Tag Teams: Pelosi and Schumer vs. Trump and the Oval Office

January 14, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, who created and still posts over at the brilliant blog site FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll at thrower right column of this page).              

COUNTDOWN: There now remain just 730 unbearable days left in this horribly corrupted and stumbling Trump presidency!

Happy mid-January Monday, everybody! We recently had to endure a brief but extremely forgettable, mediocre, and boring presidential address from the Oval Office. Trump tried once more to tell us how essential it is for us to construct an impenetrable border wall at our southern border, telling lies about how criminals, drug traffickers, rapists, and murderers will pour across it unless we build his unneeded wall. This is all paranoid delusion, of course, and Trump looked horrible reading this from a teleprompter.

Immediately following this, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer gave a logical Democratic response. However, they were crammed together side by side, and it made their appearance seem a bit awkward.  

In today’s podcast, our podcaster extraordinaire Burr Deming examines all of this and recalls other similar poor-looking rebuttals in the past.

Burr says, “The words communicated what fair minded representatives wanted to say, what fair minded voters needed to hear.

But Pelosi and Schumer looked like they had been pushed together into an invisible locker. It was awful.

Then I saw the polls.”

THE BEGINNING OF THE END!

January 10, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P.  

COUNTDOWN: Every day and in every way, we are slowly getting closer -there are now just 734 days left in this putrid Trump presidency!


With the installation of Nancy Pelosi again as Speaker of the House last week, we have entered a new, hopefully much better, era in American politics. Her swearing-in was a beautiful sight to behold: surrounded as she was by her grandchildren and the children and grandchildren of many other House members, I got a look at what should certainly be a newer, much more inclusive time for our democracy. New Democratic congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI ) wasted no time in getting down to brass tacks, by exclaiming about Trump, “We’re going to impeach that motherf**ker!”

This outburst seemed to herald the beginning of the end, or, at the very least, the end of the beginning, for the most hateful and inept of all American presidencies ever – that of the hapless and useless Donald Trump. This overly-vain and horribly insecure fool has proven many times over that he is not only a spoiled man-child who is  chronically unhappy, but is in waaaayyyy over his head and is thoroughly unfit for the job he has been holding. The markets, which hate uncertainty, have been fluctuating wildly due to the unneeded protectionist policies Trump has initiated. His tariffs have already had a negative impact on our economy and the prevailing outlook expressed by most economists is one of much slower growth this year. Some even feel there may be a recessi0n lurking on the horizon. This volatility, coupled with Trump’s constant lying, have led to a great deal of uncertainty – and that is not good.

Trump held a meeting with congressional Democrats in which the first 15 minutes was composed of his cursing at them. As a self-proclaimed “deal -maker” that is hardly the way to begin a negotiation! It demonstrates that he is nothing more than a crude, domineering narcissist bully who has zero regard for anyone but himself. This charlatan will do anything to grab attention for himself, and that is despicable!

Then he held an hour-long press briefing on the White House lawn, in which he said little of importance  but reiterated his claim that we need some type of impenetrable barrier to keep terrotosts from entering our country via our southern border. Despite valiant efforts by reporters to get him to identify who these terrorists are or where they are coming from, he very arrogantly  brushed aside their questions and asserted that he has the ability to expand his executive power to provide security for the country. He claimed, very incorrectly, that he could have the military construct a barrier by declaring a “state of emergency” and could thereby bypass Congress and pay for it using funds previously approved for other purposes. This, of course, greatly exceeds his powers and lawsuits would very quickly prove it to be completely unconstitutional. Such paranoia! Such ignorance! Along with this veiled threat, he claimed that we are reaping “billions” in new revenue from China due to his tariffs, and that steel companies and automobile manufacturers are once more thriving due to his anti-NAFTA efforts. In such a barrage of gobbledygook nonsense, the press and other truth-seekers have little to grab onto factually. It would have been far better if Trump had never even bothered to face the media.  

