Did Trump use Ronan Farrow to take down ex-AG Eric Schneiderman?

Image
Donald Trump and Eric Schneiderman have had a tense relationship for a long time. Years.


A new story has broken out in the media about two women having been 'sexually victimized' by the ex Attorney General. Their stories date back to 2012-2013 when their lawyer, Peter J Gleason thought it would be a good idea to convey his clients' vicissitudes to Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen  back then. And this is where things become murky. What were Gleason's intentions to pass on this information to Cohen for Donald Trump? It does not sound like this man gives a fuck about the #metoo movement. According to this article, Peter Gleason swings 'right'. Sure, I have no evidence of Gleason's party affiliation as such, but I am 'deducing' it because of the photograph of him next to Sara Palin which features the caption 'Backstage with my old friend from Alaska, Sarah Palin.' No member of the Dem Party would describe Palin as a friend, surely? Here …

Is this the age of Enlightenment?

Image
While so many people believe 'Enlightenment' to be a moment of happiness as you reach wisdom while unicorns fly around spitting confetti and glitter, I am confident that intrinsically, it isn't a positive experience.

Remember Buddha left his life of privilege when he reached Enlightenment as he understood the meaning of existence - pain and suffering - to pursue a life of humility in order to inspire and educate others.

Remember any of the realisations you have ever had in your life about whoever you gave a shit about that you thought was a good friend / partner / relative and instead turned out to be a coward / psychopath / asshole? It's not pleasant. Sometimes, when the penny drops, it feels more like a rock than a small coin.

We're all going through the age of Enlightenment now - whether energized by the verbal diarrhea of the P.O.T.U.S. (Piece Of Turd Unhinged Shithead) in the White House that no amount of Imodium could ever cure or the loyal support he still g…

What the fuck is wrong with Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Mark Halperin, Bill O'Reilly, Donald Trump?

Former television anchor, Heather Unruh has just held a press conference to make public the horrid news that Kevin Spacey assaulted her 18-year-old son in a public place last year.

Kevin Spacey and the long list of celebrity assholes in this blog title are beyond redemption.

Glad they're all being exposed. I don't care about House Of Cards or anything these sick fuckers have worked on. They need to face up to the fact that they are a menace to society.

Democrats, Socialists and populists sweep the elections...

... #FuckTrump has never been so real. He is on his way down, once and for all. Watch this space.

From The Intercept:

"A civil rights attorney who delights in suing the police is the new district attorney in Philadelphia. A democratic socialist shocked an incumbent Republican in Virginia. A black woman who prosecuted a white cop for shooting a black teen was re-elected as prosecutor. Three months after Charlottesville, a black lieutenant governor was elected in Virginia. A trans woman who focused on traffic problems knocked out a longtime culture warrior who focused on bathrooms. A criminal justice reformer flipped the Washington state Senate to Democrats. A wet bag of mulch beat a race-baiting lobbyist in Virginia by a stunning nine points. Maine voters expanded Medicaid. Long-held Republican seats in Georgia flipped in a special election. New Jersey, finished with Chris Christie, elected a Democrat in a landslide."

Last night's election was a referendum on Trump. Last y…

The Democratic Party's Resistance against Donald Trump - pot calling the kettle black

Image
A recent article in CNN that I stumbled upon earlier today discussed yet another superficial issue. That of Kellyann Conway tweeting about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz not standing up and clapping for the widow of a slain Navy SEAL during Donald Trump's address to Congress on Tuesday night.

First of all - fuck you, CNN for commissioning articles about trivial matters.

Second of all - fuck you, Kellyann Conway for having anything to do with this administration at all. Your derelict concern for anything other than pleasing your President has worn thin.

Third - fuck you twice, CNN for asking Debbie Wasserman-Schultz whether Kellyann Conway had apologised. And fuck you twice, DWS for responding with 'Of course, she hasn't apologised, because that's their M.O.'

TALK ABOUT THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK.

This article was posted on the 'Overtime with Bill Maher''s page on Facebook and I did not even read it until I decided to write this post because...I don'…

From classical and heavy metal music to local and national politics - no rest for the wan...wicked!

Image
Been busy on various fronts - from politics to music, it's been a frantic, but exciting couple of months.

Been producing two videos for a classical music event called The Baldwin Festival. Based on the shockingly inspiring sermon done by the Pope at Madison Square Garden in 2015, the whole composition called 'A Great Light' is a collaboration between composer Martin Sedek and conductor Douglas Sheldon. A truly beautiful masterpiece. I'll upload as soon as I'm given the go-ahead. 

Produced a short video teaser for the Avenged Sevenfold's pop-up store in London (with limited resources). Here it is: 


After the shocking upset of Trump's win (!), I went back into edit for what I expected to be slight amendments to the beginning of the documentary about the Bernie Sanders' grassroots campaign, 'The In-Team NYC'. I ended up changing more than the intro. 

Been out to protest with and without Ellie. The first protest with Ellie was 'Trump's Healthcar…

Why has Trump pissed off a million women? About the #WomensMarch

Image
Earlier on Facebook, I came across a post by my friend, Gwen who was wondering something about President Trump. Three days after his Inauguration and two days after the #WomensMarch that attracted two million people in the US alone and over one million in countries such as the United Kingdom, the whole of Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden, Denmark), Italy, Germany , France while outside of Europe, in Asia, Australia and even Antarctica.


Here are Gwen's questions:-"I really don't know what Trump did to piss off a million women. What has he done or what part of his agenda should I be concerned about as a woman? Which decisions don't reflect the will of the people? What has he said that's divisive?" While she did not vote for Trump in the primaries, Gwen is not the only Republican who's wondering about all this. And though I am very aware that liberals and conservatives may have differing views, they both have a tendency to find the opposite party's ideas highl…

Chuck Schumer suddenly sounds COOL - how is that possible?!

Image
While some members of the Left are still getting all indignant about what media we should / shouldn't watch / read / listen to and are still holding grudges against more established Dem politicians, Bernie Sanders is working his way through the Bag of Dicks (Dem) Party. As in, he is working to CHANGE IT, to make it MORE VIABLE for / more IN TUNE with the middle and working class(es) 'cos let's be honest, so far, the Dem Party has acted like a detached bag of dicks. 



When I see Chuck Schumer on the Rachel Maddow Show being all fired up about opposing Trump and 'holding his feet to the fire' with regards to anything he said during his campaign (his promises to benefit the middle / working class), I see Bernie WORKING TO CHANGE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.



When I hear Senator Schumer use an expression like 'we'll hold his feet to the fire' several times, I hear Bernie Sanders WORKING TO CHANGE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. When I hear Sen. Schumer talk about what Bernie Sa…

The Struggle Continues...and it's all over the place - Part I

Image
Bernie Sanders inspired millions of people to get off their sofas, turn off their TVs and join the political revolution in the streets and on social media, but he did not educate the younger ones to what it would be really like if they did not vote for Hillary Clinton in the general elections.

There are two main points on this: 1) Sanders, who used to communicate with his grassroots' people and donors via email during the primaries, somehow did not think that explaining why he was endorsing Clinton to his supporters directly by email would be a big deal (this happened a few days before the Democratic Convention in July); 2) He forgot to educate the ones with less political experience on the difference between getting all hopped up during a primary and toning it down once your candidate does not get the nomination. It was like being in fifth gear and being asked to drop down to first all of a sudden. You're going to have to deal with the physical discomfort of that sudden chang…

There are two main points on this: 1) Sanders, who used to communicate with his grassroots' people and donors via email during the primaries, somehow did not think that explaining why he was endorsing Clinton to his supporters directly by email back in July (a few days before the Convention); 2) He forgot to educate the ones with less political experience that there is a difference between getting all hopped up during a primary and toning it down once your candidate does not get the nomination.

I'd put myself in that category (of the uneducated 'young' people) and I am 45. For months, I'd learned that no matter what the media said about what Sen. Sanders might do, he would ne…

Donald J Trump and those 'Russian hackers' isn't the focus and the public is being manipulated

Image
I first heard Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook talk about 'Russian hackers' delivering the DNC emails to the public in order to aid the Trump campaign last week. Then the Obama administration jumped onto it and the media is now covering it like it is reality. Then, Trump held a press conference to defend himself from those allegations and now, he is the bad guy.
The truth as I see it - NOBODY has come out to confirm that 'Russian hackers', indeed, infiltrated the DNC email server. Yet. But everyone - Clinton campaign, Obama administration, the media and their dog - is peddling this story like they all have evidence. This is done to deflect from the real threat - the DNC emails content - it caused the DNC's CFO to apologize (on Facebook LOL!) and DNC's Chair, Debbie W-S to resign (only to be hired by the Clinton campaign a couple of hours later). 

The Head of the DNC, the President - Obama at this moment - has not addressed his own party's t…
