SOme FACTS that the rightwingnuts don't or won't understand

Russia is our enemy. Biggest military, other than US in the world. Putin/Russia are aggressors.
Russia DEFINITELY supported the Orange Clown over Hillary.
Do you nut jobs ever ask yourself WHY?
You think just maybe they want(ed) to WEAKEN our country? What better way than to help put an inexperienced, vain, arrogant Bozo in charge of America?
Brilliant, and SO simple.
Just weaponize information, slowly leak it and get clueless sheep to think BENGHAZI!, OMG!, is the worst thing EVER. Except maybe having a 'private server'. OMG! That's terrible!
Starting a war, based on OBVIOUS lies, having a vain, arrogant pathologcal LIAR as prez? NO PROBLEM.
Using the same server set up by the US Secret Service for the president, that was NEVER hacked? OMG! Lock her up!
Just a small peak into the dark recesses of the rightwingnut brain, located deep inside a rightwingnut ass. Scary, right?

In a perfect example of 'why I can't stand 'em'

the jerks(R) are following the Orange Clown and killing Planned Parenthood, while pulling the US out of the world wide Paris Accord on dealing with Climate Change. They(R) DO have a plan though... Let God fix it.
Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) told a constituent last week
that God can solve the problem of climate change if the
global phenomenon truly exists.  The 66-year-old Republican, who is a climate change 
skeptic, made the remark at a town hall in Coldwater,
Michigan, on Friday.
And file this one under 'No Shit'

Alex Jones’ Former 
Wife: ‘He’s A Really Unhappy, Disturbed  Person’ Kelly Jones says her ex-husband was “very cruel” to  her “every day of our marriage.”

I don't often 'feel my age', BUT,

today the legs are a little sore, after 18 holes to start the day, then dinner and drinks with the kids before we hiking into Red Rocks for a great show from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, opened by Joe Walsh, who hasn't lost a lick.
Didn't reach for my long sleeve shirt til it started to cool off, then found person behind me had spilled what must have been a full, large beer on the shirt under my seat, and then the rain came, which can be expected 'On the Rocks'. Got kinda damp and chilled, but still a great evening. I had just forgotten what a hike (uphill) it is from parking to the seats, BUT, well worth it for the BEST (literally, voted by touring musicians) concert venue in the world.
Thanks, Ted and Kari, for the tix, (and for driving) and to Nate and Laura for joining us on an unforgettable evening. Hard to beat 'Rocky Mountain Way' by Joe Walsh, under the stars, on the The Rocks, with your kids who are also 'best friends'.

Just like they(R) are YUUUGE liars when they claim to be

the 'fiscally responsible' party (in any way you want to measure), the jerks(R) are REALLY liars when they claim to 'keep us safe'. How deep in your ass does your have have to be, to believe the crap they spout? And don't forget Reagan's illegal war, financed by selling drugs in the inner city when looking at Repub bullshit.

Can you imagine the SCREAMS form the rightrwingnuts

If they caught the Dems setting up secret, untraceable communications with America's #1 enemy?
Gen. John Kelly, Donald Trump’s Homeland Security chief, said, “I don’t see any big issue” about Jared Kushner meeting with the Russians to establish a back channel of communications. Really? It’s normal to have a totally unqualified private citizen, who also happens to be the son-in-law of the president, surreptitiously meet with the Russians to suggest setting up a secret communications network using the Russian embassy and their encrypted communications system? Oh, did I mention that Kushner forgot to include this meeting on his security clearance forms? Just a tiny mistake! How could anyone forget a face-to-face meeting with the Russian ambassador to set up a secure communications line?

Different shades of sickening


When listening to the Orange Clown

I often ask myself, is that justhit, or does it rise to a lie, or is it just self promotion, to feed his vain, arrogant oaversized ego? Many times it's 'all of the above' within one statement or paragraph. Seems I'm not the only one. Speaking of crap dripping from Trump's vile mouth....

Even if they are not meant to persuade, they are typically intended to distract people from reality. That is, his untruths about the House’s health care bill aren’t merely intended to distinguish his supporters from his opponents. They are also intended to obscure the reality that the bill would deprive millions of people of health insurance.His untruths about his tax planimmigrants, voter fraudcrime and manyothersubjects serve a similar purpose. They attempt to create enough confusion about basic facts that Trump’s preferred policies, and his kleptocratic approach to government, can start to sound sensible.

Sensible to some maybe, if you've been fed, and believe FOXC…

FINALLY, I agree with the Orange Clown

The Liar in Chief Tweeted, 'Russia musts be laughing at us'. Yup, I'm sure they are, after they installed the dufus they wanted, to lead their main enemy in the world.
I'm sure they're laughing their asses off as they drink their vodka toasts....

