Witness the Donald J. Trump Impeachment Trial? NOT!

Yesterday, courtesy of YouTube, I featured Live PBS coverage of the U.S. Senate’s Impeachment Trial of Donald J. Trump.

Today, I UN-feature it. Why?

For starters… Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell… no big surprise… has now hit rock bottom… has been following through on his recent public promise to NOT be impartial… which… btw… flips off the oath he took to behave otherwise.

As usual, McConnell’s assessment is dead wrong. Contrast that with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s intent, which transcends mere politics. Her House of Representatives’ primary goals have been to preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution… to preserve the sanctity of our ballot box… to save America from tyranny.

ULTIMATELY… Pelosi is telling Trump’s bff, Vladimir Putin, to go F himself!

Obviously McConnell and his fellow subversive Republicans do not take any of Pelosi’s concerns seriously, anymore.

Which brings us back to why I’m no longer streaming the trial…

Right from the get-go, Mitch and his entire Trumpian band of bootlickers, have been putting on a shameless, spineless, valueless exhibition that’s a monumental embarrassment to America. As such, I’d be ashamed to have any of you see it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Constitutional Crisis / Chaos Abetted or Averted?

 

This blog’s posting time marks the beginning of the historic, Impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump. Americans and many others spanning the whole world… will all be watching, intently, to see if U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts are honorable men, who’ll be able to [1] elevate patriotism over partisanship, [2] preside over a trial complete with witness testimony and presented evidence AND [3] pursue the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth… wherever that truth shall lead them.

While that is, precisely, what these high and mighty entities are under oath to do AND owe each and every American, alas, what We the People will likely get is quite predictable… namely…

The lurid, obscene spectacle of the Republican dominated Senate’s members, all standing at attention to salute… to lay bare… their undying, undue lust for dictator Donald J. Trump.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thinking About King

 

On both of former President Barack Obama’s Inauguration Days, I felt a surge of pride… truly believed that We the People… who had finally flipped off America’s racist past… were now in the voting majority. As such, We were now destined to, forevermore, build upon the sturdy foundation of inclusiveness… best exemplified by Martin Luther King’s I’ve got a Dream Speech and Obama’s Change We Can Believe In.

Then came Inauguration Day 2017. The End.

And what will happen come Inauguration Day 2021?

Let’s consider this plausible sequence of events…

• The owned by Donald J. Trump, Senate Majority “Leader” Mitch McConnell and his right wing, underling legislators can all be counted on to never convict the impeached prez and, once bogusly exonerated and unduly emboldened. Donny will run amok and successfully run for reelection (due to his bff Vladimir Putin’s meddling and Electoral College math).

• With all 435 U.S. Representatives and 33 out of 100 U.S. Senators up for 2020 reelection, to rein in Trump, We would need to maintain a House Democratic majority AND establish a Senate super majority. But what would any of that even mean when we’ve seen how Trump already disses House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and defies all her attempts to hold him accountable? Hell, he’d just as easily flip off a Democratic Senate and do whatever he damned pleases.

• Since Trump has been swamp dredging to find nominees to load up the federal judiciary (inclusive of his two suck-up, SCOTUS cronies Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh), who’d ever rule against Donny? Again, he’d do as he damned pleases.

• Even if Trump loses his bid for re-election, the question then becomes, will he accept defeat? Will his sycophantic, barbaric, armed to the teeth, revolting supporters accept his defeat?

• The 78 days between Election Day and Inauguration Day could provide too damned much time for his goons to go on a bulldoze-America-down-to-rubble rampage (with Donny ecstatically and emphatically egging and cheering them on. He’d likely hole up in the White House and continue to do as he damned pleases.

Against that Trumpian nightmare backdrop… perhaps even inclusive of a Revolutionary War battlefield… how could We ever expect Martin Luther King’s impassioned pleas to ever blossom into a wide awake, American Dream come true?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Warped Wayne’s World (One Quick Limerick #040)

WARNING: Normally my limericks are not so graphic. While I apologize, in advance, to my more sensitive readers, I think we can all agree that gun violence and the flat-out refusal of the powers-that-be to end it, are the far bigger obscenities here.

 

Wayne LaPierre is a dickhead, dense simp,
Far less evolved than the average chimp,
Ryan, McConnell and Trump,
Suck up to him, kiss his rump,
In Warped Wayne’s World, he’s their psychotic pimp!

 

Cast of Disreputable Characters:

Line One: National Rifle Association (NRA) Executive VP Wayne LaPierre Jr.

Line Three: (Reading from L to R) U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (who speaks only on behalf of gun nuts), U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (who only “dances” with LaPierre… i.e., only follows Wayne’s lead) and the so-called POTUS (who, in his high capacity of being the epitome of depravity, amorality and stupidity, can only lead America down the path to flat-out, societal ruin).

