With the installation of Donald Trump as president, one has to look far and wide to find something to feel proud about in the first six months of his administration. Russiagate is alive and well with his son and son-in-law deeply involved in conspiring with Russia to obtain dirt on Hillary Clinton. Beneath the surface is the reality that Russia "owns" Trump and his family because the Trumps need Russian money for their faltering business empire. Hence, they are Russia's pawns in the White House to accomplish Russia's goals of destabilizing the West.
Add to that, Trump is enriching himself at the expense of taxpayers, trade licensing deals with China, Turkey, and others. He and his daughter operate a string of sweatshops in Asia to manufacture overpriced baubles for the suckers infatuated with Trump. Trump even has the nerve to promote "Made in America" month when he makes nothing in America nor hire Americans to work at his "plantations".
He has placed the lowest form of humans in his Cabinet to act as corporate America's first line of defense against regulations to guarantee clean air, water, and the environment. His financial advisers and Treasure and Commerce secretaries are enacting deleting rules or delaying rules which guarantee Americans are not robbed by Wall Street and the major banks. His education secretary, Betty DeVos is an open racist, Rick Perry, a fool, and his nominee for the head of the FBI is linked to Russia (read FBI Nominee Christopher Wray Sure Looks Dirty).
On the international scene, Trump is, according to Al Gore: Trump is first president to deliberately ‘tear down America’s standing in the world’. As if this were not enough, Trump is kissing Saudi Arabia's ass in the hopes of securing deals which will benefit his bottom-line. In addition, he has openly supported tyrants in the Philippines, Turkey, and Israel. While Trump's military has killed more civilians in Syria in six months than the two previous presidents.
So endure the next fifteen months since I think it will take Mueller that long to get this piece of sleaze out of the Oval Office.
Comments to think about.
