The Deplorables

Episode 10 Of The Continuing Adventures Of An American Crime Family

This is the stuff that keeps me going. This morning I received the following from “Official Trump Polling.”

John,

Do you want to know the truth?

Democrats and the Fake News media aren’t pursuing this Impeachment War because President Trump did something wrong, they’re pursuing it because they’re afraid he’s going to win the election in November.

To be fair, how could they not be worried about that? America and its citizens have been WINNING like never before and it’s all thanks to President Trump’s America FIRST agenda.

We know the Lamestream media won’t ever tell you the truth about the great work that the President and his administration are doing, especially not when the Democrats are crying ‘impeachment…’ and that’s why we’re reaching out.

I put it in bold typeface to make it stand out. We all know this is going to end with a request for a campaign contribution. They start by insulting me.

First they ask if I want to know the truth. I’m thinking this is an abstract question, since the last time I looked the Trump organization is short on that elusive substance. I will plow forward.

Yes, there it is again. “The FAKE News media.” Where would the Trump presidency be at this point without this classic phrase. They have pulled a lot of mileage out of it. The rubber is about worn off the tread.

And there is “the Lamestream media.” When the guy pitching to you pulls this out of his bag you know he has got to be right, because this argument is unassailable. I am telling you, it is game over.

Now let’s go to the video tape. I have it. Keep reading.

And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.

Episode 9 Of The Continuing Adventures Of An American Crime Family

It’s this kind of thing that gets me up in the morning. Being retired seven years, I am cannot succumb to the temptation to spend a day lying on my back. Thank you, President Donald Trump. And thank you, President Donald Trump Jr. I received this email from the First Son (had his name in the return address):

John,

After a month of tantrums and trying to get Republicans to agree to her INSANE rules, Nancy Pelosi has finally admitted defeat and sent the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate.

Nancy was so eager to undo the 2016 election results that she rammed a fake impeachment SCAM through without ANY facts or evidence.

Now she’s TERRIFIED that the American people will learn the truth that President Trump did NOTHING WRONG.

She’s counting on the FAKE NEWS to continue LYING to the American people. That’s why we need supporters like YOU to join the Official 2020 Impeachment Defense Task Force TODAY.

In 2019, the Impeachment Defense Task Force defended my father against every bogus attack that the Radical Left threw at us. That’s why we are now launching the 2020 Impeachment Defense Task Force.

And then Trump Jr. asks for money. This from the family that promised to underwrite their own campaign. And that Mexico would pay for the wall.

I particularly enjoy the reference to Nancy Pelosi’s “tantrums.”

I hope the President of the United States never stoops to the level of Nancy Pelosi.

I continue to marvel at Junior’s calm and reasoned language. I am particularly impressed by the way he exposes the “fake impeachment SCAM.” More so, “without ANY facts or evidence.”

And to be sure, “President Trump did NOTHING WRONG.” I mean, the family with a history of fraud and deceit has by now reformed its ways and is through with doing that kind of shit.

And I’m going to wrap it up here. Donald Trump Jr. has a good case going. After all, the guy who spent his life lying, stiffing business associates, concocting fake endorsements of himself, associating with crooks and liars just has to be telling the truth by now.

And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.

Episode 8 Of The Continuing Saga Of An American Crime Family

Thanks to comedians again. When the senses become so offended that nothing palatable can be perceived, comedians manage to pull mirth out of a dung heap. Stephen Colbert is an ace at this, or possibly it’s his writers. Anyhow, the impeachment trial of President Trump is being launched today, and Colbert’s take is refreshing.

For now I’m not going into Donald Trump’s high crimes and misdemeanors. In fairness to the once and impeached president, I will present what I know of his defense. In short, he didn’t do it. And even if he did, he didn’t mean it. And if he did mean it, then it wasn’t a crime. And if it was a crime, then that’s all right because things happen.

The President’s legal team comprises some of the top constitutional minds in the country. One of them has weighed in with the well thought out conclusion that Mr. Trump should not be convicted, because what he did do does not amount to a crime.