On a good streak, this beautiful spring

Yesterday was 'brew day' with Nate and family in the mountains, as we brewed 10 gals of Belgian 'Dubel. Now, golf at Legacy Ridge followed by Tom Petty at Red Rocks.
Life is good, and getting better....

The Orange Clown has done some REALLY stupid crap, BUT,

dissing US intel, including the CIA, FBI and NSA shows what an idiot he truly is.

As I watch the Memorial Day ceremonies

I LOVE the true veterans. BUT, I hate the Repub jerks that sent our young men, and my friends to die inViet Nam and Iraq.
There's a YUUGE difference between fighting for our freedom and fighting for the Repub War Machine that sent patriots to be cannon fodder for Repub bullshit, where the 'defense' contractors made YUUUGE amounts of money, for NOTHING other than profit.
Please explain to me what was GOOD about Viet Nam and Iraq?
Total Repub bullshit that drove a wedge betgween patriots and politics, and showed profit vs suffering is a Repub constant. Some things never change....
Like I say, I LOVE the true patriots that fought for our country in WWII.
BUT, the assholes that sent our young men to die and be wounded in Viet Nam and Iraq should burn in hell, AS IF there were such a 'Christian' place....

To all you youngsters out there

on this Memorial Day weekend.
Being young is great, OBVIOUSLY, but can you imagine every day being like a 3 day weekend? That's what retirement is like, IF, you make the right choices.
Bottom line, don't believe Repub bullshit, and U2 can retire comfortably.
Think independently, and don't rely on 'The Rapture' for retirement. (duh)
RU kidding? It ain't happened in the last few hundred generations, and it ain't gonna happen for you, no matter what the Thumpers say.
Make sound, rational, logical decisions. Bottom line, trust your brain, logic and rationality. That ALWAYS works, no matter what the Noah's Ark people say.
Please, show me where I'm wrong.
Cuz I can SURELY show you where the Thumpers are SO wrong. Wanna bet?
You  can trust science/reality, OR are you a braindead/brainwashed sheep/Pub?
 Nothing new here....
Bet your life?

While the larger failures of Trump's trip were widely recognized,

such as failing to join the other six nations of the G7 on Climate Change solutions, providing the kill 9-11 Killers with US weapons, 'to be assembled there' and failing to affirm NATO's goals of 'keeping each other's back', some of his other gaffes were also recognized. Meanwhile, the Liar in Chief was declaring his trip a 'Home Run' during his self-congratulatory victory lap at the US military base, with a captive audience in Italy, ALL the other leaders were holding press conferences. Mostly bitching about the Orange Clown.
The smaller moments of the president’s trip were noted as well, from first lady Melania Trump’s apparent reluctance to hold her husband’s hand to his shoving aside of Montenegro’s prime minister to get to the front of a pack of leaders at a NATO photo opportunity. At the G-7, it was Trump’s interactions with other leaders that commanded attention. The six other heads of state took a short walk from one event to the next, chatting…

As we look at Jared Kushner

and his back-channel (read secret, non detectable) Russia hook up, just remember a couple of things.
This was BEFORE the Liar in Chief was even president.
AND, this 'boy genius', only made it to Harvard cuz his rich daddy bought his way in. He is described as 'average' at best by former classmates/teachers.
His ONLY claim to fame is that he is 'trusted' by the Orange Clown because of their common background. They were both born to rich, ruthless  real estate tycoons, who walked all over the 'little guys' on their way to the top.
THIS, is the boy wonder who is tasked with carrying out the Orange Clown's agenda, and the sheep ALL FOR IT.
Think about it, as we see how FAR our country has fallen, as we eye the abyss below.
Thanks again, FOXNews and Bible Belt.

Can you imagine, the beginnings of FOXLies,

as Roger Ailes, Chief Political Strategist of the Repub Party is hitting up Rupert Murdoch, who'll do ANYTHING if it's profitable, for $120 mil. 'First', says Roger, 'we have to convince the rubes that the main-stream media, ALL OF IT, incl foreign, like Reuters and the BBC, are LIARS, and only WE, Republican propagandists, tell the TRUTH!
Rupert must have laughed out loud, saying, 'Nobody, not even the Bible Belt Bozos, are THAT gullible, although I think it might fly in Indiana'.
Then Roger came back with the CLINCHER.
'We're gonna call it, 'Fair and Balanced', and they both fell on the floor, laughing their asses off.
as the dynasty was born.
Meanwhile, on a bus not far away, Donald Trump was explaining to Billy Bush, how to score with women, not knowing there was a live mic, as he said, 'You just grab 'em by the pussy', which proved No Problem with FOX created sheep, PROVING the wisdom of Roger Ailes and the gullibilty of th…

