SO NOW…TAPES? THE NIXON SIMILARITIES ARE GETTING SCARY, THE ONLY QUESTION IS WILL IT END THE SAME WAY
Three cheers for the Fourth Estate! In years to come, it may be seen that they saved the United States of America itself!
MY HAT GOES OFF TO THE PRESS POOL at the White House, seriously kudos! I had my doubts during the campaign but those doubts went out the window just about the same time our President’s mental capacity began to become a real issue. I had begun to lose faith in our country, how could a nation which prides itself on its place on Earth as the beacon of freedom and democracy turn so quickly into what appears to be a third world dictatorship? How could so many be fooled so easily into believing so many lies by those who seem to want to turn our nation into a satellite of Russia? When did the bad guy win and why did we allow it to happen right in front of our eyes?
Bill and Hillary Clinton for years had warned of a vast right-wing industry that was created to take them down and people laughed at them. So whose laughing now? Me thinks the Russians are. Watching Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov make light of FBI director Comey’s firing, as he was being escorted into the Oval Office, surely sent a chill up many in America and all over the globe who see what apparently is occurring.We have watched our lives get scarier by the day, or should I write by the hour, seeing the possible takeover of our Democracy by either a foreign nation or by a possibly delusional wannabee tyrant that is either using Russia for his profit and gain or is being used by them. But the most defeating part in the whole experience has been watching an entire section of society closing their eyes to reality. Listening to the media during the campaign, it was seriously hard to stomach the lies spouted by everyone who wasn’t in Hillary’s camp. For all of historical significance of a woman becoming the President, for the most part HIllary Clinton was a traditional candidate and she ran a campaign any political leader would strive for accept the media, the talking heads, the online community didn’t want that. They wanted a show, they wanted shock and awe, and all Hillary could show was her expertise, intelligence and resume and the people turned their backs from her. All the talking heads, ignored the usual campaign issues, the budget, taxes, experience, knowledge of foreign affairs, and focused squarely on Donald Trumps accusations. No matter how insane the lies were, the talking heads would spend days on as many of the charges as possible. Nothing was ever left out, and nothing was discussed about her accomplishments and her proposals. The press followed every crumb the Trumpeters sprinkled, no matter how often the charges were slapped back, proven false, and showcased to be made-up, the media kept bringing them up. It appeared Hillary Clinton couldn’t win. I guess their ruse worked cause by election night they had won in turning a woman most prepared ever to lead this nation into a crooked lying monster by millions of people, many who had loved her only months before.
I’m not saying the reporters on television and in the press didn’t try to report the news. It just appeared when they did, the noise of all the lies and conspiracies so overshadowed what we should have been talking about,. And the more they failed, the more the lies became the truth and facts became fake news. How many times was Kellyanne Conway on television, or any of the other countless hired liars that still refuse to respond with any real answers. It was like a game show for the hosts of their perspective news programs. As one by one each host would allow the liars enough rope to hang themselves, yet each time they pounced on the liars, the Trumpeters seemed to have the talking point to punch back, no matter how farfetched it was.
The Press appeared as useless as our votes did. We had a candidate, now President who spent half his campaign attacking the media and the half attacking Hillary, and the people seemed to eat it up. As the Trumpeters accused Hillary of being crooked, the Republican double downed by warning everyone as many times as possible that if she won the Presidency, they would Impeach on everything until they dragged her body to her eventual prison cell. I mean even I was tired of the attacks, I was one of those political junkies who watched every despicable minute of the entire Benghazi hearings on television, not just the ones featuring the should be President. But I saw them for what they were, a deflection by an entire political party and propaganda machine known as Fox News. The more they talked about this, the less they discussed the nightmare who was gonna be the eventual leader of the free world, a dictator in orange face. That said, what should have been her designing moment, her 11 hour tour de force, smacking down every lie and conspiracy like one would expect from anyone whose every watched her before, didn’t seem to do anything. All we got was how weak she was, how close to death she was, and of course we had that now infamous fainting spell, that made all the lies seem real. See she was a frail dying crook, and boy did the media milk that one. They kept telling us, that we wanted change in Washington. That the change President Barack Obama had promised had failed and Hillary Clinton wanted to bring back more of the same. How could so many forget so quickly about what we had lived through during the presidency of George Walker Bush? How could so many disregard Donald J. Trump’s as well as most of the Republican party who were up for election or reelection in their disgusting racist attacks against our nations first African American President. But they did, and many used all the lies and conspiracies that Donald Trump spread as the reasons.
Looking back now, its pretty stunning how right the Clintons were about the attack that our democracy was under. Turns out that they were just the face of the attack, it wasn’t just them. Now maybe we are discovering too late that our entire way of life is what they were going after. While the attack against President Barack Obama had a lot to do with his race, the real issue with the former President was his policies. As have been obviously showcased by all the Executive Orders that Donald J. Trump has announced. It seems the ‘fake news’ out there on CNN, or MSNBC, or ABC, or CBS, or NBC, or, well you get the drift, were trying their best but nothing seemed to stop whatever Donald Trump was doing. No matter how many ways they went after the big orange faced buffoon, nothing they reported seemed to affect the voters. No matter what they were uncovering and showcasing, their audiences didn’t want to listen, preferring the entertainment of the carnival barker turned Presidential candidate. The audience it seems rather preferred the ‘news’ the way Fox Faux News were informing them. Sadly the more the information came out, the more the now President’s poll numbers grew. It was if the viewers were enjoying this nut job making the grown ups in the room nervous. The worst part was how Hillary Clinton was taken to task for whatever lies and conspiracies they could tarnish her with. Everything was twisted into something evil or crooked, and poor Hillary Clinton sadly was almost forced into an almost weekly apology.
