Press confidence, Russia

 
A few days after Comey's testimony Orange Buffoon held a press conference, and it one of the most ridiculous things that I have ever seen. When Buffoon was answering questions he was moving his arms from side to side. I expect that is a sign he's lying. He said things like "No I did not do that, but even if I did there would be nothing wrong with that" O...K..., has anybody sounded more guilty in their life? From an analytical perspective he distance himself from Comey, "No I didn't ask for loyalty, I barely know Comey". Liars frequently distance themselves from the people involved. "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" they teach this stuff in talks and lectures. So, absurd press conference, Made Buffoon look worse.

The Russia investigation has extended to the Buffoon son-in-law and Buffoon itself. A special prosecutor has been assigned to the case. It's probably only a matter of time before another revelation is uncovered. Surely there's a reason why Buffoon's staff keep dropping off due to connections to Russia dating back to the campaign manager who changed the GOP'S platform to ease Crimea related sanctions. There's also reports that Buffoon wanted to do things that benefit Russia but wasn't able to do them. I guess this is like how Obama wanted to be more hawkish but ran into obstacles. People, including some progressives that say \'there's nothing there" are in denial. I have additionally come to the conclusion that the hookers pissing tape could be a real thing. Yes it's ridiculous but everything about this administration is ridiculous. Of course other things should be talked about; I am only covering the press conference because it was funny.

The republicans have basically taken an axe to Dodd Frank. I have mixed thoughts, the legislation was basically piss weak so in essence they weakened already piss weak. Another crash was always coming, it will come slightly sooner. Buffoon's approval rating is already lower than the percentage of people that want him impeached. A crash could lower this considerably from the current 35-40% approval rating, which is already record breaking disapproval since data on this began.

Corbyn, UK Internet, Buffoon

 
So the UK had its election. The left is bizarrely celebrating. Jeremy Corbyn lost. This is nothing to celebrate. I know he turned a 30 point deficit in the polls into less than 10 and took seats away from the Conservative Party and blah blah blah. He lost. He doesn't get a participation trophy from me. He deserves credit; it was the first time Labour received an increase since 1997. The Conservative Party now can't govern on its own and may do a deal with a fundamentalist religious party. There is nothing here to celebrate. Maybe he will be victorious next but I predict he will be removed as Labour leader and a neoliberal put in, hopefully I am wrong. Some of Clinton's people "helped" the Conservative campaign, you could say they helped it lose seats hahaha. Neither campaign did particularly well. This is a bad result for the left, but could end up winning us the long game if people dislike the new governing arrangement and Corbyn stays, I have doubts the latter will happen. Jeremy Corbyn lost, this is not time to be patting him on the back for giving a good try. Stop being ridiculous!

The current Conservative PM now wants to regulate the internet to help stop ISIS. I surprisingly will agree with this approach in theory, but in practice just assume that it will be implemented with the intention of taking people's rights and privacy away. I think ISIS should be shut down through very agressive means. Terrorists shouldn't be allowed to communicate via the internet, that's the most ridiculous thing ever! Shut the fuckers down. Sites and social media, gone. The status quo doesn't do this but instead collects everyone's data which does fuck all to solve the problem. I expect more status quo from the Conservatives instead of solutions that actually work.

Buffoon Of Our Lives update. James Comey testified after being fired, called Orange Buffoon a liar, boring. You'd have to be braindead not to know that. Perhaps the interesting thing is the reason why Russia interfered. Apparently they hate democracy and view it as a threat to their rule. So they try to undermine it. On reflection countries hating democracy sounds awfully like the terrorist explanation. So I guess make up your own mind whether you believe that. Surely it's not just some random coincidence that a Buffoon daughter and Putin's girlfriend hang out, not to mention Buffoon's zillion business ties to the russian oligarchs. Putin interfered because he hates democracy? Sorry, I'm going full skeptic on this. If we're being generous there could be a number of reasons he interfered. Why not interfere with someone you have ties to? Two birds, one stone I guess.

Manchester, Saudi Arabia

 
I am acknowledging the terror attack in Manchester but ultimately I really don't feel like I have too much to say on this. This randomly happens, they kill a lot of people in one place but ultimately your chances of dying at a concert is much lower than in a car crash. This will be my point. We must not let the terrorists win. They want to install fear upon us. We must continue to live. They must not be allowed to stop people having fun. Sometimes terrible things happen, 99.999% of the time they don't. We absolutely have to dismantle toxic ideologies, but should not stop our lives in the process. We need to continue going to concerts, marathons, nightclubs. We also need to be wary of any \'solutions" that governments impose. The terrorists love taking away freedoms, we shouldn't let the government do that for them. We should judge solutions on their merrits.

When talking about terrorism it is important to understand the root causes. I have said before the the US keeps giving arms and power to terrorists. Today is no different. The US signed a 110 BILLION DOLLAR deal with Saudi Arabia. This country is involved in the civil war in Yemon and has a similar ideology to ISIS. 15/19 of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis. Their government is a fundamentalist kingdom propped up by the west. It's a really bad idea to further weaponize them. There's Muslim theocracies that are more moderate, then there's Saudi Arabia that does everything to spread its toxic version of Islam around the world. Do you know how to win the war on terror? STOP ARMING THE TERRORISTS!

Ransomware, Ailes, Buffoon

 
There was a ransomware tech story recently. I generally think that tech VIRUS AHHHHHH stories are overhyped, this was no exception. 300,000 computers were infected but there are probably hundreds of millions of computers in existence, this would seem a tiny fraction. However from my understanding the ransomware was targeted, some predict that another attack will come later. In my opinion the most interesting aspect of this story was the fact the NSA knew of the hole but told Microsoft not to close it. Genius! I hope the lesson learned is not to follow such instructions in future. If the government can violate your technology, so can other people!

Roger Alies died. Many people believe that it is not right to criticize the dead, if you followed this blog for a while you know I am not one of those people. He was a horrible person, but ultimately was an evil genius. Before Fox News he advised Nixon, Regan and Bush senior. His channel also was the first to push the incorrect notion that Bush junior won Florida which shaped the conversation. Other channels to some degree follow Fox News; he knew that. He also knew by serving his base red meat he could also feed them propaganda. He shaped conservatism for a generation or more. He catered largely to bigots and idiots and used them for his own purposes, played them like a violin to vote against their own interest. He was successful at avoiding criticisms from other mainstream media, possibly due to the blackmail files he kept on his competitors, also if you criticize outlets they generally won't hire you should you need a job later. I already covered his abuse; the only thing I will add is I'm constantly baffled on why the rich don't just find willing participants to have sex with them; buy them a car or house. I know that it is a power thing, but to me it seems unnecessary. Roger was a true inspiration, to psychopaths and creepers.

In the latest episode of Buffoons Of Our Lives it turns out that Orange Buffoon asked Comey to drop the case against Mike Flynn who according to sources didn't even want to be National Security Adviser because of his ties to foreign governments. until Orange Buffoon insisted. Asking Comey to drop investigations is obstruction of justice. Now a Special Prosecutor has been assigned to the case. It's not looking good for Orange Buffoon. Before celebrating President Pence would be more competent at getting horrible shit done and would they let Russia off the hook? Things could get very ugly. It may be a case of better the devil you know.

Comey, Royals

 
James Comey was fired. People are speculating it was because of the Russia investigation but some say that Orange Baffon just wanted a lacky. Comey has made a name for himself by standing up to administrations. This has made him enemies on the left and the right. Buffon thought that the Democrates would be pleased pleased with the firing of Comey but as the saying goes; the enemy of my enemy is my friend. He was also well liked in one place: the FBI! Fire their leader and many will turn on the person who fired him.

