Donald Trump went to Saudi Arabia for medical treatment. He did not go there seeking peace. The first thing he did when he got there was sign an arms sale agreement. He's selling them 110 billion dollars worth of weaponry. Saudi Arabia is not expected to use those weapons for peace. So what was this really about? It was about ED. Donald has ED. That's why the Mrs. is really staying in New York. Donald's ED is so bad that he was willing to do anything to correct it. Viagra didn't work for him.
Saudi Arabia has an actual Orgasmatron. Yes, the Orgasmatron that was first seen in Sleeper is now a reality. Saudi perfected it and that's why Donald really went there. They were willing to treat his ED in exchange for the U.S. selling them 110 billion dollars worth of weaponry. Talk about "bang for the buck". Holy Moly!
Tough guy Trump is over in Saudi Arabia and he just finished selling them over 110 billion dollars worth of weaponry which includes some weapons we didn't want them to have. Oh yeah, he bowed while the king gave him a medal and danced with a sword in line with the Saudi Royal Family.
Wow! I keep hearing Aretha Franklin singing, "Mr.Bigstuff, who do u think u are?" What happened to all the tough talk Donny? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f4CyQto-0E I understand you're not going to use your favorite term "radical Islamic terrorism" when you address the Arab leaders today. Your minions are on the Sunday news shows explaining why you are not going to use that language.
What a world class hypocrite. What a bloviating ignoramus. You are a lying toad. Holy Moly!
The Republicans are like a group of children walking along the sidewalk and coming upon a large turd. One says, "It looks like a turd." Another bends down and smells it and says. "It smells like a turd." Another reaches down and picks it up and says, "It feels like a turd." Finally one snatches it out of the other one's hand and eats it and says, "It tastes like a turd." Then they all stand around and try to decide if it really was a turd after all.
Trump: Hey I have a great idea for a skit. SNL: Take your best shot. Trump: I fire U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara who is investigating corruption in NYC and looking into crimes committed by the Russians renting space at Trump Tower.
Trump: Then I fire Sally Yates, the Acting Director of the Justice Department after she tells me about Flynn's misdeeds concerning Russia.
Trump: Then I fire FBI Director James Comey because he's conducting investigations into Russian interference with our elections.
SNL: There's nothing funny about any of that. Trump: Wait for the punch line. The day after I fire Comey, I invite Sergey Kislyak the Russian Ambassador (a known Russian spy and spy recruiter), and the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, to the White House at the request of Putin.
SNL: Not funny.
Trump: Wait, wait. I don't allow the American Press to attend the meeting. SNL: You know we do political satire and it has to be funny right? Trump: Yeah, yeah. Here's the punch line. Here's the joke. SNL: Hmm. Trump: Here it comes - During the meeting I share highly classified security information with the Russians.
SNL: Ah. Not funny! Trump: What? This is bigly funny. This is great, really great comedy. SNL: No it isn't. Trump: What if we add "lock him up" chants from the audience? SNL: Goodbye Mr. Trump. The security of our nation is no laughing matter.
When Lester Holt interviewed Trump the other day, Trump said he had a "certified letter" proving that he is innocent of any wrongdoing during the elections. Trump said he had one of the "most prestigious law firms in the country, uh tremendous, highly rated law firm" write a letter saying that he had "nothing to do with Russia".
Trump said he turned over the certified letter to Lindsey Graham.
Well, if that don't beat all! Trump and his minions are totally guilt free when it comes to Russia. It's better than a letter from your mom to your teacher. It's a CERTIFIED letter. In a separate interview published in the Economist, Trump said he invented the phrase "prime the pump". Webster Dictionary reports that the phrase goes back to the early 19th century and was used when talking about government investment expenditures at least as far back as 1933.
What are we to conclude about that? Well, I for one, believe Trump has been lying about his age. He must be at least a few hundred years old, and that would account for his dementia.
Meanwhile the FBI raided the offices of Strategic Campaign Group, a Republican fundraising and campaign consulting firm in Maryland yesterday. They seized files and computers. What's that about? The Spirit told me it was about money laundering and racketeering. You know, the kind of stuff that happens when a country like Russia wants to fund Republican campaigns.
Oh yeah, apparently Trump threatened Comey in a Tweet this morning. He said, "James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
Last month several Venezuelan government workers were arrested for their involvement in selling Venezuelan passports. Yes, the country that Hugo Chavez led for years, the country that has recently moved to Communism, has a problem with people selling passports. Fast forward to China last weekend. Jared Kushner's sister, Nicole Meyer, held investment events in Beijing and Shanghai. She was pitching the Kushner family's new construction project in New Jersey.
