The Day America Decided Not To Defend Freedom

Good Day World!

There's a beginning to all things big and small.

When Trump was sworn into office, a seismic shift in ethics, morality, and patriotism was set off, leading to the course we're on today... 

… where freedom is no longer being defended by it's biggest champion - America.

Trump has steered the ship-of-state into murky waters where our government no longer supports democracies across the world. His frolics with dictators are well-documented.

No words of encouragement are coming from the American government for those people who want freedom in Hong Kong. Instead, Trump "hopes" everything works out peacefully between China, and Hong Kong.

Yeah right.

The Ukrainian people have fought for their freedom and have a new fragile government that desperately needs America's help. 

So what happens?

Our corrupt POTUS punks the new regime and will only agree to send the military aid so badly needed by the struggling democracy, if they'll go after his political enemy Joe Biden.

Trump and his minions have idly stood by and watched governments increasingly shed their thin fa├žade of long established democratic practices, when international incentives and pressures for reform were stronger.

The United States is no longer carrying the banner of freedom for oppressed people worldwide. Trump's corrupt regime, and isolationist creed, has destroyed America's standing in the international community.

For a more detailed insight into what's happened to America and the world, there's an organization that has been around for 13 years called, Freedom in the World.

Here's an article from their website: Democracy in Retreat.

The 'Joke' is on the GOP Who Are Afraid to Face Reality

Good Day World!

Jokers are big news lately.

The release of the movie "Joker" hyped with a storm of negative pre-press attention, managed to break several box office records.

It was a hit with the public in America, and Australia.

Meanwhile...jokers on the political front...

The latest defense for Trump's treasonous remarks asking China for help against his political rival Joe Biden, can be described as The Joker Defense.

Trump minion Marco Rubio (left) introduced the GOP's latest attempt to cover their corrupt leader by telling reporters Trump didn't really mean what he said.

He was joking, according to Rubio/aka The Penguin, who went on to spin how easy the liberal press is baited by Trump's jokes.

Ask yourself when was the last time you heard a Republican say Trump was just joking? Remember when Sarah Sanders favorite dodge was "He's joking," while she was Trump's talking head at the White House?

Watching Senator Roy Blunt, Congressman Jim Jordon, Senators Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham using the joke defense is a sign they've ran out of any real defensible arguments.

But what Trump did was no joke. 

Americans saw and heard him suggest Communist China look into a private American citizen's affairs for political gain. No amount of cover can conceal his treasonous appeal.

As Republicans scramble like a bunch of cockroaches exposed to the light, the wheels of impeachment are rolling along with more evidence against Trump in the Ukraine scandal.

Most Congressional Republicans are mainly staying silent on Trump's call to investigate Biden. It appears to be their best option, as evidence grows daily against Trump.

Here's what I know:

The joke is on the GOP who are afraid to face reality!

Impeachment: There's a Season for All Things

Good Day World!

Autumn leaves are glorifying landscapes from the East to the West coast; gathering in colorful carpets on forest floors where whispers of impeachment ride the winds of change.

A winter of discontent, like no other in American history, is sending shivers down the spines of common citizens struggling with issues like health care, and immigration reforms. 

Hopes for any helpful legislation are buried beneath a layer of polarizing rhetoric so toxic the nation is hopelessly divided. The government is crippled. An orange ape is sitting in the oval office shitting on every law of the land.

This apocalyptic winter is fraught with challenges, from increasingly severe temperatures because of global warming, to the sundering of a nation once united.

The bitter business of watching and hearing a president out of control is weighing heavily on the national soul. Consciences are colliding with the very real efforts of Trump to overthrow our democracy daily.

Brazen efforts to obstruct justice, and Trump's abuse of power, is causing showers of condemnation by a stricken nation seeking relief after nearly three years of chaos. 

Trump and his corrupt cronies stand in the eye of the storms ahead. How they weather them is up to popular opinion forcing senate Republicans to renounce his power grab. 

