“THE WOLF IS AT THE DOOR!”


.

..

Donald Trump’s former presidential campaign manager, Paul Manafort, got a surprise visit at his Northern Virginia home yesterday morning when 12 FBI agents undertook a pre-dawn raid on his home and made off with various documents thought to contain evidence of criminal activity. The raid was instigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and was authorized by a judge who “signed off” on the warrant shown to him by Mueller’s crew which specified in great detail the precise documents they were after, documents evidencing criminal activity and as such in danger of being destroyed by Manafort unless obtained immediately and by complete surprise. A mere subpoena would have given Manafort time to destroy and all such documents.
.
Trump’s own lawyer, John Dowd, a well-established D.C. lawyer, sent a vituperative email to the New York Times saying that the raid was an egregious miscarriage of justice. For one thiing, Mr. Dowd is NOT Paul Manafort’s client. He is Donald Trump’s lawyer. For another thing, anything said along these lines, by inference, implicates the President because it raises the spectre that there likely was something in those papers that related to the president or that directly or indirectly implicates Mr. Trump in this whole tawdry Russian-Trump campaign collusion matter.
.
Silence is golden. The first rule of law is say no more than you have to. Mr. Dowd has said too much and it does not bode well for his client, Donald Trump.
.
The “extreme nature” of this raid by Mueller, with 12 FBI agents in a pre-dawn action is a signal that Mueller is taking no chances in any evidentiary material disappearing or any targets from falling through the cracks. It also shows the conviction Mueller has in himself and his mission because such a decision to conduct a large pre-dawn raid carries with it enormous risks if it turns out they misjudged the culpability of their target.
.
Mueller is apparently running a very tight ship at an exceedingly high efficiency and is sending a powerful message to the principals that the only game available to them is to fully cooperate or face the prospect of a very long prison sentence. Joining Manafort, in due course, will be Michael Flynn. Back In February/March he indicated he was willing to appear before a Senate Committee but only if he was given immunity. Now, his legal team better jettison that idea and face reality. Flynn’s only true option is to cooperate fully without immunity or face the same prospects staring back at Manafort, a long prison sentence.
.
The ice has been broken and Mueller will now proceed with all deliberate speed. He’s not going anywhere, he will not be fired and he’s definitely following the money trail and all such trails, ultimately, lead back to the oval office. The degree of difficulty in having a judge sign off on a search warrant of this magnitude is far higher than that to obtain tax returns. It is almost axiomatic that Mueller has, by now, already obtained at least some of Trump’s tax records and there’s no reason why he could not go back decades.
.
The Wolf Is Now At The Door, Mr. Trump!

“THE RAIN, THE DRUMPF & OTHER THINGS”

.

.

Saw him shitting in the rain
Turd drops falling on to the earth
He didn’t seem too sane
Just sat there and covered it w/dirt
.
And I knew – I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew
He could be so crappy, crappy, crappy – he could be so very crappy
Spiders in his hair
Spiders everywhere
.
I love his Trump Tower girl
Don’t know really why, maybe ’cause she poked my eye
I love this Trump Tower girl
She seemed so sweet and kind, as she rearranged my mind
.
I knew I had to say hello, hello, hello
She smiled UP at me
As she stole all my land
Stripped it with such insolent tone
.
And I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew
She had made me zappy, zappy, zappy – she had made me very zappy
Lobsters in her hair
Lobsters everywhere
.
I love their bigley little world —
Don’t know why, as Don caresses her thigh —
I love this squiggley pair —
Like cheap wine sparking my mind —
.
Suddenly, the sun broke through – (see the sun)
Looked ’round, but they’re gone
All they had left
Was one bag of turds on my lawn
.
But I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew
The had made me happy, happy, happy – they had made me very happy
Like Matt Lauer on the air
Matt Lauer everywhere
.
I love Miss Trump Tower girl
Was she reality or just cow girl cream to me?
I hug miss Trump Tower girl
She just shrugs and says that’ll be 100 per day
.
I love Miss Chump Tower girl
Was she banality or just chicken shit to me?
I love the Faulty Tower girl
Her jugs showed me the way to cream my day away
.
I love Trump Tower girl
Was she reality or Steve McQueen in drag to me?
.

