TEMPER TANTRUM TRUMP

The Flaws of the President’s Personality

Just look at who we elected America. There are people on the right and people on the left. Some people are right, and others are wrong. The question of whether we hired a normal person as the leader of the free world was answered long ago. Donald Trump shows his weaknesses and flaws every day. He wanted to be the big act in the big tent and the opening act of this crazy circus, but is this painted elephant truly good for America?

The tweet from Sunday (5-20-2018) shows this man’s inability to work behind the scenes on any aspect of governance, “I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!”

With ten grieving families in Texas, we have a president who changes the subject. He wants to force reporters away from asking about North Korea. He’s angry that people on TV are making fun of him about his pitch for a Nobel Peace prize. As we know, the Donald cannot contain himself when he feels like he is being attacked or that people are questioning his every opinion. Some of his ideas are outright insane.

By trying to use the Justice Department as a spear against his “enemies,” the Donald has crossed the line of how a president should conduct business in the White House. But his followers don’t care, they are just watching a bad TV show. The funniest part of the President’s tweet was this part “…and will do so officially tomorrow…” as if what he tweets is some out-of-body experience that has nothing to do with his “official” position as President of the United States. He doesn’t comprehend that when he tweets, he is making policy. It’s funny, in a frightening way.

In the end, will we find out that Donald J. Trump was so defensive through this investigation of Russian interference in our election because he knew that he had some involvement? Maybe he thought he was pulling off some great scam, like he always did in business. What he inherited, however, were the pressures and power of the presidential office, not some deal he can walk away from. It surely doesn’t seem like he is he ready to do this job.

It’s kings who invoke the phrase, “I hereby demand,” only they use the word decree,” and this is the beginning of the end. There are many from the opposing party who are attempting to nudge this guy out of office. Then there are people from the far right and far left who cannot ponder any thought without their filters blocking any logical sunlight. America wasn’t built to have presidents impeached. We can slap their hands, we can take a ceremonial vote, but no president has ever been impeached. That would be the final act in this circus and would surely bring down the house.

The real question is what would be left as we fold up the tent and put away the beams and chairs? Would the nation get back to normal with someone like Mike Pence as President? What about the North Korean deal? Would Kim Jong-Un want to meet with the second-string player? Would Mike Pence just pardon Trump and his family?

We hear that President Trump is a “transactional” president. I used to think that was a good term, until I dug into the meaning. Now I see it as a flaw. Transactional means relating to the conducting of business, especially buying or selling. Can a president be an affective executive thinking that every action and decision is based on buying and selling? That would mean that deal making supersedes diplomacy and that winning a deal is more important than governing. The con that was played on the American people was that government would be better with a successful businessperson running things. How did that work out, America?

Trump is using his role as president to benefit himself. He attacks Amazon because its founder, Jeff Bezos, owns the Washington Post which is critical of the administration. He ordered the Post Office to increase Amazon’s postal rate to get back at Bezos. Now he is clearly using the Justice Department to interfere with the investigation into his campaign and Russian interference in the election. He has rolled back regulations at the Environmental Protection Agency to get back at Obama. He exited the Paris Accord and the Iran Nuclear deals because they were not his inventions. He has never read most of the agreements he walked away from.

His attempts to destroy Obamacare are another example of getting rid of anything that was created by his predecessor. It’s a not a conflict of ideals or ideas, but rather a war against Obama and Hillary Clinton. When does it become his presidency?

Trump played president right after the Parkland shootings in Florida with a White House photo/video op. He said he is going to do something. Then he had dinner with the NRA and did nothing he claimed he would do. He LIED TO THE SURVIVORS and insulted the families of the fallen by going to the NRA convention with a pledge to protect the Second Amendment, thereby showing he had no true empathy. Now he has another school shooting to ignore.

His rants, raves and insanely inappropriate, maybe even illegal, tweets continue. The Great Orange Leader’s goal is to trash the Justice Department. If this scandal ends up in the courts, Trump will discredit the Judicial branch. And when the army comes to extract him from the Oval Office, he will tell us that the U.S. Army is an arm of the deep-state. He’s a paranoid, unstable lunatic. The sooner we get rid of him the better. He’s bad for America.

