Was it, perchance, an orange-headed New Jersey sap sucker?

Typical Trump MO when he says something that is so inappropriate or demeaning and disrespecting that it creates national outrage.

The very next day he goes  ALL CAPS TWEET BANANAS either claiming the comments attributed to him are total lies ( like this WWI soldier blurb) or his huge wag-the-dog propaganda machine creates a massive all out alternate reality media damage control counter blitz.

Regards Trump's crazy vote twice proclamation, dozens of Trump mouthpieces ran out to the cameras and appeared on political TV shows pushing the same desperate damage control line ...

uh...uh... He ( Trump) didn't actually mean to suggest his supporters vote twice this November 3rd which is a crime! He really didn't. No sir... no sirree.

Although that is "exactly" what their fearless leader said. 

Uh... what he "meant" was that they should just check to see if their mail in votes for him were actually registered. ... oh...Uh Huh!

And if hundreds of thousands if not millions of Trump's voters actually did what Trump asked them to do, and went down to polling places and tied up poll workers time and energy and effort checking their mail in votes, this would be a deliberate act of impeding the legal voting process for citizens actually there to vote in person.

So, this Trump vote twice suggestion is really one of voter rights suppression via tying up voting centers with frivolous time consuming demands blocking legitimate voters ability to do so. Isn't that another crime as well?  Should be.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, the House candidate and professed QAnon acolyte whom President Trump called “a future Republican star,” posted a photo of herself holding a gun she plans to raffle off, saying she wanted to go on the “offense” against the three Congresswomen known as “The Squad”—and her campaign said anyone who takes offense is “paranoid and ridiculous.”

“On Thursday, Greene posted a photoshopped graphic on Facebook that pictured her holding her AR-15 and standing next to three progressive members of Congress known as “The Squad”—Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) (after this story was published, Greene restricted users from seeing the image on Facebook).”

“In the caption above the graphic, Greene wrote that America needed “strong conservative Christians” to “go on the offense against these socialists who want to rip our country apart.”

 

God, guns and Trump. That's all it takes.

This is insanity, just insanity.

Buzzfeed is now referring to Q cult members as suffering from "collective delusion" rather than merely spouting conspiracy theories. Not sure if that is good or bad. It's certainly accurate, but I fear it will simply harden those pathetic, gullible souls in their beliefs.

"Local news station WCVB reports that four-term GOP state Rep. James Spillane wrote in a Facebook post this week that anyone who has a Black Lives Matter sign on their lawn deserves to have their house burned and looted.

“Public Service Announcement: If you see a BLM sign on a lawn it’s the same as having the porch light on for Halloween,” he wrote. “You’re free to loot and burn that house.”

The post has since been deleted, but that hasn’t stopped the New Hampshire Department of Justice from launching an investigation into his advocacy of violence against political opponents."

The Pentagon has ordered Stars and Stripes to shut down for no good reason

Trump wants to pull funding from Stars and Stripes, a newspaper for American troops that began in the Civil War and has been serving our soldiers.

By Kathy Kiely

Opinion contributor

“Even for those of us who are all too wearily familiar with President Donald Trump’s disdain for journalists, his administration’s latest attack on the free press is a bit of a jaw-dropper.

In a heretofore unpublicized recent memo, the Pentagon delivered an order to shutter Stars and Stripes, a newspaper that has been a lifeline and a voice for American troops since the Civil War. The memo orders the publisher of the news organization (which now publishes online as well as in print) to present a plan that “dissolves the Stars and Stripes” by Sept. 15 including "specific timeline for vacating government owned/leased space worldwide.””

“The memo ordering the publication’s dissolution claims the administration has the authority to make this move under the president’s fiscal year 2021 defense department budget request. It zeroed out the $15.5 million annual subsidy for Stars and Stripes. But Congress, which under the Constitution has the power to make decisions about how the public’s money is spent, has not yet approved the president’s request.

In fact, the version the House approved earlier this summer explicitly overruled the decision to pull the plug on Stars and Stripes, restoring funding for the paper.”

 

Our current president loves the military.

Ruth Ben-Ghiat on Trump and the bitter American truth: "We do not have a real democracy"

Trump is getting HAMMERED over this reported slander of fallen American soldiers.

 

Retired Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, America’s favorite airline pilot, is “disgusted” by the “current occupant of the White House,” he tweeted Friday in an uncharacteristic attack on President Donald Trump.

The easygoing pilot, who safely landed a crippled commercial airliner in the Hudson River 11 years ago to save every one of his 155 passengers, erupted over a report Thursday in The Atlantic about Trump’s shocking insults labeling fallen service members as “losers” and “suckers.”

As part of his nine-tweet attack, Sullenberger began by honoring his father, who, like him, was a war veteran. “His generation saved the world from fascism,” he wrote. Sullenberger, an Air Force veteran, volunteered for military service during the Vietnam War.

 

“I have long known that serving a cause greater than oneself is the highest calling, whether in the military or in civilian life,” he added in a following tweet. “And I have always tried to be a voice of reason and to speak in a measured way.”

But “this situation calls for a much more direct approach. It is time to call out egregious behavior for what it is,” he flatly stated.

“For the first time in American history, a president has repeatedly shown utter and vulgar contempt and disrespect for those who have served and died serving our country,” Sullenberger noted.

 

“While I am not surprised, I am disgusted by the current occupant of the Oval Office. He has repeatedly and consistently shown himself to be completely unfit for and to have no respect for the office he holds,” Sullenberger added.

“He cannot understand selflessness because he is selfish. He cannot conceive of courage because he is a coward.”

He concluded: “We owe it not only to those who have served and sacrificed for our nation, but to ourselves and to succeeding generations to vote him out.”

Sullenberger is a registered Republican who was approached by the GOP in 2009 about running for Congress. He endorsed Democratic nominee Joe Biden for president earlier this year.

Expert on the radical right warns that vigilantes are preparing ‘to launch a coup’

 Published4 hours ago on September 5, 2020

 https://www.rawstory.com/2020/09/expert-on-the-radical-right-warns-that-vigilantes-are-preparing-to-launch-a-coup/

 From the article:Reid warns that Portland, the right-wing vigilante killings in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and the hundreds of other attacks by right-wing extremists on Black Lives Matter protesters is just a preview of the massive violence that Donald Trump and his movement may unleash before and after Election Day — perhaps including the arrest or imprisonment of prominent Democrats, journalists, and others deemed to be enemies of the state.”

 

[Isn’t this what Mr. Wheeler has been talking about in this topic, indicating that he has advance knowledge of the plan of the radical right?]

From the article:

Trump’s “law and order” politics, and its inherent racism and violence, are believed by many to be his path back to the White House.

I mean, what is this about, anyway?  Turning the country to sh*t and bringing out Americans' worst impulses, so the GOP can have four more years in the Executive and Legislative, plus install some right-wing federal judges?  Except for the judges, everything that's trending so painfully now will be reduced or quashed under eight succeeding years of Democratic rule.  And any successes in social engineering were coming gradually anyway, without riding in on so much death and misery.  It's why I call this administration an insult and a calamity.
