#NOT MY PRESIDENT is...

one of the silliest, most childish, most solipsistic of slogans in this, the era of the hashtag-ization of American life.

We as citizens have a co-equal vote in establishing who the president is. But we do not uniquely select our own individual president. How can mature people make such a childish statement?

I thought Obama's presidency was a slow-rolling disaster for the country, and think so increasingly now that Trump has the economy booming and has ended the era of craven foreign policy. But I never expressed the fatuous view that he was #not my President. ET, you should be ashamed ... you just came in second on an exchange with NorthDakota! And how can you peddle the paranoid notion that the election was fixed?

And CP -- Trump DOES NOT WANT to be your president.... this I can tell you.

Try to grow up, Dems.

LEAF'S TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY

In case you don't remember the movie, it concerned the vicissitudes of a 12-year-old on a day when everything went bad. It seems appropriate to describe LeafWorld, because the Twink of Chesapeake is about 12 years old psychologically.

Yesterday, a gust from the attorney general's office blew Leaf's dress over his head. Mueller turned in 13 indictments of RUSSIANS embedded in the US on a "troll farm." Yesterday, Rod Rosenstein, Mueller's boss, issued this statement:

"Now, there is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election."

Now I will repeat a part of this statement for the hearing-impaired. Just in case Leaf is hard of hearing (we know he's bald -- the lady doth protest too much):

There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in illegal activity.


Leaf has already retreated to the lefty's 2nd line of defense: it proves that Russia attempted to meddle in our election. This is a great big DUH. Of course they did. Anyone who is not a total naif knows that the Russians have attempted to influence every election since World War II. That's 30, if I count right. And until 2016, Democrats minimized every instance of aggression or espionage by the Soviets/Russians. Remember Jimmy Carter lecturing to us that "we have an inordinate fear of Communism"? Remember Obama playing footsie with Russian president Medvedev promising "flexibility." Remember the Clintons accepting millions from the Soviets in return for uranium sales?

Of course, concerning the 2016 election, Mueller may yet indict Americans for collusion. It is almost certain that Team Clinton indirectly colluded with Russians in order to prepare the scurrilous "dossier." The revelation that it was fake hit Leaf hard because he has the 12 year old's fascination with urinating on mattresses.

Leaf, loosen your girdle and have a good cry.

MY SEVEN-YEAR-OLD CAN PAINT BETTER .......

.....roars the philistine when confronted with a work of modern art. Every once in a while, a commissioned work of art justifies this lament. Such was the case with the "portrait" of Michelle Obama by Amy Sherald commissioned for the National Portrait Gallery.

The wretched canvas was almost, but not quite, good enough for a high school annual. I have rarely seen a more dishonest portrait -- the person on the canvas looks like the Homecoming Queen at Fisk University in 1975. Not a hint of the actual character or appearance of the former First Lady.

So I decided to take out my oils, palette, and smock and give it a go myself. I am
rather pleased with my effort! Wadd'ya think?

ANGRY WOMEN

Let me start with a disclaimer: I do not think all women are angry, and beyond that, I don't think even a majority are. One of the interesting stats from the last election was that white women voted for Trump -- 53% -- with 2 female candidates on the ballot! So Hillary, the most unloved front-runner in US political history lost her own demographic. Nonetheless, it seems like every woman with a forum, a microphone, or a megaphone -- Hollywood stars, news personalities, academics, minority women, and politicians -- is hopping mad.

The leading story of 2017 was the Trump presidency, but I think the number 2 story was the anger of women, as evidenced by the "Resistance" and the #MeToo movement. The 2 stories are of course related, but distinct. Freud's question was will das Weib (what does the woman want?) remains as unanswerable as ever.

Several events in 2016 predicted the eruption of anger among women. The uprising at Fox News, leading to the silencing of Bill O'Reilly, started the ball rolling. Since it turned out that no one really liked him, the significance of the Fox putsch (which included Roger Ailes) was obscured. O'Reilly was brought down not for anything resembling a crime but because he was a target for the left generally, and for feminists in particular. He was dismissed because a coalition of leftist groups persuaded sponsors to drop O'Reilly, not because of his behavior..

Another event in 2016 with enormous consequences was the release of the Access Hollywood tape which displayed Trump at his locker-room best, boasting about the ease celebrities had with access to women. The fact that it was a hit piece by the anti_Trump NBC News and Washington Post was rarely recognized.

But everything modulated into a higher key when Trump was inaugurated. On Jan. 21, pussy-hatted legions of women hit the streets to protest various liberal causes but were actually a de facto protest against Trump. It was the largest single-day protest in U.S. history. Something mislabeled as a "Resistance" came into being, dedicated to the proposition that Trump should be resisted at all costs on every initiative.

In the wake of this, the #MeToo movement began, jump-started by revelations about the unusually odious predator Harvey Weinstein. As it turned out the vast majority of the accused were liberals who had even posed as "feminists" and chummed around with prominent Democrats like Hills. The revolution began to consume its own, so bye-bye Matt Lauer, John Conyers, Charlie Rose, and a host of others. The Angry Woman had little use for judging gradations of guilt -- an allegation was speedily met with by "Off with his head!" Matt Damon was skewered after making this entirely reasonable statement:

“I do believe that there’s a spectrum of behavior,” Damon said on Thursday. “And we’re going to have to figure — you know, there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and r*pe or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?” Who could disagree with this ethically sound remark? Quite a few people, as it turn out, and Damon was sentenced back into the feminist pillories.

