The Real Enemy of the American People

"The people are the only censors of their governors: and even their errors will tend to keep these to the true principles of their institution. To punish these errors too severely would be to suppress the only safeguard of the public liberty. The way to prevent these irregular interpositions of the people is to give them full information of their affairs thro’ the channel of the public papers, & to contrive that those papers should penetrate the whole mass of the people. The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers & be capable of reading them." --Thomas Jefferson

Trump tweeted: 

The media are the 'enemy of the American people'

His followers, without using what's left of their minds to think, dutifully agreed, like good little sheeple.

Donald Trump's America:

This is how Lord Dampnut inspires a nation of free men and women:

Kill the free press and destroy the 1st Amendment that millions of men and women died in countless wars to protect.

That's what you've got for a president, Nation, a pant-wetting coward who can't take criticism of him by the media as every other president has, going back to the founding of America.

Trump is not just a coward and weak little  pissy-pant cry-baby, but he is a danger to our American democracy.

No. The media are not the enemy of the American people.

Loud-mouthed, narcissistic demagogic presidents who know nothing about our democracy and how it works are the enemy of America and her people.

Sunday Night Funnies

Tiny Trumps is a new subreddit page that features the little fella in his daily life. From Melania making sure he doesn't take a tumble to Obama doing his best not to laugh to Trumpkin entertaining Justin Trudeau, Tiny Trumps is my current go-to when I need a good chuckle.

Saturday Night Music

Let's get away from the madness of King Donald and enjoy some art:

Alexander Hamilton!


This is the sort of thuggish behavior we'd expect from Putin or Assad, or Kim Jong Un, or Erdo─čan , just to name a few dictators who get rid of media that aren't "friendly" to the strongman:

 Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, recently met with CNN's parent company Time Warner and mentioned the cable news network's coverage of the administration as slanted.

During the meeting at the White House, Kushner expressed concerns about what the administration considers is CNN's unfair coverage of the President to Gary Ginsberg, 

Time Warner's executive vice president of corporate marketing and communications, two persons familiar with the situation said. One of the persons said that topics of the discussion included Israel and Kushner made a joking reference to CNN's perceived anti-Trump coverage. 

Trump disparaged CNN during his press conference Thursday while taking a question from CNN's senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta noting "the hatred coming from other people on your network." The president has made clear his disdain for CNN. 

A month ago, during Trump's first full press conference after being elected, he called CNN a peddler of "fake news" because the network had produced a story reporting that the U.S. intelligence officials had presented Trump and President Obama with a "dossier" of unverified, but potentially compromising information about the president-elect that Russian operatives claimed to have.


We need more, not less, anti-Trump coverage and reporting. Trump- and his pissant little son-in-law need a lesson on the First Amendment. How dare Jared Kushner intimidate a newspaper over its coverage of his father-in-law. This makes Trump look like a chicken-yellow little snot, sending his baby-boy son-in-law out to tell critics to make nice-nice with the temperamental diaper preznit.  Trump and his mafiosi-like family have only reinforced what America and the rest of the world think of Trump: He's a whiney-ass titty-baby, unfit to be president; a coward, who wets his pants and throws a tantrum every time someone publishes a story that doesn't flatter his ego.

American men and women bled on battlefields to defend our Constitution. We will not allow billionaire fancy-boys to threaten one of our greatest freedoms -- the freedom to call bull$hi+ on liars, cheats, and con-artists who think they're above the law because they're the POTUS.

This will not stand. CNN needs to keep up the unrelenting coverage of The Maniac-in-Chief.

Contact CNN and tell them you, as a free American, support the freedom of the press -- all media -- and every citizen who chooses to disagree with a public official -- but especially this "unnaturally fluorescent mass of insecurities."

Those who intimidate and try to curtail the freedom of the press are the real enemies of America.  

Never believe otherwise.

Really, really funny...

and apt description of the "so-called" Leader of the Free World. (The Brits have a special way with rhetoric, and it's glorious!):

Piss-eyed Tango monster demands everyone say nice things about it

The unnaturally fluorescent mass of insecurities, apparently incapable of understanding basic logic, told press that the real story was how incredible it was and how much everyone loved it. 

 The thing, which blankly opened and closed a hole in its face even when not speaking as if in an autonomous feeding reflex, was able to respond to human speech but experts believe it is simply mimicry, devoid of meaning. 

 BBC reporter Julian Cook said: “It appeared to answer questions, but when you read back the answers they’re nothing but a torrent of unconnected words mixed with a keening refrain of pathetic self-praise. 

 “We believe this creature actually feeds on adulation and has adapted to seek out high concentrations of it, but instead is now exposed to unprecedented levels of toxic criticism causing it to lash out.”

 He added: “Its neediness is almost to be pitied, if it wasn’t such a contemptible sack of orange shit.”
