Contender  B Class Movie Star — Putin Lover

Steven Seagal, Americas answer to Bruce Lee is a skilled and recognized American actor, screenwriter, producer, martial artist, and musician.  Seagal was born in Lansing, Michigan. A 7th-dan black belt in Aikido, he began his adult life as a martial arts instructor in Japan, becoming the first foreigner to operate an Aikido dojo in the country.   

 I think his size might have something to do with it…   Many Japanese ware short, he is tall.   He later moved to Los Angeles, California, where he had the same profession. In 1988, Seagal made his acting debut in “ Above the Law”. 

By 1991, he had starred in four successful films. In 1992, he played Navy SEAL counter-terrorist expert Casey Ryback in Under Siege. During the latter half of the 1990s, Seagal starred in three more feature films and the direct-to-video film The Patriot. Subsequently, his career shifted to mostly direct-to-video productions. He has since appeared in films and reality shows, including Steven Seagal: Lawman, which depicted Seagal performing his duties as a reserve deputy sheriff.

Critic:  His films have been appraised as self-indulgent hero worship and he always wins in the end fighting the odds, ducking bullets and beating the crap out of bad guys, running off with the girl… If you saw one of his films you already had the script for the next one… great action, boring writing, predictable…  gotta love the action as the story line was written by some bored Klingon ‘ B “ class writer.  

CREDITS:  Seagal is a guitarist and has released two studio albums, Songs from the Crystal Cave and Mojo Priest, and performed on the scores of several of his films. He has worked with Stevie Wonder and Tony Rebel, who both performed on his debut album. He has also been involved in a line of  “ therapeutic oil "  products and energy drinks. In addition, Seagal is a known environmentalist, animal rights activist, and supporter of 14th Dalai LamaTenzin Gyatso. Thats good news to me !

CONS:  He is known for his outspoken political views and support of Vladimir Putin, to whom he once referred as “ One of the great living world leaders”. He was granted both Russian and Serbian citizenship in 2016. In 2018, he was appointed Russia’s special envoy to the US.  From 1996 to 2018, multiple women accused Seagal of sexual harassment or assault.

Contender  —  Mike Pompeo  —  Another Self Indulgent Trumpet  --

Mike Pompeo@mikepompeo Bragged:    “ The day I left office, China sanctioned me. Why? After 40 years of appeasement, we took a different approach — we got tough on China.   We stood up for every American & refused to let them walk all over us.   Anyone implying we weren’t tough on China simply wasn’t paying attention”.

My Reply:  Unfortunately they were and realized your T-RUMP hate, fear and bully insult policies and big mouth are not how you deal with the second most dangerous country in the world, thats not what people are saying and your big mouth like T-RUMPS bluster has put us potentially in a cold war, a trade war, potential for conflicts escalating and with North Korea a total pan Asian F*ck-Up… we think you blew your horn so much your balls sank…



Contender  — Sen John Kennedy  —   

  • Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) compared mass shootings to drunk driving incidents at a Senate hearing on gun violence following the deadly shooting in Boulder, Colorado. We now know the identities of the 10 victims of Monday's mass shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado. We also know more about the suspect, 21-year-old Ahmad Al Alibi Alissa, who was taken into custody after the shooting and faces 10 counts of murder.  I’m sorry he shares the name with the former President but this is one lying moron imbecile who so ignorant when driving his car refuses to make left turns.


Contender  —  Sen. Josh Hawley  
—  

  • Sen. Josh Hawley, a one year Senator from Missouri, climbed out of the sewer and was the first Senator to say he would object to election results.  He has condemned the Capitol violence but was also pictured raising a clenched fist towards Trump supporters. He has defended his actions and decried the decision by his publisher, Simon and Shuster, to cancel a forthcoming book.  He is a liar and fairly stupid.  Hawley also objected to criticism from Joe Biden which Toomey echoed on Sunday.