See, you need proof of an actual crime. So what’s this mess all about? In case this argument is not convincing, comedian Colbert provided the opinion of a well-respected professor of law.

All right, That may not be the respected legal scholar we were fishing for. Anyhow, there are others. Here is one.

So, as I said, Mr. Trump’s legal team has the matter well in hand. And, on the off chance they do not have it well in hand, then you need to keep in mind that “things happen.”

And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.

Episode 7 Of The Continuing Saga Of An American Crime Family

The following is an excerpt I received from “Maggy Smith,” writing on behalf of the Heritage Foundation. “Margaret Smith is a senior associate for Acquisition and Membership Programs at The Heritage Foundation.”

John,

2020 is already shaping up to be a challenging year for conservatives. Liberals in Congress are ready to undo the policy victories of recent years, and go even farther than they have before.

To protect our conservative policy victories and win new ones, we have to stick together this year and stay motivated.

And she requests a donation.

Of course, the Heritage Foundation is this country’s premier promoter of American conservative values, which sort of indicates the email was misdirected. I began to distance myself from American conservatism over 50 years ago with the advent of Ronald Reagan and subsequently Richard Nixon. At one time there may have been sincere concern for family values, and individual liberty, but over time American conservatism has come to represent the right of wealth and the defiance of basic truths. Most recently the organization’s support for a corrupt presidency has been a reflection of depths to which this once noble ideal has fallen.

Unfortunately it is true you are known by the company you keep. Something has been said about lying down with dogs. One thing Hillary Clinton got right was her comment about a basket of deplorables. We have here a situation from which conservatism may not recover for decades.

The Deplorables

Episode 6 Of The Continuing Saga Of An American Crime Family

Somebody appears to be getting very worried about now. I know this because I am receiving a boat load of these (all right, a few) every day. It appears to be from President Donald J. Trump.

BREAKING: VOTE TO SEND ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT TO THE SENATE TODAY

John,

Well it’s about time.

Nancy and her Liberal Puppets IMPEACHED ME a month ago and have since been holding the Articles of Impeachment HOSTAGE.

Democrats in the House will vote on sending the Impeachment Articles to the Senate today, where this HOAX will finally go to trial and show the world who she really is: a LYING and MANIPULATIVE HYPOCRITE who never had any evidence of wrongdoing against me.

I DID NOTHING WRONG. READ THE TRANSCRIPT.

Their pathetic attempts to remove me from office are not only an attack on me, but they’re an attack on YOU. They’re trying to UNDO the 2016 Election like it never happened by SILENCING MILLIONS of votes. We can’t let them get away with this, John.

That’s why I’ve activated an EMERGENCY 2020 IMPEACHMENT DEFENSE FUND, and I’m calling on my most fierce and loyal defenders to step up to the front lines of this nasty battle and FIGHT BACK.

There follows a request for donations. This from a candidate who promised to fund his own campaign. And, yes, I did read the transcript. At the very least it reveals you to be a lying cheat and a coward, to boot. By extension, the public is getting the idea you head up an American white collar crime family.

Sometimes comedians know how to say it best. Here is something from Stephen Colbert, who entertained us last night with clips from various news outlets. This in light of comments coming out of one of your henchmen, Lev Parnas, who appears to be getting ready to take you down with him. To be sure,it’s for sure you have no knowledge of this individual.

Right. I got that.

I said I got that.

Here is what else I got.

How much of this is it going to take before your Republican patsies follow the way of Parnas and decide to cut a deal?

Friday Funny

Number 198 of a series

So it’s Tuesday when I’m thinking about scheduling some blog posts for the remainder of the week. As I write this it’s early morning, and the FACT luncheon is scheduled for 1:00 p.m., and I don’t want to get too deep into something and have to break it off when time comes to head out for the Asian Star. And my quandary was thus: work up a blog post or catch something on TV.

