All Points Left of Insanity

We Resist, We Persist and We'll Prevail


Trump is Head-Over-Insane for Putin

I hope SCROTUS (So-called Ruler of the United States) is brushing up on his Russian and going to the Mall for his new “Sunday-go-to-meeting” clothes because his honey is coming to visit.

Seriously though, Putin is meeting with Trump. Who, in any world or Universe, would think this scenario has a snowball’s chance in hell of ending in any manner but not good?

Putin has been SCROTUS secret (maybe not so much) crush for awhile. We really don’t know how long because Donnie claims the two have barely exchanged words while the many press accounts document endless comments, meeting & business dealings between the Orange Trumpkin and Russia/Putin. Putin, for the most part, has remained demure and rather quiet about the whole “affair.”

The intertwining of the relationship between the two is so vague, yet so publicly alluded to, that there has been commissions & councils created to try and find out the real scoop about their relationship. The councils are still council-ling and the commissions are still commissioning, verdict and fate still undetermined.

Another question is how is the Orange RWNJ (RightWingNutJob) going to handle access for the press, especially with a leader so revered by SCROTUS and so notoriously despised by not only the Republican party but, the country as a whole? Is he going to appease the naysayers and prove beyond all doubt there is no collusion of any kind? Or will he simply add fuel to the fire and hold most of the “intimate” meetings behind closed doors and away from America’s ears?

But, an almost bigger unknown is what is going to happen when they finally meet, again, face-to-face *blush*?

We all remember the success and public love the Idiot received on his last (1st) foreign visit (Donnie doesn’t like to sleep in strange beds, has some germ aversion and just generally is a bitch to travel with) to the ME (yes both of them) & Brussels. Good times. SCROTUS sure showed us what “presidential” meant, to an orange, delusional Martian maybe. He elbowed a man, insulted a woman, kissed Saudi Arabian ass (almost literally), rode in a golf cart instead of walking and pissed off every world leader he could remember the name of, and some he couldn’t pronounce. It sucked.

So now comes Round 2. Fuckery. All Vlad has to say is something along the lines of, “I admire you bigly brain contained in your good-haired Orange head,” and Trump will be a puddle of love and adoration ripe for the picking.

Goodbye, resolve. Goodbye, common sense. Goodbye State secrets. Goodbye nuclear codes. Goodbye strategic military planning. Goodbye America.

There is no way Trump will be able to resist those puppy-dog eyes, lingering looks, and a hand-shake that last just a sec too long. You know what I mean? Trump is in lust. This will not end well.

Any chance that America’s concerns about what we have been hearing from SCROTUS himself with the backing of a deluge of press releases (a lot from the Trump Corp itself) will be assuaged and laid to rest are nil to none.

Trump won’t take the advice from seasoned Repubs and try and at least appear to be removed from the TrumpRussia suspicions. If anything, after he quits melting and composes his hair, he will begin to blither all over himself in a “bigly manner, the likes of which have never been seen before.”

Vlad will see him for the idiot and fool which he is, and reports out of Russia will confirm this. SCROTUS will see it as a “very productive and satisfying meeting of which he can’t comment on further as it would compromise National Security (I won’t even touch the “satisfying” part).”

Funny thing is, we’ll have no more National Security after that meeting because our American souls will have been sold to the Russian Satan.

Trump is clueless to how viciously precise the former KGB leader of Russia is when “negotiating.”  The Orange embarrassment doesn’t realize he’s just a tool. He’s just a means to an end for Vlad who relishes nothing more than the day he can compromise the US in such a way that we may never fully recover.

Putin has finally found, in Donald Trump, the weakest link possible to begin to dismantle our Democratic Republic and he’s going for it and Trump will never know what hit him.

Sad.

The Insane Take-Over of the White House Daily Press Briefing (DPB)

Since his tiny hands first opened up the door to the Oval Office #SCROTUS has quite regularly tweeted out veiled threats to either limit or stop the White House daily press briefings. His excuses range from the “fake news,” “fake media,” or the latest reasoning which alluded to the need to possibly hand out responses to maintain accuracy in information flowing out of his insane asylum of a White House.

Maintaining accuracy seems like a bit of a far-fetched excuse for a man who does not appear to care nor try to adhere to anything that resembles truthful continuity to any given situation occurring in real-time on planet earth.’

Another recent explanation has been that the White House is looking to replace the quite colorful yet tight-lipped Communication Director/Press Secretary Sean Spicer due to the recent departure of Mike Dubke who departed stating personal reasons. It has been mentioned that Spicer will move up and replace the duties that Dubke had formerly been in charge of.

I guess like all things Trumptarian only time will tell if this is another pouty moment because everyone is being mean to the Orange Delusion or if he is going to continue to try to dilute another backbone of America’s Democratic Republic.


The Insanity of the GOP, Women & the AHCA

Well after more than 7 years of moaning and pissing the GOP, as well as their morose leader, are attempting, for the second time, to push the AHCA (American Healthcare Act) through Congress to repeal and replace President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA). Their purported intent is to cut what they feel are unnecessary and frivolous services currently mandated to Americans under Obamacare while restating some conditions the GOP felt were too liberal to be applied as “essential” women’s health care options. 

The position of women in American social programs, including health care cost, is under assault by the Right-Wing-Nut-Jobs (RWNJ) of the GOP. Lead by the erratic, So-called Ruler of the United States (SCROTUS aka Donald Trump) it appears the direction and the ultimate fate of women in the 21st century is to be regulated back to the dark ages when women were not only viewed as second-class citizens but, were also seen as the gender who, in and of themselves, had no social value to the Christian-based extremism that has once again unpacked their bags on Capital Hill. 

The American woman has fought long and hard since the early 1900’s to change the patriarchal guidelines that had become the expected “gold standard” for acceptable behavior of women, sisters, wives, and daughters in America.  Women made strides in that century which catapulted them from character actors on the sidelines to starring actors with equal billing to their co-stars (men).

Before the creation of the ACA under President Obama women were still subjected to health care options and alternatives that left a lot to be desired. It seemed women always paid higher premiums because our health care directives were decided behind closed doors by a room full of men who only gave lip-service to women’s health care to appease the societal pressure they felt exploded from the bowels of the “pesky” woman’s liberation movement of the 1960’s.

With this new-found voice woman in America through protest, voice, votes and Supreme Court decisions carved out a unique position in America’s health care doctrine to support their well-being and safety. Reproductive rights, health care, pregnancy and mental health issues became a woman’s decision based on their individual needs unique to the place and time they found themselves in life. Women’s rights to quality health care were no longer a one size fits all solution, lacking individuality or wiggle room for the ever-changing role women held in society. 

Come to find out that under all that pomp and circumstance there still lives the white, entitled, sexist American male that truly believes that women are of no value, really, only put on earth to please men. The kicker is they cite the Bible as to why women are not equals. No, not all men feel this way. Probably the majority of men don’t feel that way and view women as equals. But the few assholes who do visualize a women’s existence beholden to them, unfortunately, are wearing their big boy britches and have decided females can’t play with their toys in their sandbox any longer. 

The insults that are publicly being bantered right in front of the American woman, as if they are invisible and incapable of their own personal health care decisions, has been beyond unacceptable on many levels. The extreme right, under a GOP leader who claimed to “grab a woman by the pussy because he was rich,” proceeds forward with gloves off, cherry picking disastrous offerings to women, content in knowing that public opinion has reached a fervor as to not even miss a beat when misogynistic sexism becomes the mainstream mindset towards women’s health care choices. 

The sexist, all-white, Right-wing-nut GOP, who cloak themselves in the guise of evangelistic saviors while bearing witness to God’s true beliefs and desires are meeting behind closed doors once again.  As usual, it is a bunch of old cronies who for some reason believe their religious principles and doctrine are the one and only bar of measurement as to what services women should have available to them, especially in family planning and health care. 

The women of today have come full circle and now find themselves just about where they started, with laws & attitudes that belittle and diminish their existence. This feeling of going backward is felt all the more deeply because they have tasted the life full of rights allowing control over who they are, what they are and where they want to go in life.

Now SCROTUS, who himself possesses no moral compass, and who has flip-flopped from the stance of a woman’s right to choose to thoughts that women should have some kind of consequence for having an abortion, has decided to swing to the far right to join the rest of the GOP’s guise of religious principle and conviction. SCROTUS has even gone as far as to sign an EO (Executive Order) supporting the rights for businesses to decline to offer birth control. Citing religious beliefs & doctrine, the good ol’ boys have decided that birth control should not be offered to the female worker if the owner of said business has “moral” objections to the concept and intent of birth control. Not just religious objection but merely moral objections as well. 

Nothing is ever enough for those zealots who seem to think they are unduly put upon to exist in a world with a government that would allow any type of funding towards birth control and/or the Constitutionally determined right to an abortion. These people aren’t content to be exempt from providing family planning/health care services to women in their employment because of the employer’s religious beliefs. No, these diehards feel that to offer birth control of any kind, even by employers who have no moral or religious reservations per se, is a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). Somehow it has come down that for women to be offered birth control, by itself, promotes an ideology that the GOP feels causes irrevocable harm to the conscience of everyone umbrellaed under the health care system. 

The exemption provided in the ACA was originally geared toward non-profits with religious objections to be exempt from providing any form of birth control for their female employee. That did not mean the women did not receive the essential mandated benefit that was offered under ObamaCare. (The employer had to submit paperwork stating that due to religious beliefs that birth control would not be offered in the employer’s heath care packages. But the employers countered saying that they still felt they were directly involved with providing birth control simply because they had to fill out the paperwork submitted to the government. This went to the Supreme Court who remanded it back down to the lower court for decision – a decision that has yet to be rendered.) No, it simply meant the federal government circumvented the employer and paid for the reproductive health care services directly, with the money coming from a federal fund that was paid directly to the provider of such services. This kept the Christian RWNJ’s hands clean from the dirty deed of participating in family planning in a direct manner. Now their objection, simply put, wants to eliminate the United States federal government from offering birth control as a mandate within the AHCA stating that by offering birth control the act itself imposes such a substantial burden that it affects their religious freedoms

Wonderful, so a white, middle-class, Republican zealot who sees any and all opportunities to control the “barefoot & pregnant” ideology to which he clings to with drooling contentment of a hypocrite gets to decide, in essence, not only the sex life, or lack thereof, of his female employees, but actually has his beliefs and religion decide the family planning options of all women with whom he employs. 

The American working women is in essence once again being forced to sleep with their bosses. The GOP of 2017 just turned the clock back for women’s rights and control over their bodies. Women are getting fucked and they don’t have any birth control!

 

(Disclaimer: This article did not address the other egregious decisions by the GOP to take away essential benefits such as screening & preventive health care options that maintain a women’s health nor did it address the unfair description of pre-existing conditions that could increase health care cost while decreasing health care mandates, especially for women, in regards to breast cancer, pregnancy, maternity & newborn care.)
