GOP RIP, JR.,






I have been setting traps over the last couple of days, realizing that I have to eat some crow after the election of Donald Trump as our President-Elect... My main problem is this area is not a habitat for crows, they were muscled out by ravens and magpies, and these shape-shifting ravens are pretty smart... My cat won't hunt one down for me, even though he has de-bunnyfied the neighborhood and finds any field mouse that comes within 100 yards of our house...


I really didn't want to write anything more about Donald until the madness settled down, but after 6 months in office, the craziness is worse than before. It seems that the only calming factor on Mr. Trump is the president of France and a military parade in his honor...

What I have wanted to write about are the old stories of Donald's golden showers and the horrific background of Jared Kushner's family, which explains why he is such a squirrely, lying little bastard... and illuminates Ivanka's taste in men.

Rumors say that Russian intelligence has been cultivating Donald Trump and his family ever since
Donald became a voice in the birther movement, and because they were gullible and not  very bright. In 2013 the Miss Universe pageant was held in Moscow, and Donald made many friends and business contacts, even exploring plans to build a Trump Tower. He stayed at the Ritz-Carlton, an old Communist era hotel refurbished to modern tastes. It was where all visiting officials and businessmen were put up, and rumors were that every room was bugged for audio and video. Further rumors were that some rooms remained bugged for Putin's special friends...

So, Donald Trump checks in and insists on staying in the room where Barack and Michele Obama had, when they had visited Moscow. An odd request coming from someone who professed to dislike the Obamas... Donald then proceeded to hire two prostitutes to come to his room for the purpose of bathing him in a golden shower. OK, a golden shower is when the prostitute (or any loved one) proceeds to piss all over you. This act was supposedly taped and a copy resides in the Kremlin, and might be the reason why Trump has complemented Putin since the day he announced his candidacy for president.

The gentleman who reported this in a 35 page report is an ex-intelligence officer for the British and spent several years stationed in Moscow. Most of the other connections between Donald and other Russians in the report have been proven to be accurate, but we snigger like naïve teenagers when confronted with the piss story, because it's considered to be a perverted fetish, not brought up in a polite setting, relegated to a few smirking late night jokes...




Then there's Jared, who has changed his application for a security clearance more times than Obamacare, every time it's reported that he's had another meeting with Russian officials, after claiming that he had zero contact.

It's said that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, and Jared's father did time in jail for some truly weird and cruel behavior. His brother-in-law was agreeing to give a deposition to federal authorities about some illegal practices he and Jared's father engaged in their real estate firm. Jared's father then went out and hired a prostitute and lured his brother-in-law to a place where he could videotape it, then sent a copy to the guy's wife, his sister. The father is now out of jail and running his real estate firm, trying to get out from under a couple of expensive mistakes that Jared made. But the toxic family atmosphere must be difficult to tolerate, no matter how religious and observant you've become... So, Jared throwing his brother-in-law Donald ,Jr., under the bus over meeting Russian people who keep insisting they have no connections to the Kremlin, is just typical behavior for the Trump relations. On the bright side, neither young Donald or Jared should have a taste for politics once they get out of jail...



It's clear that the Republican Party has to remake itself because the crazies are ruling the roost right now. Not only can they not pass any major legislation, but it's painfully obvious they cannot write legislation, either. Instead, they sat around for nine years with their thumbs up their butts, occasionally shifting their weight from one cheek to the other...

And I really don't know what to do with the Trump base, now that they have woken up. Maybe they will wear themselves out sending all that hate e-mail and death threats, or by combining heroin with their bourbon and moonshine.

Thank God It's Election Day, Rudy Must Be Trump's Fluffer




Hey there, pussy grabbing Americans, tomorrow is the big day, enough time for The Donald to release his tax returns and show us proof how badly the election is rigged. One sex scandal not much reported on is how many times Rudy Giuliani has had to suck off the Donald just so he wouldn't get too angry and excited and stay on course, reading the damned teleprompter at each rally these past few days. What Rudy wouldn't do to have a chance at becoming the next Attorney General...

Pundits are saying that the Donald won't concede the election, but he might take a high-dive off of the Trump Tower...

I'm cynical enough to realize that the GOP will not reorganize themselves into a more inclusive political party with policies that aren't pulled out of Paul Ryan's butthole... What is needed is for a lot of young Bernie Sanders supporters to join the Republican Party and force it kicking and screaming into the 21st Century... All of the rest of this past election cycle is a sad commentary on our political history. Our credibility on the world stage has been trashed, people have been pining to bring back the divine rule of royalty...

I Voted Early, Now Time For the Election Party






I was able to vote early because Colorado allows us to fill out our ballots and mail them in or drop them off at several collection centers around town. We don't trust the mail, so our ballots were dropped off at the county registrar's office... Now all that's left is to continue watching the craziness of these last few days on television and the results on Nov 8. I hope to have a good cigar and some brandy and get lost in the election ferver, constantly switching between news channels. I used to go to the basement of the county building, where the up to date results from local candidates and ballot measures are posted on chalkboards as they come in from each precinct. It gets very busy with representatives from all parties mingling and slinging bullshit.

