Of all of the terrifying things that Donald Trump has said this might be the most terrifying of all. Update!

This is how much I understand about NATO. 
Courtesy of CNN:

Donald Trump, in a New York Times interview published Thursday, outlined a sharp break in US foreign policy tradition, suggesting the US wouldn't defend NATO allies like the Baltic states against Russian aggression if they haven't "fulfilled their obligation to us." 

Trump has repeatedly made the case that most of NATO's 28-member countries are not making the requisite financial contributions for their common defense, and he's said in the past that "the US must be prepared to let these countries defend themselves." 

Throughout the interview, the Republican presidential nominee seemed to reject core assumptions of US military and foreign policy thinking -- including foreign troop deployment and advocating for civil liberties -- and argued for an unprecedented global retrenchment, frequently framing his argument in economic terms. 

Trump's comments were met with shock and anger in some quarters, drawing stern rebukes from members of both parties and prompting the White House to assuage anxious allies.

You know when a presidential candidate is so reckless that the current President's administraton has to calm fears in the wake of his comments, that should really tell you that such a person should NOT be a presidential candidate.

I'm just saying.

A top Clinton aide had this to say:

Jake Sullivan, a senior Clinton policy adviser, noted how the U.S. has for decades given an "ironclad guarantee" to its NATO allies to come to their defense if attacked, "just as they came to our defense" after 9/11.

"Donald Trump was asked if he would honor that guarantee. He said ... maybe, maybe not," Sullivan said in a statement. "The president is supposed to be the leader of the free world. Donald Trump apparently doesn't even believe in the free world." 

You know all of this stopped being funny months ago.

Simply put anybody who sits out this election, or votes the Republican party ticket, is a traitor to this country.

Update: They have now had a chance to fact check Trump's acceptance speech and found that most of the "facts" that he presented were either untrue or misleading.

I actually would be surprised if it were otherwise.

    "...apparently doesn't believe in the free world." Did you come late to the party? No apparently about it. Trump believes in bully tactics and greed. Whatever it takes to give him more money and power. Make America white again.

      "Whatever it takes to give him more money and power."

      That's what Mark Cuban is saying: that if Trump loses, he's no longer a threat so can become the "good guy" again -- and his brand and net worth could increase tenfold. Given that, it's easy to see; Trump doesn't care if he loses because he wins financially and that's what drives him.

    Though his whole speech was full of Scooby Doo "huh?" moments, two statements had me yelling at the tv. He said he would protect the lgbtq community from the violence and oppression from a hateful foreign idealogy. Really? What about a hateful domestic ideology? Transgender people are being murdered for who they are. Gay bashing is still prevalent. His party wants to overturn marriage equality, be able to discriminate against lgbt, and supports "conversion" therapy. The second moment was when he said he would stop the violence from coming accross our borders. What about dealing with the violence inside our borders caused by the proliferation of guns in this country. Crickets.

Hillary Clinton has combined forces with B, and adopted some of the progressive policies he espoused. I don't believe the polls--Hillary's waaaay ahead of Drumpf.

    This is a very important post that Griffin has put up.

    First:
    Trump doesn't care about gays or transgender. He will let the public handle it through acts of violence and states rights. Trump will also say the right things when people are hurt through these acts of violence while still maintaining and giving approval to those thoughts inspiring these actions.

    Second:
    Trump cares about power and revenge. (Does it really matter if bigots exist in a banana state?)

    Truman's foreign policy, or just his repetitive statements, seek to benefit himself and dominate the country. Please be aware that Hitler used the same message of nationalism and it did not happen over night. He gradually got people to buy into his argument. Once he had the power, no more pandering to the electorate.

    TRUMP UNLEASHED!
    Post-Convention Presser Goes Totally Off The Rails

    Trump Just Rehashed Literally Every Feud He’s Ever Had With Cruz



    Donald Trump took what was supposed to be a celebratory speech Friday thanking volunteers after the Republican National Convention and used it to skewer his rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), digging up virtually every high-profile feud the two had in the primary.

    Standing alongside his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Trump lit into Cruz, saying that he was the only one in the convention hall who didn't want to unify the Republican Party and that his defiance would ruin him professionally.

    In Cruz's Wednesday night RNC speech, he told GOPers to "vote with their conscience," which many took to be a Trump dig and drew loud boos from the gathered delegates.

    "Somebody got booed the hell out of a place by thousands and thousands of people," Trump said. "There wasn't one person in the room -- not one. And then they said there may not be unity. Unity? There wasn't one person in the room, including the Texas delegation, right? Honestly, he may have ruined his political career. I feel so badly. I feel so badly."

    As bad as he claimed to feel, Trump made it clear he does not need Cruz on his side to win the presidency.

    "You know, he'll come and endorse over the next little while," he said. "He'll — because he has no choice. But I don't want his endorsement. What difference does it make? And I don't want his endorsement. I have such great -- I don't want his endorsement. Just -- Ted, stay home, relax, enjoy yourself."

    "Again, I don't want his endorsement," he said. "If he gives it, I will not accept it. Just so you understand. If he gives it -- I will not accept it."

