2017: Now What? Itsez will shortly undergo a Makeover. This....of course...is
THE NIGHTMARE CONTINUES!
June 23. Trump continues....defying the Law, History, and Common Sense.
It is all simply UNBELIEVABLE!!!
But...do you see ANY ACTUAL SIGN THAT HE CAN BE STOPPED?
The tragic shooting of Republican Rep. Steve Scalise by a misguided "Bernie Fan" is a totally and unbelievably tragic turn of events.
America has a Billionaire President....a Twitter-Nut...who absolutely believes he is Above The Law...and can ANYTHING HE DAMN WELL WANTS TO DO!
SO...WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE AMERICA? AND THE PLANET???
Big Coal, it turns out, is Dying. Fast. BUT...not quite fast enough.
So much for Donald Trump's "Green Coal"!
But what can WE do...right now....TODAY....to Stop Trump?
HE WILL DO EXACTLY THE SAME THINGS UNTIL HE IS TOSSED OUT OF OFFICE!
He will continue to Cut Corners. Pull Shenanigans. Conduct Illegal Transactions. Go right on Twittering Outright Lies. Use his Office for
He has already tilted the Supreme Court his way...
All by itself....the Consequence of Trump doing this will CRUSH America for YEARS TO COME!!!!
But....Trump does stop with....Screwing Up America.
But Trump has SQUASHED American Tourism to Cuba!!!!!!!!
AND WHAT ARE WE (YOU) DOING ABOUT ALL OF THIS?
It's one thing to watch Rachel Maddow expose YET ANOTHER UNSCRUPULOUS Republican....its quite another to BRING AN END TO IT!
So? Where is Bernie? Where is Liz? Where ARE OUR PEOPLE????
Now....Hold On. TRUMP IS NOW ACTUALLY BEING INVESTIGATED!!!!!!!!
Are we actually JUST ABOUT TO FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE????
While all this is going on....a new Story Line is emerging: "Stop Pillorying Hillary! Huh? The Absolutely Corrupt Clintons came within inches of actually Winning The Election. (About the only thing close to matching my xxx Stomach is the thought of Hilly/Billy back in the White House!)
Itsez Who? As far as I know...I am the only Living American who was an
June 2. The Trump Catastrophe Continues. Imagine:
Out here in California...there is actually a new Push to see if maybe the DNC cheated Bernie out of votes. But let's leave that alone for today.
But...Gov. Brown has taken California into Battle Mode vs. Trump and his Denial of Global Warming!!!! Gov. Brown is calling for Voters to REBELL AGAINST TRUMP...since we live in a state where the Global Environment has a HUGE impact on our Daily Lives! We live with 1,000 miles of Coastline...on the enormous Pacific Ocean. We FEEL IT every time there is the slightest change in Weather. In Los Angeles...they laugh about "May Gray" and June Gloom" ....brought on by onshore waves of Foggy Mornings, etc.
We just suffered through a long, sustained Rainless Period...when little or no rain actually fell on our Forests and Farms. Scary Stuff. So....we take Global Warming VERY, VERY SERIOUSLY OUT HERE!!!
(Stay tuned on that one....it could be MONUMENTAL!)
I may thoroughly DISLIKE Hillary....but...
Virtually EVERYTHING....that is....
So far, there has not been ONE THING TRUMP HAS DONE THAT I
Climate Change is...simply CATASTROPHIC!
He ain't doin' all this all by his Li'l Self, however. HUGE Corporate Dollars
So....starting Today...Itsez is going to begin to compile a List of Corporate Malefactors....the Very Worst Corporate Monsters....who, by their actions....
I will make a Pledge: I will get sick someday. The Doc will tell me:
When I was in New York....I saw first hand how Pfizer was SCREWING THE PUBLIC! Hateful People. (And...not just the Leaders. The Employees went along with their GHASTLY POLICIES!!!!!)
So...I say..."Go To Hell, Pfizer...and every Corporate Monster like you!"
TRUMP'S GOTTA GO! SOON!!!!!!
