The Three Scariest Things We Learned About Tr**p today…

Every story about this White House is frightening, but here are the three scariest things about this Washington Post story on Il Douché’s mulling a White House purge:

1—In the constant, Tudor-like  political roiling of the White House waters, the bloated body of Steve Bannon has floated back to the top. Setting up a “war room” to do battle with the government that Tr**p leads has his fingerprints all over it. What makes Bannon dangerous  is his lust for chaos and disruption. It’s all about “The Fourth Turning,” a potted history that Bannon reveres.  The book argues that history unfolds in 80 year cycles, each made up of four 20-year “turnings.” We are now in the midst of the fourth, or “destruction” turn of the Post-War era. (The book even uses the term “winter is coming,” so you know every time he turns on “Game of Thrones,” he sees confirmation.) But he’s not content with letting the destruction happen. If the times aren’t going to conform to the book, he’s going to make sure they will. Also back is his spirit animal, Kellyanne Conway.

2—Il Douché is quickly on the road to becoming America’s first Potemkin president. What to do when Tr**p’s not feeling so good about himself? Throwing things at his “enormous” big-screen TV, yelling “Fake News! Fake News!” even when Fox is on?  Why, throw a few rallies. He can take Marine One directly from the White House lawn,  put a cordon around the landing zone, have a friendly crowd on the road, let him grab a few dignitaries’ hands, put him in front of a few thousand of his fans, and it’s all good!

3—They actually use “Godfather” quotes to describe their actions. Two people “close to the [War Room] discussions” said they were “going to the mattresses.”


Is That The Other Shoe I Hear…?

Russian Ambassador Told Moscow That Kushner Wanted A Secret Communications Channel With Moscow.

I’ll let that sink in for a second.

You read that correctly—Russian Ambassador Told Moscow That Kushner Wanted A Secret Communications Channel With Moscow. Now, before we start bringing out the Champaign to christen the good ship Impeachment,  let’s take a breath.

This could just be Russia toying with us, throwing yet another pailful of dezinformatsiya  to the mainstream media like so much chum, roiling the water just to show they can. Putin might have tired of Il Douché, and decided to throw a shot across his bow, stepping on the relatively good news of his foreign trip.  Who knew he’d be so high-maintenance? The constant preening, and having to be in the front row of every picture?  (The most Tr**piest part of that shove? The East/west nods and the tug on his jacket as he took his place, a bullying narcissist’s show of importance that wouldn’t look out of place on a mob boss.) And he just won’t shut up. Being an ally of Il Douché is like hooking up with every nightmare relationship you ever had. You couldn’t blame he if  Putin decided he’s not worth the trouble, and cut him loose.

Or it could just be they’re really that stupid. Right now, that option seems the most likely.

According to the story, Kislyak

was reportedly was taken aback by the suggestion of allowing an American to use Russian communications gear at its embassy or consulate — a proposal that would have carried security risks for Moscow as well as the Trump team.

 And that sounds like something Tr**p would demand. You can imagine him telling Jared to demand a secret office in the Russian Embassy. It’s the kind of Maxwell-Smart-meets- the-Sopranos style of governing coming from the White House.

Whatever the reason, this takes the story right to the heart of the Tr**p Administration. If true, you can’t imagine that Kushner, the most trusted man in the White House, made that demand without approval from the Boss. And it’s illegal, even if they’re going to claim this was some ninja-styled negotiating move. Can’t wait to hear Jeffrey Lord try to defend this steaming pile of crap.

 


War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Trump

Is this a preview of the world-class deal-making we’re being  promised by Il Douché? “We did discuss the wall. We didn’t discuss payment of the wall. That’ll be for a later date…” In other words: I’m going to build worlds’ hugest, most beautiful wall (which you are definitely going to pay for); you have no problem with that, and and we can talk about paying me the full price (which you are still definitely going to do)….whenever.

 

Of course, the gang over at Breitbart.com (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Il Douché Communications) see this nothing less than a pure victory. He’s sure pulled the wool over those libtard eyes, they snicker, as they print “publish”on headlines such as this:

They all better hope that  Cheeto Jesus is using the campaign as a springboard for a media empire…


Lewandowski down!

Il Douché finally let go of Corey Lewandowski, his pugnacious, overmatched campaign manager and the winner of this year’s H.R. Halderman charm school and hair salon trophy. And it was not pretty. Staff meeting at 8, unemployed by 9.

According to Breitbart, a website that trawls the bottom of the Right-wing internet swamp, giving it the best chance of getting the campaign’s least-filtered Cheeto dust, it was even uglier than you imagined. According to their story—no link, I’m not going to send any traffic their way—Lewandowski was let go in a way that makes it easy to believe that the Boardroom scenes in “The Apprentice” were not too far removed from reality:

“At the meeting, attended by both senior campaign staff and members of the family, Trump reviewed different campaign metrics that were all faltering: cooperation with party leaders, fundraising, surrogate operations and most importantly the polls,” all aspects of the campaign where Lewandowski was, for lack of a better term, “project manager.” And when asked what can be done to stop the bleeding, his best idea was to announce the VP candidate.

That got a “you’re fired” from Il Douché, and a statement distributed by the campaign that wouldn’t have been out-of-place in a Variety story: “The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, which has set a historic record in the Republican Primary having received almost 14 million votes, has today announced that Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign. The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.”  I’m especially enamored by the clunkiness of “Donald J. Trump Campaign for President,” followed by a parenthetical boast. I can think of so many others that work just as well: The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, celebrating one year of being proudly fact-free; The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, on a course for a record-breaking loss in the general election… add your suggestions in the comments section.

The reaction from Breitbart’s anonymous source (although given the dismissive nature of the comments, it could be “John Miller”)  follows suit, sounding less like a campaign operative than a network marketing executive: “The VP pick was the one piece of suspense that would make people tune into the convention—Corey wanted to give that away now? There was no way.”

Or to put it another way: Corey Lewandowski is the second instance of a man being killed over lousy ratings.