THE RAGE OF RUDY

Trump Gets His Roy Cohn

There is something very McCarthy-like about all this recent Trump stuff. Joseph McCarthy was the U.S. Senator from Wisconsin between 1947 and 1957. McCarthy investigated what he called un-American activities. which he and his cronies claimed were driven by communist convictions. McCarthy’s attorney was a man named Roy Cohn, who later became a mentor and fixer for a young Donald Trump.

Trump is frustrated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal from the Russian Interference investigation. Trump was quoted by several sources to have complained, “Where is my Roy Cohn?” The Donald thinks that he should have the same kind of “protection” President Kennedy had with his brother, Robert, being the Attorney General. It’s as if our Great Orange Leader views the Attorney General as the President’s personal lawyer, rather than the head of the Department of Justice.

The susceptibility of this president to blackmail is alarming. He paid women for their silence about relationships, however far they went. He and his fixer, Michael Cohen, felt a need for six figure payoffs to women to, as they put it, not talk about things that didn’t happen.

And Donald Trump has such thin skin, that any negative comment on TV or in the press determines how he will act. He will even reverse course when the Fox News pundits and talking heads suggest he is wrong. He is totally controlled by media coverage. He is his own press agent with his Twitter account at the ready with no legal or logical filter on his output.

Donald J. Trump is open to strong pitches by people he likes or who are from New York. He relates to Rudy Giuliani because, in a lot of ways, Rudy is like Trump. The fastball con job Rudy has presented shows he is not the great prosecutor he once was. His arrival has only added more disruption to the White House. It’s obvious that Rudy and Trump are not coordinating with the other attorneys on the team. Why would a spokesperson for the President in such delicate legal matters make things worse?

When Rudy disfigures his face and pops out his eyeballs before he speaks, he looks like a demonic character in a horror movie. When one of your legal counselors says, “I’m ‘focused on the law more than the facts right now” every law professor and judge in the nation is throwing up with these comments. Any law scholar will tell you that the only aspects of law that mean anything are the facts.

Roy Cohn, Trump’s mentor, was a dirty player. Cohn was disbarred by the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court in 1986 for unethical conduct and died less than two months later. This means either there is a God, or there is some justice in the Department of Justice. Trump probably thinks that Rudy is his Roy Cohn, not even close.

When calmer, more reasonable thinkers, like Trump’s current lawyers, tell him to stop tweeting or talking about legal matters, Trump’s skin itches to punch back. He wants a return of the good old days when Roy Cohn went after the enemies and used ANY METHOD to get a win. Trump is McCarthy.

Trump’s mentality about everything he says and does harkens back to a day when white people were on top, money and fame were true American successes and power was something there for the taking. Trump’s attempt to take us back has only one warrior against it, the law.

Trump is being played by Rudy and he doesn’t care because the end justifies the means. Rudy wants Trump to fire Jeff Sessions so he can become Attorney General. Giuliani must have pitched Trump with the idea that he alone can end this “witch hunt.”

Rudy has convinced Trump that he can sit down and with “Bobby Mueller” to negotiate a peace treaty. In Rudy’s defense of Trump, he sprinkles just enough truth to get Donald into trouble. Giuliani is clearly out of his league and, in the end, will prove to be simply another of the terrible mistakes Trump has made. Rudy will be gone shortly.

What if the Russians did penetrate the center of Trump’s campaign? What if Russian banks funneled money into the National Rifle Association, which then spent $30 million on ads for Trump? What if it we learn that more than two women were payed hush money after having affairs with Trump? Hey, Donald was just trying to “Be Best.” What if it comes to pass that Trump’s grand plan on tariffs and treaties sends the world into a financial slump? I’m sure we can all afford $3.75 a gallon for gas.

Will taking Trump out of office and replacing him with Mr. Milquetoast, Mike Pence, make America great again? Probably not, but somewhere in this passion play we will learn what we are made of and who we want to be.