In irrelevant monarchy news Philip is retiring from royal duties (smiling and waving must take its toll) and Diana's ex is in the hospital. The first broke my Facebook feed. I wasn't sure why friends were posting about a fucking meeting at a palace. Old guy retires. Boring! Abolishing the monarchy would be worth it to get less news about irrelevant crap. They are even reporting on people not even related by blood to the family. Fuck the media for covering this garbage. FUCK THEM WITH A GIANT AXE

Health-care, Obama, France

 
Republicans passed a replacement to the Affordable Care Act. In short it gives away 600 billion in tax cuts to the rich, includes an option for the states to do away with pre existing conditions, funds high risk pools by 8 billion but 200 billion, raises the uninsured rate from 10% to 19%. Fuck the Republicans. Democrates are singing this will be the end for them in the 2018 midterms. Well fuck the democrates too. Nobody should sing when people lose health-care. The Affordable Care Act is a largely shitty piece of legislation; it isn't a single payer system like every other developed country on earth and health-care costs are much higher. If the Democrates had the guts to fix these problems when they had a filibuster proof majority they would probably be popular enough that Orange Buffoon would never have become president. Instead they had to appease the Big Tent Fuckwit Brigade AKA the "moderate democrates" This means any reforms has to be piss weak. The lesson here is NEVER let your ideological opposition into your own party! They take over and even when you're in power you're practically useless!

Obama did a speech on Wall Street for 400 million dollars. For people who don't think it's a big deal ask yourself if he would still be doing it if he prosecuted the bankers for fraud or significantly tightened regulations by bringing back Glass Steagell? If you think yes, it's possible you're a stupid person. He was soft on the banks and now he's getting paid, much like the Clintons who took away Glass Steagell. When the next crash comes it is important not to just blame Orange Buffoon, some of the blame will be on the New Democrates.

France is about to get more right wing, the question is how much. Similarly to the US the possibilities are now between a neoliberal character and a fascist one. There was more candidates for the dominate party but they got eliminated, sounds like a reality TV show. Many people believe that the Orange Buffoon type character won't win, but then again "many many" people thought that about the man itself. France has been previously more socialist so it's possible the "fuck it" voter won't have so much of an effect. Let's hope they don't go all the way to the insane right. UPDaTE: the insane right was not chosen.

Tax Plan, Bill O'Reilly

 
Buffoon released his tax plan, it's a huge give away to the rich. Duh! Gets rid of the estate tax, as an old rich guy his family would benefit tremendously. Reduces tax on investments such as stocks. So far this affects the middle class fuck all. Also gets rid of the Alternative Minimum Tax which forces people like Orange Buffoon to pay 25% tax instead of 5% with various accounting tricks. They basically doubled the itemized deduction threshold but from my understanding this affects very limited poor people. It additionally allows for pass through corporations so that (again rich) people can be taxed at a lower rate for corporations instead of 39%. This is nothing but a windfall for the rich. It will fuck the budget so they're forced to cut programs, mainly for low to medium income earners which by the way would off set some of the few benefits those people get. Giving more money to already rich people does nothing to stimulate the economy, that is just a convenient myth and puts the con in conservative! The only way an economy can grow is by ensuring that people who are more likely to spend money can actually do that. The people who proportionately spend more of their income are the poor and the middle class. Austerity and trickle down economics ensures the reverse of this and are miserable failures as economic policy.

Bill O'Reilly has gone from Fox News following a string of sexual assault allegations. This is the same thing that got Roger Alies, although with Bill O'Reilly it was also because the advertisers were fleeing from his show. Despite the behaviour (and I say that because some cases were settled) his ratings didn't suffer but turns out all the ratings in the world mean nothing if you can't be monetized. Bill O'Reilly, you won't be missed for long, mainly because the bigoted 72 year olds that watch you will not be among the living for much longer.

War Hawk Media, North Korea

 
Orange Buffoon launched the biggest bomb possible without going nuclear. Firstly for people who claim focusing on American politics is pointless, well it actually affects other parts of the world too, so please, shut the fuck up. Now this is stupidity from all around here. As stated last time what really grows terrorism is killing random civilians. Logically using bigger bombs would kill more civilians, fuck more people off because you kill their family members which many had nothing to do with terrorism, so those left behind turn to terrorism, and on and on it goes. Of course Orange Buffoon is stupid, that's not really an riveting point. What is more interesting is the media and the relationship to a media obsessed President. Media largely praised Orange Buffoon for the strike last week. I would say Buffoon is watching closely so if they praised him he would be more likely to authorised more military action, and now we get to this week. This is a cycle that should be discussed. Of course it is just a theory, but the media should be cautious about praising a vein buffoon at times when he launch strikes.

Also North Korea and America are threatening each other. Both have narcissistic maniacs as leaders. I don't think North Korea will do anything, but who knows? A bomb by North Korea would trigger a war for sure, and they'll surely lose considering starved people are unable to fight and may not be willing. Kim Jong-un might be a maniac but I don't think he's also brain dead stupid as well like Orange Buffoon. Maybe I am wrong. It is convenient for the Buffoon Administration to keep hyping up threats so the media talks about that instead of his "many many" flaws. Let's hope this does not end badly.

Syria, Neil Gorsuch

 
Buffoon launched missiles on a Syrian air base after a chemical weapons attack . This may not be as bad as I thought. Turns out the Russians were warned about the attack prior and they warned the Syrians. The result was limited damaged. I only say this is good because if Russia gets fucked off somehow because they're closely allied with Syria it could lead to World War 3. Best case this is theater to show how tough Buffoon is. You could claim Buffoon warned Russia out of curiosity and if this is the case at least Syria knows there will be consequences for chemical weapons attacks. Of course I prefer they didn't bomb and do sanctions but if this doesn't go further, avoiding crisis with Russia is a good thing. I am definitely not a fan of the Russian government, I can't stand them and have repeatedly blasted the bastards. However the world doesn't need a war with them. We don't need Iraq 2.0 with Syria. ISIS is stronger because of the Iraq invasion, hell they didn't even exist until much after the Invasion. Side note the group that became Al Qaeda was given arms and money to fight the "godless communists" in Russia. This wasn't done on purpose, but they don't know what the fuck they're doing! They are known to arm groups that later turn against them. Today great ally Saudi Arabia is arming Al Qaeda. The US has been known to arm groups that FIGHT EACH OTHER! The West should leave the Middle East the fuck alone. By the way drones kill 90% innocent civilians and Buffoon has increased them by 400%. If America wants to send missiles to those who kill innocent civilians; it should start with the Pentagon!

Neil Gorsuch has been confirmed as the new Supreme Court Justice which basically replaces one right wing zealot with another. The real story here is Democrates are useless fuckwits. The Republicans had no problem taking away the filibuster, why didn't the Democrates? Because they're useless fuckwits. In their mild defense the Republicans didn't hold hearings. This should have been Obama's seat to fill; instead they got a social conservative fundamentalist. Nice one!

Health-care, Buffoon Relatives, Internet Privacy, YouTube

 
If Corporate Clinton won I predicted that the Republicans would stonewall and she wouldn't get anything done; this happened under Obama, and surprisingly is still happening under Trump. The Health-care act is now gone for now There are fractions of the Republican Party; namely the Koch Brothers Tea Party republicans who don't want compromise at all, and the more mainstream republicans that understand taking away health-care will be unpopular. There is a possibility this will happen on many major issues. I am not convinced that this will happen on taxes, but who knows.

