Reichsfuhrer Trump Lays Out The Neo- Nazi Policy on Racial Purity

I can't even watch the rest. I ran to the keyboard man!
Orwell was right
Orwell was right
So here I sit as the Moon enters Scorpio this Thursday at High Noon- watching the Trumpazoid deliver a speech on the White House lawn outlining his "new immigration plan". You can forget that tired old world/old school motto "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free- the WRETCHED REFUSE OF YOUR TEEMING SHORE" Inscribed in stone at the feet of Lady Liberty, "Beacon of the Free World". The Fuhrer will soon have construction crews change those inscriptions to something like "Give me your wired, your rich, your privileged asses yearning to be even richer- the WHITEST and BRIGHTEST OF YOUR SHIT HOLE SHORE". He's spitting out the most racist shit I've ever heard a President of the United States say outside of the Nixon Tapes. If you want to be a part of the good old USA you had better have a good education and a job and not be some kind of "WRETCHED REFUSE" that the Orange Beast has been demonizing and imprisoning now for years. He's hinted at his tue feelings and beliefs about this before when he mumbled something about "why can't we have more immigrants from NORWAY?" Maybe he's been reading Goebbels and Himmler and thinks the perfect Aryan type is the MASTER RACE and that America's "culture, history, and heritage" must be thrust upon whoever dares to assume they're citizen material. He actually said this this morning. Emphasizing "American Culture, History and Heritage" is pretty obvious shorthand for an out of control Nationalism that is out to impose it's twisted will upon all that refuse to bend over and smile at this Storm Trooper mentality flexing it's Federal muscles. He's wagging the dog with Iran and Immigration just to change these headlines about Impeachment. Like a cornered rat. Combine this latest speech with yesterday's crazed abortion decision in Alabama and it's not hard to see that we really do have a serious problem as far as a possible Police State overriding any sort of governmental oversight ever again. Trump is making Democrats look weak and indecisive and all talk. All those candidates!! Looks like a lot of division to the average voter. Fascism, when it rears it's "Friendly Face", still insists beneath the quips and the smiles that evil is really goodness and that goodness is weakness and ignorance. Trump's speech today reached a level of evil and horror that should infuriate any American with an ounce of justice in them. Trump may as well be leading that Charlottesville group of wanna-be Brown Shirts with this repulsive display of pure hatred and racial contempt RIGHT THERE ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN.

He's No More NAZI Than Hillary Clinton 17.May.2019 22:51


You really think there's a dime's worth of difference?

Obviously NOT!

Fuck Your Whataboutism 17.May.2019 23:14


She's crooked as Hell, but What the fuck does Hillary Clinton have to do with anything? Eat shit, Trump-voter! KYL!

Only Idiots Hate Trump 17.May.2019 23:32


It really requires transcendental stupidity to hate Trump.

You are merely playing THEIR game.

Pretty soon you will probably be rooting for the 'ranked choice voting' giant social fraud ("RCV"/"IRV").

Because you will get sucked into yet another CIA psy-op. The 'Orange Man Bad' psy-op is just one more trap they have placed in your path.

They are laughing at you at Headquarters, so stop making a fool of yourself.

yeah, the TDS is pretty amazing (though rAT is king of it) 18.May.2019 01:17


= Trump Derangement Syndrome

anyway rAT has demonstrated that he believes Trump is an alien shapeshifter child molester so...

but if you "hate Trump" so much why don't you just impeach him? Then you get President Pence.

( yeah all of this has been hashed out ad nauseum on previous newswire rAT-droppings )

Trump: Iraq Invasion "Worst Decision In The History Of Our Country" West Columbia, SC 6/25



From Trump rally at Airport High School gymnasium in West Columbia, South Carolina on June 25th 2018.

