Facing multi-trillion dollar deficits, early in the Trump  Administration, there are reports that Republicans have decided to blame their lack of fiscal responsibility, on Hillary Clinton. Had Clinton won the election, Republicans would have been able to retain their position as the party of fiscal responsibility.

The blame for predicted huge deficits in the near future must, therefore, rest fully on the shoulders of the losing presidential candidate.

Just as Sean Spicer showed his loyalty, to Donald Trump, his boss, by accepting his assessment of the size of the crowd at the Trump inauguration, Donald must accept  Putin's assessment of possible meddling, by Russia, in the 2016 elections.

“I’d like a shutdown”…” lazy or stupid”…”I’d love to talk to Mueller” and other pronouncements from THE MERCHANT OF MALICE.

The great Republican exposé supposedly indicating the lack of trustworthiness of the FBI is now officially fizzle as the report shows that Carter Page ( regarded by the Russians as an idiot) was under scrutiny long before the advent of the Christopher Steele dossier.The Republican jeopardizing of classifiable FBI information and the Trumpian overruling of FBI and intelligence community objections,with refusal to make public Democratic committee findings until now is more grist for the anti rule of law mill.The Merchant of Malice(MOM )still has 5 days to rule on declassifying the Democratic subcommittee report
Meanwhile the $130,000 paid to Stormy Daniels and the revelations about that, despite obfuscation,support Alfred Adler's " fingerprints on the glass" dictum making much more likely the verisimilitude of the salacious "Golden Shower" portion of the "Dossier".
The attempts to fire the Special Counsel will intensify and the promulgation of the Imperial Presidency against the rule of Law has dire implications for all rational,decent,believers in Constitutional Democracy.

Sometimes I really do feel sorry for Donald Trump. Here is an old man whose grasp, despite his greed,  is no match for his reach,  and who really could use some free legal advice.

His lawyers do not want him to testify before a Grand Jury or the Special Counsel but also do not want their client to plead the Fifth Amendment.

Rather than attempt to carve out exceptions to decided law, for their client, perhaps it would be  more productive to seek protections under other laws.  In Donald's case, it would seem that the Americans for Disabilities Act would provide adequate protections.

Nobody can deny an underlying pathology, when it comes to Donald, when taxed with the task of accurately attesting to the truth.  This pre-existing condition should defend Trump from any liabilities for avoiding  giving any interviews, in the same manner as he avoided military service with bone spurs.

This past week, despite a complete blackout of news from the U.S. Government, the American people learned, courtesy of Russian news services, that three top intelligence officers of the Russian spy services were in the U.S, despite being barred by sanctions, for meetings with the Trump cabinet.

There is speculation that the three Russians were here to do due diligence, in a proposed leveraged buyout of the American clandestine services.  Such a buyout would not only contribute enormously in reducing the National debt but would save billions annually in savings possibly making even more reductions in taxes, for our overtaxed corporations. 

There would even be an annual revenue stream from the rental of prestigious office space, resulting from the closing of Government facilities no longer needed.   The Trump Corp. would manage the properties under its imprimatur.  

Trump is said to be enthusiastic about these prospects, calling it a win-win situation.


Republicans who backed the ill-fated release of the Nunes memo, have offered the fact, as mitigating their lack of judgement, that they had not read it.  After all, reading was not a required skill, for the job, to which they had been elected.

I have learned three important things, this week, and it is only Tuesday:

  • Trump is the least racist person that I will ever meet.
  • Trump is the least sexist person I will ever meet
and most importantly:

  • Trump is the least truthful person I will ever meet.
