    It's not very often that I have something this important to say. biy this must be said..
    The commenter "reverend. Miller" has a history of being a blame gamer.
    I would describe him as someone who just can't accept responsibility, just like Barack Obama.
    Geeze, can't you liberal's wake the hell up and smell the stench that this man has brought to America?
    What is wrong with you people? Our country has sunk lower, and lower every year that this inept FOOL has been in office. I just can't wait until we get him out off office and hopefully out of American politics. Both Dave Miller. And Shaw Kenewe have been Obama ass-kissers, and Bush Blamers since they have been on these blogs. As for Barack Obama, the worse president of our time, he has been an an abomination since the very first day he came into power..

      Hey Frank, you are entitled to your racist opinion, but you are wrong. Tell us what ghastly evil things President Obama,has done to the US. Jobs are coming back, despite the GOP blocking every effort. People have affordable health care, even poor people. We are not at war. He never signed a pledge to an unelected Ayn Rand junkie to ruin the country. He never sent a,traitorous letter to Iran to undermine the credibility of our nation. He wants to close the Bush torture chamber in Cuba. I could go on, but why bother. Your heroes have done nothing but trash him and the country for eight years. What have they done to help you? I pray for another liberal administration because,otherwise our rights will be gone. Forever.

      You're an idiot. Can't you 'conservatives' wake the hell up and smell the stench that your party has brought to DC? Taking a pledge the very first day with an unelected fool to block every effort buy Obama? Signing traitorous letters to another country saying that they do not have to follow our laws if the nuclear treaty goes through? My God, how ignorant are you? Those are both illegal acts, and your precious party thinks they are being patriotic. Now Trump has people trying to kill the homeless in his name. THAT's sure swell and Christian, and American, huh? This is not 1850. This is America. And no one has been a better advocate for America than Barack Obama. And when we have a progressive after him, along with a Congress that will actually do their jobs instead of whining to the cameras, lying on Fox, and spending their time fund-raising for the next election, watch the USA soar. I'm not sure if you are a paid troll or just blind. Either way, your hateful speech is not appreciated, not true.

      Barack Obama -- or anyone -- couldn't be "an abomination since his first day in office." He didn't do anything on his first day. He was and is rejected and vilified because he is half-black. Also half-white, Frank.

      All the GOP talking points are about Obama's failures, but they don't specify what those failures have been. Recovery from the Bush depression? Continuing the Bush initiatives to get us out of the Middle East, which has cost us thousands of lives and trillions of dollars, based on Bush lies? That he, despite Congressional opposition, came up with a health care plan that was initially conceived by Mitt Romney in Massachusetts? (I"m a Mass. resident, and know that Romney did it for political reasons, but we're ahead of the country in providing a life-or-death benefit to our citizens.)

      Aside from the evangelicals' insistence that the U.S. must support Israel because, ironically, that's a step toward a Christian heaven -- and a Jewish hell. This so-called "christianity" is not the reason for us to react politically. We're a secular nation, no matter what these Bible-thumpers (not Bible readers) allege.

      Plus, all the things that have been written as responses to you, Frank the Troll.

      What is the legacy of the Obama Presidency?

      a. The economic recovery from the Dubya Depression, ObamaCare bringing Affordable Health insurance to millions of previously uninsured Americans, The Iran Nuclear Arms Agreement.

      b. There was a black man in the White House.

      Well Frank, I have seen my stocks value soar, I saw business boom and I am still stunned President Obama was able to do that. I have also seen President Obama do the impossible of getting some type of healthcare plan through, thus saving the lives of many Americans( I bet you are pro-life aren't you?) I have seen him already this year save medicare for us seniors. I have seen President Obama take out Bin Laden and many top terrorist leaders. I have seen millions of American xitizens gain their right to marry because I believe ALL Americans should have the same rights. So if that is "sinking" I wish I could vote him in in the the next election.
      And maybe it's because I'm not white, that I didn't see an abomination take office in 2008. Seems from all your spewing you didn't give one reason other than President Obama's name and your own apparent racism and bigotry..

