Donald Trump is not a Traitor and is not “Dangerous”

Is Donald Trump a racist?  Yes.  Is Donald Trump a sexist?  Yes.  Is Donald Trump an idiot who can’t keep his bullshit straight?  Yes.  Is he a failed business man?  Yes.  Is he actively violating the constitution?  Yes.  But is Donald Trump a traitor?  NO.  Is Donald Trump “Dangerous”?  NO.

After Donald Trump’s thorough ass kissing and boot licking of Putin on Monday, as well as his repeated statements trashing his own country on foreign soil, Trump’s critics have taken to calling him “dangerous” and a traitor.  The reality is he is neither.

For what is a traitor? Article 3, section 3 of the Constitution gives us the definition:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

Has Donald Trump levied war against the United States?  No.  Is Donald Trump giving aid and comfort to enemies of the United States?  No.  Is he giving aid and comfort to an adversary or competitor of the United States?  Sure, by trashing our country and kissing up to the murderous Russian dictator and protecting Russia, he is giving aid to Russia, a foreign power.  But we are not at war with Russia, and Russia is not our enemy.  To throw around a word like “traitor” without evidence or proof waters it down and turns it into nothing but another partisan soundbite.

In 2003, President George W Bush started a war in Iraq that lead to the deaths of 4,000+ American military personnel, the wounding and maiming of thousands more, the deaths of 200,000+ Iraqis, including thousands of innocent people, and cost trillions of dollars.  The war was based on a pure manufactured and intentional lie of WMDs, and has led to Iran extending its influence into Iraq and the creation of ISIS. That was dangerous.  That got people killed and all for an evil lie of WMDs.

What dangerous activity has Trump engaged in?  He had a useless meeting with a fat little slovenly dictator in North Korea and turned himself into a clown by saluting a North Korean military officer.  He turned himself into a clown in front of our allies.  He showed himself to be a brown-nosing kiss-ass to Putin and is probably on Putin’s payroll.  But is any of that going to lead to the deaths of thousands of Americans?

Some may say fine, Trump has not engaged in treason or dangerous activity, but he is evil. What evil has Trump engaged in?  He has put thousands of children in cages at the border and separated them from their parents for no reason other than to scare people away from lawfully claiming asylum or trying to come to the United States.  That is, without a doubt, evil.  He uses his office to enrich himself and his family.  That is corrupt and evil.  But it pales in comparison to the evils committed by Bush.  Trump is an incompetent president, but he is better than Bush and less evil than Bush.

What Trump has done with Russia is corrupt and embarrassment.  And his corruption and lies will be exposed for what they are–a part of a Trump scam where he is being paid off by Russia (and maybe China) to put in place policies that harm the United States’ national interest to Russia’s (and maybe China’s) benefit.  Impeachable, if true?  Yes.  Criminal if true? Probably.

Treasonous? No.

Trump Supporters Don’t Care that Trump is Putin’s Servant

After witnessing Trump slobber all over Putin’s manhood yesterday during the press conference, while at the same time trashing his own country, many people, including myself once again returned to the question: will this be enough to convince Trump supporters?  The answer is no, it will never be enough.  Most people already know that, but not too many people can answer the follow up question, why won’t Trump supporters admit reality?

You have to understand that there are only two kinds of Trump supporters:  racist fanatics (including closet racists who pretend not to be or have a pretext for being racist), and conservatives who will support a racist if it means they will get a right-wing supreme court and right-wing laws pushed through under Trump.

There is arguably a third category of Trump supporters, but those people have long abandoned Tump.  These were the people fed up with our supposedly “booming” economy, union blue collar folks who have been told that globalization and China’s gutting of our industrial jobs sector is a “good thing” by the “smart people” in the Democratic and Republican parties.  But these people have now seen through Trump’s fraud and lies and know he’s not really there to help them or to protect their jobs.

The first category, the racists, don’t care if Trump bows down to Putin.  To them, the U.S. is a multicultural toilet and is quickly going down the drain due to all of the ‘poor ignorant people’ from shithole countries coming here and mixing in with white people and watering down our white values and religion.

The second category of “conservative at any cost” is pretty self explanatory–the ends justify the means.

But perhaps you are now wondering, how could even racist Americans (or closet racists) support a guy that is Putin’s clear bitch and who trashes his own country?  Well this is where you need to go talk to them, as I did the other day.  I received a full explanation of how the FBI conducted the mass murder of nearly 60 people at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas last year in order to take away people’s gun rights.  This is what they really, truly believe.

So if you are a racist and see white man and fellow racist Trump standing up next to a mass murdering white man, Putin, who will you trust?  You’re multicultural country that just recently elected a black guy president, with an FBI that murders dozens of people to take away guns, or Trump?

This is the reality these people are living in, it is a delusional racist fantasy world, and they will not see facts or evidence.  They will only see hate.  You can never win over a Trump supporter.  Don’t ever try.  But you sure can learn what drives their insane, delusional, fact and and evidence free racist fantasies.

Suspect Dead, Three Kansas City Police Officers Shot

The dead suspect was being chased by cops because he allegedly killed a college student.  He exchanged gunfire with cops three times before he was killed.  Good riddance:

The harrowing events began just before noon at the Sky-Vu Motel on U.S. 40 and ended an hour later when the man came out of a house at 30th and Topping Avenue. All told, the suspect and police exchanged gunfire three different times.

 

NYC Has Its Own Ant, the “ManhattAnt”

Did you know?

Biologists stumbled upon a new species of ant in the Broadway medians at 63rd and 76th streets, the New York Post reports. The ant looks like it hails from Europe, but so far the scientists have not been able to match it with any of the approximately 13,000 species of known ant. “It’s new to North America, and we believe it’s new to the entire world,” biologist Rob Dunn, whose team discovered the insect, told the Post. The ant doesn’t have a scientific name yet, but it’s fondly nicknamed the “ManhattAnt.”

Beto-mania Sweeps Texas

Beto O’Rourke is running to replace Republican misanthrope Ted Cruz.  Is it that Texans are crazy for Beto, or is it just that everyone hates Ted Cruz?

Former Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner:

[He’s] Lucifer in the flesh. I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

Former Democrat Senator Al Franken:

You have to understand that I like Ted Cruz probably more than my colleagues like Ted Cruz, and I hate Ted Cruz.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham:

If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you

I’ll let you guess who said this one:

☝️ The truth is, [Ted]’s a nasty guy. 👌 He was so nice to me. 👐 I mean, I knew it. 👋 I was watching. ☝️ I kept saying, ‘Come on Ted. Let’s go, okay.’ 👌 But he’s a nasty guy. 🖐️ Nobody likes him. Nobody in Congress likes him. 👐 Nobody likes him anywhere once they get to know him. He’s a very – 👌 he’s got an edge that’s not good. 👐 You can’t make deals with people like that and it’s not a good thing. ☝️ It’s not a good thing for the country. 👌 Very nasty guy.
