WHAT A FUCKING NERVE! REDUX

There is no end to the insulting nerve of the despicable Republican Party. These criminals went on and on and on – blah blah blah blah blah – about Bill and Hillary Clinton’s “possible” personal profit from the Clinton Foundation. They never let up in their accusations of conflict-of-interest. As far back as 1992 they targeted the Clinton’s on financial contributions by Bill and Hillary Clinton into a real estate entity known as Whitewater Development Corporation during his time as an Arkansas state official. There were three separate investigations! Eventually, the Justice Department and independent counsel launched investigations. Nothing was ever proved.

In 1993 it was Travelgate – and independent Counsel Ken Starr found no blame rested with Bill Clinton. Another independent counsel scrutinized Hillary Clinton’s involvement and statements about the firings but seven years after the event, he found no basis to bring any charges against her.

And it went on and on and on. Years of unproven accusation after unproven accusation. These shitbags even held hearings accusing Hillary Clinton in the suicide death of Deputy White House counsel Vince Foster! And, the Republicans billed us a total of nearly $80m for all this unending harassment. As I have written before; Republicans do not govern, their agenda is doing whatever they can to prevent others from doing so.

Now, Republican lawmakers and watchdog groups have asked whether Clinton Foundation, established in 1997, engaged in conflicts of interest or quid pro quo deals during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. Really?

I was willing to wait and see but

…these same self-righteous slimy Republicans see no wrong in Trump’s vast, complicated network of businesses under the Trump Organization, including numerous foreign investments and debts, which could create unprecedented conflicts of interest when he takes the oath of office as U.S. president in January. Contrary to what government ethics experts say. Hey, not to worry…right?

And, that other paragon of Republican virtue Rudy Ghouliani, perhaps a pick for secretary of State, faces potential conflicts of interest should he be appointed to the position. The former New York City mayor has been paid millions as a lawyer and consultant for foreign governments, according to a Politico report. The outlet notes that such ties — some with clients who were at odds with U.S. foreign policy – were considered a major issue during Ghouliani’s presidential run in the 2008 cycle. He collected millions working for foreign governments including Qatar and Venezuela, and he made paid speeches to help an exiled Iranian political party be removed from terror lists. And the Clinton’s are investigated?

Do we need to cite what a lowlife racist anti-Semitic Fascist scumbag this piece of shit Bannon is? And Trump sees fit to appoint him his chief strategist? One more reason why Donald Trump – whose name I will NEVER preface with the P word – is a gross malignancy, a creep of the first magnitude. As big a scumbag as Bannon and Ghouliani.

And, whether they are appointed or not, just the idea that names like these vermin are being bruited about: John (Let’s Bomb) Bolton, and Myron Ebell a leading contrarian of the scientific consensus on global warming, who will lead Donald Trump’s transition team at the EPA (is this a bad joke?), and Jeff (an admitted racist) Sessions as possible AG, and – eeeww – Rudy Ghouliani, is a slap in the face of we, the people.

Also, the problem as I see it – besides letting all these cockroaches into the White House – is that it may take a little longer than the mid-terms  which will be in 2 years – for the terrible damage this Jackass* Trump – who lost the popular vote – and his moronic minions will have caused to be felt by the people who elected him.

I cannot overstate how much I despise Donald Trump, the Republican Party – and everything they stand for – and pretend to stand for.

  1. Ghouliani…you charmer, you, lol! The only things I take exception with, Tony, is calling Trump a “world-class malignancy.” There’s nothing world class about him. He’s just a GROSS malignancy.

    By the way, Kirsten Gillibrand is waiting for your call to voice your complaints against Bannon. Her staff are taking a head-count of how many constituents call in with their concern so she can speak to that in the Senate. Call her.

  2. I can’t believe the laissez faire attitude there seems to be about the incredible conflicts of interests and ethical pandora’s boxes that Trumps tangled web of business self interests pose to the office of President. But after his unfathomamable election and the shit show before it I don’t know why I let anything surprise me anymore…

    The GOP have brilliantly neutered the American people at large. Their base, closet bigots & religious fundee’s, will buy anything they’re selling. And those who would & should oppose them have entered into a slumber of apathy; as long as they have their 50″ HDTV with Netflix & HBO, a steady supply of antidepressants, benzodiazepines and opiate painkillers or alcohol or the current cause celebre, marijuana, they blissfully live in ignorance. As an addict in recovery I know how easy it is to pull the blanket of your substance of choice over your head and just ignore the world that doesn’t effect your immediate perimeter.

    Not saying every Liberal Dem is a junky, or slave to the Cult of Celebrity, I’m just saying that when 45 million Americans who are eligible to vote stay home during the most important election of our time, that’s fucked. When 7 million or so Democrats who voted for Barack either vote third party, for Trump or not at all during this literal life & death election, that’s fucked.

    The GOP have masterfully worked the American people who voted for this charlatan better than Carl Rove or Dick Cheney could have. Using every irrational fear (the end of white society, the killer Muslims, the queers teaching little Jethro), the GOP worked these dumbfuck rubes better than any wrestling angle ever could. Now as Trump turns the Executive branch of the United States Government into a subsidiary of Trump Corp. while they continue to make $8 an hour the rest of their lives, the buttfucking of America seems complete.

    Be cool…
