SPACE FORCE!!! SPACE FORCE!!!!! SPACE FORCE!!!!

It’s just the latest shiny object this grifter dangled in front of the telescreens to dazzle and confuse us and change the conversation from the criminal trial of his former campaign manager, the tell-all sexy stuff Omarosa is teasing, the tightening noose of the Mueller investigation, and the pressure to reunite the hundreds of immigrant children still separated from their parents. 

There is absolutely zero chance this or any Congress is going to authorize 8 billion for this redundant vanity trip.  It’s bad enough the taxpayers are funding his constant golf vacations.  Devin Nunes and his other minions are being exposed for the con artists they are, who’s going to put this drek up for a vote?  Not Paul Ryan.  Hey Trump-o.  Do your fellow Republicans a favor and stop with the bullshit promises – the wall, space force -you are just causing them endless trouble on the campaign trail. 

On the other hand, never mind.  Keep it up.  SPACE FORCE!!!! 

572 children are still wondering why their parents disappeared, those who are above toddler age.  And their parents are faced with the gut-wrenching panic of not knowing when or if they’ll ever see their children again.  This deliberately cruel zero tolerance family torture policy is the most sinful treatment of our fellow human beings since slavery.  And these people claim to be Christians.  Who would Jesus deport?

Let me ask a simple question:  If a woman came to your door in a panic, with a baby, bleeding, saying she was beaten and gang raped and had no place to go, what would you do?  Would you tell her to go back to her own country?  Would you ask her what her citizenship status was?

Historians will not remember this most recent stain on American history with even a whiff of sympathy.  And the Republicans in Congress who have turned a blind eye while this monstrous policy was implemented, they are just as complicit in this heinous act as Trump, Sessions, Kelly, and Nielsen.  Their parents, and likely immigrant grandparents, would be so ashamed at what these cretins are doing to the tiniest among us.  Mot only are they corrupt, they’re mean, too.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan had enough yesterday.  He threatened to hold Sessions in contempt of court yesterday when he discovered that am asylum-seeking mother and and her child whose appeal was ongoing was at that moment on a plane back to El Salvador.   Sullivan ordered them returned immediately and said any delay in bringing them back would be intolerable and that Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen should argue why they shouldn’t be held in contempt of court if they failed to comply.

“This is pretty outrageous,” Sullivan told U.S. attorneys, according to The Washington Post. “That someone seeking justice in U.S. court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?

“I’m not happy about this at all,” he said. “This is not acceptable.”

A Justice Department spokesperson declined to comment

That was just yesterday.  And you’d think that, like Ivanka, that would be the low point.  And you would be wrong.

Now Trump wants to deny citizenship and green cards to immigrants who have signed up for food stamps or Obamacare, or accepted public assistance for their American children.  And they want to remove domestic violence and gang targeting as valid reasons to seek asylum.  What the fuck is that about? 

Okay, you hate brown people.  We get it, truly, we do.  Tweet after ugly tweet and speech after speech to ignite your racist base, repeated and amplified by the bile-spewing bigots Hannity, Ingraham et al on the Fox “News” propaganda machine.  The nonstop racist attacks on President Obama, suggesting that he wasn’t an American.  The Muslim ban.  The shithole countries.  All Haitians have AIDS.  The “Very Fine People” in White Nationalist movements who literally murder a counter protester with a car. The Arpaio pardon.  The Pocahontas slur at Elizabeth Warren (in front of Navajo code talkers).  Calling Maxine Waters Low IQ.  LeBron too. 

Don’t you miss having a President you can be proud of?  Who speaks of the hope and promise of America as the land of the free instead of this endless stream of tweets full of fear, hatred, and insults?

    You may have seen the touching clip from the 38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors in 2015 featuring Aretha Franklin singing (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, a Carole King song, that brought the Obamas to tears and Ms. King nearly jumping from her seat in respect for her artistry.
    A statement from Obama read- “Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it in every shade- our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard won respect. May the queen of soul rest in eternal peace.”
    President Trump said, “She worked for me on numerous occasions.” I doubt that claim from the one who invited Ted Nugent, Kid Rock and Sarah Palin to the White House. Wow… so sick.

    Lil’ Donny Dotard’s military parade is canceled/postponed. http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/la-na-pol-pentagon-military-parade-20180817-story.html# Don’t be so sad Lil Donny. Since the (unnecessary and ridiculous) parade won’t be happening, that will give you even MORE time to Tweet your mind numbingly stupid comments and watch Fox & Friends. I had no problem with the parade as long as the troops would be marching/stomping on his bloated orange ass.

    Time has come to once again break out the long-retired “Archie Award”, an honor bestowed on someone who proves he or she is even more stupid than them self; an art perfected years ago by the dumbass troll, Arch, who fought against and struggled with the concept of truth, much to the amusement of Chucky and myself.

    Today’s winner and recipient of this special award goes to Trump’s attack monkey, Rudy Giuliani, for telling NBC’s Chuck Todd, “Truth isn’t truth.” Congrats Rudy. You own this one!

    This is from euronews.com: “The exodus of migrants from Venezuela is building toward a “crisis moment” comparable to events involving refugees in the Mediterranean. That’s according to the United Nations migration agency It comes as desperate Venezuelan migrants breathed a sigh of relief as they reached Peru’s border before the tightened controls came into effect on Saturday, preventing those not carrying passports from entering.

    Ricardo Morales, is 24 and has a passport and he says, “Part of me feels calm, but I’m also worried about my fellow Venezuelans, with this problem regarding the passports. In our country it’s really hard to get a passport.”

    Tens of thousands of Venezuelans are fleeing to many countries in overwhelming numbers, because of the high inflation nearly reaching 1 million percent – creating chronic food and medicine shortages.

    Venezuela’s information minister says he thinks people will return but with a worthless currency and no plan for economic reform, it seems hard to think people will go back any time soon.” How the fuck can a country have 1 million percent inflation?! I can’t even wrap my mind around that!

    Venezuela is a dangerous place. Thairo Estrada, a promising New York Yankee prospect, visited his hometown of Bejuma this past January. He was at a restaurant counter with his wife, when he was approached by two teenage boys. They demanded money or a cellphone. When Thairo could produce neither he got shot in the hip. He survived the bullet wound, but what a terrible setback to the career of a 21-year old athlete.
