The Bush's Sacred Cow

No Kidding
Good Grief. the witch is dead.
I am guessing there will be wall to wall coverage, on a slow news day about this vile woman.
She gave birth to a lying war criminal, who put the W in WMD's. What an absolute travesty this country is, worshiping these people.
Such an unpleasant human being.
Telling people about  Hurricane Katrina victims being "underprivileged anyway" and living in arena's during Hurricane Katrina is "working very well for them"
Let them eat cake right Barbara?
I can't imagine how different this country would be without this family.
Especially her dimwitted, dry drunk, hyper-religious son, who led us into a war, based on nothing but lies.
No one ever mentions that.
 If it wasn't for Bush, there would be no Trump.

"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron." H.L. Mencken 

Read it and weep, because this is where we are,  thanks to the Bush's and their special brand of morons.
These sacred cows that no one seems to have a bad thing to say about.
 Thank God I don't have a TV, so I wont be subjected to a barrage of homage to this out of touch wife to an ass grabber.
About the only person who has anything negative to say about old Bab's is Trump's buddy Roger Stone, who called her a "nasty drunk."
He's no prize either, but from what I have read, he's probably right on target.
I don't know what it is here in the good old rugged individualist USA, that makes American's delusional over this family.
There seems to be a lack of context or amnesia, about how this family operates. There's going to be a whole lot of people coming out of the woodwork trying to convince us how great Barbara Bush was.
So I'll just leave you with this. Do you feel freer & safer because of  George Bush?
(Doesn't matter which one)

Fox and Trump's Friends

On this most sacred day of the year, Tax Day, just look at what our taxes are paying for!
Bombs dropped on Syria, (such a coincidence! while former FBI head Comey, comes out with a tell all book)
 And now we have a truth bomb!
At a Federal Court, Michael Cohen admitted his third client was Sean Hannity.
Gasps were heard in the court room, but really, who could even be surprised?
Hannity has denied ever being Cohen's client. So who's lying?
Hannity claims he only asked Cohen about real estate advice. Riiiiiight.
Michael Cohen has three clients; Trump, the former RNC chair, Elliot Broidy, who paid $1.6 million to a playboy playmate, arranged by Cohen.
 But Hannity just needed advice to figure out his real estate.
Funny, how Cohen gave Stormy Daniels $130,000 to silence her and get an NDA. So, I wondered, if that was really what Hannity and Cohen discussed in a lawyer client, non-client conversation not invoiced.
Hannity has had sexual harassment allegations of his own.
 It was about a year ago a political commentator named Debby Schlussel said after refusing to go back to Sean Hannity's hotel room, she said she found Hannity's behavior "creepy" and she was never asked on Fox News again. (Personally, I would be relieved)
She also accused Hannity, of scamming his viewers and asking for donations, for his "Freedom Alliance" charity. Schlussel, made allegations that he was funding private transportation for his family from donations, which Hannity denied.
Now that we got the Hannity bombshell, does anyone even remember we just bombed Syria?
"Mission Accomplished!"
Again? What mission? What did we accomplish? Unbelievably weird and creepy that Trump would quote Bush, and his false WMD excuse to set the Middle East on fire.
The cost of the "airstrike"?
Since I guess that's the euphemism for bombing people.
 $240 million.
A week in office and Bloodthirsty Bolton ticks another bombing off his list it's Syria now and we know what country is next; Iran.
This is what I am looking at for May.
We have two potential foreign policy debacles.
The first being North Korea. Trump agreed to a meeting with Kim Jong Un, brokered by South Korean envoys. This happened while former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was in Africa, if you recall. This may turn into nothing and just go away.
The next will be the "Iran Deal" Trump is now surrounded by hawk advisers Pompeo and Bolton. I am not real hopeful about anything here, remotely peaceful or diplomatic. Trump threw that out the window a long time ago. Sen. Bob Corker  has predicted that Trump will distance himself from the Iran deal. The reason may be that Iran has already threatened to pull out if it is not in their economic favor.
Also I was just checking out Craigs List, in DC. Looks like someone might need a lawyer, or is that Fake News?

The Storm In The Swamp

Yesterday, I was talking to my friend Sean. He's in the Army National Guard, rabid Trump supporter. So, he told me. he thought Trump was crazy.
Let that sink in.
I said, "Why did you vote for him then?"
He replied "Because, I didn't want her" (that's some choice, Trump or "her")
Trump just didn't suddenly start acting crazy. He's just in a fishbowl now, so it's more visible.
 The people like my friend Sean, who voted for Trump, could easily be triggered by something on Facebook. He calls it the "morning paper."
So, today, Mark Zuckerberg's going to do some kind of apologist act and slink back to his Hawaiian hidey hole behind his own giant wall. It's just a show, it's just business.
Yesterday, the FBI special prosecutor, secured a search warrant and raided Trump's friend, confident or lawyer's office. Because there may have been some illegal activity, especially when it comes to Trump's affair and Cohen's $130,000 pay off to porn star, sex worker? Stormy Daniels.
I am not saying Trump is the first to conduct himself like this.
What I am saying, is there has been nothing but chaos since he got in office.
Where you find chaos you find mental illness.
I always say, it's actions you have to look at.
We are under the power of a grandstanding grand poobah, threatening war, bombs and sometimes carrying out those threats.
In countries that are powerless to hit back at us. So much winning.
Trump continues on with the same scenario, that Obama and Bush before him maintained.
Nothing new there.
North Korea, well nothing new there either. It's nothing but an embarrassment. We should be well away from there and the Middle East, but got to keep the war machine going, thanks to the new so-called budget that got passed.

