So let it be done…

Posted on: April 14, 2017

As sure as orange is the color of prison jumpsuits, these days monumental events fall prey to the 140-charactered immaculate misconceptions of POTUS (Putrefaction of the Umber Scrotum). As the King of Siam said, “So let it be written. So let it be done.” The Umber Scrotum took this to heart and added his dribbling drivel of, “I only regret that I have but 140 characters to tweet for my country.”

In the list of shortest reigns, at 84-days the “Persimmon Putintate” is fast approaching the record of Emperor Pertinax of Rome. Pertinax lasted 86-days before being beaten to death by the Praetorian Guards. His passing was fortuitous since shortly thereafter the Praetorians separated his head from his body, placed it upon a pike, and led a parade with it.

These tangerine-hued 84-days have not been without palace intrigue. Much to the chagrin of all ground beef-faced Americans, it appears Steve Bannon’s sell-by date has come and gone. Even his dead-eyed mini-me, Steve Miller, has broken pucker and in true remora fish symbiosis firmly attached himself to the Kingdom of Kushner.

Many progressives believe the devolution of Bannon into yogurt is positive. Color me unconvinced. Dolt 45, while not yet starting a war, is liable to leave devastation just as formidable in his wake.

Let’s review. If Jefferson Beauregard Sessions is beating the nativist tribal drums, while Scott Pruitt is figuring out how to incorporate asbestos and pesticides into our diets, with Budget Director Dick Mick Mulvaney proclaiming a goal of high inequality, and Gary Cohn running the economy as an asterisk to the Goldman Sachs balance sheet, the Dolt 45 administration is a conservative Cialis-palooza.

For instance, Granny Sessions, a man who was too racist to be confirmed as federal judge 30-years ago, has in the last few weeks:

Indicated a desire to roll back civil rights oversight of abusive police departments, stampeded over states’ objections to immigration enforcement raids at courthousesdropped efforts to improve forensic science, directed federal prosecutors to dedicate a larger share of their resources to deporting immigrantslaunched a new crackdown on high-tech guest worker visas, and indicated a desire to bring back old-school “war on drugs” policies, including a stepped-up federal crackdown on marijuana use.

Or let’s look at the influence of Goldman Sachs. Here’s the picture of the Mar-a-Lago ersatz Situation Room last weekend surrounding the Syrian deserted airfield cafeteria bombing.

In this picture, not counting the soldier at the door, there are fourteen people. Of those fourteen, eight have either worked for or borrowed money from Goldman Sachs.

These things alone will not add Dolt 45 to the Emperor Pertinax list. It will be the cold hard reality of numbers. Since I have trouble counting to 21 with my shoes on, here’s a picture.

 

Now for some perspective – in the United States there might be 12,200 lobbyists nationwide. We have a better idea of foreign agents since by law they must register. By a recent count, there were about 1,700 registered foreign agents.

So in a country of 320 Million souls, the odds of running into a free-range lobbyist are really slim, like 0.00004. The odds of running into a registered foreign agent on the hoof are even slimmer, 0.000005.

By their own admission, the OrangeCursed campaign had only about 40 key staffers and barely 100 advisers. The question becomes:  How did the campaign have, not one, but two retroactively registered foreign agents? And how, out of 320 Million people, did eleven putrid peons with ties to Putin’s Russia find their way to Trump Tower just in time for this hootenanny?

In their conclusory paragraph on Russian collusion in the 2016 election, The Guardian says:

One source suggested the official investigation was making progress. “They now have specific concrete and corroborative evidence of collusion,” the source said. “This is between people in the Trump campaign and agents of [Russian] influence relating to the use of hacked material.”

So let it be written. So let it be done.

 

 

What’s on your mind today?

Hilarious post! That first paragraph should be on the “Top 10 Best Opening Graphs of All Time” list. 😀

So let me get this straight…in late 2015 when British intelligence warned us about Drumpf and Pooty-Poot, the Post-Partisan One did nothing for 7 months because he “couldn’t win.” Then in July 2016, when he realized the Rancid Cheeto would win the nomination (after he won it, of course) and that the DNC hack was part of a Russian psy-ops attack against the American people….he did nothing except focus on preventing voting machine hacks, because coming out against Russia would seem too favorable to Hillary. (It’s better to let Pooty-Poot change our election results and create havoc in our country, right? Awesome set of priorities there, Obama. Way to be a patriot.) Then when James Comey asked to release the Russia results…he said no, because, post-partisan! Then when James Comey released the “Hey I’ve got nothing, emails emails emails” letter, he did nothing, see post-partisan! Then when Drumpf was “elected,” Obama thought The Donald would investigate himself and declare himself guilty of treason, so he did…you guessed it.

