The Departure

Donald Trump's highly controversial chief strategist Steven Bannon either resigned or was fired yesterday (details here and here), effective immediately.

Bannon was adored by the far right and loathed by many in the center and left and parts of the right because of his ties to the overtly racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-LGBT website Breitbart, which he formerly headed and to which he will return. Breitbart has been a critically important grass-roots support base for Trump.

At the moment, competing narratives exist in the mainstream media but are primarily of two sorts: (1) Bannon was fired and (2) it was an amicable departure. Time will tell which of those is correct.

If the Trump administration and Bannon are not at war from this point forward, then the White House status quoa probably will not change much.

But if this departure signals the beginning of a war between the Trump White House and Bannon's minions on the far right, what little support Trump has will continue to dwindle.

Bannon's exit may cause Trump's base to fracture and collapse, dividing into two camps, with each one smaller and less powerful.

If that happens, then Trump will be falling into the Richard Nixon basement. His departure from the White House will be sooner rather than later.

Alternatively, Bannon may remain loyal to the President himself but try to steer his administration from the outside through Breitbart and other far-right media ventures, making war on key individuals in the West Wing. That doesn't sound like something that would stablize Trump's White House and lead to a positive end.

All of this is speculation right now. It's too early to tell what the near-future will bring. Whatever the answer, we are certainly living in interesting times.

Stepdaddy Dean

The demanding stepfather here is Dean Phoenix, who started in porn in 1998, retired in 2011, and then came out of retirement last year to work once again. I could not find any interviews online about why he returned, but supposedly he works in a retail gig full time outside of porn. I wonder if his employer knows about his second career?

Corruption Inc.

While the back-and-forth about Trump's outrageous racist comments continues and he shows no signs of backing down, and while Congressional Republicans to a one refuse to give him any backup, it's important to remember that the President's odious remarks and opinions likely will not lead to his removal from office.

That's not to say there aren't other valid reasons, however.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is hopefully finding a lot of them during his criminal investigation into Trump's business and other practices. Earlier this week, The New Yorker magazine published an absolutely excellent, in-depth article by Adam Davidson (link here) about a previously little-reported and potentially criminal business deal between Trump and nefarious Russian parties in the Republic of Georgia that potentially involved bank fraud and money laundering.

This is the kind of potentially criminal behavior for which Mueller has assembled the best possible prosecutorial team. Trump's lawyers have tried to argue that investigating Trump's business is beyond a special counsel's law, but the law overwhelmingly is not on their side.

Quite simply, Mueller has all the powers of a federal prosecutor. And a federal prosecutor has the legal authority to investigate any and every suspected crime, no matter what that crime might be.

The Trump legal team's claim is as ludicrous as saying a federal agent couldn't arrest someone for murder, when evidence was found, if the agent started out investigating a bank robbery.

I urge you to read The New Yorker piece and share it with friends and associates. This is the kind of criminality that will bring Trump down.

Cuddly Gorilla

At 6'2 and 230 pounds, Arnie here looks like a big cuddly gorilla. There's a lot of big muscle to love here. The source website implies that he's straight, and he's only topped and not yet sucked cock on screen in the five scenes he's done to date, but who really knows.

The originals for these photos are larger than they appear below and are part of a huge collection with about three hundred photos from sixteen hardcore shoots, including many more shots of Arnie fucking other lads.

Indefensible

Shortly after I wrote yesterday's political post, Donald Trump plunged off the cliff. He effectively annulled his own statement opposing white supremacy and Nazi hate groups by, one again, tacitly giving them support.

He once again played the false equivalency card, but much more brazenly and offensively than before, effectively advocating that pro-Nazi and anti-Nazi are two equal sides and that pro-white supremacy and anti-supremacy are also two equal sides.

Absolutely fucking no, they are not the same. Both do not deserve equal time. Both do not deserve equal respect.

This country and its allies fought against and defeated the Nazi movement. Millions of Allied soldiers died liberating Europe and much of the rest of the world from fascist brutality. Members of my family died in that fight, and likely yours, too.

Dana Milbank at The Washington Post wrote an absolutely brilliant column yesterday (link here) titled "Trump just hit a new low." The original title to the piece was "It's looking more and more like the White Nationalist House" -- the Post changes their headlines throughout the day for no obvious reasons.

Milbank writes: "When Trump finally gave a canned and grudging disavowal of white supremacists, he was urged anew to say more, to be presidential, to bring the nation together. Well, late Tuesday, Trump said more and told the nation what he really thought. It was downright ugly."

