Last night John Oliver did an excellent job exposing the real Donald J. Trump, along with revealing his real family name, "Drumpf", that was changed a few generations ago for obvious reasons. The following link has the video of last night's show.
Please share with whoever you might know that is being drawn in by this pathological egomaniac (or maybe we should stay quiet and let dumbed down Unawted States of uh-murica vote for someone who truly represents the utterly ridiculous state of the divided and conquered union?)...
Nah, this is too important to let take its present course of ignorant action. PEOPLE NEED TO SEE THIS!

Very enlightening Chris though we haven't been fooled or taken in by his shenanigans...thanks for the laugh as well as the very pertinent data. If Drumpf is elected we may be the first to take up residence on Cape Breton, y'all wanna be our neighbors??
President Drumph! Man, is this really gonna go down? Kristyne,I wanna cometo Cape Breton with you!
My wife and I will also be looking to leave the country. Maybe buy a village in Spain
The establishment Republicans have vowed to fight it (even though they did this to themselves with all their previous manipulative tactics they have incorporated into the primary process, haahaahaa).
Hopefully we can look forward to a contested situation on the Republican side at the Convention. Entertaining and damn scary. Another thing that came up is that Trump would not be able to afford to self fund a national race for the Presidency. He would have to depend upon all those who are so excited for the prospect of the Drumpf Presidency Reality Show because the Republicans are obviously not going to fund it.
Oh, and the law suit against Trump court date concerning the now defunct Trump University is coming up this summer, so that will add some excitement to the ongoing political saga...
Welcome to Bizarro World!
My "fantasy trip outta here idea" was New Zealand in 2000 when GW stole the Presidency via the deciding vote by none other than Antonin Scalia. Now with global climate change I'm thinkin' Denmark or Finland (love taking 190F saunas)
Love the idea of Spain or Italy too, all those great sun-drenched year round tomatoes/veggies, yummmm
I have wanted to build something like a hobbit house for a long time. I did a seminar with Bill Mollison,the grandfather of permaculture in Santa fe years back. He showed me some photos of the houses he built down there, and I was hooked! I was never attracted to Europe until recently.Now I would like to road trip there just to visit all the old buildings on the ley lines.. And the veggies sound good!
Hey Chris, you know Denmark has a top tax rate of 62% and a 25% goods and services tax.....but free health, education etc.....and unlike Australia...old people can still get jobs!...
Hey Jez, lmao, are you implying some of us here are 'OLD'....this grama gonna have to challenge you on that!!! If my hair starts looking like 'the Donald's' well then 'ell you can call us old!
Nah not you.....I learned a long time ago not to get in fights with grandma's......Chris on the other hand........
Not only old, but now I'm a Grandma? Haaaaahahahaheeeheeehuuuuuu
ugh, I'm outta breath - must be old age....
and those tax rates don't bother me a bit when government truly cares about benevolent service to the commonwealth. one step closer to peace on Earth in a resource-based world economy...
From one Granpop to the youngsters We should all pay 100% in tax and then not have to pay money for any accommodation, services or food, that might work if we continued to contribute in the field we really had a passion about as opposed to the job that gives the best monetary return.
Just a thought????
New Zealand is GodZone you all know that Ehhh!!!!!
I would never call you a grandma, I called onesong a grandma.....I just insinuated you were old.....hehe
and yeah long live social services.......
I had a guy come for work from the netherlands a couple of weeks ago...took him into the city to buy an opal for his wife and then I fed him shark!..yes in melbourne, and nowhere else in australia....we eat shark......and it was interesting hearing the differences in things like taxes.....they also have electric cars and service stations with 10 minute fast charges....I didn't even know you could charge a car in 10 minutes...how cool is that!
We sure are living in interesting times! I'm thinking Peru...
The real question about Trump is "Is the enemy of my enemy, my friend?"

Louis CK on Trump:
P.S. Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the shit coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all.
