Blind To Their Own Wealth

GOP used to have a fucking seizure over the Clintons on the lecture circuit making money. Notice that they're not saying a peep about tRumps selling access to government openly. Even to foreigners.

NEW DELHI (AP) -- Donald Trump Jr. said that any talk of his family profiting from his father's presidency is "nonsense" as he embarked on a trip to India that has raised ethical concerns about using the name of the American president to promote international business ventures.

The eldest son of President Donald Trump, who is in India to meet the promoters and buyers of Trump brand luxury homes in the country, said his family is actually missing out on business opportunities because his father pledged to conduct no new foreign business while he was in office. [..]

"It's sort of a shame. Because we put on all these impositions on ourselves and essentially got no credit for actually doing that ... for doing the right thing," he added.

For at least a week before Trump Jr. arrived in India on Tuesday, several major Indian newspapers carried glossy, front-page advertisements with the statement, "Trump has arrived. Have you?"

Actually there IS no question that the tRumps have benefitted massively from their position: tax cuts that were maximized for them, lucrative deals in China, India, Whitehouse spokestwats plugging their goods during official business, no it's not the United States of America, it's the United $$$'s of tRump. But the power of presidential greed doesn't stop there, hell no, it goes into legislation as well.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Payday lenders got regulators to rethink rules on how closely to vet borrowers. E-cigarette makers got a delay in federal oversight of many vaping products. Candy makers praised a decision to hold off on more stringent labeling standards. And title insurers declared "victory" for getting changes that benefited them in the tax overhaul.

What do all these American special-interest groups have in common? They were among those that booked meetings, retreats and conferences at hotels and golf resorts owned by President Donald Trump.

Yes, the tRump financial monster has it's hooks in all and any avenues of opportunity, many of which heretofore unknown. The irony of Lil' Guido tRump whining about being all restrained and proper is fucking hilarious, because you know being the First Family of the US doesn't mean you should have to set an example of propriety or anything. The fact that they're not able to rent the Whitehouse to the Netanyahu's for a bar mitzvah is just too much! It's so hard. So hard.

I look forward to the retrospective that will come in a decade, when most, if not all, will be laid bare. Hopefully the statues will still be viable enough to recoup enough money to pay down the national debt for a month.

Marion Hammer: Gun Whore

Marion is worried that without a gun she might get raped. Marion is 90. No one in their right mind wants a piece of her now. No one probably ever did.

Who is Marion?

Marion is an uneducated busy body who made it her business to promote the NRA when it was barely a logo on the horizon. She lives in Florida and has undue influence for a nobody who should honestly be a nobody. But age and being a persistent nuisance has made her somebody who is basically the embodiment of what is wrong with society: she worships the gun.

N.R.A. members elected Hammer to the organization’s board of directors in 1982. Five years later, Florida enacted her pioneering concealed-carry law, turning Hammer into a gun-rights star. In the early nineties, the board made her vice-president, and, between 1995 and 1998, Hammer served as the N.R.A.’s president, the first woman to head the organization. According to a former colleague at the Institute for Legislative Action, Hammer, who still sits on the N.R.A.’s board, has a “direct line” to Wayne LaPierre, the organization’s firebrand C.E.O. “Marion could do anything she wanted, and whatever she wanted she got,” the former colleague told me. “She would more or less single-handedly make legislation and push it.” In 2016, the N.R.A. paid Hammer two hundred and six thousand dollars, on top of the hundred and ten thousand dollars she earned from the Unified Sportsmen of Florida. (New Yorker)

Wow $200k for pushing death, murder and bullets. That's quite a haul for an old biddy with a high school degree. Guess it pays to sell death, and boy oh boy has she been good at it.

Stand Your Ground was introduced in the Florida legislature in December, 2004. Though no one realized it at the time, it would become the N.R.A.’s most controversial law. “Marion was the ringmaster,” Dan Gelber, who later served as the House Democratic minority leader, said. “It was her circus. She was telling everyone where to go and what hoops to jump through.” Before Stand Your Ground, Americans were forbidden to use force in potentially dangerous public situations if they had the option of fleeing. The new law removed any duty to retreat, justifying force so long as a shooter “reasonably” believed that physical harm was imminent. It was a radical break with legal tradition. Now a person’s subjective feelings of fear were grounds to shoot someone even if there were other options available.

