DESPERATE & DISTRACTED

The Growing Fear of Government

Some say that the Trump administration is a train wreck. What seems to have been ignored by this President is the fact we have had two actual train wrecks and more than 50 children have died from the flu. Where was our great leader when US citizens were in pain and dying? He was busy tweeting away for himself:

“This memo totally vindicates “Trump” in probe. But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on. Their was no Collusion and there was no Obstruction (the word now used because, after one year of looking endlessly and finding NOTHING, collusion is dead). This is an American disgrace!” One would think the President of the United States would use spell check on his phone but, no, accuracy is not his thing.

He continued his harangue, “The four page memo released Friday reports the disturbing fact about how the FBI and FISA appear to have been used to influence the 2016 election and its aftermath….The FBI failed to inform the FISA court that the Clinton campaign had funded the dossier….the FBI became a tool of anti-Trump political actors. This is unacceptable in a democracy and ought to alarm anyone who wants the FBI to be a nonpartisan enforcer of the law….The FBI wasn’t straight with Congress, as it hid most of these facts from investigators. Wall Street Journal”

While this was happening, people were injured and dying. Trump is right, the Russian interference probe is totally distracting him from being a good president. A decent leader would have been front and center on transportation safety and would have been using his pulpit to ask for more money on infrastructure. Maybe he should be calling for all the safety procedures to be put into action right now. You can’t always be anti-rules when people’s lives are in the balance.

While our president wastes his time tweeting and defending himself, two of his important appointees hit the wall. And their importance to the administration should not be ignored.

In July 2017, Tom Price appointed Brenda Fitzgerald as the Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The first job of the new Health and Human Services Secretary, Alex Azar, was getting rid of Director Fitzgerald. After POLITICO reported that the director had traded in tobacco stocks while she led the agency, she was asked to resign. And let’s not forget that Tom Price was forced to resign because of misuse of government funds using private planes.

While this was happening, Kathleen Hartnett White, who was Trump’s choice to chair the Council on Environmental Quality under Rick Perry, had her nomination withdrawn by the administration. White, not a scientist, has declared climate change findings as “the dogmatic claims of ideologues and clerics.” During her Senate hearing last November, she defended past statements that particulate pollution released by burning fuels is not harmful, unless one were to suck on a car’s tailpipe. With Ms. White’s withdrawal for consideration, we see a major flaw in the Trump presidency. There is a complete lack of responsible vetting. These people are being served up to the President by the party in power as paybacks for political deeds done dirt cheap. Not all the bad people are being found and forced out by the process of nominations and hearings. And that is what we should be worrying about. These fools Trump puts into positions of power might harm the very people the President says he is here to protect.

With the release of the phony Nunes memo, it’s clear that we have a President who is manipulating the Speaker of the House, and most Republicans who have sold their souls for political gain and job security. They, too, are flawed in their thinking. While attempting to erect a wall to protect himself from the FBI and the Department of Justice, Trump fails to understand that the men and women who sit on the Supreme Court will follow the law, not a fool soaked in Propecia.

I find it rather strange that the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, has this growing fear of the government. He is trying to make a case that those in law enforcement are against him. He should just start using #OrangeLivesMatter, because obviously he has some great fear of being abused by the people who are paid to protect us from criminals, drug-cartels, fraud and terrorists. Finally, Trump now knows how someone feels when they have been pulled over in the dead of night by an aggressive cop not willing to hear their side of the story. Poor baby.

President Trump Breaks the Law

Loose Lips, Sink Ships

Let our readers and followers mark down in their calendars that on March 4, 2017, the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump broke federal law by disclosing on his personal twitter account a United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court secrecy order by disclosing an on-going investigation into a foreign state’s interference into interfering with our national election.

OR, he is making a false claim, that can be readily verified by the court and federal agencies, and in fact, he has the power to make that information available to the public with no liability to him personally. In short, he has embarrassed himself, the judicial branch, the intelligence community and our beloved America.

Let’s review how this works: Due to the sensitive nature of what it does, the FISA court is a “secret court” with its hearings closed to the public. Records of the proceedings are kept, but they are NOT available to the public, although copies of some records with classified information redacted have been made public in the past. And this is the only way that the government claims it can fight terrorism and keep us safe. Secrecy, not what our founding fathers had in mind, has been codified into law as if these covert activities are military secrets, although the actions can be domestic in nature.

Thanks to Edward Snowden, who lives in Russia, we learned how far reaching some of these warrants have been and how US communications and internet companies bent over to give the feds more information than they claimed they ever would in their EULAs (End User License Agreements). In fact, many phone companies violate their own EULAs every day because we just don’t read that long legal document they make us sign before we click: Agree.

But let’s get back to Trump, our “leader” or as I like to call him our Bragger-In-Chief, he is not above the law. If I was to disclose the existence of a FISA warrant, I would be arrested and charged with a felony. Trump, probably is using Breitbart News as a source, and believing their “fake news” that was created by those ALT-RIGHT loonies, should make us all nervous. Imagine that Trump might use FISA to spy on his enemies, then say, well Obama did it. The president continues to use Obama as his whipping boy, sad!

Clearly there is no filtering process, thus one could argue, we don’t have a functioning administration and the executive branch is dangerously close to falling off the tracks. You may be on the ‘Trump Train’ but be warned the conductor is a lunatic.

Some people see the Donald more like an infallible false-prophet than the flawed human being he truly is. We have to make a move to replace him. This is the only way to end this circus and daily ‘SHIT SHOW.’
