The KKK Then, and Especially trump’s KKK NOW

My father’s family emigrated from Eastern Europe in the very early 1900s, locating in the Boston, MA area. His parents, aunts, uncles and cousins all lived in Boston and a few surrounding communities into the 1930s. My father was among the first to leave, in 1932, traveling by himself across country at the age of 16, eventually relocating to Los Angeles. Over the next few years most of his family members made a similar journey, including his parents and sister.

trumpCrusader endorsement for presidentBut a few years earlier, one small group of his family made a different move, from Boston to a small town in Missouri. They had planned to start a new life there, but their dreams were soon crushed, their faith in humanity along with it, and the health and well-being of some of them also permanently destroyed. In that small Missouri town, there was one group that was the government, that was the law, and that controlled who prospered and who feared for their life every waking moment. That group was the Ku Klux Klan. And they did not want Jews in their community.

Instead of living in that small Missouri town for generations, they stayed only a few painful weeks. The KKK did not just intimidate, the KKK did not just use epithets, the KKK did not just use symbols of hatred, the KKK physically attacked their new Jewish neighbors, causing painful and permanent injuries, Continue reading

Those gop Govs are Doing Real Well

It never ceases to amaze me how millions of voters can consistently vote against their own best interests when it comes to electing the people who pass the laws they must live with in their daily lives, and who like and support politicians while despising the policies they pass into law. Of the 50 states, currently 31 have republican governors. and almost without exception, they are despised and vilified by a majority of their constituents, but somehow they get re-elected, and if not, another younger, richer and most extreme republican takes their place.

A recent study in the news this week has listed the most hated and disapproved governors in the US, and to no surprise, of the 15 most disliked governors, 12 are republicans.

Among that top 15, you have mindless nincompoops like Oklahoma’s Mary Fallin who twiddles her Koch-Brothers thumbs while her state has seen pervasive and restricted fracking increase earthquakes in the state from, well, NEVER, to oh, HUNDREDS of 3.0 and above per year. You have philanders like Alabama’s Robert Bentley whose affair with a

state-paid “advisor” is under investigation for numerous ethical and financial violation. You have Rick Snyder of Michigan who Continue reading

How Many Deplorables Does It Take….

Why did the Deplorables cross the road? trump told them it would make them rich and keep the Muslims out of Merika.

How many Deplorables have graduated from trump University? None – trump University did not accept Confederate money for the tuition.

How many Deplorables does it take to screw in a light bulb? Doesn’t matter – none of them have electricity.

How many Deplorables received mortgages from trump Mortgage Company? None – trump Mortgage only made loans on real estate and did not loan money on house trailers.

How many Deplorables eat trump steaks or drink trump Vodka? None – both are priced too high to buy with food stamps.

How many Deplorables wear hats? None, you cannot put a hat on over your hood.

How many Deplorables actually work for trump? That’s a trick question as trump only employees foreign workers who cannot vote in the USA. Continue reading

Progressives: Don’t Drink the Jill Stein KoolAid

There is a strong movement to co-opt Bernie Sanders supporters and other Progressives to the jill stein Green Party camp. DO NOT BE FOOLED – many of her values and her beliefs are anathema to true Progressive beliefs and to Bernie supporters.

A lot can been seen about stein by her pick for vice president, Ajamu Baraka, and what he has said about Bernie, who Baraka has called a Racist, an Imperialist, and a supporter of Saudi Arabian Terrorism:

“For Bernie and his supporters, the mischief that the Saudi government and private individuals have been engaged in across the region financing groups like ISIS wasn’t dirty enough

“This is the world that a President Sanders promises—continued war crimes from the sky with drone strikes and Saudi led terror in support of the Western imperial project…”

Stein has produced an onslaught of vile criticism against Hillary Clinton, rivaling that of trump, Continue reading

How trump Has Divided America

There is now no question that American has been divided into two categories of people, on one hand those who are clear thinking, who look beyond the rhetoric and search out the truth, and on the other hand those who believe the liturgy of lies continually spewed forth by the biggest con man in modern world history, whose descent into narcissism, likely paranoia and insanity, and who now apparently also has become delusional, has made a mockery of the 2016 presidential election process.

It was back at the beginning of the primary process when former candidate carly fiorina described a disgusting but non-existent video she alleged condemned Planned Parenthood. It did damage, remember the mass shooting at a Planned Parenthood office not too long thereafter, but the truth then became part of her rapid decline and exposure as yet another pretender who could only find success through deceit. Perhaps it was this

incident that led trump to the belief that his campaign of outrageous lies could be stimulated to greater heights by describing other non-existent videos, which he has now done on at least two occasions - first the phony description of “thousands of Muslims in New Jersey” cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center, and now the airplane loaded with cash transporting $400 M to Iran.

