It’s Only Just A Matter of Trump

I have always been defiant of authority. I may be ten ways wrong, but I refuse to be silent. I guess that’s why I became a writer. In hopes of no war for a while, I am a poet until death, Stella L. Crews
 

I don’t know how many ways to apologize for the politics practiced in usa presently. I have gone from amazed, to shocked, to angry, to embarrassed. Now, as the process comes to a close (time is not something we keep very well here, everyone must weigh in) around January 2019 with 2020 around the corner, my only hope is that our Congress (House of Representatives and Senate) is composed of Democrats and Republicans who are sane, unafraid, unbribed or bullied, or bought, and own integrity. (I apologize also for the length of the previous sentence, I have always been verbose). That outcome is filled with the hopes and hopefully the actions of voters in November 2018 at the polls. My governor of Michigan is up for election and I did not vote for him before, so that will not change, but if I was a Republican loyalist, I’d vote for the Democrat because the incumbent likes Trump’s politics. Also because Flint, Michigan’s adults and kids were poisoned by water that he did not correct. The problem still exists. I am a writer. It is in my nature to be optimistic. I want to see Democrats mess up for a change.

People world-wide love the ground The Donald violates and corrupts with vile influence and child-like tantrums. We used to beat up kids with that much hubris when we were kids, but then we were Detroiters and did not respect much of anybody. But they love him. Think he is beating the system at its own game, standing  up for the little guy. Trump without the “T” is out for only TRUMP. He wants to make Trump great again – I know you’ve heard all the jokes. Like: What do you get if you throw Trump in a toilet with a bunch of crap and flush? A really offended toilet. Those.
.
Trump inherited wealth and is spoiled brat-ish and an egomanical little boy. Worse, a little racist white boy. (f.y.i. Note, in Ebonics, to call a white man a little white boy is the highest put down). Cross him, do not obey, and he throws stones – really big stones to crush you absolutely. He hates instead of leads, he dictates instead of conducts himself like a human with a mind to help people and not do them harm; to destroy them instead of elevate them.  At least put on the face of helping the people who elected and depend on you. Laws mean nothing to him, he breaks them like toys he no longer likes. Ethics is not in his lexicon. What is going to be fun reading is the books that come out after he is no longer Prez. I’m like a little kid in a candy store at the prospect.
.
Truth, justice, (you know the lip service) is what we used to stand for. Okay, so practicing it is not all it’s cracked up to be, but we at least used to try to live up to the really big altruistic principles, sort of. When we are not bombing the shi… Sorry. Its been a while, I kinda remember the positive side of government. It’s all crooked as a generality may have merit, but it used to do some good. You remember the rebuild after WWII after we divided up the world and left Russia out. Then. That part is just kinda vague right now, rebuilding, reinvesting, taking over the world. There is absolutely no excuse for Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Little white boys dreamed that one up. Again, apologies. With all sincerely.
.
The thing, dear world, is this: we’re broke and live in debt. Really big debt. When that bubble bursts, we all go down anyway. I once stated, and was mightily called wrong, that Republicans mess up the economy and Democrats inherit debt and have to clean up the mess and be blamed for the trashed economy. Well, I’ve been voting since 1972, lived through some of the most unusually motivated police actions and world stage bombing runs in the history of the world and still I am befuddled by Grand Old Party (Republican) politics. The Conservative Right gave the rich a tax break for cryin’ out loud! When that bill comes due, run!
.
How could a usa Prez lie? Throw black women out of one of his pre-election rallies and still win? How could the Trumpster Gangstah defend Russia over his own Defense and Justice operatives, and cage Nicaraguans children after separating them from their beloveds, and, and, and… Now, I know you can’t quit your country, but Canada was looking good there for a while. Bad boy political bloopers against really powerful and intelligent european women leaders  was a whopper. I kinda admired Merkle and May slapping him down. Bitch slapping was definitely in order.
.
Then I remembered, only four years of this baloney must be endured. We are big enough to wait this out, huh? Yeah, it is this not knowing what is going to happen over the next few minutes that is killing me. You can’t plan if no money is pouring in from usa, huh? You are afraid the pork barrel will go empty and the well will run dry, huh? You should be afraid. You should be very afraid. We’re broke. Send money via Instagram. Tax deduction non-tariff donations are welcome.
