Trump goes Bonkers- In Syria and Everywhere Else.

Trump goes Bonkers- In Syria and Everywhere Else.
I have heard from our social media coordinators that Page Likes on Facebook have gone through the roof this week. This must be due to the incredibly intense political interest going on right now. A lot of it is the awesomeness of our Facebook personnel, who undoubtedly are the very best. But I think it also goes to show. Right now, things are at a fever pitch.
These days are made of pure history.
In circumstances where the president and a freshman Representative are trading blows as equals on social media, virtually nothing is unthinkable. This is molecular chaos. I have never seen anything like it. I don’t believe anyone has. There is no way of telling now where it could end. Once again, yet with eyes from which hope has faded, we look to our Republican countrymen for the help we will need to free our country from a tyrant. Because things have gotten worse every day that Donald Trump is running the United States of America. Just look at what’s happening in Syria, where once again, Trump has made a mess.
What else is new.
Recently Trump was tweeting about his “Great and Unmatched Wisdom” as if he were a Chinese emperor. Boasting like a pimp is always repugnant, no matter who is doing it; a gentleman I met last week at a bus stop informed me that “Pimps don’t get respect like that in jail”.
I found that comforting, at least.
Trump also has sent our Kurdish allies in Syria, who held firm with us in our fight against ISIS, tumbling under the wheels of the bus. One official said he caved. I’m sure it was pathetic; it always is. Why not go whole hog, if making ourselves a global joke? We should send Trump himself to the front line, and all the other evil celebrities with him. Harvey Weinstein, R. Kelly, to the front line. And Bill Cosby. And that a-hole Joseph Kony. Why not? Let’s Make An Army of One out of Subway Jared. Fight your record clean, boy.
Before when Trump withdrew us from Syria, many suspected he had cut a deal of some sort. He didn’t end up facing prosecution over what Robert Mueller found, even though Mueller flat out said he would have charged him himself if he wasn’t the President. I predicted at that time that we would see a Trump grown increasingly lawless and frightening. His alt-right leadership has long ago fallen by the wayside in favor of a young and power-hungry lot who have proven themselves willing to do anything.
There is just no knowing where it all could find a place to end.
The people just need to see that there is somebody somewhere who has a plan, and we at Millennial Democrats do, in fact, have a plan. It’s pretty simple, too. We get every sane and decent person we can find and bring them together as one. We can organize, stay calm, and bring everyone we know to the party. If that someone is us, so be it. Because shit is busting loose worse than I’ve ever seen it yet, and the talking heads on television aren’t making any sense to anyone. The people are completely bewildered, and sullen and mean in their bewilderment.
Collectively, we’re like a rattlesnake dumped out of a sack. We are all but blind and yet ready to snap. It’s dangerous. Everyone is saying that we’re living in historical times; who knows what will happen next. It’s like dumping a bag of Ping-Pong balls off a Windy City skyscraper, with a shout out to my people in Chicago, and trying to predict where they’ll all land. Everything is becoming so surreal.
The Chinese have an old curse that goes roughly, May you live in interesting times. I guess Xi must have been bored too because he just amped up his country’s cursed interesting level. Pictures of hundreds of blindfolded prisoners have been smuggled out of there recently.
In other news, Romanian hackers have joined the Chinese and Russians in their assault on the Millennial Democrats blog. Turns out Romania’s president Klaus Iohannis– who is in an election struggle with his country’s Social Democrats (the European equivalent of us American Democrats, and NOT to be confused with the disturbed moronism of Bern and his Democratic Socialism)- was here in late August, meeting with Trump at the White House. I really wonder what these people want to know so bad! Jesus! It’s been multiple times a day for years now. I know; I save all the emails.
Here is the email from Sucuri telling me this guy's IP address. I was startled to find out what would be on the other end! The top IT specialist in all of Romania has been trying to take me down. I'm not sure whether to be amused, flattered, or terrified. I guess there's a bit of all three.

Wow, I thought. Just- wow. He's got an entire university department to run, and still he finds the time to pile attacks on little ol' me.

