Rosanne, math, trade war

 
Rosanne is back in the news after tweeting something racist and as a result her show was cancelled. I am not going to spend time judging her for that tweet but I want to bring up several points.

Lots of progressive shows are now calling her mentality ill. I said that months ago. I don't mean to gloat but we shouldn't judge her too harshly because she obviously has mental problems and should get treatment.

I am not sure I would have fired her but if there were executives that wanted her fired I would just go along with them. Racism is a bad look and shouldn't be tolerated from a representative of the network. Then again I really don't like policing people's speech and it's unfair that the overall cast have to lose their jobs. So I wouldn't have fired her but if I was the sole person responsible I would have insisted that she gets help. If she didn't I'd hope like hell other people force me to fire her. If this doesn't happen, well I don't think the network can tolerant racism, so I would be forced to fire her.

That is a consistent paragraph as I said I wasn't SURE if I would have fired her but then concluded that she needed to go, but only after refusing help.

People brought up the fact that Bill Maher asked if Orange Buffoon was a son of an ape. I am not sure if I should be angered by this stupidity or people are really this ignorant and lack any sense of context. Calling white people apes is not historically racist, calling black people is. It was not used to justify slavery against white people and to belittle them. Secondly he did that IN RESPONSE TO ORANGE BUFFOON BEING FUCKING RACIST BY SUGGESTING OBAMA WASN'T BORN IN THE US. How can people think that the two are the same?

People are attacking liberals with things that that they didn't do by posting fake tweets and fake photos. I saw one of Whippi and I first thought her shirt was not racist; my second was let's just check if that photo was real. It wasn't real! Stop fucking lying, it makes your side look stupid and people not trust you. If you posted that honestly, please reconsider listening to people trying to fool you with fake photos, if I hadn't seen it done many times in the past I wouldn't have been so skeptical.

To her fans who like her because she's honest. She once dressed up as hitler placing jews in the oven. I think it's OK to judge her fans! She also tweets pizzagate nonsense and have called both sides of the Israel Palestinian conflict nazis. Again this person needs help. Please like honesty AND and a sound mind. People can like who they like, but for fuck sakes have some standards!

If you believe in the pizzagate nonsense something is probably wrong with your brain or you're just blinded by emotional hatred of Hillary Clinton. I was going to say ignorant but really if you won't research the conspiracy before believing it you probably have a few screws loose.

This is a problem with a personality driven media. When the cast attach themselves to a personality and she goes awol that is just a risk you took. Perhaps if society ignored celebrities this wouldn't happen.

A Buffoon supporter tweets racist things, how shocking!

Meanwhile the death toll from the recent hurricane is 70x higher than what the government reports and they just can't find 1500 immigrant children. Yet the president whines about TV shows on Twitter. As I understand it the second problem was caused by not adequately funding government services and the current climate with immigrants. families are not picking up the phone due to the fear of being deported. However they really don't know where some of them are, they could be sold for all they know. Disgraceful.

Oh and Orange Buffoon has started a trade war with several countries. Basically the countries involved are just putting up the cost of particular goods because the US started it. In theory it is about keeping jobs but in practice it is doing little other than raising prices of goods for people.

Orange Buffoon vs Technology

 
I am going to cover a largely irrelevant story but it's a good description of the Buffoon presidency. Orange Buffoon spelt Melania's name incorrectly, Melanie. Let me do a slight defense of Buffoon, it was probably a problem with auto correct. With that being said, I also use word prediction and in most cases you can add words to the dictionary. It doesn't appear his wife's name is in the dictionary. I find this amusing. This is the issue overall. you have to be incompetent beyond any measure to get your wife's name wrong, he is the President of the United States. What an absolute moron.

