So Christmas came early for the Democrats as Alabama rejected Roy Moore and the Trump effect, so why does Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan always turn out to be Scrooges?

SO IT TURNS OUT, DONALD IS GETTING HIS TAX WINDFALL AFTER ALL, and the deficit hawk hypocritical Republicans can now blow up the deficit to their hearts content. Apparently all these patriotic Americans, who screamed to the heavens for years that we needed to cut the debt otherwise all Hell would break lose, now are happy to destroy everything to get their backers off their backs. Point blank, our elected officials it appears were blackmailed by their investors to either give them what wanted, the tax breaks, or lose their pocketbooks and eventually their jobs. If you look at the poll numbers, they’ve already lost their constituents, they can’t afford to lose the people who keep getting them into office, their owners. And just like with the Trump White House, way too many of these political leaders pocketbooks speak with a heavy Russian accent. I mean come on, did you hear Roy Moore speak Russian, I actually got chills, and not in the good way. 

What blows my mind in all this is how do these Senators and Congressmen get so damned rich while working in political office? I seem to recall how many of them complained that their pay wasn’t big enough to afford to live in two places, their home states and in Washington D.C., why isn’t that investigated? How is it okay, that these writers of the tax bill seemingly will be the only Americans, besides the corporate bigwigs of course, that makes out like bandits from this weeks nightmare legislation? Listening to the experts on air, all we hear all day and all night, without exception is that these Republicans in the majority just wrote themselves a big fat pay day. It goes without saying that the experts I’m talking about aren’t the ones on Fox faux news, who only want to spew conspiracies and ignore reality and facts. 

The new poster child for Republican hypocrisy is also the perfect example of why no one should ever believe a thing that any of the Republicans say. Bob Corker, the United States Senator from Tennessee, who until recently was the loudest Republican voice argued that he would be saying no to the tax bill because of the debt it would create. That he would never say yes to it unless there were changes in the legislation to fix his issues with it. How funny, amazingly the debt issue wasn’t fixed, but they did add an amendment at the last minute into the tax legislation, which supposedly will earn the Senator millions. Not surprisingly, but definitely infuriating, once that amendment was in, his vote changed from nay to yes. And a hash tag was born, #CorkerKickback. As for the debt problem, magically it all appears to be forgotten. Guess we’re back to magical thinking and believing in Santa Claus. Oh, I should mention, like all hypocrites, Bob Corker, has come out and is very upset that people now think of him as a monstrous soulless sell-out. How dare any us think his vote was paid off?  Senator could you be any more pathetic, laughable or sad? 

Speaking of taxes, and the con of the century, guess who will make a butt load of money when Donald J. Trump signs his John Hancock on his first major piece of legislation in his almost year long administration? That’s right you guessed it, Donald Trump and the Trump family singers. The Trumps supposedly will earn millions initially, and with the Estate tax changes, possibly over a billion, a billion and a half. I wrote supposedly because how would anyone know? Since nobody is allowed to look over the man’s tax records.

Someone should really contact the Guinness Book of World Records, because it seems Donald is still under audit. Unbelievably but true, the orange faced liar-in-chief, according to his people is still being audited. Question, when did this audit begin if it actually is occurring at all?  Remember, there is no way of knowing if the person is actually being audited, so basically we have to “believe him” but as Hillary said brilliantly during the debates, “No Donald, I don’t believe you.” Also of note, when someone is under audit, there is nothing illegal about releasing his tax returns, or the returns of previous years not under audit. Remember all that talk about Donald’s tax returns during the campaign? How we needed to see them before he was allowed to change our tax code? Remember how people argued that he shouldn’t be allowed to even be a nominee of the Republican party, or better the Presidency without releasing his taxes? All that big talk about what was right, was forgotten in the campaign almost as fast as the Access Hollywood Bus revelation turned out to be as Donald Trump Junior would call it a nothing burger.

