Overdosed Conjoined Carnies

Overdosed Conjoined Carnies

In only giving passing mention of last month’s two political conventions, I was going to give an in depth compositional juxtaposition utilizing side-by-side comparisons of event contrasts and how the resultant outcomes affected the Democratic National Convention (DNC) and the Republican National Convention (RNC). However, so much has transpired since the conventions’ elapsed time, I instead will focus more on the current developments. But due to the variable contrasts as so distinctive, I’ll relay a stark, but brief synopsis between the two.

First off, the RNC centered on speeches, comments and chants of ‘locking up’ or even executing ‘crooked’ Hillary while the DNC primarily remained on substance. With the initial RNC roll call of delegate votes causing a raucous rift between Trump and anti-Trump states that erupted into chaos roaring throughout the GOP convention. The DNC had an initial dissonant exchange between Hillary and Bernie delegates after the hacked Democratic National Committee e-mails were revealed at the same instance the convention commenced. With Bernie Sanders’ great aid, the Democrat convention managed the turmoil quite nicely, as it did not disrupt the rest of the convention. Once the convention was over, the e-mails were hardly even an afterthought.

The Republican convention pretty much was centered around fear mongering and spiteful ‘crooked’ Hillary rants while at the Democrat convention, there were swipes directed at Trump, but the swipes could be backed up with substance of exactly what trump has stated like building the wall, incarcerating then deporting all eleven million immigrants and swearing he saw Muslims in New Jersey on television cheering for the 9/11 attack.

One of the highlights in the GOP convention was Melania Trump’s plagiarized speech in stealing a large swath of Michelle’s former speech. Of all the folk to plagiarize, she picks Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech. This must have had a heartfelt warming sensation to all the right-wingers that literally despise the Obamas’.

Of course Republicans attempted to put spin on it, even tried to say that First Lady Michele stole the speech herself from Saul Alinsky; it never panned out though, just more Republican fodder rumors.

But for Republicans to have criticized Michele Obama’s own words as grunge when she gave them, only to praise Michele’s words when they were copied and regurgitated out of a white Republican woman’s mouth is priceless in revealing the biased idiocy.

On the right hand in the GOP convention, you had House Speaker Paul Ryan, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), RNC Chair Reince Priebus, right-wing commentator Laura Ingraham, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), TV Evangelist Jerry Falwell Jr., retired Army General Mike Flynn, U.S. Senator from Arkansas Tom Cotton, former governor of Texas Rick Perry and for sure U.S. Senator from Texas Ted Cruz whom all gave no substantive speeches, but instead enlisted rants, biased rhetoric, or conducted self-promotion. In fact some like Giuliani left the podium foaming at the mouth.
Where were all the superstars in movies and sports promised by Trump? Instead, we got Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr. as pretty much washed up B-actors and little known professional golfer, Natalie Gulbis.

Tom Brady and Tim Tebow, who are or were NFL quarterbacks, backed out of their GOP invites as did a slew of actors.

Although there was much complaining carried out by Republicans for the Democrat convention having black mothers of unarmed children killed by cops be represented with their presence and speeches, it didn’t bother them a bit to parade Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith killed in Benghazi and let her exhort her thoughts on the podium of why her son died in utilizing Republican political rhetoric. She’s now attempting to sue Hillary and the Obama administration for negligence in her son’s death, but as in all the wasted GOP investigations have deadpanned, so too will this lawsuit. It’s simply an amazing thing that Republicans are still attempting to raise political donations off of Benghazi and the deaths of those four Americans. They even had a propagandized video of Benghazi after Mrs. Smith’s speech.     

On the left hand though, First Lady Michelle Obama gave an eloquent performance that by far was the highlight speech of both conventions. Vice-president Joe Biden, retired Marine General John Allen along with his entourage of military backers, Bernie Sanders, gold star parent Khizr Kahn, factory worker Beth Mathias, Jake Reed, Jensen Walcott, Henrietta Ivey, injured in the 9/11 attack Lauren Manning, former congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her astronaut husband Mark Kelly, U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-MN), U.S. Representatives injured Iraqi veteran Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and Joe Kennedy (D-MA), Independent Michael Bloomberg, U.S. chamber of Commerce official and co-founder of ‘Republican Women for Hillary’ Jennifer Pierotti Lim, former Ronald Reagan administration official Doug Elmet and President Obama all gave above average admirable speeches.

