What was actually said by President Trump in regards to the Charlottesville, Virginia violence. Would also like to comment we have a new VA Clinic in my area, a new cemetery for Veteran's that we wrote to a congressman and got so our soldiers could have a place to be buried in Monterey and VA care has improved immensely. I now spend less than 15 minutes waiting for my appointment when it used to be 2-3 hours.

Without military, police, and people to fight the wars and protect our country, we would have no country.

True.

But, without the far right Heather Hale would have her life.

Trump needs to condemn them directly, not vaguely - lumped in with everyone else - even the victims.  I thought him a disingenuous, power hungry creep before.  Now I also see him as a racist, a bigot and possibly a coward too.

I would call him a POS, but manure is valuable to us farmers.

AAAAAAAARGH!  I have run out of words.  I am off to have a bath. He has made me feel dirty.

Barrack Obama refused to use the words "Radical Islamic Terrorism" after the San Bernardino terrorist attack.

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2015/dec/11/war-words-fight-over-radical-islamic-terrorism/


When President Barack Obama spoke to the nation on Dec. 6 about the San Bernardino attacks from the Oval Office, he didn’t even use the words Islamic State.

Instead, he referred to the group as ISIL, an acronym for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a word denoting a region of the Middle East that covers several countries, including Syria.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is among several candidates who say Obama’s verbal preferences speak volumes about his inability to lead the fight.

"The broader solution is a commander-in-chief willing to speak the truth, willing to name the enemy — radical Islamic terrorism — and willing to do whatever it takes to defeat radical Islamic terrorism," Cruz said in a Washington news conference Tuesday. "When you have President Obama telling the nation that the Islamic State isn’t Islamic, that’s just nutty."


http://www.cbsnews.com/news/obama-avoids-calling-terrorism-islamic/

At a White House conference on violent extremism, Mr. Obama appeared to take pains to separate Islam from terrorism.

Critics fault the president for not labeling the terror Islamic, and at a private Republican gathering in New York Wednesday night, former mayor Rudy Giuliani went even further.

"I do not believe that the president loves America. What's wrong with this man," asked Giuliani, "that he can't stand up and say there's a part of Islam that's sick?"

comment: There is a real flaw in logic here. Just because a group likes Trump doesn't mean he is linked to them or is one of them.  Just because someone wants equality for all people, doesn't mean he is a racist.

Obama stuttered and made more mistakes in his speeches to the point where some think he had brain damage from his early cocaine use. Either his memory was flawed or he was terribly dishonest.

How does Trump feel about the KKK and White Supremacy groups?

This last statement is better.  It should have been sooner.  The damage was already done.  But, better late than never.

Obama led the administration that removed Osama Bin Laden, but he could have spoken more clearly too.  

So no one is wreathed in glory.  Two wrongs do not make a right.

After facing bipartisan criticism for his initial statement over the weekend, Trump was direct in his condemnation Monday. 

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence. It has no place in America,” Trump said.

He added, “Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

Well, it appears that Herr Tumpenfuhrer has repeated/reiterated his first statement.  He has had time to think about it and, it appears, that his concern for voter numbers in the far right outweighs his care for the dead and injured or their families.  

I have no doubt that the left-wing protesters failed to behave in a peaceful fashion.  Angry people often do.  They seem to have had good reason to be angry.  That does not mean that they started it and they clearly caused less death and injury.

Herr Trumpenfuhrer says that he has watched all the footage and there were "bad" behaviors on both sides.  I have no way of telling if that is true.  I was not there.  I have watched all the footage I can find both on TV and online.  I could not make out who started anything.  On balance of probability, I find it hard to believe there was a significant amount of bad left wing behavior, as there seem to be no reported injuries on the far right. 

So, if they started it, show us the footage.  If there is footage only Herr Fuhrer has seen, he can show it to us.  If not, then he is proven to be a liar as well as a racist.

The far left violence and the media's obsession with pandering to them is not working. Trump is not a racist, he does not support the Klu Klux Klan nor the white supremacist and is not secretly connected or supporting them behind the scenes. The press, for the most part , is delusional. I think this was well phrased in an article I just read by Herman Cain on Fox -

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/08/16/herman-cain-trumps-critics-cant-make-racism-claim-stick.html


Critics and the liberal media can’t make a claim of racism stick against President Trump, former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Wednesday on “Hannity.”

Speaking amid the controversy surrounding Trump's comments about the racially-charged violence in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, Cain said attempts from the president's opponents to change the narrative have failed.

“They couldn’t make ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ stick. They couldn’t make ‘refugees, refugees, refugees,’ stick. So, now the desperate attempt is ‘racism, racism, racism,’” Cain said.

