GAS KILLING ANIMAL AND THE CLOWN

Trump’s Lack of Gravitas in Foreign Affairs

In the last 500 days, I have written over 150,000 words about Donald Trump, his reactionary behavior and his small mindedness. I never said I would be objective and have openly admitted that I never respected him, and I hated his TV show.

I lived in New York for 16 years and had a front row seat for the Donald Trump show, before he was a political candidate or president. Most of the time I cast aside his actions and opinions as the raves of a rabies infested mind. He rarely made sense, and it was obvious that each of his statements either made himself look better or discredited someone else. I never sensed a drip of reason from this headline-making rich guy. He was a simplistic fool, born with a silver spoon in his mouth. The metal must have leaked into his frontal lobes.

Anyone in the world can read any tweet that is posted to @realDonaldTrump. Now that the Donald has been sworn in as the President of the United States, we have more than just a reality TV series cliffhanger to consider. This man can now curtail justice in our courts, run up our country’s debt or, worse, get us into another war.

There should be someone filtering his emotional, unreasonable and unresearched viewpoints. But that is a stupid pipedream that will never happen. He will tweet us into a trade war or a real war, and no one will stand up to him. Trump is addicted to social media with the same reckless abandon of a 14-year girl or the local high school bully.

Trumps Tweets of April 11, 2018, “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it! Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War. There is no reason for this. Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race? Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation, headed up by the all Democrat loyalists, or people that worked for Obama. Mueller is most conflicted of all (except Rosenstein who signed FISA & Comey letter). No Collusion, so they go crazy!”

Some people use the phrase, “Bull in a china shop.” I prefer to employ a visual of the direction a full balloon takes when let loose. Trump is all over the place, and when he receives any criticism he tries to fix the story, change the narrative or cast disparagement on people or institutions.

His misplaced ridicule may make him feel better, but it clouds the discussion and comprehension of what is really happening. This was the tweet he sent today (4-12-2018), “Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all! In any event, the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS. Where is our “Thank you America?”

This is exactly the reason he should NOT be allowed to tweet. Sorry, but all this yak-yak, throw-up-in-my-mouth justification that the President needs to tweet so he can communicate his thoughts directly to his “base” without the “censorship” of the mainstream media is a false narrative. And, really, why would the leader of the free world need a “thank you?” Insecurity reigns supreme.

Our Great Orange Leader needs the instant gratification of his inner thoughts blasting out on a social media platform. He seems to be trying out policies or thoughts on the internet, testing them in a sense. Sometimes his staff, cabinet and experts will tell him that there may be possible misinterpretation of what he has said, then he tries to repair the damage. He demands his underlings to lie daily, then throws them away when he is bored. Trump may think he is declaring opinions, but he doesn’t realize that what he types on Twitter, is policy. Those are legal documents.

Syria using chemical weapons is not a good thing. The bashing of Obama for creating what appeared to be a red line in the sand has pushed Trump to be less thoughtful and more aggressive than necessary. The Donald has painted his own red line because of this. He over-reacts to critics and ignores any semblance of diplomacy.

The posturing and flamboyant language of threating Russia and blaming the investigation on Russian interference as the catalyst for a bad relationship with Putin is, once again, the balloon uncontrollably flying around the room. Congress is limp and ineffective, failing their Constitutional responsibility to pull this president away from his warlike actions.

Unfortunately, the 9-11 attacks created a more liberal viewpoint of the president’s powers of waging war and “defending” our country. It’s time to revisit this and define the exact powers of war a president holds, and to determine the difference between defending our country and taking pre-emptive actions on foreign soil.

A true hawk on this Syrian crisis would call for regime change, but who wants to deal with Russia? It’s the one country we cannot trust Trump to handle properly.

Trump’s mouth has gotten himself into trouble and we are on the edge of war because this jerk of a president tweets before he thinks. On the campaign trail, he warned that if America voted for Hillary Clinton she would draw the country into war. Well, look who’s getting us into war now.

Trump is a liar and an unfocused human being. His picadilloes of vanity, narcissism and needy stage performances can be ignored, but his addiction to power, sex, love for his “base” above the rest of the country and a false belief that he knows better than anyone else is hurting America. He is known to have bribed his way out of problems. His morality can be and should be questioned by the evangelicals and conservatives in this country.

Trump needs to get the fuck out the White House before we are thrown into another unending war. Mike Pence is not a suitable replacement but, for now, President Pence will at least listen to the people and God more than the almighty dollar. Trump is a loser, a bum, and it’s time for us to get rid of him.

