This is a First in my Lifetime

donald-trump-cartoon
I’m not old, but I’m not young either. When I was born, Richard Nixon was the president and the Vietnam War was still going. Since I was a teenager I’ve watched politics closely, and I’ve never heard a candidate for president say anything as absurd as this.

“Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

That’s the first sentence in a press release from Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump published on December 7, 2015. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was on December 7, 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt said it was “a date which will live in infamy.” Trump decided it was also a day to announce that as president, he would implement a bureaucracy to screen everyone entering the United States to prevent any Muslim from entering.

While some are expressing shock that a major candidate of one of the two major political parties would run on a platform of religious tests, this is just a continuation of Trump’s thought process. It was just a couple of weeks ago when Trump said he would create a database as Muslims. The next obvious step after creating a database of Muslims would be to use that database to deny people entry into the country and to harass Muslims currently here – citizen or otherwise.

And it’s worth pointing out that when Trump spoke about his database of Muslims policy position, many serious journalists attacked the reporters for asking the question rather than express shock at Trump’s answers.

Here’s Trump’s complete statement.

DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT ON PREVENTING MUSLIM IMMIGRATION

(New York, NY) December 7th, 2015, — Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on. According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from the Center for Security Policy released data showing “25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad” and 51% of those polled, “agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah.” Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won’t convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women.

Mr. Trump stated, “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again.” – Donald J. Trump

Will Media Give Trump Another Pass?

donald-trump-cartoon
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has gone from creating a database of muslims to now calling for the total ban of muslims – even american muslims.

The mainstream media, even serious reporters like Dave Weigel scoffed when reporters reported about Trump’s policy position that the federal government needs to maintain a database of muslims. To the Weigel’s of the press corp, Trump’s repeated and consistent statements about tracking all muslims wasn’t a story. The critique was that a reporter asked Trump a pointed question and he answered it – gotcha journalism.

But now Trump is calling for a complete ban on muslims – even US citizens who practice Islam. We’ll see how the press handles this policy position from the leading GOP candidate. The mainstream media turned a blind eye to Trump’s position that all 11 million immigrants in this country should be deported and that he would do so as president – it was met with a shrug.

Well here’s what Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said in a fundraising email on Monday.

I want to say a few things about Donald Trump and specifically about his comments tonight that we should ban all Muslims from coming to the United States, even American Muslims returning home from overseas.

It’s fun for the political media to treat Donald Trump like he’s the lead character in a soap opera or the star player on a baseball team. But the truth is his language is dangerous, especially as it empowers his supporters to act out against Muslims, Latinos, and African-Americans.

Poll after poll shows that I am the candidate best suited to take on Donald Trump and every other Republican running for president.

Help me show the best of America — not the worst that Trump exemplifies. Help us win.

Donate $3 to our campaign now to condemn Donald Trump’s hate and racism.

The United States is a great nation when we stand together, but we are weak when we allow racism and xenophobia to divide us. So let’s send a message that we stand together.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

Police Officer Who Killed Tamir Rice is Lying

Screen Shot 2015-12-01 at 8.55.09 PM
The statement by the police officer who killed Tamir Rice was released today and it doesn’t pass the smell test.

According to officer Timothy Loehmann he repeatedly warned the 12-year-old Rice to raise his hands. Loehmann claimed he “yelled continuously ‘show me your hands’ as loud as I could.”

Yet the video evidence shows the Loehmann executed Rice within two seconds of arriving on the scene. It takes two seconds to say “show me your hands” once, much less repeatedly shouting it.

This police officer fucked up and needs to go to prison for murdering this one boy who had a pellet gun.

Colorado GOP Rep. JoAnn Windholz Says Planned Parenthood is the Real “Culprit”

Three people were brutally murdered and nine injured at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado on November 27.

In a statement, Republican state representative JoAnn Windholz said, “Violence is never the answer, but we must start pointing out who is the real culprit. The true instigator of this violence and all violence at any Planned Parenthood facility is Planned Parenthood themselves. Violence begets violence. So Planned Parenthood: YOU STOP THE VIOLENCE INSIDE YOUR WALLS.”

Shocking. It is not the violent anti-abortion terrorists who are to blame for this disgusting act of murder, but Planned Parenthood.

Here are the three victims who were murdered in cold blood.

Jennifer Markovsky, 36, the mother of two young children was killed.

Ke’Arre Stewart, 29, survived serving in the Army in Iraq and the father of two children.

Police Office Swasey, 44, the father of two was killed responding to the active shooting at Planned Parenthood.
Screen Shot 2015-12-01 at 4.37.50 PM

Anyone who thinks that these people deserved what they got, that this heinous act is somehow Planned Parenthood’s fault, or that it’s justifiable, should never hold elected office in any capacity.

Come on people, this is disgusting. JoAnn needs to step down immediately and seek the services of a psychiatrist because her view of the world is severely skewed.

