Jasmine Crockett Deserves a Nobel Prize for Calling MTG #BleachBlondeBadBuiltButchBody

I’ve been posting essays online since 1998, I’ve written thousands of articles, and I’ve come up with some inventive phrases that are the envy of my fellow bloggers. (or so I imagine)

But Rep. Jasmine Crockett’s eviscerating of Marjorie Taylor Greene (MTG) by dismissing her as “BleachBlondBadBuiltButchBody entails a presence of mind and mastery of the English language that I simply don’t possess. And to think that she came up with this alliterative coup de grace off the cuff, just boggles my mind.

I rarely praise ad hominin attacks but Crockett’s verbal takedown of MTG was richly deserved considering that personal slander is the Georgia congresswoman’s modus operandi. This is not a case of both sides are wrong, MTG was the first to resort to personal attacks by making fun of Crockett’s fake eyelashes. Frankly, it was about time that somebody gave MTG a taste of her own medicine.

#BleachBlondeBadBuiltButchBody was the perfect insult to lob against a profane anti-LGBT legislator, but I need to stress that I intend no disrespect to the many beautiful #BleachBlondGoodBuiltButchBody queer women.

Forevermore whenever MTG opens her mouth we will think: Oh shut up you #BleachBlondeBadBuiltButchBody!

The Debate Between Sleepy Joe and Drowsy Don Will be a Snoozefest

Let’s get ready to rumble! President Joe Biden, 81, and former President Donald Trump, 77, have agreed to a pair of debates. The two ageing pugilists have agreed to a debate on June 27, hosted by CNN, and another on Sept. 10 hosted by ABC.

Don’t expect a Lincoln-Douglas oratory masterclass when these two senile combatants take the stage, it will be more like a clash between Mr. Magoo and Scrooge McDuck.

The debates will feature just the two presidential candidates and the moderators without the rowdy in-person audience that makes even the most boring verbal duel interesting. This will be a disadvantage for Trump because he feeds off the energy of his cultists. The Sleepy Joe vs Drowsy Don debate will be a snoozefest.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr was not invited to the debate; I guess a conspiracy theorist who had part of his brain eaten by a worm would only serve to make the verbal confrontation between the old geezers more confusing.

The only way this debate will be interesting is if Joe Biden stumbles walking up to the stage or if he can’t find his lectern without assistance. There’s also the strong probability that Trump will enliven the verbal match with a bout of flatulence.

I would caution Biden to be prepared for low blows, there is no telling what the vulgar and vindictive Trump will say to rattle his opponent. And I would caution Trump not to interrupt Biden if he regales the viewing audience with an anecdote about Corn Pop, let Biden be Biden and he will lose the debate.

Trump is Past His Expiration Date

“Michael Cohen testified today that Trump once asked him how long he’d be single if Melania were to leave him and said, ‘How long do you think I’d be on the market for? Not long.’ On the market?

‘Coincidentally, ‘not long’ is how Stormy described it.’ — STEPHEN COLBERT

‘But it’s true — he would be off the market soon. I mean, he is clearly past his expiration date.’ — STEPHEN COLBERT”

The New York Times

Trump is past his expiration date as far as being viable marriage material. The narcissist bragged that if Melania left him over his extramarital affairs, he wouldn’t be in the market for long. Trump isn’t exactly a good catch for a gold-digger, he has mountains of debt, his future residence may be a federal penitentiary, he’s persona non grata in most social circles, and not to mention that he’s butt ugly. Imagine a gold-digger calculating whether it’s worth it to marry a billionaire with a mouth that looks like a sphincter. She’d probably faint the first time he tried to french kiss her.

Trump is also past his expiration date when it comes to his physical condition. Like a sirloin steak that’s past its expiration and has been dyed to make it appear fresh, the septuagenarian with the dyed blond wispy hair and the orange complexion reeks to high heaven. Is it any surprise that lawyers, journalists, court reporters and other court officials have complained that he smells, and not just when he’s farting. Trump is physically deteriorating, witness his double chin, his balding pate, and unsteady gate.

Needless to say, Trump’s brain is past its expiration date. The buffoon can’t complete a sentence, let alone a speech. He doesn’t make sense regardless how much weed you smoke or alcohol you drink.