TV won out, because it’s a dark and wet morning, and the house is quiet and ideal for chilling out. So I brought up the next episode of Bones, a series that ran 12 seasons and is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. And that sets the stage for this week’s Friday Funny.

The title character is Temperance Brennan (“Bones”), a brilliant and glamorous forensic anthropologist who works with FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth. By season 8 she has bedded down with Booth and has had a baby. Framed by a psychotic serial killer she hid out from the law, taking the newborn with her, for three months while her friends back at the fictional Jeffersonian Institute worked to clear her name. Now in episode 4 of the season she is back sharing a house with Booth, and the two are having a conversation in the kitchen. She is drawing up a list of qualifications, because she is thinking about what it would take to run for President of the United States.

Booth reminds her one of the qualifications she needs to list would be the time she spent on the lam with law enforcement agencies scouring the country for her. Then comes this remarkable snippet of conversation. She says:

You think I would be a bad candidate? Because Donald Trump is thinking about running.

Yes, Bones, apparently a criminal past is now one of the measures that will get you elected President of the United States. And that is so funny.

Take the weekend off.

The Deplorables

Episode 5 Of The Continuing Adventures Of An American Crime Family

The shadow of an American crime family continues to fall upon the state of Texas. This from the campaign of Texas Senator John Cornyn.

John,

Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment effort has been wrong for our country from day one. It was a rushed process. It was an incomplete process. It was a process that identified a punishment, then searched for a crime… It was a complete circus, and Nancy was the ringleader.

The Democrats have been at this charade for years. First it was Russian collusion, then obstruction of justice, then campaign finance law abuses and then violations of the “Emoluments Clause.” In each case, these outrageous accusations turned out to be untrue. Yet Democrats only looked harder for another excuse.

Now, we find ourselves heading into an official trial which could result in President Trump’s expulsion from office. Having tried every other trick in the book, the Democrats have now pushed our Constitution to the limit.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… As someone who served as a district judge, state Supreme Court justice and Texas Attorney General and now sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, I want to know…

  • What happened to the presumption of innocence in all this?
  • While Democrats say no one is above the law, why can’t they point to the law they think the President violated?
  • What happened to fundamental fairness? The House sat behind closed doors and concentrated all control in the hands of six Democratic committee chairmen. Where is the fairness?

As your Senator, I will be called upon to respond after House Democrats have rushed to impeach the President. That day has arrived.  

Chuck Schumer and Liberal interest groups are already stepping up efforts to pressure me. They want to use impeachment as a tool to beat me and turn Texas blue.

But John, I won’t budge.

I will start with the presumption of the President’s innocence. I will neither be sucked in nor fan the flames of wild rumors and political accusations.

The next few days represent a critical moment for America, and I need to know that you’re with me as I stand firm as the firewall between outrageous partisanship and the Constitution of the United States.

And then he asks for money.

There is so much to unravel here; I wonder where to begin. How about the first paragraph? “Wrong for our country?” How about right for our country? A president who flouted the law all his life and then carried that those practices into the highest office of the land has now been brought to answer for crimes he committed while in office. Wrong for our country? We now begin to wonder whether it is you who are wrong for this country. You want me to contribute to your election campaign, and you do it while insulting my intelligence. You have mistaken me for one of your supporters from the lower reaches of Texas society. You need to aim higher.

Speaker Pelosi searched for a crime? Are you awake yet, Senator? The crime came barreling to the forefront in a manner that was impossible to ignore. What does this criminal president need to do to gain your disrespect?

You mention collusion with a foreign government, then you mention obstruction of justice, campaign finance law abuse and violations of the Emoluments Clause—all apparent to even casual observers. Here is a president who sucks up to a sworn enemy of the United States, manages illegal payments to assist in his campaign and profits monetarily from his position of power. These are all crimes worthy of prosecution. And you appear to deny anything wrong is going on. You say these accusations turned out to be untrue. It would appear you have only a loose acquaintance with the truth, Senator.

Yes, we are now headed into a trial in the Senate, but it is a trial that will not result in the president’s removal from office. He will not be removed, because you and your party affiliates will ignore the evidence and will vote to continue the ongoing travesty in the White House. You will be well-remembered.

