Trump Junior Goes to India

I am frequently disheartened by what I read in the news, and often angered, but sometimes I smile. Among todays headlines affecting my mood—

Rudy Giuliani— There is a reason he isn’t working for the White House.

It’s anyone’s guess how will he take the news.

Jared Kushner, who lied on his FBI security clearance application countless times, still enjoys full access to highly classified information.

John Kelly, seemed intent on revoking Kushner’s temporary clearance status of 13 months, but appears to have changed his mind.

“As I told Jared days ago, I have full confidence in his ability to continue performing his duties in his foreign policy portfolio including overseeing our Israeli-Palestinian peace effort and serving as an integral part of our relationship with Mexico.” ~ John Kelly

Democrat Linda Belcher, of Bullitt County District in Kentucky, flipped the latest congressional seat from red to blue this week in a 2 to 1 landslide. This adds to wins in Florida, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Missouri, Wisconsin and etc. Republicans would be wise to take this as a reminder that they work for the citizens who elect them, and not the lobbyists who bribe them.

  • The well spoken survivors of the latest school shooting are getting more attention than the NRA would like. The Florida high school massacre that left 17 of their classmates and teachers dead, turned students into activists intent on ending the epidemic plaguing American schools, and internet trolls have taken them on. The students goal is to ban assault rifles and reinstate the bill restricting the mentally ill from obtaining guns- the same bill Trump eliminated a year ago. Donald Trump, and Junior have fed the attacks on Twitter, ranging from calling the students “crisis actors”, to accusing their parents of putting words in their mouths. Wasn’t Melania going to combat internet bullying?

• And finally, speaking of Junior, Donald Trump Junior took AirForce One and several members of the secret service to India Tuesday, on tax payers dime, in order to pitch Trump Condos. Hey, that’s my money!

Article 1 Section 9 Clause 8 of the United States Constitution states—

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Clearly, it is mandated by the constitution, Donald Trump can not profit from his position as potus… except to change tax laws, benefitting golf course owners, in his favor.

If Jimmy Carter sold his peanut farm when he was elected…

“Even though I am not mandated by law to do so, I will be leaving my businesses before January 20th so that I can focus full time on the presidency,” ~ Potus Elect Trump

Wait, what? He is mandated by law, ffs. Trump didn’t put his businesses in a blind trust like he promised. Instead he put Dumb and Dumber (Eric and Don Junior) in charge.

So as to not violate the Emoluments Clause of the constitution, slick, spray tanned, trust fund riding Junior Trump, has supposedly taken over the Trump family business, so the bigger, oranger, and more bigly corrupt Trump can “work” for Russia America.

The trip has been long advertised in Indian newspapers promising buyers opportunities to-

“Join Mr. Donald Trump Jr. for a conversation and dinner.”

And in a full page ad—

“Trump is here. Are you invited?”

Upon arrival Don Junior commented that he likes that the poor people in India smile. These same poor people he and his family exploit with slave wages and toxic working conditions in order to make Trump brand products from stolen designs at rock bottom manufacturing costs… they smiled at him, and he likes it.

Who elected junior anyway? I don’t even know who elected big Trump, but my point is, why is Junior making political speeches on this work trip that we are paying for? What political speeches?

This Friday, while in India, Junior is set to deliver a speech on Indo-Pacific relations. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also be speaking at this summit.

I need a Valium.

Statistics Show — Guns Do Kill People

Trump calls for flags to fly at half-staff in response to South Florida school shooting, after he blames the victims.

That response, along with his “thoughts and prayers,” set the NRA back $21,000,000 in Trump campaign donations.

*Fun Fact* The shooter trained with Trump’s people, white supremacists.

GOP Florida Senator Mark Rubio says shooters “will find a way to get the gun.” He also says “gun restrictions would not have prevented the mass shooting” at a high school in his home state.

That response was purchased by the NRA for $176,030 in campaign donations in 2016.

Senator Thom Tillis has earned $169,923 NRA dollars… “thoughts and prayers.”

Paul Ryan says: “Don’t make Florida school shooting conversation about taking away people’s guns.” — NRA paid $171,977 for that sentiment.

Ted Cruz says— “The reaction of Democrats to any tragedy is to try to politicize it. So they immediately start calling that we’ve got to take away the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.”

Cruz also says the families of victims don’t want tougher gun laws, and he sends them thoughts and prayers.

The cost of Ted Cruz’s sentiment, paid by the NRA— $360,727 in 2016.

