Just delicious…

Well….spent the night last night watching the news for the first time in a long time and the ongoing meltdown of the idiot trump was just delicious…as you know, idiot boy’s personal “lawyer” had his office and residences raided by the FBI yesterday….looking for evidence of bank fraud and election fraud violations in relation to the many, many payoffs Cohen made to women that the idiot had affairs with…supposedly, Cohen took out a home equity loan to pay off Stormy Daniels and it is a good bet that he lied on the loan application…after all, you’re sure not going to say the purpose of the loan is to pay off a woman your boss had an affair with….so that right there is bank fraud; getting a loan under false pretenses. I read one nice little comment from a former prosecutor this morning….he said in the rare case that a lawyer has his office raided, the lawyer has always ended up in prison….so Cohen has that to look forward to…oh, one last thing that made me laugh just showed up on the internet….after the idiot trump complained loudly about Sessions recusing himself in the Russian conspiracy investigation, it was reported that the US attorney whose office is working on the Cohen investigation, one appointed by trump, has also recused himself from the Cohen investigation since he was appointed by trump and trump is involved in this investigation, too…I wonder how the idiot in chief is taking that little bit of news? Badly, I hope….impeach…

But, but, but,…her e-mails…

Well… with the breaking news this afternoon that the idiot trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, had his offices, home, and even a hotel room searched by the FBI today…and the first thing that came into my head was what the media harped on during the election…”what about her e-mails”…and how much that nothingburger was pushed and pushed was such a load of crap…and no one in the media said one word about the criminal conspiracy that is run by trump. If one outlet would have said one thing about the life of crime that trump has led, we wouldn’t be saddled with this moron who is killing this country….I dare anyone to equate a private e-mail server with a raid on the *president’s personal lawyer…and don’t give me any crap about a “witch hunt”….the raid today was signed off by a federal judge who looked at the evidence presented to him and determined that there is probable cause that a crime was committed….and, here’s the good part….this is a separate investigation that will continue no matter what idiot boy does…he can fire Mueller, Rosenstein, and everyone else at the justice department and this investigation will continue…and Michael Cohen has all the dirt on trump from years and years….the noose tightens….impeach…

Trillion dollar deficits…

Well…who would have thought that cutting taxes for the rich and corporations and increasing spending would lead to trillion dollar deficits for as far as the eye can see? Just every frickin economist that is not a right wing shill. With the CBO report that is coming out later today (and that was previewed over the weekend), deficits for the federal government are projected to be at least a trillion dollars a year…but the report states that this is the most optimistic reading, that the deficits could  be twice that and will continue for at least the next ten years if nothing changes. Do you remember when the biggest threat to the economy were the deficits during the Obama years? Yep, just another bit of hypocrisy from the repubs and shows you it was never really about the deficits then…it was about trying to hurt Obama and trying to keep him from being successful. One other thing that you need to remember, that SS and Medicare have nothing to do with these exploding deficits…they are completely separate accounts and SS and Medicare have been paid for by you and me…remember that whenever the repubs say that these programs are “in crisis”….they are not and won’t be for at least 30 years…and that can be fixed with just one change…by making all income subject to SS taxes….and that’s what we’ll do when we take back the house and senate…

Where are the jobs?

Well…with the job numbers that came out this morning, it is clear that the assertion out of the repubs that tax cuts for corporations would spur hiring was just a lie. But, we in the fact based world knew that….instead of the 300K plus job adds that were forecast, the economy only added 105K….and it has been 5 months since the tax cuts passed and that should be plenty of time for the billions and billions of dollars in cuts to have taken effect. What about wage growth, the other effect that the repubs crowed about when passing the bill? Isn’t happening anywhere…..and the CEO’s who were asked the question said they have no plans to raise wages…just to take the tax cut money and line their pockets with it. Now, I know you’re probably tired of hearing me talk about this, but this has to be kept in the spotlight at least until the election…and the fact that 90% of the country won’t see a dime in their pockets from the tax cut needs to be tattooed on every repubs forehead until them. Geez….

Soybean update….

Well….there was one thing that I forgot to talk about when I did the last one…and that was the effect the new Chinese tariffs would have on the price of soybeans…and it is getting ugly with the price down by over 40 cents a bushel just today…and that translates into a $1.72 BILLION dollar loss to soybean farmers in one day….how’s that MAGA working out for you now, farmers? Elect someone to burn the government that you hate to the ground and guess who gets burned…not the idiot boy, but you morons…geez….

Trump is getting played on trade….

