Pray for Trump, Psalm 109:8 - Lord hear our prayer!

"May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership"- Psalm 109:8



(For disclosure, I saw this as a meme on Facebook this morning, and found it too funny not to share)

Fox News, Ann Coulter, and Karl Rove.. oh my.



So, all of a sudden, Fox has gone all in on BS. Coulter is okay with BS, and ole Rove is shilling for him as well.

I guess medicare for all is now on the tRumpublicon platform? Democratic Socialism is just fiiiiine. They can all get behind BS!!!


You want to know why they are all in for BS?

https://www.openprimaries.org/primaries_by_state
See all those orange states? Those are the states that have open primary elections. Most of which none of the voters even have to do party registration.

Cheetolini isn't going to have any serious primary challenge. This frees them up to select the candidate that they think they can do their best with and load the deck.

So you can either believe that Fox News really did have interest in giving Bernie a great platform, and a "fair and balanced" coverage from it, and that Ann Coulter "really" believes that Bernie wouldn't be that bad, and Karl Rove really thinks that Bernie is going to be the hard one to beat because he has such great position.. OR

They are giving their nod to their voters that can vote in Democratic Party Primaries on just which candidate they should be going and vote for on those primary dates.



Has everyone lost their collective minds??

1. Sexual harrassment did not happen by any definition.
2. Sexual assault did not happen by any definition.
3. Biden does have a well recorded history of being a contact person. This does not equate to either of the conditions laid out in 1 or 2, but it is an opening for persons receiving said affection to be uncomfortable, and the person whose personal space is invaded does have the right to be or not be uncomfortable as a result.
4. Anyone who has been through any kind of LCEC, or workplace harassment course can tell you, there are behaviors that are not acceptable period (wanton staring/leering, groping, cornering in a threatening manner, conditioning career advancement in return for personal attentions) which does not warrant response to be in violation.
5. there are conditions where it is incumbent upon the person who is made uncomfortable to make an oral declaration of discomfort, such as complimenting ones attire, placing hands upon a person in any way that is not overtly sexual in nature, or making a verbal or non-verbal request of an intimate nature (such as asking to go out for drinks, or dinner).
6. Biden made the PERFECT response of acknowledging the complaint against him, validating the feelings of the person making the complaint, and issuing heartfelt remorse that any behavior of his may have made a person feel discomfort.
7. It does NOT matter that the person stating feelings of violation has a history of wearing any kind of clothing, or appearance. He/she/they give NO consent to ANY behavior based on their dress, appearance, or history.
8. It does NOT matter if the person stating the feelings of violation has a history of accepting the contact or discourse with others. He/she/they have stated an issue of feeling violation for this incident. It matters. It deserves to be addressed.

I really wish more would respect the person(‘s) making complaints, because not doing so now distinctly sends the message that it isn’t okay to come forward with more serious infractions, and I also wish that more would recognize that this isn’t the same level of infraction, the accused has made a statement that completely respects the accusors, and promises atonement, which is standard and generally accepted recompense for the level of infraction that was committed.

GET A GRIP PEOPLE!!!

The Liberal case against Bernie

The Liberal case against Bernie

https://www.thenation.com/article/bernie-sanders-electability-eric-alterman/

Senator Bernie Sanders’s presidential candidacy poses a conundrum for progressives. Not since 1936, when Franklin Roosevelt said that he “welcomed” the hatred of corporate interests, has a serious presidential candidate offered so aggressive a challenge to the conservative powers that be. At the same time, however, a dangerous lunatic is president of the United States, and Sanders, of all the major Democratic contenders, is the one who will make Donald Trump’s reelection most likely. Eight years of a Trump presidency could mean the end of meaningful democracy in the United States, along with many of the rights that women, minorities, immigrants, LGBTQ people, and others now take for granted.

Let me clarify: I’ve been a fan and supporter of Sanders ever since he was elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont, in 1981. I was honored to be asked to testify before him in Congress years ago, and I voted for him in the New York presidential primary in 2016. I did so, however, not because I imagined he might win the nomination, but because I hoped that a strong showing by Sanders would help wake up Hillary Clinton to the importance of addressing economic inequality, and also to honor his brave criticism of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank.

I was wrong. Sanders turned so negative toward Clinton that it hurt her in the general election. Even though he campaigned for her after he lost the nomination, roughly 12 percent of Sanders’s supporters switched to Trump, and enough of the rest supported Jill Stein’s kamikaze candidacy that it helped tip key states to Trump.


My sentiments exactly. He was a toxic variable that played a crucial part in Cheetolini’s rise to power, and I suspected from beginning of this season, and completely reinforced with all of the attacks we are seeing from his surrogates that a repeat is in play.

This election is too important for his purity games.

Beto, Social Security, lies and smears.

So, let's address this latest desperate lie, slander, smear, and old dug up crap by our independent "allies".

