Impeachment of Donald J Trump / GOP deserves to die
« on: December 04, 2019, 10:16:20 AM »
Bill Clinton lied in a civil deposition, in a case that had nothing whatsoever to do with his official duties and in a case that was deemed to be frivolous about a matter that was deemed to be irrelevant. Then he was impeached straight across party lines. I don't think anyone ever condoned Bill Clinton's behavior. It was wrong but it had nothing whatsoever to do with his official duties and it came after a brutally partisan attempt to smear the man. I give "the Elves," like Ann Coulter, some credit. Ken Starr is atrocious. I don't see how he shows his face after producing a third rate porn piece for no reason pertaining to his appointment.

By contrast Orange Hitler has obstructed justice at least 10 times. Each one of those obstructions are, in and of itself, is a serious crime for which people are currently serving years in prison. But that is not all. He also conspired with Cohen, who now is rotting in prison. He was found to have colluded with Russia, but that is not a crime. There are more crimes that Orange Hitler has committed.

But now we have another set of facts, which are no longer in dispute. Keep in mind that Orange Hitler has repeatedly lied about these facts and has further obstructed the Congressional investigation. Each one of those obstructions is also a crime. Nixon's impeachment was based on much, much less. But there is no doubt now that Orange Hitler extorted and bribed Zelinsky. He converted hundreds of millions of our tax dollars to his personal use, in an effort to advance his own interests not ours.

The law is not partisan. The defense of Orange Hitler is nothing but partisan.

Bill Kristol tweeted yesterday that the GOP deserves to not survive this corruption, in which every single Republican is complicit.

Democratic National Committee Vice Chairman Michael Blake tore into Fox News and host Tucker Carlson during a Tuesday morning Fox News interview, directly asking anchor Bill Hemmer why the network still employs Carlson following his infamous claim that white supremacy is a “hoax.”

Brought on to discuss Carlson’s Monday night prediction that former first lady Michelle Obama will eventually be the Democratic presidential nominee, Blake took the opportunity to hijack the goofy premise and blast both the network and Carlson.

"Supply-side economics."

Creation science.

Willie Horton.

Swiftboat liars.



Lying us into an unnecessary war in Iraq.


Phony IRS scandal.


Clinton murder conspiracy.

Welfare queen.

Climate science denialism.

But the topper all lies and right wing conspiracy crap is the Orange Hitler cult. You fuckers don't deserve to live in a democracy. You have lost my respect forever.

We will be rid of Orange Hitler soon, but you mopes will never. ever rid yourselves of the stench on your hands. You know it. You know that we know it. And you are dead enders. Your cult leader squeaked into office by the slimmest of margins. He is a fluke. He is not expanding your old, white base. He has nothing to offer anyone with intelligence and integrity and neither do you moron cult followers.

You disgust me. Fuck off + die.

Politics / Harry Truman - Already Fact Checked
« on: November 22, 2019, 04:57:58 PM »

On 13 October 1948, President Harry Truman made an appearance in St. Paul, Minnesota, stumping on behalf of both his own re-election campaign and a bid by the mayor of Minneapolis, fellow Democrat Hubert Humphrey, to land a seat in the U.S. Senate. During that appearance in St. Paul, President Truman delivered an address at the city’s Municipal Auditorium which was carried on a nationwide radio broadcast and included the criticism of the Republican Party:

“Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home — but not for housing. They are strong for labor — but they are stronger for restricting labor’s rights. They favor minimum wage — the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all — but they won’t spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine — for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing — but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing — so long as it doesn’t spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.”

    Today the forces of liberalism face a crisis. The people of the United States must make a choice between two ways of living — a decision which will affect us the rest of our lives and our children and our grandchildren after us.

    On the other side, there is the Wall Street way of life and politics. Trust the leader! Let big business take care of prices and profits! Measure all things by money! That is the philosophy of the masters of the Republican Party.

    Well, I have been studying the Republican Party for over 12 years at close hand in the Capital of the United States. And by this time, I have discovered where the Republicans stand on most of the major issues.

    Since they won’t tell you themselves, I am going to tell you.

    They approve of the American farmer — but they are willing to help him go broke.

    They stand four-square for the American home — but not for housing.

    They are strong for labor — but they are stronger for restricting labor’s rights.

    They favor a minimum wage — the smaller the minimum the better.

