TRUMP IS CRAZY

America Can Do Better Than This

I woke up this morning with a question thumping through my mind, “Why do Americans have to suffer because of Donald Trump?” For the life of me, I don’t understand why any clear-thinking person can’t see through this bloated baffoon.

First, we do have one of the best economies since right after World War II. Why can’t the boy in power just leave that alone? Why aggravate the situation with emotional trade wars, threating tweets and creating barriers between the US and our allies? If we are doing so well, why would any American have to go without a paycheck? Trump’s theories are ill-conceived and foolish, and they make people go without pay and cause children to die in our custody.

Donald Trump suggests we are going to have to suffer for the short term to fix what he claims has been broken for years, really? For the most part, the world has avoided massive wars during the past 45 years and the economies of most developed countries have been relatively stable. Why screw with that? I don’t believe in Donald Trump. He’s not a king or a deity, but he certainly is a shitty economist.

You can line-up the top economists and Neo-cons in Congress and ask them to explain things, but you will not get a clear answer about what is so wrong with a global economy. We’ve already paid for a better life with cheap clothes and cars. BTW, the air is cleaner in Pittsburgh and a hard drive company now sits where a steel mill used to be. Trump didn’t always buy American steel to build some of his unimaginative buildings, and you can argue that hurt this country. But now that he’s in charge he wants to fix it all. Good luck, fat ass; isolationism works only when you have no friends.

The recent government shutdown, the third in a year, proves that Donald J. Trump is a horrendous executive with zero talent for pre-planning and advanced thinking. We could avoid all this if Trump wasn’t such a stupid politician. Smart politicians get what they want by goals that inflict the least amount of pain on the people they expect to re-elect them.

Trump stood in the rose garden of the White House yesterday and inferred that people who aren’t getting paychecks care more about his wall than the pain they will feel without food on the table. What an out-of-touch human being. What a dolt Donald is.

The Democrats, now swelling with power in the House of Representatives, feel that they must stop Trump. Are their actions purely partisan or are they really executing a brilliant tactic to demonstrate that our leader is only a feckless loser wearing no pants?

What most people don’t understand is that building a wall of the magnitude Trump wants would take decades with a cost close to $200-300 billion. In my hometown, it took six months to repave a one-mile strip of road. At that rate, straight math suggests it would take more than 300 years to build a 2,000-mile border wall.

Donald Trump knows that construction projects take time. Building the Trump Tower in New York took two years, and two people died in the process.

The real problem here folks, as the Donald likes to call you, is that we have a thug-businessman in the White House, and that doesn’t seem to be working in DC. As much as I hate Newt Gingrich, at least he understands that Washington works on its own rules and on its own clock. Trump knows nothing; I’m not at all sure about what skills he has. He certainly doesn’t know how to please all the people who want him to be a real leader, including 60% of American citizens and our allies all over the world.

Trump’s government shutdown over the wall is symbolic of his whole presidency. He cares only about a win for Trump, regardless of the cost to American workers and their families. He casts a shadow over the prospect of meaningful negotiation by saying the government could be shut down for months, maybe years. What a fucking baby. And then he says he could declare a national emergency and build the wall as Commander-in-Chief. Now you know why Mattis quit, General Kelly is gone, and McMaster is missing in action. Yet our lunatic President claims that he knows how America works. Where are the new Generals to step up keep this jagoff under control? Well I call BS. It’s time to impeach the motherfucker. To be clear, both Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels are mothers.

 


SEX, LIES & AUDIO TAPES

The End of Times Coming for Trump

When will responsible people in power wake up and start to realize that America is more important than party politics and Trump’s ego? Within the last 24-hours we have learned that Trump’s ex-lawyer, Michael Cohen, was instructed to make hush payments to women who allege affairs with Donald Trump before he ran for president.

One of these payments was corroborated by AMI, the owner of the National Inquirer, for the sole purpose of helping Donald Trump with the 2016 presidential election. And now we have a Russian national, Maria Butina, pleading guilty to charges of espionage with attempts to infiltrate conservative leaders in Congress and the National Rifle Association. The NRA bought more than $10 million in political advertisements for Trump. The missing piece of information is whether Russian banks gave money to the NRA before the election. But STOP and listen America. Butina believed she could infiltrate our political process by getting cozy with the NRA. She should be called to testify before Congress.

