The Only Wall We Need –

April 15, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Federal judges all over the country block Trump’s racist immigration orders.  A federal judge rules Texas racist voter ID law unconstitutional.  A federal judge confirms marriage equality rights.  This morning, a federal judge blocks Arkansas’ rush to kill 7 death row inmates before the expiration date of the sedative used in executions.  That’s right, some idiot in Arkansas thought it was a good idea to rush up 7 executions because the company that provides the sedative has discontinued selling them to states that use it to kill people.

Trump and his cronies have rapidly pulled the veil down over the WH.  His press secretary lies daily from the briefing room podium, the Secretary of State banned reporters from his trips.  The State Department has halted the daily briefing.  Yesterday, the WH announced that visitor logs are now secret.  And, of course, Cheeto Jesus will never release his tax returns.  Oh, and he’s making millions from those who seek to curry favor from him by their stays in his hotels and resorts.

To add insult to injury, the Congress, cowed by Trump’s twitter account, sit and do nothing, fearful that his drooling knuckle dragger base will unseat them.  They have virtually abdicated their duties of oversight and are just sitting there holding their collective breath hoping all this will go away.

The only thing standing between the American people and an incompetent fascist regime?  The federal courts.  If I’ve learned nothing else from this first several months of the most terrifying presidency in US history, I’ve learned the critical importance of the third branch of government, the judiciary.  Even with the stolen Supreme Court seat, the judiciary continues to fulfill its key role of being the referee, protecting the Constitution and our society which is governed by it.  Conservatives love to rant about the Constitution, touting Scalia’s false “originalist” approach, but ignore the other critical part of Constitutional law – over 200 years of legal precedence.  Those thousands of interpretations of the Constitution form the entire body of law that guards against the radical and illegal activities of a corrupt administration, Congress, and state legislatures.

Trump likes to talk about his “wall”, but the real wall we need is the system of courts throughout the country that is critical to protect Us from Him.

Window Dressing

April 08, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Russians, Trump

The Pentagon says that the Russians were given advanced warning of Trump’s cruise missile attack on the Shayrat airbase in Syria.  The missiles destroyed a few out-of-service aircraft and empty fortified bunkers.  The airbase is already back in use.  Here’s a satellite photo taken after the attack:

Notice anything unusual? The main runway is undamaged untouched.  I mean completely untouched.  So, the US launches 59 Tomahawk missiles and NONE were targeted on the runway?  One of the cruise missile’s missions is to disable airfields by landing 1,000 lb warheads or multiple cluster bomblets to make craters, rendering the concrete runway unusable.  Instead, they hit outlying buildings, inflicting no damage on the actual target, the runway.  As a result, warplanes that had been moved are already back in service.

Just to give you and idea of the high explosive nature of Tomahawk’s, here’s a video demonstration of it’s capability.  You can go to about 4:15 to see the explosive force on a demonstration target.

So, follow along with me here.  The US warns Russia of the attack.  Syrians move all their working aircraft off the base.  The cruise missiles land, but don’t touch the airbase runway.  The Syrian planes are already back in operation at the base.  What a coingkydink.  Was this an actual attack or window dressing covering some larger coordination between Trump’s regime and Putin’s?

This whole story fails the straight faced test.  Who’s kidding who here?  Why is the media virtually ignoring these blatant inconsistencies?

Something is rotten in Palm Beach.

 

 

Somebody Finally Said It

April 05, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Yesterday, in a remarkable made-for-television moment, Texas representative Joaquin Castro finally said it:

“I wouldn’t be surprised after all of this is said and done that some people end up in jail.”

It came during an interview on CNN about the House investigation into Russia’s meddling in our election and the more than creepy warm and fuzzy relationship between Trumpworld and Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.

FINALLY, someone in Washington has said what millions of Americans have been thinking.

UPDATED: Trump Renounces the GOP – Will Give Away Fortune

April 01, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

UPDATED: This explosive story is breaking on every network:  About 30 minutes ago, Donald Trump renounced his affiliation with the Republican Party, saying he’s going to switch to the Democratic and form a political alliance with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.  He also announced that he’s introducing legislation on Monday to expand Medicare to everyone in the US, including undocumented immigrants.  He will also donate his entire fortune, including real estate interests, to Medicaid.  In making this announcement, Trump said:

“When I awoke this morning I was hit with the revelation that I’ve been spending far too much time on Twitter and have not been doing my job since being inaugurated.  From now on, I will work 24/7 to get healthcare for all, to protect the climate, and to stop Russians from interfering with our elections and government.  To prove my commitment, I’m giving all of my worldly goods to Medicaid to help assure its solvency.  Further, I’m requiring all of my billionaire cabinet members to also give their fortunes to Medicaid.  Failure to do so will disqualify them from membership in the cabinet.”

This shocking story is still developing today, April 1, 2017.

UPDATE: In a follow up announcement, Trump revealed that Bill and Hillary Clinton have agreed to distribute all of Trump’s fortune through the Clinton Foundation.

Resignation Talk Already Swirling

March 31, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

OK, y’all, it’s already started: Michael Steele is advising clients to bolster relationship with Mike Pence, says Trump won’t finish his term.

Also, former Clinton staffer and 3 time presidential campaign veteran Claude Taylor has tweeted that he’s talked to a very reliable source who says that, in the face of Flynn flipping, Trump is considering all options, including resignation.

I personally believe this is way early, but the resulting talk is in the correct direction.

 

Karma.

As JJ has already reported, attorney for former Trump advisor, Mike Flynn, is trying to trade his testimony for immunity.  As a reminder where this guy came from, I’ll just leave this right here:

Karma is a B*tch (Sorry Momma).
