For the past few years I’ve posted July 4th nail art. This year is different. While I didn’t intentionally paint my nails these colors for July 4th, this is how I feel. The blue tips are for me being disgusted with what is happening in the United States, and I’m blue. The flat pink is for Pepto Bismol, which is an antacid reliever, as I feel sick to my stomach. I wanted to celebrate independence day, but with the way things are going in the United States, I’m not sure how much longer we will be independent.
We have a juvenile numb nuts for president who is clearly mentally unstable. If he doesn’t like what is said about him in the media (which is a lot) he shouts fake news! His die hard followers believe whatever he spews forth. I really want to believe that all of his supporters can’t be that stupid, but one really has to wonder. Wake the f*&k up my fellows Americans, before this jackass takes us any farther down the rabbit hole.
This morning, Trump tweeted an old video of himself pummeling a wrestler after the wrestler was thrown out of the ring. The wrestler taking Trump’s blows is labeled CNN. Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 7/2/17, 9:21 AM #FraudNewsCNN #FNN pic.twitter.com/WYUnHjjUjg I see this as a direct incitement to violence against the media and anyone who dares […]
For the love of God, please make this orange haired buffoon and his evil minions just go the f*&k away!
Dear Readers, Let’s get real. When the comedian Kathy Griffin made a joke that portrayed violence against the republican President President Donald Trump, she was fired by CNN. Kathy Griffin apologized profusely over her tasteless joke. When three reporters from CNN posted an article which had not been adequately vetted, they were fired and CNN […]
Okay, I just thought this picture I took of an orangutan needed to go with that title… but now, I might as well write something to go with both of them. How about this: I sort of agree with the idea of some of the tRump voters who just wanted to try removing politicians from […]
Lately I’m torn between needing a day off from politics, and sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next thing. The next thing is always only a few hours away, which adds a high level of anticipation to my news addiction. Donald Trump has turned me into a backseat political analyst. But […]
Republicans are most likely abetting and and enabling a Russian asset who has been living in the White House. No, this is not “fake news, nor a conspiracy theory but a DOSE of reality. There are the facts that republican legislators have been refusing to face because too many of them have become fearful of antagonizing the republican President […]
Week 15: Experts in authoritarianism advise to keep a list of things subtly changing around you, so you’ll remember.
published February 25, 2017
This week had two themes. The first wasTrump’s lack of empathy — the cruelty and heartlessness towards Americans not white, straight, Christian and male. Trump and his regime continued to target the defenseless, including transgender individuals, Native Americans and people of color. The second theme was Russia: ties between the Trump regime and Russia are continuing to pour out — meanwhile, the regime is actively seeking to suppress information.
The NYT reported on a back-channel plan, originally handed in a seal envelope by Cohen to Flynn, for a Ukraine and Russia ‘peace plan’ (with new leadership in Ukraine), in exchange for US lifting sanctions. Other Ukraine connections mentioned Artemenko, Manafort and Sater.
The Ukraine lawmaker, Artemenko, who allegedly worked with two Trump associates on the back-channel plan, faces a treason inquiry.
POLITICO reported that while serving as Trump’s campaign manager, Manafort faced a blackmail attempt by a Ukrainian parliamentarian to expose him and the Trump as Russian-friendly .
The NYT reported McMaster may reorganize the NSC, and that Trump didn’t understand the significance of the EO which elevated Bannon, and took the intelligence director and Joints Chief chairman off the council.
A group of law professors filed a misconduct complaint against Conway. The letter said Conway should be “sanctioned for violating government ethics rules” and “conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.”
At CPAC, Trump delivered yet another dystopian speech, but failed to acknowledge actual hate crime happening in our country, including a Kansas bar shooting, where a white man yelled “get out of my country,” at two Indian American men, before shooting into a crowd and killing one.
WAPO reported that in addition to the Trump regime’s efforts with the FBI to discredit news on their ties to Russia, they also sought the help of senior intel officials, and GOP leaders Sen Burr and Rep Nunes, who head the Senate and House Intelligence Committees.
