LESSON for January 29, 2021 – “SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED!”

 

From time to time, economic circumstances permitting, Don Jones ventures forth into the local WalMart or goes online and orders up a brand new Cabinet in which to store his stuff when said stuff is not particularly needed.  Unless he wants to pay a heavy premium, said Cabinet (whether manufactured in Sweden or good ol’ North Carolina) will come with a little piece of paper as says: “Some assembly required.”

This often means a lot of trouble.  (See Attachment Ten)

Sometimes, the cabinetmakers skimp on shelf brackets (twelve for $2.44 at the W, but they’re metal!) and require Don to employ a complicated array of screws and bevels and hornigobblets which often… on the cheaper models… sluice through the pressboard and render a shelf or sideboard useless (the former can sometimes be gerrymandered into semi-functionality by resting it upon tall books or boxes or whatever of approximately equal height at either end of the shelf).  It may not look as pretty as the pictures on the website, but it’ll do the trick if not jiggled too much.

For Americans (particularly of the eternally-frustrated left), Joe’s jury-rigged cabinet… confirmed and awaiting… is just another cold bucket of water in the face after the deep statements of Obama, Clinton, Carter and going back all the way to FDR’s first term.  The ostensible advantage is that no sane American… not even a Republican… would toss off the lessons of Ossoff and Warnock and Uncle Joe himself, hoist itself up on its hind legs and vote down the first African-American DefSec or first female Treasurer, both eminently qualified, not just Q-bait as some recommended Joe do by appointing a crimson dragon to one of the lesser posts and allowing the Guilty Old Party to reject it and, so, save face and enable the “healing” process to begin.

But no.  Republicans (not unlike the hardcore “wokers”) are not sane.  And if not pacified with a patsy to plague unto death, they’ll just express their ire at Impeach Two and train their fire on any old Joe-thing… be it the first African-American DefSec (See Attachment Twelve), a gay transit guy, or the unidentified “progressive groups” whom the BBC (otherwise noting the potential cabinet diversity… See Attachment Thirteen) found to be demanding the entire exclusion of the white race from the cabinet… particularly the un-winkened Anthony Blinken (State) appointed by President Nod or the boll weevil Tom Vilsack (Agriculture).

It’s all about revenge... “too much and never enough” to paraphrase Mary Trump.  And if confirmation denial or delay hurts or even… in the case of some of Joe’s health and security-related appointees… kills Americans, well, they shouldn’t have let the rigged election proceed in the first place.

As one of “Souljacker’s” nastiest graphic novels asserts… “Vinjince is Mine, saith Me!”

The problem with revenge is that there are so many competing interest groups crying out for retribution that, as far as Cabinet positions go, somebody is going to be disappointed.  And those somebodies will be telling Uncle Joe: “You’re a racist.”  (See Attachment Nine)  And maybe those on the left might persuade a Senator or two to join Josh Hawley and Mike Lee and scuttle the nominee… embarrassing on some positions, lethal on others.

Fortunately for the bluestaters, unfortunately for the reds, the hyperpartisanship that the last four years has engendered will linger on, like the odor of a dead skunk in the crawlspace beneath the baby’s room long after the critter is detected and removed.  So, while a Mitt or Murkowski or even a TV flopping fish cat toy like Susan Collins might make an occasional yell of support for a Yellin or an Austin, not even a conservative Democrat like Joe Manchin (WVa) or Sinema or Tester is likely to give the Party of Trump succor by voting down one third-tier administrator or another, just dealing out tit… like their adversaries do… for tat.

And there are a lot of maulings and clawing goings on among the lower tiers of the Deep State that began in early November, probably thanks to the perceptions of gridlock at the top.  (See Attachment Eleven)

So let’s take a look at the week gone past with… in a prelude to the week looming forward… select articles from the Articles of Impeachment (Part Deux) from, of all places, Al Jazeera!

President Joe gives America a cold shower: “Let me be very clear; things are going to get worse before they get better.”  As on: Q-Anon Rep. Greene (R-Ga) filing articles of impeachment on him the day after he takes office.  As on: Florida running out of second shots, New York running out of vaxxes altogether and new strains proliferating which, says Dr. Agus, will make casualties soar.  Boris Johnson says UK variant 30% more deadly, South Africa’s even more lethal. Mitchy says Joe’s first day in office is “a big step in the wrong direction,” SecPress Psaki replie “we’ll figure out what the sausage looks like when it comes out of the machine.”

