Trump: Is it in his Kiss?


Image result for donald trump kiss gif

What is it about Donald John Trump?  That makes him so bloody irresistible that people discard every thing they know is true to get his approval?  Some go so far as to go to jail for this man.    A man who’s loyally is limited to his last name.

Well respected individuals who have spent decades building their personal brands only to have their credibility destroyed after working for the 45th President of the United States.

Sean Spicer, who was a well respected communication director for the Republican National Committee for nearly six years before becoming Trumps Press Secretary.  From day one, he was asked to lie about the size of Trumps Inauguration. The American Press was told to ignore what they see and believe the cow chunks he was attempting to sell.

Kelly Ann Conway, was largely responsible for Trumps presidential victory.  The woman is a power house, a political consultant, a strategist, who is largely responsible for the term “Alternative Facts” adopted by many Trumpers.   Ignore, your eyes,ears and focus on the possible alternatives.  Yes, I saw the bus run him over and kill him, however, it is possible, he died before the bus hit him.

One relationship, I will never understand and one that left many of us scratching our collective heads. Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump.   The only thing I can come up with is the two must be Lovers.   For years, Graham blasted Trump.   Graham was the late Senator John McCain of Arizona best friend and is Megan McCain’s Godfather. It must be sex. (Don’t picture it, you may never want to see again)

It there was one loyal friend who walked through the fire it was Jeff Sessions. His first Attorney General and former two term ator from Alabama was uber loyal to the President.  Not loyal enough to do Jail time.  During the confirmation hearings Sessions said he didn’t have contact with the Russians during presidential campaign.  How so nevah, the press said “Oh but you did!” Sessions recused himself from the Russian Investigation.  This set the Trumpster on fire!!! Any possible fix was gone and Session became enemy number one and endured many insults from the Prez.

Mother of three, a daughter of banjo playing preacher man. Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied to the press every single day.  The pearl necklace wearing lady was Sean Spicers replacement as the Press Secretary.    Mr’s Sanders admitted her sins during the Mueller probe.   While she later called it “A slip of the tongue” she lied about Comey and the FBI staffers not having confidence in him,  lied about Trump Jr and Russian adoptions and the list goes on…………

 3 who knew!

While the Trumpster may have a devastating kiss, there were a few who Immune and had their own agenda.  All of these individuals arrived at the White House dirty and they charmed Trump.

Actually there were four.  A Tide wash couldn’t whiten Mike Flynn’s whites.   Obama, and others warned Trump. This man is more than tainted he’s nasty!  The retired US Army Lieutenant General had a poor reputation.  After retirement as a consultant he took money from companies based in Russia. Before becoming the National Security Advisory Flynn told the Russians, the new Trump Administration would remove some the sanctions placed by the Obama Administration.  Even after Flynn’s conviction for lying, Trump remains loyal to him.   (His sentencing is pending)

Paul Manafort was beyond dingetta.  He is rumored to be a member of organized crime (some say for 30 years or more).  Manafort  has taken millions from the Ukraine, above and under the table. He is been under the watch of several governments for years.   Various stories say Trump and Manafort were casual acquaintances and Trump just hired him in early 2016.  It is believed, he wanted in the Trump Administration to benefit his interest in the Ukraine.   In jail, the 70 year old Manafort could be out by 2024.

 Those who Tape

Does anyone really know what Omarosa Manigault Newman’s job was in the White House?  Donald Trump’s favorite African American relationship began when she was a contestant on The Apprentice in 2004 . She took the role literally and probably knows the Trumpster best.  Like DT, she was a Democrat and Republican.   Like DT, she can be charismatic unless your black women.   Like DT, her credibility is routinely questioned.    On Oprah, she accused a cast mate on The Apprentice of calling her a nigger.  No one on the show could verify Omarosa’s account.

January 2018, Omarosa was fired, by John Kelly the White House Chief of Staff.   Reports say she didn’t go willingly.  She fought to see the President and was physically removed by the Secret Service.   She denied being fired, however, she went on Meet the Press and played a tape of her firing.

Turns out that wasn’t the only thing she taped. Shortly after, she appeared on the reality show Big Brother, where she suggested that country is in trouble with Trump at the helm.  Omarosa said, she would never vote for him again.

August 2018, Omarosa’s book about her time in the White House  “Unhinged” reached number one on the New York Times best seller in its second week.   In her book she says the President’s Cognitive functioning is declining.  Omarosa has called Trump a racist. She says there are tapes and that witnesses have confirmed the existence of tapes of Trump repeatedly saying “nigger ” during filming of The Apprentice.   So far, no one had come forward with of these tapes.   There are tapes of Lara Trump attempting to buy her silence.

