My pilgrimage: Chapter Eight: The Trump Cards
By Michael Moriarty
The Trump, 60-missile-show-of-free-world-power!
Before the rather captive audience of Red China’s President Xi Jinping at Mara Lago, President Trump’s profile as an isolationist head of state ended.
Not only did the President’s missile strike on one of Syria’s air force bases end his previous promise to stay out of the Middle East, it also destroyed the obvious myth that Donald Trump had made an unbreakable alliance with Vladimir Putin of Neo-Soviet Russia.
That Trump/Putin Honeymoon is over.
So is Trump’s isolationism.
With his assertion of Presidential power? Neil Gorsuch, a traditional conservative judge, was confirmed as a justice of the Supreme Court!
Donald Trump is now a President operating on all the fronts he was inevitably obliged to act in.
America, as it has for most of her existence, is again the indisputable leader of the free world.
Why? We have a vibrantly active American patriot as President of the United States: Donald Trump.
The increasingly shocking, anti-American Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama is more than a thing of the past.
Some think, however, that since Obama was never impeached by Congress he can’t be arrested for anything he did as President, including treason.
That is a tragic state of affairs which may well lead to a prolonged Second American Civil War, a nightmare insured by the apparently unlimited powers possessed by a President who cannot be prosecuted, after his Presidency, for undeniable treason.
President Obama could, of course, have been impeached!
Failures to impeach either Richard Nixon or Bill Clinton may have contributed to the reluctance of Congress to even discuss such a prosecution of Obama.
Thank God for the arrival of Donald Trump!
America’s increasing impotence has ended!
The entire human race begins to look lost without a healthy American Presidency!
The increasingly sick legacies of America’s previous four Presidents, from George H. W. Bush to William Clinton to George W. Bush to Barack Hussein Obama?!
What spawned that rabidly nervous breakdown?! The successful assassination of John F. Kennedy.
No, I don’t for one second believe that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone culprit! I am obviously not the only one that refuses to buy the lies of the Warren Report.
From then on?! An Anti-American President such as Barack Hussein Obama became inevitable.
From November 22, 1963 to Obama’s last day in office?! With the exception of Ronald Reagan who also suffered an assassination attempt, all the other Presidents, from Johnson to Nixon to Ford to Carter to George H. W. Bush to Clinton to George W. Bush to Obama?! What a profoundly undistinguished and unsuccessful set of Presidencies they are.
Given the deplorable condition of the American government following the Kennedy assassination, indeed, “The Swamp”, as President Trump has described it?! With the exception of the two Reagan terms, those 53 years saw corruption in Washington, D.C. at an increasingly shameless level!
Nothing is more revealing about the unconscionable gall of Presidential treason than George H. W. Bush’s still-floating dreams of a New World Order.
God willing, Donald Trump’s Presidency will put dreams of a New World Order to rest and the world as-it-has-usually been can return to some semblance of its traditional absurdity.
