Kathy Griffin is right ! And spare us the selective outrage — Trump has done worse, but as a man he gets a pass! by Frank Giorno

I defend Kathy Griffin and her right to express how she feels about the harmful policies of Donald Trump through her use of political theatre. Political theatre is a legitimate form of expression.

17_0603_Kathy Griffin News Conference

Kathy Griffin is exercising her freedom of speech in holding a prop that resembles Trump’s head smeared with ketchup…it is tame compared to Hollywood standards.

Kathy Griffin is well within her first amendment rights of free speech to show her disgust at this vile man masquerading as President of the United States by engaging in political theatre.

As a Canadian and a neighbour of the United States, I respect the office of the President. FDR now there was a President! Dwight D. Eisenhower, what a leader!

I am afraid though, that after Trump there won’t be much of an office left to respect. This man is a wrecking ball.

And speaking of theatre, for Christ sake the American movie industry is repleted with grosser props than the ketchup drenched fake head held up by Griffin…only those indignities we call blockbuster movie hits.

Griffin is only doing what Trump has been doing. He uses sensational words and phrases, while Griffin uses no words and a prop to get her message out.

I guess a fat, ugly, white man with $4 billion can joke at  an NRA convention in 2016 in the midst of a presidential election about using their guns to kill a female presidential candidate – Hillary Clinton,  but a woman cannot joke about Trump, a man –  by holding a grotesque -Halloween, fake, severed head prop.

Candidate Trump can make disparaging remarks about Megyn Kelly’s saying quite proudly that the former FOX News anchor was bleeding from her whatever…and people still elected hi president, well it was on 300 something members of the electoral collage , but thank God! more than 3 million voters voted against the six time bankrupted businessman, alleged serial groper and according to Harry Hurt III a wife beater.

Donald Trump’s Bloody Imagery Hurled at Megyn Kelly

In my books , 3 million Americans is a lot larger number than 300 electors. Some democracy, where a blade of grass in Iowa, has more voting clout than a human being in California.

Despite the “loss-win” Trump continues to act  like King Donald I – absolute monarch of America…didn’t you guys have a revolution in 1776 to overthrow your last absolute monarch — King George the III?

Folks, it is not Donald Trump’s head Griffin is holding…it is a prop. Like the props used in many grotesque Hollywood movies and television shows. Such grotesqueness has not led to producers or directors getting fired. Rather they have gotten quite rich and famous because of their gore. Take Sam Peckinpah please!

So why the outrage?

Something is wrong with America, that can consume hours and hours of murder porn, like Criminal Minds as entertainment, but acts outraged at Griffin’s prank.

“Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia”…the name of a Sam Peckinpah 1970s movie starring Warren Oates and a severed head prop. No outrage there.

Actually, Peckinpah’s ultra violent movies are considered high art. Of course, Griffin is no Peckinpah…she is after all a woman, and though Peckinpah’s disgusting movie and prop are hailed, Griffin and her prop are reviled. I guess Quentin Tarantino, another man, has followed in Peckinpah’s footsteps and carried on the good old ultra violence.

Alfredo Garcia

Sam Peckinpah’s movie about a severed head is hailed as cinematic art…all of Peckinpah’s bloodied films are. Poor Kathy Griffin’s bloodied head prop is reviled as much as Peckinpah’s is hailed. Go figure

Consider how many innocent men, women children  were killed by Trump-approved tomahawk missiles strike in Syria, the stepped up military action near Mosul and the mother of all bomb strike in Afghanistan, where was the American outrage?

Those blown up bloodied heads and bodies were real. Kathy Griffin’s stage prop was a piece of rubber covered with ketchup.

So much outrage over a prop that was not real.

Kathy Griffin, a woman with a bloody prop gets fired. But Donald Trump gets lauded as acting Presidential.

Kathy Griffin, take an extended road trip. You will be a big hit in Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Rome and Berlin, where they see Trump murdering NATO and killing the planet by withdrawing from the Paris Accord.

You go girl! You will get standing ovations.

The bloodied Trump prop-head is political theatre as much as Trump’s Syrian air strike or his outrageous comments during he election campaign,

Why not fire Trump for his really bloodied hands, and his comments about NRA members using their guns on Hillary Clinton? Or Megyn Kelly’s bloodied “whatever?”

And you hypocritical Americans…yez you Al Franken, and you Chelsea Clinton, and you Anderson Cooper — just go back to watching your Criminal Minds and your other murder porn favourites, like Dexter and Hannibal Licter and Freddy Krueger.

