#PresidentChump claimed that he was worried about corruption in Ukraine.

But he didn’t say “I need you to do the right thing.”

He said, “I would like you to do us a favor though”. He asked for corruption.

Prevent Abuse by the Senate Majority Leader

Mitch McConnell abuses his position as the Majority Leader of the Senate.

Mitch McConnell has declared himself to be the Senate’s Grim Reaper, a position not forseen in the Constitution.

He has declared that the Senate shall not even consider any bill that the President wouldn’t sign, thereby rendering empty the Constitution’s provision for Congress to overturn a Presidential veto – a central ingredient of the Constitution’s mandating of checks and balances, including Comgressional oversight of the Executive.

McConnell has unilaterally declared that no nomination by a President will be considered during that President’s last year, if that President was from the opposing party. He sneered that no such restriction would apply to a similar nomination by a President belonging to McConnell’s own party.

McConnell has obstructed efforts to protect the integrity of American elections.

McConnell has obstructed efforts to prevent sensible limitations on access to weapons that enable mass killings, despite the large majority of Americans that now favor such limitations.

The Senate Majority leader has too much power.

The writers of the Constitution never foresaw the possibility of this type of abuse of power by a Senator, and certainly wouldn’t have wanted it to occur.

Either the rules of the Senate must be changed to prevent this sort of abuse, or the Constitution must be amended to do so.

The rule should be that within 10 days of receiving a bill passed by the House or a nomination from the President, the whole availible body of the Senate shall vote on whether to have debates and a vote to approve or to disapprove the bill from the House, or the nomination by the President. This first vote does not require the Senators to have studied the prospective bill or candidate: they need only to have a rough sense of what the bill is about, or a rough sense of the nominee’s background. If at least 40% of the Senate votes to debate and then vote upon the House bill or on the Presidential nomination, the debate and the legally-binding vote shall occur in a timely fashion. Those who voted for the debate and the binding vote shall schedule the date for the binding vote, allowing adequate time for Senators to scrutinize the bill or to interview the candidate. The Majority Leader of the Senate shall have no special role in setting that date, and may participate in setting that date only if having voted for the debate and binding vote to occur.

Most of the procedures in a legislative body should be independent of which party currently dominates the membership of that body. Of course the outcomes of many of votes will be determined by the majority. But not all outcomes will ne determined that way: legislators have the right to not always vote the party line. McConnell’s rule takes away some of that freedom of conscience, and assumes that all voting will be by unchanging blocks.

Mitch McConnell has chosen to become one of the major villains in American history.

Here are some tweets by thepoliblog. Some were posted on Trump’s and on McConnell’s government twitter pages, where, as comments by the public about official business, they cannot be removed, so Trump and Trump’s fans, or McConnell and McConnell’s fans, are confronted by them, again and again. Some of the tweets are directed to Devin Nunes and to Rupert Murdoch.
Tweet to counter the twits.
.
.
Contrary to his boasts, #PresidentChump was a failure in business.
After his many bankruptcies, most banks refused to lend to him.
He was reduced to marketing his name instead of real estate, and to strutting around on TV.
.
Chump is like the Music Man, but meaner.
.
.
When most banks decided to stop lending to #DonnyTheChump,
his main source of funds became Putin’s henchmen, and DeutscheBank.
That is probably one reason why #PresidentChump hides his tax returns.
It also explains his loyalty to Putin.
#PresidentChump is Putin’s chihuahua.
.
.
#PresidentChump’s inflated claims of wealth are designed to support his false
claim of success in business.
They are like con-man Bernie Madoff’s claims to his actual and potential investors.
This is one of the reasons why Chump wants to hide his tax forms.
.
If #PresidentChump’s claims of wealth were true, he could prove his claims by showing his tax forms, as previous Presidential candidates and Presidents have done.

Recent newspaper articles wonder whether a woman can be elected President.
We already have proof that a woman can be.