“But here’s what they don’t understand: the American people are not stupid. Those people that are supporting Donald Trump because of the results he is getting and he is trying to get are not going to persuade Trump supporters to move over to the dark side. They have not just crossed the line, they’ve gone over the cliff. And the only people that are going over the cliff with them are those people that are just as deceived and deranged as they are. That’s what this is all about,” Cain said. “It’s their desperate attempt to try and get people to follow them off the cliff.”

comment: I find reading most of the headlines about Trump painful. And I would repeat...

“They couldn’t make ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ stick. They couldn’t make ‘refugees, refugees, refugees,’ stick. So, now the desperate attempt is ‘racism, racism, racism,’” Cain said.

The effort to get him impeached for some delusional idea he was in some sinister plot with Russia while Hillary Clinton was in many sinister plots and providing pay for play for our enemies and is still under investigation.

The press cannot resist having people cyber rolling on the floor beating the crap of each other verbally in a parody of the Jerry Springer show. One of the key lines of the people who refuse to accept Trump is "don't confuse me with the facts". 

And a new attitude about equality for all versus an obsession with civil rights is that this not a crisis - it is evolution. A time when we can rise about division and making race, gender, and religion so important and forcing it down the throats of everyone while crying out racism and hatred - when actually we need to unite. There are "bad boys and girls" on both sides of the fence with their pepper spray, helmets, and clubs bashing out windows and toppling statues.

We have truly dangerous gangs which are formed largely from immigrants, criminals which have been deported multiple times and come and hide in sanctuary cities, and minority organizations that truly hate white people and are as racist as any white group has ever been.

We were debating all this and it comes down to free speech. No one has the right to discriminate and yet people don't have to like anyone. They have the choice to not like any race, religion, or gender as long as they are peaceful. That is called free speech. People have the right to assemble and express their views. They have a right to protest without being attacked by others who feel they do not have to tolerate those whose views they find disgusting.

The colleges do not have the right to ban conservative speakers because "they don't want to protect them" versus liberals who feed upon the system.

I saw recently a statement "jobs don't help the problem of discrimination".

The reality is - the nation is prospering, the jobless rate is down, the border is more secure and we have just survived a standoff and a possible nuclear war because Trump did not wuss out in dealing with Kim Jong -un as the whole world watched.

The media can continue to ignore this and parade liberals and republicans who object to Trump saying both sides were wrong after being on the brink of nuclear war.

Give the man credit. The media cannot make it through a day without a slamming headline on Trump. It has become the heroin of the Social Justice Warriors getting their daily fix from CNN, Washington Post, and the New York Times. Get a life people. He won.  There won't be an impeachment, killing policeman and neglecting the military will not secure our nation or protect us all.

We have a whining press.  It is like the continual nasal chant of someone out of touch with reality saying "I don't like it".

The real issues are not whether transgenders have bathrooms or gays can buy wedding cakes from Christian bakeries. They are whether we have a strong, no-nonsense leader who realizes the world is a business. It really is people. It is largely about money, and 99% of what is done is done to make it. We had morals once, deeper values, and families with a father, a mother, and children.

We need that back. Not figuring how to take care of the fatherless families which is crushing our economy and mommy out working not able to raise her children. This doesn't work. It hasn't for 10,000 years and it won't now. We need to get back.

Perhaps a new generation will someday revolt. You will see super-religious people, a return to love and the daddy and mommy - and an end to obsession with trying to get votes by pretending to love the abused, the disabled, and whatever color you choose or gender, to get elected. Behind the scenes Hillary never loved the black people or Americans. There are videos showing the two-faced attitudes and statements of how and why she lied to the public.

You know - people who work don't have of time to protest. People who dedicate their lives to others and try to better our society as a whole, not just their race or group, have happy, fulfilled lives, money to spend and a place to live.

America has been shamed for 8 years. The foreign policy was bad, the health care a disaster, and the ray of hope and belief we would ever pull out of it, all words and no action.

In a short time after Trump was in office, we attacked Syria when a government backed by the Russian was using nerve gas on children.  They are making strides to take out ISIS (not ISIL) and our military is the strongest it has been in decades.

The Real News - we are doing better. You would never know that by the press who I think is mostly on crack and spaced out pushing for our 13 years old to use marijuana. They cannot fathom a president who believes in God versus trying to put up Satan statues in Oklahoma, or freedom for men to marry men.

2017 - I never with all my predictions imagined it would be like this and I pray to God it will get better.

Your first words, Med, were: "The far left violence...."  Just whom ended up dead, maimed or injured in Charlottsville?

