ABSOLUTELY NO COLLUSION

Trump’s Redundant Refrain

There is a theory that if you say something over and over, you tend to believe that it’s true, even if it isn’t. On the other side of that coin, there are many who believe that people never change. While the microanalysis of Donald Trump is taking place, there are those people who are watching for some sign of change, a pivot of sorts.

During the bi-partisan meeting the other day in the Cabinet room of the White House, the naïve newscasters and junk journalists were fooled once again with the President’s confusing presentation. At times Trump seemed to sound a bit Democrat, even saying that a separate “clean” DACA bill could happen. After push back from Republican attendees, Trump followed up with a tweet to “clarify” his positions. This dingbat cannot present a clear and focused message outside of a slogan.

And in a press conference yesterday (1-10-2018), our Great Orange Leader said there was “absolutely no collusion” seven times in ninety-seconds. He also redefined the suggestion of sitting down with Robert Mueller to talk about Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election. He seems to think the investigation is coming to an end and if he just keeps repeating his mantra, “absolutely no collusion” that this “hoax” or “witch hunt” will go away. He has purchased the upper class with his tax cut and soaring stock market, while removing the pillars of freedom that have made America great.

In a recent poll conducted by Morning Consult + Politico, 48% of the 1,988 respondents said Trump being exonerated by the end of 2018 was either very or somewhat likely. 37% saw that outcome as being not too likely or not at all likely and under one-third foresaw Trump leaving office before 2018 ends. So, it seems as if the trashing of Mueller’s team by the Alt-Right and Conservative media is working. The Republican Congress is also complicit in this muddying of the waters. But, as we all learned, statistics derived from samples the size of a large Baptist church don’t always get it right. Trump sees only positive numbers and discounts anything that shows him failing. So, why even undertake research on this dense humanoid with a bad combover?

The Donald is focused on a narrow strip of land, much like the kind on which his castle in Florida is built, to defend himself in the matter of the Russian investigation. There seems to be something hardwired in his mind that says all and any investigation into a foreign government lessens his win in the election. He cannot intellectually separate influence peddling and mass social media interference in our electoral process with his own self-image and legitimacy as a President. He and his Justice Department have done nothing to assure us it won’t happen again. He’s foolish to think that Russia will always be on his side. They could turn on him in a New York minute.

Just as Nixon kept saying, “I am not a crook,” Trump truly believes if he keeps saying the words, “absolutely no collusion,” that all this will go away. His top shelf lawyers encourage this illusion to keep him from losing it on camera and saying something that will surely sink his ship. Trump will get the accolade of being the worst client ever.

From this Website we find an entry written by Gerald N. Hill and Kathleen T. Hill saying that collusion in business happens when two persons (or business entities through their officers or other employees) enter into a deceitful agreement, usually secret, to defraud and/or gain an unfair advantage over a third party, competitors, consumers or those with whom they are negotiating.

President Trump’s claim that no one in his campaign talked to any Russians is untrue. When he says there was no collusion, he must have forgotten the meeting between his campaign manager, his son-in-law and his son Don Jr. Until the press revealed the meeting at Trump Tower, it was secret and there was an opportunity to game an advantage over a competitor. And, to make this much richer, it was with agents of a foreign nation. Was there a deceitful agreement? To use Trump’s own words, “Time will tell.”

He also raised the specter of changing the libel laws so that he could stop what he calls false and libelous statements from writers and broadcasters who “sit there and smile while money is pouring in their bank accounts.” Does this pumpkin understand that the first person to get attacked would be Donald Trump himself? He says libelous untruths that lower stock prices for a company he attacks. Imagine if the legal system punished someone who was “exercising” their First Amendment rights? The British system might be good for a country with a Queen, but doesn’t work in a Country without a King.

Notice Donald Trump’s body language when someone disagrees with him or he feels uptight. He crosses his arms across his chest, giving himself a giant hug so he can feel confident. He uses the phrase, “believe me” more than someone who is sure of what they are saying. The implication of the opposite drips from so many of the things he says and history will record the phrase, “absolutely no collusion,” as one of his more blatant lies.

We all want the investigations into Trump and his court of enablers and family members to end as soon as possible. Americans have no patience and we want to know that our country is in the hands of a responsible adult. We cannot trust Republicans, they are biased bastards. The Democrats are focused on repaying the Republicans for what they did to Obama and taking a page out of the Newt Gingrich playbook. Sad, but true.

The idea that our President can govern with any kind of fair and just comprehension of anyone outside of his base is lost. Mike Pence would not make a good president, but he would be controllable by a logical Congress. Collusion is a funny word. Trump is not a funny human being. He’s just a giant mistake.


THE HEAD COMPLAINER

Trump’s Mar-A-Largo Boredom

I love when people say, “It’s time to take off the gloves!” as if punching someone with your bare knuckles would do more damage to the person you are fighting. The real result of punching with no gloves is damage to your own hands. But in the spirit of over-using the cliché, maybe this year I will take the gloves off.

First, this low-life con man, who the manipulated masses elected to the most important office in the land, keeps forcing himself into every conversation at the New Year’s Eve party. I didn’t invite this person to attend my party and I wish he would shut up and go home.