Buffoon has officially given his daughter a job at the Oval Office, except she's not being paid as a way to go around rules and doesn't have to follow ethics rules. She says that she will voluntarily follow them, believe that at your own risk. Republicans would go ape shit if Chelsea Clinton did the same in the Clinton Administration. The son-in-law also has a paying job at the White House. On the bright side I believe that the two are less social conservative than standard republicans.

The republicans fucked over internet privacy by allowing ISPs to sell Americans' browsing history. Theoretically any company could purchase anyone's web browsing data. Of course the standard fear is porn sites, but hang on what if you frequent affair sites too? Now a corporation can know that. What if a person that knows you personally can get that information. It's not only the NSA that you should be worried about, but random corporations. This was always the case, but this makes it even more so. Some insecure websites also would put sensitive information like social security numbers in URLs and countless other things. This isn't acceptable. People have a right to privacy from the government and corporations. If people's browsing histories can be purchased I would like to see Buffoon's history and anti gay republicans. If the US government doesn't believe in privacy anymore let's see how much gay porn anti gay republicans are watching.

YouTube is further cracking down on controversial creators. In the latest attempt it is widened the net on what cannot be monetized and it is developing AI to detect swearing in videos. Last year they added terrorism as a banned subject. Apparently they will soon add religion which penalizes pro religion channels as well as channels who criticize religion. Of course ads are not the be all end all of revenue; there's donations; patron, and merchandise. However YouTube has been fucking the creators for years and there's probably a tipping point. Other platfors can emerge and probably will. MySpace was once very popular, also Yahoo! Now fuck all people go to those sites, particularly MySpace. YouTube should tread carefully.

Quick BS, Wiretapping, Health-care,CIA

 
I am creating a segment specifically for the Buffoon Administration. Quick BS. Issues that people are talking about but I don't find particularly relevant.

Quick BS. Buffoon says Obama wire tapped him. Bottom line he's the President, he can release such information. However there is no evidence because he got the information from right wing conspiracy websites. If I was him I would just manufacturer the evidence to prevent me from looking stupid. A warrant was issued to wiretap Buffoon Tower but was rejected. No evidence of actual wiretapping, bullshit claims from President Buffoon!

The Republican health-care plan has been released; basically it's the Affordable Care Act without the individual mandate, without the extra taxes on the rich plus some deregulation. On the positive side those with pre existing conditions are not denied coverage and under 26s can stay on their parents plan. Medicaid expansion also ends in 2020. The plan may not get passed because Right Wing Nut Jobs want to dismantle it more. The plan also has age based premiums, good for young people, not so good if you're old. If you lapse you pay a penalty to the insurance company instead of the government. Paul Ryan did a Powerpoint presentation complaining that healthy people pay for sick people. Yeah that's how insurance works, idiot! When you buy car insurance you don't assume you'll crash, but if you do you're covered. Healthy people would pay for years but if they get cancer in two decades they don't have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars. Paul Ryan is considered an intellect but in reality is a well presented moron.

Wikileaks has revealed that the CIA can use Smart TVs as listening devices and can hack into cars. I am not terribly surprised by this, I have voiced concern about the car issue before. As the world moves towards automated cars this should get attention. As much as we should advocate for privacy random corporations have all sorts of information on you. There is little you can do about it. At the same time, do you really need a Smart TV if privacy is important to you? There is a difference between letting things go, and actively giving them more information than necessary. I'm on the letting things go, but I don't want to expose myself to additional spying if I don't really need to. I am actually going to build myself a home automation system. Suddenly Infrared sounds like a good idea. Also if the CIA can hack and crash cars, so can other people. Manufacturers should be very careful about how they program cars. Sadly I don't think that a serious conversation is happening.

Sessions, Speech, Bush, Icahn

 
Jeff Sessions is the latest controversy in the Buffoon Administration. Just like Michael Flynn he lied about conversations he had with Russians; he lied in hearings. They have an Attorney General that has committed p; he should immediately resign. Of course that won't happen; they won't ask him to resign because they already had Michael Flynn going. That would be too many cabinet members going in a short amount of time. People may think they're incompetent and corrupt if he resigned. Because nobody would think that the Buffoon Administration is incompetent and corrupt otherwise!

Buffoon gave a joint address to Congress, didn't open his zip and piss on the floor so the media gave him a pass, some pundits even suggested that he may get a second term if he carries on like that. Such pundits are delusional. Buffoon is a buffoon and will continue to be so. When he isn't shitting himself, it's an exception and will continue to be an exception. The entire administration is shitting itself every few days. Hell, I don't think that he had a net favorable rating since launching his campaign. It's utterly delusional to suggest that if he starts speaking better things will go in his favour. Buffoon is going to be a buffoon. This is a desperate attempt for the media to be neutral, and it's pathetic! Objective journalism is different than neutral journalism. You could neutrally cover the flat earth theory by saying some think the earth is flat and some think it's round. Neutrally is bullshit. You can't be an effective watchdog if you insist on covering everything neutrally. In the same speech he said that he was going to record crimes by immigrants in a public database; something Hitler did to the Jews. Fuck your neutrality obsession.

George W Bush can fuck off too. Although I agree with him that the media should be tough on Trump. The media were largely lapdogs to the Bush Administration while they started two wars. The media did such a horrible job at informing the public that many Americans thought Saddam Hussein personally organized 9/11. If only the media was more cynical to George W Bush. He is a war criminal and those who want to glorify him can fuck off.

Carl Icahn is basically a consultant on deregulation issues which means that he doesn't need to divest since he is not officially at the Whitehouse. He also owns a majority stake in an oil refinery. Guess where this is going. It was announced that a new Executive Order will move the requirement of oil being 15% Ethanol from the refiner to the wholesaler, saving Icahn's company 200 million dollars. A government contractor is using his public policy influence to enrich himself. I expect this will be the first of many. Perhaps I'll call the administration Swamp Administration, or use this occasionally.

National Security Adviser, Labor Secretary, EPA Head, Literary

 
The Baffoon Administration is already falling apart. The National Security Adviser is gone after he was involved in conversations with Russia before he was confirmed. Before anyone celebrates, I think that he is going to be replaced by a more extreme person. Michael Flynn is now the shortest serving National Security Adviser in history. This also has fuelled the Russia talk surrounding the Buffoon Administration. My take is extremists on either side are idiots. If you say that there's nothing there you are just denying reality at this point. If you're obsessed with it at the expense of everything else including many possible impeachable offenses, you're in lala land.

One good thing was the Secretary of Labor pick wasn't confirmed; the former Carl's Jr boss that was in favour of automation and had questionable labor practices. It's hard to imagine a worst pick, but I'm sure that I will be surprised. He didn't have hearings because it got out that he hired an undocumented immigrant and beat his wife. It could be the undocumented immigrant; they practically have Orange Bill Cosby as president, though Buffoon's ex didn't go on Oprah to talk about it.

The new Environmental Protection Agency head got confirmed, he previously sued the Environmental Protection Agency. So expect that department to go to shit. This polices things like air pollution and lead levels. Lead levels are already a massive problem. 2,000 areas have lead levels higher than Flint. So things are bad but they're about to get worse.

More evidence that the Buffoon is barely literate; it was exposed that he likes reports one page with pictures. *facepalm* The only way it would be worse is they were giving him things to colour in! Though he probably doesn't have the attention span for that. You cannot get all the information that you need to be president in one page, this includes national security information. There is some chance America will be in danger due to his incompetence. If he got a phone call at 3AM he probably will be too busy tweeting to answer it.

