ROMNEY, RELIGION & REVENGE

Fake Faith from Unfaithful Father Figure

The problem with different religious beliefs are the conflicts that often arise between the way one person interprets another’s faith, even when praying to the same God. You know, same God, different viewpoints. The Holy Bible for Christians does give some advice. In Matthew 22:21 the writer claims that Jesus said, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.” Then in Romans 13:1 there’s a cautionary warning, “Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities.”

Not to get off on a biblical rant here, but both of those references come from the New Testament, meaning they were written after Jesus was crucified. One of the justifications for the Roman’s killing Jesus was the fake news that he said he was a king, but who can possibly know what transpired in the conversations between Jesus and Pontius Pilate? Without a crucifixion you cannot have a resurrection and the true proof that Jesus was not of this world, or was God just manipulating the story? Writers of these first books of the New Testament were produced before the Romans declared that one should tolerate the Christian sect. That didn’t take place until 313 AD. They were careful not to alarm the authorities with what they wrote.

The reason we comment here is because of what Mitt Romney, the Senator from Utah, did yesterday. He used his faith to justify voting for Trump’s removal from office. Romney did something else strange. He voted for conviction on the count of abuse of power but gave the president a pass on obstruction of Congress. I wonder how he justified that. If Romney believed Trump abused his office, and he knew that Trump withheld witnesses and documents, isn’t that clearly obstruction of Congress?

Donald Trump blasted both Romney and Nancy Pelosi for using their faith to do, as he said, “the wrong thing.” He lashed out by saying he “doesn’t like people who use their faith like that” at the annual National Prayer Breakfast. The event has so much political taint and abuse of religion connected with it, that had Jesus attended he would have been turning over the tables of all the money changers in the room.

The French existentialist and philosopher, Jean-Paul Sartre said, “There is no determinism, man is free, man is freedom. On the other hand, if God does not exist, we find no values or commands to turn to which legitimize our conduct.” This begs the question, has Trump been using his pseudo belief in God to legitimize his conduct, both before and after he became President? We think so.

There is nothing in the teachings of the Jewish God or the New Testament Christians that seeks revenge as the remedy or resolve for your ego. Romans 1:12:21 clearly states, “Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.’” So, the payback must come from God, not from a mortal man like Trump. For those who keep quoting the “eye for an eye” rule as if it’s part of the Bible, sorry, that is part of Hammurabi’s code from the 18th century BC.

It’s a fact that Donald John Trump has been unfaithful to wives and he has admitted it. At least 17 women have gone public with accusations that Trump once sexually abused or harassed them. I am sure the Christian evangelicals have forgiven Trump, but will Trump ever forgive his accusers for being honest? If one being honest is somehow against Trump, then their honesty is unholy to Donald Trump. Does he think he’s a Pope?

Mitt Romney is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, more commonly called Mormons. They have their own Bible, and they have their Book of Mormon. Some critics have called these documents fictional rewrites of history, but deep down inside the doctrine of his church promotes the teachings of Jesus. Mitt is an official in his church and has served in many ordained capacities. Trump can question his motives, but certainly no one in Congress or any other branch of government should question his faith, but they will because they are worshiping the false prophet of Trump.

With the more than one-hour long-winded speech given at the White House today (2-6-2020), we can see that the business of America is solely the DONALD TRUMP SHOW. His agenda is not about uniting the nation, improving leadership or bettering statesmanship. He simply gave the Republicans a rambling, incoherent, rhetorical blowjob and retreated into the White House with his trophy wife on his arm. We are seeing the detonation of democracy right before our eyes. Trump’s gasps for air as he speaks are troublesome.

A person of greater character would have summoned his “better angels” and moved on, instead of throwing chum in the water for the circling sharks who are out to bring him down. He promises revenge and says that those who chose to challenge him should pay for their actions. Really? While stating his distrust and disdain for people like Mitt Romney and Nancy Pelosi, he played the victim card for his family. He says they have suffered so through the process of impeachment. Really? They didn’t testify either.

Donald J. Trump is a soulless human being who worships only winning and money. Perhaps when he walks his last mile he will repent and finally apologize to all the people he has hurt. Nah, that won’t happen. If there isn’t a God, when the lights go out, they will remain dark forever for this fat man lying his way to the bottom of American history.

WHITEWASHING IN WASHINGTON

Trump’s Defense Includes Large Dump of Manure

I’ve always been frustrated and impatient with the sluggish movement of government, but most historians agree that the framers wanted us to slow down and think things through. Transparency is good; secrets are bad. Law, especially Constitutional law, is often more interpretive than specific. What’s happening in the Senate Impeachment trial of Donald John Trump is frightening. The arguments on procedure by Trump loyalists have turned into downright obstruction and mendacities.

First, let’s start with the witness situation. John Bolton, or someone in the government, leaked comments from his book which set off a firestorm of dissent in the Republican ranks. Trump’s Senior Director for Records, Access and Information Security Management sent John Bolton a letter that said that “substantial parts of his book contain classified information” and cannot be published until further review. Yes, America, Trump is now thumbing his bumpy nose at the First Amendment. If you thought all those panicked people who said Trump was on his way to becoming a tyrant were overreacting, you need to recalibrate your shit detector.

Then there’s Alan Dershowitz, an elite douche bag who claims that if the president of the United States believes that being reelected is in the “public interest,” anything he does to that end is legal and not an impeachable offense. That begs this question. If a candidate acted illegally to get elected the first time, would it be okay if they truly thought it would help them win the election? The answer is NO and the sitting president is acting above the law. Dershowitz wants a place on the Supreme Court and his trial antics are designed solely to please Trump. Alan and Ken Starr bring useless opinions to these proceedings. Both are totally partisan and their comments on the matter of Donald Trump’s impeachment and their actions do more to hurt justice than promote it.