If there was anyone devoted to Donald Trump it was his Michael Cohen.  Cohen was his personal Attorney from 2006 to 2018.  I don’t believe his children is as loyal as Michael Cohen.  He was once the Vice President of the Trump Corporation. He was willing to go the jail for Trump and then Trump turned on him.  Cohen who?  But Cohen made recordings of his conversations and while Bill Clinton lied about Monica, Cohen has receipts and copies of checks.  While Mueller couldn’t use the recordings, the copies and the checks.  New York Southern District Court could, and the court reportedly has everything and poses a much greater threat to Trump than Mueller’s Russian probe.  Next week, Michael Cohen begins his three year prison term.

William Barr was the Attorney General under George W Bush and he could have lived  his life outside the turbulent waters of the Trump the Administration.  In February, he waded in.  He seems to be.everything to the President, that Jeff Sessions wasn’t and it could cost him.  A few months later he finds himself in troubled waters.  Did he lie to Congress in April, when he said that” he didn’t know whether Special Council Robert Mueller supported his conclusions regarding the Russia Report?”   The New York Times reported Barr received a letter from Mueller indicating he was not satisfied with Barr’s conclusions.  In his letter, Mueller specifically says that Barr’s summary laying out the bottom-line conclusions of the report “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions.   

There are those who believe, he will be a no show and not appear in front of the House, tomorrow.   Should he not appear, he will be in contempt of Congress  That penalty comes with a fine and a maximum one year in jail.   If its is proven he lied to Congress , he could face up to five additional years in prison.

 

William Barr has several pensions, he didn’t need this job. Perhaps the kiss was too powerful! Maybe he wanted back into the game.  But home cheese is scared, rightfully so!  Senator Kamala Harris chewed him up and forced him to say, he hadn’t read the report.  Yikes!    Just think, he could have been at home, watching Maury!

Barr: Slow Dancing


Image result for gif old man dancing

 

Perhaps Attorney General William Barr knew what was ahead.   A few days ago, Barr  said he would not testify to the House Judiciary Committee today, if committee lawyers were allowed to ask follow up questions, a long standing practice.

In light of yesterday’s New York Times story, where we learned special counsel Robert Mueller sent a letter to Barr objecting to Barr’s early description of  the Russia investigation and his conclusion that appeared to clear President Trump.

What was the AG’s plan?  Copies of the Mueller report was hotter than tickets to the

After Barr’s short letter to the press, the world and the President Trump believed he had been exonerated.

But there were 446 more pages. 

Barr is slow dancing.  Refusing to answer reporters questions.  He has enrolled into the Sarah Huckabee Sanders school of media relations.

Not sure what the repercussions are for not testifying to the House Judiciary Committee.  But no worries,  Robert Mueller is waiting in the wings

Perhaps Barr has a wabbit to pull from his “what-evers”……

Best Friends

Lindsey Graham and John McCain were best friends.  Graham is Megan Mccain’s godfather.   Senator Graham has been largely silent as his best friend is being maligned by President Trump.

 

What about your friends, will they stand their ground,
Will they let you down again?
What about your friends, are they gonna be lowdown, 
Will they ever be around,
Or will they turn their backs on you?   

“What about your friends” written by Dallas Austin and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez (1992)

 

Hey Pot, get out much?


Image result for donald trump ilhan omar

I could go on for hours about the Pot’s (President Trump) racists comment for hours, but you and I don’t have that kind of time.

Racism in any form is unacceptable. Freshman, Congresswoman, Iihan Omar, the first Somali American elected to the house.  Her anti-semitic comments are not welcome. as she represents all Americans in her district.

Speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi called on her to apologize.

On Tuesday, Pot said Omar should resign or be barred from serving on congressional committees as punishment for her remarks on Israel.   Pot’s Vice President, said Omar’s apology was inadequate

House Majority Leader Steny Hover said Omar would not lose her assignments.

Nancy Pelosi dismissed the GOP calls for Omar’s punishment.  She said the GOP was not coming from a place with clean hands.   She reminded a reporter from CNN of Pot’s anti-Semitic comments and said:

“I think the administration owes a public apology for some of the things that were said there. As I heard the president speaking this morning, all that was going through my mind was “Jew-S-A, Jew-S-A” at his rallies that he never distanced himself from. They shouldn’t go down this path, they do not have clean hands.”

Yesterday, Omar responded to Pot, accusing him of “trafficking” in hate and intolerance.

“Think before you Tweet”

One of Omar critics is House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.  Last year, he Tweeted

Image result for kevin mccarthy jew tweet

The tweet included a video featuring McCarthy discussing George Soros, Tom Steyer and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, all Jewish men who are significant donors to Democratic campaigns and causes.

