Hola a todos. I recently received a strange e-mail solicitation to join the corrupt and imperialistic Democratic Party. WTF? The solicitation came with the following testimonial:
I was seriously traumatized by the election of Trump. He terrifies me in a way I have never been before. I disliked George W Bush but never felt he could totally destroy our country. Trump currently has one Supreme Court opening to fill, possibly two unless Ruth Ginsburg can hold on for 4 years. What is more important is because of the obstruction of the Republicans the past 8 years he has 100 judges to appoint. This crazy man and his minions could change our country for years to come in terms of the judiciary. The
foreign policy [Ed. I prefer the words "international policy" as the word "foreign" has negative connations (I don't need to explain that, do I?)] implications go without saying. If we can go 4 years of him without being attacked it will be amazing. Any brown, black, yellow, LGBT [Ed. Brand LGBTTM is the hijacking of the original gay and lesbian (GLBTQ) movement] or women need to run for the hills. Trump, or in the case of an impeachment, Pence will make it intolerable to live here. I am sure more people feel this way. I am just trying to figure out how to fight them, living in a red state full of crazy Trump supporters who hate science, education and liberals of any kind. I am coming out from under my rock, sort of. Still can’t bring myself to read the front page of the NYT which I have been getting most of my life. I have always felt well informed. I can’t bear to see him on TV, I can’t listen to Kelly Anne. I can see this being really emotionally difficult the next 4 years, along with worrying about being blown to bits after a tweet.
My response: Why are you seriously traumatised? You didn’t expect this to happen as some of us did who were not living under a rock the 8 long years of the imperialistic Obama regime (also known as Bush II)? I even wrote an article about the possibility of a Trump presidency sometime back (¿Trump Presidente?). I and most of the people I know are not “seriously traumatised.” We expected this in a way. (Although my neighbour, a Hillarybot, she’s another story. She’s completely flipped out to the point that she’s turned to organised religion and is now devout. Loca.) Or were you living in Denial under your rock that Trump could not or would never be (s)elected in this weird way where he loses the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes that we know of but “wins” in the outdated Electoral College? You thought that your war criminal Hillary automatically had la casa blanca and would be the next presidente?
What is “running for the hills” going to do, people? Do you expect the entire population of The Cesspool/the US to “run for the hills?” And you don’t think the Trump regime can find you in the hills? You’d have to come out of those hills to get food and other necessities at some point. This thinking of “running for the hills” — which I’m hearing more of — is ludicrous. Where have you and others like you been since 2000? Under that rock you mentioned that you’re “sorta of” coming out from under?
But I have to say that you’re typical of the fake-progressives and fake-liberals who chose to go into a deep sleep for the past 8 years because your messiah Obama who has that “D” next to his name — when in reality he’s been the best Republican president the Republicans could have ever asked for — was in office. The fake-liberals and fake-progressives like yourself have paid little attention to what he’s done — lived under a rock while calling yourselves “a liberal” or “a progressive” — because their thinking seemed to be “we’re all safe now and can go back to sleep because there’s a Democrat en la casa blanca.” Other fake-progressives and fake-liberals have made a bank of excuses for messiah Obama’s Bush-clone policies/actions, an the expansion of the Bush policies that they protested under Bush. Hypocrites! I suppose people living under a rock wouldn’t notice any of that. You don’t think that Bush and (presumably your) Obama have already destroyed this country? The US has been a Cesspool since at least 2000. I suppose you haven’t heard about this either (from 2014):
“A new study from Princeton and Northwestern Universities has found that the United States’ government more closely resembles an Oligarchy or a Corporatocracy than a Republic or Democracy….The researchers write, “The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.”—Princeton and Northwestern Universities’ study
It seems to me that you and many others have been in a state of mass Denial under your rock since Obama took office. And I would point out that Obama’s nominees to the US Supreme Court have been pro-Establishment conservatives. Just like Obama, his nominees to the US Supreme Court are not genuine liberals or genuine progressives, as some stupid people (the partisan far-right comes to mind) think they are. In “let’s rub each other’s back” style, Obama’s US Supreme Court nominees have given him what they think he’s wanted from them.
There’s always the possibility of another 911 Inside Job to get the sheeple afraid of their own shadow (“terror, terror, terror” 24-hours a day) and geared up to hate on yet another group to get the sheeple in lockstep behind messiah Trump as his devout boot lickers. Also, why did you use that “LGBT” nonsense instead of GLBTQ? Because “everybody else uses it” and you wanted to fit in with the sheeple? And you call yourself a “liberal?” In reality, you’re a typical partisan Democrat like most fake-progressives and fake-liberals.