Bloodiest TV Shows

Hell, you don’t have to watch fiction just turn on your nightly news outlets and you see real life blood oozing out of an about to die American or other death rattles….where is the outrage over those deaths brought to you live in your living room.

Or you can watch Spike TV or the Discovery Channel’s 1,000 Ways to Die.

1,000 Ways to Die

 

This outrage over Kathy Griffin hoisting a Trump prop head…It’s a selective and calculated outrage over Kathy Griffin. It’s a sorry, cold blooded ploy to deflect from Trump’s selling out America to the Russians.

Like the calculated approval to strike  a Syrian airfield another more deadly smoke screen to divert from Trump’s Russia problems.

Trump kills in Syria and Afghanistan and Fareed Zakharia on CNN’s GPS hails Trump as acting Presidential.

Trumps deadly airstrikes in Syria makes him presidential ?

Trump, the man gets away with murder, and disparaging remarks about women, and gets elected president. A woman, like Kathy Griffin, exercises her right to free speech, and political theatre ,and she gets fired.

 

So it goes as Kurt Vonnegut would say.

I guess it is, as James Brown sings… a man’s world.

 

 

Great U.S. Presidents: Franklin Roosevelt was a Great U.S. President – He Knew How To Run A Country

roosevelt102way_sq-6943e8ab2b83948dfb2f059bd2672e3dc2bd3cbb-s300-c85

FDR showed that great personal sacrifice and unselfishness are important characteristics of that a president of the United States must have to lead the nation.

During this time of great tumult, hatred and division, let’s cheer a truly great American President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

During the 1930’s,  when the United States faced its great struggle with the Depression, it was blessed with a great President -Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Roosevelt  was a very wealthy man, But his far-reaching, generous policy and concern for the well being of America’s middle and working class led to the creation of some of the greatest public works projects ever undertaking to create jobs –  e.g. The Tennessee Valley Authority, a hydro-electric project that created jobs and also extended electrification to remote parts of the US.

FDR had great advisers and he listened to them. He sacrificed the narrow interests of the plutocracy of which the Roosevelt family stood. Theodore Roosevelt, a president in the early years of the 20th century was a cousin, to really benefit and improve the lives of the less financially well off.

For a history of he Roosevelt family please click here

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roosevelt_family

FDR was the first president to use the First 100 days as a measure for how well he was helping the Nation. And he did plenty. His policies to help Americans cope with the Great Depression is known as The New Deal

FDR’s   National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA), Works Public Administration (WPA) and National Relief Administration (NRA), the National Labour Relations Board (NLRB), the Social Security Act,  and a number of other progressive measures  helped millions and millions of Americans survive the Great Depression.

For a history of FDR’s New Deal click here: http://www.history.com/topics/new-deal

FDR embodied the spirit of sacrifice and unity. For those who planned to profit from the people’s misery, FDR had this to say:

“The forces of ‘organized money’ are unanimous in their hate for me—and I welcome their hatred.”

He went on: “I should like to have it said of my first Administration that in it the forces of selfishness and of lust for power met their match, [and] I should like to have it said of my second Administration that in it these forces have met their master.”

In his second term a much more aggressive fight against the people who were profiting from the Depression-era troubles of ordinary.

FDR at the mikes

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a great leader, a great US president who despite personal suffering helped improve the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans

It is not hard to see why FDR won an unprecedented 4 terms as US president. A feat that will never again be accomplished because of term limits imposed by Congress after FDR’s death. Presidents may now only serve 2 terms.

His measures have been attacked by the neanderthal Conservative Democrats and Republicans have been railing against for over 80 years.

You see, to be a great President or champion of the working class you don’t have to be from the working class.

You just have to stand by your personal principles of unselfish caring for your neighbours and taking measures to help them, instead of fooling them to vote for you and then abandoning them only to enrich your own pockets.

In fact some of the greatest enemies of the working class and middle class have themselves come out of the middle and working class..e.g. Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini to name two.

Hitler was a loser who failed at everything he tried.

Mussolini was a bombastic idiot, who instead of following policies steeped in reality to help the Italian nation, he was obsessed with childhood fantasies of rebuilding the Roman Empire.

Let’s Cheer the Great Franklin Roosevelt ! And remember a truly great American President.

A man who showed that disabilities, he was wheel chair bound due to polio, need not be a hindrance to being great.

Also lets recognize that it was under FDR, the first seedlings of the civil rights movement were planted with such historical events as Marion Anderson’s Lincoln Memorial Concert, the first time a black performer sang on the Washington Mall.

