But then lots of shoes dropped, as he rescinds the rights of The Transgendered, wants to expand our Nuclear Arsenal, and kills off the First Amendment! So, in other words, his 'revelations' on Africans Americans was just for show.

WHAT NEXT, IMMIGRANTS HELPED MAKE AMERICA GREAT? Nah, just kidding, on that not even King Joffrey would lie. Wait I shouldn’t write that, because as we all know, he lies about everything. I mean the man’s heart might shatter from too much reality. Yesterday on the view as they discussed our President’s decision on rescinding President Barack Obama’s Executive Action on transgender students in regards to which bathrooms they could use, from just a few months a go. What got me was how they were upset that Donald “lied” to the American people on this, since during the campaign he said he would fight for LGBTQ rights. Hm, of course hearing them squawk about this lie, one of thousands made me sit up, cause I seem to recall how he couldn’t get the initials correct. How people would make fun of him because of his rearranging of the letters or how he would have fits trying to pronounce them. I’m sorry, whenever the initials crossed his lips, it looked to me like he had just taken a bite out of a steaming pile of horse manure. What was interesting about the whole thing was according to reports, Betsy DeVos of all people, supposedly was against Donald bringing back a little hatred into our nations schools. But instead of resigning over it, which would have made everyone look differently at her public school hating backward thinking brain, she bowed down and took it up the ass to save her job. So she could implement her vision for charter schools across the nation, or better yet, the end of Public Schools in America for good. 

So the same week where the citizens of the world thought that maybe their was a glimmer of humanity in the orange spray tanned leader of the free world, by first visiting the African American History Museum where he learned about how members of the African American community have lived and died to help forge this great nation into what it is today. How they suffered and what they contributed, and that not all of them are losers and criminals or worse because of their skin color or whom their parents just happen to have been. Listening to him there, even for a few seconds reading off the teleprompter, may have given some people hope that this seemingly bigoted hater, might maybe have a little heart beating there somewhere. Of course he was reading copy others wrote for him. Shame he hadn’t visited it sooner, perhaps his lies about President Barack Obama and his heinous stand-up routines on the stomp might have been a little less disgusting and racist. 

This was followed a few hours later with Donald Trump actually saying the words “anti-Semitism” without throwing up. It was a stunning reversal from his reprehensible treatment of Jake Turx, an Orthodox Jewish White correspondent, a few days back, who had the nerve to even broach the subject of the rise of Jewish hate crimes in our nation, specifically since he’s been our President. So it appears someone in the White House persuaded Trump he needed to clean up his latest foot in mouth escapade, and for just a few brief seconds the Goose-stepping I imagine him doing alone in his bedroom in the White House was gone from my subconscious. Sadly that was just a momentary blip on his inbred scale. 

Well yesterday more bricks in Donald’s deplorable wall were being cemented into place. First his racist leaning United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions came out for Private Prisons. Because as we know we gotta make money off of our nations slaves, oh excuse me, inmates. Because that’s how they treat the prisoners and from what I hear, they make Federal Prisons seem like country clubs. To make the day even worse, Donald came out and announced that it was time to start a Nuclear Arms race. That’s right, just when we were on the road to removing the dangers of the twentieth century, thanks to our last President and the work of the previous few, Donald decides, nope. Better safe then sorry, seems the big baby needs more expensive toys paid for by everyone else’s taxes. 

As we’ve all witnessed for months Donald lies basically when ever he opens his mouth, and is pissed when reporters call him out on it. Now just quoting him has become fake news according to the Trumpeters. But if you fictionalize what he does and says and make him out to be the Second Coming, then you are now the only media allowed in The White House Press Conferences, all others are the “enemy” of the state. Today the latest wake-up call shoved in our faces, proving our nation died on Election day was dropped upon a unsuspecting nation. Quietly right after Donald’s latest big election celebration speech at CPAC, well instead of another press conference run by Sean Spicer, which I have given up watching live. I think sitting through each one is seriously shaving years off of my life. So now I see what is discussed during the Press Conferences after wards on television and online before I witness the clips. I mean how much road kill can anyone take? Anyway instead of the usual nuttiness, today it turns out that the news outlets that blow Donald are now the ones allowed to ask questions and report what is discussed and those who dare to call Donald out when he’s bad, are ostracized and aren’t permitted to attend the Press Gaggle. Now this would be bad when ever, but seeing how Trump has been sowing the seeds of this for months seriously angered me upon hearing about this latest attack against the very fabric of our democracy. To bar, news outlets such as The Huffington Post, The New York Times, BBC, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Daily News, Politico, and BuzzFeed, who actually report news and facts and have real sources as opposed to what Donald wants his sheep to believe. If you’re upset about hearing who was left out, and I only listed the most notable, the ones actually allowed in was a who’s who of right-leaning conspiracy garbage spewers including Breitbart, One America News Network, and the Washington Times. I must mention, there were several major news organizations allowed into the room, including ABC, Bloomberg, CBS, FOX, NBC and Reuters. But my sense in this, eventually one by one he’s gonna cut out outlets till all we get are his favorites, who will spin his lies into gold. And we all know how much he loves his gold. Of note and we should cheer them, The Associated Press and Time Magazine were given their golden tickets, but decided against it. Making a statement I hope the rest of the press corps follows. I’m sorry, this is not permissible. I must mention that the talking heads of the Republican party are siding with King Joffrey on this. Ari Fletcher who served as White House Press Secretary for President George W. Bush argued that Donald Trump had probably given more press meetings then anyone in history. He does them on the plane, in the airport, blah blah blah. As with everything, what ever Donald Trump does no matter how despicable is fine by them. But if a Democrat sneezes, it's Impeachment.

