Assault 1: Military on Border – the TIPPING POINT

                  A: BOSSMAN’S Snookered Followers vs Mattis’

Assault 2: Justice Department

                  A: Un-Constitutional Attorney General

Assault 3: Judicial Branch

                  A: John Roberts

Assault 4: Press

                  A: Credentials and new Rules

 Assault 5: The Deadly Spy Game

                   A: Saudi government using Israeli spyware “Pegasus” from NSO Group

 Trump is attempting the rape of all branches of government.


Legislative, Congressional, Judicial all at one time. Oh and throw in the military for some excitement.

I did not see this coming. I thought he would take one action at a time.

He has the executive branch. But he is now taking a brazen takeover of the Department of Justice.

He believes there is no one will oppose him. He has had Mitch McConnell in his pocket all year.

Matt Whitaker does not have the constitutional certification to operate the Justice Department.

Will the Senate get a backbone to correct this? I doubt it.

But if the current situation continues there will not have to be a motion to protect Mueller. Mueller is taken out of play.

Trump has a direct pipeline to the investigation since Whitaker is only his mouthpiece and tunnel rat into Mueller work so he can move at this own pace. This could be to wait until the Mueller report is sent to him, rather than Congress, and stir the southern border to activate the Snookered Army. 

What do you think?

And Trump has said he will decide issues that arise.

The Military is assigned the southern border. Due to posse comitatus, they cannot engage in law enforcement activities and yet…

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of Trump’s Snookered Army, making their way to the southern border.

Is this Trump’s strategy for getting the military involved in a firefight so that he can assume martial law or some other maneuver that hastens his power grab?

However, they have strung concertina wire which I see as a function of law enforcement. Marching in place waiting for orders?

Today Trump issued orders authorizing the display of weapons and firing with lethal force. 

Today General Mattis countermanded those orders. And has said, as of now, he had not received formal orders.

Trump this morning labeled the 9th Circuit as ‘Obama’ judge.

Justice John Roberts shot right back with “We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” Roberts said in a statement. “What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.”

The flashpoint was November 7, 2018, when Trump recalled Jim Acosta’s press credentials

A Trump appointed judge reinstated them.

Trump immediately established new rules for all Washington press corps.

Follow-up questions will be not allowed. While seemingly innocuous they will have the effect of stifling the freedom of speech.

The turf is marked off.

The Constitution defines the rules of engagement.

Now, will the Armies show?

Trump will. He has spent two years maneuvering to get to this place.

 It appears the Supreme Court and therefore the courts are joined.

 The Fourth Estate is already in the battle and they are spoiling for a fight.

 The military has fired the first salvo in standing up to the Commander in Chief.

 The big question is, as it has been all year – where is the United States Senate?

 Trump has tangled them into knots of ineffectiveness all year.

 As I have postulated, I think there are Senators who depend on the stipends offered   by Trump’s supporters.

Why has Senator Rand Paul, who was anti-Russia suddenly determine Russia was playing nice after his trip to Russia? There are others.

Other senators have also softened their stance.

Also, Trump has his 30 million or so ‘allies’. These allies are ‘his base’. his “Snookered Army”.

They have silenced a few people and encouraged them to lie down their arms and cease their opposition to Trump.

In some cases, this was accomplished by threatening force.

Trump has laid out his positions.

He wants control of :

The executive branch and the Senate (he lost control of the House in the November mid-term elections), and the Judicial Branch.

 He has appointed 2 Conservative Supreme Court Justices and 29  of the Courts of   Appeal and 5 District Court Judges. There are a total of 179 Judges on the Courts of   Appeal and 673 district court judges.

Don McGahn served as Trump‘s White House Counsel and was primarily responsible for the appointments Trump has made to the federal bench.

Trump’s pretentions have him controlling the federal courts but even his recent appointees such as  Kavanaugh have ruled against his actions.

