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.

Of Donalds…Duck and Trump

“I do not understand the cost-benefit here. The costs are clear. The benefits, what voter’s going to vote for him because he’s seen with Donald Trump? The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me. Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics,” said George Will on ABC This Week(Source: Mediaite)

Beginning to think that The Donald got the idea for that massive combover he wears…

From Donald Duck. Although it looks more like that worn by that other cartoon Duck…Daffy.

Daffy is brought to us by Looney Tunes…

Which seems a perfect name for The Donald’s venture into Birtherism.

I mean – even Huey, Dewey, and Louie know that one is bull.

Blitzer to Trump: You Look ‘Ridiculous’ on This Birther Stuff

Mitt Romney must be thrilled: On the night he is to clinch the GOP nomination, Donald Trump is stealing some of the thunder with his birther conspiracies, notes the Los Angeles Times. Just hours before Trump was to host a fundraiser in Vegas with the candidate himself, Trump went on CNN and argued with Wolf Blitzer about President Obama’s citizenship.

One highlight of the exchange, in which Trump accused Blitzer and the mainstream media of protecting the president from the birther allegations:

  • Blitzer: “Donald, Donald, you’re beginning to sound a little ridiculous, I have to tell you.”
  • Trump: “No, I think you are, Wolf. Let me tell you something. I think you sound ridiculous.”

Earlier in the day, Trump pushed his view that Obama hasn’t proved he is American-born on CNBC, notes Talking Points Memo.

Trump Dumped From Indy Pace Car

The Donald is beginning to find out exactly how treacherous political waters can be…

Especially when a candidate (him) descends into racism and lowbrow fearmongering.

Yet another place you won’t be seeing the Donald…

No Indy 500 Pace Car Drive!

Trump Bumped out of Indy 500 Pace Car

After facing increasing grass roots pressure, including a Facebook page with 17,500 likes urging his removal, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway announced today that Donald Trump has removed himself as driver of the Indianapolis 500 pace car in this years race. Quoted in The Indianapolis Star, Trump said the following:

“I very much appreciate the honor, but time and business constraints make my appearance there, especially with the necessary practice sessions, impossible to fulfill,” Trump said. “I look forward to watching the race from New York.”

This is the 2011 Indy Pace Car, a Camaro Drop-Top. Methinks the real reason Trump bailed on driving the car... Is the Comb-Over would never have survived!

2012 Election – Sno’ Ho’ vs. “Hair” Trump

You're Fired!

He has a hit TV show where he fires contestants…

She has a TV show where she fires at defenseless animals.

He made millions by cunning Real estate deals…

She made millions by conning conservatives.

He’s got hair…

She’s got hair.

The one thing he’s got she doesn’t,  is nobody in their right mind accuses “The Donald” of being stupid…

Whereas anyone with a mind, knows the Sno’ Ho’ is.

“Hair” Trump for President… Indeed.

Trump ‘really thinking’ about prez bid

Let’s get one thing straight: Donald Trump doesn’t want to run for president. Honestly, he doesn’t. Not interested.

But because the country is in such dire straits, he says, the business tycoon and perennial publicity hound just might have no choice. The country needs him.

“For the first time really would think about it. And I am thinking about it. It doesn’t mean I want to do it. I’d prefer not doing it. I’m having a lot of fun doing what I’m doing. It’s a great time to be buying things. I’m buying a lot of things and really having a good time,” Trump told Joy Behar Wednesday on HLN, CNN’s sister network.

“But I hate – you know, I’m very proud of this country. I’m very proud to be an American. And frankly, I hate what I’m seeing. I hate that friends of mine from Europe, from Asia, from all over the world – they’re telling me stories about this country,” the reality television host lamented.

Trump said President Obama particularly embarrassed America when he traveled to Copenhagen a year ago in a failed last-minute bid to secure the 2016 summer Olympics for Chicago.

“Our President flies over to see if he can get the bid. Now, he then comes back. We don’t end up not only in first place. We don’t end up in second place or third place. We were in fourth place,” said Trump.
 “Now, for the president of this great country to fly over there, he has to be given a wink. Like, come over, we’d love to have you. And you’re going to get it. I mean, do you know how bad we looked?”

Ultimately, it all comes down to respect for Trump:

“That shouldn’t be happening to this country. People are not respecting us. They are not respecting this country. And I hate to see it.”

Trump said earlier this year he will decide on a presidential run by June.
