Still not convinced that the current GOP is a rogue, anti-American group of fascists? Read this:

Nearly half of Republicans think Trump should be able to close news outlets: poll

Anti-Semites and Nazis have found a VERY comfortable home in the current GOP.



TRUMP'S AMERICA

MISSOURI REPUBLICAN WHO SAID ‘HITLER WAS RIGHT’ WINS STATE HOUSE PRIMARY 


“Jewish people can be beautiful people, but there’s ideologies associated with that that I don’t agree with...Jews today are a remnant of the tribe of Judah that rejected Christ.” 

BY JOSEFIN DOLSTEN/JTA AUGUST 12, 2018  

"A Missouri Republican who has made anti-Semitic and other bigoted statements handily won a primary for the state’s House of Representatives. 

 Steve West, who promotes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on a radio show he hosts, defeated three other candidates Tuesday in the bid for a seat representing Clay County. He won with 49.5 percent of the vote; the second-place finisher had 24.4 percent."






We've read many right-wing blogs and news sites that confirm the sickening reality that anti-Semitism is accepted by Goopers.

Think of the thousands of men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice fighting in WW II against the Nazis and then think about the idiot POTUS. He spends his time whining about African-American athletes exercising their Constitutional right to protest an injustice, but President Porn Star Shagger says nothing about the GOP and its acceptance of Nazi filth into its organization.

I've had a couple of Trump cultists come here to crow about the POTUS's approval numbers. And they do this out of desperation because they actually know how despised President Spanky is by a majority of Americans and by the rest of the civilized world.

#45 is at 40% approval, not 50% -- the fake number his cultists left in my comment section. #45's cultists and family members are possibly bigger liars and charlatans than he is. They're certainly as stupid as #45 is:



Donald Trump Jr. Deletes False Instagram That Claims Father Is More Popular Than Obama


"Donald Trump Jr. deleted a doctored image from his Instagram Friday, which showed his father’s approval rating at 50%. 

 The falsified image originated from a CNN segment that aired on Monday, which compared numbers from the same period in the past two presidencies. 

It showed President Donald Trump’s current 40% approval rating, compared to former president Barack Obama’s 45%, as well as unemployment rates and jobs added.

Trump Jr. posted a doctored image on Wednesday that had a “50%” overlaid on top of Trump’s approval rating. The original 40% figure was still slightly visible over the poorly-doctored 50%. Trump Jr. included the caption, “Amazing. I guess there is a magic wand to make things happen and @realdonaldtrump seems to have it #maga #americafirst."

A liar and cheat -- just like his father.

The wearisome double standard



"If it weren't for double standards, the Republican Party would have no standards at all."





Mike Pence during the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal:


"If you and I fall into bad moral habits, we can harm our families, our employers and our friends. The President of the United States can incinerate the planet. Seriously, the very idea that we ought to have at or less than the same moral demands placed on the Chief Executive that we place on our next door neighbor is ludicrous and dangerous. Throughout our history, we have seen the presidency as the repository of all of our highest hopes and ideals and values. To demand less is to do an injustice to the blood that bought our freedoms.

 Our leaders must either act to restore the luster and dignity of the institution of the Presidency or we can be certain that this is only the beginning of an even more difficult time for our land."



This is the guy Mike Pence said was a blessing to serve as his VP:

EVERYTHING TRUMP TOUCHES DIES 
by Rick Wilson



Rick writes: “Everything we Never Trump folks warned you of, including massive, decades-long downstream election losses, is coming. Alienating African Americans and Hispanics beyond redemption? Check. Raising a generation of young voters who are fleeing the GOP in droves? Check. Age-old beefs, juvenile complaints, and ego bruises taking center stage while the world burns? Check. Playing public footsie with white supremacists and neo-Nazis? Check. Blistering pig-ignorance about the economy and the world? Check. … Shredding the last iota of the GOP’s credibility as a party that cares about debt, deficits, and fiscal probity? Check.” 

 [Wildon] goes on to absolutely clobber the voters who make up Trump’s base and devour his conspiratorial ramblings: “Honestly, at this point, it’s almost a moral imperative to slap the stupid out of them.”

[snip]


"We underestimated the deep human psychological need to be part of a movement based not on hope but on channeling the comments section of the nuttiest blogs. That’s what Trump gave them. He was an avatar for their anger, their impotence, and their blamestorming for everything wrong in their world.”

One of #45's "enemy of the people."


Andrew Chopivsky
AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE - Back in 2003 my friend Michael was a journalist with TIME Magazine. He was in a Humvee in Iraq. He was there to report back to you on the war.
Michael's wife worked with me. There were several times when they were over at our house and we talked, we ate shrimp, we laughed, and we drank too much. We attended several events together. Michael and Judith traveled to New York to attend our wedding. Michael is an award-winning investigative reporter and book author. He had been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
Back to the Humvee. Michael, an accompanying photographer, and several soldiers were in a Humvee when a grenade was tossed into it. Michael grabbed the grenade and started to toss it out the window when it exploded. Michael got shrapnel in his chest, in his arm, and he lost his right hand and lower part of his right arm. He took the brunt of the explosion and saved three lives.
I thought you might want to meet one of the enemies of the people.

Light Posting this week.

UPDATE BELOW



This is a very busy week with traveling starting on Tuesday and ending Sunday, to the coast of Maine and to Jamestown, R.I..

But there is always time to reinforce the fact that the GOP supports a suppurating open sore on America named Donald J. Trump who continues to embarrass himself and the U.S.A. with his petulance and childish Tweets that expose him as the sickening racist and imbecile that he is.






Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!




Did I mention I love Bill Russell, one of the greatest basketball players to ever play the game? And a decent, honorable human being? 



At this time & place for any African American, @KingJames @donlemon @RepMaxineWaters @repjohnlewis & plyrs to be criticised by @realdonaldtrump means you must be doing something right! As I have said before- Its the biggest compliment you can get. @TwitterSports @MSNBC @CNN




The Tweet below should be qualified. It should read "Only in Trumpista America.."






Just a friendly reminder: Donald J. Trump defrauded thousands of Americans with his fake "Trump University" and had to pay out $25 million to settle the law suit against him and his deplorable scam. 

LeBron James? 

Lebron James opens elementary school, guarantees college tuition to graduates





Who are the "Family Values" saps who continue to support President Porn Star Shagger?


UPDATE:

Here's some news that #45 will claim is "fake," and that his deplorable cultists will ignore, because it doesn't fit their delusional narrative of  Trump MAGA! The report below is another reason for President Spanky to delegitimize the media. He can call this report FAKE! and his brain-dead cultists will ignore it. 

But facts are stubborn things:



More jobs are being created in Democratic counties than GOP strongholds that voted for President Trump in 2016, according to an Associated Press analysis, contradicting the president's assertions that jobs are "flooding back" into economically vulnerable areas that voted him into office. 

The news service found that 58.5 percent of the significant job gains touted by Trump were concentrated in areas that backed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. The AP also found that 35.4 percent of Trump counties have lost jobs in the past year, compared to 19.2 percent of Clinton counties.
