My Original Article

Never mind Donald Trump’s penchant to provide attention-getting play by play analysis to bloody wrestlers, boxers or UFC fighters, back in the day Trump not only chickened his way out of military service, he likely didn’t go to Woodstock ‘cause he couldn’t get box seats! I’ve disdained Trump ever since he ripped off Andy Warhol on the Trump Tower artwork.

Politically, Trump is a billionaire oligarch who primarily plays with other oligarchs. He’s attentive only among those who pander, those able to make deals on his behalf: evangelical preachers, those on the violent side of sports promotion and nearly all of America’s second amendment adherents. He has coopted the Koch Brothers side of Libertarianism. Were it not for the fact largely rural evangelist Americans number around 100 million people, Trump would have no political base.

Were it not for the fact Americans didn’t want two Bushes and two Clintons in four of the past five presidencies, Trump never would have become president. Think. If HRC were elected in 2016 and then re-elected in 2020. It would have meant a Bush or a Clinton at the top of 10 of the last 11 presidential administrative terms dating back to Reagan-Bush (remember HRC was secretary of state during one of Barak Obama’s two terms).

Americans didn’t want a monarchy-like system, so Trump won. The Clinton political machine originally thought were Trump to become the GOP nominee he’d be easy to defeat. But Hillary was full of fleas on many fronts and thus the odds changed much to the chagrin of her highly-paid political operatives. It was from this backdrop Russiagate was concocted, in classic Karl Rovian form: “Hey — if they can play dirty, we can also!” But it all backfired and Trump won a term.

By the way, Trump legitimately lost in 2020 — but that’s a whole ‘nother story!

For the record, it is possible to hate Trump and to hate Russiagate at the same time. This is my position. My politics are way left. Like Julian Assange, I do not believe in violence. I also think Russia is more concerned with defending its borders than it is with taking an aggressive posture in the world. I firmly believe Russia, and most other nations on our planet, would have preferred a Bernie Sanders-like presidency rather than the warmongering of a Trump, Clinton or a Bush.

Remember, the objective is not to kill the world, but rather work to make it a better place! Live Together or Die!!! Regarding insight on Russia? I strongly recommend that folks read the writing and analysis of the late Stephen F. Cohen (R.I.P.).
