Trump, More of the Same

Trump knows one sure way to strike fear in the hearts of gullible Americans. Individual 1, xenophobe extraordinaire, typically holds rallies to maintain his fan base, but yesterday held a televised “address” during which he detailed certain crimes with surprising accuracy.

He was quite knowledgeable with regards to these crimes, especially considering he is a man who didn’t know Puerto Rico was a U.S. property, or that ID’s are not required to purchase cereal, or that Frederick Douglas is not currently among the living but likely fully decomposed having met his maker in the 19th century.

How does the moron know so much about criminal enterprises? He has first hand experience.

This is gaslighting by way of accusing others of his own sins.

Last night’s address was another exercise in fear mongering with the purpose of swaying public opinion. He desperately needs public opinion on his side because he is about to face charges for his lifetime of crime.

He claimed, in his own monosyllabic verbiage, immigrants are coming over the border to rape, pillage and plunder YOU. They’ll take YOUR job too… and lower YOUR wages.

Trump himself has been accused of rape, he’s pillaged government funds, he’s plundered regulations that safeguarded against pillaging by banks, energy companies, etc., he is accused of treason, tax fraud, misuse of election and charitable funds, racketeering, etc…

As far as immigrants taking your jobs, Trump knows all about that because he is an abuser of the H2B Visa program. (I’ve said this before.) He uses it to bring in foreign workers to staff his resorts and properties at extremely low wages.

“The H-2B program allows U.S. employers or U.S. agents who meet specific regulatory requirements to bring foreign nationals to the United States to fill temporary nonagricultural jobs. A U.S. employer, or U.S. agent as described in the regulations, must file Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker, on a prospective worker’s behalf.” ~ US Citizens and Immigration Services

By virtue of the government’s definition of the plan, the H2B Visa takes jobs from Americans. Trump increased the annual limit on this type of visa, for his own purposes, because he doesn’t want to pay Americans minimum wage.

In order to qualify for the program he is required to advertise his job openings prior to requesting visas, which he does. He has over a thousand applicants for job opening positions such as chef, bartenders servers, maids, landscapers, etc, but in 2017 he hired 1 American and 143 non-Americans using H2B Visas. Those are the numbers for only 3 of his properties. He says no Americans want those low wage jobs.

Meanwhile Trump has taken government workers hostage, withholding their pay, proving himself again to be a selfish and petty man.

Last night he feigned compassion, not for the government workers he’s jilting, but for the southern border. Perhaps in doing so he hopes win over a new group of supporters.

He said there is an “urgent, horrifying humanitarian crisis at the border.”

This is true; he’s causing it.

“You don’t even want to know what’s going on down there.”

Yes we do, tell us. I can name a few things off the top of my head:

  • In the last two years 22 immigrants have died while in ICE detention,
  • 2 migrant children died in custody in recent weeks.
  • 15,000 children are still being held in Trump’s detention centers.

Trump and Secretary Sanders have been tossing around the number 4000. That’s how many terrorists they claim attempted to cross the southern border into the U.S. last year. The real number is 6. (Meh, 4000, 6, so they were rounding up.) Of those six, how many triggered a stop due to nothing more than a name matching someone on the watch list? 6 on our southern border, but wait, what’s this? 41 have crossed via our Canadian border. Why no talk of a wall there? Make Canada pay for it! (sarcasm)

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen won’t commit to a number. She claims it’s is “extremely sensitive”.

Nielsen calls the southern border a “security crisis.” This is false.

Trump wants to declare a national emergency, exercise imminent domain to seize private homes along the border, for a fabricated crisis.

We are watching a cornered lifetime criminal grasp for anything that will distract and possibly change the tide of public opinion.

Put this in perspective: For two years Republicans ran both houses of Congress. Trump could have had his wall approved by his GOP partners in crime if it was that important to him. It was not important to him. He is distracting us, and the press, again.