   Consequently, Biden sets the Defense Production Act into motion. With nobody caring about N95 mask supplies, some docs tout double masking and the CDC says that second doses of a different vax are better than nothing. 

   Angry women emerge from White House woodwork to accuse E-POTUS Trump of sex crimes, but Repubs still threaten Joe with cabinet votedows if the impeachment proceeds.  7,000 National Guardsmen remain in D.C. – some are kicked out of the Capitol by bureaucrats and forced to sleep in a freezing parking garage.

   Oh yes… Hank Aaron dies and Tom Brokaw retires.

 

Resolved, That Donald John Trump, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and that the following article of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate…

President Joe’s list of EO’s reaches 30.  Repubs say he’s checking off items on the wish list of the Far Left, but Mitch and Schumer cut a deal to delay Impeach II to February 8th to get at least part of his cabinet confirmed.  Deputy SecPress Karine Jean-Pierre states that everyone from Hawley to the Bern supports Stim Three (despite repeated GOP denials and the Arizona legislature censuring Cindy McCain and others who unfriended Their President.)

   Dr. Birx breathes the fresh air of liberty after escaping the gaggings by Djonald’s bodyguard of lies, but, after 200 police and Guardsmen get it, those sent home after their socially undistant nights of huddling together for warmth are our new Super Spreaders.  Cold storage wars break out between state and local vaccine depots and overwhelmed morticians as Dr. Agus calls the distribution mechanism “a crime”. 

   Broadcaster Larry King joins Hammerin’ Hank up in the airm somewhere.

 

The Constitution provides that the House of Representatives “shall have the sole Power of Impeachment” and that the President “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment, for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” Further, section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution prohibits any person who has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” the United States from “hold[ing] and office … under the United States.’”

      Infected:  25,124,084

                Dead:  418,693

                 

Failed Presidential candidate and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Ca), rehabilitated (or maybe not?) as Chair of Impeach Two, scoffs at “unity” and calls Trump our “Enabler in Chief” as the liberal New York Times and backstabbing Wall Street Journal both report on Djonald’s scheme to replace acting DOJ cipher Jeffrey Rosen with acting acting toady Jeffrey Clarke and overturn the election.  Ragin’ Rahm Emanuel finds that old, vengeful religion – says that wounds in the body politic have to be “cleansed” (with bleach?) before stitching while more revelations about E-POTUS rigging plague data spew from the lips of Dr. Birx while Little Marco (Rubio… remember him?) defends his Big Daddy by warning Don Jones not to pour more gasoline on a “flaming fire.”

  Abidingly skeptical of bleach, docs recommend plague victims gulp Mucinex,  Pedialyte and get plenty of bed rest; Dr. Jah admits the vaxxing had “a bit of a botched rollout”, dead and dying teachers spark strikes and calls to revert to online-only schooling and big capacity events (like Miami Heat b-ball games) are using dogs to sniff out infected ticketholders.  “There’s a lot of science behind it,” advocates advocates.

 

In his conduct while President of the United States – and in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, provide, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed – Donald John Trump engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by inciting violence against the Government of the United States, in that…”

It’s National Bubble Wrap Day.  New CDC Director Walensky promises “transparency” on vaccine availability while the first case of the Brazilian Variant emerges in Miami.  President Joe extends travel taboo to Brazil, UK and South Africa… also to Ireland and 26 Eurofection nations while Dr. Fauci condemns visitors from countries “where the mutant is dominant”.

   Abroad, Israel also cancels all international travel, Dutchmen riot against new lockdowns and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador gets it.

   Ex-President Trump hires unknown lawyers after Rudy, Dersh and Sekulow say no-no… Democratic Senate tiejority ousts Justice Roberts as Presiding Judge on grounds he has no jurisdiction over former officials.  Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt) will be wielding the gavel when proceedings start next week.

 

“…President Trump repeatedly issued false statements asserting that the Presidential election results were the product of widespread fraud and should not be accepted by the American people or certified by State or Federal officials. Shortly before the Joint Session commenced (on Jan. 6th), President Trump, addressed a crowd at the Ellipse in Washington, D.C. There, he reiterated false claims that “we won this election, and we won it by a landslide.” He also willfully made statements that, in context, encouraged – and foreseeably resulted in – lawless action at the Capitol, such as: ‘if you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country any more.’”

