THE WORST DEAL EVER

More Posturing Than Progress

Here’s a twist of logic that has become the go-to harangue when Trump loses, “I didn’t need to do this, but I’d rather do it much faster.” Yes, Donald J. Trump has lost many battles while being the president. He never apologizes but certainly takes time to justify his actions when things go wrong. In most cases he over-talks and shows his real intent with poorly constructed sentences saturated in doubt.

Over the weekend we learned more from leaked cables sent to the UK government by the former United Kingdom ambassador to the United States, Kim Darroch. He said the Trump administration was, “set upon an act of diplomatic vandalism,” in its decision to abandon the Iran nuclear deal. He further opined that President Trump abandoned the Iran nuclear deal to “spite” predecessor Barack Obama. I personally wonder why Donald J. Trump hates Obama so much. Could the President be a racist?

So, the deal that Trump railed against with Iran, which was signed by China, France, Germany, European Union, Iran, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States, had no value to Trump other than something he could erase from the list of Obama accomplishments. The pact provided a way to see if Iran was enriching uranium, but Donald never believes the reports he doesn’t read. And all the money he kept referring to during his scream-filled speeches, was money we took from Iran during the sanctions. We were lawfully obligated to give that money back, with interest.

When we pulled out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (the Iran Deal), we unilaterally paved the way for Iran to do whatever they wanted. Trump not only failed the American people, but he failed those other countries that believed the JCPA could bring some stability to the region. Trump’s action made things worse.

When Trump receives criticism for his exploits, he dishes up the same red meat that his “base” loves in an attempt to get all the world to believe him. It’s not working. Not only did the UK Ambassador see through Trump, but the whole world is laughing at the fool in the White House.

When Alexander Acosta resigned from his job as Secretary of Labor, Trump brought him out on the lawn to shout at the press over a whining helicopter in a vain attempt to justify his departure. The president expressed regret over Acosta’s decision saying Acosta was a “great labor secretary” and reassured the secretary with “you don’t have to do this.” Trump made it clear that it was Acosta’s decision and not his own. Really? If he’s great at his job and Trump liked him, why would he leave? He left because Trump knows much more that most about the Jeffrey Epstein case, and in his small little mind he believes this will make it all go away. Trump fears being drawn into his own past.

Trump walked away from NAFTA and made Mexico and Canada, our most important trading partners, very uncomfortable with our government. Through the fog and insanity of Trump, the three countries did manage to get a new deal, the USMCA trade agreement. Time will tell if much was gained with this new concept, but Trump’s imaginary problems with NAFTA was more campaign rhetoric than actual crisis. It’s ironic that after the USMCA passes the trade numbers between the countries may be about the same.

One can argue that the damage of NAFTA, or any older trade deal, has already been done because the American work force was never retrained to maximize the global economy. Pittsburgh didn’t die when the steel mills closed, but the hefty union wages disappeared. But then, cheap goods and free trade were hallmarks of the Republican party, so assign blame to Nixon, Reagan and the Bushes in addition to the Democrats.

When Trump loses an argument or a deal, he calmly says “we didn’t have to do this.” We didn’t need to shut down the government to work on the budget for border security, but he did, and Americans suffered. We didn’t need to get rid of Alex Acosta, but his resignation was accepted. You see the pattern here? It would be more believable if Trump didn’t pontificate so much. We overdose on today’s lie, only to hear him rescind his entire premise. It’s a dizzy ping-pong game.

Over the weekend, Trump blasted out some extremely racist tweets against women in color in Congress. Rather than back him up, one official source of the White House said it never happened. WTF? Trump by Monday was telling anyone who doesn’t like America to go back to “their country.” Not sure why I would want to go back to Scotland, after all, my family has been here for more than 320 years. And what would he say to a native American?

Trump has no new Paris Accord. Trump has nothing signed with North Korea. Trump has no trade deal with China. Trump hasn’t replaced NAFTA with an amazing agreement that will make us all rich. Trump gives away money to farmers who are suffering because he’s a piss-poor negotiator, and he hasn’t made things better for the future farmers of America. It just might be the time for everyone to ask, “Are we really better off than we were four years ago?”

