The World Reacts With Disgust To trump

So I turned on the TV yesterday just in time to catch some of trump’s speech. I listened in disgust. It was just horrible. I couldn’t watch all of it. What was not lost on me was the look on Michelle Obama’s face. Her face reflected disgust and sadness. I felt so badly for her.

Just now, I looked at Twitter and came across this – trump visiting the CIA.

This man is a disgusting pig and he is losing it bigly.

However, I am watching the marches across the world and am heartened that so many other people feel the same way about this odious leech.

So today, hubby and I went to the local shopping center. I wanted to get flank steak for carne asada.



Hubby needed to collect contact lenses from the optician. I said I would meet him there. Anyway, I was meandering along to the opticians and the next thing hubby jumped out from behind a pillar and shouted “Boo.”

Well, I screamed at the top of my voice and then when I realised it was him, I was absolutely mortified. I mean I can let loose with a pretty mean shriek.

Everyone was watching and laughing.

I’m still not right and I keep getting into uncontrollable giggling fits.

Gonna watch the donald later.

Russian Money Laundering In US Election

Courtesy of McClatchyDC:

The FBI and five other law enforcement and intelligence agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation into Russian attempts to influence the November election, including whether money from the Kremlin covertly aided President-elect Donald Trump, two people familiar with the matter said.

The agencies involved in the inquiry are the FBI, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and representatives of the director of national intelligence, the sources said.

Investigators are examining how money may have moved from the Kremlin to covertly help Trump win, the two sources said. One of the allegations involves whether a system for routinely paying thousands of Russian-American pensioners may have been used to pay some email hackers in the United States or to supply money to intermediaries who would then pay the hackers, the two sources said…

…The BBC reported that the FBI had obtained a warrant on Oct. 15 from the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court allowing investigators access to bank records and other documents about potential payments and money transfers related to Russia. One of McClatchy’s sources confirmed the report.

Susan Hennessey, a former attorney for the National Security Agency who is now a fellow at the Brookings Institution, said she had no knowledge that a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant had been issued. However, she stressed that such warrants are issued only if investigators can demonstrate “probable cause” that a crime has been committed and the information in Steele’s dossier couldn’t have met that test.

“If, in fact, law enforcement has obtained a FISA warrant, that is an indication that additional evidence exists outside of the dossier,” she said.

So far, this information seems to reiterate some parts of the dossier. Where there is smoke there is fire. I hope trump is feeling the heat. He has pissed off enough of the intelligence agencies for them to go rogue.

In sad and frightening news, Trump also appears to be limiting press freedom (this was always going to bite you in the butt you wallies).

Climate change is reaching a critical point. Three straight years of hottest year ever.

President Obama gave his last press conference as POTUS. I feel like crying.

Donald Trump – A Very Dangerous Snowflake


Courtesy of The Guardian:

The definition of snowflake.

If you’ve ever sat through a rightwing YouTube rant or spent five minutes on Twitter, you’ve likely heard the word “snowflake”. The term has supplanted the old standby of “social justice warrior” to describe a certain kind of liberal. This is thanks in large part to the far-right blog Breitbart, which lobbed it at anyone who criticized Trump’s incendiary rhetoric. But if you’re unfamiliar with the term, allow me to explain…

…In sum: self-imposed victimhood, an inflated sense of self-importance, an inability to handle criticism, and a totalitarian demand for respect are the criteria that define the snowflake. It’s ironic, then, that the public figure who most reliably projects those qualities at the moment is Donald Trump. America is soon to inaugurate its first Snowflake-in-Chief.


However, this one is a very dangerous snowflake. He is white as snow under his narrow, slitted eyes and he most definitely is flaky, as in stark-raving mad.

I know I am not the only one who is horrified and terrified since November 9th. I had to go into the city tonight and returned to hear hubby calling to me to come in and watch The BBC Panorama Show. It was about trump and putin. (Lower case intentional).

To say that pretty much the whole world is freaked out by these pair of misfits is an understatement. trump is not making any secret of his desire for putin. These two assholes have a tremendous amount of power or will have by the end of the week. It is quite clear now that they both want to see the EU break up, NATO dismantled and get rid of that German bitch.

I don’t know what exactly is true in the dossier, but one thing is certain. putin has trump by the short and curlies. And I mean short. Like his fingers.

Add to that the shocking behaviour of Preibus and Chaffetz. With gleeful smiles they told the whole world to fuck off. We ain’t fishing here and if that old ethics guy gets in out way, well then he’d better watch out. As the Scots said so well over the weekend, we are in the twilight zone. The GOP threw out any sense of patriotism with their refusal to have hearings for Merrick Garland last year. For me that was the final straw.

But fucking emails……

And Hillary…please don’t go to his urination.

Something To Share

My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment and often righteous rage over the latest degradations of what matters most to civilized, visionary people.


You are right in your assessments. The lustre and hubris some have aspired to while endorsing acts so heinous against children, elders, everyday people, the poor, the unguarded, the helpless, is breathtaking. Yet, I urge you, ask you, gentle you, to please not spend your spirit dry by bewailing these difficult times. Especially do not lose hope. Most particularly because, the fact is that we were made for these times. Yes. For years, we have been learning, practicing, been in training for and just waiting to meet on this exact plain of engagement.


I grew up on the Great Lakes and recognize a seaworthy vessel when I see one. Regarding awakened souls, there have never been more able vessels in the waters than there are right now across the world. And they are fully provisioned and able to signal one another as never before in the history of humankind.