Now lets jump ahead, to our current political situation, at what appears to be a Watergate style unraveling of a President and just like the journalists that took down Richard Nixon, today’s journalists may be doing the exact same thing to our current commander in chief, and all I can do is praise what I’ve been seeing and hearing of them. Everyone makes fun of Sean Spicer and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, as well as the other Trumpeters trying to make sense of the craziness that they have to lie through and mostly failing hysterically. But what I’ve been watching and admiring though the nonsense is how the journalist turned up the heat on the liars. How the pressure is getting to the Trumpeters and how its obviously doing a number on the Mad King in his oval sweat box. Apparently the man is his own worse enemy, seemingly a nervous wreck, each day putting another foot into his own mouth. Lucky for us we have the journalists out there catching every unbelievable development.
Maybe the problem before the election was that all the accusations seemed so unreal, so farfetched that even with all the insanity that we were living through, for whatever reason, this was going just a bit too far. What was so maddening about the while thing was, that as each piece of the puzzle was being connected, the tainting of Hillary, the liars of transforming her into a lying crook in the eyes of many had worked. It appears the liar that she was turned into, wasn’t believed when she was the one telling the truth. The con had worked. The Trumpeters screamed to high heaven that this Russian invasion was just a figment of the criminal mastermind Hillary Clinton, and Donald was simply the savior who could do no wrong. Speaking of Karma, which is whats all the Trumpeters are experiencing right now in spades. I must say it’s been pretty striking watching the media smack down the lies that Sarah Huckabee Sanders or Sean Spicer always try throwing. But now it appears the accusations, the conspiracies have slowly but surely turned out to be real. As the pieces of the puzzle have begun to fill in, the journalists have been connecting the dots and the blood in their eyes and they see the biggest story in their careers staring them in those eyes isn’t cloudy their vision. It has been amazing watching the back and forth between Sean Spicer and the White House Press core, not just enjoying the reporters on the attack, but the fact that they’re allowing it. For all his bravado, he’s trying his best to punch back and win the argument, the fact is the man is way over his head and its so obvious that the hysterics of it are simply sad. That said, the journalists in that room are simply blowing me away daily. Not giving an inch, till the ‘powers that be’ pull their mics.
The day the bottom dropped out of Donald Trump’s presidency, was when he allowed himself to be interviewed by someone other than a Fox Faux News reporter. A real journalist it seems is Donald J. Trump’s Achilles heel. As others have noted, amazing the President handed Lester Holt a folder which had the questions he wanted to be asked, and the anchor without a word placed them under the questions he was gonna be asking. Sorry sir, you may be leader of the free world, but you ain’t in charge of the Forth Estate. Then the man with the nuclear codes showcased again why that is such a bad idea, by revealing that he had three phone conversations with the now former FBI director. According to Trump, James Comey wanted to keep his job, and he wanted to know if he was being investigated for being in cahoots with the Russians. So let’s get this straight the president of the United States asked if he himself was under investigation, and he expects the head of the FBI to tell him the truth about this? And this is supposed to be okay. I thought the man was insane before but I’m sorry, this is just crazy. So far, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan and the rest of the liars are still making excuses for this. Seems the real isn’t real enough and they are still trying to patch the holes that keep leaking, just wondering how many of them will drown as their leader slowing goes under.
Last night, on cable I watched ‘All the President’s Men’ and relived what a great achievement that film was. Not just as a work of art, a movie that has stood the test of time, but as a document showcasing what reporters can do. The important job that these news people really do. Uncovering the truth, discovering the crimes and reporting it to the world. Showcasing most importantly that no one is above the law, and without the Forth Estate, that law would be meaningless. Much like another Oscar winning film ‘Spotlight’ if it wasn’t for a few journalists the crimes of the Church would have never been revealed, the possible crimes of this White House might have been erased out of existence much like they are trying to wipe away former President Barack Obama entire tenure. We have witnessed as Donald J. Trump systemically fired one by one those in pursuit of the truth. We have watched his henchmen like Devin Nunes turn from a Republican with a perfect record to a pariah who tried to play Igor to our Frankenstein Monster of a President.
But thanks to the journalists working today, the people whom Trump has been attacking as fake, it appears, that they have been showcasing that the only thing fake that happening today, is what the President and his Trumpeters are spewing. When or if the hopefully inevitable occurs, and what happened to Richard Nixon happens to Donald Trump, it will clearly be because of the members of the Forth Estate and I for one thank them, because without them, I’m afraid our Democracy would surely be a thing of the past. But because of them, and their dogged nature, our futures look a lot brighter then it currently appears to be.

RICHARD NIXON, I MEAN KING JOFFREY, YOU’RE TOAST!
So Donald fires James Comey because of his handling of Hillary Clinton’s server, as opposed to his investigation in his Russian ties, talk about digging your own grave.
SERIOUSLY COULD WE GET ANY CRAZIER? Wow, just when you think things couldn’t get nuttier, it always does, as Donald J. Trump goes full blown Nixon. One day after the former acting Attorney General Sally Yates testified in front of Congress, the bottom dropped out from underneath FBI director James Comey. Or did it just open a can of worms against the President himself as his inner dictator boiled over a little too much.