And I’m not advocating for Hillary or Bernie. I like them both but frankly I wish the next president was a conservative only because we had Obama for eight years and we need balance. And not because I particularly enjoy the conservative agenda. I just think the government should reflect the people. And we are about 40 percent conservative and 40 percent liberal. When I was growing up and when I was a younger man, liberals and conservatives were friends with differences. They weren’t enemies. And it always made sense that everyone gets a president they like for a while and then hates the president for a while. But it only works if the conservatives put up a good candidate. A good smart conservative to face the liberal candidate so they can have a good argument and the country can decide which way to go this time.
Trump is not that. He’s an insane bigot. He is dangerous.
He already said he would expand libel laws to sue anyone who “writes a negative hit piece” about him. He says “I would open up the libel laws so we can sue them and win lots of money. Not like now. These guys are totally protected.” He said that. He has promised to decimate the first amendment. (If you think he’s going to keep the second amendment intact you’re delusional.) And he said that Paul Ryan, speaker of the house will “pay” for criticizing him. So I’m saying this now because if he gets in there we won’t be able to criticize him anymore.
Please pick someone else. Like John Kasich. I mean that guy seems okay. I don’t like any of them myself but if you’re that kind of voter please go for a guy like that. It feels like between him and either democrat we’d have a decent choice. It feels like a healthier choice. We shouldn’t have to vote for someone because they’re not a shocking cunt billionaire liar.
We should choose based on what direction the country should go.
I get that all these people sound like bullshit soft criminal opportunists. The whole game feels rigged and it’s not going anywhere but down anymore. I feel that way sometimes.
Louis C.K. Surprises Fans With ‘Horace and Pete’ Web Series Co-Starring Steve Buscemi
And that voting for Trump is a way of saying “fuck it. Fuck them all”. I really get it. It’s a version of national Suicide. Or it’s like a big hit off of a crack pipe. Somehow we can’t help it. Or we know that if we vote for Trump our phones will be a reliable source of dopamine for the next four years. I mean I can’t wait to read about Trump every day. It’s a rush. But you have to know this is not healthy.
If you are a true conservative. Don’t vote for Trump. He is not one of you. He is one of him. Everything you have heard him say that you liked, if you look hard enough you will see that he one day said the exact opposite. He is playing you.
In fact, if you do vote for Trump, at least look at him very carefully first. You owe that to the rest of us. Know and understand who he is. Spend one hour on google and just read it all. I don’t mean listen to me or listen to liberals who put him down. Listen to your own people. Listen to John Mccain. Go look at what he just said about Trump. “At a time when our world has never been more complex or more in danger… I want Republican voters to pay close attention to what our party’s most respected and knowledgeable leaders and national security experts are saying about Mr. Trump, and to think long and hard about who they want to be our next Commander-in-Chief and leader of the free world.”
When Trump was told what he said, Trump said “Oh, he did? Well, that’s not nice,” he told CBS News’ chief White House correspondent Major Garrett. “He has to be very careful.”
When pressed on why, Trump tacked on: “He’ll find out.”
(I cut and pasted that from CBS news)
Do you really want a guy to be president who threatens John McCain? Because John McCain cautiously and intelligently asked for people to be thoughtful before voting for him? He didn’t even insult Trump. He just asked you to take a good look. And Trump told him to look out.
Remember that Trump entered this race by saying that McCain is not a war hero. A guy who was shot down, body broken and kept in a POW camp for years. Trump said “I prefer the guys who don’t get caught.” Why did he say that? Not because he meant it or because it was important to say. He said it because he’s a bully and every bully knows that when you enter a new school yard, you go to the toughest most respected guy on the yard and you punch him in the nose. If you are still standing after, you’re the new boss. If Trump is president, he’s not going to change. He’s not going to do anything for you. He’s going to do everything for himself and leave you in the dust.
So please listen to fellow conservatives. But more importantly, listen to Trump. Listen to all of it. Everything he says. If you liked when he said that “torture works” then go look at where he took it back the next day. He’s a fucking liar.
A vote for Trump is so clearly a gut-vote, and again I get it. But add a little brain to it and look the guy up. Because if you vote for him because of how you feel right now, the minute he’s president, you’re going to regret it. You’re going to regret it even more when he gives the job to his son. Because American democracy is broken enough that a guy like that could really fuck things up. That’s how Hitler got there. He was voted into power by a fatigued nation and when he got inside, he did all his Hitler things and no one could stop him.
