Way to go and infinite thanks to 67% of New Jersey voters to finally end their prohibition of the personal use and commercial distribution of marijuana!! And just like the Giants and Jets, this is as much a provincial claim and shared victory for New York City and State citizens too.
There’s already reactionary bellyaching to this, with certain rigid folks harping about how there isn’t enough local supply to be sold commercially and communities will not approve a store in their towns which is just fearmongering about dealers selling out in the open with impunity. But the referendum shows that there’s no impunity anymore. As for supply, surely the overwhelming demand for the ganja will instantly fulfill that in a matter of months. It’s also doubtful that with 67% of voters raising their voice for common sense distribution, pretty sure a bulk of them are from those communities and even the most conservative folks might not even notice quality strains being sold from the nearby CVS store.
New Jersey isn’t the only one that has embraced the effects of the high, budgetary potential of money that will be flowing in to their state coffers that is. Red States Arizona, North Dakota and Montana voters also passed referendums on recreational pot legalization, illustrating that they have more common sense and are more progressive than Blue State Governor Cuomo, who could have easily legalized pot with a stroke of his pen during the last big ugly budget that he unilaterally controlled via the executive power the Senate and Assembly gave him weeks before when the pandemic started in New York.
Apparently, Cuomo the Narc would rather have the state continue to make money jailing people for pot than getting more money from the taxes from the sales of pot from those same consumers. But that doesn’t mean shit anymore, now instead of risking arrest for buying or smoking pot on the streets of NYC, buying sweet buds and smoking them are now a short convenient car, or PATH bus and subway train ride away!
Sure you can bring the kind back to the city, possession is legal even though smoking it is not but there are still plenty of spots to spark up with impunity. But thanks to Jersey, the hope is still alive that pot will finally be as legal as booze again, because Cuomo has to run for re-election and once he sees the surplus coming in from state wide pot sales over the Hudson, the megalomaniac governor will have to hold on to his ego and sign an E.O. for weed’s inevitable liberation, especially if he wants to win re-election again.
So thanks again to New Jersey and also Arizona, Montana and South Dakota for blazing the freedom trail to blaze joints and blunts and hitting pipes and bongs and ensuring that personal liberties still matter and will make America truly great and mighty high again.
“The only thing we have to fear is, fear itself”
Franklin Delanor Roosevelt
Four years after he announced that he alone can fix America; with his 50,740th tweet it sure looks like Donald John Trump has finally gave in to Fear Itself. Because now that he thinks COVID-19 is some kind of super villain terror kingpin or an omniscient and omnipresent entity.
Although the latter is surely apt, because the Invisible Enemy is sure acting like a vengeful God that is constantly brought up and used as a cudgel by the President’s evangelical monetary backers.
President Donald J. Trump tweeted that message above on Easter Sunday, the day of the alleged resurrection of Jesus H. Christ. The day he proclaimed/decreed to a perplexed Fox News Channel reporter that life, society and the economy will return to normal even in the face of thousands of people getting infected, hospitalized and near death’s door and succumbing to the contagion. Hard to tell if President Trump thought that Jesus was going to rappel from the open sky, take the nails off his hands and slay COVID-19 with them, but his cabinet and advisers had to break the bad news to him that his irrational optimism is no match for the pandemic, leading him to responsibly decree that every state was now a disaster area and everything had to shut down and people had to modify their routines and habits revolving around the virus.
In the few weeks since making America Disasterland, deaths brought on by COVID-19 grew into the thousands, none most devastatingly more than in Trump’s home state of New York.
It really is confounding how that being a college educated, successful (but dishonest) businessman whose net worth is alleged to be billions of dollars and convinced almost half of America to put him in the White House would immensely fuck up the response to the nascent outbreak of COVID-19’s rapid spread that led to this national disaster and economic purgatory existence. Although it shouldn’t be that hard to break down. Trump is by all means a simple kinda man.
Now granted the President is not entirely to blame but he sure is responsible despite his flippant denial. After the disease hit Wuhan suddenly sickening tens of thousands and killing over a thousand people in just a few weeks and turned the province into a ghost town, which led to the Center of Disease Control to issue the first serious warning about coronavirus.
But what’s perplexing is that Trump has at his disposal and under his command a vast network of intelligence agencies keeping track of every environmental and sociopolitical event around the world. We got the CIA, NSC, DOI, DARPA and a vast military apparatus to help monitor these agencies. And one of them was the National Center of Medical Intelligence, who were monitoring this contagion way back in November 2019. And it’s most certain that there was a Presidential Daily Brief that collaborated this looming threat from an Invisible Enemy just as there was when a PDB was written up detailing a terrorist determined to strike the United States back in 2001.
But it appears in retrospect that President Trump took the same approach with the reports from China as President W Bush took when he got the PDB on his ranch in Texas a month before the attacks on 9/11/01. Because around the time this report was made, Trump still golfed and held campaign rallies. (If he even got the PDB at all, knowing that a “steady state” exists in the White House)
Then it came to America literally from coast to coast when a nursing home in a small town in Washington led to a spate of elderly residents dying at once and then the next confirmed case popped up in a tiny suburb above the Bronx named New Rochelle when a lawyer contracted the virus. And then passengers on a cruise ship suddenly got infected with coronavirus as it was heading back to shore
As news was spreading about COVID-19’s threat to the U.S a, around this time Trump was not that worried and neither was the World Health Organization, for they both were getting dishonest reports of how the contagion spreads from the government of China who were doing their usual obfuscations and micromanagement of information. Trump then banned all flights from China, then Iran and South Korea and enacted another travel ban at Europe which led to a mass exodus from that continent causing mass clusters of travelers at airlines trying to get back to America.
Then the short month of February came and following these proactive measures, Trump decided to rest on his laurels and showed good composure as he reassured the nation he had the virus contained and controlled and determined that it was going to go away really really soon after he called it a partisan hoax, continuing his well reputed brand of complacent optimism with golfing and entertaining his base with more rallies as the 29 days flew by and cases in the U.S. started to swell including another case in NYC, the president continued golfing and kept repeating his narrative that COVID-19 was “under control”.
It was under control, but not the Invisible Enemy just the dissemination of information about it’s genesis in the U.S. A doctor from Washington who was frustrated at the bueraucratic bullshit going on with the CDC after they distributed shitty COVID-19 tests decided to break protocol and draw up a test on a teenage male who showed symptoms and was discovered positive and then she and her colleagues proceeded to do testing around their area themselves. Then the feds clamped down on her and Trump continued spout diarrhetic falsehoods from his faceanus.
Then the COVID-19 ides of March came crashing down on Trump as the invisible enemy spread across the land as people started dying. Then the W.H.O. finally declared the contagion as a threat to the world. As is wont with Trump when things go awry, he succumbed to repetitive and outlandish statements (and also a quick round of golf) and finally declared a national emergency on March 13. And is wont with Trump he succumbs to spewing falsehoods, ludicrous retrospection and self-contradiction claiming he knew it was a pandemic from the start yet no one knew it was coming. This he said just minutes apart from each other.
