The Folly of Amateurish American Diplomacy

By RF Schatten


"You learn, just as you learn good manners, how to approach things with a certain amount of Diplomacy"  ~~~  Robert MacNeil

When you have Kim Jong-un & Donald Trump; 2 impulsive Psychopaths, dreadfully Callow, Egocentrics, and raving stark Narcissists…what can ever possibly go wrong??

Admiration for someone's "Leadership" in the World, should be based on his or her positive accomplishments, not on a person's constant failures in Foreign Affairs throughout the World.
An Administration without a solitary sense of Wisdom or Moral Leadership cannot Lead a Nation…and consequently, because of their actions…cannot ever lead a Free World!
Diplomacy? In the Era of Trump? Where Immorality, Obscenity, crass Disrespect, Bad Manners, and Systematic Hatred reigns supreme?…Diplomacy, like Decorum…is a nasty dirty word in TrumpWorld! 

Now, you got two Man-Babies holding pissing contests over waging Nuclear Annihilation. And all just for that ever-present "Limelight"!…they're both passionately in love with themselves, and in love with those Lights & Cameras. And the Notoriety that comes along…no matter whether it's the Fame or the Infamy! 
There have been many models studied on ways Thermal Nuclear Warfare might be started...but, in today's world, where nothing is Traditional or Rational? Who would've ever thought both sides would be disputing, who wants to end the World, 1st??

Yes! Both sides are led by Childish, Egocentric, Spoiled Temperamental Brats! Two Big Fat grown-up Bullies, both ironically, with really tiny little hands. And just to think; These whiney little Man-Childs might be responsible for the end of this world!
Both, extremely Immoral, obscene human beings, whom neither of them understands a single meaning of Critical Thinking, nor Logic or Rationality. These two ding dongs? Basically, neither of them knows how to Reason whatsoever! Not good! when these 2 little fat clowns have matching Red Buttons at their disposal! 

What civilized people understand and imbecile Trumpers can't ever get it right; If the sh*t ever hits the fan for North Korea, and the United States uses a Preemptive 1st Strike with Nuclear Warheads, the fanatic North will not ever surrender! If death is imminent, they'll simply Nuke neighboring Seoul, South Korea…and maybe Japan…before they're all vaporized together and cease to exist. "We may be Dead, but we still Win...argh"!!
Yea! it's from a little movie that proves; all the Nuclear Power… without an Intelligent Leadership, doesn't really mean diddly squat! 

Does anyone know the cost of waging war with North Korea? The Physical and Financial Loss? The tragic death toll in the Multimillions…at least 25 Million in North Korea? and 51.44 in South Korea?
Don't forget, South Korea is among the world giants in the Auto Industry, the Tech Industry, in Commerce, and Banks! Their GDP (PPP) for 2017 is $2,030 Billion!!
It'll be the Crash heard around the World! The Human Loss! and the Collapse of the World's Markets! A financial devastation unequal to anything ever seen before.
The US? what's left of us?...it'll take 100 years or more, rebuilding our Society to make America Great Again!

Our problem?...and the World's?...is that we have 2 Dysfunctional Human Beings!!!
One rules a Country cause he's the 3rd "God" of North Korea, following his Father, Kim Jung-iI (God II), a famed collector of Porno Flicks...and his equally crazy Grandfather, Kim il-Sung, the originator of the horsesh*t tale on how he became Korea's chosen God! This rotund little guy is sure following in the footsteps of a lot of horsesh*t!
The Other? A Bullsh*t Artist, Con-Artist, Liar extraordinaire, incredibly incompetent, and a seriously inept and unqualified Humanoid to lead a Nation!...he's not even qualified to by a Father!

Don the Con is a cheat, who cheated in Politics like he cheats in life…all his life...and had Russia hand him an election, without getting a Majority!
America's Leader is selected by the Majority of the American Voters….technically, he may be a leader in "Name Only" or the Leader of the entire Universe within his own imagination!…but he's not the true Leader of this Nation! The majority of the United States has already voiced 'that' opinion by who they voted for! And if the Russians did assist this Orange Clown, the legitimacy of the Election is thrown out the window…null and void! Is Trump an Illegitimate President??

When all this drama ends, if he gets his Nuke War? I 'will' guarantee you; a man disguised as a Mexican with a big mustache and a big Mexican hat will start inquiring on a Travel Visa & a one-way ticket to South America...under the name; "D. Drumpf".
All those good so-called "moral" Christians may get their Armageddon opportunity, after all, thanks to their love for an Idiot, who's always full of sound & fury but never actually signifying, absolutely nothing!

America's biggest problem…and complication…in negotiating Foreign Policy, is Donald Trump.
A man who doesn't listen to anyone doesn't take advice from anyone! and who truly believes he's the World's Greatest Salesman!
Well? At least, He's proving one thing; He's the World's Greatest Sucker…a schmuck, who's become the easiest "Mark", World Leaders & Politicos everywhere have to exploit and manipulate to their heart's desire!

And as complications continue to set-in on the negotiation efforts by the most amateurish, unqualified State Department in American History, more complications continue to pile up for the United States…and now, just to pour a 'little' gasoline over the fire?…Vladimir Putin stated Russia will "support" North Korea Militarily if ever attacked in a Pre-emptive 1st Strike. And recently, told the United Nations he would not abide by their sanctions and continue to export Oil to Pyongyang. China also offered the same conditions for Military support and also refused to recognize the sanctions. They too will continue to export 'their' Oil to North Korea.

This whole Korean conundrum is what happens when a totally Incompetent President and a totally Incompetent State Dept. takes hold of Foreign Policy. Our Leader and his Crony Sec. of State have absolutely no experience or understanding of International Foreign Affairs, on Diplomatic Engagements and Skills, or how it all works in World Politics!! Using Military Options cause they exhausted all talks?? BULLSH*T!!

How in the hell can any talks even be held between the Countries involved, if the State Dept...with all the tension of Nuclear War and Armageddon…still has no Ambassador in place in South Korea? Or in China? Or in Japan? And no Undersecretary of State for Asian Affairs?
More than 30 countries still lack US Ambassadors, Embassies under budget, and all running dangerously understaffed!!...and then, you hear the constant hypocrisy of the GOP, always bitching about Benghazi?!?!    
The next Benghazi? Any of a couple of Dozen Embassies with no Ambassadors, a very small Budget & a very small Staff!!!...in all seriousness, God help them!!

As tension grows, the military escalation by Korea and the US continues to grow...and while the tension of Nuclear War spreads around the World...the White House's (actually Rex Tillerson's) official schpiel on their beloved leader was; "Don't listen to what Donald Trump ever says".
Don't listen? don't Listen?? Improvising, or flat out Lies!...Donald Trump simply does not understand or just lacks the knowledge that as President of the United States...anything he says represents America's position, and is taken as his official "word". He definitely lacks the academic knowledge…or did you really expect Donald Trump to turn into a respected Gentleman, Statesman, and Scholar??
Don't believe what Trump said in the United Nations?...His speech declaring himself "Ronan the Accuser" and threatening a Wrath of Hell on North Korea? I know what Rex said after another of Trump's Rants, and Mattis made sure to say it after this speech…don't listen or believe Trump.
But, you really got to feel sorry for Kelly. This man can't ever raise his head in public from the shame and embarrassment his boss brings to him! His expressions and body language say it all! 

