Time’s Up for Doddering Joe Biden

In spite of a series of gaffes and missteps in the last couple of weeks Joe Biden entered the first debate of the primary season as the clear frontrunner.

Biden felt emboldened by the heretical belief shared by most Democrats that the Democratic presidential hopefuls shouldn’t attack each other lest they weaken the eventual nominee. But politics ain’t beanbag and the natural order reasserted itself as the first debate saw most of the candidates takings swipes at the consensus leader.

But it wasn’t Bernie Sanders as expected who dealt the fatal blow, it was Kamala Harris who eviscerated the old doddering politician in a calm and strategic manner. “I do not believe you are a racist,” Harris told Biden, as she unveiled her attack, preemptively protecting herself from attacks by his supporters that she was accusing Obama’s veep of being a racist. She went on to say “it’s personal and it was actually hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States Senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country.”

Throughout Harris’ scolding Biden had the chastened look of a Catholic schoolboy being reprimanded by a nun brandishing a ruler. Biden’s response is inconsequential and irrelevant, Harris did to Biden what Lloyd Bentsen did to Dan Quayle.

The most humiliating experience in Biden’s political career could have been avoided if he had simply apologized and admitted he made a mistake immediately after invoking segregationists as an example of being able to get along with everyone. Refusing to apologize only works for one politician, namely Donald Trump, because his base will forgive him for anything, literally anything.

“Anyway, my time is up,” Biden said, as he finished his dramatic interaction with Harris. He obviously meant that his allotted time from NBC moderators was up, but the television audience was thinking: Your time is up, you doddering old fool! We need a young, preferably minority woman to face off against Trump.

When a Democrat running for president invokes segregationists as an example of getting along with political foes his time is up! When a Democratic politician uses states’ rights to defend his position on busing his time is up. When a presidential hopeful is 76-years-old and seemingly incapable of speaking coherently his time is up!

Donald Trump is Above the Law in Real Life and on Twitter

Dozens of women have accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct including ogling, harassment, and even rape. Trump has vehemently denied all these allegations, but who are you going to believe, women who have nothing to gain by coming forward or the cretin who was caught on tape boasting:

“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

Last Friday, E. Jean Carroll, a popular advice columnist, alleged that Trump (then a businessman) had raped her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in 1996. The story has almost disappeared from the news, eclipsed by the latest Trump outrages, including him jokingly reprimanding Putin not to interfere with the 2020 elections.

Trump has gotten away with sexually assaulting women since the 1970’s, he has not been accountable by the criminal justice system, or by Republican leaders. For all practical purposes, he’s above the law.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report chronicled multiple contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian government officials, and sets out ten incidents in which Trump possibly obstructed justice. Mueller failed to indict Trump of obstruction only because according to Justice Department regulations a sitting president can’t be indicted.

Trump, Attorney General Robert Barr and Congressional Republicans falsely claimed that the report exonerated Trump from charges of collusion and obstruction. Trump has learned nothing from his ordeal, he recently said that he would accept dirt on a political opponent from a representative of a foreign country, without notifying the FBI. For all practical purposes, he’s above the law.

Trump should be impeached for obstruction of justice and a hundred other reasons, but the Democratic-led House of Representatives refuses to impeach him for political considerations. Congress is acting as if he’s above the law.

Trump acts as if he doesn’t have to answer to anyone, he usurps Congressional power by issuing executive actions, and ridicules the other co-equal branch of government, the Judiciary. He lavishly praises tyrants, like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un the Dear Leader of North Korea, he envies their authoritarian systems of government that allows them to act without restraints.

In the real world Trump acts as if he’s a king, because for all practical purposes he is above the law.

Even in the virtual world Trump acts as if he’s above the law. On the social media platforms, especially Twitter, he defames, insults and ridicules his political opponents. Any regular person who acted like Trump on Twitter would have been permanently banned, but he can spread false conspiracy theories, viciously attack people, and outright lie without facing any consequences.

Finally, after millions of complaints that Trump violates the site’s rules prohibiting harassment, and hateful conduct Twitter plans to police Trump’s tweets, adding warning label for “abusive behavior.” Users will have to click on the warning to see the hidden tweet.

