Relying on tv for his decision-making on personnel has gone so well, Trump will now use it to select military leaders. Trump stated, "I need a new general and I've watched this Gomer Pyle guy all of my life, I like the cut of his jib!"
When Trump campaigned on "bringing back" law and order, he meant authorities should have more power to dominate and abuse minorities. He didn't intend for them to be more empowered to pursue crimes that rich, white men commit.
Instead of our usual Weekend Music Thread, the historic March For Our Lives has taken place today (and is continuing in some places) so in this post we present exclusive video and photos from today's march in Los Angeles.
In the Trump era, time runs faster. That can be a good or bad thing. The sooner Trump's four years are over will be a massive relief to most Americans and people around the world. However, as days and weeks speed by, many events that would haunt a politician to his grave are too quickly forgotten.
Oligarchs despise peace and shared prosperity. They know that they can only monopolize power if the majority is divided and busy at each other's throats. The viciousness of partisanship in America as the oligarchy seized power is not a coincidence, it's a key part of the plan.
The next Democratic primary for president in 2020 will not be a Back to the Future experience, Hillary will not be running against Bernie. Whoever the candidate turns out to be, he or she will be the only hope for America to end the destructive rampage of the Trump regime.
In a way, much of America seems to be just stunned, standing in the middle of a house where an orange-faced arsonist is pouring gasoline everywhere and threatening to drop the (Nazi) torch he's carrying if he gets mad enough.
Trump's begrudging statement today about the horrifying events in Charlottesville was delivered stiffly like a disinterested 5th grader reading out loud to his class, with none of the emotion and vehemence of his attacks on the press, Nordstrom and Kathy Griffin.
An attempted crime is still an effort to commit a crime...which is a crime. If bank robbers failed in a heist, if terrorists failed in an attack, if a rapist failed in a rape attempt...are they all innocent because they didn't succeed at the intended crime?
"I'm not a witch! There are reasons why I can't float or be seen in a mirror, believe me! I just don't want to, If I wanted to, I could. But I want to tell all those witch hunters at the FBI something, you like not being a toad? Ask yourselves that, that's all I'm gonna say," Trump smirked before transforming into a weasel then becoming irritated because no one noticed.
