The Party of Crazy People

  • I was watching on YouTube this morning an installment of the old game show, What's My Line, which was hosted by the legendary CBS  News reporter, John Charles Daly. Every week they would have a mystery celebrity guest; The panelists would blindfold themselves and would have to guess who the celebrity was. On this particular program the mystery guest was the iconic Senate Minority leader (1959-1969), Everett Dirksen of Illinois. Dirksen was the type of Republican that long ago ceased to exist; although essentially a conservative, he was not an extremist by any rational argument. He was perfectly capable of reaching across the aisle in order to come up with a reasonable compromise. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 would not have been passed without him. Although they were of different parties, his relationship with Democratic president Lyndon Johnson was close and amiable. They might have publically bickered at times, but they're "feud" was more akin to a Jack Benny/Fred Allen radio routine.
Watching that program made me wistful for the time (which I am barely old enough to remember) when that party was inhabited by the likes of Millicent Fenwick, Margaret Chase Smith and Barry Goldwater. Yes, I said "Barry Goldwater". As undoubtedly conservative as old Barry was, he could not be elected today as the Yuma, Arizona sewage inspector within the toxic atmosphere today's Republican Party. Things have gotten that weird.

If you are one of the few people who've been reading this site from the its inception, you know that back in the George W. Bush years, I had nothing but utter contempt for #43. At the time, I thought that the executive branch of our government could not sink any lower or get more extreme. I was wrong, of course. Eight years after leaving the White House, along came Donald Trump. 

This morning I was reading a piece on the internet where Dubya warned  his fellow party members that "G.O.P" does is not an acronym for "White Anglo Saxton Protestan". His stark warning was that the party of Abraham Lincoln will never again win a national election until it gets it act together and cleanses itself of the imbeciles and criminals that have hijacked it in recent years. I never dreamed the day would come where old George would become one of the few voices of reason among the Republicans. His place in history is a little less tarnished this morning.

Addressing a gathering of Republicans the other day. Mitt Romney was literally jeered off of the podium. At this moment, the right wing extremists in the House of Reprehensibles are attempting to destroy the political career of Liz Cheney. Their crimes? They refused deny the undeniable fact that the 2020 election was won (quite fairly and quite squarely) by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. That is a party that should make even those of us with a below average IQ tremble in fear and loathing. That is a party that needs to disappear forever.

A party crazy enough to nominate for the office of president of the United States an incoherent fool and sociopath like Donald Trump is capable of just about anything. This isn't even remotely funny any longer, folks. This is serious. 

Where have you gone Everett Dirksen?

Yesterday, CNN's Jim Acosta skewered FOX Noise for its constant dissemination of propaganda and lies. This is a segment that must be seen and shared by all. He promises that - from this day forward - he will refer to it as "THE BULLSHIT FACTORY". 

 Here is a link to watch his remarkable commentary on YouTube:

Bravo, sir.


Gallant Men
by Senator Everett McKinley Dirksen

This is a record that Senator Dirksen cut on Capitol Records in the 1960s, a few years before he passed away:

Listen to that voice! His detractors used to refer to him as "the wizard of ooze". Other than the president, his was the most recognizable voice in American politics in his time.

The GQP is a cult.

The festering new confederacy of emboldened white nationalism is not only Trump's treasonous legacy. They are dangerous enemies of truth, decency, and our Constitutional republic. They pose a real and present threat of imminent and violent civil unrest.

This rising rebellion of racists and purveyors of Trump's Big Lie must be put down.

At 2:06 PM, Blogger Just the Facts! said...

Explain then Senator Tim Scott. The ONLY black Senator? A member of the GOP from a conservative former slave State. Who called Senator Scott a racial slur, conservatives, republicans? Why it's the same kind of people who call a black employee of Rush Limbaugh a "House Negro". Explain how Obama was elected twice by the majority of white voters.

Explain how this is the fault of "white nationalism" and the GOP?

Is this an example of how to put down the "rising rebellion of racists and purveyors of Trump's Big Lie"? Looks rather violent to me.