Seems no one else is talking about his taxes now. All those complainers before election day have gone silent. Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, remember coming out on more than a few occasions, as your face turned red with anger, how this could never happen, not in America. That they if necessary would do something to prevent Trump from orchestrating a tax bill when the Congress or the American people didn’t have a clue how much the President would benefit from it. Remember the Emoluments Clause, that Donald wouldn’t be allowed to make money off of the job as President? Well? Anything? Crickets… 

Now the man has signed into law the biggest changes into our tax system in thirty years, and his taxes are simply an after-thought. We’re too busy screaming about all the other crap he’s thrown into the wind that his monumental heist isn’t even being discussed. No its more important that we push conspiracies against Robert Mueller, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, than talk about Donald’s con of the century.

On one hand every talking head has come out to let us know that this tax legislation is one big con game. The rich will get richer, the middle class will get poorer, and the poor will just disappear from view. That is till society’s dead weight, all die off and poverty is gone from America for good. Praise the lord and pass the ammunition. On the other hand, we get a fairy tale version from Trump’s propaganda wing Fox news that makes the Republican trickle-down day dream sound like heaven on Earth. That disregards what actually is in the law that apparently most if not all of the Republicans who said ‘yes’ to it, haven’t even read it. Just imagine, they didn’t read a bill that will effect every single American for decades to come. Well at least they have another excuse if or when our nation implodes financially. Why bother reading the small print, what could go wrong? I mean what could the lobbyist sneak in at the last minute, Right?

So if Trump’s band of treasonous monsters don’t all wind up on death row, or at least in a prison cell, about the time the results start becoming real with this tax legislation, the electorate will get to decide if the results so far, are reasons to drop kick the lot of them outta power. Of course the more pressing matter would be pitched, the Impeachment proceedings of Donald J. Trump on account of the Russian investigation. One would think, by next election day kicking them out, might be the best campaign pitch by a Democrat ever used. Hopefully the democrats this time won’t play nice and kick the monsters down when they most deserve it.

Like everything else they do the Trumpeters always screw something up. Sometimes like with Trump’s tax package, it happens even before the ink is dry, in this case, even before he signs his name on it. Wednesday evening, Rachel Maddow had an amazing take down on whats wrong with the implementation of the tax bill on her show. I must note, today, I read otherwise, so who knows what the whole story is, but according to new reports today, the changes to the tax code actually go into effect in 2019, not on January 2018 as was discussed during an interview on her show. Perhaps her story made them fix the provisions before Donald gave himself the biggest Christmas bonus check ever. I mean why not, it was reported that they were rewriting it within hours of the vote, why shouldn’t they make a fix that actually makes sense.

But if true, according to her report, one of the things no one was discussing during the run up to this weeks voting, or seemingly at all, I mean I haven’t heard one word about it, was when the legislation would go into effect. If Rachel’s report was correct, supposedly on January 1st, 2018, everything hits the fan. It all becomes real. One big problem, nothing has been set up for the big day. So the instant payoff we keep hearing about, how the heck does that happen if the W2 or whatever new forms they’ll come up with haven’t even been designed yet or the figures on it finalized? That’s why Obamacare and every other major legislation always are given sometimes years to get fully implemented. They always build a time frame in, a cushion if your will, so the world will be ready for the changes that everyone needs to learn how to live with.  And we are talking about something that effects every one of us that pays taxes, again what could go wrong?

Simply put, its insane. Need I remind you on what when wrong with the roll out of Obamacare and it’s website. This probably more than anything helped give the Republicans the perfect attack line on one of President Barack Obama’s signature achievements. Well what will happen when our pay stubs are all screwed up or our pay checks are held back till the system is fixed. What happens when millions are kept in the dark while they wait having their electricity turned off and have to live like the millions currently suffering in Puerto Rico? What happens when those millions on the mainland, you know your followers can’t feed their families. I give we would be living in another “Let them eat cake” moment, and hm, I wonder how that turned out? 