      Unfortunately, Donald Trump has to be taken seriously. He poses the same kind of danger that Adolf Hitler did in the late 1920's except that he is rich. He appeals to white people at the bottom who feel disenfranchised because President Obama is in office. They are mean-spirited, ignorant, conservative, nominally Christian but not religious, and they are afraid) because the GOP has told them to be afraid ever since January 2009. They want to blame anyone different from them for their own failings. Trump feeds on their ignorance, says anything that pops into his head at the moment. And the media EATS IT UP without ever holding him accountable for what he is saying. So instead of analyzing the impact of the outrageous claims and accusations he makes, the media jokes. And people laugh. That happened in Germany too. The more sophisticated people did not think that Hitler could ever get anywhere. And the rest is history. I do not want this country to fall into the same trap. Donald Trump is a dangerous megalomanic and we dismiss him and his pathetic, violdence-prone (think of the Boston thugs) followers. They are the teabaggers of 2010 given a voice.

  6. So two yahoos from Southie in my hometown of Boston severely beat up a Hispanic homeless guy earlier this week. While being arrested, one of the brothers reportedly told police that “Donald Trump was right, all of these illegals need to be deported.”

    — Rolling Stone, Aug 21, 2015

    Then, further in the article, here is what Trump is quoted as saying:

    “I will say, the people that are following me are very passionate. They love this country. They want this country to be great again. But they are very passionate. I will say that.”

    "Statements like these, and movements like these, have often in history been the beginnings of very bad eventual outcomes.

    "For example, in the 1920s, Germany was not doing very well. The economy was a disaster, people were hungry, humiliated from World War I, and hopeless. Decades of abuse by bad leadership had created a vacuum.

    "Then came an unlikely little man with a powerful speaking voice. Whenever he spoke, he incited passion in his listeners. He spoke of new hope, of national pride, of honor, of making his country great again. He also started to spread the seeds that much of the economic demise of the country was due to the Jews.

    (continued below)

    ReplyDelete
  7. "With his upbeat and passionate message, he gathered more and more followers and eventually he managed to get himself elected through crafty and actually illegal maneuverings.

    "Within weeks of being elected, he outlawed other political parties and systematically took over police and security. Suddenly, those that earlier were just blamed for the demise of the country, no longer had the protection of the system. The police had turned against them. Jews started to flee while they still could.

    "But the country was “becoming great again.” There were massive public works projects and everyone was employed. Industry boomed. The people were proud. The country hosted the 1936 Olympics. The people were passionately behind their leader, their Führer.

    "Pretty soon, Jews could openly be abused, beaten, robbed, raped and killed without any recourse. The German Third Reich was supposed to last 1000 years, yet it rose for only about six or eight, and then went down in a spectacular firestorm of world-wide disastrous proportions. As we so say, the rest is history.

    "But let’s remember how it all started.

    "There was a man who fired up his listeners. They came to listen to him to beer halls and stadiums by the hundreds first, then by the thousands, and always left with fire in their bellies.

    "There was a man who said he knew how to make the country great again, and he started cranking the economic engine unlike anything seen before. He kept saying he knew what he was doing.

    "There was a man who, probably with all good intention, thought he had figured it all out: It was the fault of the Jews. Too many of them were usurping the power and money from the country and its people.

    "Trump does all those things today. He says that 7.5% of all births in the United States are by illegal parents and he wants to take away the birthrights of those United States citizens. Note that he is already setting himself up to perform illegal acts, all in the name of the country. After all, we’re being “stupid, right?” And his listeners with fire in their bellies applaud.

    "By targeting illegals, he is creating an atmosphere of making them at least one of the scapegoats of our demise. It’s the Mexicans’ fault. Whether those “Mexicans” are illegal or legal, you can’t tell from the outside. So an entire class of our society is becoming a target of hate without any solid ground. When idiots like the guys in Boston (article above) beat up immigrants, Trump, rather than being outraged like any decent citizen would be, he dismisses it as “passionate” and thus we have it:

    "A leader is officially condoning violence against an arbitrary subset of the population that he has identified as being “the problem” of the country that we all must make great again. He is encouraging this behavior.

