TEAR GAS AND TARIFFS

Trump’s Punchbowl Dirty Deeds  

The very vulgar saying, “a turd in the punchbowl” applies to Donald Trump in most of what he says and how he acts. It means something or someone that spoils, ruins, or needlessly complicates a situation or circumstance. One could also say, that a person doing such a horrible thing was being a disagreeable nuisance or source of irritation. The President sure does what he wants without the understanding or care of how it might hurt people. He makes up his own analysis and answers without hearing from experts or opposite points of view.

When Donald Trump wanted to fulfill one of his campaign promises to get back at China and Europe, he ordered tariffs on steel and aluminum. When Trump created a fear of South Americans coming to the US-Mexico border, he got his wish. Young men and families attempted to cross the border into San Diego. And in true form, Trump border army launched tear gas and mustard bullets into the crowds without any regard for the women and children. One can argue the old “human shield” argument, but when Trump lied about three border agents being injured, he proved once again that he will lie about anything.

When asked about the latest mandated government report on the affects and possible results of climate change, he simply said, “I don’t believe it.” At this point, we don’t really know what he believes in. He says he believes in America and America First, but when his actions directly harm the economy, the workers and the international reputation of the United States, his actions seem like a big joke, rather than serious governance.

He surrounds himself with “Yes” men and women who sometimes, against their own judgement, will agree with him and push out the lies that support the most outrageous statements. Some in government, knowing they will be held to a certain standard by oversight and ethics lawyers, will tell the truth. And then the truth is buried.

When the smoke clears on this administration, we will fully comprehend the damage that this fool has brought to our country. The shame of those who disagree but do not speak will not be forgotten. With their $800 suits and TV makeup, Senators and Representatives have done nothing to stop this rogue president and his disregard for the rule of law. Donald Trump is just another self-serving political whore without any moral conviction or patriotic spine. He only works toward his own agenda without the long-term implications being considered. He also is lying about how he is losing money by being president. If that is true, why wouldn’t he fire his sons running the company?

Sure, Trump can get press showing soldiers lobbing tears gas into Hispanics at the border, but his plan just might backfire. If Mexico holds the immigrants and works toward giving them jobs and housing near the border, Mexico could have a new low wage work force that will eventually hurt the US job market? Time will tell.

But the man who says he has a plan to make everything better and create millions of jobs is now faced with the inevitable reality, that US corporations are capitalistic organizations that make decisions based on data, not the whim of a man with a big tie. We saw what General Motors did this week, and we know that even though they won’t admit it openly, the tariffs that Trump imposed will cost that company a billion dollars.

A recent article showed tons of soy beans rotting in storage because of Trump’s actions with the Asian markets. When does someone suggest more talking with trading partners and less outright antagonistic bullshit and tweet storms.

The fact that Donald Trump can only disagree makes him a president who cannot work toward someone else’s good idea.

He has created a vacuum and slipped something into the punchbowl that no one wants. Our Great Orange Leader is his own worst enemy. The latest poll shows that 60% disapprove of him and only 38% think he’s a great leader. He says that there may be some short-term pain, but why would any worker have to fear that they might lose their job? The stock market is doing so well, why wouldn’t those companies take care of their workers? Oh yeah, Trump doesn’t care about the workers. He only says he does.

REVELING IN IGNORANCE

GOP: Suicide by Trump

It was sad, and it all came so quickly and unexpectantly. The Republican party was the victim of a hostile take-over. Donald Trump’s populist message during the 2016 Presidential campaign seem to stick to the bottom feeders in Congress. The more reputable Republican members of the House and Senate went along with departures from the GOP norms just because they wanted to win. But what did the win mean?

Now that the smoke has cleared, and most thinking Republicans know that Trump is doing everything he promised, they have no time to reassess their views. They know they lost the house because of Trump and some know it’s only a matter of time that Trump will help diminish their majority in the Senate. The Republican party is in a death spiral without addressing the crucial question, “What does the party stand for?”

