STICKS & STONES – BREAK THEIR BONES

Trump’s Jingoistic Jungle of Fear

When the Ohio National Guard was called to put down what were described as riots at Kent State University in 1970, something went terribly wrong. On May 4th of that year, four unarmed student protesters were shot to death on the campus by the Guard. 13 other students were injured, and one became paralyzed for life. During the many hearings and court battles following the killings, the leadership of the Guard alleged that students were throwing rocks. Really, rocks against guns?

Now, in 2018, we have President Donald Trump saying if the people who want to claim asylum in the U.S. throw rocks at the border, they will be gunned down by the military. Ginning up fear, Trump has ordered 5,000+ forces to the border with Mexico to “defend” our country from what he has described as a dangerous caravan mob. Some followers of Trump say, “Oh, what is bothering you? He’s only joking around.” It’s not a joke when people die.

Trump’s extreme patriotism and aggressive, warlike foreign policy is mostly directed at friendly nations, rather than those who have desires to see America less influential in the world. When it comes to human rights, Trump hands a pass to the Saudis, Russians, North Koreans and even China while he looks the other way. By Trump’s inaction, he has permitted the Saudis to kill a journalist without any penalty. Perhaps he’s on their side?

If you’ve noticed, Trump has been focusing most of his campaigning energy in states with Senate seats up from grabs, not those areas where those running for the House might use his help. Our Great Orange Leaders knows the House can bring the charge of impeachment, but the Senate is where the case would be tried. Trump’s survival is more important than what might be best for America. The Donald has no ability to “Be Best!”

The strange rhetoric of the President complaining about the Pro-Trump mail bomber and the murders in a synagogue in Pittsburgh by an anti-Semite as bad things because they stole the momentum of Republican party was shameful. Has this man no decency and compassion for the people of America? Does he not care about those human beings who were killed?

Donald J. Trump is just another two-bit whore politician who thinks more about winning than actually making America better. The only thing Trump desires is control and command of a nation. He will do ANYTHING to keep his power. Lies and disinformation are his trademark. What kind of real American would play such a game? If we let the politicians lie to us at our front door, we give the money-changers a pathway into the Temple. Will we ever be able to trust anyone in Washington?

Now, more than ever, people should take the time to vote. This year we need to right the ship and give this administration some checks and balances. Because the people in the White House lie so much, there needs to be a majority in the House to have hearings on the issues at hand.

If Donald Trump orders our military to fire bullets at women and children seeking asylum in America, he will stake his claim to the blood thirsty dictator many people already see in him. Remember the words here. If Trump kills innocent people at the border, America will become just like Russia, North Korea and Saudi Arabia. Did you vote for that? Is that really the America you want? But do remember, Donald the Great will not go easily.


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.

MAD MEN RULE

Trump’s Law & Disorder

There is something rather depressing about where we find ourselves today. When you realize that 27 years after the Clarence Thomas confirmation, despite the Anita Hill testimony, we are no further along. And with each tick of the clock, it feels like we are going back to the 1950s, or worse, the late thirties in Germany.

We are being played by a racist in the White House, who bounces between his own self-fulfilling narcissism and tedious repetition of messaging. The Republican fools on the hill are just along for the ride hoping they survive. We are seeing Donald Trump attempting to reshape America in his bulbous image, and it’s an ugly, angry picture of demagoguery.

In round two of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, we witnessed the exact nature of the men who serve in the Senate. A woman came forward with her recollections, and they weren’t about to let her get in the way of what they really wanted. One could say that these men of today want to use the court and the rule of law to exercise more control over women in America. But then, that would mean that every Republican woman is complicit.

After nine hours of testimony and grandstanding, we know that a calm Californian professor is 100% sure of her memory that something bad happened to her, while an aggressive and belligerent judge stood his ground and denied any wrongdoing.

During this confirmation process, we saw how powerful men with a large platform have even convinced conservative women that the men should decide how they think and manage their bodies. Trump and his cronies are attempting to intimidate women and convincing them that speaking up against men who have done evil things is bad for America. To answer Donald Trump’s question about what man would want to come forward to take a job in this environment, I say, “A really good man.”

We can sit back and slap these modern-day mad men on the back and say, “Nice job guys,” or we can stand up to them and point out the flaws in their tone and actions. In America today, it seems like a woman’s word is still three-fifths the value of a man’s word.

And when things got a little dull and pedantic, the Senate rolled out a holier than thou southern lawyer named Lyndsey Graham to raise Cain in the embodiment of Donald Trump. Maybe this future Attorney General just doesn’t like women. After all, he has never married one and there seems to be no trail of relationships with the opposite sex to reference. This was a question that was raised when he ran for President. Now he seems to be happy by just supporting and channeling the one we have now.

Trump doesn’t care about anything now but getting reelected in 2020. If Americans sit back and lets this travesty continue, more than our rights will be taken away. Liberty is a nice word, but when all the ideologs are in charge the real people will have no say. This Kavanaugh rush job is proof they are afraid of another shoe dropping, and their wants trump morality itself.

The Senate will vote to confirm this highly political animal named Kavanaugh, but not because they think he’s a great moral light or legal intellect. They will confirm him because they were told to confirm him. The Republican male Senators couldn’t even question the female accuser themselves. They jobbed out that task to a female prosecutor from Arizona. I guess when something difficult comes along, like child birth, you ask a woman to get the job done.

Dr. Christine Ford was just a blip on the radar screen in the male control tower of politics, and she has now been sent into the night to deal with her pain alone. The Senate hearing was simply a highly partisan patronizing stunt. To quote our spineless pumpkin-president, it was just a “big fat con job.”

Trump is not a law and order president. He is a fat, old, rich, white guy who wants to tell us how to act, how to think and how to make him feel good about himself. He’s a turd in the punch bowl, a power-hungry, wannabe dictator who believes his wealth, power and fame let him do whatever he wants. Wake up America, before every day becomes an endless loop of “greatness” without freedom. It’s not America First at all, it’s Donald First.

ONE MUST ASK THE QUESTION

Why Does the Donald Hate the Maverick?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES

Trump’s Enemies List Takes Shape

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

OPEN LETER TO LAURA INGRAHAM

This is the Rot Trump Wrought

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WHEN LAWYERS LIE

The Obstructing President’s Men

President Trump is wading into the deep end of the swamp he said he would drain. This weekend (8-5-2018), one of the President’s many personal attorneys went on TV right after Trump tweeted this, “Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!”

Jay Sekulow, Trump’s personal attorney, was confronted on ABC TV on Sunday morning and about things he said previously regarding the infamous meeting in Trump Tower on June 9, 2016. Sekulow had said that Trump knew nothing of the meeting and that it was only about adoptions and the sanctions known as the Magnitsky Act. Now, Sekulow has been handed his own lie by his client’s early morning tweet.

On Fox News’ web site, the glaring headline read, “Trump attorney Jay Sekulow blames ‘bad information’ for Trump Tower statement mixup, says no sign Don Jr. under investigation.” It seems that his client lied to Jay. It also seems that his client has continuously lied to the American public, since the day he took office. Donald J. Trump is a LIAR!

One of the disconcerting things about America is our belief that there are different levels of truth and justice. Some say that attorneys are the public face of their clients and should try to sway public opinion. Others believe that you can try a case in the press and use TV reporters as shills in the quest to free a guilty man. As for the President of the United States, he can be removed from office only for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” The Senate would be the final arbiter of his fate.

It should be perfectly clear to anyone watching this charade that it began with little lies about no one in the campaign even being approached by Russians, to an array of lies that then lead to the admission that, yes, the Russians interfered in the election, yes, we may have had some meetings but nothing came of them, and, then, the audacity to pronounce that no one broke the law. Astoundingly, lamebrain Rudy Giuliani now says that colluding with the Russians isn’t against the law.

Well, it didn’t take Vox.com very long to cite this statute, 52 USC 30121, 36 USC 510 — the law governing foreign contributions to US campaigns. There are two key passages that apply here. This is the first: A foreign national shall not, directly or indirectly, make a contribution or a donation of money or other thing of value, or expressly or impliedly promise to make a contribution or a donation, in connection with any Federal, State, or local election.

Here’s the second important passage of the statute: “No person shall knowingly solicit, accept, or receive from a foreign national any contribution or donation prohibited by [this law].”

According to University of California Irvine election law expert Rick Hasen, the word “solicit,” has a very specific meaning in this context. To quote the relevant statute: “A solicitation is an oral or written communication that, construed as reasonably understood in the context in which it is made, contains a clear message asking, requesting, or recommending that another person make a contribution, donation, transfer of funds, or otherwise provide anything of value.”

We could get one thousand legal experts to weigh in here, but that isn’t the point. What’s relevant is in order to practice law these lawyers must take an oath and pass a test called the bar exam. In that legal tradition, and as officers of the court, they should tell the truth when defending their clients.  Although being bar licensed does trigger ethical obligations, they don’t actually come from the bar exam. It’s from the professional responsibility exam (that every lawyer has to take and pass within one year of taking the bar – either before or after) in each jurisdiction’s rules of professional conduct. There are remedies to address a lawyer who lies in court, but when in front of a camera and using creative messaging to attempt to make their client look innocent, they run the risk of ruining their own reputations.

