Same Old Deadbeat Donald: Cheerleaders Sue, Staff Unpaid. 400+ Liens Against Properties. Where's The Money?







So Much For Financing His Own Campaign Because, Ya Know, He's Really Rich!


Cowardice
Are you serious?
Apologies for freedom—
I can’t handle this!

When freedom rings—
Answer the call!
On your feet!
Stand up tall!

Freedom’s on our shoulders.
USA!
Enemies of freedom
Face the music

Come on, boys—take ‘em down!
President Donald Trump knows how
To make America great
Deal from strength or get crushed every time…

Over here…
USA!
Over there…
USA!
Freedom and liberty everywhere…

Oh, say can you see
It’s not so easy
But we have to stand up tall and answer freedom’s call

USA! USA! USA!
We’re the land of the free and the brave… USA…
USA!
The stars and stripes are flying
Let’s celebrate our freedom
Inspire, proudly, freedom to the world
Ameri-tude…
USA!
American pride…

USA!
It’s attitude, it’s who we are
Stand up tall…
We’re the red, white, and blue
Fiercely free, that’s who!

Our colors don’t run, no sirree…
Over here…
USA!
Over there…
USA!

Freedom and liberty everywhere…
Oh, say can you see
It’s not so easy
But we have to stand up tall and answer freedom’s call!*


So what did these brave young cheerleaders get for preforming this bizarre mishmash?

The USA Freedom Kids said in a newly filed lawsuit the Trump campaign broke verbal agreements for performances at two events and refused to pay even a $2,500 stipend for the group’s travel expenses.


"A Verbal Agreement Isn't Worth The Paper It's Written On" - Sam Goldwin

Maybe Trump thought a verbal agreement wasn't worth anything, but things got worse for the little performers and it looked like Trump was actually trying to screw them:
When the USA Freedom Kids' manager complained that they hadn't been paid, Trump's campaign offered to have them set up a table and sell their merchandise at their next performance:
[Jeff] Popick agreed, reasoning that the group could net more than $2,500 in merchandise sales, but, the rally was “chaos,” Popick told The Daily Beast. There was no merchandise table, and it wouldn’t have mattered if there was one: security didn’t allow the girls to bring any of their merchandise into the Pensacola Bay Center. They left it outside in the parking lot, where all of it—the t-shirts, the CDs, the patriotic posters—was stolen while the girls performed their act, Popick says.
And he's stiffing his staff:
According to former employees, they were told they would be paid when Corey Lewandowski was campaign manager. But Paul Manafort, who replaced Lewandowski in July, said the staffers would remain unpaid.
Wonkette:
Others who, according to the FEC filings, have not been paid include finance chairman Steven Mnuchin, national political director Rick Wiley and senior adviser Barry Bennett, who were not available for comment. Nor were Manafort, Gates and Clark.

Many of Donald Trump's Washington, D.C., policy staffers quit working for the campaign after not being paid or publicly recognized, according to a new report in The Washington Post.
It’s a complete disaster,” a campaign adviser told the Post. “They use and abuse people. The policy office fell apart in August when the promised checks weren’t delivered.”

The Deadbeat Of Real Estate


"Is he that rich,
maybe he's poor,
'til he reveals his returns,
who can be sure?"

- Barbra Streisand sings to the tune of "Send In The Clowns"

For decades, Trump has been known in real estate circles as a deadbeat: with over 400 liens against his properties, by waiters, contractors, and even some his own lawyers for non payment, the man has a lot of splainin' to do to supporters who look upon him as a successful businessman.
An exclusive USA TODAY analysis of legal filings across the United States finds that the [then] presumptive Republican presidential nominee and his businesses have been involved in at least 3,500 legal actions in federal and state courts during the past three decades. They range from skirmishes with casino patrons to million-dollar real estate suits to personal defamation lawsuits.

Some of lawsuits involved the infamous Trump modus operandi: run them down until they go bankrupt with legal fees.

Will Trump surrogates and spokespeople get paid? Supposedly they are ... for now, but time will tell: in eight weeks, Trump might see another battery of lawsuits.

So where does the money go?