What a fucking imbecile.
Expectedly and ultimately as is wont with Trump, he did not preemptively or thoroughly prepare for the novel virus and made some dumbass decisions that truly exacerbated it. Like when he hired John Bolton to run the National Security Council. While the warmonger was machinating regime change invasion plans against Syria and Venezuela, Bolton decided to eliminate the NSC office’s pandemic response team. To think that when Trump was assembling his cabinet after beating Hillary, he didn’t want to hire Bolton because he didn’t like his mustache. Should have went with his first instinct.
And as it’s become apparent now that America is the biggest disseminator of COVID-19 in the world right now, Trump didn’t have a sufficient federal national stockpile of testing kits, ventilators and PPE supplies in case states ran out of them with the rapid amount of positive cases that rose immensely in a few weeks time after he boisterously lied that tests and medical supplies will be available and will save everyone.
But what makes Trump’s horrendous non-response that has resulted in thousands of fatalities in the country he thought he could fix by himself is how miserly he has been with the national stockpile which was scarce to begin with.
Trump then commissioned his COVID-19 task force team and assigned VP Mike “Pontius Pilate” Pence to supervise it, despite having zero medical expertise but his reliance on prayers and heavenly wish fulfillment from an Invisible Man In The Sky falls in line with Trump’s fatal brand of optimism. The president did do the right thing and invoked the Defense Production Act to get corporations to produce PPE’s as hospitals were running out and nurses and doctors were contracting the diseases while rewashing their masks and wearing garbage bags to protect themselves. But he’s only sparingly invoked it and did not authorize it. If it was authorized, companies could have mass produced masks, gloves, scrubs, ventilators and put out quality COVID-19 tests instead of the shitty ones they made that a doctor had maybe thousands of lives could have been saved. But that would have been an acceptance of socialism and Trump and the billionaires that own this plutocracy don’t want that.
Trump’s barely significant invocations contributed to thousands of more citizens getting infected and spreading the disease while unaware (since COVID-19 acts as a sleeper cell in asymptomatic people) so he can meander and then bestow the pandemic response to his co-advisor, son-in-law and lost boy oligarch vampire Jared Kushner and his bolier room styled COVID-19 task force he assembled to manage the dwindling and mass production of the federal stockpile that is dependent of the president’s methodical and moody very strong invoking.
Few days later after thousands of more deaths starting piling up and markedly in the epidemic’s epicenter of Trump’s childhood borough in Queens and state of New York, Jared admonished governor’s demands to save the lives of their constituents, doctors, nurses, government service and essential workers, claiming that the federal stockpile does not belong to them and suggested using innovation to acquire the PPE’s they need. Then Trump administration had to get their data beavers and remix the CDC website to reflect Jared’s heinous gaffe.
What Jared and Trump are with their stingy distribution of the emergency federal stockpile so desperately needed to states especially regarding the pandemic’s epicenter of New York is similar to the slumlord behavior and tactics they adminstered with their apartment building portfolios when they wanted to get rent-stabilized tenants out of their buildings by denying them basic services like heat, water and power and repairs.
But the reason why they are doing these dastardly things that are costing hundreds of lives daily is because the Chamber of Commerce is vociferously against nationalizing companies to produce life saving equipment, which is why Trump is only “invoking” DPA in increments.
Amid the presentnational emergency, compelling industry to undertake massive changes to global production chains would be damaging. (Emphasis theirs)
The EO is seeks to impose major changes on critical industries in the midst of a public health crisis. The ability of businessesto move quickly to “repatriate supply chains”at a time when many businessfunctions are shut down isclose to nil.
While some sectors may be able to boost production of relatively simple products domestically on an emergency basis, forcing industries with complex value chains to shift suddenly is a different matter.
Additionally, at a time when U.S. andglobal financial markets are under tremendous strain, movesby the world’s largest economy to break it trade agreement commitments would send the wrong signal to markets and add to the present financial uncertainty.
Somehow, this Chamber of Commerce’s pernicious and predominant influence on the budgetary and now emergency decisions for America and Americans has barely got any attention on the endless coverage COVID19 porn that’s on corporate news televised and social media and it might be because corporations like Google and Nike are on the COC board. Because of this callous and diabolical machinating, PPE’s are being manufactured and dispensed as luxury products going for ossified prices to the highest bidder. It doesn’t help that COVID-19 tests went to celebrities and pro athletes as well as corporate executives and elected offcials first.
And now the President of Disasterland had to do something he always fought tooth and nail to avoid doing when he screwed over his contractors and clients that built his empire, he had to pay back the nation he was elected to lead for fucking it up. Like his disastrous Taj Mahal casino quagmire in Atlantic City, Trump’s negligence since the start of 2020 as coronavirus was creeping across the planet has put America in economic purgatory, as 26 million citizens are forcing themselves to stay home with the exception of the newly branded “essential workers” and waiting for unemployment insurance and thousands of REAL small businesses have to shut down if they are not deemed “essential”. This led to the massively inequitable 6 trillion dollar CARES stimulus act proving more oligarch welfare and a class action settlement one time pittance payment of $1200 for the working class as they scrounge their savings to pay their rent and creditors until the states “reopen for business”.
But don’t worry nation because the President isn’t. Hell, he has always operated and conducted himself by not giving a fuck. He continues to harangue the press with his fake news refrain and continues to make outlandish statements, comments and suggestions like his current batty remedy of injecting bleach and applying sunlight to prevent coronavirus from spreading. The latter he described as if the sun was like IcyHot.
And now the psycho President is trying to get the nation back to work although sounding less tyrannical than he did not long ago when he was channeling Mussolini by claiming “total authority”, which he didn’t recognize when the Chamber Of Commerce was telling him to back off the DPA order. Although as is wont of Trump, his proclivity for administering authority by contradiction gets worse as he tells his constituency to abide by coronavirus protocols then goes on twitter with exhortations to his base to embrace insurgency and liberate themselves from the states implementing his own disaster declaration order.
As if all that including hundreds of deaths piling up daily from the contagion and coming up with more trillions for more stimulus bills to bail out America and more importantly to Trump his re-election, we still got to spend another trillion or two for essential regimes to change and a new cold war to fight.
But at least now everyone will have access to a swab after 3 fucking months as the disease spread, now revealed to have started here around January, as Pontius Pence recently announced that five million citizens got the COVID-19 tests as a harbinger of hope to get the nation’s economy up and running again.
And we will. It’s just another 317 million more citizens to go.
Then after that, while wearing cheap masks, rubber gloves and standing six feet apart as we do our collective daily grind to keep the capitalist system thriving making modest wages and making billionaires even richer, we collectively as a country will pull together to help President Trump Make Disasterland Great Again.
It keeps happening…

In Chinatown, a mentally ill homicidal homeless man bludgeoned five other homeless men by hitting them with a 15 pound fence metal pipe, killing four of them and critically injuring one as they roughly slept in front of closed storefronts in the mayor’s quote unquote safest big city in America. The victims were aged from 46 to 83.
