Donald Trump Exploits Death To Promote Wall

Once again, President Donald Trump is exploiting the death of a person to promote his infamous wall. The most recent incident involves the death of a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agent. CBP agent Rogelio Martinez, 36, was killed, and his partner was injured. Circumstances surrounding the incident are not really clear at this point. That being said, it is very inappropriate for Donald Trump to use this incident to make “political hay” and promote the building of a wall between Mexico and the United States. This is not the first time that Donald Trump has attempted to exploit a tragedy to further his racist agenda.

Last year’s death of Kate Steinle, who was shot by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco, was another occasion that Donald Trump tried explaining a tragedy to further his agenda and promote the idea of building a wall between the two countries. Despite the fact that Ms. Steinle’s family asked that her death not be exploited for political reasons, President Donald Trump went ahead and use the tragedy of her death a number of times during his campaign. He did not give a damn, but went ahead and disrespected the wishes of her family.  He has been pushing this ridiculous idea that a wall would somehow make us safer since his campaign for POTUS in 2016. My big question has always been, “safe from what?”

Donald Trump, during his presidential campaign”, stated that Mexicans are “rapists and killers”, even though there are absolutely no statistics given any evidence that what he says is true. People of Mexican descent are no more likely to commit crimes than people of other races. He is merely targeting Latinos, and other people of color, as scapegoats for the trouble in our society. My opinion is he is more threatened by the fact that wealthy rich white men are losing control of this country, and he can’t stand it because his thinly veiled racist nature simply won’t allow him to accept people who are different than him. His entire attitude smacks of Eurocentrism and all the evils that follow it.

Donald Trump is obviously racist against people who are not white, in this case, Latinos. There is no doubt about that. You just have to look at the people that the president associates with, and what they say and believe, to see that Donald Trump is very obviously prejudiced against people of color. He singled them out and picks on them at every given turn. He is willing to do anything to build his wall, despite the fact that it will not only be too expensive but has shown to be highly unpopular among most people in this country. Hopefully, this wall will collapse on top of him.

 

An Uncomfortable Truth about Donald Trump

  Given the state of the Republican presidential race, it’s time to acknowledge a very uncomfortable truth: Donald Trump is probably going to be the Republican nominee. The question for Democrats is simple. Who has the best chance to defeat Trump? And by any objective measure, the answer is Bernie Sanders. In …

 

Judge Roy Moore Exposed As A Sexual Degenerate

Judge Roy Moore, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Alabama, was exposed as a sexual degenerate after a woman claimed that he sexually assaulted her when she was 14.

Judge Roy Moore Exposed as a Sexual Degenerate

Judge Roy MooreJudge Roy Moore, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Alabama, was exposed as a sexual degenerate after a woman claimed that he sexually assaulted her when she was 14. Even though Roy Moore has been pressured by leaders of the Republican Party, including U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, he has refused to do so.
Despite the allegations, he is going forward with his Senate campaign. No one should be surprised by either his or hypocrisy or his refusal to drop out of the race. He denies the incident even happened and had gone so far as to blame Democrats for concocting this rumor. It never ceases to amaze me how people like Judge Roy Moore blame everyone else for problems they created. It’s always easier to blame someone else than it is to own your shit.

If it weren’t for the statute of limitations, Judge Roy Moore would probably be heading to jail if there were any real justice in this world. Sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl is just about as low as you can get. However, this child molester is going to be running for the U.S. Senate.

If that wasn’t enough, Roy Moore sits on the Alabama Supreme Court and has made many controversial rulings, especially when it comes to sexual matters. He has been kicked off the bench twice for refusing to follow US Supreme Court orders, among them decisions in favor of same-sex marriage and transgender rights. Now, we find out that Roy Moore sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl. Another fucking hypocrite!

Since the election is scheduled for December, the Republicans are probably stuck with Roy Moore because it is legally too late for them to change candidates. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) has even initiated a write-in campaign for Luther Strange, the man Judge Roy Moore defeated in the primary election. How’s that for desperation? Democratic Party opponent, Doug Jones, must be dancing in celebration because he was shown to be behind in the polls.

For some reason, I sincerely doubt that Judge Roy Moore is the only member of the Republican Party who is guilty of some “sexual impropriety.” Just look at the “man” who sits in the White House, who himself is a well-known sexual predator.

Democratic National Committee Betrays Younger Voters With Corruption

The worst things about the corruption exposed within the Democratic National Committee is that many younger voters have been further disillusioned.

Democratic National Committee Betrays Younger Voters With Corruption

Democratic National CommitteeThe worst thing about the corruption exposed within the Democratic National Committee is that many younger voters have been disillusioned. The political process is already considered a turnoff and corrupt for many younger people. After this scandal, can anyone really blame them for being turned off and dissolution?