Getting something for nothing is lucrative, especially for a man like Donald Trump. Trump's pockets are full of unspent money for projects, tons of money from Trump Branding (mostly in Muslim countries!) and deals where the deposits were lost (to him)




A take on Trump's finances:

- He's worth a lot less than he says he is - maybe not even a billion.
- most of his money has been filtered through his branding to offshore accounts.
- he has dealings with many of the people/countries he excoriates.
- he's had more failures than successes
- his convoluted finances hide that fact that he is (besides the offshore accounts) hocked up to the hilt and in debt to various shady businesses since banks refuse to loan him money.**
- he has piled convoluted deal unto convoluted so that auditing is inevitable and he will never release his returns - keeping his image in his own hands.

There is some irony in the fact that a self-proclaimed business whiz is a deadbeat. Either that or with hundreds of "no-pay-for-shoddy-work" excuses, he demonstrates just how bad he is in scrutinizing potential employees and contractors.

Will surrogates and upper level campaign staff turn on him? Doubtful. They don't want to join the "ranks of rubes/" - the millions who have been duped into thinking that Trump is "the man," because he says so.

Meantime, the suits keep piling up from outside the campaign.

Let's hope the cheerleaders win their suit - after The Donald loses his election.

*Oh, and the Trump campaign has just gotten hit with copyright infringement, since the song itself was taken directly from Irving Berlin's "Over There" and not in public domain.

**Mother Jones: "Trump's disclosure form lists 16 loans from 11 different lenders, totaling at least $335 million, and the aggregate amount is likely much more." His chief lender is the controversial Deutsche Bank which has paid billions in fines for rigging interest rates.

Trump And Supporters Going To The Dogs: Both The Scariest Video and Stupid Geography Show How Low The IQs Can Go!





It's no secret that the demographics of Trumps supporters show some people have certain intellectual challenges, but the latest video of a "focus group" shows that his people will believe anything the Donald puts forth.

Anything.

Including gun dispensers in women's restrooms (to fend off male preditors)and port-o-potties that help whisk away illegal aliens.

Then there's the "Invisible Wall" giving a zap to collared Mexicans.

And houses that lock in illegal domestics and (as the same with the port-o-potties) are taken back to Mexico.

The entire troll is cringe-enducing, with Triumph astounded at the stupidity of these voters.

Triumph the Comic Insult Dog was giving his "poop opinion" throughout the whole thing, but some idiotic comments left him speechless (see below).

After laughing so hard I almost wet my jeans, I decided that the whole thing was an elaborate joke: I googled and googled and googled to find out if the supporters were merely playing parts.

They weren't.

The horror of the stupidity and gullibility is still settling in. I was going to include a terrifying Jay Leno JayWalking clip in comparison, but that would render the reader comatose with fright.

When you view the video, notice that the group repeated the lame reasons for liking Trump: "not a politician", "says what's on his mind", "says what we want to hear," "likes Trump's 'plans'" these reasons have very little substance, giving the supporters the appearance of parrots - or rather Trumpbots.

In the video, notice that not one person objected to force, violence or discrimination. They were, in effect, throwing out basic human rights in throwing people out of the country, treating them like Jews at Auschwitz, while at the same time thinking that no one would object to the treatment. Locking people up, then carting them away like animals is, of course, what Trump has been advocating all along.

And speaking of animals...

Trump Apologizes For Interns' Stupidity But In The Process, Reveals His Own
From The Philipine Star:

According to Agence France-Presse, the Republican Party presidential bet Donald Trump strengthened his fight against immigrants in his rally in Portland, Maine on Thursday (Aug. 4). “We are letting people come in from terrorist nations that shouldn’t be allowed because you can’t vet them,” said Trump. He then named these countries as Afghanistan, Iraq, Morocco, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, Uzbekistan, Yemen and the Philippines, and piped up, “We’re dealing with animals.”
The uproar was extremely swift and palpable:

President of the Philipines, Rodrigo R. Duterte, challenged Donald Trump to a fistfight and a legislator is proposing Trump be banned from entering the country.

Irony on many levels: Duterte is considered the Philipines Donald Trump for his brash and crude ways and Trump has "branded" a 56-story residential tower in Manila. But the website for the tower has this to say:

In a statement prepared for the event, Donald Trump expressed faith in his partners and said "there will be nothing like it in the Philippines...this will be one of the most significant buildings anywhere in Asia."




In the first "apology" ever to come out of Trump, it's become apparent that The Donald may be as gullible as his supporters and will believe anything his extremely stupid interns will put forth:

Trump, in a statement released today, said that his campaign interns fed him the wrong information, leading him to believe that the entire Philippines was a Muslim country and that it was one of the Republics located in the Middle East.(emphasis mine)
This has elicited a WTF heard round the world. Is he taking geography lessons from Sarah I-can-see-Russia-from-my-house Palin?

