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.

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.

Trump Is A Sideshow Distraction, The Kochs And Their Ilk Are The Real Danger To Our Democracy

I’ve been saying this for months now. The Republicans already control Congress, the White House, SCOTUS, and have gained virtual control of the election process nationally and in most states.

Now their bosses, the Koch Brothers and others like them, having targeted the federal judiciary system. If they are successful, the Democrats will never, ever win back anything again and no “liberal” laws will ever be enacted. Those in effect now that the Kochs oppose will be struck down in the lower courts or be declared unconstitutional by the Koch employees on SCOTUS.

Stop focusing exclusively on the idiocy of Trump. It’s now clear he was intentionally put into office not only to do their bidding but mainly as a sideshow distraction.

The Kochs and their ilk have been pursuing this complete takeover for the past 45 years. They’ve been unwittingly aided and abetted by the neoliberals who seized control of the Democratic Party: the Carters, the Clintons, the Obamas, the Nacy Pelosis, the Debbie Wasserman Schulltzes, the Chuck Shumers, the Harry Reids, the Heidi Heitcamps, the John Warners, the Joe Manchins, the Jon Testers, the Chris Dodds, the Barney Franks, the congressional Black Caucus who backed Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, etc.are all responsible for this. All the center of right gutless wonders who converted the Democratic Party into the Republican Lite Party.

We’re now paying for the fixation on building their own financial success as they pursued business-friendly legislation and warmongering at the expense of working to help make this country and the lives of the people who voted them into office better. If the Republicans are successful in further marginalizing and castrating the Democratic Party into total governmental impotence, then it will be our children and the ensuing generations to come who will continue to pay the price as well. I place full blame for the current state of this country, not on the Republicans but on the Democratic Party who enabled this to happen.

 

Rand Paul: Putting Republicans Before Country And The Constitution

“I just don’t think it’s useful to be doing investigation after investigation, particularly of your own party,..we’ll never even get started with doing the things we need to do like repealing Obamacare if we’re spending our whole time having Republicans investigate Republicans. I think it makes no sense.”

Rand Paul just outed himself. As a US Senator he puts Republicans before country. To him it makes no sense to investigate the first president who is possibly guilty of treasonous collusion with a foreign leader–Vladimir Putin of Russia–as a presidential candidate and president-elect for personal gain and to avoid being blackmailed. But it makes perfect sense to deprive 20 million Americans–many of them families too poor to afford healthcare and adults with pre-existing conditions which made them lepers to health insurance corporations.

So Paul is on record as being out there. Solely out there in the Senate for his political party and not for his constituents, his country, and the US Constitution. That’s pretty short-sighted for a guy who used to be an ophthalmologist, don’t you think? And the tragic irony in all of this is that Kentucky voters likely to continue to be as self-centered and myopic as Paul when he runs for reelection.

It’s A Third World (Country) After All

money-bags-500x390

Today the United States of America officially downgraded itself to the status of a third world country. In my opinion, we have white male billionaire (and lowly multimillionaire) crooks and thugs in total charge of the government. And just like many third world country governments I think these men will rob us blind to enrich themselves and fill their own offshore, tax-free coffers. I think cutting federal spending by $10 trillion over the next ten years by dismantling or diminishing almost every program and agency that benefits the low income and outright poor, the sick, the environment, arts and culture, food, product, and workplace safety, When Janet Yellen’s term as Fed Reserve chair has expired Donald Trump will replace her with yet another white male billionaire. He will control the entire economic system of our country from top to bottom, enabling him and his cronies to hide the robbery of public funds from the Treasury.

As I’ve written before, we don’t recover from this. Now that certain elements within the GOP have perfected how to steal a national election, they’ll never lose another one. If somehow they are defeated in a future election, the social, economic and social damage began by Trump and continued by subsequent Republican administrations will be so great there will be no fixing it. there will be no reversing it any time soon after that, I put the timeline at about maybe 20 years or so. By that time, thanks to all the environmental protection dismantling by Trump, life on earth may be about over anyway thanks to the increase in the earth’s temperature. But I guess all you Trump voters will be happy as a clam, pleased as pumpkins, especially if the Republicans are still in power. Better Red (under a Republican government) AND dead than Blue (under a Democratic government) and alive.

The Purple (Blue and Red combined) Yolk’s On Us

Our country is now Humpty Dumpty (wish we had a real egghead as president but we’ve just the opposite) fallen from the wall and there’s no putting it back together again even into the fragmented mess it was before.

