10 New Major Endorsements Won By Donald Trump

Posted on January 28, 2016 by List of X

Donald Trump stands visibly uncomfortable while getting endorsed by Sarah Palin, because endorsement by Sarah Palin is probably like your own conception: you want it to happen, but don't want to be there when it happens.

Donald Trump stands visibly uncomfortable (left) while getting endorsed by Sarah Palin. I guess endorsement by Sarah Palin is probably like your own conception: you want it to happen, but don’t want to be there when it happens.

Last week, Donald Trump’s presidential campaign had received a major boost when in a public appearance, former vice-presidential candidate and TV personality Sarah Palin went on raving and incoherent rant about Donald Trump and America, which most experts agreed constituted an endorsement of Donald Trump’s candidacy for president. But winning the coveted endorsement from Sarah Palin was just a start, and Trump has landed a lot of huge new endorsements from all kinds of people and organization. Here are 10 of these endorsements.

1) American Academy of Ophthalmology: “In his speeches, Donald Trump promises to be looking at a lot of things when he becomes president. Our organization recognizes and celebrates the utmost importance of looking at things, and supports any candidate who shares our values.”

2) Association of Bankruptcy Lawyers: “As people who have worked with Mr. Trump many times over the years, we are impressed by his perseverance and his ability to create hundreds of new jobs in many of our law firms. We believe that under Donald Trump’s leadership, America will enter a new chapter.”

3) Hair Club For Men: “Donald Trump cares about what’s important for our members. He knows all about growth, managing scarce resources, and his hair redistribution plan is just amazing.”

4) Mensa International Society: “Previously, we had required all applicants for membership in our organization to take an IQ test to prove their superior intelligence. However, thanks to Donald Trump, we have been able to greatly simplify the admissions process to simply look at prospective applicants’ Facebook comments mentioning Donald Trump.”

5) National Rifle Association: “Recent Trump’s comments that he could randomly shoot someone in the middle of a street and not lose votes prove that Donald Trump is serious about defending our constitutional right to randomly shoot people on the street.”

6) Donald Trump’s reflection in the mirror: “Look, I know Donald better than anyone else. I literally spend several hours every day with him. He isn’t some egotistical maniac people make him out to be. No, he’s the kindest, most selfless man alive – all he cares about is my needs and my wants.”

7) Neanderthals: “Ooogoo! Gooogoo! Ughh! Arrrhhhgoo! Trump yuuuge! Obama boo! Homo Sapiens go back! Go Trump!”  (Sorry, that may have been Sarah Palin’s endorsement again…)

8) Donald Trump’s Ex-Wife Association: “The choice to support Donald was a difficult one for our organization and many of our members had initially opposed it, but we ultimately decided to endorse Donald Trump for president, because we can’t possibly rob America of this amazing sense of hope and happiness the country would be filled with as soon as Donald’s term is over.”

9) Coalition for Mexican Immigrants Rights: “You may be surprised that we chose to endorse Donald Trump after he had promised to build a giant wall on the border with Mexico. However, where do you think President Trump is going to find the workers he needs to build this wall?”

10) American Comedian Guild: “Did you hear the joke about Donald Trump? Well, we got about a million more of them, and we’re not going to run out of them until at least 2025.”

when d-bags collide

Okay kids, in the latest right wing “dumpster fire” we have the Dumpster himself promising to boycott the next GOP debate, because he doesn’t think that the woman he has called a “bimbo”, a “bitch” a “lightweight” and god knows what else may not treat him with the adoration he seems to think he deserves …
What’s really scary for the Republican hierarchy at the moment is that Trump, by challenging their propaganda arm, is indirectly questioning the ideology that Fox has used to blinker the GOP base and cement their power …
Rabble-rousing rhetoric aside, The Dumpster is hardly conservative …
He’s a narcissistic, habitual liar who without qualms fakes his religiosity and faith …
He’s pro-choice … He thinks the government should negotiate with drug companies to keep Medicare costs down … He has flip flopped on so many issues he makes Mittens RMoney look like the King o’ Stableland …
He has the temperament of a sugared up, pissed off 4 year old with a tooth ache …
And maybe most dangerous of all to the GOP establishment, he displays an absolute contempt for Wall $treet bankers, the very funders of the GOP hierarchy and the beneficiaries of their every legislative action …
This is almost certainly due to his own insecurities and failures, but hey, it won’t matter what his reasons are if he goes on to win the nomination and kills the Republican party for a generation, if not forever …
If Trump keeps it up, white working class Americans, those people who’ve been voting against their own interests for decades now, the very ‘base’ that the right wing establishment has groomed, manipulated and deceived for decades, might finally freaking figure out that they have more in common with the Democratic party than they do with their own …
I’m also starting to wonder if Trump is not just desperately looking for an out …
It has always seemed to me that all this was ever about was raising his brand recognition, not securing the nomination, and now it’s starting to look a lot like he is starting to become concerned that the whole shell game he is actually running is going to backfire on him …
He’s probably spending more and more time saying to himself: “WTF, Holy Shit!!, I might win this thing! … Run away fast!” …

The Donald Trump Vs. Fox News Clusterfuck, Explained

donald gasbags trump by hip is everythingA quick recap of the tumultuous, on-again/off-again relationship between Fox News and Republican frontrunner Donald Trump:
Trump has an ally in Fox News.
Trump doesn’t like Megyn Kelly.
Trump irons things out with Roger Ailes.
Trump is boycotting Fox News.
Trump is no longer boycotting Fox News.
Trump spends New Year’s Eve with Fox News.
Trump might not show up at Fox News’ GOP debate.
Trump is kind of a chicken for ducking Fox News’ debate.
Trump is “definitely not” going to the debate.
Why can’t these two frenemies just get along?

