Trump Tries a New Story on for Size

“I think Comey was the ringleader of this whole den of thieves. It was a den of thieves they were plotting against my election. Probably it’s never happened like that in terms of intelligence and in terms of anything else — but they were actually plotting against my election.” Donald J Trump June 16, 2017

The man lies knowing full well there is proof on film that he is lying.

https://youtu.be/8mKxeo67fn4

Why does he continue to lie so blatantly? Because it works. His tactic of repeating lies until they are accepted as fact got him elected. And they keep his “people sitting up at attention when he speaks,” just like North Koreans do with Kim Jong Un.

I saw some unsettling numbers yesterday regarding this “Trump, Rusherrr investigation”:

  • 59% of voters don’t know about the indictments & guilty pleas
  • Mueller’s approval rating is, at an all time low, 32%
  • Only 53% of voters believe Mueller is conducting a fair investigation

Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

Let’s remind those people, shall we?

There have been over 100 charges filed against 20 people, and 3 companies.

More specifically:

  • Mike Flynn, convicted
  • Rick Gates, convicted
  • George Papadopoulos, convicted
  • Alex Van der zwaan, convicted
  • Paul Manafort, indicted and jailed
  • Robert Cohen, expected to cooperate
  • Felix Sater, expected to cooperate
  • George Nader, cooperating
  • Richard Pinedo, cooperating

Then there are those who have perjured themselves:

  • Trump Jr,
  • Jeff Sessions,
  • Eric Prince

For those who missed the news yesterday, Paul Manafort is no longer on house arrest. He traded in his ankle bracelets for an orange jumper, because was found to have been in contact with witnesses in the investigation… witness tampering.

Trump and Giuliani are now waving pardons in front of Paul Manafort before he’s even convicted, no doubt in attempt to keep him from cooperating with the prosecution. This is also witness tampering.

Paul Manafort’s crimes are both State and Federal, and State charges can not be pardoned by the president. I’d bet my tax cut (🙄) that Mueller is aware of this, as is the New York Attorney General.

But why would an innocent man need to be pardoned?

For an innocent man, Trump has put a lot of thought into pardoning himself.

New York State also has Trump and his family in an unpardonable net:

That the disinformation campaign continues to sway public opinion is mind boggling.

We are at war. Disinformation continues to spread unchecked. Russia is in the White House. The Kremlin has influenced most of the GOP, to the extent that they continue to push for an end the Mueller investigation.

Who wants to end an investigation that has been so successful in such a short period of time?

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Devin Nunes (R-Calif), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Orin Hatch (R-UT), Mitch McConnell, (R-Kentucky)… just to name a few.

They say it’s costly and distracting. That $17 million spent in a little over a year is distracting our dotard.

Many members of the GOP still in office, (like Mitch McDonnell and Orin Hatch), had the opposite sentiment with regards to Iran Contra investigation which cost tax payers $47 million, and the White Water investigation which cost $52 million. The duration of each of those investigations was 5 years. Did I mention those investigations were unsuccessful?

So, what’s my point?

We need to educate those who are unaware of Mueller’s success to date. Spread the word. Wake these people up. November 2018 is just around the corner, let’s not let history repeat itself.

A Drop in the Bucket, Donald… a poem

Trump complains about Mueller’s expenses

$17 million and not without consequences

75 criminal charges have been brought

Against 22 defendants… and plea deals sought

Of those defendants now charged, 5 have pled guilty

1 so far has been sentenced… no “hoax” here to see”

How idiotic would a traitor have to be

To plead guilty to a hoax? Explain this to me.

In contrast:

Potus 45 in office 16 months to date

110 days golfing, is this worth debate?

Golf cost to taxpayers: $67 mill plus

Math is important, even to the treasonous

Trump Golf Count

67-17=$50 million more

Spent on golf than Mueller so, shut the front door

On Trump’s behalf let us compare witch hunts or yore

Do not let this distract from the current trade war:

Iran-Contra: $47 million.

Ken Starr: $52 million.

~~

$17 mill Mueller spent, compare and contrast

The budget price, as to $15 trill, is vast

The cost Trump’s tax cut added to the deficit

Which top 1% and corporations collect

~~

Donald was Put-In to power, not by US

The GOP turns a blind eye, (rhyme-word) treasonous

Someday those of us who did not purchase red hats

Will look back on these days and think… WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?

Donald Trump, Another Day

Whether you think bombing Syria was warranted or not, Donald Trump’s decision to launch airstrikes without the approval of congress was illegal. I think even Trump would agree with that statement… were he not the potus of whom I speak.

And just like that, the awesome force of a US airstrike succeeded in redirecting worldwide news away from Trump’s attorney Michal I (I’veNeverBeenToPragueInMyLife) Cohen, and onto Damascus. Forgotten was the newest piece of evidence that the Christopher Steele dossier is legitimate. Cohen strategized in Prague with Russians to hand Trump the election. There was indeed coordination between the Trump organization and Russia.

