Index: Bernie Sanders and the 2016 Primary

My very first post related to Bernie Sanders was a plea to Democrats. We have to defeat Sanders, I insisted. I detailed how my call violated the “Vote Blue No Matter Who” meme. I discussed the ugliness of his campaign, the potential for infiltration in his camp by hostile forces and concluded with this sentiment.

As far as I’m concerned, the Unite Blue strategy is a hoax. We are wasting valuable time in our politeness. And while we preserve this false unity, our opponent is gathering strength. We cannot afford to play nice.

Three Blockbusters in the Hush Contract

There are three eye-openers in the passel of legal documents involving the president and the porn star and two are bigger bombshells than Stormy’s claim to an eyeball view of Donald’s junk.

Stephanie Clifford aka Stormy Daniels aka Peggy Peterson and Donald Trump aka David Dennison are the subjects of these headline wranglings along with the president’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen aka The Fixer.

The blockbuster news is found in the original nondisclosure agreement dated 28 October 2016, just a few days before the 2016 presidential election.

Everything But Putin


He’s unglued.

He’s mad at Jeff Sessions.

He’s upset over Hope Hicks.

He’s angry with Mueller.

He’s frustrated about Jared Kushner.

He was gunning for a fight.

These are the reasons given for the Trump announcement of aluminum and steel tariffs. These are the only reasons proposed for the sudden and unvetted news. However, the script for the pending trade wars is missing one hot button event.

On Thursday, March 1, NBC’s Megyn Kelly scored her second interview with Vladimir Putin, president of the Russian Federation. This event occurred on the same day of Trump’s tariff declaration.

Remember Megyn Kelly? Trump does. She was his nemesis on the debate stage, the brunt of his crude “blood coming from her…” insult. Megyn Kelly, the female who dared to rebuff Trump and who earned his undying hatred and a top spot on his Revenge List.

Here she is again, upstaging him, separating the eyes and ears of the world from the megalomaniac that is Donald Trump.

You bet he came unglued.

To add insult to injury, Kelly is speaking one-on-one with Putin, the character who looms over his head like a black vulture, the origin of the Mueller turmoil, the single name dirtying Trump’s ultimate glory as president. That Trump and Putin are witting players in his questionable victory matters not. In the frenzied mind of Trump, the autocrat of Russia is just another interloper, one more bit actor interrupting the god drama of Donald.

Yes he was fuming.

What could Donald do but find something – anything – to boot Putin from the stage and insert himself?


Little wonder that Trump bypassed all the norms of policy-making. He didn’t have a moment to waste. No time for review or a heads up to Congress or approval from his relevant Cabinet.

And so, we have the complete surprise announcement of aluminum and steel tariffs.

The press have been nipping at his heels ever since. Even NBC News sacrificed Kelly’s substantial interview for Trump’s tariffs, giving her cursory headlines and limited coverage rather than a full-on promotional campaign.

The American media are lapdogs. They have facilitated an unpardonable crime – publicizing an unofficial, maybe-policy from a puffed-up, halfwit in lieu of a threat of nuclear proliferation by a world power. That the instrument of this power is accused of information warfare on the United States makes their malfeasance inexcusable.

Trump won – again. We see why and how that happened. Look to the media.

The passing and the frame

This is the flight and the flame,
a flock of geese at sunset,
the passing and the frame.

Death requires a name,
demands sense and yet,
this is the flight and the flame.

So loudly the elder claim
that children pay their debt.
The passing and the frame.

Fiercely the children shame,
unmask, outlive and resurrect.
This is the flight and the flame.

They uncover the deadly aim,
cleanse, survive, pay respect.
This is the flight and the flame,
the passing and the frame.
