While We’re All Talking About Those Tweets…

March 14, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Holy Crap, Trump

Almost every day there is some new incendiary tweet from Cheeto Jesus or idiotic declaration by his sidekicks Kellyanne and/or Spicey.  As entertaining as all this nonsense is, there are serious decisions being made to undo years of government policy and practices, dismantle or cripple federal agencies, and create a shadow government that everyday Americans can’t see.  Case in point: a major change to drone warfare policy CJ made on January 21st, ONE DAY after his, er, uh…(urp) inauguration.

The WSJ is reporting that unnamed US officials have disclosed that during his first visit to the CIA, CJ reversed the Obama administration policy on drone strikes.  For disclosure and transparency, Obama had put in place a policy that the CIA use drones for intelligence gathering only.  If they determined a target to be taken out, the military then conducted the actual strike.  The Pentagon would then announce the results of that strike.  Well, no more.  Now, the CIA can pick out and kill targets of choice with no transparency, no accountability.  More alarming, though is the pace that they’re doing it – the Council on Foreign Relations reported earlier this month that drone attacks are up over 400% since CJ took office.  And that’s just the strikes they could find out about.  No telling how many have been done covertly.

So, while the press is chasing the next shiny thing, radical changes to our government are being made behind our backs.  It’s time to be ever vigilant and resist.

 

TwitterFinger and Other Thoughts

January 25, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Author’s Note: Someone last week pinned a new name on Cheeto Jesus – TwitterFinger.  I like it, so will begin using it in addition to my favorite moniker, CJ.

Random Thoughts for today:

Favorite slogan from his aborted run in 2012:

TwitterFinger has been busy.  Besides signing a virtual plethora of Executive Orders (that Republicans hated until January 20, 2017 at 12:01 pm), our senior overcomber has been obsessing over size.  Size really matters, probably because TwitterFinger is a euphemism for TinyFinger.  Anyway, I digress.  Last night, about 9:30, his favorite subject, television ratings, was top of mind:

He congratulated Fox News for apparently having highest ratings during the inauguration. He also couldn’t resist another shot at CNN.  That’s right, folks, the President of the United States is still obsessed with not only ratings, but the inauguration.  Speaking of ratings, here’s one from a couple of nights ago about the same subject:

Here’s another attempt to jab the media in the eye, a photograph of the ceremony which will be hung in the WH briefing room (which he calls press hall).

And lastly, this gem TwitterFinger issued after his awkward CIA appearance bragging about standing ovations and packed house.

Apparently, he forgot to mention (or maybe 140 characters is not enough) that the standing ovations came from paid shills who he brought to cheerlead.

Sad.

 

 

 

UPDATED: And Now We Have Laugh Tracks

January 23, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Alternative Facts, Trump

UPDATED: CBS News has just reported that indeed Cheeto Jesus brought in about 40 of HIS supporters to Langley and packed the first three rows in front of the podium.  About 400 of thousands of CIA staffers came, and there indeed are some at CIA who support him.  The majority, though, were offended by his remarks and the consensus is that he made things worse, not better, despite the gaslighting by his supporters for the press pool cameras.

Did it strike you as odd that the press was laughing and applauding at Cheeto Jesus’s press conference at Cheeto Tower just before the inauguration?  Did it also strike you as even more odd when CIA staff did the same thing during his speech in front of the memorial for agents killed in the line of duty at Langley?  Me, too.

If You Don’t Like the Answer, Shoot the Messenger

As anyone with common sense would know, incoming, uh…urp, president Cheeto Jesus is going to suck (sorry momma) at governing.  To reward his benefactor, Vladimir Putin, CJ has picked his first major twitter battle with the intelligence community, refusing to believe the mountain of evidence that the Russians did indeed hack into DNC and other computers in an effort to sway our national elections. Now that the CIA and other agencies have refused to change their assessment, CJ is now threatening to undo the Director of National Security that was put in place after 9/11 to coordinate the nation’s multiple intelligence agencies.

Apparently CJ has confused his role as Chief Tyrant at Celebrity Apprentice with his role as incoming, uh…urp, president.
