Robert Mueller Can’t Please Everyone

So, let me be frank, son. Honestly, it’s amazing to see people’s reactions to situations when the outcome isn’t what they wanted. On the real, that assessment can be used for both the Democrats and the Republicans, man. The fact is, Robert Mueller plainly laid out his findings about Donald Trump and Russia. All in all, both sides are only mad because the truth isn’t enough to flatly push their respective agendas.

Ok, for those who missed it, Special Counsel Mueller testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee. Now, on paper, his testimony was supposed to shed light on his report regarding the Trump campaign, Russian interference, collusion and obstruction. In reality, both the Right and the Left were looking for tidbits to bolster their respective arguments about Trump’s presidency. The “problem” is, Mueller’s assertions don’t fit nicely in any particular box, fam.

Look, here’s the God‘s honest truth, bruh: Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential election, members of Trump’s staff interacted with shady Russian motherfuckers and Trump actively tried to circumvent the subsequent investigation. Now, with all of that being said, both sides of the political landscape are unsatisfied, son. I mean, the Democrats are unsatisfied because they can’t just string Trump up and throw him in the ocean. The Republicans are unsatisfied because the obstruction cloud still hovers very firmly over 45. Basically, this is entire situation is grey when folks want it to be black and white.

Now, based on Mueller’s report and testimony, here’s what we know: Trump’s only saving grace is the fact that he’s a sitting president. Like, the Committee straight up asked Mueller if Trump could be charged with obstruction of justice once he left office. In response, Mueller said “yes,” man. So, I don’t know what else people want, fam. Listen, people wanted Mueller to get to the bottom of what happened and he did. Meaning, his part of the job is over, bruh. All I know is, the ball is, and has always been, in Congress‘ court. Shit, if they don’t want to do anything about Trump’s tomfoolery, then what is Mueller supposed to do, son?

In the end, I’ll tell everyone reading this what I told my wife. Ultimately, to me, the scariest part of this current climate is not the racism, classism or all-out bigotry. By and by, it’s the assault on the truth, man. All I can say is, partisanship used to be based on different sides arguing about what the facts mean. Now, people don’t even acknowledge that facts are facts, fam. At the end of the day, we know what Trump did, we know what his team did and we know what Russia did. However, that doesn’t seem to be enough to move the needle, bruh. *Sigh* That is all. LC out.

FaceApp: Putin’s Favorite Application

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, this post has nothing to do with Vladimir Putin, man. Then again, this post may have everything to do with Putin, fam. The fact is, none of us really know where our data goes after we freely give it out. For me, that’s the inherent problem, bruh. All in all, I think the lot of us needs to fall back from all of these trends and internet shenanigans.

Ok, for those who don’t use social media, a particular photo-editing application has been taking over. Now, everyone on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter seems to be using FaceApp. Moving on, the app has the ability to alter a person’s picture, making them appear younger, older, of a different gender or any other combination of things. Recently, folks have been abusing the app and making themselves look like grandparents. In any case, the trend might’ve already jumped the shark and it’s only been a couple of days.

Now, with all of that being said, allow me to get into my conspiracy theorist bag. So, does anybody know where all of our information goes? Better yet, does anybody actually read the privacy terms for these apps? First, the company that owns FaceApp, Wireless Lab, is a Russian-based organization. Second, the company not only owns all of the content, but also logs cookies, IP addresses, browser information, etc. On top of that, I just don’t trust anything that can be used for facial recognition, son.

Keeping it a buck, this post isn’t really about Russia or any political hack-jobs. Side bar, I still don’t trust Russia as far as I can throw them, man. Given all of the fuckery they’ve pulled off in our election process, I wouldn’t put anything past them, fam. Anyway, the grander point is, where do we draw the line, man? Like, when will we stop giving all of these companies our data, bruh? Shit, Mark Zuckerberg alone probably knows more about us than we do. So, why are we giving additional apps our faces, son? I mean, maybe I’m paranoid, but we legitimately have no control over what they do with our likeness, brethren.

In the end, put the cotdamn phone down, son. Ultimately, The Man is listening to our phone calls, 23andMe has our DNA and FaceApp now has our faces. By and by, don’t be surprised when the powers that be start creating cyborgs that look like us and can mimic our conversations. Sound crazy? Well, we already gave these companies all of the data they need, man. James Cameron done already warned us about the T-1000, fam. That is all. LC out.

Donald Trump Is Vladimir Putin’s B*tch

Listen, let’s just skip the pleasantries, son. On the real, even if someone is a staunch Donald Trump supporter, they have to admit that yesterday was a fucking travesty, man. I mean, his post-meeting press conference with Vladimir Putin was one of the worst things I’ve ever witnessed, fam. Look, the American people had to witness the fucking President of the United States grovel at the feet of a foreign leader. All I know is, when will enough be fucking enough, bruh?

