The GOP stands for "Grabs Our Pussies". REPUBLICAN Stands for...

(R stands for) RAPE, no longer a crime for the new Republican Party. It is now a necessary rite of manhood. Just look at Trump, who bragged about being a pussy grabber and who thinks that (white) men who rape women are a credit to their race/gender because of their

(E stands for )ENTITLEMENT, the principle that if your gender/race/ethnicity/religion once committed brutal atrocities or even genocide on another group in the past on order to steal their wealth/land/labor, then your gender/race/ethnicity/religion are still entitled to steal that other group’s wealth/land/labor until the end of days, because it would be unfair to deprive you of your inherited

(P stands for) PRIVILEGE, the notion that Roland Barthes summed up nicely when he wrote that the right turns “history into nature”. If, once upon a time, your family owned slaves who picked your cotton and made it possible for you to live a life of luxury and leisure then it is the duty of the decedents of those slaves to take all the crap you throw at them so that you can continue to live a life of luxury and leisure, because obviously God and/or Darwin decreed that you and your ancestors were destined to profit from your crimes against humanity. Because people are

(U stands for) UNEQUAL in the eyes of God, who loves those who amass great fortunes, no matter how much blood they spill stealing their wealth. How do we know that Gods love successful criminals/con men/brutal military dictators? Because the successful criminals/con men/brutal criminals tell us that God loves them. And if we do not love them, they string us up on trees and set our bodies on fire or gang rape us or steal our children and give them over to pedophiles, because

(B stands for) BRUTALITY is such an admirable trait in a leader. Whenever possible, a Republican must compound the violence that is done to women/children/immigrants by blaming the victim for being born into a class that has historically been the victim of violence. And if you happen to be born into a privileged class and you do not brutalize whenever possible then there is something wrong with you to believes the

(L stands for) LIES of the victims of brutality. What is a lie? It is anything that would deprive the privileged/entitled classes of their privilege and entitlement. In other words, every accusation of rape against a Black man is true, because that accusation helps the rich get richer by making it easier to oppress all Blacks. And every accusation of rape against a wealthy white man is a lie, because it might cost white men their privilege. When any women accuses a wealth white man if rape, she

(I stands for) INSULTS him, and to today’s Republican, insults are the sole prerogative of those who have declared themselves “better” than others. Since the law of the land no longer allows them to lynch with impunity, they use words---insults----as weapons, denouncing the female victims of violence as “sluts”, the immigrant children victim of violence as “illegal”, the third world victims of colonial violence as words too ugly to repeat here. They use and abuse their Constitutional right to free speech to strip others of their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This holds doubly true for those Republicans who have given up their humanity and now consider themselves

(C stands for) CORPORATIONS, which are not bound by the usual social and moral laws. Corporations have only one imperative—turn a profit. If you can get away with tripling the cost of your drug, you triple it. If you can cut costs by hiring a mercenary army to brutalize workers in another country, you hand out rifles and machetes and pat yourself on the back when the soil in that country turns red with blood. You buy and sell Republican politicians the way that the wealthy of Europe once bought Papal pardons, and you cement your right to buy a government for the corporations by the corporations by installing your flunkies on the Supreme Court and having them declare that corporate money is better than all other money and therefore has a special right to make its demands heard. Remember when Jesus drove the moneylenders out of the Temple? Those days are over. The GOP now worships

(A is for) ANTICHRIST, the exact opposite of everything that Jesus ever did, said or stood for. Only a loser sacrifices himself to save another. The good Republican uses bones spurs as an excuse to escape the draft. The good Republican sets up his money making operation in the heart of mega-Churches, because what good is spirituality if it does not make someone money? The good Republican would never minister to the poor. The good Republican knows that it is better to steal the crust of bread from a poor man’s mouth—the starving are too weak to fight back, and anyone who does not pick a fight he knows that he can win is a pussy. The good Republican does not heal the sick----he drives the sick into bankruptcy and steals their homes and forces the sick and their families to live on the streets. The good Republican keeps a big stockpile of stones, because he knows that the first to start throwing stones is the one who is most likely to walk away with all the marbles. Of course, when the rich run amok, slashing wages, depriving children of food, hiring pedophiles to supervise incarcerated children and applauding rapists as gender heroes, then they turn our country into a

(N is for) NIGHTMARE of Apocalyptic proportions. The Four Horsemen, Famine, War, Pestilence and Death are members of the Republican Party, because there is so much money to be made from war, so much money to be made from disease, so much money to be made from food shortages, so much money to be made from being able to use the threat of death against those who only want to protect their homes, their families, their values, their freedom.

