Gee Whiz Batman - Who Knew?

Donny Dimwit met with health insurance CEOs and Governors today in separate meetings. The meetings were extraordinary in that they really, really, I mean bigly really, gave us new insight into the depths of the Dimwits ignorance and stupidity.

He urged the CEOs to work together to save Americans from Obamacare. I'm trying to imagine this. I'm thinking it's a 40's college football movie. You know - boola, boola - "win one for the Gipper". S**t, it was only a matter of giving an inspirational speech to the choir boys heading up the health insurance industry. Too bad President Obama didn't know this. Too bad President Obama didn't know how to give an inspirational speech.

Dumbo actually said to the governors, "... nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated ..." Yes, he really, really said this. I can't wait to see what happens when, and if, someone tells him the truth about the Easter Bunny.

In an effort not to be undone by S**t For Brains Don at the meeting with the governors, Florida's entry for 2017 Village Idiot, Rick Scott, said, "You can't treat an expansion state better than a non-expansion state; because you did an expansion, you should not get more dollars." Yes, Florida's Imbecile in Chief didn't opt for the Medicaid Expansion unlike the former governor of Arizona, Jan Brewer, who did. Jan wasn't a Rhodes Scholar, but she did get a "radiological technologist certificate" from a community college.

Trump's Bully Pulpit

Maybe we should require all potential political candidates to pass a test on the U.S. Constitution before allowing them to run for office. The passing grade for that should be 100.

Yesterday Dickless Don revoked President Obama's guidelines on the use of bathroom's in public schools by transgender students. Dickless said he believed this was a matter of states' rights. Yes, Dickless wants to take America back to the mentality that gave us slavery.

Our Constitution is all about the rights of the people. Understanding this is fundamental to understanding the Constitution. The Preamble makes this clear.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Every United States citizen takes his/her rights with her/him as they travel from one state to another in the United States. When this doesn't happen, we have chaos and terror. Remember the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850? Remember prior to June 26, 2015, when the states could decide on whether or not to recognize same-sex marriage? Remember when women couldn't vote? Remember segregation?

Any politician who tells you that any citizen's rights are determined by any individual state as opposed to protected by our Constitution has no business running for office - it is the ultimate act of cowardice in the United States.

Duffer Don

Apparently we have a leader who believes in a 40 hour work week - maybe - maybe less.

Duffer Don likes to play golf and take weekends off. He is running up the security tab by spending weekends in Florida and requiring the Secret Service to stake out his digs in New York City. In fact, the cost of his security for one month may just exceed what it cost to cover President Obama for one whole year.

I'm not sure what we did to deserve this. However, I do not think we would have someone like the Duffer in office if we better understood our Constitution.

Last night I caught part of a show on public television. The show was "Questioning The Constitution". If you get a chance, you should watch it. It was very well presented and very informative.

We have clearly lost our way. Wandering in the wilderness is not a solution to anything. Our country is divided and this is certainly not the first time, I'm just afraid it might be the last.

Diaper Don - Out With It - Off With Their Heads

Don Donald is looking for leaks and he wants blood. Who is doing all this leaking? Why do they want to destroy the Don?
Stop! Take a deep breath. Exhale.

Okay, lets see if we can learn anything about leaks from our not too distant past. Does anybody remember Valerie Plame, the spy who was outed to the national press, the spy who was married to former diplomat Joseph Wilson? No? Hmmm.

President George W. Bush wanted to invade Iraq. In an effort to sell this bogus invasion to the American people certain untruths were told. Certainly untruths were told. Actually, no truths were told.

Anyway, Saddam Hussein was accused of stockpiling weapons of mass destruction and working on a nuclear weapon program in particular. Rumor had it that Saddam was hungry for yellowcake - that's uranium dummy - everybody knows Saddam was partial to cannoli. Niger had a lot of yellowcake and Saddam was accused of buying larges quantities of yellowcake from Niger - probably over the internet and using PayPal.

