LEAKER IN CHIEF

Wake up, USA!

The people of the USA are being played.  Yes, that is US.
We are being played by Donald J. Trump, he the reluctant(?) occupant of the "Real Dump" on the sunny shores of the Potomac.

He of the well remembered "I alone can fix it" boast included in the speech at the Republican Convention.
He who speaks of the Republican controlled legislative branch as "THEY."
He who threatens to punish the states represented by legislators who oppose his point of view with economic sanctions.
He who tells the people that they are being cheated out of the leadership of their choosing.  (West Virginia rally, August 3, 2017- from a teleprompter, no less.)
He who denigrates (seemingly) members of his own cabinet.
He who incessantly names the Media as the enemy of the government.
He who incessantly accuses the Intelligence and Security offices of the country with the leaking of sensitive information.
He who is so diligent about maintaining the flow of executive Orders is incapable of negotiating the passage of one single result of the legislative process.  YES not one, despite the fact that every co-equal branch of the USA government is controlled by the party to which he nominally belongs.
He, the "Dealer in Chief" has yet to produce the results of ONE single DEAL.

Why?

Because he is not a deal maker.  He is not.  Remember, deals are bi-lateral agreements.  Donald J. Trump is not a bi-laterally oriented give-and-take person.  Donald Trump is nothing but a zero-sum taker.  Donald Trump is, by his own admission, an "I win, you lose" human being.  The only good deal that Donald Trump has ever seen is the last one that he has signed.  One that describes him as the winner and the other side as the loser.  Every other agreement that exists and in which he did not participate is the "worst deal I have ever seen."

So, the "deal" now is the process of governing in the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America.  The reality here is the governing process that is spread out over several elements.  These constitute a reality that is sometimes called the "Great American Experiment.  The body politic here consists, among others, of a) the People; b) the Local Municipal Government; c) the State Government; d)the Federal Government, each and collectively organized around an Executive, a Legislative and a Judicial branch.  All of this give and take structure goes against Donald Trump's nature.  This chart goes beyond the managerial (governing) ability of Donald Trump.  Trump is not a governer, he is a commander who either wins or loses.  He does not live in a give and take world composed of varying degrees of success.  He either wins and goes on or takes revenge.  Losing is not an option...I take that back, compromise is not an option.

Therefore the conclusion to be drawn from the above is that what we have been seeing, and continue to see, is the preparation of the declaration that from this moment the commander in chief is the de facto leader of the country to the exclusion of all the "Deep State Leakers" who have but one goal, to undermine the authority of Donald Trump.  The hunt for the leakers need go no further than the West Wing itself.  The "leaks" are the foils that the Donald is using to prepare the way for the great announcement that the security of the country can only be assured by vesting the Commander in Chief with the authority and the power to "govern" and thereby "Make America Great Again."

Yes, fellow citizens, I have seen it happen elsewhere.  Do not close your eyes to the actions of Donald Trump and his minions.  Be wary; stay ready.  Follow the leaks...they all come from the same swamp.

TRANSGENDER PEOPLE BLEED RED TOO, DONALD

Image result for we all bleed red
Except if you're a homosexual or transgender military person getting shot at, bombed, captured and menaced in some God forsaken enemy territory for the sake of protecting the sorry excuse of the draft dodger, the current Commander-in-Chief quoted in the visual featured above.
Do you bleed red if you've had bone spurs?

RADICALIZED CHRISTIAN TERRORISTS = CRUSADERS?

Genesis: 21; 12 - 21
12 But God said to Abraham: Do not be distressed about the boy or about your slave woman. Obey Sarah, no matter what she asks of you; for it is through Isaac that descendants will bear your name. 13 As for the son of the slave woman, I will make a nation of him also, since he too is your offspring.
14  Early the next morning Abraham got some bread and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar. Then, placing the child on her back, he sent her away. As she roamed aimlessly in the wilderness of Beer-sheba,15 the water in the skin was used up. So she put the child down under one of the bushes,16 and then went and sat down opposite him, about a bowshot away; for she said to herself, “I cannot watch the child die.” As she sat opposite him, she wept aloud. 17 God heard the boy’s voice, and God’s angel called to Hagar from heaven: “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not fear; God has heard the boy’s voice in this plight of his. 18 Get up, lift up the boy and hold him by the hand; for I will make of him a great nation.” 19 Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. She went and filled the skin with water, and then let the boy drink.  20 God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the wilderness and became an expert bowman. 21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran. His mother got a wife for him from the land of Egypt.

No matter what you think, no matter what you say, no matter what you do, always remember that Ishmael is the son of Abraham and Muslims are the sons of Ishmael who received from God the promise of a great progeny.  Respect that.

Also remember that hatred begets hatred; hatred begets destruction. 
Love begets love; love begets life, peace and happiness.

Finally, remember also that there comes a time when we all stand before God our Creator and Father to hear the final decision concerning our relationship with Him and ALL His beloved children.  Remember stay ready.

Be watchful! Be alert! You do not know when the time will come. Mark, 13;33

Ban travel, limit refugee entry all the more, blame drug importation on illegal entry and ignore what comes through the front door, build a higher and better wall, deport, deport, deport, weaken already shoddy health care system, make a long list of promises that are impossible to keep, etc.

There are a great many radicalized American citizens in the USA who are working at radicalizing others while we alienate them all with inflammatory rhetoric. That is no way to win this "war."

Political savvy is about leading, not commanding and insulting; it is about well organized and controlled guidance and collaboration, not "I win, you lose" deal making. It is much more efficacious to learn and practice judicious use of political correctness than to accuse, threaten and castigate at every turn. Yes, governing is a skill that some have and others don't.

At this time we are suffering through a great drought of skilled governance. At this rate, American exceptionalism will be celebrated by the isolation of those who lost the art of collaborative co-governance in the world community of nations.

DEATH OF A COUNTRY, BIRTH OF AN EMPIRE, DONALD I




TO YOU WHO VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP

Sit back and witness the death throes of the democratic republic known as the United States of America.  Some of you voted for the one who promised to drain the swamp only to watch him populate it.  Others voted for the same one who promised to build a wall that a foreign country would pay for, only to hear him change his tune.  You voted for him despite his continued assertions that he admired Vladimir Putin.  You voted for him because he stated that he is pro-life only to sit back and see him destroy the lives of those who crossed his path.  You voted for him despite the fact that he has millions of dollars of debt that is being contested in the courts but does not stop him from delaring that he "loves debt."  You voted for him
despite the fact that he refused to open his tax returns.  You voted for him although he brags about the fact that he is smart because he knows how not to pay taxes.  You voted for him all the while knowing that he said that the president of the United States doesn't have any possible conflicts of interest.
You voted for him even as he constantly attacks the press and electronic media.You voted for him despite the fact that he disparages the intelligence apparatus of our government.  I could go on but the bottom line is this:

Donald Trump does care about the present structure of this country.  He does not care about its people.  He is bound and determined to do what he wants to do come what may.  No one will change his mind.  He will continue to attack one and all who do not see things the way that he does and tell him about it.  He is A DICTATOR IN HIS OWN MIND AND HE INTENDS TO DESTROY ANYONE WHO CHALLENGES THAT.

His saying that the USA will begin to spend for the construction of the wall is not a simple change of mind...it is a savage show of authoritarian force that shows that he can and will do anything that he wants.

Wake up, USA.