One last thing about yesterdays terrible day, turns out King Joffrey’s White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus might have been a bad boy himself. It appears that he’s been illegally contacting the FBI, trying to influence their investigation into Russia’s involvement into the Trump campaign and of course our last election for President. Seems Reince is repeating the sins of Republicans past. That’s right, right out of the playbook of the Nixon White House, made infamous because of a Hotel called Watergate. You see his contacting the Justice department and requesting them to come out and publicly shoot down reports by the media about Donald’s associates communicating with Russians during the campaign is a crime. As Rachel Maddow  said on her show, and I’m paraphrasing, ‘Was it nefarious or are they simply incompetent? And what’s worse?’ This is the same crime that took down Nixon. So Reince helped Donald during the campaign to get elected, and now he’s trying to do it again, I guess during his victory tour. Seriously is anyone inside that deplorable basket of losers that Donald Trump has collected not a loser or worse. Speaking of worse, aren’t the Republicans glad they rushed through the voting of Scott Pruitt, King Joffrey’s choice to run the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Seems Scott has a real skeleton in his closet. You see the then Attorney General of Oklahoma, Pruitt, may have signed off on using illegal drugs in a botched execution of a Clayton Lockett, a 38-year-old convicted murderer. Unfortunately for Clayton, Pruitt trying it seems to help his polling numbers needed this execution for the upcoming election, so instead of waiting for something to replace the now unavailable drugs to end Lockett’s miserable life he approved an unproven or accepted drug. Whoops. Lastly, lets finish todays diatribe discussing who many think is the real brains behind the gold curtain in the Oval office, Steve Bannon, or Stephen Kevin Bannon, as I discovered his full name to be while researching him. Finally, something that made me shut my television off. That’s right, Steve Bannon. I guess I should thank him for being well him. I’m serious here, I woke up, finally had the energy to turn on my television, wanted to see what was on the news. Well, after switching to all of them and discovering he was on every single one. I simply had to shut it off. Took me about 3 minutes and that was all I could take. Of course later I discovered i missed the most important moment of the day, when the so-called alt-President revealed that all of Donald’s cabinet choices are put in place to destroy their appointed divisions. Hence Betsy DeVos was brought in to destroy Public School. Seems he came out an announced ‘his’ plans to destroy our nation from within. Which was when it hit me about the News blackout that the Trumpeters are trying to pull. They attacked and labeled real news and real reporting as fake, lying every step of the way. The same way Trump got into the White House and seemingly earned his billions or millions, obviously none of us will ever know his true wealth. What they pulled then is what they are pulling now, it is pretty amazing how simple their playbook is attack, attack, attack, accuse, accuse, accuse and always against those seeing through their lies. Then as the truth starts to float to the surface, their tar and feathering of the messengers of truth makes the truth-tellers seems like liars. They did the same thing to Hillary Clinton. Well lets hope what they successfully did to take down what should have been the first woman President of The United States, finally loses its success and these treasonous fools get taken away, hopefully dragged by their toes or other assorted appendages till they get their just desserts. Or most likely, no matter their sentences, they one by one eventually become paid talking heads on Fox faux news and the vicious cycle of brain dead former politicians who turn into talking heads can begin again.

So is Karma biting Trump in the ass in 2017 for his possible Impeachable crimes against the state, and is anyone surprised?

