    • The Espionage Act Is Bad Law Even When It Is Used Against People I Despise Like Trump
      Back in June 2019, the New Yorker wrote an article lambasting the Espionage Act. The George W. Bush Administration pursued several government insiders for leaking classified information, but it was the Obama Administration that normalized the use of the Espionage Act against journalists’ sources. Among its targets were Jeffrey Sterling, a former C.I.A. offic […]

Tom Vilsack Doesn’t Get It. (Heh heh, I said Vilsack.)

Well, well, well. Isn’t this interesting.

Will Bower was just on Neil Cavuto’s show. He did us proud – explaining why we want Hillary’s name in nomination and why Senator Obama is unacceptable to us. (Let’s say the word “flip-flop” was prominently used.) Will said that under no circumstances would he vote for Barack Obama, and neither would most PUMAs. 

Then, Governor Tom Vilsack was on to respond.

He basically said, “No no everything is fine we are going to have unity Hillary is supporting Obama Bill loves Obama everything is beautiful and there will be no trouble at the Convention la la la la la I can’t hear you!”

Cavuto asked many pointed questions, but the response was always the same.

“Awwwww, those poor little Clinton supporters. They’re upset. They’ll get over it when they realize how great Obama is on the issues and how much better things will be when Obama is President.”

Is this guy fucking kidding me? I am starting to think that there is brain eraser in that Kool-Aid.

Hello, Democratic Leaders? YOUR CONSTITUENTS ARE TALKING TO YOU. Why aren’t you listening? What is wrong with you?

Our problems with Obama are based on the issues. We are not Republicans who go crazy because we are afraid Obama is not Christian enough to keep all the little zygotes from being murdered in their wombs. We don’t care if his middle name is “Hussein” and we don’t think he is a secret Muslim being brainwashed by Angela Lansbury to murder all the white people in their sleep. For Jeebus’ sake, WAKE UP! We don’t think Obama will be a good President because he is a liar, a total opportunist who will betray anyone and everyone in order to gain power and prestige. He has no beliefs. He has no principles. He loves himself more than should be humanly possible. And, he’s being financed by huge corporate interests who have no desire to rock their financial boats.

In short, he reminds us of George W. Bush.

All I can say is, if you think this Convention is going without a hitch, Mr. Sock Puppet Vilsack, you are out of your freaking mind. And if you do manage to nominate Oba-moi, please know that he will never, EVER be President of the United States. You and your pathetic, elitist comrades-in-Unity(TM) will be going down in flames.
