  • Trump Is A BULLY!!!! WAAAAAH!!!!!

    by coldwarrior ( 76 Comments › )
    Filed under Donald Trump, Open thread, Politics, RINOcracy at July 31st, 2017 - 6:00 am

    Well, now that the Russia-aiding-Trump narrative has collapsed, onto the next thing! So what is the Next Big Thing? Well, it seems to be that Trump Is A Bully. Yessir, A BULLY, that is the meme-o-the-week from the left, professional message board trolls, and the nevertrump circle-jerk. He’s a BULLY, that word that has been overused for the past 10 years is now turned on the POTUS. We have been Bully-warned ad nauseaum for years now. One might conclude that ‘Bully’ is the biggest threat to education and healthy young adults EVER!  Millennials FEAR Bullies especially! BULLIES ARE WORSE THAN GLOBAL WARMING!!!!

    Since there is no ‘There’ there in the Russia brouhaha, the BULLY scary-word has been trotted out now that Trump has threatened to take Congress’ health insurance subsidies away so that they have to live like the rest of us.

    See, Obama’s HSS Secretary created these carve-outs to congress for votes for Obamacare. Well, the Secretary giveth, Amen and pass the hat, the Secretary taketh Away! These carve-outs aren’t law anywhere on the books. They are political favors from the Executive that can be removed at any time at the whim of the HHS Secretary or the Boss of the Executive, The POTUS. The bail-outs to the insurance companies are nothing more than life support for this already dead system. The Left is always concerned about sustainability, well, Obamacare in its current form is non-sustainable.

    I spent two hours on Sunday reading the leftyblogs and nevertrumper blogs and papers and am seeing a similarity that can’t be ignored. Trump threatens to take away Congress’ carve-out amd end the bribes to the insurance companies and both the Left and the nevertrumpers HOWL, “TRUMP is a BULLY” in unison, as if this is somehow coordinated between them. This use of the recently over-‘scary’ word is wayyyy too coincidental to be pure chance. They both howl that we are a nation of laws and Trump is being a dictator by threatening to take the law into his own hands…except this isn’t law…as explained above, and Congress should indeed live by the laws it passes and everyday, we see the uni-party just a bit clearer…

     

    I wonder what the next meme-o-the week will be?

     

    Obamacare was a brilliant move by the dems, sure, they lost power, FOR NOW, partly over it but it puts the government in full control over health care. 1/5th of the American economy run by DC! And tehn all you have to do is get juuuuust enough people addicted to it to make is damn near impossible to remove. The GOPe LOVES Obamacare, they collected money and votes for 7 years on the promise to repeal. No wonder the puritans and nevertrumpers got in the way of the beginning of dismantling it! Obamacare is a cash/vote cow for the professional ‘Con’servatives. Its never going away folks.

      Good morning. CW your point about the # Never Trump blogs is spot on. The self-described “principled conservatives” are de facto part of the Resistance. They now quote the,NYT and WaPo liberally. Lefties now
      make sense to,them. Anybody who dissents i.e. even sugessting that Trump,is not the Anti-Christ is attacked by
      pack. They have pet names for the President klike ‘Retarded Orange Babboon”. His supporters are referred to as
      stupid and cultists, Trumpkins, Trump Zombies and my personal favorite Trumpanzzies.
      Their real issue is that Trump defeated Cruz who they view as the new Missiah.

      As I keep saying, Trump really is a super hero, his super power is to make people take off their masks and show who and what they really are. The #NeverTrump people always were Marxist infiltrators working from the inside of the GOP to destroy it, Trump made them take their masks off and expose themselves.

      They play right into the MSM narrative. No accuasation against Trump is too ridiculous for them.
      The whole Russian Collusion crap,started because Putin gave Trump a compliment, and Trump gave him
      a qualified compliment back. The two men have never met.

      Bully my ass.

      What Congress is REALLY worried about, and what those of us who read on follow conservative media all along already know, is that the average citizen has now found out, thanks to Trump, that Congress exempted themselves from a law they stuffed down everyone’s throats.

      Which she STILL wouldn’t be able to locate. Even with both hands and a flashlight.