On Tuesday night, Trump gave an easily forgettable short speech from the Oval Office about the “crisis” we face at our southern border regarding “illegals” who constantly stream over it, bringing in drugs and causing outbreaks of crime. This goof just doesn’t understand that hordes of illegal immigrants are NOT invading us and that the number of arrests at our border was a mere SIX last year – nowhere near the “thousands” he has been claiming! This man is an unstable paranoid who must be removed grom office as soon as possible!  

We have never encountered such a blatant megalomaniac as Donald Trump, and it is my sincere hope we NEVER AGAIN will elect such a delusional pathological liar. Trump makes Dick Nixon, George W. Bush, and DICK Cheney look like angelic choirboys  in comparison. This arrogant pig dismissed the notion of being impeached by saying “you can’t impeach somebody when they’re doing a good job.” That is utterly insane. Depriving hundreds of thousands of federal employees from getting paid due to his preposterous shutdown of government is NOT “doing a good job!” Nor is his ludicrous claim that the majority of those who have been thrown out of work by this acti0n strongly support what he has been trying to do with this shutdown! Wednesday, this arrogant pig abruptly walked out of a meeting with congressional leaders aimed at reaching a solution to this unjustified shutdown. Who the hell does Trump think he is, amyway?

Let us hope we are, in fact, seeing the beginning of the end of his wretched, delusional, dishonest, self-serving presidency.

In the immortal words of the great Lord Jesus Christ: “BEGONE, SATAN!”

My President is Innocent, if you will

January 7, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, who created and still posts over at the brilliant blog site FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll at thrower right column of this page).              

COUNTDOWN: There are now just 737 days left in this bumbling and incapable Trump presidency!

Greetings to all! In today’s example, our master podcaster Burr Deming contrasts differences between Donald Trump and another Republican elitist, Mitt Romney, on how both used immigrant labor. 

Burr tells us, “Another day, another scandal. This time the anti-immigrant President turns out to be hiring undocumented immigrants and having their paperwork forged.

He had no idea. Again.

It was all done behind his back. Again.

When he wasn’t looking. Again.”

A HOPEFUL POST OF GOOD WILL FOR THE NEW YEAR!

January 3, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P.  

COUNTDOWN: I am pleased to report that Trump’s abominable presidency will be over, at long last, in another 741 days!  

Happy first post of the new year, everybody! Today, I would like to begin on an encouraging note, by featuring the noble efforts of a TV commentator to positively battle ignorance through our world by using education as his primary tool.  For 9 years, MSNBC TV’s Lawrence O’Donnell has been actively spearheading the raising of funds for what he calls the K.I.N.D. Fund – Kids In Need of Desks. He has focused his efforts on the poor African nation of Malawi, and has raised over $19 MILLION for this worthy cause! That may sound like a lot of money, but it is only a fraction of what is really needed. Consider this: only 3 in 5 Malawi students are lucky enough to have a desk to use; a portion of this money is used to employ local workers to manu-facture the desks in that dirt-poor nation; plus – even more import-antly – females must pay to attend school there, as government-funded, universal public education simply does not exist! Regrettably, it is the custom for most girls to stay at home or be forced into marriage and childbearing at ages even as young as 16! Far fewer girls attend school in Malawi than do boys, and here is a unique opportunity for us to help even the score. Being able to attend school helps free these girls to be able to think and act on their own, and enables them to contribute to society in their own individual way.  Contributions help pay for these kids to be able to go to attend school and allows them to eventually make a positive impact on their society. These children are all deserving of this, as are all children everywhere. We, as far more economiclly advanced and powerful than those living in Malawi, have a moral duty to help out as best we can, and this is an ideal way.

So won’t you join us on this noble crusade? Donate whatever you feel you can afford to the K.I.N.D. Fund TODAY  by calling 1-800-UNICEF. Doing this will  bring a warm smile to the face of one or more of these young, deserving  children! Help Lawrence O’Donnell start out 2019 on a beautiful note with your own personal contribution – you will definitely be glad you did!   Here is a fabulous chance to make a lasting, positive impact on these innocent children’s lives. In the process, you will also do something important to reduce the tarnish the Trump regime has soiled our country with – thank you so very much!!! 🙂

My President, Herod, and the Christ Child

December 31, 2018  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of the brilliant blog site Fair and Unbalanced.com, and who still posts there – see my  Blogroll at the lower right hand side of this page).

