Day 192. 

Yesterday we heard from our beloved leader as he gave a speech about Islam in Saudi Arabia.  He called on all Muslim states to “weed out this evil” of terrorism.  He said they should force all of the terrorists out.

Then we heard Mike Pence, his empty suite vice president talk about “tolerance” towards opposing views on college campuses.  Pence decried the intolerance towards speakers on college campuses around the country.

I find both of these comments to be very disturbing.  I find both of these comments to be extremely prejudiced.  Not because they were given by so-called “conservatives” but because of the lies they were telling and because neither of these “leaders” of our country actually practice what they preach.

We all know that terrorism and intolerance are both evil.  We all know that terrorism is also an outgrowth of intolerance.  Especially when you talk about religious terrorism.  In the Middle East and other parts of the world, there are Muslim Extremists who are totally intolerant towards other religions and as a result they engage in serious terrorism.

That is evil in anyone’s definition of the word.  They are not interested in anything except their own fanaticism and thus are willing to kill others simply because they don’t believe the same thing as these fanatics.  They need to be rooted out.

However, they are not alone in their religious terrorism practices.  We have plenty of religious terrorists right here at home.  The problem is that no one in the political world wants to talk about it and no one wants to do anything about it.  Especially our president and vice president.  Rather, they are encouraging the practice of religious terrorism in our country because this terrorism isn’t the result of Islam, it its the result of Radical Christianity.  It is also the result of “conservative” intolerance.

As it turns out, the State of Texas has become our own version of a Caliphate of hate towards anyone who does not follow the Radical Christian Terrorist beliefs.  They are not alone either.  They are joined by states like Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and others.

The real danger is that these Radical Christian Terrorists are not all private citizens.  The real problem is they are actually in control of these state’s legislatures.  And, they are not afraid of their Radical Christian Terrorism being found out.  They are quite open about it and are very proud of it.

In the Caliphate of Texas, they are in the final days of their legislative session and are working very hard to pass their terrorist agenda into law.  And, their head terrorist is the governor and he is very willing to sign any terrorist bill into law.

At first they tried to pass an anti-LGBTQ law.  But that got stymied in their own legislature.  So, they have decided to tear the bill into parts and “add amendments” to necessary legislation so they can get their terrorist agenda into the law books.

Of course, they are masquerading these laws in the agenda of “Religious Freedom”.  Which tells you immediately that it is nothing more than a terrorist agenda.  The first big bill was HB 3859, that will allow state-funded adoption and foster care agencies to turn away applicants on religious grounds, denying parents who are LGBT, or even those who are Jewish, Muslim or atheist. It passed the Texas House and is now moving through the Senate, causing a great deal of concern because similar bills have been passed in other states, including in South Dakota this year.

This bill is nothing more that an open attempt to refuse the adoption of needy children to anyone who is not considered by these terrorists as “straight, homosexual, Christian” parents.  Then there is the insidious attempts to write discrimination into must-pass bills that have already been debated. An amendment added at the last-minute to a nursing care bill, HB 2950, for example, would bar the Texas Board of Nursing from punishing discriminatory actions if they are committed in the service of a nurse’s “religious beliefs.”

Under this amendment a nurse could cite his religious beliefs as a reason to refuse to care for a gay patient on the grounds that he believes homosexuality is a sin or is against his faith.  Likewise, a nurse who believes that men are the head of the household could breach client confidentiality to disclose a woman’s medical condition to her husband against her wishes.

Another amendment added to HB 2561, a pharmacy services regulatory bill, pharmacists could opt-out of the practices that are standard among pharmacists across the country, based on personal religious convictions. For example, a pharmacist could decide not to fill a prescription for hormone therapy for a transgender customer, claiming doing so goes against his or her religious beliefs about gender. Or, a pharmacist could use religion as justification to refuse to serve African-American customers because she believes the Bible mandates the segregation of the races.

There are two other bills that would regulate legal services, SB 302 and SB 303, that now have amendments which allow for religious refusal by state-licensed attorneys. If these bills become law with these amendments an attorney could deny his or her duty to inform a client about his or her rights in a divorce proceeding, for example, even trying to talk the client out of getting a divorce, all based on the attorney’s religious objection to divorce.

It is not hard to determine the true intent of these pieces of legislation.  They are intended to discriminate against and to scare all people in Texas who are not white conservative Christians.  These amendments and laws are intended to hurt people that the terrorists in the Texas State Legislature don’t like.  They are written and proudly put on display for all to see their intolerance against everyone not a white Christian.  In short, they are open displays of intolerant terrorism.  There is no other reason for them.

If you are going to write me that if you don’t like your lawyer, pharmacist, or nurse, get a different one forget about it.  If you are that intolerant of others, then you should not have chosen such a career in the first place.  There is no room in professions like these for intolerance.  Additionally, actions like these are in violation of the Ethics Oaths these professions are governed by.

Then we have another perfect example of intolerance on full display which is nothing more than a terrorist act.  This one comes due to the idea that the City of New Orleans is removing Confederate statues from the city.  This action is being taken after a vote of the city council.  Naturally, the white supremacists are up in arms and complaining the city is removing “our heritage” from city property.

In an attempt to stop other cities from taking such an action, the Louisiana Legislature is trying to pass a law that would make it ‘illegal” to remove such statues unless there was a “ballot” issue where the majority of the people vote to remove them.  Another attempt of a state legislature telling local governments what they can and cannot pass in their own jurisdictions.  Meaning, only the state can control a city’s monuments with the city paying for them, of course.

But the worst example of intolerant terrorism came not from anyone in Louisiana, but rather than a Missouri legislator.  On Saturday, Karl Oliver, a Republican member of the state’s House of Representatives described the “destruction” of Confederate monuments in Louisiana as “heinous and horrific” and compared leaders in that state to Nazis.

He said in his tweet:

The destruction of these monuments, erected in loving memory of our family and fellow Southern Americans, is both heinous and horrific.  If the, and I use this term extremely loosely, “leadership” of Louisiana wishes to, in Nazi-ish fashion, burn books or destroy historic monuments of OUR HISTORY, they should be LYNCHED!  Let it be known that I will do all I can to prevent this from happening in our state!

I find it ludicrous when any so-called conservative calls someone else a Nazi when they are trying to rid their community of white supremacist symbols.  After all, it was the Nazis who epitomized white supremacy.  Which tells me that erecting white supremacy symbols is more Nazi-ish than removing them.  Especially when the City Council votes to remove them.  They are the representatives of the city residents.