How We Got to This Point

The United States has been heading toward a brick wall politically for at least 50 years. The great unravelling of conservatism began in the 1960s – the Civil Rights movement and Vietnam radically altered this country. Today, people like Ted Cruz and Donald Trump and Rand Paul and Chris Christie and Mike Huckabee are just more examples of how totally fucked the Republican party is today. And while it’s certainly entertaining to watch the GOP completely collapse under the weight of its own sheer ignorance and lack of any cogent political agenda, the ramifications of one of the parties in our two-party system grinding itself into a fine dust could be felt deep and wide.

Here’s how we got where we are today. The Republican party’s dysfunction can be traced back to the 1960s when the two parties essentially flipped ideologically. Before the Civil Rights movement, it was the GOP who got the black vote in large part because President Lincoln was a Republican and the Republicans freed the slaves. The Democrats, particularly down south were raging racists and members of the KKK.

In 1964, the racist and segregationist Democrats like Strom Thurmond were welcomed by the Republican party and the party became the place where ignorant bigots like Thurmond could felt at home. Not long after that, President Nixon crafted the so-called “southern strategy” to win national elections without having to worry about winning northern states – just sweep the south. To do that, Nixon and nearly every national Republican candidate has used some version of racism to win the south. George W. Bush did it in 2000 when he was running against John McCain. Bush did a push poll in South Carolina by calling Republican voters and asking if they would have a problem with John McCain if he had an illegitimate black child. The poll was designed by Dr. Evil (a.k.a. Karl Rove). The question to South Caroline voters went like this.

“Would you be more or less likely to vote for John McCain if you knew he had fathered an illegitimate black child?”

McCain doesn’t have an illegitimate child and the pollster isn’t saying that he has a child from outside his marriage, but if McCain did have such a child, and the child was black, would you still vote for him?

It’s classic push-polling, I think Karl Rove calls it rat fucking and it worked. George W. Bush, after decades of the GOP sliding into the drainage ditch became president in 2001. Even today it shocks me that he “won” in 2000 and reelection in 2004.

From Nixon to Ford to Reagan to George HW Bush, the southern strategy of dividing people over race was instrumental in locking up the south.

And if you recall the W era, it was one of war, destruction and massive death.

In 2015, we are witnessing the downside for our country and the Republican party as we watch clowns like Donald Trump leading the Republican party. Sarah Palin was bad enough, and she almost made it to the White House, now we have Trump and he’s making a viable play for the presidency. After decades of pandering to the party’s lowest common denominator, the Republican party has been taken over by idiots who think Donald Trump or Ted Cruz is capable of leading the world’s largest economy and most powerful military. It’s not good.

Secret Service Investigating Planned Parenthood Shooter Threats Directed at Obama

ABC News is reporting that the Secret Service is investigating threats made the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting suspect.

According to ABC News, the alleged shooter made threats directed at President Obama and the Secret Service is concerned enough to investigate the threats – despite that the Planned Parenthood gunman is in jail.

More than 1,000 Mass Shootings Since Sandy Hook

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 1.40.55 PM
People capable of abstract thought felt sick when 20 little elementary school children were gunned down in their school three years ago this December. Many of us demanded that our government do something to make sure a tragedy like Sandy Hook never happens again. What we got was nothing. Congress chose to do nothing to reduce the number of mass shootings, and in fact, Senator Ted Cruz is running for president as someone who stopped the parents of Sandy Hook victims from getting any satisfaction from Congress.

In the 3 years since the Sandy Hook massacre, there have been more than 1,000 mass shootings in the United States. The result of the 1,029 mass shootings cataloged by Vox has left 1,300 people dead and nearly 3,700 injured. That’s nearly one mass shooting every day.

A mass shooting is when four or more people are shot.

List of Democrats Who Voted For Anti-Refugee Bill in the US House

November 19, 2015 was a sad day in America. Nearly 50 Democrats chose cowardice over leadership in the US House of Representatives by voting in favor of HR 4038 “American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act.” The bill does essentially nothing and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said the bill will never get through the Senate. But even if it did get through the Senate, the bill doesn’t do anything to the process of screening refugees from Syria or Iraq or anywhere else.

The Department of Homeland Security refugee screening process is arduous and can take as long as two years to complete. Why these 47 Democrats decided it made sense to come out in favor of a bill designed to prove one’s capacity for bigotry is not yet known.

The reason Republicans voted for it is obvious. Being a bigot for many Republicans is an asset.

Here’s the list of 47 Democrats who failed the leadership test today. The full roll call vote can be found here. Two Republicans voted against this bill.

(c) Inspector General Review Of Certifications.—The Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security shall conduct a risk-based review of all certifications made under subsection (b) each year and shall provide an annual report detailing the findings to the appropriate Congressional Committees.

 

(d) Monthly Report.—The Secretary of Homeland Security shall submit to the appropriate Congressional Committees a monthly report on the total number of applications for admission with regard to which a certification under subsection (b) was made and the number of covered aliens with regard to whom such a certification was not made for the month preceding the date of the report. The report shall include, for each covered alien with regard to whom a certification was not made, the concurrence or nonconcurrence of each person whose concurrence was required by subsection (b).
