AMONG THE MANY ASININE, INACCURATE STATEMENTS, PLAIN LIES

THIS IS JUST ONE AMONG THE MANY

Allegra Kirkland

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has been characteristically unapologeticabout his claim that “thousands and thousands” of New Jersey residents cheered as the World Trade Center fell on Sept. 11, 2001, even though contemporaneous news reports don’t support it.

And his insistence on that recollection, which has no basis in fact, shows just how expert he is at roping together conspiracy theories, urban legends, and rumors that lurk on the fringes of the Internet and bringing them into the mainstream.

Rumors of groups of people celebrating the attacks in “tailgate-style parties” popped up in national publications like The Washington Post and Associated Press, but were never confirmed as true. A highly publicized video of Muslims cheering and flashing victory signs on the day of the attack was shot in the Israeli-occupied West Bank of Palestine, not in the Garden State. A video of American Muslims celebrating the terrorist attack doesn’t appear to exist and none of the unconfirmed reports of such an incident comes anywhere near the scale that Trump describes.

I’ve been reading about these comments since this weekend. I just finished watching Rachel Maddow’s TV show for today, November 23. I would recommend that you look for the video on this particular topic.

I cannot believe that this is happening in this country. I cannot believe that no one is standing up to this man. There are those who cheer and egg him on. There are those who even believe him.

Again, I pity the USA.

Trump’s outrageous claim that ‘thousands’ of New Jersey Muslims celebrated the 9/11 attacks

“Hey, I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.”

THE FACTS

This is a bit like writing about the hole in the doughnut — how can you write about nothing?

Trump says that he saw this with his own eyes on television and that it was well covered. But an extensive examination of news clips from that period turns up nothing. There were some reports of celebrations overseas, in Muslim countries, but nothing that we can find involving the Arab populations of New Jersey except for unconfirmed reports. This claim has never been authenticated.

As the Newark Star-Ledger put it in an article on Sept. 18, 2001, “rumors of rooftop celebrations of the attack by Muslims here proved unfounded.”

NO PLACE FOR THEM

This Thanksgiving, No Place for Refugees at the American Table
Posted on Nov 18, 2015
By Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan

In the wake of the horrific attacks in Paris on Nov. 13, there has been a crushing backlash against refugees from the wars in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. As Americans prepare for one of the most popular national holidays, Thanksgiving, which commemorates the support and nourishment provided by the indigenous people to English refugees seeking a better life free from religious persecution, a wave of xenophobia is sweeping the country.

In the U.S. Congress, no less than six separate bills have been put forward to block any federal funding to resettle refugees from Syria or Iraq and to empower states to deny entry into their “territory.” 

Imagine if all of a sudden we had 50 “statelets” creating their own border checkpoints, stopping all travelers, looking for anyone suspicious, i.e., any and all Syrians.

So far, 31 state governors have essentially demanded this.

ThxG

Republican Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback issued an executive order forbidding any agency of state government from cooperating in any way with Syrian refugee support efforts. House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have called for a pause in the Syrian refugee program, with the support of Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer.

(all so called Chrstians)

It has been almost 400 years since that first, fateful Thanksgiving feast in Massachusetts.

Xenophobic policies like those threatening to shut out refugees from these wars, if allowed to stand, should serve as a shameful centerpiece at every Thanksgiving table this year.

PLAIN RHETORIC AND PURE LIES

Donald Trump — the post-truth 2016 candidate

by CHUCK TODD, MARK MURRAY and CARRIE DANN

We’ve been around the political block long enough to know that almost all presidential candidates exaggerate, dissemble, take statements out of context and, yes, lie.

But from the start of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign (remember Mexican rapists?), he has taken this to a level we haven’t seen before in American politics.

Consider just these two examples from the weekend.

First, Trump said on Saturday in Alabama:

“I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering.”

In fact, as the New York Times writes, “No news reports exist of people cheering in the streets, and both police officials and the mayor of Jersey City have said that it did not happen. An Internet rumor about people cheering in the streets, which said it was in Paterson, not Jersey City, has been denied numerous times by city and police officials.” But when ABC pressed Trump on his statement, he stood his ground.

“It did happen. I saw it … It was on television. I saw it.”

Second, Trump retweeted a graphic claiming — falsely — that African Americans are responsible for the killing of most blacks and whites in America. “That is not true, the Washington Post notes. “According to data from the FBI, most whites are killed by whites, as most blacks are killed by blacks.

There’s an obvious reason for that: Most people are killed by someone they know.”