Plus, everyone who has followed my writing knows I consider these “white heritage” nuts to be traitors to our country.  They are more interested in pledging loyalty to a failed, losing party of a war, than to the country of which they claim to be patriots.

But, their view is the only view that matters to them, therefore, it is supposed to be the only view that matters to us.  That is the full definition of intolerance.  And, it is terrorism if you tell people if they disagree or remove a confederate statue, they should by lynched.

Far more Americans have been killed by Radical Christian Terrorists in this country than any other group, including Islamic Terrorists.  The difference is that when a Muslim commits a horrible act, it is automatically called terrorism.  When a Radical Christian Terrorist commits a horrible act, it is called a “one-off” or that person has “mental problems”.

And, both our beloved leader and our vice president are mum on all of this Radical Christian Terrorist activity.  See, you don’t have to “kill” someone to be considered a terrorist.  You merely need to make them afraid of going out on the streets, or in their own home, or know that they can be discriminated against simply because they are different.

The laws being passed in the Caliphate of Texas and other Republican controlled states are forms of terrorism because they formally make discrimination “legal”.  You won’t hear beloved leader or our vice president voice any condemnation of these acts either.  Beloved leader got elected because he ran a hate campaign.  Our vice president signed such terrorism laws while he was Governor of Indiana.

If beloved leader is really interested in “weeding out terrorism” he needs to begin at home.  If he really wants to make terrorism something to be afraid of carrying out, he needs to crack down on the Radical Christian Terrorists in our country.

If pence is really interested in ending intolerance, then he needs his own “come to Jesus moment” and start condemning the very laws that Texas is passing and the ones he signed into law in Indiana.

I am not holding my breath about either of these cowards doing anything different.  They are part of the radical Christian terrorists and they are very proud of that fact.  All of this is proof of the conservative Republican agenda to remove all non-white, non-Christian people from the country.  They want a white only, Christian only country.

Only once they get it, they will work to eliminate the Christian sects they don’t like either.  So, you are in the crosshairs too.  Unless you are part of the Radical Christian Terrorist organization.

And, the shirts keep marching along.

Day 189. 

Later today our beloved leader is heading overseas on his first foreign trip.  He plans to visits places like Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Vatican, Belgium and Italy.  What could possible go wrong?

Just look at the wonderful week he has just completed.  He fired his FBI Director and had his surrogates lie about the reason.  He then told us why he fired him.  It was because of that “Russian thing”.

The next day he gave away highly classified information to the Russians.  Then he had McMasters go out and lie about that by saying it never happened.  Only the next day admitting that he did give them the information and McMasters then trying to say it was okay to do so.

He met with the Turkish strongman at the White House, then watched as the strongman’s body guards attacked protesters in front of the Turkish Ambassadors residence.  The action he took after this incident was his usual nothing.  Oh, he called the Ambassador to the State Department, but no one was thrown out of the country for the attack.

There is video showing the strongman talking to his body guards before the attack, and then him standing there watching with approval as they attacked the protesters.  Beloved leader must have approved of the attack since he didn’t do anything of consequence in response.

Now he is off on his first foreign trip.  He claims that he is going to try to bridge the differences between the “three great religions”.  Yeah, like that will happen.  He is even going to give a speech about Islam in Saudi Arabia.  And, that speech is being written by one of his advisors who said the Muslim Ban was the best accomplishment of trump’s administration.  He has also said that Islam is not a religion, but rather a disease.  And, he is the one writing the speech on Islam beloved leader is going to give in Saudi Arabia.  What could go wrong?

He is going to visit Israel right after he gave the Russians that highly classified information which NBC News is reporting came from, you guessed it, Israel.  Then, one of his top advisors claimed that the West Wall was not “in Israel it was in the West Bank”.  How’s that for greasing the skids before you visit the country that claims the West Wall as their holiest place on earth.

We also learned that beloved leader wanted to visit Masada.  However, he had to cancel the trip because it turns out that you cannot land his helicopter at the “historical heritage site”.  Why would anyone who knows anything about historical sites and religious sites even contemplate using a helicopter to get there?

While in Italy, beloved leader is going to meet with Pope Francis.  The very Pope that trump doesn’t like and the very Pope that has said some real unflattering things about trump.  What could possibly go wrong?

He is also going to meet with our NATO allies.  Yes, the very alliance that he claims is antiquated and thinks owes us lots and lots of money because he doesn’t understand the alliance agreement.  Additionally, they are going to hammer him on the Paris Accord that is set up to fight climate change.

Our European allies are not thrilled with trump’s plan to “pull out” of the agreement.  As a matter of fact, they are really pissed off at the suggestion of our pulling out.

I also wonder just how he tends to explain that little faux pas about giving the Russians that highly classified information.  How does he explain his willingness to share with the Russians information that we didn’t even share with all of our allies?  That one little thing could spell doom for beloved leader and his attempt to tell NATO how great America is at “leading” the free world.

Since he took office, beloved leader has pissed off our German allies.  He backed the Fascist candidate in the French election.  And, he even managed to piss off our Australian allies.  So, what could possibly go wrong?

It seems funny to me that about the only time I see trump really smiling and having a great time is when he is meeting with dictators.  He smiled broadly when he met with the Turkish strongman.  He really had a great time when he met with the Russians.

But, when he met with the Australians he didn’t smile.  When he met with Angela Merkel, he wouldn’t even shake her hand for the pictures.  And, he never smiled when he was with her.

So, we have a president about to leave on a nine-day, five country trip overseas whose campaign is under criminal and counter espionage investigation for possible collusion with the Russian Hacking.  He is damaged at home over these investigations and his poor handling of the Comey firing.  His lack of care with highly classified information.  And, a legislative record of absolutely no accomplishments.

We are about to be represented by a president who has accomplished nothing, knows nothing, and is totally incompetent.  He has heaped praise on our adversaries and pissed off our allies.

I ask again, what could possibly go wrong?  Maybe those huge cheering crowds when he leaves in the cartoon above are hoping he will never return.

And, the shirts keep marching along.

Day 188. 

Yesterday the Department of Justice announced that they have ordered a Special Counsel to oversea the Russian Hacking and any possible collusion between them and any member of the trump campaign.  That announcement was met with hails of praise about the decision.

