Right-Wing Preacher Proclaims Trump Is ‘God’s New Samson’ (AUDIO)

Sansone_distrugge_il_tempio_dei_Filistei_-_GrechettoIn the latest news from the Theocracy of Tinfoil Turbans comes word that Donald Trump, aka “Herr Rump,” aka “Duh Fuhrer,” may indeed be the second coming of Samson.

No, not the circus strongman, this one’s the real deal. The one from the “good book,” Judges 13-15.

Now, the last word I heard was that Herr Rump was the 2nd coming of John the Baptist, or maybe even J.C., himself! At least that’s what ex Assembly of God bible thumper, Tom Horn, told Jim Bakker last month.

Maybe Horn was wrong or maybe Duh Fuhrer has a case of multiple personality disorder, amidst his many other mental maladies.

Anyway, Rick Wyles thinks he’s Samson. No word on who Rick thinks Delilah is this time around.

For those of you who have not had the displeasure of knowing Rick, he’s another troglodyte “Khristian,” as opposed to “Christian.” He’s also the host of the “end times” and survivalist themed radio program, “Trunews.” Despite its name, Trunews is not news and is definitely not true.

I’ve written about Rick a couple times in the past. In May of 2015, Rick predicted death and destruction if SCOTUS legalized gay marriage.

Claiming the Holy Ghost was speaking through him, he said there was fire in the future. The Sacred Spook wasn’t sure if it was rioting, war or a fireball from space, but it was something.

America will be brought to its knees, there will be pain and suffering at a level we’ve never seen in this country. The word that I hear in my spirit is ‘fire.’ I do not know if it refers to riots or looting or war on American soil or a fireball from space. I simply know that a sweeping, consuming fire will come across the United States of America and this country will be charred and burned.

Herr Rump was elected, so maybe he was right on that one.

Then last February, after Justice Scalia bit the big one, Rick claimed he was the victim of a pagan sacrifice.

He broke the news to the world that Obama murdered Scalia as part of Lupercalia. Lupercalia, for those of you not hip to pagan holidays is supposed to avert evil spirits, releasing health and fertility. More than that, this ritual sacrifice also marked the beginning of the country being ruled by our pagan fascist overlords.

Hmm, once again, was he predicting Duh Fuhrer?

This Wednesday (1/25/17) Rick was as happy as a tick gorging on an elephant’s butt.

Friends, listen to me,” he said. “God’s favor is on us. Please, please, please comprehend what is happening. It’s more than a political revolution. This is a spiritual revolution. God’s favor is shining on us. I can’t get out of my mind what Mario Murillo said Monday, ‘Grace is oozing out of Heaven.’ It’s just oozing towards us right now. I’m basking in it. I’m rolling around in it. I’m enjoying it

He went on to explain the cause of his euphoria,

I keep getting this picture that Donald Trump is like this Samson, who has been raised up by God to fight the Philistines and all the Philistines have now turned their attention away from the church, turned their attention away from attacking Christianity, and all of the Philistines are running to Washington to attack Samson. But Samson is strong enough for them. He’s been called. He’s been equipped for this battle. That is his job. That is his assignment. He’s going to beat them down. They will not be able to overtake him. He’s Samson. He was designed by God. He was created for this hour to fight these Philistines.

By “Philistines,” I’m not sure if he was talking about the Women’s March on Washington, the fact-checking press, the LGBT community, some descendants of the original Philistines, or just the majority of Americans in general. He  was a bit vague on the matter.

But, in his “Us Against Them War,” the “Philistines,” whoever they are, are the enemy!

Is Trump the Messiah or Just John the Baptist?

herr-rumpI swear this country is morphing into Bizarro World! Case in point: Monday morning, “end times” prophet and profiteer, Tom Horn, showed up on the “Jim Bakker Show” to claim that Donald Trump is either the Messiah or his forerunner.

Before I get into the fruit of this story, a bit of background on the nuts involved.

Those of you with longer memory spans, may recall Jim Bakker from his days as host of the PTL Club, although his then wife, Tammy Faye, (She of the bouffant hairdo and layer upon layer of makeup.) was more memorable. PTL stood for “Praise The Lord,” although, in Jim’s case, it seemed to stand for “Pass The Loot.”

He also built a Christian theme park, Heritage USA, raising the money through donations. (And diverting $3.4 million into his own wallet.)

In 1987, things rapidly unraveled. It was discovered that he had been paying church secretary, Jessica Hahn, to keep quiet about the time he and a fellow evangelist did the “horizontal mambo” with her after she had declined the honor! Due to the scandal, he quickly resigned from PTL.

Then, in 1988, Bakker was indicted on eight counts of mail fraud, 15 counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy. He was convicted on all 24 counts! He spent the next five years learning the fine points of boulder busting at several Iron Bar Inns. He was released on December 1st, 1994.