And so Marion brought death to Travon and freedom for the fuckwad who chased down an innocent, candy-carrying kid who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Not that Marion feels any guilt about it. I mean hell, $200k means you basically never have to feel guilt about anyone being murdered with a gun ever.

Marion you're a fucking cunt, but the good news is that you're one old, withered, dry cunt that can't last forever. And trust me, that day can't come too soon for the rest of us.

Grant Stinchfield: Cock

Not as in he *has* one, rather that he *is* one.

Fuck you Grant. You too can eat a dick. Or several.

Feb/22
2018

Let's just get this out up front: Wayne LaPierre is the embodiment of evil in America today. He is a proprietor of death. He is greed. His is what George Orwell warned us about in Animal Farm.

"They hate the NRA. They hate the Second Amendment. They hate individual freedom," LaPierre said. "In the rush of calls for more government, they also revealed their true selves. The elites don't care, not one whit about America's school system. And school children. If they truly cared, what they would do is they would protect them, for them, it is not a safety issue. It is a political issue." (UPI)

Wayne is partially right, I DO hate the NRA. I hate the money they give to evil people to advance the agenda of gun-fueled murder that plagues the nation. No one, I repeat NO ONE, needs an assault rifle. They're not for hunting. They're not for recreation. They're not for any type of survival. They're not for freedom. They're for one thing and one thing only: murder.

Freedom: the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint

The power to KILL is not listed anywhere in that definition. Bullets? No mention. That's because FREEDOM means without fear, without restriction, and without guns. Yes, that's right YOU CAN HAVE FREEDOM WITHOUT GUNS. In fact one might argue that the LESS GUNS THE MORE FREEDOM there is for EVERYONE.

Like the kid said "he'd never have been able to kill as many with a knife."

Fuck the NRA. Fuck you Wayne LaDouche. You don't get to redefine freedom. Freedom is the USA WITHOUT GUNS. Now let's see how many politicians can say "fuck the NRA money." Because, you know, that's the real problem.

Crisis

Last week, 17 people died at school. Fifteen of them were children, ages 14-18. Another fourteen people were injured. Shot down by one asshole with a gun.

The survivors were naturally upset at the event. It's something they'll likely need to talk to a therapist about for a long time before they come to grips with it. Then they did the unthinkable. They got up and spoke out. They made sense. They resonated with the populous. They used the long toted 'who will protect the kids' argument against the people that have ridden that mantra for decades.

And yet today, there are 'people' out there who are seriously speculating that these dead people did not actually die. It's all a hoax by the evil fake news liberal agenda to take our guns. And if you're one of these troglodytes, you believe these 14 year old kids are actually 'crisis actors' paid by the hoax to help the evil liberals, despite all evidence to the contrary.

I honestly could say horrible things about these vermin. Call them the various kinds of vile names they deserve. But instead, I'm going to agree with Marco Rubio: "Claiming some of the students on tv after #Parkland are actors is the work of a disgusting group of idiots with no sense of decency"

If you know me, you can imagine how painful it is for me to do that. He's right.

Of course, the next step is to consider why people believe this. There is no evidence. At all. Most of the bodies are barely in the ground. Lots of people walking around with wounds. And yearbooks show the faces of people in the school for years.

Well, I could blame Trump's fake news comments. Or the complete lack of reality over at Fox news for the past 20 years. Or the trolls on the internet who just love to say controversial things to piss people off. Or I could put the blame on the failed education system that has not given people the tools to be reasonable intelligent people. Or the mental health failures that have allowed so many mentally handicapped people to be off their meds. Perhaps all of those things factor in.

