Here is the one hundredth article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is Republican Nazi organizer Richard Spencer. He is so honored for his Republican attitudes about women’s rights, his Fuhrer, and Caucasians’ place in society.

1015SpencerWhite Nationalist Richard Spencer’s tiki torch rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia, and his distant dream of forming a white ethnostate steal headlines, but his views about women—that their role in politics be shrunk down to a barely visible place that would be unrecognizable to almost anyone in modern America—is seldom highlighted.

I spoke to Spencer this week, and in the context of a discussion about two documents that he admires, the American Naturalization Acts of 1790 and 1795, laws that once set out rules for the United States in limiting naturalization to only free white persons of good moral standing, I pointed out that the U.S. was a fundamentally different country at the turn of the 19th century. More specifically, I asked him if he wanted to return to a time in which women weren’t allowed to vote.

"I’m not terribly excited about voting in general," Spencer said. "I think that mass democracy is a bit of a joke to be honest."

I pressed him on the question again.

“I don’t necessarily think that that’s a great thing,” Spencer said of women voting in U.S. elections… [emphasis added]

That ought to be enough to give this Republican a parade all by itself.  However, just in case you forget who this Republican is, here he is celebrating the infestation of the White House by his Fuhrer.  You need to see this no matter how much it makes you cringe!

Barf Bag Alert!!

Do you want this Republican Nazi hate to become standard here?

Wendy is due in about 25 minutes to de-stink the TomCat and help with housework, so I’ll write until she arrives and finish after she leaves.  Today id a holy day in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb.  My Broncos are worshiping with the Giants in the night game, so I’ll eat supper early and be in full meditation mode afterwards.  May the holy Orb shine its blessed light on your team, unless they claim to be oversized.  Tomorrow I have an appointment to pick up and adjust my glasses.  It won’t take long, but by the time we factor in the lift bus, I’ll be gone for around four hours.  I’ll publish, if I can, but I may have only a Personal Update.

Wendy just left.  She thanks you all for your kindness, and JD for the earrings that she will wear watching football this afternoon.

From Daily Kos: Late Professor William T. Kelley taught Marketing at Wharton School of Business and Finance, University of Pennsylvania, for 31 years, ending with his retirement in 1982.  Dr. Kelley, who also had vast experience as a business consultant, was the author of a then-widely used textbook called Marketing Intelligence — The Management of Marketing Information (originally published by P. Staples, London, 1968).  Dr. Kelley taught marketing management to both undergraduate and graduate students at Wharton. www.upenn.edu/…  Dr. Bill was one of my closest friends for 47 years when we lost him at 94 about six years ago.  Bill would have been 100 this year. 

Donald J. Trump was an undergraduate student at Wharton for the latter two of his college years, having been graduated in 1968. www.thedp.com/…  

Professor Kelley told me 100 times over three decades that “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.”  I remember his emphasis and inflection — it went like this — “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.”  Dr. Kelley told me this after Trump had become a celebrity but long before he was considered a political figure.  Dr. Kelley often referred to Trump’s arrogance when he told of this — that Trump came to Wharton thinking he already knew everything.

Isn’t it a shame that the state of Ivy League education was such that Kelly and his fellow profs passed Trump anyway, instead of flunking the dumb SOB? And why didn’t the Electoral College flunk him out?!!? RESIST!!

From NY Times: In a desolate corner of northeastern Australia, about 100 miles from the nearest town, a grassy stretch of prime grazing land sits above a vein of coal so rich and deep that it could be mined for decades.

The Australian government is considering a proposal to build one of the world’s largest coal mines in this remote locale, known as the Galilee Basin, where acacia and eucalyptus trees grow wild between scattered creeks.

An Indian conglomerate, the Adani Group, has asked for a taxpayer-financed loan of as much as $800 million to make the enormous project viable, promising to create thousands of jobs in return.

But the plan has met intense opposition in Australia and abroad, focusing attention on a question with global resonance: Given the threat of climate change and the slowing global demand for coal, does the world really need another giant mine, especially at the public’s expense?

I hope that the Land of Oz will prefer green energy. Aussies, would it be feasible to invest that $800 million in a giant solar farm or wind farm? RESIST!!

Manafart’s Millions

As time goes on we learn more and more about how deeply the Trump campaign was entwined with Russians, bent on establishing a US administration that could be controlled from the Kremlin.  If my interpretation is correct, and I haven’t been wrong yet, I think we can surmise that the criminal conspiracy came to us through Manafart’s Millions.

1014Manafart

Paul Manafort, a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, has much stronger financial ties to a Russian oligarch than have been previously reported.

An NBC News investigation reveals that $26 million changed hands in the form of a loan between a company linked to Manafort and the oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, a billionaire with close ties to the Kremlin.

The loan brings the total of their known business dealings to around $60 million over the past decade, according to financial documents filed in Cyprus and the Cayman Islands.

