The ReVictimization of Ms. Christine Blasey Ford

Christine Blasey Ford alleges that three+ decades ago (as teenagers), [1] Brett Kavanaugh attempted to rape her, [2] he could’ve accidentally suffocated her to death, [3] his male friend aided and abetted his savage assault AND [4] she had narrowly escaped owing only to her assailants’ drunkenness, her quick thinking, strong survival instinct and a timely assist from Lady Luck… read her full story here.

Both Brett Kavanaugh and his friend have denied her accusations.

A prime example of the classic she said / he said stalemate. However, based upon Ford’s account of this incident, this psychological profile emerges…

Ford was victimized by disgusting, sadistic males, who wrongfully believe it their birthright to deliberately dehumanize, disrespect and dominate womankind.

In a less politically fractured, more humane era, one could’ve expected Ford’s credible allegations to even motivate a predominately Republican Senate Judiciary Committee (SJC)… indeed, the entire U.S. Senate… to [1] set aside their partisanship, [2] indefinitely halt Kavanaugh’s appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court AND [3] approve Ford’s most recent request for a rigorous, external, impartial investigation PRIOR to her appearing to testify.

While it’s true that these SJC righties have been, OUTWARDLY, attempting to “make nice” with Ford, make no mistake, ONLY election year, political expediency is motivating them. Yep, they can dig how liberal voter backlash is brewing… enough to boot their archconservative asses out of DC.

Additionally, I’d hardly call it nice of these Republicans to [1] flat-out deny this woman’s reasonable request for an independent investigation, [2] only permit Kavanaugh and Ford to testify (which can only end up in yet another she said / he said stalemate) AND [3] continue to courteously offer a Supreme Court chair to someone who, in the minds of all ethical people, will forever remain a suspected rapist. However, based upon these Republicans’ words and deeds, this psychological profile emerges…

Ford is being victimized by disgusting, sadistic males, who wrongfully believe it their birthright to deliberately dehumanize, disrespect and dominate womankind.

In a less politically fractured, more humane era, one would think Ford’s credible charges would result in a virtually unanimous, supportive, public outcry on her behalf!

But, instead, we now witness Trump’s roused rabble venting their mindless, pointless outrage by targeting Ms. Ford with their vicious harassment and death threats. However, based upon Donny’s deplorables’ words and deeds, this psychological profile emerges…

Ford is being victimized by disgusting, sadistic males, who wrongfully believe it their birthright to deliberately dehumanize, disrespect and dominate womankind.

I’m sure you’ve noticed the repetitiveness within those above, three, indented paragraphs. What better way to point out how the attack, which Ms. Ford alleges… even now… 3+ decades later… is still being aided and abetted by the same rapist mentality of her (alleged) original assailants.

 

Will Kavanaugh’s Duds Be Judical Black or Prison Orange?

Palo Alto University Professor Christine Blasey Ford, most assuredly, does not share Donald Trump’s high opinion regarding his U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

Ford said…

“Brett Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted me during high school in the early 1980’s. He conducted these acts with the assistance of Mark Judge. Both were one to two years older than me and students at a local private school. The assault occurred in a suburban Maryland area home at a gathering that included me and four others.

Kavanaugh physically pushed me into a bedroom as I was headed for a bathroom up a short stair well from the living room. They locked the door and played loud music precluding any successful attempt to yell for help. Kavanaugh was on top of me while laughing with Judge, who periodically jumped onto Kavanaugh. They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state. With Kavanaugh’s hand over my mouth I feared he may inadvertently kill me.

From across the room a very drunken Judge said mixed words to Kavanaugh ranging from ‘go for it’ to ‘stop.’ At one point when Judge jumped onto the bed the weight on me was substantial. The pile toppled, and the two scrapped with each other. After a few attempts to get away, I was able to take this opportune moment to get up and run across to a hallway bathroom. I locked the bathroom door behind me. Both loudly stumbled down the stair well at which point other persons at the house were talking with them. I exited the bathroom, ran outside of the house and went home.”