Note his remark:
"But count the lives [lost] on both sides. Millions of lives. You don't hear that — millions of lives."

starts around 53:00 into speech —

"... We have seven trillion dollars invested in the Middle East — what do we have? What do we have? Other than death, and destruction — what do we have? What a decision that was, to go in. I believe it was the worst decision in the history of our country; and the way we got out was horrible, if you look at Iraq. The way we got out was horrible. Truly one of the worst decisions ever made in this country. Were it for seven trillion dollars and thousands of lives — but count the lives on both sides, folks. Millions of lives, in my opinion. Millions. You don't hear that — millions of lives."

[Trump:] "What? You Think We're So Innocent?"
author: Paul Atwood

In response to media questions about his failure to address the dismal human rights record of North Korea Trump in his inimitable manner said "What, you think we're so innocent?"

Trump is the first president of whom I am aware even to broach the unmentionable much less admit publicly that we are hardly exceptional.


Trump Calls Out 'Corporate Media' West Palm Beach, Florida Live Speech 10/13/2016


from Trump/Pence rally at South Florida Fair Expo Center in West Palm Beach, Florida on October 13th 2016.

starts around 9:00 into speech —

"... the most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media — 'the press'. Let's be clear on one thing: the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism. They're a political special interest, no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity, with a total political agenda; and the agenda is not for you [points to audience], it's for themselves.

When has a Republican presidential candidate _ever_ called out or otherwise criticized corporate mass media, for any purpose or reason?


Donald Trump's Unique Human Decency On Iraq
author: John V. Walsh

From a humanitarian standpoint, the content of Trump's condemnation of the war is outstanding. In fact, to grieve over the lives of Americans but not the people of Iraq is a form of racism. Trump is virtually unique among major politicians in taking this stand on the lives of innocents the US has attacked. He should be praised for it.

As election day approaches, it is time to ignore the noise of the moment and think clearly about the crucial issues facing us, none of which is more important than war or peace. The War on Iraq has been a touchstone for these issues over the last 14 years.

On Iraq, Clinton and her operatives have sought to avoid at all costs an accurate comparison of her position over the last 14 years to Trump's. "What did Trump say?" has been buried by the Clintonites and company. "When did he say it?" has been slyly substituted for it. The time line has been used to equate the positions of Hillary the most notorious of hawks with that of Trump.

Let us have a look at Trump's words as well as the dates they were uttered. And compare them to Hillary's:


Trump Montana Speech: CNN 'Editor-at-Large' Claims To Be "Free And Independent" Media

President Trump was at the Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls, Montana on July 5, 2018 for a rally and speech. In response CNN's 'Editor-at-Large' Chris Cillizza posted an article  http://www.cnn.com/2018/07/06/politics/donald-trump-montana-speech/index.html titled :
'The 11 most dangerous things Donald Trump said in his Montana speech'.

Cillizza claims that the speech "contained a number of genuinely dangerous lines," which "no president before Trump would even considering [sic] uttering among a small group of friends".

Number 6 of Cillizza's 11 points claims that Trump's "impugning" of [corporate media's use of] "unnamed sources is part of a broader attempt on his part to undermine a free and independent media." The multibillion-dollar corporate media 'Editor-at-Large' also rhetorically asks: "Have you ever seen what life is like for the citizenry in a country in which the media is state-run?"

Donald Trump is no stranger to clashing with U.S. corporate mass media, who had a big role in supporting his opponent (in league with the rest of the political establishment of his own GOP and the Democratic Party) during the 2016 presidential campaign. On October 13th, 2016 at a rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, Trump called out the U.S. corporate mass media by name :

"... the most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media — 'the press'. Let's be clear on one thing: the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism. They're a political special interest, no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity, with a total political agenda; and the agenda is not for you [points to audience], it's for themselves.
Cizilla is obviously a liar with no basis in fact for his claims. Zero evidence exists that Trump has ever attempted to "undermine free and independent media," and moreover (if Cizilla was attempting to imply CNN as the entity that was somehow "undermined") the multibillion-dollar Time Warner subsidiary for which he works is the furthest possible from being "free and independent."

There are many other total falsehoods, logical fallacies and shallow, irrelevant remarks in corporate mass media employee Cillizza's editorial rant, most of which reads like a 'hurt feelings report'.