COUNTDOWN: By some miracle, we have managed to  survive one whole year of Trump! That means there are now only 744 more days left in his insane, criminal misadministration…        

Happy last day and post of 2018, everybody! We have seen in recent weeks the tragic and unnecessary deaths of two Guatemalan children, who were being led here by their parents to escape vi0lence and certain death in their own country. In today’s thoiught-provoking podcast, our podcaster magnifique Burr Deming reminds us of similarities between these young innocents and Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus, who, in their time, were also fleeing potential violence which would have been directed against the infant. Burr wonders aloud whether that holy family was mistreated by the ancient Egyptians where they fled to, just as today’s Trump admini9stration is doing to refugee children coming to our country now. We all know the answer: the holy family was allowed to flee Herod by being admitted to Egypt, and spent time there unmolested until the wicked, conniving Herod had died. Today’s refugee children are also at the mercy of a wicked, uncaring leader.

Burr asks, The message seems so clear.

Why are so many fervent believers in the Christmas message unable to apply it to today’s world and the leadership of our own nation?”

YEAR-END MUSINGS FOR 2018!

December 27, 2018  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P.

COUNTDOWN: As yet another year of Donald Trump is fast approaching, let us console ourselves with the thought that now only 748 more days remain in this criminal president’s misadministration…

Hello, everyone. I hope those of you who celebrate it had a nice Christmas! So incredibly much has happened over the past year that it is hard to know where to begin. The bungling and criminal President Trump made it a point to be at the center of everyone’s attention as often as he possibly could – which was MUCH too frequently for most of our tastes! His third shutdown of the federal government occurred just before the holidays, and he received well-deserved and widespread criticism from even members of his own party for it. 800,000 federal workers will be affected by his unnecessary action – which shows once more how little regard he has for others – depriving many of them of a paycheck just before Christmas! 🙁 But what else can we expect from such a cold-hearted, real-life GRINCH?!?

There is an old saying which states, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”  In the case of president Donald Trump and his adult children, that is clearly true. His greedy little bimbo daughter, Ivanka, was recently revealed to have greatly over-charged persons who came to Washington and stayed at the Trump International Hotel in January of 2017 to attend inaugiration events.  Previously, of course, she had chosen to avail herself of cheaper Chinese labor rates by manufacturing her clothing line in China and then reselling it here at a huge profit. In doing so, she was deliberately taking advantage of the very long working hours and hideously low pay which are rife in Chinese mills. Some may casually dismiss this as being just “good business,” but this blogger finds it to be offensive, piggish, and unnecessary! Then, too, let us not forget her husband, the opportunistic, spoiled, and wimpy Jared Kushner, who tried in vain to set up a secret line to Moscow to aid in procuring lucrative business deals there for himself and his father-in-law right after Trump had been elected.  It seems like it’s ANYTHING to make as many bucks as possible for these money-hungry asses!  

Corruption of a record amount has descended upon our capitol ever since Trump assumed office. His first National Security Advisor, Mike Flynn, had to resign in disgrace for having lied to the FBI about his Russian ties only weeks after assuming his position!  And now it has come out that Trump had his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, arrange to have two women Trump had previously had sexual affairs with paid off to keep their silence – just a short time before he won in the election of 2016! Cohen spilled the beans on his former boss, and the full implications of Trump’s attempts to cover this up will be forthcoming for the next 6 months or more, if not longer.

Not only that, but the supposed-business expert Trump  (the estremely maladjusted, spoiled little brat man-child whom NOBODY can seem to get along with for very long) has gone through an unbelievable 12 different Cabinet heads in less than 2 full years in office! This includes not just one, but THREE different Chiefs of Staff and one corrupt Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, who was also forced to resign – old Trump sure knows how to pick ’em, doesn’t he?  The latest person is Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, and who, pray tell, will be next? Let us hope it will be the presodent, Trump, himself!!!!

