    Down With Trump 6/6/16

    Donald Trump has gone from a popular entertainment-business celebrity and punch line, to being the most important political figure in the U.S. this year, for the following reason: He states precisely and publicly the Republican agenda on which policy is based and laws get passed. He has therefore attracted millions of American right wing conservative voters, who have spent the last 100 years listening to Republicans saying everything couched in political correctness or something decent-sounding, instead of exactly what the racists are thinking. Republicans are like spiders; they're cannibals. For example, after George W. (okay, Cheney) enacted 100% Republican policies and the nation subsequently went to pot, they distanced themselves from him. This, of course, is not to be confused with the Democrats' simple stupidity, keeping Obama off the campaign trail because his approval ratings were low. The Republicans' whole design and process has been consistently evil, without any changes for 100 years. Foster racism, hate, fear and stupidity among the voters, and feed greed at all costs with a genuine preference toward oppressing women, nonwhites, the disadvantaged and basically the non-rich. Here's Dick Cheney's terrorism legacy: Needlessly ruin air travel for everyone (except the rich), needlessly invade everyone's privacy, needlessly start two wars, needlessly murder innocent people at G-Bay, and last but not least, oppress and abuse foreign visitors to this country, legal or not, even more than they were before. The Russians warned us that the Tsarnaev brothers had gone to Pakistan and trained with Al Qaeda; but those Russians - what do THEY know! The FBI did its own investigation, and when they finished (antagonizing the brothers even more than they were) they concluded that: "Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, they're not black...they're not poor...and they're not illegal immigrants. Cut 'em loose!!!! Let 'em go!!!!! Can't you see we're too busy spending $trillions annually to go after blacks and illegal immigrants?!?!? The fact that all the terrorists are legal and well-funded doesn't matter, We just HATE immigrants! And it's a matter of "safety" and "security" even though not one terrorist act in history has ever had anything to do whatsoever with an illegal immigrant." Anyway, the Republicans decry THAT Trump says what he says, not WHAT he says, which is exactly what they all believe. They want things to be the way they were, when they could publicly pretend they're not evil, ignorant Christian religion-perverting racists.

    Obama's Immigration Legacy

    Very simply, after millions of Hispanic voters helped Obama win two elections, he proceeded not only to hang them out to dry; he threw them to the wolves. Initially, the president dillied and dallied, treating Republicans as reasonable, practical, reality-based people (a fantasy) and refused to do anything when he had the chance. Meanwhile, he blithely allowed bloated, $multi-trillion murdering entities like ICE, Homeland Security and the Border Patrol to run wild; meanwhile local authorities reveled in completely ignoring any federal "procedures" or "recommendations." Basically, he's the opposite of Truman. The very next day after giving a major speech from the White House Rose Garden, pledging that "We're only deporting 'criminals'," someone walking - not even driving - to work that morning in Framingham, MA was accosted by a person demanding their visa and papers, and subsequently arrested for deportation. Obama's legacy is First: that he did nothing good, except delay the deportation of a bunch of kids who came here as babies. Second: he authorized the aggressive deportation of more simple, law abiding immigrants than several previous administrations combined, thereby breaking up countless families; essentially what would have been expected had McCain or Romney been elected.

    Trump's latest tirade is that Republican delegates who break their pledge should never be allowed to run for office again.

    Maybe if Donald could have them tortured, it would be easier to keep them in line.

    Roger, do you really believe that Trump would torture people who oppose his election?

    Well, Nolan and Roger: Obama's ambassador Mamet in Buenos Aires is torturing this senior American professor by keeping with FRAUD the monies my spouse spent with the American Chamber in Argentina and the local Embassy, while not letting me go back home with her to meet with family and friends. Mr. Trump couldn't be worse...

    Nolan, I don't know what Trump would or would not do if he becomes president. But it is a very dangerous and disturbing sign that he now says that he likes waterboarding "a lot", except that it isn't "tough enough".

    This is not the way people who respect the law and are committed to democracy speak. It is the way that brutal dictators throughout history have tried to hold on lo power by repressing and terrorizing their own citizens.

    But let's suppose that Trump only wants to torture ISIS fighters, as he claims. That is still a violation of U.S. federal law punishable by up to 20 years in prison, or even by death, if the torture results in the death of the victim.

    See 18 U.S.C. Sections 2340 and 2340A.

    Trump's supporters are now trying to make a big megila about Hillary's emails, since neither Vince Foster nor Benghazi worked out very well for the Hillary-haters. But here is a major party candidate running for president who is openly promising to violate a federal law that could get him up to 20 years in prison.

    Doesn't advocating the use of torture (and we are not jsut talking about waterboarding, in view of Donald's claim that he would do worse than that if he were president), which is not only a serious criminal offence under US law, but is strictly prohibited under international law as well, beat allegedly mishandling an email server, even if some of Hillary's messages might turn out to have been classified?

    But one would never know this from biased pro-Trump media such as The Hill, which as of today's writing (July 3) is running no less than seven stories about Hillary's emails (plus one about Benghazi, for good measure), and not a single item about Trump's torture agenda, which goes against everything America stands for and would destroy the essence of our democracy, as well as being utterly abhorrent to all civilized people everywhere.
