    GM TODville.

    In response to Desertflower’s posts on the previous thread (re: white males in charge of WH policy, and DJT supporters), this is true about EVERYTHING the MSM express doubts (both sides!) about:


    From July…

    From November…

    And this, from @sarahkendzior:

      “Birtherism was never truly about where Barack Obama came from. It was about where he was allowed to go.”

      Most perfect quote on this birther business EVER.

        GM DF.

        And isn’t it frustrating since Barack Obama has more character, resolve and sense of purpose (other than money and greed) than anything these bigots could ever come up with?

        Oh, and not to mention he’s the BEST orator and writer of his generation.

        Yet MSM continue to prop up a PROVEN liar, kleptocratic autocrat and suggest that evidence uncovered re: #Kremlingate is simply “one side” of the story, and fall all over themselves praising the #KabukiTheater of the “surgical” “precision” Syrian airstrikes which did NOTHING to halt Assad’s slaughter… case-in-point (the same city hit with chemical weapons bombed again yesterday):

    Here’s something I hadn’t thought of…
    Joy Reid’s guest (Editor of National Memo Joe Conason) just asked what kind of an uproar there would have been if Hillary had won and “if a woman President had an emotional response to pictures, and made policy that way…”
    I think we all know what the answer would have been.

      This is about the White Men’s Club being scared shitless of losing its place in society and in power. As we have seen, they will stop at nothing to slow the inevitable progress. They will lie, cheat, steal and collude with an adversary to stay relevant and powerful. Democracy and the people be damned. They must be voted out before they destroy the world for their insatiable lust for power and relevance.

        The good news is that the world is still moving, people are still having babies of all kinds and colors. This is good….the world will not stop for them. We need to reach them all and educate. Register them to vote. All that being an informed and active citizen of our country, our planet, requires of us.

        What you say is so true. When I think of what McConnell did I still can’t believe it. Trump is another matter. He may only hurt a small group over 4 years but the Supreme Court appointment and those to come behind Gorsuch is a two generation stretch of pain.

      I would say they were TRUTHFUL signs…

      “The motorcade crossed the Intercoastal Waterway and into West Palm Beach, arriving at the Trump International golf course at 9:05 a.m. Motorcade stopped for traffic lights, and passed a small group of about a dozen protesters with signs reading “Resign,” “Loser,” and “Impeach Trump” outside the golf course entrance.”

        I am so sorry to hear that Twitter is still suspending your account, BWD.
        It’s possible that Coordinated Twitter Troll Haters targeted you for your activism.
        I was suspended on Nov 6 2016. It took until after the election for my account to be allowed re-entry to the Twitter world……5-6 days later. At one time before my suspension, my PC was compromised. I had loads of Russian Tweets following me & clouding my Twitter feed. I was suspended again this year. This time, I knew exactly why. The suspension lasted for 2 days. I was critical of Netanyahu.
        Organized Trolls are real. They target effective Twitter Justice Activists. They must have seen BWD as an effective Activist.
        I hope BWD that You get back on. Your VOICE is Important for Us All.

        I’m sorry to hear that, BWD. Why would they suspend you and not even tell you why you suspended?!?!? This is ridiculous!

        I’m guessing you must have posted some truth that the trolls didn’t want to hear, so as Nena said, you were targeted. I love how Twitter is quick to suspend accounts that offend the “deplorables” with the truth, but it takes months (or years) of ugly racist, sexist, and other vicious rhetoric before they can suspend the deplorable accounts….

        Hoping they come to their senses and restore your account soon.

        What is wrong with these people who ask Twitter to block accounts that mentions truth they don’t want to hear. I followed you & read your stuff everyday and I can’t believe that some people were offended enough to get you banned. I sincerely hope Twitter reconsiders and reinstates you soon

      Our media is so dam stupid. These idiot felt for Trump presidential B.S. when he gave his SOTU speech. Then weeks later he was saying that President Obama wiretap his phones at Trump Tower.

  43. 84 whenpamelawandered
    April 8, 2017 at 10:23 pm

    I have been pondering whether it is feasible, in a system of checks and balances, is there any chance the SCOTUS, seeing where we are headed, all intelligent, all claiming allegiance to the constitution, as well as speaking out in unison against GORSUCH a week ago – couldn’t CJ Roberts refuse to swear GORSUCH in, thereby doing his duty to the constitution and the country, and the world? Surely they can all see where this is heading?

    • 85 globalcitizenlinda
      April 8, 2017 at 10:56 pm

      under normal circumstances, a SCOTUS with integrity could do this … but the 4 conservatives currently on the court are equally evil, drunk with power and determined to serve their very rich masters (corporations and the 1%).

      a few days ago, did you see the information the information someone provided here about how close justice kennedy and the homegrown demagogue and his family are … to me that was the last straw ….. We, The People, have to save ourselves from the gop monsters, scoundrels and scumbags … oh, you can see how I “love” them

        April 8, 2017 at 11:11 pm

        Thank you, gcl, I did see and read that article, share your response totally. But Kennedy has often been a swing vote, and I held out hope when all 8 concurred against this nominee. If SCOTUS is the last resort to maintain balance (haha), then I guess we must hold onto whatever hope may lie in the final determination of culpability from the FBI, and Intelligence community. In optimism I pray for the biggest sting in human history, many paddy wagons full! So little of what we are witnessing makes any sense at all.

    Here’s something to keep in mind re: East Asia.

    South Korea has an interim President — in exactly a month, they will hold elections for a new President…

    Gordon Chang is often on @cbsradionews as “Korea expert…” (but who knows?)

    So, just one more thing to worry about (plus elections this year in France and Germany for their leaders).

    Although the White House apparently hasn’t informed anyone, DJT did speak to Japan PM Abe today:

    Pray for us all. Death, destruction and a nuclear winter is looming in our near future. N. Korea will attack now that the war hawks and 45 have provoked them. PBO worked from the time he was a senator throughout his presidency to lessen the likelihood of what we are seeing now . Too much of the world is in turmoil from South America, to England and EU countries, to S. Korea to the Balkans. It is scary that so much of the world is unstable and that the US is the cause of some of it and does not have the moral stance to influence any of the rest. We have destroyed our children’s future. I do not see a way out of all of this.

    • 107 Don

      You are so right in your thinking CEB, but it also goes to show anyone that was paying attention how much President Obama and his administration kept the wolves at bay for the last eight years. We now have no moral standing in the world; we are looked upon as a joke and a warmonger. I can only hope that Trump doesn’t launch a nuclear strike against North Korea, because once he does, the nuclear genie isn’t going back into the bottle.
