Yeah, I’m the king and don’t forget it…
This guy has to go, and I believe he will. And it won’t be soon enough…
I’ve started this weeks post 3-4 times and just couldn’t seem to get where I wanted to go. Ever since the President’s news conference Thursday (02-16-17), which seemed to border on the insane and the ridiculous, I have changed one lead-in after another. But today, a week late, I have gotten to where I needed to be.
His Majesty (so he thinks) Donald Trump…
First and foremost, this dolt-of-a-man understands little of the world around him. More-often- than-not, his answers lack any depth of understanding, and his relentless attacks on the media border on the ridiculous. The tougher the question, the more his ignorance and rudeness rise to the surface as he looks for ways to deflect the relevance of real questions and issues- so now he just blames everything on a “corrupt and dishonest media.” And then there are always his fall-back topics- The “huge” number of people on the Mall at this inauguration or his “great” electoral college win, or still yet “Voter fraud in the millions…” And let us not forget Trump’s criticism of Arnold and The Apprentice ratings… BIG news, international significance? BS!
When real issues are addressed, we are supposed to take comfort in the fact that- “Nobody” but nobody, can do anything better than Donald Trump. And there are millions who believe this line of crap to be true. Nobody? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
“Nobody” has a mouth like this guy…
In the end, I believe Donald J. Trump will be nobody, other than a has been…
“Nobody loves the First Amendment better than me…” Or maybe you’ve heard- “Nobody reads Bible more than me…” Then there is the ever popular- “Nobody respects women more than than I do…” These lines of self-unawareness play out like a music TV station pitching hits from the 50’s-60’s, as they scroll down your TV screen…
“Nobody’s done more for equality than me…”
“Nobody’s bigger or better at the military than me…”
“Nobody builds walls better than me…”
“Nobody’s stronger than me…”
“Nobody’s fighting for the veterans like I’m fighting for the veterans…’
“Nobody’s more conservative than me…”
Give this a play to watch and hear the master spread his BS___ http://www.scarymommy.com/nobody-does-things-better-than-trump-ever/ Its all pretty unbelievable; especially when one considers the millions of people who are buying into it.
The bottom line…
Topics like racism and anti-semitism continue to lead me to the conclusion that race and religion really aren’t a part of The Trump’s being. I say that only because he is so ignorant in so many ways. He shows no interest in learning anything, about anything, whether its about race, religion or the way our country’s military and intelligence services work. Yes, his daughter converted to Judaism when she married Jarred Kushner, but when Trump references that fact or reads something someone else wrote for him to say, you can easily detect that lack of understanding in his presentation. As for racism… probably got it from his father, the apparent, racist landlord. But the fact remains, in any conversation, its always about himself, first and foremost.
I think basically the guy likes very few people, and has use for even fewer… Unless they can do something for him. This sociopathetic, narcissistic, so-called President may be the worst, saddest and most dangerous thing to happen to the United States since 9/11. And yes, with all my criticism I do want him to succeed in keeping America great. But I’m quite sure he doesn’t have it in him. Only time will tell, if and when a real, non-partisan investigation into Trump and Russia unfolds. Let us keep our fingers crossed.
One last note… As Iraqi troops close in on ISIS troops embedded in Mosul, I will refer you to my blog post of October 19, 2017- “When will it stop…” which pointed out what I perceive to be a potentially, dangerous and incredibly serious problem. That would be the possible ISIS destruction of the Mosul Damn, just north of Mosul. Read about it here:

This week’s Newerd is- *The *GunsOfNavarro…
That would be Ana Navarro… One very bright, tough, and outstanding Republican Strategist who is not afraid to fire both barrels of justified criticism at our so-called President. Right from the beginning Ana Navarro has been appalled at the behavior of candidate Trump, and now POTUS45… And she’s not afraid to speak her mind. She is just another example of a party strategist who is so intelligent, articulate, well informed, opinionated, and way more than just competent. Here is a good example of The GunsOfNavarro, in action, when Ana is arguing with A “Trump Apologist” on CNN:
For those of you under a certain age, *The Guns of Navarone was an outstanding action movie released back in 1961, starring Gregory Peck, David Niven, and Anthony Quinn. It’s one of my all-time favorites. To learn more, click here:

Somebody lied? I can’t believe it! My White House doesn’t lie…
What’s a NeWerd?
