Democracy Can Finally Be Restored With President Joe Biden

Canada will cap the market for handguns

Associated Press reported that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government introduced legislation that would put a freeze on importing, buying or selling handguns.

“It will be illegal to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in Canada,” the prime minister said. Canada already has plans to ban 1,500 types of military-style firearms with legislation requiring that most owners of “military-style assault weapons” turn over their rifles to a government buyback program. The bill would create a new “red flag” law allowing courts to require that people considered a danger to themselves or others surrender their firearms to police. The government said it will require rifle magazines to be permanently altered so they can never hold more than five rounds and will ban the sale and transfer of large-capacity magazines under the Criminal Code.

there's leadership with a brain! An example of "leadership" without a brain is Chicago, where 54 people were shot and 9 killed during the three-day Memorial Day weekend!

Canada already expanded background checks. Trudeau has long had plans to enact tougher gun laws but the introduction of the new measure comes after mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, N.Y., this month.

Canada has had far fewer mass shootings than the U.S. in part because of a lack of easy access to guns.

Trump, the nation's biggest asshole, rejects gun reforms

Twice-impeached Trump, the nation's biggest asshole
who maintained a close relationship with the gun lobby and its activists throughout his presidency, rejected efforts to overhaul gun laws and mocked Democrats and activists calling for change at the "meeting of the mindless," the National Rifle Association's annual convention this past Friday.

Other ignorant people at the NRA convention placed blame on mental health problems and other issues — not guns — for the horrific shooting at the elementary school in Uvalde. Mental health didn't kill those 21 people — an AR-15 assault rifle did — as well as all of the other victims in each of these mass shootings:
  • 5/24/22: Uvalde, TX
  • 5/14/22: Buffalo, NY
  • 3/22/21: Boulder, CO
  • 8/31/19: Odessa, TX
  • 4/27/19: San Diego, CA
  • 10/27/18: Pittsburgh, PA
  • 4/22/18: Nashville, TN
  • 2/14/18: Parkland, FL
  • 11/5/17: Sutherland Springs, TX
  • 10/1/17: Las Vegas, NV
  • 12/2/15: San Bernardino, CA
  • 12/14/12: Newtown, CT
  • 7/20/12: Aurora, CO
  • 3/10/09: Geneva County, AL
It's obvious that ignorance and stupidity are alive and well within the ranks of the NRA. Unfortunately, stupidity is not illegal in the United States.

Right-wing Republican lawmakers accept the slaughter of our children as the new normal!

That headline may seem harsh, but the facts prove that it's absolutely true.
Selfish and self-serving right-wing Republican lawmakers have sold their souls to the gun lobby and are afraid to act on behalf of their constituents who demand change. These spineless lawmakers all parrot the worn out and now meaningless phrase that their "hearts and prayers" go out to the families of the gun violence victims, but they're not willing to grow a backbone and act to do anything about it.

Nothing will change until we change the lawmakers who represent us. The slaughter of our children is the price we must now pay for the failure of these worthless lawmakers to enact change.

There have been
51 school shootings just since 2013, with 94 people killed and 149 injured. These are the ages of the gunmen who committed these shootings:
  • Uvalde: 18 years old
  • Buffalo: 18 years old
  • Parkland: 19 years old
  • Houston: 17 years old
  • Sandy Hook: 20 years old
  • Columbine: 18 & 17 years old
An AR-15 variant was the weapon used in the following mass shootings:
  • 5/24/22: Uvalde, TX
  • 5/14/22: Buffalo, NY
  • 3/22/21: Boulder, CO
  • 8/31/19: Odessa, TX
  • 4/27/19: San Diego, CA
  • 10/27/18: Pittsburgh, PA
  • 4/22/18: Nashville, TN
  • 2/14/18: Parkland, FL
  • 11/5/17: Sutherland Springs, TX
  • 10/1/17: Las Vegas, NV
  • 12/2/15: San Bernardino, CA
  • 12/14/12: Newtown, CT
  • 7/20/12: Aurora, CO
  • 3/10/09: Geneva County, AL
We know how to stop this. Data proves that states with stronger gun laws have less gun death, and states with weak gun laws have more gun death. That is what lawmakers should be acting on. It's all about easy access to guns. These shootings are senseless and preventable, and yet there is no change happening at the legislative level.

