My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
The right got it’s vote on the Supreme Court and now we’re watching our rights be chipped away at. First it will be the lgbtq Community, then it will be immigrants, then will be the African-American community and the Latino Community because the Supreme Court is going after communities that are either inherently this light by a large swath of the population or cannot fight for themselves. Shame on the Supreme Court. Shame on this White House. This is not America anymore this is Trump land and it’s disgusting.
Remember when Trump said that the lgbtq community would love him, well I guess that’s one of his 5800 lies since he’s been in office for the last 500 Days.
This is what happens when you have a reality star as the President of the United States. And not just a reality star but one that has colluded with the Russians and knows it. So he’ll do anything including headstands if he was physically able to distract the American people from the Russian investigation. So you headstand let’s talk to the North Korean leader. He jumped at this so quickly that the South Korean and voice who came to the White House were in shock. You could tell that they look like they were doing a hostage video when they were outside the White House in the driveway making the announcement that the president of the United States would meet with the North Korean leader.
Surprise surprise surprise we may have a problem Houston. This was one of the more idiotic things that this president has done and he’s done a lot of idiotic things. We don’t have anyone in the state department in charge of North Korean Affairs. We don’t have or even have nominated an ambassador to South Korea. We are so ill prepared for these talks and we completely forgot about how Japan would feel about this. Yes Japan, the country that has been our friend since the mid-1940s and has steadfastly stood by our side. Well, at least he didn’t give away the farm when he was in North Korea
The rapper Eminem has been attacking 45 since 45 started running for office. 45 remained very quiet about these attacks. Jay-Z talks about Trump and he attacks immediately. Let me think here, what’s the difference between these two rappers? Oh yeah, that’s right, Eminem is white. If anything demonstrates the racism that is inbred in 45 this demonstrates it in an empirical way.
I congratulate both rappers and their denunciation of this President. I congratulate all in the Arts who have made a point of separating this president from all other presidents. He is unlike any other president we’ve had in the modern era. It’s why he has a portrait of Andrew Jackson in the Oval Office. Racists love other racists.
The man has no relationship with the truth. We are experiencing a negative immigration flow from Mexico and the border states have the most stringent laws on the books for voters. He will say and do anything to become president. Each day this man scares me more and more. He’s a liar and we cannot have a liar in office.
He is trying his best to invalidate the results of the election because he knows he’s going to lose. He’s a demagogue and a narcissist and he cannot stand the thought of losing to a woman.
I’m sure in his mind Donald Trump believes the world is now ganging up against him. That’s how bullies think. I’m sure in his bubble his alt right conspirators that include his sons are telling him that he can do no wrong. He believes online polls that have no reliability but ignores the real polls. He has become delusional hand I honestly am starting to believe that he will not appear in the next to the Bates. He never signed the memorandum of understanding with the nonpartisan Election Commission which handles the debates. So, he is not contractually forced into the dating again. I think it would be the mistake of his life and I hope he does it.
I actually have never posted anything from last word with Lawrence O’Donnell do before. But tonight he makes a point that we all need to listen to. The media is cherry-picking what they cover regarding Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump on Friday night said that if Iranians Just Jared from their boat an American war plane going by he would blow up the boat as president. That would be an act of war. That would be an act of war that our allies would not support. And yet all we heard was talk about the deplorables. Hillary Clinton was wrong. The latest polls show that 60% of Donald Trump supporters believe that President Obama is both a Muslim and not born in this country. That’s the deplorable. So please click on the link and not on the picture to watch the video. The picture is here only for illustration purposes. I think you will find it enlightening. It’s refreshing to hear the truth on corporate media
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.
For someone who has been for most of his life yelling at the top of my lungs at the television when George Will was on, this is very surprising. In a speech in front of the Federalist Club George Will said Donald Trump confuses the crowds in an auditorium cheering to his bombastic speeches with the General Electorate. He also said that he hoped that was not a representation of the Republican party but he wasn’t going to take a chance. I believe the straw that broke the camel’s back in this case was brexit and what Donald Trump had to say in Scotland about his Suites. In all my years as a political Observer I have never seen this many defections from the political party during an election year. But then I’ve never seen a candidate like Donald Trump.

Could Democrats in the Congress finally be getting a backbone? Honestly, I have been waiting for this kind of action for way too long. This is unprecedented and quite creative on their part. Since the house is not in session there is no video or audio but house members are streaming live using their cell phones. This is it illegal but they are most likely to get away with it. They are fed up with the inaction over gun safety and our country and are mad and are not going to take it anymore. Republicans, and the words of President Obama, enough is enough. We need gun safety in this country. AVB http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/22/politics/john-lewis-sit-in-gun-violence/
Here is another interesting piece of the puzzle. Nationally Democrats have registered three times more new voters than Republicans have. This is unprecedented. Republicans and Democrats have been pretty much evenly divided in the last 20 years. But this surge could help the Democratic nominee and our hopes for Congress. The link below will take you to the article which has been correct in predicting the election and has shown the Democrats winning since January.
