Hey Murph! What’s up?

hiya murph, Beatlex! happy with Der Fuhrer’s press ban?

Do you think Trump thinks far enough ahead to think about how Dems could control one of the houses of Congress in 2018 and go after his traitorous ass?
AdLib 3 hours ago
Ad,Trump is a clear and dangerous threat to the world.I am really concerned

lovely comments from Japanese Interpreters of trump’s insanities. they daren’t translate literally because the audience would think THEY were insane!
pinkpantheroz

I do think we will start seeing a bunch of Trump Exhaustion from many voters that voted for him. Not the hard core ones but the ones conned into voting for him. Hey, he’s already down too 38% approval in the polls! Hoow low can he go?!
AdLib 3 hours ago
I literally get a chill when I hear him begin to speak.This guy is not right,he is insane

Hi All….What is Up? Well, on Wednesday I went to St. Louis to take part in the cleanup at Chesed Shel Emeth and the interfaith vigil that followed. Back there tomorrow for part II. Jews, Muslims, Christians in impressive numbers.

Ad, i think there is a long way to go before even ordinary GOP’ers are willing to admit they made a terrible mistake
pinkpantheroz

What are your thoughts about the “Russian Connection”? Anyone?
Beatlex

Hey Murph. Great to see the Muslim community help fix the Jewish Cemetery. Wonder if Fox news covered that?
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
True but the Vox.com article I read that was from last year, explaining the authoritarian mentality of his voters kind of explains all of this.

AdLib 3 hours ago
Oops! What is the topic Ad?
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Very cool Murph. I’ll bet you didn’t see any people there wearing MAGA hats.
AdLib 3 hours ago
PPO I went because a Muslim friend invited me, a Christian, to be a part of his cleanup crew. He is a oncologist (mine) and a leader of a large local “Mosque”
MurphTheSurf3

Very well done, Murph! Keep it up.
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
PPO – They don’t care. Repubs are such selfish pigs, the oonly thing that will pry them off the Trump train is the Resistance movement hammering them and Trump dragging their polling way down as well. They have no conscience, that much is clear.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Is Trump the second coming of Hitler? Hyperbole? maybe
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Beatlex – I think that if all the leads are followed, it will show Trump’s campaign colluding with the Russians to steal the election and prove Trump to be a traitor too the nation.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Ad….there was a shared reverence there….part of what we were instructed to do was to pray at each site before we began to gather the parts of the monuments to put into boxes linked to each site. Something about a Jews, Muslims, and Christians holding hands in prayerful dignity…that, Mr. Trump, IS America.
MurphTheSurf3

beat, the pattern is pretty much the same. We once had a politician here who would rabble rouse. He called it ‘Feeding the Chooks” (Chickens) and he kept being re-elected!

Oz yes,but I posit that Trump is real threat,to the world
Beatlex

Beatlex – I usually put aside comparing anyone or thing to Hitler and Nazis…but Bannon is a neo-Nazi supporter and he and Trump are trying seize dictatorial power as they try to turn Americans into minority hating nationalists. Who does that sound like?
AdLib 3 hours ago
Ad-Exactly.If it walks lke a duck….

The rise of American authoritarianism
A niche group of political scientists may have uncovered what’s driving Donald Trump’s ascent. What they found has implications that go well beyond 2016.

AdLib 3 hours ago
Ad,bookmarked!
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Basically, in the grip of fear of physical and economic harm, a portion of a society becomes authoritarian and seeks a strong man leader who will stoomp down minoorities and especially immigrants who they see as threats.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Here is a photo of the start of the 6 block long line waiting to get into CPAC to see Trump….per Trump in his address to the crowd.

MurphTheSurf3

The article explains, this has been growing in the GOP for a loong time and their polarization of people, instilling fear and hatred has led to this.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Murph – Yeah but if Trump lies are contradicted, isn’t that “fake news”?
AdLib 3 hours ago
Wow, what a Yuuuuuge crowd! Almost as big as at his inauguration

http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2017/02/24/fake-news-media-outrage-white-house-exclusion/

Media Outrage over White House ‘Exclusion’ is Fake News – Breitbart
Exclusion is a valid question but the New York Times’ claim that “[n]othing like this has ever happened” is simply false — or “fake news.”

MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
beat, scaring the ignorant and keeping them less educated has been the center of GOP strategy for years
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
OZ,yes,it works for them
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Murph – The game is very limited, to use this propaganda to coompletely discredit all the facts the press puts out to expose his sins and crimes. But that will only woork with the minority of voters who support him already.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Good evening, all.
glenn

glenn!
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
Beatlex, very sorry to hear about your friend.
glenn

3 hours ago
Bannon said that the Media would be sorry they crossed the lines he and his ilk set in place. Trump doubled down on his “enemy of the people” label of mainstream media outlets. And then Spicer acted on it. Cuts six credentialed outlets out of the herd…..that’ll show them.
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
Beatlex – I agree, I think Dems would be best advised noot to chase after the poorly educated who, because of it, prefer authoritarians and just focus on bringing the independents and marginally Trump-supporting voters. The uneducated are beyond reasoning, fuck ’em.
AdLib 3 hours ago
As Trump slips even further into strongman category,he bans “some” news agencies…discuss…
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Murph–sounds like an All-American gathering you attended. As you say, that is America!
glenn

3 hours ago
So Breitbart is trying to say that the press actually doesn’t care about being excluded by Trump? Their logic can only be understood by the uneducated.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Thx glenn
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Hey PPO!
glenn

3 hours ago
I’d prefer it if it were the media who boycott Bannon and the White House mouthpieces. without mainstream outlets for their shite, they’ll soon be irrelevant
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
Murph – I know they’re trying to say Spicer did that but it was Trump and Bannon who ordered him to exclude many in the press. Easy way too recognize if Trump admin are lying, their lips are moving.
AdLib 3 hours ago
The press should boycott 45’s press conferences! I can’t recall which press members did not attend today due to the ban of the others, but ALL news outlets should boycott!
glenn

3 hours ago
Spicer does what he is told….
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
PPO–great minds think alike. I was typing my response when yours popped up!
glenn

3 hours ago
Thinking about it, they don’t actually NEED the WH press room. The place leaks like a sieve and they can report anyway.
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
Glenn ALL America
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
PPO – I thought the same thing, that the press should boycott Trump’s and his admin’s press conferences but what seems to make him more nuts is them being around and asking questions that prove him to be a liar and con artist. So I think they should just go after him harder.
AdLib 3 hours ago
As someone on another site said today, the press should start doing some investigative reporting, not just parroting what 45 gives out!
glenn

3 hours ago
Murph–Yup. ALL America!
glenn

3 hours ago
glenn – I would agree that if some of the press is excluded, all press should refuse to cover the event.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Glenn….send a rep of the WH Correspondents Association and watch the news feed. No questions.
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
Ad–the press should also start reporting on what congress is doing and just ignore 45. I’m so sick of reading his twit fits.
glenn

3 hours ago
Ad, agree, but its hard for all those left-wing liberals still cluttering up the press room to join their colleagues. Snark!
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
glenn – That is the positive thing coming out of all of this, journalists are heroes and cool again. They are investigating again and being persistent. The era of parroting propaganda is ending, no oone is interested in tuning that in except the RW morons goosestepping behind Trump. And they are a minority.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Murph–That would work. Send one person. Speaking of the WHCA, whom do you think will be the featured speaker at this year’s WHCA dinner?
glenn

3 hours ago
There is conversation about not inviting Trump.
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
It will be interesting White House Correspondents Dinner!
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
You guys never answered my Q Is Trump’s ties with Russia smoke or fire??
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Ad–Not sure that journalists are “heroes”, but I do think the press doing journalism again is a very positive thing!
glenn

3 hours ago
Murph – Actually, at Trump’s press conference, I think the way they went after Trump as a liar was very powerful and damaging. Asking Trump more and more pointed questions is making him go mental.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Beatle…fire….
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
Beatlex–fire…too much of it to ignore!
glenn

