Shlonged?

Standing before a crowd of 7,500, Trump recounted how the Democratic debate on Saturday night had resumed following a commercial break with only two of the three Democratic candidates. Clinton then walked on stage. Trump asked the crowd four times where Clinton had gone.

"I know where she went -- it's disgusting, I don't want to talk about it,"
Trump said as the crowd laughed. "It's too disgusting. Don't say it, it's disgusting."

Later in the night, Trump told the crowd that he could not picture Clinton as president because she never wins at anything. He then brought up the 2008 Democratic primary, which Clinton lost to Barack Obama.

"She was favored to win, and she got schlonged," Trump said, turning a vulgar noun for a large penis into a verb.

"This is terrorism. No child in America deserves to feel that way."

Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump has pissed off a lot of people with his anti-Muslim comments, but one thing not many people are talking about is how his words are impacting children. For Muslim children in particular almost everything that comes out of Trump’s bigoted mouth is terrifying.

Melissa Chance Yassini recently learned this when she came home from work to find her 8-year-old daughter, Sofia, crying and afraid. Sofia and her grandmother had been watching the news together when something came on about Trump’s plan to deport refugees and ban all Muslims from coming into America, and it made Sofia afraid for herself and her family because they are Muslim. Yassini said:

“She ran to me with a look of absolute fear on her face. It was the first time that it really drove home to me that we’re in a dangerous place right now.”

Yassini spent almost all night comforting her daughter, who was so convinced that she’d be kicked out of America that she had started to put all her things in a bag. The next day, Yassini was just as frustrated as she was exhausted, and she decided to vent about it on Facebook:

The Writers Of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Understand Regime Change Better Than George W. Bush

The following contains spoilers from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


While watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it’s impossible to avoid a sense of déjà vu. The film opens with a resistance operative hiding an important message in a droid shortly before he is captured by servants of the Dark Side. The droid is found by a seemingly insignificant individual on a desert planet who turns out to be a gifted Force-sensitive. There’s even a planet-killing weapon with an Achilles heel that gives urgency to the film’s central conflict. For much of the movie, Star Wars fans could be forgiven if they think that they’ve accidentally stepped into a showing of A New Hope.

And yet, behind the impossible-to-ignore sameness between the first and the most recent Star Wars films is an astute commentary on the aftermath of political upheaval. Indeed, it is a shame that former President George W. Bush did not see it before he ordered American troops into Iraq.

What’s so striking about the world of The Force Awakens is that, three decades after the Rebellion’s triumphant victory over the Empire at the Battle of Endor, little has changed. The superweapon that animates much of the movie’s plot is wielded by the First Order, a military regime that, like the Empire, is led by a master of the Dark Side of the Force who employs an apprentice as his agent. This new regime even maintains an army of stormtroppers clad in the familiar white armor. The Rebellion, meanwhile, has morphed into an entity known as the Resistance, which wages asymmetric warfare against the far more powerful First Order. It’s led by a familiar figure, Leia Organa, who is often simply referred to as “The General.”

Phyllis Schlafly Says Donald Trump is 'Last Hope for America'

WND asked Schlafly if she believes Donald Trump is the last hope for America.



“He does look like he’s the last hope [for America],” Schlafly said. “We don’t hear anybody saying what he’s saying. In fact, most of the people who ought to be lining up with him are attacking him. They’re probably jealous of the amount of press coverage he gets. But the reason he gets so much press coverage is the grassroots are fed up with people who are running things, and they do want a change. They do want people to stand up for America. It really resonates when he says he wants to ‘Make America Great Again.’”

Schlafly said it’s not only Republicans who feel betrayed, but Democrats, too.

“They are betrayed,” she said. “There’s no doubt about it. The working man and woman have been betrayed by both parties. They’re ready for a change … anything they think would be better.”

Brzezinski To Santorum: 'Why Aren't You Working On White Men With Guns?'

"Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski confronted Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Monday by asking why he won't address the growing problem of white men committing gun violence in America if he is so worried about terrorism.

"Why aren't you working on white men with guns?"
Brzezinski asked the former Pennsylvania senator after he chastised American Muslims for not speaking out against their religion's radical factions.

"I mean, come on, Rick Santorum. You know better, you're a smart guy," she continued. "You're telling Muslim-Americans they all need to come out and talk about the tiny percentage of their community that has quite frankly wreaked havoc but yet you look at the data of white men with guns wreaking havoc on this country. Why aren't white men all coming froward? Why don't you call on them to do that? I mean, come on."

Santorum said he is "doing a lot of things to solve gun violence," to which Brzezinski replied, "You're ringing bells."

Trump supporter charged in plot to bomb Muslims: ‘I’ll follow this MAN to the end of the world’

A Donald Trump supporter was arrested after police detonated an explosive device they believe he planned to use against Muslims.

Police received a tip Thursday that 55-year-old William Celli, of Richmond, California, was making explosive devices and threatening to harm Muslims, reported KPIX-TV.

.......

He appears to be a strong admirer of GOP frontrunner Donald Trump — who has been fanning the flames of anti-Muslim hysteria in the wake of mass shootings in Paris and San Bernardino, California.

“Donald trumps on again I’m happy leaders okay but this guys a great point man I’ll follow this MAN to the end of the world,”
Celli posted Oct. 21.

“I guess Christmas Eve was booked.” —Bernie Sanders aide Michael Briggs on Saturday night debates.



That was a good debate.

Let’s have some more of them.

Let’s have a lot more of them.


 And let’s have a lot more of them on weeknights, when viewership, listenership and general attention is likely to be dramatically greater than on “ratings-disaster” weekend nights.

...

 Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her aides beg to differ, as they prattle on about “robust” viewership.

That’s just silly. The latest debate attracted a mere 6.71 million viewers, the lowest number so far for any 2016 debate organized by the DNC or the RNC. Saturday night’s debate was such a flop that it barely attracted one quarter of the viewership of the most watched Republican debate.

“I guess Christmas Eve was booked.”
—Bernie Sanders aide Michael Briggs on Saturday night debates.

A “Christmas Special” debate, scheduled to compete with last-minute shopping, partying, and traveling was never going to rival the ratings for the various and sundry Republican debates—which so far have been held on a Thursday night, a Wednesday night, a Wednesday night, a Tuesday night, and a Tuesday night.



 The response of the O’Malley campaign to those numbers was the right one: “We can’t fool ourselves—the Republicans are eating our lunch in terms of attention and viewership because of the unprecedented, unilateral, and arbitrary way the DNC Chair determined this schedule,” said O’Malley deputy campaign manager Lis Smith.
