The Conspiracy Of A Paranoid President 

Are you not entertained? Because I sure am enjoying this comedy reality show that has been going on or as I like to call it.. Season 2 of The Donald Trump show. Season One was all about the campaign and this new season, to boost ratings, is all about conspiracy theories and paranoia. 

   It is sad that our Government is now being compared to a reality show but when you have an orange haired nut job running the place …. I have no words but here’s what’s happened so far with updates. 

1. Trump made serious allegations about President Obama wiretapping him without a shred of evidence to back it up and then ordering an investigation into said allegations. Fair enough however, the investigation,as expected,proved false as nothing was found and that’s after being confirmed by the FBI Director, Obama’s Security Intelligence Director, DOJ, to name a few. That would close it and end right there… Unfortunately, Trump,never one to take no for an answer, refuses to believe that and claims that he has evidence that he says 

We have important, important stuff that we will reveal that will prove Obama is guilty.

   Great..How would you have that when no one else does? Well, according to dimwit Kelly Ann Conway

He’s the President and his privy to many things no one else has.

 Well, fine then why waste time with an investigation if you have your own proof. If you have it release it. Or does no one want to write it up?

  And he went one step further by saying that the British colluded with Obama to do that and then insulting Germany about it.. Great. Piss off 2 of our allies to convince the world how correct you are only you’re not ..

   These are serious allegations that aren’t true if only because 

No President has the authority to order any types of wiretapping whatsoever.. Only a Federal judge can but only in extreme circumstances.

It really is sad that Trump does not know the laws and feels like he can get away with anything because he’s the President which brings me to.

2. Russia and that explains the tweets that Trump is sending out because he’s trying to deflect away from that and if the Press is talking about anything other than Russia,then he can continue his business dealings with them and if you think he’s distance himself for it then you are only kidding yourself.

3. There is no question that he’s still involved in his business dealings .He just can’t or won’t and the whole press thing he did with his tax lawyer was just for show..  After all,there’s a reason why his cabinet members are all wealthy Wall Street types with no experience in politics.. Also, his tax breaks and cuts are there to benefit him and his rich buddies. 

4.You have to love the press for questioning Sean Spicer on a daily basis regarding the wiretapping and him shutting them down by bullying them because that’s what he is a bully… A patsy… Like everyone else in the administration, he’s been trained really well to be brainwashed into believing Trump’s lies 

5. Clearly the ban has been proven unconstitutional and as such unable to take effect however, Trump being Trump doesn’t agree and has filed an appeal to overturn it. But if it didn’t work the first time,what makes him think the second time will? And they will need to prove to the judge why it’s needed and possibly show proof none of which they have and I’d like to see them explain how it’s within the law when others say that it is not.

    Seriously, how much more of this nonsense must we endure before impeachment hearings begin? 

This is someone who never ceases to amaze..  He’s so convinced that the wall is needed that he’s willing to cut from every agency to get that funding.. Forget the fact that the majority of Americans are against this wall (Also, a wall already exists to which he seems clueless about), but he’s willing to put many people out of jobs to do so.

   His goal is to put the funding towards​ the military in order to protect us except the military has always been sufficiently funded…..

In short, since Mexico won’t pay and taxpayers refuse, he’s cutting to get the money and it’s only a matter of time before he blames someone for this.. Of course once the budget doesn’t pass… I think I need more popcorn..

   To summarize:

  1.  He insulted Germany,
  2.  Accused England of wiretapping collusion
  3.  Cutting every agency to fund his damn wall.
  4. Convinced that evidence for the wiretapping exists and will prove it (Good luck with that)

 Basically, if he benefits he will do it and that includes his Obama care repeal to which he decided that of Republicans don’t pass it, they won’t be elected…So now he’s making threat’s… The fact that almost everyone’s against it is irrelevant..
Anyway, with all that he’s doing he’s not Making America great again.No, if anything he’s alienating our allies, pitting us against each other, and showing us who he really is. The only question is when will the moral people in Government expose him and set in motion the wheels to remove him?

The Legitimacy Of The Trump Administration (Or Lack Of One)

    Donald J. Trump. A man who is not well. A man who has been given the keys to the office and the codes. A man who is delusional. A man who cannot tell the difference between reality and fantasy. A man who is dangerous .  A man who is trying to create a new world order through hate, fear mongering and propaganda.

