CLIMATE POLITICS

The possibility of a wall of water barrelling through my town and my family’s home, scares the crap out of me. You can’t stop water. But it is currently a potential reality for people in the path of a failing dam system in California.

Meteorologists point out that extreme weather events, such as the wet winter weather on the West coast this year, are becoming more frequent, dangerous, and widespread due to climate change. We all need to wake up, and NOW.

“What’s happened at Oroville Dam, it’s an example for us and a warning to us of what we need to be thinking about…We can try to mitigate how much climate change we see, but we also need to respond to what we believe will occur.”

The efforts by DT and his appointees, even in these first few weeks, clearly show they will not help us prepare for climate change impacts, or give a crap about stopping the things causing climate change in the first place.

DAY 26

Well, the world has not imploded yet. Many in the resistance woke up today feeling a sense of hope–a small sense but it was felt nonetheless. When Michael Flynn went down and attention was back where it belonged on Russia, election interference, treason, and the crackerjack administration–there was a sense of relief. Finally, people would begin to see common sense. After the NYT broke a story last night that offered more detail and insight into Russian relations by DT admin during and after the election, people were beginning to focus (1).

…Well, DT spent most of his time post Flynn-gate redirecting lemmings to “leaks” from the WH. Guess what news media played along? Yup, you guessed it FOX (and Brietbart, but I refuse to even consider that–to borrow from DT–a fake news site). Honestly, how is FOX still in existence. If you ever want to lose all hope in humanity spend a few minutes reading the Facebook comments on any FOX post. If you don’t walk away with an intense feeling of dread and despair, then you must be a FOX fanatic.

How dumb does DT think the American public is? “Un-American” leaks???—Yeesh! Don’t get distracted, peeps. The real story is Russian relations, election interference, LIES and TREASON.

The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?

Uhhhh, if North Korea has a Mar-a-Lago membership, that should not be a problem–it might be worth the 200K or if that is too much $, they could just troll Facebook:

 (2) or this guy who snapped a photo with his new BFF, Rick, aka “Rick the Man”. Click HERE to see his FB photo (3).

Instead of focusing on the problem at hand, DT doubled down on his insults of our Intelligence Agency. I am sure that was a smart move (insert awkward silence). I hope they rip him a new one.

Meanwhile back at the WH….DT publicly supports a “one state” Israel. Although, he finally recognizes the jewish people and genocide of WWII (remember back on Feb. 2, 2017 the WH purposefully omitted the mention of Jew/Jewish from the Holocaust Remembrance day [4]–SHAME SHAME SHAME), I am pretty sure he has no grasp of the fine balance in the Middle East but maybe he consulted Middle East experts before going public with this new claim…..Yeah, I’m pretty sure that did not happen.

I keep wondering is this the day? Is this the day that our insane leader started WWIII.

So where does that leave us? Still well emerged in this $*** show-that’s where.

MENTALLY ILL WITH GUNS- WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

The NRA will be so proud (sad face). You would think the issue of preventing people with mental illness from gun ownership would be bipartisan and let’s face it–basic common sense issue. Well, under the DT admin, that is not the case. The repeal of the legislation preventing mentally ill from gun ownership passed the House a week or so ago and today it passed in the Senate. There is always the chance DT will veto.  —-uhmmm, No.

The original bill introduced during the Obama administration targeted people who had applied for Social Security disability benefits because they could not handle their own finances. So—-let me get this straight. You can’t balance your checkbook or pay your own bills–but by all means you have the right to bear arms. I am pretty sure this is not what our founding fathers had in mind.

Do I think massive lobbying by the NRA and the fact that DT and his cronies were heavily backed by the NRA played a part? Hmmm, is that even a question? #THISISNOTNORMAL #RESIST

MORNING AFTER FLYNN FALLOUT

NYT reported last night that, “Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials.”