He’s now back in business as a televangelist, specializing in the coming apocalypse. Not to worry, Bakker has a store that will sell you all the food you need to survive it. (Of course, if you’re “raptured,” you probably won’t need it.)

Heritage USA closed down in 1989. Tammy Faye Divorced her husband in 1992 and married the man in charge of constructing Heritage USA the following year, after he divorced his wife. She passed away in 2007.

Tom Horn is not so well known as Bakker. (Unless you’re a member of the tinfoil toupee set.)

Horn is an ex Assembly of God bible thumper, turned “End Times” profiteer. He’s a prolific author, with book subjects ranging from extraterrestrials (Nephilim) to Jewish mysticism to the evils of Freemasonry and Catholicism to the Mayan Calendar “End of Days.” (Everybody but him, got it wrong. 2012 was just the start, 2016 is the apex.)

Horn also spreads this manure on his video podcast, Skywatch TV.

He’s HUGE on apocalyptic end times theories. And, he’ll be very happy to sell you everything you need to survive it, from pepper spray to porta potties  at survivormall.com(Once again, if you’re “raptured,” you may be wasting your money.)

Ok, the back has been grounded, on with the show.

On the Jim Baker Show, Horn claimed that Israeli rabbis (At least 12 of them.) have told him that Donald Trump is either the Messiah or the forerunner to same. According to those rabbis, Trump’s name “actually means ‘messiah.’” (Actually, it doesn’t. It’s derived from the early 16th century Middle English word, trumpen, meaning “deceive, cheat.”)

They’re sure of this because Trump is a kingly and warrior-like leader committed to protecting Israel and rebuilding the Temple of Jerusalem. Other clues include a 300 year old prophecy by a Jewish mystic that says the Messiah will come between “Oct 1st, 2016 and September 30th, 2017.” (year 5777 in the Jewish calendar)

Of course, according to those same rabbis, it’s possible that Trump isn’t the real Messiah. Evidently, the “real Messiah” has to be of the Dividic bloodline and Trump may be too Aryan. (He’s of German descent, after all.) Horn stated that the Rabbis are investigating Trump’s bloodline to see if he qualifies.

He may just be a “John the Baptist” type of forerunner. In other words, (Horn’s) Trump is “God’s messenger.” His inauguration will start the count-down to the Messiah’s appearance.

Grab some popcorn and check out the segment:

p.s.: If my ramblings don’t revolt you, check out my FaceBook page (“Grouchy’s Grumbles”) you might just enjoy it. Better yet, you might “like” it.  I’d love it if you did. It’s free (and worth every cent) and almost completely painless (other than the usual bad jokes).

Ann Coulter’s ‘In Trump We Trust’ Book Disaster

CnGb8LdUEAAkQkeThis hasn’t been the best of weeks for Ann Coulter (aka “The Wicked Witch of the NE”).

Oh, it started out just fine. She had a brand new book coming out, entitled “In Trump We Trust.” I’m sure she thought she had another hit, since there are more than enough gullible, low information types (That’s “PC” for stupid.) to send the book up the best seller lists.

The hairball himself, Donald Trump, even tweeted nice things about it.

.@AnnCoulter‘s new book, ‘In Trump We Trust, comes out tomorrow. People are saying it’s terrific – knowing Ann I am sure it is!

(Of course, he hadn’t read it, but details like that never seem to bother him.)

Then the book came out! (And, the snarks started flying.)

First, there was the title, “In Trump We Trust,” in which the orange oligarch replaces Big Daddy.

Ann Coulter’s new book is titled “In Trump We Trust?” Sounds like blasphemy to me.

Not content with mangling that slogan, which only goes back to 1956, (sorry, religious troglodytes) she also takes on “E Pluribus Unum” which goes back to the Continental Congress in 1782. The term, for those of you who slept through Latin class, means “from many, one.”

Well, since that sounds too much like it’s celebrating diversity, Ann changed it to “E Pluribus Awesome.” I’ll skip the fact that the Latin word for awesome is “terribilis.” (Which is a better fit.) What I’m wondering about is “from many what?” Lies? Scams? Lawsuits? Bankruptcies? The list goes on and on.

Ok, enough nits picked about the cover, lets look at the content. Here’s some gems (of the zircon variety):

Trump is like a Shakespearean ‘fool’: he seems crass because he speaks the truth.

We need more narcissists running for public office.

Being crude is an indispensible requirement.

And, of course, the raison d’etre of the book. (For any French class sleepers or “baggers” in the audience, “raison d’etre” means “the most important purpose.” Who says my posts aren’t educational?)

Liberals compulsively demand the importation of foreigners because of their seething hatred of the historic American nation. They won’t be happy until the DAR-eligible population is a tiny minority. Any culture that replaces American culture is an improvement, as far as they are concerned.

And, as for the infallibility of Big Daddy’s stand in:

There’s nothing Trump can do that won’t be forgiven. Except change his immigration policies.

