Years ago, early 2017 to be precise, I was so disgusted with the Executive Orders being rammed through, particularly about immigration, that I started up a website to track them and the many lawsuits challenging them. Not long into the administration, I gave up on tracking, it was beyond a full time job. About the same time, the White House phone comment line closed (I’d been leaving comments often) and the switchboard would not forward any calls to anyone or take a message, and then the White House website dropped the entire section on Executive Orders. GONE!

Recently someone wrote saying that a link I’d posted wasn’t working, well DUH, it was from when there was a White House Executive Actions page, with Orders and Memoranda. But I looked, and of course the Federal Register page is still there, but there’s now an Archive preserving the Executive Orders!

TRUMP PRESIDENTIAL ACTIONS ARCHIVE

Note the caveat at the top — this is just ONE of the EOs that were disappeared:

The “person” who let me know that the link I had posted didn’t work I think was a bot or ? trying to get me to click on something malevolent. Just no… stick to the Federal Register.

Can someone explain how this ASSet was ever elected to office? And so many have not acknowledge their complicity, much less done anything to fix this mess. Worse are those U.S. electeds shouting out their support for Putin! As if the yahoos weren’t bad enough… Makes me nauseous…

I’d ordered House of Trump House of Putin (check this review, mostly noting it’s a rehash of old news) when it came out, some time in 2018, but it’s sat virtually unopened, only 60 some pages waded through. Why? Ages ago I had a U.S. and Soviet policy class at Metro State, circa 1988 or ’89, and it was dreadful, for some reason my brain takes to that as it does to algebra, it’s utterly unworkable, grey mush where grey matter should be. I barely squeaked through. I couldn’t bring myself to read this book.

This weekend, I am. A rehash of old news? It’s news that needs to see the light of day, right now, as Putin’s army stomps into Ukraine. We need to address the connections of Trump to Putin, to Trump’s influence over U.S. policy, of Trump’s ham-handed attempt at extortion of Ukraine, etc., etc., etc. How can anyone forget, or make light of, the public on-camera “RUSSIA, IF YOU’RE LISTENING…

Then when living in Delaware part-time, after a trip to Atlantic City and seeing the bombed out look of the place, I got this book, Temples of Chance, which deals a lot with Trump and his ties to organized crime (note money laundering theme running through both books), and that did not have the same soporific effect as U.S./Soviet policy, maybe it’s David Cay Johnston’s writing (he twits a lot too):

Anyway, pulled out and dusted off House of Trump House of Putin, and can’t put it down. EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS. Old news? Sure, but necessary details to dredge up, details that should have been blurted non-stop leading up to the 2016 election. How the hell did that disaster ever happen?

You can pick it up at abebooks.com and it’s CHEAP!

Probable cause hearing is next Monday.

Who is Tammi Jeka? She’s the woman who was doing donuts on the St. Paul Capitol lawn:

I have conflicting thoughts about this. It is framed as “mentally ill and chemical dependent” case type. Her thinking is clearly dysfunctional, but to brand waskadoodle tRumpists with “mental illness” labeling is off. This delusional dysfunctional thinking is different, but I don’t have the knowledge or training to explain. To me, it seems that intervention is necessary, and that it’s more of a chemical dependency affliction, which is the other part of the “case type” above. I’ve read some articles along this line, will try to find. We’ll see how this plays out.

Here it is, read it and SNORT!