Trump’s repeated use of the lie as a political weapon finally backfired on him this fall.  Fed-up with an unending number of scandals and cover-up attempts, voters massively rejected Trump’s Republican Party and, by a record majority of  8 MILLION votes, solidly elected a Democratic House in  November’s midterms. Despite this, the GOP actually picked up 2 more seats in the Senate – but, barring some very unforseen circumstance – the Republicans should almost certainly lose control of the Senate AND the presidency as well in the 2020 elections! 

Other memorable events this past year were a first-time meeting between a sitting U.S. president and Kim-Jong un, the dictator of North Korea, which happened in Singapore; the adoption of a cruel and unecessarily harsh anti-immigration policy by Trump and his advisor Steven Miller (which, directly or indirect-ly, led to the tragic and fully avoidable death of an innocent young 7 year old girl at our southern border); massive anti-Trump demon-strations throughout Europe; the electio0n of a Democratic Senator from deeply-red Alabama for the first time in 25 years; plus numerous other mass shootings in this country – and especially, the awful and horrid one at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, which in turn sparked another round of anti-gun demonstrations – this time, among young students! While it was indeed refreshing to see the rise of political awareness and activism in  these young students, the tragedy which caused this was horribly gruesome, and, once again, thoroughly avoidable! Let us hope that their idealism and activism will prove to have gigantic and permanent dividends for our entire society as time goes on.

However, Trump’s shockingly rash decisi0n last week to immediately remove all U.S. troops from Syria smacked of subservience toward both Russia and Turkey, and will certainly lead to a disaster for Turkish Kurds, whom Erdogan wishes to annihilate. Russian and Turkish forces will swoop in to fill the void, and this proves not only that Trump IS Putin’s bitch, but that he is indefensibly inept at grasping the complexities of or running our foreign policy. SHAME ON YOU, MR. TRUMP – you WEAKLING!  

EVERYTHING about Trump is abnormal, from his goofy signature (which more closely resembles choppy waves of static put to paper rather than a human’s writing), to his overly-long phallic symbol neckties, to his inability to concentrate and properly understand facts when receiving briefings – this guy is LOCO! His self-professed ability to make “deals” is a myth – all he understands is using brute force and domination, as was proven in the Trump shutdown of government we are again experiencing. Above all else, his intolerance and lack of human empathy have so far caused tthe deaths of two innocent refugee children, and that is unforgivable. This idiot is no negotiator – he is far too stupid for governance and has got to GO!

One hopeful sign, though, is that, by some miracle, the Trump misadministration did outlaw, beginning next March, the use of Bump stocks on guns, and another was the passage of a bipartisan Criminal Justice Reform bill, which Trump said he will sign. As of this writing, at least, that just shows that nobody is always all wrong or always all good, and that is a refreshing sight, indeed! 

So, all in all, it was a mixed year, with more gluttonous excesses from the Trump family and more unneeded gun violence, but with the election of a much more progressive Democratic House; a huge increase in the number of women who were elected; and a rising new activism among younger voters. I am now cautiously optimistic for 2020, but good won’t happen unless we are willing to work extra hard – just as we did this year – to make it come about!

December 24, 2018  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of the brilliant blog site Fair and Unbalanced.com, and who still posts there – see my  Blogroll at the lower right hand side of this page).

COUNTDOWN: Santa’s gift to us is that only 751 more days are left in this horrid Trump presidency…

Merry Christmas to all of you who are Christians! As we prepare to celebrate, our podcaster mafnifique Burr Deming draws to our ttention disturbing parallels between an evil autocratic Chilean leader who seized absolute power there back in 1976  named Pinochet and our own president, who loves autocrats and wishes he, too, could rule with such authority.  


