Things I won’t miss when Trump is gone.

I don’t know when Donald J. Trump will leave office, but sooner or later he will. And if he leaves sooner there is a pretty good chance he’ll be back later. But Father Time is still the undefeated champion, and we must all eventually shuffle off this mortal coil. I predict it will be many years before PDJT ascends that heavenly escalator to his penthouse in the sky.

But a day will come when Donald Trump is no longer President, and when that day comes there are some things I will not miss:

Unfunny and unattractive female comics vomiting out towards Trump all the bile and hate for men they have accumulated since puberty and calling it humor. I won’t miss any of those feckless c*nts.

Tweet Freakouts:

Donald Trump is a notorious Twitter troll with the rank of Jedi Master. People have been freaking out about his tweets since 2015. Social media technology is supposed to be for Democrats. Young, smart, hip Democrat candidates were supposed to wow the youth vote with their hipness by using Twitter and riding skateboards and stuff. Trump ruined all that.

Every day at Zero Dark Thirty hours Trump would get up and start tweeting like a madman. He tweeted mean things to people (who generally deserved it) while sending classified information to Vlad Putin-on-the-Ritz and racist dogwhistles to his secret white supremacist armies.

What will future generations think when they see “covfefe” right there on their smartphone implant screen?

Reporters who were used to going to bed at 2 am started getting up at 3 am so they could follow Trump’s tweets live. For the first two years of Trump’s first term, there was a freak-out at least once a day. Yeah, I said, “at least.” Some days there was more than one.

I won’t miss them.

Leaks, Lies, and Insider Books:

White House leaks are nothing new. Nixon’s “plumbers” were originally used to “fix leaks.” But under Trump the White House leaked like a new puppy. Leaks are true information that was supposed to be secret. What’s worse, leaking classified information or making up lies about the President?

Trick question – the leaks and lies are mixed together before distribution. Once upon a time, you had to put together a solid story to get it published. Anonymous sources and uncorroborated claims were not enough. News editors were grizzled old farts with no fucks to give who had seen lots of “big scoops” turn out to be piles of crap.

I’m not worried about lies from the outside, I’m worried about lies from the inside. Lies from the FBI, DOJ, State Dept., the IC, the CDC, Congress, etc. But the situation is already improving. In the past few weeks we have seen the news media start fact-checking stories before publishing them. And they are screening out the tabloid trash from newsworthy stories.

I am sick of insider tell-all books. There have already been 40-50 books by alleged insiders “spilling the beans” about Trump. But the bears were all spilled long ago.

I won’t miss “mostly peaceful” riots. As soon as Trump lifts-off from the White House aboard Marine 2, all protests will be deemed violent. Just like the Tea Party riots.

Here are some other things I won’t miss when Donald Trump is gone:

Media lies
Antifas/BLM violence
The Resistance – all forms of obstruction from inside or outside the administration
NeverTrumpers
Censoring the President
Being called a racist
Lockdowns
Hypocrisy
Corruption
Lust for power
Rigged elections

I won’t miss any of those things because they aren’t going anywhere.

    Ah, for a minute I thought you were delusional, but then you got real. Yes the beatings will continue and probably get worse.

  2. Somebody says:

    🤣🤣🤣 You had me, I was like that shit isn’t going to magically disappear. OK, some things will like the comics and the press will once again swoon, but the rest, nah.

    What I will miss most is knowing the President of the United States is someone that loves and cherishes our country and the citizens therein. A President that puts what is best for our country ahead of everything else, a President that truly puts America first. It’s really sad when you look back at former Presidents and realize we the people didn’t come first, not sure we rated at all with some of them

    I’m really glad for your last sentence. Yeah all those things are habits of the Left and they enjoy those habits. As long as the Left is around we are going to have mostly peaceful riots and all their other crap to deal with.

      The coordinated media psy-ops were supposed to make Trump concede. That didn’t work out for them. I wonder what their plan B is?

  7. DandyTIger says:

    Biden today said he would institute a nationwide $15/hr minimum wage. Why not $50/hr or $100/hr. Or even $1000/hr. Why does he hate children so much. Children need more than that. Think of the children.

    • Constance says:

      Of course he did. Seattle has had that for a couple of years. But not the whole state. Small towns don’t need policy designed to fit large cities. I wondered when he was going to crawl out from under his rock.

