An Open Letter To Chief Justice Roberts

Our Founding Fathers

If you agree, write a letter:

Supreme Court, United States
1 First Street, NE
Washington, DC 20543

Telephone: 202-479-3000

Chief Justice Roberts

Dear Chief Justice:

I have to believe you are aware of what has happened in Tennessee. The sad part of that tragedy is it’s the result of those in an ivory tower who demand respect by wearing black robes, making them appear as if they are pious preachers, but alas, they are only humans who make grave mistakes in logic and judgement. Just today, I read that Justice Thomas admitted to taking $400,000 in “gifts” that he didn’t declare. How can the America public possibly believe that one of the country’s most important institutions is not for sale?

Clarence Thomas

We’re told that laws are based on facts and traditions to attain and maintain justice for all, but now we have racism out of the closet and in the streets and legislatures. You cannot rewrite every state law involving gerrymandering and voting schemes to give one party more power and advantage. And your observation that we’ve come along far enough to not need voter protections for people of color in this country is naïve and incorrect. Between declaring a corporation is a person and your decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that ended women’s rights to decide their own medical care, your legacy is in tatters.

You and the other justices have little respect for what came before, and it’s clear that Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett lied during their confirmation hearings about Roe vs. Wade. That should disturb you greatly. Your court’s removal of a law that was on the books for more than fifty years was a dismal miscalculation that has sullied the institution FOREVER.

Our Supreme Court has divided us more than we were before these decisions. Taking away rights from minorities, women and the disadvantaged is not what your legislative body is supposed to do. You might want to spend some time with African Americans who cannot find a job.

I hope you read this, but if not, it’s simply proof of how your isolation has warped your judgement to the detriment of this great land. Chief Justice Roberts, corporations are not people, the Second Amendment doesn’t give anyone the right to kill school children, and it’s well past time the Supreme Court starts seeing the world through the eyes of common men and women.

How about the courtesy of a response to this taxpayer?

SEE WHAT WE COULD BECOME …

Tattoo Detective: Our Last Hope for the Future

Imagine being able to time travel into the unknown. TATTOO DETECTIVE: Our Last Hope for the Future is a science fiction novel examining the world after all the guardrails of normal society have been dissolved.

The story follows two American tattoo detectives who are sent on a mission that changes them and their world. This dystopic look at the United States and the flaw in humankind is not a Pollyanna prognostication, it’s fundamentally close to our current reality and could be predictive of where we are headed. The opening chapter says it best, “…we could have done something, but we fell madly in love with technology, weapons and wealth.”  For purchase or dowload, go here.

OPEN LETTER TO THE WORLD

Short Memories, Botched Bravery

Words go only so far when dealing with a short man who carries a Napoleon complex and a need for cruelty. The President of Russia is a thug and a terrorist. He has committed war crimes and it’s not a push to say that he, and he alone, has wreaked genocide in Ukraine. His psychological transmission of machismo, with videos of hockey playing and riding a horse with his shirt off, proves what we’ve known all along. His control over others is desperately needed to stoke a sense of stature in his own mind. He resents any person, country or ideology saying he’s nothing but a mean, vindictive human with the same flaws as Hitler.

We marched to the drum of justice and democracy after World War II and we spoke out loud the words “Never again,” but now it’s happening again and we stand silent, just like we did at the close of the 1930s. We stood inactive when the genocide happened in Darfur. Hundred of thousands of people were murdered and all we could do was make movies about the tragedy. In Syria, ten years of war left at least 350,000 dead, and the so-called leader there had no problem bombing and gassing his own people to put down a revolution. Bashar al-Assad is an immoral dictator who, like Putin, doesn’t care about human rights or genocide when advancing his political agenda.

Every free country of the world watching the constant bombardment of Ukraine on TV stands by the men, women and children murdered by Putin. Why can’t the world unite against this horrible abuse of power? Assuming Putin is bluffing about the use of his nuclear power, what are we waiting for? Would it make a difference if Putin was marching into Poland, just like Hitler did? When do we just say “NO” to this unhinged lunatic?

The Russian people must share some blame. After all, they voted for this maniac, maybe out of fear or maybe the election was fixed, but they are allowing Putin to wage this war. Then again, they are being fed a pile of bullshit propaganda and might not know the truth, or maybe masterful Mr. Putin has brainwashed them into believing this stain on their history is good for Russia. Nationalism, as we have seen here, produces so much misinformation and lies that push Pinocchio’s proboscis to a length that could impress a wooden prostitute.

The tragedy in Ukraine will continue until someone ends Vladmir Putin and his illusion of power and right. He’s not going to support any reasoning or compromise, because this is his last chance of getting it up on the world’s stage. While he waves his fake communism and exists as a full-fledged Russian fascist, the entire world is being lazy. Maybe it’s time we declare war against the bastard. I mean war against the person, not the country. Could that be worth a try?

