On almost every news site, we can see regular requests for money.

I have been operating this site for years without asking for anything but there are now growing, but not huge, costs involved in producing this and so it is that we have a “donate” button to help defray expenses.

No, we won’t have to sell our children to the medical experimenters if we don’t raise $200,000 by next Thursday but as the fat man said, every little bit helps.

The Voice of the White House

Washington, D.C., December 11, 2017: “Ever since the Civil War, the United States has been actually run by groups of businessmen. These are not famous bankers or major personalities but small groups of very modest and very influential citizens.

This is an excerpt from a new novel in progress that a friend sent to me. Having spent considerable time in Washington, I must say it has the strong ring of absolute truth:

‘Washington is never pleasant in the mid-summer months and when Congress is in recess; everyone deserts the capitol for more agreeable surroundings.

It was three days before the Fourth of July and on Pennsylvania Avenue, prefabricated grandstands were being hammered and bolted together for a parade held in honor of the founding of the nation and to provide the new President with another opportunity of strutting before the public.

At the Cosmos Club on Massachusetts Avenue, once the elegant town house of an undersecretary of state, there was a meeting in the second floor library.

It was a very humid day and the long windows facing the street were open, their transparent curtains moving sinuously in the occasional half-hearted breeze. There were stone-faced security people at all the doors, which were closed and locked, but very few club members were in town in the heat and it was not a time when libraries were sought-after refuges.

The ornate oak table in the center of the room had been cleared of its stained globes and magazine racks and a group of men, most overweight and thinning of hair, sat around the table in various attitudes of attention. Bottles of mineral water, glasses and ice buckets were in constant use as were the pads of yellow, lined paper that sat in front of each attendee.

The speaker was a pudgy, balding man with rimless glasses, who looked exactly like a retired librarian. Appearances often deceive and the man was the director of a well-known conservative think tank.

“This, gentlemen, is not quite an emergency situation but I think I ought to inform you that the President has had another of his seizures. Oh yes, but not a serious one and fortunately not in front of anyone. How an epileptic ever got into the White House is a mystery….”

“Well, Josiah, you put him there,” said a thin man with the complexion of a bowl of cottage cheese.

“Don’t remind me, Jim, please do not. Now, we knew nothing about this and I will hold Saul and his people responsible for missing this…little illness. My God, what if Patrick had a grand mal at a state dinner? Or giving the State of the Union? Now, we have to find a way out of this mess. We need someone else….”

“What about Gordon?” asked another attendee.

“Gordon is a good soldier, but not the brightest star in the heavens. Still, he won’t flop onto the stage, pissing his pants and he isn’t a drunk like the second Bush. It’s too long to the next election and if it comes out due to some awful incident that the sitting President is a flip-flop artist….”

There was general laughter.

“Well, you see what I mean. If anything happens to Paddy, Gordon could serve out the term. But we do need to have a better man up and ready for the convention.  I was thinking of Cisek. He’s doing fine in Maine but the public doesn’t know about him yet.  We can have him keynote a few events, get the media to help out with wonderful puff pieces. There’s time but that still doesn’t address the problem of brother Pat.”

“Do a Kennedy on him,” interjected a bald man who was the CEO of a large insurance company.

“Yes, that has occurred to me, Benjamin.  Yes. Or something in his medicine. Sounds like a Borgia trick but the CIA got rid of an inconvenient Pope that way as you all recall. So, let’s get some input here and hopefully we can get a consensus….’”

The Voice of the White House

Washington, D.C., December 10, 2017: “Former Alabama Supreme Court Judge Roy Moore has been the victim of an outrageous lie.

He said one of the little girls he has been accused of molesting, lied to him.

She lied about her age, Moore said to Trump in a Twitter message.

She told Moore she was ten.

The press has not reported a sad story about Moore, probably out of sympathy with his activities, but it seems a small girl was heard weeping by her mother.

When asked the reasons for this, the little girl said that Moore had invited her into his house, asked her to pat his bald-headed mouse which promptly jump up and spit at her.