You speak of presumption of innocence, and you trumpet your past legal experience. You know better, and still you persist. Prosecution of a criminal is not a violation of presumption of innocence. If it were, no criminal would ever be prosecuted.

You say the Democrats cannot point to a law the president violated. Really? Last time I looked, obstruction of justice and obstruction of Congress are laws the president appears to have violated. And do not speak to me of fundamental fairness when you and your cohorts appear set on not allowing any witnesses to appear at the impeachment trial.

You say Democrats are stepping up efforts to pressure you, and they want to use impeachment as a tool to beat you in the 2020 election. And you are playing into their hands by continuing to suborn criminal activity in the White House. Keep this up, and Texas will turn blue, and you can watch the inauguration next January on television.

Abusing Science

Number 53 of a series

The sequence number above indicates I have been posting these for slightly over a year. What I like to do most is to post some challenge that has the appearance of earnestness. Then there are those that are outright silly. Here is one:

Laura Ingraham dismisses climate change: Receding glaciers are “why we have the Rocky Mountains”

Ingraham: “I mean the glaciers, when they recede, they leave pointed peaks”

RAYMOND ARROYO: We almost did the story the other night, the Glacier National Park have signs up that says by 2020 these glaciers will have melted. They’re still there. So now they’re changing the signage because, apparently, the climate forecast were off. I’d say.

LAURA INGRAHAM: Let me say, north of Glacier in Jasper and the Canadian Rockies, I did walk on some of those glaciers and they are receding. But the glaciers in the Rocky Mountains receded which is why we have the Rocky Mountains. I mean the glaciers, when they recede, they leave pointed peaks.

ARROYO: It’s called nature. It happens.

Laura Ingraham, as you well know, is an ultra-conservative supporter of Donald Trump and also a regular commentator for Fox News. Given that, her views on anthropogenic global warming are to be expected. Denial of AGW is a theme that runs strongly in conservative thinking.And, yes, it is glaciers that produce those mountain peaks. Without the action of ice (glaciers) the Rocky Mountains would be hump-shaped. Ice (glaciers) forming on the high peaks leaves steep sides when it calves off. And that is nature.

What is also nature is that when people increase the CO2 content in the atmosphere the atmosphere retains more heat, and the climate gets warmer. And glaciers recede.

My amateur scientist view is the loss of some glaciers is aesthetic. Denuded mountains are not going to as picturesque. Other glaciers are critical. The Greenland ice cap is this kind of ice, and it is melting at ever faster rates. Not today and not tomorrow, but if the Greenland ice cap were to completely melt the world ocean level would rise about 20 feet. If the Antarctic ice cap melts the ocean level will rise 200 feet. That is not a matter of aesthetics. Major cities would have to relocate hundreds of years before their presumed shelf life has expired.

Laura Ingraham makes a baneful collection of thoughts on people of ethnicity and religion that does not match hers, and this is stupid, as well. We are not surprised she has wrong ideas about science.

The Deplorables

Further Adventures Of An American Crime Family, Episode 4

This series is devoted to the continuing saga of an American crime family and the people who condone them and protect them. Here is something from Texas Governor Greg Abbott:

Friend,

As our nation continues to face a major crisis at the southern border, I remain ready to do whatever it takes to stop the flow of illegal immigration and cartel-related crime through Texas.

That’s why I authorized the state of Texas to spend almost $1 billion more to do what the reprobates in Congress won’t do: secure the border.

  • Funding 500 Department of Public Safety officers to help with border security in addition to ordering 1,000 more National Guard troops to Texas’ southern border
  • Funding more boats on the Rio Grande River to patrol popular crossing areas
  • Funding detection equipment to ensure that there are more eyes in the skies watching for drug cartels and “coyotes” who smuggle people into our country

But radical socialists in Washington, DC don’t see a problem. Instead, they’ve called for eliminating ICE and shutting down the entire Department of Homeland Security!

