The Burden of Bad Management
In the last week, we have learned exactly who Donald J. Trump is and why he’s more than unhinged and unqualified to be president. My eyes and ears were caught by a statement from Pat Robertson. I respect his committed to God and his Holy Savior, but I rarely agree with his political statements. It became news when he pointed his gnarly finger at the White House.
On his 700 Club TV show, Robertson said, “I am absolutely appalled that the United States is going to betray those democratic forces in northern Syria.” He also offered that if Trump let the Turks invade northern Syria and attack the Kurds, he will lose his “Mandate of Heaven!” Wow, I had no idea that Trump was on God’s personal payroll, even though he seems to be on lots of payrolls these days.
Robertson called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan a “thug” and “dictator,” which proves that the “pious” religious broadcaster just might be more informed about geopolitical issues than our president. But then, no one ever said Trump knew much about global realities, well, except Trump himself. Robertson pointed out that there is a sizable Christian community among the Kurds.
Trump consistently told us that if we voted for Hillary Clinton America would be drawn into a war. Well, the Donald has just created a war with his bad management of the Syria situation. He threw the Kurds, our allies, under the bus, exposing them to squashing by the Turkish army. Once John Bolton left the administration, no one was left to “explain” things to Trump. We have just entered the most dangerous time of the century and Republicans don’t see their enabling as a potential threat to America’s security. And, oh yeah, North Korea has an atomic bomb. How did that happen?
Trump spends most of his time tweeting his discontent, racing to rallies to shout his lies and meeting with attorneys. He proves his distraction with his actions and schedule. He wastes time and jet fuel by standing on the north lawn screaming over the whine of Marine One. When can we get back to regular order with calm daily press briefings? When Donald Trump is ousted from office!
The Kurds have learned they cannot trust the USA when it comes to war and support. They did a deal with the devil and are now being repaid by the devil himself, Donald Trump. Surely, hundreds of thousands of Kurds will be displaced and thousands will lose their lives just because Trump failed to say NO to Turkey’s sultan in waiting.
It’s rather amazing that Trump didn’t see President Recep Tayyip’s strategy as nothing but a land grab. Trump probably thinks the Turkish resettlement plan is a good idea. Turkey takes some land, even it means killing a bunch of innocent people, then pushes all those immigrants who traveled to Turkey for safety into the newly “liberated” area. At worst, it’s ethnic cleansing, at best, it’s an invasion of another nation for the purpose of getting rid of unwanted people. I am totally appalled that the press and TV journalists called it a “military operation” rather than what it actually was, a fucking invasion.
I wonder if Trump has thought about doing the same thing on the Mexican border here. The entire world knows that Donald J. Trump cannot be trusted. What a horrible president and a contemptible human being! The time has come for America to cast off our political affiliations and come together to right this ship. Trump must be taken out of office as soon as possible. He simply isn’t smart enough to be president.

The book that tells it like it is…
Gold, God, Guns & Goofballs shows how we’ve wasted our GOLD on bad wars and corruption. While GOD is there for many people as a spiritual enrichment and the provider of glowing feelings, the truth is just praying and believing will not change our major arc. We don’t determine who gets a GUN. We aren’t sure if we have paramilitary groups ready to storm the White House or a White Castle. There is no control of weapons. The GOOFBALLS with the power constantly try to manipulate us into spending more money on bombs and tanks and wars. When all of our institutions are infected with neglect and fall in disrepair, we will only have ourselves to blame. This book is not an antidote for the left or right, it’s an accelerant to move the middle off their collective asses to go do something positive for America.