To make sure we all manage our emotions and expectations, on Friday January 31, 2020, the Senate of the United States will vote to acquit Trump and he will do his victory lap at the State of the Union on February 4th. America will become even more divided and the smirks on the faces of Republicans will drive Democrats crazy. Maybe they will work an all-out blitz to defeat Donald Trump in November, but which Democratic candidate has the juice to beat Trump to the ground?

The Democratic party is unique because of its many groups, feelings and philosophies. It’s the party of minority groups and those interested in social justice for all. The dynamic is simple. Some people are altruistic and others are clearly in it only for themselves. Republicans say they care about healthcare, education, science and climate change, but their actions speak otherwise when they help big pharm, downgrade education, ignore science and derail productive ideas on climate change.

So, the difference between the two parties isn’t that one is less patriotic; they both want America to succeed but they just don’t think in the same ways. They never will.

The whitewashing happening in this trial of Donald Trump is a clear indication that herd mentality and party loyalty are far more important than justice or truth or even facts. Whitewashing is the perfect word. It means to gloss over or cover up vices, crimes or scandals or to exonerate by means of a perfunctory investigation or through biased presentation of data. Is it unique to America? Not hardly, but when it happens in broad daylight and on national TV, it begs the question, why is this happening?

Why did our country spend $32 million on the Mueller investigation? Why did we bring charges against Donald Trump for using his office to force another country to announce an investigation that will help his reelection? Why are we ignoring the larger problems of Donald Trump? It’s not as if the Democrats of the House of Representatives didn’t present an easily understood case against Trump. It’s the system, baby. Donald Trump is hurting America in so many ways every day, but no one is guarding our democracy.

The system, as our great orator Donald Trump has decreed, is rigged. However, it’s Trump who is in the driver’s seat and orchestrating the crime. He’s in violation of uncountable rules and regulations but no one steps up and challenges him. He should NOT be having his family members working in the White House. He should NOT be redirecting funds without Congress being involved and he shouldn’t be making money by being President. It will eventually be known how much cash has been funneled through his properties because foreign nations want to be on his good side. Wait, Donald Trump has a good side?

The reaction of Trump’s personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow, on whether the President’s defense team would go along with any decision Chief Justice John Roberts, makes on witnesses, was “No, we will not accept that.” Why the fuck does a slick Scarsdale lawyer in a Senate trial get to stand and say he would not abide by the decision of the Chief Justice? In a real trial Mr. Sekulow would have been held in contempt and ushered out of the courtroom. These Trump people are not law-abiding citizens.

Here it is folks. The Republicans in the US Senate, the Chief Justice, with his hands tied behind his back, and 42% of the American public are about to codify the notion that the President of the United States is above the law. Tragically, there is NOTHING we can do about it. Maybe they will bring in Mick Mulvaney to gavel out the proceeding on Friday with his famous line, “Get over it!”

STRANGE BREW OF POLITICS

Trump’s Impotent Defense and Broken Oath

Why do we stretch things out? Perhaps another question with equal validity is why are we so impatient? Americans want answers to questions on the double. We marched to the other side of our country, and once we got there, we found other countries to control or take over. We have not been a fair actor in world history. Oh, sure, we hold up our great victories, but there have been many “Iran-Contras” along the way.

As we debate the absurdity of whether there should be witnesses in the Impeachment Trial of Donald John Trump, we cannot see the forest for the trees. We are fed a constant string of overanalyzed misconceptions, and most people would simply like to turn off the TV and get back to a normal life. You want that? Well then, elect a boring hard-working serious person to run the country. That wouldn’t end the petty in-fighting and political sport, but it would at least give us a chance of being neighbors again.

The tiresome, fallacious account of what happened between Trump and the new Ukrainian President presented by the Donald Defenders in the Senate isn’t worth examining. With no evidence or witnesses, the trial is a farcical façade. If you look behind the elaborate front wall, you see it’s merely a painting with only two slanted posts holding it up. Trump admitted to the deed. Why are we even doing this?

Witnesses provide evidence in a trial. Through witnesses, lawyers attempt to establish the facts that make up the elements of a case. A witness may testify on virtually any matter if the matter is relevant to the issues in the trial and the witness observed or has knowledge of the events to which he is testifying. Calling the Bidens to testify would establish a reason why Trump did what he did, but doesn’t change the fact that it was ALL wrong. He would still be guilty of breaking the American trust. By calling Joe or Hunter Biden to the Senate, candidate Trump would get what he was asking Ukraine to do, stain the Vice President.

A witness must testify truthfully. Before giving testimony in a trial, a witness takes an oath or affirmation to tell the truth and a witness who refuses the oath or affirmation will not be permitted to testify. A typical oath states, “I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God.” Donald Trump has not done this, so everything he says about what happened has zero credibility. Just to remind you, Trump is being charged with Obstruction of Congress, and there is no doubt he has obstructed this case.

Donald Trump took this oath at his inauguration, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Only time will tell if the President has truly done his best to “preserve, protect and defend” our Constitution. From my vantage point, he’s done a pretty shitty job at it.

When the President of the United States lies to the citizenry, I am deeply offended. I cannot trust a person who always lies. Most of the world knows they cannot trust the Donald. Even if Trump was at trial under oath, he would brazenly lie to the jurors. That is called perjury, and it’s a felony.

The caldron of lies that Trump and his Republican loyalists have been stirring for the last three years is more than despicable. It’s downright un-American. Those who say they must protect “their” president (or party) over the Constitution and truth itself are nothing more than witches. Of course, Donald Trump has said from the beginning this whole thing is a “witch hunt.”

The tide is slightly turning toward witnesses being called to the Senate trial, you know, like a real trial. Still, that will not change the harangue of the sycophants who, even when caught still on their knees and wiping their lips, deny they are giving pleasure to Trump to avoid pain. Those running for office in 2020 are clearly afraid of Donald Trump.