Trump is past his expiration date when it comes to his neo-Nazi, authoritarian ideology. His fascist rhetoric may have been all the rage in Germany in the 30’s and early 40’s, but it’s past its expiration date in 21st century America. His far-right Nationalist ideology may resonate with his evangelical base, but they are a minority in our secular democracy.

Trump is past his expiration when it comes to being a viable presidential candidate, it’s time for voters to kick him to the curb.

Trump Praises Hannibal Lecter as a ‘Wonderful Man’

“Silence of the Lambs. Has anyone ever seen The Silence of the Lambs? The late, great Hannibal Lecter is a wonderful man. He oftentimes would have a friend for dinner. Remember the last scene? Excuse me. I’m about to have a friend for dinner, as this poor doctor walked by. ‘I’m about to have a friend for dinner.’ But Hannibal Lecter. Congratulations. The late, great Hannibal Lecter.”

Remark delivered by Donald Trump to a huge MAGA rally in New Jersey

When presidential candidates have the honor and privilege of speaking before an audience of 100,000 people they don’t waste the opportunity, they wax eloquent on crucial issues like climate change, the Russian invasion of Ukraine or the Gaza genocide.

The Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump delivered his usual stump speech to the huge crowd in Willwood, N.J, rambling on about personal grievances, 2020 stolen election lies, and other assorted lunacies.

In his MAGA rallies Trump often showers dictators like Putin with praise, but this time he praised a fictional cannibal serial killer. It could be that Trump’s dementia has deteriorated to the point where he thinks Hannibal Lecter is a real person. The senile sociopath sent love letters to Kim Jong Un; I wonder if he has sent love letters to his cannibal pen pal?

Trump praised the fictional serial killer “as a wonderful man” before segueing into comments disparaging and demonizing undocumented workers. The racist sees little difference between migrants and cannibals.

It’s incredible to witness a former president and current presidential candidate utter such nonsense, but it’s even more incredible that this lunatic will probably win.

I’d rather have dinner with Hannibal Lecter, we me as the main dish, than see Trump return to power.

What People Remember the Most About Trump’s Administration is His Execrable Behavior

“Two of the biggest U.S. news events in decades, the Covid pandemic and the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol, are seldom the first thing on people’s minds when it comes to their memories of the Trump administration, for example, according to an April Times/Siena survey of registered voters nationwide.

When asked to describe the one thing they remembered most from Donald J. Trump’s presidency, only 5 percent of respondents referred to Jan. 6, and only 4 percent to Covid.”

The New York Times

The COVID pandemic was a catastrophe that decimated our economy, shuttered our churches, schools and entertainment venues, infected most Americans and killed over one million of us.

Trump’s response to this tragedy was ineffectual from the beginning when he tried to dismiss the pandemic as no different from the flu. He disregarded the advice of the CDC and his own health officials, promoted quack cures like bleach and ivermectin, and generally tried to downplay the crisis for political expediency.

Post pandemic thanks to the efficacy of vaccines and the implementation of social mitigation measures COVID is now a seasonal virus like the flu, and most Americans seem to have forgotten Trump’s abysmal response to the pandemic.

The January 6 Insurrection was a failed coup and an existential threat to our democracy, and former president Donald Trump was the instigator and enabler of the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol.

The insurrectionists are languishing in jails in D.C. and most Americans have forgotten that Trump was the chief insurrectionist.

Historians will devote volumes to Trump’s mishandling of the COVID threat and to his attempt to undermine our democracy, but according to the Times poll what most Americans remember about the Trump administration are the economy and his behavior.

It’s about the economy stupid, and Trump’s behavior is execrable, but as the 2024 general election quickly approaches, we mustn’t forget Trump’s botched response to COVID or his contempt for our democracy.

America managed to survive Trump’s administration, but if he regains power, it may mean the end to our democracy.

Mad Respect for Stormy Daniels for Surviving her Tryst with the King of Smelly Farts, Trump

Porn star Stormy Daniels took the witness stand on Tuesday at Donald Trump’s hush-money criminal trial and described in lurid detail her 2006 one-night-stand with the disgraced former president.

For the first time in over a decade the adult film actor, who exuded confidence and honesty, met face-to-face with the pathological liar who is seeking one again to become president in spite of the 91 indictments hanging over his head.

