Donald Trump IS “The Perfect Storm”

 

What is the ‘perfect storm’ you ask?

The ‘perfect storm’ – a particularly bad or critical state of affairs, arising from a number of negative and unpredictable factors. – wikipedia.org

Donald Trump is most definitely a most negative and unpredictable factor which is why we are in the midst of a particularly bad, critical state of affairs.

So in other words, we are ALL about to die! Not two years from now, not one year from now, but this year because we are ALL going to be homeless, hungry, sick and destitute. Trump has managed, in just two years, to bring damn near everyone in America to their knees. 

His own government workers are calling in sick as in TSA personnel at the airport because they have been working without pay and have decided to apply for other ‘temporary jobs’ in order to tide them over. You know, those people who were put in place to keep you safe from terrorists by feeling you up real good and x-raying you before you board a flight and dispensing with your  unopened toothpaste because, well…that could be a bomb. Apparently, people often brush their teeth with bombs. Soon, no one will be concerned about your toothpaste or will they just make you wait in even longer lines before you are allowed to board that plane? Does this give you a clue to the fact that you are not being felt up or x-rayed because of terrorists, you are being felt up and x-rayed because the government can get away with doing this since you have been frightened into believing in some non-existent shadowy bogeyman even as your own government is more of an enemy to you than any other entity or ‘human’ on this planet could ever be since if the government refuses to pay the TSA agents, then that must mean that they are non-essential personnel. Just because they were ordered to report to work means nothing especially seeing as how it should have been expected that those workers would eventually have to do something to keep their lives from exploding into homelessness and hunger and no one gives a flying fart about that who are sitting all up in the White House and in the halls of congress.

But nevertheless, word is that some of you, because Trump demands a border wall, will not have to be felt up because there are not enough TSA workers to feel you up because they are calling in sick since they are not getting paid and can you believe it? The mortgage is still due, the gas and electric bills are still due and food needs to be put on the table for their families to eat. There are medical bills that need to be paid, car insurance, home owner’s and renter’s insurance need to be paid and the list is endless. But everything must grind to a halt because we need a border wall! Another sad fact is that government employees are maxing out their credit cards to keep afloat and when those are maxed out, they cannot even apply for food stamps, nor are they going to get their tax refund checks. Ain’t that something? Meanwhile, we all just wail and moan and gnash our teeth and max out the credit cards. It’s ALL good!

Millions face delayed tax refunds, cuts to food stamps as White House scrambles to deal with shutdown’s consequences

Food stamps for 38 million low-income Americans would face severe reductions and more than $140 billion in tax refunds are at risk of being frozen or delayed if the government shutdown stretches into February, widespread disruptions that threaten to hurt the economy.

The partial shutdown has cut off new funding to the Treasury Department and the USDA, leaving them largely unstaffed and crippling both departments’ ability to fulfill core functions.

To those of you who qualify for food stamps, I am so very sorry for your upcoming situation, because you won’t be able to put food on the table for your children since a border wall is much more important and as Trump tries to blame the Democrats for the ‘stonewalling’, (no pun intended), he owns this. This shutdown is his baby. The Democrats were not even in power in the House when the shutdown commenced and so how Trump can get away with blaming this fiasco on the Democrats is just beyond me. But then, he always blames his fuck ups on someone or something else. So, I guess he is staying true to form. But as usual, I digress.

How the shutdown is hurting some of America’s poorest families

Most of HUD’s routine enforcement activities have been suspended, including mandatory health and safety inspections of housing for low-income families, the elderly and people with disabilities, according to the shutdown contingency plan that HUD posted on its website. Public housing officials say they don’t know how long rental assistance payments will keep coming from the government, and a suspension could put millions of tenants at risk if the shutdown drags on into February. And if there are any problems in providing affordable housing grants to local and state governments, as well as nonprofit groups, there are few people on hand to resolve them, according to one furloughed staffer.

We already knew that the poor would be impacted first. Those who rely on food stamps and those who rely on HUD to help with rent subsidies are going to feel the pinch along with federal workers. The article also goes on to state that the shutdown will most likely make it difficult for HUD to acquire new landlords for the program because they will be unwilling to rely on what has proven to be unreliable; rent subsidies from the federal government.

This is just too horrible for words because I started blogging to bring attention to the plight of the homeless and I had to throw HUD under the bus, multiple times for their failure to maintain adequate, decent, safe and sanitary housing for mostly poor and disabled people. HUD has also failed tremendously in even putting a dent in eliminating homelessness which was supposed to have been its mission. And yet, homelessness is skyrocketing. Tent cities have formed all across America and now add to that, the folks who are housed, but who are now finding that they are sitting on a branch that’s about to break and send them spiraling back down into homelessness again. All over a border wall.

