Republican Watch

People who say "Democrats are as bad as Republicans" are almost as bad as Republicans.

For discussion of politics, and what's going on in the world today.

This is seriously fucking disturbing even by Fox News' standards...

After Iranian missile strikes, Fox personalities push for war against Iran

I had a friendly conversation with a Christian on what it means to be a Christian today.

For the record, when you post a twitter screenshot; it's pointless blurring out names. You can just search twitter for the text of the post and find it. As I just did, and yes... that Tom is a fuckwit!

Geraldo embarrasses Fox & Friends host by pointing out America did actually shoot down an Iranian jetliner

“Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy tried to corner guest Geraldo Rivera by asking him what would have happened if America had shot down a commercial jetliner like the Iranian government appears to have done with a Ukrainian plane that was in its airspace during the time it launched its missile attack against a base in Iraq where American military personnel regularly stayed.

While discussing the downed plane, Doocy asked Rivera, “Can you imagine if the United States of America accidentally shot down a jetliner?”

Rivera, however, didn’t miss a beat and pointed out that the U.S. actually had done that in the 1980s.

“Well, you know Steve, we did in 1988,” he replied. “It was an international, uh — well not a scandal, but a big debate. Our guided-missile frigate Vincennes, in the Gulf there, shot down an Iranian passenger liner. 290 died, including over 60 children. And it was something that took us years to live down.”

Co-host Brian Kilmeade, however, tried to downplay the accidental destruction of the commercial airliner by saying that the United States “paid a lot of money” to compensate the families of the hundreds of people who died.

'Stephen Miller Shared Idea of Shipping Undocumented Immigrants out of the U.S. on Trains as Scare Tactic, Leaked Breitbart Emails Reveal'

White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller railed against Republicans he saw as too weak on immigration and suggested Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients would one day replace white Americans, leaked emails to Breitbart News between 2015 and 2016 show.

The Southern Poverty Law Center's "Hatewatch" section published its latest series of emails Tuesday which were leaked by an ex-Breitbart editor. The emails reveal Miller pitching white nationalist and vigilantly anti-immigrant ideas to the right-wing publication while he was a rising GOP aide to then-Senator Jeff Sessions and later a top Trump campaign policy adviser on immigration. Miller's latest leaked messages show he shared an article from far-right website WorldNetDaily with Phyllis Schlafly, who suggested the idea of shipping immigrants out of the U.S. on trains as a scare tactic and expressed fears that migrants might "replace existing demographics."

Some of my thought this month in a blog.
http://esapolitics.blogspot.com/2020/01 ... hment.html
main point on the parties:
In any case, the Republican party was taken to where they are now by the Tea party and a final push by Trump into this racist corner. They will have a hard time coming out of there.

How American politics goes
1 Republicans cut tax, let everything run down to barely working...8 years
2 Democrats fix public spending to normal...8 years

According to a recent piece in Politico, Mark Levin was a major source of Trump's current ideology.

"Trump’s Art of the Steal" | Politico

In the early to middle part of the previous decade, Trump’s proto-political operation was essentially a two-man team—there was Roger Stone, now a felon, and there was Stone’s protégé, Sam Nunberg. One of Nunberg’s self-appointed tasks was to help Trump understand what the masses on the right really wanted. And one way he did that was by listening to Mark Levin’s increasingly popular radio show. The people who were tuning in most intently to Levin, Nunberg thought, were the people most likely to vote for Trump if he launched an actual bid. “Donald Trump,” Nunberg told me, meaning his candidacy, meaning his victory, “would never have happened without Mark Levin.”


Nunberg is definitely a flake, and not to be relied upon to provide accurate information. Still, I think the article presents a credible narrative.
Serious, but not entirely serious.

I was going to say it’s a miracle of the modern age, but I’m sure the ground apes were fucking things up just as badly before we were all around to notice. It’s just for some reason, one never expects to be present during such ‘interesting’ times.
