We Republicans Are Friends Of Black Folks

Some Republicans want Americans to understand their party is not only the conservative party, but at the same time, it is the  party that champions  rights for blacks and Hispanics. Just check the vote total. The overwhelming numbers of black and Hispanic Americans voted for the party that represented their views and needs. According to Carl HIgbe, “we are the Republican party. We are the party that freed the slave. We are the party of Martin Luther King.” Sounds OK to me. Everyone knows that Martin Luther King voted for Republicans, everyone knows that Republicans for years have been the party that cares for black and Hispanics.

Actually, there Is something correct in this statement. Lincoln DID end slavery. Theodore Roosevelt DID end segregation in the federal government. Dwight Eisenhower did support the Brown vs Board of Education Supreme Court decision. BUT, things changed. New Republicans assumed power. And, they did NOT give a damn about blacks, about Hispanics, they decided to get the votes of right wing white conservatives. Then was then, now is now, and Donald Trump does not give a damn about Hispanics or black folks, except they can work as maids or kitchen staff in his hotels.

Our Next Attorney General

Senator Jeff Sessions twenty years ago appeared before the US Senate Judiciary committee in order to secure its approval to become a federal judge. J.Gerald Herbert, a civil rights attorney was  told in secret by Senator Jeremiah Denton that he was to testify that Sessions was a fantastic nominee and never to make any derogatory comments. However, Herbert told the Committee that had once told him the NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union were “un-American because they they wanted to shove civil rights down the throats of people trying to solve problems on their own.” Oh, he also said anyone supporting civil rights was “a disgrace to his race.” And, the ‘race’ was none other than the white race.

So, fifty years after the murder of Martin Luther King we will have an Attorney General who has the support of the Ku Klux Klan and just about every white supremacist group in America. What was that about -time standing  still in the year 1952 when blacks knew their place, and stepped into the gutter when a white person walked on the sidewalk. Ah, the Good Old Days when being WHITE meant something!

Donald Trump On Democracy

Donald Trump summoned leading executives of the media to a private session with the new LEADER of our nation. ‘Look, you people, I am now the Leader of this nation. As the Leader of the American people, I expect respect, yes, respect for someone who is not only the Leader, but the wisest, the most intelligent person in this nation, as well as the world. So, from now on, you people report what I say, and that means, no interpretation of what I say. Who ever gave you  people the idea the media had a right to oppose the Leader? The entire concept of a ‘free press’ simply means you guys are free to report what I say, I will NOT charge any reporter for informing the people what I say. You are all free to state the truth of what I say.

Now, some people claim that certain white groups are not exactly kosher. I mean, they support me, and sometimes, express some words that get misinterpreted.OK, so they say Jews are clever with money,  big deal, they are, just ask my son-in-law, the Jew boy who married Ivanka, very clever, very good with the dollar bill. I love all people, those of the right,  those of the left, as long as we  all agree the President should not be insulted. Why be president if anyone can disagree when you speak the truth. Isn’t that in the Constitution? To be honest, one of these days I will get around to reading the thing, tweets I can read, but long documents that go on and on for pages, well…… Anyway, get the hell out of here and get your media people to begin respecting me, to honoring what I say, and to ALWAYS agree, that I am the LEADER who is never wrong!!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I hear that Putin has a bid in for the White House, if the offer is good,  Donald will sell it to make America -Great Again!

Trump’s grandson goes to school, so I guess he will be the next Secretary of Education, after all, who has better qualifications?

Is there a position open for the GREATEST SHOUTER? Giuliani gets it hands down.

ISIS is happy now that their best recruiter is president of the United States.

Pray that Donald does not get insulted by a nation with an atomic bomb, just pray!

We now inhabit the Divided States of America.

I gather Canada can not handle requests for asylum.

Mike Pence Insulted

Mike Pence and family went to the theater to see the play, ‘Hamilton.’ Tickets are very, very difficult to obtain and most Americans have to wait a year or so to finally see the play. At the conclusion of the play, cast members came out on stage and one read a statement directed at the vice president elect. The statement urged Pence in his new role to “work on behalf of all of us”and seek to end anger and hate in America. Well, to Donald Trump, those were words of anger and hate, and he had to respond: “I hear a highly overrated show demanded an apology from Mike Pence  for their terrible behavior.”

