WHO WILL FIX HUMP-ME DUMPTY

BREAKING EGG NEWS
When Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall, all the Kings horses and all the Kings men could not put Humpty Dumpty back together again.  How Sad...  The wall on which the cannon was positioned...by Mueller and fired upon during the siege, and Humpty Dumpty went tumbling down. It was severely damaged in the fall and, as the rhyme says, “  All the king’s horses, and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again.”  

After much discourse on the subject discussing our relationship today with our foreign allies I realize we are in a severely injured position because of President Trump’s diplomatic free for all screw-ups involving walls, immigration, extreme prejudice and the spreading of hatred.

He is the modern version of the Egg Head who sat on a wall during a battle. yes he was a draft dodger, with fake letters from doctors.  According to acceptable rules we’ll just rename T-RUMP as Hump-Me Dumpy due to his braggadocio attitude with women and his roving hands.


TRUMPTY DUMPTY

Humpty T-rump-ty wants to build a fake wall,
But his stupidity and lies caused him a great fall
All of the Senate old gray heads and bosses...
Will find out in 2020 when they lose in great loses..

Sooner or later his base will wake up, they were screwed by his lies 
And Jesus will wake up the Evangelicals who drop the fake tithes.... 
He is a human driftwood, a lepers pariah
Suicide the end game for those who follow the fake messiah...

His disruptions, being kind also known as three years of insults,
Bigly lies embarrassments,  false promises, threats and a lots of fake impulse...
His bullshit will not be easy to undo, even with all those dumb minds that write
Stephen Miller,  Kelly Conway, and worthless Sarah Sanders create his fake smite...

A small poem by Al Jacobson


THATS THE HIERARCHY - A NATION FURTHER DIRECTED BY SOME REALLY SICK PEOPLE

Oh lest I forget, inept, prejudiced and simply or basically heartless and stupid like the number one two and three schmucks in the ShitHouse, it isn’t a White House anymore with Miller, Conway and Sanders walking the halls.  It’s a lying shithouse.

With the courts and officials of the DOJ on the wrong side of the law, with elections coming, creeps who even use religion to rob people, and a really sick man in the WhiteHouse which has turned our foreign policy into a disaster, here and abroad it has become serious. 

“The United States is still a remarkably safe great power, and the international environment is still defined by less violence, greater freedom and wealth, and more extraordinary advances in human development than at any previous point in history,” Global life expectancy and literacy are on the rise, poverty is falling, and diseases are being eliminated, they point out.  Not true as long as people who are ignorant and stupid fail to get their Measles shots which we eradicated in 2000 and now is a worldwide epidemic again because of a few imbeciles who listened to other imbeciles. 

But while US world leadership remains intact, the authors point to a domestic decline, as US policymakers cut access to healthcare and overlook problems like the opioid epidemic, they point out in their new book, Clear and Present Safety: The World Has Never Been Better and Why That Matters to Americans.

“ Not only are domestic problems getting worse, policymakers are actively pouring gasoline on the fire,” they write. “This has created one of the great ironies of the present day—that while life is steadily improving in most of the developing world, the United States is moving backward.”

My fellow warriors,  including nine of our best Generals some who I have served, fear not for themselves but what this idiot has done and will do.  He’s too unpredictable and he sees it as an asset of strength and they see it as dangerous for the United States.  

The loose canon, the hip shooter, a man who is basically very ignorant of the law, of rules, traditions, legalities, humanity, of kindness, of almost anything good because whatever he touches gets destroyed.

The simplest solution to problems and the problem maker as needed is to vote them out.  If not, there is the 25th Amendment,  next would be Impeachment, or Censorship, and lastly Assassination which according to history he doesn’t qualify for since only good people seem to be removed that way,  we would have to make an exception.

On the other hand keep him in office and it will destroy the Republican Party for good. Not a bad Idea, then go after him in the civil courts. Best of both worlds.



WIKILEAKS - JULIAN ASSANGE ARRESTED

For the first time in seven years, Julian Assange woke up somewhere other than the Ecuadorian Embassy. The WikiLeaks founder is in jail after his dramatic arrest yesterday. The US Justice Department indicted him on a charge of conspiring to steal military secrets with Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst who supplied thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks. 

