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.
.
Hillary Clinton would have won if it hadn’t been for the obsolete Electoral College, Putin’s interference, disgruntled Berniecrats, and the malevolent Green Party, which always draws pro-environment votes away from the only pro-environment candidates who could win.
.
.
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.
.
.
@realDonaldTrump, #PresidentChump, are you proud of what you tried to do to Vera Coking?
{Widowed Homeowner Foils Trump in Atlantic City, By DAVID M. HERSZENHORN JULY 21, 1998}
And YOU call OTHER people NASTY!
.
.
@realDonaldTrump, #PresidentChump, you tried to have an elderly widow, Vera Coking, ejected from from the home that held all of her treasured memories.
You LOST!
You claim that you always win, but that is just a bluff. You are a LOSER!
.
.
#PresidentChump = President John Barron = President John Baron = President John Miller.
You pretended to the New York Times to be other people
with insider information about the wealth and victories of Donald Trump.
That was ACTUAL Fake News!
.
.
The United States WAS the greatest and most powerful nation on Earth, but only  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 himself.
.
.
#PresidentChump, in 2002 you said of Jeffrey Epstein “… he likes beautiful women
as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” How young did you know about?
.
.
Leave, #PresidentChump! Emmigrate to Putinia – Putin’s Russia.
You don’t share the values of any free country.
.
.
America receives NO PAYMENTS from the tariffed country.
Importers in the US pay, and ultimately WE pay.
Another lie by #PresidentChump.
.
.
The Pilgrims were refugees, seeking freedom to practice their religion.
Most other immigrants from Europe and elsewhere came to escape persecution
and/or sought opportunity. Examples: your paternal grandparents and your mother.

Today’s immigrants have the same motives.
#PresidentChump, what is your justification for persecuting them?
.
.
Disloyal Devin Nunes,
Dances to Putin’s tunes.
Devin, why do you oppose protecting American elections against Putin?
Devin, why haven’t you registered as lobbyist for a foreign government?
.
.
Mitch McConnell is not Putin’s agent. He just acts like one.
.
.
@realDonaldTrump
You said that “Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun.”
That just proves that the gun shouldn’t have been available, #PresidentChump.
.
.
Other countries have about the same percentage as we do
of mentally ill people and of haters.
But they don’t have as many mass shootings (we are number 1!)
because in other countries guns are not so easy to obtain, #PresidentChump.
.
.
#PresidentChump, your trade wars reflect poorly on Wharton.
You failed to learn at Wharton why trade deficits are not harmful.
.
.
Hey, #MoscowMitch! You obstruct the defense of the integrity of US elections.
That obstructs the defense of the integrity of Kentucky’s elections.
.
Did Kentucky’s voters know that they voted for a Senator who would work against their interests?
Putin thanks you for leaving the door open.
.
.
#MoscowMitch is too busy protecting #PresidentChump and Putin.
He doesn’t have time to work on protecting American adults or kids.
Not even kids in Kentucky.
.
.
#PresidentChump, Wharton’s shame.
Mis-understands foreign trade,
Causing farmers’ pain.
.
.
#PresidentChump, Wharton’s shame.
Wharton should withdraw your degree
until you pass a remedial course
in foreign trade.

Disloyal Americans in Congress

Jim Jordan (R-OH) in the 114th Congress.

Jim Jordan (R-OH) in the 114th Congress.

In a recent Congressional hearing, Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) shouted at Rod Rosenstein, “Why are you keeping information from Congress?”. This question referred to Robert Mueller’s special investigation of Putin’s interference in the Presidential election in 2016. Mueller’s investigation had been approved by Rod Rosenstein.

Jim Jordan’s question was loaded, like “When did you stop beating your wife?”

A question is loaded if it is being used as a vehicle for making an un-proven assertion, usually a derogatory assertion. The question is being used in a sneaky attempt to implant the assertion into the minds of those who hear the question.

Jim Jordan’s question was dishonorable. Indeed, Jim Jordan is both dishonorable and disloyal.

