Sunday Morning Post (V.1, #23): End of the Month (June 2019) Satire Clearance

At the G-20 Summit in Japan, the President mockingly berated Vladimir Putin for interfering in American elections.  The President wagged his finger at the Russian dictator and said, “Don’t meddle in our elections.”  Putin and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo laughed.

Well, that should show him!  Proof once again that America means business when it comes to foreign interference in our affairs.

Yeah right.  This administration is already planning on turning on its back, putting its paws in the air, and looking excitedly for Vladimir Putin to rub its belly.  Good dog, America, good dog!

I really want to report that the opening anecdote was the satirical part of the story, but it actually happened.  I must be getting old.  I remember when we had Presidents who took seriously the American democracy, they were charged with protecting. Sad!

Given our historical attitudes towards Russia, its successor the Soviet Union, and Russia again, I find my next comment most ironic and progressive political heresy:  where is Joseph McCarthy now that we need him?  He would be a good voice to hear now warning us about the dangers of cozying up to a dictatorship.

And another White House anecdote from the past month...

White House spokesperson Kellyanne Conway was determined to have violated the Hatch Act, which limits federal government employees from engaging in certain political activities.  The President announced that he would not fire Conway or request her resignation.

It is now official: the Republican Party is no longer the party of law and order.  Any other President would have demanded a resignation.  Hell, any person with a modicum of integrity would have fallen on the sword and left government service voluntarily.

Yeah, I see the flaw in the logic of my last sentence.  What am I thinking?

Time to fire up the torches and take to the streets.  I say, “Lock her up! Lock her up!  Lock her…”  Huh?  Oh yes, that’s now a cliché.  Too bad.  Too sad.

Let’s go full pirate mode: “Arrgh!  Make the wench walk the plank!”

The President’s second White House Press Secretary in two years, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, finally left her position months after she said she was leaving.   Sanders was treated to a going away party and quoted as saying that she leaves her position at the White House with her head held high.

Note to self:  will need to research the New Testament to find the passage where Jesus said to the multitudes: “Be good to each other, treat everyone as you would want to be treated, and if you sin, deny, deny, deny!”

A going away party for the person who was the chief enabler for the Pathological-Liar-In-Chief?   WTF!

Arrgh!  Make this wench walk the plank, too!  Let’s have a double header!

(Thank you for reading.   Arrgh, arrgh, arrgh! And harrumph!)

Are we sure Huck is gone? i mean, maybe this is just another one of her lies ....
As for Conway the CryptKeeper, perhaps she has something on _____? Pictures of Russian Hoolers?

Pirates would have a greater sense of honour and integrity than that lot in the White House these days.

The Republicans have not cared about Democracy for years. You no longer hear talk about Democracy any more, just like you no longer hear them talk about Family Values.

We're keeping our fingers crossed that Huckster won't return. Thank you, Bob.

Thank you, Debra. You're right. Even pirates lived by a "code."

Thank you Dave. Yes, the "family values" schtick was always good for a giggle.
