A worthy article in the Metrowestdailynews and My Comment below it


"Dangerous times in East Asia" by Lloyd Kaye
http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/…/letter-dangerous-times-…

My Comment: Lloyd, I just happened on your opinion when perusing the Letters section of the Metrowest News. Significant kudos are in order for a wonderfully written piece on a very complex international issue about which I am sure 98% of the US population has not a clue to its context. That I can accept because 98% of the US population does not have to know about the Pacific rim alliances and political maneuverings BUT a president must know.

You are completely correct Donald the foreign affairs ignorant knows exactly zero about this and other multi-layered foreign policy issues. In fact, he knows next to zero about most issues except for the one or ten incongruous sentence(s) he knows he can use to get his know nothing base at his rallies to scream in ecstasy because they think they have found their messiah's easy answers to all national maladies.

As president foreign policy details that are necessary to know are mandatory. If Trump, god forbid, wins, I would venture to say he could not even find those areas on a map.

What in god's name does it say about a nation one half of whose populous chooses an ignorant, crude, lewd, blustering blabberer for its major party's presidential nominee? The nation would rather be transfixed on no scandal scandals of a presidential nominee who DOES know about the issue(s) of which you speak. It would rather, too, direct its attention to the sexual psychopathology of a candidate Trump who does not.

Trump is a clear and present danger to this nation as well as an embarrassment and a joke, albeit a serious one, to the rest of the world.

WHAT TO DO

THERE IS ONE WAY AND ONE WAY ONLY TO MAKE SURE THIS LATEST UNJUST DISGUSTING FIASCO BY FBI DIRECTOR COMEY TO RUIN HILLARY'S CERTAIN WIN WHILE HE EXPLAINS NONE OF IT.  VOTE, VOTE AND VOTE SOME MORE; GET EVERYONE OUT TO VOTE DEMOCRATIC IN EVERY STATE.  

SPREAD THIS TO ALL YOU KNOW IN 50 STATES.  TRUMP IS UNFIT FOR THE PRESIDENCY AND THE REPUBLICAN COMEY WILL NOT CLARIFY WHAT UNJUST DAMAGE HE HAS DONE BY GINNING UP THESE PHONY EMAILS NOT SENT BY HILLARY AND SO THERE IS ONE WAY ONLY TO TRUMP TRUMP AND THAT IS TO VOTE DEMOCRATIC UP AND DOWN TICKET IN EVERY STATE POSSIBLE. 

IF REPUBLICONS TRY TO GUM UP THE WORKS AND DEPRESS THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE DO NOT NOT NOT LET THEM.  STAND IN LINE IF YOU HAVE TO, WEAR APPROPRIATE CLOTHING AND BRING APPROPRIATE SNACKS AND WATER.  IF IT'S WARM OUT BRING AN UMBRELLA AND MAYBE A PORTABLE SEAT TO MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE WHILE WAITING.  BRING SOMETHING TO READ TO PASS THE TIME. DO THAT AND VOTE VOTE VOTE DEMOCRATIC IN EVERY STATE.   GET ESPECIALLY HISPANICS, PEOPLE OF COLOR, WOMEN AND MANY OTHERS OUT TO VOTE!

WE ARE A HUGE NATION AND BECAUSE YOU SEE TRUMP IN A FRENZY IT MEANS LITTLE.  REPUBLICANS ARE DESPERATE AND KNOW THEY ARE LOSING AND THIS LATEST PUTRID ABRIDGMENT AGAINST HILLARY IS EGREGIOUS AND UNJUST.  THERE ARE MORE OF US THEN THERE ARE OF THEM AND THEY KNOW IT. THE WAY WE PROVE IT IS TO VOTE, TO OVERCOME ANY OBSTACLES THESE CHARLATANS USE TO DEPRESS DEMOCRATIC VOTES AND THEN DO SO!
PASS THIS ON TO ALL YOU KNOW!

A DASTARDLY OVERREACH

I may be rethinking this latest extension of Hillary's email frenzy as the biggest abridgement of civil liberties since the infamous J. Edgar Hoover's pathetic career of secret phone taps and bugs on figures like MLK and other Democrats when in fact it was conservatives who decimated Constitutional requirement to safeguard a human being from government overreach. This will be I suspect now much ado about nothing and indeed Republican Comey's motives are suspect.

This is a man who is supposedly scrupulous in his legal behavior? I suspect he failed this test miserably. To dangle an explosive email out for the public to stare at 11 days until a president is elected and to throw a possible monkey wrench into the probable Democratic winner of the presidency is a dastardly act, Mr. Comey and one from which the Republic may not survive. The mails in question were Abadein's TO Secretary Clinton and therefore might be duplicates. Mr. Comey, either look at those emails from Abadein in record breakneck speed, give Hillary Clinton the civil rights she deserves and take pity on a nation blasted by Trumpian lies or withdraw your investigation. This is in one word insane!

The latest Don Con with Republican FBI Director Comey's help

FBI is reopening Clinton's emails as they have they say more 10 days before the election related to another matter that is Anthony Weiner's texting? Give me a break. Where is that building from which I want to jump? She has been in the Republican cross-hairs forever. Thankfully, I voted early for HRC and everyone else should too.

I called her campaign headquarters which I do often because I have put my own reputation on the line writing so much as I do in support of her printed sometimes in publications. I completely agree with many who want this to end and I said so on headquarters voicemail that this insanity needs to be addressed and addressed as soon as humanly possible. She cannot no matter how far ahead be left hanging for Trump to use as another pinata. We must not let Donald Trump rule the airwaves because I believe she has nothing to hide and if that is true step up to the plate and hit a home run for the American voter and the nation who will, if this fire is put out promptly, vote Secretary Clinton the next president of the United States. May it be so!

My 2 cents on the latest [yawn] Wikileaks dump

The latest Wikileaks release (FUNNY HOW WIKILEAKS NEVER RELEASES ANYTHING ABOUT REPUBLICANS OR TRUMP) about Clinton Foundation money raised is just another one that will ultimately be addressed and then disappear into the mist. Why? Big surprise Foundations MUST raise money from large corporations.

When one is in a position to form a Foundation money must be raised for that Foundation. There is no other way to do it but to have surrogates go out and procure money from those multi-million dollar corporations which can afford it.

The Clinton Foundation is involved in [according to Wikileaks] the following:

Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) and CGI U, Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI), Clinton Development Initiative (CDI), The Alliance for a Healthier Generation, Clinton Health Matters Initiative (CHMI0, Disaster relief to name but a few.

