MOMENTARY HYSTERIA

Senate Leader Hypnotized by Trump

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

HYSTERICAL & HISTORICAL

Donald Trump’s Confession Letter

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

RIGHTEOUS RESOLUTIONS

Trump is out of the loop

Those who are unfamiliar with the way the US government works are guilty of not paying attention. Granted, our educational system doesn’t disclose civic concepts as much as someone must learn to achieve citizenship, but there some peculiar things being done in Washington that bear mentioning.

After the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and the Constitution were completed, we needed to establish rules and policies to keep all three government branches running smoothly. On the federal level, Congress established a set of rules governing ethics and etiquette. To make things a bit more complex, the House rules differ from those of the Senate.

One regulation stipulates that members of the House should dress appropriately, which has traditionally been considered to include a coat and tie for men and appropriate attire for women. Members cannot wear overcoats or hats while the House is in session and they cannot eat, drink or smoke. Also, use of personal electronic equipment, including cellular telephones and laptop computers, is banned on the floor of the House.

The Senate has 44 rules, and one of them allows a member vote to suspend them. Strange. In either house, a member saying something bad about another member is frowned upon. They cloak this decree in the hazing reality of decorum, “A Member should avoid impugning the motives of another Member, the Senate, the Vice President or the President, using offensive language, or uttering words that are otherwise deemed unparliamentary.Ignore this directive and the chair will ask to have your words expunged from the record.

The house stipulates that a member cannot refer to another by name. Formal language such as, “the member from the great state of California,” must be used.

A Congressional member can say whatever they want outside of chambers, but while they are on the job of representing their constituency they must always be aware that words spoken in their clubhouse have power and meaning.

So, after Iowa’s Steve King said some clearly racist and neo-Nazis things online and in the press, the House rebuked him with a resolution. It’s was a public spanking, and the leaders went even further by stripping King of his positions on several influential committees.

And now we come to newly elected Ilhan Omar, from the “great state of Minnesota.” She wanted to talk about “the political influence in this country that says it is okay for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” She was referencing Israel. Her follow-up tweet, “It’s all about the BENJAMINS!” irked many pro-Israel Democrats and Republicans in both the Senate and the House. Her words felt like a Jewish stereotype and anti-Semitic trope to many members and had to be addressed by the Speaker of the House. Putting this in perspective, the annual funding Israel receives from the United States may be increased by $200 million in 2019. The total amount of aid is expected to be $3.3 billion in 2019. America holds true loyalty to Israel for both political and moral reasons. The moral grounding is based on the fact that America waited so long to get involved in World War II, we have a bit of guilt that had we gotten into the war sooner, we might have been able to stop Hitler’s murder machine and save lives.

The House of Representatives passed House Resolution 183, which condemns anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities as hateful expressions of intolerance contrary to the values and aspirations of the United States. All but 23 members voted for this resolution.

Those who voted against it were all Republicans and they included: Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Mo Brooks (Ala.), Ken Buck (Colo.), Ted Budd (N.C.), Michael Burgess (Texas), Liz Cheney (Wyo.), Chris Collins (N.Y.), Mike Conaway (Texas), Rick Crawford (Ark.) and Jeff Duncan (S.C.), Reps. Louie Gohmert (Texas), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Tom Graves (Ga.), Pete King (N.Y.), Doug LaMalfa (Calif.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Steven Palazzo (Miss.), Mike Rogers (Ala.), Chip Roy (Texas), Greg Steube (Fla.), Mark Walker (N.C.), Ted Yoho (Fla.) and Lee Zeldin (N.Y.). Steve King (R-Iowa), who was stripped off his committee assignments for remarks he made regarding white supremacy earlier this year, voted present.

Some said they voted against the resolution because it didn’t name Representative Omar by name. They claim they do not condone anti-Semitism or anti-Muslim speech and further state they are not defending or promoting bigotry against minorities, but it sure looks that way. Why would they possibly vote against that resolution? Some were told to by the “mind controllers” in their caucus, while other people, like Wyoming’s Liz Cheney, would vote against God himself for pushing any anti-Neo-Con viewpoint. She obviously got her opinions from her father, Dick Cheney, while he ended up with someone else’s heart. Unfortunately, they both have the same brain.

You may not like Ms. Omar’s viewpoint, but her election, by the people and for the people, was the result of how America has modified its welcome message. We aren’t as open to OTHERS these days and that forces people to cluster in neighborhoods and conclaves of like-minded speakers. And when they elect representatives, they tend to hold the beliefs and thoughts and prayers of those around them. Donald Trump is greatly responsible for more diversity in the halls of Congress. Remember, he called it a “Muslim” ban.

