My country tis of me


Sweet land of hackery


Hack into emails, I don't care


Does it get me my candidate?


In politics, all's fair


My country tis of me


That's how I roll


Get dirt from an enemy?


Goodness, how droll


I would never do that


Not in 5,000 years


Why just look at my record


Least that which appears


I'm the model of decency, virtue and strength


Just look at my fingers!


Look at the length!


Oh my dear fellows


You bore me with fact


The only thing matters


One knows how to act


Never admit things


Deny and deny


They cannot dispute you


The truth is a lie


Its fake news and politics


That's all that it is


The sooner you learn this


You'll get far in my biz


Now let us not tarry


Dear dotardy chaps


We have countries to rob!


Jeeves....get me my maps

Michael Sand is a former Green Beret, and comes from a family of military servicemembers. As he wrote on Facebook, his father was a World War II veteran fighting fascism, he served in Vietnam fighting communism, and his son is currently serving in the Army fighting the Taliban and terrorism.

"Three vastly different enemies, but enemies who shared one common trait," Sand writes. "ALL of them stifle free speech. All of them bully, degrade and terrorize those who hold opposing views and who peacefully express them."

The Big Switcheroo

The Democratic Party started in 1828 as anti-Federal faction and grew to become one of the leading political forces of the United States.


The GOP started in 1854 – few years later than its Democratic counterpart – to stop slavery, which was viewed as unconstitutional.

        When the military just got 750 billion $$, forgive me if I don’t believe we lack money to help the poor, the displaced, the homeless, the hungry and the sick.

        It’s simply about priorities. When they want money for something, it’s there.

        And frankly, 36 people have enough money to solve all the problems in the world.

        How come them getting lower taxes is our priority?

        There is no word for the cravenness of this current time.

        LOL, the delusion is real.....

        "Adelson flushes Trump campaign with cash. In May, Adelson reportedly promised to spend up to $100m. to elect Trump, topping the $93m. he spent in the 2012 cycle to elect former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, according to The New York Times."

        ---moved embassy to Jerusalem

        The NRA is spending more than it ever has on elections this year: more than $36 million at last count, with another four weeks until Election Day, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

        "And Trump is by far the largest beneficiary, with the NRA spending more than $21 million to help him: $9.6 million on ads and other pro-Trump materials, and another $12 million attacking Hillary Clinton."

        ---2018 has been the biggest mass murder year in history

        "Falwell was instrumental in delivering 81% of white Christian evangelical voters for Trump in 2016. Ahead of next month’s midterm elections, that support appears to be holding up, although there has been some erosion among evangelical women. A survey published in early October by the Public Religion Research Institute found that 72% of white evangelical Protestants had a favourable opinion of the president."

        ---appoints extreme right judges.

        "These judicial appointments reveal Trump for what he truly is: a Republican. His court picks amount to a right-wing takeover of the court system. This has been the objective of every Republican president since Ronald Reagan.

        “Casino owner Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, shot to the top of the list with their $112 million donation to two super PACs that aims to help Republicans retain their hold on Congress. In 2016, the couple gave large sums to anti-Clinton groups and together have been the biggest political givers of the past three elections.”

        These right-wingers are funny. All the while Bush was prez, they said “eff u dems, we won. We don’t need to be partisan”

        Then, when Obama wins, they sudddenly demand bi-partisanship!

        Repubs obstruct Obama for 8 years. Now that Trump is prez, it’s a moral outrage to disagree with him. Poor baby.

        They have been horrendous to the Clintons for 30+ years. Claim they killed Foster, claim she killed Stevens, claim there is a Clinton kill list, claimed they stole on Whitewater, claim they stole on travel gate, and impeached him for lying about an affair. Investigated for 8 years. Meets with AG, omg end of world, say nothing about Kushner inviting AG to private air flight, want her locked up for private server, don’t care when Repubs use them.

        And now that their dumb asses elected a Genovese crime family member to be prez, they suddenly want to “tone down the rhetoric”

        Gth out of here. They will receive the same harsh treatment they love to dish out.

        There will be no going easy on them, cause......cause why? Why do they deserve that?

