MISINFORMED PEOPLE

The Trumping Down of America

Every year, thousands of buzzards flock to Hinckley, Ohio. They have been doing this since 1957. I have no idea why they go there, but it leads to today’s question. When will the flocks of the country arrive at a logical perspective on Donald J. Trump? When will Republicans become clear thinking and realize that it must be country above party?

Obviously, the country is divided. The percentages are roughly 33% for Trump and 66% against him. Interestingly, we have three viable cable news networks. Two-thirds of them are against Trump and one is directly connected to his brain to make money for an Australian media mogul and his sons. This is more like Game of Thrones than a democratic, functioning government. Winter is here and it came in the form of a constitutional crisis. Trump wants more power, and if the courts and Congress give it to him, we will lose the foundation of our government.

Imagine if a school decided that all its teachers would be replaced by one crazy D-student off his meds. The classes would erupt in chaos, law makers would be summoned to hearings and parents would sue the school system. There is one executive who would be held responsible for the mess. The President. This is a great analogy for what is happening in our country.

Trump has decided that he knows more than anyone else. He believes Putin more than dedicated intelligence officers and law enforcement. His desire to proclaim a boogieman at the border and use of fear to govern the people of the United States is disturbing. He’s never graduated to a real president and he continues to be a tacky politician blaming everything on others. An authentic leader rarely takes credit and assumes blame when justified. Harry Truman’s great slogan was “the buck stops here.” Trump puts the buck in his pocket.

A friend of mine was watching CNN over the weekend instead of her favorite, Fox News. She said, “Gee, all the news they report are bad things about Trump.” I chuckled and replied, “They are super serving their base.” That is the way to get high ratings today. Stephen Colbert was doing okay until he launched his comedic attacks on Trump, then his ratings soared. The lesson is there that more people don’t like Trump than like him. It’s plain math. Are we paying attention?

Donald Trump has single-handedly dumbed down a certain segment of our citizens and they will follow him off the cliff. Many misinformed Americans are walking around believing that it’s okay to “make nice” with Russia and Putin. WTF?

Too many people are getting more aggressive and mean in the way they treat others. This is a side effect of a mean, uncaring President who has little to no empathy for anyone. I, for one, have become more aggressive as well. While I’m not particularly proud of that, it’s my nature to argue with anyone who spreads lies and propaganda. Anyone should do the same when confronted.

One of Trump’s most ardent supporters is Anne Coulter. During the press conference about his phony emergency, Trump said, “I hardly know her, I haven’t spoken to her in way over a year, but the press loves saying ‘Ann Coulter.’ Probably if I did speak to her, she’d be very nice, but she’s off the reservation.” Remember, she wrote the book, In Trump We Trust.

To her credit, Anne shot back with this tweet, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech. Forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.”

Anne has a strange world view and isn’t a patriot, but she’s not dumb. She was confronted and properly responded. I may not be a Republican, but if someone like Mitt Romney or John McCain can articulate why their viewpoint makes sense, I listen. However, I no longer listen to Trump. He makes no sense whatsoever and it’s clear that he’s in it solely for himself. Even if Mueller were to “vindicate” him, he will still be a shitty president and a lousy leader.

Will the smart people from both sides come together and make the changes we need in America today? Will honest, hard-working Americans find comfort in knowing the top guy will be replaced by someone who doesn’t lie, or will they revolt and cast aside their values to walk downwind of the demagogue? How can they endure the stench?

And here is a question for the court. When Trump says something stupid, why do you not take him at his word? Why did the courts ignore what he said about the travel ban ruling when he was a candidate? Why did the high court, in a sense, sanction Trump’s lies? This will be the question in the high court soon. Will the justices hear the words of our founding fathers and intrepret their true meaning, or have they also been dumbed down by Trump’s rhetoric?

There is no crisis at the border. It’s the same problem we have had since the beginning of America. When Trump takes credit for making America so great that everyone wants to come here, he disrespects who we are as a people. It’s the freedom they are coming to, asshole. We have always been the place people wanted to call home. That’s how my family got here. Step aside, you big orange blowhard. We have the future to face, and America will be a greater, better place only when you are gone.

BRAND NEW BOOK ON AMERICA

Gold, God, Guns & Goofballs shows how we’ve wasted our GOLD on bad wars and corruption. While GOD is there for many people as a spiritual enrichment and the provider of glowing feelings, the truth is just praying and believing will not change our major arc. We don’t determine who gets a GUN. We aren’t sure if we have paramilitary groups ready to storm the White House or a White Castle. There is no control of weapons. The GOOFBALLS with the power constantly try to manipulate us into spending more money on bombs and tanks and wars. When all of our institutions are infected with neglect and fall in disrepair, we will only have ourselves to blame. This book is not an antidote for the left or right, it’s an accelerant to move the middle off their collective asses to go do something positive for America.

