Hope Hicks Admits to “Little White Lies

In 2012, Hope Hicks worked for Ivanka Trump’s shoe line.  By 2014, she was the Trump Organization’s (is that an oxymoron?) Communications Director.  Today, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks testified before the House Intel Committee.  She revealed that on occasion, she tells little white lies for her boss Donald Trump.

white lie –  a harmless, often trivial, diplomatic or well-intentioned untruth; a minor unimportant lie uttered in the interest of tact or politeness; a lie not meant to delude another to protect oneself

 

 

 

 

National Disgrace

The Rise and Fall of Donald Trump

Blowhard  [ˈblōˌhärd] (noun): A person who talks too much or too loudly, especially in a boastful or self-important manner.  A person who blusters and boasts in an unpleasant way; a braggart, windbag, loudmouth, gasbag, asshole, ass wipe, dumb ass, dick, idiot, etc.

Donald Trump has a small penis.  Everyone knows that the guy with the biggest gun has the smallest penis…

The “liberal media” loves a good story.  Donald Trump is a “showman”, a carnival barker, a racist son of a bitch.  Thus, the rise of the Donald.  But please “liberal media”, don’t insult my intelligence by sitting around your glass tables pontificating as to why Donald Trump has such large crowds and has lasted so long as front-runner, as I sit and watch 30 minutes of a Trump rally, where he spoke about his poll numbers, how large his crowd was, how everything was going to be beautiful, about the fact that he hasn’t spent any money-he wants to spend money, but he’s getting all this free publicity…  and how stupid the media is – you know, “those idiots at the back of the room”, you know, the ones that never show his large crowds (camera then shows his audience), you know, the ones that never pan the crowd (camera then pans the room).  Oh.  He meant those idiots.

Then, the broadcast returned to the studio where the talking heads spoke Trump for another 20 minutes, then returned to his rally.  Hmmm… I wonder how he did it?  I’m sure the “liberal media” policy of: 24/7, everything Trump – had nothing to do with it. Make no mistake, Donald Trump is not the national disgrace.  The liberal media is.  It is they who embraced the Tea Party and their blatant racism toward Pres. Obama.  It is they who gave the Tea party the platform  to speak and represented them as a majority, not the minority of “Americans” (instead of Republican-Americans) that they were.  It is they who embraced the Birther Movement and Donald Trump’s ridiculous demand to see Pres. Obama’s birth certificate.  It is they who, with the help of the Republican Party, laid the ground work for today’s political environment; one filled with fear, racism, and divisiveness.  http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=donald+trump+rally&&view=detail&mid=81A4213288428EA2505081A4213288428EA25050&FORM=VRDGAR  It is they who are the national disgrace.

“People see him as the strongest to deal with foreign policy, the economy, on all the issues, and national security, that voters care about.” – Mark Halprin, Morning Joe

But why does no one ask: “Based on what?” His ability to bloviate?  Certainly not on his policy proposals;  Making America Great Again by: Building a wall that “the Mexicans” will pay for (and it will be beautiful-the biggest most beautiful wall that you have ever seen).  Fixing the economy – the one that corporations (of which Donald Trump owns more than a few) have enjoyed making record profits in for the last 7 years of the Obama administration.  Helping the middle class; cutting their, as well as corporate taxes (because what, corporations need another tax cut? or does he have faith in the “Trickle Down Theory”?, and if the rich getting richer is such a good thing, please explain why the United States is suffering [middle class, poor point of view] from the largest gap of income inequality in its history?).  Defeating Isis-by “bombing the shit out of them”  http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=donald+trump+on+isis&&view=detail&mid=E5FFE446F4342D359E3EE5FFE446F4342D359E3E&FORM=VRDGAR because bombs have worked so well so far…  Well, at least we can have confidence in his negotiation skills.  After all, he is a multi-billionaire right? “One figure that was missing: Trump’s net worth.” – http://www.politico.com/story/2015/07/donald-trump-financial-disclosure-120472 I mean, he’s smart and everyone else is stupid right?  http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=donald+trump+rally&&view=detail&mid=7802CD8EEB61ADA8BC137802CD8EEB61ADA8BC13&FORM=VRDGAR

If all it takes to become President of the United States is to be a racist carnival barker who talks in circles but says nothing, a bully who bases his political campaign on personal attacks resulting in emotional not cerebral commentary, a candidate who has no policy plans other than “Its gonna be beautiful.”, well ladies and gentlemen, meet your new president…

You’re almost there buddy.  Blow harder Donald.  Blow harder.