And all Trump can say to what he set in motion is:

Trump “said he’d keep the government closed for a very long period of time — months or even years,” according to Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who spoke to reporters in the White House driveway.
“Absolutely I said that,” Trump affirmed from the Rose Garden shortly afterward. “I don’t think it will, but I’m prepared.”
We don’t have months and we certainly don’t have years because there will be nothing left for anyone to want to attempt a border crossing to get. Thus far, there has been not one thing that could get the brain dead American sheeple to get up off their lazy, apathetic and complacent butts, but as this shutdown continues, more and more besides the poor and federal workers will feel the impact and as this snowball rolls down hill, it will get bigger and bigger and soon everyone will get caught up and when it explodes, it ain’t gonna be pretty!
Some mortgage loans are being held up due to the shutdown and so people are not able to close on houses. The EPA, which is ineffective anyway, is shuttering their doors. The USDA, the same. The IRS, the same. The Treasury Department, the same. And, GASP! even immigration courts have closed! I thought that was what the shutdown was all about, illegal immigration? How could this be? That the Immigration courts have closed when Trump is wreaking this much havoc over a border wall to keep out illegal immigrants from south of the border? Quite obviously, this is not about a border wall, but is all about a controlling, narcissistic, megalomaniac who enjoys being the center of attention and has to get his way even if it means destroying the very ship he captains. Can any of you imagine just how dangerous someone like that is? It would appear that we shall soon see.
Even Immigration courts have closed, forcing judges to indefinitely postpone hearings scheduled months in advance. There is already a backlog of over 800,000 cases. 
And finally, three people have been found dead in national parks that have remained open despite the shutdown. Forestry officials are forwarding letters to the Trump Administration requesting that national parks close due to the fact that there are just not enough forest rangers and other personnel to see to the safety of those who visit the parks as well as the wildlife that inhabit the parks. Toilets have overflowed. Trash is overflowing and the situation is getting more dire by the hour and even though it has been stated that an average of 6 people die each week in national parks, that figure is going to climb if the parks remain open. Meanwhile, the Trump Administration and congress continues in a ‘quien es mas macho‘, or in other words, “who is more macho?” game. One bright spot is that as Rome burns, it will bring capitalism to a screeching halt. Burn Rome, burn!

    • Bill, why don’t you tell us how you REALLY feel???!!! You have spit so much truth, I almost flipped back in my seat in awe that you captured the hideous essence of that monster in one fell swoop!

      Don’t bite my head off for me stating this, but I think we needed a ‘Trump’ because the one thing he does is expose the truth and reality that is Amerikkka. He stands for exactly what Amerikkka IS. Trump IS Amerikkka from one end of this cesspool of corruption, war crimes and crimes against humanity and animals to the other and now, there is no glossing over that fact. “If all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women, merely players,”(Shakespeare) then there is no getting around the fact that Trump is in several stages all at once; infancy, schoolboy, old man, dotage and, with the help of Big Macs, ‘death’? But before he exits stage right from most likely an, arterial ischemic stroke, he is going to make sure that he leaves the worst possible mark for posterity. World leaders, growing ever more weary of his eccentricities, tantrums, insults and lies are formulating plans to bypass this disaster. China is telling its army to prepare for war. And in my humble opinion, there is no going back. We are at a turning point and the only place to go, is down. And we are descending rapidly and meanwhile, just as, ‘supposedly’ what went on while the Titanic was sinking, the musicians are still playing, as in Wall Street’s ‘players’, as if there is nothing whatsoever amiss. But the sad fact is, the fat lady done sung and we are about to ‘give up the ghost’. Smoke and mirrors are not enough to hide reality anymore!

      And so yes, Trump IS everything you stated he is and so it is now Amerikkka’s turn to be TRUMPED!

      Bill, I sincerely thank you for that spot on comment.

      • You are absolutely right, Shelby. I should not have held back so much. But he is *exactly* what the body politic deserves and needs. I listen to the Trump apologists and recognize the same evil expressions you see on White lynch mob faces, the celebration of a cherished heritage written into the Constitution from its first word forward, the White god with European features assigned to Biblical heroes and villains, drawing genealogical lines to favor Judeo-Christian Whitehood and condemn the progeny of Ishmael to eternal disdain, evil presumptions that view Western Civilization as bestowed by its Maker with inalienable Whights by a sacred canon that permanently imposes its unassailable values on all and each who would question their divine Whights of life, liberty, and the fruits of subjugation — eternal disdain for those who do not know their place as slaves (legally in perpetuity) under eternal Colonial rule from the original 13 colonies that had already come to expect less-than-human resources from the Indigenous and imported millions from Africa to keep Manifest Destiny manifest. Trump was as inevitable as he was presumedly never expected.

