Trump’s Three Ring Circus

Where to look…

Ring 1—

They’re Taking Away Our Social Services TODAY:

The Republican majority just voted to pass the House 2019 budget, rejecting every amendment offered by Democrats. This is, in part, to cover the $15 trillion added to the federal deficit with the GOP Tax Cut for the wealthy, and corporate America.

The GOP House worked tirelessly, behind the scenes, to pass their budget, out of committee:

  • Ending SNAP, The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program for 1.5 million veterans and 23,000 active duty households who rely on food stamp benefits.
  • Issuing a fast track repeal of the Affordable Care Act, bringing back the pre-existing condition.
  • Cutting $2 TRILLION from Medicare and Medicaid.

The Center Ring—

They do not plan to stop taking children:

The main spectacle we are witnessing comes in the form of human rights violations, targeting children, devised by Stephan Miller, taking place under the supervision of Mexican food connoisseur Kirstjen Nielsen, (both she and Miller were chased out of Mexican restaurants this week).

  • Widely reported today is the story that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has been telling Republican lawmakers— the plan is to resume separating families once public and media attention has been redirected. She believes the policy works and she supports it 100%, as do the majority Republicans in Congress, as does Trump.

  • In a cabinet meeting on migrant kids, Trump said his executive action is “limited,” may still result in separations, and “It leads to separation ultimately.”
  • Border Patrol agents shut down I-95 southbound in Maine. “If you want to continue down the road, then yes ma’am. We need to know what citizen — what country you’re a citizen of,” an agent said.

Ring 3—

This Girl is Missing, and there are no records of any of the 2300 Children taken at the US border.

The girl who has become the face of the Republican Party can not be accounted for… in fact there is hardly a word of any girls or toddlers.

No records were made of the 2300 children separated from their parents, re-classified as unaccompanied minors, and flown across the country to various holding facilities.

One more thing to consider:

Are you ashamed of this country that was stolen from it’s indigenous people?

Is America really the land of the free?

Trump’s Goals for North Korea: “look nice and handsome and thin, and…”

“Getting a good picture everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin, and perfect”. ~ Donald J Trump

Donald Trump, whose administration has added 15 trillion to the deficit in order to misappropriate a tax cut for the rich and their corporations, at the expense of children’s health insurance and everyone’s social services, which isn’t going to cover the bill, said he’s going to save Americans money by ending military drills in South Korea. Yes he did.

He gave North Korea’s leader, among other things, a signed document stating the U.S. would halt joint military exercises with South Korea.

This was news to South Korea.

The artless ‘Art of the Deal’ “author” has has been playing a game without having taken the time to learn the rules. His blatant ignorant arrogance, obvious to the entire world, with the exception of his supporters, has Putin laughing again.

If former ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ contestant Dennis Rodman’s appearance didn’t alert you to the fact that the events were a poorly produced theatrical production in want of lively choreography, staged propaganda, I would urge you not to make any financial decisions or operate heavy machinery until you have consulted a physician.

Donald J Trump, doesn’t have the mental capacity to know he’s been played, nor do his supporters. He traded military concessions for a photo op. He calls military exercises “war games,” and says it will save us money to end them.

He may have heard the whispers, or shouts that North Korea signed the same prized document in: 1985, 1992, 1994, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2016, yet it had no effect.

Had he done anything to prepare for the meeting…

“The truth is, he’s been preparing for this his whole life,” Mike Pence

Excuse me, Mike… had Donald J Trump taken the time to read the “agreement” with North Korea, which he signed on camera, and had it explained to him… had he researched prior “agreements” with North Korea, and had those explained to him, he might have seen that the “agreements” are the same, and none have any terms or conditions attached to them. It is all unenforceable hyperbole, paper with words, none of which is legally binding.

After signed copies of the document circulated, Donald J Trump may have heard whispers of criticism that he abandoned our allies, South Korea and Japan, making them more vulnerable to attack.

He may have been asked why he conceded to North Korea in exchange for their usual hint that they might denuclearize, because he gave the following statement after saying he “trusts Kim Jong Un”:

“I may be wrong, I mean I may stand before you in six months and say, ‘Hey I was wrong,’ I don’t know that I’ll ever admit that, but I’ll find some kind of an excuse.” ~Donald J Trump

He’ll make something up, he’ll lie. The first truth he’s uttered.

Let’s take a moment to reflect on the past several days. Trump fought with our European and Canadian allies, then met with, and gave military concessions to, a murderous dictator in exchange for a photo op.

He wants a Nobel peace prize for this.

On a side note, the Canadian parliament condemned President Trump’s attacks on Justin Trudeau in a unanimous vote. Why can’t they invade us?

Someone please explain to potus 45 that our allies are Europe, Australia, Canada, Japan, South Korea, and our enemies are North Korea, China and Russia.

Our enemies are a united force. To highlight that point, consider that the Chinese Foreign Ministry announced Trump’s concession to suspend US war games with South Korea before Trump announced it himself at the press briefing.

Kim’s people shared the news with Beijing immediately after the meeting, knowing it was a huge victory.

Take heart, because while Donald Trump handed U.S. power over to Kim, Robert Mueller continued working.

Trump’s Stealth Attack on Americans

While all eyes are fixed on what will no doubt soon be called the G-6 summit, (math is important, 7-1=6), Donald Trump’s stealth attack on the middle class is underway.