Trump, the master of English grammar and syntax, said the resolution was a disgrace. Once again, Trump was out of the loop and incoherent with his comments, swatting away a chance to show leadership. Liz Cheney said the resolution didn’t address the real problem before us, which was her way of conveying a feeling that the real problem in the House of Representatives is the Republicans are no longer in control. Trump has no clue on how government really works and will never learn. The perfect answer is to make him a one-term president, then arrest him.

BRAND NEW BOOK ON AMERICA

PETTY LITTLE BOY

Trump Shows His Major Weakness, Again

Donald J. Trump is clearly the worst president in my lifetime, pushing Richard Nixon out of that insidious position. Once again, his winning any game he is playing is more important then what is good for the country. He creates an environment where he must then boldly act to solve the very problem he created.

Trump lambasted China with tariffs which deeply affected our soy bean farmers in the Midwest. Then, he asked the US taxpayers to help our farmers out of a problem of his own creation. Trump’s actions made the prices of soy beans decrease by 50%, thereby crushing the very people who voted for him. Why wasn’t this better thought out?

He demanded money for a border wall, got $20 billion, then walked away from a grand plan to bond the wall funding with concrete immigration reform. Next, he decided to stonewall Congress and own a shutdown that seriously hurts people. Trump is asking too much of the people who support him. Government agencies, like the IRS, are calling people back to work without pay. What kind of leader is this? How is a worker unessential one day then indispensable the next?

“I will be proud to own a SHUTDOWN!”

Pelosi’s State of the Union delay letter vs. Trump’s No Fly letter is just one example of the stupid things the Goofballs in Washington do all the time. They must be bored with running the country. Trump can’t make things better, he only makes them worse.

And now we get this report from BuzzFeed that President Donald Trump personally directed his longtime former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the Moscow Trump Tower project. How many times will we hear the words, “bombshell report” before members of Congress get off their over-fed asses and do something about Trump?

Let’s first reopen the discussion about whether a “sitting President” can be indicted. There is a simple answer here, one that is far above the Department of Justice and the Executive Branch; it’s the very fiber of American Constitutional law. If we truly live in a land of laws, where no man or woman is above the law, then why would a memo that Robert Bork wrote in 2000 keep us from administering justice at the highest level of government? The law must apply to all, and it’s time to test this concept.

Impeachment is the process of cleansing a bad player from one of our three branches of government. It’s not a road well-traveled, but it has been used in the past. The cases against Presidents Andrew Johnson and William Clinton were strong political acts, and they are the only examples of how impeachment has worked in the past. In each case, impeachment proceedings failed to extricate the person from office, but we do have a remedy for a bad actor in the White House. These cases demonstrate that care must be taken to build a foundation of facts and count votes in the Senate before beginning the journey. Nixon would have been convicted, but his party leaders responsibly talked him out of the embarrassment of the ordeal.

By instructing his attorney to lie to Congress, Donald J. Trump has broken the pledge he made during his inaugural swearing-in. “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” It’s the latest example of Trump’s greatest weakness; he lies and will do anything needed to mollify his ego. His judgment is impaired. If the cabinet and Vice President were worthy of their power, they would evoke the 25th Amendment. Of course, that will never happen because Mike Pence is a man of little loyalty to truth. He is a weakling trudging the earth, pulling the might yoke of Christianity, which he places above the Constitution.

Let’s be clear. The Trump Tower project was very important to Trump and his organization, now run by his older sons. Some experts believe the Trump Tower in Moscow would have netted Trump more than $300 million. To be clear, the elements of any crime include: one has engaged in conduct in circumstances forbidden by the criminal law and while doing so, had a defined state of mind in relation to the prohibited conduct, knew that deed was wrong, proceeded with the conduct in order to create a favorable result for the individual. If he ordered Michael Cohen to lie to Congress to protect the deal, or hide his non-disclosure, Donald Trump is guilty.

But the final straw that will break the camel’s back will come from Robert Mueller’s report, not the press.

As we get closer to a national realization that Trump is bad for America and his words and actions conflict with American interests. Congress must act. If later we find out that Trump had a plan to help Russia, then we would all be complicit in the destruction of important American values. This man is not making America great again; he is slowly tearing our country apart.

We are America. We are better than this. We don’t need Trump. We need an honest, strong and moral leader.  THIS JUST IN…. 

Representative Nancy Pelosi comments on Donald Trump’s cancelling of the Congressional Delegation trip to war zones:

 “In the middle of the night, the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service provided an updated threat assessment detailing that the President announcing this sensitive travel had significantly increased danger to the delegation and to the troops, security, and other officials supporting the trip. This morning, we learned that the Administration had leaked the commercial travel plans as well. In light of the grave threats caused by the President’s action, the delegation has decided to postpone the trip so as not to further endanger our troops and security personnel, or the other travelers on the flights.”