The mass murderer wound up on the streets when his mother kicked him out for assaulting her and has 14 prior arrests, including other assaults on his fellow homeless. Despite this record of mayhem, he was able to get back on the streets when a non-profit paid his bail after he served a month in jail for his arrests of groping a woman at a homeless shelter and fare evasion after he got picked up by cops by missing his court hearings. Following these bad judgements by a careless charity group and a Brooklyn judge, the psycho killer took shelter and squatted in an abandonded house next to his mother’s house in the Bronx.
Following this massacre, Mayor Big Slow de Blasio promised to send more cops, DHS outreach aides and some simps from his wife Chirlie’s scandalous money purging Thrive NYC mental health program to bring some help to the street dwelling city refugees.

Ever since this was started seventeen years ago, the lights would usually go on a few days before and a few days after 9/11. Recently this was pointed out by two local journalists a few days ago on in a brief discussion on social media by the NY Post’s Nicole Genaris and the Wall St. Journal’s Katie Honan. Which got me to thinking especially since this day doesn’t seem to be garnering much remembrance anymore in my opinion. Especially with the way corporate news is covering it now, which is coming off in an obligatory fashion (speaking of fashion, the fashion industry holds it annual galas and designer shows on the week of this tragic day).
So I propose that maybe these lights could be lit for other tragic anniversaries that made the attack on 9/11 possible. Like lighting the tribute on August 6. The day when George W. Bush received his Presidential Daily Brief about Bin Laden’s determination to attack America.
And also lighting it up for the horrendous decisions and policies of the national tragedy’s aftermath that continue to kill civil service workers. Like on September 13 2001, when George W. Bush’s EPA commissioner Christie Todd Whitman announced that the air quality was safe to breathe in Ground Zero, even though the air downtown was still thick and acrid with visible residue. This lethal falsehood has led to the slow deaths of hundreds of firefighters and police men and women. Which still continues to this day.
The light tribute should also commemorate the date October 26, 2001 with the ratification of the Patriot Act; written by frightened and calculating congress members under the rubric to protect the nation from terrorism but wound up eviscerating the first and fourth amendment rights of American citizens, which is what also what Osama Bin Laden set out to do. This abominable legislation has led to crackdowns and clampdowns of protests and the assembling of them by citizens. And also to wanton abuse of needle in the haystack searches of everyone’s personal phone and internet data records by federal agencies, notably the NSA which Edward Snowden exposed only a few years ago.Thanks to the Patriot act, which the majority of congressional officials didn’t even get a chance to finish reading but still voted for it except for Barbara Lee of California, unpermitted personal data usurpation has become normalized and is the business model of the notorious tech corporations Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter.
That’s what this day means now. And thousands of Americans and millions of lives in the Middle East and Africa through regime change and proxy wars to prevent terror have been sacrificed in the name of homeland security. While the lights are a solemn reminder to everyone whose relatives unnecessarily died that day, the lessons of 9/11 still have not been learned, as we are told we are still under threat almost 2 decades on.
And in another awful post 9/11 consequence, turns out the tribute of light is also a problem:
The illuminating installation on display for seven days leading up the anniversary of the hijacked airliner attacks that brought down the two World Trade Center towers, killing nearly 3,000 people, may serve as solemn beacons of remembrance for most people. The illuminating installation on display for seven days leading up the anniversary of the hijacked airliner attacks that brought down the two World Trade Center towers, killing nearly 3,000 people, may serve as solemn beacons of remembrance for most people.
But the exhibit also coincides with the annual migration of tens of thousands of birds crisscrossing the New York region — including songbirds, Canada and yellow warblers, American redstarts, sparrows and other avian species — that get confused and fly into the towers of light, circling and expending energy and threatening their lives, according to officials at New York City Audubon.

Andrew Maas, a spokesman for NYC Audubon, told ABC News on Tuesday that the artificial light interferes with the birds’ natural cues to navigate. Circling within the lights can exhaust the birds and potentially lead to their demise, he noted.
“We know it’s a sensitive issue,” he said, adding that NYC Audubon has worked for years with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and the Municipal Art Society of New York, which created the exhibit, to balance protecting the birds while providing the temporary memorial.
We will never forget 9/11. But it’s interesting how much we, meaning our appointed leaders and corporations, will fuck it all up trying to get everybody not to forget.
Trump fondling Old Glory. Both in distress.
With 2 years of being President, in name and elected position only, Donald John Trump has seen his administration, policies and himself go through wild twists and turns, leaving a trail of domestic and societal wreckage that is still being spread with every signature, demented and illiterate tweets and words coming out his face anus.
What must have started off swell for him at the spring equinox, with the resignations of Homeland Security Secretary H.R. McMaster, Chief Economic Advisor Gary Cohn and Secretary Of State Rex Tillerson from his plutocabinet, ridding Trump of dissenting but sage advice on how to run the nation like an adult (an adult that’s redirecting wealth to the top 1%) and maintaining economic parity and some version of peace with our European allies has now devolved into a daily wrestling chair/ladder/table cage match show.
…and then along came Stormy.
Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah
Stormy Daniels, a voluptuous smokin’ hot woman and award-winning porn star actress who engaged in brief coitus on a boat with the President, led Trump to summon his devoted lawyer and patsy Michael Cohen to pay her $130,000 to keep quiet about the one-night stand and helped suppressed an interview she made with a celebrity tabloid magazine with it’s principal owner and CEO David Pecker, which all took place one month before Election Day 2016. But the payment was made through shady channels. When asked by reporters about this as he was about to enter a cabin on Air Force One, it may have been the first time in recorded history that Donald actually was stumped and conveyed a paralyzing fear.
Since this made worldwide news, the Donald has been leading his country and conducting himself like a megalomaniacal hyperactive 300 pound gorilla with explosive diarrhea in the White House, throwing his shitty policies all over the walls and seeing what sticks, as a chunk of his plutocabinet bailed on him along with two of his personal attorneys, along with his post-election day firing of Jefferson Sessions, who the President always thought of as his own personal attorney.
As for his long-time personal lawyer, days after it was exposed of Cohen and Trump’s little collusion to shut down a salacious story by concocting a fake ass LLC and lame ass alias for Trump, David Dennison, to put a muzzle on Ms. Daniels and the immediate subsequent arrest and detainment of Cohen, it turns out he was also doing (actually yearning to do) some illicit lobbying through his shell company called Essential Consultants to get fat juicy tax payer funded contracts for Trump to dole out.
Now it turns out Cohen used his Essential Services LLC to financially muzzle a hot Playboy playmate from dishing about her sexual dalliance with Donny and also to pay off another Playboy model 2 million dollars about her affair with a major GOP fundraiser, using the aforementioned LLC and the same Dennison alias that was used for POTUS.
