Closing Thought–07Mar18

You know this administration is well worth the entertainment they provide… would be extremely humorous if it were not a bit pathetic…….

Trump seems to think in his delusional haze that people are standing in line to work for his admin…….

President Trump on Tuesday dismissed reports of chaos inside his administration amid recent White House departures, claiming that his administration has a wealth of applicants for key positions.

During a joint press conference with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, the president told reporters that “everybody” wants to work in his White House.

“The White House has tremendous energy, it has tremendous spirit. It is a great place to be working. Many, many people want every single job,” Trump said of his administration and its frequent turnover. “Believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House. They all want a piece of that Oval Office, they all want a piece of the West Wing.”

“So many people want to come in. I have a choice of anybody,” Trump continued. “I could take any position in the White House and I’ll have a choice of the 10 top people having to do with that position, everybody wants to be there.”

Events tell a different story……30+ resignations in 13 months does not sound like people are dying to work in the Trump admin…..

My day is done…..time for some Thai food and a beer….keep smiling and I will be back with more stuff……chuq


Dear Democrats……….

It is closing in on the 2018 mid-terms and many seem to think there will be some sort of “Blue Wave” that will sweep Dems into offices at all levels.

I have my doubts but I am NO political strategist so what do I know…..I recently read a great letter that was sent to the DNC about Dems in general and their stands in particular… the letter it is very telling…….

Dear Democrats:

That was no government shutdown. It was a long weekend. It was a snow day.

Don’t get me wrong. I am no fan of shuttering the federal government as a tactic of political negotiation. In the first place, it inflicts hardship on the people you’re sworn to serve. In the second place, it confirms the U.S. Capitol building as the world’s most majestic day care center.

Shutting down the government is almost always the wrong thing to do. But as my pastor likes to say, if you’re going to do wrong, at least do wrong right.

Like I said…great questions and great points for Dems to consider before they step before the American voter.

But they will beat the same horse that lost them their majority…..I do not think they have learned anything…..the old…..doing the same thing over and over…….

Case Of Impeachment

Let’s talk impeachment…..NO …not everything is about Trump……

There is a wealth of talk these days about ways to remove a president……the one that rings true to most Americans is the term “impeachment”….but before the eye rolls start let me say that this post is NOT about the impeachment of our present president but rather a more historic one…. the trial of Andrew Johnson…..the president after Lincoln……

In May, 1868, the Senate came within a single vote of taking the unprecedented step of removing a president from office.  Although the impeachment trial of Andrew Johnson was ostensibly about a violation of the Tenure of Office Act, it was about much more than that.  Also on trial in 1868 were Johnson’s lenient policies towards Reconstruction and his vetoes of the Freedmen’s Bureau Act and the Civil Rights Act.  The trial was, above all else, a political trial.
Andrew Johnson was a lifelong Democrat and slave owner who won a place alongside Abraham Lincoln on the 1864 Republican ticket in order to gain the support of pro-war Democrats.  Johnson was fiercely pro-Union and had come to national prominence when, as a Senator from the important border state of Tennessee, he denounced secession as “treason.”

Hopefully we all learned something from the trial … the trial in 1990’s….just because the president is impeached does not mean he will leave office.

Class dismissed!

Sex, Lies And Bullsh*t

Sex, sex, sex……Flynn, Flynn, Flynn….taxes, taxes, taxes……say goodbye to Al Franken…….that was last year and in the mean time people are dying of disease in Yemen, nukes may go to the Saudis, Jerusalem has been made the capital of Israel……and the world continues to turn…..and in a slow burn thanx to the American president……

Let’s look at say Franken (my example du jour)……he has resigned because of his events prior to his election to the Senate and yet there is a good chance that a pedophile could be elected to the Senate from Alabama(he was not)… my how far we have come…..for in 1987 a candidate was forced to resign because of a photo of a young woman sitting on his lap….Don’t hurt yourself….the candidate was Gary Hart.

And today we can just say that it is “fake news” and all is okay and the candidate could skate to a win.

Lies….lies….lies…..our society is awash in lies…..lies about immigrants….lies about sexual antics of politicians…..lies about international situation…..but the biggest source of lies in our society is from the one person that needs to be truthful…..the president.

So far in August 2017 the lies are running rampant……

As of August 7, 2017, Donald J. Trump will have been in office as president of the United States for 200 days. This period of time will largely be remembered for the rancor and distrust sewn between his administration, the media, and the general public, as well as any numbers of investigations, scandals, and gaffes of various size and degree (occurring both on Twitter and in real life), but what stands out in perhaps the highest relief have been the falsehoods. (And his unconscionable perversion of the exclamation point.) Without further ado, a trio of Vogue contributors list what they believe to be Trump’s greatest hits: his most memorable, notable, or otherwise mind-boggling lies, from crowd size to James Comey. Follow along to see if your favorite made the cut!

Of course the “fake news” machine will have a field day trying to push back on the lies.

Now for the bullsh*t portion of this post…..

The hatchet job that Trump TV (FOX News) is doing on the FBI……while I personally have no love for the FBI I have no doubt that they are honorable and hardworking….the lies about the FBI has been taken up  by the cowards in the House and Senate…..these toads are regurgitating everything thing that FOX throws at the political wall.

The hard working bloggers that carry the torch for Trump continue to make excuses for Trump’s lack of any governing skills…..stock market is the Deep State that is after Trump….there is NO deep state ……..we do have a president that probably cannot pick his nose without doing harm or checking with FOX first.

Watch any “bad” news for Trump and the chorus like a Greek play, starts trying to make the case that someone somewhere is pulling the strings around Trump.
