George Washington and Victory at IAD

Also, Mr. Trump has noted:

“Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice.”

Addendum:

Pretty sure I cooled my heels sitting under this painting in the WH for half an hour once. Don’t remember the B-24 Liberators…

    Trump has a really lame excuse for his airport remark:

    https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/trump-teleprompter-airports-went-out

    The President blamed his weird reference to Revolutionary War armies taking over airports on the teleprompter going black, claiming he was “right in the middle of that sentence” when it cut out. “The teleprompter went out, it kept going on and then at the end it just went out, it went kaput, so I could’ve said — and actually right in the middle of that sentence it went out and that’s not a good feeling,” he said. “When you’re standing in front of millions and millions of people on television and I don’t know what the final count was but that went all the way back to the Washington Monument. “I knew the speech very well,” he continued. “So I was able to do it without a teleprompter but the teleprompter did go out.”

    ******

    It seems he did not know the speech all that well – and he certainly flunked American history!

      I dunno, Trump seems to have real temporal problems when it comes to the military. And it’s not just his apparent belief that M4 Sherman tanks are “brand new”. Let’s not forget that Trump also ordered the US Navy to take a step backwards and use steam catapults rather than electromagnetic catapults on the next generation carriers.

      Too bad Trump didn’t take the opportunity to try and climb into one of those Abrams tanks. Or better yet, try to squeeze his oversized frame into the commander’s seat in one of those Bradley vehicles on display. That would have been worth the price of admission.

    That’s clearly Houston Hobby Airport before the renovation. Or before Houston, for that matter.

      Menzie’s clever cartoon has zero resemblance. Hey Stevie – don’t you have another date with Fox and Friends where you will be cheered on for your justification of torturing brown children?

      They’ll be in your backyard any minute now “Princeton”Kopits, they’re in a “low rider” going north on I-95 to your house right this very moment. It’s a 4 year old gangbanger in the driver’s seat. Better text your buddies at Stormfront and VDARE. You only have so much time to weld the chastity belt on your daughter before the 4-6 years old children arrive to r*pe and murder her.

      The children who haven’t eaten for days or been provided soap from CBP are all sodomites, I’m telling you “Princeton”Kopits. If they discern the infamous “policy analyst” leads a profiteering and grifting cha-cha line everytime there’s a hurricane in a Latin American country, the Central American toddlers will be telling you to relax your sphincter muscles for the jagged beer bottle.

        “Donald Trump’s administration can’t decide on a strategy to defend their policy of indiscriminately jailing immigrant children at the Mexican border. Trump’s position is that it’s a terrible tragedy that Democrats inflicted on us and they won’t end it by giving him a border wall. Stephen Miller says it’s a “simple decision” that no one should apologize for. Sarah Huckabee Sanders says it’s kinda sad, sure, but the Bible requires it. Jeff Sessions says the same but without the sad part. Now U.S. Border Patrol has weighed in, objecting to how the child detention centers are being depicted in the media. Specifically, they take issue with the word “cages,” not because it’s inaccurate but because it makes them look bad.”

        It’s the Democrats fault! It’s what the Bible requires! Oh wait – if they all used Stevie boy’s market based visa system those cages would magically become castles!

          I think somewhere in Christ’s Sermon on the Mount it says “All darkies go in cages without food, clean water, soap, and without any feeling of safety or security in the late night hours” I think it’s next to the part where Jesus says “Feed these F**kers fish and bread!?!?!?! What do I look like, a food pantry?!?!??!”

            I wonder what Trump thinks about these ICE agents raping Latino women in custody. After all – he has a strong preference for white blonde chicks. Then again rape is all about domination which likely gets Trump all excited.

            Of course Christian Mike Pence should find this abuse of God’s children to be very objectionable but so far not a single comment from the VP.

    I must confess to having complete reverence for George Washington in my childhood days. However after learning more, I would not put a resemblance of his facial image on a rear view mirror trinket in my personal car, or even say if I was a taxi driver (you know, just in case you were wondering if I would do that).

    Personally I’m a big fan of the replicas of George Washington’s wooden dentures, which I rank as 2nd place, only to Ted Cruz eating boogers video footage.