Two REALLY BIG ace cards Trump is using:

The Senate is starting investigations into Comey and Clinton (you thought 2016 had moved on?). I have not seen this on the official calendar as of this writing but keep your eyes open.

Trump is preparing to use (if he hasn’t already done so) a neat spy tool that Saudia Arabia is using on it’s malcontents.

This spy tool is called “Pegasus” and was “the creation of a highly secretive, $1 billion-valued Israeli surveillance dealer called NSO Group.

This tool is able to silently hoover up private information on a target iPhone, from WhatsApp chats to emails and can spy on people via their smartphone’s camera and microphone.”

The Saudis have used it on a well-known dissident. Ghanem Al-Masarir

Ghanem Al-Masariri Forbes
Ghanem Al-Masarir  Thomas Brewster

is a YouTube comic and satirist based in London.               

A question is:  Will Trump rape his dissidents and journalists using this tool?

The relationship between Israel and Saudi Arabia is coming into the open. Trump has remade the players in the Mid-East to line up against Iran. Will Iran and Russia be strong enough to hold off Israel and Saudi Arabia.

What is the United States place in the re-alignment?

If Trump is somehow taken out of the picture in 2020 where does this leave the world?

An issue arising from the ascendence of ‘strong men’ is “What happens when they are overthrown?

I expect in the coming days we will see even more swords being brandished and flames coming from the mouths of each party until there is one huge pile-up on the steps of the Supreme Court. The diversion.

What Trump is setting in motion is best described in a comment to Washington Post article “Troops Approved to use Force, but Mattis says the mission hasn’t changed” by Missy Ryan and Paul Sonne. The commentator  istherenojustice
posted in the Washington Post article dated November 21.

Is there a place where Trump thinks he will win all of his arguments?

The Congress, The Fourth Estate, The Judiciary, The Military, The Immigrants, The NSO Group with Pegasus, The Snookered Army.

The pieces are in place.

Time will tell.

Duke SkorichI stole his post

The image was from Duke Skorich’s Post

November 15 at 8:42 AM

@realDonaldTrump this morning:

“The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess. They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts. They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want. They are a disgrace to our Nation and don’t care how many lives the ruin. These are Angry People, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller, who worked for Obama for 8 years. They won’t even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side. A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY!”

Robert Mueller did not work for Obama for 8 years. He ran the FBI under George W Bush for nearly 8 years. He remained FBI Director under Obama for 4 years, confirmed to extend his 10-year term by a Senate vote of 100-0.

Trump the asshole Facebook Image by Fake President

After last week do you understand the road we are going down?

All available air is being sucked out of our consciousness and we are not paying to the REAL TRUMP!

All available airtime is being sucked up by trump and his trumpbutts. (Did you notice how I slide part of the title of my blog in here?)

All available funds will be sucked up to fund the wall & the deficit.

There will be no funds for banks to lend to businesses.

Social Security and Medicare will be robbed to fund the government since that money will be going to pay for the WALL, the MILITARY BUILDUP, the NEW SPACE FORCE, funds like the BAILOUT of industries decimated from the TRADE WAR.


Oh, and have a nice day.

The fascist government now being built will soon take possession.

The Democrats will fight these expenditures and when the two heads collide the MILITARY WILL BE ORDERED TO Take OVER PEACE-TIME DUTIES (because nobody stopped the deployment of active military to the southern border more and more active duty troops will be deployed to quell internal unrest).

Did I recommend that you have a good day? My, my I am getting forgetful?

By the way, that is the format for the coming fascist takeover.

Little by little these will come to pass.

Little by little the alarm bells will be quieter and quieter.

Little by little they will be rung with less and less frequency.

One morning you will wake up and your coffee will be very bitter.

Meantime rake more weeds to stop forest fires!


Just for chuckles, I copied the first headlines I read on Facebook Posts this fine Sunday morning.


