MSNBC’s Pat Buchanan: Gay Marriage “Absurd,” DADT Repeal Advocates “Detested”

Published

on

MSNBC’s long-time political analyst, Pat Buchanan, has released his book, titled, “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?,” and the contents are bone-chilling. While America is all-too-familiar with Buchanan’s deep-seated Christo-centric racism, the depths of his hatred of homosexuality was previously unknown to most.

In the audio clip below, courtesy of Salon, Buchanan calls same-sex marriage equality “absurd,” suggests it is unconstitutional, claims gay marriage is being “imposed dictatorially,” and — while this is subject to interpretation, given his unclear language — Buchanan seems to suggest that the Obama Administration and his military leaders are now “deeply-resented and widely detested” because of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT).

Surely this is enough to get Buchanan, a former Republican presidential candidate, fired?

Remember, the is Pat Buchanan, the man who said in 2008,

“America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.”

Yes, you read that right. No, there’s no room for interpretation.

Here’s the transcript we created from the audio:

In the name of equality, the Supreme Court has declared the practice of homosexuality to be a constitutional right. Vaughn Walker, a gay federal judge in San Francisco, has ruled that same-sex marriage is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. Can anyone believe this absurd notion of equality was intended by or written into the constitution by the Congress that produced the 14th Amendment? Although gay marriage has been rejected in 31 states in referenda, judges continue to declare that such unions be treated as marriages. An idea of equality rejected democratically by voters is being imposed dictatorially. In December 2010, a repudiated liberal Congress imposed its San Francisco values on the Armed Forces, by ordering homosexuals admitted to all branches of the service. Indoctrination of recruits, soldiers, and officers into an acceptance of the gay lifestyle will transfer authority over the military, the most respected institution in America, to agents of a deeply-resented and widely detested managerial state.

At what point does America get serious about hate speech? Freedom of speech has been abused long enough. If strict First Amendment advocates won’t budge, let’s make this an issue of capitalism. When will the free market refuse to financially support people who spew hate speech, and when will the main stream media refuse to give them a platform, and pay them for their “opinions?”

Bolton Blasted Trump’s Ukraine Extortion: ‘I Am Not Part of Whatever Drug Deal Rudy and Mulvaney Are Cooking Up’

Published

on

Three months ago then-National Security Advisor John Bolton warned administration insiders he would have no part of President Donald Trump’s off-the-books shadow government Ukraine extortion scandal. Bolton also apparently implicated both the president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and the president’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvany.

“I am not part of whatever drug deal Rudy and Mulvaney are cooking up,” Bolton told senior director for Russian and Eurasian affairs Fiona Hill to tell White House lawyers, The New York Times reports in a bombshell article late Monday night.

Bolton, who resigned from the Trump administration hours before President Trump tweeted he had fired him, instructed Hill “to notify the chief lawyer for the National Security Council that Mr. Giuliani was working with Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, on a rogue operation with legal implications,” Hill told House of Representatives investigators on Monday.

Not one to shy away from confrontation himself, Bolton also called Giuliani, who is now reportedly under criminal investigation,  “a hand grenade who’s going to blow everybody up.”

This is a breaking news and developing story. Details may change. This story will be updated, and NCRM will likely publish follow-up stories on this news. Stay tuned and refresh for updates.

CORRUPTION

Giuliani Demands Investigation of Ambassador Yovanovitch — but Can’t Even Spell Her Name

Published

on

Rudy Giuliani on Monday demanded an investigation into former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch — who had spent the day testifying before Congress.

Giuliani made the statement while retweeting a conspiracy theory by Tom Fitton of the far-right group Judicial Watch:

“No wonder [Trump] and President Zelensky of Ukraine agreed Ambassador Yonacovitch (sic) was a real problem,” Giuliani said, while misspelling Yovanovitch’s name.

“I wonder if Shiftless asked her about this? Will there be an investigation or is she another ‘Protected Person’ like Biden & Hillary,” Giuliani tweeted.

Despite being implicated in the scandal, Giuliani has continued to speak out in attempts to defend the work he did with Trump to solicit foreign election assistance.

‘Complete Gibberish’ and ‘Garbled Nonsense’: Experts Weigh in on Trump Announcement of Sanctions ‘Soon’ Against Turkey

Published

on

“He’s Yeltsin, without the vodka.”

Experts are weighing in after President Donald Trump finally admitted action must be taken against Turkey’s ethnic cleansing of the Kurds, a move wholly enabled when President Trump pulled out U.S. forces from the region last week. There has been bipartisan and worldwide condemnation of Trump’s actions, which immediately led to the death of at least dozens of now-former U.S. allies.

In a statement posted to Twitter Monday afternoon, Trump threatened sanctions and the raising of tariffs on Turkey, “soon.”

“I will soon be issuing an Executive Order authorizing the imposition of sanctions against current and former officials of the Government of Turkey and any persons contributing to Turkey’s destabilizing actions in northeast Syria,” Trump’s statement reads. “Likewise, the steel tariffs will be increased back up to 50 percent, the level prior to reduction in May. The United States will also immediately stop negotiations, being led by the Department of Commerce, with respect to a $100 billion trade deal with Turkey.”

Experts are weighing in, with some calling Trump’s threats too little, too late – especially given that Trump wholly and single-handedly created the disaster now confronting the world.

One, a researcher at the democracy and freedom watchdog Freedom House, called the president’s remarks “complete gibberish.”

Another, a senior editor at The Diplomat, an international affairs magazine called Trump’s statement “garbled nonsense.”

He also endorsed this observation:

Bloomberg News reporter notes there are not actually any sanctions yet, just a second round of threats:
