In a campaign built on alienation one cannot be surprised when the end result is division.
It's pretty bad when the combatants in America's Intraracial War are those who the current administration claims to represent.
It's pretty bad when a white, gun toting, small business owner from flyover is so upset that he decides to take matters into his own hands.
And now the blame-game begins.
A) Obama's fault.
B) The Media's fault.
C) Comedians' fault.
D) Obama's fault.
Our government is under attack
and not just from ISIL, Immigrants, Non-Christians, Minorities, LGBTIQ, Feminists, Liberals, MSM, ...
As the recent troubles between Congress, the White House and our intelligence community show - we are under attack from within.
We are witnessing an Intraracial Civil War in which even old dissatisfied white guys can't trust other old dissatisfied white guys.
Disinfowars' Alex Jones is sure to pick up on the recent attack on Republican lawmakers and explain to us all that the event was orchestrated by the Trump administration, in conjunction with Putin's America-based minions, to deflect our attention away from the (alleged) collusion in our recent presidential election between the two former adversaries.
I'm sure someone will latch onto the Representative from Louisiana being connected to David Duke who is connected to Put in who is connected to Trump which is why he was shot.
But why would Republicans want to stage a failed attack on one of their own?
Republicans are seeking sympathy for their party after their inability to get legislation passed, even though they control the White House and Congress, threatened to expose their inutility.
Republicans brought in experts from previous False Flag operations. Veterans who were those behind the scenes in: Aurora, Sandy Hook, London, Boston, San Bernardino and their very successful covert operation at the Twin Towers, among many others.
Trump needed a unifying operation to draw attention away from those seeking to sue the POTUS for (alleged) emoluments violations.
With China's recent approval of at least ten Trump trademarks - Trump is preparing to make billions in a country of billions.
Everyone knows that Trump doesn't want to be President.
What Trump wants is to be rich.
The longer Trump is in office the more money he makes.
Trump refused to disclose his tax returns because Trump is not really as rich as many people think.
Trump's whole identity is based on his being seen as one of the richest and most successful men in America.
Trump's 'power' comes from his affection of wealth and influence.
Trump doesn't really own anything - foreign governments do - Trump is just the manager.
(And, NO. No research was done for this post. I just cobbled together a bunch of conspiracy theories to form another incoherent trope which we are sure to see some variation of in the coming weeks.)
I didn't vote for the guy - I voted for myself. (C'mon, you know that the crybaby blame everyone but herself Hillary wasn't any better.)
The thing is: I don't think Trump is too worried about the Comey testimony - Trump's withstood worse.
The thing that this acquisitive and aspirational man covets the most is acceptance, veneration even.
What Trump seems to care about the most is whether people care about Trump.
Trump is a showman - all smoke and mirrors.
Don't get me wrong, I'm almost elated that the guy won the Presidency.
Trump and his supporters have laid bare the underlying thoughts and beliefs held by many in America.
Trump has, in effect, broken the relative racial, social and political truce with which we were living under Obama.
The election of Trump and it's ensuing circus has shown the American people how politics actually function - often even at the local level.
Trump, I think, has gotten into a situation for which he was ill prepared.
I think Trump (and many of his followers) assumed that the country could be run the way he ran his reality show.
I don't think the core group of Trump followers - as well as Trump himself - were as well versed in how politics functioned at the national and international levels as they thought.
But hey - just view this presidency as a market correction.
As a chance to expose the collusion between the media, industry and the government and their efforts to acquire and retain power at any cost.
Trump may turn out to be a great POTUS - probably not but whatever - or Trump may not even end up being just a good president but the thing is: Trump is definitely the right president at the right time.
Trump may end up actually proving the theory of the useful idiot.
Trump and all his apparent lunacy may finally expose the real thinking of many in America today and demonstrate the tangible consequences.
Trump may just prove and expose how corrupt our country really is.
Well, that didn't work out like she planned and now the comedian is complaining that she is being bullied by the Trump family?
WTF is up with all these snowflakes tossing around trigger words to gain sympathy for microagressions or their own mistakes?
Maybe I'm old but back in my day we shut up and took our licks - be it a paddling at school, a fight at the playground or a beating by our elders.
Back in my day our errors were not justified by coddling parents who were worried about our feelings or in building a false sense of confidence.
Back on my day we knew that there were usually consequences to our actions.
How can someone be bullied when it was they who started the fight?
I'd have to agree with Miss USA - healthcare is a privilege not a right.
I know, I know - people need healthcare.
So what - people need food too but people still have to pay for it.
California is set to vote on a bill which would provide healthcare to all of its 39 million residents at a cost of $400 bn. (Some studies say that the program would save the state $37 ml annually)
The thing is, I think there should be some type of universal coverage.
-The Veterans Health Administration covers about nine million individuals.
-Indian Health Services covers about 2.2 ml Native Americans.
-Medicaid/Medicare cover another 44 ml people.
Why can't all of these programs be combined under one umbrella program?
Add to this another 11 ml covered by Obama care.
I'm sure if these programs were merged that they could be used as a template for Universal Health Care for the entire country.
(Just gratuitous photos of a tall (5'10"), fit woman with her OWN natural hair and no waist-trainer.)
Trump just misspelled 'CoV-Fefe' - no big deal.
I explained earlier that Trump thinks he's a rapper and the HPIC (Head Pimp in Charge).
If Lil' Wayne can expand the meaning of 'Bling-Bling' you know Trump just had to outdo him by creating a new word himself.
You know he's using Urban Dictionary and not one of the traditional sources.
According to Urban Dictionary;
CoV - Confirmation of Victory.
Fefe - Originating in Chicago, meaning: a party.
Covfefe - "A Victory Party".
Trump was just throwing shade at Obama because Obama stole some of Trump's shine during their concurrent trips to Europe.
Trump knows that Chicago is Obama's adopted hometown so The Donald wanted to speak in a way that Obama would understand.
Trump learned not to say things like 'pussy' - that would be indecorous.
What Trump was tweeting was in essence 'Suck My Dick' - but he can't tweet that.
'Victory Party Motha-fucka' ' wouldn't work either.
Yep that's it.
That's the meaning Sean Spicer was hinting at.
And y'all thought Trump had no Street-Cred.
Concerning to whom the fault of oppression belongs; "We are not all equally guilty but we are all equally responsible" - Rabbi Abraham Hescel
Concerning blaming others for the problem; "...And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?... - Matthew: 7 1-5
Concerning how to fix the problems concerning oppression; "Someone once said that the word 'motivation' should never be used in the singular. Some combination of motives always exist and it's impossible for anyone to qualify the proportion of each that is involved in any given act" - Warren Buffet (in an interview in the USA Today)

Other People's Blogs About Politics, Race, Social Change
Although I'm pretty tired of the "Race is King" mantra usually put forward by past and current polemics, race-relations (and the improvement of such) is always a good topic of civilized conversation. I've been called "Uncle-Tom" more times than I've been called "N-----". When I volunteer at the local Habitat for Humanity, I'm often the only black working who's not trying to get a house. When I volunteer at the local shelter, I'm usually the only black on the giving end. Something is wrong or deficient with Black-culture (as it is practiced today). Don't say that I don't know the ghetto, I'm originally from the ghetto. My ghetto-pass wasn't pulled, like my middle school I.D., it expired. I graduated. Now, I say middle school because too many blacks haven't graduated from high school. (Detroit, anybody ?) Please feel free to bring up any topic but please refrain from misusing epithets and downgrading others. Thank you, UBJ
