The Madness of King Stupid

Putin Rides Again
(credit: The Art of Buddy McCue via Scissorhead B-4)

The Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac investigation may be over, but it lives on in the 4th Reich’s efforts to prove that the whole thing was a conspiracy by everyone else from the Deep State (whoever that is!) to Hillary Clinton, because of course she would do whatever it took to have the Russians throw the election to Comrade Trump.

IT GOES RIGHT TO THE TOP, SHEEPLE!!11

Anyway, to that end, Comrade Prznint Stupid has given strategic hire AG Bill ‘low’ Barr sweeping power to declassify intelligence records in a review of how his 2016 Goat Rodeo campaign was investigated.  Which means that the entire intelligence apparatus of the United States and three different U.S. attorneys are now chasing chasing Comet Hale-Bopp like good Heaven’s Gate cultists. Because we have a mad king and everything is about his whims, and settling scores. That’s why.

Be very clear about this: that is the President of the United States calling for the death penalty for James Comey and others.

NYTimes:

“President Trump took extraordinary steps on Thursday to give Attorney General William P. Barr sweeping new authorities to conduct a review into how the 2016 Trump campaign’s ties to Russia were investigated, significantly escalating the administration’s efforts to place those who investigated the campaign under scrutiny.

“In a directive, Mr. Trump ordered the C.I.A. and the country’s 15 other intelligence agencies to cooperate with the review and granted Mr. Barr the authority to unilaterally declassify their documents. The move — which occurred just hours after the president again declared that those who led the investigation committed treason — gave Mr. Barr immense leverage over the intelligence community and enormous power over what the public learns about the roots of the Russia investigation.

“The order is a change for Mr. Trump, who last year dropped a plan to release documents related to the Russia investigation amid concerns from Justice Department officials who said making them public could damage national security.”

Developing: Someone Was Too Dumb To Successfully Bribe Comrade Trump

Grifters Gotta Grift

Screw-you, cha-cha-cha

When Comrade Stupid put his hand on the Bible, and it did not burst into flames (and/or Dick Cheney did not materialize in a cloud of sulfer), and so it was the signal that the Oval Office was open for bidness, and like one of those prototype Amazon Grab ‘n’ Go stores, everything was for sale. Take what you want, it will be added to your tab like black magic!

You wanna be an ambassador? EZ, just buy a $200K Amero membership to Merda-a-Lardo like handbag designer Lana Marks!

You want to secretly run the VA for shits and giggles? You could do as Bruce Moskowitz, Marc Sherman, and Ike Perlmutter (the reclusive chairman of Marvel Entertainment, known for wearing Groucho glasses with nose and false mustaches to disguise himself in public!) did and pony-up for a Merde-a-Lardo membership, too/also.

You wanna be the new AG? Write a lovely letter to the DOJ explaining how The Russian Usurper is totally INNOCENT. It works like a charm, ask Bill ‘Low’ Barr!

You need a Pardon? Just write an ass-kissing book or two, and Boom! You’re a freeman, just ask Conrad Black for details!

What do we discern from these anecdotal stories? Kiss ass or buy a membership, but don’t be crass and tip Comrade Stupid a Benjamin, the man has class with a capital ASS, and no one in the mob every hands over the dough to the Don.

So it comes to us as a great surprise that someone would just show up with a boatload of small, unmarked Ameros in non-sequential order. It also surprised us that somehow Trump didn’t end up with the money AND the boat!

Is he slipping or is it possible that Comrade McGrifter has some sort of ethics after all?

No. The rube in this scenario, Stephan Calk, paid off the wrong grifter!

Calk, a former economic adviser to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, was indicted Thursday for allegedly approving $16 million in loans to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in exchange for his help seeking a top post in the administration. Calk, the founder of mortgage lender Federal Savings Bank of Chicago, illegally used the bank’s resources to curry favor with Manafort, ignoring internal standards and lying to regulators, according to the indictment unsealed in the Southern District of New York.

I thought that at the better schools that all the plutocrats’ kids are bribing their way into that our future Overlords learned to never deal with the hired help, and here this Bankster Bastard was trying to buy an administration job from a lowly covfefe boy like Petting-zoo Paulie!

We need a better class of crook. What’s the world coming to? But I digress.

According to Calk’s indictment, Manafort took a break from his duties running Trump’s campaign on July 27, 2016, to attend an initial meeting in New York with a loan officer to discuss a multimillion-dollar loan. Calk joined by video and, according to prosecutors, told Manafort he would be interested in work on Trump’s campaign. . . . Calk did not testify at Manafort’s 2018 trial for bank and tax fraud, but other officers from his bank took the stand to describe the unusual process by which the bank approved a loan for Manafort.

So what did Calk expect for $18M Ameros? Oh, you know, the usual:

“Calk provided the Borrower with a ranked list of the governmental positions he desired, which started with Secretary of the Treasury, and was followed by Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Commerce, and Secretary of Defense, as well as 19 ambassadorships similarly ranked and starting with the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Italy.”

