Pro Collusion! Pro Collusion!

Russia, if you're still listening... The Supreme MAGAt has spoken.

I think you might want to listen, there isn't anything wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country, Norway, (or Russia, or China, or North Korea, etc.) “we have information on your opponent”-- oh, I think I'd want to hear it.,, It's not an interference, they have information -- I think I'd take it...It's called oppo research...The FBI director is wrong. 

This is how America is great again. He is not only above the law, he IS the law. The king has spoken.

Get over it, libs. Get over it, Democrats. Get over it Congress, Get over it, Justice Department. Get over it, FBI. Get over it, courts. Get over it, Constitution.

And get over it, Founders. 

"An avaricious man might be tempted to betray the interests of the state to the acquisition of wealth. An ambitious man might make his own aggrandizement, by the aid of a foreign power, the price of his treachery to his constituents."

- Federalist Paper No. 75

"Fake Founders", amirite?

He is risen! America’s Best Christian, Mrs. Betty Bowers reminds us: “Today is the day that Evangelicals celebrate the birth of their Lord and Savior.”

Merry Trumpmas, everybody!

The Longest Day

Seventy-five years ago today the U.S. and our Allies undertook the greatest battle for freedom and invaded Nazi-occupied France. 

They knew the risk and challenge. General Eisenhower was prepared to accept responsibility if the invasion failed, as any great leader would.

Germany's Field Marshall Erwin Rommel comprehended the significance. The invasion of Europe would begin with the "Longest Day".

The Normandy landings by air and sea were hard fought, with thousands of allied troops paying the ultimate sacrifice to liberate Europe from fascism. 

Within a year, Nazi Germany was defeated.

How the wheel turns. 

Today the "America First" president has undermined the alliance born of that conflict. Our Right Wing Authoritarian leader demeans and bickers with allies as he praises tyrants. 

But that's all fine with the clueless dupes and empowered white nationalists of his base. Their Orange Fuhrer can do no wrong. Right Wing Authoritarian followers are loyal to their authoritarian leader, every bit as loyal as Hitler's followers.

The Leader proved he understands this, by bragging he could shoot someone down in the street and his cult would remain loyal. 

White nationalists, Klansmen, and Nazis love him. 

Many would shout, "Hail, Trump". Jews and Blacks would be gunned down by some of them. Liberals would be run over. Bombs would be sent to the targets of their Leader's rage and anger.

They share the Leader's white nationalism, and demand the imprisonment of political opponents. They join their Leader in accusing his opponents and critics of treason.

Trumpism clearly shares these doctrines with Nazism. 

We don't want to find out how far they would follow him into totalitarianism. We're seeing quite enough already.

And they won't relinquish power willingly. Expect them to challenge the election if their Tangerine Tyrant loses. This is a long way from over.

They are fanatics.

They would rather praise their leader than honor the warriors against fascism.

Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, gushed, "We are celebrating the anniversary, 75 years of D-Day. This is the time where we should be celebrating our president, the great achievements of America, and I don’t think the American people like the constant negativity.” 

Right. And she would probably just love to crack the champagne bottle at the launching of the newest aircraft carrier, "USS Bone-Spurs". 

Just ask that woman what she thinks of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, our greatest wartime president since Lincoln. She would call him a socialist commie like all the other fascists did. Just like they accuse Democrats of being socialists and commies today. 

I'm pretty sure she's another "very fine person".

The German Nazis were defeated, but their heirs live on. Understand this. The struggle against fascism never ends. 

But freedom-loving people of the world will always honor those who served, and remember the Longest Day, as long as we survive and defeat the "Longest Presidency".

A final word:

After the 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."

What Is A Sociopath?

A public service message. 

What is a sociopath?  It's not a "crazy" or psychotic person. It's not someone holding delusional beliefs that are provably false. This isn't someone suffering from auditory or visual hallucinations from a neurological or mental illness. It's not mania or depression. 

Some argue that sociopaths are mentally ill, but it is different from any treatable mental illness. 

"Sociopath" is a term for a person with an antisocial personality disorder. If you may be wondering if someone is a sociopath, here is the information you need to understand this personality disorder.

This is from the Mayo Clinic:

Antisocial Personality Disorder


Antisocial personality disorder, sometimes called sociopathy, is a mental condition in which a person consistently shows no regard for right and wrong and ignores the rights and feelings of others. People with antisocial personality disorder tend to antagonize, manipulate or treat others harshly or with callous indifference. They show no guilt or remorse for their behavior.
Individuals with antisocial personality disorder often violate the law, becoming criminals. They may lie, behave violently or impulsively, and have problems with drug and alcohol use. Because of these characteristics, people with this disorder typically can't fulfill responsibilities related to family, work or school.


Antisocial personality disorder signs and symptoms may include:

Disregard for right and wrong

Persistent lying or deceit to exploit others

Being callous, cynical and disrespectful of others

Using charm or wit to manipulate others for personal gain or personal pleasure

Arrogance, a sense of superiority and being extremely opinionated

Recurring problems with the law, including criminal behavior

Repeatedly violating the rights of others through intimidation and dishonesty

Impulsiveness or failure to plan ahead

Hostility, significant irritability, agitation, aggression or violence

Lack of empathy for others and lack of remorse about harming others

Unnecessary risk-taking or dangerous behavior with no regard for the safety of self or others

Poor or abusive relationships

Failure to consider the negative consequences of behavior or learn from them

Being consistently irresponsible and repeatedly failing to fulfill work or financial obligations


Can you imagine someone displaying most of those symptoms? They are usually not quite as obvious as we would like. A lack of conscience is easily concealed by skilled or relentless deceit. 

Although they are bullies and cruel, they are often charming or convincing manipulators, easily duping people to get what they want from them. 

Not that anyone comes to mind...besides Capone, Genovese, Gotti, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Putin, Kim Jong Un, Mohammad Bin Salman, Duterte, and all their minions, thugs and henchmen...and their admirers, of course.
