John Birch Society Making a Comeback in Texas Thanks To Trumpism

                                     Good Day World!

Much to my surprise, and disgust,the John Birch Society still exists. 

It's members have been dwelling under rocks waiting impatiently for a chance to re-emerge and spread their message of hate to a new generation.

That day has come.

In my day, back in the 50s and 60s, The John Birch Society took advantage of the Cold War to spread hate under the guise of patriotism.

Sound familiar?

In the last few years the John Birch Society has experienced a resurrection in Texas, the new epicenter for the group.

Gone is the organization’s past obsession with ending the supposed communist plots to achieve mind-control through water fluoridation. 

What remains is a hodgepodge of isolationist, religious and right-wing goals that vary from concrete to abstract, from legitimate to conspiracy minded—goals that don’t look so different from the ideology coming out of the White House

Here's an interesting irony:

The John Birch Society once thrived pushing the idea of Soviet infiltration in the U.S. government. 

Now, it wants to stop the investigation into Russia's 2016 election meddling and possible collusion with Trump's campaign.

Once considered a group of extreme loonies, the Birchers have found a new supporter in Trump, and his wacky administration. 

Even the Republican Party, once considered mortal enemies of the Birchers, are now considered an ally. How times change.

Texas Gov. Abbott distrusts the federal government. Period. He's the same clown that when serving as a Texas attorney general, filed numerous frivolous lawsuits against the Obama administration.

But, Gov. Abbott, is really famous for a stunt that thrilled the Birchers back in 2015.

Some Texans feared that a U.S. military training exercise called “Jade Helm 15was a covert attempt by the federal government to invade the state, seize Texans’ guns, and imprison conservative citizens in abandoned Wal-Marts, Abbott deployed the Texas State Guard to monitor the U.S. military.

A Bircher-friendly move if I ever saw one. 

It's no wonder the John Birch Society is so optimistic these days, they have an ally in Texas, and the White House.

When Is Trump Going to Dump Melania for Ann Coulter?

                                   Good Day World!

It would be a match made in hell.

Imagine that Trump got tired of Melania slapping his hand away every time he tried to hold it, and divorced her?

It would be number four, but Ann Coulter would really be his ideal partner. They both thrive on insulting people. They both love to tweet their inner frustrations and imagined victories. They both lie at the drop of a dime.

Coulter's latest rant...

...went late into Sunday night. She fired off a salvo of 32 combative tweets (not including re-tweets) at Delta Airlines because they made her move from her paid-for seat with extra room, to another seat, on a flight from New York City to West Palm Beach, Florida.

Coulter’s tweets were filled with insults to the airline’s flight attendants, employee screening and training, WiFi, even the woman who was assigned to Coulter’s original seat — she called her a "dachshund-legged" woman in one tweet.

After sustaining the barrage for more than 24 hours, the airline responded Sunday night.
We are sorry that the customer did not receive the seat she reserved and paid for,” Delta said in a statement posted to its website. “More importantly, we are disappointed that the customer has chosen to publicly attack our employees and other customers by posting derogatory and slanderous comments and photos in social media.
“Her actions are unnecessary and unacceptable.”
But Trump would have been proud if that was his woman. It's easy to see how much these two have in common. Their both rude and crude.
There was a scene out of the movie "Deliverance"  where a man starts dueling an Appalachian boy with his banjo. One plays for a moment, then the other responds. Great scene.
In a bizarre update, I can see Trump and Coulter dueling on twitter - each playfully insulting the other one and anyone else who dares to chime in.

Now This Is Entertainment: Hypocrite-In-Chief Launches 'Made in America' Campaign

Hypocrites get offended by the truth.” 
 Jess C. Scott

Good Day World!

I've always tried to buy products made in America.

Sometimes it isn't easy, especially when it comes to tennis shoes.

When I heard that our Hypocrite-In-Chief was launching a "Made in America" messaging campaign I laughed so hard my false teeth rattled!

Trump wants Americans to buy stuff made here, but that message is somewhat murky when you consider that his daughter Ivanka's whole fashion line is made in China, and that Trump himself has 89 patents for products to be made in China.

Double standard? Obviously.

In the next three weeks Trump will be staging dog-and-pony shows looking for good optics. Understandable when you consider recent White House optics. 

This week will feature products made in the good old USA.

Next week is "America Heroes" week that is expected to focus on American jobs.

And the third week will be devoted to the "American Dream" according to a White House official.

Trump's first dog-and-pony show is happening today. He's looking at locally made products displayed on the South Lawn of the White House.

This whole campaign will underscore Trump's plan to reform the tax code. Now there's a scary thought.

Who do you think will benefit the most by a revised tax code? Trump's billionaire buddies without a doubt. 

Despite repeated requests, Trump won't talk about his product patents in China, or Ivanka's clothes and shoes produced there in sweat shops.

In a feeble attempt to divert from the Russian collusion scandal - which is really heating up with Donny Jr.s special meeting with the Russians - Trump is hoping to get people's minds on another subject.

Good luck. Trump's dog-and-pony shows don't stand a chance against the constant flow of information about his cronies colluding with the Russians during the that's entertainment!

Sin Eaters in the White House Attempt To Absolve Trump's Actions

Good Day World!

They use to be called White House spokespeople. 

Their job was to share what the president was doing, and any of his future plans.

The National White House Press corp covered these briefings because it was a way to dig deeper into a story, or to clarify the administration's stance on a particular topic.

That all ended with the Trump regime.

Our prolific Liar-In-Chief needed more than just spokespersons, he needed "Sin-Eaters" to handle his arch enemy, the free press.

For the record, a sin-eater is a person who consumes a ritual meal in order to magically take on the sins of a person or household.

Traditionally, the food was believed to absorb the sins of a recently deceased person, thus absolving that person's soul. Consequently, sin-eaters supposedly carried the sins of all people whose sins they "ate."

Sean Spicer and Sarah Huckabee Sanders have not only been eating crow for Trump, they're absolving his sins by stonewalling the press, and just outright lying.

It's a unique position. A person has to be ready to shed all their dignity, tell lies without blinking, and repeat anything Trump says, claiming it as gospel.

All in an attempt to shield his Orangeness from himself.

Wow. It's got to be the worst job in the world.

Time for me to walk on down the road...

Blog Break Until Presidential Election is Over

I finally hit the wall today. I can't think of what to say about all of the madness going on in this country right now. I'm a writer...