President John Barron?
John Barron, John Baron, and John Miller are names that #PresidentChump
used in phone calls to the New York Times, while attempting to CREATE fake news.
He pretended to be calling with favorable insider information about Donald Trump.
.
.
#PresidentChump is NOT the leader of the free world.
He doesn’t even LIKE free societies.
He prefers authoritarian societies: societies that are
like the Trump Organization writ large.
.
.
#PresidentChump envies heads of state who command goons.
You can see that at his rallies,
and in his approval of the atrocities by Putin, bin Salman, Kim, Duterte, and on and on, ad nauseum.
.
.
#PresidentChump sneered at John McCain’s academic record.
Them why does #Chump use lawyers to prevent the release of his OWN academic records? You already know the answer.
.
.
Why is #PresidentChump’s self-esteem so fragile?
His father bullied him, and his alcoholic drug-addicted older brother committed suicide.
.
.
There is nothing abnormal about #PresidentChump’s frantic bleats of “No collusion”.
The guilty deny guilt. Chump’s panic and frenzy give him away.
.
.
Make America Great Again, eh?
No, #PresidentChump made America SECOND-RATE again.
.
.
#PresidentChump, how does it feel to be one of the 3 worst Presidents
in American history, and, among those 3, to be one of the most harmful 2 ?
.
.
#PresidentChump, how does it feel to be the most illiterate President in American history?
You boasted that you didn’t read your textbooks in school because you didn’t need to.
That was a lie. You didn’t read them, because you couldn’t.
.
.
His only guiding principle: Trump First!
His only goal: Make Trump Great Again! Lets hear it: MTGA!
.
.
#PresidentChump is an excrementalist: an excremental political thinker, an excremental economist, an excremental human being, and an excremental businessman.
.
.
#PresidentChump cannot read Mueller’s report, because he cannot read.
Chump tries to hide the fact that he is nearly illiterate.
.
.
#PresidentChump, the Creepy Clown in the White House,
deserves to be impeached and convicted.
.
But unpatriotic Mitch McConnell would prevent conviction by the Senate, which President Chump would then claim as exoneration.
.
Nancy Pelosi is right. Hold hearings instead, to obtain evidence for the 2020 election.
.
.
Trumpist agent Mitch McConnell blocks Constitutionally mandated Congressional oversight.
He has a conflict of interest: his wife is in #PresidentChump’s cabinet.
.
.
#MBS claimed that his team merely wanted to bring Jamal #Khashoggi
back to Saudi Arabia, and that Khashoggi’s death was unintentional.
Why then did MBS’s team bring a bone saw to their encounter with Khashoggi?
.
#PresidentChump defends MBS: pretended heel spurs defend a bone saw.
.
.
After January 20, 2021, Canada, Mexico, Britain, Ireland, the EU, Australia and other
non-authoritarian countries can declare #PresidentChump (#Trump) to be persona non grata, and bar him from polluting their countries by his presence.
.
.
#PresidentChump demanded that Obama display his birth certificate.
With far more justification, we demand to see X-rays of
President Chump’s heel spurs. Heel spurs don’t go away by themselves.
If they are no longer there, show us documentation of the operation that removed them.
.
.
If what E. Jean Carroll says is true, #PresidentChump attempted rape.
He should be tried. If convicted, he should go to jail,
and should be required to register as a sex offender.
.
.
#PresidentChump claims the he didn’t rape E. Jean Carroll because
she “is not my type”.
Pause for a moment, to digest what Chump’s statement says about his character.
.
.
#PresidentChump claims that he didn’t rape E. Jean Carroll because
“she’s not my type”. But Lady Liberty is not his type either,
and that hasn’t prevented his repeated attempts the penetrate her.

President Chump (Drawing from Dover Pictura, Fantasy Vector Designs, copyright 2010 by Dover Publications, Inc., used with permission.)

 

A Federal court recognized that President Chump often uses his tweets for official statements, and therefore ruled that because of the First Amendment to the Constitution, President Chump cannot block comments by the public on his twitter page.

The ruling is described in an article by Larry Neumeister (Associated Press), and in an article by Ann E. Marimow (Washington Post).

This ruling provides a precious channel for the public to:

refute President Chump’s lies and ignorant assertions, almost immediately after the twit has tweeted them, and before they can gain traction;

– do so where Chump’s followers cannot avoid seeing the evidence that Chump is wrong;

provide ammunition that others can use in political and legal actions.


