GOP Sen. Bob Corker Says Trump's Volatility Could Spark 'World War III'Page 3 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
my impression is that you don't like people in general.

others think people foolish for supporting the clinton gang and rotten for the constant anger and hatred of your countrymen and president that is exhibited regularly and carried around.

i find you just a hurt soul who needs some loving.
it doesn't make you rotten..
disagreement is not hatred.

. . .
as if people who don't hate Trump care what Trump haters think of them.


"worship" of a political figure is what leftists do. i don't know any people on the right who worship Trump or Reagan.
i have visited many houses with a photo of kennedy and one of obama next to jesus.

Peope found Trump the better option given the options.
That is all.

Hawking, the bottom line is we agree that there are people on either side that are not good people. I think the problem I see with you is your hatred of Kj. I know you have met her in real life and supposedly things went fine as far as enjoying. But now, since she supports the President, you have utter disdain for her. We can all go back over posts and see that while she likes things he is doing, she also has stated things she does not like and in no way supportive of certain things. I don't see her as a racist or any other derogatory name you will use. With that being said, that is where I question your words. I only go by what you say.

"worship" of a political figure is what leftists do. i don't know any people on the right who worship Trump or Reagan. i have visited many houses with a photo of kennedy and one of obama next to jesus.

This is actually an interesting article on political religion/worship/cultism: https://www.the-american-interest.com/2017/05/11/the-trump-cult/



Trump’s most ardent supporters are . . . remolding their own views to keep pace with their leader. . . .?This shows the extent to which Trump’s rise was not based on any particular positions or views. It was and remains a cult of personality. Trump’s followers worship him—and he worships himself, too. They are bound by a conviction, rooted in basically nothing but quasi-religious faith, that he is a singularly tough and savvy dealmaker who will protect American interests in a way that no previous president has done.


The article goes on to say the reasons behind this type of phenomenon (and it's not something new only unique to the Trump political era), more than anything having to do with uncertain times - which the world and the States in particular, is/has been experiencing more strongly in the past few years.

Someone get John a cigarette, all this recent talk of licking, he really wants something to be in his mouth.

Cham, thanks for that article link, its another thought-provoking idea you've brought to the forum. Trumpets do indeed cry about how their world has changed, that they don't recognize America anymore, and they want to bring it back to what it used to be. It should also be said, when Trumpanzees are done with their pied piper, they will cast him aside for a new idol to worship. Golden calf, indeed.

Perhaps Bannon spotted this going on, fanned its proverbial flames, and now is hoping to become the next golden calf for the "good people" to worship. Except that among the candidates he's rubber stamping (let's not forget former criminal, former Staten Island Rep. Michael Grimm, of "Throw you off this balcony if you ask that question again" fame), a few have the GOP blessing. To misquote George W Bush's misquote, the Trumpanzees will get fooled again!

"And for all the talk of a litmus test of going against McConnell to earn Bannon’s support, his insurgency, to many, appears more elastic. “He is out there looking for people who are going to win their primaries,” Harrison said. Since leaving the White House in August, Bannon has settled back in as the top dog at his “Breitbart Embassy” on Capitol Hill, hosting a regular flow of Republican challengers seeking his endorsement and keeping the White House on edge about his next move."

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/10/17/steve-bannon-candidates-gop-establishment-243880

maybe Bannon wants to be a new Sheldon Adelson, except GOP candidates stand in line to wait to kiss his ass b/c he has money. Bannon may only have to offer, a small percentage of the American voting population (considering HRC won the popular vote last time by millions). Oh well, maybe there's enough "flyover fools" believing in Bannon's nonsense agenda, to make him a kingmaker.

I'd like to see less free air time given to Bannon. It's like giving free air time to Richard Spencer. It's not like he's a running candidate whom equal time should or needs to be given.

