- CRITTER TALK
by Glenn R. Geist
Seems half of the Trump Trolls now believe there really was a Bowling Green Massacre and I’m still hearing about “Crooked” Hillary’s (lockherup) emails. You remember her – unsuitable because she gave a talk at Goldman Sachs. The Zen concept of the mind of no mind seems far easier to comprehend when contemplating the Republican parallel: pure mindlessness itself.
Mishandling classified documents, putting the Goldman Sachs CEO in the Cabinet already clogged with conflicts of interest. I’m only hitting the low points here, there are so many offences that would have cost anyone else an election and possible their freedom, but nothing happens. Nothing. The busting of Flynn yesterday, collaborating with Russian interference in an American election and interfering with our sanctions against Russia? Is that Treason? It’s hard to say, but it’s orders of magnitude more egregious than it would need to be to raise serious talk of high crimes and misdemeanors. And yet our so called president lounges on the beach at our expense while boat traffic is kept as far out of sight as reality, responsibility and accountability.
Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) tweeted yesterday that Trump allowed news photographers to capture an image of himself with Intel’s CEO and a classified document “lockbag,” with the key still inside. Lock him up. President so-called made calls on private phones at Trump Tower to conduct foreign diplomacy and is still using it for official business and childish tweets. Lock him up.
Private email servers are de regueur for Trump Staff and nobody cares, but the real horror is that while Hillary’s emails are still on the House Oversight Committee’s agenda I don’t hear a damned thing about Felonius Flynn and his conversations with the Russian government during the campaign. Interfering with official United States Government actions against a foreign government.
Offering aid and the comfort of knowing Trump would undo sanctions, is *criminal and close enough to treason for most people to demand impeachment and imprisonment — but Hillary gave a talk and Hillary’s email server, although it was never breached and she was cleared twice, is still under investigation. and nobody cares about deals made with an enemy by a presidential candidate. How do we go on? How do we continue with our alternate and conflicting realities, our multiple standards and our fungible facts? What kind of country denies the origin of species and asserts a Bowling Green Massacre? What kind of person smiles and talks about sports amidst such villainy? Go look in the mirror.