Now that all of Donnie’s sexual piccadillos and all the felonious cash laundering campaign law violating drama is clearly breaking his already addled brain, Trump, whilst implementing demented and doom-laden policy decisions had been making the rounds worldwide and embracing dictators with doe-eyed subservient zeal unfit for a man who has spent the first two years of his temp leadership role making outright and veiled threats on his social media feed.
But it isn’t like he’s become a different man. If there is a difference is that Trump is acting crazier than ever before and is actually showing outstanding vulnerabilities for a guy who has “great mental stability an is like a smart person” and who was once reputed to be according to a best selling autobiography, a deal artist. No, this is the same guy we (mostly everybody from New York City) have always known and this is the way he’s always operated.
A few news pieces surfaced that has practically defined Trump’s performance, agenda, and directives as the President. The first was by a senior staffer who described Trump’s tactics and directives in foreign policymaking as “We’re America, bitch!” and the second was the more pointed retrospective observation by Leslie Stahl during an interview in May when she interviewed Trump after he won the nomination of the party he permanently neutered about why he continues to viciously attack journalists.
STAHL: …he’s attacking the press. And there were no cameras, there was nothing going on. And I said, “You know, that is getting tired, why are you doing this? You’re doing it over and over and it’s boring, it’s time to end that, you’ve won the nomination, and why do you keep hammering at this?” And he said: “You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.”
This (not much of a) revelation shows that Donald John Trump has conducted and directed his presidency by the Shock Jock Doctrine. Not the delightful writer Naomi Klien’ landmark theory “The Shock Doctrine”, where the plotting and planning by insider politicos and their mercenary goons meticulously conquer and profit off of disasters, wars and coups, manipulating civic services and society as a whole. On the contrary, Trump’s “Shock Jock Doctrine” is what can be only discerned as the retarded version of it, as his policy and executive decisions do the same things but wind up with disastrous results on both the most vulnerable victims of them and eventually and humiliatingly towards the one individual, our executive in chief now known in New York’s criminal court system as Individual One, wielding them.
The Shock Jock Doctrine is inspired and defined by the syndicated radio and cable news talk show personalities of America: Hannity, Limbaugh, Savage, Alex Jones, the late Bill O’Riley etc. etc., men who spew extreme zealous polarizing opinions on how the government should be run. But Trump’s Shock Jock Doctrine more resembles Howard Stern, who Trump has mimicked his legendary format of crass insults and taking his oversexed radio theater objectifying and manhandling women to hedonistic power tripping levels, the latter no doubt verified by the pussy-grabbing claim he told Billy Bush 14 years ago.
But it also is glaringly affecting all his ill-thought foreign, domestic, immigration and economic policy decisions:
After writing his lie-positive polygraph signature on the executive order declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel, the opening of the new embassy offices there was marred by the psychotic gunning down of Palestinian protesters approaching the Gaza border while unarmed and also while they were in the midst of praying. The IDF snipers also shot a 21-year-old woman to death while she was identifying herself as a nurse trying to help the already wounded; one of the near 300 Palestinians killed and 29,000 injured during the year long protest.
While meeting with North Korean dictator Kim-Jong Un, Trump and the dictator seemed to agreed to a de-nuclearization deal. Following their historic meeting, Trump came away with bizarre impressions from Kim, marveling at what a stronghead he is and how his oppressed citizenry worships him and would like Americans to stand at attention whenever he or his image manifests somewhere, further cementing Trump’s deep seated admiration for autocratic tyrannical regimes. Since then, North Korea has continued to violate sanctions by ramping up their nuclear capabilities and naval logistic fuel shipments.
Then there’s Saudi Arabia, over a year after the weapons deal that was Trump’s first visit with a foreign nation which the Sauds have used to fuel their monstrous and sadistic attacks on Yemen, Amazon/Washington Post journalist Jamal Kashoggi was brutally murdered in the Saudi embassy. He was jumped by 15 men and was butchered alive from a physician severing his body with a bone saw. Following blatant falsehoods from the Saudi Royals about the slaughter which devolved from claiming that Kashoggi left thru a back door; then claiming that he fought with the 15 men inside; then finally admitting the murder as ordered by Crown Prince Bin Salaam, as pictures showing a hazmat cleanup crew team arriving at the embassy and footage showing one of the assassins wearing Kashoggi’s clothes impersonating him despite having hair and the victim being bald; President Trump veered just as wild as the Saudi Royal Killers manipulation of their self-investigation (which included brazenly sending a hazmat cleanup crew as it was getting international news attention and condemnation), first believing their cockamamie results and then finally and literally accepting the murder, stating how much they are needed because of lots of money and jobs are at stake because of the weapons deal (but more likely it’s the petrodollar and their investments in high-end real estate, the latter most definitely deriving from Donald’s own portfolio; most recently in the Hyatt Hotel and the former DC Post Office). Trump pulling the U.S.A. out of the U.N.’s human rights council makes his solidarity with these human rights violators and modern dictatorships and modern apartheid in the case of Israel
There is also his self-described beautiful but inflation driving and business and employee killing tariffs on foreign countries. Recently anointing himself as Tariffman, these tariffs (along with the Oligarch Welfare Tax Cut of 2017) have blown up the national debt another two trillion dollars.
But most of all, there is what’s going on at the Mexican border. Following Trump’s campaign launching vitriol of Mexican rapists and killers (and some good people) and his tirade about shithole countries and continuing Barack Obama’s cruel deportation and rendition policies; Trump’s administration took it to a sadistically higher levels with AG Sessions Zero Tolerance declaration. Breaking families apart by separating children from their parents and locking them in modern day interment camps in a vain attempt to discourage all migrants from coming to America. Making migrants eat food that’s against their religious beliefs. Making kids sleep on the floor with foil blankets; injecting them with pyschotropic drugs without their or their parents permission, constant verbal and physical abuse from guards. Having injuries and maladies left untreated. Thousands of kids subjected to constant transfers to other “shelters” from east to west of this nation and not keeping track of them. Putting babies and toddlers in what’s called “tender age” interment centers, which akin to describing and herding them like they were veal.
Howard Stern’s influence can also be felt in Donald Trump’s choosing of acquaintances. Donald also has his own “wack pack” consisting of visitors like Kid Rock, Kanye West and the My Pillow Guy. But it has extended to even his dismantled plutocabinet, with the exodus of D.C. reporter, pundit and insider reputed rational adults like Gary Cohn, H.R. McMaster and Rex Tillerson, the ones remaining are all dimwitted characters. Education Secretary Besty Devos, who doesn’t know shit about education; Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, another dunce who was fortunate enough to have relatives in banking to enrich himself; HUD and Energy Secretaries Ben Carson and Rick Perry, who are basically slackers letting their departments do nothing as public housing rots and fossil fuel, fracking and coal companies get awarded public park lands for more planet damaging extraction and young ward adviser Jared Kushner, who despite also personally profiting immensely from his non-divested business in his time in the White is being played and owned by our Israeli and Saudi allies as they continue their oppression of their nation’s people.
