The latest drama with Buffoon Of Our Lives is he threatened to deport "dreamers" who are basically people that are undocumented immigrants but have lived in the US since they were very young. Then he didn't after a meeting with leaders from the Democrate side, Then they said a deal was made with the President. Then the President said no deal was made. The reality? He's a complete idiot with no clue what he's doing. There was a story out in which it says he listens to the last person in the room, this is completely consistent with this. The bottom line, this is a side show; it was always about making a deal with the Democrates and the business community is not going to allow a source of cheap labour to be deported. It's noteworthy that he wants to deal with the Democrates with his party can govern alone; but of course some Republicans don't want to govern and want to destroy the government. Obviously go further enough right your ideas are so unpopular you turn toxic and dysfunctional, I believe that I have said this before.

I prefer Days Of Our Lives, Friday's show ended with Wil coming back from the dead. Hell I'm not sure which is more ridiculous; DAYS or the fact Orange Buffoon is president.

Hllary Clinton, disasters

Hillary Clinton released a new book titled What happened? Well you lost to what should have been the easiest candidate to beat ever. That's what happened. Of course she blames Bernie and Russia etc blah blah blah. She claims her aides were making her pander to progressives and told her not to alienate them. First she didn't do a very good job. Second, yeah Hillary in order to win elections you need your side to vote for you. Your aides were right. If you were a little more convincing instead of going after Republicans (who by the way have hated you for years, really smart strategy that) perhaps you would have been president. Instead I'm reporting on how much of a moron Orange Buffoon is. Thank you Hillary, thank you very much! Now take your millions of dollars, and go hide in a cave. (or probably a mansion)

Two more disasters happened or are about to an earthquake in Mexico and hurricane Irma. They should name a hurricane after the president just to see his reaction. Harvey hit Texas and oil refineries, Irma will hit America's retirement village: Florida and old people watch the climate change denying channel Fox News. There is a sad irony to this, and it is important not to take glee in people's houses possibly being destroyed, not even Rush Limbaugh's right after he called Hurricanes hoaxes. I have nothing more to add as I commented on this last week. I'll just say this his is sadly ironic and urgent action needs to be taken.

Trans in military, Hurricane Harvey

Orange Buffoon banned trans people from the military. About a month ago he announced it via Twitter without any process behind it. A few weeks later he signed an executive order making it official. There's no schedule for removing existing trans people but it will probably be done. Buffoon cited health care costs as the reason but the military spends three times more on Viagra. Also we have covered that the Pentagon wastes tens of billions per year, they can't even account for some of the money. Orange Buffoon is simply being horrible, there is no valid reason to do this. Additionally it costs $96,000 to train and recruit a new soldier, there is 10,000 trans people in the army, do the math on that. Finally when he was called to fight in Vietnam he didn't go and went to sex parties instead, he called getting STDs his own personal Vietnam, he has absolutely no creditability when It comes to who is serving.

Hurricane Harvey has practically destroyed parts of Texas. The scenes there have been not been pretty, at least 15 people died, entire communities destroyed. I knew instinctively that sending the president to the area was a very bad idea, he did his usual buffoonish thing. Progressives are talking about climate change. The time for action on that was 20 years ago. However while future actions will not prevent the probable countless devastating storms coming it will stop a bad situation from becoming even worse. The world needs to take action on this. Luckily most of the world are not climate change deniers like the US Republicans and are taking this seriously. However we need to consider climate change a current threat and be concerned about what comes next. Probably best to move to the middle of the land unless the area get things like tornadoes or earthquakes.

The absurdity of the Afghanistan war

The US is putting more troops in Afghanistan, 15,000 in total. At one time there was over 100,000. If they can't win with that, why would they be able to win with a fraction of that? The Afghanistan war is a lost cause, they should abort and should have aborted a decade ago. I worked out the Afghanistan war has been going on half my life. 16 years. You know what they say 17th years the charm. The best solution would be to work with the Taliban to stabilized the country; trying to defeat them hasn't worked. Actually I heard an amazing story this week that the Taliban did actually surrender in 2001 but the Bush Administration was too incompetent to register it. The surrender ceased when the US wouldn't stop attacking. This sounded unbelievable, until I remembered that they had Osama Bin Laden cornered in 2001 but Donald Rumsfield didn't send in the troops and he got away. If all this is true you are right to question whether this utter incompetence was deliberate or whether the Bush Administration had shit for brains. Remember also that George W Bush was also warned about a possible terrorist attack several months before 9/11 on vacation and told the people to go home. When right wingers get involved in foreign policy, they tend to fuck it up. To an extent this also includes Obama, but at least he was competent enough to get Bin Laden. I personally just generally assume people in power are incompetent at their job. Really, is there any clearer proof than the US election last year? In conclusion I regret not buying stocks in defense contractors after the election, the war machine rolls on.