He is also using an unsecure phone to conduct White House affairs. BUT HER EMAILS! The phone can be easily hacked. BUT HER FUCKING EMAILS! He is just refusing to use a secured phone because it's inconvenient and doesn't want to report it to John Kelly. (hey, look who still has a job!) This is nothing but narcissism from Buffoon, he probably thinks his phone cannot be hacked and if anybody tried he'll launch fire and fury on to them. SAD!

nothing good happening with North Korea

 
For a while it looked like North Korea was going to be more stable but that hope appears to have gone. People speculate that Orange Buffoon is so crazy North Korea didn't know if they were going to be next in line for the US to \'spread democracy" which the term is an absolute joke considering Orange Buffoon lost the popular vote by 2.9 million which is practically the voting population of New Zealand. Bush also lost the popular vote and attempted to \'spread democracy". That's 2 for 2 Republican presidents who didn't get elected by the popular vote initially so the US can fuck off with spreading democracy since it doesn't have it itself. Perhaps North Korea was always just wasting time as it has done in the past, or perhaps it saw the US tore up the Iran deal and concluded they will invade it instead. Either way I didn't initially cover it, and this probably has come to nothing. I wish that I could claim brilliant foresight and I knew this would be the logical conclusion, but it's just a case of limited time.

Ian deal broken

 
Orange fucking idiot cancelled the Iran deal with the US. MACSA - MAKE AMERICA COMPLETELY STUPID AGAIN. I have insomnia and am busy, I'm just going to quickly rant. What a fucking idiot. I bet he is getting great joy destroying part of Obama's legacy, perhaps one of his greatest accomplishments. This came about a week after the Israeli gave a speech saying Iran was not complying with the deal but cited outdated information and the speech was bullshit, so fuck him! The government agencies said Iran was complying. There was no reason to do this other than setting the stage for war. George W Bush was also a fucking idiot that was fooled into a war. There is a bigger fucking idiot in the Whitehouse. History is in the middle of repeating itself. One problem, many people would have been fooled about Iraq but it has not even been two decades since. Not as many people will be fooled now, and the Dear Leader is historically disliked. I don't think that he will get the support Bush got, unless America ha completely lost their mind. My guess is the neocons aka delusional sadistic fuckwitts will go in before 2020 regardless of who's President, probably Pence. If the fuckers go in expect at least one terrorist group to rise up, happened last time with ISIS. This will be an utter fucking mess caused by an utter fucking idiot who didn't win the popular vote. It's 2003 all over again, fuck.

Orange Buffoon and Kanye West

 
Orange Buffoon keeps making an ass of himself, so does Kanye West. Both people have something in common; a number of people they're secret geniuses when they're probably just fucking idiots.

Orange went on Fox and Friends and probably was suffering some kind of mental seizure; that is the only way it makes logical sense, or maybe he was on drugs and/or suffering from extreme sleep deprivation. He just kept repeating the word business. Michael Cohen has a business, he has lots of business, I don't know his business, he's a business person. This is not far off from the actual interview, I couldn't stop laughing. The prosecution used his "rant" to say the seized documents weren't covered by attorney client privilege due to the apparent business nature of the Buffoon Cohen relationship. The orange idiot probably was repeating the word business in order to save himself, he did the opposite. What a fucking idiot. No wonder two lawyers of his quit. Their replacements are a former Clinton impeachment lawyer and a former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani who hasn't practiced law for a decade and appears to like going on TV and basically admit to campaign finance violations committed by Orange Buffoon. Apparently the thinking behind this is it's either Buffoon or Cohan broke the law and they don't want Cohan to flip.

An observation: If the porn star payment was funneled through a Super PAC then it probably wouldn't have been illegal. As always Buffon's people appear to be completely incompetent and have no idea what they're doing.

Kanye West said that slavery was a choice. I am not going to bother saying this is wrong, that should be obvious to everyone who isn't a complete fuckwitt. People in the past have called Kanye a genius because of his musical abilities however this is hardly the first crazy thing he said. Many musicians have writers but let's say he is a musical genius; he's probably a person who is good at one thing back is absolutely batshit insane at everything else. I think that this would describe Kanye.

