Democrats consider surrendering to Trump on Supreme Court. They must want to destroy their party

On Monday, already failed presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar said:

 ... she was not concerned that the party’s base would turn on its elected officials.

… which is why we get headlines like this:

Democrats consider backing off big battle over Trump's Supreme Court pick

So what possible fucking reason might make Democrats decide to sit out this critical fight? Well, in short, there’s a batch of them who are fucking idiots. I mean, they’re the dumbest fuckers you can possibly imagine. How goddam stupid are they? Their logic is as follows: if Democrats use the filibuster, Republicans might eliminate it. And if they eliminate it, they won’t be able to use the filibuster! 

The obvious response, of course, is why have a filibuster at all if you’re too fucking afraid to use it?

Or put another way, why be a senator if you’re too afraid to do your job?

The only choice is all out obstruction. Anything less will have those Democrats drawn and quartered by the base. Filibuster until there is no filibuster. It’s what Republicans planned on doing to President Clinton’s choice. If Republicans eliminate the filibuster, then good for them! It’s a piece of shit anyway. Respond instead by slowing Senate business to a crawl. It’s easy! Just refuse to allow unanimous consent on anything.

Anything less than all-out war on the would-be tyrant is unacceptable.

AFRICAN AMERICA IS AT WAR

THERE IS A RACE WAR ON AFRICAN AMERICA

THERE IS A RACE WAR ON AFRICAN AMERICANS

THERE IS A RACE WAR ON BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA

AMERICA'S RACISTS HAVE INFILTRATED AMERICAN POLICE FORCES TO WAGE A RACE WAR AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA

THE BLACK RACE IS AT WAR

FIRST WORLD WAR:  THE APPROXIMATELY 6,000 YEAR WORLD WAR ON AFRICA AND THE BLACK RACE

Original Post

Democrats are paid to lose or paid to be weak in the best interests of the oligarchy and Republicans are paid to be strong or oppose anything that is not in the best interest of the oligarchy or big business.

It's no coincidence that Republicans dominate state houses and Congress because the billionaire class fund both parties and then expect them to promote their agenda's. Democrats will always bend and break and Republicans are rigid and then bend at the last moment if they are pushed. 

I will be surprised if Jeff Sessions do not become the AG yet Democrats have every reason to oppose him to the end but as the result of Democrats being bought and bossed they don't have the votes to stop Sessions anyway. 

Republicans and Democrats are HIRED to break government which is why the people have lost faith in government and opened the door for a dick like Trump.

That's what it seems like, either that or just the fact that Democrats usually hold non-/barely contested seats and merely hold onto their seats for the money, or to be able to pad their resumes, and so they can attend all of the non-productive parties, 'functions', etc., i.e., all the things that have nothing to do with representing and fighting for their constituents.  

The American people are being played big time by all our sold-out, corporate puppet politicians.

By the time that Americans wake-the-"f"-up and realize that a coup d 'etat is being carried out on the United States of America, and that a Police State is being erected to beat, murder and keep the American people at bay as the economy crashes, it will already be too late.

Like you said the USA is an oligarchy.

A coup d 'etat have already taken placed. Trump symbolizes a lack of faith in government. The country have decided to transfer power from the government to the private sector or the oligarchy.

So this is the progression we have been on. When government worked! The country was dominated by Liberals for a long time, 52 years until W was elected and during that time we got SSI, Medicaid, Medicare, Welfare, public schools, food stamps, civil rights, voting rights, integration, labor laws, affirmative action, bank regulations, environmental protections, cheap college tuition and so on. 

But when Reagan was elected and passed laws to allow big money into politics the rich began to hire politicians and fund both parties and we have been on a oligarchy path ever since.

The natural progression from oligarchy is autocracy or corporate totalitarianism. 

Have yall had a chance to check out the TV series INCORPORATED on the SyFy channel, depicts the world in the year 2074? Check it out... But that is where we are headed if the masses do not stand up to the oligarchy establishment and make government our bitch and use it to put the rich in their place like they once was for many decades before Reagan.  

