Circuses struggling to find new clowns as top prospects continue to go into politics

Dumping a Steaming Pile of News on You Daily

Circuses are struggling to fill clown positions as top prospects are often heading into politics instead, it’s emerged.

The number of circus clowns has shrunk to a dangerously low level – and politics is being blamed for snatching up all the best prospects.

‘We used to have half a dozen clowns in our circus. Now we have just one because the rest have retired or gone into politics. And young prospects aren’t even considering a career in the circus any more,’ said Richard Majesty, a worried ringmaster.

‘You just have to look at the current political figures to see where they’ve snatched talent from us. Boris Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Jeremy Corbyn all would have made excellent clowns. Even across the pond, they have Donald Trump,’ Majesty sighed.

Circuses have found they just can’t compete with the money and attention that surrounds politics. Instead, a group of circuses are considering joining forces to become their own political party.

‘Although I doubt anyone will notice anything different about us,’ said Richard.

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House

By Michael Wolff

Little Brown Book Group (2018)

Book Review

The most remarkable aspect of this book is its blow-by-blow account of Team Trump – from his nomination in July 2016 to Steve Bannon’s firing in August 2017. Unlike prior presidential administrations, which are extremely guarded about their inner workings, Trump’s White House offered the media virtually unfettered access during his first nine months. According to Wolff this occurred for four main reasons: 1) Trump’s impulsive daily tweets 2) the constant “weaponized” leaks from warring Trump staffers* 3) Trump’s nightly rambling calls to wealthy supporters** and 4) his willingness to allow more public access to the Oval Office than any previous president.

While Wolff cite sources for his factual statements and quotes, the book has been carefully fact checked, in addition to being reviewed by two libel attorneys.***

As a psychiatrist, what I found most interesting about Fire and Fury is the insight it reveals into Trump’s psychological functioning. The current President is described by nearly everyone who has worked with him as extremely childlike, guileless, impulsive, undisciplined, incapable of following a game plan and impossible to communicate with. He trusts no one.

One of the few direct quotes in the book is from his former scheduler Katie Walsh: “It’s like trying to figure out what a child wants.”

My favorite quote, though, comes from Trump himself during a staff discussion about repealing Obamacare: “Why can’t Medicare simply cover everyone?”

Toning down Trump’s impulsiveness has been virtually impossible, though some staffers have been able to influence his behavior by winding him up.

Trump categorically refuses to read written briefings or watch PowerPoint presentations. He also refuses to listen to long verbal briefings and tends not to follow scripted statements. He always prefers to be the one talking, typically coming out with long rambling statements in which he frequently repeats himself.

Wolff’s introduction also confirms what many analysts have surmised: Trump didn’t intend to win the Presidency. His original plan was to use the media exposure to launch his own TV network. In fact, Trump refused to invest any of his own money in the campaign (although he loaned them $10 million).


*Prior to Bannon’s departure in August 2017, there was no White House chain of command and no clearly defined duties for any of its staff. Four discrete factions – Bannon, Jared Kushner/Ivana Trump (Bannon called them Jarvanka) nominal Chief of staff Reince Priebus and Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway were at continual war with one another in controlling Team Trump. According to many sources, Trump essentially served as his own chief of staff and press secretary, in that he phone reporters, dictated quotes and personally reviewed all press releases.

**The recipients of these calls (concerning unfavorable media and Trump’s “incompetent” staff) were so alarmed by them that they often felt compelled to pass on their content to White House staff and/or reporters.

***The Trump family is notoriously litigious, and Wolff and his publisher must be able to document the book’s assertions in a libel suit.

 

Dr. John Reizer: Gambling With Your Life

American healthcare consumers are gambling with their lives each and every day. By taking various prescription and non prescription medications, that have deadly side effects attached to them, human Guinea pigs regularly roll the dice when they swallow, inject, and inhale suppressive pharmaceutical products that block the regular expressions of physiology in their bodies.

Here’s the wager most people are willing to make: I’ll bet my future health and well-being will not be irreparably damaged from the drugs I decide to take. The payoff; I will hopefully receive some sort of temporary change in the symptoms I am experiencing, or a lab value will move in a direction that’s been touted by experts as being a good one.

