2016 GOP Convention: 4 Days of Trump Infomercials

By RF Schatten

Expected this year's RNC gathering of clowns to be beyond expectation?...well, it sure was!...way beyond my own, and everyone else expectations. How far could a once proud & dignified Conservative Political Party, lower the standards of that 'political bar'?

Today's GOP version outdid themselves, right into the pits of hell, into the depths of Rudeness, Impoliteness, and Indecorum. Historically Rude, Historically Impolite, and the most Indecorous organized political event ever, in a civilized American Society!...decorum? This is a group of Sociopaths, Racists, Bigots of all Kinds...and Extremely Lily White!...all up for a good old fashioned Lynching! A convention, run by the foolish, for the inane!...BTW, has anyone seen the Trumpster's "very own" African American at the Quicken Loans Arena?

This year's...the 2016 Clown Show -aka- RNC National Convention...turned into an all out, Freak Show! A little bit for everybody! from a Rock Star's entrance to the Coronation of Heir Führer, Donald Drumpf! All Trump needed was the Tiara and the Sash!...it would've gone great with his spray tan and comb-over! It was a Convention, not so much about the Republican Party, but a 4 day Infomercial on the greatness, the goodness, the all-knowing, all-seeing...the greatest mind ever to exist on this earth, custom made by God himself!...and you know that, cause The Donald said so! Doesn't matter how many times this pathological liar is caught red handed...who cares? ha! ha!...it's just The Donald!

Lie over and over, till people forget where and how the Lie originated...and people will tend to believe it, as the Truth!...it's one of the principle techniques of Propaganda, "The Big Lie". The IQ's of his true loyal following are mesmerized by this Sociopath's horseshit. Who cares what he does? it's Donald, he knows more than we do!!
Enter, stage Right: Overheard 2 ladies at Walmart; "I'm voting for Trump cause he's a tremendously gifted and successful businessman. Hey! he said so, honey! it got to be true"?!?!..."and he'll know how to build our terrible economy back up"! Are we seriously at the dawn of "Idiocracy"??

There were enough Fireworks for the excitement of the crowd...but not necessarily Kate Smith's God Bless America and the Red, White, & Blue type!...it started with "Never Trump" opposition delegates in a Rules Committee rebellion demanding a Roll Call. When turned down by the RNC, amidst the boos and Bronx cheers the Iowa and Colorado Delegations walked off the Floor...with the Colorado Delegation walking out at exactly 4:20pm!...I kid you not!
Then you had Ted Cruz on Stage and on Prime Time, presumably to give an open Endorsement of Le Grande Orange...instead, he sort of created his own rendition of "Et Tu Brute"! His message to Republicans? Vote your conscience! Why? “I am not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and attacks my father.”...like him or hate him, at least Ted Cruz has the 'cojones' to stand up to Trump!...something that Chris Christie lost long ago. It's hard for the 410lbs Christie to keep bending down for The Donald...but, for a good position in his Administration he'll continue to bend down as much and as low, as Donald wants.

The Speakers? From Melania Trump, with her tough understanding the English Language, giving an extremely eloquent oratory...very eloquently plagiarized from Michelle Obama's 2008 Convention Speech...to Donald Jr. plagiarizing a sentence or two the following Night. Oh! got permission to use it from the original author?  Never crediting the man, and allowing people to believe this young man wrote them, is still plagiarizing and defrauding the public!

From the President of the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, who spoke on-stage and for the 1st time in its history are Endorsing a Candidate...Hillary Rodham Clinton, of all people! From Scott "Chachi" Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr....Trump's A list of Hollywood Superstars, who spoke about the need for a Megalomaniac Sociopath to become Leader of the Free World, to Christie becoming a one man Judge, Jury, and Executioner...prosecuting Hillary! And Rudy Giuliani is not far behind...appearing to have an out of body experience, and spewing vengeful hatred in every sentence of his speech directed at the Clintons, and anybody else who opposed his "Drag Smooching" buddy...Dems or GOP. Or is it all, just the deliberate baiting of an audience to the chants reserved for lynch mobs?!?!

A lot of Hillary Clinton baiting! over and over, just enough for the Public to hear and keep the attention away from 4 Days of absolutely no constructive and realistic Platform or Policies, while going into this Fall's Elections. It's going to be Attack Hillary! Attack Hillary!...and stonewall your way out of any questions dealing with specific Policies or Party Platforms. He doesn't need Policies to run a Country...at least that's what he says!
But make no mistake, this was not your conventional Republican Convention, but a spotlight for a Self-adulating and narcissistic 69-year-old fart, and a dysfunctional rich Stepford family who speak about the 'rough times' having to grow up with money...oh! poor babies!...while becoming the carbon copy of their old man! Plagiarizing or Lie their way through life...like The Donald! Ivanka even used this 4 Day Infomercial and her speech...to plug her clothing line!...how Trump!

The Trump/Pence ticket became the most Right Wing White Supremacist ticket in modern American History...in any Political Party!...with the Public backing of the KKK and the American Neo-Nazis. And it's become the biggest migraine the Republican Party has ever had to face since Booth shot Lincoln! Especially now, with Trump's talks on dumping NATO in favor of Russia and Vlad...along with his record-breaking 1 hour and 15-minute rambling diatribe of Fear and Hate. Almost unanimously criticized as the Worst Acceptance Speech ever given by anyone in US History!
The Bush Family and scores of Republican elected officials and dignitaries skipped the fiasco...Ohio Governor John Kasich skipped the farce of Cleveland and went (politically) "fishing". It's not been the Best of Times for Republicans or FoxNews this week...oh! PS: So long Roger!

