Bill Weld: "Trump Has Blood On His Hands" Re El Paso Terror Attack & "He's Going To Go Down Big Time In 2020" Because (In Part) Latinos Aren't Going To Vote For Him

The following words of Bill Weld (the 68th governor of MA from 1991-1997) were spoken on MSNBC's Hardball, 8/7/2019. Weld, a Republican who formerly ran on the Libertarian ticket as Gary Johnson's VP is currently running against Donald Trump for the Republican Nomination.

Chris Matthews: ...most [republicans] have remained silent on any responsibility on the part of Donald Trump and his fanning of the flames of hate in this country. But a lone Republican challenging the president, former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld, didn't hold back, writing on Twitter, [writing] "what will it take to stop the hate speech, stop the racist rants from the White House, and stop accepting the unacceptable?".

For more I'm joined by Bill Weld. ... Governor, what is this about? ... let's talk about this president and Latinos. He doesn't seem to want them in his party.

Bill Weld: Yeah, Chris. That's absolutely right. There is no longer any doubt that the president has blood on his hands. You can draw a direct line from that manifesto of the shooter in El Paso to the Trump handbook. ...I think it's fairly easy to see what's going to happen. If the president continues in the direction he's going - more and more unhinged - he's going to go down big time in 2020. And, I say this with mixed feelings at best, he's going to take a lot of Republican Party in Washington with him. ...they're going to suffer massive losses. ...

I think he and Steve Bannon decided... that their playbook is to divide the American people and get everyone all upset... then it will be easier for them to make their autocratic play. And say, here's our man on horseback coming to rescue all of us because everything is in such terrible shape. He reminds me of Big Brother in 1984 - 2 minutes of hate every afternoon to make people more malleable. At the end of the day that's what Trump is trying to do. I think... it's despicable, frankly.

[End Hardball 8/7/2019 Excerpt]

Hmm.. I sure hope Bill Weld is right. I feel like we've reached a tipping point. And that the American people have had enough of tRump's hate.

The Racist Rhetoric Of Donald Trump Acting As An Accelerant Re White Supremacist Violence

The following monologue from ex-republican Congressperson Joe Scarbourgh on MSNBC's "Morning Joe", 8/5/2019...

...anybody who has been following the news at all for the last 3-4 years knows that, we could - and we have - show clips this morning of the president of the United States inciting violence at his rallies. Talking about beating the hell out of people. Talking about paying [the legal fees of] anybody who beats the hell out of somebody. Talking about assassinating Hillary Clinton with what he called "2nd amendment solutions" to her appointing federal judges [had she been elected].

We could go down a long laundry list. We could also go down a long laundry list of what he's said about immigrants. Again, calling Hispanics "breeders", calling Mexicans rapists, calling women of Congress who oppose his polices un-American, saying that they should go back home. That is a NAZI sort of chant. It's what the NAZIs said about Jews and Gypsies. We saw it spill over into the crowd in North Carolina - chanting "go back home", "send her home".

Again, this it does not take a great imagination. In fact, it takes deal of denial on the part of any Donald Trump supporter, to not hear this continued hateful language. To not hear the continued warnings from people saying "this will lead to violence" - and then, to try to pretend that what happened in El Paso wasn't connected directly to the hate speech of Donald J. Trump.

[End Morning Joe 8/5/2019 Rant]

There can no longer be any denial of the fact that the racist and hate-filled rhetoric of (as I call him) Grand Wizard Dotard is inspiring White Nationalist violence. NONE. Morning Joe is correct. This flaming of hate by the leader of the free world is not something we (the majority that voted for HRC) should tolerate. Dotard tRump has GOT to go. The sooner the better. IMO Dotard is the worst president ever. Not just in my lifetime, but in the entire US history. He certainly makes the top 10. Easily.

"WikiLeaks, I Love Colluding With WikiLeaks" Vs "WikiLeaks? Never Heard Of It"

Come on, dude! Everyone remembers you saying how much you love WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign.

Hopefully this is bad news for Julian Assange who US authorities want to extradite to face charges here. Although I'm hearing he will fight it and it will be a long drawn out process. Wouldn't it sweet if we could get him to tell the truth about his collusion with Roger Stone? Perhaps we could hook his nads up to some electrodes and turn up the juice until he tells the truth*.

As per a 11/23/2018 CNN story, "Roger Stone exchanged text messages with his alleged WikiLeaks back channel about imminent big news harmful to Hillary Clinton's campaign six days before WikiLeaks released hacked emails from former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta".

Remember Michael Cohen, during his Senate testimony, said that Dotard was aware of the communication between Stone and Assange.

Michael Cohen: In July 2016, days before the Democratic convention, I was in Mr. Trump's office when his secretary announced that Roger Stone was on the phone. Mr. Trump put Mr. Stone on the speakerphone. Mr. Stone told Mr. Trump that he had just gotten off the phone with Julian Assange and that Mr. Assange told Mr. Stone that, within a couple of days, there would be a massive dump of emails that would damage Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Mr. Trump responded by stating to the effect of "wouldn't that be great". (Washington Examiner).

