Daddy Can Never Be Wrong

February 1st, 2017

Jesus was a crossmaker. I went to a rally in Bowling Green to stop Betsy DeVos from being voted Secretary of Education. Republicans have 52-48 majority in the Senate. We need a few Republicans to vote against confirming Devos. Three would make it. A tie vote would give the vote to the Vice President who would vote to confirm. We have tried to get through to Sen. Paul to vote no on DeVos. Sen. Collins from Maine and Murkowski from Alaska have said they intend to vote against her confirmation. That’s 50-50. Need one more. We need Rand Paul to vote no and vote for our state which is already near the bottom in education. He hasn’t rubber-stamped all of the Cabinet picks, and this one is really important.

 

He’s a bandit and a heartbreaker. The monster POTUS has tried to institute a sickening travel ban for refugee Muslims seeking asylum from seven countries. The rape of the world. The slaughtering of the American dream. Protests at airports all over the country. Giving hope and inspiration to the enemy. He’s so concerned about ISIS and yet does counterproductive things in order to endanger Americans and embolden terrorists. This is a sick man with a sick group of terrible people behind him and a sick group of brownshirts who love and support him no matter what he does.

 

Daddy can never be wrong. That’s the breakdown of any defense of POTUS by his hardcores. They will deflect, that’s all they can do. Daddy can never be wrong, no matter what Daddy does. No one can tell Daddy he’s wrong. Not the acting Attorney General, not the courts, not the houses of congress, not the opposition, not the press, not the establishment, not the norms of society.

 

One begins to think of the Bible and the man of lawlessness as depicted in 2 Thessalonians, and one starts to think of POTUS in these terms. But he wouldn’t have to be the man of lawlessness or the man of sin or the Antichrist.

 

Just Daddy. Daddy, who is always right. Who will always keep us safe and warm. Daddy can never be wrong.

Some Political Phone Calls I’ve Made Recently

November 21st, 2016

November 21, I called the Democratic House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform at (202)225-5054 and asked for a thorough bipartisan investigation into Donald Trump’s finances. On the second try, I got through to a person who took my message.

Inauguration Day, 2017

Inauguration Day, 2017

 

 

November 20 just before midnight CST, I called the Morton County (ND) Sheriff’s Dept asking them to stand down and stop firing ice water and rubber bullets at unarmed protesters in 26 degree weather. I was given two numbers. 701-328-8118 (where I left a message) and 701-667-3330 (which was busy). In addition, I called North Dakota Governor Dalrymple in order to ask him to call off the MCSD but I was unable to get through. His office number is 701-328-2200

 

November 20, I called Speaker Paul Ryan’s office (202)225-3031 to participate in a poll he is conducting about Obamacare. I was not able to leave a message because I called after business hours but I think that is an option if you call during the regular business day. Press 1 if you support Obamacare. Press 2 if you oppose Obamacare. There is no option if you think Obamacare is a good idea but needs some fine-tuning.

 

November 20, I also called the Department of Justice at (202)353-1555 to suggest an audit of the 2016 Presidential ballot, given what the media has uncovered about Donald Trump’s debts to the Bank of China ($650 million), the Deutsche Bank (who the DoJ just fined $14 billion), and his links to Florida Attorney General/person who decided not to pursue the Trump University case after receiving a $25,000 bribe/Republican elector/member of Trump’s transition team Pam Bondi. You could see how a conflict of interest may arise, right?

 

I called Senator Rand Paul’s office in D.C. twice, once on the 16th, and again on the 18th. That number is (202)224-4343. I called on one occasion asking Sen. Paul to condemn the Steve Bannon appointment. I called on another occasion asking for him to join in a bipartisan investigation in the link between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

 

November 17, I called Washington State Senator Doug Ericksen (360)-786-7682 about his bill to criminalize protest that blocks commerce and transportation. He seems to believe that George Soros is really paying people to protest and disrupt and terrorize communities. I left a message against this intended legislation. Here is where you can read more about what he plans. http://dougericksen.src.wastateleg.org/ericksen-bill-criminalize-economic-terrorism/

 

November 17, I called the Republican House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform at (202)205-5074 and asked for an investigation into Donald Trump’s finances. The same as I asked from the Dem. House Committee days later.

 

On November 14 and 16, I called the Bowling Green office of Congressman Brett Guthrie (R-Ky) representing Kentucky’s 2nd district. I called asking for a condemnation of the Bannon appointment and the problem with Russian meddling in a Presidential election. That office number is (270)842-9896. I left a message both times and made sure to point out that I lived in his district.

