14 KILLED IN SAN BERNADINO, 19 KILLED WHEN OBAMA BOMBED A HOSPITAL. WHO’S THE TERRORIST AGAIN?

12/2/2015: 14 people slaughtered by terrorists at a San Bernadino center for the disabled. In retaliation, we’re bombing ISIS.

10/3/2015: 19 people slaughtered by one of Obama’s drones missing it’s target and hitting a hospital in Afghanistan run by the volunteer group Doctors Without Borders. Patients literally fried in their hospital beds. In retaliation, should the US bomb itself? 19 people is more than 14 and all were killed senselessly.

After the Pentagon changed it’s story 4 times in 4 days regarding the lethal strike on the hospital–a “mistake” which went on for an hour despite all of the top notch, precision weapons and communications our taxes pay for–Obama is now being investigated for war crimes. Why are we still in Afghanistan, the longest war in US history? Obama campaigned on ending it, then extended it and it’s now extended indefinitely. When are we going to start seeing the US as the terrorists we are? And our belligerent foreign policy is directly coming back to bite us, on our own shores in San Bernadino, 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombing. And abroad, as our misguided wars like the one in Iraq created the chaotic breeding ground for ISIS’s formation.

All the GOP candidates believe more war is the answer, as does Hillary. They fail to see that you can’t bomb your enemies into obliteration–which is why we lost the wars (even with our gigantic military budget) against Iraq and Afghanistan. As an allegedly “Christian” nation prepares to celebrate the birthday of their savior, does anyone else remember how Christians used to call Jesus the “Prince Of Peace”? Is there one presidential candidate who represents peace? Peace is such a joke to the US that comedians like Jon Stewart are the loudest national voices for it. It’s a real shame when no one is even suggesting peace. And now they can’t, because we’re so whipped up against muslims that we’re arguing about how much war we need. Not whether we need to stop all of it because it’s causing our problems. US foreign policy is never seen as trustworthy outside of the US. Unless, of course, we’ve bought allies in one of our famous coalitions of the paid off smaller countries.

A FITTING TRIBUTE FOR HOLLY WOODLAWN BY PENNY ARCADE

A lovely remembrance of the late Holly Woodlawn by Penny Arcade. I especially loved this section below, and loved that Holly identified as a low life to such an extent that A Low Life In High Heels was the title of her autobiography! Here’s to Holly’s amazing life and low life!

OUT.COM: “There wasn’t — there was no title for us.” Holly said. “There was no ‘What are you—gay? Straight?’ I lived with Crystal Loringer for six months, with this girl, y’know? You fucked what you liked. We never thought — I mean, it never dawned on me — ‘gay-straight, this-that, bi-, tri-,’ yeah…You just went, if you liked the person, yeah—you got along, yeah…everybody fucked…People think they are freer now but they are not “Now it’s more: ‘Oh, you sleep with men and you also sleep with women, so you’re bisexual. Oh no, it’s like my friend, Adriano. All his life, y’know—he was turned on by women, He was married, then one day, he met a guy and he’s been going with guys ever since. But he still loves women. But, when they ask me about him—because he’s very handsome— ‘Is he gay?’ I don’t know. Does he like men? Does he like women?’ I say, ‘Yeah.’ Yeah what? Yeah, he likes men, and he likes women. It doesn’t, it doesn’t cross his mind, but now you have to be something, Beside I think it’s stupid, y’know. I mean, if you’re fabulous and you go for the person: Hey, hey, yeah—go for it! That’s always been my credo.”

In the era of Caitlyn Jenner, where a reality television star comes out in a multi million-dollar production for five minutes and is considered the voice of the transgender movement, the lives of people like Holly Woodlawn are not only marginalized and made invisible but trivialized. In this period where many transgender women and their advocates are delicate, touchy and prissy, it would behoove them to understand a Holly Woodlawn, rough and ready, not bothered by pronouns, not bothered if her beard was showing. The new world that stretches from middle-class consensus to wealth and million-dollar homes is an entire galaxy away where the battle for visability was fought and won, on the street by originators like Holly who fought for freedom not acceptance and not contracts. A Caitlyn Jenner erases the visibility of Holly Woodlawn and of the transgender and transsexual women like Holly who will never be Republicans and will never play golf.

WHILE TRUMP HOGS ALL THE COVERAGE, OBAMA & CONGRESS ARE LOVING NO CAMERAS ON THEM. HERE’S WHY.

