Never Forget


FOX(R) News

9-11-2101


Never forget.

Today we solemnly mark the 100th anniversary of September 11, 2001.

On that terrible day America changed, and thousands died.

But heroes arose.

At the same time we commemorate 9-11, we celebrate the greatest hero of 9-11, our Father of Greater America, and President-for-Life Donald Trump.

Ignoring his throbbing bone spurs, Saint Donald sprinted all three miles from Trump Tower, (about to become the tallest building in New York,) to the burning towers of the World Trade Center.

Again and again, our Father of Greater America dashed into the inferno, rescuing his fellow New Yorkers, carrying one man, or two women, at a time.

His selfless bravery inspired and rallied the first responders. He Alone, through heroic efforts, rescued hundreds of victims of the terrorist attack launched by Saddam Hussein and the Democrat Party.

And there’s even more heroism to celebrate. It was our Dearest Leader’s keen observation of thousands of dancing democrat Muslims in New Jersey that guided us forward. From that day on, He Alone would tell us who to blame for hating America.

Let us now offer our prayer of gratitude to President Donald Trump IV for officially naming FOX(R), and sister company Sinclair Broadcast Group, as the only news outlets in Greater America.

All the news you need...and to never forget.

Fascism: With It, Or Against It?


They blamed foreign "invaders" and “terrorists”, of course. This September 1st marks 80 years since belligerent white nationalism chose its inevitable course of action.On September 1st, 1939 Hitler’s Luftwaffe and Wehrmacht invaded Poland, igniting World War II. In the following two years, many more countries would be invaded, ravaged, and occupied.

The war on belligerent racist nationalism, known as fascism, would eventually claim over 70 million human lives.

The death toll would have been even greater had the Allies not united to defeat the armies of fascism. The US, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union understood cooperation was best for all parties of the alliance.

By May of 1945 the German Nazi Regime was defeated, but racism and fascism would continue to simmer in the dark souls of white nationalists. After the Second World War Bertolt Brecht warned:

"Don't yet rejoice in his defeat, you men!
Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard,

The bitch that bore him is in heat again."

Eighty years after white nationalist Nazi aggression spilled blood across the planet, the same evil has risen again. The US now has a president who openly praises dictators, while demeaning the black president as a foreign usurper. 

His is the face of the rising white nationalism. And he has legions of angry fanatic followers.

Germans lost the power of their vote after Hitler took power. He promptly divided the people into the “us v them” foundation of nationalism. 

Humanity was divided between the Master Race and all others.

The Right has already largely accomplished this goal of division here. Racial tensions are stoked while the press and non-MAGA Americans are "enemies of the people". Now they are set to seize more power to divide us further, reward the rich, punish the poor, poison our planet, and destroy the rule of law.

That is exactly what the Republican Party and its far Right base will do if we let them.

Voting is all we have to defeat the powers of white nationalism. Decent Americans need to find the way to unite against this rising fascism, even if it means voting for a corporatist candidate. It means voting for EVERY candidate that can defeat ANY member of the Party of Trump. 

By all means, vote for Bernie, or anyone you like in the primaries. Then we must vote for the persons on the ballot that can defeat Trump and his extremist party.

This isn’t just an emergency. It’s a national crisis. The 2020 election may well be the final resistance we have against white nationalism and the Trump crime family.

Just remember in the national election, disunity, third parties, and other acts of political purity only enable Trump.

It should be obvious the struggle against neo-liberal corporatism is only more certain to fail under fascist authoritarianism, so this priority needs to be clear. Just as we needed Stalin to defeat Hitler, we damn well need Democrats to defeat Trump and his crime abetting henchmen.

The bottom line is this. One real choice is going to be on the ballot. 

Fascism: Yes, or no?

Moral Weakness


The racist president smeared his feces again. “It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!”

A disgrace? Why? For not “going back where they came from”?

Yes, and it would show a great moral weakness if the Israeli far Right leadership share the fascist racism and bigotry of the American Tangerine Tyrant. 

Netanyahu’s regime took the bait and slammed the door on the Black and Muslim American Representatives. 

Senator Bernie Sanders echoed my thoughts. “If Israel doesn’t want members of the United States Congress to visit their country…maybe they can respectfully decline the billions of dollars that we give to Israel.”


Israel’s Haaretz news outlet also condemned the affront to decency. “The wannabe authoritarian tag-team of Netanyahu and Trump has committed a reckless, racist, contemptible act.”

