Don John The Con

screen-shot-2016-09-09-at-1-53-33-pm


Donald John Trump is the world’s finest con man.

The tax returns would rip the cover off of his whole scam. He’s all leverage, branding, and pure risk. He makes some money on the way into a deal, but most of it on the way out. A parade of lawsuits and burnt bridges follow him wherever he goes.

It’s poker to him. 1 winner = Everyone else loses. Many titans of business aren’t sharks like that, they need the full ecosystem to supply them with stable income.

Trump is a shark, a pure predator, who uses real estate, branding, and the ability to lie convincingly to the face of anyone (banker, creditor, mobster, customer, voter, anyone) to get lines of credit extended to him like no other.

Imagine going to pre-Trump times and finding a republican to believe that a

pro-choice,
openly sexist,
immature dirtbag,
sleazy lying,
9/11 was an inside job believing,
corrupt,
3rd trophy wife havin,
vain,
Liberal,
Clinton supporting,
New York limousine asshole ….

would be their candidate in 2016?  Crickets.

Don John Trump the worlds best con man, the perfect spoiled rich kid who won’t work unless it’s to show how great he is, to demean everyone else all the time.

The Republicans were his perfect target. Palin opened the door to Ignorant And Proud and Trump took it to new heights.

The Deluge From Don

As the Trump circus rolls on he’s having major trouble picking up newspaper endorsements, even from reliably conservative editorial boards. I guess when you work in the newspaper business you are less able to stomach that man’s constant lies and misrepresentations.

So far he has 0 endorsements from city dailies. Newspapers have had built-in fact checkers from day one, unlike the web and reality TV, so Don’s con doesn’t seem to work on them.

First it was serious conservative daily papers in Texas, Arizona, and Michigan all announcing their inability to support this republican nominee. Most took several paragraphs noting they don’t easily support Hillary Clinton (if at all) but all of them agreed that Don John is unfit to be president due to his continual lying, incessant bragging, questionable ethics, and general cluelessness about politics and the president’s duties.

Where were you during the primaries when he could have been stopped?

Now the USA Today has chimed in, and they spent most of their time ripping him to shreds with some ammo left over for Hillary. They said not everyone likes Clinton, but compared to the disaster that is Don Trump they have no choice but to urge all americans to avoid voting for him.  Amazing.

Are we Idiocracyis being determined in real time. Fascinating.

This Election is 2MERICA – Donny and Ivanka Edition

?  Crazy times, friends.

Trump actually is a perfect movie bad guy. He’s got the TV history, he’s got the endless stories of narcissism and pure phoniness just dripping off him.

A billionaire liberal asshole in a trucker hat = Republican? Welcome to 2MERICA.


He also can comp you 4 days/3 nights in one of his resorts to make you like him, I guess, or at least wish for such a trip from your daddy.

The Don = The Pimp. Most republicans and other sheeples are now his bitches.

So this is the year I think you and I need to get off our keister and actually help the democrats.

We each could drive hundreds of voters to the polls to help Stop Trump.


I usually ignore them all, eventually let myself get upset at the republicans, talk to my friends, fight with the extended family, internet battle, post a blog, and then vote.

This time around I want to do more. I simply cannot let this

become president without a fight.


Oddly enough the most encouraging and interesting site during Trump Takeover™ has been Redstate.  Their leader Erickson is gone but the remaining community saw through Trump immediately. For a minute they were aligned with Cruz but since then t’s been homebase for the never trump movement, and fascinating reading from the right.

It appears not all conservatives are racists and/or uneducated psychos, and some of them are searching for the exit, or their own party, at this point.

Ew! No one should touch their daughter like that! If I saw my father in law do that to my wife I might have to punch him, or worse, start an investigation into WTF!


OK I guess this is a theme, but here’s one more creepy photo of The Don with his Ivanka:

He’s perched on a Lambo door-sil, she’s perched on a psychopath with a bad crush on his daughter.

 

February Horserace Update

The horserace is getting interesting now with Valentines Day around the corner. The Republicans are facing armegeddon, the Democrats facing deja-vu.


 

On the redneck side there’s donny wreaking havoc. He’s bullied his way to the front of the pack, and since rednecks love a bully and worship money they are delirious with “pussy” taunts and the reality TV fodder of this carnival barker.

No matter that he’s a pro-choice, womanizing billionaire New York liberal that speaks with the cadence, and often content of, a 4th grade rich little fuck.

These 3 men have a lot in common but only 1 had a wealthy daddy that wouldn’t sell houses to people like the other 2. Woody Guthrie wrote a song about it too.


No matter he’s been called the white Don King, or charges $400 for room service in his hotels, or is on his 3rd trophy wife, or prefers immigrants to both marry and hire under the table, or promises nothing more than “it will be great, you’ll see – so great, greater than ever before!”, nothing political stops him because he’s an entertainment show.

Most rednecks are xenophobic emotional types that respond to authoritarianism, and he’s giving it to them more than perhaps any presidential candidate ever. The new brownshirts – ignorant, racist, and demanding to be entertained. These are not political people or concerned citizens.


 

MeinTrumpf

Hi there handsome. Same premise, same pose, same stare. The mustache does make the man though. Donny’s hair is his version.


