FOR FUCK’S SAKE – Mon 4/30/18 aka Day 465 of the Hostage Situation

dixon-234684-e-wp-content-uploads-2017-11-Trump-Mueller-cartoon-Signe

Damn, I had to find my Dramamine just to get through the last few days. Dizzying with nauseous undertones making the truth of reality and the reality of truth hard to discern much less separate into a rational flow-chart.

Which brings us to the start of a new week and another Cabinet member (Gen John Kelly) has referred to Trump as an “Idiot.” Mmhh. I think maybe he referred to him as a “fucking” idiot but that shoe hasn’t dropped, yet, in this story. Donnie is an idiot. He knows it. I know it. You know it. My big toe knows it. The Trump Base will never know it but we can’t save the whole Country all in one day.

Of course, late Trump Tweet (7 PM – oh, we’re in trouble! Something got under his skin) states that the WH is running smoothly, without chaos, fake news, blah, blah, blah…

NEXT!

Everyone’s A-Twitter about the NRA convention and Mike Pence. The story goes no guns will be allowed inside the event due to security concerns for illegitimate-VP. I get that pushback on the irony but I didn’t think you could ever come fully armed to these events in the past. I mean wouldn’t the location be paramount to the guns laws afforded the venue? Insurance would be unbelievable, I would think.

My head hurts.

Let’s see…

Trump has taken credit for North and South Koreas talks. Kim Jung-un “has really been very open and I think very honorable based on what we are seeing,” Trump glowingly reports. Now Donnie wants to meet the North Korean dictator at the DMZ (reality TV backstory). Logistically it is challenged but the risk is what true Patriots do for America’s success, therefore, I encourage the DMZ idea.

HOT OUT OF TRUMP WORLD: 49 questions that Mueller and the Trump defense team came up with for DJT to answer about Russia, Comey, etc. have been released by NYT. What a brilliant strategy on Mueller’s part. Float the questions out there in the Twitter-verse to linger and fester in the liddle Trump brain which will explode in various stages of delusional confusion. After the BS has settled the truth will again be glaringly obvious.

Damn, the process of uncovering the truth is becoming oh so tiresome.

NEWEST TWEET FROM TWAT-LAND: Iran has a robust clandestine nuclear weapons program that America now knows all about said a statement released by the White House. Wait, but, no…sorry World…what the WH really meant was Iran “had” a robust clandestine nuclear weapons program. Wow, deja vu of earlier Bolton days, been there, done that and got the t-shirt. FML. Silly us! These fucking idiots are going to get us all killed.

French President Macron bought with him an oak tree to plant at the White House to show the United States and the World the strong bond the 2 countries have with one another since WW I. The tree planting ceremony was covered by MSM, photo ops, and the whole 10 yards. As of yesterday, the tree is missing with just a patch of yellowed grass to give lip-service to its, albeit, short-lived existence on the White House lawn. Word on the street is the tree is in quarantine, as all foreign imported plants must be, to counter any possible negative influence or parasites it might have that could affect our eco-system (yes the eco-system that Trump, Pruitt & Associates don’t give a damn about). In the olden days of President Obama (or before) the press corp would have had this information early and it would have referenced the released story by the media. In this day and time, it simply amplifies the inability of the Trump Administration to even get the smallest tasks/gestures done correctly by implementing the necessary protocol required. If they aren’t smart enough to know the procedures required to bring in an oak tree from France that needs to be planted do you really think they have a grasp of the special needs and concerns of China, Syria or say Venezuela?

