Intel Patriots Protected Evidence of Russian/Trump Connection

Good Day World!

When Trump won the presidency, officials from all 18 intelligence agencies scrambled to save evidence they were collecting on collusion between his campaign and the Russians. 

Citing unnamed former officials, the New York Times says Obama's aides left a "trail of evidence" across different government agencies to prevent the incoming Trump administration from covering up or destroying evidence.

That evidence is surfacing like a wrathful watchman for freedom. 

First, Trump's pick for National Security Adviser Michael Flynn gets caught lying about his conversation with a Russian official during the election.

Now we find out another Trump pick for Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, met twice with the Russian Ambassador of the United States (when he claimed under oath he didn't communicate with the Russians).

This isn't over. As more little Trump IEDS are discovered by Congress, Republicans are going to be faced with a tough choice when evidence against Trump personally (tax records?) proves he was in cahoots with Putin.

That's treason.

Ironically, the House recently voted NOT to look into Trump's taxes.Odd. Collusion somewhere? You bet.

Will there be more Trump surrogates exposed in the days and months ahead? You bet.

How about Billionaire Wilbur Ross who was just confirmed as Commerce Secretary? There's questions over his Russian ties such as his relationship with a Cypriot bank that has ties to Putin allies.

Busted! Another Trump Nominee Caught Talking With Russians

Good Day World!

Another big lie. 

Trump and cronies got cornered when information came out that recently appointed Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, met with a Russian Ambassador twice before the election.

First it was Flynn. Now Sessions. Whose next?

Sessions lied during his confirmation when he said he "did not have communications with the Russians." His lawyers are busy frantically parsing his words on record in an attempt to defend him.

The White House quickly came out in Session's defence saying it was perfectly legal for Sessions to meet with the Russian Ambassador, and that he met with 25 other ambassadors too.

One problem with that. No one else from Congress met with the Russians during the presidential campaign.

The fact is there were accusations of collusion between Don the Con's campaign and the Russians that were being widely reported by the press.

Sessions picked this period of time to secretly talk with one of Putin's stooges.

At the time, then-Sen. Jeff Sessions, met with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the midst of last year's bitter election campaign, the Alabama senator was not only serving as a surrogate for candidate Donald Trump but had been named chairman of the campaign's National Security Advisory Committee.

Go ahead and take a moment if you gagging. This whole affair stinks of corruption, greed, and treason. 

Thump's campaign got a lot of help from the Russians.

That according to the 18 intelligence agencies who have concluded an investigation needs to be conducted to fully understand the extent of Russia's interference with our election, and Team Trump's constant contact with Russian officials during the elections.

The proof is out there. Before President Obama left the White House he had the intelligence agencies save, and store, all of the information gathered by our government and intelligence from other countries like Britain, France, and Germany.

A Fight For Survival: Trump VS The Bumblebees

                                        Good Day World!

Trump's latest buzz kill...

A WWF takedown of our environment is underway as faithful Trumpanzees suspend rules set up by the Obama administration to protect the rusty-patched bumblebee (Bombus affinis) and other endangered species from extinction.

The science is clear - Bombus affinis is headed toward extinction, and soon, according to Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) senior attorney Rebecca Riley.

So why does Chump want to take the bumblebees protection away?

Why has he instructed agencies to withdraw or freeze an array of rules that were intended to protect public health and the environment?

Guess what?

Trump's billionaire buddies at Bayer and Syngenta are doing the happy dance because they will get to resume using a deadly pesticide - Neonicotinoids - that makes them billions of dollars every year.

Just good old Thump stimulating the economy right?

The loss of the rusty-patched bumblebee would be a significant one, and a harbinger of greater losses to come.

The bee is one of 47 species found in North America, more than a quarter of which face the risk of extinction, according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has filed a lawsuit against what they claim was an illegal move by the Trump administration.

This is the third lawsuit that the NRDC has already filed against the Trump administration for its attacks on regulations.

By allowing these corporations to peddle neonicotinoids without concern for our environment, Lump has lowered even his bar for being a baseless moneygrubbing brat.

Other victims of neonicotinoids include, hummingbirds, butterflies, bats, earthworms, and now marine life off the Central American Barrier Reef.

These poisons are being found in our rivers, soil and even our brains.

It's now become even more of a fight for everyone's survival. We need those bees. We need clean water. We don't need a profitable poison in our brains.

