Sue! Sue! Sue!
Sooeey! Sooeey! Sooeey!
Trump, the Pig in a Poke, is preparing to sue to block the release of White House records from his administration to the House select committee scrutinizing the January 6th attack on the Capitol by claiming executive privilege. He also said he would cite executive privilege to thwart House select committee investigators seeking to compel his top aides to testify about the January 6th insurrection.
Once again, Trump can only get others to fight his battles for him because he has no talent to do so himself.
If he wasn’t guilty, Trump would have no reason to stop the House select committee’s investigation.
Someone needs to remind Citizen Trump that he is no longer in office. He no longer has any power of executive privilege. As president, Joe Biden retains the final authority over whether to assert the protection for specific documents, meaning that he can instruct the White House counsel, Dana Remus, to allow their release even over Trump’s objections.
The Only Fraud Is Trump
Newsweek has reported that in remarks to a conservative media network, Trump repeated his baseless, worn-out conspiracy theories yet again that claim he will quickly regain the presidency “due to tremendous voter fraud” if it were a possibility. It’s the “Big Lie” from the “Big Fraud.”
There is no legal pathway for Trump to be declared the winner — thank goodness it’s not a possibility. The only fraud is Trump himself — an unqualified, twice-impeached “pretend” president and mentally deranged cult leader who bullshit his way into office with lies and without credentials.
No credible evidence of substantial voter fraud has been uncovered in the more than 10 months since Trump lost the 2020 presidential election to President Joe Biden, while the election results have long since been certified and finalized. As a matter of fact, the results of ALL the election recounts and audits have only presented further evidence confirming President Biden's victory.
A recent CNN poll found that nearly 6 in 10 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents said "believing that Trump won the 2020 election" was "very" or "somewhat" important to their definition of what it now means to be a Republican. The Republican party has now become a sad “fringe” vs. mainstream group of ignorant, ass-sniffing Trump cult followers.
Trump is a sorry, sick, and mentally ill malignant narcissist and LOSER.
Trump surpasses Benedict Arnold as America’s most notorious traitor
CNN host Jake Tapper warned that Trump likely isn't done trying to overthrow the constitutional order of the United States government.
In a Georgia rally over this past weekend, Trump doubled down on his baseless and false claims about the 2020 election.
Democratic strategist Michael Starr Hopkins warned that Trump has succeeded in making American elections illegitimate in the eyes of his ignorant supporters in the wake of his 2020 defeat at the hands of President Joe Biden.
“Trump has spent his entire career trying to delegitimize the press and now delegitimize the government,” Hopkins said.
Trump belongs locked in a small cage.
Carjackers got what they deserved
In Hoffman Estates, IL, a suburb of Chicago, two 16-year-old carjackers were shot by the carjacking victim who had a valid concealed carry permit.
Illinois law prohibits any person under age 18 from possessing a handgun, and the possession of any gun in Illinois requires a valid Firearm Owners Identification card (FOID), obtainable only by persons 21 years old or older. So what were these thugs doing with guns and where did they get them? And what were teens doing out at 05:40AM on a school night? We not only have a teen carjacking problem, we have a parent problem.
There have been 1,204 vehicular hijackings reported so far this year in Chicago, putting the city on pace to surpass last year’s total of 1,417. The 2020 total more than doubled the number seen in 2019. The police, in spite of their baseless claims to the contrary, are obviously completely ineffective in dealing with this increasing problem.
Justice was appropriately meted out by the victim of the crime!
Asshole Trump tries to decertify the GA election again
CNN reported that Trump, the twice-impeached LOSER, wrote a letter to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger asking him to decertify the results of the 2020 Georgia election using all kinds of worn-out, debunked, fantasy claims. We’re not surprised since Trump is a mentally ill, psychopathic narcissist, but the saddest part is that there are members of Trump’s cult, namely his ignorant supporters, who listen to and buy into this shit. The Georgia election has already been certified, audited, and recounted three times. The true winner is still Joe Biden, with zero evidence of any election fraud. Trump cares nothing about the rule of law. Trump is a LOSER in the election and in life.
