Pain is still high.  On the plus side, I got to watch my Broncos draft an OT in the first round last night.  No surprises there.  It’s what they needed most.  Now if only Democrats would do that!

From YouTube (GQ Channel): What Would Trump’s Immigrant Ancestors Say? | The Resistance with Keith Olbermann

 

For the heinous crime of deporting Fredrick Trump to America and fouling our nation with his vile spawn, Bavaria deserves at least a nuclear strike, or even worse, government by Republicans. RESIST!!

From Daily Kos: This past May, while candidate Donald Trump was running over Republicans and we all were relatively unaware of the impending nightmare that would be November 8, 2016, Noam Chomsky was interviewed on Democracy Now! by Amy Goodman. He made this statement:

 

He’s right. But I’ve said that Republicans are mose dangerous for years and referred to the Reich as Al Dubya, before Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten. Here’s one example from 2010. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Education Secretary Betsy DeVos criticized the media on Friday for placing so much emphasis on Donald Trump’s first hundred days, because “it’s so darn hard to count to a hundred.”

“I’m watching the news and they’re going on about a hundred days this and a hundred days that, and all I want to say is, ‘Who the heck can count all the way to a hundred?’ ” she said. “They’re acting like we’re a bunch of math geniuses.”

DeVos added that, if the media wanted to establish a benchmark for Trump’s achievement, “they should have picked a number of days that people can actually count to, like five or ten.”

Dang Andy! Considering what DeVos is doing to education, that will be true all too soon! RESIST!!

I breathed water into my windpipe last night by coughing at the wrong time and set off severe choking and gasping.  That undid the healing in my side, so my pain level is severe again.  ARGH!  The draft is tonight.  May the Holy Ellipsoid orb guide and bless your team, named especially my Broncos.

From All In: Bernie Sanders sounds off on Trump’s latest fiascos

Senator Bernie Sanders sounds off on the flurry of activity from the Trump administration, including its last-ditch effort to kill Obamacare and a tax cut plan that would give breaks to those who need then the least.

 

Spot on, Bernie! Boycotting the Fuhrer’s photo-op was smart!. RESIST!!

From Raw Story: Maryland Democratic U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings said on Thursday that President Donald Trump and his administration are “stonewalling” the investigation into retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia and lies to the federal government and doing everything it can to sabotage the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to the Russian government.

“Clearly the White House is stonewalling,” Cummings told Willie Geist of “Morning Joe.” “And I don’t use that word frequently because I try to give the benefit of the doubt, but they have not given us one shred of paper on him, not one syllable — after a bipartisan request was made for contacts that the general had with the Russian and Turkish governments and any kind of information that would lead us to understand how he was vetted and what the process was.”

Geist asked Cummings why he thinks the White House would still be covering for Flynn even after his firing.

“This situation is one that leaves me baffled,” Cummings said. “Here’s a man fired. Come on, now. Fired. He lied to the vice president but it seems that they have circled the wagons around him. I don’t know what this is all about, but I’ll tell you one thing. It leaves those of us who are looking into it, it makes us even more anxious to get information. And then it makes me wonder what if anything is being hidden.”

I think I understand. The more the truth about Flynn’s treason is exposed, the closer we will be to criminally exposing Trump’s treason. RESIST!!

From NY Times: President Trump told the leaders of Mexico and Canada on Wednesday that he would not immediately move to terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement, only hours after an administration official said he was likely to sign an order that would begin the process of pulling the United States out of the deal.

In what the White House described as “pleasant and productive” evening phone calls with President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada, Mr. Trump said he would quickly start the process of renegotiating Nafta — not abandon it, as he said he would do during the 2016 presidential campaign if he could not rework the deal to his satisfaction.

Now that NAFTA is in operation, simply terminating it would cause economic upheaval in all three countries.. It needs to be updated, but not in any way Trump would want to renegotiate it. RESIST!!

From YouTube (GQ Channel): Trump Wants to Ride in a Gilded Coach?! | The Resistance with Keith Olbermann

 

Actually, the Fuhrer may be stalking his owner. I bet he want’s that open coach, because Vladimir Putin [R-RU] got it first. He’s too vain to accept that he could get his ass assassinated by Brits. That would be problematic, unless he took Pence and others with him. Winking smile RESIST!!

From Daily Kos: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Donald Trump have known each other for 16 years. In September 2015, reporters spotted a Make America Great Again hat in Brady’s locker. Only days before the presidential election, Trump claimed Tom Brady endorsed him:

…When the Patriots won the Super Bowl in February, Trump was thrilled to see his future hall of fame backers win again.

A number of Brady’s teammates announced they would not attend the traditional ceremony at the White House honoring the Super Bowl champs. They did not want to meet or be seen with Toxic Trump. Patriots team captain Devin McCourty made the case for his absence, saying, "Basic reason for me is I don’t feel accepted in the White House. With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won’t."

…And today, on the day the celebration was supposed to take place, Brady is leaving Trump out to dry. The five time Super Bowl champion suddenly has better things to do.

Dang!! Thank you Holy Ellipsoid Orb! Now Brady isn’t the only one with deflated balls.

From NY Times: Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke dismissively about the State of Hawaii while criticizing a Federal District Court ruling last month that blocked the Trump administration from carrying out its ban on travel from parts of the Muslim world.

