Tillerson Still Employed

T-Rexxon didn’t want the job, he’d said before

Yet he was Putin it, knowing nothing of war

“Secretary of State” holds no enjoyment 

So why did he agree to take on the employment

To boost a $500 billion oil deal

But he found Russian sanctions were hard to repeal

For the world press corps discerned his every turn

Now to quit this job he hadn’t bothered to learn 

Is proving a challenge— Trump won’t let him go

Rexxon is trapped in a surreality show

He had no choice but to speak thoughts out loud 

Then not deny it to the gathering crowd

Speaking of Trump, he said what we all knew 

“He’s a f***ing moron”— His words finally rang true 

Now he’s waiting and hoping to be shown the door

It seems Tillerson needs to insult Trump even more

The World According to Trump

Denial is a river that flows 

Through Nambia— which everyone knows

Is Africa, not the Middle East, 

Nor is Israel, I heard that at least,

Nambia is not in the U.S.

Puerto Rico though, who would have guessed,

Is, and yet they don’t get US aid

Not due to debt, as I yesterday said,

In truth the local population 

Is the problem and the causation 

Puerto Ricans, I would like to express 

Possess what I think is an excess 

Of what is called skin pigmentation 

If I could contact immigration

You might wonder how I got so smart

What’s in my chest in place of a heart

Like other racists I wasn’t born

To treat people with contempt and scorn

I learned my geography from the Klan

Well, my dad… just one supreme white man

Trump Dedicates Golf Trophy

“How many times can a man turn his head and pretend that he just doesn’t see? ~ Bob Dylan


We Have It Under Really Great Control” ~ Donald *J Trump, President of the United States  *(J is for jackass)

Donald Trump has cost tax paying citizens over $71 million, during his nine month presidency, on golf trips alone. This Sunday he spent in New Jersey, at the Liberty National Golf Course, attending the “Presidential Cup Gold Tournament.” 

Meanwhile, 3.4 million people in Puerto Rico are suffering from a lack of clean drinking water, they’re still without power, and are in desperate need of medication…one medical center has reported every patient in it’s ICU has died— every one. 

After posting over a dozen tweets on the great job he’s doing, POTUS 45 went to New Jersey for yet another golf tournament.

It was starting to look like he wasn’t going to do anything to help the people of Puerto Rico, but then Donald Trump surprised us all by dedicated the gold golf tournament trophy to all the hurricane victims in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, saying: “We have it under really great control.” 

Just what they need, a trophy. Perhaps they can use it to bail water. 

What is wrong with Donald Trump?

Why Not Impeach Trump Now?

“I’d like to send America’s hearts and prayers to the people of Puerto Rico” ~Donald Trump, Village Idiot

People are dying in hurricane stricken Puerto Rico while Donald Trump, who seemingly does not realize they are Americans, essentially ignores them.

Trump has been busy though: 

He’s engaged in really mean name calling with North Korea’s “Little Rocket Man” who topped that by calling Donald Trump a “dotard”— a person, especially an old person, exhibiting a decline in mental faculties; a weak-minded or foolish old person…sounds right to me.

But there’s more, Dotard is also busy picking fights with NFL players and contemplating the possibility of passing a law which would prevent players from kneeling during the National Anthem. 

Considering all Donald Trump has done wrong, while achieving nothing, why is he still in office? Sadly our forefathers didn’t provide for our common defense or promote our general welfare by stipulating in the constitution the possibility of impeaching a president solely based on stupidity. 

What did they stipulate?

Article II Section 4 of the US Constitution says— The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on Impeachment for Conviction of Treason, Bribery, or Other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Hmm…Donald Trump seems to have committed several of those offenses. 