.
Patience is taxed daily and harshly and now “tweets” are being reviewed as a way to prove some misdeed or other. Obstruction of justice is how they got Nixon, by the way. I just heard that the Mueller investigators who are weighing facts to charge the Prez for collusion with Russia, has his tax returns. Not THE tax returns. We’re still waiting for Trump’s medical results – he might have a brain tumor, but he bribed his physician to lie for him. Promised him a high post in his government. Is that legal? It certainly is not very nice. Patience used to be virtuous, huh?
.
Once out of office, Presidents are usually waived from crimes (respect for the office) and protected from prosecution by the Courts and private citizens, corporations, his two remaining friends, and GOP leaning conservative political entities. Historic precedents may change. Some people have earned cage time. (Writer’s note: this commentary is slanted to the far left).
.
Racist, liar, womanizer, fake mafioso boss, international wimp, russian collusionist, did I say liar and coward. I can not stop feeling for the guy who had three days to go after 27 years of service in the government who Trump fired out of spite to insure that he could not collect his entire retirement package. That made no sense, one, and two it is hoped that the next President gives the gentleman patriot his retirement. He served the federal government of usa loyally and diligently for 27 years to get fired by an idiot. An Executive Order would do it. We are not above compassion for all the victims, I mean those who were crushed, by Trump and his fascist regimists. I’m still drying my tears because he made Rachael Maddow cry on her politically saavy tv show. She broke down when she heard as breaking news that the children of immigrants were being taken away from the families. I cried too. I’m a mother. I think a judge in California did not like that he made Rachael cry either. She broke down right on tv and they had to fade to another commentator. Such moments are pivotal and change history and opinions, minds, and votes. Did you see Time Magazine, the little Nicaraguan child looking up at Trump crying. Hearts broke all over again.
.
Trump wants to recommend the next Supreme Court Justice. One resigned (Kennedy) and The conservative Supreme Court will mess with the laws of this land for the next thirty years. Yet, I have faith that because judges are under no compulsion but their own consciences and understanding of the laws of the land, that there may be good jurisprudence practiced by the Nine, whatever their political affiliations. That little section that says they can not be removed from office is a nice little clause in The Constitution. They head up the third pillar of our Republic, The Judiciary (note world, we are a Democratic Republic, not a Democracy – we elect those to speak for us because we are too dumb to be entrusted with a Referendum).  Supreme Court Justices can resign. Or die in office. Only. Nice touch, founding sires.
.
Again, apologies to the world, we were hit by high tech devices, super surveillance and security crashing, rap music, video games, and the latest British Invasion: Harry Potter. We are pretty dumbed-down in every articulation of the denotations of dumbed-down; we rigged an election with Communist help from outside the country. Wow! Didn’t think the parties we vote for would have let THAT happen. But they did, which means we did (we voted them in office). Ultimately, we are responsible people and must shoulder all the blame. Therefore, I apologize for falling asleep and not seeing the impossible. I am not apologizing for Trump. There is no excuse for him.
.
Just a few observations. They say that today (every day) the Prez is really upset in the oval office. “Crooked Hillary” (Clinton( is not working; summits are not distracting enough – just scaring a bunch of folks dependent on usa handouts and trade imbalances, et al is not duping the voters, and he can not fire Mr. Mueller or Mr. Rosenstein (the Republicans in Congress won’t let him in a show of actually packing some balls to avoid obstruction of justice charges that Trump can not see coming his way. Again apologies. The 0ffice, the Office must be respected. “Fake news” is no longer working, people eventually want to hear the truth. So he attacks Jeff Sessions, the cabinet member,  the Attorney General of the USA, who Trump appointed during a gazillion rounds of firing staffers. The Southern Boy scrapper who takes no crap from Northerners and folks disloyal to him and his agenda as in “Whadda ya mean we have to give the Nicaraguan kids back to their families? We had ‘em in cages, and can keep ‘em as slaves in the South if nobody else wants ‘em, dad burn it!” Or some such. Jeff barely got confirmed due to his racists comments and policies and supporters.
.