She made it clear that she was Jared's sister. There was a large screen photo of Trump. She was looking for $500,000 investments and she was sweetening the deal by linking investments to American Visas - "golden VISAs".
Yep, we have an EB-5 program that fast-tracks the path to American citizenship by fast-tracking green cards to foreign investors who invest at least $500,000 in U.S. development projects.
How's that for free enterprise? How's that for Make America Great Again? How's that for despicable exploitation of your office and flagrant conflicts of interest? Holy Moly!
When the information about Russia's interference with our elections and its involvement with Trump's campaign staff, transition team and family came out I was very upset.
Trump's bromance with Putin has taken on a whole new meaning for me. I fear that Russia has compromised Trump's administration.
After reading this article, I fear that Russia has compromised a lot more than Trump's administration. Has the conservative right wing of the Republican Party been compromised? Has the NRA been compromised. Has the religious right been compromised?
I will be spending May Day sending out MAYDAY calls. The members of Congress who have not yet been coopted by Russians need to convene a special investigation with an independent prosecutor. They need to expose everything Russia has done to weaken and neutralize our country.
We've reached a milestone in the history of Donald Trump. He's been president for 100 days. It seems more like a 100 years - a hundred years in Purgatory.
Upon reflection, Donny said, "My fellow Americans, I truly believe that the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country's history, our country is going up, and it's going up fast" Yes, Donny has succeeded in being the least popular president in our country's history. He has told more lies than all our previous presidents combined. He has brought more Russia spies into our government than anybody ever. He has played more golf and spent less time in the White House than any previous president.
Donny's security detail has broken all records in terms of cost to the American tax payer. He has alienated and insulted more of our allies and embraced more ruthless dictators than any previous president. He has refused to show us his tax returns while profiteering from his position. Yes, Donny has taken nepotism to new levels. He has embraced the alt right movement and brought neo fascists into his administration. He rose to popularity on a campaign of hate and bigotry and he has never tired of scapegoating Muslims, Mexicans and immigrants in general. He is waging a new war on women.
Donny has shown us that he is not our president. He has destroyed whole agencies. What he has done to the EPA, Education, and HUD has never been done before. The State Department is on its knees. His cabinet is filled with incompetents. Wall Street is literally running the Treasury Department and Exxon is running State.
When it comes to failed legislative initiatives, Donny is unrivaled. He has tried to decimate our health care system twice. He is hoping to take more resources away from the poor and middle class and give them to the rich. He has signed a lot of executive orders and so far, two have been ruled unconstitutional by the courts. Speaking of which, he has trashed more judges and federal circuit courts than any of his predecessors. If this seems like a lot, it is and I have not even scratched the surface. I, like a lot of us, have been preoccupied scratching the boils that have appeared on my body since the election and inauguration.
Donny is a malevolent agent. He may be the anti-Christ and this may be the end of days the tele-evangelists have been predicting. After successfully bombing dirt in Syria and Afghanistan, Donny seems determined to start an actual war with North Korea. A war that could lead us into World War III.
Who knew? Who had any inkling of Donny's true potential? Donny the Destroyer is here. He is coming to your community soon. He is dead set on bigly screwing each and every one of us. Yes, "our country is going up, and its going up fast". We are going up in flames.
The facts are slowly coming out about what happened during the election and the degree to which Russia has interfered with our government.
Will we get the equivalent of a Watergate style investigation? Will people be charged with serious crimes? Beats me. I hope so, because this might be the most serious threat we've ever had to our country from a foreign government.
So many people involved with Trump have been involved with Russia. The Trump family has been doing business with Russians. The Russians have been interfering with elections in democracies around the world. They want to destabilize those democracies and they want to get rid of NATO. The FBI and the CIA knew about this before the election, but nothing was done about it. Instead, Russian propaganda and information illegally obtained by Russia was continually released in an effort to hurt Clinton and get Trump elected. The fact that Russia was working with Assange, Manning and Snowden did not stop Trump from asking Russia to hack information on Clinton. The fact that Manning and Snowden were engaged in espionage did not matter one bit to Trump. Sadly, it did not appear to matter to either Mitch McConnell or Paul Ryan.
