He’s only been in the Crap House for 9 months but it seems like he’s been there for at least 4 years already. Yes, I’m talking about our esteemed President Donald J. Trump and I don’t know about you but to me and many others he’s already a full-fledged nightmare that everyone is wishing would just go away. Trump and his administration are a bit like living in the “Twilight Zone.” For starters it should now be clear to everyone that Trump has problems working with people. In fact, it appears he can’t work with people because he seems to have an attitude of “my way or no way.” That attitude might work in the greed ridden halls of business but it doesn’t work when you are the leader of a country or in any other high political office. Politics is an art and, specifically, it is an art of COMPROMISE. The Democrats showed during 8 years of the Obama regime that they didn’t understand that little basic reality of politics and now the Republicans are showing that they don’t get it either! And as for Trump? The man doesn’t even know the meaning of the world “compromise” I assure you.
Trump is now going to bed with the Democrats because he can’t get anything done with his own party, the GOP, and that would be because of his attitude of “my way or no way.” Like I said, Trump has problems working with other people. Right off the bat he offended the GOP leadership in both the Senate and House to the point that all they wanted was to do anything and everything they could to screw him over and they’ve done just that for the past 9 months. That’s why Trump’s agenda has gone nowhere! So now he’s hopped in bed with the Democrats to get Obamacare axed and he’s going after GOP congressmen and senators who don’t support the latest version of “repeal and replace.” Case in point….Trump is now going after Rand Paul for not supporting the latest version to screw the working poor out of affordable healthcare.
No one should be surprised by Trump’s actions (or lack thereof) over the past 9 months because he’s simply doing what he’s done for decades in the business world. That is….Screwing people over! That’s the way he’s gotten to where he is via his real estate business and investments, screwing people over, and he’s made a lot of enemies along the way who have not forgotten how they were screwed by him. Trump is just continuing his typical M. O. A number of his FORMER supporters, I saw a few days ago, burned their “MAGA” hats in a bonfire already because they are so frustrated and disappointed with him. LOL guess they now realize just how Trump played them like a fiddle for the naive people they are. But, again, get used to it because that is what Trump has done in the business world for decades now and in the near future he will continue to screw over his supporters IF and when he deems it to HIS advantage. This man, this president, has no loyalty to anyone but himself, period! Continue reading →
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 →
Now that I have some time (finally) I want to expand my assessment and commentary centering around President Trump’s abrupt firing yesterday of FBI Director James Comey and a few other little items about Trump that are really beginning to bother me 🙂
Let me start with this…yesterday when Trump issued his letter informing Comey he was fired Comey was in LA delivering a speech to some of his agents. From what I hear initially Comey say the bi-line on a new channel playing on a TV in the room and took it as a joke. To his surprise it was not a joke and it was confirmed to him that Trump had indeed fired him. Comey, I assume, was devastated and had to even ask permission to fly back to DC on the FBI jet he flew to LA on! Frankly, I think this was a pretty shitty way of firing Comey. Trump should have showed some professionalism instead of acting out of emotion as most teens do and waited until Comey got back to DC and summoned him to the White House for a face to face meeting and, thus, inform him that he was terminated. But, as has now become clear after 4 months of his presidency as exhibited by his obsessive presence on Twitter, Trump doesn’t do things the professional way. Instead it now appears to me that Trump acts out of emotion, off the cuff, and that is a very bad thing for a POTUS to conduct business. That tactic might have worked for him in the real estate business but it likely doesn’t work in government. I’m absolutely certain we have not heard the last of Comey yet.
Of course the “excuse” is connected to Comey’s testimony before Congress last week in which he “allegedly” lied about the Clinton emails and the allegation that Comey, according today to the White House, threw a “stick of dynamite” into the Justice Department during a press conference he used to clear Hillary Rodham Clinton. Further, a WH spokesman alleged that Comey had committed “atrocities” as the Trump Administration stepped up the war of words against the now ex-FBI chief. Just what “atrocities” were they??? It’s easy to make allegations but you’d better have some damned good proof! Additionally, at a meeting today between Trump and Henry Kissinger the President said Comey was not doing a good job “very simply.” That aside I can’t help but wonder just why Trump is meeting with that old warmonger Neocon Henry Kissinger to begin with! It appears to me that Trump is now showing his true colors as the Corporatist Neocon he is and has always been! YES America you were FOOLED again and played like IDIOTS again in the last election!!

Since this past November some of the liberal left have succumbed to what appears to be nervous breakdowns. Basically, they’ve suffered from disbelief mixed with rage mixed with depression and hysteria. This, of course, is all a dangerous mixture and now there is a name for it. It’s being called “Trump Derangement Syndrome” or simply TDS.
We’ve seen many displays of this mental phenomena with the latest appearing yesterday on CNN (aka: Communist News Network). Their reporter/commentator Fareed Zakaria appeared on Don Lemon’s show and in speaking about President Trump Zakaria had a complete meltdown right in front of the cameras. And his meltdown was laced with a liberal usage of profanity as well. Host Don Lemon was speechless at Zakaria’s display as once again the world witnessed TDS in action. You’ll find the broadcast at the link below.
TDS is caused by the loss of Hillary Clinton in the last presidential election and the triumph of Donald Trump. The Leftists were so sure that Clinton would win the election that long before results were even announced they were proclaiming her the winner. But she didn’t get enough electoral votes and suddenly their certainty was dashed against the wall ruthlessly leading to numerous mental breakdowns by her supporters.
Surely, the Leftists thought, Clinton would succeed the well known Leftist Communist Barack Obama and certainly Clinton would finish the Communist takeover of America transforming it once and for all and redistributing that wealth that Commissar Obama often spoke of. But that didn’t happen and the meltdowns began.
So here we are in mid-March and the meltdowns continue as it seems apparent now that TDS is indeed an epidemic. Suddenly, the so beloved Communist Utopia is but a fantasy and the hard reality of American democracy has set in once again. For at least the past 50 plus years the Communist TRAITORS in our midst have carefully engineered their takeover of America and with the election of Obama two times they became very confident that their takeover was within reach. Then came Trump and suddenly all their plans were thrown into disarray.And so TDS began and became epidemic.
TDS is actually a REALITY CHECK as the past election proved once again the MAJORITY OF AMERICANS do NOT want Communism nor Leftism! It showed once again that the MAJORITY OF AMERICANS like our republic and democratic system and our CONSTITUTION just fine! And it shows that the MAJORITY of Americans do not anything to do with the Leftist Communist “utopia.” And THAT is what the Leftist just can’t handle as visions of sugar plums dance through their heads endlessly.
TDS can be a debilitating mental illness and there is no cure for it outside of abandoning ones Communist desires. The mental breakdowns and rage associated with this MENTAL ILLNESS is often accompanied by violent behavior so be warned. The more I see from the Left the more I believe Michael Savage’s assertion that “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.” Indeed for the Leftist it seems to be so.
He’s NOT your average POTUS! He’s not politically correct in the least! He’s used to getting his way or no way! He’s not about to kiss ANYONE’S ass….no not in the slightest! He’s using Twitter as his Homeland Secretary to manage the masses! And he seems to like to set things up for a SHOWDOWN!! Oh the DRAMA! Oh the SUSPENSE! Oh…..oh my!!
Of course I’m talking about President Donald Trump and right now it appears to me that he’s got a 3-way SHOWDOWN going on. First up is the now infamous border wall which has pissed some people off so bad they’re about to bust out of their shorts. I foresee mass demonstrations once construction actually starts along with sabotage, sit ins, and protesters chaining themselves to the wall as it’s being constructed.
Second up is that touchy issue of the immigration ban. He pissed a lot of people off all over the planet with that little Imperial Edict didn’t he? Why if I didn’t know better I’d say Trump fancies himself as some sort of resurrected Roman CAESAR. Ruler of the Known World! Trumpius the Mighty! Hail Caesar!! Well a federal judge in Seattle appointed by Bush as stopped that order in its tracks but Caesar assures us he will appeal the decision and his ban will proceed forward. Of course there have already been protests galore around the world over this little move and I’m sure they will continue along with law suits and even MORE federal judges issuing injunctions and rulings on the ban. I mean after all we all know that if you look long enough you can find a federal judge that will rule in your favor in just about ANYTHING, right? Oh and that little matter of terrorists trying to enter the US from Syria, Libya, Somalia, or Iran? Ha! Who in the hell really cares about national security anywho, no? Continue reading →
A lot of hype and misinformation surrounded the past presidential election not to mention a good dose of “fake news.” All of this “fake news” is really nothing new as it used to be called “Propaganda.” Now that Donald Trump has been elected POTUS many Americans are trying to sort through the propaganda in an effort to find truth and one of the things some people are trying to figure out is if America is now a fascist state.
Fascism is a broad term and many people don’t even know what it means. So what is “fascism”? When we think of fascism we typically think of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis which was one sort of fascism but the fascism exposed by Italian dictator Mussolini was another sort of fascism and the fascism exposed by Spain’s dictator Francisco Franco was yet another sort of fascism. Here are some core tenets of fascism but keep in mind that not all fascists or fascist regimes embrace all of these tenets.
Nationalism is s big thing when it comes to fascism and what we are seeing now in America is the rise of “populism” which can be taken as a form of nationalism but this is only one tenet of fascism and it does not mean America is now a fascist state. Further, simply taking pride in one’s own country and/or ethnicity or culture can also be considered a form of nationalism but that doesn’t mean you are a fascist. Totalitarianism (dictatorship) is another tenet and fascists regimes who embrace this tenet most often have dictators such as German, Italy, Spain, and Argentina’s Juan Peron during WW2. The US does not have such a dictatorship. Our Constitution is still in tact even though it’s been badly battered for the past 8 years under the Communist Barack Obama (and yes I consider Obama to have been a Communist). Our democratic institutions remain in tact as well and the powers of the presidency remain limited so America does not have a totalitarian regime.
Anti-democratic ideology and a one party system are two more tenets of fascism that fascists may or may not embrace. Like I said, our democratic institutions remain in tact and America doesn’t have a one party system so, again, America has not embraced these two tenets of fascism. Another tenet of fascism is what is known as a “personality cult.” That is, the nation rallies around some prominent public figure usually the leader. Germany rallied around Hitler. Italy rallied around Mussolini. Spain around Franco and Argentina around Peron. Hitler ha a personality cult going on as did the others but to a lesser extend I think. In America it is rather difficult to rally around some public figure including the president. Yes, Trump supporters tend to rally around him and likely see him as a “savior” of our nation and that would be a sort of “personality cult” but many Americans do not feel this way about him. However, he does have a bit of a personality cult going on but nowhere near that seen with Hitler, Franco, or the others during WW2. Continue reading →