      I think that the whole charade of calling each Congressional office a “small employer” so that they would qualify for taxpayer subsidies is the biggest scam run on the taxpayer so far. Oh, and I’d LOVE to see what their cost per mont h is, what their deductible is, etc. When I tell those that just think “Health Care for ALL!!” the facts about Congress, they’re shocked. They don’t believe me. I said “look it up – they exempted themselves from the law to begin with – and then they got YOU to pick up the tab for THEIR staffers.”

      After they see the truth, they are PISSED. Our supposed “independent” media hid LIE after LIE about his from them.

      It was just last week – maybe the week before – that a woman called into Rush and said he had to start talking about that. He said “but people already know”. She said NO THEY DON’T you have to tell them Rush. So HE started talking about it and THEN Trump picked up on it.

      I don’t think most people know Congress and staff are exempt from FICA deductions, etc., either. The only reason I know is that Hubby was a staffer and he told me.

      The military is what the military is.

      I’ve known a brace of generals. Mostly two and one star types. ALL have been political as you do NOT get a star without being political. That said however they still retain the military ‘formation’ and character that got them their first and subsequent stars. They are process type folks who know how to get things done and aren’t afraid of doing the stuff necessary to advance the ball. The couple of three stars I know (one Kiwi and one US Army) were bastards but were ‘our bastards’ and STILL did what was necessary to advance the ball.

      With Kelly being a US Marine to boot gives me some confidence that he will force compliance and destroy anyone who refuses to knuckle under and do their job. There are too many ‘careerists’ looking for self promotion and seekers of power for power’s sake and their own ego massaging. Given that Kelly is a 3 star and therefore probably as bastard who knows how to make stuff work regardless of bruised egos and a Marine as well, I hold out hope that he will be effective in disciplining the ego-maniacs and self promoters within the Trump administration.

      The difference between civilians and military is the difference between Management and Leadership.

      Lead the way General and kick arse when needed.

      @ eaglesoars:
      Law makers everywhere have been giving themselves exemptions that the ‘little people’ don’t get because it’s part of the makeup of lawmakers to assume that they are part of an ‘elite’ who deserve special treatment because ….. well BECAUSE.

      This pernicious attitude is endemic in most politicians and has a direct artery pumping elitist justification, from their ego to their brain.

      This is what happens when politicians become ‘professionals’ and there is established a ‘Ruling Class’ separate from their constituents.

      SPIT!

      Roll on the ‘citizen legislator’ and the temporary politician, where the intent is to serve and not the aggregation of power and privilege.

      Term Limits can’t come soon enough.

      Trump’s winnowing of ‘Establishment’ staffers and would be power elitists such as Priebus, Spicer and now Scaramucci were more chiefs of staff and press secretary, they were also power elitists egotists clawing their way up the slippery pole rather than doing their jobs effectively. They were connected at the hip to the would be ‘power elite’ self serving denizens of the Washington establishment and those conduit to the donors / influence buyers, flacks and apparatchiks of the Uni-Party (Establishment GOPe and DNCe types) whose influence over politics and the economy Trump supporters seek to destroy. They were denizens of the ‘DC Swamp’ and citizens of the ‘Deep State’.

      By firing Priebus, Spicer and now Scaramucci, dilettantes all, (well Spicer just didn’t have the cajoles to do the job), Trump has sent a message, that only adults need apply for WH jobs, and personal agendas can be left at the door of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

      After six months of trying to behave like a typical Republican president, Trump has finished with the self promoters and appears to be looking for the Doers rather than the boosters. Trump’s opponents now include the whole gambit of the Establishment types from BOTH the DNCe and RNCe. In other words the Establishment elitists of the (Uni-Party). Code for …. THE SWAMP.

      It’s taken Trump six months to pay off those who facilitated the Trump victory but then expected their payoff in positions of money, favours and power. Agenda driven types who excel in campaigning are NOT necessarily those who make good administrators. Trump gave those apparatchiks who made the Trump ‘miracle’ happen time to prove themselves in positions of power within the administration. That period is now past and those who failed to make the cut are out and the ‘adults’ and the Doers are in.

      There is no necessity to allow her a visa.

      what a lot of people are not aware of about Kelly is that, among his many other previous stints, he was also the Marine liason to the House of Representatives.