Too little, too late! Trump shouldn’t be above the law in real life or online, he should be treated like everyone else.

Donald Trump: Racist, Liar and Rapist

In 2016 Americans displayed remarkable wisdom and discernment in electing a pathological liar, brazen racist, clueless moron and a serial sexual predator as President of the United States and Leader of the Free World.

A rapist thinks that everyone is a potential rapist and that only fear of getting caught prevents the average man from defiling a woman. That’s why Trump didn’t have any reservations about branding an entire nationality, Mexicans, as rapists.

Advice columnist E. Jean Carroll accused Trump of raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room 23 years ago. Trump has vehemently denied the assault, explaining that “she’s not my type.” If someone accused me of rape my default defense wouldn’t be “she’s not my type.” I would vehemently deny the accusation, explaining that I would never violate a woman in such a violent and evil manner.

Rape isn’t a crime of passion, a rapist doesn’t search for the most beautiful or most scantily clad woman to assault. Rape is a crime of control, a rapist looks for the most vulnerable woman to abuse and humiliate.

“She’s not my type” is a phrase that until a rapist would utter, and it’s no surprise that defense/confession emanated from the sphincter-like mouth of the predator-in-chief.

About two dozen women have made credible accusations of sexual assault against Trump, Carroll is the latest and I’m sure she won’t be the last. I believe the women over the chronic liar, who was caught on tape bragging about grabbing women by their genitals.  

Surprise: Racist Donald Trump Against Reparations

President Donald Trump said in an interview on Monday that he thinks the concept of the federal government giving reparations to the descendants of slaves is ‘unusual’ and ‘interesting’ but he doesn’t ‘see it happening.’

USA TODAY

Reparations is a hot button issue on the campaign trail, most of the two dozen or so presidential Democratic candidates support the idea. It was only a matter of time before the stable genius piped in with his thoughts on the controversial idea.

I am “shocked, shocked, shocked” that Trump is against reparations! Who would have thunk that the most racist president in modern history could would express misgivings about the federal government giving reparations to the descendants of slaves. Who would have imagined that the chief executive who has slashed safety net programs that the disenfranchised poor, most of them minorities, rely on isn’t in favor of reparations? Who could have predicted that the man who has delayed replacing the genocidal racist Andrew Jackson with the abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill until he is out of office would look askance at the prospect of reparations? Who could have conceived that the real estate developer who called for the death penalty for the Central Park Five who were unjustly accused would be against justice for the descendants of slaves?

On June 19, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties held a hearing to discuss legislation introduced by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, calling for the creation of a commission to study the lasting effects of slavery’s legacy and what could be done to make amends.

We can only hope that Trump won’t be president if and when there’s a vote in Congress on giving reparations to the descendants of slaves.

Is Donald Trump Going to Replace Mike Pence With Nikki Haley?

“The headline of an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Monday says it all: Trump-Haley 2020.

The time has come to for President Donald Trump to replace Vice President Mike Pence on the 2020 ticket with former American Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, concludes Andrew Stein, a former president of the New York City Council and a Democratic supporter of the President. Here’s Stein’s key point:

‘It’s too late for Mr. Trump to revamp his political personality. But with the 2016 election in the past, Nikki Haley on the ticket could tamp down the antipathy for Mr. Trump that seems to afflict so many moderate and Republican-leaning women.’”

CNN

On November 7, 2018, Trump confirmed that Mike Pence would be his vice presidential running mate in 2020. But Trump is notoriously fickle and he may change his mind a dozen times before he begins to campaign in earnest after Labor Day.

The stable genius takes a perverse delight in breaking political conventions and his base wouldn’t be particularly upset if he dumped the obsequious Pence for the more independent Haley.

Trump selected the pious evangelical zealot, Mike Pence, to be his running mate to sure up his evangelical support. By appointed two conservative judges to the Supreme Court and nearly 200 conservative judges to federal appeals courts, it’s a safe bet that white evangelicals will vote for Trump come hell or high water. Trump can replace Pence with any conservative Republican without losing any votes.

This weekend on an interview on Meet the Press Chuck Todd asked Trump whether Mike Pence is 100% on your ticket in 2020, and Trump responded:

“Well, look, look — 100%, yes. He’s been a terrific vice president. He’s my friend.”