Due to health issues, former President Jimmy Carter gave a compelling video speech. His two and a half minute speech is below.

All three living Democrat presidents gave speeches at their convention. But where were any past Republican presidents at the GOP convention? They made it a point not to attend in person or on video.

I know Kahn’s Constitutional speech ranks high and most likely Trump has never read the U.S. Constitution in whole, but I’d like to take note here of another speech that closely parallels the ‘Sermon on the Mount’. This one speech that wasn’t political in nature at all was Reverend William Barber’s. It was inspirational and if you’d like to watch it, the C-SPAN video is below.

In stark contrast, Evangelist Falwell Jr’s speech over at the GOP convention was a tad vile. He recalled a dream of his father’s, the Evangelist Jerry Falwell Sr. As he recalled the mythical vision, Jr relayed his father’s dream of Chelsea Clinton interviewing him, where Chelsea asked what were the three greatest threats to America. Jr continued in saying his father said, “The three greatest threats facing this nation: Osama, Obama and yo mamma. Chelsea’s mamma…you’re fired!”

I’m just supposing Jr thought this was cute as the right-wing crowd lapped it up, but it is a tad on the vile side in being racist and superimposing Obama as Muslim, as if anything would be wrong with that; it’s just that it is to a crowd full of Republicans.

Although absent at the GOP convention, just to mention a few of the superstars that appeared at the Democrat convention, there was: actresses America Fererra, Lena Dunham, ‘Disney Channel’ prodigy Demi Levato, Star Jones, Angela Bassett, Sigourney Weaver and Meryl Streep. Pop stars who performed at convention events were Lenny Kravitz, Cindi Lauper, Kate Perry and Alicia Keyes, among others.

Desperate Housewives star, Eva Longoria gave a convention speech, who said at the convention she is a ninth generation American, and that her family, originally from Mexico, “didn't cross the border, it crossed us,” while the legendary folk rock star, Paul Simon performed ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’.

Rounding it all off, NBA basketball legend, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar gave a speech opening up with some light humor and then gave a good ol’ fashioned American history lesson. His two and a half minute C-SPAN video speech is below.

Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech certainly wasn’t an unforgettable one, but the Donald’s prompter speech if not boring was loaded with dire consequences if he’s not elected due to Islamic terrorism, refugees and immigrants taking us over.

Most like to say that the conventions aren’t really what voters pay attention to, but for this election cycle, I disagree. Trump got a modest 4.5% bump in polling after the Republican convention, but Hillary got a bump into double digits that has been maintained ever since the Democrat convention. They say it is the debates that truly matter. Well, maybe so, but going into the debates that Trump is already hem-hawing about in canceling his participation, having a double digit lead is a very comfortable margin for any politician. Trump must perform a most admirable showing, which he has not done yet and there will be no teleprompters, so he’ll be on his own armed only with rehearsals in which he invariably will go off on, sifting into tangents as he’s always done.     

To put it all in perspective, while the GOP convention’s overall message, besides locking up Hillary, was clamant measures enlisting fear of terrorism and guns taken away as the primary objective in voting Republican. The Democrat convention was uplifting in messaging hope based on policy and substance.

So terrorism and guns are the GOPs bullet points. Really? All Americans should put terrorism as fear number one when on median average (whether by accident, suicide or homicide) over 105 Americans are killed per day by privately owned guns? That adds up to 38, 000 Americans dying yearly due strictly to our own firearms. Seriously, an American has a 1:11,668 chance of being killed by an Islamic terrorist than by home grown firearm violence. This is based on the ‘Center for Disease Control’ (CDC) statistics where from 2005-2015, 24 Americans were killed by terrorists while 280,024 were killed by home grown gun violence.  

In fact, in all of 2015 in the U.S., toddlers, aged three and under killed more Americans with home guns than terrorists did. The total count of 2015 toddler shooting deaths was 21. The total number of U.S. deaths by terrorists, including the Chattanooga and San Bernardino shootings was 19.

