Yes, despite his best efforts to foment hate and divide America through word and deed, Trump ironically is uniting America! Not behind himself, of course; but in opposition to him and his hate. You know what he has said or done and continues now that he is a squatter in the White House. So there’s no point repeating it all again.
Instead, consider the response of ordinary people and religious leaders to our so-called president. The ones who refuse to accept the us versus them blame game. The ones who refuse to hate. The ones who have empathy and compassion–something which the would-be emperor knows nothing of and has never experienced at any point in his seventy years of life.
People carry signs at protest rallies and marches that say:
Love Trumps Hate
I am a Muslim (when they’re not)
Refugees Welcome Here
Or just fill in the blank from one you’ve seen or carried yourself
They undergo training to learn how to protect and support the undocumented immigrants. They open their homes, their places of worship and other sites for sanctuary to worried undocumented.
In Victoria, Texas (a town of 60,000 people near the gulf coast), a rabbi offers the keys to his synagogue to the imam of a mosque that has been destroyed by arson.
In St. Louis, a Muslim group sets up an online fundraising effort to pay for repair or replacement of 200 tombstones tipped over or broken in a Jewish cemetery.
Not only that, but all over the country, people are resisting the policies and executive orders established by Trump at the direction of Boss Bannon.
“When great evil occurs, great good follows,” said Nichiren in 13th century Japan.
It doesn’t happen automatically, of course. It requires the belief and the actions of people. We are seeing that in America today–thanks to the evil of Trump. In the end, America–and the world, will be a better place for all that Trump and Bannon do to destroy it.
After saying he would be working so hard (compared to Obama), our fake president is spending his third week in a row golfing in Florida. Nero fiddling as Rome burns comes to mind. It’s important that he goes–he needs that post-campaign rally to lift his spirits from the doldrums of defeat he’s been experiencing. So here’s the Eagle Peak version of fake news, or as Trump’s crowd would say, “alternative facts.” As always, most of what’s here is notCLAIMED AS TRUE, but you might find there’s a high level of probability that there are some truths here.
Forget George Washington and the cherry tree, here’s what Donald Trump said as a boy:
“I really think we should rent to those colored people dad,” a young Donald said to his father.
“I cannot tell the truth, no I don’t.”
Fred Trump replied, “Wonderful, Donny. You have a great future in real estate–you might even be president some day!”
Major donors have paid thousands of people to attend Florida Trump rallies. Fake news from the Trump regime is that these alleged “supporters” paid to get in. Actually, they were paid to attend and act excited about seeing their anti-hero–Trump. That’s not to say there weren’t some deplorables there who really idolize the fake president, but they’re no longer enough to fill the halls they way they once did. He can’t get sufficient ego massaging at the White House, so he needs a rally every few weeks to top off his praise deficit.
Speaking of a praise deficit, people are saying that Trump has an ego-app on his phone. Before and after tweet storms, Trump has been observed asking his phone, “Who is the smartest man in America?” The phone replies, “You are Donald.” He might ask, “Who’s making America great again?” Or “Who’s America’s most popular president?” The phone app always the same way, “You are Donald.”
Some commentators have compared Trump’s statements to the “doublespeak” of the Orwell book, 1984. They’re not quite correct. In 1984, the term applies to a word that holds two meanings at the same time–as “war is peace.” Trumpspeak, on the other hand, refers to statements that always mean only the opposite of what they ordinarily would mean. Here are a few examples:
“I am really smart” actually means he is dumber than dirt
“Make America first,” means “Make Trump first”
“I am the least racist person you ever met” means he is very racist
“I won the biggest electoral college victory in history” means that he barely exceeded the number of votes needed to win
“My administration is running like a fine-tuned machine” means it’s running like a lawn mower that’s been in a shed for three years and has been restarted with gummy gas in the tank
“Make America Great Again” really means “Make me richer again”
Don’t miss out, whenever you are at a political event anywhere and the name Trump or Flynn comes up, get in the swing of things and chant along with others, “Lock him up! Lock him up! Lock him up!” Recycle and reuse are catchwords of our age. So let’s revise the Trumpkin favorite of “Lock her up,” that Flynn and Trump himself, joined in shouting about Hillary Clinton.