But I'm going to go and drop it all on the National Rifle Association. They have lobbied for decades to push guns into the streets to increase sales. They have put forth candidates that are entirely unqualified for any sort of mid level thought process (let alone high level). They bought voices to spew garbage on news networks and in the public eye for years. They lied and lied and lied and go away with it by repeating it so often. Knowing the candidates were stupid, they pushed for dumber voters. They built up the sacred idea that Jesus would want you to exercise your god given right to have a rifle. They fight to let poor people, criminals and insane people buy their products easily without a background check or waiting period. They fight to make sure there are always more poor people, criminals and insane people. They want people to think that a 30 round magazine is required for hunting or home defense.

Fear is the NRA's stock and trade. They make people afraid that someone is going to come door to door to take your guns (god given guns!). They make their customers afraid because a scared coward is more likely to want a gun. They want to make you afraid. They want you to support them to help their ideals prevail (PROFIT!). They want any criticism or dissent silenced.

They share that quality with other groups: Terrorists. So, the next time an NRA member brings up crisis actors or 2nd amendment rights, just remember that you're arguing with ISIS. They have no moral center. No logical thought. No core of decency. There is no sense wasting your time. You can't fix them. They're broken.

There's a clear theme here.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- As the nation mourned, President Donald Trump kept largely silent about the Florida school shooting victims and the escalating gun control debate, instead raging at the FBI for what he perceived to be a fixation on the Russia investigation at the cost of failing to deter the attack.

Did he NOT notice that kids died last week? Does that not even matter to him? I guess not. Because it's the United States of tRump. We just are lucky enough to live here.

Because you're not born knowing how to massacre an entire school.

The troubled teen authorities say killed 17 people at a Florida high school excelled in an air-rifle marksmanship program supported by a grant from the National Rifle Association Foundation, part of a multimillion-dollar effort by the gun group to support youth shooting clubs and other programs. (AP)

Just like the tobacco industry the NRA tries to insinuate gun culture into American youth. And it works. I hear all the time "guns aren't dangerous, I grew up with them." But at the same time we don't grow up with checks and balances on our mental health. We don't have training on meditation or relaxation, if anything it's the opposite: "play hard, party hard." That is the midset. And when the desire to hurt as many people as possible overlaps with the ability to acquire guns and the knowledge to use them then we raise generations of killers.

Of course politicians are "so surprised" which is fascinating because they know how quickly they can fill their coffers with NRA bucks to support a gun-friendly environment. No, there's no chance that pussy politicos will do anything to cross the powerful gun lobby, they're scared spitless of losing that precious money, and the flare of waving guns at their next pre-election campaign.

Of course the biggest irony is that Dickhead himself enabled the types of people he says we should all be on the alert for: people with certified mental illness. Of course by the same token the after dickhead made it easier for people with mental illness to GET guns. Not that they want to admit it. Nope, in fact it never even happened because there's no picture that it happened. Well even if there are pictures they're not going to release them, so no. It never happened.

The White House has refused to release a photo of President Donald Trump signing a law making it easier for some people with mental illness to buy guns.

Despite repeated requests from CBS News, the White House press office has issued only a one-line response.

Mr Trump last year repealed an Obama-era rule allowing the names of certain people on mental health benefits to be entered into a criminal database. (BBC)

Just hoping this will all go away so he can pocket more dough and talk about himself some more. That's the current president. Out fucking standing asshole.

The NRA rejoices! And so does the GOP!

When GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted that her heart was breaking for those affected, Ms Kalb's response that GOP candidates took more than $17m (£12m) from the NRA was retweeted more than 7,500 times and liked 11,000 times.

The figures that Ms Kalb used are based on an article from the New York Times in October 2017 following the Las Vegas shooting. The paper produced a list of all the thoughts and prayers expressed by senators and the money they had received from the NRA during the year 2016-2017.

In response to Florida's senator Marco Rubio's post that "Today is that terrible day you pray never comes" Ms Kalb wrote the figure $3.303,355. (BBC)

Of course, so do the NRA Trolls who suddenly defend their hobbies with quotes like "what do guns have to do with school shootings?" and "well if MORE people had MORE guns we'd have less massacres." Because, right, that's TOTALLY a thing.

