Where’s Rod Serling?

For younger people, Rod Serling was the host, writer, creator of an early television anthology show called The Twilight Zone. The common thread for the individual episodes was that nothing was what you assumed it was.

The recent actions of Trumplethinskin trying to get the other members of the G7 to readmit Russia really does not fit the reality that his own Treasury Department was getting ready to hit five Russian firms with sanctions, citing cyberattacks.

Then he attacks Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, for disagreeing with the tariffs that Trump decided to impose on the other members of the G7. The NDP opposition party in the Canadian parliament introduced a motion and MPs united to condemn Trump’s tariffs and verbal attacks.

Of course the real reason that Trump flipped was the picture released by the German government showing Angela Merkel possibly telling Trump that he would only be permitted spoons and siipy cups at future G7 meetings, and the spoons would be rubber coated. He had to attack Trudeau, because he’s afraid of Merkel.

😂👍🏾Yep! That’s what I was thinking… Twilight Zone indeed! I’d read not long ago that CBS has ordered the third Twilight Zone series revival with Jordan Peele taking over the role of Rod Serling.

I do get the impression that Dotard is deathly afraid of Merkel. Probably the only time he shows any sense & self-preservation instincts!

I suspect that his whole agenda regarding NK is to get into the history books for finally ending the Korean War! He’d probably give away anything for that. It’s always about his ego. *shrug*

Trump would sign a peace treaty saying that Kim’s grandfather actually won the wore and South Korea is a province of the North to get a Nobel Prize. He would probably withdraw all US forces from the Pacific Command for Time’s Person of the Year cover.

His ability to make good deals ended 30 or 40 years ago, and he has been living on his early success since then. If the Democrats take back Congress they should subpoena his tax returns and publish them in the Congressional Record. I feel certain they will show he’s broke. With all of his bankruptcies, he doesn’t have a credit score and has no access to US financial institutions. I would guess that Putin probably controls all of his debt and that’s how he controls him. Sex is so last century.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace takes the prize IMNSHO for the reporting of this hysterical (oops, maybe I meant historical? Ehh, no.) meeting! She deserves a pay raise & many, many kudo’s! She’s certainly getting a lot of attention on Twitter. I am now a fan! 😊😏👍🏾

‘What is wrong with him?’: MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace bursts into laughter over Trump’s bizarre attempts at diplomacy

And man… Did I need a laugh! The news the past week has been just pure evil on many fronts! You only have to be concerned about the stupid evil crap in the USA. I have to be concerned about the stupid evil crap they do here right after the stupid evil crap in the USA! And sometimes, before!🤬👹 😔

It has been determined that Putin actually suggested that Trump stop the joint exercises as a show of good faith for North Korea. Apparently Trump and Putin have frequent telephone conversations.

Nicolle Wallace was George W. Bush’s director of communications – she is a lapsed Republican, like many of the most vehement voices against Trump on MSNBC.

Canada, the US, and Mexico are hosting the 2026 World Cup. There are no guarantees that teams or fans will be allowed into the US unless Congress gets off the stick and fixes the immigration laws and the people who enforce them.

After looking at pictures from the G-7 I figured out why Trump attacked Trudeau – Trudeau is taller, stronger, better looking, better hair, and his wife is willing to stand beside him at public events. Trump is afraid of Merkel, May and every other strong woman.

Trumpism is spreading and poisoning politics.

How did we know this was likely to happen? *sigh*

Donald Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize as disarmament timeline revealed

Been saying for many years the NPP was worthless. If this happens, would absolutely confirm it!

In the other Twilight Zone Universe of Micro$tuffed…

Microsoft pushing Win10 version 1803 to PCs specifically set to avoid it

Seems that M$ are trying to ruin their reputation (what’s left of it) with Business users or really want to get out of the OS biz. *shrug*

The entire Nobel thing was cooked up by Repug Congresscritters because Obama got one for not being the Shrubbery or John McCain.The Nobel committee won’t give him anything while he is attacking Europe on non-existent trade problems. It would be a bit beyond the pale to give a peace prize to someone for not launching a war that he started to talk about.

Until and unless M$ hires some full-time programmers to work on their software, instead of contractors, their products are going to be crap. Fewer people with H-1B visas would probably help, and operating system design and support really are long-term projects.

Hi Bryan & all. I’m not trying to be melodramatic. you know me I think. i’ve reached my limit. i’m taking some time off and getting offline for awhile. i can’t give details right now, this is difficult enough. check my twitter feed for my tweets the past couple days will give you a clue.


I really hope you all are ok & will take care. i’ll check back when i’m ready “expect me when you see me”.

9 Bryan { 06.16.18 at 9:52 am }

Take care. Everyone needs to to take a deep breath and return to the real world. After the G-7, Singapore, what’s happening along the US-Mexico border, and governments world-wide, if you aren’t being paid a lot of money to track this stuff, you need to step back and recharge.

We should be around when you’re ready to reenter the ‘lists”…

10 Kryten42 { 06.20.18 at 3:59 am }

Thanks Bryan. I’m kinda back online. Turned out I wasn’t just feeling depressed… I had the start of a head cold too. Spent the weekend in bed! Feeling better & still angry. Which is good. Anyone sane should be. So I guess I pass! 😀

Curiously… My Twitter followers increased by almost 30 the 5 days I was offline! Are they trying to tell me something?🤔🤪


I see Wonkette & Hullabaloo & several other blog’s are also pretty peeved about the crap the GOP are pulling (and you also of course!). As they should be.

11 Kryten42 { 06.20.18 at 7:47 am }

Hmmm! Tim Canova @Tim_Canova who is apparently running for Congress in FL 23 commented on a tweet of mine. Do you know him? Is he someone to take seriously & honest (as far as any politician can be called honest)?

My Tweet:
“Further research into donations of For-profit Prisons shows the majority of recipients are GOP, but 40% are Dem’s. Any Dem that receives this blood money, should return it & stop taking donations!👎🏾 #GeeksResist #TheResistance #TrumpConcentrationCamps”

His reply:
“@DWStweets has taken money from giant Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), now called @CoreCivic, while pushing for its proposed private for-profit immigration detention center in Southwest Ranches in our district. More of DWS hypocrisy on treatment of migrants & refugees.”

12 Bryan { 06.20.18 at 3:44 pm }

I know more about DWS [Debbie Wasserman Schultz]. I have been exchanging e-mails with her since 2000 when she was in the Florida legislature. She used to be a decent human being and then she got elected to Congress, moved up the ranks of Congress, and lost her moral compass. She became the chair of the Democratic National Committee and played fast and lose with the rules to help Hillary Clinton. That she is taking corporate money is no surprise.

Essentially Canova is running as an independent because he can’t get around the gatekeepers in the Democratic Party. Most of what he says would be his policies seem reasonable and Bernie Sanders thinks he’s OK. He is a law professor, and it would be nice to have someone in the House of Representatives who actually knows something about our laws 😈

13 Kryten42 { 06.20.18 at 6:16 pm }

Ahh! Yes, I used to think years ago that DWS was a *good one* then… not so much! “Power corrupts…” etc.

here’s some good news for FL (time will tell of course). 😀

Eileen Higgins wins Miami-Dade commission seat in upset over Zoraida Barreiro

14 Bryan { 06.20.18 at 7:34 pm }

Ms Higgins ran as “La Gringa” as the district includes Little Havana – the Republican core of the Miami Cuban community. She is from Ohio, but speaks Spanish. The Cuban political machine took a hit that does not bode well for several Congressional districts. The human rights violations along the border don’t play well in South Florida and neither does the treatment of Puerto Rico.