"We need to restrict the easy access to guns for anyone, anywhere and anytime. We have to close the loopholes in our laws in background checks. We have to enact red flag laws. We have to require the secure storage of guns," said
Shannon Watts, founder of "Moms Demand Action" on gun control.

New details show the failure by the police and Texas governor Abbott in the handling of the Uvalde elementary school massacre. Therefore, "We can no longer count on good guys with guns stopping bad guys with guns," said Watts.

Just last night six more people were injured by an exchange of gunfire in downtown Chattanooga, TN, where
most of the victims were in their teens or early 20s. A police spokesperson said, "We had large groups of juveniles walking around the downtown area this date and we believe it’s from within that group that the shooting took place." Juveniles with access to guns!

Republicans conveniently want to project mental illness and lack of education as the primary causes of mass shootings. On Friday, at the NRA Convention, Asshole Ted Cruz blamed the shooting in Uvalde on video games, social media, and absence of faith. Nice try, Republicans, but those are empty arguments in that all other countries also have mental illness, a lack of education, video games, social media, and an absence of faith, yet none have the incidences of mass shootings because they don't allow easy access to guns, and especially by children under the age of 21. Period.

Adam Kinzinger (R-Illinois) said he's open to supporting a federal ban on AR-15 rifles. "We have to be coming to the table with ways to mitigate 18-year-olds buying these guns and walking into schools — my side's not doing that," said Kinzinger. We congratulate this legislator who is one of a limited number of Republicans with a brain and common sense!

Ban Assault Rifles and High Capacity Magazines!

In 1994, President Bill Clinton banned assault weapons: mass shooting deaths went down by 42%.

In 2004, the Republican Congress let the ban purposely expire: mass shooting deaths spiked over 220% and have been climbing ever since.

Shootings involving
high capacity magazines — those which hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition — have more fatalities and injuries than those that do not. In mass shootings between 2009 and 2020, high capacity magazines led to FIVE TIMES as many people shot per mass shooting.

Japan has a 13 step process for purchasing a gun, which includes joining a hunting club, interviewing with police officers on why you want a gun, and buying a gun safe. They rarely surpass 10 gun deaths per year. One month after the 2019 mass shooting in Christchurch that left 50 people dead, New Zealand issued a ban on semi-automatic weapons and hasn’t had a mass shooting since. The monster who shot his own grandmother in the face and then killed 21 people in the Uvalde school massacre bought two assault rifles and 375 rounds of ammunition for his 18th birthday.

All we do in America is simply close our eyes while sitting on the toilet and fart out the meaningless tweet about our “thoughts and prayers” being with the victims' families.
It's time we hold every legislator accountable for ACTING on a ban of assault rifles.

Trump and Cruz flat-out lied during their speeches at the NRA convention

Associated Press did a good job in fact checking the speeches of Trump and Cruz at the NRA convention yesterday in Texas.

What do we know?
Trump and Cruz lied!

Cruz said,
"Gun bans do not work. Look at Chicago. If they worked, Chicago wouldn’t be the murder hellhole that it has been for far too long.”

FACT: Chicago hasn’t had a ban on handguns for over a decade. It was the NRA that sued Chicago over its old handgun ban and argued the case before the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled the ban unconstitutional in 2010.

Trump said, “Classroom doors should be hardened to make them lockable from the inside and closed to intruders from the outside.”

FACT: Experts warn that this could backfire in an horrific way. In Uvalde, it kept victims in and police out.

Cruz then lied again when he said, "The rate of gun ownership hasn’t changed."

FACT: The percentage of U.S. households with at least one gun in the home hasn’t significantly changed over the past 50 years. But the number of assault-type rifles used in school shootings has skyrocketed since legislators let a 1994 ban on such weapons expire in 2004.

