While it’d be ill-advised to ever deem credible claims uttered, written and Tweeted by #45… for discussion purposes ONLY… let’s say paragraph two, of the letter where he fired FBI Director James Comey, wasn’t a flat-out lie… namely… Comey had actually thrice assured #45 he wasn’t under investigation.
#45 fails to realize that ANY such “assurances” coming from ANY FBI agent at ANY time can ONLY mean one thing…
THE EXACT OPPOSITE IS TRUE!!!
A common cop tactic is to pretend to be his prime suspect’s pal… lull him into letting down his guard so he’ll further incriminate himself.
On this national holiday honoring the life and times… remembering the tragic death of Martin Luther King, what could any kind-hearted soul say that’d have any meaning anymore?
We ARE talking about the same nation, which has inexcusably installed a bigoted entity to the highest elective office in the land.
In the next four years, we, who still care, will be shedding tears while witnessing what little progress America has made towards the realization of King’s dream writhing around in an agonizing, life or death, deathbed struggle to survive.
Wonder what Dr. King would say were he alive today?
In all fairness…
Might Forty-Five be truthful in claiming Goldengate is flushable fake news?
Let’s consider one potential source of this leak.
Perhaps whiz kid and X-KGBer, Vladimir Putin, not content with mucking up America’s “free” elections, wants to muck up our smooth transition of power, too?
Wouldn’t a typical tyrant’s strategy be to falsely claim something kinky happened… yank Forty-Five’s chain… depend on a narcissist’s all too predictable overreaction to add credence to the yellow journalism?
And what’ll Putin do next?
Forty-Five shouldn’t be too quick to become BFFs with Putin.
With friends like that… who needs enemies?
On this very day, January 10, 1776, egalitarian Thomas Paine published his pamphlet… Common Sense.
Within those 48 pages, he presented his moral and political beliefs to the 13 Colonies’ inhabitants… i.e., that ALL people are EQUAL… deserve EQUAL RIGHTS and OPPORTUNITIES… that it was time to declare independence from England.
On this day, January 10, 2017, this egalitarian blogger CommonSenseTom, echoes and slightly updates the original Common Sense Tom’s timeless sentiments.
We MUST declare our independence from Russia… MUST NEVER accept Vladimir Putin’s hacking into America’s “free” elections AND attempts to mutate #45 into a string jerkable puppet.
Let’s unearth underhanded Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s recommended, detailed, step-by-step vetting process… i.e. how he and his archconservative, unscrupulous cronies will ensure that each and every one of the incoming admin’s corrupt, cabinet appointees are as unethical (if not more so) than they are.
Step 1. Procure a little, handheld dentist’s mirror.
Step 2. Position mirror under each applicant’s nose.
Step 3. Count to 10.
McConnell’s miscreants will rubberstamp ALL appointees who can fog up the mirror. BTW, applicants who melt down the mirror will so downright MOVE these renegade righties they’ll lose control of their sphincters and…
Propaganda Minister Bill O’Reilly has speculated that numerous big-name entertainers have refused to perform at America’s Inauguration Day festivities because they fear they’ll P.O. their fan base.
Oh really O’Reilly???
You’re overlooking the obvious… you’re such a brainless, rightwing tool you cannot fathom how these performers are righteously indignant.
Don’t you get it Billo?
It’s the B.O. factor NOT the P.O. factor… i.e., these artists loathe the nauseating, polarizing, political stench wafting off the incoming fascist régime.
Beyond the ethics there’re aesthetic concerns, too…
Who’d want to be performing while holding their noses and/or puking upon the world stage?
After spending the better(?) part of this PM listening to AM, rightwing radio talk jocks… I was shocked. They kept spewing anti-liberal vomit as if they’d lost last November. They were awful offal.
One would think these white elephant, broadcasting blowholes would be gleefully blowing their own trumpet re their Republican dominated three-ring circus featuring the…
- ethics barren House and Senate.
- soon-to-be Supreme Extreme Court.
- White House run by a short fused, carelessly Tweeting, environment devastating, deregulating, un-Constitutional, conflict of interest CIC/CEO with an itchy, nuclear, trigger finger.
All who’ll promptly tell any naysaying Democrats to F off!
Forgive me for telling you where you can stick your “fatherly” advice to American Democrats… namely… your patronizing statement about growing up and sucking up Hillary Clinton’s loss… thusly…
“You have to know how to lose with dignity.”
You’re classifying OUR behavior as what? Undignified? As if YOUR cyberattacking America is?
No “Dad” Vlad… no matter how often you say, “Nyet”, America’s FBI and CIA recognize how an X-KGBer’s machinations intensified anti-Hillary sentiments to help install his handpicked puppet.
My fatherly advice to you…
Be careful not to get tangled up as you pull Pinocchio’s strings… that’d be undignified.
Once upon a time King Grump conferred with his royal advisors… Misters Greedy, Grimy and Groper.
Mr. Greedy advised Grump to continue wallowing in dirty money generated by his dirty corporations.
Mr. Grimy counseled Grump to continue dirtying up his kingdom with the dirty, pollutant byproducts generated by his dirty corporations.
Mr. Groper recommended Grump indulge in some “playtime”, too… keep on being a dirty old man, who degrades and objectifies every woman, whose life (and body) he touches.
Eventually, this greedy, grimy, groping, male chauvinist King irreparably mucked up his entire empire’s economy, ecology and society.
My encyclopedia publisher sells yearbooks to update my 25-volume, A-Z set. However, their 2016 edition, which should’ve been shipped out in March ‘17, arrived before ‘16 is even over.
This book’s content confirms they’d gone to press mere days after America’s November elections!
Disappointed with this ten-month “yearbook”, I could’ve returned it but, instead, mailed in my payment. Why?
Because, intentionally or inadvertently, the editor has brilliantly established history’s new dividing line thusly…
Before Tyranny | After Tyranny
BTW, I won’t be buying future yearbooks. Why not?
There’ll be no future once tyranny’s chokehold devastates America and our world.
