***This Post is to any and all persons who have contact with the individuals known as dhictatr & repurbwoodart, who have embarked upon a campaign to smear their critics as child molesters. I am doing this as a much needed public service***
Along with making this a matter of public record, I have blocked both dhictatr and refurbwoodart whose vicious campaign to smear me as a child molester has already been reported and additionally, I have sent copies of their posts along as evidence. Ordinarily, I don't resort to such actions but as a public service, I am, alerting all of you to their actions so that if they try the same thing with any of you--and Chronology, also, was smeared in the same way---then you will know what to do about it. So far, Wire Club hasn't done anything about it but now that they have hard evidence in their possession, maybe they'll get off their asses and take appropriate measures,.
These are dangerous, deranged and utterly despicable people who have resorted to the ugliest charges that one person could make against another, and, for the record, they have produced NO EVIDENCE to substantiate their baseless charges. The very fact that I should even have to defend myself against this venomous allegation is depressing and lamentable but I did it as a public service and also, because there is every chance that they will try it again with somebody else. There's no reason to think that they won't. At least I can block them and not have to be subjected to this vile and hateful trash. Let's see just how seriously Wire Club takes their TOS rules and regulations. Thus far, their response has been, at the very least, anemic and ineffectual.

MJ59: This is gunna be a biggie
“What did the President know and when did he know it?” is among the most famous quotes from the Watergate hearings—and it's become the definitional question of the current crisis.
The New York Times has published a timeline detailing the intelligence reports about the coronavirus waved off by Donald Trump and his economic advisors going back as early as January. It shows an administration consistent in putting the interests of Wall Street ahead of the interests of public health, a struggle still raging as Trump decides when to ease restrictions on social distancing and reopen the economy.
The National Center for Medical Intelligence, part of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Department were sounding the alarm about the virus spreading from Wuhan, China in early January. The Times reports that Trump’s economic advisors tamped down their reports so as not to upset the negotiations of a trade deal with Beijing.
Later in January Peter Navarro, one of Trump’s top advisors, wrote a memo stating that a virus could cause trillions of dollars in damage and result in 500,000 deaths. It argued for swift travel limits with China.
Trump has denied seeing this memo, but reports show that Navarro’s concerns were indeed raised. The Times reported that Trump was displeased that Navarro had put his thoughts into writing.
In early February, public health officials in the Trump administration had put together a strategy that included social distancing, school closures and shelter-in-place suggestions, but were unable to present these to the president. The reason, it is believed, is due to Trump’s frustration at a Centers of Disease Control official who made public statements “too soon,” sending the stock market into a plunge.
As such, Trump did not recommend aggressive distancing measures for an additional three weeks. During this time, the virus spread virtually unimpeded in densely populated areas like New York, which, as of Sunday morning, has over 181,000 cases of Covid-19 and 8,650 confirmed deaths.
During these first two months of the year, a group of infectious disease experts and doctors, many of them within the Trump administration, were in a group email chain called Red Dawn, a reference to the John Milius film in which a group of teens band together to save America from an invasive threat. (Yes, this is likely the first time C. Thomas Howell has played a key role in public policy.)
According to the Times “the officials repeatedly expressed concern about the lack of aggressive action to deal with the virus.”
The wedge on how to deal with coronavirus between entrenched individuals working in public service, the so-called Deep State, and Donald Trump was finally acknowledged by the president when he yukked it up on March 20th, inspiring Dr. Anthony Fauci’s facepalm seen ‘round the world.