Now I know that what I am saying will be denounced by every single Trump supporter out there and that’s the point you see because Trump supporters will always agree with him regardless of what he says because that is the very definition of brainwashing propaganda and if you aren’t with him then you are the enemy. Fair enough but the non ignorant people know the truth . They know how to separate the “Fake News” from the real news. They know how to separate the “Alternative Facts”  from the actual facts. And this writer will explain why I wrote the statements above because unlike the delusional nutjob that is running our country, (God Help Us), I backup my statements so without further aideu, may I present the following:

TRUMP CLAIMS THAT TRUMP TOWER WAS WIRETAPPED BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

Without providing one shred of evidence or proof, Trump decided to tweet this serious accusation . There’s only one problem:

NO PRESIDENT IS LEGALLY ALLOWED TO WIRETAP ANYONE AT ANYTIME WITHOUT A FEDERALLY MANDATED COURT ORDER.

 

In fact, this is what led to Nixon’s resignation (He was going to be impeached) and the laws being changed to prevent something like this ever happening again. The only time the Government would wiretap someone is under extreme circumstances and this is a rare thing .

So where did Trump get this idea from: Mark Levine  who declared that: Mark Levine says Obama Wiretapped Trump Tower. Then Breitbart picked it up and that’s where Trump decided it was okay to tweet but Breitbart was run by Steve Bannon who is Trump’s 2nd in command and who Trump takes advice from seriously and really we all know his views. You think Trump is nuts? Bannon is worse.

Here’s where it gets interesting: Trump has ordered(Or has  demanded is  more like it) that an immediate investigation get underway so that anyone involved can be “punished”. How they proceed is up to them but taxpayers money would of course be involved which begs one to ask : Why are we paying for something that does not exist? And, how do you investigate something where something doesn’t exist? FBI director Comey has already said NO and has asked the Justice Department to do the same .

Obama’s former intelligence director has already said that this could not happen because he would need to have been involved, which he was not.

TRUMP SAYS THE MEDIA IS FAKE NEWS

Meanwhile, back in the real world, the only fake news is the one being tweeted by Trump. Trump has started a media war with the press because he does not like them. Why? Because if they report things he does not like he’ll call it “Fake News” and then put out his version of what the truth is which is what we call “Alternative Facts”. And just so we are clear, the definition of Alternative Facts is defined as

The worst of the four classifications of lies: lies, damned lies, statistics, alternative facts. Alternative facts are distinguished from the other damnable lies by the addition of gaslighting the listener.

A good example of this:

After backing up her false statements with alternative facts, Kellyanne Conway threatened the “dishonest” media for suggesting that she might be lying.

 

So to be clear: We the media are the enemy because we are spewing lies, while Donald Trump is tweeting accusations which he believes with 100% certainty that what he tweets is the absolute truth. Isn’t this how propaganda works? Suppress the media so everyone has no choice but to believe you? Hmmm. This sounds oddly familiar Suppression of the Media in Nazi Germany . There was also this:

In 1929, Hitler chose Josef Goebbels as his Minister of Propaganda. Goebbels developed extremely successful campaigns using simple slogans and images repeated over and again in order to win public support for the party. The Nazis spent huge sums on newspapers, leaflets and poster campaigns.

So I guess the phrase: “Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it” is actually happening. Who’d have thought?

The thing that Trump does not understand is that Freedom of the Press is a powerful tool that was specifically created by Thomas Jefferson because he believed that:

A press that is free to investigate and criticize the government is absolutely essential in a nation that practices self-government and is therefore dependent on an educated and enlightened citizenry. On the other hand, newspapers too often take advantage of their freedom and publish lies and scurrilous gossip that could only deceive and mislead the people. Jefferson himself suffered greatly under the latter kind of press during his presidency. But he was a great believer in the ultimate triumph of truth in the free marketplace of ideas, and looked to that for his final vindication.

And:

“The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.” –Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1787. ME 6:57

To be President, one must know the laws of our country and be familiar with the Constitution which clearly Trump is not, which brings me to:

TRAVEL BAN

Here you have someone who decided, without consulting anyone, that all Muslims are “bad dudes” which is a pretty inaccurate statement . There’s a saying that “Every Muslim is a terrorist but not every terrorist is a Muslim”. True enough, recent events have proven this correct. But to single out one single religion (for lack of a better word) is illegal to the core no matter what you say. America is a Democracy and as such, we are all entitled to due process. If you are a criminal then you aren’t. That includes terrorists (or suspected) but to just tell every single Muslim that you are no longer welcome in this country? How does that make us look? What does that tell other countries?