May 26. How much worse can it get? Trump is getting pelted with Rumors
In the meantime...how much DAMAGE can he do? Oh, boy is he TRYING...to hurt the Most Americans he can...just as long as they are not RICH.
With the Nonstop Barrage of...Allegations....we have to stop...read the Story... and decide each time whether it may or may not actually go somewhere.
ANYTHING THE GOPSTERS CAN DO TO STOP THE ASSAULT ON TRUMP ...they will do. No matter HOW MANY AMERICAN WILL ACTUALLY DIE!!!
When I slide in front of my TV at Dinner Hour....the Channel Switch is kept VERY BUSY. I don't linger on ANY station for very long....I see where they are....and skip around....but I STOP when Rachel or someone else actually has something to tell us. (And...even Rachel can Yammer on and on and on sometimes.)
I have copious Notes on These Scandals.......
When I hit Fox...most likely it is to hear about how
What can SURPRISE ME...these days?
They are....SlumLords....who make $$$Millions while harrassing Ordinary Working Folk who live in their Slum-Class Apartments!!!
I had No Idea. I thought....well....who cares? What LEAPS out of this Story is that Kirschner is a Heartless Monster. You must feel Right At Home in Trump Tower...etc., etc.
I'm stopping here. The More we learn...the MORE WE HATE TRUMP!
THE TRIP TRAP!!!!
May 19. Trump gets on the plane to fly to the Middle East...etc.
What Sweeteners will he toss to the Saudis?
You wanna put Money on Trump having a CLUE????
So.....we'll just have to monitor the Trip Reports....and see what happens.
The new Fun News is Fox's 5....led by Smilin' Watters. There he is, with his Fixed Giggle Expression....knifing anything that ever smacks of being on the side of actual, living Americans!
Remember....Trump's Steamroller has been DERAILED by all the Investigations and Allegations....so...except for Gorsuch....we do not yet have
First Flash News....hordes of Millenials are fleeing Trump's GOP....and this is HUGE NEWS for the Bernie Sanders Wing.
In Friday's NYTimes...esteemed columnist Paul Krugman says it quite plainly:
But Greed is the Driving Force behind RepUglyCons....
Rich Man's Wealth has made it increasingly difficult for Ordinary Americans
The GOPsters are absolutely SLATHERING at the chance to "Privatize" Social Security!!!! They just CAN'T WAIT to get their hands on all that Money!
So, actually....where do we go from here?
DIMOCRATS: WAKE UP!
May 12. It's time to GO WILD!
I say: "DUMP TRUMP NOW!"
Rachel Maddow keeps dropping new stories about how KRAZY Trump is... while the smirking crew at Watters World....just keeps laughing off any new allegations, stories, facts...etc.
It is clear that Deals have been made...highly Illegal Deals...with Russia and many other nations... that have benefitted LOTS of people who are involved with Donald Trump.
If you think that Trump..."Didn't Know"...you are simply HALLUCINATING!
WE are the ones who will suffer if that haappens!
I won't list all the CATSTROPHES that might happen AAT ANY TIME...
Tick. Tock. It's UP TO US, AMERICA!!!!!
Friday, May 5. The house just passed the most Ghastly Piece of Legislation in American History! Obamacare gets crushed by Hateful, RepUglies...who are
I spent the morning in the company of 2 "older" women. Not THAT Old...
In fact...I don't know ANYONE who doesn't need SOME SORT OF Healthcare!
Democrats are SCREAMING their outrage!
How much WORSE can it GET? I cannot believe the Senate will not
Which brings me back to the subject of...
Trump said: "Jobs!" Fine...for Campaign Rhetoric...but...real Job Growth is not really happening.
"Drain the Swamp!" Trump hollered that over and over again. And?
Our local newspaper already is flagging the fact that MANY JOBS IN HEALTHCARE...especially those targeting Poor Sick People...are Terrible.
OK...so....WHO IS GETTING RICH OFF THE SICK PEOPLE????
There is an EXPLOSION of News related to this House Passage.