I’m sick of Donald Trump and his family. I’m sick of the President’s stupid statements and lies. I’m sick of hearing him coddle his base. And by the way, WHO IS HIS BASE? You don’t lose more than 100 people in an administration without realization that the problem is at the top. The fish rots from the head, and the head of our government is a lame-ass liar.

SYMBOLISM & THE SUPREME COURT

Trump’s Weaknesses Revealed Again

America is changing because of Donald Trump and the arduous journey back to normality will take years. I have long believed that Trump’s words and actions do not reflect his hardcore values. They’re just tools to get the job. He’s far more interested in winning than solving the problems of real people.

This brings us to the Supreme Court, which should be an apolitical body that interprets the Constitution and applies same to decisions which move the country forward. Everyone says the Supreme Court doesn’t write law, but that is bullshit. Its legally binding decisions are based on the religious indoctrination and political bias of its justices. Sorry, but that’s the truth. How can they possibly know what the founding fathers thought or meant, when much of today’s practices, terminology and language didn’t even exist back then?

In a 7-2 vote, the Supreme Court decided that a 40-foot, World War I memorial cross on public land in Maryland can stand. According to the Baltimore Sun newspaper, “The case began as a lawsuit by three people who live near the cross and the District of Columbia-based American Humanist Association, which includes atheists and agnostics. They argued that the memorial should be moved to private property or modified into a nonreligious monument such as a slab or obelisk.”

Now I know that this “important” decision hammers the First Amendment with the same tool that would have been used to chisel that cross into a slab, but reasonable minds get the point. Justice Samuel Alito wrote, “A government that roams the land, tearing down monuments with religious symbolism and scrubbing away any reference to the divine will strike many as aggressively hostile to religion.” That seems logical, but the Supreme Court is full of Catholics and Maryland is a state that has harbored both boats and Catholics for centuries. For the record, six of the Justices were raised Catholic and three came from Jewish homes. Perhaps you might want to reconsider if you believe they are free of their backgrounds and upbringings.

A chapter in my new book, Gold, God, Guns & Goofballs, describes what one sees as they travel our American highways. People are killed by the thousands each year on our roads. Almost 40,000 people die on our motorways each year, and memorial flags and crosses go up all the time. I feel they are more of a distraction and less things that should be protected.

Maybe I am being harsh on the cross, but I suggest that an Islamic edifice on the same land would not only be defaced but the Supreme Court would order its removal. Are Trump’s picks pushing religion?

They will argue that a monument holding words of a religion casts a greater shadow than a symbol alone. They will argue that crosses, which mark the graves of American soldiers, became a symbol closely linked to war. But shouldn’t the star of David, the symbol of Judaism, have equal standing and be added to the memorial? And what about an Islamic symbol, as well?

The Supreme Court had to decide if that monument should be taken down. It’s somewhat strange that their decision devalued the symbol of Christ. They are saying that the symbology of a cross is so widely used it cannot possibly offend. If this was a trademark case, the plaintiff would be up in arms. What will they do when a Swastika is erected on public land? Most people don’t know that symbol originated in the Hindu religion, although Hitler graphically flipped its perspective.

I get it. The court was dealing with only one cross and one lawsuit, but they have now paved the way for Christianity to gain more power over other religions in the US. They have said that the cross is not firmly linked to a religion. Oh, how they offend the Christians of the world. Will we now see more crosses on public lands?

The Supreme Court will never take off their robes and appear in court wearing T-shirts and jeans. They will never abandon their symbolism. Robes impart a sense of religious symbolism, like a church choir. The decorum of the court is paramount in maintaining law and order. Symbolism works where important decisions are made. Just like banning cameras from their court, the formal propriety of dress sends a message to those who must argue before them.

The Supreme Court will be tested again on the separation of church and state. I don’t understand why we have “In God We Trust” inscribed on our money. Why not put a giant cross on the new $20 bill? Why not say a prayer before every session of Congress? Oh wait, they already do that. You see, despite Thomas Jefferson’s thinking that it would be a good idea to keep God out of government, no one seems to know just how to do that.