Kavanaugh said…

“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”

Judge said…

“It never happened. I never saw anything like what was described. It is not who he is.”

SIDEBAR: Rather than my repeatedly typing in the words alleged and allegedly, as you read onward, keep in mind that my commentary and characterizations are still unproven conjecture. That duly noted, let’s deconstruct those above three block-quoted passages in reverse order. 

Judge’s words, if uttered under oath in a courtroom, could be deemed perjury. His all too predictable “loyalty” to Kavanaugh could also be categorized as self-serving.  After all, to implicate his buddy, Brett, would be to implicate himself.

Kavanaugh’s all too predictable self-defense is that of a misogynist who’d say / do anything to sate his lust for power… to have his way with / force himself upon an entire nation… especially upon the entire female demographic of said nation.

Ford’s fully detailed, alarmingly chilling account is totally credible. She has finally managed to drown out those long ago decibels of excessively loud music and pry free that suffocating, grubby paw blocking her nose and covering her mouth. Her muffled screams and cries for help have now spanned the decades.

While nobody came to Ford’s rescue back then, it would not be too late for the Judiciary Committee’s Republican Senators to find their hearts… to gain some sense of the traumatic experience her attackers forced her to endure… to hear her cries for help. If these righties have even one shred of decency they’d vote along with the Democrats to, unanimously, deny Brett Kavanaugh that ninth seat on the Supreme Court bench.

As for Trump and his ilk, Election Day 2018 will be the pivotal moment. They do realize that defending Kavanaugh too strongly could easily infuriate voters to the point where Republicans will wind up losing control of both the U.S. House and Senate… thereby leaving Donny totally vulnerable to impeachment and removal from office. My recommendation to the entire American electorate is that we make damned sure that we make both of those Republican nightmares come true!

Their fears have been the ONLY thing, which has prevented the (similarly accused of sexual assault) sitting, ersatz prez AND the horde of his rapist sympathizing, congressional cronies from brutally, sadistically re-victimizing Ms. Ford.

Of course, my above observations are merely educated guesses, which, at this early juncture, do not count… and must not count! Why not?

Because here in America, we believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty and that a court of law… NOT the blogosphere… is the proper venue for establishing guilt.

Due process must run its course. FBI investigators need to do their thing. If they find Ford’s claims credible, then Kavanaugh should pose for mugshots, be fingerprinted and go to trial where a jury of his peers can hear the testimony, weigh the evidence during deliberations and then either acquit or convict him. If they deliver the guilty verdict… then he must do the time for committing the crime.

One would expect attorney Kavanaugh, presently a U.S. Circuit Court Judge, to respect / be an avid advocate of due process, right?

Of course, if he has one shred of decency left in him, he would offer his sincere apology to Ford AND avoid a trial / re-victimizing her by confessing.

Well, from this point onward, as we turn our attention to all things Trumpian, there’ll be no further need for the word alleged.

In spite of the fake prez’s totally out of character subdued public utterances, yesterday, it is reasonable to suspect that, privately, deep within the bowels of the Trumpian Universe, the whiny, childishly impatient, impetuous “prez” and his like-minded Senators are all infuriated because the Democrats have temporarily succeeded in delaying their concerted efforts to railroad their boy, Brett, through the confirmation process… get him seated before the 1st Monday in October when the eight other SCOTUS judges return from their summer recess.

Of course, these righties have no one else but themselves to blame for having taught Democrats delaying tactics. Have they already forgotten how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had marginalized both President Barack Obama and his SCOTUS judge nominee, Merrick Garland… forgotten how that resulted in the Supreme Court being minus one judge for over 400 days?

Anyhow, since America could survive that vacancy for over one year, we can certainly survive another one. All of us thinking adults would be willing to wait for as long as it may take to determine, beyond a shadow of a doubt, whether Brett Kavanaugh should don a Supreme Court black robe or jump into a prison orange jumpsuit.

