First they said he could never win the republican nomination. Next they said that he could never actually win the election. Then they said he wouldn't really steal health care from 20 million Americans, that he would back down from the wall and the Muslim ban. After just 12 days in office Trump has proven all of "them" wrong as he continues to wreck havoc with every decree and proclamation.
We have already seen that Trump creates his own desired reality, with him firmly at the center of his own world. When we see what he has done, & promises to do next the old analogy of a bull in a china shop comes to mind. Of course he has ordered his people to muddy the waters as much as possible as he continues to ignore protocols that have been in place for many decades. So far I have only heard 2 people call this travesty what it really is; Bill Maher and Michael Moore who agree it is an American Coup D'etat. At this point less than two weeks since his inauguration I am wondering to myself when we are going to start taking Trump at his word, and impeach him before he launches the nukes he said he'd use?
This of course is not the first American Coup D'etat, the last one was 54 years ago when they assassinated JFK because he wanted to smash the
CIA. They smashed first, and the rest is just
revisionist history, like what Trump &
his gang of thieves are currently doing, trying to push back then re-write
history. This time it's a slow moving Corporate coup d'etat because they learned a little
from the last one. This time they put America
on the slow boil; just like you cook a lobster, hoping nobody would notice
until it was too late.
For any who may think the idea of Trump launching nukes is reactionary, you may not think so after hearing that Trump just put Iran "on notice" after they conducted a missile test last Sunday. Then there is Putin's renewed military ops in
Eastern Ukraine which may test Trump's Russia
connection. These are worrisome events
on any day, perhaps even more so if you consider how eager Trump is to distract from his setting up a fascist
regime in the peoples house. A little war
hawk action might be just the thing to rally folks around their
leader; it worked for W!
Trump is a cancerous growth on the soul of
America. If we take
action NOW by impeachment & imprisonment (treason) we may just give democracy the second chance it so
desperately needs. Leaving Trump in
office heralds the absolute death of democracy and the installation of fascist Nazi tyranny. Never forget that his first action as
president was to attempt to silence
all federal agencies, prohibiting them from speaking with either
congress or the media; and then introducing the Orwellian concept of "alternative
facts." Those are not the acts of a president, they
are the opening acts of a Trump dictatorship; and that simply cannot be allowed to fester further than it already
With virtually zero notice Trump ordered the immediate implementation of his Muslim ban & "extreme vetting" immigration policy. The result was almost instantaneous pandemonium at airports around the country and overseas, as families were split apart and even those having green cards were detained as enemies of the state. Meanwhile we are left to wonder why the ban did not include the countries which the 911 terrorists supposedly came from. That simply makes no sense at all.
The Muslim ban has generated massive protests in many countries around the world, and in American airports the very surreal sight of Muslims kneeling in prayer and Americans reassuring them with support! Trump was crying for a full week about how he wanted bigger crowds shouting his name; well now he has it.
It's not just we the people who are upset over the Muslim ban; Trump's state department is in dissent, which resulted in Trump telling acting Attorney General Sally Yates, "You're Fired." More than 1000 state department employees are in open rebellion against the Trump administration, all of them signing a letter of dissent.
While airports around the country were clogged with the chaos Trump caused, and protesters were filling the streets of cities all over the world: he was holding a family screening of "Finding Dory" in the white house. That kind of speaks for itself, and what it says is chilling indeed. We are all currently experiencing reality at the rate of several WTF's a minute!
Veterans groups have publicly denounced Trump's Muslim ban, calling it "Flat out shameful and un-American." Being a veteran myself I can tell you from first hand experience that Trump in the white house has seriously jump-started my own struggle with PTSD. An awful lot of progress I thought I'd made has just been wiped away by this Nazi loving tyrant becoming president. Hyper-vigilance has resurfaced after many years of being dormant. My sleep cycle has been destroyed, and when I do manage to sleep, some of the old nightmares have returned; along with a whole rash of new ones with Trump's face on them. If Trump isn't removed from office it's gonna be PTSD and not health care for everyone, and we'll all be living life one nightmare at a time. I sure picked one hell of a time to quit smoking!
Trump has issued no fewer than 20 executive orders in his first 10 days on the job. At this rate it should only take a few weeks to fully install the fourth Reich. He also just gave white supremacist chief advisor Steve Bannon a permanent seat on the security council; which is just an insult to democracy. The democrats in congress have drafted a strongly worded letter of disapproval over installing a unqualified hack like Bannon, insisting that Trump reverse his decision immediately. The problem is that Bannon owns Breitbart news which is the website of the alt-right cadre.
For crying out loud Bannon is just another internet troll like Trump. Bannon has exactly zero government experience. Bannon is not an attorney. He has no experience whatsoever with international foreign policy, and therefore does not deserve any level of security clearance and could most easily pass state secrets and info to our enemies, and the same goes for Trump. Neither of these men have a shred of decency or integrity between them, and they both have to go, by any means necessary, and as soon a possible. In exactly the same way that Dick the prick Cheney was Bush's brain; so too Bannon is Trumps brain; and mad max showed us why they must be separated.
An equally huge insult is Trump's running the government like a reality TV show with the supreme court appointment of Neil Gorsuch to replace late ultra conservative Antonin Scalia; advertised like a prime time special instead of a daytime press release. Trump desperately needs the distraction from the Muslim ban mess he started but the Gorsuch confirmation hearings threaten to drag on towards historic lengths due to all the routine petty in-fighting in the capitol. Democrats are considering this a stolen seat because of the republican ten month long filibuster which denied Merrick Garland, Obama's choice for the supreme court. Business as usual, but with a newborn dictator in the oval office.