I read the transcript of Daniel’s testimony, and I won’t subject you to a retelling of this sordid sexual encounter; I don’t want to be liable for your therapy bills.

I will focus only on the episode when the narcissist Trump showed her a magazine featuring himself on the cover, leading Stormy to remark: “Someone should spank you with that.” Per the porn star, “He gave me the look that dared me to do it, so I swatted him with it right on the butt.”

Sometimes porn actors are forced to perform humiliating and degrading acts, but even perverse acts like bestiality are not as soul-killing as spanking an incontinent old man who is susceptible to out-of-control farting.

if you spank Trump at best, it will provoke a fart and at worst the smack might unleash a torrent of diarrhea. I have nothing but respect and sympathy for Stormy for having survived her tryst with the deviant with a mushroom-shaped puny pecker and the big old farting butt.

‘Von ShitzinPants’ Perfect Nickname for Donald Trump

Michael Cohen’s, Donald Trump’s former lawyer-cum fixer, scatological nickname for his ex-boss broke the internet and shattered the spirts of the former president when social media posts in which he called him “Von ShitzinPants” were read aloud during a contempt of court hearing.

The social media posts were read aloud by Trump’s own lawyer, Todd Blanche. He was trying to argue that it was unfair for a gag order to prevent Trump from talking smack about witnesses when they could say anything about him.

Trump christens his political opponents with silly monikers that amuse elementary schoolyard bullies, simpletons, and MAGA cultists.

It was extremely satisfying to witness the pompous fool get a taste of his own medicine, and to hear his own lawyer say Von ShitzinPants was the cherry on the cake.

Von ShitzinPants is the perfect nickname for Trump, considering he has a penchant for farting in the courtroom. It’s also common knowledge that the incontinent septuagenarian wears diapers.

When Trump isn’t shitting in his pants, verbal diarrhea is streaming from his sphincter-shaped mouth.

I died laughing when I read about this courtroom drama; Trump couldn’t say or do shit when he heard himself being referred to as Von ShitzinPants.

Evangelical Pastor and Trump Fluffer Hank Kunneman Says That God is ‘Far Right’

For decades Republican candidates have pandered to evangelicals and pledged allegiance to their issues, but once in power they have done little more than offer rhetorical support.

But in the Trump era Republicans have made common cause with white evangelicals and they are now joined at the hip, to the extent that if Trump wins the election, he may very well pervert our democracy into a White Christian Nationalist regime.

Hank Kunneman, the pastor of Lord of Host Church in Omaha, Nebraska, is a prime example of an evangelical leader who thinks the GOP is the party of the Almighty. The self-proclaimed prophet and Trump fluffer said in a sermon that God is “far right” and that Democrats are “black dark evil.”

The Supreme Being isn’t an Attila the Hun monstrosity who orders St.  Peter not to let anyone inside the Pearly Gates if they aren’t card-carrying members of the Republican Party.

And the Democratic Party isn’t the party of Satan, and Democrats aren’t black dark evil.

The truth is that politics is a dirty business and that politicians of all stripes tend to be shady characters. But that’s not to say that there isn’t any difference between Republicans and Democrats.

The only institution more corrupt than politics is religion, and the MAGA Republican Party represents the worst of religion and politics. The leader of the GOP, Donald Trump, is a racist sociopath and wannabe dictator, who will split hell wide open.

Senile Joe Biden Calls Himself a ‘Grown Man’

“US President Joe Biden roasted his predecessor and political rival, Donald Trump and poked fun at his age at the annual dinner for Washington’s political and media elites, saying ‘I am a grown man running against a six-year-old’”.

NDTV

In his dig at his rival Donald Trump, President Joe Biden described himself as a “grown man.” When I think of a grown man, I think of a person who is fully developed and mature, both physically and mentally. I picture a middle-aged man with the wisdom and experience to navigate all the pitfalls of his career and private life.

Biden, 81, is not a grown man; he is an enfeebled old man, who is deteriorating an at exponential rate, both physically and mentally. Biden is not a grown man ready mentally and physically to reach the apex of his career. He is a senile, stubborn and silly old codger who should be put out to pasture.

Biden is not running against Trump, his shuffling along at a tentative gait reminiscent of a dead man walking who is too mentally addled to realize that his days are numbered.

The only truth in Biden’s tired joke is that his opponent is a six-year-old, intellectually and temperamentally. Not to put too fine a point on it, but Trump is a freaking idiot, with the vocabulary, intelligence and wisdom of a toddler. When he doesn’t get his way, he has a tantrum befitting a spoiled toddler.

This joke was written for Biden, he no longer has the mental acuity to read and understand the label on his prescription pills, let alone write a joke.

The joke’s is on us, we are screwed regardless which one of these senile old men wins.

Anti Gun Violence Billboard in Lynchburg, VA

My ageing eyes focus on the traffic ahead of me, and I rarely notice billboards or anything else on the periphery of my vision. But the other day while I was driving down Fort Avenue in Lynchburg, I noticed a billboard in bold lettering:

“Know something about a shooting? Your turn. Gun violence is not a game.”

This billboard with the vaguely menacing message and no accompanying image left an indelible impression on my mind. One cynical interpretation of this stark message is that violence can strike anyone, and it might be our turn next. It can also mean that if we have any information about any violent crime, it’s incumbent upon to “if we see something say something.” In other words, it’s our turn to do something.

When I got home, I did some research and I learned that the billboard was financed by Ceasefire Virginia, an organization seeking to cut down crime in Virginia’s highest-crime cities, which includes Lynchburg.

The fact that Lynchburg has a problem with gun violence comes as no surprise to me, the other day there was a shooting in the Waffle House on Wards Road that I frequently patronize.

Even people who live is small quaint towns like Bedford travel to Lynchburg for employment, recreation, dining or shopping, therefore it’s in the best interests of all us in Central Virginia to lobby our lawmakers to address the issue of gun violence.

Evangelical Pastor John Hagee Urges Congress Not to Deescalate Gaza/Israel War

The Old Testament prophet Isaiah referred to the coming messiah as “the prince of peace.” Indeed, Christ’s temperament, behavior and message was the embodiment of peace.

If Jesus, who urged his followers to “turn the other cheek”, and to “love their enemies”, returned to Earth he would be a peace ambassador seeking to deescalate wars all over the world.

Pastor John Hagee the most influential Israel lobbyist in America and an evangelical firebrand is the antithesis of the gentle and peace-loving Jesus. With the Middle East on the brink of exploding into World War III, he went to Congress to lobby lawmakers “not to deescalate” but to do something to help Israel.

Hagee wants the Gaza/Israel to spiral out of control, because according to his eschatological interpretation of the Bible that will lead to Armageddon and the Rapture of the church.

Hagee could care less that Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinians, and he could also care less that according to his interpretation of scripture Armageddon will result in the massacre of most Israelis.

Hagee’s apocalyptic sermons inspires his followers to flood him with donations, and that’s all he really cares about.

Why Hasn’t There Been a Major Hollywood Trump Biopic?

Donald Trump is the most famous, or should I say infamous, person in the world. His name recognition is right up there with Jesus, Santa Claus and the devil himself. So why in God’s name hasn’t there been a biopic depicting his career as a politician since he descended the Trump Tower golden escalator to announce his presidential candidacy?

Trump’s political career has all the ingredients for a Hollywood movie blockbuster: financial shenanigans, criminal indictments, impeachments, unbridled greed, political corruption and sex in all of its deviant variations:  extramarital affairs, golden showers, a dalliance with a porn star, sexual harassment, a protagonist with a mushroom shaped micro-penis and even allegations of rape of a minor.

The Trump life story is a film begging to be made, so why isn’t there a Trump biopic?

To begin with, you just can’t find an actor to play Trump straight out of central casting, he is a one-of-a-kind physical abomination. Pray tell where is a Hollywood casting director going to locate a septuagenarian with raccoon eyes, an orange complexion, a triple chin, a hairdo that resembles cotton candy after Russian hookers have peed on it, a mouth that resembles a sphincter, grotesque doll hands, and a beer belly that looks like it’s ready to explode. The film will require nude scenes, and exactly where can you track down an actor with a mushroom-shaped minuscule pecker.

Also, producers are afraid to make a movie about Trump because of his MAGA followers. They worship Trump as their messiah, and they won’t be pleased without anything else than a hagiography. You think Muslims are upset when the Prophet Mohammad is depicted in an unfavorable light? Imagine if Trump is accurately portrayed as a dangerous sociopath, his supporters would burn down every movie theatre that plays the Trump biopic.

We may have to wait until Trump is dead before a Trump movie is released.

Trump Farted in Courtroom During Hush-Money Trial

“What I’m hearing from credible sources is that Donald Trump is actually farting in the courtroom… I’m hearing it from actual credible people that as he’s kind of falling asleep, he’s actually passing gas and that his lawyers are really struggling with the smell.”

This quote from Ben Meiselas, the founder of the virulently anti-Trump political action committee Meidas Touch, has gone viral spreading faster than a fart in a room with no ventilation.

This noxious allegation has been debunked by Snopes, the premier fact-checking website, but there may be a whiff of truth in it. After all, it’s widely believed that Trump is incontinent. If the fat pig can’t control his bowels, it stands to reason he can’t stop himself from farting like a loose cannon.

The judge in Trump’s hush money trial has placed him under a gag order, stopping the blowhard with the sphincter-shaped mouth from attacking witnesses in his trial. Unfortunately, the judge is incapable of stopping him from polluting the courtroom with his deadly gas.

Even when Trump is napping, he is still a menace to society, gagging his own lawyers with his indiscriminate flatulence.  

The narcissist sociopath is always tooting his own horn, even when he’s asleep in court he’s still tooting away, poisoning the courtroom with his smelly toots.

Even when he’s unconscious Trump is still poisoning the atmosphere, America won’t be rid of this ill wind until he’s dead and gone.

Trump Falls Asleep in Court with Sphincter-Shaped Mouth Agape

“Maggie Haberman, a Senior Political Correspondent for the New York Times, reported today to CNN that Trump “appeared to be asleep. His head would fall down… He didn’t pay attention to a note his lawyer passed him. His jaw kept falling on his chest and his mouth kept going slack.”

Los Angeles Magazine

Donald Trump the septuagenarian former president who calls octogenarian President Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe” can’t seem to keep his eyes open in court.

If I was in court for a speeding violation, I would be so ashamed, contrite and nervous that I wouldn’t have any problems keeping my eyes open.

But Trump who is charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree, in an attempt to hide hush-money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels is so accustomed to being indicted that he just can’t stay awake in court.

According to Haberman Trump’s jaw kept falling on his chest and his sphincter-shaped mouth was agape. That is such a disturbing pornographic image, that would even keep Stormy awake at night.

I hope that the sketch artists who are present in the courtroom will depict Trump accurately with his sphincter-shaped mouth open and drool oozing down his triple chin.

Maybe at the conclusion of the trial when Trump is found guilty, he’ll finally wake up.

Michele Bachmann: Iran Will be Decimated if it Attacks Israel

“An Iranian attack on Israel is senseless and suicidal for Iran.

Iran will be decimated. Israel will survive and win against any Iranian attack.”

Michele Bachmann

Bachmann isn’t your typical evangelical yahoo perfunctory spouting off against Israel’s chief nemesis, she’s a former congresswoman who served on the House Intelligence Committee and was a former presidential candidate.

But events have proven how wrong Bachmann was, and she would be well advised to keep her geopolitical opinions within her home bible study.

The Iranian attack on Israel was not senseless, it was retaliation for Israel’s April Fool’s attack on the Iranian consulate annex building adjacent to the Iranian embassy in Damascus that killed 16 people, including Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi and seven other IRGC officers.

An attack on an embassy is considered an attack on the country it represents; it’s an act of war and Iran had no other option than to retaliate directly against Israel.

Israel needed to be humbled, the apartheid state needed to pay a price for committing genocide against the Palestinians.

Iran struck Israel with a swarm of over 300 drones, ballistic and cruise missiles, and Iran has not been decimated. Israel hasn’t yet responded and her chief benefactor, the Unites States, has informed the Jewish state that it doesn’t support miliary retaliation.

Iran is a bigger threat than Israel to stability in the Middle East, but America must not reflexively and unconditionally support Israel. We must criticize Israel when she acts recklessly, and military aid must be conditional.

