In a bizarre tweet that was quickly removed, Brit Hume of Fox News assured the world on Tuesday night that he was not fantasizing about President Donald Trump’s penis. Hume, a former Fox News anchor and current senior political analyst, was defending Trump’s health exam results on social media from those casting doubt on the president’s listed height of 6′3″ and weight of 239 pounds (one pound short of the number that would be considered obese). “I’m his height and weigh about 190. He looks about 50 pounds heavier than I am,” Hume wrote in reply to one critic. “And I’m inclined to believe his highly regarded doctor over some eyeball estimates made from a distance.”
There’s little doubt but that the past year has had a certain clown car quality to it. No reasonable person could accuse this administration of being thoroughly professional and intensely focused on making America a better place. It’s been a shitshow 24/7, distraction after cluster$#%& after disaster looking for a place to happen. And they’ve happened on a daily basis.
Fortunately, there have been more than a few humorous, if banal, “WTF??” moments. Brit Hume musing about Donald Trump’s penis would certainly qualify as one of them, no? Now I just have to figure out how to clear that disturbing mental image from my brain. Continue reading
AND I SUPPOSE NOW YOU’LL BE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO BLAME YOUR IRRESPONSIBILITY AND HUBRIS ON?
White supremacists in the United States killed more than twice as many people in 2017 as they did the year before, and were responsible for far more murders than domestic Islamic extremists, helping make 2017 the fifth deadliest year on record for extremist violence in America, a new report states. The report, “Murder and Extremism in the United States in 2017,” published Tuesday by the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, said extremists killed 34 people last year. Twenty of those victims — or 59 percent — were killed by right-wing extremists, a designation that includes white supremacists, members of the so-called “alt-right” and “alt-lite,” and members of the anti-government militia movement. Of the 34 people killed, 18 were murdered by white supremacists, marking a 157 percent increase over the 7 people killed by white supremacists in 2016. That’s also double the number of people killed by domestic Islamic extremists in 2017. Nine people were killed by domestic Islamic extremists last year, according to the report, eight of whom died in a single attack in New York.
I can almost hear the rebuttals now: “Donald Trump didn’t kill those people!!” “Donald Trump isn’t a racist!!” “Donald Trump is making America great again!!”
Believe what you will, but isn’t it interesting that White supremacists killed twice as many people in 2017 as they did in 2016? Donald Trump won the Presidency in large part by manipulating and focusing the anger and hatred of disaffected White voters on those they could blame for their circumstances- The Other. Be they Latinos, African-Americans, or Muslims, low information White Americans are well-versed at playing the victim. The people who claim to be all about personal responsibility are all about holding others responsible for what they perceive as their sorry lot in life. Continue reading
Drop the chalupa and listen up, Taco Bell — Charlie Daniels has a message for you. Namely, that it’s a mistake to take the Illuminati lightly. “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” musician and noted conservative Daniels took some time out of his evening on Monday to issue a grave warning to the fast-food chain…. While Daniels failed to elaborate on his warning — perhaps out of concern for saying too much — the musician was presumably referring to Taco Bell’s recent “Belluminati” campaign, which employs conspiracy-themed language and imagery to reveal the “powerful connection between the dollar and Taco Bell” — namely, a line of menu items available for $1 each.
I don’t know about you, but I have to believe that a secretive group bent on world domination has bigger conquests on their collective minds than the $1 menu at a fast food chain serving bad faux Mexican food. There are larger prizes to be pursued- the world’s financial system, f’rinstance- and which are far more worthy targets of the power the Illuminati allegedly wields. Fast food tacos- or variations thereof- would seem to be low-hanging fruit hardly worthy of their attention. Then again, what do I know?? Perhaps the reason they’re the Illuminati is that they wield powers and possess information I can’t begin to know.
‘Course, I do have to love Charlie Daniels’ commitment to saving the world from itself…or could it be that he’s part of the Illuminati’s plot to lull us into complacency as they slowly and inexorably take over the world? Then again, maybe they’re just tacos…and bad ones at that. Remember, the truth is out there…and it may well exist merely to wreak havoc on your digestive tract.
IMMIGRATION REFORM THAT WILL MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN
[I]t became clear that his immigration policy would primarily be shaped around ejecting as many nonwhite, non-English-speaking people as possible. The White House has systematically targeted certain groups of immigrants who have legal status for deportation, through the travel ban placed on Muslim countries (which initially applied to green card holders), rescinding protections for DACA recipients and more recently the targeted attacks on immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS), who are allowed to live in the United States under a law signed by George H.W. Bush in 1991.
I should begin by making it clear I understand what the “temporary” in Temporary Protected Status (TPS) means. TPS was intended as a lifeline for foreign nationals whose homeland had suffered devastating natural disasters. 200,000 Salvadorans have been in the US under a law signed by George H.W. Bush in 1991. They’re now facing the possibility of being forced to return to a nation that may no longer be home.
Yes, Salvadorans were granted TEMPORARY Protected Status…but after 17 years, the U.S. has become home to many of them. Many have become Americans in everything but a strictly legal sense- they have homes, jobs, and families here. They pay taxes and have been constructive additions to America. Now the Trump Administration is using their TPS status as a lever to force them to leave.
What if we were talking about 200,000 Norwegians? Continue reading
