Trump lied about his taxes? Nooooooooooooooooo!


From the 2020 Biden/Trump debate:

WALLACE: No, Mr. President, I’m asking you a question. Will you tell us how much you paid in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017? 

TRUMP: Millions of dollars. 

WALLACE: So not $750? 

TRUMP: Millions of dollars. And you’ll get to see it. And you’ll get to see it.

"Trump 'received more than $55 million in gross income from more than 12 countries, including Azerbaijan, Panama, Canada and Qatar” and his 2020 “returns showed that he filed foreign tax credits in more than 12 countries, including China, Qatar and Israel.' ” 

"Trump had pledged on taking office to enter into no new foreign deals to avoid conflicts of interest, but he continued to receive income from foreign business dealings throughout his time as president. So much for avoiding those acknowledged foreign conflicts of interest."

Trump was asked about the Chinese bank account during the debates. He said he closed it before he ran for president. A lie.   (Imagine if Barack Obama had income from China on his tax returns. The right wingers would have swallowed their tongues in rage!)

"The returns also [show] that Trump — who used to brag of his philanthropic efforts — has given relatively little money to charity. In the 2019 tax year, he reported just over $500,000 in charitable donations and he reported giving no money at all to charity in 2020 — the first year of the coronavirus pandemic that upended the economy, led to widespread job losses and forced many Americans to rely on charity and food banks."

Between 2015 - 2019 Paid $1,776,342 in taxes. 
2020 PAID ZERO; GOT REFUND $5,470000 
ERASES and recovers all he paid 
plus MADE additional $3,693,658

The Republican/Trumpublican Party -- The Shame of America


“Santos is a really just a petty criminal from Rio de Janeiro. He is currently wanted in Brazil on criminal charges of elder fraud and check forgery. He stole checkbooks from elderly patients of his mother - and forged checks to steal merchandise, per prosecutors in Brazil.”

The congressman-elect confirmed The New York Times’s findings that he had not graduated from college or worked at two major Wall Street firms, as he had claimed.

The Trumpublican Party that still supports Trump -- a Liar, a Cheat, and a Fraud, -- is prepared to seat George Santos, a Liar, a Cheat, and a Fraud, as a U.S. Representative after finding out that everything he campaigned on and was subsequently elected on was a  LIE!


The GOP's newest Liar, Cheat, and Fraud

When are lies about one's background, accomplishments, affiliations, (and everything else) so great, so material, that the electorate can fairly be said not to have elected that person to office? In the business world, Santos would immediately be fired for lying about his graduation and accomplishments. His resignation should not be in question, except he is part of the Republican party that puts power ahead of morals.

The people of Santos's district voted for a gay Jewish college graduate with a successful career on Wall Street, who self-financed his campaign. That person does not exist. If this result is allowed to stand, elections truly are meaningless. 

The same party that lied about Herschel Walker’s past, and that endorsed a candidate that they knew lied about his qualifications (Santos), continues to push a narrative that Democrats can’t be trusted!

George Santos actually said today that, “I never said I was Jewish … I said I was Jew-ish.” 

No really, he said this. That's right up there with saying you’re going to give someone a Toyota and then giving them a "toy Yoda."

"McCarthy on November 19th said with the election of George Santos, they have the largest Republican Jewish Caucus in 24 years."

Except the GQP doesn't, because George Santos LIED about being Jewish. And the Party of Liars, Cheaters, and Frauds happily welcomes another Liar, Cheater, and Fraud into its club.

Russian Heroes!


Russian state tv celebrated these two members of America's House of Representatives for disrespecting President Zelensky as he addressed the U.S. Congress.  

Yes. The two people below are heroes in Russia-- y'know, the country that bombed hospitals and orphanages in Ukraine, and that set up torture cells for children.

The two unspeakable ugly people below made Russia proud!

January 6 Report:

The January 6 Report is released to the public. The conclusion: 

“The central cause of January 6th was one man, Donald Trump”.


Trump should never be allowed to hold public office again. He's a disgrace to America and to himself. Trouble is, narcissists like Trump care nothing about their disgraceful behavior, they don't have the self-reflection needed to be ashamed of their actions.

Trump is a thoroughly immoral, thoroughly corrupt human being. I wish for a day when there is no news about Trump. He has been the bane of Democracy and a disgrace to the Republicans and America herself. 

America's disgrace:

Zelensky with a real leader vs. Zelensky with a petulant man-child.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

We are well rid of Trump.

House committee votes to make Trump’s tax returns public

The Trumpublicans Want Everyone to "Move On?"


Never before in history has any former President of the United States been referred to Department of Justice for prosecution for criminal behavior. Not Andrew Johnson, not Richard Nixon.

And never before in my life or yours did we ever hear of a POTUS mouthing these traitorous words:

"Still one of the most chilling moments. Hutchinson: The crowd is calling for Pence to be effing hung. 

 Meadows: "You heard [Trump]. He doesn't want to do anything. He thinks Pence deserves it."

How does any American read that first person account statement from Trump's Chief of Staff, --a man who was the closest to Trump during the attack on the U.S. government, -- how does anyone read that and not feel revulsion?

The Trump cultists and those who believe we've spent too much time on "the clown," and that we should move on, are the ones, IMO, who have weakened our form of democratic government by not calling for Trump to be held accountable for his crimes.

Those Trump cultists and people who think they're "above the fray" want us to pretend that there was no multi-pronged conspiracy to defraud the U.S. to REALLY steal the 2020 presidential election that involved fake electors; pressure on state election officials; pressure on VP Pence; lie after lie to Americans; and calling protesters to DC to put pressure on Congress. 