I don’t give a rat’s ass how much golf the douche bag plays, but I am increasing irritated by his constant stream of negativity. “No wall, No DACA!” comes right after Trump tweeted about bi-partisanship in the New Year. We get it asshole, you want a freaking wall to compensate for some limp, failing body part.

He keeps pressing himself and longing for attention, like a spoiled-little brat who was deprived of his mother’s breasts and constantly craved his father’s attention. Just as the year was ending, he complained about the Post Office not charging Amazon enough to deliver their packages on the weekend. What a dipshit! He doesn’t realize that thousands of postal workers earn overtime to work those packages. What does he want the Post Office to do, give the business back to FedEx and UPS? CNN, yes, CNN, did a great job analyzing this latest blunder by Trump in this article. Donald J. Trump is one of the most unqualified, ill-equipped and naïve people we have ever elected President.

He tries to pump his low numbers in the polls by quoting a one-off that showed him with a decent score. He continually slams Fake News and seems to lack the ability to relax and enjoy his family during the holidays. And then, while millions of Americans are suffering through some of the coldest temperatures in decades, he tweets that the country could use some global warming. His modicum of knowledge of anything science-oriented embarrasses the citizens of this great nation and makes them feel worse, not better. If confronted, he will say that he was just kidding. The joke is on you, bozo. The sea level in West Palm Beach is expected to rise five to six feet and maybe Trump will live long enough to see Mar-a-Largo under water.

He throws a bone to The New York Times, the newspaper he seems to hate the most, with what the Times termed a rambling monologue. You don’t need to ask him any questions, simply turn on the mic or camera and let this idiot babble.

The Donald is like a circus monkey; throw a peanut and sit back and watch him do tricks. He relentlessly rambles and violently vomits his vile viewpoints and reconstructed truths, commonly known as lies. He made sure he worked in “there was no collusion” more than sixteen times. This baboon is more worried about dissing the dossier than making any sense. He is the walking, talking embodiment of the “implication of the opposite,” not comprehending that the more he denies the more it seems like he is guilty.

He blamed China of violating the sanctions against North Korea and claimed he “caught them RED HANDED” without any awareness of the pun or the accuracy of the accusation. What a dickhead to say on Twitter that China was in violation of an international order, when he is attempting to work with them. Why wouldn’t he simply pick up the phone and call their leader to discuss? Their government sent a message that they are not in violation and take the UN agreement very seriously. Another horrible glitch in the rancid brain of the “leader” of the free world.

There are a lot of people who don’t want to talk about impeachment because they can’t see a high crime or misdemeanor being committed here, but what about a lack of judgement and putting the country into a threatened position? This great Orange Leader isn’t taken seriously by the competent world leaders, and those with direct contact know that he is a liar.

I have said from the beginning that Donald Trump should be impeached for lying. And that I truly believe that the founding fathers assumed that the President of the United States of America would tell the truth to the people of this land. Our current president, with his corpulent orange body, will exploit his position for wealth and power until most of the voters stand up and force this fraud from his position. We need to rid ourselves of this whinny complainer and get on to better things. If he wants to know why he isn’t doing better in the polls, it’s because he always seems to have to put down someone. He’s slowly running out of “someones” to put down.

THE WORST YEAR FOR AMERICA

Trump Never Ceases to Embarrass

As we end this glorious year, a quick look back from the insanity of last year’s presidential campaign, that blossomed into a full-blown theater of the absurd this year, can give us no warm feelings. 32-35% of America think the great Orange Leader is doing a good job, while at least 65% disapprove of his governance. I contend that 20-25% of those who dislike his work also do not like him as a person.

People are full of distrust. According to the most recent figures from Gallup, approval of Congress is at 16 percent. Clearly, the voters have a low respect for the current leader of the free world and less regard for those who we elected to represent us. Why is this?

When President Trump speaks, he doesn’t focus on the positive. He always has to put-down, slam or berate someone or something. This leads to a net result of cynicism and negative reinforcement. It’s almost as if a victory for Trump isn’t significant unless someone else can be bullied and trashed as the loser. Trump has no ability to accept any criticism and can never admit that he may have been wrong. His most repulsive habit is his demand for righteousness.

It’s fitting that we write our last missive of this year on the shortest day of the calendar, for the darkness cannot come quick enough for this writer. We wait for that time when we can stagger back into the cave and attempt to forget about this notorious coward and his ghastly offense to our nation. There was not one day this year when I didn’t feel embarrassed that we have him as our President.

Deep down inside, I don’t want to find out that there was some conspiracy to fix the election with the Russians. That would only make me more nauseous and depressed. That anyone would collaborate, or even collude, with a foreign power against other Americans makes my stomach knot. I hope they find out that the current president was not involved in such an immoral mission. We don’t need a “pussy grabber” in the White House, but worse, we must never have a traitor in our midst.

Yes, colluding or collaborating or even scheming with the enemy should, without a doubt, be grounds for imprisonment and even execution. But we don’t do that in America. We could never admit that Richard Nixon, a felon of demonic stature, should serve one day in jail because we don’t imprison our politicians. We can shame them out of office, with some getting their pensions, but we never haul them off in a paddy wagon to rot in a jail. We save those spaces for drug addicts and those who have committed high crime and misdemeanors of another nature. You know, minorities and ingrates.

