I suspect that these years will not be "golden" for the American presidency.

Image result for trump images       I am getting ready to watch president Obama's farewell speech.

Regardless of what you thought of the man's policies, you have to admit that he carried himself with dignity and grace while in office, and that he, along with his family, was scandal free.

Which leads me, once again, to our president-elect and the following story:

"A dossier making explosive — but unverified — allegations that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising information about him has been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.

The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, includes specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians. CNN reported Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the report was given to President Obama and Trump.

Now BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.

The document was prepared for political opponents of Trump by a person who is understood to be a former British intelligence agent. It is not just unconfirmed: It includes some clear errors. The report misspells the name of one company, “Alpha Group,” throughout. It is Alfa Group. The report says the settlement of Barvikha, outside Moscow, is “reserved for the residences of the top leadership and their close associates.” It is not reserved for anyone, and it is also populated by the very wealthy.

The Trump administration’s transition team did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News’ request for comment. However, the president-elect’s attorney, Michael Cohen, told Mic that the allegations were absolutely false.

“It’s so ridiculous on so many levels,” he said. “Clearly, the person who created this did so from their imagination or did so hoping that the liberal media would run with this fake story for whatever rationale they might have.”[Story]

Of course the most interesting part of the whole story is this little tidbit:


  • "Now details of classified documents presented to president-elect have emerged in a report by CNN - including memos given to the FBI 
  • The memos claim the Russian secret services had a file on Trump of 'kompromat' - damaging material Kremlin could use to blackmail him
  • Dossier included claims he ordered prostitutes to commit degrading sex acts in the presidential suite of a Moscow hotel - because the Obamas stayed there

  • John McCain was given a copy months before election which he handed to James Comey, Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein said.

  • Disclosure FBI sat on damaging allegations will enrage Democrats after Comey went public with Anthony Weiner material just before election." [Source]  



  • I am not sure what those alleged "degrading sex acts" were, but let's just say that #GoldenShowers is trending on twitter.

    Obama wasn't anywhere near scandal free.

    I have no idea whether any of the latest dirt on Trump is true.

    But I can say with absolute certainty that no matter what comes out about their scumbag messiah, they will not care at all. He could be caught robbing an orphanage while simultaneously raping a nun and emailing nuclear secrets to North Korea, and the Trumpkins would be fine with it.

    As long as he tells them pleasing (though utterly implausible) lies and beats up on brown people, he can do no wrong.

    Obvious bullshit about the golden showers. Everyone who's ever written anything about Trump, including his screwing around, describes him as a pathological germophobe.

    Anyone who insists on wearing a condom when getting a blowjob -- this was reported during rhe campaign -- ain't gonna lay on the same bed with prostitues while they piss on each other.

    I think the point the intelligence officials were trying to make with this "raw" information is that this is the sort of thing the Russians do, have always done, and are still doing. This report may be fundamentally ridiculous but don't doubt that they have others which may not be, and their position as allies of Trump could put him in an easily compromised position when it comes time to talk turkey.

    Also, any sex acts that include Donald Trump are by definition degrading. even to the farm animals involved.

    Hell, we haven't even seen his tax returns so we don't know if he's in debt to the Russians. I guess if this turns into a disaster we can blame angry white males. Thanks guys.

    Golden years, whop whop whop...
    Serious reporters have been unable to verify any of this stuff, and it apparently is something of a statement by the intelligence officers Trump has been slandering lately to think twice (or in Trump's case at all) before fucking with them. As in if you think Breitbart is good at making up damaging lies, think about the CIA for a minute. Or tell one of your toadies to, as sixty seconds of anything is a lot to ask of Trumpie-poo.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

    www.BoycottBitches.com

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    Flying Junior said...

    After watching Obama's historic speech, none of this seems very important. The best we can hope to get out of it is a criminal conviction of Trump for high treason. At a glance, it sounds like bullshit. I could think of some better hard-core, perverted shit with some Russian bitches than that.

    None of this matters right now. Obama has been our captain. He has shown leadership balanced with restraint. He has furthered the ideals of the democratic party without ever impugning the opposing party. He has helped to guide the change that was in all of us. Now all that we have to do is hope that good people are smart enough to vote next time around.

    Obama has earned his place in the Valhalla of great presidents. It is clear that the next president will simply be a hopeless clown who will make GWB appear a great statesman.

    Watch, read and listen to the speech as many times as you can. Internalize it. Just stay off of the perpetual bullshit/news cycle for the next one hundred days. Go forth to do righteousness.

    Because you have personal experience? How do the "farm animals"

    It takes a real man to satisfy and take care of an American woman.

    Trump married only one and could barely keep her two or three years. After that, she swore off of marriage permanently.