Guess what! Hairball changed his immigration policies. (Or, somebody did and he just read the teleprompter.)

Guess what again! The WWotNE is NOT happy!

At first, in an interview for “The Hill,” she tried to spin it.

It’s just rhetoric but it’s still annoying. I think he panicked and he had to say [it] … I don’t think he is softening. I mean the big thing is the wall.

Later, as the fact sunk in that he had undermined the whole purpose of her book and cost her sales, she took to Twitter. (As twits often do.)

Only part he left out was the “hoops” they’ll have to jump through! Trump:”No citizenship. Let me go a step further—they’ll pay back-taxes”

Trump: “they have to pay taxes, there’s no amnesty” [Pro Tip: “Back taxes” means we pay illegals $30k apiece in EITC.}

It’s not “amnesty.” It’s “comprehensive immigration reform”!!!! Trump: “they have to pay taxes, there’s no amnesty.”

Well, if it’s “hard,” then nevermind. Trump: “… to take a person who’s been here for 15 or 20 years ….It’s a very, very hard thing.”

Btw, the book is available on Amazon, already marked down 40%.

Will the Republican House Elect the Next President?

It’s like déjà vu all over again. – Yogi Berra

4393514042_ff5e669e66_bI’d say Glenn (Conspiracies-R-Me) Beck is back, but unfortunately, he never seems to go away.

As many of you may know, Beck is not a big fanboy of The DONALD (aka “hairball”). He’s much more of a Cruz creep. After Cruzy abandoned his presidential wannabe quest until next cycle and left Glenn without a jackass in the race, Beck has been trying desperately to find a way to handicap the “orange oligarch.”

Well, by jinkies, Beck thinks he’s found a way. (My apologies for using “Beck” and “thinks” in the same sentence.) Now, I know the “never Trump” movement has tried and failed miserably to keep hairball from winning the nomination, but Glenn has a much bigger goal. He wants to stop him from winning the general election.

He wants a true blue (or is that “true red?”) conservative candidate to steal the election from dapper Donald. (More on that in a moment.)

Of course, there are a few minor(?) obstacles to overcome. You can find a list of them HERE. However, to save you the ordeal of having to click a link, I’ll summarize.

  • It costs a hell of a lot of money to get on the ballot in all 50 states.
  • Even if you had the Benjamins, it’s too late to get on the ballot of a lot of states.
  • Even if you had the Benjamins and a handy, dandy time machine to get you on the ballot in all 50 states, there’s virtually no reality in which you could win 270 electoral votes.
  • The only person who would benefit, would be Hillary, since you’d be splitting the conservative base.

Looks like an intractable problem, doesn’t it? Au contraire mon ami!

Since it would be impossible for Beck’s boy (Well, you knew his choice isn’t going to be female, didn’t you?) to reach 270. The trick is to make sure nobody else makes 270, so that the election is decided by the Republican controlled House of Reps.

…and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President… U.S. Constitution, Article II, section 1, clause 3

This has actually happened a couple of times. Once, after the election of 1800, the House decided that Tom Jefferson won over John Adams. Jefferson also got the most votes in the election, 41,300 – 26,952. After the 1824 election, the House declared John Q. Adams the victor. This, despite the fact that Andy Jackson got the most votes, 151,271 – 113,122.

I’m not gonna comment on the SCOTUS decided election of 2000.

The first step in the process was to find a catchy name for his plan. Beck, or one of his minions decided to call it “Bailout2016.” I have to admit, I was a bit surprised at the choice. I thought bailouts were anathema to conservatives. (Note to any “baggers” reading this: “anathema” means something or someone that one vehemently* dislikes.) *strongly

Step two is to provide an alternative to the hairy one. According to #Bailout2016’s website, there are certain criteria to be met;

  1. You need someone who is not supporting Trump. (That eliminates 36 current and 8 former senators, 163 members of the House, 19 current and 12 former governors.)
  2. You need someone who is not a slave to the party. (See #1)
  3. You need someone who has an easy enough path to win these states and won’t need the help of conventional money and party resources. Perhaps someone self-funding? Or someone with an unfair advantage via identity politics or home state? (Willie, want to make another run?)
  4. You need someone who will actually do it. (Has a bullet-proof ego.)
  5. You need someone that doesn’t care about his future in Republican circles. (Because, he will have none.)
  6. And perhaps, most difficult, you need someone who is very well liked by the incoming members of the House of Representatives. (A Koch Bros lobbyist, perhaps?)

And, of course, someone who is an actual conservative (by Glenn’s definition, anyway).

Step three is where to spend your limited bucks to the greatest effect. Here again, there are criteria.

