Poor Trump! Picked On Because He’s A White Dude

Trump -DonkeyHoteyRush (Has anybody seen my meds?) Limbaugh has figured out the problem with Donald Trump’s (aka “Herr Rump,” aka “Duh Fuhrer”) presidency.

It isn’t that he’s a bigoted, narcissistic, autocrat wannabe, who has the mental maturity of a five-year-old and totally out of his depth. Nah, nothing like that. The problem is, that he’s WHITE! (Gasp! Who knew? All this time I thought he was orange!)

You see, according to Limbough’s  thinking, (I can’t believe I’m using “Limbaugh” and “thinking” in the same sentence.) Herr Rump wouldn’t have any problems if only he were Black like Obama. (Technical point: Obama’s only half Black, but according to the right-wing mental midgets, if you have more than two drops of blood originating in Africa, you’re Black, baby!)

You all remember how congress and the press bent over backwards to give the “Big O” everything he wanted. Well, Pepperidge Farm, I mean Rush Limbaugh remembers.

[Obama was] the first African-American president. You have everybody falling all over themselves to acknowledge that, to reward that. Obama was going to get everything he wanted in the first year because if anybody opposed it, they were going to be accused of being a racist or bigot or who knows what.

Oh, and all this nonsense about the Trump-Putin connection? According to the “missing meds man,”

It’s absurd. There is no evidence. Zilch. Zero. Nada…Who is driving this business that the Russians hacked the elections? It’s the Democrat [SIC] Party, it’s Hillary, it’s Obama, it’s all those people who just can’t accept they lost.

Was Flynn Forced Out By ‘Devil-Worshiping, Luciferian, Demon-Possessed Maniacs?’

Heronimus BoschWelcome to the weird, warped, wacky world of Rick Wiles. This is a world straight out of the fever dream of John of Patmos or maybe Hieronymus Bosch. The Rickster runs a nut-job radio program called “Trunews.” (“Tru”, it ain’t and as for “news,” it would only be that if he ever got anything right.) 

In the past, he has regaled us with such knee-slappers as,

Yesterday (2/14/17) on his show, the Rickster had another brain fart. (Either that or his tinfoil toupee slipped off again.)

Rick Wiles shares the disturbing mechanics behind the spiritual melee currently in full swing for control of President Trump’s cabinet and the fate of Christianity worldwide. Rick also discusses the mad ramblings echoing through the Democratic party, and reminds the audience of the communist origins behind the revolt for America’s soul.

I’m running low on Emetrol, so I’m just going to cover a portion of the program. If you’ve stocked up, click on the “show” link above. (RDT not responsible for any mental or medical malfunctions resulting from listening to his ravings.)

Here’s a short run-down of some of the bovine meadow muffins from the show:

  • Flynn was dumped because he knew about Hillary’s child molestation ring. (Can you say “Pizzagate.”) Of course, that only existed in the fevered brows of the Tinfoil Turban set, but hey, why let a thoroughly debunked conspiracy go to waste?
  • Devil-worshiping, Luciferian, demon-possessed maniacs” have formed a “criminal cabal [that is] running this nation and much of the world” that allows them to engage in “child trafficking, child molestation, child rape, [and] child murder.
  • Many of the key officials, elected and appointed, and in corporate board rooms and in Hollywood and in New York City, they are part of a global child molestation ring,”
  • Hillary is now “relishing in the fact that they brought down General Flynn because he knows what they are and what they’re doing.”

Here’s a short clip from the program. Hopefully, a small dose won’t be too lethal.

I’d say “stay tuned,” but I’m not that much of a sadist.

Massive Numbers of Sanders Supporters Switching to Clinton

24527808392_a6ef950989_bSome Sanders supporters at the Democratic National Convention have been very vocal in expressing their displeasure that “their man” did not win the nomination. That even extended to booing Bernie, at a rally Monday morning, when he said “We must elect Hillary Clinton!”

In every hard-fought political campaign, there are hard core “true believers” that mentally refuse to believe that they lost. And, if they did, it had to be because of some chicanery and they would NEVER support the winner. As justification, they would claim it was because of the “chicanery” or some personal or political flaw (real or imagined) in the winner. In 2008, there were a number of Hillary supporters that yelled and screamed that they would never support Obama. However, in the end, the vast majority of them did and Obama won the election.