But there is a reason we have a two-party system, not birthed by the Declaration of Independence, or the Bill of Rights or the Constitution, but born in the houses of Congress to slow down major decisions. Yes, when we complain about how slow Congress is we are only applying what seems like a proper timeline for today’s frantic lifestyle, not how the system was designed.

It took 11 months for the Donald to get his big tax cut. Had he outlined it in detail and wrote it himself, he could have sped up the process but, rightfully, someone reminded him that it wasn’t his job to write a bill. And there isn’t an expert worth his salt in America who doesn’t see the 2017 tax legislation for what it is, a double down on the old “trickle down” theory. Giving large tax cuts to corporations and rich people is a medium-term myth that won’t solve the middle-class budget problem fast enough and help those most affected.

Trump cannot seem to win the popular vote or approval. The Russian probe eats away at his credibility. He denies so much which leads many people to ask the question, “What is the truth?” His dismissal of so many members of his team this year speaks to his inability to vet and hire the right people, while his obsessive and abusive use of Twitter to, as he says to communicate with his base and go around the mainstream media, is the exact reason many people are uneasy with his leadership. Some just see him as a mean person.

And it’s only fitting that the first year of Trump ends with a decisive rebuke of this administration yesterday (12-21-2017). Most of the world’s nations denounced Trump’s decree to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, Israel’s capital. Trump intimidated he would stop all aid to any nation that voted against his decision. Ambassadors of the 193-member General Assembly voted 128 to 9, with 35 abstentions, approving a nonbinding resolution demanding that the United States rescind the decision on Jerusalem.

Donald Trump keeps saying that he is making America Great Again and that our country is finally more respected around the world. From NATO, to the Paris Accord, to North Korea, to Russia, to the United Nations, we are NOT more respected. Some nations are laughing at us. Some leaders are scratching their heads. Most nations see Trump for what he is, a moron.

The more powerful and self-reliant countries spin it in a positive way saying that he’s only a temporary annoyance, but any reasoned leader sees our President as a threat to world stability and peace. The more dependent states, who in the past have needed the United States as an “involved parent,” will turn further to religious dogma and dark forces in the world for support and aid. Trump, who has no real knowledge of the Marshall Plan, wants to bulldoze our relationships with other nations. He’s a fool and the whole world sees him as an inflexible American asshole.

CHRISTMAS GIFT & LIES

The Catch 22 in Congress

There is a certain Catch 22 that our Congressional “leaders” now must navigate. For those without pop culture knowledge, a Catch 22 is a dilemma or difficult circumstance from which there is no escape, because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions. If one votes for something unpopular, it will eventually come back to bite them on the butt.

If you see things only through the eyes of an owner, you’ll never comprehend the heart of the American worker. The working calculus of those who run large corporations is a pretty simple equation. You have either profit or loss. When you have profit, life is good. When you have loss, you are dangerously close to being thrown out. Workers depend on the sound judgement of owners and bosses to keep things running profitably.

Owners are like politicians, they promise their workers a better life, but never at the expense of their own better life. These are facts. Owners always believe that workers should care about the success of the company. Sure, there are righteous bosses out there who judge people on performance and bonus them for good work but other masters succumb to the wishes of the stockholders and investors with little regard for the common worker. Raises are often “cost-of-living” concessions rather than genuine rewards.

And now we have this “giant” tax cut that will supposedly create jobs and increase wages for the masses. At least, that is how it’s been sold to the middle class in America. The theory, once again, is that if the rich and the corporate overlords earn money, they will naturally redistribute the wealth to their underlings. That has been given lip service very many times in the history of the world, but the results never match the words. Rich, fat, white people usually keep the money for themselves.

What the tax bill did, more than anything else, was to attempt a bargain with the large multi-national U.S. corporations to bring back jobs and money to our shores. Why would they trust that the government wouldn’t tax those funds later? The most absurd line used in the tax bill is that the corporate tax cuts are permanent. Ha, when is anything in America permanent?

One of the largest multi-national groups that feeds on the middle class is big pharm. With this “glorious” tax cut came the termination of the mandate in Obamacare. This will probably eliminate millions of health insurance accounts, thus creating a decrease in profits for not only the insurance companies but also for prescription vendors such as Walgreens, CVS and RiteAid. These firms will need to find a way to make up the revenue. Solution? Raise the prices. Thanks Congress.

With the Republican bravado and presidential chest pounding today (12-20-2017), we hear that the Donald’s men in suits want to take a next step with China, Canada and Mexico by imposing as much as a 20% tax on all their products coming into the United States. That means lumber for building houses, goods at Walmart and drugs processed overseas will become more expensive. Those increases will be passed along to the American consumer in the form of higher prices. Thanks, great Orange Leader.

The fantasy that corporations will give employees an across the board wage increase stinks like swamp gas emanating from the cesspool of trickle-down economics. It’s not voodoo economics, it’s demonic treachery on the highest order. First the middle class was sucked in voting for Trump. Now they are being fooled again by the Republican Congress dragging them into the swamp with their money flying out of their pockets.

Even the 2% or less that some people will get back in 2019 cannot be scammed as some major Christmas present for the middle class. Why didn’t they give the middle class a 15% decrease in taxes like they did the corporations? They will tell you that would have increased the debt, but they have already walked away from their conservative mantra of not increasing the debt. This time to the tune of $1.46 Trillion. WTF?

