The Latest Shiny Thing

March 27, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Last week was one of the most disastrous weeks of Cheeto’s administration where his biggest promise, kicking 24 million people off of healthcare, came crashing down to decisive defeat.  Republicans, knowing he actually is nuts and would sign anything they put in front of him, finally woke up and decided that taking healthcare away from their voters would actually lower their chances for re-election, their only true goal.

So, CJ put that promise back on the shelf and has now moved to making government “sleek”, by assigning his son in law, Jared Kushner, to yet another new job.  So far, his primary job has been trying to keep his father in law from chopping up the Resolute desk and using it for kindling to burn down the White House, and so far, that has been pretty much a full time job.  Now young Kushner is going to head up the shiny new White House Office of American Innovation, a supposed think tank made up of an amalgamation of billionaire inventors and business people who have been charged with making the US government run like a business.  Of course, the US Government is not a business and CAN’T be run like one, but no matter, here’s our new shiny thing to talk about while the Congress continues to ignore the actual threat to the US government – the Russians.

I’ll give this one two weeks or so, then we’ll be consumed with another incendiary tweet from His Orangeness.

Jesus.  No, really.  Jesus.

Mike Flynn just resigned in disgrace.  One down, dozens to go.

Can I get an amen?

 

Trump Found Texas

February 07, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Asset forfeiture is a damn mess in Texas.  Law enforcement can seize the property of those arrested for a crime and have not been found guilty.  That means that they can take your stuff without due process.

Law enforcement says it really, really helps them with convicting drug dealers and terrorists.

Yeah, but … it would also help them convict me if I was arrested with trumped up (see what I did there?) charges. If they took all my assets, I couldn’t hire a lawyer or an investigator, eat actual food before trial, or pay the electricity bill.

The sheriff of Rockwall County, Texas (think suburb of Dallas) went to the White House and met with Trump.  Trump loves asset forfeiture and, coincidently, so does the sheriff.

Trump announced to the public at this meeting that he would like to know the name of the state senator supporting reforming asset forfeiture …

 “President Donald Trump invited the sheriff of a small Texas County to ‘destroy’ the career of a state senator who sought to ban a controversial law enforcement practice by naming the lawmaker during a White House meeting.”

The issue is being debated in the Texas State Senate. Republican State Senator Konni Burton and Democratic State Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa are the two people leading this fight in the Texas Senate.

Being that Konni represents a district near the sheriff’s county, and she is the Republican fighting for due process, it’s most likely that Konni is the one who Trump wants to destroy. Of course, Konni is a woman so destroying her puts another notch in Trump’s belt.

Sumbitch.

Look, I am no Konni Burton cheerleader. She’s anti-choice and kisses up to Greg Abbott, but for Trump to use the White House to “destroy” a damn state senator he doesn’t even know, is … yeah, crazy. It’s crazy.

I don’t think Trump meant Democratic State Senator Chuy Hinojosa.  Chu is a damn American hero and Trump couldn’t touch him with a fifty foot pole. In fact, Chuy might use “Trump wants to destroy me” on his campaign literature.

Thanks to Kyle for the heads up.

The Supremes

Okay, here’s the deal, I think Donald Trump should be treated just like President Obama.  I think Trump should not be allowed to pick a justice in the last year of his presidency either.

So, let’s wait a year and see if Trump is still around. I’m betting no.

Comey Gets Taste of Own Medicine

January 12, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: 2016 Election, Sumbitches

Ya’ll remember James Comey, that really nice FBI director who’s letter to Congress about Hillary’s emails 11 days before the election hung over her campaign like a fart in church?  (sorry, Momma) Then remember how he said, “NNNNEEEEVVVVEERRRRR MMMIIIINNNDDDD” several days later? Well.  Looks like Mr. Letter Writer might just get his.  He’s being investigated by the Justice Department for possible political motivation (oh, say it ain’t so, Joe; say it ain’t so); AND, it turns out that his deputy director is also in deep doo-doo because, as he was investigating Hillary, his wife was running for Virginia State Senate.  Apparently he should have recused himself.  They’re also investigating whether someone leaked the info to Hillary’s campaign.  I wonder if they’re going to investigate why Rudy Giuliani knew about the email letter weeks before it hit?