Here are examples of comments to Chump’s tweets that thepoliblog – thanks to the court’s ruling – has been able to post on Chump’s twitter time-line (@realDonaldTrump):

@realDonaldTrump, #PresidentChump, are you proud of what you tried to do to Vera Coking? (See here  and here ) And YOU call OTHER people NASTY!

Horrible abuses? #PresidentChump, you claim that you didn’t rape E. Jean Carroll because “she’s not my type”. Look at the photo in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E._Jean_Carroll.  In the mid-1990s she WAS your type. Lyin’ Donald Trump.

#PresidentChump, you claim that you didn’t rape E. Jean Carroll in the mid-1990s.
Your denial is less convincing now that you are doing the same thing to Lady Liberty.

The United States WAS the greatest and most powerful nation on Earth before
you became #PresidentChump. You didn’t Make America Great Again,
you Made America Second Rate Again.

The most harmful immigrants so far have been the ancestors of
#PresidentChump, and Rupert Murdoch.

as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” How young did you know about?


thepoliblog is not the only person who uses the term President Chump.
While using twitter, you can find the many tweets that use that term by searching for that term, and also by searching for #PresidentChump.

If you, too, adopt this term, you will help to turn it into a meme that will weaken Chump’s ability to damage the United States and other open, humane societies.

Mitch McConnell is Not a Patriotic American

Any patriotic American would want to expose foreign interference in American elections, and would want to do everything possible to defend against future interference.

Mitch McConnell does the opposite.

It follows, by air-tight logic, that Mitch McConnell is not a patriotic American.

Mitch McConnell is instead like Devin Nunes. Mitch McConnell is like Jim Jordan. Each of them tries to obstruct efforts to characterize and to defend against Putin’s interference in American elections. Hence none of them are patriotic Americans.


It is hypocritical of Mitch McConnell to participate in the celebration of the 4th of July.

If he were honest, Mitch McConnell would renounce his American citizenship, and would become a citizen of Russia.

But Mitch McConnell is not honest.

Do the citizens of Kentucky realize what they have done?

Healthcare For All versus Medicare for All

Tags: , , ,

 

U.S. Air Force surgeons Dr. Patrick Miller (left), Dr. Michael Hughes (right), and surgical technician SrA Ray Wilson from the 379th Expeditionary Medical Squadron, repair the ruptured achilles tendon of a servicemember on March 11, 2003. The doctors are performing this surgey at a field hospital in a forward-deployed location.

For people who are currently satisfied with their health insurance, forcing them to replace their insurance by Medicare would be a coercive version of Health Care For All. A non-coercive Health Care For All would include the option of private insurance.

People who are currently satisfied with their health insurance are numerous, and a larger percentage of them vote than do those in the general population.

For this large bloc of people, insisting upon Medicare For All would be a show-stopper, in the sense that these people (myself included) cannot vote for any candidate who insists on Medicare For All, no matter how many other good positions are espoused by that candidate.

By insisting upon Medicare For All, a candidate needlessly loses a very significant number of votes.

Scary Clown, photographed by Graeme Maclean in 2005.

The skillfull, aristrocratic hippie poet Lord Byron was described as being “mad, bad, and dangerous to know.”

That was astute but exaggerated in Byron’s case. It is an apt and unexaggerated characterization of America’s sleaziest, most dishonest, and stupidest President: President Chump.

There is new evidence evidence that President Chump is indeed the Creepy Clown in the White House: here1, here2, here3, here4, here5:

Here are a few tweets (here) about this episode, followed by a suggestion for a political cartoon based upon this incident, and then the announcement of a contest to draw the best version of that political cartoon:

– If what E. Jean Carroll says is true, #PresidentChump attempted rape.
He should be tried.
If convicted, he should go to jail, and should be required to register as a sex offender.

– #PresidentChump claims the he didn’t rape E. Jean Carroll because
she “is not my type”.
Pause for a moment, to digest what Chump’s statement says about his character.

