The national Democratic Party elected a new chairman today, Tom Perez, an Obama - Clinton troll of Wall Street, the Podesta Group, and Washington D.C. lobbyists. The progressive candidate, Keith Ellison, finished second and was given an ill-defined job as Deputy Chairman. This election demonstrates that the DNC has learned nothing from losing the last election running the corporatist, opportunistic Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The fact that the party has lost almost 1000 legislative seats over the past ten years does not appear to phase the corporatist demos. They still insist on holding hands with the criminals on Wall Street, sucking-up to the Israeli lobby, and putting forth fence-riding mealy-mouth candidates is their modus operandi for winning despite the fact that they don't win.
With Perez's ascension, progressives can forget about single-payer healthcare, free college tuition, a reformed tax system, reforming Wall Street greed, elimination of bogus free trade deals (Perez supported TPP), and most other progressive initiatives that Senator Sanders put forth.
Progressives are stuck with a party of greedy insiders who live with the phony notion that they can be successful by working for the top 10% while ignoring the bottom 90%. The bottom 90% are begging for a progressive agenda to improve their economic and social standing and they have no where to turn except to a charlatan like Donald Trump and an uncaring GOP. The DNC had an opportunity to become the true party of the people but in the end they sold out, The DNC is dead!!!!!!
Throughout the disgusting political campaign of 2016, the Trump slogan MAGA has been his and his supporters rallying cry. The worthless US media, in their limited and profit-driven wisdom, normalizes it as just a slogan. But what would you expect? MAGA is simply a euphemism for MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN (MAWA) and for ultra ignorant, racist American voter that is what made Trump their candidate.
Trump received sixty-plus million votes or approximately twenty-five percent of the voting-eligible population. (Clinton received twenty-eight percent). It is safe to say that many of Trump's suckers are challenged in their knowledge of American history since anyone with a high school education would know that America was never white! In fact the western hemisphere was never white. The non-white indigenous peoples of the northern and southern hemisphere are the victims of Euro-trash invaders seeking to steal resources by committing genocide or enslaving the natives. Not a behavior to be particularly proud of but was a common occurrence six hundred years ago and continues to this day. (I refer you to two recent books: All the Real Indians Died Off by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz and They Came before Columbus by Ivan Van Sertima)
Of course Trump voters don't read they watch Faux News. The worthless media won't mention the real history because it might interfere with their profits as the CEO of CBS so elegantly stated in 2016. So when I hear the slogan, MAGA, I automatically equate it to MAWA and ask the question when was America ever great, especially, when you consider its four hundred year history past and present.
Wouldn't we be great if we recognized our past mistakes and worked diligently to correct them? Wouldn't we be great if we actually lived up to and followed the Constitution? Wouldn't we be great if we stopped the decades of racist imperialism in the over seventy non-white countries invaded over the last one hundred and fifty years? And wouldn't we be great if we had a society that did not accept forty million people living in poverty? I think that would make America great, what do you think?
Three headlines to consider:
Comey knew of the contacts and warned Trump. Comey was instrumental in smearing Hillary Clinton during the campaign.
Rocket science is not required to conclude that Trump is a traitor and Comey is a co-conspirator. We have reached a point in America at which citizens can have no confidence in their President or FBI Director and unfortunately our intelligence agencies can't trust them either.
Congressional Republicans will most likely do nothing to address this traitor's behavior due to their own corruption. According to Rmuse at Politicus USA.com: Republicans embrace cheats. Likely they would contain information exposing Trump’s corruption and financial ties to Russian mobsters, hidden accounts in a tax haven shared by Russian oligarchs, and all manner of sundry information Trump wants concealed from the public. Now it is crystal clear that Republicans on the Ways and Means committee are in collusion with Trump’s attempt to conceal his corruption.
So unless an independent prosecutor is appointed, we will be stuck with a traitor in the White House and a FBI Director unfit for his duties. Have a nice day America.
Recent polls of Republican voters (suckers) show that 35% of them believe that the Affordable Care Act(ACA) and Obamacare are different. Six years after its passage, countless Tea Party demonstrations, and sixty House GOP votes against the law this fact still exists in the nimble minds of GOP voters. Although that is amazing, I find the recent uproar at GOP House members' town hall meetings to be fascinating even more so. For example, a recent article at Raw Story: "Utah Republican Jason Chaffetz: Angry town hall protesters were paid to ‘bully and intimidate’ me". Or another headline: "Republican House Members Assailed by Angry Crowds at Town Halls in Utah, Tennessee" from GovNews.US. Finally, a real profile in courage: SEN. MCCONNELL FLED KY TARMAC IN AN SUV TO AVOID CONSTITUENTS, BUT FOUND THEM OUTSIDE HIS HOME TOO.
Obviously these "suckers" are upset about the possibility of losing their healthcare. But considering the fact that Red States governors have been reluctant or obstructing their citizens from participating in the ACA from the start, especially in extending the Medicaid provisions for their low income voters(the real idiots who vote for the GOP). Also, consider that the GOP House members who they are haranguing voted against the law (possibly 60 times) and that they just reelected him/her. What part of these past six years did these people miss?
These "suckers" elected a person who does not give a damn about them, who legislates against their interests, who complains when called on the carpet, finally, about their votes and is now pissed. Are the "suckers" waking up? I doubt it. For, if they were waking up, they would have not reelected the person just three months ago. So feel good that they are holding the representative to account for their votes against the ACA, but if you vote for a fool what does that make you? And after all 35% of them will still have the Obamacare!
As America continues its adjustment to the fool whom they elected as Pr*sident, the world laughs in derision and awe at the past two weeks of the Trump clown show. Just to recap here are a few low points for the USA:
1. Trump angered over low numbers at inauguration and especially the signs that said "FUCK TRUMP"
2. Trump initiates a failed covert operations mission that the Obama admin. had discarded as too risky and with a low probability of success. Resulting in the death of Navy Seals, loss of aircraft, and the deaths of a child and civilians. Trump had to show that he was just as bold and smart as Obama who captured and killed Bin Laden.
3. Trump, showing his lack of intelligence, boots the Joint Chiefs off the NSC's top level committee. However, he does add his racists adviser, Steve Bannon, and the new inept CIA Director, Pompeo.
4. Just to top off the last two weeks, Trump has threaten to send troops to Mexico, insulted the PM of Australia, and threaten Iran over conducting legal weapons' tests. Also, feigned outrage over Israel building more illegal settlements on land stolen from Palestinians.
5. The Brietbart adviser, Bannon, is predicting war with China over the South Sea which China probably ignored since these incompetents can't even conduct a successful raid in the fucking desert.
I could go on from here folks, but I think you get the picture that it is all downhill from here. With an administration staffed by white supremacist, religious bigots(all hypocrites), bank thieves, minority sellouts, and assorted white trash, the stupid American voter has done what no terrorist(outside of the Republican Party) could ever do: turn the USA into a banana republic controlled by an orange-haired fascist/criminal. Have a nice day.