Google Chrome Filter Blocks Donald Trump From Your Internet
Again, I’m not saying vote democrat or vote for anyone else. If Hilary ends up president it should be because she faced the best person you have and you and I both chose her or him or whoever. Trump is not your best. He’s the worst of all of us. He’s a symptom to a problem that is very real. But don’t vote for your own cancer. You’re better than that.
That’s just my view. At least right now. I know I’m not qualified or particularly educated and I’m not right instead of you. I’m an idiot and I’m sure a bunch of you are very annoyed by this. Fucking celebrity with an opinion. I swear this isn’t really a political opinion. You don’t want to know my political opinions. (And I know that I’m only bringing myself trouble with this shit.) Trump has nothing to do with politics or ideology. He has to do with himself. And really I don’t mean to insult anyone. Except Trump. I mean to insult him very much. And really I’m not saying he’s evil or a monster. In fact I don’t think Hitler was. The problem with saying that guys like that are monsters is that we don’t see them coming when they turn out to be human, which they all are. Everyone is. Trump is a messed up guy with a hole in his heart that he tries to fill with money and attention. He can never ever have enough of either and he’ll never stop trying. He’s sick. Which makes him really really interesting. And he pulls you towards him which somehow feels good or fascinatingly bad. He’s not a monster. He’s a sad man. But all this makes him horribly dangerous if he becomes president. Give him another TV show. Let him pay to put his name on buildings. But please stop voting for him. And please watch Horace and Pete.
My guess is that there are ulterior motives to Mr Trump's strange candidate style. I think that he is actually trying his hardest to NOT get elected and makes sure he says at least one controversial comment at each public appearance.
Why would this be? Where he comes from he has bosses and he has to do what they want him to do. Otherwise he might have to go away for a few days and come back with a changed personality. Ouch!. He would just be a “puppet” to the Koch brothers. What do you do when someone else wants you to run but you don't think it would be good for the country? You run incompetently and make flaming controversial comments. That certainly is what Trump is doing here.
I really don't think that a billionaire would make a good president. They tend to have too many “irons in the fire” and would probably delegate the “president project” to an assistant. We all know the roll of president needs to be a full time thing and demands one's full attention. Trump wouldn't have the time for that (in addition to being a Koch brothers puppet).
I believe that candidate polls are not true scientific polls these days but have their results dictated - probably by the Koch brothers. It is painful to have to have the world think that Americans are really as bigoted as Trump is trying to be. They are really not!. If polls were as accurate as they used to be his comments would probably put him at the bottom of most polls.
Yet in his attempt to NOT get elected, I think Trump is actually doing the right thing and actually should be regarded as a HERO – yes hero.
I've never seen such reaching in my life. And so many people with their shorts in a knot, spouting such nonsensical, hysterical, chicken little goofiness.
Trump is not any of the problem the spouters are so dramatically afraid of, really he isn't.
The media and both parties have denied him from the beginning. Tried everything to disqualify and nullify his candidacy. And they can't. If no one wants him, then who the hell is voting for him?
The fact is, lots of people are. In a few instances, in record numbers.
There's a reason they are, and it's not cause everyone but you is loony. It's because the system you are so afraid of him screwing up, is already totally *ucked and some people know that.
He is, if nothing else, a maverick and he hates those people and the system as much as anyone. He could stumble into a pile of $hit and still come out smelling better than this country's political governing game with all it's hopelessly loyal drama queens that participate in such a manner. People feel it, even if they don't recognize it. Our government is not on our side and people can see this.
He is only a choice, against, the whole dam mess..
More power to him. Who else is beating this jacked up, divide and conquer, control mechanism that is our stinkin' ass cattle farm. Who needs it?
The fuckhead archons, I guess.
Peace ... and stuff.
I agree with much of what you said. That said, I have a slightly different take, or maybe just a complimentary take that can be blended in to what you said Gary.
It has been my contention for some time that the Trump type characters we see rise up are the result of cause and effect. Trump the effect and dumbed down non-critical-thinking cognitive-dissonance-infected body politic.
A more intelligent and saavy voting public would never put up with any of this nonsense for a second, and the offender would be embarrassed and would shrink away or grow into something more akin to said saavy voting public.
