American Politics Elevates Slapstick To A New Plateau

Well. Maybe something will come from the Congressional hearing with former FBI director James Comey, but I doubt it. At least, I doubt anything will come that actually matters at face value. “I want loyalty.” Trump is said to have said. Like what, should he tell the prospective candidate for the job that he hopes he will stab him in the back?

The sad part is, Trump told everyone the elections are rigged. They are. But they aren’t rigged the way the media likes to examine. Trump told everyone it’s fake news. I have never seen anything more ridiculous than the investigation over Russian meddling and contact with… whoever. The whole supposition is lame, based on nothing more than frivolous conjecture.

But, it is one hell of a smokescreen. What else is in the news? China colluding with Jerry Brown, funding proposals for infrastructure, Trumps discontent with Jeff Sessions, travel bans…? I’ve cruised past those stories, in part because the fake news story about James Comey is dominating the headlines. It’s as though the MSM has set out to play some big joke on Trump by turning silly comments into a major international incident in the name and honor of fake news – that’s truly what it is. Maybe there isn’t much else going on, but who’s tending the hen house?

What I find most disconcerting is that any president should be subjected to so much ridicule and investigation over executing the authority that is his. He can’t fire the people who serve at the pleasure of the president? Can’t issue executive orders over whether non-US citizens can enter this country? It’s the old, and wrong, axiom that we used to quipishly refer to as kids, or excuse me some still do, we have freedom of speech in this country – as long as you don’t say anything.

But of course. That’s the way it is. Or, it’s always been that way. Choose your poison. But then, that’s the genius of Donald J. Trump. He has successfully controlled the news for most of a year. Each week like clockwork, boom, a new bone is gratuitously thrown unto the media hounds of news, who then graciously take the ball and run with it. No one knows what the hell kind of ball they are really carrying, or even what the game is, or isn’t. But, goddammit we hate Donald J. Trump thank you for the content very much.

And, that’s also what’s disconcerting about the most current fake news story. I still expect the MSM news to looks for legitimate stories. And, I expect that when the smoke starts to billow, they have the wherewithal to turn around and look to see whatever it is that no one else is looking at because they are focused on the smoke. Maybe they are, but I don’t trust them anymore than note-taking James Comey apparently trusts Mr. Trump. Would you have hired someone, in the first place, who came to the interview taking notes – because they think you are going to lie to them?

I’d like to think I’m being hard-ass, but I know I’m not. I know the FBI is deeply corrupt. I know corruption in municipalities across this nation threatens our system to the core, and it’s the FBI’s job to prosecute that corruption. The media doesn’t seem to be doing that kind of investigative reporting. It doesn’t matter how corrupt government is or for how long it’s really been that way, because what really matters is that the good guys are still trying to make things right.

Enough Wonder Woman already. It matters that Clark Kent is still trying to be Superman… and he isn’t.

    Cleveland police officer Timothy Loehmann is no better than any other dirtbag who kills as part of his gang indoctrination. For the wanton murder of innocent 12 year old Tamir Rice – that’s what the death penalty is for.

    Hillaryous | Obama Radicalized, Seditious

    What is naive, is to think the US government is unaware and unable to stop terrorism before it happens. Donald J. Trump admitted he knew about 911, but people still don’t seem to get it. Terrorism is planned decades in advance. The ONLY way to end the terrorism facilitated by a government, CIA, FBI and MIC that are already radicalized and ultra-extreme is to stop voting for the establishment radicals – whether they are career politicians or not.

    Bloomberg’s Disgusting Garbage

    re: Today’s NYT’s Thousands March to Protest “Stop-and-Frisk” As described in today’s article, there isn’t any room for discussion – stop and frisk is unequivocally, blatantly, unconstitutional. The first answer to correct New York’s problems should be an indictment and prosecution of Michael Bloomberg for what is apparently tantamount to sedition. He doesn’t get to […]

    Today’s newspaper reports that Roy Moore, (previously) Alabama’s “Ten Commandments” Supreme Court Chief justice is following in my footsteps declaring his approbation for and the virtues of the United States Constitution.

    The Cannon Ball Run

    Never underestimate the sense of humor of city planners… except, this sidewalk was deliberately planned and constructed before the Lee High Bus massacre occurred. The intended walkway runs along Church Street in front of the City Transportation Bus Terminal, underneath the interstate ramps, and immediately adjacent to the point of impact of the Lee Bus crash.