Ok, for those who missed it, yesterday was a complete and utter shit-show. Now, I already wrote about my skepticism of a closed-door meeting between Trump and Putin. However, I never thought the aftermath would be so insane, son. Like, I don’t even know where to begin with the nonsense, man. Shit, I could talk about the fact that Trump believes Putin over the U.S. intelligence agencies about Russian election meddling. Hell, I could even talk about the fact that Putin openly stated that he wanted Trump to win. In any case, their joint press conference was high-level fuckery, fam.

Look, here’s something that Trump doesn’t seem to understand: there’s a difference between meddling and collusion. Now, Robert Mueller‘s investigation is trying to determine whether or not Trump’s campaign conspired with foreign entities. However, the meddling part has already been proven, bruh. Like, we have unequivocal proof that Russian agents fucked with our election process, son. The problem is, Trump has too much pride to even admit this, man. Real talk, he simply refuses to acknowledge that outside influences helped him win the Presidency. In his mind, only his “greatness” propelled him to the White House.

So, here we are, fam. The American public has reached the point where our “leader” openly and frequently sucks up to a hostile nation. Listen, at this point, I don’t know how to explain what we’re witnessing, bruh. Keeping it a buck, I have no idea why Trump is so hell-bent on appeasing Putin, son. I don’t know if it’s because of potential business ventures or if Putin really has some dirt on him, man. Either way, Trump willfully betrayed his own country in favor of a foreign dictator. All in all, he disgraced every last one of us, people.

In the end, *sigh*. Ultimately, I don’t know what else to say, son. By and by, I’ve been legitimately baffled since yesterday, man. All I know is, I am still thoroughly confused about what I watched, fam. At the end of the day, Donald Trump cares WAY more about Russia than America, bruh. Frankly, the Republicans have to make a choice, folks. Are they going to stand up for this country, or are they going to continue doing the bidding of a traitor? The choice is theirs. That is all. LC out.

Why Is Trump Meeting With Putin?

So, I’m going to keep this post short today, son. Frankly, I don’t have a ton to say, man. On the real, I only have one simple question, fam: why exactly is Donald Trump meeting with Vladimir Putin? Like, what is the precise objective of this one-on-one meeting, bruh? In addition, why the fuck is the meeting one-on-one in the first place? All in all, my “spider-sense” is tingling like a motherfucker right now, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Trump is currently meeting with Putin in Helsinki, Finland. Apparently, the two “world leaders” want to hash out the differences between the United States and Russia. Now, it’s no secret that Trump has a love affair with Putin, son. I mean, he’s been singing Putin’s praises since the campaign trail, man. In any case, their relationship is highly problematic because Trump simply refuses to admit that Russia interfered with our election process. So, why should anyone feel confident about a closed-door meeting between these two men?

Now, before I continue, let me put some things into perspective, fam. Look, regardless of whether or not someone believes that the Trump administration conspired with Russia, it is a FACT that Putin’s country hacked the Democrats. Shit, Robert Mueller JUST indicted twelve Russian intelligence officers for hacking emails, bruh. So, we don’t even have to debate the tomfoolery, son. Real talk, we cannot trust Putin and neither should Trump, man.

Look, the problem is the fact that Trump can’t accept that a foreign entity helped him beat Hillary Clinton. Listen, like I said before, we can speculate whether or not the Trump team actively worked with Russian officials. However, we already have verifiable proof that Russia meddled with our election, fam. With that being said, it’s beyond me that Trump has so much fucking faith in Putin, bruh. Like, we have years upon years of evidence of Putin’s treachery, son. Plainly put, we can’t trust that fucking dude as far as we can throw him, man.

In the end, this entire scenario is sketchy as fuck, fam. Ultimately, we have a foolish president meeting with a conniving president in a closed-off setting. By and by, I don’t see what good can come of this, bruh. At the end of the day, I’m deeply troubled by what I’m seeing right now, son. *Sigh* I don’t even know what else to say, man. LC out.

Can I Have Unbiased News?

So, I won’t lie, son. I’m tired of the news, man. No, I’m not tired of current events, but I’m tired of the way these stories are presented to me, fam. Like, can I just have the regular fucking news, bruh? Without a talking head telling me how to interpret it? Look, people are always quick to blame Fox News for the degeneration of journalism. Side note, they are BY FAR the most egregious, folks. I mean, let’s just be real here. But, Fox is not the only culprit in this clusterfuck of media, people. All in all, EVERY news network is to blame for the biased broadcasting presented to the public.

Ok, before I continue, I want everyone to look at this article on Deadspin‘s The Concourse. Listen, writer Timothy Burke put together a video of content across numerous television stations owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group. In the video, DOZENS of news anchors can be seen reciting the same rhetoric, emphasizing Donald Trump‘s fictitious war on “fake news.” Now, when I say the “same rhetoric,” I mean these anchors are actually saying the SAME EXACT WORDS across multiple broadcasts. Shit, how the fuck are people supposed to get unbiased news when the presenters are LITERALLY reading from a script, son?

