Trump World 2/9 and 2/10

  Members of the Trump administration appear to be unable to apologize for anything they do.  So, when Kellyanne Conway talks about the Bowling Green Massacre that never happened and then calls it misspeaking after doing it multiple times, you don’t believe her. When Sean Spicer talks about a terror attack in Atlanta, 3 times, even though one never happened, you don’t believe him when he claims he was obviously talking about Orlando. After Nordstrom…

Trump and China?

If you’ll recall, Trump made waves after the election when he openly embraced Taiwan and said he might recognize them. Apparently, this caused a row and China refused to talk to Trump primarily because of these two tweets. The President of Taiwan CALLED ME today to wish me congratulations on winning the Presidency. Thank you! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 3, 2016 Interesting how the U.S. sells Taiwan billions of dollars of military equipment…

Michael Flynn should probably hire a lawyer…

National security adviser Michael Flynn privately discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with that country’s ambassador to the United States during the month before President Trump took office, contrary to public assertions by Trump officials, current and former U.S. officials said. Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were interpreted by some senior U.S. officials as an inappropriate and potentially illegal signal to the Kremlin that it could expect a reprieve from sanctions that were being…

Adventures in Evil: Steve Bannon

There are a slow trickle of news stories out there showing the unbridled insanity of Steve Bannon, former right wing tabloid CEO turned White House Chief Strategist. Bannon, who’s now ensconced in the West Wing as President Donald Trump’s closest adviser, has been portrayed as Trump’s main ideas guy. But in interviews, speeches and writing — and especially in his embrace of Strauss and Howe — he has made clear that he is, first and foremost,…

A day in the life of An American Madman 2-7-17

As we already know, Donald Trump is an incredibly vain short-fingered vulgarian. Trump’s history of womanizing and reports of him interviewing based more on looks are out there.  As a fascist, he wants the optics of every move he makes to be absolutely perfect. Essentially, he needs to be able to effectively spew propaganda. Doing that requires a media friendly Propaganda Minister, or Press Secretary. Sean Spicer is a failure as press secretary. He has…

Say NO to Devos

Betsy Devos was not Donald Trump’s first pick. His first pick was Jerry Falwell Jr, president of Liberty University and religious fundamentalist. I’m sure the result was always going to be to disband the department of Education, so these are the abysmal choices we had.   Betsy Devos has an interesting history. Her father Edgar was one of the financiers of the Family Research Council. He also was Vice President of the Far right group,…