A Pathogenic Dealey Plaza?

 

Following the (alleged), lengthy, outward-bound trail of “bread crumbs” extending from the White House to two specific boudoirs, we now know how sufficient funds proved insufficient in silencing a porn star and a Playboy bunny… i.e., could not prevent them from exposing the X-rated (alleged) prez’s (alleged) extramarital hook-ups.

1. If the fake prez’s sexploits are, indeed, true… one wonders how a self-proclaimed “stable genius” could ever be caught in flagrante delicto. One would think that, at the very least, he’d be aware of the fact that…

Money Can’t Buy Him Either Love or Silence!

How ironic it is, indeed, how he cannot even properly assess who’s to blame. Hell, all he would ever need to do is gaze adoringly into the nearest mirror. Now, that’s not asking too much from a narcissist… is it? Well… apparently it is.

Instead, we find that his persecution complex, paranoia and arrested development are all acting like a harmful drug interaction… i.e., one that drives him to bogusly brand finger-pointing Democrats and liberals as mudslinging disseminators of “fake news”.

At the risk of over-generalizing… must anyone remind the (alleged) prez that sex industry workers tend to be liberally minded? Such a ‘tude could certainly prove an asset for anyone who bares it all and/or boinks for bucks. Additionally, many of these folks feel the “allure” of porn wages, which far exceed the non-living, minimum wage jobs, which billionaire conservatives purportedly “create”. As such, a nude model / porn star could neither feel any loyalty to the big bucker Donny… nor could he ever expect them to cozy up to the glaring hypocrisy of his publicly, pretending to be a Bible thumper while privately fornicating.

Hmm… to help him atone, perhaps, future mistresses could spank / thump Trump’s rump with a Bible? Uh… BAD IDEA! The Secret Service would first freak out… next categorize that as an assault… and finally rush in to (hopefully secretly) offer up their protection.

2. If the fake prez’s sexploits are, indeed, true… one wonders how a self-proclaimed germ-o-phobe could ever overcome his fears long enought to engage in risky, condom-less conduct? BTW, the porn star did claim they had barebacked it! Imagine that… even against the backdrop of an antibiotic / antiviral drug resistant, STD raging pandemic… one that’s inclusive of potentially fatal HIV/AIDS! And, most assuredly, when considering the tenacity and adaptability of most microbes, usage of words, such as FATAL, would not be unwarranted.

3. If the fake prez’s sexploits are, indeed, true… this means he has not only had sex with two women but with every last, damned one of their sex partners… and with every partner those partners have had sex with… and on and on and on.

4. If the fake prez’s sexploits are, indeed, true… how can any medical professional ever claim (with any certainty) that nasty microbes… maybe even some that have yet to be discovered… have not been rotting away his body and (alleged) brain? Indeed, might his reckless, erotic private behavior account for much of his wildly erratic, public behavior?

5. If the fake prez’s sexploits are, indeed, true… what would stop an enemy from using that against him. What if that were to go beyond that (alleged) made-in-Russia pee-pee tape, which Vladimir Putin is (allegedly) using as blackmail? Bad enough… BUT… here’s where the (alleged) prez’s (alleged) promiscuity gets even dicier.

What if, someday, an ISIS type foe were to hire some bioethics barren, recombinant DNA geneticist… ask him/her to tinker with the adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G) and cytosine (C) bases… and in the process… cook up a totally new sexually transmitted disease? Let’s say that resultant microbe is fine-tune engineered to be female gender-friendly. Fleshing that diabolical scenario out further, each infected woman would become a totally unharmed carrier fully capable of spreading the disease to each of her totally vulnerable male partners… men who’d, eventually, succumb? Perhaps that pathogen should be named the BlackWidowSpider-18? Or to be more scientifically accurate call it the LatrodectusMactans-18?