It goes on to say the No Ceilings project In 2013, established a partnership between the foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to gather and study data on the progress of women and girls around the world since the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995. This is called "No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project" and many many more.
The Clinton Foundation has spent HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of dollars on charities to uplift those who need it around the globe. Nearly 90% of what it raises goes to the charities for which they procure the donations. There is no other way to do this but for connected people within that Foundation to raise that money from large corporations which also may include giving speeches. It's reality. Money does not just float into AIDS treatment or improvement of water or treatment of those with Zika virus or Ebola or find cures for a myriad of other diseases out of thin air. It is RAISED by people within the Foundation who do so from very large lucrative corporations which donate that money to improve lives of those who cannot afford to improve their own. In turn it improves the public face of those companies that give. That is the ONLY way money can be raised. Foundations raise money and large companies give their money to do good and also hope to see their own bottom line improve because it is positive for them to be seen as charitable entities.

FURTHER NO PAY TO PLAY has ever been proven against Secretary Clinton and none further has ever been proven that she used her position as Secretary of State for pay to play purposes. Period end of story.

At least no one took money from the Clinton Foundation for a 12 foot picture of themselves. Look into the Trump Foundation which has allegedly given very little to any charities about which Trump has lied that he has raised and, further, is why Trump will not release his taxes. He does not want the electorate to see what he has NOT given but says he has among a myriad of other questionable activities about which he allegedly lied. Donald Trump is a con. One should understand that by now.

FEEL FREE TO SEND THIS TO ANYONE YOU CHOOSE THEN GO OUT AND VOTE HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON INTO THE PRESIDENCY AND VOTE DEMOCRATS IN DOWN BALLOT.

Concede, Contest and Consent

Even though Hillary will probably win significantly and if she does any other sane Republican opposition would concede an election in a heart beat as is the American tradition it is different for Trump and his supporters who have no hearts. He will do anything to stick it to the nation he says he loves and better still he will do anything to hurt the Republican Party who has only itself to blame for this Frankenstein monster whom it created but who will kill it first.

In addition to the chasm in the Republican Party that has existed for quite some time there is another gum-up-the works tactic about which they must significantly worry. Rachel Maddow talked about a "Consent Decree" see http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show in her video segment entitled "RNC in legal trouble over Trump call for poll-watchers."

Briefly, the Republicans are under a Consent Decree order from the court barring them from trolling the polls or "monitoring fraud" a/k/a "Poll Watchers" as they promote their preventing election fraud fraudulent agenda. The Consent Decree has been in effect since 1981 when Republicans "monitored" polls with phony ID's and signs to allegedly catch them in the act of committing election fraud. Who is them? Do they watch heavily Republican polls? Heck NO only those polls with a heavy African American and Democratic turnout. It is yet another voter suppression technique Republicons carry in their suppress-the-vote (the Democratic vote) democracy destroying and Republican election winning nuclear weaponry arsenal. Ironically, though fraud is rare, its business of fraudulent fraud catching is booming in Republican Gunsmoke land and those John Wayne Republicons are going to catch the bad guys -- only Democrats, of course.

Every time Drumpf tells his supporters to monitor the vote he is violating the 1981 Consent Decree ordering them to cease and desist from poll watching that is monitoring and intimidating black voters to suppress their vote i.e. the Democratic vote. If they violate this order, which I am sure they will, instead of it expiring in 2017 it will expire in 2025. Republicans want desperately for this Consent Decree to be removed but Trump is foiling their chances and the RNC is going berserk over it.

The threat is that the RNC will pull away from Trump and say to the court they are not connected to him. Just how they are going to do that I have no idea. Perhaps it is another trick in their bag of many tricks. BTW, Democrats have already filed a suit against the RNC because of new poll trolling attempts complete with green Pepe the Frog badges, a symbol now of white supremacy. I cannot wait to see how that goes down in Little House on Republican Land!

I KID YOU NOT


I am saturated and drowning in election Trumpian sludge that has waxed eternal. It is impossible to watch and hear Trump at his rallies spewing lies within them. They are a symphony of a never ending cacophonous sound. I cannot look at his orange face and his ugly combed over hair one more time. The look of him is a metaphor for the essence of his being. He is on the inside as ugly and repulsive as he is at a glance. How many lies can one hear, how much verbiage of hate, redundancy of vituperative racist comments in constant the-game-is-rigged blabbing of media mendacity whipping his base into a potentially violent frenzy until one says I'm not going to take it any more? I simply turn him off or mute the sound when he is on.

I can only hope a majority of our electorate is smarter than the Republican base who incredulously elected him to be their nation's presidential contender from a major Party and present this disgrace to the world. I hope the majority of our electorate sees this con man, carnival barker buffoon for what he is -- a narcissist personality disordered human, hate filled liar saturated with the venom of an asp doing all of this not to gain the presidency but so he will gain the constant adulation he seeks in the crowds he can hypnotically convene and, while he is at it, create a cable network with his name on it.

Imagine a man who cozies up to white supremacists and the cross burning life extinguishing KKK while disparaging Hispanics, Muslims, Jews, women, the disabled, captured military and others for nothing more than to gain attention. He most likely cannot believe that he made it this far. The risk of his walking into the oval office is a clear and present danger. Never think it is not.

I strongly urge Hillary supporters and others everywhere to vote for her and vote early if you can. If you cannot stomach a minute more of the conspiracy laden constancy of Trump's lies or the brutality of his sexual assault on women stomach whatever it takes and for how long it may take to vote for her while you vote Democratic down ticket as well.

VOTE AND GET OUT THE VOTE FOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR PERSONS OF COLOR, HISPANICS, THE DISABLED, WOMEN, LGBT AND OTHERS EVERYWHERE. WHEN I SAY YOUR LIFE DEPENDS UPON IT, LIKE THE GREAT "TONIGHT SHOW" HOST THE LATE JACK PARR, WOULD SAY, "I KID YOU NOT" BECAUSE, IN TRUTH, IT SURELY DOES!

Teen Harvard prodigy makes brilliant closing argument for Hillary Clinton--Worth reading

A piece worth reading (link below) by a Harvard child prodigy.  He gets an A+ from me.

The Case for Hillary Clinton


http://shareblue.com/teen-harvard-prodigy-makes-brilliant-closing-argument-for-hillary-clinton/

Tom Hayden, a leader of the civil rights and antiwar movements in the 1960s who later became a California lawmaker, has died

I remember Tom Hayden so well from the late 1960's, a time when I shaped my political left-of-center ideals. I loved the movements for civil rights as well as the anti war movements of that era but I never became as radical as the activist left then. Still, my sympathies lay with their progressive ideals.

I, in truth, miss that time more than I can say as it provided me with a sense of humane purpose and infused life with an abundance of meaning. We were going to change the world for the better. I was young then and had much hope only to see the succeeding years fail to deliver many of the ideals I held. Still, some things did change for the good among them the election of our first Black president and soon we will go on to elect the first woman to the presidency.

I go on now with a sense of realistic pragmatism not letting the perfect be the enemy of the good. We do what we can today to fight the forces of hate and division and we never give up our nation's founding premise: "All men are created equal that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." We, the living, go on to try again for another day while we can to perfect our nation's founding ideals!