Who elected these people? One is the guy in the bright red golf pants wearing a MAGA visor at Stein Mart and another is his pushy, obnoxious wife equally decked out. They don’t even realize how silly they look. They don’t comprehend how close they are to violating this oath, “You shall not make idols,” or, “…thou shalt not have any strange gods before Me.” In the end, they will follow their purses and cast curses against those who question the legitimacy of a liar. They are blinded by the light, or is their lack of vision due to darkness?

This dogma is going to destroy democracy. This “Strange brew, will kill what’s inside of you.” If only what was inside of you was a genuine desire for the truth. If you don’t care about truth, then you don’t care about America. There, I said it. Politics are not truth and never have been, but we should be able to depend on the truth in a courtroom. If not, then what are we doing? A fair trial is justice.

PARNAS: RUSSIAN DOUBLE AGENT?

Trump Susceptible to Groupies & Secret Agents?

This is how conspiracy theories get started. You see things. You add some other data. Then you paste pictures and notes on a wall and connect them with thumbtacks and red string. Any of us can be a forensic scientist, even without training. Bear with me here. This might make more sense as you read along.

First of all, isn’t it shocking that the President of the United States could have dinner at a hotel in Washington, DC, which he happens to own, where two people who have never been vetted by the Secret Service, State Department or FBI are dining with him and discussing foreign policy? And would it not be even more astonishing if one of those guys recorded what President Donald John Trump said? Yet, it happened.

On October 9, 2019, those same two men were taken off a plane and arrested at Dulles International Airport before departing to Europe with one-way tickets. The two men are Lev Parnas and Igor Furman. The next day, this headline appeared in the Washington Post: Two business associates of Trump’s personal attorney Giuliani have been arrested on campaign finance charges. Before this happened, no one in America ever heard the names Parnas and Furman. But hold on. The next steps in this caper sound like they’re from an incredible spy novel.

When asked about the two gentlemen, Donald Trump, in performed style, said he didn’t know them and, if they are clients of Rudy Giuliani, then the press should ask Rudy about them. So, there’s the opening of yet another dirty chapter in the pathological lying and dangerous distraction that Donald Trump uses to avoid inconvenient truth. He thought his lying about knowing someone would allow him to escape admitting his involvement in stupidity.

This week, ABC News was brave enough to disclose receipt of a part-video, part-audio recording during a dinner at the Trump International Hotel where Trump, his son and others dined. The recording, likely made on April 30, 2018, are revealing. According to his attorney, Lev Parnas’ partner, Igor Furman, made the recording. You know, like spies do. On the recording, it appears the two Giuliani associates are telling Trump that the US ambassador to Ukraine has been bad-mouthing him, which leads directly to this Trump outburst, “Get rid of her! Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. OK? Do it.”

Let’s stop right here and think about this. I am sure when Trump said, “Take her out,” he wasn’t talking about dating her. It’s important to point out that Lev Parnas has no deep knowledge of political and state matters in Ukraine. Oh sure, he speaks Russian and Ukrainian but, according to Wikipedia, Parnas was born in Odessa, the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, in 1972 to a Jewish family. His family brought him at the age of three to the U.S., first to Detroit, and when he was four, to Brooklyn. [Thus, the accent] He was a student at Brooklyn College and Baruch College. He also worked at Kings Highway Realty, where he sold Trump Organization co-ops. That may have been how Trump first came to know of Parnas. In fact, Trump was introduced to this guy so many times that only a fool would believe our fat-ass president’s claim he doesn’t know him. But don’t take my word, read the news.  Even though the Donald is such a “stable genius,” he seems to have a serious memory loss when it comes to any nefarious character he doesn’t want associated with him. Trump’s claim he’s has had his picture taken with thousands of people and doesn’t remember Parnas is total bullshit.

Some news outlets are posting a photo and claiming that Parnas slipped an envelope to Trump at a fund raiser. Was that money? Parnas has been granting interviews to anyone who will have him, almost bragging about his closeness with Trump.  The world seems to be missing the bigger problem, however. The recording shows how easy it would be for a Russian, or any other country’s agent, to get inside the inner circle of the most powerful buffoon in the world.

Could Lev and Igor be Russian double agents? Who will protect our country from a president making decisions based on information given to him by possible double agents? Rudy Giuliani, the President’s personal attorney, aided and abetted these characters. On the recording, Parnas claims he doesn’t remember the name of the Ambassador he was slandering. Now Parnas admits he didn’t know that US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was “bad mouthing” Trump. He even apologized to her on TV. WTF?

So, here’s the latest, stark example of what we feared all along. Donald Trump is the most gullible, misguided and underinformed President we’ve ever had. Forget about “No collusion,” “Read the transcript” or “What I did wasn’t a crime.” This guy is incapable of discerning a play, a lie, a scheme, a plot, or a conspiracy. If a piano fell on his fucking head he would declare, “What a beautiful melody!” as the instrument’s strings vibrated against his skull. He doesn’t know what he is doing.

Let’s sum it up. Two guys, who have never been cleared or investigated by our government, are in Trump’s inner circle giving him misinformation which he then acts upon. How can this President be trusted? What if Igor and Lev have been trained to con their way into our government? What if they are being paid by Dmytro Firtash, a corrupt Ukrainian businessman with ties to the Kremlin? Oh, yeah, they are. Could it be that Rudy Giuliani, in his glaring stupidity, is being played by Russia and Ukraine to orchestrate a regime change in the former Soviet state? You know, start with the US Ambassador and then work their way up to the new President.

I hope you are tacking your red string up to the wall with the pictures of all these characters and the notes you have taken. Rudy Giuliani’s associates were arrested not because they were caught trying to leave the country but because Attorney General William Barr wanted to send a message to Trump that Giuliani was hurting him. Trump is so dense that he cannot read the Russian tea leaves. Giuliani wasn’t arrested on charges of violating the Logan Act because Barr knows he would be fired if he arrested Rudy. That would anger Trump beyond words. If you are curious, The Logan Act — 1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953 — was enacted January 30, 1799 and is a Federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony. Perhaps you could say it is “Treason-lite.”