Actually the "thing" is that stupid adults are allowed to vote. They're allowed to buy guns. They're allowed to influence policy. They're willing participants in the cycle of violence. The NRA does NOT care about children dying and every card-carrying member should be proud of their contribution to the tragedy of gun violence. Other nations have solved this problem, they DON'T have the deaths we do, but clearly in the US when it comes to a choice between owning a lethal weapon because it's "cool" (sorry, the public has no necessity to own a bullet-firing weapon, unlike say food or medicine) and the risk of kids being murdered the choice is clear.

The NRA supports school shootings, NRA members fund policies that enable preventable deaths of innocents. That's the world we live in. Just fucking spare us the bullshit "omg HOW did this happen and WHAT do we do to prevent it?" Because you know. We all know. We just don't fucking care.

The sad fact is that when children die more guns are sold. Because that's the NRA's America.

At least 17 people have been killed in a shooting at a local high school in Parkland, Florida, police say.

The suspect has been named as Nikolas Cruz, 19, and is a former student at the school who had been expelled.

He reportedly pulled the fire alarm and caused chaos in the school before he started shooting, law enforcement officials told CBS News. (BBC)

The cycle keeps repeating itself with increasing intensity. Why? Because of continued accessibility to guns and because our culture has made it a quick and easy way to fame. As we know people will do ANYTHING to go from nobody to somebody everyone is talking about. From reject to infamous in the pull of a trigger. All it takes is a gun and a lot of bullets.

The NRA wants everyone to believe that more guns equals less massacres, but if you take that to it's logical conclusion which is the actual scenario where there are no more gun massacres? The one where EVERYONE has a gun? Or the one where NO ONE has a gun?

That's when it becomes obvious. But it's hard to get rich by NOT selling something. So here we go again.

This massacre brought to you by the NRA: Buy more, kill more, just make sure you're the last man standing.

Yes You Too Asswipe

Austrian director Michael Haneke is sad that the Directing Couch is now (almost) a thing of the past. He misses the good ol' days when men could be as misogynistic as they liked and bitches either put up or got kicked out.

BERLIN (AP) -- Austrian film director Michael Haneke, an Academy Award and two-time Palme d'Or winner, has compared the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal to a "witch hunt" that has ushered in a "new, men-hating puritanism."[..] He said what especially bothered him was the "complete spitefulness without any reflection and the blind rage, which is not based on facts but ... destroys the lives of people whose crimes have not been proven."

Haneke said, "people are been killed in the media, lives and careers destroyed."

Because it's TERRIBLE when a famous man gets exposed but when a woman is abused behind a closed door it's fine, just fine.

Hey Mikey. Fucking fuck you fuck face, mmmm 'kay? All these "poor men" who are victims of hysteria, "complete spitefulness" and "blind rage", maybe just maybe ask yourself where that spite and rage came from hmmm? Maybe, just maybe if women weren't treated like disposable commodities that rage, that hate, that desire for revenge wouldn't exist. And maybe your pity for "all the other men" who have been injustly vilified just masks the fear you have that someone will expose you.

How about you take a dose of "man up you fucking pussy" and realize that you had your day, and that exclusive male dominance in film is coming to a close. Or, if you like, "if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen Bitch... oh and while you're in there? Make me a sandwich."

A suspected big cat poacher has been eaten by lions near the Kruger National Park in South Africa, police say.

The animals left little behind, but some body parts were found over the weekend at a game park near Hoedspruit.

"It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions," Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP.

"They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left his head and some remains." (BBC)

Sometimes the lion wins. Not all the time mind you, but when it does it's a good cause to celebrate.

Go Lions!

It all starts with being stupid or, in this case, stupid and arrogant. Junior Dickhead Pence (doesn't quite have the same ring as "Dickhead Donald") heads off to Korea for the Olympics, and when confronted with the sister of the North Korean Dicktater he freaks out and hides. Refuses to go to dinner. Looks straight ahead when she's next to him. Doesn't say a word.

Not very manly if you ask me. Certainly no John Wayne, staring danger in the face, challenging ideas, speaking up for what he believes in. Nope. Instead of being the vice president of the American Patriarchy, Pence came across as a scared child.

