UnImpeachable Behavior? ~ 1 Quick Limerick #080

 

The fake prez sez, he’s free of Russian spell?
Squeaky clean, honest as Abe, no dumbbell?
Yet, oversight he defies,
Spurns sunlight, tells king-sized lies,
Which makes him look like he’s guilty as hell!

“Monday Morning” Mueller Mulling

 

Even though it’s the weekend, it’s never too late for some Monday Morning Quarterbacking. Hence… the slew of BIG Qs

• If the fake prez really is not guilty of collusion, why the need for his repeated secret meetings with Vladimir Putin? More specifically…

• WTF went down in Buenos Aires, Argentina during the Nov 30 – Dec 1, 2018 G-20 summit?

For the sake of completeness… the only others present during that on-the-sly, tête-à-tête were Trump’s alienated wife, Melania, and Putin’s untrustworthy translator.

For the sake of emphasis… that meant absolutely NO American translator / note-taker had been present.

• Why would anyone who fancies himself both a savvy businessman and (in his own trumpeted words) “a very stable genius” ever be soft in the head enough to implicitly trust Putin’s translator?

• How could he even verify that words / thoughts… both Putin’s and his own… were being accurately and completely communicated?

• Minus an American translator, how do we even know the fake prez was always keeping America’s… indeed, the entire free world’s… best interests in mind?

The mere thought of such a sketchy get-together does beg even more follow up Qs…

• Amongst that foursome, was Melania the only American in the room?

• Were we to ask the fake prez to provide an Honest-to-God, rundown re all that had transpired, would he conveniently invoke “executive priviledge” to stonewall us?

SIDEBAR: True, for national security reasons a prez… wise or otherwise… cannot always disclose everything to the general public. Even so, that does not mean that Congress should be kept in the dark, too! It’s not called Congressional Oversight for nothing! And that’s an American fact-of-life totally foreign to the fake prez… something he simply cannot begin to wrap his warped, autocratic mind around!

• Would an innocent person… ANY INNOCENT PERSON… ever need to act so furtively?

• Of course, considering his past performances… what fact checking has easily exposed to be his pathologically lying… why would we even bother to ask him in the first place?

• Even more worrisome… is he even capable of recalling much of anything, anyway?

Safe to say, Putin is the only one who is in full possession of his faculties and who knows WTF actually happened during their Buenos Aires chat. It goes without saying, he’ll forever remain tight-lipped.

Ergo… all that’s left for us is mere conjecture…

• Perhaps Bad Vlad and the fake prez were just letting their hair down and would both be too embarrassed to ever admit that all they did was tell fart jokes? Maybe even strip off their shirts to make farting noises with their armpits?

OR…

• As long as we’re on the subject of frivolity, perhaps their rendezvous had merely revolved around a silly proposition… i.e., the fake prez’s pathetic sales pitch to erect yet another gawdy, golden, phallic symbol Trump Tower to loom over and cheapen the Russian skyline?

OR were there far more serious issues…

• The translator’s whispered in the ear, not so friendly reminder… i.e., how Putin still (allegedly) possesses a suitable for blackmailing video focusing upon Russian “climate change”… or stated less euphemistically… showers of the “golden” variety?

OR…

• Putin flagrantly offering his services to screw around with America’s 2020 elections… i.e., just to insure a second term for his comrade / autocratic protégé?

Ant to that end… THE END…

• Putin’s revealing his plot to strong-arm Robert Mueller until he’d cave… i.e., agree to water down his report?

 

 

 

What kind of man is this?

 

There’s not much that most honorable folks could ever say in favor of U.S. Attorney General (AG) Jeff Sessions… who Donald Trump promptly fired yesterday.

Indeed, the now X-AG’s one and only saving grace is that he had been lawyerly enough and had harbored just enough ethical values to promptly recuse himself in the matter of Russian meddling and possible Trumpian collusion during America’s 2016 elections.

