'A new day is coming to Latin America': Donald Trump warns Venezuelan military leaders

The Fat Cats of Monolopy Capitalism are turning the screws again.

Do Americans or anyone else with a brain actually want traitor donald j trump and the current crop of pubican traitors to shape the Western Hemisphere? They've done such a great job in the Middle East and with Korea, NATO, etc. - why not allow them to bring more American expertise to Latin America again?

That's always worked out so well in the past.


Capitalist aggression always does work out well, for a few Fat Cat Capitalists, that is.

Venezuela needs help. Not the opposite of help - donald trump. I wish some foreign power would install a "leader" here - oh wait, one already has.

'A new day is coming to Latin America': Donald Trump warns Venezuelan military leaders

"WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump bluntly put Venezuela’s military leaders on notice Monday that they should embrace the Latin American country’s new political leadership or they will risk their lives and their nation’s future.

In unusually harsh language, Trump said millions of people in Venezuela are suffering from hunger and death while military leaders in the oil-rich nation support a corrupt, repressive regime that has hidden away billions of dollars.

“We know who they are, and we know where they keep the billions of dollars they have stolen,” Trump said during a speech in Miami.

Trump’s remarks came just weeks after his administration recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s president and were directed at Florida’s Venezuelan community as he tries to appeal to Latino votes heading into the 2020 election."

I wonder if the Venezuelan and Latino voters referenced in the article realize they're being played just like everyone else trump cheats a deal with?

If not, I certainly hope they are aware of the consequences.

Socialism is no longer a dirty word, and here's why Opinion

I identify politically as a Democratic Socialist but, unlike many capitalists I know, I realize that there is no perfect economic system. I believe no economic system is perfect and each economic system needs components from other systems. I've seen charts of U.S. economic activity that reveal a boom and bust cycle that capitalists would NEVER condone in a socialist system! Yet this cycle is perfectly fine with them in a capitalist system.


Not to mention the capitalists Fat Cats who declare economic warfare on any socialist system that dares rear its head in the Western Hemisphere.

I know for a fact that our current style of American capitalism doesn't work on its own. Proof? See: America 2019. The wage and wealth disparity in our economic system is at levels last seen during The Great Depression - another capitalist high point.

However, socialism is just fine for giant record profit making American corporations who get tax incentives for doing what they're supposed to do on their own - run a profitable business and employ people to do the necessary labor - while they pay ZERO in corporate income tax and while their billionaire owners get billions more in tax breaks at OUR expense.

That's the definition of Socialism, IMO. But in reverse Robin Hood fashion. OUR money is being transferred to the top!

But when it's universal health care, living wage, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. - THAT SOCIALISM IS NO GOOD FOR WE THE PEOPLE! It's too expensive. lofl

Who do they think they're kidding?

US. That's who.

Here's an opinion piece from New Jersey's largest newspaper for all you Fat Cat capitalists to ponder while you horde OUR resources for yourselves.

Socialism is no longer a dirty word, and here’s why | Opinion

"Months before Donald Trump’s strange attack on socialism during the State of the Union address, the White House Council of Economic Advisers did something even more bizarre. It released a 72-page report in October called “The Opportunity Costs of Socialism,”which acknowledged the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth and noted that “self-declared socialists are gaining support in Congress and among much of the electorate.”

The administration was clearly worried — and for good reason.

As Bloomberg reported as early as November 2017 under the headline “Get Rid of Capitalism? Millennials Are Ready to Talk About It,” socialism was already a hot topic, with a debate about economic philosophies drawing a sellout crowd in New York. Since then, the enthusiasm has steadily grown. The Democratic Socialists of America, which had already seen a surge in its membership during the Bernie Sanders campaign in 2016, saw another surge last fall with the election of New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. According to a Gallup poll in August, only 45 percent of Americans aged 18 to 29 viewed capitalism positively, compared with 51 percent for socialism.

And, along with Ocasio-Cortez and Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, dozens of other self-proclaimed socialists were swept into office at the state and local levels in the midterms. But perhaps most worrying to the powers that be, more Americans are embracing socialist policies. Medicare for all, which was widely portrayed as radical by the mainstream media when Sanders promoted it just a few years ago, is supported by 70 percent of the public, including most Republicans, according to recent polls. Taxing the rich also polls well with most Americans, as do the $15 minimum wage and tuition-free public colleges and universities. And, with the release of the alarming report by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change last October, a majority of voters now worry about climate change and recognize the human hand in it, giving hope to supporters of a Green New Deal."

I was wrong and I want to apologize to leftynyc

I made statements based on insufficient information, assumptions and ignorance. I researched information and talked to people and found my assumptions were not only wrong but hurtful, which I should have know. I realize now that so many of the people I know who send their children to Israel aren't dual citizens but just Jews who want to visit their home.

I'm sorry leftynyc for being what I hate most - an ignorant bigot. I'll try to be more sensitive and careful with all my thoughts and words here from now on.