        And do not bother sugar- coating the malicious hatred and words towards Hillary. Too late for that now. And they just want to play kinder-gentler now, so people will go easy on their choice of the big baffoon as our leader in chief.

        No way Jose......or, in Trump talk: no way drug-dealing, disease ridden criminal.

        Reap what they have sown......for God’s sakes, since Reagan!

        “In 2011, John Edwards was indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly using hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds to hide Hunter during the 2008 presidential race. The following year, he was acquitted on one count of violating campaign finance rules and a federal judge declared a mistrial on five other criminal counts after the jury came back deadlocked.”

        See, he didn’t use campaign funds, either. It was a “friend” who paid her off for him.

        But it was deemed a crime, just the same. And I can be pretty sure you republicans were positive it was a crime when Edwards did it. And was indicted. And had a trial.

        You see, I SAW Trump being asked about the payment by a reporter, and he said he knew nothing about it.

        We HEARD him on the phone talking about it.

        And his lawyer has been charged with a crime for making the payment.

        And now he says ok, I knew, but it’s no big deal.

        A private transaction does not exist in a public office. This freak works for us, that’s what you dont get, or care about.

        Edwards had a hung jury because his lawyer argued he did it to hide it from his family, not the public.....kind of lame, if you ask me.

        But he was indicted and went to trial. Now, because it’s Trump, it’s no big deal.

        Same way you want Hillary in prison for using a private server, but don’t care one bit that Ivanka and Jared use private emails, and Trump uses non secure private phones.

        And what bothers me most is the fact that Ivanka and Jared have security clearance at all.

        Wasn’t it alleged that Kushner shared an enemies list with MBS?

        Ivanka has business with China.....how do we know she doesnt tell secrets to help her biz?

        It’s wrong. They are not qualified, and I don’t trust them.

        But, of course, anything Trump is ok, because McConnell makes sure of it. Just as he made sure anything Obama was bad.

        The wimpiest bunch of boot lickers EVAH to come down the pike.

        And for Who? Their donors, that’s who.

        “You’ll get your taxes down” “you’ll keep your AK 47’s” “you’ll get your crimilization of abortion”

        Woke up to get my coffee....heard a news clip of Comey. He said in La Cosa Nostra, it’s all about the Boss...”what can you do for me?” It’s not about the good of the community, but just the boss.

        This is what struck him about Trump.

        And you know for sure it’s the same with Putin, Netanyahu, Jong Un and MBS.

        America is not built that way. America is out of many, one.

        Not one for one and all for one. We don’t do despots here.

        And we don’t do organized crime as running gvt.

        Not saying we don’t have criminals in gvt....Citizens United is a green light for them!

        But we are getting rid of that. And people who complain about the dem party....please leave it. They are about to kick some plutocrat ass.

        Their values are in the right place. Trust that the criminals on their side will be outed too.

        But the core values are sterling. So, while you ignore the repub destruction since Reagan, please if you don’t like dems, get the hell out of their way.

        Oh for.....even using France to diss Hillary as a poor excuse for giving us Trump.

        “Hello french guy here.

        - People arent protesting against Paris agreement or environment protection at all. They are protesting against fiscal inequality and high level of taxes on the poorest people.”

        Exactly what Trump and the republicans have done here.

        Tax cuts for rich, rising cost of living, more taxes on poor to make up for what you gave back to the Uber rich.

        And now you want to take from food stamps to pay for the wall you said Mexico would pay for.

        Hey, you don’t want people on food stamps? Pay higher wages. Or get the cost of living down.

        Trump is doing neither. And Hillary would have. “Affordable” is her thing.

        “For profit” is Trumps.

        Figure it out.

        So you know why rightwingers refuse to believe anything bad about Trump.....

        They are in a different universe.

        In their universe, Trump is the hero, with military associates who are helping him bring down the deep state.

        Everything bad about Trump is engineered by the deep state.

        They thought Dec 5 was supposed to be a day of massive arrests, including Hillary and Obama...surely you saw that meme Trump retweeted with them all behind bars?

