The Known Knowns of a Known War Criminal

It’s always magical to be able to throw an asshole’s words back in his face… especially when he is an outspoken representative of so many other assholes.

While no one condones looting, on the other hand, one can understand the pent-up feelings that may result from decades of repression and people who have had members of their family killed by that regime, for them to be taking their feelings out on that regime,” he said. “And I don’t think there’s anyone in any of those pictures … (who wouldn’t) accept it as part of the price of getting from a repressed regime to freedom.

We’re doing just fine on our own, thank you very much…

The Russian government has stepped up efforts to inflame racial tensions in the United States as part of its bid to influence November’s presidential election, including trying to incite violence by white supremacist groups and to stoke anger among African-Americans, according to seven American officials briefed on recent intelligence.

Happy Thoughts

Trump loves the hate and violence because it is both in his nature and he knows he benefits from it for several horrifying reasons:

– It fires up his racist base.

– A fired-up racist base increases the chance for more hate crimes and violent protests in response.

– If the hate crimes (which more than likely are/will be strategic in nature) and violent protests as a response continue, this, along with the stronger reemergence of Covid-19 in the fall, will allow him cover for declaring martial law.

– Once martial law is declared, even though the constitutionality of it is thin, he will postpone the election.

“Mark my words, I think he is gonna try to kick back the election somehow — come up with some rationale why it can’t be held,” Biden said, according to a pool report from CBS’ Bo Erickson.

An Autocratic Oath

Autocratic wannabes like cult daddy donny and his suckling sycophantic cultist stooges (try saying that 10 times fast: suckling sycophantic cultist stooges suckling sycophantic cultist stooges suckling sycophantic cultist stooges suckling sycophantic cultist stooges suckling sycophantic cultist stooges suckling sycophantic cultist stooges suckling sycophantic cultist stooges suckling sycophantic cultist stooges suckling sycophantic cultist stooges suckling sycophantic cultist stooges – yes, my mind’s balance is another victim of trump’s relentlessly viral insanity) will do anything, ANYTHING, to repress dissent and retain power…

Smearing mail-in voting, which I took advantage of successfully for 20 years in the military when stationed overseas, is just the beginning.

[The White House Press Secretary, a Tampa native] has voted by mail in every Florida election she has participated in since 2010, according to a Tampa Bay Times review of her voting history. Most recently, she voted by mail in the state’s March 2020 presidential primary, just as Trump did after he made Florida his new permanent home.

Killing in the Name

Waiting for the trump statement to be released declaring the Minneapolis cops who murdered George Floyd to be good people…

Mr. Floyd died after being handcuffed and pinned to the ground by an officer’s knee, in an episode that was recorded on video by a bystander, inciting condemnation and protests.

President Donald Trump seemed to encourage police to be more violent in handling potential offenders during a speech to law enforcement officers today.

“Please don’t be too nice,” he said to the audience in Long Island, New York.

Idiots are Contagious

Not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but…

We’re doomed.

Georgia officials have apologized and corrected what was described as a “processing error” that wrongly showed a downward trend in the number of new daily infections in the state, making it appear as if new infections had dropped every day for two weeks. The error was at least the third in three weeks, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Gotta wonder how many of these genius, live-free-of-masks-or-die-trying Memorial Day revelers will soon be having their own personal memorial day in honor of them…

The next victim to soon be purged by cult daddy donny for speaking truth to power a nimrod.

Color Me Baffled

How anyone could support trump baffles me, but his support from service members especially so considering the cowardly way he avoided military service, the disgusting way he treated war heroes, and the way he is so obviously under the influence of a Cold War KGB thug like Putin.

Thankfully, it looks like that support is finally dissipating…

Fingers crossed 🤞🏻

I guess it’s okay because it rhymes?

A protester at an Open New York rally last week that was praised by President Trump held up a sign reading “Hang Fauci, Hang Gates.” – The Hill, May 18, 2020

Come on, trumpists, how bonkers mad does our so-called president have to be before you realize he isn’t mentally fit?

Because you support him when he encourages such violence and murder is why you are looked down upon by the majority of our society.

You are the problem more than our dangerously insane* president.

You are the ultimate threat to the survival of our democracy.

The inspector general, Steve A. Linick, who leads hundreds of employees in investigating fraud and waste at the State Department, had begun an inquiry into Mr. Pompeo’s possible misuse of a political appointee to perform personal tasks for him and his wife, according to Democratic aides. That included walking the dog, picking up dry-cleaning and making restaurant reservations, one said — an echo of the whistle-blower complaint from last year.

**the idiots*** who voted for trump
***or cultists, same thing

And so it begins…

Cult Daddy trump’s son-in-law and senior cult advisor Jared Kushner is laying the groundwork to delaying the election and commencing the second phase of dismantling our democracy and instilling authoritarian rule (the first phase was all the trump BS madness and vitriol and alliance-bashing up until now that shredded the fabric of our American way of life and our international credibility beyond recognition).

This is not a drill.

Resistance Persistence

Courtesy Wikipedia

I often get discouraged about how far and how fast my country has fallen since cult daddy trump, with the assistance of his authoritarian idol Putin, stole the election just a short few years ago, especially knowing that almost half of my country supports him so fervently and blindly in his relentless drive toward our seemingly inevitable destruction.

Just writing that depresses me because I know that no matter how much I rant and rave in my futile resistance here and elsewhere I will have absolutely no effect on altering the course of this national train wreck we’re on.

So then, why persist to resist in futility?

Because I’ve taken to heart the words of A. J. Muste in response to a reporter who asked him, “Do you really think you are going to change the policies of this country by standing out here [protesting the Vietnam War] alone at night in front of the White House with a candle?”

To which Muste replied:

Oh I don’t do this to change the country. I do this so the country won’t change me.


Nothing to see here…

Just the self-proclaimed greatest president of all time promoting his golf course in the middle of a raging pandemic with an out-of-control death toll due to his maniacal incompetence coupled with the obvious fact that he simply couldn’t care less about human lives…