The White House has “long refused to answer when Manafort actually stopped communicating with members of Trump’s orbit,” for obvious reasons we now understand.

But what is even funnier is that according to the indictment on or about Nov. 30, 2016, Manafort ‘sent a recommendation to a senior member of the Presidential Transition Team’s executive committee (‘Transition Official-1’) that CALK be appointed Secretary of the Army. Per Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie (emphasis mine):

“Kushner isn’t named in the indictment, but at Manafort’s trial, prosecutors introduced an email Manafort sent to Kushner on Nov. 30 recommending Calk be nominated for Army secretary. ‘On it!’ Kushner wrote. Calk was interviewed on Jan. 10 for the Army secretary job and ultimately did not get it, the indictment says.

Looks like Calk bribed the wrong grifter!

So Paulie took the $18M Ameros and ran? And Calk is holding the (now empty) bag for trying to bribe this administration. Calk faces up to 30 years in prison, while Manafort is currently serving a seven-and-a-half-year sentence.

Just let that sink in for a moment. Dude was so stupid he couldn’t successfully bribe Prznint Comrade Trump, the most avaricious, grasping grifter in the history of the Republic, and he’s gonna spend more time in the sneezer than Paulie.

Your Kind Cannot Take Shelter Here

Christian Kindness

Bennie ‘The Blade’ Carson

The Department of Housing and Urban Development has proposed a new rule that would allow homeless shelters that receive federal funding to deny homeless people entry on religious grounds, and force transgender women to use men’s restrooms and sleeping quarters:

A day before the proposal was released, HUD Secretary Ben Carson said he was not anticipating any changes to the Obama-era Equal Access Rule while being questioned by Congress.

“The announcement today that HUD will now allow anti-trans discrimination in shelters demonstrates that he either lied to Congress or has no idea what policies his agency is pursuing,” Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) told Politico.

One in three trans people have been homeless in their lives, and 70 percent of trans people who have been in shelters have experienced harassment.

War on Women, Part Infinity

[Ed. I’m sticking this on top today for obvious reasons. Get to work, Scissorheads! And many thanks for all you do! — Tengrain]

[PS – Newer posts will be below. — TG]

I’m breaking bad, or at least I am breaking badly one of the unwritten rules of blogging: I’m reposting in its entirety a section of the Pod Save Whatevs newsletter from last night and providing no link because there isn’t one!

I think they would be OK with that because this is a 4-alarm fire, about to become a 5-alarm fire:


Louisiana’s senate has passed a constitutional amendment that declares the state’s citizens have no constitutional right to abortions, despite the fact that the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade established that the right exists nationwide.

 

Before it goes into effect, the state’s House must approve it, and Louisiana voters must adopt it at the ballot box this fall.

 

  • If you live in Louisiana, make sure you are registered to vote so you can vote against this →
  • Donate to the ACLU, which fights laws like this in court →
  • Donate to Planned Parenthood, which also fights these laws in court and supports women who seek abortion care in Louisiana→

This is your daily reminder that elections matter if you want to fight back against shit like this. Take Nevada for example. Just yesterday, Nevada’s female-majority legislature voted to repeal criminal penalties that apply to women who take abortion-inducing drugs or perform abortions on themselves, and remove requirements on doctors to explain the “physical and emotional implications” of abortion before the procedure. This would have been impossible if voters hadn’t stormed the polls in 2018 and chosen new, better leaders.


The theocrats in Louisiana are anticipating that the SCOTUS is going to throw out Roe v Wade and they want to get ahead of that eventuality and have this outrageous amendment to their state constitution on their books so that INSTANTLY there is no chance of women getting their medical needs attended to in that state.

This is dangerous, and if you know of anyone in LA, you need to make sure that they are aware that this is going on. I contacted my friends there already, you should do the same.

Living Typo Delays $20 Amero Redesign – ‘Not On My Watch’

Living typo Steve Mnuchin and his villainess wife, Craven Moorehead

Well, this was predictable coming from the 4th Reich and hits both the War on Women and their usual racism, a two-fer:

“The redesign of the $20 bill featuring Harriet Tubman will no longer be unveiled in 2020, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Wednesday…

“The primary reason we have looked at redesigning the currency is for counterfeiting issues,” Mnuchin said in response to questions by Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., during a hearing before the House Financial Services Committee. “Based upon this, the $20 bill will now not come out until 2028. The $10 bill and the $50 bill will come out with new features beforehand.”

“Oh, surely, ‘Grain, you have to believe him,” you say. “He’s the Secretary of the Treasury, and his hobby is taking pictures with money!”

President Donald Trump, months before he was elected, called the decision to put Tubman on the currency “pure political correctness” and proposed putting her portrait on the $2 bill.

This is EXACTLY the petty crap that Comrade Trump specializes in; just like only having the flags at half staff for half a day for Grandpa Walnuts. Also/too: this is exactly the kind of sniveling toadyism one would expect from Mnuchin.