        They think Bush 41 was assasinated, taken out, as a big leader of deep state.

        They want the Clinton Foundation investigated......again. And I’m sure had dems not won the House, would have Hillary on the stand..... again.

        They think they are hero patriots saving America from the dem/repub deep state.

        And they feel totally entitled to scream lock her up, because Lionel and Klannity tell them daily what a tramp she is. That’s why Laura Ingraham said dems like pornography better that Rudolph the red nosed reindeer.....

        They think Trump is bringing down pizzagate. Hillary’s child pornography ring.

        And this has been the narrative for a long long time.

        They think they know secrets the rest of us are too stupid to suss out.....and their media fills them in daily.....on many stations, both online, radio totally and tv.

        I certainly hope the deep state is paying attention, cause these freaks have guns.

        .....

        .....

        .....

        At least when Mueller brought down John Gotti, they didn’t try to pretend it wasn’t real.

        They will never believe you, because they have bought into a parallel world.

        Right wingers who talk about accountability....that’s really rich. Bush was held accountable for nothing. Nada. Zip.

        And that was due to Pelosi and Obama......not wanting to put the country through that. And moving forward, not back.

        I saw Ole Darth Cheney at 41’s funeral.....Blackwater Dick. Secret energy meeting Dick. KBR soldiers being electrocuted in the showers Dick. Torture Dick. Go to the dark side Dick.

        Private server Rove. 22 million deleted emails Rove. Railroading a political opponent into prison Rove. (Siegelmann)

        Neocon Bolton. Invade Iraq Bolton. Accuse the Muslims Bolton. Beholden to AIPAC Bolton. Where is he now? Geeeeeee

        And who’s president? Pussy grabber oh it’s only locker room talk Trump. Fraudster, money launderer Trump.....public records, look it up.

        Accused by 22 women of sexual molestation Trump. Accused of rape and paedophilia Trump.

        And has he been put on trial, like both Clintons? No. Know why? Repubs in charge of Congress in all these matters. Except for the 1.6 years Dems chose not to go after their political opponents.

        But righty’s dont miss a beat. Charge charge charge, spend money and hate. Even when they themselves are guilty of the same.

        Don’t you care that Trump has so many female accusers? Don’t you care that he lied about paying one off, committing campaign finance fraud on the voters?

        Don’t you care that Jared and Ivanka....NO political experience, not voted for by anyone, have access to classified info, and use private email accounts?

        Have business interests that could influence their behaviors?

        You just trust them implicitly, but a former First Lady and senator must be investigated?

        Chaffetts and Gowdy used private email accounts WHILE they had Hillary under investigation!

        Mitt Romney removed all the computers from his turn as Gvr of Massachusetts....just took them and replaced them! Now he’s a senator in Utah.

        Don’t you care that 4 special forces soldiers died in Niger on Trump’s watch? Don’t you want to hold 954 days of hearings on that? Shouldn’t Tillerson have spent 11 hours being grilled?

        Accountability my ass.

        Now it appears Don jr lied to Congress (a crime), but McConnell will not bring him in front of Congress to find out.

        Sessions lied to Congress. Zzzzzzzzzzz

        So just stop. Everyone knows the only outrage you have is partisan. Therefore, phony.

        ****

        "Nearly one year ago, the Republican Congress passed and the president signed the controversial and partisan Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA).

        Real wage growth has been largely nonexistent for the average worker since the tax bill passed. Production nonsupervisory workers only saw a 0.2% year-over-year increase in average hourly earnings last quarter.

        The people who did benefit, however, made out like bandits. Analysts from the Tax Policy Center estimate that the top 1% of earners will receive a larger share of the tax cut this year than the entire bottom 60% combined, with the average one-percenter receiving a windfall of more than $50,000 — a result of the enormous tax cuts for corporations and large pass-through businesses, which are disproportionately owned by the wealthy."

        "I'll get your taxes down", Trump promised them.

        And he did. Now they want cuts to social security and medicaide, to pay for the wall he said Mexico would pay for.

        This is an oligarchy. And since the coup by Putin and the far right, you're giving it away to people from another country, who aren't even Americans!