I’m sorry, if I sound negative but I have my doubts anything he does is for the good of the nation. Please, tell me I’m wrong, please tell me one thing that Donald has done while in office that hasn’t been messed up in one way or the other. As a way to trumpet Donald’s pitch was working and that the people were gonna actually feel flush with green like the rich folk living the life of Reilly. Magically even before anything was signed into law, several large corporations including Comcast have announced that they’re giving out hundreds if not thousands of bonus checks and raising salaries, showcasing how fast the trickle-down will wash us all with sweet cash in our pockets. Hm, I’m sorry this isn’t an effect of the tax legislation, this is just a few ass kissers trying to look good for the teacher. This was certainly something Donald wanted to spread like sunshine on a dreary winter day.

I wouldn’t be surprised if these bonuses were planned and the contracts already signed when Obama was President, but Donald’s people talked the CEO’s into making it a Trump benefit. Can’t wait to see how they react to the facts, if or when most likely, the reality of the business deals come back to bite these liars in their asses. Seems to me thats Donald’s modus operandi whenever he touts his administrations successes with corporate America. He pounds his chest like a gorilla about job growth or factories moving back to our shores, and its always smoke and mirrors, and its always somebody elses doing. Well lets see how far this publicity stunt spreads and how many people really get anything from Trump’s pie in the sky tax con. 

Simply, how many people will actually get jobs when everything shakes out or how many will in reality be worse off, jobless, and living in the streets. And how many of those positions gained or kept will be higher paying? Or will most of these new jobs, simply be the ones that all the illegals can’t do anymore because they’ve all been rounded up and deported. Dragged down to what I already can see occurring in the near future. You guessed it, our new deportation center in Puerto Rico. I mean what better use of the island now that Trump’s government is letting it die as quickly as possible. Instead of trying to fix the problem, he’s causing the largest mass exodus by American citizens in possibly our nations history. On the bright side, Ivanka now has a ton of new employees she can hire to fill her new factories they’ll build in Puerto Rico to create her knock-off products. Why not simply bulldoze the whole place and start fresh, build those Trump warehouses. Let’s ‘Make The Trumps Even Richer’ be the official tag line of the Trump Administration, not the ‘Make America Great’ lie of the century talking point they keep trying to sell.

For some reason I think its gonna turn out like most of Trump’s publicity stunts, when the reality of the rewards turn out to be peanuts on the dollar. Like when he touts a major corporation is gonna add tons of jobs and actually the deals for those jobs were done a few years earlier during the Obama Administration. So in reality Donald had nothing to do with it, but man ain’t it great publicity to pitch. God willing this con game turns out to actually work, and Trump was right and most of us were wrong, boy will I be happy to have been so wrong. Really, I know I preach to high heaven that the man’s a nightmare, even worse than Adolph, but please let me be wrong on this one. Because if I am right, man is it ever going to get bad and sooner than any of us could ever fear. What happens when it all turns out to be as big a crock as most people think? How do we pay for all that infrastructure that Donald promised would come next? Which is needed according to his experts for his tax plan to actually work. What happens to Social Security and Medicare if it succeeds and worse if or when it fails? Paul Ryan is practically drooling over the thought of hurting millions upon millions of people. Maybe we should rename him Josef Mengele, the grin on his face when he gaveled the victory in the House was vomit inducing.  

Someone or something needs to give Josef, I mean the Paul Ryan a swift kick in the ass. You see after the House voted ‘yes’ and tossed it over to the Senate for their own middle of the night vote, Paul Ryan actually said “nobody knows” if the sweeping tax cuts Congress are enacting will produce enough economic growth to fend off soaring federal deficits. Excuse me, then why are we gambling our futures on it? I can’t for the life of me remember any other Republican saying anything like “nobody knows” about this, till Paul made a hypocrite of himself. All we ever got were made up talking points of how great things will be. Of course with no actual figures to prove their hypostasis, we all just had to on faith. I mean with a track record that the Republicans have, sure, why shouldn’t I believe every word they say? Anytime any financial expert was on, listening to the Trumpeters wriggle around reality was really rather painful. Whenever there was a debate between both sides, not once did you come out of it believing the Trumpeters side. Not once. 