  1. Avoid “Blue States.” (Hillary is going to win there anyway so it’s just wasted money.)
  2. Avoid “Purple States.” (Don’t hand those to Clinton, wrapped up in a pretty red ribbon.)
  3. Target states that hairball lost. (They didn’t like him anyway, so it makes the job easier.)
  4. Eliminate all states with ballot deadlines that come before mid-August. (That eliminates all the states, except Utah, Idaho and Wyoming, with a total of 13 electoral votes.)
  5. Since 13 electoral votes aren’t gonna do diddly, some borderline states need to be added. According to Bailout2016, those states are: North Dakota, Montana, Louisiana and Kentucky. That brings the electoral total up to a whopping 35. (I never said this plan wasn’t stupid, cause it is.)

The next step is to find a sucker….er, candidate to run. The aforementioned website listed several possibilities, ranging from Willie to “Little” Dick Cheney. (Despite the fact that Little Dick came out for hairball.) They haven’t actually got one yet. For a bit, it looked like they settled on right-wingnut writer Brad Thor. However, the latest word is that he has declined the honor.

Are there problems with this grand scheme? Oh, lawdy, way too many to count. Let me concentrate on the big two.

Number one: This has been tried before, with disastrous results.

Back in 1948, Southern Democrats stormed out of the Democratic National Convention, because the Dems had the audacity to insert a civil rights plank in their platform. The apostate Democrats formed the States Rights Democratic Party (aka “Dixiecrat Party”).

They then attempted to usurp the regular Democratic ticket on the southern state ballots, hoping to force the election into the House of Representatives, where they thought they’d get their way. To this end they did manage to replace the Democratic ticket in South Carolina and Mississippi (surprise, surprise) as well as Alabama and Louisiana. In the rest of the south, they had to run as a 3rd party (which they were).

Unfortunately for them (fortunately for the rest of us) their grand plan fizzled. They ended up getting 1,175,930 votes (2.4%) and carrying Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina, which along with an electoral vote in Tennessee gave them a grand total of 39. By comparison, the Republican ticket (Tom Dewey and Earl Warren) got 21,991,292 votes (45.1%), carried 14 states and received 189 electoral votes. Harry Truman got 24,179,347 votes (49.6%), carried 30 states and received 303 electoral votes.

Number two: This whole scheme presupposes that Hillary won’t get more than 260 electoral votes.

According to the latest poll, Hillary is leading hairball by 15 points. And yes, polls are volatile. However, except for a few outlier polls, she has maintained a consistent lead throughout this cycle. For that to change, hairball will have to pull out the old etch-a-sketch and so far he has shown absolutely no inclination to do anything remotely resembling that.

Stay tuned!

Was Trump University A $40 Million Dollar Fraud? (VIDEO)

Donald_Trump_by_Gage_Skidmore_2Donald Trump (aka “The DONALD”; aka “His Hairness: aka “hairball”) is running for CEO of the CSA (Corporate States of America.) In his campaign, he keeps bragging about his YUUUGE fortune and his “Trump Class” business acumen. Since political claims are fair game, I did some checking. Turns out, he’s a lousy businessman. In my research, I’ve run across 19 major business FAILS in the last three decades. The one that is currently garnering the most attention, was his much “Trump”eted Trump University.

Trump University was founded in 2005. The “University” part of the name was a stretch of extreme magnitude. Not only wasn’t it a university, by it’s very definition, it wasn’t even a college offering degrees or even licensed as a school. The New York State Department of Education said that it was “misleading and even illegal” to call itself a university. What it was, was a series of real estate seminars, held in various hotel ballrooms around the country.

The advertising for Trump U included a number of claims:

  • consumers would learn “everything [they]need[ed]to know” to become successful real estate investors; Attendees at the three day seminars discovered, that despite claims that vital secrets to would be disclosed, to get those really secret secrets it was going to cost them a lot more and failure to pay meant failure. (Can you say, “bait & switch?”)
  • consumers would quickly recoup their investment by doing real estate deals, with some instructors claiming that consumers would earn tens of thousands of dollars within thirty days; (Somehow, that never seemed to happen.)
  • instructors were “handpicked” by Donald Trump; In fact, several instructors came from other fields and some of those that did have a real estate background became instructors after going bankrupt with their own investments. And, it turns out, The DONALD didn’t do any of the “hand picking.” That job was pushed off onto subordinates.
  • consumers would be taught Donald Trump’s very own real estate strategies and techniques; The curriculum wasn’t developed by Trump. It was developed by a company that creates material for motivational speakers.
  • consumers would receive access to private sources of financing (“hard money lenders”); Actually, instructors provided handouts with scripted talking points for students to use in their phone calls with credit card companies, explicitly encouraging people to falsify their current income. (Last time I checked, credit card companies weren’t exactly “private sources of financing.”)
  • the three-day seminar would include a year-long “Apprenticeship Support” program. Never happened!

Tuition ran from $1,495 for a three day seminar, to $35,000 for a “Trump Elite” membership, that included personal advice from His Hairness, himself. (Which he never provided.) In fact, he never even visited any Trump U classes. (In fairness, student’s did get to pose with a cardboard cutout of The DONALD.) All the students got for their $1,495 was a generic seminar and salesmen pressuring them to buy additional (and much more expensive) courses.