The Great Orange Leader, who won the electoral college but not the popular vote, has created chaos where none was needed. Trump, the national narcissist, has disgraced his name, family and country by his actions and lies. He hardly understands the cure of Climate Change, the workings of the independent branches of government or people’s real needs. He will be stopped, if not by the Congress, surely by the awaking electorate, who know they have been played.

Sadly, all his lawyers know that the person they are representing cares not about their futures. Trump wishes only to protect himself from imaginary and real enemies. The fake fears of this man are covered up by the real jeopardy he now lives with. He lied. He knows, it just as we all know it.


A dangerous self-delusion

Trump peers over cliff, can he fly?

Your favorite President did nothing wrong!” sure sounds a lot like “I am not a crook!” When one engages in high risk marketing only two things can happen, and one is bad. In this case, the implication of the opposite is clear, he did do something wrong and he is covering up a whopper.

We are hearing tapes of the President’s voice instructing his lawyer to pay cash to hush-up a Playboy model. We are hearing him say not to believe what you read or hear. He is not well. He is not truthful and he is tearing down any respect left in the presidency of the United States of America.

The assumptive pronouncement, “Your favorite President…” is only meant to enrage the opposition. The enemy of the people is not the press, it is the people who are not checking the President’s reckless actions and statements. One group blindly follows this lunatic, while the other wants his disruption and instability to end. The resistance will pay for a clear path to normalization with a little bit of Constitutional crisis, if need be. In other words, most of the people in America think something is wrong. More than half believe Trump is doing a bad job, while the other 38% think he is being tried in a kangaroo court.

The self-delusional rhetoric from our Great Orange Leader feeds to the narrative that he is the victim, but the facts speak tons. More than 17 people have left this administration, either on their own or after being fired, with two or three of the appointments coming under fire as we speak. Might I remind everyone that these were people picked by Trump, so he must have made mistakes. Don’t hold your breath waiting for an apology.

After his fruitless photo-op with Kim Jong-Un and disastrous summit with Putin, Trump has proven that he’s an amateur on the world stage. He’s making the same mistakes which he has criticized former presidents of making. He draws his own red lines in his tweets, only to use hyperbole to divert the American public’s attention from these embarrassments. He’s a 250 pound tough guy perched on his toilet while blasting out all caps tweets. But when he gets face to face with world leaders needing a cautious approach, he kisses their asses. He spits in the faces of the allies we depend on to keep the world balanced and protected from dangerous regimes. Doing a Shylock shakedown of the NATO nations is beneath the leader of the free world. That challenge should have been kept in the family. Why give Russia hope? Or is that Trump’s primary role?

Trump’s latest eruption is another attempt to soil the Mueller Russian interference investigation. His acknowledgement of Russian interference was just another photo-op and left-handed compliment, but now he’s back to calling the whole thing a hoax. If you say that you agree with the intelligence community’s findings, but then throw massive shade on the investigation a day later, you are obviously not telling the truth. Trump equates the Mueller – Russian thing as all against him and a trick to delegitimatize his election. He’s not wrong. If Mueller finds anyone from the campaign involved in the Russian operation, Trump might be impeached just for being the benefactor of bad players within this campaign. Will any of the 17 people who left his administration be found involved in the meddling?

Trump today is attempting to move the story away from the delusional view of North Korea with a new attack on Iran. Last night’s tweet, (7-22-2018), shows the new tactic, “To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!”

Congress should pass a law that taxes the use of ALL CAPS on Twitter to pay for the Russian investigation. Trump is a shameful example of who we should not let near the nuclear codes. He’s not a “stable genius.” His actions clearly show that he’s just an over-blown, fat baby president without any knowledge of history or government. As soon as this president gets to the edge of the war cliff, will his supporters believe they all can fly with him or will he fall out of power? History and gravity will destroy this administration and take Trump to the bottom. In the end, poor little Donnie will be all alone with his money, big ties and bad makeup.

FLY LIKE AN EAGLE

National Anthem and Flag Props

On June 20, 1782, the Bald Eagle became our national emblem, and those who made that selection felt strongly that the bird was a great example of long life, great strength and majestic looks.