Sorry, Donny! You flunked again in the World of Diplomatic Decorum, Barack Obama you'll never be! nor will you ever reach up to his level. Which is why You, Sir! are so deeply deeply jealous of 44! Live with it, you can't change reality!

The Man-Baby War of Imbecility that can exterminate mankind.
As rhetoric continues to escalate between these 2 totally incompetent fools, our readiness level is reaching "DEFCON 1"!!...the "Cocked Pistol" is loaded and ready to unload a Nuclear War!

Like Slim Pickens' Wild Ride down the B52's bomb bay doors...I believe that if Trump ever drops his damn Bomb...it's only appropriate, Trump to be 'Forced' to Ride It Down like a Bucking Bronco, and waving a Big Cowboy Hat! Yippy Kai Yay! Motherf*cker!...and Adios, Amigo!!

The Courage of a Community, while a President Showboats!

By RF Schatten


"God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the Difference"  ~~~ Reinhold Niebuhr

A Community of Heroes!...amazing how Mother Nature turns our American Communities of Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, all ethnics groups, both Repubs & Dems, Rich Man or Poor Man...all coming together, rejecting hate and rejecting prejudices, with only one goal in mind...saving the lives of their fellow man!!

But even during times of natural disasters, amid all the 'Positive' attention on how American Communities bond with Courage and Moral Responsibilities, in times of Crisis & Tragedy...even then, you have the 'Negativity' of Human Nature.
You have those who don't give a damn whatsoever about saving anyone except for themselves, it's those people who during times of Crisis, cowardly run away from their moral responsibility...even if they are safe on higher ground!

Hate, Bigotry, and Racism don't disappear inside a Flood! The immorality of Politicos and the immorality of those "Good Christian Pastors" who 'suppose' to teach and practice Jesus' Corporal Works of Mercy; Feed the Hungry, Shelter the Homeless, Clothe the Naked, Visit the Sick, and so forth! That immorality between Politics and Religion goes hand in hand!

Like the Immoralities of Pastor Joel Osteen, who conveniently closed his massive facility to take in victims, citing his Church was flooded. A very ignorant excuse for a supposed smart man, knowing it wouldn't be too long before being Exposed by the Press...for the Sh*t of a human being, he really is!
The Following day, after a 'Hurricane' of Criticism by Social Media and by the Press, nationwide...the Good Pastor opened his MegaChurch to victims. Was it his Guilty Conscience? or sudden empathy towards his fellow man?? Or was it his Heart, his natural love for helping People in distress??
Well? How about a noticeable financial loss in his Congregation, and even worse in his dirty greedy mind...a really bad hit on his "Ratings"! 

The excuse, this sorry excuse of a Christian gave for Closing the Church? The City didn't ask me to open it up!
WTF?? This man must have missed "Christianity" the day they taught it in Christian School!

WHY WAIT TILL SOMEONE ASKS?? Listen, Joel! You say you're a Man of God? Act like one!! And if you're supposedly sincere in your belief in God?...it's your absolute moral responsibility to go out, open your doors, Feed the Hungry, and Shelter the Homeless!!
The problem? This Fake Christian has no Empathy and way too much Bigotry! This grifter is a Theological equal of Trump, in every way!! Now though, he can Pray, Confess, do all the Acts of Contrition he wants, and be "Re-Born Again" over and over!!...cause this little Boy, when it's time to meet his maker? He's getting a one-way ticket, straight down to Luciferville!!

Much was lost in the tragedy of Katrina, and it became a national embarrassment for the US Administration. Harvey is much more massive than Katrina ever was! and if you believe Trump's Magic Snake Oil remedies?...how Trump & Co. is going to fix up Texas, greater than ever?
People, especially in Houston, should be reminded that their spineless President slashed the Federal National Flood Insurance program down his golden toilet!...not too long before the Flood!!

And to show America even more of his "Humility" and Compassion, this Bullshit Artist who promised Texas, the Greatest most Awesome re-building relief job in History...besides gutting Flood Insurance away from about 50-100,000 residents, he made FEMA Funding cuts, and cut $190 Million in funding the updates of Maps for Flood Prone Areas! $Millions$ which were also "reportedly" diverted from Texas' Flood Insurance to fund his damn wall!!!
And to add to the nightmare…a toxic chemical gas plant explosion with toxic water merging into the flood. EPA? Nowhere in sight & very silent!

How more disgraceful and how much more dishonorable could a man who's the Leader of our Nation be with the American People?? Lying to the victims of this horrific devastation about the greatness of his cooperation into re-building Houston...while silently screwing the Flood Victims all along, of everything they have!! 
   
After Trump's delightful romp of self-adulations, Trump Hat Sales, and Mini-Rally visit in Corpus Christi...in the wake of a Catastrophe...damage control quickly set in place. 

A Good Sucking Show soon followed, again in Corpus Christi. All, exclusively for the eyes and ears of Texans and Republicans. Gov. Greg Abbott and Mike Pence were given the assignment of covering up Trump's standard messy and embarrassing visit.
Apparently, in a formal prepared speech, Abbott praised Trump & Pence for their valuable leadership work and efforts in this Disaster, then Pence praised Abbott & Trump with the same schpiel...it was one big sucking show! And Trump? He only praises himself, what else!

In his 1st Visit, Trump couldn't be happier…Wow! What a Crowd, What an Audience!!...2nd visit, he got his hands dirty helping a little and physically touching someone with less $$$ than him in 50 years. It was your Standard "Concerned Look after a Disaster" Presidential Photo-op…and Melania? still with her damn Spike Stilettoes! Trip 2 Sound byte embarrassments? "Harvey has been a wonderful thing for Texas"…and "have a good time in the shelters, everybody"! This, to people who have just lost everything in their lives…their homes and their livelihood.

Many fine words of condolence, praise to Volunteers, thanks for all donations, and solidarity among Americans. Pretty sound-byte moments of Unity...but, at the end of the day? Where's the Beef!?!?
.
Where's that Relief Money? Where's that $$$ going to come from? Over a Hundred Thousand have either lost or severely damaged their homes, along with all their Life Belongings & Memories...and on some occasions...the loss of their families, and even their own Lives!!!
How do you repair and rebuild, when the Government stops funding the Federal Flood Insurance Plan, to rebuild your home?? How do you re-built a City without proper funding?
Dumping a seriously needed Program just because Obama initiated it, to spite him?? That's just Cruel & Evil! Financially, eliminating Federal Flood Insurance will cause a serious economic disaster in Houston...an economic disaster that will fall flat and roll into a domino effect throughout the Country.
Trump's Inhuman Philosophy: You got to destroy America first if you want to make it Great Again!