  • Article 11, Section 2, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution says “The President…shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachable Offenses. Trump pardoned former Sheriff Joe Arpaio who had ignored a Court’s Injunction— impeachable. 
  • Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution, that prohibits the federal government from granting titles of nobility, and restricts members of the government from receiving gifts, emoluments, offices or titles from foreign states. Donald Trump has been on a mission of personal enrichment since elected. One example would be Trump selling Hotel rooms in DC to foreign heads of state.
  • The Ethics in Government Act, I know it’s an oxymoron, went into affect in 1978. It was a result Watergate, and the Saturday Night Massacre. It mandates, public disclosure of financial and employment history of public officials and their immediate family. It also restricts lobbying by public officials for a period after leaving public office. Oh, and it created the U.S. Office of Independent Counsel, tasked with investigating government officials (taxes)…Mueller? Mueller? Mueller? The idea of political ethics brings to my mind Donald Trump profiting from his secret service protection, by way of renting hotel rooms and apartments (at full price, paid by tax payers) to the secret service as they guard him and his family when they’re at one of his many properties. 
  • Article 3 of the United States Constitution—defines treason as specific acts, namely “levying War against [the United States], or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Whether Trump was personally involved, or he knew Russia was interfering with the 2016 presidential election and allowed it, either scenario makes him guilty of Treason. Additionally Russia engaged in a cyber attack against the U.S. likely with inside help. It has been called an act of war. Did Trump or his associates help? 
  • Obstruction of Justice was committed, not only by firing, but also by attempting to intimidate former FBI director James Comey while he was conducting an investigation on the afore mentioned Russian investigation. 
  • The Treaty Clause of Article II of the United States Constitution provides only the legislative branch, not the executive, has the power to initiate new military actions. —Trump ordered US forces to carry out unauthorized air strikes on Syria. 
  • The 25th Amendment Section 4 Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President. Maybe they did provide an idiot clause. 

    I’m sure I’m missing something, but you get the idea. There are more than enough reasons to impeach Donald Trump. 

    Several members of Congress have filed Articles of impeachment against Trump, so why isn’t anything happening? 


    Blind partisan loyalty by one miserable looking man, Rep Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is stonewalling impeachment hearings. Goodlatte has been sitting on articles of impeachment filed months ago. Until he launches a formal inquiry into Trump’s crimes, nothing will happen. 

    So, lets all call him at— (202) 225–5431 or contact him on Twitter: @RepGoodlatte, and tell him do do his job.

    How Do I Hate Thee? (POTUS 45) 

    A lot from Lydia ~

    How do I hate thee? Let me count the days.

    I hate thee even knowing quite soon thee might 

    Be led out in handcuffs, taken out of sight

    For Russian collusion, an invalid presidential race

    I hate thee and all thee three a.m.lying twitter communiqués

    Thee loser won, but ’tis climate change, the planet lost this fight.

    I hate thee freely, as expression is my First Amendment right.

    I hate thee covfefe in chief, for “alternate fact” is now a phrase.

    I hate thee White SuPresident, Putin’s muse

    For twenty one tampered states, for lost electoral faith.

    I hate thee for misogyny, racism, trumpery, treason, hypocrisy — choose 

    False cries of: “Russian Hoax” I hate thee as Mueller’s breath,

    Heats thee orange neck, exposing a traitorous life; and, if God choose,

    History shall hate thee better and forever after death.

    Trump Distracts Using NFL

    Donald Trump inadvertently sparked a national kneeling trend by his slanderous rhetoric at a rally in Alabama on Friday—

    “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!” ~Donald Trump

    NFL players peacefully protesting he calls “son of a bitch,” but violent white supremacists he calls “very fine people.”

    White Supresident Donald Trump followed the speech up with a typical Trump twitter tirade. (Not worth posting.) 

    So, why does he pick fights with NFL players, who are within their rights to protest?

    He is attempting to distract us from James Clappers proclamation on the very same Friday. Distraction is Trump’s modus operandi.


    “Our intelligence community assessment did, I think, serve to cast doubt on the legitimacy of his victory in the election,” ~Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper 

    Clapper continued—

    “I think that transcends, unfortunately, the real concern here, which is Russian interference in our political process, which by the way is going to continue,” 

    and Trump’s distractions work every time.