"Racism is not dead, but it is on life support kept alive by politicians, race hustlers and people who get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as 'racists."

Former governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney, did he beat Obama in MA?
OOPS, no, he did not, just another false canard from Dave.

McCain won 55%% of the white vote or in other words Obama won 45% of the white vote and 97% of the black vote. So how did Obama win? Who voted for Obama...Dave seems to not know that the election of a president is NOT based on popular vote by the votes of the Electoral College.

I presented facts to prove this is a lie.

Vern's revised position: "McCain won 55%% of the white vote or in other words Obama won 45% of the white vote and 97% of the black vote."

I guess he showed me...what a liar does when caught in a lie. Or does he not know what "majority" means?

Vern won't admit he has a Confederate flag, so he projects his racism again.

"Trump is not president."

At least he accepts that fact. But Trump is still the leader of his radical Right party of insurrectionists. Look what happens to Liz Cheney for telling the truth about Trump's treasonous terrorists.

Media Bias/Fact Check (MBFC) is a website founded in 2015 by editor Dave Van Zandt. The website has been described as an amateur effort to rate news media sources based on factual accuracy and political bias.
The Columbia Journalism Review describes Media Bias/Fact Check as an amateur attempt at categorizing media bias and Van Zandt as an "armchair media analyst." The Poynter Institute notes, "Media Bias/Fact Check is a widely cited source for news stories and even studies about misinformation, despite the fact that its method is in no way scientific. Alexandra Kitty, in a 2018 book on journalism, described MBFC as an apparent "amateur/civic outfit" and wrote that its founder's only qualification was a degree in communications.

This sounds like a classic case of dementia, where someone stitches together completely different events from their life into one story. It’s sad, and I don’t like mocking Biden for legitimate issues like this.

But what I absolutely hate is that he was sold to America as a healthy 78-year-old man who was raring to go, when we all knew that Biden was having mental problems. We all saw it, but the media refused to talk about it because they had such a hate-on for Trump. And now we are stuck with a president who might not know who he is in a couple years and we’ll end up with President Kamala.

Then Vern whines: "McCain won 55%% of the white vote or in other words Obama won 45% of the white vote and 97% of the black vote. So how did Obama win?"

More details are emerging about the Michigan governor’s multiple trips to open and free Florida while she keeps her subjects on lockdown in Michigan.

Where to start …

The report says Governor Lockdown traveled multiple times to Florida to visit her “elderly father” while at the same time admonishing her own subjects to stay home because, you know, it’s too dangerous out in the world for them without a vaccine or baby wipes.

While Whitmer released vaccine benchmarks and encouraged residents to get shots, she was NOT vaccinated upon traveling to Florida for four days. The jet she flew on, a Gulfstream G-280 twin, took her from Lansing, Michigan to West Palm Beach, Florida. Two weeks after getting back from her trip, Whitmer made a point to tell Michiganders to stay home.

Has to be due to Jim Crow.

More pointless hateful whataboutism from JTF, as usual.

Michigan is not in lockdown. Racists are also pathological liars.

On the heels of Trump's Twitter attacks last April, armed right-wing militias broke into the state Capitol and engaged in a standoff with police inside the building. Outside, some anti-shutdown protesters displayed violent images of Whitmer, including one dark-haired doll dressed resembling the governor with a noose around its neck.

This is the hate JTF is fanning.

Terrorist sympathizer JTF is till drumming up hate for the woman his fellow radical right Trumpists planned to kidnap and murder. Mighty "Christian" of him.

Was there a ban on travel to Florida that we don't know about? No.

How is visiting a sick father anything like Lyin' Ted's dashing to Cancun during a lethal weather crisis in Texas? Whatabout that?

Whatabout Trump's Tulsa spreader rally that killed Herman "No Mask" Cain? Crickets.

Funny how that doesn't bother the resident racist here. But he wants us to think the woman he demonizes and was targeted for murder is the real problem.

But that hate is just fine with Radical Right White Republican Jesus, amirite?