Trump is simply a revelation, the result of a dumbed down celebrity worshipping "Simple Jack" body politic. When enough people decide they are tired of paying taxes and then turn right around and complain about the potholes in the roads, poof, a Trump appears!
That's oversimplifying it, but you get the point. When people rant conflicting points of view and do not catch themselves and then fail to laugh at their own silly lack of logic and common sense, Trumps sprout like pimples on the face of "stupid is as stupid does Ms. Blue"...
Here is a cool segment of Louis CK's Horace and Pete show, a political debate at the bar:
Louis C.K.'s Horace and Pete - Best Scene - YouTube
Just to make sure Hilary wins, because her family's connected to the same garbagy shadows as the "other" assholes. And they can divert and misdirect attention through the whole "woman" and "democrat" blinds, which mean nothing...
Barfed that out there...
I really don't follow any of it. Mostly second hand or what I decide to read on here. Sorry I interrupted.
All of this can sure be addictive though. Like talking about sports. Or religion. Or the weather. Or...
A more intelligent and savvy voting public. Now there's the crux. IMO there's no such thing. Maybe you could define that.
It always amazes me how the left thinks everyone that sees things differently, is uneducated or not intelligent. That's where the cognitive dissonance lies. They think they know something the other side just doesn't quite understand, but the truth is they havn't a clue how the other side thinks. I've seen it over and over again.
People are not fed up because they don't understand why they want tax free elimination of pot holes. People are fed up because the elected people running the system can't be trusted and are failing miserably. Invariably, we see, the problem is reoccurring and multiplies in intensity every election.
People are pissed because of the insanity. It doesn't work, but we keep doing it.
The whole political system is unintelligent and unsaavy, as it is in no manner, likely to benefit anyone other than the voted for players and their manipulators. That's what's embarrassing to me.
OK Chris, I just watched the clip and after doing so I see I may have misinterpreted some of your comment. I see that we are pretty much saying the same thing. Maybe one thing. You seem to see Trump as an absurd notion. I see every other candidate, on both sides, as the greater absurdity.
I see the entire process as an exercise in futility and yet, the options we have don't make any sense to me either. To decide not to vote, even though my vote may seem insignificant, doesn't feel like the right decision to make. Voting for the lesser of evils, doesn't feel like the right decision to make. Thinking of anything any of us can lawfully do to change the system seems like the biggest pipe dream of all at this point.
Promoting revolution to produce evolution seems a contradiction in terms...and to vote for any of the delegates I've seen come out of either party (and even some of the third parties) over the last dozen years or so...well it just makes my level of disgust at what we're being fed by the 'fed' skyrocket. Like in past elections, a vote for an independent basically meant either of the other candidates (not worthy of the vote or trust the office should involve) would benefit while the vote we cast then is essentially nullified.
Why aren't we calling for dissolution of the electoral college and insisting on a vote 'of the people'- at least then if we get an idiot- 90 percent of the country will be able to relate to them...omg did I even just sayyyyy that? Why aren't we insisting our senators and congressman live with the same wages, benefits and health programs as they're willing to lay on us? Why have we been sheeple for so long that we barely know the rights we still do have? (not expecting answers, just ranting)
WTF...so one two three what are we fighting for, don't ask me they don't give a damn 'bout our fellowman...six seven eight might already be too late, got ourselves in a terrible jam, from here to Vietnam...Donald wants to build a wall, Hillary knows it all...put down your books and let's run, Canada's sounding like much more fun.....
oh my gawdddd I am sick sick sick of what we're witnessing on the nightly news. Any real views are best found in global views...we be lookn mor n mor lik duh idjiots. (no offense intended, I love you guys)
we're passing like ships in the night Chris...agree with you above and just saw Dead Zone a week or two ago...I think Scott Adams (Dilbert creator) recognized and spoke eloquently to the way Donald's playing it. For those of you who haven't watched that, it identifies what he's doing quite well.
I'm neither left nor right - I just know when I am hearing sincerity or bullshit. Trump is a seasoned master salesman that is simply taking advantage of what you are talking about Gary, how pissed off and thoroughly fed up people (on both sides of the political spectrum) are.