    They indorse educational opportunity for all — but they won’t spend money for teachers or for schools.

    They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine — for people who can afford them.

    They approve of Social Security benefits — so much so that they took them away from almost a million people.

    They believe in international trade — so much so that they crippled our reciprocal trade program, and killed our International Wheat Agreement.

    They favor the admission of displaced persons — but only within shameful racial and religious limitations.

    They consider electric power a great blessing — but only when the private power companies get their rake-off.

    They say TVA is wonderful — but we ought never to try it again.

    They condemn “cruelly high prices” — but fight to the death every effort to bring them down.

    They think the American standard of living is a fine thing — so long as it doesn’t spread to all the people.

    And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.

    Now, my friends, that is the Wall Street Republican way of life. But there is another way — there is another way — the Democratic way, the way of the Democratic Party.

Impeachment of Donald J Trump / Your cult bribed and extorted Zelinsky

Of course we all knew that and we know that "conservatives" do nothing but lie.

This leaves 2 options:

1. Smear the witnesses; and,

2. Claim that bribery and extortion are not grounds for impeachment.

Smearing the witnesses is a bad idea, but that hasn't stopped any of you. Admitting the undeniably truth and lying about the significance isn't good either, but it's slightly less of a lack of integrity and decency.

You "conservatives" disgust me. Whenever I think you can't get lower, you do. Fuck off + die.

Politics / The One and Only "Conservative" Value: Lying
« on: November 18, 2019, 05:34:50 PM »

When listening to President Trump and fellow Republicans throw around accusations against Democrats and the media or advance defenses for Trump’s impeachable conduct, there is a better than even chance they are misleading if not downright lying. In some cases, we discover the lies because other individuals are caught lying.

Roger Stone was convicted, among other things, of lying to Congress about his conversations with WikiLeaks’s Julian Assange. He falsely claimed: He had no emails, documents or texts relating to WikiLeaks; he never sought damaging information (i.e., emails) about Hillary Clinton; never contacted WikiLeaks through intermediaries; and never contacted the Trump campaign about WikiLeaks. The last lie — denying contacts with the Trump campaign — raises the question as to whether President Trump lied in responses to Robert S. Mueller II.

Orange Hitler is toxic. He said so himself when he told his cult followers that the Kentucky Governor's election was all about him.

Now let's see how many Republicans continue to hitch their future on this criminal. WE, THE PEOPLE have an open and shut case against Orange Hitler for bribery and extortion, especially with Sundland having somehow come to Jesus. Pence is into this up to his eyeballs.

"But we have Mississippi." Ha! Morons.

Impeachment of Donald J Trump / Malignant Narcissist
« on: October 17, 2019, 04:30:53 PM »

Here’s something psychotherapist Elizabeth Mika wrote in 2017 during Trump’s first week in office:

“What we know about malignant narcissists is that they psychologically decompensate once they achieve the ultimate position of power. They worsen in every possible way: become more grandiose and paranoid, more aggressive and demanding, and progressively less in touch with reality … We can expect his narcissistic rage to intensify in proportion to his increasing grandiosity and paranoia.

“His handlers will have to resort to increasingly more ‘creative’ ways to placate and subdue him — and it will work, for a while, until it doesn’t.“

There’ll be blood, symbolic, if not literal, as he’ll fire and destroy his previously ‘trusted’ associates, maybe even in rapid succession and without any rhyme or reason.

“His demands for adulation will also become more intense and bizarre, and we’ll be witnessing idiotic and quite possibly dangerous displays of his ‘superiority’ … It’s not only that he will never get better, but it is certain that he will get worse.”

Everybody who’s ever dealt with a seriously disturbed individual knows the sense of constant dread about what mad folly might come next. Now the whole country’s there. Trump’s bizarre antics at the G7 meetings in France were like a fire alarm in the night.

“Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China …”

“Hereby ordered,” no less. Hear that, Apple and General Motors?

Psychiatrists don’t call personality disorders like Trump’s mental illnesses, because there are no known causes or treatments. Only diagnoses. People like him are one of nature’s nasty little tricks, like smallpox and ticks.

And when they get into power, chaos follows. Every single time.