But Mike Pence and Kim Yo-jong stared fixedly ahead during the chilly, blustery opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics on Friday in Pyeongchang, South Korea. There would be no dramatic handshake to upstage the athletes, flag carriers, drummers or torchbearers. (NYT)

One way or another, either popping some bubblegum or being a man and saying something Pence could have made history. Instead he was just a nobody and the moment went by...

Dickhead loves to talk about how "great" he's making America. Problem is, the only thing Dickhead is making great is the fucking mess he's making of the nation.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Money spent on lobbying by corporations, trade associations and special interest groups spiked during the final three months of 2017 as they battled for the biggest breaks possible in the most dramatic tax overhaul in more than 30 years.

The figures for the heavyweights are eye-popping.

The National Association of Realtors tallied $22.2 million between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, according to newly filed disclosure reports. That's double what the organization spent in the third quarter on lobbying activities. The Business Roundtable spent $17.3 million in the fourth quarter, nearly quadruple the amount over the three previous months, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce reported spending $16.8 million, a $3.7 million increase.

President Donald Trump swept into the White House promising to "drain the swamp" in Washington, but lobbyists continue to wield considerable influence and they plied their trade with vigor as Congress crafted the $1.5 trillion tax-cut package that Trump signed into law in late December.

Yes, tens of millions were spent by lobbyists, not on healthcare, not on infrastructure, and certainly NOT on tax cuts for the poor or middle class. Nope, this is a shameless display of spending money to make money by buying the politicians who can influence laws. This was money spent BY the rich FOR the rich and you know what? It worked. They won and won big. They won tax cuts WITHOUT a cutoff date. Unlike what the public got, businesses, the rich got a heaping helping of champagne while the voters got swamp water served up in paper cups.

This is Trumpmerica and the entertaining part is the still loyal proclaiming how GREAT the nation is now because they're getting the scraps on the floor, left over as the fat cats feast.

I need to change the title of this category from "nothing as stupid as tRump" to "nothing as stupid as a tRump supporter" because they're the reason we're in this mess.

Dickhead Donald can't see anything wrong with slapping a few bitches, especially when in a relationship with them. In fact he applauds not just the idea but anyone who fits that bill.

US President Donald Trump has paid tribute to an ex-aide who quit this week amid domestic abuse allegations.

"We wish him well," he said in his first public remarks on the claims against ex-White House staff secretary Rob Porter. "He worked very hard." [..] "He did a very good job while when he was in the White House. And we hope he has a wonderful career and he will have a great career ahead of him." (BBC)

Pretty clearly Dickhead doesn't have any issue with a guy who would slug his bride on their honeymoon. Even if it's like a pattern of abuse that multiple women can attest to. That's because Dickhead doesn't value women or even see them as human. In Dickhead's pea brain women are merely an accessory, something that's damn clear from the way he treats the First Lady.

But Dickhead was always a dickhead, my extra special reserve, black-label hate is set aside specially for women who support Dickhead. You can almost hear them thinking "Omg, yes, yes, please abuse ME Donny, yes, I'll forgive you because god told me to."

Those cunts really do deserve a sock in the chops. Problem is, they'd love it.

Asshole is back at it again, posing for the cocksucking jesus droolers.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump told a prayer breakfast Thursday that faith is "central to American life and liberty."

In remarks to the annual gathering of lawmakers, religious leaders and dignitaries, Trump noted that America's founders invoked "our creator" in the Declaration of Independence, U.S. currency declares "In God We Trust" and "we place our hands on our hearts as we recite the Pledge of Allegiance and proclaim we are one nation under God."

Dickhead only worships one god: himself. The single reason he's aware of "in god we trust" is because money is the runner up in his polytheistic pantheon of puerility.

Faith. Don't make me fucking laugh. Anyone with any REAL faith knows that you only forgive sinners when they try NOT to sin again. Dickhead, however, claims faith while everything he does and says contradicts the very basis of any religion. And the blind zealots suck it up, proclaiming loyalty to someone who is the very epitome of greed, lust, sloth, wrath, envy, pride and a pile of cheeseburgers in bed.

Faith. You fucking faith fakers are laughable. Please. Go faith yourself.