NeWerd – A word or combination of several words or letters, written as one word, which describes a person, incident, or event, regardless of political affiliation, gender, nationality, or whatever.
With each new post on my blog, I will add a “NeWerd” or two, which may or may not have relevance to that particular blog. Whatever the case, it will have relevance to our world, at that time. If you don’t get it, just think of the word weird with the letter “i” removed. After all, Brokennews is about you and me and the world around us.
The NeWerd Dictionary will always be posted under link The Premise and above the link Recent Posts, wherever they might appear on your screen, depending on what device you are using at the time. So here we go with a few NeWerds...
Banbannon – Get rid of the crazy white guy! He’s the POTUS ventriloquist and he is really dangerous.Where are Ivanka and Jarred when we really need them?
Brokennews – An average Bob’s commentary about various aspects of the news, both good and bad, presented to us all-day, everyday. And although this Bob tends to gravitate to the Moderate-Liberal side of most issues, he is aware enough, and smart enough to differentiate between The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, when it’s shoved at us 24/7/365, by representatives of both sides of the various issues as well as by a news media that lacks the courage and or conviction to fight for the correct answer.
At the same time, Brokennews.press does acknowledge that since this viper named Donald Trump has come on the Presidential scene, many in the press have been known to muster up more courage and conviction in their approach to the news, to their commentary, their questions, and most importantly, their quest for honest answers. If it can stay that way from here on out, we all benefit.
DeVos – DeVos rhymes with Da Boss, a.k.a. POTUS. And neither has the experience or “education” required to support the very important positions they individually hold. Which student will flunk or be sent packing first remains to be seen.
Falsehood – Plain and simple… This is a real word, and it needs to be here, because lies are such a major part of who Donald Trump is. And even he doesn’t seem to get it… A falsehood is a lie, so let’s call it a lie. As in President Trump is a liar. As in Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer lie for POTUS.
FlynnFlam – Just more BS from an Administration that seems to live by the lie. And a former three star General, who was Trump’s national security adviser who first lied about speaking with a top Russian diplomat several months ago, before The Trump was even elected, and now conveniently can’t remember exactly what that conversation was about.
WOW! What an Administration!! A House Full of Liars, a President with apparent Attention Deficit Disorder whose brain power is rated at 140 characters, who understands little more than three sentences at a time, and can’t seem to ever address any Presidential topic in depth or with any real understanding. And a national security advisor with little or no memory. Great, just great…
So, Flynn-be-gone… Who’s next, and who knew what and when? Let’s all remember where that so-called buck stops. So when will Don-boy be gone? It can’t happen soon enough!!
KellyanneCon(which)way? – A person who knowingly reinforces false truths. A con? A falsehood? An alternative fact? Maybe a lie? What does it all mean? Not to worry, it will be partly taken back 2-3 days later. (Come on Kellyanne, you’re better than this… Dump The Trump.)
McConnell19 – An elected official who is afraid of the truth.
NeWerd – A word or combination of several words or letters, written as one word, which describes a person, an incident, or event, regardless of political affiliation, gender, nationality, or whatever.
Overtalker – Any person who tries to “talk over” the voice of another person who is speaking, by statement, by question or by answer, as part of a conversation. For example, The Supremo-Interrupter is easily Chris Matthews of MSNBC. But there are others for sure: Ben Ferguson, Katrina Pierson, Scottie Nell Hughes, just to name a few, regardless of party affiliation.
Prejudent – The current (so-called) leader of the free world, who repeatedly, unjustly, unknowingly or knowingly, and without remorse, spreads hate through a preconceived opinion based on ignorance, and not based on reason or actual experience.