The fact that Russia interfered with the election process has been known since last year (before November’s election), the information was verified and released in January. What is not known is the level of involvement of DT and his cronies. Did they know during the election Russia was interfering? If so, did they care? DT supporters don’t seem to care that Russia hacked our politicians’ emails and that they planted stories/propaganda to help sway the outcomes of our election. Why not?

I, for one, am very uncomfortable with DT’s chumminess with Putin and have lots of suspicions about his and his administrations relationship with Russia–looking at you Rex. Tillerson headed up Exonn Mobile’s Russian operations—No conflict of interest there (insert heavy dose of sarcasm).  Let’s not lose sight though–it seems like many in DT’s cabinet are tied to Russia and may be in Putin’s pocket.

This election, this Presidency—and how we react will set precedence for the future. Tolerating lies, dishonestly, election tapering from a foreign country—accepting chaos and everything that is this $*** show means we accept it. Now is the time–#RESIST #THISISNOTNORMAL

DAY 25

We are 25 days in and as declared on SNL this week, “I want one day without a CNN alert that scares the hell out of me!”

Michael Flynn “resigned” last night. I, of course, have no insight into discussions that likely occurred inside the WH administration but I imagine this was a planned and welcomed announcement.

Don’t know who Mike Flynn is? Well he was DT’s National Security Advisor. Yup, the same guy who coined “Lock Her Up” at the RNC convention last summer (the irony is thick here). He was also responsible for Pizzagate, a lovely little twitter/defamation of character/business slander/public safety issue, type of tweet.

Here’s Flynn’s tweet from Nov 2016, this is after FBI Director Comey’s interference and resurgence of HC email controversy (gosh, remember when people had their panties in a bunch about uninteresting emails) :

This links to an blog post (that he used as a credible news source) from True Pundit with a catchy headline about “..New Hillary Emails: Money Laundering, Sex Crimes with Children, Child Exploitation, Pay to Play, Perjury”. Yup, it did not matter that it was not real or that it was just plain ridiculous—and don’t even get me started on the HC email scandal (DT’s android phone, unsecured servers and twitter account is topic for another day). The Pizzagate issue was further complicated by the fact that a gunman did go into a pizza parlor, Comet Ping Pong Pizza in Washington, and opened fire claiming his actions were a result of this conspiracy theory. Flynn’s son, his Chief of Staff, eventually lost his job–wait for it, because he tweeted after the event that there may be truth in the conspiracy theory. “Really, you can’t make this $*** up” is the common theme of this entire election and presidency.

Anyway, now you get a sense of the man, a man in charge of National Security who gives credence to fake news and seems to have no qualms using social media to advance ridiculous conspiracy theories. It should be no surprise to you that this is the same crony who contacted the Russian Ambassador after Obama imposed sanctions on Russia once it was determined Russia did have involvement in the US elections and therefore the outcome. When questioned Flynn claims he does not remember talking about the sanctions, but he can not deny the claim. How dumb does he think we are? Honestly, he reaches out to Russia and Putin’s threat to take actions as a result of the new sanctions disappear because Putin claims he was refraining from retaliation because he wanted to wait for DT to be in office. Of course, he wanted to wait for his puppet to be in office. This resulted in a public love-fest where DT then announces via tweet, of course, “Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!” I must note that this public display of affection for Putin was followed a day later by a “gracious” New Year’s Day Tweet where DT calls the majority of Americans enemies. Praising Putin one day, calling the majority of the US enemies the next…well, you can’t make this **** up.

Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!

 

At this point, you may need a laugh. Click HERE to hear Mark Hamill (yes, the actor from Star Wars) read this New Year’s Jeer in The Joker’s voice. It is not to be missed.

So, where does that leave us? Yes, with Mike Flynn who would have you believe that Pence and DT—and the rest of the administration had no idea that his discussion with the Russian ambassador days after the US imposes sanctions on Russia for election tampering, Putin’s public refrain from retaliation, DT’s Praise of Putin, and the $*** show we have now are all unrelated…..PLEASE! or in DT fashion, SAD!