Remember, Americans, Trump is already under a formal criminal investigation in Georgia for trying to muscle officials to overturn the election there. This is just another attempt by the malignant narcissist to keep his name in the limelight, propagate “the Big Lie,” subvert democracy, destroy confidence in the election process, and garner support from his ignorant supporters.
Mary Trump, the ex-president’s niece, said, “I think he is a loser, and he is going to throw anything against the wall he can. It’s desperation. The walls are closing in and he is throwing anything against the wall that he thinks will stick. As is always the case with Donald, he’ll try and change the subject.”
Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell said, “Sucking up to Donald Trump is not a strategy that works.”
Don’t ever forget that it was Trump who sought illicit foreign help in his election and fomented an insurrection against his own government. Trump, the traitor, must be prosecuted for his crimes against America.
Pre-order Raffensperger’s new book, Integrity Counts, here.
“Brad Raffensperger put public service above party service, and for that he is a true democracy action hero, and he is also my hero. His book serves as a reminder that American democracy is bigger than any individual candidate or election.” (Arnold Schwarzenegger, former governor of California)
The Cult of Trump
(Weak, Stupid, Non-Thinking People)
Cult leaders are usually egotistical psychopaths and/or sociopaths with a desire for power and often take ideas from politics, religion and psychology to fulfill their selfish, evil purposes. Through mind control, they are able to filter their thoughts and behaviors into fanatical faith and belief among gullible followers. They have no moral compass. They live in their own altered sense of reality. They lie, cheat, and twist the truth for their own self-aggrandizement.
Weak, impressionable, gullible non-thinkers are ripe for being easily influenced by these psychopaths; and when these psychopaths are also incurable malignant narcissists, it’s like the sun, moon and stars have all come together to create the perfect storm and spell disaster. Add social media into the mix to spread psychopaths’ lies instead of getting factual news from responsible news channels, and falsehoods like Trump’s “Big Lie” propagate as fast as the coronavirus.
This is exactly what has happened in this country during Trump’s presidency. Trump’s easily influenced supporters have clearly joined his egotistical, self-serving cult and are drinking his toxic Kool-Aid. The Republican party once stood for intellectual depth and philosophical consistency, respect for ideas and elevated rhetoric, civility and personal grace. Once known for common sense, the GOP (Grand Old Party) has now devolved into a state of incendiary and apocalyptic rhetoric, and thoughtless and reckless actions.
During Trump’s term as president, it became fashionable for the Republican Party to replace reason with rage, to deny science when it was at odds with ideology and to cheer mindless stunts like shutting down the federal government rather than responsibly managing it. Ignoring the foundation on which America was built, Trump’s Republican party is a toxic, negative, bullying party that has done more damage to democracy in four years than any other administration in the previous 250 years.
Incompetence is running rampant with non-thinking voters considering electing the likes of sick and mentally twisted QAnon advocates including Georgia’s Marjorie Taylor Greene, JR Majewski who breached police barricades during Trump’s “Stop the Steal” insurrection, gun-loving Rep. Lauren Boebert, “Q patriot” Reba Sherrill, convicted stalker and Trump-loving insurrectionist Omar Navarro, and Oregon’s Jo Rae Perkins. Thirty-six QAnon supporters in 17 states currently intend to run for Congress in 2022, with many of them now trying to hide and distance themselves from the QAnon branding in order to appear to be more mainstream and “electable.”
Don’t be fooled, America. Trumpism is a cancer that is spreading through the Republican party and which must be eliminated. Remember, you can sugar-coat shit, but underneath it’s still shit.
Trump is in serious mental decline
CNN has reported that in Peril, a new book by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa available on 9/21/21, the transition from Trump to President Joseph R. Biden Jr. is described as one of the most dangerous periods in American history. Why? Because General Mark Milley, the most senior military official in the country, believed that Trump was in significant enough mental decline that he actually took countermeasures to ensure Trump didn't start a war with China on his way out the door.
Here’s the relevant passage reported in the book:
"Woodward and Costa write that [Joint Chief Chairman Mark] Milley, deeply shaken by the assault, 'was certain that Trump had gone into a serious mental decline in the aftermath of the election, with Trump now all but manic, screaming at officials and constructing his own alternate reality about endless election conspiracies.' Milley worried that Trump could 'go rogue,' the authors write.
