  • Republicans, desperate to avoid impeachment, keep throwing everything against the wall in the hopes that something will stick.
  • Donald Trump Jr. was booed off the stage, not by Liberals, but by Trumps supporters after Don Jr. refused to do a Q&A because Liberals were too loud, not realizing he was being heckled by his fellow Republicans.
  • Republican Mike Pompeo is having a bad day. Pompeo told the press that Michael McKinley never said a word to him about the firing of Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, McKinley has testified under oath that he most certainly did.
  • The fact that Bill Barr refused isn't newsworthy, but is is newsworthy that Trump asked him to publicly state how blackmailing Ukraine was perfectly legal.
  • Proving just how focused he is on the presidency, Trump is thinking about going back to being a game show host.
  • Tennessee Republicans have a choice between a doctor who say Jesus forgives him for sexually assaulted his patients and a racist scumbag.
  • Another rat leaves the sinking ship: Republican Peter King has become the 20th Congressional Republican to admit he won't be seeking reelection.
  • Amazon paid $1,500,000 to prevent Democrats from holding office in Seattle, Washington, but they won anyway, and they plan on forcing Amazon to pay taxes and pay their workers a livable wage.

I've updated all my music-themed pages on my Wiki so that listed genres are now links, and created a page for the current most popular genre, alternative rock.

  • Republican Rand Paul thinks Trump should be allowed to publicly name the whistleblower who reported his Ukrainian blackmail, citing the sixth amendment which allows a defendant to confront their accuser. Of course, he's absolutely wrong. Impeachment is not a criminal trial, so the sixth doesn't apply, and, even if it were, both Trump and Rand Paul most likely already know the whistle blower's name and could publicly state it without recourse, they just want Democrats or the media to do their dirty work for them. Not that the identity of the whistle blower matters, six people, who were active Republicans or appointed by Republicans, have already went on record saying that, yes, Trump did indeed blackmail the president of Ukraine in order to harm a political rival.
  • Trump's wall is so useless that, not only can you cut through it with an over-the-counter saw, but it can be climbed over by an eight-year-old!
  • US District Judge Paul Friedman accurately states that Trump "violates all recognized democratic norms."
  • Republicans have used various shady and corrupt methods to raise an obscene amount of campaign money.
  • Lindsey Graham doesn't think Trump blackmailed a foreign nation because he refuses to read the transcript.
  • Let's keep the Southern victories going through to the next election!
  • You can use Elizabeth Warren's tax calculator for billionaires to find out how much the greed tax will affect you. As you can imagine, the ultra-wealthy wolves of Wall Street are not happy about this.

I've changed my tech page to the computer page and added a pages for operating systems, software, hardware, and the Internet.

  • After Trump blackmailed a US ally to cast doubt on his political rivals, he also asked Republican William Barr to publicly absolve him. Barr likes to think himself superior with his great Christian morals, but he's as dirty as they come.
  • Trump keeps telling people to "read the transcript!" Two things about that: one, we did, that's why everyone knows you've committed a crime. Two, that's not even a transcript, but a rough transcript. You're still hiding the full transcript.
  • Why did Republican Gordon Sondland change his testimony about the quid pro quo? Probably because he learned that a lot of other witnesses were spilling the beans, and he didn't want to go to prison for perjury.
  • Trump has lost another lawsuit and has been ordered to personally pay $2,000,000 to a nonprofit group because of his criminal charity violations. It's a start.
  • Republicans love discriminating against women, racial minorities, and the LGBT. For centuries they've been fighting to keep their bigotry codified into US law, even to the point of denying medicine, but their fight just got a little harder now that a US District Judge ruled that people can't just claim their religion allows them to refuse medical treatment.
  • Republican Mike Pence has had an active hand in rerouting US aide to ensure that it only helps his fellow Christians.

I finished reading Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice. Hated it!

  • With Trump's ambassador to the EU testifying that Trump did indeed demand a quid pro quo from Ukraine, that makes six high-level administrators agreeing against him. Ambassador Gordon Sondland, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, former Ukraine Ambassador William B. Taylor, Tim Morrison, Republican Senator Ron Johnson, and Republican acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.
  • Republicans are going to hold onto Trump no matter how deep into the bowels of hell he drags them. In a way, that's good, because it will cause irreparable damage to their party, but, in the process, it's going to cause irreparable harm to our country as well.
  • A couple months ago, Trump offered to help Vladamir Putin douse the Russian wildfires. Today, Trump is cutting funding to the West coast to douse America's wildfires. Trump is truly the "Russia First" president.
  • Under Trump, white supremacists have become emboldened, but most of them still hide their overt racism behind a veneer of "heritage" and "culture." Take for example Richard Spencer, who doesn't consider himself a white supremacist, bur rather "alt-right." Shortly after a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters and murdered Heather Heyer, Spencer held an emergency meeting where he was recorded issuing a long tirade of racist slurs and hate against Jews and black people. Despite his attempt to put racism in a cheap suit and haircut, he's still racist garbage. And don't forget, Trump said there were good people on both sides.
  • Trump has always bragged that he likes to sexually assault women, and, though she doesn't have recordings, one of his accusers has been able to show that Trump had called her directly several times.
  • Trump tried going out in public again and he was thoroughly booed again! Shaming and mocking Trump is what good honest people do.
  • Warren for 2020.

I've added a page for the video game, A-Train.