And our Great Orange Leader cannot keep his trap shut. Exhibit #1: a string of tweets from 12-12-2018 by Donald J. Trump which included this lie, “I never directed Michael Cohen to break the law.” With nine words, President Donald Trump has sullied the office of the president and embarrassed the United States on the world stage.

First, Michael Cohen was an employee of the Trump Organization and his actions were in concert with the CEO, CFO and President of that company. Someone in the organization approved the payments. Michael Cohen recorded his discussion about the payment with Donald Trump. That recording has been aired by the media. Trump is heard suggesting that Cohen pay cash, obviously thinking CASH would be less traceable. Isn’t that the way organized crime handles deals?

Trump claimed that he was just acting on the “advice of his lawyer” and makes some claim of Cohen’s liability to him. What? Cohen plead guilty and got three years in jail. He is paying for his mistake. Will Trump ever?

The president saying that, “I did nothing wrong with respect to campaign finance laws…” sounds quite a bit like, “I am not a crook,” the fateful words of another presidential law breaker. This sweet denial of guilt on the part of our President of the United States makes one want to open a deep discussion about how to indict a sitting president. One thing is perfect clear, the man has lost it.

We learned that Trump was in the room when the deal with David Pecker of AMI was concocted, and the publisher believes he was doing this “dirty deed” to help TRUMP win the election. Today (12-14-2018), Michael Cohen took to ABC TV to sing. When does this end? How will this end? Winter is coming.

Thankfully, there’s a surfacing reality that more and more people are admitting, at least to themselves, that Donald Trump is a liar. What took them so long?

Media pundits reference Trump’s large support by Republicans and his base, but even they are starting to say, “Yeah, he lies, but he’s doing a good job.” Do we really want someone leading America who lies? Is a liar better than someone who tells the truth? Maybe one day we will all wake up and realize this all was just a bad nightmare and get back to a normal America. I can’t wait.

ORRIN HATCH IS A MORON

Republicans Sell Their Souls for Trump

I never thought I would say I would be happy that Mitt Romney was the next Senator from Utah, but I am. Another way to say it, when Orrin Hatch retires at the end of the year, the United States Senate will be a better body.

When Senator Hatch was asked about the obvious connection between Michael Cohen’s crimes and testimony and Donald Trump, Mr. Hatch said he didn’t care. He just brushed aside the reporter saying, “Trump is doing a good job as president.” Really? Orrin’s reaction was like the Catholic parishioner looking the other way on sexual abuse and saying we should think about all the good things Father “So and So” has done. Where’s the law and order, Mr. Hatch?

We have been hearing Donald Trump’s chant of “No Collusion” and the misrepresentative of the Special Counsel’s investigation as a “Witch Hunt” for more than a year, but the President is running out of time to prove his innocence. Let’s make it clear, the reason the investigation was started was because of the facts that many Trump associates and campaign people met with Russians and LIED ABOUT IT. And the reason this was important from the beginning was because the US intelligence community all agreed that Russian agents attempted to disrupt the electoral process in the 2016 Presidential election. These are facts and dangerous activities.

The dirty deeds of Trump allegedly having affairs and paying the women for their silence to help his chances of being elected, were minor events until Trump LIED ABOUT IT. Michael Cohen and now, the publisher of the National Inquirer have accused Trump of paying women to help him get elected. It’s an in-kind political contribution, which is against the law.

John Edwards used “child support” as an accuse for his dirty deeds. We wonder what senseless scheme or legal loophole Trump’s team will claim. It’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up that places Trump in the same league as Richard Nixon.

The fact that Trump refused to release his tax returns wasn’t breaking a law, but the reason he didn’t release them was a LIE. What might be hidden in those returns would shed light on whether Trump owes money to Russian or Saudi Arabian banks. And what moneys will Donald Trump make if he does favors for certain countries? The emolument case in Maryland and D.C. will prove how much money Trump and his family are making since he has become president. Those will be more FACTS, not lies.

The reason the Republicans are not speaking out against the way Trump has handled all this is because of people like Orrin Hatch. What moral authority lets him look the other way when the leader of the free world lies to his countrymen and women? Maybe Mitt can stand up to those in his party and start to bring some moderate, moral judgements to the floor of the Senate. Without Corker and Flake, the body is on shaky ground. The earthquake Trump has brought to America has done its damage and it’s time for someone to stand up and say, let’s move forward with REGULAR ORDER. The cracks in Democracy can be fixed, but we should NOT wait too long.