Milley, the top military adviser to the president, a man who undoubtedly spent considerable time with Trump in this period of time, believed that Trump was in "serious mental decline" triggered by his election loss.
Milley wasn't the only person who noticed a change in Trump's behavior in the wake of the election. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a loyal ally of Trump, felt the same way, with McCarthy telling Trump, 'I don't know what's happened to you in the last two months. ... You're not the same as you were for the last four years.'
Milley believed that Trump's mental health had declined to the point where he needed to intercede with China so that a war didn't get started by an unhinged Trump. We may well have been closer to a catastrophe than anyone even thought, all because Trump is mentally unstable, and he’s a conniving malignant narcissist with a severe anti-social personality disorder. Trump is the lowest common denominator of all presidents — scum at the bottom of the barrel.
This is more than terrifying in retrospect. Because Trump isn't gone. Not even close. "I said this many, many times on the campaign trail: we may have defeated Trump, but Trumpism is not dead in this country," said California Gov. Gavin Newsom in his victory speech this past Tuesday night. That is not a partisan statement. It is a fact.
Not surprisingly, QAnon bitch and Trump cultist Marjorie Taylor Greene, in her Twitter babble, has called for General Mark Milley to face a court-martial. Incidentally, Greene is so stupid that she didn’t even know how to spell ‘court-martial’ in her vituperative tweet.
To ensure the continuation of democracy in America, the voters of this country must do everything they can at every opportunity to oppose Trump and all of his Republican cronies who continue to push Trump’s fabricated “Big Lie.” The fact that tens of millions of Americans were seduced by Trump's fabricated lies about election fraud poses grave questions about the future of America's democratic political architecture.
“You can’t unring the bell and you can’t unsay the things [Trump] said — and they have consequences. However, you can get someone different to ring a different bell.” (George Will, Pulitzer prize winner)

Newsom handily defeats Trumpism — Democratic Values Win!
California Governor Gavin Newsom beat all 46 Republican Trump cultists in a recall election to retain his seat as governor of the state of California. This was part of a national battle for Democrat’s values in the face of the coronavirus pandemic and continued threats from far-right, corrosive “Trumpism.” The people spoke and Democrat’s values won handily!
This election ensures the nation’s most populous state will remain in Democratic control as a laboratory for progressive policies. Newsom said, “I want to focus on what we said ‘yes’ to as a state: We said yes to science, we said yes to vaccines, we said yes to ending this pandemic.”
The race was an acid test of whether opposition to Trump and his right-wing politics remains a motivating force for Democrats and independents, as the party looks ahead to midterm elections next year. Republicans had hoped for proof that frustrations over months of pandemic precautions would drive voters away from the Democratic party. The opposite happened — Trumpism failed!
Even before California's Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom survived Tuesday's recall election, however, Trump was opening a new front in his "Big Lie" that now effectively claims that anytime a Republican loses it is a product of massive fraud. It's a falsehood that could tarnish American democratic elections for years to come. Democrats must defeat this cancer.
Not surprisingly, Trump, the nation’s #1 Asshole, released a statement claiming the California recall election was rigged less than an hour after polls closed. Just how stupid can people continue to be in listening to the putrified shit that comes out of Trump’s mouth? Answer: apparently VERY STUPID.
Congratulations to Governor Newsom!
Republicans Fabricate More Lies
The California polls haven’t even opened on today’s election day, but twice-impeached Trump and other right-wing losers, including top Newsom replacement candidate Larry Elder, have started to lay the groundwork to baselessly dismiss a potential Newsom victory as a product of Democratic cheating. Nothing could be further from the real truth.
California voters were shocked once they began hearing Elder's remarks about women, his endorsement of pregnancy discrimination, his opposition to abortion rights and the minimum wage, his opposition to wearing masks during the pandemic, and his skepticism of the climate crisis, among many other topics. Elder’s ex-fiancee once filed an allegation that he brandished a gun at her while high on marijuana. Elder is a Trump clone, or maybe even worse. He is not a qualified candidate for governor.
Influenced by Trump's serial lying about the 2020 election he lost, many Republican voters are now suspicious, for no good reason, about the integrity of American elections in general.
