Donald Trump is not the root of the problem that’s sending America to hell. These stupid, moronic, phony Christian people from Alabama in this video who are so easily manipulated by monsters like Trump and Roy Moore are at the root of this country’s problems. They’re the smiling, thoughtless masses depicted in 1984. The monsters of the world like Putin, Trump, and Roy Moore are good, decent people to be admired because they’ve been told that by the monsters themselves.

They believe evil is good because they don’t recognize it as evil. They believe that even if a political candidate is really a pedophile it doesn’t matter because he’s one of the them and the Democrat isn’t. They believe Trump is one of them because he speaks their language in simple, visual terms they can comprehend. You will never change the minds of such people because their simple minds, once set, will never change. And these are the people that vote in the same Republicans year after year who screw these simpletons. The Republicans could bludgeon these people to death, all the while spouting quotes from the gospel, wrapping the baseball bat in barbed wire and Jesus, and these simpletons would smile as they day, believing it was God’s will and that the Republican is just returning them to their Heavenly Father.

And that’s how monsters like Donnie and Roy Moore manipulate these people. The problem with the Democratic Party is that it has never understood these people and never will. They will never understand their simple minds and will never learn how to talk to them. The Democrats don’t even know how to talk to their own people anymore.

And so…we have this. Trump, whose popularity is the lowest of anyone whos’s sat in the White House over the past several decades, will remain there because that’s where the GOP wants him. Roy Moore will be elected because he’s a God-fearing Alabamian, while his Democratic opponent is a godless demon. These Alabamians love Putin because he’s not a Communist, just a Russian leader to be admired because Trump says he’s an ally of America. They detest and fear politicians like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren because they’re told by the monsters that they ARE communists and socialists committed to destroying America by turning it communist and socialist.

The Democrats helped create this. The GOP exploits and perpetuates it. You can’t fix stupid, but stupid will create a lot of damage that may also never be fixed. And there’s not a thing any of us can do about it. It’s God’s will.

Me Too–The New McCarthyism

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/two-more-women-accuse-sen-al-franken-of-inappropriate-touching/ar-BBFvYfm?li=BBnb7Kz

If your goal is to drive a Democratic senator from office, you don’t get to be anonymous. What a coincidence that there are two of you and somehow you both decide to contact HuffPo on your own at the same time while insisting you remain anonymous.

The first accuser claims to be “a liberal person…I voted for him after this happened.” This sounds more like a government-ordered propaganda whispering campaign of the type used in Nazi Germany or the USSR than a “liberal person”.

This isn’t freedom of speech, this is libel when written, slander when spoken. When this country gets to the point where anonymous sources contacting an online newspaper can make accusations with absolutely no shred of evidence, then Trump has indeed won.

“In a statement to HuffPost, Franken said, “It’s difficult to respond to anonymous accusers and I don’t remember those campaign events.”

Damn right, Al. You don’t respond to anonymous accusers. Let them step forward and identify themselves and exactly which campaign events those alleged events occurred. There’s a thing called the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution and it covers anyone accused of sexual misconduct–or worse–so that their lives are not destroyed by unfounded accusations or innuendos. It gives every single person in this country the right to face their accusers in a court of law, to have all evidence presented, and to have their case decided by a jury of their peers. This whole Me Too thing has turned into a lynch mob with the media supplying the rope and torches. There are men who appear to be legitimately guilty of some accusation and some of them have admitted their guilt. Some of voluntarily quit their careers while others have had theirs ended by a unilateral decision by their employers based entirely by accusations totally unsupported by evidence, other than those men who have in part admitted their guilt.

This is the new McCarthyism and it has to stop. This has to stop now. Our country is being run by men who have complete disregard for the rule of law, for our Constitution. We cannot afford to allow ourselves to follow suit or the last shred of democracy that still faintly breathes on life support will die. And to be brain dead would make us all like the orange-headed moron in the White House.

So ladies, if you set out to ruin a man’s career and life, you better have the guts to step up and identify yourself and provide proof. Otherwise, you have the credibility of that orange-headed moron in the White House.

With Sincere Apologies From The Butt-Grabber/Groper-In-Chief

So, 41’s press spokesman, Jim McGrath, is once again issuing the statement that was created in response to the accusation from the first teenage groping victim: ““George Bush simply does not have it in his heart to knowingly cause anyone harm or distress, and he again apologizes to anyone he may have offended during a photo op.” Well so far we’ve got six women (not all were teenagers when he groped them) who’ve come forward, and Bush’s blanket apology is supposed to do for all of them.

The now-beleagured press guy has tried to explain it all away on Bush Sr’s. attempt to make women standing next to him during a photo op feel more at ease (while he was feeling their tookus) “At age 93, President Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for roughly five years, so his arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures. To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke — and on occasion, he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner. Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate. To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely.” Hmm, then I suppose Bush thought that by telling each young groping victim that his favorite book was “David Cop-a-Feel” it would make him look like harmless, silly ol’ Grandpa to them. “Oh don’t mind him. You know how Grandpa is.”