I expect Donald Trump to lose, despite the closing gap in the poll numbers. A whole bunch of evangelical preachers have been raising The Donald to a holy level, saying God is intervening against Hillary Clinton because she embodies the spirit of Jezebel. And she's been putting up with this kind of demonization for over 30 years... But ever since Sarah Palin was chosen as a running mate for John McCain, the vitriol and violence and slinging outrageous lies have been getting worse.

The worst part of this election has been watching what a horrible person Donald Trump really is, and his children aren't much better. The thought of Donald Jr, Jeff Sessions, Newt Gingrich, and the flat out nutcase Rudy Guiliani having input into the making of the next government is truly frightening, beyond the fringe of Tea Party frightening.

I expect the Republican Party to either dissolve, or actually reorganize itself into a more inclusive and tolerant political party, with the right wing extremists breaking off to form their own American Patriot party. At Fox News, the contracts for Megan Kelly and Bill O'Reilly will end, and they might choose to move on, Kelly to CNN or MSNBC and O'Reilly to the new network that Trump will begin with the Breitbart web site...

Finally, Vladimir Putin Imitates Donald Trump



"Look, I'm very much a fatalist."     - Donald Trump




I haven't written for a few days because my mismanagement of my diabetes medicine almost put me into a coma. I sometimes wonder if I'm trying to commit suicide, but I told myself to wait until my cat passed away and I have no more responsibilities keeping me here, other than this blog, of course...

Much has been written about the imaginary link between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, I have called Mr. Trump a minion of Mr. Putin because of Mr. Trump's admiration for Mr. Putin, which he has expressed several times. So far, that admiration seems to go one direction only, like a bad hair day or an ageing boy band...

But now it seems that Mr. Putin is taking the lead from Donald Trump and has fired his chief of staff, replacing him with a servant who has done such tasks as following Mr. Putin around while carrying his umbrella. Anton Vaino, who really was a faceless minion before his promotion, replaces an old crony, Sergei Ivanov, who also was minister of defense at one time and thought to be a replacement for Mr. Putin before Vlad found a way around his country's term limit laws... Mr. Trump had fired his chief of staff only a couple of months earlier, letting Cory Lendowski become the main Trump apologist at CNN. THAT'S RIGHT, who's the bitch now???

Mr. Putin is slowly replacing his cabinet with former bodyguards and intelligence agents, the kind of people who take steroids and condone the doping of athletes. What if they all were cycling through the same drug during cabinet meetings, and Vlad happened to make a condescending remark, would they go apeshit and tear him to pieces like wild wolverines? Some food for thought...

Meanwhile, The Donald has become a bit morose lately, considering the thought that he might lose the election, or rile a crowd up so much that they tear someone apart like wild wolverines, a metaphor that can serve both Russia and the US... All of the talk of Republicans publically coming out and saying that they cannot support him, ex-intelligence officials saying that he doesn't have the temperament needed to be a president, others saying he is mentally ill, and the pressure to release his tax returns, which would turn more people away from him, has been getting him a tad depressed and wondering if he should just walk away from it all, away from his annoying kids who are even dumber than he is ( oh yeah, except for Ivanka, who can lie just as easily as her father, talking about women's pay and maternity rights at the GOP convention, while omitting the fact that the foreign sweatshops she contracts to make her clothing line don't give time off for anything...), send his dumb trophy wife back to Slovenia to finish her college degree, and spend the rest of his days playing golf and boasting to whomever will listen about how great he was... Actually, not a bad life for someone over 70...

Does Trump Need a Psychiatric Intervention?



We know that there is something seriously wrong with Donald Trump's behavior as the Republican candidate for president, unless you are a supporter, then he can do more wrong, and the more people he pisses off the better... I just figured it was because he was the son of rich parents, grew up being a bully and could pay for the privilege. But I saw a section on Lawrence O'Donnel's show on MSNBC, and today a Democratic House member put up a petition on a website to get a medical intervention and have a doctor look at Donald Trump for narcissistic personality disorder... Below are the official items to look for from the diagnostic manual that is promoted and used by the insurance companies when they reimburse doctors:

DSM-5 criteria for narcissistic personality disorder include these features:
  • Having an exaggerated sense of self-importance
  • Expecting to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
  • Exaggerating your achievements and talents
  • Being preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate
  • Believing that you are superior and can only be understood by or associate with equally special people
  • Requiring constant admiration
  • Having a sense of entitlement
  • Expecting special favors and unquestioning compliance with your expectations
  • Taking advantage of others to get what you want
  • Having an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
  • Being envious of others and believing others envy you
  • Behaving in an arrogant or haughty manner

To qualify for a diagnoses, you need to have at least six out of the nine mentioned above. Donald fulfills all of them. This is why Barack Obama and others have been saying that he doesn't have the healthy mentality required for the office. It also has nothing to do if you are a Hillary supporter or not... A person can function having this disorder, it is quite common among CEO's of large corporations and military generals, but we need to think twice if we want someone acting out in full blown crazy mode in charge of our military and has the nuclear codes and said previously that he might use them. There is medication that helps, maybe it would tone Donald down, make him more tolerable...


