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.

COMPREHENSIVE INVESTIGATION

Trump’s Vindictive SCOTUS Pick

Why are there so many controversies with the Trump presidency? Why have so many people departed the administration to date? Forget all that, here’s the most important question. Are we better off with Trump?

If you think that the administration’s policies are driving the stock market, then you probably think the Donald knows what he is doing. Tax cuts that benefit businesses and the very wealthy will always pump money into the stock exchange. Real growth appears to be happening, with unemployment at its lowest levels. Consumer confidence is high and there are some signs that we are running out of workers for our firms. So, what is the problem with Trump?

President Trump is a horrible judge of character and he picks the wrong people to work in his administration. With bad people in powerful positions, he’s doing more harm than good. The Brett Kavanaugh caper shows the lack of thoroughness of FBI vetting and partisan blindness of those in Congress, especially those on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Remember, Trump didn’t pick Kavanaugh. He jobbed that out to the Federalist Society. They have 70,000 conservative members and, quite frankly, the society is the NRA of judges.

Trump and his offspring are arguing that women have weaponized accusations against men for some dark and devious goal. Donald and Don Jr. are clearly demonstrating their disrespect for women, while pushing a false narrative that if you let women tell their story good people will not want to participate in the business of government. Wouldn’t that mean that appointing more women would be a better bet for America? This promotion of male privilege only serves to anger thinking women. You’ve been warned, Trumps.

Once Brett Kavanaugh claimed that his confirmation problem was some deep state conspiracy and payback from the Clintons, he lost any support I might have objectively given him. He showed that he thinks like a politician and not a judge. His anger under oath is being mocked because he portrayed himself as a victim. Is he a target of Democrat strategy or the truth? It’s a little of both, and he didn’t handle either very well.

Chris Wray, FBI Director

The President said that Brett Kavanaugh may have had a drinking problem when he was younger, even though Kavanaugh denied that under oath. It’s bad when your sponsor changes what you said and makes things worse, but that is the Donald’s biggest flaw as a person. He can’t just shut up and let things naturally progress. He believes that if he keeps talking everyone will agree with him. In fact, the more he reveals, the less credible he becomes.

Some have said that Kavanaugh was a sloppy drunk. Some have said that when he drank too much he became belligerent. His testimony demonstrated his fury and now his temperament is being called into question. Does he have the temperament to serve on the highest court? This is the same question we had about Trump and the presidency. Gee, how did that work out?

If this was a murder, an investigation wouldn’t be limited to one week. We all know that if the FBI comes up with the wrong answer for Trump, he will continue to put them down and challenge their veracity. If the FBI comes in with a “nothing to see here” review of Kavanaugh, not only will he be appointed to the Supreme Court, but Democrats will believe that Trump and White House lawyer Don McGahn scrubbed the report to get their man in.

Now we see a New York Times article that says that Brett Kavanaugh was questioned in the matter of a barroom fight in New Haven when he was at Yale in 1985. The record allegedly shows that young Brett threw ice at another man’s face during the melee. This public document points to the question of temperament and brings up the question, is it the drinking or the basic personality of the person that we should examine under the microscope?

And finally, when Kavanaugh said the words, “What comes around, goes around,” he dealt a card that disqualified him for a place on the Supreme Court. The pure meaning of the expression is, if someone treats other people badly then he or she will eventually be treated badly by someone else. I am concerned that his role on the Supreme Court will become that “someone else” who will use his decisions to get back at Democrats, or worse, anyone who challenges him. If Kavanaugh survives this week and gets voted onto the court, we are less a democracy and the #MeToo movement will explode.

MALE CHAVENISM ON TRIAL

The Lingering Stench of Trump

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ELEVEN WHITE MEN

Trump’s Fork in the Road

There is something disconcertingly obvious about how history repeats itself. I never liked Clarence Thomas, not because he seemed to be an angry African-American back in 1991, but because he lied and his judgements are purely political. And now we have another up for a job-for-life on the Supreme Court who, on the surface, also appears to be a liar.

Whatever “deep-state” plan there was to appoint a very conservative black judge on the bench of the highest court back then, I care not. But what we witnessed almost 30 years ago at the Thomas senate hearing was a group of senators who verbally protected a man by second guessing a woman. Now you might say that what Clarence Thomas did was no more than run of the mill sexual harassment in that era. From time to time, however, Supreme Court judges must evaluate things from where they sit on the high court. Thomas should have never been elevated to the Supreme Court.

But the biggest embarrassment for America is the current president of the United States. Just look at this tweet from 9-21-2018, I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!” Donald J. Trump, if at any company in America, would be setting the firm up a major law suit for creating a hostile environment. All the president’s men and women quoted in Bob Woodward’s book are right. He’s a fucking moron.   

