Haven't watched the podcast yet, but reading the articles...

Is somebody controlling these people, FORCING them to behave this way? It doesn't make any ****ing sense otherwise.

[Edit: Yea, have listened now... agreed. It's a huge mess of ridiculousness that can't be allowed to continue if we're to remain the society america is supposed to be.]

Yes absolutely, and if they don't play the game, then they themselves go to prison for the crime they already committed, to be allowed into power. The same goes for Trump, the crimes he absolutely had to commit to rise to the top of the corrupt NYC real-estate market, will never come to light so long as he plays along.

Trump loves all this reality-show drama.

Drama. Drama. Drama... The more drama the better Trump loves his life. All drama and no real justice. So perfect for Trump.

I pray everyday that real justice happens and for a different kind of perfection - the kind only Mother Nature provides when it all hits the fan. Blood. ****. Tears.

Click's SHTF prayer to Mother Nature:

Please, oh wonderful Mother Nature, please, I implore You to bring down your Cosmic Curtains on The Washington ****Show. Send a platinum rock from outer space - one with Earth's name on it - and cause a mighty extirpation. With the rage of a god let the corpus delicti of the body politic be smitten with a coup de grace; and scatter the splintered and broken bones from sea to sea to mountain to valley to desert to the lovely wood so "dark and deep". Slaughter and then leave to rot the dam next to the fawn and the sire on top of the whelp.... Please do it "for the children"....

Speaking of children: I'd like to also thank you, Mother Nature - as I should more often - for allowing primitive man to progress from living in a cave (subject to brutal violence, eating uncooked food and grunting and barbaric yawp) to currently living in the modern world; where for hours on end "the children" and young men now live in a "man cave", instead of a real cave. Modern man now happily and voluntarily spends many, many hours sitting in front of a screen playing a cave man in a virtual reality; a place where he can do what cave men do, e.g., pull women's hair and molest vaginas, beat other people's brains out, call a ****** a ****** and all kinds of other fun stuff that mindless primitives do...

Yes, thank you, Mother Nature, for tens of thousands of years of natural selection; thank you for bringing mankind around full circle and properly preparing and training the modern youth with video games inside man caves on just how ****ihg zombie-life will be like for them when the lights go out and you evict them from their virtual caves back out into the real world...

Thank you Mother Nature for allowing the youth to arm themselves and practice killing and gutting their enemies and eating human liver. Thank you for allowing a virtual gold standard and a socioeconomic system based on bartering slaves and other living commodities. And I am especially delighted to see gaming bonus points awarded when IRS agents, members of Congress, judges and all other collectivist authority figures are hunted down and slowly tortured to death in a post Apocalyptic dream-world. Aren't video games wonderful? Yes, wonderful just like Mother Nature wants it to be...

Thanks again, Mother Nature, for preparing "the children" on how to properly live after you turn out the lights...

Amen

Flyanddive: Here never rose to the top there, that is just brand image and even as far as the Left believes he is some huge criminal...well I am sure of several things he is guilty of, but not to the degree they make out.

He is good at promoting the Trump brand nationally and internationally, but as far as the top of the real-estate market in the city, not so much. His specialty is licensing and 'helping' people move money around using his branding.

He didn't get to that position though by blatant illegality in the NY underworld, but by being an informant, a rat (as he calls them) to his friend Rudy, who then used Parallel Construction to go after mob guys. He was denied license to open businesses in AU because of this mafia tied in Atlantic City...what happened to all those guys?

...Once that revenue stream dried up, he fell on hard times, bankruptcy, etc so he switched to running the same game with the Russian and Ukranian mob. The questionable ways in which he has made his money, have generally been legal, though certainly unethical at times...because he still takes and 'helps' his business partners whoever they are, no matter how unsavory, with or without the FBI listening in.

The real question of Trump's 'crimes' is tax fraud, which I suspect why he didn't take the whole Trump Org public. The business model required understating income by extreme write-offs, overstating value (except come tax time, etc). The one IPO he did have...well, you can google it.

Anyway, this narrative that he was The Best, is laughable. He is the Best Salesman for sure, as he sold that narrative to the world, but in reality, Trump Org is one of many mid-level real estate businesses there.

**** off Amused. He doesn't owe anyone his tax returns. Not a qualification or pre-requisite for the job.

I never said he did owe them, in fact I did say that a lot of what the Left says about his supposed crimes are I suspect not true. It is a matter of public record that Australia denied him a gambling license because of Atlantic City Mafia ties, I was in-fact defending him against that narrative that Flyanddrive advanced about the degree of his criminality.

