Boom boom

"If some of those wonderful people had guns strapped right here, right to their waist or right to their ankle, and this son of a bitch comes out and starts shooting, and one of the people in that room happened to have it and goes boom, boom, you know what? That would have been a beautiful, beautiful sight, folks, that would have been a beautiful, beautiful sight."

not going to let up folks:

Pelosi:"I think we could-win everything-Bless his heart. Trump is the gift that keeps giving to us"

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Donald Trump will help Democrats win more seats in Congress and the White House in November.

"I think we could, today, win everything. Bless his heart. Donald Trump is the gift that keeps giving to us," Pelosi said in a radio interview with John Catsimatidis on "The Cats Roundtable" on New York's AM 970.

"He has helped us enormously," she said of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

"I think we can win it all."


I can hardly wait for Mike Tyson night.


Carl Bernstein: Donald Trump is a ‘pathological liar’ and America’s first ‘neofascist’ nominee

The former Washington Post reporter who was part of the team that uncovered the Watergate scandal in the 70’s, offered a very harsh assessment of Trump, saying “very little truth that comes out of his mouth.”

Trump has “shown himself throughout this campaign to be a pathological liar,” Bernstein stated.”There’s very little truth that comes out of his mouth, so let’s start there.”

“Really, this is about a candidate for president of the United States who does not believe in a free press,” he exclaimed. “He keeps talking about changing libel laws and suing the press and has instituted many, many lawsuits throughout his career. The underlying story here is who is Donald Trump? And I will say, and have said, that we are seeing the nominee of a major political party for the first time in our history, who is a neofascist, a particular kind of neofascist — a strong man who doesn’t believe in democratic institutions.”

“His bigotry is evident and we need to keep looking at it, but this is a story of a candidate who is a total break in our history and we need to be doing reporting on it, not just debating it on television,” he continued. “I think the Washington Post, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal are way ahead of television right now in terms of this candidate — and also in terms of who Hillary Clinton is.”


NRA says The Donald Went Too Far

Chris Cox, the executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, also said on ABC’s “This Week” that he didn’t want people at a nightclub shooting guns while drinking:

COX: Of course not. Of course not. And you can’t be in a nightclub drinking anywhere in this country. What Donald Trump has said is what the American people know is commonsense, that if somebody had been there to — to stop this faster, fewer people would have died. That’s not — that’s not controversial, that’s commonsense.

KARL: But you don’t like the idea of people going into nightclub armed to the teeth?

COX: Of course.


COX: No one thinks that people should go into a nightclub drinking and carrying firearms. That defies common sense. It also defies the law. It’s not what we’re talking about here.


Clarence Thomas may be next to leave Supreme Court?


Justice Clarence Thomas, a reliable conservative vote on the Supreme Court, is mulling retirement after the presidential election, according to court watchers.

Thomas, appointed by former President George H.W. Bush and approved by the Senate after a bitter confirmation, has been considering retirement for a while and never planned to stay until he died, they said. He likes to spend summers in his RV with his wife.

His retirement would have a substantial impact on control of the court. The next president is expected to immediately replace the seat opened by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, providing a one-vote edge in the court that is currently divided 4-4.

Should Thomas leave, that slight majority would continue if Donald Trump becomes president. If it's Hillary Clinton, then she would get the chance to flip two Republican seats, giving the liberals a 6-3 majority.

HOUSTON CHRONICAL: 'This Is The Fault Of THOSE In Public Office Bowing Before The NRA'

after a week of searching I think I found the answer* to what to do:

Congress didn't act after schoolchildren were slaughtered in Newtown. It didn't act after one of their own, Gabby Giffords, was shot in the head in 2011. And our elected officials don't seem likely to do anything different after the LGBT community was made a target of murderous hate in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

This isn't the fault of the Second Amendment. This is the fault of those in public office who worry more about bowing before the NRA than lowering their heads in mourning. *Things won't change until someone else comes and takes their seats.

We don’t hear Republicans talking about the other 70 killers so much, do we?

Sickness: The Media and Republicans Have Done the Orlando Killer’s Bidding

June 12, 2016, Pulse nightclub, Orlando, Florida. The deadliest single attack on the LGBT community in U.S. history was carried out by a hateful young American male. In the aftermath, the national media granted him the instant fame he sought, while Republicans reinforced his desire to make it about religion instead of what it really was: insecurity, hate and bloodlust.


This monstrous 29-year-old male American who murdered 49 people at the Pulse nightclub tried to use some concocted fealty to a distant organization as an excuse for hate. We shouldn’t grant him that excuse. He was simply another young male who embraced the forces of evil over good, of darkness over light. He was a bloodthirsty creature who snuffed out innocent lives and sought fame in the process.

He’s no different from others of his kind. The Washington Post examined 73 U.S. mass killings since 2014 and concluded that only three were connected to Islamic radicalism. We don’t hear Republicans talking about the other 70 killers so much, do we?

Well, let’s talk about them here. They were mostly Christian. They were American. They had two things in common: they craved blood and they sought fame.

They are no different from brutal males posting videos of themselves throwing gay men off rooftops in Syria or brutal males raping children in the DRC. They are no different from their brethren who murder, pillage and rape across the planet.