These worthless Republicans did what they do best: twisted, turned and stretched the truth, or outright lied by design. Par for the course! We can't trust anything that comes out of their mouths.

In addition, low-IQ Trump unforgivably mangled the names of the 19 children killed in the Uvalde massacre
into hardly recognizable syllables in his typical stumbling, juvenile pronunciation, all while being interspersed with the funereal sound of a gong. One critic said Trump's readings of the names sounded like some kind of ceremonial sacrifice to the NRA cult. Others were dumbfounded by Trump’s apparent lack of preparation to read the names of the dead children and their teachers — this is not surprising for you can't fix stupid. Another viewer said, "This sociopath is so self-absorbed and disconnected that he is incapable of understanding the very nature of the vile and detached insult he is conveying to the broken hearted people of Uvalde in their moment of unimaginable grief and sorrow." Twitter users said Trump's sideshow was disgusting and gross.

* * * * *

So far, in 2022, there have already been 214 mass shootings, 27 of which have been in schools. The leading cause of death amongst children and teens is America guns, and our worthless legislators are doing NOTHING to curb the violence.

May 27


You can't fix ignorance and stupidity!

Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has stood up for the National Rifle Association since the shooting, and said that Democrats and the media want to "demonize" the group.

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) called Cruz a "f--king baby killer," tweeting that Cruz was letting "our children get slaughtered."

Cruz responded to the Uvalde shooting by pushing against calls for gun reform, while simultaneously echoing the gun lobby's "good guy with a gun" talking point — or the debunked notion that arming more people could help prevent mass shootings.

Another worthless legislator,
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado), said the massacre at the Texas school in Uvalde is not a reason for greater gun control. It's time to vote Boebert out of office.

You can't fix stupidity!

Studies have shown that states with stricter gun laws see
fewer gun deaths. And though polling has consistently shown that most voters on both sides of the aisle support policies such as expanding background checks, Republicans in Congress have consistently blocked efforts to pass legislation along these lines.

National Rifle Association: mentally stable? Hardly!

The NRA feels it's necessary to have security at its Houston convention this weekend with a
new security plan. Why? They're already the ones with the guns. If the NRA's members attending the convention are all so mentally stable and of sound mind, they should feel well protected with all those gun-slinging members in the same room. Let twice-impeached Trump, Ted Cruz, and Kristi Noem take their chances getting on stage and giving speeches without fear with an audience made up of their beloved gun-toting supporters and campaign donors.

But these hypocritical legislators won't do that, and for good reason — they know
the NRA members are not mentally stable and of sound mind! This oxymoronic situation would be laughable if it wasn't so pathetic.

Even the planned entertainment has pulled out of the concert scheduled for the convention. Don McLean, Larry Gatlin, Larry Stewart, T. Graham Brown, Danielle Peck, and Lee Greenwood have all canceled, as Lee Greenwood said, "
out of respect for those mourning the loss of those innocent children and teachers in Uvalde."

Daniel Defense, the Georgia-based gun manufacturer that manufactured the assault weapon used in the Uvalde massacre, shut down its social media accounts after being linked to the massacre and also dropped out of the NRA convention where it planned to hold an exhibitor's booth. This firm is made up of deep-pocketed Republican donors, Marvin and Cindy Daniel, who donated more than $70,000 directly to GOP candidates for federal office this election cycle, including $20,000 to Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Steve Scalise (R-La.); and $100,000 last year to a PAC backing incumbent Republican senators! None of their contributions have gone to Democrats.
Daniel Defense buys votes! Predictably, the firm issued the now too common statement that has lost all meaning, namely that its "thoughts and prayers" go out to the families.

But the NRA convention itself goes on. Very sad.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said, "You can’t pray and send condolences on one day and then be going and championing guns on the next. That’s wrong.”

The NRA is obviously made up of a group of bottom feeders. This is not about second amendment gun rights. It's about the callousness and lack of compassion being shown by a selfish and self-centered group at a time when the families of children gunned down by a gun-toting monster haven't even had a chance to lay their children to rest.