VOTE AND GET OUT THE VOTE FOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON

Highway to Heaven



Clinton is on the highway to the White House. To those who question any part of the Clinton Foundation I have this to say as one blogger did: This is how charities operate, you schmooze with them and they donate. Giving speeches to help the less fortunate is not wrong.(87 percent of Clinton foundation money is spent on actual charitable works)

I say: Yes, and she did not use the money to buy a 12 foot painting of herself! Clinton's taxes unlike Trump's forever faux audit tax excuse are out for all to see. Clinton is NOT stupid, she's an attorney and has the BEST campaign support on planet earth. No one is going to risk the insane inanities and flagrant ethics abuses if not allegedly illegal behaviors of Mr. Trump. His negatives including his sexual abuses are the size of Everest and if one has a few hours one could list a mountain high size of questionable if not unethical and allegedly down right illegal behaviors galore! Next to Trump Hillary Clinton is a saint! Politics, as the compromised Christie said perhaps his only truth, is not beanbag. It is a blood sport and one must know how to navigate the shark infested waters without sinking the boat. 


The dangerous fascist Trump is dead in the water, his ship has sailed a LONG LONG time ago. Our nation should thank god that will be so!

VOTE AND GET OUT THE VOTE FOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON


 RODHAM CLINTON

Woman Says Trump Sexually Assaulted Her, Offered Her $10,000 For Sex

Now the sex abuse of women by Trump numbers 12 and her name is Jessica Drake. (Link below) Each woman who tells her sex abuse story with Trump I think will be the rock that sinks the bestial ship especially offering her $10,000 for sex and even though there were witnesses accompanying the woman. But no. Trump could run a whore house and his base would hug him no matter what and, really, become more impressed with him. It is testament to the ugliness and immorality of his base. This is the Republican nominee for president of the United States, the most powerful office in the world? Those who hate simply do not care about anything nefarious he does.

America has a right wingnut Republican cancer and if America does not cut it out it will sink the ship of state. Trump and his base are America's cancer. One hopes the rest of the body politic is healthy enough to keep this poison in check. I pray every minute of every day (and I am not usually a praying person) that our nation-of-immigrants glue is stronger than the cancer threatening it. I THINK we will get through it; I think the women of this nation are choking on Trumpian filth, I think persons of color know this racist MUST be defeated and I think Hispanics know that they will be rounded up even 11 million of them, separated from their families and returned to their country of origin staggered by a country they do not know and separated from all they love that they will make sure to vote. God help us if this bestial evil named Trump pulls a rabbit out of a hat and does the unthinkable ... win.

VOTE NOVEMBER 8 AND GET OUT THE VOTE FOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON

YET ANOTHER REASON I AM PRO CHOICE

HER NAME WAS SUSAN

A recent diary posted at dKos discussed the remembrances of an old ER doctor in dealing with abortion before Roe v. Wade. That diary had a profound effect on me and forced me to relive an experience from my own medical school days more than 50 years ago.

Her name was Susan. She was young. She was beautiful. She was intelligent. She was articulate. She was dying…

Susan was a 23 year old single woman who came to Los Angeles in the early 60’s to pursue her dream to become an actress. She had played the leads in her high school plays somewhere in Utah. She was runner-up in the Miss Utah pageant. She managed to get a couple of walk-on parts in some B-grade Hollywood films. She was a starlet.

A year or so after coming to the West Coast she became pregnant. The father quickly faded away into faceless LA. Her good Christian parents were humiliated, outraged and wanted nothing to do with her. She was on her own. Broke. Friendless. Pregnant. Scared.

So she took the bus to San Diego, walked across the border and headed to a cheap, dirty Tijuana abortion clinic. Four hours later she was back on the other side of the border, in pain, bleeding and completely debased. By the next day, the pain had become unbearable and she was spiking a temperature. She went to a local emergency room and was hospitalized overnight at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica. She was subsequently transferred to the Medicine unit at UCLA Medical Center, at that time a small teaching hospital in its embryonic stages.

I was a 3rd year medical student in my first clinical rotation at UCLA. Susan was one of my first patients. We were about the same age. I was embarking on my medical career. Her life was ending

Over the next three weeks, I learned how people die from sepsis. Her uterus was perforated. She had developed gram-negative septicemia. Our knowledge of and access to antibiotics was primitive and limited. Eventually she went into renal failure. She burned with fever. She was racked with abdominal pain. The lovely face become sallow, sparkling eyes sunken, lifeless. Her skin turned a sickly bronze color. Her breath reeked the pungent stench of ammonia. After weeks of agony, her frail body mercifully surrendered.

As I recollect these painful images of my brief encounter with Susan, the most outrageous aspect of this experience is not even the way she died. It is that she died alone. During those three weeks, she never had a visitor. There was no boyfriend - he was off to other conquests. There were no parents - they disowned her in shame and embarrassment.

Even worse was the mindset of the medical staff. While she was given the requisite care, there was little, if any, sympathy or compassion for this young woman or her situation. There was always the profound sense that “she brought this on herself,” that she was, in the final analysis, just an unfortunate tramp - Even As She Lay Dying.

It is now 50 years later and I still carry this burden of shame for myself, my colleagues, my society, my country. And to this day, whenever the subject of Roe v Wade comes up, whenever I see and hear the holier-than-thou religious fanatics trying to take away the rights of a woman to control her own body, to make her own choices, to force her into the back alleys of Tijuana, I can still smell the stench of ammonia in the air.

Goodnight, Susan, we will not forget you.

Out of the Shadows


A friend, a decidedly Progressive one, related the following comment he received on his blog:
 
Some knucklehead named John Svelt just left the following comment on the latest piece on my blog:

"You're a disgusting race traitor or a goddamned jew."

Here was my answer:


"I am a race traitor. You got me there. Although not a Jew, I am, in fact, an honorary member of the international Jewish conspiracy."
It was a good, even humorous, response but in truth there is nothing funny about this longest hatred or any race hatred. Being Jewish and old enough I know they, the Jew haters, are SURELY out there. When the times present they will seize a rare opportunity to spew their venom of hate and hope for power. In the US, before Trump, these hate groups existed on the political periphery in forms like Lincoln Rockwell's American Nazi Party or Tom Metzger's "Race and Reason" and there were many others. In more modern times many also found life in the Republican Party fringe.

I do not know what kind of pathological cerebral configuration exists in their minds, how they arrived at the ridiculous conclusions that they do or whether it is simply a combination of nature/nurture but these Trumpian times have given a unique opportunity for the so called "Alt Right" to emerge out of the gaseous shadows of their primordial soup into the light.

