List of Trump’s stupidity

Trump has a whole political party eating out of his hand. They must circle the wagons around this orange alien. This orange slime ball goes to California and tells his can base that there is no drought. Then the Orange alien at another speaking engagement expended 12 minutes raging about the “Mexican” judge on his “Trump University” case in Federal court. Yep, old fat guy is bad mouthing a Judge.

Thanks to the internet we can go to a daily accounting of the current stupidity out of Trump’s mouth. Plus we can read a factual review of exactly how very stupid Trump is on a daily basis. He opens his mouth and we can clearly hear (or read) that this East coast bully has no filter – he talks before he thinks.

Is Sanders working for Trump?

That was the headline on the email Mother Jones magazine sent last night.

A talk show host in California asked Sanders if he had ever worked at real job. Sanders replied th was 1) a mayor,  2) elected to the House of Representatives, 3) elected as Senator. Sanders refused to answer the question.

Sanders has had an easy time – fans falling at his feet. When he was asked the hard questions about his grandiose plans, he failed to show any knowledge of the democratic system. Sort of like the non answers Trump gives.

Here’s a link to a geek website that uses facts to explain how the Democratic primary was not rigged against him.
http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-system-isnt-rigged-against-sanders/

The article begins with details of the Washington State primary that Clinton won. Large turnouts and Clinton wins.

The news that the Mother Jones email referenced was the almost debate with Sanders that Trump backed out of. The facts are lining up
Sanders is helping Trump more than the Democrats.

That grumpy old white guy has something wrong in his head – and so does that mob of followers.

Bernie is out for Bernie. Just like Trump is out for Trump.

Clinton wins WA Primary

This is the real primary with paper ballots and every ballot is counted.

The questionable caucus was held last February. That caucus was a farce. No numbers from that lying mess are believable.

In 2008 I witnessed the Obama-bots bring in bus loads of ringers and use trained in group dynamics methods to manipulate caucus attendees. I know what was happening. My MA is in group dynamics. It is unethical to use mind manipulating tricks the way those creeps did in 2008.

Seeing the huge difference in the caucus “totals” and the real, authentic primary vote is proof of bought off party members – this time in 2016 – grumpy Sanders bought the vote. Pure – he is not.

Now I am hoping California Democratic voters will send Sanders a go to he’ll message in June.
WA PRIMARY VOTE
Total

53.63%
Hillary Clinton

Bernie Sanders

Actually, we must be clear: The system was rigged Bernie’s favor. 

Proof one: Hillary won the primary in Washington state. Unfortunately, the primary is non-binding. The delegates are based on the caucuses, which the BernieBullies were able to game — he got nearly 73 percent of the caucus votes to Hillary’s 27 percent. 

Proof two: Nebraska. Same story. Clinton won a non-binding primary, 61-39. But she lost the caucus, 58-42.

Cannonfire blog – thank you for the proof.

 

Mobs & Bernie

Why should Bernie Sanders be defeated overwhelming in the up coming primaries?

Here are 50 righteous reasons.
My reason  number 51 – we  need a feminist like Canada’s Justin Trudeau, not one more white guy who is a cult leader. Violence follows Bernie – virtual online violence, death threats.

“Conscientious Objector” and the SDA

Why Ben Carson is a dangerous choice for the world – part two of into the world of the SDA.

The SDA church has a history of supporting the war effort but not carrying arms to use offensively against the enemy. Desmond T. Ross joined the Army as a Conscientious Objector during WWII, he supported the war as a non-combatant medic in the role he saved lives and was awarded the metal of Honor by President Truman. Wikipedia lists two more non combatant Metal of Honor recipients – Thomas W. Bennett and Joseph G. LaPointe. Both of these men were Baptists.

During the Vietnam war era most of the SDA college age men used various deferments to avoid the draft. The Young men were encouraged to request Conscientious Objector status. I know that many of the collage age draftees from the SDA college system served as non combatants, in country some played in the General’s personal Army Band, others worked as paper pushers or medics. Some decided to carry weapons when faced with the realities of war.

As a kid I was indoctrinate into the “render unto the government” – Desmond Does example. This was rather mind blowing on one level – since I was a military brat, living on a U.S. Naval Base, my dad off fighting the cold war. He was armed and trained as a sharp shooter, by his days hunting to feed his family during the Depression. His score shooting clay pigeons near the end of his career was 99 out of 100. That is the military – guns and the military. I lived on base during most of the Vietnam war, but was against that war.

Many of the members of the Seventh Day Adventist church are ultra right-wing conservatives. Many of the members of this church support the Iraq war. Reason? End Times prophesy found in Daniel and Revelation. This is one of the classes I took while going to a Seventh Day Adventist college. So while college kids at California colleges were doing drugs – I was studying the drug addled rumblings of the last book of the Christian Bible. Ha! With a straight face the college instructor attempted to make a drug addict’s rambling sound logical. End of times, Jesus is coming soon. The Middle East or Israel is key to these e d oh time mythology.

So – returning to Dr. Ben Carson, who is an SDA and his desire to be president. NuttyYahoo would be so pleased to have his very own puppet. The right wingers – end of timers – are praying for a major war in the Middle East. Then they expect most of the Jews to convert to right wing evangelical Christian whatever. Evangelicals can’t agree on the details.

