In Defense Of “The Donald” (Not Likely)!

Some of my readers may think that I spend all my time watching and analyzing what is happening in the Middle East…..but they would be mistaken…..for you see I can multi-task and I can watch the American political climate at the same time…..sorry to burst anyone’s bubble…….

I have watched the rise of Trump from the day he announced his candidacy…..it has been an interesting ride….but the best ride are those people that support him…..I wish I could get excited about him as some of the people I see…..I like the idea of an outsider….but not one that spend all his time talking in riddles and about himself…..

Most of them, Trump supporters,  say they are worried about the direction of this country…..that is a deception……most are just disgruntled party supporters….whichever party that may be…..but we get the same reaction….they want change….which is the biggest joke there is in American politics.  It is a slogan!  No matter which party utters it…..it is not only a lie……. but a goddamn lie!

These people, the voters,  are lying to themselves…..there is NO change coming!  Since you may support Trump I will repeat that….THERE IS NO CHANGE COMING!

Why?  You will get at best reform…..the only way you will get change is to replace the entire system beginning with the Congress and which of you has that kind of BALLS?

That’s what I thought.

Of course the people that support Trump take every opportunity to point out that whatever they say may be seen as racism…..then maybe if they would not use derogatory terms like “swarm”, “horde” and “pack” when referring to refugees then others would not be suspect.  Just a thought.

Trump is NO way capable of leading an entire country….his handling of a racist tirade by a member of his veterans audience……

More trouble in camp Trump? After a debate performance seen as less-than-stellar, Trump’s failure to correct a man’s public assertion that President Obama is a non-American Muslim continues to resonate. Amid the backlash from both fellow Republicans and Democrats, Trump skipped a major forum for GOP candidates last night by excusing himself from the Heritage Action Presidential Forum. His campaign explained that it was because of a “significant business transaction” that required his attention, but not everyone was buying it. The Hill calls his absence “significant” given the stature of the event. Here’s a sample of some of the criticism he’s getting, via the Hill, Politico and the New York Times:

  • Bobby Jindal: After expressing mock sympathy that Trump canceled, he added, “Filing for bankruptcy again? Perhaps 5th time is the charm…”
  • Jeb Bush: “By the way, he’s an American, he’s a Christian,” he said of Obama during a speech. “His problem isn’t that he was born here or what his religion is.”
  • White House: “I don’t think anybody who’s been paying attention to Republican politics is at all surprised. … The people who hold these offensive views are part of Mr. Trump’s base.”
  • Bernie Sanders: “I think it’s a disgrace. … I thought we were beyond that.”
  • Lindsey Graham: “At the end of the day, this is a defining moment for Mr. Trump. The man in the audience who asked that question needs to be put in his place.”

I agree with Graham on this……it is pathetic pandering….and funny how those sunshine supporters are silent on this…..and another indication of cowardice.  But I know he is a birther and it is still part of who he is……

Speaking of veterans…..Trump did a fund raiser for a veterans group, Vets for a Strong America, with claims of 100’s of thousand’s of vets…..when the group is basically one group with $30 in the bank……

The event was sponsored by a group called Veterans for a Strong America. It’s a PAC, a political action committee, and a PAC, like all others, that’s tax exempt. But the founder of Veterans for a Strong America apparently forgot to tell the Trump campaign the group’s tax exempt status was revoked by the IRS last May.

The event was as powerful as the guns he stood under. Donald Trump, Tuesday night, on deck of the decommissioned battleship USS Iowa, there to pick up the endorsement of a group touting in its news release as having more than half a million supporters across the U.S.

“An endorsement from your group, with so many veterans, hundreds of thousands of veterans. I really appreciate that, Joe.”

But the group does not have a good track record of disclosing where its money goes. A quick check with the IRS finds the Veterans for a Strong America actually lost its tax exempt status last May for failing to file required reports. Here’s the document from the IRS, which shows that the group is appealing.

Another prime example of the trashiness of Trump’s supporters.  Not one of the so-called supporters have condemned this act against veterans and to them veterans are a prop….ONLY.  They like the rest of the country have NO true support for the veterans…..only when it is convenient……

Now the conclusion…..supporters are giddy over a person that has not given one idea for a solution other than a wall…..as if the wall will solve all our problems…..least not we forget that Trump is very good a tooting his own horn….if that is what it takes to be prez then by all means vote for him and with a little luck he will become president and then the whiners will truly have something to whine about….

Please vote for Donald Trump…..it will be the best thing that ever happen to politics in America!  The voter will awaken to see just how fucking stupid they have been for the last 50 years.

Let the Age Of Realization Begin!

GOP’s New No. 2 (For Now)

I recently wrote a post about the last GOP debate (#2) and wrote that Carly had come out swinging at he Opponents…..some misunderstood my motives as they thought I was somehow defending her and her policies…..let me say now…I WAS NOT!