So if the tax cuts fail or even if they don’t and the gamble works, the republicans next game is to destroy our social safety net. After all, look at that huge deficit caused by the shortfall. That was to be expected wasn’t it? Oops did we not remember to tell you that? Anytime you implement a new policy, things are bond to be bumpy at first. Of course this shortfall, this ever growing debt that might swallow our nation whole, was never discussed when they were announcing the tax scam. Just like they did before with the Post Office and Social Security, borrowing funds to pay for other things, and then oops blaming the system thats breaking down, that they helped to destroy.  

Maddeningly Donald’s prayers were answered to a great degree by Mitch McConnell. Seem’s the Majority Leader of the Senate as usual used his now patented manner of going against precedent and won yet another round. This time, Mitch McConnell did it by not swearing in the recently victorious Doug Jones, in the Alabama Senator race. Not that it turned out to be needed, but Instead of giving him his rightful vote in Trump’s tax con, Mitch decided to push back the swearing in ceremony till after the new year. Which of course will be much too late to vote for or against this latest Republican monstrosity. I should mention that the Republicans are actually trying to play games with the Alabama election, apparently one of Moore’s supporters who helped bring people to the voting centers said something that the right says show that the Doug Jones camp cheated and Moore actually won. So who knows, in a few months Moore might still get in.   

Mitch played the same game with his filibuster against President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court appointee, and eventually won when Trump picked the newest member of the court once he became President. At the same time he was stopping Merrick Garland from being voted into the Supreme Court, he also was somehow forcing President Barack Obama from letting the American people learn the complete facts on Russia playing games with our democracy during the campaign. Seems if he had, Hillary’s accusation against Trump during the debates would have been believed as real and not just a campaign pitch. And our current political upheaval might just be the stuff of nightmares as opposed to our current reality.

Ray Moore’s defeat in Alabama is being looked at as a beginning of the end of Republican majority rule in the House and maybe even the Senate. That with those victories in less than a year, believe it or not, the people could vote in a new Democratic majority. They could actually vote out all the monsters and restore America to the greatness that President Barack Obama was taking us towards. Lets hope this week’s Republican declared tax victory, adds fuel to the fire that’s been lit under the rumps of the democrats in our nation. 

Almost a year in, and I still walk around dumbstruck that Trump is our sworn in leader and Hillary  is still more often attacked for not disappearing or worse for actually breathing. Everyday something new occurs that makes me ponder if this is all one of those bad dreams you can’t wake up from. But even if that happy notion was true, the way things have been going lately, when you finally think you’re awake at the end, sadly in our story line, the boogie man kills you dead just as the credits role or who get to relive the nightmare over and over again. Well I for one hope by this time next year, this current national nightmare is over. That somehow we as a nation can get over whatever hump Donald and his minions have constructed. And whomever is President when it all shakes out, actually once again makes me proud to be an American and not embarrassed to be living in a nation that somehow put such a person in charge. Sorry, the jokes still not funny.

Saturday, December 02, 2017


As the Republicans tax scheme is this much closer to reality, and now that Michael Flynn has pled guilty, the question becomes does Donald’s presidency actually even last to the end of this year?

LOCK HER UP? Really? I guess not. More like, I think its time that they think about how they can apologize to Hillary Clinton and give her her proper due, if not her rightful position. Maybe now those lies that these traitors threw at her, which millions believed, that turned her into a pariah for too many citizens, which caused many of them to vote for Donald, will be seen to the world for what they really were, slanderous lies. People believed and still believe the lies told by a pack of con men who spread conspiracies and nonsense, instead of facts and real evidence that showcased what a pile of manure they were continuously spewing on a never-ending loop. The “Believe me” future President has lied his ass off, and unfortunately people believed his lies and sadly helped to elect a possible traitor that looks more and more like the monster that all the news reports showcase he apparently is.

