Trump Will End Up Losing Florida 

Ax Handle Saturday the Day of Trump’s Florida Convention

Cristal M Clark

Last Month Trump decided to move his Republican nominating convention to Florida, the country’s highest-value swing state, from North Carolina and that move might end up costing him his beloved Florida. 

Why you might ask, well Trump can’t seem to bully Coronavirus into submission. Coronavirus cases are surging across Florida with wild abandon, making the move means that it will be painfully difficult for Trump to win Florida’s 29 electoral votes.  

And if Trump loses those votes, it would almost certainly guarantee his loss nationally.

Kim Nymeyer, president of the North Pinellas County Democratic Club: “If they move forward with that convention, with the numbers the way there are, people are just going to think they’re crazy. I do think Trump is taking the rope and hanging himself without any help from us.”

Good point Kim because with all eyes on Trump, I am fairly certain a lot of us around the US and world share in your opinion. 

But even Trump is showing signs of some fear: “When we signed a few weeks ago, it looked good. And now all of a sudden it’s spiking up a little bit and that’s going to go down. It really depends on the timing. We can do a lot of things, but we’re very flexible.”

Spiking up a “little bit?” I guess he pulled out his sharpie again because the numbers spiking in Florida, Texas, Arizona and California are spiking at an alarming rate, hardly a “little bit.”

One top Republican close to the White House acknowledged things could, indeed, go badly and wind up hurting Trump’s chances of winning the all-important state. That individual actually went just a wee bit further speaking the condition of anonymity: “Worst case? No one comes, it looks empty and there’s a bunch of protests, which becomes the big story in the middle of a pandemic.”

The Republican National Convention is currently planning to test every single one of the attendees daily for the 3 day convention for the coronavirus, but if cases are still surging in Florida, daily tests of Trump delegates and supporters would raise questions about why so many medical resources were being devoted to an unnecessary celebration.

But wait folks because there’s more. The choice of the day itself, um Aug. 27,  which is the anniversary of “Ax Handle Saturday,” the day in 1961 when Blacks conducting a lunch counter sit-in were brutally attacked by about 200 white people wielding ax handles and baseball bats.

Mike Binder, a University of North Florida political science professor recently conducted a poll with regards to the convention too. “It’s one of the lowlights of Jacksonville’s history, it’s hard to imagine this going well…. Nobody else had their hand up wanting this thing.” And that poll? Well it showed that Jacksonville residents, by a 58-42 margin, opposed having the convention there right now.

Russia Offered Bounties to Taliban For American Soldiers

U.S. President Donald Trump Claims Ignorance

Cristal M Clark 

First Trump goes on TV and informs the US that Biden will be our new President and now this? For a guy who claims to know everything about everything I guess Trump sat this one out. Reportedly, the Russian Military offered hard cold cash to the Taliban for murdering US Soldiers in Afghanistan. 

According to The New York Post United States officials learned months ago of a Russian intelligence unit secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for killing US and other coalition forces in Afghanistan, as peace talks to end the war continue. This is the part that seals the deal – American spies and commandos reportedly told their superiors about the plot as early as January, after discovering a Taliban outpost rife with none other than US hard, cold cash.

Trump is denying any knowledge however according to the New York Post which blackens the eye of Trump, American intelligence officials in fact told Trump about the findings in March and offered a number of options for reprimanding Russia, including escalating sanctions or issuing diplomatic complaints. Naturally Donald Trump did not choose to retaliate at all, instead ignoring what intelligence suggested was an unprecedented Russian attack on US troops and a significant escalation of the country’s support for the Taliban.

I wonder if the Putin/Trump bromance ever really did cool off? Rather than do anything trump got down on his knees and gave Russia quite literally, a blow job. 

20 Americans were killed in Afghanistan in 2019 and 4 others were killed in early 2020, though the Taliban has not attacked any American bases since February. It’s unclear which killings may be connected to the Russian plot or whether any bounties were actually paid.

Trump’s illusion of a winning streak seems to be fading.

White House Officials Defend Trump – Only to Fuck That Up

Trump The President of Freedoms, The Right to Choose?

Cristal M Clark 

So this morning I was watching the news when I saw a White House Official get up on live TV and try to sell the news anchors on the idea that Trump is the president of Freedoms, the right to choose when he was pressed about Trump not forcing anyone attending one of his rallies to wear facemasks. 

The comment was that he is the president of freedoms, our right to choose and if you buy that irresponsible diatribe you are just as dumb as he and his White House Officials. First of all, he is not supporting your freedoms or right to choose, he took that away the second he has anyone sign a waiver who buys a ticket to a rally agreeing not to sue should the individual get Coronavirus whilst attending his trailer park rallies. Second, what about the freedoms of those that do not want the virus? Allow me to remind everyone, wearing a mask protects you from me should I be carrying the virus, not me from anyone carrying the virus. These rally goers go home and infect a community who didn’t choose, what about their right to choose, their freedom? 

The problem with the arguments of those that defend Trump’s sickening, heartless and irresponsible behavior is that there is no excuse to endanger willfully and woefully, endanger the lives of those that attend his rallies or anyone potentially infected by those that attend his rallies. It’s pure selfish behavior and and ladies and gentlemen, rather than border walls, tariffs and any other broken promises, Trump is going to feed his hard core supporters the idea that selfish behavior is acceptable this election, no matter what even if it kills people, selfish behavior is acceptable. 

