Hi everyone! I’ve been a little busy these days trying to learn a new process. It’s a steep learning curve. Think right angle. Fortunately, my friend Biff says he can fill in for awhile.
Biff is an ex- mail carrier, football player, and sometimes hacker living in the greater metropolitan area.
His likes are puppies, fountain pens, and a superior espresso.
His dislikes include hypocrisy, beets, and mean people.
(Hmmmm, I didn’t know you liked puppies. This changes everything. And you dislike beets?? Since when?)
The 21st century has harshed his mellow. So, he tends to bastardize Trump tweets for clarity.
Speaking of bastardizations:
“Illegitamus non carborundum.”
Donald Trump has broken out his twitter account again, communicating directly to the American people.
He tweeted early this morning on the unfairness of the continued witchhunt against
his administration for its close relationships to Russia and Vladimir Putin.
Donald J. Trump
Was the brother of John Podesta
paid BIG money to get the
sanctions on Russia lifted?
I don't think so. Jared
and Mike got paid MUCH more.
THEY knew how to negotiate with Russians.
We never get any credit for that.
“Jared” is presumably Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, current senior advisor to the president, and
“Mike” is presumably former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
Given the amount of time that Congress, the intelligence agencies, and the media have devoted to the subject
it seems wrong for Trump to complain that they are not getting coverage, but if this posting does anything to
hilight the issue for him, Donald, you’re welcome.
This was followed by something a little more cryptic:
Donald J. Trump
Hillary Hillary Podesta
Hillary Wiener Huma HILLARY
Other than identifying Trump’s preferred 2020 campaign rival, it is unclear what this tweet
refers to. His 2020 campaign is officially in full swing, however.
In early January,
that the Trump campaign headquarters are open for business, and ten staffers are busy building
databases and raising funds. Frugally housed in one of the lower floors of Trump Towers, on
5th Avenue in Manhattan, staffers said that as long as New York City taxpayers were footing the security
bill, it would be irresponsible to locate anywhere else.
for protecting the Trump family and businesses
in this location have ranged from $150,000 to more than half a million dollars per day.
Estimated income to the Trump Organization for the lease on the suite was unavailable at press time.
On January 20th, the campaign filed documents with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC).
The FEC Form 2 document is to ensure compliance with the
Federal Election Campaign Act Legislation of 1971 (FECAL).
Staffers, who spoke off the record, as they had not been authorized to speak to the mainstream press, said that
the early campaign opening was necessary to keep Trump’s campaign promise of reducing financial influence on campaigns.
As explained in a post at Disobedient Media,
the Form 2 submission will prevent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations,
such as those run by Trump political opponent George Soros, from engaging in any “political speech” that might affect
the 2020 presidential outcome, for risk of losing their non-profit status.
Unofficially, the staffers conceded that their activities mean we are now “mid-campaign”,
and that the Senate should suspend all hearings for Supreme Court nominees until after the election
is decided. “But we hope no one notices that,” was whispered.
In a third tweet, Trump said:
Donald J. Trump
Such amazing reporting unmasking
the crooked schemes by
Based on the timing of the tweet, just 12 minutes following a CNN report on the subject,
it presumably refers to the ongoing celebrations at Fox News around a culture of sexual harassment
lead by former chairman Roger Ailes, and being spearheaded now by Bill O’Reilly.