PAIN & BIG PRICE TO PAY

Trump’s Premature Pull-out

We knew it was going to happen. People warned us that it was going to happen. But now we see the result of someone who doesn’t calculate his comments or comprehend the weight of his words. Let us review.

Just last week, seemly out of the blue, President Donald Trump said, “I want to get out. I want to bring our troops back home.” And he added the snarky comment, “We’ll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon. Let the other people take care of it now.”

It reminds me of a wild New Year’s Eve party I had one night at my home where there were so people they could hardly move. A woman dropped her plate of food on the carpeting and started to walk away from her mess. I suggested she clean up the dropped plate, she turned to me and said, “They have people to take care of that.”

For most of Trump’s life, someone else has always taken care of things. When he wanted to keep someone from talking about him, he would have someone else write and execute a Nondisclosure Agreement. When he was tired of the woman he married, he would call in some lawyers to clean up the mess.

But now, Trump is the President of the United States and the words he uses, whether out loud or online, have major consequences. There isn’t a fixer to call. Clearly, he was suggesting an almost “mission accomplished” moment when he said, “We are knocking the hell out of ISIS and that once that’s done we’ll be coming out.” The assumption that ISIS is anywhere close to giving up shows this man’s inability to follow the intelligence and understand fundamental facts from the front line.

One of the things that makes Trump so effective with his base is his way of talking in simple terms and use of generalizations. He makes bold, naïve statements, and the bobblehead dolls of the heartland nod and believe in their Great Orange Leader. He discounts basic facts, like we have fewer troops in Syria than Mr. Trump is sending to the Mexican-U.S. border: 2,000 vs. 4,000. Does that mean ISIS is less dangerous than women and children in the “caravan” coming from Honduras? These facts don’t matter in Trumpworld.

Something happened right after Trump made his careless statement about Syria. The ruthless dictator, Bashar al-Assad, once again dropped chemical bombs on his own people. John McCain was quick to suggest that Assad did that because of Trump’s premature pullout statement. Wow, the senior Senator from Arizona is suggesting culpability on Trump’s part.

The last time Assad used chemical weapons, Trump finished his second large piece of chocolate cake and launched an airstrike on an airbase in Syria.

This time, Trump was quick to Tweet this reaction: “Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price to pay. Open area immediately for medical help and verification. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. SICK!”

In just days, we’ve gone from pulling out soon, rubbing our hands and saying basically our work is done here, to the realization that ISIS is only part of the problem. It’s a complicated civil war with three or four factions, interference coming from Russian and Iran and the desire to push the Hezbollah party into power. Both Russia and Iran will not take any aggression sitting down.

Not only are the Russians warning Trump not to retaliate in Syria, they are reacting to an early Monday morning bombing of a major air base in central Syria. Russia’s Defense Ministry claimed that two Israeli F-15 jets launched eight guided rockets from Lebanese airspace into Syria. Will Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu upstage Trump and take the frontline for him in this war?

If Trump would have just slowed down and gathered advice from his experts first, he would have avoided this kind of embarrassing international blunder. There is clearly no diplomatic filter on the @realDonaldTrump twitter account. We knew it was going to happen; people warned that it was going to happen, but this vain and uncontrollable man doesn’t care what smart people think. He cannot separate the smart from the loud.

The Donald told us that we might feel a little pain with his Trade War that he is conducting against China, Canada and Mexico, but he’s now asking us to pay more for his imaginary long-term gain. It’s a giant trickledown con job. The price increases will wipe out any gains people achieved with the tax cut.

Trump cares more about putting down Obama’s Syria “red line” comment than acknowledging that, no matter what he does, someone will have to pay a price in Syria. If our President gets involved and starts to drop bombs, he will piss off his boyfriend Putin. If he does nothing, he will look weak and all the Trump haters will accuse him of hypocrisy. There are no right choices here. We need, and don’t have, a president who puts America First, not his ego and shallow knowledge of the political landscape in the Middle East.

Gee, where is Trump’s big Middle East peacekeeper Jared Kushner? I guess a person who owns properties on the West Bank in Israel would not be that objective in this discussion. I’m not sure why Jared Kushner is even a part of this story.

The cunning military intellectual, General McMaster, is gone. Now Trump gets to test his brand-new security adviser, John Bolton, on his first day at work. To bomb or not to bomb? Action or inaction? As Trump says when he is befuddled and flustered, “We will see.”