The other night this Romanian guy named Alin Stefanescu tried to hack me. He hid his location by going through a TOR node, but somehow the good people at whois.com already knew him. This is him.
One of my many teachers-and the hacker trying to ruin me.
One of my many teachers-and the hacker trying to ruin me.
Interesting that I’d be able to find the actual name of the guy!
What really blew me away, though, was who he is. The guy is the head of the computer science department at the University of Bucharest. That is the best college in Romania, a nation world-renowned for the skill of its computer hackers and IT experts in general. I can’t tell you how surreal it is that a guy like that has been sicced on us by God knows who. I didn’t even know who the President was there until the other night.
This guy has an entire department of a university to run, yet still he finds the time to try and contend with me in these lengthy, endless, bruteforce attack and failed login attempts. Knock yourself out, guys, but be forewarned. WordPress is pretty good, it’s not just me you’re fighting. It is all of America, or at least most of us.
Even if someone is as big a fool as Lindsey Graham, who completely blew his hole about “Exposing the Whistleblower” and putting him in front of the Senate to testify, etc., it still proved impossible to turn a blind eye at Trump’s abandoning the principle of American security by leaving the Syrian Kurds out to dry as he has.
Tucker Carlson of Fox News made the opposite complaint. He was unwilling to defend Trump’s phone call with a foreign country’s president, Volodmyr Zelensky of Ukraine, but felt his weaseling and abandoning of allies in Syria was actually good.
Who knows where these people are coming from. Who knows where their hearts are. Hunter S. Thompson, who checked out in early 2005 rather than see what has been coming for a long time come to harvest, wrote in some of his last work,
“Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush? They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character. They are the racists and hate mongers among us—they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis. And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not. Fuck them.”

We respect Hunter’s legacy and his choice; furthermore, who among us in the Trump era cannot sympathize? Everything sucks!

However, although we may sympathize, we are not going to wallow in despair enough to empathize. We are not at liberty to go that route. Someone has to be here for the people; there have to be voices of reason in the crowd. Stick by each other, folks, and stick by us. If you’re a Democrat, you never need to go into a fight alone.

The Spartan 300 killed twenty-six thousand worthless Persians, weak and puny slaves of a dictator. That’s 87-to-1 odds.

Why? Because they were stronger! They themselves were bound tighter than any slave to code, an iron law made of principle and fearlessness. That’s us, Democrats. If you’re like most of us and have lived for no other reason than bringing this whole nightmare to an end, fighting 16 hours a day, you know what it is to be worth eighty-seven post-truth Trump slobs, addled and made slovenly by Fox News. We will never give up, never surrender, and never relieve the pressure. Not until the end.

“Go, stranger, and at Sparta tell/ That here, by Spartan law, we fell.” -Simonides of Ceos

Joe Biden Is A Good Man, Supporter of Bernie’s Slanders Does Not Change That.

Joe Biden is a good man.

When the news broke last week about Joe Biden being set on by far-left wolves over a hug, I’d have given my kingdom for a good strategy. Something like this is impossible to manage pleasantly. On the one hand, we’ve just seen the last of 2018, the Year of the Democratic Woman. The #MeToo movement won the Person of the Year award. On the other hand, Biden didn’t really do anything!

We have got to show the world we can perceive the difference between a legitimate sexual assault and-

Well, whatever this is.

For the record, at Millennial Democrats, we understand that it is very important that women be believed when they come forward with their stories.

For anyone who doesn’t understand the history behind that, it goes back to many decades, if not centuries, worth of female oppression. Symbolic of the situation were the countless rape trials in which the victim was put on trial far more than the man was, and that’s what we can never go back to. How many sexual partners has she had, how short was her skirt, et cetera. It was a sickening state of affairs, and no mistake.

Seeing rape culture wiped like the stain it is from human society is our goal, and we will fight for it with all we’ve got. #MeToo is significant, and it deserves our support.

That is why it has been all the more dismaying to see it weaponized, by the same callous right-wingers who built and have perpetuated American rape culture in the first place.

For make no mistake, this is just a hit job on the man most likely to be the next President of the United States of America- Joe Biden.

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. has been here for us for a long time. He served as the 47th vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. Like us, he is a member of the Democratic Party. He represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate from 1973 to 2009. He has made presidential runs before but ultimately ended up as Barack Obama’s right hand man instead, in 2008 and again in 2012.

Biden is a good man who has given his life in the service of the United States of America, and well worth supporting if he should end up being the candidate. As an aside, this article does not imply an endorsement at this time. It’s too early. But if, in the end, it is Biden, I’ll be very proud to stand behind his decades of expertise and experience.