From his dark corner of Hell, Adolf gloats triumphantly “Wunderbar, Bibi! Just what I would have done!” Satan smiles as he serves the Nazi white nationalist his ice-water. "Authoritarian nationalism triumphs again!"

It comes down to this. The Democratic Representatives were “punished” for being hated by Trump. 

They were condemned by corporate media and demonized by white nationalists as “anti-Semites” for having the gall to criticize AIPAC and the Israeli government. Their support of #BDS only further infuriated the radical Right. The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement “works to end international support for Israel's oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.”

In an irony of arrogance, the act of bigotry and marginalization of political opposition by the Trump/Netanyahu regimes just gave #BDS its biggest boost by far. The Netanyahu regime’s flagrant intolerance is highlighted, showing the world their authoritarian essence, as they serve as minions and enforcers of Trump’s hate.

The Big MAGAt dumped a pile of stinking crap, and Netanyahu stepped right into it. Now his smeared shoes leave stains and odors like the rest of the MAGA Cult.

Speaker Pelosi sensibly responded, “Israel’s denial of entry to Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar is a sign of weakness, and beneath the dignity of the great State of Israel. The President’s statements about the Congresswomen are a sign of ignorance and disrespect, and beneath the dignity of the Office of the President.”

Even AIPAC needed to implement damage control:

“We disagree with Reps. Omar and Tlaib’s support for the anti-Israel and anti-peace BDS movement, along with Rep. Tlaib’s calls for a one-state solution. We also believe every member of Congress should be able to visit and experience our democratic ally Israel firsthand.”

Face it. Neither country presents a good face for democracy. But I’ll allow the possibility that good intentions were embedded into AIPAC’s frantic response to minimize alienation of the Democratic Party and millions of Americans.

Representative Omar spoke out for real democratic values in her statement:

 "It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government. Trump's Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected Members of Congress.

As a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, it is my job to conduct oversight of foreign aid from the United States of America and to legislate on human rights practices around the world. The irony of the 'only democracy' in the Middle East making such a decision is that it is both an insult to democratic values and a chilling response to a visit by government officials from an allied nation."

Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri offered permission for Representative Tlaib of Michigan to enter the country on “humanitarian grounds” to visit her grandmother, after she "committed to accept all the demands of Israel to respect the restrictions imposed on her in the visit, and she also promised not to advance boycotts against Israel during her visit."

The conditions and demands mean she is still banned from visiting as a member of the US Congress.


Representative Tlaib didn’t take the bait. "I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in--fighting against racism, oppression & injustice.... I can't allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me & use my love for my sity to bow down to their oppressive & racist policies."

Meanwhile, unmentioned by Republican bigots and their white nationalist leader in the White House, American Jews of conscience were confronting their extreme far Right evil first hand:

~~~
Video captures horrifying moment prison officer drove into Jewish activists protesting ICE

Jewish activists and allies with Never Again Action were staging a peaceful protest outside a Rhode Island detention facility that jails immigrants for the federal government when a man in a truck, reportedly a corrections officer at the facility, drove straight into the group and sent several to the hospital. “Local police officers working at the protest did not intervene,” activists told The Washington Post, “and the driver eventually walked into the prison after other guards pepper-sprayed the protesters.”

As dozens of activists sat peacefully on the street outside the Wyatt Detention Facility, a driver sped up into the crowd while blasting his horn. Activists screamed as others chanted, “Shame!” But the driver only kept pushing into activists, continuing to drive several feet even as they were clearly standing right in front of the truck. “The whole world is watching!” others chanted. “5 people went to the hospital,” Never Again Action said in a tweet, “including 2 who were hit by the truck.”

...Never Again Action’s Amy Anthony told Newsweek, “We have confirmed that the person driving the truck is a correctional officer who works for the detention facility. The driver was in his uniform when he hit the protesters. His rank and name were embroidered on his shirt and he was wearing a badge at the time."

~~~

But it’s not all bad news.

At least there are still many Americans free to visit Israel, unhindered by Netanyahu or Trump and his racist cult. These privileged Americans would be the tiki torch wielding Trump supporters who chanted, “JEWS WILL NOT REPLACE US!”

They get a pass, for they have gained presidential approval as “very fine people”.

The new “Aristocrats”


Stop me if you've heard this one.