Two Red Necks walked into a Biloxi, Mississippi bar . . . You get a little discombobulated following this stuff. Facts become hazed over by really interesting falsehoods like (paraphrased) “I did not pay $130 k to Stormy” to “Yes, I did” to “Stormy who?” He wanted to cover up an affair with a stripper, queen of porn who is a business woman, rich, and not afraid of the man she knows to be a coward. She has a saavy lawyer and is all over the Trumplet like white on, well, Trump. (I’m African American and I just like messin’ with white people, is all.) Hey post 1968, they let me go to college and take four philosophy classes. I’ve been this way since then and probably was this way before then.
.
So, the tax returns are in Mueller’s fists and we may be informed just how broke Trump is – which would explain promises of great wealth from Kim and Vladmir – and which explains him saying “Wouldn’t it be nice if we did not have elections here (like in Russia & China).” Perhaps the Mueller investigation is waiting for Trump to file his next “fake” taxes to the Federal Government’s Internal Revenue Service. He will be explaining where all the money came from that he earned during his tenure as prez. (Note: Trump’s businesses are supposed to be in receivership with him having absolutely no say in running them. He may not use the office of the POTUS–presoftheus–to make money. It’s the law.) 
.
I wonder why no one has shot him yet. I know Merkle and May are wondering that too. Canada is considering a wall. If they were, I would not blame them. I imagine (in my idle moments) that Trump calls for the nuclear arsenal to pulverize Myanmar (Burma) and when he asks for the other official’s launch codes, a general pulls out his service weapon and solves the world’s threat of assured nuclear holocaust. I know, far out thinking, but I’m a usa’er and this is how we got in this mess in the first place: woolgathering and wishin’ & hopin’.
.
I really want to see Trump’s tax returns. I want to snicker at him. Not a billionaire (YES!), not a multi-millionaire? So, how about those off-shore accounts Donald? I want to howl at the moon in heat for his fall from status. Reality check: he’ll get off without a scratch and his rich uber 1%ers will protect him from prosecution for crimes against usa. We have a hard time getting honorable people to run for President so forgiving them with a blanket pardon is for a reason. Crimes against humanity is an option. Is the Haig still there? 😀
.
The thing about people who defend The Donald, usa’s child Prez, is that they only attack the speaker and have no facts to back up their claims of how wonderful their hero is. (I am so sorry about that verb at the end of the previous sentence.) Have you noticed that bullying is the posture of Trump supporters defending against anyone bad mouthing their candidate and prez elect. Bring it! I have a satchel full of “Yo mama jokes” and I’m ready as in: “Yo mama so short, when she get on the bus she has to slam dunk her change.” That 20% of the usa voter population is really dumb and to those around the world who love Trump, I am so glad I am not you. I keep thinking, Jesus, this is a good time to come back.
.
We have no immigration policy in place in the usa. Can’t afford one. We’re broke. We gave a nice fat tax break to the uber rich (2018) and the 1%ers who own 90% of usa wealth and now the next government formed of Democrats (it is hoped) will have no money to fix whatever ills befall the country, let alone the world. Kileaua, you better not explode and take out Hawaii. We will treat you like we treated Puerto Rico. What was that phrase from the 60’s ” Burn baby burn!” Sorry State of Hawaii. Cheap shot that. California is on fire and we are sending help. But then, California has 55 Electoral College Votes needed to re-elect Trump. Hawaii only has 4. You gotta get inside the way these politicians in Washington, District of Columbia, think.
.
Tax hikes are not popular, but they will be necessary to clean up the catastrophes left in the Don’s wake. Trump did a few things right, (okay?) brought attention to the trade imbalance (oddly, but effectively) and got Putin to confess that he colluded in ordering his people to help Trump defeat Clinton. He also forced usa to adopt a legal stance on immigrants and how babies should be humanely treated (man oh woman, was that a lesson we all could have done without). Perhaps a comprehensive and comprehendable immigration policy will result. 
.
I find it hard to wait for the entire text of the Mueller investigation’s results and recommendations to The U.S. Congress. Trump has all the reports on his bedside table, and with his long time lawyer and friend spilling the beans (Mr. Michael Cohen) and powerful enemies in all the reporters he has insulted and political operatives he has fired, he has to be close to folding and resigning. Excuse me, that’s just me again. Who said usa denizens were not dreamers. I dream a world where Trump is in chains, caged, and deported. From such dreams, I have awakened and will wake up smiling.
.
I’m just sayin’,