It invoked a stereotype about the Jewish faith that has long been considered to be an anti-Semitic dog whistle popular among the alt-right, and it’s a tactic that the president himself was accused of employing in his 2016 campaign

McCarthy denied expressing anti-Semitic undertones in a now-deleted tweet he posted before last year’s midterms that warned of three prominent Jewish Democratic donors trying to “buy” the election.

Warren: Trump ‘may not even be a free person’ by 2020


Image result for elizabeth warren iowa

(CNN)-President Donald Trump might be in jail by the time Election Day comes around, Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren said on her first full day of campaigning as a declared presidential candidate.

“By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be President,” Warren said to voters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, gathered at the Veterans Memorial Building. “In fact, he may not even be a free person.”
The moment marked a notable shift in tone for Warren, who has been reluctant to take on Trump directly by name since she announced her exploratory campaign on New Year’s Eve.
Warren elaborated on those comments to reporters at an event in Iowa City, pointing to the ongoing investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election by special counsel Robert Mueller.
“Well come on. How many investigations are there now? It’s no longer just the Mueller investigation,” Warren said. “They’re everywhere and these are serious investigations, so we’ll see what happens.’

Picture Vs Policy: Virginia Governor Ralph Northam Does the picture represent the man?


Image result for RALPH NOrtham BARACK OBAMA

So quick we are to judge. Who needs facts or details? One blip ,one bump and your career in over.   When my children were growing up, I would tell them its not what your say, its what you do.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam was young when he took a picture in Blackface standing next to someone in a Ku Klux Klan costume.   Both pictures are offensive to this blackman.     As difficult as its seems, there are people who are  racially tone deaf, even in 2019.   Usually individuals who live in mono,environments ( Megan Kelly comes to mind )  because these individuals have limited contact with people outside their communities, they are often shocked when they are called insensitive or racist, because they work with people of color.

There is a difference between working and socializing and this is where I struggle with the Governor, who graduated from a predominately black high school.   He reportedly has strong personal ties with blacks in Virginia.  So the picture is not only a shock to the black citizens of the state, but a surprise to his black friends.

As a flawed human being I try not to rush to judgement.  Throughout my life as a flawed human being, I have made some poor decisions in my youth and as an adult.  When he took the picture nearly 35 years ago, he wasn’t thinking about the impact that picture might have on his personal and professional career.

The Picture ,was published February 1, 2019 on the website  Big League Politics   . Big League Politics was founded by former Breitbart News Employees and is considered a far right wing conservative website.

Is the picture a representation of who is Governor Northam is? 

In Virginia’s 2017 Gubernatorial election, Ralph Northam received an estimated 87% of the black vote, 67% of the Latino Vote and 61% of the women’s vote.  He was supported by many groups notably  the Latino Victory Fund and Planned Parenthood and support by many black political organizations,  most are now asking the Governor to resign.

His Positions:

The Governor supports a $15.00 minimum wage and is against a state constitutional amendment enshrining right to work legislation. That would allow employees in unionized workplaces are banned from negotiating contracts which require all members who benefit from the union contract to contribute to the costs of union representation. 

Northam “has called for phasing out the grocery tax on low-income people and ending business taxes in struggling rural areas.

The Governor as a record of supporting Abortion rights, ( Planned Parenthood supported him in his election campaign)  He is against a bill called the Repeal Act that would allow third trimester abortions to be performed if a single physician determines that there is any physical or mental health risk to the mother. Currently, Virginia law only allows third-trimester abortions to be performed in the state if three physicians determine that continued pregnancy would be “substantially and irremediably” harmful to a woman’s health.  This bill is supported by many Republicans and may be a topic in the 2020 Presidential Campaign.  

Northam has proposed making it free for students to pursue a community college education or apprenticeship in a high-demand field (such as cyber security and early childhood education under the condition that they commit to a year of paid public service. He opposes public funding for private schools. (wiki)

In February 2017, Northam cast a tie-breaking vote in the state Senate against a bill to ban sanctuary cities in Virginia

In Washington Post, Article Titled  “Anger and sadness as African Americans in Virginia consider Northam’s fate”

In conversations at churches, salons and coffee shops, African Americans disagreed about whether Northam must resign, but all voiced a sense of betrayal. In public office, Northam worked to expand Medicaid, the health program that serves the poor, and he helped to restore voting rights for felons, a policy that helps many black men. Many in the black community saw him as an ally, and as one of the good guys.

It’s a real slap in the face. You pretend to be my friend, and you’re really not,” said Thomas Parham Jr., as he arrived for worship Sunday at the historic Alfred Street Baptist Church in Old Town Alexandria. It’s one thing, he said, to encounter a racist public official. It’s almost worse when it’s someone perceived to be an ally. “I’d rather know where you stand.”

