 👼🏻🎅🕵   IT TAKES A LOVING VILLAGE OF CARING   

          PEOPLE TO BRING UP A CHILD,    👷👮🏼👲

 💀👻👽     IT TAKES ONE DERANGED CHILD IN THE  

     WHITE HOUSE TO BRING DOWN A NATION  👺👎👹


Disclaimer:  These are articles and excerpts of interest by a variety of great journalists, and much lesser talented ones like myself are about topics I care about with an abundance of occasional personal comment thrown in, to add some humor, insight, disagreement, predictions and I make no claims to be the author of the articles, but I will defend their thoughts and mine with my being and insight. I am privileged to know some great writers and bring their insight and thoughts to you. 

I have many favorite authors and writers, in particular I follow closely Fareed Zakaria, Ruth Marcus, and Eugene Robinson. Being a lousy writer, born into Brooklyn linguistics and hated by my English teachers, I appreciate their work , and the work of many, many others who only wish to bring the truth to the forefront.  

Their written word supersedes speeches, lies, rumors, party propaganda, any words expressed by “ TV talking heads who are labeled  strategists” which is basically slang for bullshitters with self-inflicted titles**.  

**  Sometimes someone with credentials shows up but many are what we called consultants when someone was out of work.  All you needed was in some cases to invent a title of a important sounding foundation or think tank and declare yourself the “Grand Mofftee”.    It also includes those who belong to a one person twitter account or social media whom I refer to or  I call 
“Nit-twits by twats”.
 

Note: The word twat (s) is widely used as a derogatory epithet, especially in British English, referring to a person considered obnoxious or stupid. Since the present administration is infused and polluted with stupid people, we used the plural acceptable word “twats”.  “ Thus Nit-Twit-Twats”.  Not to be confused with a similar genital reference, whereas we chose to use  Scumbag (s) instead, now commonly acceptable in publication since the new regime took office.   


The writers I like do however fly the same flight plans I have flown.  My map is a love of country and freedom for which many have made the ultimate sacrifice and a distinct approach to those who would desecrate those values.  Truth, Honesty, Honor, Commitment and Valor are not the buzzwords of the current administration.  

Lieing, deceit, contradiction, corruption, distortion, distraction, stupidity, egotistic unsafe values, lack of talent, bravado and sheer bullshit are the hallmarks of this administration, and worse, many too many ignorant followers believe in Donald Trump...

He calls it the base. . .  I have nothing but compassion for you the base, you not only will hurt yourself, you will send hurt on the rest of America, eventually your kids and even the world who also does not believe in him.  And...


If you can’t handle truth and still are a believer after the facts, you need help.  I hope you find it before the country really goes further down the toilet.  Its bad enough you voted wrong, but not admitting a mistake is then worse. The Sioux Indians had a saying, “Which is worse, the liar or the one who tells his lies”.  You are because you follow the liar and hater, no better than him.

In the case of the President, ( Press code name:  Donald the Dork ) he is both, he lies and then denies it the next day with a follow-up lie and calls it fake news, since he is the fake, can we not argue that he is the source of the lies? 

 

The sweeper, AKA VP Mike Pence, praising Trump because he knows those that see Trump for what he is, will either rise to the presidency by assassination or impeachment. Thats how he gets a seat in the Oval Office.  He and others use divinity as their calling card.  Some wear it on their sleeve but he has it tattooed on his forehead, and others invoking GOD more than the other TV preachers.  

We call Mike the A-Men-er and he as boring, stiff, evangelically corrupt, and about as politically correct as anyone in Washington.  Godly rhetoric, prayerfully sad, bully pulpit boring, aspiring or perspiring as a wet towel, but covering the Presidents ass by praising him with song and lyrics and parking his forehead as far up as possible.  


The Sioux were right, the teller of false stories is as bad or worse than the writer.


By Ruth Marcus,  Deputy Editorial Page Editor December 22 at 7:58 PM  

Here, for me at least, is the comforting paradox of the age of Trump: I have never respected a president less, nor loved my country more.

