An Excellent Description of the Swamp Fox, aka ze prezident

This is a comment on a post on Crooks & Liars.  The link is here.  It is one of the best descriptions of D. J. Trump I've reard.

tramp is a political neophyte that does not understand the separation of powers our Constitution maintains.

tramp is a lying hypocrite for not being patriotic enough to release his tax returns and prove to the American citizenry that he is working for us and not Putin. Remember this, tramp does not trust YOU enough to release his tax returns.

Who could have guessed that a reality TV star with no government experience, 6 bankruptcies, 5 kids from 3 different marriages, 19 charges of sexual assault, and 4000 plus lawsuits, could be so bad at being president?. tramp is one who is against lots of things but doesn't seem to be for anything, offers bombastic and contradictory promises, is a terrifying Orwellian statesman, insults veterans, threatens a free press, mocks the handicapped, denigrates women, immigrants and Muslims. 

We might as well of handed the flight controls of a 747 over to pilot with only model air plane experience.

Jesus v. Trump

When I saw this photo I had to work hard not to throw up. 

Then, I thought the person who was waving the sign was probably a confessing Christian and that led me to search for some Biblical wisdom which would justify such a comment.

Anyone with any knowledge of the New Testament knows immediately that there is nothing in that collection of tall tales and extended letters that would provide a basis for thanking the "Lord Jesus For President TRUMP."

But I did find a verse that describes in a perfectly poignant fashion what Jesus would have done if he had been at this rally.  It's in the Gospel of John, chapter 11, verse 35:

"Jesus wept."

Cat Meets der Fuehrer

This wonderful GIF was found in a comment section on a Crooks & Liars post.  It is, so far as I can tell, the work of Merlin.

The video Steve Mnuchin tried to suppress

Steve Mnuchin, an investment banker, film producer and hedge fund manager, is the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. In other words, he's another of Trump's swamp creatures.

Ivanka and Kim Yo Jong

  • The following is a bit of propaganda from AOL:

  • Ivanka Trump will arrive in South Korea for the Winter Olympicsclosing ceremonies on Friday.

  • Her appearance is sure to spark comparisons to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, who drew media attention earlier on in the Olympics for her role as a cheerful propaganda pusher.

  • The two women have superficial similarities, but Kim is the head of propaganda for a brutal authoritarian regime.

What was the difference again?

The Lyin' Paul Ryan

It has become commonplace to state that most Republicans are liars. Republicans in Congress, in our state houses, and in city and county governing bodies, lie as a matter of course. The end justifies the means is their meme, their motto, the basis of their lives.

And because their "end" almost always hurts our country and the great majority of the people in our country, we must conclude that their lies are essentially treasonous.

If you wonder why Congress hasn't gone after the corrupt swindler who currently occupies the Oval Office, it's because they are one, part of a global network of liars, tied into our archenemy, Russia, with the ultimate goal of solidifying their ham-fisted control of the United States political system to benefit themselves.

One of the worst liars is the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, or as he is better known, Lyin' Ryan. Ryan is a follower of Ayn Rand, who, in her books, taught that greed is a good thing, and the lack of morals or ethics, is essential for achieving one's goals.

Lyin' Ryan, believes Ayn Rand. He believes in Ayn Rand. That's why, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary, Ryan cries and lies that "entitlements" are the reason for our ballooning deficit. As if those of us receiving Social Security and utilizing Medicare did not pay into the system.  These so-called "entitlements" are not the reason for the deficit increase but rather the Trump budget is the gremlin as it cut taxes on the rich and thus drastically cut government income.

The deficit is going to increase exponentially, but the Republican liars don't care about that now that they are in charge.  If they can pay back the people who bribed them with money and promises, the deficit be damned! Some say that Republicans in Congress have sold their souls to maintain their power.  I'd say, "That's rich, because Republicans in Congress have no souls." They sold them long ago.

Lyin' Ryan needs to be called out for his reprehensible actions which are creating great pain and suffering for millions of Americans in order to give the rich a little more wealth.

Bess Kalb and the NRA - from The Huffington Post

Bess Kalb is a writer for "Jimmy Kimmel Live."  She has some pertinent and pointed thoughts re Republican lawmakers moaning about prayers and thoughts which they would be praying and thinking about relative to the shooting yesterday at the high school in Parkland.  At one time we lived within a couple of miles of that school and Lois Anne once ran a 5k part of which scooted by the front of the school.

Ms. Kalb noted that Marco Rubio and other nogoodniks (my word), offering their prayers to their non-existent god, and their condolences - must not forget their  condolences - received millions of dollars from the NRA which served to help keep them in office where they in turn made sure that nobody dared mess with the NRA and the NRA's desire to ensure that every man, woman, and child in the US of A had at least one weapon of "self-defense," in their possession.

The lawmakers have been very successful in that enterprise and are currently planning to enact another law which would basically do away with background checks which will most certainly be signed by Prezident Thumper.

It should also be noted that Prezident Thumper, after 32 seconds of deep thought, said he thought that the people of south Florida could have done a lot more to stop this shooting but they neglected to see the "signs" of trouble in the atmosphere.

* * * *

Ms. Kalb states that "In the 2015-2016 election cycle alone, GOP candidates took $17,385,437 from the NRA.  And that doesn't count the $21,000,000 the NRA gave to Prezident Thumper.

Prior to replying to individual tweets, Ms. Kalb "shared a few other choice words about lawmakers collecting cash from the gun lobby:
God have mercy on your NRA-kept souls:

Richard Burr

Roy Blunt

Thom Tillis

Cory Gardner

Marco Rubio

Joni Ernst

Rob Portman

Todd Young

Bill Cassidy