Apparently, "that Trump would call Stone in the wee small hours of the morning from a blocked number is no secret at this point". What were Stone and tRump discussing? Obviously Stone was filling tRump in on how the campaign could use the WikiLeaks material to their advantage. AKA they were discussing collusion with the Russian cutout WikiLeaks.

*Just kidding. I am opposed to torture. Which does not produce reliable intel in any case.

No Collusion Delusion

Dotard tRump did not collude with Russia? That's what Mueller says, despite the colluding we all saw with our own eyes and heard with our own ears. Except Mueller hasn't "said" squat, as all we currently know is what Bill Barr SAYS about what's in the (300 to 1k page) Mueller report. Wake up media! This is what Barr was brought in to do! Yet it seems the "fake news" is buying the Barr spin.


Cover-up? We'll know shortly, I suppose. In the meantime almost everyone is on board with Barr's summary of Mueller's report. Collusion delusion? No! It's a no collusion delusion.

Robert Mueller Finds That tRump Aided & Abetted Russian Attack On The 2016 potus Election

The following is an excerpt from the Saturday 3/23/2019 airing of msnbc's AM Joy in which host Joy Reid asks contributor Malcolm Nance a vital question regarding the recently completed (Friday 3/22/2019) report concerning the Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections from Special Council Robert Mueller.

Joy Reid: ...whether or not the president of the United States used help from a hostile foreign power to gain access to the White House, and whether that assecuture continues. Do you have confidence that Robert Mueller will tell us the answer to that, at least from the view of the Justice Department?

Malcolm Nance: Yes. I have great confidence that he's going to tell us that. I think he only has two options as to what he can tell us. Because there is an enormous amount of evidence that is already out there. He can tell us that [tRump] was either a handled Russian asset who had worked and willingly coordinated and conspired with Russia. Or that (what many other people suspect) [tRump] is a dupe. And that he foolishly found his way into this; stumbled through it; and did not really intend to do it, but used what he found to get himself elected president. That's it. Those are the only two options. Both of those are a betrayal of the public trust.

*skip*

David Corn: ...it's not just the crime. We already know the scandal. There's a scandal without crimes. It's what Malcolm has been talking about. It's betrayal ... whether [tRump] was an asset or not, he aided and abetted the attack. Whether he colluded or not, he helped the attack succeed.

Special Needs Predisent Orders Billions Of Dollars To Be Wasted On Idiotic "Space Force"

Our idiot predisent commands the creation of a Space Force. A brand new "separate but equal" branch of the military that (somehow) already has a budget of 8 Billions dollars (to get it off the ground, I'm guessing).

Video1: Songified video clips of DJT idiocy concerning his moronic idea to create a "space force" incorporated into a "theme song" by The Gregory Brothers (2:27).

According to predisent moron, when he first thought of creating a Space Force, "I was not really serious, then I said 'what a great idea'".

Video2: Kyle Kulinski rants on the insanely stupid and expensive Space Force being prioritized over healthcare and other urgent needs (10:27).

Video3: Tin-foil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorist says we already have a Space Force consisting of a fleet of space ships (reverse engineered from alien technology) known as "Solar Warden" (10:04).

Preznit #43 Highly Praised By Comedian Helen Hong On 10/20/2017 Airing Of The Stephanie Miller Show

The following is an excerpt from the Stephanie Miller Show (Friday 10/20/2017) in which executive producer Vanessa Rumbles, live in-studio guest Helen Hong and Stephanie Miller discuss a 10/19/2017 speech by former preznit George W bush. This was a speech in which gwb voiced criticisms of current predisent Donald Trump... without naming him (George W Bush condemns bigotry and lies in coded attack on Trump).

Vanessa Rumbles: He wrote the speech himself...

Helen Hong: No.

Vanessa Rumbles: ...and everyone around him told him that it might be interpreted as him talking bad about Trump, and he didn't care.

Helen Hong: I was just thinking about this. My block has a lot of dogs, so I see a lot of dog poop. If you see dog poop that's been sitting there for awhile and it's kind of dried out, it's less offensive than fresh dog poop.

Stephanie Miller: That's true. That's a very good analogy. George Bush is old dried out dog poop. You can't even smell it anymore.

Helen Hong: It's been sitting in the sun. It's dehydrated. It's harmless. And now, next to a steaming fresh pile...

Stephanie Miller: Steaming, fresh orange pile. It doesn't seem so bad.

Helen Hong: Well, I'm a poet.

(Video: gwb speech "Bigotry in any form is blasphemy". Referred to by Politico as a speech on Trumpism).

"Bigotry seems emboldened" the former preznit says. "Seems"? He acknowledges the obvious, at least. Something most Republican politicians aren't doing. Flake and Corker being the only other two I can think of. There might be others, although they remain largely complicit via their silence.