“I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the president of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and constitutional power,” Mr. Sessions said this week in an interview [Nazi delinked] on “The Mark Levin Show,” a conservative talk radio program.

 

In Beauregard’s defense, at his age, wearing his hood and robes interferes with his vision.  RESIST!!

It's a very busy day.  Wendy just left a while ago, and I finished my research.  I still have all my medical documentation to collect for my appointment tomorrow. And today is the highest Holy Day in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb.  Tomorrow please expect no more that a Personal Update, and that will be be published after I return.  Does anyone know if Edie is OK?

From Robert Reich: …Hmmm. Connect these dots:

(1) Yinnopoulos writes for Breitbart News, which Steve Bannon – Trump’s strategy director – ran before joining Trump.

(2) Before Yiannopoulos speaks at Berkeley, Breitbart publishes an article saying that Yiannopoulos will call for the withdrawal of federal grants and the prosecution of university officials who endanger their students with their policies.

(3) Berkeley opens its doors to Yiannopoulos, but campus police have to cancel the event because of masked agitators.

(4) Hours later, Trump issues a misleading tweet, accusing the university of not allowing free speech and promoting violence against innocent people with different views, and threatening to withhold federal funds.

(5) The next night, Yiannopoulos on Fox News says the incident proves that universities like Berkeley don’t deserve federal grants by cracking down on free speech.

(6) That same night, on CNN, I raise the possibility that Yiannopoulos and Breitbart could have been collaborating with the agitators – saying “I wouldn’t bet against it.” This generates a belligerent column in Breitbart with a misleading headline calling me a liar for claiming that Breitbart News organized the riots.

I don’t want to add to the conspiratorial musings of so many about this very conspiratorial administration, but it strikes me there may be something worrying going on here.

I wouldn’t bet against it.

Left wing anarchists are usually not masked. It sure looks like a false flag to me. Regardless of who was behind it, I condemn such violent behavior, as do Democrats everywhere. Progressives and Liberals deplore civil violence, unlike Republicans who encourage and endorse it.  Also, Berkeley officials had nothing to do with preventing the Nazi from speaking. They condemned the criminals too. RESIST!!

It’s another busy day, and tomorrow will be more so.  It will be a Wendy day with not only the dreaded task, but also, assembling a floor lamp and replacing a broken table.  And it’s the highest Holy Day in the Church if the Ellipsoid Orb.  I shall be meditating.  Normally I would not care who wins, but given the New England Traitors’ affinity for Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten, I want a bird shit bonanza!  Go Falcons!!!  Then I need to rest, because Monday I need to be in the lobby by 7:30 AM to be sure to make my 9:20 appointment with Megan.

From The Rachel Maddow Show: Trump tries rewriting history on disastrous raid’s planning

Colin Kahl, former national security adviser to Vice President Biden, talks with Rachel Maddow about how the Trump regime is distorting history in an attempt to shift the blame for a disastrous military raid onto the Obama administration.

 

Yesterday I told you Trump lied about how he murdered a Navy Seal and innocent women and children. Now you know what he did and how he lied about it. Where are all those Republican Benghazi bullshitters? RESIST!!

From The Last Word: What’s next for Trump’s travel ban?

President Trump’s executive order has been halted temporarily — but what does it mean long-term for visa holders? Lawrence discusses with constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe and ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero.

 

Now I wonder if the Fuhrer will even obey the court order. RESIST!!

From NY Times: President Trump on Friday moved to chisel away at the Obama administration’s legacy on financial regulation, announcing steps to revisit the rules enacted after the 2008 financial crisis and to back away from a measure intended to protect consumers from bad investment advice.

After a White House meeting with executives from Wall Street, Mr. Trump signed a directive aimed at the Dodd-Frank Act, crafted by the Obama administration and passed by Congress in response to the 2008 meltdown. He also signed a memorandum that paves the way for reversing a policy, known as the fiduciary rule, that requires brokers to act in a client’s best interest, rather than seek the highest profits for themselves, when providing retirement advice.

In short, when you hire a bank or equivalent in trust to represent YOUR interest, Republicans want to allow the bank to screw you to maximize their own profit.  We knew this was coming. RESIST!!

I’m still buried in chores, and I was feeling quite tired, so after doing my research this morning, I took an upside down cat nap, that Lona had sent from Oz.  As a result, I’m running way late and hurrying.  Today and tomorrow are holy days in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb.  My Broncos are done for the season, but if your team is still meditating, may they bask in the Orb’s blessed light.

From YouTube (TYT Channel): Bernie Sanders Destroys Trump From The Senate Floor

 

If course Trump was lying, and I said he was at the time he twitted those tweets. He’ll never admit it. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: An alarming report issued by heads of the U.S. intelligence agencies on Friday asserts that the Twitter account of President-elect Donald Trump was successfully hacked by a four-year-old child.

Profilers and cryptologists who studied Trump’s Twitter feed believe that the account was first hacked during the 2016 campaign, when the child was three.

“The hacker would often wake up in the middle of the night, in an addled and cranky state, and start tweeting,” an intelligence source said. “This disrupted sleep pattern is consistent with a suspect in the three-to-four-year-old age range.”

Sorry, Andy, I don’t buy it. The garbage that floods the nation from the Fuhrer’s Twitter feed is way below the emotional maturity level of the most socially inept four year old. RESIST!!