I agree that we do need a special counsel or special prosecutor because it is time we actually find out what happened, who may have been involved, and how we are going to make sure it doesn’t happen again.  And, quite frankly, the Congressional investigations are running at a snail’s pace with no sign they will pick up anytime soon.

We also had a report that Mike Flynn told the trump transition team that he was under investigation by the FBI before he took the position of National Security Advisor.  According to the report, Flynn told the now White House Counsel about the investigation on January 4.  Before the inauguration.

Which begs the question of how could trump still name him as National Security Advisor when he knew Flynn was under investigation for his time as an unregistered foreign agent for Turkey?

We also had a report that Kevin McCarthy, the second in command in the House Republican Caucus told a group of Republicans in 2016 that he thought trump was on Putin’s payroll.

On June 15, 2016 McCarthy said:  “There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump.”   Some of the Republicans laughed but McCarthy quickly added “swear to God”.  These comments were actually taped by someone, and the tape was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.

When the story first broke both Ryan and McCarthy claimed the conversation “never happened”.  But, when the Post told them they had the tape, they changed their story.  Instead of it never happening, they said it was a “bad attempt at humor”.

This took place exactly one day after the news broke about the hacking of the DNC.  And, right after Ryan and McCarthy came out of a meeting with Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, who had described a Kremlin tactic of financing populist politicians to undercut Eastern European democratic institutions.

Getting back to yesterday, when the news of the special counsel was first announced, trump seemed to be happy and claimed it would end in total clearance for him and then he could move on with his agenda.  In a written statement he said “A thorough investigation will confirm what we already know — there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity.  I look forward to this matter concluding quickly.”

That story changed big time today.  In his usual Cowardly Lion manner, he tweeted this morning:  “it is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”  Then just to make sure he threw red meat to his base he tweeted:  “With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel (sic) appointed!”

Naturally he gave no indication of any of the so-called “illegal acts” by either Clinton or Obama.  The one thing you can say about the Obama administration is that they were not involved in anything “illegal”.  You may not like the man.  You may even hate his guts.  But, he was never at the center of any scandal nor did he get involved in any illegal acts.  Even Republicans called him “no drama Obama”.

But trump can’t stand the fact that his “team” appears to be neck-deep in Russian scandals.  His former Campaign Manager had dealings with “Russian backed Ukrainian government that was ousted by the people.  There are reports of his money laundering for Russians.  And then we learned that somehow he received a $3 Million mortgage that was mysteriously paid off for him.

Mike Flynn went to Moscow to sit next to Putin at a dinner for RT and was paid
$35,000 for his speech without reporting it.  He was a paid foreign agent for the Turkish government during the campaign and did not register as one.  He reportedly told trump team that he was under investigation before the inauguration.  Then he took the position of National Security Advisor and sat in on highly classified briefings that could have affected his client, and Russia.

As reported, there have been at least 18 undisclosed meeting between the trump transition team and Russian officials including ones involving Kushner, Sessions, and that infamous “phone call” about sanctions Flynn made.  Beloved leader call this a witch-hunt.  He calls this a hoax.  He calls this “fake news”.

To add insult to injury, beloved leader was as the Coast Guard Academy’s graduation ceremony yesterday.  During his speech he complained about how the media was out to get him.  He then bragged, again, about his victory.  He tried to tell the graduates to “fight, fight even when thing are against them”.

That is good advice since his administration wants to slash the Coast Guard’s budget.  They want to cut about $25 billion form the Coast Guard.  Including cutting all of the funding for new equipment the Coast Guard desperately needs.  Yet he had the audacity to claim that the Coast Guard was “necessary to help him fight to keep America Safe”.  Hard to do when you cannot afford the very operations that do that now.

And, all the while, we don’t hear anything of consequence from the Republicans.  Both Ryan and McConnell are fuming over the special counsel appointment because they didn’t want one named.  They both said so many times so they cannot be happy right now.  Still we hear the usual silence from them and their party.

Then we come to the final point.  Mike Pence.  As I wrote the other day, I believe Mike Pence is a co-conspirator in all of this.  I do not believe that Pence was lied to by Flynn but Pence was trying to cover for Flynn.  I believe he knew all along about Flynn’s actions and his not being registered as a foreign agent all the while working for trump and Pence’s campaign.

I further believe that in terms of domestic policy Mike Pence is far more dangerous than trump.  With the way trump behaves, we cannot be sure that he will rubber-stamp anything that Republicans in Congress put in front of him.  We know for certain that Pence will.

During his term as Governor of Indiana, Mike Pence was atrocious.  His poll numbers were at rock bottom which is why most people believe he even took the position as the running mate for trump.  He was the driving force behind the anti-LGBT laws passed in the state.  His track record of voter restriction, anti-LGBT laws and anti-civil rights are well-known.

He is a strong believer that rich people should pay less in taxes than you do.  He believes that health care is a privilege not a right and is in full support of the Americans Without Health Care Act.  If we wind up with a president pence after all of this, we can be sure that our country, domestically at least, will be far worse off than it is now.

As Grover Norquist once said, Mike Pence would be that President with “enough digits to hold a pen and sign everything Republicans put in front of him”.  Some are hoping that Pence will get caught up in all of this as well, and will be forced out.  But, that isn’t all that great either.  Remember the next one in line is none other than that unintelligent wank Paul Ryan.

When Richard Nixon was forced out over the Watergate Scandal, our country had one hope.  We had Gerald Ford sitting as the Vice President.  Ford was a moderate and there was hope that the nation would survive the scandal and get back to normal.  With Pence the sitting Vice President, I  don’t have that same hope for the country.

In the year 2017 we face a real problem.  We have an administration that has tried to “run things” like a dictatorship.  We have a political party, the Republicans, who want to dismantle our democracy.  We have another political party, the Democrats, that react to events rather than planning a real resistance that could put a stop to all of this.

What we really need is some people with cool heads and a plan to fight back.  What we need to have is people who love this country more than they love their party and power.  There are some Democrats who are remaining cool-headed and wanting to get to all of the facts no matter where they lead.  There are beginning to be cracks in the Republican side who want the same thing.

The problem is that there aren’t enough of them yet.  The leadership of the Republican Congress is still hiding their heads in the sand.  Or, should I say they have their heads up their asses.  As a result, we won’t know the extent of this problem for months if not years.

