FEAR AND PARANOIA IN DC

Trump’s Final Border Solution

This past weekend (4-7-2019), brought another time frame in the disorderly and chaotic administration of Donald J. Trump. Something ominous happened, and we are now seeing the real problem with this presidency; it’s Trump himself.

With the dismissal of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen via a Trump Tweet, we see a fuming Chief Executive demanding that our border authorities continue to separate migrant children from their parents as a deterrent to crossings. Trump views US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as his own personal armies. And much like the “thought police” in George Orwell’s book 1984, or the TV dystopia Republic of Gilead as portraited in the Hand Maiden’s Tale, Trump thinks he can use these two forces to execute his agenda, control thought and push away his imaginary crisis.

Nielsen probably warned Trump that some of his actions would be at least unethical and, at worst, against the law. The Donald truly believes he soars above the law and can do whatever he wants. His final solution on the border will be to station the US Military, ICE and CBP soldiers with guns to shot those who want to enter our country. If you find this rather disturbing, think about this story.

In 2012, a CBP agent named Lonnie Swartz was accused of shooting through a border fence in Nogales, Arizona killing 16-year-old José Antonio Elena Rodríguez, who was on the Mexican side of the border. The agent fired 14 to 30 shots and ten of those bullets hit the teen. Swartz was acquitted of manslaughter. Trump knows this and so does Stephen Miller, the architect of Trump’s immigration rants. They have exacerbated a problem, massaged it into a crisis, and now are claiming the only solution is closing the border, which will cause massive economic harm to America.

All the bellicose verbiage from Trump has given the people movers in Mexico a firm sales pitch to make more money. They tell their Spanish speaking brothers and sisters that they must move now before Trump closes the border. Trump’s chest beating has promoted more immigrant crossings. Stupid.

Donald Trump doesn’t care about families seeking asylum. He has clearly stated he wants Congress to end asylum opportunities for immigrants. This is not new. In the summer of 1942, the US government turned away Jews who were seeking asylum from Nazi oppression and death. Some landed in the Dominican Republic. Others were simply sent back to face “their own problems.” Trump has gone all in with his anti-immigrant racist viewpoints and believes this will help him get a second term in office.

The rich irony here comes from the man who is manipulating Trump, Stephen Miller. According to Wikipedia, Miller grew up in Santa Monica, California. His mother’s ancestors had immigrated to the United States in the early 1900s from Belarus, escaping the anti-Jewish pogroms in the Russian Empire. When his great-grandmother arrived in the US in 1906, she spoke only Yiddish, the historical language of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe. However, despite the family’s poverty, as was typical of many immigrants, most of the family learned English, worked hard, and opened businesses in Pennsylvania that became successful—”the classic immigration success story”.

Mr. Miller obviously has no moral connection to immigrants because of his half-baked ideology that paints Trump as a messiah and the embodiment of a movement where one cannot question the authority of the president. How do we know this? Because he said so on TV. There is no reason to believe that Trump, if left alone, wouldn’t come to these same conclusions, but it really does feel a lot like Adolf Hitler, doesn’t it?

And just before we posted this article, news arrived that Trump has fired the head of the Secret Service. That person reports to the head of Homeland Security and was a Trump appointment. This is just another example of his terrible vetting, negligent management style and lack of planning and focusing his people.

I would suggest that we all keep our eyes on Donald Trump in the coming months. He will probably not deal with the truth in the Mueller report. That’s likely to spark another lie fest. Trump will stonewall Congress on his tax returns, which will prompt thinking Americans to ask the questions, “What is he hiding? Why did he say he would release them? Why does he keep saying that he cannot release his tax returns because he is under audit?” That, by the way, is a lie.

Trump is going to do some really bad things at the border and those who stay silent, will claim their place with those who stood by when the government interred Japanese Americans and those who were mute when we turned Jews away at our ports. Some people supported Richard Nixon’s lies and validated his immoral bombing of women and children in North Vietnam. For those who tell me that I should respect the president, I say, he’s not a king. He’s just a president. Why should we stay silent when a president crosses the line of law and order? Trump is a grand liar and a mentally ill dictator in the making.

COGNITIVE DISSONANCE DONALD

A goal without a plan is just a wish

If you have been paying attention, you know that little planning, vetting or reviewing takes place in the Trump Administration. It’s a one man show, with tap-dancing tweets into policy and the monkeys telling lies to keep their jobs. Many people have left this circus. More than 45 major players in the current administration have been shown the door or found their own personal escape from the burning dumpster.

Some medical professionals and armchair shrinks have suggested that Donald Trump is suffering from a major psychological malady. The one disorder most often mentioned is Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Trump may not be in the grip of this illness, but his public displays indicate that, at least, he is an artful actor mimicking all the disorder’s signs. He regularly makes the monkey on his back come out and dance for the public more than any reasonably calm personality ever would. He’s more than insecure.

And just as disturbing is the daily dishing of Trump’s “cognitive dissonance,” the state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes, especially as relating to behavioral decisions and attitude change. It doesn’t take a doctor, lawyer or social scientist to see this in action.

The idea of declaring that he is about to close the Mexican border, without any comprehension of the problems that would cause to our workforce and economy, is reckless. More than $600 billion in trade crosses our southern border and more than five million US jobs would be affected. One of the hallmarks of the Trump presidency is solving one problem by creating a second, bigger, problem. That’s when the cognitive dissonance kicks in.

We saw that with the defunding of the Special Olympics in the Education budget. Trump asked for the cut and got it. But when Congress and the general public pushed back, our esteemed president reversed the decision and claimed he was overriding his people. Really? You know, little Donnie constantly plays the blame game; it’s always someone else’s fault.

Now let’s move on to a more serious subject. The knowledge and belief in the power of the atomic weaponry of the United States is something that Trump has always waved around. I doubt that our current president has any understanding about the workings of a nuclear bomb. I’m sure the science, the physics, and the mathematics that went into this dreadfully dangerous weapon are way over his head. Donald Trump was not in Hiroshima or Nagasaki to see the wrath those two small bombs produced. He wasn’t born yet. Still, we must assume that Trump believes atomic bombs are real.

It’s beyond ironic that the same person who relies on the fear of nuclear annihilation to push around world leaders, says that scientists are wrong about Climate change and the effects of global warming. Trump is oblivious to the fact that within the last two years weather has caused more death and destruction than the 9/11 attacks. Even more bewildering is this man’s lack of empathy for American citizens who have suffered. His visits to sites of national disasters are merely photo-ops. Trump doesn’t care for anyone other than himself and those who kiss his big, fat ass.

Scientists and mathematicians will tell you that an owner of a gambling casino knows any roll of the dice, turn of the roulette wheel, or pull on the lever of a slot machine can deliver a major win for a customer. The odds are known, and a temporary loss for a casino owner is quickly erased by math and probability theory. It’s hard to imagine that someone could fail at a gambling casino, but Trump did. Now he will blame Atlantic City, or his vendors or something else, but a casino business is almost foolproof, unless a fool is in charge or something else is going on.

Donald Trump claims outside forces explain his failures over the years. The uncertainty of the universe is not his concern, he’s only interested in what happens in Trumpworld. Clearly, the outside force that is creating radical weather patterns, lost of life and property is definitely out of Trump’s comprehension and control.

Donald Trump’s thoughtless position against climate change is much like George W. Bush’s block of funding for stem cell research to please the evangelicals. Donald doesn’t see climate change, so it doesn’t exist. His denial of science is a misguided way of pleasing people who believe God’s will can prevail over any evil, including global warming. The Donald believes a little sweeping of the forest floor will prevent wildfires and that Puerto Ricans are too slow and dumb to use the aid that was already sent. He relies on the software in his own jet, but says that aviation science is getting too complicated.

Trump walked in front of the bright lights and cameras declaring that the Republican party will be known as the party of Healthcare on the very same day that he asked his Justice Department to support a declaration that Obamacare is unconstitutional. With no replacement envisioned, let alone written, he once again farted his cognitive dissonance into the air. Then one day later, he tweeted to the world, that healthcare will have to wait until after the 2020 election. Darting around, changing his mind, lying with ease and confusing even his own party, Donald Trump has no plan. He’s ineffective at leadership and a total failure at politics. His wishes aren’t plans and he has not even an inkling of how to make America great.

THIS JUST IN:

Perhaps the seas will part, and the air will clear when we see Donald Trump’s income tax returns and the full Mueller report. As the orange man claims on video that his father was born in Germany, it might be more prudent and helpful to America if his medical records were made public. Then we would know what is going on in his head.