Well, all except for that traitor trump.


trump really can't read

I find this both amusing and terrifying for obvious reasons. He really is an idiot in the purest clinical sense of the word. These definitions are archaic and considered offensive now but they fit trump to a "t" and I don't mind being offensive towards that bastard anytime at all.


"Idiot, imbecile, and moron were, not so long ago, used in a psychological classification system, and each one was assigned to a fairly specific range of abilities.

Idiots.—Those so defective that the mental development never exceeds that or a normal child of about two years.
Imbeciles.—Those whose development is higher than that of an idiot, but whose intelligence does not exceed that of a normal child of about seven years.
Morons.—Those whose mental development is above that of an imbecile, but does not exceed that of a normal child of about twelve years.

Report: Donald Trump is Hooked on Phonics

By Connor Garrett
Posted on January 8, 2018

Donald Trump pretends to read.

"Sources close to the White House say President Trump was absolutely furious after Sarah Huckabee Sanders read him excerpts from Michael Wolff’s new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

One criticism apparently disturbed the former reality television star above all of the others outlined in the book — the claim that the president cannot read, or at best, has poor reading comprehension skills.


“The president has devoted himself to Hooked on Phonics,” says Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “Not that he couldn’t read or anything. But a genius never stops learning.”

The president is reportedly driven by a desire to read Fire and Fury all by himself. He has made some progress, yet he still has not completed a chapter book. Trump prefers “the books with pictures.”


There is a CRISIS at our BORDER and we need a WALL! ASAP!

Our border is unsecured and we are in grave danger of being taken over by aliens more insidious than any you have ever previously imagined! We need a "BIG BEAUTIFUL WALL"! ASAP!

I'm not talking about our hard-working brown neighbors to the south that American racists don't want here, who are risking their lives looking for a better life while trying to escape the violence and gangs that are the result of U.S. president richard nixon's now nearly fifty year old failed and immoral U.S. war on drugs.

This is MUCH worse! I'm talking about people who look like us. They talk almost like us. They "pass" for American ALL THE TIME! They are even on our TV shows and we usually don't even realize it until we check IMDB! These invaders are WHITE!

They are -CANADIANS!!!

They could be here already, taking over not only the government but all the little day-to-day jobs and interactions all real Americans take for granted without us ever knowing until it's TOO LATE! If it isn't too late ALREADY!

We must begin keeping our eyes and ears open for clues. Do "Americans" you speak with ever use the expression, "Eh" to end sentences? Too much hockey gear in their foyer? Drink Canadian Club whiskey when they could drink good American bourbon? Do you every hear people in the supermarket complaining, "This isn't real bacon! It's not even round!"

They could be illegal Canadian cell members here plotting to take over our nation and destroy our way of life!

Our border with Canada is the longest unprotected border on earth! This is a huge crisis! SOMETHING MUST BE DONE NOW! So, I'm proposing a BIG BEAUTIFUL WALL for our entire northern border with those insidiously disguised pseudo-Americans to our north.

I'm sure you'll all agree. So, please send your thoughts on our northern border crisis and the need for a 3,000 mile contiguous wall to the White House and demand we begin building a wall to protect America from insidious, likeable, polite, virtually undetectable WHITE people from Canada who are obviously coming here to take over our nation.



Canada? LOFL


We are, of course, you suckers. Just like we'll pay for that other unnecessary wall for that other fake crisis created by that racist orange bastard squatting in our White House along with his "wife" - America's first illegal alien "first lady".

Quite ironic. Don't you think?


Unsolved mass lynching grand jury testimony set for release thanks to N.J. lawyer who took on Trump

"A judge on Monday ruled grand jury transcripts from the investigation into the 1946 unsolved murders of two black couples - brutal killings known as America’s last mass lynching - should be released after the efforts of New Jersey lawyer.

A federal appeals court upheld a lower court decision to unseal the documents, which stem from an FBI probe into the horrific July 1946 murders of Roger and Dorothy Malcom, and George and Mae Murray Dorsey in rural Monroe, Georgia. The decision came from a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The U.S. Department of Justice argued grand jury transcripts are secret, while lawyer Joseph J. Bell Jr., of Bell & Shivas in Rockaway, countered that the historical significance of the files warranted an exception.

“It will shine a bright light on a dark part of American history,” Bell said of the decision Monday."


Many Americans fail and/or refuse to realize that the last lynching in this country was in 1981!

And if you have the stomach to read some of the comments at the link you'll soon realize that for some "people" nothing much has really changed.

Donald Trump Jr. Praises Native American Genocide Joke About Elizabeth Warren: 'Savage!!!'

Source: Newsweek

Donald Trump Jr. followed his father's foosteps and used disparaging references to Native Americans in order to insult Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren's recent 2020 presidential campaign announcement.


"The Native American genocide continued with another murder by the president," tweeted the appropriately nicknamed right-wing media figure, Michael Malice.

