I was shocked at Donald Trump Jr’s tone in making the case for his father. I taught that the younger Trump would have taken a more sedate tone and a better approach in making the case for his father. Instead he went down the same road as his father in hurling insult after insult at the President, the “others” and the potential democratic nominee Hilary Clinton. It is obvious that like his father he has no interest in bringing people of all stripes together. In fact I was so shocked at bellicose tone that I watched the whole speech with my mouth wide opened. In addition to the rhetoric and the moxie, I noticed that his eyes were very red and I thought that he sounded angry more than anything else. If this were my year to vote for a Republican, that tone and rhetoric coming from a member of the nominee’s family, would have turned me off.
To highlight that side of him as he touted his father, as a mentor is to say to the public that this is how he was raised and taught to think and that he was just as arrogant as the elder Trump. In addition, his rhetoric suggested that all the nastiness that his father has been portraying, along the campaign trail, is ok with him.
This leads me to ask this question. Are these the kind of people that you want in the Whitehouse, or should I say (from the looks of things) as potential airs to the impending “throne?”
Paul Ryan endorses the bigot, why is anyone surprise? We have known all along that the GOP are bigots. They want the white house so bad that they are going with someone whose mantra: “Make America Great Again is code word for make America work only for people that look like him. You know, like how it was when they were snatching people from the Ivory Coast to work for them in servitude at their big gaudy mansions. What is next for these people? Bring back aunt Jemima in the head rap, the rapes, the whippings, the indentured servants; Drop an A bomb in the Middle East; continue to give authenticity to gun ownership even as it gets into terrorist hands whose sole intention is to murder us; roll back the clock on: Roe vs. Wade; gay rights, women’s rights, civil rights. Roll back President Obama’s achievements; pander to the rich while highlighting the shortcomings of the poor. Shame on Paul Ryan for selling his soul!! When Secretary Clinton wins and she will, it will be the end of them and the intensity of their repugnance.
On Monday, November 8, 2015 President Barack Obama’s plan to protect up to 5 million people living in the United States illegally from deportation was voted down in a ruling from a New Orleans-based federal appeals court.
A ruling like this shows how far the GOP will go to try to protect their sovereignty. After Obama put forth these immigration changes, they swore they would prevent it from coming to fruition. So this is just the beginning of their attempt to roll back the process state by state. Still, this could potentially hinder their bid for the White house; for in order to win it they will need a substantial portion of Latino votes and they just showed them that they are not willing to work with them in this important capacity. Indeed, I fondly await their next move. Maybe they will try to “gerrymander” the Latino’s to get them to vote for them like they gerrymander a number of districts to try to hold a majority congress…forever? Fortunately, they can do neither of these things.
I take my hat off to Secretary Clinton for her amazing performance in spite of the RepuGNicants, who are doing nothing but take her down a partisan road to nowhere. Perhaps the Obama Administration should revise their decision not to bring Bush up on war crimes over the Iraq debacle. Furthermore, why was there no 911 special committee convened to find out why the Bush administration did not follow up on intelligence about an imminent threat to us by Al qaeda? It was because he dropped the ball that more than three thousand Americans lost their lives on our soil on September 11, 2001. Indeed, Bush dropped the ball but there was no 911 special committee to make sure he doesn’t get a second term as president or even to impeach him. Could it be that it was because the Democrats held the house majority at the time and at the time was more interested in unity for our country rather than divisiveness?
If the RepuGNicants think that this overreach and public spectacle, which they are making of themselves, over the Benghazi attacks is going to put it together for them to take back the white house in 2016, then they surely did not think things through. It is about time that they come to terms with the fact that the country is tired of them highlighting things that tend to divide, rather than unite us.
