Logic & Datapoints: The Nitty Gritty Of Bechard / Broidy / Trump

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I keep trying to put this imbroglio in the back of my mind and actually, like, be productive, but every time I try to do that, the enormous logic of Trump being Bechard’s babydaddy brings it back to the forefront of my mind again.

Let’s get down to the cold hard facts and logic of what’s going on.

What We Know
We know Bechard had an affair with someone between late 2015 and late 2017.
We know that Trump’s schedule and Bechard’s Instagram placed him in proximity (NYC) to Bechard in the mid-to-late September 2017 timeframe.
We know a child was conceived around mid-to-late September of 2017 and later aborted.
We know Trump has, at least once, “raw dogged” with a woman he was having and affair with (Stormy Daniels.)
We have photographic evidence on Instagram that Bechard was at least outward ok with being pregnant at some point.
We know Bechard at one point had a dog named Ellie.
We know Bechard at some point was referred to Keith Davidson.
— Davidson was the lawyer who represented two other women who signed NDAs with Trump.
We know Broidy used Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer and fixer to represent him.
We know Bechard got $1.6 million (hardly Stormy Daniels’ ‘nuisance” money.)
We know Broidy was actively seeking access to the Trump Adminstration about this time in the guise of various Arab states.
We know that the day after the first installment of the $1.6 million to Bechard, Broidy gained access to Trump directly.
We know Bechard is interested in the #MeToo movement.

What We Don’t Know.
Anything to do with Trump directly being connected to Bechard other than Cohen and Davidson.
Anything to do with Broidy being directly connected to Bechard other than the NDA, Davidson and Cohen.
Anything in cold hard fact terms about Bechard’s exact state of mind at the time of the abortion.
— Was there a direct quid pro quo?
Anything about how many Playboy Bunnies (Playboy itself?) knew anything about an affair with either Broidy or Trump.

In fact, we have no evidence that Broidy even knows Bechard other than the things directly connected to the NDA.

Outstanding questions:
How come $1.6 million from Broidy of all people? He’s a rando. Why would he give a shit. Or why would he give $1.6 million worth of shit.
How could Donald J. Trump bang Bechard while also running for president and being in the Oval Office.
How could all of this be kept secret if Trump was the babydaddy? Is that proof that it didn’t happen?
How did the WSJ learn of the affair? Why did Bechard’s name only come out later in the day once the story broke?

Existential Questions
Why no comment from Peter K. Stris, Bechard’s lawyer?
Why no comment from Cooper Hefner?
Will it even matter if we prove it was Trump? Is there nothing that will ever hurt him politically, especially on the character side. He would not have done anything illegal and he can just keep babbling about the “Criminal Deep State” and “Spygate” while liberals burst into flames over the hypocrisy of a otherwise “pro-life” president.

‘Broidy’s Baby’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Smooth Dance Pop Track

Now that I’ve run out of angles when it comes to the Trump — Broidy — Bechard imbroglio, I am going to see if I can write the lyrics to a few songs. As I have said, I just like the purity of writing lyrics. This is just me screwing around. But this would be a really smooth, dance track, like something Groove Armada might produce.

Broidy’s Baby
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

he’s not a fool
he’s my man at least that’s the plan
keeps me content with his scratch
may be plump but he’s no lout
I’m proud to say at least for now
I’m

Broidy’s baby (x6)

he’s got a woman
so I’m his sidepiece
at least that’s what we’ll tell the press
and police
should the news break of the facts
it will be a trump to all the haters
who love to bring me down
I’m no clown that’s a fact
I’m a class act
because I’m

Broidy’s baby (x6)

[bridge]
don’t you worry
our love will never die
as long as the cash
keeps flowing by my side

we’re all fools for love
undercover in the night
waiting for the fright to pass
the facts will never see daylight
as long as my NDA is air tight

‘Criminal Deep State’ — #Lyrics To Woke R&B Song

Guys, the president is insane. But he does have a way with a turn of phrase. So, in honor of this on-going political horror movie we’re all forced to watch, here are my ham-handed effort at trying to tell a story in verse. The beat to this would like something you might find with The Weeknd. At least, that’s my vision for this.

Criminal Deep State
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

you leave me with my head in my hands
sitting on the side of my bed
wondering about this deep state I’m in
was it all a dream
all that living in sin
it’s criminal what you did to me
fucking with my head again and again

it’s a criminal deep state
out to get me
it’s a criminal deep state
spies all around
spies all around
spies all around

when you told me you loved me
did you have to rub the pain in
with salt from your tears
the state of mind you’ve left me in
fills me with dread
I know I could have done better
but once you left me light as a feather

it’s a criminal deep state
out to get me
it’s a criminal deep state
spies all around
spies all around
spies all around

[bridge]
but you’re gone now
at least I think
sometimes I think I see you
but it’s just the criminal deep state
you left me in

I hope it’s all a dream
the birds I hear tweeting to me
I don’t know when it will end
this nightmare you’ve left me in
but all I know it’s criminal
the state you’ve left me in

it’s a criminal deep state
out to get me
it’s a criminal deep state
spies all around
spies all around
spies all around

‘Demand’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Pop Country Song

I’m just screwing around. This would be a slow country pop song that you could clearly hear the lyrics. It’d be smooth and relaxing but have a “woke” edge to it. I’m using Trump’s “I hereby demand” tweet as the chorus.