        I can only look on in wonder and awe, at the stupidity and weaknesss of we the people, who believe these charlatans.

        “President Trump campaigned on a promise to “drain the swamp.” Instead, he has deepened it. Trump appointees have turned cabinet positions into personal fiefdoms, using taxpayer dollars to fly first class, commission trips on private jets, boost personal security details and spend lavishly on high-end office furniture — to name only a few egregious examples. Throughout the government, the Trump administration has hired former lobbyists and political insiders who are now rigging the rules to benefit the well-connected at the expense of the public interest. And at the top, President Trump has run roughshod over longstanding ethical norms, pursuing public policy that benefits his family businesses and promotes his worldwide brand.“

        With her,

        We would not be caging children and putting numbers on their arms like the Nazis did.

        We would not have Kavanaugh on the SC, with our fears of criminalizing abortion again.

        We would not be ALLOWING Putin to continue hacking and having special deals w him.

        And we would not have a president hating half the country and threatening to use guns on them.

        “This week’s news is that GM is closing plants and laying off 15,000 people as it discontinues several models of car in preparation for the transition to autonomous vehicles.

        But, according to a new NBC News report, these closings are only the beginning as GM alone has lost $1 billion because of Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum.

        “They can read the crystal ball and see what’s coming,” said Robert E. Scott, a senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute. “This is the chickens coming home to roost on the broader Trump economic policies.”

        Trump works for rich people. The end is inevitable. We have lived it over and over again.

        Repubs?

        Many of them are going down.

        Remember, at the very beginning of this coup, there was a story that Trump was handing out Russian cash like candy.

        Now you all know there is no such thing as privacy anymore....and McCarthy said, “there are 2 people I think Putin pays, Trump and Rorbacher”. And Ryan said shhhhh, keep it in the family. Remember that?

        Well, chances are, it was a lot more than 2 Putin was paying....a lot.

        And in my opinion, that includes Bernie Sanders.

        All I know.....tax cuts for the rich....policies that encourage biz to leave....not caring about the middle class, working class and the poor.....

        Is a recipe we have tasted already. Reagan, Bush, Bush, now Trump.

        Americans won’t stand for it again. 8.8 million more dem votes in midterms....3 million more votes for Hillary than Trump.

        “Michael Avenatti was arrested on November 14, 2018, in what police described as a felony domestic violence case. In the days that have followed, we have sat idly by waiting for Avenatti’s accuser to come forward.

        On Monday, November 19, Avenatti’s accuser was revealed to be Mareli Miniutti, an aspiring actress who filed her petition against Avenatti in Santa Monica, California.

        On Monday night we received anonymous photos and footage that shows Mareli Miniutti’s activity on her personal Instagram page just hours after accusing Avenatti of domestic abuse. Miniutti has since made her Instagram page private but not before the following posts and video proof was captured. Our source notes that the posts were placed on Instagram just hours after Avenatti was taken into custody.

        The string of posts, shared hours after Avenatti was taken into custody do not seem to paint the violent picture that was first reported by TMZ. The publication originally said their law enforcement source claimed Miniutti’s face was “swollen and bruised” from the incident that took place on Tuesday.

        Prior to his arrest on Wednesday, the publication further reported that Avenatti’s accuser was covering her bruised face with sunglasses while screaming into her cell phone, “I can’t believe you did this to me.”

        We don’t know the severity of those bruises but based on her Instagram posts, either a lot of makeup was applied or TMZ’s report was once again incorrect.”

        Rude, obnoxious people seek control. All they ever do is turn others off. How much rudeness and obnoxiousness can anyone really digest until they are about to vomit all over these uncivilized maggots?

        There is a very real reason the right wing is desperate to ram down their control on our tax dollars: it's so you won't notice most of them are undereducated high school drops outs living off Mommy and Daddy's Social Security and Medicare benefits.

        They aged out of the McMansion at age 35. Those who thought they could be responsible and marry and have kids are now getting the worst blowback from their post millennial spawn.

        Civility in their minds consists mainly of marching with lighted Tiki torches in the streets in the pathetic hope they actually scared us.