For that alone, Trump should be jailed, he is willingly endangering the lives of thousands if not more through his selfish, uneducated, outlandish behavior. This past weekend I took to the Denver Metro area asking those that were out about this November, not surprisingly, many of those that wanted to vote for Trump simply because they truly believe he can help the United States pull out of the the recession are now considering other options, the reason being is simply his behavior towards the virus and the systemic racism, police brutality and our criminal justice system that favors the wealthy and the white over the poor, black and brown. It is his behavior and honestly I agree, his behavior is outlandish, and it will come with deadly consequences. 

Standing for our freedom, our right to choose? I don’t attend Trump rallies currently, I don’t choose to be standing near someone who did and who followed the shining example of our shellfish, inept president and who now has the virus. What idiot in the White House dreamed that bullshit defense up? 

Again, rally goers actually lose rights by attending a Trump Rally and they endanger the rest of us so what about my right to not be exposed to the virus? I help take care of a 97 year old and so far Grandpa is doing quite well living at home during the pandemic, what about his rights, his freedom to not be exposed to a virus that could potentially and most likely would kill him? No? Why because he’s 97? You don’t think he has anything to contribute to society? He was one of Denver’s very first uniformed officers, he also held a seat in our City decades ago. He has a memory and a lot to contribute still. 

Now let’s get to the argument that if people are afraid they should stay home, again that is taking away their rights and freedoms, now isn’t it?  How inhumane and selfish to tell people if you are afraid to catch the virus because some in our society refuse to wear a mask, practice social distancing and feel that their rights come before yours or mine that you should stay home. Is that not what Trump, his rally goers, his White House are saying because that is precisely what I hear over and over again and quite frankly and very honestly, it highlights very brightly just how divided our nation is. We are being led by a man who is mentally ill, anyone and everyone watching him, seeing his tweets, knows that, and we all know that his mental illness is not getting better it is in fact getting worse. 

I heard a rumor last week that those close to Trump think he is just giving up, I don’t believe that, I think that he is simply too naive to see the White House and those closest to him are in fact setting him up to fail. It’s never been more clear when they go about telling the world that he is the President who defends our freedoms, our rights to choose when it will endanger others who are innocent, or when he forces rally goers to sign waivers. No, someone is advising him to make these fatal moves and decisions. 

I also happen to know that Trump sees himself like a king and if I were Trump, I’d start reading up on the fate that befell some of the worlds greatest kings and start looking at who is advising him and who he holds near and dear. 

Don’t forget, GenZ is rising and fast, some of us have been fighting for decades for the same things GenZ is now so vocal about, put our numbers with theirs and if Trump can’t change and fast, we outnumber his voters in the last election by at least 3 times if not more and quite frankly we are telling you Donald J Trump to grow the fuck up!

US Federal Bureau of Investigation – gets sued


Freedom of Information Act

Bring on the lawsuits

Last week it was announced that a prominent LA lawyer was suing the FBI seeking information on the warrant that led to its seizure of Anthony Weiner’s computer in the Hillary Clinton email case.

The famed lawyer happens to be L.A. based E. Randol Schoenberg, a former president of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, who was able to successfully reclaim Jewish owned art that was looted by the Nazis.

His interest in the case came about due to the timing of the announcement of the warrant, which happened to be just days away from the election.

Randol seems to think that maybe the FBI did not have probable cause and more importantly that, he suspects that someone working for Donald Trump may have provided a false lead to the FBI.

That accusation in and of itself is pretty serious.

On the other side of the fence we have Vice who announced today that they were suing the FBI for details into Trump, the Clintons and of course Breibart News.

Vice wants to learn more about the FBI’s disclosures, those bothersome behind the scenes deals and of the actions that they took throughout the Clinton email investigations, and those rather pesky leaks that came days before the election.

Vice would like for the FBI to release or be forced to release details that might help to clear up the FBI’s crucial role as well as the role of other agencies in what might possibly go down as one of the most controversial presidential elections in US history.

Some of what the Vice FOIA lawsuit is looking for the FBI to disclose seems to be pretty specific and straight forward:

The possibility of the FBI violating the Hatch Act by allegedly using its authority to influence the course of a Presidential election

Information about those leaks by the FBI to the media and political operatives with regards to FBI investigations of Hillary

Any and all itel pertaining to the FBI’s communications with Breibart news and it’s chairman Steve Bannon, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Fox News and it’s hosts Bret Baier and Sean Hannity, former NYC mayor and adviser to Trump, Rudy Giuliani and Republican strategist and Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone.

White nationalist Richard Spencer and his National Policy Institute and the so called “alt-right”

And finally, Vice would really like to know more about the FBI’s alleged internal discontent with regards to how the bureau handled the Hillary Clinton Investigations.

Judicial Watch did already start a lawsuit back in October seeking Videos of Depositions in Hillary Clinton Email Case.

Others are lining up to have FBI Director James Comey and the FBI investigated and sued. So this list, it’s might just grow.


While it’s highly frowned upon, Director James Comey may have been influenced to handle things the way he did by others. Others that are higher up in the food chain than he is. 

He may also have had bad intel to work with too.

In the end the question really becomes:

Will the lawsuits prove fruitful or will they simply leave more questions than answers on the table?

President Obama, employes individuals that work at the pleasure of the president.

President Elect Donald Trump will have individuals working for him, that also work for the pleasure of the president.

The issues that we face are, one leader is leaving the oval office and so is his team while another stepping into the oval office, bringing his own team on board and both have differing agendas.

While some truths may come to light, others may never be known to anyone outside of certain circles regardless of who gets sued, particularly when one is suing the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.