The amount of evidence seized during the raid of Cohen’s offices further substantiate the criminal investigation he is the subject of— travel records, financial transactions, communications, audio recordings, etc, are in the hands of the FBI and, even more troubling to Trump’s advisors, these are also in the hands of the state of New York. Why is that more troubling? Trump’s jurisdiction to pardon those convicted of crimes does not extend to state crimes.

Like many people around the world, I am suspicious of everything Trump says and does, but even he wouldn’t be so despicable as to carry out an unauthorized bombing for purposes of distracting the press from his lifetime of crime, conspiring with an enemy state, multiple sex crimes and scandals… who would even think of doing something so horrible as risking the lives of innocent children for selfish reasons?

We have a system of checks and balances, in the constitution, meant to protect us from the machinations of a single lunatic president. Trump has systematically removed anyone who might act as a barrier between him and… oh, let’s say bombing Syria on any given Friday, and perhaps nuking North Korea on a random Tuesday.

But, perhaps everyone in the administration isn’t heartless.

“I’ve never seen refugees as traumatized as coming out of Syria. It’s got to end.”~ Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis

That’s nice, Jim, but the numbers pertaining to Syrian refugees admitted to the United States are… not so much:

2016: 15,479

2017: 3,024

2018: 11

Adding to Trump’s bad day, the publicity tour to mark the publication of James L (LordyIHopeThereAreTapes) Comey’s **book, about Trump. Yes, I have placed my order.

Let’s pretend Trump didn’t bomb Syria to distract us from the Cohen news and the Comey book, what else might he want to distract us from?

While the press watched the light show over Damascus, preparations were made to fire Rod Rosenstein, the only man who can legally fire Robert Mueller but will not do so.

Bob W (WillNotSeekRe-Election) Goodlate, Trey S (Slytherin) Gowdy, and Devin M (Memo) Nunes, are demanding Rosenstein turn over evidence in the Mueller investigation… or else.

Rosenstein is left with a choice, he either gives Mueller’s sensitive evidence to these three obstructionists or he’s fired and replaced by someone who is willing to end the Mueller investigation.

Trump continues to fight the inevitable end of his criminal life and presidency long after even Nixon would have resigned. Trump will have to be physically removed from office. He’ll never leave voluntarily because he believes the presidency is keeping him out of jail. 🤔

On the bright side, let’s review the progress Robert Mueller has made to date:

  • National Security Advisor Michael L (LockHerUp) Flynn has flipped
  • Trump’s deputy campaign chairman Richard Gates has flipped
  • Trump’s campaign chair Paul Manafort: indicted on thousands of counts (slight exaggeration)
  • NRA is under FBI investigation for it’s ties to Russian money
  • Republican National Committee deputy finance chair Elliot Broidy is likely under FBI investigation
  • The findings during the raid of Michael Cohen’s offices include taped phone conversations, which are as good as a Cohen acting as a cooperating witness.

It may not seem like it, but here is a glimmer of light ahead. Some say we’re in the ninth inning. I hate sports, so let’s call this the spin cycle, or we could say the landing gear is down, the elevator doors are about to open, mind the gap, the check’s in the mail, the color will match when the paint is dry, the after dinner mints are on the credit card tray…maybe we’re not not quite that far along, but we’re getting there.

**James Comey’s book, “A Higher Loyalty,” will be released on April 17, May be purchased on Amazon, who will use their delivery boy, USPS to bring the book to your door.

A Pardon Won’t Help

It has been widely reported this week that Trump’s (former) Attorney, Frank Dowd, floated the idea of blanket pardons for Mike L(LockHerUp) Flynn and Paul W(WorksForPutin) Manafort, although he denies it.

A blanket pardon for both Manafort and Flynn… how warm and fuzzy, but I think they should have their own, incase they don’t get to share a cell. Why doesn’t the prison provide blankets anyway?

They do? Well then… that isn’t… a blanket… okay relax, hold on.

Google says a blanket pardon refers to the fact that the president has the authority to pardon any and all crimes, from treason, to tax fraud, to money laundering, to sex trafficking, even murder, at any point before or after conviction.

As with everything pertaining to Trump, there is a big butt—

  • Butt, Trump can not pardon himself.
  • Butt, any pardon he issues at this stage of the game might be seen as witness tampering or obstruction of justice. (Which is why Dowd denies having considered it.)

And the biggest butt of all…

  • Butt, Trump’s “absolute authority” doesn’t protect said traitors from state charges.

Money laundering charges in the state of New York could put Manafort away for life. Flynn, Don Jr. and Kushner all committed crimes on the state level as well.

The fact that Mueller has only brought forward one set of charges, mostly financial crimes committed prior to the campaign, is a hint that he might be (he is), saving other charges for prosecutors on the state level. Like what? Maybe… tax fraud, soliciting stolen goods, soliciting or conspiring to hack computers, I don’t know.

Mueller has met with New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and New York district attorneys on many occasions, and it would be safe to assume they are coordinating efforts, since a person can only be charged once for the same crime.

