Who Commissioned the Steele Dossier – A Limerick 

Today I would like to express

Trump’s denial tweets don’t impress

MI6 Agent Steele’s

Penned Dossier’s real

Who commissioned it? I can confess…

~

A power family, Republican

Against whom, early on, Trump did run

A dad and dad’s son 

Prez 43 and 41 

Shrub is their last name’s synonym

~

Yes, it was Jeb, and Trump knows it well

Lies based on fear have a distinct smell

The dossier’s proved true

Mueller’s using it too

Trump is nervous— it’s easy to tell

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.

    A Limerick for Sarah Hickabee [sic?] Sanders 

    To accuse Comey of crime…that’s inspired

    “Those are real reasons for why he was fired,” 

    Middle name…is it Hick?

    I hear banjo music

    When you speak Trump and “for why he” conspired

    Trey Gowdy is the New David Nunes.

    We have two government investigations simultaneously taking place, supposedly working toward the same goal, and yet one is actively working against the other to end both investigations.

    Remember former House Intel Committee Chief David Nunes? This past April, he held an impromptu press conference, without discussing his plans to do so with the committee, falsely backing up Trump’s “Obama wiretapped me” claim. 


    He was attempting to assist Trump in discrediting the FBI investigation, then led by former FBI Director James Comey, by falsely claiming their investigation was based on information gathered illegally when former President Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower. 

    Nunes seems to have disappeared, or been run out of town. He’s still there, although he kind of sort of recused himself (not really) from the committee. He retained the right to oversee committee subpoenas. 
    His behavior in April was illegal, and is part of the case against Trump and his staff’s repeated attempts to obstruct the investigation. 


    Trey Gowdy, who looks like a graduate of the ‘Harry Potter House of Slytherin’ (and also seems to be a fan of the ‘white power’ hand gesture), stepped into the leadership role left void by Nunes in the House Intel Committee investigation. 

    The House Intel Committee’s primary function seems not to be what they claim it is— to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election, but rather to obstruct and deflect and ultimately end the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. 

    The House has interviewed key witnesses, such as Kushner, Trump Jr, Paul Manafort, but only in closed sessions. The result, if not the purpose, to give witnesses the legal means to refuse Mueller’s subpoenas for transcripts of the interviews. Paul Manafort is currently doing just that. They testify behind closed doors for a committee that is actively working with Trump to withhold information, and neither the public nor the FBI have access to what transpires. 

    Now Gowdey, in his assignment to discredit Mueller’s investigation, is claiming the FBI used questionable information to legitimize the entire investigation: the Steele dossier. 

    Meanwhile Nunes, who has established himself as an agent for Trump, sent his aids in search of Daniel Steele hoping to intercept him before congress interviewed him. Their goal is to ultimately discredit him as well, and claim the entire investigation was based on the dossier- which is false. Most everything in the dossier has already been proven to be true, and what remains is reportedly soon to be proven true as well. 

    Gowdey has some carrots dangling in front of him: he has been next in line to replace Jeff Sessions, and he also wanted to replace Comey as FBI director.

    Hey GOP, why the coverup? Why is Manafort hiding his testimony? Innocent people do not hide or obstruct. Why doesn’t Donald want his taxes released? 

    Why does Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) want to cut funding to Muellers investigation?

    Why can’t Jeff Keebler Elf Sessions “recall” anything? 

    The GOP has proven, time and time again, their priority is— party over country. It’s them against us. Trump’s approval ratings don’t bode well for the GOP and re-elections for many are less than a year away. Odd that they seem unphased. Why aren’t they worried?

    In my opinion they are confident they will win whether they have the support of their constituents or not, thanks to gerrymandering (the manipulation of borders to increase the likelihood of one party winning), the Russian propaganda machine (hard at work here), voter registration log tampering (thousands of voters arrived at their polling stations where there were no records of them having registered), and tampering with the actual machines- (many cited cases of votes changing as they were cast). 

    Exit polls on the day of the presidential election, for the first time in their history, did not match up with results. No one batted an eye. The GOP seems to be more afraid of Trump’s friend Putin and his influence than the power of their voters. 

    Politics has always been corrupt. The level of corruption in the White House today eclipses anything we’ve seen before. If Trump isn’t removed from office prior to 2020 he’ll win a re-election—Putin will see to that. 