4 more years, they'll get a gold watch. - Jimmy Dore

Nazis, Steve Bannon

So Orange Buffoon can't adequately call out neo nazis and white supremacists. Everyone else is outraged; that's not interesting. At the beginning of the presidency I said that I believe that he had a self destructive trait in his personally. Nothing has proven me wrong. The obsession he has with calling both sides even is part of his self destructive personality. Any competent person and someone who isn't self destructive would have no problem adequately calling out white supremacists and neo nazis. It's a problem for him because he's both incompetent and self destructive. Yes it's true that the now fired Steve Bannon may have had a hand in his response, but the fact is Buffoon could not do the absolute minimum the situation required; this shows utter incompetence.

Bannon has been fired from the whitehouse; finally some good news. Steve recently did an interview where he claimed to be in charged. I don't know if he was fired because of that, or the obvious fact that he was a horrible strategist that lead the administration down a shit hole. Whatever the reason; this is good news. The question is if a new strategist can turn this administration around. I am firmly in the no camp. Again Buffoon seems entirely self destructive. With the Russia investigation and now probable trolling from Bannon's deplorable propaganda outlet, this will not get better. He openly fights with morning TV show hosts, he will probably do the same with Bannon. If a fire requires water to be put out he's there pouring petrol all over it. He has no ability to defuse situations; he only makes them worse.

With Bannon gone Buffoon really has very limited friends. The people who work for him don't respect him and are constantly leaking how incompetent he is. He has fucked off both the Senate and House leaders, the Attorney General and probably countless others. Business leaders are fleeing; the manufacturing council and strategic policy forum both have shut down. Once you lose rich people and the establishment, you're on borrowed time. Especially if you're not popular. I said from the beginning that he will be impeached or resign. The ducks are almost in a row.

North Korea, Charlottesville

Orange Buffoon threatened North Korea with "Fire and fury like the world has never seen". Everybody has blown this out of proportion. Let me explain. North Korea has a history of empty threats. When they threaten places like Guam we shouldn't take them seriously; other presidents didn't and nothing happened. They do this to make noise and for their own propaganda purposes. I have maintained from the beginning that they are very unlikely to attack, hopefully they know if they do it will be game over for the government. The difference today is we should probably ignore the US president too. EVERYTHING WITH THE PRESIDENT HAS TO BE THE BIGGEST EVER! He has size issues, we get it. Taking him at face value is a mistake. He talks shit the majority of the time. Other more rational people at the whitehouse (as rational as right wingers can be) say there is no threat and they are not going in. Unless this changes there is no need to panic.

Charlottesville, tragedy occurred out of a confederate statue removal protest. A helicopter crash, very unfortunate. One piece of violence that happened and was no accident was a radical right winger trying to run over counter protesters. Violence for a political or ideological cause has a name: terrorism. Most groups have their fundamentalists and moderates, not just muslims. I don't want to dwell on this point, I am sure other pundits are not shutting up about this. All I will stress is that it is important to try and encourage moderation in religious ideologies no matter if it is Muslim, Christian, or something else. You don't encourage moderation by calling them all terrorists, or calling them stupid. If you still do this; you are part of the problem.

The Confederation wanted to keep slavery. If you are claiming heritage for the reasons to keep the statutes up please know what your heritage is. There is a case to made for ignorance. African Americans simply don't want statutes of people up that were hell bent on keeping their race as slaves. This is really what this issue boils down to. If you really feel strongly about either side a sensible course of action would be petitioning the government. If you truly live in a democracy, the majority should rule. Personally I am not a fan of tradition for tradition sake (actually I really have no time for people that think tradition should dictate our lives, assess ideas on merit) so therefore I would probably side with African Americans.

Buffoon, Diana

Buffoon Of Our Lives update
Shaun Spicer OUT after objecting to Buffoon hiring Anthony Scaramucci
Anthony Scaramucci is IN, WRONG GONE! He only lasted ten days. Only purpose appeared to fire Ryan Prebis.
Ryan Prebis, obviously is gone. He was the Chief Of Staff. He was replaced by a General. Ryan came from the RNC and was seen as an more establishment figure.
Scaramucci was the shortest serving Communication Director in history. There's speculation that Buffoon thought he was stealing the limelight and that is why he was fired. However Scaramucci also said "I am not like Steve Bannon, I don't try to suck my own cock" I suspect saying that about a top adviser to Buffoon was a mistake. Scaramucci was also critical of Buffoon in now deleted tweets. Whoever was behind the firing wouldn't have had a tough time convincing Orange Buffoon to do it.