Czar Nicholas II

Putin thinks he’s a Czar and has changed the Constitution of the Russian Federation so he can remain in power forever. Who let this happen? I’ll tell you who; fearful, limp representatives who know deep down inside that were they to rebuke Putin they would be shot, poisoned or sent to a labor camp to die. The United Nations should vote Russia out. It’s shameless they have the power to veto any measure that body brings to the world. You cannot give the fox the combination to the lock on the hen house. If there are more sanctions to impose on Putin, what the fuck are we waiting on?

Putin’s army has the wherewithal to destroy a culture, a country and its people. Why are we letting him do this? We were afraid of Hitler and allowed him to take over the world before raising a finger. We waited too long with Hitler, and we are waiting too long with Putin. Just the other day I heard this phrase on TV, “The US will be sending in advisors to help train the Ukraine army.” REALLY?

Let me remind you, “In September 1950, US President Harry Truman sent the Military Assistance Advisory Group (MAAG) to Vietnam to assist the French in the First Indochina War.” Our involvement always starts with sending advisors, then a few special operations people are ordered in to, you know, help the CIA. Next, we’ll send a few thousand; it’s already been written.

Hey WORLD, wake up and take note. When a country’s leader gives an order to bomb a maternity hospital, he’s not worthy of his position. A leader who shells their own people is immoral and certainly God should intervene, but he hasn’t. Why?

I suggest that if everyone in the world prayed to God to end this war and eliminate Vladimir Putin, not a damn thing would change. When faith or an allegiance to a supreme being doesn’t make the world a better place, we must act. Who gave Putin the power to kill thousands of people?

While we all sit watching TV and feeling badly, the madman continues killing. It’s time to act. We must get involved. If not, then no one is safe in the world. This is definitely worse than global warming.

WHAT IF ADOLF HITLER WERE REBORN?

History Repeats Itself, History Repeats Itself

So, we seem to have a madman trying to convince millions the only way their country will regain its place in the world is by allowing him to occupy it and kill those citizens he believes are the problem. We are seeing a demonic despot imposing brutality and cruelty on a country and its people, just because he wants to, just because he can. Will there be more countries to come?

Vladimir Putin is behaving exactly like Adolph Hitler. The activities of each tyrant are grievance based. Hitler was extremely embarrassed by his government’s loss in World War I. Remember, he was a soldier. Putin was a combatant stationed in East Berlin and he witnessed the fall of the wall dividing the city, which he was prepared to defend to his death. As has been written, Putin’s team was waiting for orders, but “Moscow was silent.” Putin considered this a defeat, and his whole career has been all about elevating himself to a position of power to bring back the U.S.S.R., minus the mistakes he believes were made by his predecessors.

Hitler was a Nazi and his takeover of much of Europe was driven by a need to pay back the terrible debt that came out of the Versailles Treaty. Indeed, the world handed Germany what they thought was a deterrent, but it actually planted a giant seed of resentment. Hitler merely watered and fertilized that seed with lies, bullshit and propaganda. The idea that Russians had to fight and die to stop Hitler is being used today by Putin.

Putin insists on calling the government leaders in Ukraine neo-Nazis, when that couldn’t be further from the truth. The President of Ukraine is a Russian-Jew whose family moved to Ukraine to be free. Putin’s idea that Ukraine is a threat to Russia is a joke the former comedian Volodymyr Zelenskyy would have gladly told. And this writer believes that deep down in Putin’s souless body, he too, hates Jews.

Putin is the new Hitler and it’s about time the world sees what is truly happening. I quipped that Putin would have as much credibility trying to take Alaska from the United States as he does “liberating” Ukraine. Alaska was originally Russian land, but Ukraine existed long before Moscow and the Soviet Union. The world must defend this democracy.

Putin has threatened the use of atomic weapons and we should take him seriously. Russia certainly has weapons of mass destruction, and we don’t want Putin to take Hawaii off the face of the earth just to prove a point. Something must be done, now.

We joked about how many lies Donald Trump told for four years, but now many liberals and some Republicans are repulsed by the ex-president’s comments on this new crisis. Trump and his minions are playing out an unamerican and treacherous scheme by siding with Putin. The man is and always has been a miscreant with an illicit KGB mentality, which includes the presumption of a license to kill.

Support Ukraine, Stop Putin

One point five million people are now being displaced and moved to safer countries, but such safety may be only temporary. Putin has stated that anyone helping Ukraine is his enemy and declared that sanctions on his country are acts of war against Russia. He is talking just like Hitler did in 1939, and if you understand his black and white plan and do nothing, you will have red blood on your hands.

I’ve watched movies and read books about what would have happened if the plans to assassinate Adolf Hitler were successful. They are all could-have, would-have, should-have stories that don’t give much comfort to the more than six million Jews who were murdered by that maniac. Sadly, no one had the proper plan or blunt bravery of an Islamic zealot with a pipe bomb strapped to his chest. The world would have been much different had someone succeeded in cutting off the head of that snake.

