WATCH: Trump Vows To Only Appoint Justices Who Will Overturn Marriage Equality

Donald Trump, hoping to curry some last-minute favor with evangelical voters in Iowa, announced today on “This Week” that if elected, he would be sure and only appoint Supreme Court justices would be willing to overturn marriage equality, which was just ruled Constitutional last year by the current nine justices.

Since the Supreme Court could very likely see three new justices in the next few years, “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos made sure and asked Trump about the kind of justices he would seek to fill any vacancies:

“Let’s talk about some of the issues. Judges. What kind of judges will you appoint? Will they be conservative?What does that mean to you and how will you ensure it?”

To which the Trumpster Fire responded:

“Well, first of all, we have a lot of judges that have to be appointed because we have a lot of openings in terms of judges. And I’m very happy about that, to be honest, because I think, you know, appointing judges is a very important and a very, frankly, a very, very important element of what we’re doing.”

Yes, but you didn’t answer the question, Hamster Head. Stephanopoulos tried again and got this reply:

“I’m going to appoint conservative judges. I’m going to appoint people that have great reputations, that are great with the legal profession…”

Trump Translation Version: Only really huuuuuge judges. Only ones with really huuuuge reps who are loved by the legal eagles.

Like who, exactly, Trump was asked. And here’s where he tipped his hand:

“Well, I can say like any — you know a judge who is a totally underrated and not spoken is Justice Thomas. I mean, if you look at — if you look at some of the judges that we have like on the Supreme Court, Justice Roberts turned out to be a nightmare for conservatives. I mean…”

Wait a damn minute! Trump admires Clarence Thomas? That’s game, set, and match in my book for why this nutjob should never ever ever be President of the United States.

In an appearance on Fox News today, Trump once again reiterated his line of appointing judges who were conservative. So Chris Wallace asked if he would want to make sure he got Supreme Court justices who were willing to overturn the marriage equality ruling. Trump took the bait and said:

“I would strongly consider that, yes.”

Once again: Game, set, match. Donald Trump just gave us all the best argument for why he is totally unfit to be elected to any office.

Here he is on “This Week,” extoling the virtues of Clarence Thomas:

Trump: Talk Of Wall On Mexican Border Is Just A Trick To Rile Up A Sleepy Crowd

Donald Trump just told the world that all of his crazy talk is nothing more than an act designed to get a rise out of a non-responsive crowd. In other words, Trump just admitted that his signature issue –a wall between the United States and Mexico–is just a gigantic lie, much like every promise he makes.

Speaking to the editorial board of the New York Times, Trump remarked:

“You know, if it gets a little boring, if I see people starting to sort of, maybe thinking about leaving, I can sort of tell the audience, I just say, ‘We will build the wall!’ and they go nuts.”

Yet here’s Trump vowing, declaring, promising to build a wall on the Southern border:

While it would be tempting to believe that such an admission from Trump about this centerpiece of his campaign would cause supporters to abandon him in droves, it seems unlikely to do so. That, of course, is not just a function of Trump being such a good showman (and con man), but also because those who fervently support him are so massively brainless and begging for someone to tell them what they should think.

It’s quite obvious that Trump subscribes to the Big Lie theory which was also the foundation of political philosophy espoused by Nazi Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels, who wrote:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Which is why Donald James Trump is one of the most dangerous men to appear in the last century. He will lie about anything to achieve ultimate power. Herr Goebbels would be so proud of him.

The Huffington Post Will Now Add This Disclaimer To Every Article About Donald Trump

If you pay close attention from now on when you read an article about Donald Trump posted by The Huffington Post, you will no doubt spot a disclaimer they have decided to put at the bottom of each Trump piece:

“Note to our readers: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.”

Speaking only for myself, I love that! It reinforces what so many of us in the online media have been saying about Trump for months now. It’s succinct and to the point.

But what made Huff Post decide to add this note to their articles on the Donald? A spokesperson for Huffington Post remarked:

“Yes, we’re planning to add this note to all future stories about Trump. No other candidate has called for banning 1.6 billion people from the country! If any other candidate makes such a proposal, we’ll append a note under pieces about them.”

Sounds very fair. They aren’t just targeting Trump (though you can count on him claiming in whiny fashion that they are) or picking him out because he’s the GOP frontrunner.