  • Nancy Polosi talks about the impeachment investigation against Trump and how well it's progressing after the House passed the vote with every Republican refusing to accept that Trump's blackmailing of a foreign government for his own person gain was wrong.
  • Republicans are claiming that the portions of the US Constitution that outline how to impeach the President are unconstitutional! They're also refusing to testify or even show up for the impeachment inquiries. If an ordinary American tried that, they would rightly be arrested and put in jail, but Republicans pride themselves on being above the law.
  • Trump referred to those who don't blindly follow everyone of his crazed decisions as "human scum." Rather than come up with a creative way to spin Trump's hate speech, the White House's new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, kicked off her new job by say, yes, Trump's critics are indeed human scum. This isn't unexpected considering that more than one Trump employee has come forward saying they were told they would be fired if they didn't publicly praise him.
  • Everyone knew it was only a matter of time before it happened, but Trump pushed it through anyway. The Keystone oil pipeline, which so many Native Americans protested for years to demand it not be allowed to plow through their land, many of whom were arrested and tortured for trying to stop its construction, has just dumped 383,000 gallons of crude oil into wetlands. The wildlife there has been dangerously contaminated and will remain polluted for decades, if not centuries.
  • Another loss for Trump as his appeal to keep his taxes hidden fails in court.
  • Trump's non-stop crime spree makes it difficult to focus on all the other news that's going on.

I've begun a page on the Video Graphics Array hardware.

  • New information on Trump's criminal call to Ukraine. Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman explained how White House lawyer John Eisenberg, after being informed of Trump's blackmail conversation, took the phone call's transcripts and hid them. Naturally, Fox and Republicans are saying every bigoted thing they can think of to discredit the American veteran.
  • The House of Representatives has officially voted on and passed the impeachment inquiry. 194 Republicans voted against it, which means, 194 Republicans care more about their party than the country. Very strangely 2 Democrats voted against it, which means 2 Democrats are going to have a hard time getting re-elected!
  • Trump posted an obviously fake photo of himself giving the medal of honor, one of America's highest military awards, to the canine who helped Navy Seals take down Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The original photo was of James McCloughan, a retired army medic who saved the lives of 10 people in Vietnam, but Trump, apparently preferred the dog. In addition to dishonoring the US soldier, Trump also inadvertently declassified the dog's name which was supposed to be secret. When asked about the secrecy, Trump confirmed the name, just in case there was any doubt. Just another boneheaded move from Trump.
  • Trump chose Lawrence VanDyke to be a federal judge. However, during the Judiciary Committee to determine if he is capable, the committee read various personal opinions from VanDyke's colleagues in the American Bar Association. They described his as lazy, incompetent, unqualified, and pointed out that VanDyke himself refused to say he would judge LGBT people fairly. After hearing all his colleague's criticism against him, VanDyke broke down crying. Naturally, Republicans ignored all of the criticism and accused the ABA of bigotry against Conservatives.
  • Dr. Randall Williams, Missouri's state health director appointed by Republican Pat McCrory, was keeping private records of women's menstrual cycles without their knowledge or consent, in an attempt to determine if they were secretly having abortions.

I added a page for The Fratellis' song Whistle For the Choir.

  • National Security Council Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified that Republicans doctored the transcript of Trump's phone call to Ukraine by purposely removing the most incriminating portions.
  • I love that Trump finally got a taste of what the American public really think of him, and I hope he goes to public events more.
  • After years of claiming the Obama didn't lift a finger to stop Osama Bin Laden, Trump is now trying to take all the credit for killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, but it's not going as well as he planned.
  • Republican Paul Petersen, used his Mormon church to commit a whole slew of crimes including human smuggling, sale of a child, fraud, forgery, and conspiracy to commit money laundering. And, true to form for a Republican, Peterson's attorney is arguing, not only should he be able to keep his government job in spite of all these crimes, but suspending him for something as minor as selling children is unconstitutional!
  • Trump only hires the best men for the job.

A Catholic adoption agency is demanding that they be allowed to continue to discriminate against any potential parents who don't adhere to their strict Christian moral code. Apparently, protecting child raping priests is good, but a child being raised by loving parents who aren't married is a mortal sin. Thankfully, the courts don't seem to be as ignorant as they are.

  • Why did Trump throw US allies the Kurds to the wolves, and abandon Syria for Russia and Turkey to carve up the nation for themselves? And why is he now talking about a military invasion for their oil right after claiming he wanted to get out of the Middle East (but not until we sell US troops to Saudi Arabia?
  • GM, Chrysler, and Toyota are siding with Trump when it comes to the elimination of state's rights. They don't care about the environment, they don't care about small government, they only care about not having to make their vehicles pollute less, and they'll stake their reputations on a criminal president who is being impeached to remain dirty.
  • SNL accurately captures the average Trump supporter, and Trump's criminal sons.

Over the weekend, I finished reading Seth Andrews's book Sacred Cows.

  • Trump is so used to controlling who is around him, he has the privilege of not knowing that most of the country hates him. However, when he goes to a public event, rather than one of his Klan rallies, he gets an earful.
  • Why does Trump brief Russian politicians before briefing American politicians? Because he knows who he's really beholden to.
  • Trump owes over $1,000,000 in unpaid bills to cities all over the nation for his fascist rallies.
  • Because he's a narcissus, Trump tries to turn his gaffes into jokes.
  • Bobby Rankin snubbed Republican Mitch McConnell, not just because McConnell is a monster, but because McConnell's destruction of veteran benefits caused extra strife for Bobby's now deceased veteran brother.
  • Republicans just knowingly elected a convicted child predator to a government job, because, of course they did.