If things don't pan out for Trump, I expect more war, not that it's ever stopped.
We already deployed warships to the Mediterranean, equipped with cruise missiles, to fight a proxy war with Russia in Syria.
It will be based around another supposed chemical attack, like the "red line" attack in 2013. Then again, in 2014, then another in 2017, in April, almost exactly a year ago. I find it very hard to believe that Trump puts out that we are leaving Syria days ago, and now we are all in.
With yet another chemical attack.
Anything to distract from the Special Prosecutor.
Now Trump's Homeland Security adviser, Tom Bossart has resigned, rumor has it, he's no friend of warmonger Bolton. But Bolton will continue on with the Neocon war plan since 9/11 of Iraq and all the other Middle Eastern countries on the list that General Wesley Clark said he saw;

What really sucks after seven years of blogging about the corruption, the lies, the false flags.
 It just falls on deaf ears, tuned into CNN or Fox News or whatever the TV is telling people to believe.
My friend Sean believes it all. His biggest goal is to get a deployment. He just may.
This country depends on war, for TV viewers and ratings, for the MIC, for people like Sean, who's only hope to make halfway decent money is a deployment.
We have a psychopath in charge of this country, (nothing new there) he has no problem causing chaos to distract us, and the swamp will do anything to keep from being drained.

Pink Hats, Protests, and Why No Lives Matter

So, the March For Our Lives is over, and honestly, it probably will have about as much of an effect as the Macy's Day Parade on Thanksgiving.
We've had the Women's March with those ridiculous hats.
 We've had a March For Climate Change, which did nothing, since Trump cancelled the Paris Climate Change agreement.
All these marches are, is a spectacle for TV ratings. They do nothing.
I have seen arguments about whether Emma Gonzalez actually ripped up the Constitution, or whether David Hogg was
Did she or didn't she? 
actually at the school when the Parkland shooting happened.
We need more gun control, but, it will never happen.
What's really weird is you don't see anyone in the streets protesting about Nuking North Korea or bombing Syria or Yemen.
 All of that is ok, I guess.
We will bomb children going to school halfway around the world, then we get mad when someone starts killing American children, then there will be a big march.
We had Occupy Wall Street, protesting against corporate power and inequality. We had Black Lives Matter and police still kill with impunity.
People have every right to march and protest, but it's like a flash mob, here and gone, then the government quietly gets back to what it's doing and doesn't miss a beat.
Petitions will be signed, protests will happen, however, our institutionalized system  is impervious to change.
May Day Protest, 1971
Unlike the arrests that happened during the Vietnam protests, which were in the thousands,
No arrests were made in this state sanctioned protest.
 This tells me everything I need to know about what probably won't happen.
In order for society to change we have to be willing to live by the rules of a society people want to create.
 As far as I can see, that choice has been taken away by a corporatocracy and a MSM owned by said corporatocracy.
Propaganda and fear porn will keep people stuck in front of a TV, believing everything they see, that our overlords tell us is true.
Including, marches, that the MSM media will exploit for ratings, keeping "reporters" or TV personalities busy and employed, which will bring no change.
This March For Our Lives, will become co-opted into a non-profit.
Employing people with donations.
 People think this new non-profit March For Our Lives might have some kind of influence on gun control. So far, the only thing I could find was some legislation about the amount of ammunition you can buy. which has already happened in California.
We live under an increasingly absurd and ridiculous administration.
When you have a porn actress who probably slept with the president, all over the news like a reality show, then the president investigates his own son-in-law for taking more than $500 million in bribes, does anyone really think  March For Our Lives is going to matter, when Trump has his next tantrum and starts poking at North Korea or Russia?
There will be the next distraction and the next, an investigation, or another bizarre attack somewhere.
Hate to say it, but this march will probably go the way of the pink hats.