All I was attempting to do was point out that she had held her own against the guys on the floor…I by no means think she is capable of winning the nomination or the presidency.

Her policies are mostly based on lies and misinformation with the usual slogan thrown in for the red meat eaters that are listening….and apparently her strategy worked!

The last poll (if there is ever a last poll) shows her replacing Carson as the number 2 candidate behind Trump……

Carly Fiorina’s rave reviews in the latest debate are translating to the polls: She now trails only Donald Trump in a new CNN/ORC survey of Republican voters. Trump still leads with 24%, ahead of Fiorina at 15% and Ben Carson at 14%, but her numbers in that trio of outsider-ish candidates are rising while theirs are falling. Trump, for example, is down 8 percentage points from earlier in the month. Marco Rubio rose to fourth place at 11%, followed by Jeb Bush (9%), Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee (6%), and the rest at 4% or less. Of note in the last camp: Scott Walker stands at less that half a percentage point.

The Hill suggests that Fiorina is pleasing the party’s base by shifting to the right on hot-button issues such as abortion and immigration, at least compared to her losing 2010 Senate race. It cites a “noticeable hardening of her rhetoric.” In the debate, for instance, drew loud applause for condemning the Planned Parenthood videos, describing a “fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.” Afterward, she shrugged off criticism that the videos don’t actually depict that scene by calling it an accurate description of what’s happening in that field. “Rest assured that human lives are being aborted, fully formed, in order to harvest body parts,” she said.

The only good news from that poll is that the cretin Scott Walker is losing support as we speak…..

But for now we have a new #2 in the GOP race….ha-zah!

Threat of ISIS ‘Infiltration’ of US

I have listen to the concerns of those that fear the influx of refugees because of the possibility that ISIS or AQ will infiltrate and take hold in this country.

For some it is an all consuming fear….

I have spent some time trying to explain the situation to those most concerned but as usual mostly my comments have falling on deaf ears.  People that have been put into a state of fear and hate cannot be reasoned with on any level.  They delude themselves with cover words like “warning” but to me that is just a defense mechanism to cover the hate born of fear.

Every time I try to set the record straight I get push back and sometimes to the extreme….when that occurs I think of something my grandfather use to say….”when you teach pigs to sing…you waste your time and piss off the pig”…..it applies here.

Disregarding what “Gib” use to say….I will attempt one last effort…..

After that I will get push back on the religion of Islam.  Few want to believe that the beliefs of ISIS and AQ are a minority belief…..they will not accept that there is a “liberal” version of Islam….that is a shame….a religion of 1.5 billion is condemned by a small percentage of the believers.

Islmophobia has become a spreading disease….a poison growing in American society….why?  Only because of misinformation and an unwillingness to listen.

This situation is getting out of hand…..even a presidential candidate has said that a follower of Islam should not be “allow” to lead this country…..a purity test of sorts?  Does that sound familiar to anyone else?

All Americans should see this as a disturbing trend in a “free” society…..don’t cha think?

Let me close with this…..”You Can Lead A Bigot To Knowledge, But You Cannot Make Him Think.”

Neocons Babble Over Syria Crisis | Consortiumnews

My regulars know that I think that our foreign policy is run by semi-literate toads….not just today but for the last 30 years.

The US has gone from one misadventure to another and no where has anyone actually question their decisions.  Why?  Simple.  The government is using the MSM as their propaganda arm……disguising the awful reality as news…..and only the news that reinforces the neocon line of thought.

Yep, I consider Obama and his band of jolly mistrals as neocons also.  Why?  He has done nothing to break the line of misadventures….using the US military as a tool for assisting the M-IC in their ever searching program for profit and influence.

The 2016 election is approaching like the coming storm and yet absolutely no one is talking foreign policy……with the exception of a slogan here and there…..there is nothing on the table to break our  continuous adventures…..

This election……no matter who wins the popularity contest will do little to stop the neocons and their pursuit of empire.   Now the War on Terror has been replaced by a new Cold War……is this the 1950’s?

My best suggestion is to just hang on to your goodies……the next prez will take us on a wild ride……and somehow I cannot see a happy ending……and the way the country is leaning….it will be disastrous!

Can anyone stop the killing in Syria?

For the last month there has been a flood of refugees to Europe….and as usual there has been a batcrap crazy response from the world.

There has been so much negative ink about the situation especially from the knuckle draggers on the Right……that the whole horrific episode has turned into some sort of reality TV show…..

So far No one was asked the one question that needs asking…..Can anyone stop the killing?

The answers that are out there right now is all about the defeat of ISIS and the ousting of Assad……there is no other answer….there is no other consideration………

As the last five years have shown us, the bloodier the change, the worse the outcome.