Who’s the puppet? Well apparently the American people were. So Trump, the whole thing is fake news, hm, I think not. I’m not gonna say I told you so, but apparently the conspiracy, that the Russian’s had involvement with our election actually is real. No matter how many times Donald tells us to believe him that it isn’t. Today’s announcement proves or at least puts an end to the lie that no one in the White House had any involvement with colluding with the enemy. That the Trump campaign and worse his administration had been and still could be secretly working with Russia. Which might explain why he and his cabinet seem to be systematically destroying the infrastructure of our government. Maybe this was part of the deal Vladimir requested to assist the Trumpeters into getting into office. Unlike Hillary’s emails or her handling of Benghazi, or even the ridiculous Uranium accusations, this scandal I think can officially be called bigger than Nixon’s Watergate!  

After Al Franken’s shocking USO accusations of misbehavior exploded on the air waves, I began working on a column about all the powerful and mighty being taken down by their criminally sexist behavior. Something I honestly didn’t want to get into, but sadly it turned out that the ugly side of human nature happens to be a big part not only with our political leaders, its also effecting the giants in the world of entertainment as well. By the time Charlie Rose’s and Matt Lauer’s career was over in an afternoon I had had enough, and was finishing up my long winded argument to save Al Franken’s political future, even as a now fifth woman has reportedly come out against him, while agreeing with all the other beheadings why was I siding with Al? Why him, why save him, if everyone else has to go? Why should he be given a chance to stay, until the accusations against him are proven true or false or actually of criminal worthy punishment? That is besides of course the embarrassment of being called out for actually acting like a jerk and having to sit back and ponder if anything else in your past could also be misconstrued as a heinous act worthy of being erased out of existence. 

Well to those out there who want to lump the Senator in with even the worst pedophile, my response is, if he needs to go than all the others including our sitting President have to. Less we forget, Donald currently has 16 women accusing him of acts that shall we say aren’t presidential. That ‘Access Hollywood’ video, which he now is jokingly trying to make us believe the audio inside the bus wasn’t actually him, alone could make him force to end his administration. I ponder what’s his tipping point? So far his accusers have been mostly ignored by the media and those in power who could force his resignation. Roy Moore who's running for the Alabama Senate seat has been accused of child molestation, but sadly the inbreds in Alabama have no problems with those issues either. I guess better a child molester than a democrat. 

It is heartbreaking to ponder, who can you trust when your inspirations and role models actually turn out to be closeted gropers, rapists and worse. Now it feels like practically every man in power uses theirs to abuse people because they can. And whats worse are the numbers of victims who have come out exposing the ugly truth about people in power taking advantage of others. At least the good thing in all this if there can be anything good from such heinous acts. The pendulum has turned. Think about how many years it took for Bill Cosby’s accusers to be believed and most still don’t. Lastly on this subject, for those like Chuck Todd, who want to bring up Bill Clinton and ponder if we should look back at his Presidency because of the sexist awful things he did or was alleged to do. That if it happened now, he would have been forced to resign. Really? You want to compare events with pedophiles and rapists with a consensual relationship. Must I remind you, that Monica, if I can be so bold was an adult woman and she was in on it, she wasn’t being molested or abused. Granted the woman worked under the President as an intern, and yes he lied when he said he did not have sex with that woman. But to discuss drop kicking a former President for that crime as opposed to all the others, that all the others have done that was far worse, is simply a way to kill valuable airtime and frankly change the subject. 

So just when I was about to bang my head against the wall over the growing list of the famous and powerful, who have been outed as sexual deviants the powers-that-be have sent us all a ray of sunshine. Simply put, Michael Flynn has flipped! The end is possibly nearer for the Trump Presidency than any of us could have ever imagined. And yes, Joy Behar is right, this is a moment to jump for joy and dance with glee. Because the clock has just begun ticking on when Donald resigns or is removed from the office of President of the United States. My best guest right now is our Commander-in-chief might be out by New Years Day. 