November 16, I called Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin at (502)564-2611 and was put through to a voicemail. I left a message asking that his 2017 goals include hiring more workers for the Benefind call center and making the Benefind website more user-friendly.
November 14 and 15, I called Mitch McConnell’s office in D.C. at (202)224-2541. I wanted him to condemn the Bannon appointment. He is the Senate Majority Leader and a prominent, influential Republican. No messages were accepted, my call was not picked up. Who was I kidding? The difference between Mitch McConnell and a turtle is that a turtle has some type of skeleton.

 

On November 16, I called Kentucky’s Cabinet for Health and Family Services. After eight attempts to even get on the line, I was put on hold for about fifty-three minutes, much of which was spent listening to a fifteen-second tune that repeated. After I got a human on the line, I was able to deal with what was essentially an accounting error. I had spent an hour on the phone trying to deal with somebody else’s error. It was then that I realized that the next four years would be like.

 

 

 

 

Knives Out: GOP Version

November 15th, 2016

 

This morning, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) proclaimed “Welcome to the dawn of a new unified Republican government.” By the end of the day, three Republican senators had shown that the new Republican government was anything but unified. President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team also exposed itself as not only being splintered but totally unprepared for the task awaiting them come January 2017.

 

I watched Saturday Night Live last week like a lot of people did. It was the first one after the election and Dave Chappelle was host. Dave’s monologue was funny and insightful, some of the best television all year and he closed it with these words “I’m going to give (Trump) a chance, and I’m going to ask him to give us one too.” Crystal clear, Dave. Let’s give Trump a chance.

 

So Trump selected Steve Bannon as his chief White House strategist. Bannon, the guy who runs Breitbart.com where you could find such a steady dose of clickbait, inaccurate news and straight up baiting at the expense of. . . well, let’s just say anyone who isn’t a white male. This was the chance we gave Trump and he totally botched it. How hard is that to do? “Don’t appoint a race-baiting anti-Semite bigot to your cabinet?”

 

Then you find out Trump almost made Bannon his chief of staff but didn’t because his son-in-law Jared Kushner stepped in. You should read this article on Politico about what a complete shitshow the transition has been. Bannon’s ex-wife accused him of not wanting his daughters to go to a private school with Jews. Kushner, who married Ivanka Trump, is a Jew. You do the math.

 

The phone lines have been flooded over the last few days by concerned Americans wanting their representatives to condemn the Bannon appointment. So far the only Kentucky politician to condemn it has been Rep. John Yarmuth who is not coincidentally the only Democrat of the bunch. Sen. Rand Paul did not condemn the Bannon appointment but he condemns the mere idea of John Bolton in a cabinet position, promising Politico that he would do “whatever it takes to stop someone like John Bolton from being secretary of state.”
Rand Paul avoiding the Bannon appointment and attacking both Bolton and Rudolph Giuliani (another Iraq war hawk) is interesting. Oh, wait he defends the hiring of Bannon fucking hell.

“I’ve met him. I don’t believe him to be a racist. I don’t believe him to be someone who characterizes people on race, gender, religion, you name it,” Paul said. “I think he ought to be judged by how well he performs.” – Rand Paul to Yahoo News 

 

Way to pick a hill to die on, Rand. It was an honor to vote for Jim Gray against you last week. I’d do it again in an instant.

 

Moving along, some of the old guard Republicans found less embarrassing ways to show the schisms in the new Republican government. In a press statement, Sen. John McCain of Arizona condemned the incoming administrations pillow-talk with Russia:

“With the U.S. presidential transition underway, Vladi­mir Putin has said in recent days that he wants to improve relations with the United States. We should place as much faith in such statements as any other made by a former KGB agent who has plunged his country into tyranny, murdered his political opponents, invaded his neighbors, threatened America’s allies and attempted to undermine America’s elections.”

 

The problem with press statements and open letters is that they are the written word and Trump is not much of a reader. It would have been easier to reach Trump by showing up at 5:30 pm on ESPN’s Pardon The Interruption with Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon, in the hopes he’s watching.

 

To McCain’s point of attempting to undermine American elections, Sen. Lindsay Graham wants to investigate whether Russia had a role in cyberattacks on the Democratic National Committee to disrupt the election. Lindsay Graham is one guy who got burned by Trump who didn’t come running back. He’s no Ted Cruz.

 

Is there more? Oh you bet there’s more. Methinks Paul Ryan is cracking if he can say this is the dawn of a new unified anything and keep a straight face. Read the summary of what happened today that I’m copying below. You’ll be gobsmacked. It’s almost like the Marx Brothers’ Duck Soup but a tragedy instead.