Even more Americans were killed by cows per year in that decade on average than by a terrorist act at 20/yr. as opposed to terrorism of 3.2/yr. If ya want to be fearful, then be very afraid of farmer Jones’ moo cow standing out in that pasture just waiting for an opportunity to strike. Logically, it makes more sense to the odds-makers.           

Don’s Plum:
Have ya ever heard of ‘Don’s Plum’? Most likely ya haven’t, for it was a low budget movie that never made it to the theaters. Leonardo Di Caprio and Tobey Maguire starred in it and thought that the film was so bad that they sued to never have it shown in the U.S. Well, there’s another Don that’s so bad in his acting performances, someone might want to lasso a lawsuit around him to make him stick more to facts rather than spouting out constant rhetorical slanders. We all know the Don of whom we’re speaking of here right? Come on sure ya do. It’s Donald J. Trump.

In Trump and some Republican supporters demeaning the Gold Star Kahn family, then justify it in insinuating the father, Khizr Kahn is trying to gin-up notoriety off his soldier son’s death is egregious.

Trump in any other worldly contest of import would be considered a loudmouth imbecile that speaks only in simple terms of what he’ll do without any elaboration on how he’ll do it. Of course Trump acts this way because he knows his support base, which is intentionally ignorant of facts, only wants to hear of what will stoke their misguided beliefs.

It is simply an amazing thing how Trump will complain in insinuating what his opponent is, when the complaint actually fits around his own neck. Whether it’s being accused of being a bully, slandering, or a bigot, he invariably displays these components, but yet declares that is indubitably what his opponent is. Below are a few for instances:

Trump bellows out that China is ground zero for unfair trade practices and will bring back all American companies that have fled there to manufacture goods. He just might want to start with his own corporations. Watch the video below to see how he’s busted by David Letterman.

Of course Trump claims he can’t bring his businesses back to the U.S. because there are no longer any American manufacturers, but in the video below, this manager in the U.S. garment industry begs to differ.

Trump is simply like all other American corporations; he’s chose the source of cheapest labor.

Trump vociferously shouts out that Hillary is a bigot. No sound reasoning, just that her policies have miserably failed minorities because as he said to Anderson Cooper on CNN 08/25/2016...she’s lazy. He’s even doubled down on this venture.

Of all people...for Trump to accuse someone else of being a bigot would be a laughing matter if not for its bogus accusation. Trump is the square peg in showing out loud bigotry. I really needn’t remind anyone of his, not only bigoted, but racist stances; although, I will anyway.

A)  Let’s see, Trump has insinuated, even declared that all Latino illegal immigrants are criminals, rapists and murderers.
B)   Bypass how Americans condemned the Berlin Wall only to build America one much taller and electrified along the Mexican border.   
C)   That an American federal judge with Mexican lineage is not fit to oversee his Trump University lawsuit case.
D)  That he witnessed Muslims celebrating 9/11 joyously dancing in New Jersey streets.
E)   That all Muslims should be banned from entering the states even if they are American citizens wanting to reenter after visiting abroad.
F)    Denying that ‘Black Lives Matter’ has a legitimate claim to police killings of unarmed minorities preferring instead to call them thugs and criminals.
G)  Trump was sued and paid out an unknown sum to would be Black tenants in his apartment complexes by marking their applications with a ‘C’ for colored. The ‘C’ was a flag not to rent to or kick out. The superintendent said he was only doing what he was told to do. Trump denies it of course and blames it all on the superintendent.

Today, in wanting their votes, Trump in his own insane way is trying to reach out to African Americans by telling them, “What the hell do you have to lose.” Meanwhile he hires a white nationalist in Steve Bannon to run his campaign.

Most right-wingers like that in Bannon’s far right leanings, but minorities certainly don’t. What right-wingers won’t like though once they truly find out, is that Bannon rents his Washington, D.C. mansion from a Muslim. Yes that’s correct; Brietbart News has a Muslim landlord.

The so-called ‘Breitbart Embassy’ mansion where website staff works in the basement and Bannon lives in the rest is owned by an Egyptian Muslim named, Mostafa El-Gindy. Bannon claims he owns it, but tax statements and revenues state that Gindy does. As a former member of the Egyptian parliament, Gindy has received very complimentary coverage from ‘Breitbart News’. Got to keep the landlord happy ya know...