This sentiment may startle.  It may rankle, even. It comes in a week that witnessed the passage of the worst domestic policy legislation of my lifetime, followed by the now ritual but always repulsive lauding of President Trump.
First by the Cabinet courtiers summoned for that purpose; next by Republican lawmakers willing to lay it on just as thick — even more nauseating, because they know better than the servile flattery of their words and because they occupy, theoretically anyway, a coequal branch. 

And this patriotic burst comes disconcertingly in a year that has seen the public display of the racist, xenophobic worst that America has to offer. These ugly impulses existed long before Donald Trump’s pursuit of the presidency and will, sadly, outlast him. 

But candidate Trump diligently tilled the soil in which this hatred flourishes and, more appallingly, President Trump tolerated its deadly consequences in Charlottesville. “Very fine people on both sides,” indeed. Trump’s own secretary of state, when asked whether those comments represented American values, was moved to say, “The president speaks for himself.” How true, in every sense of that sentence. 

Has there been a more embarrassing year for the United States? Thinking Americans cringe at what foreign countries and their leaders make of us and our president, with his reckless upending of international agreements, his bigoted and poorly executed travel ban, his unashamed ignorance, his reckless tweets, his endless susceptibility to flattery. 

Moral Americans — and the Alabama Senate results suggest there remains, pardon the phrase, a moral majority — recoil at the president’s support for a candidate credibly accused of molesting a 14-year-old, at his incessant lies, at his (and his family’s) unabashed willingness to use government service as just another pocket-lining opportunity. This litany is made all the more disgusting by the complicity of so many members of his party. 

And yet, I am thankful for Trump in this sense: He has unleashed my inner patriot. I love my country, for all its flaws and for all its flawed leader.  It is worth the fighting for. I knew this, always, on an intellectual level. The Trump presidency has made me feel it, viscerally and passionately. The ideals enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and implemented through the careful structures and capacious phrases of the Constitution do not merely compel our respect. In the Trump era, they require our passionate defense. 

Once we took for granted, as a given of American democracy, such fundamental values as freedom of the press, the rule of law, the separation of powers, the independence of the judiciary. Now we have a president who veers between failure to understand their importance and deliberate efforts to undermine them. 

He is similarly heedless of the qualities that have always made America great, most notably its willingness not only to enshrine these values at home but also to play a leadership role in nurturing them abroad. Trump’s America is bristlingly insular and driven by zero-sum selfishness. Mine is welcoming, idealistic and generous — a shining city, not a walled fortress. 

Those of us on the more liberal side of the political spectrum have too often and too easily ceded the mantle of patriot to conservatives. Indeed, there can be an off-putting, chest-thumping aspect to traditional, bumper-sticker patriotism: “My country, right or wrong.” “America, love it or leave it.”

George Washington, in his farewell address, advised fellow citizens to “guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.” It is hard not to recall that admonition when listening to Trump’s faux-patriotic posturing against kneeling NFL players and his demand that they show “total respect for our national anthem, for our flag, for our country.” 

Real patriotism would be to recognize, as the Supreme Court did three decades ago in overturning a criminal conviction for burning the American flag, that “we do not consecrate the flag by punishing its desecration, for in doing so we dilute the freedom that this cherished emblem represents.” 

Real patriotism would be not to denounce the “Russia hoax” but to insist that Congress — and for that matter, special counsel Robert S. Mueller III — get to the bottom of what happened in the 2016 election and, even more imperative, that the United States strengthen its defenses to prevent future meddling. 

That is the patriotism Trump has awoken, in me and so many others. Because our fundamental fight is not against Trump. It is for America.

ALABAMA SCUMBAG REPORT
TRUMP LOSES
BANNON FRACKS IT ALL UP
BRUNHILDA THREATS TO CNN
TRUTH and FREEDOM WON
ALABAMA YOU ROCK!