Incels, dating sites

 
There was a terrorist attack by an "involuntarily celibate" guy this week, and it was not the first. To put it simply these guys are so angry and bitter that they can't get laid that they commit terrorist attacks. In the US one had a gun, in the UK one ran people owner. What is interesting is in the age of Tindr it should not that difficult for an able body person to get laid. If you want to commit terrorism or sympathize with these types of terrorists you probably have a few screws loose, and that is probably the reason why you can't get sex. This is also true for muslim terrorists, many of them want glory because they feel inadequate in their life. The only solution are groups to drive people in the right direction such as encouraging them to seek personal coaching etc. not from dating guru assholes but from actually trained behavioral therapists. Though it's possible some have personality disorders that will never do this, but offering non judgemental alternatives would make the groups of incels smaller. I can also say that I frequently go a few months at a time without getting laid but I never wanted to end people's lives over it.

This next story is related. Politicians in the US have passed bills that hold dating sites liable for sex trafficking activities. This on the surface sounds good but many people think that it goes to far. Think craigslist for example, if someone posts a classified ad and is somehow conducting sex trafficking should Craigslist be responsible? Before you say yes I would ask how would they know? It's not like people post ads going HELLO I'M A SEX TRAFFICKER! Furthermore they have thousands of ads. There is just no way to realistically tell even if manually approving ad; criminals don't often broadcast the fact that they're criminals unless they're working for the current president. This is not to say sites shouldn't cooperate with authorities, they should and if they're are not and/or allow people who they know are committing crimes on their network yes those things should absolutely be crimes. The current versions of the bills are too far reaching and in my opinion allows selective prosecution.

Not only that it's the big companies who will likely lobby themselves out of any trouble. If I started a dating site which frankly I was going to do it would be a big risk, though maybe I could use bankruptcy laws and use another entity to buy the website. Though for the domain I brought I'll probably do some niche dating articles and try monetizing with affiliate programs.

The story relates to the first as they are cutting off ways for people to get laid. If their goal was to grow incel terrorism this would be a very effective way of doing that. I am not suggesting that this is the goal, just that they're so stupid they don't know what they're doing and have no idea what they're legislating. You only have to see their questions to Mark Zuckerburg to see that they have absolutely no clue when it comes to regulating websites; they should learn. By the way now you've screwed dating startups, nice job idiots!

I was going to cover Orange Buffoon's meltdown on Fox News but I think I will do it next week.

Barbara Bush and YouTube

 
Barbara Bush died, some people have been criticized for speaking ill of the dead. I don't subscribe to that rule at all so here we go. Barbara Bush is largely irrelevant, but any week that I can avoid talking about Orange Buffoon I'll take. You may say she wasn't in power; her husband and son were. True, but she also didn't want to be inconvenienced by people mentioning the "body bags" coming home from Iraq. Spare me the let's not criticize the dead, that's ridiculous. Especially since when black men are killed by cops or someone like George Zimmerman the media is always quick to point out their cannabis usage. Some people on the right were smearing Trayvon Martin by claiming he was an entirely different person, that's literal. They said the media was lying and Zimmerman was attacked by a man which in no way resemble the actual victim. When Jimmy Carter got cancer people like Ann Couter said "a cancer has a cancer". Are conservatives offended that people criticized Barbara Bush? I don't care. I could research all the ways she was a flawed human being but I have better things to do. She's not worth my attention.

CBS claims ads are running on nazi videos and left-wing conspiracy shows like Jimmy Dore. I am actually going to split from the left echo chamber and say Dore has conspiracy elements to his show particularly surrounding Russia. Though the example CBS brings up is a very poor one. Yes! Many people are questioning who done the chemical weapon attack in Syria; including myself! It's not as if your government has never lied about war. See last entry. It is very convenient to scare advertisers away from independent media since they are not spending money with you. Here's the problem; many young people do not trust traditional media, and perhaps you can thank your Dear Leader for labeling you fake news on right. On the left independent media serves them better. If your industry is irrelevant to more and more of the population these scare tactic articles will only go so far; perhaps you should make a better product!

