Think You’re Confused Now
Hey it’s 2016 and America is about to choose its new President. At least that’s the assumption behind the election process.
The race as usual is vicious and drawn out over a year of endless debates where politicians contradict themselves and attack each other. But that is all to be expected plus balloons; it’s just part of the dynamism of the world’s greatest democracy in action.
So if you’re not sure who stands for what, let’s take a look see so you can make sure your vote counts on that first Tuesday in November.
First of all the media hates the two front runners, the Donald and Hillary, which is confusing because usually they guide you safely to the correct conclusion so you can vote with the majority.
“Emails expose close ties between Hillary Clinton and accused war criminal Henry Kissinger” slick online rag Salon tells us. http://www.salon.com/2016/01/12/emails_expose_close_ties_between_hillary_clinton_and_accused_war_criminal_henry_kissinger/
The emails are part of the daily news but Hillary is still out on bond. Can a convicted criminal continue to serve as President once in office?
Why not ? We have just dispensed with the silly and antediluvian idea that the American President should be an American. So why is there any reason he/she or it cannot run the country as a convicted criminal? Doesn’t this underrepresented class in America have the same rights as any other self-defined group in America?
On to the Donald. Trump loves everybody and most particularly the Jews having just finished the American politician’s annual prostration on Mt. AIPAC and the pilgrimage to The Wall. But he’s not fooling this nice Jewish lady correspondent, Phoebe Maltz Bovy, who ain’t buyin any of it. https://newrepublic.com/article/132072/donald-trump-loves-jewish-babies
In the following article she points out that Trump’s referring to his daughter as a woman, underscores how devious he really is.
“This is Trump at his most devious. Yes, yes, it was yet another unsettling allusion to his own daughter as a woman, but this time around that’s not front and center. He’s really saying that a vote for him is a vote for Jewish fecundity.”
I am a little confused here. I’m not sure how he should have referred to his Jewish convert daughter, Ivanka. Possibly as the President of the Trump Empire she will be running while he is running the U.S. But there you go, still stuck with those pronouns, got to do something about those pronouns. But at least, little Ivanka is Jewish.
And Trump loves the Mexicans, but they don’t like him either. He has promised to build a wall and put a door in it so they can walk right through it, so why can’t they just go along to get along?
In the following article, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/us-politics/11759669/Donald-Trump-I-love-Mexican-people.html
Ronaldo had this to say:
“Rolando Gonzalez, 69, an American of Mexican descent who served in the US Navy in the Vietnam war, told The Telegraph: "I don't like him. I think he's a bigot. He thinks every Mexican's a rapist but 99 per cent of people who come here are decent people who want to work and support their families."
But Mr Trump was unfazed and said: "I employ thousands and thousands of Hispanics. I love the people. They're great workers. They're fantastic people and they want legal immigration.”
Let’s Make America Great Again. And while we’re at it, let’s make it Mexico.
"I'll take jobs back from China, I'll take jobs back from Japan. The Hispanics are going to get those jobs, and they're going to love Trump."
Of course, they’re going to get those jobs. Americans don’t want them anyway. That’s why they live in cardboard boxes under bridges. It’s a lifestyle option.
And anyway as far as the Mexicans go, Hilary and Bernie beat him to it.
As you can see here.: http://www.progressivestoday.com/hillary-clinton-bernie-sanders-speak-la-raza-convention/
And let’s just it make perfectly clear that La Raza isn’t a racist organization. La Raza, in Spanish means, the race. But los mexicanos try to explain to los gringos that it means the people. But, wait a second, El Pueblo means the people. Pero hay que bueno, los gringos aren’t going to know the difference.
And La Raza supports only legal immigration, as it says on their website:
The “DREAM Act” and “American Dream Act” provide an opportunity for U.S.-raised students to earn U.S. citizenship.
The “DREAM Act” would allow certain immigrant students to adjust their status to that of a legal permanent resident
on a conditional basis for six years based on the following requirements:
▼ Age. Immigrant students must have entered the U.S. before age 16.
▼ Academic requirement. Students must have been accepted for admission.