But the biggest tell and blowback from Howard’s influence on Stronghead Trump, is the crank call he got from Stuttering John Melendez who imitated accused and exonerated crooked N.J. Senator Bob Menendez to persuade Trump to go easy on immigrants and select a moderate pick for the vacant at the time Supreme Court seat.
This was perhaps the greatest crank call in history (this one was formerly the greatest) and would had a longer shelf life in corporate news and talk shows if it wasn’t for the 24-7 half-second attention span news cycles because of corporate social media. Ironically, what did fill the void was Trump’s own wack packer version of Stuttering John, his actual personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani popping up on occasion giving outlandish and even incriminating defenses of Trump with his claims that his client is incapable of collusion because he’s president and how he can pardon himself if he is ever charged. But Rudy’s biggest and funniest gaffe was when he proclaimed to the nation that the truth isn’t the truth, making even a hack like Chuck Todd openly mock the once person of the year on Meet The Press.
Apparently, Trump hired Rudy mostly to represent him to normalize his own habitual sociopathic lying and kill the concept of moral sense at the same time.
And now we come to Trump’s piece de resistance and genesis program for his reason to exist as President, his fucking wall. After sending troops and making orders to shoot migrants if they throw rocks (which is wholly inspired by his pal Bibi Nethanyahu’s and his IDF’s tactics to oppress Palestinians protesters) and a Supreme Court decision to terminate his unconstitutional asylum ban, the Stronghead has gone head on and shut down the government (with the exception of the military) to get 5.6 billion dollars to build a useless wall (or fence) made of either concrete or steel slats or whatever and making shocking analogies of the construction of the wall with the invention of the wheel (these are his quotes/tweets).
Stronghead’s stubborn persistence for the Trump Wall has led to parks being inundated with garbage and feces, SNAP benefits and public housing services being cut to the poorest Americans, and over 800,000 workers being denied their paychecks, notably to those responsible to protecting our borders which President Motherfucker keeps bitching about, the immigration offices where people are getting hearing to become citizens and TSA security officers in the nation’s airports, where the majority of immigrants (and alleged terrorists) are actually arriving in! Stronghead Trump’s Wall stand is undermining and sabotaging the secure borders he claims he wants to protect!
The Stronghead President as managed to endure and finish two years of his first term with the Shock Jock Doctrine, but he and it is about to be tested with a Democratic majority in the House which he has immediately undermined with his government shutdown for his stupid fucking wall but is partially ignited by a new crop of fiery representatives that are calling and writing up articles of impeachment and with a current investigation into his crooked business dealings in his Trump foundation in New York and with Robert Mueller getting another six months with his investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election (nothing there) and the influence on Trump’s campaign and policy making (very likely). And with three major cabinet positions filled with interim acting appointees and his NSA Advisor John Bolton discrediting Trump’s proclaimed Isis victory and promise to bring home thousands of troops by announcing that the troops are remaining indefinitely, it starting to look like there are machinations being made en route to persuade the Stronghead to resign and Mike Pence taking over the Presidency just in time for the State of the Union address in a few weeks.
Now Trump is about to go on national T.V. and address the nation that he is going to the border himself to make his case for his fucking wall. Who knows what is going to spew from his faceanus to justify the construction of it and the funding for it now. But that’s why we will all tune in. Because the reason why we used to listen to Shock Jocks like the King Of All Media and in the last 5 years President Trump is that we want to hear what crazy offensive shit he will say next. The distinction with the Stronghead is that we really don’t have any other choice and can’t change the station and our 4G cellphones.
Because his vulgarities have an effect on everyone and the state of the union and also has had a deleterious effect on our infrastructure too (which he still hasn’t paid any attention to since announcing last year for a trillion dollar plan to improve it), but not only on the roads and highways of America but on the proverbial high road. Because three years of talking shit, dispensing insults and veiled and directed threats, the high road has been condemned.
To be continued…
Like a sign of overcompensating for, you know, the signature gets hyuger every time he writes it.
Washington D.C., United States Of America Under Financial Totalitarianism
Lucy Van Pelt: I know how you feel about all this Christmas business, getting depressed and all that. It happens to me every year. I never get what I really want. I always get a lot of stupid toys or a bicycle or clothes or something like that.
Charlie Brown: What is it you want?
Lucy Van Pelt: Real estate.
It was written, rewritten and rewritten, then it was signed (wow was it signed), and it is done. The Oligarch Welfare Bill is now the unadulterated law of the land.
It was done with relative ease, since it didn’t even require a thorough reading by the establishment Republicans or the cooperation nor the presence of the establishment Democrats and Bernie Sanders in the final days of crafting this Piece Of Shit bill. All it took to barrel it through was to bribe Bob Corker by adding a last second provision tax break for pass through income via LLC’s, virtual company entities that work more like tools in making revenue in the business of real estate, which the retiring Senator accrued millions of dollars in while he has been a public servant.
It turned out the reason for Corky’s nay vote the last time was that this provision was not in the despicable bill’s house version and was added and authored by Utah’s Sen. Orrin Hatch, a man from the poor people and the chicken coop. So much for the senator taking a moral stand against Trump and massive deficits.
Senator Hatch was not only thinking of Corky and his aide, but himself and his wife and a posse of other GOP senators and house representatives with collectively millions of dollars accrued from real estate and equity holdings to profit immensely even more from the Oligarch Welfare Law (haven’t heard much reporting on how or which elected Democrat members will profit from their real estate holdings if they have them though). Including standout young’n house speaker Paul Ryan, who has been champing at the bit to get this bill created and ratified so the donors he sucks up to can now repatriate their massive tax avoiding wealth, collectively worth 3 trillion dollars, that have been trapped on their island shelters and lower taxed nations at the generous lower rate now instituted.
With all that hoarded money free at last, it can then flow through their LLC’s untouched by the Feds. Leading to more gentrification of the cities where they have invested properties in, which will cause more high end speculation. It will also kill small businesses like restaurants and bars, for LLC’s are also involved in dining and nightlife establishments too.
Now that their collaborated powerball winning legislation is now law, they are now (the only ones) celebrating. And since the Oligarch Welfare Law also includes massive tax breaks for alcohol distribution, they will surely doing shots with 100 year old scotch, bathing in 50 year old wine, and showering each other with the finest high end champagne.
The biggest winner is of course the elected and currently serving President (and his plutocabinet members). Continuing his lifelong streak since birth of privileged good fortune. And it’s a good thing too, since some of his branded properties have removed his ubiquitous name off of their buildings, which might have cost him quite a lot of cash (it’s the only evidence that he has divested from his businesses, by being forced to). With the passage and his ridiculous giant signature, which resembles a pathological liar’s lie detector chart pattern, ratifying it, the money will continue to flow through his world wide web of shell companies, ensuring and his billionaire status and a nice tax payer funded nest egg for his next of kin and their next of kin.
