A whole load of codswallop

No, I haven’t written in a while.  Reason: the big hubbub of last week meant nothing.  What was the big hubbub of last week?  Well, there were a few, one tragic (the London Bridge incident, over which Trump spared not a second to make an ass of himself).  But the one we are concerned with here is the Paris climate agreement.  Of course — probably due to the influence of Bannon’s booze-laden presence — Trump said he was unilaterally making the decision to pull the U.S. out of the agreement.  I can’t find any information that says he can revoke what is essentially a treaty on his own, but…

KABOOM, the media exploded, and so did the public, and so did the scientists.  Trump’s approval rating sank to 36%, but frankly I’m surprised it’s that high.  Governors and big-city mayors boldly announced that even if Trump wouldn’t honor the accord, they would.  That’s not to mention what the vast majority of the rest of the nations in the world did.

But they all missed one thing:  Trump’s announcement meant nothing.  Do you hear me?  Nothing.  Doodley-squat.  Naught.  Zero.  Nothing.  (By the way, the supposed Saudi arms deal also turned out to be a large blob of nothing; it never happened beyond an apparent few verbal agreements.)

Why do I say it’s nothing?  Because of this: Trump isn’t going to be anywhere near the Oval Office in January 2020 — and I think on some level even he realizes this — and that’s the earliest date the U.S. can pull out of the climate accord.  Just like the thing where he supposedly saved us so much money on the new Air Force One (which will be used by a future president, not Trump), he effectively threw this one in the lap of whichever poor slob is occupying the Oval Office in January, 2020.

And so I say, that’s enough of that.

Far more important things are happening, and to explain all that I leave you with Keith Olbermann’s latest video.

Additionally, keep in mind that a woman has been arrested for espionage.  Why?  Because she leaked NSA intelligence that Russia hacked U.S. election software.

This was something we already knew for several reasons: (1) Trump was complaining over a month before election day that the election was “fixed,” which, given his gift for projection, told me something about what he was doing in the background; (2) people were complaining on election day that their votes were being changed by machines before their very eyes — from Clinton to Trump, never the other way around; (3) Trump mysteriously won Florida, a state he had been strongly projected to lose; (4) in several of the states where Trump won — at least a few of which he had also been projected to lose — he won by consistent and therefore unlikely margins.  In the end Clinton won anyway, but oddly enough she did not collect sufficient electoral votes to gain the Oval Office.  And that was sealed by a totally corrupt Electoral College, which has a history of doing such things.

So like I said, we already knew the election software had been tampered with.  All this woman — who is a hero — did was confirm what we already knew if indeed she leaked the NSA’s intel.  My question is, what’s the big secret at this point?  Is someone privately hoping that it will all be shoved under some big carpet and forgotten and Trump can go on being a lunatic and everything will be okay, even when he steals the election again in 2020?

Let me get this straight as well: Jared Kushner can try to establish a back-channel to the Kremlin and not lose his security clearance, let alone his job (whatever that is — we’re actually not sure and definitely it’s not in the Constitution), and don’t even mention his freedom.  But whoever-this-was leaks some incredible info about Russian hacking, confirming what we already knew, and she’s arrested as a spy?

Someone explain that to me.
