Our Uncouth and Disrespectful POTUS (BLOTUS)…

President Trump launched personal attacks against us Thursday, but our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal. America’s leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president. We have our doubts, but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, “Morning Joe.”

The BLOTUS’ behavior is indeed unmoored from reality. During the race to the presidency the BLOTUS showed us over, and over, and over again that he was unfit for the presidency of the already greatest nation on earth. Yet a minority of our population was able to elect him president. Largely thanks to gerrymandering, which tipped the outdated Electoral College in his favor.

Not only does a majority of our own population serious question the BLOTUS’ judgment and integrity so do many other nations of the world.

Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough are absolutely right, and, every American who truly values the principles and moral values this nation was founded on ought to be concerned as well.

It is very likely Trump, possibly the result of his privileged upbringing and life experiences, sees authority and authoritarianism as the path to an improved societal condition. But I digress, Please click HERE to read the complete article.

 

Trump Must Go, If The Nation Is Fortunate He’ll Resign… SOON

Trump is a vulgar, reprehensible, detestable, pathetic excuse for a human being. But what is most troubling are the millions of  US citizens who either condone or tolerate tRump’s vulgarity and lies.

I am, for the first time in my life thoroughly ashamed of the President of The United States, a man who represents all Americans.  He certainly does not represent my values and principles. However, and certanly more important is that fact he sure does not represent the values  and principles of our founding fathers.

Trump is not deserving of the respect he so craves. Rather he has earned the disdain of decent folks everywhere, here and across the globe. As he seeks to destroy all that is good about America we, the true keepers of our heritage , MUST increase resistance and civil disobedience to his growing idiocy and obvious disrespect for common decency.

Following was the last straw for me…

The New York Times – President Trump assailed the television host Mika Brzezinski on Thursday in unusually personal and vulgar terms, the latest of a string of escalating attacks by the president on the national news media.

Shortly before 9 a.m., as Ms. Brzezinski’s MSNBC show “Morning Joe” was ending, Mr. Trump used Twitter to taunt Ms. Brzezinski and her co-host, Joe Scarborough, referring to them as “low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe” and saying that at one point Ms. Brzezinski was “bleeding badly from a face-lift.”

Mr. Trump has launched broadsides this week against several of the country’s major television networks and newspapers, accusing the news media of creating “fake news” and of unfairly fixating on his campaign’s links to Russian officials. At the White House, the president’s deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said on national television that Americans “deserve something better” from the country’s media.

The graphic nature of the president’s suggestion that Ms. Brzezinski had undergone plastic surgery was met with immediate criticism on social media. Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, wrote on Twitter, “Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America.” And a spokesman for NBC News, Mark Kornblau, wrote on Twitter: “Never imagined a day when I would think to myself, ‘It is beneath my dignity to respond to the President of the United States.’ ”

We must increase the resistance.  The hideous “man” who is Trump must be defeated. He is sub-human and he IS a pox on our national identity.

BCRA: Senate Trumpcare Bill Starves Medicaid to Feed the Rich

As we all knew the AHCA, aka BCRA, hurts all but the rich. This is of course the modus operandi of conservatives and the GOP. Trump as the titular leader of these groups bear ultimate responsibility. Given his campaign promises of no cuts in Medicaid, Medicare, and everyone would be insured he ought to be using the bully pulpit to gain support for his campaign promises. Unless; he never meant to keep his promises in the first place.

Costs more! Covers less! After the release of the CBO report on the the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), the slogans wrote themselves. For the Democrats.

The headlines blared that 22 million would lose their healthcare by 2027 (15 million in the next year). After the CBO report exploded like a cluster bomb, Republican senators of nearly every stripe tried to find an escape route through the Trumpcare thicket they themselves had sown.

It’s no wonder then that Mitch McConnell bit the bullet and postponed consideration of the bill until after the week long Fourth of July recess. Hell, six senators on both the right and center opposed even putting the bill up for debate. But there was a reason why the Machiavellian majority leader kept the BCRA under wraps until the last minute and planned to put the bill up for a vote without public hearings, testimony, or full deliberation, in a mad dash to pass Trumpcare before GOP senators could get an earful from their constituents on the holiday break.

Yet the secrecy backfired, as senators rebelled enmass.

It’s not going to get any easier, as McConnell has privately warned until now. Will the CBO report lead GOP senators to the slaughter, Republican politicians fret?

According to Republican former CBO director Doug Holtz-Eakin, they’re…
…going to get beaten on the head with the CBO report like it’s a club.

New York Post Joins Forces With Trump and the Fake News Meme…

In the sixth month of Donald Trump’s presidency, we are witnessing an unprecedented meltdown of much of the media. Standards have been tossed overboard in a frenzy to bring down the president.

Trump, like all presidents, deserves coverage that is skeptical and tough, but also fair. That’s not what he’s getting.

To the above all a reasonable fair-minded person can say in response is, Ah, poor WATB. Apparently the author of this extremely biased pro Trump article is fine with his lies, half-truths, and stinky BS his  White House has shoveled on the people of this once great nation.

Trump deserves every damned bit of scrutiny he has received by the legitimate press. By the use of the term legitimate we definitely do not include Breitbart, INFOWARS,  World Net Daily, Newsmax, or FOX News and Sean Hannity. There are many others but you get the idea.

Donald J. Trump has made it a hallmark of his presidency to scream FAKE  NEWS every time the legitimate news media calls him out on his many misstatement or outright lies. In so doing, and with the support of his adoring albeit ill-informed fans, he is regularly calling the legitimate news media credibility into question. A calculated strategy to delegitimize the very institution that is so critical to democracy.

Thomas Jefferson on the press…

The people are the only censors of their governors: and even their errors will tend to keep these to the true principles of their institution. To punish these errors too severely would be to suppress the only safeguard of the public liberty. The way to prevent these irregular interpositions of the people is to give them full information of their affairs thro’ the channel of the public papers, & to contrive that those papers should penetrate the whole mass of the people. The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers & be capable of reading them.

We leave it to you all to decide what Thomas Jefferson’s opinion of the BLOTUS might be were he here today.