Bannon, Literacy, Conway, Terrorism, Muslim ban

 
Steve Bannon is now on the US National Security Council. Who is Steve Bannon? A white supremist that ran alt right conspiracy website Britbert. You might remember him as Trump's campaign manager and top adviser. Apparently he is on the National Security Council now. Apparently Trump didn't know what he was signing when he signed the Executive Order/Action! So apparently the President of the US doesn't even read the Executive Orders/Actions he is signing and he has signed about 14 of them at this point. Either the President is too lazy to read, or is barely literate and doesn't know how to read complex material.

David Pakman now is convinced President Buffoon is barely literate and I can't say that I've seen any evidence proving him wrong. Apparently as a barely literate person you can run multi million dollar businesses. Obviously not very well as many went bankrupt. I think that he did it all through delegation. It's also possible that some people would scam a thick rich person; might explain some of his failures, but this is my own speculation. I would be very interested to know if he suffered any major trauma when he was 8 or 9. I know early trauma triggers Narcissistic Personality Disorder in people and the brain freezes, some people with the condition still remain highly intelligent, obviously he isn't one of them.

To add to her alternative facts Kellyanne Conway just made up a massacre. To justify the muslim Conway said there was a massacre in Atlanta. Here's the thing; it didn't actually happen. What she was referring to was there being two Iraqis that had fingerprints that were on some bombs back in Iraq. There was no evidence that they were planning something in America. They certainly didn't kill anybody in America. So week three and already the Orange Buffoon administration is making up massacres! What is week four? Claiming a country nuked Texas! Week 5 an alien invasion?

Orange Buffoon is claiming that the media is ignoring terrorist attacks. Of course the reality is the opposite. When Muslim terrorist attack happens it's covered for days. When a white Christian terrorist attack happens which by the way is more frequent the media is much less likely to call it terrorism. Instead they're crazy or lone wolves. Even if you disagree on that point it's crazy to suggest that the media doesn't cover terrorist attacks by Muslims.

The Muslim ban is now suspended, several judges have blocked it and this includes at the ninth circuit court. I was never convinced that it would pass the constitutional test. Then again I also was not convinced it would be attempted; I was wrong about that. In my defense President Buffoon is a pathological liar and constantly changes his mind including about the Muslim ban at one point. I hope that the ban on the muslim ban sticks.

Two signature Orange Buffon policies are stupid

 
Both the wall and ban on certain Muslim countries are stupid ideas. Net immigration from Mexico to the United States is close to zero or in the negatives by some estimates. Undocumented immigrates also generally help the economy by taking out more than they put in due to sales taxes. The wall wouldn't work anyway due to tunnels and many migrants just stay after flying. All the tariff on imports from Mexico will do is raising the cost for goods from Mexico that are brought in America. Mexico won't pay for the wall; Americans will.

The Muslim ban is even more senseless because none of the people from the countries on the list committed a terrorist attack on US soil. 15/19 hijackers from the 9/11 attacks were from Saudi Arabia, this country isn't on the list. I am sure that it is just a coin that the Orange Buffon registered 7 companies during the election campaign. President Buffon also has business with Qatar which isn't on the list; you should get a theme here. This ban is bullshit and is just designed to drum up hate. Several federal judges have ruled it unconstitutional but the Buffon Administration refuses to comply, this from the President who said that he was the law and order candidate. If your intention is to encourage fewer fundamentalists in the Muslim community the last thing you should do is isolate them, which will only encourage more hostility. Isolation didn't work for Cuba. Letting fundamentalists see an alternative culture has to be the way forward. Of course you should stop arming them and toppling their governments too.

These are stupid policies from a stupid president.

There are rumors that some of the GOP Congress are questioning his mental state. If just some feel like he's taking their away and ignoring institutions we could be looking at impeachments perhaps even sooner than I expected.

Orange Baffoon, Justice Democrats

 
I have made a decision, from now on I will refer to the President as Orange Baffon. The reason being he loves his name being mentioned. I predict that he will have the most mentions on the web. I will not add to that.

Orange Baffon issued a number of Executive Orders. Obama only issued about 40 in total, a low among recent presidents. President Baffon has done things like approved pipelines, he has a personal financial interest in at least one of them. He has also banned refugees from many muslim countries and also to build a wall. He has also cancelled the TPPA, he deserves temporary credit; I still say that he will do another trade deal of a similar nature. He's also going to redo NAFTA. What that means, I don't know. If you're being generous, you could say he'll improve trade laws but does tremendous damage elsewhere. I don't believe that he'll significantly improve trade laws, but also have no evidence at this time. So on this, he deserves credit temporarily at least. He also has ordered scientific bodies not to report science to the public and a freeze on EPA resources. So the environment will go to hell in the next few years.

Two talk shows I listen to; The Young Turks and Secular Talk are fed up with the Corporate Democrats and have formed a group to take back the party for the people. Their site is JusticeDemocrats.com. My feeling is if anybody can do it, these people can. Secular Talk nearly raised 100K for a studio, The Young Turks just raised 1.5 million for new reporters. They're new media powerhouses and frequently break new ground. T.Y.T has already formed Wolf PAC and successfully got resolutions passed to get money out of politics via a constitutional convention, they need 30 states to pass it, they have 6. Now they're targeting the candidates themselves. See what happens, maybe they will be successful. I have two criticisms. "People Democrats" sounds better. Some stupid people would dismiss Justice as Social Justice Warriors, this is bad for marketing, this will lead to hostility and dismissive behaviour. Personally I couldn't care less about labeling people SJWs. I'd sooner assess the issues I perceive to be fringe on a case by case basis and argue against them if necessary. Second criticism, this should have been done years ago. However I love the fact people that I admire are doing this!

Rick Perry, Betsy DeVoss, Projection, Inauguration

 
Rick Perry, once described as a dumb George W Bush, let that sink in. He now has had hearings to lead the Department Of Energy, a department he once famously said he wanted to eliminate, and couldn't remember the name, and apparently even didn't know what the department did. Turns out one of the department functions is maintaining the nuclear aerosol. Opps! Perry is a friend to big oil so forget about climate change progress. Our best hope is if China continues to take the lead. If I had Trump's ear, I'd just bait him to be competitive with China over this.

Betsy DeVoss does not believe in public education, so naturally has been appointed to Education Secretary. Her main qualifier is donating millions of dollars to the republican party. Her organization worked to promote charter schools and religious schools. Yesterday I discovered Corey Booker is supportive of the organization and gave a speech there. Thanks for that video Jimmy Dore. In her hearings she wouldn't say that public and charter schools should have equal accountability, didn't know the difference between growth vs proficiency and suggested that schools don't need to be gun free because of possible bear attacks which as far as I can tell don't actually happen. Now, the so called left Obama administration has continued the trend of charter schools despite 40% performing worse than public schools. DeVoss is going to make the problem worse with less accountability for the corporations that run the school. Obama did do a positive change to make testing less rigid, probably going to rolled back.

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has been accused of abusing fentanyl. This was not surprising to me at all. Humanity has a long history of taking whatever they think is bad about themselves and projecting it on to others. Many anti gay republicans get caught in gay affairs, in bathrooms or taking male companions on trips as "bag carriers". Recently it was revealed a founder of a Neo Nazi website married a Jew. In the majority of these cases the issue is self hatred rather than just hatred. People need to cut out hatred; both of themselves and others.

Trump's inauguration happened. Crowds were about half that of Obama's. The media is reporting Trump is insistent they are lying about the inauguration crowd numbers. Of course; he's not going to be less crazy now that he's President. The President is utterly disconnected from reality; buckle up.