Unbelievable, today Sean Spicer came out during his daily Press Briefing with the White House Press Corps and spent a good portion of it, denigrating the former acting Attorney General. Pretty much calling her a woman on the rag, who had to nag her way back to a meeting twice in order to bleed all over the rugs in the White House. Sorry, Donald’s disgusting comments on the former FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly sometimes comes to mind when ever I think about our Mad King. Seems, his disdain for powerful women includes the former acting Attorney General, because the highest law officer in the land was delegated to secretary status. Sean Spicer tried to soil her credibility acting like Sally Yates was simply a busy body. But worse he slandered her as a partisan Clinton backer. Her “unlawful” stoppage of Donald’s “legal” Muslim ban proved Trump was right for firing her. Spicer repeated that mantra several times, tossing the bull that the Republicans in the Senate that queried Sally Yates yesterday had pulled. Seems the talking points have already been created and learned by the Trumpeters in the case of Sally Yates. So when she gave them notice that their was lots of problems with this pal of the President, General Flynn, they simply ignored her pleas. I would call them pleas because of the way Sally Yates testified under oath. She requested a second meeting because she noticed how the Vice President was using the same lies that General Flynn had floated and knew they the White House needed to be told. Sean Spicer’s excuse that they hadn’t gotten the paperwork, the evidence until 8 days later doesn’t hold water. They never vetted the General, who disregarded what President Barack Obama had told Donald Trump. Once heard, the Acting Attorney General should have been listened to, disregarding her now supposed political bias that Spicer was now tarring her with. General Flynn, should have been given desk duty, away from Top Secret information till he was fully vetted. As soon as President Barack Obama spoke to Trump about it he should have been fired, not promoted. It reminds me a lot like when President George Walker Bush’s disregarded President Bill Clinton’s Osama bin Laden Intel and we all know how that turned out. Sadly these Republican leaders think they always know better till they get into job and we discover they don’t have a clue how to run anything. Trump kept saying he knew more than the generals, then now we discover he doesn’t. He told us he knew how to fix healthcare, then he realized how “hard” it was to solve.
A few hours afterwards, the news world exploded with the shock that Donald Trump fired the FBI director James Comey, and his reasoning made the firing a bigger news story than it possibly might have been. Seems he was ecstatic during the campaign when Donald came out and ruined Hillary Clinton’s chances, two weeks before Election Day by spewing his lies about her server and those damned ‘classified’ emails. But than spoiled the fun by letting Hillary Clinton off the hook just a few days later, and now he’s canning Comey because he was evil to Hillary. Me thinks, before this gets played out, Donald’s pick for Attorney General will blocking Hillary up just as a way to deflect his jailers at the front door.
One of the things that cracks me up in all of this is, that in the letter that he sent to James Comey, he told him that he ‘greatly appreciated’ the now former head of the FBI, for “informing” him on “three separate occasions that I am not under investigation” in the Russian investigation. Excuse me, what does that have anything to do with this excuse for his firing, and why would he tell you unless he was in on your con. If he did know, talk about how to blackmail a President. If thats true, you fired the man who has your freedom by your balls. Donald, do you actually think the man with the pink slip still in the mail, would now keep quiet. I say the man with the pink slip thats in the mail, because that was actually the case.
Supposedly, James Comey was making a speech on stage for the FBI, when the announcement went over the wire. So picture the man, supposedly blind sided in front of a room filled with interested parties, and he discovers his canning in full sight of everyone. Wait, to add salt to the wound, James Comey flew to Los Angeles in an FBI private plane, to do several speeches pitching the FBI. Turns out only employees of the FBI can fly in it. That’s right, which means either they will have to go against protocol and allow him to ride along, or he might have to hitch a ride on an airline. Kind of hoping its United, and they have to bump him on the flight home.
Then we discovered that the reason Trump decided to pull the switch was that Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Donald to do it. So Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Investigation, because of his connection with the Trump campaign and his forgetting to mention that he also met with Russian associates of Vladimir Putin. Then Sessions helps to fire the investigator into Trumps Russian investigation, and now, in what shouldn’t be a shocker, he’s signalling the fact that he wants to end the investigation into Russian entanglements in the Trump campaign. Really? Session, Jeff baby, go blow yourself… up!
As a joke I turned on FOX Faux News, or as they brand themselves, FOX News, and FOX Business and at first it seemed they were acting like somebody dies, as the world was calling Donald Trump’s actions today something out of Richard Nixon’s playbook. It was if they realized the end was near for the Mad Kind. Well approximately an hour later I turned back to them and Hannity was losing his shirt. Seems he’s practically foaming at the media for comparing Trump to Nixon, how dare they? Then he went on a long tirade showcasing why James Comey deserved to be canned. How everything he did during the campaign was illegal, I actually had to make sure this was Hannity speaking. I mean I can remember hours upon hours of this Trumpeter proclaiming Comey a God for what he was doing. Using the FBI directors own words as evidence that Hillary deserved a prison cell. Me thinks he see’s his pay checks going the way of James Comey’s, a bitter shade of pink.
