V-Log: Some Context For Trump & Stormy Daniels #Resist

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

This video gives some historical context to what’s going on with Trump and Stormy Daniels. It also talks about how if John Bolton becomes National Security Adviser, we’re all fucked. All things being equal, if Bolton becomes National Security Adviser, that’s a huge signal from Trump of what direction he’s going to go with both the DPRK and Iran.

Of Stormy Daniels, Donald Trump & The Historic Hypocrisy Of The Right

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

The thing that really bothers me about Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels is how hypocritical the Right is. I’m old enough to remember how the Right went on a fishing expedition to find wrong doing on the part of Bill Clinton 20 years ago.

It’s really weird how the old expressions, “first time tragedy, second time farce” and “history doesn’t repeat, but it does rhyme” are so true right now. We’re entering a traditional presidential sex scandal in extraordinary times so much so that anything could happen. I just don’t know what the endgame of all of this will be. Trump may find himself bloody but unbowed by the time it’s all over with — especially if he starts a war with the DPRK — or something much darker could happen.

(This video stops abruptly, but is pretty good.)

If you may recall, here’s what happened with Bill Clinton 20 years ago: Lucianne Goldberg, Linda Tripp and Matt Drudge concocted a plot to bring down President Clinton because Tripp had recordings of Monica Lewinsky who at the time at least was something of a flibbertigibbet.

I’m not saying there’s a conspiracy against Donald Trump at this point to bring him down using Stormy Daniels, but I would suggest that “dark forces” have aligned against him, given that Daniels waited so long to come forward. I would suggest that Trump has finally pissed off the wrong people and they see — just like Goldberg, Tripp and Drudge 20 years ago — sex as the perfect weapon to bring down Trump.

But we’ll see. As I have mentioned before, if Trump starts a war with the DPRK, all of this will go down the memory hole and none of it will matter anymore. Only time will tell.

The Coming Korean Nightmare #Resist

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I’m still of the opinion that we’re on track for a war with the DPRK by August 2018. I believe one of two things will happen if and when Donald Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jung Un: either Trump gives the DPRK everything they want unilaterally and we’re all left aghast at how crazy it all is, or the whole thing is a complete disaster and we lurch towards a needless war the likes of which we’ve not seen since World War I.

I have no inside knowledge, so I don’t know which one it will be. That, in itself makes me nervous. It makes far more sense that Trump would storm out of a meeting with Kim as opposed to hug him. Keep an eye on John Bolton. If John Bolton becomes National Security Adviser, then we’re going to war.

We’re going to war because Trump needs a “big reboot” desperately. He needs a 9/11 size event so Stormy Daniels and any number of other scandals fall into the memory hole. And, remember, if Trump starts a war in August, it will likely be wrapped up by Veterans Day and that will make his fucking parade evening bigger and more popular.

I only say any of this because it just makes too much strategic sense. I’m not suggesting a conspiracy, I’m just saying if you’re Donald Trump — and lack of basic human empathy — and you finally feel comfortable with traditional statecraft, it makes a lot of sense to “wag the dog” in a pretty epic manner.

And Trump is going to get away with it. We’re going to wake up in 2025 and see President Tom Cotton being sworn in. There really isn’t much we can do about it, sad to say.

Tipping Point: Dark Forces Are Aligning Against Trump & Using Stormy Daniels

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I am just the right age to remember what was going on 20 years ago with then President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. There came a point, a tipping point, when the scandal took on a life of its own and it just blew up far faster than anyone could have possibly have imagined.

I feel as though we’re lurching towards a similar tipping point with Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels. I say this only because this scandal isn’t going away, at least for the time being. I think some of it is how simple this scandal is, how traditional it is — it’s a presidential sex scandal.

As such, the mouth breathers out there who don’t care or understand TrumpRussia, are able to wrap their dumb minds around it in a way they can’t with the rest of the dumpster fire that is the Trump Administration. Something feels different about the Stormy Daniels mess. It seems as though dark forces have aligned to bring down the Trump Administration in a way none of us could have possibly expected.

That’s thing thing about what happened to Bill Clinton. The whole thing really was a witch hunt because a small group of people had a personal hatred of him. Linda Tripp, the Goldberg family and Matt Drudge used Monica Lewinsky to put Bill Clinton in a logic trap, one that nearly cost him his presidency. I’m suggesting that it’s possible, not probably, that a similar situation is afoot. It’s possible that some very powerful people have finally grown fed up with Trump and they believe they’ve figured out how to get rid of him: a traditional sex scandal.

But I have no inside information, it’s just a hunch. So only time will tell. I will suggest, however, that if you combine Stormy Daniels with Bob Mueller’s TrumpRussia investigation the Trump Administration is facing an existential threat in a way none of us could have expected.

Only time will tell, I guess.

‘Trumplandia’ — #Lyrics To A Fast Pop-Rap Anti-Trump Protest Song

I may have used this as a song title before, but I have come up with a new way of using it, so there you go. This would be a really fast song like “We Didn’t Start The Fire” and “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine.) That’s the vision, at least.