So, Joseph Wilson was sent there and asked to write a report. He did. He stated very clearly that Saddam had no appetite for yellowcake. He wrote an op-ed that was published in the New York Times - yeah the same NYT that sends the Don up the wall. The op-ed was entitled, "Bullshit, This is all Bullshit, There Ain't No Truth To None of This Bullshit".

Well, as you can imagine, W was angry. W was beside himself. W and company were exposed. They were caught telling fairytales and using pixie dust to start a bogus war with Iraq. Do you at least remember the war?

So, someone started calling reporters and telling them the truth - the truth being "Joseph Wilson was married to Valerie Plame and Valerie was a spy." Wow, using the truth to get revenge on the guy who exposed you as a big fat liar! Yeah boy, revealing Valerie Plame's true identity and putting a lot of people in jeopardy to get back at her shameless, truth telling husband!

Well let's jump to the chase - Scooter Libby worked for Dick Cheney at the time. He went to jail for lying to investigators about who leaked what to whom, while his boss, Dickless, stood by and watched. Yep, old Scooter went down in flames.

Oh yeah, it turned out that Dickless was the leak. Yep, the VP was pissing on everyone and it was a big scandal.

So good luck finding your leak, Dimwit. Oh, and would somebody please change Donny's Depends, he's really starting to stink up the joint.


Holy Moly!

Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

I have never seen anything to rival the Dimwit's press conference today. The man simply went bonkers.

Before I was a prophet, I was a clinician. I worked in all kinds of psychiatric facilities and clinics. I admitted, treated and discharged people. For each person I worked with, I had to do a diagnosis and mental status. It was what I did, thousands and thousands of times over the course of decades.

I thought that was behind me, but today I found myself slipping back into that mode.

The press conference lasted 77 minutes. It did not have gorillas wearing tutus on roller skates. No, gorillas could not compete with what I saw. When the Dunce described his administration as a "fine-tuned machine", I immediately thought of a cuckoo clock - a cuckoo clock with a daily tweeting cuckoo boasting a Woody Woodpecker haircut.

As a I watched terms like: loosening of associations; flight of ideas; delusional; manic; grandiose; poor impulse control; impaired judgment; disorientation; low intelligence; narcissistic; dishonest; anti-social; poor interpersonal skills; poor communication; rambling; using neologisms (really, really bigly use of neologisms); dangerous to himself and others; bizarre appearance; euphoria; and tacky dresser came to mind.

Yes, the Delusional one is a "space shot". That would be my official diagnosis. He is out there orbiting somewhere between Mars and Jupiter. He dwells in the asteroid belt. Unfortunately for us, the U.S., he is also our president.

I'm guessing this had something to do with Robert Harward's turning down the National Security Advisor position today. You know, the job that became available when Dopey fired Mike Flynn. Speaking of Flynn, Dumbo said that Flynn was doing a really, really great job right up until the Dweeb fired him.

I guess that's a hard sell - T. "Do you want this job?" H. "What happened to the guy who had it before me?" T. "I fired him." H. "What did he do?" T. "He did a really, really great job." H. "As tempting as it sounds, I'm afraid I have to pass on it." T. "Why?" H. "Um, ah, I have some really pressing personal things that I must attend to." T. "Too bad. What do you have going on?" H. "I forgot to eat lunch." T. "Too bad it would have been a really great, really fabulous, really wonderful, really amazing job. Please excuse me, I have to go oil my machine." H. "Knock yourself out."

Drooling Donald is driven everywhere he goes by a team of psychiatric attendants dressed up as Secret Service agents. They use a specially equipped black limousine that's fully padded and stocked with a good supply of Risperidone Oral Solution.

Flattery Wlll Get You Everywhere - So Will Blackmail

It was very disconcerting watching Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, conducting a joint press conference with Dundering Don earlier today. Benny all but kissed Donny. His praise was so effusive - the bulls**t was piling up so fast and so high it forced people to stand on chairs.

Clearly the Prime Minister of Israel wants something very badly. He wants it so badly that he is willing to disgrace himself to attain it. What could that be?

