      Need a bit of levity? Maybe this post will give you a bit of a chuckle!

      Winston Churchill's grandson calls Trump a 'daft twerp'

      President Trump has been called a lot of names since entering office, but an English lawmaker just used a term that has the potential to become a new nickname.

      The president has been called Ignorant, mentally unstable, an orange orangutan and even a dotard by Kim Jong Un. The world is still trying to figure out exactly what that last one means.

      Now, the grandson of one of Britain’s most famous leaders has added another name to that list. "Daft Twerp" lol

      10 most common words Americans use to describe Trump

      "incompetent," "arrogant," "strong," "idiot," "egotistical," "ignorant," "great," "racist," "a------" and "narcissistic."


      Any descriptive words you'd like to add? ;-). . . . I would add "dangerous,"

      "con-man." and "fraud."

      TRUMP STARTS UP A PETITION AGAINST PROTESTING NFL PLAYERS

          Not content to bully NFL owners into firing any player who protests, he has launched a petition asking his supporters to show their patriotism by signing onto it.

          “The President has asked for a list of supporters who stand for the National Anthem. Add your name below to show your patriotism and support,” said the petition issued on Thursday by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a fundraising organization for Trump and Vice President Mike Pence."

          This petition comes right after NFL owners decide not to punish players who kneel during the National Anthem to protest against the killing of unarmed black men and boys, and to highlight the racial disparities that exist in our country’s criminal justice system.

          Rachel Maddow Blows The Lid Off Niger Green Beret Deaths

              Rachel Maddow Does It Again!

              Blows The Lid Off Niger Green Beret Deaths

              Rachel Maddow reveals "baffling" Trump decision that may have led to deadly ambush


              By Ray Cunneff

              October 20, 2017

              MSNBC's Rachel Maddow had a particularly extraordinary program last night (Thursday 10/19). The bombshell Wisconsin voter suppression story (see below) was rivaled by Rachel's stunning revelations concerning America's interests in Central Africa.

              Maddow's uncanny ability to "connect-the-dots" and develop a cohesive narrative may help explain the deaths of the four Green Berets in Niger (and why Donald Trump seems so reluctant to discuss it).

              Hint: Trump administration's "bewildering", "inexplicable" decision to put Chad on the travel ban list.

              The Trump team never seems to consider cause-and-effect consequences of their often arbitrary, ill-considered decisions. To this date, no one has been able to properly explain why Chad went on the travel ban (apart from speculation related to Tillerson's Exxon/Mobil regional interests).

              Trump's 12-day's-belated phone call to the widow of one of the fallen soldiers, Sgt. La David Johnson, has dominated the headlines since the news was first revealed. The president reportedly told Johnson's wife that her husband "knew what he signed up for" and appeared not to know the soldier's name.

              This comes after Trump made false claims about how his predecessors handled the death of U.S. service members, and hid behind the death of Chief of Staff John Kelly's son in Afghanistan, in what appeared to many another Trump distraction, a magician's misdirection.

              “Something about what happened in Niger has caused this president,

              apparently instinctively, to divert the conversation from

              what happened to those soldiers”.

              -Rachel Maddow

              But Maddow was able to stitch the story together:

              A month after being inexplicably put on the Trump travel ban, Chad, our primary military ally in the region, pulled its troops out of Mali and Niger and may well have inadvertently set the stage for the ambush of our servicemen.

              By virtually all accounts, this massacre by at least fifty ISIS-related troops represents a major failure of both U.S. support and Intel. And when help finally arrived, it was the French and a private contractor that came, too late, to the rescue.

              And now, more than two weeks after the fact, there is still no detailed account of how this happened. When asked if the Pentagon had been forthcoming about the circumstances of the ISIS ambush, Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain said "Of course not".

              When asked what steps he would be willing to take to receive the information he's demanding on the attack, McCain said "It may require a subpoena".

              On CNN earlier today, retired Major General James “Spider” Marks vented his frustration:

              "What was the purpose, what was the objective of this engagement? At the end of

              all of these, every time there is a death, you know, there is an investigation.”

              "What were the intelligence assets available for the Africa command to approve this engagement?

              And I would never second-guess those decisions. When you do your forensics on all of this,

              there are higher priority targets someplace else that were taking intelligence collection

              assets away, that the folks on the ground had been given a good snapshot

              that this was a permissive environment."


              "So the team worked desperately. You can only imagine they were fighting for each other

              – there is incredible confusion, they haven’t seen anything like this in the previous

              29 patrols they have conducted in the area. They are outgunned, out-manned by

              ISIS fighters. They don’t know what’s going on. At the moment of the engagement,

              they don’t know what is taking place other than they are being shot at.”


              Sgt. La David Johnson, Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson and Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright died in the October 4th attack, after consulting with local leaders in Niger as part of the effort to combat terrorists, in what was believed to be a routine mission.

              Sketchy initial reports suggested the 12-member US team was leaving a meeting in unarmored pick-up trucks when they began taking fire from small arms, machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades, according to a US defense official. After-action report: four dead, two wounded. (At least one member of Niger armed forces may have been killed as well.)

              It remains unclear why Sgt. Johnson's body was not recovered, nearly a mile away from the battlefield, for 48 hours.

              Or who recovered it.

                  bare bones of tax cut plan of the soon to be trump oligarchy/kleptocracy. in case you think this is hyperbole:

                  oligarchy |ˈäləˌɡärkē| noun (plural oligarchies) a small group of people having control of a country, organization, or institution:the ruling oligarchy of military men around the president.a country governed by an oligarchy: the English aristocratic oligarchy of the 19th century.government by oligarchy.

                  kleptocrat |ˈkleptəˌkrat| nouna ruler who uses political power to steal his or her country's resources.

                  from oxford dictionary


                  "what the Trump plan would actually do. Among other things, it would cut the corporate tax rate from thirty-five per cent to twenty per cent; allow corporations to expense their capital investments immediately; set a new rate of twenty-five per cent for so-called pass-through businesses, such as partnerships and sole proprietorships; allow multinational corporations to repatriate trillions of dollars they are holding abroad at a low tax rate; abolish the estate tax; abolish the Alternative Minimum Tax; and reduce the number of personal-income tax brackets from seven to three."

                      Or to OrdinaryJosephine ..since she's well versed and throughly informed on 45's demeanor, and how he treats KIA's under his watch....

                      1. Why was Sgt. La David T. Johnson of Miami Gardens, Florida cut off from a 4-team green beret unit???

                      2. Where and why was he NOT with the rest of the team ?

                      3. Why did it take 2-days to find him?

                      4. Was he captured, tortured, then killed ?

                      5. Why isn't his coffin an " open casket ?for his next of kin , family, friends, and fellow green berets?

                      6.why is he(45) treating gold star family's of color ..disrespectful?

                          SEAN SPICER TRASHES WORKING FOR TRUMP IN DISASTROUS MEETING WITH HARVARD STUDENTS (DETAILS)


                          Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer is not holding back in his criticisms of Trump since he was ousted from the administration.

                          Spicer's gig at the Emmy's seems to have been a prelude to what was to come. The

                          Recently, Spicer spoke to students at the Institute of Politics, at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. When interviewed by a Huffington Post journalist about what they learned from Mr. Spicer, the students seemed to believe that Spicer spent a lot of his speech criticizing his former boss, including such remarks as Trump liking alternative facts.

                          Students seemed to have gone away from Spicer's speech with the idea that "the entire thing was just a defense of every waking moment he [Spicer] served."
