California Democrats flip off Donald Trump and Shout “F*ck Donald Trump”

Remember, “Love Trumps Hate.”

From Sacramento Bee: The anti-Trump fervor at California’s Democratic Party convention this weekend can be summarized in choice words from outgoing chair of the California Democratic Party, John Burton: “F*%! Donald Trump.”

The always foul-mouthed Burton, 84, stood before thousands of Democratic delegates at Saturday’s general assembly, and as a rallying cry asked the crowd to join in. He then shoved two fists in the air, flipping the bird. Across the room at the Sacramento Convention Center, many in the audience followed suit.

On stage were House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, Rep, Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, state Sen. Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, and others.

Democrats over the weekend were fired up about Donald Trump’s presidency, investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign and the heated health care debate in California. Nearly every politician who took the stage at Saturday’s convention denounced Trump and his agenda.

“We are President Trump’s worst nightmare,” California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León said in a speech.

Burton, who took over as chairman of the state Democratic Party in 2009, fired off expletives throughout the three-day convention.

“Put your f*&#! sign down man, we’re all for it,” Burton said to a crowd of nurses urging fellow Democrats to support a bill in the Legislature that would create a publicly funded, universal health care system for California.

Friday night, hecklers shouted down Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg moments before Democratic National Party Chairman Tom Perez took the microphone, chanting in support of single-payer health care. “Hey shut the F$@# up or go outside alright?” Burton said.

Look who support Trump’s missile strike on Syria

In the early morning hours of April 7, 2017, the Trump administration fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from a U.S. destroyer in the Mediterranean Sea, at Shayrat Air Base in Syria, alleged to be the location from where the Assad government, on April 4, allegedly launched a chemical attack of sarin nerve gas which killed many civilians, including women and children, in the rebel-held town of Khan Shaykhun in Idlib province.

Trump undertook this act of war against the legitimate government of a sovereign state who has the support of Russia and China:

  • without an official investigation of the alleged chemical attack
  • without the approval of Congress
  • without an act of aggression from the Syrian government against the United States
  • without Syria presenting a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States
  • without a prior consultation with Russia (or China), and in so not doing, risks WW3 with two world powers.

Trump justified the missile strike as being for the Syrian children allegedly killed by the alleged chemical sarin-gas attack. So it’s all the more ironic that his missile strike killed 18 civilians, including 5 children. (AFP)

Here are the prominent Americans who support Trump’s missile attack:

(1) Bill Kristol

He who supported a third-party candidate against presidential candidate Trump, who finds Trump’s “America First” nationalism vulgar and embarrassing, who openly advocates a deep-state coup against President Trump — now approves of Trump risking WW3 by firing 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at Syria, without even an investigation as to who’d actually deployed the sarin gas attack.

(2) Brian Williams

The pathological liar and disgraced former NBC anchorman calls Trump’s missile strikes that killed 18 civilians, including 5 children, a “beautiful” sight:

(3) Pelosi & Schumer

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D–CA) said, “Tonight’s strike in Syria appears to be a proportional response to the regime’s use of chemical weapons.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D–NY) said, “Making sure Assad knows that when he commits such despicable atrocities he will pay a price is the right thing to do.” (Wikipedia)

(4) A Pack of RINOs

Senators John McCain (R–AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R–SC) said, “Unlike the previous administration, President Trump confronted a pivotal moment in Syria and took action. For that, he deserves the support of the American people.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R–WI) said the strike was “appropriate and just.”

Also Sens. Bob Corker (R-TN), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Orin Hatch (R-UT), David Perdue (R-GA), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Ben Sasse (R-NE), and Thom Tillis (R-NC).  (Wikipedia)

(5) Hillary Clinton

Yesterday, April 7, speaking to a crowd of supporters in Houston, Texas, Clinton applauds Trump’s missile strikes and urges him to undertake even more U.S. military action to take out Assad — and open America’s doors to Syrian refugees:

“The action taken last night needs to be followed by a broader strategy to end Syria’s civil war . . . . So I hope this administration will move forward [and] . . . recognize that they cannot in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next close America’s doors to them.”

(6) The Military-Industrial Complex

CNN Money reports, April 7, 2017, that Raytheon, the company that makes the Tomahawk missiles used in Trump’s air strikes on Syria, rose in early stock trading Friday. Investors are betting that Trump’s air strike means the Pentagon will need more Tomahawks.

The Department of Defense asked for $2 billion over five years to buy 4,000 Tomahawks for the U.S. Navy in its fiscal 2017 budget last February.

Raytheon(RTN) wasn’t the only defense stock rising Friday either. Lockheed Martin (LMT), which partners with Raytheon on the Javelin missile launcher system and also makes Hellfire missiles, gained nearly 1%.

And so, Donald Trump finally achieves bipartisan support . . . . Sarc/

I have a question for all the conservatives out there who support Trump’s missile strike against the Assad government:

Weren’t you adamantly AGAINST Obama wanting to attack Assad in 2013?

Then, as now, the conditions are the same. Then, as now, the excuse for U.S. military action is Assad’s alleged chemical attacks and those poor little children.

So what has changed to account for your enthusiastic support to attack Syria now?

And how does launching 59 cruise missiles at Syria — only 23 (or 40%) of which actually hit the target — at a cost of $114.5 million (each Tomahawk costs $1.94 million), Make America Great Again?

