Donald Trump Elections WTF?!

Texas Governor Closes Ballot Drop-Off Locations In Effort To Rig The State For Trump

If perhaps you were wondering just how bad things are going for Donald Trump as he seeks to win a second term in office, consider that he’s only leading in the deep red state of Texas by 3 points — 48 to 45 percent — over Joe Biden with just a little more than a month to go before the votes are counted.

Should Trump lose the Lone Star State, it would be a horrible humiliation for both the president and the the GOP governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, who is an ardent Trump supporter.

Hoping to stay on Trump’s good side, Abbott issued a proclamation on Thursday which prohibits multiple ballot drop-off locations in the state’s counties. Each county is now allowed to only have one, according to The Hill:

“Starting Friday, mail ballots submitted in person by eligible vote-by-mail voters must be returned to a publicly designated county voting clerk’s office, a local NBC affiliate KXAN reported.

“The proclamation allows early voters only one ballot drop-off location per county, and other drop-off satellite locations will be closed.”

Harris County, it should be noted, includes Houston, which has the largest African-American population in the state and also happens to be the single-largest county in Texas. 

Abbott says the move is to guarantee election security, but that’s just complete bullshit. It’s a precautionary move meant to help guarantee that Trump wins Texas, as Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa noted:

“Governor Abbott and Texas Republicans are scared.

“Republicans are on the verge of losing, so Governor Abbott is trying to adjust the rules last minute. Courts all over the country … have held that it is too late to change election rules.”

 

Donald Trump and the GOP don’t want Americans to vote in large numbers. When turnout is high, Republicans lose. So they cheat, they lie, and they try to disenfranchise as many people as they can.

But this time we won’t let them. We’re going to vote in numbers never seen before and boot all these crooks out of office, including the wannabe fascist in the White House.

GOP Insider Warns: Trump Is Blackmailing Lindsey Graham With Information About His ‘Sexual Kink’

Though it’s hard to believe now, there was actually a time when Lindsey Graham was one of Donald Trump’s harshest critics. Graham even predicted back in 2016 that if Trump was the GOP nominee, some very bad things were in the cards for Republicans:

Graham also encouraged the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ) to give the infamous Steele dossier to the FBI, Axios notes:

“Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham told CNN … that when Sen. John McCain was presented with the controversial Steele dossier alleging a Trump-Russia campaign conspiracy in December 2016, Graham urged him to hand it off to the FBI.”


And yet, this is the very same Lindsey Graham who helped shepherd the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh through the Senate Judiciary Committee, blowing a gasket when committee Democrats dared to raise issues of sexual assault against Kavanaugh, who was eventually confirmed in one of the closest votes in history.

Now Graham is once again in the headlines, defending Donald Trump despite his incriminating call with the Ukrainian president in which he suggested he wouldn’t release military aid until Ukraine dug up dirt on the family of former Vice President Joe Biden.

So what exactly is with Senator Graham? Why is he so eager to protect Trump, no matter what?


Perhaps it’s time we take another look at some information that came from Jon Cooper of the Democratic Coalition earlier this year. Cooper posted this on Twitter:

No one knows exactly what that “kink” could be, and the very thought of what bizarre things Graham could be involved in boggles the mind and induces nausea.

If anyone would have this information, it’s likely to be Trump, or some of the shady organized crime figures he’s done business with over the years.

Whatever the reason, let’s hope Graham’s secret becomes public knowledge soon, because in a state as conservative as South Carolina, a sex scandal could sink the his chances of re-election to the Senate in November.

Immigration WTF?!

Ann Coulter Says The U.S. Should Deny Citizenship To Anyone That’s Blind Or In A Wheelchair

Every single time I hear something that Ann Coulter has said, I like her even less than I did before. But I do believe she has hit an all-time low with remarks she made during a right-wing talk show.


Coulter decided to call in during Simon Conway’s radio show and, as you might expect considering how much Coulter hates immigrants and those who seek to gain entrance into the United States, the conversation gravitated to the issue, specifically the English language requirement for most immigrants who wish to become citizens. This prompted Ms. Coulter to declare:

“The INS has waived the English-language requirements for many immigrants, and it’s not just — that obviously goes to the heart of it, are you switching allegiance, do you love this country? — but beyond that, how about the wheelchair-only section? How about the section for the blind? Look, wish these people well, but we’re not running an international charity here.”