Like the bickering Sam and Diane duo from Cheers sitcom fame, Trump and Fox News obviously belong together (they like all the same things!), but they just can’t get past their stubborn differences.
Thursday night’s Fox-hosted primary debate on the eve of the Iowa caucus has now been completely overshadowed by the roiling feud between friends/enemies Trump and Fox, as the two institutional bullies lock horns. Is the current impasse a lasting one, or will the harsh words be papered over in the days and weeks to come the way previous Trump vs. Fox skirmishes ended in handshakes and smiles? It’s too soon to tell.
What’s so strange about the discord is that Trump is practically the living personification of the Fox News id: He’s a bigoted nativist who wallows in Islamophobia and thrives on dividing Americans and insulting President Obama as an un-American radical.
After the traditionally nice campaign of Mitt Romney in 2012, you’d think Fox News would be loving the insult-throwing Trump, a candidate who, like so many Fox anchors and hosts, isn’t afraid to
make stuff up. Trump mirrors the often-tasteless brand of divisive rhetoric that Ailes helped hallmark at Fox.
But the truth is, Trump seems to hold Fox in the same
general contempt that he holds the rest of the press. Meaning, from the Trump worldview, Fox doesn’t operate on a similar plane as him. Fox is subservient to Trump and — in his mind — should be in the business of touting his campaign. If and when it does not, Trump loses his cool because he doesn’t like to be second-guessed by “lightweight” journalists.
This represents a whole new world for Fox, which has controlled the conservative debate, and in turn controlled Republican politicians, for more than a decade. Fox sets the parameters. Fox picks the agenda. Fox grooms a handful of Republicans for right-wing media stardom. That’s why I can’t recall anyone ever picking such a public fight with Fox News from inside the GOP tent the way Trump has. It’s simply not done. And Fox’s frantic,
off-key corporate response to Trump’s jabs has confirmed that executives there have very little practice fighting intramural skirmishes.
Forget that Fox cemented Trump’s right-wing celebrity status in 2011 when it handed over uninterrupted airtime for him to unfurl his misguided birther campaign against President Obama. Forget that Sean Hannity’s basement is probably lined with Trump for President posters.
Without Fox News’ exaggerated generosity over the years, and without Fox providing endless free airtime in the form of promotional blitzes to tout Trump as a possible presidential player, it’s unlikely Trump today would be perched atop the Republican field.
Trump this week is exercising a power play, pure and simple. (He knows he’s the reason Fox likely sold ads for the debate at a sky-high rate.) Bottom line: Roger Ailes is finally facing someone who’s willing, and eager, to out-bully him. And do it in public.
Of course what makes all this angry back-and-forth so funny is that one combatant is supposed to be a news organization. News organizations aren’t supposed have bizarre, on-going public spats with one party’s leading candidate. Anchors on a news channel aren’t supposed to plead with candidates to show up at debates. And the head of a news channels doesn’t usually try to patch things up by directly phoning powerful politicians. But this is Fox News, so all the normal rules go out the window.
Indeed, the underlying truth here is that if Fox News conducted itself as an ethical news outlet, these kinds of messy spats and hurt feelings wouldn’t be an issue. Instead, Fox is often run as a Republican National Committee marketing arm, or a GOP clubhouse, raising expectations from Republicans in terms of how they’ll be treated. Trump clearly senses a weakness there and is now trying to exploit it.
In August, I
suggested that Fox News, via the unwieldy Trump charade, had “eaten the Republican primary season” and that the “slow-motion fiasco is only going to get much, much worse for Republicans.”
Boy, has it. Democrats are likely pointing and laughing this week.

d-bag of the week – bat shit fever

golden d-bag of the week award by hip is everything

because the douchebaggery has not abated in any way since our last d-bag award, and all the sliminess and slithering that passes for sentient behavior in the so-called corridors of power still seem to be as rampant as ever, it must be time to single out our d-bag of the week … and, as all good deeds truly deserve some kind of reward, it’s that time again …
and (insert favorite deity here) knows, we certainly did have another week chock bloody full of scheming, lying politicians, incoherent, ass kissing, dog whistle blowing, incessantly blathering, windbag broadcasters, greedy, glamour glomming grifters and pointless, prevaricating and pontificating pricks …
so, it’s time to answer the question that seemingly needs to be answered kids …
just who took their act to the lowest of the low, the worst of the worst, the slimiest of the slimy, the doucheyist of the douchey? … are those even freakin’ words? …
they are now i guess … lol …
who was the king or queen of douchebaggery in the last seven days? …
who was the grandest douche rocket of the bunch? …
it was, as always, a week that was, full of some of the slimiest, sleaziest, slithering, scuzzball serpents the world of poll pandering, petulant and pithy partisan politics, fanatical, frenzied, far fetched faith freaks, and the exorbitant, exaggerated and exuberant elitist acquisitiveness, avarice and avidity that the preening power pricks(aka politics, religion and corporatocracy) has to offer …
and this week was as bad as every other lately, the norm these days it seems, with more than it’s fair share of despicable, degenerate douche bag dancing, misogynistic, mean-minded and mendacious maneuvers, slimy, sickening, sleaze-ball slithering, repugnant, reprehensible, repulsive and revolting rantings and railings, and an out and out torrent of treasonous talk and treacherous temper tantrums …
especially by the so-called “family values” gang over on the right and their bat shit crazy, bullshit bellowing, ideologically inane, greedy and groveling, greasy grifters and their prevaricating, petulant, pompous and pointlessly pious proponents …
in the end, as we always do, we found our winner …
and a rather deserving one, if I do say so myself …
and even though this week’s douche-off was not without a copiously crammed cornucopia of conniving, classless, clueless, crass and cretinous challengers to that majestic mantle of  mediocrity, mendacity, meandering mindlessness and missteps we like to call the ‘d-bag of the week’, we do have a distinct winner …
and who kids is the doucheyist of ‘em all this week? …
the envelope please … 