Or does he actually believe these things? Is the trump ALSO delusional? Continue reading

trump’s Fast Descent into Insanity

Insanity – “Mental illness of such a severe nature that a person cannot distinguish fantasy from reality, cannot conduct her/his affairs due to psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior.” (

Or, “1. A deranged state of the mind usually occurring as a specific disorder (as schizophrenia);
2. Such unsoundness of mind or lack of understanding as prevents one from having the mental capacity required by law to enter into a particular relationship, status, or transaction or as removes one from criminal or civil responsibility;
3a Extreme folly or unreasonableness;
3b Something utterly foolish or unreasonable” from

And of course: Paranoia – “a mental condition characterized by delusions of persecution, unwarranted jealousy, or exaggerated self-importance, typically elaborated into an organized system. It may be an aspect of chronic personality disorder, of drug abuse, or of a serious condition such as schizophrenia in which the person loses touch with reality.”

Or, 1. A psychosis characterized by systematized delusions of persecution or grandeur usually without hallucinations;
2. A tendency on the part of an individual or group toward excessive or irrational suspiciousness and distrustfulness of others, also from

Or, finally, “Paranoia is an unfounded or exaggerated distrust of others, sometimes reaching delusional proportions. Paranoid individuals constantly suspect the motives of those around them, and believe that certain individuals, or people in general, are ‘out to get them.’” from

It seems like almost daily some person of note chimes in with a public statement that “donald trump is insane” or that “donald trump is insane to say ….. [add in whatever latest rant or idea he has espoused]”. The press has reported such pronouncements Continue reading

Scapegoats and Wristbands in the GOP’s America

An unmistakable similarity of donald trumps’ presidential campaign and of the campaign that brought adolph hitler to power and that then fueled the rise of nazism through Europe was the reliance on scapegoats, the pervasive assumption, hammered home at every available opportunity, that “we are great, but for” those within who seek to destroy us, those among us who have their own selfish self-interests who when allowed to exist in our society, have for their personal benefit and for the betterment only of their own group

caused us, and will continue to cause us, great harm.

Once the appropriate scapegoat population had been named, the next step in both instances was to call for their elimination. hitler focused primarily on the Jews, be he was no less clear in his ostracizing of and calls for elimination of Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, the
disabled, and other groups that detained the prosperity of Germany and the position of his “master race” as the leader of the world.

With trump, the path has been eerily similar, Continue reading

Two-Faced rubio Lying Then, Lying Now

It was back in the fall of 2015 when marco rubio, in the early stages of the race for the gop nomination for president, made some very serious pronouncements about his current job, what he thought of it, and regarding his future. It’s the “White House or Bust” for rubio, as he declared that he had “given up” on the US Senate, that it was too slow and too rule-bound, and that, with emphasis added as an excuse for missing so many votes, that he was leaving the Senate, and that he was NOT running for re-election (“Rubio gives up on Senate: ‘He hates it’”).

Even after he dropped out of the presidential race in March, he reiterated his statements, telling reporters:

“I’m gonna finish out my term in the Senate and over the next ten months we are going to work really hard here – we have some things we want to achieve – and then I’ll be a private citizen in January.

“No. No, I’m not running for reelection to the Senate.” (“Marco Rubio Emotionally Announces He Will Not Seek Senatorial Reelection”)

rubio has also lamented the failure of any of his great ideas, embodied in several failed

bills, to be embraced and passed. While he has actually been on the right side of some issues, in particular immigration reform, at least at one point in time, the vast majority of his ideas were horrid, including such proposals as rolling back EPA regulations, and the most absurd one of all, a bill to prohibit signs describing highway and other projects from crediting President Obama’s stimulus bill for proving funds.

June 20, 2016 – The Day that Should Have Capsized trump

I’m writing this the day after the messenger was vilified, insulted, and of course, shot. But none of that makes the message untrue, and despite it all, the messenger lives.

On Monday, June 20, two matters concerning the trump came to life, and yesterday, I posted in a couple of places on Facebook the mere fact of one of them, that it was reported and that if proved true, could be the issue that finally derails the until now

impervious trump from his road to the gop presidential nomination.

Well, the response from the gop faithful and trump-ites was not to be believed. I merely related the message that a woman had filed a federal lawsuit alleging the trump had raped her when she was 13 years old. You would have
thought that the messenger was the rapist, given the vehemence of the personal attacks against me for bring the message. Continue reading