Don't get me wrong. I can understand

being Conservative in certain areas. In most written surveys/questionaires, I'm only about 60% Liberal, preferring the 'conservative' point of view about 40% of the time.
BUT, for sometime to 'take the leap' from Conservative to believing FOXNews is absurd.
It would be like me, being proud of my German/Swedish heritage, to take the 'leap' of joining Aryan Nation, White Supremicist 'Thug Gangs'. One doesn't justify the other. BUT, that's exactly what the sheep have done.---- I'm Conservative, therefore I'm gonna swallow the crap from FOXNews, where the Ailes organization, with Rupert Murdoch's money, created a glitzy, high tech news organization and surrounded it with Repub propaganda, where the 'news' slides seamlessly into 'Opinion disguised as facts'. and once the sheep slip over to the Dark Side, then "Game Over'.
Again, a tip of the hat to Mr Ailes, for the best political money EVER SPENT. Without hi…

The 'Fair and Balanced' (funniest name EVER) propaganda site

is bitchin' cuz the courts threw out a lawsuit blaming Hillary for the deaths at BENGHAZI!
It would have been 'unpresidented', (the Liar in Chief's words) for such a suit, but that didn't Bullshit Mountain from pushing the merits of such a claim.
"The untimely death of plaintiffs' sons is tragic, and the Court does not mean to minimize the unspeakable loss that plaintiffs have suffered in any way," U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington wrote in a 29-page opinion. The suit also alleged Clinton’s use of a private email server caused the death of their sons (totally unsubstantiated, but pushed by FOX and the Pubs, who are one and the same), Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, because it exposed terrorists to sensitive information. FOXCrap had more 'insight' on Hillary's server, that was 'created by the US Secret Service' and never hacked. calling it a Homebrew server, in their continuing efforts to label DEMS BAD---PUBS GOOD, a…

Speaking out of both sides of his vile mouth

the Liar in Chief condemns the 'leakers' who 'blew the whistle' on Jared's secret connections to the Russians, BEFORE Trump was even the candidate, (and Jared admits it) and then blasts the 'leaked' news as FAKE!
And his mindless minions do the Debbie from Dallas act and swallow it.
Nothing new here, but pick one side or the other, jackass....

Although Jared Kushner and others involved

don't deny it, and in fact support the idea of his back-channel link to Russia, set up to avoid detection by US intel, the Liar in CHief handled the expose' like he does EVERYTHING that he doesn't like being exposed.
'Fake news' Tweets the Orange Clown. Made up stories by the fake media, says The Donald. as he always does when another of his nefarious schemes are unearthed. Why not? The clueless sheep parrot his baseless claims and it keeps him from addressing the real issues.
He sweeps it all into the same stinking pile, which HE labels 'fake' and his mindless minions swallow it like Debbie from Dallas.
Sorta like when 17 US intel agencies claim Russia influenced the latest election. The Clown in Charge claims 'fake', FOX-PARP backs him up and the sheep don't give a shit.
Welcome to Trump World, where TRUTH is trumped by Trump.

I knew he had a BUNCH of bankruptcies,

but I wasn't sure HOW many, cuz you hear from 4 to 6. Well, it is at LEAST six, plus a bunch of failed businesses, according to Snopes, who is MUCH more believable than the Liar in Chief. Remember, this is the clown that the FOXNews swallowing sheep think should run our country, cuz they believe the lies.

Other Trump Business FailuresAs well as his six bankruptcies, Donald Trump has undertaken a number of business projects that ultimately failed without resulting in bankrupcties, including: Trump Steaks
GoTrump (online travel site)
Trump Airlines
Trump Vodka
Trump Mortgage
Trump: The Game
Trump Magazine
Trump University
Trump Ice (bottled water)
The New Jersey Generals (pro football team)
Tour de Trump (bicycle race)
Trump Network (nutritional supplements)
Trumped! (syndicated radio spot) Wow, sure seems like presidential material to me, say the clueless sheep...

The Liar in Chief calls his tour, a 'Home Run'

Yeah right, like someone born on third and thinks he hit a triple. the son of Fred Drumpf.
He is the only G7 member not to sign on to the Paris Accord, which calls for all nations to try and slow down planet warming. He was also the ONLY leader not to have a press conference when it was over, instead he held a 'greatest hits' monologue, in front of a captive audience at a military base, while his son in law is being investigated for setting up back-channel, secret communications with the Commies, BEFORE the Clown was even elected. I can see what The Donald saw in him. They were both handed a YUUUGE real estate empire by their daddies, and built on it by being ruthless, gouging money from the less fortunate.
At least Jared didn't have a BUNCH of bankruptcies, like the Liar in Chief, who left the 'little people' holding the bag, as he took the money and ran. VERY presidential, if you are a clueless sheep.