The modern Republican Party is the Beast.

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies”

Revelation 13


Don't get me wrong. Trump is not the Devil with a capital D. He is a devil against democracy, a political evil. The modern Republican Party is a criminal organization which openly denounces and violates the rules of our democratic form of government. It uses the Constitution to wipe its ass. It tells lies, each of them more obvious than the last and exults in its power to tell lies and break the law and rape, steal, kidnap and murder with immunity, because its power is all the justification that it needs. The Beast lives by no moral code. The Beast gains its power through the sheer bravado with which it violates the most basic morality. The Beast speaks to our darkest natures. The Beast is us, but we are so much more than the Beast.

Want to cast the Beast into “a lake of fire burning with brimstone”? Be glad that you live in a democracy and not in Ancient Rome.

Vote.

Kavanaugh is Nothing But a Mob Lawyer and the Mob is Coming for You: An Open Letter to Soccer Moms

Kavanaugh is a Mob Lawyer...and the criminal, corrupt Republican Party is proudly trying to appoint him to the Supreme Court for life so that they and their wealthy donors can Get Out of Jail Free for all their many crimes.

Remember how bent out of shape the GOP was when W. tried to appoint his own Harriet Meyers to the SCOTUS so that he could be assured of at least one vote in his favor should the worst happen (to him, not the country)? Kavanaugh is Trump's Harriet Meyers. The litmus test was almost certainly "Can I count on you to protect me if I ever have a case before the court?" And Kavanaugh's answer was probably something like "I will always be faithful to you, Padrone. May I kiss your ring now?"

Kavanaugh is like Nixon appointing John Mitchell to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh is like Al Pacino being appointed to the SCOTUS by Marlon Brando. Under Kavanaugh the Rule of Law will be replaced by the Rule of the Lawless.

Rank and file Republicans who find Latino immigrants scary should consider what it means for them when the highest court in the land is in the pocket of organized crime. It means that if Sheldon Adelson wants to build a casino in your wealthy, waterfront enclave, he will pay politicians to "eminent domain" your house---and the courts will let him. It means that if the Mob wants to shut down drug rehab programs and have users sent to for profit prisons instead where they can be recruited to become drug dealers, your teenager will face years in jail---and a very bleak future---when he is caught experimenting with drugs. It means that if you try to blow the whistle on your company for dumping carcinogens into the local water supply, you will find yourself out of work and unemployable. It means that if your husband's boss embezzles your husband's retirement fund, you had better get used to eating cat food. It means if the oil industry wants the US military to invade another country, your son--and maybe even your daughter--will be drafted and sent off to die. Assuming that your daughter has not already died from a botched back alley abortion---or been sent to jail for trying to terminate her own pregnancy with mail order methotrexate.

Soccer moms beware. Kavanaugh is not going to make your world safer. Kavanaugh is going to empower criminals. And the criminals are not going to target Latino immigrants---Latino immigrants do not have anything worth stealing. The organized criminals that Kavanaugh represents are going to target Americans with enough money to make them worthy targets but not enough money to buy protection--the upper middle class.

It Will Not Take 67 Senators to Take Down Kavanaugh. Here Is Why

Everyone seems to assume that Supreme Court Justices have the same immunity from criminal prosecution that the POTUS has. And that they keep that immunity for life. And therefore, the only way they can be punished for their crimes is if 67 members of the US Senate agree that they should be punished for their crimes.