It's bad enough that peopling are drinking orange kool aid too.

Anti-Trump Sentiment: Will Protesters Fall Victim to 'Resistance Fatigue?'

Good Day World!

Lately I'be been blogging about how nice it is to see Americans unifying in their opposition to the Trump regime.

Seems like there's been protests since Day One of Potato-Face's inauguration. 

That's because there has been.

The most recent was a nationwide protest called "Day Without An Immigrant." 

It was followed by a "General Strike" in over 100 cities nationwide. Chump's Florida campaign rally two weeks ago was met by protesters.

Thousands marched at a Muslim solidarity rally in New York. 

On President's Day - protester's nationwide held "Not My President" rallies.

More protests are coming down the line. Count on it. But there's also a backlash to all of these protests.

It's called "Resistance fatigue."

It's trendiness can be credited to Google engine Yonatan Zunger, who surmised in a January Medium essay that tiring Americans out was the motivation behind Trump's nonstop battery of executive orders.

I'm not sure I totally agree with Zunger, but it's something I wouldn't put paste our pasty-faced illegitimate president.

As far as I can see there's not going to be an end to the protests until Chump is impeached. If he manages to stay for his full term I'll be really surprised.

One way or the other chaos will continue in our country until Dump is gone. 

The question is how long will the resistance to his corrupt regime last before burn-out takes its toll?

I'll Take a Blundering Clown Over A Mean Kid Who Constantly Lies

Good Day World!

This is scary.

I watched an interview with former president George W. Bush on the Today Show yesterday, and was stunned to see how normal he is in comparison to Trump.

When Bush said that the power of the presidency can be addictive, and that an independent media is necessary to keep things in check, I almost couldn't believe what I was hearing. 

My memories of Bush involve a clown blundering his way through his last term. He left office as one of the most reviled presidents in our history at that point.

In a case of you ain't seen nothing yet, Chump is making Bush look pretty good. I can't believe I just said that!

One thing you can say about Bush is he isn't an egomaniac like Lump. He also genuinely cares about veterans. Maybe it's out of guilt for leading us into a war that should never have happened.

Bush talked about his new book which features paintings he did of each individual veteran who was profiled. In contrast to Trump's "it's all about me" attitude, Bush's book features people who served their country.

The difference between the two men is one is a blundering clown (Bush), and the other is a very mean kid who never grew up (Rump) and can't stop telling lies.

Did Bush lie while in office? Hell yes, he did! 

Just not every day Like Dump. Politifact has followed Hump's presidency and reports there hasn't been a day since he's been in office where he hasn't told a lie.

I doubt if there's every been a politician who hasn't lied about something. Don-the-Con however has made an art out of it. No one can look you in the eye and lie like him.

Bush's evil sidekick was Cheney. Chump's is Steve Bannon who makes Cheney look like a Nobel Prize nominee.

I never had the feeling Bush purposely wanted to cripple our society with an illegal war. He was heavily influenced by Cheney and his cronies. Unlike Donny-Little-Hand who has plenty of advisers that he mostly ignores. 

Bad boy Bannon would be the exception. He's another angry kid trapped in a man's body.

I've little doubt that history will treat Bush better than Dump. I'm not absolving Bush for his crimes, but I never had the feeling he purposely wanted to create chaos and promote racism.

Like Trump.

America, and the rest of the world, is watching with concern as Lump attacks the Republic, minorities, and anyone who tries to stand in his way with facts and laws.

Our first illegitimate president is like a kid who can't wait to blow out the candles of his birthday cake and plunges into it face first with squeals of glee.

It's just a matter of time before responsible adults send Little Donny on his way and fumigate the White House.

'Please Take a Seat, Welcome to the Trumpies!'

Left - Official Trumpy Award - Each faux marble hat made in China with Trumpies Logo: "There's A Sucker Born Every Minute"

Good Day World!

Still hankering for another awards ceremony after watching the 59th Grammy's?

Gotta love that Adele and her song "Hello."

Maybe you watched The Academy Awards yesterday and watched Casey Affleck get Best Actor, and Emma Stone get Best Actress. 

But you still want more.

So, I've come up with a new awards ceremony that will only be popular for about four years. It's going to be a night of entertainment and awards unlike anything you've ever seen before.

Yes. It's going to be yuge.

Ladies and gentleman...welcome to The Trumpies!

