'Tis the Season: Trump Flu Has Infected GOP Senators


                                         Good Day World!

Winter. The flu season. 

Happens every year.

But the 2020 flu bug is much more dangerous than a case of sniffles, and sore throats. The fate of our republic is at stake this time.

Trump flu has infected Republican senators preparing to determine his fate in only the third impeachment trial in American history.

The debilitating effects of Trump flu include complete loss of shame, hyper partisanship, lying under oath, and the ability to avoid facts like the plague.

There is no inoculation for Trump flu. Once someone has it, chaos will rule their life as they follow the pied-piper of lies to whatever depraved depths he chooses to go.

Side-effects include; constant fear; rage; irreversible brain damage; belief in ridiculous conspiracies; and the inability to make independent decisions.

Cure?

Kick Trump's ass out of the White House by indicting him for his high crimes, or at the polls in November.

Those sick GOP senators that were infected will pay the price when they're kicked out of office by angry voters cleansing the government.

What Will They Say? Future White House Historians Studying the Trump Era


                                         Good Day World!

Someday, White House historians are going to look back at the Trump era, and cross themselves!

They'll compare it to the Dark Ages in Europe where monarchs ruled and the common man was at the mercy of the king.

They'll examine the mountain of lies Trump spewed while fouling the Oval Office with his corpulent body.

They'll marvel at how much corruption Trump got away with in a short span of time.

They'll chart how Trump's foreign relations were all failures, and how he almost launched World War III in the Middle East trying to divert attention from his senate impeachment trial.

They'll shake their heads with wonder when they check out his Twitter account and how he went after world leaders to just common Americans, like a rabid badger. 

They'll try to decipher Trump's handwriting, but will be unable to.

They'll pour over numerous charts and graphics that were presented to Trump during briefings to keep his attention as he did not read, and lost focus listening to someone else read. 

They'll also have the original Weather Chart graphic where Trump infamously took a black marker to it, and claimed Alabama was in the path of a hurricane (that was actually going in the opposite direction).

They'll have a compilation of Trump quotes from "I know the best words," to "I'm the chosen one."


BACK TO THE PRESENT

Because, I don't know if Trump is going to be indicted by the senate for high crimes and obstruction of justice, or if he's going to lose the 2020 election, I cannot complete how historians will record his exit from office.

Stay tuned.

Another Trump Coverup: Americans Want Answers Now, Not in Weeks!




                                          Good Day World!

While covering up the Ukraine scandal, Trump is also busy covering up another scandal/crisis that has set the Middle East on a war standing.

Trump's enablers in government abruptly - and with no excuse - canceled three classified congressional briefings yesterday that were related to the ongoing Iran crisis.

Today, The Pentagon scrapped a classified briefing on Iran for the House Armed Services Committee. Congress was informed that it would get briefings in the coming weeks.

Weeks! That's crazy! The balance of power in the Middle East has shifted. Americans are in danger. The public deserves to know why.

I think it's plain to see what's happening. Trump put out the word to stonewall congress - it's become a habit - about his bullshit reason for nearly starting World War III.

Now congressional lawmakers are going to have to fight tooth-and-nail just to schedule a hearing on what should be a HIGH PRIORITY issue. Who knows what he'll do next?

It's clear Trump and his puppets are lying about why he suddenly assassinated Iran's #2 leader. The changing stories coming from The Defense Department, The Pentagon, and The White House, point to a cover up.

At first, Trump claimed the American embassy in Baghdad was in danger of an immediate threat. Then it was four embassies. Then the threat went from imminent, to days, and then morphed into the excuse General Solumani has been a threat "for a long time." 

Sooner, or later, Trump's cronies are going to have to appear before congress and answer some serious questions.

For example: Why didn't the State Department issue warnings about specific threats to any US embassies before Trump targeted the Iranian general?

Trump is out-of-control. Being impeached put him over the edge. Why else would he do something so plainly stupid that it stunned Americans and our allies around the world? 

Iran was a wag the dog moment where Trump wanted everyone to take their eyes off his embarrassment that he's been impeached. It was also good theatre to rally his base and fake patriotism at an opportune time.

The majority of Americans aren't fooled by Trump anymore. The polls have shown that. After 15,000 plus lies in three years, Trump has no credibility here, or abroad.

The important thing however, is that the Senate does it's job fairly, and those GOP senators look at the facts before making their decision to acquit, or indict. Their choice is simple; country, or party.

Will those Republican senators elect to protect our Constitution... or, the most corrupt president this country has ever had?