Donald Trump Jr. stepped in to retweet the two white men's disparaging comments with the message, "Amazing. Love my president!!!" But then the president's son decided to follow his dad's poor taste "TRAIL" of Tears reference with a poor pun of his own.

"Savage!!! Love my President," Donald Trump Jr. posted on his Instagram page Saturday, highlighting the same conversation. Immediately, Trump Jr.'s followers rushed to defend his "edgy" comment being "savage" from offended Instagram users. Many responses pointed Trump supporters over to charts showing the mass, forced relocation of Native Americans at the behest of the U.S. federal government during the 19th Century.

'This golf course was built by illegals.' Trump's N.J. club hired undocumented workers for years

First, I hate using the word "illegals" it's in the title and it's their title.

Here is an article from New Jersey's largest newspaper providing more information on trump's immigration hypocrisy.

BTW - the dirty rat bastard is busy purging them all from the properties they helped build for a fraction of the true cost right now.

‘This golf course was built by illegals.’ Trump’s N.J. club hired undocumented workers for years, report says

"There was a pipeline of workers who illegally crossed the U.S. border from Costa Rica and ended up with jobs at President Donald Trump’s New Jersey golf courses, according to a report in the Washington Post.

The newspaper spoke to 16 men and women from Costa Rica and other Latin American counties, including six from the same town on Costa Rica’s tallest mountain, who said they had worked at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, the report said. Most said they used fake Social Security cards and working papers they purchased in Bound Brook and neighboring towns, but their supervisors were aware of their illegal status.

“Many of us helped him get what he has today,” Dario Angulo, who said he spent seven years as a groundskeeper at Trump National, told the Ppst. “This golf course was built by illegals.”


"The Washington Post said the newspaper obtained a police report showing Trump National’s head of security was told in 2011 about an employee suspected of using false identification papers. That is the first known documentation that the Trump organization was warned it was hiring immigrants living in the country illegally."


A new marijuana lobbying effort just sprung up in D.C. with this big-time politico at its head

From the Twilight Zone department.

While New Jersey Democrats, who control the State House and the Governor's Office, can't seem to get their legalization act together, and in fact have for some reason mixed up medical cannabis reform of the program that criminal chris christie totally ruined with legalization to slow things down to the point were NOTHING is getting done in this arena, a former pubican Speaker of the House is now trying to fix what we can't seem to fix ourselves!

You just can't make this stuff up. There is a ton of money to be made. pubicans are in it for the money. Why aren't we in it if for no other reason than to do what's right?

We're fighting pubican nixon's near 50 year old failed war on drugs that was predicated on eradicating cannabis and now a pubican is going to lobby for legalization? Where are our leaders on this? As usual, too afraid to step outside the box that the pubicans have built but aren't afraid to step out of themselves if the money is right, as always.


A new marijuana lobbying effort just sprung up in D.C. with this big-time politico at its head
Updated 12:34 AM; Posted 11:33 AM

WASHINGTON — Proponents of ending the federal ban on marijuana have picked up a powerful ally.

The National Cannabis Roundtable will be spearheaded by former House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who already is involved in the marijuana business as a member of the board of advisors of Acreage Holdings, one of the nation’s largest cannabis cultivation, retail and real estate companies.

Boehner will provide advice and serve as honorary chairman of the roundtable.

“The states have led on this,” Boehner said Friday in a conference call with reporters. “The federal government is lagging behind.”

Mayor shamed lawyer into resigning over offensive Facebook meme but her allies shared the same post

Source: NJ.com

A day after a public defender working for Hamilton Township was asked to resign after sharing an insensitive post on Facebook, three other members of township staff are accused of similar behavior.

Three township employees, including one who worked on Mayor Kelly Yaede’s campaign staff, all shared insensitive memes on their personal Facebook pages, according to screenshots seen by NJ Advance Media.

One of the employees, an engineer with the township, shared the same meme referencing the KKK that Edward Gore, a public defender that had worked with the township, had shared. The shared image compared Democrats wearing white at this week’s State of the Union to Ku Klux Klan. Gore, who is a former Republican town councilman, was asked to resign on Wednesday, hours after the post was brought to the attention of the administration.

The other two employees shared an image mocking Muslims. The photo depicts a Muslim man sitting on a toilet saying Muslims, “don’t use toilet paper. They use their hand.”

This is Hamilton Township Mercer County New Jersey. It's a pubican shithole, to quote our traitor-in-chief's terminology, but it's still New Jersey and the very idea that this type of partisan bullshit is infecting a so-called blue state at this level is indicative of the atmosphere our own twitler is creating every day he's allowed to remain in the office he stole.

I believe endemic racism from public defenders and mayoral staff is as reprehensible or worse than any behavior Democrats are being forced to resign over. Where is the outcry for Mayor Yeade to resign?

This should go NATIONAL. Viral. Whatever you call it these days.
