Felonious Trump

Established in three days, three reports

Don Jr., Erik Prince, Roger Stone— three cohorts

All lied to Congress

But none are distressed

Will this federal felon gang go to Court?

White House Lawyer Crashes FBI Meeting on Trump-Russia Investigation

Emmet Flood, Trump’s personal lawyer,

On Capital Hill for his employer

Made an appearance

Sans Security clearance

A Trump treason reconnoiter

~

The DOJ presenting evidence

Gowdy, Kelly, Ryan— in arrogance

Devin Nunes and Flood

The recused and a stud

Cassified security briefing— interference

~

Nunes “recused himself” after his midnight run

But then designed on ‘Comey memo’ fun

He has perseverance

It gives the appearance

Of obstructing justice… to name one.

Who Is Jack Johnson and Why Did Donald Trump Grant Him a Posthumous Pardon?

Meanwhile Trump has set a precedent

A posthumous pardon… it’s relevance?

This first black heavyweight

Boxing champ— morte, the late

Conviction? trafficking… the elephant?

Elephants in the room, there are two

(1) Trump’s pedophile pal Epstein’s who

Ran Lolita express,

Trump an esteemed guest,

His redacted FBI files open for public view

FBI — Jeffrey Epstein

(2) ‘Trump Models’, you may recall

Closed in a cloud of concern, overall

The general thought

Young girls were brought

From overseas and whored out. Appalled?~~~

Almost 1,500 Migrant Children Placed in Homes by the U.S. Government Went Missing Last Year

One last story, that’s also twofold

Migrant children were “lost” in ICE hold

1475 souls

Into a black hole

Admitting, to traffickers, they may have sold

ICE Plans to Start Destroying Records of Immigrant Abuse, Including Sexual Assault and Deaths in Custody

The boldest move Trump has ordered yet

ICE to shred docs of sex abuse and death

This and the missing

Allegation dismissing

Trump’s is an administration history will never forget.

Domestic Violence Explained… a limerick

White House Secretary Rob Porter

Whom Trump hired despite his disorder

Of reported abuse

Let’s not be obtuse

Listen to GOP supporters

~~

Although photographed with a bruised face

Domestic violence may not be the case

Despite allegations

There’s an explanation

Hit by him? No, she was hit by a vase

~~

My lifelong fear is now verified

I don’t keep vases where I reside

They stray from their places

Attack people’s faces

It’s no one’s fault. Is that clarified?

Can I Get A— “What About Her Emails?!”

Which title to use? There are so many possibilities:

  • Donald Trump— “I Alone Can Fix It.”
  • Irony, hypocrisy, and the GOP
  • “So Much Winning”
  • A GOP Day… Without Government
  • America, the Worlds New Shithole.
  • “So Much Winning!”
  • The Government is Closed for Business

You get the idea. Today felt like Christmas morning… in that I didn’t know what I would find when I woke up.

After GOP leaders locked Democrats out of negotiations and instead sat with lobbyists to write tax legislation, that they passed on their own, they demanded Democrats sign the check. This standstill continued when I fell asleep… face in popcorn.

I woke weary with anticipation and looked at the news headlines on my phone with some satisfaction. I found the Democrats did not completely roll over to enable the failure that is Donald Trump to continue.

In fact, this was not a vote that went along party lines. There were a number of crossovers from both parties. Several Democrats from Red states voted yes to the proposed budget, and several Republicans voted no. More specifically, the following Republicans also voted against the budget— Senator Flake, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and Lindsey O. Graham. Own it Mr. President.

In the end Mitch A.(Am-I-a-turtle) McConnell and Paul E.(Eats-small-children) Ryan did not have the votes. We can guess who they blame.

He who holds power of the majority, in all branches of government shall blame the minority, (democrats), for their own political impotence. — I am pretty sure that’s in the constitution.

Paul Ryan, who received government assistance as a child, tried to use children’s healthcare to shame members of congress into supporting their policies. In order to balance the tax cuts for Koch Industries, and Wells Fargo, and Pfizer, and Goldman Sacs, and Walmart and Apple and Exxon and etc. Ryan held a press conference implying that those who vote no “don’t want healthcare for kids.”

