Forget The “Perjury Trap,” It’s The Obstruction Of Justice Trap Trump Should Worry About


Trump’s lawyers have been pushing the excuse that Trump shouldn’t submit to a interview with the Mueller team because prosecutors might lead him into a “Perjury Trap.” If a trap means an interview will provide a setting where a pathological liar without the capacity for telling the truth will end up committing perjury, they’re right!

Trump has no more chance of making it through an interview under oath without perjuring himself than an ice-cube not melting in hell. But that isn’t Trump’s biggest worry (other that the financial documents tying him to money laundering, foreign bribes and defrauding the US Government). Trump has to worry about avoiding the Obstruction of Justice Trap that awaits him when his son is indicted for lying to the FBI.

Donald Jr lied to the FBI about the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June, 2016 involving Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, and a still unknown number of Russians including a lawyer with ties to the Kremlin. What seems forgotten in the reporting was that the lies Donald Jr provided to the FBI were likely those provided to him by his father. News broke of the Trump Tower meeting while Donald J. Trump and his son were on Air Force One returning from an overseas trip. President Trump dictated a response which contained the lies Trump Jr most likely repeated to the FBI. The President finds himself in a situation where his son faces a felony charge for repeating the words he provided.

While certainly questionable, before we got to know his children, Donald Trump was generally considered to have done well with them, although he had relatively little to do with raising them. Whatever you think of Donald, there is little to suggest he’ll shrug off an indictment of his namesake, for repeating lies created by himself. When they come for Donald Jr, his father will have three options:

  1. Take responsibility himself and admit the lie was of his own making and Donald Jr was acting at the behest of the President and therefore charges should be dropped.
  2. Trump can simply pardon his son, demonstrating he considers not only himself but also his family members above the law.
  3. He can immediately fire Mueller (meaning he has to fire Rosenstein and possibly multiple others until he can find someone in the Justice Department willing to do the deed. That would be as clear an example of obstruction we’ll ever find, certain to make it’s way among the Impeachment articles.

An honorable man might choose the first option. Donald Trump has rarely been confused with an honorable man. A relative restrained man might go the second route, restraint is not a Trump virtue either. The Donald Trump we’ve come to know will react with furious anger, obstructing justice at every turn. That’s the trap he need fear, and he’s too stupid to get out of the way.

10 Things I Wonder About Donald Trump?


  1. Does he pay for his Klan membership from his own money or did he have it paid from The Trump Foundation?
  2. Does he hang his hair up to dry at night after sweating in it all day?
  3. What is his actual reading level? I’m taking 6th grade in the pool.
  4. Does Melania have multiple locks on the door to her separate bedroom?
  5. False teeth?
  6. Is everyone afraid to say something to him about his super long ties?
  7. Where does he go to find his lawyers? In fairness, since everyone in the White House is lawyered up, all the good ones were probably taken.
  8. Given he has 5 children and several grandchildren, has he ever changed a diaper?
  9. Can we deport him to a “shithole country?” Would any take him in?
  10. Is he more worried about his former lawyer, his accountant, David Pecker, Mueller, the New York State Attorney General, the State Attorney from the Southern District of New York, or Omarosa? They’re all coming for him.

Where Is John McCain’s Other Daughter, Bridget McCain?


You might already know the story? John McCain’s wife was in Bangladesh visiting Mother Theresa’s Orphanage to try to help the children there. She encountered two young girls there, one with severe heart problems and another with a severe cleft palate. Frustrated at her inability to get assurance these children would be taken care of, she made arrangements to bring both girls back to the United States with her. One of the girls (Mickey) was adopted by family friends and the McCain’s adopted Bridget.

During John McCain’s first run for the Presidency in 2000, he was favored to win the South Carolina primary and likely the Republican nomination. Karl Rove, on behalf of George W. Bush who was trailing McCain in the polls. Put out a phone poll asking, “Would you be more or less likely to vote for John McCain… if you knew he fathered an illegitimate black child?” McCain lost the primary and the nomination due to the slander perpetrated by the Bush Campaign.


In the wake of John McCain’s recent death from a form of brain cancer. I can’t help but notice the absence of coverage featuring his daughter Bridget? On multiple networks I see images of wife Cindy, his 106 year old mother Roberta, TV news personality Meghan McCain appears in every news story. Fox News ran a story about McCain’s wife and children sharing messages of love. Bridget was mentioned as existing but no photo or indication of her response to her father’s death.