Further on he writes: "'You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that,'" said Trump. "Nobody wants to say that because there is — and there can be — no moral equivalence between Nazis and those who oppose Nazis. But Trump saw them as equal."

Right on.

Read the piece and share it with all your friends. It's time to really turn up the heat on the GOP to get rid of this man.

He disgraces America every day he remains in the White House.

Angelo

This big uncut bloke has worked under a variety of names over the last ten years in porn, including Dean, Mark, and Honza, but most often as Angelo and primarily as a top. He's 6'4, 200 pounds, and from the Czech Republic.

Actions Matter More Than Words

Donald Trump may have renounced racism and white supremacy on Monday -- albeit unenthusiastically and only after intense bipartisan pressure -- but his actions speak louder than his empty words.

As detailed by The Hill (link here) and numerous other publications in recent days, Trump froze funding for programs to fight racism and neo-Nazis while also proposed completely cutting such projects in future budgets.

In recent weeks, Trump has quietly ordered the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies to focus exclusively on alleged Islamic terror groups in the United States and, unlike under previous Presidents, to ignore violent neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups.

Such a focus almost certainly was for political theater and feeding his false narrative about a country supposedly teeming with Islamic terrorists. In reality, the number of crimes committed within the United States by white supremacists far exceeds those by domestic Islamic terrorists.

This is a familiar pattern for Trump we've seen before. He says he has one stance -- allegedly against racism -- but his actions show he has the opposite stance: he embraces racist support and deliberately appeals to them with things like his birther lies.

He's done the same to the LGBT community. He says he's pro-LGBT -- in fact claims to be the most pro-LGBT President ever -- but his actions show the opposite: he's surrounded himself with anti-LGBT haters and quietly accepts support from anti-LGBT hate groups, even going as far as including some people from the latter organizations in his own administration.

Brawny Viking

The big uncut bruiser topping here went by a variety of names in porn but most commonly as Kevin Falk. Originally from Scandinavia, he stands 6'4 and weighs 220 pounds. He worked in porn from 2009 to 2012. He primarily topped but occasionally flip-fucked or bottomed.

Too Little, Too Late

Donald Trump -- finally -- spoke out against racism, Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists in an unenthusiastic statement delivered Monday, two full days after the horrific Charlottesville attack.

When you're outraged about something, you speak out immediately. You don't wait two days to say something and only after you've been repeatedly prodded to do so. You don't give a "muted and unpersuasive" statement, as Frank Bruni brilliantly characterized Trump's reluctance in a great opinion piece for The New York Times yesterday (link here).

In his piece, Bruni also comments about how, just hours earlier, Trump absolutely trashed via Twitter CEO Kenneth Frazier who resigned from a presidential advisory commission over the President's behavior following this past weekend's attack. Trump reacted to Frazier within minutes -- and Frazier happens to be African-American -- but the President waited days to say anything substantive about white supremacy.

I received an email after my piece yesterday appeared here from a reader who asked, "what does Charlottesville have to do with being gay, since gays weren't even attacked there?"

The answer is simple. Hate of any kind must not be tolerated. A society that refuses to speak out against white supremacism is also a society that will remain silent when someone attacks LGBT citizens. Or any non-white, non-straight person for that matter.

If we don't speak out now, who will speak out for us when we're attacked? Silence is not a solution.

Farm Fresh

The big bloke with the fantastic shoulders seen topping here is Brad Banks. He wrestled and played football in high school, went into the Army, and started doing cam jerkoff shows after he was discharged. That segued into legit modeling, personal training, and gay porn, where he almost always tops.

He's originally from Iowa and reminds me of some of the lads I knew during the part of my growing-up years that I spent in the American Midwest. He says he's mostly straight but embraces his bi side, too. He stands 5'10, weighs 205 pounds, and is in his late twenties.

Brad was previously featured here on the blog in May. Please note that the download photoset for that post is still available,

The originals for the new photos featured today are larger than they appear below and are part of a collection with sixty photos of Brad topping two different lads in two different shoots. To download the complete group in a free zipped folder, please click here.

Charlottesville

You probably heard about what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday. To recap: Far-right, white supremacist, and neo-Nazi people showed up for a "unite the right" parade, for which they initially had a permit that was later lawfully revoked because of the threat of violence. They were protesting removal of a local statute memorializing Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

Nonetheless, scores of far-right marchers and counterprotesters turned out and ended up brawling in the streets, with more minor injuries on both sides. Up to that point, the event was not unlike other far-right events in the United States that end up in fisticuffs with counterprotesters.