Trump's own rhetoric and topics covered are no different in tone or scope than what he's been saying in his largely SamIzDat campaign speeches from 2016; in fact compared to some of the October 2016 speeches such as the West Palm Beach  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/10/433420.shtml one <--- quoted ^^, during that specific time late in the campaign when the real possibility of losing to Clinton existed — amongst an avalanche of U.S. corporate mass media predictions of "80% landslide" and assured Clinton victory — and was anxiously reflected in Trump's comments and rhetoric, last night's Montana speech was tame and calm (perhaps even nuanced) in comparison.

In total, Chris Cillizza is pimping the same shopworn banner that he and other U.S. corporate mass media pundits have since the emergence of Trump and particularly since mid-2016, when it became apparent that he could actually win the GOP nomination (which the Republican National Committee with millions of dollars in support from top elites including private corporate donors and Democrats had attempted to sabotage and prevent). The October 2016 remarks by Trump in Florida are evidence of this longstanding feud, in addition to direct threats against the incoming president the following January by CNN President Jeff Zucker :


Glenn Greenwald points out that Barack Obama was actually more pro-Russia than Trump: "you look at President Obama versus President Trump, there's no question that President Obama was more cooperative with and collaborative with Russia and the Russian agenda than President Trump. President Trump has sent lethal arms to Ukraine—a crucial issue for Putin—which President Obama refused to do. President Trump has bombed the Assad forces in Syria, a client state of Putin, something that Obama refused to do because he didn't want to provoke Putin. Trump has expelled more Russian diplomats and sanctioned more Russian oligarchs than [Obama] has. Trump undid the Iran deal, which Russia favored, while Obama worked with Russia in order to do the Iran deal."

U.S. Corporate Mass Media Editorial Denounciation Of Trump 'Attacks' Via 350 News Outlets

Spearheaded and organized by the Boston Globe, on Thursday 16 August 2018 corporate-owned newspapers across the United States are today publishing coordinated editorials which defend "freedom of the press" and push back against Donald Trump's "attacks" on the U.S. media which doesn't take kindly to being called 'fake news'.

The Boston Globe is owned & published by investment management CEO John W. Henry (who also owns the Boston Red Sox), and the newspaper is part of the New England Media Group which was founded by Andrew Clure, a marketing and advertising entrepreneur whose multimillion-dollar clients include Lego, Dr Pepper, Mattel, Sega, Pitney Bowes, Chase, Merck [pharmaceuticals] and Burger King; up until 2013 NEMG was wholly owned by The New York Times Company.

The Boston Globe has accused Trump of running a "dirty war against the free press."

Trump is no stranger to controversy and clashing with U.S. corporate mass media, having been openly assailed in U.S. media sources ever since first announcing his candidacy for president in 2015 (and previously having been long a controversial media figure in his own business and corporate-media television program 'The Apprentice').

Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, the U.S. corporate mass media steadfastly promoted not only the existing Obama administration presidency but also completely endorsed, and predicted an overwhelming victory for, the favored Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton. Even the mid-2016 controversy over the Democratic National Committee having rigged the Democratic primary elections and delegates to sabotage the Bernie Sanders campaign, along with the attendant firing of DNC head Deb Wasserman Schultz entirely consisted of favorable coverage to Clinton and the DNC at the expense of Sanders due to the U.S. corporate mass media's being welded-at-the-hip to the Clinton candidacy and it's supposedly 'inevitable' victory over the GOP candidate.

Other substantial bias on the part of U.S. corporate mass media against the Trump campaign, many months prior to even his actual nomination by the GOP as its presidential candidate, include the coverage and editorials by prominent Republicans against Trump himself and their multimillion dollar GOP/RNC efforts to completely destroy Trump's candidacy and campaign prior to the summer 2016 GOP convention.