our winner of  the always deserved, rarely accepted d-bag of the week is …
that draft-dodging pedophile and musical has-been …
the man who deliberately shit his pants and didn’t change them so as to avoid the draft …
the ‘all talk, no walk’ loser from Detroit …
Ted ‘the Splooge’ Nugent
i bet he shits his pants again if destiny calls …
just sayin’ …

nugent all mouth no ballsTed Nugent Calls for Hanging Clinton and Obama After Seeing ’13 Hours’

Source: Mediaite
Ted Nugent has a lot of ideas and he has never been afraid to express them, even when they are violent and border on murderous threats. This morning, Nugent logged into Facebook to express to his 2 million followers how the new, floppy Michael Bay film, 13 Hours, made him feel.

Our unholy rotten soulless criminal America destroying government killed 4 Americans in Banghazi. Period! What sort of chimpass punk would deny security, turn down 61 requests for security, then tell US forces to STAND DOWN when they were ready to kickass on the allapukes & save American lives! Obama & Clinton, thats who. They should be tried for treason & hung. Our entire fkdup gvt must be cleansed asap.

If you don’t have time to read the whole thing — which is primarily a New York Times article by Kenneth Timmerman that Nugent copied and pasted without credit, later editing the post to include Timmerman’s name

I’m not even going to start on the myriad of bullshit and false premises/statements made by Bay in his new film …
I don’t have nearly enough space here to cover that …
Ted, you ignorant, ill informed, prevaricating prick and hate monger …
YOU truly and deservedly are the D-Bag of the week …
wango tango this asshole!
hip is everything salute
NOTE: Didn’t this waste of skin promise to kill himself if Obama won in 2012? …
I guess he couldn’t get the bow and arrow to shoot backwards …
And, Mr. Bay – http://www.politifact.com/embassyattacks/
I am sure you are hard at work making a movie about each of these attacks also … right Mr. Bay?
a few facts for Mr. Bay:
FACT: There is No Evidence That Clinton Personally Signed Off On A Cable Reducing Security in Benghazi. (in fact it was a GOP congress that cut the funding to embassy safety – repeatedly)
FACT: Hillary Clinton Was Not Unaccounted For During The Attacks: She Was In Continuous Contact With Administration Officials.
FACT: The State Department Did Not Watch The Benghazi Attacks Unfold In Real Time.
FACT: Contrary To Conservative Conspiracies, Clinton Missed A Scheduled Benghazi Hearing After being Injured.
FACT: Clinton’s, “What Difference At This Point Does It Make” Comment Was referring To The Administration’s Post Attack Talking Points, Not Tragic Consequences Of Attack.
FACT: Intelligence Community, The Suspected Attackers, And Eyewitnesses All Linked The Inflammatory Anti-Islam Video To The Attacks.

“Threatening the President of the United States is a class E felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871”

word salad by hip is everything
word salad is a “confused or unintelligible mixture of seemingly random words and phrases”, most often used to describe a symptom of a mental disorder. The words may or may not be grammatically correct, but the meaning is confused to the point that the listener cannot extract any meaning from it. from wikipedia

taking a moment to pay tribute to those among us who seem to have a problem answering a simple question …
or who just blather on and on about nothing really, all the while trying desperately to sound intelligent and serious …
generally, while attacking their ‘enemies’ with talking points handed to them by some other idiot who seems to not have a secure handle on things like reality or facts …
or common sense …
or integrity …
the nonsense and drivel that pours forth from the blathering and bloviating pie-holes of these morons is often priceless and would be hilarious if not for the fact that these baggerese and truthiness speakers are usually in some sort of power position in our society …
still, they do deserve to be honored for their attempts at the language …
or, called out for it … (i guess it all depends on how you view it)
you’ve all heard it …
like babs “crazy eyes” bachmann absolutely every time she opens her orifice o’ lies …
or, if yer’ really in a depressed, masochistic, self flagellating mood, head on over to faux noise and catch as many minutes as you can stomach of “faux and friends” …
(a health and safety warning really should come with this one though)
it’s a veritable olympic games of far right talking points and fact free nonsense covered in a deep layer of bullshit and propaganda inspired, vile and bile soaked spewage and fear mongering …
and today’s champion of cheap shots, craziness and crap is …
the queen of drivel herself …
the failin’ palin …
the klondike kardashian …
the half baked alaskan herself …
the one, the only (thank yer’ deity), $i$ter $arah no clue

sarah palin grifter queen by hip is everythingFormer Alaska governor and onetime GOP vice presidential candidate $arah Palin appeared alongside Donald Trump on Tuesday at an Iowa campaign event, just hours after officially endorsing the billionaire real estate mogul for president. She had a lot to say, so we’ll just go ahead and let it speak for itself.