The symbolism of racism, civil war, hate, white nationalism, the KKK, confederate flags and neo-Nazis are far greater threats to our freedoms than a cross on the side of the road in Maryland. If the Supreme Court decided to outlaw symbolisms of hate, they would be challenged by those factions using them. The bottom line is this. The Supreme Court has imposed their value system on us by deciding the presence or absence of blatant religious messaging in a symbol. Who gave them that power? The Constitution doesn’t support such a responsibility. Is it time to revisit, and perhaps restrict, the power of the Supreme Court?

A good President would try to balance the court. Along with consideration of the political leanings of candidate judges, shouldn’t their religious affiliations be examined as well? Why not have a Protestant on the court? How about an atheist? What about finding a judge who is gay or transgendered? You see, knowing how a prospective justice will rule on a woman’s right to choose is only one of many litmus tests that should be applied. If the Supreme Court cannot be unbiased, it should at least be balanced. The justices need to adjudicate things for what they are, not for what they want or imagine them to be.

THE JUDGE & THE JURY

Trump’s Nominee and the Court

We want our Supreme Court justices to be above reproach. We know that humans are flawed in many ways, but a person who sits in judgement of the most important decisions in the land needs to be honorable and fair.

For those of us who are old enough to remember Anita Hill and her agonizing testimony before an all-male panel of Senators, we know the result of that hearing gave us Clarence Thomas. In my opinion, Justice Thomas is a biased judge. But this isn’t just my opinion, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture left him out of their displays and mentioned Anita Hill’s bravery instead.

There are many in the black community who believe that some of the decisions and votes from Clarence Thomas actually turned back the clock for African-Americans in this country.  Judge Thomas’ wife, Virginia Thomas, is a well-known conservative and attorney who founded Liberty Consulting and the advocacy (lobbying) group Liberty Central. She is also a columnist for The Daily Caller and has previously worked at The Heritage Foundation. If you remember, Trump got his list of potential judges for the Supreme Court from this foundation. Virginia Thomas has more influence here than even the president.

Now we have a woman who has come forward to accuse Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court of sexual assault when he was a teenager. Just as we had with Justice Thomas, one woman could stand between him and his lifetime appointment to the court. Will this simply be another Anita Hill moment with nothing really changing, or will the #MeToo movement finally be able to block a nomination to the highest court?

One of the things the protectors of the president are asking is, “Why did this woman wait so long to bring this up?” They wonder out loud, “Why now?” It’s rather bewildering that those same people will watch TV shows about cold cases that are reopened and solved without asking that same question. Sure, technology, DNA and time have a way of bringing the truth to the surface in those shows, why not follow that same kind of logic in this real-life, critical discussion?

Brett Kavanaugh is probably not a serial rapist, but just writing those words could generate a key word connection on the internet. If reposted by enough people, the connection between the nominee’s name and that label could become a search result on Google. The jury is not only public opinion, but also the fuel for the mathematical algorithms working their magic on the search terms people use. We saw what the internet did to Rick Santorum. He is forever linked with “anal sex” when people search his last name.

I watched hours and hours of the Senate confirmation hearings and, objectively speaking, I found Kavanaugh to be quite knowledgeable about case law and the tradition of precedent. At the same time, I felt that he was much too political to be on the Supreme Court. He seemed to be pitching for the job, like a greasy whore politician. It’s what he couldn’t remember that bothered me most. And who spends $60,000 on baseball tickets?

In the past, we’ve put some far-right lunatics on the court. People of today’s generation may not remember the name Lewis F. Powell Jr., but this associate justice was appointed to the Supreme Court by Richard Nixon. He did more to help large corporations and rich people than any other justice. We wouldn’t have the Citizen’s United decision or the Hobby Lobby debacle without the road being paved by Justice Powell. If we could remove a few layers of decisions in the court, we would know the big print may giveth but the fine print taketh liberty away.

It’s likely going to be another wild week in Washington. Once again, Trump has created more fodder for the news networks with no greatness. He’s taken the memory of almost 3,000 dead souls in Puerto Rico and thrown them into the trash. He’s a womanizer and abuser of women’s rights and knows his base doesn’t care. The Great Orange Leader is only playing a character President. He’s not a real statesman.