YOUR THE PUPPET! NO SIR, YOU ARE! How ironic that Hillary Clinton of all people called it best on national television, in front of millions during their debates. Seems less then a month in, everything she asserted has possibly been revealed as not conspiracy, but fact! Sadly the people preferred his bullshit and not her reality. Now Donald John Trump, the newly elected 45th President of the United States, is being revealed to be either in cahoots with Putin or his unwilling accomplice, or maybe even worse, simply a fool. Who like another Republican blowhard, Governor Chris Christie still argues he knew nothing about Bridgegate and that somehow his closest advisers all worked behind his back to do such a horrible thing, he argues trivialities instead discussing the crimes that could have been committed. At least now, he's not making a joke about it which was his first response when his personal Waterloo, first hit the fan. So like the New Jersey putz, we have to believe DJT was out of the loop too or that a crime never actually occurred, for what now appears to be a widespread talk fest between members of the Trump White House and Russian operatives working under the Russian President. Seems to me they were playing the telephone game with Vladimir's minions and if you want to believe his spiel, the man on top was too busy tweeting on his unsecured phone to get into hijinks with his minions and missed out on all the fun to have noticed. So far lucky for him the leaks haven't revealed any of his conversations with the Soviet leader, that said, it was reported that when he recently spoke to the Russian President, the tape was turned off. So now we don't have anyway of knowing what they spoke about. Hm, isn't that a crime and what is he hiding on that one? But again, with everything else thats happening, that little oh oh hasn't become an issue yet.

Of course Trump much like Richard Nixon did is arguing the crimes that Gen. Flynn did wasn't a crime, he was simply doing his job. He was just calling up all the nations of the world and spreading DJT's words of love and community. Sure. But those who illegally leaked it, those are the criminals in Washington. Thats his deflection with this one, lets go after the illegal leakers, as opposed to the crime they reveal. Which is the opposite of what he said the entire campaign. Then it was all leaking good, but what was on the leaks mattered! Remember Donny? But as always with him, what he says and what he does isn't the same. And when his same is reported, Donald whines that the news is fake. When he argues how mean to him that the media is, when all t hey are doing is showing the video. When the media doesn't just fall in line, like Fox fax news does all the time, then they are the enemy. As opposed to simply reporting the facts and not what you demand us to believe.

According to him, the leaking is criminal, but the conversations with Russians were just something he ordered Flynn to do. In fact during his Press Conference from Hell, he actually said, that 'if Flynn hadn't called Russia up, I would have ordered him to make the call'. The fact that people like Jason Chaffetz or Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell want to ignore the ramifications of the leaks and only argue Trump's deflection makes Donald's possible ties with Putin even worse. Because unless they are just soulless party-over-country ingrates, their continued alignment with the actions of our Mad King, make it seem that some of them or all of them are in bed with Vladimir too. Wouldn't that be sad to discover that not only are the Republicans in our Government bastards who only care about themselves and their pocketbooks, and of course the joy of hurting others who don't have it as good. They hurt everyone but their inner circle, and they would probably hurt those too if they weren't a necessary evil. If they are in bed with Donald, that makes them even worse, treasonous turncoats who deserve a special place in Hell, one worse then the one I'm already expecting them to go to eventually. 

I mean wow. I mean I was kind of expecting something would hit the fan eventually, but its still Winter. Its still February people! I guess in dog years, I mean, Trump years, less then a month is equal to decades of misery for the rest of us. I should mention, even though I kind of expected this, I was and am still hoping desperately that I was and am wrong about him. That somehow he will turn out to be a genius and he will fix all that is wrong with our nation, hopefully in the right way. Because if my feelings on the big guy, which scare the dickens out of me are true, the shit that's hit the fan so fine will be forgotten shortly in a Nuclear winter like none of us have even lived or died through before.

Hm, three weeks and three Floridian vacations, on us. What a grateful country we are, that we love our newest leader so much that we happily spend our hard earned taxpayers money to fete our King Joffrey in the manner he is accustomed to. Which would be funny if we didn't bring up the fact that as far as we know the man hasn't paid taxes in over two decades! But we the people can and sadly will pay all his expenses. What goes without saying is how obnoxious that is, but whats even more troubling is not just the lavish spending but that he actually might outdo George Walker Bushes in the number of vacation days he does take away from the White House. Which sadly seems to be Donald's mission, to out do the worst President in our nation's history seemingly in every aspect. 