Another of those 20 decrees is the un-American and un-ethical, denying of funding to Sanctuary cities.
Francisco and several other cities are taking legal
action and suing the Trump administration in court to keep the much needed
funding in place. What this man and his
gang of plunder monkeys are doing is an abomination to all that this country
was founded on. What about the idea that
America is the
great melting pot, a crucible which
makes us stronger by adding our skills to a common cause, a goal, yes, a
dream. Better yet what about those words
displayed so proudly on the statue of liberty:
"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free"
Both Microsoft and Amazon have joined a lawsuit to stop this illegal Muslim ban. The Trump administration continues to fall back upon "alternative facts" with Trump & Spicer calling it a ban; at the same time others are saying it isn't a ban. Their insistence that both "facts" are true would be hilarious if it wasn't playing out right in front of our eyes. This level of malfeasance is nothing but intentional incompetence! We will very soon be at the point where civil suits against this administration will equal the number of official state proclamations.
We must never normalize this fascist, racist, misogynist Trump. NO!~ not ever. We the people need to throw it right back in his face, impeach him, imprison him, and make him pay for it. In his first 12 days he acts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, invokes an immigration freeze and illegal ban on Muslims, and orders the wall begun; then slaps a gag order on federal agencies barring them from speaking to the press. Can a decree giving Trump control over the internet be far behind? Not only does this delusional despot dream up his own reality on the fly, he seems very intent upon silencing all voices but his. That ain't a democracy folks, it's a dictatorship. Simple as that.
The democrats meanwhile, are doing a fine job of foot dragging thru the confirmation process of Trump's cabinet appointees. They simply don't have the votes to block or deny any of the appointees (without help from renegade republicans) but they can obfuscate, delay and in general dick around exactly how the republicans did to Obama for 8 years and in so doing prove that the system is indeed NOT broken, but rather designed & upgraded to operate exactly how it does. Insiders in Trump's white house have let it be known that the new fuhrer is furious over this delaying tactic. Good, now he knows how people feel about the on-going delay in releasing his taxes.
"This president is going down such a far wrong-headed path.
These executive orders they are really off the chart,
and this most recent one, the Muslim ban...
It is just astonishing that we would have a president of the United States
enact an order within a week of becoming president;
that is so fundamentally at the core un-American, immoral, un-constitutional."
~ Anthony Romero~ Executive Director ACLU
The very speed at which Trump is attempting to move, wiping out things he dislikes with a broad sweeping blitzkrieg campaign worries me more than just a little, and it should damn well worry you as well. He is piling up so much negative feedback so quickly that instead of pulling some trite diversion he may just need a convenient false flag event on American soil with which to consolidate his authority and control. Again taking a page from the Hitler playbook; think Reichstag fire.
Here's the thing about letting a dictator into your government: it's a lot like that old Arab story about the camel in the tent. Before long there is only room for the dictator. If nobody stops the newly installed dictator, he becomes emboldened & he makes a few more even more draconian decrees and before too long you have to be careful what you say about Trump; but oh wait...Kellyanne Conway has already warned us about that exact thing, imagine that!!
Donald Trump is not going about the business of making
great again, he is destroying the foundation of what America
is supposed to be one executive order
at a time. He attempts to silence free
speech within his own administration, and his own people want us to accept
their Orwellian "alternative facts" yet when Spicer or Ryan get a
question they don't like, they just run away like cowards. Motivated by petty revenge and a malignant,
narcissistic ego; Trump is seeking to erase any good Obama might have managed to
do...all because of being proven "wrong" on the whole
"birther" distraction. Trump has repeatedly shown himself to be a
weak, vindictive bully who's real war isn't with the media, its with reality.
It is my sincere hope that there are still some real Americans left in the system who will stand for decency and what is moral; & stand up to Trump and his plunder monkeys. To be sure, they pretty much all have to go; all of Trump's advisors, enablers and handlers are gonna have to get the heave-ho along with the orange one and his children. We may get stuck with a President Pence, but just maybe we can deal with that far easier than 4 years of Caligula.
"The presidency is supposed to age the president, not the population"
There are already several groups attempting to organize impeachment proceedings on their websites. Rather than single any one of them out as worthy of support I simply add my own voice to the growing chant of "Impeach Trump Now." Certainly this is history in the making as no former president has ever so richly deserved impeachment this soon after taking office. Trump is guilty of several impeachable offenses in addition to conspiring with the Russians to hack the election results; for which he deserves no less than a quick trial followed by immediate incarceration at Gitmo as an enemy of the state. Can't help the attitude folks, as I said, I am a veteran and I take treason very seriously. You should too.
Today Trump's approval slipped below 43% which is historically significant because he exceeded 50% disapproval rating faster and biglier than anyone before him in recent memory. It took Trump just 7 days to hit 50% disapproval. It took Obama 580 days to reach this mark, Bill Clinton took 152 days; whereas GW Bush took 1200 days to be so widely despised because he rode the sympathy wave of 911 until that wore off because people began seeing him for what he was.
With so much dissent building so quickly against the Trump regime; I am wondering how long before we see North Korean style proclamations that Trump's approval rating is 100% because everybody in the country loves their perfect leader. I imagine it will come very quickly if he is permitted to evict the press corps from the white house, because there will be a need to silence all opposition, and the day we allow him to do that is the day we will have lost our country.
We the People need to shake off our habitual shackles of perception and see the crystal clear truth; which is our nations government has been compromised by an unholy alliance of racist, fascist zealots who will not stop until their Nazi agenda is fulfilled by
becoming the fourth Reich. That is why We the
People must either stop them in their tracks right now, or loose this country forever. It may already be too late.