There was little else Sessions could do considering how [1] he had so closely participated in Trump’s rise to power and [2] Trump had so handsomely rewarded him with that powerful, prestigious, AG gig.

Let’s review the text to that above clip… i.e., what Trump said during that August ’18 FOX interview…

“He [Sessions] took the job and then he said, ‘I’m going to recuse myself.’ I said, ‘What kind of a man is this?’ And by the way, he was on the campaign. You know, the only reason I gave him the job, because I felt loyalty. He was an original supporter.'”

For the edification of Trump… here are three basic truths in this matter. [1] Sessions had been obligated to recuse himself, [2] an AG is NEVER beholden to the prez who appointed him and (more to the point) [3] an AG’s job description is not now… NOR has it ever been… NOR shall it ever be to demonstrate misguided loyalty by aiding and abetting any corrupt president’s attempt to cover up criminal and/or treasonous behavior.

Since this apparently exceeds Trump’s educational and ethical pay grade… of the fake prez we must now ask ourselves… and more to the point… ask aloud…

“What kind of man is this?”

 

 

 

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?

 

Mueller’s Trump Card? ~ [Bumper Sticker Blog #002]

 

 

Trump insists he has done nothing wrong and is always
truthful. If so, why is he lawyering up, scared to answer
all of Mueller’s Qs and worried about perjuring himself?

 

 

(Ab)using the Bible to Defend Child Abuse?

 

It’s Father’s Day in America. Let’s pause to consider the needless drama playing out along the U.S. / Mexico border. As you read this, stone-hearted, “just following orders” U.S. Border Patrol agents are swooping down like vultures to wrest away traumatized, wailing kids from the loving, embracing arms of their heartbroken emigre dads… and moms, too.

Try to get a sense of this parental anguish, sorrow and horror… try to envision the torrents of shed parent/child tears.

The very thought of these government agents inflicting, incalculable emotional distress and psychological damage makes national security issues seem inconsequential. One starts to wonder if such a barbarically run nation is even worthy of survival?

Fortunately, the Party of Trump does not represent the views and values of real Americans… ergo… let’s just strike out that above sentence and move on.

Every decent human being (regardless of political stripe) should be capable of equating these Trumpian tactics to child abuse / crimes against humanity.

However, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions does not seem to possess even one shred of decency. Hey Jeff, how much did you get paid for your soul? In his role of the sycophantic, unprincipled underling to “Sluggo” Trump, he has been pleased as punch to be reading out the riot act from his boss’ “how to” instruction (destruction) manual… hammering in the “prez’s” zero tolerance policy. And lost in the scuffle and shuffle… long sigh… is the goodly sum of honorable detainees, whose ONLY “crime” is illegal entry into America.

We must not forget that many of these emigres are asylum seekers fleeing their homeland’s spiritual and economic deficits… merely attempting to claim the basic human rights of dignity and liberty. Once upon a time America welcomed them… why not now?

Alas, the soulless, heartless and headless Trumpian monstrosities are training their political crosshairs upon society’s most vulnerable… our world’s children.

To be totally fair here,Trump did weigh in thusly…

“I hate the children being taken away.”

As you should mister T! Might there be some hope for him… after all? Does he not realize that it’d not take much effort to right the wrong. Let’s e.g. that…

Did it ever occur to the “prez” that it is well within his power and purview to fire off one of his Executive Orders? In the mere seconds it’d take him to scribble out 4 words, “LEAVE EMIGRE FAMILIES INTACT” and then sign on the dotted line, he could put an end to this needless child abuse.

But, let’s not hold our collective breath. Both he and most of his “yes-man” underlings appear to be doubling down on (gleefully? sadistically?) inflicting this emotional torture. This past week, we even heard Sessions offering up his indefensible defense of his indefensible boss.

Further blurring the Constitution’s separation of church and state, he rattled off scripture… thusly…

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order. Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.”