McConnell tweeted a similar sentiment.

Mitch McConnell is a no-brainer… literally. CHIP expired three months ago and the GOP could have reauthorized it at any time. They did not.

… and let’s try that old standby now

Can I Get A—

“What About Her Emails!?!”

What happens now that there is no government?

The Ten Commandments of Government shut down.

  1. The middle class shall get screwed. Government employees go on immediate unpaid leave.
  2. Thou shalt exclude politicians from unpaid part of #1. Politicians shall receive pay continuance.
  3. Thou shalt not attain passport. Who wants to leave this shithole anyway?
  4. Mail will prevail. Rain, sleet, snow, government shut down, nor hail, shall ever stop the US mail.
  5. Thou shalt not receive word of financial aid for college. Because planning for college isn’t stressful enough.
  6. Air Traffic Control, and Essential Military and Defense shall continue. Those who planned ahead with their passports can expect all typical ATC delays, of which they are accustomed, to proceed as usual.
  7. Thou shall not be ticketed for enjoying Dog Parks without permits. Grab your dog, Fish Face, and head over to the forest preserve dog park, No one will be on duty to ticket those without permits. (Don’t take my word on that, and it’s very muddy this time of year, so dress accordingly.)
  8. Mueller shall carry on his investigation.
  9. Grandma shall receive her social security and Medicare, (although perhaps delayed.)
  10. Donald S. (Stable Genius)Trump will golf on your dime. But you knew that.

How the press is covering this:

MSNBC: There’s a government shutdown looming.

CNN: shutdown 2018.

FOX: Searching the Woods for Hillary Clinton. Yep, it’s true.

In summation, McConnell did not even have 50 Republican votes, so he can not, (but will), blame Democrats.

IN OTHER NEWS:

  • It has been a year since the Women’s March and we trod on, marching around the world again today.

ALSO:

  • In an attempt to redeem themselves Deutsche Bank reported questionable transactions involving President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, to German securities regulators and will forward the info to special prosecutor Robert Mueller.
  • The FBI is investigating whether top Russian banker Alexander Torshin, who has close ties to the Kremlin, sent money to the NRA to help President Trump win the election. – Mclatchy reports
  • Oh…marosa is lawyering up, word is she may have secretly taped White House conversations. Lordy, I hope there are tapes.

Happy Anniversary Donald Trump… is this what Happy is?

Matt Lauer is Sorry…

Have you read any of the accounts of abuse

The stories go far beyond misdeeds and misuse

It is more than an exploitation of power

Allegations brought against menace Matt Louer

The accounts I have read sound like rape, nothing less

Today he is “truly sorry”… I’m not impressed

NBC kept Matt Louer’s zoo open too long

He hated women, though others lived in the throng

NBC permitted a boys club atmosphere

None of them deserve decent jobs, that much is clear

Each of those people, guilty of playing along,

The game— f**ck, kill, mary—didn’t they feel it wrong?

NBC’s own reporter exposed Weinstein’s crimes

They chose not to report it— another time…

They held onto Trump’s Access Hollywood tape

The Washington Post let that vile story escape

How many people in charge kept quiet who knew?

NBC needs to clean house, shake up the whole crew

Hire only women, bosses, hosts and producers

No intimidation by would be seducers

Misogynists, enabling assistants alike

Personal affects in a box, then take a hike

No silence, reckoning for women is today

Donald Trump yours is coming I venture to say

Trump’s Misogyny is Complete

Nobody respects women more than Donald Trump… just ask him. Imagine every emotionally abusive, racist, misogynistic grandpa, the who ruins every family holiday get together, all those qualities knit into one big ugly holiday sweater… but now, thanks to Russia, we all have to try to stomach his presence daily. I see Donald Trump.

It has taken Trump well over a year to concoct an excuse, but he finally has one. He now claims the “Access Hollywood” tape, the one in which he can be heard bragging about sexually assaulting women, was fake. Billy Bush, who was on the receiving end of Trump’s graphic monologue lost his career over it… for listening, but Trump has gone on to become the least popular president in history.

