Emergency
          Danger America…Danger!

Never mind, there is no danger, even in his speech from the Rose Garden yesterday Donald Trump could not keep the rationale for his declaration of a national emergency straight.

“There is a crisis at the border!” Followed by, “I didn’t need to do this right now.”

There is no crisis at the border, with the exception of the humanitarian crisis caused by the inhuman policies of the T-Rump’s administration.

Don’t panic, not over that. That does not mean you should not worry. The republicans in congress are enabling this mad-man, giving up every pretention that they have any core beliefs at all. They are allowing him to take the country over the cliff, and the American way is in tatters.

Even my father, who served twenty-two years in the military, Marine Corps and Airforce combined, and followed that up with a second career as a federal law enforcement officer, even he makes excuses for T-Rump, demands that people should respect him, simply because he is “Our President,” he does this with no shame even as T-Rump operates his criminal regime out of the house, demonstrating that he prefers the intelligence assessment of Vladimir Putin over our own institutions, on a host of issues pertaining to national security and our alliances. He gives that orange monster a pass while watches the man attack and undermines the institutions like NATO that have kept the world safe and which my father spent his entire life serving.

It is mystifying, and an example of how disgraceful rank partisanship can be.

How is it that roughly one third of country cannot tell that they are being lied to, they cannot tell, and the guy lying to them doesn’t even try to hide it, he just lies, and lies so profusely, that it all comes off like a bad joke.

Wake America, abandon this guy. It is time to put an end to this foolishness. What we are dealing with in Donald Trump, the challenges that his administration is putting the country through, it is not game.

It might feel like a game when you are having a friendly argument with your pals and your family members; issue a couple of witticisms, tell a couple of jokes, maybe you think you have scored a point or to if you successfully argue someone down.

But this is not a game, it is the American way of life that is on the line. It’s our constitutional republic, democracy itself that is at stake. We cannot allow the chief executive to usurp the authority of congress, to ignore the demands of the courts, to profit from his business dealings with foreign governments, and to sleep with the enemy.

Donald Trump is a traitor, he is an agent of the former head of the KGB. This is not a game, it is not a joke or some kind of weird comedy, it’s a tragedy, and there are lives hanging in the balance.