The fact that the above excuse was even broadcast was insanely stupid.

It Runs In The Campaign Family

After incorrectly asserting during a CNN appearance on Saturday that President Barack Obama had invaded Afghanistan, Pierson showed up Sunday on Fox News to defend Donald Trump's decision not to release his tax returns.
During the segment with FOX's Arthel Neville (no FOX softballer), Pierson dismissed the idea of candidates releasing their tax returns as a "novelty". And when Neville countered that it has been done for 50 years, Pierson stated that it was a "novelty tradition." 

???WTF??

No knowledge of history. No knowledge of geography. No knowledge of reasoning.

We're waiting for the fat lady to sing. PLEASE! 






Too Little Too Late: The Disingenuous Donald Trump Tries A Pivot While The Fat Lady Is Getting Ready To Sing.




The statue was the coup de gras.

It's fitting that the most outlandishly crass depiction of a Presidential hopeful in this country's history matches the most outlandishly crass candidate in this country's history. The man who has humiliated the country is now being humiliated on an epic scale.

Of course, while few candidates deserve to be treated so rudely, the depiction of a naked Donald Trump titled "The Emperor Has No Balls" can be taken as a sign that the country has had enough of Trump ... As well as his supporters.

It's been pointed out (HERE) that many of his supporters are a hodgepodge of classless and clueless rubes that The Donald has defrauded into thinking that he "alone" can save the country. That the Christian Right has embraced him (as a "baby Christian") says a lot about how they will treat Hillary in the future (Anti-Christ first comes to mind). The man with questionable morals has sunk lower than the rudest fire and brimstone Southern Baptist preacher, but they are OK with that.

The statue has, of course, been depicted as sinking to Trump's level and a crude mistake. But think of it as a desperate sigh of relief that the man won't get to the White House. It's a post-election release of tension before the election. It's a sign that Americans can laugh at the hideous creature of their own making.

And Now "The Pivot"
It's a turnaround that makes Trump lose his balance and fall off his own self-made pedestal.

Because very few believe it. That the man with unbelievable confidence in himself has voiced "regrets" is inconceivable. Even his clueless supporters deserve better than a cowardly afterthought. His flip-flops are reported to be so major and well put, they will be received as if he meant them all along. 

Right. Even his stalwart supporters have better memories than that. 


Imagine Trump never said another derogatory thing about women. He’d still be the guy who lashed out at Fox News host Megyn Kelly by suggesting she asked tough questions because of her menstrual cycle. And he’d still be the guy who has at various points called individual women “pig,” “dog” and “fat slob.”
Imagine that Trump never uttered an unkind words about Latinos. He’d still be the guy who claimed that Mexico was sending rapists across the border, who thought he could court Hispanic voters by eating a taco salad on Cinco de Mayo and who questioned the integrity of a judge presiding over an anti-Trump lawsuit because of the judge’s Mexican heritage.

And his "pivot" is at times, like Trump, bizarre: 
West Bend — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump went to the suburbs Tuesday night to talk about America's inner cities, court African-American voters and lay out a plan to restore law and order in the country.

West Bend is a predominantly white suburb: who the hell is he talking to? And he falsely told African Americans that they were so bad off that they had nothing to lose by voting for him. 

Some thoughts by former supporters:

“When he initially began to run, he gave voice to a lot of the frustrations that I was feeling about how government is working or more to the point not working,” focus group member Michael said. “But since then, he’s been running as a 12-year-old and changes his positions every news cycle, so you don’t even know where he stands on the issues.”
"The more he made it about his personality, the less likely that I am to vote for him and it seems like everyone else is going in the same direction here.”

And with the direction Trump's campaign is going, the late-term shake-up in staff says a lot to people:

A Virginia Republican“You can keep moving people in and out of the car, but so long as the drunk guy is driving it while blindfolded, the ride probably isn't going to get any smoother.”
"Break Glass In Case OF Emergency"

That's what Republican leaders are calling the strategy to steer resources away from Trump and funnel them to Republicans whose political careers are in danger of going down with the ship. Few have hopes that a proper "pivot" along with major flip-flops will halt the downward spiral Trump has engendered. 

Epic public humiliation. Weak turnaround. Supporter defections. GOP despair.

Some Delusions Are More Harmful Than Others: a The Case of Donald Trump vs Florence Foster Jenkins.