Just this August 28th Trump sends out a tweet as stated above. The problem is Hillary has already given a full medical and detailed report from her doctor; even gave details of her health’s history. She’s a healthy 68-yr-old. On the other hand Trump has released a medical report that was written in five minutes without the doctor examining him.

The doctor who filed Trump’s medical health report is Dr. Harold Bornstein, a digestive tract doctor. His report was so elementary that other doctors questioned it. He claims he wrote it where Trump could understand it and also expressed it was hurriedly written due to the folks in the limousine impatiently waiting on it.

Trump/Dr. Harold Bornstein
Now with the entire Republican conspiracy clamor that Hillary is too ill to be president, Donald Jr feels that she is too old as well by tweeting her as “grandma.”  I dunno man, since Hillary is 68 and Donald is 70, maybe that makes Donald Sr a great grandpa.

Besides, if Hillary is too ill and old to be president, why did Trump suddenly cancel four events in the states of Oregon, Colorado, Nevada and Arizona without explanation except for blaming it all on the flooding in Louisiana?                

Trump banters not of Mrs. Clinton, but on Bill Clinton’s past devious deeds with women. From Jennifer Flowers to Monica Lewinsky, he makes sure these episodes aren’t forgotten in hopes that it will reflect negatively on Hillary with female voters. Then he immediately turns around and hires Roger Aisles who is the former Fox News CEO resigning in disgrace because of an array of sexual harassment charges from the network’s female staff.

Trump himself has been under several sexual assault charges and one federal lawsuit just filed by ‘Jane Doe’ claims Trump and his longtime friend Jeffrey Epstein raped her as a sex slave repeatedly in 1994 under an original premise of Epstein offering her a modeling career.

She claims Trump was the first and continued his acts three more times for a total of four rapes. In 1994, Jane Doe was thirteen, so using a defense of consensual agreement, as he has in other cases will not work this time, for she is considered at the time, an underage child at 13-yrs-old.

New York has a five year statute of limitation. Definitely this April 2016 filing is well past 1994 at 22 years, but since the claimant and witness testified that Trump had threatened them and their families with bodily harm or death and in considering her duress in both the men’s large caches of money and power she kept quiet. In other words, she was a kid scared to death. So the limitation may be struck down.

What is really sad during the initial hearings in this case is this document relating to Trump first raping her, “Defendent Epstein then attempted to strike me about the head with his closed fists while he angrily screamed at me that he, Defendent Epstein, should have been the one who took my virginity, not Defendent Trump.

This has been reviewed by Lisa Bloom, a legal NBC analyst and comments that it is credible court testimony.

Now I’m not condoning Willy Clinton’s extramarital affairs while condemning Trump for his; I’m just saying Trump might just want to keep a low brow on bringing up Bill Clinton’s for he has done exactly more of the same and it is him and Hillary running for the presidency, not Willy. But I’m sure Trump will continue along on his foray of this crude adventure in vain attempts to keep women from remembering what he has called women; such as “fat pigs,” “slobs,” “dogs,” “disgusting animals” and references to their menstrual cycles.                         

Trump forever likes to refer to Hillary as “Crooked Hillary” or “Criminal Hillary” but he and his campaign claims it is Hillary who started the name calling when it comes to the word “bigot.” Just this past Sunday (08/28/2016) on the morning political shows, Trump’s newly installed campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and RNC head Reince Priebus respectively said that Trump doesn’t insult and acts mature. The Trump campaign meme now is that Trump “doesn’t hurl insults” and unjust accusations and “shows maturity” as a candidate. Of course after announcing this, the very next morning Trump immediately goes to tweeting insults just like an immature third grader would.

In the first above tweet, just hours after Conway and Preibus’ proclamations, Sunday night Trump tweets that MSNBCs commentator, Donny Deutsch is little, nasty, a failure and irrelevant.

Besides calling someone criminal when you’re under federal investigation for fraud in two states, sounds at least a tad ironic if not moronic don’t ya think...