Let’s look at some facts. According to the Budget Office of the United States of America, as of October 28, 2018, debt held by the public was $15.8 trillion and intragovernmental holdings were $5.8 trillion, for a total or “National Debt” of $21.6 trillion. And the Treasury, under Steven, Mnuchin announced that for the first time in history, the national debt surpassed $21 trillion this week. This means that under Trump the debt might increase $2.1 trillion. That’s sure different than what President Trump predicted, but in matters of debt and bankruptcy, he hasn’t been a “stable genius” in those areas in the past.

We know that Republicans traditionally believed in “limited government” but with our Great Orange Leader, we seem to have given the President more power, diminished the responsibility of the Congress and tarnished the reputation of the FBI, Secret Service and the Supreme Court. Republicans are not the group to stand up to Trump, in fact, they are afraid of him. Under this “Republican” the party platform is totally ignored.

In Congress, Republicans are 99.3% Christian and .7% Jewish. They have done nothing to court Hispanic voters. They support prayer in public schools and tend to be the party that most lobbyists recruit after they leave office. They have left their credo of free market economics and have enabled Trump to use tariffs and sanctions as retribution rather than smart economic governance. They may be celebrating the move to add more conservatives to the Supreme Court, but in key decisions they might find that good judges don’t bend the law, they follow it.

While there are those who say this is all good for the Republican party, they obviously are counting on Trump’s celebrity and rabid fans to push them into office. But as the demographics of America change, the numbers don’t look good. White, well-educated suburban women are turning away from the divisive rhetoric. The way Trump has treated women, isn’t sitting well with WOMEN.

Another area of concern for Republicans is Trump’s constant demonizing minorities, immigrants and people who he doesn’t like. His hate and vitriol have made it impossible for any support from African-Americans, Hispanics and Muslim Americans. He has created an US and THEM mentality. His roaring crowds at political rallies give the President a false sense of security. We know he doesn’t know global or domestic economics, but continually does things to force a referendum on his radical ideas rather cautiously steer the trade ship through the critical waters. The stock market bounces around like his disparate comments. One day it’s up, the next day, it’s all wrong. Trump has such an unbeautiful mind.

I know, as a patriotic America, I should care that the GOP hold its ground and assert its will, but it’s too late. They helped elect an unemphatic political whore and there is nothing they can do about it. Their leaders won’t let them. They are just riding out this storm, hoping that something positive comes. If your party has an anchor around its ankle, you can only tread water so long. Some have already quit and would rather walk away from Trump and his family of goons. Some are faced with committing political suicide. May they rest in peace.

And now this just in from CNN, President Donald Trump said that he will not take strong action against Saudi Arabia or its Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the death and dismemberment of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Donald J. Trump is a man without morals and he has blood on his hands.

Today we also learned that daughter Ivanka claims she didn’t know there was a problem using her personal email for government business. Obviously, she hasn’t been listening to her father for the last three years. She is either just as ignorant as her father, or the Trump family thinks they are above the law. LOCK THEM ALL UP.

MOST IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Fewer Talking Points and More Votes

If you have followed this blog over the last two years, you know we’ve been very critical of the present administration and full disclosure, Donald J. Trump becoming president was the reason we started whywait4years.com, but let’s focus on you.

If you wonder what you can do about this mess, it’s simple. You need to get out of bed tomorrow and make your way to your polling place and VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

If you want to keep the Donald in check, you must vote for as many Democrats as possible. Even though we do subscribe to the truth that ALL ELECTIONS ARE LOCAL, this election is more about stabilizing the whole republic. If there was ever an election to vote straight ticket, this is the one. The only way to control Trump and this madness is to put as many Democrats as possible in office.

If you are just a little uneasy about the rash decisions of Donald Trump, vote Democrat. If you have some fantasy of impeachment to cure America of this politician con-man, vote Democrat. And finally, if you don’t want Congress to continue to back the monster in the White House, then vote for people who will stand up to this reckless President.

To all those Jill Stein, Gary Johnson voters, did you learn your lesson? To all those Bernie Sanders frustrated non-voters, shame on you. To those who view this as “just a midterm election,” you are naïve. EVERYONE NEEDS TO VOTE THE SYSTEM. And the same thing I said in 2016, I say today, “a vote for an indie or write-in” is only giving the person you don’t want a path to winning. You don’t want bad people telling you what to do and attempt to replace our America with a racist-tinged ideology, then you need to get your butt out and vote!

