Trump Presidency More Dangerous Than War With China

In the ongoing destruction of America and devolution to a Third World Tinpot Dictatorship, a Trump Presidency would be the first step of into a deep abyss.

The Economist rates Trump presidency among its top 10 global risks

Warning: Vote Trump and get terror threats, trade wars and currency crashes.

A Donald Trump presidency poses a top-10 risk event that could disrupt the world economy, lead to political chaos in the U.S. and heighten security risks for the United States, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit.

Electing Trump could also start a trade war, hurt trade with Mexico and be a godsend to terrorist recruiters in the Middle East, according to the latest EIU forecasts.

The well-respected global economic and geopolitical analysis firm put a possible Trump presidency in its top 10 global risks this month, released Wednesday. Other risks include a sharp slowdown in the Chinese economy, a fracture of the Eurozone, and Britain’s possible departure from the European Union.

Trump’s controversial remarks on Muslims would be a gift to “potential recruiters who have long been trying to paint the U.S. as an anti-Muslim country. His rhetoric will certainly help that recruiting effort,” said Robert Powell, global risk briefing manager at EIU.

Until Trump, the firm had never rated a pending election of a candidate to be a geopolitical risk to the U.S. and the world. The firm has no plans to include Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz or John Kasich on future risk lists.

“It’s highly unusual, and I don’t think we ever have done it where we’ve had a single politician be the center of our risk items,” Powell said in an interview, but noted that the firm has once included the transition at the top of the Chinese Communist Party as a top-ten risk as well.

“Innate hostility within the Republican hierarchy towards Mr. Trump, combined with the inevitable virulent Democratic opposition, will see many of his more radical policies blocked in Congress,” wrote EIU. But “such internal bickering will also undermine the coherence of domestic and foreign policymaking.”…More Here

The old Drumph Party…And the New

Up until 1940, the largest Nazi Party in the world behind that in Nazi Germany…Was in the United States.

Today, the US fascist faction is the largest.

American Nazis, 5,000 strong paraded in Chicago in the 1930’s

Chicago paper publishes prescient history of local Nazis hours before Trump rally explodes into chaos

A well-timed article  in the Chicago Reader on Friday morning described the rise of a local Nazi party — just hours before a Donald Trump rally that drew thousands in Chicago had to be canceled due to protests.

On June 18, 1939, between 4,000 and 8,000 people gathered at a location that used to be known as Merrimac Park for a meeting of the  German-American Bund whose stated mission was to “defend the Constitution, Flag, and Institutions of these United States of America.”

Despite those altruistic goals, there was little difference difference between the nationalism of the Bund and the Nazi Party in Germany.

The event that began with “The Star-Spangled Banner” — and ended with the Hitler salute and German hymns — was attended by several hundred men and boys dressed in uniforms similar to those worn by Nazi storm troopers.

According to the Reader, the Nazi movement in Chicago began 15 years earlier as the Teutonia Society, puckishly described as an “anti-Semitic drinking society” and Hitler fan club that eventually went dormant.

With the rise of Nazism, workers hit hard by the Depression began to flock to the reinvigorated organization and soon the Chicago chapter claimed to have over 500 members — including 40 storm troopers that performed weekly military drills.

In March 1936, the German-American Bund was created and led by naturalized citizen Fritz Kuhn, a Detroit chemist with a flair for organizing.

Remarkably mirroring Donald Trumps meteoric rise for the GOP presidential nomination, historian Sander A. Diamond wrote of Kuhn, “His bombast, propensity for exaggeration, and lies were part of his technique.”

The group portrayed itself as a deeply patriotic organization, however it took its cues from the German Nazis: stating that Jews controlled the press, radio, movie studios, schools, courts and banking. Allegiance to the Nazi Party was enforced with two students reportedly assaulted for refusing to salute the Nazi flag.

In 1938 fights broke out between the Bundists and those who attempted to bring an American flag into a meeting hall, leading to 150 police officers being dispatched to stop a possible riot among 5,000 protesters.

The Bund eventually dissolved amidst claims of financial shenanigans, with Kuhn accused of embezzlement.

After Nazi Germany declared war on the U.S., Kuhn had his citizenship stripped and was deported to Germany where he died in poverty in 1945.

Republican Lindsey Graham – “Trump Is A Race Baiting Xenophobic Religious Bigot”

Wow!
One of the last 2 actually qualified candidates on the Clown Bus just took a major dump on Trump. Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina is a long term politician from the state, and is one of the most respected Republicans in the Senate. His expertise being foreign affairs, and he sits the Committee on Armed Services, which has oversight over the Military and DoD. He has been hammered by the extremist right for compromising to keep important functions in the government working, and called RINO (Republican in name only) for not toeing the increasingly fascist and racist line of the extremists.