Currently it’s been revealed that the Trump campaign recently bought up 8, 500 copies of his new book, ‘Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again’ at the tune of $55,000. Now that’s great to buy up your own books to artificially increase sales, but use your own money; Trump used campaign donation money and that is illegal according to a ‘Federal Election Commission’ filing.

Speaking of donor money, Trump has jacked up the price of using his office and is having donors pay for it.

Trump has unjustly accused both Hillary and Bernie for inciting violence by sending loads of unruly protesters to his campaign stumps. As far as violence goes, Trump and the people he surrounds himself and his campaign with, at his speeches and on tweets attests to his very own brand of inciting violence.

On numerous occasions Trump gave the OK and instructions for his supporters to beat up protesters at his rallies. In referring to Michael Bloomberg during his DNC speech, at a Davenport, Iowa rally, Trump said, “I wanted to hit a couple of those speakers so hard. I was gonna hit one guy in particular, a very little guy. I was gonna hit this guy so hard his head would spin, he wouldn’t know what the hell happened.” Of course all bullies pick on the “little guy.”

Why, the Don even stands behind his veterans’ adviser, Al Baldasaro’s bold statement to violence, who broadcasted that Hillary should be put in front of a firing squad and shot. After Baldasaro’s wishes were aired, Trump gave an interview to New Hampshire’s NH1 News analyst, Paul Steinhauser. After being asked what his reaction was to Baldasaro’s remarks, Trump claimed he knew nothing about his words, but instead of professing if the allegations were true, he would punish Baldasaro in some form, Trump merely stated, “Well, I didn’t know that but I will tell you he’s a very fine person. We’re incredibly grateful for his support, but we don’t agree with his comments.” At first, he wasn’t aware of Baldasaro’s comments, then acknowledges them as if he was aware of them, but praises him anyway while stating he (we) don’t agree. For sure a total contrast in principles I’d say.

Trump portrays himself as tough and to make his toughness persona stick, rarely smiles, instead, wearing a constant frown of aggrandized seriousness. He always portrays Hillary as weak and timid. On that thought, once viewing the quick video below comparing the two in their responses to a perceived threat, judge for yourself of who displays more stolid valor.

Trump is a pansy. He literally flipped his wig. Yepper sports fan, he wigged out when the protester charged his podium. On the other hand, Hillary remained calm wearing a smile the whole time.    

Trump’s lone protester was Thomas DiMassimo, an ardent Christian anti-racist protester. He claims, before he was intercepted by secret service agents, was that he only wanted to take the microphone from Trump and preach about the ills of racism. Apparently that is backed up for he led an anti-racist protest on April, 2015, is an ardent supporter of ‘Black Lives Matter’ and once burned a confederate flag. Trump later, without any merit, claims DiMassimo works for ISIS.

Hillary was charged by a group of animal rights protesters. As she said in the video, if they want to complain about animal rights they ought to go after Trump and his sons and for good reason too. For ya see, the Trump boys are avid big game hunters.

Greenmail or greenmailing is a neologism word derived from a word it has strong relations to. That word is blackmail. Greenmailing is purchasing a majority share of a public corporation to challenge its executives in a corporate takeover with full intentions that the officers will be forced to buy back the shares at a premium. Thus removing the greenmailer threat which returns the shares back to the firm, but at such a lucrative price the greenmailer makes off with hundreds of millions more than what he/she paid for in the original share price purchase.

Trump has conducted greenmail. Yes it’s legal, but highly unethical, ya know just like the EpiPen pharmaceutical, ‘Mylan’ and Martin Shkreli who bought the rights to sell the drug, Daraprim which treats parasitic infections and the nervous system from HIV. Both Mylan and Shkreli jacked up their prices 500% and 5,000% respectively, significantly affecting the poor and afflicted in obtaining the life sustaining prescriptions.

Change in life overall is a good thing although most folk are hesitant for it to occur. The reason being is that we’re set in our ways; more comfortable with a routine format, for it’s what we know. But change just for the sake of change can be disastrous. Donald Trump fits that description of change to a tee. Besides, Hillary, who no one speaks of in this context, fits the scenario of change in American politics far better than just another grumpy old white male. After all, if elected she will be the first female U.S. president. That’s change I feel is long overdue. It is history making.