The Spirit of Man is more important than mere Physical Strength, and the Spiritual Fiber of a Nation than its Wealth ~~~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

What makes America Great?...certainly it will never, ever be Donald Trump!!
In times of Crisis and in times of Tragedy, you can always count on the Majority of Americans to morally unite under one single cause! Like Ike said; the Spiritual Fiber & Moral Fiber of Americans are stronger than any Government Administration!
Whether physically rescuing other people, opening their doors to victims, being Volunteer Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics,  or Firefighters; you can't always count on the Government…Katrina proved that!...but you can always count on your fellow Americans!
Or if people can't physically help or live elsewhere? Monetary Donations in the Millions will arrive throughout the Country. They'll send Medical Supplies, Food Supplies, Blankets, and Clothing. All arriving from across the United States, Canada....and yes! Mexico!!!!
And in times of Grief and Despair, all Faiths truly perform their Services together, in the same Shelters...all praying side by side…Christians, Jews, Muslims, whatever your denomination is! And whatever Hate between the different Faiths? !s remarkably absent in times of Catastrophes! 

Houston!! So much respect for your actions on Immigrants and ICE! The actions on the part of the Mayor and the Sheriff in Houston, shows the exemplary behavior all Law Enforcement Agencies are supposed to have!
And to the Citizens of Houston and the Hundreds of boats!. Your collective moral responsibilities ...your Empathy, honorably opening your doors wide for Louisiana Survivors during Katrina, and now battling with your own Crisis. Stronger Together…your Serenity & Courage is a shining example of what makes America Great! 
The reminder of Catastrophes is in the stories of those who perish. Like the tragic drowning of a Houston Deputy Sheriff, a Hero, who drowned while saving people's lives...and Ironically, a Hero who was of Mexican Heritage. And a Dreamer also drowned rescuing survivors.
Did anyone being saved ever give a damn who saved him or her? What ethnicity they were? what color?  Who refused a hand getting out of the water? What Racist or Bigot preferred to drown than be picked up by a Black, a Latino, an Asian, or a Muslim? None!!

Ironic, how many people and Trump Supporters were rescued by the very same people who Trump calls Criminals, Rapists, and Drug Pushers! One Paramedic who rescued dozens of Victims happens to be a Dreamer…the exact type of person who Trump wants to deport and keep away, separated by a Wall!
Yes! Racists and Bigot always like to talk tough, but when the Devil is tugging down hard on your legs, sucking you down through some broken storm drain...the most Racist and Hateful person is going to say; Please, Help Me!!

How is the GOP going to pass an already Losing Argument of a Budget? Fund the massive amount of Relief truly needed for Texas? and give Baby Donny some type of pittance for his f*cking Wall, so he can shut up, go away, and play somewhere else?? While at the same time, go nuts with a Tax Reform Package…and a President on the rampage with his own Party? That's the GOP's and Trump's problem!

An insincere, malicious human being as President with a total lack of Empathy, a penchant for wild raging Kleptocracy and Nepotism, and who obscenely over exploits his Base of the Poorly or Non-Educated, is not what America needs!…not now! not ever again!
It's amazing how Mother Nature brings People together...and how systematic institutional Ignorance, Hate, and Racism keeps pulling People apart!

Oh God! grant me Serenity, Courage, and the Wisdom to know the damn difference! And in today's TrumpWorld, much more than ever!!




What Comes After All the Water?

Aug 26, 2017

As Mueller Closes In...this Guilty Man just can't hide his Guilt

By RF Schatten


"Nothing is more wretched than the Mind of a Man Conscious of Guilt" ~~~ Plautus

Wholesale Pardons including Himself, for Crimes not yet prosecuted and/or convicted?? The heavy stench of Guilt is flowing in the air, and blowing throughout the D.C area...but, nowhere more concentrated than around 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

The hardest act of a Scam Artist is to continuously show his Two Face when he tells you; "Trust Me"! as hard as he tries to conceal his guilt...and remember, Trump's mind seriously lives within his own delusional imagination!...no matter how much he tries, he has a way of accusing absolutely everyone else, while candidly and very stupidly leaking out his own Guilt, every day, every Tweet.
Donald Trump wants absolute power to Pardon Himself, cause Donald Trump knows and the World knows, he's Guilty of being the most sinful & evil human being ever to occupy the office of the US Presidency...and then, some!

It's True! Watching this Man-Baby every day of his life, totally freak the sh*t out of himself, because of the Investigations and the Grand Juries, or Russian pressure, Money-laundering talks, and all his "Fake News"! And especially his private business and his Taxes!! He would kill for 'those' Tax Returns not be made Public!!
Yes, Plautus was right; Nothing is more wretched to see than a Man, who's very Conscious of his own Guilt!!

Direct Lies and Plausible Deniability has been Trump's Modus Operandi throughout his entire life...and for a man, with as many Clinical Psychopathic Traits as the Trumpster? No! he doesn't listen to anyone whatsoever, period! His Presidency runs the way he runs his life...totally Illegal Business Dealings, Making $$$$$ in whatever he's involved in, Direct Lies, and always claiming Plausible Deniability!

Who's surprised that Donald Trump is being investigated for the worst crimes a sitting President has ever been involved in?? Absolutely no one!! Only an insincere, shameless, dishonorable, indecent degenerate and laughable clown would grant Pardon to Himself...if he could.

But, what happens if the Courts say he can do it, and Pardon Himself??
What else can happen after Committing the worse crime an American President could ever commit...the Treasonous Act of Collaborating with a Hostile Foreign Government, allowing Russians to electronically intervene and compromise our Democracy, and spy on our Nation...what else can happen?? How about Controlling the Red Button to bully his way around the world? While his Pardoned Boy Toy, Jared Kushner keeps raking in the family Gold?? What else can happen?...personally, I really don't want to think what would happen...or even know!!

Now, as deep desperation sets in this little man, his urgent need to end the investigation has taken drastic turns...to fire Robert Mueller and stop the investigation, he needs to rid himself of AG Jeff Sessions, and appoint someone who will 'Sieg Heil' his ass all day long...a rumor, this is 'only' just a rumor; Trump might be thinking about another "Liaison Amoureuse" with his cross-dressing pal, Rudy Giuliani, as Sessions' replacement. YouTube's video on these two old Clowns, is going to go viral...again!
A Cross-dressing Attorney General?!?!...only in Donald Trump's Reality Circus Show; "The Presidency: Season 1"

He needs to do something, and fast...and now, with Homeland Security's Gen. John Kelly taking over Priebus's job? more questions arise...moving Sessions to HS to save face? might not offend his Followers as much, but he'll still have to Recuse Himself from any Russian Investigation!
Meanwhile, Kelly who worked at Homeland Security and spoke at the Hearings, is now going to try to save our Non-Guapo & Cowardly President from Impeachment or Jail Time? No one can advise this mentally disturbed Sociopath...he's his own Trainwreck disaster!!
A photo of Kelly tells the whole story babysitting Trump; standing with his arms folded, head down and shaking it back and forth…probably thinking why the hell he took this job and pondering how to save this entire Dead On Arrival Presidency!