The GOP has committed a CRIME AGAINST AMERICA.
The Next Move is to the Senate....Go Bernie/Liz, etc.
Stay tuned as we monitor the Latest Ugly Truth.
"WE WANT IT ALL!"
April 28. It's now obvious to....EVERYONE: Trump Wants It...All!"
Note that he hasn't actually made clear WHAT is in his Tax Plan...there are suggestions that he will drop Taxes for the Working Class...a li'l bit...but...
This otherwise Do Nothing President....(ZERO Laws Passed after nearly 100 Days In Office)...stands in Stark Contrast to FDR....who got no less than
Fake News: Wherever it may came from...Fake is Trump's way of denigrating any "News" that he doesn't happen to like. A Headline from California can grab his Attention....and WHAP! It's automatically labeled "Fake News!"
What REALLY BOTHERS ME right now is that Trump is actually GATHERING STEAM...ACCRUING BACKERS AND $$$s....and many actually Change The Game for All Americans...with the Richest 1% walking away with $Billions in New Cash!!!
You cannot help but notice that Trump has also declared Open War on Planet Earth. Hey! It's the only damn Planet we HAVE...and he's going to stand back and let the Oil & Gas Monsters DESTROY Earth!!!
Back on April 28th, Rachel gave Liz Warren a
IN THE MEANTIME...I sincerely hope that she and Bernie move forward to rebuild the Fractured, Impotent DIMocratic Party!!!!!
Obama has just been revealed to be grabbing a $450,000 check from Wall Street BigShots....this on top of his newest Book Deal...worth a cool $65Million! Remember...ex-US President Obama gets $200,000...cash....every year for the rest of his LIFE!
Watching the News on TV.....we see the unrelenting Attack on Real Americn Values.....even WITHOUT O'REILLY....with Fox yammering about Fake News....and more balanced channels blasting Michael Flynn....for taking
The squabbling over whether Russia actually DID interfere with the recent Election is nothing less than FARCICAL!!!! Obviously, Putin's hands are.... Dirty!!! So? What's holding up learning the Actual Facts here?
Here we are...another Friday....a little while form now the Evening News will come on....and I cringe in my chair wondering just what KRAZINESS will be revealed tonight???
FIGHT BACK...DON'T JUST SIT THERE!!!
Itsez Who? As far as I know...I am the only Living American who was an
What a Krazy Turn of Events!!! Suddenly...No Spin Zone O'Reilly is....OUT!!!
Who knew that Trump would result in O'REILLY BEING FIRED????
Please note that right there on Page One of Itsez...It Sez: "Fox Must Go!"
Well...Fox is still there...now we have to put up with the likes of Jesse Watters (that Smirking Assassin)...but Fox continues...spewing HATE for Anything Democratic.
Regarding the Trumpster...there is absolutely NO question that O'Reilly was a HUGE HELP to The Donald. It was as if Fox became a 24/7 Trump xxx...
And O'Reilly wasn't doing it along....he has a small ARMY of Anti-Dem Voices, guaranteed to TRASH ANYTHING DEMOCRATS HOLD DEAR!
Readers know I literally DEPISE Hillary....I believe deep in my bones that
But...Fox took it to another level: Benghazi?
We can't bring the Ambassador back to life...
Meahwhile...Trump could hand us another CATASTROPHY...at any moment.
Listen to Rachel Maddog (which is what Fox Fans call her)...she has just told
Rachel is...virtually Daily...WARNING US about The Donald.
I want ISIS defeated as much as Trump does. But...it has to be done according to the rules. Civilized Rules. Where we work with other nations to bring ISIS under control. Trump is all about Dropping Bombs!!!
I lived through 9/11...as Readers know. Ditto...at age 7...Pearl Harbor.
But Trump's Next Bomb may very will be to MURDER MILLIONS OF AMERICANS, by blocking them from vitally needed Healhcare.
The Damage Trump will do....from Day One..when his Foul Nominee actually is seated on the Supreme Court....can (and most likely WILL be...Catastrophic.)