So now where are we? The Republicans are in a tizzy, I guess trying to decide if they want to die on the sword. The Democrats are smelling blood and the world is sitting up to discover what happens next. Senator Chuck Schumer has announced tomorrow there’s gonna be a special meeting in the Senate to explain something, I presume its strategy. Plus, to make matters crazier, James Comey who was scheduled to speak in front of Congress before today, will be returning to the Capital in be questioned, this time as a common citizen. I can’t even estimate how many viewers that session for will be seen by, all I know is I’ll be watching with pop corn, wondering if his righteous manner and pompous demeanor will be diminished a bit, now that King Joffrey fired his ass for doing his job, by using the excuse of not doing his job. How funny with Trump whichever way you go, it only matters to him if you go along with his scam. Otherwise you here those Trumpian words… “Your fired!” In this case, the Your Fired, hopefully will be the beginning of the end of Donald’s Presidency.

WE WERE WORRIED ABOUT BANNON BEING THE NAZI, WHEN ONE WAS ALREADY STARING US IN OUR FACES FOR YEARS!
Who needs gas chambers people, when we’ve got Paul Ryan masterminding ways to kill millions upon millions of people!
WE WERE SO WORRIED ABOUT STEVE BANNON’S footprint on the White House, we weren’t paying attention to who the real psychopaths were in the Capital. Believe me I am not trying to make light of what the Donald’s right hand publicity agent has done. But his racist shenanigans aside, nothing, let me repeat that nothing he has done to worsen the social discord in our nation compares to what the House Leader has just gotten past stage one in his quest to make American the place that the love of his life Ayn Rand wrote about. The author wrote a book of fiction, her theories about the world, and fools like this monster, made it into their own personal religion. Now I’m not saying he’s the only monster in our midsts, but he’s the one with the plan. I’ve always disliked the House Leader with a passion, whenever he crawled out of whatever hole he slithered out from, his arrogance and pompous demeanor just didn’t sit right with me. When he was running as Mitt Romney’s running mate, the notion that he would be a heart beat away from the Presidency always made me nervous. When he wriggled his way to House leadership my heart sank while I listened to all the talking heads make him sound like he was gonna be the man that righted the House. Righted indeed, more like right off of a cliff. Every time he came out with a new pitch, it always felt like we were playing Russian Roulette with our nation’s financial health. But when you take a step back and look at his latest legislative offering I’ve realized my gut instinct about him was being nice, this man has to be pure evil incarnate. How else can you explain what his legislation sets out to do?
His mission is to hurt those who live within the borders of our 50 states. He doesn’t care if you’re straight or gay, male or female or even a transsexual. If you’re mentally challenged or your physically handicapped. The poor, the young, the old, have I left anyone out? Simply put, pretty much any one who is breathing. If you ain’t got the funds, you can seriously drop dead for all he cares. I led my last commentary with “death panels” in the head line, and no, I wasn’t trying to make light of the wording or its historical connotations. I understand by mentioning ‘death camps’ or Nazi’s or their ringleader Adolf Hitler, it usually a showcase that the person who is spouting off the correlation is being obnoxious. Well seems I’ve turned into one of those types, maybe in this case thats a good thing. If enough Democrats had become as fanatical about their conspiracy theories like the Republicans out there are, maybe Hillary would’ve be in the White House and Donald would just be some distant memory. But if enough turn into one’s now, when it comes to what the Trumpeters are trying to do, in how they stole the Presidency, perhaps by the next election my beliefs will finally become the consensus out there and Donald and his deplorables will be a thing of the past.There is no way of knowing how many people will be hurt if somehow this theft of a life line for millions gets enacted, but the numbers I’ve seen suggested by some are simply horrifying to even contemplate. There is no way of envisioning how many people will lose their homes or how many hospitals will close for financial reasons. Which of course brings to mind how this legislation could implode our economy if the experts are right. What’s not ever mentioned is what the healthcare world was like before Obamacare. All the things that The Affordable Health Care Act was designed to fix before it was enacted. Which amazing it was accomplishing, even with an entire political party trying to do everything in their power to stop it in its tracks. What really makes these monsters the ghouls that they are, they didn’t even have the humanity to wait to actually learn the ramifications of Ryan’s master plan before voting yes on it. Most we’ve discovered didn’t even read it, and those are the fools who argue what’s actually in the bill. They are throwing out the same lies Donald Trump and Paul Ryan are, perfect example is of course ‘preexisting conditions’. As with everything with the Trumpeters, just believe what I say, everyone else is lying and simply disregard what we say or tweet or now even legislate. Screw what’s actually on the printed page, just believe us till we pull the rug from out of 30 million or more Americans.
Though out his legislative career the Wisconsin’s First District congressman and speaker of the House has always tried to come off as a man of the people who knows best, while delivering one piece of legislation after the other that seriously does its best to make things worse for people. I can’t remember one offering that when examined by the experts ever made financial sense. Simply put somehow his numbers never add up, and luckily until now we had either a Democratic majority in the Congress and of course, President Barack Obama to stop him before. This heinous piece of sewage that the House just voted ‘yes’ on, seriously needs to be ripped to shreds and forced down the smug faced steroid freaks throat till he suffocates on his own vomit. Believe it or not, I’m trying to be nice here. I’m trying not to write something that will have the authorities banging on my door. I mean if someone can get convicted for laughing at Jeff Sessions, my calling the House leader a piece of excrement whose trying to make Adolf Hitler seem like a choir boy, could seriously put me in their cross hairs. But if my insulting the putz running the House brings me into the cross hairs of an unhinged would be tyrant, so be it. How else am I supposed to feel about this, how else am I suppose to react? We have a political leader, third in line to the Presidency, who laughs in our faces as he just helped start the process in signing the death sentences of millions and millions of Americans. What should we throw him a party? Should we set him up to be the next President?