6. If the fake prez’s sexploits are, indeed, true… one would hope that his Secret Service protectors are cognizant of the fact that any of his drop-dead-gorgeous women, in actuality, could be in possession of a deeply concealed (as in… invisible to the naked eye), drop-dead caliber weapon. In other words, the fake prez, while tooling down each partner’s “private road”… as it were… could be driving down the pathogenic equivalent of JFK’s 11/22/1963 motorcade drive through Dealey Plaza.

One would expect Secret Service training to be inclusive of such futuristic plots… i.e., so they’d know their protection should be inclusive of confronting and confining a suspected bio-assassin before she had even undone one blouse button… or if things had already gotten down and dirty… to… at the very least… rush in… just in the nick of time… to offer (latex) protection to the prez!

Yeah… I know… I know… I know…

This blog’s already icky subject matter has just gotten even ickier. But… as we all should know… both a Blogger’s and a Secret Service agent’s job can get dirty… but damn it… someone has to do it!

 

 

Happily… No Crickets Were Harmed In This Post (Either)!

 

If you missed my monthly musical program titled No Crickets Were Harmed During This September BlogCast you can ACCESS IT HERE.

In that post, I spoke of a cricket who had set up residence in my cellar… and of my not wanting to harm him in any way. You see, I include myself among the various cultures spanning our globe, which regard crickets highly. True, some folks might dismiss such sentiments as superstition, however, I’d prefer to categorize these as spiritual.

However you may weigh in, in our discussion, I do have good news to report. A couple of nights ago, my above-mentioned cellar dweller came out of hiding long enough for me to use the glass jar method (outlined in my past post) to carefully capture and return him to the great outdoors. Totally unharmed, he now has rejoined his brethren… once again adds his chirps to their fall-time symphony.

 

A Non-Preachy Sunday “Sermon”

Give a listen to a selection from Carole King’s “living room” jam session… her catchy “little tune”… Pleasant Valley Sunday… is jam-packed with big thoughts.

Listening / reading between the lines, we can all get a better sense of what really does (and does not) matter in life.

 

 

Altruism and Avariciousness Can Both Breed Aggression

 

A power wielder’s projected presence upon our world can be motivated by either altruism or avariciousness.

Selflessness (as incredible as this sounds), is not always welcomed… not when the recipient nation’s head of state is an oppressor… one who gets easily pissed off by any outsider providing humanitarian aid. After all, no oppressor takes kindly to anyone who’d dare to ease the unspeakable human suffering of the oppressed.

Selfishness (no big surprise), is never welcomed… not when the targeted nation’s head of state knows fully well that the intent of his plundering oppressor / attacker is to grab real estate and/or gobble up natural resources. Such a victimized leader will… justifiably so… feel pissed off, too.

Either scenario can result in retaliatory attacks… such aggression fueling an endless feeding frenzy of subsequent eye-for-an-eye magnitude vengeance.

While that stark reality would ALMOST make it seem prudent for every leader to embrace mind-your-own-damned-business isolationism… well… this would likely wind up a unilateral prospect. Such a stance would aid and abet the in-your-face oppressor / aggressor adversary. And that then raises the issue, which no compassionate soul could ever accept… namely…

Whoever would dare to harm even one innocent soul harms us all.

All of these inevitable, regrettable realities can only emphasize the precarious, catch-22 nature of international relations and… inserting my own long exhaled, exasperated sigh here… the inevitable, regrettable reality of terrorism / warfare.

We can never expect aggression / oppression to vanish off the face of this Earth until humanity… somehow… someway… figures out how to consistently ensure madmen are never allowed to rise to power in the first place… ensure the mentally unstable are institutionalized so they can receive the therapy they so desperately need.

 

The 9/11 Prez’s Stench Rendered Naïve Voters Nose Blind

 

Let’s rehash George W. Bush… the 9/11 “prez”. For starters, his very rise to power hinged upon his mouthpieces and handlers successfully corrupting 5 of the 9 SCOTUS judges… coercing them into denying his opponent, Al Gore, what should’ve been the mandatory, statewide recount of the disputed Florida ballots.

