Because in Steve King's world everyone is exactly the same: white, right and uptight.
Senior Republican congressman Steve King has sparked a backlash on social media after tweeting his support for the Dutch anti-Islam politician, Geert Wilders.
"Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny," Mr King wrote on Twitter.
"We can't restore our civilisation with somebody else's babies," he added.
The US Republican representative of Iowa defended his comments on Monday, saying he "meant exactly what he said".(BBC)
So this is our new world order. Thanks to the election of a total fuckwad people aren't just coming out of their racism closet, they're burning that motherfucker down and proudly declaring their hate for those "others". On Steve King's agenda: kill all the black/yellow/brown/red babies. Or at least make life as miserable as possible for those producing them.
So it's just another day in tRumpmerica. Embrace diversity? Lol, only if it means different shades of pure, lily-white asshole.
The GOP is rushing this though because they don't want their fantasy to come to an end. The truth hurts. Problem is they won't be the ones really suffering.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Fourteen million Americans would lose coverage next year under House Republican legislation remaking the nation's health care system, and that number would balloon to 24 million by 2026, Congress' budget analysts projected Monday. Their report deals a stiff blow to a GOP drive already under fire from both parties and large segments of the medical industry.[..]
The report also flies in the face of Trump's talk of "insurance for everybody," which he stated in January. He has since embraced a less expansive goal - to "increase access" - advanced by House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republicans.
The ACA took months of research, commentary and input from all sides of the equation. Yes, those bad, bad democrats did things the RIGHT way by steady measures, research and consultation with experts. The GOP on the other hand doesn't want ANY of the above because they want to take credit before the fact and fuck the consequences. Even if those consequences are people who voted for them.
Good job red-voters! Enjoy your "Great" america. Just don't get sick. Or old.
How blind are you to pure evil?
March 7 (UPI) -- U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly said his agency is considering separating undocumented children from their parents if caught illegally crossing the border.
So when a desperate parent makes a journey WITH their child to the US to find a better life the first thing the US should do is rip that child away from the parent and put it into a holding cell with other children and then what? Somehow this is going to deter adults who have made a dangerous journey, adults who didn't abandon their child at home or send them alone to the US. Yep, compassionate, caring america is now the hate-filled, anger-seething, calculating nation which would "punish" anyone trying to come here illegally by tearing their child away from them.
So in my mind this registers as: inhuman, evil, vile, brutal, and probably even more in violation of human rights than some of our worst enemies. Tearing children from parent to what, teach the PARENT a lesson? Fuck what it does to the kid?
You know I saw somewhere a sign that said "Your vote was a hate crime." And honestly, with this administration it certainly is coming down to that.
John Kelly, you're a filthy, vile, scumbag of a person if you even CONSIDER doing this.
Dickhead Donald can go suck a congress full of dicks. And choke on them. If, that is, he can get his own (tiny) dick out of his mouth to do it.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump has offered to maintain federal funding for Planned Parenthood if the group stops providing abortions. Its president spurned the proposal and noted that federal money already is not allowed to be used for abortion.
Women's health is a fundamental right. Government has no business telling women what they can or can't do with respect to their minds, bodies or future. Small government? More privacy? YES - FOR ALL.
Go suck a dick Donald. Go suck all of them.
The stupid isn't stopping. Actually it's picking up speed and taking all of us with it.
A U.S. official tells The Associated Press that the FBI has asked the Justice Department to dispute allegations made on Twitter by President Donald Trump that Barack Obama as president ordered the tapping of Trump's phones during the presidential campaign[..] The New York Times reports that FBI Director James Comey has argued that the claim is false and has to be corrected. (AP)
So here we have a dangerously delusional man "in charge" and the government powerless, or unwilling, to stop it. Everyone is aware that he's a pathological liar, but no one seems to have a solution to the empty accusations, empty promises that are being flung around with increasing and frightening speed. Trump throws lies faster than a monkey slings poo and yet some people are still supporting him.
Never, in the history of the US, has someone so obviously in need of medical help been put in the most prominent spot. Never have we ever been in as much danger from one person. Compared to Nero, tRump seems as unstable as Charles Manson and about as deadly.
Danger, danger Will Robinson. It's tRumps world, and we just live in it. Maybe not for much longer.
Because let me tell ya, we've only just got started on this shit...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump unloaded on the news media Friday for using anonymous sources - just hours after members of his own staff insisted on briefing reporters only on condition their names be concealed.
So which is it Dickhead? Only the president can tell reporters when to use anonymous sources? But reporters can't decide for themselves? SINCE WHEN DOES FREE SPEECH ONLY APPLY TO THE WHITE HOUSE?
Of course, when you're a lying, greed-bag you HAVE to protect your "sources" because it makes it that much harder to dispute the facts. Then again, you can just ORDER agencies to lie FOR you. Too bad some of those agencies have higher moral standards.