After deciphering Trump's childish attempt, it occurred to me to ask my source why would Trump even need a resume?

There was a pause, then I received this:

"Trying to keep him occupied with something other than starting wars, attacking the media, and the upcoming Senate Trial. 

"Because a resume is all about him, Trump thinks it's like writing his biography!"

Just In Time: More Incriminating Evidence Against Trump

Good Day World!

Despite the White House's best efforts to stop more evidence from accumulating against Trump, another dump of damning facts has emerged.

This time evidence is coming from Lev Parnas, one of Rudy Giuliaini's Soviet-born associates who got embroiled in the impeachment inquiry.

The judge in charge of Parnas' (separate) case in New York, allowed the transfer of WhatsApp messages, text messenges, and images from his personal records, according to his attorney Joseph A. Bondy.

That spells more bad news for Trump.

M
cConnell has sought to dismiss the trial although it doesn't appear he has enough Republican support to get away with it.


With the additional evidence discovered in just the last three weeks, the case against Trump has become even more solid.

Seeing this, McConnell is even more determined to not have a fair trial.

The only chance of any fairness will come if four Republicans vote for witnesses and release of transcripts.

If witnesses are allowed to testify and documents are released, the trial could suddenly take an unexpected turn and Trump could be convicted.

I wouldn't bet on it, but you never know. We're not living in normal times.

Dazed and Confused: Law Enforcement Officers Can't Tell Cannabis from Hemp


Good Day World!

I wish I had a nickel for every story about cops pulling over people with hemp that they were sure was cannabis.

Thanks to the confusion between illegal THC-rich cannabis and newly-legal, low-THC cannabis - legally known as hemp - numerous lawful individuals have been unfairly targeted by law enforcement officials.

Here's a case to illustrate my point:

A couple of enthusiastic NYPD officers confiscated 106 Lbs. of raw hemp after a suspicious FedEx driver took it upon himself to report the shipment.

This was despite the fact that the cargo was shipped along with third-party lab reports and necessary documentation proving it was legal hemp.

The eager officers then contacted Green Angel CBD - who had ordered the $30,000 hemp shipment from a Vermont farm - and told them to come and collect their cargo.

Upon arrival at the station, however, the brother of the company's owner was arrested and charged with felony marijuana possession before being released on bail the next day.

Needless to say, the bust was a bust and all charges were dropped. Brothers in Hemp filed a lawsuit against the City of New York.

Meanwhile the confusion continues from state-to-state and from city-to-city. In most cases the hemp seized is destroyed before the owner can be cleared, resulting in financial losses that should never have happened.

One more true story related to the topic today:

This farmer had a million-dollar hemp crop until South Carolina bulldozed it

Until states and cities get their shit together and start educated their law enforcement personnel this perpetual problem will continue to hurt a lot of honest people and businesses.

It's appalling to me that law enforcement is universally ignorant about the federal hemp law and their own state hemp laws.

One Lie Too Many? Did Trump's Latest Falsehood Cross a Line?

Good Day World!

The president of the United States lies every day.


It's no secret at home, or abroad

Trump is the most prolific liar of the 20th, and 21st century. And he's getting away with it... up to a point.

He's earned his place in history by being impeached for lying about holding our ally, the Ukraine, hostage to achieve his political ends. But that didn't cure his lying ways. If anything he's doubled down.

Why? Because he can. He's confident that Senate Republicans will acquit him for abusing his power because they fear him, and his supporters.

Bringing America to the edge of a war with Iran with his dangerous lies about an imminent threat shows how deadly Trump's lies have become after three years.

He lied to Congress, and he lied to the House about why he ordered the drone strike that killed Iran's #2 leader. 

Apparently he crossed a red line with some Republicans in the House and Senate who are now asking for a real accounting of what led to the strike.

Trump's minions, from Pompeo to Pence, have been trying to paint a false picture of making America safer by assassinating Iran's top general who supposedly was about to attack at any moment.

The changing narratives from Trump and his cronies is muddying this attempt to coverup the truth under the guise of patriotism and leadership.

I have a hunch this latest lie about the reason he ordered the assassination of a foreign leader, is not going to go away soon. It'll hover over Trump's Senate trial like a pesky fly.

'Are You Ready to Rumble?' Trump's Senate Trail Slated for Next Week

Good Day World!

A battered and cowardly group of Republicans are preparing themselves for next week's rumble in the Senate.

The opening bell...