Buffoon Lawyer, Syria, Pulse nightclub

 
Finally some actual news. Buffoon's lawyer got his office raided. You have to be really bad at crime to get your lawyer's office raided. It looks like the lawyer broke the law by paying off Stormy Daniels in the middle of the campaign. Privilege doesn't apply if you commit a crime as a lawyer but I don't know how far reaching this is. It probably still applies in unrelated matters. So don't get too excited. However if the lawyer has committed a crime he could probably turn against his client. Also if this is his way of doing business has he made similar mistakes in other areas? Wait and see.

Syria apparently launched another chemical attack resulting in firepower from the U.S. Whether the Syrian government actually launched such weapons, fuck knows! The attack last year was not confirmed as being from the Syrian government. It could be the other side for all we know, even a host on Fox News has pointed this out, along with independent outlets like TheYoungTurks. Why would Assad launch a chemical attack soon after the U.S. announced they're leaving? This would be counter productive. This sounds like Iraq has weapons of mass destruction to me. Any time a government says that they're going to war because, I am just going to assume they're lying. Also the U.S. declaring war always makes things worse. Topple Assad and Islamic radicals are waiting to take over. It's a no win situation, for fuck sakes leave it alone. It would be helpful if foreign governments took this line instead of saying that the attack was understandable.

People including myself got things wrong about the Pulse nightclub shooting. I don't know why this is only just coming out now. The shooter wasn't on gay dating apps and had not visited the gay nightclub before. He intended to shoot up another nightclub but it was closed. From the information at the time he looked like a self hating closeted homosexual but it seems that he was just a regular terrorist.

Whitehouse, YouTube

 
Orange Buffoon said something remarkibly stupid. Of course he did. This is nothing new but let's laugh at it anyway. On easter he did a speech to kids and he was praising the military, because apparently kids really care about that. That wasn't even the funniest part. He said that his people keep the building in tippy toppy shape and the building that he was in had no name; he was talking about the Whitehouse, so pretty sure it had a name! The only way that I can explain that is he was just rambling crap without really knowing what he was saying or putting a coherrent thought together. Again, nothing new but found this hilarious.

A woman did a shooting at YouTube headquarters, I am mainly covering this to say that it could have happened anywhere as it is the United States, shootings happen everywhere; the YouTube community is sensatoning this. People are frustrated about ads being pulled off their videos. Of course it is not a reason to go on a shooting spree but crazy people are not rational. On a personal note I am not happy about not being a YouTube partner anymore but I was only making $1 per year from videos, so meh!

VA, Roseanne

 
The head of veterans health-care has been fired because he was resisting moves to do privatizations; good for him. His replacement is the guy that gave the press conference about Dear Leader's health. His experience at running a programme like the VA. Fuck all. Compliment Buffoon, you'll get promoted. Privatization will be a fucking disaster. Right wing 101: Under fund something so it breaks then scream privatization as the solution. You just add an profit incentive with privatization which despite the right wing fantasy leads to worse services as corporations try to squeeze as much profit out with of it as they can.

Let's talk about Rosanne because I am sick of covering the Buffoon show. I may reduce these blogs; it's becoming unbearable. Rosanne, former green party candidate for President, now a Buffoon supporter. What the fuck? I really think she's gone nuts as I saw an interview with her a few years ago, she was rambling about evil. Her reasoning doesn't really add up on supporting Buffoon as she claimed the people wanted change but 2.9 million more voted for Hillary. You could legitimately claim that the people wanted a change from neoliberalism despite this but Orange Buffoon is not that change. He is a racist asshole appointing Goldman Sachs and an oil CEO to his cabinet, oh I almost forgot people who have nazi ties. I really don't think people were looking for that change. It would be like looking for a bird, and instead of finding that cute little singing bird, you find a bear that beats and eats you, then your family goes bankrupt from the debt that you left behind. I know what you're thinking; my stories are wonderful; I should write novels. Perhaps she is one of those people who think Orange Buffoon could blow up the system but people who think like that are taking risks, there is absolutely no guarantee that if the system does blow up, the poor will benefit. it didn't in 2008 after all. Ensuring that actual progressives are elected is probably the only way to do that.