As for everyone else, the first year might be fine if you don’t own a home in New York, New Jersey or California, with the doubling of the standard deduction, but all those minor token tax cuts come to a screeching halt in a little less than a decade to justify the exorbitant costs of Oligarch Welfare Law, which with all the speculation on how it will make up for the 6 trillion dollars with all of the cash concentrated for the top earners by happenstance does not account the costs of future military conflicts or the catastrophic effects from hurricanes, sea level rise and land erosion and the long promised trillion dollar infrastructure plan Trump touted days after the white power siege of Charlottesville, will effect the nation’s budget in the next 5 years as these cuts get bigger for the top. Maybe the reason why they have not ended DACA is because, well, they need those kids to contribute to the redistribution of wealth with their weekly paychecks when they become adults. Maybe that will put a stop to build the new Wall Of Mexico (Nah).
So once you get your returns in 2019, don’t spend it too fast. Hell, don’t spend it at all if you are able to avoid sickness or injury, or from a climate disaster, no matter how impossible it is. For it’s the same logic that the avaricious, self-serving and donor-serving members of Congress utilized to craft this odious, rancid law. And they are not even done, for they are now concocting their B plan to fund it if these tax cuts cost the nation’s budget to implode. In fact this plan was implemented 2 weeks before they wrote the bill, knowing full well they won’t have the funds, current and speculative to finance them.
Republican lawmakers are preparing plans to restructure America’s welfare system, including putting new limits on who’s eligible for anti-poverty programs such as food stamps and housing benefits.
The details of the planned overhaul are still being determined, but congressional Republicans have already introduced policy proposals that would impose new work requirements on some of America’s welfare programs. Last year, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Tex.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) unveiled a poverty plan as part of Ryan’s “A Better Way” agenda, which also called for the imposition of new work requirements.
The plans at the time were largely markers of future intention, signaling the party’s vision but not indicative of an imminent push for legislative action.
Something tells me this is going to take some filibustering from the Dems to nip this and kill this in the bud if they have the spine (nah.) Extreme filibustering.
Figurehead Trump did not even wait to sign this. In all certainty he also didn’t fucking read it. In his golden ukelele string maned covered head, he wanted to fulfill his promise to sign the bill before Christmas. The thing is of course that the promise he was most concerned about, after all the other failed ones regarding immigration and travel bans, was the promise to enhance his personal wealth. This is the fleshed out, current reality based adaptation of Dickens’ Christmas Carol, except that Scrooge sleeps through the four ghosts that invade his dreams and continues hoarding his wealth siphoned from the masses. As the timid elected Democrats, collectively resembling the meek assistant Ratchett, let him get away with this shit without true assertion and protest.
So forget about any Christmas cheer and gift giving in the lower and middle classes in the near future. Don’t want to forget those that yearn for higher education. For we have to pay their fair share now and our children and their paychecks are the future. Extreme fair share. Hopefully us proles will be able to hoard our money as well as the higher society populace of corporate executives, shareholders and of course our chosen members of legislative and executive public service did.
With god on their side, Speaker Ryan and Senator McConnell in a moment of solemn praise for growing wealth disparity. Say your prayers, nation and society.
Washington D.C., The Cesspool By The Potomac, U.S.A.
“The city of Washington was built on a stagnant swamp some 200 years ago, and very little has changed. It stank then, and it stinks now. Only today, it is the fetid stench of corruption that hangs in the air”
“Cash rules everything around me, CREAM get the money, dollar dollar bill y’all”
The “Tax Cut and Jobs Act”, this abominable bill to further continue the repatriation of wealth that has been going on for over 30 years is a virtual death sentence and double taxation on the citizenry of this nation. Unless anyone in the middle and lower classes wins the state lottery or avoids injury or sickness, in 10 years they will be more responsible maintaining the solvency of this country and it’s budget than all the greedy misers it is solidly ascertained to benefit.
This is a budget plan for corporate and inheritance welfare that no one is confident in. No one that counts anyway according to the Senate leader, House speaker, Figurehead Trump and his plutocabinet, which consists of the Tax Policy Center and about 70% of the people of this nation who are aware of this circle jerking by the donor money whoring GOP members of the legislative and the current executive branch.
You think after the last national tax cuts passed with bipartisan approval from the 80’s and 90’s, and the truly irresponsible hazardous ones from 2001, 2003 and the one approved a year after the bailout of the banks in 2009, which was one of the greatest acts of unacknowledged socialism since the New Deal, that these ultra successful corporations and beneficiaries of personal wealth would feel somewhat content with what they have achieved and earned with all the breaks they got. Fuck, no. You think that these people (including corporations, for they are considered individual persons) gave a shit if they were willing to spend so much money on lobbyists influencing legislation to install loopholes and donating to dutiful congressional whores instead of using that cash to give dutiful raises to their employees? Fuck, no.
The gargantuan cut to repatriating money from offshore bank accounts placed there by corporations is supposedly to encourage them to use the savings to create jobs here. So with these obscene tax cuts, will there be raises, better health plans and retirement benefits for all their efforts, eliminating the need for a nationwide raise of the minimum wage to $15 and universal coverage? Fuck no, either. Will all that money they will save legally evading their fair share of taxes go towards innovation or opening up new facilities for manufacturing products like clothes? Fuck no, either. For all that money will continue to stay put in their personal portfolios and accounts, only now they will keep the money in the basements of their sprawling mansions. Hell, they might just be able to build actual poolside banks of their own to keep their government sanctioned ill-gotten gains in and the money they will save on a p.o. box in a hut on some island resort. As the working poor will continue to live check to check and the middle class will continue to struggle to maintain themselves and accrue their own savings.
According to the authors of this bill, these cuts will pay off in the long run with all the new business it’s prospected to generate. What is not prospected by these jackasses is the inevitable burdens this will place on the people and their livelihoods it’s proclaimed to help. What is not prospected is the immediate effect it will have on the people, who vote but don’t donate, on the deleterious effects on their health insurance programs, their ability to own a home or rent, and what will happen when they are aged and unable to work.
It doesn’t even take into account on what happens when the affordable care act gets repealed, which will give millions of people a virtual death sentence lead to a jump in mortality rates. Or even how the future military conflicts, which might include a new world war induced by the idiotic social media insulting by Figurehead Trump and his catastrophic stupid executive order determining Jerusalem as the sole capital city of Israel, will affect the oligarch welfare tax cut. But the small mega-moneyed population doesn’t want to pay taxes for their vast personal property and foreign investments.
And they certainly don’t want to pay for their other properties in coastal cities and metropolises in New York and California, via the cuts for pass-through companies like LLC’s that consist of partners unnamed and unverified and foreign, which have been wholly responsible for the spread of rampant gentrification of them and the elimination of state and local tax deductions for it’s citizens. These new profits will come at the expense of street infrastructure and transit services, law enforcement, fire prevention and public education, which will certainly be vulnerable for privatization.
The obvious beneficiary and most important to our leader Trump, is that all these cuts will benefit him and his brand (though both are not mutually exclusive), his businesses and his family. Making this look like the brazen quid pro quo between this president and the GOP hacks that disgruntledly backed him last year after all the disparagement he gave them. It looks like their masochism paid off.