  • The President-elect invoked Hitler’s propaganda minister, saying the  GOP Senators were “part of the big lie …  History tells us it was Hitler’s  minister of Propaganda Herr Goebbels and the great lie.  You keep repeating the great lie, no white lies allowed, repeating the lie, over and over loud and often”   Guardian columnist and former US labor secretary Robert Reich wrote that Cruz and Hawley “should be forced to resign”.

  • “Knowing Trump’s allegations of voting fraud were false,” he wrote, the two Republicans “led the move to exclude Biden electors – even after the storming of the Capitol – thereby lending Trump’s claims credibility.The United States constitution says ‘no Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress’ who ‘shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against’ the constitution, ‘or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof’. 

 
Contender —  Cong. Mo Brooks  —  Congressman Mo Brooks —  A true Trumpet Dickhead slated to be non-relented soon.  My cat has a higher  IQ. And sh*t’s in a litter box.  Mo is not even toilet trained… just a mouth and it’s a stupid one…  

Republican Rep. Mo Brooks pushed back Thursday on Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell's account of having to hire a private investigator to locate Brooks for a lawsuit seeking to hold him accountable for the January 6 Capitol insurrection. The Alabama Republican argued that he had not changed his behavior and had been publicly accessible.

Brooks said in a statement that he's not avoiding the lawsuit and suggested the California Democrat could have handed him the suit during a House vote or that he could have been found at public appearances. He also criticized Swalwell's unsuccessful request to use federal marshals to serve the lawsuit, which a judge said this week wouldn't be allowed because of separation of powers concerns.

"I am avoiding no one. I have altered my conduct not one iota since Swalwell's politically motivated, meritless lawsuit was filed," Brooks said through a spokesman on Thursday.

Serving a congressman on the House floor could be difficult because Swalwell himself isn't able to do it, under federal rules, and it's possible the sergeant at arms would have to give permission for a process server. And the halls of Congress, as Swalwell's filing claimed Wednesday, aren't as accessible because of security. 

Personally finding Brooks is one way to get him served, but it is not the only way. It is also possible for Brooks to have his staff or his lawyer help him accept the lawsuit, but they haven't done that. 

Brooks' response comes after Swalwell's attorneys asked in a court filing Wednesday for additional time to try to get the lawsuit to Brooks. 

After Swalwell sued in March, his attorneys tried to reach the Alabama Republican through calls to the congressman's office and by sending a letter to formally provide him notice he had been sued, a necessary step in this type of court proceeding.

When they couldn't get the lawsuit to Brooks, the Swalwell legal team hired a private investigator to find him -- only to be hampered in April and May partly by the visitor lockdowns around the US Capitol complex, which were put in place for Congress' protection after the siege, according to their filing Wednesday. Following the Swalwell team's calls to Brooks' staff members, they emailed, too, and did not receive a response.

"Plaintiff had to engage the services of a private investigator to attempt to serve Brooks personally -- a difficult feat under normal circumstances that has been complicated further in the wake of the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol that Defendants incited," Swalwell's court filing continued. "Plaintiff's investigator has spent many hours over many days in April and May at locations in multiple jurisdictions attempting to locate and serve Brooks, to no avail."

Brooks' co-defendants, including ex-President Donald Trump, had lawyers who accepted the lawsuit for each of them. 

Trump has already argued in court that he can't be liable for the insurrection. 

In the suit, Swalwell alleges that Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., Trump's former lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Brooks broke Washington, DC, laws, including an anti-terrorism act, by inciting the riot, and that they aided and abetted violent rioters and inflicted emotional distress on members of Congress.

Swalwell claims that the four men prompted the attack on Congress with their repeated public assertions of voter fraud, their encouragement that supporters go to Washington on January 6, and in their speeches that day. Each man had told the crowd that Joe Biden's electoral certification in Congress could be blocked, and that Trump's supporters should fight, the lawsuit alleges.

Brooks spoke at the pro-Trump rally on January 6, saying, "Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass." He then asked the rally attendees if they were willing to fight.