The Face of Revolution?

bernie2 Yup.

The roof, the roof is apparently on fire. Well, we don’t need no water… we’ve got Bernie.  Bernie baby, Bernie!  The self proclaimed Socialist is giving the Democratic debutante a run for her (or should I say the big bank’s) money.  Free from the shackles of corporate sponsorship, the Sanders campaign is being carried by an enthusiastic grass-roots movement, spawning spry, if not rich, individual donors.  So sprightly in fact, that his campaign recently broke Pres. Obama’s fundraising record – 2.3 million individual donations to Pres. Obama’s 2.2 million by the end of the year.  The majority were small donations with the average donation at $25.00.  He is close to, and is expected to surpass Hillary Clinton’s $29 million fundraising effort by the end of this quarter.  Should she be concerned?  Yup.

Not only in money but support as well, Sanders has closed in if not surpassed Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire respectively.  If not already blinded by the prospect of having a vagina as president https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHJEtTZJ9rY , supporting Sanders should not be a difficult decision. After all, a Socialist by any other name is a Democrat.  He appears to be concerned with the same issues as the majority of the Liberal base; channeling an older, whiter, Elizabeth Warren*.  Could that be the reason the Democratic Party recently blocked the Sanders campaign from its own donor information; a way to slow down his momentum – especially in Iowa? – with the caucus right around the corner?  Within the realm of possibility?  Yup.

Bernie Sanders’ Hillary moment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrBXcKcviuc .

Hillary Clinton’s Hillary moment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mByd4TCoWao .

I rest my case.

* Where the hell is she anyway and what the fuck was that meeting about between her and Hillary Clinton right around the time Clinton announced her Presidential bid and why was Warren the only no-show at the Clinton fundraiser where the other 13 female Democratic senators showed up to support her and why is she not supporting Bernie Sanders anyway?

 

 

 

Convention Bumps and Bruises

The Seeds of Discontent

“Republicans who want Mitt Romnay to win – who desperately want Barack Obama out of the race, had  better hope that people like Karl Rove and others that have influence in this campaign start going to the candidate and getting in his face and saying ‘we’re investing a lot of time, a lot of effort and a lot of money in you buddy and you better get your stuff together, and the next time you go on a national Sunday show, you’d better have some answers.  You’re not going to be able to coast into victory; you will coast into a 52 – 48 loss.'” – Joe Scarborough (Morning Joe).  Even devoted partisan,  Republican defender Mark Halperin stated, “The President has a meaningful lead and it’s not tied or within the margin of error.”

It seems reality has set in.  Republican party members are publicly (and Mitt Romney’s team privately), acknowledging the “bump” the DNC received from their convention and the lack of one for the Republicans.  Polls show Pres. Obama with 49% of the vote, and Mitt Romney with 44%.  Even the Republican skewing Rasmussen Poll shows:  Obama: 50%  Romney: 45%.

Uh-oh, better ramp up the voter suppression guys!

Exercise in Futility

  Resistance is Futile

The Borg-like Mitt Romney suffered incredible primary losses in the southern states of Mississippi and Alabama last night.  Once again he showed he cannot win in the South.  Lucky for Mitt he will be running agin a negro Nazi, socialistic communist, Keynesian Marxist Muslim who hates white people and wants to take their guns away.

The longer the Republican primary race goes on, the more it seems that Mitt the Inevitable may become Mitt the Fortuitous (if he is allowed the nomination).  The Republican party is going to have to pull a rabbit out of the proverbial bag of dirty tricks if they want their man in.  Can’t wait for the show.

President Obama on the other hand?  Well, what will the Republican agenda be when he wins in November?  To make sure he doesn’ t win a third term?  Will they be able to overcome their racist tendencies and work with him to actually help the American people?  Or, will we give President Obama what he needs – overwhelming majorities in both the House and Senate – to do the things he knows that we know that he knows we want him to do?

Exxon Effoff

  Republicans Full of Gas

     By now we all know that the United States consumes approx. 20% of the world’s oil while our domestic production capacity sits at 2%.  We could not drill enough oil here in America to supply our own addicted demand, much less influence world oil prices.  Yet Republican presidential hopefuls continue to blame President Obama for the spike in prices at the tank.  Newt Gingrich even goes so far as to say,  if he’s elected President, gas prices will be $2.50/gallon.  Remember when John McCain said he knew where Osama Bin Laden was?  All we had to do was elect him President and he would tell us.  Well we all know where Osama is now don’t we?