The Angry Woman syndrome isn't confined to prominent women who have been abused. Trickle-down anger is evident every single day here on this senior forum. The sheer nastiness which the Trump presidency has elicited from our erstwhile "harpies" here is just dismaying, and -- to go a step farther -- often disgusting. We all know who the haters are. There is a central Gang of Four consisting of Panther, Maggie065, Lulu, and Katie_au_lait. Three of them are not US citizens. There are the fellow travelers who chime in: people such as Roxy, ET, Hobsons. Never a single word of rational argument, nothing by raw hatred. Perhaps a low point was reached when Lulu posted a meme depicting a dog defecating little heads of Trump.

What is wrong with these people?

TRUMP TELLS A WHOPPER IN SOTU ADDRESS

No doubt you recall when our braggadocious president announced the following in his State of the Union address:

"Something I'm very proud of, African American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded."

What a stretcher! Yes, technically it is true that the black unemployment rate hit 6.8%, the lowest recorded since the statistic has been kept by the government. But we know the truth behind Trump's bogus stats! Democrats are pushing back fiercely on this narrative.

The fact is, black unemployment stood at 0.0% during the entire administration of Democratic president James Buchanan, whose term of office was 1857 to 1861.

We weren't born yesterday, Trump!

Liberals are licking their sores tonight because Trump delivered a sound, well-written, consistent and at times inspiring message. The best line:

"Americans are dreamers too."

-- President Donald Trump

A 'POMPOUS, PUFFED-UP POPINJAY' in [LONDON'S] CITY HALL

Are you concerned that moral dry rot and atrophy of the backbone has taken over our friends in the UK? Are you irritated by their constant displays of anti-Americanism (conducted on SFF by the Last Queen of Scotland?)

Let not your heart be troubled (as Hannity is wont to say). Sadiq Khan, the Muslim mayor of London who worships at the altars of diversity and tolerance, has been called out by an un-PC politician with a somewhat unusual coiffeur of blond hair.

No, it wasn't Trump.

It was Boris Johnson, former mayor of London and one of the most prominent Conservative politicians in Great Britain. Johnson has cheek and boldness like Trump, but is considerably more studious and eloquent. He is a firm friend of the United States (where he was in fact born) and he is disgusted by the anti-Americanism displayed by the "puffed-up, pompous popinjay" Khan.

Hear what comfortable words Johnson has offered:

“[Trump] was voted into office by millions of Americans – not bad people, but on the whole good and kindly people with whom we are connected by old ties of blood and friendship and with whom we have the single most extraordinary economic relationship,” he said.

And: “Our partnership with America transcends economics, or foreign policy, or the invisible skein of shared intelligence that is so vital for our collective security. It is about shared values – and one would have thought those values, of freedom and democracy, were shared by Labour."

What a remarkable statement that was! Johnson read classics at Balliol College, Oxford, was president of the Oxford Student Union, and has written prolifically. He is the real deal, a man of great courage. The good news is that he is often spoken of as a future PM of England.

NOTORIOUS TROLL FACES 10 IN FEDERAL PEN
by Sojourner Justice, COOKED STORY dot com

A man sought by federal AUTHORITIES FOR REPEATED TROLLING of distinguished bloggers of a senior internet site has been apprehended of aggravated flaming and trolling. The apprehended TROLL, Leaf "Fluid" Exchange, Jr. sobbed piteously as he was taken into custody by federal marshals.

Testimony revealed that Mr. Exchange had repeatedly libeled members of an internet community known as SeniorFriendFinders, and launched repeated calumnies against bloggers whom he identified by code names such as "Mr Ed," "Schmuck, "Bald Guy," and various others. Numerous female enablers of the TROLL were not prosecuted in recognition of their elderly station and suspected senility.

Psychological experts for the defense failed in their efforts to gain an acquittal on grounds of insanity, which was based on the defendant's clear regression into a Freudian "genital phase." His peculiar obsession with male and female genitals and the odors of animal feces was ruled as insufficient for acquittal.

LEAF TELL US, are all Lefties sexual harassers or are all sexual harassers Lefties?

You are the obvious person to direct this question to, as you a highly visible Leftie and a sexual pervert. I'm disturbed by what I see as a marked tendency on the part of your heroes to harass the less powerful, both males and females.

What do these powerful and influential men have in common?

Harvey Weinstein, Al Franken, Charlie Rose, Chris Matthews, James Levine (Metropolitan Opera), Matt Lauer, Donovan McNabb (NFL great), Louis C.K., John Conyers, Kevin Spacey, Mark Halperin (MSNBC), Glen Thrush (NYT), Garrison Keillor, Ben Affleck, Richard Dreyfuss, Brett Ratner, Dustin Hoffman.


They are all card-carrying, virtue-signaling, supposedly feminist DEMOCRATS/LEFTIES/PROGRESSIVES. Why is this, Leaf? You are in the best position to explain this.

Yes there are a handful of conservatives on the list. There is Roy Moore, Moore, Roy, and R. S. Moore. You can eke out that list with George HW Bush, if you have the bad taste to accuse a nonagenarian former President of patting a few butts from his wheelchair.

Do you feel badly about this, Leaf? Would you care to apologize to us on behalf of your perverse colleagues? We're waiting.
