Deportation Or 2nd Class Status....GOP Goal Is The Same

By The Reverend Published: July 31, 2015

Last go around, the plan was "self-deportation." That was Mitt Romney's solution to what is known as America's "illegals" problem.

The idea arose from a recognition by (restrictionist and conservative) groups that no administration was going to conduct mass roundups to deport an estimated 11 million immigrants now living in the United States. Instead, the idea is to make it so difficult for illegal immigrants to live in this country — by denying them work, driver’s licenses and any public benefits and by stepping up enforcement — that they will give up and go home.

Fast forward four years and we find the GOP Clown frontrunner, the candidate who now leads both Jeb! and Boy Marco in their home state of Florida, rejecting that "no administration was going to conduct mass roundups" thing....

Trump said Wednesday in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash that as president he would deport all undocumented immigrants and then allow the "good ones" to reenter the country through an "expedited process" and live in the U.S. legally, though not as citizens.

The Report From High Atop Serious Mountain

By The Reverend Published: July 30, 2015

Here is the Wisdom of a man who sits atop the highest peak of Serious Mountain....

The best reason for rejecting the agreement is to rebuke Obama’s long record of aggressive disdain for Congress — recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess, rewriting and circumventing statutes, etc. Obama’s intellectual pedigree runs to Woodrow Wilson, the first presidential disparager of the separation of powers. Like Wilson, Obama ignores the constitutional etiquette of respecting even rivalrous institutions.


You see, George Will, after sending the servants home for the day, sat down to write a Serious column that he alone, cause of that position of his atop Serious Mountain, could write. He would plumb the depths of his Deep Wisdom and tell everyone who couldn't possibly understand, why the Iranian nuclear deal should be defeated in Congress.

Defund Planned Parenthood.....Or Else

By The Reverend Published: July 30, 2015

Rick Perry, Carly Fiorina, Bobby Jindal, Marco Rubio, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Chris Christie and Donald Trump.

Those are the GOP Clown Candidates who will be speaking at Erick Erickson's Redstate Gathering Aug 7-8.

Erick Erickson is a militant evangelical Christian whose rightwing political blog offerings are laced with references to the mythological. Faith-based, he is.

As you are aware, the anti-choice rightwing, those who would return America's females to the pre-Roe days at the first opportunity, are screaming at the top of their lungs over fraudulently edited video-gotchas of Planned Parenthood employees. These screamers are the same folks who ALSO have gotten oh-so-worked up over the ACA's national insurance provision providing contraception......contraception which has been determined, scientifically, to be the best way to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Do your own self-contradictory math.

GOP Reviving Their War On Women

By The Reverend Published: July 29, 2015

They were going to show Americans that they could "govern responsibly".....which I assume meant that there was some question about whether they were capable of actually doing so. But that was the alleged GOP plan after Republicans recaptured all of Congress in the 2014 midterms....

Mitch McConnell just a little over 6 months ago...."What I hope Senate Republicans will present to the country is a conservative right-of-center governing majority, serious people elected in serious times to try to get results."

“I think a majority [of Republicans] recognize that we have to govern responsibly,” said Sen. John McCain.

A congressional majority controlled by the GOP would demonstrate to Americans that elected Republicans were not only "serious people" but also elected representatives in the majority who could "govern responsibly."

Republican Outrage Over Huckabee Remarks Is Total Rubbish

By The Reverend Published: July 28, 2015

I just heard former Bushie, Nicole Wallace, say on MSNBC's Morning GOP Blowjob, yes, it's that lurid, that while she doesn't agree with the language Preacher Clown Huckabee used to describe his take on Obama's Iranian nuclear deal, she sympathizes with the "sentiment" behind the words of the Huckster from Arkansas.

As a refresher, here's Huckabee's "controversial" comments...."This president's foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven."

Mika Brezinski was extremely disturbed and visibly upset today by what the Huck said, calling for him to either apologize or get out of the race. Such a brave Villager, that Mika. Instead, Huckabee went to Fox this morning with this....“I will not apologize and I will not recant.”

However, I wonder where Mike Huckabee came up with the idea that the Obama administration's nuclear deal with Iran, a deal to PREVENT Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, should be described by comparing it to the Holocaust of WW2. I wonder....

Two Democratic Candidates Now Lead All GOP Clowns

By The Reverend Published: July 28, 2015

Here's moderate Republican and former Reagan administration official, Bruce Bartlett, explaining what I've been attempting to explain about Donald Trump's candidacy....

Only Trump can make the GOP sane again—by losing in a landslide to Hillary Clinton.

...many Republican leaders have had deep misgivings about the Tea Party since the beginning, but the short-term benefits were too great to resist. A Trump rout is Republican moderates’ best chance to take back the GOP.

I'll get back to that.

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 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 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 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.
