All The Answers

It's always a delight to see how Trump's loyal Republicans, conservatives, and far Right Cult have ALL the answers, isn't it? 

The smarter Republicans and traditional conservatives are realizing their party has become a cult. Our country needs more of them. And we need them more than ever.

"We're in a strange place. It's becoming a cultish thing, isn't it?" the Tennessee Republican told reporters. "It's not a good place for any party to have a cult-like situation as it relates to a President that happens to be purportedly of the same party."- Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker

That cultish thing is now the Trump Cult. The Cult of Right-wing Authoritarian Personalities has been around and in power for decades. And his base has been waiting for him for a long time, since the Civil War even.

They don't need no stinkin' education. They don't need no stinkin' journalism. They don’t need no stinkin’ free press. They don't need no stinkin' science. And they don’t need no stinkin’ arts.

They got Hannity, Limbaugh and Doocey to do their thinking for them. They trust and believe a pathological liar like Trump, and his Government Of Putin, as they attack the FBI for investigating Russian interference in our election.

Then they call liberals commies.  Amazing, isn't it?

This is because they also get to invent their own language, to unilaterally define words.

“Death taxes”, “death panels” and “Liberal media” exist only in their fevered paranoia.  They need to mistrust and smear information sources that don’t regurgitate far Right talking points. This is exactly how a cult operates.

This Cult of Right-wing Authoritarian Personalities is a load of C.R.A.P. indeed.

Never mind they don't know the difference between communism and democratic socialism. They sure as hell don’t know what neo-liberalism is.

They think Democrats today are the same party as a hundred and fifty years ago, when conservative white racists started a war to keep their slaves.

They think the Constitution is like the Bible, full of eternal truths, instead of an amendable foundation of law, government, and civil rights. They believe that Jesus sent Trump to save America from brown people, or some evil “others”. They believe any crazy crap their authoritarian leaders tell them. If the party line changes, so do their beliefs.

They believed Trump when he said the Electoral College is unfair. Then they believed Trump when he said the Electoral College IS fair. Hint: It’s NOT fair. It is directly counter to the ideal of consent of the governed in the Declaration of Independence. (Thank the slave states for that one, too.)

The same is true of their rigged House gerrymandering, and the very Senate itself. Rural white conservatives will always have the greater proportion of representation. Consent of the governed is now a dead concept. These are the fatal flaws of our doomed experiment as a democratic republic.

Now the C.R.A.P. are so totalitarian, and so fascistic, as to believe our First Amendment’s provision for a free press has spawned the “enemy of the people”.

Remember when they howled about “state media”?  What happened to that? FOX has become their “Ministry of Truth”.

They believe “very fine people” march with Nazis. They believe Trump is honest. They are indoctrinated to believe in a system of rule by “divine Right of Wealth”.

They believe oil corporations’ paid shills and PR over climate and environmental science.

They are indoctrinated to revere wealth and the wealthy to the degree they will submit to corporations writing our laws, and polluters’ dictating environmental policies, and Wall Street swindlers self-regulating their banks. They believe people should serve the economy instead of an economy that serves the people. They are often duped Christians, literally serving mammon. Capitalism is their earthly god. They must believe in de-regulated capitalism, even when it fails.

And there’s the key word. “Believe”. It’s all they have to do. Far Right Authoritarian personalities are usually followers, sucking up the propaganda of FOX, the National Enquirer and Alex Jones.  This is the C.R.A.P. they cling to as tightly as their religion.

Because it IS a cult. It has attracted every American Nazi, white nationalist, and militia nut.

No wonder they hate journalism, science, and higher education. And it’s no wonder they hate liberals and other informed people for questioning their state media, and their incompetent and corrupt Party of Trump.

They are tearing our country apart.

And Putin couldn’t be any happier; that’s for sure.

Incredibly, Donald Trump thought he had them today in Helsinki. He thought he had the right ones.

He had right answers, alright -- which fully explains a lot of things.

Odd that when I asked you for answers to our border issue, none of you leftist could provide an answer.

"Odd that when I asked you for answers to our border issue, none of you leftist could provide an answer." ~~ Majormajor (aka "Odd Chuck")

It's odd you bring up a topic from a former post where, at the time, all your questions were answered. Whose fault is it that you just refuse to acknowledge or even accept them?

Not accepting them doesn't equate to not answering them.

But you already know this.

Chuck, what did you think of your president's blatant and obvious treasonous siding with Putin the puppet-master, today?

Dave Dubya said...

Our Trump loyalist has nothing to say about Trump today. 7-16-18: Putin's Puppet Day.

Majormajor's job is to deflect, deny, distort, distract and dismiss. All he could do is dump a load of reeking whataboutism.

Which way will he slither and squirm next?

On Topic Bill, you just can't read.

"On Topic Bill, you just can't read." ~~ Majormajor (aka "incompetent sleuth" Chuck)

Chuck, I love it! "On Topic Bill"! That ought to be the name of the legislation the republicans in Congress propose in order to keep their imbecilic and treasonous president on the talking points and not veering off onto "Hillary hate" tirades and how he won the election fair-and-square. LOLOL

What an embarrassment!...and on the world stage, no less! What a supreme douche-bag.

Oh, your comment that I "couldn't read" was incorrect. What you should have addressed was your unacknowledgment that your questions were all answered.

I'm having a hard time deciding who's the bigger imbecile -- Donald Trump or you. I'll just have to figure out a satisfactory tie-breaker, I guess.

"The cult of the omnipotent state has millions of followers in the united States. Americans of today view their government in the same way as Christians view their God; they worship and adore the state and they render their lives and fortunes to it. Statists believe that their lives -- their very being -- are a privilege that the state has given to them. They believe that everything they do is -- and should be -- dependent on the consent of the government." ~ Jacob Hornberger

Thanks for the hilarious Jacob Hornberger fantasy quote. Never heard of the guy.

He perverts "Consent of the governed", the liberal value of the founders.

Seems he’s the idiot sneering at those who “excoriate President Trump for trying to establish friendly relations with Russia, especially since it’s not the first time this has happened. It also happened to President Kennedy.”

Only in the fevered minds of the Trump Cult: “Same thing! Kennedy publicly sided with Khrushchev, over bi-partisan Senate committees, the Director of National Intelligence, the CIA and FBI.”

Putin's puppets are very busy distorting, deflecting and distracting from their leader's capitulation to his President Putin.

A Russian agent's work is never done.