If we don’t take action against the Democrats’ “open-borders” agenda NOW, I’m afraid for the future of Texas and our nation.

And that’s why I’m asking for your support.

I’m fighting back to make sure we keep Texas red up and down the ballot. I won’t let the Democrats take Texas.

Following the above, he asks me for money. And he addresses me as “Friend.” This is a major indication he has no clue as to what is going on. But there is more.

Our nation faces a major crisis at our southern border? He said that. Governor, what is apparent is that there is a crisis at the southern border, but it is not the major crisis you conjure it up to be. What is more apparent is the “crisis” is one manufactured by the people you cotton up to and further that it is aimed at an audience that dwells in the lower reaches of Texas society. I offer this suggestion. If you want a favor from me the way to start is to not insult my intelligence. Enough said about that.

Governor Abbott wants to “keep Texas red up and down the ballot.” He wants to keep Democrats from taking over Texas. Heads up on this. The way to keep Democrats from taking over Texas is to get to work fixing up the Republican image. Start with knocking off all this praise and support for the American crime family in the White House.

Then come to talk to me.

The Deplorables

An American Crime Family, Episode 3

No need for Texans to glance over to the East Coast to appreciate a modern American crime family. We have our very on Senator John Cornyn to carry the torch. I get regular email from the senator, trumpeting his subservience. Here is the most recent.

Soleimani is dead.

An active plotter of terrorist attacks against U.S. citizens is neutralized.

The world is a safer place without him. Period.

Unlike the previous administration, President Trump took decisive action to STOP evil in its tracks. He promoted peace through strength and defended our nation from attack.

But the radical left doesn’t see it that way. 

This is about purveyors of evil vs the United States. It shouldn’t be so difficult for radical leftists to decide which side they’re on…

He speaks, of course of Qasem Soleimani, late general of the Iranian army. As the Texas senator states, Soleimani was, indeed a bad dude and a sworn enemy of the United States. Being both of these was not alone sufficient reason for terminating him with prejudice. What was good reason was that Soleimani acted on his impulses, and it is a good thing for us he is gone.

That said, there is something to say about Senator Cornyn’s comments. The radical left doesn’t see it that way? Apologies all around, but I consider myself to be the radical left, and I do see it that way. The senator doth protest too much, methinks. One gets the idea he is speaking thus to curry favor with those deplorables who cling to a criminal president.

Senator Cornyn goes further. He posts tweets from perceived leftists.

The first is from footballer and black discrimination activists Colin Kaepernick, saying:
America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad. American militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the non white world.

This language is perceived as being unpatriotic, something Kaepernick has long been considered by the white supremacist right wing. But Kaepernick is retweeting from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar:

The President of the United States is threatening to commit war crimes on Twitter.

God help us all! #25thAmendment twitter.com/realdonaldtrum…

For the record, the President of the United States was threatening to commit war crimes up until the time saner heads nearby insisted he refrain from doing so. And our own deplorable, representing the state of Texas, is coming down on the wrong side of the issue, as we should expect.

The Deplorables

An American Crime Family, Episode 2

Somebody needs to stop me. I may have a serious addiction problem. I can’t stop re-posting this stuff I receive from the Trump camp. Here’s the most recent:

John,

Can you believe it’s already been three years since President Trump obliterated Crooked Hillary in the 2016 Election and was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States? Finally, we have a President who is committed to putting AMERICA FIRST.

You’ll never hear it from the lamestream media and their Democratic Partners, but the President is WINNING BIG on behalf of every day Patriots, LIKE YOU, and his approval ratings only continue to skyrocket among the American People.

America is WINNING again like never before thanks to his America FIRST agenda. Sadly, the Left is so obsessed with HATING the President that they’ll never tell you the truth.

But, President Trump has NEVER cared what the Fake News media and the Corrupt Democrats think – he only cares what YOU think. We just launched our FIRST official poll of 2020, and the President has requested we reach out to his most loyal supporters to get their input.