That generation produced some great music. Here is Woody Guthrie’s This Land Is Your Land sung by Peter Seeger and Bruce Springsteen in 2010.

Perhaps current political leaders should listen to the hopes and dreams of this inclusively themed song, instead of spewing hatred, bigotry and division.

Doing the Wire Tappin With You:Crazy new dance sensation inspired by Trump’s braggadocios claim he was wire tapped by Obama

deplorabes_sexThe audacity of bold lies by Donald Trump never ends.

He learned from the best, the discredited human, Roy Cohn, who infamously was the counsel to the maniacal Senator Joe McCarthy of the communist witch hunt fame, prior to taking Trump under his wings.

Cohn taught Trump that when you are under attack, you counter attack with all you got, even if all you got is nothing but lies, big lies and damned lies.

Like Old Joe McCarthy boldly stating he had a list of 50 communists employed in the state department…never were. Big Lie…Next time use a number like 47. More believable than 50.

donald7

Donald Trump, admires Adolf Hitler. Notice the Hitlerian influence on Trump. Here is Trump’s open mouth yelling of his hateful messages..Just like Adolph Hitler’s open mouth yelling.

So Trump has been caught with his pants down on the Russian collusion deal to steal the US election. No problem. Accuse Barack Obama of wire tapping your phone. No proof ?

It doesn’t matter there are enough suckers in the USA that at least 37 percent may believe you.

So without further adieu, or is it ado?Let’s have some fun get on the dance floor, and move to this crazy new Trump inspired dance sensation called the Wire Tappin. Enjoy.

Do the Wire Tappin

by Frank “Twinkle Toes” Giorno

I wire tap you
And you wire tap me
Pick up the phone
And I know I am not alone
Steal my dirty secrets
And I steal your slimy plan
And Spin your partner, dip
And hold her/him with your hand.
Wire tappin
Wire tappin
Finger snappin
Thigh slappin
I’m Wire tappin

You get down on your knees
Plant the bug on the rug
Jump and count to three
Double kick

I just give the cord a dug
I am happy as slug
I just inserted a listening device
I think it will suffice
And your looking awfully nice
Wire tappin
Wire tappin
Finger snapping
Thigh slappin
I’m Doing the Wire Tappin
With you and you and you
You pull my wire
I pull your string
You call your lawyer
There’s just one thing
I caught you plotting with the Russians
Illegal Aliens in your kitchen
Just shutup and stop your crazy bitchin
Please stop your whining
And shake your hips
Give that blonde rug a flip
You are such bloody hipocrite
But I can’t stop loving you
What else can I do
When I am wire tappin with you and you and you
Wire tappin
Wire tappin
Finger snapping
Thigh slappin
I love doing the Wire Tappin
With you and you and you!

 

trumps-hair-4

Where did that boyish head of hair come from? America has a right to know!

Let’s face it Donald Trump is lying again. He lies all the time. He can’t stop. He is addicted to lying. He loves. He adores it.

Henry Rollins, the great sage musician of the 1980s and 1990s knows exactly why Donald Trump lies. HR understand the seductive power of the lie.

Listen as Henry Rollins predicts the US’s fascination with lyin’.

Art form that their idiot President has elevated to an art form.

Here is Henry Rollins with his classic song “Liar”.

 

“Great Thoughts by a Not So Great Man”:Every Day Trump Defies the Will of the Majority

Donald 1

Donald being Donald tells the world where it can go: “People try to put me down, but I just tell them all to kiss my billions.

Everyday, when Donald Trump sits down to enact his political agenda he is defying the will of the majority of US voters…Every one of his tainted actions is for the privilege of a minority of US citizens… The vote will always read 53 million against Trump vs. 50 Million for Trump.

But isn’t democracy government by the people, for the people?
In the case of Trump what you have is government for a minority against the will of the people.
Therefore in plain English, Trump is a dictator, dictating unpopular laws, and executive orders against the will of the people.
People of America, wake up. You, the majority voted against Trump. His actions defy
the will of the majority.
Therefore, as Michael Moore so correctly says, it is up to the majority of US citizens to reclaim their right to be governed according to their wishes. Their wishes run counter to what Trump is ordering the country to do.

michael-moore

Michael Moore is right. Resistance to Trump is an American Duty, because everyday Trump is defying the will of the majority of Americans who voted against him.

All government officials, in all three branches of government. All the majority of Americans have a duty to obstruct, defy and resist Donald Trump unless and until he implements the will of the people.
That means he has to stop implementing his minority policies immediately, including his Muslim ban and his Mexican Wall and his Anti-Free Trade tirades.
Or resign.
That would be the remedy in a British Parliamentary democracy. When the leader loses the support of the will of the majority of the people..he resigns.

