LET’S GET ONE THING PERFECTLY CLEAR

Nothing Trump says, tweets or does has anything to do with what is best for America, the American people or the world, or to protect and maintain American security, values or democracy.  Trump doesn’t give a rat’s hind quarters, or an airborne sex act, about America, the American people or the world.

Every single thing Trump says, tweets and does is solely to feed his ego, to maintain the roar of the crowd by his core cult of ignorant racists at his ridiculous rallies, and to line his pockets.  Period.

If Trump happens to accomplish anything that may be good or partially good it is only by coincidence or a fortuitous by-product of his real intent.

The fact that the Republican Party, and the Republicans in Congress, does not understand this is truly troubling. 

But what is more troubling is the possibility that they do fully understand this, but don’t care.  And the possibility that they fear losing the support of Trump’s core cult of ignorant racists more than they fear the true damage Trump is doing and can do to America and the world.

Trump is a delusional, ignorant, incompetent and totally self-absorbed malignant narcissist and demagogue who must be removed from office as soon as possible by whatever means is available.

And the Republican Party must be “punished” for their embrace and support of Trump at the ballot box. 

Have you got that?

THE TRUE NATIONAL EMERGENCY IS 
TRUMP IN THE WHITE HOUSE



Trump, and Trump alone, is 100% responsible for the government shutdown – truly holding America hostage until he gets his nonsensical border wall.

But the Republican Party must share the blame for its continuance because of its accepting and embracing Trump’s wall and the lies he created to justify its need.

We must open the government immediately, forget the wall, and let Democrats and Republicans in Congress discuss, debate and properly fund legitimate methods of border security.  The Republican Party MUST “just say no” to Trump’s lies and nonsense.

There is no new or imminent threat or “national crisis” at our southern border.  Border security and immigration are ongoing issues that we have been dealing with for decades.

It is not that border wall = border security in the same way that Trump = moron.  The border wall is only one option, and a poor option that is not supported by experts or the majority of the American people.   

A wall is truly a metaphor, and one that is in opposition to basic American values.  The most famous wall in modern history was the Berlin wall, although that was more to keep people from getting out of the country than to keep immigrants from getting in.  We all remember Reagan’s famous quote, “"Mr. Gorbachev - tear down this wall."

The shutdown, solely because of a manufactured national security issue based on lies and distortions, could actually cause harm to our national security.  Let’s think logically.

1. The bulk of terrorists or potential terrorists come through airports, a proven fact that even FOX NEWS acknowledges, and not via the southern border.   U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered only 6 immigrants on the U.S.-Mexico border whose names were in a federal database of known or suspected terrorists, not the 4,000 Trump and his paid liars have claimed.

2. Airports are protected by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and customs officials. 

3. The shutdown affects the TSA and customs officials.  

4. If the shutdown diminishes the effectiveness of airport security it has the potential for allowing more possible terrorists into the country. 

I recently posted on Twitter and Facebook that I believe I know why Trump thinks there is a national crisis at our southern border.  He must have seen the 1984 movie RED DAWN, where Russia takes over Mexico and uses it as entry to invade the US.  Trump does realize that this is just a movie – doesn’t he?

Actually, Russia didn’t need Mexico to “invade” the US.  All they needed was easily played narcissist Trump in the White House, which they wanted and got.
  
The bottom line – The issues of border security and immigration require intelligent thought and debate – and we all know Trump is incapable of intelligent thought.

IS A PUZZLEMENT

Continued acceptance, support and defense of unacceptable and indefensible Trump by the Republican Party and Republicans in Congress is truly a puzzlement.

Trump does not support traditional Republican or conservative politics or policies.  The Republican or conservative agenda is NOT the agenda of Trump.

Trump’s true agenda is 3-fold –

1. Feed his ego

2. Line his pockets

3. Please his core cult of ignorant deplorable racists so they will continue to cheer his every word at rallies (back to #1).

These three items, and nothing else, motivate every single thing Trump says, does and tweets.  He has absolutely no concern for the security of America or what is best, or even good, for America, Americans or the world.  He only cares what is best for Trump.

What Trump has allegedly accomplished for Republicans and conservatives – getting 2 supposed conservative judges on the Supreme Court and passing alleged tax reform – could have been done, and done better, by any Republican President, considering the Republican control of both houses of Congress.  These accomplishments have nothing to do with Trump.

