GOP Politics Posting Tree (Yielding Vile Fruit)

It is time for a quick hit reminder of American conservatism and its political party. We call it the GOP Posting Tree which is basically a gallery of various posts from Facebook and Twitter.
The posts require little to no introduction and show the state of conservative politics during a period when the nation needs real and mature political leadership.

The GOP and Americans who subscribe to US conservatism should know by his positions, this next candidate isn’t going very far in his quest for GOP candidacy in 2016.

The fact that John Kasich is doing as well as he is in the Republican primary is pretty encouraging.

Did you expect a day to go by without fresh conservative insults. The interest site that banned Trump based on his “blood” remarks entertains viewer posts that read like this: Hillary as “Homely Woman” Who Slept “Her Way Into Power.”

Oops how did these two get in the tree?  Yes, of course our tree has a nut-wing.

Liberals Unite is reporting on a U.S. News and World Report  story about a GOP candidate for the 2016 nomination has been ordered to stand trial on abuse of power charges. Rick Perry again makes US History.

Dennis Rodman endorses Donald Trump for the GOP nomination in 2016. How about a Mediaite look at Rodman’s past endorsements. Trump should be proud and happy about the endorsement.


Here’s a List of Every Politician Endorsed by Dennis Rodman

Trump Rodman

Have you ever been in a state of partial or total intoxication and wondered to yourself, “Say, exactly which politicians has former NBA starDennis Rodman endorsed?” Well, wonder no longer.

In 2014, Rodman became the first person to ever say I love Kim Jung-Un without a Kalashnikov pointed at the back of their head. 

“I am not going to sit there and go in and say ‘hey guy, you’re doing the wrong thing’,” he said of the North Korean dictator. “That’s not the right thing to do. He’s my friend first. He’s my friend. I don’t give a sh*t.”
“I tell the world: he’s my f***ing friend, I love him.”

2. Vladimir Putin

“You know, he’s actually cool,” Rodman also said in 2014 when he met the autocrat during a trip to Russia. “I’m not going to say – I’m not talking about politics, I ain’t about politics…this was my first time meeting him. He just walked in shook my hand and left with all his people. I just stayed there and had a good time at his restaurant.”

3. Donald Trump

It what is likely an embarrassment for the first two names on the list, today Rodman also endorsedDonald Trump.

@realDonaldTrump has been a great friend for many years. We don’t need another politician, we need a businessman like Mr. Trump! Trump 2016

Your conservative social media at work. During a recent campaign speech Hillary Clinton forayed into perceptions of race. She frankly stated that there are “well meaning” white people who experience fear at the sight of a black man in a hoodie. 

The Federalist posted 13 seconds of the speech for opportunity to disparage Clinton from a couple of perspectives.

https://youtu.be/ib_VIGWFufk

While one perspective of “questioning” from the writer related to the flak a conservative would catch for posing such a comment is probably valid, additional concerns are typically conservative. A key factor related to the 13 seconds is no conservative would “go there.” Why? Clinton used the words “well meaning.” When it comes to social America there are few “well meaning” white conservatives when it comes to matters of race. Actually, for black conservatives, I do not find acceptance of racial/social America. They work far too hard for acceptance by the 92% whites who comprise their party. They will suppress their innate feelings of such issues or they factually clone their white counterpart to the extent, they literally share the bigotry and racism.

The classic example.


Article Excerpt

Kevin Jackson: America Needs A White Republican President
In an article on his blog, The Black Sphere, Tea-Party activist Kevin Jackson opines that intra-racism has intensified in the United States since the election of President Barack Obama and, because of this, the nation needs a White, Republican president.

Point, Do you think for one second Jackson would find any less “fear” of the black guy in the hoodie than his 92% party comrades?

Whether a liberal experience such fear vs. a conservative is irrelevant. Clinton’s point is spot on.  Race in America has moved from quasi-tolerance to an open are of social divide. The divide isn’t a reality based on liberal or progressive America. Articles like the Federalist piece actually feeds the divide while taking a slap at the front runner Democrat candidate for 2016.  

Clinton is addressing an American social disease while conservatives hide and avoid clear and increasing manifestation of racial animus among their ranks.

The GOP never once paid any attention to Albert Einsteins cogent quote: “Doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result is insane” (paraphrased). Maybe, Once the resident leaves office the GOP in Congress will get back to the reality of federal governance and stop the charade of deflection and misrepresentation. 

Apparently, John Boehner has gone on record blaming President Obama for the nation’s lack of cohesive and focused progress on immigration.

