WITCH HUNTS AND SMOKING GUNS

Trump Leaves America in Denial

Donald J. Trump, ready to embark on his long trip to meet with leaders of the world, sends his first tweet in 24-hours (5-18-2017). He lives in denial. We can only hope that he can endure the extreme vetting that an immigrant would suffer coming through customs.

We are seeing things melt away fast. Between the Comey memos, creating the possibility that Trump asked the FBI Director to let go the investigation of Michael Flynn and his ties to Russia, we also get the news that Trump was warned about Flynn by Susan Rice, Sally Yates and President Obama.  Nonetheless Trump, named him National Security Advisor. So much for extreme vetting.

Trump uses short little phrases, he probably writes on his little hands, to deflect truth and promote his agenda of lies. He claims this is the biggest “witch hunt” in American history, well he did use the word “politician.” I didn’t think Donald Trump was a politician, I thought he was different; a real swamp drainer.

But as far as witch hunts, the Salem witch trials between February 1692 and May 1693 resulted in the executions of twenty people, fourteen of them women, and all but one by hanging. Not sure you want to dredge up that piece of history with your rhetoric, Mr. Know-It-All. Witch hunts don’t usually end well for the witches.

There are many smoking guns here, but most of the people who voted for Agent Orange cannot see the smoke from the witches. They think the Media are lying and they are the witches and bitches; when, in fact, the press is being played by the leakers who have this righteous viewpoint that democracy is better when people know what is going on. The operative word here is “righteous.”

The Department of Justice has appointed a special counsel to review what happened and possibly bring charges against those who abused their power, Donald Trump is on the defense with a large smear of denial. One day Trump will wake up to the reality that the United States of America is bigger than him and his fragile ego. His self-esteem is so delicate that when the slightest breeze of truth hits it spins uncontrollably round and round.

Robert Swan Mueller III, may have a beautiful middle name, but he will be Donald Trump’s biggest problem in his life. Male swans of all species will ferociously guard their nests and in this case, the nest is our country. While the President runs around the country trying to impress other leaders, Mueller will be hard at work finding the facts.

We deserve to know the facts and get to the bottom of this ridiculous charade that this administration has perpetrated on America. If Trump did nothing wrong, then he can be managed better when both parties know the extent to which his incompetence and unethical actions have damaged the presidency and our country.

If he did something wrong, he needs to be removed from office. He cannot make money on his short stay in the White House, which means he will have to divest many properties to pay for lawsuits that will fall from the sky.

It is sad that, as great as our country is, it could have been hijacked by a con man. Is there really any difference between Bernie Madoff and Donald Trump? Maybe that’s going too far, but hey, you never know.


WHOLLY APPROPRIATE – HOLY CRAP!

Trump Recorded in the Oval by the Russians?

Wake up America, Trump and Putin are having a love affair. We have to ask the question, when do Republicans step up and do something about it? Let’s just walk through seven days of presidential disgrace.

The Donald decided to fire the Director of the FBI on May 9, 2017 because of the investigation into Russia’s tampering with the US election. Then, he had the Russians in the White House the next day, where he unknowingly gave them intel that was provided by Israel.

Let’s rewind the clock now.  On Valentine’s Day 2017 the New York Times told us that Trump asked the FBI’s to “let go” the investigation into Michael Flynn.  Incredibly, this happened just one day after Agent Orange fired Flynn.  Now we have half-baked experts discussing if this was obstruction of justice.

Obstruction consists of any attempt to hinder the discovery, apprehension, conviction or punishment of anyone who has committed a crime. The acts by which justice is obstructed may include bribery, murder, intimidation, and the use of physical force against witnesses, law enforcement officers or court officials.

When I heard Congressman Adam Schiff say we have to look at “intent” I almost laughed. Trump, in his own style, asked Comey to end the investigation into Flynn and then later he fired him. That should be a giant period at the end of the sentence and as much intent as any logical person would need.

Just when we thought that all the shoes have dropped, Putin announced that he can provided a transcript of the discussion that took place with the President on May 10, 2017 in the Oval Office. Trump not only got played by the Russians with photographs of them yucking it up, but Putin says he knows every word that was said there. This begs the question, what is secure?

