First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama






 Michelle Obama Just Delivered the Most Powerful Speech of the 2016 CampaignSpeaking of how she has been “shaken…to my core” by Trump’s predatory language, the first lady declares: “This is intolerable.”



There remains a moral high ground in American politics, and on Thursday Michelle Obama spoke from it.



"Because consider this: If all of this is painful to us as grown women, what do you think this is doing to our children? What messages are our little girls hearing about who they should look like, how they should act? What lessons are they learning about their value as professionals, as human beings, about their dreams and aspirations? 

And how is this affecting men and boys in this country? Because I can tell you that the men in my life do not talk about women like this. And I know that my family is not unusual. And to dismiss this as everyday locker-room talk is an insult to decent men everywhere. The men that you and I know don't treat women this way. 

They are loving fathers who are sickened by the thought of their daughters being exposed to this kind of vicious language about women. They are husbands and brothers and sons who don't tolerate women being treated and demeaned and disrespected. And like us, these men are worried about the impact this election is having on our boys who are looking for role models of what it means to be a man."

NOTE: Trump says his opponent "is the devil," he says — "hate her with all your heart." Forget about the rule of law. "Lock her up!" [..]

From Digby:

Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. is convinced that House Speaker Paul Ryan and the GOP establishment plotted the release of the “Access Hollywood” tape in which Trump bragged about assaulting women:

I think this whole . . . videotape thing was planned, I think it was timed, I think it might have even been a conspiracy among establishment Republicans who have known about it for weeks and who tried to time it to do the maximum damage to Donald Trump, and . . . I just think it just backfired on them.

Meanwhile, Trump’s white supremacist backers blame “the Jews” — specifically Jewish Republicans:


The 35% or so of the country that is hardcore pro-Trump is going to know that it wasn’t “liberals” that defeated Trump, but traitors within the party who abandoned him. And they are going to want to know why that happened. And there is only one answer: The Jews did it.


On the stump Wednesday in Florida, Trump riffed on the latest dark plot: the FBI, the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton’s campaign have conspired to keep her out of jail.

"Folks, this is out of control. And the FBI, unbelievable people. You have incredible people in the FBI. I would be willing to bet that they are so ashamed of what’s happened at the upper level. I would bet they don’t even sleep at night. These are great Americans and they can’t believe what’s going on. This corruption and collusion is just one more reason why I will ask my attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor."

Regardless of anything trump may say, how can anyone believe our government and bought and paid for politicians are not totally corrupt.
Their only goals are spend your money, find ways to get more and keep their job.

This is not a party issue, it is a corruption issue. The established politicians on both sides are very thankful -H- will win because nothing will change and they can go on doing what they want without any interference.

Here's a question asked by an idiot:

When's the last time the Democrat Party stood up for working Americans?



Democrats Add $15 Minimum Wage to Platform, July 2016

President Obama Signs the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

President Obama's bailout of the auto industry, saving thousands of working class jobs

President Barack Obama's new federal regulation that will requires employers to pay overtime to salaried workers who make less than $47,500 per year.


Hillary Clinton proposes Paid Family Leave that will guarantee up to 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave to care for a new child or a seriously ill family member, and up to 12 weeks of medical leave to recover from a serious illness or injury of their own.


Those are just a few. There are others.

There is no party called the Democrat Party; just another example of the ignorance of the right.