I believe most of America is basically good but then again so did Anne Frank also believe in her heart that people are basically good. In view of her sad fate in another era we must in ours beware, be vigilant and never let these crackpots gain power. Power is deadly in Trumpian hands. No one will be safe, not you, not I, not your children and not your children's children which is why Trump, who gave these extremist malcontents on the right a forum MUST be crushed. Our nation on November 8 will be fighting for its life. GET OUT THE VOTE EVERYWHERE FOR HILLARY CLINTON.

"TRUMPLAND" -- GETTING OUT THE VOTE!

If any of you saw Larry O'Donnel then you know he had on the great documentarian Michael Moore talking about his new film "Trumpland." I will place the link below for you to view that segment.

Bottom Line: WE CANNOT BE COMPLACENT, WE CANNOT BE RELAXED BECAUSE THE POLLS LOOK SO GOOD. IF WE DO NOT GET OUT OUR VOTE, YES, TRUMP WINS. IN ALL THE STATES BUT ESPECIALLY THE SWING STATES OF STATES LIKE OHIO WHERE THE POLLING IS 45% TO 45% OUR VOTES NEED TO BE GOTTEN OUT. THIS IS A MUST.

POLITICO has identified 11 states where the 2016 election will be won and lost: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

IF YOU CAN IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE REACH THESE SWING STATES TO GET OUT THE VOTE FOR HILLARY CLINTON THEN PLEASE DO SO. YOU CAN DO IT IF YOU CAN GO TO ANY OF THOSE STATES AND CANVASS, YOU CAN DO IT BY GETTING IN TOUCH WITH HILLARY HEADQUARTERS IN YOUR TOWN AND ASK IF YOU CAN DO SO BY PHONE/COMPUTER HOOK UP, YOU CAN DO SO BY MORSE CODE OR SMOKE SIGNALS, BY HORSE OR ON FOOT BUT DO SO. ALL OF THE STATES LISTED ABOVE NEED GET OUT THE VOTE ACTION FOR HILLARY CLINTON.

IF SOMEONE NEEDS A RIDE TO THEIR POLLS GET THEM ONE, IF SOMEONE NEEDS PERSUADING DO SO AS LONG AS YOU DO SOMETHING. AS MICHAEL MOORE SAID THE US IS FILLED WITH GOOD PEOPLE BUT WE ARE ALSO A COUNTRY THAT ELECTED NIXON TWICE, WE ELECTED A SECOND RATE ACTOR REAGAN TWICE, AND WE ELECTED AN INCOMPETENT GEORGE BUSH TWICE AND ARE SUFFERING FROM HIS PRESIDENCY TO THIS DAY. DO NOT THINK THIS THING IS WON. IF YOU DO IT IS THEN THAT WE LOSE AND THE UNQUALIFIED TRUMP WINS. GET OUT THE VOTE FOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON HERE IN BLUE MASSACHUSETTS BUT GET OUT THE VOTE IN SO CALLED RED STATES TOO. THE STAKES ARE HUGE, THE NATION'S LIFE IS AT STAKE; YOUR LIFE AND YOUR CHILDREN'S LIFE AND THEIR CHILDREN'S LIFE IF THERE IS A PLANET ON WHICH TO LIVE IS AT STAKE. PLEASE TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY AND GET OUT THE VOTE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!

More than Fear Itself

Click on retired Justice Souter's (H.W. Bush appointee) video (link below) that Rachel illuminated last evening. It was given FIVE years ago. It is so prescient for our time you will not believe your ears. What a master of jurisprudence and a master of history Justice Souter is. It is an amazing video. What do we REALLY have to fear more than fear itself? Listen and you will learn what we as a culture must fear the most.

WHY I AM PRO CHOICE

The following is a public posting of a woman who had the heart wrenching experience of a late term abortion. It is exactly why I am a fierce advocate for choice specifically because of people like she. I thank her for sharing her very personal experience and allowing it to go public as the reality of abortion, most especially a late term one, is NEVER as the anti-choice rightwing religious fanatics say it is and as Trump described it in woefully ignorant fashion for political expediency to court Evangelicals watching the debate last night. Abortion, in this case a late term one, is usually fraught with the difficult emotions she had to endure and late term abortions usually accompany a medical lifesaving emergency that necessitated it. Others should bear witness to her story. This is from a women in Utah, who happens to be Mormon. In my opinion her story MUST be told and is told in her words she wants others to share. Her story is as follows:

"I HAD A LATE TERM ABORTION. IT IS NOTHING LIKE DESCRIBED BY TRUMP. PLEASE DON'T BASE YOUR VOTE ON THE FEAR MONGERING HE IS DOING. PLEASE READ MY EXPERIENCE:

I had to have a late term abortion. It was the worst moment in my life. What made it even worse was the State of Utah had made it illegal. I had one dead twin. The other had severe Spina Bifida, and would only have lived with life support, in great pain, for a few days.

I lay on the hospital floor, bawling hysterically, for twelve hours, waiting for an ethics committee of the health care corporation to decide my case justified what had to be done. My health was in danger due to the dead fetus. My husband and I consulted our LDS Bishop, who assured me I needed to do what I had to do, that it was even within LDS guidelines to do so. He reminded me I had six kids at home who needed their mother to live.

The abortion was terrible. It was done very gently, by Caesarean section, leaving the babies in their amniotic sacs. The living baby passed very quickly.

It was horrific. I think it even affected my dear physician, as he had never had to end a pregnancy before. I developed PTSD for which I had to be treated for years, mostly because of the fact I had to have it at all.

No woman should have to have the state have a say in the most painful decision she will ever make. Nobody is tearing babies apart in late term. They are always humanely done, only in situations where there is a non-viable or severely defective fetus and/or the mother's health is at risk.

Please don't vote for a candidate or a party that would make these decisions for the women who will die or be forced to carry unviable fetuses to term. This is a decision that is so painful and so terrible. Only the parents of the baby and a physician should be involved in the decision."

My Final Answer

The excruciatingly-to-suffer seemingly endless debates are mercifully over and the election is in the home stretch.  Yes, the presidency is the most important office in the nation and, one can make a case, even for the world since our powerful reach extends around the globe.  Other nations are watching us with shivers that this alleged model of democratic decorum has descended into a Trumpian Fascist madness.  Hillary has remained presidential and above the fray for it all.  Her vast experience and intellectual abilities shown bright along the way and did so last night.  She is eminently qualified for the office and Trump is decidedly not! 

Yes, those who critically analyze Hillary Clinton's candidacy have a right to their opinion and, indeed, I will never say any candidate is perfect.  The ever so contentious emails have been litigated endlessly both by the FBI and the Republican controlled Congress.  The FBI made the correct decision not to prosecute as there was absolutely no nefarious intent by her.   She held up under withering onslaught that would have felled many but she endured and showed Trump's lack of stamina accusation of her to be false.  Further, she apologized (more than Trump would ever do for his never ending lies,alleged unethical and even criminal actions.)  Benghazi was masticated beyond recognition.  In the end it was NOT her fault and admitted by the then Republican Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy done to electorally discredit her.  Requests were made to enhance security in Benghazi but were rejected by a Republican Congress of no.  Hillary is NOT responsible for every blessed thing that goes awry in an administration.  No administration can be policy perfect every time and the Middle East was fractured a long time ago under a Republican administration. 
The repair of it will be generational if it will occur at all. Yesterday, it seemed as if he would blame her for a rainy day. Trump's look was, well, I will say it, Un-American. The Mussolinian Trump could not manage even one smile as he gulped water to moisten his dry seemingly nervous mouth.