If this seems to have gone too far, then you are being logical and a loyal American. If you see all this as some conspiracy to get Donald Trump, then you obviously are a member of the cult of unawareness; God bless you.

What are we going to do? We have already gone through this before, it was called Watergate. There is a moment in time when we realize that absolute power corrupts absolutely. It’s time for people like McMaster, Tillerson and Mattis to stop their attempts to bail out the loser. They are losing whatever credibility they had.

Yes, we aren’t winning because we have a loser in the White House and he has to go. President Pence will be inadequate at best, but we must stabilize the Republic and get this government back on solid American Sovereignty. There are times when people want change. Wanting something different is okay, but we also have to be open to that comprehension that our choice might not have been what is best.

Why wait four years to fix this mistake? It’s time for thinking Americans to decide what they want their country to be. We are either going to permit this perverse vision of our country or go back to a standard operating procedure that has worked for more than 240 years.

Donald J. Trump has just proved that he is unfit to be President of the United States. Is that clear enough?

 

 


BAD WEATHER IN WASHINGTON

Prognosis: No Hope in Trumpville

As the weather in America rips a path of destruction across this great nation, we do not hear the President talk about climate change. The personal tragedies and demoralizing death from ever-increasing weather fronts are never mentioned by the Donald. It’s as if domestic agenda is being written by his inability to quell the ongoing controversies about himself and his campaign and not by delivering hope to the people. Why can’t he solve that problem?

It’s clear by the tweet storms that the President’s White House has no control over his message because, quite frankly, he’s making it up as he goes. His people run out to the podium and can only attempt to sandbag the negative flow affecting the President.

There are some people who have said – I have heard this – that Donald Trump is suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder), a complex psychological condition that can be caused by many factors, including severe trauma during early childhood.

Along with pathological lying (also called pseudologia fantastica and mythomania), a behavior of habitual or compulsive lying, Trump has few sunny days. He feels compelled to repeat certain phrases incessantly because of an insecure need to be understood. Or perhaps, the repetition solidifies the lie as a truth in his mind.

As we can see when he is on teleprompter he is a poor reader, which could be the result of attention deficit disorder. This would explain why he dislikes reading.

Trump lashes out when the clouds roll in and he feels the world is against him. He lusts after praise and when he doesn’t get any, he inserts praise into his speech pattern. This might be caused by an inferiority complex, a lack of self-worth and uncertainty about himself. He constantly has feelings of not measuring up to standards. His extremely asocial behavior manifests itself by putting down people, especially Barack Obama, who he considers to be mentally superior.

But let’s get back to the weather. When destruction hit parts of America, previous Presidents would comment about the people’s hardship and give them some hope. Sometimes the leader of the free world would actually go to see the damage and experience the pain first hand. This president ignores the very people who voted for him. He only goes out to do his shtick at restricted, ticket-only political rallies.

After the airing of the interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, Agent Orange proved once again that his version of the truth should be our focus. He also finally admitted a “slight mistake” that his surrogates cannot be “perfectly accurate” because there is so much going on? What? I thought being President would be easy.

As the weather gets worse in Washington and the Trumpettes attempt to bail out Mr. Know-It-All, we all need hip boots to splash through the excrement shoveled out these days.

Now he is threatening to end the press briefings. Rather than just pass out fact sheets with your points Mr. President, why don’t you take your significant undercarriage over to the press room and take the questions yourself?

In a recent interview he attacked Stephen Colbert claiming he isn’t funny, while the more he makes fun of him the bigger he grows his audience.

Why is the President of the United States wasting his time talking about comedians? What is really ironic is that Stephen Colbert is the person who coined the term “Truthiness,” which is now in the dictionary. Donald Trump is the glowing example of living on the thin edge of truthiness; that’s no joke.

Everyone knows Comey didn’t bow to the King and that is the real reason he is gone. Who elected this guy? Time will tell if James Comey will become the John Dean of this administration. Younger readers, please Google.