Burr says,
A courtroom scolding of a decorated United States General and President Trump’s promise about the extradition of a Muslim cleric to Turkey echoes a murder in Washington four decades ago.”

SANTA’S “DONALD OF THE YEAR” FOR 2018!

Dec. 20, 2018  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P.  

COUNTDOWN:  As we are now only 5 short days removed from this most blessed of all seasons, it is time to acknowledge  how we are blessed in another important way – only 755 more days remain until we will finally be rid of this most ungodly presidential misadministration!  

Santa had it relatively much easier this year: he was able to determine exactly who would be given his “Donald of the Year Award” for this year of 2018 much earlier than normal, and with very little hesitation or indecision.  Long time readers of this blog are familiar with this holiday award, which Santa gives each December to the one organization, group, or person whose statements or actions were so boneheaded, preposterous, and insane that  they were more than deserving of ridicule.  

Past recipients have included:
2017 – Presi-dunce Donald Chump
2016 – President-elect Donald Chump
2015 –  presidential candidate Donald Chump
2014 – TIED – self-proclaimed killer of Osama bin Laden Robert James O’Neill and President Barack Obama
2013 – the obstructionist 113th Congress
2012 –  Ex-Hostess Brands CEO Gregory J. Rayburn and his executive board
2011 – the entire Republican congressional caucus
2010 – the obnoxious Phillips “Colon Lady”
2009 – Richard Heinke, the idiot who faked sending his little boy up in a hot-air balloon just for publicity
2008 – disgraced former Democratic IL Governor Rod Blagojevich  

As mentioned, this year it was all clear as a bell to Santa. He didn’t even have to designate who came close to receiving the award, because no one came within a light-year of the winner. But – to keep up with tradition, Santa DID finally note some distant also-rans:  

FOURTH PLACE went to retiring Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, for his efforts to block passage of a bipartisan Senate bill to prohibit further funding of military aid to Saudi Arabia, who has been involved in a bullying war wirh Yemen that has led to the starvation of thousands of young innocent Yemeni children. Santa has decided to raid the cupboards and refrigerator in Ryan’s home of all foodstuffs over Christmas to make him think long and hard of how much needless suffering his disgusting actions have caused.

THIRD PLACE went to the buffoonish rap singer Kanye West, who took it upon himself to go to the White House in October and babble mostly rambling, nonsensical, and incoherent heaps of praise upon the president. Santa has decided to give Mr. West a free trip to the ophthalmologist  right after Christmas to make certain that Mr. West’s vision will return to normal.

SECOND PLACE (a TIE) went equally to White House counselor Kellyanne Con-job and to press secretary Sarah Huckster Slanders, in recognition of how both equally parrot Trump’s every lie. Santa will give to  each a mouthwash composed of habanero sauce, so that both will think about and remember the lies they told every day in support of this bumbling idiot president.  


RUNNER-UP this year goes to self-appoinyed presidential liar (I mean, lawyer) Rudy Giu-LIE-ani, for his constant and pathetic need to be in the spotlight as often as he can; for his shameful sucking-up to Trump; plus for the spin he continually spews out in support of the president. What a creep!  

Now, finally, at long last,  

THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER FOR SANTA’S 2018 DONALD OF THE YEAR AWARD GOES TO:

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Everybody’s absolute least -favorite Grinch, the president,  Donald Trump! That’s right – for the FOURTH straight  year in a row, due to his crazy ranting and raving about a mythical invasion beneath our border to the way he sided with a murderous Saudi dictator-in-waiting against his own Intelligence sources and the CIA, to his utterly insane blaming of Californians for their supposed responsibility for the record deadly fires they went through because they hadn’t raked thefloors of their forests enough – Santa had little trouble arriving at this year’s decision! In fact, Grinch Trump’s behavior was so over the top most of the year, that Santa is considering naming the president his Donald of the DECADE! Santa’s gift to this scoundrel will be a new seat for the president’s golf cart – lined with prickly barbed stickers! This idiotic Trump simply refuses to learn, so maybe a sore bottom will get him to finally THINK before he speaks or acts!

