Republicans/Conservatives and their phony family and religious “values”
Time for what some will consider inappropriate and politcally incorrect.
Here’s my take on all this – Trump is systematically attacking and alienating this countries allies and trading partners which kind of raises the question is he really that damn stupid or does his constant sucking up to Russia speak to another agenda?
I as an individual encourage those nations threatened by Trump’s “tariff” and completely unjustified accusations to stand strong and give a tit for tat.
I do so fully understanding it could lead to a national tightening of the belt, but also say this nation would benefit in the end and that is of the greater importance.
VOTE during the mid terms.
This country cannot win a trade war regardless of how many lies Trump spews – couple such a war with the “tax reform” that was an early xmas present to the wealthy and there will be trouble aplenty …… maybe even enough to awaken the brain dead who hang on every word Trump speaks as though its holy writ.
In the interim watch out for the “deep state” the “gang of thirteen Democrats” and anyone with something more than a sixth grade education that even faintly resembles having a little common sense.
It’s like DeNiro said: “It’s no longer down with Trump it’s F*** Trump”
Too funny and had me rolling on the floor.
Automated empathy coming from the President of the United States and NRA minions like Marco Rubio who in a townhall meeting yesterday ran through his own personal list of “I hear you” and then boldly stated his lack of support for not banning assault rifles while proclaiming he will continue to accept money from the NRA.
Trump so detached, so addle brained clutched a list of what to ask and say during his meeting with survivors and parents of victims of the Parkland shooting that included the words “I hear you”.
In essence the message is that government is totalitarian in nature believing it has the singular right to tell people what to do rather than being representative – a right predicated entirely on contributions from entities like the NRA.
Liar Liar Pants On Fire
Trump’s got the goods on all of his accusers and a day of reckoning is coming – well not really that’s just more bs doled out for his defenders to come down out of the trees and applaud.
I wonder if they’ve forgotten Trump’s bluster following former FBI Director James Comey’s revelation that during a private meeting authored by Trump he expressed the opinion that he believed Comey ought to just let the whole thing about Michael Flynn slide?
Trump went to great lengths to claim it was all fake news, Comey had lied, and suggest in a menacing sort of way that Comey better hope there weren’t any “tapes” of their conversation.
Well, Flynn’s gone down in flames, rolled over, and still no tapes.
Which kinda begs the question if they existed why didn’t Trump hand them over?
Obvious answer is either they don’t exist or they support Comey’s version of the conversation.
Now it’s about Rachel Crooks, one of roughly twenty women who have accused “locker room” man of sexual misconduct accompanied by the usual Trump “exaggerations” and lies that he hasn’t a clue who this woman is and never even met her …….. anybody recall having heard that before?
His supporters shouldn’t panic though, Trump once again wants them to know he has proof in the form of video evidence and it’s nothing more than “fake news”.
But that’s where it begins to get a little convoluted as is the norm in the dystopian world according to Trump – Rachel Crooks says if that’s true then release the video and so far Trump hasn’t.
Could it be they don’t exist or if they do they fail to demonstrate that “nobody respects women” more than he does?
I”m thinking maybe Trump should head to rehab, bunk in with Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, participate in some of that counseling and those group therapy sessions.
But then I’m also thinking a little rehab wouldn’t be a bad idea for his supporters as well.
There’s something else I’d like to draw attention to, and that is:
Trump is caught in a trap of his own design gnawing at his NRA donations friendly leg like some feral animal, coiffed his hair with super glue to hold it in place and said he’s signed a “Memo” directing USAG Sessions aka the Keebler Elf to see about the ATF banning bump stocks.
Problem is the ATF doesn’t have the Constitutional authority to do so, something Sessions must know and in knowing trickled that reality down or up to Trump .
What is required is legislation, and that’s a real threat to conservative pols who never saw an NRA dollar they wouldn’t bend over for.
Such legislation would put them squarely in opposition to the NRA, their names would be on the Bill with the NRA and members of the hive raining fire and brimstone on them, not to mention those stipends being withheld.
Not likely to happen so something is needed to toss against the Trump/Conservative wall of shame in the hope it will stick – ergo, a meaningless “memo” , a “memo” mind you, not even one of those “executive orders” Trump loves to sign with a flourish and beaming smile.
Trump and the rest of his gang have their fingers on the panic button as midterm elections draw ever nearer following the election of Linda Belcher to the state House of Representatives in Kentucky – if anyone’s counting Reps have won only five such elections since Trump has taken the “oath” he swore to himself to violate and the Dems have won thirty seven.
A panic that extends to the “tax reform” and some way to make up the shortfall which Trump has suggested could be a twenty five cents a gallon tax increase on fuel or a “mileage tax” for drivers.
Think about that – will a fuel and or mileage tax impact the everyday person or Trump’s buds? Should one even be necessary due to the giveaway to one percenters?
Yeah, “winning”, ain’t it great?
Sean Hannity of Fox Fake News has said on at least one occasion that he isn’t actually a journalist but more or talk show host, one of the few times he’s actually spoken something credible and I personally am willing to give credit where credit is due.
A “talk show” host along the lines of Morton Downey jr and Jerry Springer – but Hannity one ups both Downey and Springer to take credit for being a bot as well as a propagandist.
Perhaps the administrations chief propagandist – and that’s saying something when you consider the competition like Huckabee Sanders and the “reverend” Franklin Graham as he performs his daily ritual of Trump absolution … “ we have all sinned” – yup, problem is some just make a career of it.
It’s a sad commentary how “talk show hosts”, preachers, and a segment of society turn themselves into human pretzels to avoid obvious truths – a case in point is the manner in which some are attempting to portray Dear Leaders reception at the Davos conference in Switzerland.
To hear them tell it the Swiss reacted as if it was the second coming, what they failed to mention were the boos – but as difficult a path as it must have been Trump did a decent job of sticking to the prescribed script his minions had prepared for him.
Trump is demonstrably ignorant but among his staffers and advisors the light is coming on as mid term elections loom on the horizon that the message of hate and mysogyny needs to be toned down a little.
To that end Trump is making an attempt to get all warm and fuzzy about DACA – next thing he’ll be claiming those Mexican “rapists” he went on about love him and he “probably” has as good a relationship with them as he alluded he “probably” does with his separated at birth counterpart Kim Jong Un.
Mexico is going to pay for the wall – right, that’s why Trump and congress, small c as it’s populated by small people, persist in trying to get tax payers to foot the bill.
I’ve given up trying to understand the mentality of Trump bots and supporters who never heard a lie they didn’t like and if there aren’t enough emanating from the White House not adverse to making up a few of their own, for some it’s actually become a career choice.
Idoicracy, as in the movie of the same name, has become a reality, but you know what’s really interesting is that Fox funded the movie, then when seeing the results did what they always do – sought to distance themselves from a timely social commentary.
