Revenge of the Haters: A Response to Kellyanne Conway’s Abysmal Defense

On February 3, 2017, while being interviewed on Hardball with Chris Matthews, Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway made reference to the “Bowling Green Massacre” as justification for Trump’s travel ban on seven nations. Conway said:

“I bet, there was very little coverage‍—‌I bet it’s brand new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized‍—‌and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. I mean, most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered.” (Cited from the newly minted Wikipedia page for “Bowling Green Massacre.”)

Update from the Plaintiffs Seeking to Invalidate Election

After doing some more searching, I discovered the blog of two of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, currently on the docket of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), to invalidate the Presidential election. They just posted an update yesterday.

Supreme Court Docket #16-907 Seeks to Invalidate Presidential Election

Note: In order to avoid any misunderstandings, I am not taking a position on this for or against.

I didn’t even know this existed until a few minutes ago, but apparently there is a case on the docket of the U.S. Supreme Court, #16-907, to invalidate the results of the U.S. presidential election due to Russian hacking and calling for a re-election. My knee-jerk reaction is to say that this is a long shot, but it is intriguing.

President Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall on the border with Mexico is facing a major problem: A wall of resistance from his own party.

A growing number of congressional Republicans are objecting to the cost and viability of a proposal that was a rallying cry for the billionaire businessman during his insurgent campaign. Interviews with more than a dozen GOP lawmakers across the ideological spectrum suggest Trump could have a difficult time getting funding for his plan approved by Congress.

Trump Farm

Since his first insane ranting as a candidate I have been trying to ascertain is Trump senile?  Insane? Or crazy like a fox?  It could be that he’s both or that he is crazy and his handlers are like foxes. The point is there is a method, an ulterior purpose behind the ranting. As we peel back the layers of insanity, the underlying purpose looks ever more ugly and dangerous. We are starting to see a true fascism emerging. Take the nonsense allegations of voter fraud, that Hillary’s popular vote only exceeded his because 3 million illegal voted for her. A massive conspiracy theory that requires an absurd level of paper trail that no one, not even Trump’s own lawyers, thinks exists:
