Vladimir Putin Is More Popular Worldwide Than Donald Trump Is, and other fun stuff

Barack Obama is 12 places higher than Donald Trump. Michelle Obama is 18 places higher than Melania Trump.

The number of people who believe in 'Pizzagate' and believe President Obama was or was probably born in Kenya is quite similar to the number of Trump supporters (deplorables). At least 3/4 of Trump supporters hold these demented beliefs. If you like I will do the math for you. 

35% of the poll respondents say it is true or probably true that the Hillary Clinton campaign was involved with satanism, human trafficking and pedophilia. 34% say that it is true or probably true that President Obama was born in Kenya. 

Trump's approval is 42-43%, so we can see that there is about 8 or 9 pts of room for Trump supporters that are not complete nutcases. So there are some Trump supporters who are not evil or mentally or psychologically messed up, but they are a distinct minority.

Trump's campaign rally Wednesday night echoed a modern day lynch mob, as Trump paused for 13 seconds to listen to his handiwork


As thousands chanted “Send her back!” at a campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., Wednesday night, the president paused to let it amplify.

He listened for 13 seconds, as the stray shouts stretched into a uniform roar. Some raised campaign signs or fists to the rhythm of the crowd as they yelled. Some only murmured along. A few were children, following the lead of the adults sitting in front-row seats behind President Trump.

“Send her back! Send her back!” they yelled in unison, advocating for deporting Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), an American citizen and refugee, to Somalia, where she was born.

The chanting echoed Trump’s own racist comments on Sunday, when he suggested that four minority congresswomen, including Omar, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” rather than remain in the United States.

But while Trump’s response to the condemnation was familiar — doubling down, with the support of an enthusiastic crowd — Wednesday’s chanting alarmed many observers who suggested the president’s invective could endanger the safety of the minority congresswomen and feed the country’s ugliest impulses.

“This is the sound of illiberalism, intolerance,” Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, said on Twitter. “Listen closely: it’s a danger not just to immigrants and minorities but to all Americans.”

Donald Trump doesnt force his supporters to echo his racism, they do it willingly.  Sadly, we see every that many outside of Trump's base are willing to give Trump supporters a complete and total pass. This incredible indifference is eating away at the soul of our country.

I am going to quote another newstalkers member. I will assume , given his comment, that he would not object.

Imo, what is odd, I hear on the news and people say, don't engage in the rhetoric. Don't stoop to their level. Be above the hatred and incivility.

I have to ask...what has been received for it? What have we gained?

When a bully attacks is the response to live and let live? To act as it didn't happen?

When one lets someone walk all over them, sometimes it will not stop until one turns it back on them.

All that is happening now, again my opinion, is people letting trump get away with what he does are normalizing it. 

I get what you are saying yet I don't see it doing any more harm than the people at a trump rally yelling send her back...

It is time people did stand up instead of being a victim. Though it is something I am afraid the Democrats don't have a spine to do.

What do you think people should rise up against?

Delusions of nazism?

An economy that is on fire due to the removal of Obama regulatory economic obstruction?

Low unemployment? Lowest minority unemployment in history?

If you want a different president you should probably look for someone with an economic plan that looks to build on the current path. Obama regulated American more than any other administration in our history and it failed miserably.

Your argument boils down to,  " as long as I have a few more bucks in my pocket I dont care what kind of asshole leads the country. "

Its just sad that people actually feel this is the right thing to think and to say. 

The increase in wages now as compared to the increase in wages at the end of Obamas term amounts to about 1 percent. For someone making 40,000 dollars a year or less, which is roughly half the country, that amounts to 8 dollars more in their paycheck per week, before taxes.  The economy is not "on fire" for such people.  But even if it was, there are other things besides making an extra buck or two. 

Donald Trump is a criminal. He did a tax fraud scheme with his parents. He's a low life, he has lent his name to pyramid scheme multi-marketing, he's a pathological liar, he is an ignoramus. 

Lindsey Graham just spoke to reporters. He said that if Ilnar Oman would only wear a MAGA hat Trump wouldnt tell her to go back to Africa. In other words, if you disagree with Trump , Trump has the right to tell you to leave America. 

You might like this insane behavior by the president of the United States, but the majority of Americans dont. He has never had a majority of Americans supporting him.

Well, hell, John, I know you didn't get approval to post that. How dare you infer that the economy under Obama wasn't as great as you have tried to make it out to be before. Remember all the times when you gave Obama all the credit for the economy under Trump?

Are you now admitting that was nothing but a huge steaming pile of bullshit?

Sorry, John, but it is simply undeniable that you have given Obama much of the credit for today's economy. But now you seem to be saying it really isn't all that great. Can you just decide which one you are going to claim today?

When you arent making little sense you are making none. 

Yes, according to wage information, the increase in wages year to year during Trump's first two years is a little better than the increase that was taking place in Obamas last couple years. The difference for people who make 15-20 dollars an hour is about 20 cents an hour.  People who would have been making 15.30 if Obama's increase continued into 2017 and 2018, are making 15.50 under Trump's administration. 

What we dont know is what they would be making if Hillary Clinton had won the election. Unless you think no one would get a raise if Hillary were president. She is very corporate friendly, it is highly likely the economy would have performed roughly the same under Clinton as it has under Trump.

Right, no one knows, so it is mere speculation on your part to claim the economy would have been the same or different under her.

Utter bull shit. When Obama was sworn in he was handed a burning sack of shit for an economy. He had to do anything and everything to keep it from complete collapse. But you go ahead and carry on with your fairy tales.

What?  Way more complicated than that.  

More than 30 years of deregulation and reliance on self-regulation by financial institutions, championed by former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan and others, supported by successive administrations and Congresses, and actively pushed by the powerful financial industry at every turn, had stripped away key safeguards, which could have helped avoid catastrophe. This approach had opened up gaps in oversight of critical areas with trillions of dollars at risk, such as the shadow banking system and over-the-counter derivatives markets. In addition, the government permitted financial firms to pick their preferred regulators in what became a race to the weakest supervisor." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Financial_Crisis_Inquiry_Commission

It will be interesting when some finally realize that regardless of the balderdash pabulum they spew in their continual unabated unbridled hatred of President Donald J. Trump, that the rest of the world, well, really doesn't give a shit about their hate, vitriol and diatribes.

Then some might actually enjoy the fantastic growth and prosperity this country, is experiencing.  But then again, they might understand their own hatred when hell freezes over.

You are quite correct, President Donald J. Trump IS "KING OF NOTHING", he's only the President of The United States, the wealthiest, most prosperous, most powerful nation on the planet.   There are NO Kings that can make that claim.

Yeah?  What's your point?   Try building a 'church' in many other countries, and leaving that country would be your best bet, assuming you survived long enough to get to the border.

While America has it's warts, it's still the best country in the world.  So, yeah, love it, or leave it.  You do have that option.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’  Matthew 7:21-23

Racist? Perhaps more through his ignorance than his complicity, as evidenced by his illiterate words and his campaigning needs. Facist? He has no social agenda, rather an eye laser focused on self-preservation and wouldn't understand the definition or ramifications if you schooled him. In either case, certainly not worthy of the post. Just an opinion offered by a dyed-in-the-wool independent.

Party means nothing. Values still and will always matter.