Rudy’s rage is fake. Trump is fake. They are bad actors playing parts they think the base wants. But you cannot jerk around the system for too long before those West Virginia coal miners realize their jobs are not coming back. The stay-at-home mom in Milwaukee will eventually comprehend that the “glorious, beautiful” tax cut didn’t offset the increases in healthcare costs and she must seek employment.

Giuliani is the problem with politics today. He is attempting to promote himself while making things worse for his client. In the end, we will learn that Rudy was just a pacifier in the mouth of our baby president to make him feel good. Trump has no logic. After he checks off his list of campaign promises, he can sit back and watch America pay for his big changes. It’s just like all his business failures. Someone else will pay.

FEDS RAID TRUMP ATTORNEY

Attorney–client privilege is dead!

There is a big difference between someone “breaking into” your property and a group of G-men knocking on your door holding a search warrant. We’re about to see that attorney-client privilege is not a loophole to get away with committing a crime.

If any people in the Trump circle who may have been witnesses to wrongdoing, or who may have been involved in illegal activities, believe that being a buddy with the Donald is a “get-out-of-jail” card, they are terribly mistaken.

Michael Cohen is a lawyer who is so close to the President and his companies that he has the status of a fixer and consigliere. This makes him more than an attorney of record. He was an employee of the Trump Organization. Trump and Cohen are so tight that, according to Cohen, he paid hush money to a porn star out of his own pocket without even telling Trump. This is bad legal form and, in the state of New York where Cohen practices, it’s a kind of proxy power of attorney that could place Cohen’s legal license in jeopardy.

When we heard from candidate Trump that he would hire the best people and that the government would be a well-run, efficient machine, we wondered what would happen. Now we know. This is a giant, rolling ball of confusion. Things said and things done have no clarity or purpose. The quick knee-jerk reactions and reparsing of verbal pronouncements by the President’s staff show a lack of organization, forethought and concentration.

We get it. One of the people who knows more about what Trump did and didn’t do over the last ten years has been raided. His computers, phones and tax documents were confiscated by the FBI. The Donald is completely freaked out. He opened a high-level meeting with top-ranking military personnel with these words, “So, I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys—a good man, it’s a new level of unfairness.” Trump’s unscripted moment continued with, “It’s an attack on our country in a true sense. It’s an attack on what we all stand for.”

It’s funny that the President would use the same words to describe this federal crime investigation as many intelligence experts and Congressional oversight members used to describe what Russia was doing during our elections. Trump has never used the words “attack on what we stand for“ to describe the interference and conspiracy to disrupt our elections.

With a meeting to decide what to do about the possible chemical warfare being waged against the Syrian people by their own leader, our kingpin was sitting with his arms folded across his chest in a protectionist position, whining about this latest move by our Justice Department. His priorities are obviously misdirected and horribly inefficient. He should have never let the press into that Pentagon meeting. It’s clear that he can’t kept his eye on the ball and concentrate on being President. If you have nothing to hide, then stop telling the world you have nothing to hide.

What our Great Orange Leader doesn’t comprehend is that Mueller’s investigation didn’t carry out these raids. Here’s what we learned from Michael Cohen’s attorney, Stephen Ryan, “Today, the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients.”

If the State of New York and the U.S. Attorney’s office there handles the case against Michael Cohen, Trump will not be able to pardon Cohen. This is a brilliant move by the Special Counsel’s office. It puts Cohen in a bind and cuts the communication cord between the White House and the Department of Justice, thwarting any interference Trump might attempt. Prosecutors in the Southern District will simply say, “We’ll take it from here.”

If Trump were to fire Jeff Sessions or Rod Rosenstein because they refuse to fire Mueller, someone else would have to be appointed. This would lead to a tough hearing in Congress asking for a guarantee of independence. It would all continue from where it is, and that is the beauty of our system and government structure. The Judiciary, Executive and Legislative branches must operate legally and independently.

As Trump cancels his trip to South America this weekend under the premise of wanting to watch the Syrian situation, we know he’s agonizing over the domestic legal problem he faces. Trump thinks that if he was away, he would be out of the loop, such strange paranoia.

