The Magical President doesn’t exist: What the left must really do to defeat the wingnuts


Jueseppi B.:

As a 54 year old Black man, who is in danger of dying every time I step out my front door, I don’t think I’ll take advice from a caucasian woman on who’s to blame for lack of action on the systematic genocide of Black Americans, by caucasian law enforcement across AmeriKKKa. President Obama and The Department Of Justice were responsible for the fiasco in Ferguson. The DOJ was created to take on cases of civil & human rights violations and EVERYTHING that happened in Ferguson was a violation of both rights. While the President golfed and attended weddings, people buried their children, from Eric Garner to Mike Brown to #MichelleCusseaux

#JohnCrawford
#EzellFord
#ClintonAllen
This is why we elected President Obama, to protect United States Citizens, not have more concern for Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Israel. There is a war zone right here at home to care about. The militarized police used tear gas on unarmed journalist, reporters and protesters. 

Thank you Ms. Kstreet for allowing me to express facts & truth on your blog forum.

The myth of a president who can solve our problems alone is inane. The big task right now? Rescue these midterms

Labor Day marks the traditional kickoff to election season, and all Democrats can say for themselves about the coming midterms is: Things look bad, but they could be worse. Republicans will almost certainly gain Senate seats, and could very well take it over, though their chances diminish every time we hear new audio of Mitch McConnell and his GOP cronies sucking up to the Koch brothers at their last retreat. But traditional low midterm Democratic turnout could make McConnell the Senate majority leader in January nonetheless.

This political season opens against a backdrop of profound pessimism, captured in an August…

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away. ~Philip K. Dick

Comment by John: “It is something you would think the Right Wing of American Politics would have learned by now . . . but alas!

When many radical righties get their hands on “Reality” their first impulse is to revise it . . . but in the long run it never quite works out for them because the American People are a lot smarter than to be taken in by such deceptive manipulations of fact . . . such re-invention of reality.

I think that fact about American Perceptions bodes well for the future because it could eventually spell the end of Rightie Extremism’s political agenda . . . an agenda which I believe is nothing short of totally annihilating American…

Did you know that this Labor Day is the 120th anniversary of the national celebration? Former President Grover Cleveland signed legislation in 1894 making Labor Day a national holiday.

I wasn’t going to write any post about Labor Day today. There are plenty out there. However, I ran into the information above ….. 120th anniversary of such an important day!

As with many holidays, the main thing is getting the day off, celebrating the beginning or ending of summer, going to the beach, the ever present BBQ. 

Usually there is so much more than that and how easy we forget!

MESQUITE (KSNV MyNews3.com) – ‘One of the sons of embattled rancher Cliven Bundy’s son has pulled his five children out of various Clark County School District locations after a dispute with school administrators’.

‘Officials at Virgin Valley High School in Mesquite told Ryan Bundy that his 15-year-old daughter was not allowed to bring her pocketknife to school’.

‘Clark County School policy states that pocket knives are not allowed on school property, as they are considered weapons’.

“I’ve taught my children a knife is important to have,” he said. “It’s a tool that you use, and you…

1. Putin spokesman softens statehood push for eastern Ukraine
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday called on Kiev to begin talks about granting “statehood in southeastern Ukraine.” Yet after the blunt remark riled Western observers, Putin’s spokesman, Dmitri Peskov, said he wasn’t calling for independence per se — just greater autonomy for southeastern Ukraine under its current national government. The U.S. and its Western allies have imposed sanctions to punish Russia for its support of separatists and its March annexation of Ukraine’s breakaway Crimea region. [The New York Times]
