Charles Pierce on the Third Party Options

Damn, the title said it all again.

Between Johnson on climate change, and Jill Stein's conviction that a Republican congress will obstruct a Republican president, the argument for more political parties in this country is not faring well.

And wow.

Response to Stefanik Supporter

Another instance of the post title saying it all:

     I'd like to join Ms. Ramant and Mr. Derrick in condemning the remarks made by a Derrick supporter about Congresswoman Stefanik. Mr. Derrick stated, "My campaign does not condone any language that disparages women." Don't know what's "weak and phony" about that. Alright, the comments were deplorable, too.
     Here's what Megyn Kelly said about Donald Trump, "You've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals." On Carly Fiorina, he said, "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?" This is necessarily a small sample. Can you imagine what he's said about Ms. Clinton in private?
     In public he's said, "I think her bodyguards should drop all weapons. I think they should disarm. Let's see what happens to her. Take their guns away. It'll be very dangerous." And, "If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people - maybe there is."
     I've never heard words of contrition from Donald Trump over misogynistic comments, assassination fantasies or for seven and a half years of Birtherism. Ms. Stefanik is supporting him without a discouraging word. Won't Ms. Ramant and her candidate join me in denouncing the hideousness of Donald Trump?

In my new kinder and gentler mode, I'm not even going to use the Humorless Harpies of Hate label, mostly because she wasn't one. Another step toward sainthood.

If It Says Trump, It's Crap

Great article at Newsweek telling what an absolutely shitty businessman Trump is. He's reduced to a brand now that Daddy is gone and not around to bail him out anymore. How stupid are his supporters?

Do rhetorical questions get a question mark?

Here's a link to a WashPo article that I have yet to read on the Trump Foundation. Just printed it out. Looks really juicy.

David Schanzer on Trump's Secret Plan

No, he doesn't really know what it is, but he's guessing it's bad.

Governments are often duped into overreacting to terrorism, causing more harm to themselves than a terrorist group ever could. 

Donald Trump has demonstrated over and over again this campaign season that he is an easy mark. 

Now I didn't need a professor from Duke University to tell me this. Lots of people, who aren't going to listen, do though.

Trump's secret plan to defeat the Islamic State. We have been assured it will be tough and it will quickly destroy the group. The only way to achieve both of these objectives would be a huge insertion of American military on the ground to defeat IS in Syria and Iraq, which is exactly what the terrorist group has been pining for. 

Donald Trump: Best friend of Putin and ISIS.

Trump has also responded to attacks like the ones in New York, New Jersey and Minneapolis this week by calling for a ban on immigration by Muslims to the United States. This overt religious discrimination against the world's second largest religion would inflict a huge wound on the United States that IS, on its own, could never dream of perpetrating.

Can Trump do worse than that?

Lastly, Trump has responded to attacks by calling for law enforcement to conduct surveillance of Muslims based not on suspicion that they are engaged in criminal activity, but solely on their religion. 

But, of course.

Seth on Trump's Birther Bullshit

And Christie is a marvelously bad bullshitter, too.

And not just Trump and Christie.

"And the stage is falling apart behind us."

Can't Believe the Green Party Has Neglected This

It was certainly news to me.

Citizen journalists have recorded no credible sightings of the Loch Ness Monster since 2011, the very dawn of the era of superior undersea mapping, but they did notice the concentrated discharges of “aquatrails,” i.e. chemtrails of the sea.

Why? You might ask. Go ahead, you know you're dying to. 

Most disturbing of all, 2011 happens to be the exact point in time when Hillary Clinton cemented her authority over the Department of State, banishing her critics and forming extraordinary alliances at NSA and CIA. In addition, the Clinton Foundation gave her access to the clubby world of international capital markets and put her in the same room as Rockefellers and Rothschilds. 

The plot thickens like a good Mornay sauce.

The reason these events are so crucially important is that many well-respected cryptozoologists from Dr. Kent Hovind to Dr. Stephenson Billings believe that Scotland’s “Nessie” is actually a plesiosaur dinosaur and that her existence proves much of leftist Darwinian “theory” entirely wrong. In fact, the survival of this dinosaur would validate the Biblical timeline of a 6,000-year old earth and the Great Flood.

Yet global elites like Hillary Clinton will do everything to stop the reawakening of faith that a living Loch Ness plesiosaur would inspire.

Well, maybe the Greens are into that whole leftist Darwinian theory thing. Tough call.

Another victim of the Clinton Crime Family.