By the time of September and October 2016 the intensity and total conformity of the U.S. corporate mass media bias against the Trump campaign was supremely obvious. Coverage of Clinton's campaign-trail events, which had been drawing dismal quantities of supporters in numbers of a few dozen or less yet were reported as "filling high school gymnasiums and county fairs" when video evidence showed the exact opposite / barely any attendance, while at the same time Trump events were drawing thousands of supporters and reported by U.S. corporate mass media as 'lackluster', are clear evidence of the delusion and later cognitive dissonance which would follow for millions of observers when the voting results of November 9th emerged.

Pundit pollsters such as FiveThirtyEight's Nate Silver were consistently predicting 80% or greater victory margins for the Clinton candidacy, and such numbers were widely circulated, discussed and reported by U.S. mass media and election observers-analysts for months after the July 2016 official party nominations. These 'slamdunk' predictions were given continuous and repeated reportage by U.S. corporate mass media and their army of pundits up until the very last hour of vote counting on November 8th.

The last several weeks of the presidential campaign and the U.S. corporate mass media's utterly astounding volume of pro-Hillary propaganda had a visible and measurable effect on candidate Trump which was clearly reflected in his stump speech remarks, tweets and other public statements.

On October 13th, 2016 at a rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, Trump called out the U.S. corporate mass media by name :

"... the most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media — 'the press'. Let's be clear on one thing: the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism. They're a political special interest, no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity, with a total political agenda; and the agenda is not for you [points to audience], it's for themselves.

After Trump's election, in January 2017 CNN's President Jeff Zucker lost no time in firing off an explicit warning to the incoming administration, that it would be a "mistake" to have an "adversarial relationship" with their network :

The frenzy of U.S. corporate mass media and their perceived 'war' with the administration whose chief executive relishes in tossing the 'fake news' barbs in their direction has reached a peak in mid-2018 after a year and a half of Trump in office. In particular, the U.S. corporate mass media has begun playing a "victim" card, and further claim that they are the 'One And True Advocates Of First Amendment Free Speech' in America, portraying themselves as 'tireless soldiers' for free and open expression.

CNN's 'Editor-at-Large' Chris Cillizza posted an article after Trump's July 5, 2018 speech titled 'The 11 most dangerous things Donald Trump said in his Montana speech'.  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2018/07/436377.shtml
and claims that his multibillion-dollar CNN and other corporate-owned U.S. media bretheren are "a free and independent media" which Trump is trying to "undermine".

On July 20, 2018 the U.S. corporate mass media 'We Are Free Speech' self-promotion continued, when CNN journalist Ryan Nobles tweeted (while at a hotel location covering the President) that he was purportedly congratulated by an unidentified individual, who said to Mr. Nobles:
"Thank you for your service, the First Amendment is so important right now."

Not only has U.S. corporate-owned mass media now begun playing a "victim" card (of being "bullied" by Trump's incessant 'fake news' barbs), but is additionally hoisting a banner that clearly promotes themselves as the sole bastion of (what they call) "free speech" in America.

The U.S. corporate mass media further asserts, as exemplified by The Boston Globe's anti-Trump editorial campaign, that they are a "free press".

Barack Obama's Great Tower of Nothing: Gentrification on a Presidential Level

Obama's Imperial Presidency
author: Carl Boggs


One article of faith among liberals and the corporate media is that Trump's presidency stands alone as a house or horrors, unprecedented in its fascistic authoritarianism, crazy pronouncements, and ideological blend of xenophobia, racism, sexism, and sheer extremism. Those in the "resistance" know that pretty much any alternative (Bill Maher, LeBron James) would be far better, though specifics — beyond Trump's mortal sin of partnering with Putin — are rarely mentioned.

Obvious comparisons are Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, and his competitor, Hillary Clinton. Obama was in charge of U.S. foreign policy for the preceding eight years, so his legacy (with plenty of help from Clinton) might be worth considering.

