Black is White, Up is Down, and Patriots are “Snitches” in GOP Land

Geraldo Rivera, Peabody-Award-winning-ABC-journalist-turned-Fox-News-Hack had this to say about the Trump Whistleblower:  

“So it’s going to be the president of the United States in a conversation that was intercepted by a rotten snitch, I’d love to wap him, but that’s another story.”

(“Wap” is slang for to beat or strike, according to Mediaite.)

“Imagine this poor president, his whole tenure in office has been marked by snitches, and rats, and backstabbers, and it’s amazing how he functions at all.

“Snitches and rats”… that’s what the Right Wing’s phony patriots are calling real patriots these days. The-guy-currently-residing-in-the-white-house has allegedly attempted to blackmail a foreign country into aiding his re-election bid, by dangling previously promised American aid like a carrot, and the Rabid Right is A-OK with that. THINK ABOUT THAT.

(Not for nothin’, but I could probably squash Geraldo like a bug with minimal effort.)

What, No Climate Change Plan in Those 12 Whole Minutes?

One Democratic Debate in and the Whining Has Begun

If you watch the Democratic debates expecting the candidates to lay out their entire platforms for you, you’re in for some disappointment. The most you can expect to take away are the bullet points and, as the first debate showed, a take on the candidates’ civility or lack thereof.

A January 2019 Pew Research poll listed 18 topics in order of importance to voters:

Climate Change activists are unhappy about the lack of time devoted to their concerns. As Media Matters reported:

The moderators asked a total of 170 questions over the course of the two nights, but just 10 were focused on climate change, or less than 6% — five questions each night. (…) Still, only half of the participating candidates, 10 of 20, were even given the opportunity to weigh in on climate, and no one got to go into any depth, address follow-up questions, or debate fellow candidates on the specifics of proposals.

Let’s do a little math, shall we? Twenty candidates participated in 4 hours of debate; that means each candidate had at the most, 12 minutes to make their various points. (As usual, some got more time at the expense of others)

If each candidate discussed all 18 topics of concern to voters, they would have a whopping .6 of a minute to cover each. To be fair, if 10 questions were asked on every topic, you would have needed a 5-hour debate at minimum.

Climate Change, like all other issues, is not something you can address with bullet points. Sorry, but you actually have to invest some time and do some research to find the candidates’ positions on the issues.

THAT’S WHY THEY HAVE CAMPAIGN WEBSITES.

Mike Huckabee: Like Son Like Father

I guess we now understand how Mike Huckabee’s son became a dog torturer. In an interview on “Fox and Friends”, Huckabee laughed as he defended the Guy-Currently-Residing-in-the-White-House for questioning a 7-year-old girl’s belief in Santa Clause:

“What is wrong with people? It wasn’t like he was boiling the little girl’s bunny rabbit in a pot on the stove or something.”

Boy, this guy cracks himself up. Really, of all the analogies…
No wonder his kid grew up with psychopathic tendencies. By the way, Mike’s “joke” is a reference to a scene in the movie “Fatal Attraction“, a movie one would not envision a “Pastor” curling up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn to watch.

WTF goes on in this twisted family?

This Ivanka/Jared Thing Gets More Ridiculous Every Day

Why do we keep sending Trump’s know-nothing spawn and significant(?) other to represent us on the world stage? From y net News:

ivanka_jared[otw_shortcode_quote border=”bordered” border_style=”bordered” background_color_class=”otw-silver-background” background_pattern=”otw-pattern-4″ color_class=”otw-black-text”]The US president’s daughter and her husband Jared Kushner head delegation of dignitaries from Washington to the US Embassy inauguration ceremony in Jerusalem; ‘With great joy, I am returning to Jerusalem,’ Ivanka writes on Instagram ahead of visit.[/otw_shortcode_quote]

Dignitaries? These two have no qualifications for this delegation other than being Jewish and related to the-guy-currently-residing-in-the-White House. If being Jewish is required to represent us in Israel (it’s not), send Adam Sandler and Bette Midler for God’s sake, at least they’re intelligent and entertaining.

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of these little pukes flittering around the world pretending to be players in American Politics. This amateur-packed White House is an embarrassment. I hope people come to their senses by 2020.
