To NOT comment is a dereliction…..

Trump.

He disses his friends, he cozies up to a known criminal and thug, he is revealed as a traitor to his own country and institutions and then…then…THEN he claims he misspoke.

Which, of course, he did NOT!  He lied about misspeaking and only because his ‘advisers’ explained that he must.  They also WROTE the words he was supposed to read at today’s press briefing only to have him depart from them into unintelligible gibberish every so often.  The discrepancy between the language that was written for him and the words he spoke extemporaneously was breathtaking.  A sane person wrote words that an insane person was supposed to read.  He couldn’t do it!

I cannot dwell on Trump-the-idiot (it is boring, I know) but I can wonder where it is all headed?  Logic doesn’t play much of a role in predictions on this issue because logically he should not even be there.  Madness has prevailed in the United States for over two years (even before the election).  Clinton got almost 3 million more votes.  The Republicans have NOT reigned him in and yet they hobbled Obama.  The US – under this business tycoon stable genius – has increased world tensions, military buildup and the national debt by a staggering amount and yet the White House is talking more tax breaks and catering to dictators.  Debt and moral failure is the new Great Again?

The political and managerial contradictions keep mounting up.  What should go up, doesn’t.  What should never fall, clangs loudly on the floor.  Allies alienated.  Enemies suck-holed.  Environment disregarded.  National Parks sold.  Free Trade sabotaged.  Wall Street parties on while Main Street writhes in pain and hunger.  White supremacists pandered to. Racism and cruelty instead of hospitality and compassion for the huddled masses.  When all is turned upside down, how can anyone predict anything but catastrophic ruin?

So, is that my prediction?  Strangely, no.  America has a perverse kind of genius that underlies all that it does.  No matter what, no matter who gets hurt, or how much blood gets spilled, no matter the environmental consequences, the economic skulduggery, the international level crimes, the US makes money off of it. Somehow they get richer.

Of course, the price they pay for that is loss of respect, loss of humanity, loss of moral standing and long standing relationships rent asunder but they think it is all worth it to make a buck.  And they WILL make a buck.  And, in money they have trust.  If they have enough guns and if they have enough money, they believe they are going to do well.  Those are today’s American values and they will play out.

My prediction: this year and the next are a turning point in modern world history.  If Trumpism continues unchallenged by the so-called’ checks and balances of the US Constitution (so far not present or accounted for) then the world may shift to a significantly more dystopian state and the Judeo-Christian values we have come to believe in will be eroded beyond redemption.  If, instead, the evil emperor and his even-more evil courtiers is revealed to have no clothes and truth and fact once again have prime legitimacy along with basic human values, then it may herald a new dawning in our pathetic and incremental struggle for a morsel of enlightenment.

You know where I stand.

As far away as I can.

  1. I think it will be veerrrrrry interesting after the November mid terms.
    He’s losing Republican support in droves.
    If the Democrats grab the Senate and the House…..hooo boy look out.
    Investigative committees up the wazoo.
    ANd they will stymie any bills he wants passed. Lame Duck Trump or Dictator Trump…..either way . It wont end well.

    I dont think he expected to win the first election and I dont expect him to run in the second term. Too vain. Too self centered to subject himself to another year of campaigning.
    I cant wait for the next playmate to surface……..you absolutely know there’s more out there.

  2. I see America moving closer to Fascism on a wave of populism. He revels in what he could do if only he were the last president and first dictator of America. Unthinkable but what many Americans seem to want is a strong man and he says, “I’m your man.” Democratic processes are an inconvenience and a fascist need only to say, “Make it so and it is.” Some issues are so important to some Americans that they are willing to make a Faustian bargain. Many would accept democracy being destroyed if only Roe v. Wade were to be over turned and other conservative values reinstated. The Faustian Bargain in the making.

    Constitutional America Is Indeed The Last Stand For Liberty On This Earth!
    Many things bear repeating nowadays – everything worthwhile, anyway. Anyone, especially writers/commentators who are sharing their thinking, broadcast, quickly learn that at least two thirds of the audience they last had either weren’t listening or will have forgotten some of what was said by their next appearance. And at their next appearance, two thirds of the crowd will be brand-new. Such is certainly the case on the cyberstreets of the Internet. And that being the case, I need to repeat the following bit of truth. For those who have heard it already, forgive me…

    A lot of really dumb people are picking up the chant that Donald J Trump and his presidency are somehow comparable to Hitler and his Third Reich. You have to be really stupid to even feel that way. For starters, Hitler owned and used the media – newspapers and radio – to control the people he absorbed beneath him. But, conservatively, ninety percent of President Trump’s enemy is easily ninety percent of the big network, liberal media empire now in complete collusion with the left who hates him and wants him destroyed. Next, I repeat that Donald Trump, unlike Hitler, is anything but an anti-Semite. And now to add even more grief to your fragile big media formed misconceptions, Trump is not using ‘socialism’ as any part of the disguise that so many despotic leaders have used in tricking the people into welcoming so many dictatorships. Donald Trump is working uphill against the real and now unmistakable Hitlerian collective known as the DNC. I am certain that a liberal Ma and Pa Snopes is waiting even now to help all you snowflakes through this time of ‘inconvenient’ discomfort I have just laid on your heads. But, short of you babies doing your own homework (which won’t happen), be prepared for a life of a whole lot of pain. There. Now that that is out of the way…

