Last week Donald Trump told the European Union to go fuck itself, and decided to bounce out of what is known as the Paris Climate Agreement.
Cool bro, real cool.
Well the EU is firing back, and since the president only apparently speaks for himself, they have extended an invitation to continue working with the United States to improve the climate. Except they are trying to remove the president from the picture, and go directly to the states, announcing that they want to work with governors and corporations. Continue reading “Paris…”→
The more I practice mindfulness, the more I begin to recognize the irrationality of so many people, in particular as it comes to politics. This isn’t to say that I’m not prone to my own irrational behavior. I’m pretty sure that I engage in it almost everyday.
However, practicing mindfulness is almost like being a mutant learning a superpower at the Xavier Institute. I say this because mindfulness lets you objectively look at your behavior, the behavior of others, and if you are really good stop yourself from doing dumb shit.
But most people I encounter are not mindful nor have the interest to become so. Which sometimes is frustrating to see. In particular, when it comes to Trump, and how dishonest they are willing to be to justify their support of him as president. Continue reading “Trump has become religion”→
Asshole Nigel Farage, and candidate for most ridiculous facial expressions, is now considered a person of interest in the Trump/ Russia investigation. For those not in the loop Farage was a key player in orchestrating the Brexit movement in Britain.
The event was basically a decision by the citizens of that country to exit the European Union, and is seen as one of the biggest populist victories of the past two years. That event along with several others that happened in Europe were what initially lead me to believe that Trump would beat Hillary Clinton. Other events include the rise in popularity by Gert Wilders and Marine Le Pen in their countries respective politics. Thankfully neither one of those assholes won their elections.

My brother recently returned from his trip to Europe, it was a two-week vacation. Within that time the news cycle has been moving so fast that he is seemingly out of the loop. Hell, I stopped paying attention to the news over Memorial Day weekend and I feel like I lost track of what is going on.
Update: Literally within the time it took to write, edit, find photos for, and post this blog article Donald Trump has since tweeted to confirm that the allegations are true. I plan on leaving this post on the website to highlight just how strange, bizarre and erratic his behavior is. It also just goes to show that I literally cannot keep up with what this man is doing as the president. This article will remain to serve as a reminder of my thinking during his presidency.
So the Washington Post apparently broke the story that Donald Trump revealed classified information to the Sergeys. Sergey Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister, and Sergey Kisylak, Russian Ambassador to the United States of America.
Love him or hate him I hope that we can all agree that firing James Comey was a stupid decision. Donald Trump and his administration is under investigation for its alleged ties to the Russian government, and possibly playing a role in hacking the DNC and losing the election for Hillary Clinton. Comey and his FBI were the ones responsible for investigating the possible connection, and raising a red flag that maybe not everything was kosher in the White House.
Whether any of that is true or not can’t really be known, but with the likes of Carter Page, Jeff Sessions, Michael Flynn, Erik Prince (Betsy DeVos’ brother), Corey Lewandowski, Jared Kushner, and Rex Tillerson all having some sort of possible connection to the Russian government.
Add to the fact, that Trump has continually tried to discredit these accusations, and that the House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) kind of/sort of got caught being a bad actor and trying to help with this. His son Eric Trump has even reportedly said in a past interview that they receive financial backing from Russian banks. Firing Comey only adds to the suspicion that Donald Trump and his White House is guilty. Continue reading “James Comey was fired! WTF!!!”→
Apparently, the new executive order signed by Donald Trump doesn’t go far enough for religious groups. For me personally I think it went too far, but then again just about everything this president has done has been morally repugnant on so many levels, and hideously transparent on just who stands to benefit.
