Al Franken Delivers Speech Worthy Of Capra, Shaming Fellow Shameless Democrats

America Take Note: On the same day America’s Democratic Leadership forced Sen. Al Franken to resign without regard to reason or due process, they also embraced and through their entire support behind the Criminal Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey whose federal corruption trial just ended in a hung jury.

This will be missed by most news outlets.

*******************************************************

Sen. Al Franken stood at the podium of the senate chamber today and delivered the most significant political speech of 2017.

The crime is that Franken’s history-making speech was forced upon him by the McCarthyist Democratic Party Leadership without any regard for America or Americans.

Franken’s speech spelled out the values of leadership that have been totally absent from any political party existent in this country or any other in recent memory.

Franken spelled out what exactly our elected officials are supposed to do: Serve their people and their country.

Franken referred again and again to deceased Sen. Paul Wellstone of Minnesota to underscore the values he held dear and that have been abandoned now entirely by the Democratic dinosaurs who run the party as cynically as Donald Trump runs rampant over the rule of law.

********************************

America is at a Crossroad now. Citizens look for leadership in times of crisis.

At this point in time, the Schumer’s, the Pelosi’s, the Warren’s are running like junkyard dogs grabbing hold of their little scraps of power while America careens toward collapse thanks to the corruption of Donald Trump.

And those Democratic Leaders just threw Al Franken under the bus on their own trips to hell.

General John Kelly Presser: “Heil, John Kelly!”

In what must be the most outrageous moment in Donald Trump’s presidency – yes, what does that say? – Chief of Staff General John Kelly proved himself to be a very dangerous, self-absorbed popinjay who is obviously swollen with his own sense of self-importance.

This is very scary for the United States of America.

Ever since Kelly was appointed chief of staff over a chaotic Trump White House he has been touted by all observers across the political spectrum as the Man In Charge, the Man Keeping America Safe From Trump.

Now it is clear: Kelly has become a megalomaniac. An unelected megalomaniac who has control of the White House.

Kelly condemned all politicians and congress.

Kelly made heroes of ALL members of the military and in the same breath dismissed all citizens who have NOT served in the military as lesser people!

We have now reached a point in US history where the leader of the country believes citizens are of a lower class than those in the military.

In a very scary moment, General Kelly refused to allow ANYONE to ask questions of him unless they were “Gold Star” family members or knew “Gold Star” family members!

(By the way, what is this military charade term “Gold Star Family?” Someone who had spouse/son/daughter die while in combat. Hmmm. Anyone in the military want to bring up this fact:

More soldiers were killed last year while they were undergoing TRAINING under the US military’s supervision than were killed in combat. What do you call THOSE family members? FORGOTTEN!)

So the de facto leader of the Free World refused to have anything to do with people unless they had some connection to the military.

Leaving the press conference Kelly told all assembled they could stare at his back and think about all the brave military souls saving the world.

All we read about – for those who keep track of these things – are Navy ships crashing and killing their own sailors, Admirals being dismissed, jets and helicopters crashing constantly killing their pilots and leaving their foreign host countries questioning why they even keep US troops on their soil, not to mention hundreds and hundreds of non-combat civilians being killed by the US military as “collateral damage” and alienating host nations who they are supposed to be “protecting.”

And Kelly has the gall to stand in front of America and hold up the US military as the epitome of what the US represents?

My gawd. Eisenhower is rolling in his grave.

Cuba. Venezuela. Putin’s Russia. China.

The United States has entered the Age of the Totalitarian Leader.

And you thought Trump was bad…

Twitter Silences Rose McGowan; Lets Trump Trample Over Truth

The faceless corporate behemoth Twitter suddenly shut down the account of actor Rose McGowan.

McGowan has been very Twitter-vocal recently in the whole Harvey Weinstein abuse case.

It is clear that the powerful people involved in silencing the victims of Weinstein and others are still wielding their brickbats. Weinstein – good friends with Hilary Clinton and whose company Malia Obama spent an internship at last year – is on record threatening his victims with retaliation. In one case he was quoted as screaming “I’m the meanest mutherf*cking enemy you will ever have in this world.”

************************

Yes, Fox News and those on the Right are painting this as “the sexist liberals are getting theirs.”

But last night listening to Fox’s “The Five” pontificating and condemning “liberals” for sexual abuse – with Jesse Watters(!) as moderator – was like being in Hell and listening to the Devil tsk tsk his minions for their sinful transgressions.

*************************

As for the lawless, faceless, rudderless, profitless Twitter corp., their actions – or lack of action – defy all the world’s logic.

Russian propaganda lies meant to undermine the integrity of the United States and paid for by the Russian intelligence services?

That’s A-Ok with Twitter!

Rose McGowan uncovering the Truth behind Hollywood’s abuse?

“Shut the woman down!” says Twitter.

*****************************

Meanwhile, Twitter let’s Donald Trump spew outright lies across the world.

And does nothing to shut him down.

Who has the power in this world? It should be clear to everyone by now: Those In Power.

And when those in power shut down the voices of those who speak Truth To Power, oh, woe betide us.

If Americans Kneel, Will Mike Pence Walk Out Of Vice-Presidency?

