When MAGAts Attack

“I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Olympic skier Lindey Vonn said, “I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony.” 

Vonn added: “I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”

For telling the truth, the MAGAts were quickly all over her, like lies, sleaze, and slime on Trump.

“Bah ahahaha! Sucka! Trump winning baby!... #lindseyvonn is the latest to suffer from the "Trump Effect". Should keep your mouth shut and race. Don't insult us... Karma is a mo fo. Glad to see you lose. You're an anti -American... Hoping you bomb the downhill also. You were given a great honor to represent the USA but you took advantage and bashed our president. We will pull for anyone but you!”

Julie Foudy, the former U.S. women’s national soccer team captain shared this message of support for Vonn: “I just spent last 20 min's reading thru tweets directed at @lindseyvonn. Sickened & disgusted once again by the lack of humanity that engulfs our country. She just raced her damn heart out & Trump supporters gloat/cheer/celebrate her inability to medal. Is this what we've become?”

Yes, Julie. Sadly so. Thank FOX(R), Limbaugh. Breitbart, Con-servatives and Trump for ramping up their hate over the decades. This is what we’ve become.

CRAP Indoctrination. And It Shows

Note: The following statements do not apply to Blacks, immigrants, liberals, Democrats, Muslims, Mexicans and even Americans of Mexican ancestry.

“We wish him well, he worked very hard. We found out about it recently and I was surprised by it, but we certainly wish him well and it’s a tough time for him. He did a very good job when he was in the White House. And we hope he has a wonderful career and he will have a great career ahead of him. But it was very sad when we heard about it and certainly he’s also very sad now. He also, as you probably know says he’s innocent and I think you have to remember that.”

“There is no recovery for someone falsely accused — life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?”

The aspiring dictator whines about the lack of due process for his thugs and molesters, as he threatens his political opponent with jail and urges his loyal cult to chant, “Lock her up!” 

Their blind rage and hatred conceals the very idea of hypocrisy from their duped authoritarian brains. And it shows.

Yes, like starting a war based on lies, ignoring due process is OK if you are Republican. Just like molesting and abusing women and children. Locking up political opponents without due process is fine with them. Firing dedicated law enforcement professionals for lack of loyalty is fine with them.

Of course, this makes them fascists to the core.

“Alternative facts” from their Cult of Right-wing Authoritarian Personalities are all they need. Like good little fascists, they embrace their CRAP that blames, accuses, and fuels their hatred for those not in their cult.

Fascism always needs scapegoats. They are usually liberals, minorities, educators, journalists, unions, and others not loyal to their CRAP.

That far Right propaganda is all they need to know. They are well indoctrinated on whom to blame and hate. And it shows. 

If the rule of law or American values and institutions stand in the way of their Dear Leader, they will be viciously attacked. Now the fascists in the White House and Congress are busy attacking anybody in the FBI who is not loyal to their precious Orange Fuhrer. Meanwhile thugs and sex offenders like Roy Moore and Robert Porter are praised and supported.

Loyalty to the Party of Trump and Kim Jong Don is paramount. Like every totalitarian regime in history they demand loyalty to the party and to the Leader from law enforcement agencies.

The Party of Trump and their authoritarian leader are an existential threat to our safety, our health, our equality, our freedom, and to democracy itself. 

And should we need reminding, this is how these corrupt assholes roll:

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created after the financial crisis to protect Americans from being ripped off by financial firms.

As a congressman, Mike Mulvaney called the agency a "sick sad joke." He drafted legislation to abolish it. So people at the bureau were shocked when the president appointed him to run this consumer protection agency.

Under his leadership, the CFPB delayed a new payday lending regulation from going into effect and dropped an investigation into one payday lender that contributed to Mulvaney's campaign. In another move that particularly upset some staffers, the new boss also dropped a lawsuit against an alleged online loan shark called Golden Valley Lending. The suit says the lender illegally charges people up to 950 percent interest rates.

"As a congressman he took $62,000 plus from the payday lenders. And now at the CFPB he's doing their bidding," says Karl Frisch, executive director of the consumer group Allied Progress.

To pay for the tax cuts for corporations and fellow billionaires, Trump is now advocating $1.7 trillion in cuts to social programs like Medicare, which he said he'd never cut. His cult couldn't care less. 

They really don’t give a damn about the US or the American people. And that shows too.

The Dubya Memo

Finally, what the news media refuse to say!