So it’s a full scale wrestling match now between donny and every ounce of republican establishment remaining. He’s winning the popular vote easily but has almost no congressional support. He’s winning the media game but almost all of it is negative.

I foresee a brokered convention: Cruz/Rubio and donny battle it out to a near draw as the chaos continues. The GOP is fractured, reeling, and desperate. Backroom politics goes around the donny show and nominates speaker of the house Paul Ryan with someone like Bush or Fiorina as VP. The Cleveland convention goes down in history.


 

cleveland-visitor-bureau

Calm waters outside but some serious hardball will be being played indoors in Cleveland this summer.

Of course, this forces donny to run 3rd party and he attempts to sue his way onto state ballots way beyond the deadline. He does his usual victim/bully 2-step, claiming it is un-american that he can’t run 3rd party and screams and shouts until his face is red and his hair goes crazy. His people scream and scare everyone. Oh wait….

 


 

With the blueberries we have a near repeat of 2008. Hillary Clinton is the established moderate democratic candidate – socially moderate, hawkish on war, and in bed with the media and the unions. Old news. Very hard to trust, in a vintage 20th century politician sort of way.


 

Hillary Clinton discusses her plan for health care reform March 20, 1994 in Florida.

Hillary Clinton in 1994. She should have run back then but her husband got in the way.


From left field comes a new, charming face that uses populist plain-talk and truth-telling to shine the light on the broken promises of the american dream. Other countries have better services and better responses to citizens needs! Other countries can do it, so can we! It’s the lefty version of Make America Great Again, but the model isn’t 1920’s america it’s 2020’s northern Europe.

Bernie is old, grumpy, and doesn’t always have specifics for how to move the country further to the left. He’s talking about some free college education for every citizen, he’s talking about single-payer healthcare (medicare for all), he’s talking about direct investments in infrastructure and cleaner power sources. He’s talking like Obama talked but wasn’t able to deliver. He would be the first jewish president, at least as big of a deal as being the first woman president.

No matter how many incredulous times FoxNews sneers socialist? like we’re in 1915 Russia – people want their government to serve them, not corporations and foreign conflicts.

no sleep til’ brooklyn!

My crystal ball is foggy here. I don’t know if Bernie has the stamina, chops, and overall appeal to knock off Hillary. Her inevitability is there, both helping to hold ground and hurting the overall package. It feels like we already had the Clinton thing, and while it was good for what it was, this ain’t the 1990’s anymore.

But I’m not ready to feel the Bern, which basically means going after Hillary. I hope those two save their powder to decimate whatever disaster represents the rednecks this time. At least Bernie is starting the discussion about modern democratic-socialist government and hopefully educating americans on the reality of the world.

We are stuck in the two party system and things like democratic-socialism (and the Tea Party, if that still existed) help us break the grip of the 2 parties.

I don’t believe R & D are a mono-party but I think they make more easy money in a stalemate, easily achieved with only 2 powers.

Redstate Ridiculousness

The republican blog RedState made news the other day when they rescinded their invitation to Donald Trump to speak at their event meeting the Republican hopefuls.

RedState did this based on his exchange with Meghan Kelly about women, and more specifically his response on CNN after the debate where Trump said Kelly had it out for him and “had blood coming out of her eyes, or her wherever…”.

It was close enough to “she’s on her period” to get a lot of people upset, including the friendly GOPers at RedState.  See, their head guy has a daughter now, and he couldn’t believe Trump went there (or might have).

Of course a lot of the site’s readers didn’t agree and backed Trump. They had a few words for Kelly that would get you fired if used at work.

Today? Front page article about Jeb and Hillary starting with the gem

If Hillary Clinton possesses any unique selling propostion beyond proving even a homely woman can sleep her way into power, it is her tenure as Barack Obama’s secretary of state.

That’s a compliment about her extensive resume that claims she only achieved it by sleeping around. Also, since she was such a slut while also being so physically unattractive, this makes her – yes -a groundbreaking woman.

This is their compliment. Ugly slut, right on the front page.

This is the same site that banned Trump from their event and most of his followers from their site.


 

So much entertainment at this point in the campaign.

Wait till the Tea Party makes their big pitch for Trump, puts someone on TV to explain how The Donald and The Tea Party are made for each other. Their face might explode with irony.

 

Simplify If You Want, But Remain Accurate aka Obama Takes Out Osama

Of course we are all talking about, and adjusting to, the big news of the day.

66 years to the day the last boogie man got his, Obama ordered the strike that most americans have been waiting for.


Obama_and_Biden_await_updates_on_bin_Laden

Obama, Biden, Clinton, Gates, and other top military advisors watch in Washington as our troops covertly land in Pakistan next to Osama’s house.


I never wanted war with Iraq and I never wanted to pay for bringing Afghanistan closer to the 20th century. Just about every one of my friends who would identify as an american liberal believed the same.

The raw emotions of 9/11, the fear marketing perfected by Karl Rove and Fox News, and the general ignorance of world affairs suffered by most americans led us into this delusion that we can declare a military war on what is in effect a criminal organization.

You don’t use marines to fight the mafia. If you don’t understand why I can’t help you. Continue reading