This uncultured pig will still speak at the NRA's annual meeting

In spite of 19 elementary school children and two teachers having just been gunned down just a few hundred miles away, with another 17 having been wounded, Trump, the ignorant asshole who cares only about himself and no one else, still plans to speak at the NRA's annual meeting in Houston tomorrow. The bodies of those school children haven't even been laid to rest, and this uncultured pig will use his bully pulpit to advance his personal agenda and tout more of his baseless claims about election fraud.

Other worthless, do-nothing legislators who still plan to speak at the NRA meeting include Texas Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem. Republican assholes like these have time to speak at a pro-gun meeting of prospective campaign donors, but no time to enact legislation for gun reform measures or to expand mandatory background checks. 169 people have now been killed in shootings connected to schools and colleges since the 1999 shooting in Columbine, and yet our legislators have done nothing to prevent them from continuing to happen.

Assholes like this are what is wrong with America!

Americans are tired of constantly hearing that "our thoughts and prayers" are with the families of the victims while our legislators sit with their thumbs up their asses and do absolutely nothing about gun violence except babble on about how "something must be done." Nothing is getting done, and nothing will get done until we vote these assholes out of office and put legislators with a backbone to act in their place.

Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter was murdered in the mass shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in 2018 said it best in reference to both Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott when he said, "You are who you are. You are as low of a human being as can be."

Well said, Mr. Guttenberg.

The most ignorant voters in America live in Georgia!

Marjorie Taylor Greene (aka "Klan Mom"), the neo-Nazi QAnon Bitch and Trump ass-sniffer,
beat out five primary challengers to defend her seat in Congress yesterday. Trump set the model in 2016, and his followers are perfecting it — never let a scandal get in the way of winning an election.

This worthless bitch posted a pro-gun tweet after yesterday's elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that killed 19 children and 2 adults.

Last May Greene invoked the Holocaust while condemning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to require lawmakers to don masks. Greene has pushed a number of other conspiracy theories, some rooted in anti-Semitism like her baseless suggestion that a global cabal used a 
space laser to start California wildfires.

Greene has been a disgrace to her office and a disservice to her constituents. She made headlines during her 2020 campaign over her musings on QAnon. She claimed that January 6 was an “inside job” and a “Fed-surrection.” She said that joining the U.S. military was “like throwing your life away.” She spoke at the America First Political Action Conference, a white-nationalist gathering organized by a Holocaust denier. And of course, Greene promoted Trump's baseless theories that the 2020 election was stolen.

And yet
the ignorant people of Georgia picked this LOSER as their Republican candidate for reelection to Congress. This is the "trailer trash" representation America gets when eligible voters fail to educate themselves.

Asshole Trump, Idiot Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and Brainless Ted Cruz to speak at NRA conference 72 hours after elementary school shooting

The only thing worse than "low class" is "no class," and that's exactly what we've got with Trump, Abbott, and Cruz, three meritless Republicans who are slated to speak at the National Rifle Association's annual meeting in Houston starting this Friday, barely
three days after at least 19 people were killed by an 18-year-old gunman at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. Earlier this year, the Institute for Legislative Action, the NRA's lobbying arm, endorsed Abbott's campaign for reelection.

The scheduled speakers include:
No Democrats will be addressing the meeting.

Ignorant Republicans want more loyalty to Citizen Trump

Business Insider reported that CBS News poll finds most people are not happy with the direction of the country, with neither political party providing much solace. Fifty-two percent of Republicans (i.e. the obviously ignorant 52%) said they want to hear more about loyalty to Trump, the twice-impeached malignant narcissist loser, even though the GOP is described more often as "extreme" and "hateful" than as "caring" — by double digits. However, it's important to understand that nearly half of the Republicans don't want to hear more about loyalty to Trump.

Today's primaries across the South could represent the clearest chance for Republican voters to break with Trump. In Georgia, where Trump turned the state into the centerpiece of his effort to punish Republicans who rejected his lies about widespread election fraud, governor Brian Kemp will most likely hand Trump his biggest ballot box rejection yet. A Kemp victory would set up a rematch between the Republican governor and Democrat Stacey Abrams, who is poised to win her party's nomination.