Does any rational person really think that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn came up with his own talking points to Russian Ambassador Kisylak? Does anyone NOT think he discussed or got approval from Donald J. “Richard Milhous” Trump? Congress will demand that Flynn testify before their various committees. Will Flynn be a loyal soldier like G. Gordon Liddy–who refused to rat out Richard Nixon? Maybe, but maybe not.
“What did the president know and when did he know it?” Déjà vu washes over American’s over 50. Odd, hearing newscasters who were not yet born or who were young children utter this phrase. A phrase that was said countless times on a daily basis 43 years ago. The Watergate investigation became America’s obsession in 1973, culminating in then President Richard Nixon’s resignation on August 9, 1974. [I watched it in the student lounge of Georgetown University Law Center as I began my law school classes. Then major news anchor John Chancellor said no one in America was celebrating this event—he couldn’t have been more mistaken. I have never since had such a high level of schadenfreude—but I expect Trump’s eventual departure to exceed it.] More than 30 White House cabinet members, Nixon staff members and associates went to jail. It all began with a break-in at the Watergate complex headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in 1972. Those who went to jail included John Mitchell, Attorney General and chairman of Nixon’s reelection campaign. Others included senior White House officials like H.R. “Bob” Haldeman and John Erlichman.
Many have seen the similar personality flaws of Nixon and Trump, as well as contemplated the trajectory of a Trump presidency that very likely could follow Nixon’s second term. Enemies—the news media, Democrats, blacks and religious minorities; for Nixon it was Jews, for Trump it’s Muslims. Hubris is a common element. But Nixon had more paranoia with his megalomania; Trump has more narcissism with his self-aggrandizement. Nixon resigned in the face of certain impeachment and conviction. Will Trump face the same fate? Maybe. Or perhaps he’ll be out on a mental disability. It wasn’t the break-in that put so many Nixon associates in jail, it was the cover-up of it. Will it be the same with Trump? Could be the financial conflicts, Russia or any number of things. Flynn is just the first. More will likely follow, the longer Trump remains in office.
You didn’t have to be a Malcolm Nance, former Navy intelligence officer, to see the Michael Flynn situation coming. All you had to do was observe Trump’s behavior toward Russian generally and Putin in particular. Here’s some of what I said in my fake news (mostly to insulate myself from legal liability by claiming my commentary was true).
“On behalf of Benedict Trump, National Security Adviser Michael “RT” Flynn, called the Russian Ambassador five times on December 29th.Hereportedly said, according to a leak of an NSA intercept authorized by a FISA warrant,
“Don’t worry about Obama’s sanctions and those diplomats expelled. Once Trump’s in the White House we’ll roll them back and you can bring back as many spies—I mean diplomats—as you want.”
“Thank you, Comrade Flynn,” the ambassador replied.”
Of course no FISA warrant was needed; it was a routine matter for US counterintelligence to monitor calls to and from people like Russian Ambassador Kisylak.How carelessly stupid did a career US intelligence official like Michael Flynn have to be to in fact tell the ambassador that Trump might remove or lessen sanctions? VERY stupid. For that reason alone he should have resigned. No one that stupid should be in the position of National Security Adviser to the President.
“More breaking news on the Russian Front (Putin and Trump, that is). An anonymous source linked this NSA intercept of a recent call between Trump and Putin.
“Hey, Vlad baby, thanks for that smart move with the sanctions. That will make it easier for me to remove them after I’m in the White House–soon to be the Trump House, hahaha.”
“Donny, don’t worry about the sanctions Obama imposed. We can handle them for a while. Wait a few months before you remove them all–and the other ones about Crimea and the Ukraine. If you act too quickly, you’ll have trouble with Congress.”
“Are you sure you can stand them, Vlad?”
“Absolutely, Donny boy. Just remember, we’re always here for you. If you do get in trouble–like being impeached for conflicts of interest with all your business dealings, you can move to Russia. We treat our oligarchs very, very well here. You can make as much money as you want without annoying laws and regulations hemming you in. You could finally become a billionaire for real!”
“How about a reality TV show on RT?