The facts are simple. Russia interfered with our 2016 election with a massive, multi-million-dollar misinformation campaign, which American social media companies made a mint on yet never detected. Trump, the lessor of two evils in many people’s minds, was elected. He and his associates have been under investigation from the beginning of his campaign, obviously for good reasons. There is credible evidence that Trump has obstructed justice and Congress, but more seriously we have someone in the White House who can be played by untalented actors and agents.  Sadly, no one in the Republican party wants to admit this. Wow! Where are our forefathers when we need them?

Two thugs and cons got into Trump’s inner circle, spread the lie that Putin wanted to plant, cultivated that falsehood, promoted the conspiracy, convinced the President of the United States to act on it, and Donald J. Trump changed US policies and actions regarding another country. Hey, I’m not a Fox News guy but wouldn’t that mean that Lev Parnas is a double agent? He played the President to pull off Putin’s plan. He was paid by a third party connected to Russia and the actions taken helped another country, RUSSIA! Trump got manipulated by a double agent who he doesn’t even know is a double agent and the Senate is going to give Trump a way out of conviction. They are not impartial jurors and not smart enough to see what is truly happening. The fools in Congress are fake caretakers of the Constitution.

We need to send some thoughts and prayers out to our Democracy. Oh, too soon?

FALSE TRANSPARENCY

Trump’s Limited Vocabulary & Honesty

There are times when our children ask us a question we cannot, or don’t want, to answer. I remember a time when a teacher of one of my kid’s explained to the class that there wasn’t a Santa Claus. I know, I know, why would she do that? But the fact of the matter is what she said was true; there is no Santa Claus, but I was less than that direct when trying to comfort my kids. I assured them they would still get presents. And so, it goes. There are times in life when we find ourselves face to face with false transparency.

As youngsters, we are introduced to the notion of “little white lies.” You know, untruths which get us out of uncomfortable situations. There is never a penalty for a white lie, with the exception of someone figuring out that we lied to their face and we then lose that friendship. On the grand scale, however, everyone tells white lies. I just have never understood why we attach a color to them.

Our culture involves a reasonable amount of mythology and religious faith to support our believe in self-worth. I grew up in Pittsburgh where we learned about Joe Magarac, a bigger-than-life steel worker. It was folklore, but that didn’t stop parents, teachers, uncles and friends from spreading the story of Magarac. We all need heroes.

We also had Paul Bunyan, who was not real, but perhaps a combination of different historical characters from Canada or France. Johnny Appleseed was a real person, but his story was stretched to fit the amazing feat of him planting millions of apple trees in the Midwest, as if Mother Nature needed help. By the way, she’s not real either.

Donald Trump, unfortunately, is a real person who, for some unknown reason, tells tons of lies. It would be easy to say that he’s suffering from brain damage, but after deep research I cannot find anything that would have caused such an impairment.

Trump is not an attractive mythological character because he frightens children and can never convince more than 45% of the people that his story makes any sense. His birth story has been a lie, his growth through adulthood is filled with failures and false claims and the elderly man now claims to be the smartest of them all, but he delivers no facts to back up the claim and much evidence to prove it’s a lie.

He has a limited vocabulary and repeats trite phrases over and over. He says he loves things, but his actions show he loves nothing other than himself. Now he’s stupidly saying, “I would love to have this guy testify,” when it’s abundantly clear that is not what he wants at all.

If a woman disagrees with him, she’s “nasty” and anything that overwhelms him is “sad.” If only we knew he suffered from some neurological ailment that continually triggers his venom and sadness, we could get him some free help at Walter Reed Hospital. Now let’s address the elephant in the room, transparency.

You see, transparency is a good thing in government. Voters want to know as much as possible about the candidates, the elected officials and how the government actually works. We don’t need to review the Federal budget line-by-line, but we would like the guy who decides where the money is spent to tell us where he thinks the money should be spent.

For example, when the orange baboon on TV keeps saying, “I want clear air and crystal-clear water,” we expect that he is going to make policies and spend monies to facilitate that desire. On the contrary, this president has cut funding to the EPA and relaxed laws so companies can legally make the air worse and the water undrinkable. Once again, false transparency, or as we used to say on the streets of Pittsburgh, “He’s a fucking liar.”

There is a great quote running around the internet from former White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci. According to the Mooch, Trump once admitted that his entire political aura is an act and he cannot believe that people stupidly fall for it. Does that sound like the man who claims he’s the most transparent president for all times? Of course, it does.

America can be a great place and our achievements, quality of life and freedoms are, for most part, amazing. For those following along, “amazing” is better than “great.” Donald Trump is a false prophet brought to our country by the less than great part of America that says greed rules and a person’s ego is all that matters. So, as you watch the 53 soulless senators vote for Donald Trump and make him feel more powerful, know that they are NOT America. When the time comes, let’s vote all of them out of office.

THE BIG TRUMP TRIAL

John, Mike, Mick & Bill Must Testify

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know a big trial will be starting tomorrow in Washington. This is the trial portion of Donald John Trump’s impeachment. It’s always revealing to use all three names a person has. You know, like John Wayne Gacy and other infamous villains. We need to know their exact identity for some reason.

I have been told that the addition of Trump’s middle name in the impeachment documents was necessary because he was sworn in under that name during his inauguration. We know exactly who the defendant is and there can be no mistake that the Senate is trying Donald Trump, Jr, so we are using our president’s middle name. Silly, really.

The process of drawing up the articles of impeachment in the House of Representatives has been criticized by Republicans, White House aids and Constitutional experts, but surely these controversies will be put to the test during the trial. Hopefully. The facts are there, but few will agree to agree on these points. The House could have called more witnesses and procured more documentation, if the President didn’t stonewall Congress. And here’s another solid fact. Had the House Democrats gone the route of subpoenaing all the witnesses they wanted, the matter would have dragged on in the courts. Probably until the end of summer, when someone would have suggested, Mitch McConnell most likely, that the court should not rule on these witnesses because it would affect the 2020 presidential election. We’ve been here before.