It is no secret there is no love lost between New York States Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Donald Trump. (Does anyone in New York like Donald Trump?) My point is, while Trump May control the GOP Congress, that capacitation will not extend to New York.

Trump’s public contemplation of what his power to pardon means to anyone who might be tempted to accept a plea deal, is not taking state charges into consideration.

Trump can not bribe witnesses, with the promise of a pardon, to not take a plea deal from Mueller. Hopefully Trump will find an attorney who can explain this to him in monosyllabic English.

Blankets might not be a bad parting gift.

Trump’s Succession… a poem

A long year ago

Trump’s succession was settled

Pence ruled himself out

Saying Flynn hadn’t meddled

~

House Speaker Ryan

Caught on tape accepting

Russian bribes, next up

Orin Hatch intercepting

A wee bit senile,

Wears invisible glasses

His old white male leanings

Define what an ass is

~

Now it seems Trump

May endure past November

Which is when midterms

Weed out red congress members

~

After that, the House

Will be controlled by the Dems

Their first big task to

Select a new speaker… then

~

What happens is key

Donald Trump is impeached

VP Pence ousted

The House speaker is reached

~

Now imagine the

Gems stable genius would tweet

If Dems chose Clinton

To fill the House Speaker seat

~

If the GOP

Had a whole brain between them

Trump would be long gone

Before November mayhem

Trump Can Pardon, So What’s the Point?

Not knowing makes for a good nights sleep. (Ignorance is bliss.) I should never read. I recently read a disquieting article, so ominous, I stayed up all night researching the subject.

My studies left me with no doubt, the conclusion is incontrovertible. Donald J(Jackass) Trump can pardon any American citizen, before trial, after trial, inside, outside, upside down, inside out… he can pardon any American citizen at any point. (<period) Trump practiced this super power by pardoning Sheriff Joe Arpaio who was guilty of criminal contempt of court. It worked.

Trump’s ability to pardon any American citizen means even he himself sits dry under that big black umbrella.

So what’s the point of all this then? Why are we waiting with bated breath for the Mueller/Russia investigation to get the bad guys… for the last dominoes to fall?

I consider the implications. If I, (not an attorney), can easily access this information we can bet any idiot in Trump’s camp knows it as well and has passed on the information to him. (Perhaps in the form of an easy to understand pop-up picture book.)

Although Potus Trump’s behavior has always defied logic, this does explain the cocky arrogance of both Don Jr (“we didn’t meet with Russians”, “we met with them but about adoptions”, “we met with them about sanctions, but not Hillary”, we met with them to get dirt on Hillary, but nothing happened”, “it’s a hoax”, “it’s not a hoax, but there was no collusion”…) and Jared D(Doesn’tTalkDueToHeliumVoice)Kushner. They know they have (a trump card), a presidential pardon in their back pockets, regardless of the suspect legitimacy of said president.

The 13 Russian nationals recently indicted are not pardonable, as they are not US citizens, so they may as well get settled and form a prison clique.

If all is hopeless, 😩 why isn’t Robert Mueller a rocket scientist instead of a Fed? He could have been a neurosurgeon. He’s tall, couldn’t he have played professional basketball? Why dedicate your life’s work to an ill fated proposition?

Hold onto your spray tan nozzle, because Robert Mueller knows the law better than most. He certainly knows it better than my sensei— Google. This is what he does, and according to my sensei— Google, he’s the best there is. While Donald Trump knows the In-N-Out Burger, Robert Mueller understands the law, including the ins and outs of executive privilege.

As it happens, although Flynn, Manafort, Gates, Papadopoulos, did commit a dizzying number of federal crimes— bank fraud, money laundering, RICO (organized crime), conspiracy against the US, “willfully and knowingly making false, fictitious and fraudulent statements (lying) to the FBI regarding conversations with Russia’s ambassador, treason, etc…,

they also committed State (I ❤️ NY) crimes, and guess what…

State crimes are NOT subject to executive clemency. (Snap.)

This explains the plea deals. So far George W(WoreAwire)Papadopoulos, and Michael L(LockHerup)Flynn, are on the copoperating with Mueller prison sentence plan. Now joining them, please welcome campaign staffer Rick S(ScrewManafort) Gates, pleading guilty for fraud and testifying against Paul N(NoChoiceLeftButPleaDeal) Manafort.

That makes four guilty pleas in the probe, and all four members of Trump’s team will offer testimony leading to Trump’s indictment.

That brings us to a grand total of 17 indictments so far, & still counting. This is traitor dominoes and after our patience, waiting as Mueller carefully works lining them up, we get to watch them fall. I recently heard an educated guess that, by the end of the investigation, 85 people will be indicted. That number is reasonable when you consider Nixon’s Watergate scandal resulted in the indictment of 69 people, with trials or pleas resulting in 48 being found guilty, many of whom were top Nixon officials.

Keep Calm and Google On.