There is not enough time within a debate to play "This is your Trumpian So Called Life."  I am sure there was a lie counter and fact checker last evening.  Trump never fails to lose a debate as he drowns himself in wheezes, lies and unethical business practices.  Trump is a loser in business bankruptcies galore, a loser in a "charitable" Foundation to which little charity was given except to the charity named Trump and most of all, he is a loser in character.  The man has none just ask the women whom he sexually harassed.  There is not only the evidence of those claims of abuse by the woman themselves but those who knew about it after its happening and came forth to report it to the media.   The Billy Bush tape of Trump's admission to his love of groping women's genitals and kissing women on the mouth all without consent because as he stated "they let you do it" was simply the vehicle that put one nail in his electoral coffin.  It was nailed shut by his own words refusing to accept the validation of the American electoral process if it went against him.  It was a rejection of the heart of the democracy upon which the Republic itself stands.  His presidential aspirations died in that moment.

The Huffington Post headlines sum the debate up for me:  "Trump Disqualified Himself from the Presidency last night ..." Conservatives Aghast: 'Disgraceful', 'Beyond the Pale,' 'I Hope He Loses all 50 States, ...' 'Astonishing, 'Damaging' ... 'A Statement of Disloyalty Without Precedent since the Civil War...'  Andrew Sullivan (conservative): Unfit for 'Any Office in the United States'

The links are here if you choose to read more. 

Trump resoundingly lost the third and last debate and took his electoral chances with it.  As a friend so accurately assessed, since yesterday was my birthday, Hillary delivered the best birthday present of all to me -- the 2016 electoral win.  That is my final answer.

FULL FAITH AND CREDIT

Trump is ramping up his know nothing base claiming the GOP, the Democrats and Hillary Clinton are rigging his near certain loss for president. There is, he says, an international banking conspiracy to do so.  Where is the evidence? As in the president's foreign place of birth he still questions even now despite his tersely weak statement saying otherwise, he has none.   Seldom does he say most things with proof. In Trump's world truth matters not but the eternal lies he tells are infinite and accepted by his followers without question. This minority threatens to overthrow our government if Hillary is elected, arrest her and summarily execute her.  Vandals firebombed Republican headquarters in North Carolina. It was Democrats who gave $12,000 to rebuilt it.  Who are the real patriots?

Trump has no one to blame but himself urging his adherents on to a fevered pitch threatening to never accept the electoral outcome of the 2016 presidential election. The protestation offshoot of this is right wing extremist violence. In the end the GOP created the monster Trump and he has spawned the fascists who compose his ranks.

Trump’s minions are warned not to threaten violent overthrow of the government unless they do not mind dying at the hands of the army, National Guard and other forces the US has in its arsenal to defend itself from sedition something so alien to all we know as a modern nation.

I reject most all Republican policies but I accept, when necessary, Republicans’ elevation to power. Verbally and in written word I protest their policies and hope for change.  Sometimes I get it and sometimes not.  I accept it even if unhappily so.  The full faith and credit of the American government will not be destroyed. A rational democracy must be our way of life to survive as a people, it is the American way and it will be the radicals' way whether they like it or not!

The Hope

The political arena is explosive. I and am sure you are so tired of listening to anyone about it anymore but it is like a bad accident -- I cannot look at it and I cannot look away. We have only two weeks left.  Either we elect a sane woman with excellent credentials who has, I believe, the most valid academic and professional experience to lead us the most powerful nation on earth or we plunge our nation, perhaps, into civil war with global consequences as a psychopath will be entrusted with an arsenal of nuclear bombs and other weapons of mass destruction.

This psychopath knows how to dupe the masses.  I loathe political comparisons to Hitler but the Trump phenomenon makes this appropriate comparison necessary to evoke.  His Hitlerian tactics, like the Hitler rallies at Nuremberg (1923-1938), are staggering.  It defies credulity that Trump gets as much support as he does BUT his opposition has more IF we vote.   I know why it is said and he is alleged to have a book of Hitler's speeches by his bed. That is, for me, believable.

Please, please, please, tell everyone you know to reject the charlatan Fascist-like liar and sexual predator proven to be so over and over and over again.  The women who have stepped up to tell the truth about him are, perhaps, the bravest of all putting themselves at great risk. The groups driving Trump's "campaign" trying to capture his deplorable base are the most virulent panoply of rightwing extremists and shock jock conspiratorialist crackpots ever assembled. Those who are in love with the NRA and follow Trump are capable of great violence toting the assault rifles they say they love so much.

Trump offers, as his defense of his bestial behavior against women, nothing but lies.  He denies them but video tells the truth.  His no policy policies are  buttressed with the old Protocols of the Elders of Zion antiSemitic canards long debunked as pre-revolutionary Tsarist Russian propaganda that has plagued the Jewish people throughout history culminating in the Holocaust killing of the 6 million.  Trump is a Fascist-like demagogue who will bring chaos to our nation and nations around the globe if he ever gets to the White House which I believe he, IF WE VOTE, will not.  He insults Muslims and Jews, Gold Star parents, judges, persons of color, Hispanics, women, the disabled and many more.  We have ALL heard the proof for ourselves running 24/7 on cable news and we have seen videotape of his rallies that are infused with lie after lie after lie.  He simply cannot tell the truth and he simply must not win.

I cannot prove it but I just know it's true

Bill Maher has a segment:  I can't prove it but I just know it's true.

I will leave it to others to finally get the truth out. I cannot prove this yet but I just know it's true: There is collusion between Trump and Russian hacking. Some emails are not as they were written deducing someone trying to reprint them and doing so incorrectly. The technology map leads DIRECTLY to Russia of that there is surety no matter how the LYING BEAST tries to spin it. No one can believe one thing that orange faced gorilla says!

BREAKING NEWS:Two women told us Donald Trump had touched them inappropriately, one on a plane, the other outside an elevator in Trump Tower

The beginning of the end!

The Book of Life

Today, for the Jewish people, is the holiest most meaningful day of the year. It is a day asking forgiveness for those vows we have broken, an erasure of our past transgressions and a promise to do better in the coming year so that we may be inscribed for another year in the book of life.

I ask that for ALL those of good will and for our sadly divided nation to stay strong and to be inscribed in the book of life too.

