‘Karma Bites’

*

Here passed another week in the Amerika of Trumplestiltskin the Thinskin.

Hey, Trumpster!  How’s this Orange ‘change’ thingy doin’ for ya?

*

Joe Walsh, R (17 Feb 17, his radio show):

  • ‘We are a divided nation! I like that. We’ve been divided the past 10 or 12 years.  It will get even uglier with Trump.’

Joe Walsh, R (20 Feb 17, his radio show):

  • ‘I want disrupted guh’mint.  Trump hired people who have no guh’mint experience.  Drain the swamp.  Flynn lied to Pence; he discussed Obama sanctions with Russia.  That’s treason.’

David Haynes, R, ‘Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’ (22 Feb 17, PBS ‘Newshour’):

  • ‘Wisconsin is one of the most polarised states in the nation.  The national debate is fractured.  We retreated to our echo chambers and tribalism.  Trump can become less chaotic, more professional.  It really is amateur hour.  It’s hard to get anything done if there isn’t good leadership coming from Washington.’

Steve Bannon, R (Trump Convention; 23 Feb 17, CBS News):

  • ‘It’s not gonna get better.  It’s gonna get worse every day.’

Walsh initially tried to pin his ‘divided’ nation nonsense on Obama.  His rant wandered.  Then it became clear that Walsh was not too clear when he used his Bush ‘Fuzzy Math’ – ’10 or 12 years ago’ was ‘Shrub’ Bush’s presidency, not Obama’s.  Never mind that it was Bush, he blamed Obama anyway.  Blaming and scapegoating is what Republikans do.  It’s what Fascists do.

Bush was proud that he created this national divide.

He regularly boasted how he had his ‘base’ (‘My have mores’) and cared not one wit of selfish bat squeeze for anyone else.  He brought out his ‘Permanent Republikan Majority’.  Remember, too, that Romney campaigned only for his own Republikans, he had no regard for Democrats, independents, ‘third parties’, or others.  Trump’s campaign was nothing more than verbal platitudes and lies sufficient to snooker as many voters as possible.  It took Germans enamoured by Hitler and his NAZIs more than 20 years to wake from their inducements.  By then, they were responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of millions of people throughout the world.  How long will you take to re-awaken from your Trump hypnosis?

Of course, Walsh was not condemning his Republikan ‘divided’ nation, he was praising it.  Praising how he and his Republikans refuse to ‘compromise’ with Democrats on anything – not at any level from national to state to local governments.  Walsh was orgasmically celebrating that their ‘Permanent Republikan Majority’ will make their ‘divisiveness’ that much more ‘uglier’ during these next four years, eight years – maybe more – maybe permanently.  Walsh wants nothing of ‘United we stand’, he and his Republikans demand ‘divided we fall’.

You Trumpsters voted for this ‘disrupted guh’mint’, ‘treason’, ‘chaos’, ‘amateur leadership’ – it’s your ‘change’ thingy.  Only problem is that you are giving this nation a rabble on corporate shills who should be in prison for destroying this nation during ‘Shrub’ Bush’s free reign administration.  Bad enough, Obama and his Attourney General chose to not prosecute a one of them.  They are now returned to us via Trump the Almighty to re-feast at this government largesse.  Your loss, Dear Trumpster – that ‘change’ thingy.

Question. Are you truly certain that Flynn lied to Pence?  Maybe both Flynn and Pence conspired to lie in unison?  They both presented their unified cover-up until Flynn got exposed.  Flynn was easy to fire – he was expendable.  Will Trump act to investigate Pence’s conspiracy with Flynn?  Will Pence be equally subject to his removal from office for lying about his ties with this Russian conspiracy?  Stayed tuned til our next episode of ‘How The Trump Turns’.

I submit that Trump knows and he lies, too.  He must certainly know – he is tied completely to Putin at the short ones.  The Orange-hair brags that he knows all – that he is smarter, knows more than all the generals.  How, then,can he not know this?

I submit that both Trump and Pence do know every act Flynn committed when he spoke to Russian ‘intelligence’ (AKA, spies):

  •  That Trump, Pence, and Flynn sought to appease Putin.
  • That Trump would promptly remove all sanctions that Obama placed against Russia.
  • That Pence lied to the American people about Flynn.
  • That Pence lied to save his own hide.