There are some people on the public payroll who took an oath to the United States and the Constitution and who haven’t come forward to testify about these important matters. These issues are so crucial to our foreign policy and corruption in the administration that these public servants have an obligation to tell the American people what they know.

Let’s walk through these voices that have been muzzled by Donald Trump. In a previous post, we pointed out the flaw in having the person who runs the OMB (Office of Management and Budget) also be the Chief of Staff to the President. However, conflict of interest is something the present occupant of the White House doesn’t care about. He’s the actual swamp.

Mick Mulvaney is officially the Director of the Office of Management and Budget and in this quirky Trump administration, he’s also “acting” Chief of Staff. He doesn’t get two paychecks, but he does control the release of funds, such as military aid to Ukraine, and must be questioned under oath about what happened in the Ukraine-gate conspiracy. He’s already admitted on live National TV that there was a quid pro quo with the President of Ukraine, and he urged us to get over it. Okay, what would he say under oath in a Senate impeachment trial?

Next, we have Mike Pompeo, who used to run the CIA and now runs the State Department. As amazing as it might seem, it took him more than six months to be brought into the loop regarding the US Ambassador to Ukraine being intimidated by Rudy Giuliani, There was even possible spying by Rudy’s boys and a campaign to discredit her by nefarious actors. Really? He was the head of the CIA and he didn’t maintain contacts with his team there to find out what was happening in Ukraine? What a poor administrator and Secretary of State. He must be questioned under oath and show the American public if he is protecting our diplomats and ambassadors.

Then there’s William Barr, the attorney general of the United States. Now there are those people who think he the best man for the job. What’s funny about that last line is most of those folks are Republicans, but remember, the Senate confirmed William Barr to be attorney general with a 54-45 vote. 45 Democratic senators saw Barr’s previous writings about the power of the President and the “flaws” he saw in the Mueller investigations and took them as an early indication that Barr’s ideological philosophy would be used to protect Trump rather than being an objective top cop in America. New evidence has come to the forefront that may implicate Barr in the Ukraine conspiracy and coverup. Lev Parnas believes that Trump commanded William Barr, on the advice of Rudy Giuliani, to arrest Parnas and his partner, Igor Fruman, to shut them up. Giuliani and Trump may have worried that once Parnas was out of the country, he would launch a campaign of truthful disclosure that would hurt both Trump and his personal attorney.

William Barr must testify because, without the oversight of the Department of Justice, there is no justice. Barr has already refused to testify and has been found to be in contempt of Congress. Why is he still the Attorney General? He must testify.

And last, but not least, Former National Security Advisor John Bolton must come forward, be sworn and tell his story. We know that Bolton either was fired or quit during heated discussions about Syria, Turkey, Afghanistan and Ukraine. Bolton has said he will testify if subpoenaed by the Senate. Mitch McConnell, leader of the Senate, doesn’t want witnesses, but it may be too late for him to block relevant witnesses. Trump said he would claim executive privilege to keep Bolton from testifying, which any logical person would take as proof that he is obstructing Congress, one of his impeachment charges. It’s not a Catch 22 — a dilemma or difficult circumstance from which there is no escape because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions — it’s only a trick to keep the public from hearing more damaging facts that would likely come out during testimony.

No matter what happens during this historical week, Donald John Trump will have the stain of impeachment on his permanent record. When you read about him in history books, Wikipedia and the Congressional Record, it will be very clear that Trump was accused of high crimes or misdemeanors and tried in the Senate. In the past two impeachment trials, Senators concentrated on the number of votes and the articles, with little concern for the cult of personality. Clinton beat the rap, while Andrew Johnson was not victorious after winning the trial. His party took him off the ticket in 1868. So, while Trump and his talking heads keep pointing to the fact that Clinton went on to get reelected, they fail to remember how damaging an impeachment trial can be. Look at what happened to Nixon. He resigned before his trial. Will Trump be smart enough to get out before the election, or will he suffer a terrible loss because of the drip, drip, drip of more corruptive revelations?

Trump is dangerous and damaging to our republic. Let’s quote our “great southern statesman,” Lindsey Graham, “I want to put a vigorous case on that he’s guilty for the sake of the rule of law, for the sake of the truth, if nothing else,” Graham continued, “What I’m saying about witnesses is that if you take them off the table in the Senate, the next Judiciary Committee, the next independent counsel ought to do everything, because they may lose the chance to present their case and that would be bad for impeachment law. That would be against precedent, and I hope that doesn’t happen here.”

Of course, he was talking about the Clinton impeachment trial, not Trump’s, Graham is willing to do something bad for America and law. He’s putting party before his duty to protect the Constitution and will go down as one large-ass, feckless hypocrite of all time!

New Book About America

The book that tells it like it is…

Gold, God, Guns & Goofballs shows how we’ve wasted our GOLD on bad wars and corruption. While GOD is there for many people as a spiritual enrichment and the provider of glowing feelings, the truth is just praying and believing will not change our major arc. We don’t determine who gets a GUN. We aren’t sure if we have paramilitary groups ready to storm the White House or a White Castle. There is no control of weapons. The GOOFBALLS with the power constantly try to manipulate us into spending more money on bombs and tanks and wars. When all of our institutions are infected with neglect and fall in disrepair, we will only have ourselves to blame. This book is not an antidote for the left or right, it’s an accelerant to move the middle off their collective asses to go do something positive for America.

TODAY IS THE DAY

Donald Trump Faces Charges in Senate

Back in August of 2017, 200 days after our current president took office, I wrote my book, Donald Trump: Repeal, Replace, Impeach. I knew then what I know now — to remove a president from office the House of Representatives must first impeach him or her and the Senate must then hold a trial to determine if he or she is guilty. Removal from office then takes places only if the party is found guilty at the Senate trial. It’s a pretty simple process, but a president has never been removed. Why?