    It was another dictator, we might call him a somewhat ‘softer’ dictator, King George III, who expressed this quite dictatorial statement: “Everyone who does not agree with me is a traitor and a scoundrel.” And upon that very foundational sentiment the new left is desperately trying to destroy our current and popularly elected president. They are partnered with the liberal media puppeteers, the modern-day Goebbels of opinion-shaping Hitlerian publicists. They are, in concert with a dumb bunch of citizenry, beating the hell out of our great, brave and noble (but still only human) president. A pox upon them and all that concerns them.

    It is now in the name of ‘America’, and kindred terms such as ‘American’, ‘Americanism’ and ‘patriotism’ – terms the left and their partnering news and celebrity entertainers have squirmed so hard in redefining – that they are trying to appeal to all those who are stupid enough to join them in wrecking the real thing. Weren’t they the ones who were so roundly condemning ‘Americanism’, ‘Nationalism’ and ‘Patriotism’ as “NAZISM”?!! Of course. The leadership of the professional-politician-built empire of what amounts to an emerging and collective, ‘Fourth Reich’, have now exposed themselves at lightspeed. And they can no longer hide behind deceptive labels like ‘patriot’ or ‘Democrat’or ‘liberal’. They are themselves hypocritically treasonous to the nth degree, in that their ‘patriotic’ objections never surfaced, prior to Trump, when the identical complaints they are now making about him could have been entirely justified, and on steroids, against his predecessor, including Hillary & Co.

    The media didn’t utter a sound when Obama – openly and on our nickel – interfered with the Israeli election
    I have again brought the video that I’ve used in an earlier article. By now, most everyone has seen this clip of Barack Obama caught, on a hot mic, shamelessly revealing that he had lied to his reliant and trusting nation – lied to all of us – in the assurances he gave, under his breath, to Russian president Medvedev to hand on to Vladimir Putin. Comfortingly laying his hand on Medvedev’s jacket sleeve, he made promises that he had no intention of sharing with the rest of us. Indeed, if Donald Trump had done that, the masked cowards of antifa and the morons of ‘Hillary’s Resistance’ would even now be down at Washington Mall building a gallows for Trump’s return to the WhiteHouse.

    The author can barely keep his seat, as he is hammering his keyboard, in the ongoing, full realization of this outrage and travesty! Liars like our former president, his lying, thieving and treacherous Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, his lying attorney general, and all who make up his shadow government – eight years in the building – are now out to destroy the only real president we have had since Ronald Reagan. And both Ronald and Donald were destined to face the powers of hell in order to defend our Constitution. But no one, short of a few martyrs and our Lord himself, has seen the undeserved and vicious opposition that our President Donald J Trump has. God help him!

    All the fatherless sons who have now stepped forward to hurl insults at our President’s person and recent WORK – from NATO to Helsinki – have subsequently exposed themselves as the true traitors. They want to make the world safe only for themselves in an assured ride on the cream of what is left of our free trading, capitalistic Democratic Republic. And where the carcass is, just as our Lord told us, there also are the vultures. And now liars and scumbags like former FBI head, James Comey, are using that newly fashioned crowbar of redefined terms, those words and phrases they have all helped to so bastardize – ‘Americanism’,‘patriotism’, ‘patriot’ and ‘… our country’s values’ – in order to pry the uninformed and unwary into a coup against the last straining straw between our Constitutional Government and an arbitrary, emotional chaos which is always in place before a tyrannical takeover. I should say that the people leading this charge should be ashamed of themselves. But time has shown that they have no shame. Maybe in another article, but I have a plethora of video documentation showing the above-mentioned rogues lying their liberal ‘donkeys’ off in the course of doing everything from tv shows to appearances before Congress. Their confidently smiling dishonesty truly knows no bounds.

    Our president has dared to speak honestly before the world – expressing pause before rubberstamping the stock findings of intelligence and investigative agencies that are clearly under the control of the ghost left behind by his predecessor. Because he didn’t immediately fold, he is now labeled a ‘traitor’ because he won’t act as though Mueller and his attack dogs aren’t working for his wiretapping political enemies. The media didn’t utter a sound when Obama – openly and on our nickel – interfered with the Israeli election. That was outrageous.

    America has been told by an empowered left to keep it mouth shut and lie down in front of the approaching train of an unprecedented ‘Americanism’
    America has been told by an empowered left to keep it mouth shut and lie down in front of the approaching train of an unprecedented ‘Americanism’ which the framers could only carefully caution us about. We are as a nation, RIGHT NOW, fatally becoming the factious mob those founders, in their prayerful foresight, had so lamented. But they knew – through a now extinct level of familiarity with history – the behavior of lazy, ignorant people left to govern themselves. And 21st century America perfectly distills the motive behind behind solemn warnings like, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” WE ARE THERE. And indeed most of us have not done our homework.