Trump IMO is a "from the frying pan to the fire" scenario. He is a sociopath that will serve himself if given the opportunity, and already is at every opportunistic turn. Did you see last night, the red carpet he put out for his VIP's and the Trump wines, Trump bottled water and Trump steaks staged behind the podium where he was to give his victory speech?
My take on cognitive dissonance has much to do with how often people are voting against their own self interests and blaming the "other side" so that they don't have to face the very real fact that they are voting against their own self interests. Not seeing how your actions are not serving you well ensures that you will most likely repeat the mistake.
I actually thought very much like MarkB mentioned in his post above, that Trump was never truly keen on becoming POTUS. That he was much more keen on the opportunity to get so much free publicity in this electoral process, and boy how he has milked it for all its worth. Make no mistake, his primary goal is and has been for some time now to push and promote the Trump brand. So much of the money he makes these days comes from licensing the Trump name.
Another notion that keeps floating around at the fore of my thoughts during all of this is that I actually want Trump to win because we the people of these allegedly united states of duh-murica deserve him after all the support so many have lent to the untimely death of so many innocents and the disruption and destruction of other countries/states, karmic justice if you will. All in the name of fighting terrorism, but who is going to stop our terrorism?
If someone came into your area where you live and started attacking and disrupting your life, wouldn't you fight back? and if they branded you a terrorist for fighting back would you give a shit what they thought?
Does anyone remember the movie "The Dead Zone" with Christopher Walken and Martin Sheen?
Still Surprised by Trump? Then You're Not Reading Scott Adams
Forgive me for writing about “The Donald” in these pages. But Trump’s rise has been the story of 2015, 2016, and may end up being the story of (gulp) the next four to (second gulp) eight years. Now, I understand that the mere mention of Trump makes some of you coil up in disgust, I can appreciate that. What I cannot figure is how many people are still either surprised by Trump’s ascendence or, worse, dismissive of his chances at winning the general election.
All I can figure is that most people are still not reading the Dilbert Blog, which is just plain crazy (other acceptable adjectives are “cray cray” or “crazytown”). Earlier this year, I advised ATL readers to start reading Scott Adams’s blog about the 2016 election because it was going to change your lives. And I am not backing off that advice. In fact, much like Scott Adams, I am doubling down. Not reading Scott Adams in 2016 is the 2008 equivalent of ignoring Nate Silver.
First of all, if this is the first you’re hearing of this, take solace in knowing that you are not alone in your willful ignorance. Respected news outlets continue to publish stories, op-eds, and open letters that contain some variation of, “Last year, no respectable pundit predicted Trump would be the front-runner.” This conveniently leaves out the fact that Scott Adams has been predicting not only Trump’s rise, but a slew of other developments which, because he is charmingly cocky-as-hell, he has gone ahead and listed on his blog.
You would think that someone who was making predictions in real time that no one else was getting right would start to get more credit. And to be fair, there is a certain cult movement that has developed around Adams. All you have to do is check out the fact that each of his posts are driving thousands of comments on his blog. In an age where comments sections are losing ground to social networks, that is highly impressive. But as cult followings go, it is very “inside.” And, while some TV networks have started giving the hypnocartoonist (it’s a word!) some airtime, it has been mostly early morning shows. I have yet to see him in prime time.
I could imagine any number of reasons that people continue to look the other way, especially if you’re not a Trump supporter. But what you are missing by not staying up to date with your Dilblogging is not only the outcome, but the significance of this election. If you listen to the usual talking heads (or your friends on Facebook for that matter), you are hearing that 2016 shows that Americans are racist, people are sick of the establishment, and that campaigns are now won on Facebook and Twitter (which must be bittersweet for Mark Zuckerberg).
For Scott Adams, this is not even about the campaign, it is about the human condition. We like to imagine that we are rational beings who make decisions based on facts and evidence. But this election has demonstrated that reason, logic, and rational thinking are not actually all that important. Humans, not just Trump supporters, make decisions based on instincts and emotions, something Trump understands. So while Trump is typically regarded as the least scientific candidate, according to Adams he is the best at using the “science of persuasion.” That is why he constantly repeats himself, avoids detail at all costs, and chooses issues that speak to your guts, not your brains (e.g., immigration and trade).