Many of these younger voters, were people who have never voted before. Because of this scandal within the Democratic National Committee, many of them will probably be further alienated and never bother to vote. Their current attitude will be genuine. For something like this to happen at a time when the Democrats are trying to attract younger people into the system, is a disaster.

As an older person, I can’t say as I really blame them a damn bit for having these feelings. If I were in the position, I would probably be alienated right along with them. Disillusionment with the Democratic Party is something that is not new for me. Over 20 years ago I became so pissed off with the Democratic Party that I left and joined the Green Party; something I have never regretted.

After the revelation by Donna Brazile, in her new book, that corruption within the Democratic National Committee was real, I am thinking very actively of rejoining the Green Party out of disgust and a feeling of betrayal. I rejoined the Democratic Party just so I could vote for Senator Bernie Sanders, someone I strongly feel is capable of being a great president. In my opinion, Senator Bernie Sanders is just what this country needs and deserves.

The Democratic National Committee has shown itself to be shortsighted, not to mention entirely partisan, by accepting Hillary Clinton as their candidate for president of the United States. America could have done better and deserved better. Don’t get me wrong, because I don’t feel that Hillary Clinton is a corrupt person. The reason I don’t support her is that she isn’t the best candidate. Hillary Clinton represents the status quo that I hate more than anything. She has too many ties to Wall Street and big business to make me feel comfortable with her as a candidate. Over the years, she has taken too many campaign contributions from the healthcare industry and big Pharma, both of whom I don’t trust to give the best healthcare system for a deserving populace that badly needs one.

As long as the Democratic Party insists on running a status quo candidate, I refuse to support them. This country needs a true progressive candidate, not another “player within the system” like Hillary or anyone else. We need a true progressive.

If the Democratic Party is incapable of giving us that, then maybe we should continue denying them our support. Perhaps they will change the practice of partisan politics within the party when voters start leaving the Democratic Party. Even though by doing so we run much risk of surrendering to the Right, the risk is worth it. Donald Trump is probably going to ruin the United States and if the Democratic Party doesn’t try to at least save us the indignity of having your country flushed down the toilet by Trump and his minions, then what good are they?

VP Mike Pence Uses National Anthem Kneeling Controversy As a Blatant PR Stunt

VP Mike Pence Uses National Anthem Kneeling Controversy As a Blatant PR Stunt

With faux indignation, Vice President Mike Pence left an NFL game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers, after several members of the 49ers knelt during the national anthem. He said in a Tweet, which has apparently become the preferred method that the White House has to communicate with the public, the Vice President said he would not “dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or Our National Anthem”. Oh Please! Spare us the bullshit, Pence!

Later President Donald Trump, not to be outdone on Twitter, tweeted that he had asked the Vice President to leave the game. Which one was it? Did the Vice President leave on his own accord or was he following orders from Donald Trump? They can’t have it both ways.

Many people, including myself, think this thing smells pretty bad and is probably a lie or at least a distraction from the real issues that have confronted the Trump administration lately. Since I have been watching what has been unfolding on news lately about the Trump administration, I would be willing to bet the latter is true. This thing is nothing more than a distraction.

I say this because several things don’t quite add up here. Vice President Mike Pence, like President Trump, usually travels with an entourage of reporters and other press people. This time he did not. His usual press entourage was mysteriously missing. Could this be because Mike Pence had no intention of staying at the game and his abrupt departure was preplanned? I’m willing to bet it is!

Once again the Trump administration, this time through Mike Pence, is making the ludicrous and unfounded claim that protesting during the national anthem is somehow disrespectful to our soldiers, even though many veterans disagree and say that they thought for the preservation of the US Constitution which guarantees people in the freedom to express themselves. I happen to agree with them.

Lately, as most people who follow the news, know that several members of the Trump administration have been found guilty of using public funds to pay for their own personal travel expenses. One member of the Trump cabinet even went so far as to try using public funds pay for his honeymoon. It makes me wonder if these tickets to this football game that Mike Pence attended were even paid for by taxpayers dollars.

Antifa: Hurting the Cause Of the Left Against Trump

As I was watching video of the anti-Trump demonstrations on YouTube, it was apparent to me how much Antifa is damaging the cause against Donald Trump.

Antifa: Hurting the Cause Of the Left Against Trump

As I was watching a video of the anti-Trump demonstrations on YouTube, it was apparent to me how much Antifa is damaging the cause against Donald Trump. By committing random acts of violence, as seen in the screen capture I included in this article. Antifa is actually helping supporters of Donald Trump gain the credibility they would be unable to achieve on their own. They are doing this by giving the pro-Trump something I badly need to achieve sympathy from the public; martyrs.