      • 1539days says:

        This is payback to places that are Republican-leaning. They have lower costs of living and therefore wages don’t have to be as high. With this, the big, leftist cities with $15/hr minimum wage can compete with smaller cities where they will take a huge hit, will have to lay off staff and possibly go out of business.

        • BGCT2VA says:

          I think that the $15 per hour jobs will go to either automation or more skilled / educated employees that may not need a much “remedial” training. As for the “oppressed” service employees – wait staff and such, they can kiss their 15% -25% tips goodbye. Why tip somebody making a “living wage” just for doing their job? They’re not going to like it, but, hey, that’s what they demonstrated and voted for, right?
          Another scenario is that the already flourishing “underground economy” will expand exponentially. Think of all the independent cleaning “companies”. Many of these folks make $10 – $15 per hour -all off the books. They have fairly new cars, and within a reasonable time period, their own homes. All bought with cash. The Dems think everything will be played by their rules. It’s going to get interesting.

        • Mothy67 says:

          Pre plague there were signs in windows everywhere. Several of the retired women in my neighborhood went back to work at the local grocer’s. The store had held a policy that p/t was 3 @7.5 hours. You could not work less. They had a yuuuge problem staffing during the day. They started splitting shifts and upped the hourly to around 12. The market made them adjust. Retirees got splurge money.
          What strikes me as unfair is that a mandatory min. wage hurts the employee who put in the time and the service. There are plenty of well paying certificate type jobs (pharm tech, phlebotomist, CNA) that do tough jobs. Are companies going to proportionally give them a raise. I think CNAs have the toughest job. UPMC did its virtue signaling by announcing all new hires would start at 15. Not one story praising them for benevolence mentioned that things like the cafeteria and gift shop are all subcontracted out.
          Will give oblahblahblah credit he stopped the practice of allowing companies to abuse salaried employees. Assistant managers could be forced to work 60+ hours a week. His labor department stopped that.
          I worked as a tax preparer one season. One of the H&R block knockoffs that people walk in off the street and leave with a debit card that day worth sometimes over 5,000. They knew exactly when to quit working to get the max from the earned income credit. A 5g check is more than 4 months full time work. Most of those people also get food stamps, help with utilities, health insurance, subsidized housing, 9.99 internet, a free phone and other bennies that would evaporate with a doubling of the min wage. A 23 year old unskilled worker might reap benefits, but it could cause damage to a single mother of three who actually needs the help.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That and the Bidenettes want their student loans forgiven. Obviously nothing’s been taught in schools these past 4 years. Why is there still student debt?

      • John Denney says:

        • Mothy67 says:

          I wonder how many of the genuises who are still working during the plannedemic were smart enough to continue making payments while there is a moratorium on student loans. My brother only has a few years left on his. I said double up on payments while this lasts because you are reducing the principal. He’s going to save thousands down the road. And he is not tightening his belt to pay the extra as there is no where to spend money right now.
          Also how can the gov’t forgive non susidized student loans? According to forbes these are the max
          Total subsidized and unsubsidized loan limits over the course of your entire education include:

          Dependent: $31,000 ($23,000 subsidized, $7,000 unsubsidized)
          Independent: $57,500 ($23,000 subsidized, $34,500 unsubsidized)
          How do you forgive 50,000 if all you can borrow is 31??????? Taxpayer should pay for your room & board for 4 years when you probably did spring break while a plumber’s apprentice busted his ass while you were at frat parties?

        • 1539days says:

          I never had 50k in student loans, maybe 30 all in. I have like $2,000 left. I wouldn’t even take the cancellation because it would make me look like a deadbeat.

          I was at a point where my loans were near default over a decade ago. Now, I have a credit rating above 800. Pay your bills.

        All mass shootings had 1 thing in common: the victims were defenseless.

        The 2nd Amendment means never having to be defenseless, but it’s been so infringed and hoplophobia so engendered in the populace that most people are utterly defenseless in public.

        I can’t help but wonder how many of the San Bernardino Christmas party victims had arms safely locked up at home in accordance with California law.

  9. John Denney says:

    That’s a righteous rant, there, Klown.

    BTW, were any of the false witnesses at the Clarence Thomas & Brett Kavenaugh hearings ever charged with perjury, lying to Congress, or whatever?