Appointees, Corey Booker, Pissgate, People Power

 
Hearings began on the Trump cabinet appointees. Jeff Sessions the Attorney General pretended he was not racist or homophobic. The Exxon Mobile CEO Secretary of State pretended to care about climate change. Ben Carson was unable to rule out conflict of interest for Trump. Corey Booker pretended to give a fuck about anything other than his presidential ambitions in 2020. That is the gist of things.

Corey Booker also voted down an bill that would allow medications to be imported from Canada, effectively lowering the price. Progressives already see him as Hillary Clinton 2.0. If he was smart he would side with progressives in most cases instead he'll be view as a tool of corporations. He's fucking his chances.

I would cover pissgate, but I don't have time to cover bullshit.

The republicans wanted to gut the House Ethics Committee but the population pushed back hard with phone calls and their plans were stopped. The lesson here is people power does work on occasion provided it is effective. Although the move wouldn't have affected corporations so I guess it has limited power. You should absolutely use people power when you can get results. Also it is critical to use it on so-called left-wing governments like Obama and Bill Clinton. The people shouldn't go to sleep just because their men (or women) are in power. You should argueably fight harder when you encounter more receptive people.

Schumer, Pelosi, War Room

 
Chuck Schumer is an idiot; he leads the Democrates in the Senate and has said that the Republicans will pay a price for not voting on a Supreme Court justice "In time". "In time"? What the fuck? You just had an election. The time to make them pay was then. Instead you sat on your ass while Hillary Clinton painted Republicans as not as extreme as Donald Trump. Chuck is just as moronic and stupid as Hillary Clinton. He said that for every blue collar worker they shun; they'll pick up two Republican votes. How the fuck did that work out? Not well.

Nancy Pelosi is also an idiot because she said in an interview that the Republicans won't try to Repeal the Affordable Care Act. Apparently the Republicans trying to do just that 45 million times since its inception is no indication of anything. Republicans seem totally cool with the Affordable Care Act. What fucking fantasy world do the Democrates live in? Legislation has since been introduced, to repeal the Affordable Care Act, with the added bonus of defunding Planned Parenthood, because fuck women! Luckily this bonus is too extreme for some Republicans and it is unlikely to be accepted. Donald Trump has claimed he will keep the A.C.A. My prediction is they will probably try to gut the legislation, at minimum.

Meanwhile the Democrates have built a "War Room" for fighting Donald Trump filled with former Hillary campaign staffers, because they just did a bang up job during the election they just lost!

Israel, Russia, Lunatic

 
12 countries called out Israel for building settlements, the US didn't veto. I am pleased but it's too little to late from the Obama Administration. The government of Israel has proceeded to cut ties with many of the countries. OK, they are really only hurting themselves by doing that. The non veto and the resolution for that matter is largely symbolic; it doesn't do anyway and in 2 minutes Trump will take over. He and the Republicans will continue to kiss the ass of Israel's government. Some members of Trump's upcoming cabinet favor a one state solution; absurd position because the rest of the UN and the more progressive fractions of Israel will never agree to this. Even the right wing government of Israel is not outwardly for this position. Fantasy land in Trump's administration.

Obama has place new sanctions on Russia for alleged interference in the election. The CIA still has not released evidence. Whatever Obama. Trump will just come in and reverse it. Perhaps if Obama had not pushed the TPPA Hillary would of had a better shot. Also if the deal is really dead (I'm still skeptical) pushing the deal accomplished you nothing, and probably would have hurt Democrates in the long run. Congratulations on being stupid and fucking your own base. You can just go join Bill Clinton on being a poor excuse of a Democrate. Luckily for him he's still massively popular. By the way if the Republicans let him do a "Grand Bargain" that would have cut Social Security he probably wouldn't be as popular at this time. The next President will go in the opposite direction.

In random lunatic news Rodrigo Duterte who is President of the Philippines threatened to throw corrupt officials off a helicopter as he "has done before". He may be the only person in the world that makes Trump look sane and reasonable. This guy is an absolute lunatic and I hope that he is voted out promptly.

John Bolton, Russia, Clinton

 
John Bolton is a deplorable human being; strong supporter of the Iraq war, never met a war that he didn't like. For a long time it appeared that he would get the number two job at the State Department. New reports alleged that this is not happening because Trump doesn't like his Moustache. I feel like I am writing satire, but apparently this is a real thing that happened. Chris Christie's weight was also a factor is his VP pick; Christie didn't get the job. This information is from anonymous sources within the Trump team, but an open source John Miller said that presentation was very important.

The Russia ambassador to Turkey has been assassinated and from what I can gather it's because of Russia's support of the Syrian government. I strongly dislike the Russian leadership but would never wish something like this to happen. I was beginning to think that there may be some advantages to Trump and Putin being pows, then Putin announced that Russia will be expanding their nukes. Donald Trump announced the same. So we may have a nuclear arms race. This is a disaster. However in the short term it may be peaceful, that could be a good thing even though I predict Russia will take more territory.

Continuing to beat the Hillary Clinton dead horse. There was a story out saying that Clinton refused help from the Sanders camp and the words "Fucking Ignored" came up. Now OK if your position is Sanders lost the primary why would Clinton want help from losers? OK. Fair point but the fact is that Sanders won most of the open primaries, where independent voters could vote. This includes some states where Hillary Clinton lost in the general election. The Sanders camp were offering Clinton their strategies for the election. The theme of the Hillary Clinton campaign is arrogance. They just assumed all along that she will win. Didn't really work out, did it?

Hackings, Picks, Fake News

 
There are claims that Russia did hacking to influence the election. First allegation is the Clinton campaign chair Emais the second is the vote itself. Sources from the CIA is alleging Russia hacked the emails, if so they should release the evidence instead of allowing all sorts of conspiracies about whether the CIA is lying to take place. I don't see a reason why they would lie. I don't see the government going after Russia considering Trump and Putin are best friends. Unless it's a super long game by the Democrates for after Trump; I think that is far fetched. However many people are skeptical about these allegations, if the CIA has creditable proof they should release it otherwise people will remain skeptical. It is an open question on whether they hacked the vote itself; there was a story out today about the voting machine security checking agency being hacked into; this could have exposed security secrets. I know they at least attempted to hack voting machines in at least two states months before the election. At minimum they should do a full audit.

Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney are apparently not getting positions. Exxon Mobile CEO is in the running for Secretary of State. I actually like this apportionment; there's no better way of signaling that you're a tool for a corporations than appointing an oil CEO as Secretary of State. It is a giant fuck you to people that voted for Trump to drain the swamp. A percentage of them will not vote for him next time.

Hillary Clinton made a speech about how damaging fake news is. (ironic considering she voted for the war in Iraq based on fake news) She thinks the government should crack down on it. Yet it's Democrates that are always gleeful about doing interviews with Fox News. If you really want to address fake news the first step would be to stop treating Fox News as a legitimate news organization; beyond batshit crazy conspiracies like PizzaGate that conspiracy outlets push there was a shooting at Planned Parenthood because of fake news by Fox News which incorrectly claimed Planned Parenthood was selling aborted fetuses. If their solution is to have the government decide what is news that is nonsense; does Hillary Clinton really want the Donald Trump to have such powers? However i don't have a problem with liable laws if the published claim can be proved untrue. I would argue that it is perfectly acceptable for the government to very heavily fine a news organization for someone commiting a violent or terroristic act based on false information that they got from the organization. However be very careful how you verify the information is false. A government body alone is not enough.