This morning (5-12-2017) Trump’s latest tweet, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” When have we seen someone fire someone, personally put them down on TV, then publicly threaten them? What a very small man our “leader” is.

Obviously, the President lives in the eye of the storm, but someone needs to tell him the other side of the hurricane will get him. The winds are blowing and the currents are not in his favor.


THE ATROCITIES OF AMERICAN POLITICS

 Donald Trump Will Destroy the Republican Party

When the White House sent Sarah Huckabee Sanders out to the lectern to field questions the day after Donald Trump fired the FBI Director (5-9-2017), we saw a combative B team player who really isn’t ready for prime time. Sorry, but even though she is the DNA offspring of deep southern conservatives, Mike Huckabee and Janet McCain (no relation), we blame the President for not having the guts to come out to the press and take questions himself. He is mostly chicken-shit when confronted.

Sarah, the word Atrocity means an extremely wicked or cruel act, typically involving physical violence or injury. When you claim James Comey was guilty of atrocities you moved him into the same level as Bashar al-Assad, Saddam Husain or, wait for it, Vladimir Putin. You owe the guy an apology for your horrible word use and lack of comprehension.

As the Republican opportunists and sordid politicians line up to try to get behind the President on his obvious move to thwart investigations, there is a flaw here beyond repair for the Republican party. Poor Sarah could not have expected that the day she was to fill in for her co-worker busy with Naval Reserve duty she would make things worse. If she is the future of the party, then you might as well bring her father back.

The thinking Republicans, not Paul Ryan, who are asking the good questions will be able to say they stood up and challenged the Liar-in-Chief when he tried to shut down investigations into Michael Flynn. The Democrats are not without sin on this one.  After all you can’t call for Comey’s head and then, when Agent Orange delivers said head, pull out the word, “Watergate.”

The debate will go on for a few days as to whether this is worse than Watergate, or perhaps Watergate Lite, or maybe nothing at all; but from this vantage point we make our case that Donald J. Trump has always been the wrong person to lead America. If this leads to impeachment historians can say this was just like Watergate.

This is only the tip of the iceberg, which Donald Trump is trying to meld with his executive orders and lack of judgement on almost every issue he faces. The most astonishing aspect was the administrations lack of awareness of how this would be interpreted. If you just worked this through a logic process you would say, boy that is how they got Nixon.

Trump hijacked the Republican Party, and they let him. He hijacked the Presidency and millions of people helped him. BUT, he cannot hijack the structure of America. He cannot stop the truth from coming out, much to his frustration. He wants Mommy and Daddy to back up every one of his lies. And when someone keeps saying that he lies, they are added to his enemies list.

Richard Nixon was an ideologue, with an enemies list, who was the last to see that the country was changing. He was a scotch-drinking Quaker who was so out of touch with reality he listened only to those around him. Donald Trump may not drink alcohol but he is clearly addicted to fame. He needs to have his ego massaged everyday by those around him. This makes him dangerously manipulatable.

The RNC may be all happy that they control the Senate, the House and the White House, but are they really in control of anything? In 2018, when healthcare is costing more and hurting real people, those seats will go away and the cycle will continue. Sadly, when the Democrats regain a majority, the atrocities of American politics will kick in. That’s when nothing gets done.

What Donald Trump has brought to the surface is the many cracks in the Republican party and those who claim the country is better off with an elephant in the room. With hearings on TV so often, we get to see those ridiculous GOP ideologues like Ted Cruz who wastes hearing time with questions designed just to put down Democrats rather than to find out what is really going on. Cruz might think he is smart and impressive, but he comes off like the guy at the party who only wants to talk about what he thinks is important. Save us.

The exposure of public hearings puts on trial the lacing depth of many of those on important committees. It also showcases that the Dems are not all tree-hugging, left-winged whackos as Fox News paints them. They are generally well prepared and ask good questions. Whether you like Al Franken or not, he does have a way of getting people to .

My advice to everyone in America, keep your eyes open. Remember what you said about Obama, well double it with Trump. Are you better off yet? Are you winning? Did you get a raise? How much did they charge for that medicine today? The Republican party owns healthcare and they own Trump, poor babies.
