Trump and the Russia Affair….the big nothingburger!

Commentary & Opinion by Monomakh —

Isn’t it amazing that the Congress of Ryan and McConnell can’t do ANYTHING?  These incompetents haven’t passed one significant peace of legislation since day One.  I don’t know about you but I’m really starting to wonder just what in the hell we are paying them for.  In fact, I’m starting to think maybe we shouldn’t even have a Congress at all.  I mean, why bother since they don’t do anything but sit and collect fat paychecks anyway.

Oh but wait…they’ve busied themselves with chasing PHANTOMS!  You know….as in….GHOSTS!  Yes that’s right! Our present GOP controlled Congress is chasing the phantom known as the “Russian Affair” which they’ve been chasing after since the very day Trump took office back in February and thus far they’ve found a great big NOTHING!  And chances are they will find NOTHING either.

The Senate Intelligence Committee and Special Investigator Mueller chasing after this big nothingburger is a complete WASTE of taxpayer money!  But I’m not surprised at all as the present Congress seems to do nothing better.  Instead of doing something to benefit the nation and our people this Congress is BENT on the big nothingburger.  And for some odd reason we are supposed to think they are actually doing something LMAO.  Hell they can’t even repeal and replace Obamacare for God’s sake!  And Trump has called upon them to repeal Obamacare and replace it later but they can’t even do that!

And the saga continues………….

Heads rolled this past week at CNN over FAKE NEWS involving President Trump and the Russia scandal. Seems it’s all fake news (propaganda) designed to unseat the POTUS conjured up by CNN. Since then CNN and the president have been battling on Twitter including the president releasing a video in which he is seen beating up an individual with the CNN logo covering his face.

Additionally, a CNN producer was filmed commenting that American voters are as “stupid as shit” and that ignited yet another firestorm. Also, the Trump administration has requested voter names and info from various states claiming they want to expose voter fraud in the last election. Trump maintains he won not only the electoral college vote but also the popular vote. However, statistics say Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 3 million votes. Continue reading

Senate Healthcare Bill Ready to Persecute the Poor!!

The US Senate has been secretly working on a bill to “reform” Obamacare and the reason it’s been all so secret is because these 100 lobbyists that work for corporate America and NOT the American people know that what is in their bill, if revealed to soon, would PISS OFF Americans especially the elderly and the poor!

Rumor has it that the Senate bill guts the expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare meaning that millions of poor and working poor will soon have NO health insurance which will put us back to square 1 prior to the enactment of Obamacare! Of course there is also the House version of the bill which also includes an AGE TAX meaning that if you are over 50 years old or have a pre-existing condition the Health Insurance CRIMINAL Companies can charge you up to 5 times higher premiums!

BOTH bills are an absolute FARCE! Both bills are geared towards once again placing the burden and YOKE on the neck of the poor! But I expect nothing less from the Republicans who have a history of being for big business and NOT for the American people. Trump is CLEARLY a Corporatist even moreso that Obama was. He keeps saying the healthcare bill is going to be “really good.” I suppose if you are one of the shareholders in a healthcare insurance company or drug company then YES it is going to be a really good deal for YOU. But, if you happen to be among the MAJORITY of Americans who are poor or the working poor then either bill is going to be a disaster for YOU.

Obviously, both the Senate and House bills are designed to eliminate health insurance for the working poor and to suck as much money out of the rest of us as possible to satisfy the GREEDY insurance companies and the GREEDY politicians like Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell. American down on Main Street need to awaken to the now CLEAR FACT that our government does NOT work for We The People but for Wall Street exclusively! Every so often they throw us a crumb just to keep us from rising up. Continue reading

When does the Trump Melodrama end?

He has now been in the oval office for almost 5 months and during the course of those 5 months Donald Trump has basically not done a lot.  His agenda that he preached as a candidate is largely stalled in a Republican controlled Congress that doesn’t support his agenda.  Of course, to be fair, I must point out that since Trump took office the stock market has been up and the unemployment rate has gone down and these two things ARE significant for the economy.  But, mostly what we’ve gotten from Trump over the past 5 months is much more melodrama more than anything else and, frankly, it’s getting a little old.

His rants on Twitter are unwise to say the least and last week he said that what he says on Twitter ARE official statements from the POTUS.  I can see Twitter as being part of the new world order of doing things where a president communicates directly with the people and, thus, bypasses the MSM (which is likely a good idea since they are blatantly anti-Trump) but he needs to be a bit more careful what he says on Twitter as there are ramifications.   Continue reading

Investigative Report I: Government Accountability Tucson, Arizona

Tucson, Arizona

Over the course of the next few (or more) weeks I’m going to be looking into government accountability and corruption from an investigative journalist point of view.  These posts will appear under their own headline “Investigative Report” beginning with this post here.  Before I begin, however, let’s lay out of few facts.  🙂

Corruption in government today is at an all time high.  This corruption exists from the lowest levels (city) to the highest levels (federal).  Somehow we have become a nation in which our so called “public servants” mistakenly believe themselves to be aristocrats rather than “public servants” and they waste no time at all spending PUBLIC monies on THEIR little pet projects, most of which are designed to honor their own egos and have little to nothing to do with serving the general public!  Oh yes, in today’s GREEDY American society it’s all about stroking our own egos.

When the founders of this nation originated the Constitution and Bill of Rights the intention was that common folk would serve in government and then return to their private lives but this, in recent years, has not been the case at all.  Instead what we have today are politicians (public servants) who have made their public service into a career! This is why we have people in the United States Senate, for example, serving for 40 years or more!  Well, public service was never intended to be a career and this is why TERM LIMITS at ALL LEVELS of government are so important and need to be enacted across the board from the lowest to the highest levels of government.  So called “Career Politicians” have a tendency to become “too comfortable” and they also have a tendency to become CORRUPT.  They start out serving the people but they end up serving special interests and somewhere along the line you will usually find a money trail (read BRIBERY)!

McCain Says Leadership Better Under Obama

You might recall Arizona CAREER Senator John McCain at last weeks Senate hearing when former FBI director Comey appeared like the great White Knight in shining armor.  McCain was obviously lost throughout Comey’s testimony and, in fact, it appeared McCain didn’t even know why Comey was there.  He kept referring to the Clinton email scandal which is a separate investigation from Trump’s possible ties with Russia but McCain seemed not to know the difference.  Comey was actually there to testify in the possible Trump-Russia Affair and NOT the Clinton email scandal.  In a futile effort to save face as rumors began to swirl that McCain might have dementia, the Senator offered up the excuse that he’d stayed up late the night before watching the Diamondbacks game.

As if this fiasco wasn’t enough the Arizona Senator told The Guardian yesterday that he thinks leadership was better under Obama than it is under Trump.   Ironically, McCain lost the presidential election to Obama in 2008 and back then he had plenty to say about Obama’s poor leadership but now it appears he’s had a change of mind.  Of course, this is not surprising as McCain is well known for jumping ship and going the other way.  In fact, most people know beyond any doubt that McCain is a RINO (Republican In Name Only) and has been for decades now.

It used to be that after a presidential election the government and the nation got behind the new POTUS in a show of solidarity and support, “one nation united.”  However, in today’s world the United States is anything BUT united. In fact, the USA is now very divided and we can thank Barack Hussein Obama for most of that.  Obama never missed one opportunity to drive the wedge deeper in this nation’s divisions!  Hailed as the “Great Uniter” Obama actually turned out to be one of the most divisive presidents in American history if not THE most divisive.

What Game is Comey Playing?

I’ve been watching now former FBI director Comey ever since the Clinton email scandal began and I see some things I want to point out about him.  First he announced that the FBI had conducted an investigation into Clinton’s emails and found nothing illegal.  And then his next move was to announce that Clinton was still being investigated and new emails had been found just days before the presidential election.  When he made this announcement the opposition LOUDLY accused him of attempting to influence the presidential election and, frankly, I believe they were absolutely RIGHT!  That’ is EXACTLY what Comey was trying to do and he did it!

I’ve seen plenty of self righteous people like Comey.  You know the type.  No matter what they do they think they do nothing wrong.  Prior to his testimony last week before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey told reporters that he had agreed to testify for the good of America, so the public would know.  Know what?  And I’m still wondering this after his testimony btw.