It’s not a party thing, it’s an American thing. Donald J. Trump is a LIAR, and everyone knows it. He’s a grand master flip-flopper and has little comprehension of how our government works and why international leadership is important. Trump is more interested in performing in his dystopian reality TV show, swirling fear and promoting conspiracies that have no basis in fact. He’s a pathological liar.

We must impeach him. Why waste the time trying to change the law about indicting a sitting president? Congress has a method to remove the cancer from the Presidency, it’s impeachment. We cannot wait for the toadies and traitors in Congress to get the job done. The American people must SPEAK UP and defeat the liars.

Ruthless & Truthless Liar

A Case for Indicting a Sitting President

There is a very well-written 29-page memo the Department of Justice posted on October 2000 that clearly says that a sitting president cannot be indicted. If you want to read the whole thing, it’s right here. But let’s cut to the chase, it says that, “The indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting President would unconstitutionally undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions.”

Some might argue that it’s time to examine that under unusual circumstances, a sitting president should be able to be indicted. Within our legal system the only true remedy of dealing with an unsavory leader is impeachment. Anyone watching this slow-moving disruption of the norms of America with Donald Trump will agree that this president has created an “usual circumstance.”

The opinion memo from DOJ in 2000 has a funny reference to the concept of charging a sitting president but postponing a trial until he’s out of office with, “…there would be a Russian roulette aspect to…[it].” RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA!

Another not so funny admission was that Justice thinks having 12 unelected jurors decide the fate of the President would be a dangerous precedent and alluded to the fact that such weighty matters would be outside the regular joe’s experience. In short, they are saying ordinary citizens are not smart enough to judge such complicated matters. Really? That’s how they kept the vote and being on juries from women for almost 150 years. Or were they being a bit truthful about the flaw in the system of a jury of your peers?

We certainly believe that no man or woman is above the law. Our founding fathers were smart men who understood the need to make sure the top executive of the nation was free from frivolous law suits or local laws that could thwart his ability to do the nations’ business. They also had to deal with the conflict between the person who runs the justice department (the President) having the power of executive privilege. You cannot be the defendant and judge in the same case.

The founding fathers were a group of rich landowners who believed, their class, would never let someone of such low values and character to ever land the job of President. They were idealistic and a bit naïve, but then, how could they have ever predicted how America would change or even, a Donald Trump.

With filings landing in the Special Counsel’s investigation into Russian intervention into our 2016 election and the proposed “political synergy” between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives, we are seeing more hints of obstructing the investigation. If these accusations are true, it seems the President of the United States was, at least, more involved than he has admitted. If you care about America and our Democratic process, then you should take notice that these accusations are coming from the Justice Department, not some left-wing conspirators.

The founders of this great land wanted the Congress to be the check and balance in all presidential matters and clearly stated that impeachment for “high crimes and misdemeanors” was the way to dispense with a bad guy in the White House. And this notion has been revealed in our history.

Presidents Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton were all impeached by the US House of Representatives. Although Johnson missed being tossed out of office by only one vote. Bill Clinton’s impeachment verdict fell short by 22 votes. Nixon never made it to impeachment. His party convinced him to resign and walk away from all his illegal activities. Later, President Ford pardoned Nixon. Completing the invisible circle that people in high offices rarely, even if convicted, serve time.

We don’t want to ever think that the party in power could execute a coup to take the voter’s choice out of office. At the same time, the credibility of the entire justice system of America is diminished if the chief executive breaks the law and is not held accountable for his or her actions. That is why it’s called a Constitutional Crisis.

If the President breaks the law while in office, he can only be impeached, he cannot be indicted, arrested or stand trial. We get it. If Donald Trump knows that he will be indicted once he leaves office, he will simply do a deal with Pence to get a pardon. We have already seen this one played out. If a Democrat is elected President, then Trump, if found guilty could do some time. Elections do matter.