You know it's gotten pretty bad and sad for the Grand Old Party, when you start missing the Words and Wisdom of George Dubya!...and of Eastwood's Empty Chair!

3 Reasons Why Donald Trump Just Gave The Worst Acceptance Speech In History

Jul 17, 2016

Trump & Pence: Escalating Fear, Hate, and Sexism

 By RF Schatten

“I long for the day that Roe v. Wade is sent to the ash heap of history when we move past the broken hearts and the broken lives of the past 38 years.” ~~ Mike Pence

If you have a choice of picking the most batshit obsessed RightWing Candidate in modern Political History...Mike Pence is your man!
His credentials? RightWing Nut Jobs will love him! Christian Fundamentalists will adore him!
1) Strict Anti-Abortion (even if the Mother's Life is at risk}
2) Anti-LGBT
3) Anti-Birthright Citizenship
4) Pro-Tobacco, Anti-Regulations via Lobby & Industry
5) Opposes Auto Industry Bail-Outs
6) Supports an all out Military return to Baghdad
7) Against Patient Protection Act
8) Anti-Medicare Part D (Medicare Prescription Drugs)
9) Anti-Obamacare
10) Anti-Immigration / Anti-Dream Act
11) Anti-Medicare, Welfare, and Social Security entitlements
12) TAX Cuts for the 1% and trickle the rest of the cost to the American Worker
13) Anti-Public Education favoring the Koch Brothers' own Education plan
14) Anti-Labor Unions
15) Climate Denier & Anti-EPA . Anti-Clean Air & Pro-Pollution

Do we need to go through each and every one of these? Or let's just hit the highlight reel! Pence calls himself 'Rush Limbaugh on Decaf' for being not as outspoken as Rush...but naturally, believes in Rush's most careful thoughts and ideas....'that', tells you something about this latest GOPClown. A clown who would look you straight into your eyes and say; "Smoking Doesn't Kill"!! Naturally, the Tobacco Industry and their lobby, agree wholeheartedly with Mike.
He's in favor of abolishing the Public School System and in favor of replacing it with the Koch's master plan on educating Americans. He's Anti-Immigration, Against the Dream Act like a good Republican, he's anti-labor unions and pro-management.
And Health Care? He wants to repeal Obamacare, privatize Medicare and privatize Social Security, just like that so-called the GOP-inspired fabulous Private Prison System...and for those less fortunate? eliminate the Welfare System and let them it cake! Just like his thoughts about the LGBT Community! or has everyone forgot why Boycott Indiana matters and his Religious Freedom horseshit is just that!?!?
And, as a Sexist? He's The Trumpster's perfect partner in crime! Defunding Planned Parenthood and believing the "State" has a moral obligation to legally have control of a Woman's own  body!...the perfect horrific schmuck to help Trump with his fear, hatred, and dominance over Women.

Then comes Foreign Policies...and the differences between Trump and Pence. Why does Trump want to declare war, yet doesn't want to go into the Middle East?...notably back to Iraq, while Pence wanted to jump back into Baghdad yesterday? Sometimes, you Vote for something that you might regret later on...not just Hillary, but so many have...even before the Middle East, during Vietnam, during certain actions in Korea, so many more times. It's natural to regret and know you made a mistake...but, Mike Pence never had a regret going back into Iraq...and it's his greatest Wet Dream, to return!

Trump’s “America First” rhetoric...Translated to the lower 1% of the Intelligence Quotient scale, his supporters, as old fashioned "Red, White, and Blue Patriotism", We're #1! USA! USA! America has to be #1 no matter what!...#1 in the US of A, and #1 away all around the world! Ahhyup! back to the days of using your imperialistic power to move around the world! that Ugly American Syndrome and Gunboat Diplomacy, are revisited!
Translated to the upper 1% of our Society, as "American Exceptionalism". If we're not hated around the world, what can the Republicans say or do?!?! Trump is your perfect Stooge to have around with his tiny little thumb just a silly millimeter away from the Red Button!

Trump & Pence...the real Politico of this comedy act...want a full "Congressional Declaration of War" against ISIS! Brain-fart #1...attack ISIS where? Since ISIS is an organization, not a Country, are we going to seek permission, go in, and proceed to destroy a Nation in search of ISIS? or if they say no...like the Mexicans not paying for a wall, built on the opposite side of their border...are we just going to intervene anyhow? American Exceptionalism and Gunboat Diplomacy in today's modern world is not only, just not acceptable, not one country is going to put up with that American crock of caca anymore!...the world, even with all its problems, are more advanced and sophisticated in their own civilizations since those last vestiges of the American Fruit Company, and will not allow such an American Excursion to occur, period. 

Now, we have a Republican Party in Chaos...defending the most Far Right Conservative Platform ever, from building a physical wall around the country and isolating ourselves from the world, to keeping 1.9 Billion people from entering America...to unconstitutional and indecent Gay Conversions, and to a Total Thermonuclear War, just to find an organization?...regardless how many die in the process, in that country. Remember, to Trump & Pence...it's about making America Great, Again....but after they first destroy it!
Want to Vote for Trump/Pence? Remember, a brain fart away, they're just a silly millimeter from that Red Button!

Top GOP Operative: Mike Pence Once Thought Trump Was 'Unacceptable.' Now He's The VP Pick.

Roger Ailes: The Worst of Times for the GOP & Fox

 By RF Schatten

"The First and only Principle of Sexual Ethics: the Accuser is always in the wrong" ~~ Theodor Adorno

Anita Hill learned 'that' principle very well with her accusations of a not so honorable Justice Clarence Thomas...how could you accuse such an "Honorable" person?
Unless you're a bonafide "Saint" or a truly saintly human being...no one is that 'Honorable' in their own personal lives!...sometimes you have to work that gray area of the Law, just to survive in today's Capitalist "System". You do what you have to do to feed your family, but you're still considered sort of an honorable person! But, when you use the power, the influence, and particularly the advantages of your "Position" in today's System, for your personal gains?...there's absolutely nothing Honorable for you to claim.

Speaking of the Honorable and Dishonorable; Roger Eugene Ailes, Chairman, and CEO of Fox News, recently got slapped with a stinging Sexual Harassment Lawsuit by former Fox & Friends Co-host Gretchen Carlson! Lawsuit charge? "Severe and Pervasive” Sexual Harassment at Work.
Ahhyup! Roger the Dodger is a full blown sexist!...and why does Donald Trump and Roger Aisles don't see eye to eye? They're too much the same, too much alike...two creepy degenerate hypocrites and egocentric sexists! They could never trust each other!

Is Roger an honorable person? At least, he doesn't lie about his Politics!...nobody questions Roger Ailes' Republican Conservatism and FOXNews being the GOP's Mouthpiece, and especially a very well polished Propaganda Machine for the Republican Party...'that', along with NewsCorp's continued history of being among the more notable Money Donors to the GOP!!

Ahh! those Republican "Family Values"!...for years, along with the Economy has been the Cornerstone of the Grand Old Party! Now, whatever is left, is being flushed right down the Republicans' Port-A-Potty. More than just a few people, believe Roger Aisles 'owns' today's GOP and controls their agenda...and now? Forget the GOP's Sinking Ship...as everyone says; it's become a Dumpster Fire! And it appears, that Ailes...like Trump...is dousing more fuel into that Dumpster!

Sexual Harassment at the workplace is about Power, and the power over subordinates ...exploiting those most vulnerable...those who financially cannot afford to resign!
Roger believes as "The Boss", he has all the right to "ogle" Gretchen's derriere whenever it suits his fancy. Gretchen declined, not just because she's got much higher morals and values than Roger...but probably figured out getting in the sack with that 76-year-old repulsive fat bastard is just not worth it!?!?

Legs, Legs, and more Legs...that's what an Ailes production is all about!...Stepford-like Females, preferably blonde, all with that same white shiny smile...and Legs! Legs! Legs! And if he can get a good sneak peek at their derrieres? the more the better for this salivating, horny old Codger!
Is he Guilty or Innocent? Past history and indications about females suggest a lecherous old man who, if he doesn't get what he wants, specifically hopping into the sack with whoever the Boss chooses, you either get demoted, you get a decrease in Pay, receive less Airtime, or you find a reason to leave...in Carlson's case she resigned when her contract was not renewed...after 11 years of continued sexist remarks and innuendos, both "On the Air" and backstage by her two colleagues, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade (who seriously, is very open about it and proudly calls himself a Sexist)! The last time was the final straw for this lady.

The future of FoxNews? the 2nd Generation of Murdochs, Lackland & James, are taking an active participation with the company and are having their own internal investigation on the whole issue. Rumors about Aisle's future? and the changing Mores at FoxNews? they are all real!...their values? becoming a little more Politically Correct...and try to appeal to a broader spectrum of audiences! just like the Republicans are going to have to do after these elections are over...if, a Republican Party still even exists after this November!

It's Bad News for Fox! and more Bad News for the GOP! FoxNews is in the most precarious position ever!!...simultaneously defending both, the GOP and Trump's sexist talking points plus his less talked about rape history, while the man who represents Conservative America's Holy News Bible ...the CEO of FoxNews, himself! their Boss! is publicly facing a Sexual Harassment Lawsuit, in a year where the fateful GOP nominee is an egomaniacal gynephobe and sexist supreme, and the challenger happens to be the strongest Pro-Women Rights candidate...from either Party!...ever in US History!!

 For Fox News' Ailes, a huge challenge

The GOP's Inconvenient Truth on Fascism

 By RF Schatten

"The United States is 'a kindler and gentler
 nation' because of former President George H.W. Bush" ~~ President Barack Obama

3 Years ago this month at a White House luncheon, President Barack Obama honored former President George HW Bush and his non-profit "Points of Light Foundation", founded in 1990 to promote Volunteerism, and his contributions to the field of Community Service...and also award the 5,000th "Daily Point of Light Award".

We're not a kindler and gentler Nation anymore! And today's GOP certainly is not HW's Republican Party anymore either!...let's just say; it's just not his cup of 'Tea'.

A Republican Party that supports Fascism more and more as the days go by. A Political Party that supports Anti-Semitism, the exportation of millions of Latinos, the exclusion of an entire Religion...1.9 Billion inhabitants...and the constant neighborhood spy watch for those Muslim residing in this Country.  That was even suggested by Heir Drumpf himself! "Citizen's will be obligated to report all the activities of their neighbors...and it will be considered a serious crime if they don't follow the law"! For those who think we're already in Gestapo type Nation? Watch what the true Gestapo, truly is!!

