"The great leader" wants a drug czar and a military parade.

    Image result for kellyanne conway images  We live in a world where Kellyanne Conway has been named as the person to stop America's opioid crisis. These are strange times.

Someone should tell the president that you can't just lie away a real crisis such as this and pretend it doesn't exist. Ms. Conway, like her boss, is a habitual liar. But beyond the lying, she is clearly out of her league as recent press reports show.

"White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has taken control of the opioids agenda, quietly freezing out drug policy professionals and relying instead on political staff to address a lethal crisis claiming about 175 lives a day. The main response so far has been to call for a border wall and to promise a "just say no” campaign.
The Office of National Drug Control Policy has been without a permanent director since the president's first nominee for that position, Pennsylvania congressman Tom Marino, withdrew from consideration in light of history of zealous advocacy for legislation friendly to narcotics manufacturers. As a result, the ONDCP was briefly led by a 24-year-old former campaign staffer who lied on his résumé about the length of time he served as vice president of his college fraternity—a distinction that makes him the least-qualified person to hold a White House job who did not marry one of the president's children.

Conway, for some reason, has stepped into this void, steering the administration's opioid response strategy with the help of a "skeleton crew" of political appointees who possess no relevant experience." 

The irony of all this is that the people most affected by this particular drug problem are your typical trump voters. If the administration is treating the problem that affects them most in such a way, how do you think that they will treat the rest of us with problems that are unique to our communities? 

And finally, this scary bit of news: 

Image result for russian military parade"President Donald Trump has asked for a military parade and the Pentagon is reviewing potential dates, Pentagon spokesman Charlie Summers said Tuesday.

The spokesman described the planning process as being in its "infancy."

In response to the news, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that Trump had asked the Defense Department to "explore" the idea.

"President Trump is incredibly supportive of America's great servicemembers who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe. He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation," Sanders said.

    The Washington Post first reported Trump told top Pentagon brass last month he wants a military parade.

    "The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France," a military official told the paper. "This is being worked at the highest levels of the military."

    Trump's meeting with senior military leaders last month included Vice President Mike Pence, White House chief of staff John Kelly, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Joseph Dunford.

    Trump was French President Emmanuel Macron's guest on Bastille Day last year, and later called the French military parade he witnessed "one of the greatest parades" he had ever seen.
    He said last September in a conversation with Macron that when he came back from France he wanted a military parade on the Fourth of July in Washington.

    Trump's call for a military parade might be hitting a few snags. The Post said shipping tanks and military hardware into Washington could cost millions of dollars, and that military officials said they were unsure how to pay for it.

    After the Gulf War in 1991, the US put on a victory celebration replete with servicemembers and military gear.

    Outside of France, authoritarian nations the world over have made massive displays of military power a mainstay of their public celebrations." [Source]
     
    Do you know which other countries have large military parades?  Think Russia, North Korea and China.

    Yeah, well, we also live in a world where Betsy DeVos is secretary of education, Rick "Oops" Perry heads the Department of Energy (one of the departments he had said he wanted to eliminate because, according to him, it was useless), a guy who hates the environment now runs the EPA, and the Small Business Administration is run by the pro wrestling lady.

    Oh, and Jared Kushner is going to bring peace to Israel-Palestine. Good luck with that.

    All of this is a bad fucking joke, but that joke is on all of us. We are living in the movie "Idiocracy."

    "President Donald Trump has asked for a military parade and the Pentagon is reviewing potential dates, Pentagon spokesman Charlie Summers said Tuesday."

    Merci beaucoup, Monsieur Macron. I'd say you created a monster with the spectacle you put on to impress Le Pompous American Moron when he came to visit, but I must admit, Trump was already a monster. You just made him into an even bigger one.

    "The spokesman described the planning process as being in its "infancy.""

    And our president, also in his infancy, mentally speaking.

    OK, two things about the parade:
    First, what does he plan on doing with the tanks? Those tracks will tear the shit out of the roads, so maybe haul them on trucks? Or perhaps he could just lay down in the road and protect it with his fat, white, ass.
    And second, if his "freedom fries" base possessed a working memory, or were not reprogrammable meatbags, their heads would explode about him praising a French parade.
    But they don't, and they are, so sorry about that, citizens who use the roads in DC, I hope you have a better maintenance fund than the rest of us.

    And the opioid situation is a perfect example of why you never want to trust Republicans with your life.
    A wall won't keep Purdue Pharma out; they're already in.
    And Fentanyl is a motherfucker. It's a tricky thing, Fentanyl. It's a widely used and effective pain killer for extreme pain, and is used in anesthesia for surgery, but it has a working dose measured in micrograms, like LSD, but unlike LSD, if you fuck up the dose a little, it straight up kills you.
    It is powerful enough to be profitable as black market "heroin" when cut so heavily that the doses match, but most heroin dealers aren't adept enough in lab procedure to evenly mix the drug and the cut on a dose by dose level. So what happens is pockets of more concentrated Fentanyl, which when injected, kill the user who injects them.
    I never wanted any opioids myself, but I have lost a couple of friends to Fentanyl, which is why I read about it enough to know that Kellyanne or Jared are not going to understand it enough to do anything about it.
    Now, usually, Republicans just say "good enough for them" about drug users who die, but this time it's taking out Republican Fergus fans by the dozen every day.
    So if you little MAGA fans want to really know how much he or his administration care about you, your family, or whether you live or die, there's your answer.