No sooner are all one hundred Senators sworn in to begin Impeach Two trial by going back to work as Cabinet confirmers or denialists than Presiding Judge Leahy (the stated cause was “abundance of caution” .  The Senators go back to work and confirm former Fed Reserve Chair Janet Yellin as SecTreas.  The count of Republicans partial to conviction on Impeach Two still stands at five, twelve short, and 23 of Biden’s now-33 EO’s reverse Trump EO’s.  Check that… 38 (including tearing up contracts for private prisons. 

   Joe’s clearly had his morning joe.  He promises two shots for every American adult by “summer”, and dials up Putin.  They agree on new nuke talks, disagree on Navalny and electoral cyberhacking.

   New plague threats emerge.  Variants may be vax-proof and, if not, there’s a dire shortage of needles and syringes.  Mobilize den junkies!  The global death toll climbs over a million.

 

Thus incited by President Trump, members of the crowd he had addressed, in an attempt to, among other objectives, interfere with the Joint Session’s solemn constitutional duty to certify the results of the 2020 Presidential election, unlawfully breached and vandalized the Capitol, injured and killed law enforcement personnel, menaced Members of Congress, the Vice President, and Congressional personnel, and engaged in other violent, deadly, destructive and seditious acts.”

DOJ cuts Capitol invasion suspect count in half, to 400… 135 of whom are being processed for trials.  Sen. Leahy released from hospital… false alarm!... but, with Impeach Two on hold, Senators confirm SecState Blinken 78-22.  Rep. Taylor-Greene (R-Qa) advocates executing Pelosi, who calls her The Enemy Within (prompting Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) to issue an expulsion resolution for same and for her assertions that the Las Vegas massacre was a conspiracy by… somebody.  Loyal and deserting QA cultists forming rival support groups (like for drunks and Moonies).  FBI arrests bleached blond bomber – Michigan Governor kidnap plotter rats out his comerades.  Ex-HomeSec czar Chertoff proposes replacing First Amendment with more laws against “hate” speech that talking heads attribute to “perceived grievances fueled by false narraties”.

   Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Ca), a Jonestown survivor, compares Trump to Jim Jones and Charlie Manson (without even mentioning the “family”).  Djonald’s ex-You-Nster Nikki Haley whines: “Give the man (T) a break.”

   January now the deadliest plague month – FEMA calls in military to help give out shots and the media now promising: “Dire Months Ahead!”  Panic hiring of college kids to plan and enact vaxxing turns tragic.  CDC says masks protect schoolkids, but not teachers.  Mardi Gras cancelled and CDC recommends cancelling all school sports, esp. wrestling.  DEA worries that bored, anxious Joneses are turning to meth and fentanyl, WSJ that they are taking up day trading.  But Dr. Jah exults: by summer we’ll have more vaxxes “than we know what to do with.”

 

President Trump’s conduct on January 6, 2021, followed his prior efforts to subvert and obstruct the certification of the results of the 2020 Presidential election. Those prior efforts included a phone call on January 2, 2021, during which President Trump urged the secretary of state of Georgia, Brad Raffensperger, to “find” enough votes to overturn the Georgia Presidential election results and threatened Secretary Raffensperger if he failed to do so.”

But with vaccine supplies now either gone or locked up in storage for mysterious and/or nefarious purposes, President Joe predicts 90,000 deaths in February (CDC slightly more optimistic – only 85,000).  His EOutput up to 40, including Obamacare strengthening and $15 minwage, gladdening the Bern. 

   Homeland Security issues Panic Alert… right-wing extremists are plotting mass massacres over the weekend NOW! and AGAINST YOU!!!  For proof, they trot out an “angry lone wolf” who raves and rages: “I want to blow up a Democrat building real bad!” (fortunately, no people, and not even waiting for impeachment of his non-Presidential guru to begin).  Less than two weeks ‘til Impeach Two, moderate Dems and Reps float a deal to censure-only as fleeing Trump officeholders seek lobbying jobs and backwalking Rep. McCarthy (R-Ca) walks back his walkback and hastens to Mar-a-Lago at His Master’s Voice to plot QaRevolution (and maybe play golf).

   Two South Carolinians found to have the South African variant, prompting a travel ban beginning Saturday (hurry up, all youse Spreaders).  Said variant is now raging in 31 countries – Dr. Fauci worries that it’s vax-resistent, if not vax-proof and more states cut off vax tourism at the border.  U.K. renames their variant CV-117.  GMA’s Michael Strahan gets it.