All a mistake about the Star of David? or just an inconvenient truth when Heir Drumpf royally screwed up?? Was it meant to be a "Sheriff Badge"? Maybe it was Sheriff Joe's Badge?...Arpaio is both a Sheriff and Fascist pig, so it could've been just a big misunderstanding?

Remember, The Donald 'Loves' Jews! Just like he Loves Mexicans! and how he Loves Blacks! how he Loves Muslims! how he Loves Labor Unions! and especially!...an egocentric abusive 3x married philanderer, a spray-tanned "Prince Pretty" who believes he's God's gift to the female species. You know his line...I'm a woman's man! I Love Women!!

Donald Trump will never admit his failures, always passing the buck on others...blame the other guy! cause it can't be his fault?...he's perfect! His horseshit perception of a Jewish Religious Symbol being confused for a yee pee kai yay Sheriff Badge is exactly that...horseshit! Yet, when taking credit for something, he'll increase the figures and the value of importance of whatever it is, so he can brag...or more likely, bullshit...about his successes! I'm the smartest businessman in the world!...and with the greatest memory in the universe!

So, Donald!...with all your explanations about the characteristics of a Sheriff's Badge and a Star of David, the facts you described were just a coincidence, and your sudden admiration and respect of the Jewish faith...you're so smart! so, how come no one believes you?!?!?
The fact that Trump has picked up over 75 memes that he's used on his opponents...including some really awful stuff on Jeb Bush...over 75 memes! from the "Daily Stormer", an American Neo-Nazi and White Supremacist News and Opinions website. Their Publisher, Andrew Anglin...who used to own "Total Fascism" before it was shut down...was the 1st well known White Supremacist to publicly Endorse Donald Trump with the headline:  "Heil Donald Trump...The Ultimate Savior"!

75 memes exchanged from one piece of human excrement to another...just 75 memes? With a new found ally...mutually thoughtful correspondence would naturally, also follow. And Drumpf was totally clueless on the so-called perception and mistaken identity of a Star? Sure, Don!
When the American Neo-Nazis are openly and publicly making Trump Robocalls, and organized doing door to door politicking...and the Ku Klux Klan joining in, too? Drumpf has his cheap hardcore free labor covered, and why he says he doesn't need the GOP's money! Wrong perceptions and mistaken identity, my ass!

This 2016 Election can't be any more Black and White! America is in the midst of turbulent Cultural Racism...not just Races against Races, but Religions against Religions, and Ideologies against Ideologies. And people are truly taking ultra-radical directions...whether towards the Right or towards the Left.

Using a little common sense, and seeing we're passing the point of no return to where Donald Trump's Republican Party is now headed...is not a hard choice at all who to vote for. You can see those gentler and quieter Republican Days of Reagan and HW are all but a distant memory of what was once the Grand Old Party. And why the Bush Family, other notable Dignitaries, and a slew of Republican Women are all staying far away from Cleveland, OH! and Voting Democratic...even John Kasich, the Governor of Ohio left a good political message: "Gone Fishing"!

Ahhyup! When Fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in a Flag and carrying a Cross, but also Heir Drumpf's Bible...in this case, a Trump University Bible, from Trump Catalogs cause "I Love Everyone!...and now, for only $19.95!

Trump Claims Star Of David Picture Isn't Anti-Semitic

Jul 2, 2016

Anti-Semitism: Trump's or GOP's Values?

 By RF Schatten

"I think all Nazis didn't see themselves as bad people. I've never met a Racist yet who thought he was a Racist....or an anti-Semite who thought they were anti-Semitic" ~~~ Norman Jewison

An apology to the Jewish community from The Donald? don't expect one unless he is forced...like forced to pick a side on the Abortion Issue! The one thing Donald Trump hates to do the most in his life is taking Public Stances on things that might fire right back on his spray-tanned puss!

Will a degenerate hypocrite have any compassion, empathy, and/or understanding with what the meaning of the "Star of David" on the left side of a suit, symbolizes to a Jewish man or women? Being the degenerate that he obviously is, he 'will' apologize to the Jewish Community...if he's seriously confronted and challenged by the Party...and in a personal, very risky position if he doesn't!

A degenerate is a degenerate...and this degenerate is not really ever going to change his stripes. With the Jews? he may appear "politically" remorseful, but his only remorse is being there and appearing remorseful! Apologizing for being truly anti-Semitic? Nope! Apologizing that he didn't know the meaning of his Photoshopped meme? Nope!...or apologizing because he's the "Most Honorable Person" in the world, which he claims to be to everyone just before he screws them, while sadly telling them with tears running down his sprayed on make-up, how sorry he "really" is? Nope! How about just becoming a man!...that "Honorable Person" he BS's the world he is, and just says; "Sorry, I made a bad mistake"? that's all.

Donald Trump is not an apologetic human being and will never be. Using his pathological lies over and over is not going to convince too many new people, he's your next Fuhrer!...only his batshit following cares about him. To them, if he's more Fascist and Racist? the more the better! White Supremacy for America!...only Neo-Nazi Skinheads, KKK, and anyone who viciously hates anyone else need apply.