1. “Rock ‘n’ rollers and holy rollers” make the world go round.

“Looking around at all of you, you hard-working Iowa families, you farm families and teachers and teamsters and cops and cooks, you rock ‘n’ rollers and holy rollers. All of you who work so hard, you full-time moms, you with the hands that rock the cradle. You all make the world go round. And now our cause is one.”

2. Obama apparently refers to his enemies as “enemy.”

“Because a weak-kneed capitulator in chief has decided that America will lead from behind. And he who would negotiate deals, with the skills of a community organizer, maybe organizing a neighborhood tea — yeah, well — he deciding that America would apologize and as part of the deal, as the enemy sends a message to the rest of the world that they capture and we kowtow, and we apologize and then we bend over and say, ‘Thank you, enemy.'”

3. No more “pussyfooting around”! And can I get a hallelujah for “the main thing”?

“No more pussyfooting around! Our troops deserve the best! You deserve the best! He is from the private sector, not a politician. Can I get a hallelujah? Where in the private sector you actually have to balance budgets in order to prioritize, to keep the main thing, the main thing — and he knows the main thing of a president is to keep us safe economically and militarily. He knows the main thing and he knows now to lead the charge.”

4. And now, a string of big words.

“Trump’s candidacy has exposed, not just that tragic — that ramifications of the betrayal of a transformation of our country, but, two, he has exposed the complicity on both sides of the aisle that has enabled it, OK?”

5. The GOP establishment is “busted,” and its voters are a word salad.

“But for the GOP establishment to be coming after Donald Trump’s supporters, even, with accusations that are so false, they are so busted, the way that this thing works. We, you, a diverse, dynamic, needed support base, that they would attack. And now, some of them even whispering, they’re ready to throw in for Hillary over Trump, because they can’t afford to see the status quo go. Otherwise, they won’t be able to be slurping off the gravy train that’s been feeding them all these years. They don’t want that to end. Well, then, funny, ha-ha, not funny, but now what they’re doing is wailing, ‘Well, Trump and his trumpeters, well, they’re not conservative enough.’ Oh my goodness gracious. What the heck would the establishment know about conservatism?”

6. Palin enters the free association (or Iggy Azalea freestyle?) portion of her speech.

“How about the rest of us? Right-wingin’, bitter-clingin’, proud clingers of our guns, our God, and our religions and our Constitution. Tell us that we’re not red enough? Yeah, coming from the establishment.”

7. People are wearing political correctness “like a suicide vest.”

“Well, he being the only one who’s been willing, he’s got the guts to wear the issues that need to be spoken about and debated on his sleeve. Where the rest of some of these establishment candidates, they just wanted to duck and hide. They didn’t want to talk about these issues until he brought them up. In fact, they’ve been wearing this political correctness kind of like a suicide vest. And enough is enough.”

8. “Drill, Baby, Drill,” Sarah Palin (Remix feat. Donald Trump)

“So no, we’re not going to chill. In fact, it’s time to drill, baby, drill down and hold these folks accountable.”

9. It’s time to “savage” the status quo.

“The status quo has got to go, otherwise we’re just going to get more of the same. And with their failed agenda, it can’t be salvaged. It must be savaged. And Donald Trump is the right one to do that.”

10. Did she just say “squirmishes”?

“Let me say something really positive about one of those individuals. Rand Paul. I’m going to tell you about that libertarian streak in him that is healthy, because he knows, you only go to war if you’re determined to win the war! And you quit footing the bill for these nations who are oil-rich. We’re paying for, some of their squirmishes [sic], that have been going on for centuries, where they’re fighting each other, and yelling, ‘Allah akbar,’ [sic] calling jihad on each other’s heads forever and ever. Like I said before, let them duke it out and let Allah sort it out.”

11. Politicians are getting high on the least fun kind of “opium.”

“He builds things, he builds big things. Things that touch the sky. Big infrastructure that puts other people to work. He has spent his life looking up and respecting the hard hats and the steel-toed boots and the work ethic that you all have within you. He, being an optimist, passionate about equal opportunity to work. This self-made success of his, you know that he doesn’t get his power, his high, off of opium [OPM] — other people’s money — like a lot of dopes in Washington do. They’re addicted to opium, where they take other people’s money and then their high is getting to redistribute it, right?”

12. These words do not mean what you think they mean.

“And you’re ready to stop the race-baiting and the division based on color and zip code, to unify around the right issues, the issues important to me, or I wouldn’t be endorsing him: pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, strict constitutionality. Those things that are unifying values and their time-tested truths involved. These are unifying values from big cities and tiny towns, from big mountain states and the Big Apple to the big, beautiful heartland that’s in between.” (from Huffpo)

tears of impotent rage–part 9001

gop-tears-impotent-rageThe Pope is visiting Washington, D.C., and President Obama takes him out for an afternoon on the Potomac, cruising on the Presidential yacht, the Sequoia.
They’re admiring the sights when, all of a sudden, the Pope’s hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water.
Secret Service guys start to launch a boat, but President Obama waves them off, saying, “Wait, wait. I’ll take care of this. Don’t worry.”
Obama then steps off the yacht onto the surface of the water and walks out to the Holy Father’s little hat, bends over, picks it up, and then walks back to the yacht and climbs aboard.
He hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence.
The next morning, Faux Noise and the GOP proclaim:
“Obama Can’t Swim!”