Of course as far as gibberish goes Trump is the equivalent Sara Palin male. Here is an actual excerpt from one of his South Carolina speeches. See if you can decipher for I really can’t.

Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you're a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it's true!—but when you're a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that's why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went
there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we're a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it's not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what's going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what's going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it's four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don't, they haven't figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it's gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.”

What does all this dribble actually mean? Is this coded message for what it boils down to in his token phrase, Make America Great Again?

Reap the Sown:
Former Republican senator, Jack Kemp once said something like this, “People don’t care what you know until they know that you care.”

That Kemp phrase might have been true once upon a time in the Republican Party an era ago, but today it is exempt. The foot soldier Republican (and call them what you will: Tea Party, right-wing, old white men, nationalist) don’t care much for the facts; they simply want their biases patted. The Republican Party is most definitely not fighting for their interests; only for their votes just like Trump is now attempting with African Americans.

I call this phenomenon the ‘equivalency shortage’ in that there is no valence in equality; it’s exclusive. The average Republican who has been hurting just as much as anyone else in the middleclass or lower from Republican economic and social policies, don’t care; they simply want to hear about scapegoats to blame their self-inflicted dilemmas on. The GOP politician gladly will serve them that tray. There is no equal valence here, just a judgmental bias to paint blame on and thwart others they deem as not a true American or patriot. Thought of inclusivity is drowned out by exclusive messaging in errantly defining who the real American is.

It doesn’t matter that there are untold minorities and those that worship another religion that have died fighting and serving this country and are stellar citizens, if they aren’t white Christian, then, in their minds how can they be a true patriot of this nation.

The GOP has offered up a barrage of scapegoats in serving up the poor, minorities, Latino immigrants, hurting refugees, non-Christians and oh yes, liberals as fodder for their voters’ angst. It is these groups’ fault for the way you’re hurting in America now. Never mind that the GOP caters only to the rich, get rid of these groups and you’ll make America great again where you can prosper under the 1% wealthiest authoritarian rule.

On why middleclass and poor whites continually vote against their interests in pulling the polling booth’s ‘R’ lever, I would suggest reading an excellent ‘Truthout’ article by Arlie Russell Hochschild. Click here to read.

At any time of national crisis, values are tested. That is when American values should shine at its brightest. Unfortunately fear mongering is currently dimming that brightness. With the political fodder of Benghazi, Republicans took hold to gain political brownie points. Instead of aiding in bringing the nation together, they chose a divisive path, simply to gain political clout.

For sure, it is sad that four Americans needlessly died and questions needed answering, but the GOP’s ploy wasn’t to seek out better opportunities to learn from, they went down the path of accusations and witch hunts. But where was the GOPs outpouring of 54 folks being killed from 13 terrorists embassy attacks under their rule during the Republican administration of the W. Bush/Cheney years? That is not even including 9/11. Democrats didn’t use that as political capital, no they helped lead the nation responding as a whole to seek out the perpetrators and begin the healing.

I grew up in a West Texas small town, where if anyone (and I do mean anyone) needed a helping hand you had better be the first to offer with no questions asked. Apparently, lifting up one another for the greater good is no longer in fashion under Republican thinking.
The Trumpettes: Eric, Don Jr & Don Sr
Trump is literally and figuratively a symbol of periorbital whiteness. His racist and biased overtones attract the right-wing. Anyone that attempts to say Trump will win the Black and Latino vote are delusional, but for Trump and his campaign to say it, is downright obnoxious.

Trump’s whole foreign policy is to build an unreal virtual wall to keep foreigners out. His whole campaign is centered wholly around complaints of illegal immigrants when he himself has broken immigration laws.

In Iowa this past Saturday at a stump speech, Trump reaffirmed his commitment to crack the whip on foreigners in the U.S. who overstay their visit visas. He also stated, “When any American citizen loses their job to an illegal immigrant, the rights of that American citizen have been violated.”

Of course he doesn’t mention his New York modeling agency, ‘Trump Model Management’ profiting by hiring foreign models with tourist visas cheaper than they would have in hiring home grown models. These noncitizen models were not permitted to work here. Financial and immigration records bear this out and are in clear violation of existing immigration laws. With an existing lawsuit, Trump could be fined in court $16,000 for each foreigner he illegally hired.

