2018 US Midterm Elections

Barbadians have a strong interest in what unravels in the United States. We may debate why this is the case- an abundance of US news feeds streaming into our homes via FLOW, DIGICEL and Internet devices 24b hours a day, family members living in the USA, we travel there to further our studies and on recreation the list is long.

The BU household also has a keen interest in the outcome of the midterms later tonight, it will be a referendum on Trump’s tenure for sure.

    Trump got elected because the American people was sick and tired of what was going on in Washington … bottom-line … and what you fail to understand is the fact that a lot of the people who voted for Trump are now sorry they did …

    And lastly, how could you in good conscience say that a lot of the criticism that is now directed at Trump is underserving … when Trump’s behaviour is unacceptable for someone who holds such an important position in the world…

    re. your 3:27 pm post about GP.
    You are spot on!
    I can understand when John and Lawson post articles that betray innate racist tendencies. They can’t help it.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    If to be labelled a racist all that is required is to disagree with PLT and his lot, then I guess alot of people must be a racists!!

  5. Id Jeanine Pirro’s husband still in prison for fraud, tax evasion, corruption.

    …. she herself nearly got snared with then NYC police commissioner …..”Bernard B. Kerik, a former New York police commissioner who rose to national prominence, was sentenced to four years in prison on Thursday after pleading guilty to eight felony charges, including tax fraud and lying to White House officials.Feb 18, 2010″

    Jeanine Pirro is a fraud with no credibility…no one who knows her well in NYC listens to the crap she spouts..


  6. Wait, where is @Lawson the first responder…where is @Doc…I see @John here but not a fella hasn’t lambasted that wimp Obama for running from rain drops thus dismissing the Paris ceremony commemorating war veterans …

    OMG, where are the snarky remarks! 🀣🀣

    Oh…that’s right it was Mr Coiffed hair not BHO who couldn’t have a wet bald look on TV and blew off this respectful tribute …what a fella!

    But seriously tho, the POTUS helicopter cannot fly in that type of weather in unprotected areas for fear of any shoulder mounted missiles breaking the defenses due to weather inteference…at those low altitudes a few seconds could be death defying! (And that I borrowed from my last thriller novel so it’s all BLARNEY make believe. The trip was less than an hour by motorcade).

    BTW, anyone see the pics of a certain former president braving previous torrential downpours to attend such events πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

    The Teflon Don at his embarrasing gaffe fueled best…he is a boss. Oh Lordie.


  7. INTERESTING… SOUNDS ALL TOO FAMILIAR!!

    In 1963, U.S. Rep. A.S. Herlong Jr., D-Fla., read into the Congressional Record a list of “Current Communist Goals” as enumerated by Dr. Cleon Skousen in “The Naked Communist,” penned in 1958. I encourage you to read the whole list, but for now let’s focus on those goals that most closely align with the seditious agenda of America’s “progressive” movement.

    How far has fallen the party of the jackass:

    -Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    -Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum.

    -Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
    Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

    -Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

    -Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. (An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”)

    -Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

    -Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    -Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

    -Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

    -Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principal of “separation of church and state.”

    -Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    -Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

    -Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.”

    -Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    -Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

    -Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    -Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

    -Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

    -Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    -Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.

    -Do away with loyalty oaths.

    -If achieving these specific communist goals was the final “progressive” step toward the larger goal of securing communist governance in America, then, tragically, “progressives” have realized that larger goal.

    Look around. We are no longer the United States of America. We have become The Communist States of America.
    Which means, for those who love liberty, revolution is once again at hand.

  8. Miller is right. The white man did use the Bible and Christianity to subdue black people. It worked very well even with the Barbados scholars.