MISINFORMED PEOPLE

The Trumping Down of America

Every year, thousands of buzzards flock to Hinckley, Ohio. They have been doing this since 1957. I have no idea why they go there, but it leads to today’s question. When will the flocks of the country arrive at a logical perspective on Donald J. Trump? When will Republicans become clear thinking and realize that it must be country above party?

Obviously, the country is divided. The percentages are roughly 33% for Trump and 66% against him. Interestingly, we have three viable cable news networks. Two-thirds of them are against Trump and one is directly connected to his brain to make money for an Australian media mogul and his sons. This is more like Game of Thrones than a democratic, functioning government. Winter is here and it came in the form of a constitutional crisis. Trump wants more power, and if the courts and Congress give it to him, we will lose the foundation of our government.

Imagine if a school decided that all its teachers would be replaced by one crazy D-student off his meds. The classes would erupt in chaos, law makers would be summoned to hearings and parents would sue the school system. There is one executive who would be held responsible for the mess. The President. This is a great analogy for what is happening in our country.

Trump has decided that he knows more than anyone else. He believes Putin more than dedicated intelligence officers and law enforcement. His desire to proclaim a boogieman at the border and use of fear to govern the people of the United States is disturbing. He’s never graduated to a real president and he continues to be a tacky politician blaming everything on others. An authentic leader rarely takes credit and assumes blame when justified. Harry Truman’s great slogan was “the buck stops here.” Trump puts the buck in his pocket.

A friend of mine was watching CNN over the weekend instead of her favorite, Fox News. She said, “Gee, all the news they report are bad things about Trump.” I chuckled and replied, “They are super serving their base.” That is the way to get high ratings today. Stephen Colbert was doing okay until he launched his comedic attacks on Trump, then his ratings soared. The lesson is there that more people don’t like Trump than like him. It’s plain math. Are we paying attention?

Donald Trump has single-handedly dumbed down a certain segment of our citizens and they will follow him off the cliff. Many misinformed Americans are walking around believing that it’s okay to “make nice” with Russia and Putin. WTF?

Too many people are getting more aggressive and mean in the way they treat others. This is a side effect of a mean, uncaring President who has little to no empathy for anyone. I, for one, have become more aggressive as well. While I’m not particularly proud of that, it’s my nature to argue with anyone who spreads lies and propaganda. Anyone should do the same when confronted.

One of Trump’s most ardent supporters is Anne Coulter. During the press conference about his phony emergency, Trump said, “I hardly know her, I haven’t spoken to her in way over a year, but the press loves saying ‘Ann Coulter.’ Probably if I did speak to her, she’d be very nice, but she’s off the reservation.” Remember, she wrote the book, In Trump We Trust.

To her credit, Anne shot back with this tweet, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech. Forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.”

Anne has a strange world view and isn’t a patriot, but she’s not dumb. She was confronted and properly responded. I may not be a Republican, but if someone like Mitt Romney or John McCain can articulate why their viewpoint makes sense, I listen. However, I no longer listen to Trump. He makes no sense whatsoever and it’s clear that he’s in it solely for himself. Even if Mueller were to “vindicate” him, he will still be a shitty president and a lousy leader.

Will the smart people from both sides come together and make the changes we need in America today? Will honest, hard-working Americans find comfort in knowing the top guy will be replaced by someone who doesn’t lie, or will they revolt and cast aside their values to walk downwind of the demagogue? How can they endure the stench?

And here is a question for the court. When Trump says something stupid, why do you not take him at his word? Why did the courts ignore what he said about the travel ban ruling when he was a candidate? Why did the high court, in a sense, sanction Trump’s lies? This will be the question in the high court soon. Will the justices hear the words of our founding fathers and intrepret their true meaning, or have they also been dumbed down by Trump’s rhetoric?

There is no crisis at the border. It’s the same problem we have had since the beginning of America. When Trump takes credit for making America so great that everyone wants to come here, he disrespects who we are as a people. It’s the freedom they are coming to, asshole. We have always been the place people wanted to call home. That’s how my family got here. Step aside, you big orange blowhard. We have the future to face, and America will be a greater, better place only when you are gone.

WHERE DID EMPATHY GO?

