“Spine-ectomy”

March 24, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Shockingly, the General Services Administration (GSA) issued a determination letter yesterday that the lease of the old post office in Washington, DC, now known as the Cheeto International Hotel, is VALID, even though it states in plain language in the lease that, “No … elected official of the Government of the United States … shall be admitted to any share or part of this Lease, or to any benefit that may arise therefrom…”   Stupidly, the letter hides behind the fact that Cheeto Jesus put this business in a trust.  Yes, it is in a trust – a revocable trust, run by his children.

The Daily Beast interviewed George Washington University Professor of Government Procurement Law Steven L. Schooner who said, “Not only is the conclusion unexpected and unpersuasive, as a matter of law, but, as a matter of policy, it is harmful to the integrity—and thus credibility—of GSA, the Presidency, and federal procurement process.” When asked how the GSA could come to the conclusion it did he gave a simple reason, “Spine-ectomy.”

So lets lay this out in plain language – the GSA employee who negotiated the contract, Kevin Terry, has just stated publicly that his boss’s boss, who is in clear, undeniable conflict of interest, is not actually in conflict of interest, even though he is the highest elected official in the land.  It’s basically “Nothing to see here, move along.”

If you had any doubt, this is what creeping corruption looks like.  We are becoming Russia, one lease at a time.

When His Lips are Moving

March 23, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Time magazine interviewed Cheeto Jesus yesterday and questioned him about lies and lying.  Like Sarah Palin, when caught in a lie, CJ engages in word salad; in this interview, he went to the Defcon 4 of word salad.  Here is the  textbook example, when answering a question about him continually calling the credibility of the intelligence community into question:

“I’m not saying—no, I’m not blaming. First of all, I put Mike Pompeo in. I put Senator Dan Coats in. These are great people. I think they are great people and they are going to, I have a lot of confidence in them. So hopefully things will straighten out. But I inherited a mess, I inherited a mess in so many ways. I inherited a mess in the Middle East, and a mess with North Korea, I inherited a mess with jobs, despite the statistics, you know, my statistics are even better, but they are not the real statistics because you have millions of people that can’t get a job, ok. And I inherited a mess on trade. I mean we have many, you can go up and down the ladder. But that’s the story. Hey look, in the mean time, I guess, I can’t be doing so badly, because I’m president, and you’re not. You know. Say hello to everybody OK?”

I’ll just leave this right here.

UPDATED: The Comatose Awaken?

UPDATE:  Try this link.

Yesterday, the reliably right wing The Wall Street Journal awoke and turned on Cheeto Jesus yesterday, speaking to what has been obvious to the rest of the planet for months now – CJ is a liar, and clings to his lies “like a drunk to an empty gin bottle.”  The WSJ goes on to say that when the real crisis comes (and it will), will Americans believe the words he spews, or will they just dismiss it as another reality television show rant?

The incendiary tweets, bumbling second grade level language, repetition of lies he’s heard on Fox Noise and Infowars, and erratic behavior have taken their toll.

It only gets worse from here, folks.  Better strap in.

 

Schumer Calls for Delay on Gorsuch

March 21, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Chuck Schumer, who I consider to be a New York machine hack, actually said something today with which I agree.  As long as Cheeto Jesus is under investigation by the FBI, the Senate should hold on any consideration of his nominees, especially that of Neil Gorsuch for SCOTUS.  Schumer said,

“There is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that’s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems very unseemly and there ought to be a delay.”

This is rational.  After all, just consider the baying at the moon that Republicans would to doing if this was a Democratic president.

Am I regressing?

Marginalia

March 21, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Sumbitches, Trump

Definition of marginalia

  1. 1:  marginal notes or embellishments (as in a book)

  2. 2:  nonessential items the meat and marginalia of American politics — Saturday Rev.

  3. 3:  members of Cheeto Jesus’ campaign staff, namely Paul Manafort, Carter Page, Roger Stone, Sam Clovis, and Steve Bannon.  Usage: “Then you have the whole Manafort-Ukraine thing and Roger Stone running around doing whatever Roger Stone is doing.  This campaign, early on, had a lot of marginalia associated with it. Guys like Carter Page, Roger Stone. I have no earthly idea what those guys have been up to, right?”

The definition of marginalia has traditionally referred to notes in the margins of books and journals.  Today, it also refers to the weirdos, gangsters, and cronies surrounding the new, er, uh…(urp) president.

 

All You Need to Know

March 20, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

The, er, uh…(urp), President of the United States says he based his charge that the former President of the United States “wire tapped” Cheeto Tower on an assertion made on Fox Noise.  Doubling down, he then asserted that British intelligence did it at the former President’s request, also heard on Fox Noise.

Both charges were completely discredited by the Director of the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence.  There is ZERO evidence that either of these claims are true.

Two conclusions:

  1. The President of the United States uses Fox Noise as his prime source of information.
  2. Fox Noise is not a reliable source for ANY kind of information.

That is all you need to know.