Other leaders from the G7 called contact with the clown, '…

I'm totally serious here, as I wonder,

Did the average Trump voter actually BELIEVE his obvious bullshit, OR, did they know he was/is full of crap and voted for him anyway?
Inquiring minds want to know..
AND,I'm not sure which is worse. Being that naive/gullible/stupid as to believe him, or so irresponsible to KNOW he's full o' shit and vote for him as prez of the United States, anyway.
WOW, either way, it's really hard to understand....

A YUUUGE number of naive, ignorant, gullible voters

swallowed the lies from the Orange Clown, cuz he told them what they wanted to hear, and this put him 'over the top' in Rust Belt states where he promised to bring back coal, although anyone with a brain, (FOXSheep obviously excluded), can see that coal, as a YUUUGE polluter, that is WAY more expensive than natuaral gas, is fuel of the past not the future. BUT, the average Trump voter isn't known for their intelligence, SO, they swallowed it, along with myriad other lies he told to be elected.
'We'll have better, cheaper Health Care'.
 'Tax Cuts for EVERYONE!',
'I'll build a Big Beautiful Wall and Mexico will PAY for it'. and SO MANY other lies..

Gary Cohn, director of the White House National Economic
Council, told reporters aboard Air Force One Thursday night
that coal “doesn’t make sense anymore,” as he talked up
other energy sources. “Coal doesn’t even make that much sense anymore as a
feedstock,” he said, CNN Money reported. Feedstock

File it under, Duh...

A former speechwriter for George W. Bush and current
Washington Post columnist is criticizing conservative 
media figures for promoting a conspiracy theory about
the death of Seth Rich, the Democratic National
Committee staffer who was shot and killed last summer.  Michael Gerson, who served as Bush’s top speechwriter
from 2001 through 2006, argues in a column published
by the Post on Thursday that the “failure of decency” by
popular right-wing personalities like Sean Hannity and
Rush Limbaugh indicates deeper problems within the
conservative movement.  “This is a concrete example of the mainstreaming of
destructive craziness,” Gerson writes. The conservative
mind has become diseased'. Remember, this is a Repub writing this...

Talk about tone deaf and out of touch...

While Trump's budget slashes funds for school lunches, Meals on Wheels and many other 'safety net' programs for the needy, Melania sported a $51 THOUSAND dollar jacket.
Can you imagine the self-righteous screams of outrage(R) if Michelle Obama had done anything CLOSE to that?

GIOVANNI ISOLINO | AFP | Getty Images Melania Trump's first outing in the Sicilian sunshine was in a colorful floral applique jacket by Dolce & Gabbana that sells for $51,000, or several thousand dollars above the median U.S. income in 2015.

Can you remember a year ago

when the Pubs were screaming about Obama's golf and family vacations that cost the US taxpayer approx $12 mil a year?
Well, the jerks(R) are surprisingly quiet about the $153 mil, SO FAR, that's been spent on Trump family security and The Donald's golf vacations.
There's a reason HYPOCRTES R US is an alternative name for the Pub Party.
Totally out of touch, in their head up their ass world...

WOW! This is from a FOX poll,

where they are constantly programmed to to swallow Repub lies. Just imagine the numbers from 'NON propagandized' voters....

American voters disagree with President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, think the dismissal was for self-serving reasons, and approve of a special counsel being appointed to investigate Russian government efforts to influence the election and the Trump campaign.  In addition, a majority opposes the Republican plan to replace Obamacare.  That’s according to a new Fox News Poll of registered voters nationwide. The last month took a toll on the president’s ratings, which are down another 5%. WOW, even the mindless minions are starting to understand what the rest of us have known ever since the Bozo first drove the Repub clown car. but then I see crap like this and laugh my ass off.

VALUES Trumping your life: How to be a better, stronger person by being more like the president By Dr. Keith AblowPublished May 27, 2017
Fox News

As the totally unqualified son-in-law of the Liar in Chief

gets more and more responsibilities, his apologists continue to claim that, after all he is a Harvard grad... Yeah, BUT, interviewers have spoken with his classmates and teachers and found that his grades and SAT scores were 'Nowhere Close' to being Harvard material, SOOO, his daddy made a
$2 1/2 MILLION dollar gift to Harvard and SURPRISE!, little Jared was accepted.
Yup, that's the NUMBER ONE player in the Orange Clown's administration, charged with everything from 'shaking up Washington' to Mid East Peace.
It just keeps getting scarier, as we now know he tried to set up back-alley communications with the Commies, when the Russians were pushing for The Donald to defeat Hillary.
Do the Pubs care? OF COURSE NOT! He has an (R) after his name,and nothing else matters.....