“Sure, no problem. But you’ll want more than that won’t you? Resorts, casinos, golf courses and more–right? Just get rid of those sanctions in a few months.”
“Right. OK, but if I’m going to dump those sanctions, I’ll need approval for several projects up front. Donald Jr., will be in touch about them.”
“Sure, we can do that. But be careful about calls like this. We can’t help you if you go too far and get charged with treason!”
“Hey, I’ll be President. No conflicts. I can do whatever I want. Say, you really didn’t do that hacking did you?”
“No, of course not! You trust Infofarce, the National Enquirer, WhiteBark and Sean Insanity don’t you?”
“Oh sure. That’s why I don’t bother with those stupid PDBs. I’m smarter than those intelligence agencies!”
So DJT tweets that Judge James Robart (US District Court for the Western District of Washington) is a “so-called” judge because he ruled against Trump’s refugee ban. Let’s just refer to Trump as America’s “so-called President.” So SAD! After all, he lost the popular vote by nearly three million. He had the smallest inaugural since John Quincy Adams (oh, that’s an alternative fact–it wasn’t really that small, close though). Of course he also had a lot of help from his BFF Vlad and FBI Director Comey.
Speaking of that executive order, here’s a picture of the crew at the White House working on getting the order out and into operation.
MORE FAKE NEWS below. Any resemblance to alternative facts is entirely intended. To truth, not so much.
The so-called President of the US has, with the assistance of so-called Libertarian (but really more of a Log Cabin Republican) Peter Thiel, deployed an executive order app to be used in conjunction with his twitter feed. Henceforth, Trump will be able issue EOs on a daily basis with tweets to accompany them. Here’s a sample of some upcoming orders:
At the request of the NRA, a rule that anyone above the age of 12–who has completed an NRA gun safety course, will be able to purchase the following weapons for self-defense, as well as for hunting armored animals and mutant species of game following the alien invasion from space
50-caliber sniper rifles
AR-15 fully automatic rifles
Certain RPG and antitank weapons
EPA regulations prohibiting the discharge of any industrial waste products into rivers, streams or navigable waterways will immediately be suspended. This includes the following chemicals
Petroleum and petroleum-based compounds
Heavy metals and related compounds
Medical waste and sewage
Several anti-business elements of Dodd-Frank prohibitions will be eliminated, enabling banks, Wall Street firms and others covered by the law to make money the old-fashioned way–by screwing ordinary Americans
In another recent tweet, our so-called president has urged a boycott of Nordstrom and any other retailers that stop selling Ivanka Trump’s clothing or jewelry lines. [Nordstrom said it wasn’t in response to boycott threats by anti-Trump elements but poor sales of Ivanka’s stuff–oh well, guess disapproval is contagious]
Speaking of Ivanka, people are saying that she will join husband Jared at any future meetings where military actions are discussed and approved by her father. They will also be attending all state dinners, if there are any. Plans for such events have been on hold as prospective invitees have declined White House invitations after the refugee ban and the so-called president’s brusque and insulting calls to foreign leaders. Reportedly, Philippine President Duterte is the only foreign dignitary that has remained on an accepted guest list. If they ever do hold a state dinner, background music will include Sly Stone’s, “It’s a Family Affair.”
In another tweet, so-called President Trump has warned of “death and destruction,” if fake courts don’t permit him to ban foreign nationals from all professional as well as amateur sports teams that play in the US. Canadian NHL teams are up in arms, with some players overheard saying Trump should “go puck himself.”
UPDATED: Some Customs and Border Patrol agents may be going to jail or facing fines for refusing to obey Judge Brinkema’s order placing a stay on Trump’s executive order. That’s called contempt of court and Federal Judges don’t like it one bit. But hey what the hell does Trump care about laws, the US Constitution or the like. He’s the President–laws don’t apply to him. Here’s a link to just ONE of the stories about this abuse by CBP and the Trump administration.
Still doing satirical “Fake News” here. Is there a distinction between that and the alternative facts that the Trump empire puts out? Maybe, but I doubt it matters much. MOST of what follows is untrue, AKA fake or alternative. If I claim it to be true, you’ll know because I put a big T in front of it. We must hope and pray for the safety and survival of our democratic society and our economic welfare. Don’t give up! Fight back by calling, messaging or visiting your elected officials.