In the end, W wound up stealing the 2000 elections… cheating his way into the Oval Office. The glaring irony… he had never actually wanted the presidency. He had amply demonstrated his disinterest by turning a blind eye to his 08/06/2001 Presidential Daily Briefing’s figurative, flashing red lights… a deaf ear to the accompanying, figurative, high decibel klaxons. What part of that PDB’s headline “Bin Laden Determined To Strike in US” did he not comprehend?

That spot-on, invaluable intel had forewarned W of the imminent hijackings five full weeks before they went down. Why the hell… at the very least… had he not beefed up airport security?

OK… in all fairness… it’s totally possible such an effort would’ve proven insufficient to prevent 9/11. Nonetheless, he should’ve tried. But, instead, W went on vacation… and after a mere seven months into his first term.

And so, his slacking off allowed the jets to crash into the twin towers, five sided architecture and rural real estate… caused nearly 3,000 needless deaths. And so, he was caught with his commander in chief trousers down… staring into the cameras… caught in their unforgiving glare like the proverbial, dazed deer caught in the headlights.

At that point, his in a tizzy spin doctors and image consultants went into damage control mode to beef / stiffen up his flaccid, unpresidential image. Yep, they were already thinking way ahead towards his ’04 reelection campaign. To that end, they’d begun to mutate their little boy W into “The Boy Wonder”… the “blood and guts”, “rampaging”, “superhero” persona he never had and never would. He’d order US troops to pointlessly rampage into Afghanistan and Iraq… to bomb the crap out of them… to commit crimes against humanity such as the waterboarding / torturing of their captured POWs… to permit Osama bin Laden to flee.

And, as if that weren’t bad enough, already, W collaborated with US Congressmen to bulldoze and bury the US Constitution… to gut that once hallowed, Founding Father penned document of any promises that’d “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”

W’s legacy… He became an un-convicted war criminal and bank robber. He needlessly rolled out the tanks and tanked out the economy. He militarily splattered the red blood and monetarily splattered the red ink.

To keep it real… statistically, W blew away one million humans and blew one trillion bucks fighting his no-win, never-win war on terror.

All that had actually accomplished was to set the Republican, presidential expectations bar low. In other words… if the majority of American voters could put up with the stench of George W. Bush, they could easily go nose blind to the far worse stench of Donald J. Trump.

The End!

 

9/11 Message ~ Sagan’s WorldView (Hindi Translation)

Originally, Carl Sagan’s stellar oratory had summed up his eloquent reaction to the Valentine’s Day 1990, Voyager 1, Pale Blue Dot snapshot (taken from our solar system’s outer edge). However, on this day, the 17th anniversary of 9/11, the wise, heartfelt, timeless sentiments of this American astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist, author, science popularizer and science communicator take on extra special meaning.

Indeed… his words do live on… but… will we?

Such a spot-on, soul searching speech exemplifies the common bond we humans share with each other… translates out well… spans the ages, acreage and cultures of Earth. No better proof of this fact is the above video featuring Azhar Meghani’s English to Hindi translation / voice-over and editor Lokesh Kumar’s skillfully juxtapositioned, cross-culturally appropriate imagery.

Terrorism and warfare would soon vanish off the face of the Earth were the entire human race to fully embrace Dr. Sagan’s worldview. Consider this his urgent appeal for peaceful co-existance amongst all Earthlings everywhere!

 

So fleeting a video’s existence can be… so vital is Sagan’s message… I’m including this text version, too.

“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there–on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”

 

A 9/11 Memorial Message… Carl Sagan’s WorldView

On this day, the 17th anniversary of 9/11, the wise, heartfelt sentiments of the late Carl Sagan take on extra special meaning. The words of this American astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist, author, science popularizer and science communicator live on. Will we?

Terrorism and warfare would soon vanish off the face of the Earth were the entire human race to fully embrace his world view.