Now, let me be clear, man. Fox News isn’t the only evil entity in this equation, fam. Hell, MSNBC loves to get in on the bullshit, bruh. On the real, I already shitted on Rachel Maddow in the past for trying to connect dots between Trump and Russia with no verifiable proof. In addition, I remember when Don Lemon had a LONG run of saying fuckity-fuck shit about race on CNN. Keeping it a buck, I can’t watch ANY of these networks anymore, son. All of their content has an angle and I’m fucking sick of it, people.

In the end, I don’t even know how to fix this problem, son. Ultimately, these companies benefit from spinning these tales, man. At the end of the day, the American public is the only group that loses, fam. By and by, we can never come to a resolution about any of the issues because we’re never given accurate information. *Sigh* Where’s Ted Koppel when we need him, bruh? LC out.

Robert Mueller Is Putting Cases On All You B*tches!

Disclaimer: Everyone should read the title in Denzel Washington’s voice from Training Day. That is all.

So, shit just got real, huh? After all of the talk about Robert Mueller’s investigation, heads are starting to roll, son. With that being said, I’d be remiss if I didn’t get these jokes off about all of the fuckity-fuck shit going on in Donald Trump’s inner circle. In any case, let’s take a deep dive into all of the shit that Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos have gotten themselves into, man.

Ok, for those living under a rock, the shitshow began on Friday, fam. As the week came to a close, word got out that a sealed indictment was underway. From that standpoint, it was highly likely that someone was going to get arrested, bruh. Now, in light of that information, I assumed that Manafort was going to be the first to go down. Shit, after the FBI raised his crib back in August, it was only a matter of time before he was in a world of hurt, folks. Moving on, I was proven right when Monday came around. However; I would’ve never guessed the type of dirt that they have on him, people.

Basically, Trump’s former campaign chairman is a scammer, son. Since around 2005, he’s been laundering millions of dollars through overseas shell companies. Both him and his adviser, Rick Gates, have been living their best Joanne The Scammer life for well over a decade. As it stands, their fraud was still going on even after Manafort came aboard Trump’s team. Anyway, both men have been officially charged and are currently out of bail. In addition, both have pleaded not guilty to the accusations.

Now, the wildest part is, this isn’t even the wildest part of the story, son. Frankly, George Papadopoulos is the bigger news, man. Look, although Manafort and Gates have been involved in massive amounts of fuckery, the White House can still maintain plausible deniability. However; Papadopoulos’ tale is where shit gets interesting, fam. To begin, he’s already pled guilty to lying to federal agents. So, what did he lie about exactly? Russia, bruh. Russia.

As we now know, Papadopoulos, Trump’s former foreign policy adviser, was actively working with Kremlin-connected clowncakes to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. To make matters worse, in his own correspondence, he stated that he wanted someone low-level to meet with them in order to keep the heat away from Trump. Son, that has conspiracy written all over it! Real talk, the situation is so bad for Papadopoulos that he didn’t even try to fight the charges, man. The way I see it, I wouldn’t be surprised if he started rolling on everyone, fam. Shit, let the snitching begin!

In the end, all I can do is laugh at this, bruh. On the real, I doubt we’ve seen the last of the indictments, folks. Hell, I know Michael Flynn is somewhere sweating right now, son. Ultimately, a bunch of corrupt people were/are on Trump’s squad, man. Am I supposed to believe that he’s innocent of ALL of the fuckery? Give me a break, fam. I ain’t that dumb. LC out.

Does North Korea REALLY Want Smoke?

Ok, look, I’ve talked about the possibility of World War III a few times, son. Now, even though I was always serious, a part of me didn’t really believe it would go down, man. However; North Korea is out here WILIN’, fam! I mean, it seems like they really want some static, bruh. All I know is, after their latest hydrogen bomb test, the world might really be headed to No Man’s Land, people.

So, for those who missed it, this past Sunday, North Korea detonated its sixth nuclear bomb. This came hours after a picture of Kim Jong-un was released, where he appeared to be inspecting a hydrogen bomb. Now, this is notable because North Korea is claiming to have a functioning warhead that can fit in a missile. Basically, these muhfuckas might have a reliable nuke now, son! All in all, shit is rapidly getting real and the United States has a tough choice on its hands.

Now, I never thought I’d see the day when I would say this, but I agree with Vladimir Putin, man. Sanctions against North Korea are useless, man. Like, Jong-un and company don’t give a fuck about non-military consequences. For whatever reason, North Korea seems to actually want war, fam. So, the question is, do we give in to conflict? At this point, if we do go to war, it will probably end up being nuclear. In addition, based on the fact that Russia and China also have nukes, we all might be SUPER fucked, bruh!

In the end, shit is getting thick out here, son. Keeping it a buck, I don’t even have any answers, man. All I can say is, I’m DEFINITELY following this situation closely, fam. Ultimately, I don’t expect much from Donald Trump, but he CAN’T fuck this up, people! If he does, we might not be around long enough to fix the problem. By and by, can someone tell Jong-un to chill? Listen, he won’t win this conflict, but the collateral damage just isn’t worth it, bruh. That is all. LC out.
