This is what American spirit looks like. This is what American anger looks like. This is what American Resistance looks like.
A New Jersey constituent stands up and verbally slays Republican House Rep McArthur calling the Congressman out on his Trumpcare vote, his lies, his working with Paul Ryan and other lawmakers who don’t care and his hypocrisy.
Don’t trust republicans especially congressional republicans.Their objective is evil — funnel money to rich friends and to hell with the rest of the world.
So Jeff Flake and Bob Corker sound good but look at how they vote: joining the republican herd cutting taxes, healthcare, regulatory protections and god knows what’s else.
The party needs Trump to get what they want. Let them all turn against Trump. But don’t hold your breath. They are mostly whores. Their MO — If you want to succeed you have to be trumpion. They are putting money above morals and country.
The Daily Kos just ran an article titled: Former Wharton Professor: “Donald Trump Was the Dumbest Goddam Student I Ever Had.”
Check it out. Also check out the comments that follow the article. They are all good. Here are two of my favorites:
I just wrote a letter to the editor of the NYTimes, after all the b.s. he’s done to undermine Obama on healthcare, Iran, climate change, etc. I said, just like Vlad the Impaler, Attila the Hun, Ivan the Terrible,and Jack the Ripper, we have a new villain: Donald the Destroyer. Bob659
He’s not a complete idiot. Some parts are missing.
Let’s call things by their proper names here. Arpaio is, of course, a white supremacist. But he’s more than that. There’s a word for political regimes that round up members of minority groups and send them to concentration camps, while rejecting the rule of law: What Arpaio brought to Maricopa, and what the president of the United States has just endorsed, was fascism, American style.
Amoral and Racist Behavior Does it matter that Jeff Sessions, the attorney general, tried to justify Donald Trump’s immigration cruelty with junk economics?
It’s definitely not the main issue. Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy is, above all else, immoral. The 800,000 beneficiaries of DACA — the so-called Dreamers — have done nothing wrong; they came to the United States illegally, but not of their own volition, because they were children at the time.
First of all Trump is a regime not a presidency and is especially authoritarian. But is the power of this regime becoming diminished?
According to Robert Reich Trump can be made irrelevant and it is starting to happen. Read on:
From an August 21 NYT’s column: What Will Trump Do to American Workers?
With Steve Bannon out of the White House, it’s clearer than ever that Donald Trump’s promise to be a populist fighting for ordinary workers was worth about as much as any other Trump promise — that is, nothing.
His agenda, such as it is, amounts to reverse Robin Hood with extra racism — the conventional Republican strategy of taking from struggling families to give to the rich, while distracting lower-income whites by attacking Those People, with the only difference being just how blatantly he plays the race card.
The point is that progressives shouldn’t celebrate too much over Trump’s legislative failures. As long as he’s in office, he retains a lot of power to betray the working people who supported him. And in case you haven’t noticed, betraying those who trust him is a Trump specialty.
Former US defence secretary William Cohen and ex-presidential adviser Ron Christie on Mr Trump’s reaction to a white supremacist rally.
Not under Trump. He panders to the alt-right and the domestic terrorism of the neo-nazis and white supremacists. In fact they are a significant part of his base.
Charlottesville and a Michael Lewis article, Why the Scariest Nuclear Treat May Be Coming from Inside the White House, has opened my eyes. This blog is no longer limited to exposing the false claims of fact and the illogic that underlie Trump’s actions.
Trump has shown his true colors. He panders to the above mentioned groups and criminal leaders like Vladimir Putin and Rodrigo Duterte. He fails to recognize critical functions of national government — e.g., healthcare, environmental protection, and nuclear risks. These and other factors demonstrate that:
- he does not understand what public service means,
- does not stand for the greater good,
- lacks understanding of what our national government actually does,
- supports and condones the criminal activity of reprehensible groups and leaders,
- is clearly amoral and unfit to be president.