Degrading and insulting his own pick for AG, cause he refused to protect him and recused himself, instead?
The President is losing it more and more everyday…and in front of the world! It's becoming a noticeable topic of conversation in the streets and the Media. Always an embarrassment, but know Mental Health Issues, too?

His sleazy and degrading tweets continue daily…now, his outbursts with the GOP and Congress is causing trouble and tension throughout DC.
Intensive verbal shouting matches in Private with Mitch McConnell, cause he couldn't pass Trumpcare and wouldn't protect him from Mueller, with Bob Corker (TN), also for not protecting him from Russiagate, and the same with Thom Tillis (NC). Now he's divorcing himself from Paul Ryan and the GOP…a very stupid move by the very stupid, Mr. Stupid, who desperately needs to have a Bill passed, something, anything in his Presidency for some type of legitimacy!

And why won't he Fire Sessions? Cause this it's not the Apprentice, and in real life, this wormy little orange supercoward of a man, don't have what it takes, doesn't have the face to tell Sessions; "You're Fired"!

Resignations are coming from Right and Left…numerous staff members and complete Presidential Counsels, almost all of them, all walking out in Mass. It's just so much a person can take before he or she resigns their Self-Denial and see Trump for what he really is…a Hateful Human Being, a Bigot, and a Racist till his dying days!
It also appears as if Secretary of State Rex "Exxon/Russia" Tillerson may also exit Stage Right soon, and probably a "Subpoena" along with that resignation!

And now! The infamous Russian Dossier; 40,000 pages worth and a Golden Shower Flick!
This Dossier is considered by many, the roadmap for the investigation, and another piece of the Puzzle connecting the Russian Government, Russia's Alfa Bank, Big $$ Oil Oligarchs, Ukrainian $$, Germany's Deutsche Bank, $$ Laundering...and all ending at Trump Tower!!

Oscar Wilde once said; "Consistency is the last Refuge of the Unimaginative". Well, the consistency of absolutely no imagination is certainly the norm in the sustained incoherence of this chaotic White House!
A Batshit Crazy White House in total utter chaos since...oh well, Day 1? You never get the same story twice from anyone. Horseshit reigns supreme inside the Oval Office and it spreads throughout the Halls of the White House to the West Wing...where they're recycled right back into New Horseshit!

What can We, the People do? Listen to what Robert F. Kennedy said, and think about it;
“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

My friends, Resist Trumpism until its very last dying breath!!! Trump romanticizes Fascism!...believe me, there's nothing, absolutely nothing Romantic about Fascism whatsoever.   
Now, in his own way, he's "Demanding" from his Subordinates and from the GOP, all their Allegiance, Loyalty, and especially their "Protection" against any investigations!...this undignified coward and so called President needs to realize that Congress was elected to protect its Citizens, not the President! their loyalty is to their constituency, not the President!...remember, this coward was Elected to Protect America, his Loyalty is owed to the American People!...not an ever loving loyalty to Russia's Oligarchy and Vladimir Putin!
If he wants Protection, ask the FBI, or the Secret Service who someday might have to take a Bullet to save his worthless sorry life!  And all he does is continue to spew his hate and criticism on American Intel, and praise Russian Intelligence!...what a f*cking treasonous schmuck!!

We're on the verge of a giant Constitutional Crisis never seen or experienced before...the sh*t is closing in at that Fan...and King Donald's continued failure in his quest for Superhuman Greatness, is becoming an obsession!! Most cowards love Power, and Donald Trump is capable of doing absolutely "anything" to stay in Power...I don't believe the Military will back him up...but this little lunatic Psychopath with his little hands and his new little Red Button toy is one Dangerous Ding Dong!

With everything in this Nation becoming more disturbing by the day...I'll leave you with a last disturbing thought; As Trump's Larceny of America, continues...what Crimes on Humanity? what Criminal Acts? what Illegalities? even, what "Laws" would stand up?...if Trump has the Absolute Power to Pardon Himself?!?!

Charlottesville: A Live Introduction to Fascism

By RF Schatten


"Those who do not Remember the Past are Condemned to Repeat It" ~~~ Santayana

Never in my Lifetime, has this quote from my favorite philosopher been so relevant than today, in the Age of Trumpism...the sadness of it all? Those with a little Education understands, but are still powerless to do anything in the Idiocy of Trump's America!
Yes! We live in a world where Laws are being attacked by the Lawless, where Morality takes a back seat to the worst forms of Immorality, where Obscenities and Lies by the Leader of a Nation are considered the norm, and all tolerated by so much ignorance!

My friends, 'We' have all arrived at that historical Fork on the Road!...where a Dysphunctional populace, can't continue to ignore life anymore!...whether you want to or not, you 'will' have to take a serious decisive stance! It's your once & maybe only chance in your Life that will affect your kids, your kid's kids, and all your future generation....it's 'your' Responsibility! You're gonna have to 'choose' between the Civility of Democracy or the Impudence of Fascism!

If you believe this is about Donald Trump? You're partially right...but look around you! look around the World! and you see Donald Trumps everywhere!! That nasty fever of Nationalism is spreading, and their champions are the likes of Donald Trump, Jean-Marie Le Pen, Rodrigo Duterte, Erdogan, Putin, and other Extreme Right Wing Demagogues. Their Civilized Resistance? It's now up to the World According to Justin Trudeau, Angela Merkel, Macron, and others...and back to Civil Disobedience.

Once the strongest Leadership in the World...6 months ago!
In the 6 short months of Trumpism...we've lost everything, the total lack of Respect  & Trust for Americans around the Globe! The Character for what we stand for, and the continued humiliating embarrassments by this stupid tiny little man, every single solitary day...is just simply embarrassing and disgusting!! But most important of all? Donald Trump continues to Insult everything America Stands For...and then some!

We've lost our own Self-Respect, by continuing to allow human garbage bags like Donald Trump to occupy the Oval Office, Rule, and Embarrass America every single Day of the year!! When our Allies, in front of all World Leaders, says the United States cannot be trusted anymore...." the US cannot be 'Trusted' anymore "??...we definitely have a major PR problem crisis in our hands!! The Question? How the hell do we fix it?!?!

Hillary Clinton once said; "Extremism thrives amid Ignorance and Anger, Intimidation and Cowardice". Whether anyone likes her or not...she's right!!! Just look at what Trumpism is all about! Draconian style Policies, Hate, Anger, and certainly Ignorance is what got Trump Elected...Intimidation and complete Cowardice is how he governs this Country.

Extremism, whether towards the "Right" or towards the "Left"...is still, Extremism!!
Our Nation's problems always keep coming back to the Heart of the issue...back to 1) America's Disparity of the Classes! 2) History of Religious Intolerance! 3) Misogyny in America! 4) The 200+ years of Xenophobia! and 5) Bigotry & Racism!...all deeply rooted in American Society. We must! we seriously must at all cost, have a National Dialogue on Class Struggle!! And on all the struggles facing our population...free from Right or Left Ideology! But dealing with today's White House Crisis, Russia, and the rise of Fascism in this Country, on top of all that, too???