Polls show the appetite for impeachment is growing during this turbulent Autumn. The winter ahead promises to be a bitter one for Trump supporters. Impeachment is a certainty in the House.

The final battle will be in the Senate this winter, or possibly next spring. That's when we'll find out if we're a Republic, or a monarchy.

There's a season for all things. This Autumn it's impeachment.

Tucker Carlson Didn't Really Say That About Trump... Did he?

                                      Good Day World!

The rumor is true.

Tucker Carlson, Fox's talking head with no brain, dissed his master Trump in an op-ed! I know... it's shocking.

Is it a sign that even Trump's supporters are gradually slipping away and going back to their basements and hidey-holes? I'm not so sure.

So here's what the right-wing media star said, along with another headcase, Neil Patel (the co-founder of the Daily Caller), in an editorial published on 10/3/19:

"Donald Trump should not have been on the phone with a foreign head of state encouraging another country to investigate his political opponent, Joe Biden. Some Republicans are trying, but there's no way to spin this as a good idea.

And this: 

"Like a lot of things that Trump does, it was pretty over-the-top. Our leader's official actions should not be about politics. Those two things need to remain separate. Once those in control of our government use it to advance their political goals, we become just another of the world's many corrupt countries. America is better than that."  

How about that?

Does this op-ed mean there's trouble in Trump propaganda land? Is a number one minion jumping ship? I don't think so. It could be a new tactic to defend our liar-in-chief, according to one political analyst;

NBC's, Benjy Sarlin, thinks the op-ed was a "...pretty massive signal to pivot away from defending the behavior (which has been a brutal slog so far for those who've tried) and instead toward arguing impeachment goes too far."

Still, I'm surprised. I never seen a political hack of Carlson's ilk say something sane... (and dare I say truthful?), even for a few sentences.

I know Carlson will continue to carry Trump's bucket of piss. He's got viewers to please and propaganda to spread. 

I think we can properly conclude Carlson's sudden foray into truth-telling was just a mirage in a desert of deceit.

Americans Are Unwilling Participants in Trump's Reality Show

Good Day World!

I don't want to be in Trump's reality show.

I suspect millions of Americans feel the same way.

Our nation is facing widespread corruption by a lying egomaniac. Open corruption with impunity by a wannabe dictator who is defying everything America stands for.

His deluded base thought (and many still do) that Trump is draining an allegorical swamp. The rest of the world isn't drinking that Kool aid.

A majority of Americans are now for Impeachment after just two weeks of revelations describing Trump's underhanded dealing with foreign countries. They're tired of Trump's shitshow.

This moment in history, where Americans are once again looking at getting rid of an elected president, is a result of Trump's reality show since slithering into office. 

His supporters are more than glad to live in the current alternate universe Trump has created. That includes the Republican Party which is enabling this travesty of an administration.

Republican senators who normally would side with America against Communist China, are looking the other way as Trump openly colludes with our longtime communist foe, asking for dirt on his political opponents.

I hate the fact that Trump has pulled me into his alternate universe where I have no choice but to call the president of the United States a traitor.

I hate the fact that the world is watching the chaos Trump has created with trepidation. Countries are worrying they may suddenly incur Trump's wrath and be hit with unjustified tariffs.

For those of us who live in the real world, the last three years have been exhausting, and discouraging, watching the guard rails of democracy collapse under Trump's relentless assaults on our Constitution.

Like it or not, we are in an impeachment mode based upon the urgent need to stop a runaway president from selling out our country.

Pence's Penance: Repent and Hope America Forgives Him

Good Day World!

Vice President Mike Pence was once a godly man by some accounts, before he signed up with the devil Trump.

The way the story goes Pence was walking along a road with a few right-wing pals when a vision of Trump on a cloud of smog appeared before the startled conservatives.

