Trumpism Gazette: Grows and Spreads (It will Eventually Touch You)

Related image

We use the phrase "rational Americans" in any of our posts. Realize we do so with absolute certainty the nation is suffering from chronic insanity on the political and social Right.

Take a look and listen to the perfect examples of why we separate Right and Left for purpose of prose. When the political advertisement has core props of numerous firearms and with consideration of the overwhelming number of firearm deaths across the nation, our contempt for all things Right is reinforced.

Now we speak of the hurt from Trumps ObamaCare cuts?

The good doctor and that letter we all knew he did not write. Talking Points Memo and John Marshall.

Trump as Nobel Peace Prize Recipient?

Are you up to speed on the current move to secure a Nobel Peace Prize for Trump?  Of course, the President of South Korea is speaking openly about the matter as he, as a middle of the road peacemaker, has sought peace with Kim Jong Un since he took office a year ago. If you are not aware of other efforts don't feel put off. Most TV media isn't covering Trump's wish for the Prize; social media, on the other hand, is rife with reports of subterfuge via stolen identities to nominating Trump.  

National print media have published a few accounts of the fake letters  We feel the Washington Post piece is a detailed accounting of what is known to date (linked here).   

Let's think for a minute. We have a doctor admitting he didn't write letters widely published in 2016 as a testimony of Trump's great health.  If you recall the former White House Physician to the President also read a letter of praise for Trump's health which included an advertisement for Trump DNA. Funny and strange things are occurring with letters during the era of Trump. 

Now for a quick run through what seems daily reports regarding a nation which is regressing regard race. Regressing to a time when nonwhites were rarely mentioned in the press, the media and seemed to live as what I (disparagingly) call The Invisible Negro.

I will wager not one of his police calling neighbors voted with a Left lean.

Also something remarkably conservative about this sheriff.

Wonder if Trump finds these people as "fine people on both sides?" Better yet, how about that death penalty he espouses.

Speaking of conservatives embracing racism. How about a bit of Pence and his snuggle with Arpaio? "

 “America’s toughest sheriff”

Since 2015 Trump has been very open and preachy about our need to seek the death penalty against "drug dealers". While I have little to no sympathy for anyone who sells drugs, it should be noted Trump hasn't commented in any form regarding the 47 white supremacists recently arrested in Texas for the manufacturer and selling all sorts of harmful street drugs. 

Follow the story via the Huffington Post. 

Do you think Trump would recommend the death penalty for those arrested if they are found guilty? 

Do you recall this from July 2015

How about we end with a peep at the real impact of Trump/Ryan's tax cuts (which Ryan loves to call "tax reform")?

Tax Reform Ryan calls it.  Yes, of course....

TPI Morning Gazette: Arpaio, TRUMP'D, Louisiana Guns, Walker

Non-Progressive News...

Louisiana Killings

And, Louisiana Governor Jindal stood on camera bemoaning the tragic death of two young women at the twisted mind and hands of a fellow conservative as if gun deaths in his state is a one-off reality.

When have you last heard or read about an assault weapons ban? What about the last time your heard or read about a lunatic summarily killing innocent unarmed people with a semiautomatic weapon or a killing via a assault rifle? Recent correct? Whether or not legally purchased, you have recent experience with both weapons. Our experience with such killings seem to proliferate and expand exponentially.

MediaMatters offers a piece with the NRA's web series Noir. The gun manufacturer sponsored web series and its outreach to millennials and African-Americans is hosted by Colion Noir.

Yes, the series has a Fox News model with (at tiems) ample shots (words chosen carefully) of Noir's co host. 

We know the mission of the NRA: facilitate weapons sells and stifle legislation that would negatively influence weapon sales. Business is business and the organization will fulfill tis mission open way or another. Yet, use of US Jim Crow as an analogy to a phantom assault weapons ban is crass, insensitive and a utter insult to African-Americans and any American who abhors the nation's history of racism and oppression.

Noir and Jim Crow via Media Matters...

The National Rifle Association debuted the third season of its web series Noir with the claim that singling out assault weapons for bans is a "form of tactical Jim Crow-style segregation." 
Launched in 2014, Noir is the flagship program in the the NRA's "Freestyle" network, a digital platform that seeks to attract a younger audience to replace the NRA's aging demographic. The show is hosted by Colion Noir, a popular gun blogger turned NRA News commentator, and is sponsored by gun manufacturer Mossberg. 
During the show's July 22 season debut, Noir warned about the prospect of a future assault weapons ban following a high-profile shooting, and claimed that selecting which guns fall within a ban is a "form of tactical Jim Crow-style segregation -- where if you don't shoot that kind of gun, you don't care what happens to it -- that will cause us to all lose our rights." 
"Ironically, most guns are separate but pretty equal," Noir added.

We also continue with our flummoxed state regarding conservative America continues flaunting our shameful past as a component of avoidance strategy. Conservative America is in no embraces Civil Rights, and I question its commitment to human rights (LGBT,unmarried women, the poor etc.). In fact, we find many conservatives care less about current manifestation of social oppression than they care about the nation's first African-American President.  Yet, they accept imagery (physical and subliminal) of institutions that thrived off the psyches and paradigms of people may who support such oppression and oppressive institutions.

Is outreach into communities that historically failed to support the NRA and did not support rampant weapon proliferation so important shows hosts like Noir actually derive benefit for the NRA? Is Noir's audience so socially deprived and intellectually shielded from the horrific blanket of Jim Crow they accept the analogy? Regardless of any answers that may have assuaged the matter, use of Jim Crow, and equally prevalent use of slavery as analogies speaks to the lowest levels of manipulation.

Cruz Attacks McConnell
"Flat-Out Lied"

When politics causes fights among bedfellows, politics becomes more a joke and actually becomes humorous. It seems the political Right is racking under the influence of strategy towards the 2016 primaries.

We do not have deep faith the Feds will take action against the nations number of racist cop, but we find a degree of solace in the investigation. There are times when a serious legal fright modifies behavior.

Arpaio II Jurassic Era Birther (racist)

Even after President Obama acquiesced to US racism and revealed his birth certificate, some continue the shameful quest of aversion to our African-American President.

"We're working on a fraudulent, forged government document," Arpaio told CNN's Jake Tapper.
And Arpaio isn't alone. According to a 2014 YouGov poll, 15 percent of Americans 'know for sure' the president wasn't born in the United States.
Arpaio would do much better for himself if he adorned the customary attire of the US ultra racist:
