Mueller Finally Comes Down From the Mountain: the biblical version

When the people saw that Mueller was gone from them for so long, they came to Fox News and asked for a God they could worship. And Fox News said, ‘bring me your memes, half-truths, and conspiracies, and I shall fashion a belief system for you.”

And it came to pass, that when Mueller came down from the mountain, he had two volumes of testimony in his hands. In this testimony were ten points known to be moments of obstruction, written for the masses whom were lost or disillusioned.

Honestly, I didn’t think it any soothsaying to foresee how this was going to end up. From Dec. 1 2017:

“When I started this blog my presumption was that ultimately many people around Donald Trump would be charged with various crimes and that Trump would still be standing after the fact.  He would remain… tarnished, damaged and left to Congress to deal with or not; leading to a constitutional crisis.”

The only thing incorrect with my original assumptions long ago, is that I thought that Mueller would make a pronouncement that Donald Trump did in fact appear guilty of a particular crime and that he simply lacked the tools to handle the charges himself. Had Mueller been an independent special counsel, it is likely that would have come to pass. But, because Mueller has been a creature of the DOJ, he did not make any such pronouncement, and rightly so.

It’s actually really funny…it’s very funny when you think about it. Not only has Robert Mueller done everything absolutely perfectly, he has done so in a masterful fashion in legality and in a poetically just fashion.

What I presumed after reading Barr’s odd initial four page outline of the Mueller report is correct. The Mueller report was written for Congress.

“No my friends, this report is meant for one of the committees in the House of Representatives. It needs to arrive in it’s whole state; complete in both style and content. Not only is it meant for the House, it is written in the words of Robert Mueller speaking to the House.”

It’s funny because Mueller has left it to us angry and malformed children of narratives to govern ourselves. He has thrown the ten commandments at us and we shall divide ourselves into separate tribes and require untold years before we submit to the truth.

Cunt Sanders Makes Rare Appearance, Says Something Stupid

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a Cunt

It is well documented that Sarah Sanders is a cunt. I think we can all agree on that. However, her latest television appearances, making the propaganda rounds in an attempt to clean up the most recent idiotic things Donny has said, she has taken her cunthood to a new level of baffling, incomprehensible, reason-defying cuntshitfuckery.

After it was leaked that Donny was keen on the idea of picking up undocumented immigrants en masse, and dumping them off on the doorsteps of sanctuary cities as a form of retribution, an idea which the administration tried to clean up by saying, “This was just a suggestion that was floated and rejected, which ended any further discussion,” Donny then went on to announce that, nah man, he really likes that idea and it may be done after all. Thereby employing a Donny-trademarked, triple switcharoo on his befuddled PR staff.

SEND OUT THE CUNT!

Rep. Dan Crenshaw Incites Violence Against Rep. Ilhan Omar

It’s just a sensational headline. That’s all.

“Some people did something.” What kind of a monster would put those four words together in the same sentence?

Honestly, Dan is merely a truth-teller. He’s just pointing out facts. I mean, come on! tweeting this factual representation of Omar’s obvious implication, isn’t any attempt to influence white nationalists in the least bit. It’s not like the GOP is perpetually trying to fabricate narratives about Rep. Omar. Nope. Nevah!

Everyone knows, if Omar uses the inartful pronoun “Some people” with the nondescriptive “something,” she clearly means that she doesn’t consider the 9/11 attacks to be an act of terrorism. That goes without saying. Coming from the same Dan Crenshaw that continually touts self-accountability and anti-aggrievement politics, there must be something that set Dan off in Omar’s statement aside from what could be cast as childish, idiotic inferences.

I wonder if it was this that set him off?

Dan isn’t an Islamophobe or a xenophobe. That wouldn’t be a fair inference to make. He just happened to be an administrator of an 90k strong, islamophobe and conspiracy theory Facebook group for 4 months before the election. He withdrew his membership after his role was reported on, so what’s the problem. As Dan said himself,

“They contacted me once and said they’d sign me up as an admin, in case I ever wanted to post,” said Crenshaw, who removed himself from the group after Newsweek contacted him. “I quickly forgot about the page and never saw it again. How exactly is this news?”