And it grieves me so that you haven’t been able to bring yourself to read the front page (is that all you were reading?) of that corporatist publication called the NYT. I’d like to point out that there are far better news sources out there than the NYT.
Also, do you not recall that your corrupt Democrats served as employees and enablers during the entire length of the illegitimate Bush Regime and gave GWBush whatever he wanted. Ms Pelosi (D) even took impeachment “off the table” and we later saw pictures of Pelosi and Bush together as if they were best of friends. It’s not all about those nasty Republicans (whom I can’t stand) but I can’t stand your cesspool of a party either. In reality, these Democrats and Republicans are all amigos despite their theatre of opposition to the contrary for the benefit of gullible suckers like you and other fake-liberals and fake-progressives. These basura party together. Not reading the front page of a corporatist rag is not going to help anything. That’s more living under your rock/Denial which has been your way of living for years.
I can’t offer any sympathy to you because people like you annoy me. You are the fake liberals and fake progressives I can’t stand and that I’ve written about. Genuine progressives (there’s approximately 3 of us world-wide) and genuine liberals would have stayed informed the entire length of the Obama regime — and would have protested Obama et al (as I’ve done) for expanding on the policies of the illegitimate Bush regime — rather than living under your comfy rock. Unfortunately, Denial is a very comfortable place for many people such as yourself. You are part of the problem. “Feeling well informed” and being well-informed can be two different things. I sense you’re in the former category since you’ve admitted to being under a rock.
I’m not saying this will happen but frankly it won’t surprise me in the least if and when Trump announces that there will be no senate confirmation hearings for his nominees and the billionaire basura he’s nominated will take office upon his Executive Order. Someone may say, “He can’t do that!” You wanna bet? Who would stop this arrogant egomaniac schizophrenic bully (and that doesn’t even begin to cover it)? I’ve come to expect the worst from all of these D and R rotted trash/corporate parasites and you and others should too if you expect to view them realistically. How much more does one need to see to understand that?
Although upon reflection, I don’t know why Trump would be the least bit concerned about the senate confirmation hearings. Won’t it be one big ass-eating session? I suspect so. They usually are. I would think most or all of his nominees would breeze on through. I suspect the hearings will go something like this:
Senator (insert name; doesn’t matter which name it is) says:
“Thank you so much for coming here today your esteemed and distinguished worship. It is such an honour, privilege and sincere pleasure for us to meet such a highly-regarded billionaire and someone of such distinguished and honourable character that our very fine and highly-regarded and esteemed new president Trump has nominated. Your part of this
charade hearing shouldn’t take long. We just have a few perfunctory questions for you (the same ones we’re asking everybody else), your distinguished worship.
Then at end of this charade:
Senator (insert name) says:
“Even though we have some small concerns about you (unspoken: we Democrats have to give some appearance of opposition for corporate media theatre purposes and to pacify our consistently stupid and gullible base), we think that president Trump should have who he wants in his cabinet, your esteemed worship. (Unspoken: most of our base will be pissed off with us but that’s not the least of our concerns because most of these stupid brainwashed people always vote for us no matter what we do as they scream, “Do you want a Republican?” even though most of us Democrats are Republicans. We’re just too damn lazy to re-register and switch parties. And we have to keep up this partisan image as long as possible for the benefit of stupid partisan people who consistently far for this charade). Thank you, thank you, thank you, your worship for coming here today. (Broad smiles all around signaling we have every intent to confirm/appoint you).”
Oh and by the way, you don’t have to listen to that Kelly Ann if you watch an español-language network. They cut her off in midstream and begin translating what la basura says, if that’s any consolation. With any of these political D and R trash, I often find it’s best to read what they said from some other credible source than to actually listen to these basura. I don’t listen to any of these corporate parasite politicians because all they spew are lies (which they won’t be challenged on), feel-good pabulum, empty words and bull shit. I don’t have the time or patience for that. They’re too fucking annoying to listen to. All they are are sales people/marketing people for their pathetic corrupt party and its barbaric imperialistic agenda of killing innocent people in the Middle East and elsewhere per the goals of the PNAC agenda (the Project For The New American Century). I haven’t listened to anything that messiah Obama has said during his eight years — and when I see him I see George W Bush (I couldn’t listen to Bush either) because Obama has expanded Bush’s policies/agenda — but I’ve kept well-informed and have read what Obama said from credible sources. You might want to try that. It’s worked well for me and the people I know who do the same. Chau.—el barrio rosa
