We do not need POTUS 45 in office

By John Kanelis / johnkanelis_92@hotmail.com

I have believed this for some time, but it needs to be said anyway.

U.S. Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Amarillo, is out of his fu**ing mind! He is nuts. Bonkers, Loony. Certifiably nuts.

He pushed out a Twitter note this morning in which he said that the 45th president of the U.S. of A. “needs to return to the White House.”

Umm. No. He doesn’t. He needs to be committed, sent away, banished from the halls of power.

POTUS 45 is an existential threat to the government of the country he once led. He is a liar, an insurrectionist, a seditionist, a morally bankrupt con man.

But he’s got his friends in Congress. One of them is Rep. Jackson, who now represents the congressional district where I once lived.

These idiots deserve each other.

If POTUS 45 runs in ’24, then he proves his insanity

By John Kanelis / johnkanelis_92@hotmail.com

I have climbed way out on the limb and suggested that the 45th POTUS wouldn’t dare run for the presidency in 2024.

The former Numbskull in Chief is sending signals that he intends to perform the insane act of running … again!

I shouldn’t have returned ever so briefly to the world of political predicting. Or so you might presume. Except that I am not yet convinced he is going to commit to another presidential campaign.

The imbecile is facing potential criminal indictments. His company already is under indictment. There might be more to come. Indeed, I think there will be more to come. He is in debt up to his ample keister.

But … this is a period of political insanity, I suppose.

The clown show never ends.

POTUS 45 won’t run!

By John Kanelis / johnkanelis_92@hotmail.com

Allow me to venture way out on a limb that I realize could break and send me tumbling into some form of rhetorical heap … which has happened to me before.

It is that the man who preceded President Biden until January of this year isn’t going to seek the presidency again in 2024.

The one-time Numbskull in Chief is dropping hints that he has made his mind about the 2024 campaign. He told his boy, Fox News blowhard Sean Hannity, that he has made the final call. Then he proceeded to say some things about President Biden that suggest a run for the White House is in the works.

How can I say this? OK, here goes: No one with a criminal indictment hanging over his head — not even this clown — would want to expose himself to the prying eyes of every political foe out there.

The ex-Dipsh** in Chief’s company has been indicted by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office on tax charges. Fifteen of them, to be exact. The Trump Organization’s chief money guy, Allen Wiesellberg, has been accused of bilking the feds out of millions of dollars in income tax revenue.

Do ya think this probe might find its way to the top of the heap? Hmm. I’m betting yes. It will.

Either the ex-POTUS is certifiably insane to believe he won’t suffer several — and likely mortal — economic wounds from this indictment, or he’s going to skate away cleanly.

My ol’ trick knee is throbbing once again. It does this once in a while. The throb is telling me that the DA has the goods on the Old Man.

He will be left to bellow from the peanut gallery, accusing President Biden of being the Son of Satan, the most unpatriotic POTUS in history. This one is great, by the way: He also suggests that Biden wants to take down the Jefferson Memorial and replace it with something honoring civil-rights gadfly Al Sharpton.

This is the blathering of a man who twice lost the actual vote for president, squeaked by in an Electoral College victory the first time and then got smoked by even more votes the second time.

POTUS 45 is nuttier than a pound of pistachios.

Thank you, Mr. POTUS 45

Dear Mr. POTUS 45 …

Let me stipulate right up front that I am glad you are no longer in office. I cannot even print your name in my blog and I have declared my intention to avoid doing so at all costs. Readers of this blog know to whom I refer when I mention Imbecile in Chief, or Liar in Chief, or Numbskull in Chief.

However, I want to thank you for this single thing, for exposing the fellow morons out there in public life who have sucked up to your ignorance, your naked narcissism and your utter absence of moral compass.

My wife and I had breakfast this morning with an acquaintance of ours in Dripping Springs, Texas. He is a radio personality in the Hill Country and he mentioned how Gov. Greg Abbott “isn’t a nice guy.” What prompted the critique? I suppose it is because Abbott has glommed onto your pronouncements about illegal immigrants, or your phony assertions about how liberals are trying to destroy the country and all it stands for.

It dawned on my wife and me that we owe that critique to you, Mr. POTUS 45. You have revealed Abbott to be a political jerk, just like you are! Oh, there are many others. The governors of Florida, South Dakota, Georgia, Arizona come to mind. Senators and House members scattered throughout Capitol Hill, too. They have bought into your phony vote fraud scheme. They all are adherents of The Big Lie.

Thanks for exposing them to all of us, Mr. POTUS 45.

I cannot believe I am about to say this, but … you have performed a valuable public service. 

Who is “#1”? Any guesses?

By John Kanelis / johnkanelis_92@hotmail.com

Well now. The indictment of Trump Organization chief bean counter Allen Weisselberg contains a term just about anyone could have predicted would be in there.

It refers to “Unindicted co-conspirator #1.” Hmmm. My noodle is rolling that one around.

Who in this whole wide world could that be?