Only, it really doesn’t matter how this all plays out.  If trump is exonerated, he will remain in power and continue his authoritarian form of government.  He will be able to pass laws to “jail” journalists that write things against him, which is what he wants.  He will be able to destroy the country we all love.

If he is found to be involved in this mess, he will be forced out of office, if Republicans have the guts to impeach him and hold a trial in the Senate, and we will end up with president pence.  Which would be no better than having president trump.

Because the 2016 presidential election was a disgusting soap opera instead of a real campaign, we wound up with president trump and vice president mike pence.  As a result, we find ourselves in totally uncharted waters.  There is a major scandal hanging over the White House, and there are no heroes who will ride to our salvation.

To put it very bluntly, no matter what happens from here, we the American People are fucked.  We lose no matter how this plays out.  All of this played out in full during the campaign.  The very fact that trump refused to agree with out intelligence community that is was the Russians who hacked the DNC showed just where his loyalties lay.  His comment about hoping the “Russians would hack Clinton’s emails” showed that he liked the idea Russia was involved.  So, this was all foretold.

The best lesson to take from all of this is how important it is to actually participate in our election process.  Maybe if Americans took their responsibility to get out and vote seriously, we wouldn’t be where we are today.  If you didn’t vote last year and are looking for the real blame, look in the mirror.

And, the shirts keep marching along.

Day 186. 

Someone told me a few weeks ago that what trump really needed was an enema.  He claimed that would help clean out his system and allow him to think better.  My response was that if he had an enema, he would probably lose what brains he had left since his head was clearly up his ass.

Well, it looks like he had that enema and he lost his brains in the process.  Yesterday, the Washington Post had an article that claims beloved leader gave away highly classified material to the Russia Foreign Minister and their Ambassador.

During the election, Republicans were hounding Hillary Clinton about her private email server.  They claimed that if she had any classified information on it, whether or not intended, she was guilty of “possibly compromising classified information”.  And, I did not argue against that one point in the scandal.  Now, we have a president who simply hands over the information to an adversary and seems proud of it.

The Washington Post claimed in their story that trump gave information to Russia that could compromise intelligence sources from another country.  The information trump supposedly gave the Russians came for an intelligence partner” and that partner did not give trump authority to hand it out to the Russians.

The Washington Pose even claimed they had the full story of what was said, but did not print it at the urging of intelligence officials due to the dangerous problems it could cause.  They showed more control than beloved leader.

Of course, the administration claimed the story was a lie.  They even sent out National Security Advisor, McMasters, to claim the story was a lie.  He said to the press on the White House Driveway:

The president and the foreign minister reviewed common threats from terrorist organizations to include threats to aviation.  At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed, and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.  I was there and it did not happen.

Well, General, that is all nice to know.  Except, the story did not say you discussed everything you claim you did.  You simply didn’t deny the actual story.    The story said that you gave information to the Russians, complete with the city it was gathered in, allowing the Russians to figure out just who might have passed the information on to us.

That means that you possibly “outed” a foreign intelligence source and placed that person’s or people’s lives at stake.  What is with Republicans love of outing intelligence sources?  Dick Cheney outed one of our own CIA intelligence operatives on purpose to “politically hurt” the spouse.  Now our beloved leader possibly “outed” someone else’s intelligence operative.  What gives?

So far, the vast majority of Republicans are still supporting this moron in chief.  They claim that the president can “declassify” anything he wants at any time.  That may be true, but you would think that he would have had some discussions as to what he was going to do with the intelligence community before doing so.  Additionally, the information he supposedly handed out to the Russians came from someone else and they did not give permission to share that information with the Russians.

Are Republicans now claiming that the president can declassify information that came from someone else without asking permission or at least telling them first?  But, we must also look at the old adage of “here we go again”.  After sending out his National Security Advisor to try to quash the story, trump threw him under the bus.

This morning he all but admitted that he did do what the Washington Post said he did.  Give highly classified information to the Russians.  In his tweets he said:

As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining….

…to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.

Once again trump trotted out someone he thought the press would believe, and then less than 12 hours later tossed him under the bus and basically admitted doing what the story said he did, and then basically said “so what?  I am the president and I can do whatever I want”.

Of course he is also complaining about those nasty “leaks” to the press.  But, in this case, if trump decided to “declassify” the information, there cannot be a “leak” of unclassified information since it is unclassified and therefore open to the public.  Therefore, there really isn’t a leak.  That is using trump’s own reasoning.

My only question is who in the hell would want to actually work for the moron in chief?  How can anyone who is a true patriot, has served the country in uniform, or honestly served in public office continue to compromise their integrity by remaining in this administration?

We know that Mike Pence is in there just to hang around long enough to become president by default should trump finally gets impeached.  We know that Sean Spicer likes the spotlight and the pay.  We know that Bannon is trying to destroy our democracy and has openly said so.

But, what about McMasters and Mattis?  How can two generals who served our country honorably continue to serve this moron?  How can either of them even try to defend someone who hands out classified information to our adversaries and then brag about doing so?

The last couple of weeks have proven beyond a reasonable doubt that there are no “adults” in the administration.  We simply have a bunch of “yes” men and women who are only interested in stroking trump’s ego.

The last few weeks and the mess that keeps emerging from the White House shows just how incompetent everyone in the administration really are.  Or, it shows that everyone in the administration are really interested I helping trump set up his authoritarian government.

There can be no other reason for their continuing to hang around.  Either they are willing to help destroy our democracy or they are totally stupid and don’t deserve to serve our country.

The problem is that we have no way to get rid of all of these incompetents at one time.  The two people that Congress can even deal with, and that is through impeachment,  is the president and vice president, but leaves all of the rest of this rat nest to remain in power.

This president has made accusations against everyone from Former President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and even the Pope.  He has waged a war against the media because they won’t heap praise on him for doing nothing except get entangled with Russia.  He has waged war on the intelligence community, even calling them Nazis.

He fired the FBI Director that was leading the investigation about his campaign and possible collusion with Russia in the hacking scandal.  Possibly obstructing justice which is a crime.  He said he fired Sally Yates because she refused to defend Muslim Ban 1.0, but we are beginning to believe it was more because she had the courage to let his administration know that Flynn was compromised by the Russians.