The Republicans are fabricating another “Big Lie.” This is nothing but an attempted power grab by political acolytes and Trump cult followers.
Trump and his allies relentlessly pushed the lie that Democrats could not possibly beat him in an election that wasn't "rigged." And it benefits from years of additional dishonesty, by Trump and others, portraying California as a cesspool of mass illegal voting. These Republicans are pigs.
Vote to retain Governor Newsom.
Defiant & Ignorant Anti-Vaxxers Are Dividing The Country
More than half of the hospitals within a major healthcare system in the western US region are suspending “almost all surgeries” for “several weeks” due to rising COVID-19 cases. Intermountain Healthcare, a major healthcare provider with 24 hospitals, announced that it would postpone all non-urgent surgeries and procedures requiring a hospital admission in its trauma and community hospitals starting Wednesday. Dr. Marc Harrison, CEO of Intermountain Healthcare, told CBS affiliate KUTV that half the system's ICU beds are occupied by patients infected with COVID-19. An overwhelming majority of those patients — 90% — are unvaccinated, he said.
More hospitals are set to do the same as the COVID-19 pandemic has become a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” who are now making up nearly 100% of the COVID cases nationwide. Some doctors are now refusing to treat the unvaccinated.
Southern Ohio Medical Center issued a statement saying, “The dramatic increase in COVID hospitalizations means there may not be a bed available for those who wake up with chest pains. Or those who suffer a stroke. Or those involved in a car crash.”
On September 1, a 73-year-old man in Alabama, Ray Martin DeMonia, died of cardiac failure after he was turned away from 43 hospitals whose ICUs were filled with COVID patients.
The selfishness and stupidity of the anti-vaxxers is beyond belief. These irresponsible luddites have unfortunately politicized a health issue based on erroneous information they get from social media channels instead of our nation’s top health professionals. These same people are alive today because their parents had them vaccinated for polio and smallpox and measles as children. Now, however, they are resisting the one and only vaccination that can save their lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. They are taking up valuable space in ICU wards and stressing hospital staff, preventing responsible people who need health care from getting it. And all of this is unnecessary and preventable by getting the safe, effective and free vaccine.
Get vaccinated or die — it’s your choice — but don’t needlessly take up valuable hospital space from responsible people who truly need health care. A civil war of vaxxers vs. anti-vaxxers looms on the horizon.
It would have been better for him if he had not been born (Matthew 26:24)
It certainly would have been better for America if Trump had not been born.
Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center — a time to honor those we lost and a time to reflect on our freedom.
At Ground Zero in New York, the Pentagon, and in a Pennsylvania field, the names of the dead were read aloud. Bells rang. Bagpipes wailed. Silence marked the most acute moments of the horror that happened that fateful day on 9/11/01.
Are we worthy of the sacrifices made by the nearly 3,000 killed that day? “Do we as individuals, communities and as a country conduct ourselves in a manner that would make those that sacrificed so much and fought so hard proud of who we’ve become?” That was the question asked by Gordon Felt, whose brother, Edward, was a passenger on the doomed flight. One answer came from ex-president George W. Bush, the man who was president on 9/11/01. On the day America was attacked and in the immediate aftermath, the country had been unified. But increasingly, America is menaced not only by foreign dangers but by “violence that gathers from within.”
Clear examples of the violence from within are Trump’s insurrection on January 6, 2020 and his current Republican party cult members, both legislators and citizens, who drank his Kool-Aid and continue to embrace his lies and demented thinking and who are eroding our freedoms by enacting voting restrictions in the courts throughout the land. This is the erosion of democracy and the rise of “violence that gathers from within.”
Yesterday President Joe Biden and former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton attended the main ceremony in Lower Manhattan where the World Trade Center's Twin Towers once stood, while former president George W. Bush spoke at a memorial close to Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where Biden later laid a wreath before visiting the Pentagon, where 44 people died.
Trump had the option to attend, but he declined. Instead, he posted a video praising his lawyer Rudy Giuliani (who was the mayor of New York on the day of the 9/11 attacks) and, like a bobble-head doll with a pull-chain recording that spews forth worthless babble, he visited a police department where he criticized President Biden's troop pullout from Afghanistan, aired worn-out grievances about the “rigged election,” took photos, and shook hands with supporters. As usual, it was all about Trump and not about honoring those who gave their lives on 9/11. Trump then went on to provide commentary at a pay-per-view boxing match on what should have been a somber day.