Obama Just Got 4 Americans Released From Iran, But Republicans Are Still Criticizing Him
Several Republican presidential candidates criticized the Obama administration’s decision to swap seven Iranian prisoners for The Washington Post’s reporter Jason Rezaian and three other Americans on Saturday.
Some of them, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), accused the administration of not pushing hard enough for the American prisoners’ release when the United States negotiated a deal with Iran last year. A group of 21 senators, led by Rubio and Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry last year to demand the prisoners’ unconditional release. Kerry has said that he repeatedly pushed for the men’s release during negotiations.
On Saturday, Republicans said that Obama should not have given up Iranian prisoners because it made the United States look weak and that the U.S. prisoners should have been released without condition.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has also spoken critically of the Iran deal, similarly said that the United States should not have had to make any concessions to get the Americans released.
“We shouldn’t have to swap prisoners, these folks were taken illegally in violation of international law and they should have been released without condition,” Christie told WHOTV in Iowa. “But you know, the Iranians have treated this president with disrespect for years and he continues to take it. I would not take it as president.”  ***     from huffpo

*** seems to me the Jersey Jerk is just jealous because disrespecting President Obama is the job of Piss Christie and the Greed Over People Party …. And have no fear Chris, you’ll never be president, so no worries about having to have yer’ ass cash the cheques yer mouth keeps writing … go have another donut you loser … someone indict this prick and put everyone outta their misery …

the grifter chronicles – doucherockets over ‘murica

header grifter chroniclesr

so, the 3-ring circus known as the 2016 republican race for a nominee for the highest office in the land has begun in earnest …
and into the fray(ed?) jumps the largest collection of wannabes, used-to-bes and never-will-bes i can remember in my lifetime …
even more so than the 2012 stable o’ doucherockets and asshat clowns was, and I NEVER thought we could top that train wreck …
well I was oh so very wrong there eh? …
we’ve got a herd of motley characters, sleezeballs, douche bags and idiots that look more at home in an episode of america’s stupidest criminals than they do on a debate stage …
and they won’t even let ’em all on the same stage at the same time …
(they say it’s because the left-outs are irrelevant or too unknown or just not performing up to the party’s standards, when we all know it’s actually because they’re not actually bat-shit crazy enough to go as far right as the ass clowns they wanna show off)
think i’m kidding?
okay … grab a chair, fire up the popcorn and injest/inhale/imbibe in whatever gets ya’ ready for this ass clown parade and over the next few days we’ll try to take a quick look at some of the pre contenders …

the grifter chronicles, act 1
first outta the cannon is ted cruz, a man who never met a job/handout he didn’t like (or is that a man  who never met a handjob he didn’t like … I get so confused) … i know that’s a little crass, but this a-hole is the definition of crass, so wtf eh? …
cruz gop outreach 2 by hip is everythinganother good ole’ boy from texas (like  the world needs another one of those in charge of the free world – the last few did soooo well huh?) who can’t make up his mind between killing the government of the good ole’  U S of A or running it …
who’s tits deep in god jocks and religious fanatics (this crowd alone makes me wanna throw up in my mouth more than a little), and holds prayer events with his father who believes that sonny boy is the one true and chosen savior and that the end times are upon us all, all the while surrounding himself with some real winners …
like the preacher who thinks that we should “solve the homosexuality problem” by killing “all the gays” ……
he’s the man o’ gawd who spews shit like Net Neutrality” is Obamacare for the Internet; the Internet should not operate at the speed of government.”
or: Obama just a “social worker” who wants to put ISIS “on expanded Medicaid”
or: After leading the GOP charge to shut down the government, Cruz repeatedly claimed that he had nothing to do with the GOP shutting down the government …
At the 2013 Values Voter Summit, Cruz said Obama was intent on violating the entire Bill of Rights. “You look at our Constitution, you look at our Bill of Rights, this is an administration that seems bound and determined to violate every single one of our Bill or Rights,” he said, adding “I don’t know that they’ve yet violated the Third Amendment, but I expect them to start quartering soldiers in people’s homes soon.” …
or: “Gay marriage” leads to Christianity becoming “hate speech”
or; At an event in New Hampshire last week, Cruz said “the Obama-Clinton foreign policy of leading from behind — the whole world is on fire.” When a little girl replied, “the world is on fire?” Cruz responded by saying, “Yes! Your world is on fire!” …
or: U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms ardently opposed civil rights measures and even tried to block the Senate from approving a federal holiday in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. “It’s every bit as true now as it was then,” Cruz said. “We need 100 more like Jesse Helms in the U.S. Senate.” …
okay, enough of that, if ya’ need any more proof that crazy shit spews freely from this man’s pie hole every time he opens it go to google and type “ted cruz+crazy talk+liar” and you’ll get thousands of hits … he’s been busy folks …
the man doesn’t believe in evolution (we got the bones, we win! Ya’ a-hole) …
he doesn’t believe in government (except, if he can run it)…
he’s a “strict constitutionalist” who wants to amend the constitution so that gay people can never marry and the wail street boys will never have to pay taxes again … and wants to completely ignore that same constitution when it calls into question his eligibility to even run for the office of president …
As well, he’s totally confused about climate change, saying global warming is not supported by data: “You know, back in the ’70s — I remember the ’70s, we were told there was global cooling,” he tells CNN. “And everyone was told global cooling was a really big problem. …
The problem with climate change is there’s never been a day in the history of the world in which the climate is not changing.” …
Plus he wants to ban federal same-sex marriage: “If the citizens of the state of Iowa or the citizens of the state of Texas want to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman … the states have the constitutional authority to do so and the federal government and unelected judges cannot set aside the democratically elected legislature’s reasonable decisions to enact and protect traditional marriage,” Cruz told radio host Jan Mickelson, writes Salon. “If the courts were following the Constitution, we shouldn’t need a new amendment, but they are, as you put it quite rightly, making it up right now and it’s a real danger to our liberty.”
oh ya, let’s not forget that piece of shit rag he calls a book (see: “A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America – more non-sequiters, fanatical ramblings and conspiracy theorist lunacy from the right”) that he released onto an unsuspecting and surely undeserving public last year, which his campaign now insists are not his current views (well a year is a long time  … face plant) …
really peeps??!? … you really want a guy who believes all of the above, who everyone he works with hates, who believes that the end times are upon us and that he has been “chosen” to save all the good rich, straight, white guys who believe just like him, while the rest of us get ‘smited’ by some unseen hand o’ gawd for our satanic/liberal lifestyles and beliefs …