Montel Williams Goes to War Over GOP Racism

Ol’ Montel is definitely getting charged up…Amazing that he has finally realized exactly what he has been supporting all these years.

Montel Williams goes to war against “paranoid” GOP “bigotry” and takes Fox News down with it

Navy veteran and talk show host Montel Williams wrote an opinion piece for Fox News in which he wondered whether the tenor current GOP primaries means that “if America’s best days are behind us.”

“[W]hat I’ve seen since the Paris attacks has shaken me to my core — to a point in which I no longer recognize the America I devoted 22 years of my life to protect,” he wrote.

“In the past, I could rest easier, knowing the overwhelming majority of Americans would see this for what it is — bigotry — playing to the irrational fears of a portion of the population to curry favor, which takes a page out of a very dangerous playbook the world answered with ‘never again’ some 60 years ago,” Williams added. “The fact is, we can no longer rest easy because polls show a huge majority of the Republican electorate currently supports Trump, Carson or Cruz.”

Statements like these have not gone over well with supporters of candidates on the GOP ticket. In the comments to the editorial, Williams has been informed that he doesn’t “like hearing the truth [because he] belongs to a failed race,” and “Montel is high on Obama crack!” On Williams’ Facebook page, people have opined that it’s “it’s too bad MS hasn’t taken you off this earth yet,” and that he’s just expressing “that ‘offended’ mentality again.

Williams told Salon that he “was thrilled that Fox agreed to run the piece as I’m sure it hasn’t gone over well with many. I’m about speaking truth and what I say has never changed based on the audience I’m speaking to.”

“I wrote this piece because I’m at my wits end with the GOP,” he added. “I still consider myself conservative, but I long ago abandoned the party because I could see it being dragged down a path of intolerance and I see no place for myself, as a black American in the GOP proper, much less one who refuses to tell women what to do with their bodies, one who is a proud but responsible gun owner, one who as a matter of faith and principle cannot abide bigotry whether it be toward Muslims, LGBT individuals or anyone else.”

He was moved to write the piece after learning of the hate crime perpetrated against a Muslim cab driver last Thursday. “When I read about a Moroccan cabbie being shot by a fare after being quizzed about being Muslim on Thanksgiving, I had to to speak,” he said. “That Moroccan cabbie, an immigrant, so eloquently described what it means to him to be in America that I had to speak.”

Ex-Soldier Saved Lives With Dying Breath at Planned Parenthood Massacre

The right-wing extremists leading the Republican Party are now in full backpedal mode after one of their disciples murdered 3 people and shot 9 at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado. This is a direct result of the hate speech directed at Liberals and Minorities. This brave ex-Soldier perhaps prevented the toll from being worse…

Iraq vet used dying moments to warn others after getting shot by Planned Parenthood terrorist

Ke’Arre Stewart, the Iraq War veteran gunned down by right-wing terrorist Robert Louis Dear on Friday, used his dying moments to tell people inside the building to take cover.

According to NBC News, Stewart, 29, had stepped outside the building to use his cell phone when he was shot by Dear, who killed two other people and injured nine in the attack. Stewart, a devoted husband and father of two, rushed into the building in spite of his injuries and shouted for everyone to take cover.

His brother Leyonte Chandler told Today on Monday morning that Stewart’s military training must have compelled him to help others in the line of fire.

“I believe that’s his military instinct, you know: Leave no soldier behind, leave no civilian behind, just leave no one behind,” Chandler said. “So he ran back inside, trying to help out others. I don’t know where he was at, as far as how many more breaths he had, but he knew. And before his time ran out I guess that was his main priority…to help and save other lives.”

“He tried to run back inside the building — well, he did — and tell the other people inside, you know, ‘Take cover, get down.’ People started taking cover, hiding in bathrooms and whatnot,” Chandler recounted.

“People were terrified, people were crying and scared, seeing other people get shot,” he continued. “I believe my brother put his life on the line to prevent that. That’s definitely heroic.”

During his five-hour rampage at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood location, Dear killed police officer Garrett Swasey and 29-year-old mother of two Jennifer Markovsky.

When police apprehended Dear, he revealed to them that the shooting was motivated by his belief that Planned Parenthood is engaged in the illegal sale of fetal organs, a right-wing myth propagated by the anti-choice movement and anti-abortion extremist groups like the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), which released a series of misleading videos accusing the health provider of running a ruthless, bloodthirsty trade of embryonic human tissue.

“No more baby parts!” ranted Dear to police.