Whatever the Russian spy network has on Donald Trump, or whatever embarrassing bank entanglements he is keeping from the American public, they probably don’t mean anything now. Trump is trying to figure out whether he wants to go up against Russia on the world stage. Putin could release what he knows about Trump, but that is too obvious for a former spy.

With Syria in Bashar al-Assad’s grip, nothing is going to change. Like his father, he will bomb and poison his people until they bow to his authority. Trump best be wearing his big-boy pants this week. He might also want to have a few spare trousers on call. When he finally hears the truth about Syria from Bolton, he will be losing more than his credibility.

WE WILL TAKE CARE OF IT

The Trump Behind the Curtain Has Spoken

Maybe it would be easy to sum up my case against Donald Trump by simply saying that he’s stark raving mad. His recalcitrant actions and disruptive attitudes, sometime based on fanciful conspiracies and fallacies, are surely a disqualifying profile for a democratic leader. For this writer, I am ashamed that my countrymen and women, no matter where they live, decided to elect this putrefied mushroom brain.

Yesterday (11-28-2017), the equally braindead leader of North Korea launched another one of his “toy missiles” into the sky and now claims his death rockets can reach anywhere in the United States. During a press briefing, the President said, “We will take care of it.” After the Donald boasted about his “highly-successful” trip to Asia, where he allegedly got all the leaders on the same page concerning Kim Jong Un, we see nothing has changed, including the ineffectiveness of Trump’s diplomatic prowess.

Our great Orange Leader thinks he can solve any problem, but when he tries to fix things he only creates more problems. I’m not sure why the talking heads on TV want to say Trump’s antics are based on some calculation. In truth, he’s on a reality TV show just doing whatever pops into his mind at the moment. There is no executive producer behind the curtain.

At 2 o’clock in the morning today, Trump retweeted postings of Great Britain’s Jayda Fransen, a hyper religious anti-Muslim propagandist who posts hateful videos of her campaign against Islamists. So, now the President of the United States, by his use of Twitter, had endorsed a racist, xenophobic HATE SITE. Twitter lets Ms. Fransen spread hate. Twitter also allows our President to threaten, what we can only assume, was nuclear violence against a whole country. Twitter’s Terms of Use says it allows some forms of graphic violence. However, Twitter, wiping out a whole country with “fire and fury” is not graphic enough for you? Where is the line? When do you read your own User Agreements?

More importantly, when did America decide that the person in the most powerful seat in the land gets a pass on inappropriate sexual touching, while men in media, entertainment and business get thrown out the door? Why haven’t Trump’s accusers filed written complaints to the Senate for investigation?

The sad reality is that actions taken by business leaders have to do with lawsuits and their cost. Some companies have money piled away for this kind of thing. In their minds, a “possible payout” for wrongful termination is set at $250,000 max. The victims, or plaintiffs in these cases, usually settle for much less, unless they work for Fox News or Houses of Congress. The accompanying non-disclosure agreements in these settlements are standard procedure and should be challenged in the court. A non-disclosure agreement can lead to others being harmed. Why do we, as a nation, tolerate them?

The most important aspect of all these cases is that someone has to go on record. A written complaint must be created. Once that happens, then some action can take place. In Trump’s world, when he was accused of inappropriate behavior, he said he didn’t do it. In his mind, case closed. Or is it?

Roy Moore has been accused by Leigh Corfman, Wendy Miller, Debbie Wesson Gibson, Gloria Thacker Deason, Beverly Young Nelson, Tina Johnson, Becky Gray and Gena Richardson of certain levels of inappropriate or unwanted sexual advances. Roy Moore says they are all lying. Donald Trump tells us we have to listen to Roy Moore. Why? Isn’t the President, by his actions and endorsement of Moore for the Senate, really saying that all of those women are lying? When did the President get to decide who is telling the truth?

Isn’t that what we have said from the beginning in these rants and psychological vomiting sessions? We have been very clear that Donald John Trump is a liar. He lies and incompetently leads from inside his hardened shell of ego-gratification. He’s a dog turd on the sidewalk. We can only wish for a long, hot, harsh summer sun or wind driven torrents of rain to nullify the damage he has created. America will survive this limited man, but those Congress people who kowtow and lick his boots now will be remembered for their spinelessness as they slither back into their lifetime Federal pensions.

Donald Trump has spoken, “We will take care of it.” And now we wait for his next tweet, or his next stupid theory, which can be easily fact checked before being splashed on that sidewalk next to his bodily waste. Can’t strong journalism show the citizenry who is telling the truth?