Despite wide-ranging coverage and endless obsessive blathering over the House Republicans’ drafting of the Nunes Memo, the lamestream media still cannot speak the truth.

I have drafted a memo containing conclusive information critical to understanding the character of the leadership of our nation. This memo will reveal what has long gone unspoken at FOX, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, and even PBS. None of these organizations have the courage and honesty to share this crucial information with the American public.

There are certain interests who claim the Dubya Memo must not be released. Many claim it is too late to release the Dubya Memo. Others think it should have been released long ago. Some want it kept secret for another fifty years.

There are rumblings in certain quarters from those who believe the time has now come for the Dubya Memo. They have found the courage to at last see what must be done. 

The Dubya Memo cannot be held back for another day. This moment is the tipping point in history, and has thus demanded this revelation be presented here and now.

This is why the Dubya Memo comes at a time of utmost urgency.

The secret you’ve all felt to be true in the recesses of your heart of hearts can no longer be kept from our national discourse.

Most of you have had the feeling deep inside that something is terribly wrong. An uneasiness falls upon every discussion of American politics. Why are we in this turbulent state?

Could this be even darker than the dreaded "deep state"? Could it be much, much wider than a "Secret Society"? 

Sources say that may well be the case.

The uncertainties and anxieties of the American people need soothing. But I must caution you, the Dubya Memo is not for the faint of heart.

As a concerned and patriotic citizen, I must single handedly assume the great risk of publishing what our network news and corporate media cannot utter. If made public and available to the world at large, this information can bring down the Trump Administration. It will shake the very foundation of a great nation.

Yes. The Dubya Memo at last states the vital truth that our media cannot even suggest, let alone clearly report.

There is a shadow over the land that few realize can be drawn away like the heavy drapes of the Oval Office. But it will take iron resolve and steely courage, along with the will power beyond the boundaries of journalism as we know it.

Only when these dark curtains are opened, shall we finally see the light of day shining on the true essence of an American presidency.

The time has come to confront our unspoken fear. The Dubya Memo will face down that fear for you, so we can finally move on as a united people towards the greater good of our republic and citizenry.

This is no hype! What you are about to learn can change everything. I promise you the Dubya Memo will be all you need to have a complete grasp on the complicated situation and dire circumstances before us.

You, dear reader, have been selected to be the elite vanguard of all recipients of the Dubya Memo.

I’m sure you have reached the point where waiting is no longer an option.

Very soon, you shall have what you all seek.....

....Er, where did I put that damn thing?

....It was just here....

.....Wait! There it is!

It was next to the coffee maker.

The time is NOW, good people!

At long last I hereby release to you and the world the Dubya Memo:

(Redacted for national security reasons.)

The Dubya Memo:

“Trump and all his toadies, sycophants, yes-men, media buffoons, and fart-catching brown-nosers are Major Assholes.”

The New American Dark Age

The times are a-changin’.

Republicans are waging war on not only democracy and voting rights, they are openly attacking science, public education, and journalism. They wish to replace science, education, and a free press with their corporate friendly political propaganda. 

The hysterical shrill whines from the lunatic Right about “fake news”, “liberal media”, and “voter fraud” are as common as rats in a sewer in Trumpistan.

Denial of climate change science is their politically correct, oily dogma.

The Trump administration has banned the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from using the words “science-based” or “evidence-based.” Analysts were told they could use instead: The “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes”.

In other words, they need to be “politically correct” instead of scientifically correct. Just ask the oily climate change deniers.

Trumpists are not only actively censoring science, but suppressing the will of voters in many states. Most American now understand how harmless cannabis is.

They really hate democracy. And hippies.

Except more than “hippies” will be affected with their latest authoritarian move. People suffering from cancer, chronic pain, glaucoma and other medical issues will also be their victims. Some are even Trump voters.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said “good people don’t smoke marijuana,” and has called states’ legalization of marijuana “a mistake,” claiming cannabis is only “slightly less awful than” heroin. He criticized the Obama administration for not taking a more forceful stance against the drug.

Now he has rescinded memos issued during the Obama administration that outlined priorities for federal prosecutions involving marijuana growers and sellers in states where sale of marijuana was legal.

This is where ignorance, bigotry, and hypocrisy over “states’ rights” meet. All over a victimless crime where a medieval mentality law wastes tax dollars and does infinitely more harm than its target of enforcement.

The new American Dark Age is upon us.