"Fascism is very much a Mob Movement" ~~~ PJ O'Rourke

For the record, Trumpism follows the practices of Fascism...it's those old Nazi Uniforms, the degenerative sexual glamour of fancy tight outfits and tall black shiny leather boots, the decadence that comes with all violent Psychopaths free of charge, the massive "Feel Good" Rallies held to please their Narcissistic Führer after bad news, and their Sieg Heil Salute, signifying their complete total Allegiance and Pledge of Loyalty!
Proof?? All the Administration's Policies, every single one of them!...is about screwing the entire United States' Population for the benefit of just a few Oligarchs, and the Trump Family.
And if you're too blind to see what's happening across this Nation?...you deserve what you get! While everyone else will Resist!

A "Mob Movement"? German's called them; "Sturmabteilung". The Stormtroopers were the Nazi Party's paramilitary group of "thugs", also known as Brown Shirts.
Their objective was Mob Rule. The very same objective in America, today! Back in the 20s, beating up and killing anti-Nazis demonstrators, actually, anyone they didn't like, never! condemned by Hitler...it's now 2017 and the beatings remain the same, this time beating Clergymen and Clergy Women with Baseball Bats and Brass Knuckles in Charlottesville!! The total immorality and despicable behavior by Trump Supporters!... Trump? Also flatly refused to condemn by their actions...any similarities?

American Fascism. Truthfully? It was very much expected! When you have the KKK, assorted White Nationalist and Supremacist Organizations, American Neo-Nazis, Skinheads. and an assorted group of every batshit crazy Bigot, Xenophobe, Homophobe, and Misogynist Hate group in America, all United Together?...and with the Royal presence of David Duke, to boot? In the age of Donald Trump...you knew sooner or later America was going to implode!!!

As Duke said; "White Supremacists will 'fulfill' Trump's Promises" "Fulfill"?? Ahhyup! Trump's own Stormtroopers may be temporarily enjoying life as Fascists, terrorizing whomever they want. But remember, dickheads! Ignorance is Bliss and Karma Sucks, "The Night of the Long Knives" 'will' arrive!...and, with their own adoring double-crossing President, leading the assault! 

What's the glamour of Fascism? The same "Degenerates" that openly enjoy violence!...enjoy the violence on women, the violence on Blacks, the violence on Hispanics, nowadays...the Violence on Muslims. They also go gaga in the joy of denigrating everyone! They enjoy pain via Whips & Chains of Prussian Clad High Heeled Mistresses (It's those damned Nazi Uniforms!) Yes! they're the same degenerates that enjoy watching their own country's Sovereignty and Constitution go down the political crapper!

Coming out of the fringes of American Society as Raving Fascists and laying down their lives for Heir Führer, Donny Drumpf? The enjoyment of violence and guns and the belief that anyone they don’t agree with or dislike, don't necessarily need to live or deserve anything...cause it's God's will??
They blindly follow Trump's encouragements for increase Violence by Law Enforcement, and Violence itself!...our Nation is being divided by Violence, publicly Incited by of our very own damn President!
Never has Evil been so dominant inside the Oval Office. And all those Trump worshippers?...at the end?...who's going to speak up for these ignorant schmucks when they come "knocking" at 'their' door?

Listen, whether it's Fascism, Communism, Socialism...whatever ism!...in the end, it really doesn't benefit anyone! They're all Totalitarian forms of Governments, one way or another!
Leftists...whether Communists, Socialists, or Maoists, whatever their leaning is...have had their very nasty moments of power, but their succession of Governments continued till the "Ideological System"...itself was finally torn down!

The glory of Fascism? It never succeeds with Successors in Waiting...Hitler like the coward he was, took the easy way out and popped the "Pill". And to make death certain...had an adjutant put a Bullet through his head, afterward!   
2 Days earlier, Benito Mussolini...the very one man, the idol who Trump emulates to a "T", all his Character Traits and Mannerisms, all his Body Language, down to his Facial Expressions!...was hiding too, like the coward 'he' was, when he got caught, shot, and strung up by his feet publicly on the streets of Milan, alongside his Mistress and his cronies...while an emotionally angry and irate Italian Citizenry, physically took out their anger on them!

So, take heed, Mr. President! Kings, Queens, & Czars, and their "Families" have all met their own unpleasant early Demise. Two Bit Dictators have met their own unpleasantries, too...and all the $$$$ in the World is not going to buy you an extra day! A rich little man with tiny little hands who Betrayed America, means a lot to a very Angry, Resentful, and Betrayed Crowd! 

We've come down to a matter of simple basic Education. Just like trying to understand Socialism & Communism, America has never really been properly introduced and educated on Fascism ...and it appears, Americans are about to get a crash course!!

Spies, Lies, & Russian Ties: Sleeping with the Enemy

By RF Schatten


They say; If You Elect a Clown...expect a Circus!
Non-better words fit this Orange Humanoid Clown that pretends to pass himself off as President of the United States...and his Circus Atmosphere for every single event he ever participates in! From Cabinet Meetings, praising & hailing Heir Führer!... to all his Foreign Visits and Gaffes!...from his "Re-Elect" Rallies 4 years before Re-Election!...down to his ridiculously bombastic Tweets!

Irony?? Elephants were always associated with the Circus and the Republicans. Now, the "Circus" Elephant is becoming extinct...just like that White Elephant once known as the Grand Old Party.

To collaborate in a "joint" venture with Russia on a tight impenetrable Cybersecurity Unit, to protect "Americans" from Voter Fraud by the Russians?? W...T..F...!?!?
Are we all really that stupid or naive, and not realize what's really going on?? Who's fooling who??

An Administration that its primary operational policy is the systematic use of Lies...will die an ugly death!

Disclosing Voter Information? Name, Address, Date of Birth,  Social Security, Religious Affiliations, Party Affiliations, Voting History...and Felony Convictions!!
All to ensure a 'clean' & 'fair' Election and protect Americans?...ahh, right!! and with their Russkie partners-in-crime, together making sure 'who' is and 'who' is not on that Database? An "Impenetrable Cybersecurity System", one that only American GOP Hackers...and Russian Hackers...jointly, could get into!

And now, the Trump State Dept. issues 150+ Visa requests from 150+ Russians...like in; with Diplomatic Immunity? All permitted to enter this Country, travel and see whatever their schtick is all about, anywhere? ...no problem! they're just Russian Spies!!...you know? our Cybersecurity Comrades!!

While Trump demeans our US Intelligence Community, this man "Honors" and 'accepts' Vladimir Putin's "word"; that he's a totally innocent creature of God, always misunderstood by the Evil Press? (Which is why Vlad just kills them off, instead!).
Shamelessly Trash Talking our own Intelligence Community on Foreign Soil, and on the World Political Stage?...while praising and appeasing a known cold blooded killer, Vladimir Putin! and our natural Enemy...Russia?!?!
Chalk-up another World Embarrassment, which America can now thank Donald Trump, for...again! 