The Bald Eagle of North America ran into problems due to hunting and the use of pesticides, like DDT, which almost wiped them out. In 1960, experts believed that there were only 400 breeding pairs left and they were put on the endangered species list. After lots of hard work by conservationists, the birds were back and removed from the list in 2007. If you’ve ever seen a Bald Eagle up close, they are indeed one of the most special birds in the world. Their wing-span can take your breath away.

Why are we talking about eagles? Well, they are the emblem of the football team from the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. After 57 years, the Philadelphia Eagles finally won the National Football League Championship game, the Super Bowl. In the U.S.A., the team winning that big game traditionally gets an invite to the White House to be honored by the Commander-in-Chief. And that was the plan, until Donald Trump learned that only ten of the Eagles’ players were going to attend the White House celebration. Professional football teams have between 60 and 80 players and personnel.

Like a spoiled child, Trump canceled the party and attempted to blame the Eagles for the last-minute change. This President, who prides himself on fast action and flexibility, seemed rigid with the requirements on this one. To say that the Eagles were not sending a big enough team for the photo op because they wanted to pull off some political stunt was not true. The Donald immediately put together a political stunt of his own by staging a patriotic song fest on the south lawn. It’s never his fault when things go wrong.

A Philadelphia TV journalist who attended the flag waving party at the White House had an interesting report. After asking six people at the event to name the Eagles’ quarterback, none could answer. In fact, most of the people on the lawn that day were not fans of the Super Bowl Champs, but rather command-performance extras from government offices — in effect, event actors. Trump once again showed his lack of tact and inability to let a setback rest.

And this has given the Great Orange Leader an excuse to resurrect one of his major campaign rally cries and false assertions that the players have a lack of patriotism. He stirs his base with the lie that professional athletes disrespect the flag, the country and the military. Perhaps what began as a way for football players to show that black players distrust the judicial system and are focused on police brutality against people of color has now kind of become a protest against Trump himself?

As we write this, the National Basketball Championship is underway. The star player of each squad, Steph Curry and Lebron James, have said that if they win it’s unlikely their team would accept an invitation to the White House.

So, we see that when someone protests the protesters, another protest ignites. The simple calculus of this president is to never stop fighting, never apologize and never attempt to hear what anyone is saying about the other side of an issue. America is dealing with this right now, and the President who knows not what he does.

Some strategists say Trump’s putting the flag, the military and the National Anthem between himself and the large number of African-Americans who play sports is actually a form of micro-aggression against a whole race. Some trained psychiatrists might offer that the real reason behind this farce is not Trump’s hyper-patriotism, but the Donald’s downright racism.

What’s truly weird is Donald Trump thinks he is doing African-Americans a favor by being President. In his quest for votes from minorities he said to a whole race of Americans, “What do you have to lose?” The answer is in. They lost a little bit of their freedom and First Amendment rights. Thanks Goofball.

Roger Goodell, Commissioner of the NFL, along with the owners of the 32 teams have come up with their version of “Don’t ask, Don’t tell.” They ruled that players on the field during the National Anthem must stand, but those who wanted to protest could stay in the locker room. That is like sending a surrogate to a protest march. If I cannot see you, how do I know whether you’re protesting or just taking a last-minute pee?

The President’s remarks hurt a U.S. business and industry. There is a cause and effect reality that fewer people watched the game to honor the President. He has created an anti-athlete bias among his followers on an issue that would have gone away had he simply ignored it. But the big mouth Orange Man has made it a problem. Now, this matter will be played out in the courts.

Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49er who started the take-a-knee protest, has filed a grievance against the NFL for collusion against him. Kaepernick claims that the owners of the 32 teams made a pact to keep him out of the game. Most sports fans know that when the San Francisco team dropped Kaepernick, he was more qualified than most of the back-up quarterbacks in the league. Despite that, not one team offered him a job. He was “blacklisted,” a term with double meaning in this case.

It is interesting that the word “collusion” is now a part of this situation and Trump has already taken a side. I am sure when Donald Trump talks to Roger Goodell, he tells him there was “no collusion.” In fact, the use of the word collusion here is entirely correct. Trump fixates on the word “collusion” because that was a major part of his business dealings to get a leg up on the competition.

However, collusion between Russian agents and a candidate, with the intent of them helping him to win the election in the United States, is treason. Donald Trump is his own worst enemy. I’ll predict that the NFL will lose the case against Kaepernick and will have to pay him large sums of money. Trump’s words will be used against the League, which means he will once again hurt the NFL, just like he challenged the same league when Trump owned the New Jersey Generals. Trump wants only to hurt his perceived enemies, even at the risk of wounding America.