Just the day before the infamous Hollywood Access tapes were released, and minions in Trump's orbit were panicking about Trump bragging about grabbing "pussy's." 

That night, Pence and his wife prayed about what to do. Should he support the son of Satan, and thus achieve great power on earth as the second most powerful man on the planet? Or, what?

The next morning, after praying again, Pence went out to seek The Donald to pledge his undying allegiance. The rest is history.

Today Pence is on the precipice of political ruin because of his association with Trump. Like everyone around him at some point, Pence will become political fodder for the maniac in the Oval Office.

Breaking story from Business Insider... Trump used Pence to tell the Ukraine the U.S. would withhold military aid while demanding that it investigate corruption

Related: Pence Defends Trump Ukraine Call

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Pence's troubles are just beginning. 

His credibility, and career as Trump's henchman, are going to leave him with the mark of the devil... Donald J. Trump. As everyone knows, when you dance with the devil you have to pay the price.

New Program this Fall Promises to be a Hit - Impeachment TV

Good Day World!

I'm running out of popcorn!

The impeachment drama starring Trump is only in it's second week, and I'm on the last bag of my popcorn stash for the entire year. 

What's happened, is I've increased my popcorn consumption recently while watching Trump trying to drag down every segment of our government into his swamp.

I'm going to have to re-stock my popcorn supply at a lousy time because of Trump's stupid tariffs, that are now officially pissing people off.

I've witnessed some of the greatest political dramas of all time, from the impeachments of Nixon and Clinton, to the Iran-Contra scandal under George Herbert Bush's watch.

But the impeachment of Trump is on entirely different level. It's the Super Bowl of Scandals. A lot like watching a sporting event on TV, and hoping the home team wins.

What a glorious political spectacle for this Fall's lineup of TV watching. An ex-reality TV star overreaches his performance as the president of the United States, and is now being indicted for his corruption.

Variations of Trump vs America videos will jump from the mainstream media outlets into the morass of the Internet, where reality can be twisted into an illusion perpetrated by trolls with no souls.

No one knows how this drama is going to end. Will Trump waddle into 2020 still our president, seeking re-election?

Will Mike Pence be our next president? Or, will Mike Pence be impeached too? 

Are we going to start the New Year off with a woman president - Nancy Pelosi - steering the ship-of-state into a general election?

Stay tuned.

Another Whistleblower Emerges: Claims Misconduct in Presidential Audit Program

                                      Good Day World!

In Trump's world there are "dog whistles," and whistleblowers.

Sending subliminal messages to his restless base is one of Trump's super con man powers. It just takes key words. He likes dog whistles because they're very effective with racists, white supremacists, and uneducated people. 

In other words, the majority of his base.

As for whistleblowers, Trump loathes them with a mob mentality that calls for execution. Truth is his garlic, or cross, that threatens his very existence. 

Americans have been following the growing Ukraine whistleblower scandal numbly. Some are starting to react after a week, as evidenced in the rising numbers for impeachment proceedings in the polls.

There's a feeling in the air in Washington, according to aging pundits, "very reminiscent of Watergate," and the fall of Tricky Dick. 

Another whistleblower has surfaced claiming misconduct in a Presidential Audit Program that happened months ago.

Here's the August 21, 2019 article on an alleged coverup in the IRS. This story has been simmering in the background of the Ukraine scandal, and is finally getting a renewed look.

I won't be surprised to see even more whistleblowers despite Trump's threatening reaction to the Ukraine whistleblower's allegations. He's openly trying to intimidate witnesses and Congress is not going to stand aside and let him get away with it.

As Trump's presidency careens down the toilet, he's coming to a reckoning in his life... for the first time. 

The consequences of a life of lies and greed are going to be terrible, and humiliating. Especially, for the biggest egomaniac on the planet.

New National Pastime: Counting World Leaders Trump Has Bullied, or Colluded With

Good Day World!

By jerking the Ukraine's new leader around like a rag doll for political reasons, Trump's proven he's lawless, and brazen. 

