How can I best describe my feelings during the Trump Era so far? I’m feeling suspended in time. How about you?
I wish Trump would attack my new book “Letter to Lucy” too! About 250,000 copies of Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” had already been shipped to be held until next Tuesday. Now Holt & Co released it today “due to unprecedented demand.”
Trump’s lawyers did not cite national security as grounds for trying to kill the book. Rather this was intimidation. Henry Holt responded by bringing publication forward to today-Friday. Well done!
Trump is lying-again. Wolff’s access to Trump and his inner circle is evident. Wolff writes of how he sat down with Trump in his Beverly Hills home while Kushner and Trump aides Hope Hicks, and Corey Lewandowski, milled about. His book proves close proximity.
“Fire and Fury” confirms what Trump’s own call him: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin: “an idiot,” Cohn: “dumb,” national security adviser H.R. McMaster considered him a “dope,” and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, concluded that the commander in chief is a “moron.”
“The world wonders how the United States will survive Donald Trump. And I ask, what will finally move Republicans to deliver a non-negotiable ultimatum to this unstable president?” writes Joe Scarborough, Wash Post.
The GOP’s leadership’s defense of Trump appears even more preposterous following Wolff’s revelations, in “Fire and Fury,” of Bannon’s observation that members of Trump’s team, including his son, committed nothing less than treason.
Will Trump survive his 1st term? If he does the Republican Party is doomed.

Dear Frank Schaeffer:
Don’t rule out a Trump/Bannon rapprochement. Especially as coming social struggles break upon the US, the White House may well feel the need for more populist demagogy. Bannon will be available.
Wolff’s work will confirm what many rightly believed about Trump’s ineptitude and mental/psychological unfitness for office. But these points have nothing in common with the deep-seated working class opposition to administration policies.
The real concern of ruling elite Democrats/Republicans is that Trump’s erratic behavior may trigger a mass popular movement that threatens the bourgeois as a whole.
Once again gdd you continue with your pseudo intellectual communist ideologies and accusations thinly disguised as liberation theology in your attempts to sow division and discord . So once again I repeat the challenge ( going on the 5th time now ) ;
NAME ONE SINGLE INSTANCE WHERE WHAT YOU ARE PROPOSING , THE ACCUSATIONS YOU ARE MAKING AND THE AGENDA YOU CONTINUOUSLY PROPAGATE LIKE SO MUCH FERTILIZER HAS ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING OTHER THAN REPLACING THE ORIGINAL PROBLEMS WITH WORSE PROBLEMS THAN IT PROPOSED TO RESOLVE WITH CONSEQUENCES LASTING DECADES AFTERWARDS ?
Just one gdd . Just one .
And so once again I say …. PUT UP OR SHUT UP !
Martin wants people to PUT UP OR SHUT UP but he should take his own advice.
He NEVER provides a speck of proof for all his claims about his academic accomplishments, his wealth, his great connections and so on.
PUT UP OR SHUT UP Martin. People are sick of your lies.
Ahhh … yes … once again the child(ren) rise to the fore with their inanity and stupidity .
So can we expect the rest of the Sock Puppets on Ice cast to appear sometime soon as well ?
FYI name one lie I’ve uttered here complete with viable and verifiable proof . Just one !
PUT UP OR SHUT UP yerself little one
Screaming in all caps does not make your argument better, Martin.
As for your claims about your academic accomplishments, your money, your great connections…you have not provided a bit of proof.
PUT UP OR SHUT UP!
Proof, Martin, of even one of your claims about your education, your money, your connections.
Courtney asked and you responded with a diversion, but no proof.
So now I have I asked. Twice.
If you don’t provide proof of even one of those claims, it shows you are a liar.
… knowing damn full well gdd you never will respond to my blatant challenge … both because you are incapable intellectual of doing so as well as the fact that there is no instance in and thru out history since the dawn of recorded history to be found … I’ll end by simply saying …
Mea culpa for my trying to force a modicum of reality to an otherwise blatantly post-reality conversation with a delusional misguided fool .
e.g. An abject exercise in futility .
gdd …. allow me to inform you about that deep seeded working class opposition you endlessly go on about … as if you had a clue who and what they are .
That deep seeded working class opposition minority are the very same Collective Stupidity of America working class that voted for a reality TV star who’s sole agenda is the enrichment of himself and those around him to the detriment of the very working class that supports him while increasing the celebrity he so desperately craves
Which is to say … give a it a rest little one .. your precious overly vocal little working class minority the majority of which refuse to do much of the work needed .. preferring unemployment and the masquerade of victimhood over quality jobs and professions in the trades ( plumbers carpenters electricians etc ) because in reality they’re too damn lazy to do the work to become certified even when the schooling needed is offered for free with well paid apprenticeships
So in conclusion gdd … try acting your age … seeing reality for what it really is .. rather than acting more like your shoe size … seeing the world around you thru delusional blinders and Eyes Wide Shut .
…. and on the subject of good paying jobs in the trades currently available yet unfilled .. having remained unfilled for over five years now I might add .
Try to the tune of some 650,000 jobs … all of which after a one to three year paid apprenticeship would pay in excess of $100k or more
So take that and shove it into your pseudo intellectual communist posing as a liberation theology pipe … and smoke it .
Suffice it to say it might just serve you a helluva lot better than what ever it is you’re currently … cough … smoking .
