#BLOTUS and his Flying Monkeys

Earlier this morning I read that Robert Mueller’s team has added over a dozen new attorneys to help dig deeper into the malfeasance and corruption at the heart of Trump’s circle. Now, the president’s personal lawyer, following the wise move of Vice President Pence, has hired another lawyer to represent him. When lawyers hire lawyers they know it is about to get real.

Trump is single-handedly attempting to kick-start the economy by providing more jobs for lawyers. I don’t care how many flying monkeys the #Blotus lets fly, the Hounds of Justice are coming after him, and he can feel them getting ever closer.

treason from within

I doubt that Cicero was warning our nation about the #BLOTUS. But, I have to admit that this statesman knew what he was talking about, and it’s just as obvious that his words should be heeded by the wise of any age.

There is no doubt in my mind that Trump appeals to”the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.” And one has only to look at his first few months in office to realize he works best in secret and at night.

The stench arising from the oval office continues to grow as the #BLOTUS rots the soul of our nation. ┬áTruly, “a murderer is less to be feared.”

no deals on the Day of Judgement

Kudos to the Dayton Daily News for Mr. Peters’ excellent cartoon of the #BLOTUS meeting with Pope Francis. The expression on the Pope’s face is an example of exceptionally true-to-life realism.

I admire Pope Francis as a authentic spiritual leader. He teaches and guides by example as did the man from Nazareth I attempt to follow. A good example is his gifting a copy of his letter on climate change to the #BLOTUS during their recent visit. (If only the President could read…)

What caught my attention, however, was the Pope’s expression during the visit. Normally smiling and laughing, the Pope just could not hide look of distaste (dare I say, disgust) during his time with the first family.

His true feelings for the President of the United States were plain for all to see. But, on the bright side,┬áhe didn’t openly laugh at the man as did several of the world leaders gathered at the NATO Summit.

The #BLOTUS might have written The Art of the Deal, but there’s no deals going to be made on the Day of Judgement. Maybe that will bring a smile to the Pope’s face. It certainly brings one to mine.

 

could there be a greater difference?

This is why I continue to be amazed, confused, and just totally dismayed by the huge numbers of those professing to follow Jesus that actually voted for the #BLOTUS and still support him. Anyone who is seeking to demonstrate the love of Christ, cannot possibly think that this man reflects anything other than the complete and total repudiation of all that Christ is and that He teaches.

The values of Drumpf are not Christian values. The #BLOTUS does not demonstrate any of the values taught by Jesus. Those ignoring these facts need to seriously reflect on just how shallow their spirituality must be to defend and support such a man.

SNAFU

I served 4 years (1966-1970) in the Marine Corps. While in the Marines I learned a phrase that has stuck with me. Actually, I think all veterans are familiar with it as the phrase is common in all branches of the military.

The phrase is SNAFU. It is an acronym for Situation Normal All F&%#ed Up.

This is where our nation is headed under the #BLOTUS. We are heading for a huge and historically ugly SNAFU. And I, for one, don’t want this period to be normal for the United States. I don’t want my country to be characterized by the arrogance, greed, and pathological lying of one man.

We cannot allow this administration to be normalized. It isn’t who we are. And I hope it isn’t who we want to become.