Today's primary in Georgia is the first major test of the restrictive voting law that Georgia Republicans enacted in 2021. The law imposes new identification requirements for mail-in ballots and bars election officials from sending out mail-in ballot applications to those who haven't specifically requested them; it also restricts the use of drop-boxes for those ballots. Additionally, it makes it illegal to provide food and water to people waiting in line to vote. Republicans enacted the law amid Trump's baseless lies about widespread fraud.

People in Trump-backing counties are twice as likely to die of COVID

National Public Radio examined deaths from COVID-19 per 100,000 people in roughly 3,000 counties across the country from May 2021, a time when most Americans could obtain vaccines. It found that people living in counties that voted 60% or higher for Trump in 2020 had 2.26 times the death rate of counties that voted in comparable percentages for Biden. Counties with a higher share of Trump votes had even higher mortality rates.

Conclusion: Trump supporters are stupid and aren't getting vaccinated. Statistics gathered in various studies have consistently demonstrated significantly higher COVID-19 cases and death rates in Republican areas over Democratic areas. According to analysis released by Brown University this month, nearly 320,000 lives nationwide could have been saved if more people had chosen to get vaccinated.

We have the proven vaccines and treatments to prevent people from dying of COVID, but unfortunately we still have ignorant people in Trump-supporting red states who believe the lies instead of the proven science, and who are continuing the spread of this pandemic.
Stupidity is not illegal in the United States.

Trump Cultist Mike Lindell Gets Sanctioned

Insider has reported that a federal judge dealt a win to Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell by dismissing "frivolous" and "groundless" counter-suits Lindell had filed against both companies, and ordered Lindell to pay legal fees for Smartmatic's case against him so far.

In his baseless lawsuits, Lindell repeated
Trump's election fraud lies and alleged in filings that Smartmatic and Dominion were owned by Chinese nationals.

Lindell vows to appeal.

Another brown-nosing Trump LOSER vows vengeance!

Madison Cawthorn is an ass-sniffing Trump cultist congressman from North Carolina who was defeated in his primary bid.

As a result of being a LOSER, Cawthorn is now vowing vengeance with a “Dark MAGA” takeover. Cawthorn's allies are the likes of other losers, such as Trump and Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Matt Gaetz (R-FL).

Cawthorn wrote that he is “on a mission” aimed at ending “gentile politics. It’s time for the rise of the new right, it’s time for Dark MAGA to truly take command.” The so-called “Dark MAGA” movement, with its aesthetic promoting nationalist and neo-Nazi imagery, calls for Trump to return to power in order to exact revenge on his enemies.

Since leaving office, Trump has 
continued to spread lies about the 2020 election despite audits in 39 states and more than 60 courts confirming the results.

Trump and his band of ignorant cultists (aka supporters), the likes of Cawthorn, Greene, Gaetz, and far-right supporters who continue to believe his lies, need to be suppressed and eliminated from American democracy.

9 Republicans voted against a bill to help poor families buy baby formula!

These nine worthless Republicans voted against a bill in Congress that would help lower-income women secure baby formula for their children:
  • Andy Biggs
  • Lauren Boebert
  • Thomas Massie
  • Clay Higgins
  • Matt Gaetz
  • Chip Roy
  • Paul Gosar
  • Louie Gohmert
  • Marjorie Taylor Greene (the QAnon Bitch)
Separately, 192 Republicans voted 'no' on a bill to staff up the FDA to help manage formula supply. It was another inept Republican, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, who urged Republican members to vote 'no' on this bill.

Let's all remember to vote 'no' when these worthless legislators come up for re-election!

Trump The Tyrant is already claiming election fraud

Trump is claiming without any evidence that electoral fraud is afoot in Pennsylvania's Senate primary, and that his endorsed candidate, Dr. Oz, should stave it off by illegally declaring victory in the still unsettled race.