As the Trump Train keeps merrily rolling along, chalk up another demographics now solidly against Le Grande Orange...he lost long ago, the Latino and the Muslim Vote, he's never won or will ever win the Women Vote, the Black Vote is non-existent, he lost the Senior Citizens, the Youth, and the Asians, and half of the Republican Party, and now the Jewish Vote?!?!
But, you don't have to worry about this poor man...Trump still has all the public support and assistance of the Racists and Hatemongers of America!...and with Ted Nugent's fine endorsement? Trump got all the Pedophile Vote locked up, too!!

The Trumpster may be a foolish idiot...but he's not completely, totally stupid...he knew exactly what he did! He knew exactly what it meant...and he knew exactly what he wanted it to mean by it. Yes! there's no doubt Trump is engaged in an anti-Semitic behavior, and his exercise in graphic art is a giant anti-Semitic Statement!

Bibi Netanyahu must be wondering how and why is he supporting an anti-Semite?...Beware of the Company You Keep, Bibi! And America? We created this greedy little piece of shit...and on Tuesday, Nov. 3rd, America can give him a proper Au Revoir!..."You're Fired"!!

Trump Attaches A Star Of David To Hillary Clinton In Repulsive Anti-Semitic Tweet

Jun 29, 2016

Trump's Predicament: Pro-Choice or Pro-Life?

 By RF Schatten

 Donald Trump's trigger happy Twitter Trolling has gone rather silent...while continuing his Troll attacks on Clinton and Warren...the Donald is doing his hardest to ignore the question on "Abortion". It's like saying; if I don't mention it, no one will care what I think cause I'm The Donald!

Getting caught in blatant outright lies is the norm for the Trump for President Campaign, but this time truly he's between a rock and a hard place...for the first time the Trumpster is going to have to come out publicly and take a firm stance, without dismissing it or blaming Clinton, Warren, Sanders, Obama, or Muslim Terrorists!

Donald's biggest flaw? he's not a politico...and as his 'new' Campaign Manager, Paul Manafort said;  "We have a candidate who doesn’t need to figure out what’s going on in order to say what he wants to do". In other words, Trump is a Clueless human being, a bad Amateur playing in the big leagues who's never learned the 1st law in Politics 101..."remember what you say, and to whom you said it to"
When he speaks to Right Wing Conservative groups and spews his horseshit sales schpiel of being a "Born-Again Christian", and promises to nominate "Anti-Abortion Judges Only" if elected President. He better remember what he said, cause being formerly a Pro-Choice advocate, and not backing those Conservatives "Values" after the Supreme Court struck down Texas' Abortion Law...is he still favoring Women's Abortion Rights?...he better come out with the right BS answer, cause his core of support doesn't believe Women should have any rights, whatsoever!

A creepy Chauvinistic Misogynist...a man who has no morals, no scruples, and no values! A Xenophobe, except when it comes to his wives! A professional philanderer and man about town who cheats on Wife #1 with future Wife #2 and so on...believes while married, he has all the legal right to Rape his Wives!...ever since he was found not guilty of raping Ivana on his argument that there's "No Such Thing as Marital Rape"!

What values does Donald Trump have other than what's good to Donald Trump? He has openly degraded the Black Community as lazy and criminals, the Hispanic Community as rapists and drug attics, the Muslim Community as Terrorists...anyone who's Pro-Black, Pro-Latino, or ProMuslim, and now Native Americans....do not belong in a Lilly White Fascist America! He publicly mocks the Disabled, disrespects Foreign Leaders, members of his own Party, and believes the Press should not have their Freedom unless they write favorably about him? And Women?? What sector of the population does Don still has left? ahh well, Donald Trump is just a lIttle man...a little coward of a man!

A Republican Party endorsing Trump's Anti-Intellectualism and Anti-Feminism causes publicly and in its Platform?...they have absolutely nothing to offer! After eight or so years fruitlessly obstructing Obama from getting anything done...they've never spent enough time developing good fresh national political faces for the Party, one that can possibly take the White House some day! The GOP? hoping for a miracle before arriving in Cleveland.

In a year that the Abortion issue has dramatically resurfaced just months before a new President is elected...at a time when the vast majority of the United States favors Pro-Choice, the Republicans only viable threat and hope is Anti-Feminist Donald Trump?!?!
And in a year that the Democratic Party has the strongest Pro-Choice and Pro-Women candidate(s) in US Political History? The possibility of an all Female Tag Team ticket versus the Trumpster and his mystery partner...whomever the Republicans can pay-off enough to run alongside Le Grande Orange. An intriguing situation...and an old question since August 18th,1920...can a Woman ever become President (or) Vice President of the United States?

A Clinton/Warren ticket...whether it would happen or not...would be a natural rivalry! The one thing that irks Trump more than anything else on this earth is being questioned on his self-proclaimed Busines acumen and his history of infidelity, his bullying of Women...and especially in competition with women! With Clinton and Warren going at him, like no one has ever done before? Nothing gets under the Trumpster's skin more than an annoying Female telling him that even with all his money, he still basically sucks as a man...and no one more than the one-two punch of Hillary and Elizabeth could cause such devastating blow to this gynephobe egocentric's ego!   

It took Women's Suffrage 30 years or so to get the Women's Right to Vote...it looks like it's gonna take 96 years for a Woman President to show how a woman can do the job as well, or better than a man...unless that political aberration known as Don the Con, can con enough people to pull off the miracle that America...and probably Trump himself, don't want!

Donald Trump's Silence On SCOTUS Abortion Ruling Angers Conservatives

Jun 26, 2016

Donald's Concerns?...Trump's America's Concerns!

