Trump: I’m all alone…there’s no one here beside me….

Published

The president needs friends. They’ve all abandoned him like he just ate a taco bowl with extra cilantro. That’s what pulling your punches with neo-Nazis will do for your social life.

No more CEOs to kick around.

Trump’s approval rating is at the lowest it’s ever been, just when we thought it couldn’t get lower. It’s 35 percent.

The Marist poll found 60 percent of voters view Trump unfavorably — his highest level of unpopularity since January — and 34 percent have a favorable view of the president.

Sixty percent of Americans also do not feel Trump is honest and trustworthy, compared to 37 percent who believe Trump.

It doesn’t matter that some of the stuff Trump says is right. He went into that forbidden place of making Nazis look good. So really, any possible defense, by definition, violates Godwin’s Law.

In fact, Godwin himself agreed the J. Crew tiki brigade is a-okay to be called Nazis, So that leaves nowhere else to go, except out of the room. If you, like Gen. John Kelly, are forced to be in the room with the press while POTUS is filling it with foul flatulence, you best hold your nose (he did).

That doesn’t mean Trump has no friends. It’s just that his friends are somewhat unavailable to be with him. Not counting his Pepe-loving friends (whom nobody wants), 25 percent–give or take–of Americans love him.

Asked if they could “think of anything that Trump could do, or fail to do, in his term as president that would make you disapprove of the job he is doing,” about 60% of Trump supporters said no, according to a new nationwide poll released by Monmouth University in New Jersey. That’s equivalent to about one-quarter of all Americans overall, given Trump’s current level of support.

That’s about equal to the number who, even if Trump emerged in Virginia with a brand new soul and a cross of gold, gave away all his money, and acted presidential for the rest of his term, would still hate him with the heat of a thousand uneclipsed suns.

At the other end of the scale, most of those who disapprove of Trump said that they could not “think of anything Trump could do, other than resign, in his term as president that would make you approve of the job he is doing.” They made up 28% of the total, just slightly larger than the 24% who said they would support Trump no matter what.

The Iranians are making fun of him; Kim Jong-un thinks Trump is crazier than he is.

In an emergency come-home call, Vice President Pence is flying home early to change the presidential diaper.

The White House–in exile in New York or New Jersey–better figure out what it’s doing. Maybe Hope Hicks can be David to Trump’s Saul and calm him when an evil spirit from God comes into him.

Perhaps they should stay in Bedminster and not return to the Dump in the Swamp.

Clearly, this presidency is not going well. And just when we say to ourselves, “it cannot get any worse,” Donkey comes out to give a press conference. I really don’t know what he could say that’s worse than giving a pass to Nazis. Maybe insult the pope (again)?

An intervention of major proportions is in order here. Let’s hope someone talks some sense into him, because 25 percent of Americans who worship him might soon find themselves unemployed, ostracized, and generally treated as pariahs, or they might be forced to change their tunes.

Kyrsten Sinema’s socialist thoughts now exemplify over half of Arizona

Kyrsten Sinema's socialist thoughts now exemplify over half of Arizona

Arizona can no longer be considered a red state. As the Senate election vote counts finish up, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema appears poised to win. It isn’t that a Democrat won that makes me move Arizona from red to purple. It’s that a socialist in moderate clothing was able to pull the wool over the eyes of Arizona voters so easily.

Just an hour of research is enough to break through the Arizona mainstream media’s false narrative that Sinema is a moderate. She is anti-capitalism, in favor of open borders, and had the lowest Liberty Score of anyone in the House representing Arizona.

Then, there’s this:

“A huge dollar bill is the most accurate way to teach children the real motto of the United States: In the Almighty Dollar We Trust… Until the average American realizes that capitalism damages her livelihood while augmenting the livelihoods of the wealthy, the Almighty Dollar will continue to rule. It certainly is not ruling in our favor.”

Arizona chose poorly.

Trust in Chicago area police was already low. Then they killed Jemel Roberson.

Trust in Chicago area police was already low Then they killed Jemel Roberson

An armed security guard prevented anyone from getting killed when gunmen returned to his bar after getting thrown out. He subdued them without using deadly force and was restraining one of the alleged assailants when police arrived. That’s when a resolved situation turned ugly.

A Midlothian police officer shot and killed Jemel Roberson, 26, while responding to a shooting inside Manny’s Blue Room Bar in Robbins, Illinois, about 4 a.m. Sunday. Roberson was pronounced dead at the scene.

This appears to be a case of a truly decent person doing his job and losing his life as a result.

Security guard killed by police in Robbins bar wanted to be a cop, friends say

https://wgntv.com/2018/11/12/officer-responds-to-gunfire-fatally-shoots-security-guard-at-robbins-bar/Friends said Roberson was an upstanding guy who had plans to become a police officer. He was also a musician, playing keyboard and drums at several Chicago-area churches.

“Every artist he’s ever played for, every musician he’s ever sat beside, we’re all just broken because we have no answers,” the Rev. Patricia Hill from Purposed Church said. “He was getting ready to train and do all that stuff, so the very people he wanted to be family with, took his life.”

“Once again, it’s the continued narrative that we see of shoot first, ask questions later,” the Rev. LeAundre Hill said.

My Take

Chicago area residents have had many reasons to not trust the men and women charged with keeping them safe. Controversial police-involved shootings, rising crime rates, and tone deaf leadership in city, county, and state governments have been pushing people in the area to give up on law enforcement.

This will make matters much worse.

The optics on this couldn’t get much uglier, especially if the unnamed police officer who shot Roberson turns out to be Caucasian. Roberson, an African-American, was able to detain four assailants without anyone getting fatally wounded. The fact that he was then fatally shot by police adds a new dimension to the rift between police and the people.

In most incidents where police are believed to have used deadly force unnecessarily, it’s a matter of them shooting an alleged criminal when other means of subduing them could have been used. Such is the case with Jason Van Dyke who fatally shot Laquan McDonald. Nobody argued that McDonald wasn’t dangerous. He was high on PCP, had a knife, and was walking in the middle of the street despite police warnings for him to drop the weapon and get on the ground.

Roberson’s situation is the opposite. He was doing his duty as a security guard and very likely saved lives in the process. His death is almost certainly going to start another round of racial tensions and anti-police protests that could cause tremendous turmoil throughout the Chicagoland area.

There is usual gray area in police shootings, but this seems pretty black and white to me. Jemel Roberson acted heroically. Instead of a happy ending for the day and a bright future in law enforcement ahead, he’s gone.

Stan Lees 10 greatest comics

Stan Lee has died. While modern audiences probably know much more about the Marvel movies and televisions shows that dominate our viewing pleasures, it was his genius in creating so many beloved comic book characters decades ago that fuels Hollywood today.

Looper put out a video with his greatest comics. These subjective lists are usually fodder for debate, but I was so pleasantly surprised by their choices I decided to post it here. It may be the first time I agree with nearly everything in a video top 10 list. Fitting that it surrounds an icon like Lee.

From his quirky cameos in every Marvel movie to his down-to-earth perspectives present in every interview, there’s plenty to love about Stan Lee. But it was his comic book creations that have made a permanent mark on American culture.