Buffoon departures, Cambridge Analytica

 
H.R. McMaster resigned, was Buffoon's National Security Adviser, now being replaced with a war hawk neocon that still thinks the Iraq war was a good idea. Apparently Buffoon didn't consider him first time because of his moustache but he thought that he did well on Fox News so he is now hiring him. I am not making this up, this isn't satire, this is the news today. The Deputy Attorney General was fired days before he was scheduled to retire. Apparently this is because the administration wants to discredit him as bitter if he testifies down the track.

Cambridge Analytica. Facebook has gotten themselves into a cluserfuck as this company was able to steal the data of tens of millions of users. That is not something that you just missed. You know when a company is sucking gigabytes of data. You can't blame Orange Buffoon because he probably didn't know, he doesn't know much of anything. Political parties building profiles of voters is just standard practice even if they are building information with door to door tactics. I think that the problem is when they illegally acquire information, obviously they shouldn't do that. This is true for the private sector. Big data is big business. Especially for advertising and now social media companies. A decade ago it was ad servers that would build a profile of you. Now social media companies are doing it and people are volunteering their information. ID thieves could have a field day and for social media they don't even have to be a staff member. VPNs are no good because then they just have the information themselves. I don't have a solution but ensuring there is regulations around data storage would be good, then again companies can just incorporate anywhere in the world. There is no solution, we're all fucked!

Tillison, Replacements, NZ Greens, American Idol

 
Rex Tillison was voted off the island; he was fired. This came after he said that Russia was probably responsible for the poisoning in the UK of a Russian spy. (which it probably was, anybody that gives Putin the benefit of the doubt is just trying to view Putin in a more positive light, which is just fucking bizarre coming from some on the left. Putin is an anti gay dictator who invades places with a history of ordering his political enemies to be killed but when an ex Russian spy is attacked with a substance unique to Russia we apparently not suppose to jump to the most obvious conclusion in the world. I'm not saying don't investigate, but we don't have to be Putin apologists for fuck sakes) Rex previously called Orange Buffoon a fucking moron, I'm surprised that the firing didn't happen sooner.

His replacement appears to be the current CIA director who seems to be a puppet for the Koch family. So from one oil company puppet to another oil company puppet, what part of this is drainning to swamp? The new CIA head approved torture programs and probably should be in prison. Thanks Obama for not prosecuting torturers. In related news the new Economic Adviser may be a CNBC contributor that didn't predict the financial collapse or the housing bubble and also believes in trickle down economics. This person is basically a reality denier that fucks up constantly. A perfect match for Orange Buffoon.

The Greens in New Zealand have done a deal with National to give them some of their questions. National is the opposition, this is fucking stupid. Is James Shaw aware that we don't live in the U.S.A. where working with your opposition is fetishized? By the way when that is done it's never to the benefit of the left. Hillary Clinton wanted to work with Republicans, that worked out well for her. If the Greens wanted to make the government transparent the best way to do that is ask the questions yourself instead of giving your opposition air time. If the goal was to pick up National voters. Again, Hillary Clinton thought similarly, good luck with that. For people who want a National Green government, it will only lead the death of the Greens as their left-wing base will go elsewhere. What Green supporter is like "Gee, I really wish that National got to ask the government more questions" no fucking body has said that, what the fuck?

