Donald Trump Is Blowing Up The American Century While Under-Educated Supporters Open Another Beer And Scratch Themselves

June 9, 2018

With James’ relatives in town much of the day was spent ‘on the go’.  While much fun was had by all in Madison it was amazing to hear the reaction from random conversations around the city to the absolutely deranged and unhinged actions and words from Donald Trump about the G-7.

Trump said he was pulling the U.S. out of the G7 official statement of common values and accused Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau, the host of the G-7 conference, of “false statements.”   This from Trump, who the Washington Post’s Fact-Checker blog has been keeping a strict count of  regarding his many misstatements, untruths, and outright lies!  Good Lord!  In May, Trump topped 3,000 untrue or misleading statements in 466 days in office.  So it goes without saying that Trump should not be the one talking about “false statements.”

Just to put Trump’s lies into an easier to think about framework consider that most people urinate between six and seven times a day.  That is also the number of lies that Trump has told each day–on average–since taking the oath of office.  Every time you go to the bathroom, Donald Trump is flushing the truth.   Think about that the next time you are in the bathroom.

Trudeau, someone this blogger loves because he is smart and very able to master issues, (and lets be honest also is Handsome!) sharply criticized Trump’s tariffs and promised Canada would answer with its own on July 1 unless the United States reversed course.  And Trudeau would be perfectly in line to make such a call for his country.  While a trade war is not what is in the best regards for world economies, if Trump wants to start one it will be joined by others.  It will then a joy to watch the Trump voters squirm in rural parts of the country where farm products will be targeted.

Said Trudeau: “I highlighted directly to (Trump) that Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry. Particularly, they did not take lightly that it’s for a national security reason that for Canadians … who stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far off lands in conflicts from the first World War onward, it’s kind of insulting. Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around.”

Joe Scarborough stated tonight that, “Americans love and respect our brothers and sisters in Canada, Britain, France, Germany and the rest of the world who stood with us through the Cold War and after September 11th. Thank you! We are forever grateful and will prove it with our votes this fall.”

Tonight Senator John McCain issued his reaction saying, “To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn’t.”

I agree—as a liberal Democrat.  Our alliances and the world relationships developed over decades mean something to the vast majority in this nation. I am also pro-trade and very much an internationalist.

It would appear to this blogger that Trump is a quisling sent by Russian President Putin with personal instructions to do everything he can to destroy the G7, which is interesting in light of what the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats had to say today.

He told the Atlantic Council that Russia “is attempting to influence the midterm elections in the United States in November as well as divide the transatlantic alliance.”

Coats said Russia had already undertaken an “unprecedented influence campaign to interfere in the US electoral and political process” in 2016 and has also meddled in France, Germany, Norway, Spain, and Ukraine.

He added: “These Russian actions are purposeful and premeditated and they represent an all-out assault, by Vladimir Putin, on the rule of law, Western ideals and democratic norms.”

The only people in the nation not aware of the concerns that this all adds up to for the world’s major economics are those simpletons who cast a ballot for Trump.  Those same people today are not even pondering, when sober and not scratching, that the six countries of the G-7–without the United States–are a bigger market taken together than the American market.

And so it goes……
