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.

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.

1-Year-Old Baby Appears In Immigration Court, Cries Hysterically

Here’s Trump’s America for you:

A 1-year-old boy in federal custody who appeared in immigration court without his parents in Phoenix briefly played with a ball, drank from a bottle, then “cried hysterically” as he was about to leave the courtroom Friday, according to The Associated Press.

How did the hearing go for the lad?

The little boy, identified in court only as Johan, was one of the children who appeared in the Arizona court Friday without parents. One boy held up five fingers when the judge asked him his age.

Judge John Richardson said he was “embarrassed to ask” if Johan understood the proceedings, AP reported. “I don’t know who you would explain it to, unless you think that a 1-year-old could learn immigration law,” he told Johan’s attorney.

This will teach these damn baby illegals!

“There are no booster seats … no teddy bears. It’s a cold immigration court, and these kids are sitting in chairs that are too big for them; their feet don’t even touch the floor,” immigration attorney Lindsay Toczlowski told CNN last month.

Rudy Giuliani’s Leaks and Lies

Rudy became a part of the Trump team in April 2018, and said he would have the Russia investigation wrapped up in “2 weeks.”  That was 2 months ago.  Then he said Trump would be interviewed by Mueller no later than July 4.  That day has come and gone.  Rudy has also now been pretty silent after spending weeks on TV losing his mind and acting like a crazy person while he tried to protect Trump.

Where did Giuliani go?

Looks like Rudy has his own legal troubles now and may himself be under investigation for his involvement in FBI leaks that were used to attack Hillary Clinton during the election.  The Trump trash have accused the FBI of being a “deep state” conspiracy against him.  It looks more like there were members of the FBI who were working to help Trump during the election, and to successfully politically damage Hillary.

Remember back right before the election:

Rudolph W. Giuliani was dying to show the country that he remained in the loop. “I mean, I’m talking about some pretty big surprises,” he said on Fox News on Oct. 26, 2016. On an earlier Fox News program, he said, “I do think that all of these revelations about Hillary Clinton finally are beginning to have an impact. He’s got a surprise or two that you’re going to hear about in the next two days.”

That’s strange, how would Rudy have access to an ongoing FBI investigation and know what was going to happen in the next few days unless somebody leaked it to him?  And of course, it had to do with hurting Hillary and helping Trump.

Then this happened:

On Oct. 28, 2016, then-FBI Director James B. Comey signaled that he was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails — a momentous event that may have handed the presidency to Donald Trump and is the subject of much chatter on Comey’s ongoing tour for his new book.

Wow, Rudy knew what was coming?  Or did he make the statement to put pressure on Comey to reopen the BS Hillary investigation right before the election?  Who would such a leak come from?

“There is a renegade quality to the New York F.B.I.,” says a former prosecutor, which, he claims, can take the form of agents leaking to the press to advance their own interests or to influence an investigation. “New York leaks like a sieve,” concurs another former prosecutor.

Could it be that an FBI agent leaked damaging Hillary information to a Trump flunky (Giuliani) and then two days later Comey reopened the Hillary investigation due to pressure from that leak? That might warrant further investigation…

FBI Director James Comey confirmed Wednesday that the FBI is conducting an internal investigation into whether agents leaked information to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and others about the probe into Hillary Clinton during the presidential campaign.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago, Giuliani was running his mouth about Trump and how the Russia investigation would get wrapped up.  Then all of the sudden he shut his mouth and has not really opened it since.  Is Giuliani scared of something?  What could he be scared of?

According to the recent information released about the inspector general’s investigation of the FBI’s actions:

Although Comey told us that he “didn’t make this decision because [he] thought it would leak otherwise,” several FBI officials told us that the concern about leaks played a role in the decision.

Is Giuliani getting scared?  That would explain him disappearing.

 

The Conservative Trump Bashers

Since Trump’s election, arguably the most effective political opponents he has faced are the conservative “establishment” republicans who routinely rip him to shreds on twitter.

There is John Schindler, a former NSA analyst:

Then there is Rick Wilson, who had his daughter threatened with rape from the “civil” Trump crowd during the election season:

And we have Steve Schmidt, who recently announced he is leaving the GOP, after having managed many high profile GOP campaigns, some with much success.

It is a sad commentary on liberals, progressives and establishment democrats that the most effective critics of Trump so far have been right-wing pundits and strategists.  While it’s been fun to watch the conservatives eat their own and see them savage Trump, people on the left tend to forget that the conservative Trump critics are conservatives.  They don’t agree with you, they didn’t like Obama, they want a right-wing radical on the supreme court, they don’t want Medicare for all, they don’t want more social services, because they are conservatives.

People on the left forget this and instead get their feelings hurt when their conservative political brothers in arms against Trump turn their fire to the left.  Don’t be.  Take a lesson from their effective attacks, but ignore all their garbage when they attack democrats and liberals.  The left has to come up with its own agenda, it’s own alternative vision for the country.  And while we can rely on conservatives Trump critics to attack Trump, they can’t be relied upon for advice on how democrats win or what democrats should stand for.

Take a page from Bernie Sanders and other liberals, and realize that you have to present a clear vision for the future of this country to get voters to buy in and support you.  You don’t have to be a socialist, but you do have to tell voters what you want to do if you are elected.  Being I’m not Trump is not good enough.

With the latest primary win by a democrat socialist, it’s confirmed.  She did not win because she is a socialist, she won because she was very specific on what she wanted to accomplish: impeach trump, medicare for all, college for all.  Her democratic establishment opponent (who himself is fairly liberal) didn’t even bother to show up for a debate and offered no clear plan (just like Hillary never bothered to show up at mid-west states she needed to win and never bothered to tell American voters specifically what she wanted to do as a leader).

Still don’t get what I’m saying?  Tell me three specific goals Hillary Clinton said she wanted to accomplish if elected president . . . if you’re like me you probably can’t even come up with one, even though you voted for her.  The only thing that comes to mind immediately is “not Trump.”

Now tell me three specific things Trump was for?  The Wall.  Mexico pays for it.  Fight China.

If the democrats can’t get their messaging straight and only take the position that they are not Trump and rely on conservatives to do the effective political attacks against Trump, then the democratic party doesn’t have much of a future.  The republicans play for keeps, they are willing to violate the constitution to ensure they get a Trump flunky appointed to the supreme court, prevent people from voting, and refuse to say one bad word against Trump.  But you know exactly what they stand for because they repeat it over and over again until you memorize it like a catchy commercial.  They want to win, whatever the cost.

Democrats don’t need to play dirty, but they need to start making sure people know by heart what the party stands for and they need to start playing tough and act like they actually want to win because they have something they actually want to accomplish beyond “I’m not Trump.”

 

North Korean Summit: Another Trump Failure

Experts said we needed to see action to dismantle North Korea’s nuclear arms within three weeks of Trump’s big kissy kissy meeting with the murderous North Korean dictator a few weeks ago.  Well, we are starting to see action, but it’s not the kind we were expecting.  Another Trump beauty:

North Korea is upgrading its only known nuclear research facility, satellite imagery has shown, despite ongoing negotiations with multiple world leaders and a pledge to abandon its weapons program.

The satellite photos, obtained by North Korea analysis outlet 38 North, indicate that the isolated regime is making numerous improvements to its Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center “at a rapid pace.”