He fired the District Attorney, along with all the rest, of Southern New York after it was discovered that he was investigating possible money laundering and Russian connections to the trump organization.  He was beginning to “follow the money”.

This administration has accomplished absolutely nothing.  Sean Hannity said that trump should just tweet his accomplishments instead of holding press briefings.  Maybe he is right.  That way we won’t hear from trump at all since he has no accomplishments to tweet about.  Why do you think he only tweets abuse at those who he doesn’t like?  There is nothing else to tweet about and he knows it.

So, what does beloved leader do next?  He hands over highly classified information to our biggest adversary in order to brag and show off what he may know about ISIS.  If the sources of that information turns up dead, you will be able to lay all of their blood at the feet of trump.

Beloved leader is set to go off on his first overseas trip to meet with our allies.  Don’t be surprised if some if not all of them give him the cold shoulder.  How can any of our allies trust us with classified information if beloved leader is going to share it with people we don’t share information with?

We won’t know how much damage beloved leader did to our relationship with our allies for some time.  I do know that they cannot be happy with this revelation.  They cannot be all that quick to share sensitive information with us if they fear trump will spill it out with his diarrhea mouth.

And, on the sideline are people like Paul Ryan who say nothing.  Only a handful of Republican Senators have denounced this action.  I have heard nothing from any Republican House member denouncing this action.

Now you know why I call them the House Republican Politburo.  They are willing to rubber stamp anything trump does in order to keep control of power.  They are totally spineless and pathetic.  In eighteen months we will have an opportunity to do something about them.  Let’s hope the American People do what is right and sweep the trash out of the House of Representatives.

And, the shirts keep marching along.

Day 174. 

Beloved leader has nominated a person for Secretary of the Army, and I hope this clown burns instead of becoming head of the Army.  The name is Mark Green.  He is also a State Senator in Tennessee.  Beloved leader could not have named a worse choice if he tried.  Or, maybe he did try to name the worst choice.

Unfortunately, Green is an example of what I believe to be the real evil we all face in the world today.  That is Religious Extremism.  Green has introduced and/or supported bills that openly discriminate against LGBTQ.  He is also famous for saying the transgender is a disease and that he hates it so much because it is “my duty to crush evil”.

I suggest that if it is his duty to “crush evil” he should head to the nearest interstate highway, wait for a truck to come by, and fall in front of it so his evil will truly be crushed.  Harsh?  Maybe.  But he is a perfect example of just how evil religious extremism really is.

It doesn’t matter which religion you wish to talk about.   Religious Extremism is evil all by itself.  It causes terrorism.  It causes discrimination.  It causes division among people.  It is the worst form of evil there could possibly be because they hide in the fact that they are “religious”.

All across this country you see evidence of this evil playing out in laws.  You see so-called “Freedom of Religion” laws that are nothing more than discrimination laws aimed at certain groups.  These laws have only one purpose.  To make one group’s religious beliefs the law of the land so their version has total control over the lives of everyone else.

There are several states that do not protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in housing, employment, or even medical care.  It is possible in many states for a gay couple to get married on Saturday, post their pictures on Facebook on Sunday, and get fired from their jobs and thrown out of their apartment on Monday.

All in the name of “religious liberty” for the extremists.  If they claim “religious beliefs” as their excuse to discriminate, that is just fine with the extremists.  As Green would say, they are simply “crushing evil”.

There are members of Congress that want to introduce and pass a bill called the First Amendment Restoration Act.  It is simply another “you can discriminate against those stupid gays if you claim religious beliefs and no one will be able to sue you for it”.

Back in February, beloved leader was rumored to sign an Executive Order that mirrored the provisions in this hate filled bill.  Now, it is rumored that he plans to do the same thing tomorrow at the National Prayer Breakfast.  Instead of “protecting the LGBTQ community as he promised in his campaign, he is going to demonize them to gain support of the religious extremists.

During the campaign, he often used the term “Radical Islamic Terrorism” to place blame for all of the terrorism in the world.  He claimed that he would defeat it and that President Obama never would because he would not use the term.  However, one term that is never said by anyone, except maybe me, is “Radical Christian Terrorism”.

When members of a black church are murdered in that church, it isn’t Radical Christian Terrorism, it is a looney person.  When an abortion doctor is murdered in his own church, it isn’t Radical Christian Terrorism, it is a “lone wolf” with mental problems.  When Muslims are beaten on the street by Christians, it isn’t Radical Christian Terrorism, it is just some angry people taking out their frustrations.

The Republican Party has survived by clinging to the Radical Christian Extremists and allowing them to use their form of terrorism against the rest of the country.  They even applaud the actions by these terrorists.  Just listen to Limbaugh, Beck, and Hannity.

Then, the other day Joel Richardson, author of apocalyptic Christian books claimed that all of the protests against beloved leader is the result of Satan.  He claims that people are not angry that beloved leader is an idiot and ruining the lives of millions of people, he blames Satan for causing the protests.

No, clown, it is people like you that Satan have influenced.  It is people who hide behind phony religious claims to discriminate, hate, and harm others that are the ones being influenced by Satan.

I was raised in a Christian family.  I attended private Catholic Schools through High School.  And, what I have seen from these religious extremists is anything but Christianity.  How can you claim to be Christian and not follow the teaching of the person who you claim to be your “Lord and Savior”?

I am often told by people that they know they are going to heaven because they have accepted Jesus as “My Lord and Savior”.  Yet, in daily practice, they continuously fail to follow the very teachings of the person they claim to love so much.

How can you claim to be Christian if you hate and want to discriminate against people of color?  If you really want to see the irony in all of that hate, Jesus was a person of color.  He was not a white man.  He had dark skin just like all of the people who lived in the region where he lived.

How can you claim to be Christian and still be willing to discriminate against anyone?  How can you claim to “love the sinner but hate the sin” as your excuse to discriminate against people?  That goes against his teaching that you should “not judge others”.  Be declaring that you can discriminate against LGBTQ community you are guilty of judging others.

How can you claim to be Christian and use terms like “users and takers”  How can you hate those unemployed and/or poor if you claim to be Christian. Wasn’t it Jesus who said “behold the birds of the sky.  They neither sow nor work the soil.  Yet, the father provides for them and how much greater are you than they”?

That doesn’t sound like someone who is advocating hard work.  As a matter of fact, the man did not hold a job himself.  He walked around the countryside preaching and hoping others would feed him and his 12 Apostles.