– #PresidentChump claims that he didn’t rape E. Jean Carroll because
“she’s not my type”. But Lady Liberty (the Statue of Liberty) is not his type either, and that hasn’t prevented Chump’s repeated attempts to penetrate her.

This would be a good two-panel cartoon:
Panel 1: Chump in 1995 or 1996, with his pants down and his back toward us, thrusting at E. Jean Carroll.
Panel 2: Chump in 2019, with his pants down (his rear end fatter and droopier than before) and his back toward us, thrusting at Lady Liberty.

If Chump’s campaign in 2020 wanted an honest emblem, that cartoon would be it.

Thepoliblog hereby announces a contest to produce the best version of that two-panel cartoon.

The winner – or winners – would reap no financial award, but would reap recognition and satisfaction, in having struck a forceful blow for humanity.

President Chump has inserted himself into this year’s July 4 celebration on the Mall.

That is clever, but evil.

Chump will be there to propagandize and mis-inform, not to elevate and inspire.

The Lincoln Memorial is a memorial to freedom, and July 4 is a date that memorializes freedom, unity, and rigorously thought-out principled choices.

Chump – an enemy of American values and of the free world – will pollute that place and that date by his presence, and by his words, and by his whole cast of mind.

If you will be near the Lincoln Memorial when Chump speaks, you might like to:

Bring a sign:

…………President Chump!

…………The Creepy Clown in the White House

…………Don’t Trumpollute the Lincoln Memorial!

…………President Chump, Enemy of the Free World

Chant:

…………..President Chump! President Chump!
…………………….Take him to the dump!

………….President Chump! Lock him up!

Each time he lies or advocates evil:

——–Boo loudly

——–shout “Liar!, Liar!”

If any entrepreneur is clever enough to be selling miniature Trump Baby balloons:

——–Jiggle yours, especially if the balloon is where Chump can’t avoid seeing it.

You might want to arrive early, to be close to the Lincoln Memorial,
so that cameras filming from the Memorial will show your balloon and signs.

Bring water!

Eugene Robinson, in an insightful column in the Washington Post, explains well the irony of Chump’s presence at this event. Here is a quote from Robinson’s column:
On Feb. 24, Trump posted this alarming tweet: “HOLD THE DATE!
We will be having one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C.,
on July 4th. It will be called ‘A Salute To America’ and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!”

Note the signature pretentiousness of Chump’s tweet: “the biggest“, and “your favorite President, me!” Notice also the other characteristic of Chump’s statements: the self-serving attempt to pre-empt the way you think about the importance of his speech, and how you categorize him.

The New York Times Should Sue President Chump

President Trump is his official name, but President Chump is his descriptive name.

Chump’s lawyer, Charles Harder, recently threatened that Chump might sue the New York Times for its explosive revelations about Chump’s tax dodges, and those of his father. Tuesday, October 2. David Fahrenthold’s article in the Washington Post is a useful summary, and includes two enlightening videos.

Also galling to Chump was the Times’ evidence that he was not at all a self-made man, but had a huge financial leg up, from his father.

As Paul Farhi notes in an article in the Washington Post, Chump often threatens to sue and then does not sue – exactly the behavior expended of a habitual bully such as himself.

My own reading is that Chump is especially unlikely to sue in this case, because doing so would subject his tax forms to scrutiny by a judge and a jury, and would force the revelation to the public of at least summaries of what he wants to hide.

The shenanigans in Chump’s tax forms are the reason that he never delivered on his repeated promises during the 2016 Presidential campaign that he would release his tax forms.

The New York Times should sue President Chump for libelling the professional integrity and due diligence of its reporters and editors, and the consequent damage the Times’ credibility and reputation, and to the credibility and reputation of the reporters and editors who worked on the story.

If the Times sued Chump, much of what Chump wants to hide would be revealed.

To sue would be the patriotic thing for the New York Times to do, as well as the direct way to undo Chump’s damage to the Times.

Besides defending the Times’ reputation, taking Chump to court would reap widespread public good will, and probably a significant number of new online subscribers.

Trumpkin Chumpkin for Halloween

A Trumpkin, a President Chumpkin, full of lies, cruelty, arrogance and ignorance. By thepoliblog .