Even more interesting, we're discovering Trump's foreign policy is nothing more than an extortion machine on steroids.

News that another leader has been taking shit from Don the Con broke yesterday, when it was disclosed Australia's Prime Minister was pressured by Trump to help AG Barr with his mission to look for dirt on the origin of the Russia probe.

Both his call to the Ukraine, and Australia, demonstrated how much Hilliary Clinton still lives in Trump's birdbrain, and how much he fears his most likely Democratic opponent Joe Biden.

It should be interesting in the days ahead as we hear about Trump's telephone conversations with Putin, and bin Salman, that are reputed to be on a super secure server.

Don't be surprised however, if there's been other world leaders that Trump has bullied, or colluded with in just less than three years.

I've been scouting the internet looking for on-line betting parlors that might give odds on the next world leader whose name surfaces in connection with Trump's corruption.

I doubt if I would take any odds on Kim, or Xi however. They would be the next two most obvious of Trump's favorite dictators.

There's a lot of other world leaders that Trump has slimed on out there. Guessing whose next is rapidly becoming a national pastime.

BTY: Give me fair odds, and I'll bet Turkey's dictator Erdogan is on the list.

If you're interested in betting if Trump will be impeached in his first term this website has all you need to know if you want to bet your dough! 

Better get on it quick, because the odds of impeachment went up to 71 percent this week!

Clear and Present Danger: A Rogue POTUS Threatens America's Security

Good Day World!

To set the plate this second week of impeachment proceedings against our pathetic POTUS, I highly recommend reading George Clancy's novel - A Clear and Present Danger.

The movie adaptation came out in 1994.

Fiction, however, has trumped Clancy's wild imagination as Trump's administration has been caught red-handed protecting Trump, after he sought political dirt on former vice president, Joe Biden.

This is real world; The president of the United States was caught bullying our ally Ukraine to dig up dirt on Trump's main political opponent for the 2020 election.

But Trump didn't conspire alone. 

We're starting to find out the identities of some of his key conspirators. Trump's attack dog Rudy Giuliani leads the pack. 

Attorney General, William Barr, Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and vice president, Mike Pence, are intertwined in the conspiracy to intimidate Ukraine's leader. 

It's just the tip of the iceberg. Watch what happens this week. The majority of Americans say an impeachment inquiry into Trump is necessary, according to CBS poll yesterday.

Those numbers are mounting after just one week of Trump and minions being exposed by a whistleblower, and the country being informed of what was happening.

Critics say things are happening too fast. I'd say they're not happening fast enough. This is a matter of our nation's security. 

"Urgent and credible," we must not forget the whistleblower's warning. Why should we wait for more crimes to unfold before our eyes in real time?

There's a new Trump train rattling down the tracks to impeachment, and I'm betting more Americans get aboard before the articles of impeachment are formally voted on in The House.

Not even the great thriller writer, Tom Clancy, could have come up with a bigger shocker than this near fall of American democracy.

Trolls for Trump: Hunt for Whistleblower to Discredit is Top Priority

                                      Good Day World!

The same trolls that crawled out from beneath their rocks in 2016 election (with Russia's help) to promote Trump are on the offensive again.

The movement to impeach Trump is on steroids right now, and his supporters, big and small, are panicking. The far right corners of the Internet have launched a wanted poster for the mysterious whistleblower whose threatening the Trump regime.

Moving on...

Here's a guide to sort through the shitstorm of false claims by Trump and his minions.

It's looking like Trump's ruthless attacks against everyone may come back to haunt him.

Here's video summation of the four phases of impeachment.

Not so fun fact: Every day Trump remains in office, America's security is at risk!

What to watch for in the next week:

Another scandal involving the NRA and Russian. A report details that the NRA lied about a 2015 Delegation trip to Moscow. The NRA agreed to provide access to American politicians in return for Russian business!
