Clint Watts Tells Why Trump Ignores White Nationalist Mass Killers: ‘Domestic...

Morning Joe Scarborough, who himself was targeted by the recently released Coast Guard wannabe mass killer, had former FBI agent Clint Watts on his show to discuss this dangerous segment of the Mango Misanthrope’s deplorable base and Clint also dropped the dime on why Trump never decries  RW mass killers: Raw Story ‘Former FBI counterintelligence agent Clint Watts has been sounding the alarm for years about white nationalist terrorism — and he scorched the Trump administration’s lackluster response to the growing threat. Watts appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss the Poway, California, synagogue shooting that left one dead and three injured, and he said these massacres were clearly linked — and deserved pre-emptive intervention, rather than just a reactive response. “What we do is wait for an attack right now, we go and see the damage and act like, ‘Oh, it’s just some bad apple,’” Watts said. “These are not bad apples, in fact, they know each other. They’re inspired each other and the pace has quickened.” Host Joe Scarborough, who has been threatened by a white nationalist Coast Guard officer, said the Trump administration has done “nothing” about this domestic threat, and Watts offered an alarming explanation. “International terrorists don’t vote, and domestic terrorists do vote,” Watts said. You can hear Watts’ theory below… (close captioned, title remark is at about 2:40 but the entire discussion is good) This is a terrible, frightening assessment of our future under this *resident. Democrats should immediately initiate the process, win or lose, to remove the arch fiend from the Oval Office, otherwise ordinary non-RWNJ voters may conclude that their lives mean as little to them as they do Trump. And that’s a place we do not want to be in, folks.

drumpf Will Not Bestow Teacher of The Year Award This Year...

(Above: The clear winner in all this, obviously, Teacher of The Year Rodney Robinson) The citrus colored colostomy bag will not be attending this year’s Teacher of The Year presentation, breaking a tradition that dates back to Harry Truman, and, for the life of me I can’t think of a reason why…/s. Politico “President Donald Trump is expected to take a pass on handing out this year’s National Teacher of the Year award honors — forgoing a tradition that dates to President Harry Truman. This year’s award winner is Rodney Robinson, a social studies teacher in a juvenile detention center in Richmond, Va. Robinson will be honored Monday by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on the White House grounds, a DeVos spokesperson said…” Of course to be scrupulously fair to the tangerine turd sack, which I always am, the opportunity to snub a deserving person of color may not be the birther bedpan’s only motivation, he may wish to avoid the humiliation he suffered at the hands of last year’s winner, a nice looking, obviously deserving white lady:  “Last year, Trump awarded the honor to Mandy Manning, who teaches English to refugees and immigrants in Washington state. At the White House event, Manning handed Trump a letter from a Rwandan immigrant student that urged the president to “take care” with his language about immigrant and refugee communities. She also wore a pin that read “Trans Equality Now.” Oh yeah, Mandy brought the heat last year: Good work, Mandy, you helped to insure no other great teachers will have to endure the indignity of of meeting the buffoon of buttwipe to receive their honor. Congrats to Rodney for dodging that bullet… And thank you, Mandy. You deserve another award for making that happen…. ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………… To receive articles of mine not published elsewhere become a patron on Patreon.

AOC Responds to Kellyanne Conway Attacking Her, “The Hill” Frames it...

(Above: *Not* Kellyanne but the brilliant Kate McKinnon’s stunningly accurate portrayal on SNL.) So, Kellyanne Conway stated on jake Tapper’s State of the Union earlier today that AOC did not tweet profusely enough about the church bombings in Sri Lanka on Easter day, after commenting on the Christ Church Mosque Bombing,  because she is insufficiently Christian or something. Below is the video, if you want to skip through her other lies she begins lying about AOC at about 3:25. After the appearance, someone called out Kellyanne (since deleted) on Twitter to which Theodora responded… I don’t know whom Kellyanne thinks “Easter Worshippers” would be if not Christians, but whatever… AOC set Kelly Anne straight. So who does The Hill accuse of making accusations? You guessed it. “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Sunday accused White House counselor Kellyanne Conway of using the church bombings in Sri Lanka as a way to “stoke suspicion” of the first-term lawmaker’s Christianity. “On Easter I was away from tech visiting my grandmother in Puerto Rico, which continues to suffer from the White House’s incompetent disaster response,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter after Conway called out the congresswoman’s “silence” on the attacks. “Are you trying to imply that I am less Christian? What was the point of you bringing this up on national TV?” AOC didn’t accuse her of shit. She said matter-of-factly that Kellyanne was using one of her patented alternative facts to stoke suspicion about her faith. This both-sider BS has to stop. Please follow me on Twitter @durrati

Rabble in Wisconsin Cheer as Trump Calls Obama Disloyal, Women Murderers...