Probably within the next month, the Russian Army, under the sole leadership of Vladimir Putin, will take Ukraine and occupy that fine place. For now, we should freeze every possible Russian financial and business transaction, and I really don’t care if it hurts the Russian people. They think they elected him, so why not make them revolt against this godless, blood-thirsty animal?

A few journalists, world leaders and poets warned us about Adolph Hitler, but hardly anyone listened. Some in Great Britain’s Royal Family wanted to sign a treaty with Germany to stop the war. In the 1930s, American Charles Lindbergh was more than positive about Hitler, and he toured the country preaching we should stay out of events in Europe.

I laugh when the talking heads on Fox News claim Joe Biden is the reason all this is happening. They are the Lindbergh’s of our age, and their failure to see a new world terrorist before their very eyes is a wicked waste of mass media. They don’t need to be censored, they need to be asked, “Whose side are you on?”

Millions of people are going to be killed. I hate to say it, but we must enter this war and defeat Putin. No one wants to say it, no one wants to hear it, but we are thirty days from World War III. Mark your calendar.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT PUTIN?

Every American must take a side

I didn’t vote for Ronald Reagan, but I was with him and backed his efforts to get the hostages out of Iran. It was the American thing to do. I hated Richard Nixon, but I agreed with his departure from Vietnam regardless of how ugly it was. When President Biden ordered the end of our Afghanistan occupation, I knew it was the right thing to do in the long run, even with an understanding the evil Taliban would take over.

Now we have Putin, a wannabe Hitler, with all the power of Dr. Evil and a full nuclear arsenal, you know, true “weapons of mass destruction.” Vladimir has decided to take Ukraine because of a wild notion that Ukraine has always been part of Russia. Ukraine was a place, a county and a people long before there was a Moscow, but Putin doesn’t care. This has less to do with history and more to do with what Putin wants written about him in the future.

Putin wants a war. He wants to prove that he’s the worst mo’fo’ in the world. Napoleon would be proud of this little man’s desire to appear big on the world stage, but with his bad knees and pigeon-toed walk he’s just another man who will die one day. Before he departs, however, he wants to make his country bigger by taking land and controlling people. He’s bored and falling into his own dogma of power and deceit. Just last week Putin said he would not invade Ukraine. Well, guess what? He lied.

We are seeing Hitler Version 2.0, and if the world doesn’t wake up this is going to be bad for human beings, bad for the world economy and particularly bad for the United States of America. So, when Donald Trump, a soiled man with a lack of moral judgement, talks about the brilliance of Vladimir Putin with his launch of World War III, Dwight Eisenhower, Harry Truman and Franklin Delano Roosevelt were turning in their graves, not wanting to watch a former President disgrace himself in front of the world.

But this isn’t going to help Trump, because now every Congressional Republican will have to choose to be either pro-American or anti-American. Any American siding with Putin is unpatriotic. It’s not about the “world order,” as these dictators state in their speeches, it’s about strong nations beating up smaller nations and somehow being convinced they cannot be held accountable. Hell, maybe Putin will next take Alaska back. I’m not kidding, Putin’s declaration that Ukraine was not really a country and was “historically” part of Russia could also be said about Alaska, with its rich minerals and fossils fuels they should be careful.

Alaska was Russian property until 1867 when the US purchased the land. So, honestly, what’s to stop Putin’s Navy from sailing across the Bering Strait to take our turf? At the risk of sounding like the US generals who sent our army into Vietnam to stop the spread of communism, I believe if Putin is not stopped, he will advance on every nation he can easily overtake to retool the world back to the way it existed when the USSR was a true power. We must stop him now.

First, we should throw Russia out of the United Nations. They do not deserve a vote because they don’t follow the rules and don’t use their vote to promote world peace and order, but simply to block Western ideas and ideals. Why should they be allowed to ignore the will of the body, break the rules and do whatever they want? If the United Nations doesn’t stop this unprovoked and unwarranted attack on another country, what comes next?

www.cnn.com

Next, NATO should immediately call a vote and accept Ukraine into the alliance with the full force of Article 51 which states, “The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defense.” Should Ukraine join NATO, all the nations in that organization must declare unity against Russia and its attempted overthrow of a sovereign nation.

And next, domestically, every sponsor of Fox News should pull their advertising until the owners of that channel declare their position on the subject of Russia invading Ukraine. Without their open acceptance of American values, why are they allowed to promote Russian aggression to millions of the citizens of this country? They take money from sponsors who are being hurt by this attack on a democracy. LOOK AT THE STOCK MARKET! Remember, when things get back, the first thing taken of the budget is advertising.

Finally, as much as Joe Biden doesn’t want to be the guy to do it, he must send troops into Ukraine, either through our NATO agreements, UN responsiveness or desire to protect the weapons and aid already in place there. The human life that will be lost if the world stands by and watches would be immoral.