POTUS45 – Pea-brained, Oblivious, Thoughtless, Uncouth, Sociopathetic… Yes, that would be President Donald. J. Trump.
Session(s) – Time spent trying to convince others that the lie you are putting forth on behalf of your “so-called” employer our your life in general is the truth. And that the N-Word means “never mind.” Or it could mean, not so, not true, or never happened… again, as it relates to who you really are, and what you really believe… Or don’t want others to believe or know about you.
SNL – Truth through humor… A check and balance and one of the most honest and straightforward commentaries on the world around us. And although we may laugh, there is not always humor in the truth. So thank you Lorne Michaels and all, for your honesty…
Spicier – When its Melissa McCarthy, and clearly more honest. Then again, when Melissa is Sean, her boss is Lorne Michaels and not The Trump. And even satirized accountability is often truthful.
Teletrumpter – Like the Teleprompter, a device used in television and moviemaking to project a speaker’s script, out of sight of the audience. The Teletrumpter is somewhat similar to a teleprompter, except it is larger, with slower moving words, larger letters and various yellow light signals up and down the right and left sides of the screen, indicating when the reader might smile, laugh, look stern, puff a lip, pout, sniffle or cry. The top and bottom of the screen have red light reminders, alerting the speaker or reader, to speak calmly, try not to slobber or spit, don’t stray from the script and ad-lib, don’t be vile or disgusting, and most important… Try not to lie too much.
Trumpeld – Bullied, pushed around, threatened, or trampled.
Transbender – Denoting or relating to a person whose sense of which direction to lean or bend does not correspond with his or her stated preferences or history. A person who is a mismatch between who they are, and those they wish to mislead or sway to a different point of view.
Sociopathetic – I’m sorry, but I am perfect, and I’m never wrong. And the fact that you see things differently is just beyond (my) comprehension. So bug-off or I’ll tweet a criticism about you and how you are over-rated, and a so-called American of Mexican heritage. And by the way… You’re fired!

The bottom line…
With some relevance to the “NeWerds” above, please consider the following: The first 3-4 weeks of the Trump Administration have been like nothing we’ve ever seen. Is it the beginning of the end? Probably not but we must pray that Don-boy doesn’t start exchanging threatening tweets with that young fella in North Korea. As for China and Russia, they’re flexing their muscles but both are smart enough to know that there will be no winners in any kind of war or major conflict. There is far more to be gained through working together in a civil manner, to maintain peace.
Our “so-called” President is ignorant. He lacks the intelligence it takes to hold the office of President, and repeatedly shows it by his lack of interest in learning and gaining the “Intelligence” it takes to do his job knowingly. He not only doesn’t get it, but he seems to have no interest in getting it. His tweets about a department store that has dropped his daughter’s line of clothes or jewelry during, or minutes after, an Intelligence Briefing seem to highlight his probable Attention Deficit Disorder.
The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming… There are continued references to a much deeper Trump-Russia connection than many in the GOP are willing to admit or explore. So I will reference the following link which will take you to a very recent Rachel Maddox commentary based on a well substantiated Washington Post Story. And if true, could and should lead to Trump and possibly Pence, both being bounced out of D.C. Click here.
All jokes and sarcasm aside… Yes there seems to be a good chance that President Trump knew about Russia’s involvement in many things which probably need to be investigated. What’s so terribly sad about this current President is that he doesn’t know or understand what he should know and understand about his job. Granted, he’s an outsider, with no experience regarding many issues of the day. But he is now Then President, and he really shows so very little intellect, understanding or interest in his job. He needs to understand it’s not about him. We can now only hope that his resignation will soon follow and that a brighter bulb will light the Oval Office.

Back in the day…
Two of these first three photos really were “Back in the day.” Back in my day… I’m quite sure I am older than many who read my blog. And that’s ok, for I am happy, healthy, and energized by the events of the day. And we all should be… For there is hope! But we all need to pull together and become more familiar with those events. And be assured that in doing so, its quite possible that you will have have a better understanding of many of those events, than our current President.