It would be unfair to make any such connection. Just because he associated himself with that group, that doesn’t mean we should associate him with that group. Am I right?

Or, just because he implied to his followers that some state laws which allowed some undocumented immigrants to vote in rare state or local situations, meant that the Democrats wanted to flood the system to vote in federal elections, that doesn’t mean he is misrepresenting the truth to his followers, even if they pick up the clear implication. That’s their bad.

Dan is just a messenger.

There couldn’t be anything wrong with Dan pushing the fabricated “Omar is anti-Semitic” narrative. That won’t rile up the cult at all for sure.

Everyone knows Dan is speaking from a position of moral superiority. His viewpoints are unaffected from any outside influences. He is a champion of the right to free speech, except in the case to speak against the Israeli-Palestinian situation. That particular right should not exist according to Dan, unless we are 100% behind Israel. His trip to Israel, paid for by AIPAC, is a clear sign Dan is not being unduly influenced by anyone, even if they are the very group Ilhan Omar singled out as example of the influence of PACs on our political system, which is obviously an anti-Semitic stance for her to take. Everyone knows that.

So, like Dan- I’m just saying. I’m not implying anything, that’s entirely up to you. If something were to happen to Rep. Ilhan Omar, that totally wouldn’t have anything to do with Dan Crenshaw.

NAFTA II, the USMCA

Lots of stuff is slipping through the cracks per usual with this bipolar administration’s constant bullshit. The USMCA is one of the important issues we have all lost sight of.

No one would argue that NAFTA did not need a fine tuning, but many would argue that the USMCA is not the appropriate upgrade of the existing trade agreement between the US, Mexico, and Canada. What is unfortunate is that the Democrats and Republicans seem to be lining up on the side of a political analysis of the USMCA rather than an economic analysis. The GOP seeks to support the agreement no matter what is inside of it, and the Democrats, although by-and-large are finding issues on a micro level with each detail, are also not keen on just giving Trump a “win”.

The only certain “winner” in the USMCA for the US, is dairy producers in slightly wider access to Canada. The target is to allow US dairy farmers access to 3.5% of the Canadian market, a not insignificant sum to US dairy farmers, but an insignificant sum in the overall agreement.

Some of the Democrats point by point concerns about the USMCA are:

  1. Agreed upon labor standards which could have the effect of lowering US Auto manufacturer wages.
  2. How environmental standards will be enforced.
  3. Higher pricing on already costly classes of drugs.

Democratic leaders realize there are 3 options for the USMCA agreement. Accepting the agreement as-is, refusing it and continuing under NAFTA, or a highly likely scenario considering idiot Trump’s track record, of removing the US from any trade agreement with Mexico and Canada altogether. The uncertainty that the US represents to the interests of Canada and Mexico’s trade resulted in the necessary completion and implementation of a major trade agreement between them and 9 Asian countries in the CPTTP.

All of these finer points aside, the biggest drag on the trade situation between the three countries is idiot Trump’s idiot tariffs. Until that is addressed, the US will push Mexico and Canada further away and create an atmosphere exactly the opposite of any formalized trade agreement.

Perhaps equally important is the lack of focus on the holistic effects of the USMCA on trade between the countries. The International Monetary Fund has made just such a study, and it isn’t pretty. Regardless of whether we trust the IMF’s target numbers in this profoundly complex study, the overall effect seems undeniable. The USMCA will result in a net loss of trading between all three countries and a net loss for each country due to global forces that would make it easier and more cost effective to take a portion of their business elsewhere as a result of the agreement.

We must further examine idiot Trump’s idiocy in his constant statements that the USMCA is collecting large amounts of monies in coffers to pay for the wall. First, the USMCA isn’t even ratified. Second, if it were to be ratified, there are no magical “coffers” into which money is flowing from US companies as a result of increased sales. Overall it is clear US companies will have decreased sales and there is no mechanism by which any monies they are making are going to be collected by the Fed to dump into a wall slush fund anyway. Fucking idiot.

The Trump administration’s desire to be an isolationist nation has no effect whatsoever on the global nature of US multinational corporations. Money flows like water through the path of least resistance and the glorious amount of cash that tax reform has dumped into corporations only feeds their desire and ability to find deals across the globe wherever their whims and the bottom line lead them.
