The Red-Faced Man

The little red-faced man yelled as he slid down the hill

He yelled, and he lied

He said it was just an act

Except when it wasn’t

Like when he uses the grief of the parents of the dead children

It’s not when he scares his followers into keeping weapons handy

Always hiding behind the word of the law, he sacrifices its spirit like a roach under his boot

And as he slides down the hill, his face gets redder and he gets more desperate

Lordy, I hope there are tapes

One of the things I spend way too much time wondering about is how can Trump’s supporters keep themselves talked into staying a supporter in the face of everything he says and does himself. Let alone what he blames on his imaginary Deep State.

When Comey got axed, Trump suggested there might be audio recordings to prove his side of events. Aside from being one of the most staggering displays of tone-deafness by a sitting U.S. President (I mean, when has a President who secretly tapes his staff ever been a problem?!) But even then, the suggestion was that Trump had taped people, not the other way around.

I mean, what does it say that, of the two people we know of who have recorded Donald Trump are:

1. Michael Cohen, Trump’s fixer and consigliere. The guy who knows where all the bodies are buried. The one who probably knows Trump the best, what he’s capable of. This lawyer taped his boss and client. What unique circumstances might have been present for a lawyer to perform such an act that could lead to his immediate disbarment? What would trigger that kind of self-defensive/destructive action?

2. And then here is Omarosa, his Apprentice doppelgänger. That’s right, the woman who defined “reality show villain”, became a confidante to Trump, and he too must have felt a similar connection since he took her under his wing. So why would a calculating, manipulative, reality TV star feels she needs to secretly record the staff of the White House, and possibly even the President? Especially since you are automatically cast in a dark light yourself by recording people in stealth like this. What was she hoping to show?

And in the president’s Twitter seizure afterwards, he insults HER intelligence as an employee. One that he hired! Friends or not, these jobs are too important to hand out like soccer camp flyers. Either this White House cares more about paying back favors for friends than they do about hiring a Senior White House Advisor who is qualified, or they really don’t know how to screen people.

If you have dismissed enough “rank and file” WH employees because you don’t trust them unless they are from your inner circle, then how do you expect anyone to make sure that things are being screened according to the hugest security protocols?

And so, the outgoing Deep State employees are not the who’ve been revealed to have secretly taped the President… it’s his own ‘trusted’ inner circle! Even he doesn’t refute that, and yet… the blame is still falling on his enemies! How?!

Conspiracies and shadow groups are now the official opponents of the Republican Party. It’s true. At this point most of the things they are openly arguing for in the light of day, are predicated on conspiracies themselves. And the thing is, it doesn’t matter how convincing you are, you can not argue against a conspiracy. Since it contains no facts, it can (and will) always morph and adapt to fit the cause.

That’s exactly what’s happening now. America is no longer worshipping facts and reason. Instead, large parts of America are now worshipping victimhood status, and adapting these old crazy classics to cover them with, like a new throw pillow.

Feeling like there’s a shadowy government group running things? No problem! Let’s just dust off this old Illuminati story…

Need help convincing yourself that things don’t make sense? Convinced that there’s an underground pedophile ring that only Donald Trump can expose?! Enter “Q”, where Donald Trump is a super hero who has been tasked with taking down a secret worldwide cabal of pedophiles… and really not skeezing on his own daughter.

You can’t make this stuff up! Actually… you can. That’s why it’s not real.

All of these conspiracies arise out of the ashes of people’s crumbling dreams. When you are unable to accept the harsh reality that your persecution of the world no longer fits the stuff you are living and seeing, the ego come forth to say you must look elsewhere, anywhere. The pliability of conspiracy theories means that one size truly can fit all.

But the goal never changes. The conspiracy theory ultimately serves one purpose. In the end it is a self-justifying excuse to perform the extreme acts you already have every intention of performing. And that is exactly why this is so dangerous.

Trump pulls security clearance from ex-CIA Director, John Brennan

That’s just the headline, but it says it all. Heres the fact from that headline, though. All Donald Trump has succeeded in doing today is making America a little less safe.