People came here for a better life. For freedom. And yet, years later, the descendants of those are now bearing the brunt of this simply because they are muslim. To make it worse, Trump has now decided that children will be separated from their moms. While the moms will be sent back to which they came, the children will be sent to Foster care or “some other relative”.

Trump Supports can call this whatever they want but it is a Muslim Ban through and through and Trump is skirting the law here by doing this because again, the Constitution has “FREEDOM OF RELIGION” which allows one to practice their Religion out in the open whenever they feel the need to.

You say you want to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” but by signing executive orders that undermine that, you are being a hypocrite. Why? Because this travel ban is bad for everyone for many reasons but this one in particular is important

   In the wake of the travel ban, Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America great again” seems rather ironic. The failure to appreciate that immigrants are good for innovation, competitiveness and the nation’s future flies in the face of this aim.

 

And in a well written article by The Guardian, The Muslim Travel Ban , the writer states several excellent main points that one:

First – and this can’t be emphasized enough – Trump’s own people have found no rational security justification for this ban. A leaked Department of Homeland Security memo, prepared after the first travel ban, found that “country of citizenship is unlikely to be a reliable indicator of potential terrorist activity”.

Rachel Maddow obtained a March 1 Homeland Security reportwhich assessed that “most foreign-born US-based violent extremists [are] likely radicalized several years after their entry into the United States”. If the executive order is not rational, then maybe – just maybe – it’s bigoted?

And two:

Second, these Muslim bans are presented to us as if we’ve never heard Donald Trump, Steve Bannon or Stephen Miller speak. Probably the most disingenuous element of this administration is how it uses broadcast and social media to get its message across while disassociating itself from its own media presence.

And three:

Third, and most important, we must recognize how Trump’s Muslim ban is an extreme deviation from more than 50 years of US immigration policy. Prior to 1965, the US had favored northern Europeans in matters of immigration, but in the middle of the Civil Rights movement and the Cold War, that system was widely seen, here and abroad, as racist and antiquated.

 

The Immigration and Nationality act of 1965 signed by President Johnson at Liberty Island, stated that the law”

“corrects a cruel and enduring wrong in the conduct of the American Nation”

You can read it here: The Immigration and Nationality Act

Finally,

RUSSIA

This is the biggest thorn in Trump’s side. And, some critics have said that Trump’s making up news is to deflect on the media’s (as he called it) “witch hunt”. The only problem is that after an investigation it turned out that Russia was indeed involved in hacking and rigging of the election.

Not only that, but the Trump administration is corrupt with half of his cabinet somehow involved with Russians. Flynn already resigned. Sessions had to recuse himself (not to mention lying under oath). Tillerson has contacts there related to his days as Exxon CEO. Trump is pallsy wallsy with Putin . The list goes on and on and it’s only a matter of time before Snowden is handed over as a “gift” to Trump.

So everything that Trump is tweeting makes sense when you think about .Sure half of what he tweets has no basis in reality but whatever he does, says, or tweets plays exactly into the media’s hands and as long as it take the focus away from Russia he’s as happy as a clam.

By the way, he isn’t allowed to tweet on his personal twitter account and has been asked to stop but Trump is Trump and he does whatever he wants.

This man is not fit to be President or hold the codes for our nuclear weapons (yes, we have them) because as I said above this man is living in a fantasy world where he thinks he’s on the Apprentice or something else.

Focus on being the President instead of telling us why Arnold Schwarzenegger was fired from Celebrity Apprentice (He wasn’t) or telling us why SNL needs to be canceled because of Alec Baldwins performance of you. (Side note: Previous Presidents have been parodied to their amusement).  Or don’t decline the White Correspondent’s Dinner because of the fear of getting roasted (Be a man.. You were roasted by Comedy Central).

Bottom line: Donald Trump is a racist, bigot, narcissist, ego manacic, conceited and worst of all morally unethical (If you think he separated himself from his business then you are sadly mistaken).

The majority of his staff is inexperienced and are pretty much afraid to stand up to him.

Sean Spicer is a moron

Kelly Ann Conway is an ignorant putz

Steve Bannon hates everybody

Jeff Sessions is a hick who doesn’t understand questions he’s asked

Jared Kushner is a disgrace to Judaism

I mean this list can go on and on but I think you get the idea.