The White House has confirmed it asked an FBI official to discredit reports President Trump's campaign aides were in touch with Russian intelligence. (BBC)
So anything Dicktater Donald doesn't like is clearly a lie. Anything that he agrees with is the truth. Fuck evidence and facts.
I'm sorry isn't that the very definition of a sociopath?
By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise. - Hitler
NRA has a message for Trump supporters: "it's ok to shoot anyone that disagrees with you."
The head of the National Rifle Association says conservatives should stand up for themselves if "the violent left brings their terror into our communities."
Wayne LaPierre spoke Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he showed videos of violent protesters. He asked the crowd if they were ready to take on the left.
LaPierre said: "Show them you won't submit. We will not be intimidated."
He says members of the NRA helped President Donald Trump win the election, that "Americans wanted a fire, and we got one."
He also argues the media is a threat, saying, "You're not going to win, and you will not defeat us."(AP)
So, it's not about the right to bear arms to overthrow the government, it's to ENFORCE government views on those who disagree. Put another way it's a declaration of war against the majority who voted against an evil, lying, psychotic, sack of shit. And anyone who dares protest, who considers using the same angry rhetoric that made the Tea Party Fuckwads so popular are now targets because tRump won.
It's not hard to understand why Dickhead Donald is now one of the least popular presidents in American history, with douche nozzles like this one agitating an already divided nation to further violence. This is the vision of an america for "all people"? No, it's a vision of armed-mob anarchy, something we're sliding towards with so much speed it's frightening.
It's a neat trick: how do you separate a man from his money and his freedom? Answer: convince him that he's better off without them. Alternatively; ensure that he perceives his enslavement as liberty.
Samuel Delaney naturally said it better...
Convince a slave that he is free, and he will fight to maintain his slavery
The GOP used this principle well, but tRumpsterfuck schooled them in it. Dickhead Donald made both empty and obviously bogus promises and idiots ate it up. Making the US safe by building a wall to keep people out or keep people in? Saving women from making mistakes about their future they're obviously unqualified to make. Putting the worst of the worst in charge of American banks, resource, military and education and slapping lipstick on their porcine lips. And some people actually were willing to believe, even though I'm sure they know that Santa, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny are fabrications, they couldn't or wouldn't think long enough to realize that putting one of the richest men in charge of the nation wouldn't make them richer, safer or better off.
Yes, many voters wanted to believe so badly, wanted to belong so badly that even a poorly made fantasy sculpted by an orange faced, hate spewing, pussy-grabber seem like a godsend. Mainly because they didn't want to THINK about the reality of the situation, because the reality is hard, it takes work and most of all it takes compromise (gasp).
I wonder how long it will take for the US to recover from the raping it's taking, it's going to take. More than that I wonder if those voters will ever be able to admit they made a mistake, at least long enough to prevent it from happening again in their lifetime.
What, might you inquire, is a "fur fucker"? Well it's just someone who fucks anything with fur to death in the most horrific manner possible, sort of like a pedophile rapist, but with animals. Basically Don is one of the most horrible humans alive.
On 76 million acres of federal refuges in Alaska, hunters will be permitted to enter dens where vulnerable bear families are hibernating and kill them if the resolution becomes law. They will also be able to shoot entire wolf families raising young pups if the Senate and President agree with the vote.[..] The overturning of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) ban would also allow hunters to lure animals with food and shoot them at point-blank range.
Now it's unclear why the push to overturn the ban was introduced in the first place, as a 2016 poll of Alaska voters showed that most agreed that those practices should be banned. Alaska's Representative Don Young (R-AK), who has trapped animals in the past, introduced the measure, known as H.J. Resolution 69, anyway. (TheDodo)
Wow Don, you're so american, so manly by enabling the most inhumane methods of hunting for NO FUCKING REASON AT ALL other than maybe "yay guns". Oddly even those who might benefit from this change are also against it, because luring animals and killing cubs isn't ANYone's definition of "sport". It's pretty just the definition of evil, kind of like luring kindergarten kids with candy and then putting them in prison for stealing. Only with death thrown in.
It's unfathomable why, when no reasonable person can defend something like this, that politicians, who must be so fucking scared of the lynch-mob society they've created, will vote for it. States rights? No, this has nothing to do with states rights, it has to do with common decency, regardless of race, color, creed, religion or political alignment.
So congratulations Don Young, for being some of the most reprehensible scumbags in the nation. Here's hoping you get eaten someday by one of those mama bears that your state is so famous for. Shitbag.
Dickhead Donald is all about "Winning". Every time he talks about himself and what he's doing that word is in there. Of course if you're forced to go on a second round of victory tours to convince people of how "winning" you are, clearly your record isn't speaking for itself.
President Donald Trump is out of Washington for the weekend. His plans include meetings at his Mar-a-Lago estate and a campaign rally in central Florida.
