Post #872: Random Observations

There is no excuse for going nearly two weeks without a single post - other than to say that my heart hasn't really been in it lately. The age of Donald Trump is light years past the point of being comically amusing. That this hideous sociopath and common pervert has plans to completely subvert the Constitution is not merely obvious, it's happening before our eyes. Ordering his underlings not to submit to congressional scrutiny is displaying an authoritarian bent that has never been seen in this country. Not even under Dick Nixon did things get this weird. The next year-and-a-half is going to be quite interesting. We'll just leave it at that. Some thoughts:
1. "My Great and Unmatched Wisdom"
In case you missed it that was Trump a few days ago referring to his own judgment. When the hell was the last time you heard and leader of a democracy refer to himself in such away? That was a trick question. You haven't! You need to go back to Saddam Hussein for that kind of self-praise. It's bad enough that by now it is painfully obvious to anyone paying even scant attention that the president of the United States is a fucking idiot, but he's nuttier than any despot to come down the pike since Idi Amin. This rolling constitutional crisis has fifteen months to play itself out. Unless and until he is forcibly removed from office, we've no other choice but to ride this catastrophe out. Hang in there, folks!
2. Abandoning the Kurds
This week we had another stark example presented to us (as if any more examples were really needed) that Donald J. Trump is a paid asset of a hostile foreign power. Conceding the fate of the Kurdish people to the hands of ISIS is as reckless and cruel an act of diplomacy that has ever been committed by an American president. The only human being on the planet that this benefits is Vladimir Putin. Where I come from it's called "treason". Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were put to death for as much sixty-five years ago. I'm just putting the idea out there.
3. Shut up, Rudy
Someone really ought to check Rudy Giuliani's calendar. It is a perfect illustration of Trump's judgment that he has chosen the former New York mayor to be his legal representative on the talk show circuit. Like Trump, when one views interviews with Rudy recorded three-or-more decades ago, it is pathetically apparent that something has gone seriously haywire between his ears between then and now. The man's reputation would have been better off if, after having left office in the months after September 11, 2001, he had gone into quiet retirement and written his memoirs. As it stands, his historical reputation will be eternally soiled for the way he has conducted himself. It's all pretty pathetic.

5. FLASHBACK (10/11/19):

The impeachment of Dick Nixon only reached the 51 percent number about a week before he was forced to resign. As of today, the number of Americans supporting Trump's impeachment is at 52 percent. It's time to get the ball rolling.

Why bother reading you any more Tom, you don't publish posts.

Just like China, censorship is now the hallmark of the left.

Abandoning the Kurds? So are you a Chicken Hawk after all, war is ok, a war monger? My how I wonder what you would say if Obama had done this. Pretty sure I know.

I read other posts and Conservative blogs their comments reflect on the disgust and the poll numbers rising for impeachment and removal for the current chief in the WHITE HOUSE.

The administration is in full chaos Trump has brought a new definition to the highest office in the land ignominy.

Keep it up. How a photograph of you with a bow tie like back in kindergarten class on September 15, 1963.

"Why bother reading you any more Tom, you don't publish posts." LOL! As if he has ever actually read anything.

Man, it's the same sad song and rhythmless dance with you everywhere you go, isn't it JTF?

Censorship == Your Comments to a private blog don't get published. You seem to live a charmed, ignorant life.