I understand we are living in backward times, our President comes out in front of Church leaders pitching ‘religious freedom’, this just weeks after his previous Executive Actions against Muslims, were shut down by the judicial system because they were racist. The hypocrisy was so thick in Trump’s words one could imagine the oranged faced would be tyrant suffocating on the horse manure he was now trying to pitch. It must be such a struggle having to try to enhance ones Presidency, when you realize you are so out of your league. Trying so desperately to make anything good, your own accomplishment. Wanting so much to be taken seriously as a world leader, but looking more and more like a deranged escapee from an asylum whose somehow found a way to run it. The question is, how long will those not in the know take to realize Donald and his Trumpeters have slipped out of their straight jackets? When will their innocent victims, transform into a blood thirsty mob that turns into a tidal wave that overwhelms the monsters and returns our nation into the democracy that America was supposed to be? Or will we all just roll over and allow the monsters at the gates free reign and say good bye to the greatest nation in the history of our world.
I understand about seeing the light, finding Jesus and all of that stuff, but we are talking about a fool who once was penalized for being a racist by not renting to people of ‘color’ or as they used to be called ‘colored’, or as they marked the applications with a bit ‘C’. Some have mentioned this, reminding all of us that the Mad King has many faults. Its amazing how many deplorable things can be accomplished without having to get it passed through legislation. Now I get why Donald Trump complained about the use of Executive Actions so much during his barn storming days in the build up to deciding to seek the highest office in the land. Sadly we’ve learned with the Mad King, and what I’ve been harping on for over a year now, what he complains about is exactly what he does. Like his weekly trips to the golf course after complaining President Barack Obama went on too many when he was in the same position.
Watching the sheep in the House run and hide when asked if they had read the bill Donald Trump was putting his name on was quite striking and most of them look like the rats they are as they scurried away into their holes. Not having learned their talking points yet. Listening to the Democratic political leaders, they all think this political move, by going along with Donald’s decree, the Republicans had all just ran straight into a trap stuffed with a big fat slab of orange cheese. What a perfect representation of how they represented their constituents, like rats in cage. Hopefully all the so-called experts are correct and this latest proposal by Paul Ryan will die in the Senate, or rewritten enough by their leaders that the eventual bill will either be dropped by the House when then get the reconfigured version back or the bill won’t kill enough people for them to ever agree on anything. Either way, this dead on arrival legislation hopefully will help throw enough of the monsters out in our next election, that the Democrats will once again be back in the majority. You what that means if that happens, a real Russian investigation into exactly what occurred during the last campaign, and yes Donald Trump could be impeached. Escorted and shackled along with all the other Russian traitors in our midsts.
Of course, if this death document gets approved by The Senate and Donald signs it into law, who knows how our citizens will react. Wouldn’t it be ironic that once they kill our health care off, and the riots begin, that after lying for years that one democrat after the other would take away their guns, Donald Trump signs off on removing the precious weapons of all this 2nd Amendment fans. Talk about anarchy. After all, who do you think is gonna hurt most with Trump’s draconian maneuvers. All I can say, hey killers, yeah I’m talking to all of the Trumpeters out there, all you Republican liars who lied straight to your constituents faces that you would vote against the bill, you better higher better security. Those like Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) who actually said “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care.” Hm, I beg to differ, and I resume there are millions out there who agree with me.
I’m just saying I’d think about some protection if I was you. Look at how mad people got when mean old Obama ‘forced’ all of us, dragging and screaming into Obamacare in the middle of the night, and that was giving them health care maybe for the first time in their lives. You sirs, you monstrous trolls are doing the opposite, and doing it gleefully practically drooling at the notion that all these deadbeats would simply go away and die on their own dimes. Its a funny thing, but people ain’t happy when things are taken away from them, especially when those things turn out to be their loved ones. That’s pretty much what it feels like this ‘heath’ care bill does, it gives people the choice of paying for healthcare, and if you can’t afford it, you’re on your own. So in other words not only are the Trumpeters racists, homophobic anti-woman’s equalitists, they really hate poor people. They’ve lied to get where they are by telling people President Barack Obama was the devil by forcing them to have healthcare. How heartless could he be to give millions of Americans the chance to better their lives. The Republicans cried that Obamacare, had death panels, they lied and argued that Obama took their doctors away, his biggest sin, when in reality those doctors refused to give their patients the health care they deserved. Some how making a minimum on what you received as a patient was a bad thing. These same liars have now taken over our nation, and the healthcare that so many of them finally received, that saved thousands if not millions of lives in the short time it was implemented are actually offering a program that is worse then the health care system we had in the first place.
Of course why am I even worried, the way things are going if Paul Ryan gets his wish, by the time this legislation gets enacted our world will probably be in cinders, engulfed in radiation from the fall out of the multiple wars the Mad King caused. So how sad will that be, when those of us left alive can’t afford the health care that we were lucky enough to be allowed to have.

DEATH PANELS IT IS, AS REPUBLICANS CELEBRATE KILLING OFF OBAMACARE IN THE HOUSE… IT JUST GOT REAL!
This in a week when Hillary Clinton comes out and proves once again why she should be in power, and James Comey proves once and for all that he should be in a prison cell!
