If Donald Trump was your doctor...


Posted by liberal N proud | Wed Sep 21, 2016, 05:54 AM (0 replies)

Magician Penn Jillette had to work with Trump: “However bad you think he is, he’s worse.”

Penn Jillette, most famous for being one half of magician duo Penn & Teller, has shared with Reason TV about how Trump is more dangerous than anybody suspects, citing his time working with him on Celebrity Apprentice.

Jillette talked to Nick Gillespie about how, similar to many aspects of Trump’s campaign, even the fundamental set up of the reality show was based on a lie.

“I mean, we’re co-workers on a television show,” Jillette said. “He’s not seeing if he’s going to hire me. He has no job. The places he could hire me—the casinos that he has that have showrooms—he put into bankruptcy. He no longer owns them. So, he can’t hire me, plus I have a job, so that’s all completely fake, right?”

Jillette reported that while he was on the show, the Trump organization tried to coerce him into endorsing a potential Trump presidency.

You had better let go of that Eggo

Kellogg Recalls Eggo Waffles Over Possible Listeria Contamination

It might finally be time to let go of that Eggo, after Kellogg Co. announced Monday that it was recalling some of the popular waffles in 25 states over fears that they may have been exposed to listeria.

Some 10,000 cases of Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles were recalled, the company announced on its website. Kellogg says that routine testing revealed a “potential for contamination” in the products, but that no incidents of illness have been reported.

The Success of the Voter Fraud Myth | You might want to bookmark this one...

New York Times Editorial Board:

How does a lie come to be widely taken as the truth?

The answer is disturbingly simple: Repeat it over and over again. When faced with facts that contradict the lie, repeat it louder.

This, in a nutshell, is the story of claims of voting fraud in America — and particularly of voter impersonation fraud, the only kind that voter ID laws can possibly prevent.

Last week, a Washington Post-ABC News poll found that nearly half of registered American voters believe that voter fraud occurs “somewhat” or “very” often. That astonishing number includes two-thirds of people who say they’re voting for Donald Trump and a little more than one-quarter of Hillary Clinton supporters. Another 26 percent of American voters said that fraud “rarely” occurs, but even that characterization is off the mark. Just 1 percent of respondents gave the answer that comes closest to reflecting reality: “Never.”

As study after study has shown, there is virtually no voter fraud anywhere in the country. The most comprehensive investigation to date found that out of one billion votes cast in all American elections between 2000 and 2014, there were 31 possible cases of impersonation fraud. Other violations — like absentee ballot fraud, multiple voting and registration fraud — are also exceedingly rare. So why do so many people continue to believe this falsehood?


I know this is an editorial piece, but it resonates so much of how the right always gets these myths and fears into the minds of the sheep.
There are a couple of links with some good facts embedded in the article.

This sums up the Birtherism story

Trump admitted the President was born in the US so they could blame Hillary

That is the whole objective of Trump's Friday stunt.

We all think the media suddenly got a spine? They are being played like a fiddle. Every Trump surrogate repeats the same lie on every talking head show. They are using this as a way to project Trump's entire last 8 years of rhetoric on Hillary.

The media has stood up to it but only marginally. They call the lie but then just let the surrogate repeat the same thing and it goes unchallenged because of time constraints.

We can only say the media has turned on Trump if they start calling him for his other lies.

Trump Just Attacked Obama, and George Takei’s Response is PRICELESS

Trump Just Mocked Harry Reid’s Eye Injury. Reid’s Response Is PERFECT

In the latest insult from the rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist running for President for the right, Donald Trump had the audacity to make fun of Harry Reid for an injury that caused him to break four ribs, bones in his face and completely lose sight in one eye.

Reid had been working out with resistance bands in his new home earlier this month when one snapped, sending him flinging him into a file cabinet. When asked about a comment Reid made regarding Trump’s health, Trump responded with, “Harry Reid? I think he should go back and start working out again with his rubber work-out pieces,” implying he should have another accident.

Reid furiously responded in an crushing statement: “Donald Trump can make fun of the injury that crushed the side of my face and took the sight in my right eye all he wants – I’ve dealt with tougher opponents than him,” Reid said in a statement Friday. “I may not be able to see out of my right eye, but with my good eye, I can see that Trump is a man who inherited his money and spent his entire life pretending like he earned it.”

So far in this campaign, Trump has insulted women, pastors, Vietnam veterans, the families of dead war heroes, judges, Hispanics… Now he can add the blind and the elderly to that deplorable laundry list of embarrassing incidents that shows there is no boundary Trump won’t breach or anyone he won’t insult if he feels threatened.

Don't know if this is accurate, Trump's plan to hyjack the debates

Got this that said Trump was planning on hijacking the debates. The article explains an email he sent to his Turmpers asking them what they thought he should talk about and how he was going to ignore the moderators.

If anyone has more information on this, please share as I have never seen this source before: http://samuel-warde.com/2016/09/trump-shows-hand-reveals-plan-hijack-debates/

It’s Not Just About the Tacos

A guy walks into a TV studio. His name is Marco Gutierrez, founder of Latinos for Trump, and he is there to defend Donald Trump’s merciless immigrant-expulsion plan as tough but necessary, given what he knows about Mexicans.

“My culture is a very dominant culture,” he says on MSNBC, the day after Mr. Trump’s Aug. 31 immigration speech in Phoenix, “and it’s imposing and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”

Drugs, rape, murder, tacos: Leave it to the Trump crowd to frame the presidential race as a cultural death match. And leave it to Phoenix — border-state capital and overheated epicenter of the great American immigration freakout — to have gone down this road already, years ago.

Mr. Gutierrez, meet Salvador Reza.

Mr. Reza is an American of Mexican ancestry, a day-laborer organizer, military veteran and teacher, who has spent years in Phoenix being a thorn in the side of racist bureaucrats and law enforcement officials, especially Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the county’s Trump-supporting, serial immigrant abuser.

“People don’t know this,” Mr. Reza said, “but the precursor of all the anti-immigration laws in Arizona was the 1990s taco wars.”