    Porn viewership hits all-time high in Cleveland during RNC after GOP declares it a public health crisis

    Porn viewership is at an all-time high in Cleveland during the Republican National Convention.

    According to figures from xHamster, porn viewership is 184 percent above normal viewing rates, with more porn being watched in Cleveland this week than during the NBA Finals, when Cleveland hosted three championship games. Cleveland racked up 873,294 views on the xHamster site, shattering previous records. And in case any Republicans try to deflect blame onto the population of Cleveland, “Trump” was a trending search topic on the site.

    The news of Republican delegates watching an insane amount of porn is particularly newsworthy as the Republican platform passed an amendment with overwhelming approval declaring porn a “public health crisis.”

    “Pornography, with its harmful effects, especially on children, has become a public health crisis that is destroying the life of millions. We encourage states to continue to fight this public menace and pledge our commitment to children’s safety and well-being. We applaud the social networking sites that bar sex offenders from participation. We urge energetic prosecution of child pornography which closely linked to human trafficking.”

    Cleveland isn’t an outlier, either. In Utah, Republican state lawmakers recently introduced a resolution stating a need for “education, prevention, research, and policy change at the community and societal level in order to address the pornography epidemic that is harming the people of our state and nation.”

    As the below chart shows, the “pornography epidemic” the resolution refers to seems to primarily affect the reddest states. Seven of the ten states with the highest per-capita porn viewership rates vote for Republican candidates in nearly every presidential election.

    "Perhaps... Except for the fact it happens to be true. If you can't see the difference between the Democratic and Republican parties or their respective candidates, you never will. It's never been clearer."

    Of course I see that difference. Do you see the difference between calling a person you disagree with about who they vote for a traitor vs. accepting that they have a view opinion that differs from yours? I mean without insulting them.

    Not having had the stomach to watch and listen to Trump's overlong tantrum last night, I ignored it as best I could except for the moment when I was trying to set Colbert's show to DVR and saw Trump continuing to spew forth his vileness after 11:00 pm. However, those seconds were long enough to ruin my night's sleep.

    What I am reading about Trump's Night of Many Lies is that he did his best to engender fear, if not absolute terror, into his audience. That is not what nomination acceptance speeches are supposed to be about. They should inspire and make the faithful followers feel good.

    I really believe that Trump thinks he is this century's version of a fascist leader and that we will simply lap him up. I hope we all decide to spit him out for good come next November. And his creepy offspring too.

    Sooooooooo sick of Trump on the news cycle. He talks, and talks. He has no depth. Just repetition. For a year now I have heard this man of no substance talk. The media are all sucking up now for ratings. I feel like grabbing my flatscreen and throwing it off the balcony. Damn! Won't he shut up! Won't they? Blah, blah, blah. The country was doing okay until Trump came on scene and started to tell a story. The Republicans are like virgins who just married a scoundrel and it's wedding night and they are still holding their legs but he's a gettin' in there cuz he always gets what he wants. Now we gotta here about Ivanka, and her American dream come true. Sure Ivanka, your' American dream comes true cuz your' rich already. Let's hear a story about the clothing designer who still has to climb the ladder. Geez, it's the gilded age again. America, wake up! We can't go back!

    Mr.Z dRumpf>"would not honor NATO's guarantee of security to America's European allies, practically inviting Vladimir PUTIN to destabilize Eastern Europe. That is a break not just with seven decades of Republican foreign policy, but with a core American commitment that has kept the peace since 1945. It is the MOST RECKLESS statement made by a presidential candidate in modern times."
    GOT THAT RIGHT!

    My understanding is there was a plane with a banner "Hillary for prison" or "lock her up" flying around the convention area all week.


    Newt said I don't care if Melanomia plagiarized her speech, she gave it better than Michele.

    Petty little people, I am beyond words to describe what just happened in Cleveland.

    If I didn't know it was the RNC, I would have thought it was a gathering of mental patients and the worse of America.

    'Trump has promised 40% of the country what they've always wanted: a racist welfare state. If he persuades 1 additional voter in 10, he wins.'

    '...He is an empty symbol with no point of reference, a goblin of nihilism wearing a mask of hope.

    Laurie Penny, a young British journalist, gets at some of this in a truly terrifying article this week about the banned Twitter abuse king Milo Yiannopoulos, a person I would rather not know about at all whom Penny seems to like. Penny could not have known, unless she has Trumpian psychic powers, that the Republican nominee would tell his followers he was their voice, but that’s exactly how she puts it. People like Trump and Yiannopoulos (and Ann Coulter and Boris Johnson), she writes, are “pure antagonists unencumbered by any conviction”; people who “channel their own narcissism to give voice to the wordless, formless rage of the people neoliberalism left behind.”'

    The red flag for me was the statement that he is the only one who understands government so he is the only one who can fix it.

    I remember reading somewhere that this sort of statement is an indicator of something, some mental problem.

    And Keith Olbermann has used some sort of sanity test to prove that Trump is crazy. It's in Vanity Fair.