5,000 people paid Trump U around $40 million. And, while Trump U claimed it was formed as a philanthropic project and Trump would not financially benefit, his cut of that $40 million amounted to $5 million dollars.

According to NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who is currently bringing suit,

Mr. Trump used his celebrity status and personally appeared in commercials making false promises to convince people to spend tens of thousands of dollars they couldn’t afford on lessons they never got.

The NY attorney general is currently seeking “full restitution for the more than 5,000 consumers nationwide who were defrauded of over $40 million in the scheme, disgorgement of profits, as well as costs and penalties and injunctive relief prohibiting these types of illegal practices going forward.”

The AG’s lawsuit claims “Trump University also committed violations of federal consumer protection law.” It also accuses Trump U of “deceptive acts and practices,” false advertising, “operating an unlicensed private school,” refusing to provide mandated refunds and several other no-nos!

In the “playbooks” that were released by the trial judge, phone recruiters were given detailed instructions including the background music to be used. (“For the Love of Money” by the O’Jays.) Among the other instructions,

The words ‘I noticed’ have a powerful subconscious effect on people because they send a subliminal message to them that they stood out in the crowd, that they are attractive or charismatic or that they impressed you. People love recognition and attention.

You don’t sell products, benefits or solutions — you sell feelings. You may begin with some small-talk to establish rapport but do not let them take control of the conversation. You must be very aggressive during these conversations to in order to push them out of their comfort zones.

Money is never a reason for not enrolling in Trump University; if they really believe in you and your product, they will find the money.

Trump, of course, is responding to the trial with his usual demeanor: that of a seven year-old, screaming insults on the playground. Here are a couple of examples tweeted by the twit.

I have a judge in the Trump University civil case, Gonzalo Curiel (San Diego), who is very unfair. An Obama pick. Totally biased-hates Trump.

I should have easily won the Trump University case on summary judgement but have a judge, Gonzalo Curiel, who is totally biased against me.

Then, last Friday at a rally in San Diego, hairball said,

I have a judge who is a hater of Donald Trump, a hater. He’s a hater. The judge, who happens to be, we believe, Mexican, which is great. I think that’s fine.

The judge was born in Indiana.

Trump’s lawyers have managed to get the fraud trial postponed until after the election. That raises the possibility of a sitting president having to testify under oath in court as to whether he perpetrated a $40 million dollar fraud.

On May 32, 2010, Trump University morphed into the Trump Entrepreneur Initiative. He got sued over that one too. In a New York trial, he was found personally liable for running an unlicensed school and ordered to pay restitution to approximately 800 students suckers.

Sappy Sarah Palin Says Paul Ryan Needs To Be ‘Cantored’

Photo Credit: CNN screen shot

Photo Credit: CNN screen shot

Mama Grisly (And no, that’s not a misspelling!) is pissed off. It seems that the most powerful Regressive in D.C., Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, has the temerity not to endorse hairball as presidential wannabe. And, by shuckins, she’s gonna do something about that.

For starters, the half-term, half-wit went on Jake Tapper’s “State of the Union” to bad mouth the Speaker.

I think Paul Ryan is soon to be ‘Cantored,’ as in Eric Cantor. His political career is over but for a miracle because he has so disrespected the will of the people, and as the leader of the GOP, the convention, certainly he is to remain neutral, and for him to already come out and say who he will not support is not a wise decision of his.

She went on to complain that Ryan, like the rest of the establishment, is out-of-touch.

When Tapper explained that Ryan had said some of T-rump’s policies and his nasty remarks had caused him to pause, Sappy Sarah had a ready response,

Those concerns are relatively speaking, Jake, they’re superficial, talking about tone and certain verbiage that is chosen over what perhaps Paul Ryan or somebody would have chosen to articulate. Who cares?

(I don’t know. Maybe the American electorate?)

Of course, Sarah knows Ryan’s real motive. He was trying to sabotage His Hairness because if THE DONALD wins, it “kind of screws his [Ryan’s] chances for the 2020 presidential bid.

Palin also said that she would eagerly endorse and fight for Ryan’s primary opponent. (Unless, of course, she quits half way through the Wisconsin primary season.)

Sarah Palin Don’t Love Teddy Cruz No More

Palin & PigOnce upon a time Sarah and Teddy were soulmates. Palin was even credited (by Palin) with making Teddy win that Texas senate seat he wanted soooo much. But, as that old Monkee’s tune goes, “That was then, this is now.” Old flames flicker out and new bonfires begin. The half-wit, half-term gubenor saw greener pastures (probably because of all the cow pies strewn about) down New York way and became a Trump frump.