      If Paul Ryan thinks he can put anything past Kelly, he’s about to learn a very hard lesson.

      yeah, color me surprised.

      not.

      Imran Awan was fired Tuesday by Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the same day he pleaded not guilty to a bank fraud charge in connection with a $165,000 home equity loan, authorities said.

      His brother Abid Awan, was employed earlier this year by Democratic Reps. Ted Lieu, Tony Cardenas, and nearly 30 more House Democrats as a “shared employee”, according to Legistorm, a website that tracks congressional employment.

      March 10 was the most recent end date for Awan’s employment under both Lieu and Cardenas, records show.

      Lieu made headline in February for releasing a “how to” guide to help members of the Trump administration leak information to the media.

      Everyone Must Now Go Thru Kelly, Including Jared And Ivanka

      The White House said Monday afternoon that all senior aides – including Donald Trump’s family members – will report to new chief of staff John Kelly.

      The move marks a change in the West Wing, where first daughter Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner, chief strategist Steve Bannon and other top officials have all enjoyed Oval Office walk-in privileges and direct access to the president.

      ‘General Kelly has the full authority to operate within the White House and all staff will report to him,’ press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday during a late afternoon press briefing.

      Asked if that included Kushner, Bannon and other heavy hitters, she replied: ‘That includes everybody at the White House.’

      Kelly retired as a 4 star. He was commander of US Southern Command


    24. 25 | July 31, 2017 7:58 pm

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      Agreed. He also finds himself surprised at the level of true ignorance of those that listen only to the MSM – they ge. It is amazing to me when the lovely libs counter any allegation made on Twitter with “that’s been debunked” or “that’s been shown to be a lie” and then, when asked to present a credible source or a link for the claim, cannot do so. Whereas ask most conservatives for a link and they’re ready. And not “Lannie Ferguson’s personal blog”.

      Chris Murphy, who is all butthurt over the threats by Trump should simply be advised that Trump’s also got a “pen and a phone.”


    25. 26 | July 31, 2017 7:59 pm

      @ Aussie Infidel:
      But why did he even bother moving Scaramucci in to the position anyway? Political payback?

      It at least makes things look disorganized. Trump needs to clear out Obama people at State, and get these other positions filled ASAP.


    26. 27 | July 31, 2017 7:59 pm

      @ eaglesoars:
      Most Military Leaders I know are BOTH optimists as well as cynics.

      They hope, and work their arses off for the best, but know that shit happens regardless sometimes, and folks don’t always measure up, including oneself. But that’s OK as well because true leaders know that there will be plenty of other occasions where with luck, the plan, perseverance, and sheer bloody mindedness will come together eventually and they will lead the way they know that they can.

      🙂

      There is nothing like a plan that comes together and that is only topped when your soldiers bust their arses for you, and call you ‘Boss’, in the field. You know in no uncertain terms when you are ‘leading’ and getting it right

      Department V up to their old tricks again in Dupont Circle. The more things change the more they remain the same!

      FBI agents and one U.S. intelligence officer are reportedly claiming that the death of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s media czar in Washington, D.C. in 2015 was no accident, contradicting official U.S. government claims.
      Putin’s media czar, Mikhail Lesin, was found in his hotel in Dupont Circle with injuries to his head, neck and body on November 5, 2015.

      “Lesin was beaten to death,” an FBI agent said. “I would implore you to say as much. There seems to be an effort here to cover up that fact for reasons I can’t get into.”
      “What I can tell you is that there isn’t a single person inside the bureau who believes this guy got drunk, fell down, and died,” the agent added. “Everyone thinks he was whacked and that Putin or the Kremlin were behind it.”
      These FBI agents revealed that the Department of Justice had paid for the hotel Lesin was staying in because officials wanted to understand the Russian news network RT operated. An intelligence official told BuzzFeed News that Lesin essentially was a defector, trading secrets in exchange for protection after he had fallen out of Putin’s good graces.
      “He contacted the Justice Department and the FBI through a third party,” the intelligence official said. “He was worried about his kids and their safety so he wanted to cooperate.”
      Lesin died the evening before the interview.

