#BLOTUS and his Flying Monkeys

Earlier this morning I read that Robert Mueller’s team has added over a dozen new attorneys to help dig deeper into the malfeasance and corruption at the heart of Trump’s circle. Now, the president’s personal lawyer, following the wise move of Vice President Pence, has hired another lawyer to represent him. When lawyers hire lawyers they know it is about to get real.

Trump is single-handedly attempting to kick-start the economy by providing more jobs for lawyers. I don’t care how many flying monkeys the #Blotus lets fly, the Hounds of Justice are coming after him, and he can feel them getting ever closer.

Loose the Hounds!

I am only 70 years old, but I have to say that never, let me repeat that, NEVER have I seen any politician whine as much as the #BLOTUS. He is a spoiled, petulant brat that has never grown up.

He lies about the lies he lied to cover up the lies he lied about the lies. Then he whines about fake news and witch hunts.

All his ill-gotten wealth cannot buy enough lawyers to keep him out of the sights of all the investigators on his slimy trail. He is close to being treed by the hounds of justice.

I m currently editing a children’s book on ways to help the hungry. When I saw this, IĀ again realized that helping others, serving others, living for others are all at the core of changing the world and achieving true justice. That’s true for all of us, and not just children.

Whenever those in power seek to secretly take away the benefits of over 22 million of our citizens they need to be held accountable. A plan so obviously flawed, so heavy weighted with huge tax breaks for the already obscenely rich, is not good for our nation.

Such a bill is definitely good in the eyes of the powerful and wealthy elite. But such a bill is morally repugnant, like those who crafted it and are trying to fast-track it through the Senate. Like their greed and their hubris, their shame has no limits.

A Prayer of St. Augustine

Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy. Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy. Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy. Amen.

M. A. G. A.

The only thing more confusing than how the #BLOTUS got into office is how he stays there. Is there no limit to the blind allegiance the GOP base will offer this family? Maybe he did actually tell the truth (once) when he bragged about being able to shoot down someone in broad daylight and still have the support of his base.