It’s time to VOTE!

CHARLOTTESVILLE TO PITTSBURGH

Trump Never Gets It Quite Right

When something bad happens, there are people we can count on to give us sympathy, administer some empathy and help us through a tragedy. Then there are people who we can never count on when times get rough and friends just can’t be found. I think most of us would rather be alone instead of hearing the blaming and gaming of a soulless politician.

As the climax to a dark and terrible week of targeted pipe bombs across the nation and innocent people being gunned down in Pittsburgh by a murderous ingrate, we have been challenged once again. Is hate winning?

When Donald Trump read his prepared response, he said that anti-Semitism and violence has no place in America. However, he has never said that Neo-Nazis, White Nationalists and the failing KKK have no place in the United States. He never confronts them with his words. His lack of indictment of hate groups is reprehensible. It feels like he is colluding with them. He refuses to define the cause of the hate or ever think about his role in this movement.

This is what we get from this disgusting President, “The Fake News is doing everything in their power to blame Republicans, Conservatives and me for the division and hatred that has been going on for so long in our Country. Actually, it is their Fake & Dishonest reporting which is causing problems far greater than they understand!”

Blaming the media for what is happening in America is worse than deflection, it’s unamerican. The media will always ask important questions. If our leaders’ answers make no sense, the press should and will simply keep asking. To be a true statesman, a leader must be transparent and tell the truth. Trump fails this test time and time again.

If the Donald was smart, he would realize that his “blame deflection” is teaching Americans to seek a boogieman rather than the truth. When Trump doesn’t have a fact to back up his outrageous points, he invents one. When our citizens are hurt in some way, Trump’s finger pointing prevents the proper processing of sad and demoralizing information. Why would the President of the United States talk about the death penalty before anyone was charged in the shooting of eleven people in Pittsburgh? Didn’t he preach recently about Brett Kavanaugh being innocent before being proclaimed guilty? At best, Trump is the most inconsistent President, ever!

Trump’s words after mass shootings and hate crimes proves he lacks the ability to communicate a message of reason and hope. He just wants to throw the person in the electric chair and get back to those rallies with his adoring fans. He lacks compassion for those suffering and he doesn’t get that his words have given these actors their motivation.

It is true that a crazy hater did fire bullets into a group of Republicans practicing baseball, but that doesn’t answer this question. What do we do about it? When questioned about gun control, Trump quickly promotes the tired NRA messaging. There should have been a guard to defend the Temple in Pittsburgh. More guns. Good guys with guns. Semi-automatic guns, like the AR-15 used in this most recent massacre, will always do more damage and cause more death than a hand-gun. Can we at least start there?

It’s not a coincidence that the hate-filled social media posts of the alleged shooter in Pittsburgh used the word “invaders” instead of “illegals” to describe the people in the caravan walking through Mexico. The alleged murderer may have criticized Trump for being a “globalist,” but the fact Trump vigorously declared himself a “nationalist” the other day sent a message to White Nationalists that Trump is their guy. When does Donald Trump become “our guy.” You know, the president for all Americans.

And finally, on the way back from a rally on the same day eleven Jewish souls were lost, Trump’s priority was the criticizing of a baseball manager. Look at this tweet, “Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings. It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever(s) who get shellacked. 4 run lead gone. Managers do it all the time, big mistake!”

REALLY? When a whole city was mourning, this was Trump’s focus? He just had to blame someone for something. I am sure Dave Roberts, the L.A. Dodger’s manager, would never tell Trump how to do his job. We know that Trump hates anyone telling him what he needs to do. As anyone can clearly see, there is no empathy in the Trump White House.

DEMONONIZATION MATTERS

Trump’s Vitriol Being Acted Out

We have been writing this blog since Donald J. Trump became president, and in many of these missives we have warned that when an extreme ideolog stirs up his base, bad things happen. Trump rallies show us just how violent people can get when they are urged to hate journalists or anyone with a different opinion. With Trump holding the highest office in the land, we seem to have a domestic problem. It’s almost as if Russia has their hand in this great divide of America. It’s exactly what they would execute if they had the power. Maybe they have the power.