If anyone is entitled to his tax returns, it would only be because he promised to release them and like other promises reneged on that promise, not because of a fishing expedition.

Oh and for the record I never advocated for the 'fishing expedition'.

Any tax irregularities that he did have along with any other questionable business dealings that he did have, they were too stupid to catch and if not covered by the statute of limitations, I really don't think NYC or SDNY should bother with due to the now partisan division it would bring.

Go back and get my post any of them all of them to the beginning of time here.

I have never once advocated for the colonoscopy they have given him regarding his business affairs, despite my feelings about some of them.

When I and the rest of America can use Pelosi and Obama as a cum dumpster for all the lies they told about Obamacare then they can have Trump's tax returns under the same justification.

Tickerguy: I think that feeling is perfectly reasonable, they sold us FasicstCare, a multibillion-dollar hand out to the rent seeking medical and insurance rackets, which was even worse than if they had just setup a price controlled Socialist Single Payer system.

As far as I am concerned they can all burn in hell.

Any problems that the Left has with Trump and Trumpism, or the so-called Conservatives for that matter, is it's own creation. It was by failing for years to listen to the will of the people that they have turned to Populism on the Left and Right.

If I seem any more critical of Trump than anyone else, it is simply because he is here now, but I'm perfect willing to eat all the ones that brought us here after we feast on the ones currently occupying power, that includes the Executive or the Congress and all of the prior alumni of those offices.

Still not amused.

Single Payer is the end goal for the socialists like yourself.

Posting publicly and enforcing the Single Pricing is the solution.

I've never disagreed with Tickerguy's proposed solutions.

I am a Reformed Charismatic Libertarian.

I have never advocated for Single Payer, except to say that Federalism is the answer, we have these 50 laboratories of democracy, if some States want to setup a Single Payer system, if their People want to pay for it and do it, they have plenary power to do so and ought to give it a shot, if others want to have an entirely Free Market they should and still others should attack the Medical Cartels (which I've advocated for, when Gavin said he was going to go after the oil companies for ripping us off of pennies, but won't do anything about the the fraud in the medical system here I've complained).

I'd say it's high time Amused put up hard proof that Trump has broken any laws.. esp since he took office. Otherwise, IMO, you should be ban hammered to the other side of the moon for making those stupid ass accusations. Nearly every post you make claims Trump is a big criminal yet you offer no proof. IF he broke tax laws, the IRS would have had him in irons long ago.

I don't recall you saying one ****ing word about Obama when he was in office getting actual people murdered (Fast and Furious, droning a US citizen overseas, gun running out of Benghazi etc etc).

Note that everywhere this woman went, seems they had civil war. She is a CIA operative, not an ambassador. This is what has been F ed up about US policy for the past 70 years.

I believe she was sent in to keep the lid on corruption being discovered. SCHIFF IS AND HAS BEEN FOR NEARLY 3 YEARS, RUNNING A CRIMINAL COVERUP. There is a race to discredit Trump and Barr before a truckload of manure hits the airplane prop.

The conspiracy theories that the CIA and NSC run the US have gained a sense of legitimacy. It appears the last President and the last 2 Secretaries of State are up to their neck in trouble. Interestingly, they are the last 3 Democrats to carry the nomination of the Party. I believe they weren't nominated by accident, but by the Deep state. Most of us don't know come here from sic em about these people other than what is spoon fed to us through information channels. There is no denying the Bush CIA connection, or McCain, who was likely also involved in Ukraine corruption. Everybody we have seen on the stand is up to their neck in CIA/NSA. Do we have a government by the people, or a government by some people who dupe others into thinking they are making a selection. Interestingly, Trump isn't in the club. HEAVEN FORBID.

It sounds to me like you like star chamber trials Amused. Everything they have done with Trump is an investigation looking for a crime.

The list of people who have lied to Congress the past 3 years is a mile long. But, only people whose balls they were twisting to get to Trump are prosecuted. Hillary told enough lies for an entire state of people. Brennan and Clapper have lied repeatedly. We should disband the DOJ, if it is going to work this way. SCHIFF IS LYING DAILY TO CONGRESS AND THE WHOLE WORLD.

This seems a little disingenuous bearing in mind that Amused's incept date is 2019-04-22

It's not like there's a shortage of real objections to make to Amused's commentary, without resorting to this.