The first impeachment of a president was that of Andrew Johnson, who was in a no-win situation. He was on the ticket with Abraham Lincoln right after the Civil War and his main goal was bringing the country together. Johnson was a southern Democrat from Tennessee and Lincoln thought that having a southerner on the ticket in 1864 would be good for the healing that needed to take place after the war.

Republicans took control of Congress when the southern states came back and they were gunning for the Lincoln-Johnson administration. To make matters worse for Johnson, Lincoln was shot at Ford Theater on the night of April 14, 1865. Historians agree that Johnson wanted Lincoln to deal harsh penalties to the “traitors” in the south. That may have been somewhat tempered because Lincoln was killed by a southern radical sympathizer, John Wilkes Booth.

Tensions were high and the southern Republicans wanted to take “their” country back and thwart the freedom of African Americans. When Donald Trump says that what has happened to him is the worst thing that has ever happened to a president, he shows a dire ignorance of historical facts. The 16th President of the United States was murdered, and the guy who took over missed being thrown out of office by one vote.

Some say impeachment is a political process and not a legal process, but that is quite the understatement. Impeachment does take place in the House and is a political process, but once the articles of impeachment are given to the Senate a trial takes place and that is a legal process.

If you read the charges in the case of Bill Clinton and you examine the Ken Starr document detailing what Clinton did wrong, it’s totally amazing that he wasn’t removed from office. He lied under oath. His perjury stained the reputation of the presidency, yet he survived an impeachment and trial. How did he do it? This is what most experts point to when uttering the cliché that impeachment is political.

It’s too bad Richard Nixon had no trial to convict and remove him from office. That would have given solid ground on procedure and process so that we would have less grandstanding and political game playing by members of Congress.

Senate Leader Mitch McConnell belittled the serious nature of the event by saying stupid things before the articles of impeachment were sent over. Mitch might be trying to con the public and the president into believing he’s on the right side of this, but he’s just a smelly tread mark on the pavement of US history. McConnell simply wants to keep his job and do the bidding of his party, not his state or country. He’s diminished the Republican party and the Senate by declaring he’s not an impartial juror, a statement he can never take back. If Kentucky is smart, they will vote him out.

Now it’s official. The Senate will get the articles of impeachment and they will decide whether Donald Trump’s withholding of military aid to Ukraine and his shakedown of the leader of another country is legal. It’s a little like this question. Do you think it’s okay for the President to allow people and companies to increase pollution? If you answer yes, then you would also believe the President should have more power than Congress and you would probably vote to exonerate Donald Trump.

Today was an important day. Yes, the articles of impeachment were delivered to the Senate, but more evidence has been leaked from Guiliani’s clients. Is there more?

America’s strange electoral college system brought us Donald Trump. And while he basks in the glow of that win, the truth is that Hillary Clinton got three million more votes than Trump. We could change that procedure, but we won’t, and we shouldn’t. Maybe we just need someone to run for president who is honest and wins both the electoral college and the popular vote so we can have a clear mandate. Then we would have no doubt who the President is.

Do I want Donald Trump to leave office? Yes, please dear God, yes. And why do I think that? Well you could read my book but I’ll tell you why right here. Trump should be removed from office because he’s a liar. America deserves better. There are cheaters in baseball, swindlers in business and goofballs in government, but can’t we have someone at the top who really cares about the American people enough be straight and tell it like it is? Someone like John McCain, Abraham Lincoln or just about anyone with real guts and genuine smarts to rally all the people. Oh, shit, I am sounding like an optimist. Before we change the way we vote or our Constitution, let’s just change the guy at the top. He’s done nothing but embarrass our country. 


MOMENTARY HYSTERIA

Senate Leader Hypnotized by Trump

As many have said and continue to say, President Donald Trump has done nothing to bring the country together. Each day he says or does something which deepens the divide. He was investigated in the House and now we wait for the next move by our legislative branch. This is going to be a long Christmas break, with much digging in and each side repeating their talking points. This country will not move forward with talking points, rally lines or slogans. We need to the truth more than ever.

Now we have the Leader of the Senate, Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell, claiming that Trump’s impeachment is just a “momentary hysteria” by an overzealous Democratic House. But while he cannot and will not classify Donald Trump’s letter to Nancy Pelosi as hysterical, he can cast a stone toward the house that our founders built. Just as Mitch McConnell took a partisan position against permitting Merrick Garland a chance to present himself for the Supreme Court, he is building a wall to keep America from a fair impeachment trial in the Senate. He’s an ally and self-proclaimed unbiased jury. Under any normal court and voir dire, Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham would be struck from the jury pool by both sides in a trial. How can they run a fair and unbiased trial?

When one is angry and perhaps a bit hysterical, they usually act. When one is hypnotized, they do whatever the controller bids. The Senate of the United States better put on a fair and focused trial, or this whole matter of equal branches of government will be sucked down the drain. The checks and balances of our democracy are unique and special. Without the oversight of the executive branch, we will lurch toward a government by one, rather than many. If we don’t have a reasonable, brief and fair trial in the Senate, we will now see the balance of power shift to Trump, who will continue to abuse it. He just can’t help himself.

I am totally miffed that the judicial branch cannot step up and decide things faster on these immensely important issues. Why can’t the Supreme Court rule on whether White House personnel, such as Don McGahn, Mick Mulvaney, John Bolton and others should testify? This is all so important and stressful on the populace of this nation. Why can’t we, the citizens, get a speedy decision? The top court seems to be dragging their feet on judgments that should be easy to make. Does the President have the right to block all document discovery and testimony by key witnesses?

It would be so much more gratifying if some people would admit that Donald John Trump is a bad guy. He attacks people, puts down Americans, lies constantly and is nothing better than an amoral egomaniacal narcissist. There, that gets the personal stuff out of the way so let me now focus on the real danger this man is bringing to our country.