President Trump has multiple personalities and all of them lie. When confronted, he tries to be “presidential,” but he continually tweets messages of negativity and hate. The Donald has his enemies list, and it’s become apparent today that the crazies are attempting to gain his love by doing bad things to those on that list. When someone sends bombs to former presidents, actors and news networks, we are at a serious crossroad. Something must be done.

Trump’s harsh rhetoric, stupid conspiracy theories and hate speeches have pushed the fringe element to the edge. It’s time for Congress to comprehend that Donald Trump is bad for America. Trump has never even started to bring America together. Instead, he has divided us and turned basic traditions, customs and laws upside down. His thoughts and actions are not good for our country. He mocks decent conduct and has abandoned the respect and responsibility of the office. He has not fulfilled his pledge to protect all Americans.

We will learn more about the pipe bombs being sent to former presidents, movie stars and a news network, but Trump has can no longer brag about the lack of terrorism in America since he was elected. That was just another lie. STOP AND THINK ABOUT IT; the targets of these acts are Trump’s targets. The enemies of this terrorist appears to be the same people Trump doesn’t like.

I would urge everyone to google this reference in Wikipedia. I cannot believe that I would even think about what Hitler did to gain power when we are being attacked on our soil. I do not trust Trump and I am saddened to think he would ever promote this kind of activity.

We need to make sure that Trump is not complicit. We need to find out if these evil people are being motivated by Trump and, if so, they need to be condemned by the President. Trump has got to stop the vile demonization of Democrats and unnecessary bullying of our free press. If he cannot stop weaponizing his position, he should be impeached. He is inciting violence. And now we have proof.


WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

Trump is the problem

I hate elections and campaigns. For one thing, it’s all the posters on every corner which, under law, cannot be taken down until after the election. Then there’s the ton of TV spots telling us not to trust the other guy. Because of a previous Supreme Court ruling, we don’t even know who is paying for some of these ads, but we do know they are filled with venom, lies and misinformation. Most people in America just shake their heads and grin and bear these lies rather than doing something about them.

Things will never get better while Donald Trump is the President of the United States. If I was giving Trump advice, the first thing I would tell him to do is shut up. He talks too much and he comments too early in just about every situation. He’s not only the worst President, he is also the worst client for any attorney. Maybe that is why his legal team is in constant flux.

The murder of a Washington Post columnist in Istanbul is proof that the alliances Trump has made and hyped are not in the interest of the United States. Clearly, the Crown Prince ordered the assassination of the royal family critic and our Great Orange leader showed his complete lack of understanding by his flawed messaging during this tragedy. In short, his big mouth blew it.

The Donald gets played by dictators and tyrants, while distrusting allies and proven honest leaders of countries needed to maintain the world order. Trump, like a hormone fueled teenager acting out, is more interested in disrupting things rather than getting things done.

The stock market is wildly bouncing day to day. Experts present theories, but deep down inside they know it’s all about the uncertainty of Trump’s actions. No one can predict the short term, intermediate or long-term effects of his tariffs on steel and aluminum. The global economies are so entwined that forensic investigators are needed to determine the origin of the various parts of each car a nation produces. Donald Trump has disrupted manufacturing in America, and not in a good way.

Our president yells at his rallies that he is going to push a 10% tax cut through Congress before the midterm election, when Congress isn’t even in session. Not to rain on the president’s lies, but we cannot keep cutting taxes and get things done in America. TheBalance.com web site says the national debt has seriously risen. “Trump plans to add $4.775 trillion, a 29-percent increase from the $20.245 trillion debt at the end of Obama’s last budget for FY 2017.” During his campaign, Trump pledged to eliminate the national debt in eight years. That was just another lie he pumped out to get elected. In reality, he has so far added almost $5 trillion to the national debt. What a liar!

Donald Trump believes that truth, facts and actual government stats don’t matter, and that’s what aggravates me the most. If I was in the House of Representatives, my most important criteria for Trump’s impeachment would be his constant barrage of lies. How are we ever going to eliminate the political scum of politics and government without making politicians pay for their lies?

