War Donkey


Allow me to introduce War Donkey – first place this Canadian goes for perspective on American politics. Copied below, a impeachment update posted tonight by War Donkey founder Dave Consiglio. “Impeachment Updates” reads like a comedy sketch, so warped it couldn’t possibly document reality. Time to stop laughing, clucking and wringing hands. Wake up America! This is real.

False Flag


Okay so you haven’t heard of the McFiles Network, few have, it boasts a paltry 12.7 thousand followers. Trouble is there are thousands of sites just like it. We ask ourselves how Trump prevailed in 2016, convince ourselves it couldn’t possibly happen again. News flash – it can and will if we don’t stop clucking sureties that conservative America knows better than to repeat itself.

Last week ultra right wing conspiracy theorists Chris McDonald and Mark Taylor broadcast blustering agreement that Hurricane Dorian is a “false flag” created by the deep state to distract Americans from the fact former FBI Director James Comey along with un-named high level members of Obama’s administration are destined to serve time in federal prison.

“When you get these stories and all of a sudden—boom—you’ve got an almost Category 6 storm, it does not take a genius to figure out it’s called a distraction and it’s called a false flag.”

“Absolutely, brother,” agreed Taylor. “These guys are going to be indicted, they are going to go to jail, they are going to go to prison so it’s coming, guys, we just have to be patient. But it’s not by coincidence that the hordes of chaos have been released because they know their time is short.”

Chris McDonald and Mark Taylor Agreed That Hurricane Dorian Is a ‘False Flag’

McDonald and Taylor support Trump, as do countless like minded right wing bulldozers. Unless America suspends belief, acknowledges mindsets of  formidable conservative brick walls and vows to extract voter outrage from every last citizen – Trump will stain the White House in 2020.

Now Be Fair


A few minutes ago my head exploded. Tempered debate of racism focused on recent Trump remarks suggesting four Congresswomen of colour go back to their native country. Polite reminders, all but one (Somali born representative Omar) were born in America, met begrudging acknowledgement. Then this, a comment so absurd violent brain splatter erupted without apology –

“Now be fair!

None of the 20 or so women that have accused Trump of sexual assault or rape are women of colour.

Surely this shows he greatly respects them compared to white women?”

Pardon me? Were you dropped on your head? WTF!!!!!

Trump Tweets That Democratic Congresswomen of Color Aren’t American

Ponder Oscar and Baby Valeria Ramirez


Salvadorian migrant Oscar Ramirez wanted a better life for wife Tania and baby daughter Valeria. Oscar sold his motorcycle, borrowed money from family, travelled over 1,000 miles to the international bridge at Matamoros, Mexico. The bridge was closed, aid workers told them to return the next day. They woke to a line hundreds long. Gazing across the Rio Grande, Brownsville, Texas trumpeted the American dream. Their dream to seek asylum in the “greatest” nation on Earth, their dream to work hard, buy a house, raise their family without fear.

El Salvador, the deadliest place on Earth not in a war zone, boasts a murder rate of 81.2 per 100,000 citizens. For perspective – U.S. murder rate is 5.2 per 100,000, Canada – 1.8 per 100,000. Why is El Salvador so dangerous? Ponder the link below –

Oscar Ramirez wasn’t a drug dealer, gang member or criminal, all he wanted was a safe place to work hard, buy a home, protect his family. We’ll never know what went through Oscar Ramirez’s mind as he waded into the Rio Grande clutching baby Valeria, witnesses say he made it across, sat Valeria on the riverbank and went back for his wife. Little Valeria tried to follow, was swept away and both perished when Oscar tried to save her. Images of Oscar and Valeria face down in murky water, her tiny arm wrapped around his neck went viral, Homeland Security refused comment, Trump heaped blame on Democrats.

“If we had the right laws that the Democrats are not letting us have, those people, they wouldn’t be coming up, they wouldn’t be trying” – Trump said.

“Those people”? Pardon me Mr. Trump, have you forgotten the Declaration of Independence? Thomas Jefferson? How about “all men are created equal”? Let me help you, “those people” have inalienable rights, how dare you blame Democrats for your insanity. Your daddy would be so proud, bet you learned all about “those people” on his knee. Hey Mr. President, see these dead people?