Mike Pence, our Most Petty Vice-President, claimed that he walked out of an NFL game Sunday between the Colts and 49ers because some dozen players took a knee during the national anthem.

http://www.mynbc5.com/article/vice-president-mike-pence-leaves-colts-game-because-of-players-who-protested/12804778

Which leads us to ask: If the man second-in-line to lead the United States of America is so easily swayed by such petty matters, then if a few hundred Americans took a knee during the national anthem could the Man-Standing-On-Principals-Of Sand Mike Pence be so outraged that he would resign from the vice-presidency?

It’s well worth a try.

***************************

The Reality:

Pence had this planned all along. His rapidly dispensed press release explaining his “outrage” and departure was written well before Sunday’s game.

He and Trump hatched this rotten egg tomfoolery to keep this “kneeling” issue on the front pages to whip up their gap-toothed, backwoods-dwelling ignorant racist base and guarantee they’d keep foaming at the mouth.

(As if they weren’t already foaming at the mouth from the rabies that inherently drove them to vote for Donald Trump.)

Worried Over Fake News? Google News Just Made It Worse

Today, 28th June 2017, the most powerful media company in the world, Google, just blew up their news feed.

They instituted a new format that makes mincemeat of any sensible way to digest the world’s latest news events.

From today onward, going to Google’s News webpage will lead readers into an oubliette of oblivion.

Want to be directed to “Highly Cited” stories from The Washington Examiner? That’s where Google will take you. No matter that The Examiner is a nether region right-wing paper-hanger.

Google wants to direct you over to The Washington Times to a “Highly Cited” story on Sarah Palin. Oh, you mean THAT Washington Times that runs in the gutter to promote the most despicable conspiracy theories Vlad Putin is pushing over our borders.

How about The Financial Times? The Japan Times? Associated Press? Mother Jones?

********************

A Fake News World. Have we have entered that realm?

Google, owned by Alphabet, the world’s second largest internet multi-national conglomerate, has no interest in the truth. It only has interest in profits.

Fox News is still the most viewed news channel in America.

America, without any leaders on the national level, is rapidly sliding toward Third World status.

 

And media corporations like Google/Alphabet are more than happy to provide the water slide.

The President Unhinged: Part II

Today US President Donald J. Trump attempted to grab attention from the chaos surrounding his administration by telling the news media he would soon make an announcement about so-called “tapes” from the Oval Office.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/president-donald-trump-deflects-questions-tapes-james-comey/story?id=47935492

Supposedly such tapes would vindicate the president in face of James Comey’s testimony yesterday.

Seconds later, Trump told the same reporters that they would be “very disappointed” in his forthcoming announcement.

Meaning that they do not exist?

The President of the United States is no longer making sense.

The President of these United States has lost control of reality.

The President of these United States of America has become unhinged.

 

Donald J. Trump: The Unhinged President

Former FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress yesterday. America didn’t learn anything we didn’t already know.

Donald J. Trump, the elected President of these United States of America, has become unhinged.

The tighter the net grows around Donald Trump, the more dangerous he gets. The tighter the net gets around Donald Trump, the more he will feel compelled to act out.

And the more Trump feels compelled to act out, the more dangerous it is for America – Domestically and internationally.

It was clear to all during the long presidential campaign that Candidate Trump was willing to outright lie to millions of his followers who would eat up his fabrications while those whose job is to keep check on the balance of powers compiled longer and longer lists of Trump’s fabrications and business malfeasance’s.

Now, as Trump’s House of Cards is tumbling down around him, now, America needs its real leaders to stand tall and do the right thing.

*****************

Most Republican members of Congress whose job it is to guard America’s position of respect not only in the world but in the eyes of its own citizens have grossly abdicated their responsibility for no other reason than to coddle that creepy, hardcore 30% Trumpian base, a base that, when push comes to shove, would prefer to see this nation burned to the ground than ever give up their “leader” Trump to, well, what the rest of the world considers reason and logic and good governance.

This supposed 30% base is the sole reason we hear ridiculous defenses and excuses of Trump’s inexcusable behavior.

Here, we would like to specifically point out Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and second in line to The President of the United States of America.

Ryan, after Comey’s blistering testimony yesterday, gave what can only be the most bizarre excuse imaginable for President Trump’s behavior: That Trump was still “learning on the job.”

Yes, Ryan excused the President for lying and obstruction and appointing cabinet members who Trump knew were under FBI investigation because he was just “learning” this job of president.

Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, since the appearance of Donald J. Trump, has done nothing but suck onto that presidential shark like a blood-sucking remora,  following in his despicable trail and feeding on his poisonous venom in some phantom vision of an America based on Hatred and Lies and Recriminations.

In the face of multiple fact-based reports from US intelligence that the Russian intelligence agency the GRU gained access to a US software company that was contracted with programming election machines in 7 different states, and in the face of Trump and his campaign members and his own son-in-law Jared Kushner attempting to set up direct intelligence communications with the Kremlin – that would be Vladimir Putin – by bypassing US intelligence, Rep. Ryan – the second in line to the president – is STILL defending that president whose entire cabinet is acting in a cohesive manner to somehow…create a defacto power-sharing agreement with Russia?

That is the Leadership of The Republican Party.
