How Secure Is Our National Security?

Following is a comment I made that was prompted by a post related to tRumpsky’s selection of John Bolton as his new National Security Adviser.

I can’t help but wonder … are the “deplorables” so enthralled with their elected leader that they truly think he can do no wrong? Do they actually believe bringing on the war-monger Bolton is a “good thing”? And that we’ll just go in and “whup” No. Korea’s ass if Kimmy-baby tries to give us any more BS? And while we’re at it, we’ll just show Russia and Iran who’s boss as well?

If they truly support this perspective, have any of them considered that American just might not come out unscathed? Or are they so enthralled with the idea of MAGA that they’ve lost sight of everything else?

These are not rhetorical questions. I seriously question the mindset of those who are so enamored with the current POTUS (and Faux News) that they sincerely believe America is going to be the “winner” if we take a militaristic view towards other countries.

P.S. Even though tRumpsky leans towards a more pacifist view regarding Russia, Bolton has long been a Russia Hawk. It will be interesting (for lack of a better word) to see how things play out once the two of them sit down and discuss the situation face-to-face.

REBLOG: Timeline Of President’s Connections To Russia

Our totally innocent Leader …

For those republican representatives in the US House Intelligence Committee who think there is no good reason for the FBI’s Special Counsel Robert Mueller to continue with its investigation into the Trump Russia probe, as they found no proof of the republican President Donald Trump possibly having acted to collude with Russia in its full throttle attack in 2016 on our US presidential elections infrastructure, the following is a timeline showing the president’s ample ties to Russia.

First, these republicans led by their chairman of the House Intel committee, Rep. Devin Nunes of California, made several serious attempts to disparage the FBI and thus its Trump-Russia inquiry, which all backfired. And so, they are now shutting down their sham of an investigation down which pertained to Russia’s interference in US elections processes with a report absolving the president of having…

Living in the World of “The Apprentice”

“You’re Fired!”

And one more bites the dust.

The most recent “apprentice candidate” to be sent packing is Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State. He joins several other “candidates” who didn’t meet the boot-licking requirements of “The Boss.”

While not every person who has left the White House under tRumpsky’s reign has heard the infamous words, “You’re Fired!” several saw the writing on the wall and beat him to the punch. Others left with little fanfare, albeit in many cases under no small amount of pressure from he who sits in the plush leather chair.

Here is a list of the “has-beens”:

  • Sally Yates
  • Michael Flynn
  • Preet Bharara
  • Katie Walsh
  • James Comey
  • Andrew McCabe
  • Christopher Wray
  • Michael Dubke
  • Anthony Scaramucci
  • Hope Hicks
  • Walter Schaub
  • David Apol
  • Sean Spicer
  • Michael Short
  • Derek Harvey
  • Reince Priebus
  • Elaine Duke
  • George Sifakis
  • Steve Bannon

Some of these individuals have been replaced while others have not. But hey … it’s all about “small government,” is it not?

I’m sure many of you join me as I experience such comfort in knowing our government is being run by someone with such excellent judgment. Someone with such a keen sense of discernment that he knows (sometimes within a matter of days) whether a person will sufficiently kiss his ____.

And the show goes on.

P.S. This list is subject to change!

Regulating Gun Ownership

This is a video that EVERYONE needs to watch. Whether you liked Obama or not, he made some excellent common-sense statements/suggestions about gun ownership.

Too bad his point of view was pushed aside simply because (some) people didn’t like him as a person. Had things been different, perhaps we would not have witnessed the latest shooting.