Obama”s still pushing this disastrous TPP trade deal. Everyone wants to talk about the monster Trump, but what Obama’s trade deal will do is monstrous and will hurt most of us. Besides the shenanigans from the campaign trail, work is getting done behind the scenes in DC: Obama’s dirty work.

The job-killing agenda of a corporate Democrat actively trying to ram through “NAFTA on steroids” as his true legacy. And this was corporate Democrat Hillary Clinton’s agenda until she flip-flopped on her support of the TPP right before the first debate so she could seem different from Obama. Same corporate Democrats, same corporate-serving ideology. Check this assessment of the trade deal out before you try to tell me all the great things Obama’s tried to do but was stopped by obstructionist Republicans. Because almost all Republicans in Congress supprt the TPP–so Obama is bucking his own party to ram through a far-reaching trade deal which according to this report, will “harm our economy overall.” Does that sound good to you in any way?

The congressionally created Labor Advisory Committee for Trade Negotiations and Trade Policy (LAC) has just released a scathing report that urges President Obama “in the strongest possible terms” to send the TPP “back to the negotiating table” instead of to Congress, saying the treaty “will harm our economy overall.”

This report was commissioned by Congress to advise Congress and others on whether U.S. trade negotiators met the objectives they were supposed to when negotiating this trade deal. On three basic questions – whether the TPP serves the economic interest of the country, achieves its principal objectives and equitably addresses worker interests – the answers to all three were “no.”

“The TPP is likely to harm U.S. manufacturing interests, cost good jobs, suppress wages, and threaten our democracy and economic security interests,” the report said.

CHILLING INTERVIEW WITH SYRIAN REFUGEE IN CALAIS–WHO IS ALSO A HUNK!

Had to get you gals’ and gays’ attention somehow!

As we lament our “news” media turning into Trump Central, Democracynow.org’s Amy Goodman has been in France covering the COP21 climate change summit. Maybe when all the drama about “What nonsense has Trump spewed now” is done with and he is no longer even in the running, the rest of us will turn to the crises that we can’t escape, like the damage that our leaders’ greed is doing to the planet we can live on. I’m glad that a responsible journalist like Amy is looking at the big picture.

As the summit winds down, Amy visits Calais in this segment. There’s a huge refugee camp there, with the refugees huddle in tents divided in areas divided by their countries of origin. Most are countries the US has bombed. After Obama extended the war in Afghanistan indefinitely, we continue drone strikes in countries we haven’t even declared on war on. Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan and we’re now bombing in Syria. And then we wonder how muslims in the US can become “radicalized.” Well, if I were a kid in Yemen who preferred cloudy days to sunny ones because US drones are less likely to kill me when it’s overcast, that situation might radicalize me just a little bit. To grow up with fear and hatred of the US–yeah, that might make some want to lash out at the US and even ally themselves with hateful ideologies like that of ISIS.

But some just want to escape. Cut to Amy, in Calais, interviewing a gorgeous young Syrian named Majd. He’s a refugee in “The Jungle” camp. He smiles so often during this interview, that it’s a little offputting. It almost makes him look as if he just wants camera time or to become a youtube sensation. That was my cynical take before this 21 year old man, whose family sent him away from them in Syria just to survive, told me his tales in this moving clip. I hope you’ll check it out. Here’s a little of the exchange.

AMY GOODMAN: Do you think the Russian, Syrian, French, British bombing of Syria will save it?

MAJD: No, no, no, it’s not a solution. You can’t protect someone by killing someone else. You know? They can’t stop the bombs here when they bomb in Syria. Yes, it’s not a solution.

AMY GOODMAN: What is the solution?

MAJD: The solution is not giving the weapons to everyone. They’re giving the weapons to the Free Army, to the Assad regime, to ISIS. They just give weapons and money, and just they let them fight in my country. Just stop the weapons.

AMY GOODMAN: Now, Britain just voted. The U.K. just voted to bomb Syria, as well. You want to try to get into Britain.

MAJD: Britain or the U.S.A. The governments or the people? Who votes? Who voted? I’m asking. The government, who—I mean, it’s not the people.

 

YOU DON’T HAVE TO UNDERSTAND SOMETHING TO LIKE IT….

Comigo é assim derrubo até o titanic kkkkkkkk !!!!