In summary, Barack Obama knew about the stealing of our election in advance and enabled it to happen, due to his innate narcissism and inability to make an unpopular decision. Those aren’t good enough reasons to let your government and your country devolve into chaos and war, from which we will struggle mightily to recover, and after which we will never be the same.

J’accuse, Barack Obama. You are the worst mistake the Democrats ever made. You wanted to be “transformative,” didn’t you? Well, congratulations.

@1, thanks MB.

Obama thought he would follow-up, “Hope and Change,” with “Dope and Strange.”

It seems as if Obama and Comey were both eatrn-up with “my reputation, my reputation, tens of thousands of emails, for my reputation.” It has never served anyone to forego their responsibility on the “if come” because it never does.

Our best mates from down under have given us a nice little “Spicer-ization tool” to Spicer-ize your name.

I tried to embed it, but couldn’t. You’ll have to go to The Sydney Morning Herald to use it. You put your name in and it figures out what Spicey would call you. Prolix comes out in Spicey World as “Process”.

Prolix, that is an excellent way to point out the denying disbelief part of Trump having so many of Putin’s tools — err, tardily registered agents of foreign interests — surrounding him. Out to the 5th place on the wrong side of the decimal point!

@4, another direct and insightful piece from Krugman. Trump being both nasty and stupid, of course he’s bargaining with other people’s health. I do hope that Krugman is right about how the Trumpists will vote next election.

…there’s the political reality that by sabotaging Obamacare, the Trump administration would be handing Democrats a huge electoral gift. Bear in mind that the places that are already poorly served by private insurers, and would therefore be most hurt, are relatively poor, rural areas — places that overwhelmingly voted Trump last year.

Are they going to vote IN their best interests next time? But enough about the WWC who we’re not going to get back anyhow. The real concern should be focused on resisting and overturning the voter disenfranchisement and suppression efforts being rolled out over the country.

and the real winner was just ignored???

Either our elections are democratic or we are just puppets.

Ah rats…I have been having trouble posting, since my home computer has a different IP address.

Here is the full post I wrote and had to copy paste it to Word…

Another great and funny post Prolix, thank you for giving me something in the middle of this Hell hole we find ourselves in, to finally laugh about on a Friday.

I’m lighting incense to various deities right now: RE: Voter tampering, 90 pages…

—- The pieces are finally coming together and someday, hopefully soon, all the things we suspected about Dumpers ‘win’ will be exposed.

No way in Hell that our country can not rectify this fake election ‘win’, if they have proof, and not put our Hillary in the WhiteHouse where she belongs.

I am going to believe it will until someone proves otherwise. Sure, it’s easy to say it will never happen, just because everything else has fallen fershitten since Nov 9th…but this is part of our country’s HISTORY.

Will it be written that the Russians and Rump tampered with the election and the real winner was just ignored???

Either our elections are democratic or we are just puppets.

@5, Luna, I thought about an analogy of honeybees finding a new hive, but selling Dolt 45 as a queen bee in Russian dressing drag was just too much work.

Isn’t it amazing just how many of these people there are though? It’s as if they were honeybees attracted to vodka — stop it, you are not going to do the honeybee deal. (Sorry, that was a little of my internal convo going on there.)

—– Absofrickinlutely!

Remember the one thing he begged for when he bro’ed up with Dumpy, “Please save my ObamaCare!”

HIS legacy piece, which he only signed into law after all the Dems did the heavy lifting.

Obama never wanted Hillary to out do him, even if it meant that American’s would pay the price for his insecurity and lack of courage and patriotism.

@8, thanks Shadow.

Here’s what I believe because I’ve seen it my entire life. People who don’t know anything about government or politics are always just like Dolt 45, they are the loudest drunks at the end of the bar telling the world how it should be run.