Let’s consider that fact for a moment: Trump is the Republican frontrunner. Does this not tell us everything we’ve wondered about the GOP for some time now? They have been drifting further and further to the extreme right, and now they have their perfect Manchurian candidate: A man who is not afraid to say, out loud, the things so many Republicans think and feel but are too timid to say for fear of alienating voters.

Yet now the GOP seeks to push Trump aside because they are being painted with the same brush whenever he opens his big mouth. They say they’re offended. But I gotta call bullshit on that one.

All the GOP cares about is winning elections, no matter the tactics used. But now they are coming to the realization that Trump could cost them the White House yet again. So they have to try and pretend they want nothing to do with him. It’s as big a lie as the ones Trump is so fond of telling.

Here’s Donald explaining why he feels the ban on Muslims is so important to our national security:

Whoopi Goldberg Takes Down The Donald In EPIC Fashion (Video)

There are many words one can use to describe just how odious and repellent Donald Trump is. Here’s a few that come to mind when I think of him: Bigoted. Misogynist. Hateful. Islamophobic. Petty. Arrogant. Racist. Asshat. Dillhole.

But Whoopi Goldberg had by far the best word for Trump, and she shared it with everyone on “The View,” as you can see here:

Coward. Now that’s perfect for Trump. Has nothing to do with being afraid of appearing at a debate simply because Megyn Kelly is one of the moderators. Also has nothing to do with him insisting on having armed security guards everywhere he goes, even before he decided to run for President. Trump says he carries a gun, so why can’t he defend himself? You wanna know why? Because he’s a yellow coward who would piss his pants if anyone approached him and challenged him to a real fight.

But wait. Whoopi said it much better than I ever could:

“You’re a coward, Donald. You’re a coward. If you’re gonna be President of the United States, you have to go and talk to the people you may not like.”

Which points to another fact about Donald Trump: He’s a spoiled, whiny little immature piece of steaming excrement. When he gets upset, he calls his lawyer and posts a nasty tweet about the person who offended him. We want someone this unstable negotiating over matters–literally–of life and death? This thin-skinned jerk would push the nuclear button in a second if another leader dared to slight him in the least.

Again, I’ll let Whoopi say it perfectly:

“She didn’t just attack Trump with just stuff she made up. This is stuff she said back to him. This is stuff he said and he couldn’t take it. She got under his skin and he cut and ran. Only a coward cuts and runs.”

Yes. That is exactly on point. This man is not steady enough to lead a one-man parade, let alone the most powerful nation in the world.

Thank you, Whoopi. You just did your country a great service.

WATCH: FBI Video Proves Oregon Militant Reached For Gun TWICE Before Being Shot

Ever since the confrontation between federal authorities and militia members earlier this week at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, conspiracy theories have been circulating among fellow militants and the right-wing extremists who support them. Most go like this: LaVoy Finicum, who was shot and killed by agents, was on his knees with his hands in the air, attempting to surrender.

But this video, just released by the FBI, proves that contention to be a complete lie. Watch for yourself:

Take a look at the video around the 9 minute mark and it quickly becomes obvious that as an officer approaches Finicun, Finicum can be seen reaching with his hand toward his body, as if for a weapon. After a second officer appears and moves in, Finicum once again reaches to his body and is shot. This is standard procedure for officers who think a suspect is about to engage them with a weapon. Conservatives love to say that anyone ordered to do something by police should comply, yet where are they now? Why aren’t they condemning LaVoy Finicum?

Inside Finicum’s truck, FBI agents found two loaded .223 caliber semi-automatic rifles and a loaded .38 special revolver. FBI Special Agent Greg Breitzing commented:

“As soon as the agents and troopers were confident that they had addressed any further threats, they provided medical assistance to Finicum. That happened about 10 minutes after the shooting.”

Yet we have asshats such as Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore insisting that militia leader Ammon Bundy called his wife and reported that he had watched Finicum being shot to death while on his knees or lying down. As the video shows, this is pure unadulterated crap. Has Fiore apologized for spreading this falsehood? No she hasn’t

It should also be noted that Finicum told reporters on several occasions that he was willing to give his life in order to defend his perverted view of the Constitution. Apparently he didn’t bother reading the part where it says that if you break the law, you must pay the price.

The siege in Oregon continues, and the Internet is still rife with rumors and conspiracy theories of what happened when Finicum was shot. But the facts do not lie. Only losers who consider themselves above the law think otherwise.