Jim Jordan is posturing at due diligence in Congress, in part to deflect attention to the fact that he either did not exercise sufficient due diligence to learn about Richard Strauss’ widely known sexual abuse of wrestlers at Ohio State University , or else that he knew about it but chose not to do anything about it.

Here are some legitimate questions. They are not loaded questions, because they assert about Jim Jordan only what his actions have proved about him.

– Jim Jordan, why are you opposed to the investigation of the well-established fact that Putin interfered in the Presidential election in 2016?

– Jim Jordan, why are you opposed to the United States and it allies learning from Mueller’s investigation how we and our allies can combat Putin’s future attempts at manipulating public opinion and elections in our country?

Your opposition amounts to obstruction of justice, and delays the improvement of our cyber-defenses.

– Jim Jordan, why are you obstructing justice?

– Jim Jordan, since you are obstructing justice, and are delaying the US’s defense against Putin’s manipulations, why should anyone believe your claim that you didn’t know about Richard Strauss’ sexual abuse of wrestlers at Ohio State University?

– Jim Jordan, when did you cease to be a patriotic American?

As an institution, Congress is worthy of respect. But not all Congressional Representatives are worthy of respect.

Jim Jordan is not worthy of respect.

The same is true of the notorious Devin Nunes, and of Bob Goodlatte, Mark Meadows and Matt Gaetz, who collude with Jim Jordan.

Each of these disloyal Americans in Congress proritizes partisan advantage over justice, and also proritizes partisan advantage over the election-based legitimacy of the United States Government.

This has been eloquently stated by Kathie Sowell and by Beth Kreydatus in their letters to the Editor of the Washington Post.

These disloyal Americans in Congress are opposed to investigating attacks on our electoral integrity, and therefore on the legitimacy of our government.

They are opposed to obtaining the information that is needed for developing defenses of our electoral integrity, and therefore of the legitimacy of our government.

Their loyalty is to their party, in its current degenerate form. Their loyalty is not to their country.

They are colluding in a Trump-Putin disinformation campaign.

None of them merit security clearances.

None of them deserve to be re-elected next November.

They should be impeached, or at least censured.

A “Freedom Caucus”? They are the exact opposite.

Disloyal Americans in government are also found outside of the House of Representatives: Rand Paul in the Senate, by President Chump, Rudi Giuliani (formerly a hero, now a heel), and their cronies in the Administration.

The headline of a Washington Post article by Max Boot: “Trump is ignoring the worst attack on America since 9/11 … we are at war without a commander in chief.

An astute and careful commentator, E.J. Dionne Jr., notes “And Republicans should bear in mind that disrupting Robert S. Mueller III’s probe serves Putin’s interests, not just Trump’s.

In an insightful article about the attempt by Jim Jordan and cronies to impeach Rod Rosenstein, Jennifer Rubin quotes Norman Eisen (a former White House ethics counsel ) and Fred Wertheimer (founder of Democracy 21): “Key House Republicans are abusing their offices and the public trust to blindly provide protection for [President] Trump. They are doing so instead of working to get to the bottom of the worst foreign attack on American elections in our history.

In an update that is included in the online article, Jennifer Rubin then noted: “In case it wasn’t clear that this is all about Jordan’s political aspirations, he [Jim Jordan] indicated today that he is running for speaker[of the House of Representatives].”

You may remember Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who uncovered crucial information about the break-in at the Watergate by Nixon’s team. Margaret Sullivan, of the Washington Post, reports that “Earlier this month, Bernstein said on CNN that he had never seen anything like the political reaction to Trump’s kowtowing to Russian President Vladimir Putin at a news conference following their Helsinki meeting: “We’ve never had a moment in our history like this where serious people of both parties are questioning the loyalty of the president of the United States. Unprecedented.””

The GOP, AWOL as the U.S. is attacked“. That is the headline of an important article by Joe Scarborough in the Washington Post. Scarborough’s article is well worth looking at. It is a masterful concise summary that includes all of the most important facts.

The active disloyalty of Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, Bob Goodlatte, Mark Meadows and Matt Gaetz, and their ilk must be distinguished from the passive disloyalty of Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. The passively disloyal deliberately refuse to legislatively forestall Trump’s likely attempt to fire Mueller, much as he fired Comey over “the Russian thing”, and removed Brennan’s security clearance to silence a voice that was pointing out Trump’s errors.

Unpatriotic Devin Nunes, Unpatriotic Donald Trump

Devin Nunes, U.S. Representative from California

Devin Nunes, U.S. Representative from California

Every loyal American would want the investigation of Putin’s interference in the 1916 election to get to the bottom of what Putin’s minions did, and how they did it. Every loyal American would want to refute Putin’s lies, and would want America to have the information it needs to craft defenses against Putin’s future attempts, both on this country and on its allies.

It is iron-clad logic, a simple syllogism: if every loyal American would want those things, then any American who obstructs those investigations and defenses is not a loyal American.

Devin Nunes is not a loyal American.

Donald Trump is not a loyal American.

Devin Nunes is not a patriotic American.

Donald Trump is not a patrotic American.

Devin Nunes is inadvertantly an agent of Vladimir Putin.

Donald Trump is inadvertantly an agent of Vladimir Putin.

Neither should ever have had access to classified information.

Neither should have future access to classified information.

Trump’s primary loyalty is to himself and to his “brand” – not to America, not to freedom, not to fairness, not to honest elections.

There are indications that the same is true of Devin Nunes.

Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution begins, “The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, …”

The writers of the Constitution never anticipated a President who favored an opponent of the United States.

What about Paul Ryan?

Donald Trump shaking hands with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan at his February 28, 2017 address to a joint session of Congress.

Surely Paul Ryan had some sense of Devin Nunes’ personality and character before appointing him to the House Intelligence Committee.

Why then did Paul Ryan appoint Nunes as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee?

Why did Paul Ryan even allow Nunes to be on that Committee?

Paul, please explain to the American people why you appointed Nunes as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Paul, now that you cannot miss seeing that you introduced a worm into the apple, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to re-assign Nunes?

Paul, are you, too, not a loyal American?

Paul, are you, too, inadvertantly an agent of Putin?

Paul, where are your primary loyalties? They seem to be to the Republican Party in its current debased form, not to America, not to freedom, not to fairness, not to honest elections.

As noted by Ruth Marcus in the Washington Post:

“Real patriotism would be not to denounce the “Russia hoax” but to insist that Congress — and for that matter, special counsel Robert S. Mueller III — get to the bottom of what happened in the 2016 election and, even more imperative, that the United States strengthen its defenses to prevent future meddling.”

Dishonorable Devin Nunes: What Are His Loyalties?

To what Is Devil Nunes loyal?

The one who is better known as Devin Nunes (R-Calif.)

Based on his stonewalling of investigations into Russia’s role, and his frantic attempts to divert the focus of the investigation away from Russia and away from Trump’s campaign, and toward the patriots who alerted the country, and his secret nightime trip to confer with the White House, it appears that Devin Nunes’ loyalties, in their order of importance to him, are

  • First, Devin Nunes himself, followed – possibly closely – by his family.
  • Second, Trump, followed – possibly closely – by the Republican Party in its present grotesquely deformed version.
  • Third, possibly the United States, possibly including the district that he supposedly represents.

Given that order of priorities, it is not fitting that Nunes should be a member of the House Intelligence Committee, much less that he should chair it.

Nunes was in Trump’s transition team. Yet he claims that there is no conflict of interest for him to lead the investigation of contacts between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

The conflict of interest is clear. Nunes cannot be objective about this issue.

In attempting to deflect attention away from the real danger – Putin’s mafia – Devin Nunes betrayed his country.

He doesn’t belong in Congress.

For his future, his best career option is to apply to become a caddy at one of Trump’s golf courses.
