Good find, Maple.   Mind you, he had a go at getting the Democratic nomination first ... even tried to build his own party too.   His ego must have driven him on to "become" a Republican - seems his comment above about them was accurate !!

There is no way to keep up with the bizarre rambling of Trump, he adds it almost every time he opens his mouth. How about this one from one of his rallies in Montana.


To set the scene I will mention that Trump begins rambling about how no one gives him credit for being a great speaker then says this. WTF does this even mean.

“I have broken more Elton John records. He seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I don’t have a musical instrument. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No, we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look, I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We don’t need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really, we do it without, like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical – the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth, right? The brain. More important than the mouth is the brain. The brain is much more important.”

A representative for Elton John declined to comment on the president’s remarks. 😂

I watched someone break down his statements and his electioneering.

Interesting how the patterns of his messages and statements resonate with how our brains receive information.

I cant be sure but I am certain that was down to identity politics I read.

 

Also the general resentment towards the political class.

 

You've said the bit in bold recently. It doesn't hold water for me. Unless what you mean is, eight years of a Black president fuelled a backlash that flocked to Trump and pushed his numbers just over the edge in a few places, in which case, that would be accurate.

 

General resentment towards the political class, yes. Exactly why Sanders, another political outsider, would have won in 2016 and would have won this year as well. But the DNC care less about beating Trump than they do about ensuring there isn't actual progressivism in the party.

It is so far down the list.

 

- #1 Clinton running a garbage campaign, not even having offices in states she ended up losing by a few thousand votes. No canvassing, no grassroots activity, nothing.

 

- #2 James Comey coming out with the FBI e-mail shit a week before the election.

 

- #3 A completely self-centred campaign strategy. "I'm with her". Trump's message was "I'm with you".

 

- #4 Because she's a "baby-killing, gun-hating Democrat" and also had all the baggage from Bill and Conservative media trashing that basically never let up, she didn't appeal to a large swath of white Karens. She's also a liberal white corporatist feminist so she didn't appeal to women of colour either. Basically the only female vote she was capturing in significant numbers were radlib feminists like this:

 

This, but unironically : neoliberal

 

#4 isn't really even IdPol, it's just demographic stuff. Her campaign was pretty light on IdPol and with good reason. Yes, she token pandered to LGBTQ+, yes, she pandered to people of colour. She had a "coloured" political history regarding those topics and it would've seemed even more disingenuous to actually actively engage in identity politics, so she didn't. Her campaign at least had that much sense. Biden, as we have seen, is already having the same problem, but making it worse by saying things like "if you'd vote for Trump, you're not Black". Ah thanks, old white guy who wrote the crime bill, for being the gatekeeper for true blackness, you racist ****.

 

Anyway, actual IdPol was several notches further down in Clinton's campaign, if at all relevant. It's hard to make a case that it was seeing as 98% of Black women voters cast their votes for Clinton, for example. It's just she didn't energise them into turning out in sufficient numbers to make a difference.

 

As for this election, as long as Biden keeps saying shit like he just did, they'll turn out in even lower numbers for him.

All those things are true.

But those views are held by republicans .

The vote swung in Trumps favour in states normally democrat strongholds.

They are more conservative or centre in American terms.

It's only opinion but some of it backed by research which showed a further swing to the centre (conservative)and the preference for a white male president.

 

As for Biden maybe that's the lesson the Dems think they have learned.

Imagine he wins .

The you ain't black one is not even his worst.

That's simply not accurate. The only true Democrat strongholds of note are New York, California, Illinois, Oregon, Washington, and Minnesota--and many of the smaller New England states of which the biggest vote-wise is Massachusetts. Look up electoral maps historically for context. There is nothing especially conservative or centrist about Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, etc., as contrasted against any other average, battleground state that may be up for grabs in a given four years.

I've based that without looking further back  and the references to mid west blue wall.

Along with Florida I thought was the big shock.

Florida especially flip flops between red and blue all the time. See the 2000 election for the most famous example of it not being a Democrat stronghold at all.

Not a good day for him. Which I'm not going to mock. But anyone who's family members have suffered with Dementia, specifically frontotemporal, will see the signs. 

 

He's getting progressively worse. And the GOP are riding him to the death. Literally.

 

 

 

Added to the fact he can only function at about 7th Grade reading ability. But the jerking and swaying get more pronounced each week it seems. Keep any eye out for it.

"Signs and Symptoms of Frontotemporal Dementia

Each case of FTD is different, but the illness generally becomes more distinguishable from other brain conditions as it progresses. Symptoms may occur in clusters, and some may be more prevalent in early or later stages. Here is a list of ten signs of FTD:

 

Poor judgment

Loss of empathy

Socially inappropriate behavior

Lack of inhibition

Repetitive compulsive behavior

Inability to concentrate or plan

Frequent, abrupt mood changes

Speech difficulties

Problems with balance or movement

Memory loss".

That's ******* outrageous. Although it appears she has been placed on administrative leave from her investment banking job and the dog has been taken away from her.

Tbf she's not wrong about her life being ruined but that's how the world works now, caught on camera being a racist arsehole (and this is a special case as it's obvious what she's doing with the call to the police), you're going to face pretty severe consequences. Crazy how in half a day she's essentially lost her job, her dog and will be a pariah for however long it takes for folk to move onto the next thing. People reported her to the animal shelter she got the dog from years ago :lol: mad how much detail of our lives are readily available to everyone online.

This shit goes way beyond just some self entitled crazy bitch creating a scene out of nothing. If he hadn't been filming this she could very well have ended with him at best being arrested for allegedly "threatening her life" or at worst shot by some trigger happy cop.

There are countless instances from all over he US of black man being shot dead for effectively "walking while black"

There was one recently where a black jogger was pursued by a father and son in a vehicle who then shot him dead.

Aggravated sexual abuse in the first degree is a class B felony - maximum sentence 25 years.

A smart lawyer might also chuck in the presence of the dog as using a lethal weapon too.

 

Smarter course of action would have just been to put the dog's lead on, IMO.

Good. That's proper made my day. Few things make me happier than an utter ***** getting their dues. The worst that'll happen to her is she'll struggle financially and socially. She'll get by, and hopefully learn a ****ing lesson

 

The worst the guy could've had was being shot in the ****ing head. She's an absolute cretin.