Assange denies wrongdoing and will fight extradition to the US, meaning a long and tortured legal battle awaits. Most US politicians celebrated the news of his arrest. President T-RUMP  when asked about it, said he knew “  Nothing about WikiLeaks,” though he’d said in 2016 he loved the organization.  Typical scumbag T-RUMP reply when he knows he’s wrong.

Police entered the Ecuadorian embassy in London Thursday morning, arresting Julian Assange and bringing the Wikileaks founder’s seven-year stint there to a dramatic close.   Metropolitan Police said in a statement that he was "further arrested" on his arrival at a London police station on behalf of United States authorities, who have issued an extradition warrant.



RAISING THE BULLSHIT
 BARR
Democrats are feeling some kind of way about Attorney General William Barr -- and that feeling would be anger. Barr outraged congressional Democrats after he suggested Donald Trump's 2016 campaign was spied on and said he'll investigate the FBI's actions that led to the Russia probe. Barr didn't offer any evidence to back up his shocking statement. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi fumed that Barr was "going off the rails," and other Dems accused Barr of floating the spying claim just to make Trump happy. Republicans were thrilled at the news, defending Barr as "an honorable man" and saying it was about time someone looked into how the whole Russia investigation began.

Democrats on the House Judiciary committee were livid at Attorney General William Barr after he said he'd release a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report within a week. Chairman Jerry Nadler promised a subpoena demanding more. The Dems also didn’t like that Barr wouldn’t say whether the White House had been briefed on the Mueller report.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler is preparing to “ ery quickly” subpoena the Justice Department and go to court seeking to obtain grand jury information, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff says he's made a formal request to obtain the counterintelligence information from Mueller's investigation to learn whether the President is "compromised" in any way.

"I think that's a betrayal to what he promised during his confirmation," Schiff told CNN, referring to Barr's refusal so far to not provide Congress with the full report and underlying evidence. "But it's what he was hired to do, which is to protect the President. The President wanted his own Roy Cohn and apparently he got one. But it is deeply concerning.


MNUCHIN THE DOUCHIN HAS IT IN THE BAG
Over at the House Financial Services Committee hearing,  Democrats blasted Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin ( AKA The Douch McNuch, only second to ass-kissing Champion Michael PenCe when it comes to Donald T-RUMP  after he said his agency’s lawyers talked to the White House about releasing President Trump’s tax returns.
Mnuchin said that's not interference because the lawyers weren't being directed by Team Trump.   
US Rep. Maxine Waters and others were very skeptical of that claim.   


Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday said his agency’s lawyers consulted with but did not take direction from the White House on the issue of releasing President Donald Trump’s personal tax returns.  

"I don't see that as interference," Mnuchin said when asked by New York Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney at a hearing before the House Financial Services Committee. "They consulted with them before. It was not related to the President’s tax returns, only the expectation of getting the request.

House Democrats last week formally requested Trump's tax returns from the Treasury Department using an obscure statute of tax law.  Mnuchin, who has previously testified that he would comply with requests, added that he had not and would not ask the White House for permission.  "We would not ever ask for the White House's permission on this nor did they give us the permission. As I’ve said we consulted which I believe was appropriate of our legal department,” Mnuchin said.

Maloney called “any communication" with the White House as "troubling" and said it "violates the spirit of the law." But Mnuchin sought to portray himself as independent of the White House. 

 “I am not afraid of being fired at all,” Mnuchin said when pressed by Maxine Waters, the ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee, if anything would override his responsibility to the law. 

THAT WOULD BE A GOOD START ON REDEMPTION - GETTING FIRED


NATIONALISM   

(CONFUSED WITH HITLERISM)

Meanwhile, at a House Judiciary hearing on hate crimes and white nationalism on social media, all hell broke loose. 

YouTube had to disable the comments on the live stream of the hearing because they were filled with anti-Semitic and racist remarks. And Democratic US Rep. Ted Lieu ticked off conservatives by playing a clip of conservative activist Candace Owens  saying Adolf Hitler's motive "to make Germany great" was "fine." Owens said Lieu took her remarks out of context.

YouTube was forced to disable comments on a live stream of a House Judiciary hearing on hate crimes and white nationalism on social media Tuesday morning after it was flooded with racist and anti-Semitic comments. 