It has been reported that his trips to Mar-a-Lago on his weekend getaways, cost the taxpayers in our nation more then $3 million apiece. Remember he's not going to a Days Inn, our new King is living like a King on our dime, and he's not alone. Which is obnoxious, because Trump went after President Barack Obama, on too many occasions about his too many timeouts. Tweeting how our President was wasting precious taxpayers money. The, 'if he was President' how he wouldn't have the time to take a vacation being too busy doing the people's business. I could quote them, but you get the drift. If you want to get yourself riled up, there's always google to search yourself. Of course attacking a sitting President for taking a vacation or two is nothing new they even bitched about good old George Washington, yes I googled searched that bit of history and yes I discovered it actually happened. Sadly like some of the other attacks against President Obama, the attacks about his vacations seemed veiled in racist tones by most. Like all of his other accusations, he went after President Obama for doing something, and of course, he's not only do it, but taking it to another level.

Before Donald won the big show, he and his people acted like Trump was the king of the world even before there was still no way in Hell he was gonna win the election. We all scoffed at them, well I did. But once he won any niceties were thrown away, gone and their fantasies, or is that insanities have scarily now taken over most in Washington. A quasi 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' has slowly been taking place right in front of our eyes for a while now. It began with the Tea Party uprising a decade ago and has now morphed into whatever DJT has unleashed. These Pod people, known as Trumpeters are in command, as they quickly start taking over the masses. While whats left of the sane people are running in the streets protesting, or my case writing a blog warning people of the invaders who are stealing people's souls and transforming our once Democratic nation into what eventually could be another Nazi Germany or a under Putin control. Even the so-called normal Republicans are now bowing down to his excellency's most trivial demands. Throwing out any semblance of American values for a pseudo dictatorship by obeying whatever he decrees. Seemingly when King Joffrey or one of his Trumpeters discuss one of his Proclamations it is now the law of the land without any vetting. Screw the law, the Constitution, common sense or most importantly how it effects everything else on Earth. Be it man, animal or land mass. The only defense we have now is the courts. But with the Republicans running the show, eventually even the Supreme Court could be transformed into his puppets and what ever safety net that remains could be gone.

And that doesn't begin to discuss the money that we the people are throwing away, while Melania and the kid lives in New York. In their Palace, as they disrupt thousands of peoples daily lives, and hundreds of businesses, so they can keep thousands of miles away from our President. Plus there's the issue with his grown children who work in and out of the White House. Who do business all over the globe, and because they are the children of the President, all of their travels have to be protected, and you guessed it, we the people are fronting those bills too. What's not really being discussed, at least loudly enough yet to make it a political issue is, a lot of these trips his grown children are making are for Trump's businesses, not the nations. And since DJT hasn't divested himself from his businesses, he will be making profits from these journeys and business deals. Hence the American people are paying his business expenses and he's the only one profiting from them. Isn't that a problem? Doesn't that make you want to sit up and go, hm, someone in power make this stop. Even if you voted for him. Arrest him already. Or at least lets have a discussion about it. But so far silence on the Hill. 

A few days back on CNN, an Eli Lake, was discussing Flynn and actually accused Obama "holdovers' working in the White House of being the leakers. In his opinion, it made total sense, I mean none of the Trumpeters would ever do that, right? Like DJT's asinine comments that there were 3 to 5 million illegal or dead voters in his winning campaign, and all of them, all, voted for Hillary. Donny, first prove the numbers actually happened as opposed to you hearing it from one of your imaginary friends. Then if you can prove it, then showcase all of them actually voted for her as opposed to you. But as always with those who argue for Donald, no facts or evidence was given or none is necessary. We are just supposed to take their word for it, we are all supposed to be one of his pod minions, I guess because they say its so. At least this Eli Lake, didn't name anyone, putting a target on their heads for the inbred fools out there who believe its there right to hurt or destroy those who disagree with them. Because in their minds, only their beliefs hold any weight in our lives. I should mention that on this weeks episode of Bill Maher, Jack Kingston was on and threw out that assumption too. That Holdovers from the Obama administration were the leakers. But his stupidity was in the midst of a bigger conversation and sadly his stupidity wasn't slapped back. I however screamed at my television, "Fuck you!" 

Which is basically my response to all of the Trumpeters. Simply FU, for deciding we needed a King to run our nation and not a President. FU to those who sold out our nation for the little power it afforded you. FU for the pain and agony you are gonna cause millions more then you've already done. And FU for ruining Hillary Clintons chance to showcase what she could have done as President of these United States. One month in, seriously what did you guys do? For that and for unleashing the Donald on all of us, FU till you all leave this Earth and spend the rest of your eternities in Hell which is where you all belong.

