The Republicans Are Revolting

The Republicans Are Revolting | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Tsar Nicholas II
There's a joke my college history professor liked to tell about Nicholas II, the last Tsar of Russia. When Nicholas' aide told him, "Sire, the peasants are revolting," he replied, "Yes, aren't they?
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

Immigrant Bashing
The Republicans blame illegal immigrants for America's problems, and Trump shamelessly labeled Hispanics, drug dealers and rapists, followed by, "But I'm sure there are a few who are good people." Now he's insulting Syrian refugees as terrorists, and he wants to bring back waterboarding. Perhaps he should ask John McCain, who he insulted by saying he prefers heroes who weren't captured, whether waterboarding is a smart anti-terror strategy. The Republicans need someone to blame for America's ills so no one focuses on their agenda, which is entirely aimed at the 1 percent. They create fear in the hearts of people who get all their information from Fox News to keep them distracted. But it's the Republican's lamentable lack of agenda that would benefit 99.9 percent of Americans that's to blame. The Republican candidates pledge to give their billionaire donors more tax cuts and to dismantle every government agency. How will that help the 99.9 percent?


The Republicans' political interests are at odds with those of nearly every American, and they hide this by promising the shrinking middle class they'll benefit from it too. They won't. Republican voters who aren't wealthy might want to stop voting against their own economic interests. Supporting billionaires' positions when you're struggling financially is counter-intuitive.The Republicans oppose a $15 an hour minimum wage by falsely claiming that unemployment follows minimum wage hikes. In fact it never has. And demonizing Black, Hispanic, and Middle-Eastern people won't create good paying jobs, but it occupies the Republican base by giving them someone to hate.

Watch: Here's What the Refugee Screening Process Looks Like

Watch: Here's What the Refugee Screening Process Looks Like | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Watch this video to see exactly what a potential refugee goes through to resettle in the U.S.:
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Here is the refugee screening process narrated by those that have to complete it. Do not get suckered by three leading candidates on the Republican side that are screaming the scare number of Obama wants to allow 250,000 Syrians in.....I heard Trump say that myself the other day at a large gathering and thought how could anyone still be supporting a guy that is that willing to tell a BIG flat out lie and I surely think he knows he is playing that huge group and many more that would listen for suckers as they applauded his lie as though it was truth.


Then I read Carson and one other leading guy are saying the same thing but didn't hear them say it myself. Nothing has changed. Obama made a prior commitment to allow 10,000 refugees into the nation.....and has only allowed less than 2,000 during the entire war so far. There is really as much of a chance we already have terrorist we have raised here as there is that their victims will be bringing them here with them and frankly more of a chance we raised them then they will get past this refugee processing.


Canada is accepting 75,000 after refusing the toddler that floated up on the Turkish beach. The next dead refugee toddlers now deserve to be floated into New Jersey the next time God Decides to send Chris Christy a flood, since I guess that is the only way he will accept anyone under 5 years old as I heard him state....Why did anyone (including the Obama administration) send help to the Sandy victims? They made the choice to live in a dangerous area and should have been prepared to pay the price. Right??? Does anyone really believe that??? Really?


There were most likely gang members and other bad people accidently helped out and they may have even been allowed to move to other cities or States since we have no state border controls....Christy could have sent murders and rapist to other states like the Mexican President is "sending" murders here according to Trump. None of those New Jersey,  or Katrina survivors were even vetted at all before another state allowed them to come in. Fastest way to ensure another 9-11 or worse is to buy into the hate, fear that serves the terrorist and war mongers best for recruiting and selling wars. People that buy into this without question to me are far more dangerous than Daesh...They create Daesh (ISIS)..always have and always will ....the fastest way to end the growth of Daesh is to show how rich and right the concepts of  love, acceptance, reasonable tolerance and individual rights are for everyone on this planet and let them shine so bright every global citizen is willing to make a stand for them....Daesh seeks to create the end of the world by getting everyone to hate and distrust each other. If  they can not rule the world their way they feel it is time for God to end it.... It looks like they opposite of their dream might be shaping up...We are talking to Iran as I read so is Saudi Arabia...now they have attacked Russia and it looks like they might have to team up with us and others more...China is powering up about them though I don't think they have been attacked. And I hear Daesh is so willing but limited to look bad they will take credit for spin offs they never knew were coming if they can just to scare everyone more.

Fastest way to ensure another 9-11 or better is to believe lies that create hate, fear and distrust...That works for the terrorist and warmongers really well. Gun sales and exports are at record highs in the last years. The highest they have been in 19 years....See how selling a great lie gets you what you want......remember the lie that Obama wants to take all your guns away....All I hear is many people including him wanted tighter controls for who has guns and background checks.... Republican policy makers and their supporters believe one neighbor just needs to make sure he has a bigger gun than the neighbor he hates and is a better shot..... Great plan for peace and security in the future...turn everyone into gunslingers and sharp shooters and a bigger bully than any one they meet in an alley and see if we can beat Daesh at their own game on their own terms.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

The obvious answer is to avoid all salmon if this is not labeled and heavily fine & shut down the company if their products leaps into the natural DNA and they fail to control the cross breeding of their product. With long prison time for leaders of industry and the government that bring disruption to nature.


We need a new category of national and international crime on equal status with crimes against humanity and that would be crimes against nature. We also need to reinstate the rule that no one can patent life even if it is a microorganism that eats oil and seems harmless.