Trump is an asshole — an unequivocal and indisputable embarrassment to America. It most certainly would have been better for our nation had he not been born.
Thinning The Herd
The world’s health experts have been telling us over and over that the very best way to both end the Covid-19 pandemic and to protect yourself from it while it’s still here is to get vaccinated and to wear a face mask. Yet right wing extremists without credentials in the health field have made what is a health issue into a nonsensical, political one.
Remember, incompetent assholes like Trump recommended bleach and hydroxychloroquine as cures for Covid-19, and continue to hold maskless fund-raising rallies across the country. Ass-sniffing Trump cultist legislators jumped on Trump’s bandwagon in an effort to ally themselves with his party with hope of improving their reelection chances, and stupid people continue to follow the twice-impeached ex-president and his unqualified political cronies.
Statistics show that the pandemic has now clearly become a pandemic of the unvaccinated.
No one can be either uninformed or misinformed about the pandemic in 2021. With the rapid spread of the Delta variant, refusing to get vaccinated is no different than playing Russian Roulette with your life and the lives of others. Only the unvaccinated are now dying of Covid-19 in our nation’s overloaded hospitals’ intensive care units — and it’s all preventable.
So, if you don’t want to get vaccinated and wear a face mask, then don’t. When you die of Covid-19 because of your own stupidity, it’ll be one less person to spread the virus and one way to thin the herd. But in the meantime you’re the one overloading the health care system and preventing others from getting the necessary surgeries and health care they need; you’re the one spreading the virus to children too young to get the vaccine; and you’re the one driving up health care costs for everyone else — all because of your stupidity and your so-called “rights.” The only “right” you have is the “right” to act responsibly, and that’s to get vaccinated.
Under President Biden’s new emergency rule, 80 million workers (i.e. two thirds of the nation’s work force) will now either be required to 1) get vaccinated or 2) get tested for the virus on a weekly basis in order to maintain their employment. So you still have three options: get vaccinated, get tested weekly, or quit your job. It’s pretty simple — you choose. America has put up with the ignorant politics-playing hold-outs to the vaccine long enough. The rear view mirror of history will show the Republicans and their anti-vaccine loyalists to be nothing more than a radical fringe group of what can be referred to as “American terrorists”
We’re going to beat this pandemic either with you or without you — it’s your choice.
9/11 — Twenty years later
On the 20th anniversary of the 9/11/01 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York, let us stop to honor the 3,000+ innocent American lives lost on that day.
For those who are too young to have been witness to that fateful day, let us also stop to remember that all 19 of the terrorist hijackers that day were from Saudi Arabia and the Taliban government in Afghanistan was sheltering and protecting 9/11 architect Osama bin Laden in Pakistan until America’s elite Navy Seal Team Six finally killed the pig on 5/2/11.
So when you stop to think about who America’s true allies are, don’t ever forget that neither Saudi Arabia nor Afghanistan are among them. Neither of these two countries can be trusted.
President Biden will be quietly visiting all three of the crash sites to honor those killed by the terrorists that fateful day in 2001. Meanwhile, Trump, who has no class and no respect for the fallen on this anniversary of over 3,000 American deaths, will be hosting and commentating the pay-per-view Triller Fight Club heavyweight boxing match between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort. Trump is a pathetic and completely worthless asshole.
Mentally deficient Trump to provide boxing match commentary on 9/11
Just when you thought a no-class asshole couldn’t stoop any lower, folks.
Twice-impeached Trump, the nation’s #1 Asshole, and his son, Donny Jr., are scheduled to provide pay-per-view commentary for a boxing match at a Florida casino on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. The fact that Trump even entertains this as a good idea shows what low standards he has and proves that he has “no class” whatsoever. This unstable idiot is a disgrace to America and to the legacy of the presidents of our country.
