Trump — Guilty of High Crimes or Madness?

Trump — Guilty of High Crimes or Madness?

This is all you need to know now:  Collusion — Russian connections  Coverup — hide, deny and lie about the facts  Obstruction of justice — Senate and Congress — do your job. You took and oath of office The Russian collusion is just now too wide and obvious.  Only Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles would not be able to see this.  And even they could.   It is never about the crime.  It is about the coverup.  They never were…

Trump is Everyone and No One

Trump is Everyone and No One

  This cannot last four years.   Who is Trump?  The elusive everyone and no one.  He is the illiterate, sociopathic, narcisstic liar that all his little Zombies love.  How can we categorize his zombie army? 60% of his zombie army are racist bigoted assholes.  The troll army has its hero. The Troll-in-chief. Twitter perfected. 30% of his zombie army are just plain stupid. They don’t know any better. They believe everything. They know nothing. 10% are simply naïve. It…

The Electoral College Could Prevent Trumpism But Won’t

The Electoral College Could Prevent Trumpism But Won’t

The electoral college has not voted. Trump has not been elected!  He lost the popular vote.  By 2.6 millions votes.  Never forget this. He has won nothing yet. And already he is causing world wide instability.  You are not President Mr. Trump. So shut up. The Electoral college is our last hope.   Preventing the legitimacy of a demogogue.   This has never happened.  We have been close.  Huey Long — The KingFish. George Wallace.  History had a way of…

The useful idiot or the Manchurian candidate

The useful idiot or the Manchurian candidate

What is the useful idiot.  Who was the Manchurian candidate? In political jargon, a useful idiot is a person perceived as a propagandist for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who is used cynically by the leaders of the cause. The useful idiot could be either a well-meaning “liberal” who has affinity for Russian Soviet politics despite all atrocities committed. But conversely can also be applied to individuals who have legitimate connections with Russian apparatus….

Trump Denies Russian Influence

Trump Denies Russian Influence

Putin and Russia were destablizing this election. So was a rogue unit of the New York City branch of the FBI. All Trump zombies are full denial mode — as always. Another left wing conspriacy.  Really? Who is most vociferous on all accounts? Republicans.  The very few who have some degree of courage to speak out. This is how Watergate started. Maybe you are too young to remember .. or care to remember. It’s all very neat.  Russian sources fed…

Speak up — stop apologizing

Speak up — stop apologizing

It is time to stop apologizing. This is not a time for Kumbaya.  Think it can’t happen here?  “We’ll just wait and see.”  “Get over it.”  Like a deer frozen in the headlights of an onrushing 18 wheeler. Yikes!!! The show has not even begun yet. Trump has perfected the new media.   Marshall McLuhan warned us.  “The medium is the message.” he said, it’s the media that have changed our patterns of thought and behaviour. Now, in a world…

Trump Turning the White House into a Cash Machine

Trump Turning the White House into a Cash Machine

A somnambulistic public watches without much obvious resistance.  This is our president elect. Before he takes office, he is already impeachable.  The emoluments clause. So many good people have raised alarm bells.  No one listens.  “Just entertain me.”   It’s all Roman Circus. Trump turning the White House into a cash machine is a quick video.  A must watch.  Cha Ching!  Shades of Pink Floyd Money. The Press Christiane Amanpour, who knows something of state repression growing up in Iran, recoils in…

This is Not Normal

This is Not Normal

This is not normal.  Keep repeating.  This is not normal.  We are in a fog.   Every day is a “whatever.”   Trump is incompetent and dangerous.   Can you say that.   Surrounding himself with a rogues gallery.    Or is this the ultimate plan.   See … government really is incompetent, so we must replace it with “something new.”   Drain the swamp.  Hardly.   You have mucked it up more. In 1932 this is how it quickly…

Trumpism in a Post Truth World

Trumpism in a Post Truth World

We live in a post-truth world. By all objective measures Trump is a pathological liar — an inveterate sociopath of the 1st order. There is no doubt about this. And his greatest detractors are not Democrats or “left-leaning newspapers.” Whatever that means. Listen to the original comments by Ted Cruz, David Frumm, Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham, Bill Kristol. Hardly left-leaning. The list is endless. This man is a pathological liar. He doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies. He…
