15 January 2020: Happy ITMFA Day!



"Right now, we need to treat Trump as if he is irrelevant.

To think that he is not a Manchurian Candidate soothes the senses, it furthers the belief that it could not happen here, to us, that we couldn't be that Duped by someone the likes of Trump, but then again, to neglect to realize the ever-more-apparent reality of his sick, twisted and criminal reality TV world, itself is a failure of imagination, much like when and what it was like to be largely caught off guard on nine eleven for a good amount of the same poor reasoning.  But we must seek to be open and honest with ourselves in light of the bare facts, and we must bathe in the light of Truth rather than yield to Trump's darkness, corruption and lies.

Not much to our credit, he is one of the dumbest criminals ever, for we must, with greater urgency than any due accountability and reprimand, whatever the form it takes, we must harden our future defenses, to any ensuing malevolent cunning, so as never to be Duped again, as we collectively decide to Unite and determine our future course while we put this nightmare—no, opportunity to awaken—behind us and move always upward."

~  Michael Oatman, 16 October 2019

 


 

Is it Regicide?  Do you support the constitution or are you in favor of a king?  A King wants his heirs to succeed him in power.  A King is above the law.  And no one is trying to kill Trump, at least just yet, unless and until we try and convict him for treason and place him before a firing squad, which will undoubtedly contain 21 bullets, rather than the standard three.

Trump is not a king; rather, he is a kleptocrat.  His only aim is to enrich himself, using the office of the presidency to assist him.  There are many like him in Russia.

Should he agree with any policy, it is only because that policy is in alignment with his aims to enrich himself.  Where it does not align (Kurds, Russia, Iran, Paris Agreement, etc.), or, and this is interesting, where the policy was instituted by someone with whom Drumpf has a grudge (there are so many, but Obama, for instance, from the 2011 Press Corps Dinner) he will toss out any policy in favor of one which favors his corruption.

But this is even more dangerous when combined with his foreign personal allegiances to certain brash and/or authoritarian leaders, in the likes of Putin, MBS, el Sisi, BoJo, Un, Xi, Erdogan, Bolsonaro and Duterte Harry to name a few.  For instance, in this latest round of 2020 election meddling, Sharky-cat has been asking leaders of various nations not only to dig up dirt on the Bidens, but he had requested that Ukraine fall down into the rabbit—or rat—hole of an investigation into the discredited conspiracy theory that it was Ukraine—and not Russia—who was behind the 2016 election rigging for Trump.  On its face, it sounds just like another one of those Trump-just-can’t-let-it-go-moments, where he wants to be vindicated in that Russia didn’t help him win the 2016 election (they did).  But why switch the blame to Ukraine?  This still means that Drumpf had help winning the 2016 election, just not from Russia.  Well it turns out that some of the US sanctions against Russia were put in place due to the 2016 election meddling by Russia, and is in part preventing Russia from rejoining the G8.  So Putin wants these sanctions lifted, right?  So he gets his Orange-Crush to become a *LITERAL MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE* and do a foreign leader’s exclusive bidding for him, namely for Vladimir Putin, by essentially extorting Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky into researching the nutted-out conspiracy theory the it was Ukraine, and not Russia, that was behind the 2016 election meddling on Facebook and wherever else, in an effort to reduce sanction and get Russia back into the G8.

Now, considering that it is established that not only, by his own admission (and many “So What”s later), that he asked a foreign leader (it is against the law to ask any foreign national) to participate in our presidential election coming in 2020, that he had Rudy Giuliani find some Ukrainian thugs to help him out, you can clearly see that not only did Trump *TALK* about rigging the 2020 election, but he covertly appointed people to carry it out.  This is not just “Russia—if you’re listening…”, and then, “Oh, I was just joking.”  And really, what this means is that he was not joking then either.  The leopard cannot change his spots.