Meanwhile a Grand Jury has been established for the Buffoon/Russia investigation. This means that it isn't going away anytime soon and they can uncover more evidence with this procedure. They have hired a lawyer that specializes in money laundering, bribery and corruption. You don't leave your well paid private sector job for something irrelevant. Tick tock, tick tock.

Buffoon's approval is now down to 33%, perfect time to go on a 17 day vacation. What's the difference? He isn't accomplishing much on the job anyway. According to a magazine he called the Whitehouse a dump. Sounds like he doesn't want to be president, lucky for him he probably will be removed from office eventually.

It is so bad that psychologists have lifted their own gag rule which prevented psychologists from commenting on people that they haven't examined. The fact that Orange Buffoon may have a personality disorder isn't revolutionary information but it is quite telling that psychologists feel so strongly they modified their own ethics rules.

There was a news alert on TV2 about Princess Diana's love life. What the fuck? Firstly she has been dead for 20 years. This is not news! It reminds me of a headline on CNN "Breaking news: The Titanic sunk 100 years ago today". I don't care about Diana's love life. I can think of nothing that is less relevant. I hate stories about Diana, it was the three years of constant coverage after her death that will forever haunt me. I was young, I didn't know her. It was just 3 years of the media going on about someone I had no interest in, and still have no interest in. Are people really interested in her love life at this point? Does it really deserve a TV news alert? There seems to be a resurgence of stories about her. When will it end? Seriously, I'm asking! Some want her to be left alone; she was harassed by the media during her life. Nothing has changed. The media needs to stop its unhealthy obsession with this woman. I really don't think she would want to be used for ratings and to sell papers. Either way, Diana is long gone, there doesn't need to be another news story about her, ever. Yes, I am triggered by stories of Diana. The outright excessive media coverage when she died will forever haunt me and probably has something to do with why I can't stand news media.

Health-care, Linkin Park

I avoided talking about health care updates because I just need assumed the bill would die. The bill is now dead. How brilliant am I? With the Democrates shift to the right this allowed the Republicans to be populated by fringe right wingers. Their ideas are unpopular and incompatible with the moderates in swing states. They're pretty much the headless chicken party; flapping around accomplishing nothing. The Koch Brothers are also to blame for funding the Tea Party in 2010. They may be able to pass tax reform but much else.

Chester Bennington is dead at 41. I am just covering this because Linkin Park were my favourite rock band, particularly their earlier stuff. 41 is too young to die. He took his own life, I don't know if I have already said this but famous people could do with mental health treatment rather than yes men. This is the reason I say being famous can decrease your life span. I am grateful to have seen Linkin Park in 2013, I do regret being preoccupied with trying to keep my ex. This is also why I say see singers while you can. You never know when they might go. He had some other problems such as child abuse and substance abuse. Fame didn't help at the end of the day. You can be a famous rock star, but in the end it doesn't even matter.

Eric met with foreigners regarding the campaign

So it turns out Eric Buffoon met with someone associated with Russia to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. I don't care what you're personal feelings are, the fact is this is illegal. I don't care about right wingers; I expect them to live in lala land. I have said before that there are a bunch of left wingers that claim that there's nothing to the russia story including people I frequently watch. It is getting to the point of denialism at this point. The mental gymnastics are becoming absurd. Here's an idea: If you don't want to talk about Russia, don't talk about russia. Left-wing russia gate truthers are sounding like republicans. Apparently most people have particular issues that they go crazy on.

The meeting was illegal, foreign entities are not allowed to give anything of value to the campaign. The fact that nothing was given is not relevant legally. Sting operations work for this reason. If he showed intent; he can theoretically be prosecuted. Saying "I love it" in response to someone saying they have damaging information on Hillary Clinton shows intent. I say theoretically be prosecuted because his father is the president. The entire Buffoon ship would need to sink before that happens, could be possible though!

People are calling Eric the equivalent of the Godfather's stupid son that brings everything down. I have a problem with this. I don't think there's a stupid son in comparison to Buffoon Senior; there may be a slightly more stupid son. Orange Buffoon is a low bar for intelligence. A little person couldn't limbo under it. Einstein said stupidity was infinite, he's probably right.

Fatal Fame Quest

This is a story that I meant to cover last week but ended up just ranting instead.