GOP senator: It’s a ‘great idea’ to make it harder for ‘liberal folks’ to vote



In non-satirical piece, McConnell stresses virtues of bipartisanship



GOP senator: It’s a ‘great idea’ to make it harder for ‘liberal folks’ to vote



San Francisco to clear all marijuana misdemeanor convictions dating to 1975



Trump plots to cancel research into curing diseases like Alzheimer’s



US election turnout highest for 104 years



Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin says bloodshed may be needed to protect conservatism



Trump pretty much just admitted that he picked Whitaker to kill Mueller’s probe



More than 14,000 immigrant children are in U.S. custody, an all-time high


Before I continue leading you down the “primrose path”

primrose path
phrase of primrose
the pursuit of pleasure, especially when it is seen to bring disastrous consequences.
“unaware of his doom, he continued down his primrose path”
I included the definition of ‘primrose path’ so you can not accuse me of leading you astray.
One more thing before I continue. I need to define the term “BOSSMAN” in the title of this post.


But you need the full flavor of the definition to appreciate it’s meaning:
A term used to describe a man, precisely God (a.k.a. Negusflex), that commands raids on various media pages. These raids can be observed on Instagram, Youtube, Twitch and other platforms.
Who are we raiding today? I don’t know, let’s see what bossman says.
by dwizzle25 July 19, 2018
Get the mug
Get a Bossman mug for your papa Trump


That is the problem. Nobody is taking any of the things that Trump does as weird, nasty, unseemly, corrupt, sadistic, mean, violent, crazy, demented.


Did you happen to see Fareed Zacharias this morning? His GPS program focused on the trade program or its lack by trump.



You must watch the third one if nothing else you do today


To review:

1: Bossman is positioning the United States to live WITHOUT CHINA.

I forecast that China can get along without the United States. The United States      CANNOT get along WITHOUT CHINA.

2: Bossman is positioning the United States for a medical meltdown. 

The FLU in 2017 killed 80,000 people in the United States

The FLU in 2018 killed 80,000 people in the United States

3:  Bossman is saying that FLU shots are a scam

I forecast his position should kill more trumpbutts than Non-Bossman supporters

Trump is telling his people that Flu Shots are a scam Facebook Post

4:  Bossman appointed a new Director of the CDC

I forecast that more trumpbutts will die because this director will reinforce trump’s position on FLU shots.

I forecast that more LGBT people will die because of this director.


New Director of the CDC Facebook Post

5: Bossman is going to spend massive amounts of dollars on his pet projects: The Wall; The Space Force; The Military Buildup; the Bailouts he will finance due to his Trade War with China.

I forecast that he and the trump party will drain Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid

6: Bossman will harass journalists and people representing us in the House of Representatives.

I forecast that this harassment will begin to have a deleterious effect on the work of the Fourth Estate and the Congresspeople.

You can hold my feet to the fire but I will stick with my forecasts.

I have been correct in the broad strokes of my pen since I starting harping on our fascist leader back in May 2016 BEFORE he really got cooking.

My concern back then was that he and Bannon would wreck our country.

I believe that Bannon is still in the background running the strategies that Bossman executes.

I forecast that Bossman will continue to crank up his vicious attack on the consciousness of the United States.

I forecast that trump and his trumpbutts will get even more vicious on the attacks of ordinary citizens. I site Joe Biden getting a German Sheperd. Why?

Is Bossman going to send any assistance to California to help with the recovering from the fires?

I doubt it since the outgoing and incoming governors are Democrats and many newly elected representatives are Democrats.

I have so much to add but I should start another post. This one has gotten too long.

A Tribute to Senator John McCain reprint August 25, 2018 upon his passing.

A Tribute to Senator John McCain

Dated November 10, 2017

Liberty Medal 2017 presented to Senator John McCain by former Vice President and Dear Friend Joe Biden October 16,2017
Liberty Medal 2017 presented to Senator John McCain by former Vice President and Dear Friend Joe Biden October 16,2017

On the Occasion of Receiving the Liberty Medal

Awarded by the National Constitution Center

Presented by former Vice President, Mr. Joseph Biden

October 16, 2017

Well, the first part of this Tribute wasn’t as short as I expected it to be. Remember the great moments when I regaled you with tales of boot camp in Missouri at Fort Leonard Wood (we recruits called it Fort Misery)?