Trump is not only an anti-globalist and isolationist, he is also someone who likes to stay home when things are going badly. His cocoon this week will be filled with only those who can boost his self-esteem and give him the advice he wants to hear. Some of those surrounding him could be legal minds suggesting ways to battle those who are out to get him. Today, Trump tweeted, “A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!!!”

And in the end, we will learn the truth. The most important goal of this whole mess is finding a way to bring trust, honor and respect back to the office of the President of the United States. We must all know that no one is above the law. For someone who called himself a “Law and Order” president, there seems to be very little order or respect for the law. How did this happen?

SUITS, SLAMS & SACKS

Trump’s Inability to Manage Calamities

This drama of power abuse and incompetent leadership may keep the TV newscasters and journalists busy, but it’s a terrible story on a colossal level. Donald Trump is one of those people who likes publicity whether it’s good or bad. He makes his own bad P.R. on purpose. What a strange person.

Many people are saying that the President lacks human decency after firing Andrew McCabe, a 20+ year veteran of the FBI, just hours before he was eligible to get his pension. Basically, Trump took $600,000 from this government worker because he didn’t like him. The conspiracy is fundamental. McCabe let a couple of FBI people talk to the press to push a narrative about an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation. Or did he? And if he did, was he instructed to do so? But the real problem is that Donald Trump doesn’t like McCabe and made Jeff Sessions fire him. If the Attorney General had refused to act, Sessions would have been sacked. What a clusterfuck!

While this was going on in the shadow of Trump’s firing of his Secretary of State, the Donald was tweeting away all weekend. In the middle of his tweet storm, it was revealed that Donald Trump has now instructed his lawyers to sue the porn-star Stormy Daniels for $20 million for talking about having sex with the President when he was a not so private citizen. This builds anticipation for the big 60 Minutes interview coming soon to national television. Daniels attorney claims the Anderson Cooper tell-all interview will happen despite the lawsuit. Who the hell is this guy in the White House?

And while the press claimed that Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel office has subpoenaed Trump Organization documents dealing with Russia, Trump himself spent the weekend wailing away with tweets. This begs the question, if the President is innocent why so much dust?

Trump’s “personal” twitter account had more than ten posts over the weekend, mostly on this subject: “The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!”

Trump confuses and tries to shift the reason why Mueller was hired in the first place. Jeff Sessions recused himself because of a point of law. Sessions worked on Trump’s campaign and was rewarded for that early work and endorsement. He was unqualified to perform legal duties because of a possible conflict of interest or lack of impartiality. Sessions applied the law properly. Trump fired James Comey, the Director of the FBI. Sessions was out of the loop, so Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, appointed a Special Counsel to investigate whether the dismissal of Comey was an effort to thwart the investigation into Russian interference, or worse, obstruction of justice. In essence, the reason there is a Special Counsel is all about Trump.

Agent Orange’s inferiority complex is demonstrated by a need to take women to comfort his ego. His narcissistic personality disorder is played out every day. He wants to be a tough guy, when he’s very afraid of being exposed for what he really is. He has the moral compass of a self-serving egotist who makes bad choices because he wants to be right. He despises anyone who confronts him or disagrees with him.

The real calamity is that Trump should be looking over his shoulder and keeping his eyes on Putin, the President of Russia, for the next six years and probably longer. Putin poisons people he doesn’t like, and he will continue to kill people who get in his way. Trump has a fear, according to many, of being poisoned. The sanctions that Congress imposed were finally activated, at least on some basic levels, because Trump was backed into a corner. When all the nations of the west declared that Putin was a bad actor, Trump had no ability to defend him. That would have been used against him with the Russian investigation and would have been, in a sense, collusion-lite!

It’s tough to get rid of a president in America. We usually elect reasonable people who get through four or eight years riding the economic and social-cultural waves with the goal of leading while doing no harm. Donald J. Trump is a daily disaster. I have to say, the best reaction to Trump’s random firings and self-serving management style came from ex-CIA Chief John Brennan: “When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history,” he wrote. “You may scapegoat Andy McCabe but will not destroy America… America will triumph over you.”