I never did think Americans stupid.  Trump makes me want to rethink that.  Aside from the fact that his administration is so self conflicted he has only managed a few very minor changes, Germany have already shown the fallacy of the Trump-style leadership.  Repeating their mistakes is doubly stupid.

You said:  "And a new attitude about equality for all versus an obsession with civil rights is that this not a crisis - it is evolution. A time when we can rise about division and making race, gender, and religion so important and forcing it down the throats of everyone while crying out racism and hatred - when actually we need to unite. There are "bad boys and girls" on both sides of the fence with their pepper spray, helmets, and clubs bashing out windows and toppling statues. "  Well evolution was the big cry of the Nazis in pre-war Germany.  It led to eugenics, in a manner which gave eugenics a bad name!  As for unity, that is a president's first job yet Herr Trumpenfuhrer has sown discord even within his own party.

You said: "We have truly dangerous gangs which are formed largely from immigrants, criminals which have been deported multiple times and come and hide in sanctuary cities, and minority organizations that truly hate white people and are as racist as any white group has ever been."  Can you not hear yourself?  Yes there are.  But there are non immigrant, white gangs just as bad, sometimes worse, and often with less provocation.  YOU are being racist to single out only one group.  Crime is crime, irrespective of color, creed or any other distinction.  Show me the proof that the left started any violence at Charlottsville, if you can.  I can show you proof that they were the only side to lose anyone to violence.  As far as I can see the right were the only ones taking guns to the rally.

Your jobless rate is down, a bit, and who can say whether or not that was from this administration, or the policies, still working, of the previous?

As for the headlines on Trump: well why not?  Unlike him they are not lying and no amount of him tweeting "Fake news" makes them any less honest, or him more so.  They have oversight to stop them lying,he has been caught out by accident.

Christian values?  Don't make me laugh!  Jesus preached love, understanding, forgiveness and equality.  He did not judge anyone, except the moneylenders making a profit from religion at the cost of hardship to the poor = just like Trump's business dealings.  Caling yourself a Christian like he professes does not make you one.

You said about families:  "We need that back. Not figuring how to take care of the fatherless families which is crushing our economy and mommy out working not able to raise her children. This doesn't work. It hasn't for 10,000 years and it won't now. We need to get back. "  When it comes to raising children, they need love and time and care.  There is no gender/sexual distinction here.  Many "straight" couples have failed to provide this, and many have delivered judgments on children who did not meet their steriotypical values as well.  As for the fatherless ones, who increased the abortion controls?  Personally, I could never have one but denying it to other people means children born into loveless, fatherless situations.  I knew a young lady many years ago, before her suicide attempts, who was never adopted from her children's home as a child.  She never recovered from her rejection.  No one should face that.  She would have relished adoption by a gay couple.  She chose death as preferable to being an unwanted child.

Hilary had nothing to do with this argument.  Why bring her up?  

This is my favorite of your statements:  "You know - people who work don't have of time to protest. People who dedicate their lives to others and try to better our society as a whole, not just their race or group, have happy, fulfilled lives, money to spend and a place to live."  So how did the Alt-Right get there?  Did they astrally project from their offices?  Or did they teleport in their coffee breaks?

America has been shamed.  You were right about that.  But, it is Trump who was regarded as a laughing stock internationally.  We have (mostly) stopped laughing - now we are worried about the next Hitler in our midst.  The racisim Herr Trumpenfuhrer displayed, and is still displaying, is the most shameful part of all.

 I should also have said:  You claim to value the freedom of speech, but then verbally attack the left-wing protestors for exercising it, the press for encouraging it and anyone who speaks up against "Our Glorious Leader" including current* respected members of the Republican party not to mention past Republican Presidents.

The whole point of free speech is that it is free,.  That means pointing out what you disagree with, even when it goes against the party line.  That is both a right and a civic/moral duty!

Though I find Trump's racism disgusting and have many areas within which I disagree with him, he is entitled to hold, express and act upon those views.  However his attempts to disguise distort and deny the speech of others is the most heinous of his acts.  Calling anything which takes an alternative line, even when backed by proof, "fake news" is a symptom of that; so is accusing protestors for the "other side" names.

Well I have news for you Trump and your strumpetts.  There are still a few Americans who can think for themselves . They and the rest of the world can weigh up the actual facts as well.  "You can't fool all of the people all of the time." and we have heard the line "If you are going to tell a lie tell a big one." before too.  The media may not be trusted completely, but you make it look like gospel.  

Remember: America is not North Korea.

I have just seen Trump pontificating about the vandalism of the left wing towards the confederate statues in the south.  He just did it again.  He drew a parallel that did not exist saying what next statues of Washington or Jefferson.  There is no comparison.

