Donald Trump Tweets General Pershing Pig’s Blood Myth

On Thursday a radical Islamic terrorist plowed a rental van into a popular pedestrian area teeming with tourists in Barcelona, killing 14 people and injuring at least 100 more.

Trump claimed that he didn`t immediately condemn the white supremacist domestic terrorists who murdered a woman in Charlottesville last weekend, because all the facts weren`t in yet.

Within an hour of the Barcelona attack, our national embarrassment of a president, Donald Trump posted this inflammatory tweet:

Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!

Trump was referring to the myth (fake news) that General John Pershing dipped bullets in pigs` blood before ordering his soldiers to execute Muslim insurgents following the Philippine-American War in order to deter the insurgency campaign.

This myth has been debunked by historians, Snopes.Com and military leaders outraged at this lie that tarnishes the reputation of Gen. Pershing.

But let`s say it`s true, Trump is condoning a grievous war crime. To summarily execute war prisoners is an outrage, and keep in mind that the Muslim soldiers fighting Pershing weren`t terrorists, they were freedom fighters battling a colonial power that had invaded their nation.

Trump`s intemperate and false tweet is going to inflame tensions throughout the Muslim world, putting American tourists, diplomats and military personnel in danger.

Once again Trump has demonstrated that he doesn`t have the wisdom and moral authority to be President of the United States. Impeach the bastard!

Woman Given Lifetime Bus Pass as 103rd birthday Gift

“A frequent bus rider in Florida was given a lifetime bus pass in celebration of her 103rd birthday.

Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority shared a photo of Barbara Rygiel receiving the special bus pass from CEO Brad Miller and Board Chair Darden Rice on Tuesday.

 

Rygiel takes the bus to church about four times a week and said the lifetime bus pass would help her avoid the fees that tend to pile up over time.”

UPI

At first glance this seems to be the kind of heartwarming story that we need in this time when so much tragic news dominates the airways and the Internet.

This sweet old lady takes the bus four times a week to church – that`s an outrage. Isn`t there a Good Samaritan in her congregation willing to provide her transportation to God`s house?

Most cities have subsidized bus service for seniors and the disabled community, certainly a city in Florida that`s infested with old folks should have such a free service!

A limousine service should step in and provide the old woman with free rides for life, what the hell she`s 103-freaking-years-old, she`s going to croak any day.

If I live to be a hundred I hope my city rewards me with free weed for life; I wouldn`t want to take the chance of dying in a damn bus.

White House Staff Should Resign En Masse in Protest of Donald Trump’s Racism

President Donald Trump`s press conference at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday afternoon quickly went off the rails after reporters questioned his response to the violence at the `Unite the Right` white-nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, which left one counterprotester dead and many others injured.

Trump doubled down on his assertion that the violence was caused by `bad actors` on both sides. He equated what he called `the alt-left”`with the `alt-right` at the rally and said that not all those participating were neo-Nazis or white supremacists.

Trump`s new chief of staff, John Kelly, who was brought in to help discipline the White House, looked especially displeased with how the press conference panned out.”

AOL

A press conference in which President Donald Trump was supposed to talk about his executive order on infrastructure quickly went off the rails when Trump took back his delayed denunciation of white nationalists and neo-Nazi groups and embraced them with open arms.

Trump wasn`t even scheduled to field any questions, he was supposed to deliver his remarks on infrastructure and then depart, leaving his staff who were standing behind him to answer any questions.

But when a reporter shouted a question about Charlottesville it ignited Trump`s impromptu 15 minute justification of White Nationalism. Trump didn`t use dog whistles to subtly indicate his support of racists, he used the megaphone of his bully pulpit to clearly show that he supports the alt-right movement.

Trump`s new chief of staff John Kelly was one of the White House personnel who were standing behind Trump, by their presence they were endorsing his blatant racism.

It was clear that Kelly was mortified by Trump`s remarks, it`s incumbent upon him to resign to register his disapproval and disgust at his boss`s racism.

I have no respect for Kelly or any other administration official who doesn`t resign in protest, if they remain on Trump`s staff they are complicit in his racism and bigotry.

This shouldn`t be a partisan issue, this is bigger than political parties, it`s about the soul of our nation. Republicans must publicly break with the president, and put our democracy above their careers and party.

Dude Builds Elaborate Maze For His Cats! Cat Lover or Lunatic?

“A proud cat owner celebrated International Cat Day by building his pets an elaborate maze of cardboard boxes.

Chris Poole converted 50 cardboard boxes into a massive maze for his famous feline friends Cole and Marmalade.

 

Poole individually constructed the boxes, before cutting various holes in the sides and lining them up in a winding pattern throughout the room.”

UPI

I love my cats, Tico and Ebony, and I cater to their every whim. I know they love playing with boxes, and whenever I buy anything that`s packaged in a box I save it for their entertainment and amusement.