I read that quote the first time and it nearly made me sick at my stomach. If someone is blind or in a wheelchair, they just don’t get a chance to become an American, Ann? Is that what you’re saying? If so, then perhaps we can find a place to deport you and declare that no one with long blond hair is allowed in, either.


Ann Coulter is a heartless, soulless woman who cares only about how many of her dreadful books she can sell and how many times she can appear on Fox News to spew her racist, xenophobic drivel. And she is also one of the reasons that the Republican Party in this country is quickly becoming a party that represents no one but the rich, the angry, and the fundamentalist Christian.

She, and they, have no future.

Justice Department Accidentally Admits Rudy Giuliani Is Under Criminal Investigation

The recent release of a report from the Inspector General of the Department of Justice (DOJ), Michael Horowitz, was supposed to prove the FBI and DOJ under President Obama had been out of control and operating with nefarious motives in everything they did. As it turned out, former FBI Director James Comey was criticized in Horowitz’s 500-page report, but the report also noted that no one at the Justice Department had acted due to any political motivation:

“We found no evidence that the conclusions by department prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations. Rather, we concluded that they were based on the prosecutor’s assessment of facts, the law and past department practice.”


That conclusion was no doubt a big disappointment for President Trump and the braying right-wing echo chamber over at Fox News. But it was something Horowitz said later when asked a question regarding the IG’s ongoing investigation that should be of special concern to Rudy Giuliani and the White House.

Asked by CNN’s Manu Raju if his office was looking into possible contacts Giuliani had with FBI agents during the 2016 campaign who allegedly told him about the reopening of the Clinton email probe — which, along with Russia, may well have helped seal the election for Trump — Horowitz replied curtly: The investigation “remains ongoing.”


Remember Giuliani’s now famous appearance on Fox News when he suggested something big was about to break in the Clinton investigation? On October 26 2016, he accurately predicted:

“I do think that all of these revelations about Hillary Clinton finally are beginning to have an impact. He’s (Comey) got a surprise or two that you’re going to hear about in the next two days.”

Here’s the video:

Two days later, Comey made his fateful announcement that the email probe was open again. He later cleared Clinton, but the damage had already been done.


While Horowitz didn’t go into any great detail regarding who was still being investigated by his office, the question he was asked did specifically involve Giuliani, which is clearly an accidental admission that Rudy is on the hot seat. It also means that Giuliani may well be a person of interest to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. If so, things are about to get very ugly for Trump’s attack dog. It couldn’t possibly happen to a more deserving douchebag.

WATCH: Mike Pence Goes Full-On Weasel When Asked About Rob Porter Scandal

How many versions of the updated “truth” have we heard from the Trump administration on the matter of former White House staffer Rob Porter, who allegedly beat both of his ex-wives? Seems the story changes every single day, depending on which official is doing the lying.

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told the press:

“The president and the entire administration take domestic violence very seriously and believe all allegations need to be investigated thoroughly. Above all, the president supports victims of domestic violence and believes everyone deserves to be treated fairly and with due process.”

And yet, when Trump was asked directly for a comment about domestic abuse, he refused to utter a word in response.

Now it’s Mike Pence’s turn. He was asked at a forum hosted by Axios if he believed Chief of Staff John Kelly had been “fully honest and transparent in his explanation” of Porter’s dismissal. Instead of responding directly, Pence resorted to weasel words and praised Kelly for his military service:

“There are very few Americans or American families that have served this nation more honorably or sacrificed more for this country than the family of General John Kelly. John Kelly’s service in uniform, his distinguished service at our department of homeland security where we saw a dramatic reduction of illegal crossings at our southern border, and his distinguished service as chief of staff, gives me and the president great confidence in this good man.”


No one is suggesting Kelly hasn’t sacrificed for his country and served it honorably, but that was in the past, and we’re talking about the present. If any man — no matter his military record — knew a person he hired had been accused of being a wife beater, that man should have booted the staffer out of the office without delay.

Instead, Kelly decided to promote Porter, and was in the process of doing so when the news broke about Porter’s past actions.

There isn’t a single person with a backbone in this administration. They’re all cowards, assholes, fake Christians, and pathetic weasels. Every last one of them needs to be kicked to the curb.