  10. Constance says:

    From Parler feed.
    BREAKING: Sidney Powell “I would warn any state right now that thinks they’re going to certify this election to re-think it VERY SERIOUSLY, because what they’re certifying is their own fraud, and their own complicity in fraud. I might even mount a class action suit later to sue them themselves for their own participation in it. It’s ridiculous. The legislatures in the states need to take control right now & reject the certifications, of especially the swing states, that were so heavily influenced by these 100’s of thousands of vote changes.”

    This morning I spoke with the medical social worker who is assigned to the C19 unit at our hospital. She said the unit is full and they are moving ppl into a medical unit and moving those pts out. More than 100+ pts at this particular hospital she also said the numbers have been increasing by 10/day during the last week. So I asked her several questions and this is what I learned. Most patients are elderly and are coming from nearby ltc and assisted living facilities. They are mostly hospitalized for 5-day treatment using Remdesivir and are discharged back to home or wherever they came from. They do not discharge patients who come from private residences into nursing homes. Most have recovered quickly; some take a bit longer. She did not mention any deaths. She said some, but not many, are on oxygen. She said a few are in ICU and are mostly there for respiratory treatment. She acknowledged working very very hard. Probably harder in the past week, than last spring. But she also said people are recovering from C19 in much greater numbers than last winter/spring.
    I am heartened by this news. Even though it is only one hospital, it is a major healthcare facility in this metropolitan area.

    • Constance says:

      Thanks for the real info! WA is in lock down again but they didn’t seem to go at it quite so hard this time. I think you can still get your hair cut. Restaurants can open outside which is possible all year round except about 3 weeks a year. Not sure if they closed the casinos but they are on First Nations land not USA land. We were having over 2000 new cases a day which to me seems like it is pretty much out of control so that should hurry the problem through.

    Election officials in Floyd County, Georgia say they discovered some 2,600 ballots that were untallied in what they are calling an “amazing blunder.”

    Gabriel Sterling the state’s voting system manager, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the problem occured because county election officials did not upload votes from a memory card in a ballot scanning machine.

    The newspaper reports that President Trump could pick up at least 800 more votes in the heavily-Republican district.

      Beyond belief. Bill Gates thinks its ok to turn people into zombies. With a VACCINE!!

    • Gram Krakka says:

      This is probably a faux video
      But the presenter in this footage is not Gates. Furthermore, this is not a genuine presentation to the CIA in 2005. This is a hoax video that was likely created for an uncompleted film project from director Ryan Harper called “FunVax.”

      This video has been circulating since 2011 under the assumption that it showed an authentic CIA briefing. Since then, a number of outlets examined and debunked this claim. Metabunk, for instance, noted that the brain scans displayed around the 45-second mark of the video are presented as if they show a “religious brain” and a “non-religious brain” from “two different individuals.” These scans, however, were actually taken from a 2010 study about a 43-year-old woman with a history of methamphetamine abuse. The filmmaker simply took the original scan, added some red and yellow coloring, and then claimed it showed the brain scan of a religious person.

    I wanted to call back to something I posted a couple of weeks ago about COVID. While the number of cases is higher per day (for now), the fatality rate is much lower. About 3-4 months ago, the death rate among (diagnosed) cases was 3-4%. Now, it’s less than 1.5%. If you factor in the un-diagnosed cases based on antibody tests, it falls to something like 0.3%, which is “the flu.”

    • Constance says:

      I agree.

    • Somebody says:

      Something that has been talked about a little bit, even by St. Fauci and the NYT regarding the testing, has to do with the number of spins. It was brilliant to outsource testing to private companies because the CDC was dragging ass and honestly lacked the capacity to do the massive testing called for. The bid put out by CDC demands a minimum 33 cycles, however it sets no upper cycle limit.

      Harvard and other experts say 25-30 cycles is all that is needed. Fauci says any positive at 35 or above is worthless and finding dead fragments not capable of replication or contagion. There was already a study published in The NYT where experts retested at lower spin cycles in NY, MA, and NV. With a reasonable number of cycles 70% of NY’s positives went away, 80 to 90% of MA, no idea about NV the Times piece never stated.

      What is happening is these companies keep spinning at higher and higher numbers of cycles. Some are spinning well into the 40’s, some as high as 47 cycles. When they do that the positives are false. This is a known issue and why the government hasn’t set an upper limit so we get honest factual cases and honest factual infection rates is beyond me.