And I know that people reading this will call me out on what I’ve written and that’s ok because he truth needs to be told not the one that you’ve been led to believe is the truth  although Lenin once said that “tell a lie long enough and eventually it becomes truth”.

Make no mistake. the media will NOT be silent nor will we allow Trump to rewrite history as he sees fit. We will fight for what we believe in. Fight for what’s right and continue being guided by what this country was founded upon.

Because if we want to “Make America Great Again”, we need to stop Making America Hate and turning against one another.

America. It is the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave”. It is a country where we can speak freely, write freely and practice freely. We are the United States of America and one nation under God.

 

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

And that includes EVERYONE EVERYWHERE.

Why Donald Trump Is A Stupid, Stupid Man

Donald Trump is not a well man. I’ve never seen anyone as delusional as he is.. Think about it… Here’s a man who thinks he’s right and everyone else is wrong. A guy who thinks he’s God’s gift to humanity. A guy who is now our Commander in Chief. The question is is he fit for the job? Well, let’s find out shall we?

I said that Mr. Trump is a stupid man and I know people will call me out on this and that’s okay but in order to understand this, let’s post some opinions (of which are entirely my own).

Here’s a man who no matter what happens will go on Twitter and just tweet away. (For examples, click to go to them). Donald Trump’s Tweets

1)Think about this : During the transition period, he was busy focusing on how he didn’t like his portrayal on SNL and called on NBC to cancel the show or how Arnold Schwarzenegger was destroying the Apprentice and that NBC should fire him.. Really? This is what’s important to you?

2) During the campaign, Trump was convinced that the election was rigged against him (it wasn’t). A claim he still stands by even now after winning.. Who cares though? You already won so why should it matter? Just yesterday he claimed that he lost the popular vote due to many illegal votes and that his administration will look into it.. Forget the fact that you win by electoral votes and not by a “popularity contest”, but why are you still focused on this? Even Trump’s legal team says there’s no evidence to back this up but Trump says he “believes so”. Well, okay then. Intrestingly, one of his top aides, Steve Bannon is registered to vote in two states which itself is illegal so why isn’t Trunp concerned about that? Steve Bannon Commits Voter Fraud Trump Claims Voter Fraud

3) He repealed Obamacare despite not having something to replace it which isnt the best idea.. I mean if your going to replace something, make sure you have a back up or millions of people will be without insurance which, down the line will become problematic..

4) He wants to build a wall. Okay, I get it. He thinks a wall will keep the “bad people” out however history shows us that did doesn’t work. If people want to get into the country they will find a way to do so. Look at Hamas: They found a way around it by building a network of tunnels to get into Israel. In Germany they climbed over the walls. In Russia, we had the cold war (It wasn’t until Regean where he uttered those famous words. Point being, if the walls in those countries couldn’t keep people out what makes Trump’s wall different? And another thing, what about family? What if I live here and have family in Mexico? Does this mean I can no longer go? Need special permission? Join them but never allowed back? Sure, anyone can build a wall and if we do that I fear this will set us back 50/60 years or worse. Trump’s Wall        Trump’s Executive Order

But here area few things to ask yourself:

  • Are you unaware of the 1970 treaty that requires that  needs the permission and approval of Mexico
  • Are you willing to put people out of work
  • Are you aware of the ecomincal reprussicans that will come if you buildthis wall? For instance: The states that border Mexico and the people who rely on them for their livleyhood?
  • What about the Rio Grande? Have you stopped to think how this would be affected?
  • Mexico refuses (and rightly so) topay for the wall yet Mr. Trump insists that “they will pay for it one way or the other.” Well, if I didn’t know any better that sounds like a threat and/or a demand.
  • Furthermore, you are asking taxpayers to pay for this. To that I say that if you want a damn wall, fund it yourself and leave us out of it.
  • Finally, let’s forget that there already is wall up (there is) wallbut the one that Trump wants built has been proven to be ecomically imposible. Not to mention years of manpower that we do not have and assume for a moment it is built, who monitors it? Who funds it? By the way, some of Trump’s clothing line is Made in Mexico..
  • Last but not least, Donald Trump said that after talking with the President of Mexico, he agreed that it’s in everyone’s best interest if the White House canceled the upcoming meeting. Only one problem. NEVER HAPPANED. The Mexican President tweeted that it was his decision because Trump has no respect for him or his country.