President Ben Carson with his skilled hands on that mythical read doomsday button –  NuttyYahoo standing behind him, as the real power in the Oval office.

Either this is all real – or we are all watching a really bad horror movie.

Ben Carson-no way!

First off ALL the GOP candidates currently running for the office in the white house claim to be Christian, climate change denier, anti Science, they all believe in Creation myth as told in the King James version of the Bible.

Retired Neuro surgeon Ben Carson has separated himself from the pack for several reasons. First his denial of the GOP’s war on women – telling us that it isn’t a war on women, but rather on what’s inside women. That means the “lady parts”?? I let that remark pass because it appears that female biology, physiology were never part of GOP basic education.

Over the weekend I learned an important fact that makes Carson completely unacceptable to be President of the U.S. Ben Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist – SDA. His father was a minister. Carson is an – End of Timer – the Adventist part of Seventh Day Adventist is the clue. The Adventists go to church on the Seventh Day of the week – Saturday or Sabbath. The believe that the whole Bible is the literal word of God. Their food restrictions are loosely based on the Jewish laws found in Leviticus.

In the early to mid 19th century there was a “great awakening” and new churches emerged. Preacher Miller came up with a theory that Christ would be returning to earth in 1844. Miller and his followers gathered on a hill on the appointed night and waited for Christ’s return. Of course this didn’t happen. Normally that mistake would have killed the church. But a prophet happened along, Ellen White, who through “automatic” writing from Angles who were connected to Christ – sent messages to this group of true believers. This story is told repeatedly as we go through the church and church school religious training. Outsiders who have studied the organization and history of the church give us the rest of the story – without the tireless work of a female prophet there would be no Seventh Day Adventist church. Yet the primary message of this church is misogynistic – because of the Garden of Eden and that evil bitch – Eve. The SDA church is behind the “creation Science” from the book of Genesis. All the other Evangelicals use the SDA “science” to support the rest of the “end of times” message to support their house of cards religion built on mythology. God is coming again and if we all follow the teachings (windbaggery), repent our sins and get ourselves born again then we might get to heaven.

Ellen White grew the SDA church, adding schools and colleges. Loma Linda medical University in Southern California is one of the many colleges. (My point being, that a SAD who is also a M.D., is not unusual.) But these church educated M.D. still believe in Bible mythology – thus the reason for Baboon heart transplant into a human child a few decades ago.

Back to the religious bigot and misogynistic Ben Carson. The SDA church as no women in leadership positions – the Quiverfull male/female ideal of female submission to the male head is the way the SAD church operates. Ben Carson is a hater – that’s the way males are raised. Ministers beating their wives – who can the women turn to for help? The male can do no wrong. Ben Carson’s father was a minister of that backwards, misogynistic church.

I know the SDA church. My great grandmother was a SDA, my mother was a SDA, I was raised in that culture. School, Church, College and then I walked away. I know the cultural, the people. In the U.S. most SDAs are Republicans. They loved Bush’s Iraqi War. Bring on the end times is their daily prayer. “I am sure Jesus is coming soon.” That is a common greeting between SDA members.

That said – there are also good and honest people who are SDAs. In the Caribbean one guy holds a high elected office. If I lived down there and could vote – I would vote for him and campaign for him. Ben Carson is an arrogant retired Neurosurgeon. How did he treat the women he worked with?

P.S. This word processor keeps changing SDA to SAD. Interesting.

There are still cat videos or politics

No matter how perverted or stupid the news – all of that can be forgotten with cat videos set to play and repeat. Kitten videos, kids, cats and puppies.

We are reminded that the war on women by the GOP candidates is real. The Republicans have long wanted to “fix” Social Security. Their fix involves privatization – meaning that the stock traders are going to become billionaires. We are reminded that it is the elderly women who must have their social security checks to survive. Charles B. Pierce calls the politicians who campaign on a anti social security platform – Granny Starvers.

Both Slate.com (Helaine Olen) and Scott Lemeux (Lawyers, Guns & Money blog) explain how the war on Social Security is also a war on women. My extended family has a few Tea Party members, these folks are angry. One retired relative went off on a half hour monologue about the idiots who call Social Security – welfare, an entitlement. He and his wife paid into a retirement fund, they earned this. What he was saying is the general consensus of my relative’s peers. He votes straight GOP, he has Fox “News” running 24/7. He and his friends do this because they believe that’s how Fox wins rating wars. Of course, according to Fox viewers, the most hated people are the lazy poor free loaders. Don’t forget the “illegal” immigrants pouring over the boarder.

The belief system of the Tea baggers is exceedingly ridged. The Fox taking heads disseminate the conservative talking points. Each talking head delivers similar messages, reinforcing the central thesis. Folks who are raised as Evangelical Fundamentalists are frighteningly easy to brainwash, or program. These folks can repeat the extreme right wing mantra – even if the memes conflict. Is there a conspiracy of an elite group who focus the one message, spoken from many mouths? Sort of like 1984?

Cats don’t care. My cat has me well trained. I feed him, pet him, scratch his head. At night he sleeps next to me. He reminds me to watch cat videos. He knows the dog’s tail is his personal cat toy. I don’t think cats would willingly join a political party.