The Awareness

I was warming up to my story of John McCain. As I left my tale of the Army in my rearview mirror of life, one day I saw a news program. I watched in awe? horror? shock?

I can’t think of the word but probably all of them.

On the news soon after March 14, 1973, I saw American soldiers deplaning.

The news anchor explained these men had flown from Germany. They had been released from Prisoner of War Camps in North Vietnam.

You may remember it was months prior when I lived through basic training at Fort Leonard Wood Missouri.

Our night on bivouac still weighed on my mind.

If I took our two days on the miserable adventure and multiplied it by five years the result is 1,825 more nights that Mr. McCain spent in captivity with torture always as his companion.

Later, much later, a more detailed account of the horrors of the Hanoi Hilton and other camps emerged.

It wasn’t until much, much later a complete (as will ever be told) was let out of the bag.

Now, single file down the ramp, a salute to the flag they had served for such a long time in captivity (for John McCain is was more than five years!).

I suffered through eight weeks of basic training. These guys numbered their suffering in YEARS!

The Tribute

On Monday, October 16, 2017, Senator John Sydney McCain of the great state of Arizona was awarded the Liberty Medal by the National Constitution Center and presented to Senator McCain by a dear friend and former Vice President of the United States, Mr. Joseph Biden.

The medal was awarded for his lifetime of sacrifice and service to the Nation.

He began his remarks, after a short period of ribbing with Joe Biden (they had served in the United States Senate together), by recalling another Liberty Medal Award ceremony in 1991.

He was attending the ceremony at the War Memorial at the USS Arizona in Hawaii. The recipient of this medal was former President George H. W. Bush.

President Bush’s remarks were emotional and heartfelt as he, was a WWII pilot in the Pacific. He had to bail from his aircraft over the Pacific Ocean.

Mr. McCain related that Mr. Bush, who with a choked up voice concluded his remarks “May God bless them. May God Bless America, the most wondrous land on earth.”

Mr. McCain then recalled the story, a version of which I had heard at a young age.

A story which shaped my life and my times indeed as his-story shaped these United States of America.

“We are blessed, and we are a blessing to humanity in turn. The international order we helped build from the ashes of world war, and we defend to this day, has liberated more people from tryanny and poverty than ever before in history. This wondrous land has shared its treasures and ideals and shed the blood of its finest patriots to help make a new, better world. And as we do so, we made our own civilization, more just, freer, more accomplished and prosperous than the America which existed when I watched my father go off to war on December 7th, 1941.”

The Statesman

Then Mr. McCain began the most telling part of his remarks.

“To fear the world we organized and led for three quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the  last hope of the earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems are as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history. We live in a land made of ideals at home and their champion abroad. We have done great good in the world. Leadership has its costs, but we have become incomparably powerful and wealthy as we did. We have a moral obligation to continue in our just cause, and we would bring more shame on ourselves if we don’t. We will not thrive in a world where our leadership and ideals are absent. We wouldn’t deserve to.”

(Now, dear reader, you may not know the spirit in which these words were given, nor the actions and words that led Mr. McCain to deliver them. I will address these issues a  blog to follow.)

I will not take away one iota of the adulation due to Mr. McCain. I would beg your patience with one more thought regarding Mr. McCain.

He is not just a former POW or a six-term Senator from Arizona.

He is a Statesman of this Country. The order “Statesman” is not granted lightly or frequently.

Indeed it won’t even be given in Mr. McCain’s lifetime.

There is no greater honor Mr.McCain lived for than the two great moments I was privileged to witness.

The first was when, as the last Republican Senator voting, he cast the vote to snatch the victory from the Republican Party’s wicked attempt to disembowel the Affordable Care Act.