The Alabama citizens should rejoice.   New respect for breaking old ties and customs and something no one mentions.  The separation of church and state.  The Evangelical approach, fire and brimstone is an antiquated philosophy held onto by weak minds incapable of a pure thought process.  Our founding fathers built this country based on the separation of Church and State, not the process that says their beliefs are right and everyone else is wrong.

Tuesday’s (DEC 12, 2017) special US Senate election in Alabama was never destined to bring good news for the Republican Party, no matter the outcome.  But, getting rid of Moore was a good thing for the party, they might of lost a seat but the seat was on a broken toilet.

But the stunning victory by Democrat Doug Jones was a devastating blow to a party wracked by divisions and intra-party rivalries and a humiliating defeat for President Trump who once again is left alone holding his member in his hand since all those accusations about him trying to get someone else to hold it, well... they have surfaced.

Beyond that, the tumultuous election served to expose further the fissures, fault lines and rivalries that have only widened in the 13 months since Trump captured the White House.  

In addition the endorsement by the biggest honesty failure in American Presidential history, Donald the Dork twitted himself into a club even deeper with his tweets against the Senator from New York promoting the real side of him which appears to be sexist in nature.  He and Roy Moore are portrayed as “Scumbags of a similar feather (a metaphor for similarities) flock-up things together”.

In the closing weeks of the 2016 presidential campaign, Mr. Trump was put on the defensive by the appearance of an “Access Hollywood” tape. He was heard in the recording boasting of sexual conquests and celebrity entitlement, and the ensuing reaction led to a number of women coming forward to describe specific episodes that included walking in on them changing during beauty pageants as well as groping and kissing them. 

But Mr. Trump seemed to have weathered those accusations until the flood of recent allegations against powerful men revived the issue of sexual harassment with a newfound fury.  His advice to get women to your bidding was to just grab them in the crotch.  This isn't the first time this week Trump has weighed in on politicians engaging in sexual misconduct. He attacked Democratic Sen. Al Franken after a woman accused him of groping her in 2006. 

This is charged territory for the president, because more than a dozen women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct, ranging from inappropriate comments to assault. He also infamously once bragged on tape about grabbing women by the genitals, saying, "When you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything."

That tape kicked off a flood of accusations, which, taken together, suggest a decades-long pattern of behavior. NPR has compiled a list of the things women have alleged against him.   ALLEGATIONS


SECRET SERVICE CODE NAME
NO BRAINER BIGMOUTH
And “ Sanhilda” the CIA code name for Sara Huckster Sanders, the  big mouthed daughter of Mike “ Bass Player” Huckabee another evangelical nutcase, wins the Alfred E. Neumann award for “What me worry”.

Her win was solidified, really solidified, by the unanimous hatred of the press corps for her.  Her incompetent work ethic was outstanding.  She spent the day driving an asphalt truck patching up all the holes Donald put in the pavement of normalcy. 

The election provided the capstone to a year of tumult inside the GOP, and at a time when the party controls the levers of power in Washington and states across the country, the Alabama campaign was one more reminder that this is a party facing a major identity crisis and no easy answers for how to resolve it.

Trump suffered mightily after fully embracing Moore in the final weeks of the campaign, despite credible allegations that Moore had engaged in sexually improper behavior with teenage girls when he was in his 30s.  TRUMP felt, so what?  

President Trump’s tweeting Tuesday morning set off the usual scramble among White House reporters for all manner of clarifications and amplifications. Look at the tweet, and it’s not hard to understand why:

Ever the self-proclaimed “counterpuncher,” Trump was tweeting in response to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s call for his resignation over sexual-assault allegations. In turn, Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) called the tweet a “sexist smear.”


“SANHILDA” STEPS OVER THE LINE

A chance to corner the president on this matter arose as the president participated in a signing of the National Defense Authorization Act, with a crew of reporters on the scene in what is known as a “pool spray.” CNN’s Jim Acosta was there to witness the moment. 

After Trump signed the document, he got up and began walking out of the Roosevelt Room. Acosta asked: “Mr. President, what did you mean when you said that Kirsten Gillibrand would do anything for a campaign contribution?”Good question! The president turned his head with a glare and proceeded to exit.  No answer.