 By RF Schatten

"I respect the decision made by the people of the United Kingdom,"...that's the official political sound-byte from Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and the rest of the Democratic Party. The GOP? A sort of mix reviews by Trump and anti-Trump aficionados, but the official Statement from the Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan?..."I respect the decision made by the people of the United Kingdom"! I wonder if everyone just read the same pass around script?

While real professionals from Politicos to Business to Academia are watching closely and cautiously the events transpiring between Great Britain and the European Union...and the uncertainty of the future of their economy, and that of rest of the world's...no one else on this God's earth but Donald Trump can say at a time like this; "If the pound goes down, more people are coming to Turnberry, frankly!!"
By the way!...Turnberry is the new Trump Golf Resort that he's currently inaugurating and doing his own PR shtick while congratulating himself for the "wonderful" facility in Scotland!

Very Presidential...isn't he? His concern for America appears non-existent while he gloats away on his newest facility  He's going to be the first President in US History to spend his entire career in office doing Ribbon Cutting Photo-ops for all his Trump enterprises!...now, that's Presidential!?!?

His heartfelt concern for the American People? It's not even on his horizon...it's more like his heartfelt concern on making a financial killing, scamming more creditors and ripping them off during another of his Bankruptcy maneuvers. "I've taken advantage of the laws of this country, like other people"....the fact: today's Average Joe will declare bankruptcy cause he's truly in financial despair is morally right to file a petition. It's an advantage the Govt. gives you to be able to start your life over again!

But a Billionaire who uses legal technical maneuvers to find ways of getting what he really wants...getting out of obligations scot free, not paying off his creditors like in Atlantic City, and writing off all his problems as a big Tax Losses. "I take advantage of the laws of this country"? Yes, he does...but loving all those uneducated people sure helps his cause and his career!

While Congress, from both sides of the aisles...and in a bi-partisan stance...believe in the concerns of the American Constituent, the presumptive Nominee of the Republican Party, Donald Trump, is enjoying his opening day festivities in Grand Style and promoting yet another "wonderful" "beautiful" and "enormous" Trump Golf Resort. Why would he worry? "If the Pound goes down, more people are coming to Turnberry"...and naturally, play Golf and spend a pretty penny at his "Fabulous" Resort!

"Just arrived in Scotland. The Place is going wild over the vote. They took their country back, just like we will take America back"!!...ahhyup! reminds me of the saying; It's better to remain silent and be thought of as a fool...then to speak up and remove all doubts.  Le Grande Orange doesn't have to remain silent, his big fat mouth exposed this fool, long time ago!

A person, who even while exercising his right to run for a very serious and civil office as President of the United States, takes off and galavant's his way to Scotland for another ribbon cutting opening of a resort...and while there, hears the news about the Brexit Vote. Without any concern for those who he calls his constituents...or the far majority of the Country that are not...the first words out of his derrière was; the Scots took back their Country!
With all due respect to whoever taught Don the Con how to think!...Scotland voted overwhelmingly to "Remain" in the EU!...and no! they didn't "take back their Country" they're still part of Great Britain!  And this goofball says he's the smartest mind on earth with the greatest memory in the planet...and doesn't need Policies to run this Country?!?!

When you're President of the United States and you respect much more your personal self-interests ahead of the interests of a Country, just shows the "realDonaldTrump"...his huge total lack of respect for others, his indifference to anybody else except himself, his disdain for the common man...whether a Democrat or Republican or Independent, he's not your friend or your ally...unless he can use you!  A greedy little shit who doesn't want or need anybody cause he can do it all by himself...and also, keep those campaign funds all for himself, too! His paid National Campaign Staff is less than 100 people!...naturally, that's more money for The Donald!

Can Trump win the hearts and mind of the American Voters? In normal conditions, No! But this is not your normal every day National Election!...Trump can conceivably win. A split in the Republican Party usually will hurt them, but with a split brewing in the Democratic side too? Anything can happen, and with neither Party totally enamored with their presumptive candidate, both sides are talking about voting their idealistic "conscience"!

The "Conscientious Voter" got Nixon elected...thank you, Gene McCarthy! and got George W elected...thanks, Ralph Nader! A little pragmatic thinking...just a little common sense...would've been enough to stop both, Dubya and Dick Nixon...a little logic and common sense can stop the Trumpster, too! The question is; How much common sense, logic, and critical thinking does the American Electorate still have??

Trump: "Making Money from Campaign Funds"

 By RF Schatten

“It’s very possible that I could be the first Presidential Candidate to run and make money on it” ~~~ Donald Trump  in 2000 Forbes Interview

No, Donald Trump wasn't kidding!...he knew 16 years ago how to pull off his greatest con, ever!...and with the GOP Convention less than a month away...the Trumpster has a knack for adding more fuel to a fire that's going to engulf Quicken Loans Arena and destroy the last vestiges of what once was a proud Grand Old Party.
The signs of a full mutiny by a dissatisfied Republican Party is in the works, 48% of the GOP wants to Dump Trump, and every day new issues arrive that makes their case for a Delegate coup d'é·tat...a much more plausible moral obligation.

How to personally profit from a political campaign you know it doesn't have much of a chance?...put on the worst possible campaign that's not gonna have a chinaman's chance of ever winning, collect big bundles of cash from your donors...then, take the money and run out of Dodge City with all the loot! Don the Con must be a big fan of "The Producers"...though the trouble was, it became a hit!