Perspective.  A woman who cares not about the impact of “her flag” on millions across the nation. She only cares about having her heart gutted.  How conservative of her?
What morning read would be complete without a good dose of Bill O’Reilly feeding his minions. O’Reilly like Trump is a carnival barker. They know what they offer inside their respective tents is not as they speak.They embellish, they demonstrate and they lie. He bloviates, he leans, he points and he even ticks off his false mantra via the tips of his fingers.

Is this how the front running GOP candidate will carry the campaign to his opponent?  Also, have you notice any formal and universal response from the GOP  You won’t! 

  

Former George W. Bush’s speech writer Tweets about Serena Williams and quickly deletes the Tweet.  What we have here is an extreme case of poor judgment, coupled with clear racial animus and salted with a lack of backbone. If one is to pursue such vile pursuits why not live with their actions. 

Ye of poor judgment and no backbone!

Donald Trumps’s fastidious racially charged campaign strategy may bode well with the many of the GOP’s 92% white membership.


America’s conservatives, pundits and politicians seemed have adopted a politicking issue that is sure to backfire.  You have to know Limbaugh’s support means it is good for corporate America and bad for the everyday worker. 

The data is atrocious….. as “facts are pesky things.” 

Whether you support organized labor or not, the data illustrates.

Jeb Bush would force you to work more hours before eligibility for over-time pay. Barack Obama and the Democrats (with exception for Blue Dog fake Dems) want to expand over-time pay to middle managers. What side are you on with this issue? It will impact your family and neighbors without a doubt. 

While Donald Trump is leading the GOP through chasing the American People, these men are leading a nation.

Klayman: Obama Must Be ‘Taken Alive’ For Bringing Ebola To America To Afflict White People

SUBMITTED BY Brian Tashman on Tuesday, 10/14/2014 10:40 am

Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman has filed a lawsuit against President Obama for “providing material support and aid to international terrorism and facilitating terrorism” by not implementing a travel ban on people from countries facing an Ebola outbreak. 
Health experts have advised against enacting a travel ban, explaining that such a move might actually increase the risk of an outbreak, but Klayman has his own idea as to why the Obama administration hasn’t enacted a ban: anti-white racism. 
Klayman writes in his weekly column that “Obama has favored his African brothers over the rest of us by allowing them free entry into this country” and “relegating whites and others who are not black or Muslim to the back of the bus has become an invidious form of reverse discrimination. This was not right when blacks were subjected to this treatment, and it is not right now – particularly given its deadly implications.”

Does Klayman have a scientific explanation of how Oabma’s strategy to infest white people with Ebola will be deployed without real prospect of infesting African- Americans, Latinos, Asians and Original First Nation native Americans? 

Would you like to see the impetus behind the recent surge in conservative media oozing over Ebola.  

Washington Post-ABC News poll 

Excerpt 

While 65 percent of the respondents say they are concerned about a possible “widespread” U.S. epidemic, nearly 8 in 10 with a high school diploma or less education say they are very or somewhat concerned. Among respondents with advanced degrees, about 4 in 10 say they are concerned. Just over 6 in 10 white respondents say they are concerned, compared with 74 percent of nonwhites. And while majorities of all partisan backgrounds express concern about a U.S. epidemic, Republicans express significantly more worry than Democrats.

When the demagogue earns millions via spewing fear, EBOLA is the “Perfect Storm.

Fox News reporter pleased his management team and producers, but drew scorn from another Fox personality.

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren sharply criticized Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes for “very bad taste” over tweeting petty attacks on the president in response to the deadly crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.
Starnes has tweeted that Obama isn’t “interested” in the crash because it doesn’t involve “beer or golf,” “Russia bracing for a severe hash tag from the Obama Administration,” and “Obama won’t comment on Malaysian jetliner crash until he’s had a chance to read tomorrow’s paper.”

Huntington Post on the opportunist Limbaugh as he feeds his flock of sycophants.

Excerpt

The radio show host called the disaster “an opportunity” for media outlets to distract viewers from the controversy surrounding President Obama and US border security. He suspected that CNN had already swept the immigration crisis under the rug andretreated back to its “wall-to-wall” coverage of the plane. 

Limbaugh called the whole thing “very eery.”

_____________________________________

We offer a finale that doesn’t poke at the the pathetic state of conservative America. During a segment of yesterday’s The Cycle, Krystal Ball and Cycle producers efforts to perform emergency studio news broadcasting fell victim to a prank caller. 