Aspiring to break into show-biz, the family had just finished their audition for the talent agent. Their act was filled with vulgar, vile, and nasty routines involving incest, excrement and violence. 

After they finished, a sanitizing crew was called to clean up.

Upon returning from a hasty dash to the restroom, the nauseated agent asked, “What’s the name of your act, anyway?”

The father replied, “The Trumps”.

Better Blame ANTIFA, Amirite?


The slaughter continues unabated. The body count racks up more double digit death tolls.

And the violence is unaddressed by the Party of Trump and the NRA. In fact, the racist Big MAGAt doesn’t see a growing problem with white nationalist domestic terrorism. In fact he has dismantled efforts by federal law enforcement to address domestic white nationalist terrorism.

This violence has only increased during this vile reign of evil. That evil flows from the hateful rhetoric from the White House, from the rallies that foment racist hate like the Nuremberg rallies of the last century.

The Big MAGAt asked, “How do you stop these people?”  Someone replied, “Shoot them.” The Evil One chuckled and responded with, “That’s only in the Panhandle you can get away with that stuff.”

So...

Hell, yes, I blame Trump. He is evil. Period.

Hell yes, I blame white nationalists. They are evil. Period.

Hell, yes, I blame the NRA.They are evil. Period.

Hell, yes, I blame the manufacturers of weapons.

Hell, yes, I blame the racist MAGAt culture.

And hell, yes, I blame Hitler.

Trump, like Hitler, inflamed racism and hate.

White nationalist terrorism is directly inspired by the racist in the Oval Office. His bigotry is reflected, and his name is invoked, by the cold-blooded racist killers. The Party of Trump sees no blame in their ideology and in their leader.

No wonder they need to project their hate and terrorist threat unto ANTIFA, even though they have killed nobody.

If this evil is not defeated, our nation is absolutely finished.

Trump fuels hate for the press, liberals, Muslims, and minorities.

Trump is a pathological liar. Trump is a racist. Trump is willfully ignorant and indifferent to human suffering. Trump is fond of dictators and extra-judicial killings.

Hating minorities, Muslims, and the press, and even liberals, is evil.

Pathological lying is evil.

Racism is evil.

Willful ignorance and indifference to human suffering is evil.

Dictators and extra-judicial killings are evil.

Trump is evil.

Those who support Trump wittingly, or unwittingly, support evil. 

Every Nazi, Klan member, and white supremacist is a Republican and/or Trump supporter. 

How COULD they ALL be wrong?

True, That Is Accurate


Mueller Time, Part Two: From Chairman Adam Schiff's opening questions by the House Intelligence Committee.


SCHIFF:
...Director Mueller, your report describes a sweeping and systematic effort by Russia to influence our presidential election. Is that correct?

MUELLER:
That is correct.

SCHIFF:
And during the course of this Russian interference in the election, the Russians made outreach to the Trump campaign, did they not?

MUELLER:
That occurred over the course of - yes, that occurred.

SCHIFF:
In fact, the campaign welcomed the Russian help, did they not?

MUELLER:
I think we have - we report in our - in the report indications that that occurred, yes.

SCHIFF:
The president's son said when he was approached about dirt on Hillary Clinton that the Trump campaign would love it?

MUELLER:
That is generally what was said, yes.

SCHIFF:
The president himself called on the Russians to hack Hillary's emails?

MUELLER:
There was a statement by the president in those general lines.

SCHIFF:
Numerous times during the campaign the president praised the releases of the Russian-hacked emails through WikiLeaks?

MUELLER:
That did occur.

SCHIFF:
That language comes from Volume 1, page 54. Apart from the Russians wanting to help Trump win, several individuals associated with the Trump campaign were also trying to make money during the campaign and transition. Is that correct?

MUELLER:
That is true.

SCHIFF:
Paul Manafort was trying to make money or achieve debt forgiveness from a Russian oligarch?

MUELLER:
Generally that is accurate
.
SCHIFF:
Michael Flynn was trying to make money from Turkey?

MUELLER:
True.

SCHIFF:
Donald Trump was trying to make millions from a real estate deal in Moscow?

MUELLER:
To the extent you're talking about the hotel in Moscow?

SCHIFF:
Yes.

MUELLER:
Yes.

SCHIFF:
When your investigation looked into these matters, numerous Trump associates lied to your team, the grand jury, and to Congress?

MUELLER:
A number of persons that we interviewed in our investigation turns out did lie.

SCHIFF:
Mike Flynn lied?