Consider his timeless words to be his address to all Earthlings everywhere.

To Preserve, Protect and Defend His Own Grubby Hide

The flag hugging, so-called prez claims to be a patriot. Would you not agree that a person who professes his love for America would also extend said love to the U.S. Constitution?

So… is the so-called prez truly patriotic? Not when his own words and deeds have amply proven his ignorance / arrogance fueled belief that the U.S. Constitution’s 1st Amendment does not protect Civil Rights activist Colin Kaepernick.

Hmm… looks like the so-called prez’s racism is glowering forth from his KKK white hood’s eye-holes. Little doubt, the fake prez is reveling in the perverse satisfaction of knowing that his own ill-considered, intemperate influence over the NFL’s cowardly big bosses has wrongfully deprived Mr. Kaepernick of his livelihood. Hell, if left to his own devices, Donny would gleefully (and unlawfully) lock this quarterback up… and throw away the key.

So… is the so-called prez truly patriotic? Not when his own words and deeds have amply proven his ignorance / arrogance fueled belief that the U.S. Constitution’s 1st Amendment does not protect journalists. Indeed, if the whiny, so-called prez could have it his way, he’d unlawfully muzzle and/or imprison any reporter who does not suck up to him.

SIDEBAR #1: For the benefit of anyone who may’ve slept through their civics lessons, we ARE talking about the 1st Amendment which states… in part… “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

So… is the so-called prez truly patriotic? Not when his own words and deeds have amply proven his ignorance / arrogance fueled disregard for several of the U.S. Constitution’s articles… e.g., those passages which explicitly lay down the law re the Separation of Powers… stipulate the required Checks and Balances among the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches.

No shocker here, the so-called prez’s mission has been to seize absolute power by blurring these boundary lines. To that end, he’s been loading up the U.S. Supreme Court to his own advantage. To that end, he’s been colluding with his spineless, corrupt, congressional cronies… effortlessly intimidating these legislative lapdogs… even guaranteeing them a lifetime of political power if they bend over backwards for him (or is that forwards?). Yep, he’s got these wildly partisan, corrupt crony legislators rubber-stamping his wildly partisan, corrupt crony, U.S. Supreme Court nominees.

SIDEBAR #2: If/When Special Counsel for the Department of Justice Robert Mueller establishes how Donny’s words and deeds have been illegal / treasonous / collusive with Russians, these complicit congressmen would never, ever dare to even whisper the “I – word”. Even were they to, somehow, do the right thing and Impeach that autocratic automaton, Donny could always first stick out his tongue and next say, “OH YEAH?” He’d then proceed to pull the strings of his indebted SCOTUS judges / puppets and make them dance to his trumpeted “music”. These cherry-picked charlatans would be akin to a jury of his own peers who’d never even dare to find their flagrantly guilty, puppeteer boss guilty of anything.

SIDEBAR #3: Why do we even bother pretending the U.S. Constitution even exists anymore? Seeing how Despot Donny, has already, unilaterally usurped power, why not just pink slip the 535 Congresspersons and the 9 Supreme Court judges? Imagine the megamillions of tax dollars saved! (Naturally, I don’t really mean this. I’m just stating this for the shock value. I mean somebody has to attempt a tough love, political intervention… nope… we had better make that an exorcism).

So… is the so-called prez truly patriotic? Not when his own ignorance / arrogance fueled words and deeds have amply proven his total disregard for the Presidential Oath of Office! What could possibly be more clear than this straight talk straight from the U.S. Constitution… ”I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Bottom line… ever since Inauguration Day 2017, most assuredly, the so-called prez has not been doing his best “to preserve, protect and defend” anything other than his BFF Vlad, his own corrupt dirty business deals and his own grubby hide. Hell, he’s practically been wiping his fat fanny with pieces of the American flag and Constitution of the United States.

Anyone who’d stain the Red, White and Blue brown sure as hell doesn’t sound like a patriot to me. How about you?