We do not criticize Krystal Ball for the live (on-air) prank.  Susceptibility to such subterfuge is inherent in media effort to “one-up” the competition with “scoop” coverage. Since, some of you spend time listening to Jock shows like Stern’s show, the name also falls on you.  Trash begets trash and trash was taken to a new level when we consider the deaths of 200 plus innocent people.  While, we have taken our criticism outside the realm of Right-wing ignorance and feeding garbage to viewers, we do feel there is a conservative lean towards the prank call.  Let’s face it, the prank caller didn’t make it on Fox News. Of course, we do not know if the caller attempted to invade a Fox News broadcast. 


Limbaugh Has Issues With The Academy Awards And This Years "Best Picture"

In Limbaugh, The Raw Story on March 3, 2014 at 4:15 PM

  
It should have been anticipated. Limbaugh has issues with the Academy Award of Best Picture to “12 Years A Slave.” 

   

I ran into the indented text below on Facebook earlier today.  Opinions are great. We are fortunate to have opportunity to deliver them and even more fortunate to have opportunity to share them. Now, while the business of the Academy Awards is something I hold in contempt based in my refusal to partake in any form of  “‘star-worship,” I recognize others differ and find the arena comparable to the Super Bowl, Stanley Cup or the World Series.   

Basically, if I provide them millions via aggregate ticket sales, I will be damned if celebrities will occupy me in any other way. Entertain me for millions (in return), but no award worship for this curmudgeon. 
Upon hearing that “12 Years A Slave” won the Award for Best Picture, I seriously anticipated comment. Of course, I will admit to being a bit remiss in anticipating the reaction of the guttural Limbaugh. I expected more like the following:

Gravity was an extraordinary film, but I could have bet you money that it wouldn’t win Best Picture and Sandra Bullock would not win best actress. There is a political nature to who and what wins, and they were not politically in the running.

“A political nature to who and what wins, and they were not politically in the running.”

Interesting. The movie Gravity was a cinematic feat, much like Avatar. The movie, on the other hand, seemed to fall way shy of a Best Picture and, it darn sure did not warrant Bullock nor Clooney as “Best” anything.  Clooney’s ” I know you love me,” (paraphrased) lines were anticipated and fit well within the Clooney mystique. But, Best Picture?   Before I move to Limbaugh, let me say I rarely miss a Bullock Movie and I never miss a Clooney movie, so there.


Limbaugh? Can you recall the word “slavery” used nearly as much as since the Inauguration of Barack H. Obama in January 2009. By inference, it is not the Left who has grab the institution of human bondage and early capitalism gone wild, for headlines, ‘dog whistles’ and “red meat.” While I personally do not understand the affinity, I am also not a conservative with membership in a party that is 92% white. So, the affinity is beyond my comprehension other than as identified above: fodder for the feeble-minded.

Herman Cain Is Back. Did he Say He Might Run? [ Wrong Party Herm ]

In black conservatives, Dick Cheney, Fox News, George w. Bush, Herman Cain, Limbaugh, RNC, Sarah Palin on December 11, 2013 at 5:24 PM

Not only Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney and George W. Bush emerged from virtual hibernation to reap the fruits of the 2014/2016 election cycles, another has burst into the sunlight: Herman Cain.


Yes, Cain has comeback to the cameras and seeking a place in our psyches as both political parties start to line-up their potential candidates for 2016. My thoughts on Cain were published here in 2011 and we need say much no more than we had hoped he would melt into the world to AM Radio.  Let’s be real, he cannot stand like Sarah Palin, as “smug-faced and dense as granite”, but we surely hoped his cerebral constipation and oral diarrhea was a thing of the past.

Oh , the extent to which we were wrong.

He has arisen, grabbed a camera on Fox News and reminded us of why we cringed with every inane utterance from the man.  The following segment is about 3.50 minutes longer than it should be, but we are unable to extract a sub-clip. We are posting the segment to provide you with clear evidence Cain’s issue are long-term and he was not simply posturing for the cameras in 2011 and 2012.  The man is clearly missing a few critical pieces of gray matter.

Our specific interest is the portion of the clip at which he chastised the RNC for publishing a list of potential candidate for the GOP presidential ticket.  He exclaims, “….they are all white.”  Let’s view the clip and I will comment on the other side.


Direct Link 


First things first, the Koch brothers, Fox News and Limbaugh (along with Beck) Are the central authorities in the Republican Party.  Without question eve member of the GOP is beholden and subservient to one of more of the aforementioned. Or, they run form any level of criticism and, or, scorn that might emanate from those who command media audiences. Thus, if they do the bidding of the demagoguery and the money-brokers, we ask why does O’Reilly not feel that is a central authority in the GOP? 

