The I.Q. test was the big thing back in my time which is pretty much Donald Trump’s time. Trump has told us two things: what a great student he was and how highly intelligent he is. Now we learn that his I.Q. has to be questioned. Why? Fordham University has just confirmed that what Michael Cohen said about calls made to schools so that Trump’s school records would not be released. Trump has either lied about his school success (and possibly his I.Q. or intelligence or Michael Cohen and Fordham are in collusion, Russian style.
Let the witch hunt begin! Mike Pence has been going along with all of this denying and not even a peep out of him. Instead ,we get an attack on Socialism as some Democrats are espousing Socialism. With all the talk about socialism in Venezuela by the Trump Administration and his friends, why hasn’t anyone mentioned that Israel was not built up by capitalism and look at Israel now. Pence is doing precisely what got the world into trouble when Spain had its civil war between Fascist and Communist forces, among some others.
And I’m not kibitzing when I tell you that there were kibbutzes in Israel. This was utopian as Degania was set up in 1909: Socialism and Zionism. There is no denying that.
Right now there are two trials taking place in America. One is the Jussie Smollett trial and other one is the Donald Trump trial. Michael Cohen spread the word about Trump and there are denials. This is not a Holocaust, but it is significant. Evidence came out about Smollett and there has been a significant shift as there should be right now in our trial by the press of Donald Trump. But is there a shift and why is Jussie being treated different from Donald. Both will put on a strong defense and we will see where all of that goes in the weeks to come.
Then there is the Michael Cohen book that was shopped around. The book was written by a different Michael Cohen. It was a year ago Trump says and now the “liar” and “felon” has given testimony to Congress (I’m writing about Cohen not Trump and Trump is not a felon yet).
The hunt for Cohen’s book is on as the White House says that proves that Cohen is a liar. But if our memories are correct, the book was written and submitted long before Cohen told the truth about Fordham University and the Trump threats. Here is Trump calling Cohen a liar long after Cohen submitted the book to cash in on being Trump’s man. How can you figure it out if even Trump had to wait many months later to start calling Cohen a liar?
The man with the great intelligence was fiction just like The Man With the Golden Gun. Actually, the similarity is closest to the man whose den is sin. Take a minute to hear Shirley Bassey’s warning decades ago. She and Michael Cohen can really open their mouths wide and it is great. Do you agree now? Cohen basically said that Trump Loves Only Gold. He Loves Gold! Not America!
Cohen says that he knows of no collusion and Trump and his extended family say that Cohen says that there was no collusion. Two different things and again Trump’s supporters are creating a dangerous situation. How do we know? Cohen said it during his testimony.
Back in the 19th century during The Dreyfus Affair things were more dangerous than they presently are. Jew,s were much more vulnerable and Dreyfus, though innocent, was a Jew. Violence broke out around the world and Jews were killed.
Colonel Picquart informed his friend Louis Leblois about the report that he had made with the evidence. This was a secret between the men. Leblois spoke to Auguste Scheurer-Kestner vice-president of the Senate of France who revealed the information to the top people in the French government. Jules Méline declared in the French Senate “There is no Dreyfus Affair. There is not now and can be no Dreyfus affair.” Sounds like no collusion?
As we expect to learn about the Mueller Report soon, we are being told that Republicans may not release the report. Have you read that Colonel Picquart gave his report (secretly) to Louis Leblois? Of course it was no longer a secret if Leblois knew. So you probably can conclude that the Republicans might try in vain to stop the release of the report and we have read that in the news. I just told you that there is Questionable Intelligence around Donald Trump. Didn’t I? Vivre la France! I mean Long Live Our Democracy! You will read the report.