        Really? When some of us and our relatives faced active military duty with enemies staring down the barrels of their weapons? When some of us managed to get through 9/11? SuperStorm Sandy?

        All I see when I see these middle aged wannabe unregulated militias is a pack of unkempt, mentally disorganized minds who are spoiled brats who never grew up

        Now, they are getting the backlash they asked for. According to the federal elections board, FEC, the 2018 MidTerms showed that over 2.0 million more voters ages 18 to 25 came out to vote, more than they had in over 100 years.

        And most of them voted Democrat. Not Republican.

        The right wing has sunk as low as it possibly can these days and are more an amusement to the older generations and a target for their own kids to lash out at.

        Who then do they really control? Certainly, not themselves.

        UPDATE (Nov. 16, 12:38 p.m. PT) — A regional jail in The Dalles, Oregon, that houses detainees for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has suggested local sheriffs keep their “numbers low” in the jail to make room for immigrant detainees.

        The Northern Oregon Regional Corrections Facility — or NORCOR — has housed immigration detainees since 1999, when the facility first opened. Critics of that process say it violates Oregon’s sanctuary law and have sued the jail.

        Documents included in that lawsuit give potential insight into how NORCOR allocates space for ICE detainees.

        In a Sept. 29, 2016, email, then-NORCOR Lt. Dan Lindhorst wrote ICE to ask that they increase their number of detainees at the jail.

        “I see this morning we are down to 26 ICE detainees,” Lindhorst wrote. “Could you please see if you can get these numbers up. We have been keeping the county numbers low to make room for the 40 detainees that you had asked for. If you are not going to use us to that extent, please let me know that as well so I can advise my sheriffs.”

        Less than three hours later, an ICE official wrote back indicating detainees would soon arrive from the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington.

        “Tacoma is working on vetting more detainees to go to NORCOR,” ICE official Larry Peterson wrote. “I will let you know when they are ready for transfer.”

        “Thanks, I have been getting pressed for people,” Lindhorst wrote back.

        “No problem,” Peterson wrote. “I will keep hounding them for more.”

        In fact, they mock and belittle Obama and Hillary supporters.

        And your words do as much damage as anyone else. Your echo chamber is huge.

        Between Trumpees and Berniebros, people who supported Hillary kept quite. And I can attest to the treatment I got for supporting both.

        It’s too late for your lectures and chastisement of civility. This president engages in the worst sort. I suggest if you want it toned down, send him a tweet. Be careful tho, they put you in twitter jail if it’s too offensive to Donnie.

        And I have yet to see anything said about Trump as offensive as Butcher of Benghazi, have you?

        They used that one on both Hillary and Barack.

        And that was a 100% lie.

        Cesar Sayoc is sympatico with Russia

        https://www.pressreader.com/usa/los-angeles-times/...

        Lee Harvey Oswald was, too. But Russia deemed him mentally unfit. Sayoc lawyer says he is mentally unfit, too.

        But look what the Kennedy files reveal:

        “According to the documents, “officials of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union believed there was some well-organised conspiracy on the part of the “ultra-right” of the United States to effect a “coup”. They seemed convinced that the assassination was not the deed of one man, but that it arose out of a carefully planned campaign in which several people played a part.”

        The document adds: “They felt that those elements interested in utilising the assassination and playing on anti-communist sentiments in the United States would then utilise this act to stop negotiations with the Soviet Union, attack Cuba and thereafter spread the war. As a result of these feelings, the Soviet Union immediately went into a state of national alert.”

        https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/...

        *******

        I, too, think that an ultra right group killed Kennedy, along with his brother and Martin Luther King. I think Farrakhan killed X....unity and love is not very profitable, huh Lou?

        I think this ultra right group is still operating, and now with kleptocrat Putin, he has joined forces with them.

        And they don’t play nice, which is why so many people are silent in the face of it, and why some people seem to have made a 360% change in their core beliefs.

        This is what I think is going on. Need I say imo?

        I’m not being nice to an asshole!