 

Related Bonus Limerick…

It may seem odd… but… in Warped Wayne’s World, there’s a sicko symbiotic relationship. Yep, it’s entirely possible for terrorist LaPierre to act in a dual (duel?) role… i.e. be both pimp and john. In his former role his “girls” are scared to death that he’ll beat them up politically should they ever fail to follow each and every one of his barked out orders… commands designed solely to satisfy that sociopath’s insatiable bloodlust. Yet, in his latter role, Wayne is akin to the sexual addict who pisses away billions of bucks while habitually frequenting his political whores.

 

Meet the political whores: Don, Paul, Mitch,
Wayne LaPierre: “john” and son of a bitch,
Those working “girls” turn the trick,
Suck on the NRA dick,
Wayne unloads wads of cash, makes his “girls” rich!

 

Setting all verses aside for a moment…

My heartfelt condolences to all of the surviving families and friends of each and every innocent, gun violence victim… all across gun-sick America and throughout our savage, terrorized world. To all the innocent folks who’ve been wounded… wherever you now try to piece your lives back together… you have my best wishes for the speediest, most complete recovery possible.

The Roy Moore MO?

 

WARNING: Today’s content may be upsetting to some readers.

Of all the brainwashed Evangelicals and other fools who still support U.S. Senate candidate, Alabama Republican Roy Moore, it’s pretty safe to speculate that some of them are parents of female minors. What’s been so astounding is that, in spite of five women now accusing Moore of sexually assaulting and/or harassing them in the distant past (when they were in their early and mid teens) the support from Moore’s voter base remains unwavering… in some cases has even been intensifying!

The insanely defiant and inappropriately indignant Moore has been trying his damnedest to bogusly portray his accusers as liars… misrepresent himself as the victim of some unfounded, political, ideological and theological, media driven witch hunt. He’s been hemming and hawing during media interviews and ranting and raving from the campaign trail stump… as if what? High decibel leveled rampaging and roaring could ever transform anyone’s lies into truths?

Of course, it’d not be going out on a limb to call out Moore as a liar. Even U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan no longer believe him.

Much worse than Moore’s ruthless, political ambition is his intimation that he has always been sweet and considerate prior to sexually assaulting his underage victims. Check out this creepy, far from reassuring example of that pig’s hogwash…

 

“I don’t remember dating any girl without the permission of her mother.”

 

Good gawd almighty! Are we to believe that Moore has actually ding-donged the doorbell, tipped his cowboy hat and in his thick southern accent, interlaced with his lecherous laughing, drawled out to countless moms…

 

Roy: G’day, li’l lady! Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Roy Moore and I’m running to be the next U.S. Senator to represent the great state of Alabama. I can already tell by your purdy li’l smile that you’ve heard of me! Well, to get right down to it… I could not help but admire your underage daughter when I ogled and whistled at her… tailed her ever so closely last Saturday night at the Gadsden Mall. However, since I am so gentlemanly, I’m approaching you first to let you in on all the salacious plans I have for her. You see, I plan to molest your little girl… deny her all the carefree days of her youth… traumatize and flat out ruin her entire life. And then, as soon as I tire of her, I’ll promptly dump her. Now, I do hope you’ve raised your little missy to be submissive to whatever demands I will make of her… as in… no questions asked. Indeed, I do fully expect your young’un to worship me… OR ELSE!

Mom: Uh… I dunno… maybe you had better talk to her Pa, too… he’s the man of the house and always makes the major decisions.

Roy: I thought you might hesitate. You cannot possibly view giving me permission to uh… date… your minor daughter to be a major decision. Ma’am, you’ve offended me! And I do find myself growing a bit peeved, too. So, let’s just cut to the chase! I could make life very difficult for your entire family. That’s because a high and mighty man, such as I, has many deeply rooted connections. Yes indeed, I do own dozens of good ol’ boy lawmen and… uh… well… let’s just say that since they’d be all too happy to take the law into their own hands to do my bidding, you’d be a damn fool not to fully cooperate with me here and now. To that end, I fully expect you to sign this legal waiver, which not only makes your daughter mine… all mine… but also absolves me of all legal and financial responsibility should she ever wind up… uh… well uh… let’s just say… in a family way. After all, any baby making would be all her fault… not mine. So, li’l lady, what’ll it be?”

Mom: Oh Mr. Moore, I don’t know how or why I could’ve ever doubted such a fine, upstanding big man such as you. Speaking on behalf of my husband, I know we both would be honored to have someone as famous and saintly as you violate our little girl. We’d even love to make a sizable contribution to help with your campaign. Now, where do I sign?

Roy: Right by that little ol’ X. Now you be sure to press hard so it appears clearly on all five copies. And do fetch your checkbook, too!

Mom: I know you two will have lots of fun! (turning to shout up the staircase to her daughter). Honey, a nice man named Roy… who’ll soon be our U.S. Senator… is on his way up to pay you a li’l visit! Now you be sure to do whatever this great man tells you to do… no matter what… ya hear?

 

 

I sure as hell do hope that that above conversation is nothing more than a work of fiction. For, if it is not, any mom or pop who’d ever let any sexual predator take indecent liberties with their own daughter should be reported to Child Protective Services… ASAP! Prison sentences for all the guilty parties would be in order, too!