Brooks has denied responsibility for the riot, calling Swalwell's lawsuit a "meritless ploy" and telling a radio show host the day after the attack that he "absolutely" had no regrets. He later said in a statement, "No one at the rally interpreted my remarks to be anything other than what they were: A pep talk after the derriere-kicking conservatives suffered in the dismal 2020 elections."


Contender   — Sen. Lindsey Graham  —  Changes Sides When Convenient  --

  • Sen. Lindsey Graham  —  “On The Secondary Front” — Coldest Trumpet Bastard In Congress  —  T-RUMPS moves and orders to open business, and with no rules and defenses in place, in addition the pressure he created has resulted in 100,000 additional Americans who just could not handle being out of work, the bills, lost homes, homeless, their business’s closed, starving, and living on the street.  
  • Depression and Suicides are at an all-time unrecorded high… Estimated at another 100,000 might be in trouble with PTTS.  Similar to PTSD (Post Traumatic StressSyndrome)  PTTS is Post Traumatic T-RUMP Syndrome 
  • Our country, the bastion of freedom in the world, is suffering because of one man who has become a pariah and lost the respect of the rest of the countries on the planet.  
  • His friends are leaders you would not allow in your house when you saw how many people they have killed and he is a rising star in the group of people who should be executed.  
  • Lest we Forget Lindsey Graham… A man of many faces and sides, changes both about twice a year.  He changes things faster than a day nurse in a diarrhea  clinic.
  • Says he hates T-RUMP to the press, hops on a plane and flies to Mar-A-Lago and plays golf with him right after.   NOTE: This fellows designation will be changed from Scumbird to Sh*t bird and it’s conclusive as he is so full of it…
  • Brings a new level to the usage of the word “Fraud”.



Contender —  Ron Johnson  —  Who managed to take the train to Washington and create lies he shares with other elected officials from across the United States and beyond.  He deserves the Big Dick Award as he is convinced of his own stupidity.   And is brainless and a liar to boot.  His support sounds like something from the class President of the fifth grade elections.   Here with other Reptilians he is doing a Giuliani Investigation in the Ukraine.

Ron Johnson is our July leader in statements made lacking intelligence, science, common sense and overpowered by the fact he is a frickin moron.

 CNN —   Once again the Senator showed  his ignorance  —  Sen. Ron Johnson insisted again last week that he is not a climate change denier, but CNN’s KFile found video of him from just weeks earlier telling a Republican group that it is “bullsh*t.” 

 “I don’t know about you guys, but I think climate change is – as Lord Moncton said – bullsh*t,”  the Wisconsin Republican said, without uttering the expletive but mouthing it, and referring to British conservative climate change denier Lord Christopher Monckton. “By the way, it is.”

Johnson, a member of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, continued that “there are more and more scientists” writing books “just laying this to waste” and questioned why the US was focused on the climate crisis at all.   “What are we doing here? Well, we’re killing ourselves,” said Johnson, adding, “it’s a self-inflicted wound.”

Most scientists commented he is a self inflicted cancer in our politics.  Johnson made the comments in early June to the Republican Women of Greater Wisconsin Luncheon at Alioto’s in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

His recent comments come as North America endures a historic and dangerous heat wave expected to last until mid-Julythat scientists linked to the climate crisis. The scorching temperatures are to blame for dozens of deaths and hundreds of visits to the emergency room in the Pacific Northwest. 

Johnson, who has yet to announce he is running for reelection, has a long history of downplaying the climate crisis, but he has repeatedly refuted accusations that he is a climate change denier.

In a statement, Johnson told CNN, “My statements are consistent. I am not a climate change denier, but I also am not a climate change alarmist. Climate is not static. It has always changed and always will change.” 

The senator offered a similar statement to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel last week, and later posted a response with his opinion on climate change on his Senate website, in which he said humanity could “easily adapt” to climate change. 

Johnson’s views are at odds with scientific consensus that climate change is real and caused by human activities.

In 2016, Johnson said, “Mankind has actually flourished in warmer temperatures.” He added, “I just think the question always is what is the cost versus the benefit of anything we do to try and clean up our environment.” And in 2010, when he was a Senate candidate, he claimed that sunspots were behind climate change as opposed to man-made activity and that excessive amounts of carbon dioxide “helps the trees grow.” 