    You know, it just dawned on me this could explain the whole thing with Republican Senator Larry Craig. Maybe Craig was in the initial Marines landing force in the Pre-staging to the Airport Bathroom Wars??

    Eventually it all makes sense people. Or did Roger Waters say it all makes cents now??? ….expressed in shillings and pence?? I forgot.

    I, too, was amazed by that. Donald Trump became the first POTUS ever to commit a gaffe of any kind.

      Like when Jimmy Carter told the Polish people he had escaped the US? Of course with the Trumpster – it is far from his 1st gaffe. Likely not even his first gaffe of the day.

      Oh I’m sorry Brucie – I may said something negative about the person who idol worship. Never mind!

      What would those “two Corinthians “ say about gaffes (or the chuckles that were heard from the Liberty U. audience)?

      I should delay writing this. See, I have plenty of trees on my property, and I should get out out and “rake” like the Finns do in their forests.

        I admit, I’ve been negligent. Instead of “raking” my oaks and pines, I’ve been using a chain saw, a mower, and a string trimmer. What was I thinking?

      Trump was right about California not having a drought. We just lacked rain and snow for about five years.

    AG Barr may not know it, but years ago William Burroughs wrote a very short comedy routine about AG Barr. Titled “The Do Rights”. Also kind of biographical about Mitch McConnell, and Rod Rosenstein. it fits all three men quite well. It’s quite touching, might make you think of a passed away relative er something. It so accurately renders AG Barr’s personality and inner character it makes you think Burroughs must have had a psychic vision about Barr before he died just short of 22 years ago:

    Trump’s 4th of July Show = Putin’s America

    https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/russia-state-tv-mocks-trump-july-4-bash?fbclid=IwAR0vP4J22euSnGF2DVtw0-7sfy4KuWFxS1vAgNGcXDzZGbhNjSqLSKrzowE

    “The greatest parade of all times is going to be held today in Washington, that is what our Donald Trump has said,” journalist Yevgeny Popov, who co-hosts Rossiya 1’s “60 Minutes” program, said sarcastically. “The American president announced he would show us the newest tanks.” Olga Skabeyeva, the show’s other co-host, also mocked Trump’s tanks, saying that “the paint on these vehicles is peeling off.”

    “There are no cannons, and their optics have been glued on with adhesive tape,” she said. The Post’s report also mentioned Skabeyeva pointing out the hypocrisy of Americans holding a military parade being seen as a show of patriotism while military parades in Russia are seen as dictatorial. “Americans are allowed to hold a parade because theirs is democratic, but we are not allowed because ours is chauvinistic,” she said.

    Skabeyeva also tweeted a video of the tanks being transported to the National Mall, where Trump held the event. “Putin’s America,” she wrote with a laughing emoji

    It’s rare to hear people mention Alan Dershowitz on this, he was “in the mix” shall we say on a lot of this stuff. And it is worth mentioning, there were some journalists who were shrugged off when they discussed this as loudly as they could BEFORE “Me Too”. In fact I never made a blog post about it, but I made more than one comment online about Epstein and Dershowitz before “Me Too”. You got very little reaction when you discussed this stuff, it was like talking about water erosion from rivers on planet Mars.

    “Justice” in our country is largely a function of how much money you have. The Epstein case, when we’re talking about abuse of children vs blacks sitting in jail half their life because of shoplifting, stealing $5 from a 7-11 cash register, or mild marijuana usage–explains what law judges in the USA are all about.

    Note the B-24 imposed on “Washington Crossing the Delaware” and the fact George McGovern flew B-24’s out of airfields in Italy during World War Two!

    Is this connected to “Princeton”Kopits’ new immigrant procedure recommendations to the White House?? “Princeton”Kopits says donald trump hangs on his every word, so I assume the treatment of children here is Kopits’ avant-garde concept. Feeding children chlorine must be very cost effective. I’ve suspected for a long time, roughly since Kopits’ post-Maria excess death numbers for Puerto Rico that Kopits drinks large amounts of chorine as a breakfast energy shake, so it all makes sense now.