I do not get it. I simply don’t. It’s not even a matter of which political party anyone is affiliated with or which beliefs anyone holds. I grew up in Puerto Rico, a colony of the United States but never the less “US land”. I was brought up thinking how great the US was …. as a country, as a leader, as an example to the world.

I cannot believe what I’m seeing and hearing now.

Any human with decreased number of brain cells can get what this “person” is doing and saying. There are no limits to his “statements”, nothing is off limits. He’s raised the “idiocy bar” so high that the other presidential hopefuls have no other option but to go along or even come back with more asinine statements. If they don’t, they will be left in his dust.

It’s true … this man isn’t an embarassment of this country. He’s an indictment of it.

I pity the United States of America.

(And I am an American citizen)

 LINDSEY GRAHAM DEMONSTRATES ‘HOW TO DESTROY YOUR CELL PHONE’ 

I’m not surprised anymore.

I’m kinda pleasantly watching the infantile, juvenile behavior of on of the the possible leaders of this country.

It’s better than stand-up comedy.

Always looking out for the next one.

Wondering who is going to out-do the other. Right now:

*CELL NO*

Lindsey Graham ceremoniously destroyed his cellphone Wednesday, just a day after Donald Trump infamously announced the South Carolina senator’s digits during a nationally televised campaign rally.

In a short online video produced by IJReview titled “How to Destroy Your Cell Phone With Lindsey Graham,” the 2016 candidate is seen comically testing a variety of ways to eradicate the device.

As classical music plays in the one-minute spot, Graham is seen taking a butcher knife to his phone, putting the phone in a blender, teeing off on the phone with a golf club, dousing the phone in lighter fluid and lighting it on fire, smacking the phone like a piñata, dropping a cinder block on the phone, baking the phone with pizza bagels and dropping the phone from the top of a multi-story building.

At the end of the video, Graham says:

“Or, if all else fails, you can always give your number to the Donald.”

“This is for all the veterans,” he adds.

~~WHY?~~

Trump Doxxes Graham on Live TV

Donald Trump revealed Sen. Lindsey Graham’s cellphone number during a televised rally in South Carolina. Graham “doesn’t seem as bright as Rick Perry,” Trump said before reading the number aloud. “Give it a shot.” The Daily Beast’s Betsy Woodruff reports that when called, the number goes to voicemail and a recording says that Graham is not available. Graham is also running for the Republican presidential nomination and blasted The Donald for saying John McCain was not a war hero.

PROUD TO BE A LIBERAL

Liberalism is a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality. The former principle is stressed in classical liberalism while the latter is more evident in social liberalism. Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally they support ideas and programs such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free markets, civil rights,democratic societies, secular governments, and international cooperation.

Liberalism first became a distinct political movement during the Age of Enlightenment, when it became popular among philosophers and economists in the Western world. Liberalism rejected the notions, common at the time, of hereditary privilege, state religion, absolute monarchy, and the Divine Right of Kings.

The 17th-century philosopher John Locke is often credited with founding liberalism as a distinct philosophical tradition. Locke argued that each man has a natural right to life, liberty and property, while adding that governments must not violate these rights based on the social contract.

Liberals opposed traditional conservatism and sought to replace absolutism in government with representative democracy and the rule of law.

TERM LIMITS NEEDED FOR CONGRESS

“I’d like to address our state of affairs about our U.S. congressmen and the multitude of people running for our president’s job in our next election in the USA.

None of them has the backbone to address term limits for all congressmen. It was the best thing we ever did when we made a two-term limit for the president of the United States.

The only thing the congressmen think about, who have been in over two terms, is what do I need to do to be sure I have a secure retirement and a medical plan for the rest of my life for doing nothing.

If we kicked out all the congressmen that have exceeded two terms, the new blood that would take their place could not possibly be any worse than what we have now.

I think anyone running for president who would put two-term limits on his agenda and mean it would be our next president of the United States.”

Something to think about …. How many Bushes??


Bush3

~~April 27, 2015~~ 

Jeb Bush is running for president in 2016, according to a somewhat garbled quote over the weekend from his son George P. Bush, who is running for Texas land commissioner this fall.  But just because Bush is running doesn’t mean he will win.

In fact, even calling Jeb the frontrunner is a drastic overstatement.

“The 2016 field is wide open for business and while Governor Bush will be a formidable competitor, he will not clear the field nor have an insurmountable lead,” said Dave Carney, a New Hampshire Republican consultant who served as a senior adviser to Rick Perry’s 2012 campaign.

“He will need to earn it much like his father had to in 1988.  One delegate at a time.”
