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’s Making us Insane Over Putin

Why did someone greenlight a banned Russian spy, allowing him to enter the US?(*Quora Question)

I am going to assume you are referring to the meetings held last week between some of Trump’s cabinet secretaries/appointees & 3 Russian operatives who are connected to Russian intelligence. One person is the head of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), Sergey Naryshkin. He was banned from entering the US when sanctions were placed on Russia due to their invasion of Ukraine back in 2014 when Obama was in the White House. Naryshkin was placed on the “Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons” list that is overseen by the Treasury Department.

The problem is no one is forthcoming with the name of who allowed Naryshkin to enter the US. It is a mystery (as of 12:06 AM 1/31/18). The other problem is that Trump, or his admin, didn’t announce they were going to or had met with Russians. The Russian sanctioned news source Tass reported the meetings and the US found out from Russia in a tweet which included some of Trump’s activities. A final problem is that the SVR has been specifically named as being directly involved with the 2016 hacking of the Presidential election in the US. Even Pompeo, a Trump appointee, has said he believes Russia will meddle in the 2018 elections. Yet a man who works for the agency whose hands are dirty from the 2016 election hacking was allowed back in the country mere months before the mid-terms & it was hidden, unsuccessfully, from the citizens of America.

The Secretary of State can clear someone on the Blocked list to enter this country on a case-by-case basis. So, did Tillerson allow Naryshkin in for the “secret meeting?” They won’t comment.

Did Trump think we wouldn’t hear about the visit by the Russians, therefore, didn’t think it was a big deal to just bring him on over and into the country? We don’t know. The word on the street they talk between the US & Russia was addressing terrorism at FIFA and also at the upcoming Olympics. Fair enough and sounds normal sounding and reasonable. Unfortunately,, normal, reasonable and Trump administration are not synonymous.

But why all the secrecy? The meetings with the Russians took place a week before Trump declared that he didn’t think additional measures via sanctions were necessary and decided to postpone additional sanctions that were to be placed on Russia/Russians. Further watering down the effectiveness of the bipartisan-backed sanctions was the Trump administration copying the names of rich Russians out of Forbes Magazine while the intent of the sanction’s Kremlin List was to get the names of people closely related to Putin and the Kremlin, not necessarily the rich or richest in Russia. This lame attempt at a Kremlin List further undermines the effectiveness of future sanctions and will probably include names of families that had nothing to do with the events in 2015–16.

Final thought is how the meetings were conducted. It is speculated that the Russians met with Pompeo and Coats, along with other unknown American politicos. When asked about the nature or reality of the visit by the Russians the CIA released a statement saying that while it does not discuss the schedules of U.S. intelligence leaders, “rest assured that any interaction with foreign intelligence agencies would have been conducted in accordance with U.S. law and in consultation with appropriate departments and agencies.” While in normal times this answer might actually give Americans some peace of mind with Trump it just allows more speculation about recent protocol with Russian meetings. Trump has notoriously slighted the norms of meeting with hostile foreign nations by not having the meeting correctly recorded or having a witness in the room while the meeting was being held. When Trump insists on side-stepping the protocols put in place for tried-and-true reasons he is guaranteeing he said/she said political dialogue where we may never know exactly what was or wasn’t discussed. He could be talking about absolutely anything, including personal business promotion, and no one will ever be the wiser. He is purposely excluding a valuable check and balance that has been put in place to assure not only the US administration is on the up and up but also that the foreign participants are not enticing diplomats to forego their allegiance to the political process of America’s democracy.

Trump is not known for his honesty, trustworthiness, good judgment or putting Americas needs in front of his own self-serving needs. He, of all people, need to let the voters know what direction our government is thinking of taking and why. Trump works for the citizens of the United States of America and he does not seem to realize we are his boss, not the other way around.

#Resist the Insanity

I had to stop trying to write to keep up with DJT’s insane trip through his so-called leadership attempt via the *MAGA* American “Pilfer & Carnage Tour,” 2017. I just couldn’t do it anymore. Trying to sort through his biggest gaffes, embarrassments and pure un-American rhetoric, not to mention the bold faced lies, had fried my brain.

My brain also hurt from the fact that we are still dealing with that Moron-in-Chief. I mean, really GOP? The inaction by the Republicans in order to preserve power over party OR Country still astounds me to insanity. I cannot even look at McConnell, Ryan or Sessions without my blood boiling, simmering with a hate. Yes, I hate them. They have sold out America, in its entirety, by pursuing RWNJ agendas while this Nation is literally melting into unrecognizable chaos.

Then I am perpetually pissed at SCROTUS supporters who pardon that misogynistic, racist, white supremacist, ignorant, insufferable, stupid, lying, narcissistic POS’s actions, words, and motives. Jesus Christ, enough already. The same people who are still pointing fingers at Bill when Hillary is running for President claiming lack or morality on Clinton’s part are the same Idiots that now turn the other cheek to indiscretions and sexist comments that might make Clinton (well, maybe Chelsea) blush.

The press, while doing a job that has kept me diversely informed of this 3 ring circus aka the Trumple Administration, I still blame a bit for this debacle we find ourselves in. When AgentOrange first tripped & fell onto this scene in 2015 the media was all over him with free coverage. The more insane he became the more insane the media became. Some outlets would obsessively cover him, I am thinking, in hopes that the American voters would see he was a whack-a-do and opt out of that vote, Thank-you very much. But in fact that coverage became, as we all knew by the numbers, a platform that was working in favor of Moron’s polling numbers yet the coverage continued & with a light touch as to not rustle the feathers of the thin-skinned man-child.

Add, Facebook & Twitter with the now admittedly fake news stories purposely placed to sway those mainstay people who really knew so little about life, and even less about politics. Easy marks who wanted an easy life without having to “think” about it too, too much. They don’t mind working hard, but they don’t want to think. That they needed to investigate if those stories were really false or not is laughable. If anyone really believes half of that propaganda garbage, must less all of it I am thinking mental faculties should be examined by a healthcare worker (that is if we still have healthcare when you read this).

And now mid-October 2017 not unexpectedly for the DNC and all points left of insanity, Trump is trying to lead America into fucked up places we don’t really need nor have to go. Nukes and name calling with North Korea; threats and disgust directed toward our beloved Constitutional Amendments; American citizens dying without so much as a mention from the man who claims such bigly intelligence – not a mention of California and the victims of the wildfires, Puerto Rico 3 weeks after a hurricane still struggling just to find food & water or 4 Green Berets who lost their life’s in Niger serving this Country; demolishing the EPA, ACA & every department that should act independently of Presidential considerations or monetary motives; with reckless abandon he’s disassembling anything created by, for, around or because of President Obama and to hell as to it’s positive v negative analysis of effectiveness; and of course the Russia/Trump love affair that began decades ago and is now the “other woman” to patriotic Americans who don’t want Russian involvement in our damn business especially our political business.

(No, I didn’t forget about Iran, China, the fucking Wall, DACA, LGBT & gender rights, the Women’s issues, emoluments, The hypocritical Freedom Caucus, nepotism, the KKK, his swamp, the GOP, his healthcare, his tax reform or budget – there just isn’t enough time left in my life to explode over it all at one time.)

So for now I am going to try and find my groove to rebutt the daily deluge of His Moron-in-Chief, try not to keep up in actual real-time for everything he utters or does and keep hoping the damn GOP will finally, albeit too late to do themselves any good when it comes to governing – but we already knew that was going to happen – call out that Orange blob squatting in the Oval Office out & kick him to the damn curb and I don’t care if it’s impeachment or the 25th Amendment, I ‘m flexible.

All of us left-leaners and anti-Trumpeters will keep doing what we do and flood America with the realities and atrocities this man is trying to create or has already created and try to pressure others to take notice and help us bring him down once and for all.

We have a job to do my friends. We have gotten a lot accomplished but we still have a long way to go. We got this. Remember who we are and what we stand for. Let’s make her proud. Resist.

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.