ALT FACTs below. None are deemed true unless indicated. BUT who knows, many could become true!
After his one-hour call with Vladimir “Puta” Putin on January 27, El Presidenté Trump issued the following executive order today:
All Federal publications must now come with a Russian language version. Additionally, all road signs in the Interstate Highway System will be replaced (on their ordinary maintenance schedule) with signs in both English and Russian. On an expedited schedule, international airports within the US must replace all signage and communication displays (including arrival, departure and other information) with ones in both English and Russian.
As a related matter, Trump has directed his Education Secretary nominee, Betsy “Devo” DeVos to develop a Russian language immersion curriculum for distribution to elementary schools across the country as soon as she takes office.
In the meantime, Trump son Barron will be taking a rapid learning course in Russian. Melania and the many adult Trump children will begin Russian language studies as soon as possible. It’s rumored that these steps are a precautionary measure should Trump need to quickly relocate to a dacha in Russia. BFF Vlad has promised the family sanctuary if ever needed.
We have learned that G. Gordon Liddy will introduce a showing of Leni Riefenstahl’s movie, “Triumph of the Will,” at the White House. As you may recall, Liddy played the movie at the White House for the “Plumbers” during the Nixon administration. This comes at the request of Steve “Butthead” Bannon. People are saying that Butthead may ask Liddy to come out of retirement to join him as a deputy adviser. On a somewhat related matter, two Butthead cronies from DarkFart (AKA Not-So-Brightbart) will be joining him at the White House. Here’s a little sample of Hitler’s propaganda video. Judge for yourself it looks or sounds familiar.
(A True sentence is included in this paragraph, in red color and enclosed within brackets.) At the same time, Beavis (AKA Donald Trump) issued another executive order providing that Butthead will be a [“principal” attending all National Security Council meetings while the Director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff would be invited to attend where issues pertaining to their responsibilities and expertise are to be discussed.]
So it seems obvious that Beavis prefers national security to be a matter of politics directed by the White Nationalist/self-described Leninist Butthead–rather than non-partisan experts.
People in Las Vegas are saying that oddsmakers have begun taking bets on how many months of his four-year term Trump will actually serve. Almost no one believes that he might resign in the face of impeachment or any other scandal, as did Richard Nixon in 1974. That would confirm him as a loser, something that he couldn’t accept. Rather, the bets people want to make are based on the prospect of these three reasons he might be removed from office:
Impeachment due to violation of the emoluments clause of the US Constitution (receiving financial benefits from foreign governments)
Impeachment for treason or other criminal offenses associated with his involvement with Russia.
Removal under Article 4 of the 25th amendment for inability to discharge the duties of his office. Why? For a mental disability—like dementia, Alzheimer’s or some other mental disorder. This can be accomplished by the Vice President and a majority of cabinet officials submitting such a declaration to the President pro tem of the Senate and the Speaker of the House.
The last of the three might be politically unlikely, but if he really pisses off the GOP leaders of Congress, it could happen. They undoubtedly would be happy with Mike Pence taking over. How off is Trump? Well all you have to do is listen to a few of his statements or read his tweets. Like the obsession about the inaugural crowd size. As Chico Marx said in Duck Soup, “Who you gonna believe—me or your own eyes?” Or the voter fraud–3-5 million people voting for Hillary
This just in: Trump is now saying he has proof from UFO experts that pod people cast votes for Clinton AND that those votes accounted for her popular vote win.
Or consider his problem of contradicting his own past statements, repeatedly. Is he lying or does he really not remember what he said? Does he even know the difference between fact and fiction? Is he already demented or is he simply a pathological liar. Hard to say. Either way, it’s a national security issue because the rest of the world won’t know whether to believe anything Trump says.

Darth Trump delivered another dystopian vision of America in his inaugural address. Crafted by Steve “Black Mind” Bannon, Darth says only he can save us from the “carnage.” How inspiring! Except, of course, the “rusted factories like tombstones” arise from the darkest visions of Bannon and the deluded mind of Trump.