If he didn’t drop the mic after that one, I would do it for him. That was the most powerful prose about Trump to date. My only regret is that I didn’t write it.

MOORE OR LESS A CHRISTIAN

Trump’s Evangelical Challenge

In 2017, we are surrounded with a serious lack of morality. This isn’t a new story, though. We know about the things FDR, JFK and Bill Clinton did throughout most of their political lives. And it’s not a secret that Donald Trump has said terrible things about women. More than a dozen women have claimed the current President of the United States made unwanted advances, including inappropriate touching. Some of these women include beauty pageant contestants. Where is the outcry about his abuses?

The way Donald J. Trump has exploited the righteous right, mega-church leaders and the great American evangelicals is not a testament to him being a devout Christian, but rather their susceptibility to false prophets for profit and gain. The church of God has been polluted by politics.

Roy Stewart Moore, formerly a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama and also a judge for the Sixteenth Circuit Court of Alabama and previously a county District Attorney, should be held to a higher standard. In the special primary election to fill the seat left vacant by Senator Jeff Session’s elevation to US Attorney General, Mr. Moore was the victor over Luther Strange.

Luther Strange was backed by President Trump, while Roy Moore, was pushed by Steve Bannon and those on the far right. Many evangelicals back Moore because of his blatant disregard for the separation of church and state. It always amazes me when people of faith believe separation of church and state to be a bad thing. Would a Christian or a Jew want the government to have any power over their churches?

Roy Moore was a bad candidate long before the question of dates with 14-year-old girls. From not taking down the ten commandments from the court house, after being ordered to do so by a higher court, to demanding that clerks not issue marriage licenses for same sex couples, violating the US Supreme Court ruling, Roy Moore has been on the wrong side of the judicial system and the order of law. He inserts his own judgement when he disagrees with the law.

One could compare Judge Moore’s approach to that of Sharia Law that is exercised to force citizens of certain countries to follow the path of the religious text rather than the law of the land. The first amendment clearly starts with, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…”

What does that mean? It could mean that one should not stop another from establishing a religion and it could also mean, that Congress cannot make a law to establish a religion. As our nation grew, we didn’t pick winners between Protestants, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Quakers or the Amish. We permitted people to worship, or not worship, in whatever ways were meaningful to them. Religious freedom is granted by our Constitution.

Here’s the real question the faithful in the state of Alabama should be asking, “Is Roy Moore Christian enough to serve as your Senator?” It seems that the definition of a real Christian is changing. Some men of God in Catholic Churches have committed dreadful atrocities against the very children they should have been protecting and nurturing. The Pope and the Vatican didn’t excommunicate them, they promoted and protected them at times.

We all remember televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, with their multimillion dollar PTL TV show. Recall that the Charlotte Observer found and reported that Jim Bakker had paid $279,000 of hush money to Jessica Hahn, a 21-year old church secretary, after she had confronted Bakker about a rape she said he committed. Things got ugly and few stood by Jim and Tammy Faye after those allegations came to light.

The arcane system of reporting discrimination in the halls Congress that was exposed this week shows just how inadequate those representing us really are. The concept of H.R. departments and corporate procedures for reporting misdeeds on this level, have passed this body right by. The capitol hill accuser has to enroll in counseling. Really? In what era are they living?

When the story broke in the Washington Post about women coming forward to say that  a 30-somethig Moore either dated or inappropriately touched four teenage girls, it wasn’t surprising. It seems that those who speak the loudest about homosexuality, or sin, or how the holy word has been diluted by our modern society are the very ones to cast the first stone, while they never seem to be sinners themselves. Now there’s a fifth woman plus a mall employee saying that Roy Moore was banned from the place for hitting on young girls. And now a sixth accuser surfaces. All the while, Judge Moore denies.