This is from a concern titled “Official Trump Polling.” I mean, you have to assume they are part of the Trump team, because who would claim to be who wasn’t?

Anyhow, following this they wanted me to complete a poll on President Trump’s job performance. I am 100% sure taking the poll would have lead to a solicitation for money. I insist it is 100%, even though I did not follow through and take the poll. That’s because this is how all these solicitations go. I’m not talking just about only Trump critters, because the Democrats do it, as well.

Anyhow, what I am addicted to is analyzing this stuff about our very own American crime family. So, let’s get started. Start with “Can you believe it’s already been three years since President Trump obliterated Crooked Hillary in the 2016 Election …?” People, it’s a new definition of “obliterated.” I only hope the next time I meet up with a mugger along a dark and lonely street I get “obliterated” in the same manner. See? This item gets funny starting with the first sentence.

And I am glad we finally have a president who puts AMERICA FIRST.

About the second paragraph I began to realize this was not aimed at a person like me. When a writer uses phraseology such as, “You’ll never hear it from the lamestream media and their Democratic Partners…,” then you know the target reader is somebody who has a loose grip on reality and who tends to think with his gonads. I mean, “lamestream media?” Who talks like that outside a junior high school playground? The “lamestream media” supposedly points to “mainstream media,” the place where professional journalist work every day at telling us what is going on in the world.

And, after all that I am so glad our president’s ratings continue to skyrocket.

I am also glad to hear “America is winning again.” Once again, language is being redefined.

“Sadly, the Left is so obsessed with HATING the President that they’ll never tell you the truth.” Oops!

“But, President Trump has NEVER cared what the Fake News media and the Corrupt Democrats think…” Does not cared what the Fake News media and Corrupt Democrats think? Can you say that one more time with feeling?

Stand by for further adventures of your favorite American crime family.

A new year, a new family series

 

While it lasts, I have some people in Washington I’m paying to provide me with this material. Let’s get started.

John,

2020 is going to be a defining year for our country.

While President Trump is fighting day and night to Keep America Great, Democrats like Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, and Nancy Pelosi are trying to tear our nation apart with their endless corruption and LIES.

The Radical Left has the FAKE NEWS — and even had a corrupt FBI — on their side.

That’s why we need YOU to help us fight back against the relentless lies and attacks, John.

That’s from First Son, Donald Trump, Jr. It showed up in my in mail on Monday, and it’s an absolute hoot. It requires some dissection. Start with keeping America great.

Junior, this is what your father means by “keeping America great.” Please do not show me un-great.

Democrats are trying to tear our country apart. Could be. Let’s have a look.

If your aim is to keep America from tearing our country apart, then you are too late. That train has already left the station.

“Endless corruption and lies?” I should say.

Junior, we will be forever indebted to you for pointing this out to us.

At this point I will break it off. Is there really a need to get into Trump Junior’s assertions about FAKE NEWS and a corrupt FBI? Keep reading. There will be more to come in the continuing saga of The Deplorables.

Yes! Lock her up! Lock her up! And now for the truly funny part.

“Dear Clintons, You know what’s deplorable? Being Impeached!!! #BasketOfDeplorables,” Trump Jr. posted to Twitter on Sept. 10, 2016.

People, these are times when you would like to live forever. It is going to be a wonderful New Year.

Happy New Year and to hopes of seeing a new winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Is our glorious president finally getting the reward he so much deserves for de-escalating tensions with the rogue DPRK? Things are looking better and better all the time:

Kim Jong-un said North Korea was free of a self-imposed pause on testing nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, which President Trump had called a diplomatic victory.

I guess not.

This is your president speaking.

Number 240 in a series

And now a few words from the President of the United States.

“I never understood wind. You know, I know windmills very much. I’ve studied it better than anybody,” he said. (You can read the full White House transcript of his remarks here.)

Coming from a wild-eyed creature standing on a soap box in some city park, this would be taken as  off-center crazy. Coming from the President of the United States, this should be taken as fallout shelter scary. Is it time for us to hunker down yet?
