Your Trump Vote Is An Antithesis To American Values

An optic for the ages.  Black, supposed, ministers who publicly responded to Trumps failed attempt to have 100 black ministers' visit Trump Towers.  How does these "ministers' reconcile what follows?

Donald Trump's irrefutable support from white supremacists.

White Supremacists Heimbach frequents Trump rallies

If you think Heimbach is simply an overzealous Trump supporter, think again. He admits to Pat Buchanan as a major political influence.

A Falling Deficit: A Concern and A Relevant Retort

Andrew Rei has responded to a lengthy piece from The National Memo. The National Memo piece is a full six pages and embodies the Memo author's, Jason Sattler's views on the falling deficit. As you can see from the title and associated parenthetic comment, Sattler isn't convinced a falling Deficit as we see the declined today is "all good."

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Accolades From Right-wing Media; Apology To A Group Of WW II Vets!

During the recent Ted Cruz "Republican Positioning Carnival Act" the eight (8) month Senator from Texas showed the extent to which demagoguery can easily lead to callousness and extreme insensitivity.

Cruz's rhetoric during the speech was completely laced with inane ramblings of a somewhat disjointed mind. Yet, there was one segment of his clown show (towards the end) that caught the attention of people who seriously found his reference disgusting.  No, we are not referencing his silly and misguided Dr. Zeuss "Green Eggs and Ham" speaking point.  Others have dealt with the fallacy of his going there and they have done so very effectively. Before joining others in the details of another speech screw-up, I must ask a couple of questions.

Is Ted Cruz a former member of the US military?

Did his father serve in US wars?

As I did not waste even one second of my life on Republican manipulation during these serious times, I have to defer to Buzz Feed for a reference. Cruz apparently closed his clown show with a series of thank-you expressions. He also must have felt one final need to self-aggrandize and self-popularize himself with what he thought was a fitting analogy for his 21 hour one-man cluster (exercise). He used an analogy to the Word War II "Death March to Bataan!"

His reference was so typically GOP crass. In fact, his speech garnered and is garnering the attention he sought while playing to million of "low information" people. His quest is being significantly enhanced by Right -wing media and far-right 'false' religious profiteers. We well link to a gallery of disgust from people who are lauding Cruz as the second coming of Rush Limbaugh.

But, before we go there, how about Cruz's apology to men who served in World War II and who suffered the horrors and rigors of the Death March.
Cruz could not wait to apologize: Linked.
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz compared his 21-hour speech on the Senate floor against Obamacare to the infamous Bataan Death March that killed hundreds of American troops at the hands of the Japanese during World War II. Cruz was speaking Wednesday at the conclusion of his remarks thanking staff who stayed up through the night for his speech.
Cruz's antics since riding his tea party constituents into the US Senate have been very much outside of any decorum common to such a formerly esteemed governing body.  He appeals to the Far-right like a sort of messiah, and his actions are working well for rhetoric from highly paid demagogues as they feed their audiences.  The National Memo has capture a few examples with video of opportunistic use of the Cruz clown-show. The only missing link is a reaction from Rush Limbaugh.

We ask that you keep in mind, if you navigate to The National Memo, you will view unadulterated evidence of why the nation cannot allow the Right to take over as a governing body.

The National Memo

As the good folks at Right Wing Watch point out, the Biblical tale of Elijah ends with him having the prophets of Baal seized and slaughtered, which is just a minor difference from reading Green Eggs and Ham and voting for a procedural motion to advance the very bill he was protesting. In any case, there’s probably a lesson to be learned by Fischer here about worshipping false idols.