5) Now, the other thing that Trump vowed to do and did was sign an executive order to ban immigration. Trump’s Order On Immigration Sure ok it’s easier said then done. I have a few issues with this as does many American citizens . In NY alone, Mayor De Blasio held a press confrence AGAINST this as did many other Mayors. What was Trump’s response?   Immigrant Order

Cut off funding to those states that do so. But:

  • You can’t do that. Nope it’s law that you can’t withold money from a state unless the money will be used for something other then what it is intended for.
  • Also, holding states hostage will prove what exactly?
  • There are millions of immigrants living across the U.S. many are legal and many have family. So question is: Will you deport legal citizens regardless of wheather or not they did anything wrong?
  • Do we have the resources? Time? Money?

I find this interesting that people have come to this country to make a better life for themselves and family and one man wants to take that all away. Well,Mr Trump (No, I will not call him the P word) not every Muslim, Arab aren’t “evil”.

Will the protests work? I don’ know. But we need to so we can be heard and maybe just maybe make a difference.

 

The Rogue One (Star Wars) Trailer

HERE IT IS. What we’ve all been waiting for. The newly released trailer that debuted during the Olympics. While we only got to see the back of his head, I have no doubt that Vader will be featured fully in the 2nd trailer that will be released closer to December. And yes, James Earl Jones “returns” to voice the guy.

So what do you think? Thoughts?

My Suicide Squad Review

 When the first trailer for this was released the anticipation for this movie was at an high. Even more when Jared Leto was cast as Mr. J. It’s one of the lesser known comics (heck, i never even heard of it) but the premise was a good one. Take a bunch of bad guys do do your dirty work with the chance that you will die. What can go wrong with that? Well, everything as it turns out. 

After the disaster that was BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, the brass at WB didn’t take any chances with SS. SUICIDE SQUAD was designed to be a dark film with a R rating (something David Ayers is known for) however, WB brass was so nervous after  BVS failure that they took no chances and sadly this shows throughout.

This whole movie is a mess from start to finish. The “origin” stories are rushed as is Batman .(Yes, it’s Ben Affleck and yes it’s a Cameo). It’s as if the writer couldn’t even bother for the people who are unfamiliar. There was more to the Harley Quinn origin that ended up on cutting room floor.  Speaking of cameos, there’s a blink and you miss it one of FLASH (which for some reason is making an appearance and again, has nothing to do with the story).

 Now, everyone was making a big deal about Leto’s Joker and how he would portray him. I have a question? Why is Joker even in this movie? What purpose does he serve? He gets 20 minutes of screen time if that. It was a waste of a character that had nothing to do with the story. Seriously, the majority of his scenes are with Harley and we don’t know what his motivation is. 

Speaking of which, every one of these characters are under developed. Who’s Rick Flagg? Why was he assigned the Squad? What’s his backstory? Why should I care about him? Who is the Squad? Seriously, every single one of these characters are not very well developed. We know nothing about them and frankly, I didn’t care if they lived or died. Heck, even Will Smith was stiff here.

  The script (or lack thereof) made no sense. The story was just all over the place. Even the villain (If you can call it that) was a mess not to mention cliched.This is the same type of villain we’ve seen in the past. You know the “humanity must be enslaved or destroyed because of what they’ve done.” But what exactly have they done to ENCHANTRESS? We are never told.. She(along with her brother) just wants revenge for something that happened thousands of years ago. 

I really wanted to like this movie and I tried but there’s just way to many plot holes. This is a good example of “two many hands in the kitchen” where you take the director/writer’s vision and want changes because you are scared and that may have led to this mess. WB brass wanted reshoots to supposedly “inject more humor” (May or may not be true. No one’s saying) but man oh man this is one big mess. Story wise, it makes no sense. The villain (If you can call her that) is such a waste as is Katana (Who for some reason never bothered to learn English and again, a character who isn’t developed). 

 You know this movie is bad when as you are leaving you over hear this conversation: “This makes me NOT want to see JUSTICE LEAGUE.”  ” Yes, well I can say the same for WONDER WOMAN.” And  if this is how Justice League will turn out then WB has a serious problem. Someone from Marvel should give a class to them on how to make comic book movies because when you have two highly anticipated movies that bomb, there’s a serious problem.

In a way, I feel bad for David Ayer because what he wanted to make most likely got vetoed and this is what happens when executives care more about the money then making the fanboys happy. It’s also what caused both parties to fight and create bad blood between the two.

Watching Suicide Squad made me wanna join the squad just so I could commit suicide to escape this wretched mess. A mess I give a 3 out of 10.