“MY COUNTRY TWEETS OF THEE”

.

My country tweets of thee,
Land of depravity,
Oh such calamity.
Land where his father lied!
Land where Don learned to hide!
From all his tall buildings,
May he earn shillings!
.
His native country, thee,
Land of his conspiracy,
This game he loves.
Don loves his crooks and shills,
His hoods and cash tills;
His coffers with stash fills
Whose to judge.
.
Let Trump shoot the breeze,
And see what falls from trees
Sweet conman’s song.
Lest mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe forsake;
Let cops enforce or threaten to break,
Can’t none stand long.
.
Don, with your majority,
Hatched from a minority,
No hope can spring
Long may this Bigley be bright
Well past America’s twilight;
Infecting us all with his blight,
God, such fucking!.

OBAMACARE IS UP! – TRUMPCARE IS DOWN!!

For AUDIO Version, Click Down BELOW —> (4-min. in length) —-> Go Ahead, You Know You Want To!!!

“OBAMACARE IS UP!—TRUMPCARE IS DOWN!!”

.

.

.

As Mark Twain once remarked, “the news of my demise is a bit premature”.
.
So goes the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as OBAMACARE.
.
This is the 3rd time Mitch McConnell & the U.S. Senate has tried to disembowel OBAMACARE and AFTER 3 strikes — you’re OUT!!!
.
They need to send these A-holes back to the minor leagues. They control the White House, the Senate & the House of Representatives and they’re 0 for 3 on health care and virtually every piece of legislation that they had planned on enacting.
.
Oh, how “Tweet” It Is!!!!!!
.
Trump upporters, you’re nothing but a bunch of limp-biscuits, staring at your navels. You’d forget to remember the number “911” to call “911”if you really had to call “911”. You’re prospects at seeing anything of your knockwurst agenda EVER being enacted are slim to none, and slim just left town.
.
Even Fox News White House reporter, John Roberts, walked out of a Sarah Huckabee Sanders Presser this morning because, even FOX NEWS, cannot abide what utter “tripe” is being shoveled out from the White House under Donald J. Trump/DRUMPF.
.
I think Trump needs to get a magic lamp from the “Arabian Nights” and keep it handy nearby him in order to enable him to get at least 3 wishes. You start with 3 wishes but each time you rub it you lose one wish.
.
If you’re still a Trump supporter it’s time to do a “gut check” or a long, hard look into the mirror! Trump has only been in office for approx. 178 days and the “carnage” he has inflicted on the body-politic is incalculable. He’s literally ground up the majesty & prestige of the American White House into raw hamburger — filled with gristle + fat.
.
We are now the laughing stock of the civilized world. Dare I say, even the uncivilized world?
.
So, Trump supporters, do us all a big fucking favor. Drop your socks + grab your cocks and just “freeze” —-> until ICE/Immigration and Customs Enforcement can get around to re-reviewing your “papers” —> because the way you conduct yourselves suggest that you may very well be an inside cell of ISIS or an off-shoot of that group!
.
Bye, Bye, Now, Take Care!!

.

.

.

