No Comeuppance invites the Comeback

`

It’s now going on forty-eight hours since domestic terrorists attacked my homeland’s capital city; since subversive rampaging assailants targeted a lifelong loved one of mine, namely, Lady Liberty. So, please bear with me if my overwrought feelings of heartache and righteous indignation impair my ability to adequately express myself.

While many of us have been down this road before; most notably during / following the 9/11 attacks and the Martin Luther King and Kennedy assassinations, take it from me, such experiences do little to make coping with this past Wednesday’s revolt any easier.

Even though no PhD’s in Psychiatry and Poli-Sci had been prerequisite for any thinking person to sense the pointless, needless, worthless, four-year-long, undercurrent of Trumpian tensions (all of which had sparked the DC siege), Wednesday’s insurrection had still been shocking / horrifying (and still is). I mean…

Here we had the (in title only) President of the United States of America, no less, utilizing / exploiting / bastardizing his bully pulpit; barking out his marching orders to trigger an assault against the United States of America, no less!

We then witnessed legions of HIS marauding domestic terrorists, cultists all, unconditionally and meticulously dotting every “i” / crossing every “t” of HIS dictates; committing unforgivable, heinous, seditious acts on HIS behalf!

What a crying shame that NEITHER the subversive leader NOR the misled have even the slightest inkling re what America is truly all about; what honest to God patriotism involves. Alas, long sigh, that’s to be expected when each of them has rocks within the cranium and a stone beneath the sternum.

If justice can still prevail, We the People must hold all of these insurrectionists accountable for their attempted coup d’état; punish each and every last damned one of these bastards, to the fullest extent allowed by law; inclusive of the 140 U.S. House Representatives, 12 U.S. Senators and the 1 (and thank God only) Donald J. Trump.

Re that last on the list entity, he must be removed from office, via either the 25th Amendment Section 4 or by Impeachment / Conviction.

As for Trump’s legislative branch co-conspirators, in particular, they, too, must be totally stripped of their power (whilst due process is doing its thing). And, as soon as guilty verdicts are handed down, their punishment should be inclusive of being forever banned from holding / seeking elective office.

Forgiving and forgetting is NOT an option! No comeuppance could only invite a comeback.

About the only good that has come out of this past Wednesday’s failed coup has been twofold:

The heightened awareness of our undying love for America!
The reminder that we must never, again, let down our guard!

DISINFECTANT IS FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY!

That this blog’s headline would even be necessary, serves as testimonial to just how nonsensical and/or non compos mentis Donald J. Trump is. Against the backdrop of his pandemic-related (usually) daily press briefings, the fake prez’s all too real, frequently life endangering, rambling discourse gets routinely disseminated… worldwide… at the speed of the Coronavirus, itself.

To expand on my headlined point, I must now issue the following life saving warning to all the gullible folks, who, no questions asked, eat up whatever crap their beloved Donny is force-feeding them…

DISINFECTANTS ARE FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY, AND WILL NOT CURE ANYONE OF COVID-19!

While Trump has since claimed his bizarre advocacy of disinfectants was nothing but sarcasm, nonetheless, Lysol™ spokesperson, UK’s Reckitt Benckiser, was also duly alarmed… deemed it PRIORITY #1 to issue this disclaimer to NBC news…

“As a global leader in health and hygiene products, we must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route). As with all products, our disinfectant and hygiene products should only be used as intended and in line with usage guidelines. Please read the label and safety information.”

Due to man-child Donny’s wholesale disdain for reading, in all likelihood, he’s never even noticed such labelled info, which is, typically, directed at toddlers’ parents.

Lest his reckless rhetoric, someday add to the COVID-19 death toll, one of these three methods could contain the Trumpian verbal diarrhea and, in a sense, disinfect the White House.

This starts with the behind the dais crowd… a.k.a. the White House Coronavirus Task Force. In real time, they must debunk Donny. After all, to promote and maintain public health is not only a fundamental aspect of their very job description, it is their moral duty. As for the MDs amongst them, there’s also their Hippocratic Oath, which obligates them to do no harm.

Let’s move on to the before the dais crowd… a.k.a. the White House Press Corps. While journalists are duty-bound to speak truth to power, at such press briefings and elsewhere, they must PULL THE PLUG on LIVE coverage… or… at the very least… put Trump’s audio / video feed on a 30 second delay to allow their respective network directors to deny the Drug Pusher-In-Chief the platform, from which to launch his snake-oil sales pitches.

Finally there’s that ol’ Constitiutional route, too… a.k.a. the 25th Amendment Section 4, which so eloquently reminds…

“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”

While a Pence presidency would not be much of an improvement, the housecleaning / White House spring cleaning must start somewhere. Of course, if he, too, proves as dangerous / dysfunctional as Donny… why not go the President Nancy Pelosi route? After all, as U.S. House Speaker, she’d be next in the line of succession.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monumental Mental Illness? (Vid of the Day)

Daily Show host Trevor Noah, is to be commended for so cleverly letting this clip’s story report itself. Even so, the alarming, key issue it raises requires a frank discussion… followed by some prompt, official, orderly action. I mean, any rational person, who is earwitness to this content, is bound to wonder…

Just where, within any (more or less) English speaking sector of our vast multiverse, does any of Donald Trump’s stream of (un)consciousness make any sense at all?

Even the trio of glazed eyed, slack jawed, grinning doofuses (a.k.a. Fox & Friends’ sycophantic propagandists Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade) seem to be even more befuddled than normal… if “normal” is even the operative word, here. Donny incessantly and angrily prattles over approximately one dozen of his friends’ repeated attempts to get his crazy train / train of thought back on the tracks.

Anyway, seeing how we are all still here, it’d appear that the boot-licking approach to psychotherapy may’ve distracted him for the time being. But… what the Hell would happen were he to suffer a monumental mental melt down when they’re off duty?

Left to his own devices (an estimated 4,018 nuclear devices) the fake prez / man-child / engineer could easily choo-choo 7.7 Billion Earthlings into an apocalyptic train wreck.

Referring back to our clip… i.e., Donny’s on the air, off the cuff aside… “I know, we can keep this going all day, right? It’s easy”… should serve as a mental note to his upper echelon underlings… oh… say… remind them that, for the sake of America’s…. indeed, the entire world’s survival… it’d be just as easy to promptly dust off the U.S. Constitution’s 25th Amendment Section 4, which states…

“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”
