Donald Trump Goes to the United Nations

Vacillating between two topics today, neither of which is pleasant, reminds me of Republican threats to congress regarding healthcare: “Sign this bill or we stop funding”, aka: “Give me your lunch money or I’ll punch you in the face and take your lunch money.” I hate both choices, but Graham-Cassidy trying to sneak another healthcare repeal through congress on September 30th…will simmer for another day. 

Donald Trump’s speech has made us a laughing stock around the world—yet again, and that merits mention.

Trump owes the United States and the United Nations an apology, but he won’t apologize. I have a suggestion for the UN. You would do well to exclude the U.S. from future meetings until this Trump situation is resolved. The vast majority of Americans will understand the snub, and feel secure in it. 

Donald J Trump, America’s ugly, proudly displayed his stupidity on Tuesday at the United Nations General Assembly. There are some things you can’t un-say:

“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself.” Donald J Trump to UN

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly during Trump’s speech to the UN seemed a little distraught. Perhaps he doesn’t think Trump should have access to the nuclear codes either.

Fred Kaplan of Slate Magazine called Trump’s UN speech—

“The most hostile, dangerous, and intellectually confused address by an American president to an international audience.” 

But surely we had some reasonable representation there:

So what Rand Paul tells the UN is that votes should be weighted by wealth. The wealthy should control more than they already do. This is the new American democratic ideology: I’m a billionaire, so I take the loaf, and the rest of you can work hard to scoop up the crumbs. 

Let’s go back to the confusion in chief. We expected something big, did we not? After Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, disclosed his intent to indict Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, after a midnight raid of his home: no knock, locks picked, guns drawn, wife frisked, computer files copied, photos taken of everything including his wardrobe, we expected Trump to react.

Something had to come of the disclosure that Manafort has been under the FBI’s microscope since 2014, (get your calculators out millennials— that’s a long time), and Lordy there are tapes! Tapes between Manafort and Russian operatives discussing the Trump campaign, and Trump is on said tapes. These tapes promise to be far more damaging than the pee pee tapes with Trump and under aged sex workers in Russia. 

So, rest easy, this Trump speech was another attempt at distraction, and we knew it would come. 

— It’s Mueller Time…yes, I know I keep saying that and it hasn’t happened. My bored teenaged son tells me I’ve been saying it for a months, but it only feels like the Iowa part of a cross-country drive in February. 

Mueller has only been on this case since May, (millennials…that’s not a long time.) These things take time. According to insiders, Mueller is “attacking this investigation in the way Feds go after an organized crime syndicate”…at lighting speed. 

Speaking of crime syndicate, like tax evasion took down Al Capone, Mueller’s investigation is, in large part, focusing on financial crimes such as tax evasion and money laundering. 

Mueller’s team is digging as deep as 2011 in their document search. October 15 is the deadline to bring charges against Manafort for his 2011 returns. Maybe that is the reason for Mueller’s lightening pace? Lordy I hope so.
Mueller promised Manafort an indictment. Michael “lock her up” Flynn must be next in line, then Carter Page, and the circle gets smaller— perhaps son in-law Kushner due to his Facebook/Russia manipulations, and Don Jr for the nothing burger— until finally the whole Kleptocracy Klan, all the way up to Pence and Trump, will be wearing stripes.

Incidentally, Trump is using Republican National Committee funds to pay his lawyers, directing more than $230,000 to his attorneys in August alone. Is that that legal?  

Meanwhile, the longer Trump reigns, the more damage he does to the United States standing in the world, and our economy. The New York Times reports a $2.7 billion loss in international tourism revenue in the first few months since Trump took office, and tourism to the U.S. continues to steadily decline. Why would anyone choose to plan a trip to a country as unstable as Trump’s America. “MAGA”

Unprecedent Him Already!!

Top 5 Reasons Donald Trump Junior Wants Privacy from the Secret Service

Last night Don Jr announced he’s opting out of Secret Service protection. Hmm… finally something fresh, and new, and not suspicious at all.

Junior says he wants “privacy.” This just as Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller advises Paul Manafort, he will be indicted. Manafort you recall is Trump’s former campaign manager, and one of the attendees at Don Junior’s meeting with a Russian lawyer last June “to get dirt on Hillary,” the “nothing burger” meeting. 

But why should Donny forego the Secret Service? Let’s explore a few possible motivating factors: 

  1. He can’t shred and burn documents with the secret service breathing down his neck.
  2. He is planning a private meeting with his money in the Cayman Islands and then will hightail it to Russia.
  3. The Secret Service runs out of money to protect the POTUS and his family on September 30…that’s the same day the GOP votes, yet again, on an ACA healthcare repeal. Does Don suffer a pre-existing condition? — If so, is he considering a move to Canada where the government cares about their citizens? This theory needs work. 
  4. Kellyanne Conway also announced last night she is opting out of Secret Service protection — She and Junior are running off together…to Bowling Green, where they can cohabitate without the prying eyes of their microwave ovens.
  5. Donny has just seen the new film based on Steven King’s “IT”…and now he’s terrified of the clown in the White House.______________________

Zuckerberg and Russian Money

I’m curious as to whether people are financially successful because of an inflated belief in their abilities, or if the God complex happens after they hit the jackpot.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is contemplating a run for the presidency in 2020….or he was.
Although Zuckerberg admits to having sold possibly $150,000 in ad space to a Kremlin linked troll farm, it looks like Facebook took more Russian money than just that. 

An article published by ‘TechCrunch’, back in May 2009 sites “a Facebook transaction of $200 Million in the form of an Investment from Russians at a $10 Billion Valuation.”

Mark Zuckerberg, you got some splainin to do. 
Add to this the fact that the ad space which was sold to Russians was used not only to spread propaganda, but to target anti-semites and white supremacists in attempts to organize the hate groups, all to further Trump’s presidential run. These trolls may have reached 70 million people thanks to Facebook.

‘Facebook Enabled Advertisers to Reach ‘Jew Haters’’ — ProPublica

Was Zuckerberg aware when he took Russian money how the ads would be used? He’s damned either way. I wonder if these revelations will be enough to tamp down his presidential aspirations.

Donald Trump blazed the trail for every multi- millionaire megalomaniac media moll out there. The short list of unqualified possible contenders for 2020 so far: Howard Shultz – Starbucks CEO,  Mark Zuckerberg – Facebook, Mark Cuban – owner of some sports team and frequent reality tv star, Oprah Winfrey – talk show host magazine publisher, “The Rock” Johnson – former pro-wrestler and super hot actor…

If truley interested in public service, why not start with congress or local government? What makes people think they can skip to the front of the line? They must believe their luck at obtaining a fortune in business is attributed to a special kind of genius that will translate to any field— including politics, regardless that they have no knowledge of the law and no experience in government. I don’t get it. 

Trump has proven in these last 10 months that portraying a successful businessman on a “reality” tv show is not the same as experience at governing a country. Trump is a ridiculous failure, and apparently an inspiration to anyone with money.
Can we stop now?

Trump Angers Supporters by Working With Democrats…(or not)

Donald Trump has agreed to work with Democrats to save “Dreamers” —Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, allowing 690k to stay in the US and continue working, studying, serving in the military. 

No he didn’t… 

but he has… 

“We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides,” ~ Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi

No he hasn’t…

“No deal has been made.” ~Donald Trump


Umm you did until just now…

Donald Trump finally shook off his die hard supporters…this time by doing something humane.
What does Satans female counterpart think about all this? 

Steve King, heartless Republican GOP rep, (redundant I know), is disillusioned by a Trump inconsistency. He hasn’t been paying attention, or he’s agreed with all the inconsistencies so far:

Sorry, I don’t mean to 😂 😂 😂 laugh.


What big news story is Trump trying to draw attention away from by doing this? 

Perhaps this: Flynn dealt with a sanctioned Russia in attempt to secure a nuclear project deal.

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

Eight Reasons Trump Jr. Isn’t guilty

Rotten apples fall from diseased trees

Sometimes two apples…and often three

Once democracy’s stained

What’s unanswered remains:

Imprisoned or pardoned and set free


He was misled and not thinking corruption

It was a woman so they would talk adoption

Russian babies brought here

What’s there to fear?

She had no dirt so he had no compunction 

Fact: Hillary’s health was a concern

From the Russian he hoped he would learn

If Clinton was fit

To win and to sit

No facts offered nor any returned


Jr replied to the email, like a twit

“If it’s what you’re saying, I love it.”

He’s rock dumb, but polite

And that makes it alright

Say it ten times— now it isn’t bullshit

He’s important and busy, as such

He can’t read every email he’s touched

So he chose to forward

To Kush and Manafort

They met not to collude…not so much


Nothing gained—it was a big waste of time

Intent matters not—it is no crime

Fish with foreign agents

Wasn’t worth the time spent

Why care who he calls on his own dime?

Political opposition research

To win elections you must besmirch

Opponents if you can

They’re not even human

Russia offered…in reflex he lurched


Putin is a good friend after all

Annexing Crimea took big balls

Trump’s cash can’t be squandered

So they have it laundered

Ummm…too late to say “I don’t recall?”


If you must know the truth, it’s the same

Reason for any problem you name,

If something’s not right

Accuse one whose not white

The bottom line is Obama’s to blame