  • Trump's lawyers are spelling out what Republican Attorney General William Barr hinted at: Republicans believe the President can literally murder someone in public and not be arrested until they leave office.
  • Trump's impeachment investigation is going great for people who care about justice, but not so great for Republicans. When they broke into the secure section of the House of Representatives to disrupt Trump's impeachment, they did more that break the law, they compromised national security. With their cell phones filming and microphones recording, Republicans just gave anyway any secrets of the room to every hostile government in the world.
  • Abortion rates are in decline, not because Republicans are criminalizing it, but because Democrats are ensuring people have easy access to birth control.
  • The US has a long history of allowing white men to form mobs and murder black people without charge or trial in a criminal process called lynching. For centuries, black people everywhere lived in fear that they would be murdered in such a horrible way. So, when a white man complains that people investigating their crimes is a "lynching," it's not only impossible to take them seriously, but it's also an admission on their part of racism.

  • After Trump abandoned US allies to die in Syria, Turkey and Russia declared their intent to share the area the US once protected. Meanwhile, Trump brags mission accomplished. And Trump didn't just purposely abandon our Kurdish allies in Syria, he's even abandoning them here in the USA as well.
  • Trump's ambassador to Ukraine explained that, yes, the hold on military aide to Ukraine was for a quid pro quo, and, yes, Trump was directly responsible. Republicans violate the law to cause a small riot in the House of Representatives. Mick Mulvaney tries to say he didn't say what he said, and Rudy Giuliani is still crazy.

I've broken out a page specifically for video game controllers and added a page for the company Tecmo and the home computer, the ZX Spectrum.

  • Trump used to pretend to love the Kurds, then they got in the way of his Turkish hotel, so they had to die. Literally thousands of people from American allied nations are dead, and it's Trump's fault. He personally helped ISIS terrorists to escape prison and expand their territory in Syria. Trump needs to be impeached, then arrested, then imprisoned.
  • Trump, still not sure why people think it's wrong of him to use the US Presidency as his own personal checkbook, gets annoyed when even Republicans complain, so he decided not to host the G7 at his own resort. But his acting Chief of Staff (because he still doesn't have a real one) Mick Mulvaney is still loyal and tried to do damage control by explaining why it's okay for Trump to be especially corrupt because he's in the hotel business. Uh, no! Presidents are not supposed to be in any business! They're supposed to sell their businesses or put them in blind trusts. Trump did neither!
  • Trump is literally selling the US military to fight Saudi Arabia's wars. The USA is now a mercenary nation.
  • Trump gives the middle finger after women astronauts corrected his ignorance of women in space. He might argue that he was merely scratching his face with his middle finger, but he seems to do this an awful lot when people correct his stupidity.
  • Remember how Trump can't actually read, and Jerry Fawell Jr. had an affair with his pool boy? Samantha Bee remembers.
  • New Jersey Mayor, Republican Ed McKelvey, went on a hate-speech rant against same-sex marriage at a church because he was too stupid to realize an online article about the US Supreme Court legalizing incest was a joke!

Well-educated people whose understanding of the world grows and adapts to new information are exactly the type of people we need leading the country. Too bad we never elect them!

The Reid Technique is a form of interrogation taught to law enforcement. Although its goal is to get criminals to confess crimes, what actually ends up happening very frequently is it manipulates innocent people into confessing to crimes they didn't commit. The TV show When They See Us, which is about how police tricked five children into confessing to a horrible crime, but eventually discovered that the five children were innocent (Trump still says they're guilty), explained exactly what it wrong with the Reid technique, so now the people who teach the technique are trying to sue the creators!

For the majority of the existence of the Mormon Church, they have been extremely racist, explaining the origin of dark skin as their god punishing white people by turning their skin black so everyone would know they're evil. Then, just as they were about to lost their tax exempt status for racism, the leaders of the church claimed their god told them to start accepting black people among their ranks, only to later acknowledge it wasn't their god after all, they were just being racist. You'd think with their extremely embarrassing past they would take a more progressive approach to LGBT rights, but, no, they're still backing the torture of gay people in an attempt to "fix" their sexuality.

Marlon Anderson, a black security guard, was called the n-word by a student, and Anderson told the student not to call him the n-word, so, the high school fired him for using the n-word.

  • After denying it for weeks, Republicans are now openly admitting the Trump demanded a quid pro quo from the Ukraine, says that they do it all the time, and told Americans to just get over it! This may have been in response to Gordon Sondland, Trump's ambassador to the European Union, admitting that Trump ordered him to work with Rudy Giuliani to blackmail Ukraine. Sondland's admission is nice, but it's not like he's a hero. Remember, he spent about $1,000,000 of tax payer money renovating his own home.
  • The parents of Harry Dunn, the 19-year-old who was hit and killed by Anne Sacoolas who was driving on the wrong side of the road, and then fled the country to escape punishment, were brought to the USA to meet with Trump. Trump made sure the cameras were rolling when he surprised the parents by telling them, with no prior warning, that they could meet with the woman who killed their son, but only if they did it right now, while he filmed them. The parents explained they are very willing to meet Sacoolas, but only with therapists and mediators there to help resolve the issue, they refused to use their tragedy to be a publicity stunt for a disgusting ghoul like Trump!

I added a page on software distribution models, and, where applicable, categorized all the software on my Wiki as freeware, shareware, crippleware, nagware, and adware.

  • After Trump witlessly pulled US forces out of Syria leaving Kurdish forces to be invaded by Turkey so Trump's Turkish real estate would do better, Kurds are now seeking protection by US enemy, Russia. Funny how everything involving Trump always ends up in Russia for some reason. Even after someone explained to Trump how ISIS terrorists are being held captive by the Kurds, and, if the Kurds fall, all the terrorists will be released, Trump said they would only kill our allies in Europe, so, who cares? Someone must have finally got through to Trump, because he eventually decided to impose sanctions on Turkey, but, as usual with Trump, it's too little too late.
  • Rudy Giuliani's associates, and good friends of Trump, are in jail, and Giuliani might not be far behind, what with all the crimes.
  • Republican Mike Pompeo is trying to cover up the fact that he's part of the most corrupt White House in the history of our country by using his office to preach his religion. Little does he know that using a secular position of power to preach your religion is, in itself, a form of corruption.
  • Republicans openly admit they know Trump is racist, know he's unqualified, know he's ruining the country, but they will continue to vote for him anyway.
  • White supremacy in my own backyard, and maybe the police shouldn't be so eager to protect Nazis?