No, you cannot be Christian and discriminate, hate, and harm people who are different from you.  You cannot be Christian and believe that we are to “love our neighbors as we love ourselves” and hate, discriminate, and harm others.

I know that I have only used Christian teachings here, but that is because I know them better than other religions.  The fact of matter is that it doesn’t matter which religion you belong to, extremism is evil.  Extremism is only a tool used to acquire power over others.

Unfortunately, there is one political party that is very willing to appease this extremism in the name of votes and political power.  They are just as guilty of being evil as the extremists they want to appease.  That party is the Republican Party and they now control both Houses of Congress and the White House.

Our beloved leader has proven that he is just as guilty of this hate as the extremists he wants to court.  He has named the most openly racist person in my lifetime to be Attorney General.  He has named an extremely corrupt person to head up Health and Human Services.

In supposedly keeping his promise to drain the swamp, he has surrounded himself with Goldman Sachs heads.  The very bank that set up and led the economic collapse in 2008 by breaking banking laws and then getting away with it.

He has an open white supremacist as his chief political strategist.  He has named a corrupt man who is in the pockets of the fossil fuel industry to head up the EPA.

These moves have all been applauded by the so-called Conservative Christian Cult.  A group of religious extremists who want to establish an theocracy in our country and demolish our democracy.

When it comes to religious extremism, there is not morality.  The atheists I know have stronger morality than all of the Conservative Christians I know put together.  And, I know a lot more Conservative Christians than I do atheists.  Which I believe shows just how evil religious extremism really is.

With all of this in mind, it is essential that Green not be approved to become the Secretary of the Army.  We cannot allow such an extremist to have control over the best army in the world.  How can someone who claims that by discriminating against the LGBTQ community is “crushing evil” be in charge of a fully integrated Army?

How can we expect him to ensure that if a member of the Army who is LGBTQ is attacked, beaten up, or killed, he will do anything to punish the culprits.  How can we not expect that he would just say they were “crushing evil”.

But, that is the country we now seem to live in.  We live in a country where the religious minority are very willing to push their own beliefs on everyone else by getting their puppets in Congress to pass laws to codify their phony religious beliefs into our laws.

There certainly is real evil in the world.  That evil comes in the form of religious extremism.  As long as we have a Republican Party that is too willing to pass legislation to appease that religious extremism, we will continue to have a divided country.  It is the responsibility of Congress to pass laws to protect everyone in the country.  Including people who are different.

We are supposed to live in a secular country.  We are allowed to speak our minds.  We are allowed to believe in any religion we choose or none at all.  We live in a society that is supposed to protect the rights of everyone.  These Religious Extremists are fighting very hard to eliminate all of that from our lives.  They are fighting very hard to take control.

Sorry, but the real dangers to our way of life is not the so-called LGBTQ agenda.  It is not socialism.  It is not secularism.  It is Religious Extremism.  And, in this country, that means mostly, but all, Radical Christian Extremism.

These people are the ones behind things like the Muslim Travel ban.  They are behind the legal discrimination laws.  They are the ones behind the false freedom of religion laws.  They are the ones behind the killing of the separation of church and state.  Radical Christian Terrorists have killed more Americans since 9/11 than any other terrorist group.  Think about that for a minute.

We need to recognize this true danger to our way of life.  We need to put a stop to the Radical Christian Terrorists who are quietly and radically trying to change our laws for their own personal grab for power.  They are the true evil that our country faces every day.  They are the true terrorists that we face every day.

Please, believe in the religion of your choice.  Don’t believe in any religion if you don’t wan.  But, stay away from the extremists and help us defeat their true evil.  Otherwise, we will all lose and even you will fid yourself in their crosshairs.   Remember, evil is forever busy.

And, the shirts keep marching along.

Day 173. 

I hate to say this, but all I can say about the last few days is holy shit!  Yesterday trump went on an interview tour of some kind, and we came away shaking our heads, again.  One thing he did do was to officially tell us that “I stand by nothing”.  Imagine, we now have a so-called president who admitted that he doesn’t have any policies or ideas.  He simply doesn’t stand by anything.

This little quote came when CBS pressed him about his “Obama tapped my wires” tweets.  They were trying to get a firm idea from trump that he stood by his comments, which have been disproved time and again.  Our beloved leader got angry, as he usually does when pressed to retract some stupid thing he said, and blurted out that “I don’t stand by anything”.  Then he abruptly ended the interview, another trumpian tactic.

Also yesterday, he showed his total ignorance of our country’s history.  He asked “why did we have the civil war?  Why couldn’t we have avoided it?”  Well stupid, we had a civil war because the choices were simple.  Allow the southern states to secede because they wanted to keep slavery or stop the practice on our continent once and for all and keep our country whole.  He even questioned Abraham Lincoln, who is regarded as one of our best presidents ever.

Then he went on to say that if Andrew Jackson had been president then, we wouldn’t have had the civil war.  That Jackson was “very angry about the war”.  I must admit that it is hard for me to believe that Jackson was angry over the war since he was already dead for about 17 years before it even began.  But then, maybe trump uses his Ouija board and talks to the man.

He also seems to forget, of just doesn’t care, that Jackson was a slave holder.  He hated Native Americans so bad he signed the “get out” bill and forced all Native Americans from the east coast.  Thousands of them died along the “Trail of Tears”.  It would be easy to predict that if Jackson had been president at the time, we would have two different countries right now instead of one.  But, maybe that is what trump thinks should have happened.  That way he wouldn’t have to deal with all those “black people” who are just too much trouble for him.

Only the stupidity doesn’t end with him.  Steve Mnuchin claims that the stock market rises are all due to him.  He even told a bunch of investors yesterday that they should thank him for the rise in the stock market.  Apparently, Mnuchin didn’t read the memo that only trump can claim anything a success and all successes, of which there are none, are his alone.

We had Wilbur Ross declare that when trump announced that he was sending missiles against Syria, “we were just starting our desert.  It was even better than after-dinner entertainment.  And, it didn’t cost anything”.  So, the Commerce Secretary thinks that launching missiles is “after-dinner entertainment”.  And, according to him, everyone had a great laugh over it.  I can just imagine what a knee-slapper it will be if we attack North Korea.

