Disclaimer: These are articles of interest by a variety of great journalists about topics I care about with an occasional personal comment thrown in, to add some humor, insight, disagreement, predictions and I make no claims to be the author of a large percentage of the articles, but I will defend these thoughts and reports with my being.

They 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.  


THE T-RUMP has brought lying , cheating, divisiveness, prejudice, hatred and incompetence to reign higher than ever, and a few of the GOP voting base are asking, “What did we do?”  Those same folks when they find out in the coming months and years how much, what little they had, they lost at the hands of the T-RUMP and the GOP.  

Thats if they survive the broken promises and lies, they might be able to redeem themselves by not getting anywhere near a voting booth again.  Frankly they have screwed up enough, they are the ones I blame for the forthcoming desecration, of values, personal freedoms and caring for your fellow man. 

T-RUMPS cabinet almost to a member reflects those who care little about you.  Mammon is their GOD.  And it was Mahatma Ghandi who said, " Dislodge the money God called "Mammon" from the throne and find a corner for a poor God.  I think America has a very big future but in spite of what is said to the contrary, it has a dismal future if it swears by “Mammon".  "Mammon" has never been known to be a friend of any of us to the last. He is always a false friend”.  

And it’s not a Conservative nor Liberal approach I believe in, I am an Independent voter politically speaking, but caring for others and lending a hand is a human and moral approach.   The TRUMP cabinet with an estimated 14.5 Billion dollars worth is not exactly the swamp drained people we want to represent the middle and struggling lower class, they are the ones who have all the money and don’t try to make it paycheck to paycheck.

“Make America Great Again”, it will never happen, unless the rising decent of the populace wakes up now before any more damage is done by this phony and liar.  Town halls, marches, and gatherings are building a force that will change things in 2018 and 2020.  Sooner or later Mammon catches up to the greedy, and the GOP will self destruct.   Let them build that wall and then throw Donald and his crew over it.

Take your signs, slogans, cute hats and patriotic TRUMP outfits to the dump, not the cleaners.   Herr T-RUMP has awakened and championed the dark side,  anti-semitism, prejudice, attacks on the transgender community, voting rights, women’s rights pollution, even Sweden somehow got dragged in.  Nothing is sacred anymore except the self adornment he promotes on himself through his nit-tweets.

Someone wrote yesterday gave me a thought and agree:   He is who he is. Just follow his business dealings for decades.  Lying, cheating contractors who couldn’t pay legitimate earnings to their workers, his numerous bankruptcies which avoided payment to others, and a self-indulgent picture of grandiosity.  


Blame the American Voter, Fareed Zakaria once said, “ The American voter is the least informed voter relying mostly on name recognition”, and I added “ This side of a Communist Country”.  Using his minions to meet with the Russian ambassador, lying to Congress, etc.  He is a capable of change melding into other forms as needed.  He might just appear in Star Trek 96 as a changeling, aliens who become any life form.  

Hmmm, No chance, he doesn’t like aliens. He would however be  perfect for the role.  He will say whatever it takes to get off the spot and Tweet other outrageous statements to distract from yesterday’s bad news.  He has violated his oath of office "To Protect And Defend the Constitution of the United States"

T-RUMP was not the answer and for those who don’t care as to how they are really about to be treated and do not see this man for who he really is, you will one day.  Hillary said something about “ DEPLORABLES” that unfortunately caused righteous indignation for the GOP base.  Unfortunately it was dead on.

Speaking at a New York fundraiser on Friday night, generalized that “You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables” referring to Trump’s support among racists, xenophobes, and sexists in America.     And America was warned, we will now have to pay the price for our weakness and believing this man who has no heart really cares about anything other than himself.   Within a year they will be the ones wanting to get rid of the T-RUMP and it will not be nice.


The international crisis merely underscored one closer to home. Trump’s first 24 days in office have become a leak-filled mess, with the fortunes of various aides rising and falling in rapid frequency. 

Stephen Bannon, his chief strategist, and his precocious understudy, Stephen Miller, received much of the derision for Trump’s controversial executive order on immigration. (Last week, a federal appeals court ruled against the ban.) 

At the same time, the president has had issues with the performance, dress code, and even S.N.L.depiction of his press secretary, Sean Spicer. 

Kellyanne Conway, his counselor, has pirouetted from sticky situation to sticky situation—from referring to Spicer’s outright lie about inaugural crowd size as an “alternative fact” to possibly breaking federal law when she gave daughter Ivanka Trump’s clothing brand an advertisement on Fox News—seemingly unscathed in her boss’s eyes, but undoubtedly damaging her public credibility. 

Meanwhile, chief of staff Reince Priebus seemed poised to ascend after the successful rollout of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Last week, my colleague Sarah Ellison referred to the rollout as “Reince’s Revenge.”

The great issue of today is lying — constant lying in public. Lying is the ally of faction and, since President Trump’s rise to power, it is the greater danger. 

Yes, the word is lying — not negotiation, salesmanship, bluster, attention-getting, delusion, deception, braggadocio, exaggeration, bullying, alternative facts, or any other euphemism. Once, President John F. Kennedy could say that our national problems were no longer ideological but technical. Lying on a grand scale has reversed that.

And it’s hard to keep up. Trump has lied about climate change and the character and motives of refugees, about how asylum-seekers have been vetted in the past and how many have been able to enter the United States, about immigrants, and a long list of other matters. As with partisanship, the more lying there is, the worse it is. And Trump’s alternative facts have meant nasty real-world consequences.

As lying comes easily to Trump, it should come first in every report about his administration. Trump doesn’t lie about this and that, and he doesn’t lie sometimes. He is a liar, a person who lies. This news should be reported everywhere.