Trumpette Calls for Revolution

Revolution? It is UNBELIEVABLE the psycho pathetic construct of this human being monster Trump Republicans have created. He will NEVER accept the outcome of the election no matter how scientifically valid it will be. He wants to throw our nation into chaos. The most dangerous candidate in our national history. When will it stop?

One of his beasts called for "revolution" if HRC is elected. I say fat chance, honey. I do NOT think the army, the National Guard, the FBI and every other militarized group that protects the nation will defend Trump and his deplorables. To that woman: "YOU ARE DONE" forgetaboutit!

The most diverse generation of voters in American history could save us from Donald Trump

My Comment: We know that Republicons in the form of Trump and desperate-to-hold-what-is-left of-their-Party-together Republicans, in any form, will keep hitting Secretary Clinton wherever they see an opening to do so. It is emotionally impossible for us to continually keep the emergency lights on for every sensationalized hot-off-the-press story against Secretary Clinton especially because the myriad of ad infinitum waste-of-taxpayer-money Republicon investigations of Clinton have, in history and in present time, been endless. They have turned up ZERO during her thirty or more years in the political limelight.

Therefore, we, the electorate, must focus our attention away from the cacophonous ear splitting sound of Republican mayhem and turn our efforts toward GETTING OUT THE VOTE FOR HILLARY AND DOWN BALLOT DEMOCRATS EVERYWHERE. IF WE GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE ESPECIALLY FROM EVERY MINORITY GROUP THAT SUFFERS UNDER THE REPUBLICAN JACKBOOT, WE NOT ONLY CAN BUT WILL WIN. The story below demands just that of millennials.

Further, Democratic operatives in the field in every state MUST monitor the security of the vote everywhere to guard against unethical Republicons who will stop at nothing to defeat Democrats by any means -- unethical, illegal or otherwise necessary and LIE ALL THE TIME about it. We must focus our attention on that and GETTING OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE EVERYWHERE with all deliberate speed!

You may send this to anyone you chose both here and around the nation.

Scandal! WikiLeaks reveals Hillary Clinton to be . . . reasonable.

Donald Trump is the GOP’s chemotherapy -- George Will

My comment: EXCELLENT COMMENTARY in the Washington Post by George Will. I always did wish this brilliant man of articulate excellence were on my side of the political spectrum. That's okay I can appreciate and there is room in my universe for great human intellect no matter where it resides!

George Will:

What did Donald Trump have left to lose Sunday night? His dignity? Please. His campaign’s theme? His Cleveland convention was a mini-Nuremberg rally for Republicans whose three-word recipe for making America great again was the shriek “Lock her up!” This presaged his banana-republican vow to imprison his opponent.

The St. Louis festival of snarls was preceded by the release of a tape that merely provided redundant evidence of what Trump is like when he is being his boisterous self. Nevertheless, the tape sent various Republicans, who until then had discovered nothing to disqualify Trump from the presidency, into paroxysms of theatrical, tactical and synthetic dismay.

Again, the tape revealed nothing about this arrested-development adolescent that today’s righteously recoiling Republicans either did not already know or had no excuse for not knowing. Before the tape reminded the pathologically forgetful of Trump’s feral appetites and deranged sense of entitlement, the staid Economist magazine, holding the subject of Trump at arm’s length like a soiled sock, reminded readers of this: “When Mr. Trump divorced the first of his three wives, Ivana, he let the New York tabloids know that one reason for the separation was that her breast implants felt all wrong.”

His sexual loutishness is a sufficient reason for defeating him, but it is far down a long list of sufficient reasons. But if it — rather than, say, his enthusiasm for torture even “if it doesn’t work,” or his ignorance of the nuclear triad — is required to prompt some Republicans to have second thoughts about him, so be it. For example, Sen. Richard Burr, a North Carolinian seeking a third term, represents a kind of Republican judiciousness regarding Trump. Having heard the tape and seen Trump’s “apology” (Trump said, essentially: My naughty locker-room banter is better than Bill Clinton’s behavior), Burr solemnly said: “I am going to watch his level of contrition over the next few days to determine my level of support.” North Carolinians will watch with bated breath as Burr, measuring with a moral micrometer, carefully calibrates how to adjust his support to Trump’s unfolding repentance. Burr, who is chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, has not received this nugget of intelligence: Contrition is not in Trump’s repertoire. Why should it be? His appetites, like his factoids, are self-legitimizing.


Trump is a marvelously efficient acid bath, stripping away his supporters’ surfaces, exposing their skeletal essences. Consider Mike Pence, a favorite of what Republicans devoutly praise as America’s “faith community.” Some of its representatives, their crucifixes glittering in the television lights, are still earnestly explaining the urgency of giving to Trump, who agreed that his daughter is “a piece of ass,” the task of improving America’s coarsened culture.

Because Pence looks relatively presidential when standing next to Trump — talk about defining adequacy down — some Republicans want Trump to slink away, allowing Pence to float to the top of the ticket and represent Republicanism resurrected. This idea ignores a pertinent point: Pence is standing next to Trump.

He salivated for the privilege of being Trump’s poodle, and he expresses his canine devotion in rhetorical treacle about “this good man.” What would a bad man look like to pastor Pence?

Still, some journalists, who seem to have no interests beyond their obsession with presidential politics and who illustrate Kipling’s principle (“What should they know of England who only England know?”), are so eager to get started on 2020 that they are anointing Pence the GOP’s front-runner. Perhaps Republicans will indeed embrace a man who embraced a presidential candidate whose supposed “locker-room banter” merely echoed sexual boasts he published in a book.

Today, however, Trump should stay atop the ticket, for four reasons. First, he will give the nation the pleasure of seeing him join the one cohort, of the many cohorts he disdains, that he most despises — “losers.” Second, by continuing to campaign in the spirit of St. Louis, he can remind the nation of the useful axiom that there is no such thing as rock bottom. Third, by persevering through Nov. 8 he can simplify the GOP’s quadrennial exercise of writing its post-campaign autopsy, which this year can be published Nov. 9 in one sentence: “Perhaps it is imprudent to nominate a venomous charlatan.” Fourth, Trump is the GOP’s chemotherapy, a nauseating but, if carried through to completion, perhaps a curative experience.

BIGGEST LIAR EVER SOLD; BEAST OF A DIFFERENT KIND

There is simply too much about which to excoriate the Beast that is Trump. I will, though, say some preliminaries.

This "debate" did NOT move the needle.  Trump directed his comments to his base and probably succeeded.  One cannot, I repeat CANNOT, win a presidential election with the base number he has and even that number may, I say may, erode some more as allegedly there is MORE damning tape to be released about this psycho-sociopathic monster's behavior.

