American carnage.


 There are some experiences and images that you never forget, no matter how hard Father Time tries to erase them from your memory.  

For me it was seeing a horrific car accident as a child, while traveling on a Jamaican highway to the airport with my parents for one of our trips to the United States. I think there were three fatalities, and I could actually see the dead bodies strewn out on the black asphalt in the hot Jamaican sun.

I was reminded of that day while watching Donald trump's performance last night in that train wreck of a debate with Joe Biden. To say he was an embarrassment is an understatement. He embarrassed his family; his party; his country; and his supporters. Well... maybe not all of his supporters, because the fact that some of them still support him tells me that they have no shame. It was sad.

I won't even try to critique it as I would a normal debate, because there was nothing normal about it. If Donald trump's strategy was to make a fool of himself by being the chaos agent last night, it worked. He was all chaos and nothing else. The irony is, of course, that if he had just acted normally and allowed Joe Biden to answer the questions without interrupting like a petulant and fractious five year old, he probably would have scored some debate points. Biden would have no doubt stumbled over some of the answers that he was supposed to give to the moderators questions. Instead, trump kept interrupting and shouting over him, and thus bailing him out from having to answer the questions posed to him by Chris Wallace.

What seemed to have come as a shock to most white folks (and of course no surprise to us black folks who know what we are dealing with trump), was trump, once again, failing to disavow white supremacists when given a chance to do so. He in fact doubled down and told his Proud Boys brown shirt style militia to stand by and wait for further instructions. It was worse than his "good people on both sides" proclamation after Charlottesville, and it has no doubt emboldened those racists who support him even more. 

But wait, as they say on the television game shows: That's not all, folks trump could not even promise to play by the election rules in November, and he once again tried to cast doubt about the American election system by declaring to a shocked nation that he will be cheated by governors and elected officials in states run by democrats.  I won't even get into his low down smear of Biden's family, and him calling out his son as a drug addict. 

The general consensus seems to be that Biden won the debate. But honestly, I watched it, and I couldn't tell you the substance of what was being said and talked about.

Jut like a horrific accident on the highway, all I could see was the carnage before me.

I am hearing rumors that the Commission on Presidential Debates will actually be giving the moderator the power in future to cut off a candidate’s (okay, let’s be real, Trump’s) mike if he misbehaves.

Consequently, I predict Trump will throw a tantrum and boycott the other two debates.

Nothing Trump did last night shocked me. I've know what and who he was since he pushed the Birther movement. But I was surprised that Wallace didn't do more to rein him in.

dinthebeast said...

The revised rules for the other debates will be effective, I'm sure, as Fergus always follows rules...

This was an extension of the 2016 campaign strategy, that is, "make the election so absolutely repellent that no decent person would want to be a part of it" and in that sense, it wasn't as much of a failure as it appeared.

The other debates, should they actually occur, should be moderated by a Black woman with a microphone mute button and a bottle of pepper spray. Fergus advocates the use of pepper spray on protesters who don't immediately follow police instructions, so the minute he fails to follow simple instructions he should get it right in his ugly orange face. And on that thing on his head, because messing that thing up really pisses him off.

Hey, remember back in 2016, when debates involved Trump talking about his cock?

That was a hint that any debate that included him was destined to go off the rails.

The first Times article on Trump's taxes mentioned that he lost major corporate clients after his first "Mexicans are rapists" broadside. Most of Trump's bigoted remarks lose more supporters than they gain, leading me to believe they aren't calculations but speak for the man* himself. He's a bigot, irrational to the bone, whether or not he attracts other bigots to his fan club. If the American process remains intact and he's rejected for another term, we will owe it to his warped personality prevailing over his demagogic skills. That we will have escaped one tyrant by the skin of our teeth should caution us that we may not be so lucky with a another demagogue wannabe, though. As a prescient writer once observed, Trump won't be the last aspiring despot we face. The next candidate may be smarter. *term used advisedly

“Most of Trump's bigoted remarks lose more supporters than they gain, leading me to believe they aren't calculations but speak for the man* himself.”

I don’t think this is true for Trump.