"Every voice deserves to be heard." is the tag line to Meryl Streep's latest opus, FLORENCE Foster Jenkins. That may be true for matters of art, but is it true for elections and the electorate?

People might say that it all depends upon the voice.

Florence Foster Jenkins was deluded in thinking that she was a great opera singer. She received boos and laughter, while telling people that some people were mere "hoodlums" sent by "rivals."

Jenkins was the very first camp artist: her singing was so bad that it was considered good entertainment. Her "life's achievement" at Carnegie Hall was sold out in advance because celebrities (including Cole Porter) wanted to be entertained by a woman with an indomitable spirit. 




The timing of the movie couldn't have  been more perfect: juxtaposed against Trump and his campaign, it gives a picture of a much more benign delusion than Trump's

Who's Voice?

As far as deserving to be heard, in politics it not only depends upon the voice, but what/who is causing it to be used. Who thinks it's THEIR VOICE?

In Trump's case, the delusion is on both sides: The fact that Trump's hardcore fans blithely dismiss his gaffs, inexperience, contradictions and even his fraudulent behavior shows that they are deluding themselves that they are worthy of a voice.

It is self-delusion fueled by mass delusion. 


As numbers drop for The Donald and climb for Hillary, one wonders what a monumental waste Donald Trump has been to America. True, part of America found its "voice" (like Jenkins ) but is it a part that's reasoning or just reactionary?

It may sound elitist and discriminatory, but does that kind of voice deserve a chance to be heard to the extent that a boldly unreasoning, uneducated and exceptionally bigoted voice deserves to be heard in a level equal to the rest of the populace?

Simply put, do fear, hatred and bigotry DESERVE to have a voice and be heard?


Trump rallies celebrated their "voice" with contempt for everything outside their limited ken and environment. They only proved that if an undignified, crass and clueless lot screams loud enough, it will be heard just as offensive (and earsplitting) music from a boombox has to be heard by unwitting passengers on a crowded bus. 

A Singular Voice for a Singular Person

The wall between Trump's narcissism and his patriotism is exceptionally thin. He is quick to call all critics "losers" and keeps on attacking them long after the situation is gone. Criticism of anything he is associated with is personal. When asked what he wanted people to take away from the convention, he said simply "that people like me." No mention of the Republican platform or any issues. To Trump, the election is simply a popularity contest. 

What drives Trump's delusions has been a matter of debate for years,* but it is clear that his delusions drive other delusions, forming a very toxic mess.

Too Far Gone?

Along the campaign trail, Trump's critics have tried to point out when he has gone too far on issues. The "I alone can fix..." the ills of the country, as Clinton, said, raised all sorts of red flags, leaving his stalwart fans looking delusional themselves. Are they too far gone in their zeal for an ideal of bigotry and isolation? Are they now totally blind to Trump's blind vanity?

Back in June, George Will called Trump a "bloviating ignoramus" and Trump shot back with his usual "Loser" response. 




Such a response is undignified to say the least. But Trump's converts don't like dignity, they don't like responsible reasoning and they like the talk, as unreasoning as it sounds. 

Below is a recording of the real Florence Foster Jenkins singing (Florence Foster Jenkins Massacres Mozart) accompanied by some unbelieving and distraught cats. 

As a reasoning human  being, which would you rather hear again - Jenkins or Trump?



*Some of Jenkins' delusions could be attributed to the fact that she contracted syphilis at an early age, and that the toxic combination of mercury and arsenic along with tertiary syphilis were far too much to bear. It has not yet been determined if Donald Ttump also suffers from tertiary syphilis, because his delusions of greatness started very early on in life and his business career.

The Next Deadly Pandemic: Rheumatoid Trumpitis






Major Symptom:


RHEUMATOID TRUMPITIS  causes a chronic pain in the ass while simultaneously making the afflicted person a pain in the ass. 

Forget AIDS! Forget Ebola! Forget the Black Plague! The worst pandemic to hit mankind is the deadly ...

RHEUMATOID TRUMPITIS

Never in the history of the world has there been such a devastating disease! And of all the world's plagues, this one is most assuredly brought on by man himself and not by God - Pat Robertson said so. 

Causes: nature or nurture?

It would s difficult cult to determine whether or not RT is hereditary or developed. We do know that it can be transmitted once it develops to a certain stage. Signs of the dreaded disease have occurred in infants (having a predeliction for reflective, shiny objects, usually gold plated).