It’s the Thirteenth Annual Rocktivity/DU “You Call This NEWS?” Awards!
by Rocktivity @ du

Thank you, and welcome — welcome to puberty! It’s astounding to think that some of you have children who haven’t been around as long as these awards have! And I would be remiss in not mentioning that once again, we are on the threshold of Hillary’s second attempt to become president.
I’m so happy that we’re not weathering the acrimony DU went through eight years ago that this year’s ceremony is dedicated to all the Democratic Party Presidential candidates. Needless to say, I’m even happier that the GOP clown car has only turbocharged its rhetoric. But it puts the national media in the difficult position of having to choose which candidate’s campaign advertising income to endorse. Maybe that’s why we’re entering our thirteenth year of DU-ers finding stories that are either a little too obvious, outdated, inconvenient, or a combination thereof to come across as actual news. So once again, let’s salute the DU original posters and commenters who weren’t afraid to call a spade a shovel!
Newbies in particular are invited to survey the archives:

conservative idiot sighting


abbottTexas Governor Wants To Amend The Constitution So States Can Ignore The Federal Government
Short of secession, it’s probably the next best thing.
Sam Levine Associate Politics Editor, The Huffington Post

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Friday proposed a series of amendments to the U.S. constitution that would permit states to override the Supreme Court and ignore federal laws.
One of the proposed measures would allow a two-thirds majority of the states to override federal regulations, while another sets the same threshold for overturning decisions by the Supreme Court. The governor also wants to change the Constitution to block Congress from “regulating activity that occurs wholly within one state,” and to require a supermajority of seven Supreme Court votes before a “democratically enacted law” can be overturned.

abbott2Abbott said in a document explaining the proposed changes that they were motivated by federal officials’ disregard for the constitutional limits on their power. Recently, he has been critical of federal actions such as the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage and President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration.
“The Texas Plan is not so much a vision to alter the Constitution as it is a call to restore the rule of our current one. The problem is that we have forgotten what our Constitution means, and with that amnesia, we also have forgotten what it means to be governed by laws instead of men,” Abbott wrote.
Abbott is calling for a constitutional convention to ratify his amendments. A constitutional amendment may be added through a convention called for by two-thirds of state legislatures,
but no amendment has ever been added through that process.


How about this Greg? …
Any state who wants to “Ignore the Federal Government” doesn’t get any money from the Federal Government – you know – for any of their states emergencies. There – all taken care of.
no currency, no military bases – or military protection, no NASA, no federal ANYTHING …
roads, telephones, hospitals, sewers, waterlines, electrical, anything the government had a hand in …
You would have a tough time paying for all that stuff considering you and yer gang o’ fools don’t want to collect taxes either …
No subsidies for highways, airports, and terminate all Amtrak Service at the States borders.
Then, you send Texas a bill for infrastructure, disaster relief, pull out all Federal agencies, NASA etc. If they wont pay, sell the state back to Mexico …
I find it endlessly amusing that the Cletus’ and Billy-Joe_Ray-Bobs are the ones who scream the loudest about “PROTECTIN’ THE CONSTITUTION” right up until they disagree with something that the federal government did, then they’re the first to bring out the matches as they attempt to set the Constitution ablaze …
They memorized the second half of the second amendment, which was the extent of their civics education. Now they think they are Washington crossing the Delaware.
apparently the civil war will never be over … this the main obstacle to American greatness in the 21st century; no real national unity absent a clear and present outside threat; the nation crumbling within …It’s happened to all big republics …
This is why one needs federal government in places to keep the country together …
I am beginning to believe a wall should be built … Around Austin!!!!!
Maybe Abbott should write a letter to the President of Iran … He will tell him how the US government works, just like when the Senators wrote to him …
Fools and idiots, all of ‘em …
just sayin’ …

