Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey
The psychological stress that #45 Precedent Trump has caused on America and Americans is disastrous for our families, schools, and communities.Let's not take it lying down. RESIST!Stand up and speak up. Encourage the unregistered to VOTE, local, county, state; especially in the 2018 elections. We can at the minimum, vote the against the teapartied orange-dusted anti-Americas now in office!dowl
He is a higly visible long term case study of mental illness, the people that dont see it must have some screws loose themselves. The man is batshit crazy, it is so obvious.
His family should be charged with treason.They know he is mentally ill and didn't stop him from running.
Look no further than the pee puddle. Because Melania read The Lord's Prayer yesterday, she is the bestest FL ever; most godly first couple ever; blah blah blah.If I read "The Theory Of Relativity" aloud, does that make me an Einstein? I can't figure out if they are that fucking stupid or if it's an innate need to be "right."
6:14 AM - their heads are all bowed in prayer today for the Iron Dog. I saw a pic of Palin; she looks like hell as usual.
Obama had a bigger dick than the whole Trump Administration
When does the pee party start?
When they sleep off their hangover.
Is bannon and Conway still asleep? Where is the new cycle of fake news from the auditor?
Trump can't come clean on Russia, because the cover-up is all that keeps him in office...As in yesterdays ludicrous press conference, Donald Trump will continue to deny that this happened—until he’s dragged from the Oval Office.http://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/02/17/1634777/-Trump-can-t-come-clean-on-Russia-because-the-cover-up-is-all-that-keeps-him-in-office
Mr. President: ‘Just who the hell do you think you are?’ Dear Mr. So-Called President:So let me explain to you how this works.You were elected as chief executive of the United States. I won’t belabor the fact that you won with a minority of the popular vote and a little help from your friends, FBI Director James Comey and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The bottom line is, you were elected.And this does entitle you to certain things. You get your own airplane. You get free public housing. You get greeted with snappy salutes. And a band plays when you walk into the room.But there is one thing to which your election does not entitle you. It does not entitle you to do whatever pops into your furry orange head without being called on it or, should it run afoul of the Constitution, without being blocked.You and other members of the Fourth Reich seem to be having difficulty understanding this. Reports from Politico and elsewhere describe you as shocked that judges and lawmakers can delay or even stop you from doing things. Three weeks ago, your chief strategist, Steve Bannon, infamously declared that news media should “keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while.”Just last Sunday, senior policy adviser Stephen Miller declared on CBS’ “Face The Nation” that “our opponents, the media and the whole world will soon see as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.”What you do “will not be questioned?” Lord, have mercy. That’s the kind of statement that, in another time and place, would have been greeted with an out-thrust palm and a hearty “Sieg heil!” Here in this time and place, however, it demands a different response:Just who the hell do you think you are?Meaning you and all the other trolls you have brought clambering up from under their bridges. Maybe you didn’t notice, but this is the United States of America. Perhaps you’ve heard of it? Nation of laws, not of individuals? First Amendment? Freedom of the press? Any of that ringing a bell?Let’s be brutally clear here. If you were a smart guy with unimpeachable integrity and a good heart who was enacting wise policies for the betterment of all humankind, you’d still be subject to sharp scrutiny from news media, oversight from Congress, restraint by the judiciary — and public opinion.And you, of course, are none of those things. I know you fetishize strength. I know your pal Vladimir would never stand still for reporters and judges yapping at him.http://www.miamiherald.com/opinion/opn-columns-blogs/leonard-pitts-jr/article132721909.html#storylink=cpy

The purpose of Fox "News" was to misinform a large group of weak-minded Americans to the point of voting for Republicans whose policies benefit only oil companies, Halliburton, hedge fund billionaires, etc. This group has been dumbed down so much now, that even fascism and Russian propaganda sounds good to them.--Henry Pennant
Can journalists debunk Trump’s lies without amplifying them? It’s challenging but not impossiblehttp://www.salon.com/2017/02/15/can-journalists-debunk-trumps-lies-without-amplifying-them-its-challenging-but-not-impossible/
Donald Trump is the symptom of a greater disease. A mirror reflecting our political culture that has gone to hell in a hand basket. We are the stupid country, and are gonna go down in flames. Trump is merely the vessel chosen by overly religious Christians, xenophobes, people who have never travelled out of their states, much less the country. The disease could become terminal for this nation.http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/2/19/1635500/-Trump-s-NOT-the-worst-thing-in-America-right-now
Trump, White House ApprenticeIt’s with a whiff of desperation that President Trump insists these days that he’s the chief executive Washington needs, the decisive dealmaker who, as he said during the campaign, “alone can fix it.” What America has seen so far is an inept White House led by a celebrity apprentice.https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/17/opinion/i-alone-can-fix-it-president-trump-white-house-apprentice.html
I've watched presidential press conferences going back to Nixon. Nothing I have ever seen was even remotely similar to what I witnessed on Thursday afternoon. I saw a man completely devoid of class, dignity and basic human compassion. I saw someone desperately insecure and thin skinned who lashes out at enemies real and imagined. So blinded by biases and hatred that he can't respond to perfectly reasonable questions (e.g. recent antisemitic attacks on synagogues) and instead devolves into personal attacks. My children, ages 12 and 10, don't deserve to grow up in a world where Donald Trump matters. God help all of us these next four years.
