I Miss Those Days

****Warning Strong Opinion To Follow****

Deja vu all over again!

I have not heard a rant like this for decades.

Lindsay Graham has proved what a clueless, out of touched, ignorant douche bag he truly is.

We all know about the rant that that racist prick in the Whiten House has been spewing about a couple of Comgresswomen……now Graham the good little lap dog he has become has shown his age in stupid remarks……

“Well, we all know that (New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) and this crowd are a bunch of communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own country,” Graham said during an appearance on “Fox and Friends.” “They’re calling the guards along our border, the border patrol agents, ‘concentration camp guards.’ They accuse people who support Israel of doing it for the Benjamins. They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America.”

Graham added that if the group of lawmakers are made “the face of the future” of their party, “You will destroy the Democratic Party.”  (Would that be the same as the destruction of the GOP that Graham and his ilk are doing?)

(CNN)

Hahahaha!  This shows just how far out of touch what is left of the GOP truly is…….this is all these stupid lumps of manure have is to insult and lie…..a typical day for the GOP.

Does my old radical heart good to hear that type attack once again…..Thanx Lindsay for showing that nothing has changed in the GOP over the decades.

When a party has NOTHING to offer the voter then they resort to lies and bullshit….and what works for OLD FARTS is the “S” word……

I keep hearing a lot about “socialism” these days, mainly from Donald Trump and Fox News, trying to scare Americans about initiatives like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, universal child care, free public higher education, and higher taxes on the super-wealthy to pay for these. 

Well, I’m here to ask you to ignore the scaremongering.

First, these initiatives are overwhelmingly supported by most Americans.

Second, for the last 85 years, conservative Republicans have been yelling “socialism” at every initiative designed to help most Americans.

THen there is the assholes in the media that are condemning the words by Graham yet they use the same sort of rhetoric when interviewing progressives.

God I have missed the “Love it or leave it” crowd…..the ignorance of that statement shows the ignorance of the supporters of the GOP….worthless lumps of manure.

Cowards LIE!  The GOP lies!  Ergo GOP are cowards!  It is that simple!

****Exit from strong opinion here****

You Cannot Embarrass Apathy

I have been telling anyone that would listen that the GOP as well as the Dems care little about anything but their small path to re-election.

I will give Morning Joe a “gold star” for his effort to call out the GOP for their enabling policies…..

Joe Scarborough lit into conservative media Friday morning for what he sees as behavior for which history will forever see as humiliating for columnists, writers and cable news figures who have shown sycophancy for the Trump administration, in particular, Attorney General William Barr.

The Morning Joe co-host went off on his erstwhile ideologues during a segment pegged to the recent admission made by Rudy Giuliani to the NY Times about “meddling” into an investigation into Joe Biden’s son’s dealings with Ukraine. Scarborough said “Donald Trump has always had no respect for constitutional norms,” to which co-host Mika Brzezinski responded, “He plays very dirty.”

Scarborough then pivoted to the conservative media saying “all of these conservative writers that wanted to maintain their dignity thought they could do that by being ‘anti-anti Trump’ are now all going in on William Barr,” adding, “for instance, the Attorney General commits perjury nobody Trump world lifts an eyebrow, no Republicans care.”

He finished with “You’re defending the most corrupt Attorney General, I mean, since John Mitchell. Like it’s bad. The article is going to look extraordinarily stupid and you’re going to look like — well, the sycophant. It’s really embarrassing. I hope you’ll protect yourself from that because you’ve really humiliated yourself over the past couple of weeks.”

Scarborough is a former Republican House Representative from Florida, and still claims conservative bona fides, however, he has formally announced his leaving of the Republican party, as he has said, “the Republican party left” him.

Nice try but there is NO way to make these sycophants embarrassed over their apathy……these care little for what the voter wants for they feel they know better and will not bend in their thinking.

This is not a new trend….it has been around as long as I have been voting but yet the American people care not….they will vote for someone that hits all the check points of their supporters and then do what they wanted all along…..and the voter will vote for them yet again to do NOTHING they want them to do…..and the cycle never ends.

Reparations?

Closing Thought–26Jun19 (Happy Birthday To Me)……

We are having a debate about the possibility of reparations for savagery of slavery…..this debate in Congress was a big thing in the media…..for a couple of weeks and then it died down as the Dem debates came around.

The hearings in Congress on the reparations thingy…..