We’re from Sheboygan, family name is Hogan
We grew up in small town America
We’re from Sheboygan, Not Far From Logan
We grew up chasing a girl named Erica
.
One day we went to see dad @ the plant
We grew up in a small town with a cafeteria
This day we had lunch with his crew who went on a rant
We grew up in a small town overgrown with wisteria
.
America, this country done forgot us white boys
We grew up in a small town with a definie criteria
Continued to eat and drink when one of’em employs
Said, shit, our lives aint’ worth a case of dyptheria
.
Them damned elites, college boys, uppity women
We grew up in a small town with certain ways
Talk turned to city folk libs and all their vermin
Them books ain’t shit, cause we just get smaller pays
.
Yep, damn fancy folk think they smarter’an rest of us
We grew up in a small town where everyone prays
Shouts are heard they’re out to close down our Cost-Plus
Well, damn, we’ll just shut down their fancy-ass plays
.
Sheboygan don’t have no use for our new visitors
We grew up in a small town where everyone says
Not enough steady work for all of us & we ain’t quitters
Hell-fire, give us back our life and old-time parades
.
America, this country done forgot us white boys
We grew up in a small town with hardly any gays
As those eating finished, lunch pails clicking, heard a noise
Fox news blaring in background, Trump saying – am taking you back to the old days
.
That’s it, we want our Sheboygan back, just the way we remember
We grew up in a small town where everyone danced to DJ’s
Trump, turn it all around and go back, go back to those days of September
Friday nite football, Saturday nite drive-thrus, and Sunday morn. in church with sun rays
.
You may laugh, you may deride, we may be dismissed
But Sheboygan don’t care, we just be bigley pissed
It’s them or us, it’s them or bust, it’s them or rust
Sheboygan ain’t big enough for all of us, all of us
.
We were here first, first come, first serve
Sheboygan just wants the bounty @ the dinner table
Those who want to barge in unnanounced have some nerve
Won’t put up anymore, if we says illegal, that’s just our label
.
Sheboygan wants to remain Sheboygan and not Anatolian
We grew up in a small town where everyone stays
Our life begins + ends with our work, can’t be done by any Himmalyan
So there you go, there you be, quit fucking with our All-American ways

TRUMP CAMPAIGN OPERATIVE RECRUITED U.K. CYBER EXPERT TO COLLUDE WITH PUTIN’S RUSSIA!

For The AUDIO Version Of This, Click On BELOW ——> (11-min. in length)

.

.
 The following “excerpt” is lifted from a 6-30-17 blog post by Matt Tait — A British CyberSecurity Consultant —-> https://www.lawfareblog.com — (Matt Tait is the CEO and founder of Capital Alpha Security, a UK based security consultancy which focuses on research into software vulnerabilities, exploit mitigations and applied cryptography.)

.