    "because leader Pelosi has dementia....."

    During an extended speech on the House floor Wednesday morning, where she read a long list of profiles of DACA recipients, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was reminded of her own grandson.

    NANCY PELOSI: I'm reminded of my own grandson. He is Irish, English, whatever, whatever, and Italian-American, he is a mix. But he looks more the other [Italian] side of the family, shall we say.

    And when he had his sixth birthday... he had a very close friend whose name is Antonio, he's from Guatemala. And he has beautiful tan skinned, beautiful brown eyes, and this was a proud day for me, because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said did you make a wish?

    He said yes, he made a wish. What is your wish? I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.


    This hag has so imbued her grandson with self-hate, he wishes he were a Mestizo.

    Pelosi is a special kind of awful.

    "Universities that have entire departments for black and Hispanic nationalists can't bear to have a white nationalist give a 45 minute speech on campus."

    In this case you have to wonder why they booked the room as a church instead under their own name. Secondly Black and Latino departments are there to educate students in areas that have been historically ignored while white supremacist organizations are there to diminish other groups and push an ideology. One wants to be inclusive one wants to be exclusive, apples and oranges.

    "In this case you have to wonder why they booked the room as a church instead under their own name."

    Because, as was shown, universities censor white nationalist speech.

    "Black and Latino departments are there to educate students in areas that have been historically ignored"

    Maybe, but mostly they seem to focus on the evils of white society while often crossing into pushing supremacist themes themselves.

    "while white supremacist organizations are there to diminish other groups and push an ideology"

    First, there are no explicitly white organizations allowed on American campuses. Ssecondly, there is a huge difference between white nationalism, which asserts that whites have an equal right to preserve their culture and advance their interests, and white supremecism, which asserts unequal privilege for whites.

    There are very few white supremacists in America. Leftists conflate white nationalists with white supremacists to discredit the former. Apples and oranges.

    "One wants to be inclusive one wants to be exclusive, apples and oranges."

    Who is it exactly that is being excluded here?

    I have trouble making my way through these complicated hate threads with so many contributors.

    But I can say a super-duper FUCK YOU to commenter, "democrats hate white people."

    People from Mexico and the Southwest corners of the United States, from New Mexico and Colorado to Baja California and the Sonora State are some of the most moral and friendly people that I have ever dealt with. Many are also natural musicians who play the guitar, trumpet or violin better than most anyone else that I know. They can sing and harmonize like angels in a choir. I have loved just about each and every one of them that I have ever met. They tend to be very happy, hard-working and family-oriented people. They often fall in love with me too because I am fortunate enough to have learned their language at a very young age. I have practiced speaking it, honing my Spanish skills almost every day that I have lived since I was twenty years old. I got my first job in my field at Kaypro Computers the summer of 1987 thanks to my ability to speak Spanish. I was the point man for Mexico and South America. I talked to a lot of technicians in Mexico, but when I talked to the computer engineers in Venezuela, we usually ended up conversing in English.

    Believe me, today some thirty years later, bilingual and educated is no big deal. It's about 50% of everybody.

    What I wish to say is I do not want to hear anybody denigrating this proud race of peoples. Do we have to use the antiquated term, "Mestizo?" If Nancy Pelosi's grandson admires his friend of Guatemalan heritage and she thinks that his sentiments are worthy to share... Then so be it. Nothing tires me faster than right-wing hatred of Nancy Pelosi. She was the first female speaker of the house. Nuff said.

    Guatemalan-Americans are some of my favorite people. Honest and trustworthy.

    More importantly, Mexican women are among the most wickedly beautiful females on earth. We are talking seriously pretty. To the point that it almost hurts to look at anyone that beautiful without crying.

    So take your racist bullshit and pack it up your ass, troll.

    A person under arrest cannot legally consent to sex.  This is for the protection of the person under arrest.

    Strange, I don't recall "mike" ever complaining about the violation of cop Daniel Holtzclaw's rights when charges made by women who first claimed they were assaulted by a black man were allowed against him in court despite the lack of any physical evidence in support.  It's almost like he thinks that whites can do no right, and blacks can do no wrong.

    > The 'guess the race" game would be fun if I didn't know your agenda.

    I would like to stop black crimes against white people.  Let black cops police black people in black countries.  If black people don't want to be policed by white cops, black countries await them.  Await you.

    Flynn has applied for the charges against him to be thrown out because the evidence is tainted, including revelations that the FBI's forms 302 (interrogation reports), which were used to support charges that he lied, were altered and are thus not trustworthy.  This plea is almost certain to be granted if the entire Mueller fishing expedition isn't called off first due to the FISA violations.
