It’s time to stop getting your knickers in a twist over Donald Trump. To be sure, he is dangerous, unhinged and his childish, insulting and whiny antics are an embarrassment to the US. Did I mention his mad tweets?
The ones to get your knickers in a twist over are the ones in the deep state, a.k.a the power elite, and Congress.
Trump will last as long as the spotlight is on all the things he is determined to dismantle while Congress takes a wrecking ball to the whole system at the behest of its deep state masters.
In the meantime, Trump, a man who learned little is school, knows nothing of the US Constitution, has a limited vocabulary, and can’t stand any criticism, is meant to serve as a source of humor and angst. Once Congress has passed the legislation its masters want and Trump signs the bills into law, he will be gone, one way or another.
Whether he is impeached and convicted, removed via the 25th Amendment or some other way—any of which would prove another great distraction, opening the way for more nefarious deeds to do away with any liberties that might still be left—the extreme right-wing and religious fanatic Vice President Mike Pence will become president or, under the 25th Amendment, acting president. Think about that for awhile.
Trump is bad but Pence is worse and more dangerous. He is the deep state’s and Christian extremists’ man. Moreover, if Pence’s handlers give him the word, he can invoke the 25th Amendment and you can bank on a majority of the neocons in Trump’s cabinet and the Republican Congress supporting him, thusly making him acting president.
Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert and SNL get comedy mileage out of Trump’s missteps and lunacy, while aiding the Russia bashers in the bargain. And when the major, independent and alternative media aren’t beating on Russia, they prattle on about democracy. What democracy? We don’t have democracy. We have a plutocracy, a.k.a. the deep state, a.k.a. the power elite.
Be careful what you wish for.