And it seems Flynn shouldn’t have been so gung ho on locking Hillary up, since it looks like the traitor himself might be the one who winds up in a prison cell.

WELL MAYBE THEY WILL EVENTUALLY GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER, but so far, the Trump Regime certainly has been as bad as I expected, which for me is frightening. Its just amazing to me that they actually are as bad as I feared, I mean how is that possible? I mean my estimation was just a guess, I mean homestly no one knew what to expect. For all of our opinions of him, on how he acted during the campaign or what we expected he would do once he got in, none of us knew if what we had witnessed would continue or morph into what ever he might transform into. But, man so far, no surprises at all. The only surprise is how stunned everyone seems to be. Why may I ask? He’s reigning our nation exactly how he ran his campaign and his business empire, and probably how he run’s his private life. So why like everything else in the last year or two is anyone still surprised? “Lock Her Up”  no sir, lets lock you up! So ironies of ironies, or is that Karma is a beautiful bitch, or however you want describe it, Donald John Trump’s National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned amidst the latest and biggest yet brouhaha a brewing in The White House. Seems one of Trump’s closest advisers possibly broke the law and at least lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his conversation with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak regarding sanctions the administration had placed on Russia. Whats troubling about the whole thing the calls happened on the same day President Barack Obama retaliated for alleged Russian hacking. The Obama administration announced it was imposing sanctions and expelling 35 Russian diplomats from the U.S.  Basically the phone calls, shouldn’t have happened. What’s most troubling, is even after this Intel was forwarded to the White House, to the man himself, his minion wasn’t let go immediately, preferably in shackles. “Lock her up, that’s right!” Remember the Republican National Committee, how Flynn, attacked Hillary Clinton on the stage, practically foaming at the mouth. Well I do. “Damn right, exactly right. And you know why we’re saying that? We’re saying that because, if I, a guy who knows this business, if I did a tenth of what [Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton] did, I would be in jail today.” From your mouth to God’s ears buddy, from your treaonous mouth to God’s ears.Seems according to Jason Chaffetz, and most of the Republican talking heads, nothing, absolutely nothing, Donald John Trump says or does is bad, simply because he’s the President. No questions asked is the new motto in Trumpland. He won the prize, screw anything that might mar his excellency. In fact questioning herr leader in the Trumpeter’s playbook is now gonna be a crime! Just imagine if President Barack Obama did anything at all like this, the cries for Impeachment would’ve already been spoken about on the floors of Congress. Heck, Impeachment probably would be replaced with a few suggestions of a lynching or two. Shame that belief of absolute power wasn’t accorded to President Obama, I can think of a lot of people that I would’ve loved to be seen taken away in shackles. Cause you know that, might be coming soon in the streets of our nation, if Donald’s Alt-right firends have any say in the matter. Of course, one Republican, Sen. Rand Paul came out and argued that ‘It Makes No Sense’ for Republicans to investigate Republicans. “I just don’t think it’s useful to be doing investigation after investigation, particularly of your own party,” he said. “We’ll never even get started with doing the things we need to do like repealing Obamacare if we’re spending our whole time having Republicans investigate Republicans. I think it makes no sense.” Really sir, sounds a lot like the folks in t he Republican party who didnt want to investigate George Walker Bush on WMD’s, cause we were so exhausted by the years of investigations on Bill Clinton. So now after going after Hillary Clinton for years, now you want us to forgive and forget another Republican fuck-up. Sorry Rand, not this. Not again. The American people have had enough of the Republican excuses. Member sof your party actually possibly colluded with Russia to steal the election. This one isn’t gonna be swept under the carpet.Amazingly Michael Flynn isn’t the only one dealing with problems in King Joffrey’s kingdom. It was almost hysterical watching Jason Chaffetz’s face having to acknowledge Kellyanne Conway’s sales pitch for Ivanka’s clothing line was against the rules. Seems she might actually get punished or was punished, but honestly what was the punsihment? And what I find fascinating is seeing her on televison after being counseled, and nobody is talking about it! No one is bringing it up during their interviews with her. Of course with the Trump daily insanity, her mistake did happen days a go, so in modern political speak, that was so last century. I guess maybe if we get the chance to breath, that story will be brought up. Probably when its her turn to face the piper. But, whatever the punishment is, it was the first time one go Donald’s Trumpeter’s or the man himself since that awful day in November was publically flogged. I keep pondering if the election of Donald John Trump was something we as a nation had to go through, otherwise why? Seriously, how did this happen? I mean if there is a God and if what we do is preordained, what if King Joffrey sitting on his throne in Mar-a-Largo was in fact God’s will, as so many of his followers seem to think. Maybe DJT doing top secret business over dinner was destined to happen, and the zealots who attacked Hillary Clinton because of her use of a private server, would simply poo poo his discussing Korea’s unexpected missile test with his close circle of deplorables in front of an entire restaurent filled with dinners. Maybe we as a people needed this badly, to kick us in the rear to wake us up to people like him and his followers. To check ourselves into seeing what was outside of our little bubble. All of us. Another one of Trump’s surrogrates, one Stephen Miller seems to have an issue with absolute power. “The power of the President will not be questioned.” Oh really sir, does this rule go for every president or simply for your boss? Because two things bother me about that statement that you keep repeating as if you’ve been brainwashed to say one thing. Before I continue, I find it kind of ironic that Stephen shares a striking resemblance to Adolf Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, just saying. Which of course goes with Donald’s whole Alt-Right, Nazi sensibility. That said, first he’s a President, not a King, and no he doesn’t have infinite power. Second, I seem to recall President Barack Obama and his relationship with the members of the Republican Party and their followers, obey him was not part of their duties. It was pretty much the opposite of what your patriotic friends actually did. Its very easy to recall them berating him at every turn, even attacking him to his face. Actually accusing him of anything and everything with the assertion that he wasn’t legitimate or even deserved to weld the extraordinary powers that the leader of the free world is bestowed. Nothing in the last eight years, the entire tenure of maybe our last American President, Barack Obama did, or said, merited a conversation about Impeachment. Of couese, everytime he did one of his Executive Acions, I seem to recall a few nutjobs in the Republican party cry Impeachment so yes there was calls for it. Talk about hypocritical, basically Chaffetz like the rest of the Trumpeters discuss our new President as if he was the second coming, and like their zeal at discussing their faith in their gods, their leader can do no wrong.So Jason Chavez , basically gave Donald carte blanche to do any thing he wishes. Executive privilege I guess. I seem to recall before the election him threatening to go after Hillary Clinton even if she won the presidency, could you imagine if she had actually done a few Executive Actions, the witchhunt would have stated on day one. Seems the Republicans are trying to kill time and trying their damnest to run out the clock with hearings on Trump and his surrogates. As Rand Paul suggested, people want the Republicans to do the poeple’s business and not investigate themselves. Well too bad sir, it appears you and your brethren allowed a tryant to come in, with the aid of a certain Russian leader. So what you want, I honestly don’t care. The American people wanted the swamp cleaned out, too many people believed the con, that said, they stil lwant the swamp cleared out, and if that swamp included Donald and/or all of his deplorables, so be it. You went after Hillary Clinton for political reasons concocted by a media empire, and now we the Amercan people want you to go after our newest American President, for similar reasons. Except this time, the reason isn’t concocted but real, and this time so is the crime could eventually make a President resign.