On June 14, 2016 the Washington Post reported on a hack of the DNC ostensibly by Russian intelligence.  Material from this hack began appearing online, courtesy of the “Guccifer 2” online persona.
.
A few weeks later, right around the time the DNC emails were dumped by Wikileaks—and curiously, around the same time Trump called for the Russians to get Hillary Clinton’s missing emails— Matt Tait was contacted out of the blue by a man named Peter Smith, who had seen Tait’s work going through these emails.  Smith implied that he was a well-connected Republican political operative who knew Lt. General Michael Flynn, who would go on to become Trump’s 1st National Security Advisor, as well as Flynn’s son, very well.
.
Although it wasn’t initially clear to Tait how independent Smith’s operation was from Flynn or the Trump campaign, it was immediately apparent that Smith was both well connected within the top echelons of the Trump campaign and he seemed to know both Lt. Gen. Flynn and his son well.  Smith routinely talked about the goings on at the top of the Trump team, offering deep insights into the bizarre world at the top of the Trump campaign. Smith told of Flynn’s deep dislike of Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, whom Flynn blamed for his dismissal by President Obama. Smith told of Flynn’s moves to position himself to become CIA Director under Trump, but also that Flynn had been persuaded that the Senate confirmation process would be prohibitively difficult.  He would instead therefore become National Security Advisor should Trump win the election, Smith said.  He also told of a deep sense of angst even among Trump loyalists in the campaign, saying “Trump often just repeats whatever he’s heard from the last person who spoke to him,” and expressing the view that this was especially dangerous when Trump was away.
.
Yet Smith had not contacted Tait about the DNC hack, but rather about his conviction that Hillary Clinton’s private email server had been hacked—in his view almost certainly both by the Russian government and likely by multiple other hackers too—and his desire to ensure that the fruits of those hacks were exposed prior to the election.  Over the course of a long phone call, Smith mentioned that he had been contacted by someone on the “Dark Web” who claimed to have a copy of emails from Secretary Clinton’s private server, and this was why he had contacted Tait; Smith wanted Tait to help validate whether or not the emails were genuine.
.
Tait explained that if someone had contacted Smith via the “Dark Web” with Clinton’s personal emails, Smith should take very seriously the possibility that this may have been part of a wider Russian campaign against the United States.  And Tait said Smith need not take Tait’s word for it, pointing to a number of occasions where US officials had made it clear that this was the view of the U.S. intelligence community as well.
.
Smith, however, didn’t seem to care.  From his perspective it didn’t matter who had taken the emails, or their motives for doing so.  He never expressed to Tait any discomfort with the possibility that the emails he was seeking were potentially from a Russian front, a likelihood he was happy to acknowledge.  If they were genuine, they would hurt Clinton’s chances, and therefore help Trump.
.
Towards the end of one of their conversations, Smith made his pitch.  He said that his team had been contacted by someone on the “dark web”; that this person had the emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server (which she had subsequently deleted), and that Smith wanted to establish if the emails were genuine.  If so, he wanted to ensure that they became public prior to the election.  What he wanted from Tait was to determine if the emails were genuine or not.
.
It is no overstatement to say that Tait’s conversations with Smith shocked Tait.  Given the amount of media attention given at the time to the likely involvement of the Russian government in the DNC hack, it seemed mind-boggling for the Trump campaign—or for this offshoot of it—to be actively seeking those emails.  To Tait this felt really wrong.
.
In Tait’s conversations with Smith and his colleague, Tait tried to stress this point:  if this dark web contact is a front for the Russian government, you really don’t want to play this game.  But Smith & his colleague were not discouraged.  They appeared to be convinced of the need to obtain Clinton’s private emails and make them public, and they had a reckless lack of interest in whether the emails came from a Russian cut-out.  Indeed, they made it quite clear to Tait that it made no difference to them who hacked the emails or why they did so, only that the emails be found and made public before the election.
.
Then, a few weeks into Tait’s interactions with Smith, Smith sent Tait a document, ostensibly a cover page for a dossier of opposition research to be compiled by Smith’s group, and which purported to clear up who was involved.  The document was entitled “A Demonstrative Pedagogical Summary to be Developed and Released Prior to November 8, 2016,” and dated September 7.  It detailed a company Smith and his colleagues had set up as a vehicle to conduct the research: “KLS Research”, set up as a Delaware LLC “to avoid campaign reporting,” and listing four groups who were involved in one way or another.
.
The first group, entitled “Trump Campaign (in coordination to the extent permitted as an independent expenditure)” listed a number of senior campaign officials:  Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Sam Clovis, Lt. Gen. Flynn and Lisa Nelson.
.
Tait’s perception then was that the inclusion of Trump campaign officials on this document was not merely a name-dropping exercise.  This document was about establishing a company to conduct opposition research on behalf of the Trump 2016 presidential campaign, but operating at a distance so as to avoid campaign reporting.  Indeed, the document says as much in black and white.
.
The combination of Smith’s deep knowledge of the inner workings of the Trump 2016 presidential campaign, this document naming him in the “Trump campaign” group, and the multiple references to needing to avoid campaign reporting suggested to Tait that the group was formed with the blessing of the Trump campaign.  In the Wall Street Journal’s story of June 29, 2017, several of the individuals named in the document denied any connection to Smith, and it’s certainly possible that he was a big name-dropper and never really represented anyone other than himself.  If that’s the case, Smith talked a very good game.
.
After all, Clinton’s private emails never materialized.  We couldn’t show that Smith had been in contact with actual Russians.  And while Tait believed—and still does—that Smith was operating with some degree of coordination with the campaign, that was at least a little murky too.  The story just didn’t make much sense—that is, until the Wall Street Journal’s June 29, 2017 new article cited the critical fact that U.S. intelligence had reported that Russian hackers were looking to get emails to Flynn through a cut-out during the Summer of 2016, and so this was now no mere idle speculation on anyone’s part.
.
Suddenly, this story seems important—and ominous.