But Chris Poole really takes the cake when it comes to pampering his kitties, he constructed an elaborate maze of cardboard boxes for his furry friends. The maze covered the entire living room floor. I may dedicate a corner of my living room for my pets` boxes and toys, but this dude really went overboard.

Whenever I buy toys or treats for my felines, and I wonder if I`m coddling them too much, I will play this video to remind myself that my furry friends haven`t completely taken over my life yet.

Racist Donald Trump is Considering Pardoning Racist Sheriff Joe Arpaio

“President Donald Trump told Fox News he is seriously considering issuing a pardon for former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted last month of criminal contempt for ignoring a judge`s order to stop detaining people because he merely suspected them of being undocumented immigrants.

 

Trump told the news outlet during a conversation in Bedminster, New Jersey, that the pardon could come quickly,

`I might do it right away, maybe early this week. I am seriously thinking about it,` Trump said, according to Fox News. He said Arpaio was a `great American patriot` who had `done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration.`”

Chicago Tribune

Donald Trump was condemned from all quarters for failing to respond forcefully to Saturday`s White Supremacist violence in Charlottesville, in which a woman was killed when a man crashed his car into a group of counter-protesters.

Finally on Monday, reading from a teleprompter, Trump called out the perpetrators of the violence by name: KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists.

When Trump speaks off-the-cuff his syntax may be mangled, but he speaks from his heart and he tells the truth as he perceives it, but when he reads prepared remarks that his aides have written for him, he looks like a child who`s forced to read a passage of Scripture at Sunday school.

If Trump really didn`t like White Supremacists he wouldn`t appoint them to prominent positions in his administration. If Trump really wanted to strike a blow against the alt-right fascists he would immediately fire Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka.

Trump is racist to the core and getting him to condemn racism and bigotry is like pulling teeth.

Trump`s confession that he`s seriously considering pardoning former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio is all the proof anyone with half a brain needs that he`s a freaking racist. Arpaio was convicted of criminal contempt for ignoring a judge`s order to stop detaining people because he merely suspected them of being undocumented immigrants.

Arpaio is one of the most loathed person is the Latino community, he and his deputies arrested thousands of Latinos for the crime of driving while brown.

Trump has declared war on gays and lesbians, immigrants, Latinos, Blacks, Muslims, and women and it`s incumbent upon all of us to fight this orange bastard until he`s removed from office.

Donald Trump Must be Relieved of the Powers of the Presidency Now!

“Donald Trump should be removed from office because he is mentally ill, a former Republican senator has said.

Gordon Humphrey, who represented New Hampshire between 1979 and 1990, said the US President is `sick of mind` and called for members of Congress to force him out.

In a letter sent to several New Hampshire Democrat senators and representatives, Mr Humphrey said Mr Trump is `dangerous`, `seriously sick` and could cause the deaths of millions of people.

Claiming the Commander-in-Chief is `sick of mind, impetuous, arrogant, belligerent and dangerous`, he added: `Donald Trump should be relieved of the powers of the presidency at the earliest date.`”

MSN News

After Germany was destroyed in the World War I and punished with severe economic sanctions, the Germans ignored Hitler`s madness, anti-Semitism and megalomania when he rose to power in the 30`s because he restored their national pride.

Trump`s supporters have turned a blind eye to his anti-Semitism, racism and megalomania because he has promised to make America Great Again.

History has harshly judged the Germans (rightfully so) for remaining silent when Hitler turned his murderous fury against unions, communists, gays and lesbians and the Jews.

History will indict Americans for tolerating the racism, bigotry and blind hatred of Donald Trump, Humphrey is spot on Trump must be relieved of the powers of the presidency at the earliest possible date.

At this point it`s not enough simply to condemn Trump`s racism and insanity, if you`re not doing everything possible to remove him from power, you are a part of the problem.

The fate of the world and the state of our democracy hangs in the balance, it`s incumbent on Congress to act now before Trump plunges the world into a nuclear winter and ignites a race war in America.

Donald Trump’s Wretched Statement on Charlottesville

A motley crew of racists (Neo-Nazis, KKK members, white supremacists and skinheads) numbering in the thousands descended on the sleepy college town of Charlottesville, Virginia and wreaked havoc.

The racist invaders came prepared for battle, they had helmets and shields and were swinging sticks and clubs and hurling rocks and bottles.

A small contingent of professional leftist counter-protesters eagerly joined the battle, matching the racists blow for blow. But the majority of counter-protesters were peacefully bearing witness against the invading army of bigots.

One person was killed and many others were injured when a vehicle deliberately sped into a group of counter-protesters.

At such a crucial juncture in history we look to our president to put things in perspective and on behalf of the public condemn racism and intolerance in no uncertain terms.