The media loves to emphasize discord and conflict in politics. (It’s good for sales.) And, the so-called “Bernie-bots” gave them plenty of fodder. As is often the case, media blew it out of proportion to the point that it looked like the “bots” were representative of all of Sanders’ supporters. I still see headlines that imply that Hillary is doomed because Bernie’s people won’t support her.

PP_16.07.24_demNomination_report_typesHowever, according to Pew Research, that is NOT the case. Pew ran a number of preference polls throughout the primary season and in comparing them, found some interesting facts.

As expected, both Bernie and Hillary had their consistent backers. In Hillary’s case that amounted to 29% of Democratic and Democratic leaning registered voters. Bernie laid claim to 20% of those Dem and Dem leaning voters. And, as is also expected in a stretched out campaign, 44% vacillated between the candidates. Sometimes they supported Hillary, sometimes they supported Bernie and 7% never could make up their minds.

So far, no big surprises, but here’s one:

Out of those consistent Sanders supporters, 2% are going to sit on their butts in November or vote for minor party candidates like Jill Stein (Green Party), Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party) or Rocky De La Fuente (American Delta Party). Eight percent of Sanders supporters are going to jump to Trump.

And (drum roll please).,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,90% are going to vote for Hillary.

So, what should you do the next time, some die-hard Bernie-bot claims that Hillary is going to lose to Trump in November, because she just can’t win without the support of all those people that voted for Bernie in the primaries?

Just smile. You’re never going to burst their fantasy bubble anyway. So, why try?

Is Debbie Wasserman Schultz Getting Dumped?

It seems that Bernie backers aren’t the only ones fed up with Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s tyrannical rule of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). According to one pro-Hillary senator,

There have been a lot of meetings over the past 48 hours about what color plate do we deliver Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s head on.

Other Hillary-backing senators are worried that she’s too divisive a figure to unify the party in the upcoming general election. Right now, the discussion is about getting rid of her before the Democratic Convention.

On condition of anonymity, a senate aide said,

The question is: Has she become too toxic?

The Hill” reported that one senator stated,

I don’t see how she can continue to the election. How can she open the convention? Sanders supporters would go nuts.

A senior Democratic source told CNN,

There is a lot of sentiment that replacing her would be a good idea. It is being discussed quietly among Democratic senators on the floor, in the cloakroom and in lunches.

Debbie has already been stripped of some of her Convention power. Normally the DNC Chair would appoint all 15 members of the platform committee. This time around, she’s been limited to four. Of the remaining 11 positions, Hillary will fill six and Bernie will fill five.

Whether this is enough is being debated. As a Senior Senate Democratic Aide put it,

There’s a strong sentiment that the current situation is untenable and can only be fixed by her leaving. There’s too much water under the bridge for her to be a neutral arbiter.

Another senator said,

We need to get this figured out and come together, Hillary’s got the nomination. She needs Bernie’s energy. It’s time for her to accommodate. It’s time to pick hard-nosed people to cut through things and figure out a deal.

Debbie does have her defenders. Nancy Pelosi told CNN that,

DNC Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz enjoys the support of Members of the House Democratic Caucus for her leadership in unifying the party and winning in November.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), is backing Debbie.

I think Debbie Wasserman Schultz has done a good job. If you look at her platform committee appointments, she really gave a lot of room to Bernie supporters.

Also, some of the support seemed to have a bit of an anti-Bernie flavor to it. Michael Nutter, a former Mayor of Philadelphia, the host city for the convention told CNN,

This is like someone who comes to your house, says they don’t like the food, your TV is too small and I’m not particularly thrilled with what your kitchen looks like and then walks out complaining. She’s been leading the party, he just became a Democrat and now suddenly believes that he should be in charge.

And, of course, there’s no “Debbie love” on Bernie’s part. Bernie has endorsed Debbie’s opponent in the Florida Democratic primary and has even started fundraising for him.

Bernie’s campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, summed up their take on the matter, telling MSNBC host Steve Kornacki,

It’s been clear there is a pattern of conduct from the beginning of this campaign that has been hostile to Bernie Sanders and his supporters, and really, she’s become a divisive figure in the party.

It probably also doesn’t help her efforts that American Crossroads, a GOP super-PAC, has endorsed Debbie in the primary. The president of American Crossroads, Steve Law, said,

Congresswoman and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has played a critical role over the past several years in the massive Republican gains we have achieved at the state level, in the U.S. House of Representatives, and in the U.S. Senate.

Whether she goes or stays won’t be decided until Hillary and Bernie negotiate a deal to heal the party and discuss what to do with Debbie. President Obama is expected to have a say as well.

Stay tuned!
