(http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-says-mueller-s-friendship-comey-very-bothersome-n775906)
". . . President Donald Trump said he's concerned over the friendship between former FBI Director James Comey and special counsel Robert Mueller, who was selected to replace Comey to investigate the Russian meddling in the 2016 election. . . In an interview that aired Friday on "Fox and Friends," Trump said Mueller is "very, very good friends with Comey, which is very bothersome.". . ."

Wishfull . . .

The black coffee’s aroma hangs thick like a cloud every morning
He sorts through paisleys and patterns and stripes on the door
As he lifts up a vain little finger to stifle the blood
From a close shave in the battle of life
The late night crowd’s returning from an all night bout of drinking
While he’s all-consumed by grand delusions also known as wishful thinking

His star quality seems to escape everyone
Who would be in position to help him
Still he goes off each day in anticipation of all
Of the thrill and the joy that one feels
When he’s making interment arrangements
He’s misunderstood
A book a song a TV sitcom part you’d miss for blinking
Or a winning lotto ticket in his hand is only wishful thinking

Oh its nobody’s fault but his own
So few offers come over the phone
But he still perseveres faces up to his fears
That can cloud the intentions and bring on the tears

Still his spirits get lower each day that this program’s protracted
Moment by moment it takes all he has to go on
But he just grits his teeth charges in slings the arrows back into
The face of outrageous misguided conclusions
And even though he’ll never die a pauper or a rich king
He’s just not content to spend his time on anything but wishful thinking

Oh the groceries and the bills aren’t paid by talking or by drinking
So he just resumes the grind lacklusterly and does his wishful thinking


Wishful Thinking

Twisted . . .

. . . logic . . .



(http://www.npr.org/2017/06/21/533889445/after-georgia-win-a-triumphant-trump-returns-to-campaign-trail-in-iowa)
". . . it was freewheeling Trump as he jumped from topic to topic, strayed off-message, made some head-scratching remarks and revisited some old campaign trail favorites. . . In talking about his cadre of advisers, he boasted about their financial pedigrees — even though he'd slammed Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail or being too close to those same interests. . . "We have Gary Cohn, who is the president of Goldman Sachs. He's the president of Goldman Sachs. He had to pay $200 million dollars in taxes to take the job, right? So, somebody said 'Why did you appoint a rich person to be in charge of the economy?' I said, 'Because that's the kind of thinking we want,' " Trump said, adding that Cohn and other multimillionaires in his Cabinet had to "give up a lot" in taking administration jobs, going from "massive paydays to peanuts.". . ."

Strange . . .

. . . that he (see below) says, ". . . an election that they should have won. . . "  What does THAT mean?


(http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/issues-raised-report-mueller-looking-possible-trump-obstruction-justice-n772641)
" . . . But Trump also raised the Russia investigation, saying of the decision to fire Comey: "When I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story. It’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.". . . "

Weather . . .

. . . or not? . . .



(from http://www.snopes.com/politics/science/coleman.asp)
". . . John Coleman is a former television weather forecaster who worked in that field for over six decades, at a number of different TV stations across the U.S., until he suddenly retired from his last job at KUSI-TV in San Diego in April 2014. Coleman pioneered the use of such now-standard TV weather forecasting elements as onscreen satellite technology and computer graphics, and he was also instrumental in the founding of The Weather Channel (TWC) on cable television, serving as that channel’s CEO and President during its establishment and its first year of operation. . . John Coleman also became, in later years, an outspoken critic of the global warming issue. . . "all of it, comes down to their claim that the carbon dioxide in the exhaust from your car and in the smoke stacks from our power plants is destroying the climate of planet Earth. What an amazing fraud; what a scam. . . There is no significant man made global warming. There has not been any in the past, there is none now and there is no reason to fear any in the future. The climate of Earth is changing. It has always changed. But mankind’s activities have not overwhelmed or significantly modified the natural forces. . . ". . .
Although this item is superficially “true” in the sense that the words quoted above were indeed written by John Coleman, the statement that they “refute” global warming (i.e., prove it to be false) is something of an exaggeration. As Coleman’s critics have noted, he does not hold a degree in climatology or any related discipline, nor has he studied or conducted any research in that field; he merely parrots arguments advanced by others:  Both Fox News and CNN have recently invited John Coleman, one of the founders of The Weather Channel and former TV meteorologist, to express his views about climate change to their national audiences. Coleman is simply an awful choice to discuss this issue. He lacks credentials, many of his statements about climate change completely lack substance or mislead . . . Coleman hasn’t published a single peer-reviewed paper pertaining to climate change science. His career, a successful and distinguished one, was in TV weather for over half a century, prior to his retirement in San Diego last April. If you watch Coleman on-camera, his skill is obvious. He speaks with authority, injects an irreverent sense of humor and knows how to connect with his viewer. . . But a climate scientist, he is not. . . For the many Americans who don’t understand the difference between weather — the short-term behavior of the atmosphere — and climate — the broader system in which weather happens — Coleman’s professional background made him a genuine authority on global warming. It was an impression that Coleman encouraged. Global warming “is not something you ‘believe in,'” he wrote in his essay. “It is science; the science of meteorology. This is my field of life-long expertise.” . . . Except that it wasn’t. Coleman had spent half a century in the trenches of TV weathercasting; he had once been an accredited meteorologist, and remained a virtuoso forecaster. . . "

King . . .


(from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvLQyIJJAqE, comments on a video of a recent speech)
"God bless President Donald J Trump and his supporters!!!"
   
"We have the hottest girls in our party! Not those gross sweaty, hairy, smelly democrats with no job and no future."

"But a face has lips too."

"US politics is strange"

"I love how excited the women got when President Trump looked at them!!"

"Troll, get a life."

"Trump just needs to look at a woman and she'll have an orgasm"

"God bless President Trump!"

". . . president Trump God is with us we don't need the dirty money from the bad guys. God bless you!!!!!  we worship God we DON'T  worship the government."

"Does he realise he's president?"

"I don't care if you are left or right wing. Trumps female supporters are wayyyy better looking.

"Conservative women are so hot!"

"Man...Trump is legit.  Straight boss."



(from https://idiomation.wordpress.com/tag/in-the-land-of-the-blind-the-one-eyed-man-is-king/)
“In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king” i

“In un mondo di ciechi un orbo รจ re.”

“Those that rule must hear and be deaf, must see and be blind.”

“When a blind man bears the standard, pity those who follow.”

“If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”

“Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit?”

“The One-Eyed Man Is King.”

Building . . .


. . . the tune Blood Brother with OHO and Bill Pratt . . .


I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My ha - ands

Bar rooms sure have a funny way
Of bringing loyalty out in a man
Buy a drink and tell a joke
And buddy you've got you a friend
But keep a good eye upon that friend
Because he really doesn't give two hoots
And don't say anything about his Mom
His girlfriend or his army boots

I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My ha - ands

Walked into an auto-mo-showroom
I need some wheels but got no money to spend
When a guy with an ugly tie
Walks out and acts like he's my long-lost friend
I said hey Buddy I've a purpose here
And if you please I will accomplish my goal
So don't you slap me on the back again
Cause if you do I might just lose my control

I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My ha - ands

So please be careful when you meet someone
Who'll make a promise at the drop of a hat
And don't provide them with encouragement
You will regret the day you offered him that
Cause everybody needs some empathy
But just how willing
And how far will they go
To really help you when the chips are down
Can they be trusted half as far as you throw them

I'll be your Blood Brother
By your side through thick and thin
I'll be your Blood Brother
Just as long as I don't have to bloody
My ha - ands


Blood Brother

Never . . .


(from (http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/fact-check-trump-says-he-passed-more-bills-most-presidents-n771116))
". . . "I will say that never has there been a president - with few exceptions, in the case of FDR he had a major Depression to handle - who's passed more legislation, who's done more things than what we've done," President Donald Trump boasted on Monday morning, touting his executive orders, Supreme Court judge appointment, and rate of bill signing. "We've achieved tremendous success. I think we've been about as active as you can possibly be at a just about record-setting pace.". . .
But a stack of paper does not productivity make: As PolitiFact noted previously, "None of the bills Trump has signed into law are particularly significant.". . . Three of those bills were appointing three members to the Smithsonian's board, another approved a war memorial, a fifth promoted women in entrepreneurship, and a sixth encouraged the display of the American flag on Vietnam War Veterans Day. . . While their bill signings may trail Trump's, many of his predecessors won significant legislative achievements in their first 100 days. . . Obama signed an $800 billion stimulus. Bill Clinton inked the Family Medical Leave Act. Lyndon Johnson championed the stalled Civil Rights Act. John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps. . .A federal appeals court refused to reinstate his (Trump's) travel ban on residents of a group of Muslim-majority nations, dealing his second order barring certain travelers yet another legal blow. He's yet to fully repeal and replace Obamacare or secure funding from Mexico or Congress to begin any kind of meaningful border wall construction. . . . he's had little legislative action on the slew of vague plans he's released on issues like infrastructure and tax reform. . . Most of his agenda remains just that: Plans that have yet to be accomplished. . ."

Conspiracy . . .


(from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tin_foil_hat)
". . . A tin foil hat is a hat made from one or more sheets of aluminum foil, or a piece of conventional headgear lined with foil, worn in the belief or hope that it shields the brain from threats such as electromagnetic fields, mind control, and mind reading. The notion of wearing homemade headgear for such protection has become a popular stereotype and byword for paranoia, persecutory delusions, and belief in pseudoscience and conspiracy theories. Foil hats have appeared in the films Signs and Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder. Note that "tin foil" is a common misnomer for aluminum foil; packaging metal foil was formerly made out of tin before it was replaced with aluminum. . ."