Now more than ever, its important to get involved. Find your niche! Maybe a demonstration, a march, a meeting, read a blog, a newspaper article, watch a TV show where opinions are expressed… Become more aware, and maybe even get involved. Help make a difference.
I hurt for my country… How about you?
So many people I know tell me they feel like their stomach is tied in knots. I get it. I feel the same way. Many local store owners are complaining their sales were off more than usual for a January. Of course, January is usually slow because people are paying bills from the previous two months. Tough winter weather can effect January sales, as well, but so far this year, at least in Chicago, the winter has been of very little consequence. So what’s going on?

January 21, 2017 Women’s March Chicago: (Source: flickr.com)
Prior to a Presidential election, businesses will often feel a slow period due to anxiety. I’ve experienced it myself and it has happened during more elections than I care to remember. But at times its not so bad when a president is re-elected- Reagan, Clinton, “W” and Obama. But this last election and the past three weeks are taking a toll.
Many people are feeling stressed, worried and uncertain. What The Trump and his ventriloquist Bannon are pulling off is beyond belief. This thin-skinned, sociopathic, dolt doesn’t have a clue. He worries about the size of the crowds at this swearing in. He tries to BS with talk of voter fraud. The first words out of his slobbering mouth at the National Prayer Breakfast are about how Arnold is not doing well on the Apprentice. And let us not forget incompetent and inexperienced Cabinet nominations, “The Ban,” and making it easier for the mentally ill to purchase guns. Give me a break!!
Look, I signed my name… (Photo: lifeNews.com)
I guarantee you that in the photo above, where he once again is showing off his signature, he has again signed his name to “changes,” he knows little if anything about. For this president, 140 characters are the limit, three sentences at best. So when The Trump criticizes a “so-called” judge, my money is on that judge, and not on our “so-called”, difficult to call, President. He is an embarrassment at best… To himself, his family, his party, and most definitely, our country.
The bottom line…
We need a common voice… That voice will need a face. We need a leader who can speak for the national movement(s) to get rid of this President… And he will be gone.
That leader should not be Bernie, nor Elizabeth Warren. They and others like them, who hold office, locally or nationally can do more good working from the inside. No it needs to be somewhat of a political outsider, who understands the inner workings of our government. I’m also of the opinion that it should probably be a woman, or a woman and a man team, of equal strength, drive, and knowledge. She or they should probably be in their 40’s with a background of major accomplishments and the courage to not fold when Mitch McConnell and others in the GOP, who know how to fight for what they want, go after them.
When I think about my “back in the day…” I think of Chicago and the 1968 Democratic Convention, and demonstrating in Grant Park. I think of the Chicago 7, and its members Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman, Rennie Davis, Pat Hayden, and others, who helped bring attention to an un-wanted and corrupt war. In the end, Johnson was gone, Nixon was gone, the war ended and 55,000 American men and women lost their lives for a war created with a lie called the Gulf of Tonkin. Gee, “a war created with a lie,” sound familiar?
We need leadership…
The Women’s March, Black Lives Matter, Indivisible, a.k.a. Dump The Trump, should become one movement with numbers and strength not seen since the 1960’s and early 1970’s. We must now go find the leadership to help pull it all together before we find ourselves in a bigger and more serious military confrontation… and especially before we find our inalienable rights Trumped away.
Bill Maher has been known to say, “Democrats should stop bringing a knife to a gun fight.” It’s true. The GOP knows how to fight the Democrats. Unfortunately, they didn’t know how to fight with Trump. And now we all suffer because of it. And my gut tells me that VP Pence, Speaker Ryan, Majority Leader McConnell and many, many others can’t wait to get rid of our “so-called” President. I’d even bet they have a plan in the works, which could include impeachment, or some sort of forced resignation. Read the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution and think about the possibilities. I’m sure a few in the GOP have done just that. Click here…
A voice? A face? Who knows? Get involved… Maybe it’s you.