I don’t care what Donald Trump thinks and I don’t care that Roy Moore won his primary. He’s just another bottom feeder, like Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who Donald Trump pardoned. Our pitiful president, if given a chance, will break the law if it suits his means. Joe Arpaio broke the law and so did Roy Moore and there doesn’t seem to be a system to check them. How does a man who blocked a Supreme Court ruling get to run for Congress? Where is that “law and order” that Trump said he would bring back to America? He constantly breaks the law and then lies about it.

Roy Moore is far more dangerous than Hillary Clinton, and Trump still wants to lock her up. The people of Alabama are not stupid. They just need to ask this: WWJD, what would Jesus do? Would he let people like Roy Moore keep exploiting people for his personal gains or would he rid the temples of the money changers? This is not a “spiritual battle” Mr. Moore, this is a sinful cover-up of biblical proportions.

SWEET HOME ALABAMA

Trump’s Next Scapegoat

I’m sure that Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, our current Attorney General, has an honest love for America and the laws of this land. We know that Sessions has a relationship with Steve Bannon and that may have been the motivation for him to come out early as an endorser of Donald J. Trump. The phrase, “Be careful what you wish for” comes to mind with what has transpired between the President and his Attorney General.

Jeff’s past comments came back to haunt him and kept him from advancing several times in his career. Once he teamed with Trump, however, making positive references to the KKK didn’t matter to our great Orange Leader. Just as Anita Hill’s testimony didn’t stop the appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, we seem to be losing the importance of truth. Telling the truth used to mean something.

On radio station WMAL in Washington, DC last night (11-2-2017), Trump aired his frustration with not being involved in the Justice Department, “…you know the saddest thing is that because I’m the President of the United States, I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department. I’m not supposed to be involved with the FBI. I’m not supposed to be doing the kind of things that I would love to be doing. And I’m very frustrated by it.”

This pattern is getting so predictable. Again, he hits back on Twitter: “At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!”

And then, just as Trump and his first lady got onto to Air Force One for his big Asia trip, he made this remark, “I am really not involved with the Justice Department. I’d like to let it run itself. But honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats. A lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me. Imagine if your boss said those things about your department in a business. One would be polishing their resume.

Just as the Senate and House investigative bodies are asking themselves if Sessions, in a sense the top cop in the land, lied under oath, the President, with the least amount of grey matter involved, thinks he getting to the crux of the matter. He’s wanting to control the courts and Justice, like a third-world dictator.

President Trump believes that all this Russia stuff is a “ruse” or a “hoax” as he calls it. We all know that Russia did something during the election, that is a clear fact. Trump’s denial that this even happened is absurd. When some disgruntled Twitter worker cut off his Twitter account for 11 minutes yesterday, the world didn’t end. Maybe he denies that happened.

Part of what a pathological liar does is repeat an untruth over and over until he believes it and with it, those around him, give in to the lie and accept the propaganda as truth.

Trump is a little boy. He never developed a psychological hardened shell to protect himself from critical comments. Maybe his mother spoiled him. As a kid, his frontal cortex never developed properly. It’s clearly devoid of any logic, restraint and reason. And this not good for the United States of America.

Trump would like to end the collusion investigation by firing everyone involved, but he cannot. The reason he is targeting Jeff Sessions isn’t because of his diminutive statue or southern drawl, it’s because he showed up Trump.

Trump is angry right now and is using aggression to help soothe his broken ego. Yes, folks, this is what’s really happening.

When George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, it wasn’t just the lie, it was the plea deal that disclosed some facts – which has been verified but others at the meeting that took place on March 31, 2016. It was a “national security” meeting in Washington, D.C. with many “volunteers” who were working on the campaign. Everyone seems to think this meeting was a nonentity. No one seems to remember what was said. I guess they didn’t take notes. I always thought “national security” was important to the Donald.

In that meeting, it has been reported that Papadopoulos brought up the opportunity to meet with Russians, and conceivably, Vladimir Putin. Trump has been described as open to the meeting, but Jeff Sessions vetoed the idea.

Imagine, someone like Trump, feeling a bit insecure around what he thought were top-notch security people, only to lose the power of the meeting. Sessions made the decision, not Trump. Jeff Sessions represents the DOJ and Justice is in charge of the people who are investigating his administration for any dastardly deeds done against the republic.

