Bide-n His Time?

 

Wow! Mere days following Super Tuesday and long before multiple millions of primary ballots have yet to even be cast and counted, candidate Joe Biden can already count on becoming the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee. The big question…

• Can Barack Obama’s ex-VP really, Really, REALLY defeat Donald Trump?

Joe had better be fully prepared to take on that Herculean Task. After all, Donny will be huckstering and rehashing a hoax… donning his tin-foil hat and trotting out his Biden / Burisma / Ukraine false narrative… i.e., the exact same way he successfully exploited this bogus issue throughout his legitimate House Impeachment and undeserved Senate acquittal.

• What does this all boil down to?

Well, instead of this presidential Election Year becoming a substantive, issues based campaign, the Trumpster… who neither has a firm grasp on the real issues nor shives-a-git about them… will, instead, be prevaricating and mudslinging his way to victory. Hell, that pathetic little man tells huge whoppers so frequently and fanatically, even he believes they’re the truth. Worse yet, so do the gullible masses, who’ll be reelecting him.

Even were Biden to, miraculously, win the White House, unless the Democrats also secure U.S. House and Senate majorities, his presidency will mean nothing.

•  What if vengeance seeking Republicans do wind up controlling both legislative chambers?

At the very least… Biden will be facing down ferocious obstructionism.

Net effect… the real issues… e.g., climate change, free elections, nuclear disarmament, gun control, women’s rights, human rights, fair immigration laws, living wages, an equitable tax code, affordable housing, healthcare and prescription drugs etc.… will NEVER be dealt with in any meaningful way.

At the very worst… sore loser, vengeance seeking Republicans will dredge up the Trumpian lies re Ukraine / Burisma / Biden and use this as the basis to unjustifiably impeach, convict and remove Biden from office.

Net effect… the real issues… e.g., climate change, free elections, nuclear disarmament, gun control, women’s rights, human rights, fair immigration laws, living wages, an equitable tax code, affordable housing, healthcare and prescription drugs etc.… will NEVER be dealt with in any meaningful way.

Of course… even in defeat, what’s to stop Donald Trump from holing up in the White House and flat-out refusing to turn over the keys to Joe Biden?

Net effect… the real issues… e.g., climate change, free elections, nuclear disarmament, gun control, women’s rights, human rights, fair immigration laws, living wages, an equitable tax code, affordable housing, healthcare and prescription drugs etc.… will NEVER be dealt with in any meaningful way.

RE climate change… failure to deal with this burning issue, STAT, will lead to humanity’s eventual extinction. Little doubt, the last people left (more or less) standing will wind up writhing around in such agony that… as they suck in their last gasp of super-heated, toxified oxygen, they’ll likely even welcome their own deaths.

Net effect… the real issues will NEVER be dealt with in any meaningful way. Of course, what would any of that really matter, anymore, once the cockroaches inherit the Earth?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unimpeachable Conduct? (1 Quick Limerick #094)

 

Daft Don will rant and rave, Tweet, bleat and bellow,
That he was the “perfect”, phone call, placing fellow?
Yet, transcript facts do belie,
That conman’s contrived alibi,
His contempt of Congress, cloaks his belly, yellow.

 

 

 

 

 

I would like you to do us a favor, though (Take 2)

One of the problems with Donald J. Trump’s trying to shake down Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, is this issue does not resonate well with average Americans… i.e., it does not “hit home” close enough.

Seeing how Robert Mueller left it up to Congress to punish Trump for hobnobbing with Russians, and how Donny assumed (correctly) that nobody would dare to even try, he also took that to mean that he could do whatever he damned pleases. To that end… in no time flat… he was on the phone with Zelensky.

Now, seeing how he’ll likely wind up Impeached by House Democrats and Exonerated by Senate Republicans… well… he WILL Quid Pro Quo again… and Again… AND AGAIN.