So of course, they’re for legal immigration. Just make the illegals, legal with a stroke of the pen, and there you go, and it’s all kosher to boot.
As Miguel Perez of Cal State-Northridge’s MEChA chapter has been quoted as saying: “The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled — opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power.”
Maybe we just need to enter into a dialogue. As the Mehc ( Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA) says on their website, “For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada,”.
For the race, everything. Outside the race, nothing. But they don’t really mean it. Do they? We can dialogue. Let’s talk about it.
But you can’t always get it right the first time. And Trump does have friends. True supporters. Louis Farrakhan, for instance.
And what does Louis Farrakhan have to say about Donald Trump.? “I like what I’m looking at.” That’s what he has to say.
“Speaking at the black nationalist organization's annual Savior's Day in Chicago, Farrakhan told parishioners that he admires Trump because he believes the celebrity billionaire's purportedly self-funded presidential campaign isn't taking money from the "Jewish community."
Of course, he isn’t. He’s got his own dough. He’s just at AIPAC for the love. It’s all about the love.
And when he picks Ben Carson as his running mate, it’s going to be:
“Ivory, ebony living in perfect harmony.”
Sorry, that should read ebony and ivory. My mistake. I really do apologize. I forgot to check my white privilege at the door. I won’t do it again. I swear. I promise. I mean it.
Enough about the Donald.
On to Saint Sanders.
Oh wow, it is so time to get big money out of politics. Elect Bernie. He is disgusted with the corruption of big money in politics. Sanders got twice as much applause as Hillary at the La Raza Convention and why? Because he felt their pain, that’s why. And it tells you right here.
“Sanders speech to the nation’s largest Latino civil rights organization was notable because it confronted the “stain of racism”, his father’s immigrant experience and his own impoverished upbringing. . .”
Time to check your white privilege at the door, Hillary.
Now let’s tackle the distressing corruption of big money in politics. And this is what Bernie had to say.
"Our message to the billionaire class is, 'Your greed has got to end, and we are going to end it for you.' " - Bernie Sanders
But you know what. All billionaires aren’t equal. There are bad billionaires like the Walton family of Walmart Fame. And there are good billionaires such as Bill Gates, and George Soros. Tells you right here.
Bernie Sanders gets endorsement from Soros backed MoveOn.
But you know what, if Bernie doesn’t get to be President, maybe he can be the next Pope.
And that bring us right up to the minute in politics. “Why is Bernie Sanders in the Vatican and not in New York City?” asks CNN Politics on April 15. He’s there to fix global warming. Then why isn’t he going to meet with the Pope? He missed him this time because the Pope is on the isle of Lesbos saving Syrian refugees, whatever their sexual orientation.
And I sure hope you don’t think Bernie couldn’t be the next Pope. You’re not anti-Semitic, are you?
It’s hard to believe that Ted Cruz is still a presidential hopeful but he’s still in there swinging. It does seem though that his record is not entirely squeaky clean. Like the thing about having been born in Canada. But that’s only a misdemeanor.
According to this article, http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/articles/20160407
Ted’s dad might have been involved in the Kennedy assassination. Not that Ted can be held responsible for what his Dad might or might not have done. He was only a baby. Maybe he hadn’t even been born yet, which means he’s totally off the hook. That kind of depends on which dates his Dad was in New Orleans. And it also depends on when his Dad went to Canada; and when he divorced his first wife. And married his second wife, Ted’s mom. So it’s confusing so we better drop it. Anyway there's more than one way to get to be President.
You might just think that the fact the Bill Clinton was America’s first black President would put Hillary in good standing with black women but it isn’t so.
See this: http://matadornetwork.com/pulse/im-black-woman-heres-just-cant-support-hillary-clinton/
Right here it tells us that Bill Clinton was bad for black people because he wouldn’t let black criminals out of prison. But if American will only elect its first convicted felon as President, they wouldn’t have to worry about that anymore.
Good luck to all the candidates, and whoever wins, here’s hoping you can exit office alive. Hey, is this a great country or what?