Oh, wait. I think I know. It well might be the former president of the United States of America, the teller of the Big Lie and the guy who wants to control all that is contained within the Republican Party.

Weisselberg has pleaded not guilty to an assortment of tax charges against him in the indictment handed down today by a grand jury working with the Manhattan district attorney’s office led by Cyrus Vance Jr.

The former president calls the indictment the result of the greatest witch hunt in human history. There are many of us, though, who wonder the obvious: When will the man for whom the Trump Organization is named find himself surrendering to authorities the way his chief financial officer did this morning?

Hasn’t the former Imbecile in Chief boasted over the years that nothing happens with his company without his knowledge? Hasn’t he talked and talked and talked again about how he runs everything? How he knows everything?

Just think, too, that this idiot emeritus might want to run for POTUS yet again in 2024.

This is just me thinking out loud, but my strong hunch is that — despite the passion exhibited among his “base” of lunatic supporters — he ain’t gonna make the GOP cut next time around.

Shut up … Mr. Ex-POTUS!

By John Kanelis / johnkanelis_92@hotmail.com

The moron who once served as commander in chief is known already to be off his ever-lovin’ rocker.

Now he needs to shut his pie hole and leave policy and personnel decisions to those who succeeded him and his gang of thieves.

POTUS 45 now says Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley should resign because he has spoken out against those who question whether he is sufficiently patriotic. “Gen. Milley ought to resign, and be replaced with someone who is actually willing to defend our Military from the Leftist Radicals who hate our Country and our Flag,” Trump wrote in a statement sent out by his Save America PAC about the four-star general, who he appointed to the nation’s top military post in 2019 over the objections of then-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

Oh, my.

The ex-president is unhinged, unshackled and unashamed of his own conduct. If given a chance to choose between the one-time Carnival Barker in Chief and a man who has served with distinction and honor in the U.S. Army … well, I’ll go with the general.

No way was it a ‘routine day of touring’

By John Kanelis / johnkanelis_92@hotmail.com

Congressional Republicans have their Big Lie — alleging vote fraud in the 2020 election. Now they might have spawned a smaller, but still significant, lie about the Jan. 6 insurrection.

Now that the U.S. House of Representatives has voted to create a select committee to examine the cause and consequence of the riot against the government, it is good to examine the other “big lie” making the rounds on Capitol Hill.

It’s the one that suggests that the riot was nothing more than a group of “peaceful tourists” taking part in a tour of the Capitol Building. Indeed, some members of the GOP congressional caucus have uttered such trash.

It begs the question: When has a “routine tour” left feces on the walls of the Capitol Building, or smashed through windows, or assaulted police officers with weapons and pepper spray, or left two officers dead and many other participants injured?

Never in my entire life have I witnessed such an egregious attempt at lying, deceit and boorish conduct as we have seen among congressional Republicans who have resisted calls for a thorough examination of the insurrection we saw play out on Jan. 6.

They won’t call it what it was: an insurrection against the government. They won’t acknowledge the role that the 45th POTUS had in inciting the mob of terrorists.

This lie won’t ever rise to the level of The Big Lie, given that the riot occurred because the disgraced ex-POTUS made the phony allegation that day and ignited the mob to do what it did.

However, this lesser — but still significant — lie about the riot being nothing out of the ordinary is bad enough. It likely will scar the current cult that masquerades as a political party perhaps for the rest of its existence.

Abbott kicks around another political football

By John Kanelis / johnkanelis_92@hotmail.com

Oh, my goodness, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. You have become such a disappointment to many of us you took an oath to serve.

You declare your intention to build a wall along our state’s southern border. You blast the Biden administration to smithereens over what you call a “failed border policy.” You decline to meet with Vice President Kamala Harris during her brief visit to El Paso to discuss border security issues with local officials.

Then you slobber all over yourself and all over the disgraced former president of the U.S.A. when he comes a callin’ to — that’s right — level criticism of the Biden administration.

You and POTUS 45 are on the same silly song sheet on so many misbegotten matters.

Governor, you need to put partisan politics aside and think of the greater good … for once.  Your politics-playing over this border matter simply makes me sick, not to mention the way you fawned over the visit of an individual who no longer has any say over federal policy — and whose company has just been indicted on criminal charges.

POTUS 45 lost the 2020 election, governor. You know that, yes? President Biden inherited a border crisis from his predecessor. Has he done well in bringing it under control? I agree that Joe Biden can do better and I am going to give him the benefit of hope that he will do better. I mean, he’s only six months into a presidency fraught with many existential problems that need everyone’s concern.

The border is one of them.

Last time I checked, Texas is still one of 50 states governed by politicians with varying degrees of competence. Gov. Abbott, I know you do not need to be told this, but good governance is a team sport. It requires cooperation at all levels of government. The feds rely on states to assist when they can and vice versa.

How about stepping up your good-governance game, governor? You need to be part of a team working toward a common goal, which is to secure our border.
