Just a few years ago, before Donald Trump asked Ukrainian President Zelenskyy for an infamous favor and brought the spotlight on Ukraine, this is how I viewed the country.
It was The Ukraine. I’m not sure why, since it makes no sense. It’s not The Greece or The Canada. Why The Ukraine? No idea, but it sounded correct.
The capital city was two-syllable Kiev.
Ukrainians elected a comedian as president. How could they be taken seriously? Yes, a similar argument can be made about the USA in 2016, but that’s a blog post for another day that has already been written by many and read by millions.
Ukrainian national clothing was colorful.
The Ukraine was part of the former USSR, so could they really be trusted? Aren’t they likely in cahoots with Russia?
We have a Ukrainian Village neighborhood in Chicago, so maybe that means they’re okay and can be trusted after all.
I had no idea why The Ukraine was important economically.
I realize that some of you may not be able to or may not have the desire to translate. Right mite ends with, “Freedom!” Left mite replies by saying, “Mite Be Patriotic,” although it can also be translated as “Tick Be Patriotic,” which doesn’t work quite as well. The bottom line is that we support Ukraine as they are invaded by Putin’s army.
If you wish to donate to relief efforts, please do. I’m as much of a pacifist as anyone, but I want to arm the Ukrainian military. That’s what Ukrainian President Zelenskyy has requested – money for armaments. Why the USA has not flooded Ukraine with weapons is beyond me. But here’s how you can donate directly to the Ukrainian military through the National Bank of Ukraine.
I was in a rhyming, but bad mood about Trump knowing about Russian bounties on American soldiers’ heads as I walked this morning. The only thing that kept me from screaming was that I was also picking berries as I walked. Anyway, here it is …
The poem is a pic, so feel free to save and share.
I’ve been very busy with my medical equipment business recently. The hard work has paid off. Today I secured a large order from a Swiss customer who is buying equipment they will pick-up in Germany for shipment to Russia (no collusion!). The payment will be made by the Swiss customer in euros to my bank account in the UK that will be converted to US dollars and sent to my bank account in the USA so that my LLC can access the funds. I feel a bit like international business magnate Donald Trump, but without the criminality. Oh, sorry, I just noticed I spelled maggot wrong in that last sentence.
I’m confused, which everyone who has ever read this blog already knows. I think Donald Trump is correct when he complains about ‘Fake News.’ I am starting to believe it exists.
Take this video from Judge Jeanine Pirro from Fox News on Michael Flynn. You may want to skip to the very end where Pirro suggests that Judge Sullivan could throw out Flynn’s guilty plea.
Did you watch the whole video? Did you throw up in your mouth just a bit in parts like I did? Understandable. This “judge throws out Flynn’s guilty plea due to FBI wrongdoing” narrative had been pushed by Fox News and White House talking heads for a while. Instead, Judge Emmet Sullivan, a Reagan appointee, excoriated Flynn in a blistering diatribe to the point of dropping the treason bomb as a possible additional charge. Oops.
If you are reading this blog post while wearing a ball gag and handcuffs, I am sorry to tell you that you have been misled by the title. I am talking about fantasy football domination in my family league like this …
Can I get a booyah for a shutout?
Thank you. I don’t know which one of my Trump-loving relatives runs that Bye team (and what a terrible name for a fantasy football team with no logo whatsoever), but that team sucks. They scored nothing against me last week. Total fantasy domination.
But that was last week, and I only have a couple more weeks left in the season to tweak the Trump-lovers in my family fantasy football league with clever team names and logos like last week’s Collusionistas.
I wanted to hammer (and sickle) the Russian connection more, so here is my new team logo …
Yesterday, we all decided that I was well-suited to forge a new career as a spy. But for what country or group? ISIS would be easy. They’ll recruit any nutjob like me. Well, I certainly am NOT going to be doing any spying for ISIS for one very important reason.
Donald Trump is a guy who has repeatedly claimed that he never would divulge his military strategy, I think mainly because he typically doesn’t have one. Now that bombing Syria looks like an option, Trump is only too willing to share that with the world …
Although we recently broke a Trump cover-up story for our readers, we now have some proof that Donald Trump does not lie … at least about his hair. It is definitely his own. If you haven’t seen this yet, take a look …
I want to extend my congratulations to Donald Trump on the birth of his new grandson, whose arrival was of course tweeted out …
In related news, Trump’s lead lawyer in the Russia investigation, Ty Cobb, said that the newest Trump has no knowledge of anything Russian and would be unavailable to Robert Mueller for testimony regarding the Russia investigation for at least a year. Expected godfather “Uncle” Felix Sater was unavailable for comment.

This was a great Made In America Week, celebrating the USA’s production capability. We are grateful for Donald Trump’s contribution to USA production, although that may sound counter-intuitive since just about everything with a Trump name on it such as all of Ivanka’s fashion line and Trump’s golf paraphernalia is made outside the USA, except for those crappy MAGA caps.
I was thrilled to hear that the Trump Russia investigation has expanded to include former Trump campaign adviser Boris Epshteyn. Well, about freakin’ time. He is obviously a Russian spy. How do I know? Well, he’s named Boris, which is a classic Russian spy name. Just think about any Boris that you may have heard of before.
Recent news reports tell me that Donald Trump gave away intelligence to the Russians. Based on what I have seen so far, I do not think he can afford to give away any intelligence. He needs all he has left in his addled mind.