Acosta told CNN colleague Wolf Blitzer about how desperately the White House wanted to sidestep that uncomfortable encounter. “In the moments before I asked the president the question in the Roosevelt Room as he was signing the National Defense Authorization bill, the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, pulled me aside — this was prior to me asking that question of the president.

And she warned me that if I asked the president a question at this pool spray, as we call them, that she could not promise that I would be allowed into a pool spray again,” said Acosta. “ Wolf, this was a direct threat coming from the press secretary to me, warning me not to ask a question and, of course, I went ahead and asked the question anyway and the president did not respond. But Wolf, as you know, we don’t respond to threats, we’re not going to be intimidated.” 

She got her bigmouth rhetorical and demeaning answers from her campaign for her Evangelical loser father and denial “ Fake News”  bullshit from Donald the Dork.   


EUGENE ROBINSON     WASHINGTON POST

We have a president who neither understands nor respects the basic norms of American democracy. Make no mistake: Donald Trump is a true aberration. There is no figure like him in US history, for which we should be thankful.  Trump’s inexperience is unique; he is the only president never to have served in government or the military. 

This weakness is exponentially compounded by his ignorance of both policy and process, his lack of curiosity, his inability to focus and his tremendous insecurity. He refuses to acknowledge his shortcomings, let alone come to terms with them; and he desperately craves the kind of sycophantic adulation that George Washington, a genuine hero, pointedly rejected.

Trump is a # FakeHero. He strings along his supporters with promises he has no idea how to keep. Like many a would-be strongman before him, he defines himself politically by the fights he picks; he erects straw men — faceless “elites,” cable television hosts, Muslims, Mexicans, nonexistent individuals or groups waging an imaginary “war on Christmas” — because authoritarians always need enemies. Yet his ego is a delicate hothouse flower, threatened by the slightest puff of criticism. 

The Founders, mindful of their own faults, ultimately designed a system to contain a rogue president. They limited his elective term to four years, gave checking and balancing powers to the legislative and judicial branches, and designed impeachment as a last-ditch remedy.  The Trump presidency compels all of us to be mindful of our constitutional duties.

Congress must assert its powers of oversight. One reason the signers of the Declaration gathered in Philadelphia to pledge “our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor” to the cause of independence was that they saw the mingling of royal power and British commercial interests as corrupt. We now have a president whose far-flung business empire — which he has refused to divest, and which his family still operates — presents myriad potential conflicts of interest. Trump has deepened the swamp, not drained it; and Congress has a duty to sort through the muck.

Congress must also let Trump know, in no uncertain terms, that any attempt to impede or disrupt special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into Russian election meddling will have the gravest consequences. Trump should be told that firing Mueller would automatically be considered grounds for impeachment.

ED NOTE:  Simply put, he is a Scumbag.




PRESIDENTIAL SCUMBAG or
REALITY STAR SCUMBAG, SAME DIFFERENCE 

Donald Trump, professional wrestling aficionado at left, in this April 1, 2007, file photo, with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, center, held by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, prepares to have his hair cut off by Trump, and Bobby Lashley, right, after Lashley defeated Umaga at Wrestlemania 23 at Ford Field in Detroit. 

A doctored video of Trump tackling a person with a CNN logo for a head, posted on Twitter July 2, has caused a lot of discourse online.   (Great Photo: Carlos Osorio, AP)

Vince McMahon is the husband of Linda McMahon who was selected by TRUMP after contributing lots of money, millions to become the Secretary Cabinet member in Small Business Development. 

She occasionally made on-screen appearances, most notably in a wrestling “ Staged feud” with her husband which climaxed at WrestleMania X-Seven.  She won by kicking him in the testicles.  She commented it was easy, “ He’s got big balls”.