Recently, a Bernie Sanders supporter named Lucy Flores accused Joe Biden of having given her- wait for it-

A hug.

I’ll respectfully pause here so that you can finish your horrified gasp.

Flores has not actually gone so far as to label this hug a “sexual assault” this week, claiming the hug was given on the campaign trail when she was running for Vermont lieutenant governor back in 2014.

That’s good, because even as it is, the amount of anti-Biden hatred being shouted around by Bernie’s crazy supporters is a disgrace. Making this appear to be a sexual assault, and acting outraged as though it were, is an insult to the legitimate struggles of everyone who has ever been sexually assaulted for real, from the beginning of time until now.

It is an absolutely rotten thing that this woman is doing, turning #MeToo into a poisoned dart, so much so that even her fellow residents of Bernieverse could not stay silent this time.

Tezlyn Figaro, who worked with Flores at Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) organization Our Revolution, has similarly felt compelled to speak out on Flores. From what it sounds like, she didn’t leave the best impression on her. She explained on “Fox & Friends” why she filed an EEOC complaint against her and why Biden should know his accuser is a “fraud” and a “racist”.

“You know, Vice President Joe Biden, if you are listening, you should know that Lucy Flores is a fraud,” Figaro said.

Tezlyn Figaro@TezlynFigaro
@morningmika U were right when you said shouldn’t we question political motives? Today I exposed the EEOC claim that I filed LAST year about Lucy’s retaliation efforts. After Lucy’s long history of schemes I am t/ONLY one that took legal action to fight back! @JoeNBC
Tezlyn Figaro@TezlynFigaro

#LucyFlores EXPOSED! This am on #FoxNews I EXPOSED the truth (backed up with the EEOC claim that I filed in August 2018) about #LucyFlores previous retaliation schemes. If everyone believes women then believe me when I say #LucyBLying #JoeShouldKnow #FraudAlert @JoeBiden @BillR

A lying Bernie Bot going for a Republican-style ratf*ck- Is this really still a shock to anyone?

We know Joe Biden! He is a good man, he has been a dedicated public servant. He has given his whole life in the service of this country. Are we really going to pretend like it’s okay to wipe that out over a hug? Never!

This is getting to the point of being a complete disgrace, just like it was when Roger Stone got Leeann Tweeden-a Fox News radio show host, no less- to try and call #MeToo on then-Minnesota senator Al Franken over an old picture taken on a comedy tour back in 2003 when the Iraq War was going on.

Franken resigned, too, and in my view, that was a big mistake. We needed him, we needed his voice, we needed his loyalty. They’ve been aiming to fell with snipers all the good Democrats they can, because they know we’re always going to be the ones in the way of their evil, wicked plans. At least we got Amy Klobuchar out of the deal, but still.

Tom Perez at the DNC summed it up the best. “People will judge Joe Biden by his lifetime of service,” he said excellently.

Do not buy in, America! We’ve got a guy on one hand who has treated women in a kind, gentle, and affectionate manner, and another guy who openly boasts of sexually molesting them, of using their private parts as something he can grab (to say nothing of Rape Fantasy Bernie)! Let’s make it clear to the world we can see the distinction.

Do Not Despair, America- Our Last Words From Senator John McCain.

R.I.P. Senator John McCain- a good and decent man.

America lost one of its very best recently, in the passing of John McCain. We lost a man with convictions, a man of courage.

A man who sat for nearly six years in a North Vietnamese P.O.W. camp, shot down in his Skyhawk and taken prisoner by the Vietnamese with four fractured limbs and yet still had the inner resources to come back from that so spectacularly that he was an elected American official within the next eleven months. We lost a man who voted with his conscience, instead of his unconscionable party. He will be sorely missed.

McCain was perhaps the last of a dying breed, a Republican with principles and decency. They called him the maverick, which pretty much meant that he cared about America. He was one of Trump’s most outspoken critics all the while that this was going on. At Millennial Democrats, we have looked at him as an ally. He was not among our number, but he was fighting for a lot of the same things.

He sure was worth about fifty billion of the malignant narcissist in the White House now.

McCain asked Presidents Barack Obama and George. W. Bush to deliver eulogies at his funeral, while Trump will stay away. He’s spent the whole event grousing about how McCain’s funeral coverage in the media is “over the top“, and wouldn’t even lower the flags to half-mast until the Pentagon got ahold of him ringing his bell.

He was probably thinking about his ratings, as if the death of one of the best Americans who ever lived would have come in second best, compared to the Apprentice.

Trump sent a cursory tweet on Saturday -“My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!” but mostly he just pulled childish garbage and turned the whole thing into a commentary about him.

He did not spare one word for the man himself. What a worthless piece of trash.

I try and leave these types of observations to myself, at the very least for decorum’s sake, but sometimes there’s just nothing else to say. Our president is worthless. Worse than worthless. He is actively corrosive. We would be better off pulling presidents at random as if it were jury duty, than we are with this thief who stole our 2016 election. It just kills me some days.

Good thing there’s a nice strong Blue Wave coming along to smash this debauchery of a man right into the ocean, and scour the White House clean again. On November 6th, when we Democrats retake at least the House of Representatives, we will have you in mind, Senator.

Do not despair of our present difficulties but believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here,” the Republican senator and former GOP presidential nominee wrote in a letter read by advisor Rick Davis on Monday.

“Americans never quit. We never surrender. We never hide from history. We make history. Farewell fellow Americans, God bless you, and God bless America.”

God bless you as well, sir. Thank you for all you did for us.

R.I.P. Senator John Sidney McCain III(R-AZ). August 29, 1936 – August 25, 2018.

Forever #NeverTrump- The State Of The Union.

Effigy

Millennial and most Democrats have made plans tomorrow evening.

A growing number of Democrats say they plan to boycott and otherwise protest Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address.

When Trump goes through the usual presidential motions, it’s important that we always are there to boycott it. We have resisted, and are going to keep resisting any tendency to normalize or accept his rhetoric and politics. The causes are innumerable, but some of the examples cited were reports this month that Trump questioned why the U.S. accepts so many immigrants from “s—hole countries” in Africa and that the U.S. didn’t need more people from Haiti.

Trump was going to fire Robert Mueller last June. 

Trump spent his MLK Day at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida. The only event on the White House daily public schedule was the flight that brought him back to Washington in the afternoon.

More than 60 Democrats skipped Trump’s inauguration.

Several Democratic lawmakers, like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, are planning to wear black, in honor of the #MeToo movement. Others have decided to boycott the address altogether.

Democratic Representative Gregory Meeks of New York said the following. “At every opportunity, he’s disrespected me and individuals who look like me,” Meeks told MSNBC on Sunday. “I cannot respect him.”

Neither can we, sir.

Democratic Representative Maxine Waters of California had the following contribution to make to the discourse.

“Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Walters said on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes on Jan 12.

“I don’t appreciate him and I wouldn’t waste my time sitting in that House listening to what he has to say. He does not deserve my attention,” Walters added.

Nor that of the rest of us, for that matter.

Democratic Representative Barbara Lee of California’s press secretary told KQED that Lee decided to miss the State of the Union even before Trump’s “shithole” countries comments.

There was ample reason to avoid even sitting in the same room with the man, long before he ever took office. Now that he is there, however, it has become an imperative.

Sean Spicer apologized to Trump for embarrassing himself in an interview today, and it’s true that he was spectacle during his time there. But it’s not his fault entirely. There was only so much he could do. Ultimately, his great failing was not being able to lie with audacity enough to fill the position’s demands.

There’s no shame in having a soul.

Trump is his own shame, of course, except that he’s too brazen to know it. He couldn’t even manage to print out his tickets right. Invitations nationwide were thus rescinded, to President Donald Trump’s State of the Uniom Address– yes, you read that correctly.

None of this is news to anyone, of course, and that’s the biggest reason of all why this is necessary. We can’t allow Trump to be normalized because he has done nothing to normalize himself. He shows no signs at all of wanting to get himself right. It’s unlikely he’d even be able to.

Democratic Representative Joseph Kennedy III, D-Mass., has been the one chosen to deliver the Democratic Party’s formal response to whatever Trump decides to spout out tomorrow night. Perhaps a happy glimpse of the future waits for us in that contest.