Then we have Rep. Brooks who is defending the Americans Without Health Care Act.  He said he supports the idea that states can opt out of the “pre-existing” protections under the ACA.  He said that way “people who live the right way and are not sick don’t have to support those who are sick.”  He thinks that insurance companies have the right to charge people with pre-existing conditions more than others.

Just one problem with his argument.  Everyone with pre-existing conditions are not sick because they didn’t “live right” or “do the right things”.   Using his argument, my grandson who has autism must have done something “not right” because he suffers from this terrible disease.  Only, he was two years old when he was diagnosed, so what could he have possibly done “wrong”?

Brooks showed us that he has no clue what he is talking about.  He has shown us that the only thing that matters to him is the profits of the insurance companies and not the health of the people of this country.  It falls right in place with the trumpian and Republican mantra that if you are poor, you are not in “god’s favor”.  If you are sick it is because you have not “lived right”.  If you are not rich, you are to blame for all ills facing our country.

But, not to be outdone, beloved leader had to also weigh in on the pre-existing condition aspect of health .  In the process, he showed us that he has no idea of what is in the bill he is supporting and hoping his Republican Politburo will pass for him this week.  In that same CBS interview, he claimed that pre-existing conditions “will be protected.  I mandated that it be in the bill”.  Only, it isn’t in the bill.

What is in the bill is that states can opt out of that part of insurance and charge people with pre-existing conditions astronomical premiums to get coverage.  Also in the bill is a sections that says states can opt out of the “essential coverage” portion as well.  Meaning states could declare that maternity health coverage need not be part of insurance plans.  Or for that matter, they can exclude cancer treatment.  All in the name of saving insurance companies money.

The problem is trump either doesn’t know what is in his Americans Without Health Care Act, or he simply doesn’t care and is lying.  With beloved leader, it is impossible to tell which one it is.  But, it really doesn’t matter since according to his own words “I don’t stand by anything”.

Then to prove his point about not standing by anything he also said that he thinks our Constitution, you know the paper that conservatives always point to when they want to deny people benefits or civil rights, is “archaic”.   There are to parts of the Constitution that really annoy him.  The first is the separation of powers.  He believes that if he submits any idea or bill to Congress, they should simply pass it without question.

The slowness of Congress is really getting on his nerves.  Actual debate on legislation is a bad thing according to beloved leader.  Not that the Americans Without Health Care Act was ever debated on the floor of either House of Congress.  It is just the idea that he has to wait for Congress to make his “agenda” the law that annoys him.

The other thing that really gets under his skin is that very annoying thing called the First Amendment.  Who the hell ever came up with that one?  Why would anyone want to let the people and the press have the right of free speech?  What the hell were our founding fathers thinking?

One thing that trump really wants is to bully our press by making it easier to sue them for articles that they publish that he doesn’t like.  Even his Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus believes the same thing.  He said that they “were looking at that” matter and believes that it should be easier to sue the press for stories that they say are false.  They believe that if a news story is about something like, oh I don’t know, evidence surfacing about the Russian Hacking and possible collusion with the trump campaign, they should be able to sue the press organization that dares to bring that to light.

The major hurdle in their plan, is that they either have to change or eliminate the First Amendment to the Constitution.  But, they don’t think that is a real problem since trump called it archaic anyway.  Republicans and especially trump think he should have the last say on what is real, what is fake, and what should be published.  If the people don’t like that, too bad.

I hate to say this, but if anyone out there is still willing to give trump the benefit of the doubt, you are either kidding yourself, or you would prefer to see the end of our country as we know it.  Beloved leader has told us many times that “I am a very smart man”.  Well moron, being a smart man means you have to be at least smarter than a fourth grader.  Using that simple definition, you till fail!

If this kind of behavior continues, what are we supposed to expect in the coming months.  Will trump actually try to destroy our democracy to establish his monarchy?  I say monarchy because he obviously believes his family should run the country by itself.  Will we see a Reichstag incident in this country like we saw in Germany?

If people are still willing to swallow the bullshit that trump throws at us everyday, then the possibility of that happening grows every day.  A dictator cannot take control without the help of the people of the country.  Which is why the resistance movement cannot end.  It must endure and it must keep us aware of the stupidity of what our beloved leader does.

Sorry, but I gave 20 years of my life in service to my country.  I served because I chose to do so.  I served that long because I believed in our country and our values.  I believed in our democracy and our people.  What has been going on since trump became president is not the country or the values I served to defend.  I will not blindly go along with this clown.  Ignorance is no excuse.

And, the shirts keep marching along.

Day 171. 

The first 100 days of beloved leader’s presidency are finally over.  In those 100 days about the only thing we learned about beloved leader is that he is a total clown with no idea of what the hell he is doing.

The three main items about trump we have learned are Bluster, Incompetence, and Complete Ignorance.  If those are his three main traits, we are all in deep shit.  Included in those three traits is one more.  He is an absolute lousy negotiator.  He couldn’t negotiate his way out of a men’s room.

But, don’t just take my word for it, look at each trait individually.  The day after his inauguration, he complained that no one was giving him credit for “having the largest crowd in history at my inauguration”.  Photographs of his inauguration proved otherwise, but what the hell, he believed it so we should.

Just last night at a rally in Harrisburg, PA he bragged that the crowd set an “all-time record for the arena and that there are thousands of people standing outside who couldn’t get in”.  Only photographs showed the arena was not at capacity.  It holds about 7,000 people, and photographs from the event show about 15 percent of the seats were empty.

Look, there was a large crowd there.  They were even loud and supportive of beloved leader.  But, his bluster couldn’t allow that to come out, he had to openly lie to the people in the arena who could see it was not full.  Yet, they still cheered him and agreed with him.  I guess the arena was never full for any event in its history.  If that is true, then he was right when he said it was an all-time record setter.  If that is not true, then neither is his comment.

He loudly tells us that he is for the “little people”.  But, his first executive order was to increase the cost of mortgage insurance for first-time home buyers making it harder for them to get the mortgage they need.  I am sure all first-time home buyers are thanking him for his support every time they write their mortgage checks out costing them $500 per year more than if he had not signed that stupid order.

Then he allows his EPA chief to let Dow Chemical’s pesticide that affects the development of brains in children and fetus’ to be used on food crops.  This pesticide was banned from food crops under the last administration, but who cares if you child’s brain developes like it should.  Dow Chemical’s profits are far more important than your children’s development.

