So I was wrong about Trump not signing the loyalty pledge. I forgot to figure in the financial angle into his decision making i.e. I forgot about his true love, Money. It is the root of all Trump. I also predicted that Tom Brady would be held accountable for his cheating. Its good to be a rich white man in America, isn't it? I did however also predict that County Clerk in Kentucky would end up in jail if she didn't start doing her job and that the President would get the votes to pass the Iran deal. Just for the record, a .500 batting average would get you into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

My prediction about the much anticipated Trump press conference this afternoon is that he will announce that he won't sign the loyalty pledge promising not to run as a 3rd party candidate but he fully expects to support the Republican candidate, even if it is not him. My prediction is based on what I think Trump thinks will get him the most publicity. He's not a serious candidate for President. He is a reality TV star. He will try to play both the crazy racist Tea Partiers AND the big business elite who actually control the GOP (ie. >"Mexico sends its rapists and criminals across the border but of course, I'm sure some Mexicans are very good people") but the primary drive for his candidacy is to feed his inflated self-absorbed ego based on no actual accomplishments of his own but rather his good luck in being born a white man in America. That's why so many Americans identify with him. I could be wrong (like I was to believe Colin Powell when he convinced me that we needed to invade Iraq based on the last Republican President's lies) but I doubt it.
The "Black Lives Matter" debate is one of the stupidest thing I've seen in a while. Saying black lives matter doesn't mean that they are the only lives that matter or that white lives don't matter. Does saying you like chocolate ice cream mean you hate vanilla ice cream (excuse the unfortunate choice of flavors in my tortured metaphor)? The Black Lives Matter movement grew out of people's frustrations at the justice systems' failure to hold people accountable when the victim is a black person unless someone happens to be nearby and has an iPhone to record it (the officer shooting the man in the back as he flees comes to mind). Trayvon would be 20 years old now had he not crossed paths with Zimmerman that night when he went to get those skittles.
The Anti Drudge Report
I would like to thank the obnoxious right wing troll who has recently been posting non-stop crap on the ADR Facebook page for reminding me of all the ignorant hateful fucks out there that are still trying to deny economic justice and human rights to working people around the world and how important it is for each of us to fight the good fight. Every day.

Recent Reply to Right-Winger who accused progressives of not having a sense of humor: just so you know, I take all that right wing crap with a grain or salt..and a chuckle, you just have to laugh sometimes to keep from crying...but those of us who don't think the President is a Muslim terrorist socialist hell bent on destroying country are sick and tired of all the personal attacks and lies (see above) lobbed at the President on a non-stop daily basis..and frankly, most of us are painfully aware that THIS President is subjected to a higher level of scorn and disrespect that seems to be unique to him as a person..and there's really only one thing about him that seems to explain why. Especially since his record on the economy and killing terrorists (remember Osama Bin Laden anyone?), and on all kinds of other issues (notice how Obamacare did not in fact end civilization as we know it and I"ve not seen one deathsquad put any old people down yet),..you would think that at some point the vitriol on the right would have been placated..but instead, it has only increased. There. You are right, I had the last word. Namaste.
I originally created the Anti Drudge Report as a place where people could go to get the latest political news without being subjected to the right wing bias and race-baiting bullshit on some other popular websites. My plan was to keep it going though at least the re-election of President Obama and then I would make a cost-benefit analysis on whether I should keep it going or not. I finance it out of my own rather limited funds and spend about an hour each day updating it. I love doing it but really think it needs to be advertised and financed better to really be an effective tool in the fight for progressive ideas. It needs to be updated more often and publicized to reach a larger audience and I don't really have the resources or time to do either. If anyone knows someone that would like to invest in the ADR, let me know as without some kind of support structure at some point I'll have to sell the domain and/or let it go and I think its a good idea that needs to continue even if I can't do it myself.

The story I posted this morning about Matt Drudge questioning the Republican Party's recent trend of actually supporting some of the President's positions make it clear that the only policy that "right-wingers" share by and large is a disdain for the President personally. You know if this were President Romney suggesting a cruise missile attack against a country that had used chemical weapons against its own people the right-wing blogosphere would be all for it but for some reason, (and I just can't put my finger on it >sarcasm), they can't bring themselves to support ANY position this President puts forth. In fact, they most often won't state their opinion on an issue until they have seen what it is the President wants to do, in order that they know which position to oppose. Hmmm...what is it about this particular President that makes him so vilified by the right? It just makes me wonder. (not) <FACEPALM>