Until Donald Trump has been removed from the Oval Office, the State of the Union will be an obscenity. Those who know it must use this opportunity to speak out. If we all get together, we can make a statement about America that the world needs to hear. It’s clear the time has come.

 

Bannon Calls Trump Treasonous- President Sick With Rage.

Trump is unhappy.
Donald Trump is rumored to be in a New Year’s fury. Anger at his legal team for offering shifting timelines about when the Russia investigation would end seems to have gotten the best of him. And his divorce with Steve Bannon is said to have placed him near a state of apoplexy.

Many predicted that we were in for an interesting afternoon. We were not to be disappointed.

According to two sources familiar with the President’s mindset, the anger has continued.

It is said to have begun worsening around afternoon Wednesday. At the time, Trump was helping to draft his blistering break-up letter to former chief strategist Steve Bannon.

His recent interviews with author Michael Wolff delivered a brutal flaying of Trump, and his family.

Bannon’s characterization of Ivanka Trump as dumb as a brick is said to have enraged the president in particular. But what can you do? Divorce is always hard on the kids.

All of this has followed the criticism and ridicule his taunting tweet Tuesday evening directed at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has brought him. My button’s bigger than your button. Has it really come to this?

The rest of the White House was said to have been caught badly off guard by the whole situation, as was everyone else. It renewed worry worldwide about whether the President fully comprehends the risks he’s taking in adversarially provoking an insane dictator with childish taunts.

After Trump’s North Korea broadside, aides inside the White House reached out to some of Trump’s allies seen as having influence over the President to talk to him about his tweets and the risks they carry. Millennial Democrats would like to wish these aides the best of luck.

In the meantime, we found out today that in April, Kim Jong Un ordered the launch of a Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile that failed shortly after launch and ended up hitting the city of Tokchon, roughly two hours from the capital.

Since it’s North Korea, it’s hard to get much information, but it is probable that casualties were taken. Another key integer not reported was that the missile fell on an urban area.

They’ve been firing off missiles over Japan.

All it’s going to take is one stupid miscalculation and millions could die overnight, wiped out forever in one single blundering instant. But Trump does not seem to understand that and continues to risk nuclear war by pointlessly antagonizing Kim.

His recent out-of-the-blue decision to recognize Jerusalem is another potentially explosive example of this. Trump appeared to slur his words during the speech.

It is for this reason that yet another precedent has been broken by this president.

For the first time in history, members of the Congress have had to be briefed on the mental health of their president, and asked to keep it in mind when crafting laws.

In America, it’s an old lawmaker’s trick, proposing some ridiculously extreme or idealistic notion that could never possibly get passed, by way of making some point or another. But this trick is no longer safe to use. If some random crazy bill were ever to make it to Trump’s desk, it might actually get passed. This president is different.

Politico reported Wednesday that more than a dozen lawmakers last month met with a Yale University psychiatry professor for two days to discuss President Trump’s fitness for office, raising questions once again about the 25th Amendment, by which an unfit President can be voted out of the job by a majority of Cabinet members and the Vice President.

Dr. Bandy X. Lee reportedly met with the group of lawmakers on Dec. 5 and Dec. 6 and warned them the president is “going to unravel.”

Trump will sign anything. He will do anything. He is desperate to avoid boredom. Whims and caprice are all that govern his decision-making process. He has proven time and again that he will lash out at random when he’s angry. And right now he is very angry indeed.

He’s realizing now that his lawyers have been sugarcoating some very unpleasant truths, one of which was summed up by Steve Bannon quite succinctly.

Bannon referred to Donald Trump, Jr’s June 2016 meeting with a group of Russians as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic”. No doubt.

Breitbart News was a cornerstone of Trump’s alt-right base. and propaganda machine. When Trump fired him, it sent all of them a message loud and clear. I don’t need you anymore.

Trump also sent Bannon a cease-and-desist order today from making speeches about his time in the Trump machine, which is laughable.

Trump’s presidency is the biggest failure in modern American politics. It’s a lumbering, out of control golem that has risen to consume its makers. One way or the other, this thing has got to end. When even the likes of Steve Bannon come to realize it, it’s clear most of America is now on the same page. People are waking up.

The reality of the situation dictates that anyone with a sound and stable mind use it, to concentrate on finding a way of bringing this nightmare to an end.

But, yeah. Hillary’s emails.