    "It’s beginnings like these that have paved the road for some of history’s greatest thugs, it’s beginnings like these that have resulted in entire countries of decent, hard-working, pious people being hijacked and forced to commit unspeakable crimes and atrocities, all in the name of country and leader.

    "This is how it starts.

    "Just saying.

    "Full disclosure: I am an immigrant."

    (This was from Norbert Haupt's blog)

    I absolutely agree, and wink/smile/fuck-me-heeled, wrapped-in-a-flag Sarah Palin paved the way for this dangerous blowhard and his despicable fellow candidates and the shout-outs, beatings.

    Nobody saw Palin’s threat soon enough (and mainstream media still won’t call her on her faked pregnancy) and who (with a national platform) is NOW seeing the fascist similarities Trump has with Hitler. History could be repeated.

    Where are real journalists when you need them? Why aren’t mainstream media newspapers & channels on this — has all media been bought out by Kochs, et al.? Was HBO's Newsroom broadcast for nothing?

    American could sleep walk into fascism and call it "making America great again". The world is watching with more than laughter at Trump and the GOP field.

      The policies of the Bush Administration that were in violation of the Geneva Convention used in our warfare and detention of enemy combatants place us in the same class as the war criminals as of yet we are unprosecuted because we are undefeated and powerful.

      At some point in history if the Right Wing finds their Feurer and he comes into power, the entire world will be driven to engage us in war and we will be defeated...

    The GOP has expanded from just publicly hating black people to also hating brown people. When will they revive the hatred of yellow people?
    "White power," indeed. This country would not be what it is without slavery having provided free labor; without brown people performing so many demeaning and low-paying jobs (farm, domestic); without Asian immigrants providing low-paying labor in the 19th century, and some economic engines -- Korean, Indian, Chinese, nearly every other Asian country --- in the past 50 years.

    My "heritage" -- from immigrants in the 1630s to Irish escaping from the potato famine. Immigrants all. And I welcome the challenge of how to weave new immigrants into our lives today.

    There are Native Americans without running water in today's U.S.A. White power, indeed.

  10. 21 questions for Trump -- never asked
    by mainstream media

    AMY GOODMAN: David Cay Johnston, you also talk about how he discusses his experience as a manager allowing him to run the federal government far better than President Obama or Hillary Clinton. Can you talk about that?

    DAVID CAY JOHNSTON: Oh, yes. Well, you know, Fortune magazine does these analyses of who’s a good employer. Wegmans supermarkets, where I am here in Rochester, New York, is often cited as a really good employer, and with good reason. So they looked at 496 major companies, and Trump’s casino company was at the bottom or almost at the bottom in terms of management competence, how it treated its workers, its return to its investors—every metric they had, near the bottom. Donald is not a manager. He is a dealmaker.


    And the principal elements of Trump deals are these: You borrow a lot of money. You then arrange later to pay back less than you owed, whether you do it through private transactions, by threatening to go to bankruptcy court, or actual bankruptcy, in the case of his casino company. You don’t pay people who work for you or vendors what’s promised.

    And what I don’t understand, Amy, is not one major news organization has even tried to check these things out. I got one phone call from The Washington Post about this piece, "21 Questions for Donald Trump." Nothing has appeared. And that’s because, in this country, politics reporters cover the horse race, and they do not vet the candidates the way they should. And Trump, if vetted properly, would quickly disappear from the polls.

    It's ironic that this GOP battle is being waged, behind the scenes, by the Kochs vs. Trump.

    He's a loudmouthed egomaniac with an inferiority complex that's richly deserved.

    This battle will take place not on TV screens but in back rooms over the next six months. Trump will lose, giving the Kochs all the more power to do what they want. That the best they could come up with as their mouthpiece is Scott Walker will frame the real contest in 2016.

      Trump likes people to think he has an MBA from Wharton, instead of a Bachelor's degree. Wharton has a very good undergraduate business program, but if you're a business person and you say you went to Wharton, people will assume it's for an MBA. It's no big deal he doesn't have an MBA and it's no small task to graduate from Penn, but he certainly would like people to believe he went to one of the top business schools (and by that, I mean MBA programs) in the country.

      Trump said (literally): "I went to the Wharton School of Business. I'm, like, a really smart person."