Putin wants something too. Where Vlad uses blackmail and intimidation, Benny regurgitates platitudes and praises the naked emperor's transparent clothing. Clearly, there are many ways to skin a cat, or a guy wearing a cat on his head.

I think Vlad wants Europe destabilized and NATO neutralized. I think Benny wants us to start intervening militarily in the Middle East - we could take out Iran for starters.

International politics has always been fraught with duplicity and intrigue. What's new here is the relative ease, the shameless transparency that is being used by some foreign leaders.

Let's hope the impeachment comes sooner as opposed to later.

Huh?

Mike Flynn resigned. What does it all mean?

Why was Flynn allowed to resign instead of being fired? Why is the Russian government upset about this? What's with Kellyanne saying he had the complete support of Don Don before he resigned? What happened to Judge Crater?

Stop! Take a deep breath.

There was no way Donny Dimwit was going to fire Flynn. Flynn was in like Flynn. He had the goods on Dumbo and could blow the house (White) apart if he so chose. So here's how these things play out in D.C.

1. The president says he loves you and would never divorce you even though you've been sleeping around with Ivan (Vladimir). What this really means is that someone had to take the hit and you were elected. A deal (artful?) was cut. Rubles for your Mike Flynn on a suicide note.

2. Mike does the honorable (?) thing. He resigns. He claims it was just a senior moment. Anybody could forget talking about lifting sanctions with the Russian Ambassador when the whole world is talking about what the U.S. is going to do in response to confirming that Russia was actively interfering with our elections.

3. Flynn is out. Artful Don figures he's out of the fire and Mike is a hero.

There are a few loose ends that need to be dealt with. The deal may not be as artful as someone with a 6th grade mentality thought it was.

1. What if either a criminal or a congressional investigation goes forward despite the resignation? I know you have Sessions in hand and I know there is a Republican majority in both houses, but what if?

2. Did anyone expect the Russian leadership to publically complain about this? According to the AP, Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the foreign affairs committee at the upper chamber of the Russian parliament, said in a post on Facebook that firing a national security adviser for his contacts with Russia is "not just paranoia but something even worse." Worse?

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the Volga river. Catchy tune.

You Ain't Goin' Nowhere

Welcome to the dance. National Security Advisor Michael Flynn got caught with his hand in the cookie jar and his pants down around his ankles while holding a smoking gun and smiling for the cameras.

Flynn is at the middle of a shit storm - one of many we can expect as Trump and crew proceed to tear up the pea patch in Washington, D.C.

Amid all the flying turds we were treated to this weekend, two stand out. The first was Don Donald responding coyly on Air Force One when asked about it. The second was Stephen Miller preening with a plug in his butt while being interviewed on all the Sunday News shows.

Yes, Trump the mouth had hardly anything to say about Flynn illegally discussing lifting Obama's sanctions on Russia with the Russian Ambassador while Obama was still in office. Dopey Don hadn't heard anything about it.

Yes, Miller responded to all questions about this by saying, "Na na na, I ain't talking, but you can keep inviting me back to not talk more - pretty please okay, okay?"

The sanctions were imposed by President Obama in reaction to Russia's interference with our free elections. Russia wanted to help Trump get elected.

While Mike Pence is busy pouting about Flynn's lying to him and snubbing Flynn in a public handshake, Donald the Dunce sits in silence. While the rest of Washington is all beside itself, Putin's strumpet is putting around Mar-A-Lago mixing international politics with a thinly veiled promotion of his resort.

Don't expect Don Donald to have Flynn taken out anytime soon. I'm not sure Flynn would accept an ignoble dismissal from the Don. I'm not sure Flynn would perform as required by Omerta.

I am confident that soldier Flynn was doing his Don's bidding when he spoke to the Russian Ambassador. I am equally sure that our bird brained Don was confirming all this when he tweeted "I always knew he was very smart." in praise of Putin.

I ain't spectin to see Flynn shot out of the Don's butt anytime soon. Nope, I think Flynn will just continue to stay in the bowl, flush after flush, while the rest of D.C. runs around frantically with a plunger and a snake trying to get him to go down.




Holy Moly!