MUELLER:
He was convicted of lying, yes.

SCHIFF:
George Papadopoulos was convicted of lying?

MUELLER:
True.

SCHIFF:
Paul Manafort was convicted of lying?

MUELLER:
True.

SCHIFF:
Paul Manafort was - in fact, went so far as to encourage other people to lie?

MUELLER:
That is accurate.

SCHIFF:
Manafort's deputy, Rick Gates, lied?

MUELLER:
That is accurate.

SCHIFF:
Michael Cohen, the president's lawyer, was indicted for lying?

MUELLER:
True.

SCHIFF:
He lied to stay on message with the president?

MUELLER:
Allegedly by him.

SCHIFF:
And when Donald Trump called your investigation a witch hunt, that was also false, was it not?

MUELLER:
I'd like to think so, yes.

SCHIFF:
Well, your investigation is not a witch hunt. Is...

MUELLER:
It is not a witch hunt.

SCHIFF:
When the president said the Russian interference was a hoax, that was false, wasn't it?

MUELLER:
True.

SCHIFF:
When the president said he had no business dealings with Russia, that was false, wasn't it?

MUELLER:
I'm not going to go into the details of the report that are along those lines.

SCHIFF:
You would consider a billion dollar deal to build a tower in Moscow to be business dealings, wouldn't you, Director Mueller?

MUELLER:
Absolutely.

SCHIFF:
In short, your investigation found evidence that Russia wanted to help Trump win the election, right?

MUELLER:
I think generally that would be accurate.

SCHIFF:
Russia informed campaign officials of that?

MUELLER:
I'm not certain to what conversation you're referring to.

SCHIFF:
Well, through an intermediary then informed Papadopoulos that they could help with the anonymous release of stolen emails?

MUELLER:
Accurate.

SCHIFF:
Russia committed federal crimes in order to help Donald Trump?

MUELLER:
When you're talking about computer crimes in the charge...

SCHIFF:
Yes.

MUELLER:
... in our case, absolutely.

SCHIFF:
The Trump campaign officials built their strategy - their messaging strategy around those stolen documents?

MUELLER:
Generally that's true.

SCHIFF:
And then they lied to cover it up.

MUELLER:
Generally, that's true.

SCHIFF:
Thank you.

That Is Correct


And....Mueller TIme:

~~~

LIEU: Thank you, director Mueller, for you long history of service to our country including your service as a Marine where you earned a brown star with a V device.

I’d like to now turn to the elements of obstruction of justice as applied to the president’s attempts to curtail your investigation. The first element of obstruction of justice requites and obstructive act, correct?

MUELLER: Correct.

LIEU: OK. I’d like to direct you to page 97 of Volume 2 of your report, and you wrote there on page 97, quote, “Sessions was being instructed to tell the special counsel to end the existing investigation into the president and his campaign,” unquote. That’s in the report, correct?

MUELLER: Correct.

LIEU: That would be evidence of an obstructive act because it would naturally obstruct their investigation, correct?

MUELLER: Correct.

LIEU: OK. Let’s turn now to the second element of the crime of obstruction of justice which requires a nexus to an official proceeding. Again, I’m going to direct you to page 97, the same page of Volume 2. And you wrote, quote, “by the time of the president’s initial one-on-one meeting with Lewandowski on June 19, 2017, the existence of a grand jury investigation supervised by the special counsel was public knowledge.” That’s in the report, correct?

MUELLER: Correct.

LIEU: That would constitute evidence of a nexus to an official proceeding because a grand jury investigation is an official proceeding, correct?

MUELLER: Yes.

LIEU: OK. I’d like to now turn to the final element of the crime of obstruction to justice. On that same page, page 97, do you see where there is the intent section on that page?

MUELLER: I do see that.

LIEU: All right. Would you be willing to read the first sentence?

MUELLER: And that was starting with…

LIEU: Substantial evidence.

MUELLER: Indicates that the president…

LIEU: If you read that first sentence, would you be willing to do that?

MUELLER: I’m happy to have you read it.

LIEU: OK. I will read it. You wrote, quote, “substantial evidence indicates that the president’s effort to have Sessions limit the scope of the special counsel’s investigation be featuring (ph) election interference was intended to prevent further investigative scrutiny of the president and his campaign’s conduct,” unquote. That’s in the report, correct?

MUELLER: That is in the report, and I rely what’s in the report to indicate what’s happened in the paragraphs that we’ve been discussing.

LIEU: Thank you. So to recap what we’ve heard, we have heard today that the president ordered former White House Counsel, Don McGahn, to fire you. The president ordered Don McGahn to then cover that up and create a false paper trail. And now we’ve heard the president ordered Corey Lewandowski to tell Jeff Sessions to limit your investigation so that he — you stop investigating the president.

I believe any reasonable person looking at these facts could conclude that all three elements of the crime of obstruction of justice have been met. And I’d like to ask you the reason, again, that you did not indict Donald Trump is because of OLC opinion stating that you cannot indict a sitting president, correct?

MUELLER: That is correct.
~~~
At the opening of that afternoon's Intelligence Committee hearing, Mueller amended his response:

“I wanted to go back to one thing that was said this morning by Mr. Lieu. It was said, and I quote, 'you didn't charge the president because of the OLC opinion.' That is not the correct way to say it.

As we say in the report and as I said in the opening, we did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime.” 

(Because of the OLC opinion, "a determination as to whether the president committed a crime" was not required.)

The Right Wing Authoritarian View of Mueller



An “anonymous” Right Wing Authoritarian missed Mueller’s sworn testimony to the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees. Imagine that.  

He asked me about what happened and I'm happy to discuss this.

It doesn’t take a stable genius to understand the Right Wing Authoritarian attitude towards Mueller. Their Right Wing Authoritarian leader hates Mueller, so his Right Wing Authoritarian followers must also embrace that hate. 

He and his Right Wing Authoritarian followers think nothing will come of Mueller's report and appearance before Congress, and that seems to amuse them.

Perhaps they have never heard the expression, “He who laughs last, laughs best.”

 ~~~~

Rev. Dave,

What happened to Mueller Time?

LOL

 ~~~

As an ordained minister, I am compelled to be honest as possible with fellow human beings, no matter how deplorable, ignorant, angry, hateful, racist, and delusional they may be. 

This is what happened, and how it is viewed by Right Wing Authoritarian personalities.

 ~~~
Anonymous,

We understand your confusion.

Mueller spoke words Right Wing Authoritarians cannot understand. It's called Truth.

He said his report was “not a hoax". Not a hoax? The authoritarian mind cannot wrap itself around that concept, can it?

This is something Right Wing Authoritarians will never mentally process, due to cult indoctrination that tells them there was no Russian interference in the election. (Or they don't care.) The same cult indoctrination tells them Trump didn't welcome Russian support. (Or they don't care.) Never mind his criminal toadies are locked up for lying to the FBI about their contacts with Russians.

Right Wing Authoritarians will never understand their authoritarian leader lied about his business with Russia, either. (Or they don't care.) Their brains are a vacuum that absorbs only MAGAt Republican lies, fake news from FOX(R), the daily caller, and hate radio.

So of course Right Wing Authoritarians cannot understand Mueller also confirmed Trump's acts to obstruct justice and interfere with the investigation into Russian intrusion in our election. (Or they don't care.)

"He(Putin) said he didn't do it", oozed the boot-licking Right Wing Authoritarian leader at the Helsinki summit, as he defended the Russian authoritarian leader’s lie. Never before has a US president so openly betrayed our country. Every decent and patriotic American was horrified, except the loyal authoritarian followers. (They don’t care.)

This is because they don’t love our country as much as they openly disdain decency, truth, and democracy.

The Right Wing Authoritarian leader respects only dictators and fellow authoritarian leaders. He's only the most dishonest, corrupt, and criminal racist ever to befoul the White House and betray our nation.

This appeals to Right Wing Authoritarian followers though, because their Right Wing Authoritarian leader hates the same people they do. That's what's most important. Right Wing Authoritarians hate minorities and immigrants for being different. They hate educators, scientists and journalists as well, because they provide information and facts that challenge and disprove their Right Wing Authoritarian cult indoctrination.

This infuriates Right Wing Authoritarian followers and their leader. The anger and hatred form their bond.

And this is why they love him, and believe in him as their messiah and savior sent to make America white again.

Because of an unwise Department of Justice rule, the Right Wing Authoritarian leader is above the law while in the Oval Office. But Mueller confirmed he can be indicted for his many crimes after he loses the election. (And they don’t care...for now.)

Right Wing Authoritarians will be even more angry and hateful when that happens.

If indictments don't happen, then we have a fascist dictatorship. Then Right Wing Authoritarians will be very happy...until the shit hits the fan, as it always does under tyrants.

And as always, Right Wing Authoritarians will not understand any of this reply. (Or they don't care.)

But they'll eventually learn what happened to Mueller Time, by the howls of rage and incessant whining from their precious fake president. 

Mueller’s facts pertaining to the Right Wing Authoritarian leader’s welcoming Russian help and criminal attempts to cover it up are now in the Congressional Record. The facts and evidence are documented for future historians. That’s what happened to the Mueller Report. Right Wing Authoritarians will deny the facts and evidence, of course.