Meanwhile Trump’s approval ratings upon becoming President of the US are six to ten points (depending on the poll) BELOWhis percentage of the popular vote. Voter remorse has already set in and is growing. The Women’s March on Saturday surpassed his inaugural attendance just in Washington, DC. If you add in the protests around the US and the world, they’re likely to be quadruple his inauguration crowd. He and his cohorts don’t think so. He blames everyone, but primarily the media for underestimating his supporters. See more below.
Trump may be a winner, having been installed as President due to his modest sized (NOT landside) electoral college win, but he constantly behaves as a loser. He whines and whines, about the least slight. A slight he perceives as more substantial requires a full-blown tweetstorm. He behaves like a toddler denied a toy or treat he demanded of adults. Such adults, of course, are not among his staff or advisers. They support and encourage his whining. Not only do they back up his whining, they have taken on his most annoying beliefs and behaviors as their own.
Sean Sriracha seethes about the inaugural crowd size reported by all the media. Sriracha nearly screams the bald-face lie that, “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration. Period.” [Imagine something like 53 exclamation marks at the end of Sriracha’s statement.] He might as well have added, don’t believe your own eyes; believe what WE TELL YOU. That’s worked for Pravda for decades. Kellyanne Corncob says her buddy Sean was presenting “alternative facts.” Kind of like the alternative-right, eh? The side-by-side aerial photos of Obama’s 2009 crowd and Trump’s 2017 event couldn’t be more obvious–Sean’s been drinking Trump koolaid.
Kellyanne Corncob displays Trump’s propensity to project his own faults and personality traits onto others. She calls former CIA Director Brennan a “partisan political hack.” No Corncob, he has a highly regarded multi-decade career working across party lines. He served in the CIA from the Reagan administration through Clinton and on through both Bushes. Look in the mirror KC and see an aging political hack. Brennan’s only fault today is telling it like it is about Trump.
Reince Doofus is complaining that the media are trying to delegitimize Trump’s presidency. Doofus says the administration is going to fight back. Well DUH! Trump did that himself by making effective use of Russian hacking, WackyLeaks and fake news propagated by the National Enquirer.
Speaking of the Enquirer, they are among a bunch of “news” organizations that will be granted White House press credentials that Sean Sriracha can call on at briefings beginning Monday. Possibly FAKE NEWS follows–but could be mostly true–you be the judge. Along with Trump’s organ paper, just some of the new correspondents will come from:
Infowars (AKA Infofarce)
RT (Russian Television), Sputnik News and Pravda
Breitbart (also known to some as Darkfart or WhiteBark)
Stormfront (main neo-nazi site)
The Drudge Report (AKA Dimwit Report)
John McCain and Lindsey Graham wimp out. Despite Rex Tillerson’s ties to Russia and his manifest lack of qualifications, they will vote for him as Secretary of State. As Trump would say, if they were voting the other way: “LOSERS! SAD!”
Some say we Americans should support the peaceful transition to a new President. Sure, no violence. Antipathy yes. Respect? No–for the office but not for the man. We can’t say for sure how much Russia helped get him elected. We can’t say for sure how much contact and collusion may have existed between Putin and Trump’s team. Based on Trump’s comments and behavior, it’s reasonable to think there was quite a bit. I have every reason to believe he will rank in the top five of the worst Presidents America has ever had. He’s the most manifestly unqualified. He’s dangerously ignorant with no desire to become informed, assuming he could.
It’s easy to do as I do here, mock and ridicule Trump with the same sort of fake news that helped propel him to the White House. While he relished, tweeted and retweeted all of the fake news that came out regarding Clinton, he now calls fake any derogatory information about him, his transition team or cabinet appointments. So I’ll persist in offering fake news. Why do it? It’s to keep the spirits up of the large majority of Americans and people around the worlddismayed at Trump’s ascension to what he no doubt thinks of as a throne.