Wake Up America

When we were attacked on 9/11, partisanship went out the window for a short while. The politicians were caught off guard. They didn't know what to do so they got together and sung "God Bless America" on the Capital Steps. It was a good beginning. It showed unity.

A cynic could say they were a bunch of unprepared and clueless idiots who let the country slip farther and farther away as they pursued partisan objectives. The unimportance of their petty, political objectives became so apparent when images of the World Trade Center coming down and the Pentagon being breached and Flight 93 being crashed into the Pennsylvania countryside played over and over in our press in the days and months that followed.

On 9/11, we were all just "Americans". Countries all over the world said they were "Americans" too. Do you remember any of this? Has it faded into obscurity? Has the significance of it gotten lost in the last political campaign?

If you forgot you were an American first, and bought into the hateful agenda of those who preach "America First", shame on you. Our country is again under assault and we need to stand united.

We have always been able to rise to external threats and acquit ourselves honorably and valiantly. We won our independence. We produced "The Greatest Generation". We stood with and by our allies during two World Wars.

At home, we've had problems. We killed each other in a long, brutal Civil War and laid waste to our own communities. We have fought over civil rights, racial equality and war policy. Yet, we always managed to survive our differences, pull together and continue.

The current occupant of the White House is neither a Democrat nor a Republican. He ran as a Republican, but, truth be told, he hijacked the Republican Party nomination. Sadly the Republicans embraced him after the election. They are blinded by the idea of power. They are deluding themselves into believing they can control this president.

The president is attacking America on several fronts. He is denigrating the news media. He does not want us to believe what he is doing as reported daily in print, on TV and radio, and on the internet. He is denigrating our judiciary. He wants us to see the judiciary as obstructionists and usurpers. He is denigrating our legislature. He wants us to see them only as corrupt and incompetent.

At the Republican Convention Trump said, "I am your voice." In reference to our problems he said, "I alone can fix it. I will restore law and order."

Louis IV said, "I am the state." Hitler said, "The streets of our country are in turmoil. The universities are filled with students rebelling and rioting. Communists are seeking to destroy our country. Russia is threatening us with her might and the Republic is in danger. Yes, danger from within and from without. We need law and order. Yes, without law and order our nation cannot survive. Elect us and we shall restore law and order."

Simply replace Hitler's "Communists" with "Muslims" and his reference to "Russia" with "Syria and other Muslim nations" and you hear Trump.

If you listen to Bannon, Conway, Spicer and Miller repeatedly telling us that we must be loyal to Trump and follow him without question you are going down the path of madness and political suicide. The Administrative Branch of our government must be loyal to America and function according to our Constitution.

There is no place in America for a king or a dictator. Our press is vital to our liberty. Our judiciary protects us from those who would defy our Constitution. Our legislature represents us.

If you tear down our press, our judiciary and our Legislative Branch, what's left, Putin's Russia?

Stop Breathing - It's Your Only Hope

Don't confuse rationality with reality. People do not act in a rational, intelligent manner.

Life is so messy. Politics is a good indicator of how messy things really are.

Based on today's reading, I would say we have sunk below the surface in quicksand and are hopelessly lost. Our only hope is if we can hold our breaths long enough to travel down through the Earth's core and then up into China.

Do Unto Others - How To Get Us, The U.S., To Pay Attention

We would be in deep doo doo if people from other countries started responding to us, the U.S., based upon what Donald Trump says and does. If they understood what the U.S. is truly about it would be curtains for us.

When Calvin Coolidge was President, back in 1925, he told the Society Of American Newspaper Editors, "The chief business of the American people is business." We often see this written as, "The business of America is business."

I don't think there is much distinction between these two statements, but there are those who do and I don't want to be accused of reporting false news or alternative facts.

The point is, if people outside of us, the U.S., started doing what Donald Trump and Kellyanne Conway have been urging others to do to businesses and people they don't like, we would be in very bigly trouble. We would be across the pond without a paddle.

Yes, the surest way to cause us, the U.S., to change policy or treat people differently is to stop supporting our businesses.