  • The leaders of the US military wants to remain in Syria, US allies want the US military to stay in Syria, even other Republicans want the US military to stay in Syria, but Russia does not want the US military to stay in Syria. Therefore, Trump ordered the US military to withdraw from Syria and refuses to listen to all his experts, generals, and fellow Republicans.
  • More is happening in the impeachment process, and Trump's latest scandals are only helping it along.
  • Republican Rick Perry didn't even know what the Department of Energy did when he was chosen to run it, and he forgot that it even existed during his run for president. Despite these facts, Trump chose him to lead it. Now Trump is throwing Perry under the bus blaming him for setting up the Ukraine corruption phone call, and Perry is being subpoenaed by Congress. The White House has already openly defying Congress by denying them access to investigate, so Perry might not even respond.
  • True to form, Trump spent national Coming Out Day meeting with hate groups.

I gave up on reading Gone Girl, an absolute garbage novel.

  • Republicans are calling for the execution of the person who blew the whistle on Trump's criminal Ukraine call, but it turns out at least four different US national security officers raised alarms about the call. Trump thinks he's above the law, and Republicans doing everything in their power to make that so, but the impeachment is on the wall, and if they drag this out long enough, maybe the next president will actually hold him accountable.
  • With his long history of not paying his bills, event centers have finally wised up and are demanding Trump pay for his klan rallies up front. Naturally, he threatened to sue. And, while at the rally, Trump spewed forth an attack against refugees saying they hate America and shamed anyone who wants to care for the needy.
  • Trump did run on a campaign of being a "deal maker," and that's precisely what his followers got. Trouble is, his "deals" always seem to involve helping the criminals who work for him.
  • Republican Mike Pompeo, Trump's flavor of the month for Secretary of State, has just lost his senior adviser Michael McKinley who wisely resigned rather then get caught up in the impeachment scandal.
  • Facebook's official policy allows politicians to lie about anything and everything in their ads, but then, Facebook has a long history of messing up.

  • When the person you back turns out to be a rapist, a con man, and a flagrantly abuses the power you've entrusted him with, the wise thing to do is to disavow him, distance yourself from him as far as possible, and demand justice against him, but Republicans are anything but wise. They're openly defying the entire American justice system in order to protect their criminal. This is why you don't get involved with a cult of personality. As Trump continues to break the law with impunity, his helpers who aren't above the law continue to get arrested while trying to flee the country, yet again on campaign finance violations involved with Russia!
  • The only reason the US made any headway in slowing the invasion of Syria by ISIS was because Kurds did our fighting for us. Then, Trump left them to die (16 fatalities and growing) at the hands of Turkey, strange because Trump has nothing but hatred for Muslims and Turkey is an almost exclusively Muslim nation. The Turks have invaded the Kurds and Trump is dismissing the fact that US allies are being invaded by saying the Kurds didn't help the US in World War II.
  • Anne Sacoolas, an American politician's wife living in the UK, was driving on the wrong side of the road and smashed into teenager, Harry Dunn, killing him. Rather than go through the UK legal system, Sacoolas declared diplomatic immunity and she and her family hastily fled the UK back to the USA leaving the dead teen's family begging for justice. Trump not only callously shrugged off the killing, but found a way to make it about himself, saying, "The woman was driving on the wrong side of the road. And that can happen, you know. Those are the opposite roads. That happens. I won't say it ever happened to me, but it did."
  • It's funny how Republicans tout law and order, yet completely hate the FBI and CIA.

I finished reading Deconverted: A Journey From Religion to Reason. I also added a page for a Social Security notice hoax.

  • Trump is crying foul over his impeachment even as new impeachable offenses keep being made public and even as he demands more of his critics be impeached. For example, Republicans ordered Gordon Sondland, a key witness in the Ukraine corruption scandal, to refuse to attend his deposition or any questions from investigators. The Republican strategy here seems to be, the crime of obstructing justice is less-damaging to Trump than any testimony Sondland might give.
  • Financial organization Goldman Sachs explains how all of the fallout from Trump's trade wars has fallen entirely on US businesses and households. This basically translates to an increased price in most of what you buy in the store specifically because of Trump's misguided actions.

  • Republicans are once again trying to make it a crime for Americans to use strong encryption. Trump's Attorney General William Barr, a criminal in his own right, is using the tired argument that encryption prevents law enforcement from stopping child predators... you know, like Trump's friend, Jeffery Epstein. The reality is, like a car, a computer, or a camera, encryption can be used to commit crimes, but that doesn't mean it should be illegal, especially at a time when mass surveillance in the USA has never been worse.
  • US National Security said Trump got "rolled" by Turkish President when he agreed to withdraw US forces from Northern Syria which is precisely what was wanted by Turkey, Russia, and ISIS.
  • The Trump's eventually realized that they were about to allow an anti-Muslim hate group to throw a party at Mar-a-Lago and canceled the event. The hate group said, they still support the Trumps and blame the Left for stopping them.

I've created a page for the gaming trope, boss tease.

