Traitors Who Profit

Perhaps I should be grateful to all of these folks from the former guy's administration who are putting out books, each one more putrid than the last, citing the many crimes and treasonous acts perpetrated in the name of the United States of America during those horrible four years.

Or maybe I should be grateful to Steve Schmidt, a former Republican and founder of the Lincoln Project, for just now pointing out links between the McCain campaign and Russia.

The threads weave in and out, a tapestry of lies, deceit, deception, and corruption. An afghan throw knitted so deep and so tightly that it would smother the flames of Hell, if I believed in Hell.

But I am not grateful. The people who need to read these words, the people who need to see these connections, will either (a) not read them, or (b) find them entirely appropriate.

And these writers are profiting off of words that should have been said long ago.

Here's a list of some of the books:

Bob Woodward’s Fear

Katy Tur’s Unbelievable

Sinking in the Swamp, by reporters Lachlan Markay and Asawin Suebsaeng

Other books by aides like Cliff Sims, Sean Spicer, and John Bolton

Nightmare Scenario, by Washington Post reporters Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Paletta

The Wall Street Journal’s Michael Bender published Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost, which includes information that the former guy wanted the military to “beat the f***” out of Americans protesting last summer for racial justice, and to “crack their skulls.”

I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year, from Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker. They also wrote A Very Stable Genius.

Michael Wolff authored Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency. He also wrote Fire and Fury, which the former guy tried to suppress. He'd also written Siege: Trump Under Fire in 2019.

Then there's Jonathan Karl’s Betrayal, a tell-all about the final weeks of the Trump presidency.

And more.

The thing is, while much of this information was reported in tiny little stories in newspapers that no one reads anymore, the public missed it. This information was there and available even as the nation was being flushed down the proverbial toilet.

No one paid attention.

And frankly, it is frustrating to the nth degree that these threads and weaves were not made more public.

And it is even more frustrating that the public is still not paying attention, is still running rampage under some fuming crowd sickness, a fugue state that has gripped at least a third of the nation and turned them into cult zombies who cannot think for themselves. They do not realize that not only are they jeopardizing their own futures, but they are also totally demolishing any hope their children might have had of living a decent and tolerable life.

I'm not talking about the Republican Party. The Republican Party that I knew - the one my father and my brother still think they belong to as businessmen - does not exist any longer. It has been taken over by a rabid wave of fascist evangelical lunatics who are, at the least, the equivalent of an American Taliban. A group of people who think things are fine so long as what one does is something they agree with. And if you're different, or don't agree with them, then you become other, as if it were you (the Democrat, the LBGQT, the teacher, the firefighter, the police officer, the black person, the Native American, whoever, really) who had turned into some frothing werewolf, when the reality is, they are the ones living now in an alternate world, a world that doesn't recognize reality and doesn't know it when it hits them upside the head with a voting machine.

While so many are busy trying to redo the 2020 election - STILL - I want someone to investigate the 2016 election.

Because I think that one was the one that was rigged. That one was the one that gave us Putin's puppet, and let the hounds of hell loose, leaving the rest of us to sit and try to furiously crochet our way out of the fires of hell on earth.

And as for these assholes who are profiting off of knowledge that should have been shouted from rooftops and made public years ago, even a decade ago, if not longer, shame on you. You are no American.

You're a fucking traitor.


  1. I completely agree. Part of the problem with the press, I think, is that it's owned by those rich assholes who are doing well in this system, so it behooves them to keep us in the dark. So, these stories that should have gotten more press were buried so as to keep the status quo. I wonder if this is what it was like living in Germany in the '30s.

  2. I'm with you. I was a Republican for most of my life, and they've totally lost me. What happened to separation of church and state? I love church in general, but they are not supposed to be making the government do what they want them to. I've said for years that contributions to churches should be taxed, but I keep my mouth shut about that to people I go to church with, because.... well, they just couldn't stand to hear it. And they are my friends. I don't want to turn them against me.