No President in American History has ever sold out his country!..till an Immoral Degenerate character, with the blessings of his cast of mentally deficient Minions...did it!!
Just ask them!! In Trump's Voter Friendly Nashville, they love Russians cause Trump loves them...they don't understand jacksh*t about Russian History or about their Culture or how they even tick!...but if The Donald says they're OK, when the "Wisest" Man on this Earth, tells them?? Ahhyup! At least, Nashville trusts the Russians.
"It's perfectly fine to trust the Russians"! 'That' coming from the very same people who grew up, listening to all their families, friends, and part of their tradition; to always look under your bed and make sure there's no "Commies" hiding!

A Traitor who handed over his Soul for the lure of monetary bribes...and then, proceeds to allow the hostile Electronic takeover and infiltration of the United States of America by a hostile Foreign Power!!
150 Visa Requests?? Now America can truly say they have a Commie...or, as in this case...a Russian Fascist, under every bed!
A good reason for Trump's Voter Information? A Database to find all of Trump's Enemies and those who don't pledge their Loyalty. A Database mutually shared by our new Russian Cyber-partners and Trump's phony-baloney "Distinguished" Voter Fraud Commission.

Dear America! with an Autocrat determined to Make America, Great Again into his own Image...my suggestion is you pick up a copy of "Learning Russian for Dummies", or "Rosetta Stone".
Only a Traitor would literally invite and permit another Nation to invade and undermine our Democracy, and undermine our Democratic process...our Elections...and then at the G-20 meetings, give Russia the green light to do it again?!?!

Yes! Yes! Yes! The Reality, Political Correctness, and an angry pissed-off GOP greeted Trump when he arrived from his Polish & German Tours de Farce...and they read him the Riot Act! He quickly announced the cancellation of 'his' idea (or was it Putin's?) for a joint US/Russian Cybersecurity Unit.
Like "The Wall", an Impenetrable Cybersecurity System is another of Donald Trump's games of illusion...but, he can't even fool, a fool anymore!
Yet his Fanatic Minions, who are truly a serious insult to all fools and really stupid people, around the world...will follow him right off into Oblivion.

BUT!! What if Putin and his Boy Toy could have pulled it off?? What would happen next? Would it be OK with the Trumpster's base? YES! Of course! they suspect everyone in this Planet...not Lilly White, or not Stupid...of being their Enemy, and because We, the Taxpayers will foolishly fund Right Wing Americans and Russians to mutually spy on our Nation!...on all of us!!!
Naturally, these not too astute Trumpsters don't realize they're going to fill a major portion of the Casualty List in Heir Drumpf's America!
The Continued Operability of Foreign Intelligence inside the US is a very real and very serious issue...and an extremely dangerous situation for this Country to ever be in!!!
This American Administration's continuing policy of being Russia's Apologist, appeasing them at every step of the way, and their continued massive efforts to block the Trump/Russia Criminal Investigation, is more than enough proof We, the People were sold out to Moscow, Russia!

The Fact: Trump has been a despicable and deplorable crook all his Life, the lower the bar of immorality, the more obscene his life becomes! He also has a big fat mouth, opens it way too often, and talks more through his ass than anyone on this Earth alive, today. 
The Fact: Vlad's ultimate Goal is to destabilize our Democracy and isolate America, both Financially and Militarily...and with the weakest, poorest "Leadership" in American History? Vlad never expected "The Joint Cybersecurity Project" to really be accepted by the United States! Not even a minor setback for Putin...cause, the G-20 proved he owns Trump!

The danger? Trump is a very lowly Amateur, playing with seasoned Professionals in the very serious Game of Politics...if there's any way possible for Russia to make an 'impact' in our Federal, State, and Local Governments, in our Economy and our Society...with a stooge like Trump? Vladdy would be spying his Russian ass off!...or, at least more plausible than what the Russians are already doing to us!!
Returning to normalcy after the Shocktrauma of Donald Trump's Presidency, won't be easy...but it's an attainable goal!
Though! sooner or later, if Trump isn't prosecuted and is still in office? Yes! you 'will' see deep Russian Political Influence and Money, deep inside our Government...there's no doubt at all, about that!!

America is becoming a Russian satellite, right in front of our very own eyes!...just like the 3rd World Country, we're also becoming ...cause the Immorality, Cowardice, and the unbelievable sheer Stupidity of today's Republicans have become too great!
Republicans just don't have the Cojones! or a Spine! that it takes to put their Country ahead of their Party and/or their financial $Interests$!!

What can we do?? Continue to Resist! Resist! Resist!...let your voices be heard by everyone on that Right Side of the Aisle...in their DC Offices! in their State and Home District Offices! at Town Hall Meetings!...even in front of their homes! both in DC and their Family Homes! Hit the Front Lines in the Streets, and join them! And don't stop or ever give up! don't 'ever' surrender!

Or, you can sit on your lazy derrière, wait till the GOP finally 'grows' something!...and stops the Madness of this King!

In Search for the Goodness in a Faux Leader's Soul

By RF Schatten


"Human Greatness does not lie in Wealth or Power, but in Character and Goodness"  ~~~ Anne Frank

Where is the Goodness in such an Immoral character like Donald Trump? Damn!! I really would
like to know, cause the Republican Party has always bragged about being the Party of Morals and "Family Values", as the Conservative Middle-Class' protectors of America's Working Family.

All the GOP Sins committed since the Great Communicator, and created by all their phony Values...rewarded them with a Man called Trump!...but remember, Karma is in the batter's box, just waiting to cause havoc upon an already tumultuous American Administration!!
Trump style Immorality has been part of the GOP, ever since I can remember...they just left it home most of the week, and a little civil discretion helped, too. 
Today, Christian Evangelicals and Right-Wing organizations are heavily promoting Immorality, Hatred, and Bigotry as the new Morality...normalizing it to an even lower standard...and a dreadfully Spineless GOP has embraced the bait...hook, line, sinker!

Now, with the Immorality of a President who lives for just that one sound-byte moment of Indecency, the same man who sets the tone for who "We, the People" are around the World...the Republicans have decided, in the zeitgeist of Trumpism, that Indecency and Immorality work just fine! Ahhyup! Example? Their preparation to royally screw the status of America's Health and commence the Death March for the first 200,000 Americans!
Oddly enough, a major portion of those Americans now condemned to death by the GOP's Trumpcare,
are Trump's fanatic  Minions...you know?...the not too bright, not too educated ones Trump loves so dearly? Will their tush be surprised with the kick they are about to receive!! The GOP and their beloved Trumpo, the Orange Orangutan, are throwing them...the whole lot!... way, way under the Bus!

Yes! Mr. Stupid! It's not about his great plans for all those you don't agree with, or despise...they're coming for you too, asshole!! You're gonna love their "Repeal and Replace"!...at least, as you lay dying ...you won't need to call it "Obamacare" anymore! Hurry!! You can now, be proud of your new "Trumpcare" Plan...as you take your final breaths!    