  • The founding fathers weren't perfect, and they clearly didn't think-through the process of impeachment, but it's still the right thing to do. As is typical with Trump, when he's accused of a crime, his go-to response is to accusing everyone else of what he did. So, to those who are investigating him for possible treason, he's accusing of treason. Meanwhile, he and his fellow Republicans are trying various tactics to avoid blame including admitting to crimes before they blow up in an attempt to normalize the crime and trying to declare total ignorance, but maybe they should try arguing that you can't be immoral if you're too ignorant to know right from wrong?
  • I've spoke with a couple Republicans who don't understand why it's wrong for Trump to give and take favors from sketchy foreign nations, and Trump gives me another example. The USA has been helping Kurdish troops fight ISIS in Syria, and they have successfully taken back the region. However, Turkey wants the Kurds out of there so they can control Northern Syria themselves, and, just as the Trump's started construction of a new Trump tower in Turkey, Donald Trump stated publicly that the US military will no longer support the Kurds or interfere with Turkey going to war with them! The Trumps will gladly sacrifice American allies to get a real estate deal.

I've made pages for the MacVenture game series and the Gauntlet game series.

  • Another world leader, another request to take down Trump's political rivals. Trump may have been trying to cover up an earlier meeting when he asked China to investigate the Bidens yesterday, because we're now learning that Trump privately asked Chinese ruler Xi Jinping to investigate the Bidens and Elizabeth Warren back in June. Republicans still claim there is no evidence of a quid pro quo in any of these three meetings, but, obviously, any objective observer sees each as such. New evidence has been released which show Trump did indeed want Ukraine to investigate the Bidens even before the phone call, he withheld their military aid, and then asked the president to do him a favor, and Ukrainian diplomats have even been quoted saying they were worried of a quid pro quo! Even our own White House was afraid the conversation would get out to the public and locked it away in a hidden vault. Naturally, Republicans are trying to discredit the evidence, and even calling for violence to befall those investigating them.
  • More commentary about Trump's 2,000-mile-long alligator moat.
  • Republicans do not care about state's rights. Iowa painted a couple crosswalks in the colors of various LGBT movements, so, naturally federal Republicans demanded they stop. Specifically, Mitch McConnell's wife, Republican Elaine Chao. But, the roads that were painted were state-funded roads, not federal highways! So, not only are Republicans trying to take away state's rights, they're specifically trying to take away the things that have nothing to do with the federal government!

I've created a page for the Hello Saferide song, I Thought You Said Summer Is Going to Take the Pain Away.

  • Trump has been throwing tantrums since even before he became president, but now that the impeachment is heating up, he's at the point where he's claiming that those who don't support him should be guilty of treason. Things have only gotten worse as Trump picked a fight with journalists at his meeting with the President of Finland and then openly asked China to find dirt on his political opponents.
  • A second whistleblower has come forward saying that Republicans, Trump especially, used their positions of power to stop the IRS from performing the necessary audit of Trump's and Pence's taxes.
  • Republican Mike Pompeo appears to be trying to intimidate his employees at the State Department into not cooperating with the impeachment investigation.
  • At a time when Rudy Giuliani is being investigated for his corrupt dealings with Ukraine, he doesn't seem to want to stop having long talks with federal criminal Paul Manafort who went to prison for... corrupt dealings with Ukraine.

  • Demonstrating the point, if you condition people by being terrible long enough, nobody will be bothered when you do something terrible, a poll shows that fewer than 20% of Americans are surprised that Trump blackmailed a foreign government to try to win the upcoming election, but, thankfully, most Americans still see this as a serious problem. But it isn't just blackmailing a foreign government that Trump has been accused of, there is a lot more to the whistleblower complaint including the misuse of a private sever to hide all his underhanded dealings, and he isn't exactly trying to be subtle about hiding his guilt, and neither is his loose-lipped lawyer. Trump is now going full-on tyrant saying those people who investigate his crimes should be arrested for treason and, if he's impeached, the US will have another civil war, but Republican Adam Kinzinger repudiates him. Trouble is, most of Trump's backers have dug in this deep, they're afraid to pull out now and Trump continues to try and lie his way out.

  • Trump's made his bed of corruption and while he claims to have willingly given up the rough transcript of the call, the whistleblower complaint shows that Republicans did everything in their power to eliminate the records. Hopefully, this will ultimately lead to Trump's impeachment. The telephone transcript between him and Ukraine clearly show him offering up the help of the US Department of Justice to a foreign government in order to uncover dirt on his political rivals. True to form, Trump is trying to lie his way out of it, first by claiming his hold on the military aid was for security reasons (the Pentagon refuted his claim), then claiming he did it because Biden's son is a criminal (Ukraine's legal system refutes this), and finally by claiming he can't be impeached or the stock market will crash.

I've reworked my page on video games that can be put into an unwinnable state.

  • A rough transcript of Trump's call to the president of Ukraine has been made available. This isn't a recording, but rather the combined statements of those in the room listening to the phone call. The transcript shows that the accusations against Trump saying he requested Ukraine work with Attorney General William Barr to find dirt on the Bidens is all true! Apparently, he also asked them to help him find the email server of Hillary Clinton (seriously!) to which the Ukraine president agreed to help. He didn't have much choice, because Trump had stopped the military aid Congress approved for them to defend against a Russian invasion. Turns out, Trump's own advisors expected him to take this corrupt route and tried to disrupt the phone call as much as possible! Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani claimed he was among the first to see the transcript of the call, which pissed off a lot of actual government officials who say they should have been the first to know.

  • The current facts about Trump and the call to Ukraine are, he definitely ordered his Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, to withhold military aid before he made the call. He admitted to talking about Joe Biden's son. All that's missing is him admitting the two are connected, but the White House is trying to keep silent about such a disgraceful act and instead attacking the credibility of the whistleblower. This has caused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to state that she will begin a formal impeachment inquiry, which has caused Trump to change tunes on releasing the transcripts!

I finished reading Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot.