I have no idea what is going to happen in the run up to the convention, and I have no dog in the race. I have never voted in an election and that will not change in 2016. But I am not going to miss a single post on the Dilbert Blog, and neither should you. And, now that you have read this post, you have no excuse to continue being surprised.

Hate that term, but had to use it cause I posted with that title and didn't want to be TOO redundant.
It's all [staged] and meant to get us all crazy and wound up as well as infuriate the rest of the world into thinking that's what we would even want. Thereby opening the stage for another "attack" on our country and a reason to suppress us and declare marshall law. The other angle would be to use an emp weapon and shut down our grid, cutting off our best weapon and source of information sharing and communication. As well as the dependency on power and commerce that we are totally tied to...
We would be completely at the mercy of the armed forces, who would be under the pretense that controlling us is in our best interest (because of predictable chaos and all the selfish people and guns) and they would distribute goods, etc accordingly. Just like in all the other countries that have been disempowered and enslaved!
They're going to be getting MORE desperate since they know the $1 can't hold too much longer, and it's all they have.

Mac Miller Eviscerates Donald Trump On The Nightly Show [New Video]
loved it....Mac Miller for prezzzzzident!
I read the summary below,,it sounds like fun! Man, we all have great ideas about why the hell DRumph is still in it. I kind of liked the one about someonewho's got something on him forcing him to run to eventually get hIllary in there. But his comments on 911 don't fit that scenario, as those are the same people who would be forcing him to run. The 911 comments knocked jeb out of it. I was surprised he never used Jeb's drug kingpin ties, but I guess he didn't need to. But I will never believe that Drumph has good intentions, I don't believe he has it in em. I agree Gary that He is in a sense representing all the people who are pissed off about what the system has become, but I wouldn't eliminate the media's flogging of him as being part of the plan. After what they pulled off setting Obama up to pacify the folks ready to throw up after 8 years of the Bush"s, anything is possible...
If the donald wants to impress me, let him spend his self proclaimed fortune convincing every american not to vote,,,nobody shows up to vote,,,not a soul, the ultimate act of peaceful non compliance...That would be cool,,,I might actually grow to like him... Its all like a bad tv series, bad acting, too many commercials, but you keep wondering how it's gonna turn out
Looks like they had to take it down. I didn't see it. I went to several places and it's gone on all of them. That's very interesting.
I just have to say this. You guys are really confusing me with this whole post. I seem to be missing something.
Maybe this one slipped through the ever tightening controls put on "FREE SPEECH" in America
Mac Miller tells it as it is ........................ "YOU BITCH!!!!"
LMAO thanks Chris
I don't mean that in a disparaging derogatory manner either. I mean it literally. Last night he boldly claimed on national TV that you can still buy his steaks and his magazine and a few other discontinued products. He was selling the idea of availability of discontinued defunct Trump products. He even dares the listener to research it and find out for themselves as if he was sure they would find him to be telling them the truth! He is not (telling the truth).
The only question that remains is does he even know he is not telling people the truth!
Somewhere along the line The Donald took a trip to salesperson cray cray town and is now a bit like one of those characters in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest that just keeps muttering repetitive jibberish, only this guy has a large and fascinated audience which tends to seemingly lend sanity and credibility to the odd phenomenon of such a boisterous and brash loony bird. The simple truth is, a sane person would not be saying the things The Donald is saying.
The Donald defines how thin the line really is between genius and insanity.
For me now it's just a matter of time before the public finally sees what a loon he really is. I still think The Donald is a fun entertaining phenomenon, and he is a perfect addition to the cray cray town that is DC and the two party BS political system ruse. Remember Neo, "there is no spoon"........
try one of these two

HA! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HAHAHAHAHAHA!
It's that whole wetiko thing. Without being full blown, they have to, in some inner recess or crevice of their being know that they're bonkers and that the whole thing is just nuts. But they do have to convince themselves of the lie. And get supportive feedback that others in some remote sense buy it as well. It's been so long, almost nobody remembers anything but the current game.
Soul sucking leeches. Of life force.
