About Me

Canadian who lived for many years in Northern California and left a bit of my heart there.

Journal Archives

He has a choice: Litigate it, foment a pitchfork & torch rebellion, or look deep inside & accept it.

Guaranteed it will not be the last option.

He might try a scorched earth policy and try to make the obstructionism against Obama look tame.

He might try to split the Grumpy Old Paleface party and lick his wounds reminiscing about his Twitter-hall Putsch.

He might write "Mein Twitter Struggle" in his jail cell serving time on tax evasion, bribery, charity fraud, candidate declaration form fraud, and embargo busting, and plot there a Trump 2.0 with Roger "Goebels" Ailes, Roger "Himmler" Stone, and Stephen "Heydrich" Bannon.

He might be busy with a fire sale of assets when Putin pulls the strings of his Russian oligarchs and calls in tRump's loans.

He might end up selling toy jet planes in infomercials on late-night TV.

Everybody Knows the GOP is leaking, Everybody Knows the Mic was Busted

Everybody knows the 'lection is rigged
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows the debate is over
Everybody knows the orange guy lost
Everybody knows the mic was busted
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the GOP is leaking
Everybody knows their candidate lied
Everybody got this horrid feeling
Like their TV or their phone just fried
Everybody talking to their sockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a Miss Universe
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it's now or never
Everybody knows that it's him or you
And everybody knows that you rule forever
Ah, when you've spun a line or two
Everybody knows Trump's deal is rotten
Old Black Joe's still pickin' cotton
For his ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

-- with apologies to Leonard Cohen

Why the uneven coverage: Trump intimidates with vexatious litigation. Sues anyone close to secrets

Trump intimidates with vexatious litigation. He sues anyone who gets close to his secrets.

David Cay Johnston interviewed by Amy Goodman


DAVID CAY JOHNSTON: I wrote a piece for Politico magazine back in April about all of Donald Trump’s connections. And Donald finally called me. He’s had my home number for years. He’s called me at home in the past. And he said to me, "Well, you know, you’ve written a lot of things I like. But if I don’t like what you’re writing, I’m going to sue you." I said, "Well, Donald, you’re a public figure." In America, that means that he would have to prove that I deliberately, knowingly told a lie about him. And he said, "I know I’m a public figure, but I’ll sue you anyway." And it’s one of the reasons the news coverage of him has been so soft. He has threatened to sue everybody. That Politico piece that I wrote, I’ve been an investigative reporter for almost 50 years; I’ve never been lawyered like I was for that piece. And it didn’t have anything that hadn’t been published before. [font size = "+1"]He has intimidated the news organizations, and they’re not willing to talk about that.[/font]

Vindictiveness is a point of pride for Trump, Johnston said. “His personal motto is ‘get revenge,’” said the reporter, who devotes an entire chapter to Trump’s speechifying and writings on the subject. Describing how Trump fired a female employee who, citing ethical qualms, wouldn’t call a banker friend on his behalf, Johnston quotes Trump’s own account from his book, Think Big:

“She ended up losing her home. Her husband, who was only in it for the money, walked out on her and I was glad… I can’t stomach disloyalty…and now [font size = "+1"]I go out of my way to make her life miserable.”[/font]