        ‘No Time To Be Nice: Now Is Not The Moment To Remain Silent’

        “Nice people made the best Nazis.

        Or so I have been told. My mother was born in Munich in 1934, and spent her childhood in Nazi Germany surrounded by nice people who refused to make waves. When things got ugly, the people my mother lived alongside chose not to focus on “politics,” instead busying themselves with happier things. They were lovely, kind people who turned their heads as their neighbors were dragged away.

        I don’t remember the first time I heard the stories my mother told me; I feel like I always knew them. She’s dead now. If she were alive, I imagine she would be quite sanguine; all her anxieties would be realized, so there would no longer be anything left to fear.

        I thought of my mother’s neighbors right after the election, when apolitical friends of mine breathed a sigh of relief that we could stop talking about politics. “That’s over!” they said happily. “Let’s focus on other things.”

        But then a white nationalist was named chief strategist to the president-elect. Aren’t you alarmed? I asked.

        “I choose not to discuss politics publicly,” one friend said. And posted a picture of puppies.

        Another friend messaged me privately. She agreed with me, she assured me. She was just as alarmed as I was! “Count me among the silent resistance,” she said.

        The silent resistance? What did that even mean, to resist silently?

        I thought back to the primary, when so many people I knew were quietly supporting Hillary Clinton but refused to say so out loud. I am a member of multiple “secret” Hillary support groups — shout out to the Bitches for Hillary! — but we had to speak out for her, too, didn’t we? Not doing so only allowed the narratives that she was too flawed, too unpopular to win to take hold — despite the fact that she's on track to receive more votes than any white male candidate ever. When I pointed that out this morning on my Facebook page, a white guy pushed back immediately. “Is that true?” he said, asking me to prove it, as if Google didn’t exist. Yes. It’s true. Why aren’t more people saying it? Where are our voices?

        The morning after the election, I woke up my daughters to a rainy, gray morning. “Who won?” my 12-year-old immediately asked.

        I don’t want to tell you,” I said.

        She began to cry, so I sat on her bed and told her, “We live in Massachusetts. And we are citizens," I reminded her. "We have the least to worry about. And we live in Northampton — a sanctuary city. People who live here are as insulated and safe as can be. You do not need to worry.”

        I told her this because I am her mother, and I want to quell her fears. But this week our president-elect announced he will cut federal funding to sanctuary cities. We are one week in.

        I miss my mother. I am speaking for her now.“

        —Naomi Schulmann

        **********

        You can play nice with Trump and his enablers and get stomped to the ground. Not me.

        You don’t play nice with bullies. People who say things like “snap your abortion-loving neck” deserve no nicety.

        Sorry. No go. And......I have been here quite a while. These people who are telling you to be nice are not. They pretend so as not to hurt their money.

        Once in a while, their true nature pops out. Just mention Hillary.

        See you at the polls. Vote blue!

        History loops. Trump is a bad, bad man.

        “A strategy of tension (Italian: strategia della tensione) is a policy wherein violent struggle is encouraged rather than suppressed. It is usually associated when governments, or security apparatuses within a government, allow or even encourage extremist groups to perform attacks, bombings, murders, and the like. In extreme circumstances, it can even involve agent provocateurs and false flag operations where a terrorist threat is outright invented or created. The goal in such strategies is that such a struggle will rally support behind the military or police forces opposing the radicals, to radicalize opposing movements so that they can be better marginalized, or to permit loosely allied extremist groups to attack enemies of the government.”

        Trump is building up his army of deplorables.

        You republicans better do something fast.

        Mayday, mayday

        Domestic terrorism. Radicalized right here. Been going on forever. Hatred of women, blacks, gays, liberals......you going to try and pretend not?

        Look up Operation Rescue, why don’t you. Complete and total terrorist organization. Sponsored by the church.

        But hey, I’m glad hubpages has decided to stop the hate.

        Next time Hillary Clinton is mentioned, we won’t see the vicious hate aimed at her, right?

        Right.

        Like Trump.....condemns the violence, then goes to a rally and once again blames the media. Absolves himself. Did they scream lock her up again?

        My opinion? Too late.

        The damage is done.
