‘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....

Several Efforts Already Underway to Unseat Trump the Moment He’s Sworn In

IMAGE CREDIT: POLITICO.COM Efforts to impeach Donald Trump are already underway, with a number of legal experts and angry voters looking for potential ways to unseat the deeply unpopular Republican as soon as he is sworn in as president. Even before Trump was officially declared the winner of the 2016 presidential election, there was already a flood of people taking to the internet to look up the process of impeachment and exactly what it would take to impeach Donald Trump. Google searches for “how to impeach a president” jumped by 5,000 percent in the hours after election results started coming in, the Independent noted. Many others looked up the actual process for impeachment, which is a fairly complicated procedure that includes separate voting from the House of Representatives and Senate. But let’s just be real for a moment, why would America let a self-confessed serial rapist occupy the Oval Office? I think that would only happen by mistake, and the average American voter just made a mistake that can only be described as...
