Trump Would Hire Carson for His Administration!

Yup – The Donald has said it! He has in mind a place for Ben Carson in his Administration…

Trump: Would ‘Absolutely’ Hire Carson For My Administration

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump said Friday he’d “absolutely” hire another top-tier candidate, Ben Carson, to be part of his administration, but he didn’t say in what position the retired neurosurgeon, who is in second place behind him in the polls, would end up.

“I would love to have that,” he told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, pointing out that he doesn’t know if Carson would be a tough negotiator because he “would say it’s not his wheelhouse.”

But in “certain elements of administration,” Carson would be “very good,” Trump said.

He described Carson as being “a nice man” with whom he has a “good relationship.”

“I’m sure he’ll hit me,” said Trump. “So far, we’ve had a good relationship.”

Also, he said he believes Carson is qualified to be the president, because “if he’s running and if he wins, he’s qualified; that’s the way the system works,” but Carson or anyone else will not “be able to do the job I’m going to do.”

The polling has been “amazing” for both men, Trump said, and when you add the numbers together, “in some cases you’re up to 55 to 60 percent.”

Yep, Uncle Ben will look downright spiffy!

Or perhaps a leadership position…

Donald Trump’s White Nationalist and KKK Supporters

Time for Sean Hannity to call out the “Usual Suspects”, Uncle Jesse Lee Peterson, or his newest darling Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee to deny they have seen any white hooded robe types and to provide race protection for bigoted whites.

Time for Uncle Ben Carson to make a speech about “There aren’t any bigots here” for fame and money,

Sturmfeurher Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant and increasingly racist rhetoric i bearing fruit -as the minions of the white nationalist and racist right gather round…


Behind Trump, the GOP Really Is Becoming the Racist Party

The Donald is getting the backing of the white supremacist crowd, and the GOP from Priebus on down says nothing. Draw your own conclusion.

Let me offer some friendly advice to the Republican Party that I learned firsthand as a Muslim American: You don’t want to be defined by your most extreme members. And here’s a little more advice. The longer the GOP leadership remains silent as Donald Trump garners increasing support from white supremacist organizations, the more likely the GOP will become known as the party of racists.

I know, some of my progressive friends will say that’s already the case. But that’s not fair. Sure there are racists drawn to the GOP, just like we have seen psychopaths attracted to Islam. I’m sure not all Republicans are racists and I bet some are even disgusted by bigotry.

We are, however, seeing a bone chilling attraction to Trump by white nationalist groups. It’s almost like they view Trump’s candidacy as their last stand against the changing demographics of America. He’s become the poster child for their philosophy that “White Lives Matter More.”

For example, just last week David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux, publicly praised Trump as the best Republican candidate in the 2016 field because he “understands the real sentiment of America.” Duke applauded Trump’s views on immigration that call for mass deportation of families, saying that Trump is”speaking out on this greatest immediate threat to the American people.”

Trump’s tepid response to Duke’s glowing praise was troubling to say the least: “I certainly wouldn’t want his endorsement. I don’t need anyone’s endorsement.” When pressed by a reporter to repudiate Duke, Trump responded, “Sure, I would if that would make you feel better.”

Duke, however, is far from the only person tied to white supremacist or hate groups publicly endorsing Trump. Last week, white nationalist radio host James Edwards, a man who has warned against interracial marriage, called slavery “the greatest thing that ever happened to” blacks, and featured a “roster of white supremacists” on his show, publicly endorsed Trump.

Trump has also been touted by neo-Nazi websites such as The Daily Stormer with articles like, “We are all Donald Trump Now.” And as Media Matters set forth in detail a few days ago, the list of white nationalist leaders supporting Trump is alarmingly long.

The issue is not just that these hate groups see something they like in Trump. These groups have the right to endorse anyone they like. The more alarming issue is Trump’s failure to publicly to condemn them….

Trump “Deports” Hispanic Journalist From Press Conference

Jorge Ramos is a well known, respected journalist who is an anchor for Univision. Univision is the largest Spanish Language Cable station in the United States, reaching nearly 50 million Hispanic listeners in the US and overseas.

Jorge was asking Trump about his immigration policies…That wan’t good for the Donald.

Hispanic Journalist Kicked Out by Trump

Journalist Jorge Ramos was kicked out of an Iowa press conference Tuesday while trying to ask Donald Trump a question. Trump yelled “Go back to Univision” while refusing to take a question from Ramos. He was later allowed back in to the press conference, at which point heasked Trump how he would deport 11 million people to which Trump responded: “Very humanely.” “Do you know how many Hispanics work for me? Thousands,” Trump said later in the exchange. “You know how many Hispanics have worked for me over the years? Tens of thousands.” Ramos later said, “My job was purely journalistc. My job is to ask questions.”

After protests by other journalists in attendance, Mr Ramos was let back in to ask questions… What ensued was a donnybrook.

“Anchor Babies”…The new and improved “N-word”

Seems the Republican Presidential candidates are all in a furor over “illegal immigration”, and want to repeal the 14h Amendment which guaranteed birthright citizenship to 3 million former slaves living in the US after the Civil War.

Even more interesting this brouhaha is about Hispanics, supposedly sneaking across the border to have babies to claim citizenship though their American born kids – despite the fact that the vast majority of folks coming to the US to have “Anchor babies” are wealthy Chinese. And they are not sneaking across the border to do so.

So what the right is really up in arms about is the brown N88765rs coming here, not based on any evidence they don’t contribute to he economy, don’t pay taxes, or commit crimes…Just the fact they aren’t white.