On Twitter Saturday, Trump touted his "many meetings this weekend at The Southern White House" and his "big" speech in Melbourne later in the day. He added: "A lot to talk about!"
Trump is trying to regain his footing following a series of crises that have threatened his young administration. (AP)
So the whole notion that his record of "winning" would speak for itself seems to be somewhat in jeopardy. And while most presidents enjoy a honeymoon period after their election, DD's post-winning (the electoral college) period seems better characterized as a dismal-moon with chaos, defections, misinformation, misspellings and blatant lies.
Oh and let's not forget about the hate, because he's really good at the schoolyard bully tweets:
I feel sorry for Rosie 's new partner in love whose parents are devastated at the thought of their daughter being with @Rosie--a true loser.
You must admit that Bryant Gumbel is one of the dumbest racists around - an arrogant dope with no talent. Failed at CBS etc-why still on TV?
I loved beating these two terrible human beings. I would never recommend that anyone use her lawyer, he is a total loser! (DD)
That is the current president, speaking for himself in his own words. Wow, isn't he "winning"?
Because judges, being both educated and qualified, are not sufficiently ignorant to be swayed by moronic arguments.
Feb. 17 (UPI) -- In a case that could have broad legal implications for the country, the Washington state Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that a Christian florist could not use her faith to justify refusing service for a gay couple's wedding.
Lawyers for the defendant, Baronelle Stutzman, pledged they would appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The case began in 2013 in the city of Richland, Wash., when a gay couple, Robert Ingersoll and Curt Freed, contacted Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flower Shop, to provide flowers for their wedding. Though Stutzman knew the couple were gay and had sold them flowers before, she refused to do so for the nuptials, saying her Christian faith restricted marriage to between a man and a woman and participating in the ceremony would violate her religious beliefs.[..]
The justices drew on the civil rights era debate over segregated and whites-only lunch counters to rule in the couple's favor.
"[This case] is no more about access to flowers than civil rights cases in the 1960s were about access to sandwiches," the justices wrote in a 59-page decision. "Public accommodations laws do not simply guarantee access to goods or services. Instead, they serve a broader societal purpose: eradicating barriers to the equal treatment of all citizens."
So there you go, proof (and logic) positive that "religious freedom" is just a glossy coat on the steaming pile of shit that's actually called discrimination. You're a BUSINESS, not a fucking artist, you plunk flowers into a vase based on a pre-made picture that shows you how. If you choose to HAVE a business you are required to serve EVERYONE EQUALLY. Too bad you don't like how your customer looks, or what they believe in, or even whom they choose to love. TOO FUCKING BAD because you have to sell to them whether you like it or not.
Religious fucktards have been empowered and emboldened by conservatives, deluded into believing that all of the nation needs to align with their ideals and, when they don't, forced into adhering. Oddly, the courts aren't agreeing, even if politicians like to blame the judiciary for being uncontrolled and reactionary, the truth is they're only upholding the laws as they are logically and unemotionally applied. As they apply to EVERYONE, not just the people who want to be right.
I'm happy about that. And it makes me hopeful that after conservatives beat their head bloody against the law in an attempt to deny equality to the LBGT community that then maybe women will get a chance for their freedom as well. Screw conservatives, screw your hate, your tiny brains and hearts. I see a future where your rhetoric will be marginalized into the background as the noise it truly is.
Because it's a GOOD thing to put guns into the hands of the certifiably insane.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congress on Wednesday sent President Donald Trump legislation blocking an Obama-era rule designed to keep guns out of the hands of certain mentally disabled people.
On a vote of 57-43, the Senate backed the resolution, just one of several early steps by the Republican-led Congress to undo regulations implemented by former President Barack Obama. The House had passed the measure earlier this year. The White House has signaled Trump will sign the legislation.
The Obama rule would have prevented an estimated 75,000 people with mental disorders from being able to purchase a firearm.
It's hard to understand why the GOP feels the need to enable crazy fuckers to own guns, especially when there's documented history of crazies being the ones who have used said weapons to kill as many people as they can. Such as children. But no, the NRA wants to enable everyone and anyone to have a gun to kill, kill, kill. Because killing is cool or something. And no, it's not about self defense because certified wack jobs like Lanza and Holmes weren't being threatened by elementary school kids or a theater full of moviegoers, really not.
I'm pretty sick of the whole "I need a gun" bullshit. No, no you fucking don't. You don't need a gun. ESPECIALLY if you're stupid-crazy. Wanna hunt? Sure, go nuts. But you don't need a pistol or an AR for that. Going to overthrow the government? Right, go ahead try it and get back to me on that too. Because someone is going to invade your home and take you hostage?