First and most importantly, he’s signing too many executive orders (136) which are not backed up with proper research. Most are favors or promises without knowledge of the long-term effects they will have on America. This is nothing new for the chief executive, but Trump’s moves have done much to harm the environment, commerce, banking, health and welfare. His attempt to eliminate cheap social Band-Aids, while running up the debt, is foolish. The US national debt is $22 trillion. In 2014, the national debt was $483 billion. Trump doesn’t care about debt; he’s declared himself the King of Debt. Trump’s businesses have declared bankruptcy six times. And this is the person we put in charge of the America economy?

There is nothing Trump does that has anything to do with normal governance and long-term stability. He’s the drunken sailor spending tons of money at the casino. Sadly, we cannot impeach or remove a president for bad acts. We can only wait for the next election and vote a worthy candidate into office. That time is coming.

I disagree with Mitch McConnell. This is not momentary hysteria; this is a well-thought-out plan to disrupt a bad choice for President. It’s not momentary. It’s ongoing and will continue until Donald Trump gets what he deserves. It’s not quite hysteria; it’s more like a rush to the finish line. The endorphins have kicked in, and those with the charge to remove will carry on. Someone needs to wake up McConnell and bring him out of his manipulated stupor. Maybe the voters of Kentucky will slap some sense into him.

Donald Trump has been impeached. No one can take that away from him. The history books and the Wikipedia page have been written. God bless America.

HYSTERICAL & HISTORICAL

Donald Trump’s Confession Letter

In times like these I would rather be on vacation, with a good book and a strong alcoholic drink in my hand. Perhaps laying on a smooth, pure, white sandy beach in the middle of the world, far away from the enraging crowd. Sadly, vacationing is not the business at hand. Today we must impeach a President.

In his missive, which could better be called a missile, launched toward Nancy Pelosi, our asshole president attempted to codify his feelings and rationalize his criminal deeds. Trump has always been a walking cliché, and his words, obviously augmented by the hands of legal counsel, do not clear the air but display his own insecurities and anger. He’s a guilty man, pointing fingers and blaming everyone else for his challenges and problems. Let’s not get sucked into his game. Take it for what it’s worth, for what it is, a confession letter.

There are potentially two broad reactions to this diatribe of defensive writing. If you support this jerk-off president, Trump’s words most likely made you angry at Pelosi and the Democrats. If you don’t like or have never liked the Donald, his letter probably inspired more dislike of the man. So, why did he write the damn thing? Oh, he said he wants to document the situation for readers a hundred years from now, which is funny. Most people won’t read it now and it’s unlikely any will read it in the future. So, what is this letter really all about?

Here’s my take. I suspect that the lawyers explained to Trump that he will not be called to testify in the Senate trial. He will be denied his Colonel Nathan R. Jessep moment, as seen in the movie A Few Good Men, where he gets to scream at everyone. “You can’t handle the truth!” Our imbecile president wanted to get everything off his chest before the vote was cast, before the verdict was in, before people forget he was the 45th President of the United States. What all of us and those to come will remember is that Donald Trump was the third president to be impeached. Bad things are remembered much longer than good things.

Donald Trump doesn’t understand that he is not the judiciary and not the legislative branch. He’s the President. He thinks simply writing the words “your invalid impeachment” are legally binding. He is wrong. A good number of the 135 executive orders he has signed have been challenged in courts of law. It’s not unreasonable to believe he has a severe insecurity disorder which forces him to amplify his own validity at every turn.

In his disillusionment of what it means to be the President of the USA, Donald Trump has failed to understand that respecting and working with all the people of the country is a prerequisite to achieving respect. His letter to Nancy Pelosi is a last-ditch effort to impede impeachment. More importantly, it will become a historical record that dramatically displays this president’s inability to make peace and bring parties together. Whatever happened to the Art of the Deal? Trump confesses that he has no ability, desire or will to work within the system or with anyone who disagrees with him.

In his letter, Trump once again described his call with the President of Ukraine and admitted it was a proposition, thinking it’s okay to solicit help from a foreign government in his next campaign. He says he did nothing wrong, and should he squeal one more time that it was a “perfect call,” half the country will throw up and demand he be removed from office.

Trump is confused by his role. He truly believes that something that’s good for him is equally good for the country. Trump has equated Ukrainian investigation into Joe Biden as a crime fighting badge. His hysterical letter to Pelosi stands as one of the most defensive and humiliating efforts by any elected president. And with that in mind, let me make a few confessions here.

First, I started writing a book the day Donald Trump was sworn in as president and completed it after his first 200 days in office. Maybe my calling for the impeachment of Donald Trump was presumptuous but let me get this off my chest. It’s okay to dislike the president. As a matter of fact, it’s more than my First Amendment right, it’s great sport in our land of liberty. There were people who hated FDR, Truman, Ike, JFK, and some lunatics out there believe that George W. Bush created 9-11, so my dislike of Donald Trump first as a person and now as president is no big deal. Where does Trump get the misconception that we have to respect him? Oh, I guess that is just another of his character flaws.

Next, Trump’s line “You are making a mockery of impeachment,” almost caused me to fall off my chair. Impeachment is bad for a president, and Donald Trump needs to get over it! Does this man even know the meaning of mockery? The clear truth is you can replace every instance of the words “Democrat” and “Pelosi” in his letter with Trump’s name and BINGO, you have solved the riddle! History will eventually show that Donald Trump made a mockery of the presidency.

Finally, (as if this could ever be the final word from your unpleasant, miserable and cruel old writer) there will not be a fair trial in the Senate for Donald Trump. The harsh reality is that unless Congress passes a “veto proof” law saying that no candidate or president can solicit help in an election from a foreign power, this matter will be thrown out of the Republican controlled Senate. They will vote to acquit him. He will live to scream at us another day and the final blow will come only when he is defeated in the 2020 election. That margin of defeat will have to be substantial, or he will never leave office. He truly believes what is good for him is good for the country. He thinks he’s a demigod.