The stupidity of the unvaccinated is beyond comprehension
CNN reported that thirteen staffers from Miami-Dade County Public Schools, all of whom were unvaccinated, died from Covid-19 since the beginning of the new academic year in August. These included four teachers, one security monitor, one cafeteria worker and seven school bus drivers.
All unvaccinated. All preventable deaths. This has become a pandemic of the unvaccinated.
Americans are stupid. When will we learn that this is not a political issue and that vaccinations and wearing masks save lives?
“If we want to protect the children, particularly those who are not yet eligible for vaccination, you want to surround the children with people who are vaccinated — teachers, school personnel, everyone else,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
In related news, CNN has reported that there were 252,000 pediatric cases of Covid-19 reported in one week! The CDC also reported that more than 55,000 children have been hospitalized with Covid-19 since August of 2020, and at least 520 children have died. Children now make up more than 26% of new Covid-19 cases. The Delta variant is further annihilating the myth that healthy kids can't get hit hard. These children are currently too young for the vaccine, so it’s even more important that everyone else in their families and at school be vaccinated in order to protect them. The CDC recommends students from kindergarten through grade 12, along with teachers and visitors, wear masks in school, regardless of vaccination status.
Remember, idiot governors like Ron DeSantis in Florida are more interested in their reelection chances than they are about the health and well-being of their constituents, and they have proven that they know little to nothing about the science of protecting these citizens from this pandemic.
Incompetent DeSantis blocks school board members’ salaries over mask mandates
Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, is withholding school board members’ salaries in districts that require face coverings in classrooms. DeSantis is clearly vindictive and incompetent.
“At the end of the day though, it's about your health and whether you want that protection or not,” DeSantis said. “It really doesn't impact me or anyone else.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease authority, says DeSantis is “completely incorrect” to suggest vaccines are a personal choice with no broad implications.
Vaccines have been the solution to public health crises such as smallpox, polio and measles, Fauci said — but they rely on wide adoption to work, he added. “When you're dealing with an outbreak of an infectious disease, it isn't only about you,” Fauci said. “There's a societal responsibility that we all have.”
And part of that societal responsibility is for everyone to wear a face mask during this pandemic — no exceptions!
DeSantis is a fool.
Eleven vindictive Republican legislators send threatening letters
Republicans are illegally trying to scare off telecom companies that might have something damning about them.
Eleven Republican lawmakers sent a letter to Yahoo urging the company not to cooperate with a House investigation into the Jan. 6 insurrection, except in their ignorance they addressed it to a CEO who left more than four years ago. In all, they sent letters to 13 businesses, including Amazon, AOL, Apple, AT&T, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Snap, T-Mobine, U.S. Cellular Corporation and Verizon.
Those eleven Republicans who have something to hide by trying to thwart the House select committee’s investigation are:
- QAnon Bitch Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia
- Matt Gaetz of Florida
- Jim Jordan of Ohio
- Lauren Boebert of Colorado
- Mo Brooks of Alabama
- Madison Cawthorn of Alabama
- Louie Gohmert of Texas
- Jody Hice of Georgia
- Scott Perry of Pennsylvania
- Andy Biggs of Arizona
- Paul Gosar of Arizona
Last week, the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) file an ethics complaint against House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Greene, who both claimed that the companies could be shut down if they complied with the committee’s requests.
“House rules require members to uphold the laws of the United States and to conduct themselves at all time in a manner that reflects creditably on the House. The threats of McCarthy and Greene do neither,” said the complaint which was filed with the chief counsel of the Office of Congressional Ethics. “Threatening retaliation for complying with legally valid document demands and preservation requests appears to violate 18 U.S.C. § 1505, which prohibits obstructing congressional investigations, and does not reflect creditably on the House.”
CREW President Noah Bookbinder said in a statement that McCarthy and Greene were “transparently trying to thwart the select committee by illegally threatening companies with reprisals if they comply with the committee’s proper and lawful requests — quite possibly to protect themselves. McCarthy and Greene are scum.
Trump is a Fascist
In her new book, “The Reckoning: Our Nation’s Trauma and Finding a Way to Heal,” Mary Trump, psychologist and niece of twice-impeached Donald Trump, said that her uncle has the personality of a fascist. “He is a fascist, but he probably doesn’t know what ‘fascist’ means,” Mary told Business Insider. “He thinks he deserves all the power in the world just because of who he is,” Mary continued. “In his mind, he’s always at the center of the universe and thinks he should be deferred to even though he’s ignorant, the weakest, and the least intellectually curious person I’ve ever met.”