CONGRATULATIONS, TRUMPETERS AND REPUBLICANS, and the people who voted for Donald Trump, and Paul Ryan and his minions, and everyone who rather give a tax break to millionaires at the expense of hurting millions upon millions of people. Kudos for finally getting something accomplished Mr. President, but what have you really accomplished but hurting Americans. You promised many things on the stomp Mr. Trump and it’s turning out that every one of your promises were a bold faced lie!How sad, it seems Mitch McConnell finally got his wish, at least they actually put forth for health care legislation in the House of Representatives. People thats a first. Sadly, this bill should rot on the vine.
For eight years President Obama suggested repeatedly to the Republicans who hated Obamacare to come up with a better plan, or a way to fix the legislation so everyone would be happy. He practically pleaded with the Republicans, but instead of coming up with one, all we got were years of attempts to kill the law, without offering any of their own but talking points. All the while doing everything in their legislative power to weaken it from the cities, to the states to the federal government. Depending on which side speaks about it, its either in a death spiral or working as well as it possibly could be, especially with the party whose now in power whose been trying to kill it since even before it was enacted. One of the main reasons why the Republicans fought so hard against Obamacare is the man whose name its associated with. This hatred that these Republicans and the Trumpeters have for our nation’s first African-American president, the jealousy they had that a Democrat had been the one to actually get a health care law accomplished when they never couldn’t, was more important than hurting people. With Republicans, it’s never about the people, it’s about themselves and of course whomever they are beholden of.
Sadly this is nothing new, but they’ve never been able to do this on such a grand scale before. This deep seated anger towards President Barack Obama which is the only reason why I think these Republicans wanted to get rid of Obamacare in the first place. That is of course aided a lot by the elephant in the room… racism! They needed to be the ones who got praised for coming up with saving the world not the Democrats, not a black man. I’m sorry, a man of color, an African-American and worse a person whose biracial, such a sin, was the one that fixed the healthcare system, not on their watch. But what else could it have been with these Republicans? They’ve done every single thing in their power to ruin what president Barack Obama signed into law. I must admit, their strategy was quite good, keep trying to make it worse, then come out and complain about it falling apart and make people believe your lies. Oh my God!, its imploding on itself, but don’t look behind the curtain to discover its we ourselves who are behind what’s wrong with Obamacare itself. I’m sorry, its been seven years, they could have helped fix the problems, instead of just trying to kill the law. So instead of the Democrats continuously fixing whatever issues that have turned up as the legislation is being enacted, for the most part they’ve had to try to hold off the Republicans attempts to kill the bill. So what’s wrong with Obamacare is now on them. Well now they’ve got the power, and as promised they have started repealing and replacing The Affordable Health Care Act, at least they’ve actually gotten stage one started. Sadly, as is their lot, they’ve done it in such a way you wonder if we live in a Democracy or a Russian Dictatorship.
They created of Bill that takes everything good out of Obamacare and actually makes the rest of it worse. Every medical Association, all the leading experts on healthcare, all the money crunchers have said this is a bad bill, but nothing swayed their mission to kill the Obamacare. What’s worse this bill really isn’t a health care bill, it’s really a huge tax break for the wealthy and a dagger into the hearts of anyone with one. Listening to Nancy Pelosi plead her case against Trumpcare today on the House floor was inspiring, as she exposed the lies in the Trumpeters plan. Showcasing why this draconian legislation is really just a big tax break for rich folk, and then I watched as Paul Ryan gleefully lied his face off about how great this program was going to be, talk about the contrast. Well Mr. Ryan when your plan is revealed for all the world to see, as citizens discover how you and your friends fleeced on nation, you better watch out, because citizens ain’t going to be happy! Me thinks you better firm up your security. Simply put, if this scheme gets enacted as currently written thanks to Paul Ryan, Donald Trump’s biggest con ever, besides winning the Presidency, will cost Americans millions of dollars, give a tax break to the wealthiest people in America, including our President, gutted peoples healthcare and probably put a death sentence on more people than Adolf Hitler did in his prime. Yes, I used the Nazi comparison. I mean Adolf only killed 6 million people, I wonder how many more American will die because of this evil legislation, I’m thinking possibly a whole lot more. Whats worse, did you see there faces when the won the vote today, ghouls! They did it smiling as their actions would in fact hurt millions of human beings. When did this monsters lose their souls? I can’t wait to see the people in the street rioting when they realize what the Republicans have just pulled off. Wait till the people see what they had, what they lost, and the shit the Republicans allowed them to keep. If we thought the people were angry at the last town hall meetings, my friends, this is gonna get scary.