Oh, about that Yemen debacle, seems their excuses for it are making me think Donald's Congressional hearings are gonna make Hillary's Benghazi 'trials' seem like a walk in the park.  

WASN'T IT JUST WEEKS AGO when living in America felt well kind of wonderful? Even with all its faults and all of the bad things that have recently occurred, even with all the scares that the talking heads keep trying to put into our heads, the feeling of being American, of living my life as a citizen of these United States has always made me feel special. I've never shied away from placing my hand over my heart when we pledged allegiance to the flag. I can't sing to save my life, but when our National Anthem starts playing my insecurities about the quality of my vocal abilities go out the window, and the pride in me can be heard throughout my off key vocals. Knowing how lucky I was to be born here with all those rights has always made me proud. Even with one political party trying to remove practically all of the reasons that our country was great in the first place. That was until our most recent election, when Hillary didn't win and the bottom dropped out from under me and seemingly reality.

Before that unbelievably traumatic day, I honestly hadn't felt this good about our nation since the very early days of the George Walker Bush tenure. Right before that fateful day when the fresh faced President came out and lied to the nation about WMDs and took us into this current never ending war era. Being attacked on 9/11 was one of our nations worst days in its history, right up their with Pearl harbor, but like that hot June day in 1941, when Japan got us to war the nation rallied. Even those who backed Vice President Al Gore felt that patriotism when the worst President our nation has ever seen came out and had the greatest moment of his presidency. Yes worst, its too soon to give that title to DJT, since his actions haven't done any real damage yet, except of course his recent Immigration ban, thats hurt people. And of course the two Americans who died in Yemen, but more about that later. 

Even those who hate the man have to admit what George Walker Bush did will be tough to top. Our little Trumpster hadn't lied us into war, we were attacked and entered it. In the case of 9/11 we all know that GWB lied and pushed us into war, with the wrong nation! Its amazing that even with that, my love of country never faded. It seems many have forgotten what our world was like before GWB, took us into war, how great everything was, even after he became President. Look what President Bill Clinton had accomplished, righting the wrongs that the previous Bush had done and setting on a course for a great future. 

But all that said, throughout the George Walker Bush years, I still had pride in my country, even after Vice President Al Gore's presidency was stolen by the Supreme Court and that fellow named Chad, ruined what could have continued the ride that President Bill Clinton had taken us on. Even then I never had fear for our futures. I never actually believed the person running our nation might is seriously insane as I do now. Whats happening now is something completely different then has ever occurred in our nations history and where that takes us is no place I'd ever want to be. It appears we are being led by a pack of war mongers who want to take us to wars with friends and enemies alike. A group of Muslim haters who want to cram down our throats the worst traits of humanity that one could possibly conceive. Donald is not only packing his cabinet and most trusted advisers with a basket filled with anti-Semitic deplorable bigots, they all simply make up 'alternate' facts to cover up their mistakes, while trying to deflect their latest move to take away peoples rights and tear apart anything else they can think of. Each day another Executive Action is announced, and each day a new protest erupts. Besides taking us into war, at least so far in words, threats and accusations, DJT has seriously been playing Russian Roulette with our nation's future. 

After we survived President George Walker Bush's tenure and as we've lived through the presidency of Barack Obama, that love of country grew even stronger in me, as I watched him do the great things that he did with grace, class and intelligence, seemed to make my love of country grow even more. Watching our nation, overcome the Bush years, and seemingly thrive made me smile whenever I looked at our flag. I noticed when I sang our national anthem, and pledged allegiance to our flag, I've never said it or placed my hand over my heart and recited it with more pride in my life. After 9/11, after the war years began, as our nation seemingly teetered on the age of destruction, my love of country never faltered, not once. But now all of that seemingly is being washed away with a vengeance like we've never seen before.  

Right now one of the only things that are keeping that flame alive for me at the moment are the thousands upon thousands of men, women, and children, of all sizes, shapes, colors and religions, and all sexual orientations, who keep rising up and protesting in numbers which are seriously unprecedented. Each time the Trumpet does his latest outlandish unprecedented action or insults another world leader, or causes an international incident which could eventually lead to a world war I can actually sense a disturbance in the force. I seriously have a bad feeling about this. As every day Donald breaks the rules with his potential earnings since taking over the Oval office, now estimated at a billion dollars, and I can't believe that any of it is being allowed! Especially after the witch hunt they pulled with Hillary Clinton. We watch disbelievingly as the Republicans sit back quietly or worse relish in Donny's insanity while they get seemingly everything they've ever dreamed of. Some come out and act disturbed or even upset, but when it counts they all fall in line and fall all over themselves as they go about destroying pretty much everything about our world that has evolved over the last hundred years. I mean look at Trump's nominee's and they still are all voting them in one by one, except sometimes one or two. 

All that said, the pride I feel with each new protest gives me hope, that something great can come out something so dreadful. That what seemed lost, actually might be the beginning of the next stage in our nations future and not the last days of life on planet Earth, which is how I've been feeling lately. The other day on Facebook I actually wrote that I was ashamed of America. I was embarrassed that this man was our President. Of what we did to our selves. After I wrote the words it felt like I had been punched in the gut, and then the bomb dropped and what has been a really bad month, turned into something that I still can't believe. Seems out left field we just might have a crisis brewing that isn't located in Washington, but could be a result of all the crazy speak by Trump. Like maybe we're just gonna "steal" Iraq's oil like we should've the last time we had the chance to. Well maybe its just a coincidence or bad timing, but now Iran is playing games and has been put "on notice" by Donald. for their surprise missile test a few days back. To add fuel to the fire, during a conversation with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, Donald threatened to send American troops into Mexican to clean up all the "bad hombres" in their country. No really. Plus on a separate phone call, Trumpet insulted Malcolm Turnbull, the Prime Minister of Australia possibly destroying the special relationship that our nations have shared for decades.