Will the members of the Senate judiciary committee ignore the testimony of one woman from California? There are probably more secrets and lies in the thousands of memos that Brett Kavanaugh wrote while working for George W. Bush. That’s the reason Republicans don’t want people to see them. Hopefully this one woman will make them realize that they should look at everything this man has said and done in the past. Why the rush?

The good news is that anything which makes Donald Trump look bad will be dismissed. It might take the Donald a little longer to figure this one out, but in the end,  he will pluck another name from that long list of conservative judges provided by the Heritage Foundation. Like a novice at the track picking a horse, Trump will point to a name he likes and lay down another bet.

A person who could breeze right through the Senate would be Merrick Garland. He’s a good judge and an objective thinker but, unfortunately, he’s not on the sacred list. There is a reason that the people don’t get to vote on Supreme Court justices, I mean look what happened when they decided who should be president.

Judges, Juries and Shotguns

Trumpean Language and Attitudes

It doesn’t take long for the news cycle to bite its own ass. You see, we must quickly move on. We are driven to get that next story on the air or on the front page. Our country demands the speedy dissemination of information. The strong, wise people who started this enterprise known as the United States of America were driven to emulate what they left in England, where people find truth every day by reading newspapers.  We should be thankful that America was founded by a bunch of writers. Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and even George Washington loved to write and see their words printed on paper.

We have a headline writer in the White House. You may have heard his name, Donald Trump. He never bothers to illuminate his “fan base.” He wants them to see only the bullet points. He places policy or opinion, lie or fantasy, into 280-character blasts and blows them out to the world on the internet. He’s a fourteen-year-old boy sitting on his toilet believing he rules the world. He knows that words matter, but he cares not if they are true.

The cable news channels can talk endlessly about President Trump’s next pick for the Supreme Court, but that institution has already done their damage. Think Citizen’s United, cake maker, union busting and travel ban. Regardless of the imperfect concept of the Supreme Court, we must follow them. But the real test coming up is whether, when challenged by an aggressive “executive,” will they give him more power, or curb the blatant abuse?

No one ever claimed that our system of a President appointing justices for life was a good idea, but what is happening in America is clearly the opposite of what people say it is. Here’s what I mean. We claim to have no bias in our institutions, but they are all biased. I can say that on “moral convictions” I cannot support Donald J. Trump, but I can’t stop paying my taxes because of that “conviction.” They would come and arrest me.

Jarrod Ramos

Now we have another shooting in Annapolis, Maryland at the newsroom of a local daily newspaper. Five people died. We don’t know whether the ongoing legal battle and grievances the shooter had with the newspaper were the primary drama, but this writer wonders out loud if the ongoing language of the President didn’t add some fuel to the shooter’s desire to cause harm. After all, if the Free Press is “the enemy of the people,” as Trump shouts at his rallies, could that be justification for an attack? Has the Donald figured out a way to brainwash our most mentally vulnerable citizens? Hey, he did win the election.

When this killer is brought before a jury, will they see him as a willful actor in a passion play of revenge? Will the judge manage a fair trial? As many mass shooters await their day in trial, do we go back and tell their stories? Does the press give us a clear reason why someone would commit such a terrible crime, or do these shootings simply fade with time?

One of the issues that the Supreme Court might decide in their future sessions is the death penalty. We have heard Donald Trump call for the death penalty for drug dealers. He seems to think that executions are good. What a guy, huh?

In 1989, Trump took out a full-page ad in a newspaper in New York to urge the state to bring back the death penalty and execute the “Central Park Five.” It turned out that those falsely accused and incarnated men were innocent. They were set free after DNA evidence proved they didn’t commit the crime. This is an excellent reason why Donald Trump should be as far away as possible from deciding our laws. Our Great Orange Leader is no more qualified to pick judges than he is to be President.

The good news? Trump didn’t personally create the list of potential Justices. Some of the most conservative judicial review people have assembled a group of those judges who can clear an FBI investigation and please the far-right evangelicals. I am sure their decisions will be vetted and determined if they are of sound judicial mind, or not.

The reason those evangelical “holy” men give Trump a pass on pussy grabbing and lying is because they believe this is their chance to make abortions illegal again, to get the Lord’s prayer back in our schools and to eradicate all gay rights. The puritans are in charge and Trump is manipulating them for votes. In our dysfunctional society, the minorities are ruling the majority. The White House is a disgrace to the founding fathers.