Please tell me, how can a party be so stupid? I don’t know if they planned this in advance but can we say what was the Republican party thinking, having this vote right before having an 11 day congressional break? But lets make the matters worse. Before an announced visit to the White House to celebrate they won finally, they had beers brought to the House to toast their victory, classy huh? Millions cut off of heath care and they are celebrating, than, the Republicans headed to the White House in a bus to congratulate their leader’s tremendous victory. Excuse me let me repeat that, they headed to the White House in a bus. A bus! I guess they don’t remember ‘the Billy Bush bus incident’ with the president? Hint, something about grabbing a woman’s genitals was discussed, and now all the victorious Republican congressman were riding in one to greet and meet the president and what, he’d serve them a nice piece of chocolate cake from one of Trump’s restaurants and then send the citizens the bill? Are they really just simply rubbing it in all our faces? I mean talk about desperation moves by Donald Trump, the bill hasn’t passed anything yet. It hasn’t reached the Senate floor yet, it hasn’t been scored to discover what this monstrosity will actually eventually cost. Why are you having a victory dance when you haven’t won anything yet? Maybe Vladimir Putin discussed this with him on the phone the other day in their top secret phone conversation. I mean I know, it’s very confusing Donald, I realize how you need a victory. Anything to showcase that you’re not the worst screw up to ever sit in that powerful chair inside the Oval office. I also know that this is the first time they’ve actually had a chance to vote for repeal and replace and win one. But should they congratulate themselves so obnoxiously, since now they get to go home and face the wraith of all their constituents. Well if karma is a bitch, these monsters, who call themselves politicians deserve an earful they will be struck deaf by. Not that I ever believed a single thing he said, and I don’t want to sound bitter about this, but this legislation does exactly the opposite of what king Joffrey promised on the stomp. Its not a better cheaper alternative to Obamacare, its a death bill to millions. Remember ‘Death Panels’? Well seems as usual with these liars, their plan is the one that actually decides who lives and who dies! Why must the Republicans always wind up doing the things they argue others have been doing? Maddeningly as the legislation was being voted in all we got from the Republicans lying that the new plan would cover preexisting conditions knowing full well it didn’t. As usual, with these liars, what written by their own hands, isn’t what they preach to us as they lie straight to our faces. Today Chris Hayes was talking to one of the Republicans Congressman, who kept arguing what the bill did wasn’t what the bill did and no matter how many ways Chris tried to get the fool to admit it he wouldn’t. Also maddening, was according to the talking heads this bill is approximately only 200 or so pages long, so in theory one would think all of them would read it before voting for it, but it was reported that they hadn’t had the time. One congressmen actually said that his assistants read it, maddening. Then they argue whats in it, when they haven’t a clue. All they have are Paul Ryan’s talking points and the demands of King Joffrey. I swear they all sound like Trump now, they all try to come off as experts on things, like Donald wth his grasp of the legal profession. Just because you want it so, doesn’t make it legal. It explains Trumps many confrontations with the law and his many settlements.
He promised that he wasn’t going to cut Medicare, he is! He wasn’t going to get rid of pre-existing conditions he is! I would say he’s lying about that, but honestly me thinks he himself hasn’t read the bill himself. No matter what they say and they’re saying it loudly, they’re taking away healthcare from millions of American citizens! Also maddening, one of the reason they passed it off to the Senate as is, is because they know the Senate will fix the problems with it. They just needed to get it to the next phase otherwise they would be stuck with Obamacare forever, and we couldn’t have that could we. So they passed a version of a health care plan and the Senate has to make it work. Luckily for us, the Republicans in the Senate seem to at least on the surface live in our world, but I say that hesitantly. As we’ve learned in the past even when they say they’re against something before a vote sadly when its time to cast theirs, they vote their party way. Guess we’ll see soon enough won’t we.Before todays vote occurred I was all set to write about Hillary Clinton’s and James Comey’s return to the spotlight, but as usual Donald Trump figured out a way to get the talking heads and your’s truly to have to stop what we’re doing and deal with the man’s foul stench instead. That said, excluding the House's big vote today Hillary and James coming out party’s were pretty big news events.
Hillary Clinton again showcased why the ‘winner’ in the most recent Presidential race shouldn’t have been Donald Trump. And James Comey, proved once and for all, what a treasonous fool he is. James Comey’s felt nauseous, the poor baby, about his Hillary decision, well sir, our nation’s been sick to our stomach ever since you decided to ruin her big victory celebration. But before I talk about that I have to mention one other thing. In an interview on ‘Face the Nation’, with CBS News reporter John Dickerson, the delusional mad king, put his foot into his mouth by doubling down on his wiretapping charges about the previous tenant of the Oval Office, “You saw what happened with surveillance,” yup, not something his handlers probably hoped he’s bring up… again. But as usual, with the not ready for prime time President, this statement came completely out of left field. Donald Trump was asked to elaborate on what he’s learned from former President Barack Obama, and after a nice opening response, the orange faced wannabe tyrant decided to bring back his baseless accusation. Instead of letting it go, John Dickerson kept asking him what he meant by his statement. But the man who was caught in his own lie again, as usual reverted to being a child. Trump told the reporter the interview was over, moped back to his high chair and was left looking like the loser that he seems to be. Seeing him sitting there as the camera still rolled was a striking image. I’ve never seen a less happy President in my life. Not Nixon, not George Walker, not even Bill Clinton during the impeachment hearings. I mean it was a little odd on Inauguration Day to see him acting scared, but I took that as shock. I bet the now President wasn’t expecting to actually win this gamble, and ever since election day he’s showcased his unpreparedness for the job proving my impression correct. Thats why he needed to have the frat party today on Capital Hill. He needed it, like a drug user needed a fix. The great negotiator needed a victory, more than million needed health care.