But then the unthinkable happened. An American neo-Nazi drove his car deliberately into protesters, according to officials, killing one person, critically injuring five more, and further injuring fourteen others. A police helicopter monitoring the event crashed shortly thereafter, killing both officers aboard.

When called upon to remark about the tragedy, Donald Trump gave a wishy-washy response. He refused to specifically condemn the white supremacists and instead lamented "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides."

Who else mowed down people with a car other than a white supremacist and Nazi sympathizer? Answer: no one.

Later, at a press event, where Trump was supposed to speak with the media, when he was specifically asked why he does not and has never denounced white supremacists, he ignored the inquiry and cowardly left the room without answering any questions (video here).

Finally, the next day, an administration spokesperson -- but not Trump -- released an overly broad statement that mentioned white supremacists, KKK, Nazis, and "all extremist groups." As The Washington Post noted (link here), "The White House’s clarification stopped far short of what a growing number of Republicans have urged the president to do: directly call out and condemn white supremacy."

Indeed, Trump's cowardice on this issue has been widely condemned by both Democrats and Republicans. Former George W. Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson blasted the President in an op-ed (link here) titled "Trump babbles in the face of tragedy." He noted how, unlike all previous Presidents, Trump is incapable of speaking to the nation with resolve at unsettled times.

Editor and journalist Josh Marshall was blunt in his assessment of why Trump is so reluctant to speak out against racists united by hate in a biting editorial (link here) titled "He’s One of Them." Marshall notes how Trump's initial comments not only failed to condemn the haters but actually subtly showed support for them when he said we should all "cherish our history" -- remember, the original protest was about removal of the Robert E. Lee statue.

It's painfully clear why Trump refuses to openly and loudly condemn white supremacists: many if not most of the movement's members support his presidency and actively campaigned for him. For that very reason, far-right neo-Nazi websites praised Trump for his comments following the tragedy (details here).

And the Trump/white-supremacy bond was plainly visible at the event itself -- some of the marchers actually wore red Trump campaign hats (example here).

Trump can quickly take to Twitter to bitch and moan about Rosie O'Donnell, but he's so hesitant to reject the white supremacists who support him.

Caspar's Itch

The big brawny lad here is currently going by the name Caspar in porn and has been featured a bunch of times on this blog before. The producer's webpage describes him as straight but has no problems with man-on-man action.

He may think he's straight but he certainly has a very scratchy bisexual itch he keeps needing to satisfy. He also is reported to be very much into dominant women and pegging. I think his subconscious may be crying out for a big hairy biker daddy to make him his bitch.

The previous photo posts on this blog featuring Caspar can be found here and here. Please note that all photo sets found via those links are still active and can be downloaded.

The new photos here today are part of a large group featuring more than four hundred shots of Caspar in two different sets flip-flopping with two different lads. To download the complete collection in a free zipped folder, you'll want to click here.

Focus on the Real Threats

Today's New York Times has an interesting opinion piece (link here) with the title "Trump Isn’t a Threat to Our Democracy. Hysteria Is."

I have friends who were convinced in 2008 that George W. Bush would declare himself President for life a few days before the end of his second term. I was sure that would never happen and I was right.

I'm already hearing friends (some of the same ones) already making the same claim about Donald Trump and the 2020 election. My reaction this time is the same as last time.

Trump is a disaster as President, one of the worst ever, if not the worst. He's weak, unfocused, confused, and a short-term threat. He is, in a phrase, a fuck-up of epic proportions.

Someone that incompetent doesn't have the skill set to pull off a complex coup making himself President for life. Trump already has significant resistance in his own party and is doing the opposite of building a power base.

As several pundits have already theorized in print, Trump is a lame-duck President six months into his first (and hopefully only) term.

That's not to say Trump doesn't pose a threat on multiple fronts, but those dangers won't bring down the democratic republic. He needs to be made as weak as possible, and the same for Pence and the GOP.

Impeachment and removal of Trump would be lovely, but they're not mandatory. Republicans have already wasted incredible political capital that will hurt them in the 2018 House of Representatives election and the 2020 national election.

We need to organize, mobilize, and document everything they're doing. But we also need to stop ourselves from panicking.

A Legendary Convergence

This is a fantastic four-way scene with Donnie Russio and a young Zak Spears, the only time I believe the two ever appeared together. Better yet, they flip-flop and are joined by Antonio Romis and the legendary Max Grand.

Zak has appeared on this blog several times before in video scenes, most of which are still active and can be found here.
