Liar Liar DeCeit Liars! (Vid of the Day)

Attn song parodists / videographers: With a judicious updating of the lyrical / visual content, Liar Liar could become the perfect tune for Washington DeCeit’s imperfect times.

From the oh btw dept: This song is especially dedicated to anyone who can be deemed a pathological liar, deceiver, fibber, fabricator, equivocator, perjurer. That duly noted…

Howdy WordPress visitors: Although it’s tough to track down a song that’ll cover each unique, ensuing, ideological crisis, thanks to Debbie Harry’s cover of the Castaways’ Liar Liar and her videographer’s incorporation of thuggish criminal visuals, the overall effect does tend to support what we suspect is going down within the bowels of the White House… a.k.a. DT’s smoke filled, War Room think tank… correction… within his think tank of non-thinkers

Now, as for what, exactly, these conspirators might be conniving, who the hell knows? Perhaps a plot (or two or three) that’d be tantamount to… worst case scenario… selling out America to a ruthless dictator (whose shortened first name rhymes with BAD)?

At the very least, such evil machinations could interfere with a blogger’s ability to expose the tru

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fortune Cookie Blog (40 ConWords)

 

Consider a confounding conundrum; the conduct of an inconsiderate, con-
ceited, condescending, bereft of conscience & contrition, archconservative
Conman. Consumed by ego, he’s perpetually ISO unconditional love/loyalty
from his confused constituents. Besieged by contorted & convoluted con-
victions, namely his hardcore contempt for the Constitution, he’s driven to
consort, consult & conspire with contemptible confederates & confidantes.
A confirmed control freak, he’ll post Tweetstorm conniptions & constantly
connive to conquer all who attempt to contravene. Consequently, it’s each
Congressperson’s sworn duty to condemn his misconduct; douse the ideo-
logical conflagration and, upon conviction, oust him from his oval confines.

 

 

 

 

 

A Lighthearted Teaching Moment (Vid of the Day)

ASIDE: Our Vid of the Day features an historic scene from yesterday’s Impeachment proceedings. That said, let’s bang this blog’s opening gavel…

Indeed, it is both dismaying and disconcerting to witness any apparent grown up, who is either unwilling or unable to grasp something so elementary as the relationship between Cause and Effect.

Alas, such is the case with the puerile, 55 year-old, U.S. House Representative Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who earned a master’s degree in education from Ohio State University, no less, YET still fails to recognize that the Cause of Donald Trump’s impeachment predicament is none other than Donald Trump, himself.

Instead, Jordan actually believes the Cause to be the very whistle-blower who justifiably and patriotically reported Trump’s quid pro quo, perfectly wrong, “perfect phone conversation” with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

While yesterday’s impeachment proceedings showcased hours upon hours of staggering, rightwing group-ignorance, it took less than one minute for the genuinely grownup (72 year-old) U.S. Representative Peter Welch (D- Vermont) to provide Jordan some MUCH NEEDED and LONG OVERDUE tutelage.

One can only hope Welch’s lighthearted, one-liner lecture can serve as enlightenment for Jordan… as well as for any other intellectually challenged, rightwing congressperson… be (s)he a Representative or Senator.

 

 

 

 

 

Impeach the President ~ Vid of the (Election) Day

Back in the early 1970s, Tricky Dicky Nixon was every bit the crook he adamantly claimed not to be. Consequently, he was facing down the all too real prospects of both House impeachment and Senate conviction. Only his fight or flight political instincts, favoring the latter, spared him the Constitutional ouster / indignity he truly deserved.

About twenty months prior to that outcome, a funk band, The Honey Drippers (with Nixon in mind) had recorded the aptly titled tune… Impeach the President.

Seeing how its composer, Roy Charles Hammond (a.k.a. Roy C), was / is quite the savvy lyricist, he had intentionally kept the lyrics sufficiently ambiguous to extend this song’s shelf-life. Indeed, this song does translate well into our Trumpian times.

And seeing how America’s voting booths are open for biz this very Tuesday, what better day to make Impeach the President our Vid of the (Election) Day.

Let’s give a listen to The Representatives’ 2017 cover version…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just sayin’…

 

Donny maintains that a sitting president is entitled to legal privilege not afforded a private citizen and, as such, the legal authorities are not free to investigate him the same way they would a private citizen. Yet, he feels entitled to a private citizen’s legal protections when the U.S. House of Representatives attempts to legally investigate him as a sitting president.

Hmm… would not such protections instantaneously morph him into a private citizen, who could then be duly arrested, charged, arraigned, tried, convicted, sentenced and jailed?

Just sayin’…

 

 

 

 

1 More Match Game Dumb Donald Clip ~ Vid of the Day

Throughout most of the 1970’s, Match Game staff writers prepared dozens of mythical Dumb Donald, fill in the blank scenarios for the show’s host, Gene Rayburn, to present to his contestants.

Obviously, this all occurred long before the real Donald’s rise to power and, yet, seeing how he has… now that we watch this game show’s yesterdays playing out today… well… there’s an added humorous dimension that’s inescapable. It tends to make one wonder if this really is mere coincidence? Of course, that does beg the follow up Q…

Might there have been a Time Machine involved… oh… say a DeLorean parked in (or in the vicinity of) the Match Game soundstage lot?

Anyway… our above Vid of the Day clip features the “fake” Dumb Donald finding new, stable employment… a prospect that his real life namesake might soon be facing down, as well.

 

 

 

 

 

Witch Hunt? Lynching? Coup d’état?

Donald J. Trump needs to rethink his contempt for the U.S. Constitution and thank its framers for authoring an orderly impeachment / removal procedure. While that’s not the same due process protections afforded ordinary citizens, he still has no good reason to fear a witch hunt, lynching and coup d’état.

Indeed, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not hired a carpenter to build a pillory. She’s not been frequenting Home Depot ISO heavy duty rope, either. As for her being a proficient military tank commander / driver / gunner? Nah… she just doesn’t seem to be the White House gate crasher / blow the front doors to smithereens type. Hell, it’s doubtful she even owns a bullhorn suitable for issuing her “GET THE HELL OUT OR ELSE!” ultimatum.

Anyway, if Donny is as virtuous, innocent and misunderstood as he claims to be, would not an Impeachment Inquiry provide the perfect, Perfect, PERFECT venue for him to prove it, Prove It, PROVE IT?

Even if he winds up impeached, anyway, the unscrupulous, soulless, spineless U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his like-minded toady underlings can be counted on to elevate rightwing partisanship over righteous patriotism… i.e., they’ll be amenable to allowing a thug to remain holed up within his oval hideout.

Even if Mitch doesn’t march in Trumpian lockstep,  Donny still has all the judges that money can buy. According to an August 5, 2019 NPR report…

“In the 2 1/2 years that Trump has been in office, his administration has appointed nearly 1 in 4 of the nation’s federal appeals court judges and 1 in 7 of its district court judges.” (read more here)

And those stats don’t even begin to factor in the U.S. Supreme / Extreme Court’s conservative bloc… inclusive of the fake prez’s handpicked, sycophantic pals, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. Hell, they’d bend over both backward and forward to rule in the Trumpster’s favor… and against America.

Speaking of anti-America dudes… Donny also has one final trump card to play. Russia’s Putin. Come Election Day 2020, Big Bad Vlad could easily finish off his no shots fired overthrow of America… i.e., do his damnedest to keep his puppet / ventriloquist’s dummy propped up in the Oval Office… and make his second term a lifetime appointment, to boot.

America would then wind up dead. And anyone who’d fail to kiss Trump rump would wind up dead, too.