Folks, one need not be a Bible thumper to find Jeff Sessions’ use / abuse of scripture to justify child abuse… to say the least… offensive.

Considering the rightwing domination of all three branches of government, America, indeed, is in deep trouble. We see how spineless, valueless lawmakers and judges (who are supposed to thwart the machinations of an autocratic “prez”) have shirked their sworn duty. Upon factoring in how we’re also besieged by propagandists over at FAUX/FOX news, Breitbart, et al, and how there are also far too many lapdog “journalists” this can only serve to enable… not enfeeble… the run amok party of Trump.

Ergo, it’s highly unlikely that any culpable parties will ever be accused (let alone be convicted) of such crimes against humanity. NOPE, few… if any of them… are likely to ever trade in their Teflon™ business suits / robes for prison orange fatigues. One can only hope that come Judgment Day… if such a thing even exists… that the guilty will first get outfitted with their horns and pointy tails and next spend eternity in HELL!

For there is… indeed… a special place in Hell for all child abusers / all who commit crimes against humanity.

Beyond that… one has to wonder if the “prez” also buys into Romans 13? Oh… say… would he “obey the laws of the government” were Special Counsel Robert Mueller to subpoena him for a little Q & A? And, if serious offenses were to then surface, would the “prez” ever accept a Congressionally meted out punishment… i.e., impeachment / removal from office?

Would DJT go quietly or would law enforcers need to boot him out?

Might then the US Border Patrol agents… repurposed and reassigned to DC… come in handy? Most assuredly, they do know how to show someone the door.

 

 

What If Robert Mueller Believed In “Enhanced Interrogation Techniques”?

 

It’s a matter of public and journalistic record… a nefarious, sociopathic, despotic, alleged world leader (who shall remain nameless) recently, rabidly, savagely bleated out…

“Torture works. Ok, folks? You know, I have these guys – ‘Torture doesn’t work!’ – believe me, it works. And waterboarding is your minor form. Some people say it’s not actually torture. Let’s assume it is. But they asked me the question, ‘What do you think of waterboarding?’ Absolutely fine. But we should go much stronger than waterboarding.”

NO… IT’S NOT OK, FOLKS!!! Needless to say, no civilized person would ever agree with one syllable of that above quotation’s BS. Doubtlessly, as a proponent of what has been euphemistically referred to as “Enhanced Interrogation Techniques”, he’ll gleefully, (likely someday soon) use them to abuse / torture the ever-growing list of enemies of his own making.

Let’s now accurately refute that BS. From a psychological perspective, a torture victim will say whatever his tormentor wants him to say… even fess up to crimes he did not commit. Why? In hopes such admissions might put an end to the agony.

Hmmm… might that alleged world leader feel compelled to change his alleged mind if (someday soon) he winds up facing down Robert Mueller… only to discover his interrogator is a similar proponent?

To flesh that out… just how would he feel if Mueller’s inquest site is nothing less than a fully equipped, medieval dungeon… a dark, dank torture chamber where Enhanced Interrogation Techniques” rule… where the methods to all of the madness will be inclusive of…

“…beating, binding in contorted stress positions, hooding, subjection to deafening noise, sleep disruption, sleep deprivation to the point of hallucination, deprivation of food, drink, and withholding medical care for wounds, as well as waterboarding, walling, sexual humiliation, subjection to extreme heat or extreme cold, confinement in small coffin-like boxes, and repeated slapping.”

No intelligent, honorable, humane human being would ever be a proponent of inflicting any of those evil, medieval tactics. Most assuredly, NOT Robert Mueller… NOT yours truly…and hopefully NOT any of you… my readers.

Moreover, if the featured nefarious, sociopathic, despotic, alleged world leader in question were to ever fully, honestly and compassionately question / rethink his own barbaric stance… neither would he.

Alas… neither thinking / rethinking nor honesty nor compassion are among his strong suits.
