we know who he listens to, don’t we?

Such totally disgraceful and morally reprehensible acts are the reason the world and our allies no longer can trust us. Trump is a lying pig who is totally controlled by the Kremlin. His obvious appeasement of Putin is a vulgar display of greed and fear triumphing over his oath of office.

a Memorial Day reminder

Image may contain: one or more people, text that says 'MAL Just a friendly reminder that Trump has cost taxpayers $73 MILLION to play golf 123 Days (23% of his days in Office); but he told Veterans on Monday there would be MORE CUTS to VA programs to save the nation money.'

This is what leadership doesn’t look like.

As we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country, let’s never forget that this cowardly, draft dodger is a lying pig that consistently sides with dictators and our enemies to denigrate those that have honorably served.

what have we become?

I do not find this remarkable. I find it remarkably sad. I am deeply ashamed of the image our country now presents to the rest of the world. The acceptance of such corruption and the glorification of such immorality is just incomprehensible to me. The blind acceptance of the sheer brutishness of this man sickens me.

nepotism for dummies

For those who haven’t had the privilege of a great deal of global travel, nepotism at this scale is considered perfectly normal in most African states and other nations ruled by dictators, warlords and other corrupt leaders. What makes it noteworthy is that it is not the norm, and is even considered illegal in most democratic states. But, what else should we expect from the biggest #BLOTUS ever elected?

birds of a feather

Too bad Trump is not as smart as he thinks he is.

It’s not fake news that dictators and totalitarian leaders throughout history have recognized the need to silence those who tell the truth. An honest media always poses the biggest threat to those who would misuse power.

The first step in controlling that media is to discredit it. I find it fascinating that we never heard of fake news until we got a fake leader. Coincidence? I think not.

Who are we to believe? The Liar-in-Chief is pathologically unable to tell the truth and changes his story every other day in spite of video evidence to the contrary. On the other side is the free press.

As for me, I am sticking with, and standing up for a free press. Their credibility has stood the test of time, and a free press is our best defense available against scoundrels, thieves and dictators like all those listed above. And right now, we need the best defense we can get.

birds of a feather…

Do you know who else discredited the media? lenin, Stalin,Hitler,Mussolini, Castro,Mao, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Hussein, Assad, Putin, ISIS, Boko Haram #Trumpocalypse:

We are known by the company we keep. At least that’s what my mom always told me.

This morning, I just saw Russian agents meeting with the #BLOTUS in the White House. This is one day after firing the head of the FBI who was investigating his treasonous ties to Russia. From the photos I could not tell who had the biggest smiles. The #BLOTUS was definitely enjoying hosting his friends.

What is blatantly obvious, however, is that the current leader of our nation is far more comfortable with dictators, thugs, and strongmen than he is with the rule of law and the dictates of the Constitution.

The #BLOTUS covets absolute power. Anyone with the courage to challenge that power will be eliminated. FBI Director Comey wasn’t the first to feel his ire, and sadly will not be the last.

a circus has to have monkeys

Machiavelli lived in the 15th century, but his methodology for determining the intelligence of a ruler is still valid today. Looking at the sycophants and henchmen around the #BLOTUS tells us a lot, not only concerning his intelligence, but his vision for our country.

The most frightening fact is that this incompetent whiner has intentionally surrounded himself with those whose vision for destroying democracy perfectly coincides with his. From Jeff Sessions to Betsy DeVos, his Cabinet is filled with those antagonistic to the very departments they supposedly lead.

The only picks that actually support the work of their department are those of the Department of Defense and other military postings. But then, this makes sense as all dictators want the strongest military they can afford. That’s what keeps them in power.

#BLOTUS cannot compromise. He cannot negotiate. He cannot get legislation passed. Actually, he would be happy to rule by divine decree.

The question I have, and that is rightfully being raised by many others, is where will the fascination and admiration that #BLOTUS has of the world’s worst dictators lead us? His desire to be a brutal strongman is obvious.  Is his vision for the US to transform our democracy into a Trumptatorship?

The very real and very frightening reality here is that this is our circus, and these are all our monkeys.
