The Barbarians Among Us * Open Thread *

by

 

The Image below is not the face of the barbarians we have among us. It’s Hollywood’s idea of a barbarian. Images like one below are fantasies from film and comics of sexy muscular men and sexy curvaceous women all decked out in Hollywood’s idea of barbarian attire. In other words, total nonsense.

The image below is not the face of the barbarians among us…

This is…

And this is…

And this is…

Notice to BLM and the Black Panthers :

All this horror would be bad enough, frightening enough and evil enough to concern and frighten every decent citizen of the United States were we not burdened with Obama as POTUS. We have a president of the United States who is siding with the barbarians. A man who encourages the violence and excuses those who kill police officers. A man who will never be a part of the solution because he is a major part of the problem.

This horror, these deaths would be frightening enough and evil enough to concern and frighten every decent citizen of the United States were we not burdened with a media that encourages and excuses those who commit the violence. A friend told me that liberals are just wired that way. Seriously? Wired to believe that anarchy is just dandy? That murder is a solution? Then someone needs to rewire them. Soon.

We have watched in the 7+ years of Obama’s Reign of Terror as many of the things that American’s have always taken for granted have been gutted, destroyed, cast aside and cast asunder. He is a Destroyer with a nice crease in his pants. He is a barbarian pretending to be a civilized man. He is an enemy of this country and the people who reside within it’s borders.

Oath of Office for President of the United States:

US Constitution, Article II, Section 1

Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath of affirmation:

“I do solemnly swear, (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

He doesn’t seek to protect the people of this country as he has sworn to do.  He makes no attempt to honor the oath he took to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. He is a destroyer of all the things we hold dear. He is an oath-breaker and a liar. Does that matter to the public anymore ? Is honor truly dead?

Obama cares nothing for the people of this country or the country itself. He communicates that when he favors the invasion of illegals on our southern border and then allows, no allow is too mild a term, encourages un-vetted Syrian immigrants being brought in. Anyone with a functioning brain knows there are sure to be terrorists amongst them. A leader, a man who loved his country would never do such a thing.

Add the treasonous media to the those who would help Obama destroy this country. They are as guilty of every death, every bit of violence and every terror as he is. They encourage, excuse and delight in the evil that stalks our land.

I thought that some of the people that warned of this in the past were way over the top. I thought they saw malevolence where there was simply incompetence. I thought they saw evil where there was none. I was wrong.

There is an evil man sitting in the White House. He hates this country. He is doing his best to destroy it. And he’s succeeding beyond his own expectations. I doubt he ever thought that the media would go along with him once the bodies started falling and the blood was flowing in the streets. I doubt he thought he could accomplish as much as he has in only 8 years. The media and the left is on a path to destroy America.

I don’t know if there is anything to stop them. Certainly not the Republicans. Am I being hyperbolic? Am I seeing things that aren’t there? Do I see something worse than is happening? I sincerely hope so. I have never in my life wanted so desperately to be wrong.

The Republican Party as an Opposition Party has been dead for years. The people who hoped for a Ted Cruz as some kind of savior now seem to believe that the key to salvation lies in writing in Ted Cruz’s name in November. Being #NeverTrump may feel good but in the end what does it accomplish?

I see chaos and foolishness and evil all around. I have no answers. I don’t even know the right questions. I just know right now I am more afraid for this country than I was back in the 60s when it looked like we would tear ourselves apart. Now I think we may well succeed in that. God Help Us All because I think that we have lost the ability to help ourselves.

    Divider-in-Chief calls for ‘unity’ in wake of Baton Rouge police shootings

    toddstarnes ✔ @toddstarnes

    Obama: “We don’t need inflammatory rhetoric.” Get a mirror, Mr. President.

    https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2016/07/divider-in-chief-calls-for-unity-in-wake-of-baton-rouge-police-shootings

    If he had made this speech years ago I might have listened. Now, when he sees he’s succeeded beyond his expectations in dividing us and might just, for his legacy donchaknow, need to ratchet things bad a tad, it’s way too little and way too late. There is nothing this POS has to say that I’m interested in hearing.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      No kidding!! I think Obama just wanted to be first in line to make snap judgments and a rush to add incendiary comments, hence his lecturing US not to do so.