Keep your eyes on Russia, money laundering, tax evasion, ricco. Trump is cornered.

Incidentally, Mitch McConnell’s could end the shut down, he chooses not to. Congress has the power to override the president. The requisite numbers are 290 in the House and 67 in the Senate.

I would like close this post with a Trump quote that has puzzled me since he uttered it on Sunday. It was with regards to his threats to declare a national emergency which would allow him to do anything without the policing of congress. He said:

“We are looking at it very strongly, we’re looking at a national emergency, because we have a national emergency.”~ Donald J Trump

(But what about the national emergency?) My question regarding the statement: How does one “look very strongly?” Would a furrowed brow while grunting qualify?

Joe Manchin Thinks it’s His Place to Apologize for an Unrelated Adult Woman

**This post contains profanity. It is not meant to be read by the pearl clutching faint of heart who are easily indisposed by the vapours.

W/VA Senator Joe Manchon, Republican in Democratic clothing, has been on the press circuit apologizing for a comment made by a new congresswoman, Democrat Rashida Tlaib.

Senator Manchin, who is not her father, is apologizing on her behalf for her use of the following statement- “We’re gonna impeach the motherfucker.”, “the motherfucker” in question being motherfucker Donald Trump.

Senator Joe Manchin was on FOX News, a Democratic Senator performing on GOP propaganda TV, calling her statement: “horrible,” “disgusting,” “deplorable.”

Side note: Senator Joe Manchin was the only Democrat who voted for blackout drunk frat boy, sexual predator, and repeated perjurer, Brett “I liked beer… I STILL LIKE BEER.” Kavanaugh, now sitting in a lifetime appointment in the Supreme Court.

Incidentally that SCOTUS appointment, that would not have passed without Manchin’s aye, mandates all 83 credible misconduct cases against him be dismissed… and they were:

Federal Panel Of Judges Dismisses All 83 Ethics Complaints Against Brett Kavanaugh

Here is what Manchin said with regards to his Kavanaugh vote:

Manchin also likes to say the word “shit”… a lot. Should we go through all curse words and assign them a value with regards to their offensiveness?

Also, and more importantly, Senator Joe Manchin has never condemned Donald Trump for his vulgar behavior. Need I repeat that motherfuckers long list of profanity, while bragging of sexual assault, or that used with regards to any who oppose him?

According to Manchin, and Trump, and the GOP, there are rules of decorum for women, especially those who are not of the Christian and lilly white genus, but there are no rules for Donald Trump, his GOP accomplices, or any of his sexual predator friends.

CEO of EpiPen Maker Mylan Sees 671% Compensation Increase In 8 Years

Remember the EpiPen price jump of 400%? I’ll remind you.

The lifesaving device, which contains $1’s worth of epinephrine, jumped to over $600… per pen. The device is sold in Canada for as low as $50.

Imposing said price hike of the lifesaving epinephrine device was Mylan Pharmaceutical’s CEO, Heather Bresch. She gave herself a raise for that move. Her annual salary rose 671%, from $2,453,456 to $18,931,068, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

By the end of 2017, continued public outcry over her pricing of EpiPen forced her to sell a generic version for $300.

CEO who gouged EpiPen price is daughter of Democratic senator

Whadda ya know, Bresch is Manchin’s daughter.

That’s not all. She is a tax evader.

Pop quiz time.

  1. Joe Manchin apologized to “all Americans, any sitting Congress person” for lawmaker Tlaib’s colorful call for Trump’s impeachment, but did he ever apologize for his daughter when she evaded taxes by moving her company out of the U.S., pocketing tens of millions of dollars in tax savings?
  2. Did Joe Manchin apologize when his daughter, Heather Bresch, endangered the lives of so many, when she priced them out of EpiPens?
  • Answer Key:
  • No to both.
  • Manchin slams ‘horrible’ comments from Dem calling for Trump impeachment: ‘So disgusting’