On the positive side, however, as a judge, Moore did rule that if an Arkansas couple got a divorce, they could still be called brother and sister.

If Moore loses his election, there is no doubt Trump will make him Ambassador to Canada.”

Washington, D.C., December 9, 2017: “For an act of utter stupidity, I doubt if there is much that can compete with Trump’s declaration of his intent to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. By doing so he pleased his Jewish son-in-law and Fat Bibi but others are not pleased. Trump’s erratic behavior is causing serious unhappiness in European governmental circles as well as Mid-East capitols. Apologists keep telling us that we should ignore the faux pas because they are really manifestations of Trump’s cunning. And his actions in openly and determinedly supporting a heavily accused child molester for a Senate seat are not those of someone who ought to be in the White House.”

Washington, D.C., December 8, 2017: “In 1929, my late grandfather held a good deal of rapidly escalating stock in various American companies. 1929 was the year of the Bursting Bubble and my grandfather, very nervous about the upward-rocketing stock market, liquidated his holdings and put the proceeds into cash. His friends all laughed at him for being a loser but on Black Friday, they lost almost everything. Grandfather would be having entertainment watching the bleating sheep buying BitCoins because, like the bloated bubble stock market in 1929, this bubble too will burst. One would think the dotcom scam would have taught a lesson to the sheep but apparently the only way to dissuade them from mass fiscal extinction would be to exile all of them to Poland. It would be a terrible thing to do to the Poles but they could eventually have them for Sunday dinner….on the platter.”

Washington, D.C., December 5, 2017:”It appears more and more that we are seeing a reprise of the second Nixon administration. Trump is antagonizing the establishment in this country to a remarkable degree and many voters are obviously having second thoughts about the effectiveness and depth of his presidency. The European community, to include Russia, find Trump a dangerously inconsistent and untrustworthy ally. There is no doubt he made many promises to Putin about normalizing relations with Russia, promises he promptly broke under pressure from the neo-cons and Israel. That latter country has been pressuring Trump to attack Iran and support their enmity with a Hezbollah that inflicted serious military defeats on their army in the last Israeli incursions of Lebanon. The Saudi dream of a Great Sunni Empire is collapsing along with their oil productions and in their agony, Saudi Arabia is capable of great destruction in both the Middle Eastern political scene but in the economic/political structure in the United States.”

Over 70 million Americans who have home, or business, mortgages, do not, and never will have, ownership of their properties. This is due entirely to criminal and deliberate fraud practiced on the public by banks, financial institutions and the government itself. This fraud has now spread to China and also to Germany where German banks, controlled by Americans, are defrauding Germans on a regular basis.”

populations, declining incomes and increasing pollution, the impact of global warming will be a global disaster.

The planet does not have enough fresh water for a significant part of its population and today, billions do not have access to water.

With a shortage of water, crops diminish in size and lend starvation to the disaster.

There are now enormous migrations of people from uninhabitable lands and there will be terrible war fought over land in the very near future.

No one knowS what causes the climate changes but the bloggers will be more than happy to let you in on their concocted secrets.

The reality is that huge social changes are in motion and cannot be halted.”

The Voice of the White House

Washington, D.C., December 2, 2017: “”Mr. Trump has not proven to be

a competent President.

He has had no national political experience as proven by his clumsy moves.

He makes bombastic statements of intent, designed to appeal to the very wealthy and his red-neck supporters and then has to either retract them or decline to act.

His rapid changes of course have seriously unsettled both European and Asian leaders and there are movements now to reject America’s controlling interest in their actions.

His erratic actions launching a rocket attack against a Syrian airfield based on transparently false news of chemical attacks has unnerved more than the US military.

When the Pentagon learned of his intended rocket attacks, they alerted the Russians who promptly removed personnel and aircraft from the target.

Also, the Russians were able, by the use of microwave transmissions, to deflect most of the ship-borne missiles so they fell, harmlessly, into the water.

The problem facing official Washington today is this: If Trump is forced to be a powerless first term president all well and good but if he is forced out of office, like Nixon, who will be able to replace him?

The choices are very, very few…if any.”