WHY THE DOUBLE STANDARD FOR MUSLIM AND CHRISTIAN EXTREMISTS AFTER THEIR ATTACKS

We’re always insisting that ordinary muslims condemn extremist attacks whenever they occur. And quite rightly. But why aren’t so-called average Christians condemning Christian hate speech below? Because they’re too interested in grabbing donations to stand up and say anything which might offend their backward congregations? What kind of Christians urge carrying guns and killing muslims as Falwell has done? And what sort of alleged Christians say nothing to distance themselves from them? Their silence is deafening. Did you hear any Christians denouncing radical fundamentalists who’ve killed abortion doctors and just shot up a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs killing three? I didn’t.

“Last week Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University, gave a speech encouraging students to carry guns and kill Muslims.
“I’ve always thought that if more good people had concealed-carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in and killed them,” he said. The school is also offering students free classes to get their permits.
Liberty University is the largest Southern Baptist school in the nation, yet so far Southern Baptist leaders have been shamefully silent in response to Falwell’s call to arms. Even Russell Moore, who heads the denomination’s “religious liberty” efforts and has criticized Donald Trump, has said nothing about Falwell.

It’s appalling that a so-called “Christian” university would promote violence and Islamophobia. Let’s show church leaders it’s time to speak out.

Tell Southern Baptist leaders: Condemn Falwell’s “end those Muslims” remarks.”

WHY DO GOV’TS MISS SO MANY CRUCIAL WARNINGS? 9/11/PARIS ATTACKS/SAN BERNADINO

I’ve been away for about two weeks and I’ve returned to see a much uglier world following the San Bernadino attacks. In Obama’s recent speech, he said we need to keep assault weapons away from people on the No-Fly list. Sounds like common sense to me–they’re suspicious enough to be on a list, so let’s keep assault weapons out of their hands. Not exactly rocket science. But I suppose the powerful gun industry needs to get paid even if we’re selling weapons to terrorists who then gun us down. Please don’t ever let any kind of reason or our safety curb gun sales.

Obama: “Right now, people on the No-Fly list can walk into a store and buy a gun. That is insane. If you’re too dangerous to board a plane, you’re too dangerous, by definition, to buy a gun.” Agreed.

But why didn’t anyone think of this before? Why did french and belgian authorities miss many warning signs in advance of their recent attacks? Kind of like when George W. Bush ignored a warning that terrorists would use planes to strike the World Trade Center shortly before it happened. And the 9/11 hjiackers were all on the No-Fly list. I’m not suggesting that governments don’t make mistakes occasionally, and attacks can come from anywhere at any time. But all of these missed warnings seem suspicious.

We may miss advance warnings, but after these attacks we never miss an opportunity to jump into war. Wouldn’t it be far cheaper and safer if we prevented the attacks in the West which now “force” us to engage in combat? Or does our government actually want attacks to happen on our soil to happen so that we always have an excuse for more war? A year or so ago, John Kerry and Obama were trying to get us to go to war with Syria. Voters told their representatives in Congress absolutely not–we didn’t want another war in the Middle East no matter how many times we were shown footage of Syrian babies being gassed. So Congress had to go back to DC and tell the White House that they couldn’t muster enough support for war. After San Bernadino, war is a much easier sell and every major candidate is now angling to attack. Obama’s being painted as the wimp president who doesn’t want boots on the ground. All the republicans (except possibly Rand Paul) and Hillary support a more forceful stance against Syria. So now both parties’ frontrunners are hawks. Neither party sees peace in the cards for the US, despite voters saying we need to ditch nation-building abroad and rebuild this country’s crumbling infrastructure. Bernie says we need to let arab nations surrounding Syria put their boots on the ground. But why should they step up, when western nations will jump at the chance for more conflict? Not to protect us–they blew those chances when missing warnings for 9/11, the Paris attacks and San Bernadino. But to get weapons manufacturers and defense contractors paid.

THIS IS THE REAL REASON WE’RE JUMPING INTO WAR WITH SYRIA

Want to know why France, the UK, the US and maybe Russia are suddenly bombing Syria? And why the US has been trying to get into a war in Syria for over a year? War makes some people a lot of money. It rarely makes the people who make money from selling war machines injured, killed, homeless, or stricken with PTSD as it does soldiers.

ALTERNET.ORG: Palm Beach, CA – At a Credit Suisse conference in West Palm Beach this week, representatives from major defense contractors spoke to their investors about how well business was going in these times of global war. Representatives from top firms like Raytheon, Oshkosh, and Lockheed Martin were in attendance, in somewhat of a celebration of the escalating conflict in the middle east and Africa.