For what it is worth I think the statues should stay undamaged and the vandals are just that, vandals.  The period in history commemorated by those statues was very different from today.  What we now know to be wrong was not understood by the Confederates.  Those men died fighting for what they believed in.  I believe they were wrong, as I think all civilized people do today.  But courage needs to be celebrated even when it is misguided.    They fought for their country and their families after all.  Even if you do not share that opinion, you still can't change history.  Removing the statues will not return one dead slave to life or liberty.  Hiding it just helps it to be repeated.  You can't learn a lesson you don't remember.

However you see the statues, the "Left" attack them because they see them as symbols of hate.  Washington and Jefferson have no place in that deplorable floccinaucinihilipilification.  It is disingenuous to make such a comparison.

Now I know how Trump became President of the Largest democracy in the free world.  Scum floats!

Don't hold your breath, Satori.  He is a clever and slippery fellow.  It took a long time to bring Nixon down.  Trump would take longer, he is far less naive.

A powerful Facebook reply to Trump from 91 year old British STAR TREK actor David Frankham

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/8/17/1690802/-A-powerful-Facebook-reply-to-Trump-from-91-year-old-British-STAR-TREK-actor-David-Frankham


David Frankham, the 91 year old British character actor from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s who might be best remembered for playing Lawrence Marvick, the tragic designer of the USS Enterprise, on Star Trek: The Original Series, recently posted a stunning response to Donald Trump on his Facebook page.

Many of us can condemn Nazis and Hitler in hindsight, in the abstract, but I’m afraid there are probably few left who can rebut Trump with the moral authority of having actually lived under attack from genuine Nazis.

“I make it a point not to get into politics on my Facebook page, but in light of our President’s comments on the murder in Charlottesville yesterday …

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides … We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”

… as a WWII veteran of the British Army, I just feel the need to say:

I feel no inclination to unite with people who proudly wear the same symbol that was painted on the airplanes that dropped bombs on me and my family in London every night in 1941.

I feel no inclination to come together with people who wear the same symbol as those who caused the family six doors down from us to be vaporized one night, replaced by a giant crater …

... who dropped the incendiary bombs which, as a teenager, I patrolled our school with a bucket of sand to find and put out …

... and who tattooed a number on the arm of my BBC colleague, Renata, who told me in 1948 that she would have been next in line for extermination, but for the end of the war.

Unlike our President, apparently, I have no problem naming and condemning Nazis.”

One of the biggest problems is we are seeing more and more violence in the streets and people applauding that violence. That terrorist attack in Spain - it will not be long before the battleground for ISIS is here and while we are arguing and fighting - there will be a nuclear attack and a loss of life in a major city making 9-11 look pale in comparison.

I realize I can write what I feel and see what I see - but I cannot change people's minds who do not see the danger in the division of America. Just as I predicted the Pandemic and had people clapping each other who said that it was a joke and then it spread around the Planet.

What is happening is very serious. It is taking attention away for the issues and problems that are much more important.  Congress is not doing its job they are so wrapped up in the soap opera and Democrats more interested in getting re-elected than the survival of our country.

Personally, my days on this planet are numbered. I am only a few weeks from an operation I may or may not survive.  I have a 10 year old son who cannot even go to school things are so bad and dangerous and only a few miles away from me is Salinas where the murder rate is bad and like Chicago.

The ones I love are losing their health care in this mess and vital services are being denied to them - dialysis which is keeping them alive - is not covered. I am about to lose another person who I was about to marry.

Perhaps it is fine for the armchair warriors to go on about things, but some of us who are old and veterans are watching as groups take over and many of us who are disabled wouldn't last five minutes on the streets.

When I am gone - and it is a sad posting in AFT - and these issues become worse - when the President is assassinated and there is chaos and the violence from both sides are at war in the streets and the police won't go in because it is just too dangerous - then people will understand.

My father died in 1999 and never got to see the year 2000 on December the 26th the day after Christmas. He was not here to see 2001 - 9-11 I was not a Space Odyssey - it was the beginning of the Al Qaeda - and then spying on every American and the end to privacy.

Perhaps many people find all of this humorous. I don't.

This cheering is going to result to some crazy person arming themselves and shooting our president.  It won't result in a Democrat being in office and the VP Mike Pence reflects most of Trumps values and policies. In fact, it will be worse for the Democrats because they won't be able to ridicule and make fun of Pence as they do Trump.

It will be judgement day.

I will be with my ancestors - but you all will still have to deal with this as well a very real threat from North Korea which will set off a war. As well not one but 2 Pandemics - maybe 3 will sweep the planet at once.. not if, but when.