None of that worked either so they bring on talk show surrogate Ben Shapiro who tries to sweep it all under the rug by floating the image of Bush as helpless, harmless ol’ Grandpa, so feeble that he’s confined to his wheelchair and and can no longer control where his arms fall. Look at most of the photos the corporate media are posting when they post these stories. There’s George H.W. looking old and feeble, and looking somewhat Parkinson’s-like in his facial expression…in a wheelchair. Yes, Bush has an actual debilitating disease, and his people are playing it for all its photo-op, explanatory worth.

However, look at the photo that is being posted by some media news organizations–God love the British–of Bush’s physical condition when this latest alleged teenage girl butt groping occurred. This was back in 2003. There’s George H.W. at 79, looking full of vigor, in full control of his arms, standing tall and erect. And at the exact moment this photo was taken, grabbing a 16 year old girl’s buttocks.

And now Laura Bush to daddy-in-law’s rescue yet walking it back at the end: “I’m just sad that we’ve come to this. That was something that was very, very innocent that he’s been accused of. But I know he would feel terrible.”

Yes, Laura, Bush feels terrible. Feels terrible at being caught. Too bad you can’t know how terrible his sixteen victims (and most likely counting) feel.

The Buying Of The Democratic Presidential Nomination And The Selling Out Of The Democratic Party

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/brazile-hillary-rigged-dnc-against-bernie/ar-AAumfqZ

It really doesn’t matter how Donna Brazile is framing her role in how last year’s Democratic primaries went down, and I’m not giving her a pass in that role. She helped Clinton attain the nomination as surely as the DNC did, which in fact Brazile took over as interim chairwoman in July 2016. Facts is facts. though, and the facts (OK–allegedly) are these: Hillary Clinton through her campaign bought and paid for the Democratic presidential nomination, along with funds provided by the DNC (via Debbie Wasserman Schultz). How ironic that Donnie essentially did the same thing on his side but using other people’s money and virtually none from his own campaign finances, which were relatively minuscule.

Clinton’s problem was that she didn’t have enough money to buy the election, which is besides the point because the Russians wouldn’t have sold it to her at any price. But now Bernie’s motive in knuckling under to the Clinton campaign now becomes understandable and forgivable. After Brazile told him about that August 2015 which gave Hillary Clinton control of the DNC and therefore the entire party and nomination, Bernie saw the game was rigged against him. He had no choice but to fall in line like the good foot soldier they had made him, throw his support and voter base her way, and hope for the best. Unfortunately for him and all of us, the election was already rigged for Trump by the Russians. (If anyone still doubts this, continue to view and listen to that vile scum. There is no way someone that inarticulate and that stupid could ever be elected president because NO ONE that inarticulate and stupid has EVER been elected president in our lifetime. And that includes George W. Bush, who was appointed president in 2000 by the Supreme Court and beat out John Kerry in 2004 by some very questionable vote tabulating in Ohio. But that’s a whole other story I’ve written about at length over the past years.

I have no idea whether Bernie was surprised, gratified, or dismayed by the number of us liberal Democratic voters who refused to march behind him last November. But in an un-rigged election Clinton had more than enough popular–which also translated into electoral votes–to win the election. Show me where in modern times the candidate with three million more votes lost in the electoral college fair and square. It didn’t happen because it’s never happened.

But I admit that all of this is as may be, which means meaningless. Bernie is once again an Independent, as he always intended to be had he lost the nomination. The Democrats are as polarized in fractionated (yes, the definition of that word provides the exact imagery I’ve intended) camps as the Republicans. The difference being, the GOP virtually controls the entire political process and the corporate media in this country. And the GOPers who oppose Trump are dropping out of their political careers like flies on a rotting corpse. But the ones who take their place will continue to march in goose step, I mean, LOCKstep behind whoever is in the White House. So don’t be expecting any major Democratic victories next year or in 2020, much less a unified Democratic Party. That was the price we all paid for the Clinton presidential nomination.

Your Average White Supremacist – A Rebel Without A Thought

http://www.npr.org/2017/10/30/560767446/in-shelbyville-tenn-proud-to-be-white-and-hate-is-not-the-solution

This is the kind of mind with its limited thinking we’re up against in our battle against white supremacists. Not only listen to what the woman attending the white supremacist rally has to say but also the WAY she says it. She’s fairly inarticulate in expressing exactly what her ideology is, falling back on right wing hate speech talking points. But listen to her nervous laughter as she speaks them. She sounds embarrassed to speak her mind. Is she not so sure her point of view is right? Does she fear she’s coming across as a typical white supremacist instead of someone instilled with pride of the South?

“We just want to be left alone. That’s it.” She’s asked who isn’t leaving her alone and she can’t articulate a coherent answer that isn’t a talking point. These aren’t her own ideas; they were given to her. She really has no identity or ideology of her own. I would imagine she isn’t well-read or up on any issues of any kind other than keeping immigrants away from her and demanding no federal controls over the guns she chooses to own. And that she should be free to discriminate against whoever she chooses. All she knows is that she wants the federal government to leave her alone, without thinking of the implications and repercussions of what would happen if the feds left her alone and withdrew every single bit of federal money that keeps the meager economy of where she lives alive. In my opinion, people like her just fail to think things through. It’s much easier to be told what to think if it sounds right (in other words, simple and easy to understand) to them.