They say it doesn't really matter who sits in that powerful chair. Really? Well when a President tells the Republican congress to take the nuclear option, if the Democrats try to filibuster his Supreme Court Nominee, Neil Gorsuch, and then the Majority, led by Orrin Hatch, actually used the nuclear option on a number of Trump cabinet nominees including Steve Mnuchin and Tom Price, playing games, and the Republicans all voted them in. I understand that most politicians vote down their party line, I get that. But come on, look at the nominees, can I get a WTF! Which of course means that from now till DJT leaves the White House for the last time, or if the Democrats take back the majority in the House and Senate, the Republicans will jam every bill they allow to be voted on. Every time the Democrats try to put a bill up to stop anything the majority Republicans shut them down. I mean what does Trump have to do to be taken down? This could get very scary. I see many years of legal battles to come with many of DJT's Executive actions and well as the bills they get jammed through.

The other day I was speaking to a friend who while not a fan of Donald Trump didn't think Hillary Clinton should be President either. This friend throughout the campaign tried to wake me up to the reality of what he saw out there, how I was the one in the bubble of disbelief of this Donald Trump phenomenon, and he predicted that DJT was gonna win. Well, while we were 'hanging' he took out a list that the papers showcased of the Executive Actions that the President has done in his brief time in office, and explained why the majority of the items were actually a good thing. He described each action in terms that made them sound good. Making me sit back and take a different look at what I consider the beginnings of the of our democracy. I tried to argue back about the consequences of his actions, that if he really looked at the whole story behind each one, not just the talking point. But he pushed back and explained that if you looked at the actions with the eye of a businessman, DJT's decisions have actually been a positive. I must admit, that sometimes when I listen to the Trumpeters logic, it does make sense, sometimes at first. Once in a while I go, hm, but usually when or if it make you go, well that actually makes sense, eventually or almost immediately you realize that it's just another bold faced lie told straight to our faces. 

When you listen to the talking heads argue their alternative facts, the maddening thing about them is, no matter what you throw at them, no matter the facts, the proof, the video, they always come up with something that works their narrative. Some talking point that defeats reality or at least makes his followers drool at their latest savior sent down by the big guy in t he sky or on that Cross. Kellyanne Conway's outrageous lie about the Bowling Massacre, imagine creating a terrorist attack out of her ass to deflect a story, or better yet her greatest blunder, those pesky 'Alternative Facts' that has become the tagline of Trumps entire political career. These liars will say anything to brush back against their most egregious actions. The highlight of the week for me with Kellyanne was when the Trumpeters tried to book her on CNN, to help defuse her alternative lie, and CNN said no. Yes! I mean after what he's pulled during the campaign, and especially at Trump's first Press conference, when he went off on CNN as "fake News". I so wish Jim Acosta of CNN had stood up and made some kind of statement, or simply walked out right then and there, instead of practically begging for a chance at the party. But at least its a start. Another little something that gives me hope that this cloud will be lifted, and believe me, right now I'll take anything, no matter how small it is. 

In a strange twist, it feels a little like we are living in the latest season of The Walking Dead. I know, huh? What I mean, and sorry if I spoil it to those out there who haven't been keeping up with the few remaining members of society who seem to have humanity left in them. Well the main characters have been going through Hell, much as our nation has. In a lot of ways I feel we as a country have been the victim of Negan's favorite weapon of choice, Lucille his trusty barbed wired baseball bat. Without giving anything else away, at the climax of the first half, hope appears to be on the horizon. That even with all the bad that has recently occurred, there's a probability that Rick and his fellow survivors will prevail.

Now about Yemen, it appears the Yemen military action could be the thing that finally gets the world to say enough is enough. I know I keep writing that here, one can hope right? It appears that the botched military strike, which killed two Americans, including an eight-year-old girl, might've been done for personal financial gain. And to top it off as proof that the mission was a success, they put out a video showcasing it. But as usual with the Trumpeters, theirs a major screw-up, as the video they released was already available on YouTube and was actually from an incident ten years a go. When that revelation came out, the excuse was well that that didn't matter, the same people were involved so what if the video showcased an entirely different incident. What? Talking about killing my buzz! Talk about this era's version of WMDs. As this theory suggested, the plan was to clean up the area, so that Yemen would succumb to Donald's whims, cause you see Donald has lots of plans to build lots of expensive skyscrapers in Yemen. Which means Trump will make even more money from the businesses that he isn't supposed to have anything to do with, or profit from, or anything. The sad fact, that this farfetched theory with everything we've seen so far, seems more probable then Donald's winning the Presidency. But with every thing with DJT I'll believe nothing till the man's actually gonna face the music. But I think this time, after what we've all been though, this time, the people will stop it, peacefully or forcefully. Wouldn't that be something, a coup, the people rising up and removing the monster in the Capital. Oh well, that fairy tale is really for another day.
