‘They rape, kill, destroy:’ Montana Green Party candidate participated in hate-fueled anti-immigrant rally

Published

on

A Montana Green Party candidate is an anti-immigration activist who has referred to former president Obama as a Muslim, reports the Missoulian.

“There’s a right way and they’re doing it in the wrong way, and our black Muslim president is trying to bring this country down. And he’s doing a very good job with all his lapdogs,” Green party candidate John Gibney told a reporter at a 2016 rally.

Gibney, 72, came to the rally with a sign that said “They rape, kill, destroy.”

The newly certified Montana Green Party is also under fire for fielding a candidate who was on the GOP-payroll and runs a bizarre nativist anti-higher education group. When asked whether he was seeking to dilute votes for Democrats, Gibney refused to answer.

“As far as I’m concerned, I’m registered with the Green Party,” he told the paper. “That’s just the way it is. We have open elections, so why not? I’ll see how it goes with them.”

The Montana Green Party chair, Danielle Breck, said that Gibey’s comments about immigrants being rapists and killers, and about Obama being a Muslim, were “somewhat bigoted.”

But, in a Facebook post where she tagged Adams, the former GOP employee running against Democrat Jon Tester for senate, she said that the candidates should be given the benefit of the doubt.

“The Green Party believes in grassroots democracy and the right, make that the responsibility, of every citizen to take part in their governing,” Breck said. “[We will not] jump to the assumption that the are not true Green Party supporters until they have had the opportunity to show us otherwise. We hope you all will do the same.”

Here’s video from the 2016 rally.

President Donald Trump has figured out how to have taxpayers pay to renovate his Trump National Doral Miami golf course, according to an analysis by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office

Published

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report

Published

on

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