Lockheed Martin Executive Vice President Bruce Tanner gave a speech openly praising the “indirect” benefits that defense contractors would see as a result of the war in Syria. A portion of his speech was captured on audio by someone inside and shared widely on the internet hours after the conference.

In the audio that was captured, Tanner discussed the many recent troubles in the Middle East, with an escalation of conflict in Syria and Turkey. He pointed out how these conflicts would lead to increased sales for their company.
According to the Intercept, during another speech at the conference, Wilson Jones, the president of the defense manufacturer Oshkosh, said that “with the ISIS threat growing, there are more countries interested in buying Oshkosh-made M-ATV armored vehicles.”

Raytheon Chief Executive Tom Kennedy also joined in the informal celebration, saying that his company was seeing “a significant uptick for defense solutions across the board in multiple countries in the Middle East.”

“It’s all the turmoil they have going on, whether the turmoil’s occurring in Yemen, whether it’s with the Houthis, whether it’s occurring in Syria or Iraq, with ISIS,” Kennedy added.
In addition to the growing wars, the contractors also celebrated the fact that the defense sector was recently granted a $607 billion budget by the government.

“Our programs are well supported [in the budget]. We think we did fare very well,” Tanner concluded.
A recent report by journalist Glenn Greenwald pointed out stock prices for weapons manufacturers sharply increased just after the terrorist attacks in Paris last month. Greenwald was following the tip of Brooklyn journalist Aaron Cantú, who posted screenshots for the recent stock performances of major weapons contractors on his Twitter page.

SIGN TO TELL CNN AND MSNBC TO STOP COVERING TRUMP NON-STOP!

I signed this, but CNN and MSNBC have joined Fox News in the gutter with their over-coverage of Trump. I’m sure there is a wealth of brash statements in his psychotic mind he could make from now until election time. But even the GOP is acknowledging that while Trump’s currently in the lead, this clown will drop off after creating a stir with outrageous pronouncements as Republicans look for a more serious candidate who could possibly win in a general election.

Especially for MSNBC, making Trump the lead story in every news hour is so disappointing. And it proves how our one allegedly liberal news station is not liberal. No one watching MSNBC is gonna vote for Trump or likely any GOP candidate. So while it’s anchors regurgitate Trump’s latest crap, our “liberal” media is constantly placing the ball in Trump’s corner and framing the debate around his nonsense. If banning muslims from entering the country is both impossible and unconstitutional, then it’s just a fool making a ridiculous claim, as he did when stating that he’d get Mexico to pay for the wall he’d build.

And for every second devoted to Trump, that’s more time that MSNBC fails to analyze what the Democrats are proposing. I’d rather see analysts break down Hillary’s tax plan vs Bernie’s tax plan and see how that shakes down for the average American. Bernie’s offering free college and health care–wouldn’t you like to discuss how that is possible or if it is? How do we pay for it? Do you know Hillary’s vs Bernie’s position on immigration, abortion rights, black lives matter, addressing climate change, jobs, infrastructure or much else? No, but we are well versed in non-stop Trumpisms instead. And non-stop analysis of a Republican who is likely to drop off, making even his most idiotic pronouncements irrelevant in a few months.

Regardless of your party, this country is a mess. And if the programming of our “news” has become TMZ, good luck to us all who crave analysis of how to get out of this mess.

PETITION: MSNBC and CNN: Stop promoting Donald Trump.

CREDO ACTION: Within hours of Donald Trump proposing a ban on all Muslims entering the United States, both MSNBC and CNN interrupted their evening programming to broadcast live footage from a Trump campaign rally in South Carolina. MSNBC took it a step further, quickly announcing that Trump would appear live on its Morning Joe program the next morning, for the second time in just eight days.

The media’s obsession with Donald Trump has gone too far. By relentlessly chasing ratings and devoting massive airtime to Donald Trump interviews and live coverage of his speeches, MSNBC and CNN are providing Trump with free publicity that is fueling his campaign.

MSNBC and CNN should be covering Trump as a candidate, but should not be giving him a near 24/7 national platform to promote his racist and Islamophobic views.

Tell MSNBC and CNN: Stop promoting Donald Trump’s racist presidential campaign.

The media’s obsession with Donald Trump has real consequences for our Democracy. Desperate for ratings, the cable news networks have decided to broadcast nearly-continuous coverage of Donald Trump’s campaign at the expense of giving real issues the coverage they deserve.

As policy fights play out in the halls of power in Washington, DC, large swaths of the electorate remain uninformed, with cable news coverage largely limited to live coverage of Trump campaign rallies and shouting matches between pundits over whether Trump’s latest racist proposal will help or hurt him among Republican primary voters.

We aren’t suggesting that MSNBC and CNN should ignore Donald Trump entirely, but the near-continuous coverage of recent weeks has got to stop. And when they do cover Trump, they should contextualize their coverage by pointing out his long history of racism, Islamophobia and hate. As Arianna Huffington promised in a piece this week, the Huffington Post will continue covering Trump’s campaign, but at the same time will “constantly remind the public of what he stands for”:1

His enthusiasm for creating a database of all Muslims in the United States.

His ongoing lies about Muslims in New Jersey celebrating 9/11.

His status as birther-in-chief, cynically sowing doubt about President Obama’s legitimacy as the duly elected President of the United States.

His misogyny — here’s just one HuffPost piece on this, but there’s no shortage of these.

His xenophobia and scapegoating of immigrants, including his lies about Mexican immigrants and his ardent desire to deport millions of undocumented immigrants.

His unmistakable passion for bullying. Again, there’s no shortage of examples, but you could start with his defense of supporters who roughed up a protester at one of his rallies or his ridiculing of a disabled New York Times reporter.
Donald Trump absolutely has a First Amendment right to say whatever he wants, no matter how hateful. And the news media should cover him as a leading presidential candidate. But it’s irresponsible and dangerous for MSNBC and CNN to provide Trump with a free national platform to bolster his campaign fueled by bigotry and racism.

Join us in telling MSNBC and CNN that their viewers deserve better than wall-to-wall, uncritical coverage of Donald Trump’s racist campaign.

Tell MSNBC and CNN: Stop promoting Donald Trump’s racist presidential campaign.

Thanks for everything you do.

WHY I ENTHUSIASTICALLY SUPPORT BERNIE SANDERS FOR PRESIDENT

Do you remember the first time most of us heard about Barack Hussein Obama? The then Illinois senator made such a splash with his keynote address at the Democratic National Convention that he was dubbed a rising star overnight. He did then go on, despite his limited experience, to win the democratic nomination over the more establishment candidate Hillary Clinton. (One major reason he won was that Obama denounced Bush’s war in Iraq, which Hillary showed her true colors by voting for.)

Obama’s meteoric rise happened quickly, but it didn’t happen overnight. Then President George W. Bush was a war-starting, ignorant Texas oil man who we’d suffered through two terms of. The Iraq war, Katrina, the Patriot Act, torture–the list of Bush’s nightmares go on and on. The country was ready for the opposite of Bush: a mixed race democrat from a big city up north who was a professor, not a moron born with a silver spoon in his mouth. So the DNC carefully and successfully groomed Obama to become the antidote to Bush, even bypassing the Clintons with their considerable connections and coins. The establishment democrats have groomed no one else for this election. Elizabeth Warren is a rising progressive star, yet she isn’t running. (Did Hillary and the establishment sit her down and say “Not this time, girl”?)There’s really no other fresh blood beside Warren. If there had been, we’d have seen O’Malley, Jim Webb, etc being groomed as viable alternatives. The fact that we heard for months that Biden might run is proof of what a limited choice we have on the left–cuz ain’t nothin’ fresh about Biden. While we may laugh at the goons running on the right, it’s sad that the democrats have so little choice. So few with a burning desire to lead. Probably because they know that Hillary has the money locked up. And for voters who don’t look at policies or watch debates, Hillary’s war chest can buy TV ads on repeat to craft positive perceptions about her.

Let me tell you something very serious. Even if the democrats were looking for someone to groom, they would never, ever pick Senator Bernie Sanders. He’s an old socialist jew from Brooklyn who represents the kooky, small state of Vermont. Not to mention that he has the personality of a grumpy professor. He isn’t attractive, doesn’t come from a political dynasty like the Bushes or Clintons and doesn’t have tons of cash. However, he has raised more money in small contributions than Obama had at this point in Obama’s win over Hillary.