Why no Republican women on the Senate committee? The eleven white male members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are, Chuck Grassley, Iowa, Chairman, Orrin Hatch, Utah, Lindsey Graham, South Carolina. John Cornyn, Texas, Mike Lee, Utah, Ted Cruz, Texas. Ben Sasse, Nebraska, Jeff Flake, Arizona, Mike Crapo, Idaho. Thom Tillis, North Carolina and John Kennedy, Louisiana.

I consider some of the men there nothing more than catheter bags and see no reason for them to be serving in Congress, let alone being on this committee. They are like what Trump would become if he could serve for life. O.M.G. Are you thinking “term-limits?”

Lindsey Graham has never been married, so I doubt he could judge anything about a relationship between a man and woman. Read into that whatever you want. Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and John Cornyn have their underwear so tightly twisted around their ideological excrement, I cannot believe anything they would decide would be good for all of America.

Jeff Flake and Ben Sasse seem to be reasonable people, but when given a little zap from the Republican cattle prod they both fall right into line. John Kennedy is a character with a deep-south downhome way of expressing himself, but don’t be fooled by his name. His blood runs red and he’s no Atticus Finch.

I have nothing against people getting old, but there must come a time when a person is too old to drive a car. Chuck Grassley, the chairperson of this committee, tries hard to keep things moving, but he’s 85 years old and nothing more than a tool of the good-ole boy network of the Senate. Then there’s Orrin Hatch, who is 84 and the longest-serving Republican Senator in U.S. history. It is my opinion that Grassley and Hatch should retire today at 12 noon and so we can get some Republican women on that committee.

When Orrin Hatch was asked about the accusations from a woman who says that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh attempted to rape her when they were teenagers, he showed his lack of clarity of thought. Hatch said the woman alleging assault when they were in high school must be “mistaken” and, even if the accusation is true, Kavanaugh is a “good man” and “senators should judge who he is now.” Orrin Hatch said that Christine Blasey Ford is “… mistaking something, but I don’t know, I mean, I don’t know her.”

Why would he even say that? In a court of law, he would be thrown off the jury. If he was a judge and made that comment, he would be forced to recuse himself. After he made that statement, why would he still have a vote in this matter? I will be disappointed if one of the Democrat women don’t ask for his recusal.

America has always been 50% female but they have had to scratch and claw their way to get respect. People like Sarah Palin have not helped the cause of women in politics. Anita Hill has. Are we going to believe women, or just have these eleven white men send our “women folk” back to the kitchen and stay-at-home status? We could use a few less penises on the Judiciary Committee.

Some men have moved on since 1991. Even Joe Bidden admits that, as chairman of the committee during the Anita Hill testimony, he was part of the problem. But you must gasp at the fact that Orrin Hatch is still one of the eleven angry men on the committee. What the hell are they angry about? Oh, yeah, it’s #MeToo.

It’s too late for Orrin Hatch. His only redeeming quality is that he was born in Pittsburgh, but then a lot of people can say that. He’s over the hill and half way down the drain. It won’t be too soon (January 3, 2019) until Utah puts Mitt Romney in that seat. At least we will then get a modern man with reasonable positions.

Back to the subject at hand. We will learn more next week about Brett Kavanaugh. Perhaps he will be able to lie better than he did about talking to Trump’s law firm and whether he used stolen memos when he worked for George W. Bush. Dr. Ford will have her day in court, and those eleven white men better behave or they could drive more suburban women to the polls in November.

I am sure we can count on the eleven white men to do the right thing despite the fact they have such a terrible role model in the REPUBLICAN President of the United States. Our Great Orange Leader doesn’t sleep in the same room as his spouse and he doesn’t use protection when having sex with porn stars. He seems more attracted to his daughter than his wife and, when confronted about alleged infidelity or sexual harassment, he simply denies it and walks away. His derriere is certainly bigger than his heart. Honesty is not a word you would ever use to describe Donald J. Trump. He’s merely a foolish man who built his house on lies.

When did America become so tainted by male chauvinism and old school male dominance? Oh yeah, when we elected a pig president. Oink! Oink!


WEAPONIZING PARANOIA

The Moment of Truth

There is no question that the people who voted for Donald Trump believed he was telling the truth and that he would do all the things he promised. That doesn’t make them stupid, but why do they give Trump a permission slip to constantly lie?

What we have seen in the last week is just another chapter of the highly chaotic and ill-conceived presidency of Trump. He is taking as many hits as Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico, and now the Carolinas, without any true empathy for people. He may declare that 3,000 people didn’t die on an “island,” but he cannot get away from the constantly advancing swirl of truth. By the way, to say that Puerto Rico was difficult to protect because they are an island should give no comfort to those Americans who call one of the many Hawaiian Islands home. It takes only three hours and 38 minutes to fly from Washington, D.C. to San Juan.

