#Politics: Trump’s Dystopia

Over 200,00 Americans have paid with their lives for the sins
of trump’s corrupt enablers.

I will never understand why the people who betray us
expect us to love them for it.

Rob’s Weekly Wrap-up 02/15-02/22

This week started with much ado about Trump’s Fake Emergency followed by the stark midweek revelation from Andrew McCabe that trump is a suspected enemy agent, at best, unwitting. In the meantime North Carolina gets a new congressional election, the FBI arrested a violent white supremacist for planning to unleash a chemical weapons attack against everyone on Trump’s political hit list, a judge gagged Roger Stone and Robert Mueller is and is not soon to release his report on #TrumpRussia, maybe.

On a personal note, therapy is rough as I come to terms with the years I lost to my illness.

Rob’s News Wrap Up 01/18-01/25

“Michael Cohen feels like his personal safety has been threatened by President Trump, that’s the kind of anxiety known only by every other person on the planet.” Stephen Colbert

In the last 48 hours, we’ve had a year’s worth of news; this is a big collection of videos.

The standoff between House Democrats and Trump’s lickspittles in the Senate
was a focus of coverage.

Michael Cohen credibly accused of Trump of witness tampering but this got lost
in coverage of the #TrumpShutdown.

Friday we woke to news of the indictment and arrest of Roger Stone.

Read Mueller’s Indictment of Stone on LawFare

This was followed by Trump’s capitulation to Nancy Pelosi and the end of
a month long shutdown of the Federal Government.

Trump got no funding for his racist wall.

01/25

I’ve added Steven Colbert to the list because I think his political monologues are brilliant.

On a personal note, I’m coming out of a lengthy funk, and feeling good.

A Note Regarding Pro-Putin Comments on my Blog

Bloggers who blog about politics inevitability attract Russian trolls.

Now that Americans knows more about Trump’s involvement in the attack on the United States, it’s safe to say Pro-Trump propaganda is Pro-Putin propaganda.

I won’t allow Putin’s useful idiots to use the comments section of my blog as a platform.

That’s right, I censor bullshit.

I’m willing to have intelligent disagreements.

Cheap backwater racism and divisive pro-Russian bilge are not
intelligent or worthy of discussion.

I know the history of the United States is littered with crimes, but I have
never seen an American President high-five a monarch who ordered the butchering  of a journalist.

 

Here’s my rule on readers who leave pro-Putin propaganda on my blog as a comments:  I will blacklist your comment and use is as an example of propaganda and ‘ambient gas-lighting’ so other bloggers will know to
remove them too.

Example 1, was left in response to my post, Are you Obsessed
with the News:

Russina propaganda as comments
Because you get your information from credible news sources you are complicit in advancing a globalist agenda.

The comment above does not address the news items in my post.  It deflects and uses ambient gas lighting to suggest that merely watching legitimate news outlets makes me complicit in an evil globalist agenda.

Example 2 was left in response to the same post:

Screenshot of trooll propaganda left as a comment
Everyone is pedophile except the man accused of raping a 13 year old girl.

Why would Putin’s trolls return to pushing a conspiracy theory in which Trump is a noble warrior against pedophilia?

With Trump’s pedophile friend, Jeffery Epstein back in the news, we may start to hear more about Trump’s alleged rape of a 13 year-old.

Article in the July 7, 2016 UK Guardian about rape allegations against Trump
screenshot of the court date set for a woman who claims she was 13 when trump raped her
On October 12 we learned that a court date was set for a woman who claims Trump raped her when she was 13.

I urge all of my readers who also blog politics to check their comments
and feel comfortable removing those that look suspicious.

I also urge you to study the NATO Handbook of Russian Information Warfare.

Don’t let the Russian GRU use OUR blogs to subvert American Democracy.
