The Golden Shower

Something interesting

Somebody please stop me. I mean right now. Because, I am having more fun than the law allows. Never did I ever imagine in my life that at this advanced age I would be having this much fun. It must be a sin somewhere. Just what was on that third tablet Moses brought down from the mountain, the one he dropped and broke? I was always sure the broken tablet contained admonition against driving slow in the fast lane. Now I’m certain there was also one that said, “Though shalt not have too much fun at Donald Trump’s expense.”

No lightning bolts from above? OK, then let the fun resume!

Watching yesterday’s edition of ABC World News Tonight with David Muir I was having trouble, couldn’t stop giggling. Here’s what I saw. Images are screen shots from Hulu. I’ve pasted on some snippets of the dialog.

Retired (fired) Lieutenant General (that’s three stars) Michael Flynn was soon hired by the new President Donald J. Trump as his National Security Advisor. He was almost as soon fired by President Donald J. Trump for lying to Vice President Mike Pence, having overlooked a major no-no in Trump politics. Lying to the American Public and to members of Congress is part of the game in the Trump presidency, but lying to Trump and Trump’s hand-picked successor, that is verboten! Incidentally, General Flynn was fired by the previous President of the United States from his job as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, partly due to his loose association with facts. An item from The New York Times attempts to explain:

Mr. Trump and General Flynn both see themselves as brash outsiders who hustled their way to the big time. They both post on Twitter often about their own successes, and they have both at times crossed the line into outright Islamophobia.

They also both exhibit a loose relationship with facts: General Flynn, for instance, has said that Shariah, or Islamic law, is spreading in the United States (it is not). His dubious assertions are so common that when he ran the Defense Intelligence Agency, subordinates came up with a name for the phenomenon: They called them “Flynn facts.”

All told, General Flynn should have been a good fit in the Trump administration, except that embarrassing the SiC (Snowflake-in-Chief) is a no-no.

Now, to my immense delight, the business that got General Flynn fired most recently has come to a pleasant boil, and the  United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has become interested in talking to General Flynn concerning his, and the Trump campaign’s, relationship with the Russian government under Vladimir Putin. Indications so far are that this relationship has been up close and personal. The House Committee wants to know more about the Russian government’s meddling in the 2016 elections and particularly whether there was any collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign. A dossier, prepared by former British spy Christopher Steel, is damning on the current president, providing it contains an ounce of truth:

That’s my transcription of the PDF document, including the use of all caps and absence of periods at the end of sentences. A paragraph numbered 3 contains specific and unsubstantiated details of Trumps activities while in Russia:

However, there were other aspects to TRUMP’s engagement with the Russian authorities. One which had borne fruit for them was to exploit TRUMP’s person  obsessions and sexual perversion in order to  obtain suitable ‘kompromat’ (compromising material) on him. According to Source D, where s/he had been present, TRUMP’s perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew president and Mrs OBAMA (whom he hated) had stayed on  one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him. the hotel was known to be under FSB control  with microphones and concealed cameras in all the main rooms to record anything they wanted to.

Incidentally, that paragraph is the origin of the title for this series of posts.

General Flynn has now announced that he will come before the Committee, and he will testify, and he will have juicy knowledge to report. But first he wants immunity from prosecution. And that is what is so hilarious.

Yes, I’ll take that card. Hit me one more time.

Yes, that’s what I have been waiting to hear. That is what is driving me crazy with glee in my old age. Keep it coming.

And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.