Whatever the cause, RT is considered incurable, according to Dr OZ - and who is always right (unfortunately, a primary symptom of the disease) and may slowly but surely take over the world.

And while the cause of this particular condition is not known, what is evident is that it is spread by sheer force of obnoxious ego.

Missionaries have been sent to various third world countries, blaming the pandemic on Hillary Rodham Clinton and, of course, the gays. They tell the people that merely watching the two on television, in political speeches and performing in musicals such as Oklahoma!, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and South Pacific can trigger the condition.* Africa has been put on alert, allowing no one into its countries sporting rainbow-patterned shirts and foreigners whose initials are HRC. 

The afflicted suffer from:

Symptom #2: The affinity to draw crowds of people who have paintings of clowns on black velvet in their trailer's loving room.
#3: Poor spelling and grammar - even in Spanish
#4: The belief that Donald Trump is not Elmer Gantry but a true savior. 
#5: a tendency to confuse Donald trump with David Duke. 
#6: Dining on tacos everyday while espousing affinity of Hispanics
#7: Keeping 1000 SP 18KT Gold Premium Metalic spray paint on hand - for that decorator urge, just in case.
#8: Asking for passports of everyone approaching them within a 125' radius. 
#9: Referring to all daughters as having a "rack"
#10: Having actually subscribed to Sarah Palin's Channel - after it went defunct.
#11: Ending all arguments with "LOSER!"
#12: Believing that Donald Trump will obliterate left-wing Christian persecution (as if it actually existed)
#13: Swirling ten hairs atop their head for that cotton candy look (better done when bald). 
#14: Unrelenting narcissism causing motor accidents (looking only into rear view mirrors) 
#15: Claiming to have the worlds greatest memory (unless making a deposition in a lawsuit )
#16: Refusing to divulge your financial status while telling people you're obscenely rich. 
#17: Supporting small businesses by not paying for their services
#18: Having the I.Q. equivalent to that of a dead battery.


The animosity created by the disease will definitely result in wars, with everyone thinking that they are the center of the universe and should be listened to. The cacophony of bloviating alone will cause deafness. And while production of mirrors will be at an all time high, the supply will not meet the demand - violence and looting will erupt. Shards of broken mirrors will henceforth be kept in elaborate reliquaries. 

Although there is no known cure, the preventative - or PreP - exists, but it is severe:

Tuning out all media until after November 8, 2016.

Good Luck.



*The same goes for every SNL sketch ever written as well as every Stephen Colbert appearance.

"He STILL Killed Scalia!" The Obama Conspiracy Machine: Will It Continue After The Awards Are Handed Out?




Disassociated Press:

"I am so very honored that you have chosen Obama Killed Scalia With A Frozen Dart Gun as Best Conspiracy Theory of 2016! It warms my heart to know that you like me! You really like me!" 
- Alex Jones, receiving his golden Marty (aka The Martian Award For Conspiratorial Excellence)
Jones' win capped eight years of amazingly hysterical theories from Obama being a Lizard King to Antonin Scalia's death. 


Caption: A Crying Alex Jones? The Martys have become waaay too apolitical 

Yes the Academy Awards had something to do with this article, primarily in opining: what if they gave out awards for such lunacy? 

This year's conspiracy theories, especially about Obama (who else?) certainly deserve recognition.

The current frontrunner:

The National Rifle Association has come out since Scalia's death to warn that the 2nd Amendment is now in danger. With Barack Obama reportedly willing to spend billions of dollars in 2017 to take away Americans rights we have to ask, did the Obama administration have Judge Scalia killed? It surely wouldn't be the 1st time govt had political opposition killed.
By a poisoned frozen dart no less.




UPDATE: Obama killed Scalia as a human sacrifice for a pagan ritual. Pastor Rick Wiles says so!

It makes no difference that Scalia's own son and doctor declared his death to be of natural causes and that conspiracy theories were "a hurtful distraction" from his  father's legacy. The conspiracy theorists are now having a field day. 

You just get used to this, ‘Scalia found, it’s natural, nothing going on here, he just died naturally,’” Jones said. “And you’re like, ‘Whoa. Red flag.’ Then you realize, Obama is one vote away from being able to ban guns, open the borders and actually have the court engage in its agenda and now Scalia dies. I mean, this is hard core.”