If Trump were an airline pilot, Fallows notes, he’d be grounded. If he captained a Navy destroyer, he’d lose his command. A corporate CEO who postured as the “King of Israel” would be removed by the board of directors. A surgeon who constantly insulted women and racial minorities couldn’t practice in any hospital. And so on.

Problem is, what Fallows aptly calls America’s “Vichy Republicans” hold veto power and are paralyzed for fear of their own credulous voters.

This story may not end well.

Politics / God Is Now Orange Hitler's Co-Conspirator
« on: October 15, 2019, 01:51:36 PM »

Listening to the speech William Barr, the attorney general, gave last week at the University of Notre Dame Law School, I found myself thinking of the title of an old movie: “God Is My Co-Pilot.” What I realized is that Donald Trump’s minions have now gone that title one better: If Barr’s speech is any indication, their strategy is to make God their boss’s co-conspirator.

Given where we are right now, you might have expected Barr to respond in some way to the events of the past few weeks — the revelation that the president has been calling on foreign regimes to produce dirt on his domestic opponents, the airport arrest of associates of the president’s lawyer as they tried to leave the country on one-way tickets, credible reports that Rudy Giuliani himself is under criminal investigation.

Alternatively, Barr could have delivered himself of some innocuous pablum, which is something government officials often do in difficult times.

But no. Barr gave a fiery speech denouncing the threat to America posed by “militant secularists,” whom he accused of conspiring to destroy the “traditional moral order,” blaming them for rising mental illness, drug dependency and violence.
Sign Up for Debatable

Agree to disagree, or disagree better? We'll help you understand the sharpest arguments on the most pressing issues of the week, from new and familiar voices.

Consider for a moment how inappropriate it is for Barr, of all people, to have given such a speech. The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion; the nation’s chief law enforcement officer has no business denouncing those who exercise that freedom by choosing not to endorse any religion.

And we’re not talking about a tiny group, either. These days, around a fifth of Americans say that they don’t consider themselves affiliated with any religion, roughly the same number who consider themselves Catholic. How would we react if the attorney general denounced Catholicism as a force undermining American society?

And he didn’t just declare that secularism is bad; he declared that the damage it does is intentional: “This is not decay. It is organized destruction.” If that kind of talk doesn’t scare you, it should; it’s the language of witch hunts and pogroms.

It seems almost beside the point to note that Barr’s claim that secularism is responsible for violence happens to be empirically verifiable nonsense. America has certainly become less religious over the past quarter century, with a large rise in the number of religiously unaffiliated and growing social liberalism on issues like same-sex marriage; it has also seen a dramatic decline in violent crime. European nations are far less religious than we are; they also have much lower homicide rates, and rarely experience the mass shootings that have become almost routine here.

Nonetheless, William Barr — again, the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, responsible for defending the Constitution — is sounding remarkably like America’s most unhinged religious zealots, the kind of people who insist that we keep experiencing mass murder because schools teach the theory of evolution. Guns don’t kill people — Darwin kills people!

So what’s going on here? Pardon my cynicism, but I seriously doubt that Barr, whose boss must be the least godly man ever to occupy the White House, has suddenly realized to his horror that America is becoming more secular. No, this outburst of God-talk is surely a response to the way the walls are closing in on Trump, the high likelihood that he will be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Trump’s response to his predicament has been to ramp up the ugliness in an effort to rally his base. The racism has gotten even more explicit, the paranoia about the deep state more extreme. But who makes up Trump’s base? The usual answer is working-class whites, but a deeper dive into the data suggests that it’s more specific: It’s really evangelical working-class whites who are staying with Trump despite growing evidence of his malfeasance and unsuitability for high office.

And at a more elite level, while a vast majority of Republican politicians have meekly fallen in line behind Trump, his truly enthusiastic support comes from religious leaders like Jerry Falwell Jr., who have their own ethical issues, but have called on their followers to “render to God and Trump.”

Politics / Mitt Romney Alert System

Orange Hitler conducted a Soviet style psyop against the American public. Pence is deeply involved. Barr has obstructed justice.

WE, THE PEOPLE are the majority. WE, THE PEOPLE will crush the corrupt cult.

I like this article on Ulyses S. Grant crushing the treasonous Robert E. Lee:

In a classroom, the rebel flag was described as “a sticker you put on the back of your pickup truck to announce that you intend to marry your sister. Think of it like a white trash ‘Save The Date’ card,” according to reports.
