headlines –Trump being sued for inciting attacks at rally, judge did not dismiss it.

That would be ALL his statements. The dude incites his minions to be rabid fanatics who attack other Americans for simply not supporting the Thief in Command. Also blanket condemnation of all foreign nationals, immigrants, Blacks, Indians, “mexicans” and by … Continue reading

Flynn Finally Flea-Flicked? Freakin’ Fantastic! but why Petraeus?

I guess the shadow President prefers loyalty to the Imperialist Agenda rather than loyalty to the American people, but that was predicted long ago anyway. Also performance and ability aren’t factors. Petraeus, you might remember, in 2007, was the subject … Continue reading

Hillary walks into Chipotle, orders a “burrito bowl.” Haha. How about a soup salad?

The New York Times reported the story about the presidential candidate slumming it with her constituents without any hint that they caught the disconnect. It may not be Bush Senior marvelling curiously at a barcode scanner or Bush Junior referencing … Continue reading
