A BUCKET, A BASKET … ANY DIFFERENCE?

It’s always best to look for humor in any situation you find yourself in.

Bucket, basket … basically the same.

I say:

‘If the shoe fits, wear it’!

There’s always truth in jest.

At a fundraiser Friday night, September 9, Hillary Clinton made a distinction between Trump supporters who fall into what she calls “the basket of deplorables” — racist, sexist, homophobic or xenophobic, Islamophobic, etc.

Those supporters who are none of those things but have anger about their situation, and feel economically abandoned by the power structure in politics and government.

WHAT IS ALEPPO?

How to hit an important topic?

These last 72 hours of this presidential campaign have been beyond disturbing and concerning.

There’s always a bit of remedy with humor.

It’s ironic and sad that this topic about Aleppo can be made into something funny.

This is so only because of Randy;s take on it.

Gosh, I need some humor!

Randy Rainbow is back with another hard hitting interview, this time with Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. Like many political observers, Randy is trying to understand how Johnson does not know what Aleppo is yet expects to be taken seriously as a presidential candidate.

While Randy needs a little help on the facts about Aleppo from his producer, he’s not running for president.

A bit taken aback by Johnson’s now infamous ‘What is Aleppo?’ retort, Randy asks the pro-marijuana legalization politician whether he may be a little…out of sorts.

The pair then play a game of political jeopardy which, Randy jokes, “is exactly what your campaign is in right now.”

Johnson’s answer to every question?

~~SERIOUSLY~~ 

Aleppo is a city in Syria, serving as the capital of the Aleppo Governorate, the most populous Syrian governorate. For centuries, Aleppo was the Syrian region’s largest city and the Ottoman Empire’s third-largest, after Constantinople and Cairo. With an official population of 2,132,100 (2004 census), it was Syria’s largest city and also one of the largest cities in the Levant before the advent of the Syrian Civil War.

Aleppo is Syria’s largest city and the country’s industrial and financial centre.

For the first year of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, Aleppo saw neither the large-scale protests nor the deadly violence that shook other towns and cities.

However, it suddenly became a key battleground in July 2012, when rebel fighters launched an offensive to oust government forces and gain control over northern Syria.

But the rebel advance was not decisive and Aleppo remains divided into opposition and loyalist-controlled sectors, with some parts of the city changing hands on a daily basis.

Commander in Chief Forum …. “Last night …. What the heck was that? …. “!!

~~September 8, 2016~~ 

WATCHED THE FULL HOUR FORUM

I was waiting for this event.

I had it penciled in my calendar since it was announced.

I didn’t know Matt Lauer was going to be the moderator.

As I watched, I thought … is it me?

Seems that I wasn’t the only one who found Lauer’s ‘peformace’ lacking.

Even lacking more than the presidential candidates.

Here’s a video from today’s ‘Morning Joe” show.

I agree in part and I disagree in part.

‘Donald Trump is held to lower standards.

Hillary Clinton is held to double standards.

Matt Lauer sucked!

~Matt Lauer Fields Storm of Criticism Over Clinton-Trump Forum~

It was a high-stakes political moment, far from the chummier confines of the “Today” show and, for Matt Lauer, NBC’s stalwart of the morning, a chance to prove his broadcasting mettle on the presidential stage.

The consensus afterward was not kind.

Charged with overseeing a live prime-time forum with Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton – widely seen as a dry run of sorts for the coming presidential debates – Mr. Lauer found himself besieged on Wednesday evening, September 7, by critics of all political stripes, who accused the anchor of unfairness, sloppiness and even sexism in his handling of the event.

The Commander in Chief Forum was an embarrassment, but still enough to disqualify Trump

The idea for the Commander in Chief forum seemed decent, but two things utterly wrecked the evening: the half-hour slice given each candidate was inadequate to discuss substantive issues; and Matt Lauer.

Most of that fault? 

Matt Lauer

Lauer started his interview by sandbagging Hillary Clinton, interrupting her first answer with a lengthy “question” about the email server that was both unrelated to the supposed topic of the evening, and weighted with built-in scorn up to and including the idea that Clinton’s non-crime was “disqualifying” of her candidacy. Before Hillary could complete her answer to this are-we-really-going-to-do-this zinger, Lauer interrupted her again. With another email question. Then he did it again.

Watching a replay of the affair, it’s not that Matt Lauer interrupted some of Hillary Clinton’s answers. It’s that he interrupted all of HIllary Clinton’s answers. Repeatedly, he leaped in mid-sentence, first to spew out ‘questions’ that were actually lengthy position statements allowing no obvious response, then to break in and remind Clinton that they were running out of time when she tried to beat Lauer’s words into an actual question. Lauer displayed a level of disrespect and antagonism to Hillary Clinton that wasn’t just unprofessional, it was punchable.

Even when Trump was producing a running stream of non-connected thoughts, Lauer sat back until Trump had come stumbling to a halt. He didn’t challenge Trump’s flat-out lies, and several times handed the Republican candidate open-ended questions with an intellectual challenge between “what’s your favorite color” and “how cool are puppies?” Lauer never hit Trump with anything remotely equivalent to emails – nothing about his taxes, his failed business deals, his 3,500 lawsuits, or the handy bribes that made some of those lawsuits go away.