With this latest shooting, we will once again go through the drill of finding out where and how the shooter got his weapon. We will mourn the five newspaper employees gunned down at work. We will talk about their wonderful lives, loves and families., We might implement better security at the nation’s newspapers and TV newsrooms, but we will do nothing about guns and mental health. Remember, even the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris had a security door.

We will probably learn that innocent people died because of what they wrote and published. Five innocent men spent more than a decade in prison because of the hate and rancor of people like Donald Trump. Five Supreme Court Justices will determine the laws of our land. Perhaps a lifelong court appointment should be decided by more than a president. If only Congress was up to the task of rejecting judges who carry with them political memberships that affect their decisions. They will not go against this President. He has bullied them into submission or resignation.

When the founding fathers defined our system up on paper, there were NO political parties or far left or right agendas. There existed only the American agenda. The sooner we get rid of Donald Trump, the faster we will get back to a real America being truly fair for all agendas.

Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie

No Soup for You, Sarah Sanders

The lyrics of 1971’s “American Pie,” Don McLean’s complex and mysterious song which laments the day that rock ‘n’ roll died, asks us to unravel the history of music and faith. It’s a bitter bite of nostalgia. Various forms of the word “die” are heard almost twenty times. Somewhere in those long, haunting lyrics, McLean makes us realize that things from our youth die just about every day. We now have one more piece of that pie sitting on our plates, the death of Democracy. Will we have to swallow it?

The 116th episode of the TV sitcom Seinfeld which first aired in 1995 introduced the “The Soup Nazi.” That show has been played in what feels like a million times in reruns. The character, Yev Kassem was called a “Nazi” because of the aggressive and excessively strict regimentation he demanded from his customers. In the classic scene, George asks for bread with his soup claiming that everyone else in line got free bread. When George presses his point, the “Soup Nazi” yells “No soup for you!” and the woman at the cash register snatches George’s soup from his hand and returns his money.

Once again, the Supreme Court has set us up. They ruled that a Colorado cake maker, based on his religious convictions, could deny baking a wedding cake for a gay couple. They attempted to soften the blow of their discrimination with language so narrow it practically applied to that one incident only. Today we learned that the Supreme Court wiped away an opinion against a florist who declined to make flower arrangements for a same-sex couple’s marriage. They sent that case back to the lower court, asking them to revisit the suit using their decision on the cake maker as a guide.

When Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen stupidly decided to go to a Mexican restaurant after separating families at the Mexican border, she was shouted out of the establishment by protesters. The refrain, “Shame! Shame! Shame!” was too much for Ms. Nielsen, and she wisely left the restaurant.

This weekend, another restaurant owner took things into his own hands and asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family to leave his restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, simply because she works for Donald Trump.

America is now going to use our freedom of speech and convictions to block people from commercial services. It’s not Sarah Sanders they were asking to leave that restaurant, rather they were asking Donald Trump to leave the White House. If Trump uses Twitter to mass distribute his beliefs and conspiracies, the only way to cut through and get our message out is to take radical steps. Hateful as it may seem to some, the President’s strident use of hate demands an equally loud voice.

Of course, President Trump had to defend his Press Secretary on Twitter, “The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”

So, this is how it goes. The President of the United States can defame and attempt to shame a restaurant because they were doing the same thing as the florist and the cake maker. He can’t handle discrimination when it happens to him.

Experts say a person can’t sue a sitting president for defamation. Is that true? Isn’t this where we’re headed? You see, with this Great Orange Leader, the Supreme Court will have to decide how much power the Chief Executive has in America. They cannot fail on this issue.

If they give him more power, we are doomed as a nation. All the Trump lovers could have to deal with the next president being worse than Donald. Or is this all just a set up to have one of his inner circle (Daughter or Son-in-Law) take the office when he is too weak to sit on the potty each morning, tweeting his vitriol and hate. Is there an adult diaper big enough to catch all the horseshit that comes out of this angry, fat, old man?