House Speaker Pelosi informed her caucus it's time to send the articles of impeachment over to the Senate, where the fight to stop a corrupt commander-in-chief will be held.

Quick historical fact: boxing was once entirely controlled by mobsters in all the major cities. They picked the winners and losers.

Moving on...

To further this modern day analogy of Trump and cronies controlling nearly everything like the corrupt old days of boxing, the Senate match is being rigged.

Senate majority leader, aka Moscow Mitch, already informed us of that. He has no intention of this being a fair fight. In recent days he's been working out the details of the upcoming political rumble round-by-round with Trump.

This kind of collusion, where the referee is already in one fighter's corner, recalls the mobs complete control of every outcome to a prize fight.

The Republican Party has been reduced to a bunch of has-been fighter's who once cared about our republic and stood up for it.

The pathetic puppets among the GOP Senators have already chosen to turn a blind eye to justice out of fear of Trump the enforcer.

There has been a slight movement (conscience?) among some Republican senators like Susan Collins, to level the playing field by calling for witnesses.

Trump, who is well-grounded in mobster (mafia) tactics, believes he has the fight fixed, and who can blame him? He's ready to rumble to a preordained decision.

Right now, the Democrats look like Marlon Brando in The Waterfront, a movie about a slugger standing up to the mob. His famous line "I coulda been a contender" sums it all up.

The Coronation is Complete: The Republicans Have Their King

Good Day World!

After three years of groveling and lying for Trump, Republican lawmakers have openly crowned him as King of the Un-United States of Amerika.

The coronation was this week when Pence and the White House told Congress and the Senate that Trump doesn't have to account for why he suddenly decided to assassinate the second most powerful man in the Iranian regime, putting America on a war standing.

Update: US targeted another Iranian official on same day as Soleimani, but the operation was unsuccessful.

This latest assumption of complete power for Trump has even pissed off some Republicans like Sen. Mike Lee from Utah. His reaction to the briefing from Trump's minions was one of outrage:

"It was probably the worst briefing I've seen at least on a military issue in the nine years I've served in the United States Senate," Lee told reporters right after the briefing.

"It was insulting and demeaning," he added while stressing he was in favor of a new war powers resolution.

Despite Trump's massive display of disdain for every law in the land and the Constitution, Republicans plan on protecting him in the Senate now that he's been impeached.

Moscow Mitch's open disdain for the whole impeachment process is clearly demonstrated by his announcement of working with the White House and being in lock-step with Trump.

Trump's acquittal in the Senate was the proposed coronation moment, but when given an opportunity to back Trump's attempt at Wag the Dog, they jumped the gun and prostrated themselves for him despite the risk of war.

I'm waiting for Trump to announce his Round Table of Orange Knights is going to replace Congress and the Senate. I'm guessing Rudy Giuliani is going to be named the official Court Jester soon.

The coronation is complete. The Republicans have their king.

Who Needs a Foreign Policy? Not Trump

Good Day World!

Among Trump's many stupid statements since slithering into office, is that he knows more than all of his generals when it comes to ISIS.

As a matter of record, Trump claims to know how to do anything better than anyone. The few adults that were once in Trump's administration are long gone. Driven out, or by resigning in disgust like John Bolton.Trump's taken charge of all Foreign Affairs.

The results are hardly surprising:

*The Ukraine scandal - got him impeached. A senate trial to acquit or convict soon.

**Selling out our allies the Kurds, to Turkey's dictator. Effectively destabilizing the Middle East. 

**Bringing America to the brink of war with Iran this week by assassinating their top general.

**Effectively defying NATO members on Iran nuke deal signed in 2015, even though the U.S. was an original signatory.

How often do we hear about Trump's foreign policy? 
When has he ever laid out a foreign policy strategy to Congress, the Senate, and the people who elected his fat ass?

I'll answer both of them. Never, and never. 

Who needs a damn foreign policy when Trump can just go by his amble gut and change it daily? The Republicans on Capitol Hill seem okay with his fly-by-the-diaper decision-making process, regardless of the consequences.

Trump's drone attack on a revered Iranian leader has united the people -who were starting to protest the regime's policies - and assured the region of continuing conflict as they seek revenge against "The Great Satan (Trump calls himself the Chosen One)."

Currently, all Americans have been alerted to the possibility of Iranian computer intrusions attacking our infrastructure. Thousands of new troops have been sent to the Middle East which is now on a war standing with an uneasy, unwritten, truce.

No one knows what will happen next. Just the way Trump likes it. Total chaos.