It's amazing, this era of Donald J Trump!...easily, the most incompetent and poorly administrated
Administration in US History!! The United States has become the embarrassment of this entire Planet. Trump has committed an act of public embarrassment every single day of his 166 days in office, since becoming President!...he's become an embarrassment not just to America...but, throughout the World!

This Fool, who dresses as a President, has been exposed by Foreign Leaders around the World,
as the perfect "mark"...it's going to be hard for the United States to command its influence or any influence for that matter, particularly in today's climate on the Political World Stage, when everyone knows that our "Leader" is a 70 yr. old psychotic cry-baby, who puts on a temper tantrum when ordinary people or the Press criticize him, also, if he's not the center of attention...or if he can't get his way!
Baby Donny comes out whenever the 70 yrs old fool, has a meltdown! He has no imagination or understanding of High School US Government 101 or World History, and thinks of himself as if he's the "Greatest Negotiator on the Planet"!

Real Leaders know how to skirt around Foolish Idiots. In this game of World Political Poker currently being played, overseas; Don the Con is the "Mark"...and Vlad Putin holds the Trump Card! "sad"

One short meeting and you know this man's character, his flaws and his vindictive strengths...yes! Macron, Merkel, and Trudeau are now, the new true Leaders of the Free World!

Meanwhile, Donald Trump gallivants around, praising his wonderfully indecent relationships with known murderers Vladimir Putin, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and Rodrigo Duterte (who 'personally' commits all his own murders)...and his open admiration for Neil Farage and Marine Le Pen? His disgraceful attitude towards NATO? his crazy far out antics at the Paris Climate Accords and the G7 Summit Meetings? along with his visits to the Vatican, Saudi Arabia, and finally "arriving" in Israel from the "Middle East"!?!?

All the President's antics have made a lot of World Leaders, think twice and totally mistrust
The United States. While Russia and Putin's computers continue to disrupt country after country, his Puppet continues on his mission.
The shameless acts and words that have cost our historical allies in France, Germany, and especially Great Britain, for the first time ever, mistrust the intentions of the United States of America!

Yes! We have reached that pinnacle of rotten, totally Incompetent Foreign Affairs Policies, and miserable Amateurish Diplomatic efforts, run by a very understaffed Amateur State Department with orders from an Amateur US Administration. What it means for our Country, and what it means for the rest of the world, is alarming! But, where's our National Dialogue? That's even more alarming!

Doesn't Donald Trump in his 70 yrs. on this earth, ever had any shame or any shred of moral decency?? We all know, he's got no backbone!!
NEVER! All the multiple shameful sins of his very overt private life! his ever-present public life, and now as President of an entire Nation!... a Nation in which he 'supposed' to be representing!...you know? those taxpayers that are paying his salary?!?!

My question still remains; Where are the Goodness and moral Character of this man called Trump??
Where is his Heart?
ETHICS: How Ethical is his standards of practice? How Ethical is the failed Human Experiment named
Donald Trump??
MORALS: The one thing that stands out most about Le Grande Orange, is his total spiritual lack of Empathy or Remorse, His embracement of Ayn Rand's philosophy on the Rejection of Altruism, and his sordid natural gift for his enormous Immoral Behavior, which he holds towards everyone in every sector of our Society, and around the World.
DIGNITY: Dignity? Besides constantly degrading the Dignity of his Office?...The Man is a Pig! His Dignity starts when he falls asleep after Tweeting the World to death, and it stops functioning a few hours later when he wakes up! It only takes one time to see 30 seconds of his facial expressions, to know why Donald Trump is the most undignified US President in this Nation's History.
CREDIBILITY: As a world renowned mega-compulsive Liar, who lies openly in public, and is Guinness Book's "Lies" Record Holder ...where is 'his' Credibility?
SELF CONTROL: The Man has absolutely no Self-Control in Life! Twitter exposed 'that'!...and it's
his most dangerous Achilles Heel!
KNOWLEDGE: Remember, Donald Trump, graduated from High School cause Dad bought his Diploma! And Donald Trump graduated from College cause Dad bought his Degree! This Little Man has been exposed in America...and now, throughout the World...as a dumb Rich Kid with street smarts, who could only succeed in life by using confidence schemes, deceiving all his clients, ripping them off, and never paying his Bills!
Knowledge? He's been outed as a Fake by his own big fat mouth! By his constant use of extraordinarily horrible stupid remarks, he easily convinced the World of his one and only Truth...a permanent Dunce Cap throughout his school days could be the cause of his baldness that morphed into his terribly spectacular comb-over.
How knowledgeable is our Commander-in-Chief? Just remember he's a genius within his own imagination!...he really did say the remarkably dumb and embarrassing lame statement, that he arrived in Israel 'from' the Middle East!!
And America is supposed to be impressed with this Clown??
CLASS: Donald Trump also proves that being from Upper Class doesn't necessarily mean you have any
"Class". In his case, no class at all! All his rudeness and unapologetic actions and that of his family just prove to America...and the rest of the Planet...what so many already knew; the Family Trump, any way you cut it...has absolutely no Class! 

So! Inquisitive people would still like to know; Where's is the Goodness of Master Donald?!?!
Start with a Man who privately has a serious personal hang-up with the opposite sex. An avowed
Philanderer, A misogynist who enjoys groping women, and a man who loves to publicly degrade women. His love to hurt people is to elevate his sense of self-worth.
A Rapist who got away with the Law and believes that there's no such thing as "Marital Rape"! But Ivanna knows better! Where is the Goodness and Moral Character of Donald Trump?
A crazy Maniacal Egocentric with a such a bad case of Narcissism, that he needs tanning spray
24/7! It's his need from Baby Donny, the cry for attention and compliments!
Showing his toughness against CNN in an edited version of an old WWE tape, he got paid to
perform years ago. 
All his self-accolades about the "Brilliant Businessman", then goes out and uses a Fake Time Cover, that hangs in all his properties around the World!...
And his call for a Cabinet meeting, taking these people out of whatever work or meetings they had...just for them, to each stand up and make a short speech in front of all the cameras and the Press , on
his tremendous personal Intelligence, his Superb Character, and Greatness of his Leadership and Job performance as President. 
Pretty much a Meeting arranged by the President as a forced congratulatory ass-kissing, ego-lifting event! There's no honor in complimenting yourself, Mein Führer! Donald Trump's Human Greatness? Not in this lifetime!! 

An incompetent uneducated President, a man with no Ethics, no Morals or Scruples, no Respect, no Dignity, absolutely no Credibility or Self-Control, and especially a man with no human understanding of the basics of education!
What's so good about Donald Trump?...he'll never know what true Greatness really is, or how it really feels. Pity!

A Man like this??...does it take a Donald Trump to wake up a Nation from this Batshit Kool-Aid addiction that produced a Donald Trump in the first place??

No one, not even Ivana, Marla, or Melania could ever tell you about his Goodness, cause in all honesty...there's just nothing Good about this Man!
And to anyone, if you still forever believe in the Greatness of The Donald, my question still forever remains; Where's all that Goodness of his?!?! And where in the hell is his Good Moral Character and that Good Heart?!?!