When she joined hairball’s harem, she dropped a teensy weensy little hint that she’d just LOVE to be part of the vienna sausage’s administration in case Hell froze over and he was actually elected. She was especially excited about heading up the Energy Department so she could kill it and go home. (You may have noticed that silly Sarah doesn’t like to hold a job too long.) Hairball responded that he would LOVE to have Sarah. Of course, Politifact’s “Liar of the Year” is none other than the hairy one, so maybe Sarah shouldn’t hold her breath too long. (On the other hand, maybe she should.)

I’m sure that in Palin’s fertile little fantasy factory, (The one housed between her ears.) she was convinced that she could do for hairball, what she did for Cruzy.  However, despite her endorsement, she couldn’t even swing her home state as The DONALD came in 2nd to Cruzy. (By his own definition, that makes the hairy one a LOSER!)Donald-Trump-mocked-over-no-one-remembers-second-place-tweet-after-Iowa-caucus-defeat-On-Youtube Flash forward to today. (Well, a couple of days ago, actually. March 10th to be exact.) Sarah (or her ghost writer) went ballistic on Facebook. It seems Cruzy made a truthful statement for once when he said,

Donald does well with voters who have relatively low information, who are not that engaged and who are angry and they see him as an angry voice.

Of course, Cruzy should have included his own base in that comment, but while Cruzy is many things, (most of them pretty bad) he is NOT stupid.

For “stupid,” with a dash of “catty,” lets switch back to Sarah and the FB post.

The arrogance of career politicians is something at which the rest of us chuckle, but Cruz’s latest dig strays from humorous into downright nasty. Cruz is right, though – independent, America-first, commonsense conservatives supporting Donald Trump ARE “low information” when it comes to having any information on Cruz’s ability to expand the conservative movement, beat Hillary Clinton, unify and lead the nation.

She goes on to blast him for his lack of achievement in his half-term. (You have to admit, Sarah is well versed in lack of achievement in a half-term.) She then accuses him for “inviting more illegal aliens to flood our porous borders by enticing families with benefits and literal gifts (like teddy bears and soccer balls)?”

Palin is also angry with Cruzy’s surrogate, Glenn (Conspiracies-R-Me) Beck. Seems Beck had the temerity to say what a lot of others are saying,

I believe Trump, whether he knows it or not, is grooming brown shirts.

Palin or her ghost writer, there are a lot of big (over four letters) words in the post, goes on to blast her former bff for crony capitalism, his “campaign’s shenanigans” and his “holier-than-thou narcissism.

There is a lot more venom in there, but don’t take my word for it. Check out the post (and then stay for the comments.)

Donald Trump, David Duke And Antisemitism

CNR_aoNUYAA477nIs Donald Trump antisemitic? Or is he so ignorant or unobservant that he reverts to stereotypes? Trump is a bigoted racist in speech and deed, there is no question about that. The only question is whether that extends to antisemitism.

The hairball has made some stereotypical comments about Jews, such as these from his December speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition.

Stupidly, you want to give money. …You’re not going to support me because I don’t want your money….I’m a negotiator, like you folks….Is there anyone in this room who doesn’t negotiate deals? Probably more than any room I’ve ever spoken.

However, I would chalk that up more to insensitivity than bigotry.

Also, he has a daughter, Ivanka, who converted to Judaism in 2009. From all accounts, Ivanka is very faithful in following Jewish precepts. And, from all accounts, he’s proud of her.

And, there are statements like this one from January of this year.

I will be very good to Israel. People know that. I have so many friends from Israel. I have won so many awards from Israel. I was even the grand marshal for the Israeli Day Parade a few years ago. So I will back Israel.

Of course, this is the same man that claims Hispanics and Black-Americans love him and will support him at the polls. (So far, I haven’t seen very much evidence of that.)

He does have a bit of a problem with Jewish Zionists. Or rather they have a problem with him. It seems he is not a member of the “Israel can do no wrong” crowd. At the aforementioned Republican Jewish Coalition speech, he suggested that Israelis and Palestinians were equally culpable for the collapse of the peace process. That comment drew quite a few boos from the crowd. He also cautioned against taking hard stands prior to negotiations.

You can’t go in with the attitude ‘we’re gonna shove it down your,’ you’ve got to go in and get it and do and do it nicely, so that everybody’s happy.

Despite what some extremists would like you to believe, taking a more neutral stand on some Israeli issues is not the same as being antisemitic.

That hasn’t stopped other extremist bigots from throwing Jews into the “them” category in the “us vs them” mindset.

And, speaking of those extremists, meet David Duke.

For those of you who weren’t around then or have short attention spans, David is a former member of the Louisiana House of Representatives (1989-92) as well as a candidate for President in 1988 & 1992, Louisiana Senator in 1990 & 1996, Louisiana Governor in 1991 and U.S House in 1999.