We all know that the original sin of politicians is that they lie. Trump lied when he said this tax cut bill would not be good for him. In fact, the wealthy, like the Trumps, will benefit from this greatly. And, just like Putin, Trump will leave office much richer than when he was when elected. The difference is Putin will never leave. Trump might leave early.

This bill was passed by only Republican hands. I am sure they are proud that they finally got something done, even when many experts have said, this will eventually hurt America. Trump only cares about his people, not all the people. He gave all his rich friends, donors and dingbat CEOs a French kiss for Christmas. The American public got the status quo with clouds forming on the horizon. Get ready for paying more America. You just got screwed again.

After all, Republicans usually spend more than Democrats while cutting social programs. Slashing 40% of the railroad funding won’t make train rides safer, Mr. Trump. Sure, give the money to the rich. They deserve it. They worked so hard.

And to the 13 members of Congress who are in the real estate business, congratulations you low-life scumbags. You think you are doing “the peoples’ work,” when in fact you are simply selfish whores.

THE FULL OF SH*T FACTOR

Trump’s Cage of Crazies

It is clear as we near the one-year mark of Donald Trump’s Presidency, that this has been a most embarrassing ride for most Americans. Some knew if from the start, while others are slowly starting to realize that we made a serious mistake.

Even the President himself doesn’t push back on the notion that chaos is part of his make-up, not the kind he wears, and nothing will ever be “normal” in the White House while he reigns.

Think of this: Mike Flynn, the National Security Adviser was in office for only 25 days, and now he’s plead guilty to lying to the FBI. Reince Priebus Chief of Staff, has left the building. Steve Bannon, Chief Strategist, is out, and wannabe Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, is gone. The rude and crude shorter termer, Anthony Scaramucci, was pounced on and pounded out before getting his first paycheck. Poor little Sean Spicer was thrown to the wind because he was one of the worst liars in the history of the government. Mike Dubke left before we even had a chance to understand what he did.

Then there’s Sally Yates, who was fired because she refused to do Trump’s dirty work. The President had the lack of intelligence to fire the head of the FBI, James Comey, so that the pressure of the Russian investigation would be lifted. His hasty action prompted Comey to testify about his relationship with Trump and motivate the appointment of a Special Counsel to take up the work of getting to the bottom of the Russian probe.

Let’s not forget the firing of Preet Bharara, US attorney in New York, Derek Harvey, Middle East advisor for National Security Council, Katie Walsh, Deputy White House Chief of Staff, Walter Shaub, office of Government Ethics, Michael Short, Press Aide, Tom Price, Secretary of Health & Human Services and now Omarosa Manigault, a Public Liaison Director of Communications. For most observers, Omarosa was nothing but a diversity prop.

Just like the character in his reality TV show, Donald Trump has a horrible record of recruitments and hires. He has no desire to keep anyone from the previous administration, regardless of their experience or expertise. Donald’s lack of patience and concentration constantly leads to misunderstandings, miscommunications and maligned employees. The man is a joke as an executive.

We must face the crushing reality that we will never have a well-oiled administration with our Great Orange Leader. The friction that Trump creates with his Tweets, uninformed opinions, conspiracy theories, harsh treatment of allies and ass-kissing of criminals and dictators will never change. Trump is a flawed, limited human being.

Trump’s cage of crazies is augmented by rich people with an agenda to paper their pockets while they have a chance to manage the money in favor of the wealthy without any serious effort to help the middle class. If this “full of shit factor” has not given you any hope, we understand. But this feckless fake should be motivating you to do something.

What can we do to thwart this maniac’s bad judgement and poor management of our blessed country? America cannot be left in the hands of a Republican majority. Without a major change in the numbers after the 2018 midterm elections, no citizen will have the right to complain about where we find ourselves. We all must act to block this madman’s agenda before he starts another war.

If you think in terms of keeping lunatics out of office, think Alabama. When the gene pool in Congress is devoid of democratic balance, the result is an aberrant, some would say criminal, shift in laws and policies. Congress is supposed to move slowly and apply gravity to make each decision considered and well formed. We can see how fast both the House and Senate moved on the Tax Cuts and Jobs act. They are trying to get what they want pushed through, without the burden of citizen review. Isn’t that taxation without representation?

There are those in Washington, DC who claim that, right after the first of the year, Robert Mueller’s investigation will unfold its big reveal and we will embark on the next season of TRUMP: A White House in Crisis. Will the main character fire more employees and maybe even the top cop in the investigation? Book it.

Will the daughter find out what she is supposed to do beyond redecorating her White House office? Will the son-in-law be able to bring peach in the Middle East in his lifetime? Will the General finally figure out that he has tarnished his reputation forever? Will the world ever regain esteem for America? Stay tuned. The second season must be watched live. The only person binging the series will the be the fat orange man sitting on the toilet with his Android phone in hand.

UNCHARTED TERRITORY

Trump and His Party

The word “rebuke” is a strong stab. This expression of sharp disapproval or criticism was plugged into many headlines today (12-12-2017), to sum up the Doug Jones victory for the vacant Alabama Senate seat. However, there’s much more to this victory than the total number of votes.

First, let us address the corpulent elephant in the room, Donald Trump. This is what he posted on his Twitter feed last night, “Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard-fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!”

And then after a bad night’s sleep, he continued this morning with, “The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election.  I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!”

Now I am not a doctor, but I will attempt some arm-chair psychoanalysis here. First of all, the congratulations tweet came rather early in the night. A clear desire to put this to bed before the sleepy presidential numbskull hit the pillow. Even Roy Moore refused to concede the election with a prayer to God to intercede, perhaps a prayer too late?

Trump mentioned the “write-in” votes being a big factor. Yes, as of this writing, there were more than 22,000 unverified write-in votes and clearly people were saying they didn’t like either candidate. Time will tell if those write-in votes were a Republican protest vote or serious concern about Moore’s history of pedophilia.

Trump brushes away the write-in factor with “a win is a win,” as if to say all that matters is winning, even when the other guy wins. Admirable, or is he setting us up? He says people in Alabama are great, and that “the Republicans” will have another shot soon. Gee, is he distancing himself from “the Republicans,” as if he is some external force in their universe? Some of the old-line Republicans wish he was.

And then, this morning, our great Orange Leader clears the air and disavows his involvement in this sordid affair by using the phrase, “I was right!” It takes so much courage to admit that you were right, even though your man lost. He even declares, “I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election.” This is pure Trumpean, or better known in medical circles as anosognosia. This extreme form of denial of the disorder itself is serious, and will eventually cripple this nation and the business of government. Maybe Trump is shooting for a constitutional crisis?

Trump complains to his base with the phrase, “…the deck was stacked against him!”  The President isn’t talking about Roy Moore here, he is lamenting his own predicament. When you collect the language, with “it never ends” and the cards being stacked against him, you can easily see a pattern of self-pity and perhaps a deep, dark, patricidal desire on his part. It’s as if all the enemies in the world are somehow after him and he’s never good enough for his father. He lashes out at anyone who stands in his way in order to prove his father wrong. What was said to this person when he was growing up?

Maybe that is why he likes people like Vladimir Putin and Rodrigo Duterte. They represent tyrants who would take out their own fathers to look better to their admiring fans. They are all narcissists and neurotic Nazi wannabes. They want to march their troops into the city, close all the shops, burn the printing presses and detain the dissenters with their guns and generals. They are on the living room carpet playing with their little plastic soldiers imagining they are the total commanders. And they get to decide what is right and wrong.

Trump was played by Bannon, once again, and they both lost in Alabama. Trump was busy picking a fight with demonic democratic women like Kirsten Gillibrand, who has called for him to resign for grabbing some pussy. Why doesn’t the junior Senator from New York understand that all women are liars. Women cannot be believed. She is just another target; a woman he needs to control so he can feel good about himself.

That is what Roy Moore was saying. It’s the same message. Bannon cannot deal with women, Trump cannot deal with women and many Congressmen would rather not work with women. How many women were invited into the inner circle to help write the healthcare bill? None.

Donald Trump is a horrible leader of a political party. He has that role only because he’s the president. What he really wants to do is sit in the corner with the people who tell him how great he is and eat two large pieces of cake, while they have but one. The Republican party will have to pick up the check.

Last night in Alabama, the party paid the check for something that was not only embarrassing to America, but to the people who were born in Alabama. In the moment, former basketball star and Alabama native Charles Barkley said it best, “This is a wakeup call for Democrats and I’ve told this to Doug Jones and I love Mr. Jones. They’ve taken the black vote and the poor vote for granted for a long time. It’s time for them to get off their ass and start making life better for black voters and for people who are poor. They’ve always had our votes and they abused our votes. But this is a wake-up call for Democrats to do better for black people and poor white people.” A pretty clear message and he used no Twitter page to say it. This was on CNN.

Roy Moore should have never been on the ballot. He’s yesterday’s bigotry. But before we all get stirred up about this one, let’s face some facts.

96% of the African-American vote went to Doug Jones, while only 4% of the minority vote went to Roy Moore. 98% of Black women voted for Doug Jones. But the reality in this special election was that 70% of White women voted for Roy Moore, while 65% of White men went with Moore and he still didn’t win. Why?

This election was less a victory for cross-over voting and more an achievement in high Democrat and African-American turnout. But we have seen this before with Barack Obama. Things were better for people like Judge Roy back when we had slavery, you know, when Black Americans couldn’t vote.

What this does say about our political process is that 60% of the voters stayed home because they weren’t excited about either candidate. That is what determined the outcome. Disinterest is the strongest voter suppression tool in America. Roy Moore intimating that slavery was a “good time” helped motivated those most affected by that sentiment.

Trump can take some of the blame, but only the national marketing blame, because local people don’t care what he says. That is the hardest pill for him to swallow today. Trump is just another politician who thinks putting his weight behind a local candidate means something. The weight he puts on this country, its people and the constitution is more than a bit discomforting. It feels like rape.

Naiveté, Ignorance or Fear

Trump’s Trip to Asia

It is clear to anyone watching or reading about President Donald Trump that the Russian investigation looms large over him. Trump cannot travel around the world without being asked about his relationship with Russian and, specifically, Vladimir Putin. Our leader answers those questions with confused rhetoric instead of providing a simple, clear and concise response.

Donald Trump said he believed Putin’s response to the question of interference in the US election. Trump failed the test of the great deal maker and helped propel responses from former intelligence chiefs and his own team. Former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, said that Trump was showing his naiveté, ignorance or fear.

There is some part of our great Orange Leader’s brain that compels him to continue repeating a claim, even after he himself has diluted the assertion with doubt. After Trump makes a statement, experts rush in to help clarify his thoughts. He then finds some wiggle room to get out of the lie or create a misrepresentation. Afterward he returns to the original claim, either in his speech or on Twitter. One could say that he has an inability to learn or a huge capacity for telling lies.

In Japan, Trump said that no one ever received the red-carpet treatment that he got. Clearly, the Donald doesn’t know that an Emperor in Japan must be referred to as “His Majesty the Emperor” and that no foreigner would ever get, in terms of ceremony, what the royalty of the country would receive. His comments show total naiveté. He is not as special as he believes and his comments to the contrary display his gross Ignorance on the world stage.

The notion of our president’s fear is an interesting observation, and one that I also hold. When Trump comes face to face with a person of power, he tries to make them like him. He does this in the name of getting things done but, in the long run, it makes people uneasy. As soon as Trump starts talking, he says downright stupid things about his hosts and their country or company. He’s like an abusive father who must denigrate a child to establish his power. In his mind, Trump believes this is love.

There is a bit of naiveté, ignorance and fear in every one of the Trump supporters. I assume they get most of that from Trump. He never takes time to think, adlibbing his way through life and chuckling inside every time he believes he has gotten away with something. He wears his ignorance like a badge. Our great Orange Leader proudly proclaims to getting his information from watching TV shows and news networks. He says he hates the media, but bases his theories on shoddy reporting and stories that have no basis in facts. He literally, uses “fake news” to govern, and his cult sees nothing wrong with whatever he does. What have we become as a nation?

Trump displays his fear outwardly. It’s easy to spot. He openly kowtows to leaders he’s not supposed to like, and treats our ally leaders with a dose of disregard and disrespect. Trump clearly indicated that he “believed Putin” when he said he didn’t interfere with our elections, and then he attacked those who were critical of him back home. He called former administration people “political hacks.”

But then, truth entered the picture. CIA Director Mike Pompeo said that he stands by US intelligence assessments that Russia meddled in the 2016 election. Trump, backed into a corner, retreated with, “What I said there is that I believe he believes that. And that’s very important for someone to believe. I believe that he feels that he and Russia did not meddle in the election.” And then, in truly Trumpean style, he adds, “As to whether I believe it or not, I am with our agencies, especially as currently constituted with the leadership.”

Some say that Trump is being played by Putin. I have said Trump will be played by anyone who compliments him, genuflects, grovels or kisses his big fat ass. Anyone who can get Trump’s brain chemicals oozing messages of gratification can acquire whatever they want. When confronted, Trump simply changes what he said. When caught in a lie, his plan is simple, decide whether to double-down on the lie or change the words to mean something else. He is truly naïve, ignorant, afraid, and, I would add, delusional.

I DON’T BLAME CHINA

Trump Flip-Flops on Relationship

Blame is the core psychological posture for our President Know-It-All. The Donald sees himself as the only one without sin while everyone else has made all the mistakes that he must fix. In fact, he’s diminished America in front of world leaders by saying that we have been weak in the past. Trump’s need to position himself by self-promotion and boasting doesn’t make him more respected. It makes him small.

President Trump’s trade policy can be summed up like this, “You suckers have been given a free ride and, from now on, you assholes are going to pay more for everything.” If you open with an insult, how do you manage to muster any kind of esteem for your country or yourself? He paints us as ugly Americans to those all those watching him. I am truly ashamed of him.

China was one of the many whipping boys on the campaign trail for Donald Trump. He said they were raping us. Mexicans are rapists. Chinese are rapists. This is a disturbing common theme for Trump. Now, he blames everyone who has come before him in our country for such bad deals as he congratulates China while standing on their soil. He toasts them for taking advantage of us? What a strange faulty logic from a man who screamed for more than a year about how bad China was. Boy, he really showed them.

In a sense, Trump is setting up China’s President Xi Jinping as the good guy, so that he can get something from the Chinese leader. He wants Xi Jinping to stomp on North Korea and do his dirty work in the war of words with Kim Jong-un. Kim is not a leader, he is considered a god. Xi Jinping is a leader for life, surely Trump is more envious than respectful of both these men. In turn, they see Trump as a temporary inconvenience and a grumpy buyer of products. Trump will be gone long before either of these leaders melt into the earth they rule.

What we Americans must understand is that none of these world leaders respect Donald Trump. They laugh at what he says, but they are also cautious about his proposals. They know that what he says today can change at any moment. Where Trump wants to add ten thousand coal jobs, China has moved ahead of us in renewable energy jobs. According to Forbes Magazine, “China accounted for roughly one quarter of the world’s total $329 billion of new energy investment last year.” Why would any American President let this happen?

According to NPR, “In May, for example, our exports to China totaled $7 billion, and our imports from China totaled $29 billion. That is indeed a big deficit. But that $29 billion in imports is tiny compared with the overall size of the U.S. economy: Our economic output is well over $1 trillion per month.”

For America to turn this around, we would have to create companies and factories to make the products that are sold in US stores like Wal-Mart. Our manufacturing would be more expensive and the increased prices for those Made in America products would be passed along to the America consumer. Once again, the middle-class would be paying for corporate investment.

I used to buy shirts made in Wisconsin until we could get T-shirts for one-third the price from Vietnam. By the way, I didn’t change companies, they just moved their manufacturing. This is the reality of what happened to American products. When Trump claims that these companies will bring their money and manufacturing back to the USA after he lowers taxes, no one asks him, “Why would they do that?”

Why would a company spend so much money to build an infrastructure here? American companies already pay little or no rent for the buildings overseas and the workers are payed small wages with no healthcare or retirement insurance. Believing that US corporate management is more patriotic and profit-driven is false. It’s very much like the “trickle-down” theory that as rich people get more money they just naturally flow it to the middle and lower class. That has been proven WRONG so many times in history that it’s insulting to human beings to even suggest it.

When Trump is face to face with the leaders of countries he has dissed in the recent past, he shows a different face. Yes, Donald Trump is two-faced, which logically makes him a two-faced liar. That’s a fact.

I would suggest that when something negative comes up about trade in the near future, Trump will once again say bad things about China. When King Jong-un publishes another put-down of Trump or launches another ICBM, Trump will say Xi Jinping is not doing enough about Kim and that he will stick it to them with trade. Predictably, the parody president pageant continues.

Trump doesn’t need a Chief-of-Staff General babysitter. He needs a shrink. In the end, we all will realize that our great Orange Leader has actually made America less great. The problem is we don’t have a great leader we can plug-in, but we should surely should pull the plug on this one.

Elephant, Donkey & Jackass

Two Parties, No Leadership

Living in New York City, it was very convenient for Donald Trump to be a Democrat. When Trump saw no viable way to create a reform party, however, he decided to jump over to the red side of the realm. His hostile take-over of the Republican party made some people happy, but even though the insiders and old-line conservatives knew how risky he was, they remained silent. They deserve exactly what they got.

Trump found himself half-way around the world this week when tragedy hit a small Texas town. He dodged questions about gun control legislation by offering a position that if we had tough gun laws the good guy with a gun wouldn’t have been able to stop more carnage. Amazing how our great Orange Leader ignores the point that if we had better gun laws that were properly executed, we could have avoided the bloodshed in the first place. Of course, Trump doesn’t want to go up against the NRA. They buy ads for him. They have him in their pockets.

Analyze the words that have been coming out of the mouth of the 45th President of the United States during this “goodwill” visit to Asia, and you will think he is merely an arms salesman. And, of course, a good pitchman never tells the prospective buyer about the dangers of what he is selling.

Trump has no answer for gun violence in America and he has nothing new to say about how to resolve the North Korean challenge. He moderates in front of some audiences, while being all bravado and rude when addressing his base. Why would anyone believe what he says? One of the CNN pundits called him “vague,” which is code for he doesn’t say anything of value.

Like a true politician, the Donald thinks you will not remember his last lie if the new fabrication gets him re-elected. Like most soulless politicians, his inconsistencies are shadowed by the cult of personality effect. He tells his followers that elitists are bad, while being the ultimate elitist pig. Really, he gets two-scoops of ice cream, but everyone else in the room gets one.

Last night in Virginia and New Jersey, we learned that Democrats won their races for governor. It wasn’t because they were Democrats, as much as they presented a moderate choice against those Republicans who will never stand up to Trump. Local politics are local, and that means the personalities of those running matter most. Many people voted for Trump one year ago because they hated Hillary. Lots of Democrats are turning out in these state elections because they do not like Trump.

Americans are becoming complainers. We sit around and post our anger, angst and aggravation about the most banal and unimportant things online. We have the freedom to say whatever we want. Trump actually, in his actions and words, teaches people to speak out, act out and do stupid things. If Trump thinks he is getting too many negatives thrown at him, it’s his own fault. He’s set the bar and we are jumping over it.

As I have said before on these pages, all political parties use the same playbook. When in power, you try to ram through what you think is best. When the minority, you block anything the other party proposes. The dog chases its tail and gets hungrier doing it.

We know that both parties have elements of corruption and, if confronted will lie just like our President. In a perfect world there would be no parties, just people, but the infrastructure of government in this country has been shaped for a two-party system. Even Independents must declare with which party they will caucus. This forces independent thinking into a box.

You will hear the word “Repudiation” used to describe what happened in New Jersey and Virginia, but the real tipping point with Trump will come when Democrats win House and Senate seats. That is where the real power is but, so far, we haven’t seen the DNC make any bold statement or show any real marketing prowess. Donna Brazile’s book promotion may have created some more anti-Hillary sentiment, but she will never displace the top Clinton hater: Donald Trump. People have already forgotten her book.

What Trump tweeted once he knew that Ed Gillespie was going to lose in Virginia sums it up, “Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for…” Only a low human kicks a guy when he’s down. But what makes this rather insolent is the fact that Trump recorded a robocall for Gillespie. According to Politico, it goes something like this, “If you let Ralph Northam be governor, he will be a total disaster for your state. Northam is weak on crime, weak on immigration, and as your lieutenant governor, Northam has driven your economy right into a ditch.” Wow, maybe Trump doesn’t remember he recorded that pitch for the loser.

Even Breitbart blamed Trump for the losses because he’s not getting more done with Congress. If the Bannon people bankroll Alt-Right candidates to challenge incumbent Republicans in 2018, that could the reason more Democrats get elected.

In the end, historians will write that Donald J. Trump was more destructive than Teddy Roosevelt when, in 1912, he created the Bull Moose Party and cratered the Republican Party. But Teddy Roosevelt gave us protected lands and a grand national park system, while Trump is attempting to sell off those same parks and destroy the environment.

The Democrats desperately need to find a strong moderate who is articulate, intelligent and can give people the feeling that we are all in this together. Without a strong personality to bring us together as a nation, Trump will get a second term. That is unless the Donald gets convicted of some terrible treasonous blunder. If only Nixon was alive and could walk him through it.

NO APOLOGY, NO OFFENSE

Trump Declares His Intelligence

I’ve always thought people who never admit any error or wrong-doing must live such perfect lives; he said sarcastically. And of course, when asked if you have any regrets, most people can think about things that they would have done differently.

A simple apology is a regretful acknowledgment of an offense or failure. Even sub-human species in the world show a bit of regret and seek reconciliation. They exchange forgiveness for the well-being of the herd, or tribe. Even Baboons seem to have a feeling of relief when an offense has been put behind them with an apologetic effort or reparations payed. Here’s some of my food, now let’s move forward.

It amazes me that an adult human, Donald Trump, lives by some mythical pronouncement that he never has to apologize because he never does anything wrong. Equally as puzzling is what he said yesterday to reporters, “You know, people don’t understand. I went to an Ivy League college. I was a nice student. I did very well. I’m a very intelligent person.”

Most of the truly intelligent people I have met in my life never bragged about their smarts. Oh, yes, there was that one guy who was so impressed with himself he had the Mensa logo on his business card, but he was the exception. And, quite frankly, as smart as that guy thought he was, he was a horrible business person who had no people skills and made more mistakes than the average Joe. His father owned the company.

So, yes, intelligence may be overrated, but if Donald Trump is so smart why does he say and do such stupid things? I’m serious. Why would a grown man with the most powerful job in the world, with tons of money at his fingertips, ever expose his weaknesses? He is a perfect example of an insecure person who displays it every time he speaks. He does this so often that he really should apologize to every smart, secure person.

Warren Buffett enrolled in Wharton’s undergraduate program in 1947 and dropped out in 1949. He must have known something because he is number two on the list of Forbes richest for 2017, with Bill Gates at #1 and Jeff Bezos at #3. According to Forbes, “Trump’s net worth fell $600 million to $3.1 billion over the past 12 months. His net worth was estimated at $3.7 billion a year ago. This year, Trump was number 248 on the Forbes list, down from 156 in 2016.” But, he was a nice student; for whatever that is worth.

I’m sure the Donald has no regrets about his financial decrease, since he is now doing the “Lord’s work” as President of the free world. Being dwarfed by these American titans of business is nothing new. Gates, another drop-out, is worth $86 Billion and Buffet clocked in with $75.6 Billion. You have to wonder, what would Buffet be worth if he would have completed his education at Wharton? Jeff Bezos seems to have kept $72.8 Billion and Trump is going the other way. I’m sorry Donald. Can anything console such a smart man like yourself?

So, let’s move away from money because it’s not the only test of a man or woman’s astuteness. Most people reward problem solving in this world. Can you solve problems, or do you create them? When there is a crisis, Trump’s first gut reaction is, “Who can I blame?” That may seem smart to some, but in the end, it displays a desperate need to be right rather than solving problems.

Questioned whether he was involved in the decision on the mission where the four America’s lost their lives in Africa, Trump said to reporters (10-25-2017) “No, I didn’t, not specifically. I have generals that are great generals. These are great fighters; these are warriors. I gave them authority to do what’s right so that we win. That’s the authority they have. I want to win. And we’re going to win.”

Once the Commander in Chief detaches himself from the military, then he is no longer the top guy, militarily. Because Trump has given Generals carte blanche, does he realize that he has emboldened them? In some countries, the separation between the executive leader and the army leads to coups d’état and overthrown leaders. Surely, someone from Wharton BUSINESS School would know this, or maybe not?

If Trump was smart, he would have apologized to Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow and put that behind him. He could have lessened the suffering of Myeshia Johnson and helped heal all four of those families. It would have been a statement that all four soldiers were equal, truly a band of brothers.

The reasons our great Orange Leader cannot apologize are complex. Perhaps the act of apologizing represents a major threat to his basic sense of identity and self-esteem. Apologizing might lead to guilt, which could lead to shame.

Some people, especially liars, think that apologies could open the floodgates to further accusations and conflict. And in the darkest layers of a non-apologizer, admitting any wrong will relieve the other party of any culpability, thus putting them on even footing with the harmed human.

People with this malady often exhibit anger, irritability, and emotional distance and they are extremely uncomfortable with emotional closeness and vulnerability. Daddy didn’t touch him, Mommy always told him he was smart. Mommy said, “Shame on you” and Daddy gave him money.

What America needs is a role-model. We feel better when we admit the truth when we do something wrong. Trump seems to point out what other people have done incorrectly. If he wasn’t involved in a mission that killed four men, will be involved when more lives are in the balance? How many lives gets him in the decision? I’m sorry, but this man is not fit to be a leader. Who put him in charge? Who will apologize to America when things really go wrong? In such a case, there will be a lot of blame to go around.