“I absolutely do not believe in the science of man-caused climate change,” he said at the time.   ( He is an ignorant moron…)

Also in 2010, Johnson falsely suggested that the country Greenland was “ Actually green at one point in time,” to dismiss the effects of climate change.  “ Thats just bullsh*t”,   I flew into Greenland and Iceland quit often from Loring AFB Maine when it was open to Thule Air Base with supplies.
Another base at  
Sondrestrom Air Base, originally Bluie West-8, was a United States Air Force base in central Greenland. The site is located 60 mi north of the Arctic Circle and 90 mi from the northeast end of Kangerlussuaq Fjord. The base is approximately 11 mi west-northwest of Ravneklippen and 80 mi east of Sisimiut,  

We used to Joke Greenland is really white with snow and glaciers and  Reykjavik, Iceland is really greener.   

It is quite the base and Located more than 1100 km north from the Arctic Circle and about 1500 km away from the North Pole, Thule Air Base is the northernmost military base located of the United States of America. It is located in the eastern part of Greenland.

Aside from its military purpose, ballistic missile early warning,  glacier sampling and testing for warming trends the base is placed into a piece of paradise on Earth. The area is the only place on Earth where three glaciers get together, not to mention about the impressive sightseeings with icebergs and polar animals.  They are studying the melting of these glaciers

The main mission of this unusual military base is to provide missile warning operations. At the same time, it deals with the general space control. Aside from being the northernmost base of the USA, the place is also the northernmost port in the world. It sees over 3000 flights every year.

And only a few months ago, in March 2021, the senator reiterated that belief in an interview with The New York Times. “I could be wrong there, but that’s always been my assumption that, at some point in time, those early explorers saw green,” Johnson said. “I have no idea.” The true origin of the country’s name comes from Erik the Red, a Norse explorer who sought to attract settlers to the country.   

In early June at the Republican luncheon, Johnson said that the media and Democrats used the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change to create a “state of fear” and “control.” He also criticized committees in Washington seeking to address climate change. 

“It was all about creating the state of fear as they tried to do with global warming. Oh, I’m sorry. It’s climate change now. Yeah. Whatever works,” mocked Johnson. “Whatever works that they can, you can set up a state of fear so they can step in and alleviate their fear.”

“Of course, you know, the way they are is alleviated and it’s amazing in Washington, you see these committees, all these problems we’re always dealing with. Right. All these issues. I don’t, I don’t recall an issue where the first solution isn’t always more money,” said Johnson. “More money. More money. More money and, of course, you follow the money and the money produces control.”

Notably, a small group of House Republicans recently created the Conservative Climate Caucus, which seeks to educate Republicans on climate change policies and legislation as an alternative to well-known progressive policies like the Green New Deal.

Summing it up Ron Johnson is a trumpet moron, ignorant and his mouth is exceeded only by the score levels of Gerbils engaged in cliff diving…  something akin to “  yah-hooooeee…... splat !!!"



👺  Contender —  Cong. Devin Nunes  —  Trump DOJ Subpoenaed Twitter 

Screen Shot 2021-07-26 at 4.12.45 AM

If during the administration of T-RUMP also known as Denegration 2o16, one of his prime supporters was Devin Nunes.  Unfortunately Mike Pence got the job as professional sphincter observer and Devin Lost out.  Nevertheless less, his stupid commentary befitting lots of time on Fox news merely exercises stupidity and mis-information of the highest Reptilian order.

He truly is a scumbag.   Devin Gerald Nunes is an American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for California's 22nd congressional district since 2003. A Republican, he serves as chairman of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and was a member of President Trump's transition team.

The T-RUMP administration subpoenaed Twitter for information related to a parody account that criticized Devin Nunes, a close ally to the former president, according to federal court records released on Monday…


President Donald Trump will award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to two of his most vocal political allies before he leaves office later in January, according to a number of reports.