So boring and stupid. Idiots.
But it's just so ugly and pathetic I can barely stand to look at them anymore or treat them as fellow humans.
Because they aren't.

The hopeful & curious me wants to see what Bernie might accomplish (let Lucy hold that football for Charlie Brown one more time before I shoot them both), and the anarchist & curious me wants Drumpf to win to see what would happen with that proud as hell pathological liar. You have to give it to him - he is very entertaining to the less than better angels of our inhuman nature.
And yea MonkeyMan, the wetico thing for sure. The indigeonous cultures must be laughing and crying simultaneously right now. Or maybe many of them are excited about the prospect of it all being close to fruition and a turning of the page to come shortly...

The Republican establishment has been proudly and very persistently living in a fact-free zone for some time now. Along comes someone like The Donald that has made a sales-oriented artform of fact-free BS for most of his life, a practiced genius at it.
Talk about chickens coming home to roost! And of course, staying true to their chosen nature, the republican establishment has just recently blamed Obama (again ad nauseam) for what is happening to their party and The Donald phenomenon.
Oh, and just so no one mistakes me for subtly defending the Democratic establishment somehow by default, if the dems were the "good" party it wouldn't be so damn hard to elect Bernie Sanders or a Dennis Kucinich.
To borrow a line from The Cable Guy,

I mean in the Cosmic scheme of things talk about a grand illusion..I wonder how we get to the truth and transparency we are all worthy of. At this point it's just all to comical. (sad that, but it is what it is!)
Yes, comical but certainly good theater. When we are talking about politacal assassinations also serious business. I'm very curious to see what happens with the establishment wanting to get rid of Trump. This is reminisent of what happened with the Ron Paul campaign. (except in my opinion a viable candidate that would have made a real difference) Here'a a list of stories from Kevin Barret's False flag news:
5) At Secretive Meeting, Tech CEOs And Top Republicans Commiserate, Plot To Stop
16) They’re stopping Trump with shameless, undisguised vote
17) Cruz “won” by more than 17 percentage points, when available polls projected an 11-point Trump
18) Bergdahl lawyers seek meeting with Trump over
19) Bernie Sanders Wins Big With Michigan Muslims — And Political Pundits Can’t Quite Believe
Let my friend drag me to a Trump rally and it was just so predictable and all...pledge of allegiance-hand on heart, facing flag, then sing god bless America, then a prayer by a white preacher who also makes harsh political comments, then a black preacher who's shouting how great Donald is so loud that i have to put fingers in my ears.
about 6 diff black people got up and spoke-esp hilarious because the 5 other blacks in the audience all turned out to be protesters. (Make America white again)
My gregarious friend starts a conversation with a brawny guy who turns out to be one of the founding members of Blackwater (ewe yuk). My ears are ringing from guys whistling at everything said. Numerous comments are traded next to me about various conspiracy theory type stuff which frankly is refreshing to my ears. But oops, then it's all due to the 'communists'(liberals). Oblama is a marxist AND a practicing Muslim who wants to kill us....(a marxist muslim?)
Donald comes out-starts his shtick, people laughing heartily at his outrageous promises(because they hate shit too!) and Donald is plainly one of them-he's REALLY good at this. I'm drawn to his confident way of speaking!
Then the protesters begin. One, then a 2nd. A minute or two later another. Then a little group. then a couple more singles or pairs. Each time sober faced state troopers grab them violently and force them out. Some people hit them.
Then again and again they are interrupting the thing. I'm smiling inside. They pretty much ruined the event for those who wanted more Donald and Dopamine. It just kept happening. Very effective.
Take away? Donalds People are (LET ME HIT THE CAPS BUTTON): REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY PISSED OFF WITH POLITICS AS USUAL. A vote for Donny boy is a vote for "F__K YOU!" to the corrupt political establishment. People are exhausted.
I can't help but notice how absolutely giddy some are while conveying a preconceived and pretty vicious opinion-attack.
I had a photo here and it didn't relate, exactly, to this post, so I took it off.
"Michelle Fields, who has a book coming out in June, claims on social media that Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski assaulted her at a Trump press conference. The clip below shows no such thing occurred."
