Well, isn’t it cute, how Trump has the whole nation in a tizzy? It irks me to see how complacent we all are, assuming that we, the Great Shining City On the Hill, the Manifest Destiny, the Chosen Ones, etc., are impervious to harm, invincible, right and undefeatable.
This is all utter nonsense. We are most definitely defeat-able, and right now we’re doing it to ourselves. What we have here is a President who doesn’t know a thing about history, about international diplomacy, and he’s going to fix everything by “acting crazy.” Ohhhh boy…..
Impressed with our own brilliance, and unsullied by the grave dangers that actually could result by having a lunatic at the helm of our national vessel, we just twitter around on social media, amused by it all. We just put a smiley face on this outrageous curse of Trump and go on. Don’t vote, just watch TV and shut up. Go get a case of Lone Star and go to the Lake. Let God handle it. Let the Government figure it out. You’ve heard people say all these things. Maybe you’ve even said them yourself.
But then, I saw this National Enquirer at the HEB as I was getting my weekly box of wine. I kind of threw up in my mouth a little bit, (as I usually do now-days when reminded that it’s really true that Trump is pretending to be president.) But, I decided to buy the 32 pages of professionally polished lies, misdirection and balderdash, to see just what kind of crazy was being parlayed this week.
I won’t go into detail about it, because it’s the same old malarkey. Go buy the paper or Google it if you want, but it won’t be surprising.
Now, the secret strategy is a bad strategy or even a new strategy as strategies go. It’s the kind of strategy that ended up with us winning the war against the Japs. But look how that turned out. About 250,000 people got vaporized. Nobody really knows the exact number, because that was the first time a nuke actually got dropped on a city and it was pretty scary. The eggheads couldn’t even guarantee Pres. Truman that it wouldn’t just keep exploding in a chain reaction until the entire world disappeared. (this may still come true, by the way.)
But, the generals convinced Truman to drop it anyway. “What have you got to lose?” (Sound familiar?)
That’s Truman. He listened to his advisers, who told him this would be the best way to go because the Japs would kill a lot more people if we invaded.
Now, the unintended consequences are that a “nuclear arms race” got started, and now we have enough of these dangerous toys to really kill everything on Earth about 10 times over, much quicker and more efficiently than the punky little Hiroshima bomb, with the push of a button. Now we have 9 countries with upwards of 19,000 nuclear weapons, all rotting in their silos, waiting to be shot off as the last dying defiant addition to the obliteration of the world. Now we’ve got this new kid on the block who wants to join the club, Kim Jong Un. But this country is so off the chain they appear to be crazier than the Nazis. Kim Jong Un has a tenuous grasp on reality. He actually has his entire population of over 25 million humans pretending to believe that he is a DIETY. What they really want to do is get as far away from him as possible, but he kills them if they try to leave. So, they just goose step along and cry real tears and make all the proper noises to keep from being murdered or locked up in prison. It’s the old game of totalitarianism. Never works. Always fails. But the “rise” to power is always trippy and exhilarating if you’re the one calling the shots. And, it’s always very messy when sane people finally get up the courage to eradicate the insanity.
The active policy that the U.S and all the members of the nuclear club operate under is called Mutually Assured Destruction (with the appropriate acronym MAD.) Essentially, it says that once the nukes start flying, all sides just shoot off everything like the 4th of July and everybody dies. A true chain reaction. But NOT NUCLEAR: HUMAN.
And there’s your holocaust. There’s your great revelation. The end of the world. The Rapture? Probably not. Because THIS WILL ALL BE CREATED BY MEN ON EARTH BEHAVING BY LUNATICS. Not God.
So Trump’s big plan is to act crazy and scare the world into playing nice? This is a dangerous and ridiculous game. And, it’s a complete fantasy. In fact, I pretty much “revealed” the same plan, as SATIRE on my website, StankenRoseGazette.com about 3 months before Trump stumbled onto the throne in DC. I have been predicting what’s next, just for fun, through the fictitious eyes of Garrulous O. Fart, investigative reporter, all along. Go to the link above and work your way up from their first meeting. I made it all up. But now, I see The National Enquirer claiming that these super-secret meetings are occurring and there’s a big plan.
Well, this is Brietbart news at its best: weaving a web of lies and actually trying to get people to believe it’s true. No wonder my blood pressure is through the roof! (note: the difference between “satire” and “fake news” is that “fake news” intends to deceive. Satire intends to remove the scales from people’s eyes, through the magic of laughter. I state clearly at the beginning and end of every post that it is satire: THIS IS A WORK OF SATIRE…blahblahblah. You won’t see that in the National Enquirer or Breitbart News, or Alex Jones here in Texas, admitting they are just doing this for fun. Its pretty funny how Alex Jones, faced with the loss of custody of his children, panicked and suddenly claimed that he was just an actor, not a crazy person spouting off insane conspiracy theories with no basis in fact. He told the judge that he was “just acting,” to retain custody of his children. Surprisingly, the judge didn’t buy it. He rants and rants daily and his children and family are afraid of him because they know he’s a lunatic. They want to go live somewhere else. And Alex’s defence is that he’s just playing a part? Good luck, asshat.
Here’s the short, and dangerous truth:
Any political plan that has Trump as an integral part of it is bound to fail because Trump cannot control his own mouth. He has NO GAME. He’s just riffing, making it up as he goes along. The only reason he’s President is that for once in his privileged life, he listened to someone and did what they said. That person was his son in law Jared Kushner. This happened about 3 weeks before the election.
But Jared isn’t the president. Trump is, and he will not be anybody’s puppet for long. It’s not in his nature. Now, being an old codger myself of 66 years old, I can attest to the fact that when you get on up around this age, you just don’t like getting told what to do. Trump is 70. He’s always been rich and privileged. He’s always gotten anything he wanted by snapping his fingers. He thinks he’s the smartest guy on Earth and now he sits in the chair where the most powerful guy on Earth usually sits, so he now believes this gives him license to tell anybody to “shut up shut up shut up….”
However, this is not true. If he really understood how government in the U.S.A. worked, he would understand the checks and the balances, the three branches of government, ruling by consensus, the art of compromise. It’s called democracy, the government is a republic of states that use democracy as their goal. It’s imperfect, it’s a work in progress, but it’s the best system that mankind has come up with so far.
This is why we will lose any war with Trump at the helm. But, he’s an amateur at government, and nearly illiterate, and no student of history by any stretch of the imagination. So he’s not very good at government. How could he be?
It seems like this is just another TV show to Trump. But that’s just not true either, is it? There are some seriously crazy mo fo’s in this world. Some in Washington, some in Asia, North Korea or Russia. As soon as Kim Jong Un has a functioning ICBM with a nuclear warhead, he’s likely to shoot it off at US just for fun! He is not operating on any level of sanity, even though he went to college in Switzerland, and probably visited “The Great Satan,”( the U.S.A.) a few times as a happy go lucky under-grad.
If a President is going to play the game of brinksmanship like back in the old days of Truman or even “The Great Communicator,” Reagan, then you better have GAME. Sure, the Berlin Wall came down and we won a round by out creating the Russkies. But Trump ain’t no Reagan.
Sure, brinksmanship won WWII. But Trump ain’t no Roosevelt. Or Truman. Or Winston Churchill. He’s a poseur, who doesn’t know who he is. Trump has no game. Only petulance.
The last time there was a nuclear attack, it stopped at 2 bombs because that’s all the bombs there were. They even had cute names: “Little Boy” and “Fat Man.” In 2 separate drops, 3 days apart, 250,000 human beings ceased to exist. Very cute. (3 days? This is almost Biblical, right? No, it’s just Men doing what they do. You hit them. If they don’t stay down, you hit them again. It’s a good thing for the US that Japan surrendered after the 2nd bomb because that’s all we had. They didn’t know that, lucky for us.)
But now, there are 9 countries with nukes. Soon to be 10. It’s not going to work the same way. And nobody knows how it’s going to go down because it’s just theoretical at this point. I don’t know about you, but this is not the type of “diplomacy” that has any semblance of sanity in it. “Nuclear diplomacy” is based on insanity– (MAD) How could any result be sane? Impossible.
The government used to stencil “Loose Lips Sink Ships” on the walls of every factory and every spare billboard anywhere across the country back in the 1940’s, as we frantically converted tractor factories to bomb factories to defeat the evil thing that appeared in Germany and had a plan for earth that was unacceptable to anybody, once they realized how insane it was.
Hitler. A name that will never be rehabilitated on this Earth.
And I am NOT comparing Trump to Hitler. I’m saying that Trump vs. Hitler in the game of Earth would be NO GAME, GAME OVER, because Trump doesn’t know how to handle crazy people.
Now, where are we in 2017? We have a PRESIDENT who has a compulsive TWEETING disorder, blowing every possibility before it has a chance to turn good. He’s Breaking Bad, every time.
Trump IS predictable, which is the opposite of what this “9 step plan” depends on to work, as reported in National Enquirer. (really? Can anybody tell me with a straight face that anything in the National Enquirer is true?)
Trump IS predictable because he has all these buttons sticking out, which he brays about every time he gives a speech. He dares people to push these buttons, and they do, and the same thing happens every time: Trump takes the bait and tweets something childish and comes off as a fool. This knee jerk (reflex, reactive, automatic, etc., pick a word….) reaction is a bad thing to be saddled with, but it could be disastrous for the entire planet, if a person with such a weakness happens to be in the position that is regarded by many as the most powerful man on Earth.
There’s even a name for his condition, which I will once again pronounce. It’s in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM – 5) as a mental condition. I didn’t make this up. The condition is “disinhibition.”
According to WikiPedia, and the DSM – 5, “disinhibition,” in psychology, is defined as “a lack of restraint manifested in disregard for social conventions, impulsivity, and poor risk assessment. Disinhibition affects motor, instinctual, emotional, cognitive, and perceptual aspects with signs and symptoms similar to the diagnostic criteria for mania.”
So, by definition, Trump is insane. And it is the duty of all 3 branches of government to remove him from office immediately and get him the best treatment available.
Hello NSA? Are you reading this? Do what you are hired to do.
I wish this rant made me feel better, but it doesn’t. Because when I check in on CNN, or the Internet, or whatever, Trump is still going to be pretending to be President. And that is a very dangerous condition for the world to be at the effect of.