Obama, it turns out, was among the most militaristic White House occupants in American history, taking the imperial presidency to new heights. It has been said that Obama was the only president whose administration was enmeshed in multiple wars from beginning to end. His imperial ventures spanned many countries - Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia along with proxy interventions in Yemen and Pakistan. He ordered nearly 100,000 bombs and missiles delivered against defenseless targets, a total greater than that of the more widely-recognized warmonger George W. Bush's total of 70,000 against five countries. Iraq alone - where U.S. forces were supposed to have been withdrawn - was recipient of 41,000 bombs and missiles along with untold amounts of smaller ordnance. Meanwhile, throughout his presidency Obama conducted hundreds of drone attacks in the Middle East, more than doubling Bush's total, all run jointly (and covertly) by the CIA and Air Force.

Obama: A Legacy of Ashes

Published on Jan 20, 2017

Obama's legacy is measured in ashes. From wars of aggression to a police state on steroids, banking bailouts and Obamacare, Obama has been the perfect captain to carry the New World Order football further down the field. But as Americans prepare for a new liner to be placed in their gilded bird cage, today we remember how the Deep State tricked the public in 2008 by giving them what they thought they wanted.


ok cool 18.May.2019 19:59


another wall of text defending trump. you guys have fallen into lockstep with the gop nicely. if glenn greenwald leaves any dirt on trumps boots you might have a chance to lick it off when hes done

RE: "another wall of text" — Zero attention span? 19.May.2019 02:42


so you prefer, Obama?
Hillary Clinton?
or Mike Pence?

who cares? what's you're 'alternative' apart from:
"Orange Man Bad"


Trump is anti-war. Anti-Iraq invasion and occupation. Has (unlike Clintons or Obama) has — for many years on, including more than 18 months INTO HIS OWN PRESIDENCY — expressed extreme remorse about the **IRAQI** lives lost in the illegal invasion and occupation which was instigated by the United States of Americe (i.e. Trump's home country). Which person that you advocate, has done that publicly? What billionaire, has done such a thing publicly?

RE: "glenn greenwald",
unsure what the specific Disinformational purpose of that Troll-namedrop was but: at least Greenwalds's a legitimate journalist.

RE: "fallen into lockstep with the gop nicely"
Yeah, uh - No.
The GOP was Dead Set Against Trump being the party's nominee for president, spent millions $$$$ in opposition to him during the primaries in particular. Major GOP-ers shilled for and endorsed Hillary's candidacy including e.g. Wall Street bank bailout czar Hank Paulson. Entire Bush family voted Clinton ticket, 2016. Next...

further: Why is the GOP a purported/called-out 'enemy' any more than the Democrats? Are not both parties of the '2-party' system EQUALLY in lockstep with corporate interests?

This is decades-old utterly outdated ideological hegemonizing you've plied us with, here. Get with the times already.

Finally, who is "you guys" (<--- did you just assume my gender, btw? )

you can't help yourself 19.May.2019 16:15


any time trump is criticized you speed to his defense. stop pretending you dont love him. hillary also being bad isnt an excuse dummy

well, _you_ obviously CAN'T help YOURself. 19.May.2019 20:36


where was Trump "criticized",


and for what specifically?

I don't give a flying ***K about Trump AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU OR ANYONE ELSE.

that's the entire problem in a nutshell.

Trump is god***n billionaire. He can and will take care of himself.

White House is merely a passing phase / notch-in-belt, for him. Another feather in his career cap. And it will indeed be merely that after he leaves.

He ran for president just because Obama 'disrespected' him at that fancy dinner back in 2011 (yes if you can point to any single event/cause, THAT was the reason DT ran for Pres. So he could "show" everyone who thought he was a joke).

Trump overcame the entire U.S. corporate media, establishment D.C. and military-industrial-complex / NeoCon political elites, and even his own party's GOP-RNC (who spent millions $$$$ to PREVENT Trump being nominated as candidate), and an opposition (shitty) candidate who outspent him by more than double to become president in 2016.