People always sympathize with martyrs and have the tendency to embrace whatever the martyrs represent. By and large, the supporters of Donald Trump represent everything that is wrong with America, although our Constitution guarantees them the right to believe whatever they want or say whatever they want, no matter how reprehensible it is to other people. Even though sometimes the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is hard to defend, mostly because it gives free speech to hateful people, I will defend it because I do not in any way condone suppressing anyone’s freedom of speech. After all, I would not want my freedom of speech curtailed or interfered with.

Even though I absolutely don’t agree with what the supporters of Donald Trump stand for, in this case, racism, I also do not agree with violence being committed against them. No matter how much I may hate what they represent, especially racism, I condemn the actions of Antifa. They only make themselves look as bad as what they pretend to hate. By using violence to put forth their point, Antifa always serves to harm the cause of the Left against Donald Trump. In many ways, their actions make them guilty of “aiding and abetting the enemy”.

Ironically, the person who steps in to intervene and prevent any further attack on the person was an African-American male, one of the people that most pro-Trump supporters are against. Wouldn’t it be great if the pro-Trump supporter who was saved saw the error of his ways is supporting Donald Trump and gave up his racist beliefs, considering he actually had any such beliefs in the first place.

The word, “Antifa” means anti-fascist. Do these people honestly think that acting like fascists make them any better than the fascists that follow Donald Trump and his racist vitriol? I sure as hell don’t! I also greatly resent Antifa for acting like they represent the Left because they certainly do not represent me or anyone who shares my beliefs. I say this as a person who considers himself to be a true member of the Left.

I also greatly resent Antifa representing themselves as anarchists, because I also represent myself as an anarchist. Anarchism is a political philosophy that in no way condones the type of violence that Antifa uses to suppress people who disagree with them. Anarchism is truest, the purest sense is basically a utopian belief that is totally against violence. There is no way that Antifa can possibly call themselves true believers in anarchism.

I also found the story to be very interesting because it gives a history of the Antifa/Black Bloc movement and its origins.

Movement to the Left is the Democratic Party’s Only Hope of Survival

The results in Georgia show that the Trump resistance can show up to the polls, but centrism isn’t a strategy to win.

Movement to the Left is the Democratic Party’s Only Hope of Survival

If the Democratic Party hopes to prevail and become the primary party in power in this country, they need to move to the Left. Instead of clinging to the status quo, or “business as usual”, The Democratic Party should stop trying to pander to both the business community and the working class at the same time. This simply won’t work any longer.

I believe this is a major reason that most people identify with the Democrats have a tendency to stay away from the polls and not vote. Even though they may not consider the Republican Party as the party that best represents their interests, they also don’t consider the Democratic Party to represent them either. As a result, most people who might vote Democratic, don’t bother voting at all; something that is hurting this entire country. The primary reason the Republican party is the party in power is that Republicans usually don’t just sit out an election. They go out and vote.

Many ideas which were once considered to be too progressive or even as radical, are now considered as mainstream, centrist ideas. Ideas such as single-payer healthcare, raising the minimum wage, and concentrating on repairing this country’s infrastructure, are now embraced by most Americans as being centrist or middle of the road. The Democratic Party is making a huge mistake by not using the change in people’s attitudes towards once radical ideas, to further not only their interests as a party but the betterment of the nation.

As long as the Democratic Party insists on trying to be all things to all people, it will only continue to decline in both popularity and power. If they are truly the party of the working class, as they have always tried to represent themselves, they badly need to start proving it. The Democratic Party needs to change his entire strategy to survive in the face of the increasing power of the GOP.

The Democratic Party needs to take a firm stand in favor of working-class Americans and start adopting bolder ideas. If they don’t, people will have no other choice but to resort to drastic means to protect themselves from the atrocities of the Republican Party, the latest being the Republican Health Care Bill which will devastate the health and well-being of millions of American citizens.

Bernie Sanders Takes a Reporter To School

 

Bernie Sanders Takes a Reporter to School

This video shows a major reason I would love and appreciate Bernie 8anders even if I wasn’t already a diehard supporter. Bernie Sanders isn’t afraid to take on anyone if they are saying something that makes no sense, or seems to be ridiculous.  This is a quality that I respect in a person.  Calling it as you see it shows that Bernie Sanders is a very honest person and is worthy of great respect.

In this video, Bernie Sanders gets angry at a reporter who asked him a stupid question about who Sen. Sanders thinks may run for president in 2020. Apparently, Bernie Sanders thinks this question is ridiculous and inappropriate, especially since we haven’t even inaugurated Donald Trump yet.

I think this anger, express by Bernie Sanders, may not be directed against the reported as it is the current situation in this country. Maybe he was thinking about the fact that he probably would have won the presidency, instead of Donald Trump as he had been the candidate instead of Hillary Clinton.

This latter statement is something that I truly believe to be true. Bernie Sanders would have defeated Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, if he had been the Democratic candidate.