"I didn't do it, it was already broken". That is a response you would expect from a 5-year old, not the President of the United States. His so-called press conference was actually the complete unveiling of the mental demons that torture this president. I know some mental health professionals have criticized diagnosis in the press, or diagnosis from afar without personally interviewing and testing the patient, and one has stated that because trump does not suffering, but rather causes suffering, he does not fit the classic definition of mental impairment. Classic definitions don't apply here, HIPPA doesn't apply here, regular diagnostic protocols don't apply here. You have a man who can literally destroy the world, in a relative instant and not emotionally understand the import of his actions. You have a man that will remove generations of progress, almost single-handedly in the areas of environment, science, cross-cultural relations, human treatment and dignity, the list goes on. You have a man here that must be resisted by all the sane, humane people both in the USA and on this planet. Our democracy, our nation, our planet demands it.
The president’s agenda changes from minute to minute. He rambles incoherently at a news conference in which the only news was the odd behavior and rambling accusations that were spewing forth from our commander-in-chief.Things aren’t getting better. It’s only been a month, and already he can’t keep his own lies straight. He’s becoming more unhinged as the stresses increase and the pressures compound. When he breaks, it will be sudden and catastrophic.Republicans in Congress must put their misguided glee at being in the majority on hold. They’ve got to work with Democrats to form a unified opposition to the president, and to communicate to the White House that this administration is not sustainable.The emperor is naked on a world stage. He’s not respected by world leaders. Putin laughs at him as Russian spy boats prowl our shores. He’s not going to look out for the resentful folks in fly-over communities who think he’s got their backs. He’d sooner feed them to the wolves of Wall Street than look at them. He’s an existential threat to our democracy, and he must be stopped.
Yes, the first four weeks of Trump occupying the White House has been a complete mess. That's what happens when a petulant child who has narcissistic personality disorder and absolutely no relevant experience ends up in charge of our country.But don't let the chaos and initial incompetence distract us from the authoritarian threat that the Trump administration poses to our nation. While they have been bad at the day to day job of governance, Trump, Bannon, and the rest of the crew are effectively laying the groundwork of a world of "alternative facts" disconnected from reality, undermining the institutions that keep our government and society functioning, pushing the limits of making dissent illegitimate, and sowing fear among the American people.Given the authoritarian goals of Trump/Bannon, I have three major fears. One is what happens if there is a national disaster, terrorist attack, or military confrontation. Historically, authoritarians have used such things as an excuse to seize more power. I see little reason to think the same wouldn't happen here. Second, at some point fairly soon, the competent ideologues who have been waiting for someone like Trump will be in place to start enacting their agenda in a more competent and dangerous manner. Third, the GOP Congress is a bunch of sycophants who won't stand up to Trump, and he will have the opportunity to make the courts the same. None of this bodes well for our nation.https://www.facebook.com/WinningProgressive
The thing about an inheritance is that it illuminates the true character of the recipient. Obama guided us out of a time of, legitimate, turmoil. Trump inherited an America that was in ascendance everywhere but in his stump speeches. While Obama spent the last 8 years trying to make life better for the average guy, Trump spent those 8 years denying the Commander in Chief's birth rite. Now he wants us to rally around him because he's "not a bad guy.' Well, prove it. You can start with your tax returns. Some people take the things they inherit and try to do good with it, while others squander their largess and their lives.
As President, Trump is like a caged animal. He's not used to deep thinking and doing real work that a President must do. He's used to barking out orders and having others formulate the answers, no matter what they are, and do them.Apparently, he has no interest, nor does he care about the details. What he's learning, is that a President lives and works in the White House, 24/7, and has to read and question his advisors and experts in many areas in order to render a determination or make policy. He's apparently incapable of that.He thought it was all a game like his tv shows. However, this is the real world, and for him, he lacks the intellectual ability to handle the job. However, his lack of interest, and his actions and inactions can have disastrous consequences.
Trump thinks he can just give orders and everyone will jump to. On top of that, leaks from the White House portray someone who has frequent outbursts of anger, he is mentally incontinent, along with his narcissism.He is the typical schoolyard bully, we have much evidence of his past behavior to show such, and his supporters expect him to run an efficient parsimonious government. His own companies have not been run that way, he has relied on his deals to get by so far, it will not be long before others refuse his deals, just as the American Banks have.One suspects that most of his aides do not like him, and will cut his throat at the first opportunity.
Works for me, 7:27 AM!
Donald Trump’s golf course in Dubai opens two weeks after he ordered Yemen raid as a favorDisastrous Yemen raid benefited United Arab Emirates, where Dubai is locatedDonald Trump has been famously struggling to get his golf course in the lucrative city of Dubai opened for so long that it’s become the stuff of legend. Two weeks ago we reported that Trump may have ordered the botched U.S. military raid in Yemen as a favor to the government of the United Arab Emirates, in which Dubai is located, in an attempt to get his golf course opened. And in an eye popping development today, Trump’s golf course in Dubai has now officially opened.https://www.palmerreport.com/politics/donald-trumps-golf-course-in-dubai-opens-two-weeks-after-he-ordered-yemen-raid-as-a-favor/1597/

NOT LAST NIGHT.."the incident on 5 January""Three suspected neo-Nazis were arrested in January after a Gothenburg Asylum centre became the target of a homemade bomb attack, leaving one person seriously injured. "
Trump is still the 12 yr old little brat bully boy that was sent away to military school. He is stuck at 12 yrs old and will never grow up.
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
