Agitate, Educate, and Organize ~OO~
We have a racist in the White House.
This is not “name-calling.”
Trumps’ racism and prejudice are deliberate.
Donald, like an underdeveloped juvenile delinquent on steroids, denigrates people of color, Mexicans, Muslims, women and those who are unemployed or disabled.
This prejudiced man, tweeting like an adolescent drama queen, does not represent America. He speaks only for himself and does not even represent the 18% he was able to fool into voting for him. 82% of the American people are not OK with racism, bigotry, militarism, misogyny and hate. But racism reigns supreme in our imperial plutocracy. This is an oligarchy where democracy, habeas corpus, civil rights and human rights have been suspended.
A coup is unlikely, but there have been rumors.
“Trump isn’t subtle or sophisticated: He sets policy through rants and late-night tweets, not through quiet hints to aides and lawyers. He’s thin-skinned, erratic, and unconstrained — and his unexpected, self-indulgent pronouncements are reportedly sending shivers through even his closest aides.
What would top U.S. military leaders do if given an order that struck them as not merely ill-advised, but dangerously unhinged?”
Trump’s parsimonious attacks on the CIA may be seen as the show-boating they were… or the Pentagon and the CIA may take his hubris more seriously.
Opinions vary about impeachment. Obama was ripe for impeachment in murdering Americans without due process of law and dozens of wars of choice, but he was a pretty slick talker. But in the long run, Obama served the same interests Trump now represents: munitions firms, profiteers, billionaires, bankers and international insurance cartels.
Trump will likely serve 4 years. And unless responsible journalists do a better job, the American people may be stuck with Trump’s fear-mongering and lies for 8 grueling years. Let’s hope not.
Regardless, expanding wars of aggression will continue to consume us. And push will come to shove. But Don Trump’s organized crime connections may keep him in office for 8 years in any case.
“No other candidate for the White House (had) anything close to Trump’s record of repeated social and business dealings with mobsters, swindlers, and other crooks.
Professor Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian, said the closest historical example would be President Warren G. Harding and Teapot Dome, a bribery and bid-rigging scandal in which the interior secretary went to prison. But even that has a key difference: Harding’s associates were corrupt but otherwise legitimate businessmen, not mobsters and drug dealers.”
“Trump’s mentor on issues of politics and business was Roy Cohn,
a lawyer whose other clients included a passel of mobsters, among them the bosses of the Genovese and Gambino crime families,” wrote Robbins.
