“Jadoube”…Trump’s Faux Pas

The Octogenarians

Excuse my French it is non existent and thus beyond bad,,but the expression comes from the game of chess originating in tournament chess and suspending the punishment for touching a chess piece and not moving it. It is an expression of civility that does not apply to Joe Biden’s embrace of segregationists Eastland and Thurmond..
I do not believe that Trump rescinded the air strike order on Iran out of compassion;.We have evidence that he lacks that capacity.We also should not believe that collateral damage estimates were omitted by his intelligence officers until he asked for them..I believe that Vladimir Putin was in touch with Trump requesting if not ordering) that the strike  be called off.It may be that this spared entry into another interminable war or the use of nuclear weapons(the only means of obtaining a shorter war)..When MOM isn’t busy undoing the work of the Obama and prior…

Escalator Descent Redux : Mom Pushes Level Hell Button !

The Octogenarians

Our con man Joker of a President went to his strong suit last week and produced with the help of ABC and George Stephanopoulis an Apprentice supplement of ‘Follow Me Around for 30 hours.’Only the devil and Paul Muni who played a Hellbound mobster with a temporary redemption in the late 30s or early 40s might know what he intended.What resulted was a lying jerk who talked like a mobster and who admitted a willingness to use tarnishing information obtained from a foreign country for political purposes,and who denied that this was a crime and that the FBI had to be informed immediately of the effort without any use of the information.Walked back the next day,only to the satisfaction of Fox News,the straight from the heart talk will live in infamy.
The nonsense with Iran,China,Russia and the world is accelerating.North Korea is threatening rebuilding of missile sites,openly testing medium range…

The Malice from the Piper is being heard.

AArgh!!!

The Octogenarians

I sat down to watch Laura Ingraham interview MOM aka POTUS in front of a D Day memorial in Normandy.I listened in amazement at the vituperation spat out by the PRESIDENT GENIUS attacking Mueller and Pelosi and dismissing the Vietnam war as not important and justifying his draft dodging,,claiming to have made up for it by getting some 17billion dollars additionally from the U.S.. budget for the military.An alert from a local channel interrupted my observation of MOM and the fawning Ingraham with a shots fired emergency broadcast from San Gabriel some 35.9 miles away and reasonably familiar.This suspect apparently set 3 homes afire carried a long gun and a hand gun and was shot to death by a confronting deputy after SWAT responded’.Be of good cheer gun lovers,a knife wielding suspect was shot to death in Atwater village today a mere 26.6 miles away.some time later.Could Weber have been…

The Pied Piper Leads On.

The Octogenarians

The Trump message of ‘Look What they’ve got because they took it from you” identity politics notwithstanding,is being heard theacross the country by injustice collectors irrespective of race,gender,or ethnicity..A forgettable black man,a former national guardsman killed 12 people in Virginia Beach last week using 2 Colt 45s with extended magazines and a silencer.He might have been “the good guy with a gun” in fairy book circumstances, but in this instance was the monster.A few days ago in peaceful Rancho Palos Verdes there was a shooting in Del Amo Mall about eight miles away from me.The shooter is still at large.There were no deaths but police activity on land and in the air is pronounced.

The number and variety of guns in the U.S.A is huge Alexa.tells me 360,000,000 hand guns alone.Carry permits are extremely difficult to obtain in California making the “good guy with a gun” scenario difficult thank all…

MISINTERPRETATION OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT STRIKES AGAIN.

The Octogenarians

VIRGINIA BEACH IS THE LATEST SITE OF MASS MURDER WITH USE OF A MILITARY FIREARM OBTAINED LEGALLY AND PROBABLY REGISTERED BUT USING MEGAMAGAZINES AND A SILENCER.12 DEAD ,II WOUNDED AND MORE MAY DIE.THE NRA IS A SHAMEFUL SHAMBLES BUT GUN RIGHTS LOBBYISTS ARE STILL EFFECTIVELY KEEPING THE FACILITATION OF MASS SLAUGHTER GOING.aS CORRUPT LEADERSHIP LEADS US FURTHER INTO THt WILDERNESS THINGS WILL GET WORSE .THIS TIME AROUND ,THE DISTRACTION OF A FOREIGN WAR WILL NOT STOP THE ASCENT OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.

12 ARE DEAD AND THERE IS ONLY A ROTE EXPRESSION OF REGRET FROM OUR CORRUPT EXECUTIVE.POSSIBLY THAT BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT IS PREOCCUPIED WITH ANTICIPATING WHAT NEW ARTIFACT,PIECE OF REALITY OR INDICATOR OF A NEED FOR REAL LEADERSHIP NEEDS TO BE HIDDEN FROM OUR SELF ADMITTED GENIUS OF A PRESIDENT.

Astute observation.

The Octogenarians

From Pitcher in the wry.Questionable Motives?
Senate Democrats who are excited at the possibility that their Republican colleagues who are supboenaing Donald Trump Jr to appear before the Intelligence Committee are growing a backbone may be,in the end rudely disappointed.This may turn out to be an opportunity for Donald Jr to,by recanting,to the committee his previous testimony relative to the the Trump Tower Moscow project save himself from perjury charges.should the Republicans lose control of the Senate in the,2020 election..

The Crisis Worsens

The Octogenarians

MOM aka Potus has ordered his subordinates not to respond to congress,or the media in short he has transformed “We the People ” into “He the People” or “Him”some may prefer “The Thing”.
His flunkey Barr insulted the Congress and the American people by his insulting press conference and his craven refusal to truthfully disclose the nature of the Mueller protest and ultimately his refusal to appear before the House Judicial committee when he discovered that some of the questioning would come from lawyers utilized by congress.MO M has his ROY COHN. MOM has also been pressing the Federal Reserve Board to lower interest rates solely so that the end of the bull cycle can be protracted until after the 2020 election.
As long as Americans pay more attention to motor cars that they can no longer afford, and are satisfied with lack of health care protection.or settle for cheap…

Sleight of hand & muddled thinking&the constitutional crisis.

The Octogenarians

There are those who are still waiting for MOM(aka POTUS) to deliver on promises made.They will be waiting a long time.North Korea has become more threatening and has increased its emphasis on mid range missles .Kim Jong Un is now refusing to deal with the U.S. secretary pf state while affirming his love of Trump.Russia is now in the coveted position that Trump and Pompeo sought in the far east muddle.

MOM in the meantime is refusing to cooperate with the House of Representatives and is ordering his subordinates to defy house summonses,requests,subpoenas etc We are thus in a constitutional crisis deliberately brought on by MOM,who is clearly buying time until the 2020 election and counting on his appointees to the Supreme court to cover him.If the appointees have any concern for their place in history, he may be barking up the wrong tree.

MOM is continuing the use of…

Katie bar the door! (15th century england) Sarah”barr” the door (21ST CENTURY u.s.a)

The Octogenarians

Sarah Douglas was a lady in waiting in the court of Queen Anne in the mid fourteen hundreds and apocryphally is credited with sacrificing her right arm blocking hostile access to James the First of Scotland.Thus saving his life.Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the press secretary for MOM also known as POTUS.and this Barr is the attorney general of he U.S.The disgraceful press conference today, of this lackey was followed by the release of the redacted Mueller report which was thoroughly condemnatory of the Trump administration.A quote from Mueller of the response of our President “this is the end of my Presidency…I’m F…..D” says it all. The man who loved Wickey Leaks in 2016 only to be totally unaware of it now is telling the naive that he has a wonderful health care plan for America but it wont be available until after the 2020 election.Liar, Liar pants on fire! Sarah…

Going Hollywood.

The Octogenarians

I have been accused of “going Hollywood” in some of my pronouncements,however the theatrics of the Republican party in defense of MOM and his appointees. is worthy of  bad actor awards.There have been declarations of all that MOM has accomplished in such a short time..The diminution of the world status that the U.S.A.once had is all that I can see.

I have watched Fox News and the discouragement of all but the most rabid POTUS supporters(e.g.Bartiromo),other channels like NBC,CBS,Channels 7,5,9,,MSNBC,CNN read excerpts from LA Times ,N.Y. Times,Washington Post Wall Street Journal,Daily News,USA,N.Y.Post etc..Only the N.Y. Post and Fox news seem relatively immune to crticizing both the domestic and foreign policies or lack thereof, of the Trump administration..The comment of a former federal prosecutor on MSNBC was particularly impressive.I believe his name was Cilo..His charateization of the Mueller report was one of stopping short of convicting the “Gang Who Couldn’t Shoot…