Not all is lost, in the memo released in 2000 it does confirm that the Chief Executive does have to cooperate with any investigation and must provide documents, so long as they don’t interfere with his busy schedule. He doesn’t have to go to any courtroom, but he must comply with any request for documents or information, so long as it doesn’t involve national security. That excuse has been used over years and it has not generally impressed the courts or judges. If you want to get into the weeds, look up US vs. Nixon, or Nixon vs. Fitzgerald, or Clinton vs. Jones.

In conclusion, there is no legal way a president can be indicted while in office. The Vice President and everyone else in government does not have that immunity. So, to all the Democrats and Never-Trump Republicans, the only way the presidency (the institution) can be protected is by Congress acting. YOU HAVE TO IMPEACH TRUMP before you can make him stand trial. And if Robert Mueller shows you the President did not protect America and violated his oath, you must IMPEACH.


REPUBLICAN WOMEN COMPLICIT

Trump’s Red Misogyny Spreads Across the Land

There was a time when Kanye West took the microphone on the stage of a Katrina Disaster Relief benefit and screamed, “George Bush doesn’t care about Black people.” Where is he now to stand up and say, “President Trump doesn’t care about women.” Oh yeah, he’s too busy wearing his red “Hitler hat” on TV, ineffectively trying to explain himself to everyone who made fun of his proclamations. In the end, evidence will prove that Mr. West has no worthy opinion about anything.

In Donald Trump’s world, men get to decide things and most, if not all, women with claims of sexual misconduct against any man, are NOT to be taken seriously. He mocks them, denies their accounts and to make matter worse, adds, “the Kavanaugh allegations show it’s a very scary time for young men in America.” The President of the United States went on stage at one of his redneck rallies and mocked the Senate Judiciary Committee testimony of Christine Blasey Ford. Our great Orange Leader doesn’t care about women. There, someone had to say it.

The group I would like to address today are the Republican women who go to Trump’s rallies and are complicit in the devaluation of women. If you have watched the HULU TV series The Handmaid’s Tale, you can imagine what would happen if those women, claiming to be patriots of America, stood by while Trump and his Supreme Court ruled against women.

The TV series is based on the best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood and is set in a place called Gilead, a totalitarian society that broke away from the United States and is ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state. The justification for taking power over women is a plummeting birth rate. In the story, the few remaining fertile women are forced into sexual servitude, so that the powerful people in the land can procreate. The religious overtones and language of this plot shows that a society could be taken over by zealots, you know, like Islamic states. Only in this one, it’s the far-right Christians who have all the power.

There is a flaw in our current reality when good Christian people get sucked into the dogma of The Donald without any regard for the fact the he personally could care less about Christianity. He worships money. And if we take the latest reportage from the New York Times to be only half true, Trump was taught by his father and crafty lawyers how to cheat the system long before he was able to talk in whole sentences. Well, he’s still struggling with learning how to do that, but the fraud and deception is hard-wired into the Trump Organization. Surprise, Surprise!

The Trumps have been stealing from the U.S. Treasury for more than a half century. When we finally get to see his tax returns, it will likely become clear that he hasn’t coughed up his fair share of taxes, ever. Since playing fair and being treated fairly is such a common theme with Donald Trump, it’s contra to the very martyr complex this anarchistic moron embodies. But I didn’t vote for him, like the majority of America.

Once women side with the men in every instance of sexual harassment, misconduct or violent attacks, who will be left to pray for the casualties? The lifelong psychological burdens placed on these women are unimportant to these red state lunatics. When it comes to getting one certain judge on the high court, the end justifies the means with these ladies. And we thought that women had progressed in these United States. I guess the orange man trumps logic, equal rights and control of women’s’ bodies.

When the government becomes the vehicle for religious goals and rules, we are no better than those religious states we occasionally put down with our words and actions. Brett Kavanaugh is a pawn in the passion play of government taking away more power from both men and women. He doesn’t have to be the chosen person to get the job done.  There are many overly conservative zealots on the court already, just pick one and put him in there. Why are we making this choice about whether you believe a woman who says he’s not fit to be there? He’s proven that he doesn’t have the temperament and is way too political to hold the post.

I can’t help but wonder why our new Supreme Court candidate is not a woman. It must be hard to find a female jurist who would be a guarantee to overturn Roe Vs. Wade for the Evangelicals. I don’t believe in the Supreme Court. Why would a supposed impartial group of deciders have built in bias in its selection process? Can’t a president just find someone who doesn’t have political bias?

