Did you know: Mike Pence cast the eighth-most tie-breaking votes (9) among Presidents of the Senate of the United States just to stop the Democrats. The cause didn’t matter, it was strictly a true party dumb-ass move requiring a lack of balls.  He is truly by virtue of his own mouth and his quotes an ass-kissing true “uninformed ideological moron” perfect for a man like Donald Trump.

Eulogy  - a speech  or piece of writing that praises someone or something highly, typically someone who has just died: his “ good friend” delivered a brief eulogy.
This paragraph is devoted to the useless hypocritical individuals namely Mike Pence, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan who appeared at the Funeral of a true American hero, John McCain.

And then there were the three who spoke on Friday at John McCain’s Funeral. You had to control your gag reflex watching Vice President Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) extol McCain’s greatness as he was accorded the honor of lying in state.  

Consider Pence for a moment. He began with a ludicrous declaration that broke all records for disingenuousness:
“The president asked me to be here on behalf of a grateful nation, to pay a debt of honor and respect to a man who served our country throughout his life, in uniform and in public office. It’s my great honor to be here.” 

TRUTH - President Trump despised McCain and routinely mocked him. Suggesting that Pence was there to represent Trump would require him to insult and mock McCain. Pence accepted the vice presidency and stuck with Trump despite the;

•    “Access Hollywood” tape
•    Despite Trump’s denigration of McCain’s service and calling him a coward
•    Despite overt racism and contempt for human rights. 
•    He has not batted an eye over the hush-money payments to women
•    His attacks on the rule of law, the evisceration of decorum.
•    Only in Washington could such a spineless creature sally forth to declare McCain a hero.
To call McCain a hero is to recognize his heroic qualities, of which Trump has none. 
•    You can worship Trump or admire McCain; it’s metaphysically impossible to do both. 

Meghan McCain’s glare was an appropriate reaction to Pence’s hypocrisy.  VP Pense is truly the Junior Scumbag in the White House.

  • While that amendment failed, human cloning continues to advance and the breakthrough in this unethical and morally questionable science is around the corner.

    ( Some believe and describe his actions as totally fracking things up )

  • And this President has been rolling back excessive regulations and unfair trade practices that were stifling American jobs.
    ( A supremely large dose of shit with appallingly bad results and hurting America)

  • Thanks to President Trump’s leadership, American businesses are growing again; investing in America again; and they're creating jobs in this country instead of shipping jobs overseas.  Thanks to President Donald Trump,  America is back. 
    ( Hmmm not really, not the good jobs, McDonalds and Burger King are hiring, and we are loosing businesses due to tariffs and trade wars as fast as we put them on the charts)

  •  And just last week we all witnessed the bold leadership of an American President on the world stage, putting America first.  From the Middle East, to Europe, as leader of the free world, President Trump reaffirmed historic alliances, forged new relationships, and called on the wider world to confront the threat of terrorism in new and renewed ways. 
    (Not So!  He totally has alienated ‘ UN-AFFIRMED’  relationships with NATO members, Global Warming,  about ten trade agreements,  the leaders  of Canada, Mexico, Germany,  France and about half the world.   

  • He did try to forge new  relationships with the two biggest killers in the world, Kim Jung Un and Vladimir Putin, some track record.  I guess a scumbag feels most comfortable with other scumbags...   Spoken like a true useless parrot scumbag.

Washington (CNN) —
The first major book focusing on Vice President Mike Pence during his time in the executive branch is set to be released Tuesday.  Penned by authors Michael D’Antonio and Peter Eisner, Shadow President: 

The Truth about Mike Pence purports that the vice president's rise in politics has been carefully calculated through the years. It draws contrasts between Pence and President Donald Trump, but also comparisons in their use of mass media.

Pence once had a radio show in Indiana and jokes he is “ Rush Limbaugh on decaf" to build profiles in separate political circles over the years.  The authors deem Pence a "replacement president," pointing to his recent trips this year to Israel and South Korea where he presided over "landmark events."

Between his political connections to the religious right and powerful fundraising groups, a Trump administration filled with many of his proteges and friends, and his statesman approach to the world stage, D'Antonio and Eisner paint Pence as a "shadow president."

Here are some takeaways from the book Shadow President: The Truth about Mike Pence:

He dreams big: 
Then-Rep. Pence mused about inauguration to interns. While giving Capitol Hill interns a tour of the campus during the summer of 2010, Pence remarked that in modern times since Ronald Reagan's inauguration, the presidential swearing-in took place on the West Front of the Capitol.