    I have a few simple proposals: hand counted paper ballots, end gerrymandering, abolish the electoral college. As citizens we need to reclaim the government. Mueller? Mueller? Mueller?
    Will the GOP survive Trump? Let’s hope not.

    Mueller? Mueller? Mueller? Are We There Yet?!

    Special counsel Robert Mueller is playing chess while Donald Trump plays… with his navel lint.

    Trump warned Mueller not to look into his personal finances. 

    Mueller, who is actively investigating Trump’s ties to Russia, began looking into Trump’s personal finances. 

    Last week Donald Trump tested his ability to pardon, without following protocol, by pardoning former Phoenix sheriff Arpaio who was indicted for ignoring a court order. Trump was sending a message, to those who are considering switching teams— he can pardon those who stay loyal.

    Mueller responded to the pardon by teaming up with New York and Virginia prosecutors, where alleged financial crimes took place, because the president can not pardon state convictions.

    As this investigation picks up steam new members of the GOP step in and try to thwart it. Last week Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis filed legislation to cut funding to the investigation if it continues beyond six months. What is he afraid of? Perhaps Mueller will look into that now. 

    Mueller has most recently enlisted the IRS to aid in his investigation: the IRS’ Criminal Investigations unit, which concentrates exclusively on financial crimes like tax evasion and money laundering. 

    Ties to Russian money and the timing of awareness of collusion may implicate many more than Trump and his family. Speculation is that once the investigation moves onto Pence obstruction will become a GOP team effort. 

    This is fun and everything, but I’m ready to move onto a new topic. Mueller? Mueller? Mueller? Are we there yet?

    Is Trump Still Obstructing?

    *These are my opinions, not facts, but based on facts. 

    05/09/2017: Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey, who had been investigating Russia’s interference in the presidential election, as well as the ties Trump’s associates have to Russia. Trump admitted, on national television, he fired Comey because of the investigation. Many say by doing so Trump committed the crime of obstruction of justice. 

    08/01/2017: Donald Trump’s appointed replacement for James Comey, Christopher Wray, was confirmed in the roll of FBI director. 

    08/12/2017: During a weekend long Nazi rally, in Charlottesville Virginia, a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of anti-Nazi protesters, several people are injured, one woman died.

    08/13/2017: Trump (likely golfing) said nothing.

    08/14/2017: Trump condemned both protesters and the white supremacist group. The Nazi’s celebrated, feeling empowered, as the rest of the world vehemently objected—all day.

    08/14/2017, that same night: Like a nine year old child whose parents force an apology, Trump read, in a monotone mumble, words condemning white supremacist groups. The Nazis became angered, because to use the words of KKK leader David Duke: “they put him in the White House.” The rest of the world was not impressed with Trump’s performance.

    08/15/2017: A leak. A former secret service agent’s friends on the inside reported that Donald Trump Organizations and Donald Trump himself were served with subpoenas by Robert Mueller, director of special council investigation into Trump Russia. Trump was enraged. – This was reported by one individual, and has not yet been confirmed.

    08/15/2017, the same day: Trump “went rogue” at a press conference, going off script and reaffirming his Nazi leanings, blaming both sides in what has yet to be called a domestic terrorist attack by a Nazi. 


    08/15/2017, still the same day:
    It was reported that Peter Strzok, a highly experienced veteran investigator, who specializes in counterintelligence for the FBI, whom had been hired by special counsel Robert Mueller to examine Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, was transferred to the FBI’s human services division—removed from the investigation.

    Putin it all together:

    1. Trump selects a new FBI director, possibly because he can be manipulated into tamping down the raging fire of Muellers Russia investigation. (opinion)
    2. Mueller investigates Trumps personal finances after Trump says “Mueller had better not investigate my personal finances.” 
    3. Trump is subpoenaed by Mueller. 
    4. Trump flies into an orange rage of fire and fury alienating all non Nazi Americans, and the non Nazi world. 
    5. Trump can’t fire Mueller, so he has his new FBI director hack away at the special council stating with—the guy whose name needs more vowels, Strzok.

    My conclusion: Comey had been investigating Trump / Russia, Strzok had become deeply involved in the same investigation, and both were essentially fired for getting too close to the truth. 

    I smell obstruction of justice.