McMahon and her husband became wealthy through WWE’s success, and the McMahon family name is now synonymous with the professional wrestling industry.  An industry, called “ Sports entertainment”  is a steroid and stunt driven world and as phony and degrading as our political spectrum.   She should fit right in. Between her and Betsy Devos, business and education are in trouble.  Both Donald picks and both incompetent to lead.

In 2009, Linda McMahon left WWE to run as a Republican for a seat in the United States Senate from Connecticut, but lost to Democratic Party nominee Richard Blumenthal in the general election of 2010.  She tried again and was the Republican nominee for Connecticut’s other Senate seat in the 2012 race, but lost to Democratic Representative Chris Murphy. 

In Senate races, she loses twice.  It tells you the good citizens of Connecticut didn’t want anything to do with her, but TRUMP thought otherwise.  Might have to do with donations (Millions) and the McMahon’s commonality of being a fake fraud and reality star just like Donald, the fake President.  A match made in heaven via the ring. (pun)

ED NOTE:  The perfect Scenario, two Scumbags, one picture.


THE GOP CHALLENGES
N. KOREA TO A DANCE OFF
There is one thing the GOP does right!   Obstruction Dancing... The GOP attacks on all levels, the pitch is to the same drummer, with the same beat and after numerous talking head interviews on the TV, it’s the same coordinated rhetoric.  Vile and attacking, all on the same script, no solutions, no answers just attack, sometimes personally.  Thats how scumbags fight.  The only thing the GOP does right is they LOCKSTEP and know how to attack because they offer nothing but previous failure.  

They quote they are the party of Reagan, a great actor, a great compassionate man and statesman.  But a lousy economist, Reaganomics failed bad. The GOP SS ( Sorry Scumbags)  miss the mark, they are more like our friends in North Korea and a failure to follow the party line can lead to excommunication.  

A GOP politician started every conversation blaming Obama and never answered the question asked by the interviewer.  Because they had no answers or solutions.   Goose steppers.  Where do they come from?


DANCING SOLDIERS - CANNON FODDER
The GOP really reminds me of those fabulous dancing soldiers you see in all Chinese, North Korean, Iranian soldier formations.
 The goose step a modification of Hitlers Storm troopers have made it worthy of appearing on  “ Dancing with the Red Stars”.

The North Koreans have developed a pacy, highly stylized form of the infamous military march, which is said to have originated in 18th-century Prussia.  It’s a little bump they added, quite nice, worthy of a ten in Red Star productions, international dance competition.

Favored by leaders of totalitarian regimes ever since – including Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Castro and Stalin – 

📢  The “ Stechschritt”  is intended to intimidate the enemy by demonstrating both discipline and devotion”.   In the West however,  it was determined the step is used to get the person in front of them to go into the minefield first. 


SWELLED HEADS AMONG THE GENERALS
But the other anomaly is the style of the hats they wear.  Higher the rank, the bigger the hat to accompany the huge amount of technical information and populist cranial crap that Kim Jung Un wrote about himself.  Praise, worship and self adoration en-mass so they can write them down in their little books they all take notes in.

The little family killer questions them the next day and if they are without notes, they will be with-out heads.   It was also noted the men wearing these toilet bowls on their heads must have epoxied them to stay in place or they would blow off during sandstorms or rallies the little Hitler throws.

Technical:  The toilet bowl hats are expansive to allow the crap really stupid, idolatry they are fed to expand and not injure their thin braincells. They also serve as Porto-lets when needed.  Since crap flows downhill, they can stand on their heads, the larger surface making it easier like chess pieces.  Lower ranking soldiers shown above are earning their big hats.  

The higher the rank, the larger the bowl and General Fumd Duk Shon literally went air-born for miles when a huge gust of wind lifted him off the ground after using super glue to hold it in place. It broke loose and he fell to the ground fortunately he survived. 

The supreme leader Kim Jung Un had new secret special glue to hold Fumd Duk Shon’s hat in place. The glue did hold...  But he had to shoot him down using his favorite 23 mm anti-aircraft machine gun because when Fumd went airborne the second time he was headed for South Korea and possibly asking for refugee status... problem solved,  and the new glue used for missile solid fuel casings remained a state secret.


