Refuting a Flawed Trumpian Talking Point

 

Trump’s floundering attorneys at (f)law, in collusion with the ginormous gaggle of grasping at straws, tin foil hat donning Republican conspiracy theorists, oft attempt to foist off their shared, flaccid fairy tale that Democrats, by dusting off the legitimate Impeachment process, are attempting to tear up the 62,979,636 ballots cast for their boy Donny.

What these right wing, wingnuts fail to acknowledge is how [1] the Framers of America’s Constitution had conceived of this very impeachment process, just in case voters, someday, inadvertently, wind up empowering a hostile to America candidate AND [2] that that someday HAS arrived!

To tear up that Trumpian false narrative…

• Had the voters been able to correctly detect Donny’s dictatorial demeanor and corrupt MO, just how many of them would’ve still cast ballots for him?

• Chances are that Hillary Clinton’s already impressive popular vote tally… 65,844,610… would’ve even more substantially trumped Trump’s… and she’d have emerged America’s 45th POTUS.

• Republicans’ “come to the defense of the voter” stance, at its best, is hypocrisy… at its worst it’s a brazen bald-faced lie. True, they may not tear up ballots, but it’s their Fascist voter suppression tactics that prevent those ballots from ever getting cast in the first place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Political Expediency & NRA A+ Grades Trump Public Safety

 

Considering how 2019 has been averaging more than one incident of domestic terrorism per day… most recently in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH… it defies belief that the powers-that-be are doing nothing… absolutely nothing to rein in these reigns of terror. To date, their tough talk of restoring and keeping the peace has gone flaccid. Indeed, their promises made / promises broken record remains unbroken… and society remains broken.

Just how can that Oval Office Occupant and U.S. Senate Majority “Leader” Mitch McConnell even claim to represent the will of the people, when they whip their middle digits at…

• 60 percent of Americans, who favor stricter gun laws
• 97 percent of gun owners… gun owners mind you… who support universal background checks

• How is it that the National Rifle Association (NRA) always gets to call all the shots (oft literally)?
• What ever happened to representative government and majority rules?
• How the hell did we ever wind up with such a dysfunctional government?

Such present-day woes can be traced, in part, to two recent betrayals…

• The Electoral College dropouts failed to do their patriotic and Constitutional duty to prevent an amoral, autocratic, corrupt tycoon from getting sworn in on Inauguration Day 2017.

• The U.S. Senate remains loaded with right-wing extremists who shamelessly prioritize partisanship, political expediency and their NRA “A+” report cards over public safety. Compromised and co-opted, they, too, flat out refuse do their patriotic and Constitutional duty to remove the fake prez.

Ergo, here we stand by, helplessly, as we watch the unchecked, brown-shirted, white robed and white hooded ersatz prez galloping off on his high horse… going off an his rampaging racist crusade… sowing the seeds that can only sprout into a crop of unfit for human consumption hatred… i.e., the KKK and Nazi magnitude hatred that can only breed domestic terrorism.

So there he stoops… the soft on domestic terrorism “prez” who muddies the collective American conscience… who rips the heart and soul out of a once-upon-a-time great nation.

Election Day 2020 does seem to be America’s last chance to restore respectability and accountability to the Oval Office and U.S. Senate… but… seeing how an unregistered, un-American, “voter”… one Vladimir Putin… remains unchecked, too…

OH GAWD… CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE WAKE ME UP FROM THIS RECURRING NIGHTMARE?

 

 

 

 

Is that dramatic enough for ya… huh? Huh?? HUH???

 

So, how the HELL did America ever get stuck with…

THAT brown shirted, white sheeted, robber-baron Putin hugger… THAT fear/warmongering, saber rattling, nuclear madman/gun nut… THAT slayer of Lady Liberty and Mother Nature, mocker of the disabled, aged and infirm, loather of LGBTQs and abuser of women and children!

Obviously, it had been the Electoral College map’s math, which rendered Hillary Clinton’s popular vote victory meaningless. Then came the Electors, themselves, who were not legally required to install the unethical, under-qualified and mentally unstable Donald J. Trump… YET… mindlessly did so anyway.