Rep. Bob Good and Challenger John McGuire are ‘Stains on America’s Underwear’

Donald Trump is such an affront to humanity and such an existential threat to our democracy that he’s often compared to a stinking pile of human excrement.

Instead of recoiling in horror and distancing themselves from the orange sociopath most Republicans think that the only way they can remain viable is by copying Trump’s amoral behavior and inflammatory rhetoric.

In 2020 Republican challenger Bob Good defeated Denver Riggleman, the U.S. representative from Virginia’s 5th congressional district by attacking him for committing the unpardonable sin of officiating at the same-sex wedding of two campaign volunteers.

Since becoming a congressman Good has tried to establish his bona fides as a MAGA zealot by among other things voting to oust GOP Speaker Keven McCarthy and throwing the House into chaos. He is the chairman of the ultra-right House Freedom Caucus.

Good is running for reelection and he is facing a primary challenger from John J. McGuire, an election denier who has pledged fealty to Trump and promised to bring a “Biblical worldview” to Congress.

Good is vulnerable because he made the cardinal sin of endorsing Ron DeSantis in the Republican presidential primary. Although he immediately endorsed Trump after DeSantis withdrew from the race, he forever gained the enmity of Trump and his MAGA supporters.

Riggleman characterized Good and McGuire as “two amoral stains on America’s underwear.” They don’t have the heft and substance of Trump’s pile of dung, they are merely stains on the GOP’s underwear.

Virginia’s 5th congressional district is a safe Republican seat; therefore the winner will be a stain of human excrement.

Trump’s MAGA Rallies End with an Altar Call

An altar call is a tradition in most evangelical churches. After the pastor finishes his sermon, he issues an altar call. While the choir quietly sings an invitational hymn like “Just as I am”, the pastor beseeches his congregation to bow their heads, close their eyes, and pray for the Holy Spirit to harvest souls. The minister will plead with church members to come to the altar to rededicate their lives to Jesus and with unbelievers to walk down the aisle and make a public profession of faith. Even if only one or two souls respond to the altar car, it’s perceived as validation that the Almighty has blessed the service.

Trump’s MAGA rallies have always commenced with a local evangelical pastor saying a benediction, but lately his rallies now conclude with an altar call MAGA style. With music softly playing in the background, the orange messiah delivers a ten-minute finale that evokes an evangelical altar call.

Many MAGA cultists even bow their heads during Trump’s altar call, the only difference between a church altar call and a MAGA altar call is that Trump doesn’t ask his followers to come forward and rededicate their lives to him.

But I’m persuaded that after an hour of hearing their orange Savior rail against migrants, racial minorities and the LGBT community, Trump’s disciples leave his rallies inspired and motivated to spread his Gospel of hatred and violence.

Happy Eclipse Day/Rapture Day

“A total solar eclipse is taking place on Monday, April 8, 2024, visible across North America and dubbed the Great North American Eclipse by some media. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth.”

Wikipedia

For the vast majority of Americans there is nothing mysterious or apocalyptic about today’s total solar eclipse. It’s Science 101, and the lucky souls who live on the path of totality plan on celebrating this celestial event by donning cool eclipse glasses and downing a beer or two, or three.

Contrary to common belief, solar eclipses aren’t rare sightings. According to NASA there has been an average of 2.5 eclipses every year for the past 1,000 years.

But for many evangelical Christians the solar eclipse is a major eschatological event, and they expect Jesus Christ to rapture them out of this world during the four minutes of darkness. I’m not surprised at the gullibility and stupidity of evangelicals; they birth a new conspiracy theory every time they have a bowel movement.

While we are looking at the sun, with our protective glasses, evangelicals are looking for the Son of God to emerge from the eclipse. I won’t go into the details of why they believe Jesus will return during the eclipse, because it would make your head spin, if it doesn’t outright explode.

I don’t believe anything that’s not based on science, but wouldn’t it be great if Jesus did return today and raptured the racist, idiotic and hateful and Trump-loving evangelicals out of this world?

If Biden Debates Trump He Will Lose the Debate and the Election

Donald Trump is a boxing fan, and he usually has a ringside seat at major boxing events. Even though Trump weighs almost 300 pounds, never exercises, wears diapers instead of boxing trunks, and has tiny doll hands, he views himself as a pugilist. Trump styles himself as a counterpuncher, but actually he’s more of a down-puncher. He strikes out at subordinates and people who he deems incapable of punching back.