Could it be that Trump’s claim of journalists being the enemy of the people caused Jamal Khashoggi’s death at the hands of the Saudis? Did the tax cuts that Trump gave to large corporations and the wealthy give them a green light to buy back stock without properly rewarding their workers? The stock market wobbles, and Trump sends out Larry Kudlow to say the reason is a fear that Congress would be returned to the Democrats. Really?

To create fear and uncertainly, Trump claims the caravan coming from the Honduras through Mexico is a Democratic plot. This man talks about mobs, while creating a gang mentality in his followers. All the bad that happens cannot be blamed on Obama or the Democrats. Isn’t Trump the President?

Will this man ever understand that history will chronicle the turmoil he promoted as president instead of the wonderful things he initiated during his time in office? When wages don’t increase, that’s on him. When journalists are harassed or killed, that’s on him. When the cost of goods skyrockets, that’s on him.

Trump wants only credit and points to a scapegoat when anything goes bad. This President blamed Puerto Rico’s financial problems and weak infrastructure for the hardships and deaths suffered on the island during a catastrophic storm. What kind of person does that? And now he wants to say that Transgender people don’t know what they feel. How does he know what they feel?

Trump is the problem. As things get worse, we must hold him accountable for his bad decisions, lack of leadership and harsh language that hurts our allies and helps those who want a less powerful United States. Under some definitions, our president is a traitor. And traitors must be prosecuted.

ROGUE KILLERS

Transactional Trump Doctrine 

Every human life is important. Every U.S. President has understood the principles of never putting a price on human life and not negotiating with terrorists or governments for the release of hostages. In the past, we haven’t paid ransoms to kidnappers.

Even though we have an on again, off again relationship with the death penalty here in America, we do keep a watchful eye on human rights violations around the world. That makes what happened in Turkey at the Saudi Arabian consulate even more outrageous. Sixty-year old journalist and legal U.S. resident, Jamal Khashoggi, entered the Saudi consulate to finalize his marriage documents and has not seen since. To be clear, a consulate or embassy is the responsibility of the country that owns it, NOT the responsibility of the country on whose soil it stands. The Saudi government is accountable for happenings at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

In business, a profit and loss analysis is deployed in every decision. With Khashoggi, President Trump has been pushed into a corner. According to the Turkish government, the journalist was killed inside the consulate and then dismembered and taken out for disposal. The Turks claim they have audio and video proof. If this is true, America would have to redefine its relationship with Saudi Arabia. What will President Trump do?

When Trump was first asked about this situation, he flinched and said that this would not stop sales of arms to the Saudis because it would hurt jobs here in the U.S. Really? During a press conference he claimed, “We would be punishing ourselves by canceling arms sales to Saudi Arabia. The U.S. was competing against China and Russia for the $110 billion deal with the country”. So, I guess we are the country that will take the money and run. We are the country that says a journalist’s life is not worth $110 billion dollars. You see, it’s all about money. HUMAN RIGHTS is just something you talk about to seem moral.

As Trump started to waffle on this a bit, he introduced the cover story that was fed to him by that Saudi King that it might have been “rogue killers” who killed Khashoggi. Marco Rubio stood tall and said retaliation might include NOT selling arms to the Saudis. Both the Saudis and Trump should be worried. The Turks claim that have a tape.

How silly the Donald and Jared Kushner look now for making such a big deal about their relationship with the new ruthless Saudi Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS). This is the guy who, right after talking to Jared on the phone, rounded up all his relatives he disliked and put them under house arrest at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Trump even tweeted that he had full confidence in the new Saudi Prince. The President of the United States in an enabler of dictators and thugs.

While Saudi Arabia wages a complex war in Yemen, smart diplomatic minds know this war has nothing to do with Yemen interests. It’s is a proxy battle between the Saudis and Iran. Russia backs Iran, the U.S. backs the Saudis. And just like a guy who goes down to his basement to play with his model trains, the Crown Prince works the war in his backyard. Yemen is a pastime for a bored Prince playing army and killing people.

The Saudis want our guns and bombs, so they can continue this war without world conflicts getting in the way of the one million barrels of oil they pump each day. Now, if they have killed the Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi, they will reveal the intolerance they have employed for years as a Wahhabi Islamic state. They put people to death everyday for any breach of protocol or independence. Maybe they believed that Trump would do nothing. After all, in the Donald’s words, “Journalists are the enemy of the people.”