1. Beto is rated 100% by the Alliance for Retired Americans. That doesn't come from someone who is for raising the age of SS, or increasing the cost.

2. Beto opposed the Republican led call for converting SS into personal retirement accounts, and privatizing.

2. Pretty telling that one camp has to dig back 7 years to an obscure campaign speech, that was given to address specific concerns of a small constituency, and is NOT at all reflective of what a Senator Beto, and especially a President Beto would look like.

3. Do not be fooled by this crap. A President Beto, or President Biden, or President Warren, or President Harris, or President Buttigieg, or President Inslee, or President Klobacher, or President Hickenlooper, etc.. NONE of them, as a Democratic Party President of the US is going to refuse to sign, or refuse to support ANY Democratic Party Senate or House legislation that pushes to protect Social Security, or expand Social Security. Any of our candidates as POTUS would likewise VETO any Republican congress bill that does weaken our Social Security system.. period. anyone who thinks otherwise is a damn fool. There is NO Democratic Party version of a potential congress that will pass any bill that raises the retirement age, or increases costs of SS (other than possibly raising the tax cap)

They gave you 7 years old information as a representative of a pretty red district, Here's 4 months ago from a red-going purple state:

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=beto+o%27rourke+on+social+security&&view=detail&mid=AC23A092193BCA01FFA9AC23A092193BCA01FFA9&&FORM=VRDGAR

And coming up, I don't have a doubt in my mind, that as a national candidate, his stance and support will likewise be reinforced to support the needs and desires of a national, and not just Texas audience.

Beto has not had the benefit of being a muppet, up in the balcony section, watching and heckling all the real players, while being shored up from a small, homogenous, fully sympathetic constituency. So yes, some of his stances while running as a Representative of El Passo Texas house 76 disctrict aren't going to mesh well with a national message.

But, what's been implied from that 7 year old video.. that he won't support Social Security expansion and protections should we be lucky enough to get a full congress that will pass it, and put that bill on his desk?? Bullshit.. pure, unadulterated, and shameful bullshit.

Earth artist creates 2-acre likeness of Beto O'Rourke outside ABIA



https://cbsaustin.com/news/local/earth-artist-creates-2-acre-likeness-of-beto-orourke-outside-abia

AUSTIN, Texas — A Kansas artist renowned for his crop art around the world is making a political statement in Austin with his latest piece.

Stan Herd, who works with soil, grass, and rock, worked two weeks to create a portrait of presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke. Herd states he wanted to show his support for the former U.S. Senate candidate through an artistic medium.

“I believe Beto has a unique voice. I think he has a unique populist message,” Herd says. “I decided to come down and add my voice to that.”


Wow! Beautiful work!

Beto campaign accepts going union. Aiming for highest wages and benefits.

Was rather buried in the headliner of him breaking the 1st day fundraising record (without PAC, corporate, or special interests $$).

Beto O'Rourke raised massive $6.1 million his first day in the 2020 race, campaign says

https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/18/politics/beto-orourke-first-day-fundraising-record/index.html

The former Texas congressman raised $6,136,763 in online donations from all 50 states in the first day, his campaign said. That tops the $5.9 million one-day total Sen. Bernie Sanders announced after he launched his campaign. The closest other 2020 Democratic candidate to publicize their first-day fundraising total was California Sen. Kamala Harris at $1.5 million.
....
Still, a sign that his campaign had began with a massive fundraising haul came Saturday night when O'Rourke -- who is playing catch-up in hiring staffers as one of the last major Democratic candidates to launch -- told reporters in Dubuque, Iowa, that he would support his campaign unionizing, as Sanders had, and hoped to pay the highest wages and benefits of any presidential contender.

Beto explains his reasoning on every bill he supported or was against.

Yet another thing I really love about him. Good or bad, agree or not, he lays it bare.

”Joaquin Castro “All But Certain” to Challenge John Cornyn for U.S. Senate, Source Says”

https://www.texasmonthly.com/politics/joaquin-castro-challenge-john-cornyn-senate-seat/

Joaquin Castro, the Democratic congressman from San Antonio, “is all but certain” to enter next year’s race for U.S. Senate and take on incumbent Republican John Cornyn, a source familiar with Castro’s thinking said Thursday.

The move would profoundly change the dynamics of the 2020 campaign and put Texas squarely on center stage, with two Texans already in the Democratic primary race and Joaquin taking on a longtime Republican senator who many see as vulnerable, especially during a presidential election year.

“We’ll be making an announcement in the very near future,” said Matthew Jones, Castro’s campaign adviser.


This could be great news! Joaquin for Senate combined with a Beto for President could REALLY energize the Democratic Party vote for Texas this cycle. Each would feed the energy of the other.

A reminder, if Texas flips, it’s over for the Republicans. Beto on the National ticket put’s it in play. Now, with Castro throwing in to go against Cornyn, it’s even more so.
