2016-06-23_0706 Donald Trump

Have fallen way behind in keeping this thing updated. Here are the most important headlines of the past week …

2016 ELECTION

The Trump Campaign is virtually broke, facing a massive funding deficit – So much for not being able to be bought. At this point in 2012, Mitt Romney had raised over $76 million, and he still ended up losing. As of the latest count, the supposed billionaire Trump had a mere $1.2 million on hand, compared to the $42 million of Mrs. Clinton. The RNC has $19 million, whereas they had $61 million at this point four years ago. And self-funding his campaign is apparently not an option for Trump, as much of his wealth is tied up in liquid assets that he does not have access to. This is shaping up to be a disaster of epic proportions. In any given race, the candidate with the most money usually wins, and a gap this large is simply insurmountable …

Trump says the U.S. should use profiling as a tool to combat terrorism – Yes, absolutely, we are not going to win this fight by being politically correct. If only it weren’t him who was delivering the message, but I digress …

Trump-supporting Republicans ‘surprised and angered’ that their man calling for more gun control – He basically told the world he was a snake (‘I’m capable of changing to anything I want to change to’) and then they’re shocked when he acts as a snake. Just imagine the shock when – assuming he were to be elected – he doesn’t nominate conservative judges as promised …

U.S. NEWS

AG Lynch says the most effective tool to combat terrorism is ‘love’ – Either this woman has been tripping out listening to naive 1960s-era hippie tripe such as ‘All You Need is Love’ (yes, there were a scant few Beatles songs that sucked, and only that George Harrison Indian track on ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’ sucks harder in their catalog), or she is deliberately and treasonously leading people not to resist a mortal threat to our nation and way of life. Being that Loretta Lynch is not stupid, and likely grew up on R&B and soul music rather than the Beatles (call it a hunch), we will go with the latter …

North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un says his missiles can reach U.S. Pacific territories – Do we dare doubt him, even as there is a good possibility he is bluffing?

CULTURE IN DECLINE

Washington Times – The unpresidential president: Barack Obama’s rant against American ‘attitudes’ was emotional and divisive

Kim Kardashian dares to lecture Americans on gun control – Not content with being omnipresent in the sleazy, tabloid culture that has been made virtually impossible for anyone to avoid now, the so-called ‘reality TV’ star bemoans the Second Amendment, and makes an ass of herself in the process …

Irrefutable proof that Michael Jackson was a demented, criminal pedophile – (Reader discretion is strongly advised before clicking the link.) Pornographic photos of teenage boys and preadolescents were among the illegal filth found during a 2003 raid on the late singer’s ranch. And there’s another disturbing twist here: Images of animals being slaughtered were also discovered. For the love of all that is holy, even Hitler and some of the worst criminals in history were known to treat animals humanely! That this man-child was acquitted speaks to how seriously biased the U.S. criminal justice system is toward the famous … even for a walking freak-show that would almost certainly have been imprisoned (and likely killed by fellow inmates) if he couldn’t sing and dance. Are you still going to worship this man like a god and continue to play his music, America? Sadly, the answer is yes: Celebrities are above the law and common decency in this rotten country, and the sheep and their overlords like it that way …