The coup already happened. The country’s being gutted by a fascist regime 100x worse than mediocre Clinton. The gutless Democrats don’t want to rock the boat. The cowards say they don’t want to further polarize things - like this isn’t the time to fight tooth and nail.   

Trump DEMOTED the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staffs and the Director of National Security. And PROMOTED his top political adviser Steve Bannon.

This is bad news because the top military and the top security officers are not part of the presidents cabinet meetings and now getting second hand information and be told anything and have no idea why.

Bannon believes in a living Russian political philosopher Alexander Dugin... Apparently Trump does too! Check it out.. I really like this brotha Malcolm Nance  despite he is retired CIA operator.

Can't say but if we follow the money, would US/Russia go for global genocide or conquer all Arab nations with oil and take possession of the wells? That’s doubtful although Bannon-Trump wants to steal the oil. This would increase Islamist attacks in Russia and the US. There’s also Indonesia and tens of millions of other Muslims. Some say Bannon-Trump wants to ally with Russia to gang up on China. That’s unlikely because Russia has developed ties with China.  There’s doubtless some selfish power move afoot with global oligarchs waving like schoolgirls to one another. Whatever it is, peasants can be assured of receiving some tiny stale crumbs.

  That's what they're calling it now....a coup.  But it was a coup the minute he won.  I agree that there's an attempt to gut the country....piece by piece but NOT without opposition.  I feel like I'm in the sixties.  I have never seen so many people in my life from all walks of life just having a regular conversation about what is happening.  The brothas and sistas, white, Hispanic, Asian, everybody are out ...especially in Cali having that connection.  And the Women's March was proof.  Over 780 thousands folks were in downtown LA.  Blew me away.  The good people have been not hiding but taking care of their business and got wrapped up in life...but!  Now?  They're here.  I've seen it with my own eyes.  They are not tryin to be right righters but to do right and save this nation.  Cuz everyone has a mother right?  As why those in politics are FORCED to come out even some businesses i.e. Nike and Papa John's....and now Facebook, Mircosoft, etc.  One by one.   Calling out this president.

This is not a political movement this is a human movement.  And fear is their weapon.  But!  As they saw....it was MORE women at the march in Washington  than the inauguration....that should TELL them something [there were even  more folks at the march in LA than folks at the inauguration as well].  And..they are pissed about it.  Women from around the world are uniting cuz it is WOMEN who have a lot to lose.  This immigration block hurts women  more than it does men.  We are the ones with the children.  And so for a man...a coward to attack innocent helpless women who have been waiting to come to America for over 18 months...running from war in their country...and to be blocked...to block babies and children and vet them like they are adults?  Is a monstrous heartless move.  More and more this revolution will grow.  The more he does inhumane things?  The more people are going to come out until it's nothin left but the kitchen sink.  Cuz why?  Every. living. human.  has. A. Mother!  Powerful. 

Additionally, I like to say one mo thang.  Now whitefolks  KNOW what it feels LIKE to fear SOMEONE who LOOKS like THEM [on a large scale].  In the black community, blackfolks were afraid of the black gangs who were killing innocent people including black children.  Not one white could sympathize or relate to  being afraid of your OWN race.  Until. Now.   They see Trump is one of them.  And ....and yet?  He don't give a damn what he is doing to his own race.  This frightens white America.  Trumps own family are also immigrants i.e. his grandfather from Germany.  But that doesn't phase him one bit.  He has proven he doesn't CARE!!!  It's about POWER...nothing else.  And so you will see those DEMS coming back alive and fighting with everything they have....cuz this?  Affects reps and dems alike.  They are going to band together.  They. Have. No. Choice.  Cuz if the president of the united states is not going to abide to the orders of a Supreme Court?  He is not going to LISTEN to anyone....except.  We the People!  And the star of that show?  Women!  The real war[as I have been saying for years]?  Is Patriarchal vs Matriarchal. And it's here tearing away specifically at....women's rights.  So.  It's on.  But!

Though of that too, white folks are getting a taste!

This is the time to connect with allies. Many think that’s wrong.  That’s old thinking, yes it is. It’s 100% right for NOW.

"Though of that too, white folks are getting a taste!

