In an Alternative Universe, There Is a Trump Who Cares About Us, and We Care About Things That Matter

In an alternative universe, there is a United States of America led by a president Donald Trump where people are actually focused on real issues that affect real people and there is a government and a news media that is focused on trying to find solutions to people’s actual problems. But we don’t live in that universe.

    • PS : Ted is of course dead wrong in not admitting that, despite no evidence capable of being presented to a court yet being presented – the nasty perps are just being provided with more rope with which to hang themselves – everything wrong in the US is the fault of those dastardly Russians ; i e, when it’s not the fault of the equally dastardly Chinese or, at times, the North Koreans, as shown in this Bloomberg article, which Ted might find of especial interest, in particular the following passage :

      The LAPD uses Palantir’s Gotham product for Operation Laser, a program to identify and deter people likely to commit crimes. Information from rap sheets, parole reports, police interviews, and other sources is fed into the system to generate a list of people the department defines as chronic offenders, says Craig Uchida, whose consulting firm, Justice & Security Strategies Inc., designed the Laser system. The list is distributed to patrolmen, with orders to monitor and stop the pre-crime suspects as often as possible, using excuses such as jaywalking or fix-it tickets. At each contact, officers fill out a field interview card with names, addresses, vehicles, physical descriptions, any neighborhood intelligence the person offers, and the officer’s own observations on the subject.


  1. Good question: Why *would* there be an investigation if there were no evidence? (Still waiting for a good answer … for over a year and a half now … ) At this point the fake news DastardlyRussiansGate hoax involves a far, far larger conspiracy than the fake moon landing & the fake spherical Earth hypothesis put together.

    Didja see that Mueller found evidence that Consigliori Cohen was in Prague? That being the second datum from the Steele Dossier that has been corroborated … or would be if the Steele Dossier existed. Which it doesn’t.
