Certain Comments Make You Wonder

“My main question is why the Republicans, spearheaded by Nunes, Jordan, and Goetz, are undermining the investigation and supporting Trump.

The answer seems to be that Republicans believe in a strong state that will break labor unions, set minorities against each other, weaken public education, and strengthen monopoly capitalism.

Their ideology overrides any internal doubts about the messenger.”

Devin Nunes is going after Rod Rosenstein to torpedo Robert Mueller’s investigation of the president. It’s that simple. Rosenstein is the underpinning of the Special Prosecutor’s probe, and should the Deputy AG go away, so will the investigation of the president, reasons Nunes. That’s not upholding law and order and Nunes and the Republicans know it.

The president owes his election to the FBI and James Comey. The field agents within the bureau did not want Secretary Clinton to win and there was something of a palace revolt against Comey to release his letter to reopen the investigation of the Secretary. Thus, Comey and the FBI handed the presidency to the GOP candidate on a silver platter, and this is how Republicans show their gratitude. The GOP and this president are bonded by similar antisocial attitudes which is why they are such a perfect match for each other.

Trump virtually declared war on North Korea last night. It is now only a matter of time till the first strikes of that war.

Trump so very much fears the charge that he’s “all talk, no action” that he is jettisoning the strategy of patience and diplomacy and a unified front with other nations so he can “go it alone” to prove his strength. (His bone spurs have miraculously healed.)

Oh, yes, Trump made a plea for national unity last night. But new reports say Trump believes national unity will result only from another event like 9/11. Or a war.

We Americans must take to the streets before the bombs start to fall and the artillery begins to fire. Trump’s bellicosity makes war inevitable unless we stop him in the street — and stop his war before it starts..

Goldberg assembles some terrifying pieces:
–The derailing of Victor Cha’s proposed ambassadorship to South Korea after Cha “expressed reservations about a preventative American strike on North Korea.”
–The public parade of the grief of Otto Warmbier’s parents, whose innocent son was tortured and ultimately died at the hands of the North Korea, bringing the cameras back a second time to linger on their faces, red and contorted in unmitigated pain.
–The exhortation of Ji Seong-ho, who was maimed by North Korean famine and believes Christians have a duty to destroy the regime, to raise his crutches in defiance and perhaps a call to arms.

And there is yet another–one that pulls these pieces together in even more frightening context: Previewing his address, our president decried the country’s lack of unity, spanning back several presidents, and touted his ambition to be the great unifier. Then he went on; “I would love to bring our country’s back in a great form of unity without a major event–very tough to do. I would like to do it without a major event because usually that major event is a bad thing. Unity is what I’m really striving for, to bring the country together.”

Reading Goldberg’s column in this context brought terror to my soul. In his desperation to be free of the Russia investigation and his driving boundless need to be the most “tremendous success” in presidential history, would our president actually start a holy war?

President Trump is foreshadowing his next move. We need a “unifying event” to bring this country together and for him to get the love he so desperately graves and that he believes is owed to him. Republicans in Congress need to act immediately to limit his authority to deploy nuclear weapons. Otherwise, consciously or unconsciously he is going to get us into a war, probably with North Korea. He had producers to reign him in when he got too crazy on “The Apprentice”. Chillingly, right now, he has free reign to write whatever final script that he wants.