The orange pig will never enter a boxing ring, but the next best thing for him is the debate stage. Trump is dying to debate the physically frail and cognitively challenged Joe Biden.

Last month, the combatative politician used his Truth Social platform to dare Biden to step onto the debate stage with him, declaring that he’s prepared to debate the Democratic incumbent “ANYTIME, ANYWHRE, ANYPLACE.” The former president expressed a desire to see ten debates, rather than the usual three general election debates.

Even though Trump is just as senile as Biden he would demolish, destroy and disembowel the octogenarian president. At the first verbal jab Biden’s dentures would go flying out, he would lose his train of thought and maybe control of his bowels as well.

There is no way that Biden can compete against an adversary who breaks all the rules, talks over his opponents and lands more low blows than legitimate punches.

If Biden is foolish enough to debate Trump, he will lose the debate and the election.

Happy Easter and Transgender Day of Visibility

President Joe Biden is facing withering criticism from Donald Trump and his evangelical enablers for proclaiming March 31 as “Transgender Day of Visibility.”

This is faux outrage is exceedingly disingenuous for evangelicals are well aware that “Transgender Day of Visibility” is an annual event that is always celebrated on March 31.

Biden is a devout Catholic who always makes a public display of observing Easter and Christmas, he would be loath to do anything that would diminish any Christian holiday.

I don’t consider religiosity a virtue, and a president shouldn’t observe, commemorate, publicly celebrate or even acknowledge any religious holiday. The separation between church and state is sacrosanct, and I find it deeply offensive whenever any politician tries to curry favor with the electorate by invoking the name of God.

America is a secular democracy, and on March 31, 2024 we are free to celebrate Easter, Transgender Day of Visibility, or the pagan springtime goddess Eostre. Or maybe you are like most Americans who simply consider today just another weekend to eat a chocolate egg, relax and have a good time before we return to work.

Trump Threatens Biden with Image of President Hog-tied on Pickup Truck

As a dog returns to his own vomit, and a pig wallows in the mire after having been washed, Donald Trump returns to the cesspool of violent imagery whenever he feels a need to rile up his base.

And with President Joe Biden seeing a rise in his polls following his State of the Union speech, a desperate Trump posted a video on his Truth Social platform depicting Biden hog-tied on the bed of a pickup truck festooned with Trump 2024 insignia.

The twice-impeached and four times indicted sociopath regularly incites political violence, and it can have real world consequences, or have we already forgotten the failed insurrection of January 6, 2021? Therefore, it’s incumbent upon reporters and bloggers to put Trump on blast every time he resorts to violent rhetoric.

This latest disturbing image was calculated to appeal to the orange messiah’s redneck base, after all only his cultists read the garbage that he posts on his social media platform.

The offensive post didn’t depict a businessman in a Toyota Prius running over Biden, it showed Biden hog-tied in the tailgate of a pickup truck. I’m sure there are multitudes of MAGA fanatics who fantasize about having Biden hogtied in the back of their Ford 150 truck.

This vile Trump post may push one of his disciples over the edge. Enough is enough! I call on responsible Republican pundits and GOP leaders to denounce Trump’s violent imagery.

Trump Hawks ‘God Bless the USA Bibles’

“The former president took to Truth Social Tuesday to urge his supporters to buy the God Bless the USA Bible — a $59.99 Bible inspired by country singer Lee Greenwood’s song.

‘Happy Holy Week! Let’s Make America Pray Again. As we lead into Good Friday and Easter, I encourage you to get a copy of the God Bless the USA Bible,’ Trump posted, linking to a website featuring the books.”

Politico

In 2019 Donald Trump, the antichrist personified, autographed Bibles during a tour of tornado-devastated communities in Alabama. If the narcissist defiled Bibles by signing them with his Sharpie, I wouldn’t be surprised if he hired Russian hookers to urinate on them, and then sell them to his evangelical supporters as “the Golden Showers edition of God’s Word.”

Everything Trump touches turns to shit, but to his disciples he’s King Midas, and they believe everything he touches is worth its weight in gold.

I believe the “God Bless the USA Bible” will sell out, Trump’s followers equate patriotism with Christianity, and they will buy the cursed Bibles knowing it will fill their messiah’s coffers.