3 hours ago
Murph-Yes!
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Agree, Murph
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
glenn – But they’re advancing the portrayal of Trump as a lunatic traitor, I like that. And I don’t want him impeached anymore, let voters have a choice between Trump and sanity in 2018 and 2020.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Ad–asking 45 questions about what he says is making him go mental! The press needs to keep applying the pressure!
glenn

3 hours ago
Ad I suppose…but Trump so desires the attention…let him know that there is a price to pay for cutting out the press…they may cut out on you.
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
Impeach that Mother ++ckers Ass! before he does real damage,I really believe that
Beatlex

3 hours ago
With you on that, Beatlex. But who has the cojones to start proceedings?
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
Beatle the 25th amendment is a faster route.
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
Murph,yes,he is crazy
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Doesn’t it make more sense to invite Trump and tear him to shreds? Which comedian should host? Sam Bee is holding a parallel event so maybe John Oliver?
AdLib 3 hours ago
Murph, can a case be made under the 25th that a pathological liar qualifies as being unfit? if so it’s already a slam dunk
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
Beatlex – But do we want a less obvious lunatic in the form of Pence as President? We need the crazy oof Trump to drive The Resistance to take back Congress and the WH.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Ad, Jon Stewart!
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
Ad–maybe–as far as a choice in 2018 goes. But the Dems have to put up some good candidates. The Dems are losing their minds with 45 in office; but most people still say he’s better than Hillary. That was the dilemma in this past election; despite what we know to be true (that HRC would have made a much better president than the one we have now), most people I speak to still say that this president was a vote against HRC. And…they’re very happy about it!
glenn

3 hours ago
Lesser of 2 and a half evils Ad
Beatlex

3 hours ago
PPO…all that is needed is for the VP plus 50 percent of the cabinet to think he is unfit. Period. And then a majority of the House to agree if appealed.
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
PPO – But why would Pence and the Repub Congress want to impeach their president and alienate his supporters? Never happen.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Ad-yes,they are in a bit of a pickle! Dump Trump? LOL
Beatlex

3 hours ago
PPO – I didn’t mention Stewart because I thought that would be like asking for too much. But yes, above all, Stewart would be the most incredible. Or Colbert again?
AdLib 3 hours ago
Pence and the GOP will do what they have to to avoid a GOP washout….nothing to do with what is right….just necessary.
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
I just hope and pray that Fuckface isn’t around when the next global disaster happens. He’ll just tweet SAD!
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
Ad–that is the essential question, isn’t it? I doubt very seriously that this congress will impeach 45. That’s why it’s so important for Dems to advance good candidates for Congress. We need to take control of Congress before we can get anything else done.
glenn

3 hours ago
Ad, I think that Jon would happily leave his farm for that gig.
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
OZ! You slayed me with that one”reality”
Beatlex

3 hours ago
PPO–Plus, it will only give him an excuse to fear monger some more, and impose even more restrictions on immigrants, refugees, and the American public.
glenn

3 hours ago
glenn – I don’t know that I’d agree that most people still think Trump better than Hillary but I do agree that Dems need to choose genuine Progressives who fight for the 99% (and aren’t tied to Wall Street and corporations).
AdLib 3 hours ago
So who do you think will win the DNC Chair tomorrow?
AdLib 3 hours ago
Where the +u+k were all of these R town haller bawlers when they were needed to stop this fiasco?
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Murph – Right, 50% of the cabinet. Ain’t no way you could get 50% of the most degenerate cabinet to turn against their sponsor.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Perez Full timer, Hispanic, the minority that shows up.
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
Ad–When you live in a red state, like I do, then most people think 45 is better. Hopefully, when it comes around to the next presidential election, most people will agree that a Dem is better than 45. However, in my neck of the woods; HRC is still the devil incarnate!
glenn

3 hours ago
Ad…I think that if it comes down to saving their necks…they will do it.
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
Murph – I don’t think so. Trump is the one who has the support of the diehard goosesteppers. Pence is not a replacement for him and they would attack the GOP if the GOP removed Trump.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Murph–but, right now, the repubs don’t have to worry about “saving their necks”. Despite the town halls, they will still do what they want, and 45 will sign whatever legislation they put in front of him. Well, any legislation that bannon agrees with anyway.
glenn