Putin is almost seventy years old, and the Viagra of war must be turning him on. He wants to be seen as a tall, respected tyrant, but he’s just another Stalin, just another Hitler and just another Saddam Hussein with a bigger army. I hope we can unite against this malevolent man. I fear if we don’t, Russia and China will take over the world while we sit and wonder about Trump’s place in the next election. China will take over Taiwan causing another disruption of freedom and eradicate a reasonable democracy. Look what they did in Hong Kong.

As far as Donald Trump is concerned, he can go fuck himself and work on his little social media catastrophe. To my way of thinking, you are either pro-America and anti-Putin or you are a lousy scum sucking loser. Stronger viewpoints to come later.

REAL ENEMIES IN THE WORLD

Trump’s Troubling Achilles Heel

Donald Trump didn’t fight in the Vietnam war because he claimed to have bone spurs in his feet. Today, as we witness the decay of democracy before our very eyes, we discover Trump’s true weakness, a troubling Achilles Heel. He doesn’t know the difference between an ally and an enemy. This could possibly hurt American interests in many ways, and something must be done.

It has been discussed ad nauseam that there may be an unusual and disturbing relationship between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has said, “All roads lead to Putin” with our President.

The Moscow Project, an initiative of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, issued an update on June 3, 2019 that documented 272 contacts, including at least 38 meetings, between Trump’s team and Russia-linked operatives. None of these contacts were ever reported to the proper authorities. When the Inspector General’s report comes out on Monday, December 9th, 2019, we will learn more about the start of the “Russian thing,” as Trump calls it. Still, many of Trump’s comments and moves indicate a lack of transparency in his dealings with Putin. Why?

Trump’s failure to admit that Russia interfered with the 2016 election fuels the idea that Russia must have something on him. Trump’s repetition of Putin talking points on many foreign policy issues ignites negative emotions in members of the US intelligence community. Their jaws drop and evoke the rhetorical question, “Who’s side is he on?”

Trump looked the other way when the CIA told him that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman (MBS) ordered the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi and that it was the Saudi government who killed him. This callous president admitted he looked the other way because there was a large order for military equipment pending. What will he say when he learns that the active shooter event at a Navy Air Station in Pensacola, Florida was the deed of a Saudi national? So, we sell them jets, they come here to train and then one of them decides to kill our citizens. Who is the enemy here, Mr. Trump?

Trump read the response to the Navy base deaths from King Salman, who said that the attack was “barbaric.” Mohammed Saeed Alshamrami, a Saudi National, allegedly killed our people with a handgun. Whether death by use of a handgun or a bone saw, the Saudi’s moral viewpoint of death has no credibility. Trump did the awkward sword dance, sold a bunch of planes to the Saudis, then looked the other way after multiple murders. Not to mention that it was Saudi pilots trained in Florida who flew planes into New York and Washington, D.C. buildings in 2001. According to the Washington Post, “As of Friday, (12-6-2019) there were 852 Saudis in the United States for Pentagon-sponsored training related to security cooperation.” And this just in, the handgun was purchased legally here in the US by using a loophole in our gun laws.

Let me say this in the most explicit way I can. Trump is trusting the wrong people in the world and it’s getting people killed. Now, Kim Jong-Un, another of Trump’s pals, is threatening to give the United States a “Christmas present.” Why doesn’t someone tell Trump to stop believing his own bullshit! What does it take to convince everyone that Donald Trump is BAD FOR AMERICA!

Trump has decided that anyone who didn’t vote for him, or any person or institution that challenges him, are the “enemy.” He declares that the press is the enemy of the people, a quote from such great “leaders” as the Soviet Union’s Joseph Stalin, who used it to describe anyone critical of himself. The phrase has been routinely used by authoritarian rulers as well as Donald Trump. Who would ever want to be associated with Stalin?

Trump demonizes people with his snarky and libelous tweets. Does he feel above reproach because of his position? Does he not understand that after leaving the office of the presidency he could face courts for defamation, slander and corrupt intent? He is not immune.

Russia doesn’t want our way of life to shine. Putin detests the spread of democracy fearing that one day he could be rejected and thrown out of office. MBS and his King father will kiss Donald Trump’s fat ass to get what they want, knowing the Orange One will never hold their feet to the fire. It’s sad to say that our president is a coward when it comes to Russia, North Korea, China, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and, yes, the NRA.

Trump has done nothing to make America safer from mass shooters, neo-Nazis, radical white supremist groups and homegrown terrorists. He freezes during the most tragic times. He works harder at placing blame and fabricating scapegoats than analyzing problems through solution-based logic. He speaks then retreats, listening to the sycophants. He has a perverted concept of friends and enemies, and his actions are based solely on whether he thinks someone likes him. What a fucking asinine fool.

The President of the United States must keep America safe. He or she must bring certain clarity to the job and make sure trusted advisors are heard. Without such vision and trust we have an obese old guy talking dirty shit-lies. Donald Trump is so stupid that he doesn’t understand how bad people are manipulating him. Rudy Giuliani is a bad person. Vladimir Putin is a bad person. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is a bad person. Making matters worse, most of the people left in Dickhead Donald’s administration are spineless yes men with no moral grounding or intelligence. You know it’s bad when a liberal like me is saying I wish John Bolton was still around the White House. It’s a dim time in America. Impeachment is fine, but a landslide election defeating Donald Trump would be the best outcome for our republic.

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.

THE TAO OF THE DEAL

Xi Jinping versus DJT

Tao means a road, a path, a way in which one does something. It’s a method, doctrine, or principle which includes simplicity, patience, and compassion. The Chinese way of thinking is very different from our western mindset. They concentrate on the principles of yin and yang, signifying that that all things exist as indivisible and contradictory opposites that are in harmony with the natural order.

The Tao of dealing with China and Chinese people in governance and business is straightforward. They need to feel comfortable with you. More will be accomplished at a large meal with copious amounts of alcohol. They charge for everything and you are never sure if this is just local corruption or simply the way things are done. You either pay to open the office and play by their rules or you don’t get into the market. Surely Donald Trump has discovered that Chinese business dealings are different, but he doesn’t bring compassion or patience to the table… and he doesn’t drink spirits.

The American news media have been trying to interpret every word of every tweet in Trump’s trade war. His language has a great effect, and more and more people are becoming nervous about his bull in the china shop mentality. Keep your eyes on the health of the world economy. It appears that Trump is out to wreck it, but could he be right in the long run?

I wonder if The Donald understands that he’s not just bullying some local vendor. He’s going up against one of the largest economies in the world. Can he distinguish his enemies from his friends? He’s thrown out all the good advice sent his way and is navigating solely within his prejudges and conspiracies. His fatal flaw is a belief that a win for him means someone else must lose and hurt. Trump wants to pour salt into any wound he thinks he creates. This is not how Chinese people think.

There is a measure of truth within the Tao way. A man’s word carries weight and a lie is not to be taken with salt. As Lao Tzu said in the Tao Te Ching, “The truth is not always beautiful, nor beautiful words the truth.” Donald Trump brags that he has “the best words,” but his use of bullshit and lies is in direct conflict with ancient Chinese philosophy.

Trump is playing the stock market like a video game. He gets off on seeing his tweets turned into actions and responses from his fans and enemies. The President believes he can comment the market up and Wall Street has proven this to be true. If Trump says he’s ready to make a deal with China, the market goes up. When a few moments later he announces he won’t make a deal with China until the election is past, the market goes down. This is more than irresponsible.

Donald Trump reminds me of a third grader attempting to get the attention of his classmate by pulling her ponytail. He gets a scream but loses the bigger long-term deal. The reason he keeps talking about the stock market is simply to get camera time. When he feels like he’s losing, he says something outrageous and then sits back to watch the result of his bombast. If the press were really against him, like he claims, they would simply stop covering him.

The Chinese want to find a solution quietly and, as you can see, President Xi Jinping is hardly ever quoted. His silence drives Trump crazy. If our president really understood the Tao of the deal, he would know that silence is not lack of attention. But it’s too late to change Donald Trump. This person in the wheelhouse of our economic ship is a madman like Captain Bligh in Mutiny on the Bounty. Unfortunately, the rest of his crew are blind Republicans who couldn’t muster a revolt if their lives depended on it.

The Chinese will come to the table sooner or later, but their goal will have nothing to do with making Donald Trump look good or bad. They will focus on the principles. They have determined the natural order, not the whims of our orange fake-tanned President. They gather strength from their 3,000-plus years of history, understanding that the USA has not reached even 300 years. They know they hold the cards and, like a good poker player, they don’t gloat or show.

The Tao of the deal is simple. The Chinese hold much of our debt as a country. If China wanted to be a player in Trump’s game, they would call their loans. That would bring the US to its knees and destroy its economy. China won’t do that, however, because of the harm it would inflict on the world economy. The simplicity is not in winning but crafting a deal that brings a win-win to all involved. If only Trump, a self-proclaimed Christian, could comprehend that this “Godless communist country” is just as capitalistic as we are. The difference is how they manage their money.

China has 1.386 billion mouths to feed, while the United States has only 327.2 million people. Mao Zedong, the leader of the conversion to communism, lived in caves and ate insects during the revolution. Donald Trump’s only sacrifice in life was taking the silver spoon from his mouth to spout nonsense and conspiracies. He’s an empty blue suit with no real desire to learn about the ways people act and react.

The sooner we get rid of Donald Trump, the sooner we will get back to the natural order of things. If he had kept his mouth shut, the economy would have gotten him reelected. Now, smart money is seeing the weakness in his inflexibility and lack of knowledge. He’s simply the wrong guy to run the economy.

