A Look At Tom Reed's Smear of Tracy Mitrano's Supporters: The Black Hole Calls the Brown Dwarf Black

Submitted by Robin Messing on Sun, 08/19/2018 - 6:40pm

Tom Reed devoted a page of his website to claims that his campaign staff was

threatened, harassed and insulted following this weekend’s Tracy Mitrano Rally in Olean which was hosted by a coalition of liberal activist groups including Citizens for a Better Southern Tier, the group whose leader was recently arrested for stealing Tom Reed campaign signs. 

Reed tried to tie the harassment to Congresswoman Maxine Waters who he claimed encouraged harassment of "public servants" by telling a crowd of her supporters

Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from [President Trump’s] Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.

Reed neglected to mention that Waters clarified her comments the next day when she told Chris Hayes,

I did not call for harm for anybody . . .As a matter of fact I believe in peaceful protest. . . . I believe that protest is at the centerpiece of our democracy. I believe that the constitution guarantees us freedom of speech. And I think that protest is civil.

Why Congressman Tom Reed Should Protect the Mueller Investigation--Evidence of Collusion and Blackmail

Submitted by Robin Messing on Tue, 07/24/2018 - 6:25pm

Donald Trump's weak performance at Helsinki was so outrageous that even many of his Republican supporters have expressed outrage or at least embarrassment. Former Tea Party Congressman Joe Walsh was perhaps the most outraged. When you read the following series of tweets you should keep in mind that he is no Extreme Ithaca Liberal. In fact, during the 2016 campaign Walsh tweeted, "if Trump loses, I'm grabbing my musket". Walsh is singing a very different tune now.

 

 

 

 

Republican Family Values

Submitted by Robin Messing on Mon, 07/09/2018 - 5:25pm

What is it with Repubilcans and child endangerment and sexual molestation? Republicans used to claim to be the party of family values.  Well, maybe they could claim that label today if they want to say they are the party of Manson Family values. To be fair, the Republicans haven't gone on a murder spree, though their leader, Donald Trump, has declared Vladimir Putin to be a "fine" person and Vladimir Putin's critics have a nasty habit of turning up dead. But only a family that was nearly as depraved as the Manson Family could delight in some of the people the Republicans have been supporting and some of the actions they have been taking lately.

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker wants the Senate to delay approval of President Trump's Supreme Court pick so long as Trump is (allegedly) under investigation by Robert Mueller for criminal activity.

 

Putting Max Della Pia's (or his intern's) Plagiarism in Perspective

Submitted by Robin Messing on Sun, 07/01/2018 - 9:14am

It appears that Max Della Pia--or his intern--plagiarized sizeable sections of John Ossoff's website when writing his own website. For those outside the NY-23rd Congressional District--Max barely eked out a victory among five competitors in the Democratic primary vying for a chance to send our Congressman, Tom Reed, to the unemployment line.

Is Congressman Tom (Reckless) Reed Willing To Risk A War With North Korea That Could Cripple The United States?

Congressman Tom Reed posted his thoughts on the North Korea Summit recently on Facebook. The last line of his post justifiably raised some eyebrows.

The Despicable Roseanne Barr and Why She Blocked Me on Twitter

Submitted by Robin Messing on Tue, 05/29/2018 - 8:38pm

Roseanne Barr is a despicable human being. She is an unapologetic Trumpanzee who seems to believe that Israel can do no wrong, no matter how brutally it treats Palestinians. She has posted virulently Islamphobic and anti-Palestinian tweets in the past, though one of her recent television shows hinted that that she may have somewhat modified her extremist views. However, those expecting Barr to be a decent human being based on that show were shocked when she showed her true racism by tweeting that Valerie Jarrett, a senior advisor to President Obama who is Black, was the love child between the Muslim Brotherhood and an ape from the Planet of the Apes. 

One despicable smear in one day was not enough for Roseanne. She then libeled George Soros by tweeting that he was a Nazi who helped murder Jews during World War II.  This heinous lie would cause revulsion in any decent person, so naturally Donald Trump Jr. retweeted it.

Bibi Netanyahu's New Iran Scare (Feelings of Deja Vu All Over Again)

Submitted by Robin Messing on Sun, 05/06/2018 - 9:55am

Israel's Prime Minister put on quite a show on Monday to prove that Iran lied about its nuclear weapons program and that the entire Iranian Nuclear Deal was built on a pack of lies. His speech focused on half a ton of secret Iranian nuclear archives that Israel had obtained.  There can be no question that the purpose of Netanyahu's speech was to persuade Donald Trump to kill the Iranian nuclear weapons deal.  Rather than describe the speech in detail, I'll let you watch it for yourself.

North Korea, The Iran Nuclear Deal, and John Bolton's Size 50 Clown Shoes

Submitted by Robin Messing on Sun, 05/06/2018 - 9:37am

John Bolton, President Trump's National Security Advisor, is a threat to our national security. Those aren't just my words.  Those words, only slightly edited, are the title of the  best article you can read about the threat Bolton poses to the world.  Colin Kahl and Jon Wolfsthal write:
