America Seeks Therapy for Her PTSD: Post Trump Stress Disorder.

I’m hanging out on Twitter today.

Methane from the GOP ‘Swamp of Crazy’

 

To blame Donald Trump for the GOP’s brainwashed base is to excuse the The Republican National Leadership for its knowing use of fear and disinformation to win votes.

In March of 2016 the Republican National Committee released an ad that frames President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court to replace Justice Antonin Scalia as a power grab to subvert the Constitution of the United States.

The ad opens with a nod to the ‘crazy’ birther conspiracy with a reference to Obama’s Lawless Presidency.

The Republican Leadership knows the President has a  Constitutional obligation to nominate a replacement when a vacancy opens on the Court.

Congress conducts the job interview.

He (the President) shall have the Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments. Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, known as the Appointments Clause

The ad, released in March of this year presumes that the viewer is ignorant regarding the Constitution and American Democracy.

Voice-Over: President Obama wants to make his lawless presidency permanent. The vacant seat on the Supreme Court is all that stands between a liberal majority that will help Obama and the Democrats undermine the Constitution. Now President Obama is trying to deny the American people a voice in who will fill this critical seat. Tell Obama you won’t be silenced. Tell Obama too much is at stake for your voice not to be heard. Tell Obama to let the American people have a say.

The American People had their say when we twice voted to elect Barack Hussein Obama as our President.

I hope that when we have our say again this November we will say this
to the GOP:

Get out of our government and don’t come back until you learn
the rules of civil discourse and fair play.”

Hatestock, Day 1: What ‘sub-groups’ besides whites made contributions to civilization?

This is rich:

King: “I’d ask you to go back through history and figure out where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you’re talking about. Where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?”

Host Chris Hayes: “Than white people?

Obama Alienates Millions with Pro-Knowledge Remarks

I loved this headline so much I had to share it:

Obama Alienates Millions with Incendiary Pro-Knowledge Remarks

Obama Makes Vile Pro-Knowledge Remarks

President Obama handed the Republican Party a gift for the general election by making a series of offensive pro-knowledge remarks at Rutgers University over the weekend, a leading Republican official said on Monday.

According to Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, the President’s inflammatory comments, in which he offered full-throated praise for such controversial fields of knowledge as math and science, are sure to come back to haunt the Democrats in November. “If President Obama was trying to alienate millions of Americans in one speech, mission accomplished,” Priebus told Faux News…

“…The President seems to be doubling down on this, which is not surprising,” Priebus said. “This is a man who never met a fact he didn’t like.”

The R.N.C. chairman said that the Party was already creating negative ads that would make extensive use of the President’s polarizing pro-knowledge rant.

“This fall, we will ask the American people, ‘Do you want four more years of knowledge, or do you want something else?’ ” Priebus said. “Because the Republican Party has something else.
