    How far down the rabbit hole are we going to go before dems in Congress can/will make this person go away? I feel more and more doom coming. This SCOTUS choice is so opposed to democratic/ American values… just like all of Trump’s choices/ decisions. How are we even allowing a white supremacist to run our country?? I just cannot shake that off.

    my thoughts on the illegitimate potus’ SCOTUS announcement and all the evil stuff he has put the world through:


    ….. one day, the US received the unexpected news that scalia had died …..

    …..I believe that one morning we will wake up to some shocking news which will have significant political implications for the rogue rule of the homegrown demagogue

    …. with that predicted political shockwave, there will be a change in the current trajectory of this nation and world.

    ….. call me morbid but the first thing I did when I could look at the computer again, after the hate election, was look up the ages of gop senators in swing states;

    … remember what Sir (Saint for Catholics) Thomas More is reported to have said to Cromwell : “Death comes to all …. even to kings”

    one repeated full quote :


    Sir Thomas More to Cromwell:

    ” Death . . . comes for us all, my lords. Yes, even for Kings he comes, to whom amidst all their Royalty and brute strength he will neither kneel nor make them any reverence nor pleasantly desire them to come forth, but roughly grasp them by the very breast and rattle them until they be stark dead! So causing their bodies to be buried in a pit and sending them to a judgment . . . whereof at their death their success is uncertain.”


    so when things look dark, we can only expect that the sun will one day come out and what a glorious sun it will be

      I am with Ari Berman, 100%! Democrats in the U.S. Senate must use all means necessary to reject any one Trump nominates! This must be done to teach Republicans that their illegal and unethical obstructionism have consequences! On this issue, Democrats must not compromise!

      • February 1, 2017 at 2:07 am

        Here is another compelling reason why Democrats must say NO to Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, and especially an extreme right wing nominee: The majority of Americans voted against Trump! Trump may have won the presidency because of the antiquated and undemocratic electoral college system, but he didn’t win the mandate of the majority of Americans! Consequently, he must not be allowed to impose his extremist right wing agenda on the majority of Americans who voted against him. Senate Democrats, who represent the majority of Americans, must stiffen their resolve to reject Trump’s right wing Supreme Court nominee!

    I have unrequited feelings about this ad. Maybe I’m being overly sensitive, taking into consideration all the batshit crazy that’s come at us in the last 10 days — sheer hate of immigrants (meaning those of color), sheer hate of refugees (meaning those of color), etc. Because of the devastating history of US, I had a deep sense of disquiet.

      GOP has already stolen the Presidency. Democrats better not let the GOP steal this SC seat.

      • January 31, 2017 at 10:33 pm

        McConnell didn’t allow a SITTING PRESIDENT to DO HIS FUCKING JOB, and got away with that criminal act.

        And people really believe he won’t pull the nuke-option?

        Even Rose-Colored-Eyeballs-Me can see that coming. McConnell is so twisted, I’m surprised he hasn’t declared Dem votes illegal, and not to be entered into the Congressional Record.

        I don’t believe McConnell will allow any more elections that he could lose. The country allowed McConnell to set fire to our government. And we’ve yet to call the Fire Department. He’s as bad as Trump – get away with whatever the fuck you want, until someone physically stops you, or sues you for $25million.

        We’re also allowing the CONGRESSIONAL intelligence Committee to “investigate” Russia fucking us – which I don’t believe Mitch will allow to actually happen because he was personally in on Putin’s “FIX”, otherwise, there would be a special prosecutor already appointed and we’d be hearing about it.

        Stop taking these MOBSTER MONSTERS word for things. All they do is LIE. Every last one of them including McCain and Graham. Fuck them ALL.

        They HATE this government because it doesn’t allow them to legally embezzle from all of us directly. So they’re going to torch it, so they can.

        I feel like Sherlock: “How can you all not see this?”

            The Let’s Play Chess one? I’m reading it now…. I’ve been saying FOREVER, that the story on Snowdon isn’t the nonsense he leaked… it’s WHO THE FUCK got him a 6-figure job with TOP SECRET GOV clearance, and he’d never even finished a single university class…. and that he contracted Poitras and Greenwald BEFORE ever setting foot on Booz property….. so who INSTALLED him at Booz? No one – not even Poitras and Greenwald, asked those questions – so they’re probably Russian spies too. Fuck the lot of them.

              I love the way you are thinking, simply because you see what is happening. I know President Obama says it will be alright, but what else could he have said? The way I see this is that if the gop and white house are not afraid to allow a foreign govt to influence a US election then honestly the people need to give them a reason to fear them.

              I wish I could believe the protests alone will succeed, in the long term it will not simply because they are not afraid, they do not care, they will do whatever they want to do and remove whomever they want if they complain too much or refuse to abide by their illegal pronouncements.

