The Silencing Of The Clowns

By The Reverend Published: July 27, 2015

Though corporate media, for the most part, just doesn't see it...or can't see it....or depend on a paycheck not to see it.....it is still a fact that today's Republican Party has...well....lost it's collective mind.

While the Huckabee Clown is convinced that Obama's multi-nation deal to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon will, instead, "take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven" .....Clown Cruz has determined that the real enemy is "flat out liar" Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Which I found surprising, not because Cruz isn't certifiable, he is....but because Clown Cruz dared to make a ....clown spectacle of himself....over such an insignificant issue like the Export-Import Bank and against his own Senate Majority Leader.

If those two symptoms of mental illness are not convincing enough.....let's take a look at what the Texas Cowboy Clown said when asked about the gun-slaughter of U.S. military recruiters in another GOP Clown Governor's state, Louisiana......

"I will suggest to you that these concepts of gun-free zones are a bad idea," Perry said. "I think that you allow the citizens of this country, who have appropriately trained, appropriately backgrounded, know how to handle and use firearms, to carry them. I believe that, with all my heart, that if you have the citizens who are well trained, and particularly in these places that are considered to be gun-free zones, that we can stop that type of activity, or stop it before there's as many people that are impacted as what we saw in Lafayette.".

The Odd Focus On "Unfavorables"

By The Reverend Published: July 27, 2015

Nine days ago, Very Smart political insiders and pundits, after regaining consciousness from passing out over Donald Trump's relatively-accurate words about John McCain, demonstrated why their Great Depths of Wisdom should be deferred to on matters of political elections.

Here are a few brilliant insights from the Very Smart immediately after Trump's comments on McCain's hero status.

Political scientist John Sides.....

"The short story is that the news attention to Trump is what's driving his poll numbers," Sides explained. "But his poll numbers will likely decline after strong criticism from Republicans and accompanying scrutiny from the news media."

The Iran Deal & Biblical Prophesy

By The Reverend Published: July 26, 2015

Evangelical Christians account for approximately 23% of all Republican votes. One of the reasons why elected Republicans have been working so hard to destroy the Obama administration's nuclear deal with Iran is to placate that 23%.

Although today's nation of Israel possesses an estimated 200 nuclear warheads, propagandists in right wing media have convinced evangelical Christians that Obama's nuclear deal to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb will actually guarantee that Iran obtains nuclear weapons and will wipe out Israel when they do.

Evangelicals have been taught to believe that when the nation-state of Israel was created in 1948......it was the fulfillment of "end times" biblical prophecy. Here's Pat Robertson.....

....evangelical Christians support Israel because we believe that the words of Moses and the ancient prophets of Israel were inspired by God. We believe that the emergence of a Jewish state in the land promised by God to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob was ordained by God.

Desperate Clownishness

By The Reverend Published: July 25, 2015

Americans may disagree with the policy decisions of President Obama. They may disagree with his executive orders, his willingness to engage with Iran, his namesake Obamacare, or his position on universal background checks for all gun purchases. I am an unrepentant liberal....and I disagree with Obama on several major policy issues.

But the guy is a class act....I can't deny it. In my opinion, Obama has restored some dignity to the office following what I still consider to be the worst 8 years of an American presidency.

Stay with me here.

In the old days of my youth, when there were only 4 teevee stations.....my god the deprivation.....presidents could only be seen and heard by watching one of those 4 teevee channels. On nightly newscasts, for example, or when the president addressed the entire nation directly. Before the early 80's, the words...."we interrupt your scheduled programming to bring you a special address".....actually seemed important.

Oxygen-Deprived Media Saved By NY Times Hit Piece

By The Reverend Published: July 24, 2015

Because Donald Trump has sucked up all the oxygen in all the media rooms of America, it became necessary today for the hopelessly "liberal" NY Times to pump new oxygen into all those same media rooms. It's the strangest damn thing.

The same hopelessly "liberal", "in the tank for Hillary" NY Times wanted to divert other media's focus away from The Donald.....and so they published yet another garbage-bag full of innuendo and half-facts like they did several months ago when the Times actually paid a right wing political hitman for....a garbage bag full of innuendo and partial facts over Hillary's e-mails and Bill's charitable foundation.

Now, you can read the Times hit piece at your convenience. But let me assure you, they don't have anything....the Times just wanted to change the subject away from Trumpnado. And immediately.....the Times found their efforts successful.