The book Fear by Bob Woodward and the anonymous op-ed in the New York Times by a so-called senior official in the Trump administration have, in a sense, weaponized Trump’s paranoia. If you repeatedly poke a fat, old dog with a stick, he will eventually bite. As the president runs around the halls of the White House late at night in his tighty-whities in search of his treasonous traitor who told the truth in the Times, the world continues to laugh at this bit-actor in clown clothes. We have a freaking cartoon character as the leader of the free world. Boy, are we dumb.

If Trump wanted to know the truth about deaths and hurricanes he would get off his enormous buttocks and travel to that “distant” island and simply count dead bodies. In fact, his own FEMA agency processed more than 1,500 funeral aid requests from the families in Puerto Rico who lost loved ones. They only approved about 70 of those applications but, sad and true, the number of people who died on that “faraway” island was caused by hurricane Maria, and FEMA knows it. It’s probably more than 3,000, but who is counting? Seriously, wouldn’t that be the job of the Federal Government and not a university?

We now find ourselves at the moment of truth. It’s time to rise up and take control of our government, because the man in charge is just a tin can. We need to kick him down the road and let some large FEMA truck flatten the son-of-a-bitch. Donald J. Trump is useless as a president and a person. America deserves better.

Fox News is another enabler in the weaponizing of paranoia. The prostitutes and whores who anchor their opinion shows at might are traitors to the cause of journalism and truth. Why would a news story be written with the goal of making Donald Trump look good? In the same breath, why would anyone purposefully distort the facts to make Trump look bad? Just tell the truth, my brothers and sisters.

The big logo BREAKING NEWS just flared up on my screen and it says that Paul Manafort, the former Trump Campaign Chairman, has pleaded guilty to charges in D.C. Federal court. The remaining question is this. Will Manafort now flip on Trump and tell the truth about Russians and the campaign? Did Manafort change the RNC platform to help Russian interests in the Ukraine?

Casual observers from other countries must think there is something wrong in America. The Special Counsel’s office has indicted more than 30 people, and we have five people within Trump’s circle who have plead guilty to charges. All this before the final report from Robert Mueller, which might show that the 2016 Election was highly manipulated by Russian agents and Donald Trump, the man who has been ignoring facts for most of his life. To help us understand what has happened, the Special Counsel has given us not bread crumbs, but giant loafs.

We are about to see the final melt down of a low-power nuclear lying device known as the 45th President of the United States. When this bomb explodes, the Donald will attempt to seize power and take control of America. Then, and only then, will we learn who the real patriots are in Congress. Until then, they are just a group of goofball dipshits looking for their next land deal. Impeachment is a worthy goal, so let’s just do it!

THE SAILOR & THE SINGER

Labor Day Message for America

Most people don’t work on Labor Day. There is a sense of irony this year in that it comes after a weekend of funerals, tributes and memorials. The holiday celebrates working people in America, and I am sure for many employers it’s the day before they expect the work force to come back and buckle down. This weekend will never be forgotten.

As our nation watched the services and memorials for Aretha Franklin and Senator John McCain, we looked at our past and thought about better times. You could cut the tension at times because it was obvious that these venues were used by some to stand their ground against a president who, like the child he is, was put in “time-out” for the weekend.

There was a sense of calm on the front pages in America. Thankfully, they were mostly Trump-free for a few days. After all, we honor our heroes, because they were captured. We celebrated the life of Aretha Franklin, not because she had the most soulful voice of any living diva, but because of the quality of her character. She was part of the civil rights movement, not with some grand entrance but always there in spirit and song. So, when the knucklehead in the White House said, “Aretha worked for me” the fists of African-American leaders clenched. They could not stand by and hear the tone of ownership coming from our Great Orange Leader’s little, round lips without the rebuke, “She didn’t work for you! She performed for you and she worked for us.”

John McCain’s passing doesn’t change who those people are in Washington, but somewhere in the middle of all the services, speeches and spectacles, we learned a little more about what it takes to be a “real man” in America today. What cut through the tears and sorrow was that it’s okay to apologize when you are wrong.

I also heard that caring for other people was a good thing, and that marginalizing any person or group in America is, quite frankly, un-American. What I also heard through the smiles and memories is that America has always been great.

The reason America has always been great is because of people like the Queen of Soul and The Maverick. They aren’t illusions, they are real. As we turn the page on another summer in America, let’s ask a few questions about who we are as a people.

Are we going to permit half-baked zealots and ideologs to steer our ship toward division and destruction? Isn’t there a way to listen to what the middle of the political spectrum wants and needs? Is there such a thing as a Progressive Republican or a Conservative Democrat? Shouldn’t 60% of America get to decide where we are going as a nation?

While we were burying our heroes, Donald Trump was busy playing golf. While America looked inside our souls to feel and heal, the leader of the free world offers us nothing but negativity, threats and fear. It must stop.

We cannot change Donald Trump, but we can change the person who is the presidency, after all it’s only an office and no man is above the law. Let’s get to work!

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.”

ONE MUST ASK THE QUESTION

Why Does the Donald Hate the Maverick?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

#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.