GoldSwirlttGoldSwirl

Overall he treated Trump like a respected businessman, while addressing Clinton as if she was a PA assigned to warm up his coffee between floats in the Macy’s parade.

And still …

Without the much-scorned teleprompter that has kept Trump modestly on-track in recent speeches, what was revealed – again – was a man so utterly devoid of tact, truthfulness, or information that anyone watching should have seen enough to know that Donald Trump as president would be a catastrophe of dinosaur killer scale.

Something to think about …. “Kate del Castillo … Mexico …. “!!


KateC

~~September 3, 2016~~ 

THE IRONY

This Mexican woman can’t enter her country.

In the meantime, this racist is allowed to visit the country, meet with the President.

And he “spits” in our faces while in our own house.

GoldSwirl

The film and TV actress, who famously brokered Sean Penn’s ‘Rolling Stone’ interview with drug kingpin El Chapo, told Spanish-language broadcaster Jorge Ramos from Univision that she’s terrified to return to her native Mexico.

Actress Kate del Castillo braved a face-to-face meeting last year with one of Mexico’s most fearsome drug lords, yet it’s the Mexican government whom she fears the most nowadays.

“You hear it when you go in. In everything, I know that I’m completely wiretapped,” she told network anchor Jorge Ramos. “I think (the tapping) is by the Mexican government, I’m almost positive, but I don’t know it for a fact. But I know it with all my heart … because I hear noises that I didn’t hear before.”

The big question is why the Mexican government might be trying to persecute her, as del Castillo claims.

Ramos suggested that the government might be scared that El Chapo revealed incriminating information to her about Mexican public figures during their six-hour secret meeting in the mountains.

LATE SHOW EXCLUSIVE … APOLOGY ACCEPTED?

I think not! 

By now, I strongly believe that, if they didn’t, the whole world now knows who Ryan Lochte is.

He’s not a secret weapon of the USA anymore.

How many people were watching the Río Olympic Games?

That many and more know who he is and not because of his career in swimming

but rather because of the “robbed at gunpoint fiasco” story he fabricated.

I call it LYING …. there’s no other word for it.

I saw his interview with Matt Lauer and didn’t buy what he was telling the public.

His teary eyes didn’t move me.

Then again, that’s my personal opinion.

I follow a dear friend who posted an excellent article about this.

I strongly agree with my friend.

I will cite some of his words and I will include link so that you can read his excellent post.

In spite of the seriousness of this situation, it’s always good to see some humor.

This humor is as the expense of the ludicrous, pathetic excuses offered by the

“creator of the fabrication”.

Leave Stephen Colbert to do that.

~Ryan Lochte Epitomizes White Privilege and U.S. Foreign Policy~

The harrowing tale of American Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte and his fellow athletes being held up at gunpoint and robbed in Río de Janeiro by men disguised as police officers was all the rage in the media last week.

Not surprisingly, there was no shortage of excuses made for the cherished American Olympic athletes.

“These kids tried to have fun,” said Rio 2016 Olympic spokesperson Mario Andrade. “Lochte is one of the best swimmers of all time. They competed under gigantic pressure. Let’s give these kids a break. They had fun, they made a mistake, life goes on.”

Rio

Following the European colonial playbook, Lochte played on the perceptions his countrymen have of Brazil and Latin American countries in general as having nothing more to offer than crime and poverty.

The same way the white Christian settlers demonized the Indigenous Americans as “savages” and Donald Trump demonizes Mexicans as “rapists”, Ryan Lochte essentially demonized the inhabitants of Río de Janeiro as nothing more than a bunch of thieves.

In this way he is the perfect representative of his country’s foreign policy, showing no respect for international standards of decency, behaving as if we are the “exceptional” nation, caring nothing about other cultures, and fabricating evidence to make the U.S. appear an innocent victim while those we invade and oppress are tarred with a brush of criminality and terrorism.

Naked Donald Trump Statues Populate American Cities

Nate Hopper

An anarchist collective distributed the life-size likenesses in very public locations
In New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Cleveland, life-size statues of Donald Trump in the nude stand in public. They were placed there by the anarchist collective Indecline, which among other projects has also glued the names of black men killed by police officers onto blank stars in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Trump project is titled after a genital omission each statue shares, “The Emperor Has No Balls.” It’s an escalation of Hans Christian Andersen’s 1837 parable about a ruler so overconfident that he believes he’s wearing the world’s finest clothes, even when parading in the nude through his realm, beneath “his splendid canopy” — until a child breaks his delusion.

The artist who constructed the statues goes by the name Ginger and is a regular keynote speaker at haunted house conventions.

He told the Washington Post,

“When the Indecline organization approached me, it was all because of my monster-making abilities.”

According to the Post, he spent 25 hours weekly since receiving the commission in April, and worked through 300 pounds of clay and silicone, to construct the statues.

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.