Awards will be presented in the following categories:

1. Most Bigoted
2. The 1st Lifelong Racist Award
3. Chief Ass-Licker
4. Top Liar
5. Biggest Hypocrite 
6. Best Alternative News Outlet

And now your host, Senior White House Adviser Stephen Miller:

"It's great seeing so many white faces out there! How are you doing? It's time for another Make America Great Moment. It's with great white-pride that I welcome you to the first annual Trumpies!"


"Our first award - Most Bigoted- goes out to Steve Bannon! Congrats Steve! We knew you'd get it.

"And now I'm proud to introduce the winner of the First Lifelong Racist Award.. none other than the former senator from Alabama, and now Attorney General, Jeff Sessions!

Comments after the conference was over...

1st Man: "I'm a bit surprised that White House Chief-of-Staff Reince Priebus got Chief Ass-Licker. I would have thought White House spokesman Sean Spicer had it tongues down!

2nd Man: "I sure wasn't surprised to see President Trump win the Top Liar award. He's been an inspiration to us all."

Trump: Looking For Love In The Wrong Place

Good Day World!

By now America knows that it's president is a thin-skinned liar, and egomaniac.

Donny Little-Hands can't stop praising himself by distorting facts and coming up with alternative facts.

His latest Saturday tweet (it's one of his favorite days to make bigly tweets!) is the most recent example.

Chump lashed out out the media for not singing his praises for reducing the National Debt in his first month.

He claimed that during his first month in office the National Debt went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama's first month. 

Sad. And of course it was a ridiculous comparison in the first place.

Obama walked into the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression and had to bail the country out. He did what presidents before him have done and took on debt to stimulate the economy.

As we all know, it worked. Trump inherited a vibrant economy. Instead of recognizing this fact, Rump convinced himself (with no evidence) that his administration was doing great.

There's one more thing Lump doesn't seem to know:
The debt probably ticked down, but it's due to the federal government re-balancing its inner-governmental holdings.

In other words, debt outstanding to the public has barely budged since inauguration day. 

In addition:

Business Insider reported that the federal government is still operating under the budget passed before Don-the-Con came aboard.

To summarize, our first illegitimate president is: 

1. Tying to take credit for something he didn't do.

2. Making false claims based on pure bullshit.

3. So dumb that he thinks no one will fact check him.

4. So vain that he doesn't care because he likes people to talk about him. 

What Hump doesn't realize is when he's caught lying (a daily experience) most Americans aren't okay with that. 

By trying to force feed his reality on the public Chump is looking for love in the wrong place. 

His only alternative is too hold campaign rallies for 2020 so he can get that love from his Hard Core followers.

Annual Conservative Freak Show Unveils a New Political Order - Trumpism

                                Good Day World!

Our first illegitimate president, Donny Little-Hands, refused to go to last year's meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) - also known as the annual conservative freak show - but this year he was one of it's star attractions.

Going forward the conference may be re-named (the White Light Party) if presidential adviser "Darth" Bannon has anything to say about it (you can bet he will). 

Bannon (in his first public appearance) bragged that under Chump there was now a new political order. He predicted "Trumpism" would overtake the conservative movement and fundamentally change the country.

As Bannon threw out red meat to the salivating audience he described what was happening under Rump's regime as the "deconstruction of the administrative state."

In other words, Democracy is being destroyed in favor of a new fascist regime that favors whites and the wealthy. 

The purge of people with color has already started. It was stopped by a federal court after 48 hours of chaos. The next ban is coming soon.

There was an interesting sidelight to the freak show that didn't get a lot of press. Only one senator, I'll kiss anyone's ass -Ted Cruz, attended the gala event.

In past conferences, members of Congress fought to be invited to it. They often ended up being the stars of the show. But their collective no-show this time revealed just how large the split is between real conservatives and Trump's followers.

Conservatives and Trumpsters are already on a collision course. Their uneasy alliance is based upon the conservatives fear of retaliation if they dare to defy the new political order.

Why Trump Is Already Campaigning for 2020

                                            Good Day World!

It's a case of putting the horse before the cart. Counting your eggs before they're hatched. Celebrating before the race is finished. 

The day Trump took the oath of office he filed to run for the presidency in 2020. In case you're wondering, no other president in our history had that much gall and ego.