Katy Perry kissed a male 20 year old American Idol contestant. My feeling is the boy wanted his first kiss to be special, and that should have been respected. I will give the benefit of the doubt that it wasn't known. Some are labeling this sexual harassment, while true, this is also TV, not that it excuses the behaviour but I guess things happen and some people look on it differently. If this was arranged prior I wouldn't have a problem, this isn't about the age gap it's about consent. Poor judgment from the people at Idol, great publicity stunt from a show nobody cares about but extremely poor execution. An apology and compensation of some sort could be the best course of action.

Boring news, Democrates

 
The news is getting boring.
Stormy Daniels news, don't care, boring.
Two people left the Buffoon administration, people leave every few weeks. The top economic adviser has left; he got his tax cuts, now no reason to stay and get dragged down with the Buffoon administration. The Communications Director offended Buffoon by saying her job was to tell lies for him, gone.
I don't want to cover Russia news.

The Democrates are helping Republicans to deregulate the banks including allowing banks to hide information on racial discrimination. You would think that they would be smarter and realize their base is going to hate them for it, apparently not.

Meanwhile Corey Booker and Kisten Gilibrand have stopped taking corporate PAC money, in short because they want to be President and think that this will play well with the base. No corporate PAC money doesn't mean no big money, they can still hold fund raisers with rich donors. Corey Booker is a corporatist. Kirsten Gilibrand seems to be a shape shifter that adjust her beliefs depending on who she wants votes from; she had a reputation as being a corporate democrate, now apparently she's a progressive. My gut feeling is you should trust people that have been progressive all along rather than people that may be doing it for theatre; Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, Nina Turner and to a lesser extent Elizabeth Warren.

Parkland fallout

 
Conspiracy theorists allege the Parkland survivors are paid actors. If you think this you may want to commit yourself to somewhere, or see a councillor, or read up on critical thinking. if your first thought after a tragedy is ACTORS, there's probably something wrong with your brain. George Soros is probably not funding them, but even if he was, and? So Soros is helping survivors of a school shooting with their gun control cause, uhhhhh good for him I guess? But George Soros is not funding the activities and the people who say this are paranoid idiots that say Soros is behind everything. I try not to call groups of people idiots now, but I will make an exception for conspiracy nutjobs.

Alex Jones had two copyright strikes because of this. Liberals say that it would be bad if he lost his channel. I disagree. He slanders people and should be sued, perhaps constantly. Accusing school shooter survivors of being actors is slander and he should be sued. His followers are paranoid morons with guns. If there's a legal way to stop him; I say go for it. You would be doing the public a service. Someone already showed up at a pizza shop with a gun because of some whacky Hillary Clinton conspiracy theory, who's next? I believe in legal action. If YouTube by itself wants to shut him down, I wouldn't have a problem with that since he slanders people, however that means that they can take such action for any view whatsoever. (which they can anyway) Legal action is a much better way to do this.

Republicans now want to arm teachers. I am sure that giving guns to underpaid, stressed out teachers dealing with problematic students would be a great idea, why not just arm the students too? You wonder what the republicans are thinking, sounds like the wild west. Wouldn't they just aim for the teachers first? Let alone if guns are taken by a student, or a teacher snaps. This has disaster written all over it. Banning assault rifles from being sold is the only thing that is going to help in this situation. The fact is that hand guns and knives don't do as much damage. This is completely obvious!

Drug dealers and Ecstasy

 
Orange Buffoon thinks that drug dealers should be killed. This sounds like the Philippines president to me and he in my opinion is an even worse lunatic than Buffoon. Now Buffoon is echoing that lunatic. Does Orange Buffoon also want to kill the manufactures of opiods whose drugs kill about 90 people a day in the US alone? I am guessing no. They're rich. They wear suits. He only wants to kill the drug dealer across the street. If that solution worked countries wouldn't keep have to keep murdering drug dealers. They have murdered about 10,000 drug dealers and users in the Philippines and the number keeps climbing. Death doesn't seem to be a deterrent. What would help is funding treatment programmes and making drugs as safe as possible including legalization. With unregulated drugs anything can be in them.