    But there is something happening now that brings us to a circumstance that could only happen in our United States! Unlike Nazi Germany, we still have a plurality of armed and informed people who will not go quietly. And therein lie the formative conditions of a terrible danger that makes my head spin in just trying to grasp it: A great portion of our nation is truly not willing to walk into the trap that the left is currently trying to spring on our president and his disenchanted and burgeoning crowd of supporters. Simultaneously, and, again, unprecedented, is that many of us are interlaced and unusually dependent upon a predominantly leftist-owned ‘information highway’. Much of that highway is now beginning to, at the obvious prompting of the left, close down and divide the communication and ranks of anything even looking like solidarity amongst a largely Christian, conservative right. Fox News is on the block, and – for the right price – could at any moment become another CNN. That itself is horrific. With the flick of a switch, all communication can be shut down or limited to a preferred group. As the old saying goes, “Freedom of the press often belongs to those who own the press.” Further, Mark Zuckerberg knows that his giant network’s ‘terms of agreement’ effectively supersede a lot of US law that has not kept up with the cyber-age. Now blend all the above with the engineered enmity of the last 40 years of an increasingly Islam-intimidated world being aimed toward tiny Israel. And you have a world, a ‘globally governed’ world, that looks to me like precisely the atmosphere Jesus described as being in place just prior to his return.

    Now that was an ending you certainly hadn’t expected. But it is one that I will sign my name to – regardless of the cost. Whether you believe in God, we are living in a time where the ‘rest stops’ at the forks in the roads are fewer and fewer and shorter in duration. We are living at a time when prayer and renewed vigilance are our two most valuable possessions – much needed things that can’t be taken from us. Me, I am saying, “Damn the torpedoes!” “Go, Trump!” “Go, Netanyahu!” “God bless America!”

    “Because Without America, There Is No Free World!” And that fact, more than any other, is why the very real devil so much wants us destroyed.

    • Wow! John! HOLEEEEEE!!!!! You are back? Or….are you back simply to pass on David Merrik’s almost totally incoherent message?
      I mean….he is partly right, of course….there would largely be no free world without the US. That good ol’ Constitution laid it out pretty well….good document, that. I suspect that freedom in a much purer and truer sense would exist than the blindly ignorant, corporate-controlled freedom as has evolved in the US but still, I think the US Constitution deserves a helluva lot of credit for much of what we have come to know as freedom in the west. I’ll give him that.
      One freedom that seems most obvious for them is the freedom to be ignorant. Stupider than hell is a God-given right, eh? But the rest of his message is gibberish, JfA. Incoherent, rambling, ignorant, biased, poorly-written gibberish. Surely you can give me that? No? If not gibberish, then at least it was poorly written and incoherent? C’mon….?
      To be fair, that piece shared the same semi-lucid linguistic style so favoured by Trump. Idiot-speak to grammarians. Madness to the rest of us. But maybe I am wrong? Maybe this is some kind of parallel to Orwellian Newspeak that you and others in the alt-universe understand completely? I dunno…it all sounds like mental illness to me.
      And I am not alone.
      But, as for us? You and me? Good to see you back, ol’ boy. You are fiesty, I’ll give you that. For future reference, you do NOT usually present as stupidly as Merrik. You do yourself a favour by writing your own stupid stuff. It’s all silly-crap but somehow kinda human. I get the impression that, if we kept it to drinking beer, grilling steaks, talking cars and maybe tractors, I would enjoy your company for an hour, maybe 90 minutes. Hell, if you shut the hell up, maybe even two hours.
      I say that because you MUST BE knowledgeable about something…right? I mean, you GOTTA KNOW something about something…….?

    • ‘’Without America, there is no free world?” An isolated America promotes freedom? Really? An isolated America promoting the values of “America First” promotes a free world! An America expecting tribute and running a protection racket creates a “free World?” No wonder Putin loves, “Useful idiots!”

    • Gerry! Dawg! C’mon…there is always room for dissent but I must admit I kind of expect a 3 digit IQ based argument and John doesn’t seem to have a lot to spare when it comes to politics. Still, that could be just my bias. I tend to think anyone who has anything nice to say about Trump is an idiot but John has occasionally said something I didn’t pop a vein over. I am OK with John. Ya gotta remember…the poor sap is from Alberta. Working in all those sour gas fumes and gas spumes and petro poisons eats away the grey matter.

  4. Those who trumpet most about freedom seem to be the first to want to take it away. We’ve been watching the PBS-production, The Vietnam War. I found some of Richard Nixon’s speeches very stirring. If you are going to misspeak, then you should do it well.

    Unchecked capitalism is all about making a buck, isn’t it? Collateral damage? If you are not a winner, then you a just a pathetic loser.
