“Stool Pigeons” Turn on Trump
“Stool Pigeons” Turn on Trump by Bill Bonner – Bonner and Partners
Trouble ahead, Lady in red
Take my advice you’d be better off dead
Switchman’s sleeping, train hundred and two is
On the wrong track and headed for you
– “Casey Jones,” Grateful Dead
POITOU, FRANCE – And so… the trains gather speed.
The Ol’ Deep State Cannonball is chugging up from Washington… and the Manhattan Money Machine is barreling down from New York – headed straight for each other.
Our guess: When the two meet up, there will be Hell to pay.
By the end of last week, the folks on the political train had a new source of entertainment – a singing trio known as the “Stool Pigeons.”
Yes, Dear Reader, three of the president’s oldest and closest advisors have now “flipped.”
Singing tenor is Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer and former “punching bag.” And now, he’s been joined by Trump’s old pal, David Pecker, singing bass.
Pecker, publisher of the esteemed literary journal, National Enquirer, is said to have a whole safe full of hot torch songs, including “Is That All There Is?” by Karen McDougal and “You Gotta Give Me More Than That” by Stormy Daniels.
The third member of the trio is CFO of The Trump Organization, Allen Weisselberg, already famous in some music circles for his Nixon-era hit, “Follow the Money.”
The trio will do a medley of songs. Most of these tunes follow the usual formula: Boy meets girl. Boy gets girl between the sheets. Boy pays girl to keep quiet about it. Boy and his fixers figure out how to disguise payment.
But they get sloppy and, apparently, breach federal campaign finance laws.
This is bound to be a big hit; they’re sure to win a Grammy. And it’s not hard to figure out why. After all, we’ve all been there, right?