I submit that both Trump and Pence committed ‘treason’ as Walsh charges.  Nevertheless, both Trump and Pence are secure knowing that no Republikan will issue orders of impeachment in the House of Respresentatives; that no Republikan-controlled Senate will ever convict either or both Trump and Pence of any impeachment charges.  This is another act of Republikan Fascism – their partisan interest superior to our ‘We the People’ national American interest.

*

Reverend Pat Robertson, R (20 Feb 17, his TBN ‘700 Club’):

  • ‘We’ve been doing it all wrong.  There’s nothing against states establishing a religion.  We need to get the states to start teaching the Bible with the kids’ milk and cookies.’

Joe Walsh, R (20 Feb 17, his radio show):

  • ‘Schools are indoctrinating our kids in civil rights.  There is no discrimination against Black people!  There is no voter suppression of Black people.’

Yep.

Trump and his schools secretary DeVos are poised to push their fanatical Christian Conservative religion into our public schools and mandate their version of their Bible as the primary public school textbook – same as the Taliban – welcome to the Taliban States of Amerika.

Then Walsh complained about a public school meeting among parents and educators to discuss civil rights and discrimination issues – Walsh objected to that ‘indoctrinating’.  Apparently he agrees with Robertson that ‘indoctrinating’ our puiblic school children with state-mandated right-wing extremist Christian Conservative religious ideology is okay – establishing the Taliban of America is okay.  They don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution or Supreme Court.

More of that Trump ‘change’ thingy.  How’s that gonna do for ya?

*

Laura Ingraham, R (22 Feb 17, her radio show):

  • ‘Now we have all three branches of guh’mint’.  We need to push things through it.  It doesn’t hafta be perfect.’

Reince Priebus, R (Trump Convention; 23 Feb 17, CBS News):

  • ‘Our Party can’t be stopt.’

Ingraham encouraged her Senate Republi-cons to eliminate the filibuster rule requiring at least 60 votes to pass any legislation.  See, Dear Reader. Republi-cons gladly demanded the 60-votes rule to block and hinder Obama, but now, when they control it all, they want to eliminate the only legislative option available to minority Democrats to prevent ‘the tyranny of the majority’ Republi-cons from ‘pushing things through’ –  Republikan Congress against the will of ‘We the People’.

Trump, Ingraham, Bannon, and their Republikans demean ‘We the People’ when our Supreme Court requires ‘perfect’ legislation to to meet Constitutional muster.

*

Right-wing Republican radio news (22 Feb 17, KFNX AM):

  • ‘Town halls are rowdy and loud.’

Laura Ingraham, R (22 Feb 17, her radio show):

  • ‘Andy Biggs is hiding from his constituents.’

Reverend Pat Robertson, R (22 Feb 17, his TBN ‘700 Club’):

  • ‘Protests are paid demonstrators.  Liberal activist from here in Washington.  Republicans and Trump don’t have anything in the legislative.  It’s all too much for Trump.  He’s come up with creative programs.’

Joe Walsh, R (22 Feb 17, his radio show):

  • ‘There are a lot of angry people out there – on the Liberal left.  Same as the T Party from 2009, 2010.  Eight and 10 years ago.  The Koch Brothers financed and backed the T Party.  We control all of ‘guh’mint’.’

NBC News (22 Feb 17):

  • ‘Trump is accusing town halls of being infiltrated by so-called professional protestors.  Firey, in-your-face confrontations.  For many Republikans, it is a hostile homecoming; constituents demanding answers on healthcare, taxes, and immigration.  Backlash for T-party favourites.  Overflow crowds of Democrats.  Trump mocks the angry crowds as Liberal activists.  Lawmakers wondering if this is the start of a movement.’

CBS News (22 Feb 17):

  • ‘Congress holding town meetings with constituents are facing loud protests from opponents of Trump who claims professional outside agitators are to blame.  If professional agitiators were lurking, we didn t see them.  The T-party was a vocal minority that pushed Republikans to the right.’

KPHO TV (23 Feb 17):

  • ‘Representative Paul Gosar cancelled his town hall and did a teleconference instead.’
  •  Sign at the cancelled Gosar town hall: ‘We found Waldo. Where’s Gosar?’.

