THE WEEK

1. Trump slams ‘disloyal’ Republicans as party’s infighting worsens
Donald Trump on Tuesday unleashed harsh criticism against Republican leaders who have abandoned him over a 2005 video in which he made lewd comments about women. In reference to House Speaker Paul Ryan, who said he would no longer actively support Trump, the GOP presidential nominee slammed congressional Republicans’ “very weak” and “ineffective” leadership. Trump also derided Sen. John McCain, saying the Arizona senator is “very foul-mouthed” but “dropped me over locker room remarks!” Trump hinted at open conflict in the GOP, saying with “disloyal” Republicans leaving him, “It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to.”

  1. I suppose that since he doesn’t believe he’s going to win, that he doesn’t want other Republicans to win, and that is why he told his supporters the wrong date to vote. What a sleaze.

    Also this week of October 5-12 2016.A 18 yr old white male Trenton Forster in St Louis ,Missouri killed a cop. Killed him at point blank range immediately upon seeing this officer Forster killed him. Forster was wounded but taken alive.Black Missouri resident Mike Brown killed.
    26 year old Hispanic male John Hernandez Felix in Palm Springs ,California shoots 3 cops killing 2 of them. Felix was according to reports a gangbanger .Felix according to reports has a long criminal history. Felix according to reports bought a gun with the sole purpose of killing cops. Felix given 12 hours by cops to surrender. Which he eventually did. Black unarmed California resident Alfred Olongo shot and killed immediately for having a vape device in his hand.

    Several points.
    1. The usual silence on the deaths of the LEOs from Sheriff Clarke, Ret Inv Harry Houck,Rudy Giuliani.
    2. No speech from Giuliani telling these communities(White and Hispanic) telling parents to teach your children to respect police.
    3. The usual pro police sites were outraged until they found out these cop killers weren’t Black.
    4. Multiple cops being shot and killed didn’t garner massive tv coverage. This was done in the Michigan courthouse shooting.
    5. I’ve said the War on Cops is anti black racist propaganda. I’ve seen this and many more examples of cops being killed by white and hispanic people,but the massive outrage is saved solely for black people,BLM,President Obama,Beyonce Knowles,etc.
    6. It’s not just conservative sites. You can go to yahoo,abcnews.go,cbsnews,nbc news eyc and see the same racial double standards on this subject.
    7. I’ve also said this racial double standard cheapens the life of the officers that were murdered.

    • Chuquest,
      Thanks so much for your comment. You hit the proverbial nail on the head.

      Re:

      “I’ve also said this racial double standard cheapens the life of the officers that were murdered.”

      Absolutely! Oh — didn’t you know that no one’s life is important to bigots unless it’s taken by a Black person? There’s no crime or mass murder that is important unless the perpetrators are Black. Racial bigots have chosen their enemy and it’s skin color; not individuals or guns or crime.

      The double standard is awful.

      Like

    • No, i havent heard a peep about the cop killed in MO. It’s amazing the cops managed to arrest the killer alive, werent they in fear for their lives when they saw an armed white teenager who’d aready killed one of their brothers in blue?

      I saw this this morning and it really upset me. again.
      I’ll never forgive Wilson or his enablers. I’ll never understand how a country can let what happened to Mike Brown go unpunished. I don’t repect a country that can sit back and do nothing to help all the people who were first traumatized by being forced to witness what happened to Mike Brown. And secondly, allow the police to intimidate & threaten the innocent witnesses by sending a SWAT team armed with shotguns & dogs.
      Had anything like that happened in a civilized country, everyone involved in Mike Brown’s murder & coverup would be in prison & if they were ever released, they’d be sued for the cost of therapy & social services for the emotional distress they caused an entire neighborhood.

  3. Did you hear about the woman who at a Pence Rally said, “If Hillary wins. There should be a revolution.” Pence said, “No, don’t do that.” I’m worried morons like this will do something….

    This is not a presidential race. This is an episode of L&O SVU.
