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.

They’re coming to take the President away…haha…heehee…to the funny farm

Donald J. Trump is a paranoid, who hallucinates nonsense and then tweets his delusions to the world.

The birther nonsense in which he falsely accused former President Obama of being born in Kenya, when in fact the records clearly show Obama was born in Hawaii, which last time I checked was a state in the United States of America.

Donald 1

A clearly unhinged President Donald J. Trump tells the world via a post midnight sleep deprived tweet that Obama bugged his phones. He is mad I tell you…completely kookoo.  

More recently, Trump claimed that 3 million illegal aliens voted against him and that is why he didn’t win the popular vote.

He clearly was angered that his claims to the greatest electoral victory in US history actually ranked 46 out of 54 elections.

He deluded himself into thinking that the crowd at his inaugural was “yuge”, the largest ever and lashed out at the media when they showed that Obama’s first inaugural was actually “yuger” as was the Women’s protest the following Saturday.

Now he has gone completely beyond the pale into absolutely, weird territory and perpetrated the greatest outrage by a sitting President against his predecessor.

Trump announced earlier this week in one of his frequent sleep deprived, midnight tweets that President Obama wiretapped his phones at the Trump Tower.

Trump had absolutely no evidence but the rantings of Breitbart and other wingnuts of the alt.right movement. More importantly the Hallucinator in Chief clearly had no idea how difficult it is to obtain a court ordered wire tap. I guess he shoulda attended his intelligence briefings prior to being sworn in.

Wrecking Ball Trump

I came in like a wrecking ball All I wanted was to build more walls

This latest hallucination clearly shows that man is a danger to himself and the nation. So why not fill out a community committal order at the local D.C. Mental Health Hospital.

“Mr. President, I regret to inform you that they are coming to take you away – those nice young men in their nice white coats. With the butterfly nets. They are at the door sir.”

“They are coming to take you away sir. They have the white straight jackets ready.”

“Should I inform Melania and the kids?”

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.

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