up by pillows makes you feel better if your sick or do your job better. But then Republicans don’t usually make a lot of sense to me.

And how long the segments of the show she explained how breitbart.com and Donald Trump have had a parallel thought line. When will you heard inexplicably Donald Trump attacking John McCain as not a war hero he was mirroring Breitbart. When Donald Trump said that President Obama was not an American he was mirroring Breitbart. So having the head of Breitbart run his campaign is the next logical step. We need to be ready for an assault of ugliness. That coupled with the fact that Roger Ailes is Donald Trump unofficial debate coach is not showing for a Rosy future. Roger Ailes in 1988 was a little-known Republican strategist. When the debate Commission in 1987 said that there would be three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate no one argued about it. But when poppy Bush did poorly against Michael Dukakis, Roger Ailes stepped in and told poppy Bush that there should be no more debates. And that year there was only one presidential debate and one vice presidential debate. So I doubt if we’re going to see all the debates that are scheduled for the presidential campaign this year because I’m sure Roger Ailes will realize that he has a dud as a debater in Donald Trump and will put a kibosh on any further debates.

Which brings us to today’s blog post about the campaign changes in the Trump camp and how they’re going to make the campaign a better reflection of Donald Trump. In fact I believe that they’re going to make the campaign a better reflection of breitbart.com, and that’s a scary thought. Breitbart is the Bastion of white supremacy and racism on the internet. God help us in the next 82 days.

Donald Trump’s slander of Captain Humayun Khan’s family is horrifying, even for Trump – Vox

The sad thing about this, is that those of us who don’t like Trump or support him will just not like him a little bit more. His supporters on the other hand will hear this and think of this as a rallying cry for how they inbody his bigotry and racism. If you search dog whistle Politics on my blog you’ll see how many times I bring this up regarding Donald Trump. It angers me when the media says that Donald Trump is a master of the media. Adolf Hitler was a master of the media. That’s not a compliment that’s just saying that they are manipulative. I hope that the media stops following Trump along like a little dog. I hope the media start not only endorsing Hillary butt also not cover Trump each time he goes to the bathroom. The coverage needs to be even. And I’m not seeing that and that’s why I said that Roger Ailes destroyed the fourth estate.

Donald Trump Speech Ratings Fall Far Below even John McCain’s – Variety

The television networks must be saying “you’re fired” to Donald Trump tonight. John McCain got 38 million, 6 million more than Donald Trump did last night. I think a week that was promised to be full of stars and then up with a list of c-list actors and musicians from the eighties left people disappointed and when it was time for Donald Trump to speak people were really tired of what was going on in the travesty in Cleveland.