And he will HAUNT THAT COURT FOR YEARS!
So? This is a very short list of Trump Disasters facing America.
The Good News is that more and more Americans are in a Fighting Back Mood; OK, the DIMoctrats blew the last Election....but...Itsez is finding a number of places on the Internet that let us SPEAK OUT! Tell It Like It Is.
FIGHT BACK...DON'T JUST SIT THERE!!!
Itsez Who? As far as I know...I am the only Living American who was an
TRUMP GOES TO WAR! So far...just Bombs for Syria.
April 7. So far...after 78 Days of TrumpUSA....the ONLY conclusion is that Democrats have lost their Minds!
Look...on VIRTUALLY EVERY SINGLE ISSUE UP FOR DEBATE....the Democrats have the Winning Ideas.
Yet...in VIRTUALLY EVERY SINGLE ACTUALL ISSUE NOW BEING CONTESTED....the RepUglies are (somehow)....WINNING!!!
Rich People Hate Taxes. (Uh...and so do countless "Ordinary" Americans.)
Uh...now contrast THAT with the way Rich People Evade Taxes Willy Nilly!
You see...they have been working ever since WWII...to figure out ways
And....WOW! Have THEY SUCCEEDED!!!!!!!!!!
When Bernie says: "Everyone Should Pay Their Fair Share"....he was 100% Correct. And? Sellout Hillary Won the Nomination.
BIG MONEY IS EVERYWHERE....and NOBODY KNOWS HOW TO GRAB BIG MONEY BETTER THAN THE (UGH!) CLINTONS!
Clintons: Stay Out Of The Game....forever!
So now what? Do I mean it when I say that the DIMocrats are simply... Leaderless? Yep. I have the HIGHEST REGARD for Bernie....but he has basically faded away.
Uh...what about....(to really reach for one)....Joe Biden? Biden is marvelous.
We need a Fresh New Face....Bold and Honest. And NOT ONE who is automatically beholden to Wall Street. (Schumer...et al.)
Uh...and what about Barack Obama? We hear he is working on his next $20,000,000 Book. Good Luck, Obama. He's already comfortably in the Millionaire Class...this will take him one step closer to Financial Nirvana.
Will the Book correct the Blatant Lies being spewed you by Trump...Daily?
Actually....it ain't so bad. And...here's the fascinating part of Obamacare:
So Trump continues to wave around Obamacare as a MASSIVE FAIL on the part of Democrats...when it actually is....QUITE GOOD! (And could easily be fixed if it were not for GOPster Roadblocks!!!
Return with me to the INFAMOUS SLUP cast by Mitt Romney...on Ordinary Americans: "47% of Americans are MOOCHERS!"
That LIE will Live In Infamy. It is one of the Cruelest and MOST
Unless you believe that Medicare and Social Security are UNDESERVED
As we speak...I am looking for a National Program....easily accessible via the Internet...that will enable Democrats of all Ages...to Jump In And Help...at
Where ARE YOU....DIMocrats????????
THE REAL TRUMP
March 31. America is in Crisis. The Donald is President...and nobody can predict what will happen next. He promised to Drain The Swamp...but he has staffed his new administration with Incompetents and Sellouts.
Then he gave us a look at HIS Healthcare Plan....and America Freaked Out!
So it was quickly withdrawn and right now is..."being worked on". Good Luck.
Incidentally...did you know (I did NOT know this)....that 62% of Bankruptcies in America are caused by....Medical Costs? Oh My. No WONDER we so badly need Healthcare Reform!!!!
As we await the Nightly News...to find out What Trump Has Done Lately...to Mess Up America....we are deluged with Bad News.
Trump has toyed with Putin....in ways we only barely understand...but NONE OF WHICH CAN BE GOOD FOR AMERICA!
This is a Given. Period. And now we get to the entire
But stay with this: Trump THINKS LIKE A BILLIONAIRE. He ACTS like a Billionaire. His entire mentality is that of a Very Rich Man. So....ALL his actions are...ultimately....geared to STEER MORE MONEY TO THE BILLIONAIRE CLASS!
And THAT is an Absolute Catastrophe for America.
He wants to Privatize Social Security and Medicare.
His INFRASTRUCURE Build Out will GUSHER $$$s into the hands of
Fortunately, there is some Good News on the Horizon: All over America, people like You and Me are gearing up to Fight Back.
Not by picking up a Gun...but by Voting Against All Things Trumpian.
We are going to leap at the chance to use the Internet to communicate quickly and forcefully to our Senators and Congressmen....including at the State and City Level. "NO!" will be the Message.
Itsez will have MUCH MORE on how You Can Help with all this.
NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!!!
March 24. Trump is stalling out. You see it everywhere.
And his attack on Obamacare is....hanging in the balance.
Keep in mind that Trump has MUCH MORE EVIL IN STORE FOR AMERICA.
Actually....the vast forces of the UberRich are far from being beaten.
Of course, the Democrats are trying to assemble a List of EVERYTHING TRUMP IS DOING WRONG....to establish the basis for a Major National Counterattack.
To SIMPLIFY this for the DIMocrats....Job One after Healthcare....
The RepUglies stopped Obama dead in his tracks....for an entire YEAR!
If Gorsuch gets on the Court....THE BIG MONEY INTERESTS WILL RUN AMERICA STRAIGHT INTO CATASTROPHY!
Trump does not believe in....Fact. Truth. Reality.
All the rest of the Population are....Takers. Living off the Tax Dollars of the Hard Working Rich Guys.
Never forget the infamous words of Mitt Romney:
For these people...."Hand Outs"...such as Social Security and Medicare...are simply Stealing From The Rich.
Believe me...they would rather see you DEAD than "helped" by $ Funds in your Retirement Years....or Medical Help for Illnesses.
OK...the Dems are....Trying. They really are.
He can only be BLOCKED by enough "No" Votes.
And THAT is going to be a real Nail Biter. As we were watching the News...who knows HOW this is finally going to turn out???
Remember....only 17% actually of Americans actually SUPPORT Trump/Ryan ...while a whopping 50% HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
TRUMP MUST GO!!!!!!
March 17. It is OVER! The Latest? Trump has announced that nothing less
What is this man THINKING OF??? What sort of Heartless American is actually FOR such a Horrible Denial of Meals to Old, Sick Americans...who cannot get to the Grocery Store? (Including plenty of Veterans!!!)
I NEVER HEARD A SINGLE BAD STORY ABOUT MEALS ON WHEELS!!!
Where did THIS ONE come from? BTW....you DO KNOW that the Stock Market is Booming....yeah..."Go Donald!!!"
We haven't gotten many details yet...but we hear that The Donald has HUGE TAX CUTS IN STORE FOR THE BANKSTERS, ETC.
I am going to watch with interest as SOME Americans come to the Rescue of Meals on Wheels. Ditto....Planned Parenthood. Remember when they tried to make it appear that Planned Parenthood was making Money selling Dead Babies!!!?
What will their STORY BE about how Meals on Wheels makes Secret $$$$ Millions?
Speaking of Sick Money....I took a Corporate Check into Bank of America...and they announced that they would be glad to cash the Check....but there would be an $8 Fee for Cashing a Corporate Check!!!
I snatched the check out of the Teller's Hand...and ran out of there.
When I went to DEPOSIT the Check at Citibank....they told me that they had NO SUCH FEE FOR CASHING A CORPORATE CHECK!!!
Bernie...where are you, Bernie? (Hillary...you stay Home.
Suddenly...the word: "TAX" turns up. Any time we discuss helping the Less Fortunate among us....Taxes comes up.
Most people....just go ahead and PAY THEIR TAXES...knowing how vital they re to the Economy in General.
BUT...some people really don't LIKE to pay Taxes. Some HATE PAYING TAXES. (Think of the grotesque T Party Image...Pay Enuf Already.)
Wall Street, of course, absolutely ABHORS Taxes...and They work unceasingly to CUT THEIR TAXES. But Wall Street enjoys ENORMOUS TAX BREAKS
Trump appears to be on the Verge....of SLASHING INCOMES ON HIGHLY PAID AMERICANS...including the entire Bankster Class.
DRAIN THE SWAMP!
March 10. Yeah....that's The Donald Talkin'.
They then attack Obamacare as if it was the Worst Thing That Ever Happened to the Good Ole USA!
The latest is the Allegation...that Obamacare is...disintegrating!!!
Uh....why did we NEED....Obamacare? Hmmmm? Oh, easy: We NEEDED IT because there were Millions of Americans who did NOT HAVE ANY HEALTHCARE COVERAGE!
So....Obama...being the Gentle Centrist that he is....tried to cobble together a Universal Plan that would provide a Safety Net for 20,000,000+ Americans!
And for THAT...he is called an Incompetent Fumbler.
OK...so now Trump is President. And? What do you suppose he is quietly doing, behind the Scenes? He is FIRING OLD, EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS in all those Government Departments!!!
I had first-hand experience with a Non-Profit in NYC....which has been around since the Great Depression. The Mission: Help find employment for men and women....over the Age of 40....who were FIRED....and could NOT easily find new jobs!!!!
When I got out to California....an early meeting was with no less than 50 recently fired Hewlett Packard people. Fired! Why? Because MANAGEMENT WAS SENDING THEIR JOBS OVERSEAS!!!!
Their chances of EVER getting an equally Good-Paying Job? Zilch.
HP is one thing; firing LONG-TIME GOVERNMENT EXPERTS IN FOREIGN AFFAIRS is...nothing less than INSANE!
There people know the details of America's relationships with hundreds of Foreign Powers...many of which WISH US NO GOOD!
And? Trump has simply....FIRED THEM! "Get Out!"
So...when the next Midnight Crisis develops in some far-away Oil Sheikdom,
Or...take something in the Environmental Line. Some Company is trying to
Gee...Pete...our Long-time Midwestern Oil Leaks Expert....is....OUT.
And...so it goes.
Trump is continuing...NON-STOP....on a Catastrophic Course for America.
I have NO IDEA how is ever going to be brought under Control.
It seems, as of March 10, 2017, that Trump will Self-Implode...and the ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS...How Much Damage Will He Have Caused?
January 20. THE INAUGURATION...POMP AND CEREMONY, 2017.
OK...time for Donald John Trump to Speak. What would he SAY?
NOTHING. He repeated Platitudes about "Making Ameircan Great Again."
Trump has PACKED his Administration with Insiders...
Trump is a TOTAL FARCE! A Fraud.
I will stop right here.
AMERICA HAS JUST BOUGHT INTO A CATASTROPHY!!!!
Stay Tuned for Updates!
TRUMP: BAD? OR...CATASTROPHIC???
January 13. One Week to go. As we approach Inauguration Day...the News
That simply means: "Go DIE...you Poor Slobs!"
Of course the MOST HORRENDOUS ATROCITY is the pending move to Absolutely CRUSH any hope of halting Global Warming.
Whoa. Stop. What this simply means is that a tiny group of RichRichRich
Trump calls the Science of Global Weather simply a HOAX!!!!
No place or time here right now to even BEGIN to undue THAT Nonsense.
What are YOU GONNA BE ABLE TO DO???
Be prepared to Fight Back. With everything we have
As of January 27...there will be a New Feature on Itsez.

Yikes. Stay Tuned. (Oh, Bernie...How I Miss Ya!)
ILD....booming to a New High after the Trump Victory. Hmmmm. Amazing.
What Happens Next? Stay Tuned. This will be....Amazing!
PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE...no Offshore Hideaways
4. America needs...RIGHT NOW.....WiFi for ALL AMERICANS!!!
5. We need to KEEP our Free Libraries...FreePost Offices...(which, again, the GOPSTERS are trhing to PRIVATIZE!!!!! And so on.
6. HEALTHCARE remains a National Disgrace.
I can go on. You get the Drift. Well? Whatchagonna DO About it???