Congress, especially the Republicans, are lost. The Supreme Court is teetering on the brink of conservative nonsense and the President is losing his marbles. I’ve never said this before, but I sure hope that we have some military patriots who will protect the Constitution if need be.

That’s it folks. Sarah Sanders can’t complain about being turned away from the Red Hen because she is complicit in the remaking of an America which mirrors the values taught by her foolish father, Mike. His tweet this weekend, backing up Trump’s lie about Democrats supporting Mexican gangs, is exactly what is wrong with America. Both Sarah and Mike should probably lay off the pie and focus on the Bible. I believe somewhere in that book is the inference that lying is a sin and taking babies away from their mothers and fathers will not help during the final hours. Look it up.

GRAND JURY JUGERNAUT

Will Trump Do the Right Thing?

No man is above the law. Those who know history will recollect that it was Teddy Roosevelt who made that sentiment famous. “No man is above the law and no man is below it: nor do we ask any man’s permission when we ask him to obey it.” Theodore Roosevelt’s face is on Mt. Rushmore. People who know Donald Trump personally, claim that one of the Donald’s fantasies is to have his face on the mountain along with Teddy, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln. May God pull the hammers from any men or women who would attempt to place Trump’s mug on that sacred edifice.

Things are getting interesting in Washington, DC. The Trump legal team has used their old tactic of releasing information they thought would help their client. Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s many attorneys, took notes during the discussions with the Special Counsel’s team and constructed 49 questions, all in a row, that would likely be posed to the President by the Special Counsel. It was all the President’s men who released these inquiries, not some dark, mysterious, deep-state operative out to get the sitting president.

Supreme Court of the United States of America

This is a pattern. It’s like using the Republicans on the House Committee to release a bogus version of the investigation with a conclusion of no collusion by the Trump election campaign. And then, prompted by the inner circle at the White House, the Republicans pushed to get the James Comey memos which he put on file after each meeting with Trump. Within five minutes, those memos were leaked to the press. Trump felt the memos were proof that he did nothing wrong, but they brought the Comey matter to the front page, again. The memos helped the former Director of the FBI sell books but they did absolutely nothing for Trump’s case.

Trump thinks telling the truth is a trap. He even posted this on Twitter today (5-2-2018), “There was no Collusion (it is a Hoax) and there is no Obstruction of Justice (that is a setup & trap). What there is is Negotiations going on with North Korea over Nuclear War, Negotiations going on with China over Trade Deficits, Negotiations on NAFTA, and much more. Witch Hunt!” (We always copy and paste Mr. Trump’s tweets. Sorry about the mistakes.)

Yes, Mr. President, it is a set-up and a trap where people will ask you a few questions about what you knew and when you knew it. Trump was eager to bring his presidential opponent before a court of law and lock her up. He stated that he thinks reporters should be put in jail to force reveal of their sources. And now he is faced with a potential subpoena to appear before a grand jury. What will he do?

If he “pleads the fifth,” it will be tantamount to admitting he did something wrong. We know what Trump has said about those who use their Fifth Amendment right to not incriminate themselves. Trump is on video at an Iowa campaign rally saying, “The mob takes the Fifth. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

Donald Trump may get two accolades before he leaves office, worst president and worst legal client, ever. And his legal team must consider this. If Donald Trump appears before a grand jury, he will have no lawyers sitting next to him. And that’s when this “no man is above the law” thing would kick in. And we are sure that if this happens, as it did in the Clinton scandals, the Supreme Court will be asked to decide whether the President of the United States is above the law. This would be a perfect “Constitutional Crisis” which is generally not good for the democratic process.

If the Justices were to decide that a sitting President didn’t have to answer for anything they’ve done before being elected, during their campaign or while in office, it would send a violent bolt through the foundation of our law. The shift would codify the thinking that the President of this country is different and immune to the laws of the land. Isn’t that what we fought against in the Revolutionary War? Do we really want a king in the White House? To borrow a term that Trump likes to use, it would be disgraceful if the Supreme Court said that a president doesn’t have to testify in court. No man is above the law.

Donald Trump is not a man of law. He is a shallow person of whim and self-interest, the most corrupt president in the history of the United States. We will all learn the truth soon, but will we as Americans be able to deal with it?