Bridget as of this writing doesn’t have a Wikipedia page, her last post on her Facebook page was in 2017. She made a couple public appearances when McCain ran again for President in 2008. She also gave an interview about her father that same year in Scholastic magazine. She attended Arizona State University. There isn’t much more public information about the now 27-year-old Bridget and I wonder why?


I have no conspiracy theory, it may well be her preference to remain out of the limelight? It may be something else as well? Here’s wishing condolences to Bridget the missing daughter, who is grieving as well.

What Happens When Trump’s “Children of the Corn” Run A Charitable Foundation?


In the 1984 movie, “Children of the Corn,” based on the Stephen King novel. Children were convinced by a demon (Donald of course) that everyone over the age of 18 must be killed. They succeeded in killing all the adults in a fictional Nebraska town (deep in Trump country), where they serve their false God, “He Who Walks Behind The Rows.” Suppose the Children of the Corn existed in real life?

Inevitably, the children leaders approach age 18 themselves and naturally don’t want to be sacrificed. They make a deal with the demon to pose as his own children and assist him in reaching his goal of molding the world in his own image. One of the ploys used to appear to do good was the establishment of a charitable foundation. When the demon reached the first plateau in his quest for world dominance. He placed, The Trump Foundation in the hands of his now adult children; Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr.


Because the demon was obsessed with hoarding money, in 2008 he stopped contributing his own funds to the foundation and relied solely on outside contributions. The trust contributed to such worthwhile endeavors as a 6-foot tall portrait of the demon and separately a 4-foot tall portrait. These were displayed at the demon’s golf courses of which he owns several. Coming out of the cornfields he must maintain a close relationship to the soil that spawned him and he has yet to spend more than a week or two without going back to a golf course to replenish his energy. In his time away from golf courses, he exists primarily on McDonalds.

The Trump children were made board members of the Foundation, pretty much because Trump trusted no one else, save the family accountant that had always served the demon, Allen Weisselberg. None of the children paid attention to the goings on at The Trump Foundation.

Ivanka established a career as a model and then started a fashion line, paying workers in a Chinese sweat shop less than a dollar-an-hour for 12-hour days. They did get 2 days off per month. She and brother Donald Jr escaped prosecution on fraud charges related to a real estate venture when the District Attorney was persuaded by a top donor to drop the charges.


Eric has never worked for anyone except his father. He did create the Eric Trump Foundation which got into trouble for siphoning off funds raised to treat cancer patients and funneling them into the demon’s businesses. Eric said the funds were “re-donated” which no doubt relieved those who may have thought their donations were misused. Eric is often mocked as being “the stupid one,” probably because of the words that come out of his mouth.


Donald Jr tried to break away from the demon and worked as a bartender for a year, living in a truck. Eventually his need for money brought him back and he’s served the demon ever since. In 2016, he was interviewed with white supremacist James Edwards. The Trump campaign initially lied (surprise) and said the interview didn’t take place, Don Jr later claimed it was “inadvertent.” Junior continues to tweet White Nationalist meme’s from time to time lest anyone be confused about his beliefs. His wife recently left him after an affair with an entertainer was discovered (If only Melania had the guts) and is now dating a former Fox News personality, Kimberly Guilfoyle.


The Trump Foundation, with the children actively looking away. Spent donors money on political activities including paying off state attorney generals (Pam Bondi-FL and Greg Abbot-TX) to not pursue charges against the fraudulent Trump University. They paid off lawsuits related to The Trump Organization and made promises to veterans organizations which weren’t fulfilled. They made donations to groups that rented Trump Organization facilities (self-dealing) and to organizations that helped the demon politically.

On September 13, 2016, the State of New York announced an investigation into The Trump Foundation. Seventeen days later they issued a “Notice of Violation.” On October 17, 2016 the state ordered them to cease fundraising operations. The Trump Foundation indicated they would cooperate and tried to dissolve the foundation, hoping that would end its troubles. The State of New York said they weren’t permitted to dissolve until these matters were cleared up.