    There will be plenty of men, American and otherwise who will be glad to take that which engenders fear in you.

    Now California women? It is more difficult, but well worth the trouble. :>)

    Josh said...

    Obviously I'm more skeptical than the average poster here, by orders of damn magnitude. And call me a cynic if you must, but I can't buy these stories that are conveniently released about Trump after he's risen to political power. Where were they when he was just your everyday billionaire with a hit television show and some of the most expensive properties on the planet?

    You mean to tell me that, in a culture of torts and suing constantly for money and fame, all these people who were abused by Trump and had sordid happy-times with Trump, etc, never thought to come forward in the past few decades? It's only when he's front-running for the presidency, and wins it, that they think, "Oh, now I remember that time Trump grabbed my va-jay-jay!"

    Get real. If this were any Democrat, the common theme here would be that folks are trying to operate a smear campaign against Trump. This takes confirmation bias to an entirely new level. This is right up there with lizard people and Illuminati.

    Prediction: If these don't stick, we're going to hear in a few months reports from "anonymous sources" about Trump being a pedo. Though they might try to hit him first with accusations of physical abuse against one of his ex wives or daughters or something.

    Josh said...

    "He could be caught..."

    Well, Menstrual, you sorta said it all right there: "Caught."

    There's a gargantuan difference between being caught and some random-ass 5th-party reporting an alleged event.

    That people don't care about the latter (as they shouldn't) doesn't mean they won't care about the former, should it come to pass.

    You wanna see who's right? Maybe catch him first instead of this National Enquirer nonsense.

    Reports on HRC were fundamentally ridiculous, but that didn't stop the FBI from releasing them shortly before the election, now did it?

    mike from iowa said...

    Where were they when he was just your everyday billionaire with a hit television show and some of the most expensive properties on the planet?

    Didn't Drumpf have a clause in contracts that anyone who released any damning information about Drumpf had to pay Drumpf 5 million bucks?

    Ask wikileaks and the Russians why they didn't release this stuff during the election. My best guess is they wanted Drumpf to win and cheated and violated American law to reach that goal.

    Ask Comey why it was proper for the FBI to torpedo HRC's campaign shortly before the election and then turn around and say the FBI doesn't release info of ongoing investigations. HRC's case was not shut down and the FBI jumped all over it.

    Donald Trump joke of the day:

    Trump: Nothing

    The Ministry of Truth said...

    Like I said earlier, though, if there truly were a corpse orgy, his followers just wouldn't care.

    Because America is full of angry imbeciles who so fervently want the garbage Trump is selling that they are willing to shrug off literally any revelation of Trumpish depravity, no matter how ugly it might be.

    mike from iowa said...

    Utah wingnut Jason Chafednutz doesn't have time to investigate Drumpf because- emails. Claims HRC caused the largest breach of security ever and they will continue looking into her emails. Then he claims it was never politically motivated witch hunt, which flies in the face of admissions the hearings were designed to hurt HRC's credibility in the election polls. Fucking pathological lying wingnuts! Every damn one of them!

    and what do you propose be done with them?

    When Obama was president one set of angrys were hating on him. Now that Trump is president another set of angrys is hating on him. What is the answer, what can ameliorate or eradicate this hate?

    Or is hate the national anthem and ideology of America now? and how is that good for the nation and it's peoples?



    Infidel753 said...

    Ministry of Truth: Well, this ought to be good. Donald has called a press conference. About pee.

    Will there be a live stream? Will he explain GoldenGate as part of Republican "trickle down" ideology?

    Trump spent years pushing rubbish about Obama's birth certificate. Even if this latest, er, leak turns out not to be true, it serves him right.

    Forecast for the press conference: heavy showers with a chance of pwnage.

    I heard the rumors about him having a golden toilet, now it's a golden shower?
    And from @RealSparklePony's twitter feed:
    OH NO ARE YOUR A VICTIM OF UNVERIFIABLE RUMORS HOW TERRIBLE FOR YOU

    This comes with the territory of being a thin-skinned, easily trolled narcissist who obtains great power. People will make fun of you. You will hate it. The fucking CIA destabilizes countries and overthrows governments and you think you can publicly denigrate them without any consequences? Please try to comprehend the fact that the election was only the job interview and was by comparison a stroll in the park on a sunny day. The hard stuff starts now. Can you try to handle some of it? Please? You can't just lay down covering fire of distraction when it comes time to run the country, and now there are genuinely evil and powerful people and all of their most powerful tools all aimed at taking you down. They aren't gonna care what lies you heard from Steve Bannon today, they aren't interested in twitter battles. They have armies and spy services. Please stop worrying about who said what about your perversions and try to do your damn job.

    You're absolutely right, Field, Infidel and TMoT deserve some praise. And as someone else in PSP's twitter feed said "Let us have our pee pee jokes tonight, we'll get him for treason after the inauguration..."