PBS ‘Newshour’ (24 Feb 17):

  • ‘Congress is on vacation this week. Fewer than 30 Republicans are holding town hall meetings this week.  Scores are protesting.  This fury has been building since the election.  The outcry is even at places where Republicans are the majority.  They organise on Facebook.  Constituents are motivated, none are paid, they buy their own stamps.  Crowds call for their Representatives to oppose the President.’  ‘Several Republicans tuck tail and run from their town halls.’  ‘The ‘Wall Street Journal’ calls these protests ‘organic’ and ‘real’.’

David Brooks, R (24 Feb 17, PBS ‘Newshour’):

  • ‘The T Party fed into the Trump philosophy.  They are waving Russian flags at the Trump conservative convention this week.’

Lemme see if I have this correct.  Republi-con T-baggers ran thousands of disruptive town halls meant to intimidate and harass Democratic members of Congress throughout Obama’s administration.  Now that Trump the Orange is in office, now that Republi-cons ‘control’ all three branches of American government in their vaulted ‘tyranny of the majority’, suddenly the people attending town halls are the ‘enemy’ because they are the opposition to Trumple Thumple and his Merry Men of Orange?

Those Republi-cons of yore chased their Democratic representatives from their town halls.  Now Ingraham finds it objectionable that Representative Andy Biggs (‘R’ of Arizona) – one of their own – ‘hides’ when Democrats attend his own town halls.  Biggs is a no-show at his own snake oil shows – he refuses to be confronted by any citizen of his district.  In fact, Biggs closed his Arizona district’s Congressional offices to all visitors.  Yep, that ‘man of the people’ refuses to meet one-on-one to conduct ‘the people’s business’ with the very electorate of his Congressional district – unless you are a corporate sponsor bringing bags of cash bribes, er, campaign contributions, don’tcha know.  How’s that for elitist!

Robertson accuses ‘protestors’ at town halls as ‘paid’ lobbyists from ‘Washington’.  Of course he has no proof because no proof exists, only proof he is flapping his gums.  Hey, Orange Trump flaps his gums all day and nary a word of truth passes through them.  No time for truth nowadays; truth is dead.  Of course, it is fine for Republi-con T-baggers to pay their dupes and lobbyists to attack Democrats at their town halls – Citizens United, ya know.

Walsh admitted that these current ‘Liberal left’ protestors are not ‘paid’ lobbyists – that accusation is Trump ‘fake news’.  Walsh conceded that his T-baggers deliberately sought to disrupt otherwise peacefull town halls conducted by Democratic Party members of Congress in 2009 and 2010.  He repeated that his T-baggers from ‘eight and 10 years ago’ (more Bush ‘Fuzzy Math’) were and are still financed and backed by the infamous Koch Brothers to the tune of billions of Dollars, thanks to Citizen’s United legalising bribery.  Only one real difference with Walsh then versus now. Then he enjoyed his T-bag Koch Brothers-bought-and-paid professional ‘protestors’ who feigned anger to create their ruckus.  Nowadays, he accuses Democrats of abusing their 1st Amendment Constitutional right to assemble for redress of grievances.  No problemo, dear Rightie, his Republi-cons are their own, self-described ‘tyranny of the majority’ autocrats.

‘Agitators’.  We heard that word too many times throughout Republikan eras.  To them, anyone who objects, anyone who protests, anyone who disagrees is a condemned ‘agitator’.  Read ‘Grapes of Wrath’ to learn more of Amerikan Fascism labeling destitute farm-workers and union members as ‘agitators’.

Republikans called ‘Freedom Riders’ ‘agitators’ as paid ‘outside protestors’.  Hmm.  Where have we heard that accusation recently?

Where are all these ‘creative’ ideas?  Not one piece of legislation is in the Congressional hopper.  The ‘wall’ is now being debated as costing $30 billion, yet not one Republikan has taken the initiative to place that budget into the House of Representatives schedule.  Republi-cons fail to present one ‘repeal and replace’ act to destroy and dismantle ACA Obama-care.  Trumpster his-self is too busy sending twitters and has done nothing to move his demand to actuality – barking by the Carnival Master Trump without one single nip.