3 hours ago
If the House and Senate are imperiled….much can change/
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
PPO – I guess Stewart might not even notice the difference after cleaning up after pigs.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Just read this in HP……’ Spicer said in December the Trump White House would not kick news organizations out of the briefing room over critical coverage. During a panel discussion that month with Politico, he said you can’t ban news organizations from the White House. “That’s what makes a democracy a democracy versus a dictatorship.”
pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago
That Bannon is one scary dude,he makes Carl Rove look like a boy scout!
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Beatlex – Americans are reactive by nature, not affirmative in general. They only act when something bad enough is happening to them. Americans need to suffer until they really demand change.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Murph–I think the election of the DNC chair is extremely important, and that the DNC has to get a ground game going, as well as candidates that can articulate the progressive positions positively. The congressional elections cannot turn into an insult fest!
glenn

3 hours ago
Beat, put composite of Goering, Himmler and Goebbels toether and you get Bannons mug!
pinkpantheroz

The path of least resistance Ad
Beatlex

3 hours ago
Murph – I think Perez seems like a good guy but he’ll bring the Hillary problem with him. He is smart and has a good sense of humor but he has zero charisma, he supported the TPP and he was a huge Hillary fan from the beginning. Not things more likely to attract indies and Progressives.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Glenn = agreed.
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
PPO–yes, Spicer said that in Dec. That was almost two months ago…it’s different now. /s/ Plus, IOIYAR.
glenn

3 hours ago
ad….make the case for ellison…
MurphTheSurf3

3 hours ago
Ad–I agree. Right now, HRC is poison!
glenn

2 hours ago
Murph – Ah, but that’s the conundrum. If Trump is dragging Repubs down and they try to impeach him so obviously for an election advantage, they will be alienating the oonly supporters they’ll have, the Trump voters. It doesn’t work.
AdLib 2 hours ago
You have to have at least a shred of sympathy for Spicer,look what he has to defend
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Beatlex–no, I don’t have even a shred of sympathy for Spicer. He can quit any time; the longer he defends the indefensible, the less sympathy he deserves.
glenn

2 hours ago
LOL-Okay glenn,just throwing it out there
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Well, I am off to the races…or to bed.
MurphTheSurf3

2 hours ago
Ad–not so sure the 45 voters are the only voters the gop has. Most of the repub voters are trying to walk a fine line between supporting 45 and their party; and finding it difficult. However, they will still vote R over D anytime.

Murph – Not a big fan of The Intercept but I think this article makes the case for Ellison well. He and Perez are very similar but Perez was drafted by Estab Dems to help them keep control with no cooncern about again alienating the energized wing of the party:

Who’s worse though, the one whoo does evil out of conviction or the one who cooperates with it out of self-interest?

glenn, agree, and anyone involved with today’s WH are toxic and deserve to decend to infamy.
pinkpantheroz

2 hours ago
Me! Me! Ad!!! Both!!
Beatlex

2 hours ago
It’s like the old Nazi thing said by those who committed war crimes, “I was just following orders!”
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad–to paraphrase a famous line–evil is as evil does! What you’re asking is, which is the lesser of two evils? And, if you’re evil out of conviction, is that evil, or is that just plain stupidity?
glenn

well, better get to my To DO list. See you all next week. HAng in ther, you poor bastards!
pinkpantheroz

2 hours ago
There is evil in all life and no evil in every life
Beatlex

2 hours ago
G’day OZ!
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Agree with all of you, my point was, both are evil for different reasons but the one who’s “just following orders” doesn’t get to use that as an excuse.
AdLib 2 hours ago
G’night, PPO! We’re hanging by a thread, but we’re hanging!
glenn

2 hours ago
Ad it did not work as an excuse in WW2 either’
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Good one, Beatlex! The difference is we have to recognize the evil.
glenn