A Trumpkin, a President Chumpkin, full of lies, cruelty, arrogance and ignorance. By thepoliblog .

Note the Trumpkin Chumpkin’s realistic features:
Lies issuing from both sides of his mouth.
Cruel teeth. This abominable person separates children from their parents, and then locks them up in a pantry, for later consumption.
Demented eyes, each looking anywhere except at the facts.
A nose for what his “base” wants to hear, regardless of its falsity.

President Chump tried to pin the label of treason on the anonymous White House official who wrote the OpEd in the New York Times.

Chump, it might be treason to your brand, but it is not treason to the United States.

Chump, treason is what occurred when you talked with Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Kislyak in what had formerly been the Oval Office of the White House, in May 2017. You pollute every person and every organization you touch. As long as your presence continues to pollute the White House, the Oval Office is transformed into the Offal Office, the Awful Office.
From President Chump’s mouth to Putin’s ear, via Lavrov and Kislyak.

Treason is Donald Jr’s “I love it!” in anticipation of the June 9, 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in 2016, where he expected to obtain damaging information that Russia had obtained about Hillary Clinton. Given Don’s expectations, his participation was treasonous, because he his statement indicates that he would have been willing to broadcast information obtained by Russian Intelligence Services: information whose broadcast was desired by Russian Intelligence Services, and whose broadcast would have constituted Russian interference in an American election. Don was therefore hoping to collude with a foreign power.

Treason is also Trump fabricating a cover-up story for Donald Jr about that meeting: Trump had Don Jr. claim that the discussion in Trump Tower was about American adoptions of Russian children, not about Don Jr. expected the meeting to discuss, nor about what it actually did discuss.

Treason is Presudent Chump attempting to abort and otherwise impede an investigation of Putin’s interference in the US Presidential election in 2016.

Treason is candidate Trump calling out, “Russia, if you’re listening …” In that July 27, 2016 statement, Trump begged for collusion by Russia, to help Trump win the Presidential election.

An instructive article by Dana Milbank in the Washington Post chronicles the remarkably many people who President Chump has accused of treason. Recall the story of the Emperor with no clothes, who had been flattered into believing that he was stunningly dressed. If that Emperor had been President Chump, he would have charged with treason the person who yelled out the truth.

President Chump often screams “Fake News!”, to devalue unfavorable news.
What a hypocrite!
He deliberately generates fake news. Pretending to sometimes be John Miller, sometimes be John Barron, and sometimes to be John Baron, he told lies about himself to the news media.

President Chump accused President Obama of spending to much time playing golf!
What a hypocrite!

Candidate Chump and President Chump tries to pin the label lyin’ on Hillary Clinton and on everyone else who opposes him.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who is the biggest liar of them all?

Lets return to President Chump’s inability to distinguish between loyalty to himself and loyalty to the country.

This inability is due in part to Chump’s fragile ego. To preserve his self-esteme, Chump hides the fragility of his ego from himself by being an ego-maniac, who sees the world as revolving about himself.

But Chump’s inability to distinguish between loyalty to himself and loyalty to the country also because President Chump is the President who would be King.

Chump thought that being the President meant being a non-hereditary King – not a constitutional monarch, but like Henry VIII. Henry VIII didn’t have to to distinguish between loyalty to himself and loyalty to his country.

Chump boasts that while a student he didn’t read the assigned texts. He is proud of having gotten through by guessing, and takes that to be proof of a superior intelligence. So Chump didn’t know that the US President is not a King.

Chump’s desire to be an old-school King is why he admires authoritarian leaders like Putin, Duterte, and Xi. It is also why Chump thinks that Obama, Merkel, and May are weak.

Chump’s preference for authoritarian leaders is one reason for Chump having become Putin’s chihuahua.

Another reason is that Russian investors close to Putin bailed Trump out of his company’s latest bankrupcy. Putin bought Trump, and Trump knows it.

President Chump’s preference for authoritarian leaders is why he – unlike previous Presidents – is not the leader of the free world. The present leaders of the free world are Merkel, Macron, and Trudeau.