OLD AGENDA AGAIN 
RONALD REAGAN 
The Reagan fairy tail.   Then TRUMP came along and when he won the ball-less GOP refused to stand up against TRUMP.  Cowards, they do nothing, same thing they did the last eight years, nothing. The GOP attitude is other than the grace of GOD, we’ll decide how you live by privatization which puts more money in the coffers of the owners and the rich and less for the individuals needing services.  And the rich donate to us and we sing KUMBAYA around the stock market table.

At times think of them as the land owners in the old south.  And you just might be the slaves, you just don’t know it.  We call that ignorance. When the federal monies go back to the states, you the private individual actually will lose rights, privileges and those entitlements only surviving because they are federal to cover all Americans and cannot be played with like gerrymandering is.

The stock market at 22,000 may wind up at 24,000 points is incredible and shows specifically the health of our richest fellow Americans.  Not the everyday screaming citizen idiots who sold their country out for a hat and free signs at TRUMP meetings.  

And I have compassion for those naive folks in West Virginia praising TRUMP for the 2000 coal miners that went back to work,  (A deal in the working way before he took office)  have basically received nothing new in benefits a few leftover hats maybe.  Same factory that sells TRUMP hats on line.  

When they totally lose their insurance and get sick, when facilities like Planned Parenthood can’t provide services for their wives, don’t look for the rich guy who just got a million dollar raise and is trading his 120 foot yacht for a 145 foot yacht. I know someone who did.  He has his priorities.  I’ll say it again, he has his priorities, and he could care less about you.  

Trickle down tried twice never worked and won’t work, the classes are too separated.  In any other place in the world, treason would be on the menu, not here, the GOP party has no balls, they are nothing but greedy eunuchs, ball-less serving the kings harem.  

The good things that president Obama fought for ( protection for the poor) are going to be wiped out by a Madman and the GOP who couldn’t care less about you with a plan that failed even Reagan’s dreams.  President Reagan, possibly one of the most popular Presidents had the attributes of compassion, strength and likability, something missing today other than in lies told by a man who loves you all.  If you believe him, you truly are gullible.


REAGAN WAS GREAT BUT NOT AN ACCOUNTANT
It’s the oldest GOP tool, a mantra of deceit and naive people believe the lies they promote.  It’s the tinkle in trickle down. The “R” was Reagan, beloved and concerned but a lousy economist. Love him for strength, but weak in economics.

Reaganomics,  is a theory of economics by President Ronald Reagan and the name given to it by Paul Harvey.  It refers to the policies promoted during the 1980s. These policies are commonly associated with supply-side economics, referred to as trickle-down economics, or voodoo economics by political opponents, and free-market economics by political advocates.

Somebody wake up that moron as speaker of the house, Mr. Paul Gutless and explain his program almost identical to Reagan’s won’t work.   The program does not include nor give consideration to the greed program which essentially makes the rich richer and the poor poorer.  That’s fact. Anything else you feed it,  is bullshit.

The four pillars of Reagan's economic policy were to reduce the growth of government spending, reduce the federal income tax and capital gains tax, reduce government regulation, and tighten the money supply in order to reduce inflation.  It did more harm than good and only hard core GOP lemmings swear by it. Simple they have nothing else to offer, they care little or nothing about the poor.

Trumps goal is simple, he wants to run the country like he ran his business. 
TRUMP used you and your future, the hatred he brought out of you was similar to the citizens of Germany before the second World War and the divisiveness you promulgated will come back and haunt you just as it destroyed Germany and was the basis for the birth of the Soviet Union. 

He is a populist, it simply means he tells you what you want to hear, makes promises he can’t keep and in time his policies will do more harm than good. 

The worst part is the GOP doesn’t have the balls to stop him, they are what they have been, a party of complainers with nothing in the rhelm of good social change, ideas or programs. They are takers not givers.   The GOP waltzed itself or goose stepped itself into a box basing eight years of obstructionism against the first Black President.