Oh Lord, Deliver us, the U.S., from penury!

Without firing a shot, without engaging in trade wars, without demonstrating, without doing anything, the people of the world could take us, the U.S., down.

Donald Trump says, "America First". It's offensive. It's not being a good neighbor or a good global citizen. It's not Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist or even good Mouseketeer.

If people other than us, the U.S., started saying, "America Not At All", and following it up by not buying anything from us, the U.S., or visiting us, the U.S., things would change very fast. I mean like "yesterday" fast.

Remember the Montgomery Bus Boycott? Remember when we boycotted South Africa? Remember how fast things changed? Yup, if you hit us, the U.S., in our pocketbooks, we really do respond. We even have this saying, "the customer is always right".

Holy Moly!

Trump's Under-Reported/Unreported Massacres

There is some truth in Trump's claims that the press has failed to report on massacres. Here are a few of the press' most egregious oversights:

1. Trump's daily massacre of the truth. If the press adequately listed the number of lies told by Trump and his appointees each and every day, newspapers would have at least twice as many pages. If each lie on the list was elaborated on, a typical daily newspaper would weigh at least 400 pounds; a weekly would require a van to be transported. For radio and television coverage, the amount of daily broadcast time would consume the entire day, each and every day.

2. Trump's massacre of all that is decent. Trump has violated almost every taboo we have. He is the house guest that shits on the table during meals. He is the guy who shits where he eats and he eats everywhere. He loosed Stephen Bannon on Washington, DC and Kellyanne Conway on the media. This is like breeding cockroaches, rats and maggots in your house and hiring Typhoid Mary as a restaurant hostess.

3. Trump's massacre of the Constitution. Trump has laid waste to the separation of powers, the judicial branch, the freedom of the press, the emoluments clause, equal protection under the law, the separation of church and state, freedom of religion, and civil rights in general. He is the guy who yells fire in a crowded theater.

4. Trump has massacred fashion, grooming, the English language, and the general rules of decorum. The hair, the tie and the hat are just a few of the many bigly things he's done to humiliate us. His daily tweets are beyond scandalous.

5. Trump has massacred our relationships with our allies. He is a veritable wrecking ball in international policy and negotiations.

6. Trump has massacred the safeguards that were put in place after the 2008 economic meltdown that almost destroyed the world's economies.

7. Trump has massacred the security of our homeland. His immigration/Muslim ban is being used as a jihadi recruitment tool. His ill planned and failed raid in Yemen has interfered with the United States' ability to take further action in Yemen.

Trump is the perfect storm of corruption, degeneracy and incompetence. He hit this country like a simultaneous tsunami, hurricane and flood. He is a backed up sewer system and a contaminated water supply. He is a national outbreak of salmonella and the plague.

Trump has gone beyond Sherman in his infamous March to the Sea. From California to the New York Island, from the Redwood Forest, to the Gulf stream waters, Trump has had it in for you and me.

Holy Moly!

Pigs Do Fly

I thought I'd seen just about everything in American politics, but I was wrong. I was soooooo wrong.

Bill O'Reilly interviewed Donald Trump and it aired right before the Super Bowl. Bill and Don wanted to glom onto the Super Bowl's ratings and steal some of it's thunder. They did. They really, really did. It was bigly. It was really, really bigly.

Don Donald told Bill that he "respected" Putin. When O'Reilly responded that Putin was a "killer", Donald dismissed the criticism and responded, "A lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers - what, you think our country’s so innocent?" Trump reminded O'Reilly about Iraq.

Yes, Don Donald argued that there was basically no difference between a totalitarian, Communist Russian state and the United States. I'll let that speak for itself. Everybody can draw their own conclusions.

What I want to focus on is the Republican Party. The undisputed head of the Republican Party, the Republican in Chief, the face of the Republican Party just showed the world how really bigly a tent the Republican Party has. The Republican Party not only has room for Putin and Russia, it also sees no difference between Putin and Russia and the United States.

I don't begin to comprehend all the implications of this. Does Don Donald plan to order hits on political opponents, reporters and dissenters? Does he plan to stay in power as long as he wants to? Is he going to start being photographed without his shirt? Is there deeper meaning to the Don's red cap and giant red tie? Are the red states really "Red" states?

Once again the press got it all wrong. The Republican Party has always accused the Democrats of being soft on Communism. The Republican Party has staked it's claim as the patriotic party.

Hell, in his inaugural address Trump said, "... we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people." There it was. All power to the proletariat! Our Constitution is being pushed aside by Marxist doctrine.

So Don Donald, a man of many hats, is also Comrade Don along with Comrade Pence and Comrade Ryan and Comrade McConnell and all the rest of those pesky red Republicans.

The Republican Party (wink, wink) is the Communist Party and pigs are a flyin (oink, oink).

Holy Moly!

Trump Screams FU And The Body Count Keeps Going Up!

The war between Donald Trump and the press is getting very ugly. According to Sean Spicer, 451 reporters were burned to a crisp in a pre-dawn raid conducted by the Fahrenheit Unit (FU). The FU is Trump's personal shock and awe brigade, an elite unit headed up by Stephen Bannon and Stephen Miller. Kellyanne Conway is the FU's agent on the ground.

Kellyanne is a cyborg. She was manufactured at the Simian Simulations (SS) laboratory in 2013. The SS is a very secretive, privately funded laboratory and spa in Roswell, New Mexico. The SS was founded in 1984. It is a non-partisan, for profit, corporation with a global clientele and out of this world technological expertise.

A consortium of reporters founded the Laconic Press Association (LPA) in 2010. The reporters who were concerned about sagging ratings, and loss of market share - a direct result of corporate budget cuts in 2008 and President Obama's No Drama (ND) policy which began as soon as he took office in 2009. The cursed ND policy left little for reporters to cover other than boring facts.

Donald Trump went to an SS retreat to be retrofitted in 2011. He emerged from that obsessed with Barack Obama's citizenship and started the Birther Movement (BM). Donald's fixation on Obama's birth certificate lasted almost 9 years. During that time he crisscrossed the country spawning BMs in every state. Every American was subjected to a Trump BM.

The American public had no appetite for the type of informative and sophisticated reporting required to explain things like the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Hell, just writing or saying ACA was a mouthful. The ACA became Obamacare.

Obamacare was no competition for a story that questioned Obama's citizenship. Was Barack Hussein Obama really a Muslim agent; a front man for a Radical Islamic Terrorism movement; a communist, socialist, funded by George Soros, trained by Saul Alinsky, and inspired by Reverend Jeremiah White?

The LPA loved Donald Trump and made sure he was covered on a daily basis in every media outlet and news forum. They provided him with so much free publicity and Donald, their creation, won the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Trump the candidate was an LPA delight. Ratings went through the roof. Subscriptions increased. The citizenry was entertained. It was all just harmless, good natured fun.

Nobody thought Donald Trump could actually win the election. Trump was regarded as both a spice and a condiment for a dish that no one could actually ingest - a dish that amused everyone who watched it being prepared and cooked.

When the election was over, the entire world was speechless. Even Trump did not expect to win. He regarded the election as a business promotion - he expected to make a profit from it. Trump was in deep do-do. His act required a villain - a shill.

Trump is a carnival performer. He is the lion tamer in a cage with defanged, declawed, tranquilized, aging, big, fat, arthritic cats. After the election he was alone in the cage - there was no one left for him to tame.

Trump had no choice but to turn on his maker, the LPA. It was an enlightened move. The LPA is his final, true opposition. It can't go away, because it must continue to chronicle Donald's antics, which include screaming FU whenever he puts his foot in his mouth, which he does throughout the day and in the early morning hours on Twitter.

When Trump screams FU, Kellyanne the cyborg is dispatched. The SS programmed Kellyanne to start speaking nonstop until any and all LPA opponents are laying on the floor bleeding from their ears. She eats up air time. She has inoculated herself in advance from any accountability by saying she uses alternative facts.

The other day, Conway the cyborg was dispatched once again to neutralize the members of the LPA. She offered up the Bowling Green Massacre (BGM) to justify Trump's Muslim ban. The BGM is an alternative fact. It's convenient - it's akin to Trump having a BM.

You've got to hand it to the SS. Their clients include everybody and everybody thinks they are the SS's only client. Among the SS's better known clients are the RNC, Vladimir Putin, most of the members of the House and Senate, the Supreme Court and every hedge fund manager and evangelist on the planet.

House Of Trump - You've Got To Listen In Tongues To Understand What Donald's Minions Are Saying

You have to know how to listen in order to understand what Trump's minions are saying. They speak in "tongues". They use doublespeak.

Here are 2 recent examples:

1. In an interview with FOX News, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said, "The wall will be built where it's needed first, and then it will be filled in. That's the way I look at it. I really hope to have it done within the next two years."

2. In an interview with Judy Woodruff on PBS News Hour, Vice President Mike Pence said, "I’m very comfortable with the fact that there’s only one person in charge of the Trump administration. It’s President Donald Trump."

Here's what they actually meant:

1. We are not going to build a wall. We may put up a few feet here and there, but, believe me, we are not gonna build that wall. Listen carefully to what I say. I said, I "hope" to have it done in two years. When Dummy Don hears that he thinks I said, "The wall will be built within two years." That's not what I said. Dummy Don isn't a reader. He doesn't know how to parse a sentence. He's not big on comprehension. He won't be President two years from now. The guy's tripping over his own feet and screwing up royally. He'll either resign or be impeached.

2. Hey, don't blame me for anything. It's all Don Donald. Don Donald is the only one responsible for what is going on. He's the one at the helm. He's issuing executive orders and conducting diplomacy on Twitter. The guy's a lunatic and we just try to stay out of his way. He's dangerous. Didn't you see what he did to Sally Yates? She was really stuck between a rock and a hard place. She couldn't dodge and confound him like the rest of us have been doing. She had to personally sign onto his Muslim Ban. She couldn't do it. It's unconstitutional! It's illegal! I mean look at poor Press Secretary Sean Spicer. He's been ordered not to say the word "ban". He's coming undone and Don Donald already had him worried about being fired because of the way he dressed. Hey, when Don Donald resigns or gets himself impeached, I will be the next President. I can't get my hands dirty. I speak in very measured tones. I don't use words carelessly. Don Donald is the "one at the helm". Don Donald is flying solo. He's gonna crash and burn.

I hope this makes everything clear. When the Spirit visits you, as I have been visited, you learn to "listen in tongues". I'm listening in tongues carefully to everything that's being said. Trump's minions know he's going down and want distance and plausible deniability. Hell, they probably have an impeachment pool going at the White House.

Holy Moly!

Hold Neil Gorsuch's Feet To The Fire - A One Question Hypocrisy Test

Merrick Garland was nominated to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Antonin Scalia. After President Obama nominated him, the Republican Senate refused to schedule a hearing on the matter for almost a year. They said they would not consider anyone appointed by Obama. They said they would wait for the next President to be elected to office before taking any action.

The Republicans blocked Obama's Supreme Court nomination contrary to the United States Constitution. They refused to fulfill their responsibilities as United States Senators.

Now we have a new President and he has nominated Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacancy. The Senate must now act to either confirm or deny that nomination. It is their Constitutional duty.

The Democrats are threatening to do the same thing the Republicans did. They shouldn't. They should hold the confirmation hearings. During the hearings all of the Democratic Senators should each ask Gorsuch one particular question in addition to whatever other questions they deem fit. Here's the question:

"Were the Republican Senators following the Constitution and fulfilling their responsibilities as United Sates Senators when they refused to take any action whatsoever in regard to President Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland?"

If Gorsuch says yes, that alone should justify a vote for disqualifying him. If Gorsuch says no, then they should pursue that line of questioning and make him explain it all in great detail.

Call your Senators and urge them to ask this question during the confirmation hearings. Urge them to hold the confirmation hearings as well.

Holy Moly!