This is what the President of the United States said about the mayhem going in Charlottesville, the same person who never missed an opportunity to condemn former President Barack Obama for failing to name the evil of Islamic terrorism by its name:

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides. It`s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time.”

Trump didn`t condemn the sickening outrage in the strongest possible terms, his generic comments didn`t call evil by its name: White supremacist violence, and intolerance.

Our execrable president has a history of making racist comments and playing footsie with unabashed racists, and once again he has failed our democracy miserably.

Let me state in no uncertain terms, Donald Trump is a racist, and we must expunge this cancer by any means necessary.

Newest Gay Icon: 4-Year-Old Prince George

“A conservative British politician has lashed out at an LGBT news site for declaring their country`s future king a `gay icon.`

 

PinkNews used a photo of Prince George clutching his face while visiting a German helicopter compound with his father alongside an article headlined `People think Prince George looks fabulous in this new photo.`

`Prince George has become a gay icon overnight – at least, that`s what some people – sorry, his subjects – are saying on Twitter` the article began before quoting a series of social media posts about his supposedly feminine gesture.”

New York Daily News

Some conservatives reacted in shock to the gay publication`s characterization of 4-year-old Prince George as a gay icon, they claim that the young royal is being sexualized.

Bullocks! Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler, Cher, Madonna and Lady Gaga are all prominent gay icons, and there isn`t a gay man alive who fantasizes about these women as sexual objects.

To brand Prince George as a gay icon isn`t sexualizing him, it simply means that he embodies the gay aesthetic.

I have a finely tuned gaydar, in fact I have never been wrong when I guessed a celeb`s sexual orientation (male and female) sometimes decades before they came out of the closet.

The photograph of Prince George clutching his slightly tilted to the side face while wearing blue shorts is the gayest thing I have seen in my lifetime. Take is from someone who is infallible when it comes to guessing people`s sexual orientation, there is a 99.99 percent chance that little George will grow up to be gayer than Liberace.

The PinkNews article was tongue-in-cheek, conservative bitches need to get a clue.

In a Sane World Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un Would Settle Things in a Death Match

I always feared that if nuclear war broke out it was because a hyper-nationalist Russian Federation overreached and invaded one of the Baltic States, drawing NATO into the conflict which escalates into a nuclear conflagration.

Another likely scenario: The People`s Republic of China invades the island republic of Taiwan, and the United States is forced to defend Taiwan under the Sino-American Mutual Defense Treaty and soon there are mushroom clouds over Beijing and Washington.

And there`s always the possibility that Israel`s archenemy Iran will miscalculate and attack Israel with swarms of missiles and the Jewish nation will have no choice but to respond with nuclear bombs.

But I never dreamed that a nuclear holocaust would be unleashed because the President of the United States and the Dear Leader of North Korea
engaged in a pissing contest, exchanging apocalyptic broadsides culminating in a nuclear winter.

American presidents from George H.W. Bush to Barack Obama didn`t overreact when Kim Jung-un`s grandfather and father hurled bombastic threats, they were confident as leader of the free world and didn`t see a need to match the inflammatory rhetoric of a 3rd world tinpot dictator.

It`s too bad a naked Donald Trump and Kim Jung-un can`t settle their differences in a death cage death match, and not endanger the lives of millions of people.

Kim Jong-un Sashays Over Donald Trump’s Red Line! Now What?

Rule Number 1 for surviving in cold and cruel world: Never (ever) make a threat that you aren`t able and willing to carry out.

If I yell at my next-door neighbor “If you blast your redneck music again tonight when I`m trying to sleep I`m going to knock the crap out of you,” and then he plays “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight” at full volume on an endless loop that same night, and I`m too afraid to confront him, my fate has been sealed, I will never again enjoy a good night`s sleep.

 

Which brings us to the Blowhard-in-Chief Donald Trump, he warned Pyongyang it would face “power, the likes of which this world has never seen before” if the renegade state continued to threaten the United States.

Keep in mind that everybody knows how Kim Jong-un rolls, almost every day for the last six years he has issued an apocalyptic warning directed at America.

Sure enough within an hour after Trump delivered his fire and brimstone warning the pudgy dictator threatened to launch missiles at Guam. Lil` Kim is basically saying: Now What?

In 2013 President Barack Obama warned that if Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad used chemical weapons against his own people it would trigger an American military response. But when the inevitable happened, Obama failed to keep his promise, and Trump has never let him forget it.

There is no quicker way for an American president to lose favor with the American public and credibility with the international community than by drawing a line in the sand, and then failing to act.

Kim Jong-un sashayed over Trump`s red line, and the only “fire and fury” is emanating from the Orange Buffoon`s arse as he farts away in frustration.

Nobody will believe Trump`s future warnings, he has succeeded in making the likelihood that the Korean crisis will go nuclear so much higher.