In all this, President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of Government. He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of Government. He thereby betrayed his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

   “Wherefore, Donald John Trump, by such conduct, has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy, and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office, and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law. Donald John Trump thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.”

 

 

Last week, we noted that the stock market… which Mister Trump vowed would collapse under President Joe, “soared to new heights.”  This week, it crashed under a deluge of day trading, hedge antifunding (the antifoos?) short selling shorties in their mothers’ basements.  Goaded into gambling by social media sites like BBettor (no, that’s Melania’s) and servers like the formerly alt-right (but now, merely alt-market) Reddit, hordes of kids and chaos-merchants pumped up the value of downer stocks like Game Stop and AMC theaters to such extent that the rest of the markets tumbled, and continued to do so today… losing six hundred points more over their Thursday close.

A few alarmists, gold bugs, hedge hogs and such have warned that this could be the impetus for another 2008-like crash (and wouldn’t Mister Trump, awaiting impeachment and probably worse down in Florida enjoy that show!)  What conspiracy theories about reptilian aliens and rigged ballots failed to accomplish (because the revolutionaries forgot to bring that one vital component to any popular coup… guns), a wasteland of destroyed retirement and savings accounts, fiscally ruined hospitals, corporations and state and local governments without access to Chinese or Deutsche Bank loans may just provide enough impetus and warm bodies (no longer afraid of becoming cold) can accomplish.

Most everybody agreed that 2020 was America’s worst year since… pick one: 1941, 1918, 1865, 1814 or, for the really nativist few, 1620 or 1492.  Now, it seems like 2021 is out to prove most everybody wrong.  Of course, it may just be waiting out a measure of time while better times are being assembled.

South L.A. racks up 59 shootings in first two weeks of 2021.  California hackers steal 11M from unemployment assistance funds; fake vax scams spiking due to “snake oil salesmen” and appointment brokers to the rich, the new “Varsity Sick” parasites.  (DJI predicts more Hollywood and Wall Street bigveins, politicians and vaccine influence peddlers will soon be identified, tried and marched off to jail to join Mister Loughlin, see Justice, below).  Federal employees discovered stealing millions in Covid cash – so far.

President Joe joins SecPress Psaki in hiring sign language interpreter for speeches, then finds her to be a QAnon subversive.  He also signs an EO to end the military transgender ban.  DoD legalizes earrings and lipstick (presumably for female military, but who knows?).  Blacks and Latinos still get three times more plague and three times less vaxxes (lack of cars or public transit cited, but not lack of internet access for online-only registration).  Three black teens wrongly targeted at California Target store while Target bans coconut milk imported from countries that exploit monkey labor.  Woke fans propose renaming Atlanta Baseball Team the Hammers (to honor Aaron, not Armie).

Brady (Bucs) outgeezers Rodgers; Mahomes (Chiefs) young guns down Allen to set up generational Superbowl.  Big bux movies flop big.  RIP: slugger Hank Aaron, broadcaster Larry King, nonagarian actresses Cloris Leachman (“Mary”) and Cicely (“Roots) Tyson, hookers’ union organizer Margo St. James, “Flintstones” cartoonist Ron Campbell and the Student Aptitude Test (some colleges will now, apparently, base admittance on “Woke Index”).  R(etire)IP: NBC’s Tom Brokaw.  Wed again: Pam (“Barb Wire”) Anderson and her bodyguard.  Superbowl adds Youth Poet Gorman to roster of halftime entertainers (AND she’ll flip the opening coin)!

The Don Jones Index for the week of January 22nd through January 28th, 2021 was DOWN 6.87 points.

 

The Don Jones Index is sponsored by the Coalition for a New Consensus: retired Congressman and Independent Presidential candidate Jack “Catfish” Parnell, Chairman; Brian Doohan, Administrator/Editor.  The CNC denies, emphatically, allegations that the organization, as well as any of its officers (including former Congressman Parnell, environmentalist/America-Firster Austin Tillerman and cosmetics CEO Rayna Finch) and references to Parnell’s works, “Entropy and Renaissance” and “The Coming Kill-Off” are fictitious or, at best, mere pawns in the web-serial “Black Helicopters” – and promise swift, effective legal action against parties promulgating this and/or other such slanders.

Which exact positions that are considered to be cabinet-level varies with each president.