Anyone ever watch the TV Show, the Americans? It is based on a cold war effort by the Soviet Union to bury “sleeper” spies in the US, who would live in the US as American Citizens, and whom could be activated to commit sabotage or terrorism against the US in the event of war.

With the extent of China’s complicity in ongoing  hacking of US Computers to steal corporate and Military secrets, placing spies in the US, and economic terrorism – and cyber attacks against American infrastructure….Seems to me it is far more likely that Wan or Le, born in the US of A by a mother who used the “Birth Tourist” evasion – is a heck of a lot bigger threat than Akbar or Miguel digging a tunnel under the border.

But then…Racism really doesn’t have to make any sense.

Ken Burns: Donald Trump’s birtherism — a “politer way of saying the ‘N-word’” — proves America isn’t remotely “post-racial”

On CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday, esteemed documentary filmmaker Ken Burns carefully explained to those who don’t believe the primary cause of the Civil War was slavery exactly why they’re incorrect.

“If you read South Carolina’s articles of secession,” Burns began, “the first state to secede, the birthplace of secession, home of the original fire-eaters — they do not mention states’ rights, they mention slavery, slavery, slavery.”

That we have to remember,” he argued, though he admitted that it’s also more complicated than that. Still, Burns continued, “that’s the reason we murdered each other, why more than two percent of our population, more than 750,000 Americans died, more than all the wars from the Revolution to Afghanistan combined, was essentially over the issue of slavery.”

The problem, Burns said, is that “we’ve grown up as country with a lot of powerful symbols of the Civil War in popular culture [like] ‘Birth of a Nation’ — D.W. Griffiths’ classic — and ‘Gone with the Wind.’” Both of those films postulate that “the Ku Klux Klan, which is a homegrown terrorist organization, was actually a heroic force in the story of the Civil War. So, it’s no wonder that Americans have permitted themselves to be sold a bill of goods about what happened — ‘it’s about states’ rights,’ ‘it’s about nullification,’ ‘it’s about differences between cultural and political and economic forces that shaped the North and the South.’”

The danger associated with this willful misunderstanding of American history is that it obscures the fact that “race is always there, always there. When Thomas Jefferson says all men are created equal, he owns a couple hundred human beings and he doesn’t see the contradiction or the hypocrisy and doesn’t free anybody in his lifetime, set[ting] in motion an American narrative that is bedeviled by a question of race.”

“And we struggle with it. We try to ignore it. We pretend, with the election of Barack Obama, that we’re in some post-racial society,” Burns added. “What we have seen is a kind of reaction to this. The birther movement, of which Donald Trump is one of the authors of, is another, politer way of saying the ‘N-word.’ It’s just more sophisticated, a little bit more clever. He’s ‘other,’ he’s different.”

When in point of fact, Burns concluded, the only thing that’s “other” about the president is “the color of his skin.”

Trumposity! The Donald Announces Fellow Republican John McCain “Not a war hero”!

The Clown Bus theater gets better every single day!

The bombastic bloviate and presidential candidate in his own mind, announces that John McCain “is not a war hero”.

McCain earned the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart and Distinguished Flying Cross, being held in the infamous “Hanoi Hilton” for over 5 years – tortured and beaten almost daily..

He may not be the brightest bulb in the pack (he graduated 5th from the bottom of his Naval Academy class) but the guy served as a pilot in Vietnam, and was shot down bombing Hanoi… He certainly is no coward.

Trump’s opinion at 1:49.

There Goes the Hispanic Vote…Dump Trump!

Geez – I imagine that the Republican strategist types are having nightmares right now. It is beginning to look like Republicans are going to have to settle for getting about as much of the Hispanic vote, as they get of the Black vote. Which isn’t much.



Poll finds Hispanic disapproval of Trump rhetoric on illegal immigrants

…The Univision News Poll, conducted by the independent research firm Bendixen & Amandi International with the Tarrance Group, shows that 7 in 10 Hispanic registered voters say they have an unfavorable impression of the New York businessman. Nine in 10 Hispanics say they have heard about Trump’s comments and, when read specific remarks, nearly 8 in 10 say they find them offensive…

Trump’s low ratings in the Univision poll closely reflect results from a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, which found 81 percent of Hispanics giving an unfavorable rating…

Hispanics remain an overwhelmingly Democratic voting bloc, according to the new survey by Univision. Asked to identify themselves by party, just 16 percent of Hispanic voters describe themselves as Republicans, compared with 58 percent who say they are Democrats and 26 percent who say they are independent. Roughly 2 in 3 Hispanics say they have a favorable impression of the Democratic Party while a slight majority say they have an unfavorable impression of the Republican Party…

Six in 10 Hispanics say the Democratic Party’s overall position on immigration is in line with their own, while only 20 percent cite the GOP. The issue of the path to citizenship could provide motivation for some Hispanic voters in 2016. A slight majority (54 percent) say they are more likely to back a candidate who supports a path to citizenship or legal status.

Hispanic voters are also more aligned with Obama’s overture to Cuba and the effort to normalize relations than with widespread Republican opposition to the moves. Overall, 46 percent of Hispanics say the Cuba issue will not factor into their voting decision in 2016. But by a 2-1 margin, the others say they are more likely to support a candidate who favors normalization of relations.

The Univision poll was conducted June 12 to 25 among 1,400 Hispanic voters interviewed on conventional and cellular telephones.

The following is from PEW Research and describes the battleground before Trump. If the Hispanic vote moves from 73% in 2014 for Obama to 85% for the next Democrat candidate…

It’s all over but the whining.