      My governor Ron DeSantis fired a lab here in Florida because they held back cases and dumped tens of thousands of positives on one day, some of which were 4 and 5 months old. He was livid and rightfully so. I wonder if he has the power to demand a maximum number of cycles? If he and other reasonable governors can and did that would expose this testing as the farce it is.

      Speaking of a farce, my county moved to light red. Hide your kids, hide your wife! Our positivity rate jumped to 8.6%……OMG, we’re above 5% should we hide? Should we mandate masks again? OMG, it’s the end of the world🙄 In reality we had 5 new cases in a county of almost 100,000. Seriously 5 cases and we’re in caution territory🙄

      • Mothy67 says:

        The economy here is largely health and education. We were not hit especially hard during the great recession because those industries persist. My little area is middle middle class. Loads of nurses married to district managers. No one has overreacted to the plague. The media reports thier hyperbole, but everyone is tangently connected to people actually working in the health field so except for the children of a few Karens and Chads the kids social lives proceed. I highly doubt working nurses would let their daughters do big sleepovers if they had even a whiff of fear. Pup’s boyfriend has to quarentine for ten days (not 14) because a junior high student not sick tested positive. He is in 10th grade, but they share a locker room. He was here for 9 hours on Wednesday. If we got exposed we got exposed. I don’t believe masks do a damned thing and we sure as hell don’t wear them around the house. I put one on out of respect for store employees not because Fuher wolf commands. I believe more and more each day that outside of the major cities it needs to run its course. The keebler elf is no match for Mother Nature. Besides well above 80% of local fatalities are in ltc’s. We are almost 9 months into this and my state doesn’t seem to have a grip on it.
        Ugh the boy gets his driver’s license when he gets out of quarentine. Not ready for dates!

        I’m still confused why the ER I was admitted to didn’t give me a Covid test right away. Staff said it was because I had no symptoms, I eventually got one and tested negative, but only after visiting many labs and radiology units for tests? How did they know I wasn’t a Typhoid Mary?

        • Somebody says:

          That is odd. In my mother’s case, I shit you not rescue did a rapid test before she was allowed to be transported. Once at the ER, she was again given a rapid test. Only after that negative was she tested and seen by doctors. Apparently they do have a separate service area for covid positive people needing medical services🙄

          Someone, the surgeon or the hospital demanded my mother have a deep swab, lab test. Only after that test showed negative was she given a room and allowed to have surgery.

          I have no idea how my brother was handled, but considering how rapidly he was taken to surgery I would assume they only had time for a rapid test.

          My BIL was segregated at Mayo ER while they awaited deep nasal lab confirmation that he was negative. Only after that did they proceed with tests that rapidly determined he had a UTI. His doctor refused to see him due to fever, he was referred to ER. My sister had to drop him off it was 6:30-7am He got home in time for bed🙄

          • Somebody says:

            BTW, the hospitals here have separate areas any covid positive patient is sent. They may be there for covid or for a number of other reasons.

            I told my family, if for any reason they say I’m covid positive and try to send me to that are of the hospital following surgery that my family better get my ass out of there. I swear to God I’ll tie sheets together and take my chances scaling the hospital walls. I’m sure I’d get better care at home. Can you imagine what it’s like to be a patient in on the cootie corridor?

          Because the realty is there are no data that supports someone who is symptom-free can transmit the corona virus. There are other things going on with people that should, and do, take priority. When someone presents with symptoms of a possible stroke, the degree of recovery is often related to how quickly she is diagnosed and treated. Time is the enemy. I’m going to hazzard a guess that the staff was masked and wearing an appropriate level of PPE in the various places they took you for tests.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I still had no symptoms when the test was eventually required, guess that’s why my confusion.

            Well, there’s money to be made in them there tests, woman! And medicare pays the hospital a bonus if you get a positive test result. There’s no way a hospital will pass a chance like up.

        • 1539days says:

          Presumably, a hospital shouldn’t need to test obsessively if they are following universal precautions. The cashier at McDonalds wears a mask and gloves, so if the medical staff and patients (within reason) are doing the same, there’s little chance of spread.