He’s also a former Grand Wizard of the KKKK (Knights of the Ku Klux Klan). In 1980, David dumped his robes, put on a suit and formed the NAAWP (National Association for the Advancement of White People). In 2005 he received an honorary PhD from the antisemitic Ukrainian Interregional Academy of Personnel Management (MAUP), an institution that has been described by the Anti-Defamation League as a “University of Hate

Trump has claimed that he didn’t know who Duke was. However, in 2000, when the DONALD was considering a presidential wannabe run as a Reform Party candidate, he decided not to, because he didn’t want to be associated with Pat Buchanan and his supporter, David Duke. At the time he knew enough to call Duke “a bigot, a racist, a problem.”

Times have changed and now that the hairball’s fan base consists of a large number of white supremacists, Duke has climbed on The DONALD’s bozo wagon. A few days ago, on his radio program, Duke warned his followers not to vote for Trump’s opponents.

Voting for these people, voting against Donald Trump, at this point, is really treason to your heritage.

Then on Monday, he explained that if ‘Murica was to survive “Zionists and the Jewish tribal extremists,” Trump must be elected.

We must understand that we are now in a struggle for the survival of European mankind. We must never mince our words about that. We are going down in numbers, all over the world. Mass immigration is going to completely remake our countries, our politics, our values, our religious beliefs, everything in which we identify with; everything and every value we have and the most critical issue facing the United States of America is whether or not we are going to remain an overwhelmingly European nation with the values of western Christian civilization or whether we’re going to become some sort of Third World nation and whether or not we’re going to be continued to be robbed and exploited and oppressed by the ultimate ethnic supremacists, of course, we’re talking about the Zionists and the Jewish tribal extremists.
There is a possible cause for Duke’s statement that has nothing to do with whether Trump is antisemitic. Duke goes on to say,
It’s obvious now to everybody. The top seven Super PACs of Hillary Clinton are all Jewish Zionists. No wonder she’s always supported these insane wars for Israel in the Middle East orchestrated by neocons for the interests of Israel rather than America. We have the same thing going on with the Republican Party today. The only person who has stepped out of that agenda has been Donald Trump .
Duke also commented favorably about Hairball’s stand on “mass immigration(Code for “non-Europeans.) and “the international bankers.” (“International bankers,” of course, being code for “Damn Jews”) In closing, he admonished his listeners that,
It’s very, very important that he wins this election for both the Republican nomination – and I think it’s important for him to win the presidency of the United States.
Stay tuned.

The Year In Outrageous Regressive Stupidity

JindalStupidPartyThe following are just a brief sample of the idiotic oral farts emanated by Regressives this year.

January

I think the numbers that have been thrown around as to the frequency with which rape and sexual assault occurs have come into question, and have been debunked in a of number platforms. I think it’s a huge exaggeration, a reckless exaggeration of what actual rape statistics are or what actual sexual assault statistics are. – “Princeton Mom” Susan Patton (1/6/15)

 

I’ve heard from folks here [in London] that there are neighbourhoods where women don’t feel comfortable going in without veils. That’s wrong. We all know that there are neighbourhoods where police are less likely to go into. I think that the radical Left absolutely wants to pretend like this problem is not here. Pretending it’s not here won’t make it go away. – Bobby Jindal – (1/19/15)

 

February

Socrates trained Plato in on a rock and then Plato trained in Aristotle roughly speaking on a rock. So, huge funding is not necessary to achieve the greatest minds and the greatest intellects in history. – Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) (2/13/15)

March

Cocaine is the product of a vegetable, alcohol is the product of a vegetable, marijuana is a vegetable. And yet, people are enslaved to vegetables…but God Almighty can deliver you from the bondage of your addiction. Your slavery to vegetables, he can set you free. – Pat Robertson (3/2/15)

fnVj2oB

Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they’re gay. – Ben Carson (3/4/15)

 

April

Despite the fact that California has suffered from droughts for millennia, liberal environmentalists have prevented the building of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades during a period in which California’s population has doubled. – Carly Florina (4/6/15)

 

May

If I’m president of the United States and you’re thinking about joining al-Qaeda or ISIL [the Islamic State], I’m not gonna call a judge. I’m gonna call a drone and we will kill you. – Lindsey Graham (5/16/15)

 

June

When people make clear that they are going to commit murder or genocide, how long do you have to wait before it is okay to stop them? Well, the President has made clear it may be time to move out of the way so that these Palestinians that want to obliterate Israel can have their will. – Louie Gohmert (6/4/15)

July

I would like to be the head of Donald Trump’s Homeland Security…I could get it all done before breakfast…I could kind of guess who the criminals are gong to be at least 50 percent of the time. People who don’t speak English. – Ann Coulter (7/24/15)

 

This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. – Mike Huckabee (7/25/15)

 

August

I was at the border last week. Border Patrol, people that I deal with, that I talk to, they say this is what’s happening. Because our leaders are stupid. Our politicians are stupid. And the Mexican government is much smarter, much sharper, much more cunning. And they send the bad ones over because they don’t want to pay for them. They don’t want to take care of them. – Donald Trump (8/6/15)

