Trump’s House Of Lies

February 17th, 2017

Trump Administration LiesFeb 17, 2017  Be it Kellyanne Conway’s alternative facts, Sean Spencer’s impression of Melissa McCarthy, Michael Flynn’s faulty memory or The Donald’s self-aggrandizing denial of reality, the truth is all too often ignored, covered up, or denied. Crowd size, release of income tax returns, muslims celebrating in New Jersey on 911, birther information, draining the swamp, electoral victory margin, knowing more than the generals, and unemployment statistics are just a small sampling of some areas where our “Liar In Chief” has set the truth meter to new lows.

Trump muslim banFeb 11, 2017  Is Trump afraid of little girls?  To keep America safe from Radical Islam, Trump continues to push the constitutional envelope with his radical Muslim Ban. Muslims of all ages, sizes and genders where stopped. At least he’s a gentleman, you know, women and children first…to be detained and deported.

The Irony Of Trump’s Question, “Is This Nazi Germany?”

Alt Reich

A man with a funny haircut becomes the head of a nation by the demonization of non-Christian, non-white people. Sound familiar?

We all know how well the other authoritarian demagogue’s regime worked out. I’m not predicting Heir Trump will start occupying other countries or killing jewish people. Hopefully, the only empire Trump wants to build is his own business. He and his Republican allies will however cause the deaths of millions of (disproportionately non-white) citizens  through the repeal of Obamacare and the privatization of Medicaid and Medicare. I do think it’s fair to say Trump’s closest advisers, Steve Bannon and Jefferson Beauregard Sessions are to say the least, white supremacy friendly. (more…)

Do We Still Live In A Democracy?

Is America still a democracy?

The Will Of The People vs That Of The People They Elected

The election is finally over. With the help of the Electoral College and gerrymandering, the Republican party will control the presidency, the congress, and soon the Supreme Court. But does the Republican party represent the values of the majority of Americans? To answer that, let’s compare the Republican platform with national polls issue by issue.

Electoral College

According to a Quinnipiac University poll, Americans are in favor of deciding the future Presidential elections by direct popular vote 53%-34%. The last two Republican Presidents having won without winning the popular vote, the GOP is of course, against it.

Abortion

Americans polled support Roe v Wade 67% – 30%. The GOP is famously against it. (more…)