If only the women of America would come together and help the men decide these things. But, unfortunately, millions of women in this country are complicit. It’s all politics, and they don’t see the light until it happens to one of their sons or daughters.

If you mock Dr. Ford, you are dismissing the power your grandmothers and mothers gained with their right to vote. Do you dismiss Jerry Sandusky and what happened at Penn State? Do you dismiss what happened to all those boys and girls at the hands to the Catholic Church? Do you dismiss what happened to thousands of gymnasts treated by their so-called male doctor? Why would you laugh at Dr. Ford at your Trump rallies? Have you no decency?

We’re seeing the results of people looking the other way with this white washed investigation of Kavanaugh’s misconduct. This complicity needs to be brought into the purifying light of a new day. How do you believe a man when his con job takes away your rights and gives him more power? Donald Trump doesn’t care about women who don’t give him what he wants. You’ve been warned, sisters.

TRUMP VS. GOOGLE

What is really going on here?

With channel-to-channel coverage of the death and remembrances of John McCain, our Great Orange Leader felt compelled to start a fight with someone to get the spotlight back on him. Oh my, narcissism at its best.

As someone who worked in the field of high tech for more than fifteen years, I would like to shed some light on what is going on with Donald’s trumped up charge that Google, Facebook and Twitter are somehow biased against the President, Conservatives and Republicans.

This was the leader of the free world taking on search engines on TWITTER, “Google search results for “Trump News” shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal? 96% of results on “Trump News” are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous. Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!” Note to dumbbell, you did this on the internet and 91,000 people liked it and 26,000 retweeted it. I’m not sure why he complains about getting all that FREE coverage.

During the hearings on Capitol Hill, the members of Congress showed their complete lack of understanding about how the Internet and social media work, but the White House’s Flunky-in-Chief tops them. It’s also obvious that Fox News and their caged conservatives have no idea about how they work either. But that brings us to the real problem on the Internet, Donald Trump.

The technology and algorithms deployed by Google, Twitter and Facebook determine what is important by two major factors: How many links are connected to each page and how many people then click to those pages. In a sense, they measure popular vote. In the case of Donald Trump’s presidency, it’s a popular vote on a very unpopular person.

Internet research conducted during and right after the 2016 election showed that people were more likely to remember and pass along negative stories than positive ones. Back in the 1970s, the Ford Motor Company found that a bad product experience was passed along to 14 people, while a positive experience was mentioned to only four people. So we see consistency through the decades.

Think about it. When is the last time you picked up someone from the airport and they went on and on about having a positive flying experience? If they share what happened during the flight, chances are it will be a horror story. In fact, when I googled “positive air flight experience” all the articles were about airlines from other countries, not one reference to a U.S. airline was returned. Should American carriers be complaining to Google? The fact is, Google is simply mirroring what is true, or what they believe their search customers want to hear. I must admit that my most positive flying experiences were on non-U.S. carriers.

Trump’s gripe with Google is unenlightened to the point of silliness. It reminds me of the foolish news director at a TV station who wanted every other story to be positive. That might or might not get ratings, but it’s not how Google News or any news platform should work.

What Trump and those lug nuts in Congress don’t understand is that Google presents customized search results to each user, based on who they are and their past queries. If you like guns and have searched for gun-based information many times, your results on the search query “home protection” will likely deliver some information on guns. Whereas if I do the same search, Google will probably direct me to high tech home security systems.

It makes sense that Trump searching his name yields potently negative results. His keyboard dumps mostly hostile content online, so it makes sense that searching his own name yields highly negative results. Look at the graphic attached here on my Google search today (8-30-2018) and see how the Donald himself has affected the results. And tomorrow, that result will be different.

If someone did a HATE vs. LOVE survey on Donald Trump it would show that out of the more than 50% who do not like him, there is probably 20% who hate him. I’m sure Mr. President would have things to say about that.

The irony of my posting this on the internet is it will contribute in a small way to future Google search results. The only fake news here is that Donald Trump believes people searching the internet want to read only positive things about him. In Trumpworld, you are not to read newspapers, you are allowed to watch only certain TV channels, you must hate the NFL and you are expected to be more negative about America than positive. THESE ARE FACTS! What did Trump expect? HINT: google ”narcissism.”