Clearly, James Comey’s reopening of the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email server issues (scant days prior to Election Day) served only one purpose… to eventually help stain that Electoral Map red and hand over the Oval Office keys to:

THAT brown shirted, white sheeted, robber-baron Putin hugger… THAT fear/warmongering, saber rattling, nuclear madman/gun nut… THAT slayer of Lady Liberty and Mother Nature, mocker of the disabled, aged and infirm, loather of LGBTQs and abuser of women and children!

Unquestionably, far more culpable was the gaggle of drama seeking media hacks. They had obsessed over that email server non-story… hounded Clinton to political death… while simultaneously not giving a hoot about the far more serious “baggage” Donald Trump was… still is… lugging around. In granting him that free pass, these charlatan scribes, too, did their damnedest to eventually help stain that Electoral Map red and hand over the Oval Office keys to… wait for it folks… a drum roll please…

THAT brown shirted, white sheeted, robber-baron Putin hugger… THAT fear/warmongering, saber rattling, nuclear madman/gun nut… THAT slayer of Lady Liberty and Mother Nature, mocker of the disabled, aged and infirm, loather of LGBTQs and abuser of women and children!

Hell, if it was drama that they had really wanted… OMG… what could’ve possibly been more dramatic than exposing even one dangerous character flaw of… wait for it folks… one more drum roll please…

THAT brown shirted, white sheeted, robber-baron Putin hugger… THAT fear/warmongering, saber rattling, nuclear madman/gun nut… THAT slayer of Lady Liberty and Mother Nature, mocker of the disabled, aged and infirm, loather of LGBTQs and abuser of women and children!

Don’t get me wrong, it’s perfectly fine for the press corps to expose candidates’ flaws. That’s the the Fourth Estate’s Job #1. But please note the positioning of the apostrophe on the word candidates’. Following the “s” means all candidates… not just one. Knowing how to properly situate that punctuation mark is the mark of any genuine article journalist.

My advice to all alleged reporters who had smeared Clinton to defeat and are already plotting to use the same attack MO against whoever runs against their boy Trump in 2020…

Since you elevate drama over time honored, journalistic standards and practices, it’s not too late for you to pack up your bags and book your flights to NYC or Hollywood… the bright lights of Broadway and the shimmering glow of Tinseltown await you all.

My advice to those who will defiantly defend the indefensible, one-sided, slanted far right status quo…

Wake up children! Now that the Helsinki Summit is history… now that the ersatz-prez has surreptitiously sold out America to his man crush… Vladimir Putin… the free press’ days are numbered.

Once Putin parks it behind the Oval Office desk, don’t be surprised if reporters wind up just like all of his other enemies… either poisoned to death or imprisoned for life.

Poetic justice? You betcha! After all it was you media hacks who had handed over the Oval Office keys to Trump… wait for it folks… one final drum roll please…

THAT brown shirted, white sheeted, robber-baron Putin hugger… THAT fear/warmongering, saber rattling, nuclear madman/gun nut… THAT slayer of Lady Liberty and Mother Nature, mocker of the disabled, aged and infirm, loather of LGBTQs and abuser of women and children!

Donald Trump enabled Vladimir Putin to roll out his overthrow of America! And Bad Vlad didn’t even need to roll out the tanks.

Is that dramatic enough for ya? Still think Hillary Clinton’s email server was the BIG STORY… huh? Huh?? HUH???

 

 

 

Bad Political Traits Oft Breed True

America’s Founding Fathers had conceived of the Electoral College to prevent voters from picking pathetic presidents. Unfortunately, too frequently, these College “students” have “flunked out”. They’ve failed to perceive negative character traits and ideological mutations, which pollute the political gene pool… breed true… resulting in one lousy administration propagating the next.