Heads, Iran, Carrier, Apprentice

 
Ben Carson is up for the department of Housing and Urban Department. People find this bizarre considering he's a brain surgeon and has no experience in housing planning. Some believe he only got it because Trump thinks the word urban relates to black people. "Urban? Where's African-American? Tremendous!" Carson previously labelled the department a communist department; now he may lead it. I am thinking wouldn't Surgeon General as a position made more sense. Similarly Rick Perry is considered for the Department Of Energy; a department he said that he wanted to eliminate during his famous "Opps" line. The new proposed head of the "Department of Environmental" known by everyone other than Trump as the Environmental Protection Agency actually sued the E.P.A. numerous times, he also donated to the Trump campaign what a wild coincidence bahahaha. This is right wing 101: They assign people to departments that hate government; when the department turns to shit they turn around and say government does not work. This is how the game is played.

If you are afraid Donald Trump will tear up the Iran deal, it seems the Republicans have done it for him. House Republicans have voted to put sanctions on Iran; a violation of the deal. Why? I will just parrot Kyle from Secular Talk "HEAD ASS, HEAD! RIGHT UP THE ASS! HEAD ASS ASSY ASS ASS" I interpret this as the Republicans (or defence contractors) war with Iran. However there is one other explanation; they just hate Obama and want to destroy everything he has accomplished. Either way, I predict there will be a fresh push to go to war with Iran.

Trump did a deal with Carrier to keep jobs in America. A win for him on face value but under the surface he was only able to save 33% of the jobs they said they were sending to Mexico, and apparently some of them they never intended to ship out. He only did this through Corporate Welfare and promising to gut regulations. Additionally they're spending the Corporate Welfare on automation which means some of the jobs remaining will be lost anyway. A quick win for Trump but in reality the deal is a lemon.

Trump has reportedly signed on to be an Executive Producer of the Celebrity Apprentice. What the fuck? He has one job! Literally! He's the President of the United States! It is not appropriate to moonlight on a reality TV show Donald Trump! I wonder if he will be credited as President Trump. Not even Hillary Clinton would be arrogant enough to get money directly from a corporation; it would go through the Clinton Foundation. Could the corporation paying Trump get special favors? They're probably banking on it. Fuck you Hillary Clinton for losing to this baffoon! Does Trump really need the 50K per episode considering he's the president? The Clintons made tens of millions afterwards. I know he's old, but really? So called billionaire takes money for a reality TV show while President. You can't make this shit up! In other news he is supposed to get an intelligence briefing everyday but only wants them once per week. This guy is a total clown and probably will get impeached.

Administration of deplorables

 
The administration of deplorables continues; Sarah Palin is apparently going to lead the VA, though maybe she quits half way through like she did Governor. Mitt Romney is a possible Secretary of State; the same Mitt Romney that dedicated a speech to saying what a failure Donald Trump was. Trump's former campaign manager is not happy and has bashed Romney in the media since the announcement. The probable education secretary is a big fan of giving vouchers for private schools. This takes funds out of the public system. You may think that this is fine and good until they start reducing or eliminating vouchers. I've saved the worst to last; the probable Treasury Secretary foreclosed on homes that was occupied by old people. In one case the payment was off by 27 cents; I'm not making this up! He has worked for numerous banks; even started one. He also fund raised for Donald Trump so this appears to be a reward. Trump has drained the swamp, of water and found some sharks and snakes to put into his administration.

If you thought that since Trump won the election he wouldn't be tweeting offensive crap you are wrong. His explanation on why he lost the popular vote is that a few million illegal immigrants voted for Hillary. It turns out there is no creditable evidence to this and it is a conspiracy theory brought to you by InfoWars and Alex Jones! What is he going to Tweet about next? Chemtrials? 9/11 was an inside job? Lizard people? InfoWars and Fox News shouldn't be considered legitimate news sources for the president.

After a Fox News story; Trump also tweeted that flag burning should be illegal punished by lost of citizenship or jail. The courts have established for a long time that you can't take away citizenship as a form of punishment and flag burning is a form of constitutionally protected free speech. Hillary Clinton once proposed fines for flag burning. Both of them are wrong. I don't like flag burning as a form of protest but recognize they have a right to do it. I would rather figure out why they are doing it rather than getting hung up over the symbolism; they are just burning material when it comes down to it.

Jill Stien, Trump

 
Since the election Jil Stien has been busy. First she filed lawsuits alleging both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton broke campaign finance rules. Second she has raised money for some recounts in several key states. It probably won't change the electoral results but it appears more than the Clinton camp is doing. Other people have been trying to get the Electoral College representatives to go with the popular vote instead of the Electoral College result. Turns out the Electoral College results are not binding and can be changed willy nilly, who knew? If I was Clinton I would be lobbying hard for this as Clinton won the popular vote by over 2 million. If your position is Clinton lost the Electoral College and that's that, that is entirely fair and is probably the correct position. However if I was Clinton I would be like "Fuck it" and would certainly go for it.2 million votes is 2 million votes. Some people think that Al Gore didn't fight hard enough. Fighting doesn't seem like Democrate's strong point even when they're in office.

In flip flop number #31926 Donald Trump now thinks that climate change is real and that humans are causing it. This makes a change from his previous position of climate change being a hoax. The change is positive but I wonder if he will set a record for flip flops.

In other news Trump registered about 7 companies in Saudi Arabia just before the election. Apparently this is all legal. So basically don't expect any action from him on things like human rights abuses and funding 9/11 hijackers. The Clintons also had financial ties to Saudi Arabia, so it matters little who is president and more where the money comes from.

Upcoming administration is already a shitshow

 
The upcoming Trump Administration is already a shitshow, did you really expect any different? Trump met with Obama and didn't seem to understand what responsibilities the president has according to a video by David Pakman, he doesn't want to live in the white house. TheYoungTurks did a video outlining the different factions of the Trump Administration: corporatists, alt right nazi types, special interest donors and family. One of Trump's main advisers hates jews. The factions are fighting each other. If Trump had any sense he'd dump the neonazi types; but of course Trump is Trump so he made one his top adviser.

People say give him a chance. No! His chance was the campaign and he was massacring that every two weeks. OBAMA IS THE FOUNDER OF ISIS! FOUNDER FOUNDER FOUNDER! THAT WOMAN IS UGLY. Terrible campaign, didn't deserve to win. The only reason he won was he was running against Hillary Clinton. Ironically people thought Trump was a grand conspiracy to let Clinton win. If you wanted to give him a chance after his campaign. OK. His chance ends with appointing white supremacst, jew haters and people who want to throw Muslims in camps to his administration. Chance over! I predict this will be a deeply unpopular administration and will only last four years.

There are silver linings; he is not going ahead with the more extreme policies such as building a wall, mass deporting of illegal immigrants, and even repealling the Affordable Care Act. However his administration still has deplorable people in it and this should not be looked at lightly. There are also indication of Trump going back on his promise not to cut social security but George W Bush couldn't do it when he tried; the population may be even more hostile towards Trump if he tries, it probably won't be done under Trump in my opinion.

Donald Trump has settled his Trump University lawsuit for 15 million dollars. Basically a person with a history of being a fraudster is about to be president. He still has at least one sexual assault lawsuits to deal with. Crooked Hillary? Crooked both!

Clinton lost, Trump won

 
Donald Trump is the next president of the United States. Oh fuck. I could rant at voters and that could be coming, but first...

The reason this happened can be summed up in two words: Hillary Clinton! If you think otherwise you're living in a fucking fantasy world. She was a bad politician, people know her record, people hate her record, the name Clinton has been demonized for 30 years, people on the right hate her, people on the left dislike her; a dozen scandals, play for play allegations, email server, FBI investigation, unconvincing and politically arrogant. I am sure I have forgotten points.