BLINDED BY THE WHITE LIGHT

Drama Queen in the Oval 

If Donald Trump was a TV show, oh, wait a minute, he is a TV show. He is the main character in a dark comedy that robs viewers of their souls. When tuning in, we hear, “Previously on DONALD TRUMP: The first stupid President,” and then see and hear the same things he has been preaching over and over. But now, the leading lady, the orange drama queen, has his hands full. Russia is the problem, over there and over here.

The overtones of racism have always been part of this President’s character. He is silent on the challenge and problems of apparent police brutality and mistakes. Even the judicial branch cannot see the pain the people are feeling, and the lack of justice when it comes to brutal force of the police.

Trump doesn’t like Washington. Notice how often he runs away to Mar-A-Lago to get away from the trappings of power. He fires off tweets that show what he is really thinking, and then his staff must hustle behind the scene to edit the script to match the queen’s pronouncements.

As the Special Counsel digs deeper into the caper of Russian interference, we get little bits of scraps. The latest is that Rick Gates had met with Russian spies in October and November in 2016, right before the election. This is someone from the Trump campaign directly contacting Russians and Trump knew it, which is why he denied it so vehemently. Trump clearly lied, and now it’s beginning to look like there actually is a case of collusion, a case for obstruction of justice and maybe just plain treason.

The report that aides have leaked said they had been told not to publicize sending arms to the Ukraine or anything that would anger President Putin. The drama queen seems to be keeping some secret about her relationship with the villain.

In Paul the Apostle’s Second Epistle to the Thessalonians he said, “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will destroy with the breath of his mouth, annihilating him by the manifestation of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is apparent in the working of Satan, who uses all power, signs, lying wonders, and every kind of wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason, God sends them a powerful delusion, leading them to believe what is false, so that all who have not believed the truth but took pleasure in unrighteousness will be condemned.”

This being Good Friday, I’m not sure why it is good but let’s keep a biblical analysis here, I would content that there is a great amount of wisdom in that passage. The lawless is Hillary Clinton, as presented by the Lord, who, in this case, is Donald Trump (the way the evangelicals see him). And he killed her with the breath of his mouth. This is saying that any opposition to Trump’s rule is the work of Satan, or the anti-Christ, or, in Trump’s mind, the “deep state.”

As Trump sees it, those against him are using all of their power, signs, lying wonders and wicked deception to thwart the Great Orange Leader’s movements. It’s because the enemy refuses to love his truth.

Trump is the anti-Christ and Satan incarnate. God has sent this powerful delusion to throw us all off the track of truth. He is doing everything he can to make us believe what is false. If we just turn to the scriptures, we will clearly see what is going on with this false prophet in a passion play of the destruction of democracy.

With the Russians launching ICBM missiles last night (it is called SATAN 2, not kidding), missiles that Putin claims cannot be shot down with our defense system, Trump has a real problem with Russia and he should back off talking about how the Russian investigation is a hoax and witch hunt. He must finally admit that Russia is not his friend, and that Putin is playing him like a fiddle and that we might be getting closer to the end of times. Ooouch!

Trump, with his bad thinking, just may wake up the witches of president’s past. On this first day of Passover, it might be good to go old school (Testament) and quote Leviticus 20:6, “I will set my face against anyone who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute themselves by following them, and I will cut them off from their people.”

In the time this was written, “mediums” and “spiritists” were the people who said they had special ordained power and could know the thoughts of gods and predict the future. Clearly, the Holy Bible is condemning those who have prostituted their values by following Trump, and, indeed, they have been cut off from their people. The delusional maniac at the helm of the good ship U.S.A. has driven far away from anyone who disagrees with the Donald.

We can only hope that there is a God and that he will rise and send us some help to deal with the antichrist we have created in the image of ourselves. I guess, in the image of Roseanne, if you believe the hype of the holy babble of TV.

WHEN LIES BECOME PERJURY

Indictments are Piling up Around the President

I spent the weekend reading the multiple indictments against Paul Manafort and Richard Gates, plus the Democratic response to the biased and debasing Devin Nunes memo released earlier. It’s not fun reading, but easier to comprehend than the typical congressional bill.

What I learned about these two dastardly men is they both have the propensity to cheat and trick the system at every turn. For Manafort and Gates to be involved in a presidential campaign and transition team is a disgrace which displays a of lack of judgement and vetting on the part of the Trump people.

Can we really assume that Donald J. Trump, the candidate and the president-elect, didn’t know how these scumbags operated? Clearly, they would do anything to get what they wanted. If Manafort did what they say he did, including bribing leaders and former leaders of European countries to bend their comments to help corrupt politicians in Ukraine, he would certainly bring that same tactic to our presidential election. Remember the credo, “the end justifies the means.”  Machiavelli would be proud.

While the President discredits those who have the job of investigating bad actors and blames Obama for everything negative happening in America, we are not getting the truth. It’s all soundbites and inconsistent lies. If only the lies were consistent.