This flies past the Republican radar, for to them, pretty skinny models as illegal immigrants is one thing as opposed to brown skinned family immigrants as totally being perceived as another matter.

The whole point to bringing all this up is that Trump is not an original; he’s not change from the Republican, RHINO, or conservative policies, for he is directly from the GOP mold. This created Republican Trumpenstein, via a loud megaphone simply has brought out into the great wide open divide all undercover Republican policies that have been stewing for decades.

Republicans are on average biased and fueled by fear mongering, false conspiracies and rhetorical myths. Trumpenstein has emerged exposing the Republican doctrine of divide and conquer.

Post-era Trump, to expose the GOP, ya had to be a fly on the wall of their concealed room during private and secretive Republican conversations. Today, all ya have to do is go to a Trump rally.  

Republicans are wholly to blame for the Trumpatosis that is in a cancerous way spreading throughout the nation. This division, for sure Republicans will blame on liberals, but it was Lee Atwater decades ago during the Reagan and HW Bush years that kick started the rifting of a nation. On his dying bed, Atwater so admitted to this and apologized for his ineptitude to country. But the spread had already taken hold. The torch was passed on to Newt Gingrich spreading divisive unethical policies that then even some Republican congressmen couldn’t tolerate and he was forced to resign. Tom DeLay then took up the torch in the divisiveness mantle actually referring to Democrats as the enemy.

Now, divisiveness is so widespread within the Republican fold it is par for course. How the GOP for years have tried to demean Hillary Clinton has been so abrasive, but no matter in every allegation tossed at her, Clinton has been vindicated.

The constant roar of Republican subliminal and loudspeaker messages of “lying Hillary...distrustful Hillary” has been charged by Republican bogusness to the point that most Americans feel she actually is a pathological liar and untrustworthy. It is flatly shameful to try and destroy someone like that with conspiracies of their own lies.

Once Obama was elected, but before he was even sworn into office, Senator Mitch McConnell and his cast made a pact to never agree with anything Obama would want no matter if it would aid the nation if they did agree with him or harm the nation when they didn’t. Then they blame the divisiveness squarely on President Obama’s shoulders.   

Why even right now, Republican Trey ‘Double Standard’ Gowdy is opening up yet another ceaseless hearing with no information to allude to of Clinton’s e-mails on whether she perjured congress or not over the e-mails. It’s funny though that they totally ignore the millions of deleted e-mails conducted by the W. Bush/Cheney administration when officials used a gwb.43.com RNC private server. Why even Gowdy himself won’t acknowledge whether he has or hasn’t used his private domain treygowdy.com for congressional tasks. It’s supposed to be used only for campaign work. Gowdy won’t even elaborate on this personal server whether it is secured or not.

If you don’t think hate and racism are rooted deep in Republican politics, think again. In Trump’s book ‘The Art of the Deal’ Trump actually brags about punching out a second grade teacher and nationalist Republicans applaud that behavior.

As far as the street Republican goes, there are innumerable examples, but this one is of ex-cop, Jim Stachowiak, a nationalist Republican who of course claims he’s a ‘proud patriot’ urging other ‘proud patriots’ to shoot dead ‘Black Lives Matters’ supporters.

We’ve already spoken of Trump’s Al Baldasaro expressing Hillary should be put in front of a firing squad and shot, but there is also a West Virginia Republican lawmaker, Michael Folk that has jumped onto that bandwagon insisting that “Hillary be hung on the Washington Mall” for all to see.

Maine’s Republican governor, Paul LePage ridiculously states that people of color are over 90% of America’s drug dealers and feels that “people of color are the enemies and should be shot.” A Democrat legislature criticized him for the comment, in which LePage left a message on his phone expressing, “This is Gov. Paul Richard LePage. I would like to talk to you about your comments about my being a racist, you c**ksucker. I want to talk to you. I want you to prove that I’m a racist. I’ve spent my life helping black people and you little son of a bitch, socialist c**ksucker. You… I need you to… just friggin’. I want you to record this and make it public because I am after you.”

In Texas, the Republican chairman of Travis County, Robert Morrow, to prove how he disdains political correctness, left this tweet below for all to read.