Last night I watched a Committee hearing on CSPAN chaired by Graham and Leahy regarding the SCROTUS 2019 budget proposal for USAID. The underfunding requested by the Administration to support the direction of USAID was discussed by the bipartisan members and the conclusion was the slashing of the USAID budget was “insulting” and would not be accepted. More money would be going in that direction. Of special concern was the programs that supported women’s health and family planning options. The Director, Green and another gift from the great state of Wisconsin, was good at talking out of both sides of his mouth stating his job was not to analyze the reasoning or rationale behind the cuts but was to make the funds that were available to him go as far as they possibly could. The overall solution seemed to be to toss the reigns to these countries striving for democracy (or on the brink of developing one) much earlier than would be successfully possible therefore sounding as though the Administration is promoting democratic values while relieving themselves of the burden of the actual monetary or physical/mental effort necessary to back up-and-coming democracies that would lead to success.

And a final little diddy to close this Cookie-ized version of current events. The National Enquirer, yes you read that correctly, has released a story stating that Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, is involved in some “shady” business practices and seems to begin to distance Donnie from Cohen in what can be construed as an attempt to relieve Trump of any guilt-by-association regarding his lawyer. Typical Trump reaction. Cut and run. The National Enquirer has long been a media vehicle defending and promoting Trump since he hit the political scene a few years back. It could also signal the tabloid trying to cover its butt as well since it has been instrumental in what could be seen as campaigning for a Presidential win by Trump (while not publicly claiming their services as a campaign contribution). They are scurrying like mice, or at least thinking about it. We’ll see who’s still standing in a couple days. As usual, it will be interesting.

(ICYMI: Michelle Wolf was a comedienne at the White House Correspondents Dinner (which Trump has, of course, declared dead because of his take on it’s disastrous showing this past Saturday night). I didn’t see it and have read very little, so far, about the actual jokes, etc., but apparently, more than a few of the “roast” jokes were directed toward Sarah Huckabee Sanders and were rather brutal in attacking the “truth” as she and the Trump Administration have decided to define the truth. I guess it hurt Sarah’s feelings or made her uncomfortable (What part of the truth hurt you, SHS?). The RWNJ & GOP are calling for heads to roll. Even some moderate and left-leaning journalist (and some are women) think the jokes went too far with some reading into the jokes a reference to her looks, which as far as I can tell were not alluded to. Still, this has gotten insane. It is a roast. A roast. It’s supposed to be rather prickly and jabbing. Yes, a few of the clips I have seen were border-line close to being mean-leaning. But, when you measure it as overall tit-for-tat, I don’t think enduring the lies, bullshit and alternative facts this Administration shoves down our throats on a daily basis have any defense against the truth we no longer receive in good faith from the American “leaders.” Calling out liars is not a pretty nor always easy task. But to do nothing or say nothing about lies and distortions is a much more uncomfortable political existence to live within. Start telling the truth and the possibility of brutal push-back and questioning will cease to exist. And finally, comedy is an art and just like any form of artistic expression is subject to objective interpretation. Not all will appreciate it. If it didn’t cause discussion and controversy it wouldn’t be very good art.

Next!

For Fuck’s Sake Thurs 4/26/2018 aka Day 461 of the Hostage Situation

Well…

dw6tzxzumaas6ww.jpg

This morning Trump decided to start his day by appearing on FauxNews. Oh, glory-be. Fox is his mini-fix when he doesn’t have a rally to stroke his ego. He’s freaking unhinged. Now he claims Comey said he didn’t stay overnight in Moscow for (say it all together) The Miss Universe Pageant, further stating of course he stayed over night. Wtf? Two words: flip-flop. He also reiterated how his first year had more accomplishments and successes than any other President in the history of the United States. Boys and girls, this is why literacy and education are important for a healthy America.

Personally I think he has bigger issues to tend to…

Such as…

…his nominee for Secretary of the VA just took himself out of consideration. Ronny Jackson, aka the “Candy Man,” exited stage left and I see no stand-in waiting to take over.

French President Macron has returned to France after Trump’z “state dinner” which included one Democrat and no press. Melania flicked his hand away when he tried to grab hers. Good times.

Macron had parting words about the danger of promoted fake news with a parting picture of him hugging Rep John Lewis. 3-points!

Pruitt has to appear before Congress to answer more questions about his daily dumb attacks. He was pictured in Indiana concerned about nasty public water seemingly forgetful about the water in Flint MI. Or Puerto Rico. Maybe Congress has questions regarding the records from his shoe phone that he uses in the cone-of-silence installed in his office!

Kayne West and the unstable genius are now best friends forever.

The man who disarmed a killer in TN at a waffle house has been insulted by the NRA and ignored by DJT. James Shaw Jr also started a gofundme account for the victims families raising 150,000. And just reported a fundraiser has been started for Shaw. Personally I think the fact Donnie hasn’t weighed in is a blessing. This way he can’t insult Shaw, which we all know, would happen.

Sen Mitch O’Connell appeared on FOX to piss and moan about the Dems obstructing the nominee process for cabinet nominees. Still with their majority. Still Hillary and Obama’s fault. Someone needs to tell ol Mitchy that Trump is fumbling the ball at the one-yard-line every time. You can’t fucking obstruct what doesn’t exist. Jeez.

Trump thinks North Korea has agreed to “denucleari

FOR FUCK’S SAKE Mon 4/22/2018–Day 458 of The Hostage Situation

1 year, 93 days, 12 hours, 9 minutes and 50 seconds until it’s over

andern20180310_low.jpg

 


Let’s see..the so-called-ruler-of-the-United-States (SCROTUS) has been a busy little bee.


Today we’re talking about his nomination for Secretary of the Veteran’s Administration. Imagine him getting push-back on nominating his own personal physician for the position. Compound that with the fact we have breaking news that Ronny Jackson might have created a drunken hostile work environment while pushing pills out of the White House pharmacy. The stall seems to be a bipartisan showdown so, we’ll see if it last. 


Over at the CIA there’s trouble concerning the nomination of a new Director (since Pompeo is gracing the Secretary of State position with his presence. We think). There appears to be some concern America could be sending the wrong message by appointing a woman who was directly implicated in the humiliation and, some say torture, of prisoners of war. Gee, you think? God, help us. 


Two “adult” entertainers are in various stages of taking SCROTUS to court for sex-related acts deemed inappropriate – they both have 2 names.


Trump claims he couldn’t have been compromised by Russian hookers because he didn’t stay overnight in Russia but we have flight records and interviews by the man himself which totally blows that alibi out of the water. He did stay in Moscow overnight. All in the day of the life….


Mueller is still going on with his investigation while PutinsMiniMe continues to call it a witch hunt. The GOP is doing nothing to save Mueller or Rosenstein from Trump’s temper tantrums and still has no spine nor moral compass. The Country is waiting for Michael Cohen’s next move therein Trump’s next meltdown. Good times.


DJT is still supposed to meet with North Korean dictator about nuclear situation. Trump is clueless he is, once again, being played like a fine-tuned piano. He can’t make a deal to save his life and inevitably gives away the baby with the bathwater each time, offering to gift-wrap the whole deal to boot. He will negotiate America away in no time if left to his own.


French President Macron is in town to talk about the Iran Nuclear Agreement. The Idiot will probably fixate on the damn French military parade again having no attention span left over for actual policy discussions. I mean, it’s only nuclear weapons with Iran, it’s not like it’s North Korea or Russia.The King wants to hold court but the subjects don’t exist. Sorry, Donald.


As if on cue the Universe and World seem to know the United States is no longer holding the bar high in regard to respect of human rights, tolerance or moral authority, There seem to be no acts that are responded to involving an American conscience. Today 10 people were mowed down by a white van in Toronto, Canada, leaving 15 more that were injured. The 2nd worst act of killing that has ever happened in Canada. Yesterday 4 people were killed in Tennessee by a 29-year-old American in a Waffle House around 3 in the morning. An assault rifle was used. Again. The discussion about the tragedy and senselessness of the act has barely been given a nod in the news. #ThisIsNotNormal


Jack Johnson is being considered for a potential pardon after Sylvester Stallone contacted Trump about the boxer.


I think this is enough crazy for today.

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.