      • Bill, you didn’t hold back! You fired both barrels and let ‘im have it! When people have really lit into someone like there’s no tomorrow and spit nothing but TRUTH, we often say and it’s not a question, “Tell us how you really feel!” It just means that you did NOT hold back, not at all! I’d hate to get on your bad side. You could tell a person off with such delicious words, they’d actually shake your hand afterwards. Me? They’d be ready to shoot me. You just got a way with words that some of us just don’t have. I love it! Keep on keeping on!!!

        Right Write some more. You NEED to be heard!

      • Thank you from my chakrah, Shelby. I’ve been a firebrand for most of my life, actually. My memories extend back to de jure Jim Crow, the de facto JC never went away of course. A professor once advised me to read widely, I ran with that advice. About the same time (early 1970’s) a good friend remarked about never leading your life vicariously. I stopped watching television around that time, and I still never watch it alone. Another thing I do is listen to opposing political belief systems, such as Whiteology. I read the Autobiography of Malcom X the same year it was published I learn languages to remove borders and walls that are not necessarily visible, to imagine world without borders. Here is a link to one of my posts on that topic:

        I changed the WP header for comments to: “Comments drive content, so please comment” because I listen and respond. In fact, I’m going to produce a post that contains the comments I have made on *your* page because they inspire. Whiteologists churn out enough self-congratulatory crap already, and, as you can imagine, my views do not wink and nod at racists.

      • For some strange reason, I am not seeing the link. TPTB are forever at it or is that just the Conspiracy Theorist in me? Who knows? But I do know that I can’t see the link and so I am going to post a link to your blog because for folks who like to read and that would include me, it would do us a world of good to archive to our heart’s and brain’s content.

        I wish I could say that I’m well read, been to more exotic places than I could shake a stick at or even traveled extensively, but alas, I can lay claim to none of the aforementioned, to my sorrow, to my shame. And even though I attended college and received a piece of paper for doing so, I still came out dumber than when I went in. And unfortunately, it shows. I’m not braggin’, just sayin’. And what’s even sadder is that I display my ignorance for all the world to read. I think Donald Trump and ‘yours truly’ here would be neck in neck in an ego contest and for all the wrong reasons.

        Bill, you are badass for sure! And I mean that in a most sincere and respectful way.

        And to ALL my readers, this is an excellent blog that you have SO been missing out on!

    • Dr. Bramhall, and yet, I did not even half way succeed in getting across just how bad things really are over here. The Pentagon just announced that it is having to find some way to ramp up recruitment because recruitment is so off they are running out of ways to entice people to enlist. That is why they are now accepting mentally ill, drug addicted drunks. It’s that bad. They are also saying that those who do show up at recruitment centers are not eligible for service because they are too obese.

      There is no facet of Amerikkkan life that is even up to mediocre. Everything over here is subpar and that includes but is not limited to health care, food, water, medicines and living conditions and the list is endless. There are not enough health care workers and those who are still in the field are clueless, hence why the U.S. has now descended into 3rd world status when it comes to women dying in childbirth.

      A hospital in Minnesota, Hennepin County Medical Center, is experimenting on the poor which of course would include poor Black people, poor whites and Indians by giving cops the authority to have paramedics administer ketamine, which is a powerful sedative that has stopped peoples’ hearts from beating and has stopped them from breathing.

      Hospital Suspends Trial of Paramedics Administering Ketamine

      Hennepin Healthcare plans to suspend a clinical trial of the sedative ketamine in emergency situations following criticism that Hennepin County Medical Center enrolled patients in the study without their knowledge.

      Hennepin County hospital researchers are trying to determine which of the drugs already in use to treat agitation — including ketamine — are the most effective. The study began last August. It requires no prior consent from patients, who can opt out.

      And it gets worse!

      At urging of Minneapolis police, Hennepin EMS workers subdued dozens with a powerful sedative

      EMS workers used date rape drug ketamine, stopping some suspects’ hearts or breathing.

      Minneapolis police officers have repeatedly requested over the past three years that Hennepin County medical responders sedate people using the powerful tranquilizer ketamine, at times over the protests of those being drugged, and in some cases when no apparent crime was committed, a city report shows.

      On multiple occasions, in the presence of police, Hennepin Healthcare EMS workers injected suspects of crimes and others who already appeared to be restrained, according to the report, and the ketamine caused heart or breathing failure, requiring them to be medically revived. Several people given ketamine had to be intubated.

      That is unconscionable! So as you can see, the situation is even worse than what I had already reported.

      Dr. Bramhall, thank you for your comment.

  2. Hi Shelby, please accept my humble thanks for your overwhelmingly flattering but very very kind compliments. But it looks like I became the conspirator by failing to include the link. I’ve since looked for that missing link and have discovered that you had already “liked” it. This time I am including said link before I dot another “I”, Bob Crachit. Here ’tis:
