Russian Sanctions refused by Trump Administration

Barack Obama

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

 

The Trump administration has usurped the power of the congress and refused to impose sanctions against Russia despite lawmakers declaring it necessary by an overwhelming majority in mid-2017. A State Department official said, “Today, we have informed Congress that this legislation and its implementation are deterring Russian defense sales. Since the enactment of the . . . legislation, we estimate that foreign governments have abandoned planned or announced purchases of several billion dollars in Russian defense acquisitions.”

Did you get that?

Traditionally sanctions by their very notion represent a punishment for an action. It is usually placed as a method to counter adversarial behavior through economic lessening. I’m surely beginning to understand why my dear friend, “The Lady In The Bag,” calls this chump, King Trump.

Trump threat Andrew McCabe is Out

Andrew McCabe

America’s hand has never trembled more than it does now as yet another FBI higher up steps down. On Monday, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told his people that he is out. He was expected to leave for retirement in March, but changed his mind, likely due to pressure from his commander in chief. He had been a target of the White House over its entanglement with Russia and voter fraud or collusion.

McCabe was eligible to retire in march but with accumulated leave he was able to leave early, with no arguments from the Trump administration who are doing all that can be done to snip away the threat of truth.

Officials say Trump had nothing to do with the decision, and those close to the FBI say McCabe said that it was his call. He is being replaced by Assistant Deputy Director David Bowdich who will be the FBI’s acting deputy director.

US President Booed at Davos

Davos

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

Trump booed at Davos for attacking media during the three day long conference of 1 percenters. On Friday after a fake pro America speech during a q&a session Trump called the media “vicious, Mean and Fake” to a solid chorus of boos.

The New York businessman became a house hold face and name on the cover of tabloids during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. While most American have become callous to the rhetoric, the rest of the world seems to abhor the sentiment. US presidents have traditionally been exponents of the media, and most have a quasi symbiotic relationship with the press. Despite the benefits this guy seems to hate the very institution that has made him successful.

The founder of the conference was also assaulted with boos after throwing a few jabs at the media, the three day long conference ended on Friday.

What is the Davos World Economic Forum? In 1971, Klaus Schwab formed a new foundation and planned the first academic, economic and management symposium. He was motived due to recently returning from a year at Harvard University and the desire to share his fresh expertise in US management systems with the world. The first forum was attended by 450 people looking for a business and academic advantage.

 

It grew quickly and was attended going forward by business leaders and later political leaders and is now considered the preeminent meeting for the 1 percenters. The forum is held in Davos, Switzerland, a small Alpine town with a normal population of about 10,000.

Lady in the Bag: Part I - What Would MLK Do and Say Today?

What would MLK do today

Scribe:  Lady In The Bag

Email:  lady@thethinkering.com

 

I have been called upon, by the universe, to channel MLK (THE Reverend) and assume (in my limited, humble capacity) the daunting task of portending Reverend King’s nonviolent approach to the current misguided folks who have forgotten America’s past promises and duty to protect ALL Americans (not just the select few). Any attempt to prognosticate what lies ahead would fail unless we remember the past, be present in the here and now and anticipate whats to come.

Amanda Staveley offered a whopping £250m or $347,367,500 to buy the Newcastle United soccer club. Rumors that the offer had been rejected has been refuted by Staveley’s spokesperson.

Her PCP Capital Partners confirmed on Thursday their offer had not been rescinded and they still believe a deal can be made with Mike Ashley to take ownership. On Tuesday it was believed the deal was off the table after a source close to Ashley said, "It is only right to let the fans know there is no deal on the table or even under discussion with Amanda Staveley and PCP."

Haiti dumped form low skilled Workers Visas

Haiti bumped

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

In another derisive move the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) removed Haiti from a list of countries whose citizens are permitted to apply for low-skilled work visas. Just last week the country was referred to as a shithole country by the commander in chief of the US military.

Democrats joined a chorus of others proclaiming Trump as a racist and an exponent of white supremacy. Experts in the field cite this decision as evidence of his wrath against many citizens of the country.

Lady in the bag: Shut the Front Door!

Jail Trump

WUT? WORD! TRUMP! LOCK HIM UP! TRUMP! LIAR! TRUMP! A**HOLE! TRUMP! BIGOT! TRUMP! RACIST! TRUMP! CRUEL! TRUMP! DECEITFUL! TRUMP! MISOGYNIST! TRUMP! Ghandi opined, “You should not cooperate with evil.”

WOW! I do feel a bit better, since I finally blurted out my true impressions of King Trump; when I think that he cannot further compromise America’s status, as a democratic nation of laws and values, with foreign countries and American citizens, he shocks sensibilities and is more destructive than a massive apocalyptic event. He continues to repeat four refrains: 1: “Believe me! Believe me!” 2: “I NEVER said that, never, not me.” 3. “The press is out to get me!” and 4. “Let’s change the libel laws!”

Introducing the President of the United States and the Women he Abused

Trump Abuse

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

 

We all held Barack Obama to a very high standard as we watched him run and win the presidency of the United States twice. Never was there an allegation that made us consider whether he was honorable  enough for the  high office. He did and the quality of person he has proved to be has left most people proud to have had the opportunity to vote for him.

Donald Trump was sworn in nearly a year ago, and before he got as far as the inauguration he had to settle a New York lawsuit. Trump University who the state of New York says didn't’t met the qualifications to be called a University was shut down by the state. The class action suit was settled for $25 million. He allegedly fraudulently took advantage of people attempting to learn more about the real estate business, it wasn't’t his first time in court.

This guy’s morality has always been in question.