The threat from North Korea or Tax Reform should have been front and center today. Instead, these are the words coming from the “leader of the free world, “So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate! Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.” But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!” AND WHY SHOULD THIS BE IMPORTANT TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES?

This guy isn’t our president, he’s a gossip columnist for the Daily News. He missed his calling, or did we miss something in the democratic process of electing a president? As Mr. Trump gets older, his behavior will only get worse. Are we really willing to take this crap? Let it rain, God, please make it rain.

MORE BOOTS ON THE GROUND

Trump Takes Back Campaign Promise

After President Trump’s speech about Afghanistan (8-21-2017), Breitbart’s Steve Bannon called it a flip-flop, setting up a new war with Fake News. It is true that one of Trump’s campaign promises was to get out of Afghanistan, the never-ending war.

With his words last night, President Donald J. Trump extended the war until, well, we don’t know. It’s something like a television network announcing they have renewed a show with no timeline and no end in sight. Thanks to our great Orange Leader, we still have the “Obama strategy”, as it was described by one of the Breitbart editors, but there are “no timelines, facts or figures.” We are going to continue the war, but now with Trump’s approval and ownership. Oh, how things change when you are President and sitting in the Oval Office, sir.

Trump said his first instinct was to pull out. There is a joke there, but I’ll let it be and continue this diatribe. After feedback from “his Generals,” Trump has decided to let them run the war and help him make critical decisions. Boy, those Nazis really turned Trump around. Or was it that he no longer had to stare at that extremely “white” board in Bannon’s office with all the campaign promises. Like Moses’ tablets, those were laws not to be broken. Now that the Neo-Moses and Alt-Right loon Bannon is gone, we can erase the board and move forward.

We entered Afghanistan for all the right reasons. They were harboring radicals and extremists who carried out attacks on US soil in 2001. See, in a country that has this hardened religious foundation in their history, it’s hard to know where the bad guys stand on the circle of political alignments. For sure, though, they have about four or five self-proclaimed jihadist’s groups and, of course, the Taliban, their version of the minute men on horses.

We are dealing with the tribal nature of a very large country that has more diversity than most Americans can understand. Did we also mention that Afghanistan grows poppies. The opium poppy is used to make morphineheroin, and a number of other painkillers. We have to stay in Afghanistan not only for the potential of more radical groups using the country as a training base, but something Trump didn’t talk about last night was is fact that our opioid crisis starts in that country, not Mexico.

You can’t blame Teleprompter Trump for his words last night, they were expertly crafted to have a push back on hate, a little flag-waving and USA USA USA in there. To prevent being beat up by the lefty media, all the important stats were redacted. But it’s okay to say there isn’t a timeline, because history will likely show that we will never leave Afghanistan. Ask the Russians whether winning was worth it. They were there for ten years, didn’t win and all their aggression gave the world was Bin Laden.

I was very proud of our military at Fort Myer for not cheering and being quiet during the President’s speech. I am sure they were given orders to clap only when the speech was finished. That kind of seriousness is needed when the President is going to send some 4,000 fresh troops into unsafe territory. He might not say what he is doing, but the figures will be leaked by the Pentagon.

What was lacking in Trump’s speech was a clearly defined goal. He said he wants to bring peace to the region, but he didn’t say when. He said he doesn’t want any nation building, but will ask Pakistan to help with the terrorists on the border while using a veiled threat of taking away their US aid. He asked India to assist, which means that he wants them to help fund this war. I am sure that Prime Minister Modi would like to help get rid of bad people in Pakistan, but he has a big bomb to do that, if he wants.

Might I remind the reader that Pakistan also has nuclear capabilities and they certainly will need our 1.5 billion dollars in aid to lube their fighting machines. Without recognizing the Taliban and sitting down and talking with them no real peace can be achieved. The Taliban, which some estimate is 30,000 strong, will always be taking land and attempting to put those they control under Sharia Law.

Remember, it is the Taliban’s fatwa that condemns to death anyone who draws a picture of Muhammed. This is what Trump inherited and, he is correct, it’s a mess. But he needs to stop complaining about the past and focus on tomorrow. It is now his war and his army and his political legacy that is on the line.

Trump has failed domestically. He cannot afford any further mistakes. We need Teleprompter Trump now, not Impromptu Trump, who ruffles too many feathers. And it would best if Twitter Trump would take a long golfing vacation. Things are serious now Donald, get your head on straight, right now.
