OF COURSE lil’ Donnie wants a military parade to review; it’s the ultimate physical manifestation of his strongman impulses.
He adores the idea of all the Elite Trump Praetorian Guards high-stepping (You can’t march like that with bone-spurs, amirightwinkwinknudgenudge!?) past his reviewing stand, all responding to the crisp “Eyes, right!” command while simultaneously saluting their Pretender in Chief.
Or…better idea!…the Magnificence and Might that is America’s Grand Chancellor could lead the parade.
You know, if his bone spurs don’t make that impossible.
But the best part!? Dollars to doughnuts says that if this lunacy comes to fruition, lil’ Donnie will be wearing a custom designed military-like suit, perhaps something along the lines of the Army’s dress blues, but let out a whole bunch, and bemedaled the likes of which Sheriff Clark could only begin to imagine.
And an inspiring song, that’s what needed to finish the spectacle off!
I know I’d attend; It would be glorious.
The World Health Organization’s new report on cannabidiol (CBD) found that the compound (which does not produce any kind of high — and may actually counteract the psychoactive properties of THC) is not addictive, has no potential for abuse, and shows promise in a number of medical trials.
So of course Trump’s Drug Enforcement Agency wants to class it as a Schedule I narcotic, reserved for substances with “a high potential for abuse”; “no currently accepted medical treatment use in the U.S.”; and “a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or substance under medical supervision.”
We’d note that CBD is legal in a number of states, to include our own Missery. We would also mention that Misserians tend to own quite a lot of guns. The combination of the preceding might make for something of a mess should lil’ Jeffy Sessions send in his jackbooted thugs in order to shut that whole thing down.
Deep in the bowels of Tex-Ass, there’s some (more) hinky shit going on:
Federal agents privately alerted two magistrate judges in late January that they would be targeting the Austin area for a major operation and that the sting was retribution for a new policy by Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez that dramatically limited her cooperation with them, according to one of the judges.
The revelation — made Monday in open court by U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Austin — conflicts with what Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials told local leaders after the sweep, when ICE characterized the operation as routine and said the Austin area was not being targeted. It also provides evidence after weeks of speculation that Hernandez’s policy triggered ICE’s ire.
“We had a briefing … that we could expect a big operation, agents coming in from out of town, that it was going to be a specific operation, and at least it was related to us in that meeting that it was the result of the sheriff’s new policy that this was going to happen,” Austin said.
“My understanding, what was told to us, is that one of the reasons that happened was because the meetings that had occurred between the (ICE) field office director and the sheriff didn’t go very well,” he said.
OMP‘s racist reign has emboldened the Brownshirt wannabe crowd. Sadly, too many current ICE agents –as will, we surmise, the preponderance of the 5,000 or so future ICE workers— have no business being in positions of authority, much less with badges and guns.
Wake up, people; today Austin, tomorrow your home town.