Politicians have lied before, but this is not an old problem getting worse. Indeed, past presidents have sometimes paid dearly for the mere appearance of a lie. A man of great good character and a lifetime of public service, President George H.W. Bush, said “Read my lips,” which was branded a lie, and he lost an election. Accusations of lying — “Lying Hillary” — tainted Hillary Clinton’s run for president. President Bill Clinton told a lie in public and under oath and the scandal got him impeached. The impeachment gained some weight from the sound legal principle that a liar in one thing is likely to lie about other things. That principle should be applied to Trump.

By the frequency of his lying, Trump has revealed a truth we have avoided confronting: Like partisanship, regular and habitual lying is an existential threat to us, to our institutions, our memories, our understanding of now and of the future, to the great American democratic experiment, and to the planet. It blurs the truth, subverts trust, interferes with thought, and destroys clarity. 

It drives us to distraction.It’s impossible to overstate what is at stake. “I won,” says Trump truly, following it up with lies about landslides, voter fraud and crowd size. Every American should be alarmed. It ought to be the lead in every article about him and his administration, no matter the subject.  

Lying at this level is a threat to the Republic, the world, our allies, our enemies and most important of all those 38% who believe T-RUMP is the answer and supported him. The only problem is they also believe in the Tooth Fairy and that World Wide Wrestling is real. I can believe the tooth fairy part many of them should see a dentist.   And with Linda McMahon, now the Secretary of  Small Business, we can assume we will have wrestling schools all over the US.   She can work with that other billionaire bimbo Betsy DeVos who is about as talented as some of the wrestlers that perform for McMahon.

TRUMP is building the Fourth part of the Democracy, the TRUMP power which will dominate over the other three parts. This is Bannon’s plan and if you don’t see it, then it is already too late.



President Trump’s maiden address to Congress was notable because it was filled with numerous inaccuracies.  In fact, many of the president’s false claims are old favorites that he trots out on a regular, almost daily basis.   And his staff follows in his footsteps. His falsehoods, exaggerations and plain old lies and mis-information could fill the craters on the moon.

He creates so much over the top pure exaggerations and Bullshit, he can’t separate truth from fiction and probably believes half the dung he excretes, it’s a normal function of the mind to believe lies told over and over again. [Dr. Joseph Goebbels].  The post dissected each claim in many cases rating them at four Pinocchio's.  

  • “We have begun to drain the swamp of government corruption by imposing a five-year ban on lobbying by executive branch officials — and a lifetime ban on becoming lobbyists for a foreign government.”
  • “We’ve defended the borders of other nations, while leaving our own borders wide open, for anyone to cross — and for drugs to pour in at a now unprecedented rate.”
  • “Since my election, Ford, Fiat Chrysler, General Motors, Sprint, SoftBank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart and many others have announced that they will invest billions of dollars in the United States and will create tens of thousands of new American jobs.”
  • We’ve saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars by bringing down the price of the fantastic new F-35 jet fighter, and will be saving billions more dollars on contracts all across our government.”
  • We have cleared the way for the construction of the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines — thereby creating tens of thousands of jobs — and I’ve issued a new directive that new American pipelines be made with American steel.”
  • “As we speak, we are removing gang members, drug dealers and criminals that threaten our communities and prey on our citizens. Bad ones are going out as I speak and as I have promised throughout the campaign.”
  • “By finally enforcing our immigration laws we will raise wages, help the unemployed, save billions and billions of dollars and make our communities safer for everyone.”
  • “Millions lifted from welfare to work is not too much to expect.”
  • “Ninety-four million Americans are out of the labor force.”  85% are not in the job market.
  • “America has spent approximately $6 trillion in the Middle East, all this while our infrastructure at home is crumbling. With this $6 trillion we could have rebuilt our country — twice.”
  • “The murder rate in 2015 experienced its largest single-year increase in nearly half a century. In Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot last year alone — and the murder rate so far this year has been even higher. This is not acceptable in our society.”
  • “Jamiel’s 17-year-old son was viciously murdered by an illegal immigrant gang member, who had just been released from prison.  But the vast majority of unauthorized immigrants do not fit Trump’s description of aggravated felons, whose crimes include murder
  • “I can tell you the money is pouring in. Very nice.”   Trump ad-libbed this line after mentioning that he was pressing NATO allies.  Where?




THE PRESS: President Trump did you order the botched Immigrant ban?

JUDGE DREDD: You don’t have to answer that question!

DONALD T-RUMP: I’ll answer the question. You want answers?

THE PRESS: I want the truth! 

DONALD T-RUMP:    You can’t handle the truth!   
We live in a world that needs walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. And I’m going to build bigger, super humongous, super strong, magnificent, more better, more wonderful, more longer, more awesome, spectacular, incredibly great, breathtaking, monstrous, phenomenal, and simply put, astounding wonderful walls built with American steel made from all the cars we will repo from the illegal immigrants on our Southern Border.  And I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom... 
I will have to get the Mexicans to pay for it!

And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives! You don't want the truth, because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall.  Because I am the only one who can negotiate it.  No one else has the smarts I do.
I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to Americans who rise and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I,  “Donald The Protector Provides”  and it will get better when I get a security guy since no one wants to work for me.

THE PRESS: Again, did you order the IMMIGRANT BAN thats so screwed up?

DONALD T-RUMP:  You’re Goddamn right I did!   And the assholes on my staff did a great job on it except for the legal issues, a few loose parts and those schmucks are screwing it up again.   Who the F*ck do those JUDGES think they are?  Who does Paul Ryan think he is, and I’m running out of crazy accusations to stall with.  Get Steve Miller to address the country. That will start a war with Mexico and we won’t need Mexican money to build the F*ckin wall.