Demand
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

we’re all in on edge
wondering what will happen next
will the cops know on the White House door
so you tweet all day long making demands
they make me want to shout

I hereby demand you shut up
I hereby demand you stay quiet you lout
I hereby demand
I hereby demand

there’s so little to say at this point
you’re still in control
on a roll of pain and suffering
making us all scratch our heads in doubt
when will you leave the Oval Office
that’s what we all want to know
and that’s a fact

I hereby demand you shut up
I hereby demand you stay quiet you lout
I hereby demand
I hereby demand

[bridge]
will anyone take notice
when you rub our nose in it
what’s to be done I worry
will your demands be met?

there’s nothing much more to say
your base will always love you
no matter how nuts you are
wish I could roar a little bit louder

I hereby demand you shut up
I hereby demand you stay quiet you lout
I hereby demand
I hereby demand

Tentative Evidence Of A Trump — Shera Bechard Affair #Resist #MeToo

Editor’s Note: While the logic of it being Trump and not Broidy holds up, new evidence has come to light that I’m not able to disclose that makes at least more likely that it was Broidy after all. But as I keep saying, the SDNY may have the proof one way or another.

By Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

New York Magazine recently came out with an article that proposed the theory that it was not Republican mega contributor Elliot Broidy who had an affair with Playboy Bunny Shera Bechard, but rather President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

This is significant because if it was, indeed Trump, the affair would have occurred at some point between 2015 and 2017 when Trump was running for president and actually in office as well. A friend of mine who is really good into snooping into social media has found extremely tentative, extremely circumstantial evidence that if does not prove the affair at least provides some evidence that it was at least possible.

Now, the above doesn’t prove anything at all. But it is interesting that she was having fun at a Trump property pool in NYC, while her alleged lover Broidy is a long-time resident of LA.

The only reason why any of this matters is the internal logic of her affair with Broidy is nowhere near as strong as that of her having an affair with Trump. Broidy has all the makings of a proxy fall guy for a significantly more powerful and wealthy individual who didn’t want a messy end of an affair to harm his political career. Add to this that Broidy would use Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen and things are very curious indeed. Here is a bit more circumstantial evidence. Again let me stress that this could mean anything, but it is weird.

Next up we have some evidence that if nothing else Trump and Bechard were within proximity of each other at some point about the time of when they were supposed to be having an affair. This could mean nothing, it could mean everything.

Now we enter even murkier waters. That of her state of mind at the time she was to have an abortion. This is where things are the most barely holding on to what might be real, and yet if you hold that it was Trump not Broidy then this is definitely interesting if nothing else.

Then the following happens. Things change. She becomes interested in the MeToo movement. What does this mean? Anything? Nothing? Don’t know.

Finally, we have this situation. This is interesting, but we’re really grasping at straws unless something happens that gives us a lot more information.

Trump has long been compared to former Italian Prime Minster Silvio Berlusconi. Berlusconi was impossible to bring down until he wasn’t. He would have been in power forever until he was connected to an underage prostitution ring. The thing about Trump is, as it stands, Trump is a king. As Benjamin Wittes has quipped, Trump is “malevolence only mitigated by incompetence.”

There has been a lot of talk about what could possibly bring down Trump. People keep telling The Resistance to talk about policy instead of Trump’s many scandals. But there comes a point when the scandals get so grievous — like in the instance of Berlusconi — when they finally break the back of his support.

So, right now, the only thing I can think of that come anywhere close to bringing down Trump would be proving he, not Elliot Broidy, had an affair with former Playboy Playmate Shera Bechard. The thing that really bugs me about the New York Magazine piece about the theory that this is the case, is it didn’t really either get into the details of how this might have been the case nor tell us what the political implications would be.

But if we could prove it was Trump and not Broidy then we would have a scandal so devastating that I’d like to think it would give the most oblivious, hardened deplorable pause for thought. Because once you prove Trump had the affair, then what we know of what happened to Bechard becomes significant indeed.

Apparently she had the affair sometime between late 2015 and late 2017. It ended with her having an abortion and getting a $1.6 million payoff from Broidy through Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen. So, Trump would be implicated in not only an affair and a payoff like with Stormy Daniels, but an abortion as well. And there is at lest extremely circumstantial evidence that whatever happened with the affair left Bechard with an interest in the #MeToo movement. So, it’s at last possible that she felt pressured or coerced into having the abortion in exchange for the $1.6 million.

