Elected Republicans Think You Are Stupid

This just in: I have long said that the Republican Party is either (1) Not exceptionally bright or (2) They think you are not exceptionally bright.

I say this because they propose and say things that can be confirmed false with just a “little finger” worth of research.

Let’s take a look at a few…Note: I will not do cite evidence as to why these positions are false.  You get to do that if you wish.  Shouldn’t be hard to do.  Don’t go with your “gut”.  Look up any of these and find the facts.

  • “The Russia investigation is a witch hunt.”
  • “Tax breaks for the rich will trickle down and create well paying jobs for the rest of the country.”
  • “The healthcare system in the United States is the best in the world.”
  • “Pornography causes mass killings at schools.”
  • “Transgender soldiers are hurting our military readiness.”
  • “The rest of the world respects the United States more now that Trump is in charge.”
  • “Making abortions illegal will reduce the number of abortions in our country.”
  • “Cutting off family planning money will reduce teen pregnancies.”
  • “China will not use their ZTE company to spy on us because they said so.”
  • “Gun laws don’t work.”
  • “Nancy Pelosi likes the Mexican gang MS-13.”
  • “Climate change is a Chinese hoax.”
  • “Our Founding Fathers wanted us to be a white, Christian nation.”
  • “Health care works best in a Free Market”
  • “Football players that don’t stand for the National Anthem don’t do so because they are not patriotic.”
  • “Most legal scholars agree that Trump can pardon himself.”
  • “Tariffs are working.”
  • “Donald Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.”
  • “The poor are lazy.”
  • “The economy is doing well because of Trump.”
  • “Democrats are responsible for the separation of parents and children at the border.”

Of course…none of these are true.  But…you can believe they are if you wish.

Up, up and away…

Putin owns Trump…

This just in:  Before I get into the Putin/Trump thing…let’s just notice that the “Guns Killing Kids” issue has started to abate.  So now the NRA and Republican Party can get back to raking in Russian money.

As for Trump…

I have often wondered, possibly as often as several times a day….”How is it possible that Trump so consistently does the EXACT OPPOSITE of the right thing….every time he does anything?”

Could it be that he and I are exact opposites?  Possible, but it seems that we would agree on something every now and then.

But we never do…ever.

There is a reason for this that was recently divulged to Mueller who is investigating Trump.

It turns out that Putin told Trump not to make Romney his Secretary of State.  He wanted someone more friendly to Russia like Tillerson (Who Russia awarded with some sort of Best Friends Forever award).  Russia wanted someone that would help Trump NOT IMPLEMENT SANCTIONS.

Tillerson got the job.  Sanctions have not been implemented and Tillerson continues to cut away at the State Department; taking steps daily to ensure it is weaker than the day before.

So…was this the only thing Putin said.  Did it go like this “Just make Tillerson the Secretary of State and we’ll forget all about the decades you have worked with us to launder money.”  Is that what happened?

Or is Putin telling Trump daily “Do what I say or spend the rest of your life in jail.”

If I were Putin….I would want would love a trade war between the United States and the rest of the world.  I would love a U.S. president that praises Russia and refused to implement sanctions.  I would want a president that would not investigate Russian meddling in elections.

If I were Putin I would want turmoil in the White House.  I would want others in the White House that also launder money like Kushner so my reach would broaden.

I’d want a W.H. that would destroy the U.S. economy through unfathomably bad tax plans and budgets.  I would want divisive issues to be flamed; things like immigration and gun control.

I could go on and on but it is clear to me that either Trump is completely under Putin’s control or there are a heck of a lot of coincidences going on.

It is worth noting that our Constitution protects us from this by balancing power between the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches.  Out Founding Fathers, however, didn’t count on the possibility that a foreign power would control both the Presidency and Congress.  By Congress I mean, the Republican Party.

My prediction is that Democrats will take the house and senate in the midterms.  Mueller will finish his investigation and Trump will be impeached.  Trump will then refuse to step down.

What happens after that will be up to our generals.

Up, up and away…

Wait For It

This just in:  I have no doubt that Trump is problematic.  It could be the lying.  It could be Russia.  It could be the protectionism.  It could be the racism.  It could be the childish behavior.  It could be a lot of things.

What has been a bit of a mystery to me is how supportive the Republican Party is of this Orange Disaster.  How could they support someone that is so, so… Trumpish?

At first I thought, “They just want him for the Healthcare or Tax plan.”

Seemed reasonable.

But why do they continue to try and protect him?  Why are they sacrificing the FBI’s reputation to protect him?  Why are they continuing to turn their back on things like him profiting from his office or the nepotism, or the attacks on the Free Press.  Or his attacks on basically everything democratic?

Why?

Then something happened.

It turns out that Russia was funneling money to Trump through the NRA.

In 2016, the NRA gave $30 million to Trump’s campaign.  However, they also gave $55 million to other Republicans.

Where is the NRA getting this kind of money?

Turns out…they may be getting it from Russia.

What does this imply?

Perhaps, Trump is not the only person being controlled by Russia.  Perhaps some or even the entire Republican Party are connected as well.

My guess is that many are unwittingly being funded by Russia.  However, those at the top….they are well aware.

So….you heard it here first.  Let’s see how long it take before the news media sees this link.

I hope I’m wrong…and I probably am.  But it certainly explains a lot to me.

Up, up and away…