      He is deplorable. Just deplorable.

      GREAT post, Marge. I am angry as hell, too. Just sick to death of what Obama and the Dems have done to this country.

          LOL – I am glad to hear it. It was a righteous rant, my friend. I am just sick of what is going on in this country, and the demise of race relations under Obama. A black friend of mine said today on Facebook that he has made it worse than it was even in the ’60’s (and she is old enough to have experienced that).

          He has confirmed all of our fears abt what he would do to this country, sad, and angry, to say…

    Obama’s position with the perpetrators in Cuba was a warning that he would side with perpetrators of such atrocities in America. Here too he sides with the killers and not the victims. It’s simply in his nature.

    Seems that Trump lied abt how he got out of his financial mess in the ’90’s – shocking, I know. This is important because many of Trump’s supporters claim his business acumen is what they admire. Except that he doesn’t really have it: http://www.newsweek.com/bankers-dispute-trump-account-financial-comeback-481210?rx=us

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      So much of Trump is phony. They seem to have fallen for the character on his reality show The Apprentice. And it seems nothing will change their minds. Or what passes for their minds. If someone can’t see what a piece of trash Trump is by now there is no hope for them.

      Cleveland Is The End Of The GOP As We Know It

      The Republican leaders who show up to the convention and climb aboard the Trump train will be purged from whatever comes after the GOP.

      Convention attendees will at least be treated to remarks by national luminaries such as Scott Baio, noted star of hit television sitcoms “Happy Days” and “Charles in Charge,” soap opera star Antonio Sabàto Jr. (“The Bold and the Beautiful” and “General Hospital”), and Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I think that’s a great idea. Money talks! Lack of it talks louder.

      And the police should think twice about providing protection to these special snowflakes. They need to risk their lives daily – why do it for those who don’t want it and certainly don’t deserve it.

    Editor’s note: Baltimore Police Lt. Brian Rice was the most senior-ranking officer of six charged in the death of Freddie Gray. Rice, who chose to have a bench trial, was acquitted by the presiding judge of charges of involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. His is the third case to end in acquittals; the trial of William Porter ended in a mistrial when a jury failed to come to an unanimous verdict. Still to face the courtroom are Alicia White and Garrett Miller. – Tricia

    Yet another Baltimore police officer has been acquitted of the ludicrous charges filed by Marilyn Mosby who took the politicization of the Law to a whole new low when she went with Mob Rule: http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/18/us/freddie-gray-trial-brian-rice-verdict/index.html

    She should be fired. And I hope these police officers sue the BEJEEZUS out her.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      She’s so bad that there in Baltimore she will probably be promoted. She should be sued. She has caused a major disruption in the lives of these officers, cost her state millions of dollars in charges filed for political intent and then couldn’t even seal the deal. She’s not only malicious and dishonest, she’s not very good at it.

    Welcome to Cleveland, Enjoy The Wake

    The party of Lincoln comes to Cleveland this week to die.

    By Ben Domenech

    Cleveland is a city with the scent of Swisher Sweets and shame. It is the second poorest city in the United States – one in three Cleveland residents lives in poverty, and the growing number of squatters on the east side of the city is a topic of significant conversation.

    So it is a suitable place for Donald Trump to bring his message of restored American greatness – one that blames the problems of white Midwestern America on the convenient targets of foreign immigration (a mere 3 percent of Ohioans are Hispanic, half of whom are Mexican) and bad trade deals (international trade accounts for 1.5 million jobs in Ohio).

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Actually this behavior, right out in the open, with the chair leaving the stage and leaving it empty for I don’t know how long is unprecedented.

      Whole delegations have walked off the floor.They are killing the GOP.

      People on the right who might have been girding themselves to vote for Trump because of their loathing of Hillary see nothing here that makes him or the GOP better than her.

      What an absolute disaster for the Republican Party.

      • piper Says:

        I hope they like the price they’re going to pay for this behavior and being trump supporters. BTW – have they suddenly found someone(s) to pay for this fiasco called the repub. convention, Understand that there was 6 million dollars in unpaid bills.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      I am so disgusted by this, I just don’t know what to say. I was hoping for a miracle, but between the Trump thugs and the Party elites, the voices of those who wanted Reps to choose their nominee and not Democrats was completely shut down. From The Hill article above: “I have never seen anything like this,” said Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), a close ally of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a rival to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

      “There is no precedent for this,” Lee said.