Yeah, well, nothing new about that claim:

"""""The Obama cult

If Barack Obama disappoints his supporters, they will have only themselves to blame
Jul 23rd 2009
Timekeeper
Illustration by KAL
IN JANUARY 2007 Mike Huckabee, a former governor of Arkansas, said he was running for president to revive “our national soul”. He was not alone in taking an expansive view of presidential responsibilities. With the exception of Ron Paul, all the serious candidates waxed grandiloquent about their aims. John McCain said he modelled himself on Teddy Roosevelt, a man who “nourished the soul of a great nation”. Hillary Clinton lamented that America had no goals, and offered to supply some. And let us not forget the man they all sought to replace, George Bush, who promised, among other things, to “rid the world of evil”. Appalled by such hubris, a libertarian scholar called Gene Healy wrote “The Cult of the Presidency”, a book decrying the unrealistic expectations Americans have of their presidents. The book was written while Barack Obama's career was still on the launch pad, yet it describes with uncanny prescience the atmosphere that allowed him to soar.

Mr Obama has inspired more passionate devotion than any modern American politician. People scream and faint at his rallies. Some wear T-shirts proclaiming him “The One” and noting that “Jesus was a community organiser”. An editor at Newsweek described him as “above the country, above the world; he's sort of God.” He sets foreign hearts fluttering, too. A Pew poll published this week finds that 93% of Germans expect him to do the right thing in world affairs. Only 14% thought that about Mr Bush.

Perhaps Mr Obama inwardly cringes at the personality cult that surrounds him. But he has hardly discouraged it. As a campaigner, he promised to “change the world”, to “transform this country” and even (in front of a church full of evangelicals) to “create a Kingdom right here on earth”. As president, he keeps adding details to this ambitious wish-list. He vows to create millions of jobs, to cure cancer and to seek a world without nuclear weapons. On July 20th he promised something big (a complete overhaul of the health-care system), something improbable (to make America's college-graduation rate the highest in the world by 2020) and something no politician could plausibly accomplish (to make maths and science “cool again”).

The Founding Fathers intended a more modest role for the president: to defend the country when attacked, to enforce the law, to uphold the constitution—and that was about it. But over time, the office has grown. In 1956 Clinton Rossiter, a political scientist, wrote that Americans wanted their president to make the country rich, to take the lead on domestic policy, to respond to floods, tornadoes and rail strikes, to act as the nation's moral spokesman and to lead the free world. The occupant of the Oval Office had to be “a combination of scoutmaster, Delphic oracle, hero of the silver screen and father of the multitudes,” he said.

The public mood has grown more cynical since then; Watergate showed that presidents can be villains. But Americans still want their commander-in-chief to take command. It is pointless for a modern president to plead that some things, such as the business cycle, are beyond his control. So several have sought dubious powers to meet the public's unreasonable expectations. Sometimes people notice, as when Mr Bush claimed limitless leeway to tap phones and detain suspected terrorists. But sometimes they don't. For example, Mr Bush was blamed for the debacle of Hurricane Katrina, although responding to natural disasters is largely a local responsibility. So he pushed Congress to pass a law allowing the president to use the army to restore order after a future natural disaster, an epidemic, or under “other condition[s]”, a startling expansion of federal power.

Mr Obama promised to roll back Mr Bush's imperial presidency. But has he? Having slammed his predecessor for issuing “signing statements” dismissing parts of laws he had just signed, he is now doing the same thing. He vowed to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay, but this week put off for another six months any decision as to what to do with the inmates. Meanwhile, he has embraced Mrs Clinton's curious notion that the president should be “commander-in-chief of our economy”, by propping up banks, firing executives, backing car warranties and so forth. Mr Healy reckons that Mr Obama is “as dedicated to enhancing federal power as any president in 50 years.”"""""

and

"We have seen cults around Bhuttos, Gandhis and Khans in our parts of the world. But a cult around former President Obama and his wife is a strangely disturbing occurrence in the United States. One would imagine that with a high literacy rate, and mature politics developing cults around political figures is only a developing world problem. In case of President Obama, however, the followers have been so perturbed by newly appointed President Trump that they have gone in a denial mode imagining and believing Obama as a saviour — something that was witnessed around Imran Khan in the PTI camp in Pakistan during the 2013 elections."""