You see the “Lock Her Up” former member of Trump’s inner circle, shook the White House to its core and probably turned the President’s face the color of pink grapefruit, when he pled guilty to one count of lying to the FBI. But before you get upset like I was while listening to the announcement that he had pled guilty to one measly charge, simply take a deep breath and let out the negativity. You see, according to the talking heads, the reason for the very low charges is because the man has cut a deal and will be spilling all of the beans he’s got on all the deplorable members of Trump’s inner circle. Of course getting just 5 years in prison as opposed to possibly decades or worse, or caving in to save his own son’s criminality might also have been good incentive for Flynn to flip. 

With his plea deal, Michael Flynn became the forth member of Donald’s inner circle to be charged in the ever growing Russian investigation. The now possible early exit of Trump from the White House began a few months back when Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulous were dragged across our television’s and revealed as people who had lied to us about their involvement with Russian operatives during the Trump campaign. Each time the next traitor came out, Trump’s ‘believe me’ speech sounded more and more like a puppet reciting lines. He or some, or all of his associates are possible actors in the crime of the century, the stealing of  America’s Democracy by a foreign nation on behalf of wannabee dictator or is that king?

Sadly even as the evidence of Trump’s crimes grow, his Republican friends in the Congress have been either ignoring the obvious, perhaps in on it themselves, or actually trying to stop or slow down the investigation long enough to get as much of their agenda passed until the bottom drops off. And as fate would have it, on the same day the lid might have been opened on discovering how high this crime takes us, the hypocrites in the Senate approved the Mitch McConnell led ramming through of Trumps tax scam. There were no hearings. There wasn't even time to read the bill for most. And get this, Lobbyists, not the Senators, were actually making changes in it up until the last minute. The democrats probably were just happy to be allowed in the room to cast their votes against it. 

At the last minute, the Democrats requested the weekend to get a chance to at least read it and decide if in fact it was a good bill like the republicans claimed. Of course the monsters in charge refused to allow it. Heinous. So now that stage two is complete, all they have to do is mesh the House and the Senates bills together, and come up with something they can pass on a straight party line vote. Hopefully for the good of our nation, that won’t be as easy as it was too jam it down the throats of the Democratic members of the Senate. Whats worse, according to what I’ve heard, and I guess now we’ll see whats actually in the final draft that was approved, there are provisions in the bill that reveal to the American people what monsters these Republicans are who voted yes after the stroke of midnight as late Friday, December 1st. turned into very early Saturday December 2nd. And once they learn the truth, and discover several provisions in it that would kill Obamacare, that would give personhood to fetuses and that would ban certain second term abortions, that had been slipped into the bill, me thinks the masses won't be quiet. At least the hope if any of this get signed into law, some of these under-handed provisions would be stricken out of the language before they actually vote for the bill that Trump eventually signs into law.  

The only good thing I see coming out of any of this is, if Trump actually has his Christmas wishes answered and signs into law his dream tax con, right afterwards the Republicans in power will wash their hands of him. Immediately they would call for his impeachment, because suddenly Trump’s Russian colluding will have too much damning evidence for even them to disbelieve. I’m hoping none of that scenario needs to happen. That with Michael Flynn’s plea deal, his departure actually occurs before the Republicans have a chance to hand him his one and only legislative victory. But even if that fantasy doesn’t occur and the bill does pass, nothing is gonna stop his one-way ticket out of the Oval Office. Donald and his minions believe in their hearts that all they need is a victory, any real achievement and everything else will disappear. That all would be forgotten in the glory of winning something… I mean anything. I can’t even remember a day now, when that dream wasn’t talked about on air as Trump’s last ditch effort to save his administration. And the way things have been looking lately that probably would be the logical next step. But I’m beginning to believe that happy ending for Trump ain’t in his future. My feelings of Trump’s departure happening sooner than any of us could have ever imagined isn’t only mine. I’ve already heard several voices on television express similar notions. Seems they agree with me, apparently once they get Trump to sign off on this legislation, all bets are off when Donald's future ends in the White House. 