    So it boils down to this: Trump suffers from Obama size-envy. Crowd size, that is, and maybe more…

    But first, it was only a matter of time before the object of Prez Obama’s ridicule at the White House Correspondents’ Dinners in 2011 and 2015, would be prompted to redeem his ego. Behold, the Trump2016 presidential run.

    ****
    In 2011, President Obama chose deliberately to inflate Trump’s gargantuan ego, using the very vehicle of birtherism to surgically puncture Trump’s pompous ass at the precise moment for maximal humiliating effect, the night before the OBL operation. That we the American people enjoyed the take down of the hotair without knowing about the OBL mission underway, only prolonged the deliciousness of the schadenfreude when we found out the next night when POTUS interrupted Trump’s “Apprentice” show to deliver the unbelievable news. Trump was doubly slayed. We roared!

    As icing on the cake, Prez Obama gave us a spoof sneak peak into what a Trump White House might look like, complete with gaudy Trump insignia plastered all over the WH exterior, plus female posse wading in the WH fountain. We found the idea of a Trump presidency absurd. But Trump began dreaming big.

    ****

    The coup de grace came this year, when POTUS Obama raised and then immediately dashed Trump’s hope of the President engaging him again in full glare of the cameras. POTUS simply said “Donald Trump is here…..still”, then moved on to the next segment. Ouch!

    I posit that Trump’s mind was made up that night to run for President by hook or crook. How do we know this? Answer: Trump himself is the fire breathing clue. A narcissist thrives on attention, and President Obama flippantly cut off that oxygen on an important media stage, the same one on which he had been humiliated irreparably in 2011. Trump could deal with the ridicule during the previous WHCDs, because they accrued to him media notoriety. Media attention is the currency of Trump’s very existence. But to be swatted away like a fly with nary a word more from Prez Obama to indulge his outsized narcissism? Naw. He had to get even.

      SUCH A GOOD ARTICLE! Really nails the psychology behind Trumps' run and how he thinks. Yep, penis envy in a whole new way!

    George Stephanopoulos tore Trump apart by not letting the celebrity ramble on with vague platitudes. Stephanopoulos treated Trump like a real candidate, and the billionaire fell apart.

    Donald Trump Actually Kept A Book Of Adolf Hitler’s Speeches By His Bedside

    Donald Trump has a white supremacy problem. No, it’s not his scores and scores of white supremacist followers. It’s not even the guy who screamed “White Power” seven or eight times directly behind Trump at a White Person Rally in Mobile, Alabama (a city that is more than 50 percent African-American). It’s the fact that he won’t acknowledge the issue — and the fact that, for at least a period of his life, he literally kept a collection of Adolf Hitler’s speeches within arm’s reach while he slept.

    How come Donald Trump doesn't send his Secretary of White Power to talk to George Stephanopoulos?

      The SNL 40 "joke" that $arah served up still bothers me. If those two are in cahoots through this, it can't be good.

    Four years ago Donald Trump stated he had proof President Obama was not born in the US but never allowed the public to see his evidence. Well, Donny, now is your time to put up or show America the liar we know you are! Where's the proof you SOB?

    This reminded me of the expression "unleashed the hounds of hell" how rhetoric and bold lies can unleash fury in people.

    OT I remember a Vogue magazine photo of Trump's wife who was a model stark naked when pregnant of the rear steps of a small private jet of his. I am waiting for Palin to yammer she does porn or is in the pornography profession.

    It's not surprising nor shocking, but it speaks volumes about Trump, just as it did for McCain/Palin, for giving their tacit approval by not calling it out when it happened. Sure McCain had that "plant" in the audience who was concerned about candidate Obama being a secret muslim, but it doesn't excuse him nor Sarah for the blaring racism shown on signs and props (monkey toys/puppets in uncle sam outfits, and signs inciting hate)
    The Trump followers believe this is an example of "American Exceptionalism", and the white power movement gets their point across with no static at all.

    The thing is, it's there, on tape, and there's no plausible excuse whatsoever. It shows Trump's true character.

    Great discussion, with some solid links for further study. Thanks for the IMers who wrote such cogent material. This is a scary time, it's hard not to slip into despair.