“God bless the USA Bible”? I would feel more comfortable buying a “God damn the USA Bible”, especially now as evangelicals cite the scriptures as a justification to support Israel’s genocidal war against Palestine.

Trump Doesn’t Deserve a Second Term, He Deserves a Life Term Behind Bars

When reality star and pompous businessman Donald Trump descended the golden escalator in his garish Fifth Avenue building to the perfunctory applause of curious onlookers and paid actors, he opened his trap and toxic racist rhetoric emanated from his sphincter-shaped orifice.

Who can forget his infamous remarks in which he labeled Mexican migrants rapists, criminals and drug dealers. Trump is a master at projection, and he projected his fraudulent criminal and sexual predatory behavior on the hardworking Mexican undocumented workers in search of the American Dream.

Needless to say, immigrants are model citizens, they are loathe to break any laws of their new home country, lest it hinders them from obtaining a green card, and one day citizenship.

Sadly, when America elects its Republican and Democratic presidential nominees, all too often they don’t select the best candidates. Witness the physically frail and senile Democratic nominee, Joe Biden and the morbidly obese and senile racist, Donald Trump.

Mexican immigrants aren’t the criminals, the twice-impeached and four times indicted Trump who is facing 91 criminal charges is one of the most notorious criminals to ever seek a political office.

Hispanic immigrants aren’t the rapists, it’s Trump, the serial sexual predator, who was found guilty of rape in a civil trial.

Brown and black immigrants aren’t the ones who have a problem with drugs, it was Trump’s White House that was awash in uppers, antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. That should come as no surprise to anyone, how else could aides and staffers survive working in such a chaotic and corrupt administration?

Trump doesn’t deserve a second term; he deserves a life term behind bars.

F Donald Trump

Evangelicals’ public rhetoric and private conversation has always been hateful and dismissive of religious and racial minorities, liberals and towards anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their Medieval religious beliefs.

Pre-Trump they never allowed their odious speech to degenerate into obscenities and vulgar expression. In fact, they were so averse to profanities that they were always quick to demand that a “parental advisor warning” be slapped on any album with explicit content or even just a few curse words.

But since they adopted Donald Trump, the stinking pile of human shit, as their new messiah, they praise God for every obscenity that emanates from his sphincter-shaped mouth and they no longer think it’s a sin to sprinkle their conversation with four-letter words. Evangelicals find it almost impossible not to use cuss words when demonizing racial minorities, immigrants and the LGBT community.

Well, I find it impossible not to use dirty words when talking about the dirtiest mother fucker who ever entered the realm of politics, Donald Trump.

Fuck Donald Trump, fuck every church that supports him, and fuck white evangelicals who sacrilegiously worship the trick-ass, mother-fucken wanker.

The D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA is Wonderful

I started posting editorials for the online edition of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in 1998, and when my essays were cited by established print publications like the New York Times and the Associated Press, I presciently told me friends that in the near future newspapers would be obsolete.

Almost three decades later and newspapers may not be obsolete, but they have seen a drastic drop in circulation, and many only have an online presence.

Twenty-eight years later I’m no longer a big fish in a small pond, I’m just a minnow in an ocean of bloggers, podcasters, influencers and vloggers, and my online essays receive virtually no attention from the mainstream media.

Sometimes I submit letters to the editor to local newspapers, and recently in a letter that was published by the Bedford Bulletin I mentioned that I have lived in Lynchburg for 24 years and never visited the D-Day Memorial.

Bill a retired gentleman who volunteers as a tour guide and is also part of the maintenance crew, read my letter and sent me an email offering to give me a tour of the D-Day Memorial. His friend Reggie drove me to Bedford and back to Lynchburg.

Bill has an encyclopedic knowledge of World War II in general and D-Day in particular. In my 66 years I’ve taken many tours of museums, memorials and other attractions, and no tour guide has ever impressed me as much with his knowledge of the attraction, respect for the visitors and love for his job. We were joined in the golf cart tour by his friends and fellow volunteers, Steve and Reggie.

Thank God for community newspapers like the Bedford bulletin that are still publishing print editions, and thank God for salt of the earth gentleman like Bill, Steve and Reggie.