THE WALLS ARE CRUMPLING

The Trump Train in Peril

Donald Trump, the titular head of the Republican party, was not able to maintain the majority in the House after the midterm elections, and now he is feeling the pain of investigations coming out of various committees of the House of Representatives. He may be able to veto laws, but he cannot stop the inquiries into his campaign, his inauguration, his presidency and his personal and business lives.

One could feel sorry for the novice politician, but with daily revelations about who he really is, one can see the puzzle pieces of a man who has far fewer morals than those evangelicals who genuflect at his feet. He has displayed demigod-like attitudes and actions toward the institutions of government as well as law and order. It has been reported that he commanded his underlings to ignore security problems with his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and demanded that the Justice Department sue to block the Time-Warner – AT&T merger. Why would he do these things? Well, we have a gangster in the White House who thinks he is above the law and it’s time that Congress does something about it.

Making up emergencies so that he can manipulate the Federal budget should be against the law. Threatening federal witnesses while offering pardons to people to falsify their testimony before Congress and courts is against the law. Where are the keepers of our democracy? Who will step forward to condemn these activities and block the power grab taking place before our very eyes?

On Monday (3-4-2019), House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler announced a sweeping investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign, businesses, transition and administration. This probe would lay the groundwork for Democrats if they choose to pursue impeachment proceedings against the President. And Trump could have avoided this whole mess by disclosing his income tax returns. They might help us understand why he pals with dictators and to whom he owes favors and money.

Many Americans are getting tired of Trump catering to his base in language, thoughts and deeds. Many people living here truly want a president who can lead us and do great things for America. Trump is not that guy. By dividing the country from the start, he has only emboldened both sides. The far left is more left and the far right has become so extreme that it seems murder is now permitted without rebuke from this president.

The charade we are witnessing is downgrading America in the eyes of other world democracies, while global dictators borrow Trump’s language for their speeches. Antagonizing the free press, spreading conspiracy theories and denigrating law enforcement may be an attempt to distract our attention from Trump’s dirty deeds.

Putin killed people he didn’t like. Trump looked away. The Saudi Crown Prince killed a reporter. Trump seemed confused about who did it. Kim Jong-Un imprisoned an American college student who died shortly after being returned to his parents. Trump claimed Kim didn’t know anything. Who is this person? A respectable country would have landed sanctions on the countries involved and marched their leaders into the world court.

Trump sees things through the distorted lens of always being rich and always being right. No one challenges him, but things are changing, and Donald J. Trump doesn’t have Fred and Mary Anne to tell him he’s a good boy. They raised a liar, cheat, racist and xenophobe.

Trump is simply a paper Mache president who will be brought down by the flames of the Senate, the House and his own justice department investigations. The ash that remains won’t be worth the pardon that the next fake president will give him. Pence is doomed to nothing, because his only power in Washington is kowtowing to Trump. Those Republicans who are now standing blindly with Trump will slowly be weeded out, and their futures back home will find them looking in from the outside. Trump needs a wall, but not on the southern border. He needs a wall built around himself and his family because the law is coming to get him. And in the end, AMERICA WILL WIN!

MISINFORMED PEOPLE

The Trumping Down of America

Every year, thousands of buzzards flock to Hinckley, Ohio. They have been doing this since 1957. I have no idea why they go there, but it leads to today’s question. When will the flocks of the country arrive at a logical perspective on Donald J. Trump? When will Republicans become clear thinking and realize that it must be country above party?

Obviously, the country is divided. The percentages are roughly 33% for Trump and 66% against him. Interestingly, we have three viable cable news networks. Two-thirds of them are against Trump and one is directly connected to his brain to make money for an Australian media mogul and his sons. This is more like Game of Thrones than a democratic, functioning government. Winter is here and it came in the form of a constitutional crisis. Trump wants more power, and if the courts and Congress give it to him, we will lose the foundation of our government.

Imagine if a school decided that all its teachers would be replaced by one crazy D-student off his meds. The classes would erupt in chaos, law makers would be summoned to hearings and parents would sue the school system. There is one executive who would be held responsible for the mess. The President. This is a great analogy for what is happening in our country.

Trump has decided that he knows more than anyone else. He believes Putin more than dedicated intelligence officers and law enforcement. His desire to proclaim a boogieman at the border and use of fear to govern the people of the United States is disturbing. He’s never graduated to a real president and he continues to be a tacky politician blaming everything on others. An authentic leader rarely takes credit and assumes blame when justified. Harry Truman’s great slogan was “the buck stops here.” Trump puts the buck in his pocket.

A friend of mine was watching CNN over the weekend instead of her favorite, Fox News. She said, “Gee, all the news they report are bad things about Trump.” I chuckled and replied, “They are super serving their base.” That is the way to get high ratings today. Stephen Colbert was doing okay until he launched his comedic attacks on Trump, then his ratings soared. The lesson is there that more people don’t like Trump than like him. It’s plain math. Are we paying attention?