     Interesting interview yesterday.  Matt Lauer of the Today Show asked about the increase in gasoline prices.  Rex Tillerson, Chairman and CEO of Exxon (the world’s largest oil company) stated: “What drove these prices up is entirely the crude oil price.  Supply and demand is fine.  So what’s led to this most recent run-up?  Obviously concerns about the rhetoric over the closing of the Strait of Hormuz and the conflicts with Iran.”  What?  Did he just say that?  Yes, yes he did.  The 1%er confirmed that Wall  St. speculators are responsible for the drastic and sudden increases in gas prices.  Not President Obama.  So sorry Republicans, I guess it’s back to the drawing board!

p.s.  – Drill baby drill!

The Norquist Quest Continues…

Operation: Usurp

President Grover Glenn Norquist. The man, the myth, the fact, the fiction.  Instead of striving to achieve the perfection of the vision of our forefathers – a life espoused by the the Constitution, Grover Norquist appears intent upon morphing it, changing the country into a mutated version of his own creation.   Like a dog with a bone, he won’t let go.  His apparent contempt for the Constitution fuels his end run around it.  Why run for office when through lies, manipulation, bribery, blackmail, race-baiting, intimidation and cleverly planted puppets, you can force your personal agenda upon an entire country?

Can we get this man his own country?  On the moon perhaps?  Newt Gingrich will never be President of the United States but,  hmmm…

Oily Taint / Santorum Connection?

      Taitz goes Black

     The leader of the birther movement, Orly Taitz, seems to be interested in a little strange.  Republican apologist Allen West is about as strange as they come.  The Florida congressman is on her radar because of his latest outburst.  He demanded that Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, and Pres. Barack Obama “Get the hell out of the United States of America! (and he did say hell)”  Orly is trying to hook up with the Tea Party Republican in a bid to keep her fictitious  movement relevant; by using him as a “congressional surrogate” for her BM (birther guys, birther).  I’m sure Pres. Obama hopes they get together so he won’t have to see her again.   But doesn’t an Orly Taitz / Santorum alliance seem more…   humorous?

Conservatives Shun Republican Party

Joe Scarborough: Republicans are not Conservative

     Joe:  “When Ronald Reagan ran in 1980, aides and everybody talked about how he was stupid.  We found out after he passed away that every time he sat on a plane, a train, a car, he was constantly reading, constantly writing things down – so by 1980 he understood what it meant to be a Conservative. (Reading Mika’s eyes one could imagine her thinking “comic books and tic-tac-toe”).  We conservatives feel betrayed by the Republican Party.  George Dubya Bush was going to be a conservative president; he doubled the national debt, he took a $150 billion surplus and turned it into a $1 trillion deficit.  He said he was going to rid the world of tyranny in all four corners.  Bush’s ideas were not conservative ideas.  So are we going to rush into the arms of Mitt Romney and make it 4 more years of big government Republicanism (not Conservatism)?  Just telling me Mitt Romney is not as bad as Barack Obama – that’s not enough for me.”

     Frankly, to hear those words coming out of a Republican mouth – shocking!  I remember when Bush the Illegitimate  was in office, each and every one of his policies were vigorously defended by the Republicans.  If one were to disagree, you would be called “un-American” and the Republican party would search for ways to crush you either personally or professionally. Ask the Dixie Chicks.  Ask Helen Thomas.  How soon we forget.  The one trait Conservatives and Republicans share?  Hypocrisy.

      A shout-out to Starbucks Coffee.  Whatever you’re putting in the coffee – keep it up!

Iowa Caucai

                    Ubiquitous Santorum -or- Iowaaaaa?

     Santorum is on everyone’s lips today.  And rightfully so.  Presidential contender Rick Santorum placed a very close and very respectable 2nd in the first Republican presidential contest.  9 votes and he would have won.  Having not nearly as much financial backing as Mitt Romney, he employed an alternate tactic and canvassed the hell out of Iowa.  Spending 250 days and stopping at each of Iowa’s 99 counties paid off.  In the group of right wing ideologues with cockeyed ideas, he is second on the list.  Congratulations!

– question for the Iowa voters: What the hell is a Pizza Ranch?