We cannot leave it here. Let’s tie up the bow on our Christmas impeach present with some extra thoughts and prayers. First, it has been said by Trump and others that the Salem witches had more due process. Well if that’s the case, let’s throw Donald Trump in the Potomac River and see if he floats like the turd he is. One Congressman said that terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan had more due process than what Trump got in the House. Perhaps we should waterboard a confession out of 45 and move this trial along faster.

Trump accuses Ms. Pelosi of “scarcely concealing her hatred” and he challenges her assertion that she prays for him. Really? How would Trump know this unless he has a direct line to God? That aside, I have been wondering why Ms. Nancy would waste her prayers on Trump.

In conclusion, Trump writes about the “damage and hurt you have inflicted upon wonderful and loving members of my family.” I cannot talk to my family about America and our political system because of you Donald Trump. The horseshit you have been heaping on this country for the last three years will be remembered for much longer than your immature, temper tantrum letter. Your millionaire offspring will be fine, you self-serving glob of fat cells. See, you have done this to me. You make me angry every day and I do nothing to conceal it. You have altered my frame of mind and after writing one million words about the infection you have shot into the bloodstreams of America, I can only say that millions of my fellow citizens cannot wait until you are gone from office.

And now, let’s impeach this motherfucker. Hey, Stormy Daniels is a mother. Don’t shoot the messenger.

VINDICTIVE VAMPIRES & VULTURES

What Saint Trump Has Wrought

This is the time of the year when we are supposed to be thankful and feel inner peace on earth and goodwill toward men (and women). Sadly, this is not what is happening in the United States of America. We are not united, and we seem to be in a state of utter disagreement. There are some who will confront me for putting too much blame on Trump for where we find ourselves, but may I say that, like most viruses, hate has a dormant state and can be released and brought to the surface by the agitation and enabling of just one person.

Trump and his associates are vindictive vampires, sucking common sense out of half of the country, and something or someone must stop them from ruining the fabric of our nation. The vultures are circling democracy, not quite sure if it’s dead, but ready to pounce on the carcass for their self-dealing and personal gain. This is what you get when people are stimulated into selfish gains and myopic political views by the dangerous demigod in the White House. Donald Trump is an evil man with selfish intents and purposes. He cares less about the America people and more about his ego. This motor inside his mind has stolen any empathy he might have once had. He lets others do the vampire work and watches as the vultures take what they want from the roadside.

What I find supremely disheartening is that most thinking people predicted that we, as a country, would be deeply divided by the election of Donald Trump, but they were rebuked by the early sycophants and cult-like followers of this loudmouth lunatic. Shouting down, shaming and shunning is a cancer on the populace that makes blood pressures soar and tempers peak. Why should we have to live with this kind of insanity?

If I point out what is wrong with Donald Trump, I am harshly labeled a trader or “never-Trumper.” I guess that’s an accurate description of me. I have never been a Republican and have always viewed Trump as a TV clown, mediocre businessman and half-baked P.T. Barnum wannabe. I blame the press, NBC TV and cable news for making Trump seem more legit than need be. What were they thinking when they covered every one of his campaign appearances on live on TV? They gave Trump more than a billion dollars of on-air coverage. For what?

Maybe I can be rightly critical of my journalism brothers and sisters for making a mountain out of a mole’s asshole, but there is no turning back now. There must be thoughtful and public analysis of what this kind of aggressive and argumentative activity will do to the country in the long-term. Are we that lame and recalcitrant that we cannot even hear the other side of an issue?

I used to travel the world in my business and I was always ashamed at people I labeled, “ugly Americans.” They believed that the louder they talked the more someone who didn’t speak their language would understand. When they didn’t get the result they wanted, they would pitch a “hissy fit” for all to see. I always tried to intervene, but some of those vacationers were beyond help. Their pushy, bossy and unnecessary reputation makes people from other countries dislike us and distrust our motives. It comes off as brash, self-centered and unkind to many.

Trump is the embodiment of such a person. He is discourteous, discomforting and disorderly at every turn. When three American Navy seamen were gunned down at a Navy Air Station in Pensacola last week, he focused on what the Saudi King had to say about the tragedy rather than comforting those Americans who lost loved ones. He led with the phone call from the tyrant king, rather than reaching out to the parents of our fallen heroes.

Every time Trump speaks, his words divide more than help. At a speech last Saturday at the Israeli American Council National Summit in Florida, he referred to Jewish voters in the real estate business as “brutal killers” who will vote for him to dodge a wealth tax. He went on to claim, some Jews “don’t love Israel enough,” and while the crowd may have chanted “four more years,” his comments were met with much disdain. J Street, a Jewish advocacy group tweeted, “The President of the United States is incapable of addressing Jewish audiences without dipping into the deep well of anti-Semitic tropes that shape his worldview.”

While Trump was personally hurt by the report that world leaders were making fun of him for talking too much, he still suffers from the illusion that he must talk a lot to be an effective communicator. Real killers, like Dirty Harry, are usually brief, low verbal guys who get things done. It’s tortuous dictators who give long-winded speeches, continually repeating themselves, thinking that maybe if they say a lie over and over even God will buy it.

We know that Donald Trump’s actions or inactions have caused death. Ask the Kurds. Ask the airmen in Pensacola. Ask the Ukraine mothers who lost sons and daughters while they waited for US Aid. These situations are Trump’s fault and I blame him for all the hate and attacks against religions and minorities in this country. We should remove him from office and see if the crime reseeds. What do we have to lose? Just a pompous, lard ass bully!

The vindictive nature of this administration is shameful. I truly hope that after we are rid of Trump, those in his White House will never have another government job. They are part of the cancer of division. Trump may be the godfather, but the whole mafia must go as well. And here’s one more thing. His kids also should NEVER BE IN GOVERNMENT. I guess I am just being vindictive. Where did I get that?