However, a Supreme Court Justice is not exempt from criminal prosecution. And it is a crime to lie to Congress--a crime that can get one jail time. Kavanaugh has lied to Congress. That much is fairly certain. The moment that the DOJ is no longer controlled by the Russian Mob, the attorney general can prosecute him. For perjury. For conspiracy to hack and distribute stolen e-mails. Hell, for all we know Mueller has dirt on him and is waiting for him to land in a position of power before making his first move--the more a potential defendant has to lose the more willing he will be to rat out his co-conspirators.

The GOP is taking a huge chance trying to force someone as dirty as Kavanaugh down America's throat. They would be smarter to look for some squeaky clean conservative jurist with no political ties. And Kavanaugh is a fool if he thinks that once he gets on the Court his life will be easy. On the contrary, he will have a great big "Prosecute me" sign on his back.

Once the senate confirms him, the real fun will begin.

The Traitor in Chief Must Go

Donald Trump has made the office of the president of the United States a joke.

The close proximity of his pudgy little finger to the "red button" inspires fear.

He has crippled our national security.

He has destroyed our children's economic future with his crushing national debt.

He is obviously senile and possibly deranged. If he feels threatened, there is no telling what he might do. And a fair election will almost certainly put his illegal presidency in jeopardy, meaning that he will stop at nothing to stop the election. Many schools are polling places. Do we really want a man who refuses to condemn the NRA and school shooters to be in charge of enforcing the law this fall when the easiest way to shut down the polls will be to encourage homegrown right wing extremists to attack polling places that just happen to also be schools (a real two-fer for the right wing)? Do we?

This is not tin foil. This is not conspiracy theory. Some schools are already closing on election day. They see the writing on the wall, and they don't want to put children in harm's way. But what does it say about our country that the democratic process puts the lives of kids in danger? This is not right.

The Traitor in Chief must go.

Beto does not pander. Beto shows that Democrats are not afraid of ethnic diversity.

In particular, not afraid of Latino culture--the same culture that the Republicans have been trying to cast as "dirty", "disease ridden", "sex crazed"--and all the other adjectives that Nazis employed when they tried to gin up fear of Jewish people in Germany in order to facilitate their fascist coup.

A certain self-styled "progressive" political pundit recently accused Beto of attempting to "pander" to Hispanic voters through his use of his own nickname. Not going to give the self styled progressive's name or a link, because he does not deserve the attention. Just some criticism. Never mind that he is repeating a Ted Cruz talking point. He misses the real point, which is that for centuries, people from non-Anglo cultures have attempted to make themselves less threatening to their fellow Americans by adopting Anglo names, clothes, habits.

Well, some of us Americans are just not that enthused by Anglo culture. Some of us like cultural diversity. Some of us do not vote for people from other ethnic groups despite their differences but because of their differences---America is great because the melting pot has absorbed so many different cultures, so many different ways to do things, so many different potential solutions to the many problems that afflict humanity.

Diversity is the key to survival. Charles Darwin taught us that. Incest---basically, what the White-pride wing of the Republican Party is all about--means slow death of the species through failure to adapt. The same principle holds true on a socio-economic level.

When Beto runs for Senate using his actual nickname that he acquired while growing up in El Paso, Texas, he is not pandering. He is saying that Democrats are not afraid to be ourselves--and "ourselves" is not just the blood that flows in our veins, it is the neighborhoods where we grew up, it is our neighbors, our schools, our friends.

Beto does not pander. Beto empowers. Beto is the antidote to fear.

How to Protect the Urban Vote

Russia can win if it targets the urban vote.

1) Total vote tabulations in some precincts can be erased so that incumbents get to stay in office even though the polls showed them losing. A Russian hack can do this easily and with e-voting and no paper trail there will be no recount. Do this enough times and the GOP can maintain narrow control of the House.

2) In cases in which the seat is held by a Democrat but the state has a GOP governor and Secretary of State, they can declare that the seat is now "vacant" and the governor can install a selected Republican with plans to hold a special election "once the cause of the hack has been determined." I.e. never.

3) Trump can declare "martial law" in major urban areas that will influence the vote on election day in key districts. Not too many, but one or two, where it counts the most.