Trump has continually acted contrary to true conservative philosophy and policies.  Trump is most certainly not a conservative, and, until he decided that the Republican Party provided the best chance for his candidacy, was not a Republican.  In the past he contributed more to Democratic candidates than Republican ones – although he contributed to candidates from both Parties for the specific, and acknowledged, purpose of buying potential personal influence and favors, and not because of any support of or belief in political objectives.

Trump the man, the businessman and the President has done every single “bad act”, consistently and unapologetically, that Republicans have criticized Democrats for in the past.  He has actually done every single bad act,often gleefully, that has ever derailed the political campaign of any politician, regardless of Party, many times over.

Trump has never performed a single totally unselfish positive act in his entire adult life.

Trump lies.  This has been proven over and over again.  He lies to everyone.  About everything.  Every day.  It is very literally impossible to believe a word he says.

It is impossible for a person of intelligence to support and defend Trump the man and the President – unless he or she is actually, like Trump himself, a racist or motivated solely by personal financial interests.  An intelligent person with a conscience can certainly support and defend traditional Republican and traditional conservative political philosophies and policies – but an intelligent person with a conscience cannot support and defend Trump.

MORON-IN-CHIEF


The president has shut down the United States during the holidays because he didn’t like being criticized by Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter.

How utterly ridiculous that is!

Do you need any more proof that Trump is a moron?

The president spends more time watching tv news reports about himself then meeting with advisers, experts, staff and legislators, educating himself on the issues, or actually working.

How utterly ridiculous that is!

Do you need any more proof that Trump is a moron?

The president does not make foreign policy decisions based on serious thought or ideology after consulting with advisers, experts and our allies. Trump makes foreign policy decisions unilaterally to dominate the headlines and put damaging news about him “below the fold”.

How utterly ridiculous that is!

Do you need any more proof that Trump is a moron?

The president responds to anyone who challenges, criticizes or questions him not with serious discussion or debate, but him by calling them fat, ugly, stupid, weak, low energy, hormonal, liar, idiot, crooked, etc., etc., etc.

How utterly ridiculous that is!

Do you need any more proof that Trump is a moron?

The president respects, actually idolizes and envies, and courts dictators and authoritarian leaders, and attacks and alienates the democratic leaders of our allies.

How utterly ridiculous that is!

Do you need any more proof that Trump is a moron?

Do I really need to go on?  I think we can all agree – Trump is a moron! 

The President of the United States should NEVER be a moron. Trump must go!

TRUMP – A PRESIDENT OF HISTORIC FIRSTS!

The current President of the Unites States is a dangerous, deplorable, despicable, incompetent, ignorant, totally self-absorbed malignant narcissist whose sole motivation in everything is feeding his ego and lining his pockets, who lies to everyone about everything every day, who doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground about anything, nor any desire to learn anything, and who has no clue about the responsibilities and limitations of his office.

Prior to 2017, never in the history of the United States has anyone ever made this statement.  And, also prior to 2017, never in the history of the United States has a majority of people in America and around the world ever believed this statement to be completely or partially true.

And then there is this -

The Russian government wanted Trump in the White House, and actively and aggressively worked to influence the US Presidential election to benefit Trump’s campaign.  Without Russia's interference in the election, Trump would not be in the White House today.

Again, prior to 2017, never in the history of the United States has this statement been proven to be true about any President or Presidential election.

These are only two of the many historic firsts of the Trump Presidency.

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS DEAD!

By embracing Trump, and becoming the “Party of Trump”, the once Grand Old Party has also embraced deceit and dishonesty, cowardice and hypocrisy.  The Republican Party has abandoned American values and lost all credibility as a legitimate mainstream political party.  It is truly dead and now must be buried.

Trump has committed, consistently and unapologetically throughout his business and political life, every single “bad act” that Republicans have claimed, rightfully or wrongfully, were committed by a Democrat and that they have denounced in the past.

The Republican Party is literally saying to the American public today that only Democrats can commit, be charged with, and be punished for illegal and unethical activity.  The same activity performed by an alleged Republican is neither illegal nor unethical and should not be punished. 

The term “Republican” has officially become a synonym for the word “hypocrisy”.

America needs a new political party that accepts and represents real “conservative” political philosophy.  The Republican Party has not represented true conservatism for years.