The next were these words that will ring around the globe to face all of the wicked, evil and immoral attempts to change America from a leader to an America that falls to its lowest common denominator.

This is the time to honor a great Statesman. We were honored, learning from and hopefully passing on to our children, the sacrifice, and service – the life of Mr. John Sydney McCain.

Undoubtedly, the brain cancer robbing him of years that should be devoted to peace and leadership, of shepherding the men and women that will follow him, will now be lost.

There will be more opportunities ahead to witness his love and devotion not only to this great country but the special place in which he held his constituents, the people of Arizona. Join with me as we witness the great resolve and inspiration that is shown by a true ‘Statesman’, Senator John Sydney McCain.

Thank you for your service, Senator John McCain!

For your service in the United States Military, in the United States Senate and in private life. You are a role model to this generation and the upcoming ones.

I am sorry about your illness. Sorry for those of us that remain. Hopefully, we will have strength and intelligence to fight this most pernicious war that very many don’t even know, yet, that is being waged.

Shalom! (God is fighting for Your Peace)


A Tribute to Barack and Michelle Obama


Dated November 10, 2017

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama in a casual close up pose

Thorny Issue Found and Solved

My birthday is coming up soon and I’ve been trying to think of something to give myself.

Do you find it true that the very best presents are the ones you give yourself?

I have no need for fuss nor muss. Just go out and get it.

Well, there is one thorny issue – the money part. Always the nastiest thought that can ruin a buyer’s dream. So what to do? What to do?

I know, since I am in this writing frenzy  I will be writing a present. I can be as syrupy a writer as I want to be. As truthful, or not, as I want to be. Great idea!

I am going to address it to the most courageous man I know. More so after today as all of his enemies lined up to be shot down. (I hope!)

He also possesses some really fantastic traits that mark him as a renaissance man.

A Polymath man, which means a man whose expertise spans a significant number of various subject areas, (referring to the Renaissance period).  Meaning a man that is well versed in many subjects, a wonderful raconteur.

Much more than that though.

A storyteller of the highest order. He can fascinate children and pose serious questions for deliberation to adults.

This man is well taught, well educated, well spoken. He has high intelligence and a fascinating way of delivering a speech.

Always poised. Always alert. Always listening.

Yes, I can see that man in my skin. But, it isn’t me.

The man I am promoting that gets to enjoy my birthday present to myself is none other than Barack Hussein Obama.

Actually, it will be a web blog post.

The Background

Mr. and Mrs. Barack and Michelle Obama are classy people.

They are intelligent, soft-spoken, engaging people.

He was the most excellent president I have known or studied.

He didn’t hop from project to project.

He had a vision of what he wanted to accomplish and if it had not been for an recalcitrant Republican Party he would have had an even more remarkable record of accomplishments.

As it is his accomplishments are unmatched in recent history.

Michelle also has a keen intellect and knew what she wanted to accomplish.

She chose several areas primarily with children such as obesity, a major issue with black children and arts education. At every opportunity she was working on those plans.

I was pretty bummed when he was out sailing in Hawaii and windsurfing with Mr. Branson.

I had to stay back in the continental US with the uncouth lout that followed him and is destroying everything Barack accomplished. I have recently learned that he shared his loutishness with any number of Republican donors and Congresspeople.

I had known that the Mercers and another couple were not impressed with Barack but I did not grasp the depths of their animosity of Mr. Obama.

I also didn’t know until this week that when word got out,  almost every Republican donor was telling the congresspeople in his or her pocket that they had better get tax reform done or do not darken their doorway with hands out looking for a donation.

I even read where one donor had already turned down requests for fundraisers due to the loss of the ACA repeal.

Well, that is enough of the crooks that now reside in the People’s House.

The Obamas look of greater stature when compared to the boors we now have. Enough said.

Citizen Wisdom

I was concerned that he and Michelle would just fade off into the distance only to be seen on occasion.