(Above, Republican Senator Ron Johnson inciting the rabble) Mango Unchained is ramping up the crazy for his re-election bid, By the time next summer is here what insane crap will he be saying? Thanks to Aaron Rupar of Vox Media for braving this unhinged shit show to report. There is more in Aaron’s thread if you can stomach it. If this speech alone doesn’t make him worthy of impeachment, then we might as well flush the Constitution into the Potomac, folks. It’s as if drumpf fears he will not be re-elected and is doing his best to foment Civil War here before that happy day arrives. Please follow me on Twitter @durrati

drumpf Gushes Over White NFL #2 Draft Pick, Ignores Black #1...

Nick Bosa (above, left) played his college ball at Ohio State and was picked number 2 over all in Thursday’s NLF draft. Normally, in drumpfworld, anyone picked number two would be a looooser! But not if he is white, has attacked Colin Kaepernick, and was picked behind a black man, former Oklahoma Sooners QB Kyler Murray… Yahoo Sports “The San Francisco 49ers’ second overall pick in this year’s NFL draft has President Donald Trump’s seal of approval. Early Saturday morning, Trump hopped on Twitter and sent former Ohio State DE Nick Bosa words of encouragement following his selection by the 49ers Thursday evening. Congratulations to Nick Bosa on being picked number two in the NFL Draft. You will be a great player for years to come, maybe one of the best. Big Talent! San Francisco will embrace you but most importantly, always stay true to yourself. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! “The president offered zero congratulatory remarks for the number one overall pick and the Arizona Cardinals’ new QB, former Oklahoma Sooner Kyler Murray. Bosa famously called Colin Kaepernick a “clown” on Twitter in 2016, when the controversy surrounding the former quarterback’s decision to kneel during the national anthem began picking up steam. In his first remarks since joining his new team, Bosa admitted his past tweets were in poor taste. NFL.com reports Bosa said. “It’s not like I’m saying his stance and what he was doing, that’s not what I was calling or talking about at all. It was just a specific thing that happened and me as a young kid a thought popping in my head and boom, decided to tweet it out. Bad decision. I respect what he’s done. If it empowers anybody then he’s doing a good thing. So, I apologize for that.” Bosa has apologized for his remarks about Kap, was a young man when he made them, has since scrubbed them from his social media, and is no doubt a remarkable football player. I wish him the best. As for the Racist-in-Chief, I think these twitter users say it best for all of us: Ryan Hammon@ryanhammon  · 8h Replying to @realDonaldTrump And Congratulations to you for being picked #2 in the 2016 US President Draft!

Racist Keebler Elf Tells Amherst Students to “Accept the Results” of...

Former Attorney General and part time cookie maker Jeff Sessions Wednesday joined the liar’s chorus of Republican voices falsely harmonizing that The Mueller report exonerated Trump, when in fact it did not, but his young audience of Amherst college students wasn’t buying his half baked confections and walked out en masse. CBS News Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday said it is time to move past special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and “get on with the business of America.” Sessions urged confidence in the system during a lecture at Amherst College, a private liberal arts school in western Massachusetts. “The process was followed and a decision has now been rendered. I think it deserves respect,” he said. “I think it’s about time to accept the results and let’s get on with the business of America… He said Congress does have oversight power but he believes it is time to accept that Mueller declined to recommend criminal charges against the president. Some Democrats have called for impeachment proceedings against Trump in light of the report that left open whether the president broke the law. The event in a campus chapel was hosted by Amherst College Republicans, and it was interrupted numerous times by demonstrators who stood up in the front rows and walked out soon after Sessions began speaking. According to a student attending the event, the walkout was highly publicized throughout flyers on campus and on Facebook, and the students planned to do it five minutes into Sessions’ speech. It was a silent walkout, and a vast majority of the spectators left. The Johnson Chapel, which seats over 500, was left almost completely empty as a result.” Nice of the former chief law enforcement officer to admit that Congress that Congress does in fact have oversight power over his former boss, though he urges them not to use it. Left out of his talking points were the facts that Mueller failed to charge collusion chiefly because proof of collusion might that have been obtained but might have been had evidence not been deleted and obstruction, certainly, because he followed Justice Department protocol that holds that a sitting president cannot be indicted, effectively placing Trump above the law. And, of course, he whinged that conservatives cannot spew their invective efficiently enough at liberal arts colleges. Here’s video of the walk out: Students walked out of a talk by former AG Jeff Sessions, leaving nearly half the venue empty pic.twitter.com/6tnfXwzDph — NowThis (@nowthisnews) April 26, 2019   Good on ye, Amherst, I concur with this Now This follower: Hope they walk straight to the polls — Yohn B ☮️🌎 (@Gunnerak47) April 26, 2019  

Democrat Bre Kidman Wants to be First Non-Binary Gender Senator and...

