More Rambling Bits ‘N Bits ‘N Pieces

Mind bounce has returned and brought about a strange rattling noise in my head, as well as a popping in the ears, and a swirling sensation when I stand.  And so, this morning I must start your day with a few random bits ‘n pieces from that strange place inside my head.


And the question is …

This week, we learned what questions Robert Mueller plans to ask Donald Trump if Trump consents to an interview (a matter in which he may have no choice).  The questions, along with an analysis of what they may indicate, can be found in the New York Times article titled, The Questions Mueller Wants to Ask Trump About Obstruction, and What They Mean.  The reason we know what these questions are is that they were leaked, not by anyone on Mueller’s team, but by somebody with connections to Trump’s own legal team.  Trump, of course, is blathering that the leak was ‘disgraceful’ … he seems to like to use that word quite a lot, doesn’t he?  Perhaps it’s because he looks in the mirror first thing every morning.

I am, for the moment, veering away from saying much about the questions or likely answers.  Why?  Because … think about this one, folks.  What difference does it really make?  Do you honestly think that Donald Trump will tell the truth if he is interviewed?  Seriously?  Do you think he is even capable of telling the truth.  Why, I could write answers to those questions right now that would come as close to the truth as anything that will emit from Trump’s foul mouth!  But, he’ll be under oath, you say?  So?  He was also under oath on 20 January 2017 when he said, “I, Donald  John Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” And by the end of the day, he would already have broken that oath.

Oaths, promises and truth mean nothing to people like Trump. I support and applaud Robert Mueller for his organization, persistence and determination to get at the truth.  But the only way he will get the truth from Donald Trump will be if he connects him to a polygraph machine, and we all know that isn’t going to happen.  So again, why even bother?


A slight bit of humour …

French President Emmanuel Macron visited Australia for talks on trade and regional security yesterday.  At the end of a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Macron said …

“I want to thank you for your welcome. Thank you and your delicious wife for your warm welcome.”

Rather reminds me of the time in 1963 when a line from President John F. Kennedy’s speech in Berlin was translated as “I am a jelly donut”.

Thought you needed a bit of a chuckle.  Moving on …


Classless, Tasteless … Abominable …

Kemp.pngMeet Brian Kemp, currently Georgia’s Secretary of State, but running for Governor of that state in November. Mr. Kemp likes his guns.  I ask you to watch the following 30-second ad he is currently airing and tell me what you think …

I am betting that you are as appalled as I am. In a tweet last week, he wrote …

“I’m a conservative businessman with a 4-Point Plan to put hardworking Georgians first. I’m also the proud father of 3 teenage girls. Here’s the thing: If you want to date one of my daughters, you better have respect for women & a healthy appreciation for the 2nd Amendment.”

This sets my teeth on edge and sends a chill down my spine.  While many were appalled, even a number of gun owners, others saw nothing amiss, calling it ‘hilarious’ and ‘clever’ …

“A politician who doesn’t feel the need to do things the ‘politically correct’ way and stands for his beliefs, despite knowing that masses of our soft society will be offended. I’m sold!”

“Great commercial. Mockingly blasts through today’s hyper-PC nonsense.”

What have we become?

Pooh-sad


AHA!!!  Gotcha!!!

giulianiLast month, it was announced that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani would be joining Trump’s chaotic legal team, after the departure of John Dowd in March.  I once respected Giuliani.  I have not ever since he sold his soul for the chance to lick the boots of Donald Trump.  When the announcement was made, Trump said …

“Rudy is great. He has been my friend for a long time and wants to get this matter quickly resolved for the good of the country.”

‘This matter’, of course, referred to the investigation by Robert Mueller and his team.  Giuliani himself said that he felt the investigation could possibly be closed within a couple of weeks.

Now, remember how Donald Trump and his lawyer/fixer, Michael Cohen both tried to claim that the $130,000 paid to porn star Stormy Daniels to buy her silence about her affair with Trump in October 2016 was paid by Cohen and that Trump had no knowledge of said payment?  Well, guess what, folks?  Methinks somebody is not telling the truth.  GASP!!!

Rudy Giuliani appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show last night where he plainly stated, for all the world to hear, that Donald Trump reimbursed Mr. Cohen the $130,000.  He said it and then, when questioned by Hannity, he repeated it!!! And when Hannity seemed to be trying to help Rudy out of this situation, Rudy emphatically stated it again!  I am eager to see Trump wiggle his fat patootie out of this one, aren’t you?

Cobb-Flood

Ty Cobb & Emmet Flood

Oh, and by the way … in case you hadn’t heard, another rat jumped ship yesterday.  Ty Cobb, the Trump attorney who had been working closest with Robert Mueller’s investigation, resigned.  No surprise there.  He has been replaced by Emmet Flood.  Now what’s interesting about this is that Flood was the attorney who represented Bill Clinton during his impeachment trial.  Hmmmm …  🤔 … could it be that Donnie is beginning to see the handwriting on the wall?


Well, folks, that’s all I have for the moment, but stay tuned, for I’m sure to be back with more later on.

  1. Dear Jill,
    The thing about having Donald Trump in the White House is that now, any idiot thinks he or she can run for an elected position. I used to be like you where I would predict their demise but now, I am no longer certain.
    Hugs, Gronda

    • You’re right … so many bloomin’ idiots out there! No, we cannot accurately predict because none of this is normal … none of it is even remotely sane! Sigh. I’m glad I have you and my other WordPress friends to talk to, else I would go nuts!
      Hugs!!!

  3. Kinda like reading a sequel to Star Wars and hoping, as all good stories must provide, for the intervention from the Jedi and an “all’s well that ends well.” Hmmm… maybe this isn’t fiction? Maybe this is actually going on in real life? If I were of the survivor type I’d feel a bit edgy these days knowing that the only thing separating ‘us’ from ‘that’ is a slash through the bush about ten miles south of here.

    • Ahhh … hopefully one of these days, in yet another sequel, I will have that Jedi intervention, that happy ending to report! Meanwhile, be thankful you are on the other side of the border. 😉

  4. Jill, I do not see Guiliani working for Trump very long. Two people who can’t keep quiet that cannot remember the lies that have been told. To sum up, Trump said first he was unaware of the $130K pay off and alleges no affair. Then he said Cohen did it but it was his own money. Now, Guiliani said Trump paid it back. Then, Trump said it was not with campaign funds. Again, this is all about an affair he said never happened.

    It rivals his changing story on when he knew about the Junior meeting with the Russians. My question is why are not more people questioning why this man cannot stick to his story. My favorite quote is from Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy who said “If he is innocent, it would help his case if he started acting that way.” Congressman, the truth is sitting right in the middle of your statement – he is not innocent. And, this “ain’t no witch hunt.” Keith

    • Trump really needs to keep a notebook to keep his lies straight … how many times now has he changed his story on Stormy Daniels? Does he not realize how utterly stupid this makes him look? And no, I doubt Giuliani lasts more than another week or so … I think Trump wished he could fire him this morning. 😀

    • I doubt he will, for many are up in arms (no pun intended) over this ad. But then, my predictive skills, as we all know, aren’t all that good these days. Hopefully there is a sane person running against him … I’ll have to take a look.