The topic of reparations for slavery is headed to Capitol Hill for its first hearing in more than a decade, with writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and actor Danny Glover set to testify before a House panel next Wednesday. The hearing’s stated purpose: “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community, and the path to restorative justice.” The June 19 date of the hearing before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties coincides with Juneteenth, a cultural holiday commemorating the emancipation of enslaved blacks in America, per the AP. Ex-Democratic Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, the longtime sponsor of House Resolution 40, first proposed the measure calling for a study of reparations in 1989. Conyers reintroduced the bill every session until his resignation in 2017.

Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, the resolution’s new sponsor, introduced it earlier this year and pushed for the hearing. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in February she supports a reparations study, a topic that hasn’t been the subject of a House hearing since 2007. Reparations had been a fringe issue until Coates’ 2014 essay in the Atlantic, “The Case for Reparations,” thrust the topic back into the national discourse. Lethal Weapon star Glover has spoken in favor of the issue for years. The reparations debate became part of the 2020 presidential race early, as several Democratic primary candidates signaled their support for compensating slaves’ descendants, though not in a traditional sense of direct payouts to black Americans. Most have been vague on specifics, offering policies addressing economic inequality that could disproportionately benefit blacks .

Now reparations are not the focal point of this post just a little background…..what I want to show is just how out of damn touch the GOP truly has become……and to do that all I need is for the Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell to open his mouth…..

When asked about reparations for slavery on the eve of a House hearing on the issue, McConnell said reparations “for something that happened 150 years ago, for whom none of us currently living are responsible,” were not a good idea. Besides, he suggested acts, such as electing Barack Obama president, could be considered a form of compensation.

“We tried to deal with our original sin of slavery by fighting a Civil War, by passing landmark civil rights legislation, elected an African American president,” McConnell said. “I don’t think we should be trying to figure out how to compensate for it. First of all, it would be hard to figure out whom to compensate.”

If you have nothing intelligent to say or to add then throw Obama into the conversation…..(pathetic political BS)……

Do I need to add anything?

That was probably the most moronic statement uttered by a GOP leader.

They Showed Their Ass

Closing Thought–11Jun19

You know how the people you know complain about the Congress and the way they are a do-nothing bunch…..well yesterday the GOP showed exactly why they are the laughing stock of the nation….

The House Judiciary Committee on Monday held the first of a series of hearings to examine the findings of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in order to determine if any further action, including an impeachment inquiry, is needed.

But the Republican members of the Judiciary Committee chose to spend their time during the hearing delivering petulant, conspiratorial rants instead of taking the hearing seriously or asking any questions that might be relevant to the facts of Mueller’s report.

Most of the Republicans’ childish comments were directed at John Dean, who served as White House counsel to former President Richard Nixon. Dean was brought into the hearing to put Trump’s alleged obstruction of justice into historical context, given that Dean pleaded guilty to helping Nixon obstruct justice during the Watergate investigation.

They tried to be cute with John Dean and Dean handed them their asses at every turn……

The GOP has proven to the clowns I have always said they were and I appreciate them making me a prophet……and yet as silly as they all were they will be re-elected at most turns….so maybe the clowns and buffoons are the voters after all.

All in all the GOP clowns gave me a good chuckle yesterday….for that I thank them …..especially this d/bag……Hawley of Missouri……

“Talk about living in the past,” he said. “The Democrats want to talk about Watergate? I mean this happened before I was born! This is a total waste of time. It’s a total waste of time.”

Missouri senator says it’s a waste of time to study history because it was a long time ago

This statement shows just how much damage the educational policies of the GOP have done to the schools and learning in this country…..it is all a joke.

This stunt, and it was a stunt, was more pathetic than the Dems with the KFC bucket when Barr decided not to honor a subpoena……games are all these spineless freaks know….it is never about the governing just how they look on CSPAN.

Closing Thought–03Jun19

The big stories on the MSM this past weekend was Trump on Brexit…..royal protocol…..Liverpool wins…..Trump’s mouth in England……and this is American media……but a story that needed attention was overlooked for some dribble that informs NO one.

I read a report over the weekend that I had to re-read again and again…..ever read something that you thought could be extreme stupid or very arrogant?

I had one of those thoughts about something a Congressman had to say……

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, said he probably killed “hundreds of civilians” while serving as an artillery officer in Fallujah.

His comments were made public Monday on the latest episode of the podcast “Zero Blog Thirty.”

“I was an artillery officer, and we fired hundreds of rounds into Fallujah, killed probably hundreds of civilians,” he said. “Probably killed women and children if there were any left in the city when we invaded. So, do I get judged too?”