However, they have established a foundation.

The mission statement of could be “we’re going to build a working living center for developing the next generation of active leaders of the world.”

They actively solicit each person to “let us know what’s on your mind, what good citizenship means to you, and what you want this Foundation to be.”

Here are a few clips from the Foundation’s brochure where people can share their thoughts:

“Good citizens care about others, about causes bigger than themselves, understanding that helping others be stronger helps everyone, even themselves.”

Beth D., Plainfield IN

“I believe citizenship is about having a deep love for one’s community and the willingness to be engaged for the greater good”

Eve M., Brooklyn NY

“We are all better because we have women leaders and women who build each other up”

Debra S., Lubbock TX

The Biography 

Barack Hussein Obama II is an American who served as the 44th President of the United States of America from 2009 to 2017. He was the first African-American to have served as president. (Wikipedia)

He was born on August 4th, 1961 (his current age is 56) at Kapiolani Center for Women and Children, Honolulu Hawaii. He was graduated from Occidental College and Harvard Law School. He taught Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago Law School.

He was born to Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr. He is 6’1″tall.

Michele LaVaughn Robinson Obama was born on January 17, 1964. She is an American lawyer and writer who was First Lady of the United States from 2009 to 2017. She was raised on the South Side of Chicago and is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School.

Mr. and Mrs. Obama have two daughters, Malia and Natasha (better known by her nickname Sasha).

This material is from a biographical description of Barak Obama. It is so well written I won’t try to improve on it ;-). But I will condense it when possible. This must be the official short version since it has “The Office of Barach and Michelle Obama” printed at the top.

Few presidents have walked a more improbable path to the White House. Born in Hawaii to a mother from Kansas and a father from Kenya, Obama was raised with help from his grandparents, whose generosity of spirit reflected their Midwestern roots.

The homespun values they instilled in him, paired with his innate sense of optimism, compelled Obama to devote his life to giving every child, regardless of his or her background, the same chance America gave him.

With the help of scholarships and student loans, he moved to Chicago where he worked with a group of churches to help rebuild communities devastated by the closure of local steel plants.

“That experience honed his belief in the power of uniting people around politics of purpose, in the hard work of citizenship, to bring about positive change.”

In law school, he became the first African-American President of the Harvard Law Review.

He then  returned to Illinois to teach constitutional law at the University of Chicago and to begin a career in public service, winning seats in the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate.

“He took office at a moment of crisis unlike any America had seen in decades: a nation at war, a planet in peril, the American Dream itself threatened by the worst economic calamity since the Great Depression.”

Through all the obstructions thrown in his path his leadership helped rescue the economy, revitalize the American auto industry, reform the healthcare system to cover an additional twenty million Americans, and put the country on a firm course to a clean energy future – all the while overseeing the longest stretch of job creation in American history.

On the world stage Obama’s belief in America’s indispensable leadership and strong, principled diplomacy helped wind down wars in Iraq and Afganistan, decimate al Qaeda and eliminate the world’s most wanted terrorist.

He is credited with negotiating the shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program, open a new chapter with the people of Cuba and unite humanity in a coordinated action to combat changing climate.

In times of great challenge and change, President Obama’s leadership ushered in a stronger economy, a more equal society, a nation more secure at home and abroad.

An email from the foundation “” recalls his request in his farewell address as President.

“I’m asking you to believe. Not in my ability to make change, but in your’s.”

He has faith in the ability of each person to make a difference in our world.

He and Michelle’s two decades of public service “demonstrated that the hard work of democracy begins not with government, or with parties, or with any politician, but within each of us.”

This is the guiding principle of the Obama Foundation.

“We are a working, living center for citizenship. Our goal is to develop the next generation of citizens; to shape what it means to be an engaged active citizen in the 21st Century.”

Michelle has said, “This will be your Foundation as much as it is ours.”

The people of the Foundation want to know what’s important to us as we build this Foundation.”

Thanks for stopping.