We know that Donald Trump is a misinformed, narcissistic, pathological liar. We also know that all he really wants is to be loved. It’s a flaw quickly overshadowed by a constant desire to fight back for even the slightest disparaging remark. He seems to think that defensiveness makes him a real man. He cannot stand to be wrong and he punches back at every challenge, even if he might be proven wrong. He typically forgets words he spoke just a few minutes ago, so he might not even know that he’s lying.

In this conundrum, money might trump human rights. Without an action by the Congress, Trump will do the deal with the Saudis and make America just another political whore in the world. What happens when someone like Putin kills critics and journalists? Oh, that’s right, he already has. What happens when a U.S. citizen and journalist is killed on foreign soil? What will the great Orange Leader do then? In some ways, Trump is very transparent. He will do nothing that hurts his base.

Our President is always looking for a scapegoat to accuse of some terrible thing. He can say black is white, blue is red, and right is wrong. While many Americans are embarrassed by this fake man in makeup, others believe Trump is a savior.

Sadly, the death of a journalist might just be racked up as the cost of doing business; a small price to pay to keep American workers producing more death and destruction around the world. The transactional Trump Doctrine is bad for America. He’s made a deal with the devil and murderers in the Middle East. What happened to America’s moral leadership in the world. Trump has killed it.


ONE MUST ASK THE QUESTION

Why Does the Donald Hate the Maverick?

When most people die, they are done talking. But when special people die, their legacy, laughter and legitimacy live on forever. John S McCain III, the Senator from Arizona, Navy war hero and statesmen is still talking and winning the argument, even after death. The McCain premise is simple. Be a politician and work as hard as possible to be honest. The gift of his six decades of service to his country sure makes a bone-spur seem silly.

No love is lost between John McCain and President Donald J. Trump. There is nothing but animosity, disdain and disrespect between them. McCain seems to have been the embodiment of all that Trump dislikes about America, and Trump, the demonic proof of all that is wrong with Washington and bad people in general.

The lack of respect that our president has shown John McCain earned him an outright decree from true patriot McCain himself, that the President not be part of his funeral services. You see, Trump cannot control a dead man’s wishes.

On Sunday (8-26-2018), the flag above the White House flew at half-staff to honor our true American treasure. However, on Monday morning the flag was back up full staff. President Trump hasn’t issued a presidential proclamation with an order to lower the flags. In tradition and law, the flag can be lowered in honor by presidential proclamation, as was done over five days for Senator Teddy Kennedy. The lack of comment or action from the President about John McCain demonstrates our Great Orange Leader’s pettiness and lack of care for American values. He might as well just spit in the face of every serving member of the Armed Forces.

Perhaps Trump is wishing that all the TV channels will stop talking about John McCain and get back to covering him. One newspaper commented that the outpouring was closer to what a former president would receive than a five-term Senator. Trump’s departure from this earth will not net this kind of homage. McCain’s back story shows a lot of what Trump isn’t, and that obviously bothers our frail, little-baby president.

Trump doesn’t respect truth and honesty. Decency is viewed by the Donald as a weakness that must be cured. Like a poison that flows through his veins, the lack of apologizing for misspeaking or a bad decision is an embarrassing weakness, not a virtue. His accuracy must be rubbed out as soon as possible.

When candidate Trump said that John McCain wasn’t a war hero because he was captured, that was a joke that got noticed. Once made, Donald Trump could not pull that statement back into his tiny, damaged brain. He thinks everything he says gets etched into stone as the truth. There lies the link between Trump and pre-historic Neanderthal man. He would rather disappoint decent people than admit he was trying to be funny or wrong.

When you ask the question why a sitting president would act like this, perhaps we should also look at the Justice Department policy that says a sitting president cannot be indicted. Maybe we need to update our laws and policies based on the president we have rather than the president we deserve. Why not indict Donald Trump?

Trump’s treatment of John McCain, in contrast to the way he treats the President of Russia, is eye-opening on so many levels. Trump is not critical of Putin because Putin is not critical of Trump. Trump honors any tyrant, dictator or murderer who says complimentary things about him more than someone who fought for his own country. That country, of course, is the U.S.A. Does that not make Trump a traitor?