Trump’s Weakest Moment

When we need someone to lead us, he fails. When we need the President to feel the pain of the people, he stumbles. When he presents America to the world, he embarrasses. Donald J. Trump has no empathy for Americans. He has no empathy for anyone else in the world. It’s not America first. It’s Trump First.

With all the leaders of the world commemorating the end of World War I in Europe, Trump said the weather was too bad for him to travel to a cemetery where American soldiers are buried. All the other leaders went, but Trump sent retired General John Kelly in his stead. Once again, Trump was missing in action on the empathy front. One wonders if his bone spurs were acting up that day.

It takes more than my two hands to count the number of events that have taken place in America and the world these past 22 months where the President of the United States could have been a comforting presence, but with Trump all we have is a fatalist. What a terrible thing to say, even if it’s true.

With more than 30 people dead in California due to fires, our president decided to tweet this, “There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”

Really, this guy wants to blame “forest management” on the fires? Donald Trump has no knowledge about wildfires. They start, spread and devastate large areas because the land is too dry and the winds fan the flames. Wind and dry land are essential topics of the Paris Accord, but our Great Orange Leader will never make that connection. He would prefer to blame rather than help. Trump has no empathy.

Our president talks up first responders and police on the campaign trial, but he fails to understand their methods and challenges. This was the response from California Professional Firefighters President Brian K. Rice, “The president’s message attacking California and threatening to withhold aid to the victims of the cataclysmic fires is Ill-informed, ill-timed and demeaning to those who are suffering as well as the men and women on the front lines.” Or to put in another way, IT’S CLIMATE CHANGE, idiot!

Trump thinks he still on a reality TV show where the host is supposed to get laughs and applause. It might be a game to Trump, but when people die it’s no longer funny. If Trump doesn’t declare the fires in California a national disaster, he is negligent of duty and should be impeached. You cannot withhold funds for recovery because you don’t like how the people voted.

I am getting weary of those supporters who cannot see Trump’s lack of empathy and poor leadership. They tell me my rhetoric is not helpful and that we will never to be able to repair the divide by attacking the President. They keep saying, “Hey, look at the economy.” And I say what I have said from the day he was elected, “He’s bad for America. He embarrasses America.” They just don’t get it, but time and history will show that his destructive, unhelpful and conspiratorial comments have made America less safe and less “great.” America deserves a better leader.

MALE CHAVENISM ON TRIAL

The Lingering Stench of Trump

Some people just don’t how to pick people. Donald J. Trump will go down in history as a person who assembled the wrong people for the wrong reasons, then did everything he could to get in their way and make things worse.

The latest flaw in the Washington slaw is the process that Trump has brought to the selection of Supreme Court picks. He jobbed out the real work to the ultra-conservative Heritage Foundation, without any regard for vetting. What a mess we now find ourselves in. It shows that the good-old-boy network sees only the good in whatever boy they fancy.

The headline blazing across my local paper reads: KAVANAUGH ACCUSER COMMITS TO HEARING, while my phone is buzzing the bulletin: SECOND ACCUSER COMES FORWARD. The new allegation comes from one of Kavanaugh’s classmates from his early years at Yale University. This basketball lover and sports fan pledged a fraternity at Yale that was less about intellectual endeavors and more about “party-party” drinking and hanging with the ladies. So, now we have one accuser from high school and one from his undergraduate level. Can law school be far behind?

There was something born out of the women’s movement in America that labeled certain men male chauvinist pigs. In the locker room, there was a lot of “boy talk” that involved scoring in several ways. It was important to win on and off the court. But before the gray haired, over-the-hill gang on the Senate Judiciary Committee rolls out the “boys will be boys” excuse for these alleged infractions of decency, we must wait for the “girls” on the same committee to stir up enough dust to make Thursday’s hearing must watch TV.

In this #MeToo era, will male chauvinism get acquitted or will America throw the book at the person who really deserves it, Donald Trump? Trump has walked away from similar allegations scot-free. Without proof of the Donald’s actions, we have only his words on the Access Hollywood tape. We heard his belief that because he was a celebrity he could grab women, any woman, in the crouch. This proves his chauvinism and pushes him into the pig club, yet some of the country still elected him President.

The people who most want Brett Kavanaugh on the high court are the same people who gave the Donald a pass on his pussy grabbing. The evangelicals in America should pray that God will have forgotten their misjudgment on this ghastly, horrible President when judgement day comes.