The ratio for 2012, per the Violence Policy Center, was one justifiable killing for every 32 murders, suicides or accidental deaths (the ratio increases to 38-1 over the five-year period ending in 2012). (LA Times)
Yeah the statistics don't support that. You're more likely to shoot a family member or just fuck up and shoot yourself instead. But hey, the GOP loves sucking NRA dick because John Wayne and Clint Eastwood ok?
What a fucking stupid way to govern.
There you go, campaign promise kept: families broken, dreams destroyed, it's not so easy to face when the concept of "ridding the nation of illegal immigrants" becomes actual humans in actual chains. Here look at it.
"DIFFERENT RULES A federal raid aimed at illegal immigrants in Long Island last month angered local officials who objected to the lack of warrants. Credit Pool photo by Michael Schwartz (NYT)"
Happy now? Do you feel safer? Prouder? More american? If the answer is yes then either you're a liar, a fucking psychopath who takes pleasure in the pain of others, a heartless fucktard or deliberately ignorant. Congratulations on your victory. Too bad it tastes like vomit.
One of those detainees has two U.S.-born children, no criminal background, and has spent years living in the United States. Another one was considered a “gang member” simply because of old speeding tickets and tattoos.
Go on, pat yourself on the back. Job well done.
To the Trumps the Presidency is only a way to make a LOT of money. It has nothing to do with actually contributing to the country.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- First lady Melania Trump expected to develop "multi-million dollar business relationships" tied to her presence in the White House, according to a lawsuit she filed. And she has yet to step away from the companies that manage royalties from her name-branded products, business documents show.
Ethics watchdogs worry that Mrs. Trump seems to be inappropriately trying to profit from a high-profile position that is usually centered on public service.
NEW YORK (AP) -- The White House has "counseled" a top aide to President Donald Trump after she promoted Ivanka Trump's fashion line during a national cable television appearance from the White House.
My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible! -Dickhead Donald
It's either jaw-dropping or awe-inspiring, whichever, the level of blatant GREED involved. One might think, in fact I'm sure very many hoped, that Dickhead Donald would at some point start acting like a president and boy oh boy has he proven them wrong. In fact it's pretty fair to say he's gotten only worse and we're barely into his tenure. The Clintons were bashed over book deals and speaking engagements, but compared to this? Wow, not even several orders of magnitude within comparison. Even as president Dickhead can find more time to complain about how other businesses are negatively affecting his and why he should be getting MORE money, MORE attention, he still has yet to address the SMALL business person whom he pledged to empower.
Laws? Pffft. He's taking a leaf from Putins playbook, the laws don't apply when you're president. They only apply to everyone else. Including ones he's only just thought up.
Fuck Free Melania, Fuck Ivanka and fuck the entire tRump troupe. Did you vote for him? Are you not sorry yet? No? Then fuck you too.
If Obama was the great "Explainer in Chief" we now have this asshole as president. But hey, he can have TWO titles.
"All over Europe it's happening. It's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported. And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that." -Dickhead Donald
He would have won the popular vote. More people came to his inauguration. Terror events are not reported. The press, ALL OF THEM (except maybe Fox) are liars. Deny. I didn't say it, even if you have it on tape, I didn't say that. That's not what I meant. It's not even one month and every sane person is fucking sick of hearing excuse after excuse for the baby-man who became king.
On Air Force One, before a smaller audience, Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump did not really mean that terrorist attacks received no coverage. Trump's actual complaint, he said, was that such acts don't get enough attention. (AP)
Want a fact? I'll give you one: this asshole acts, speaks and thinks JUST like someone who I know for a fact is delusional. Sufficiently deranged that his spouse was told to pack her bag and keep it in her car at all times, just in case. And I'm not the only one to notice that the pattern of lies, and self-aggrandizing bullshit is at dangerous levels.
Maybe the question has crossed your mind: Is Donald Trump a psychopath?
An expert on the personality disorder took a crack at answering that question and found the GOP nominee to be even more psychopathic than Adolf Hitler. (Daily News)
Hitler was pretty popular too when he was elected. Now it's America's turn and instead of Jews we're going after immigrants. So, which side are you on? Friends with an immigrant? Would you turn them in to the police? Because that's where we're going.
Not mine. I didn't vote for him.
President Donald Trump has told a Texas sheriff they could "destroy" the career of a state lawmaker trying to reform asset forfeiture laws that critics say police abuse as a funding source.
Trump's comment Tuesday drew laughs during a meeting with sheriffs in the White House. The remark followed Rockwall County Sheriff Harold Eavenson's criticism of an unnamed state senator who believes police shouldn't receive forfeiture money unless a case ends in conviction.
Trump responded: "Who is the state senator? Do you want to give his name? We'll destroy his career." (AP)
Now there, tRump voters, doesn't that make you proud? The president of the US saying he's going to help destroy any politician who he doesn't agree with? What's that about "divided we fall?"
Well, I guess that's next then. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done.