As for daddy buying his kid's way into a Big Time college? It's done all the time, but that doesn't make it right.

I know that they(R) are outrageous HYPOCRITES, but

this one is 'off the chart', as most Pubs have 'No Problem' with the Trumpies trying to set up secret communication channels with the Russians.
Can you imagine the outrage and uproar if the Pubs had discovered a Dem (Hillary's campaign) doing the same thing?
The jerks who had dozens of meetings cuz HRC's 'private server' MIGHT be hacked now see their boys trying to set up a secret back alley way to communicate directly with our sworn enemy and say, 'No big deal'. What will it take to pry their heads out of their asses?

The Washington Post has learned that Kushner reportedly 
discussed setting up a backchannel between the Trump 
transition team and the Kremlin during his meeting in
December with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak. According to intelligence officials, during a meeting at
Trump Tower that included Michael Flynn, Kushner
suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities for a
secret and secure channel with the Kremlin that
would shield di…

Dave's buddy, Albert

has a good reply to 'Impeach Trump'.

Pence scares me more than Trump.  Trump has proven to be a buffoon who will destroy himself. Pence represents the epitome of closed minded, bigoted, modern Christian fundamentalism mixed with enough political smarts and coat tails to do real, lasting damage to our democracy. 

Well said, Albert

Contrary to popular opinion,

Every Repub isn't a total idiot. Believe it or not, there ARE some who have a brain, and actually use it. Consider Charles Krauthammer, George Will and the two former Repub presidents. They hate the Liar in Chief.
Now we can add John Boehner to that group.
Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) isn’t
impressed with President Donald Trump. Speaking at an energy conference in Houston on
Wednesday, Boehner did praise Trump on foreign
affairs and said he had stepped up the fight against
the Islamic State militant group. But he generally
gave a grim assessment of the president’s first few
months in office, according to energy publication Rigzone.  “Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a 
complete disaster,” Boehner said.

Sometimes when I channel surf, I occasionally catch FOXNews

BUT, if Sean Hannity is on, I immediately change, cuz I can't stand the smug, repulsive waste of human flesh, who just 'makes it up' as he goes along. And the sheep swallow his crap. Seems I'm not alone.

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough
made it clear he doesn't like speaking negatively
about the competition on Friday — that was right
before he bashed Fox News' Sean Hannity. "We don't talk about other news networks. We don't
talk about our competitors because, you know, it's
just kind of gross. And we're supposed to be talking
about things that are bigger than that," Scarborough said. He then went on to explain why Hannity's coverage of
Seth Rich's murder forced him to change his ways. "Now we are reduced to fake news and Sean Hannity
ripping the hearts out of parents for their son, their
young, gifted son who was shot in the back and trying
to twist that into something that somehow helps Donald 

Like a Jr High bully,

shoving his way to the front of the lunch line, the Liar in Chief pushed a NATO leader out of the way,

so he could be in the front row. I'd have decked the SOB, but the guy was a gentleman.
Trump then went on to berate the other NATO members before calling our allies, the Germans,
'Bad, very bad', for selling too many cars in the US.
Like your Beamer or Benz?
The Bully in Chief doesn't, as he tries to start a world-wide trade war.
What kind of brain dead imbecile supports the clown? Oh yeah, the uninformed FOXSheep.
 Never mind....

Add this to the YUUUGE list of 'stuff I didn't know

Raw Oysters Are Alive Until You Eat Them, In Case You Didn’t Know The question is: when exactly do they die?
You know that oyster on ice that you’re getting ready to
squirt with fresh lemon
to slurp back? We think you should know that those slimy 
guys are still alive. This should be common knowledge, but it’s surprisingly not.

Betsy DeVos, the Bozo Trump picked

to head the Dept of Education, is in the decided minority, as she tries to get 'Creationism' taught in public schools. Before the advent of science and education, a majority of people believed these myths. Not anymore.
A recent Gallup poll regarding American views on
creation and evolution returned some unprecedented
results. The acceptance of Creationism, the belief that God
made humans as they are today, has hit its lowest
point since Gallup began asking the question 35
years ago.
Only 38 percent of the respondents chose it to describe
their understanding of how we all ended up here. Let me guess where these 38% are clustered.
Can you say Southern Bible Belt, Pub base and
center of poverty and the uneducated in the US?