Manafort was forced to resign from the Trump campaign in August 2016, following allegations of improper financial dealings, charges he has strenuously denied. He is now a central figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Investigators have said they are looking into Manafort’s financial ties to prominent figures in Russia…

Click through for more.  Rachel Maddow broke the story down in detail.

If you let the video run beyond the end, you’ll also get Rachel’s interview with Richard Engel, the author of the article.

Everything above is well documented.  I cannot prove what follows, but I consider it the most likely scenario of how Trump became Putin’s puppet.

I think Deripaska contacted Manafart, told him about the dirt they have on Trump and offered Manafart big money to serve as go between.  Manifart offered his free services to the Trump campaign, and told the moron that Russia had pics of hookers peeing on him, and proof of several criminal money laundering deals.  Manifart told Trump that the dirt would stay private, and Russia would try to put him in the White House, if he would lift the sanctions against Russia and support Russia’s aggression in eastern Europe.  Trump agreed, Russia put him in the White House, Manafart got millions and Trump has tried to normalize Relations with Russia, prevented so far by publicity.

It’s a strange weather day with only 58° forecast and sunny, so the sun hitting the wall makes my room hot, and the open window makes it chilly, depending on my location in the room.

From The New Yorker: Donald Trump said on Friday that his I.Q. is “even higher” now that he knows that the United States Virgin Islands are part of the United States.

“Quite frankly, a few weeks ago, when I learned that Puerto Rico was a part of the U.S., I thought that that boosted my I.Q. to a whole new level,” Trump said. “Now that I also know about the Virgin Islands, my number must be off the charts.”

He said that he was eager to retake his I.Q. test because of “all the amazing things I learned this week.”

Dang Andy! I think the mere mention of Virgin Islands lowered Trump’s IQ, as all the blood flowed out of his itty bitty brain into his itty bitty pecker, as he tried to grope them. RESIST!!

From YouTube (GQ Channel): Is Mueller Trying to Stop Trump From Pardoning People?

 

The only people Trump would pardon, other than family, are people, who know enough about his own crimes to be dangerous, if they flip.  Mueller would not have to investigate this, unless he intended to indict Trump, his family, or people who can spill the beans on Trump.  Wooo Hooo!! One possible way is to bring simultaneous indictments in state and federal court. RESIST!!

From Upworthy: The city’s government unveiled an ambitious plan to ban gas-powered cars from the city by the end of the next decade.

"We have planned the end of thermic vehicle use, and therefore of fossil energies, by 2030," Christophe Nadjovski, Paris deputy mayor in charge of transportation, told France Info radio.

The city’s mayor, Anne Hidalgo, had already announced a plan to ban diesel-powered vehicles from the city by 2024.

Bravo à la France! RESIST!!

From Washington Post: President Trump is throwing a bomb into the insurance marketplaces created under the Affordable Care Act, choosing to end critical payments to health insurers that help millions of lower-income Americans afford coverage. The decision coincides with an executive order on Thursday to allow alternative health plans that skirt the law’s requirements.

The White House confirmed late Thursday that it would halt federal payments for cost-sharing reductions, although a statement did not specify when. Another statement a short time later by top officials at the Health and Human Services Department said the cutoff would be immediate. The subsidies total about $7 billion this year.

Trump has threatened for months to stop the payments, which go to insurers that are required by the law to help eligible consumers afford their deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses. But he held off while other administration officials warned him such a move would cause an implosion of the ACA marketplaces that could be blamed on Republicans, according to two individuals briefed on the decision.

Health insurers and state regulators have been in a state of high anxiety over the prospect of the marketplaces cratering because of such White House action. The fifth year’s open-enrollment season for consumers to buy coverage through ACA exchanges will start in less than three weeks, and insurers have said that stopping the cost-sharing payments would be the single greatest step the Trump administration could take to damage the marketplaces — and the law.

Trump’s idiocy is a major abuse of power. The job of the executive branch is to enforce existing law, not to refuse to enforce whatever the moron doesn’t like. It will also kill thousands of people, many of whom will be the deplorable idiots that voted for him. RESIST!!

It’s that time of week again, so here are four excellent video clips from Sam’s show last night.  Enjoy!!

Listen Up, Creeps: Weinstein Edition

 

Sam nailed it. Impeach Weinstein and the other pervert.

Abortion, Birth Control & Other Unnecessary Things

 

Republican right to life begins at ejaculation and ends at birth. Republicans believe that it is immoral for the rich to pay for anything, let alone birth control.

Finnish Fake News

 

It’s a great idea, but it only works if everyone does it. Once it’s already viral, Republican propaganda needs to be debunked.

A Penis PSA

 

Even though it’s something I don’t to, I shall not masturbate in front of employees. I trust Wendy will be pleased at that.

I hope you liked it.