The Democratic Party Image

What is disconcerting about this controversy. is the Democratic tidal wave against this Governor.  Not based on his record, or actions or public statements but a silly misguided picture taken when he was in medical school.

Governor Northam is no Steve King the Congressman from Iowa. Who, for more than thirteen years has on record said:

 “Mixing culture will not lead to higher quality of life but a lower one.

 He wanted to make English the official language of Iowa.

He sued Iowa for posting voting information on an official website in Spanish, Laotian, Bosnian and Vietnamese.

King suggested shocking (via electricity) immigrants who climbed the wall.its successful in containing livestock

One the house floor, he said Profiling was an important component of law enforcement.

Suggested paying for the border wall with federal dollars coming from welfare, food stamps and Planned Parenthood

January 2019:  Steve King was stripped from all committee assignments after bipartisan condemnation of his remarks on white supremacy (A theme of his for the last 10 years)

From my chair in the balcony, the Democrats want to demonstrate they unlike ,the GOP they walk the talk.   I am reminded of Minnesota Senator Al Frankel who admitted and apologized to sexual misconduct when he was a citizen in 2006, his apology was accepted.  However when other anonymous woman came forward. he denied the accusations.  Members of his party demanded he resign without a full hearing.

In his resignation speech he made comparisons to Republican politicians, saying he was “aware of the irony” that President Trump remained in office despite the comments Trump made in the Access Hollywood tape released a month before his election, and that the Republican Party supported Roy Moore‘s Senate campaign despite the many allegations of harassment and molestation against Moore (wiki)

 

Self Inflected Wound

Governor Northam may have been flying solo (without council) when the news broke Friday Afternoon.  A good publicist would have advised and prepared him before appearing on camera.  However, as bad as Friday was, Saturday was a tsunami of bad press.

On Friday, he was almost there.  He apologized for the pictures and went on to say  “I recognize that it will take time and serious effort to heal the damage this conduct has caused. I am ready to do that important work”.  Someone, from his office might have spoken to the press, touting his record, his reputation with the black community and the suspicious timing of the picture,

Over night, they may have linked release of the picture to the date of his comment regarding his position on the Repeal Act  and reminded the press of his reputation. 

But that didn’t happen!  Flying solo, taking a page out of Donald Trumps playbook.  He said, that may not be me?  and like the 45th President of the United States, he was unable to stop himself.  He admitted, “Blackfacing” in the past AS Michael Jackson.  A talent contest that he WON, after practicing the moon walk!

The “State” of Virginia 

Should the Governor resign, the Democratic Lieutenant Governor, Justin Fairfax would become the Governor.

Sunday, February 3,   Patrick Howley of the conservative website  Big League Politics . reported Vanessa Tyson, a professor of politics at Scripps College, said she was sexually assaulted in 2004 by a campaign staffer who was now up for a “VERY BIG promotion” in Democratic politics. Howley, who was also the first to obtain the Northam yearbook photo, noted that Fairfax was a campaign staffer for presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004 and that he was now poised to become governor of Virginia. 

It is reported, she brought her 2004 story to the Washington Post and another media outlet.  Both outlets investigated the story and found no corroboration and did not publish the story.

In the State of Virginia, if the Lieutenant Governor is ineligible, it would fall to the Attorney General, Mark Herring a Democrat. If he for any reason can’t serve,it would fall   to the Speaker of the House of Delegates would be next in line to take the role. The Virginia House is currently controlled by Republicans and Speaker Kirk Cox would be the interim governor.

Slow Down The Train……

The Democratic Party and the citizens on Virginia, should slow the train down. Dont solely judge the Governor on this picture.   Judge is life from there forward. What has he said?  What has he done?   Then look hard at the coincident via Big League Politics before rushing to judgement.

Wouldn’t you want someone to judge you on your complete body of work rather than one picture or a single incident.?

Build the Wall with Porn Fees?


Related image

Miss Gail says yes………

Arizona State Representative Gail Griffin, wants a wall and wants to charge Arizonans twenty bucks to look at porn on the net.

If her proposed House Bill 2444 passes, Arizona would require companies that make or sell electronic devices in the Grand Canyon State to install software that blocks porn.

To remove the block,you just need to prove that your 18 and give them a non-stick twenty.  Payable to the Arizona Commerce Authority.

The money would go into a newly created account called the John McCain Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Fund and the mo-nay would be used to build a big beautiful border wall between Mexico and Arizona.  To keep those super cars unique to Met-he-co and those the duct taped women (that no person working at the border has seen before) and those gang member out of Arizona .

Only in the mind of the Trumpster would terrorist choose to fly into Mexico where there are walls instead of wall-less Canada. .

Other legislators, from states more than a thousand miles from the Mexican border are proposing state taxes to help the President with his vision.

As they say in Venezuela, buena suerte !