This stubborn attitude and unwillingness to be a real man and at least say nice things about the dearly departed makes Trump no better than the drunk on the corner. He can only hope his organs can process all the vile and hate pouring out of his broken, spineless form. He’s not my president.

Let me summarize it this way. Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America, is jealous of John McCain III. Perhaps the president, with all his endorsements and claim of some evangelical mandate, should read the Holy Bible to find out how to handle this one. I would recommend John 3:14, “But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.”

I cannot deny the truth. Trump is a worthless, lousy piece of shit.

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.

OPEN LETER TO LAURA INGRAHAM

This is the Rot Trump Wrought

There are two female broadcasters who are fomenters of the most wretched, vile kind. One is Ann Coulter and the other is Laura Ingraham. I put them in the same basket, but today, let’s talk about the Fox News host who is part of their opinion programming.

I don’t usually start off by stating someone’s pedigree, you know, like the first question you ask a dog owner, but I am curious about what breed of mutt Ingraham could be. Ms. Laura’s maternal grandparents were Polish immigrants and her father was of Irish and English ancestry. We don’t need the results of a 23andMe DNA test to know that her mouth is directly connected to the white side of her Anglo brain. If she was alive in the 1930s and living with her grandmother, she would have been a one-woman, flag-waving welcome wagon for Adolf and the boys as they marched into the homeland of Poland.

In August of 2018, she decided to say these things on the air, “In some parts of the country, it does seem like the America that we know and love doesn’t exist anymore.” Now I don’t know where she has been visiting, but as far as my love affair with America goes, I believe that America never stays the same and that “change” is a built-in benefit. But she continued, “Massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people. And they’re changes that none of us ever voted for, and most of us don’t like.”

Laura dear, demographic changes happen for a lot of reasons and they are not “foisted” on anyone. They occur for millions of reasons, 330 million reasons in this case. People do what they want in America and that is why we call it “the land of the free.”

People get to vote in America in many ways, by the babies they make and the U-Hauls they rent, for example. And when you say that “most of us don’t like” are you saying that you should have a right, or a vote on where I live or what I do or who I love? No one asked you what you thought. You just keep telling us. When you say “most of us” who the hell are you talking about? Did you let us vote? If it was up to me, you would ONLY be heard on a 1,000-watt daytime AM radio station in Fargo, N.D. with bad coffee and poor ventilation.

Why don’t you go back to the Libertarian hypnotists at the University of Virginia where you got your law degree and check on the true meaning of freedom? You know, like your First Amendment right to say stupid things on Cable TV and the basic human right to live where you want to do your pursuing of happiness. That doesn’t mean, however, that you have the power or right to infringe on common sense. America has always been changed by immigrants. Wake up and smell the cappuccino.

If Ingraham would have just left it there, she would have been fine, but she had to add, “From Virginia to California, we see stark examples of how radically in some ways the country has changed. Now, much of this is related to both illegal and in some cases legal immigration.”

Okay, I get it. Occasionally you have to take out that big dog whistle and blow it. And the sound that comes out screams, “I am a racist”. We don’t get to vote on the vitriol, hate and poison that comes out of your mouth, but we do have the right to call you out.

You may like the organic tomatoes that you pluck at Whole Paycheck, and you probably never take the time to think that a human hand had to pick that fruit, but you should know that a brown hand took that plump, red delicacy from the plant and put it in a box. And the hands of legal or illegal immigrants helped lift and push your food along the path to your plate. You eat it and you smile.

Laura Ingraham doesn’t give a shit about anyone outside of her little circle of whiteness and rightness and their self-appointed importance. She may think that America is just for Americans, but we are all Americans. Even the white racists with large megaphones are Americans, but when your sponsors pull some commercials you will get the message that not all us think like you.  And if you are asking why “love doesn’t exist anymore” perhaps you should look in the mirror and ask yourself why you hate so much.

Dear Laura, you are just a silly little lawyer. Your thin lips are drenched with xenophobic and racist spittle. Your clenched jaw holds that whistle so tightly that we can see your intense insensitivity. And that whistle plays only one note, the note of hate. And that spit is really annoying to everyone who holds the true meaning of America in their heart.