Anti-abortion conservatives like presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz have tried to defray blame for the shooting, making false claims that Dear was a “transgendered leftist activist.”

However, many are calling on the media and public officials to call Dear what he really is, a right-wing, Christian terrorist.

New Fascism Spreads From America to Australia

White Student Union Picture –

University of Queensland condemns ‘racist’ Facebook campaign for white student union

The University of Queensland has condemned a “racist” Facebook page attempting to garner support for a “white student union” on its campus.

The so-called University of Queensland White Student Union page was created this week and purports to be “a safe place to support and promote the interests of domestic students of European descent” at the university.

The first post published on the page contains a rant about the number of international students enrolled with the institution.

“We’re forced to do group work with internationals who can’t speak English. We carry the load and do all the work, while our marks are dragged down,” it says.

“We’re forced to put up with the antisocial behaviour of a particular group of students who treat study spaces as social spaces and constantly attempt to ‘reserve’ public resources, such as computers.”

The university released a statement today distancing itself from the page.

“The University of Queensland is in no way affiliated with the so-called University of Queensland White Student Union Facebook page, and no ‘white student union’ exists at UQ,” the statement read.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Joanne Wright said the university prided itself on diversity.

“We thoroughly condemn any attempt to undermine the importance of fostering an equitable society, both on campus and more broadly,” she said.

The page has 27 likes on Facebook, but has responded to the university’s statement, saying it plans to apply to become an official group next year.

“Our group has never claimed to be an ‘official’ club or society but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist,” it said.

“There are numerous student groups that aren’t UQU affiliated but exist nonetheless.

“If we have sufficient support from the student body we will apply to affiliate a White Student Society at UQ in 2016.”

Page part of larger US trend promoting white supremacy: UQ

The university said the page appeared to be part of a larger trend that has spread from North America, where dozens of similar pages have appeared, each claiming affiliation with university communities.

According to US media, “white student union” Facebook pages have popped up at colleges across the country in recent days, including at Princeton, Berkeley and Stanford.

The pages are suspected to be in response to a wave of anti-racism protests which have been taking place on campuses this month.

The trend come days after photographs of black Harvard Law faculty members were defaced on the university’s famous Boston campus.

Judge Strikes Down Welfare Drug Testing in Florida

A Florida Republican law requiring all Welfare recipients to pass drug testing has been put on hold by a Federal Court. The law is unconstitutional, due to the fact that it violates personal protections against the government invading a citizen’s privacy without reasonable evidence of wrongdoing. Statistically, Republican legislators in the state are more likely to use drugs than welfare recipients.

So… In view of the legislators ability to royally screw everything up for everyone…

Why don’t they pass a law that all elected officials in the state are regularly tested?

Federal judge temporarily bars Florida’s welfare drug-test law

A federal judge has temporarily blocked a controversial Florida law requiring all welfare applicants to be drug-tested.

U.S. District Court Judge Mary Scriven issued a temporary injunction Monday evening against enforcement of the law’s “suspicionless drug testing” of adults seeking federal welfare.

The law went into effect July 1, but a single father and the American Civil Liberties Union contend in a lawsuit that the new law is unconstitutional and violates Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure.

“Perhaps no greater public interest exists than protecting a citizen’s rights under the Constitution,” the judge wrote, quoting a 1997 Hawaii case.

Under the law, the Florida Department of Children and Family Services requires the drug tests of adults applying to the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program. The aid recipients are responsible for the cost of the screening, which they recoup in their assistance if they qualify.

Those who fail the required drug testing may designate another individual to receive the benefits on behalf of their children, but they do not receive a refund for cost of the test.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott has championed the law, saying it provides “personal accountability.” He added it was “unfair for Florida taxpayers to subsidize drug addiction.”

Florida is not the first state to pass such legislation. Michigan passed a similar law that was found to be unconstitutional by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2003 for violating the Fourth Amendment…

The GOP-controlled legislature passed the bill, and Scott signed it into law in May 2011.

“The governor obviously disagrees with the decision and he will evaluate his options regarding when to appeal,” said his deputy press secretary Jackie Schutz.

Since campaigning for governor, Scott has said that the drug-testing of welfare recipients “will help to prevent misuse of Florida tax dollars” and make sure the money goes to the children.

“Research shows higher drug use among individuals receiving government assistance, and drug abuse also forces children into welfare assistance,” Scott said while signing the bill into law.

The ACLU said the state’s own study found that of the 2,000 people who took the state drug test, only a small percentage tested positive.

“It shows that a little bit more than 2% of the welfare applicants tested positive for drugs where it’s about 8½% in the general public,” said Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida.