              People need to wake up to this and realize that this battle must also be on all fronts with a few surprises thrown in to counter this administrations shock and awe campaign. The longer this administration remains, the more entrenched they are and the worse things get.

              Soon many will grow weary of the protests and focus on putting food on the table, should the economy tank which is more than likely, that in itself will create its own problems and disunity. If anyone is waiting for the Dems to fight like the Reps usually do then I say to you as kindly as I know how, please do not hold your breath.

              The key is the people, President Obama cannot be seen as fighting this administration directly or indirectly for his safety and that of his family as well.

              • February 2, 2017 at 3:32 pm

                Exactly. Did you read the entire article – the Chess one? https://patribotics.wordpress.com/2017/01/17/dear-mr-putin-lets-play-chess-louise-mensch-trump-russia/

                Sure it’s a wordpress blog – but all of her stuff is backed up with legit links – which is AWESOME.

                Note that both Hillary and Obama, and most people from the previous admin are laying low…. very interesting about the NYC FBI Field Office vs the FBI Counter-Terrorism Office.

                This feels like we’re all starring All The President’s Men II, and just read a report from Deep Throat.

                I honestly think we’re about to experience the biggest scandal this country has ever seen, which is why they’re wagging Iran’s tail at the moment….

      This priest does not represent the Catholic Church. Pope Francis does, and these bishops. The US Catholic Bishops have been sending out alerts the last two days publicizing their opposition to Trump’s EO.

        February 1, 2017 at 12:05 am

        Totally agree. So proud of all of the bishops and priest and nuns who are speaking out – LOUDLY – following Pope Francis’ example. Some of us said in earlier times that President Obama and Pope Francis seemed to both come along just as the world needed them … nobody predicted how bad 2017 would be, but I’m so glad that social justice is moving slowly but surely across the land and in parts of the world!

        I’m not even Catholic, and this enrages me.

    • February 1, 2017 at 2:20 am

      I am not Catholic, but I have family members and very good friends who are Catholic. All of them are appalled by Trump’s cruel EO banning innocent Muslims refugees freeing from war and persecution. All my family and friends who are Catholic would be repulsed by this priest!

      From the article:
      On Tuesday, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), chair of the House Republican Conference, told Republicans in a private meeting on Capitol Hill that an “active criminal investigation” was underway and that police were close to determining the identity of the intruder.

      “Leaks from internal member discussions are unacceptable,” she said, adding that “these conversations are intended to allow members to candidly discuss how to address the issues facing the American people.”

      YES these leaks are unacceptable to these GOPers…oh but the wiki leaks on Hilary and the DNC? Provided by the Russians? Why does someone not ask them that simple question?

    Friends, the whole world is watching our mass demonstrations and they are touched. They know that real America rejects the evil of Trumpism. Read this from an Iraqi who became convinced that Americans really do care about people like him because he saw the demonstrations for refugees and immigrants.

  29. February 1, 2017 at 3:20 am

    From Fr. James Martin S.J. who has been very active since Friday on the net attacking Trump’s Refugee ban and pointing out how un-Christian it is.

    • February 1, 2017 at 3:25 am

      He’s citing Matt. 25 there in which Jesus directly addresses that judgement at the end of life is entirely dependent on whether you did something to welcome the stranger, helped the poor, “Whatsoever you did to the least of these you have done unto me.” The theology of this is that the Muslim refugee IS Christ. Pope Francis has said this also many times, for example, “In the refugee and the immigrant is Christ waiting to be discovered.” Few of today’s so-called Christians in America own this theological doctrine or act on it, or accept that the matter of their salvation at the end of life is dependent on what they have done for “the least of these.”

    Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr., one of the nation’s most prominent evangelical Christian leaders, has been asked to head a White House task force on reforming the U.S. higher education system, the Virginia college told NBC News on Tuesday night.

      Upon seeing Trump being deposed in a trial after he was elected it seemed he was unfamiliar with the contract either not having read it or not remembering what it said. I bet he has for the most part in his business life just signed whatever his people have put before him. That could be another reason he wants his family inside. Incompetency, insolvency and insanity!

    So, I was encouraged to hear that PM Trudeau’s office asked Fox News president to either remove or correct their tweet about the Quebec shooter’s ethnicity and religion. Fox apparently removed the tweet. Interestingly, although other news sources also jumped to the same conclusion about the shooter, the PM’s office only directed such a request at Fox. I’m wondering if it is because they knew their request would be seen by far more people that way – and specifically by people who *need* to see it (Fox followers) as well? In any case, I truly hope that my PM comes out far stronger against all of tRump’s “policies.”