Saco, Maine criminal defense attorney Bre Kidman wants to become the first Non-Binary/Queer Senator and they want to oust Susan Collins to do it. Susan Rice passed on the the chance at the nomination, and Washington County doctor Cathleen London has suspended her campaign… but Bre is up for the challenge. From her Campaign/Donations Page: “My name is Bre Kidman, and I want to represent Maine in the United States Senate. I’m not the kind of person most people think of when they envision a politician. I’m a millennial. I have never run for office before. I hate wearing blazers. I drive a dented 10-year-old subcompact that’s missing a hubcap. I am a pierced, tattooed, rainbow-haired plus-sized burlesque performer who buys most of their fast fashion wardrobe on clearance. I put the “Q+” in “LGBTQ+.” I live in an 830-square-foot house that was recently described to me as “probably not intended for year-round occupancy.” I had a medical marijuana card for a few years, when I needed it.  I have been naked on the internet. I have no interest in hiding who I was before I became who I am today. I may not be slick and polished, but I am smart and passionate, and I see the problems Mainers face firsthand every day. As a criminal defense attorney I make a little less than Maine’s median household income defending Mainers who are accused of crimes but can’t afford to hire a lawyer.  I am endlessly grateful for the chance to do that work. When I graduated from the University of Maine School of Law, I knew the only thing that I could rightfully do with the opportunity I’d been given was to find the people who were experiencing the most injustice and work as hard as I could to get them a fair shake. I love my work, but when I look at my clients and see the same issues coming through my door over and over again, lack of access to housing or healthcare or treatment for mental health and substance abuse, I know it’s not enough. As I sit in chambers with judges and prosecutors, all of us heartbroken knowing the treatment options necessary to break the cycle don’t exist, I know it’s not enough. I have picked clients up at jail after months of coordinating with substance abuse programs to get them a bed and physically driven them to treatment centers hours away in my busted little car… and it’s just not enough. Maine is seeing more than one drug-related death EVERY DAY and without top-down changes to how we address the contributing issues, one-on-one service providers like me will never be able to do enough. The same can be said for the state of politics in the United States. We can all scream at each other on the Internet about whose team did which ridiculous thing this week, but it doesn’t force our legislators to create solutions for the problems we face—or stop them from making laws that make our lives harder. We can read the full-text bills and resolutions our legislators are voting on and call their offices, but at the end of the day career politicians will always vote with an eye toward reelection, more beholden to special interests and their donors than the average voter. I was among those who traveled […]

Trump’s BFF King Salman, Beheads 37, Including Teen Once Slated to...

(King Salman above, second to right of Trump) Associated Press News “DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Saudi Arabia on Tuesday beheaded 37 Saudi citizens, most of them minority Shiites, in a mass execution across the country for alleged terrorism-related crimes. It also publicly pinned the executed body and severed head of a convicted Sunni extremist to a pole as a warning to others. The executions were likely to stoke further regional and sectarian tensions between rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran. Saudi dissident Ali Al-Ahmed, who runs the Gulf Institute in Washington, identified 34 of those executed as Shiites based on the names announced by the Interior Ministry. “This is the largest mass execution of Shiites in the kingdom’s history,” he said…. …King Salman ratified by royal decree Tuesday’s mass execution and that of 2016. The king, who has empowered his son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has asserted a bolder and more decisive leadership style than previous monarchs since ascending to the throne in 2015.” Among those put to death was this young soccer player… …who had been slated to attend Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. Detroit Free Press “Mujtaba al-Sweikat was 17 when he was detained at King Fahd International Airport in 2012. Earlier that year, Al-Sweikat allegedly attended a pro-democracy rally in the midst of the Arab Spring, which led to his arrest. He was intending to visit Western Michigan, where he had been accepted as a student, the university confirmed to the Free Press in 2017… …Sweikat was charged with armed disobedience against the king, as well as attacking,shooting and injuring security forces, civilians and passersby. He was also accused of destroying public property, causing chaos and disrupting the peace, by participating in a terrorist cell, to make and deliver Molotov cocktails.       During his time in custody, Sweikat was severely beaten all over his body, including the soles of his feet, and convicted on the basis of a confession extracted through torture, according to Reprieve, an international human rights group that has offices in New York and London and operates with partners around the world. After his arrest, he was not allowed to contact anybody for three days, and his family were not allowed to visit him for three months, during which time he was kept in solitary confinement, according to Reprieve.” Trump, Kushner and the State Department should immediately disassociate the U.S. from this barbaric regime and impose stiff sanctions on Saudi Arabia. But they won’t, as long as there is a possibility of extracting another dollar from them for Trump/KushnerCo. and using them as leverage in drumpf’s jihad against President Obama’s (in Trump’s words) “bad Iran deal.” They will issue a tepid condemnation, at most, and business will continue as usual. Just one more cost of having a sociopath in the Oval Office. (This post was created exclusively for PolitiZoom by Dino Durrati) Please follow me on Twitter @durrati