RE: Hillary, she's no "excuse" for anything including her own pathetic self. Hillary and Bill, are lawyers. Career grifters, career politicians. What have either of them done in the real world, apart from graduate law school (Hillary btw and fwiw, had to take the Bar examination a few times)? Hillary was a **PATHETIC** senator (and, without her husbands name, how would she even have become senator in *NEW YORK* for ***k's sake?! They're from Arkansas, where during the 1980s Bill, as governor of <-- that state, used the Mena airport to facilitate Iran-Contra drug running).

That you are incapable of comprehending ^^^ all the above, and still think that DT is somehow "the same" as any other Republican politician (Hint: Trump is not a politician at all, rather he is a real estate developer / self-made celebrity / billionaire), while still attempting to 'critique' him using outdated political conventions, speaks volumes about your own inadequacy.

anyway, advice here to heed: Give it up with your (pointless waste-of-energy) Trump Derangement Syndrome aka "Orange Man Bad".

This entire (rAT) "Reichsfuhrer Neo- Nazi" topic is Godwin's law from start 19.May.2019 20:41


His headline jumped the shark. All downhill (as per usual for rAT) from there.

(another reminder about 2016 election) He wasn't supposed to win. 19.May.2019 21:03


^ This can not be emphasized enough.

Look at absolutely EVERYTHING which has occurred politically since 9th November 2016.
all can be 100% explained, comprehended and understood in light of it.

Mueller report. "Racism" (from a black man in WH ---> to ____ ). Dossier (<-- which was an 'insurance policy' against whoever, not even just Trump himself, would challenge Hillary Clinton for WH throne).
The news coverage and voting polls during July - 8th November 2016 around 6 pm, which (up until that precise time on that exact day) all said:
"Trump = no chance of winning"
"Hillary by a landslide"
"No way Trump can even show"
"85% victory predicted for Clinton"
Five Thirty-Eight / the 'statistical analysis' of Nate Silver

et cetera.

None of them (the GOP Republicans who supported Clinton, including the Bush family themselves who voted Clinton-ticket 2016, U.S. corporate mass media, "vote analysts" / pollsters, pundit "experts" et al.) ever thought or even considered that Trump actaully could _win_ the election.


Meanwhile corporate dominance of the U.S. government (aka Fascism) continues.

ok champ 20.May.2019 12:20


"I don't give a flying ***K about Trump AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU OR ANYONE ELSE."

we will keep that in mind next time you respond to a post like this with links to 10 other posts defending trump and talking about how obama and hillary were also bad. youre like a walking dictionary definition of whataboutism which explains your love of greenwald

RE: "10 other posts defending trump " — Knock Off the TDS, 20.May.2019 22:23


None of my posts


Trump, champ.

And he lives rent-free in your head for all to see.

p.s. incidentally, rAT (author of this topic thread) is mentally ill.
Go view his 'article' about Trump being an alien shapeshifter molester of immigrant children (which was left on Portland Indymedia for moderators-only-know-what-reason).

"which explains your love of greenwald"

Who, exactly, "hates" Glenn Greenwald and why?

wt F**K does Greenwald have to do with this topic thread (such as it is...) about Trump?

Why did Glenn Greenwald turn your panties in a knot (apparently ?? from a Referenced/linked quote of his, within many other non-Greenwald persons' quotes on the topic of Trump, politics and U.S. corporate mass media, further ^^ up this thread)?

Greenwald = 'trigger' ?

Why, precisely?

Do tell. Us. Please. about your obsession with "greenwald" and why no one must "love" him.


(so, here's a Question) Why all the focus on Trump? 20.May.2019 23:15


Obama didn't seem to bother people too much (here, or elsewhere) when during his 2 terms in office he bombed more brown people than any preceding U.S. president.

What's so bad about Trump? What wars has he started? Which countries has the USAF / U.S. Navy / USMC bombed on his watch, which countries has the U.S. Army (& Spec Forces) militarily occupied/invaded, in comparison to those during 8 Years Of Clinton / 8 Years of Bush / 8 Years of Obama?

another (related & hypothetical) question, answer it please:

Would you prefer that Hillary Clinton (former Secretary of State and understudy of Henry Kissinger) be president right now, late May 2019?
i.e. would you have preferred that HRC had won the 2016 presidential election and thus be current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

AND (corollary), how much better off would all of us be right now, because of the fact that she won the 2016 election?