  • More details about the crime Trump committed that was so bad his own employees blew the whistle on him. It appears that Trump, once again, asked a foreign power to investigate his political rivals. Trump is accused of withholding military aide from Ukraine, which they desperately needed to stop a Russian invasion, unless the nation agreed to re-open their corruption case against a petroleum company that Joe Biden's son is involved with. So far, Trump has admitted that he spoke to Ukraine about the Bidens, and so has his lawyer Rudolph Giuliani, after lying about it first. Trump, Giuliani, and Trump's Press Secretary (a former Fox employee) all refuse to share the transcripts or even talk to the press about anything at all. This administration's White House has been nothing but leaks since day one, but the worst leaker in Trump's mouth. Seriously, the military has to constantly tell him to stop revealing their secrets!

Last night I beat the game, Digital: A Love Story.

  • Still only surface details about the whistleblower have been leaked by White House staff. They're claiming that the person who reported severe corruption by Trump making an obscene promise to a foreign leader involves the nation of Ukraine. Ukraine has been in the news since 2014 when Russia invaded and conquered a part of the nation. Based on his past, we can probably assume that Trump's back-room deal was not only terrible for the USA, but also highly illegal. In fact, his personal lawyer, Rudolph Giuliani is once again making a mess for Trump, getting caught up in his own lies, and implied that he and Trump asked Ukraine to get dirt on Joe Biden.
  • I have no love of our nation's wasteful military spending, and I would prefer to see the entire military budget cut to less than one tenth its current size, but I can still critique Trump's hypocrisy. Despite all his claims that he's in favor of the US military, his priorities are always about himself. Case in point, he is pulling funding from the rebuilding of US military bases that were destroyed in the hurricane and using that money to build his useless border wall.
  • Don't trust pundits, Elizabeth Warren is kicking ass!
  • Trump nominated Republican billionaire Darrell Issa to be the Director of the US Trade and Development Agency, but, like everyone else Trump nominated, he has a background of crime and corruption that is making it hard for him to pass his background check.
  • Republican Robert O'Brien is just another criminal work for the Criminal and Chief.
  • Brett Kavanaugh could have respected the office of Supreme Court by demanding a full investigation of his past, but that's not typical behavior for a sexual predator.
  • Trump is bombing the hell out of Middle Eastern civilians, but he has yet to bring the nation into full-scale war, so I guess that's one incredibly low bar he's passed.
  • Climate change is a serious problem, and even Republicans used to see reason, but they're bought and paid for by old rich white guys who will be dead before the really bad stuff hits.
  • Republicans do not care about state's rights.
  • Republicans have been complaining about voter fraud for years, so it seemed rather odd that "Moscow" Mitch McConnell was doing everything in his power to stop a bill that would prevent voter fraud. Of course, if you're paying attention, you know why. When Republicans say "voter fraud" they mean, non-white voters, and the election security bill would primarily prevent hackers (who are mostly foreign white people) from infiltrating voter machines. Just like with the bill to cover the health care of 9/11 first responders, it took a lot of public shaming before Moscow Mitch finally caved and agreed to fund the voter protection bill.

  • America-first Trump is ready to take the USA into a war in the Middle East just as soon as Saudi Arabia tells him to, because he's a puppet. When every US intelligence organization said in agreement that Russia had purposely and covertly interfered with the US presidential election, Obama placed sanctions on the country. Shortly after being sworn in, Trump lifted those sanctions. Now, Iran is being accused of being responsible for bombing a Saudi Arabian oil field, but the evidence it scant. So, Trump is imposing sanctions against Iran.

I've created a page for multi-genre video games.

  • Republican Brett Kavanaugh openly lied to a congressional panel and ranted and cried about how unfair it was that the allegations of sexual assault made against him by Christine Blasey Ford were allowed to be discussed. Of course, Republicans still confirmed him, despite his breakdown, and now, to add insult to injury, Republicans are awarding the Attorney General's Award for Distinguished Service to those lawyers who defended him. Republicans thought that giving a parade to a sexual predator would help his image, but it has only brought forth more allegations of sexual assault. Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale classmate of Kavanaugh's, also accused him of sexually assaulted her back in college, but the FBI is refused to investigate the list of witnesses, but now another woman has come out against Kavanaugh with a similar story and new calls for his impeachment are being made! As a fellow sexual assaulter, Trump continues to defend Kavanaugh saying it's not the women he assaulted, but Kavanaugh himself who is the real victim.
  • More details about the Bolton/Trump fiasco show Bolton offered to resign, then Trump lied about firing him. This all happened in part because Bolton wasn't being nice enough to Trump's buddy, North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un. But don't worry about nothing getting done at the White House because Trump keeps firing everyone. There are plenty in line because it's so much fun to work for Trump, or so he believes.
  • Why Trump just won't let his mistake about Alabama die.
  • Despite their disagreements, pretty much all of the Democratic hopefuls are beating Trump in the polls.

Purdue Pharma has filed for bankruptcy to protect the assets of the owners who were responsible for the opioid crisis. The problem here is, the business has been destroyed, along with all the jobs of the people who worked there, but the people who caused the problem are not being punished. Similarly, the Catholic diocese in Rochester, New York is filing for bankruptcy because of their role in protecting child-rapists.

The United Auto Workers Union has gone on strike against GM after they failed to reach a contract agreement. GM claims they just can't afford to give union members health care, yet the company made $11,800,000,000 in profit last year, and the CEO, Mary Barra, was paid just shy of $22,000,000, which is 281 times the average GM employee. Did she do 281 times the work?

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has been tracking the number of high-impact storms since 1980, and what they've discovered is they have been steadily rising and doing more damage, and human-caused climate change is to blame.

I saw Seth Andrews give a lecture last night while volunteering with CFI.

I've added a page for the Youth Group song, TJ.

  • Most of Trump's businesses hired illegal immigrants for labor, and Trump and his family knew all about it.
  • The lone black Republican who showed up at a Trump rally and was called out by Trump as "my African American," has quit the party because he doesn't like Trump's "white superiority complex."
  • When a war monger isn't despicable enough to work for Trump, you know you have a problem.
  • Republicans are comparing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a genocidal maniac in their latest smear campaign which blames socialism for the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia, which is odd, since they were Communists.
  • Donald Trump continues to shamelessly use the presidency as his own personal checkbook, and all Americans are footing the bill.

Whether it was created specifically to help slave owners or just had the side-effect of helping slave owners, the electoral college certainly helped slave owners.

Don't let the bastards grind you down

I've created a page for works of media which have a strong female character, and the opposite, a damsel in distress.

  • While trying to defend his firing of John Bolton, Trump tried to paint himself as the voice of reason, which is a horrifying thought.
  • North Carolina Republicans didn't attend a 9/11 memorial so they could secretly change a budget law that they previously lost. Why was this possible? Because Democrats were honorably attending the 9/11 memorial ceremony. Democrats weren't entirely caught off guard by this, they knew Republicans were itching to perform a secret election, and Republican David Lewis even gave his word to the Governor that they would never do something so despicable as to deface the death of American citizens and first responders with something so sordid as a budget vote. Then, they did it anyway.
  • Republicans dismiss the fact that white supremacists are a major cause of terrorism in the USA, and they frequently blame Democrats for causing mass shootings, even when the shooters are saying Trump talking points verbatim. But don't take my word for this, Republicans say so themselves. And while universal background checks are a good start, if we really want to reduce mass shootings in this country, we have to take the same common sense approach used by all the countries who have far fewer shootings, require gun owners to undergo education and licensing.
  • The many, many lies Trump has told about 9/11.
  • Republican Jason Rapert installed an illegal ten commandments monument at the Arkansas State Capitol, and then had to defend it in court. His deposition was recorded, but he doesn't want anyone to have access to it because he's afraid his own words will make him look bad.
  • How many times does Trump need to "joke" about violating term limits before it stops being a joke?
  • Republican Matt Seely made a post online claiming that The Squad is proof that America has forgotten 9/11. Just like with North Carolina, Republicans have no decorum when it comes to using the deaths of innocent civilians for their political beliefs. Seely is not only grouping liberal Muslims with the fundamental Muslim terrorists who carried out 9/11 (which is as bigoted as saying liberal Christians are the same as the Westboro Baptists), but strangely includes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the criticism despite her Judeo-Christian heritage. This is expected of Seely who, last year, also made an online post mocking women who don't accuse Republican men of sexually assaulting them within a length of time he deems appropriate.

Trump may as well be a terrorist for all the damage he's done to the nation

I beat the Game Gear and Master System ports of X-Men: Mojo World which was especially bad.

  • Just prior to the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Trump invited the Taliban to the USA.
  • Trump made a mistake when he claimed Hurricane Dorian was going to hit Alabama. The NOAA publicly contradicted him, not to be spiteful, but in order to prevent a state-wide panic. But Trump is such a petulant baby, he can't deal with anyone contradicting him, even when he's objectively wrong, so he made a huge deal over it, even altering a map with a black marker to make it look like the NOAA agreed with him. Afterward, Republican Wilbur Ross threatened to fire anyone at the NOAA who disagreed with Trump and then lied about it. We've seen this before dozens of time. Trump's cronies rush to his rescue, and up losing their credibility and reputation defending his lies.
  • After another bad report on the US economy, Trump said the Federal Reserve should offer negative interest rates to refinance debt, which I guess means he wants the US government to pay people for going into debt.
  • Republicans once again prove they are all in favor of big-government when there is a paycheck. The tobacco lobby has been attacking the vaping industry ever since it began, and Republicans are about to give them the law they so desperately crave. Remember, smoking is responsible for around 400,000 deaths in the USA each year, vaping has been linked to fewer than 10 death since it was invented, but Republicans are trying to ban vaping.
  • Crissy Teigen makes Trump look like a PresidentPussyAssBitch on Twitter.
  • UK judges have rules that Boris Johnson's Parliament shut down is illegal, but it appears to continue anyway because Conservatives never abide by laws that are inconvenient. Also, Theresa May's xenophobic law which kicked foreign students out of the UK shortly after graduating has been reversed.

Meet the Christian church in California that was busted by the FBI for kidnapping homeless people and turned them into slaves.

I beat the Master System port of Mickey's Ultimate Challenge. Terrible game!

  • Trump promised Mexico would pay for his useless border wall, and now he stealing the money from the US military and US disaster relief.
  • Another one bites the dust! Trump's unqualified pro-war anti-foreigner National Security Advisor, Republican John Bolton, is out of the White House. Bolton says he offered his resignation because Trump is so difficult to work with, while Trump claims he fired Bolton for not agreeing with him enough. The departure is especially embarrassing for Republicans who now have to find a -fourth- replacement for yet another job that won't get done.
  • Remember when Trump stupidly claimed that Alabama was going to be hit by Hurricane Dorian, and then wouldn't admit he made a mistake, and then Republicans threatened to fire anyone who said he was wrong? And now he's going full-on nationalist and refusing to help Bahamian hurricane victims calling them very bad gang members and drug dealers. Yeah, that's how he is all the time.
  • The only reason we know that Russia attempted to hack Florida voting machines just prior to the 2016 presidential election is because of a US veteran and military translator, Reality Winner. Republicans were trying their best to keep the Russian digital invasion a secret in order to protect Trump, but Winner heroically and selflessly acted as a whistle-blower to make the Republican cover-up known to all. Sadly, Winner has just sentenced to over 5 years in prison for her brave deeds.
  • Benjamin Netanyahu, is seeking reelection as the Prime Minister of Israel, and he made the extremely shocking claim to invade and conquer large sections of Palestine with the cooperation of Trump and the US military!
  • Under Republican control, the EPA has stopped enforcing rules that protect children against lead paint.
  • Republican Kerry Roberts thinks America's problems can be solved by simply banning colleges and universities.
  • The UK government failed to allow Boris Johnson a new vote and it is now officially shut down for over a month. Their Parliament is protesting, and now Johnson either has to go back to the EU with his tail between his legs and beg for more time or do something drastic to get a no deal exit which would be a serious blow to the UK. So, just like in the USA, the ultra-conservative party is hell-bent on ruining everything because they really hate foreigners.

Over the weekend I took out a ground wasp nest and beat the Master System port of Castle of Illusion. I've also greatly updated my list of candies.

  • US military intelligence had to extract one of our highest-ranking spies out of Russia in part because they believed Trump's reckless blabbering of top secret information to the public, and especially to Russian diplomats, would get him discovered and tortured to death. The spy is now safely out of Russia, but the US has lost one of its most important informants into their regime, all because Trump can't keep his fat mouth shut!
  • The Republican White House is so openly corrupt right now that companies aren't even trying to hide the fact that they're willing to donate to Trump in order to eliminate keep safety watchdogs at bay.
  • After enough people complained about Trump's obvious corruption with using the position of President to traffic business to his hotels, even when they're 180 miles away from the intended destination, the Air Force is performing a review. Nothing will happen because of it, but it's nice to see the illusion of accountability.
  • Trump is even forcing the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to agree with his bonehead Alabama hurricane mistake.
  • No matter how much Republicans deny it, climate change is a serious threat, and only the Democrats seem prepared to address it. Meanwhile, the Amazon burns.
  • The bright future for those who have been forced to resigned from Trump's regime.

Better check your crystal ball again!

Last night I beat both the Game Gear and Master System ports of Aladdin. I also created a page for the Game Gear.

  • Trump just can't let it go and continues to lie about hurricane Dorian hitting Alabama.
  • Like rats leaving a sinking ship.
  • Republican Mike Pence, staunch LGBT hater, and US Vice President, went to Iceland where the people greeting him with a whole bunch of gay-pride flags!
  • If universal background checks were enforced, the Texas shooter wouldn't have been able to buy his gun.
  • It's nice to see the UK is fighting back against their ultra-Conservative leader. Let's just hope he doesn't ruin the country on his way to the bottom.

Drew Brees explains that he doesn't hate LGBT people shortly after staring in a commercial for a Christian hate group that actively abuses LGBT people.

I added a page for the secular humanist perspective on death.

  • After looking like a complete imbecile once again, by endless lying about never hearing about a category five hurricane, and assuring America that Dorian will hit Alabama. Trump could have simply said, "oops my mistake," but, he chose the path of the psychopath and added his own projection to a map to include Alabama!
  • Republicans once again tried to take away the press pass of a journalist, and a federal judge once again said what they did was illegal.
  • Republican Joe Balash used his government position to push for more Arctic oil drilling. Immediately after resigning, he was hired by an Arctic oil drilling company. It's almost as if Republicans are selling out their country.
  • After is came out that lenders were using predatory tactics to trick students into loans they could never hope to pay back, Congress created the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. However, since those in charge are the same people who own these predatory lenders, people like Republican Betsy DeVos, they're doing everything in their power to ruin the program including denying loan forgiveness to 99% of the applicants!
  • Ultra-Conservative Boris Johnson is messing up the UK government so badly, his own brother has resigned!

I also beat the Game Boy Color game Babe and Friends and added a category for video game tie-ins.

  • The US military has far too much money anyway, but at least they could have used it for something like taking care of soldiers, but, no, Republicans collaborated to take $3,600,000,000 from them to waste on a border wall.
  • The inverted yield curve has predicted an impending recession accurately for every recession in the last 50 years, and, with Trump destroying the economy, it's no surprise we're seeing one now. But what exactly is an inverted yield curve?
  • A UK judge tells the UK Conservative party, you can't just shut down the government to get what you want. If only American judges had the gumption to do the same thing!
  • Full Frontal's recap on climate change and the Republicans who refuse to even acknowledge the existence of scientists.
  • Trump once again disagrees with an entire field of science by claiming he knows more about hurricanes than all meteorologists.

Over the weekend I beat the Game Boy game Double Dragon II.

  • Trump once again inadvertently revealed top secret US military secrets to the entire world. This time, he posted images from a secret US surveillance satellite, one that the US public is not supposed to know anything about, and certainly US adversaries aren't supposed to know anything about, but now they know a great deal!
  • There was yet another mass shooting. No, not the 17-year-old who injured 10 people when he opened fire at an Alabama football game, not the 14-year-old boy who murdered all five members of his family. No, I'm referring to the Texan who injured 22 people and killed seven more, including a toddler who he shot in the face. Texas Republicans responded by voting to weakening eight different gun control laws. Republican Matt Schaefer, who religiously opposes any form of gun control, even preventing violent criminals from having guns, blames the shooting on a lack of thoughts and prayers.
  • Republicans are so openly-corrupt, they're going well out of their way to stay at Trump's hotels in order to make him money at the taxpayer's expense.
  • Randy Rainbow sings Cheeto Christ Stupid-Czar.
  • Part of me is happy to see the UK continue to crash and burn over Brexit because it means the US isn't the only country with ignorant bigots, but then I remember that two collapsing super powers isn't exactly a good thing for global stability.
