I Always Look Orange


On September 12, 2019 Donald Trump simpered –

“People said what is with the lightbulb? Here is a story. I looked at it. The bulb we are being forced to use, number one, to me, most importantly, the light’s no good. I always look orange, and so do you. The light is the worst,”

Trump chose September 12th, day of the third Democratic presidential debate to light Republican supporters with news he would roll back legislation requiring transition from incandescent lightbulbs to energy efficient bulbs by 2020.

“Frankly, the light is not as good. We are going to sell that, but we are going to sell incandescent bulbs, and people are happy, it has been amazing,” Trump said.

Gradual transition from incandescent and halogen bulbs to energy efficient LED lighting by January 2020 originated with the George W Bush administration, adopted by Obama with nary a ripple. Enter Trump of Orange leader of greatest nation in the free world blithering –

“it is many times more expensive than that old incandescent bulb,” he said. “I don’t know if you know this, they have warnings. If it breaks, it is considered a hazardous waste — waste site. It has gases inside. Read what they say. If it breaks, bring it to your local whatever, have it wrapped — what are we doing?”

I suspect Trump referenced fluorescent CFL lights which contain mercury, I doubt he knows they’re being phased out in favour of safer, more efficient LED bulbs.

Here’s the thing, Trump could have announced legislated delay of incandescent bulb ban by saying – in consideration of financial burdens forced upon low income Americans faced with lighting homes with costly LED bulbs in the new year a decision was made to extend sales of incandescent bulbs until further notice. But, no! He made it about himself! “I always look orange, and so do you”, WTF?

America needs a leader, not a tangerine fool.

False Flag


Okay so you haven’t heard of the McFiles Network, few have, it boasts a paltry 12.7 thousand followers. Trouble is there are thousands of sites just like it. We ask ourselves how Trump prevailed in 2016, convince ourselves it couldn’t possibly happen again. News flash – it can and will if we don’t stop clucking sureties that conservative America knows better than to repeat itself.

Last week ultra right wing conspiracy theorists Chris McDonald and Mark Taylor broadcast blustering agreement that Hurricane Dorian is a “false flag” created by the deep state to distract Americans from the fact former FBI Director James Comey along with un-named high level members of Obama’s administration are destined to serve time in federal prison.

“When you get these stories and all of a sudden—boom—you’ve got an almost Category 6 storm, it does not take a genius to figure out it’s called a distraction and it’s called a false flag.”

“Absolutely, brother,” agreed Taylor. “These guys are going to be indicted, they are going to go to jail, they are going to go to prison so it’s coming, guys, we just have to be patient. But it’s not by coincidence that the hordes of chaos have been released because they know their time is short.”

Chris McDonald and Mark Taylor Agreed That Hurricane Dorian Is a ‘False Flag’

McDonald and Taylor support Trump, as do countless like minded right wing bulldozers. Unless America suspends belief, acknowledges mindsets of  formidable conservative brick walls and vows to extract voter outrage from every last citizen – Trump will stain the White House in 2020.

Hurricane Trump, Category 5 Disaster…


Behemoth Hurricane Dorian is something of a mystery to Donald Trump. Its anyone’s guess if he can spell hurricane, let alone fathom how they form or what they’re capable of. Heading into the weekend a flicker of presidential duty saw Trump cancel travel plans to Poland and meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenisky to monitor Dorian at home. Home being Camp David – no wait, seems he left Camp David on Marine One to play golf at his course in Sterling, Virginia. Trump crony, Senator Rick Scott of Florida told Fox News –

“We got updates while I was there,” Scott said. “He got updates, I know he played golf yesterday and got updates while he was playing golf.”

Today Trump said –

“We don’t even know what’s coming at us. All we know is it’s possibly the biggest. I have — I’m not sure that I’ve ever even heard of a Category 5. I knew it existed. And I’ve seen some Category 4’s — you don’t even see them that much,” Trump said at a briefing with officials at FEMA’s headquarters in Washington, DC.

“But a Category 5 is something that — I don’t know that I’ve ever even heard the term other than I know it’s there. That’s the ultimate, and that’s what we have unfortunately,” he added, in reference to Hurricane Dorian.

Levels of Trumps’ flippant ignorance are staggering.  Dorian is the 4th category 5 storm to impact Americans since Trump blew into the Oval Office – Irma, 8 months into his presidency, Puerto Rico devastating Maria and Michael last October. Between landfalls of Irma and Maria, Trump said he “never even knew” they (Category 5) existed. The man is a category 5 disaster .

Do we give up? Scream? Hope he isn’t re-elected?  Here’s an idea – what if we put him in a wind tunnel with a golf club and bucket of balls? Never mind, he’d simper “fake” wind velocity, blame Hillary, Mexicans, eagle killing wind energy, climate change clowns and left wing media fear mongering. How about this, we reclassify meteorological cauldrons in terms Trump understands, no more F scale tornados, category 1-5 hurricanes. Lets lump all natural disasters together, rate them on the Golf Scale.