We recently learned, under the children’s alleged watch. the Trump Foundation was use to make payments to silence women who slept with the demon. In a sordid tale which involves rats and flippers. The demon’s personal attorney, accountant, and tabloid publisher friend have all agreed to testify against the demon, two of the three after accepting Federal Immunity against all charges. It is still presumed a sitting President (the demon) can’t be indicted but those three adult children have no such protection. Last week the State of New York subpoenaed the demon’s attorney, Michael Cohen, regarding the activities of The Trump Foundation and he’s in a talking mood.


At the end of the Children of the Corn movie. The demon is seen burning up along with the cornfield, with the remaining children now aware it was a demon that led them. In real life, the demon may well sacrifice his children to save himself? Will it be the State of New York or the Justice Department that starts indicting the children first? How will the demon react? It’s about to get real ugly!

Trump: “The Only Reason I Picked …”


Donald Trump, despite his claims that he would bring in, “the best people,” seems to have used some of the worst reasons for selecting his staff, Cabinet members, lawyers, and girlfriends.


He said about Jeff Sessions, “The only reason I gave him the job is because I felt loyalty. He was an original supporter.” That doesn’t seem to be much of a reason to be appointed the top law enforcement person in the nation. To be fair to Trump, Sessions shared many of Trump’s views regarding immigration, voter suppression, and people of color. The fact he was deemed “too racist” to become a Federal Judge earlier in his career was probably a plus rather than a negative.


About Omarosa, who’s out peddling her book running down Trump, his administration and family members. He hired her because, “She only said great things about me.” He added, “She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her. But heard really bad things.” She also was apparently the only black person qualified for a senior position in the Trump administration. At least the only one Kellyanne Conway could remember.

Lets look at the likely reasons Trump appointed several other members of his administration or Cabinet. Besides saying very nice things about Trump.


Wilbur Ross: “He ran the Bank of Cyprus which is the greatest bank ever for laundering money. I could learn great things from Wilbur”


Ben Carson: “I called him a psychopath during the campaign but didn’t really mean it. He’ll do what he’s told and really knows his place.”


Hope Hicks: “She’s a nice piece of tail.” Again, striving for fairness, Trump didn’t say exactly that about Ms. Hicks. What he did say to her when she expressed concern about press treatment of her married boyfriend Corey Lewandowski, then Trump’s Campaign Manager. “You’ve already done enough for him. You’re the best piece of tail he’ll ever have.” Hicks is alleged to have run from the room after Trump’s comment.


Ivanka Trump: “Don’t you think my daughter’s hot? She’s hot right?” or “If she wasn’t my daughter. Perhaps I’d be dating her?” or “My daughter Ivanka. She’s 6 feet tall, she’s got the best body. She made a lot of money as a model… a tremendous amount.” or “Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know her father…”

Note: These are not hypothetical quotes. Trump actually said all those things.


Paul Manafort: It is unclear as to whether Trump hired Manafort based of recommendations from potential future defendant Jared Kushner, potential future defendant Roger Stone, or the Russian mob. There are unconfirmed stories suggesting all of the above. It hardly matters which is true.


Mike Pence: Selected by convicted felon Paul Manafort.


Stormy Daniels: She “spanked that ass,” what’s not to like about that?

BlacKkKlansman: A Review (Spoilers)


There was probably a way to write a review of this movie without spoilers. I could write about Spike Lee’s craft as the director or Denzel Washington’s son (John David Washington) and his performance portraying Ron Stallworth, the black undercover detective who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan. Those are stories worth telling but not what I deemed important after seeing the film.


It’s important to note the movie is based on a real-life story and the book “Black Klansman: A Memoir.” That doesn’t mean everything happens exactly as they did in real life and there are some notable differences. None that couldn’t have happened in real life and none that take away from the credibility of the film. No one should fail to learn from the facts of the film because of the existence of the fiction to create a marketable story.


The film begins with battlefield scenes from, “Gone With the Wind” where we see Scarlett O’Hara, scouring a battlefield littered with Confederate soldiers. We then switch to Alec Baldwin as Dr. Kennebrew Beauregard filming a white supremacist PSA and then to Ron Stallworth to the Colorado Springs police force where he aimed to be their first black detective. We see his interview with the Chief of Detectives and a recruitment agent, Mr. Turrentine played by Isiah Whitlock Jr. who indeed delivers his famous phrase from “The Wire.”