And not only that, since this chicanery spelled out above is only Drumpf helping himself, but here now we have this situation where it appears that he is actively doing the bidding of a foreign leader (Putin) trying to accomplish the goals of that leader, even though those goals may run counter to the goals of these united States of America, the country to whose Constitution Donald J Trump did swear an oath to uphold and protect.  And then we have this deal with Erdogan and the Kurds, announced by no one before hand, and agreed to (people are saying that Trump got “rolled” by Erdogan, but I think it’s more than that) over the phone with no outside consultation that we know of (Putin, were you listening?).  This is a deal which hurts most obviously the Kurds, but all US allies and the US standing in particular.  It helps ISIL and Erdogan, but it helps Putin too in that it allow Russia more flexibility in Syria, but it actually helps Trump since he has—and he admitted this himself—a conflict of interest in Turkey, pertaining to the “two, not one, but two, most of the time it’s one, but there’s two” Trump Towers IstanBULL.  The Kurds are now enlisting the help of Syria rather than US and it looks like Putin stands to benefit, first by being the peacemaker, cleaning up our Thug-In-Chief’s messes, but also by gaining more influence in the region.  Then there's the question of what to do with the fifty or so nukes we have in Turkey, not to mention how to contemplate the future of Turkey within NATO.  All of this confusion benefits Putin, as will the resolution should we pull US and NATO out of Turkey.  Beyond a doubt, Trump is clearly Putin’s Puppet.

Also, if any US military service personnel get injured or worse—killed—in Syria right now by either ISIL forces or even Turkish ones, as they are hastily and chaotically (disorderlily?) retreating to safety, presumably to our base in Turkey, or Israel or Iraq, due to the fact that Trump had ordered the retreat and gave Erdogan the de facto “green light” to invade Syria, is this not Treason by the current Resident of the White House, given the definition of Treason?  Is Trump right now giving comfort to ISIL by allowing them to escape prisons of war?  Has Trump just committed Treason?

Definition: In Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution, treason is specifically limited to levying war against the US, or adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. Conviction requires two witnesses or a confession in open court.[2]

Penalty: U.S. Code Title 18: Death,[8] or not less than 5 years' imprisonment and not more than life imprisonment without the possibility of parole (minimum fine of $10,000, if not sentenced to death).
Any person convicted of treason against the United States will permanently lose the right to ever hold or run for public office anywhere in any capacity within the United States.

Manchurian Candidate in 2020 anyone?

SO DO YOU PLEDGE YOUR SUPPORT, EITHER:

FOR THE CONSTITUTION: as those who would take an oath, like all members sworn to office or military duty, or those who would receive citizenship; or,

FOR ONE MAN: as those like Bill Barr, Mike Pompeo, Rick Perry, Moscow Mitch McConnell, Mike Pence, Rudy Giuliani, Rand Paul, and many others have done, who may be acting solely in the interests of himself and other authoritarian leaders?

Well, if you support one man over our Constitution, I’d like to suggest that you move to China, or perhaps North Korea might be better suited for your tastes.

Well, what’s taking you so long?

 



I want to live in a world which is free of authoritarian dictatorialism.  I also want to live in a world which has been freed from the catastrophe of global climate change and Extinction, and I want there to be constructive and profitable societal engagement opportunities abounding.  I would like that ideas, theories and working models are recognized on their merits alone and are popularized by their usefulness, and that corruption, suppression for economic gain, cronyism, nepotism and self-dealing are not only discouraged, but remedied by their cessation and public rebuke and disposal.  Drumpf and his ilk neither do represent nor will provide any of these things.

 


 

 

.                                         We Are #Squad!                                         .


The Columbia School of Journalism, which is responsible for producing the guidelines for the authority of newspaper writing, has yesterday changed its position on the words, "Racism", "Racist" and the like, so that no longer are these words to be construed as a matter of opinion, but rather a matter of fact.  This is a truly outstanding day, and will be resolved to the annals of History (Herstory), on Drumpf's Day 909 of this current Residency (which is numerologically interesting to note, given 45).

                                       So, who is a Racist?                                       .