I would venture to say the families of the victims don’t want Ted Cruz’s thoughts and prayers.

Someone tell Ted Cruz

  • 80% of Americans support bans on assault-style weapons.
  • 90% support tougher background checks.

The NRA pumped $1,865,924 into congress in 2016, and they get what they pay for in loyalty.

In the U.S., where the NRA owns the government, there have been 18 school shootings since January 1.

Yes, that is 35 days.

In the rest of the world, where the NRA does not own the government, there have been a total of 18 school shootings in the past twenty years.

The NRA says “guns don’t kill people.” We could say the NRA kills people, or we could say the GOP kills people.

Congress uses the 2nd amendment to defend their refusal to change gun laws.

The 2nd amendment was written during the time of single shot muzzle loaded rifles. Would they have argued for the right to bear assault rifles?

The weapon of choice this week in Parkland Florida was an AR-15 assault rifle.

The assault rifle was invented in 1964.

If four or more victims are killed in a shooting, it is categorized as a “mass shooting. The number of US school mass shooting deaths using assault rifles between 1964 – Present: 456.

Stop sending thoughts and prayers, send reform.

Today’s Curious News… a limerick

Rob Porters has a latest excuse

That his ex-wife’s black eye was a ruse

It was due to a fall

Not a physical brawl

She’s clumsy, it wasn’t abuse

~~~~~

First Trump’s lawyer called Stormy (porn star) “Fake News”

Now Michael Cohen’s claim in interviews,

He paid her off —this is funny—

With his personal money

Doesn’t his money come from Trump? I’m confused

~~~~~

FOX news interviewed Paul Ryan

He was impassioned, selling his new line

“We have a deficit crisis”

Due to medical prices

Entitlements must go- Can we blame him for trying?

~~~~~

He was paid-off, so blame him we can

For this deficit he was the frontman

He gave to the rich

Now the son of a bitch

Will kick grandma to the curb… as he’d planned

~~~~~

My last suspicious story today

Russian Sanctions, which were by the way,

Voted congressionally

By a Supermajority

Why aren’t we up in arms at their continued delay?

Trump Math Quiz

https://apple.news/A5jyd54QkQNOfRYCGbZpAPQ

Close your books, we are taking a quiz—

There are 144 seasonal job openings in 3 of Donald J(ackass) Trump’s 17 resorts. 143 of those jobs are awarded to foreign workers.

Question: How many Americans did Trump hire as seasonal workers in those 3 resorts?

Answer: 1

Your math is correct, 1 US worker was hired.

Now the essay portion of the quiz—

Why would a self professed billionaire, who claims an allegiance to his country, who desperately wants to build a wall, and who regularly tears families appart in order to deport non citizens… why would he import unskilled foreign workers, rather than hire American?

There is one correct answer—

Hint: The same answer could be used for the question— Why are Trump products manufactured overseas rather than in the US?

Answer: Donald Trump’s only allegiance is to his bank account, and by exploiting unskilled foreign workers, underpaying them and not providing them benefits, Trump makes more money for Trump.

Trump abuses the H-2B program, which was initially intended to hire farm workers at harvest time, claiming no American workers want his jobs— as servers, cooks, housekeepers, and bartenders, in order to avoid paying Americans a living wage and benefits.

He advertises job openings, on the down low, and then waits the specified amount of time before applying for the visas.

Trump’s Department of Labor expanded visa limit for the program. The pre-Trump allotment for “guest workers” was 66,000, now it is 81,000. These visas are awarded on a first come first serve basis, and you can bet Donald Trump Enterprises are first in line.

Final Question:

Is “America First” for Donald Trump?

Answer:

No, America is third, after wallet and Russia.

Putin, Putin, Putin… a limerick

The middle “Brady Bunch” girl, Donald Trump

Is misunderstood, sad, in a slump

His big sister Vlad

Hogs attention, it’s SAD!

It’s understandable he’s such a grump

Great numbers for his billionaire friends!

For the rest of us on poverty’s end

Of the new tax scale

Keep checking the mail

For the refund they’ll never send.

Paul Ryan was paid off the day after

The tax bill was made law… hear the laughter?

Koch paid a half mil

What’s better still?

Ryan pitched it, Koch was the drafter

$500,000— Shall we calculate,

52 weeks, in a year- no debate

$9,615.

Per-week, it’s obscene

Ryan works for whom? What’s his new tax-rate?