It is pretty amazing or is that sad, or better yet scary that whenever Donald discusses anything he sounds like an 10-year-old kid who skipped the class, and is now winging his answer. Am I wrong? I mention this because when I was in college I took a course on Latin American fiction, just because I needed the credits and the material sounded like it could be fun. Well within minutes of my first class with Linda Huntington, I was hooked. In fact her teaching was so great, that I took it for three years, thats six different courses, even when I didn’t need the credits. But it wasn’t till my last paper with her that I ever received anything higher than a ‘B’. You see the last paper occurred right before we graduated. I hadn’t slept it felt like in weeks, and I really didn’t need the credits or the grade, so for once I skipped reading the material. I sat in the class and learned everything I needed listening to my instructor and the discussion in the class. I went home, wrote my paper, handed it in and was shocked to discover a week later that she had given me an ‘A+’ on my paper. The grade stunned me, considering I hadn’t read the book, and I had basically winged it, so what gives? Well as was her lot, she also wrote a brief paragraph or two describing her reasoning for her grade. I’m paraphrasing, but what she wrote was, ‘You finally learned how to B.S., it took you long enough. Congratulations!’ Sadly, not sure where the historic document is, but receiving it is something I will never forget. Seems I had learned something from my teacher even when I skipped doing the assignment, I had discovered how to B.S., in other words I had learned how to lie and make shit up. Sadly it appears Donald never learned that lesson because when he’s BS’ing what he utters and tweets would never be worthy of even a ‘D-’ in middle school. Ironically, if you think about it, our president has to learn how to lie better, how insane is that, considering all he ever does is lie. You just can’t make shit up, excuse me, make gibberish up and expect everyone to believe every thing you say, even when you’re the President. But Donald keep trying maybe one day you’ll fool us all or at least learn how to lie better.
Before Trump sent John Dickerson away he continued his nonsense by adding, “I think our side’s been proven very strongly and everybody’s talking about it and frankly, it should be discussed.” What the heck does that mean Mr. Trump? What kind of word salad were you trying to say? Actually my question is do you have any clue what you were trying to say? I guess he does think we are all as imbecilic as he is. I’m at the point now, where I think he doesn’t read anything anymore, but his handlers sit him down and describe things till he grasps his interpretation of things and then wings it. I’m pretty sure our President hasn’t actually read the Paul Ryan plan or the fixes in it that got those on the right to originally say no. The worst part is when he comes out with stuff like his ‘wiretapping’ allegation, no matter how asinine it is, he will never take it back. Instead he will react like he did on ‘Face the nation’.
One would think that would be enough to discuss, but I’ve got one more thing to throw into the mix. Before the House’s big vote today, the only thing good that Trump could actually crow actually occurred. The Congress had actually approved a budget. Not an easy thing, as President Barack Obama discovered throughout his tenure. Remember that little thing called the Government shutdown that the Republicans forced trying to kill off Obamacare? Remember the Republican were eventually the loser in their gambit and surely showcased what monsters they were then. The people who always whined about budgets, really blew a hole in the budget by being big babies. One would think they would have learned than, but as we all have learned, schooling ain’t big with these murderers. Yup I called them murders, I’m already seeing blood on their hands. That said, everyone won this time in their negotiations, accept the President ironically. Because what he really wanted was funding for the wall, and the Democrats were not gonna be budging on it. So instead of Trump actually coming out and announcing something good, that the powers that be in Congress had come up with a plan to keep the nation going till September, by agreeing to a budget package. Donald decided to ruffle a few feathers, by warning the world of a “good” government shutdown, if in September he doesn’t get the funding for the wall he so desires. Of course it was simply one of Donald’s tweets, so maybe we shouldn’t worry about this threat, considering he got the Health care vote he wanted today. Victory was his for once, perhaps that warning can now be just relegated to the trash heap. Maybe this tweet was simply his way to shut all of us up about his conversation with John Dickerson. Or simply his trying to change the subject after his historic stupidity when it comes to why the Civil War happened in the first place. Either way, this time his deflection was to warn everyone, that he wasn’t happy. What’s insane about this latest tirade on twitter was this happened a day after he crowed about what a great budget package the congress had come up with. So instead of pushing that, Donald warned that a Government shutdown would maybe be a ‘good’ thing. Unbelievable, a sitting President, using the bully tweetfest as a way to make people nervous. Donald also might have tweeted that warning because former Secretary of State and should be President, Hillary Clinton was gonna be speaking and he wanted something to knock her off the front pages and the airwaves. Sadly her showcasing why I wish we could have a re-do with the vote, has now gonna be replaced with Trump’s shocking Congressional victory.
So Hillary came out and again showcased how brilliant she is. Sadly afterwards much of the conversation by the talking heads, was how Hillary still hadn’t gotten over her loss. Which of note she only discussed because she was asked about it. Obviously she was hurt by it, who wouldn’t be, but the little she said about her so-called defeat seemed logical, and probable. There also might have been another reason for his tweet. James Comey was scheduled to answer questions once more in Congress, and I presume Putin’s puppet was nervous something might slip out that could end his Presidency. Sadly that did not happen, but Comey proved once more to be in the pocket of the Trumpeters. Every thing he said sounded rehearsed, and whats worse, nothing he said explained why he had hid the Trump campaigns collusion with Russia and why he insisted he had to tell the world about Hillary’s issues. James Comey claimed he might have gotten nauseous because he was destroying the campaign of what should have been the first woman President of these United States. Well sir, I hope that nauseousness of yours turns into a full blown life threatening stomach churning sickness and your healthcare doesn’t cover whatever you’ve contacted.
Lastly, good for CNN for saying no to airing Trump’s publicity commercial. Unbelievably the man has already announced he’s running for re-election which means he can collect donations to his campaign. Well his campaign has issued its first campaign commercial and talk about a crock of shit. The most hysterical part was that the fools who put the video together actually insult real news with Trump’s “Fake News” tag line. I’m sorry sir you call CNN and the liberal media fake news and then you want to promote the bull shit of what you accomplished in your first hundred days on their stations, no thank you! Simply could you get more obnoxious? Well its only 100 days or so in, I’m pretty sure his obnoxiousness is only gonna get worse and worse till somehow we survive the shit storm known as Donald J. Trump.