Just Shut Up

This is how the Cult of Right-wing Authoritarian Personalities operates:

Right-wing Authoritarian Trumpist and former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke abused his authority to harass and punish a fellow airline traveler.

Passenger Dan Black told Milwaukee investigators that he spotted Clarke after the men boarded the Milwaukee-bound plane in Dallas on Jan. 15. When he asked Clarke if he was, in fact, the sheriff, and Clarke confirmed it, Black said he shook his head. When Clarke asked him if he had a “problem” with that, Black said he didn’t respond because he didn’t want to get in trouble. Investigators found Black’s account credible, according to the affidavit.

Clarke texted one of his officers to detain Black upon arrival in Wisconsin, according to the affidavit. “Just a field interview, no arrest unless he becomes an asshole with your guys,” Clarke texted, according to a screenshot obtained of the texts. “Question for him is why he said anything to me. Why didn’t he just keep his mouth shut?”

Black was then met by six deputies and two police dogs, according to a complaint he filed against Clarke with the Milwaukee County Executive’s Office. Black was detained and questioned by deputies about “remarks” he had made to Clarke, which Black denied, and then was escorted to a friend’s car to leave the airport.

...Investigators for the Audit Services Division of the Milwaukee County controller’s office determined as part of its own investigation that Clarke had “used his official position as sheriff of Milwaukee County in excess of his lawful authority to direct his deputies to stop and question Black without legal justification.”

“Why didn’t he just keep his mouth shut?”

Unless you're looking to be punished, shut up, obey, and respect the C.R.A.P’s authority. I'm pretty sure that's what it says in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. 

Unless it’s a Democrat, then IOKIYAR to say whatever you want. After all, only the C.R.A.P is allowed to interpret the Constitution. 

Don’t those commie liberals know free speech is for con-servatives, the rich and corporations only? 

Poor wittow sensitive baby Clarke had to whine:

BREAKING NEWS! When LYING LIB MEDIA makes up FAKE NEWS to smear me, the ANTIDOTE is go right at them. Punch them in the nose & MAKE THEM TASTE THEIR OWN BLOOD. Nothing gets a bully like LYING LIB MEDIA’S attention better than to give them a taste of their own blood 

Nothing like getting under the skin of lefties like I did today. I fight to win. You come at me libs you better bring a hard hat, some aspirin and your veggie wrap because it’s going to be a long day and I’m going to smack you around until you crawl back to your mom’s basement.

Poor wittow tough guy. Better sound like Saddam or Kim Jong Don. That’ll scare those commie snowflakes.

Whatever happened to, “Why didn’t he just keep his mouth shut?” 

Something authoritarian assholes never learn. They really are nothing but common thugs and bullies.

The Con-servative Ghost of Christmas Past

It's time for a visit from the Con-servative Ghost of Christmas Past.

Gary Aldrich, a former FBI agent who worked on the security team for the Bush and Clinton White Houses, spewed his hatred and deranged imagination in the 1996 book entitled "Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House."

Knowing the radical Right will believe anything about those they hate, his book claimed that Hillary Clinton's Christmas decorating team decided to deck the tree with drug paraphernalia, condoms and cock rings.

This is American con-servatism folks.

Does bringing this up appear to be in bad taste? 

Then consider the source. This is how the radical Right operates. They lie, and I call them out. The truth shouldn’t take a holiday. The Right attacks and undermines the truth every day of the year.

Perhaps just quoting con-servatives is in bad taste, but my quoting them is not as foul and evil as those who produce it.

They never let go of their hate and lies. Not even when it comes to wrapping their lies in a big Christmas bow. 

THEY invented a “war on Christmas” to attack liberals and stir up hate. This has been happening since the Clinton Derangement Syndrome drove them into a frenzy of lies and blind hate. They have no qualms whatsoever about such matters, which happens to be the point I’m making here.

I will be here to remind them of Christmas past. I am the ghost to their Scrooge. I will haunt them as long as they lie and hate in the name of greed and the political power of wealth.

Merry Christmas.

Welcome To The Cult, America

Cults. Just the word evokes images of mindless death and tragedy. Jonestown, Waco, Heaven’s Gate. The grisly evidence of cult brainwashing is there for all to see, but sadly too late to save the victims.

The existence of cults is evidence that humans have an innate herd instinct that induces those with anger and hate, or simple fear, uncertainly, and anxiety to join groups of true believers. True believers blindly follow their leaders. 

