P.E. is on vacation until February 22



This is where I'll be for 2 1/2 weeks.

No blogging. 

No. Trumpie news.

Just sand, sea, sun, and lots and lots of fun. 

And a very special man to enjoy it with.

Be excellent to each other.

REALITY



The Trumpers believe President Porn Star Shagger hit a home run last night, but instead, he struck out with his many lies.

IN SOTU, TRUMP WARNS INVESTIGATIONS WILL HURT THE ECONOMY


"An incoherent psychotic speech composed of cookies and dog-poop." -- @VanJones68, with the punditry we deserve.








FROM MOTHER JONES:


President Trump references 'partisan investigations' during the , infers they could disrupt the economy. Watch live: https://reut.rs/2D8P0Kh 



Aides to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, one of the many Democrats in the House chamber on Tuesday to appear taken aback by the line, swiftly responded on social media to signal that the new Democratic House majority would not be deterred from providing oversight: 
Sorry, sir. But Article 1 of the Constitution is the legislative branch. And it has the responsibility to exercise oversight of the other branches of government. We would be delinquent in our duties if we failed to provide the necessary oversight.



The line also drew parallels to similar remarks made by President Richard Nixon during his State of the Union in 1974.
"If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation." - Trump's SOTU, 2019

"I believe the time has come to bring that investigation and the other investigations of this matter to an end. One year of Watergate is enough." - Nixon's SOTU, 1974




Echoes of Nixon saying one year of Watergate is enough, as Trump says: "If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation."



 Also, Trump was WRONG about the US's "HOTTEST" economy:

The best speech of the evening:

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

The Republicans' president is using the SOTU to beg Americans for money.




Trump campaign: Send us $1 and we'll scroll your name during State of the Union live stream


 "After initially asking donors to send at least $35 in exchange for having their names scrolled during a live stream of the president's speech, the Trump campaign later send out an email solicitation saying only one dollar would do. 

"Even if you choose to only give $1, the proof of your support will send shockwaves around the world as they see every American who proudly stands behind our President," said the pitch signed by the president's son, Eric Trump. "

The fundraising technique is raising eyebrows from ethics watchdogs, who say the unprecedented attempt to raise money off an official White House event crosses a line. 

 'Donald Trump is commercializing and corrupting yet another national institution, making this just the latest disgraceful degradation by Trump of the presidency and our public institutions,' said Robert Weissman, president, Public Citizen."





America's con artist is at it again, using what is called for in the US Constitution to raise money for his next campaign.

Like everything he touches, Trump degrades and corrupts even this traditional Constitutional requirement.

Shame on Trump and everyone connected with this abomination.

Democracy Dies in Darkness



Excellent Super Bowl presentation on freedom of the press.

A slap in the face to Trump's calling America's media "The Enemy of the People."

Trump mouths the words of every tyrant and every enemy of freedom when he calls the free press "Fake News," and "America's Enemy."

Trump's anti-American attack on the 1st Amendment will go down in American history as an attack on our Constitution.

May we ALWAYS have the courage to speak truth to power.