I Hate Trump’s Awful Policies, But I Love That He’s a Huge Asshole
by Teddy Wayne
Look, everyone makes compromises when they vote for a politician. Democrats ignored Bill Clinton’s philandering because they liked the job he was doing. I’m pretty much the same, though I bet you think there’s something wrong about it simply because I’m a Trump supporter. The truth is, I don’t like Trump’s policies — can’t stand them, in fact. But I hold my nose and tolerate them, because what I really care about is the fact that he’s a huge asshole.
Let’s start with Trump’s tax cuts. Far from serving his supposedly populist platform, they’re clearly entrenching a kleptocratic plutocracy. But I’m willing to take them if it means we get a president who’s a complete fucking idiot. Someone really, profoundly stupid who doesn’t comprehend what capital letters and quotations marks are for. After eight years of a professorial, know-it-all wonk who understands economics beyond the word “deal,” it’s refreshing to see the Oval Office occupied by a stone-cold dumbass.
Bottom line, he’s exactly what America needs right now: a business moron.
What do I think about his slashing of environmental regulations? It’s a catastrophe waiting to happen, of course. I shudder when I think about the savage wars my children will be conscripted for in the coming years over water and wheat. It’s absolutely worth dying a few decades earlier, however, for a little bitch-ass POTUS who gets into Twitter fights with sitcom stars. Say what you will about his subsidizing corporations to put poison in baby food, but that’s the tradeoff you have to make for a prick of a commander-in-chief who uses schoolyard nicknames so often they come up in his phone as predictive text. Sure, the far-right executive actions are frightening and dystopian, but Trump’s character is rock-ribbed, dyed-in-the-wool shitstain.
At the end of the day, no matter your political persuasion, you just want a president who has the two main ingredients of a great leader: being a petty twat with no real friends.
Don’t let the president or anyone else tell you different: immigrants are this nation. I don’t like Trump’s immigration laws; they’re racist and economically disastrous. But I do love how evil he is. What’s more, he’s surrounded himself with the country’s greatest evildoers—an assembly of superbly hideous anal abscesses. It’s inspiring to see a bloated septuagenarian shithead following the dictates of a soulless millennial fuckfaced tool who gets a hard-on only when he sees small children in cages. Trump’s cruelty doesn’t stop with the foreign toddlers he’s orphaned, either. When he mocks the weight of someone at his campaign rally whom he mistakenly believes to be a protestor and who is, in fact, fitter than he is, it just shows you what a once-in-a-lifetime cocksucker he is, spraying his jackassery in every direction like bullets from an assault rifle he refuses to ban because, once again, he’s a terrible person, which is why he’ll always have my vote. The moment he taunted John McCain for being captured in a war that he dodged through a fake injury, I knew Trump was my guy — just a total dick, you know? He stands up for the things he believes in, such as himself and nothing else. He’s the politician I’d want to have a beer with so I could listen to him talk shit about everyone we know, and then he’d order two cheeseburgers just for him and stiff me with the bill, and then I’d realize later that he definitely talks shit behind my back, too.
I’m not surprised he makes fun of his own kids, when he’s able to remember their names. What a shriveled ball sack of a man. That’s what we’ve been missing on the world stage!
Okay, fine, you run down the list of Trump’s heinous actions — cozying up to dictators, restricting reproductive rights even though he’s surely funded a couple dozen abortions himself, stripping our nation of its democracy as he sells us out to his Russian oligarch masters — and I could easily come up with something about his behavior that I’m one hundred percent behind: the pathological lying over trifling bullshit, the hoarse screaming in front of helicopters about not knowing someone in his inner circle who was just indicted, the obnoxious smirking as he humps the flag with his impotent mushroom dick.
I’m grinning and bearing it, like Melania at a public event forced to stand next to the sociopath she despises for being history’s most repulsive human taint. True, we may have a president whom I find abhorrent on every conceivable issue. But at least we finally have a real douchebag in office.
I only hope that Don, Jr., turns out to be an even bigger piece of shit.

To Angry Beaver:
Thanks for the post! Wow!!! I never heard you expound so profusely on such a controversial topic. I thought it was brilliantly said although you will certainly either see it deleted or receive a lot of hate mail and here, I speak from bitter experience. I really think that you ought to post it in Gramma Tink’s web page and I myself plan to cut and paste it just for my own edification and inspiration.
Brilliantly said, Beaver, and what you said, along with the way the pandemic was mishandled, is argument enough for his defeat in 2020. You see, he was elected for lots of reasons, but one thing people forget is that as loathsome as Trump appeared to so many voters, Hillary, for whom I did NOT vote myself, was even less appealing and done in by the same media which Trump so roundly detests. It’s ironic, in a way, but the difference between this election and the 2016 election is that Trump has had four years to show how manifestly unsuited he is for the job, something that could not be known in 2016. People’s memories are short but some things—like the way the pandemic was bungled—are not easily forgotten, especially if a loved one has died as a consequence. Despite the fact that Trump has repeatedly insisted, “I am not responsible,” that stands in stark contrast to Harry Truman’s laudable phrase, “The buck stops here,” meaning that, right or wrong, the man who sits in the Oval Office HAS to, like it or not, assume responsibility, an aspect of the job that Trump really detests, but, hey, it goes with the office whether it pleases you or not, and people remember that sort of thing, especially in the voting booth. People not only vote their checkbooks; they vote their hearts as well, especially if that heart has been broken through incompetence, greed or corruption.
Yes, the incumbent has a distinct advantage and yes, he has raised a shit load of money and his followers revere him like a god, which suits his autocratic tendencies. After all, the United States is a republic, NOT a monarchy and Trump has always seen himself as being appointed by God himself, which is not just a fanciful figure of speech; it’s really how he perceives himself and his presidency. That, with his ignorance of and contempt for the rule of law, makes him unsuited for the job but that hardly matters to people who like his (smirk) “transactional” mode of governance. I see that word as a polite euphemism for autocracy but his worshippers—and that’s just what they are—-LIKE his role as a “disruptor” who takes pleasure in shitting on every bit of protocol and ceremony that comes with the office. It’s very much what children do to something they can’t or won’t take the trouble to understand and unfortunately, many Americans like that because they HATE politics and conventional politicians. Trump’s greatest appeal comes NOT from what he IS, but rather, from what he ISN’T. It’s that simple and goes a long way towards explaining WHY so many people revere him.
Well, this will no doubt be deleted so maybe I will repost it on Gram’s page and if you’re smart, Beaver, you’ll do the same. I myself preserve ALL my own posts in an MS WORD program because after laboring on them so long, it rankles me to see them deleted for purely perverse reasons and they have given me the chance to polish up my prose so that gives me some justification for doing so. I think that you, too, ought to do the same because in THIS post, you hit the nail right on the head.
Bravo—sometimes it takes the perspective of a foreigner to show you just how things really stand in this ailing but beloved republic of ours.Thank you, Beaver!