 

September

I’d get rid of [the Energy Department]. And I’d let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. “If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be … really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge. – Sarah Palin (9/6/15)

 

Only in an Orwellian Obama world full of sprinkly fairy dust blown from atop a unicorn as he’s peeking through a really pretty pink kaleidoscope would he ever see victory or safety for America or Israel in this treaty. [On the Iranian nuclear deal] – Sarah Palin (9/9/15)

 

As regards Planned Parenthood, anyone who has watched this videotape, I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, it’s heart beating, it’s legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain. – Carly Florina (9/16/15)

 

One thing I know as it relates to my brother. He kept us safe! John Elias Bush – 9/16/15)

Interestingly enough, this [evolution theory] is a relatively modern science concept. Before Darwin came along, it wasn’t.Ben Carson (9/25/15)

October

Racism exists because we have a sin problem in America, not a skin problem.Mike Huckabee (10/13/15)

I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed.Ben Carson (10/15/15)

00s5

November

I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me. – Donald Trump (11/12/15)

 

December

There are those who contend that it does not benefit African-Americans to — to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less-advanced school, a less — a slower track school where they do well. – SCOTUS Justice Antonin Scalia (12/9/15)

 

And, the winner is:

PolitiFact has been documenting Trump’s statements on our Truth-O-Meter, where we’ve rated 76 percent of them Mostly False, False or Pants on Fire, out of 77 statements checked. No other politician has as many statements rated so far down on the dial.

In considering our annual Lie of the Year, we found our only real contenders were Trump’s — his various statements also led our Readers’ Poll. But it was hard to single one out from the others. So we have rolled them into one big trophy.

To the candidate who says he’s all about winning, PolitiFact designates the many campaign misstatements of Donald Trump as our 2015 Lie of the Year.”

Silly Sarah Palin On CBS Sunday = Outrageous Hilarity! (VIDEOS)

Palin on CBS

Sarah Palin, Caribou-boo Barbie herself, came back to CBS for an interview with Tracy Smith. Hilarity ensued!

You might remember that time back in 2008 when she showed up for an interview with Katie Couric. It was an absolute disaster!

Couric: “When it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this, to stay informed and to understand the world?
Palin: “I’ve read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media -”
Couric: “But like, which ones specifically? I’m curious that you -”
Palin: “Um, all of ’em, any of ’em that, um, have, have been in front of me over all these years. Um, I have —
Couric: “Can you name a few?”
Palin: “I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news. Alaska isn’t a foreign country, where it’s kinda suggested, it seems like, ‘Wow, how could you keep in touch with the rest of Washington D.C. may be thinking and doing when you live up in Alaska?

Needless to say, that came up in her latest interview. Sister Sarah admitted she gave a “crappy answer.” (Gee, it’s only taken her seven years to figure that out.)

Sure, yeah. I had a crappy answer. But it was a fair question. I didn’t like, though, the way that, forever then in these seven years, that interview has kind of been stamped on my forehead as, ‘she’s an idiot. I just think, in the context of the whole ball of wax that day — or two days — of an interview and editing, it wasn’t real fun.

Several other subjects came up in her interview:

ON BRISTOL’S SEX LIFE:

Smith: You mentioned that one of your disappointments this year was Bristol’s wedding falling through…That can’t be how you saw this playing out — unmarried and pregnant again?…Of course, there are those who say, ‘Come on, this goes against everything you stand for.’

Palin: Well, the cool thing about puttin’ your faith in God is, He certainly is a God of second chances, and third, and fourth, and fifth chances. I screw up all the time.

(No mention of “Just say NO,” I notice. Nor, of the bunch of bucks Bristol was paid for hypocritically pushing the abstinence nonsense.)

ON BERNIE SANDERS:

He really does remind me of one of my uncles. And, you know, you hear that, that he’s like the uncle who maybe lives in your attic and … comes down once in a while to entertain at a party. So, I get a kick out of him because he, too, is candid, right?

(Of course, Bernie makes sense when he’s candid. That’s hardly ever said of the Half-Baked Alaskan.)

ON HER FAVORITE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:

Right now, I would say that fighter is Donald Trump, because he’s got nothin’ to lose. He doesn’t have to be bought or sold, obviously, especially when it comes to contributions. He is his own man.

(I guess His Hairness forgot to tell her that he was looking for campaign donors.)

ON HER OWN POLITICAL FUTURE:

Smith: You’re willing to run again?

Palin: I’d be willing. That’s a good way to put it.

She’d already told CNN’s Jake Tapper that she’d like to head up the Energy Department.

I’d get rid of [the Energy Department]. And I’d let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. “If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be … really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge.

That way, she wouldn’t have to stick around very long. (She seems to tire easily doing anything but self promotion.)