Please, expound. Provide us with your wise counsel.

heres a better question 21.May.2019 13:33


why are you so dead set on swooping into every post that is critical of trump and saying 'oh wait! obama and hilary were also bad!"

btw the supreme court is being stacked with lifetime conservatives and roe v wade is being set up to vanish under the rule of this bigoted peice of garbage, but by all means keep telling us how other presidents and candidates were also bad, and keep repeating "trump wasnt supposed to win' as though that has any bearing on anything.

RE: Hillary vs. Trump vs. Obama etc. (and *YOU* didn't answer question) 22.May.2019 00:09


it's simply data for comparison and consideration.

btw the supreme court is being stacked with lifetime conservatives

What else does a president who represents the Republican party do?

also FYI: a couple of justices have happened to die / be in poor health and 'vanish' from the 9-member body of SCOTUS.
Timing is everything, when it comes to nominating for SCOTUS.

( It happens to be one of the reasons, in spite of many right-wingers/Republicans who DID NOT LIKE TRUMP AT ALL FROM THE OUTSET and didn't want to vote for him, went ahead and held their noses and cast it for him in 2016. They knew that if nothing else: at least Trump had a high likelihood of nominating conservatives to SCOTUS seats which would be coming open. )

Obama had EIGHT FULL YEARS to nominate whoever. So did Bill Clinton.

The Supreme Court (particularly after the Citizens United decision and also the nomination of Justices Alito and Roberts each of whom are exceedingly pro-Corporate) has destroyed the United States and its form of government for as long as it continues to exist, in this incarnation.
Never mind the bush-leaguers who are coming up in the Trump-era wings. Fork has long ago been stuck in it.

roe v wade is being set up to vanish , but

But what?

Where's your evidence that the landmark abortion decision will "vanish" at the SCOTUS / U.S. Federal government policy level?

*NEVER* going to happen.

( what will / might continue to happen though is what many conservatives, including Trump who 'tags along' with this school of tactic-thought, recommend at the state level, for state legislatures to 'corrode' the ability of Planned Parenthood and other federally funded methods of birth control to offer their services, restrict the rights of young women on quasi-religious / moral grounds et cetera. "States rights" for all... )

by all means keep telling us how other presidents and candidates were also bad

Biden, is "good", hm?

Hillary Clinton is DOCUMENTED as one of the worst U.S. presidential candidates of all time.
Yet the political / corporate establishment entirely backed her. GOP — Trump's own chosen party — spent millions of dollars to prevent his nomination, and long time card-carrying Republican leaders and luminaries endorsed HRC in 2016. (Entire Bush family voted Clinton ticket 2016.)

They also funded her campaign to the tune of more than double what Trump spent on his. AND the entire U.S. corporate mass media was in the pocket of Clinton campaign, pollsters etc. right up until 6:00 PM on election night (when reality began to sink in about how HORRENDOUSLY AWFUL AND PATHETICALLY INSIGNIFICANT a presidential candidate, Mrs. Clinton actually was).

Who do you think is going to be "good" enough to actually _defeat_ Trump in 2020? Grandpa Bernie?
( Remember, barring a complete collapse/re-figuring of the '2-party' system it must be a Democratic Party candidate... )

"trump wasnt supposed to win"

Yes that's correct.

This is the everything/anything 'about Trump' which you must comprehend. Entire political, industrial, corporate mass media establishment was Dead Set against Trump.

Until you grasp the importance of that idea you'll continue to have mental illness and experience feelings of inadequacy.
But don't listen to me. I know zip, remember?

as though that has any bearing on anything

See immediately ^above.

under the rule of this bigoted peice [sic] of garbage

There's that Trump Derangement Syndrome again.
He doesn't want to invade countries and has repeatedly expressed his regret and sympathy for the (millions of) peoples of Iraq who were slaughtered by U.S. and European/'coalition' troops.