Donald Trump has single-handedly dumbed down a certain segment of our citizens and they will follow him off the cliff. Many misinformed Americans are walking around believing that it’s okay to “make nice” with Russia and Putin. WTF?

Too many people are getting more aggressive and mean in the way they treat others. This is a side effect of a mean, uncaring President who has little to no empathy for anyone. I, for one, have become more aggressive as well. While I’m not particularly proud of that, it’s my nature to argue with anyone who spreads lies and propaganda. Anyone should do the same when confronted.

One of Trump’s most ardent supporters is Anne Coulter. During the press conference about his phony emergency, Trump said, “I hardly know her, I haven’t spoken to her in way over a year, but the press loves saying ‘Ann Coulter.’ Probably if I did speak to her, she’d be very nice, but she’s off the reservation.” Remember, she wrote the book, In Trump We Trust.

To her credit, Anne shot back with this tweet, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech. Forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.”

Anne has a strange world view and isn’t a patriot, but she’s not dumb. She was confronted and properly responded. I may not be a Republican, but if someone like Mitt Romney or John McCain can articulate why their viewpoint makes sense, I listen. However, I no longer listen to Trump. He makes no sense whatsoever and it’s clear that he’s in it solely for himself. Even if Mueller were to “vindicate” him, he will still be a shitty president and a lousy leader.

Will the smart people from both sides come together and make the changes we need in America today? Will honest, hard-working Americans find comfort in knowing the top guy will be replaced by someone who doesn’t lie, or will they revolt and cast aside their values to walk downwind of the demagogue? How can they endure the stench?

And here is a question for the court. When Trump says something stupid, why do you not take him at his word? Why did the courts ignore what he said about the travel ban ruling when he was a candidate? Why did the high court, in a sense, sanction Trump’s lies? This will be the question in the high court soon. Will the justices hear the words of our founding fathers and intrepret their true meaning, or have they also been dumbed down by Trump’s rhetoric?

There is no crisis at the border. It’s the same problem we have had since the beginning of America. When Trump takes credit for making America so great that everyone wants to come here, he disrespects who we are as a people. It’s the freedom they are coming to, asshole. We have always been the place people wanted to call home. That’s how my family got here. Step aside, you big orange blowhard. We have the future to face, and America will be a greater, better place only when you are gone.

A dangerous self-delusion

Trump peers over cliff, can he fly?

Your favorite President did nothing wrong!” sure sounds a lot like “I am not a crook!” When one engages in high risk marketing only two things can happen, and one is bad. In this case, the implication of the opposite is clear, he did do something wrong and he is covering up a whopper.

We are hearing tapes of the President’s voice instructing his lawyer to pay cash to hush-up a Playboy model. We are hearing him say not to believe what you read or hear. He is not well. He is not truthful and he is tearing down any respect left in the presidency of the United States of America.

The assumptive pronouncement, “Your favorite President…” is only meant to enrage the opposition. The enemy of the people is not the press, it is the people who are not checking the President’s reckless actions and statements. One group blindly follows this lunatic, while the other wants his disruption and instability to end. The resistance will pay for a clear path to normalization with a little bit of Constitutional crisis, if need be. In other words, most of the people in America think something is wrong. More than half believe Trump is doing a bad job, while the other 38% think he is being tried in a kangaroo court.

The self-delusional rhetoric from our Great Orange Leader feeds to the narrative that he is the victim, but the facts speak tons. More than 17 people have left this administration, either on their own or after being fired, with two or three of the appointments coming under fire as we speak. Might I remind everyone that these were people picked by Trump, so he must have made mistakes. Don’t hold your breath waiting for an apology.

After his fruitless photo-op with Kim Jong-Un and disastrous summit with Putin, Trump has proven that he’s an amateur on the world stage. He’s making the same mistakes which he has criticized former presidents of making. He draws his own red lines in his tweets, only to use hyperbole to divert the American public’s attention from these embarrassments. He’s a 250 pound tough guy perched on his toilet while blasting out all caps tweets. But when he gets face to face with world leaders needing a cautious approach, he kisses their asses. He spits in the faces of the allies we depend on to keep the world balanced and protected from dangerous regimes. Doing a Shylock shakedown of the NATO nations is beneath the leader of the free world. That challenge should have been kept in the family. Why give Russia hope? Or is that Trump’s primary role?

Trump’s latest eruption is another attempt to soil the Mueller Russian interference investigation. His acknowledgement of Russian interference was just another photo-op and left-handed compliment, but now he’s back to calling the whole thing a hoax. If you say that you agree with the intelligence community’s findings, but then throw massive shade on the investigation a day later, you are obviously not telling the truth. Trump equates the Mueller – Russian thing as all against him and a trick to delegitimatize his election. He’s not wrong. If Mueller finds anyone from the campaign involved in the Russian operation, Trump might be impeached just for being the benefactor of bad players within this campaign. Will any of the 17 people who left his administration be found involved in the meddling?