Liar, liar, pants on fire!


Report: White House Rushed Condolences To Gold Star Families

"At least three families said they received express-shipped packages from the White House after Trump claimed he called “virtually everybody.”

Multiple families of military service members killed in the line duty are now getting rush-delivered letters from President Donald Trump, days after Trump claimed he had called the immediate families of all service members who had been killed since he took office in January.

When asked during a Monday press conference why he hadn’t publicly acknowledged the deaths in Niger, Trump pitted himself against past presidents, saying he had written the soldiers’ families personal letters, while “President Obama and other presidents ... didn’t make calls.”

On Tuesday, Trump followed up that remark by claiming he had called “virtually” all Gold Star families who had lost kin since he took office.

Hours after that Oct. 17 radio broadcast, the White House scrambled to identify and find the contact information for Gold Star families who lost a service member since January, according to an internal Defense Department email obtained by political news site Roll Call.

The email exchange, between the White House and the Pentagon, revealed that senior White House aides knew Trump’s statement about having called “virtually” all Gold Star families was not accurate ― and they needed to correct it as soon as possible.


The White House was attempting to find out which Gold Star families Trump had not yet reached out to, according to Roll Call.

Multiple news outlets have found Trump has yet to reach out to a number of families who lost loved ones since January. In a report published Wednesday, the Washington Post interviewed the families of 13 service members who were killed after Trump took office: Half of the families received phone calls from the president, the remainder had not heard from Trump.

#faceoffascism

"Fascism’s core idea is allegiance to a leader in the name of national greatness. What distinguishes fascism from republicanism is how he responds to conflicts between the leader and countervailing principles or institutions. A republican welcomes such conflicts as ways to challenge and check the power of the executive. A fascist, perceiving these conflicts as obstacles to national unity, seeks to obliterate them and to consolidate power.
Bannon takes the latter approach..."

the posts have reappeared by posting.


was it flake who said that a traditional conservative is pro immigration?
LOL.

he really is off the rails.

"For Flake to explain his downfall that way, however, would be to acknowledge his own culpability. He has been a steadfast supporter of mass immigration, importing voters who are more open to big government and more likely to vote for Democrats. The ensuing realignment, in which Republicans reached for more populist-minded voters in order to stay competitive, has reduced the influence of the limited-government bloc and left Flake feeling like a man without a party.

Flake would probably argue, as most conservative immigration advocates do, that if Republicans had only done a better job spreading the free-market message to immigrant newcomers, then the party would not need populism to win elections. As I explained in a recent essay for NR, that view has never been convincing. Immigrants are ideologically inclined to larger government and have consistently voted that way, despite years of GOP outreach. Believing that we can bring in large numbers of big-government supporters without affecting the nation’s ideological balance is a case of hubris, and it may be at the heart of Flake’s downfall today.""""

If you believe that a traditional conservative is pro business, and that business is pro immigration...then yes, Flaky is a traditional conservative. Are today's Trump supporters, traditional conservatives? Not if they are anti Establishment, by definition they aren't traditional establishment conservatives. Conservatives like evolutionary change, not revolutionary change.

it might be argued, Obama literally embodied change by not being a white dude in the Oval Office. He might have been more of a change had he been female, Muslim, and black.

"For Flake to explain his downfall that way, however, would be to acknowledge his own culpability. He has been a steadfast supporter of mass immigration, importing voters who are more open to big government and more likely to vote for Democrats."

>>>Actually, Flakey's downfall is his party had to keep pushing the "immigrants are to blame for every problem!" in order to get the True Believers off their ass and into a voting booth. when the American economy is pulling out of a Republican recession due to the actions of a Democrat president...what do you need to vote Republican for? As for big government, most aging Baby Boomers want their Social Security and Medicare, and plenty of native-born Americans loved the taste of health insurance once they had it. Plenty of those darn immigrants are socially conservative, whether Catholic or Muslim, and aren't fighting for who gets to use a bathroom.