They know nothing about the reality of government and politics. It’s easy from their vantage point to believe all the wrong things. All the incompetence. They believe it. The corruption. They believe it. Everyone skirts the law. Of course, everyone does it.

That’s what Dolt 45 and his merry band of neophytes believed. Everyone does it in politics so we can play footsie with the Russians. No one knows and if someone finds out, we can just say, “Everyone does it.”

Well, everyone doesn’t. Truth is, with few exceptions, government workers are hardworking professionals who always do the right thing, both by the law and policy. Politicians, like Hillary, are far more honest than corporate counterparts. Unlike Hillary, who has had hostile investigators crawling up her back for 30 years, business people have been in involved in many more questionable acts of integrity.

Truth is, everyone in government and politics does not do it. It is one place where perception is not reality.

@9, Prolix, alas for the analogy, honeybees (as I bet you know) would not follow a drone. And Trump is a drone, a male honeybee who does no work and buzzes around loudly. The drones are only there in case a queen is hatched and goes out on a mating flight. The queen mates in the air with several drones, but they have to be the faster drones. Also alas, the drones who mate then die, after the sperm-delivering part of their anatomy gets ripped off at the end of the mating behavior. The queen has to go back in her hive and lay eggs endlessly for the rest of her life. Meanwhile, the worker bees, nonfertile females, are working away. I used to keep honeybees, and have thought of starting up again. Few things are more soothing than to sit by the side of a honeybee hive in the sun, listening to that happy buzz and watching them come and go.

Prolix

I agree and think that Hillary is such a huge threat to the GOP, the Dems that pushed Hillary out of the way and carried Obama to the WhiteHouse and most of the Rethugs…from A to Z.

1- She is a Democrat WOMAN, and these men don’t want to have ‘Mama’ run their country – unless she is a puppet that can be controlled, and looks like their dream woman.

2- She openly supports women…what could be worse? Equal pay, equality on every level, women might take their jobs and make them look incompetent.

3- She is damn smart, learns from her mistakes, never gives up, works hard, keeps fighting no matter how many times she is knocked down.

What is more of a threat than that to the Rethug, male dominated planet we are all living in???????

Other men, even Obama can get a free pass for being disconnected, lazy and timid……………but not a strong woman.

The media hate her because she won’t play their shame game.

Hillary must be getting too much positive press…today Google alert for her is filled with right wing negative articles about her.

A few examples: ‘I Don’t Hate Hillary Clinton,’ But ‘People Want To Move On’ [VIDEO] – Daily CallerJake Tapper on Hillary Clinton’s Sour Grapes: ‘There Doesn’t Seem to Be a Lot of Introspection’ – Independent Journal Review

@12, my grandfather and my father kept bees. Growing up, I loved the process involved. My father always said his bees knew him. We had this thing where I would say, “I don’t bee-lieve you,” and he would say, “I will make you a bee-liever.” So I didn’t fall far from the hive.

@14, the media has unfairly criticized Hillary for so long, it no longer has consequences. It is essentially a free space for jaundiced reporters.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

@13, shadowfax, there’s no introspection in those journalists. They only have to look in the mirror to see who helped bring Trump in.

@16, Prolix, I never saw anything to indicate my bees did recognize me. And it’s not as if we’ve domesticated honeybees at all. Yes, there’s been some selective breeding for various traits, but they’re not tame. The whole secret is to simply give the bees everything they need in housing, including additions when they need extra honey-storage space, and they will happily buzz about their lives just fine. Move slowly, don’t squash your bees, don’t look like a bear (no fuzzy dark clothes), don’t be loud, and they may well ignore you — they’re busy, after all. 😀

The White House Will Keep Its Visitor Logs Secret

Of course they will, otherwise how would we know when more Russian’s come to visit, more prostitutes come over to pee on beds and young girls are supplied to the groper in Chief?

A short break from the political derangement news:

NOT QUITTING
Hillary Clinton’s Back, and She’s Speaking for the Majority

Clinton spent some time walking in the woods, but she’s not a wounded loner—she’s determined to figure out how she can use the platform she gained by winning almost 3 million votes more than Donald Trump.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/04/14/hillary-clinton-s-back-and-she-s-speaking-for-the-majority.html

I hope Bannon is booted for more reasons than just the obvious…
—-
Alt-Right Ringleader Mike Cernovich Threatens to Drop ‘Motherlode’ If Steve Bannon Is Ousted
The Pizzagate conspiracy theorist claims to have a cache of dirty secrets that he’s willing to deploy.