The “smarmy” little weasle leading the Republicans in the U.S. Senate, Senate Leader Mitch McConnell Of Kentucky, is attempting to ram the Republican version of health care through that body, by Friday, in a take-it or leave-it fashion, with no more than a total of 10 hours set aside for floor debate.
.
Here are just a few of the highlights comprising this piece of legislation:

1.  The guarantee of coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions may or may not survive this piece of legislation, but even if it does, it’ll come with an exhorbitant price, making insurance for those individuals far greater than under Obamacare.  The Senate bill will include a provision allowing individual states to opt out of Obamacare’s unconditional guarantee for those with pre-existing conditions that will thereby allow such states the option of continuing coverage for this segment but with sharp hikes in insurance premiums.
.
2.  A disaster for those lower income individuals whose only access to health care through Obamacare is via Medicaid. But if the GOP has their way, Medicaid will be severely curtailed in the next few years such that millions of folks will be left high and dry with no reasonable access to any health insurance coverage. The formula for “gutting” Medicaid” is a stealth-like tactic dreamed up by this current GOP leadership. Currently, Medicaid funding is increased each and every year based upon the increase in the costs of medical coverage. Under the new formula proposed by McConnell & “crew”, funding for Medicaid will be based upon the overall increase in the cost of all goods and services. It’s well-established that year-over-year price increases for just medical care is much greater than that for the general price increase for all goods and services. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to conclude that over 5-10 years and well beyond the funding level for Medicaid will fall further and further behind the needs of that part of the American population that needs it the most, the lower-income segment.
.
3.  Planned Parenthood is likely on the chopping block. At the very least, funding will be severely curtailed forcing stark cutbacks of basic services to women of all ages.
.
4.  Individual states will be able to “opt” out of the Obamacare guarantee of nondiscriminatory treatment of individuals based upon age whereby insurance companies will be free to charge higher premiums for for older, more ill-prone Americans than for younger & healthier folks.
.
5.  In general, basic premiums will be higher, out-of-pocket co-pays will be higher, and life-time coverage will be capped at substantially lower levels.
.
6.  And finally, the basic list of guaranteed categories of health services provided under Obamacare will be slashed back to just a few items. Currently under Obamacare there are around 10 different categories of health care services that are automatically/unconditionally provided for while under Trumpcare that number will be drastically scaled back/reduced.
.
7.  The money saved by the reduced coverage and higher premiums under the Senate Republican health care bill will in turn pay for the massive tax cut to benefit the top 2% of individuals/families in this country.
.
In short, the Trumpcare bill making its way through the U.S. Senate right now is a fraud perpetrated on voters simply to provide for an enormous tax break for the top 2% of Americans.
.
The good news is that as of today — Sunday, June 25, 2017 — there are currently 7 Republican senators on the record as not sold on this health care legislation. They include, Jerry Moran of Kansas, Ted Cruz Of Texas, Rob Johnson Of Wisconsin, Rand Paul Of Kentucky, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Dean Heller Of Utah.  And just in today’s news — it’s been reported that Koch Bros./Charles + David are funding efforts at opposing the Senate’s Trumpcare bill as not being CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH!  They will be spending millions of dollars to force the U.S. Senate to come up with a far more draconian/conservative health care bill.
.
The GOP can afford to lose only 2 votes from their caucus as they have only 52 GOP senators in the U.S. Senate.  In the event of a 50-50 tie, the Republican Vice President, Mike Pence, would cast the tie-breaking vote.
.
Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine said today that she did not envision how this bill could likely pass in its current form by the end of this week.
.
Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell, wants to wrap this all up before July 4th.  Good luck Mitch.  Trying to get a health care bill shoved through Congress with a known disapproval rating among the American public at around 80% is going to be no small feat.