The basic principles of American conservative political philosophy are:

• Protect & Maximize Individual Rights
• Ensure a Limited Government
• Uphold the Rule of Law
• Commitment to Federalism and the Separation of Powers
• Maintain Free & Open Markets (Economic & Social)

Everything Trump does and wants to do as President, and by virtue of embracing Trump the Republican Party now supports, is directly opposed to these principles.

A true conservative party would denounce the philosophy of the religious right, “evangelicals” and “Tea Party” that the Republican Party has erroneously also embraced.  Prior to the emergence and embrace of Trump, the biggest threat to the Republican Party was the Tea Party movement of the religious right. 

The second principle listed above says “Ensure a Limited Government”.  True conservatives believe that the government should intrude in a citizen’s personal and business life as little as possible.  The role of government should be to provide citizens with the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals; conservatism emphasizes empowerment of the individual to solve problems.  Contrary to the belief in limited government, the religious right, “evangelicals” and Tea Party supporters want the government to tell citizens how to live their lives by forcing the specific religious beliefs of fundamentalist Christianity on them.

The separation of church and state in the Constitution DEMANDS that the individual religious beliefs of a specific religion or sect NEVER be legislated.

Barry Goldwater, the former poster boy for American conservatism, said –

Religious factions will go on imposing their will on others unless the decent people connected to them recognize that religion has no place in public policy.”

And -

I am a conservative Republican, but I believe in democracy and the separation of church and state. The conservative movement is founded on the simple tenet that people have the right to live life as they please as long as they don't hurt anyone else in the process.”

A new truly Conservative Party must rise to replace the dead Republican Party – and vocally and aggressively oppose and denounce Trump and everything he, and sadly now the Republican Party, stands for!

HOW WE GOT WHERE WE ARE

Trump’s core cult of deplorable ignorant racists makes up about 30% of voters.  Sadly almost 1/3 of Americans are deplorable ignorant racists.

These people have always existed, but never acted as a united force before.  In the past they were never taken seriously and, rightfully so, never spoken directly to by any legitimate political candidate.  But they found their savior and “white knight” (emphasis on the “white”) in Trump, who embraced them as they embraced him.  Who else would cheer Trump at his rallies – and his only reason for continuing a serious campaign was to hear the roar of the crowd.  These deplorable sheep will follow and actively support Trump no matter what he does or what “sin” he commits.  He was correct when he said he could shoot someone in broad daylight on 5th Avenue and not lose their support and adoration.

Trump galvanized and empowered the deplorable ignorant racists of America into a cohesive and consistent voting bloc - a voting bloc that, unfortunately, the Republican Party now takes seriously and courts.

Because these deplorables wrongly consider themselves to be evangelical Christians, Trump, the least “Christian” of any candidate, pandered to his core cult by also pandering to the religious right, increasing his base of support.  Trump truly represents all elements of dangerous and wrong-minded political philosophy, legitimizing and empowering hate, selfishness and feelings of superiority – three elements that define Trump’s motivation and behavior, and his very life.

Trump won the Republican candidacy for President because there were too many names on the ballot in the Republican primaries.  When there are 10 or more choices, a candidate with a consistent almost 30% of the vote will always come out ahead. 

Many people, especially Republicans, had an irrational hatred for the Clinton family, and, erroneously, believed Trump to be the “lesser of two evils”.  Clinton won her party’s nomination because there were too few candidates in the Democratic primaries.  If the Democrats had run any other candidate for President Trump would not be in the White House today.

One reason “normal” Americans even considered a person like who Trump was erroneously considered to be by some as an appropriate option was a justifiable frustration with the incompetence and inaction of Congress – a result of the excessive partisan contention and divisiveness that started when Newt Gingrich first became Speaker of the House – and with “traditional” politicians. 

Putin and Russia, recognizing that as the ultimate narcissist he could be easily played, wanted Trump in the White House, and did everything they could to accomplish this end.

And finally – we must never forget that Trump did not win the election.  He lost by 3 million votes.  He was placed in office by the Electoral College.  One of the reasons the founding fathers created the Electoral College was to prevent an irresponsible demagogue from taking office.  It certainly failed in 2016.

There is no doubt that Trump was the absolute worst choice for President.  No President in our history has been as ignorant, incompetent and totally self-absorbed.
