Anger. Rage. Disgust. That is the vibe after 43 cowards and zealots within the Party of Trump opted not to convict their Dear Leader for...
Upon learning of Trump’s latest foreign policy change, pulling out of Northern Syria, one couldn’t help but fear that the move represented nothing more than the latest payment made to those dark figures around the globe to whom Trump owes his current position. Cutting and running from our duty to support the Kurds will allow Turkey’s autocratic leader to move quickly-into the gap, open up Russian options in Syria, and further inflame a Middle East already heightened with tension over Iran. The news followed upon a tumultuous two weeks in which we learned that Trump bent Ukraine’s elbow back just as the Ukrainian government transitioned into a clean, anti-Putin administration, already engaged in a warm war with Russia. It was always destined to play out this way. Much as Putin, the Saudis, Israel and others, might have liked to have quickly gotten their “due” for their necessary “help” to install our current despot, they knew that the U.S. required time to adjust to the dictatorial life. One doesn’t over-force dynamic change into a two-hundred and forty year old democratic superpower. It has to evolve properly. But, the international crime syndicate that worked so hard and took so many risks will get their due. They cannot wait any longer. Trump looks “weak.” Trump is polling double digits down to every major Democratic opponent. He is facing an impeachment inquiry which – on any given day – could result in a document springing loose to seal Trump’s fate, at least as president. And even the worst procrastinators won’t have a “to do” list with three to four major things left unresolved in the midst of an election year. No, the summer-fall season of “year three” was always going to be the point in time to watch for major action. Trump finds himself in a delectably awful position. He most needs political capital at home while his biggest international benefactors need the most “anti-American” things done. One can just imagine Putin whispering into Trump’s ear: “Donald, it is time to weaken the Ukraine, and get your troops out of Syria, you had promised …” And Trump whimpering: “But I am fighting this impeachment process, and if I am doing things that upset too many people, I won’t survive to get that done. You have to help me get to the point when I can …” To which Putin might giggle viciously; “Oh, Donald, don’t worry, I will help you with impeachment. I will just continue to hold all our loan agreements here and not put a stamp on this envelope to the New York Times. After all, imagine how badly the impeachment might go if those documents found their way out? I do need my list done, Donald.” Of course, whether such actual conversations exist (though they could) is wholly beside the point. The dynamic near surely does exist. Other explanations exist for Trump’s decisions of late, but Occam sneers at those. The real terrifying aspect of the above summation is that we haven’t seen the worst, yet. If you had near outright ownership of the U.S. president, and you are part of the world’s biggest, most ruthless crime syndicate, one that could ruin Trump, would you be satisfied yet? No. NATO still opposes Russia, Iran still sits in the Middle East, sanctions still cripple Putin’s buddies, […]
Unfit To Lead
This is an official message from the President of the United States of America, issued on October 2, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. The Do Nothing Democrats should be focused on building up our Country, not wasting everyone’s time and energy on BULLSHIT, which is what they have been doing ever since I got overwhelmingly elected in 2016, 223-306. Get a better candidate this time, you’ll need it! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019 All caps. By the person “overwhelmingly elected” by a negative 3,000,000 votes. To be fair, that tweet followed upon a far more sane tweet, focused upon setting the record straight as to who is and is not honorable in this great land. Adam Schiff should only be so lucky to have the brains, honor and strength of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. For a lowlife like Schiff, who completely fabricated my words and read them to Congress as though they were said by me, to demean a First in Class at West Point, is SAD! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019 Do not worry, Trump can multitask. He has a laser-like focus upon the pressing policy concerns of our time, as he engaged in a deep debate with Speaker Pelosi on future U.S. policy with respect to prescription drug pricing. Nancy Pelosi just said that she is interested in lowering prescription drug prices & working on the desperately needed USMCA. She is incapable of working on either. It is just camouflage for trying to win an election through impeachment. The Do Nothing Democrats are stuck in mud! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019 Geez, it is almost like he’s implying that he would consider signing onto a bill that would help Americans with prescription drug prices, if only Pelosi would drop the impeachment inquiry. Almost, but that would be close to a bribe, right? “If you drop the impeachment, I will sign a bill that helps Americans.” “Psychological Projection”: Psychological projection is a defense mechanism people subconsciously employ in order to cope with difficult feelings or emotions, involving projecting undesirable feelings or emotions onto someone else, rather than admitting to or dealing with the unwanted feelings. APA (2017) All of this impeachment nonsense, which is going nowhere, is driving the Stock Market, and your 401K’s, down. But that is exactly what the Democrats want to do. They are willing to hurt the Country, with only the 2020 Election in mind! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019 Something seems to be occupying the leader of the free world’s mind, and he can’t quite put his finger upon it, but he knows it’s there. Of course, we all know, it’s just a bunch of bullshit, thrown out to feed the MAGA-heads, like chum in the water, with waves just starting to show whitecaps. **** Peace, y’all Jason email@example.com and on Twitter @MiciakZoom
Recall this, we highlighted the viciousness of it yesterday, and all that it means: ….If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019 We noted that Americans ran into machine guns on the beaches of Normandy for their country, yet Trump seems to be implying that we need machine gun each other down to save him, fuck the country. Others have taken note: NOW From a GOP Senate staffer: "The Civil War tweet is a tipping point for some, but not all." Says Trump's actions are pushing the GOP toward removal if that vote comes. It boils down to @senatemajldr . "If Sen. McConnell votes for removal, then it's over." @realDonaldTrump — Brian J. Karem (@BrianKarem) October 1, 2019 Forget for just one moment that it is Mitch McConnell, and just relish for a moment that Trump is not in control of his own destiny. Now would be as good a time as any to remind ourselves that Jared Kushner was spotted visiting McConnell late last week. Chuck Grassley is now reminding … well, it seems like he’s reminding an audience of one, Individual 1, to keep his mouth shut: NEW: Sen. Grassley statement on whistleblower: “This person appears to have followed the whistleblower protection laws and ought to be heard out and protected … No one should be making judgments or pronouncements without hearing from the whistleblower first." pic.twitter.com/rw5cFZzJlG — NBC Politics (@NBCPolitics) October 1, 2019 The best challenge that I have seen today? Crowdsourcing this: Running count of Senate GOP members who have issued a full-bore condemnation of “Civil War 2” and “Arrest my opponents” If reporters aren’t flooding the zone with Senate comms staff, they’re doing it wrong. This is an important moment. — Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) September 30, 2019 It would appear to me that the leak concerning “If McConnell votes …” indicates that reporters are flooding the zone. We have repeated two adages several times over the last bit: The end could come blindingly fast, especially as Republican senators eye each other nervously. And we’ve also referenced the old stock trader adage: “Don’t panic, but if you do panic, panic first,” which matches the thought process of Republican senators, eyeing each other nervously, checking their twitter feed. We have almost made it through another day. ALMOST: Update, Richard Engel’s quote really frames the dilemma for Republicans. They HAVE to see that this is taking the country in a direction from which there is simply no return. This is just beyond what many of them can take: Not normal is an understatement. It's off the hook, The wheels have come off the bus. The AG investigating US intel services, via foreign intel services? ,.. what? https://t.co/7Y1lyIFe6o — Richard Engel (@RichardEngel) September 30, 2019 **** Peace, y’all Jason firstname.lastname@example.org, and on Twitter, where I am collecting followers: @MiciakZoom
Over and over, we’ve said it. Trump will not “go down” without taking everything he can with him, and increasingly, it seems he’s determined to take down witnesses, other countries, and our nation itself, if it saves His Greatness. Yesterday, in a column infested with Trump self-righteous rage-tweets, we noted that Trump floated the threat of “civil war” should law-abiding citizens determine that Trump be impeached. We were not the only one’s who noticed. Conservative columnist Matt Lewis of The Daily Beast tore into Trump’s unveiled threat: “In January 1973, National Lampoon featured an infamous cover declaring: ‘If You Don’t Buy This Magazine We’ll Kill This Dog.’” he began. “I was reminded of that when Donald Trump sent a similarly desperate tweet this weekend, suggesting that ‘If You Don’t Stop This Impeachment My People and I Will Start a Civil War.’” Of course he will. At no point in his life has Trump ever acknowledged anything greater than himself. If his presidency is threatened by Americans, he will absolutely wage war – limited only by what he’s able to get away with – on other Americans. Not only is Trump not interested in “what’s best for the nation,” not only is Trump going to spend 100% of his time and effort in saving himself, he will take hostages. Not that it should surprise anyone, after all, holding funding to Ukraine hostage for Trump’s personal gain is how he got into this mess in the first place. Trump doesn’t learn well, he will only accelerate the pace of his lawlessness. It will all come undone, absent some sort of pushback by Republicans, Republicans in office, with the ability to stop this man. Trump is also intimidating witnesses – another felony, tweeting out messages to anyone who might dare cross him. We will find you. So if the so-called “Whistleblower” has all second hand information, and almost everything he has said about my “perfect” call with the Ukrainian President is wrong (much to the embarrassment of Pelosi & Schiff), why aren’t we entitled to interview & learn everything about…. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2019 And ….the Whistleblower, and also the person who gave all of the false information to him. This is simply about a phone conversation that could not have been nicer, warmer, or better. No pressure at all (as confirmed by Ukrainian Pres.). It is just another Democrat Hoax! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2019 “Learn everything about the whistleblower” and also “the person who gave all the false information to him.” Learn everything about him. It doesn’t take a MENSA member to note the twisted logic here. If the phone call is the only issue, and the phone call is perfect, why do we need to know anything about the “whistleblower,” Mr. “President”? Because Trump wants that whistleblower endangered, in fear. Moreover, he wants potential future whistleblowers in fear. This is the same man who called witnesses to the Mueller investigation “rats.” This is the same man who states that his supporters will erupt in civil war over his impeachment, Trump knows damn well that his “supporters” will immediately endanger this whistleblower. That is the point. We have whistleblower laws precisely because people in power could exact revenge upon the person highlighting the abuse of power. […]

Look out, “he” is on another tweet storm. Thankfully, this one constitutes hard evidence that Trump is feeling the heat, bigly. He must be worried that soliciting a bribe from a foreign country to meddle in the U.S. election is a crime or something. He went “third person,” where he goes when most maligned by truth. I guess he believes his victimhood rings clearer? “It appears that an American spy in one of our intelligence agencies may have been spying on our own president. The complaint suggests that this intel agent was listening in on Trump’s conversation…. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 21, 2019 Not done: ….with a foreign leader. Was this person officially asked to listen to the conversation or was he or she secretly listening in?” @GreggJarrett — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 21, 2019 Yes, I know he is “officially” quoting someone else, and yet you know as well as I do that he’s actually not. Those words are his, just “adopted.” But, this is how he does it. It is all now – according to Don – about the process itself, how his actions got to be discovered, not about his actions or what was said. In the “FISA issue,” he wanted to investigate the investigators, and make an enemy out of Jim Comey. He now doesn’t want to talk about his actual bribery of the Ukraine, he wants to discuss why it is that someone was “spying” on him, and make that “spy” the enemy of the United States. It is all a plot against him, it always is, according to First-Victim. This is why we have whistleblower statutes. Because sometimes someone sees things, and doesn’t want to explain how or why they know of the issue, nor do they want to face the wrath of a superior, caught in a crime. But, more importantly, we know that Trump is deeply worried. He has lost the discipline needed to stay quiet about what the actual scandal might entail, and has now legitimized the Washington Post story. He is, in effect, admitting that he solicited a bribe from Ukraine. This is the “so what?” phase, with the victimhood built-in. Last, and perhaps I am the only lawyer on earth who sees it this way since I haven’t seen it mentioned elsewhere, but I think he just “waived” his right to “executive privilege” by discussing the contents of the whistleblower claim, and referring it to a Fox News Media analyst. Remember, all privileges can be waived, and once they’re waived, they do not come back. He cannot – in my mind – pick and choose which aspects of the whistleblower complaint he discusses. He is supposed to have some level of discipline. Ha, I know. “Discipline.” We will see. One thing that ought to put a small smile on your face and you consider your Saturday evening, Trump is one scared man. It would seem that his fear is sincere, which is ironic, since … Never mind. Happy Saturday night. UPDATE TIME MORE TWEETS: Rollin’ rollin rollin, keep that tweet-fest rollin, rawhide! The LameStream Media had a very bad week. They pushed numerous phony stories and got caught, especially The Failing New York Times, which has lost more money over the last 10 years than any […]