The comments were an illustration of one of the issues at hand: Silicon Valley's ongoing struggle to stop the spread of hate across its platforms. Lawmakers are exploring possible legislative options on the issue. “Due to the presence of hateful comments, we disabled comments on the live stream of today's House Judiciary Committee hearing," a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement. “Hate speech has no place on YouTube," they added. 

Even here, the divide between Democrats and Republicans on the prevalence of racist material online could be seen. Rep. Jerry Nadler, a Democrat who chairs the committee, read during the hearing from a  Washington Post story  that referenced the hateful comments. 

REP. LOUIE GOHMER
(CONFUSED WITH SHEER IGNORANCE)
As one of the biggest schmucks the Congress has ever seen, Louie opened the session with more stupid remarks like he is known for.  We sincerely doubt his sanity,  thinking he’s showing more symptoms of Crainial-Rectal Unlimited Dyslexia have appeared (CRUD) or ‘ Sh*t for Brains'.

It is said.  He has not only fell off of his rocker, he did fall off his rocker, slid off the porch and almost drowned in the river Cesspool.  It might explain CRUD swimming in a cesspool. It used to be a swamp which he helped make a cesspool.  Texas will be proud when he leaves as the IQ of the state will go up dramatically. 

Gohmert (SS code GO SCHMUCK)  quickly responded, “ Could that be another hate hoax? Just keep an open mind.”  ED: The only open mind I would like to see with your lies and fabrications would be the sight of a wood axe cracking your skull  open... alas I fear it would be empty...

REPUBLICAN WITCH DOCTOR OWENS INCITED AND INVITED
The hearing included representatives from Facebook and Google, who were appearing on a panel with six other witnesses, including civil rights activists, the father of two victims of an Islamophobic attack, invited by Democrats, and a prominent right-wing activist, Candace Owens of the conservative group Turning Point USA, invited by Republicans. 

Candace Owens is an American conservative commentator and political activist. She is known for her pro-Trump stance and her criticism of Black Lives Matter and of the Democratic Party. She is the Director of Communications at the conservative advocacy group Turning Point USA which is one step short of insanity in thinking.  She is so far fake right her car has no left operable turn signal. 

The hearing was held in an effort to inform lawmakers about possible legislative steps that could be taken to tackle online hate. But the event was highly partisan, with the Democratic and Republican members of the committee spending a good deal of time going after the opposing party’s witnesses and in some instances defending their own. 

Even the witnesses themselves challenged each others' positions at times.

For the most part the representatives from Facebook and Google didn't say anything their companies hadn't said publicly before, with both maintaining they were committed to tackling challenges on their platforms. The hearing was instead dominated by partisan sniping, including exchanges over past comments made by Owens.

Rep. Ted Lieu, a Democrat, played audio of Owens appearing to defend Adolf Hitler. Owens had previously distanced herself from the comments and criticized Hitler.  Lieu did not give Owens the opportunity to respond at the hearing, but Republican Rep. Greg Steube later did. Owens claimed that Lieu had purposely only played a short segment of the tape and said that in doing so, Lieu had been “unbelievably dishonest."  

The hearing came just a few weeks after a terror attack in New Zealand that was streamed live on Facebook. Fifty people at two mosques were killed in the attack.

Social media networks have been criticized for the role their platforms can play in spreading extremist ideologies and radicalizing people, and for the lack of action they've taken on the problem of white supremacists and nationalists on their sites. Among those under fire are Facebook and Google, which owns the video sharing site YouTube, which has been blasted for hosting such content and for algorithms that can create a "rabbit hole" that takes users into more extreme videos.

Another witness, Anti-Defamation League senior vice president of policy Eileen Hershenov, talked about the dangers of smaller platforms, which white supremacists have also been known to use.  “These platforms are like round-the-clock digital white supremacist rallies, creating online communities that amplify their vitriolic fantasies,” Hershenov said.

Mark Zuckerberg’s new Facebook plan could make it harder to stop spread of violent videos.  Two weeks after the New Zealand massacre, Facebook announced that it would ban all "praise, support and representation of white nationalism and separatism" on Facebook and Instagram. 

Previously, the company had banned white supremacy, but had viewed white nationalism differently. The company said it had decided to ban white nationalism after months of consultation with civil rights groups.Neither Google-owned YouTube nor Twitter have enacted similar blanket bans of white nationalism but both companies say they have policies to fight hate and the incitement of violence on their platforms.