There were polls about a year ago and 55% or more found her unfavourable, she only did slightly better than Donald fucking Trump! For people that ignored this fact YOU WERE FUCKING WRONG AND PEOPLE HATED YOUR CANDIDATE!

Oh hall the mighty Clinton Machine, that didn't win in 2008 and couldn't win in 2016. Now Chelsea Clinton is considering a senate run. For fuck sakes. The Clintons need to fuck off. I'm done with them, I'm done with their supporters. Clinton supporters are reality deniers and are just as misguided as republicans.

Clinton did not offer any hope. Her entire campaign can be summed up as "I'm not Donald Trump" and "I'm with her". That's such a shitty slogan by the way, Why the fuck wasn't it #ShesWithYou. Apparently the idiots at her campaign couldn't think of that, I know "I'm with her" has history, but it was politician centered rather than voter centered. People vote for REPRESENTATIVES, you're supposed to REPRESENT them, or at the very least act like you do! Demonizing Donald Trump by itself didn't work, she needed to get people excited, give them something to vote for, she never did that convincingly! Millennials just didn't believe her; she needed to do better. You don't do this by pissing on Bernie Sanders supporters, I admit eventually this did sink in, but it was months too late.

She got the endorsement of people like Henry Kissenger and other deplorables; namely neocons. If you are into compromise; fine, but understand there's a difference between compromise and blowing the other side kisses.

Martin O'Malley didn't have an email server in his house, neither did Bernie Sanders, neither did Corey Booker, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and countless others. Nobody made Hillary have an email server in her house. I don't give a fuck about Colin Powell; he did not have a FBI investigation just before an election. Brilliant idea for Obama to put a republican in charge of the FBI. Fan fucking tastic.

Hillary did things that she did not have to do and were politically dumb, and not just in the previous campaign cycle. In all likelihood this cost her the election.

90% of other Democrates didn't have as many problems as Hillary Clinton and would have wiped the floor with Donald Trump. Sure Republicans would have made up stuff, but no name is as damaged on the Democrate side than Clinton. It wouldn't have had such of an effect.

Clinton won because of racists they say. How the fuck did a black guy win twice then? You could make an argument for mobilization but Hillary was also rubbish at mobilization; particularly with young voters.

You couldn't have had Bernie Sanders as the nominee because of anti Jewish hate. OK and people who hate jews would have voted for Trump that even without a jew in the race was already retweeting neo nazi propaganda. Jew S A was a chant at Trump rallies. I am pretty fucking sure Donald Trump had the antisemite vote on lock down already.

People hate socialism they say. Possibly, but people voted for Obama because of change, people voted for Trump partly because of change. Hillary Clinton didn't offer change, Bernie Sanders would have. Donald Trump was against trade deals or so he says; Bill Clinton pushed through NAFTA. Donald Trump couldn't have said the same about Jane Sanders. Hillary Clinton already named Bill Clinton as a top economic adviser; Trump wouldn't have riled up the anti trade sentiment as effectively; Sanders also spoke against TPPA and NAFTA. Even though Hillary Clinton also was apparently anti TPPA; she just wasn't creditable.

I am not in the camp of Bernie Sanders would have definitely won like almost all progressive pundits I listen to. I think that the media would have massively sided with Trump and it would be a massive gamble. However I do think that he would have a decent shot. Doesn't matter now. Hillary Clinton was chosen and that was a mistake; irrelevant if you wanted Bernie; I certainly did. Again 90% of other Democrates would have crushed a monster like Donald Trump.

Just because you are fine with Hillary Clinton giving speeches to banks etc. doesn't mean everyone else is. A mistake in politics is assuming people feels the same way. I used to make that mistake; I learned that lesson after the 2011 election; I was even gullible enough to believe that the polls were massively wrong. The same people were still singing that conspiracy in 2014. This also that proves just because you are on the left does not mean you're not batshit crazy on some issues. Clinton supporters are the perfect example.

Obama won because he was a good actor, Hillary Clinton was not. As Cenk Uygur said "people wanted to throw a brick through the establishment window" The left didn't come with a convincing brick, it came with Corporate Clinton. People voted for Obama not knowing that he was a corporatist. He was the CHANGE candidate but that change was really code for making "republicans and democrates to get along". He failed miserably at this, just like Hillary Clinton would have. Republicans launched about a billion investigations about her and impeached her husband over a blow job; they weren't going to get along with President Clinton and it's utterly delusional to think otherwise.

Clinton didn't have to go out of her way to say she would work with Republicans. People just want a leader who will fight for them. Compromise is best left until after the election. Even her own strategy team and party insiders thought that being so buddy buddy with the republicans was a bad strategy and was going to hurt down ballot Democrates. Arrogant Clinton didn't listen, her strategy sucked. She is a terrible politician. If she said I have been defending the people against republicans for 30 years and know how to make them get things done; that would have been a better strategy.

Gary Johnson took more from Trump than Jill Stien took from Hillary. Millennial turnout was also disastrous. People won't vote for a candidate if they aren't inspired to do so. You can blame Millennials all day long but the fact is Hillary Clinton didn't inspire people to vote for her; it's a fucking big part of her job. If nobody comes to your concert, would you blame the people or the singer. Of course you would blame the singer.

I do think that it is very unfortunate that America won't have a woman president, they simply chose the wrong woman.

I don't care that she won the popular vote, if she was a competent politician she would have gained enough support in swing states to win the electoral college, she didn't because she is a deeply unliked candidate. A portion of her voters only voted for Clinton to prevent Trump from taking the White House.

Hillary Clinton lost, because Hillary Clinton was shit candidate; almost universally disliked and would have gotten slaughtered if she ran against a more likable republican. As stated in the beginning; you're living in your own fucking fantasy world if you think otherwise.

Finally just because I'm done with Clinton supporters doesn't mean we can't be friends. I do genuinely believe that her supporters are fucking idiots when it comes to the topic of Hillary Clinton specifically; however many people are smart in some areas and stupid in others; that is just how humans operate. I can put aside our differences, but if you're going to be Clinton apologists; I will view you as batshit insane on the subject and frankly have no interest in your defenses or excuses. Hillary Clinton was a shit candidate; end of story.

This is the longest I've ranted on any one subject; on to Donald Trump.

George W Bush on steroids was just elected. What an absolute clusterfuck. Even Hillary Clinton would be better than this baffoon, are you fucking shitting me America? What the fuckidy fuck fuck. Just because I hate Hillary Clinton doesn't mean that Donald Trump was an acceptable choice. I also hate Donald Trump. He bankrupted 6 companies including several casinos. The guy is incompetent and probably has some kind of self destructive tendencies going on. Also the guy is unpopular; does loathsome things, and a good case can be made that this trait is intentional; I know a person that I suspect of having Narcissistic Personality Disorder and it's clear that he deliberately fucks people off to make people hate him, and no I'm not talking about myself. Self destructive tendencies combined with this is a toxic combination. Now he has an army and nuclear codes; good luck!

I am not going to lecture you that he is racist; everyone else can do that; it is however concerning that his election will empower racists.

If you really thought that President Trump wasn't going to screw you, then you are the most gullible people on the planet; he's a pathological liar. I don't believe him when he says he'll stop outsourcing, he personally benefits from outsourcing. The only way he'll stop the TPPA is if he brings it back under a different name. Very likely he will just pass the TPPA. However the New Zealand Publicity Clown which other people call the Prime Minister says it's dead in the water, so I could be wrong.

Corporate America is lining up to work with President Trump as I predicted; I am only surprised this didn't happen much sooner. Donald Trump is the establishment with a clown mask.