"Dr. Oz should declare victory," Trump wrote in the post. "It makes it much harder for them to cheat with the ballots that they 'just happened to find.'"
What his statement makes clear is that Trump hasn't learned any lessons from the 2020 election.

The Point: All Trump cares about in both politics and in life is winning — at all costs. Even if it undermines the public's faith in the political process. Twice-impeached Trump is nothing but a pathetic loser and liar who should be spending the rest of his life in a cage for his traitorous crimes against the United States of America.

This Lowlife Loudmouth Liar Is Back On

Trump, the Lowlife Loudmouth Liar who said he wouldn't go back to Twitter, is back on Twitter.

The twice-impeached malignant narcissist is reposting all of his messages from his own lying platform, Truth Social, under the new Twitter profile “President Donald J. Trump’s Truth Social Posts.”

The tweets available Monday included 210 messages the lying bastard posted on Truth Social since February. His new Twitter account is only for his messages on Truth Social and others he has chosen to “

Trump is so very stupid he doesn't even realize "retruth" isn't even a word in the dictionary.

$4,995 to listen to this pig squeal?

Business Insider has reported that Trump is charging $4,995 to his incredibly stupid cult members (aka supporters) to listen to him babble at one of his American Freedom Tour rallies, which are dubbed as "a celebration of faith, family, unalienable rights and God-given American freedoms." Your $4,995 also includes a photo-op with the twice-impeached idiot's dumb little pork chop, Donald Trump, Jr.

Just how dumb does one have to be to fork over even a penny to listen to this idiot babble on about his claims of losing the 2020 election and the rest of his lies? When did this level of stupidity set in? As P.T. Barnum said, "There's a sucker born every minute."

At last night's rally, Trump made quick mention of the mass shooting in Buffalo, NY. But he did so in an attempt to compare the killings to false information about American military deaths in Afghanistan, saying, "
In 18 months in Afghanistan, we lost nobody." FALSE — more of this malignant narcissist's lies. In 2020, 11 military deaths were recorded in Afghanistan. Throughout the final 18 months of Trump's presidency, a total of 22 US service members were reported dead in Afghanistan. Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California, an Air Force Reserve Command colonel, wrote, "Trump is a liar and disrespects the 64 brave US servicemembers who died under his watch in Afghanistan by ignoring their deaths in his statement: 11 in 2020; 24 in 2019; 14 in 2018; 15 in 2017." Trump lies and lies and lies and lies; and yet very stupid people pay to hear these lies.

Republicans now try to blame President Biden for baby formula shortage

The worthless Republicans, who have no viable agenda, no platform, no plan, and no leader, are now trying to blame President Biden for the current baby formula shortage.
Republicans only have what they've always had — baseless complaints — but no solutions. This is in addition to their complaints about high inflation, expensive gas, violent crime, and immigrant border crossings. Pay particular attention to the FACT that these whiners and complainers have no solutions. And where were these Republicans a week before the baby formula issue hit the national news? Answer: Aimlessly wandering about in search of another issue to blame on Democrats.

There has been a recent safety recall of baby formula, in addition to ongoing supply chain issues, but that doesn't seem to matter to the Republicans. They learned from Trump, their twice-impeached cult leader, how to project blame on anything and anyone other than the real cause to twist and turn the truth for their own political gain. Notice that the Republicans aren't interested in a solution to the problem — they're only interested in projecting blame on the Democrats with their "ultra MAGA" (Megalomaniac Assholes Get Angry) scheme.

The Republicans have proven that they're a worthless group of do-nothings.

DeSantis = Communist?

Cuban born and educated Fabiola Santiago, in an op-ed in the
Miami Herald, compares the hallmark practices of the Communist Party-led regime in Cuba with the same manipulative tactics that are now pillars of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ public education system in Florida — book-banning, censorship, and added into the mix this week, state-mandated school indoctrination for political purposes. These are hallmark practices of the Communist Party-led regime in Cuba — tools used for six decades to keep Cubans isolated and in the dark about information that falls outside of what the ruling party’s ideology commands people to believe.