There was a couple that wanted YouTube fame. They did a stunt with a gun, now one is dead. Firstly this isn't abnormal; one of my stand up jokes was about the stupid challenges on YouTube including the Fire Challenge; setting yourself on fire, because, I don't fucking know why masses of people did that. So this is not the first dangerous stunt people did for internet fame and it won't be the last. Society glorifies fame. Let me tell you something: it isn't worth it. Get past the glorification and many famous people seem to be miserable. Kloe Kardashian compared it to be being in a wheelchair, I think it was Kloe, I don't care. Justin Bieber is a miserable fucker. Michael Jackson, errrrrrr do I really need to continue with explaining how he was messed up. Whitney Huston had problems, till death to them part, Amy Whinehouse too. Sure, I am cherry picking celebrities. However it's no coincidence that young stars frequently go off the rails; Linsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Amanda Bynes. There is no need to chase fame; it is not that great. You give up your privacy by having the paparazzi on you 24/7. A new problem is having your nudes leaks, if you aren't famous there's no incentive to violate your privacy. You can't go out in public without being annoyed. You get strange people obsessed with you and people criticize your every move. (I got pissy when someone said that they preferred my hair in a certain style, FUCK YOU I don't give a fuck about what someone on the other side the world thinks about my physical appearance) Similarly lottery winners have their lives screwed up too, but that's going on a tangent. Society glorifies fame. YouTube makes it easier than ever before to be famous. People will therefore try to get famous through any means possible. We need to stop glorifying fame and being obsessed with personalities. This probably won't happen anytime soon, so people dying caused by their need for fame is going to keep happening.

Buffoon attacks morning show host

Ugh time for another episodes of Buffoon of our lives. I am as frustrated with this as with Days Of Our Lives; the young guys get shirtless fuck all.

The latest in this Orange Buffoon soap opera is he now insults morning show host (Mika from Morning Joe) on Twitter. Do you know what? FUCK YOU! You're the president of the United States and THIS is what you spend your time on? Oh a woman on TV called my hands small I'm going to throw a tantrom. Utterly fucking pathetic! And I thought I have wasted opportunities in my life, this man is the president of the US and too stupid to do anything with it. My dog could do a better job, AND SHE'S DEAD! Progressives are morons too, I am guessing that it wouldn't be too hard to completely hijack the White House. USE SHINY OBJECTS FOR FUCK SAKES. Advocate for single payer health-care and we'll give you a gold star, that would probably work! At minimum he should be bombarded with signs CHINA IS WINNING WITH RENEWABLE ENERGY, that may work. Again, the most powerful man on earth, tweets about a breakfast TV show host. The man is a fucking idiot.

There's also blackmail allegations related to the relationship of Joe and Mika. Apparently they were told to stop covering Buffoon negatively or continue to be harassed by the National Inquirer. If this is true they should immediately press charges instead of doing story time on the TV. Whether this is real, I don't know, this is the stuff of dictators if true. It's possible they are making up this scandal and Buffoon is in on it. That is my own conspiracy theory. Let's assume that I am incorrect, they should provide further proof! Maybe there's further details about their personal lives and they don't want to rock the boat further. Never be famous! Why would you invite a spotlight?

Losers, Wages, Nuts, Tower

The Democrates lost another special election, four for four. I am basically only covering this because the guy was kind of cute. The race made national headlines after the his Republican opponent said that she "doesn't support a liveable wage". The Georgian district elected that person. The Democrates couldn't beat that person and had more money. Pathetic. He was a milktoast centrist, used the same arguments against the republican that the republicans in the primary did. Genius. Use the arguments used by people that already lost to her. That's the Clinton campaign reincarnated. Loser. Pathetic. Sad!

Inequality in the USA has gotten so bad that you can work full time and not afford a two bedroom apartment without government assistance. Aren't conservatives meant to be against government assistance? A living wage is actually good for the economy because it means that more money is flowing throw the system, and very importantly the wage increased more than makes up for the slightly higher priced goodsthere is no reason not to do it, and considering 40 years of neoliberalism has shifted the tax burden increasingly from the rich to the poor it's regular citizens that fund this absurd system.

A person shot at some congressman a few weeks ago. Some people are blaming Bernie Sanders. Yes the politician that constantly advocates for peace and justice is responsible for some lone nut. No. If he used violent words and imagery perhaps you have a point. Every group has their crazies whether left-wing, right-wing or muslims. By the way muslim extremists are really just right wing extremists under a different religion. There is also more christian right-wing extremists attacks in the US than muslim fundamentalist attacks. For every nut on the left, you can probably find five on the right; they are the ones obsessed about the second amendment and claiming tyranny. You obviously shouldn't shoot at people to solve problems. Unfortunately a small percentage of any group will do that, maybe not give them weapons to begin with?

A tower in London caught fire killing 79 people. Tragic but avoidable. The company brought flammable materials costing $5000 less. If this decision was not made those lives probably wouldn't have been lost. The Conservative government once congratulated themselves on lessening fire regulations. The lessons here are skyscrapers need adequate fire protections and they need to be enforced. You can't rely on corporations to have protections all by themselves. It's neoliberalism, it's free market and it's a fantasy. Protections must be enforced.

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 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.
