Trump says US won’t punish Saudi crown prince over Khashoggi murder.
“Maybe he did it, maybe he didn’t,” the president says.
CIA says “we have a tape of him doing it. We’re sure he did it.
Turkey is sure. Everyone is sure. But Trump’s business dealings with the Saudi’s are more important than getting justice for an American journalist dismembered, leaving three children, all of whom are US citizens, fatherless.
Trump just told our system of Justice to go fuck itself.
And what about the GOP; that pack of spineless pricks who support a man who cares about nothing but himself?
One one level, the long-lasting Trump affect is pure racism. Trump defended the tiki-torch carrying white supremacists in Charlottesville, the same ones who killed a young 32-year old woman, and in doing so empowered racists across America to fly the confederate flag. Even as far north as Minnesota, confused white people believe that the flag represents American values.
Let’s cut right to the chase. White people who fly these flags are cowards, and even more to their ridiculous point, failures. They simply can’t compete because they’re short-sighted, lazy, and unimaginative. People of color built this nation, and you can fly all the flags you want, but they’re coming. And they work harder than you, have stronger family values, and are at their core they kind of people America deserves.
So enjoy your last hurrah, you ignorant hillbillies. Wrap yourself up in any flag you choose, but it won’t work. Why? Because Americans will reject your racist chants and choose instead to embrace the vision from which this country was conceived.
You are the past, and your colors are fading.
Morning Joe says that the MM isn’t fair to those questioning Ford. Really? Go ahead and ask. What part of her story has holes?
1-She told the story over the years to friends and shrinks.
2-She didn’t report to police like hundreds of thousands of other victims of sexual assault.
3-She was a 15 yr old girl, you dumbass
4-The four “witnesses” that wouldn’t corroborate included the assailants, Mark Judge and Kavanaugh, and two others downstairs at a summer afternoon party 36 years ago. There was loud music. How would they know what happened upstairs?
5-The one girl who was downstairs believes Ford.
6-Ford doesn’t remember the date and location of the party.
• I can’t tell you the date when my father died, but he’s still fucking dead. Ford explained the science of the brain to the redneck republicans who don’t believe in evolution or climate-change, so that’s not gonna work. The voluminous literature surrounding our memories of traumatic events however show we remember the event, but not always the details surrounding them.
7-The calendar’s significance relies on the idea that summer parties as teens were only on weekends. This wasn’t a “party” as much as a get-together of friends and they occurred all the time, even after a weight lifting workout with PJ.
8-FORD has NO contradictions in her testimony. NONE. Kavanaugh has dozens of lies.
So Morning Joe? SFTU. We in the Mainstream Media are principled and not sucking up to purple viewers in a desperate attempt to hold onto a pathetic exercise in self-aggrandizing.
Cruz calls Beto a “socialist?”
America is already socialist.
Embrace that shit.
•Social Security (Has the word “social” in it)
These three make up 40% of our $2,000,000,000 budget
But wait, there’s more.
We all pay for roads, water, electric that we never use,
in swamps like Louisiana, Georgia, Texas or some other place where they believe in the “rapture” or don’t believe in evolution.
Religious tax breaks? Stupid socialist theocracy.
The military is almost a trillion dollar social program
And Trump called for a $2 billion subsidy for farmers.
“Subsidy” is socialism.
and then there are all of the tax breaks for corporations, that’s exactly the definition of socialism.
The only thing that isn’t socialism is the way we deny Americans access to health care, clean air, clean water, and affordable housing.
That’s no “ism;” that’s just being a dick, like Ted Cruz, Trump, and the rest of these hypocrites assholes.
Now study this. There’s a big test on Nov 6th
We don’t have an immigration problem.
CATO study found native Texans commit 15% more crime than undocs.
We have negative immigration with Mexico.
40% of Mexico imports to US have US parts
1/3 of total US trade is w/ Mexico, Canada, and Brazil.
Back before we militarized our border, cyclical immigration allowed Mexicans to stay during harvest, and go home afterwards. But during 80’s, fueled by xenophobia, we closed border and that forced undocs to stay and start families here. Thus, of the 11 million undocs here, as many as 3-4 million would have gone home.
It’s about racism. Simple.
“LeBron James builds schools, Donald Trump builds cages.”
That’s paraphrasing CNN’s Don Lemon after Trump’s insane tweet.
Going after football players is one thing, but Lebron is the great American story. After a heralded youth, he marries his high-school sweetheart, and thru tireless effort becomes the best of the best, enjoying the accolades of his peers and wild financial success.
But instead of making it rain, he becomes a philanthropic machine, engaging his community and the world with a clear, mature vision of justice and hope.
Trump? He rips off people and gets peed on by hookers.
Whose side are you on?
If a person is careless with their gun and it’s stolen, should they be held responsible? Of course, except half the time, it’s law enforcement who screwed the pooch, lost their gun, and it ended up in the hands of someone who used it to hurt another. . Remember Kate Steinle? Killed by a law enforcement gun that misfired in the hands of an undocumented man.
All we heard was “Illegal!” We should have been yelling, “Responsibility.” Isn’t that what the GOP is always bitching about?
Kansas City Star
Bank of America wants to know if you are a citizen. Who cares? You should, cause they have your money and they’re not giving it back. F*ckin a, you read me right. And the irony is that BofA was fined by the feds just a few years ago. While talking out of one side of their mouth about “illegals” they were laundering money from undocs sending their wages back to their families, all the while charging exorbitant rates.
Take your money out today! Just speak English or they may keep it.
If Trump’s a genius, why does he have the worst lawyer in the world? Or is that the plan? Be stupid for the stupid? Rudy did it again, slipping up on the White House position of there was no second meeting. But that’s the least of Trump’s worries. Sure “Collusion” isn’t in the federal code. Neither is “cellmate” or “concubine” or concrete walls. But Conspiracy is, and that may make it all moot. Stay tuned.
Only “eligible” parents to be reunited with kids? And DOJ wants to drop “undocumented” and call everyone illegal aliens?
The statue of Liberty was a gift from France, and displayed there is this poem,
““Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
That lamp is dark.
I honestly can’t focus my hate because there are so many people, starting with Trump, that are so deserving. Trump’s a sociopath, but he’s not as bad as people like Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Pence and the rest who claim to be conservative Christians. You are not. You are the f*cking devil.