4) Right wing groups or Russian posing as right wing groups can make bomb threats at polling places in urban areas on election day. By attacking an urban polling place (anthrax mail, letter bomb) during early voting, Russia can make this type of threat even more effective so look for some kind of "terror threat" in later October. Again, in an urban area key to the Dem's chances of winning an election. This can easily be combined with 3. Trump can send in troops to "protect" the polls but in fact the troops will make it impossible for anyone to get to the polls.

5) Cyber attacks targeting utilities and mass transit in urban areas will also be part of Russia's plan. Keep people from the polls.

Note that any political strategist can easily figure out which urban areas are the most important to Democratic chances. I suggest getting prepared in advance. These places will have Democratic councils and mayors. Have local law enforcement create plans to protect the polls and enlist the FBI IN ADVANCE. That way, when the "home grown terra group" makes its move, the plan can be implemented and Trump can be told "We have this under control." As for number 5, make sure that urban areas publicize early voting and make it as easy as possible to early vote. And for number 1 and 2 create a back up paper trail for the urban vote. Cities have the money and the power. They can resist. They just need to be prepared.

"It's not right to send people to hell."

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2018/07/25/a-swedish-student-stopped-an-afghan-mans-deportation-by-refusing-to-sit-down-on-a-plane/?utm_term=.7a4143d18bb5

When Elin Ersson learned that an Afghan man was scheduled to be deported from Sweden on Monday, she bought a ticket for the same flight. Once she boarded the plane at Gothenburg airport, Ersson refused to take her seat, standing in the aisle, until the 52-year-old deportee was released.

Her dramatic act of civil disobedience, which she live-streamed on Facebook in English, forced the flight to be delayed by two hours, according to Swedavia, the company that operates the airport. Ultimately, her efforts succeeded — at least for the time being. The Afghan deportee was escorted off the plane before it took off.

snip

“I’m trying to change my country’s rules,” she responds. “It’s not right to send people to hell.”


“But you’re preventing all these customers from going to their destination,” the man says.


Which destination is that? Why don't people understand that the human race is one race? If we send one man (or family or child) to hell, we all go to hell.

Any Church That Would Have THIS WOMAN Teach a Sunday School Class....

...is a travesty of Christianity and Jesus weeps tears of blood every time that woman opens her mouth as she did in this Washington Post piece about why members of the religious right are willing to forgive Trump for his crotch grabbing and lies in exchange for his embrace of white supremacy .

“Slaves were valued,” she said. “They got housing. They got fed. They got medical care.”


https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/national/wp/2018/07/21/feature/god-trump-and-the-meaning-of-morality/?utm_term=.3440c0ffa562

What does "morality" mean to the Christian Coalition?
Answer: apparently it means owning slaves who will do all the hard work while you laze on the front porch sipping mint juleps and living the easy life.

I hope THIS WOMAN is enjoying her 15 minutes of fame. The things people will say to get their pictures in the newspaper! Not writing her name. It is better not to post the names of serial killers and other moral reprobates--it encourages others to follow their example.

A Murderous Russia Thug, His US Lackey, 8500 Nukes and Smallpox Virus--the Axis of Armageddon



What do you get when you cross President Putin (who is so "extremely powerful and strong" ) with President Trump (who is so very weak and cowardly)? You get essentially all the world's nuclear weapons and biologic weapons and chemical weapons in the hands of a single dictator and his henchman.

No wonder the evangelicals and the Neo-Nazis and the trailer park failures who hate their miserable, squalid lives love Trump. All of them are dreaming of the end of the world. They want to die--and they want to take everyone else with them, because when you hate yourself that much, you hate everyone else, too.

We are the Axis of Evil, people. It is our job to resist. For the sake of the entire planet. Just like the members of the White Rose in Nazi Germany. Except that our job is easier, because we still have a vote--if we get off our asses and use it.

Trump:"President Putin was extremely strong and powerful"

And we all know that Trump is a two timing, self serving, cowardly, flunky who sucks up to strong and powerful men.
