Parade of Shame

Hope Hicks lost her lover, or, is she still holding on to him? Did Trump’s other trusted confident see Porters’s file containing a pic of his ex-wife with black eye? Did Von Beezlebub see this bruised women, who dare try to bring a good man down – months ago? I think the Lord of the Flies should have his parade down Pennsylvania, he in that infamous bus talking some fine-pussy talk with his naughty boys. There should be loud speakers broadcasting his degradation of women all along the way.

I was put in a parade of shame by my daughter and her lover. Her family joined in, along with my cousin Daryl Bulkley. Bell and Alley made up lies about me, as did Rena. Get the lowly hippie man – but good! Bring him down so we can get some money! Render him impotent so he never bothers righteous and sane folks again! Teach him a lesson!

My main concern was my long battle with the Religious-right that I suggested might come from my higher power. Is God – and Meher Baba – on my side! I have been on the bus.

Did you see John Kelly pass Johnson the Ball of Shame as he went after “lazy” Mexicans? I suspect Rena wanted Sherriff Dan to teach me Good Work Ethics, because, I am a lazy hippie freak.

“The difference between 690 and 1.8 million were the people that some would say were too afraid to sign up, others would say were too lazy to get off their asses, but they didn’t sign up.

I predict The Great Grandstander is going to be in his military parade, he at the head of it, leading it. He wants to give his evangelical base the biggest slab of red meat – ever! He wants to shout out

“On to Jerusalem! I am the embodiment of Godfrey de Bullion! I am the Crusader King!”

This is when Sherriff Two Stars will step onto the road, and stop Beelzebub’s Parade of Shame. I will climb up on his tank, and place him under Citizen’s Arrest. I will not be alarmed. I will be alone, because most of my friends, and all of my family, forsake me, and this Democracy. They are cowards! I was exposing them by being brave!

If this evil parade is approved, I am going to write my Congressman, Peter DeFazio, and see if he can get Further in the parade to represent The Flowery Children of Peace. War&Peace go hand in hand. Some reporters are saying Hope wrote Rob’s Papal-like pardon. Did he beg her to do this?

“Love conquers all!”

I think there should be a Sinful Right-wing Love Bus in Trump’s parade, bringing up the rear. When it comes to a halt, out rush The Sacred Righteous Redeemers dressed in white ,wearing halos and angel wings. There will be a five thousand person choir, singing ‘Jesus I Come’.

“Do not forsake me oh my darling!”

I think the President of the United States is too lazy to get off his ass – and truly repent! He should get down on his knees before his loyal wife, and beg for forgiveness.

It’s high noon! Do you know where your muse is?

Sherriff Two Stars

 

Did Hicks craft John Kelly’s response?

In an initial statement about Porter, the White House chief of staff, John Kelly, called him a “man of true integrity and honor” whom he “can’t say enough good things about.”

“He is a friend, a confidante, and a trusted professional,” he continued. “I am proud to serve alongside him.”

The statement, which the CNN report said Hicks helped craft, remained as Kelly’s comments on the matter for hours after the jarring photos were disclosed and Porter announced his resignation.

Kelly issued a second statement late Wednesday, saying he was “shocked” by the “new allegations” against Porter.

“There is no place for domestic violence in our society,” Kelly said. “I stand by my previous comments of the Rob Porter that I have come to know since becoming chief of staff, and believe every individual deserves the right to defend their reputation. I accepted his resignation earlier today, and will ensure a swift and orderly transition.”

Philippe Reines, a former top aide to Clinton, said after the CNN report that Hicks was involved with Kelly’s first statement that she “escapes warranted scrutiny.”

But something deeper has been consuming Mr. Trump. He sees the calls for Mr. Moore to step aside as a version of the response to the now-famous “Access Hollywood” tape, in which he boasted about grabbing women’s genitalia, and the flood of groping accusations against him that followed soon after. He suggested to a senator earlier this year that it was not authentic, and repeated that claim to an adviser more recently. (In the hours after it was revealed in October 2016, Mr. Trump acknowledged that the voice was his, and he apologized.)

Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) said Thursday that White House chief of staff John Kelly made a “bad decision” to retain staff secretary Rob Porter despite knowing of domestic abuse allegations against him.

Kennedy said on CNN that the claims against Porter were still allegations, but “they appear to be the truth” and the aide did the right thing when he resigned from his White House post on Wednesday.

“If you want to serve the public, particularly as a member of a president’s staff, I don’t care who you are, even if you’re a Rhodes Scholar, you can’t beat the hell out of your spouse,” Kennedy said.

“It’s wrong, and if it happened and they’re serious allegations — some honestly believe that it did happen — then Mr. Porter did the right thing,” he added.

Kennedy said that he has full confidence in Kelly and that he had simply made a mistake.

“I think Gen. Kelly has done an extraordinary job as chief of staff to President Trump. I think he’s a good man, and sometimes good people make bad decisions.”

Kennedy’s comments came on the heels of a CNN report that senior White House officials, including Kelly, had been aware of the allegations against Porter for months. President Trump reportedly did not know about the allegations until this week.

Porter’s two ex-wives detailed the allegations to the FBI during the aide’s background check. Despite having worked in the White House for more than a year, Porter never received a full security clearance because of those allegations.

Porter denied the claims in a statement on Wednesday, calling them part of a “coordinated smear campaign.”

“These outrageous allegations are simply false,” he said.

In an initial statement after the allegations against Porter surfaced, Kelly called the aide a “man of true integrity and honor” and said that he is “proud to serve alongside him.”

A second statement issued by Kelly late Wednesday condemned domestic abuse, but argued that Porter had a right to defend his reputation.

“I stand by my previous comments of the Rob Porter that I have come to know since becoming Chief of Staff, and believe every individual deserves the right to defend their reputation,” Kelly said.

The same Huckabee who wanted to transform the GOP in 2008 (to represent all Americans) here publicly embraces the moment in which Andrew Jackson both rejected the Constitution and its notion of checks and balances, and decided not to honor our treaty with the Native Americans. Instead, he marched them off their land and across the country, an upheaval that would cost thousands of Cherokee lives. Ignoring the Supreme Court, Jackson chose gold over honor, might over mercy and presidential power over the governing structure of the land.

If Sarah Sanders believes in benefits to the rich over the poor, corporations over individuals, the sick over the well, and if she still calls herself a Christian, then what is Christianity? If she believes that the court’s rulings should be overthrown by a single president (one not elected by a majority), that a president should act like a monarch, then what is a Republican?

Perhaps Sarah Huckabee Sanders tells herself that she is still a good Christian and still a good Republican. However, the rest of us may have to change our definitions of those words. As for me, I remember the words of the younger and less cynical Mike Huckabee, who said: “Let us never sacrifice our principles for anybody’s politics. Not now, not ever.”

“The difference between 690 and 1.8 million were the people that some would say were too afraid to sign up, others would say were too lazy to get off their asses, but they didn’t sign up.
