Say, Is There Anything Scarier Than Donald Trump With His Finger On Nuclear Trigger?

Once again, I’ll explain that my support Donald Trump is exceedingly low. If he ends up being the GOP candidate I will hold my nose wear a gas mask and vote for him, because it is better to have someone who at least says he’s a Republican, and work to keep the Senate and House. You won’t see any posts showing deep support for him. Sometimes, politics is simply about bad choices and worse choices, but you have to look at the big picture. Regardless, it is amusing how some are having utter meltdowns over Trump, ones that seem a bit beyond the normal over a GOP candidate. Here’s the NY Times’ Nicholas Kristoff

Donald the Dangerous

IS there any scarier nightmare than President Donald J. Trump in a tense international crisis, indignant and impatient, with his sweaty finger on the nuclear trigger?

Well, yes. Hillary even said it in 2008, it is Barack H. Obama having to answer a 2am call, something he has failed at numerous times. On the bright side, Obama tends to surrender. Then hit the golf course.

“Trump is a danger to our national security,” John B. Bellinger III, legal adviser to the State Department under President George W. Bush, bluntly warned.

Really? Did Trump employee a person who used a home brew, unsecure server in contradiction to regulations and laws, which exposed national security information, everything from privileged communications to the highest levels of communication? Did Trump call ISIS the “JV team”? Did Trump sign a deal with Iran, which essentially kicks the can for Iran’s nuclear ambitions down the road while enriching Iran’s government coffers?

Most of the discussion about Trump focuses on domestic policy. But checks and balances mean that there are limits to what a president can achieve domestically, while the Constitution gives a commander in chief a much freer hand abroad.

That’s what horrifies America-watchers overseas. Der Spiegel, the German magazine, has called Trump the most dangerous man in the world. Even the leader of a Swedish nationalist party that started as a neo-Nazi white supremacist group has disavowed Trump. J. K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, reflected the views of many Britons when she tweeted that Trump is worse than Voldemort.

Oh, thank God, I don’t know what we would have done without the opinion of kid’s books writer. Of course, this is not to say Trump isn’t a fool on international policy

Asked about Syria, Trump said last year that he would unleash ISIS to destroy Syria’s government. That is insane: ISIS is already murdering or enslaving Christians, Yazidis and other religious minorities; executing gays; destroying antiquities; oppressing women. And Trump wants ISIS to capture Damascus? (snip)

Trump has also called for more U.S. troops on the ground in Iraq, and raised the prospect of bombing North Korean nuclear sites. A poorly informed, impatient and pugnacious leader can cause devastation, and that’s true of either Kim Jong-un or Donald Trump.

Yeah, that’s level 10 stupidity. Fortunately, there are typically people who are continuously in government, such as those who sit on the Joint Chiefs, who can say “yeah, um, President Trump, that’s pretty darned crazy.” Not in those words, of course.

The third risk is to America’s reputation and soft power. Both Bush and President Obama worked hard to reassure the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims that the U.S. is not at war with Islam. Trump has pretty much declared war on all Muslims.

Um, no. He’s took a position against all those who have radical leanings, and has stated that those who hold positions compatible with American values should not be here. And he’s 100% correct.

There’s something heartbreaking about the prospect that America’s next commander in chief may be a global joke, a man regarded in most foreign capitals as a buffoon, and a dangerous one.

Well, we’ve spent over 7 years with a guy who is a joke on the international stage, at least by foreign leaders.

It all seems a bit beyond the normal election season freakout, possibly because the Establishment is horrified that someone might get the nomination per the voters that they cannot control, that is not part of their little clique.

“I don’t support Donald Trump but will defend him.”

What does “support” mean to you, LOL?

The Republican Party is littered with con men like Trump, Cruz, Rubio and Paul Ryan. We will cut your taxes, spend more AND reduce the debt! It’s magic!

Trump is attracting 3 sets of folks: 1. nativists hoping to “Make America White Again!”, 2. a middle class tired of getting screwed by corporatist America, and 3. traditional right-wing authoritarian followers who want to be protected. Obviously, there’s a lot of overlap with the groups, especially 1 and 3. With 2, there is overlap with independents and Dems.

Trump told us last week that he has a big dick and that in 2012 Mitt Romney would have sucked it for a Trump endorsement. Trump knows his audience.

Democracy can be messy. Today’s message: The American people are showing what little confidence they have in our current governance.

The Republicans know their audience, too. They refused to govern with a Negro Democrat – now we have the “Make America White Again” coalition.

Ronald Reagan and reaganomics was the beginning of the end for the American working classes. The corporatist/anti-worker philosophy has sustained. Since then, tax policy, trade policy, union policy, monetary policy, patent/copyright policy, fiscal policy, not “natural” market forces – and all dictated by Republicans and Democrats both – have rewarded the wealthy political donor class at the expense of the working classes.

It’s reached the breaking point for working families and now we have Donald Trump to make it all better.

Household incomes, not just flat, but dropping. Infrastructure deteriorating. Services degrading. Pensions lost. Hope dying.

Since when do conservatives care what foreign leaders think?

You don’t get out much. Spend some time with foreign business representatives. The rest of the world despises American Republicans.

While American and Israeli conservatives view President Obama as a joke, the rest of the world does not.

We can wait and see what the rest of the world thinks of President Trump.

I don’t read J.K. Rowling’s books, nor have I seen any of the resulting movies.

From Wikipedia: Voldemort’s obsession with blood purity signifies his aim to rid the wizarding world of Muggle (non-magical) heritage and to conquer both worlds, Muggle and wizarding, to achieve pure-blood dominance.

But at least Ms. Rowling has created something out of nothing – entertaining books – not to mention hundreds of millions of dollars for her, her family and those who benefit from her work. I may be wrong but I don’t think she has ever gone bankrupt or received millions in gifts from her family. Her opinions are as valuable as Mr. Drumpf’s.

It sounds like Mr. Drumpf is about as bad as Voldemort.

Odds-on favorite Republican Donald Trump attacked Mexicans, Muslims, immigrants, women, the disabled… It took the endorsement from the KKK to get the GOP to try to rein him in.

What does it say with the Republicans that their voters PREFER Trump over Cruz, Christy, Rubio and Kasich?

As said, same things were said about Reagan. Climate scientists must be some of the same people that “predicted” all the bad things that were going to happen under Reagan, but of course did not. No group of fools could get so many things wrong

“Is there anything scarier..”? Why yes, that would be a Clinton or Sanders in the White House. J-“attacked Mexicans, Muslims, immigrants, women, the disabled…” Really? He set forth a policy against illegal immigrants of all races and a temporary ban on un-vetted Muslim immigrants. This is an attack…how? And proof of “attacks” against women and the disabled? Trump, of course, would be the first presidential candidate to attack anything-it’s never been done before. Seems J needs a fainting couch.

Plenty of bad things happened under Reagan. More than doubled the national debt. Intentionally engineered a recession that threw millions out of work. Started the demise of the working classes. Had dozens of his officials convicted. Iran-Contra, S & L meltdown, HUD scandal, EPA scandals, invasion of Grenada.

But the worst was his assault on the working classes.

It is amazing how Reagan engineered the crisis he inherited from the Dems, most specifically Carter. I know that most everyone in the US prospered as a result of his efforts and lower taxes. That is until Bush and Clinton began to tear it apart and resulted in the depression we have now, compounded by the stupidity of Obama. If only the Democratic run congress had cooperated with his efforts and reduced spending and the size of the government, we would likely still be doing very well.
