MSNBC's John Heilemann: OK For Trump to Kill Parents

The stuff that goes on MSNBC is shocking. The things people say on that network are stunningly deranged.

From RealClearPolitics, a transcript excerpt from MSNBC's Morning Joe:

JOHN HEILEMANN: Can I just say quickly. I like the idea that you see as the bad example of what would be the core that would say it was okay for Donald Trump to dissolve media institutions because media institutions are just super unpopular?

I would like a pollster to ask this question: 'How many people in the Republican Party think that it would be okay for Donald Trump to dissolve their own grandparents?'

I'm virtually certain if it was a Donald Trump-related question you'd get like 10 percent that would be like, 'Donald Trump has the power to do whatever he wants, including kill my parents.'

I'm being hyperbolic. Don't everybody look so appalled... I'm trying to make the point -- I think there are certain things that there are some people who... that they just hear the question as the media is trying to test my loyalty to Donald Trump, and if it's a question about whether Trump has the authority to do anything, they will say 'yes' no matter what that thing is.

It's his test question of I could shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and they would stay with me.

HEILEMANN: That is where I was trying to get to, although bringing it a little closer to home and make it their own parents or grandparents.

GEIST: Boy, this show got dark real fast.

HEILEMANN: It's the era we live in, buddy.
John Heilemann is deranged.

Ten percent of people in the Republican Party would be OK with it if President Trump wanted to kill their parents or grandparents?

That is disgusting.

This incessant disparaging of millions of Americans is unacceptable discourse.

MSNBC is a disgrace.

Catholic Priests in Pennsylvania Sexually Abused More Than 1000 Children

From the Associated Press:

An estimated 300 Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania molested more than 1,000 children — and possibly many more — since the 1940s, according to a scathing Pennsylvania grand jury report released Tuesday that accused senior church officials, including the man who is now archbishop of Washington, D.C., of systematically covering up complaints.

...The grand jury heard from dozens of witnesses and reviewed more than a half-million pages of internal diocesan documents, including reports by bishops to Vatican officials about the allegations against priests.

The panel concluded that a succession of bishops and other diocesan leaders tried to shield the church from bad publicity and financial liability. They failed to report accused clergy to police, used confidentiality agreements to silence victims and sent priests to “treatment facilities,” which “laundered” the clergymen and “permitted hundreds of known offenders to return to ministry,” the report said.

The conspiracy of silence extended beyond church grounds: Police or prosecutors sometimes did not investigate allegations out of deference to church officials or brushed off complaints as outside the statute of limitations, the grand jury said.

A former Pennsylvania county prosecutor was fired Wednesday from his job as an attorney for a county youth services office after the report showed that, as Beaver County’s elected district attorney in the 1960s, he stopped an investigation into alleged child abuse by a priest to gain political favor from the Pittsburgh Diocese.

Diocese leaders responded Tuesday by expressing sorrow for the victims, stressing how they’ve changed and unveiling, for the first time, a list of priests accused of sexual misconduct.
What I find stunning about the Catholic Church's sexual abuse scandal is that it was kept hidden for so long.

How did thousands and thousands of parents fail to demand accountability from their church? Why didn't they demand criminal charges against these abusers?

I'm Catholic. If a priest abused my child, I would not rest until the monster was arrested and punished.

Why was there just silence?

This statement from the President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and its Chairman for the Committee for the Protection of Children and Young People is woefully inadequate.

Sorry isn't enough. Priests committed crimes and covered them up. Church leaders engaged in aiding and abetting criminals.

They aren't above the law.

Why would parents accept a priest getting away with abusing their child? Why would anyone permit church leaders to cover up criminal behavior?

It's unfathomable to me.

President Revokes John Brennan's Security Clearance

John Brennan accused President Trump of treason.

Without a doubt, revoking Brennan's privilege makes sense.

Andrew Cuomo: America Was 'Never That Great'

Democrat Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York, doesn't think highly of his country.

We're not going to make America great again. It was never that great.

Cuomo gave his measure of America - "never that great." It's one shared by many Democrats.

Trump Calls Omarosa 'Dog'

And this was biggest story in the country on Tuesday:

I understand why President Trump would feel that way. I don't understand why he would tweet that. It's as if he wanted to be criticized. I think it was a mistake to call Omarosa a dog. It gave his enemies fodder to attack him.

However, the spin that calling Omarosa a dog is evidence Trump is racist is ridiculous. He has called many people dogs and other assorted insults. We know by now that's what he does.

I wish Trump wouldn't give his enemies these gifts. I don't like it at all, but when all is said and done I really don't care.

Without a doubt, the country and the world is better off with Trump as president of the United States.

Tony Evers Wins Democrat Primary for Governor

Tony Evers won the Democrat primary for governor. He'll be challenging Governor Scott Walker.

Thanks to the Democrats and their insane recall effort, Walker has been elected governor of Wisconsin three times.

Democrat Evers lacks sizzle. Well, that's an understatement.

Education is certainly an important issue, but it's far from the only issue.

The state's economic progress under Walker's leadership is undeniable.

Wisconsinites would be crazy to oust Walker and elect Evers as governor.

I know some recent polls show Evers ahead of Walker, but polls also showed Hillary Clinton was guaranteed victory in Wisconsin. Polls showed Ron Johnson was going to lose to Russ Feingold in 2016. Those polls, of course, were wrong.

This is going to be a very tough election.

Money from all over the country will be pouring into the state. The Democrats would love to take Paul Ryan's congressional seat, reelect Tammy Baldwin, and defeat Scott Walker. You can almost hear them drooling over that.

However, in Wisconsin, out-of-state money and the Democrat machine don't translate into victory at the polls.

Scott Walker made history when he won the recall election.

Ron Johnson prevailed in a race the Democrats believed was theirs.

And, in the sweetest upset of all, Hillary Clinton lost Wisconsin to Donald Trump, the first time the state voted Republican for president since Ronald Reagan's 1984 reelection.

On Tuesday, once again, millions and millions of dollars in out-of-state money couldn't deliver victory in Wisconsin. Leah Vukmir defeated Kevin Nicholson.

Yes, lots of money will be spent to elect Democrats in Wisconsin in 2018.

As we've seen again and again, money isn't everything.

Complacency is the biggest problem conservatives in Wisconsin face.

We can win and we will win, but not if we don't vote.

Hopefully, come November, Tony Evers will join Tom Barrett on the list of Democrat challengers rejected by Wisconsin voters and Scott Walker will be delivering yet another acceptance speech.