#UnIndictedCoConspirator

Trump Loyalty vs. Real Loyalty

Not only did Donald Trump have a bad day yesterday (8-21-2018), but America had a terrible day as we learned of corruption at the top. We are now faced with the task of repairing the republic.

On these pages we have previously pondered the possibility that someone like Donald Trump might take actions leading to a Constitutional crisis. Well we may have one soon.

There is a notion and policy in the Justice Department that a sitting president cannot be indicted. We aren’t sure if this was what the framers of the Constitution had in mind, but both Republican and Democratic lawyers have used it as a guideline over the years. What some will point out is not what is said, but rather what is written in this case.

In Section 4: Impeachment: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. The President, Vice-President, Cabinet Secretaries, and other executive officers, as well as judges, may be impeached by the House of Representatives and tried in the Senate.

Any official convicted by the Senate would be immediately removed from office. The Senate could also choose to bar the removed official from holding any federal office in the future. No other punishments may be inflicted, pursuant to the impeachment proceeding, but the convicted party remains liable to trial and punishment in the courts for civil and criminal charges. If Donald Trump was not the President right now, he would have been named a coconspirator in the crimes of Michael Cohen.

So, the notion is that, while in office, these people shall be judged by Congress and could be impeached. Once out of office, the courts can have at them. A president can be charged, according to the Constitution, if they commit treason, take bribes or commit other “high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” The capitalizations are from the founders.

Garrett Epps in The Atlantic magazine in 2018 wrote a great article called, The Only Way to Find Out If the President Can Be Indicted: Scholars disagree on existing precedents—and the question won’t be settled until evidence leads a prosecutor to try it. In that article, he points out “that the Constitution suggest that the president is subject to laws like any citizen, but never discusses prosecution in office.”

In 1973, the then-Solicitor General Robert Bork, wrote an opinion that a Vice President should not have the same protections against prosecution while in office that a president would have, but that was just an opinion, not law. Also, the article reminds us that a 1998 opinion, written by a lawyer in Kenneth Starr’s Office of the Independent Counsel investigating President Bill Clinton, clearly stated that a sitting president could be indicted. Of course, he was trying to lock up Clinton for lying under oath about affairs.

Only the Best People?

Yesterday in court, we had President Donald J. Trump being accused in the pleading and allocution of Michael Cohen that candidate and client, Donald Trump “directed him” to commit election fraud. Cohen testified under oath and said that he knew it was against the law. That would mean that citizen Donald Trump is an Unindicted Coconspirator in a felony. This is a federal crime.

Epps’ article points out, [Bork’s] memo considers the Constitution’s text and finds no answer. It says, correctly, that there is no “airtight separation of powers, but rather … a system of checks and balances, or blending the three powers.”

And there is this famous line from then Vice President Gerald Ford, “Impeachment is whatever the Senate says it is.” Remember that Nixon was told to resign from office by his party leaders, long before Congress got to the destructive action of impeachment. Barry Goldwater and other Republicans at the time knew that if a trial took place Nixon would have been the first president to be removed from office.

Even more troubling, if a president has committed “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” and ends up on the outside, the new president could easily pardon him. It happened with Gerald Ford pardoning Richard Nixon. Pence would likely do the same thing with Trump. Why? It’s been said that it would look bad if a former leader of the free world wasn’t free. Huh? We don’t want to look bad? When did the judicial system ever worry about how we look?

Donald Trump wanted to disrupt Washington and the whole of government. All he has done is waste a lot of time on things that don’t matter. He may have pulled the U.S.A. out of a bunch of treaties and agreements, but he hasn’t made better deals. Trump has gotten everyone’s attention in the world on trade, but with no short or long term guarantees that he has done more good, than damage. Trump has moved the Republican party to the far-white-right, but few are complaining in the G.O.P. Were they racists and isolationists all along? Do they care more about re-election than they do about America?

People must decide if they will be loyal to Trump or loyal to our country. Do we uphold the laws of the land, or do we choose to look the other way? It’s time for us to indict a sitting president and see where that goes. If the Supreme Court reasons that the founders and the Constitution say that impeachment is the only way to deal with a crime committed by a president, then let’s impeach the bastard. But if the Congress and the Supreme Court say that a sitting President is above the law, then it’s time to change the laws. Trump is a self-serving anarchistic pea brain with absolutely no redeeming qualities.