The President will bestow the highest honor in the US for a civilian to staunch ally California Rep Devin Nunes on Monday, The Washington Post first reported.

Rep Jim Jordan of Ohio is also expected to receive the award in the coming days, according to The New York Times, but those plans have reportedly not yet been finalised.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom acknowledges “exceptional contributions to the security or national interests of America, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."

Members of Congress have received the honor in the past but it has typically been granted at the end of a lawmaker’s time in public service or in recognition for an unrelated achievement, according to The Times.

In a poll I personally took, those that know Nunes and Jordan declared  various commentary hinging on “ What th f*ck”, it completely lowered the standard for the medal.  Both should have been thrown out of Congress or hanged for things they said or did.  


Investigating messages related to the parody Twitter account @NunesAlt, which poses as the California representative’s mother, the Department of Justice (DoJ) sought to identify the user behind the account, according to a motion to quash the subpoena.

“It appears to Twitter that the subpoena may be related to Congressman Devin Nunes’s repeated efforts to unmask individuals behind parody accounts critical of him,” the document states.

In 2019, Nunes filed a $250m lawsuit that accused the media giant of defamation while profiting from abusive behavior and language. The lawsuit also sued @NunesAlt and another parody account posing as the representative’s cow, @DevinCow.

Last summer, a judge ruled that the representative could not sue Twitter, citing section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects sites from liability for what users may post.

Twitter has not complied with the demand to share the identities. A lawyer for the site said last summer it had no intention of doing so.  In the DoJ investigation, a gag order prohibiting Twitter from talking about the subpoena was issued along with the document.

According to the motion to quash the subpoena, Twitter asked the justice department for an explanation regarding the criminal investigation. The government said messages by the parody account were a possible violation of a federal statute that makes it a felony to use interstate communications to threaten to injure someone – but did not point to any tweet that made a threat.

A Twitter account holder would typically be notified of any legal request – such as subpoenas, court orders or other legal documents – regarding their account, according to Twitter’s rules and policies. However, in this case, prosecutors got a court order in November to keep the subpoena secret, citing a fear that its disclosure could harm the investigation.

On Tuesday, a Twitter spokesperson said the company was “committed to protecting the freedom of expression for those who use our service. We have a strong track record and take seriously the trust placed in us to work to protect the private information of the people on Twitter.”

The user behind @NunesAlt wrote that the release of the court records was “ the closest thing I’m gonna get to a Mother’s Day card”.  He or she also quoted Eric Garcia, a Democrat running against Nunes in California, who referred to Nunes’s prominent opposition to the investigation of Russian election interference and links between Trump and Moscow.

“So,” Garcia wrote, “the person who claims secret courts and organizations and trying to destroy our country tried to use a secret grand jury subpoena to find the identity of @NunesAlt. How many other times did Devin use the DoJ to try and attack private citizens?”

GoFundMe campaign has been created by the user behind @DevinCow to pay for the costs related to the congressman’s lawsuit against both parody accounts.  “These parodies are anonymous on Twitter, however, they are real people behind these accounts who have retained attorneys to respond and fight these allegations in court,” reads the fundraiser description.

By Tuesday, the fundraiser had raised more than $146,000.  Nunes has filed several defamation lawsuits, including one against the political journalist Ryan Lizza and Hearst, which owns Esquire, over a 2018 article about his family farm. The lawmaker also filed a $435m libel suit against CNN over a report about his contacts with a Ukrainian prosecutor.


👺  Contender  — Cong. Steve Scalise  —



👺  Contender  —   T. Gen. Michael Flynn — Scumbag, Liar and Traitor 



👺  Contender  AG-DOJ  —  Willian Barr  —  (CNN)A federal judge this week rejected the Justice Department's attempts to keep secret a departmental opinion to not charge former President Donald Trump with obstruction at the end of the Mueller investigation, calling the administration's lawyers "disingenuous." 

