A President with any compassion at all would send AF1 to pick her up and bring her to see her granddaughter.

What about gun control? Epstein? The supposed “numerous” congressional investigations?
All long forgotten now. Everyone has once again fallen for Trumps old game of three card Monty. Roy Cohn would be so proud.

If I weren’t traveling with much better things to do, I would channel my inner Sheldon Hamick (lyricist of Fiddler on the Roof–music by Jerry Bock) and adapt a version of one of his classics for Trump and call it If I were a Human. Oy vey.

Open air prisons do not work anywhere on the planet. There is a difference here in America, we no longer bomb Native Americans.

From Trump’s tweet:

‘Tlaib’s grandmother… doesn’t have to see her now.’

Some might consider this remark clever - if it came from a middle school brat. When an adult says it, the remark is puerile.

YES, you nailed it! trump, the dickless pieceof shit, does nothing but play games, childish games with real life consequences! to “it”, the games are the thing, to “it” winning whatever game now playing is the ONLY thing that matters, regardless of who, or what suffers. the trump loving/supporting/voters surely got what they wanted, a hitler/mussolini wannabe of very low intelligence and, zero conscience/morality. may “it” and it’s followers enjoy the karma coming their way!

We just kill them slowly and destroy their land

From a Trump tweet a day or two ago:

‘Michigan will have a hard time putting (Tlaib) back in office.’

Miscellaneous facts:

  • Rep. Tlaib won her Congressional election with over 84% of the vote.

  • Hillary got 79% of the vote in My-13, Tlaib’s district. Trump got 18%

  • ‘In 2004 Metro Detroit had one of the largest settlements of Middle Eastern people in the United States.’

(All info came from Wikipedia.)

Given these facts, Trump’s tweets during the past few days will probably flip Michigan back to blue in 2020, regardless of who the Democratic Presidential nominee is.

(‘My-13’ should be ‘Mi-13’.)

P. S. - Migration of Middle Easterners to the Detroit area dates back to the 1920s.

We spray them with high pressure hoses during sub-zero weather when they object to what little land they have left being stolen and poisoned.

Time to impeach. Put the system through its paces. We have reached the point where if the system is that broken, it really is time for a revolt.

Trump finally got his Roy Cohn in Bill Barr.

They look so…

In the entire U.S. Congress, only four people, all of them women, represent 99% of Americans. Collectively nicknamed “The Squad”, it is incredible to see how well they stand up to the multi-billion dollar, corporate funded media attacks against them. Under the guidance of their CEO sponsors, the MSM is going into overdrive to demonize these brave women. They’re like the Greta Thunbergs of American politics speaking truth to power and gaining momentum with each passing day.
Of course not all of the 99% are acutely aware that these four women have their best interests at heart, but that is only because of the success corporate media has had over generations pounding out its message that social justice and a more egalitarian society is the work of the devil. Relying on a large segment of the population that actually believes that the devil is some evil creation by God to keep us in line rather than the sociopathic tendencies of corporate CEO’s, many will always cling to the Great Western Narrative to their graves, but it doesn’t change the fact that the reasoned arguments by The Squad are resonating with the vast majority of Americans who struggle each day to make ends meet while the uber wealthy luxuriate in the spoils of their empires based on the exploitation of humanity and the manipulation of government to undermine the public interest.
While it seems hopeless to so many people when only four members of Congress have the courage to fight the Goliath of corruption and greed, at least it is four more Congress people than we have had before. Once the four become forty, the uber wealthy will try desperately to come up with other means to dumb down the population and hold on to its grip on power. Once the forty become four hundred, then finally Americans will be able to seize a government that was never really theirs before and begin the process of establishing a fairer and more just society.
Just as important as our support is for Bernie, it is vitally important that we elect members to Congress that swear an allegiance to the 99% and embrace every, single progressive tenet out there from M4A to free college tuition, an end to Israeli occupation, the dismantling of the U.S. military, higher wages, better social benefits, higher taxes on corporations, a commitment to end fossil fuels in our lifetime while backing every global effort to combat climate change and finally putting an end to the systemic racism that permeates the U.S. system from mass incarceration to our treatment of immigrants. The opposition will be fierce. The Uber Rich are quite willing to slaughter as many Americans as it takes to get us in line. Corporate sycophants like Trump, HRC, Biden, Bolton, Pompeo and Pelosi will still do whatever it takes to undermine the masses as long as the bribes keep flowing in. The same forces that fund the reinforcement of American racism, will find a seemingly endless supply of poor people who will lay down their lives in defence of the privileged, testament to the success of the MSM misinformation campaign that has been waged against the 99% for centuries. But the struggle to free us will be just s difficult as it was to end the enslavement of millions of Africans that existed for centuries as well. Bloodshed will most likely follow, but once in awhile peaceful coups do triumph. The problem in America is the most fanatical supporters of the status quo, are also the most heavily armed.
In the meantime the best we can do to ensure a peaceful transition to power for the 99% will be our ability to expand the Squad. That begins in our own neighbourhoods. No less than the survival of the human species is at stake here. We can’t lose sight of the end game.

Hi PonyBoy. and LOL.
That horn player did look a lot like a younger Bill Barr. Although now Mr Barr resembles a giant toad that has swallowed his bagpipes. Hmmm---- I read that he had visited the Epstein person in prison-----perhaps that shrieking sound came from the sound of bagpipes . : 0

Trump better look in the mirror before discussing family members. We all know the rundown starting with bigoted daddy.

Brilliant essay on what’s wrong with America.

Whenever a disturbed man kills people for some racially tinged publicity, perhaps it’s better that we not publish the killer’s name, nor most of the commentary, only that he said something with a racist agenda.

Whenever a disturbed politician dehumanizes people for some racially tinged publicity, perhaps it’s better that we not publish the dehumanizer’s name.

The formal enslavement may have ended, must most non-whites and a majority of the whites still have no real freedom in a country ruled by an oligarchy.

Author sez:
“Asked about Trump’s attacks on her granddaughter, Tlaib’s grandmother said, ‘I don’t know him. I don’t care.’”

Nice. Shunning the Chump while simultaneously trolling Melania’s wardrobe. Well-played, Ms. Tlaib.