Believing leaders frees them of the need for self-examination and intellectual curiosity to adapt to the world. Believing leaders frees them of doubt and moral ambiguity. Believing leaders endows them with the belief that they alone possess the truth and superior morality. Believing leaders means rejecting all facts and information their leaders want them to reject.

Let’s look at some examples.

If you believe an ancient alien warlord named Xenu dropped souls into volcanoes, you are in a cult.

If you believe Sun Myung Moon was Jesus returned, you are in a cult.

If you believe David Koresh was the new Messiah, you are in a cult.

If you believed Charles Manson’s “Helter Skelter” gibberish, you were in a cult.

If you believed a creepy castrated guy called “Do” telling you to put on your Nike shoes to prepare to go up to a spaceship, you WERE in a cult.

If you believed Jim Jones was a prophet and drank his koolade, you WERE in a cult.

I think we're clear, right? Cultists believe their leaders without question, and are indoctrinated to distrust all other sources of information. They will revere and serve their leaders to any degree, up to and including their deaths. They are true believers.

Now let’s look at the biggest cult the United States has ever seen. Millions of good Americans have willingly drunk their leaders’ koolade, and refuse all facts and information their leaders want them to reject.

How do we know they are a cult? And how do we know if YOU are in this cult?

Let’s look at some more examples of cult indoctrination.

If you believe corporate owned newspapers and corporate TV network news are “liberal media”, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe FOX News is "fair and balanced", you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe Bannon, Breitbart and Limbaugh, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe there is no such thing as climate change, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe the scientific consensus on greenhouse gasses contributing to climate change is false, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe paid shills of Big Oil telling you billions of tons of greenhouse gasses have no effect on climate, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe the Republicans and the NRA saying Democrats and liberals want to take your guns, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe there is a “war on Christmas”, you are in a cult and drank the koolade. 

If you believe white Christians are persecuted and stripped of their religious freedom, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe Saddam was in cahoots with al-Qaeda, had “biological labs” and “nukular” aluminum tubes for a nuclear weapons program, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe Black Lives Matter is a racist hate group, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe liberals are to blame for everything wrong in our country, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe unions are bad for Americans, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe universal public healthcare is communism, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe colleges are pushing a “liberal agenda”, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe Hillary Clinton ran a pedophilia sex ring from a pizza parlor, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe Hillary Clinton should be locked up without criminal charges, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe Trump was sent by Jesus to make America great, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe Trump calling over a dozen credible women he molested liars, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe birther Trump when he said Obama was not born in the US, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe Trump was correct when he said, “Very fine people” marched with Nazis in Charlottesville, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe Trump blaming “fake news”, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe Trump about anything, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe birther pedophile Roy Moore calling credible accusers liars, and blaming the “liberal media”, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe only conservatives have values, you are in a cult and drank the koolade. 

If you believe tax cuts for corporations and the rich benefit anyone but the rich, you are in a cult and drank the koolade.

If you believe any of this, you are in the cult of Con-servatism. Your fears, anxieties and resentments have been fueled to the point of paranoia. You are told who to blame, who to resent, who to attack, who to accuse, who to distrust... and above all, who to vote for. You are being told your cult leaders should have complete power to rule our nation. You are told only your leaders like Trump can save our country. This is the indoctrination. This is the power of the far Right Cult of Con-servatism.

And this is the authoritarianism that leads to totalitarianism.

The far Right Cult of Con-servatism is a clear and present danger to democracy, equality, justice, freedom, and to our republic itself.

Until this cult is exposed and stripped of its power, our nation will slide further into totalitarian suppression of voter rights, education, unions, journalism, and minority rights.

This cult is in complete service to their masters. Their masters are the far Right corporate elites and neo-aristocracy that has gained almost complete control of our government. They are not concerned for our Constitutional general welfare. They want to eliminate or control it. They are dismantling our Constitutional regulation of commerce. Their wealth is the only “free speech” that is heard by their puppets in Congress.

Their puppets will do everything in their power to assure trickle up wealth for their masters.

This cult can only deliver the people fouled air and water, corporate controlled education, far Right propaganda in corporate media, Orwellian squalor, and permanent war.

This is how they will make America great again... for them only. The cult of duped Americans will reap what their masters have sown.

Unfortunately the rest of us will also suffer the consequences. And the far Right Cult of Con-servatism will continue to blame us.

That is how all cults operate. We are now to the point where we cannot save the victims.

Welcome to the Cult, America. Drink the koolade and make yourself great again, or witness in horror the end of the Great Experiment in democracy.