In the end, Jeff Sessions will be forced to do more than recuse himself, he will be asked to resign. Trump may think that getting people out of the way will take the pressure off him and his family, but we go back to that old phrase, “Be careful what you wish for, Mr. President.”  Those who come after Jeff Sessions won’t have taken the loyalty test and aren’t going to ruin their reputations, as so many have already, to protect a man who seems to worry more about himself than whether Bump Stocks are banned or Puerto Rico has electricity. And that is truly, sad!

THE AMERICAN ASSHOLE

No Leading, Just Tweeting

 While Russia may be arming the Taliban in Afghanistan, our President sits on the toilet blasting what appears to be his main problem, his Attorney General? While most liberals have few common points with the “law and order” appointed cabinet member, the public flogging of Jefferson Sessions III is disturbing on many levels. This was the headline in this morning’s Guardian newspaper: Donald Trump denounces Jeff Sessions for being ‘weak’ on Hillary Clinton

We are sure that Trump didn’t learn this management style while he attended the University of Pennsylvania Wharton Business School. His wasteful and harsh tweets today (7-25-2017) are a great example of his truly asinine style: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!”

If the President of the United States really thinks he can bully the Attorney General into using the Department of Justice to force a political party to release their server or go after the person who ran against him in the election, then we are no better than some banana republic or third-world country with a power-hungry dictator. We have already seen this movie. It was called McCarthyism. With each day in office Donald J. Trump displays an unconscionable distortion of truth and justice.

And then he excuses an ally of collusion with the Democrats with this tweet: “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign – “quietly working to boost Clinton.” So where is the investigation A.G.” Has Trump totally forgotten what Russia did in Crimea? The President polishes his shallow veneer with the myth that Russia’s cyber-attack was a myth, a hoax, and the investigation is a “witch hunt.” Does he really believe that reporters getting dirt on Paul Manafort and the money he received from a pro-Russian candidate in the Ukraine is a conspiracy by the DNC to hurt him? The facts speak for themselves. Manafort declared the income.

While Trump has tweeted Jeff Sessions onto his list of whipping boys, his spokespeople are saying that Sessions has the President’s confidence. Why are they torturing this person? This is a point of law which Donald Trump doesn’t respect. Our great Orange Leader thinks that Sessions’ primary responsibility is to protect the president and be loyal to Trump himself. Above the law?

Trump embarrassed himself and our great country by giving a speech at the Boy Scout Jamboree filled with brash braggadocio and self-anointing political taunting. He even took this opportunity to deride former President Obama instead of promoting values, honor, country and loyalty which the scout organization touts. The Jamboree even felt the need to issue this note to the attendees: “Chants of certain phrases heard during the campaign (e.g. ‘build the wall’, ‘lock her up’) are considered divisive by many members of our audience, and may cause unnecessary friction.”

Now, we have this human anal opening posing as President of the United States without any respect for the law, without any awareness of the lack of appropriateness of his comments at gatherings of children and minors and worst of all, without any admission that his need for loyalty is a one-way street.

He is not loyal to people he hires and he seems to have no loyalty to the laws of the land. Remember, he did take a loyalty pledge with the American public: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

If we take his tweets at face-value, we can assume he wants to lock Hillary Clinton up and that he wants Jeff Sessions to do what he demands rather than follow the procedure and protocols of the Department of Justice. Donald J. Trump is no lawyer, although he has made many of them rich. He thinks he knows everything about everything, when in reality, he has the emotional make-up of a 14-year old and the legal knowledge of maybe one “Law and Order” episode. Why should we except anything smart from someone who actually reads the National Inquirer?

During his presidential campaign Donald Trump said that John McCain was NOT a hero because he was captured, insulting every POW and their families. Now we get this tweet today: “So great that John McCain is coming back to vote. Brave – American hero! Thank you John.” When you need his vote, he’s a hero. When the man was just told he has cancer, he’s a hero. And that Mr. President, makes you one large, gaping asshole.
