Right now we are all being deliberately distracted while Trump runs around the While House with a fly swatter. He thrives on chaos, conflict and slight-of-hand.
We forgot about his ties with Russia and his choice to have the Miss universe contest in Moscow in 2013. We are told and therefore believe this was a “hands of the girls” event. Nothing seen. Nothing recorded.
“ President Trump blasts Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over a refugee agreement and boasted about the magnitude of his Electoral College win, according to senior U.S. officials briefed on the Saturday exchange” Tweets about the dumb agreement.
In the same breath and with the same vigor…
“President Trump opens his first appearance at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington with a prayer for the television ratings of the man who succeeded him as host of “The Apprentice.”
At the end of the day we must understand this fact for our very survival.
The only thing more dangerous than an unstable man with unlimited resources, wealth and power is and unstable man
with nothing to loose.
The NRA knows this as well but to prevent even the slightest restriction, they tell people how any new changes to the law would lead to Congress taking away any right to own a weapon. And so since most of our politicians are scared that the NRA would target them in the next election if they vote for any restrictions, they do not vote for what they know is the right thing to do. So, when i see Paul Ryan, I see
nothing but that type of politician. A politician that will say and do almost anything to survive. What kind of politician will choose to work in conjunction with a person like Trump to get things done that they want done even though they know that the actions of Trump from the beginning of his campaign to now has shown that he has some mental issues at the least but talks along side Trump on a lot of things and totally disregards everything else. I, for one pray everyday that God will bring TRUMP DOWN BEFORE HE CAN DO THINGS THAT CAN NEVER BE UNDONE. And although i doubt Trump will be in the White House a year from now, i am scared of what he may be able to before he is forced out of office.
In spite of our basic political differences, we share concerns about President Trump’s coping skills and his tethers to reality. The political parties and the executive branch need to inform Mr. Trump’s decision making in regards to policy errors and the rule of law respectively.
For example, the Muslim Ban is under court order to stay its execution, so Sally Yates refused to enforce it pending judicial review. Trump’s summary firing is a profound error in terms of rule of law and the proper workings of our constitutional republic.
The Muslim Ban is also a major policy blunder.
For example General Mattis cannot bring our Iraqi allies in the war on terror to Washington for consultation, nor train the elite Iraqi counter terrorist units in the US anymore. Moreover it alienates Iraqi patriots who are risking their lives to crush ISIS.
For another example, our high technology industry is being undermined. Apple is planning bring legal action in defense of its employees. America has long relied on the best and brightest to immigrate to our shores. Trump is undermining that with his ham fisted broad stroke executive orders.
Trump’s emotional instability compounds the difficulties our Government, our nation, and our citizenry, be they Muslim, Christian, of no religion at all.
because i am sure that Websters definition is different from what a politician is when we are talking about those at the federal level. Here is my definition. ” SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT DO WHAT’S RIGHT (FOR THE COUNTRY) BUT INSTEAD, DOES WHAT IS RIGHT TO GET HIS OR HERSELF REELECTED. And that, more than anything else is the reason why Donald Trump could be Adolf Hitler or Charles Manson and still get support from those individuals who mistakingly call themselves politicians , which , compared to what they have become, is really
not that bad. But for politicians like Ryan, it’s all about doing whatever it takes to get reelected. The only way that our congress will ever do what is right for the country as a whole instead of what is going to get me reelected is to:
1. Pass term limits for congress members just like we have them for the President.
2. Prohibit lobbying congress.
Anyone who doubts whether these two rules should be there should think about this.
Congress will probably never restrict handgun sales because they are afraid of the influence of the N. R. A. , (The National Rifle Association.) Those of us who are logically thinking individuals know that when our forefathers wrote The “Declaration of Independence “and The” Constitution”, They did not and could not have known that giving us this right would lead into the gun violence that we now have.
Sadly, people use these labels instead of searching for actual facts and reality. This is why political debate has become a useless activity – people bandy about labels and never think what those highly abstract terms actually mean. So the GOP is “Conservative, God Fearing, Anti-Abortion, Hard Working American” while the Democrats are “Atheists, academic, evolutionists who hate America and deny God”. “Conservatives” think Trump is one of them. Sadly, he is a certifiable Narcissist with antisocial tendencies, who is a serial adulterer, self confessed molester of women, showman, who quoted from “Two Corinthians” and waffled about abortion. Now he pretends to be a devout Christian who loves God, hates abortion, cares nothing about the environment, and cannot tolerate criticism of any kind. His narrow mind cannot detect, understand, or deal with complexity.
GOP, you created this mess, time to end the disaster you’ve created.
Read this, then think about how CLOSE we really are to having a police-state dictatorship.
DSM-5: The Ten Personality Disorders: Cluster B

Disorders in this cluster share problems with impulse control and emotional regulation.
Believe me, it is a worry every time I visit a big city or tourist destination. It is. But remember ” land of the free and home of the brave?” It should be what we Americans are, if we lived up to our beliefs. We stay vigilant and we trust our security apparatus. We don’t extinguish civil liberties.
Or perhaps Trump will turn out to be another Schwarzenegger, just reverse everything when he realizes his popularity drop will damage future business opportunities or acting roles.
His handlers used an onslaught of sophistries, manipulations. Innuendo, and outright lies, successfully, to secure him the presidency, and his followers were happily deaf and blind to his outrageous behavior, intemperance, and glaring lack of qualifications. Now they have suceeded in delegitimizing *all* of the more respected news outlets. They are gunning for a complete annihilation of standardization and consensus in public education, they’re squelching scientific research and intellectual discourse, and they are well on the way to convincing their party that the opposition is, without exception, the spawn of Satan.
This is no slippery slope. It is an aerodynamic, well lubed, turbocharged projectile on a carefully calibrated trajectory.