But isn’t there something more positive that can be done?Yes, there is.That means those who fear Trump or despise him for all that he says and does must reach out and talk with those who voted for him about matters of mutual concern. It does no good to simply cut ties with friends, neighbors and family members that voted for Trump. Rather, we have to listen to them about why they did what we consider totally irrational–voting for Trump. Some may be gullible. Some may be racist. Some may even have legitimate concerns that they felt weren’t being met by Hillary Clinton in particular or Democrats in general. It’s clearly pointless to expect Trump to unite America. That’s up to the rest of us.
Have a few laughs in the meantime, with the fake news here. Keep resisting. Keep whistleblowing. Keep peppering your Congressman or Senator with objections to cabinet picks or legislative proposals that will affect you if you’re American. March in protest, recognizing that such activity won’t directly affect Trump but besides making you feel good it will confirm polls that show Trump will enter the White House with the lowest approval rating of any President in the last 40 years.
Nothing below is presented as or claimed to be true (with minor exceptions noted)–although some of it could be. It is FAKE News. It’s satire.
Kellyanne Corncob said Trump’s words don’t matter in an interview on CNN a few days ago. Never mind what’s come out of his mouth, “look at what’s in his heart.” Using the most advanced technology available, select news outlets have scanned Trump’s chest from a distance. It appeared that, like the Tin Man, he had none. Upon closer examination, they determined that it was there, although shriveled up like a prune past its prime. Trump’s surrogates often complain that news media are taking him literally. So in this case, he’s not literally heartless—just compassionately challenged. See for yourself in this side-by-side comparison of a normal heart and Trump’s heart.
On behalf of Benedict Trump, National Security Adviser Michael “RT” Flynn, called the Russian Ambassador five times on December 29th.Hereportedly said, according to a leak of an NSA intercept authorized by a FISA warrant,
“Don’t worry about Obama’s sanctions and those diplomats expelled. Once Trump’s in the White House we’ll roll them back and you can bring back as many spies—I mean diplomats—as you want.”
“Thank you, Comrade Flynn,” the ambassador replied.
It’s the commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday tomorrow. A day for voluntarily providing some kind of service in King’s memory. Here’s a link to the national site where you can find a place to volunteer or record what your group did.
In my small locale, there’s not many opportunities for such service. So next year, I’ll have to try harder and sooner to not let the day go by. I hope you will find something you can do.
While I should stop there I can’t. With the inauguration of someone who shares none of the values nor the accomplishments of King coming next Friday, I must continue. To be fair, Donald Trump did PLAN on visiting the Smithsonian African-American History Museum tomorrow. But he had to cancel due to “scheduling conflicts.”
So herewith,MORE FAKE NEWS!Ending with what he will be doing instead of visiting the Smithsonian.
Trump considered Attorney General nominee Jefferson Beauregard Session’s suggestion to volunteer at the Museum of the War of Northern Aggression in Alabama. Heultimately declined due to travel time issues.
Trump SERIOUSLY considered serving food in Little Odessa—Brighton Beach.Apparently he misunderstood the relationship of the Russian emigres there with Vladimir Putin and the oligarchs back home.Vlad nixed that idea after Donald mentioned it to him.
Finally, the right place dawned on him, a cat rescue shelter in Tribeca. Trump tweeted this about his choice:
I just love pussies, especially grabbing and holding them. Oh WHAT A FEELING!
First, a follow up on the unverified reports of a Russian dossier on Trump and the salacious memorandum released by BuzzFeed.
Trump trusts the National Enquirer.He says it should get a Pulitzer. It has become his own version of Russia’s Pravda. It’s always been filled with ridiculously false news; during the campaign it offered a daily feed of fake news concerning Hillary Clinton. Now it offers fake news of Trumps accomplishments.
During the campaign the Russians planted fake news on Clinton. They provided leaks on Hillary Clinton to WackyLeaks. He didn’t disavow them–he repeated them. So what happens when the CNN and BuzzFeed reports come out? He decries fake news!
Yes, some of the information may be false. Still, a person’s character is revealed by his words or deeds. We know how Trump conducted himself during the campaign and after the election. He lies more often than he tells the truth. He insults and ridicules everyone. We know how he bragged about grabbing women by the genitals. So even if all of it isn’t true, much of it very likely is.
Trump can dish it out but he can’t take it.
Here’s just a few of the many faces of Trump. The middle two come from the Daily Beast.