This bill if verified will have the most detrimental impact on the nation and it’s citizens since the Patriot Act, which has dwindled the freedoms entitled to everyone in the first and fourth amendments and has not stopped or discouraged terrorism at all and like this oligarch welfare bill, was rushed into legislation and approved without a thorough reading. But at least that didn’t have chicken scratch revisions to it placed just hours before convening to vote on it.
This is less legible than the letter Navin Johnson got from Bernadette Peters in The Jerk, which in his case he had difficulty reading because his dog Shithead gave it to him while he was taking a bath.
Besides, according to two sniveling senators, you should take responsibility and be more frugal. Sen. Chuck Grassley advises the people, which includes his constituents, to avoid spending money on booze, women and movies. For leisures like those can only be enjoyed by his moneyed donors and trust fund babies, which they will be able to partake more in with all the extra money being doled back to them to enable their frivolous spending habits.
This 500 page abomination is nothing but a government sanctioned Ponzi Scheme. For the multi-trillion dollar plan to be funded, it has to rely on induced investment monies extracted from the paychecks of the current workforce, then the future workforce once they get old and retire, depriving them of their hard earned money that would have went to pay for college debts and/or expensive health plans. And in the next 10 years their paychecks as retired people dependent on the social security and medicare that they invested in by working all their lives to enhance more obscene personal wealth for oligarchs and their heirs and the avaricious executives of multinational corporations and their shareholders.
Most of all, Trump and his family and his oligarch peers make off like the bandits they are. As their long time American Dreams, which will by law become a luxury, for collective wealth concentration will become infinite. And no one will be able to do a fucking thing. Even a true revolution would be thwarted, because they will have the finances to own their own police and military. Which in the case of Figurehead Trump, he already has with the votes of you, the people.
Essentially, it’s a domestic attack on everyone and the nation, not immediate like being attacked by a foreign enemy looming on the horizon, but a gradually slow disemboweling of people’s personal dwindling finances. It is plain and simple economic fascism. In a way, the oligarch welfare bill is sort of like how that hypothetical question given at polls of what would you do if you just a got a million dollars, except it’s billions over time with the help of a compliant congress of spineless beggars. The answer is clearly “I got mine”, because is if this piece of shit bill does pass, those whores who are in congress and the senate certain to lose their seats by the screwed over voters would not even give a shit because they will be set for life via their investments and personal fortunes, which they had no trouble building while remaining in their elected positions. These tax cuts will give them absolute finality to retire in tax payer funded comfort.
If “It’s A Wonderful Life”‘s Mr. Potter, the biggest symbol of selfishness, corruption and avarice, was still alive or even real, he would be doing donuts in his wheelchair all over the snow covered streets. Just like all those certainly to benefit for the next decade will do in their new private jets and yachts.
The FCC commissioner and his douche goblet.
The days of universal fair usage of the internet are winding down as the planned pricing restructuring of the third biggest utility behind electricity and water will be officially put into place. Unless saner heads prevails and Figurehead Trump wakes the fuck up and actually looks at the discriminatory and economically systematic fascist plan to gouge customers and curtail usage.
Ajit Pai is the worst and the penultimate kind of corporate bootlicking sell-out shills (it should be noted that Figurehead Obama hired this dork). The kind of dick that will charm then hang with you, then malign you when he’s with the boss, causing you to lose your place or employment, no matter what the facts are. He is also another selfish individual with absolutely no shame or moral sense, character traits that have become common with most of the youth of this distracted with bullshit, status and money obsessed generation and of course the boss of America, Figurehead Trump. For his last job was as a lawyer for Verizon, which despite being worth billions and having the most powerful bandwith of all telecoms, is purely not content with their success and wants more and having their dutiful patsy leading the brigade has the executives and shareholders nipples and reproductive extremities erect and excreting sticky fluids.
Pai and the FCC had to get credibility to back this seizing of the internet by putting a poll on their the organization’s website. As expected it got a massive turnout with a majority of the poll actually against net neutrality. Too bad and as predictably expected it was tainted with multiple postings by former world wrestling champ John Cena, Jesus Christ and even the last president Barack Obama, who happened to sign the net neutrality rules into law in the first place. And in the old school way of rigging votes, it had comments from the grave.
All of the comments had the same talking points pablum that has been repeatedly hammered to sway the public (unconvincingly) and the easily led and bought government officials.
Which is typical in the pandemic culture of cheating that has enveloped the way business of any kind, especially with this case involving the predominant telecoms (and also, obviously, real estate) is conducted.
The bottom line is to make as much money at as much expense on the finances of consumers that rely on this utility but mostly on the rights to be informed. Because the abolishment of net neutrality will make the acquiring of information a luxury product, or even worse will lead to total censorship for networks or individuals to disseminate information if it’s not in line with the ISP’s protocols or standards. Or if they don’t pay enough on their bills. This is cut and dry economic fascism.
The end of net neutrality will be another nail in the coffin containing democracy’s corpse if this selfish greedhead Pai and his two fellow shill monkeys on the FCC panel get their and their telecom overlords way. And they have clearly shown that they don’t give a rat’s ass what anyone thinks, which is 70% of the public that’s aware of this digital sabotaging which includes a nationwide solidarity group of the left and right from standouts like the Young Turks and Breitbart Media.
The deadline is this Thursday, which is just less than a week to persuade them to care. So here’s the commish’s email and phone number along with the two other guys who plan to vote with him.

Although the signs look dreadful, it’s worth the effort to break their brains trying.
The night after…
The night of.
In South Richmond Hill, two men from Far Rockaway bar-hopping in the town got involved in a fight with a group of men in front of a hookah hangout over a parking space and the damage caused to another vehicle. The argument escalated into a brawl with two men getting stabbed and the suspect getting into his car and driving on the sidewalk into the crowd of six people assembled in front of a corner bodega with another vehicle in pursuit of it. One man died from the vehicular attack, who turned out to be the best friend of the driver.
Liberty Ave. is one of the worst places for parking and even driving. Every night there is double parking and creative K and U turning that it’s not surprising that a gruesome incident like this happened for it was certainly inevitable. Add to it a general consensus of this generation’s proclivity and embracing of selfishness, cruelty and obligatory violence.
In Flushing, a woman was attacked from behind by two people in front of her house and her had purse stolen containing $2,000. The idiot robbers later used her card to buy something at a Rite-Aid.

In Bay Ridge at the 86th Street Train station, a train derailed at 5:30 a.m. when it ran over concrete that fell off a wall on the tracks. It really looks like it was initially laid down between the rails in a way to avoid service suspension and actually working to remove a hazardous threat. Commuters complaints ran the gamut between the consensus opinions of atypical lousy service, the asinine feud by the asshole governor and mayor over funding the subway and another similar incident from a year ago on the same line in the same town. This comes on the heels of the recent fast tracking improvement of 2 stops on the same line by gentrifying Sunset Park, which included new walls with mosaic like art on it. 86th here would have benefited with just sturdy plain walls, Gov. Andy.

