Miscalculations & Misleading Information
In his three years as president, Donald Trump has lied so much that when things get wretchedly dangerous, he cannot be trusted to lead the nation. One might argue that much of what has happened within the last few months is his fault, but it’s just part of Donald’s petty personal war against so many enemies, so many critics and so many decisions made in the past. Those who decide to stay on “his side” will eventually realize that common sense and long-term strategy have been thrown out of the window.
Donald Trump thinks he is a master salesman. Like a cunningly corrupt deal maker, he says things to close a contract without any comprehension that his pitch was outrageously wrong or not attainable. Like the salesman who takes the money and runs, Trump has forgotten all his promises. He lies his way out of his stance when he gets push back from Fox News. The sad truth is the knuckleheads at Fox News can move our foreign policy with their crafty talk and opinions. They own a strange kind of “thought-control” over the most powerful person in the world.
Trump never believed in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) with Iran, not because he studied it or understood it, but because it was the work of the Obama Administration along with five other nations and the European Union. The thrust of this treaty was nuclear non-proliferation. I guess the Donald didn’t think that aspect of the deal was worth it.
As a candidate, Trump rallied his mobs with a piece of misinformation that he constantly repeated. He claimed that part of JCPA involved the US paying Iran $150 billion. NOT TRUE. During years of sanctions against that country and its leaders, we took their bank accounts and held their money. Under the JCPA we returned those funds. Most experts believe it was more like $60 billion.
Trump thought that Iran’s leaders would come to the table to negotiate a better deal after the US pulled out of the nuclear treaty. Our president’s thick-headed approach to people is always wrong. If Donald Trump hadn’t been given more than a million dollars before he was ten years old, he would never have been able to start a business. He makes a lot of mistakes with his wealth, leading to bankruptcy and heavy borrowing to stay afloat. Trump’s biggest weaknesses are his inability to judge people and his lack of understanding about other cultures and religions. Leaving the JCPA gave Iran the green light to make more nukes, not less. Trump truly believed his oxymoronic logic would prevail.
Donald Trump thought it would be okay to kill Iran’s top military leader when he arrived at the Baghdad airport from Tehran. To me, it’s the tail wagging the dog. For those who don’t get the reference, it describes a situation in which an important event, powerful person or organization is controlled by someone or something much less important or powerful. Let’s apply this to current events. IMPEACHMENT (something hugely big to Trump) was on his mind when he ordered the hit because an ASSASSINATION (something less important in Trump’s head) would be talked about more than impeachment.
Trump also believes in the power of being at war during a reelection campaign. It has been said that America never changes presidents during a war, but could the war itself become the reason to remove him from office? The big lie here is that taking out General Qasem Soleimani has made the world safer. Both Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are LYING when they try to put the lipstick on that ugly pig.
With the lack of strategy and clear communication from our president, there are many rumors already flying around. The Sunday Times out of London claimed that Suleimani was not taken out by the US military but was the victim of Israeli special forces. They seem to be feeding a theory that this whole matter stemmed from a disagreement with people in Syria, and that Trump’s taking responsibility for the strike is a favor to his buddy Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel who is trying to get reelected. Okay, there are some problems with this one, because it would indicate that Trump is risking all credibility with our armed forces for a political favor. What kind of leader would ask another leader to do that kind of “favor?” THIS JUST IN: this rumor was significant enough for Netanyahu to make a statement today that Israel had nothing to do with the hit on the Iranian leader.
Donald Trump’s paranoia and inability to process information with any kind of logical strategy is hurting the United States, and not just the stock market. War does many things to a country and most of them are bad, unless you’re in the weapons and armaments business.
Donald Trump isn’t fit to decide when to go to war, how to fight a war and where the red lines lie. When he has repeated his threat to go after “cultural sites” in the proud Persian area of the world, where many believe civilization began, he is saying he cares not about international laws of war. Should he hit cultural sites, he would be committing a war crime and, if found guilty, his punishment could be a death sentence. But then, President Trump believes he is above the law.
Hope that Trump will enjoy being neighbors with Edward Snowden, but then, that is not how this story will end. Stay tuned. We are about to see America go to war so that Trump can stay in Washington. STOP HIM NOW AMERICA!
New Book About America
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.