    "But I can say with absolute certainty that no matter what comes out about their scumbag messiah, they will not care at all."

    I can say with absolute certainty that the fraction of America which doesn't believe your #FakeNews is large and growing rapidly, and further that lots of them have ceased listening at all.

    We just took the batteries out of your megaphone.  Enjoy.


    "I think the point the intelligence officials were trying to make with this "raw" information is that this is the sort of thing the Russians do, have always done, and are still doing."

    Meanwhile, Trump is restoring the bust of Winston Churchill to its proper place, and is erasing Obama's legacy of Islam from the WH; all the prayer rugs and other symbols are going.  This is the real stuff the #FakeStreamMedia will not report.

    "The best we can hope to get out of it is a criminal conviction of Trump for high treason."

    Man, CLASSIC projection there!  I expect a number of treason trials of Zero's stooges, maybe including Zero himself, before the next election.

    When they set up the firing squads, they should use the MLK memorial on the mall as the backstop.  It's only fitting.  And when the funds for the Coonseum are cut off, its doors will close.  Maybe we can turn it into a nice little park full of classic statuary by 2020.

    After watching Obama's historic speech, none of this seems very important

    I was mildly disappointed by his speech. He had a few good points about the need for people to get out of their tribal bubbles, but I thought it was mainly a lot of self-congratulatory mush. To be fair, most political speeches are the same, but I was hoping for something more profound.

    There were a couple of clunkers in there, such as his climate change reference, and his claiming credit for a supposed lack of terror attacks here. Yeah, there hasn't been another 9/11, but there has obviously been enough going on both here and in Europe for it to be non-credible for Obama to tout a lack of another attack by a terror organization, as opposed to lone wolves, as a success.

    Past that, I had hoped that Obama would've chosen a different setting for his final speech. He basically staged another campaign rally in front of a fawning audience in Chicago, which reminded me a lot of Trump's cheesy victory, er, "thank you" tour in December.

    I think both Trump and Obama were pretty undignified. I expect it out of Trump, a rodeo clown who's hooked on fame and applause, but I'd been looking for Obama to rise about all that. Oh well.

    AND, in other well timed irony, the law firm advising CJ on his conflicts, by pure coincidink, is Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, which has been named “Russia Law Firm of the Year” for 2016 by law profession directory Chambers & Partners for its “high-profile” work in Russia.

    Placeholder fer chrissakes get a little perspective. Obama makes one speech in a venue you don't like and then it is nearly the same as Drumpf's illegal victory lap. Both sides DON"T do it! Obama has been straight up class and dignity his entire 8 years. Drumpf has brought out the very worst in human nature and he hasn't been sworn in and hopefully won't be. I swear to the flying spaghetti monster that any other human being subjected to the tons of shit thrown at them as Potus prolly would have wiped out the wingnut race pretty pronto. Drumpf sure as hell would and I firmly believe he would nuke Americans if Putin told him to.

    Drumpf is a fucking pathological lying POS and should not be allowed to be POtus. Ever!!

    mike from iowa said...

    Apparently a least one more source that can verify Drumpf's Russia problems has come forward. Don't know if it is true, but I will relish every bit of discomfort wingnuts suffer through this sordid mess of their own making. Karma/Kismet is a bitch.

    Here's what I liked in Obama's speech:

    "If every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hardworking white middle class and an undeserving minority, then workers of all shades are going to be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves."

    "For too many of us, it’s become safer to retreat into our own bubbles, whether in our neighborhoods or on college campuses, or places of worship, or especially our social media feeds, surrounded by people who look like us and share the same political outlook and never challenge our assumptions. The rise of naked partisanship, and increasing economic and regional stratification, the splintering of our media into a channel for every taste -- all this makes this great sorting seem natural, even inevitable. And increasingly, we become so secure in our bubbles that we start accepting only information, whether it's true or not, that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that is out there."

    "America, we weaken those ties when we allow our political dialogue to become so corrosive that people of good character aren't even willing to enter into public service; so coarse with rancor that Americans with whom we disagree are seen not just as misguided but as malevolent. We weaken those ties when we define some of us as more American than others; when we write off the whole system as inevitably corrupt, and when we sit back and blame the leaders we elect without examining our own role in electing them."

    "Obama has been straight up class and dignity his entire 8 years."

    "The officer behaved stupidly."  "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon."  Sending reps to funerals of dead gang-bangers but not the cops they kill.  Yeah, class act.  Not.

    "Drumpf is a fucking pathological lying POS and should not be allowed to be POtus. Ever!!"

    Funny, I think the same thing about Black people and voting.  The record of Black people voting has proven that it's a really bad idea.