Here's my theory based upon what facts have come out so far. McConnell stopped the FBI from releasing information about the investigation of the Trump campaign's activities with Russia before the election. I also see Russia as playing a much bigger role on the international stage than we may be aware of. I believe Russia has been looking to destabilize the entire West and has been responsible for some of the so called "Islamic" terrorism throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Russia couldn't defeat us during the Cold War. It could not keep up the arms race and any direct military conflict was sure to result in catastrophic loss for Russia. Terrorism has resulted in a rebirth of nationalism here and in Europe. England has voted to withdraw from the European Union. The upcoming election in France could result in the same. The EU could falter.
Trump's America First policy threatens our relationships with our long time allies and serves to legitimize similar things in Europe that hurt both Europe and NATO. Putin has been a busy boy. I believe what he has done here is simply part of a larger plan to wrest control from the West. In the meantime, China has kept us occupied with Korea in the East.
We are being squeezed and we are not alone. We are also being infiltrated. Our Congress better rise to the occasion before it's too late.
Where is Teddy Roosevelt when you need him. Holy Moly!
Remember when George W. Bush took us into Iraq? Remember the "Bush Doctrine"? Remember the argument for preemptive action in order to prevent a war?
Preemptive action is an act of war. If you strike first and a war ensues, it's on you. People who argue for preemptive action often refer to Neville Chamberlain and his appeasement of Adolf Hitler prior to World War II. What they always fail to mention is that Hitler had already committed acts of war before Chamberlain made his famous "peace for our time" speech in 1938.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FO725Hbzfls We have had a sustained peace in Korea since 1953. Ever since that time, we have had a large fighting force stationed on the border between North and South Korea. Ever since that time, we have heard a lot of sabre rattling from the leaders of North Korea. Kim Jong-un is the ruthless dictator of North Korea. From where I sit, he appears insane. He is pursuing a nuclear weapons program for his country. He is also pursuing a long range missile program. He has not started any wars.
North Korea has been testing missiles and is expected to do another atomic bomb test very soon. The whole world would rather it didn't. Donald Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at Syria last week. He ordered the launch while he was eating what he described as the "most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen". He was in the dining room at his Mar A Lago resort dining with the President of China.
Trump's act of war toward Syria has left everybody baffled. It is unclear what our strategy in Syria is. Aside from costing us some $90,000,000 dollars, the strike did little damage. Before the strike, we alerted Russia to it. The Syria foray actually got Mr. Trump some good publicity. Mr. Trump does not often get good publicity. Now Trump is threatening preemptive action against North Korea over the proposed atomic bomb test. North Korea is not Syria. Kim Jong-un is not Bashar al-Assad. I don't care how good any dessert might be, if we attack North Korea to stop it from testing an atomic bomb or if we attack it after it tests an atomic bomb, North Korea will attack someone. If it does, tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people are sure to die, including a good number of the thousands of armed forces we have there.
If North Korea lashes out it will surely attack South Korea and possibly Japan and, less likely, us. We should not attack another country unless that country first attacks us. That's worked for us over the centuries. It's still working for us. Holy Moly!
I was resolved to update this blog on a daily basis. I was inspired to do so by the Spirit. I was overwhelmed by the enormity of the bulls**t related to Donald Trump and his administration.
Trump Tower has supplanted The Tower of Babel as the mother of all confusion. It's radiating cognitive dissonance, confusion and disorientation. Anyone trying to make sense of Trump and his minions is immediately sent raving into the night.
Trump's lies and distortions are world renowned. The inconsistencies he alone generates are monumental. When you add to that the inconsistencies and distortions and misinformation coming from his appointees, you raise the level of confusion to a truly galactic level - a galactic cacophony. Last week proved to be my undoing. Information related to the Russian connections was coming in fast and furious. It was like tide coming in at the Bay of Fundi. Congressman Nunes alone sent things into orbit. When I sat down to chronicle the Russian fiasco, news of Neil Gorsuch's confirmation process started flooding the airwaves. As I turned to focus on that, the bombing of the Syrian airbase swept everything away and left us all trying to make sense of the contradictory and ridiculous things Trump, Tillerson and Haley were asserting. Good luck following any of that. China and North Korea photo-bombed the photo ops. Today, newscasters were talking about the "Trump Doctrine". Trump Doctrine? Please! Did you see Trump's announcement in regard to bombing Syria? Luca Brasi did better articulating his gift to Don Corleone's daughter in the Godfather than Trump did explaining Syria.