And let’s say his next dirty deal (attempt at extortion) does hit home… and hit hard, the average people (like you and me). Check out this sadistic, domestic, purely HYPOTHETICAL scenario…

PREFACE: Meet the pharmaceutical pioneer, Doctor Adam Zellweger (no relation to actor Renée) who, following decades of painstaking research and clinical trials on volunteer human test subjects, has discovered the most efficacious drug ever conceived by humankind… i.e., the miracle medicine that’ll instantaneously wipe all Cancer off the face of the Earth. The FDA is mere moments away from approving this wonder drug when…

Donny, ravenous for campaign dollars (to fund the unconstitutional bid for his 2032 reelection), picks up the phone to make his congratulatory call to Zellweger.

Trump: I’m calling to applaud you Dr. Zellweger. What you’ve done is tremendous, almost as tremendous as my attracting the largest applauding Inauguration Day crowds in American History in 2017, 2021, 2025 and 2029. Now, I do know you’re still in need of FDA approval for your tremendous drug… and I do have the power to speed up that process.… but… uh… I would like you to do us a favor though.

Zellweger: And what might that be?

Trump: Initially, you are to donate a $100 million lump sum to my campaign, so I can run for a tremendous fifth term as your tremendous president. And then, once you get FDA approval, once the billions of bucks start rolling in, I’ll start siphoning off your profits. Now, as your tremendous president and benefactor, I believe my tremendous services to you… my yuge influence in this matter… is worthy of a split of the profits… oh… say… 90/10.

Zellweger: So, let me get this straight. No FDA approval till I agree to your terms? I’ll bet that 90% will be your cut, too, huh?

Trump: Take it or leave it Doctor Z.

Zellweger: Do you realize that your causing the FDA to drag its heels will subject millions of cancer patients to needless agony and death?

Trump: Hey, that’d be all your fault, not mine. To save their lives, all you need do is do us that favor.

Well, my readers, what if Dr. Z opts not to knuckle under to Trump’s pressure? And what if, someday, it will be you, me or one of our loved ones lying, crying and dying in that hospice bed?

Today’s hypothetical scenario could easily become tomorrow’s life or death, reality show.

Such a story amply demonstrates why a House Impeachment and a Senate Conviction / Ouster is in order… and long overdue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Fireside Chat’s Soot

 

So… what the hell is Donald J. Trump up to now? Well, looky here, he’s plotting to re-purpose the concept of FDR’s folksy, fatherly Fireside Chats. Yep, via a live TV broadcast, he intends to prove his innocence by reading, aloud, from that now infamous White House generated, “MEMORANDUM OF TELEPHONE CONVERSATION“.

How astoundingly ironic! This is the very document, which affords us the juicy details to the fake prez’s perfectly wrong “perfect phone call”… a.k.a. Donny’s quid pro quo, 07/25/2019, shake down of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

One would think that, by now, the Trumpster’s brain trust and/or wranglers would’ve reminded him that, strictly from the Fascist’s perspective, such fireplace flames are only suitable for one thing… burning up the body of truth (soon followed by the burying of the cremains).

Yet, here we find the fake prez actually believing he can chat himself out of trouble? True, he just might succeed if, in actuality, this is all leading up to his plea of insanity.

Beyond the ideological and legal aspects, let’s factor in the aesthetics… namely… Donny simply is not the fatherly, folksy type. Hell, had he been my father, I’d have run away from home as soon as I had learned to walk. Come to think of it, to escape such a toxic parental unit, I’d have even crawled as fast as my hands and knees could go.

Anyway, it’s way above the Trumpster’s pay-grade to even attempt to reassure and comfort us. No amount of his thick, dense, politically expedient, fireplace soot can ever hide his corruption and culpability.

Beyond that? A Fireside Chat does no good when it could only showcase Trump’s insufferable, undignified, unprofessional  whimpering and whining… his droning on and on and on… about his perfectly wrong, perfectly self-incriminating, perfectly worthy of impeachment “perfect phone call”.
