They Showed Their Ass

Closing Thought–11Jun19

You know how the people you know complain about the Congress and the way they are a do-nothing bunch…..well yesterday the GOP showed exactly why they are the laughing stock of the nation….

The House Judiciary Committee on Monday held the first of a series of hearings to examine the findings of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in order to determine if any further action, including an impeachment inquiry, is needed.

But the Republican members of the Judiciary Committee chose to spend their time during the hearing delivering petulant, conspiratorial rants instead of taking the hearing seriously or asking any questions that might be relevant to the facts of Mueller’s report.

Most of the Republicans’ childish comments were directed at John Dean, who served as White House counsel to former President Richard Nixon. Dean was brought into the hearing to put Trump’s alleged obstruction of justice into historical context, given that Dean pleaded guilty to helping Nixon obstruct justice during the Watergate investigation.

They tried to be cute with John Dean and Dean handed them their asses at every turn……

The GOP has proven to the clowns I have always said they were and I appreciate them making me a prophet……and yet as silly as they all were they will be re-elected at most turns….so maybe the clowns and buffoons are the voters after all.

All in all the GOP clowns gave me a good chuckle yesterday….for that I thank them …..especially this d/bag……Hawley of Missouri……

“Talk about living in the past,” he said. “The Democrats want to talk about Watergate? I mean this happened before I was born! This is a total waste of time. It’s a total waste of time.”

Missouri senator says it’s a waste of time to study history because it was a long time ago

This statement shows just how much damage the educational policies of the GOP have done to the schools and learning in this country…..it is all a joke.

This stunt, and it was a stunt, was more pathetic than the Dems with the KFC bucket when Barr decided not to honor a subpoena……games are all these spineless freaks know….it is never about the governing just how they look on CSPAN.

Closing Thought–12Mar19

I have listened to our Beloved Leader on many occasions and his use of simplistic language leads me believe that he has NO grasp on complex ideas or thoughts.

My daughter and I were discussing our Beloved Leader and I told her that he says he is a”really smart person” but I think that if he is a grad of Wharton, probably the 2nd best business school, then daddy bought his degree.

Then I read something his professor i marketing had to say about student Trump……

Donald J. Trump was an undergraduate student at Wharton for the latter two of his college years, having graduated in 1968

Professor Kelley told me 100 times over three decades that “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.” I remember his emphasis and inflection — it went like this: “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddamn student I ever had.” Kelley told me this after Trump had become a celebrity, but long before he was considered a political figure. Kelley often referred to Trump’s arrogance when he told the story that Trump came to Wharton thinking he already knew everything.

I knew it!

Who needs to study hard to get ahead when Daddy has money and the school needs a new classroom?

 

CPAC–2019

Yep it is that time of the year again….the annual CPAC meeting…the meeting of the conserv minds (not now but in the past….it was where big political ideas were hashed out)…….now it is a collection to dolts, buffoons, misogynists, bigots and total mental midgets…..in other words cheerleaders of the Trump presidency.

I have waited for some of my conserv friends to post on the meeting….so far any true conserv is avoiding this group of slugs at all costs.

I guess it will fall on me to give my analysis……I am a progressive, a radical in some eyes, so my analysis may be a bit skewed….

The “Big Ideas” this time around is abortions and creeping socialism……in other words those ideas from the 1980s and Reaganite ideas and policies…..this is the best mental midgets can do.

Plus where are the Big Idea conservatives?  Gone to podcasts everyone……most true conservs will not come to help justify the stupid that is the Trump policies…..conservs like Rick Wilson, Bill Kristol, Steve Schmidt, etc……people that still think in conserv ideas and not the manure that Trump and his enablers push…..

Opening day of CPAC gave us a step back into conserv history……

Starving people eating dog food. Parents aborting babies after taking them home from the hospital. That was the dark vision — of creeping socialism and of abortion unrestrained — that marked the opening day of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the annual gathering of conservatives that offers an untrammeled view of Republican perspectives, and a sign of where the party is headed politically. President Trump is expected to speak at the conference on Saturday morning.

Reason.com has an op-ed that sums up what most true conservs are feeling about CPAC……..

This is what I’m thinking as I work up the courage to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), held annually just outside of Washington, D.C. The event, sponsored by the American Conservative Union, officially started today and thousands of conservatives are out in force. CPAC started in 1974 and there was a time in the Aughts when it routinely reached out to libertarians and even groups such as the ACLU. Over the years, Reason people, including myself, have spoken on panels there. But that was then and this is…a weird political moment where the Republican president is chumming it up with a North Korean dictator while his former personal lawyer and fixer is testifying about his boss’s alleged high crimes and misdemeanors before Congress. And the House is rejecting the president’s emergency declaration about a Southern border crisis. These are not normal times, so is there any reason to expect CPAC to be an island of normalcy? Probably not, especially given some relatively recent highlights of the conference.

As a progressive I like a good debate with my conserv opponents and friends….but what the GOP has now is NOTHING like the conservatism that many were proud to embrace……now all they have is hate, bigotry and falsehoods…..