The Beast Trump, of course, brought up Bill Clinton's sexual issues and not only that had a stunt staged before the debate unveiling four of the women sitting to each side of Trump in a conference room. They looked haggard and Paula Jones to Trump's far left looked, well, like Paula Jones not exactly college valedictorian.  That montage did Trump NO favors.  It was ghastly, adolescent and downright STUPID.  Big surprise Bill Clinton has had many extra marital conquests.  It's old news and BILL IS NOT ON THE TICKET.  We know Bill Clinton's bad behavior cannot be denied but his wife who endured it IS on the top of the Democratic ticket. There was even tape that Trump in the late 1990's complimented Hillary as to how well she dealt with this personal controversy and stated what a good person she is.

Trump IS A BEAST OF A DIFFERENT KIND. Any man who can incestuously drool over his own daughter's body even permitting a profanity broadcasted on the air by Howard Stern sex shock jock about Trump's daughter's posterior is lower than depths of the sea from whence this ugly creature and bastardization of humanity Trump came.

His mannerisms of standing up hanging near and over Clinton clearly were meant to disrupt her but it FAILED and it did so emphatically.  Hillary Clinton tried NOT to jump into the Trump sewer and did not.  She remained above the fray.  Perhaps more of us wished she addressed more of the Beast Trump's lies more emphatically and we know he lies ALL the time.  Curious how he called HER the liar.  Really Donald, really?  I think NOT.  I think Trump is the biggest liar ever sold.

The New York Times has fact checkers.  Clearly Trump excelled at lying.  Case in point:  There is TAPE that he approved of the invasion of Iraq.  Let me say that again: THERE IS TAPE THAT HE APPROVED THE INVASION OF IRAQ.  There is tape of all of his statements that clearly were lies on the debate stage.  His economic plan would explode the debt.  It would give a HUGE tax break to the top 1% like he.  Ridding Obamacare would place MILLIONS without health care doomed to the grave.  Does it need fixing? YES and Hillary said it is just what she will do but to eradicate it is tantamount to murder of those who cannot afford healthcare like the alleged billionaire Trump.  The Beast Trump has zero empathy.

There is also allegedly more tape that will show worse sexual accosts of women. There is SO much proof that this Beast is NOT fit for the presidency it is staggering he has gotten as far as he has. It shows that the Republican Party sealed its own fate and put the final nail in their own otherwise shabby coffin.  They have only themselves to blame.  Trump's race hatreds are their hatreds but the Republican establishment espouses them with a bit more palatable class.

Trump was sniffing more than ever which leads me to another suspicion Howard Dean raised that Trump is allegedly a cocaine addict.  It would account for the sniffing he did continuously and it would account for the EXTREME aggressiveness and vicious anger of this 70 year old hostile psychopath.

Sure, let's put his hands on the nuclear codes!  Trump is a Republican death wish for the nation.  The white men are losing control of it and they do not know what to do so they produced the Frankenstein monster the Beast Trump whom they cannot control and who has fractured the Party maybe beyond repair.

Most post-debate polls have Hillary winning albeit not as significantly as the first debate.  The one statement of truth that Trump maintained is correct. Hillary is not a quitter even where her marriage is concerned.  Difficult as Bill's behavior was to endure in the end I believe she loved him. Now in the beginning I can say I'M WITH HER TIMES 10. GOOD LUCK, SOON TO BE MADAM PRESIDENT, I'M WITH YOU 100%!

Dealing with Trump's sexual allegations against Bill Clinton

I will say a prayer and positive thoughts for Hillary and urge everyone to send good thoughts for her success tonight.

The beast Trump is going to bring up Bill's sexual issues and Bill has had many of them as we all know including an alleged rape of Ms. Broderick. Many are, though, of the he said/she said variety but, in truth, Bill's bad behavior cannot be denied. Today, like JFK and others before him he might not have made the presidency. I don't know. Social media is the big variable.

Trump IS A BEAST OF A DIFFERENT KIND. Any man who can incestuously drool over his own daughter's body even permitting a profanity to be used on the air by Howard Stern about his daughter's posterior is lower than depths of the sea from whence this ugly creature and bastardization of humanity Trump came.

Moreover, Bill Clinton IS NOT NOW ON THE TICKET and Hillary, while I am sure was furious at the time, did what Melania Trump just said what Melania did -- hate the sin but love the sinner and that is just what Hillary should say and I think, perhaps, is true.

Hillary is not a quitter even where her marriage is concerned difficult as Bill's behavior was to endure. In the end, I believe she loved her husband. Now in the beginning I can say I'M WITH HER TIMES 10! GOOD LUCK, SOON TO BE MADAM PRESIDENT, I'M WITH YOU 100%

An Elephant Never Forgets

An Elephant Never Forgets: The symbol of the Republican Party is an elephant. As the saying goes elephants never forget. I beg to differ. Romney finally came out of hiding under his rock to take a bath in the Never Trump luxury liner now that the Republican Party rats are leaving the sinking Titanic Trump ship. Romney decided to campaign and give a rousing cheer for some guy named Heck running for the Senate in Nevaaaada or as Trump likes to taunt or perhaps he forgot and pronounced it in eastern snobbery lingo Nevaaaaahhhhda. Nevada, a state Trump needs, does not like it pronounced that way. They get really mad but what does Trump care? He does not even care if one talks about his parts private or otherwise!

The reasons Romney gives you to support the Senate candidate Heck are the same old tired RepublCON claptrap reasons against the big bad liberals and their big bad government specifically, of course, the Darth Vader in Republican land of our first black president Obama they simply could not stand to look at no matter if he shrank the deficit to zero.

Romney railed against the big bad liberals who gave us, he should say, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, won World War II, snatched the nation from the depths of the 1930’s Great Depression and I might add rescued the nation from the Great Recession of 2007 G.W. Bush’s contribution to success. Last but not least the big bad liberal Obama, who in reality was not so liberal, gave us so called Obamacare saving 20 million or more human beings from medical catastrophes and/or death. The good ole Republicans who gave us Horatio Alger/Ayn Rand’s sink or swim, live or die, all for me and nothing for you trickle down lies not to be forgotten the comment of collective Republicons in response to the question what if a 25 year old who does not have health insurance got sick? Let him die, they said. Nice crowd--NOT

It took some time for Republicon politicos to consistently pull the wool over those who have, as my mother used to say, a two inch memory. Moreover, Obama killed enemy No. one, Osama bin Laden. If Bush had killed him one would never have heard the end of it proclaiming only Republcons know how to fight wars. I suspect they know how to put costly wars on the world's biggest credit card of US debt sinking us into the Middle East in perpetuity. Who cares? It’s all for a good cause – showing how great the US war machine is and giving your tax bucks to their friends in the military/industrial complex. Instead, though, Osama bin Laden’s death well heard and cheered by all at the time, is easily forgotten the day after yesterday. Sad.

The way I see it, the Republican mantra is NOT small government although they say it is except when they want government to have a say over a woman's body or with whom one sleeps. This elephant remembers (no I’m not Republican but I love elephants) trickle down economics failed and it failed over 30 years of Republican deregulation and Wall Street fraud. Republican policies fail and when they do it takes Democrats to pull them out of the ditch and back into the big top!