Brennan doesn’t get any personal benefit from having that clearance. One of Trump’s more glaring problems is that he thinks that everyone thinks like him. He has convinced himself that he has punished Brennan by keeping him from seeing our juicy government secrets. But instead, when something happens to America that John Brennan may have been able to help out country with and consult on, we have just lost the benefit of this man’s knowledge and expertise. All because he criticized the President of the United States. Something every citizen of this country should do at least once in their life… or per week.

Trump just cut off his nose, despite his asshole of a mouth.

Space Station 3-D Printer Builds Ratchet Wrench

THIS!!!

This is why we have science and technology, and math, and shit that makes your cell phone work. The earth isn’t 5,000 years old, you navel-gazing, closed-minded, backward-assed, lost in the wilderness of Bible knowledge, fundamentalist motherfuckers.

The International Space Station’s 3-D printer completed the first phase of a NASA technology demonstration by printing a ratchet wrench.

Make ‘Em Deader

Fentanyl can kill faster than a politician can steal

Nebraska is now using fentanyl as an execution drug.

This means someone was reading the news and noticed how many people are dropping like flies across the country from accidental fentanyl overdoses. And then someone had an epiphany, that went something like this, “Hey! We’ve been trying to kill some people more efficiently than we have been. Maybe we should learn from the opioid epidemic on how to best make ’em dead faster!”

Congratulations America.

Trust Us

Paul Manafort appears to have had some money problems. He had them on the actual day he left the Trump campaign, no less. In fact, the first thing he did after leaving the campaign was to suddenly apply for tens of millions of dollars in personal loans… in exchange for a promised position of political power.

And of course now we know that he was also having money troubles before he was Trump’s campaign manager too.

But amazingly, in between those two time periods, he volunteered to run Donald Trump’s presidential campaign… for free!

Interesting.

During this time, Trump’s attitude regarding Russia, and specifically Vladimir Putin, visibly changes. A short time later it metastasized onto the RNC’s official platform.

Oh! And at the same time as all of this, a Russian oligarch is suing him for $10,000,000 in open court.

Oh, and apparently years ago, he and Trump were supposed to split Yankees season tickets. But really, they barely know each other.

And we’re all okay with this?

Where to start? …Let’s see:

  • As always, the label ‘fake news’ is only applied to things he doesn’t like or agree with, even though, at this point is almost universally being reported on by all news outlets.
  • He appears to have worded it in a way that tells us the meeting was initiated and controlled by Don Jr., since he is the one who ‘had’ it.
  • His labeling of his son as ‘wonderful’, and the constant concern about his kids getting into trouble that he also displays, tells me that maybe we should have some nepotism laws so our president can concentrate on the other 324,999,999 people in the country he is supposed to show interest in.
  • While there are a whole lot of reasons why it’s probably not okay to have another country help you get elected, it’s even worse if your president, whom is sworn to uphold the laws of our country, instead spends all of his energy looking for loopholes in them instead.
  • It seem to me that politicians should only be allowed to campaign on what they themselves are going to do for their constituents, and how they will achieve it. Not about how horrible everyone else is. Can you imagine if we had to choose everything else in our lives this way?: “Don’t buy Pepsi~Cola. They keep changing their formula… What’s else aren’t they telling us?! — {We’re Coca~Cola, and we approve of this message}

Ask yourself this, if you owned your own business and an employee spent all of their time avoiding work blaming others like this, would you just let it continue without any consequences?

Bernie Sanders thanks the Koch brothers for helping him make the argument for ‘Medicare for all’

As funny as I find this entire story, let’s face it, healthcare in America should be treated like the criminal conspiracy that it is.

Don’t agree? Then by all means, please explain to me why helping other human beings stay alive and healthy should be monetized.

For example, despite the actual wording in these statements, tell me how these two situations actually differ:

1. “If you ever want to see your child again, you must pay $10,000 in small unmarked bills.”

2. “I’m sorry ma’am, but your son has a serious health issue that is fatal if not treated properly. However, it appears as though you have not hit your insurance copay limit, so this would cost you about $10,000 out of pocket… and it’s your only option.”