Have we become so numbed that this goes without surprise, never mind outrage? On the calendar day that we remember others’ sacrifices, and within an hour of laying a wreath at the Pentagon, the president issued the following tweet: If it weren’t for the never ending Fake News about me, and with all that I have done (more than any other President in the first 2 1/2 years!), I would be leading the “Partners” of the LameStream Media by 20 points. Sorry, but true! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2019 Let’s break down the multiple layers of repulsive and self-righteous shit layered just within this one statement. Victimhood: “Never ending fake news.” Not a single negative thing written is ever true, nor ever his fault. It is all fake. Greatness: He has done more than any president, ever. Embarrassing Stupidity: In stating he has done more than any president anywhere, he is setting himself above Washington, who risked his life and freedom in the revolutionary war, then established that the president would be a citizen, subject to the laws, one who returns to life as a private citizen. Trump is setting himself above Madison and Jefferson, who did the heavy lifting in writing a constitution that is the closest humanity has come to an “ideal” form of government. He is setting himself above Lincoln, who risked half the union, and gave his life, to free people “owned” by other people, and save the nation. He is setting himself above Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who fought for regular citizens during the worst depression since the Dark Ages, then went to war for the world, fearing only fear itself. He is setting himself above Reagan and Bush who oversaw the end of the Cold War. And he is setting himself above Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president, who reversed the Great Recession, lead the effort to get healthcare for millions, and cut down Bin Laden. Trump has exceeded ALL of them. Stupid, but normal. Rejection of Reality: “I would be leading by 20 points …” despite the fact that even in Fox’s own polls, Trump has never once been above 50% approval, not once, and is now exploring the bottom of his base. Outrageous Narcissism: All the above came out on a day that an American president should not Tweet at all, but for one lone picture of the Twin Towers, Pentagon, with a “never forget” message. The “president” should be visiting first responders and listening to their concerns. This is “our” president, today, as if it were just any other day, the outrage never ends. **** Peace, y’all Jason email@example.com, Follow on Twitter: @MiciakZoom

IT WAS A MISTAKE! We all make mistakes. NO ONE went nuts when he got the Alabama thing wrong. It got corrected. He initially pushed back, wayyy too defensively. Then he took a Sharpie to a map, a map from days earlier than his tweet. He actually committed a felony in doctoring an official forecast but no one even holds felonies against him anymore. (Right, Speaker Pelosi?) He got lambasted for taking the Sharpie to the map. Like a kid who altered his report card. And yet it will NOT stop. Just this morning, THIS MORNING, he has Tweeted: In the early days of the hurricane, when it was predicted that Dorian would go through Miami or West Palm Beach, even before it reached the Bahamas, certain models strongly suggested that Alabama & Georgia would be hit as it made its way through Florida & to the Gulf…. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2019 That’s one. ….Instead it turned North and went up the coast, where it continues now. In the one model through Florida, the Great State of Alabama would have been hit or grazed. In the path it took, no. Read my FULL FEMA statement. What I said was accurate! All Fake News in order to demean! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2019 Two Alabama was going to be hit or grazed, and then Hurricane Dorian took a different path (up along the East Coast). The Fake News knows this very well. That’s why they’re the Fake News! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2019 Three. Now, you are probably thinking; “Doesn’t he have anything else to worry about, being president and all? Why yes, glad you asked. He is back to slapping around Debra damn Messing: Bad “actress” Debra The Mess Messing is in hot water. She wants to create a “Blacklist” of Trump supporters, & is being accused of McCarthyism. Is also being accused of being a Racist because of the terrible things she said about blacks and mental illness. If Roseanne Barr…. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2019 This is the president of the United States. On a morning in which a Cat 2-3 hurricane looms right off the South Carolina – North Carolina coast, the U.K. is a mess about Brexit, Chinese tariffs are disrupting the world economy, kids are in cages on the border, and both Iran and North Korea are experimenting with weapons that can kill thousands, he is screaming about Dorian and Alabama. He cannot take being caught in a stupid mistake that no one cared about. This is your president. I have an idea. Share this around, see if it gets traction. We need to end this one way or another. And I need a few thousand followers: Oh boy. If we all admit that it was certain to slam into Alabama, indeed it DID slam into Alabama, will he shut up about it? It is a deal we need consider at this point.https://t.co/wTf5xtZHtC — Jason R Miciak (@MiciakZoom) September 5, 2019 **** Peace, y’all Jason firstname.lastname@example.org, and PLEASE follow me on Twitter: @MiciakZoom