So what makes President Obama the target of these conspiracies? The reasons vary, but the fact is that the President is arguably the most conspiracy theory-ridden person in history. The Mother Jones article and graph Chart: Almost Every Obama Conspiracy Theory Ever cites 34 theories in just his first term.
Most of these bizarre and inane theories still carry on to this day:

- Obama is a secret Muslim and was sworn in for his first term on a Quran. If he did, don't you think Pastor Rick Warren would have noticed it? The Quran is not as hefty in volume as the Bible. But wait: it must have been blasphemously HIDDEN in a bible!!

- Obama will have turned the U.S. into a Muslim nation by allowing 100 million Muslims into the country. That means that every fourth person you see is really Muslim, making at least five of the Duggar family suspect.

- Obama married his college roommate, a man from Pakistan. The photo him of him sitting in his roommate's lap should be proof enough!!

 - Obama is the son of Malcolm X. This is a theory provided by that wonderful Muslim-lover, Pam Geller.

- Obama had a ghostwriter for everything he wrote, including the love letters to his college sweetheart. Of course, they were written by chum Roger Ayles who wrote Obama's book "Dreams From My Father."

- Obama caused Hurricane Sandy using a Pentagon weather modification project through HAARP. He wanted to look much better in his response than George Bush during Katrina - as if that wouldn't have been easy. 

- Rev. Jeremiah Wright helped Obama cover up his homosexuality. It seems the astute reverend offered instruction to black gays on how to live closeted lives while still performing their perverted homosexual activities. This gem comes, of course, from World Net Daily, so it just has to be trusted!

- As a teenager, Obama was teleported to Mars! Real "time travelers" report seeing him on Mars. He was serving as a guinea pig in a top-secret CIA mission to colonize the planet. As one wag put it, he was really trying to socialize Martian medicine.

- Obama is really a lizard king. Truly! It's all there in one astounding book: The Lizard King: The Shocking Inside Account of Obama's True Intergalactic Ambitions by an Anonymous White House Staffer. It seems that there are secret codes hidden in the Bible (oh, that odious book!) that point to Obama and his lizard ancestry and his plans to take over the entire galaxy!

And the most durable of conspiracy theories: Obama is the Antichrist! The Proof? Watch this video and be amazed!!





Obama and Guns

It's no secret that the President doesn't like guns very much and that he is for gun control. The NRA hates him, of course and never denounces the the conspiracy nuts, but in the gun control issue, what is the REAL conspiracy? 

There are people who oppose Obama because they actually LIKE guns, no, they LOVE guns. Guns rule! They are people who LOVE killing things. Few guns are actually bought for protection (although the NRA says that most guns are). Gun nuts love guns because they like shooting at things, obliterating their targets with as many bullets as possible. "Clean" one-shot killings are only performed on birds the gunman eventually eats (avoiding picking out bullets from the meat) or on fur-bearing animals so as to make the pelt more saleable. Shooting things has not been considered a sport, since "sport" implies that the bird or animal being shot at might have a chance to escape being blown to smithereens. Today's guns, however, make that "chance" nearly impossible. 

Gun owners worship their firearms and their favorite God is Rambo Jesus (like the Jesus of Gen. Jerry Boykin who says that He will return carrying an AR-15). They even like shooting Santa Claus. And remember, Pastor Gary Cass says "You can't be Christian if you don't own a gun"*

Conspiracy: the gun nuts want to rule the world with their guns... and their Bibles, just like Obama said they would.

The Top Conspiracy Theorists Of All Time

When are Alex Jones and Glenn Beck going to get married? They think so much alike, it's scary. And they both live on conspiracy theories concerning Obama and liberals.**

Alex Jones: Obama Murdered Justice Scalia and Donald Trump May Be Next

Glenn Beck: attributes Scalia's death as God's warning to Americans:
“I don’t want to assume that I know his plan, but I will tell you this,” he said, transitioning to speak from the perspective of God. “I just woke the American people up. I took them out of the game show moment and woke enough of them up to say, ‘Look how close your liberty is to being lost. You now have lost your liberty.’”

and then there's Michele Bachmann: since Obama is the Antichrist, he is capable of anything. 

January 20, 2017

When Obama relinquishes office, what will these people do? Will the Obama Conspiracy Awards be given out when it's the end of our world? As Michele  Bachmann suggests, with Obama becoming the Secretary General of the United Nations and ushering us all into Armaggedon, he ...

The end of our world, or (hopefully) the end of theirs?