      Welcome to the Trump Party.

    CHAOS: Republican Convention Shatters As Trump Lackeys Steamroll Rules Vote

    By Ben Shapiro

    The Republican National Convention – the establishment insiders of the establishment – steamrolled #NeverTrump delegates hoping to force Republican delegates to affirmatively vote in favor of binding themselves to Donald Trump.

    Under the rules of the convention, a majority of seven delegations could force a roll vote on the rules; it would then take a majority of the delegates to toss the rules committee’s book. At least 11 states signed on: Colorado, Washington, Utah, Minnesota, Wyoming, Maine, Iowa, Virginia, Alaska, North Dakota, and Washington D.C.

    So the secretary of the convention hid behind a curtain to avoid having to accept the signatures.

        I think we are seeing the death throes of the Republican Party as we knew it.

        Many Conservatives will never go back. Many of the younger and brighter conservatives, Daniel Horowitz, Ben Shapiro and others are talking about a new party.

        I don’t think Trump will win but Hillary is such a bad candidate and I suspect all the information on her isn’t out yet so who the heck knows. Neither is worth my vote and I’m beginning to wonder if any Republican is. I know darn well no Democrat is.

        So if the Conservatives are going to form a new party now would be a good time to do it. It’s going to take a long time before it’s viable so the sooner started the better.

Larry Johnson went from being a Hillary supporter to a decadent and creepy Trump supporter.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        The thing that outraged me that ultimately drove me to leave was back then he was still pretending he wasn’t a Trump supporter when damn near every post was about Trump. I called him a liar today and that really burned him up.

    Since I washed my hair this morning, I will wash floors this evening, so much nicer to mop than listen to a bunch of uuuuuughs.

    On Facebook, Paul Ryan or one of his staffers are posting at least 1 thread per hour emphasizing the wonders of repub. party – sorry Paulie I’m a bad sport and am running away with my vote,

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

  28. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Mark Levin makes clear what the real deal was in terms of the Rules vote today – Reince Priebus and his power. Apparently, a big motivator for the grassroots was power taken from the delegates in 2012. Priebus wasn’t going to have that:

    http://therightscoop.com/mark-levin-slams-reince-priebus-for-trying-to-retain-unprecedented-power-as-rnc-chairman

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I have been rather disappointed in Levin’s refusal to condemn Trump and the RNC. Or Hannity for that matter. Too many friends of his are part of the whole Trump problem.

      But this whole “rules” thing is right up Levin’s alley and I can’t see him allowing that to stand.

  29. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    As I am sure people are hearing this morning, it seems Melania Trump plagiarized a speech by MICHELLE OBAMA (told you they were Democrats). Whether she did or didn’t, some of the Tweets coming out of “Famous Quotes By Melania Trump” literally had me laughing out loud, something I really needed after seeing the RNC morph into the DNC once and for all after yesterday’s rule-breaking rules vote. Check them out: http://www.krmg.com/news/news/national/famousmelaniatrumpquotes-explodes-on-twitter/nrz8B/

    I am sure you can find more, too. Thank heavens for humor…

    this year more than ever I am glad I am an independent voter. It seems both parties forgot what their purposes are. To hear the voices of the all the people in this country, not just the ones they want to hear. Both parties should wear badges of shame

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I didn’t watch any of it either. Just bits and pieces I caught on-line. Watching a toilet getting fixed sounds much better.

      Instead I re-watched two episode of Marvel’s Agents of Shield on my Amazon Prime and read part of my latest Mercedes Lackey book. Much easier on the stomach and blood pressure.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2016/07/rnc-2016-donald-trump-fox-news-bill-oreilly-225764

    As Pat Smith, the mother of one of the Americans killed in Benghazi tearfully addressed the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump phoned into Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and bashed John Kasich for not showing up to the confab.
    In an extraordinary moment of counterprogramming, Trump shifted some of the spotlight back to himself, even as a string of speakers in Cleveland spoke optimistically about an America being led by the presumptive Republican nominee.