Donald Trump, admires Adolf Hitler. Notice the Hitlerian influence on Trump. Here is Trump’s open mouth yelling of his hateful messages..Just like Adolph Hitler’s open mouth yelling.

Humour: Contribute to Amnesty International so they can keep a watch on Donald Trump – America’s Hitler by Frank Giorno : A Northern Blog – “The world seen through northern eyes”

Warning: The following has humour and truth that might offend people who support Donald Trump. Read at your own risk.
Donald 1

Donald being Donald tells the world where it can go: “People try to put me down, but I just tell them all to kiss my billions.

In 1932, Many people in Germany laughed when their very own Charlie Chaplin-ed mustachioed clown Adolf Hitler won the Chancellorship of Germany by the tiniest of minorities. After all this was the clownish buffoon who in 1924 thought he would start a fascist revolution by overthrowing a Munich beer hall.
 
Difference is that in a four horse field, Donald Trump actually lost the election by two million votes, yet because of the ‘Lecter College and the killing of democracy, the cretin Trump becomes the illegitimate president of the most heavily armed nation on the planet and perhaps the entire Solar System.
 
And I know my dear right wing friends will respond in anger or write some smart aleck response to my post. But we can’t hide facts about Donald Trumpler any longer.

Donald Trump, admires Adolf Hitler. Notice the Hitlerian influence on Trump. Here is Trump’s open mouth yelling of his hateful messages..compare to the open mouth yell of Adolph Hitler

Trump is an admirer of Adolf Hitler as this passage from Harry Hurt III the author of Lost Tycoon Trump’s (p.341) unauthorized biography clearly indicates. Trump is not academically inclined, this was a how to book, folks…How to bamboozle big crowds.

 
What we can do is help human rights organizations like Amnesty International keep on eye on Herr Trumpler and intervene when called on. Call Amnesty International and donate now with a statement indicating you are concerned about Trump’s threat to imprison Hillary Clinton.
Click here to contribute to Amnesty International:
 
You supporters of Donald Trump who still are basically good people although thoroughly bamboozled by his lies can also contribute to Amnesty International too.
Your contributions will help Amnesty keep an eye On American’s new Third Reich.
 
Yes, that’s right folks lets not mince meat here any longer.
In 1990, according to author Harry Hurt III, the Donald was given or purchased the entire set of Hitler’s Speeches.collected in an edition titled “The New Order”..and I don’t think Herr Trump only had a passing academic interest. This collection of Hitler speeches was a how to book, folks…How to bamboozle big crowds. Notice as in Hitler’s Triumph of the Will, it was all about large crowds, theatrics, blusters and big lies.
open-mouthed-hitler

Compare Hitler’s open mouth yelling to Trump’s yelling in the previous photo. The admiration is obvious. Also notice Hitler’s odd hand gestures, something he shares with Trump’s odd hand movements. Although it looks like Hitler’s hands are huge compared to Trump’s tiny hands.

What we can do is help human rights organizations like Amnesty International keep on eye on Herr Trumpler and intervene when called on.

Call Amnesty International and donate now with a statement indicating you are concerned about Trump’s threat to imprison Hillary Clinton.

 

trump-reads-hitler_trump-acts-like-hitler

Donald Trump boned up on Hitler’s speeches as early as 1990 notes author Harry Hurt III Lost Tycoon, 1993 (p.341)

Author Hurt notes more than a passing similarity between Adolfo’s big lies and Donaldo’s big lies. Donald’ big lies were the hall mark of his career in the New York City and Global development industry; and more recently with his entry into politics with his discredited birth movement..

Hitler and Trump they both lied and the poor sad sack uneducated marks, suckers who voted for both Hitler and Trump (obviously some highly educated volk too) had to live with tragic consequences.)

They also threatened to arrest political opponents. Hitler did, Trumpler so far has only threatened to do so.

Soon Amnesty International may have to campaign to free from prison Hillary Clinton , the numerous women who accused Donald Trump of sexual assaults, and the Trump admirers who were foolish enough to enroll as students in the scam Trump University. They now are suing their former guru for fraud.