The same manipulative tactics are now pillars of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ public education system.

Math textbooks and literary books are being 
banned because of pressure from “Moms for Liberty,” made up of citizens jazzed and empowered by Republicans into a state of hysteria — deemed these books inappropriate. Educators are being censored and handed guidelines, embedded into law, about what they’re allowed to say and not say to students on race or gender identity.

Public school teachers in Florida will be required to dedicate at least 45 minutes of instruction on Nov. 7th, Victims of Communism Day, to Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Fidel Castro, as well as to the “poverty, starvation, migration, systemic lethal violence and suppression of speech” that people endured under their regimes. Yet the same students can’t be taught about the “poverty, starvation, migration, systemic lethal violence and suppression of speech” to which Blacks have been — and still are — subjected to in this country.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. Communism is alive and well in DeSantis' Florida.

Trump's ratfuckers were interested in anything except counting all the votes in the 2020 election

U.S. District Judge David Carter stated that Trump's sprawling post-election campaign to throw out the results of the election in order to stay in power was "a coup in search of a legal theory." Trump's ratfuckers began with a conclusion and then went spelunking for evidence.

Esquire, in its article by Jack Holmes titled, "Please, Sir, Can We Just Count All the Votes?," stated that Senator Mike Lee and Congressman Chip Roy begged White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to provide "ammo" and "a strategy to keep things alive and put several states back in play." In other words, they had no evidence of fraud, but needed excuses to keep going.

Politico published a new batch of emails yesterday from Trump cultist John Eastman, who previously drew up a detailed plan for Vice President Mike Pence to throw out the results of an American presidential election — that is, to throw out the votes of American citizens — and install Trump in power against the expressed will of the American people. Eastman urged Pennsylvania state Republican legislators to retabulate the votes in that state to make Trump the winner. Eastman believed the Pennsylvania legislature had the power to throw out the Biden electors — the ones based on the full tally of votes cast in the state — and appoint phony Trump electors. This is the kind of worthless scum we have in the legislature. Thankfully, these demonic Trump cultists lost every court case at both the state and federal levels, before judges appointed by both Republicans and Democrats.

This Asshole sees Vengeance on the political horizon

This asshole has resumed holding nationwide rallies, and his message is that he's coming back with a vengeance with a lot of political payback.

This is what demented, malignant narcissists do — they exact revenge on those who oppose them. An eye for an eye. It's one of their guiding principles. "He’s on his revenge tour, for people who dared to vote for impeachment," said former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.

“If somebody hits you, you’ve got to hit ’em back five times harder than they ever thought possible. You’ve got to get even. Get even,” Trump said.

Trump is a very sick puppy who belongs locked in a cage for his traitorous actions against the United States of America.

5/12/22 UPDATE
The New York Times reported that the Department of Justice has opened a grand jury investigation related to Trump's alleged mishandling of classified documents, following the revelation in February that he had brought boxes of documents home to his Mar-a-Lago estate when he left the White House.

Trump's cultist, the QAnon Bitch, betrays the teachings of Jesus!

Marjorie Taylor Greene (aka "Perjury Taylor Greene"), the QAnon Bitch, said in an
official statement that "Satan's controlling the church." The evidence she gave for such satanic control? Christian groups who provide aid to undocumented immigrants.

Greene's statements illustrate how messages of fear, deception, hypocrisy and hate can often triumph over Jesus' message of love. Greene, along with Trump and his other supporters, thrive on viciousness against people they deem "outsiders" and use as scapegoats. This cruelty binds Trump and his supporters into a "community" fueled by the fear, deception and hatred that celebrates punitive actions against marginalized people.

Ignorance, deception, and hate run deep within the Republican party.

The Washington Post wins the 2022 Pulitzer Prize!

The Washington Post won the 2022 Pulitzer Prize in Public Service, one of the highest distinctions in the U.S. for journalism, literature, and music, for its compellingly told and vividly presented account of the Jan. 6th storming of the U.S. Capitol, providing the public with a thorough and unflinching understanding of one of the nation’s darkest days. This was the sixth time The Washington Post has won the Pulitzer Prize for public service.