The EPA has also taken down all of the information about climate change from its website.  It thinks that there is no such thing as climate change so why bother with putting up all of that scientific information that shows they are wrong.

Then under his incompetence, we only need to look at all of the vacancies in the Federal Government.  Of the roughly 459 positions he is required to fill, less than 60 of them have been filled.  There aren’t even any nominations announced for the remaining vacancies.

Additionally, his empty suit Rex Tillerson said that he expects to lay off over 2,000 state department employees.  Beloved leader apparently doesn’t believe that an active state department with real professionals can stop wars.  Which is exactly what their job is.  As whimpering dog Mattis over at Defense actually said “if we don’t have an active State Department, I will need a lot more bullets”.  Even whimpering dog knows we need a State Department that engages with the world.

During his time in office, our beloved leader has managed to piss off our allies like Germany, England, France, Canada, and even Australia.  All the while he is praising the murderer Putin for being a “great leader” as trump likes to call him.

He and his administration told the American People that “we are sending a great armada to the South China sea to show North Korea we mean business”.  Only, that “great armada” was actually heading for exercises with the Australian Navy thousands of miles south of the South China Sea.  The Commander-in-Chief and his whimpering dog Mattis didn’t even know where his fleet was or what they were doing.

Mattis even told us that they made the announcement because the exercise was cancelled so they had to give a reason for cancelling it.  Only, it wasn’t cancelled, and the Vinson and her fleet didn’t head towards Korea until it was over.  How incompetent can you be?

In Syria, his administration said they didn’t mind that Bashaad was in power and that it was up to the Syrian people to decide if they should get rid of him.  Then, Bashaad used chemical weapons on his own people.  So, trump launched a handful of missiles at one of Bashaad’s air bases with very limited results and bragged about being “presidential” over the incident.  He claimed that he had to send the missiles because of the pictures of all of those “beautiful babies” he saw being gassed.  Yet, he won’t let any of those “beautiful babies” to come here to get away from the war.

Then we get to his total ignorance.  We have been staring down North Korea for about 70 years.  Beloved leader seems to want to draw another “red line” in the sand over North Korea.

North Korea has artillery aimed at and in range of Seoul where about half of South Korea’s population lives.  So, in order to show we mean business again, he ordered that a missile defense system be installed in South Korea.  Sounds reasonable especially considering we have over 30,000 troops stationed in South Korea.

Then, he fell back on his gangster mode and claimed that he told South Korea that they should really pay for the missile defense system.  He seems to have left out the part where he would pull it out if they didn’t pay, but the possibility remains loudly in the minds of the South Korean people.

Then, to make matters even worse, he said he would tear up the trade agreement we have with South Korea.  This ignoramus doesn’t understand just how bad he is making relations with one of our best allies.  Does he really think that the South Koreans will be so “strong” in supporting our moves against North Korea if he is going to “tear up” our trade agreements with the South?

Additionally, there are Presidential elections going on in South Korea since their last President was removed from office over corruption charges.  Does he really believe that the winner will be the one who calls out the name trump as a “great leader”?  Rather, it would appear that the winner will be the one who defies and distances themselves from trump the most.  Boy, isn’t that a smart way to win friends.

But, let’s be fair.  He has accomplished a lot in his first 100 days.  He failed to get his Americans Without Health Insurance Act passed because he is a lousy negotiator.  That is a positive for the country.

He was able to get his nomination to the Supreme Court approved.  Of course, his patsy Mitch McConnell had to change Senate rules to achieve that, so it really doesn’t count as a “victory” to me.

He has made “town hall meetings” for his party members almost unbearable.  As a matter of fact, many of his party’s members won’t even hold town halls anymore because they are afraid to face angry crowds.

He has placed a gag order on the employees at EPA so you can never find out about the real effects of climate change or the “sweetheart deals” that Pruitt is making with the fossil fuel companies.

He has removed worker protections from companies who do business with the government.  So if a contractor is guilty of sexual harassment, unequal pay for women, or has a horrible safety record, we won’t know about them and they will get to keep their contracts.

He hired, and then was forced to fire, an unregistered foreign agent to be his National Security Advisor.  Before he was fired, Flynn sat in on highly classified briefings even on briefings that were about the countries for which he was an unregistered foreign agent.

A total of 15 people of his administration have either been fired, resigned, or withdrew their names from consideration for high level posts.  That surely is a record for a president in his first 100 days.  And, we all know how much he loves records.

He has signed more executive orders in his first 100 days than any other president since World War II.  Remember when Republicans claimed that executive orders were nothing more than “a political overreach that flew against the Constitution”?  Funny, we don’t hear the same thing from them now that beloved leader is using executive orders instead of actual legislation.

Finally, he has managed to become the first president who is the subject of a counter espionage investigation concerning his campaign’s collusion with Russia in hacking our national elections.  He managed that in his first 100 days.

All of this shows that we probably have the biggest asshole sitting in the White House in our nation’s history.  The only thing he hasn’t done, yet, is follow his hero Andrew Jackson’s lead who tried make the east coast all white by shipping out all of the Native Americans who lived there.  Only, trump will ship out all Mexicans and Muslims instead of Native Americans.

He has named a fossil fuel company puppet as the head of the EPA.  He has named a public education hater to head up the Department of Education.  He has named an openly proud racist as our Attorney General.  He has placed former Goldman Sachs heads in positions to run our budgets and finances.  You know the company that was the lead in destroying the economy in 2008.

He named a person to head up the Department of Energy who doesn’t even know what the department does, and wants to “get rid of it” anyway.  He fired every District Attorney and has yet to fill one of those vacancies.

He gave a speech about not “tolerating anti-Semitism” in our country, but won’t name one White Supremacist or Neo-Nazi group as domestic terrorists.  Of course these groups all say they are acting as real Christians.  As he liked to say during the campaign, “our president won’t even say the term domestic Christian terrorist”.

The first 100 days of beloved leaders’ administration are finally over.  I won’t blame you if you think it has felt more like 100 years instead of days.  We are saddled with a do-nothing blusterous, incompetent, ignorant idiot in the White House.  Every time he gives a speech using his tele-prompter, I get the feeling I am listening to a first grader reading “see   spot   run”.

That is what we have learned about trump during the first 100 days.   The only question left is will we even have a country left by the 2018 elections?  Considering the first 100 days, that is a reasonable question to ask.

And, the shirts keep marching along.
