About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

Birtherism 2.0: Kamala Harris Can't Be President Because Her Parents Weren't Citizens

Let's get this out of the way: Jacob Wohl is a fucking moron. If you don't recall the name, he's one of the two masterminds behind the disastrous plot to discredit Robert Mueller with a made-up sexual assault allegation. It's not entirely clear why he's not in jail for this other than the possibility that he's so stupid he might accidentally kill himself trying to squeeze through the bars.




Look, we get it. Kamala Harris isn't white therefor there's just no way she can be a true blue American like Jacob Wohl! 'Murika!

Unfortunately, the Constitution goddamned well says otherwise:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

Kamala's parents could have been born on Pluto and Jupiter and arrived in the United States ten seconds before Kamala was born and it wouldn't make a lick of difference. She took her first breath on American soil? She's an American citizen. Story, end of.

So disappointingly predictable and I fear it is only the start

Democrats Hate Trump Because....



Well yes, but not JUST that!

WHERE'S MITCH: "Hungry" Unpaid Federal Workers Mob Senate Office Building And Wave Paper Plates

Federal workers gathered Wednesday at the Hart Senate Office Building to protest the ongoing government shutdown, which has left hundreds of thousands of them without pay.

The workers held 33 minutes of silent protest, or one minute for every day the shutdown has lasted. Protesters shook their fists during the protest and chanted, “No more food banks. We need paychecks.”

They also held paper plates with messages written on them, such as “open the government” and “federal workers are going hungry.” The plates were reportedly meant to symbolize that some workers can’t feed their families without pay.

Pressure needs to build on the wankers that are holding Trumps coat tails on this

Rick Wiles: Russia Investigation Is an English Plot to Reabsorb America Into the British Monarchy

“This may be entirely a U.K. intelligence-driven operation against Donald Trump,” Wiles said. “Why would Great Britain, why would the monarchy, why would the establishment of Great Britain want to destabilize the Trump administration? This is what it appears to be, because all of the tentacles of his Russia-gate story, it all goes back to Great Britain.”

“This country has been deliberately weakened over the last 70 years,” he continued. “Really since the 60s. Culturally, the invasion started in the 60s with British rock music coming into this country. Did we forget about that? The rebellion? The spirit of rebellions, drugs, it came from Great Britain.”

“The monarchy continues to see America as the wayward child,” Wiles asserted. “They’ve never officially recognized the American Revolution. There has always been a desire to pull America back into the fold of the British Empire … If they could bring the United States back in to being part of Great Britain, the British Empire, they would feel like they have accomplished a centuries-old plan.”

The Deep Ties Between the Catholic Anti-Abortion Movement and Racial Segregation



The modern Catholic anti-abortion movement was born in white enclaves and shaped by the politics of white flight and anti-integration activism. The sight of white Catholic teens wearing clothes emblazoned with Donald Trump’s racially inflammatory brand at the March for Life, marks a vital connection that has shaped modern conservatism and the Republican Party.

Racial politics undergirded the anti-abortion movement from the outset and continues to shape its imagery and concerns. The modern Catholic anti-abortion movement emerged in the early 1960s in response to heightened agitation by legal and medical organizations and mainline Protestant and Jewish groups for abortion law reform. Crucially, this organized anti-abortion activism was cradled and nurtured in white Catholic enclaves in and around Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Detroit, and New York City (among other places) and at the height of white flight. Covington Catholic High School is part of this history. The overwhelmingly white campus is mere minutes away but cordoned off from the predominantly black public schools of downtown Cincinnati.

All of that LOL
He is a horrible man.

Judge Ridgeway rules AGAINST Mark Harris. He will not order the NCSBE executive director to ....

....certify Harris as the winner

Next step comes January 31 when a new NCSBE will go into effect. That board can then call for an evidentiary hearing where all of the evidence will be laid out #NC09 #ncpol @wsoctv


Democracy prevails!

Where the fuck has the gravitas gone?

Just asking.
I despair.