While Gates and Manafort were in the thick of the campaign to elect Trump, they were maneuvering through the RNC platform and changing the planks to eliminate their position on arming and aiding the Ukraine. They were, in effect, doing Russia’s work by getting the party to “go easy” on Russian interference in the region. Trump claims he was not involved in this change, which is believable to a point. The Donald is not a detail man.

These two hucksters had $75 million flow through their phony companies and fake bank accounts, where they laundered more than $30 million. They bilked banks by getting illicit loans on properties they owned in America. If one takes the time to read the indictments that Robert Mueller’s team has produced, they will clearly see why three of the bad guys have pleaded guilty. One could also assume that when these pleaders cough up information on the campaign players, someone is going to pay for their dirty deeds.

And now we have the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Minority memo, which covers the Democrats view of what was left out of the Devin Nunes memo which was released a few weeks ago. Significant portions of this missive have been redacted to, we assume, protect intelligence people in the field. However, those big black strikeouts could also be politically purposeful.

If you want to have a boil-down, I can tell you that much of what the President says about this memo proves that he hasn’t read it. Or, perhaps, he just says the same thing repeatedly. But there are some basic truths flowing through this memo.

The first FACT is the investigation into Carter Page started seven weeks before the FBI and those looking into Page ever saw the Steele dossier. Trump continues to latch onto his views like a snapping turtle waiting for the sun to go down.

The next FACT to consider is that Page was on the FBI’s radar for some time, as you would be if you traveled to Russia and met with Russian spies. Nobody seems to make a big deal about the fact that Carter Page lived in Moscow from 2004 to 2007. Did Trump and his transition team, which included Devin Nunes, know about Page’s Russian connection?

Really, why wouldn’t the Feds be keeping their eyes on Page? Once again, it’s Trump fault for not vetting his people and finding out if they had ties to Russia. Perhaps Trump and his campaign thought that it was a good thing and there was some value Putin’s team could provide the Trump campaign.

The mystery of Trump stepping around the horseshit littered timeline of what happened during his campaign and transition is UNBELIEVABLE. One of the smoking guns in this memo, that few have pointed out, is the line: “… the FBI would have continued its investigation, including against [BLACKED OUT] individuals, even if it had never received information from Steele, never applied for a FISA warrant against Page, or if the FISC had rejected the application.” The questions surrounding the redaction are how many individuals and who are they? Without that information it’s impossible for the people of America to have a clear understanding of this whole mess.

But there is a partisan reason those juicy pieces of information were taken out, and we all know it. The Special Counsel, through the FBI, wants to prevent these showboat Congressional committees screwing up their investigation.

From my perspective, neither memo should have been written or released. And neither memo proves that there wasn’t a conspiracy or collusion. The only document that will be useful and honest will be the final report from the Special Counsel’s office.

America needs to get back to law, justice and order to become a “normal” country again. And the drivers for this normalcy will include the impeachment of Donald Trump.

LIES AND PROMISES

Trump Sinking into Swamp

The news that blasted across the media today was not surprising for those who have been following the salacious lies and sophomoric antics of an inexperienced, half-baked pumpkin politician who somehow was elected President. Retired General Michael Flynn has been charged with lying to the FBI. Flynn was Trump’s guy and held one of the most important positions in the administration for 24 days. He was privy to all security documents and top-secret information while working with foreign entities. If we were at war, he could be charged with treason.

For those asking what this means, Section 1001 of Title 18 of the United States Code states it’s against the law to knowingly and willfully make false or fraudulent statements, or conceal information, in “any matter within the jurisdiction” of the federal government of the United States. If convicted, one must either pay a fine, or go to jail for up to five years. Would Michael Flynn throw Trump under the bus to avoid five years in prison?

Trump has lied about many things. Trump said that Michael Flynn is a “good guy,” and in the end we will find out that there has been a glorified cover-up by then President-elect, and now President, of the United States. Imagine if the lunch today (12-1-2017) with Rex Tillerson produces a resignation. That would bring the number of people who have left the Trump Administration to more than ten people. What kind of person appoints people who apparently aren’t suited for such important positions? Or, perhaps the person hiring them has very poor judgement.

The Senate is now attempting to pass a tax reform that would add $1 trillion to the debt. What happened to Trump’s promises of reducing the deficit? He lied. Trump told us no one he knows talked to or met with Russians. He lied. The Donald said that he fired James Comey because of his Department of Justice analysis. He lied. Our Great Orange Leader told us he would not benefit from the new tax cuts. He lied. His enterprises will benefit greatly and his children will benefit by $1 billion on his death.

Lies from our President are unacceptable and have legal implications. Trump will learn painfully that he cannot tweet lies, pronounce untruths and foment hate and get away with it in America. We have a broken President, a hurtful and dysfunctional administration and a constitutional crisis here that can only be dealt with through IMPEACHMENT.

Are you brave enough to spread the word? It’s time to write to your representatives in Congress and demand impeachment. You can find their addresses and phone numbers here.
