Trump Ramps Up War Rhetoric
As he escalates his war of words with North Korea even further, is Donald Trump trying to pull off a 21st century version of Richard Nixon's Vietnam madman routine?
Or is he just plain crazy?
Donald Trump's threats against North Korea continued Friday - as the President took to Twitter to make another bellicose warning. He said:
"Military solutions are now fully in place,locked and loaded,should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!"
The madman routine never worked for Nixon, so what does Trump think he's doing? Former New Hampshire Republican Senator Gordon Humphrey says Trump's threats against North Korea show why he should be removed from office. In a letter sent Wednesday to Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster, he said:
"Donald Trump has shown repeated contempt for informed and wise counsel. He is sick of mind, impetuous, arrogant, belligerent, and dangerous.
Donald Trump should be relieved of the powers of the Presidency at the earliest date."
Could Trump actually be crazy?
is he crazy for calling out big pharma for their crimes against humanity?
Bitte, all you rational Republicans (if any still exist), at least for the sake of your own enkelkinder if for no one else, call your representatives today and every day to demand this truly dangerous, scary clown be stripped of his office before he acts out his delusional stupidity any further. On what grounds? Meine Gott, get your head out of Fux New's arsch!
Trump wants N Korea to send some missiles toward Guam. That would give him the excuse he needs to start a war. For all its bluster, I don't believe that N Korea is suicidal. I also doubt that there is much chance that even one out of four missiles has a decent chance of actually hitting land, and don't believe that they have developed a nuclear bomb that can be delivered by a missile that is likely to actually detonate. They have tested fission bombs and shot missiles, but have never combined the two technologies and tested them.
All his noise is the smoke screen while the republicans attempt to sneak the illegal destruction of the social security system, commonly referred to as corporate raiding.
What has Trump ever done to display mental stability either before or since the election? Of course he nuts, just watch the look on his wife's face when she stands near him. If his claim of the largest inauguration crowd ever wasn't proof of his Hitler like delusions, I have no idea what would be.
Crooked Donny's entire life has been one giant delusional farce, but hey, three out of ten still approve. Problem is, Pence would rip this country apart just as well as Trump is doing.
Why do we think a first time for everything solution doesn't apply to a hostile power fomenting an illegitimate election? Our founders were not spooked by George III just because nobody had declared independence from him before. I'm damn well sick of hearing that there is no option here. I know one thing..."whenever any form of government becomes destructive to the ends where the consent of the governed is not honored, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it."
As the old Southern saying goes, "crazy as a betsy bug."
Is Rumpty Dumpty crazy? Does a bear shit in the woods? Is th Pope a Catholic? These and other curious question will haunt me in my sleep.
One good thought does not equal X x uncountable tweet blunders and self incriminating tweeting,and yes, Rump is nuttyer than a 30 year old Christmas fruit cake.

Where are all the right wing Loons today?
Oh, some of us are here. We just sleep during the evening hours.
Just now opening up our overnight Christmas gifts and thanking you leftie/socialists for yet another wonderful day.
Why haven't the national news publications or television stations brought up the fact that DT endorsed LePenn in the French Presidential Election? Here is another big indicator of the Presidents' alt right beliefs!
It really doesn't matter who is president, the policies are the same. Ever since the Bush43 led coup d'etat, certain policies have been pursued and it doesn't matter whether it is a Democrat or a Republican in office, things remain the same. The N. Koreans, during the Bush administration offered to de-escalate but Bush43 scuttled that. Under Obama, the N. Koreans again profferd a stabilizing peace plan which Obama flatly turned down. All of this inflammatory language out of Trump is at the behest of the military-industrial complex that has been, and continues to poke sticks into the eye of any other nation available to start another war. And the real reason for war with N. Korea is (1) an excuse to ramp up the military and siphon off even more money from us taxpayers, and (2) N. Korea is a mountain of untapped minerals and precious metals that is worth gah-jillions to the industrialists. However, these idiots somehow forget that nuclear bombs have radio-active fall-out that traels the world on the winds. If they had two live brain cells between the lot of them, they'd have a real close look at the devastation that took place in Japan after we bombed them, and realize that there are NO WINNERS with this type of aggression. I'll say it again: The real problem is We, the People, who are sitting back and accommodating all of this insanity. Too many people are on the corporate payroll; to include over half of the people who work in government jobs who are actually subcontract workers provided by the private sector, and not true public sector worker for the government at all. So, when we hear this argument about government being too big, it's a Red Neck, Red Herring, false, Red Flag, LIE.
I thankErinrose for the fantastic comments. Corporations are the problem in this country and have been for over 40 years.
WE are crazy! We keep electing either neo liberals or neo conservatives (Bill Clinton, Barack Obama) or idiots (GWB, Donald Trump) to high office. Isn't that Einstein's definition of "crazy"? Doing the same things over and over again, expecting different results?