Case study. Ron Fournier of the National Journal. In a subtle-headline, "Clinton's Conspiracy of Secrecy Worthy of Criminal Probe", with the juvenile sub-headline, "Maybe the dog ate her email", Fournier starts off by reposting the first paragraph of the NY Times hit piece....

Future Geezers Be Warned

By The Reverend Published: July 24, 2015

What the People want.....

A Kaiser family Foundation polling report released on July 17, 2015, (found that) 89 percent of Americans want to leave Medicare as it is, or they want to increase funding for Medicare.

What W's younger brother wants for the People....

"...we need to make sure we fulfill the commitment to people that have already received the benefits, that are receiving the benefits. But then we need to figure out a way to phase out this program for others and move to a new system that allows them to have something – because they’re not going to have anything. And that argument I think is going to be a winning argument if we take it directly to the people."

3PM Eastern.....Bring Your Own Lawn Chairs

By The Reverend Published: July 23, 2015

Republican Party establishment figures are deathly afraid of Donald Trump's bid for the GOP Clown nomination. This Politico piece today is the proof. Here's a sample....

Trump will lose, and Trump supporters will wake up with a combination I call “herpes and a hangover.” They may have had fun the night before, but they’ll regret the hangover for a day. However, if Trump’s games in this campaign lead to the election of Hillary Clinton, they’ll regret the herpes a lot longer.

It goes on like that. It's like an establishment GOP warning flare being shot across the political sky, a thinly veiled bit of pre-emptive guilt manipulation directed at Trump supporters...threatening those supporters that when they wake up with the "herpes" of a Hillary presidency...they'll regret ever rallying behind The Donald.

They're worried.

"What They Want Is Vengeance"

By The Reverend Published: July 22, 2015

So, Huckleberry Graham...the ninny....thought it would be a good idea to call Donald Trump a "jackass" while telling a CNN audience that " I am really pissed" about what Trump said about Huckleberry's "amigo" buddy John McCain.

Trump, speaking in Huck's home state yesterday, read Graham's cell phone number aloud to his audience, telling the audience to "give it a try."

There's an unwritten rule in the world of political campaigning. That rule is...never let a rival's negative comments about you stand without an immediate response. Trump plays by that rule. McCain thought it would be cute to say that Trump had "fired up the crazies" in his home state of Arizona. Trump responded immediately, going after McCain's war hero reputation and calling McGrampy a "dummy." Huckleberry brought his faux-rage over Trump's McCain-comments to CNN, "bravely" calling Trump a jackass. Trump immediately released the Huckleberry's cell phone number.

It is those rapid-fire haymaker-responses to his fellow Clowns' public criticisms of him that is most responsible, I think, for Donald Trump's current frontrunner status. Yes, hating on Latinos has also helped.

Crushing GOP Jewels

By The Reverend Published: July 21, 2015

The fun continues....

Even with the drop in support on the final night of the survey, Trump was the favorite of 24 percent of registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. That is the highest percentage and biggest lead recorded by any GOP candidate this year in Post-ABC News polls and marks a sixfold increase in his support since late May, shortly before he formally joined the race.

Take note of that "biggest lead" part. In this latest snapshot poll Trump comes in at 24%, Walker at 13% and Jeb! at 12%.

Last night and again this morning all the Very Intelligent People are informing me that Trump's comments about McCain's heroic status mark the beginning of The Donald's demise. They claim, as, unbelievably, did the Des Moines Register, that Trump's rather mild-mannered rib-poking of McCain disqualifies the billionaire....and he should leave the GOP primary race. Just wait, these wishful-thinkers say, until the next poll comes out....you'll see....Republicans and conservatives simply will not have any truck with a candidate who even thinks about saying anything critical of Hero John.

Sanctimonious Clowns

By The Reverend Published: July 20, 2015

Don't ask me why, but tomorrow John Kasich is planning on making his official announcement that, he too, will ride the GOP Clown Candidate Bus. There is only one more currently undeclared Clown who may yet announce, former Virginia GOP Governor Jim Gilmore, who says he's hitching a ride sometime in August.

Politico has an article up this morning on John Kasich's temper which is worth a read. Not only does LittleJohn have a reputation for being, well, a bit of a weirdo.....he has a long history of anger-management problems.

Sen. John McCain once said of Kasich: “He has a hair-trigger temper.”