After being given a desk assignment where he retrieved files, he was given the assignment to infiltrate a speech by Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture) to get a feel for the reaction of the local black community and potential for revolution. Kwame was invited by the local college Black Student Union whose President was Patrice Dumas, his fictional love interest played by Laura Harrier. The speech by Kwane (Corey Hawkins) was riveting and should be required watching or reading by today’s black youth.


Back at the police station, Detective Stallworth sees a newspaper advertisement for membership in the Klan and he impulsively calls, leading to him striking up a series of telephone relationships with Klan members including the Grand Wizard David Duke. In order to facilitate in-person meetings, he recruited Jewish officer Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) and they were able to infiltrate the Colorado Klan and foil an attempted terrorist attack.

I won’t reveal more of the plot except to say the point of the film is to make you consider how similar the country is today to that time in 1978 when the film was set. Racist attitudes have changed little except that racists have been more accepted and often have no need to worry about hoods and robes. The “secret empire” needs to be secret no longer. We hear a younger David Duke saying, “America First,” which sounds exactly like the statements uttered by right-wing politicians today. The racists of 1978 spoke of blacks and Jews when they thought no one was listening in the same manner as people do proudly (but mostly anonymously) today on the Internet.


The film ended with video clips from 2017 in Charlottesville as we watched crowds of Klan members and affiliated groups like Neo-Nazi’s and skinheads, uniting to display their hatred for others less white. The final scenes are of the Neo-Nazi driver that sped into a crowd, killing Heather Heyer, with Donald Trump saying some of the Klan members were, “very fine people.”


There are jokes in the movie but you won’t walk away laughing. You will recognize that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Some of the terms are changing; people act “racially” or exhibit “nationalism.” To some, the very definition of racism has changed to the point where nothing qualifies. When you see this movie, and you should. You’ll recognize racism for what it was then and is now a clear and present danger.

One final note, the Colorado Springs police department seemed more concerned about preventing cross-burning than eradicating the Klan. They eventually disbanded the intelligence team that had infiltrated the Klan, worried about what people might think rather than continue to do good. They ordered all evidence of the operation destroyed. Fortunately, the real Ron Stallworth saved his notes which turned into his book and ultimately this movie. Highly recommended.

Trump: Surrounded By Rats!

Instead of the rats deserting the sinking ship, they appear to be circling the President, waiting to bite a vulnerable spot. It was ironic that Trump recently tweeted about Richard Nixon’s lawyer John Dean being “a rat” for his Watergate testimony that brought Nixon down. It was recently revealed that Don McGahn who serves in the same position John Dean did, White House Counsel, has given 30 hours of testimony to lawyers representing Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

a a a a a a a a a a a ratd

Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney of almost two decades is at this moment entering a guilty plea a plea deal on charges of tax and bank fraud which will result in him cooperating with Federal investigators. This is the man who was negotiating with Russians to build Trump Tower Moscow, during the 2016 Presidential election campaign. He also was found to have made tapes of the President and others without their consent, some describing events like arranging to pay off a Playboy Playmate who accused Trump of having a year-long affair with her.

a a a a a a a a a a a mannaforttt

Reality star Omarosa has written a book making multiple claims about Trump, for which she has provided receipts in the form of audio tapes with as many as 200 more possibly to come including some with video. It’s hard to imagine her skulking around the White House with spy gear taping people but she’s already successfully taped John Kelly in the situation room so all bets are off.

a a a a a amaaoure

Others who have already testified before one of the Special Counsel’s grand juries or FBI investigators include former communications directors Hope Hicks and Sean Spicer. Former NSA Director Michael Flynn, Steve Bannon, George Papadoupolos, Carter Page, and more. The biggest rats might be those who have not yet been before the grand jury because they themselves are targets; Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Mike Pence and Roger Stone. Who among them is willing to go to jail and sacrifice themselves for this President?

a a a a fathersssss

During Watergate, the question of the day was, “Who is Deep Throat?” The whistleblower who pointed the press in the right direction. In the Trump era, one needs a scorecard to keep track of all the people ratting out Trump both publicly and privately. Trump himself is in a panic and truly looks like a man with no way out. In reality, he actually has two… resignation or jail. If he waits too long, it may only be jail, we will see!