I hope the conservs can reclaim their mantle for I miss them in the public discourse….but they cannot do it with the collection of slugs at this year’s CPAC….look at the agenda and the people that are talking……SLUGS!

http://cpac.conservative.org/agenda/

Our Beloved Supreme Leader had his day in the sun of CPAC…..his speech was a rehash of the 2016 election, the size of his inauguration crowd and finally he said that anyone that does not kiss his flabby ass hates America.

Two hours of rambling, babbling lies and bullsh*t (his word not mine)……was boring with NOTHING new…not even the use of bullsh*t was new……He gave yawns instead of ideas…..

President Donald Trump told an appreciative audience of conservatives Saturday that he will win re-election in 2020 and by a bigger margin than his 2016 victory, the AP reports. He mocked Democrats for their framework to combat climate change and said House lawmakers pushing to expand their investigations of him are “sick.” In a wide-ranging speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump rehashed his outsider campaign that overcame long odds and a crowded field of established politicians to claim the White House over Democrat Hillary Clinton. When he made his prediction of a second term, the crowd responded with chants of “USA, USA, USA.” Trump praised the conservative movement, saying “Our movement and our future in our country is unlimited.”

As he looked back to 2016, the president described himself as “probably more of a conservative than a Republican,” but says people just didn’t understand that. Trump also called the Mueller probe “this phony thing” and took aim at the Democrats’ Green New Deal, a policy proposal floated by some liberal Democrats in Congress and backed to varying degrees by several of the party’s 2020 presidential candidates. “I think the New Green Deal or whatever the hell they call it—the Green New Deal—I encourage it,” he said before mocking the notion of a world with “no planes, no energy.” The Democratic plan calls for a drastic drop in greenhouse-gas emissions from fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas, but in no way grounds airplanes or pivots the country to renewable energy only.

All in all CPAC has become an enabler of a worthless ineffective president…..the GOP is truly lost and as some have said…it is dead…..

Appearing on MSNBC with host Alex Witt, GOP strategist Rick Tyler was visibly upset at what he heard from Donald Trump during his speech at CPAC, and even more so by the enthusiastic reception the president was receiving.

Asked by host Witt, “What can be done to resurrect the Republican Party as it was — or is that gone?” Tyler said the party is dead.

“Rest in peace,” he lamented. “No, it’s over. The problem is that the Republican Party has no grounding governing philosophy anymore because they’ve signed on to all these things as I just mentioned that were antithetical to the conservative movement.”

DEAD…Dead…dead!

All in all CPAC is degrading to the conservs, degrading to American politics, degrading to the office of president and finally degrading to the sense of good taste…..

Turn The Page!

The Man Is A D/Bag!

While my better half is looking the other way……

We had the AG of the United States, a person who works for the people of the US, testifying before the House.

First let me say…the man was a condescending twat…he treated the people the represent the people of this country with utter contempt….a smug a.hole that was doing nothing to answer question accurately…his only concern was to brown nose his way with Trump for another job…..

This cue ball d/bag should have NEVER been allowed anywhere neqr a government job….for he cares little about the nation only what he can squeeze of the government…..a dick!

That is what I saw with this smug wanker……

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker appeared before the House Judiciary Committee Friday for a hearing that was as contentious as expected. Democrats repeatedly grilled him about the Robert Mueller investigation, and Whitaker insisted he has not “interfered in any way” with the inquiry, reports Politico. One of the more notable moments came as committee chairman Jerry Nadler was questioning Whitaker. “Mr. Chairman, I see that your five minutes is up,” Whitaker said, drawing laughter, reports the Washington Post. (See video of the exchange here; it’s around the 1:40 mark.) Whitaker also told lawmakers that he has not spoken to his boss about the Mueller probe.

“I have not talked to the president of the United States about the special counsel’s investigation,” Whitaker said. He declined to say whether he agreed with the president’s view that the investigation is a “witch hunt.” GOP Rep. Douglas Collins called the hearing “pointless” and accused Democrats of “character assassination.” Whitaker, meanwhile, seems to be near the end of his temporary tenure. The Senate is expected to confirm William Barr for the permanent position as early as next week. (Whitaker appeared only after Democrats agreed not to subpoena him.)

All in all this mental midget was a total embarrassment to anyone that has every held a government position.

I stand by my analysis……the MAN IS A DOUCHE BAG…kinda like his boss.

Closing Thought–12Oct18

So much happening in the world….so much news to be had…..a devastating hurricane, a missing presumed dead journalist, a market that is sliding and endless wars……so much happening and the president, Our Dear Supreme Leader, held an TV event in the Oval Office yesterday……he had a face to face with a nose picker, Kayne West.

No joke….one babbling idiot to another….