Well….this is what happens when you put an ignorant idiot in charge of trade policy….with idiot boys escalation of the trade war with China yesterday, China has come back with targeted tariffs in response… and guess who they are targeting? Yep, all of the idiots who voted for trump across the midwest who are soybean farmers and the idiots in the south who work at car manufacturing. With the fact that midwest farmers send 70% of the soybeans they grow to China, this one is going to hurt….and you have to remember that China is an authoritarian government that can do whatever they want without concern for their people and can just stop buying from us completely, replacing our soybeans with any one of a number of countries who are probably salivating to get a piece of that market…and even less mechanized farms will now be competitive with the 25% tariff that China is imposing. Real smart, huh? You can bet that the carnage that is to come never entered in the idiot’s thought process…if he has a thought process….he doesn’t give a damn about anyone but himself and thinks that the trade war will make him look tough…he really doesn’t understand that the people he is going up against are smarter than a third grader, which trump isn’t, and they understand economics and world trade, which trump doesn’t….I feel for the farmers but not too much, after all, they are the ones that voted for the idiot boy…and now they will understand that elections have consequences…impeach….

Serves them right…

Well…I am just smirking a little about the trade war that the idiot trump started with China and the effect that it is going to have…a new study out yesterday by the Brookings Institute takes a look at those industries that the Chinese tariffs are going to affect, and guess what? Every damn one of them smacks trump voting areas hard…one hog farmer in Iowa ( a trump voter) is now “re-thinking” his vote since the tariffs are going to cost him over 30,000 dollars in lost profits and there are now 3,700 jobs at risk in his county alone. Now, I knew that trump voters were pretty damn dumb but I think this trade war serves them right…vote for a racist, stupid, reality show idiot just because you’re a racist, too, and this is what you get….loss of profit, loss of jobs, and the loss of the US’s standing in the world….how’s that MAGA working out for you now, idiots? Impeach…

Mr. Destructo….

Well…if you have been watching the antics of Mr. Destructo…aka the idiot trump, you’ve seen that he has been in a twitter feud with Jeff Bezos over some truthful coverage of the idiot in the Washington Post which Bezos owns, and the idiot has taken to trying to punish Bezos by threatening actions against Amazon…which have resulted in Amazon losing over 50 billion dollars in valuation as it’s stock has fallen. Now, none of the things that idiot boy has spouted off about, like renegotiating the Post Office’s contract to deliver for Amazon, and some nonsense about Amazon not paying enough taxes (which the repubs are responsible for with their tax cut for corporations) can be done, but to threaten a public company with government retaliation for publishing a story the idiot doesn’t like is pure impeachable offense…if the repubs would just do something about it. Who does that 50 billion loss in evaluation hurt? Basically anyone who has an IRA or 401K….you know, working people who the idiot was supposed to protect…and bought into his propaganda that he was a “great businessman”…when the reality is that he has failed at everything he has ever tried and has been bailed out every time by the Russians or the mob. What needs to happen right now is a lawsuit by some investor who has lost money by Amazon’s stock decline….it would be really easy to prove cause and effect of the idiot’s attacks and the stock price decline…and it would put just a little more pressure on Mr. Destructo and maybe we’ll see him blow…hope so….impeach….

Boycott WWMT channel three…

Well…with the FCC not doing it’s duty to ensure that news isn’t turned into propaganda, that is exactly what has happened with a company called Sinclair. This company has been buying up tv stations across the country and has been turning them into trump propaganda machines by forcing local anchors to read from the “fake news” script and lie to the people they are supposed to serve. We have one of those stations here in West Michigan, WWMT, or channel three from Kalamazoo that is joining in…so, what we need to do is hit them where it hurts, in the pocketbook by boycotting this un-American company that is doing Russia’s work in undermining our democracy…and the person who wrote the script that the news anchors are forced to read  used to work for the Russian propaganda channel RT…that should be enough for anyone who wants to help protect this country…boycott….

This is so ironic…

Well…as we all know, Jeff Sessions is a liar….he constantly lied about his contacts with the Russians during the campaign, and he also lied about the meeting where Papadopoulos told him that he could set up a meeting with the Russians and Sessions lied that he “pushed back” on the whole idea. Remember that the investigation into  trump’s conspiracy with the Russians started when Papadopoulos got drunk in a London bar and told an Australian diplomat that the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary in the form of thousands of e-mails…and, in an ironic twist, the same thing happened with Papadopoulos this past Friday night in Chicago….where he was out drinking with his wife and revealed to a stranger that “Sessions encouraged him” to find out anything he could about the hacked e-mails that a Russian operative had mentioned to Papadopoulos. This means that Sessions is still lying to everyone and that Mueller knows about it…how does that feel, Jeffey? Next stop…federal prison for perjury and for lying to congress….couldn’t happen to a bigger hypocrite….