EDUCATION SECRETARY 
SHE IS THE SWAMP
His selection of the educational secretary Betsy DeVos, a rich GOP supporter with failures in educational programs makes me believe she will destroy school systems and convert them to charter or private schools only the rich can afford.  More Republican tax credits for the poor.  Not to mention again and again when you earn nothing a tax credit is useless.  

In June, the secretary of education, Betsy DeVos, announced plans to dismantle a set of Obama-era policies devised to protect students and taxpayers from predatory for-profit colleges.  Yet data released in the final days of the previous administration shows that the existing rules have proven more effective at shutting down bad college programs than even the most optimistic backers could have hoped.

The rules that Ms. DeVos wants to repeal are called the gainful employment regulations. For all for-profit programs, and any nondegree employment certificate programs at public or nonprofit colleges, the education department compares how much the typical student borrows versus how much they earn after graduation.

If the ratio is too high — if students borrow lots of money and can’t get well-paying jobs — the program is deemed “failing.” A program that fails in two out of three years becomes ineligible for federal financial aid.  Since many for-profit programs get up to 90 percent of their revenue through the Department of Education, the penalty will almost surely shut them down.

Before it could complete the rules, the Obama administration had to spend years fighting through a thicket of lawsuits filed by the for-profit college industry. Eleven days before President Trump’s inauguration, the Department of Education released the first list of failing programs. Ms. DeVos has extended the original deadline for appealing the findings, and recently announced plans to rewrite the rules. Simple lots of her friends own those diploma colleges.  And they make money and get federal tuition grants.

But a close analysis of the more than 500 failing programs that haven’t appealed their status reveals something interesting: A substantial majority of them, 300 or so, have already been shut down — even though colleges are not yet required to do so. The gainful employment test turns out to be an accurate way of identifying programs that for-profit colleges themselves don’t think are worth saving, as well as identifying programs run by colleges that are on the brink of bankruptcy and dissolution. It shows these Diploma Colleges are as fake as the numbers and policies DeVos puts out.

The gainful employment results suggest why. Students who earned a bachelor’s degree in fashion design at Sanford-Brown College’s now-defunct Chicago campus left school with over $45,000 in federal and institutional loans. But they earned less than $21,000 per year, before taxes, food and rent. That’s barely above the minimum wage for a family of three. Only 29 percent of students who started the program graduated on time.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER
SCUMBAGS FOREVER
In case no one told you... TRUMP and the GOP Republicans will oppose all that stuff like medical care, it’s what they do best. They already have scared the Insurance companies to pull out, in an effort to kill OBAMACARE.  Thats what drove them out and if you are too stupid to understand that, you will when you get cancelled.  

Hey stupid,  you just helped them raise your rates with no program to save you.  Wear that TRUMP hat down to the hospital and tell the medic personnel TRUMP will handle the bill, Mitch McConnell will pay for your meds, Paul Ryan will change your dressings.  And Mike Pence will pray for you, it’s what he does best , praising the LORD, Jesus and Trump.  Sometimes not in that order.  Then watch what little savings you had will vanish.

I have no compassion for you, you didn’t have the guts for reality, you voted for the TV Reality, you actually supported the rich and screwed your fellow plebeians.  

In case plebeians is a new word for you, it means the commoner, the working class people, mostly me and you, us, lovers of hamburgers , pulled pork, spaghetti with Marinara and an ice-cold Budweiser.  We toast with a beer or a wine off the shelf.  We don’t have wine cellars, with 500 dollar Chateau Le Fart 1932,  we have a fridge with Barefoot and Mogen David... and we don’t have 250,000 dollars and a credit check for entry into MAR-A-LARGO.  Hopefully one of the hurricanes will clobber that bastion of elitist bovine end products and destroy it.

What the GOP calls entitlement, the Democrats called compassion.  You just screwed yourself.  The schmucks with hats who screamed “Make America Great” should have screamed “Tell the truth”  when in six months almost 220 days now basically nothing has happened except the lies and corruption that has surfaced.  According to Politico and The Washington Post his lies and untruths have exceeded 1000.