Cernovich made the claims that he’d release a series of “scoops” on an eleven-minute, self-recorded Periscope Thursday night if Bannon is officially pushed out of the White House.
“If they get rid of Bannon, you know what’s gonna happen? The motherlode. If Bannon is removed, there are gonna be divorces, because I know about the mistresses, the sugar babies, the drugs, the pill popping, the orgies. I know everything,” said Cernovich.
“If they go after Bannon, the mother of all stories is gonna drop, and we’re just gonna destroy marriages, relationships—it’s gonna get personal.”
The Daily Beast reached out to Cernovich, asking who he meant by “they” and if he had documentation for the claims. He was on InfoWars’ radio show and livestream most of Friday afternoon, and did not respond at press time.
Alt-right leaders have spent the week pushing a #KeepBannon hashtag on Twitter, less than a week after a #FireKushner hashtag prominently amplified by Cernovich became the No. 1 trend in the United States on Twitter.
The hashtags refer to the falling out between Bannon and Jared Kushner that played out through planted quotes in websites like Breitbart, where Bannon previously worked as its CEO, after Trump’s son-in-law began to take over more responsibilities inside the Trump White House.

@3: No the little thing won’t embed but you can place the link this way. If that helps.

I was able to isolate just that frame so that way you don’t have to bother reading the article.

@24, what happened to your gravatar?

@25: I’m the anonymous, faceless man in the crowd. LOL

I just started reading the post and I just wanted to say: “Putrefaction of the Umber Scrotum” should win a Pulitzer for poetry.

Excellent take on Russia and why people like Carter Page are successes there. (Also, as I noted in the comments there, when Trump said Putin didn’t respect Obama, it’s true. Except for Putin it’s because Obama is black and Russians are a deeply racist country.)

Preet Bharara comments on Andrea Mitchell’s statement in Politico that she’s never seen as much lying as Trump’s people are doing:

@1, MB, your comment is the perfect post script to Prolix’ brilliant post.

@20, spot on!

@21, hahaha! I love that tweet!

Meant to say Prolix I love the image of Col. Cornpone and Granny Clampett together. It’s so perfect.

Did you see that a passenger on United was stung by a scorpion that fell out of the baggage compartment??

@35: I saw something about that. Don’t think there’s anyway I would want to fly on that airline.

@36, OMG I would scream and scream and scream! I would never stop screaming! I would have probably opened the door and parachuted out!

@37: Where you gonna get that parachute from?

Sessions looks like he’s been a bad little boy, knows it, and can’t believe he is actually getting away with doing all the evil shit that tickles his cruel fancy. I hope he gets taken down bigly.

@38, maybe he packs one on plane trips???

Wins caption award.

@41: Hysterical!

I get little brown scorpions on my patio. I usually find them when I’m cleaning the patio, and I lift up the pots and they will be living underneath. I step on them. I usually see about one per year inside the house, always on a wall, during the summer. My bro-in-law used to clean pools about 25 years ago and got stung by one. He said it hurt like crazy and his hand swelled up, but the homeowner gave him some first aid and it healed up in a couple of days. I think they poured ammonia on it, like you do with a bee sting.

Scorpions are terrifying! I’m really afraid of anything like that: scorpions, snakes. All bugs. Ugh. Ew. No.

@3 Spicing my name comes out” Controleur Skating” sounds like a French Spice version of contrarian & he’s just guessing at what SK might stand for. Maybe that’s how they do policy development in this administration.
On to catching up with current posts, since I woke up and WW3 hasn’t begun yet and 45 is still president.

Was this tax protest organized by Bernie bros? If so, it sure didn’t seem to inspire big crowds from the photos I’ve seen. I don’t think the one in San Francisco starts for about a half an hour, but there isn’t much buzz about the march where I am.

I think Haberman unintentionally let an important idea slip here:

In NYC the turnout is decent for the protests:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

So I guess there’s an Andrew Sullivan column that people are flipping out over. I know there was Hillary bashing (the byline and headline are all about Hillary bashing), but now people are flipping out over the rest of the article because somehow Sullivan takes a turn there to talk about Dr. Dao and things get racist real fast. I only read a few of the racist paragraphs… have no interest in reading the rest of it. But Sullivan is taking a lot of heat.