But Pence said his preference to be sworn in on the East Front of the Capitol because the lighting was better.  "One intern would recall that he said it was all about the light. In January, the noontime sunlight on the west-facing side of the building was just too bright," D'Antonio and Eisner wrote.

Who will save your soul? 
Pence believes he can save Trump's soul: citing "one of Pence's closest aides," the authors write extensively of Pence's religious journey from growing up as a Catholic to evangelical Christianity.

One person close to Pence asserts that "the vice president actually believed he could bring Trump to Jesus, and like Jesus, he was willing to do whatever was necessary to help save Trump's soul."

Pence also attends a regular Cabinet prayer meeting presided over by Reverend Ralph Drollinger, where Betsy DeVos, Ben Carson, Sonny Perdue and more are regulars.

Trump cameo in 1990 debate
Trump came up during one of Pence's congressional bids in 1990, though Mike Pence didn't formally meet the President until many years later in 2011 when he asked for financial support as he ran for governor.

His future running mate came up during a 1990 debate when Pence faced off against Phil Sharp, an incumbent Democrat who served in Indiana's 2nd Congressional District. The future vice president's platform during the race included reductions to the federal estate tax and rollback on the capital gains tax, something that his opponent thought was a Trump-friendly proposal.

Mike Pence stays silent for another explosive news week.
“Donald Trump will be delighted to hear your commitment because 80% of the capital gains tax (reduction) will go to people who make $100,000 a year," the opponent said.  During that 1990 race, which Pence eventually lost, he also used a counting device to tally the number of hands he shook a day -- 100 was his goal.

Twitter troubles?
During a visit to the Kennedy Space Center in July 2017, Pence reached out and touched a piece of "critical space flight hardware" that was clearly labeled "do not touch."

The authors report that his staff went into "full manage control mode" as the internet mercilessly mocked him. His staff drafted tweets for him but Pence was apparently "exasperated" and didn't see the big deal. The Office of the Vice President decided to embrace the joke, tweeting this: “ Sorry NASA ...@ MarcoRubio dared me to do it!”  D'Antonio and Eisner note that self-deprecation remains a quality that Trump hardly knows, drawing a sharp contrast between the two men.

Shoulder rubs and broad shoulders
One favorite campaign trail line of Pence's while he stumped for Trump in fall 2016 was that Trump himself was "broad-shouldered," or that he would provide "broad-shouldered American strength" on the world stage. 

According John Krull with The Indianapolis News who was interviewed for the book, he was talking with colleague when "all of a sudden, somebody was grabbing my shoulders from behind and almost massaging them. I turned around and I was surprised -- it was the governor, Mike Pence."

Krill recalled that it made him uncomfortable even though it happened a few times.  “I’m not a touchy-feely kind of guy," he said.

‘Compassionate conservative'
In 2004 when Pence was serving in Congress, he burnished his reputation as a "compassionate conservative" when he intervened on behalf of a woman from Sierra Leone who was stopped for speeding in his district when police discovered a 15-year-old deportation order that her ex-husband had incited after calling the authorities on her years before.

Pence intervened and the deportation order was dropped. He said at the time that she "belongs with her family."

And now both China and Japan have new trade accords signed and sealed with direct routing planned for Europe completely circumventing the US.  Good job! Herr Trump and Pence,  a team that will truly lower our standing in the world in prestige, honor,  trade, and global leadership as we are left out.  The Euro-Asia direct pact will hurt America, another blunder by idiots.

You’ve probably heard of the Silk Road, the ancient trade route that once ran between China and the West during the days of the Roman Empire. It’s how oriental silk first made it to Europe. It’s also the reason China is no stranger to carrots. 

And now it’s being resurrected. Announced in 2013 by President Xi Jinping, a brand new double trade corridor is set to reopen channels between China and its neighbours in the west: most notably Central Asia, the Middle East and Europe. 

According to the Belt and Road Action Plan released in 2015, the initiative will encompass land routes (the “Belt”) and maritime routes (the “Road”) with the goal of improving trade relationships in the region primarily through infrastructure investments. 

The aim of the $900 billion scheme, as China explained recently, is to kindle a “new era of globalization”, a golden age of commerce that will benefit all. Beijing says it will ultimately lend as much as $8 trillion for infrastructure in 68 countries. That adds up to as much as 65% of the global population and a third of global GDP, according to the global consultancy McKinsey.