Trump today is attempting to move the story away from the delusional view of North Korea with a new attack on Iran. Last night’s tweet, (7-22-2018), shows the new tactic, “To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!”

Congress should pass a law that taxes the use of ALL CAPS on Twitter to pay for the Russian investigation. Trump is a shameful example of who we should not let near the nuclear codes. He’s not a “stable genius.” His actions clearly show that he’s just an over-blown, fat baby president without any knowledge of history or government. As soon as this president gets to the edge of the war cliff, will his supporters believe they all can fly with him or will he fall out of power? History and gravity will destroy this administration and take Trump to the bottom. In the end, poor little Donnie will be all alone with his money, big ties and bad makeup.

DONALD TRUMP IS A TRAITOR

Putin Over-Powers Another President

When Donald Trump ran for president, he painted everyone who had come before him as weak and ineffective. And some of the people in this country voted for him, believing his rhetoric that he was a tough guy and a great deal maker. We’re not getting a do-over on this one.

If the last 18 months have shown me anything, it is that Trump is a horrible negotiator and unbelievably sheepish when he is face to face with anyone of power. He was critical of the sitting Prime Minister of Great Britain in a newspaper interview, but denied he said anything negative when standing next to Theresa May. Once again, he called it fake news, which is his go-to line once caught in a lie. The tape recording of the interview that Trump referenced in his denial showed that the reporting was exactly what he said. After all, the newspaper was The Sun, owned by the same person who owns Fox News. Maybe there is something mentally wrong with the 45th President.

So, Trump and Putin had a press conference after their short four-hour discussion today (7-16-2018), and Trump disappointed and embarrassed America stepping into so much crap. It would have been better if he left his shoes and the asshole standing in them in Finland.

Fox News said that the Donald seemed weak and unprepared when he was standing with Putin in Helsinki, Finland. Even Paul Ryan, the Republican Speaker of the House of the United States spoke out, “There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world. That is not just the finding of the American intelligence community but also the House Committee on Intelligence. The president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals. The United States must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy.”

So what do we do now, America? We have a puppet president who is intimidated by strong men to such a degree that he makes unAmerican statements and actions which could harm our nation. Donald J. Trump has sided with Putin and Russia and believes that his own intelligence community cannot be trusted. Our president seems to be more worried about Russia selling gas and oil to Germany than the fact that Russia attempted to disrupt our democracy by meddling in our election.

Not surprisingly, Senator John McCain also rebuked the President after he witnessed Trump’s presentation “Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake.

President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be speaking from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant against the fair questions of a free press, and to grant Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies to the world.

It is tempting to describe the press conference as a pathetic rout – as an illustration of the perils of under-preparation and inexperience. But these were not the errant tweets of a novice politician. These were the deliberate choices of a president who seems determined to realize his delusions of a warm relationship with Putin’s regime without any regard for the true nature of his rule, his violent disregard for the sovereignty of his neighbors, his complicity in the slaughter of the Syrian people, his violation of international treaties, and his assault on democratic institutions throughout the world.

Coming close on the heels of President Trump’s bombastic and erratic conduct towards our closest friends and allies in Brussels and Britain, today’s press conference marks a recent low point in the history of the American Presidency. That the president was attended in Helsinki by a team of competent and patriotic advisors makes his blunders and capitulations all the more painful and inexplicable.

No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant. Not only did President Trump fail to speak the truth about an adversary; but speaking for America to the world, our president failed to defend all that makes us who we are—a republic of free people dedicated to the cause of liberty at home and abroad. American presidents must be the champions of that cause if it is to succeed. Americans are waiting and hoping for President Trump to embrace that sacred responsibility. One can only hope they are not waiting totally in vain.” GOD BLESS JOHN MCCAIN.

During the Helsinki press conference, Putin gave Trump a ceremonial soccer ball from the recently concluded World Cup in Moscow. South Carolina Republican Lyndsey Graham showed his thinking and sense of humor by saying, “Meddling & collusion are NOT the same thing. Russia did meddle in 2016 election & are trying it again. I’ve seen no evidence of collusion, plenty evidence of Russian meddling. Russia didn’t beat Clinton. Trump beat Clinton. Bad day for the US. Can be fixed. Must be fixed. Finally, if it were me, I’d check the soccer ball for listening devices and never allow it in the White House.”

The only way to right this ship is for Congress to remove Trump’s power over foreign policy. If the Republicans cannot rein him in, then America should vote more Democrats into office to balance this insanity. And if things get worse, we should not be so shy about advancing a discussion about impeachment. It is clear that Donald J. Trump is unfit to be President of the United States.