In Inwood at Fort Tyron Park, a man that attacked, assaulted and was attempting to rob a woman inside a tunnel was stopped by a male jogger who intervened.

Which was accompanied by a mass deployment of NYPD patrolmen and women approximate to crowd size.
And a phalanx of militarized cops brandishing automatic rifles.
All for people that showed up expressing their freedom to publicly assemble and freedom of speech.
Yet that same police force can’t send one cop to catch and detain a pantless lunatic pervert for a year, jerking off in public in addition to threatening violence at random people, despite eyewitness accounts unless they physically go to the precinct and file a complaint.
That is a recent photo, and now he’s got a branch, wearing rogue makeup and slippers. It looks like he’ll continue to evade arrest and surveillance as long as he is not protesting against the president, any local elected official, or against issues like middle class and working poor surmounting infinite wealth disparity and the normalization and legalization of bribery in government and politics . Well, the city obviously has other priorities. Let’s be careful out there citizens.
Sucker M.C., Orange face clown
Washington D.C., The United States Of America
Figurehead Donald J. Trump is about to conclude his first year of his term as the chief executive of this nation and he spent it talking and typing shit about everyone and anything that he’s against or displeases and exposes him.
His spontaneous verbal feces and rampant splatters that his staff has to constantly deny and reinterpret every word a that comes out of his rancid mouth that can only be compared to a bunch of handlers trying to pick up after an insomniac rabid incontinent elephant running aimlessly knocking everything down and shitting over anything from any angle in it’s path.
Trump’s unchecked ramblings and vindictive targeting has reached it’s true nadir as his administration is collapsing around him. Getting regressively worse since the last time I wrote how this president is irrelevant.
Trump’s still going after pro athletes for their solidarity kneeling during the national anthem. Trump’s still engaging in petty juvenile social media wars with high political figures and celebrities. He arranged to have the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz to have her congressional hearing on the status and contracting of Puerto Rico shut down. He insulted a war veteran’s widow by forgetting his name, condescendingly telling her that he knew what he was getting into, and leaving some of his remains back in Somalia on a diplomatic mission gone awry.
Trump has decided to endorse a lecherous confirmed stalker, molester of teenage girls, one of whom he forced into sex with him when he bragged about his status as an official. Which his press secretary, who clearly doesn’t have a soul, Sarah Huckabee Sanders to deflect these disgusting charges to Trump’s and the GOP’s partisan theory that it’s better than electing a democrat. She also just recently had to deflect his moronic posting of bogus and misinformed Muslim criminal incidents by stating that the message that these attacks exist is more important than their veracity.
During all this stupid conduct unbecoming a leader or a chronic mental patient, he has betrayed his base by exposing what a pussy he is. After all that talk about China on his campaign last year, from currency manipulation to world trade, on his trip there during his Asian tour, he went to the podium to address the assembly and figuratively and humbly kiss their asses as the audience scoffed at him when he praised their trade system, pleaded with President Xi Jinping to help him with the missile crisis and continuing to garble the English language. He capped off his tour in the Phillipines with an internationally embarrassing and wretched diplomatic hummer to the murderous President Duerte, who gave the Figurehead more ideas to undermine the press when the bastard referred to them as spies.
Figurehead Trump’s biggest and most obvious betrayal to his base, if they even give a shit anymore, is his rebuilding of the swamp in D.C. with his pluto-cabinet members and the hiring of avaricious staffers without conscience dutiful to the bottom line of their corporations from the fields of finance, energy, insurance and drug companies. The swamp has now become a superfund site.
Speaking of his cruel campaigning biting him on the ass or in this case in his gullet, while on the presidential podium in the White House, he momentarily got extremely parched and had to reach for a bottle of water similar to Senator Marco Rubio’s battle with dry mouth during his State of the Union response to Obama a few years back. Except less dignified with his heavy breathing, heavy double grip and hysterical determination to look straight at the camera.
To give him some credit to derived from his mook tendencies and characteristics learned from his childhood and young adult residency in Queens and his early years as development titan in Manhattan, he has maintained his ire and verbal attacks against Kim Jong Un, his fellow trust fund baby leader. Trump’s shit-talking here has been most consistent, despite how unwise and stupid it is. For the other day, Lil Rocket Man and his dutiful military successfully tested a giant missile capable of reaching anywhere in the U.S.A.. That’s not the only worrisome thing about this, because the last test in North Korea was in an underground site tunnel that collapsed and wound up killing 200 people. Let that set in and realize that if Kim and his devoted followers, which includes millions of people, are willing to accept a mass amount of deaths to their own people just so they can be in the nuclear arms race or even decide to bomb us over the slightest provocations. And Trump has made thousands of them with his fucking blackberry.
But this ill- or actually non-advised aggression gets totally annihilated with his promise to his base and every middle class and working poor American with the next national budget bill about to gradually devastate the economy and society as a whole with the enactment of massive wide ranging tax cuts for corporations and the 1%, .1% .01%, .001% and .0001% of the richest people and the ending of tax deductions for the averaged salaried employed couples and individuals in 7 years and for the poorest individuals in 1 year. Which officially makes this the systematic destruction of the lower class and the making a new one. And makes already outstandingly wealthy people and executives even richer. Notwithstanding the obvious facts, despite Trump’s sardonic claims, of how these cuts will benefit all those, including the Figurehead, with multiple holdings and companies like LLC’s.
This crazy bill also includes the annihilation of affordable health care and permitted drilling of a wildlife forest in Alaska. Which completes a sort of sadistic hat trick of shitty legislation simultaneously showing why Trump became president and the ratification of the Expendable American Health Care Act.
All this destruction, of the middle and lower classes hopefully not from a ICBM, is going to be decided this afternoon in the Senate and it looks like it’s going to become a heinous reality. Unless something explosive turns up in Mueller’s investigation which may or may not cripple the administration as if Trump hasn’t done already.
If it does in the next few hours or even by Xmas and it leads to actual impeachment of the dotard, I hope he ends up like Navin Johnson of the Steve Martin/Carl Reiner comedy classic The Jerk. Why this analogy? There was a story a few weeks ago that Trump wanted his White House kitchen staff of elite chefs to approximate the McDonalds quarter pounder. Which immediately reminded me of the drink the demanding Navin wanted from a magazine ad.
I can see the proceedings where Donald J. Trump, if he is not perp walked from findings of money laundering funding his campaign or in his personal fortune or obstruction of justice, leaving the oval office dishevlled in a bathrobe with his boxers at his ankles, yelling how he doesn’t need anything except random things that catch his eye, walking down the halls and out the door still verbally listing stuff he’s picking up as his voice fades.
It will be as he like to call things, sad. But undoubtedly apt and justifyingly deserved.
Let’s hope he doesn’t avoid this certain hopeful fate by preemptively striking North Korea. As prophesized by Stephen King’s showboating and manipulative senate candidate Greg Stillson in the Dead Zone.
Let’s hope this doesn’t materialize. Besides, how will the 1% of the nation’s misers get to enjoy these new tax cuts.