Book Of Faces

Isn't this what they did in the Roman Coliseum Days?
I've been working on a pretty massive painting, and I have other projects going on, it's been a  busy winter. Which has kept me from being on social media.
After reading about Cambridge Analytica, I'm glad.
Most people who read this blog, know I don't vote.
I don't participate in a system that gives you the likes of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, then your told to hold your nose and pull a lever.
Nope. I've got better things to do.
We've been told that Russia interfered with our election, now we're told Facebook did too, via Steve Bannon and the Mercers.
We've been data mined and Russia hacked our election.
So, if all this is true, why do we have an NSA?
 I mean do they just spy on Americans?
Aren't they supposed to be protecting us from these situations?
What about Homeland Security?
Mark Zuckerberg is even warning that "someone is meddling with upcoming midterm elections"
Oh, I'll just bet.
Mark Zuckerberg sold everyone out a long time ago.
 Facebook made billions from giving app developers access to Facebook's data base.
 It's a tool used by local law enforcement, the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, Homeland Security.
There's no privacy settings on there, it's crazy anyone would believe it.
It's all just a big "mistake" that your information got hacked and tracked and God knows what all.
Seriously, with all the data collecting the NSA does on a daily basis, I doubt Americans know or even care that they basically have no privacy on the internet.
We have been conditioned to accept this kind of intrusion.
In other words, we've all been hacked.
Don't even for a minute believe that the Trump campaign via Cambridge Analytica was the first to use this technique, because the Obama campaigns did it too. I say campaigns because the article says, Facebook was used for the first time for political purposes in 2012, but who knows how long it's been going on?
Probably as soon as Facebook was introduced on the internet.
"Facebook is now ubiquitous," says the digital analyst from Google who joined the Obama campaign in 2008, "Whichever candidate uses Facebook the most effectively could win the war."
 There you have it.
While we are liking on Facebook, what is going on behind us?
Tomorrow congress has to pass a spending bill to stop yet another government shutdown. If they pass it, we won't have to worry again until Sept 30th! Yipee! Can't these lazy bastards fund anything for more than 6 months? Oh wait a minute, yes they can! The military war machine! That will never shut down. Military spending will increase by $160 BILLION.
Thank God, because I was really worried we wouldn't have enough drones or bombs.
Drones are Trumps big jobs program, he thinks it's a good idea to push lethal drones, so he's going to relax the "rules" about who we sell them too.
Like we've got any moral high ground when it comes to killing people, what "rules"?
It's a really great feeling knowing Trump is Making America Great Again, with drones and tweets.
 Like him on Facebook.

How Does It Feel?

The memo has been outed!
What have we learned about the Secret Society?
Is the memo inaccurate? Does it even matter?
It matters if this memo, will be used by Trump to fire Rosenstein and Mueller.
 I suspect that's what the whole thing is for. But, I digress.
Corrupt politicians on both sides-both parties, were busy passing the FISA Act to spy on us all, while they sat on this memo.
 No mention of all these awful abuses until Trump signed the FISA Act. So, what we know is that it's ok for everyone else to be spied on.
McCain came out and says this memo serves Putin, and outright says Russia interfered in our election.
 I can only guess that since Nunes got the memo out, now the gloves are off and McCain is pissed.
But he didn't open his mouth before this and voted for that FISA Bill and expanded the powers of the surveillance state.
That much is clear.
All this is, is a political stunt to help Trump, they do not care about helping us.
They don't care about national security, it is their own security they are worried about.
As long as the government has the power to spy on us, we are all being abused.
Guess what?
Even with all this spying it's looking as if Russia got away with this interference, so what's the use of all this? Joe Blow down the street ain't talking to Putin, but it's looking like Trump did and there's a big investigation.
How does it feel to be spied on Trump?
The sponsor of the FISA Reauthorisation Act was none other than Devin Nunes.
Are we supposed to think he gives a damn about people getting spied on and government abuse of taxpayers when he knew all along about this alleged abuse?
None of them care, least of all him.
"A lot of people should be ashamed"
But you aren't are you Trump?
You might as well have signed your own FISA Warrant.
How does it feel?

Friday Night Memo Massacre

Oh, of course, it's going to be the Friday memo release.
This way, Trump is hoping it's all going away over the weekend.
 After a week of Secret Societies, the Grand Inquisitor, Secret Society-Grand Poobah, Trey Gowdy, decides he's not going to go for re-election.
Uh-huh.
He is the 37th GOPer not to seek re-election.
So, Trump has kicked the memo back to Congress and it looks like it's going to be read at a pro forma session at 4:30 Friday afternoon.
The real question is why didn't Trump just release it himself?
Could it be that it's all a "dud"? Oh say it ain't so!
According to Adam Schiff the memo, could even be secretly altered....
I am sure Melania knows all about what you deliver from the heart. 
After lying about his SOTU ratings, now we're supposed to believe his bigly memo is yuuuuge.
There's more;
Russiagate Rick Gates, who was indicted on conspiracy charges, the same time as Paul Manafort,  Gates lawyers just dumped him. My guess is he's flipped and turned states evidence.
Just another week of chaos, here in the good old USA.
Home of the greedy and afraid.
I am guessing very afraid, since Hope Hicks allegedly told Trump that Donny Jr's emails will "never get out" Ooops that's obstruction!
While we weren't looking Trump took away the enforcement power of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, so there will be no more enforcement or oversight over companies that take advantage of American consumers.
But who would even notice after the sh*t show we've witnessed this week?
That doesn't even include the train full of garbage GOP politicians that hit a garbage truck, this week, killing the driver. RIP dude. His name was Chris Foley, he was 28 years old.
