That sinking feeling...

Breitbart News is taking the business of outrage to Europe
Milo Yiannopoulos, an editor at Breitbart, explained after Mr Trump’s victory that half of voters are “repulsed by the Lena Dunham, Black Lives Matter, third-wave feminist, communist, ‘kill-all-white-men’ politics of the progressive left.” Breitbart saw it coming a while ago, he added. The company’s expansion plans suggest it sees something coming in Europe, too. It already has a website in Britain and in January it will launch French and German sites.

I feel for Europe with Breitbart invading them. Good luck!

Some Bonehead Said This To Me In A Comment Section Online (I often test out my one-liners or just vent)

Trump will be the best president in your short lifetime shofar.

Me: Actually in my "short" lifetime, my life was better under these 3 presidents "shofar":

  • 3. JFK. He ended the Cuban Missile Crisis and prevented the world from getting blown up by Russians.
  • 2. Obama. He cleaned up MOST of the mess Bush left, which included 2 ugly wars and a crashing economy with 0 help from Republicans.
  • 1. Clinton. Jobs jobs jobs. It was the economy stupid. The best economy in my lifetime and the introduction of the Internet to the masses and all its benefits. Thank you Al Gore.

End of comment.

Now we have entered Trumpdom and apparently, anything goes.

Paul Ryan Thinks Trumps Tweets Don't Matter
The defenses of President-elect Donald Trump’s Twitter feed are all pretty horrible. But of the many baffling and dangerous premises being used to defend Trump’s use of Twitter as a bully pulpit for spreading pernicious lies, perhaps the most baffling and dangerous is this one: It’s just words.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan did a version of this on 60 Minutes on Sunday when he said that the veracity of Trump’s tweets doesn’t matter.

Trump Is Dragging His Feet On Transitioning 
Obama officials alarmed at slow pace of agency-level transition. The slower pace applies not only to key appointments throughout his administration, but also to Trump's lower-profile agency review teams, whose nitty-gritty work with Obama's career bureaucrats could make or break Trump's pledge to get his presidency...

Trump supporters are so cheery now that they can freely say "Merry Christmas!" and "Sandy Hook was staged by child actors!" to anyone. - LOLGOP

Trump’s Stock Sales? Bullsh*t.
 By Rick Wise

The report that Trump sold all his stock holdings in June has been out there since Monday and nobody has yet called “bullsh*t” on it. So let me be the first to say:


Investigations to continue till 2116. 
Why do I think it’s bullsh*t?  Because if Trump had sold all his stocks in June he would have said so at the time, declared himself Mr. Clean, bragged about his brilliance as an investor and how much money he made on the sales, crowed about using the proceeds to self-fund his campaign, and challenged Clinton to divest her stock holdings too.

Then the fawning media would focus on Clinton’s refusal to divest her holdings and on Clinton’s many conflicts of interest.  Trump would escape scrutiny entirely.

But what if he didn’t make money; what if he lost money?  In May, Trump’s financial disclosure report showed he owned $15,000 - $50,000 in Energy Transfer Partners stock – the company building the Dakota Access Pipeline.  That’s down from $500,000 - $1,000,000 a year earlier.

Those figures came from Fortune on November 26, with no angry late-night tweets from Trump disputing the reported holdings (and calling Fortune a failing, left-wing rag that nobody reads).

We don’t know the exact numbers but if we look at just the midpoints of those ranges, the value of Trump’s Energy Transfer Partners stock fell to about $37,500 from about $750,000 a year earlier – a stunning 95% decline.

Way to pick ‘em, Donald!  This must be step #1 in the Trump formula for making a small fortune in the stock market: “Start with a large fortune …”

He's watching you.
Of course, we would never know that he lost a small fortune in the market because he would just lie about it.  He lost money?  No, he would say he made money.  How?  Strategic genius.  Proof?  Trade confirmations? Tax returns? Forget about it; those are nobody’s business.  And you wouldn’t understand them anyway.

No, Trump still owns those stocks and any report to the contrary is bullshit.  Trump’s solution to his conflicts-of-interest problem will be the same as his solution to everything else: lie about it, create a diversion, and move on. It works every time.

Trump will overturn Obama’s decision on the Dakota Access Pipeline in January and oil will begin flowing under the Missouri River while money begins flowing to Trump's brokerage account.

Let’s face it: Donald Trump is the P. T. Barnum of our time.  Any of his pronouncements on any subject, in the absence of objective confirming evidence, have to be seen for what they are: Bullsh*t.

Trump Has No Intention Of Leaving His Business Interests
The first Bloomberg National Poll since the election shows 51 percent of those surveyed are very or mostly confident the billionaire businessman will put the nation’s best interests ahead of his family’s finances when he deals with foreign leaders.
The president-elect has has made a vague pledge on Twitter that he will seek to distance himself from his businesses to avoid any appearance of a conflict, although ethics experts have suggested that selling his corporate assets is the only sure way to separate them from his new position of power. He’s scheduled a Dec. 15 news conference to address the topic.
