There Are No Mr. Smith’s In Washington Any More

Bitter partisan politics played out today as President Donald Trump sparred with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer over a variety of issues, with Vice President Mike Pence present as well. Things became incredibly heated when Trump pressed for Congress to fund the building of the U.S. – Mexico border wall, and threatened to shutdown the government if his request was denied. Pelosi reportedly mocked the President behind closed doors and in essence stating he was throwing a tantrum.

Don’t care which way you vote or which way your ideology leans, everyone in the U.S. government is a crook. Most certainly all of the people in the picture above. Thousands of federal employee paychecks are at risk come Christmas time, but all they care about is the power play.

Ohhhhhhhh Stormyyyyyy

In a setback for porn star Stormy Daniels and her attorney Michael Avenatti, a judge today ordered Ms. Daniels to pay back approximately $300,000 in fees to Trump’s attorneys in the defamation case brought about by the President.

Guilty verdict = criminal action

(We know; we’ve played this song before – but we love it and it fits the piece!)

The Revolving Door Keeps Spinning

Prior to attending the Army – Navy game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, President Donald Trump announced that Chief of Staff John Kelly will be stepping down from the position at the end of the year. The action is believed to be the direct result of the Mueller investigation as Kelly interviewed briefly with the Mueller team as a part of the Russia probe. Kelly, a retired Marine corps general, lasted approximately a year and a half with the Trump administration. He had been appointed to help rein in some of the chaos that surrounded the White House staff. Alas, it appears that the continuing investigation into the Trump administration, a clash of egos, and the tightening noose of subpoenas and indictments have prevented any chance of that outcome.

The Monroe Doctrine

Not Marilyn Monroe foo’

195 years ago today, on December 2nd, 1823, President James Monroe declared during his State of the Union address that any European nation further attempting colonialism in the Western Hemisphere would be considered an unfriendly provocation against the United States of America. It came at a time when many Latin American countries were declaring independence from Spanish and Portuguese rule.

Do you hear what I hear? Ahhh, ’tis the season…

Creeping ever closer…ever closer…

While the kids are all snuggled in their beds…

A vision of an indictment dances in Trump’s head.

Backstabbing. Reneged plea agreements. Potential Presidential Pardons. Russian Probes. It’s in the air. You can feel it. Merry Christmas 2018! DC is about to have some serious bells ringing.

The Lunatics Are Running The Asylum

In what should really be a surprise to no one, former WWE wrestling star and former governor of Minnesota, Jesse “The Body” Ventura, announced today that he is considering a run against President Trump in 2020. Ventura stated that if Trump could win the presidency, he most certainly would have a chance having run the great state of Minnesota. The 67 year old Ventura also responded that he could out talk President Trump having seen him as a guest participant in two previous Wrestlemania events.

We’d really rather see Hillbilly Jim or King Kong Bundy take a crack at it…

General Meltdown

General Motors has announced that it will shut down production at 5 car plants; 4 of which will be closed for good. The action will result in the layoffs of 15,000 employees, nearly 6,000 of whom are salaried. General Motor’s maneuver is due to slumping sales in the sedan division.

President Trump chided the move by GM CEO Mary Barra, noting the bailout of the company and the fact that the company is the lifeblood for many in the state of Ohio where one of the plants will be closed. Plants will also be closed in Detroit and Warren Michigan, Ontario, and Maryland.

Economic experts are calling the General Motors news evidence that the economy is slowing down, especially when coupled with the Toys R Us and Sears bankruptcies.