the Greed Over People gang strikes again

It’s a tired old game …
First, cut taxes on the wealthy and corporations under the false promise to stimulate the economy …
Next, act surprised when the State has budget shortfalls …
Finally, use the prior two steps to accomplish the primary objective … destroy regulations, cut oversight and privatize resources so the Koch’s and others can own or profit from what the people of the State used to own in the public trust …
It is the great Republican swindle, and people keep falling for it …
Have been for 40+ years …
The way to address budget shortfalls is to take away the tax-breaks and get the elitists money flowing into the State Treasury again …
It’s the “make it so small you can drown it in a bathtub” approach that has been the GOP mantra for a generation …
This is what Republicans do and what they have promised the citizens of Michigan …
And what they will do for the nation as a whole at every opportunity …
Flint is just a start. Dirty water, dirty air, filthy food …
It’s the Republican Party’s way to prosperity …

Justice Department Investigating Toxic Tap Water In Flint
High lead levels in Flint’s water could have harmed thousands of city kids.
Arthur Delaney Senior Reporter, The Huffington Post


Carlos Osorio/Associated Press

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) faces ongoing fallout after thousands of local children in Flint were exposed to dangerous levels of lead.
Days after Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) apologized for toxic tap water in the city of Flint and accepted the resignations of multiple state officials, the U.S. Justice Department said it has opened an investigation into what went wrong.
“In an effort to address the concerns of Flint residents, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District is working closely with the EPA on the investigation into the contamination of the city of Flint’s water supply,” Gina Balaya, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Michigan, told HuffPost on Tuesday.
The Michigan chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, which helped expose the poisoning of Flint’s water, was the first to
report the Justice Department investigation, highlighting it as an “unusual step.”
Last week, a task force appointed by Snyder squarely blamed the high lead levels in Flint’s water on the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. The agency failed to address the water’s corrosiveness after
switching the city’s water source to the Flint River as a cost-saving measure in 2014. At the time, Flint was under the authority of an emergency manager appointed by the state of Michigan.
The new water absorbed lead from Flint’s aging pipes, and researchers discovered a corresponding increase of lead levels in the bloodstreams of local children. The MDEQ continued to deny a lead poisoning problem even as evidence mounted last year.
“I want the Flint community to know how very sorry I am that this has happened,” Snyder
said in a statement last week. In that statement, the governor also announced the resignation of MDEQ director Dan Wyant. Flint switched back to Detroit’s water supply in October after high blood lead levels came to light.
Snyder spokeswoman Laura Biehl said Tuesday that the governor’s office would cooperate with the Justice Department.
“We will cooperate fully with any requests from the U.S. Attorney’s Office as it looks into Flint’s water challenges,” Biehl said, noting that the Snyder-appointed task force is still reviewing the water crisis.
Curt Guyette, an investigative reporter with the Michigan ACLU, welcomed the news of the DOJ’s investigation, saying “it means that we’re not gonna have to only rely on a panel appointed by Gov. Snyder to find out what really happened and if laws were violated.”
The Environmental Protection Agency
opened an investigation into Flint’s water situation in November.
Lead is a deadly neurotoxin, and exposure is especially dangerous for children, who may experience stunted growth, behavioral problems and permanently decreased IQs.