Against all odds, Bernie is in second place. Why? Because his ideas are resonating with voters. It’s almost as if the little guy–like him, like us–can actually make it. He’s the candidate of working Americans who want affordable health care and college and who wants to see corporations and the wealthiest pay their fair share of taxes for a change. His message is so on point with what the country needs now that Hillary has stolen several of his talking points in order to make herself more electable. No one dreamed that Bernie Sanders, the democratic socialist, would ever make it this far.

And to his credit, Bernie is seen as honest. So honest that some GOP voters are feeling the Bern. Sanders isn’t perfect, but he hasn’t changed his position a zillion times on gay rights, on the Trans Pacific Partnership, on fair banking practices–the way even Hillary supporters acknowledge that she’s switched her positions. And if she’s changing her positions mid-election, just imagine what she’ll do if elected and has to pay back all of her banking and defense industry donors. Bernie was marching with Martin Luther King in the 60s when that wasn’t the done thing for most white politicians. He’s supported gay rights since the 80s. Hillary would love to be able to claim the same thing–yet for some reason, many gay men feel that Hillary is their savior. Do they want a Jackie O doll to dress up? They can’t support her because of her policies. Because she hasn’t been overly supportive of gays rights, waffling on gay marriage as late as 2013 when even average Americans polled were more pro-gay marriage than her. She’ll say whatever she needs to say to get elected. Both Bernie’s policies and his record make him seem the more trustworthy choice. Surely, this would recommend Bernie to everyone still waiting for the hope and change Obama promised and never delivered.

A common argument I hear is that Bernie can’t win in the general election. No, he can’t–if you don’t support him. He’s the candidate with the enthusiasm and grass roots groundswell behind him.With the small contributions rather than the giant banks who make up most of Hillary’s top donors. If you’re supporting Hillary just because you think she can save us from a GOP lunatic, that isn’t enthusiasm. It’s an admission that we must choose between two candidates of questionable ethics and policies. With choices like that, ain’t the good ole USA free? A choice between two questionable candidates is all we get?

And let me suggest this–many polls have had either Bernie or Hillary beating the various leading republican candidates in a general election. Even the GOP establishment is horrified by joke candidates like Trump and Carson in the lead. So if the republican candidates are so putrid that any democrat we nominate could win, why not vote for an honest, true progressive democrat like Bernie? If you’re a working American who isn’t really feeling the alleged economic recovery the news keeps telling us about, a vote for Bernie is a vote for yourself. A vote for Hillary is a vote for corporations, bankers, billionaires, war and lord knows what else since if she stays true to her iffy voting record, she represents a giant WHO KNOWS? A rising star named Obama beat her once, and a rising star can beat her again if we vote based on policies like Bernie’s which actually give us hope and might actually deliver much needed change. But that enthusiasm needs to swell if it’s going to counter all of Hillary’s cash and the baggage she brings with her. So if you support Bernie or are considering him and want some fresh ideas out there, please share this post!

PS: I mentioned Obama’s middle name Hussein in this post for a reason. Do you remember that feeling of OMG–not only is a guy who is not white winning the White House over a more established democrat like Clinton who is linked to war, but also a man named Barack Hussein Obama is winning? If we get involved and learn which candidate has policies which would benefit us–we can do anything.

OBAMA IS LYING ABOUT THE TPP

“We are also being told that we must adopt the TPP so that the United States, rather than China, sets the future rules. This is naive and disingenuous.”

That translates to Obama is lying about the TPP. Why we can’t say that the president’s lying when the Trans Pacific Partnership will hurt most Americans is beyond me. The author goes way beyond soft-pedaling it saying “The Obama administration surely negotiated the TPP in good faith”–HUNGH? He negotiated it in secret with corporate lobbyists at his side. What kind of good faith is that? In good faith that corporations would win bizarre new rights masked as a trade deal? In good faith that Americans are more concerned with discussing Starbucks than a trade deal which will hurt them far worse than the million manufacturing jobs killed by Bill Clinton’s NAFTA? Both Republicans and Democrats are out to shaft working Americans. You’ll see no Republicans in Congress blocking Obama on the TPP. The top, which is so odious to democratic values that Hillary had to flip-flop on her previous support of it right before the first election so that she could seem like a real democrat instead of another Trojan horse for corporations like Obama.

I did enjoy this comment below the Huffpo piece:

“FYI – All 13 of the democratic senators that voted for Fast Track and the TPP are endorsing Hillary. Discuss among yourselves…”

BUN-BUN IN SANDYLAND!

