Trumpsters lose it after Chief Justice John Roberts smacks down the president’s partisanship

Published

on

Right-wingers are melting down on Twitter over the Bush-appointed chief justice of the Supreme Court rebuking Donald Trump’s partisanship.

Earlier in the day, Chief Justice John Roberts slammed Trump for smearing a federal judge from the 9th Circuit as an “Obama judge.”

“We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” Roberts said in a rare statement. “What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.”

“That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for,” the chief justice added.

While some lauded the conservative justice for the unusual move, right-wingers weren’t so happy.

“THANKS ROBERTS – NEXT THING YOU KNOW, YOU’LL BE REWRITING OBAMACARE TO MAKE IT LEGAL,” radio host Bill Mitchell, a pundit who recently mused whether “antifa” had anything to do with the California wildfires, wrote on Twitter.

Right-wing podcaster Chuck Woolery also used all caps and a Breitbart link to spell out his displeasure at Roberts’ move.

“OH, AND THANK YOU FOR OBAMACARE,” Woolery tweeted.

‘Fire and fury is upon us’: Columnist explains why attack on Saudi oilfield brings us closer to war

Published

On Monday, Saudi oil facilities were hit with a drone strike that U.S. intelligence is claiming originated with Iran.

If this is true, it would be one of many instances in recent months of escalation of tension between Iran and U.S.-allied countries. But as Christopher Dickey warned in The Daily Beast, this event could bring America closer to war than it has yet been.

"Ever since Donald Trump became America’s commander in chief and started creating diplomatic crises around the world, the question has loomed: how will he react if he faces a violent challenge that appears to demand a military response?" said Dickey. "Well, that’s happening right now. The attacks on Saudi Arabia early Saturday morning, cutting its oil production in half, have us on the brink of a huge new Middle East conflict, a massive surge in oil prices, and a global recession."

‘Saudi Arabia pays cash’: Trump admits ‘unlike other presidents’ he’ll be renting out US troops for military action

Published

on

President Donald Trump has been banging the drums of war in recent days, pointing the finger at Iran for a massive drone attack on Saudi Arabia oil fields that caused the price of oil worldwide to spike.

But on Sunday, President Trump admitted – even bragged – that U.S military forces are “locked and loaded.”. Trump also made clear he would be more than happy to order a strike on whatever country the Saudis tell him to hit.

That’s not how the U.S. Military has ever been used. They are not soldiers of fortune, they are not mercenary forces.

We, Trump said, “are waiting to hear from the Kingdom [of Saudi Arabia] as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!”

Published

on

The American media world—both social media and “news” media—is afire with the news that actor Felicity Huffman is going to jail for spending $15,000 to bribe her daughter’s way into college.

But a much bigger bribery scandal is played out every day in America with nary a peep from the media. It’s the way billionaires and big corporations buy not just college admissions but tax cuts, deregulation, and hundreds of billions in government subsidies paid for with our taxes.