The suburban, educated women in America are not going to take this malpractice in the highest office in the land. No, they will try to vote for some control over this clown car of a presidency. It’s now clear why the Republicans were rushing a vote in the Senate to confirm Kavanaugh. They were worried about more women coming forward. This Bill Cosby – Harvey Weinstein time in space shows we are getting better at public power to moderate government, but it cannot stop with this loser Kavanaugh. There is an orange cancer on the head guy of this presidency.

The Bob Woodward book FEAR demonstrates in exactitude the ineptness and lack of thoughtful direction in this White House. The problem is Trump, and nothing will ever get better while he remains the President of the United States.

There are moments in history that attempt to force us backward. How we respond to those unnecessary divisions and diversions is a real shining light on the hill moment. We either wake up to that fact that these old white men on Capitol Hill want our daughters to be controlled and used by men, or we sit back and close our eyes to bad people. We need to be better than this.

Our daughters know that sexual misconduct is not okay. Our daughters will rise to this occasion and take a stand. Maybe treating women poorly is not a high crime, but, in my book, attempted rape and indecent exposures are, at least, misdemeanors. Funny how quickly Al Franken was sent packing, while the Republicans enable Donald Trump and his lack of proper judgement. They see only THEM, not the American people. Trump focuses on his base, while the rest of America is finally seeing he’s an idiot.

PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES

Trump’s Enemies List Takes Shape

Consider the old saying, “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”  It basically means that you shouldn’t be a hypocrite. You shouldn’t be accusing someone of something if you do it yourself. But in the case of Donald J. Trump, it takes on another meaning. It has to do with using media and what using media means in the modern world.

If you are being recorded, there could be embarrassments and off-color remarks, or even racist ramblings, that might come back to bite you. In fact, the Donald has been living in a glass house all his life. And Trump’s lack of understanding about his own history and that of all his minions is astounding. I am convinced that if they could hold that history in their little hands for even a microsecond, they wouldn’t know what to do with it.

Richard Nixon had an enemies list. Donald Trump has an enemies list. My only question is how do I get on it? I want to be a registered Trump hater. But seriously, when Sarah Huckabee Sanders read the list on national TV yesterday, my memory took me back. It happened to be the same day that I watched the brilliant new Spike Lee film BlacKkKlansman, in which the final scene contrasts the cross burnings of the KKK in the early 1970s with the Neo-Nazi tiki torches of Charlottesville, Virginia one year ago. For someone who lived through both those aspects of American life, Trump has become Nixon.

So, here is the list:  John O. Brennan, former director of the CIA, James R. Clapper Jr., former director of national intelligence, James B. Comey, former FBI director, Michael V. Hayden, former director of the National Security Agency and former CIA director, Andrew G. McCabe, former deputy FBI director, Bruce G. Ohr, former associate deputy attorney general, Lisa Page, former FBI attorney, Peter Strzok, former FBI agent, Susan E. Rice, former national security adviser and Sally Q. Yates, former deputy attorney general.

There is not much that the Great Orange Leader can do to these people, without causing more stones to be thrown at his house but coming out and telling the world your enemies list is really an idiotic thing to do.

They do understand that Nixon had to resign, right? They do know that the reason the press works day and night to discredit the current president and lunatic in power is because he’s dangerous to democracy, right? Actually, no, they don’t get it. Sarah Sanders might as well be Joseph Goebbels.

Trump has managed to mind-fuck some Congressional representatives and some middle Americans into believing that the press is the enemy of the people. We are at a breaking point. When the tape of Trump saying the N-word comes out, he will seem more like one of the flawed characters in BlacKkKlansman rather than a real person. He’s just doing a show for you America, and you may not like the ending. If Trump wins again, he will never leave office. He will simply slip one of his kids into the throne. This show needs to be canceled. The ratings are just okay.

With the State of Pennsylvania revealing the names of hundreds of priests who abused children at the hands of the Catholic Church, can we really trust anyone? Does that lying son-of-a-bitch in the White House deserve our faith? And for those who grant him permission to abuse his power and stain the presidency of our great country, you will be judged harshly when the final report comes in. Yes, you too, Christian evangelicals.

Abuse of power comes in little bits of wafer and wine, but then escalates to real damage. You cannot know the destruction until you see things destroyed. The people on Trump’s enemies list are exceptional and they will NOT be intimidated by a fake president. If Trump had his way, he would “lock them all up” to please his foaming mob, but the rest of us will not stand silent.

There are little cracks in that glass house. They aren’t quite visible to the common man who voted for what they thought was an uncommon president, but some know now that they made a terrible mistake. Others keep talking about the economy, which will end up going up and down for reasons far removed from Washington. Long before this is all over, we will see taxpayers bearing the brunt of Trump’s tariffs and trade wars.

As I peek into that glass house, I see a very disturbed person. Trump hates America. He’s happy kissing Macron in Paris, waving swords in Saudi Arabia and pressing the flesh with Putin, always meeting him more than halfway. Trump tends to put down everything in America he didn’t create. He disrespects a dying Senator and war hero and has no experience for real fighting and sacrifice. He doesn’t care about who we are as Americans.

I have only one piece of advice, screw the resistance. We don’t need to resist him, we need to stop him. We need to launch the biggest rock imaginable at that glass house. Trump doesn’t need to be exposed by Omarosa, he needs to be taken out by the power of the people. He’s wasting time tweeting and repeating, and his news cycle is done. Donald Trump is treading on America. It’s time to take our country back, patriots.

THE BLACK WIDOW

No Trust in Trumpland

On the campaign trail, Donald Trump continually talked about having only the best people around him if he was elected president. Now we see how many people have left for a variety of mostly bad reasons. So, there’s one of the promises he smashed to bits.

The White House has a problem on their hands. After they dismissed Omarosa Manigault from the administration, she spent the next nine months writing a book about Trump. The book is titled Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House. I doubt if I will spend the money or take the time to read this book, but there is a brilliant marketing ploy going on here that will damage the Donald more than the book.

16GB Digital Voice Pen Recorder

Omarosa recorded many conversations during her tenure and she’s dropping these little tidbits directly on the head of the reality star in the White House. The first recording that Ms. Manigault released was her firing by General John Kelly. This took place in the Situation Room and it might as well have been CNN’s Situation Room. In what is supposed to be a totally secure area she recorded her dismissal behind closed and locked doors. Then she released a tape of her call to the President where he wouldn’t take the blame for firing her, claiming that Kelly acted on his own. Isn’t that double lying?

She claims she was threatened and asserts that the reason she recorded conversations at her job is because everybody in the White House lies, including the President. She wanted to have a record of what she said. Like Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, everyone wanted to protect themselves from the head liar. None of this is surprising, but it does verify how dysfunctional things are in Trumpworld.

One of the best tweets in this Omarosa-gate conspiracy was from Preet Bharara, the former United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, “It is maybe the accidental self-inoculating genius of Donald Trump that in surrounding himself for decades with hard-core thugs, crooks, charlatans, cheats & liars, if and when they finally turn on Trump their lack of credibility continues to serve Trump.” On the side of clarity, Bharara was told by Trump that he wanted him to stay in his position in the Southern District of New York, but then fired him. That would make Donald Trump a two-faced liar.

Omarosa is playing the race card by calling the President of the United States a racist. Hate to break the news to you, Ms. Manigault, but please tell us something we don’t already know. If we have him on tape saying the N-word I have to ask, is that worse than “grabbing pussy?” We already know that Trump has conned the evangelicals, who would have to take a position if the tape is released, but the far right, especially those who cling to a white Nationalism persuasion, won’t care.

Trump’s disregard for the significance or power of women is notorious. If he thinks he can grab them and they will never grab back, he is mistaken. The network of terror he inflicts on people is usually followed by a cadre of lawyers who go after those people who get in his way. He cannot do that as easily while President. The web of deceit this man and his associates have woven around the truth is an attempt to cut off the air supply to anyone who discredits this fake president.

He doesn’t realize that his deadly game of vengeance could have driven us to war with North Korea, and his misaligned priorities have certainly driven a wedge between the United States and our allies. His angry tantrums and obsessive sickness never to abandon his reckless promises from the campaign have driven us to a real trade war. He could have achieved some of his trade goals without upsetting the apple cart. He will have no answer for the farmers and manufacturers in this country who will be hurt by the tariffs.

Omarosa has certainly gotten Trump’s attention. Look what came out of his silly little hands today (8-13-2018), “Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard really bad things. Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me – until she got fired! While I know it’s “not presidential” to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible. Sorry!”

Now I don’t want to give this dingbat that Kelly fired any credibility, but the stupid motherfucker in the Oval office is the reason she was there. He admits that in his tweet. He says she begged for a job and he said, almost referencing that it was against his best judgement (whatever the hell that is), that he hired her anyway. He shows the world that he is a bad judge of character, and that alone should disqualify him from being president.

Omarosa was on the job for a year, well long enough for Trump to know that he had made a mistake. Why did he wait so long? Was it because she is African-American? I don’t know about you, but anyone making $179,000 a year out of taxpayer bucks ought to have a good reason to be there.

Once again, Trump has exposed his incompetence. One might ask what the hell Omarosa did at the White House. Well, she was Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison. Now, with each tape she releases she sure is doing her job of liaising with the public. Some say the lady has dozens of tapes in her purse. Keep them coming Omarosa, for this rich tabloid material further proves what a low-life lying son-of-a-bitch Donald Trump really is.


SIMPLY EXPRESSING HIS OPINION

Can Trump Ever ‘Put up, or Shut up?’

Donald Trump’s words and actions are enough to embarrass all 44 presidents that came before him, even Nixon. Rudy Giuliani is a disgrace to every lawyer and prosecutor in the land. And Sarah Huckabee Sanders is complicit with an array of lies and misinformation that proves that she is part of a major coverup. There I said it.

Most smart people in America know that our President lies. Experts in the legal field have made it very clear that the diversionary tactics of the Donald are not going to hold up in a court of law. It seems that these goofballs have been lying about everything, including what the law says about collusion and conspiracy: “If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.” This is 18 U.S. Code § 371 – Conspiracy to commit offense or to defraud United States. Most judges would be hard pressed to say that any conspiring by someone in the Trump campaign to “affect” the outcome of a national election would not be a crime.

And while we are at this legal language part, let’s look at 18 U.S. Code § 1503 – Influencing or injuring officer or juror generally, which was what Trump did yesterday (8-1-2018) with this tweet to the Attorney General. The statue states clearly: “Whoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, endeavors to influence, intimidate, or impede any grand or petit juror, or officer in or of any court of the United States, or officer who may be serving at any examination or other proceeding before any United States magistrate judge or other committing magistrate, in the discharge of his duty, or injures any such grand or petit juror in his person or property on account of any verdict or indictment assented to by him, or on account of his being or having been such juror, or injures any such officer, magistrate judge, or other committing magistrate in his person or property on account of the performance of his official duties, or corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be punished as provided in subsection.” The bottom line is you can get ten years in jail for breaking this law.   

What Trump tweeted yesterday might not make his base nervous, but a skilled prosecutor might conclude that our Great Orange Leader is getting closer and closer to breaking the law, “This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!”

The mentally limited Giuliani said that it wasn’t an order, because Trump used the word “should” rather than “must.” Rudy didn’t reference the fact that the President did use the words, “right now” which could be interpreted as more of an order. If I said you should do something right now, the “right now” mean NOW!

Sarah Sanders claimed that it was NOT an order, but just the President expressing his opinion. Well, there you have it folks, we must have someone tell us when something Donald Trump says is “just an opinion” — like assholes, everyone has one — or Trump’s official statements. This one certainly did smell like a threat.

When Sanders says, “The president has made his views very clear” we all must just wonder what part of oxymoronic does she not get here? Giuliani, a New Yorker, like Trump, thinks he can slap the Special Counsel with the old poker yarn, “Put up or shut up” but would he ever say that to a judge? The disrespect for law and order by this former Mayor is agonizing. He’s become such a bottom-feeder, so much for legacy.

The latest headline on CNN says that TRUMP IS IN A DARK SPACE. And he should be. He cannot keep asking for this investigation to conclude, without comprehending that it cannot end without him sitting down with Robert Mueller. Could Trump be that stupid not to understand that he is NOT ABOVE THE LAW?

This is what we have, a businessman who thinks he can manipulate the press and opinions, intimidate judges and officers of the court and figure out loopholes around whatever gets in his way. When he says that America is tired of this investigation, he is correct. But be careful about what you ask for Mr. President. The end of this investigation could be the end of your presidential fantasy. All reality TV shows end, eventually.

TRADER OR TRAITOR

Trump’s Iceberg is Melting

As the blistering heat of one thousand blowtorches makes its way across America, leaving fires and floods in its wake, we hear nothing about these demonic occurrences from the commander and chief of America. As mother nature plays out her nasty dark side, there is the smell of revenge and the odor of partisanship wafting out of the orifice of power in the nation’s capital.

Somewhere in a small Midwest town, a farmer sits on top of this year’s soybean crop and wonders why he cannot count on China to pay a healthy profit for his yield. He now questions what seemed to be such a certain bet placed on a businessman from New York. Could it really be true that he was wooed by big talk which eventually took the shape of a retaliatory trade war that would bring him to his knees?

And now we get the news that Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, is saying that candidate Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton. This, comes from CNN, a source our Great Orange Leader condemns as “Fake News.” Are people perhaps feeling more confident to leak damaging information and data to that one network because CNN has become the apparent nemesis of the Donald? Is it coincidence that this is the same network his Justice Department appears to be punishing by stopping it from being part of an AT&T merger, even after a judge has found in favor of the deal?

All this talk of deal making and deal doing may be lost on the millions of people who voted for Donald Trump and are now seeing his rabid nationalism affect their daily bread. The world has left Trump and his ass-kissing experts in a heaping, stinking pile of America First for their well-established and connected globalism. All the clothing that Donald and Ivanka peddled in America was, in fact, made in other countries. In business they are globalists while in politics they are xenophobes. Ask the dozens of people who lost their jobs to yet another failing enterprise this family has shuttered. The Trumps walk away with all the money leaving others to pay for it.

Americans are strong-willed and sometimes blind, but once you take money out of their family budget to pay for “long-term” solutions, they get nervous. They see only next week’s grocery bill. The audacity of asking the citizens to be patient while you play your games with world powers is imprudent at best, and downright dastardly at worst.

The echo chamber on all the late-night comedy shows and news networks, except Fox News, reverberates that we have a liar for a president, ha! ha! ha! But the joke must be on us. We do see that Trump is being forced to fix what he broke, right? The meeting the other day with the President of the E.U. was nothing short of remarkable.

Within seven days, the President of the United States insulted the members of NATO, said that Europe was a “foe” and accused them of raping America. Now, he stands with Europe to work on repairing the damage his frothy little round mouth created. What a waste of 280 characters on Twitter, let alone the world’s largest economy.

When the final chapter on Donald Trump is written it will not be the story of a decisive leader who made America great. It will be a sad tale about a damaged man having not a grain of talent for real leadership, but a true gift of entertaining closed-minded people. The word “Statesman” will never be uttered in the whole book on Trump. A book, it looks like the Special Counsel is about to throw at him.

You see, in the land of the brave and the home of the free no man is above the law. And those conservative congresspeople who are attempting to wage war against the Justice Department are engaging in nothing short of obstruction of justice. By introducing a resolution calling for the impeachment of Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, they are attempting to stop the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Or worse, they may be trying to seize evidence in the case to give to Trump. That would make them parties to high crimes and misdemeanors. Do we smell impeachment in the air?

If I was arguing a case against the 45th President, I would create a matrix of guilt. Using the recordings from Michael Cohen, Trump’s tweets, meetings and timelines, along with the public statements that Donald Trump has made, I would show a definitive amalgamation of obstruction of justice, treason, jury tampering, witness intimidation and, oh yeah, violation of the Logan Act and the Emoluments Clause. This just in from NPR, “Federal District Judge Peter Messitte denied the Department of Justice’s request to dismiss a case brought by the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia. The Emoluments Clause bars any president from personally profiting from his dealings with foreign governments — or even U.S. state governments.”

Dumbfounded Donald could be made turn over his income tax returns as part of this case and the whole world will see the money trail. Will it lead to Putin and Russia or is Trump just a two-bit whore hustler who buys off porn stars while avoiding payment of his fair share of taxes, like most rich guys? He thinks he’s a wunderkind trader, but it appears that he’s nothing more than a narcissistic traitor. Mueller will turn up the heat and we know that something has got to explode. We have a lying, conniving criminal in the White House and it will be interesting to see who steps up in Congress to call for impeachment.

Michael Cohen is no choirboy, but he surely looks like he’s President Trump’s “John Dean,” with the truth in his hoister and recordings in his pockets. We gonna have ourselves another “Watergate.” Trump was right on that one.