New Zealand has recently had bad batches of Ecstasy which could be fatal. You also had bad batches of beer back in the day. If it is illegal anything can get in. Regulation of drugs would stop this. As stated before you need to fund addiction programs to combat that side of things. You also need to educate people including doctors. Doctors don't want always know the harm products like benzos can cause over the long term, I imagine this is the same for opiods.

Indictments, Shooting, Justin Trudeau

 
Muller indicated 13 people connected to Russia for interfering in the US elections. What they would do is stir up stuff online and have bots to again stir shit. As a nerd, I find this interesting. They would attack both sides of an issue, retweet fake news. The main benefactor was Orange Buffoon but they provided a tiny bit of attention to Bernie Sanders and Jill Stien. However it's clear they were giving the overwhelming support to Buffoon. The indictments are not connected to the Buffoon campaign, but that's probably coming.

Yet another school shooting happened. Many progressives are sick of commenting on gun control including myself as nothing will be done. The only point I will bring up is people on the right say that we shouldn't talk about gun control because we're apparently politicizing tragedy; this has always been an absurd position, note they don't say when gun control CAN be talked about. I bring this up because there were interviews after the fact and at least three people were advocating for gun control. So when victims are advocating for gun control, it's time to do something about it. However, that won't happen and this will just keep happening. The President says it's mental health. I am not sure he's the right messenger for that. The President has also weakened laws on people who have a mental illness getting guns. People that have mental illness also are in other countries, the difference is they don't have access to assault rifles.

Justin Trudeau corrected a woman. He told her to say peoplekind not mankind because it's more inclusive. People like Justin Trudeau allow people like Dave Rubin to completely misrepresent the left and say we're all about social issues, this is utter bullshit. The fact is Trudeau is just another neoliberal like Hillary Clinton, a person who is unserious about solving other people's problems in favour of their wealthy donors. They make things only a tiny bit better while focusing on social issues. These people are not the left, real lefties wish they would all fuck off. So saying these people represent the left is not accurate; these people are conservatives pretending to be left and frankly we should kick them out of our parties. We should have people that fight for living wages, universal college/health-care etc. Justin Trudeau like Obama was good at acting but be warned that is not a good long term strategy.

Resignation, Russia

 
Another Buffoon aide has resigned for sexual abuse allegations. I can't remember his name and don't really care. The most interesting aspect of this story is why the allegations surfaced. Some say it's a power play to get rid of a John Kelly ally and eventually John Kelly himself. He is from my understanding the more reasonable ones in the Whitehouse so if he goes grab the popcorn it'll be more insanity.

Apparently the Dutch hacked Russia and saw people literally hacking the DNC. I say apparently because this sounds too convenient. If anything is going to doubt the Russia story it's convenient facts like this. Note to everyone. DON'T TAPE PEOPLE HACKING INTO THINGS! I don't want to be regarded as a conspiracy theorist, so let's say it's true. This is yet another example of FBI and CIA incompetence. Remember the iPhone that the FBI couldn't get into and they had to get a private company to do it? Apparently you don't find the best and brightest in American intelligence. Why did the Dutch uncover this and not Uncle Sam?

Finally a top figure in US cyber security said that Russia successfully hacked the voting system of 22 states. It's largely unknown what they did. I would be very interested in what they did in swing states. Not just the voting system itself but throwing people off rolls. Perhaps a more important question is why the US allow itself to be hacked? I think that they should go back to paper ballots. Someone suggested block chain voting, I was dismissive at the time but maybe it's worth considering if an electronic system must be used. I still say paper and you can trust me as a technology enthusiast. Technology is probably not the best option.

Memo, Deep State, Stormy Daniels

 
I am not sure what to cover with this memo bullshit, because it's bullshit. Republicans freaked out that there was a memo that was supposed to clear Orange Buffoon and open a new investigation into Hillary Clinton, or something. Anyway it turns out it was written by Republicans, and basically just explains what their interpretation of the investigation is. So the memo was totally worthless.