In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if right after he signs it, the man steps down. Donald in the end really got what he was after anyway. The biggest score in history, except for perhaps what Putin is pulling in Moscow. As for his criminal charges and treasonous actions, as soon as he steps down for ‘whats best for our nation’, his replacement Mike Pence will last long enough in office to pardon him and rescind Gay marriage. Afterwards he will resign himself for his own lies about Mike Flynn, before being pardoned by future President Paul Ryan. That is unless once in power Paul Ryan fully reveals his stripes and scarily Donald would suddenly look acceptable as Ryan begins destroying what ever remains of Social Security and Medicare. 

Of course, I wouldn’t be surprised if sometime between now and February, instead of Trump getting the heave-ho first, its actually his god-awful Vice President. Mike Pence, the fool from Indiana, who isn’t allowed to be in the company of women because I guess either they can’t control themselves or he can’t when a woman is near, could be the next fish to fry. Pence could be the next target on the food chain, and resign or make his own plea deal, because of all of own lies in connection with Michael Flynn or possibly Jared Kushner or even Jeff Sessions’ crimes. If that happens, the question is, who gets the gig of Trump’s second Vice President. Presumedly, if we use history as the rule after former Vice President Spiro Agnew Nixon’s number two, pled no contest to a single felony charge of tax evasion, and resigned his office, he was replaced by the then House Minority Leader Gerald Ford. So if Pence resigns first,  if history repeats itself again, Paul Ryan would become Vice President, and if Trump gets impeached or resigns, whomever is Paul Ryan’s replacement as Majority leader would become his Vice President.   

George Papadopoulous was the first traitor who worked for Trump who pled guilty to crimes in connection to the Russian investigation. Michael Flynn's plea deal made him the second member of Trump’s inner circle to also plead guilty. Ironically this explosive revelation only came out after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was launched because Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey. Comey was reportedly canned by Trump because he wanted him to end his investigation of then National-Security Adviser Mike Flynn. Oh, I also should mention Donald’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is reportedly the person who suggested Comey needed to get fired.    

Now not only did mister high and mighty admit that he lied to the FBI about his meetings with Russians, he also lied about his meetings with them and the Israelis on behalf of their problems with the Palestinians.  The best part for the investigation and the worst part for the Trumpeters is, it seems Flynn was taking these meetings on behalf of someone in the Trump White House during its transition into power. And that person was later revealed as the world was still reverberating from the days big announcement to be Jared Kushner of all people! Sadly for Jared, he’s already been asked under oath about these events and has swore that he never had anything to do with any of this. So apparently his crimes start with perjury just as Flynn’s were. But lets add his second criminal act. Jared Kushner has also broken what they call the Logan Act. Apparently its illegal for unauthorized citizens to negotiate with foreign governments, who have a dispute with the United States. 

Well Jared while working for daddy-in-law, was doing just that as he tried to go around the policies of the Obama Presidency, attempting to under cut its agenda. Sorry thats a no no and a criminal act. Luckily for him all the experts say Mueller would never use The Logan Act to go after him. But unhappily for him that criminal action is the least of his worries. Remember, just like Flynn, Jared has now been caught lying to the FBI. So his deal will be on the table soon, that is if it already hasn’t been offered and agreed upon. 

One last thing, ABC had reported, but than walked back part of its report, that in Mike Flynn’s plea deal he agreed to testify under oath that Donald J. Trump had directed him to meet with Russian operatives. Several news agencies afterwards, came out and said that part of the plea deal hasn’t been verified. So that could be wishful thinking or as Donald would call it fake news. But if it is true, than the end of our national nightmare could be at hand within days. If its not, get ready for riots to start occurring in the streets as the tax scam gets revealed and as the truth of the trumpeters colluding with Moscow becomes more and more a likeable impeachable offense. And unless the rights of millions more lose their constitutional rights to vote, which it seems a lot of them did during our last Presidential election, get ready for the biggest landslide in Congressional history. If that occurs and we get the return of democratic control in Congress, the swift removal of the man himself would begin, as well as anything Donald has enacted, rescinded, and done to ruin everything that made America great in the first place.