As the Russian Probe builds up, the Incompetents Lawyer-Up

 By RF Schatten


"Lawyers are the first Refuge of the Incompetent" ~~~ Aaron Allston

You don't need to Lawyer-up if you're not Guilty. When the President, Vice President, Attorney General, and the President's top Advisor...his Son-In-Law...all are in urgent need of Lawyers? You know the jurisdictive sh*t has hit the White House's proverbial fan.
How bad is it, when Trump's own Lawyer, needs a Lawyer?!?!...oh! the Smell of Political Incompetence has hit Washington DC like never before. The latest catchword around our Capitol? Lawyering-up!! 

With a President by the name of Donald Trump, the best Attorneys money can buy throughout the Country and in the District of Columbia, are all passing on the opportunity to be highly embarrassed by their client...and because, as one Lawyer said;  "He never pays his bills"!
All of Trump's Attorneys, are his personal Lawyers, guys who handle his business affairs...generally speaking, they're Trump's settlement Lawyers...the only job in their life is to settle all 4,000+ Lawsuits filed against Trump and/or Trump Corp. Settling as many Cases as possible, without having the need to go to court!

And since they 'are' his "Business Attorneys"; turning their attention to the Russia/Trump 2016 Campaign, Russian Collusions & Hackings, and all those ever expanding money trails?...they're totally out of their comfort zone!!
Commenting on the seriousness of the events? How do they comment on Criminal Acts when they're not Criminal Attorneys? How do they comment on Impeachment Acts when they're not Political Congressional Lawyers?...and with no clue whatsoever on Legal Congressional Procedures!
They're like a Fish out of Water!...and with a boss who's life consists of contradicting his subordinates...it's hard to answer questions, which in turn, makes the press ask even more questions until eventually, political humor brings out its funny face.
And like Spicer and Conway...2 people who suppose, to know how to deal with the press...Michael Cohen, Marc Kasowitz, and Jay Sekulow of FoxNews & CBN fame are currently Lost somewhere between Yonkers and Comedy Central!
What the President needs, is what all the others got...a respected Washington or DC familiar Criminal Attorney, who's also familiar with High Treason, Impeachment, Parliamentary, and Congressional Procedures!  

The list of people 'mutually' associated with both Trump, the Trump Family, Russian Bankers/Industrialists, Russian Government Agents, and Russian Mobsters...and now, Pro-Russian big money Ukrainians...continues to grow by the day!
                                 
Let's start with Retired 3 Star General and former Head of Trump's National Security, Mike Flynn...he committed Perjury when not disclosing his Russian Ties, as he was simultaneously working for the Trump Campaign and a registered Foreign Lobbyist with direct ties to Vladimir Putin! Heard he's talking to Mueller without Immunity!
Then we have Jefferson Beauregard Session, Attorney General of the United States and Keebler Elf...the top Prosecutor in the Dept. of Justice...like Flynn, just happened to forget to list down his meetings, all with Russians before and after the Elections, including a Dinner Meeting at the Mayflower Hotel with the ever-popular Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and other Russians. He was even Photographed by the FBI, and still can't recall!?!
Prosecutor Sessions also has Trump's anti-truth disease, who becomes scared and a nervous little twit, when Women Prosecutors won't buy his Lies and Horseshit tales of non-existing rules...instead of being honest and just pleading the 5th Amendment. Another Congressional Perjurer from the very beginning.
And how can we forget Mr. Everything, Jared Kushner!...this guy conveniently forgot to list a couple of dozen meetings with almost every Russian known Agent and Banker in Russia!...before getting his Top Security Clearance! More Perjury and very questionable business interests.
Michael Cohen was going to become Trump's chief counsel in the White House's "Russia/Trump War Room"...but he too got a notice that he's being investigated! Ahhyup! Trump's Attorney also hired himself an Attorney to defend him!
Mike Pence, Vice President of the United States...yes! Mr. Christian America...also, got himself a Lawyer. Not cause Flynn lied to him, apparently, he too has Russian Ties!
The list of usual suspects has grown so much, you tend to forget people like Paul Manafort, also still under investigation, and  Carter Page who allegedly, held audio tapes from Trump to be given to Putin, among all the things and meetings he had with other Russian Agents and Bankers in Moscow.

The Mueller Investigation with the full support of the FBI will pretty much reveal what everyone already knows...Russia hacked the Election in at least 39 States, and directly hacked into Voter Precincts in 21 States. And are still hacking today in at least 20 or more States at the highest levels, working down from there to the local community...and into the Local, State, and National Political Parties' Voter Rolls...both the Dems' and the GOP's!
But for every Hack, every disruption has a cost...that cost, always leads to the ever-present Money Trail.
And there's where Robert Mueller is leaning towards the way this investigation is going...he must certainly have very strong cases, for hiring more than a dozen of the best most experienced Criminal Prosecutors in America, a "Dream Team" in their specialties of Criminal Obstruction of Justice, Treason, Perjury, Impeachment, Corruption, Extortion, Bribery, Theft, and Money Laundering!

Now Ivanka and Donald Jr. appear to be under investigation for partnering up with Russian Mobsters...also, related to the Trumpster and Putin. Who's going to defend these two??
The only Trump not yet connected to this Reality Show is Eric!...and he's way over his head with his own troubles...ripping off Terminally Ill Kids and St. Jude Hospital with the phony Eric Trump Foundation, while funneling all the $millions$ into Trump Businesses.
Expect this piece of garbage to end up connected with Russia, too. Is his need keep up with Dad, for the respect his Father never gave him (The only living being Trump has ever truly respected is his shameful himself)...it's the same lack of respect Donald got from his Mom & Dad. His entire life has been a desperate cry for recognition..."Ha! Ha! Look Ma! I'm on top of the World"!!

The need for Defense Attorneys arrive when you finally meet the realization, that you're in deep sh*t trouble!...while, your feeling of guilt has taken over your life and whatever confidence you had, is gone! 
All the Midnight and 3 am Troll Rants on Twitter will never, ever help his cause...the true Trump character of the Liar, Con-Artist, Insanely Vicious Demagogue, Self-Centered, Egocentric, and Narcissistic Clown have been exposed, and those remembrances will never go away! No matter how much he tries to change his life around...those remembrances will remain with him till he takes his Final Breadths.  

Too many 'unusual' suspects and a whole lot of people you know are guilty as sin! The next step for this Reality Show will involve all the Legal Suits...all the Clients represented by Professional Attorneys!  And Team Trump, represented by the Amateur Douchebag Firm of Cohen, Kasowitz, and Sekulow! 

The defense argument for Donald Trump appears to be more and more every day, the "Idiot Card"; "He's new at the job, he's inexperienced, he's a little incompetent, and not too very bright. So give this Idiot a chance"!
If push comes to shove, would Trump agree to play that Card? He will refuse till hell freezes over, but, he will...he always does! without realizing he's doing it!...he truly is a basket case Idiot! My condolences to his Team of Lawyers!