Now, it’s highly unlikely that we’ll ever know one way or another. But it is telling that the SDNY did raid Cohen’s office and as such might have acquired proof one way or another of what really happened between Trump, Bechard and Broidy.

The really interesting thing is that logic tells us it was Trump, we just don’t know enough of the logistics to figure out how Trump could have possibly have pulled off an affair with Bechard while he was in office. The level of secrecy required to pull of the affair is difficult to comprehend.

But I don’t know. I want to believe that the deporables might care if if Trump pressured a woman into having an abortion, but they’ve invested so much into the long con that is Trump that there’s a good chance that even that wouldn’t phase them. And given that Trump has no shame, will never resign and has immunity by way of a Republican majority in Congress, it seems Trump may have achieved a level of power that even Berlusconi would be envious.

‘Shithole Country’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Hip-Hop – R&B Song

These lyrics are supposed to be kind of a murky mixture of Prince’s Sign O’ The Times and a Public Enemy song. No one cares what I write, so I’m just doing this for fun, though I am kind of pissed off.

Shithole Country
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

the black man works with a broken back
trying the best he can
but just walking the streets is a danger
especially when the president is a racist fool
so let me tell you about a shithole country
at least for me
the one I have to deal with
as long as Trump’s name is in the land

shithole country
land of the free
shithole country
the one I live with in
as long as Trump is POTUS
shithole country

why can’t we all just get along
why does POTUS have to divide us along lines
the lines found on our face

what a disgrace
what a disgrace
what a disgrace

shithole country
land of the free
shithole country
the one I live with in
as long as Trump is POTUS
shithole country

[bridge]
we still have hope
maybe we’ll awake
and find that this was all a dream
but I’m afraid
the answer is nope, nope, nope

but we’re going to have to fight
fight for our freedom again
we’re going to have to unite
unite this shithole country

unite
unite
unite
unite

‘Canal Street’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Song

This is just me screwing around. Just have a concept and a story to tell in verse. I just came back from New York City and was hanging around Canal Street.

Canal Street
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

walking the street
you never know who you’ll meet
sometimes people are lost
ask meekly for the place
where they’re supposed to meet

we’re all from somewhere else
on Canal Street
we’re all looking for our fate
on Canal Street

the Chinese touts know what it’s all about
they’ve got watches without a doubt
ones for sale that never fail
just don’t get them wet
or at least that’s what they say

tourists bump against each other
looking for their ride home
they hope they don’t get lost
before the bus sets off
they don’t want to be left alone

we’re all from somewhere else
on Canal Street
we’re all looking for our fate
on Canal Street

[bridge]
there’s an excitement that can’t be forgotten
the hustle and bustle of the crowd
can leave you a little stressed out

we’re just a number I’m afraid
stars on the street
hoping to make ends meet
we’re all fleet footed
until the sun sets in the distance
of Canal Street

‘Blue Wave’ — Lyrics To EDM-Pop-Anthem Rock Song For The Resistance in 2018

I am just fooling around right now, but it seems as though it would be fun to have a Katy Perry-type song that was a “woke pop” anthem for the 2018 mid-term elections. I am listening to Dark Horse as I write these lyrics, so that’s pretty much the vibe I’m looking for. But as I keep saying, I’m just venting against Trumplandia in verse. No one cares about any of these lyrics.

Blue Wave
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

we will
darken the sun
when the blue wave
reaches the shore
the people demand answers
we will come crashing
down soon enough
once the polls close
the results will show
that the blue wave is real
forces of dispair will vanish
we will be free again
we will be free again

[chorus]
the waters are warm and powerful
when they strike the shore
they will flip houses
things will change
things will be better
maybe we’ll float away
like a dream
once the blue wave arrives
once the blue wave arrives

we’ve got our receipts
we’ve got what we need
to make our claim
the power of the blue wave is strong
it will knock down ignorance
shape the world in a new imagine
one free from ignorance
this is our moment
this is our time
the blue wave is real

[chorus]
the waters are warm and powerful
when they strike the shore
they will flip houses
things will change
things will be better
maybe we’ll float away
like a dream
once the blue wave arrives
once the blue wave arrives

[Verse 3 (rapped)]
so watch out ’cause that roar you hear
is the blue wave coming near
it’s going to crash
crash into your mind
shake up everything you believe
you can lock the door
but if you’re ignorant
you better flee instead
’cause this blue wave won’t spare you
we’ve come to change the world
bring a new age to it all

[chorus]
the waters are warm and powerful
when they strike the shore
they will flip houses
things will change
things will be better
maybe we’ll float away
like a dream
once the blue wave arrives
once the blue wave arrives