Continuing her assessment of her uncle, Mary said, “The only thing that matters to him is what he views, in his mind, to be strength. I guess his definition of strength is being cruel and disruptive as possible and getting away with it all the time.”
And based on their actions during and since Trump’s term in office, this is the new model that he has taught the Republican party. Trump and his cult followers need both a muzzle and a leash.
The Worthless Republicans begin their intimidation campaign
The Guardian has reported that top Republicans under scrutiny for their role in the events of January 6th have embarked on a campaign of threats and intimidation to thwart a Democratic-controlled congressional panel that is scrutinizing Trump’s Capitol attack.
House minority leader Kevin McCarthy decried the select committee’s investigation as a partisan exercise and threatened to retaliate against any telecommunications company that complied with the records requests. The truth is clear: McCarthy is scared of the facts which would implicate him and many other Republican ass-sniffing Trump cultists, so he’s trying to bury those facts! This is all about guilty Republicans operating from fear.
McCarthy is attempting to undermine a forensic examination of the attack perpetrated by Trump supporters and domestic violent extremists that left five dead and nearly 140 injured.
Democrats need to learn that Republicans are always on the attack, even to the point of lying and cheating — it’s their modus operandi — while Democrats are too meek and too kind. It’s time the Democrats get on the offensive to keep the Republicans in check and stay there like a python on the attack. It’s too bad it has to be that way, but otherwise the Republicans will only be more than willing to continue their lying, cheating and manufacturing of fake news for their own selfish gain.
Asshole Trump complains about Catholics and Jews
Business Insider reported that Asshole Trump complained about Catholics and Jews who did not vote for him in 2020. He made the comments in a campaigning call on Thursday organized by the religious group Intercessors for America.
"Look what I did with the embassy in Jerusalem and what I did with so many other things. Israel has never had a better friend, and yet I got 25% of the [Jewish] vote," he said. "I think they have to get together.
During the call, Trump repeated his widely debunked claims that he won the 2020 election.
Trump has described himself as a "non-denominational Christian." When asked about his own religion during the call, Trump said, "It's all based around God. It's so important. God is so important to the success of what we're doing."
Trump is nothing more than a sad and pathetic snake oil salesman.
Tucker Carlson = “Human Manure Spreader”
CNN host Jim Acosta has called Tucker Carlson of Fox News a “human manure spreader” for his insistence that Afghan refugees are being welcomed into this country in order to influence the outcome of future elections.
"Over on Fox, human manure spreader Tucker Carlson has floated yet another race baiting conspiracy theory that tens of thousands of Afghan refugees are being welcomed into this country in order to change the outcome of future elections," Acosta said.
Two weeks ago, Carlson made similar statements demonizing Afghan refugees fleeing their country amid the Taliban takeover. Carlson has pushed the conspiracy known as Replacement Theory before.
Carlson is nothing but a far right ass-sniffing Trump cultist who uses his bully pulpit at Fox News to spew forth more of Trump’s “Big Lies,” and those who believe his outright lies are even more pathetic than he is.
$80 Billion Too Much
USA Today has estimated the cost of the war in Afghanistan:
- $300 MILLION per day for 20 years
- Total conflict cost of more than $2.3 TRILLION over 20 years
- More than $80 BILLION wasted training Afghan security forces who ultimately refused to fight for their own country against Taliban extremists
It’s about time the United States stops fighting civil and religious wars in other countries. Our stated goal was reached in Afghanistan well over a decade ago. The U.S. is not the world’s peacekeeper, protector or savior. The rear view mirror of history will show that pulling out of Afghanistan was a long overdue success for the United States.
QAnon Shaman: GUILTY as charged!
Jacob Anthony Chansley, the QAnon Shaman, appeared for a plea agreement today where he pleaded guilty to one of the most serious charges stemming from Trump’s Jan. 6 riot and could face a maximum of 20 years in prison. Chansley is a supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory that casts Trump as a savior figure and elite Democrats as a cabal of Satanist pedophiles and cannibals.
Chansley argued that he entered the Capitol only at the invitation of then-President Trump and had previously referred to former Vice President Mike Pence as a traitor, saying, “It’s only a matter of time, justice is coming.” He also made a social media post in November in which he promoted hangings for traitors. Chansley is disappointed that Trump didn’t pardon him.
The only traitor here is Chansley. Sentencing was scheduled for November 17. He remains held without bond until that date. Let’s all chant it in unison: Lock him up! Lock him up!
The case highlighted how some Trump supporters are now facing real-world consequences by believing in Trump’s fantastical conspiracy theories. Overall, at least 600 people have been arrested, and the Justice Department has secured more than 50 guilty pleas.
Tweedledee and Tweedledum
Business Insider has reported that House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy said the debt is one of the two biggest threats to the US, yet he’s one who pushed the Republican’s 2017 tax cuts, which favored wealthy Americans and corporations, and which are expected to add almost $2 trillion to the debt. Of course, a spokesperson for McCarthy didn’t respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
Trump oversaw a $7.8 TRILLION national debt increase during his time in office.
How many ways can you say irresponsible? Just two: Trump and McCarthy.
Traitorous White Supremacists praise the Taliban
CNN is reporting that as the United States-backed government in Afghanistan fell to the Taliban and US troops raced to leave the country, traitorous white supremacist and anti-government extremists have expressed admiration for what the Taliban accomplished. Their praise has also been coupled with a wave of anti-refugee sentiment from these far-right groups.
If these worthless, pro-Trump, Neo-Nazi white supremacists love the Taliban so much, then we say, “Move to Afghanistan, assholes.”
Trump, the Cheat
Business Insider is reporting that Trump was caught looking to help fund the very recount of the Arizona audit that his cult followers hoped would help overturn his loss in the 2020 presidential election.
New text messages suggest Trump was interested in donating to the Arizona election audit. In an April text exchange reviewed by The Arizona Capitol Times, former Trump campaign official Jeff DeWit and audit spokesperson Randy Pullen discussed possible contributions by Trump to the audit effort.
It is unclear if Trump ended up contributing to the audit effort. Regardless, Trump is scum. A representative for the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
The presidency is not “for sale,” Donnie!
The Taliban are Shameless Liars, Murderers & PIGS
Fox News has reported that Afghanistan’s first day under Taliban rule in nearly two decades has already been marked with fear and violence as officials with the new government are killing individuals as they vow to impose a strict Islamic way of life now that American forces have left the country. Hours after the U.S. withdrew from Afghanistan, Taliban members were going door to door in Kabul and executing people, a senior U.S. official told Fox News.
Similar actions had already been taken in other parts of the country before the American military even left. Last Wednesday, a former translator for a high-ranking U.S. Army Ranger told Fox News the Taliban had started executing allies of the U.S. in public, in provinces away from the media attention of Kabul.
Activist and former Afghan judge Najla Ayoubi said in an interview with Sky News that in recent weeks young women were "being shipped into neighboring countries in coffins to be used as sex slaves," and that families were being coerced into marrying off young daughters to Taliban fighters.
The Taliban is made up of nothing but liars, murderers and filthy PIGS.
The QAnon Bitch threatened telecommunications companies
Marjorie Taylor Greene, the QAnon Bitch, and her co-conspirator, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, warned telecommunications companies against sharing information with the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol. These mentally deficient legislators both suggested that the companies would face repercussions for complying with the committee's request for data once Republicans are in control of the government.
Some of the records they’re requesting pertain specifically to Greene and other Republican members of Congress who were involved in the January 6 "Stop the Steal" rally supporting Trump's false claims that he "won" the 2020 election.
The QAnon Bitch, speaking on loser Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show, said, “America was never meant to be a Communist country. But these are the tactics that Democrats are wanting to use."
President Biden obviously would not support Greene’s proposal to punish telecommunications companies for complying with the committee's request.
During Trump's presidency, he repeatedly threatened to repeal Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects online platforms from legal liability involving third-party content, due to an alleged bias against himself and other conservatives on social media. Trump's efforts obviously failed.