Trump who has a penchant for revenge against his perceived enemies may also try arrest journalists, financiers, fellow billionaires who mocked him and anyone who makes fun of his small hands in relations to the size of his organ-i-zation…yeah that’s it the size of his tiny electoral organ-i-zation. LOL

Trump’s loss-victory is a pyrrhic victory by Frank Giorno: A Northern Blog – The world seen through northern eyes

donald7

Donald Trump, America’s political cannibal will have plenty of sharpened knives coming after him over the next four years. His loss-victory is a pyrrhic victory. It comes with too great a cost for Trump. He has angered and enraged too making Americans. His four years will be a constant series of scandals and defeats.

Donald Trump has won a pyrrhic victory.

So he won the presidency of the United States.

Big deal…he actually lost.

A pyrrhic is a victory or goal achieved at too great a cost. Remember this term when thinking about Donald Trump’s so called victory.

In another country, but the undemocratic United States, Donald Trump would have lost hands down.

So Trump’s loss-victory has come at too great a cost for him. His lack of release of information on his income tax returns will haunt him. Don’t think for a minute the media will let up on this.

What dirty secret is Trump hiding? Why won’t he just release his tax info if he has nothing to hide?

And though Wikileaker Julian Assange, with two outstanding sexual assault charges against him, has cozied up to Trump, while holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London; that is not to say other cyber leakers won’t gladly hack away until they release the juiciest tidbit secret info out there for hackers to chomp on.

Trumps unusually close relationship with Russian Billionaire Dictator Vladimir “No Disputin'” Putin will hound him and come back to bite Trump in the ass.

Already Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina is calling for a senate investigation into the meddling of Russia in the US election.

Graham-080106-18270- 0035

Senior Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has called for a Senate investigation into Russia’s incursion into the recent American election. Official Senate Photo

Trump’s lies to the American working class will strangle him…he promised extremely rich people at a recent dinner at Club 21 in New York they will get major tax cuts.

Folks you cannot give your pals in the Establishment on Wall Street and still implement a $1 Trillion infrastructure program promised by Trump without bankrupting the US….come to think of it…Trump will do very well bankrupting the US treasury, he has had six already…what is a seventh, eh.

Trump already starts out in a hole. He has has 2 million less supporters the winner-loser Hillary Clinton. That is like starting in a trench to begin his administration. He is going to have to work like the dickens just to get to ground level with Americans.

Also Trump has hitched his horse to the worst aspects of American society elements that have been thoroughly trounced and rejected in the US since at least the Mid-1950s…I am talking about racists in the KKK, his chief advisor Steven Bannon the guru of the alt.right conspiracy; anti-semitic rants at home though conflictingly pro-Israel won’t fool the US Jewish Anti-Defamation League.

His anti-women stance astonishingly garnered him the support of 53 percent of fearful white women. He actually did better with women than straight-laced Mits Romney.

But when things settle down and all the hate talk dissipates some of these white women will recall his grab them by the pussy remark wonder why they voted for that pig.

kkk

Trump’s admiration for Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke won’t win him many converts to make up for the 2 million vote deficit he will be starting with on the dawn of his presidency.

His anti-immigration, anti- Mexican, anti- Muslim stance cost him votes in this election and will lose him more in the future.

Now that Trump is the president he will become the focus of major leaks about his taxes, his lawsuits, his conflict of interests, the depth of his own personal foreign indebtedness.

The first major challenge for Trump will be the fraud lawsuits pertaining to Trump University later this month.

With so many problems in his personal finances why would this megalomaniac Trump want to be president.

The knives are already poised to rip Trump apart and the pyrrhic victory is all he can claim.

He has antagonized too many people including senior Republican Party Officials who will not bow down to this cretin despite his loss-victory in the election.

Many of his challengers that he so brutally eviscerated during the Republican Primaries will be among the first to take the first stabs at Donald.

… except for Senator Ted Cruz, whose sucking up to Trump after Trump thoroughly humiliated him, his wife and his family is a classic case of political masochism.

President Trump is ripe for the picking.

As the Rolling Stones sang Let it Bleed.

Joke: Why do the Americans call it the Lecter College? by Frank Giorno : A Northern Blog – the world seen through northern eyes

lecter-college

Ok here is a joke.

We all need a good laugh.

Shortly after the 2016 US presidential election a young girl asked her parents a question.

lecter

Why do they call it the Lecter College? Because the Electoral Collage kills democracy in America, the way Hannibal Lecter killed people.

“Dad? Mom? Why in the U.S. presidential elections do they call it the Lecter College?”

“Well that’s easy dear,” the parents replied.

“It’s called the Lecter College because the Electoral College kills democracy in America, the way Hannibal Lecter, the serial killing cannibal killed people.

Donald Trump, American’s serial, political cannibal, shows the mouth and jaws he used to devour his opponents.