It certainly would be a first in modern history that a presidential candidate is forced to be checked out by a shrink. There are many Republicans who are getting off the Trump train, especially after he refused to support Paul Ryan and John McCain, who are both up for re-election, and was abusive and dismissive towards a Muslim family who lost their son by a roadside bomb a few years ago...

The creepy part is that Rudy Guiliani and Newt Gingrich are considered two people who has the most clout with The Donald... I thought that I wouldn't write about Mr. Trump for awhile, but he keeps on shooting himself in his feet, it's amazing that he has any toes left... But then, he still goes out and gets large crowds whose adulation and energy he can feed off of, and they may well clap and cheer at him as he continues to spiral down into a paranoid, narcissistic hell...

I Want a Little Polonium In My Bowl...





The pundits keep on speculating on the amount of hacking and influencing Russia is trying to interfere with our current presidential election. We've all read by now the stories of purported Russian intelligence groups with stupid bear names were rooting around in the DNC email servers and then giving over 3000  email files to WikiLeaks to publish. Julian Assange is holed up still in the Ecuadorian embassy threatening to publish more unless, what, people will get embarrassed by what a political ass they are? Red flags should have been raised by a hack that any sixth grade kid can do...

Granted, the US and Russia have a long, grand tradition of spying on each other over the last 60 years, enough to fill the coffers of Hollywood movie studios and publishing houses everywhere... The current conceit is that Vladimir Putin is enthralled of Donald Trump enough to consider him one of his minions; he actually said that Donald was quite the colorful character, which Donald typically blew up to mean that Putin considered him to be a genius. One could say that the reason Donald feels such an affinity for Mr. Putin is because they both singlehandedly are trying to make their countries great again, while fleecing millions from the public in the process.

And yes, we, too, have hacked into Russian servers for information, though nowadays it's a lot easier to wait until an ex-premier moves to the US or an oligarch buys a basketball franchise... In fact, I wonder where Mr Putin has selected his next estate, will it be in Florida or California? Remember Vlad, it's still easier to send ricin through our mails than to send a minion with one of those clunky polonium isotopes to act as an ice cube...

This story will last until The Donald shoots himself in the foot again. He cannot stop himself from over-reacting to the slightest criticism. My favorites from the DNC was that every time someone gave a good speech the Trump minions would say how it was plagiarized...

DNC Day 4: Hillary Survives Expectations



The burning question for this evening was: could Hillary hit it out of the park with her acceptance speech? The answer is no, of course she couldn't, nobody could compete with Barack and Michelle Obama, but she did give one of the better ones of her career. And she doesn't like giving speeches...

We had been on thunderstorm watch all evening, and right when it was time for her speech, the electricity went off. I figured that it was a local Republican plot engineered by Doug Lamborn, but that would be giving him far too much credit in planning and initiative... So I went next door, where my neighbor had lit candles and had a battery powered radio. We didn't make s'mores, but I was happy to get a bottle of cold water...

Hillary was still speaking when the power came back on and the cable had cycled back on. Given the reaction to the convention as a whole, it should be a done deal to elect our first woman president. But there is this nagging in the back of my head, warning me about the power of negativity, how it's so much easier to take things apart and smash things than build something, especially if you want a consensus before moving on...

If Hillary can fulfill one or two of her progressive promises, it will be a minor miracle, unless more Democrats win in the Senate and in the House, otherwise she will be banging her head against the wall as much as Obama did.

The Senate will be without the freshmen Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. People say that Ted will be the front-runner in four years, but I think he will sink thankfully into obscurity while more moderate heads try and rebuild the Republican Party into something that doesn't resemble a riot at the insane asylum, warning, warning, the inmates have taken over...

Donald Trump tried to piss on her parade by tweeting up a storm, but was generally ignored... So, he took his wife's web site off of the internet. This way she sure won't screw up again, and he can control what she says from now on just like he has to control everything else in her life. Hope you got a good prenup Melania, because if Donald loses he will soon be divorcing you...

Well, on towards election twilight, where the candidates seem dimmer and less clear the more I contemplate them, ghosts of their rhetorical pasts, only brightened momentarily by a presidential debate. And really, someone needs to pry his cellphone from Donald's tiny, tiny hands, and cancel his tweet account. Let him start watching porn late at night like any normal 70 year old guy...