 "Just say the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the Republican congressmen." -- DJT

Trump's cultists want America to forget what he did and just move on as though it never happened. 

The party that was once the party of "law and order" is now the party of lawlessness and mayhem, all in service to a Liar, a Cheat, a Fraud, and now a man who's been criminally charged with "aiding and comforting" insurrectionists who wanted to "Hang Mike Pence," and stop the certification of the electoral vote.

How does a country of laws, not men, move on from that?

Title 18 Section 1512(c), which makes it unlawful for anyone to corruptly "obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding" of the United States government.

In an opening statement, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), the panel’s vice chairwoman, accused Trump of an “utter moral failure and a clear dereliction of duty” and said he is “unfit for any office.”

“The whole purpose and obvious effect of Trump’s scheme were to obstruct influence and impede this official proceeding: The central moment for the lawful transfer of power in the United States,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said.

Here's Trump's video announcement on his latest grift. 

He tells his cultists that he's "...better than Lincoln, better than Washington...," and then goes on to explain his exciting new scam -- another con to separate his gullibles from their money.

Why do I put this up on my blog? 

Donald Trump wants to be POTUS again. He's announced that he will run in the 2024, and people need to be reminded about what he is.

Certain ight wing bloggers and news sites have never stopped supporting this grifter, and I'm certain his newest embarrassing scheme will not dissuade them one bit from their continued support for this clown.

Donald Trump is the embodiment of the current Republican Party, and that says everything about who they are:


Donald Trump preparing for his "Super Hero" major announcement today:

Well! Here's Trump's BIG announcement! Is it about his plans for making America great again by working to better Americans' lives? 


NO!  His BIG announcement is about GRIFTING and glorifying HIM! 

Digital Trump trading cards at $99 apop! Yes. You heard that right, folks!

Always the grifting conman and huckster:

Is this one being offered?

Or this one?

"MT Greene was among the 34 members of Congress that Mark Meadows was texting as they plotted to stage a coup. Is it any wonder she wants to gut the DOJ?"


Marjorie Taylor Greene’s January 6th comments at New York Young Republican Club Gala:

 “I got to tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, it would’ve been armed.”

MT Greene proudly tells her audience, and now the world, that if she and Steve Bannon had organized the insurrection against the United States government on January 6, 2021, she would have been armed, and she and Bannon would have prevailed in overturning the electoral count in the House of Representatives (to which she had just been elected).

She stupidly tells the world about her dreams of sedition against the government she had just sworn to uphold and whose Constitution she swore to preserve, protect, and defend.

IOW, she bragged about being a disloyal American and in favor of overturning the government that pays her very generous salary!

Can she be any dumber?

MT Greene:  "Hold my beer."

White House slams Marjorie Taylor Greene: “It goes against our fundamental values as a country for a member of Congress to wish that the carnage of January 6th had been worse, & to boast that she would have succeeded in an armed insurrection against the United States government.”

via Democratic Underground:

"Christian nationalist U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene‘s remarks at the New York Young Republican Club’s Saturday night gala have elicited massive response – and condemnation – from many after she insisted had she been “in charge” of the January 6, 2021 insurrection the rioters “would’ve been armed” and they “would have won.” 

Some are questioning how Greene can retain her congressional seat given the oath of office she swore to, which in part reads: “I, __, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” 

 Former Democratic U.S. Senator from California Barbara Boxer tweeted: “If you’re in Congress and swore to protect the Constitution & you’re asked if you had anything to do with 1/6 insurrection, you say something like: I would NEVER partake in violence against America. You wouldn’t say something like: if I did it I would’ve been armed!”

Republicans have decided that the guy whose organization, the Trump Organization, was found guilty on all 17 counts of corruption;

*the guy who cheated on his first wife with his second wife and who then cheated on his second wife with his third wife and who had sex with a porn star while said third wife was pregnant with his 5th child; 

*the guy whose Big Lie incited an insurrection against his own government;

*the guy who said his own vice president deserved to be hanged;

*the guy who stole top secret government documents and lied about it; 

*the guy who had dinner at his home with a man who said he loved Hitler and with a white supremacist; 

*the guy who called for the "termination" of the Constitution so that he could be "reinstalled" in the office of the presidency, which he overwhelmingly lost in 2020 --

That guy is the person that Republicans have decided would be a great representative of Republican values and a shining example of democracy for the rest of the free world.

Not one GOP Senator nor Representative has called for Donald J. Trump to drop out of the 2024 presidential race.
So we can only assume that Republicans are on board for Trump to be the front-runner for the Republican Party. 

And that, my friends, defines what the GOP stands for:

Lying, cheating, fraud, anarchy, venality, and hatred of our founding document, the US Constitution.

Warnock defeats Walker, giving Democrats 51-49 majority in Senate

Decency, competence, and compassion won in GA tonight.

Thank goodness Warnock won.

The party of Trump ran a very, very poor candidate and they deserve the humiliation of losing AGAIN!

Senators Graham and Cruz merit special recognition for their cringe-worthy pandering for Walker. It did Walker not a bit of good and may have even contributed to his loss.

How long before the Trumpublican Party dumps Walker? We'll wait and see.

A friend who lives outside of Atlanta wrote this:

"Looks like the libertarian vote from November largely went to Warnock today



Also, this good news:

The results of the midterm elections in Arizona have been officially certified, and Democrats will hold the governorship, secretary of state office, and both U.S. Senate seats in the state for the first time in over 70 years.