Republicans pick an accused woman groper for Nebraska primary!

Charles Herbster, a Republican businessman, cattle breeder, and accused woman groper is Trump's pick for governor in Nebraska, where Trump held a rally for him earlier this month.
Fellow woman gropers stick together, folks.

The Nebraska Examiner interviewed six women who claimed Herbster had groped their buttocks, outside of their clothes, during political events or beauty pageants. A seventh woman said Herbster once cornered her privately and kissed her forcibly. One of the accusers, Republican state Sen. Julie Slama, said Herbster reached up her skirt and touched her inappropriately at the Douglas County Republican Party’s annual Elephant Remembers dinner in 2019.

This is the kind of scum that Republicans pick to represent them.

This is what Republicans put up for office!

The Hill has reported that a man in prison on charges of murdering his wife won a Boone County, Ind., town board primary election Thursday.

The man is accused of murdering his wife, who had just finished chemotherapy treatments for cancer, and dumping her dead body in a nearby creek. He told police that he hit his wife in the face with a cement flower pot before dumping her body in the creek. He won 21.74% of the vote for Clinton Township Board representative, becoming one of three winners in the Republican primary.

This is the kind of human waste product that Republicans put up for office, and even more amazing is that this is the kind of person that Republicans vote for!

Bigoted white evangelicals fuel Trump's 'Big Lie'

Forget Jesus Christ and the "good news" about salvation. All across red state America, the true faith of evangelical churches lately often seems more about Trump and trumpeting his 'Big Lie.'

From Rudy Giuliani sweating through his hair dye to Steve Bannon's self-aggrandizing to the hard-drinking Proud Boys, the face of Trump's 'Big Lie' is that of the all-American dirtbag, someone who is more likely to be out on Saturday harassing women in bars than up early on Sunday for church. But while those figures certainly get attention, the larger threat to democracy likely comes from the well-organized, well-funded white evangelical movement, which has managed to reorganize itself around Trump's 'Big Lie' out of the glare of much mainstream media attention.

From the beginning, the religious right was the backbone of Trump's 'Big Lie.' Popular religious right figures were responsible for sending thousands of people to the Capitol to do Trump's bidding. Since then, the Christian nationalist devotion to the Big Lie has only grown stronger. Six out of 10 white evangelicals claim Biden stole the 2020 election, compared to 37% of white Christians from mainline churches.

The enthusiasm for the 'Big Lie' among white evangelicals comes back primarily to one thing: Racism. It's in the DNA of the white evangelical culture.

78% of white evangelicals agreed with the statement that "America is in danger of losing its culture and identity."
Scrape away the easily disproven conspiracy theories about voting machines and stolen ballots and what you're left with is the animating belief of the 'Big Lie,' which is that conservative white people are entitled to rule, no matter what. These are ignorant, racist people.

The 'Big Lie' is about preserving white supremacy, even if the cost is ending democracy.

The truth is that white evangelicals are, in fact, 
a shrinking portion of the American public. It's because of evangelicals' own intolerance and bigotry. While white evangelicals are embracing conspiracy theories, Trumpism, and, ultimately, a war on democracy itself, younger Americans thankfully aren't buying their bullshit.

This Asshole Belongs Behind Bars!

USA Today has reported that Trump asked ex-Defense Secretary Mark Esper if they could shoot protesters who had gathered around the White House after Minneapolis police killed George Floyd! "Can't you just shoot them? Just shoot them in the legs or something," Trump said, according to the Axios report on Esper's new book, A Sacred Oath, being released on May 10th.

The book claims Trump, "red faced and complaining loudly about the protests," asked Esper about shooting protesters as they sat in the Oval Office. Axios reported that "nearly three dozen 4-star generals, senior civilians, and some Cabinet members" reviewed the book.

This is the kind of unhinged deviate who acted as the 45th president. He most definitely belongs behind bars!