PBS ‘Newshour’ (22 Feb 17):

  • ‘The deck is stacked.  Manufacturing jobs in America have been declining since the mid-1970s.’

One Trumpster in this PBS news-spot complained, ‘The last 15 years have sucked, the manufacturing jobs have left’.  Another complained that GE moved to Mexico during that same time.  They both fell for the Bush ‘Fuzzy Math’.  Fifteen years ago was Republikan Bush – not Clinton, not Obama.

The Orange Man snookered you.  Trump knowingly made empty promises of millions of new manufacturing jobs for Americans.  Republikans – Nixon and Ford – began sending American jobs to Republikan globalist overseas slave-wage sweat-shops.  Bush sent millions more American jobs to those overseas slave-wage sweat-shops.  In point of fact, Obama’s economic policies managed to create several million new domestic American jobs despite oppositional Republi-cons who opposed him, obstructed him in every way possible beginning on election night 2008 and continuing throughout his entire eight-year administration.

NBC News (22 Feb 17):

  • ‘Trump made a big U-turn on transgender rights changing course from Obama’s position that they are protected by federal law.  It could have far-reaching consequences including the fight over transgender kids and the bathrooms they use at school.  It’s a big reversal for transgender rights.  Trump took back the Obama directive.  Trump’s order is a victory for the states that sued to block the Obama order.  Trump will also drop its challenge to North Carolina’s bathroom law.’

PBS ‘Newshour’ (22 Feb 17):

  • ‘Trump moved to revoke guidelines on transgender bathrooms in public schools.  Trump says he is acting because he believes states should set their own policies.  Thirteen states sued Obama last year.’  ‘Trump made a major change regarding transgender youth and which bathrooms they use at school.  He will roll back Obama guidance that advises schools to let transgender youth use bathrooms of their gender identity.’

August Spies wrote how Republikans and conservatism criminalises natural human activity.  Trump now makes it a crime on an act of nature for trans-persons to use their facility of public accommodation.

No way!  I am never going back inside a men’s room.  But here’s the plan: we all gather at our state capitol and at other governmental agency offices up and down the spectrum – federal, state, local – massing into their restrooms according to their demands of Trump’s law.  Imagine seeing someone quite femme enter the men’s room or a burley trans-man use the woman’s facility!  Tee-hee!!!  They want it, they got it.

This tactic is harldy a new idea.  ‘Freedom Riders’ used it during their 1961 bus ‘tour’ through the Southern states.  Recall that the US Supreme Court ruled ‘Jim Crow’ and segregation as un-Constitutional.  The ‘Freedom Riders’ sought to force the application of federal law and federal protection as they rode public transportation from one Southern state to another.  Their efforts were courageous and heroic; White Supemicists, KKK, neo-NAZIs met these brave Riders at each bus stop and committed violent crimes upon those Riders that, sadly, neither local, state, nor federal law and justice agencies sought prosecution – many crimes enticed by and committed by law enforcement agencies themselves.  Bigotry permeated the American injustice system in 1961; we today prove that it still pervades in 2016.

Where’s your ‘change’ thingy in that, Dear Trumsper?

Civil rights are national rights are Constitutional rights are human rights are natural rights – none subject to the whims of state guh’mints.  Thirty-five states are controlled by Republikan guh’mint; not one of them voluntarily accepts trans rights and LGBT rights when there is no federal enforcement to comply with the Constitution.  Only six states are controlled by both a Democratic governor and a Democratic legislature; they protect trans and LGBT Constitutional rights.  How’s that Trump feigned ‘change’ thingy support for trans and LGBT Constitutional rights doin’ for ya!

Here’s to my two dear Trumpster friends who boasted throughout the campaign season and since Election Day, ‘Trump will never do that!’.  Guess what?  He did it.  He lied to you; this was not his first lie nor his last lie, but only one in his continual string of perpetual lies.  Now what do you do?  What else do you need that proves Trump is a liar?  A Republi-con!  Not only is he opposed to you and me – our community – he is opposed to America’s Constitution.

Seems the current way to defend our selves is to embarrass those Trumpsters.  Jenner needs her reality checked about now.