How crazy and delusional are people when they place their faith and trust in toxic products that have been manufactured by for profit drug companies? The short answer, pretty damn crazy and delusional. More

Stop the horrific abuse of Michigan’s vulnerable by attorneys and judges.

Leave a comment

For almost 30 years, tens of thousands of Michigan’s elderly and developmentally disabled citizens have been subjected to neglect, abuse, torture, forced isolation, exploitation and embezzlement by the state’s probate judges and attorneys, professional guardianship companies and public administrators. 

Declared incapacitated “wards” by a probate court judge, with little or no corroborating medical evidence, Michigan’s most vulnerable are stripped of their statutory, civil, constitutional. and human rights and handed over to a court appointed guardian.

Even though wards are innocent, it is a life sentence during which they are forced from their homes and into a long-term nursing care, assisted living or unlicensed group home with subhuman living conditions. 

In as little as a year, wards have been rendered completely indigent and reliant upon social services and benefits such as Medicaid. Their homes are sold off, their savings accounts, IRAs, investment accounts, cars, personal belongings, keepsakes, heirlooms and jewelry stolen.

Recent media investigations have implicated guardians and judges in the forced separation of families and isolation of the vulnerable; massive over-abolishing [robate,billing real estate fraud; and missing assets that number in the millions of dollars.

An in-depth investigation into elder abuse at the Detroit-area Oakland County Probate Court found campaign ties between Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Oakland County Probate Court Chief Judge Kathleen Ryan. 

Nessel’s Elder Abuse Task Force has accomplished nothing.

  • Judges already do not obey the law as written so it’s announced legislative probate reform initiatives are pointless. Reforms are pointless without consequences to those who have flagrantly violated and continue to violate Michigan law.
  • Nessel’s recent, unexplained firing of public administrators John Yun. Jennifer Carney, Thomas Brennan Fraser and Robert Kirk accomplished nothing since they can still take roles as court-appointed guardians and conservators.
  • Nessel and Whitmer both know about the abuse of Michigan’s vulnerable by it’s probate courts. State Court Administrator Milton Mack,Jr.l and the Michigan Supreme Court have actively shielded probate court judges from investigation. 

We, the undersigned, demand that the abuse, neglect and exploitation Michigan’s elderly and developmentally disabled individuals by the state’s probate courts must stop!

We demand criminal investigations into any and all probate attorneys, public administrators, guardianship companies and judges suspected of criminal behavior and abuse of power. 

We demand investigations not initiatives.

We demand the immediate resignation of the State Court Administrator. 

We demand an explanation as to why no action has been taken against judges or their appointees who have donated to or accepted donations from the Nessel and Whitmer campaigns. 

#explainyourselfdana. #investigationsnotinitiatives. 

 

 

 

State of Florida sued for trafficking and abuse of elderly under guardianship

SE Texas Record

By David Yates | Sep 17, 2019

SAN ANTONIO – A group of adult children sued the state of Florida’s governor and attorney general in Florida Northern District Court, alleging that, under court appointed guardianship, their parents’ estate, assets, 401k funds, social security money, jewelry, cars and homes are being stolen.

After all is liquidated or redistributed, the senior citizens under these alleged unconstitutional court appointed guardianships are starved, denied medical care or prescribed high doses of toxic psychotropic medication to intentionally cause death, according to a press release.

Plaintiffs Barbara Stone, Lesa Martino and Patty Reid are collectively calling for an executive order from President Trump to the FBI and the Department of Justice to enforce the law and criminally investigate the Defendants.

“The Florida guardianship statute is being used as a pretense of legitimacy for an immoral, inhumane, barbaric color of law proceeding wherein judges are working together with attorneys and guardians to abuse vulnerable adults,” wrote the Plaintiffs in their Sept. 5 complaint.

Governor Rick DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody are Defendants named in the lawsuit along with Florida Senate Chairman Bill Galvano, Florida Speaker of the House John Oliva, Office of Public and Private Guardians Director Carol Berkowitz who recently resigned along with the state’s Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis and Secretary of Elder Affairs Richard Prudom.