In conclusion: Fuck Corporate Clinton! Fuck Donald Trump! America was presented with two hideous choices but chose the more hideous one. (kind of, Corporate Clinton won the popular vote) I'll be watching with morbid curiosity. I regretted not being politically aware in the George W Bush years. You have over delivered. I await either impeachment or a massive disaster/collapse. This does not end any other way.

Clinton losing ground, Third Parties

 
I called the election a few weeks ago but it turns out you can never count on Hillary Clinton to keep support. Since Comey's announcement the race has tightened significantly in swing states. A Trump has gone back to no being impossible. The upside to this is if Hillary wins by a smaller margin she can't shun progressives as much, so some people say. She will probably shun progressives either way. A close race against Donald Trump could make a primary of Hillary Clinton more likely. LBJ also stepped down. Neither case is terribly likely. Again, the United States will enter a right direction wing death spiral; especially if Hillary Clinton runs again.

I didn't find third party candidates terribly relevant to cover but I will do that now.

Garry Johnson has been dubbed by the media as being stupid and crazy, which is a very accurate assesssment of libertarians. He is known for not knowing what Aleppo was, not being able to name a world leader is that he likes, perhaps the second is the most concerning. He occasionally does eccentric things, sometimes it's funny, other times it's weird. Libertarians are right on social issues, wrong on economic issues. That's basically the gist of things.

Jill Stein I said I would vote for if I lived in America. This doesn't mean she is the perfect candidate. I think that her position on GMOs is downright anti-science. She panders to conspiracy theorists like anti vaxxers and 9/11 loons, but she does not believe in the conspiracy theories herself. Hillary Clinton however believes that Wall Street is best to tell her how to regulate it and pushed fracking around the world. Clinton supporters claiming that Jill Stein is crazy need to examine their own fucking candidate. At least I can admit my candidate is somewhat crazy and could happily vote for her knowing she will never get power. She is also closer to my beliefs than the other three batshit insane narsissists in the race. Hillary Clinton is so crazy she thinks that Republicans with her after they investigated her a billion times and impeached her husband over a blow job. I like her college proposal, before reactionary morons tell me it's too expensive the US just spent 1.5 trillion on fighter jets. That is just one wasteful spending by the US government; there is probably more. Student debt is about 200 billion less than the fighter jets. It's a terrible argument to keep students in debt just because that is what they agreed; what choice did they have if they wanted the education? I don't care if the other representatives wouldn't go for it; sometimes you have to negotiate and negotiating from a more radical position would make the final result more left-wing. Blue Dog Democrates like Obama and the Clintons negotiate from the center so the compromise position is more right leaning. Bad idea. Theory attributed to Kyle from Secular Talk.

Clinton, Alex Jones, Leaks

 
The media is reporting the FBI has reopened the case into Hillary Clinton's emails. When I called the election I did not expect this. Though apparently it is only 3 emails, not from her private server, so probably no big deal. However ultimately I think that Trump will fuck whatever opportunities he has up so I don't see this changing. By the way the way the number of times Hillary Clinton has been investigated by the FBI during an election campaign: 2. The number of times Bernie Sanders has been investigated by the FBI during an election campaign: 0. Just saying! 2020 is a different story; a Republican will probably win very easily if he's not an utter freak like Donald Trump. Of course assuming that Hillary Clinton is not impeached.

Speaking of utter freaks let's talk about Alex Jones. Hillary has been an attack ad out connecting Donald Trump to Alex Jones; she is right to do this. Alex Jones says 9/11 is a conspiracy, so is Sandy Hook, Newtown, almost everything else you can think of. The things he says are batshit crazy. BEING GAY IS A SPACE CULT TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE ASEXUAL! Oh you need serious help if you take this guy seriously. Trump going on the Alex Jones Show should have been bigger news at the time. Hillary should call him out for associating with an utter lunatic.

Wikileaks have released 21 batches of emails relating to Hillary Clinton. Why can't they find things on Donald Trump and release them like his taxes? This would give them the appearance of being neutral. The Clinton campaign were happy that Florida was a closed primary. It seems that they only want people voting if they vote their way. In other leaks Sweden were simultaneously lobbying the State Department under Hillary Clinton over doing business with Iran and donating to the Clinton Foundation. Hillary Clinton wanted to do a speech in Morocco shortly after her campaign launch but the other people in the campaign stopped her from doing so. This tells us that one of the most corrupt people in the Clinton campaign is Hillary Clinton herself. With her in charge cronyism will be alive and well.

Clinton, Trump, Final Debate, Saudi Arabia

 
More Clinton leaks; first there is email stating that she would be for the TPPA if things suddenly move on it. This is the least surprising thing ever. Hillary is pro TPPA and you would have to be extremely stupid to claim that she suddenly changed her mind on it after calling it the "gold standard" and lobbying for it 45 times. People say that Republicans must not be elected because this are all climate change deniers, that is true but Hillary Clinton gave a speech to trade unions saying that she will defend natural gas and fracking which also causes earthquakes. When she was Secretary Of State she was a big promoter of fracking; if nothing has changed this is a problem.

Melania Trump has defended her husband's pussy grabbing comments. Personally I think it would be a better strategy to say my husband is a giant asshole. What has the Trump campaign have to lose at this point? Maybe being honest where they can could work better.

Trump is now saying polls are rigged and the election will be rigged too. To me, clearly he can't handle the fact that he is losing and wants to blame something else. "It's not my fault, the system is rigged." No, Donald, you're a shit candidate.

He's such a shit candidate Roger Ailes has bailed calling him unfocused and debate preparation a waste of time. Casino Billionaire Sheldon Adelson has reportedly jumped ship too.

Also Trump thing thinks that Hillary Clinton was on drugs in the second debate. He was the one who was constantly sipping water and more importantly constantly sniffing in the second debate. Doing things associated with drug users plus the accusations makes me think this is a case of projection. Also doesn't he tweet at 3AM? Questionable sleeping patterns is another red flag. He claims to not take drugs including alcohol ever but it's not as if he isn't a total liar or anything.

In the final debate I thought that Trump undercut his message by saying that the US would have more free trade under his rule, he's been anti free trade agreement the entire campaign. Clinton pointed out the fact that Trump is apparently against outsourcing but makes his items overseas. She pointed out the fact that the Trump Tower in Navada was made from Chinese steel. Trump also interrupted with "wrong" and "I did not say that" which has all the validity of "I did not have sexual relations with that woman". He said that foreign governments were "very much smarter" than Obama, ironic choice of words. Hillary got asked about some of the revelations in Wikileaks and she just blamed Russia for leaking them, not a good strategy. They both attacked equally so Hillary won on debate skill. Hillary had a great line; while she was in the Situation Room with the Bin Laden raid Trump was filming Celebrity Apprentice.

In further Hillary Clinton leak news she admitted Saudi Arabia are responsible for promoting the one of the most extreme versions of Islam. I do think that it is good that she has this knowledge but the question is will she do anything about it. Maybe it would be like Wall Street and she will tell they to cut it out out, not very effective. Saudi Arabia is also a donor to the Clinton Foundation, I would be not confident that she will be strong enough. I think the only reasonable solution is to try and move off cheap oil and hit them with economic sanctions when the time is right. This would take at least two years and heavy subsidises to the electric car industry. This is not a perfect plan, but it is the best solution other than reigme change.

Saudi Arabia at least partially funded 9/11 according to internal US documents. Now the US is helping the Saudi side in Yemen. This has no logic. However one positive change is that US citizens can sue Saudi Arabia; Obama tried to veto the bill but he couldn't. One of the fears was it could open the US up to lawsuits however maybe they should just stop fucking up other countries because of oil interests.