Actually, cast members simply wanted the Trump administration to grasp that others feel “we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.” They reflect fears and anxieties from Hispanics, from Muslims, from blacks that the new Trump era heralds a new world in which hatred has official sanction.

Great Times For Wall Street

The stock market is at record highs, wonder why? Businessmen and women  are besides themselves with joy and happiness. Wonder why? President elect Donald Trump has announced that he will be cutting regulations and creating millions of new jobs for workers. Heck, he even  promised “millions of new coal miner jobs” an amazing accomplishment since at present there are only 85,000 coal miner jobs.  There are 900,000  steel workers, and steel mills are operating at full capacity, so where are the “million of jobs?”

Donald promised to end regulations. We have government regulations to protect the safety of woking people, to ensure products are safe, to ensure that people are not cheated by loan companies, and the endless regulations necessary in modern life. These are glory days  for the wealthy. Trump’s tax plan gives 51% of money not going to the government to the wealthy, while the rest of Americans get about $500. His end of inheritance taxes gives the Trump family about an extra THREE BILLION DOLLARS UPON HIS DEATH. Oh, 98% of Americans do not pay a “death tax” since they lack millions of dollars when they die.

Lying Media Says –Trump!

Donald Trump is angry, Donald Trump is furious, he intends to make this country great again, and it begins by making the press print the truth, rather than attack the PRESIDENT ELECT! When did the press ever attack a president elect? Never, until Donald Trump won the election. He met with media folk and gave them a  lecture about how the media has to begin  reporting the truth. In  a room filled with media executives, Trump gazed into the face of Jeff Zucker and said, “Everyone at CNN is a liar, you should be ashamed of your self>

Let me get this clear. During the past election, CNN hired Trump operatives like Kellyanne Conway and Cory Lewandowski to report on the election. Naturally, they presented a 100% favorable account of Donald Trump. Were they lying when they praised him and his ideas? If “everyone at CNN” is a liar that must include the Trump supporters who only praised him.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Some presidents read cables from overseas, Donald Trump reads tweets from just about anyone.

We know that Donald Trump is very, very, interested in Broadway plays.

Queer, seven extra points missed this Sunday, another Trump result?

Want to meet with Donald Trump, just send him a nasty tweet.

Melania Trump, first First Lady who speaks with foreign accent.

I wonder if American Catholics  pay any attention to their Pope and what he says?

I have never seen so many Americans frightened due to fear of going to jail.

 

 

John McCain, The American

Once upon  a time in America it was the norm for members of Congress to have served in their country’s armed forces. Every president from Harry Truman to George H.W. Bush had been a member of their nation’s armed forces. Many like John McCain had been in combat. McCain’s grandfather was an Admiral in WWI, his father was an Admiral in WWII and Vietnam. Senator McCain was shot down in combat in the Vietnam war and endured  years of torture. He was also raised, as were all who served,to respect the Code of Military Justice which includes American agreement to abide by the Geneva Conventions. I assume draft dodger Donald Trump has NO idea as to what is legal or illegal for those who serve the country.

Senator McCain made clear that “I don’t give a damn what the president of the United States wants to do or anybody else wants to do.We will not waterboard. We will not do it.”And, he added: “What does it say about America?” If waterboarding is done under the presidency of Donald Trump it says the American military has violated its OWN LAWS OF ENGAGEMENT!

Pope Francis Wants Equal Treatment

Once upon a time Catholics listened intently to the views, the ideas, of their priests, and, particularly to what their Pope said about daily life. Pope Francis definitely is not anyone who Donald Trump would pay attention to his words of wisdom. The Pope told his flock, the Pope told the world: “We see, for example, how quickly those among us wish the status of a stranger, an immigrant, or a refugee, becomes a threat, or take the status of an enemy. An enemy  because they come from a distant country a have different customs. An enemy  because of the color of their skin, their language or their social class. The enemy  because they think differently or even have a  different faith.”

No other comment but: AMEN and THANK YOU FOR BEING A POPE!