Hunter recalled this story in response to a question about the actions of Navy SEAL Edward R. Gallagher who is on trial in San Diego accused of war crimes including shooting at civilians. Gallagher has pleaded not guilty.

During the podcast, Hunter was asked specifically about one of the individuals Gallagher is accused of killing, a teenage ISIS fighter. According to prosecutors, the SEAL stabbed the teen who was brought in for medical treatment.

“I frankly don’t care if he was killed,” Hunter said. “I just don’t care.”

The Congressman added that he has seen photos and videos from the Gallagher case and has talked to other SEALS who served with him who say they don’t believe the charges. Hunter also said Gallagher should be given a break and that the ISIS fighter he is accused of killing was going to die anyway.

https://shareblue.com/duncan-hunter-brags-killing-hundreds-women-children/

Did this “person” just admit to being a war criminal?  Or he just stupid? Could he be lying to impress? Or maybe thinks he is above the law as most arrogant pricks believe.

Personally, I believe only a moron would admit to killing “hundreds” of civilians.  This macho chest thumping is typical……there is NOTHING macho about war….but few realize that fact.  Plus this macho d/bag just admitted to being a war criminal.

My grandfather gave me some good advice…”Never start your mouth until your brain is in gear”……I pass it on to Mr. Hunter.

News Update:  As of 03Jun19 there is nothing in the news about this confession…..

Fear An Old Foe!

Closing Thought–09May19

Is it 1950?

No?

Then why am I having to listen to yet another mental midget whip up fear from 60 years ago?

The Commies are coming! The Commies are coming!

It seems that the art of lying is rubbing off on all those Congressional enablers of Donald Trump…..just recently the chants of the Commies are coming could be heard from a rally of GOPer Matt Shea of Washington…..

Washington state Republican representative Matt Shea and several associates regaled an audience with conspiracy theories, separatist visions, and exhortations for listeners to arm themselves ahead of a looming civil war, at a gathering at a remote north-eastern religious compound last year.

In recordings obtained by the Guardian, Shea and Jack Robertson, also known as radio personality John Jacob Schmidt, invoked their visions and fears of a violent leftist revolt in speeches at the 2018 God and Country event in Marble.

The Guardian last week published leaked chat records in which Shea and Robertson were revealed to have discussed the use of surveillance, “psyops” and violence against liberal and leftist activists.

 
Are there truly still those so goddamn ignorant that they will believe this lie?
 
There must be for I hear it repeated (in various forms) almost daily….and not all from the GOP…..even the corporate Dems have a version of this meme……
 
Of course it is bullshit but that never stopped a politician from voicing such crap…..I will have more to say on this as the election draws nearer……
 
That is it from me for the day…..have a day…..

GOP Gets More Pathetic By The Day

Closing Thought–08May19

The GOP is doing what it does best…LIES!

They need to spend more time trying to govern than trying to belittle everyone that does not agree with them.

With that said the newest BS coming from the Senate’s leader is just a continuation of the comedy they call “leadership”.

Mitch McConnell summed up his view of the Mueller report in two words on Tuesday: “case closed.” The Senate majority leader criticized Democrats for wanting to continue related investigations and issued a plea to “finally end this Groundhog Day spectacle,” reports NBC News. “Remember, Russia set out to sow discord, to create chaos in American politics and undermine confidence in our democracy,” McConnell said. “But on that front, given the left’s total fixation on delegitimizing the president—the president Americans chose—and shooting any messenger who tells them inconvenient truths, I’m afraid the Russians hardly needed to lift a finger.”

This is pretty much total bullshit.

I have not heard one person in Congress say they want to overturn the 2016 election….they may believe the he is a criminal and a corrupting influence but they know he is the president…..especially the Dems…..So Mitch is just spreading manure the way he always does……

But Mitchy Boy did what all GOPers do….blame everything on Obama…..

On the Russian angle, McConnell also got in a dig at former President Obama. “Maybe stronger leadership would have left the Kremlin less emboldened,” he said. “Maybe tampering with our democracy wouldn’t have seemed so very tempting.”

My one question is…has Mitch read the report? The entire unredacted report? (My guess is he has not and will not for he is a COWARD)

Silly political theater…but then I expect that from politicians…ALL politicians

Was it over when the Benghazi investigation found nothing?  Was it nothing  about the Clinton emails?  These were the same were the same things they are accusing the Dems of doing…..but you see the GOP does stuff it is for the good of the country (read party) and not so when the Dems do something similar……that is as simple as I can break this stupidity down.

The GOP no longer has a soul…..not all it is the enabler of an imperialistic presidency….PERIOD!