What he did do was get rid of some of the checks and balances and gave more money to the rich. So a corporate big wig instead of getting 20 million a year in salary, will get 25 million due to more profit and pay less taxes on that amount.

One of his biggest supporters (In more than one sense of the word) at 300 plus pounds was the Republican Governor of New Jersey Chris “Krispy Creme” Christie.   They have several things in common.  Trump is the lowest scoring president in job approval at 33%, about the size of the GOP base.  

And Christie is the lowest ranked Governor approval numbers of all the governors at yesterdays poll indicated 15%.  After this weekend with the beach closures in NJ and he was the only one who got access to use the beaches, that did drop.  Politically Christie will die of self-inflicted wounds.  Of course TRUMP dumped him, but it still relates to one of natures strongest calls, “Birds of a feather, flock together”.  In this case, they deserved each other, “Flocking up” is their common denominator.  



THERE IS NO SUCH THING
AS THE  “Liberal Media"
Are you lacking common sense and understanding how the government and the media have to work together.  Or are you too naive, maybe even poorly judgmental to understand the media and the judiciary are the real checks and balances of the Presidency and his [TRUMP) attacks are to prevent the truth from really coming out and it is the media that is protecting you from T-Rump.  

Trump gets picked on by the media because he is a very sick individual, who lies, distracts, cheats and is not worthy of the job or position. Thats the cornucopia of what he tweets and represents and it is not good for the country , you, me and the world.  

This is why we have a press corps, it is their job, the papers and press report what he says and does.   He makes the news and then denies it. He is the “Fake News” he challenges.   His mastery of shifting stories, distractions, and counter-distractions comes from a long time realty star scripting.  He is a fake as his hairdo. He is dangerous.  It took Obama eight years to get something done and clean up George Bush’s horrid performance and  get some relief to people. It will take fifteen years to fix TRUMP and the poor and middle class, the immigrants will all suffer.

I was blessed, not with wealth, fancy cars, expensively rich homes, nor diamonds and gold.  I was blessed, being self taught as one who questions things.  I am a researcher, sometimes on a quest... I look for the truth, anomalies, solutions and creativity is my carrier. 

I see nothing good in this relationship between the Trumpster, and the country.  He uses the media to make accusations of the things he is guilty of, its an old tactic used in politics.  Some of the clowns on FOX call him great with an ability to read the audience.  My friend said same schmucks different day.  

He calls Hillary a liar and starts the chant. Truthfully he has the lowest score in all of Politicos records for telling the truth. He is a liar and bullshitter.  Maybe Hitler was better but we’ll never know.  He calls it FAKE NEWS and he is the one saying it.  He just in 200 days topped 1000, thats one thousand verifiable lies by POLITICO.

I predicted this the day he announced his run two years ago.  Some thought him a clown, the fools, there are all kinds of clowns he is not one who makes you laugh. His cabinet is all the rich, the wealthy, the prominent and none of whom lived paycheck to paycheck like some of their made up resumes presume and to impress you.  

Trump is for Trump and a few others.  He should be in jail, not the Whitehouse or as some call it...”Kremlin East”.  His dealings in the past with 3500 lawsuits and investigations should have clued an idiot into the fact that there is something wrong with this man. 

His tirades and Nit-Twits were indications of a destroyer not a builder and you fell for it.  Read the Leninist papers and you will see the real plan behind all this charade as president. 

Why has he really not come out against Putin because he admires him and wants the same controls Putin has.  And the Leninists did the same thing decades ago. Get rid of the press, the judiciary, and the media, and create the fourth part of the system we have.  

You promoted and aided a hatred of the establishment, just like the Brown Shirts did in the thirties, you chanted wore hats and applauded the leader.   Your medical relief you damned at every rally with chants of “ Down with Obamacare” will be gone and 12-24 million of you will have no medical care.  You will get what you asked for.  I wish you well, he doesn’t give a crap.
