Tea Party America Just Spent 7 Years Lynching our First Black President So What Chance Do You Think a Young Black Man in Ferguson Had?

  Since white Tea Party/Fox News/Republican Party America lynched President Obama in slow motion over the last 7 years, what chance did Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, who was shot and killed on Aug. 9, by Darren Wilson, a white police officer, in Ferguson, Mo., a suburb of St. Louis have? Eric Garner’s dying words "I can't breathe" as he was succumbing to a police officer’s chokehold reverberated in a wave of anger after a Staten Island grand jury declined to indict the officer … [Read more...]

Here’s (some of) what’s at Stake if the Republicans Take the Senate

WARIf Republicans gain the Senate majority in November, President Barack Obama will face pressure from Congress to send ground troops into Iraq and Syria."Frankly, I know of no military expert who believes we are going to defeat ISIS with this present strategy," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said at a Pacific Council on International Policy conference on last Saturday."We may be able to 'contain,' but to actually defeat ISIS is going to require more boots on the ground, more vigorous … [Read more...]

The EBOLA Lynching of America’s First Black President: Obama, Ebola, Religious Nuts and Racism

 Obama is black! They are black! He’s African! They are African! He wants to let them in with no travel ban! He wants us all to die! He hates America! He’s a secret Muslim! He wasn’t born here! He wants to take away our guns!The white/Fox News/Tea Party/Republican/American reaction to Ebola is moving into the high gear of xenophobia, victimology and fear of the other... and a thank-you-Jesus! phase of naked opportunism: Ebola is just what's needed to help win control of the Senate fo … [Read more...]

As we Head into the November Elections, the Ebola Outbreak is a Godsend for Republicans, Evangelicals, Racists and the Tea Party

 Let’s be honest as we head into the November elections to Christian Republicans in the grip of the "End  Times", the Ebola outbreak is a godsend for Republicans, evangelicals, racists and the Tea Party.From the Obama-hating apocalypse-loving, “End Times”-desiring rights’ point of view what could be finer by way of confirming all their xenophobic victimology than a global pandemic carried by black people? And this “plague” arrived when an African-not-bor … [Read more...]

Do You Know Who Launched the Shutdown? Hint: He’s Southern, a Birther, White and an Ardent Evangelical Who Serves as an Elder in His Fundamentalist Church

Do you know who launched the shutdown? Hint: He's Southern, white and an ardent evangelical who serves as an elder in his fundamentalist church. His name is Mark Meadows. Watch this news clip about him. It explains all you need to know about why it's a bad idea to have ardent evangelicals run for national office. They just don't live in a fact-based world.Of course America is on the brink because of religiously deluded conviction. Here's my friend Rachel Maddow giving a great explanation of … [Read more...]

No Place Left to Hide for the None-Too-Bright Delusional White Male Rubes Hijacking the GOP

The 40 Fools in Congress (the extremist driving this shutdown show) might as well be a global militant Islamist organization founded by Osama bin Laden in Peshawar, Pakistan. Speaking as the father of a US Marine who spent 2 tours in Afghanistan hunting for bin Laden, I say to the Tea Party/Congressional 40: Please take off those flag pins! After the faith, credit and economy of the US risks being shattered, then recovers, and this shutdown is all said and done, where do “patriots” like Lim … [Read more...]

President Obama Listened to a Heckler With Humility His Critics Are (Ususally) Wrong

 The president I know and love stood listening with respect to a heckler when he spoke today about closing Guantanamo prison. He is a big man in every sense of the word with a big heart. The "IRS scandal" and the "Benghazi scandal" are just more bash Obama "stories" that aren't about what they purport to be about. Liberals and far right conservatives have joined forces in writing off the Obama presidency so many times I’ve lost count. They did so from day one. Liberals did it by o … [Read more...]