Enjoyed chatting with Sandra Bernhard yesterday on Sandlyland, her new SirisuXM radio show on Andy Cohen’s channel. Andy even popped by! Beyonce, Kim Davis, Elvis, politics, NYC’s somewhat resurging performance scene, David Ilku, Trey Speegle, Taylor Mac, Amber Martin and Sid Gold’s Request Room, the Pyramid exhibit at the Howl Gallery were all discussed. I brought Sandy a t-shirt and can you believe that mannequin wears a size small? Your size is available on LadyBunny.net!

MICHELLE VISAGE’S NEW BOOK: THE DIVA RULES

I interviewed Michelle Visage at the Strand bookstore in NYC last week for a packed kick-off tour. She has a new book called The Diva Rules which is part autobiography and part diva-in-training tips. As some of you know, I’m obsessed with the news and don’t watch much reality TV–even when I’m on it. Cuz I’m cuckoo like that. However, I cherish the times I’ve gotten to hang out with Michelle at gigs. I don’t know her as a bitchy judge as you may view her as–I see her as a warm-hearted friend who’s always game for some giggles and gossip and is not afraid to express strong opinions even if they ain’t popular. While traveling to gigs may seem glamorous, those shared moments with other performers I’ve befriended mean the world to me. (But enough about performers and back to Michelle!) Seriously, in between those moments on stage, there’s a lot of grueling travel, sound checks and sitting alone in hotel rooms. They can be nice hotels or sometimes they’re dumps. But being on the road in any hotel can be just plain lonely and Michelle’s the antidote for that. You know the feeling–when you’re in a glamorous destination but you’re really missing your pets back home. My pets are mice and roaches–so easy to care for! The roaches actually eat the mouse poop so it works out great for a gal on the go.

When asked to host her kick-off book tour, I hesitated. I don’t know all Drag Race trivia from every season. But it turned out I didn’t need to, because there is a natural chemistry between us as evidenced in this video. Dancer/choreographer Cesar Valentino was in attendance, and I was reminded that in her many incarnations one of her first was voguer. Yes, a white girl voguing back in the day with supernova Willie Ninja at events like Suzanne Bartsch’s Love Ball. Then on to pop stardom with her girl group Seduction, radio jock and now TV personality.
The audience seemed to really enjoy this presentation and I felt happy to be part of the Drag Race/Drag U/World Of Wonder family. I may be the demented, slutty aunt of the WOW family who says inappropriate things, but I actually tried to keep it clean here for Miss Visage’s younger fans. Despite this camera angle highlighting my 3rd chin, maybe the head honchos over at World Of Wonder will check this out and see what I see: a Bunny chat show on TV! Maybe we can call it Chat Sow? Just putting that out there to Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey, Thairin Smothers, RuPaul Charles and all the other crazies at WOW. I don’t like soundbites, I don’t like any message that can be reduced to a hashtag, but I do enjoy in-depth chats with interesting folks if people still have the attention span for them. LOGO, are you listening? Anyhoo–check it out and let me know whatcha think! After you’ve finished masturbating to my chins!

MEET KEVIN SWANSON, THE LATEST, MOST VIRULENT ANTI-GAY PREACHER

While many in both political parties have marveled at the lunacy this year’s GOP candidates, a new low came from a republican rally in Des Moines. “Sackcloth and ashes.” That’s what the religious leader/host of this event thinks he’d need to help stand in vigil against gay marriage. Gays are not only getting married, but their parents are actually being invited to the weddings, he explained in horror. Kevin Swanson himself claims he would “sit in cow manure and spread it all over my body” if his child married a same-sex partner. Because smearing cow dung is a potent spell from the BIble which magically negates gay marriage? I don’t think this actually works but I’d love to see it in action. And I don’t know what sackcloth even is, but I can recognize a sack of shit.

Swanson claims that condoning gay marriage is like “carving happy faces on the sores” of any society which permits gay marriage. He then goes on to quote the Bible’s assertion in Leviticus that gays be put to death for the sin of homosexuality.

Both of these videos in the link are shocking. At times Swanson seems showboating, as if this is a rehearsed sermon he’s delivered before. And it works. Several hateful, deluded members of his congregation applaud when he calls for the death penalty for gays. But then at other times, he becomes so delirious with his righteousness that it feels he may actually believe his drivel. He also appears unhinged. I’m sure he’s feel the same about me.