“We just want to be left alone”. Keep in mind, she wants to be left alone yet she DROVE ALL THE WAY FROM HER UNSPECIFIED TOWN IN SOUTHERN VIRGINIA TO SHELBYVILLE, TENNESSEE to tell NPR and anyone else who might listen that she just wanted to be left alone. If she did just want to be left alone, she should’ve stayed home. No one was bothering her there, right?

“Well, today you have people who, you know, I’m a Christian, you know, Christian background, so I have virtues and values. And things that they are promoting out, you know, like on commercials and stuff like that, you know, that stuff’s not right to me. I mean, I’m not…

NPR: Like what? Like, what’s something that really bothers you?

“You know, the LBGT stuff. I don’t agree with that stuff. I mean, I don’t hate those people, but if they want to be that, that’s fine, but don’t shove it down my throat, you know? And as far as multiculturalism – you know, every commercial you see on TV, it shows that multiculturalism. Why? Why is that? What – are they trying to paint a picture (laughter)?”

Didn’t Jesus preach that we should accept and love everyone? Doesn’t this form the basis of the Christian religion? So exactly what virtues and values does she have? She never says. She expands only on what she doesn’t like. And she says in another paragraph “I’m proud of what my ancestors made me and I’m proud of what my ancestors did because they fought for my state, my homeland…”

What she’s saying is that she’s proud her ancestors made her white and that they fought to preserve slavery. Don’t know about you but when anyone talks about their homeland, visions of Adolph Hitler and the Nazis come to mind. And what a coincidence that the NPR reporter states that at that white supremacist rally “There were chants that conjured Nazi ideology.” It is not only the “liberals” making the connection between white supremacist ideology and Nazism.

What About Bill Cosby?

Concerning Netflix’s cancellation of “House of Cards”: think of the millions and millions Netflix will be paying out to cast and crew on that show either just starting or in the middle of their contracts. Netflix knew it will be taking a financial bath over this decision. But, they saw public reaction to Harvey Weinstein, Mark Halperin, James Toback, Bill O’Reilly and others take down their careers so Netflix followed suit.

But this brings a thought to mind: why wasn’t this same firestorm of public and media vehement outrage brought to bear on Bill Cosby? Most of the women who have come out with their accusations of being drugged and on some occasions raped have been met mostly with suspicion; their word against hiss. True, Cosby’s career has also been destroyed, but look how many years it took, and he’s still fighting lawsuits. And he still has his reputation and fan base in some regions of this country. Why does he get a pass? Every one of the men I mention has been quickly convicted for their alleged acts of sexual harassment and rapes.

 

With Cosby, for the most part the jury is still out. Why? If all the allegations are true, he is as much or more of a monster than any of those men because he drugged those women to have his way with their unconscious bodies. And like Weinstein and O’Reilly, he has paid out millions of dollars in civil lawsuit settlements with non-disclosure clauses. It’s time to throw him on top the garbage heap, too.

A Fake World Series For The Fake News Network Who Helped Elect The Fake President-In-Chief?

I’m lovin’ me this World Series. It is THE best series we have ever watched. But two nagging concerns are starting to dampen my enthusiasm.

1. Fox HAD two trot out the two Bushies–Dubya and his dad, the Female Posterior Pincher-In-Chief (“Know who my favorite magician is? David Cop-A-Feel”. True quote from GWHB) to throw out the first pitch. As I saw Astros players applauding for the “now” 2nd worst president in modern history and his daddy, the sexual harasser (he thinks his jokes put women at ease and according to one of his aides, some women don’t mind being goosed by the ex-prez when they’re trapped next to him during a photo op) I changed my allegiance and started cheering for the Dodgers. But then the Astros are SO scrappy and competitive and combative I had to swing back to them, damn it!

2. The ball is definitely juiced. Home runs just don’t fly into the stands in those numbers in inside ballparks (the Minute Maid Park roof has been closed) in those numbers, even though there have been a few WS where homers were hit in almost as great a volume. But what is definite (pitchers and pitching coaches from both teams agree) is that the ball is slicker than during the season. It’s made from a different cowskin and the grain is different. Consequently, pitchers can’t grasp it as tightly, even when it’s mudded down by their pitching coaches. So what this means is that for every pitcher where the slider is their bread and butter, they can’t can’t it over the plate for a strike so…they’re not throwing it. Instead we’re seeing only fastballs (including cutters), changeups and curves. And curves have been out of the MLB pitchers’ repertoire for years according to John Smoltz on TV last night. In fact all through the Series he’s been talking about how pitchers haven’t been able to throw sliders. So, the batters basically have only 3 pitches to look for, the ball is juiced, and so they’re jacking more long balls out into the stands.

It makes for an exciting series but now I feel like I’ve been played, as in manipulated. I love home runs but it feels like there are way too many of them in this Series. It lends an aura of fakeness to this Series, but what a metaphor for the guy in the White House that we all have to endure right now, and how ironic that Fox’s “news” division with ITS fake news coverage helped put him there.