The department had argued in court that the largely redacted March 2019 memo was legal reasoning that helped then-Attorney General William Barr make a decision about Trump. But federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson said she believed Barr and his advisers had already decided they wouldn't charge the President with a crime before he got the written advice, and the memo was partly strategic planning instead of legal reasoning -- and therefore could be made public. 

Biden administration confirms Russian agent shared 2016 Trump polling data as part of election interference efforts

The decision adds to the criticism federal judges and others have had about Barr and his handling of the end of the Mueller investigation. Jackson and others have repeatedly questioned Barr's motives to keep documents related to the investigation -- including Mueller's findings and Barr's reactions to them -- secret or by delaying their release.

"The agency's redactions and incomplete explanations obfuscate the true purpose of the memorandum, and the excised portions belie the notion that it fell to the Attorney General to make a prosecution decision or that any such decision was on the table at any time," Jackson wrote in a 35-page opinion released Tuesday.

"The fact that [Trump] would not be prosecuted was a given," she added.

The judge's opinion comes in a lawsuit where the government transparency group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington is seeking access to DOJ documents through the Freedom of Information Act. 

CREW and several other groups are still trying to pry new records from the Mueller investigation into the public's eye, through lawsuits and other challenges. The case Jackson decided this week deals with documents around Barr's decision to decline to charge Trump.

The memo of supposed legal reasoning prepared for Barr should be released, Jackson ruled. A draft legal analysis from the Office of Legal Counsel would stay secret, Jackson also decided.

"We requested these records and filed this lawsuit due to serious doubts about the official story coming out of Barr's DOJ. While we do not yet know what is in the memo, the Court's opinion gives us confidence that we were right to have questions," Jordan Libowitz, a spokesman for CREW, said on Tuesday.

The 9-page memo that Jackson said should be released was finalized by two top political leaders in the Justice Department -- Steven Engel of the Office of Legal Counsel and Ed O'Callaghan, a top adviser in the Deputy Attorney General's Office -- the same day Barr briefed Congress about Mueller's findings on Russian interference in the 2016 election and Trump's attempts to obstruct justice. 

The Justice Department had argued in court that much of the substance of Engel and O'Callaghan's memo should stay blacked out, because it was protected internal discussions about the law and policy. One DOJ lawyer, Paul Colborn, had told the court the memo was meant to help Barr decide whether to prosecute Trump.

Engel and O'Callaghan's memo recommended no prosecution, saying that Mueller's findings weren't evidence beyond a reasonable doubt.

Jackson has read the document at issue in the case for herself, she noted. The judge said the redacted pages offer "strategic, as opposed to legal advice" to Barr. By not mentioning that in court, Jackson wrote that the DOJ was pretending the strategy discussion didn't exist. 

The way the Justice Department has handled the dispute over public access to the document “served to obscure the true purpose of the memorandum," Jackson added.


Not Worthy Of Credence, Jackson Says  —  Jackson's strongly worded opinion, though largely about technicalities around government confidentiality, comes close to accusing the Justice Department of a cover-up.

The judge wrote that while top DOJ officials prepared the legal opinion that gave Barr cover not to prosecute Trump, they simultaneously were emailing about a higher priority they had: to inform Congress the President was exonerated.

The Mueller probe thoroughly investigated several episodes where Trump tried to impede or end the inquiry into his campaign's ties to Russia. But the special counsel left the indictment decision to Barr and his top political appointees. Mueller partly found that Justice Department policy blocked the prosecution of a sitting President. After closing his office, Mueller later told to Congress that an ex-President could be prosecuted for obstruction, yet Barr had already reached a definitive conclusion in Trump's case.

Jackson reviewed closely how that decision came about, looking at court statements from department lawyers and internal emails between Barr's top advisers.

Justice Department officials' "affidavits [in court about the memo] are so inconsistent with evidence in the record, they are not worthy of credence," Jackson wrote.

Another federal judge previously slammed Barr in another public records case following the Mueller investigation, saying the attorney general had a "lack of candor" that was helpful to Trump politically when the then-attorney general told Congress and announced to the public what Mueller had found, without releasing Mueller's nearly 500-page report.