But I’m not trying to put anyone to death. Swanson is claiming Leviticus calls for it. While we rarely see hatred this intense spewed on video, it’s not uncommon in the christian church. Just remember, it was a christian group which helped create Uganda’s Kill The Gays Bill. I said at the time that fundamentalist freaks saw killing gays in Africa like it was an out of town tryout for a Broadway show. And that it’s disgrace that every US president breaks bread with The Family, the conservative think-tank instrumental in working on this Ugandan legislation which shocked the world with it’s barbarity. The Family has an annual “Prayer Breakfast” which every president for decades has spoken at every single year. Every year? Shameful! I know gay rights activists scratched their heads when a newly elected Obama tapped the “talents” of anti-gay fundamentalist pastor Rick Warren for his inauguration, claiming he wanted to represent all Americans.

Sorry, but I reject this and demand that ANY candidate claiming to be pro-GLBT rights shun any group promoting or connected to a death to gays agenda. This country was founded on religious freedom and a separation of church and state. You believe whatever you want to believe–I’ve got Jehovah’s witness relatives who would rather see their kids die than give them a blood transfusion because of their religion. But evangelicals’ half-baked, murderous policies based on a dusty book of fairy tales written by over a dozen conflicting authors thousands of years ago have no place at the table in creating laws for the fact-based community living in 2015. There is no official religion in this country. That’s why we take down statues representing The 10 Commandments from outside government buildings, which has made evangelical think there’s a war on Christmas and christianity. There isn’t. Sensible, modern folks just don’t want any religion mixed in with or any part of of legislation which applies to all US citizens, who aren’t only christians.

Fer chrissakes, even many republican voters have said gay marriage isn’t such a big deal to them. Yet three GOP presidential candidates were present at this anti-gay marriage event hosted by lunatic Kevin Swanson. For those who claim that not all christians are so full of hate, I agree. My parents are not anti-gay and are deeply devoted christians. But we need these moderate christians to step up and denounce preachers like Swanson as what they are: wannabe murderers. The most virulent anti-gay sentiment always comes from religion. Without the Bible, these frightening clowns would simply be bigoted @ssholes. Where are the moderate christians on this? Either denounce your christian brethren as hateful and murderous or your silence is making you guilty by association.

HILLARY JUST GOT AN ENDORSEMENT FROM AN ENVIRONMENTAL GROUP WHILE HER TOP DONORS ARE CONNECTED TO BIG OIL?

Now we’re staring to have different groups endorse different candidates. This article goes out to the environmental group League Of Conversation Voters which just endorsed Hillary Clinton, who will NEVER address climate change in any way that shafts her donors. Just as corporate “democrat” Obama claimed that climate change is one his his top 3 big ticket agenda items for his third term–while approving the first ever offshore drilling on the US east coast from Florida from Virginia. Scientists claim we need to leave the vast majority of fossil fuels in the ground to avoid the most disastrous effects of climate change. I say we need to leave the vast majority of politicians in the dust who work on behalf of their corporate benefactors rather than to take any real leadership role in shaking up the dirty deals which needs to be shaken. For the only planet we have to live on. Not a partisan issue–just common sense. But “democrats” like Hillary and Obama and most Republicans’ common sense is easily clouded by campaign cash.

And to all of the ladies supporting Hillary because she’s a woman and you think it’s “time for a female president” regardless of what she represents, I pledge my allegiance to another gal whose been around since time began but who is ailing: MOTHER EARTH. Remembah huh? She’s no friend of Hillary’s.

HUFFPO: Hillary Clinton’s Biggest Campaign Bundlers Are Fossil Fuel Lobbyists

Clinton’s top campaign financiers are linked to Big Oil, natural gas and the Keystone pipeline.

While our “news” channels reports on barbs traded by presidential candidates, none of them report on what the president in power is actually doing. Well, here it is! This evil manifestation of greed crosses party lines. It even crosses the lines of countries, whose heads of states simply negotiate in secret directly with multi-national corporations to ensure they get what they want. It’s so ugly that Hillary had to flip-flop a few days before the first debate and turn against Obama’s TPP. After praising it just a couple years ago as the “gold standard” of trade agreements as Secretary Of State. And as this video shows, the TPP is only the tip of the overly aggressive imperialist iceberg of the US and UK. So please watch this informative video. Or just look away from what is destroying you and discuss which candidate was on SNL.