Republicans are also going on about a secret society and a deep state after a recent text message questioned whether someone was going to a meeting of the secret society. Any normal person would interpret that as a joke, but not tinfoil hat Republicans. They think that this non existant secret society is trying to overthrow Buffoon. By the way if Dear Leader is so great, why is he allowing this to happen? Isn't he in charge of everything? (except the justice department) Is he that incompetent that he can't control his own agencies? Actually, probably. However there is no plot to overthrow him. He probably would already be in jail or assassinated if that was the case. Instead there are legitimate investigations happening to find out what went on with Russia.



Finally Farron Cussins from The Ring O Fire radio argued that the Stormy Daniels story mattered because if campaign money was used to pay her off that's a felony. While technically true campaign laws are broken all the time including by the Clintons, though I don't know if they broke them to such a serious degree. I don't think he would go down for breaking campaign laws; there's probably more viable routes legally to take him down.

Stormy Daniels

 
Orange Buffoon had an affair with a porn star named Stormy Daniels. Let me first say if I was rich I would have sex with porn stars too. If anything he should be praised for having a consential relationship. There are at least a dozen relationships when consent wasn't granted, which obviously makes them much worse. The only reason why this is news is it is with a porn star. It is nothing but sensatonism. I am covering this because part of this blog is criticizing the media. I won't go into too many further details of the story, he should not have cheated on his wife, but I am not the marriage police, i don't even like the concept of monogamyI don't care. That is between him and his wife, which already seemed to hate him before all this.

The news organization that was sitting on the story was criticized for not releasing it before the election. I however seriously doubt that it would made a difference. It was known that he committed sexual assault before the election, this is no worse, if you think that it is, you're an idiot. However since the margns were so thin in several purple states he won I guess that it is possible.

Finally he paid her off to not tell anyone but the story was released anyway by a magazine that interviewed her before the pay off occurred. Typical winning from Buffoon. People have renewed interest in the pee tape because he now has a history of paying people off to cover up sexual activity. Personally I don't think that it makes it more or less likely. Just think that it exists. Because why the fuck not?

Government shut down, Jacinda Ardern

 
One year into Buffoon's presidency, the government is shut down. I thought he was good at making deals; he's like a smart person at making deals. A very stable genius at making deals! There are people who want to see if a business negotiator would be better than politics as usual. Considering no major reforms have past congress apart from the tax cuts and the government has shut down after a year, I think you have your answer! There are people who claim Buffoon is succeeding, but what does that mean? He's succeeding at making the rich richer. Some people point to economic growth, but there was economic growth under Bush too, then after about seven years it collapsed. The same thing will happen here, do you know why? In trickle down economies when deregulation is also a factor people get greedy and take more and more risk, sooner or later it blows up in everyone's faces and they have to get a bail out. Also due to the tax cuts companies are buying back their own stock, that's called market fixing. I thought corporations were going to use tax cuts for job growth. Turns out, no! While many are boosting about bonuses, the same companies are cutting jobs. The rich are just pocketing the tax cuts. What a surprise.

Over in New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is having a baby after three months in she was pregnant before the election but found out last month. I have a different point of view than many liberals. Firstly I have no interest in people's personal lives, particularly when it comes to the royal family; I don't want to see their baby photos, wedding pictures, don't care, boring. I immediately thought of a media frenzy, and it has already happened. So that's what we have for the next few years. Secondly about Clarke being a stay at home dad, great, but wages are so low the majority can't afford to do that. So maybe Jacinda should consider that point. Also if it was any other job the employer would not be thrilled. Jacinda is lucky, especially if in a 90 day right to sack environment. However people should realize that politicians and employees are allowed to have lives. Labour should form employment law accordingly. Employers telling people what to do in their private lives is a massive problem.