More important, does Herman Cain actually not realize he is affiliated with a political movement, party and paradigm that is anti-diversity.  Surely, he has to understand the reality of a political party with a racial composition of 92% white people. Such numbers are not in an way coincidental.  Why do people like Cain and other “Black Conservatives” (since they general avoid the words “African-American”) fail to realize that 96% of Africa -Americans hold the GOP in contempt for a reason?  

We often show this image. And, we will continue to do so as it is a validating statement about how Cain’s party feels about black people.  Is the African-American community in the eyes of the GOP as we often posit, “The Invisible Negroes?” 


Is it possible Cain doesn’t realize the website outreach omission of African-American was intentional? The [point should be clear.

The GOP is not about the business of tolerance, diversity and inclusions.  Any minority visibility with the party has a strategic purpose and that purpose is grounded in subterfuge.  Michael Steele is the perfect example. Within weeks of Barack Obama’s inauguration for this first term as president, what did the GOP do. Party power-brokers pulled Steel from the basement and gave him a mission, “Go get us some respect in the black community.” The GOP also gave the nation Sarah Plain as a tool to combat the Democrat nomination of Barack Obama to head their ticker.  All said the latter from the GOP has turned into a national embarrassment and social horror story, not a surprise from the GOP.

Did you like me wonder about Cain’s judgment in even mentioning a man who was discharged from the US Army under less than honorable conditions (West)?  What about his judgment (or desperation) in reaching for the disgraced Ben Carson as a possible GOP presidential candidate?

Ultimately, how insane is Cain to even imagine the GOP will allow an African-American as presidential candidate in the 21st Century? 

During the run-up to the 2008 General Election, I read a message on an AOL message board that is emblazoned in my grey matter. 

“White people will never elect a nigger president.” 


Of course, the writer had a point as evidenced by the overwhelming exhibition of racism towards the nation’s 44th President since before he took office. His comments have also been validated via GOP efforts to suppress the votes of African-Americans an Latinos. Yet, the dim-witted writer underestimated the intellect and social views of the majority of Americans (albeit it a very small majority).

That said, I feel very comfortable in my thoughts the GOP will not allow a black man or woman to head their presidential ticket until the natural changes in US demographics catches up with the Jurassic Era GOP.

Beck and Limbaugh Claim JFK; Mario Piperni Is Not Buying It!

Conservatives Claim JFK As One Of Their Own

Republican politics for Dummies   :   http://mariopiperni.com/

Why am I not surprised by this?

As the nation mourns the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, conservative media figures have attempted to appropriate his legacy and attribute to the beloved former president their conservative ideas and positions. This effort runs counter to Kennedy’s stated positions, speeches, and other historical facts surrounding his presidency.

Is there a shortage of heroes on the right that they now have the need to appropriate liberals and claim them as their own?

What this is really about is that Americans have given JFK an 85% approval rating – the highest ranking among modern day presidents – and there is no way the right could allow that to stand without a fight. In any case, let’s allow the good citizens of Dumbfuckistan the opportunity to voice their thoughts on Kennedy and why they believe he was not really a liberal.

Glenn Beck:

“Who was John F. Kennedy? He has been co-opted by the left…if you could bring back the politician that JFK was, he wouldn’t be accepted by the Republican Party because he would be a Tea Party radical.

Limbaugh:

“[Kennedy] was not in any way a liberal as you know Liberals today…Kennedy was not a big believer in the Civil Rights Act.”

Some Boston Globe winger:

“Kennedy was no liberal. By any reasonable definition, he was a conservative” and that “Today’s Democratic Party — the home of Barack Obama, John Kerry, and Al Gore — wouldn’t give the time of day to a candidate like JFK.”

And on it goes, even though Kennedy was not shy to shout out his liberal creds…or even though a “Wanted for Treason” poster of Kennedy was circulated in and around Dallas in the days before that fateful day in November 1963.


Sorry guys, you’re going to have to be satisfied with your deluded Reagan heroship. John F. Kennedy was an intellectual who would have been repelled by the sheer ignorance of today’s Republican/Tea Party – a sorry excuse for a political party overflowing with sociopaths and clowns. I’d love to know what JFK would have thought of Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin and Louie Gohmert and Rand Paul and Rick Santorum and George W. Bush and Rick Perry and any number of crazies that have turned the Republican party into the laughing stock of the world. I’d think that Kennedy would sooner pluck out his left eye than be associated with any of these dumbasses.

Here’s a thought…any chance that in 2063, Republicans will claim Barack Obama was the country’s first black conservative president?