Two permutations attempting to take root, on the down low—

Jeff Sessions Idk GIF by joerocco - Find & Share on GIPHY

Attack 1: The justice department, Jeff I(IDoNotRecall) Sessions, is at work trying to bring back the “pre-existing condition.” Yesterday the angry elf sent a letter to congressional leaders notifying them that he would not defend the requirement for insurers to sell insurance to all applicants.

The Justice Dept. (👆🏼him) Says Crucial Provisions of Obamacare (protecting the insurance of those with preexisting conditions) are unconstitutional –

The New York Times

Justice Dept. Says Crucial Provisions of Obamacare Are Unconstitutional – The New York Times

Attack 2:

For the first time since 1982, the federal government claims a “need to dip into Social Security’s $3 trillion trust fund.”

Yes, Steve T(TrophyWife) Mnuchin is suggesting benefit cuts of up to 30%. Let me remind you, 1, THAT’S OUR MONEY, and B, it’s fully funded through 2034.

What does it mean? In my humble opinion, it means, this money have we contributed to with each pay period, since day 1 on job 1, is essentially going to pay for the GOP billionaire tax cut.

Trump’s White House is Expected to Dip Into Social Security

Social Security Expected to Dip Into Its Reserves This Year

Mueller…

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?

A Word on the NFL

On Wednesday, NFL team owners approved a new policy regarding players behavior during the National Anthem: Players must stand or remain in the locker room until after the National Anthem is over.

With everything happening today— the revelations regarding the extent of Donald Trump’s traitorous acts, the 1500 children our government tore from their parents arms, only to release them to human traffickers and disavow responsibility, weekly mass shootings, the Russia funded terrorist organization that calls itself the NRA, global warming related storms, fires, floods, Russia in the white house, etc… the NFL kneeling business is arguably a means to distract the public, particularly those who are easily distracted… Trump loyalists.

That said, I feel the need to address some aspects of this situation as they pertain to the news today.

On a personal note, my tax dollars come from money I worked hard to earn, and I want a say, a vote, in how those dollars are spent. Why? Because I no longer trust elected officials to use the money in my best interest. I could end this post here. You can stop reading if you’re bored, because this is the point.

For example, (awe, thanks for still reading), given a choice as to how my tax dollars are spent, I would vote HELL NO to my money being used to build billion dollar stadiums for the profit of private owners… owners who could, with a little coaxing, open their own checkbooks and purchase their own stadiums with cash… owners who enjoy tax breaks and exemptions not afforded to me.

I believe in anyone’s right to a peaceful protest. Kneeling is a peaceful protest.

I have no idea who this guy is, but I agree with Steve Kerr:

https://youtu.be/qevsTmvpwQ8

I don’t watch sports. I fully support your right to waste your afternoons, sitting on your ass, eating cheese whiz covered nachos and slurping Schlitz after Schlitz, while watching physically fit, overpaid, athletes display their talents. That’s your right.

And, if you’d like to throw your tax dollars, at billionaire plantation team owners, do it. I want my money spent on clean water for Michigan, power for Puerto Rico, and healthcare for everyone.

Republicans threaten to cut “unsustainable entitlements”: Medicare and Medicaid, and Social Security. We have been paying for our future use of Social Security since our first days on our first jobs.

Okay kids, let’s all look at our pay stubs. I’ll wait. There is a line marked “Social Security”, and next to it an amount that tells you how much of your earned income was taken that pay period.

Social Security is OUR MONEY put in the government’s hands for safe keeping until we are ready to draw on it. This is a fully funded (by us) program, but somehow the GOP believes it is money they can take in order to balance a budget they shot to hell by giving a tax cut to those who bribed them to do so: the wealthiest 1% and corporations. And, these politicians continue to throw money, paid by public tax dollars, at sports arenas.

Donald Trump has inadvertently shined a spotlight on the fact that the NFL is reliant on public money to build their stadiums,

and he is threatening billionaire team owners with tax law changes if they don’t comply with his doctrine regarding the National Anthem, which is, as you may have guessed, 100% based on his racism.

I’ve heard many people say: “It would be great if none of the players came out of the locker room until after the National Anthem.” That won’t happen. According to a columnist for ‘The Intercept’, Shaun King, a recent “anonymous poll” of NFL players showed 100% of the white players agree with Trump, while 92% of the black players disagree. Not very anonymous when the results for white players are 100%.

Don’t take my word for any of this. I’ve attached links so that you can see what others, with a much larger audience, are saying on the subject.

John Oliver’s take on stadiums is well worth a view:

http://youtu.be/xcwJt4bcnXs

Let NFL team owners take their teams to LA, as they threaten to do if states don’t fund their stadiums. They won’t, but if pigs fly and the NFL does move, the sport will continue as it does today. The difference will be— it won’t be on my dime.

Controlling a black workforce is what the NFL does best (opinion)

That’s enough on the NFL. It’s time to refocus on the real problem at hand. We have an enemy of state in the White House, put there by Russia, destroying our democracy and our planet.

I am fed up with this administration. (That’s new.🙄)

This is a temporary situation, I tell myself that everyday, but we can not sit back silently waiting for someone else to do something. This situation needs not only everyone’s vote, but everyone’s voice.

Call these assholes… about everything. They aren’t doing their jobs.