Trump’s denial is in tandem with his backing of Alabama Judge Roy Moore, a pedophile who was banned from a local mall and YMCA because his behavior toward teenaged girls, as young as fourteen, was so concerning.

Trump on Moore:

“He says it didn’t happen, and, you know, you have to listen to him also. You’re talking about, he said 40 years ago this did not happen.”

Okay, if he says so.

Trump’s assault on women goes beyond indiscriminate sexual predation. Now that he has the ability to affect the masses he has taken several swings at the entire gender.

Women in 2017 still only make an average of eighty cents for each dollar men make doing the same job, and Trump wants to keep it that way. He has put a freeze on an Obama era requirement that companies file data specifying employee income by race, ethnicity and gender, a law intended to protect women’s pay. This equal pay initiative had been launched by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Donald Trump has also moved to silence women on the subject of sexual harassment at work. He has reversed another Obama-era order requiring federal contractors disclose sexual harassment and discrimination cases. This law affects approximately 26 million employees, and forces workers to resolve any complaints through arbitration and out of the public eye.

Trump has revived and expanded on a 1984 gag rule which prohibits health clinics from discussing, referring, or advocating abortion. The government will no longer allocate federal assistance to organizations worldwide that provide abortions or offer counseling on them. Trump has expanded the abolished law, waiving aid to organizations that receive family-planning dollars unless they comply with said regulation. This direct assault on women’s reproductive rights will most impact the poor.

I am confident Donald Trump won’t survive Mueller’s investigation, but I wonder how long it will take to undo the damage.

“And By the Way, He Totally Denies It.” ~Donald J.Trump

Denial is not absolution.

Donald Trump has done something no president has done before. He has exposed the hypocrisy of the evangelical right, and the GOP.

“Roy Moore denies it. That’s all I can say. He denies it. And by the way, he totally denies it.” ~ Donald Trump, sexual predator

There has been an undercurrent building, fueled by indignation at our society’s inclination to look the other way, make excuses for predators, and blame victims- while it protects those men who commit unspeakable crimes.

Trump’s endorsement of this man, whose predatory behavior was so blatant he was banned for life from a shopping mall and the YMCA, can only feed the backlash against abuse and empower more victims to come forward naming their attackers.

Trump isn’t the only politician to dismiss Moore’s crimes. Alabama Governor Kay Ivy has stated she believes the accusers, who say Senate hopeful Roy Moore sexually harassed and assaulted them when they were teens, but she is going to vote for him regardless.

The election of Donald Trump despite accusations against him by 24 women, one as young as 13, of sexual misconduct ranging from harassment to rape, in addition to the audiotape capturing Trump graphically bragging about what he believes is an entitlement to assault women, enraged victims of abuse to such an extent that it brought an estimated 5 million women together participating in 673 marches worldwide. Outing assailants has become the next step.

Long buried memories of sexual harassment, assault, rape, told by of victims after years of suppression, as well as accounts on how those misogynistic experiences shaped the lives of victims, demonstrate clearly these experiences don’t make people stronger, they wear them down. That is what they’re meant to do. Sexual assault is an abuse of power with lifelong implications for the victims.

This problem is not limited to Hollywood or Washington, it’s a worldwide problem without socioeconomic boundaries.

50% of women recently polled said they have experienced some form of sexual harassment or worse, and women are not the only victims.

The only way to change society’s negligence with regards to this issue is to stand together and fight it as a group. There is strength in numbers and unfortunately victims do outnumber the assailants and naysayers.

The fact that pedophile Roy Moore, and other predators like Donald Trump and Harvey Weinstein, refuse to admit their behavior regardless of the number of their accusers does not lessen their crimes. Denial is not absolution.

Rapists almost never spend a single night in jail, although their victims live with the memories for the rest of their lives. Laws made by men favor the abusers. The only retribution we have right now is to expose abusers to their employers, their families, and the press. We are left no choice but to assert our own consequences, because without repercussions rampant sexual misconduct will continue.