Trump may very well have been telling the truth, but if a miracle happens and Pence grows some balls any criticizes his boss for any of his myriad indiscretions or insane policy proposals he may very well be replaced by Haley or someone else.

The pertinent question is whether replacing Pence with Haley would guarantee Trump victory in 2020. It’s incredibly sexist to assert that replacing Pence with a female candidate, however qualified she may be, would motivate women to vote for Trump. Trump has already proven that he’s sexist beyond redemption and suburban female voters aren’t going to vote for Trump just because there’s a woman on the ticket.

In fact after four years of chaos, confusion and buffoonery nobody in his or her right mind will vote for Trump in 2020, regardless whom he chooses as his running mate.

Donald Trump Isn’t a Strategic Counter Puncher, He’s a Moron Who Punches Down

Donald Trump’s skin is famous for its orange hue and for its fragile and thin nature.

You’d think that the President of the United States and the Leader of the Free World wouldn’t notice when an obscure blogger, D-list celeb or a hack politician criticized him, but Trump goes ballistic over every perceived slight.

Trump has been labeled a strategic counter puncher but actually he’s a master at punching down, and when you’re the commander-in-chief you’re always punching down.

When the stable genius punches down it lowers his status and elevates his critics. Trump’s punching down strategy exposes him as a thin-skinned narcissist and provides his detractors with a platform to broadcast their views.

When the fucking moron responds to his critics he doesn’t do so by rebutting their arguments by appealing to reason and logic, but by engaging in ad hominem attacks. The perfect arena for Trump to eviscerate his enemies is the toxic cesspool, Twitter. This social media site was custom-made for the grammar-impaired vulgarian.

Trump isn’t going to be brought down by a vicious viral tweet, but at the ballot box. We would be well-advised to expend less energy verbally attacking Trump, and more energy mobilizing our forces to remove him from office by any means necessary.

I imagine the devil has reserved a special place in hell for Trump: A room with floor-to-ceiling windows where he is surrounded by snickering demons firing toxic tweets at him. No matter how fast Trump’s little fingers move he can never keep up with all the insults targeting him.

Trumpism Won’t be Defeated Until White Evangelicals are Discredited

Donald Trump received more than 80 percent support from evangelicals in 2016. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign may have been a publicity and narcissistic enterprise, but white evangelicals considered it a moral crusade to Make America Great Again by turning back the clock on women’s reproductive freedom, gay rights and racial equality.

White evangelicals are very pleased with the two far-right Supreme Court judges that were appointed by Trump, and not to mention the close to two  hundred judges he has appointed to federal appeals courts. They are ecstatic over the setbacks that Trump had dealt to the LGBTQ communities. They have ramped up their efforts to reelect their False Messiah, the moral reprobate is the perfect presidential candidate for evangelicals who are committed to their so-called family friendly causes.

The usual evangelical suspects have earmarked hundreds of millions in their crusade to reelect Trump. Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition is spending tens of millions on a voter mobilization effort that aims to register 1 million Christians in key battleground states. The Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion rights group, has a budget of $41 million this campaign cycle to reelect Trump and other anti-abortion candidates. The Family Research Council is also putting their money where their mouth is and pouring millions into the ungodly mission to reelect the short-fingered vulgarian.

It is manifestly clear that Trump could not have won without the support of white evangelicals, and it’s incumbent upon Democrats, Independents and Republicans who haven’t swallowed the Kool-Aide to redouble their efforts to defeat Trump and destroy the white evangelical movement.

Patriots can take these steps to delegitimize, demoralize and defeat white evangelicals:

Ridicule

There are no sacred cows, and where is it written that religion should be exempt from ridicule? Sanctimonious evangelicals with their penchant for hypocrisy, racism, and misogyny make such easy targets.

Demonstrate

Why in the holy name of God aren’t there any protests at megachurches? White evangelicals support the chaos of the Trump administration, so why not bring some chaos to their churches?

Tax-exempt status

If white evangelical churches are acting like political organizations why not yank their tax-exempt status? I think it’s an abomination that my tax money is being used to support churches that support homophobia, misogyny and xenophobia.

Join me in my mission from God to impeach Trump and to put the fear of God in white evangelicals!