      There is nothing quite as hopeless as a would be defector who ‘plights his trouth’ to some agent and gets knocked back and told to go away.

      The stupid bastard is then between ‘the rocks’ of rejection and the ‘deep blue sea’ of being subject to a 3AM knock at the door by his former comrades.

      There is nothing quite as forlorn as an individual who decides to change horses in mid stream only to be rejected.

      Beastie’s failure to win that election has now laid the groundwork for all the little Obama dung beatles to face the can of Raid.

      The VA has struck again. I had to go see a tech because I was having hearing problems. Well, it turns out that I had a wax plug in one ear. But, something was also going screwy with my hearing aides. The tech said she’d put in with the front desk for an immediate appointment so I wouldn’t have to walk around deaf. After several days of not getting an appointment call I called the VA back. They hadn’t heard a thing about an appointment. Finally today they called me and said they were setting up my immediate appointment. The immediate appointment? October 27. I have to go around deaf for almost 3 months because of the way the system is set up. I can’t even wear one of my hearing aides because it’s doing the opposite of what its supposed to (muting sounds around me). Oh, and the wax plug? Yeah, I think I’ve finally managed to take care of that myself….after nearly two weeks of trying and waiting for the FIRST appointment at the VA.

      I wish they would get this obamacare crap destroyed so maybe I could afford to take my healthcare elsewhere.

      somebody needs to tell these geniuses that there’s a button on the top of the can you have to push to actually spray the stuff. Right now all they’re doing is waving a can around. I’s not impress.

      WTF is Ryan up to now?

      House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) called for action on President Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in a video he tweeted out on Tuesday.
      []
      “That’s why we’re going to get this done this week,” he added.
      []
      In March, during the push to fund the federal government through the rest of the fiscal year, Ryan said Congress would deny the administration’s request for additional funding for the wall from the Department of Homeland Security.

      He’s so full of shit. My guess is he’ll pass something in the House he knows will fail in the Senate and say hey, whaddya gonna do?

      That’s the guy on Tucker who is a Calexit guy, just said they want to export the middle class because it makes room for poor immigrants.

      those are damned near impossible to get. you have to be first in the digital line.

      great venue, great acoustics, and a nice view of the city.

      yeah, we ‘punks’ are gonna get a nice dinner and then see the show.

      Don’t know what it means

      Things ain’t what they seem

      But he wants to keep US bases and troops in California. He wants the US to pay the new nation of California rent,
      and Camp Pendleton was specifically mentioned. He needs to do some research, Camp. Pendleton was ceded to

      FBI Director Christopher Wray Confirmed, Five Democrats Vote No

      Christopher Wray was confirmed as Director of the FBI on Tuesday almost unanimously, save for the historic no votes of five Democratic Senators.

      Wray was confirmed late in the afternoon by a vote of 92-5. Among those voting against him were rumored Democratic presidential hopefuls Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.).

      Also voting no were Sens. Ed Markey (Mass.), Jeff Merkley (Ore.), and Ron Wyden (Ore.).

      Wray was nominated to the position after President Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey. He immediately earned praise from Senate Democrats, including from Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.), who complimented Wray during his confirmation hearing.

      Tried. They said there is nothing that can be done. We have one audiologist and he rotates with another facility. I suppose if I pushed hard enough they could send me to the big facility in the state (in the capital, not here in the largest city), but it involves several hours travel and an overnight. I’d be reimbursed but its still one hell of an inconvenience.

      I’m just going to keep treating my ear, and hoping that maybe one day my hearing aides start working correctly again. I have to get a call in to start the process for my optometrist too, that’s in October and historically veterans choice screws me up for three months. (I’m also supposed to have heard from my doctor about my chiropractic, but he hasn’t been returning my calls.)

      Yeah, Veteran’s Choice has to get the orders from my doctor before they can act on anything (and then they just screw it up anyway). I’ve written both Senators and my Congressman and two of the three have been looking into it for the last year or so. The third one is a moron and doesn’t know how to do anything but send form letters that aren’t connected to my concerns. (At least his staff does, it’s kind of like Kindergarten, they don’t let him handle the important stuff).

      I’m just going to be patient. Veterans Choice is possibly going away around February and maybe some other reforms will take place around that time.