Historical evidence has been recorded, showing the Party of Trump’s unctuous treachery and complicity in their Right Wing Authoritarian leader’s criminal betrayal of our country.

Just as there are no buildings, airports, streets, or highways named after Nixon or Hitler, none will be named after Trump.

His name is already being taken down from buildings all over the world. Soon the Right Wing Authoritarian leader’s name will be found only in the past.

And sooner yet, we'll see his mugshot featured in the news media he hates.

Then the majority of Americans will LOL.

All thanks to the Mueller Report.

Mueller Report: Simple Summaries


Mueller Time is upon us. 

Will the rule of law prevail over the rule of Trump? Will the consequences contribute to the arc of justice? Or will it result in the nation's accelerated decline into authoritarianism?

The future of our Republic is at stake. 

I hope I’m not exaggerating the importance of his testimony when Mueller appears before the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees this week.

One thing is certain, our nervous and fearful eyes will be glued to our TV screens.

And perhaps even more nervous and fearful, and ANGRY, eyes will be viewing from the White House.

Trump’s personal Attorney General wants to muzzle Mueller, and instructed him to answer only "within the boundaries of your public report, because matters within the scope of your investigation were covered by executive privilege."

This tells us Trump’s Cartel is nervous already.

I predict more Americans will finally learn what was in Mueller’s report. Too few have read any of it, and most have read none of it.

No sane person should be unfamiliar with Mueller's findings.

Maybe a few simple summaries of the Mueller Report can help.

These can be shared with those who happen to be just tuning in, or with friends and family who may be low information voters, or may have attention deficit issues.

The Washington Post’s Margaret Sullivan summarized the Mueller Report’s conclusion:

“While the report did not find sufficient evidence to bring charges of criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, it stated that Trump could not be exonerated of trying to obstruct the investigation itself. And it said that Mueller’s conclusions were informed by his reasoning that Trump couldn’t be indicted, at least partly because of a Justice Department opinion against prosecuting a current president.”

Elizabeth Warren summarized the Mueller Report’s content:

“Part 1, a hostile foreign government attacked our 2016 elections for the purpose of getting Donald Trump elected.

Part 2, then-candidate Donald Trump welcomed that help.

And Part 3, when the federal government tried to investigate Part 1 and Part 2, Donald Trump as president delayed, deflected, moved, fired and did everything he could to obstruct justice.”

And finally Mueller’s own words:

Russian intelligence officers who were part of the Russian military launched a concerted attack on our political system.

That is also a reason we investigated efforts to obstruct the investigation. The matters we investigated were of paramount importance. It was critical for us to obtain full and accurate information from every person we questioned. When a subject of an investigation obstructs that investigation or lies to investigators, it strikes at the core of the government's effort to find the truth and hold wrongdoers accountable.

The report has two parts addressing the two main issues we were asked to investigate.

The first volume of the report details numerous efforts emanating from Russia to influence the election. This volume includes a discussion of the Trump campaign's response to this activity, as well as our conclusion that there was insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy.

And in the second volume, the report describes the results and analysis of our obstruction of justice investigation involving the President.

As set forth in our report, after that investigation, if we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that

 I will close by reiterating the central allegation of our indictments—that there were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election.

That allegation deserves the attention of every American.

If this is still too much to mentally process, here is the bottom line:

He colluded with Russian interferenceHe obstructed Justice.

Putin's Puppet Day


Happy First Anniversary!


"My people came to me, Dan Coats came to me and some others they said they think it’s Russia. I have President Putin, he just said it’s not Russia. I will say this. I don’t see any reason why it would be...”



A day of infamy and betrayal. 

You're with Trump or you're with America now.

Republican Redundancy

“Go back to Africa!” "Go back to Mexico!"

This is the theme we have heard from every white nationalist, NAZI, Klansman and white racist since 1865. 

