From the New York Times:
Vice President Mike Pence has undertaken extensive personal outreach to donors, fueling speculation that he is preparing for his own political future.
And I don’t use the word lightly for Jesus Pence. He believes in the gay conversion therapy bullshit, the ‘religious freedom’/deny gay folks commercial rights, he’s a big fan of controlling women’s bodies.
He looks very reasonable, he’s got the gray hair, he’s a serious, thoughtful looking dude. The problem is he’s a fascist, a real one, not just one that has a big mouth and likes to urinate on people (we’re looking at you Donald).
Yes Trump is a train wreck, I get it.
However, if you take him out are you going to be happier with Mike Pence, a Christian fascist at the helm? Hates women, hates gay people, probably hates on Muslims very hard due to his hard Christianity.
How is that going to improve your life? I understand that Pence is not going to be as dramatic and draining but he could actually do more damage than Trump with his calm exterior.
That’s not an upgrade as far as I’m concerned.
From Bloomberg here:
“Mr. Sessions’s conduct as U.S attorney from his politically motivated voting fraud prosecutions to his indifference toward criminal violations of civil rights laws indicates that he lacks the temperament, fairness and judgment to be a federal judge,” Warren said, quoting a letter from the late wife of slain civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., who was discussing the 1986 nomination of Sessions to the federal bench.
Then the lizard from Utah Orrin Hatch admonished Warren to think of Sessions’ wife. I’m sure she’s perfectly aware of where he stands on race relations.
Now a personal attack would be to say he has a tiny dick, or his dad caught him around the back end of a greased pig when he was a strapping young man, or he likes to watch prostitutes pee on each other while he pleasures himself.
You get the idea.
From CNN here:
(CNN)Rep. Sean Duffy said Tuesday “there is a difference” between terror acts by white people and those committed by Muslims.
This is racist yo! A person murdered in a terrorist act is a person murdered in a terrorist act with no regard for the race of the perpetrator or the victim.
Saying that violence committed against Muslims by the U.S. government in our name is exactly the same as a shootup at a rock club in Paris.
Dead is dead and to say that white folks don’t use terror in this war on terror is straight up ridiculous.
“Inconsistency on the part of pastors and the faithful between what they say and what they do, between word and manner of life, is undermining the Church’s credibility,” the pontiff said in his homily.
You think so?
JERUSALEM — Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul paid a visit to the Western Wall Sunday night for his first stop on a week-long tour of Israel and other parts of the Middle East.
This joining of wingnut factions is new in my life time. I’m not sure what the religious aspect is — I think the Christian wingnuts have some belief that a second messiah is coming and that they want the Jews to hold down his landing pad. Something like that.
Regardless, the political implications of these two wingnut groups combining is not good as the wingnuts join forces to battle the forces of rationality and non-wingnuttery.