Post-Trump Stress Disorder

October 10th, 2016

Let’s look back at the last two weeks. I moved from Fordsville to Whitesville. I started a health program at a hospital in Evansville. I attended a lesbian wedding/25th anniversary party in Bowling Green. A clown man was caught in the park near my new apartment. Oh, and tomorrow I will go to a Rand Paul town hall meeting in Owensboro to confront him for being a complete jerkwad. Oh, and there’s been two of the most absurd Presidential debates in US history. I watched both of them. Stupid me.

 

In the middle of night, I struggled to sleep. I struggled to breathe. It was a mild panic attack. I remembered these from the past. They always happened in the middle of the night. Just me and my thoughts. My body panicking because I wouldn’t erupt screaming “WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?”

 

Intellectually, you tell yourself it will be okay. And maybe it will but the body’s nervous system hasn’t process all this craziness. The surge in activity. The terror in watching Donald Trump be anywhere near the Presidency.

 

I am very happy about moving to Whitesville. I was thrilled to attend my friends’ wedding. It was a great party. They had a taco bar, a biscuit bar, a popcorn bar, a photo booth, a DJ and some bands. It’s a shame gay marriage wasn’t legal until last year, meanwhile Donald Trump could have three marriages in that time. Fucking hell. Trumptrumpytrump. I hate that man.

 

HE CANNOT GO ONE SINGLE DAY WITHOUT CAUSING A CATASTROPHE.

 

THE VERY IDEA THAT GUYS TALK LIKE THAT IN PRIVATE. LIKE WE THINK WE CAN JUST GRAB PUSSY WHENEVER. LOCKER ROOM BANTER MY ASS.

 

IF ME AND MY FRIENDS EVER TALKED LIKE THAT, THERE’S NO WAY WE WOULD BE SERIOUS. THERE’S NO WAY A NORMAL PERSON THINKS THEY CAN JUST MOLEST SOMEONE, NO PROBLEM.

 

YEAH YOU PROBABLY CAN GET AWAY WITH A LOT OF SHIT WHEN YOU’RE RICH AND FAMOUS BUT NOT GRABBING PUSSY. YOU CAN PROBABLY GET OUT OF TRAFFIC TICKETS, MAYBE. YOU CAN PROBABLY CUT IN LINE AT THE MOVIES. BUT NOT GRABBING WOMEN’S CROTCHES.

 

LET’S SUPPOSE I WERE DONALD TRUMP AND I SAW ASHLEY JUDD FOR EXAMPLE I WOULDN’T THINK I COULD JUST GRAB HER PUSSY. I MIGHT ASK HER IF SHE WANTED TO PLAY SEVEN MINUTES IN THE CLOSET BUT IF SHE’S LIKE “HELL NO” I JUST PLAY IT OFF LIKE I WAS MAKING A JOKE HA HA FUNNY.

 

THEY FOUND A FUCKING CLOWN GUY NEAR MY APARTMENT LAST WEEK. LIKE MAYBE 500 FEET AWAY. WHEN THE COPS NABBED HIM, HE SAID “I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU GUYS FOUND ME. I’M INVISIBLE.” HE’S A FUCKING BURNOUT. THERE’S NO GREAT SCHEME BEHIND THIS CLOWN THING. IT’S JUST TOWNIE BURNOUTS GETTING THEIR KICKS.

 

RAND PAUL HAS DITCHED KENTUCKY FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS BECAUSE HE WANTED TO BE PRESIDENT. HE TURFED OUT IN SPRING. TRUMP SAID RAND PAUL WAS TOO UGLY TO BE ON THE STAGE WITH HIM LAST YEAR.

 

FUCKING TRUMP MADE RAND PAUL LOOK REASONABLE. RAND PAUL IS MERELY STATING IN SEPT. ’15 WHAT EVERYONE IN OCT. ’16 IS STILL SAYING. WE THOUGHT THIS SHIT WOULD BE OVER BY NOW AND HILLARY WOULD BE DEBATING JEB! OR SOME OTHER BORING FUCKWIT.

 

I’m sorry, Sen. Paul. I’m going to say something about nice about you now. You are a fine eye doctor. Also, I’ll take this opportunity to apologize for making fun of your hair. Unlike Donald Trump’s, your hair is actually yours. However, I still will vote for Jim Gray to take your place in Washington. You’ve fought to only have one debate this election cycle with Gray and it’s on Halloween night. In 2010 against Jack Conway, you had five debates. You are playing Ditka-ball until Election Day, running out the clock. Any football fan can tell you Ditka-ball sucks.