Not to mention that the chances of completing his first full term without getting impeached are iffy. Oddsmakers have it at about 10/11.

When I first found out about Donny Little-Hands bid for a second term I was so surprised that I didn't know what to make of it.

That's changed however. I figured out why he did that. Yes, only I have the answer! Snark...snark.

After watching his first campaign rally in Florida last week everything became clear. The Lord of Narcissists need a group hug from his core because things have been rough for him thus far.

He knew he could count on his rabid followers for a good ego stroking.

It hasn't been easy for Chump finding out that he can't just bully his way through things like he did with his business empire.

In the first place everyone keeps calling him a liar. Then there's all those pesky laws based upon the Constitution. Frustration at not successfully pulling off an immigrant ban only made it worse.

So Dump called the mainstream news fake and created his own reality. He had a rally in Florida. 

Adoring followers lined up in the thousands to hear him revile the nation's free press and talk about his "yuge" election victory. Despite the fact that it was a month ago.

None of them were concerned about his actions in his first 30 days. As a matter of fact they all thought he was doing great.

I watched reporters talking to people in line to see Lump, and had to smack my forehead repeatedly! It was like listening to starry-eyed cult followers.

Reality has no part in their daily existence. They believe that only Rump tells them the truth and the rest of the world is lying. 

I predict that every few weeks, or so, Chump will hold a rally when reality closes in on him and he feels it's pressure. 

Look for a lot of rallies in the future.

Theodore Roosevelt and Trump: 2 'Yuge' Egos With Alternative Press Backers

Good Day World!

The majority of Americans realize Trump tells lies. 

Often really "bigly" lies that leave people gasping with astonishment at his departure from facts.

Not too many people are aware of what a liar and racist President Theodore Roosevelt was. Don the Con, aka Liar-In-Chief, merely continues Teddy's tradition. 

Most people associate Roosevelt with wearing funny round-rimmed glasses and charging up San Juan Hill with his Rough Riders in a blaze of glory.

A hero. 

Sorry. But that story kids read about in school history books about "Teddy" riding up the hill with his Rough Riders and winning the day is a blatant lie.

One worthy of Trump.

It's a "total fabrication" according to Jerry Tuccille, author of the recent book, The Roughest Riders. In the link below the author talks about what a racist Roosevelt was and what really happened at San Juan Hill.

Black Soldiers Were The Real Heroes at San Juan Hill and They Got No Credit

In summary, Teddy had a group of "newsmen" (alternative press) who followed him around like adoring fans/followers. They staged photos and wrote fictional accounts about Teddy's bravery.

Roosevelt was a con man, like Trump, who knew how to market his brand. Fox News is the latest in a line of alternative news that has been around us since the birth of the Republic.

The whole Fourth Estate is mainly mainstream news, but we have to recognize false news has also been part of our history.

Trump is desperately trying to do his best Teddy imitation but instead of charging up a hill and winning, he's been retreating down the hill trying to fend off a pissed-off American public.

Did Putin Offer Trump a Bribe To Lift Sanctions When He Was Elected?

                                            Good Day World!

There's been so much written about Trump's illegal activities that I'm afraid people are just becoming numb to them.

There was a story by Reuters last week that didn't get much press here in the U.S. They reported (in great detail) how 19.5% of Rosneft, Russia's state oil company, has been sold to parties unknown.

How Russia Sold It's Oil Jewel: Without Saying Who Bought It

This was done, according to Reuters, through a dizzying array of shell companies, so that the most that can be said with certainty now is that the money "paying" for it was originally loaned out to the shell layers by VTB (Russia's official bank), even though it's highly unclear who, if anyone, would be paying that loan back; and the recipients have been traced as far as some Cayman Islands shell companies. 

Here's the kicker...
Do you remember the much-maligned Steele Dossier, the one with the golden showers in it? 

It also included a statement that Putin had offered Trump 19% of Rosneft if he became president and removed sanctions.

It get's better, or worse, depending on how you look at it:

The dossier said this in July, and the sale didn't happen until early December. And 19.5% sounds an awful lot like a "19% plus a brokerage commission."

When the free press manages to get a break from Chump's daily antics I sure would like to see this story explored further.

I have a hunch that dossier is packed with facts Dump and his cronies don't want revealed, and that's another reason why he's calling out the media and claiming the stories about him are all fake.

Perhaps we'll find out someday.