In Trump's case, his management style of the Money appropriated to him by the RNC...and by donors...is to invest those funds right back into his own personal businesses. First, his Charity Fundraiser for Veterans was a complete total faux exercise...then an embarrassing acknowledgement of his horseshit lies...about raising those $6 Million Dollars for the Vets made the Trumspter reluctantly in public, write a Check reimbursing the GIs for the money, the $6 Million that either never existed, or he spent it on one of his businesses.

Now, the poor little rich boy is running out of Campaign Funds, and needs an advance from the GOP...$1.3 Million is all he has left! Compared to Clinton who raised $27 Million in May with a War Chest of at least $42 Million before the DNC Convention even takes place! But his businesses are doing much better, thank you very much!!

$350,000 for Tag Air, Trump's Jet Planes and Helicopters. $423,372 for the use of Mar-A-Lago...his Palm Beach State that's converted into as a Private Club. Trump Restaurant $125,080 for Rent and Utilities...he has the GOP literally paying for all his own Restaurant's expenses!
More expenses for Republicans from "Crooked" Donald...Trump Towers charged $72,000 for rent and utilities for the use of Trump's Campaign Headquarters, and $35,845 Catering Republicans at Trump's Golf Course and $29,715 for rentals and catering at another Trump Golf Course. A little conflict of interest between Trump's shenanigans, his own businesses and the monetary rip-off of the Republican Party?!?!

What kind of a degenerate is willing to make money out of the very same people who are donating to help him and his cause, to move on? And this piece of work says he doesn't need the GOP to help him out and get elected?...and that he can do it all by his genius self? Not if the Republican mainstream can help it! The Ides of March are conspiring...who will deliver Brutus' slap in the back? with the message...you're fired!!

Trump has publicly stated that it's very possible to make good money from his supporters, as he runs for the Presidency...and "Makes America Great Again". Yes! there 'is' a nice big reason why Donald Trump loves poorly educated and uneducated People!

Trump's insignificance for the 1st Amendment

 By RF Schatten

"Congress shall make no Law respecting an establishment of Religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the Freedom of Speech, or of the Press; or the right of the people peaceably to
assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances" ~~ 1st Amendment, United States Constitution

Not even during the entanglements of Watergate and Washington Post's Woodward & Bernstein...not even then! did Richard Nixon ever ban the Post from reporting the News! Or any other newspaper for that matter.

Justice Louis Brandeis once wrote; "Freedom to think as you will and to speak as you think are means indispensable to the discovery and spread of Political Truth."...but Donald John Trump takes an exception to what the Supreme Court can do and how they decide cases...as "ultimate absolute
leader", which is his personal perception of the Presidency, The President of the United States will 'not allow' a Newspaper, whether a Brick & Mortar or through the Global Village's infinite resources...from reporting the News. A little Fascist Totalitarian wet dream for his ego?
Why? The Press Lies!...and you can believe me, cause you know I know everything anyone needs to know in this world!...just trust me!

Interpretation: The Trumpster goes batshit crazy when anyone criticizes anything he does or says, and especially his business acumen!...if they do, he just sends a barrage of Lawsuits at them! 3,500+ Lawsuits 'directly' involving Le Grande Orange in his adult life!...when the hell does he have the time to cheat on all his wives?!?!

This nation has had its share of Presidential "characters"...but never had this country seen such a thin-skinned egotistical transparent slime of a Demagogue, and Professional Fraud...as a major Political Leader! The "Marketplace of Ideas" metaphor, certainly does not exist in Don's enclosed little World.

I keep saying; without Freedom of the Press, there's just no Freedom of Speech!...the Press is who speaks for the public, and has the right to say and write whatever they feel is newsworthy, if it's true, and if it's not?...they've been sued in the past folks...and lost big! Newspapers have been repeatedly sued by people who didn't like what someone wrote about them, so what's the big deal? sometimes they win and sometimes they lose...so, Trump's fallacy that the Press is untouchable until he becomes President, takes over, and sets a series of Lawsuits at them all, is more horseshit out of the Horseshit King's mouth. The problem with Don The Con is he doesn't have a case to stand on in any of his Private or Public scandals.

But, denying the Press of their Right of Free Speech 'is' unconstitutional!...not even Heir Führer Drumpf has the legal right to change them! Our Forefathers did it specifically for what's happening today, as protection against another King George III reappearing from somewhere around the corner. Who would've guessed it was the Trumpster??...yea! but could George III spell "Biggly"?

When a person running for President says if he wins he'll use his Power to harass the Washington Post's Owner because the Post said nasty things about him...and plans to revoke CNN's License
cause apparently, they think he sucks? a real power hungry high-class rich schmuck...with absolutely no class of his own.
He banned reporters from the Huffington Post, Foreign Policy, Mother Jones, The Daily Beast, BuzzFeed, and Univision among others, besides the Washington Post, the Des Moines Register, and of all the Newspapers to pick? that historically heavy Republican-leaning newspaper and the rock
of New England Republicanism...New Hampshire's Manchester Union Leader!