Trump undoubtedly has strongly racist beliefs. But his racist rhetoric and actions have also been very useful to him politically. The hate he spews is both heartfelt AND calculated.

Intentionally appealing to his audience’s racism is the main tool in his tool belt for animating the Republican base. It is one of the few things he knows how to do well — he certainly doesn’t know anything about governmental policy — so racism is the lever he reaches for every time.

Without “Mexicans are rapists,” Trump wouldn’t have broken out of the field of Republican candidates to become the party nominee and take on Hillary Clinton in 2016. After that, defamation of her character, plus loads of voter suppression, carried him the rest of the way to the White House.

From thedailybeast.....

Conservative operatives Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman were charged on Thursday for allegedly orchestrating a series of robocalls aimed at suppressing the vote in the November presidential election, Michigan authorities said.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel filed a slew of charges against Burkman, 54, and Wohl, 22, including conspiracy to commit an election law violation and using a computer to commit the crime of election law. Prosecutors allege the two political operatives were using a robocall system aimed at scaring Detroit voters away from using mail-in voting ballots. The calls, which were made in August, went out to nearly 12,000 Detroit residents.

So the goddamn Republicans in Pennsyltucky are trying their asses off to take control of who gets to get their vote counted in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia with a special select committee in the state legislature that is going to "study" the goddamn election while it is happening.
With subpoena power for election officials and others all designed to hold up the counting of mail in ballots long enough for Fergus to mount a court challenge that they will say allows the state legislature to appoint its own slate of electors and the actual votes be damned.

In neighboring Ohio, Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose said last week that he did not want to risk a similar lawsuit as he announced that he would authorize one drop box for each of the state’s 88 counties. He said the Republican-controlled legislature had not given him the authority to provide more.

Democrats are pressing LaRose to revise his decision, pointing out that it leaves the 864,000 registered voters of Cleveland’s Cuyahoga County, a Democratic stronghold, with the same number of drop boxes as the 8,400 registered voters of Republican Vinton County.

Hospitalized Brad Parscale 'is under investigation for stealing up to $40million from Trump's campaign and $10million from the RNC', as he spirals out of control over White House 'gravy train' ending and mounting debt

I swear to God, this week has been the most epic flameout of any presidency ever. There ain’t nothing going right in Trumpland now. This administration is a complete garbage fire.

Justice statistics:

Males are only 7.6 times as likely to be homicide perps as females.  Blax are 8.2 times as likely to be homicide perps as Whites.

Blax should be removed from the company of anyone and EVERYONE who does not want them.  By force, and by law.  Kick you all back to Africa if nobody wants you.

Hint:  only a few indoctrinated or insane people do.

"Still wondering what the hell Gavin Newsom ever saw in that chick. She’s a wingnut, and apparently an all-around terrible person. I mean, you’d have to be in order to hook up with Don Junior, right?"

What he saw in her was most likely his dick. That's one reason I've always called him Gavin Reptile.
She apparently went around the office showing the women dick pics on her phone and identifying whose dick it was in the pic. A really classy young woman.

So Fergus is hospitalized and undergoing an experimental antibody treatment. It's looking more and more like the rose garden announcement of Amy Coney Barrett as the supreme court nominee was a superspreader event. Close quarters, almost no masks, people hugging and shaking hands, all of the stuff that transmits the virus.

All of this was standard knowledge among the sane people of the country and indeed the world, but the propaganda damaged brains of the goddamn Republicans, as Crack the Sky said in the song "From the Greenhouse" won't believe it until they disappear.

The fucked up part about it is all of the non propaganda addicts who they have wantonly exposed to the goddamn virus who likely won't get experimental treatments or top flight care at Walter Reed.

The staffers, drivers, security details, and all the other regular working folks who now may have the goddamn virus because Fergus and his felons turned the west wing into a petri dish because they were too goddamn obstinately deranged to follow basic instructions for health safety.

With any luck, Stephen Miller has it too.

I just filled my ballots out, and will take them down to the drop box in Oakhurst tomorrow. I have a goddamn Republican congressman, and I had to vote for the weak-tea Democrat running against him, and she'll likely lose, but after all those years of getting to vote for Barbara Lee every other year, it felt kinda good to cast a vote that might actually matter if there are enough of us gentrification refugees out here in the hinterland.