Michael Moore, a native son of Flint sums it up beautifully …

Dear Governor Snyder:
Thanks to you, sir, and the premeditated actions of your administrators, you have effectively poisoned, not just some, but apparently ALL of the children in my hometown of Flint, Michigan.
And for that, you have to go to jail.
To poison all the children in an historic American city is no small feat. Even international terrorist organizations haven’t figured out yet how to do something on a magnitude like this.
But you did. Your staff and others knew that the water in the Flint River was poison — but you decided that taking over the city and “cutting costs” to “balance the budget” was more important than the people’s health (not to mention their democratic rights to elect their own leaders.) So you cut off the clean, fresh glacial lake water of Lake Huron that the citizens of Flint (including myself) had been drinking for decades and, instead, made them drink water from the industrial cesspool we call the Flint River — a body of “water” where toxins from a dozen General Motors and DuPont factories have been dumped for over a hundred years. And then you decided to put a chemical in this water to “clean” it — which only ended up stripping the lead off of Flint’s aging water pipes, placing that lead in the water and sending it straight into people’s taps. Your callous — and reckless (btw, “reckless” doesn’t get you a pass; a reckless driver who kills a child, still goes to jail) — decision to do this has now, as revealed by the city’s top medical facility, caused “irreversible brain damage” in Flint’s children, not to mention other bodily damage to all of Flint’s adults. Here’s how bad it is: Even GM won’t let the auto parts they use in building cars touch the Flint water because that water “corrodes” them. This is a company that won’t even fix an ignition switch after they’ve discovered it’s already killed dozens of people. THAT’s how bad the situation is. Even GM thinks you’re the devil.
Maybe you don’t understand the science behind this. Lead, in water — now, bear with me, this involves a science lesson and you belong to the anti-science party, the one that believes there’s not a climate problem and that Adam and Eve rode on dinosaurs 6,000 years ago. Lead is toxic to the human body. There’s no way to fully eliminate it once it’s in your system, and children are the most damaged by it.
By taking away the city’s clean drinking water in order to “cut costs,” and then switching the city’s water supply to Flint River water, you have allowed massively unsafe levels of pollutants and lead into the water that travels in to everyone’s home. Every Flint resident is trapped by this environmental nightmare which you, Governor, have created.
Like any real criminal, when you were confronted with the truth (by the EPA and other leading water experts across America), you denied what you did. Even worse, you decided to mock your accusers and their findings. As I said, I know you don’t like to believe in a lot of science (after all, you used to run Gateway Computers, and that, really, is all anyone needs to know about you), but this time the science has caught up with you — and this time, I hope, it’s going to convict you.
The facts are all there, Mr. Snyder. Every agency involved in this scheme reported directly to you. The children of Flint didn’t have a choice as to whether or not they were going to get to drink clean water. But soon it will be your turn to not have that choice about which water you’ll be drinking. Because by this time next year, if there is an ounce of justice left in this land, the water you’ll be drinking will be served to you from a tap inside Jackson Prison.
I am calling upon my fellow Michiganders — and seekers of justice everywhere — to petition U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, asking her to arrest you for corruption and assault (i.e., the physical assault you committed against the children of Flint when you knowingly poisoned them).
Yesterday, the federal prosecutor in Flint, after many of us had called for months for this action, finally opened up an investigation into the matter. Now we need your arrest, prosecution and conviction.
And who will be cheering on that day when you are fitted with a bright orange jumpsuit? The poor and minority communities of Michigan who’ve endured your dictatorial firing of their mayors and school boards so you could place your business friends in charge of their mostly-black cities. They know you never would have done this to a wealthy white suburb.
I welcome all to look at the appalling facts of this case, which have been reported brilliantly here, here, and especially here by the great Rachel Maddow. Thank you, Rachel, for caring so deeply when the rest of the national television media didn’t.
I’m asking everyone who agrees with me to sign on to this petition and call for your arrest, Governor Snyder. You are not allowed to run amok in my hometown like you have done. The children whom you have poisoned have to endure a life of pain and lower IQs from your actions. You have destroyed a generation of children — and for that, you must pay.
It is time for you to go to prison. Out of mercy, I’ll ask that you have in your cell your own personal Gateway computer.
Sincerely,
Michael Moore
Flint native
Michigan resident and voter

House sends president a bill to repeal Obamacare, defund Planned Parenthood
The House voted Wednesday to repeal key provisions of Obamacare and strip federal funding from Planned Parenthood, sending the bill to the White House and kicking off the 2016 election season with a symbolic action intended to highlight ideological differences between Republicans and Democrats.
The House voted 240-181 to approve the legislation, which is sure to be vetoed by President Obama.


the peeps response … Robert Lee King
62. That’s the number of times the U.S. House of Representatives have written a bill and voted it through, to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare). The Senate also signed off on the bill to avoid a filibuster. This waste of time, is on its way to the president’ desk where, of course it will be vetoed. Making matters worse, they included a provision in the bill that defunds Planned Parenthood for a year. Even if Obama had a senile moment (as so many of our former presidents often did) there is no way in hell he’d sign such a bill into law. So, no matter how you feel about Obama, every one of you should take a moment to think about this. 62 times they’ve wasted our tax dollars on this and knowing beyond a doubt that they would never get past the veto pen. 62 times! Every republican presidential candidate has promised to repeal and replace the A.C.A. Yet none have told anyone how or with what they will replace it. Every republican candidate blames Obama and Hillary for the state of our nation. 62 times! Chew on that a while.

BOOM!

BOOM drop the mike
well put sir …

Donald Trump Tweets Throughout History You’ve Definitely Never Seen

Andy McDonald, The Huffington Post

No one tweets like Donald Trump. As with his Chinese-made clothing line, Trump has his own signature style. Cocky, abrasive — it’s unmistakable. But what you might not have known is that Donald Trump is much older than he appears. 

Here’s are some historical tweets you might have missed if you haven’t been on Twitter from the very beginning.

Authorities Ready To Move Against Oregon Militia ‘The Second They Convert to Islam’

By Carlo Sands on 05/01/2016

Ranching Standoff Protest

Denying they were not taking the seizure of a government building by 150 heavily armed militiamen in Oregon seriously, US authorities said today they were developing detailed plans for the decisive use of force against the Oregon occupiers “the very second it is confirmed they have converted to Islam”.
After a protest over the jailing of two ranchers for arson ended with an armed right-wing anti-government group seizing the Malheur wildlife refuge in Oregon on January 2, authorities announced they would take no immediate action. However, the FBI was quick to tell media this was not a sign they under-estimated the threat.
An FBI spokesperson told The (un)Australian: “Look, we monitor our citizens tweets pretty closely, so we know there’s been a lot of ‘chatter’ claiming we are not taking this armed attack on a federal building seriously simply because the perpetrators are white.
“This is just not true. We are very well aware of the threat posed by anyone, of any colour, who uses violent means to push a political agenda and is Muslim. We can assure the US people we are watching the occupation closely for any telltale signs of terrorist activity, such as evidence that Korans were being smuggling into the building or that the occupiers have begun building a mosque.”
The spokesperson said other triggers to the authorities to move on the armed insurgents included any evidence that their well-stocked armoury included a toy gun of the sort 12-year-Tamir Rice was holding when shot dead by Ohio police in 2014.