Sullivan has always been scum. But he continues to have jobs.

The big missile l that … couldn’t make it.

Interesting thread on what turns out to be planned violence in Berkeley today at the Tax March, by the alt-right Trump goons. Because of course nothing says freedom like the freedom to beat up people you disagree with to these poeple.

@55, Andrew Sullivan is the Keith Olbermann of erstwhile writers. He has always sabotaged his career after rehabilitating himself in new positions. He’s a half-bubble off plumb is my bet. This latest hornets’ nest he has stirred is just plain stupid. If he took any social science during college, this stuff was covered ad nauseam. Even if he had done extensive research by maybe googling something, he would have known his entire premise is FUBAR. Nothing like someone stirring up a hornets’ nest to discover it was a hand grenade with the pin pulled.

@56, It says the No Dong is a road-mobile, liquid propellant missile, but they tried to fire it from a submarine. Do you think they misread the instructions and got confused on the liquid part?

Loved the photos of the Tax protest in NY. Looks like SF had a good turn out too.

What were proTrump supporters thinking when the altRight decided to have a supportRump gathering in Berkeley, of all places.

Blood was shed and some got their asses kicked. Really ugly!

Of course they decided to do it when the University was off for the weekend or with student/staff/faculty support, it would have been a bigger fight.

I’ve never seen this video: it’s extraordinary. I don’t know where this is from!

@64 That was due to a translation error somewhere overseas. (Thus the earphones). The translator got the question wrong.

Great post Prolix. We could come up with all kind of things for POTUS.

@64 – That was a while back when she was SOS. She was in Africa. Of course the media thought she was rude to point out the sexism in that statement, but most normal people thought she was fabulous.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/6011874/Hillary-Clinton-my-husband-Bill-Clinton-is-not-secretary-of-state.html

@64, 67, loved that! I thought she handled that stupid and insulting question very well. Besides, when you have an extremely high-level diplomat at a public function, you don’t waste time asking what their spouse’s opinion is. I’d have been so pissed steam would be coming out my ears! Cannot understand why the media went nuts and wrote BS such as she “lost her cool” or was “angry again” except wimmenz are supposed to be agreeable at all times and never be so forthright as to speak in a way to reveal someone inanity.

Seems weird that it was an interpretive error. Bill Clinton hadn’t been president for 8 yrs then. They were in Africa, so Obama being POTUS should be quite memorable.

Media… what’cha gonna do.

ABC News’ Kirit Radia reports: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost her cool Monday after a Congolese student, speaking through a translator, asked her what “Mr. Clinton” thought about a Chinese trade deal with the Democratic People’s Republic of the Congo.

“You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?” Clinton replied, clearly irked by the thought of being her husband Bill’s spokeswoman.

“My husband is not secretary of state, I am,” she replied. “If you want my opinion I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband.”

The only problem? Apparently the translator made a mistake and the student had wanted to know what President Obama thought of the deal. A State Department official tells ABC News the student went up to Clinton after the event and told her he was misquoted. No immediate word yet how Clinton responded.

Regardless of the error, the notion of Secretary Clinton’s deference to her husband clearly touched a nerve with America’s top diplomat. Just a week ago the former President stole his wife’s thunder when he appeared in North Korea to rescue two American journalists detained there. His trip came just as Secretary Clinton embarked on a swing through Africa she hoped would shine light on the plight of the continent.

Still, imagine what the students thought when her response was translated back and they heard Clinton call President Obama her husband….

http://www.blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2009/08/lost-in-translation-clinton-says-she-not-bill-is-the-secretary-of-state.html

In case anyone forgot… and they won’t on my watch. FOX news no less.

And one more thing. Bill “didn’t steal her thunder”. Obama knew he was over his head and asked Hillary and Bill to take care of it. And who is in charge of negotiations of a release like this? Why, that would be the Secretary of State, of course. But no…. can’t give her any credit. It was all Obama and Bill, don’t ‘cha know.

This is so true…

Oops! Except Obama is not the smartest! I read that too fast, just focused on the second-dumbest & all-time dumbest.

Time for bed!