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

it started with Russian bots
telling us what to do
playing with our heads late at night
giving us a fright
then the comedy letter ended Hillary’s gaul
she had to take the fall, take the fall

before you know it
we wake up and it’s Trumplandia
Trump is in control
the chaos rolls in like the tide
and people are eating Tidepods for a like
so much has happened where to begin, to begin, to begin

don’t mess with the Mooch
he’ll just screw the pooch
people at the airport in support
of immigrants
Trump passes tax cuts in order to loot
the treasury
dear me, dear me, dear me

we wake up and it’s Trumplandia
we wake up and it’s Trumplandia
we wake up and it’s Trumplandia

we’re all in Trumplandia now
when will it end? when will it end?
will Stormy Daniels bring us respite
from the hell that lasts all day and all night

[bridge]
just hope it’s over soon
hope it ends with Trump behind bars
or at least a zoo
what can you do, what can you do

each day brings with it a new scandal I’m afraid
people tell me to shut up and just get laid
we’ll they can suck it as far as I care
this fight ain’t over, don’t you fear

we wake up and it’s Trumplandia
we wake up and it’s Trumplandia
we wake up and it’s Trumplandia

‘Eyeache’ — Lyrics To A R&B Love Ballad

I can’t sleep — it’s too early to go to sleep anyway — so I’m relaxing by writing song lyrics to songs that will never, ever be performed. I just liked telling stories in verse, so you get this. This would be a dark, funky R&B song in my imagination.

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

you catch my eye every time we meet
I think of the ways I’d please you
given half a chance
but you just smile and walk away from me
leaving to my cross thoughts
of how everything is for not

your beauty makes my eyes ache, eyes ache
you break my heart
you break my heart
leaving me with eye ache, eye ache

my eyeache is real
wish you would give me the thrill
of allowing me to give you a twirl
but there’s little for me to say
maybe, baby, you’ll come my way

we should live a little I believe
let me have you believe
that things will get better with you in my arms
leave all those troubles behind

your beauty makes my eyes ache, eyes ache
you break my heart
you break my heart
leaving me with eye ache, eye ache

[bridge]
you’re just my type
one to give me delight
wish you would listen real close
let me hold you tight

but now it’s never going to happen
you’re leaving town for good
taking your man with you
at least, that’s what’s understood

your beauty makes my eyes ache, eyes ache
you break my heart
you break my heart
leaving me with eye ache, eye ache

V-Log: Will The Stormy Daniels’ Storm Bring Down Trump? #Resist

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I am just right age to remember how 20 years ago conservatives told me with full-throated vigor how “character counts.” Now, of course, they’re oddly silent on this whole matter. I just don’t get it. I really don’t. The hypocrisy on the Right on this matter is pretty epic.

The Final Days? More #MAGA, Stormy Daniels & The #DPRK

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I don’t know. I just don’t know. I want to say we’re in the Final Days of the Trump Administration, but, alas, I fear that simply is not the case. I fear we’re going to have to suffer for a lot longer than any of us ever imagined. But the below video is interesting.

It Might Be Stormy Daniels, Not #TrumpRussia, That Brings Trump Down

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

The only reason why I think it may be the growing Stormy Daniels scandal, not TrumpRussa that finally break the back of our American Caligula’s administration is sex is significantly more easy to explain to the mouth breathers who support Trump than the TrumpRussia imbroglio.

Sex is universal and easy to understand.

Now, the typical Trump supporter simply bobs and weaves when it comes to Stormy Daniels and says the whole thing was consensual and I should just shut up and enjoy the humming economy. But it’s proven that Trump violated campaign finance law, then we enter a pretty crucial point in time. The entire Trump long-con will be laid bare and the whole thing could come crashing down — or Trump supporters won’t care and we’ll have an extended Constitutional crisis on our hands.

If we finally reach the point where the president can break laws with impunity simply because the nation finally lacks the political willpower to do anything about it, then America as we know it is over. We will finally have become a fascist state.

I wish there was some easy answer to it all, but there isn’t. Trump has paved the way for us as a nation to finally shrug at proven law breaking. As such, it’s possible that if Trump is proven to have broken campaign finance law and nothing happens, well, that’s all she wrote. Trump will feel emboldened to do whatever he wants to.

Trump Would Be An Idiot To Meet Kim Jung Un In Asia

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I’m willing to give Trump measured praise for managing to get Kim Jung Un to meet him, but I feel the whole thing could blow up in Trump’s face pretty quickly. By agreeing to meet Kim somewhere presumably on the Korean peninsula Trump is giving Kim exactly what he wants: respect on the global stage

Add to this the likelihood that Trump is completely clueless about the unintended consequences of his actions, and you the setup to a bad international relations joke. I have said many times before that during my in Korea, I noticed that problems were solved in one of two ways: either something really strange happens or there’s a fistfight.

Anyway, I still believe this isn’t over yet. I still predict it’s possible that a war would start between the US and the DPRK sometime in August. But we’ll see, I guess.