1. He signed one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country.

In April, Gov. Pence signed into law a bill that forbids abortion on the basis of fetal chromosomal abnormalities, including Down syndrome, among other factors. The law further bans fetal-tissue donation — requiring any aborted or miscarried fetus to be cremated or buried. And it placed onerous restrictions on abortion providers nearly identical to those that the Supreme Court recently found unconstitutional in Texas.

2. He signed a bill that made it OK for Indiana businesses to discriminate against LGBT customers.
In 2015, Pence signed a “religious freedom” law, whose sweeping language permitted Indiana businesses to refuse to serve LGBT Americans, much like Southern businesses used to discriminate against African-Americans during the days of segregation. 

Backlash against the law was swift and intense. Pence was forced to quickly sign a bill amending the legislation, which the governor claimed had been subject to “mischaracterizations.”

3. He blocked the resettlement of Syrian refugees in Indiana — and illegally tried to cut off federal aid to existing refugees.
In the wake of the massacre in Paris last fall, Pence issued an executive order to block the resettlement of Syrian war refugees in Indiana. Not content to keep new war widows and orphans out of the state, Pence upped the xenophobic ante by also trying to cut off federal aid to those already in the state. A federal judge blocked Pence’s action, writing that the governor’s order “clearly constitutes national origin discrimination” and “in no way directly, or even indirectly, promotes the safety of Indiana citizens.”

4. He’s an unreconstructed drug warrior.
At a time when lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are tackling the nation’s drug problems with less focus on incarceration, Pence signed a bill to reinstating a mandatory minimum drug sentence. Many drug users sell drugs on the side to support their addictions. Thanks to Pence, any Indiana resident convicted twice for selling meth or heroin is now sentence to a full decade in prison. Expressing his pleasure at signing a law stripping judges of discretion in drug sentencing, Pence declared, “We need to make it clear that Indiana will not tolerate the actions of criminals.”


Almost  with the exception of  VP Mike Pence, the Official Jesus Adorant in the Washington area who seldom speaks, only when told and only with that stoic, I just crapped in my pants monotone his ass-kissing verbiage goes beyond adoration and I  believe because he is scared sh*tless of the President and is a weak minded individual.  

When TRUMP passes on whether it be health, suicide, impeachment, death by drone  ( better luck to those guys in Venezuela, practice, practice...)  and Pence might be his successor, we’ll really need Jesus, maybe even Moses to straighten that mess out. 

I suppose he will worry about that if Mike Pence has to take over, he picked Mike because Mike is the consummate yes man. Or shall we say the consommé yes man, thin skinned and watery, little substance, Jesus ado-rant, to love Jesus that much, what are you so guilty of for that much forgiving, could it be the “Obstruction of Justice charges brought back as Governor”’?

And just to worry even more, Pence is dumber than a rock, and thats dangerous.  The Koch-brothers tool so feared by liberals because he might be more efficient at bringing America to its knees faster than his boss.  

Were Pence to ascend unelected to the presidency after a Trump collapse, still more scandals would pour out, Republicans in Congress would be fighting for their political lives, the economy would be rattled, and Washington would default.  Pence is the quintessential GOP extremist, a radically anti-choice former governor and fierce opponent of gay, women, abortion, and civil health and regulatory rights.                                     



Mike Pence Tangles with Olympian 

Adam Rippon Over Gay Rights Record

The 2018 Winter Olympics officially opened on Friday but the first bit of drama has already boiled over: a dispute between:

•  Adam Rippon, the first openly gay American man to qualify to compete in the Winter Games; and Mike Pence, the conservative vice president and longtime opponent of gay rights; did not hit it off.    And USA today also is a participant.   Mr. Rippon also declined an invitation to meet with Mr. Pence before the Games, his agent said.

•  As controversies go, this one seems to have it all. Mr. Rippon, a charismatic 28-year-old figure skater, newly minted gay icon and social media darling, criticized Mr. Pence for his opposition to gay rights and long-rumored support of conversion therapy, a discredited practice that proponents claim can make gay people straight.   

This holy roller treatment sponsored and already banned in several states is also promoted by bat-Shit crazy Michelle Bachmann’s husband  ( see Michelle Bachmann)  The government is investigating , it is believed to be a fraud wasting Medicare and Medicaid funding. 

Mr. Pence and his spokespeople have pushed back, arguing that he does not support conversion therapy, which has been discredited by the medical community and condemned by rights groups.  

He Is Weirder Than Michelle Bachmann 

Mr. Pence has been dogged by claims that he supports conversion therapy since his 2000 campaign for Congress. After stating his opposition to same-sex marriage and anti-discrimination laws that protect gay people, his campaign website addressed the Ryan White Care Act, which provided federal funding for H.I.V. / AIDS patients:

Congress should support the reauthorization of the Ryan White Care Act only after completion of an audit to ensure that federal dollars were no longer being given to organizations that celebrate and encourage the types of behaviors that facilitate the spreading of the HIV virus. Resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior.

That was widely interpreted as signaling his support for conversion therapy. Representatives for Mr. Pence did not respond to emails seeking comment this week. But in January, a spokeswoman, Alyssa Farah, responded to Mr. Rippon, telling USA Today, “This accusation is totally false and has no basis in fact.”

In 2016, a spokesman, Marc Lotter, denied that Mr. Pence supported conversion therapy and said his campaign website proposed federal funding for “groups that promoted safe sexual practices.”   But Mr. Lotter declined to explain what Mr. Pence meant when he referred to groups that “celebrate and encourage” activity that spreads HIV Gay and transgender groups view that language as directed at their community.

An invitation and a rejection
But two weeks later, things escalated. On Wednesday, USA Today reported that Mr. Pence’s office was so concerned about Mr. Rippon’s criticism that it had taken the unusual step of asking the United States Olympic Committee to arrange “a conversation between the two. 

Mr. Rippon, true to his word, would not meet with the vice president, the paper reported.  That seemed to be too much for Mr. Pence. On Thursday, he lashed out at the paper, tweeting that the report was “fake news” and that the journalist who had written it was bent on dividing Americans. But he was careful not to criticize Mr. Rippon.

Donald Trump, a man who senses weakness and picks stooges like the farm workers during picking season.  He picked the boring, and collared Mike Pence.  A born again (first time was a complete f*ck up) with his talent for saying the right words even if they are unbelievable for the position of Supreme Ass-Kisser to the President. 

Trump knew, he might become America’s most repulsive public figure. And Mike Pence, who dethroning his benefactor, is augmenting the public stock of useful knowledge.  Simple Trump is his own party and Pence is the authentic voice of today’s lock-stepped liars called the GOP or the Republican Party, he clarifies this year’s elections: Vote Republican to ratify groveling as governing.

Between those two Cabinet meetings, Pence and his retinue flew to Indiana for the purpose of walking out of an Indianapolis Colts football game, thereby demonstrating that football players kneeling during the national anthem are intolerable to someone of Pence’s refined sense of right and wrong.

Which brings us to his Arizona salute last week to Joe Arpaio, who was sheriff of Maricopa County until in 2016 voters wearied of his act.

Noting that Arpaio was in his Tempe audience, Pence, oozing from every pore, called Arpaio “another favorite,” professed himself “honored” by Arpaio’s presence, and praised him as “a tireless champion of . . . the rule of law.”

Arpaio, a grandstanding, camera-chasing bully and darling of the thuggish right, is also a criminal, convicted of contempt of court for ignoring a federal judge’s order to desist from certain illegal law enforcement practices. Pence’s performance occurred eight miles from the home of Sen. John McCain, who could teach Pence — or perhaps not — something about honor.

Henry Adams said that “practical politics consists in ignoring facts,” but what was the practicality in Pence’s disregard of the facts about Arpaio? His pandering had no purpose beyond serving Pence’s vocation, which is to ingratiate himself with his audience of the moment. The audience for his praise of Arpaio was given to chanting “Build that wall!” and applauded Arpaio, who wears Trump’s pardon like a boutonniere.

Hoosiers, of whom Pence is one, sometimes say that although Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky and flourished in Illinois, he spent his formative years — December 1816 to March 1830 — in Indiana, which he left at age 21.

It is said that one cannot blame people who applaud Arpaio and support his rehabilitator's, like Trump, Pence ( Who else but haters)   Republicans silent about Pence have no such excuse.

There will be negligible legislating by the next Congress, so ballots cast this November will be most important as validations or repudiations of the harmonizing voices of Trump, Pence, Arpaio and the like.

Trump is what he is, a floundering, inarticulate jumble of gnawing insecurities and not-at-all compensating vanities, which is pathetic. Pence is what he has chosen to be, which is horrifying.
