If Just a Few ‘Boos’ Bend Him out of Shape, What Happens When Trump Is Pissed off While His Finger Is on the ‘Nuclear Button?’

IMAGE CREDIT: JACOBIN.COM Donald Trump is demanding an apology because his soon-to-be vice president, Mike Pence got a few boos, along with some cheers, when he attended the Broadway show Hamilton last night. I guess the cheers were OK with him, but the boos were certainly not so OK. Funny how he wants an apology for the ‘boos’ but hasn’t thanked anyone for the ‘cheers.’ Actually, it’s really not funny at all. Clearly, Trump is a psychopath who has no understanding, or even a care, about the fact that America was founded on the concepts of free speech and a free press, unless of course they benefit him personally. It is time to dump this chump before he even takes office. I am not joking, and America will definitely not be laughing if this dictator-like loser is actually allowed to become the 45th President of the United...

Face It America: Donald Trump Is a Con Man and a Fraudster Who Cares Nothing about You

Donald Trump with his sons Donald Trump Jr., from left, Eric Trump, his wife Melania Trump and his daughters Tiffany Trump and Ivanka Trump at hotel opening and combined campaign event (Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg) Americans need to face the obvious and do something about it–before we get too far into this. Even if we ignore the proof provided before the election that Donald Trump has been defrauding and abusing people most of his life, in just his first week as president-elect, alarming signs he will continue to do so as president abound. Before we get into that, however, we must not forget that he actually defrauded voters, by making promises prior to the election and then seeming to forget all about them, now that he has gotten what he wanted from them. No doubt Trump is a master of showmanship, diversion and obfuscation–as are all great con men–and he knows well that by throwing out conflicting statements left and right, night and day, people get confused and find it impossible to hold him accountable for anything. Gold Star for that, Mr. Trump. But as we take a little time to clear the smoke and look at the facts, we see a clear picture–not of a public servant who wants to make the country a better place for all of us, but rather a greedy and selfish abuser who wants to use the...

‘Outsider’ Trump Packs Cabinet Full of Establishment Politicians, Hmm…

Now, to those Americans who voted for Donald Trump because he is a ‘Washington outsider,’ I hate to say ‘I told you so,’ but you do need to read the list of the most-likely Trump cabinet officials put together by Politico yesterday – it is below. I must warn you, it is not a list, really, because it involves reading sentences and paragraphs. I know you are not fond of so much reading, but I think you will be glad you took the time to try and get through this one. Here it is, as reported by Politico: Secretary of State The leading candidate to be Secretary of State is former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump’s loyal supporters. Trump is also eyeing former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, but he’s seen as a less likely option, and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker has long been mentioned as a front-runner for the job. Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin, a 17-year-veteran of Goldman Sachs who now works as the chairman and chief executive of the private investment firm, Dune Capital Management, is the front-runner for the job. Secretary of Defense Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, a close Trump adviser who is taking a leading role in the president-election’s transition team, is the leading candidate for Secretary of Defense. Former George W. Bush National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley and...

George W. Bush Didn’t Even Vote for a President. Really?!

IMAGE CREDIT: WIKIPEDIA.COM I was shocked to read that George W. Bush didn’t vote for a president on November 8, 2016, he and his wife Laura simply left that part of the ballot blank. Left it blank?! Really?! I mean, I understand a lot of Millennials did this, because, you know, they have yet to figure out how the system actually works. When it comes down to the end – election day – in the United States, you either choose a candidate on either of the two major-party ballots, or you take a blind approach. The blind approach is to not vote, vote, but write in some other unelectable candidate, or to simply leave that portion of the ballot blank. Yet Former President George W. Bush took the blind approach. What that tells us is that even though he knows better, he really doesn’t care because his family, just like the Trump family, is all about getting back at your enemies. After all, his father lost to Bill Clinton, which makes the Clinton choice for president against family rules. Then, his brother lost to Donald Trump, which, of course, also makes the Trump choice for president against family rules. So hey, America be damned, right? The problem is, the Bush family values, which are simply about getting revenge, helped put the Trump family in power – and I have a very strong feeling that...

The Poor, Stupid Fools Who Voted for Donald Trump

As the saying goes, ‘a sucker is born every minute.’ Boy, there sure are a lot of suckers out there, aren’t there? -Donald promised them he is going to ‘build a wall’ between the U.S. and Mexico. He isn’t going to. -Donald promised them he is going to ‘prevent all Muslims from entering the U.S.’ He isn’t going to. -Donald promised them he will give them all jobs. He isn’t going to. -Donald promised them he will ‘make America great again.’ He isn’t going to. Wow, a guy who couldn’t win the table at the casinos he used to own, before they failed, has pulled a fast one on the most hurting and gullible population of America. For that, he should get a gold star and the desk in the oval office. Wise up...

America’s Richest Welfare Recipient, Mitch McConnell, Just Got a Big Raise from Trump

The man who makes his living from the government by doing nothing at a base salary of $193,400/year thinks business in America is not doing well because too many Americans feel “they’re doing too good with food stamps, Social Security and all the rest.” McConnell would definitely know a thing or two about that. McConnell’s penchant for intended laziness is well documented, starting with this infamous moment, as documented below, when he committed to making his main goal for two years the assurance that President Obama not win a second term (which, of course, he didn’t accomplish) – watch below: MCCONNELL ADMITS ZIKA BILL IS A LITTLE DIRTY Mitch McConnell argued that the Zika bill needs to have unrelated items attached to it — in this case targeting Planned Parenthood, preserving the Confederate flag and other items — because that’s how legislation passes. But McConnell is worse than a ‘Do-Nothing’ Senate Leader, his focus on nothing but politics can be directly attributed to the lack of approval for the funding requested by the White House needed to battle the fast-moving Zika virus. McConnell was recently asked about whether or not Congress would be able to approve that funding, and his response was that perhaps it could be, after Congress comes back from vacation, “after Labor...

We Thought We Would Get through the Bush Years, Too, Then the Iraq War and Near-Collapse of Our Economy Happened

People are funny, and Americans can be even funnier: they always seem to forget what happens when they do something wrong. We had the election of George W. Bush, who, like Donald Trump, didn’t win a presidential election because a majority of Americans wanted them to, they did so because of a ‘rigged’ electoral college system. To be clear, both Bush and Trump ‘won’ with fewer votes than their competitors. Hmm, let’s look back at the way that worked out with Bush. We started a war in Iraq that was unnecessary, illegal and caused the rise of Isis. Oh, and to top it all off, just before he left office, Bush almost put America’s economy into a ditch. And I don’t mean that in the figurative sense, I mean it literally. Get ready, America, because your biggest mistake – ever – is about to take...

America Has Entered Its Final Stage of Decline into Disgust

IMAGE CREDIT: CDN.TIMES OF ISRAEL   The idea that America’s president sells vodka on the side, along with many other things that aren’t good for us, is really a sign that we slipped into a state of disgusting decline. Forget about the separation of church and state (which I am sure most voters couldn’t even define), how about the separation of business from running a government of the people, for the people and by the people? It’s hard to imagine how one shills vodka while simultaneously claiming he cares about the health of the people he is constitutionally required to look out for. Oh, but that’s Donald J. Trump, a ‘man’ who really only cares about two things: receiving adoration from throngs of marginalized people and getting revenge on those who look at him the wrong way....