Care to comment with a shred of humanity for victims of your asinine immigration tantrum? Oscar and Valeria whose only crime was hope, optimism and the American dream?

Never mind, it’s not your fault. You’re the greatest president in history, nothing else matters. You warned us, it’s the fault of bleeding heart liberals for not paying attention. Build a wall you said, insulate America from “those people”, let them languish in poverty and fear. The migrant crisis was completely avoidable, why didn’t we listen? Left wing nincompoops ruined everything, Democrats should be apologizing to you for their lack of vision. But for uppity Democrats all of America would play golf in MAGA hats, “those people” would understand “great” nations are reserved for great people. WTF?!!!!

Hillary, Hillary, Hillary…


Never let it be said Donald Trump disappoints his congregation. Last Tuesday Trump nation gathered in Orlando, Florida to hear their pernicious saviour announce his 2020 re-election campaign. Captivated by magnitude of tRump greatness, the faithful unleashed boisterous cheers every time their swami snarled “Hillary”, chanting “Lock her up” with back slapping enthusiasm. In the words of Charles P Pierce, Esquire Magazine –

“By one count, he mentioned her seven times in 30 minutes, including doing a pathetic imitation of HRC during one of their debates, while barely giving Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders a couple of drive-bys. The rest of the speech consisted of one more of the president*’s endless attempts to keep his Velveeta-brained gobshites on fire for him. “-https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/politics/a28099381/donald-trump-2020-campaign-rally-florida-hillary-clinton/

MAGA attire peppered the crowd of extremists, conspiracy theorists, puffed up red necks, Christian fundamentalists and self proclaimed patriots. Outside, the Proud Boys (see link below) sent megaphone postcards –

“When you come out here, it’s a brotherhood. It’s a family. It’s like being at a revival, man,” Joe Biggs, a Florida-based Proud Boys member, could be heard telling another right-wing activist about the Trump rally.

A short time later, journalists filmed the Proud Boys in much larger numbers as they marched through the streets, chanting, “Pinochet did nothing wrong!” The slogan, popular among white supremacists, is a reference to former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s practice of murdering leftists by throwing them out of helicopters.” – Christopher Matias, HuffPost US

Inside tRump frothed –

“A vote for any Democrat in 2020 is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American dream,” he said, ripping “radical” and “unhinged” Democrats even as he made only passing mention of any of the men and women running to replace him.”

“And he painted a disturbing picture of what life would look like if he loses in 2020, accusing his critics of “un-American conduct” and telling the crowd that Democrats “want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it.” – https://globalnews.ca/news/5403729/trump-2020-reelection-launch/

Hillary, Hillary, Hillary – mantra of the greatest disaster in American history.

You’re Watching Fox News, You Just Don’t Know It


Ponder this video….

“We tend to assume that if a story is being covered by major news networks, it’s because journalists have decided that the story is important. But thanks to Fox News, that’s not always true.

The network was specifically created to generate scandals that would hurt Democrats and help Republicans. And because most major networks pay attention to what happens in conservative media, those pseudoscandals end up creeping into mainstream coverage.

The result is a media ecosystem that advantages Republicans by paying disproportionate attention to right-wing talking points.

Wayne LaPierre Caught With Hand In NRA Cookie Jar


NRA chief Wayne LaPierre has some explaining to do.  Trouble began with a spat between the NRA and their long time Oklahoma City based ad agency Ackerman McQueen. Nothing short of acrimony describes NRA’s split with Ackerman McQueen, last month the NRA sued Ackerman for allegedly withholding documentation required for a financial audit of their relationship. Ackerman countered with request for documentation of $240,000 in travel expenses, $200,000 in luxury Beverly Hills Italian suits charged to Ackerman by LaPierre. Oh snap!

Notwithstanding this image of LaPierre which makes it difficult to imagine he spent a dime on custom suits, the New York Stare Attorney General’s Office launched an investigation of NRA finances. Attorney General Letitia James (of the same office which dissolved the Donald J Trump charitable foundation) has the power to dissolve the NRA if evidence proves violation of State charity law.

Justice might finally prevail. Meanwhile I ponder sweet, ironic justice of the NRA imploding, not for flagrant disregard of humanity, but for entitled hubris of their poster boy Lapierre. Sigh.