Fake News: Newsweek didn’t write or read fake ‘Hillary won’ cover story

Fake News Alert!!!

Do you remember Newsweek‘s November 8, 2016 “Special Commemorative Edition” — the one declaring Hillary Clinton as the winner of an election that hadn’t yet taken place? (See “The fix is in: Newsweek already has an issue in print declaring Hillary Clinton the winner”)

newsweek-hillary-edition1

Believing in the media’s rigged election polls, Newsweek was so confident Hillary would be the winner that they had the “Madame President” issue already in print and sent to vendors before the election results. The National Enquirer reports:

Newsweek was left with a huge stash of magazines to burn — after their Special Edition ‘Madam President’ cover featuring Hillary was sent out to news vendors. An alternate cover celebrating ‘President Trump’ was also prepared, but the publishers had only printed copies of Hillary’s ‘winning’ issue.

According to Topix Media, 17 of the 125,000 “Madam President” issues had been sold before they were recalled by Newsweek.

The following is a quote pulled from the fawning “Madam President” cover story, in which Trump and his supporters are demonized as “deplorable,” fearful and hateful, who want to repeal the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which gave women the right to vote:

“…as the tone of the election grew darker and more bizarre by the day, President-Elect Hillary Clinton ‘went high’ when her opponent went even lower. No stranger to trudging through the mire of misogyny in her career as first lady, senator, and secretary of state, President-Elect Clinton continued to push for an issues-based campaign even as a handful of Trump’s most deplorable supporters, seeing the wide margins Clinton held among female voters, called to repeal the 19th amendment. On election day, Americans across the country roundly rejected the kind of fear and hate-based conservatism peddled by Donald Trump and elected the first woman in U.S. history to the presidency. The culminating election of a career in politics spanning 3 decades and arguably more experience than any other incoming president, 2016’s was not an easy race to watch, comment on or be a part of–but when the dust cleared it revealed a priceless moment in American history. The highest glass ceiling in the Western World had [been shattered]…”

I don’t recall Trump or his supporters calling for the 19th Amendment to be repealed, do you?

Even more ridiculous is the fact that Newsweek‘s political editor, Matthew Cooper, admitted that no one at Newsweek had either written or read the “Madam President” story.

matthew-cooper-newsweek-political-editor

Appearing on FoxNews’ Tucker Carlson Show on Nov. 30, 2016, Cooper said, referring to the “Madame President” issue (1:07 mark):

“It’s embarrassing. Let me tell you how it happened, and what we’re doing to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Newsweek, like a lot of publications, puts out special commemorative issues . . . these are big parts of the magazine business. What we did for the election was the company that we subcontract to . . . produced two editions: One, ‘President Trump’, and ‘Madame President’. They both . . . the ‘Madame President’ one mistakenly went out, which was the first embarrassment, it should never have happened. But it can happen . . . not up to our editorial standards. . . . No one on our staff wrote it, we subcontracted it out . . . [no one] read it before it went out . . . . You see, we subcontract these commemorative issues out to a company. This is pretty common in the magazine business . . . . It’s sort of been done on a separate track, and we did not review it before it went out.

As you heard from the video, Newsweek is blaming its premature “Madame President” issue on its subcontractor, Topix Media:

From the Editors: 2 special edition covers for 2016 election outcomes were produced by a Newsweek licensee, Topix Media, and not by Newsweek pic.twitter.com/MwC4RytGbC

— Newsweek (@Newsweek) November 7, 2016

In other words, Newsweek‘s own editors and reporters don’t read the magazine. Kinda like Congress not reading a bill before they pass it, or as Nancy Pelosi put it in perfect Orwellian Newspeak: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.”

The question then is:

If Newsweek’s own staff don’t write or read the magazine, why are you?

Finally, the question must be asked:

So who actually wrote the McCarthyist “Madame President” cover-story?

Take our poll! 😀

Nancy Pelosi had to change phone number after receiving scores of obscene and sick calls

Last Friday night, the Romanian hacker Guccifer 2.0 posted an excel spreadsheet on his blog – obtained from hacking the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee – which includes the personal cell phone number, physical and email address, as well as full personal information of some 200 congressional Democrats.

The next day, Saturday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she had to change her cell phone number after receiving “scores of mostly obscene and sick calls, voicemails and text messages.” Pelosi added that she was on a flight from Florida to California when the information was released, and received the unwanted messages upon landing.

I really shouldn’t laugh, but I just can’t help it.

Pelosi said the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has hired a cybersecurity technology firm to investigate the breach, which she termed “an electronic Watergate break-in” and that the Capitol Police were looking at any threats posed by the release.

Meanwhile, just 24 hours after Guccifer 2.0 posted the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spreadsheet on Guccifer 2.0’s WordPress account, the Democrats are bracing for even more hacked documents being released. Another site, DCLeaks.com, released internal records from George Soros’s Open Society Foundations.

U.S. officials insist the Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks hacks, as well as the hacked DNC and Hillary emails posted by WikiLeaks, are the work of Russian intelligence services, although the Obama administration has yet to show any evidence to substantiate the allegations.

Rep. Jim Himes (D., Conn.), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said in an interview on Sunday: “I certainly believe that this is a coordinated Russian effort against the U.S. political process. It’s an act of hostility by a foreign power.”

U.S. officials are now debating whether to publicly accuse Putin’s government of the hacks, which could escalate a potential case of cyberwar between the U.S. and Moscow.