* As opposed to Pope Francis who says that gun owners are hypocrites and not Christians! Cass and his ilk REALLY hate Francis!
**Maybe they really are married and have a conspiracy of their own: producing enough conspiracy theories to confuse everyone, making them extremely paranoid, enabling them to take over the world!

Trump As The Golden Calf: How Many Angry, Old, White And Classless Rubes Are There?





UPDATE: Trump's base has now been solidified: the latest endorsement is from ...

The National Enquirer

Figures.

“I understand and respect the people who did vote for him. I know many of them. They are not racists or crazies or stupid. While many people call The Donald a fraud or a con-man, there are a lot of voters out there who think they have been conned election after election.” - Carly Fiorina, CPAC - Mar.4)
Ahem, tell that to the rest of the country, Carly. Part of the country that voted George W. Bush into office TWICE, is now making the rest of America dumbfounded with its support of Trump. Trump has now become an obnoxious golden calf: some people's desperate attempt to create a new authority, a new idol because they can't understand America itself and stand stewing in their isolation and (frankly) their stupidity.

It's Follow THE MOUTH, not Follow the Leader. 

Max Ehrenfreund of the Washington Post ...
"... spoke to a number of psychologists and came up with three key sources of Mr Trump's appeal. "We like people who talk big," he writes. "We like people who tell us that our problems are simple and easy to solve, even when they aren't. And we don't like people who don't look like us."
In other words, they'll take loudmouthed white con man "telling it like it is," but don't particularly know (or care) what "it" is. 

Trump Supporters: 

"I have faith that he will learn and develop the policies that will make America the superpower that we want it to be." 

"You get what he really believes in, even if everything that he says isn't what is the right thing exactly."

Unfortunately, Trump is not registering for a class in U.S. Presidency 101 and believes in nothing but himself. The loud Mouth, with all of its insults, crudities, contradictions and outright lies is LOUD. To his supporters, that's what counts. 
Trump Demographics 
 

The following poll numbers are culled from MSNBC, Real Clear Politics, YouGov, and (Public Policy Polling which is why some categories do not total 100.

Poor Agrabah. It's the fictional country of Disneys Aladdin. What's next? Annihilating Neverland?

While the polls don't give a clear "typical" Trump supporter, they do look predominantly like uneducated slobs (Demographics #1), angry old white men (Demographics #2) or just plain white trash (Demographics #3). Oh, then there's the evangelical group (Demographics #4)






The Way Things Are

It isn't that Trump's supporters don't have a grip on reality, it's just that they only have a grip on their own reality. The Mouth gives them what they want to hear in the most simplistic terms, keeps them isolated from what's happening in the rest of the country and that's just fine with them. So what if The Mouth has no diplomatic skills? So what if The Mouth has no experience in lawmaking whatsoever? So what if The Mouth might gild everything in the White House and put slot machines in the East Room? Who cares about all that? He's "telling it like it is." 

The reality is that they don't have a clue as to what "it" is. "It" involves experience - the biggest thing lacking in Trump. What if the board of directors of a company were so distrusting of executives, they would not hire an executive to run the company? Trump himself would never hire someone inexperienced (unless, of course, it was for Trump University). 

Another reality, Trump supporters: he has offended so many Americans, so many lawmakers, has gotten such bad publicity (e.g. Trump University class action law suit), that the delegates won in the primaries might change their minds at the last minute. Remember: after the first vote on the floor of the convention, delegates are free to vote for whomever they choose. The RNC could look like Trump- inspired circus clowns after the first contentious vote, hundreds of people shouting at each other, unfettered by their pledges to back Trump. 

Cowboy Diplomacy

Another point the polls make is that Trump supporters care not for any kind of diplomacy on the part of the President. George W. Bush's Cowboy Diplomacy ("Shoot first, ask questions later') has been embedded in their minds since 9/11. That's certainly a hit with the NRA, but with many other countries.



God Is On His Side

So as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and radio and TV hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Greta Van Susteren, Bill O’Reilly, Megyn Kelly, and Sean Hannity ask why evangelicals support Trump – the answer can be found in that poll we did three decades ago. Trump is the “liberator” and “defender” they believe really will “Make America Great Again!”


Another unreasonable position for Trump supporters comes from the evangelicals: he is not the golden calf, but the Messiah, come to rescue them from the enemies of religious freedom. 

That's just what America needs: a crude, egotistical, loud-mouthed Messiah.