Donald Trump Has an Excellent Chance of Being Reelected

Donald Trump is not a stable genius. He’s an unstable moron. He’s the living manifestation of Murphy’s Law. He has no master plan. He’s not playing three dimensional chess. He’s playing online checkers against a computer set at bonehead level of difficulty. He doesn’t have the intellectual capacity to think three moves ahead. He relies on his gut to navigate the game board. He didn’t win the presidency because of his oratorical brilliance or intelligent campaign strategy. His anti-establishment rhetoric and anti-immigrant message resonated with just enough white evangelicals, blue-collar workers and latent racists to seize the race from the elitist and universally despised Hillary Clinton. Lightening can strike twice. Donald Trump can win reelection. White evangelicals are even more enamored with their False Messiah than they were four years ago. Racists are more emboldened to support the white nationalist-in-chief. God does have a twisted sense of humor. We do get the political leaders that we deserve. A Democrat-controlled House of Representatives that is too cowardly to impeach Trump lacks the moral authority to persuade the electorate to throw the bum out of office. I have the demoralizing feeling that two years from now Democrats will still be debating whether or not to impeach Trump.

Donald Trump, Israel and White Evangelicals

The modern day state of Israel resembles apartheid era South Africa more than it does the Biblical state of Israel. It’s an article of faith for white evangelicals to support Israel religiously even though the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is politically corrupt and morally degenerate. He treats the peace process with disdain, and the Palestinians in the occupied territories with contempt.

White evangelicals are an integral part of Trump’s base, and he knows just how to play them. He pandered to these religious extremists by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol, and relocating the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The cherry on top of the cake was when he recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Netanyahu knows just how to play Trump, in gratitude to Trump for blessing Israel with all of these diplomatic gifts without having to make any concession to the Palestinians in return he named a settlement in the Golan Heights after him.

At a ceremony to inaugurate the new settlement, Netanyahu stood in front of a gold-trimmed sign that reads “Ramat Trump”, and said:

“We are proud to have the opportunity to establish a new community, and also to honor a big friend…Many years have passed since a new settlement was established in the Golan Heights. Today it is happening: We are making an important step toward the rise of Ramat Trump. It will proudly carry the name of a very great friend of the State of Israel, and I am also very proud to say a great friend of mine—President Donald Trump.”

The only part of the proposed settlement that has been built is the gold-trimmed sign, but that’s enough to stroke Trump’s ego. Trump must realize that in his own country very few public buildings, if any at all, will be named after him when he leaves office, so I’m sure he appreciates Netanyahu’s generous gesture.

Israel will never achieve the grandeur of its Biblical era until it has a Prime Minister who resembles King Solomon more than P. W. Botha, and America won’t be great again until it has a president who resembles Abraham Lincoln more than Richard Nixon.

Donald Trump Treats Michael Mulvaney Like an Impertinent Coffee Boy

Donald Trump is the worst boss in the realm of politics, in comparison Amy Klobuchar is as understanding and patient with her office staff as Sherriff Andy Taylor is with his bungling deputy, Barney Fife.

The stable genius expects devotion and loyalty from his staff, and in return he treats even high ranking officials like coffee boys who should be grateful to be in his presence.

The short-gingered vulgarian brusquely ordered White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to leave the Oval Office when he had the temerity to cough during a televised interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos.

“If you’re going to cough, please leave the room,” Trump blurted as he attempted to answer a question about House Democrats’ attempts to subpoena his tax records. The interview, taped last week in part in the Oval Office, was broadcast on Sunday night.

Trump was so upset by what he perceived as an unforgiveable act of disrespect that he continued to express his displeasure to Stephanopoulos.

“I don’t like that, you know, I don’t like that. If you’re going to cough, please leave the room. You just can’t, you just can’t cough. Boy, oh boy.”

God only knows what would have happened to the hapless Chief of Staff had he passed gas in the presence of his master! I’m guessing he would have ordered Mike Pence to remove his belt, take off Mulvany’s pants and give him the whipping of his life.

Even though interviewing Trump would be the highlight of my life as a blogger, I think I’d rather eat a salad with Klobuchar using combs instead of forks than ask Trump anything.