He’ll either win when they really count the votes and I’m talking legal votes of course and I think it’ll be with a 75% win 75-73 to 75% or he’ll when when Civil War breaks out and we kicked their asses the hard way. America has no choice people what’s coming is not just another opinion what’s coming is complete and total lockdown and destruction of our economy our religion our way of life our freedom. It’s time we were quiet way too quiet for the lies of the Obama regime we can no longer fight nice we can no longer wait for our time it is the time this is not a republican / Democrat issue this is an issue of right and wrong and the wrong is so wrong that we must all stand up speak out act up and fight actively that includes calling all elected officials out on everything no more going along to get along. Just my opinion but in addition to reading here I read everything and what’s happening globally should scare every human being on the planet you know first amendment is gone in England but then again they never had the Bill of Rights. Should have known England was going to fall and they allowed the Hollywood slut to marry into the Royal Family but seriously people time to really look at what’s going on and figure out how to deal with it head-on.

    One of the great joys in life is seeing someone young you care about enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done. Pup had tryouts for a competitive travel vball league two days ago. She is good, but so are a lot of girls. She wouldn’t acknowledge that she knew she had done well, but she possessed this sort of lilt about her. There were only a few slots and she was the only one of her friends to make it after the first tryout. The other girls have to go back. She wasn’t smug when she got the email nor did she feign any humility. She worked hard for it.
    Sadly we have no choice at this point but to pay for private training. The school is too small to have that much talent. She will get video for scouts, and SAT prep classes with the deal, everyone who works in the club is associated with college vball.

        TY I thought I was the only one watching their idiot robotic faces. These two purveyors of “truth” actually believe that they know best. They can tell about thoughts so they ban Qannon but the violent activists of BLM are ok. Qannon has never called for violence imho.

          Jack is mentally ill. Suckaburger is a misogynist.

            A couple of weeks ago, the gossip blog I read had an item of an unidentified tech giant who “allows” the politicians to drag him out in public, belittle him, etc every now and then knowing that they will NEVER actually do anything. He reportedly has the “goods” on all of them.

          They’re obviously pretty sharp, given their success.

          Some in Congress are not so sharp, and no match for them.

          But success often breeds contempt, haughtiness, & arrogance, the kind of stuff the Bible warns about, e.g., Proverbs 16:18, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”

          The Greek word for “pride” in the Septuagint translation (done ~250 B.C. at the request of Egyptian ruler Ptolemy II) transliterates into the English word, “hubris”.

          “Pride” is ambiguous in English, since it can mean either arrogance or reasonable, justifiable self-respect for accomplishments, as in, “The Few, the Proud, the Marines”. I’m proud of my Marine nephew, but neither of us are haughty & arrogant, looking down on others.

      My local chapter of the DAR has bought into the cancellation. They’re giving suggestions for where to buy wreaths to put on the graves of the veterans in your family yourself. I guess that works if your family has lived in the same place for generations.

    The Trib has stopped publishing whether or not deaths took place in ltc’s. Now just ages. 3 deaths yesterday 1 in 70’s, 1 in 80’s, and 1 in 90’s. I bet they were in care centers.

    “A hearing on the Trump campaign’s federal lawsuit in Pennsylvania, seeking to stop state officials from certifying the results of the vote in the state, is set for Tuesday, after a judge denied a campaign lawyer’s request to delay the hearing.”

  56. Constance says:

    What I don’t get is why is this up to President Trump’s lawyers? If there is huge fraud done by computer systems and laws were broken why is the Justice department not doing something NOW. Or LAST WEEK? Why do we even pay tax dollars for the the FBI and Justice Department when they do nothing for the country or for The People. The CIA actively works against us?

    This is insanity!

      He also said the Republic would stand until the people decide they can vote themselves money from the treasury.

      Here we are.

      But take heart in the Declaration of Independence:

      We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

    Not sure it means much, but Kamala Harris still hasn’t resigned her Senate seat. Note that when she does, it’s gone, and given to someone else (via the CA Gov).

  62. John Denney says:

    Watched this again (it’s been years) Sunday night.

    Filmed in Finland with tremendous technical challenges – a lot of modern tech doesn’t work at -60 Fahrenheit; e.g., insulation on electric cables gets brittle and shatters if you move it. But they overcame those challenges, & the winter scenery is gorgeous!

    The outdoor winter shots are so very cold, and the indoor shots so very warm & cozy, just as some people’s hearts are so cold & harsh while others’ are so nice & warm.

    Great movie!