Donald Trump brags in vulgar terms about groping women in a 2005 recording, saying, "When you're a star they let you do it"

As if anyone needed any more proof that Trump is a sick man and as proof there are the myriad of ugly racist, misogynistic, rude, crude, lewd, and hateful things he has said not to mention his ugly background as a "successful" businessman as if he were so.  I think NOT. There is PLENTY of encyclopedic evidence that proves he is not. 
This man will NEVER on this planet be president of the United States.  Can you say welcome to the White House, Madam President?  It cannot happen fast enough for me!
I have linked below what this excuse for a man said about women in his own recorded voice.  Warning don't eat dinner before you have read it.

Pence, Hands Off My Body

"Mike Pence is so obsessed with shutting down Planned Parenthood, he was willing to shut down the government over it" Link below.

These religious fanatics are a cancer on the body politic. RepubliCONS are so concerned with big government but they want to invade a women's freedom to choose and allow big government to make one's personal decisions about one's own life. It is heinous.

The decision to go through with a pregnancy or to terminate a fetus -- yes a fetus because that is what it is -- is a woman's right alone. The fetus is NOT a full term child. It cannot be without its attachment to the mother to sustain it. The mother is the one who should be making serious decisions about her own body rather than in years before the SCOTUS Roe decision going to a butcher abortionist to have then an illegal abortion where she often suffered blood poisoning, infertility or worse death if the medical hack used unsterilized inappropriate medical equipment and procedures to perform one. It happened often.

This nation will NOT go back to those not-so-glorious days of yesteryear. We cannot because the life of the full term mother is at stake. If you do not want an abortion by all means DON'T HAVE ONE but get government out of the bedrooms and lives of women who need to make their own decisions about their own bodies. Besides that, Planned Parenthood does MUCH more than offer abortion services. It offers a host of medical procedures such as family planning, cancer screenings and SDI treatments.

The religious extremists are consummately wrong and need to get their hands off a women's body! Believe what you want but leave the decisions about it to her!

Thou Shat Not Bear False Witness

 
Frank Bruni's opinion in the NYT's link below is masterful. In my opinion Pence did NOT win the debate if the debate win is only characterized by style. Pence never, not once, in Trumpian fashion addressed the targeted criticism of Trump by Kaine. Accusations by Kaine of Trump's own anti Muslim, anti immigrant, misogynistic, mocking the handicapped, PTSD suffering soldier and stone cold statements impugning just about everyone else with a vulnerability cannot be denied in the era of videotape. That, in my opinion, makes Pence the most unChristian essence of what Pence says he does not want to be--a liar too.

Thou shall not bear false witness i.e. thou shalt not lie. Pence did plenty of that bobbing, weaving around and lying about the character of the man with whom he shares the ticket. One wonders how the moral Pence lives with himself. Probably he does so by saying to himself he is doing all this for a reason -- ushering in the 2020 presidency for himself that in his mind finally will, in totality, Christianize the nation saving it for white men only.

MANDATORY VIEWING

By Paul Papanek:   I try to stay as far away from politics on Facebook as possible. That said, I just cut together a few of my favorite scenes from Elia Kazan's 1957 classic "A Face in the Crowd" with Andy Griffith. The entire film should be required viewing for everyone during this election.  FORWARD TO ANYONE YOU CHOOSE.


The BEAST speaks

The BEAST speaks -- vile, ruinous, sickening, profane and awful beyond belief. He is nation killing!  The bad words are camouflaged.  The article is from the "Daily Kos."  
He's impugning Hillary for HER bad marriages? WOW is that the pot calling the kettle ...  He has had THREE wives and cheated on at least two.  He is a serial adulterer and told Howard Stern he is.  In a 1997 interview with shock jock Howard Stern, Trump talked about how he had been “lucky” not to have contracted diseases when he was sleeping around.and soon to be sued for allegedly child rape.  Nice representative of our nation -- NOT

Forgive the Trump explicitly profane quotes that are made by writers who have endured his low life assaults.  Then forward to anyone you choose.  This man has to be chewed up and flattened before he ever is allowed one inch near the White House.

INFERORITY



Trump has welcomed into his racist arms Eugenicists, present day American Nazis (National Alliance), Grand High Wizards of the Ku Klux Klan who believe in the genetic superiority of whites over all others which has been the rationale for discrimination and death to a group who had no control of their transportation in chains into the pit of hell that was for them America -- a land of misery and a land to them of the UNfree.

Trump is peddling his wares to a supply of deplorables never before given much credence in the American political arena except on the fringes of Republican politics now are front and center. All who have an intelligent spot in one synapse of their brain know the theory of Eugenics has been discredited long ago. That thinking produced the rotten strange fruit hanging from the Poplar Trees as it did the Holocaust.

I refer one to the millions of great African Americans and other persons of color around the globe who have contributed SO much to the culture of our nation and the world despite the Herculean odds against them. Google great African Americans and persons of color in other lands who are the superior poets, writers, artists, sportsmen, musicians, play writes, directors, writers of music, singers, historians, journalists, scientists and so much more. The names of Jackie Robinson, Husain Bolt, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Willie Mays, Jessie Owens, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Oprah, Toni Morrison, James Baldwin, Alice Walker, Marion Anderson, Billie Holiday, Maya Angelou, James Alan McPherson, Lester Holt, Eugene Robinson, Jimi Hendrix, John Coltraine, Louis Armstrong, Denzel Washington, Hattie McDaniel, Morgan Freeman, Viola Davis, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, John Lewis, Elijah Cummings, John McWhartor, Ed Brook, Frederick Douglas, Colin Powell, Henry Lewis Gates, Joy Reed, Melissa Harris Perry, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maxine Waters, Shirley Chislohm, Barbara Jordan and last but by no means least the president of the United States Barack Obama. There is not enough time for me to list an encyclopedic gargantuan enumeration of INFINITELY more African American brilliance.

More are superior to the white ORANGE orangutan TRUMP who is GREAT at the CON and STUPID as hell when it comes to making money. He is GREAT at bankruptcies though, milking the system, not paying his fair share and GREAT at pulling the wool over all those inferior white guy's eyes. Trump is in short the great con man of superior proportions. What a legacy. I can only hope his corporation, if you want to call it that, melts down into the dust and his offspring and Hussein-like sons go down with him. They ALL should IF the system were, in fact, fair.
 

Trump can counter all he likes there are those journalists who said they would go to jail to expose his taxes and his tax returns of 1995 can be seen and deduce he has paid NO taxes for a very long time. He rides on middle class backs. His base will, of course, immoral scoundrels that they are, still support him. But unless ones brain is frozen in time most, one would hope, of those who know finance and tax law will go after him like a tiger goes after its prey and not let go until it is brought down and crushed placing him into the outhouse of American history!
