Get Angry, and Get Involved
The midterm elections are the smart way to make your influence felt.
By David Leonhardt

If youre not angry yet, you should be.
Lets review: Decades ago, a businessman built a fortune thanks in large measure to financial fraud. His corrupt gains helped him become famous. He then launched a political career by repeatedly telling a racist lie, about the first black president secretly being an African.
This lie created an audience in right-wing media that made possible a presidential campaign. During that campaign, the candidate eagerly accepted indeed, publicly sought the illegal assistance of a foreign enemy. When national security officials raised alarm with Congress, before Election Day, leaders of the candidates party refused to act.
The foreign assistance appears to have been crucial to the candidates narrow victory. He won with only 46.1 percent of the popular vote, less than 16 losing candidates over the years had, including Mitt Romney, John Kerry, Williams Jennings Bryan and the little-remembered Horatio Seymour.
Having won, the new president filled a Supreme Court seat that his party had stolen with an unprecedented power grab. This weekend, the president finished filling a second seat, through a brutal, partisan process. During it, the president, himself an admitted sexual molester, mocked victims of abuse.
Together, the two new justices have cemented an extremist Republican majority on the Supreme Court. It has already begun acting as a kind of super-legislature, throwing out laws on voting rights, worker rights, consumer rights and political influence buying. Now, the court is poised to do much more to benefit the wealthy and powerful at the expense of most Americans and the planet.

The Commie coup coup call continues
If they have to be told to get angry, they’re just going to get back to inhaling their doobies. “Yeah, man, whatever.”
His books, casinos/hotels/resorts, and tv show as well as movie appearances made him famous.
One he either made up or someone at the Slimes who made it up
Another display of INSANITY

Right Wing media?
We have talk radio and that is it.
Faux has gone full PMSNBC to keep the Globalists happy.
So many lies... so little time...
I think it would be very wise if President Trump did use his office to find out exactly who Obama is, and where he was actually born. After all, until he ran for president he claimed he was born in Kenya; however, Jerome Corsi who did a great deal of research into Obama’s life, believes he was actually born in Canada. After this election, if it yields strong majorities in both houses, I don’t see any reason why this should not be done. The govt will be strong, there will not be any constitutional crisis.
Sometimes the best professional help, the best pharmaceuticals, the best theological intervention can't help. After all reasonable things have been tried, it's going to be necessary to lock some of them up, and even put some of them down.
I suggest instead of getting “angry” the Left try being sane.
typical radical Liberal who doesn't get their way.
There’s actual brain damage . . to be that angry, when one is that WRONG
They need to leave or off themselves.