One goddamn Republican was running unopposed, and we as Democrats have to stop letting that happen. We can win if we don't run.

SO NOW WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BELIEVE THAT HE HAS THE CORONA VIRUS???

FAKE NEWS!!!! FAKE NEWS!!! FAKE NEWS!!!!

...AND THAT HIS WIFE HAS IT TOO BUT NOT HIS YOUNG SON?
HELL, HIM AND HIS WIFE HAVEN'T EVEN SHARED A BED IN OVER 10 YEARS.

THIS IS A PUBLICITY STUNT. IN 14 DAYS HE WILL RE-EMERGE AND THEN PRETEND THAT HE EMERGED FROM THE VIRUS UNSCATHED... AND THEN HE WILL GET THE "HERO VOTE" AS WELL AS THE "SYMPATHY VOTE."


..AND HE SHALL LEAD HIS FOLLOWERS TO THEIR DEATHS (LITERALLY AND FIGURATIVELY)...LIKE COWS BEING LED TO SLAUGHTER.

Do your homework. If anyone is familiar with the history of America, they would know that England sent kicked their worst out and sent them to America...(rapists, thieves, smugglers, and swindlers)
aka "white trash."

It's a part of history the U.S. is not willing to own up to.
The United States was not started by aristocracy...but by exactly the OPPOSITE.

"Trash" pretending to be "Class."

and that's the truth about "His- story".

THE HISTORY OF HOW ENGLAND SENT 50,000 CRIMINALS TO AMERICA...yes America and the Caribbean was established by European Criminals .

The British used colonial North America as a penal colony through a system of indentured servitude. Merchants would transport the convicts and auction them off (for example) to plantation owners upon arrival in the colonies. It is estimated that some 50,000 British convicts were sent to colonial America and the majority landed in the Chesapeake Colonies of Maryland and Virginia. Transported convicts represented perhaps one-quarter of all British emigrants during the 18th century.[1] The colony of Georgia, for example, was first founded by James Edward Oglethorpe who originally intended to use prisoners taken largely from debtors' prison, creating a "Debtor's Colony," where the prisoners could learn trades and work off their debts. Even though this largely failed, the idea that the state began as a penal colony has persisted, both in popular history and local lore.[2]

When that avenue closed after the outbreak of American Revolutionary War in 1776, prisons started to overcrowd. Since immediate stopgap measures proved themselves ineffective, in 1785 Britain decided to use parts of what is now known as Australia as penal settlements. So-called First Fleet soon transported first ~800 convicts and ~250 marines to Sydney Cove. Australian penal colonies in late 18th century included Norfolk Island and New South Wales, and in early 19th century also Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) and Moreton Bay (Queensland).

Those that are in power in America are direct descendants of the criminal element that established America.
They became the dominant force through slaughtering, lying, cheating, stealing, swindling. and brainwashing the natives.

They then launched a 400 year campaign to keep their knees on the necks of the blacks, browns and beige people in order to keep themselves in power (even though THEY are the true minorities of the WORLD).

The criminals that founded America elected themselves to government and then set in place a system which has stripped Black men of economic opportunities and forced them to engage in criminal activity to survive.

This is nothing new and it continues today...It is all a carefully constructed conspiracy.
Expecting them to change is like a king being asked to give up his thrown...

They're not going down without a fight and this is what is going on in this country.

The descendants of the European criminal element that founded America are not going down without a fight.

They realize that the power is in WHO runs the government. Hispanics vote, blacks don't.
Hispanics stick together, blacks don't. Hispanics run for government office and get elected. and that is their biggest fear.

Why are the “evil libs” gloating that Trump has COVID, you ask?

It might have something to do with behavior like the following story: Trump’s Justice Department sued (successfully) to block state governments from imposing perfectly reasonable civil liberties restrictions necessary to fight the COVID pandemic.

Good reply, Anonymous.
Also why would anyone consider it evil to have no sympathy for a man responsible of the deaths of at least a hundred-thousand of our fellow Americans? Apparently Trump's Karma caught up with him, or maybe it's God's will?
