Trump let the cat out of the bag

"They step one infoot inside the border, and they ask, 'Do you want to register?' "

So very afraid that immigrants will attain citizenship and then register to vote.

Turned off his speech to the cabinet. His bullshit just never ends. I mean really!

Pathetic lie that child sex traffikers are making a fortune. His for-profit kiddee prisons are doing well also.

I had to mute the volume, else I'll get angry and call him an asshole stumble-bum. Definitely a bum.

What's under all of it

The fear - the knowledge - that if brown people immigrate into the US and achieve citizenship and/or birth children while in the US; the majority of those brown people will not register as Republicans. They will vote to raise taxes on the rich, raise worker wages, increase funding for healthcare, education, worker rights, the social safety net.

No matter what, logic says that brown and black people cannot be held down and back forever.

Consider this

population of the US is 320M
population of China is 1.37B
population of India 1.32B

Defeat American Neo-Fascism

As a Buddhist, I am sorely challenged to not hate the evil vile cruel stupid policies of the Neo-Fascists among us. The cowardly Republicans. The stupid hateful bigoted racists. And at the same time, as a Buddhist, compassion compels me to resist and to work in my own way to defeat them. Every day, we must call it what it is - Fascism. No more using more gentle terms, like "authoritarian." No more saying that they are "not factual." The truth is: they knowingly lie, and their lies become more brazen every day.

Morn Joe spends entire show on Trump's child kidnappings

Mika spends her whole show outraged over the Trump Fascist policy of kidnapping children and holding them as extorsion to get congress to fund his wall. Repeatedly calling him a liar. Refusing to allow any Republicans to come on her show and tell lies.

But she hasn't yet called them Neo-Fascists. That's what I want to see. More and more media labeling them as Fascists.

It is a violation of the 8th Amendment of the Constitution

Separating children from their parents is a violation of the 8th Amendment of the Constitution.

The Eighth Amendment (Amendment VIII) of the United States Constitution prohibits the federal government from imposing excessive bail, excessive fines, or cruel and unusual punishments. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that this amendment's Cruel and Unusual Punishment Clause also applies to the states.

Well the good news is that Trump is a liar

He will promise the moon and deliver nothing but grief. So just as he tells us hyperbolic lies, we have to remember that he will tell Kim whatever lies seem excellent in the moment. Trump's promises to Kim are just as worthless as his agreements to the G7 and his promises that Mexico will build the wall, or that he will provide healthcare that is better and cheaper than Obamacare.

Only he can fix it! Right?

I feel much better now, knowing that his agreements to Kim are worthless.

No war games in south Korea?

That's what the Asshole said. Gosh we can save soooo much money. He just decided that on a whim. Didn't bother to consult with South Korea or Japan or his own military chiefs or his own Defense Director. Nope, no need to consult with anyone, because only he can fix things.

To me, this is the most frightening outcome of this fiasco. The Japanese must be seething this morning.

It's to be expected from a man with no moral compass

It's to be expected. No surprise at all. A man, who sits by idly allowing children to be taken from their mother's arms and then locked up in dog cages. That he could hypocritically defend the flag and then display it repeatedly next to the North Korean flag. That he could come out and tell us of his great success making a good relationship with a murderous tyrant.

We were recently asking "where is the bottom? To what depths will he stoop?" Sadly there is no bottom.

And sadly for us, the world has seen this movie before, when 2 tyrants form a mutual admiration society.

It's all a flim-flam. We are being played.

Trump shows up with no physicists or scientists of any kind. No sanctions experts. No Korea diplomatic experts. No secretary to official notes. We're supposed to just trust them. It's just a photo op for Trump, where he will claim tremendous success. They will declare it a great accomplishment and peace is near. Great progress is being made. blah blah blah But there will be no details. No timeline. Just a con man's bullshit flim-flam.

I feel disgusted with it. Really sorry I tuned in to watch it.