From USA Today, I noted far right publication, I'm sure. LOL

WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden was fielding his fourth question from a reporter after delivering remarks on the pandemic last week when he apologized to the press corps.

“Look, I’m sorry. This is the last question I’ll take,” Biden said. “I’m really going to be in trouble.”

In trouble? Really?

In fact, yes, White House press secretary Jen Psaki divulged in a podcast interview this week.

Psaki told CNN’s David Axelrod that the communications shop frowns on Biden’s willingness to engage with reporters who shout questions during Biden’s public appearances.

“That is not something we recommend,” Psaki said. “In fact, a lot of times we say `Don’t take questions.’ ” It also means staying away from controversial issues like the surge of migrants at the border. BIDEN'S mistake.

Why are they afraid of Biden speaking? Who is it that he will be in trouble with if he answers questions? Who is in control? It's Friday which means Joe gets fish sticks for dinner. Bedtime by 9:00p.m.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) bristled during a series of questions Thursday about a private plane she used to secretly travel to Florida in March.

Just days before she announced that residents should forego travel to the Sunshine State for spring break, Whitmer traveled to Florida for four days in the name of visiting her ailing father.

News broke Thursday she used the plane of a group of Detroit businessmen and she did not appear to appreciate the line of questioning during a press event on infrastructure:

WATCH: @GovWhitmer Refuses To Answer Who Paid For Private Plane For Controversial Florida Trip #migov pic.twitter.com/5neLOgbgE3

— Michigan Rising Action (@MIRisingAction) May 6, 2021

“They say you went to Detroit businessmen to ask for their private plane to go to Florida to see your Dad. I wanted to give you the opportunity to respond to that report. Who paid for that trip when you went down to Florida,” the reporter asked.

“I’ve said everything I’m going to say about my trip to go check on my father. It was a quick trip, it was an important family, uh, reason for doing it and I’ve got nothing to add,” Whitmer responded.

“This issue, governor, is your office has been very secretive about it. So the question is, why so secretive about it?” he continued.

“We don’t discuss my travel,” Whitmer answered. “I’ve received an incredible number of death threats over the last year and a half. There are a lot of reasons that we don’t discuss how I travel and when I travel and that’s all I’m going to say,” she continued.

But the trip occurred nearly two months ago and Deadline Detroit reported Whitmer’s office did not contact Florida law enforcement, suggesting her personal safety was not an issue during the jaunt.

When a staffer asked reporters if they had any “on topic” questions related to roads, the journalist asked again about the secret trip.

“Can we at least hear the dates of that travel?” the reporter asked.

“I’ve told you I’ve said everything I’m going to say,” Whitmer snapped.

Whitmer traveled over a period of four days — March 12 through 15 — not the two days she previously claimed.

All those death threats are from Trump supporters. Real threats. This relentless hate fuels more death threats.

So what if she went to visit her father? What does it even matter?

Just for following medical advice in a pandemic, American neo-Nazis and white nationalist Trumpists want to kill her.

Trump's cold blooded white nationalists and corrupt party of insurrection are the greatest threat to our democratic republic.

Fake Christian JTF Vern is just adding more hatred. He is one of them.

What is wrong with those people?

They have no conscience. No decency. No honesty. No compassion. But we're to believe them when they say they are "Christians"? They are 100% authoritarians.

Just don't call them fascists. They are as Christian as Hitler's SS. His Gestapo banned abortion to expand the "Master race". And banning abortion is all American fake Christians stand for these days. Apart from their intense hatred for everyone else. They trust, believe in, and serve Trump over Christ.

By their fruits (Lies, hate, insurrection) we know them.

So Sybil quotes Bill Maher because he holds the Dems to a high standard...

Notice Sybil NEVER EVER posts ANY Republican doing that for their party?

I wonder why?

The GOP is already down Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower and yes, even Reagan. THeir "heroes" are now grifters, traitors, liars, pedophiles, and insurrectionists.

Once again, Sybil tries for a slam dunk...ends up tripping over his own tiny pecker and dropping the ball.