Oh man, see Trump smile. Thumbs up, now he understands.

 

Fool Me Once…..


Pondering a personal reality check, in March 2016, I wrote –

Settle down America, Donald Trump will never become President. Trump is America’s Rob Ford. Just as Toronto’s crack smoking mayor enjoyed a period of inexplicable popularity, Trump’s narcissistic, racist, misogynistic buffoonery will crash and burn. Similarities between Ford and Trump reside in ability of both men to exhibit reckless disregard for traditional politicking.

Disregard is a powerful weapon. Unexpected, refreshing, born of screwed up priorities. Gathering momentum, fueled by unspoken discontent, it penetrates stagnant air with herculean force. Caught unaware, disgruntled populations equate disregard with solutions.

Bolstered by celebrity, Trump entered politics with a haughty declaration, he would make America great again. Basking in waves of rhapsodic affirmation, Trump preened his vision of magnificence. Conservatives dismissed arrogance as patriotism, lining up to hang on his every word. Unscripted tirades mocked political correctness, lack of propriety made it abundantly clear – he didn’t know how, or was interested in playing politics. Overnight, Trump became the voice of blind conservatism.

Trump made it OK to blame, he gave fear direction and purpose. Elated numskulls embraced blame without social restraint. Build a wall to keep Mexicans out (financed in part by seizing money illegal immigrants send to family in Mexico ) ,round up and deport an estimated 11 million undocumented Mexicans, teach China how to do business ( after all, China created the climate change “hoax” to undermine the U.S. economy ), bomb the shit out of ISIS, ban Muslims from entering America, close all mosques, create a Muslim registry – blame black, brown and yellow, music to the ears of America’s white underbelly.

Disregard lances a boil, relief is immediate. Donald Trump embodies rivulets of ooze escaping that wound. Complications arise when reliance on disregard obliterate common sense. Buoyed by waves of delusional disregard, Donald Trump doesn’t realize he’ll never be President. Blame, exclusion, mockery of civil and constitutional rights, ignorance, inflammatory contempt for those daring to question his greatness – wait to deliver a sobering reality. Wake up Donald, do the math – America doesn’t have enough pinched white minds to close the deal. I’m not sure who or what you’ll blame, but assure you I’ll find your attempt entertaining.

 

Trump Crock Of The Week


 

Yesterday Manhattan fancy pants and self declared billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on charges of masterminding a sex-trafficking operation involving underage girls. No stranger to justice department scrutiny, Epstein likely smirked defiant hubris. I wonder if he muttered “do you know who I am?”. Save your breath Jeff, we know who you are, you’ve had a good run, but the jig is up. Tonight the world knows all about your dirty little 2008 plea deal with then U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida Alex Acosta. Charged with luring girls as young as 14 to your parties, you plead guilty to a lessor charge, spent your 13 month sentence on day passes and registered as a sex offender. No big deal, right Jeff?

In 2002, Trump said “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said he loves beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side”

Today Alex Acosta is Trump’s Secretary of Labor. In case you missed the memo, Trump feels terrible for condemnation of Acosta. How dare Democrats call for his resignation? Do they know who they’re dealing with? Oh yes, we know. We know Acosta is a billionaire boy’s club pawn, we know the latest indictment of Epstein is sealed pending charges against a second conspirator. Hopefully that second is Donald Trump.

Federal Judge Orders Hearing in Donald Trump Rape Lawsuit

 

Do You Mind If I Play Through?


Well known Canadian political cartoonist Michael de Adder found out the hard way where Canada draws the line. More accurately, where employer Brunswick News butters their toast. Brunswick News is owned by the Irving family, 8th richest Canadian dynasty whose billions are credited to Irving Oil. Their oil, gas, shipping and transportation interests rely heavily on cross border good will.

Canada’s Richest People: The Irving Family

de Adder was “let go”, his contract terminated when social media took flight with this image –

Seems Canadian billionaires are no different than America’s filthy rich. Huffington Post political cartoonist Wes Tyrell tweeted –

Wes Tyrell @tyrell_wes

Whether the powers that be in America would make the connection between de Adder’s cartoon and Brunswick News doesn’t matter.
It seems that the Irving’s don’t want to take that chance. So they cut all ties.

An oil company has no business owning newspapers.

Anyway you slice it, this Canadian agrees with growing public sentiment sparked by actors George Takei and Mark Hamill – de Adder’s cartoon is Pulitzer Prise worthy.

Are You Insane?


Seriously now, is Donald Trump insane? Ponder Trump’s plan to withdraw deportation protection for families of active troops.
