A useful idiot or a Russian spy?
Either way, the man is the real “enemy of the State.”
Remember when we would call him “Putin’s Puppet” and folks would dismiss us as radical wackos?
Well, here we are. The cat is out of the bag. The FBI – the FBI; let that sink in! – at one point considered the President of the United States an agent of a foreign country. Either this allegation is indisputably dismissed or we are in catastrophic times… And this is saying nothing of the Mueller investigation which has yet to conclude.
Trump’s consistent and unequivocal nod to Putin coupled with his seemingly hell-bent efforts to discredit every major American institution and the intentional disruption of traditional governance structures is clear proof he is not about making America great again but rather making Donald Trump an international mafioso.
Does any doubt remain that this man has no interest whatsoever in working for the common person, advancing social good, or even creating an economy that works for most people? Can anyone doubt that this man has no inclination to bring the country together or be President for anyone other than those who see him as a saviour for the dwindling white nationalists, those who are exclusively interested in the single issues of anti-abortion, judicial power, and wealth welfare for the uber rich – or those that hate Obama?
Let’s keep the eye on the prize. This man has to be made totally ineffective. We have to find ways to work around him. And he has to be out of there as soon as practical – but certainly no later than November 2020. He may have his cronies that will go to all lengths to use him for their self interest. There will always be that third of America welcoming a “strong man that tells it like it is” – though he is obviouly playing them to a hilt. And, there will always be those more afraid of change and the Democrats than whatever totalitarian and authoritative measures he may take – including possibly publicly aligning himself with Putin and Russia.
But, these cronies, frightened electorate, and supporters of a dictatorship know that there is one irrevocable power we have: The vote.
In the days, weeks, and months to come expect more draconian, outlandish – and illegal – acts by Trump. He is in desperation mode. Putin is pulling all the strings so tight that he may choke… But only so Pence can come in and look like the clean knight in a shining armor. And run in 2020… Stay tuned.
(I did write something that foreshadowed this a while back, “Putin’s Puppet“.)