Let’s assign a title to this political procreative process…

The Book of Political Genesis

In the beginning there was Ronald Reagan’s revolting régime… which begat George H.W. Bush’s thousand points of blight… which begat Bill Clinton’s Animal House Oval Office… which begat war criminal / torturer George W. Bush’s reign of terror…

Ronald Reagan ~ In violation of Logan Act of 1799 (which expressly forbids private citizens from meddling in foreign affairs), private citizen Reagan executed an end run around President Jimmy Carter to cut a secret, dirty deal with Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini, who agreed to delay releasing his 52 U.S. Embassy hostages. That made Carter look wimpy in the eyes of the voters and, in turn, assured Reagan victory. Reagan’s payoff to Khomeini was providing him sufficient quantities of US arms and spare parts to help Iran fight their war against Iraq.

In essence, Reagan had prolonged the hostages’ misery… indeed, had endangered their very lives… just for his own political gain.

With that dirty deal with Iran under his belt, Ronnie then raged onward to mercilessly bust labor unions and, via Reaganomics, devastate the American / global economy… plunge the middleclass into poverty… the already impoverished into abject squalor.

George H.W. Bush ~ Reagan’s VP succeeded his X-boss and succeeded at heaping yet another four years’ worth of Reaganomics manure upon the downtrodden masses. He wound up mucking up the U.S. economy so badly that the PO’d voters were more than ready to vote for a Democrat, instead.

Bill Clinton ~ His “It’s the economy, stupid,” presidential campaign catchphrase resonated well with average Jane and Joe voters. He had successfully ridden the tidal wave of voter discontent to rid America of GHWB.

Alas, Billy Boy’s inability to keep his pants zipped up only served to screw up his image. His Republican opponents constantly had him in political CYA mode. In other words, Billy’s infamous female intern, Monica Lewinsky, had helped him blow away a brighter future for America.

And that, in turn, tarnished the image of Clinton’s VP, Al Gore, who had had high hopes for perpetuating eight more years of Democratic Party values. Instead, Billy’s sexcapades had put the voters into a “throw the bums out” mood, which had afforded Gore’s Republican opponent, George W. Bush, the ILLUSION of maturity, morality and respectability.

George W. Bush ~ Knowing he could not win merely on smoke and mirrors, alone, he needed help. Entering stage (far) right was Florida Governor (and W’s own brother) Jeb, who gleefully corrupted the Sunshine State… morphed it into a devoid of free elections Banana Republic “nation”. The net result was a too close to call tally of that state’s ballots.

Following Election Day, for over one month, the political firestorm blazed. The flames were soon licking at the doors of the corrupt U.S. Supreme Court, where five rabidly unscrupulous, archconservative judges practically soiled their underwear in ecstasy while coming to the aid of the lawless Bush family. It hadn’t bothered them, in the least that their ruling had denied Al Gore the recount, which he had been legally entitled to. All that mattered to them was installing the corrupt King George II.

But, after only seven months in office, W had grown listless and bored. Ergo, he decided to take a much-undeserved vacation. So eager to slack off, he had flipped off his August 6, 2001 Presidential Daily Briefing… an ominous heads up, titled:

“Bin Laden Determined To Strike in US”

Had W heeded that warning, as it turned out, he would’ve had five weeks to beef up America’s defenses. Seeing how W had chosen not to lift one finger to thwart al Qaeda’s evil plot to take out America… did zip zero nothing to preserve, protect and defend America while Osama’s assault was going down… it becomes easy for us to conclude that the Bush 43 admin had actually wanted America to be attacked.

Even worse, W’s wranglers put a spin on his getting caught with his CIC pants down… created the flat out ILLUSION that their little wittle boy president was a big badass, courageous leader (well at least they correctly assessed the “ass” part of his image).

What ensued next was not a pretty picture. W opted to go to war against an ideology… one, which knows no specific geographical location. He first deployed the troops to bomb the crap out of Afghanistan’s boulders and dirt and then trained his crosshairs on Iraq’s oil.

W told bald-faced lies to the U.S. Senate to give them the impression that Saddam Hussein had ties to 9/11… to successfully dupe Senators into green lighting a bogus war against Iraq.

Ergo, on March 19, 2003, W needlessly deployed U.S. troops… unnecessarily put them in harms way. The resultant destabilization of that entire region has made our world a far more dangerous place.

As of my blog posting time, war criminal mass murderer / torturer W is the butcher who slaughtered an estimated 251,000 people, inclusive of 4,497 American troops.

Barack Obama ~ His administration has been the rare exception… one where recessive, good political traits have surfaced. Enjoy them while they last because his likely successor will be…

Donald Trump ~ He exhibits outrageously inappropriate ignorant, insensitive, incendiary, sexist, and racist attitudes which are totally unpresidential and do not represent what the real America is all about.

But, he is correct about one thing. His telling us the 2016 November elections will be rigged. But, what he isn’t telling us is that he will be the one who’ll be rigging them. Most assuredly, he has the wherewithal to muck everything up just to try to sate his own massive ego and political lust.

Since the Electoral College “class of 2016” is likely to flunk out just like their predecessors… Trump’s bad political traits will breed true. As for what that will begat?

The Founding Fathers Had Foreseen ‘16

America’s Founding Fathers (FFs) wrote the concepts of representative government and majority rules into the Constitution. Most of these guys had presumed that this majority would consist of predominantly decent, levelheaded voters, who could be entrusted with electing respectable, sane leaders.

However… there had been a few skeptics amongst them, who could foresee the worrisome possibility of a dumbed down, gullible electorate being totally inept at choosing their presidents wisely.

To allay the naysayers’ fears, the FFs established the  Electoral College, which permitted state legislators the option of choosing electors who, ultimately, could even render the final presidential popular vote tally null and void.

That would act as a buffer / guard against both political buffoons and wicked bastards, alike… indeed thwart the plot of some “charismatic” tyrant, who might, someday, manipulate public opinion to rise to power… and then usurp even more of it later. Of course, with words like “usurp”, that usually means absolute power, which… as most of us already know… corrupts absolutely.

Well, folks, it would appear that the framers of the U.S. Constitution were prescient re this presidential matter… all the way up to America’s present-day election cycle.

Indeed… that “someday” has arrived. We’re seeing some misguided Americans, who are using their brains too sparingly / too conservatively. In that state of mindlessness, they’ve become politically intoxicated / enamored by a manipulative, narcissistic tyrant, who’s lusting for the Oval Office.

By now, I’m certain there’s little doubt whom I’m talking about… but let’s let the Huffington Post tell who he is, anyway… describe what that manipulative, narcissistic tyrant stands for.

Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims…1.6 billion members of an entire religion… from entering the U.S.

Folks, our differences are exactly what Donald Trump exploits solely for political gain. He vilifies anyone who is not waspy enough for him. He first strips the basic accoutrements of humaneness from the souls of his gullible, sycophantic, ignorant disciples. Next he executes a fashion makeover… re-outfitting these automatons in the white sheeted, white hooded “dress for regress” outfits of discrimination and hatred.

All of this severely clashes with everything, which decent, tolerance minded people still believe in, namely…

We celebrate our differences. We fully accept that human civilization consists of two major genders and a multitude of sexual identities in between… totally welcome all regardless of the level of skin melanin content… warmly embrace the wealth of spiritual, cultural and linguistic diversity.

We understand that the only legitimate way to evaluate a human being is whether that person is good or bad.

We, of sound mind, can only hope that the GOP can and will come to its senses to dump Trump at their upcoming, July 18th National Convention and, instead, select an as yet to be named candidate… ideally, someone who’s the reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln (if such a woman or man even exists amidst their rank ranks).

If not… the Electoral College could wind up being our one last chance in preventing a Trump presidency. And if they don’t dump Trump, either… well… I don’t think America could ever survive even one minute… let alone four years… of this manipulative, narcissistic tyrant.

And how odd, indeed, it does feel knowing I must now alert my more sensitive readers to the following video’s graphic language… all the profanity being publicly uttered by a national level politician, no less.

Nevertheless, I now present to you an extremely un-presidential presidential wannabe… a buffoonish, boorish, bigoted bastard…

WARNING: THE FOUL DONALD TRUMP AND HIS FOUL LANGUAGE!