*******************************************************

Now would be a good time to connect with allies, but who exactly are African Americans' allies?

When it comes to all the groups in this country, I really think that African Americans would find more 'allies' in progressive non-racist White Americans than all the foreigners allowed in this country.

But, we/African Americans, must FIRST find 'allies' within one another.

Black people need to take this Racist Republican, Right Wing Extremist, Racist Hate Groups regime that Trump is banding together, much, much more seriously, and start putting together meetings and plans of action for Black people in America when everything really starts hitting the fan.

Black people in America are going to have to make a decision, once and for all, and that's do we stand and fight back or do we allow racist psychopaths to have their way with us with complete impunity, because it's all only going to get worse under Trump.

These Arabs Voted For White Supremacy, Now Their Relatives Are Banned From Entering The US

 

AFRICANGLOBE – A Syrian family living in Allentown, Pennsylvania just watched their relatives get deported right in front of them by the administration they voted for.

Dr. Ghassan Assali and his wife, Sarmad, are originally from Syria but have been in the United States since the Clinton administration. Dr. Assali earned his degree from New York University and has a dentistry practice in Pennsylvania. Sarmad’s two brothers, their wives, and their two children have been trying to flee Syria since 2003, and were finally approved for residency in the United States in December of 2016.

However, when the six Assali relatives arrived in the United States only hours after Donald Trump signed his executive order indefinitely banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries (including Syria), they were promptly detained by U.S. Customs.

“Two security guards were waiting for them,” Sarmad Assali told reporters. “They took them. They said, ‘Are you Syrians?’ They said, ‘Yes.’ They said, ‘Come with us.’”

 Assali said her vote for Donald Trump was done out of a desire to see secure borders, though she didn’t expect one of her candidate’s chief campaign promises to be applied to her relatives, who are all Orthodox Christians with green cards. Even though White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus recently stated that Trump’s order wouldn’t apply to green card holders, Assali’s relatives were nonetheless forced to board the next flight to Syria despite waiting over a decade to be with their family in the United States.

“I understand he wants to make America safe,” Assali said. “We’re all on with this. I definitely want to be in a safe place. But people need us and we need to be there for them.”

Ghassan Assali compared the U.S. government under the president he voted for to the Islamic State, expressing disappointment that the country he calls home now issues religious purity tests to immigrants,

“America is not America,” Dr. Assali said. “Like ISIS now, they ask, ‘Are you Christian? What do you believe?’ And if they are not saying what they believe, they kick you out and they cut your head off. So America, same thing. They ask you are you Muslim? You’ve got to change your religion. Thank you.”

 

One of those deported was the mother of 21-year-old Tarwak Assali, who came to the United States three years ago.

“I was one hour away from hugging her,” he said. “Seeing her.”

The timing of the Assali relatives being deported back to Syria couldn’t have been worse. Only six hours after they boarded a flight to Damascus, Syria through Doha, Qatar, federal judge Ann Donnelly issued an injunction on the order, allowing those detained by customs to be released onto U.S. soil.

  Great point my sista!!  Those so called "white" Hispanics who voted for him are feelin the same with this ban AND the upcoming wall.  They did it to themselves.  Just like the 53 percent white women who now will be worried if they will have rights over the fertility-again their fault.  As why[I know I sound like a broken record] critical thinking is vital.  See?  People think as long as it doesn't affect me?  Then I'm cool.  Well it may not affect you directly but it will in some way or form to ultimately affect you in the long run.  And those .5 far right christians, mountaineers, Gatorade hill residents, etc will feel the pain with no health care or rights to control your body coming their way.  Cuz these moves are for EVERY body.  No matter your party i.e. the repubs and their families are goin to suffer not just the dems and others.  This kind of thing has already been written in history and here we go again.  Folks who voted for Trump will get what he promised....ban of immigrants....including families of immigrants of those who voted for Trump as we see.  And more!  Abortions will soon be performed in back alleys by shady practioners and upcoming "brothel"  procurers. The quality of life for young women [many who voted for Trump] will be at risk.   So no one in his camp should be whining at this point.  It shouldn't be a sound heard.   But!