The more we learn the worse it gets. Let’s unite this country now and throw Trump out of office.

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.

MISSING THE WHOLE POINT

Samantha Bee Created a Hornet’s Nest

On her TBS cable show, comedian Samantha Bee took things to the next level by attacking Ivanka Trump, a woman who works for the current administration. Coming in the same week that Roseanne Barr lost her job for a racist tweet, the FULL FRONTAL TV show also got everyone’s underpants in a twitter. Bee indicted the President’s daughter for not taking up the plight of immigrant children being separated from their mothers and fathers as they come across the border seeking asylum in this great land of the free.

Yes, Samantha Bee called Ivanka a “feckless cunt.” The words were beeped out in the broadcast version of the program, but not in the web posting of the show. After the web world blew up, the network removed the program from its web site.

Bee’s verbal abuse of the “First Daughter” was motivated by the left’s myth that they could count on her to be the voice of reason. Ha! Ivanka will not take a public stand against her father’s draconian immigration policies. We know that Ivanka is just a trophy daughter, and if that offends you, then why is she there? Tell me. I am convinced she has no responsibilities. No one has ever provided her job description or explained exactly what she does.

The pundits and talking heads on TV trying to explain how Roseanne Barr’s tweet is the same as Samantha Bee’s putdown of the President’s daughter are missing the whole point. Samantha Bee won the messaging war, while Roseanne is just another person out of work.

Most of the country didn’t know who Samantha Bee was before this episode. Those who follow the Daily Show, will remember her as an edgy and feminist correspondent on that program. Full Frontal airs on TBS, a fringe network serving up basketball games and reruns of “Big Bang Theory.” There are those who wonder what happened to Conan O’Brien. Well he’s on TBS and has been for years.

Both Michelle Wolf and, now, Samantha Bee, have made explosive launches into the public consciousness. They used their opportunity to say something, and they REALLY said something. Bee’s message would never have gotten to so many people if she didn’t use the C-word.

No one in the White House or in the house next door would have been talking about this if the Canadian-American didn’t step outside the box. Everyone is talking about Bee and the point she made. This is a huge win for TBS and Samantha, forced to apologize to save sponsors, is in a better position than ever. I am sure the tune in for her next show will be tremendous.

The effect that this will have on the judge’s decision on whether AT&T can buy Time-Warner and, thus, Turner and TBS is unknown. But if AT&T is blocked from the merger by the Justice Department Trump thinks he runs, someone else will line up to buy the large media company, and it could be Jeff Bezos. So, Mr. Trump, be careful what you wish.

Separating families at the border is immoral and hurtful. We know that there is no greater pain you could possibly inflict on parents and their children, so why are we doing this in America?

The quick answer from all those in the Trump camp is that the people coming across the border are breaking the law and the law says we must separate them. Huh? Another answer the Trumpettes give when confronted with the pain they are causing is, “We didn’t start it, Obama did the same thing.” If Obama is the worst enemy of the Trump camp, how do they get away with using an Obama immigrant policy as the justification for doing harm to kids? I don’t get it.

And with this Law & Order White House, why is Trump replacing juries and judges with his pardon pen? Trump seems to pick and choose what laws are breakable and which are punishable.

Samantha Bee should not be fired for using her First Amendment right to speak out about immigration policy, no matter who sits in the White House. You can argue that her personal attack on Ivanka was mean spirited and vulgar, but it got the job done. Her message was heard.

Donald Trump will scream for an apology, which is oxymoronic, or maybe just moronic. Our Great Orange Leader says that he apologizes to no one, not even God. He said he has done nothing requiring an apology. Really?

We are in the grip of a tyrant in the making. He has made it okay to scream back and be rude and to say anything that gets attention. It’s what he does. Trump hates it when someone else takes the stage away from him or, more accurately, the mic. He craves being the center of attention. We wish him luck on his quest for popularity.

Donald Trump will never be well-liked by all Americans. If you are African-American, Hispanic, poor or interested in making money on global projects and companies, this president is a disaster. We will see who is feckless in the long run and, for those who didn’t look up the word, it means a person lacking initiative or strength of character. Hey, if the shoe fits… I would go so far to say that Donald, not his daughter, is the feckless cunt.