UP NEXT THURSDAY: “YEAR-END MUSINGS FOR 2018” – happy holidays!

A Small Dehydrated Child and a Crash in 1948

Dec. 17, 20188  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P.  (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, who created and stilll posts over at the brilliant blog site FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my blogroll at the lower right).

COUNTDOWN: We still have 758 days to go before we will be able to escape  forever from the vast corruption of this criminally inept  misadministration…

Happy start of a new week, everybody! In the past few days, we saw firsthand proof of the cruelty and indifference of this abominable Trump presidency. Their hatred of immigrants and their reckless policy on immigration caused the death by dehydration of an innocent young 7 year old girl. Yes, poor little Jakelin Caal Maquin’s life was abruptly brought to an end by the policies of Donald Trump, and it is something all of us should be ashamed of!

In today’s example, our master podcaster Burr Deming reminds us of how biased we still are against those of darker skin who try to immigrate here from below our southern border. He recalls the tale of “deportees” being expelled from our country from 1948 to illustrate his point, and shows how little we have changed since then.

Burr states, “An echo comes to us as a small child traveling in hope from Guatemala to America is lost to dehydration and neglect.

In 1948, a plane carrying migrant workers crashed in Los Gatos Canyon. Those deaths were nearly ignored by the press and public of the day.”

TRUMP: GIVE THE ENTIRE WORLD A CHRISTMAS PRESENT!

Dec. 13, 2018  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P.  

COUNTDOWN:  As we are now only 12 short days away from this most blessed of all Christian holidays, it is time to think of  how blessed we are in another significant way: only 762 days are left until we will finally be be freed from this most ungodly presidential misadministration!  

A little more than a week and a half remain for shoppers to buy this year’s Christmas gifts. One valuable gift we are beginning to receive early are the results of the Mueller probe, and they are proving to be quite fruitful in their yield. President Trump has been implicated directly as the mastermind of cover-up attempts to silence both women involved in scandalous sexual liaisons with him: Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal. Thanks to testimony given by his former lawyer Michael Cohen, it is now undeniable that Trump was involved in this criminal act – which idefinitely a felonious and impeachable offense!


Trump, the balding king-of-all-liars, was trying to silence these two women so his involvement with them wouldn’t threaten his campaign to be elected president. Very regrettably, he was successful – but now, at last, the sordid truth is starting to emerge.

While Cohen is certainly a liar, his testimony and that given earlier by Trump’s first National Security Advisor Mike Flynn (who has met with prosecutors an amazing 19 times and has provided a wealth of documentation to them), has been gone over carefully by both Special Counsel Robert Mueller as well as prosecutors from the Southern District of New York, and was corroborated  by many reliable sources. The non-believers have been, of course, stodgy di-nosaur Republicans like Utah’sOrrin Hatch, Iowa’s Chuck Grassley, and Ken-tucky’s Mitch McConnell, EACH of whom should be replaced as soon as possible! Hatch will be retiring in a few weeks, thank God, but the other two are stubborn partisans who must be replaced! The smarmy former 2016 Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was caught giving false testimony numerous times, changing it over and over again to suit various situations. This continual, unrepent-ant liar seems unable to discern the actual truth! Regardless, the latter two of these Trumpsters will be soon sentenced to jail terms – and for this blogger, the sooner, and longer,  the better!

Even Trump has begun to see the light, and is recognizing that impeachment may very well be his fate. His criminality has now become evident to nearly everyone – so much so, in fact, that a group of 44 former Senators, both Republican and Democratic, signed on to a letter they sent to the Washington Post in which they urged current and future members in that body to protect our democracy “by ensuring that partisanship 0r self-interest not replace national interest.” In other words, they recognize the very real danger Trump’s continued presidency holds for our legal framework and its institutions, and are urging current Republican senators to not stand in the way of Trump’s impeachment and removal from office.

I myself urge Trump to give the entire world a Christmas present, and resign from the presidency before December 25!