Dear TJ Martin:
Socialist since Marx’ day have spoken of an ongoing bourgeoisie/petty-bourgeoisie anti-working class alliance.
This anti-working class narrative/hostility illustrates this eloquently.
… and in as far as that bourgeois you complain so incessantly about .
How about other than the air you breath you try coming up with one single aspect of your entire existence that isn’t either subsidized in part … or paid for in full … by that bourgeois you seem to despise … be it government bourgeois … church bourgeois etc ?
Hey gdd ? I mean come on now .. one example from a bastion of pseudo intellectualism such as yourself should be a mere walk in the park .
Sigh … as for Mr Wollf’s book … though I have no doubt much of it is reasonably accurate … the sad reality is Mr Wolff over the years has proven himself to be a less than reliable and/or accurate purveyor of verifiable fact and the truth .
Or as one NYTimes critic said ” Mr Wolff is willing to say anything about anybody in order to further his celebrity and fame ”
So the reality is … rather than cheering from the rafters as Frank has done here … wisdom dictates that we take a wait a see attitude …. until it all comes out in the wash
In as far as Frank’s question as to when the GOP will finally place Country before Politics …
… the better question might be
When will they finally chose to place Patriotism over and above Party ?
…. but on the odd chance that the GOP should suddenly decide to place Patriotism over Party … might I remind them of a Constitutional tool at their immediate disposal … ironically of their own making to deal with Trump with immediate results
US Constitution ; Article 25 – Section Four .
It would be great to have some intelligent discussions here, but the Martin And Bryson show has prevented that.
This Martin tool especially will sling accusations and smears at anyone who catches his eye.
He sounds a lot like Frank.
What would truly be great would be if the Sock Puppets on Ice cast members would finally return to the virtual hell from whence they came . Common IP address and all .
FYI … your ‘ so called ‘ comments and replies are becoming rather repetitious and Cut & Paste … to the point of verbatim regurgitation .
… and as for you little sock puppet troll … perhaps at the point when you offer something even remotely resembling discussion … never mind intelligent discussion … maybe someone other than yourself will begin to take you seriously .
I second that Courtney! Me, you, and Margarita. They need to put the three of us in charge and we’d have this mess cleaned up in 30 days. I’ll be the fixer. You two can be the brains 🧠
Thing is Tara… I support Frank. Courtney does not. Plus, I already have my hands full being the admin for a Facebook astro-discussion group.
In light of your allowing trolls , sock puppets .. conspiracy theorists .. pseudo intellectual communists posing as liberation theologians .. goddess worshipers etc – et al – ad nauseam to comment at will .
Other than click baiting in the pursuit of profit.., advertising your books , as well as what I perceive to be a desperate attempt on your part to revive the celebrity you once had back yours and my bad ole evangelical days ..
.. what exactly is the purpose of this site ?
A question only you can answer .
But I can tell you what this site’s purpose most definitely is not .
The pursuit of the truth … no matter what that truth may be .
For the record agree with Frank
Current republican equals domestic enemy
The evangelibots will get the blame as well they should
Keep up that fine shame game dear Frank!!
How do we defeat our evangelical invaders?
First, they are not invaders but living humans. My dear family of course a vested interest I guess as I am surrounded by evangelicals and the only one who says this is insane.
Second, science says that the brain becomes changed or even hardened by an addiction to certainty like trauma changes brain chemistry like PTSD.
Frank calls this certainty addiction. And viewing this as an illness and so do we let such folk run our government?
I would suggest MRI brain studies of fundamental evangelical Christian folks by scientists to see about this issue.
We must get our dear American family to clearly understand this issue as I am no scientist yet if this does not get addressed and soon America is clearly doomed!
Vote for the most progressive and self funded democratic candidate in your area!
You must register to vote and get others to do so and pull that great lever for the dems my beloved American family!
Frank is again right when he talks about “certainty addiction.” And it’s not really an illness per say, but more about how our brains are hardwired. On that note, here are two articles that touch on that topic.
I would put this on my car in the most republican county in America……
“Current republican equals domestic enemy”
Please quote evangelical nine….
Great bumper sticker hey?
Young are in
Fuck em they don’t matter
Who has energy to run a national campaign
People like my kids he he….
Count out my son married to an evangelical
The other mind wide open
Course would have the best teacher
Frank your book a gem
I haven’t read it yet, Frank but my friends Jack and Nine support you and that’s all I need to know. I’m on a need to know basis.
I mean Jack knows who you are and he doesn’t disapprove. Keep up the good work. Me and my girlfriends are with you in spirit.
Saying Jack knows who Frank is and approves is not exactly a positive nor is it an endorsement anyone with a modicum of common sense would seek … seeing as how your Jack is a deluded mentally addled conspiracy theorist pretending to be a pseudo intellectual ( and doing a damn lousy job of it ) ranting like a lunatic in an insane asylum who is convinced aliens are trying to steal his brain .
And yes I read Jack’s crap you gave the links to … and suffice it to say .. Jack is the opposite side of the exact same coin Breibart etc is …e.g. … post truth – post reality – post fact – revisionist history and lies at its worst
Which is to say … I truly hope … if he is even the least bit aware of me ( which is doubtful in light of the circles he is in ) … that your precious Jack hates me with a livid passion .
Testing … One … Two … Three