2 hours ago
We HAVE to take back at least one house of Congress in 2018. If it’s The House, they can investigate and impeach Trump, if it’s The Senate, they can block all his judges and bills.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad–no doubt–“following orders” is no excuse.
glenn

2 hours ago
And I think most Americans do recognize Trump as evil.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad–I’m not sure what we can do right now; but 2018 may be too late to block 45’s judges. He may have gotten too many through with this Congress….which is one of the reasons I think they don’t impeach or even investigate him.
glenn

2 hours ago
Look, we’re living in historic times with a truly evil enemy, this is our turn to be heroes and fight him to his defeat.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad–oh yeah, they do. Even repubs see him as evil, but he’s their evil, so they will let him slide.
glenn

2 hours ago
I “think” that Trump has broken laws already.But I don’t “believe” for sure that he will be held to account
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Ad–From your lips to Congress’s ears!
glenn

2 hours ago
Beatlex–not only laws, but he is shredding the Constitution!
glenn

2 hours ago
glenn – We can also build The Resistance bigger to frighten Repubs into opposing Trump, that is already working. We do have power, strength in numbers.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad–once again, I hope you’re right. That man is a menace to the US!
glenn

2 hours ago
My turn to say good night. Take care, Ad and Beatlex. Hopefully, this nasty woman will see you all next week!
glenn

2 hours ago
“The arc of justice bends towards the truth” I need to believe that
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Beatlex – You may be right but with Dems controlling at least one house, Trump will be destroyed by investigations exposing him. And the way to really hammer a stake through Trump’s heart is to have him massively rejected as a loser in 2020. That will kill him.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Beatlex–on that thought, I’m leaving.

We can get to the root of anything! Me and you,You and I
Beatlex

Yep! We can do it!

That’s how we’ll beat him and his evil cronies.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Sticking together.
AdLib 2 hours ago
I am still kind of in shock.He is really the President! FUCK AD!

And not panicking.
AdLib 2 hours ago
It seems surreal, like a huge mistake we should be able to correct. Waiting 4 years for that is tough.
AdLib 2 hours ago
But unlike Trump, we accept reality and that gives us a mission we can accomplish.
AdLib 2 hours ago
I still think impeachment can happen,the russia connection?
Beatlex

2 hours ago
Not unless the Dems re-take The House. Repubs will never impeach Trump, they’ll go down with the Trumptanic.

Not if it is obvious Ad,If he has ties to Putin it will come out

we are close in age…but we both know that it means shit if one cannot be open at all times to new things

Exactly! The trait I see in Repubs is a petrifying of thought as they get older, don’t want to go down that road.

Trump is not capable of original thought,he is truly mentally ill.
Beatlex

He is crazy, locked in a loop. No getting out of that craziness, he needs to be cast aside so he can spend the rest of his life drooling and crying.
AdLib an hour ago
Yah Ad….but….He is the FUCKING President of the USA! I AM afraid
Beatlex

It’s a bit scary but seeing how people are rising up now against him, millions and millions all across the country, I can see how this story eventually ends and it ain’t gonna be good for Trump.
AdLib an hour ago
Keep a good thought about that Ad.This President is just wrong,in all senses of the word.Pence would be a known piece of meat at least

We’ve seen how the pendulum swings so I actually expect a very liberal Dem to take the WH away from Trump in 2020. He has no idea, he lives in a bubble of delusion and lies. But the end is already coming for him.

Was a fan of his since the 70’s when I was a kid!

You can put it into words much better than me…I always think”That is what I think” but don’t have the range to put it as well as you do.I am no slouch!? But you are one great thinker and wordsmith my friend

It takes a real thinker to enthrall an audience the way he did.It has it roots in reality,but is not true in real terms.It is all about cadence and delivery
Beatlex

Yes, comedy in general has so much to do with presentation and timing. Carlin had all of that plus he saw words and the absurdity in life as fun. He may have his rants but at the heart of them all is a sense of play that’s contagious.

Like his “Replace the term kill in old westerns to the word fuck” As in “Stop me before I fuck again”! or “Fuck the Ump” or my fave,”we are going to fuck you sheriff,and we are going to fuck you real slow” Brilliance