Wouldn’t it be fair that Jenner gets to be the first person arrested and convicted for violating her buddy’s new decree!  The perfect place would be at Trump Tower. Karma Bites, eh.

PBS Newshour (24 Feb 17):

  • ‘President Trump keeps up his attack on the news media as he bans CNN, NY Times, LA Times and others from a press briefing.  Republicans in Congress hear complaints at packed town hall meetings.

CBS News (24 Feb 17):

  • ‘Stories Trump would like to see dry up include those sourced to the FBI that forced Trump to fire his national security advisor.  As accurately reported, Michael Flynn lied to Pence about his contacts with Russia.  CBS News has confirmed the FBI is investigating Trump associates coordinating with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign.  Russia launched a series of cyber attacks designed to interfere in the election and help Trump.  NY Times wrote about constant contacts between Trump aides and Russian Intelligence.  Reince Priebus pressured the FBI to refute the story.  The FBI declined.  It was troubling that Priebus had contact with the FBI.’

Donald Trump, R (24 Feb 17, CBS News):

  • ‘I have nothing to do with Russia.  No person.  I call the fake news the enemy of the people.  They just make ’em up.’

CBS News (24 Feb 17):

  • ‘Trump took heat on Sweden talking about a terror attack there that never actually happened.  He refused to reverse that false claim.  The president’s real troubles are with the facts.  He complained about a story that relied on nine anonymous sources; the article was true and forced the firing of Flynn.’

Agreed.

Trump the Orange is the fabricator and originator of ‘fake news’, therefore, Trump is ‘the enemy of the people’.  When the truth confronts Trump, he goes into denials.  How true!  Quote the Orange evermore:  ‘Sad!’

Trumpism IS ‘fake news’ – his entire 2016 campaign that he began in 2007 is ‘fake news’.

  • ‘This was never, in fact, about free speech at all.  It was about making it OK to say racist, sexist, transphobic, and xenophobic things, about tolerating the public expression of those views right up to the point where it becomes financially unwise to do so.’

Fox News is ‘fake news’.  Remember, Fox News won a Republikan Supreme Court decision that ruled that it is legal for Fox News to issue ‘fake news’.  Fox News, the Republikan Party’s self-admitted ‘propel the propaganda’ machine purporting to be a news outlet that openly tells ‘fake news’ to its audience.  Fox News, that news media, the Republikan Party ‘propaganda’ so proudly declared by Bush, is Trump’s own ‘media’; Fox News holds no obligation to tell the truth thanks to their Republikan Supreme Court.

Trump’s Republikan Fascism is based upon ‘fake news’ – nowadays, this time it is Trump’s own ‘fake news’.

Trumpism, is here as Neo-McCarthyism.  Republikan Fascism is ‘happening here’ courtesy of Trump.

Michael ‘savage’ Weiner boasts that he has a list ‘five pages long’ of Democtatic, Liberal, left-wing people and organisations who ‘must be investigated’.

The first era of American Fascism were the 12 years during the administrations of Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover.  They gave to this nation: corporatism, banking fraud, election fraud, The First Great Republikan Depression, Dustbowl days, the demise of the American family
farm.

Look up ‘Blacklisting’ and ‘Red Channels’ from the 1950s.  Comprehend what Republikans did to ‘investigate’ tens of millions of innocent Americans during those insidious years – during Republikan President Eisenhower’s reign, Republikan Fascism directed by Nixon, McCarthy, and Cohn, and Republikan control of Congress – during the Republikan’s second incarnation of their American Fascism.  The 1950s were years of fear among all Americans being un-Constitutionally targeted, attacked, ‘investigated’ as ‘un-American’.

Trumpism is here as America’s third wave of Republikan Fascism.  It is ‘happening here’.  Will this be the last of Amerikan Fascism?  Will this be the last of America?

More of that Trump ‘change’ thingy that’s doin’ it to ya.

Sad news to those of you who follow Liberal talk radio.

Alan Colmes died (23 Feb 17) following a brief illness.

He was an enjoyable show to hear on the way home at night.  He knew his subject matter; his combative style was still courteous even toward those who opposed him with their hate.  My drive home shall be empty at his absence.  I shall miss him.

Thank you for reading.

Please come again.