This racism is now the rhetoric of the Oval Office. It was directed by the Big MAGAt's tweet at four Democratic women of color, suggesting they, "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez [D-NY], Ilhan Omar [D-MN], Ayanna Pressley [D-MA], and Rashida Tlaib [D-MI] happen to be American citizens.

Never mind a “totally broken and crime infested place” was the Big MAGAt's description of an America that needed to be made great again.

The hypocrisy is obvious to rational people, of course, but this isn’t the issue.  Con-servatives and Republicans will always be hypocrites. Count on it. 

Now we know they are deeply racist as well. I’m tired of hearing their excuses for Trump’s racism.

They voted for the racist Birther in the first place. That alone tells us they don’t have a problem with racism. Now those Con-servatives and elected Republicans are either silent, or openly supportive of Trump’s racism. Maybe one or two Black Republicans will call it racism, but will they denounce their party for its descent into abetting white nationalism?

Trump’s state media sycophants at FOX praised the racist MAGAt for being “very comedic” and "making an important point," while laughing along as they read the vile tweet.

Of course they did. 

After all, they are racist Republicans and con-servative Christians. And there's NOTHING Christian about MAGAts. Their hate violates and rejects the Two Commandments of Christ. Being racist hypocrites in Trump’s cult cancels their faith. 

Let me give them a preview of the judgment their religion tells them they will eventually face:

Sorry, MAGAts, Jesus didn't send Trump to save America. And by your own creed you are all Hell-bound. You serve the "Father of lies" by serving his evil Earthly counterpart. You have chosen hate and racism over love and compassion.

You may hate me, but with this judgment comes my forgiveness for those who repent. Otherwise you can all go to Hell.

- Reverend Dave

Now, where was I?

Shortly afterwards, Lindsay Graham, the most unctuous and odious man in the Senate piled on, accusing the four women of being “socialists” and “communists who hate Israel and America”.

Of course he did. He is a racist puke and liar, too. The racist MAGAt in the White House rewarded his toadie's fealty. “We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of Communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own Country..."

This was followed by another dog-whistle to his white supremacist cult.  "It doesn't concern me because many people agree with me. And all I'm saying — they want to leave, they can leave."

The Nazis, and the Klan, and every white racist in the country have been validated and praised by their Bigoted Big MAGAt. They won't even hide or dodge the facts anymore. The message is clearly "Make America white again".

White nationalist spokesman Tucker Carlson declared Rep. Ilhan Omar is “living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country” and that she is “a living fire alarm, a warning to the rest of us that we better change our immigration, or else.” 

Carlson claimed that Omar “has undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people” and that “maybe that's our fault for asking too little of our immigrants.”

And that is just a hint of his white supremacist rhetoric.

"The creation of America was probably the greatest gift given to black people in 3,000 years."

A guest of Tucker Carlson stated, If Rep. Ilhan Omar "wasn't a member of congress, she would be a member of the KKK"

This racist was echoed by Todd Starnes, another white supremacist at FOX(R):

I title my book Culture Jihad because it's a call to arms for every freedom-loving American -- Christians and Jews, straight and gay, black and white and brown. Folks, we have got a responsibility to stand up to the Orwellian tactics of the leftists and defend liberty, otherwise the culture jihadists will conquer the nation.

As for Congresswoman Omar and other immigrants who find that America, well, just doesn't meet their standards of living, might I just suggest this -- how about a one way plane ticket back to whatever third-world hellhole you came from? And don't let the door hit you where the good lord split you.

“Culture Jihadists”. There’s some blatant projection only a racist can share.

This is an evil that infects a large percentage of the US population, and it must be called out for what it is.

These facts need to be stated every day.

Trump fuels hate. Trump is a pathological liar. Trump is a racist. Trump is willfully ignorant and indifferent to human suffering. Trump is fond of dictators and extra-judicial killings.

Hate is evil. Pathological lying is evil. Racism is evil. Willful ignorance and indifference to human suffering is evil. Dictators and extra-judicial killings are evil.

Bottom line: Trump is evil. He is rotten and corrupt to the core. And this applies to his party and his supporters.

Those who support Trump wittingly, or unwittingly, support evil.

I’ve had it with the lot of them. Anyone who cannot loudly condemn Trump for his racism is abetting racism. And abetting racism IS racism.


The term “Racist Republicans” has become redundant.