For those who still don't understand how the News operates; Publishers since Poor Richard's Almanack till today, have always leaned heavier towards one side or the other, whether it's Knight, Cox, Hearst, Gannet, or today's Comcast, Time-Warner, Cablevision, or whoever the Publisher was or might be today....money has almost always played a role. And yes, live with it...it's a slap of reality on how our "Free World" works. Columnists Editorialize their prose either towards the Right or the
Left. But don't confuse News Reporting from Editorial Opinions. MSNBC is more about opinionated talk...NBCNews is primarily straight Reporting. So, knowing that...yes! as John Kasich said; "Trump ain't funny anymore". If he wins, will those above-mentioned Publications still be able to function with the same freedoms, Trump wants to take away?

Every Journalist, at one point or another, has heard the phrase; "Don't mess with the Press"...well, it's time for the Press to mess around and ban Donald Trump! Since he doesn't want anything to do with the press, anyway?...then, the Press should have nothing to do with him, either! If he's that big mouth superstar salesman that he always claims and brags to be? and can go at it alone as he says? and even, without the GOP's help?...then let's see how he can Make America Great Again with a total media blackout of his campaign!...without any press or media coverage, whatsoever!

The right response to Donald Trump? A media blackout. - The Washington Post

Dumbo's Mundo Bizarro...Chaos inside the GOP

  By RF Schatten

Welcome to Dumbo's Mundo Bizarro...yes! the Republicans are indeed in a very bizarre situation, as CNN's Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin says.

To endorse, or not to endorse...that 'is' the question the GOP's Upper Echelon are asking themselves nowadays...in between taking a couple of shots of Maalox, now and then...it's the worst of times for old school Republicans. It's pretty much the 'End' of another era for the "Party of Lincoln", as all the heights and highlights of the Grand Old Party as we know it, are becoming a distant memory.

Let's start with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and his regrettably lame endorsement of Donald Trump...Republicans got to unite behind our nominee! Lame enough?? It's hard to unify under Trump, but it's harder to separate themselves from the GOP. Elections are always about beating their archenemy, the Democrats, at any cost and for no matter the reason...as is for Democrats when they go after Republicans.
But, it's also hard to support a candidate that keeps attacking his own Party, the GOP in general...plus everyone in Congress...so, how long will these resentful supporters keep supporting him?

Supporters: The line-up for this cast of usual suspects began with another bully right from across the Hudson, Chris Christie! That, followed by a Medical "Professor" and Pioneer Brain Surgeon who makes real good money in Medicine, but claims not to believe in Medical Science? Mr. Excitement, Ben Carson! And the Witch of Silicon Valley, Ex-Hewlett Packard CEO, and another Political loser x2, Carly Fiorina!...and what Clown Show can go without the Republican's very own crowned Queen of batshit stupidity?...Sarah Palin!

But his real support ends pretty much there...Trump got another lame endorsement, this time from Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, though that appears headed in another direction...in another of the long list of un-endorsements, after the latest barrage of Trump Horseshit thrown at someone who previously endorsed him. This time, when Ryan disagreed with Trump about his "Textbook Definition of a Racist".
While the show continues; every day more talks of un-endorsements, non-endorsements, of platform fights and more...can the GOP endorse someone's run for the Presidency, and endorse a sociopath, and his platform of shutting down the Free Press, complete Absolute Power, encouragement of Mob Violence, Hate, Fear, Bigotry, and Racism? You can't say anything negative about Heir Donald, either...or he'll drive you to drink with his wrath of insults on Twitter!...and from his following, too!
And it's becoming quite clear by the day that Trump forces including his select group of White Supremacists plan to fight for their platform at any cost...and as Toobin said;  "It's going to be a lot better story than any Political Convention I have ever attended"!

The list of non-supporters? Start with Former President George W Bush, Jeb "Can Fix It" Bush and Former President George HW Bush, who's worked with Bill Clinton in Clinton's emergency relief projects.
Let's continue with the Party's last nominee, Mitt Romney...who publicly calls Trump, a Phony, a Con Artist, and a Fraud! US Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) said there's absolutely no way he will support the Trumpster. Senator Ben Sasse (NE), Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol, Former Gov. Tom Ridge, Former Florida Gov. Mel Martinez...and the most intriguing one of them all...Former NJ Governor and EPA Administrator under George W Bush, Christine Todd Whitman...she's Voting for Hillary!

The question is; will the GOP man up and battle the Trump Train? Or will they accept the Trumpster and let all the anger just be water under the bridge?
If Trump loses...besides going apeshit berserk and stark raving looney...will he start a Walkout a la Strom Thurmond & his supporters' famed Walkabout, straight out of the 1947 Democratic Convention?
A Trump Walkout? how about a GOP Walkout on Trump!?!? that would make it much more symbolic of how they feel about this "Apprentice"!...it would embarrass the hell out of Le Grande Orange and piss him off, just when he needs to be most Professional! That alone would definitely make quite a story:  A Political Party of Conservative Values, taken over by ignorantly stupid Extreme Right Wing White Nationalists trash...with their ultimate hero, Donald Trump leading them and Making 'White America', Great Again!

What's going to happen at Mundo Bizarro 2016 AKA Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland July 18th - 21st? In Toobin's words; "Beats the Hell out of Me"! It's going to be very interesting to see how the GOP and the RNC handles a super egotistical, power-hungry, and confident Trump?...and how they handle his ever-loving legion of fanatic Fascist followers? And I will continue to keep saying; the City of Cleveland deserves something way much better!

All I can say is, it could not have happened to a better and finer group of (un)concerned degenerate Politicos, and it could not have come at any better and opportune time...Ringling Brothers are retiring all their Dumbos!...isn't it about time this old White Elephant retires, too?