Elvis’ 1970 White House visit with Nixon has nothing on Kanye West’s sit down with President Trump on Thursday. Ostensibly, the meeting was to be about urban revitalization, workforce training, African-American unemployment, clemencies, and Chicago crime, per CNN. But in a freewheeling, 10-minute monologue the rapper, seated across from Trump in the Oval Office and decked out in his MAGA hat, touched on a vast array of subjects, leading USA Today to muse that “Kanye West out-Kanyed himself.” Of the aforementioned MAGA cap, Kanye told Trump, “There was something about putting this hat on that made me feel like Superman.” Here are some more choice moments from West’s visit to the White House, F-bombs and all:

  • “Trump is on a hero’s journey right now,” West said, per CNN, adding, “He might not have thought he’d have a crazy motherf—er like me [as a supporter].”
  • Speaking of cars, according to the Detroit Free Press, West said, “One of the things we gotta set is Ford to have the highest design, the dopest cars, the most amazing—I don’t really say dope. I don’t say negative words and try to flip them. We just say positive, lovely, divine, universal words. So the flyest, freshest, most amazing car.”
  • Regarding his recent revelation that he was diagnosed as bipolar, CNN reports, “I actually wasn’t bipolar, I had sleep deprivation.”
  • West did talk about clemency for Larry Hoover, alleged leader of the Gangster Disciples who is serving a life sentence, Slate reports. “There’s infinite amounts of universe and there’s alternate universe,” West said. “So it’s very important for me to get Hoover out because in an alternate universe, I am him.”

Want more? Watch the video here.

“Don’t worry about the future….all we have is today”……total CRAP!  But will play well with the head bobbers that support the Supreme Leader.

Is this what America wants from its “president”?  I am guessing yes…..the media covered this but not some of his rallies….so apparently the confused babble of Kanye is more important that the issues and news of the day.

My my how far will my country sink into the muck of stupid?

Please have a good day and a better weekend…..chuq

A Lingering Stench

Recently in a rally/speech/BS session Our Dear Leader made a reference of a stench in Washington…..he meant the Justice Department but I think he was looking in the wrong place……if there is truly a stench in DC then it comes from the source of most of the rotting policies comes from …….. the White House.

Instead of harping on an economy that is looking good Our Dear Leader has reverted back to  his silly little game with the DOJ.  Then there is the GOP…..they should be beating the economic drums for the mid-terms and yet they are going in a different direction……

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., says his party has a great economy and a “phenomenal record” to run on.

But that’s not the campaign most Republicans wage as they scramble to defend their congressional majorities in the home stretch of the 2018 election.

In recent weeks, fewer than one in five Republican ads have mentioned jobs or the economy, according to data provided to the USA TODAY Network by Kantar Media’s Campaign Media Analysis Group (CMAG), which tracks political ads.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2018/09/20/midterms-economys-booming-but-not-most-republican-tv-ads/1347592002/

I would advise the GOP to go with their strength but then on second thought….they have NO strengths…..they are cowards that do what they are told.

Nunes, Media Mogul

The Lapdog is fighting back!

If you do not like the news then make it up…..something the GOP excels at doing.

Trump’s own little boot licker has started a way to fight Fake news…….

Devin Nunes isn’t just complaining about what he sees as liberal “fake news.” He’s created his own media company to fight back, reports Politico. The Devin Nunes Campaign Committee has provided the money behind a site called the California Republican, which promises “the best of US, California, and Central Valley news, sports, and analysis.” (It was slow to load on Sunday, perhaps because of increased attention; it also has a Facebook page.) Two sample headlines: “CNN busted for peddling fake news AGAIN!” and “Understanding the process behind #ReleaseTheMemo.”

The latter is a reference to Nunes’ efforts as chair of the House intelligence panel to release a memo alleging bias by the FBI and Justice Department in the Robert Mueller investigation. Nunes has long complained that pretty much all coverage about him and his ally President Trump is tainted by bias, and a spokesperson emphasized the point when asked about the media company: “Until Politico retracts its multitude of fake stories on Congressman Nunes, we will not go on the record.” But Vox noticed that the California Republican seems to have issued its first tweet in the wake of the story: “We are real news, POLITICO.”

This whole thing is getting silly and yet pathetic…..if I do not agree with these types then everything I write is Fake News and everything they write is Fake News…

Calling something Fake News simply because you do not agree with the subject is silly…..but convincing people is as simple as taking to Twitter and calling stuff Fake News.

Speaking of Fake News……a historical look-see……..

Before Facebook, there was the coffee house. In the 17th-century, panic gripped British royal circles that these newly established drinking salons had become forums for political dissent. In 1672, Charles II issued a proclamation “to restrain the spreading of false news” that was helping “to nourish an universal jealousie and dissatisfaction in the minds of all His Majesties good subjects”.

Now, 350 years on, legislators across the world are seeking to do the same. Last week, the House of Commons digital culture, media and sport committee flew to Washington DC to grill representatives of big tech companies, including Facebook, Twitter and Google. The title of their session echoed Charles II: “How can social media platforms help stop the spread of fake news?”

Back to this person….this Nunes tool…..is in support of a person….not the nation….he deserves NO respect and should be arrested for violating the oath he took to become a Congressperson…….he is not protecting the rule of law……instead he is protecting a person.