It’s clear to me the Democratic Party remains too clueless to ever learn how to communicate with what’s left of its traditional base that they didn’t disenfranchise with its elitist, right wing alignment with the wealthy elite who took over the party over the past 40 years. The Party killed itself off by no longer remaining relevant to the base it once championed and represented.

The Republicans, on the other hand, perfected the ability to promise their deluded working class and low income people among its voter base everything and deliver nothing while incomprehensibly earning the enthusiastic support and continuing votes from that base. “Take away my job and my health care? Yes, sir, may I lose another?!” It’s the battered spouse syndrome applied to an entire nation. It’s easy to do when you smack someone across the mouth and convince them it was someone with a different skin color, ethnicity, and liberal political orientation what done it.

So, everyone continue to fight among yourselves. I’m through with this insane train ride. Next stop, Willoughby (Twilight Zone reference). This is where I get off.

Rand Paul: Tea Party Head Mad Hatter

Rassmussen Reports just released one of its famously pro-Republican polls

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2014/senate/co/colorado_senate_gardner_vs_udall-3845.html

showing a virtual tie in the Colorado U.S. Senate Race between Democratic incumbent Mark Udall and Republican challenger Corey Gardner and, coincidentally (?), NPR News runs a  tory primarily to make Republican challenger Corey Gardner a national name in pursuit of the NPR News campaign to convince the American voter that this is the year of the Republicans.

http://www.npr.org/2014/03/13/289750656/republican-candidate-heats-up-colorado-s-u-s-senate-race

After all, NPR trashes Obamacare at least weekly, and now almost daily (and several times daily) mentioning Rand Paul’s name and frequently accompanying it with a sound bite. There are 45 Republicans in the U.S. Senate but from NPR News you’d think that Paul is the only saying or thinking anything important because he’s about the only one in heavy radio rotation.  So Ted Cruz is now SO last year’s chopped liver for wrapping himself around and making himself the voice and voice of the GOP/Tea Party’s federal government shutdown. And Marco Rubio? He’s got the charisma of any fresh-faced little boy who looks like he’s wearing his father’s U.S. Senator’s clothes.

It’s been decided somewhere that Rand Paul needs to be pushed into the psyche of the American public and as frequently as possible. For what purpose, I don’t know—yet.  He’s not up for reelection until 2016 and two years from how he’s got as much chance of getting the Republican nomination for president as he has getting elected president this year.  To show how little chance the guy has to send out bids on a new design for the Oval Office rug, his GOP buddies in the Kentucky state senate are pushing a bill that would allow him to be on the 2016 state ballot as candidate for both president and reelection to the US Senate (much like Wisconsin state law enabled Paul Ryan to lose his VP bid and still keep his day job in Congress in 2012).  The state House of Representatives doesn’t like that idea so much and will most likely shoot it down if it passes the state senate.

It’s perfectly plausible that Paul has been positioned to be the once and future Head Mad Hatter of the Tea Party at a time when the Karl Roves of the GOP are attempting to separate and isolate it from the mainstream party because frankly, my dear, most Republican voters don’t give a damn about the Tea Party (except when it shuts down the federal government and then the word “damn” is heard a lot preceding the words “tea party”) except in the smallest and poorest Southern states with the highest numbers of uneducated people in America.  Rove once had pull in the GOP until his meal ticket ran out of presidential terms and he had to settle for a new career as PAC Man.  The meal ticket’s brother, Jeb, is undoubtedly planned by Rove to be his entrée to eight more years of White House entrées in 2016.

So, with Jeb in the top ticket slot, who would be the chosen one to slide into the number two spot? Hmmm, the name is on the tip of my psyche…Rand Paul.  It now all makes sense.  In front of closed doors guys like Rove decry how the Tea Party is destroying the GOP.  But behind closed doors perhaps Paul’s name was bandied about as a sure way to bring the Tea Party—and its voter base—back  into the fold and under control of the mainstream Republican Party.  The GOPowers-that-be may be willing to risk a Rand Paul presidency if it gets them a Jeb Bush presidency first.

So in the pursuit of that end, the orders went out to the subsidiary media outlets like Fox, CNN and NPR to put Rand Paul in heavy rotation and to keep his erstwhile rivals out of the limelight.  Too many choices make tea partiers nervous.  They like to keep things simple, you know.
