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?

Donald’s Tax Returns

Last night something extraordinary happened. Something so stupendous that everyone dropped what they were doing to take a gander. And what pray tell happened? Nutjob Trump’s 2005 taxes were “leaked” to the public via Rachel Maddow who “premiered it on her show dissecting it in full which you can see here:  Trump’s Tax Returns and see it below:taxes

In my last post, l mentioned how a President needs to know the laws of this country and be versed in the Constitution. Well, last night the White House released a statement verifying that the tax return was legit and then decided to do a 180 by saying that the dishonest media illegally obtained the returns and shared it. They went on to say that by doing so a crime was committed. But according to the First Amendment,  a journalist has every right to publish them as they see fit.

Second, there’s no law that says a person CANNOT release their taxes while under an audit . The IRS even said that but at this point we all know why he won’t release because he has things he’d rather keep hidden. And by the way, every single President (after Nixon) released their returns. Not only that, Hillary released hers during the campaign going all the way back  to 1971. However, this is a fairly new law as (once again) Nixon’s actions caused a candidate to release them so there’s no conflicts of interests and/or anything that might prevent them from becoming a President.

Donald Trump doesn’t care about the American people. He became President to benefit himself and his friends. (even though Trump isn’t running the country ). If he hears something he doesn’t like, this is how it plays out:

Judge ruled ban unconstitutional: TRUMP: BAD JUDGE. DOESN’T KNOW ANYTHING. BLAME HIM IF WE’RE ATTACKED.

Media Reports On SOmething He Doesn’t Like: TRUMP: FAKE NEWS. DISHONEST.

Tax Return Leaked: TRUMP: YOU STOLE IT. OBTAINED IT ILLEGALLY. AIRING IT WITHOUT PERMISSION.

I have never seen a President act like a child who throws  tantrums when he doesn’t get what he wants. Seriously? This man is a disgrace and is making America look bad. He obviously has no idea how Government works nor does he seem to care.

I hope that loyal Trump supporters wake up and see this man for who he really is which is a FRAUD. A FRAUD and a BULLY. Because instead of Making America Great Again he’s Making America Hate Again and that cannot stand because we saw what happened the last time that happened and sadly, it’s slowly happening again and if Presidents Bannon and Trump (Yes I said it ) don’t return to reality, then we are all doomed.

 

 

 

 

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.

Election Day 2012

     Election Day 2012 will not only go down as one of the most historic ones but also the one that angered many. Until now I have tried to abstain from my views and thoughts regarding said election because of the sensitivity of the topic. Politics in general is a no no in my book when it comes to talking about it because people tend to get very uptight when discussing it especially when it came to this year’s election. Actually, it was more of a civil war that broke out. Here are my thoughts regarding this whole situation of which will be my last time discussing it.

      As you know, Obama  won a second term which angered many. While I can understand why, there’s really nothing we can do about it. America is a democratic country which means we have a right to vote whomever we choose without any restrictions attached. It’s hard to know who voted for who (although based on my research majority of voters picked Romney) but the way I see it, we haven’t had a “good” President since Reagan.  So even if Romney had won, who’s to say he would have done better then Obama or Bush? 

    Four years ago we made history by voting in the first black President. Four years ago we were in similar situations that we are in now. While I’m not happy about it, I have to say that he won the election because of several factors:

THE WAR IN IRAQ

Say what you will about this but Obama had promised to get the troops home in a reasonable amount of time and he did. He systematically ended the war and gave Iraq what they had sought for years. Give the man credit where it’s due.

OSAMA BIN LADEN

When it comes to this, people are pretty ignorant. They say that it was the Navy Seals that killed him. Yes, this is true. However the President ordered the hit allowing them to do so. They had one chance to do this and it was down in the middle of the night and in secrecy. With Osama dead so is Al Queda. Well, they are still around but not as big as a presence as they were before. I believe Romney was quoted as saying killing Osama was wrong (I’m not sure though).

HURRICANE SANDY

Many people criticized him for acting to quickly. Huh? Why is this a bad thing? He came to our aid when we needed it the most. Although he did offer to survey NY, our idiot Mayor turned him down (he won NY anyway). While Gov Christie is a Republican, he welcomed Obama with open arms and he said” This is what two people do in times like these because it’s the mature thing to do.” In my opinion, I believe this is why the President got all of NJ because in their hour of need he came to them.

AUTO INDUSTRY

I don’t know how many people remember this as it happened awhile back but when the industry was in trouble, Obama came to it’s aid to bail them out. It was a risky move for the Government but imagine what would have happened had they not done so. As a thank you for having their jobs saved, Michigan voted for Obama. A state that usually goes to the Republicans.

Finally:

THE DEBATES

I watched bits and pieces of this. Read most of it in order to understand it better. While doing so, I realized that Romney reminded me much of McCain who was running four years ago and Romney was acting just like him. I remember vividly how McCain answered every time he was asked a question by telling us about his time as a POW. Well fine but what does that have to do with the question that was asked. When Romney was asked about his plans, his answer was “They’ll be reveled when I’m in the White House.” Really? That confident? Why can’t you have reveled it during the debates when you had the chance? If I am going to vote for you I want to know why… Where do you stand on this and this? How will you get America back to where she should be? Also, to me, Paul Ryan looks like a young Ross Perot.

Biden, to me, is a  really good speaker. He had my attention the entire time. He was articulate and to the point and knew what he was talking about while Ryan just seemed to keep lying at all costs and do we really want someone like that in office? I mean I saw right through Romney. Something about him just kept rubbing me the wrong way. Came Election Night and Romney was so confident that he’d win that it was being reported that he didn’t bother to write a concession speech(He also waited till the last minute to call Obama hoping for a turnaround that never had a chance) unlike Obama who had one for each just in case.

     I’m not going to praise Obama and say all is right with everything he did because he’s not perfect but I do try to understand the issues and what he did so far like a rational person and then I weighed that with Romney’s vision and it just didn’t seem like it was adding up. While I’m not taking sides, I went back and re read the ideals of both candidates and I realized that like every President before him, Obama had to come and finish the job started by Bush and while he may not have done many things that I may or may not agree with, I do believe that people are entitled to a second chance. This time, maybe he can prove people wrong. By the way, the fact that Ryan and Romney both lost their home state to Obama should really tell you something. And honestly, this race was over before it began. No one expected a winner to be declared so early and we won’t know how it happened but it became a historic night.

    In the end though, he is our President whether we like it or not. Will never know why people went for him instead of Mitt and frankly I don’t care only because there’s nothing that can be done about it. It is what it is. But to be angry about it or blame everything on him really is irrelevant. People seem to be quick to judge him without knowing facts and at the end of the day facts are facts and you can’t change that. It may seem like he’s doing things that you may not like but then again, we don’t know the whole story. So all we can do is suck it up for another four years and hope for the best.
